A NEGRO FROLIC.
One Negro Dead-Another Has Face
Shot Off-Whiskey and Gamb
On Sunday morning as a negro frol
ic was about coming to a close on
Mr. W. E. Merchant's place just -'=
side of Jalapa a general row seems
have been started.
There was a yard full and a house
full of negroes and it seems there was
some .wh.iskey and a few games of
craps and nearly every one had his
pis-col ready to take care of himself.
The shooting took place about one
o'clock in the morning. Wm. Turner
is dead with a bullet hole through his
temple entering the right temple and
coming out through the left temple.
Gilbert Clark has one side of his face
shot off and a bullet hole in his arm.
The coroner and the sheriff went
up Sunday morning and empanelled
a jury of inquest. A number of wit
nesses were examined but none of
them seemed to know anything albout
the matter at all. Except, perhaps,
that 'ehere was a large crowd present
and most of them had their guns. The
jury has not yet rendered a verdict.
Clark was evidently shot in the face
with the shotgun which it seems was
in the hands of Turner, but that be
ing true Clark could not have shot
Turner and Turner could not have
shot Clark in the arm with the pistol.
It is evident, therefore, that there
were others engaged in the shooting
besides Turner and Clark.
One of the witnesses testified that
there was a dispute over a small sack
of sugar and that this dispute gave
rise to the general row. It is more
probable that 'Ehe mean whiskey had
something to do with it.
Geo. kLee, colored, was living in the
house where the frolic was held.
This is the second inquest -held in
this -house by the coroner in.the past
three months. Lee's brother was shot
and killed by accident near the 'steam
mill and t.he inquest --ver him was

An Interesting Relic.
Mr. T. Hayne Chalmers 'brought to
our office an interesting relic, an old
family heirloom, a pair of old fash
ioned spectacles. They were brough:
over from Ireland probably 175 years
ago by his great-grandfather, the
father of Capt. JamesChalmers, whc
was the grandfather of Mr. Hayne
Chalmers. It is an interesting tradi
tion in the COhalmers family that the
glasses were made in Ireland, brought
over by 'the original Chalmers family,
and have been sacredly preserved.
They are very heavy and strongly
made of steel, nose bridge, made oi
'steel, apparently 'hand made, the
shanks also handmade and well riv
ited to the glass frame. There is
piece of steel riveted to t'he end ol
the shanks, at the ends of which
small ring is securely fastened--thes<
rings were evidently intrended anm
used to attach strings which could b<
tied around the head to keep th<
glasses in place as was usually th<
practice 'many years ago. Mr. Ohal
mers prizes the old relic very highly
and will hand it down to future gener
THE MOTHER'S NAME. (
The Lady Who Saved Her Little Boy
From Terrible Death on Flying
Passenger Train. (
The Herald and News of Friday
told the story of the almost miracu- <
lous rescue of a little boy by its moth
er on the northbound Columbia, New
bery and Laurens midday passenger I
train. The little fellow, it was stated,
was s-randing on the car seat by an I
open window when a sudden lurch in
the train hurled him out of the open I
window. But for the quick action of
'his mother, who was seated just be- r
hind him, a horrible death would have I
been inevitable. She caught the boy's I
ankle just as it was disappearing ox er t
the sill and held him fast until Capt. e
J. S. Land, who was near, came to her
Ihe Herald and News has re -eived
from 'Clinton a letter giving the name I
of the mother, and recounting the
fact that on the -same train was her e
husband, at the time seriously ill, and 5
who has since died. The letter is
Clinton, S. C., Oct. 14, 1905.
Dear Sirs: It seems hard for the r
newspapers to find out who the child
was that came so near falling from the
C. N. & L. train the other day. It ]
belonged to' the Rev. W. A. Pitts, of
Sumffer. Mr. Pitts had left the hospi
tal in Sumter that morning very sick,
and was -on his way to his father's
home. Mr. Pitts died on the 12th.
