Shooting On' The Train.
There was more or less drinking on
~some of the crowded trains returning
from the fair last week. On the C. N.
a L freight on last Thursday night
some negroes gotc rather unruly and
between Newberry and Jalapa began
-shooting. Gus Golden and John Bur
ton were arrested for shooting Ben
-Gallmnan. They were put under ar
-rest and taken on to Laurens. Sher
iff Buford brought them back to New
'berry and they are now in the New
berry jail. Dr. Gilder is attending
Gallman. It is understood that he is
not seriously hurt. Such reckless
shooting ought to *be severely dealt
with because it interferes with the
rights of others and endangers hu
man life. The constant killings we
read of only show how little regard is
-paid to the law against toting pistols.
'It will be so with any law where pub
lic sentiment is not in sympathy with
'the law and the best- people of the
.community go on violating it every

Tonight Supernatural Influences Will
Prevail-Entertainment in Ar
mory By Methodist Ladies.
"This is the nicht o' Halloween,
WIhen a' the witchie micht be seen;
Some o' them black, some o' them
Some o' them like a' turkey bean."
So will sing the bairn of Scotland
tonight, for it is the eve of All Hal
lows day, and the spirits of the dead
will wander abroad, and all the witch
es, devils and mischief-making elves
will hold their grand anniversary cele
But how many maidens outside the
land of Scott and Burns, perhaps in
America and possibly in South Caro
lina, maybe in Newberry, will eat an
apple before a mirror, feeling creepy
as they look over the shoulder in the
glass for the face of the sweetheart to
cbe? Or how many will go down the
cellar stairs with a candle in one hand
and a mirror in .he other, for the same
expected vision? Or how many will
pluck two roses with long stems, and
going to their sleeping rooms without
speaking to anyone, and kneeling be
side their beds, will twine together
the stems of the two icases, gazing
meanwhile intently upon the lover's
rose ,while they chant:
"Twine, twine and intertwine,
Let my love be wholly thine,
If his heart be kind and true,
Deeper grows his rose's hue."
Surely -there will be some, for of
all the nights in the year, it is the one
upon which supernatural influences
-most prevail* and it cannot be possible
that the materialism of a material age
has destroyed all the pretty supersti
tions that h'ave come down through
six hundred years.
From a festival of belief it has now
come to be a festival of Jest and mer
ry making, but superstition still lin
gers yet awhile in human nature.
-In Newberry tonight Hallowe'en
will be observed, though- not as gen
erally as in the days gone by. At the
Armory the ladies of the Methodist
church 'Thave arranged to give a Hal
lowe'en party, and an unusually inter
esting and attractive program has
been arranged. IThe ghosts and 'the
elves will 'be there, 'and there may be
some witc'hes, but if there are any of
the evil spirits, it is guaranteed that
the charms 'which they weave will be
of short duration. Refreshments will
charged at the door.

A Man Who Has Experienced Many
It has fallen to the lot of not many
men to have as many bones broken
as Mr. Hamm Buzhardt has. .He once
had a leg broken in several places by
the falling of a tree. Twice he has
had a collar-bone broken,,at another
time his skull was cracked; and right
recently 'he had the misfortune to have
two of his ribs broken. Strange to
say all these mishaps occurred while
he was a private citizen. He fought
through the entire war, and in that
arm of the service in which most of
the casualties occurred, without hav
ing a bone or even the skin broken.
All honor to the men who stood so
long !between us and 'the bullets of the
enemy; and then came home to re
build their fortunes under adverse cir
cumstances. We will honor them
while they live and cherish their mem

The jury of inques't over the body
of Wm. Turner who was killed at a
hot supper near Jalapa a couple weeks
ago met again on Saturday and after
taking some additional testimony
brought in a verdict that
W.m. Turner came 'to his death by a
gunshot wound at the hands of par
ties unknown to the jury.
They found, however, that certain
parties had pistols and found as ac
cessories to the killing Wm. Jackson,
Jesse Jackson, Jim Davis and Gilbert
Clark. . The three first named were
arrested and brought to the city and
were taken before Chief Justice Pope
and released on $750 bond each, for
their appearance at court. Clark is
