FATHER SHOOTS SON.
Unfortunate Affair In Saluda County
Yesterday-Wounds Not Fatal.
.Juilia IIendrlix, a younAI.; mant aboutl
e1ihteenl vears of awe. was shot three
times by his fathei. Quincev Heii(lrix,
in Saluda couity ye!sterday morning.
It is not thouglht that the wounds are
of a very serious nature.
The shooting occurred about one
fourth of a mile from the lower steel
bridge over Saluda river. It was diffi
cult to obtain the details of the un
fortunate affair or its cause. It was
stated by some Saluda people who
were in Prosperity yesterday that
they had heard that Julian had drawn
a shot gun on Quincey Hendrix, the
father, whei Quincey Hendrix fired
upon his son with a pistol. One bul
let pentrated the fleshy portion of the
arm above the elbow, another struck
the wrist and a third passed through
the clothing and struck the skin but
did. not penetrate the body.
It was also stated by people from
Saluda county, that- there was pres
ent at the time another son of Quin
cey Hendrix, aged about sixteen years
who shot at his father, as the father
was leaving after having shot his son.
What brought about the difficulty in
the first instance' could not be learn

It,-v. E. P. McC,lint,4Oek. I. D).. has
Ieidiered his resig-natioll as pastor of
the Thompson Street A. It. P. church.
Dr. McClintock has iiot been actively
in pastoral work for several months
owir to failing health. He and Mrs.
McClintock have been in Columbia so
as to be near their daughter, Miss
Euphemia McClintock, who is presi
(dent of the College for women in that
city. It is a source of sincere reg-ret.
not only to the congregation, but to
1Dr. McClintock's many friends in
Newberry that his health has not im
proved and that in consequence. he
ias had to give up the active work
of the ministry in .which lie has been
engaged for about forty years. He
first began to preach regularly at
Thompson Street church and King's
Creek church in May, 1870, and was
installed pastor in May, 1871. This
relation continued regularly until
1883. and Dr. McClintock served both i
congregations. At that time he moved
to the town of Newberry and took
charge of the Thompsoif Street church
exclusively, which congregation he
has served continuously ul) to this
Dr. McClintock took an active..in
terest in everything that pertained
to the welfare and advancement of
the community and to the betterment
of the citizens. and he numbered. his
friends amongst all who knew him.
He was also an actice and enthsiastic
member of the James D. Nance Camp.
Confederate Veterans. being himself
a veteran of the confederate war. and
was its chaplain from the organiza
tion of the camp. As long as his
health permitted, he never failed to
attend the meetings of the camp and
to take active interest in the exer
eises incident to memorial day.
A session of the clhirch will be
held on Sabbath morning- immediate
ly after the service to consider the
resignation of Dr. McCintock. Of
course, under the circumstances, there
will be nothing left for the congerga-I
tion to do but to accept it. and it is
presumed immediate steps ivill be ta
ken to secure another pastor who vill
be able to engage actively upon the
wvork of the pastorate.

anspices of tlie hlielor _Nhaids. It
will be in no sense a lecture, but an
evening if story and song picturing
"Old Tirnes Down South.'' It is said
that Polk Miller is the best delineator
of negro chara.eter that has ever ap
peared upon the platform.
Knowing Mr. Miller personally,
Mr. A. C. Jones has been in corres
pondence with him for the Bacheloi
Maid5. Following is a characteristic
letter from Mr. Miller to Mr Jones:
Richmond. Virginia,. March 19, 1906.
MIr. A. C. Jones.
Mv Dear Sir:-Last year. we had
sone talk about my coming to New
berry for some ladies who styled
themselves the "Bachelor" Old
Maids. Now I am of the opinion that
all the ginrls I saw whin I was in New
berry last were so sweet that such an
organization was bad for the boys.
Anyhow, I have about 25 dates on the
S. A. Line of railway for the month
of April, and I can give you one or
the other of the following dates for
those dear old maids. Clinton wants
me. and I can give them Monday or
Tuesday the 16th or 17th of April. I
had a kind of sneaking notion that
your young ladies belonged to the
Episcopal church. and I fought shy
of coming there until after Lent. An
Episcopal- Bishop* was among the lot
of held up passeugers in the west a
short time ago, and as the fellow was
going through him, the Bishop said
"this is hard on a poor preacher, go
in' around in the discharge of his sa
cred duties.'" The robber turned and
said "are you a preacher sho' nuff!"
" Yes, I 'm a Bishop of the Episcopal
church.' 'The hell you are,'' said
the robber, " why that's my church.
!ive him his nioney back.'' And they
did. righl there ......I didn't want
to comne to Newberry in Lent,. and the
16th is just. after it, and a good time
as I .thought. I've got a mighty good
entertainment. and four mighty good
sni'-niggers. And they don't for
get either that they are employed by
re 'to play the part of negroes, and
not gentlemen with black skins. I
mention this merely to give you to
nderstand that I use 'em for a pui
pose. andl they fill the bill. These ne
'res know the better class of white
people as soon as they see 'em, and
they prefer to sing for that class~ who
an be kind, and just to a nigger, and
yet give him to understand .that. they
are his superiors all the time. I man
ae these men, just as any other sou
thern gentleman who owned negroes
would. and I have no trouble with
them. I see that they are well taken
care of, and they pay me back by
giving me the best singing that any
guartett.e ever did before the publ.ic.
They are .wonders. Write me at once
and tell me if those ladies can use me.
With best wishes for yourself, and
hoping~ to hea: from you at once, I am
ycrs very truly,

OLD TESTAMENT LITERATURE.
Last Lecture in Course of Lyceum by
Dr. J. H. Penniman of Pennsyl
I int rdn1 in3 I)r. . 1. PI . 111n1ma1.
)ean of tle University Aof Pennsyl
vania. who delivered his lecture "The
Old Testament as Literature," in
Holland Hall, on Wednesday night,
)I*. 'Seherer well said that his address
wxould be a fitting climax to the Ly
eeum course, which it completed. Dr.
Peunmniman employed none of the arts
of the orator to arouse or hold the
interest of his hearers. but during an
hour- that passed all toi, tjuicklv held
from bei11nning to end the closest at
tentimi of his aulieice. He spoke of
the Bible as the only book with which
all ;ire familiar. a book to be regarded
not)t Ierelv as a book. or a collection
t boks, but as all that is left of a
"reit literature, a book to be read and
stldied not alone as the source of re
li-ious ideas and ideals. The speaker
alirmed his belief in the inspiration
of? the Bible. but emphasized the fact
that read solely. as a human docu
inent. leaving out of account its in
spiration. it. will be found a most won
derfully interesting book. Reading
for example the book of Chronicles,
late compiled. it is found that men
made use ot other books as sources of
information., giving evidence of the
use of the scientific method, frequent
ly referring to original sources of
knowledge, quoting from valuable
books, now lost. preserving passages
of sublimity and beauty. as for ex
ample the lamentation of David over
Jonnathan, found in the book of
Tie truth of the Bible is demon
strated in the history of the Jewish
people. The preservation of the
books that remain. while so much of
a great literature has been lost, ac
counted for by the fact that it is such
a history. The genealogy of Jesus
accounts for the preservation of the
beautiful Idyll, the book of Ruth. In
reading the Old Testament as litera
ture, its three great divisions to be
kept in mind, The Law, The Prophets
and the Holy Writings, covering a
period of one thousand years of' Jew
ish history..Old Testament is no his
tory of the world, but of the Jews. In
it there is little mention of other na
tions except in connection with the
chosen nation. In tihe literature of
other nations, there is little mention
of the Jews. its literature was not
produced by weaklings. Moses and
Paul were cited as examples. The
speaker read a portion of Moses fare
well address, and characterized the
last chapter of Deuteronomy as one
of the finest passages in all literature.
The Bible should not be thought of in
a narrow way. Studying it, 'one
should divest himself of preconceived
opinions and prejudices, and let it
speak for itself. "Do not read things
into) the Bible, read things out of it.''
Speaking of the oratory of the Bible,
the lecturer empl'oyed the illustrative
thlod. au. l descrihed the crime of
David and the rebuke of Nathan.
stro:ngly showing the dramatic elimal
asteaged prophet declared "Thou
art tile man.'' as forceful as any
thing in all literature, not excepting
tile strongest passages from Shakes
peare. He then called attention to
the use of parables, describing the
difference between a fable and a para
ble. A parable and a fable similar
in many ways, there is something in
each to teach a moral lesson. A fa
ble always transcends the course of
nature, a parable never. There are
only two fables in the Bible, Judges
9 :8: 2 Kings 14:9. The Bible is full
of parables and each is a literary
gem. In fables only maxims of world
ly wisdom are to 'be found, in para
bles, divine truth, always marked by
simplicity, directness, and though
teaching the profoundest philosophy,
always with wond rouis clearness. the
simplest parable marked by skillI,
care and tremendous literary power.
Bush River Cemetery.
The committee appointed to fence
and make needed improvements in
the Bush River cemetery, wish to say
to friends having loved ones buried
there, that many graves are unmark
ed. some stones are inclined or have
fallen. It will greatly aid as in our
work if the friends of such will have
the graves put in order. It is the
purpose of the committee to locate all
the graves possible and to keep the
cemetery in order.
