MAJ. G. L. BUIST DEAD.
Noted South Oarolinian Ends Long
and Honor,able Oareer-Maj.
Buist was Apparently in Good
Health a Few Hours.
Before His Death.
Charlestoll, May 31.-Maj.- George
Lamb Buist died suddenly this morn
ing, sliorlty after 12 o'clock, at his
,residence, Nio . 283 Mceting s'qreet.
The cause of his death was heart
Maj. Buist attended the com
mencement exercises of the Lucas
academy last night and returned
home aind retired, apparently in the
best of health. He did not complain
of any bad feeling upon retirement,
but about a half hour afterwards lie
awoke and spoke of his heavt pain
ing him. Medical -assistance was im
mediately siumimoned and everything
possible was done to give the patient
relief, but the attack was of such a
Iserious nature that its fa-tal effect
could not be stayed and inl about 20
minutes he was dead.
The news of the death of Maj.
Buist came as a groat shock to the
People of Charleston itoday and all
through -the state, where he was also
well known. a
Maj. Buist was large of build and
.always enjoyed good health. His
personal appearance certainly gave
no indication ithat, notwitlhst.anding
he was 69 years of age, he would be
spared for many years to come and
his usefulness to the community
proipted the wish that lie would r-e
main an active figure in the business
social and educational life of Charles
ton for a long time to come. He had
a heart as big as his body, kind in
nature, wi-th a pleasant word for all
and glad of the opportunrty to do a
service .to his fellow man. He loved
his city aiid his people and lie freely
gave his services in their behalf. In
war and in peaee the best that was
in him, and this was a vast deal, was
at the disposal of his people. Inl the
le.-islatire. both in the house of rep
resentatives and in the senate, lie
was an able. hard and faithful work
er in behalf of Charleston, and in
fact for the entire staste, and in the
cause of education especially lie was
an energetic and zealous worker,
serviing for mainy years on the board
of ci-ty school commissioners, - of
which he was chairman at the time
of his.dantJe. -
MNfaj. Buist is survived by Mrs.
Buist, four sons, Dr. George Lamb
Buist, Henry Buist, Thomas J. Buist
and Abbot Buist, and three dau:hi
ters, Mrs. M. Rutledge Rivers, Miss
Louise Buist and Mrs. James L. Ack
ermanl, and two brothers, Dr. J. S.
Buist and Samuel Buist.

An Exhibition of Inventions Not Yet
on the Market, at the James
Norfolk, Vd., June 3.-A most iii
teresthi- featre of the Jamestowii
exposition , oil HamiI-poni lloads, near
Norfolk, Virginia, which opened
April 26th, and will close November
30th, is t'he ''Section for Invention,''
in which inventors are invited to dis
play their inventions and demon
strate tleir value to visitors.
The ivitation is open to all, and
every facility is offered in the way of
floor space, tables, and shelves, ad
vertisiiig cards and labels, electric
current, gas, lights, etc. A modest
fee of from ten to not more th,anl
I-hirty dollars. except inl very special
cases. is charyed for such space and
servive. The service iwludes. as well
as the general care of models, ex
plaiins to visitors, and the return
of the exhixibit at the close of thel
Awards will be made of gold, sil
ver, and bronze medals and, diplomas.
That iintois iAffilive to this un
paralleled opportunity for making
public their creations, is shown by
the fact that within four weeks after
the first notice was sent out by the
Bireau of Inveiitions of the James
town exposition, applications had
been made for more Vln five thous
and square feet, and new applica
tions are now coming at the rate of
a hmndred a day.
The inventors are not the only
ones who will profit by this display
for the exhuibition cannot fail to be
of interest and material benefit to
the public at large. Never becfore
has such an oppJortunity been pre
Sentedl at any ex'posit.ion, and now
t'hat the first step has been made in
this dli'etioni, such exhibitions of in
ventions wijll -no doubt become a part
of all futunrc expositions.
