We do not agree with our cotem
porary the Observer in the matter of
the ringing of church bells. We do
not see that it is a riotous proceeding
for the Holy Sabbath, and in fact,
when some of the churches are clos
ed and the bells do not ring, we feel
that something is wrong and it does
not seem like the Sabbath. It is true
that everybody has a clock or a watch
and could attend church without be
ing summoned by the ringing of a
bell, but we like to hear the ringing
of bells and the blowing of whistles
in the day time during the week days
and we see no desecration of the Sab
bath to have the church bells ring
ealling the members to the house of
It does not pay to put in no higher
ground to abuse and vilify your op
ponents in an election not to permit
your friends to do so. As an illus
tration attention is directed to the
overwhelming victory won by May
or Mahon, of Greenville, on last Tues
We give a great deal of space in
this issue to the ceremonies incident
to the laying of the corner stone of
the Baptist church of Newberry, and
in the same connection to the histori
cal sketches of the congregation,
which were written by two of its most
- beloved 'pastors.
The county of Meeklenberg in
North Carolina will vote on Septem
ber 19 on the question of issuing
"$300,000 in 5 per cent bonds pro
ceeds to the amount of $50,000 to be
applied to the floating debt and the
residue to be divided between the city
and county, two-fifths to the former
and three-fifths to the latter, the city
to use its share in street improve
ments, and the county its share in
- building and repairing macadam
There seems to be little doubt that
the people of theis county will vote
this issue of bonds. We suppose
there is scarcely a county anywhere
in the country, which has roads that
are superior to those of Meeklenberg
*county. They lead out from Char
lotte in all directions, and it is a
pleasure to drive on them and a com
fort to the farmers in hauling their
produce to market and in going to
Charlotte to do their trading. We
mention this simply to emphasize the
point which we have been endeavor
ing to make in this county as to street
improvements and road building for
-many years, viz., that if wve could
make a beginning anywhere in the
* county or in the city so that the peo
ple could see and use these good roads
and streets and know by this practi
cal demonstration what is meant by
permanent street paving and road
building, there would be no difficulty
in having the work extended until
every section of the county and city
had secured these modern improve
There is noting, in which the Inost

better advantage and which would
bring greater returns than money. in-*
vested in good roads and good streets.
We hope that we -may live to see the
day when there will be some work of
this kind commenced in Newberry,
both upon ou'r streets and upon our
public highways. _.
The county of Anderson, as we
stated some while ago, has refused by
a very decided vote to authoriZe the
issuing of bonds or the levying of a
special tav for permanant road build
ing. The county of Spartanburg vot
ed on Tuesday on the same question
and decided to issue $20,000 in bonds
for the purpose of building some per
manent roads in this county. This is
a long step forward for Spartanburg
and a failure for Anderson, which
- means really a step backward.
If Spartanburg spends this monev
judiciously, as we have no doubt it
will, it will means more for Spartan
burg than anything she has done in
many many years.
We would -like to call the attention
of Alderman Green who has the num
bering of the houses and the posting
of the names of the streets in charge
that it is 'Boundarv street and not

Greenville, August 20.-In the see
ond primary today G. Heyward Ma
bon received the nomination for may

feating Avery Patton nearly two to
one. The campaign has beea one of
the hottest Greenville has ever
known, and tonight the victoriou4
cohorts of the mayor, who is soon to
take his seat for a third term, are %
celebrating with fireworks, a torch
light procession, and much speech
A large number of voters were
challenged during the day on both
sides, but even striking out these vot
es from the count Mahon has won by
a majority of about 300 votes. The
vote was as follows: Mah. n 792, Pat
ton 453, majority for Mahon 339. For
a second primary the vote is consider
ed heavy for such a hotly contested
election. Order during the day was
remarkably gooa, and can be attrib
uted, no doubt, to the fact that
Greenville is a prohibition county
and also because the mayor ordered
the express company to hold up any
liquor shipments on hand during the

Frances Horner, aged 67 years, wife
of Edward Horner, a farmer on the
Browning road near Merchantsville,

The assassin first set fire to the
Horner barn. While Horner and
Mrs. Napolie 's husband were trying
to rescue some of the horses from the
barn Mrs. Horner and her servant
came upon the negro in the act of
robbing the house. The robber at
tacked the women with an axe and
hopped them to pieces. Mrs. Horn

polie 's head chopped in and her body
covered with gashes. Horner and Na
polie returned to the house to find
Mrs. Horner lying in a pool of blood
and Mrs. Napolie, who was nearby, t
died soon afterwards.
