Rev. J. A. Sligh Has Served One Con
gregation as Pastor for -'orty
On last Saturday at a meeting o
the joint council of St. Paul's an
Colony Lutheran churches in thi
county, a call was extended to thi
Rev. J. A. Sligh to serve the congre
gations as pastor for another yeaz
Mr. Sligh has accepted and wil
preach at St. Paul's on the first ani
third Sundays, and at Colony on th
second and fourth.
This concludes forty-two years o
continuous and active service by Rev
Mr. Sligh as pastor of St. Paul's. L
fact, we believe it was his first pas
torate, and while he has served othe
churches in connection with thi
church, and has built as offspring
of St. Paul's four or five Lutherai
churches in that part of the count3
he has continually served the peopl
at St. Paul's as pastor during a]
these years, and now enters upon hi
forty-third year. This covers mor
than a generation,.and in looking ov
er the congregation on Sunday w
could not recognize one of the mem
bers, who were officers and leader
of the church when Mr. Sligh too]

a long time to serve one congregatior
and practically all of the membei
ship of the church now is compose
of those who were -baptized and con
firmed by Mr. Sligh. There are a fe-m
but a very small few, of those stil
left, who were members when he en
tered upon his pastorate in this eon
gregation. Though nearly seventy
two years of age, he is still a stroni
and vigorous man and preaches wit
that enthusiasm and vigor, whic
marked his discourses in his younge
days. On last Sunday he preached
forcible sermon and then admitted t
the congregation seven young person
by confirmation and administered th
communion to probably two hundre
members of his church.
It was our pleasure to be with thes
people on Sunday morning, and on
thing that iw(pressed us probabl;
more than anything else apart froi
the services was the large proportio

of young men and young women jus

TWO MTTES TO LIGHT PIPE.
As Result Is Severely Cut and Runs 1
Out of His Shoes and
Nathan Suber and his wife had
not lived altogether pleasantly togetsh
er for some while and he had gone t
away and was living with Mr. Jno. C.
Hipp two miles south of Newberry
while the wife remained at Spearman t
row in the suburbs of the city. On s
Friday night, however, Nathan de- E
termined, it seems, to pay a visit 3
to his former home and to see his t
wife once more, whether for the pur- a
pose of wiping out old scores and j
starting life over again or not is not t
known. It seems, however, that he e
had not notifted his wife of the pro
When Nathan arrived at his for
mer home he found the door'closed
and it was not promptly opened in
response to his knocks and he forced
He also found Belton Henderson at
his former home. Belton lives some
two miles away on Mr. Neel's plaee.
Nathan was not pleased evidently at i
the visit of Belton to his wife and he
proceeded without ceremony to make f
his displeasure known by pouncing t
upon Belton with a knife and giving ,
him several very ugly wounds. As
soon as Belton could get away he
made his escape through the cotton
fields and on to the residence of Dr.
Ellisor. He was bleeding profusely
and had literally, according to his
story, run out of his coat and shoes
for he was barefooted and coatless.
He says he wanted some fire to light
his pipe and had come some two miles
to get the fire from Nathan's wife.
Of course he could not smoke with
out fire and where else could he get
fire so conveniently and then he re
mained -to fiave a social talkr of course
neither Belton nor the wife of Nath
an expecting the husband to make a
eall that evening.
Dr. Ellisor took Belton to his office
and sewed up the wounds. He does
not think the wounds serious but Bel
ton was badly cut in several places.
No report has been received of the
interview between Nathan and his
wife after Belton was so unceremon
iously asked to depart.

Throws Away Anually $A0,000OO.
Miami (Fla.) Record.
An offeial in the agricultural de
partment who is wegl versed on the
subject of cotton seed has estimated
that the farmers of the South lose
annually $25,000,000 by not market
ing their cotton seed. His estimate
is gained through the following facts.
An average erop of 12,000,000'
bales will afford a yield of 6,000,000
tons of cotton seed. The cotton seed
mills of the state report annually
that of this amount 3,500,000 tons
are crushed at their refineries.
This will leave a clear 2,000,0003
tons of cotton seed which are either
thrown away, left to lie on the
ground and rot, or as in olden days,
the seed are placed in the ground
It is estimated that out of this
amount of seed wasted there is $2,
000,000 worth of lint, whieh is used
for all sorts of practical purposes,
and $25,000,000 worth of cotton seed
oil which is never extracted and re
fined, which Dr. MeCandless states
is of no earthly use as a fertilizer.
This experiment, with this state
ment of the waste that is going on
around the country, will doubtless
ause more cotton seed to be placed
on the market.
