Liberty, Dec. 10.-Dr. Roy Z. Thom-. g
as of Newberry college, the lecturer,
orator and educator, delivered a lec
ture recital on the "Life Tragedy of
Edgar Allen Poe' "in the auditorium
of Walker-McElmoyle hig!h school F

treat, a great pleasure, and a high~
honor f.or the people of this commun

Lecturer on this intellectual subject..
His words, so logically, eloquently, A
and aTtfully spoken, thrilled the large
audience and held it spell bound

TWELVE YEARS IN OFFICE.
Sheriff Buford Served Many Jurors
and Handled Thousands of Prison
ers During His Term of Office.
Sheriff M. M. Buford. of this Cou
ty, is now closing his twelfth year in
that office. During that time he has
served 17 grand jurors' venires, in
all 170 men. He has also served 75
1 venires for petty jurors, in all 2364
men, making a total of 2534 citizens
of this county, who have been served
by him as jurors.
During his term of office he has
taken 90 persons to the hospital for
the insane from this county. During
the term of W. W. Hodges as probate
judge 34 of these were sent, durin.
the administration uf J. C. Wilson 39,
and 17 4Liring F. M. Schuiprt
Up to yesterday. December 14th. h
had received in the jail during his
term of office 2386 prisoners.
In January he will enter upon hiz
fourth term as sheriff of this county.
In the old days the sheriff was ineli
gible to succeed himself in office, but
it has been the history of this county
not to change county officials excepi
at very infrequent intervals. Howevei
an examination of the history of thi:
eunty will show that for several
terms before the war Gen. H. H. Kin.
ard was saceeeded by his brothei
Maj. J. P. Kinard, and in turn Maji
Kinard was succeeded by General
Kinard, carrying out. the idea of not
changing county officials even wher
the law required it but keeping the
office in the family.
Young John Harrington was the
clerk of the court in this county foi
43 years from 1807 to 1850.
The first election by the people for
r the clerk of the court was in 1851
when Burr J. Ramage became clerk,
and he held the office until 1863.
Death of Mrs. Frank L. reagle.
On Thursday evening the sad intel
ligence of the dea.th of Mrs. Frank
' L. Feagle, which had occurred at het
home in Greenville that evenin-- alout
- 6:45 o'clock, was 'phoned to her r?la
tives in this e;v.
~Mrs. Feagle had been ill for several
Sweeks, but up until a few hours of her
Sdeath it was hoped that her life would
be spared to her husband, and little
Schildren, and other loved ones.
LMrs. Feagle, before her mariage,
3was Miss Nellie MeFall. She was a
Sdaughter of the late Captain J. Y.
SMcFall, who was a brave Confederate
Ssoldier and at one time was clerk of
Sthe court of Newberry county', and
who was for a long time engaged in
mercantile business in this city. She
was a half sister to Mr. John M. Kin
ard. president of the Commercial bank~
and of Dr. James P. Kinard, of Win
throp college, and a full sister of
SMessrs. W. A. and Jesse Y. McFall.
and Mrs. C. J. Pureell, of this place.
As Miss Nellie McFall she made
Jewberry her home all during her life
Iuntil her marriage, and she was
known and loved by the entire com
munity for her sweet, bright and
cheery disposition, and her many fine
-traits of character. -Some. ten years
ago she graduated at Winthrop col
lege, and after her graduation was a
successful teacher. For three years
prior to her marriage, spe was a teach
er in the graded schools at this place.
Four years ago last October she wa:
married to Mr. Frank L. Feagle, of
this county, and they have since made
their home in Greenville, where Mr.
Feagle is in business.
The remains were brought to New
berry over the C., N. & L. road Fri
day afternoon, and from the station
were carried to the home of her sis
ter, Mrs. Purcell, wmxre the funeral
service was held, being conducted by
the Rev. George A.- Wright. amidst a
large concourse of sorrowing friends.
The floral tributes were numerous
and very beautiful, one being a bean
tifully arranged bouquet of white car
nations whie'h was sent by the senior
class of Winthrop college.
*Besides her husband and other rela
tives Mrs. Feagle's death is peculiar
lv sad in that she leaves three little
children, one being an infant about
three wteeks old. The children have
been brought to New'berry and will
make their home here with her sister
The sympathy of the entire com
munity goes out to the heart broken
husband in this great sorrow that has
come to him, as well as to Mrs. Fea
gle's other relatives. It is indeed sad
that while in the very bloom of her
young womanhood she should have
been called away from those who
needed her so much, but her true and
unselfish love and devotion to thlost
she has left as well as her strong,
sveet personality wiln ever remain as
