SHOOTING AT KINARDS.
Kr. W. M. Oxner Shot Twice by Mr.
D. Luther Boozer-Trouble Arose
in Regard to Laborers.
Mr. W. M. Oxner, of Kinards, was
shot twiee on Saturday morning and
seriously, though not fatally injured
bV Mr. D. Luther Boozer. Both these
zentlemen, who are prominent plan
ters, live just beyond the line. in
Laurens county, though Mr. Oxner's
,in house is in Newberry county, and
the shooting occurred in Inis county.
The shooting occurred aL an early
iour on Saturday mortmig, near the
.ethodist church, at 1Gnirds. One

aer's right foot and the 3tn r in his
right hip. He was placed alwost im
nediately under the care 3f Dr. 0. B.

lasting results are feared. '

,nd Mr. Oxner m2t.
It seems that for some years past
Nfr. Boozer and Mr. Oxner have been
.1aving trouble in regard to some neg
ro laborers, and this is believed to
ave been the cause of the difficulty.
One report of the difficulty is to
the effect that Mr. Boozer remarked
to Mr. Oxner that he (Boozer) did not
think Oxner had treated him right
about moving some hands, Boozer
telling Oxner that Oxner knew the
ands were under contract with him
(Boozer). and that he (Boozer) had
written Oxner a note telling him they
were under contract with him; that
)xner replied that it was his (Ox
aer's) business; that Boozer answer
)d, "It is my business, too," whreup
)n, the report states, Oxner. who had
,tarted towards his gin, turned and
idvanced upon Boozer and Boozer
told him to stand back; that Oxner
-ontinued to advance and Boozer
shot him in the foot; that Oxner d.id
2ot stop and Boozer shot him in the
:high, and after that fired one more
~hot, which did not take effect; that
3xner then walked off.
Another report of the difficulty is
o the effect that after words had en
ned Boozer drew his pistol atnd fir
~d upon Oxner, firing fo.ur shots and
~itting him twice, Oxner telling Boo'
~r that he was unarmed..
So far no warrant has been placed

Depicting the pathethiiv eondition lii
of the Chinese nation. which, howev- A

than in the years gone by, Prof. N. ei
Gist Gee, in Central Methodist w
church, on Sunday evening, urged earn- ir
estly and eloquently upon his hear- M
ers the duty of America to heed the re
call which comes to her from across re
the seas-the cry of China, out of hei til
despair, for life, hope and Christ. et
The lecture by Prof. Gee was upon fr

of Central church, and the church ol

feetivelv rendered by Prof. Moran, of (
Newberry college. Prof. Gee was in- ti
troduced, in a few vell chosen words,
by Dr. Wolling. d
Prof. Gee said that at reular in- P1
tervals in the history of the worlab
there had been great movements.
thrilling' and causing sensations. We s
were approaching one of these per
iods, he said. The whole earth was le
beginning to be-moved. He spoke of I
the progress of civilization and Chris- t
tianity in South Africa, -South Amer- a
ica, India, Korea and Japan. Thirty- R
five years ago an imperial edict had a
been posted in Japan, declaring be
lievers in Christ criminals, and many P
suffered death. At the close of the ir
Russo-Japanese war the royal house- N
hold gave 10,000 yens to the Y. M. C. "
A. to be used in dispensing Bibles to
the returning troops. / p
China, with its 400,000,000 of in- e<
hab,itants, he said, was beginning to e(
throb with new life. Railroads. were L
being built which were carrying com.nt
merce and modern civilization B
throughout the length and breadth of n
the land. A postal system had been
inaugurated, and the new post offices ci
were averaging about one daily. The 0:
army and navy had been reorganized, v:
and in the north there were 30,0001 e<
men well-equipped and trained. The a:
day would soon come, when, with hei V
reorganized army and navy, she coula ti
tell the other nations to remove their B
hands and she could take care of her E
own affairs. The laws had- been re- C
vised, and barbarous forms of pun- P
ishment for crime had given way be- C
fore enlightenment. Now China had a E
code of laws resembling somewhat
the code of the modern nations. Foot E
binding had been abolished and the p
position of women had changed. .The S
evil opium was being lessened, and it E
was hoped for China that within ten se
years the use of the drug could be si
well-nigh abolished. There had been ,j
an entire change in the educational p
system of the country.
To meet these changes, said Prof. ci
Gee, a wise Providence had been pre- S
paring the American nation durin; 1r
the years for the work before it. 'j
Wi'th the expansioni of this count'y
so as to include the Philippines and ~
the Hawiian Islands, we stood at the a
very door of China. A wise Provi- a
dence had put us there for a special
purpose. In the words of another,
To live at this time . was glorious,
and to. -be young was -very heaven.
When .the Panama..anal was finished, it
the east coast of America would also 11
be brought to China's door.. ti
Prof. Gee took up and discussed ats
length and in detail 'the educational a
system of China. The Chinese rev- P
erenced learning, and yet they were
the most ignorant people on earth. l
It had been estimated that about one
man in every twenty was able to reaa, 1i
and about one woman in 10,000. He le
would like to be a little more opti- b;
mistic, and to say one man in ten, e
and one woman in 5,000.. He spoke of
some of the causes of this ignorance, 1i
mentioning among others the extreme le
difficulty of the intricate language.
He -took up and traced the history .0
of China, showing the causes whieh a
had brought China from a nation ot lE
culture in the twenty-fourth century g
before Christ down to the time oftl
Confucius, the effect of Confucianism f.
upon the people, the little progress
which had been made since, and the~
pathetic conditon of the nation at
present. He told of the new educa
tional system which was being in- 1
stalled, young men having been sent S
