AN INSANE NEGRO CAME

Told Richard Carroll he Had "a
Message From God."
Saying that' he bore "a message
from God," William Denny, a negro

known negro 'minister, near midnight
Thursday night. Finding the negro
insane, Carroll called on Magistrate

mind was a blank yesterday when he
was taken from the jail. The negrc
is 33 years old and was well dressed.
Carroll met him in Newberry a short
while ago when he says the negrc
was very intelligent.
Carroll's statement that this is the
third insane negro to visit him witb3

the hope that she might reconsider,
the chapter carried this matter over
until the first fall meeting.
Several important business items,
relative to closing up the year's
work, were disposed of.
During the social half hour which
followed, delicious refreshments
were served by Mrs. West. Owing to!

session of the chapter.

WANTS TO COME TO NEWBERY.
If You Want Partner in Mercantile
Business See President Hunt.
He Has an Inquiry.
The chamber of commerce at N-sw
berry has been very active in looking
ifter the interests of the city and in
bringing people who make inquiries
about the town in contact with oth
er people who could probably answer
their inquiries, but a communication
was received a few days ago which
can be placed before the proper per
3on only by giving out in this way
what is desired. Of course the cham
ber of commerce does not know
whether any merchant in Newberry
lesires. . a partner or not.
The president of the chamber of
comemrce is now in possession of a
letter from a business man in anoth'
er State who wishes to secure a part
ner and to enter the mercantile
business in Newberry.
The following extract is given from
the letter without giving the town or
the name of the party:
"If there is a firm in your town do
ng a dry goods or general mercan
tile business who wishes to secure a
partner, I would be glad if you would
refer my letter to them. I am 24
years old, and want to engage in the
mercantile business. I hope that I
may settle in your town."
If there is any business man in
ewberry interested in this matter if
he will call on President I. H.- Hunt,
Nir. Hunt will be glad to put him In

Will be Open Every Day for One
Hour-Should be Sustained
The officers of the Library associa
tion have been making an effort to
raise a sufficient amount of money
From the business men of Newberry
to make up the $100 which had here
tofore been appropriated ' by city
,ouncil for the maintenance of the
Library, but which tne present city
ouncil refused to give this year. The
adies have not been successful in
their. efforts and they have decided
to open, the library every day for one
tiour, 10 o'clock, to 11 o'clock, in the
orenoon so that the people might go
ip and see what the library has,
whether they are members or not
and in this way have a better appre
ciation of the good that this library
is doing and the ggeater good it
might do if properly sustained.
A number of new books have been
added to the library and so far as
possible the association Is Imdeavor
Ing to keep up with the latest and
best literature. It costs only $1 'par
per year to become a member, or on
y 15 cents a month If any one de
SIres to join for only one month.
Certainly a city the size of New

The Herald and News of last Fii

the serious illness of Mr. Edw. R. a
Hipp in a sanitarium in Charlotte n
and stated that probably- he would
not live through the day. He died. n
Friday morning at 9 o'clock. His tl
family were all present in Charlotte s
and his brother, Mr. Jno. C. Hipp. c
His remains were trought to New- S

Sunday afternoon at 4.30 o'clock, be- a

The honorary pallbearers were: Dr
J. M. Kibler, Geo. W. Summer,
James B. Reagin, C. T. Summer. E
The editor of The Herald d News
frst became acquainted '-th Mr.
Hipp many years ago when they were
both pupils at the country school at
St. Paul's. We should say that the
highest encomium that could be paid
him is that he attended strictly to
his own business, spoke no ,unkind
words of any one, was devoted to his
family and faithful in the service of
his church. These characteristics
necessarily made him a good citizen
and an upright man.
I The following is the sketch read
by his pastor at the funeral:
Edward Reginald Hipp, son of
George and Martha Hipp, was born
near Pomaria, S. C., August 29, 1855
His parents died when he was but a
lad, and with five others, three broth
ers and two sisters, thrown on their
own resourcey, he had to endure the
privations of 1861 to 1865, attending
neighboring country schoils at -ir
regulay' intervals, and working for.
his daily support,
IIn 18'78, in oopartnership with his
uncle, David Hipp, he engaged in the
mercantile business at Pomaria, and
continued in this business till 1890.
On the Airs of March, 1888,.he mar
ried Mary Elvira Holloway, daugh
ter of the late Col, Thomas. W,-Hollo
way, and to this unionsf al hildren i
have been born: Edna G., Loufse A,
M. Rosalyn, Mary H., Thomas Earle
and Edward 4., ,all living.
.He* moved to 'Newberry -in 1893,
and continui.~ 'in the mercantile
business, anrd by.- dint of strict and
diligent attention to his work,. by
fair and square dealings, by un- -
questionable and unwavering hones
ty, his btusiness prospered, and at his
death, he was one of the largest deal
ers in the city ,of Newberry.
He was a liberal and public spirit
ed member of every civic organiza
tion that looked to the betterment of
his community--contributing . cheer
fully and liberally of -his means, to -
the extension of . every cause that
stood for the tipbuilding of the town
in every good way.
But as a member and officer of the
Lutheran Church of the Redeemer,
he will be missed niost sorely. Al
ways punctual and regular in his at
tendance upon divine services, both
in the church and in the Sunday
school and prayer meeting, always
willing and foremost in his generos
ity towards every good cause, con-G
tributing his wise counsel and gra
cious sympathy, in word and dleed,
towards his pastor. His vacant pewi
deeply saddens the hearts of all
those whose blessed privilege.-it was
to be his associates.
As a kind and affectionate hus
band and sfather, a public spirited -
and progressive citizen devoted
to the upbuilding .of his town,
as a loyal and fait'hful member of
his church, and one ever mindful of
its h.0hest and be,st interests, as
friend, as counselo'r, as official-in
whatever side of his amiable nature
one approached, he was always the
same, agreeable, modest, reserved
and courtly Christian gentleman.
Truly do we mourn for one of the .tl
fallen pillars of our social and reli..
gious edifice. J
