request for samples of corn.

PRESBYTERIAN SYNOD CLOSES.
Pleasant and Harmonious Meeting
Some Discussion of Several
The Presbyterian synod of South
Carolina closed last Thursday night.
There were no matters of great in
terest'to the public further than what
were contained in the last issue of
The Herald and News.
Two questions affecting the semi
nary in Columbia caused spirited dis
cussion on Thursday and Thursday
evening. The board of direcors of the
seminary, which is in control of the
synods of Georgia, Florida, Alabama
and South Carolina, recommended to
these synods the adVisability of
amending the constitution of the
seminary so that the terms of profes
sors would expire upon the professor
reaching the age of 70 years and that
provision be made for their support
after their retirement. It also provid
ed that if in the judgment of the board
it was advisable that the professor
might be elected annually after reach
ing the age of 70. This provision
caused considerable discussion but
was finally agreed to by the synod.
It has not yet been acted upon by
the other synods controlling the
The terms of Dr. W. J. McKay, of
Sumter, and Mr. W. A. Clark, -of Co
lumbia, as members of the board of
directors had expired and their suc
cessors were elected. The committee
to name their successors placed in
'nomination the names of Rev. Alexan
der Martin, of RocA Hill, and Mr. W.
H. Townsend, of Columbia. On the
adoption of these recommendations
'there was a spirited debate. It was
I claimed that these two gentlemen had
been for many years members of the
board and were very valuable mem
bers and it would be a' mistake not
to re-elect them. When the vote was
taken, however, Dr. McKay and Mr.
Townsend were elected.
F Dr. T. A. Dwyer, who is conducting
the meeting at the Presbyterian
church this week, delivered a very
eloquent address on Thursday night,
giving some account -of 'his conversion
from the Roman Catholic church.
The sessions of the synod were
pleasant -and harmonious and it seems
that the members came to Newberry
for %he purpose of attending to the
business of synod and when it was
finished of returning to their homes.
The session Thursday night did not
conclude until after 12 o'clock.
THE LYCEUM COURSE.
First Attraction Dr. Byron WV. King,
Holland Hall NoTember 1-Larg
est and Strongest Course.
Dr. Byron W. King, the first attrac
tion of the lyceum course will be with
us on November 1, in Holland Hall.
This year's lyceum course is the
largest and strongest Newberry has
had for a numbar of years. The course
consists of 'seven attractions coming
in the following order: Dr. Byron W.
King, lecturer; The Winifred Town
sand Concert company; The Coxes,
entertaining company; The Eureka
Glee Club, with its novelty, the
chimes; Dr. W. T. S. Culp, called
"The Prince of Orators;" The Lyric
Glee club, returning by request of our
people, and Dr. Henry Clark, "Play
Ball Clark," the great English ora
tor and lecturer.
Ju'st a word about our first number,
Dr. King. Russel Conwell says: "He
is a man of highest rank in his pro
fession, a king of the platform." A
leading paper of Louisville, Ky., says
that Dr. King is by all odds the great
est man in his p-rofession, who ever
appeared before the Louisville audi
ence. John Temple Graves says: "I
do not know that I ever met one who
impressed me more profoundly than
Dr. Byron W. King. He is a scholar,
author, actor, teacher and incompar
able orator combined, a glorious com
bination meeting in an accomplished
and lovable gentleman."
Of a man who is leading in his pro
fession it seems superfluous to men
tion his ability. We only hope that
the people will avail themselves of
the privilege of hearing this man who
as never before been in our midst
and who makes us better as well as
Small Cotton Fire.

Early last Tuesday night the store

lour on the floor near the door, which
indicated robbery. The loss is about
$400, nsurne ount $2.500.
