OFFERS TO FIGlT T.I B. FELDER.

Abbeville. June 9.-It has remained
for old Abbeville to put forth a man
as a target for the bullet of Col. T. B.
Felder. of Atlanta, who recently chal
Ienged Governor Blease. Mr. W. P.
Beard has written a letter, which will
appear in the next issue of the Press
and Banner. in which he accepts for
Governor Blease the challenge to per
son il combat. In part the communi
et-i is as follows:
--To the Hon. Fighting To Bom
baster Felder, Esquire. otherwise
known as the Atlanta Lawyer:
"Dear Sir: Disclaiming for myself
any personal feeling whatever toward
your honorable self, yet, in considera-:
tion of peculiar conditions at present
surrouading the quarrel betweti jou
and Governor Blease, it seems to me
that the obligation to maintain the
honor of this State rests as much up
on the citizens as the executive, and'
as the hands of the executive are tied
by his oath of office, imposed by act
of law at the demand of the citizens!
thereof, by the same token the duty
of placing himself between the honor
of his State and the assaiant reverts
to the citizens generally, collectively
and individually, and as I have, after
diligent search, failed to find a suf
ficient number to meet the assault in
force, have decided to otrer my own
individual anatomy as the ca.E bt Lor
your unerring bullet, thereby appeas
ing your righteous wrath and saving,
the honor of my native bate.
"Therefore, honorable sir, you will
please consider ycur challenge to
Governor Blease accepted and the in
cident closed, unless you wish to fur
ther advertise your firm, and that your
humble servant will hold himself in
readiness for a meeting on the field of i
honor, at such time and place and
with such weapons as our respective
seconds can agree upon."
The communication is a lengthy one,
the above being only the introduction.

Mrs. Carrie Nation was born in
Kentucky in 1S46. Her maiden name
was Carrie Moore, and as a girl she
was absolutely fearless. In her early.
life she married a man addicted to the
use of intoxicants, which created in
her an intese aversion to the salooi.
When he died she determined to de
