Bouknight, a young farmer ,who lives
near here, died last night from in

a mule Saturday morning. He was
starting .to sow peas and was riding a

When it is known that Bryan holds
spellJbound audiences numbering
thousand upon' thousand, with the
power of hbis eloquence and 'his mnag
netism, it is laughable to reflect that
it is reserved for a few in way down
here in Newberry to say that he did
not come up to expectation. Shades
of all the departed and of all yet to
depart. What a revelation. After Bry
an left Newberry and got into Geor
gia ge spoke in Atlanta to an audi
ence of four thousand people. The
Journal says that half of that mighty
throng rose to greet him with a great
demonstration. Everyrwhere the great
est living American goes. he is accord
ed the highest tributen. A town is
honored by the presence of such a man
as Bryan. Men like Bryan are few
and far between. The presence of
Bryan is an inspiration and a bene
diction, whose influence will linger in
t-he place. Many in Newberry are bet
ter men since Bryan came and spoke
to them. And yet, this great man, this
good man, whom the crownedI
heads of the whole world have been
delighted to honor, and upon whose
words millions have been eager to
hang in rapt attention, and whose
counsel is *mighty, comes to Newberry
and leaves without being heard or seen
by many who could easily have seen
and heard him. It was an opportunity
f a life time and those who availed
themselves of it are glad of it. There
must, of necessity, be many who re
gret their failure.
