Dr. Hermon Holleyman Huggins.
Dr. Hermon Holleyman Huggins
died at his residence in this place,
Saturday morning, Feb.1Tth, of rheu
matism of the heart, aged fifty-nine
The public was not altogether un
prepared for the sad news; for a slight
attack of the same disease the Tues
day before, and another attack the day
before his death, warned his friends
that his life was in great danger. Yet
even his family would not yield to the
probability. Death came sudden. Up
to a few minutes before his demise no
special apprehensions were felt. But
the third attack was too much for him,
and before the family could all be
gathered around his bedside, his noble
spirit had gone to meet its Maker.
Dr. Huggins was born and raised
in Darlington county. He was grad
uated in medicine in Philadelphia, at
the Jefferson Medical College, in 1852,
and shortly after this he moved to
He was one of the earliest settlers
of Manning, coming to this place
about thirty years ago, where he has
since been engaged in the practice of
his profession or in the drug business.
About six years ago be was appoint
ed to the position of Treasurer of
Clarendon county, which position he
held to a few weeks ago. He did not
solicit this motion, and his recom
mendation Bad been sent on to the
Governor, before he knew anything
about it. He was also one of the
wardens of this town for several years.
Dr. Huggins was a member of the
Methodist church, of which he was a
steward and a trustee.
Dr. Huggins was the last of three
noble brothers, all of whom in less
than two years have died. A sister,
Mrs. W. J. T. Harvin, died a little more
than two years ago, four of the family
thus dying in about two years.
Dr. Huggins was a man loved by
all who knew him,-a man pure in
purpose, noble in character, honest
and charitable in all his dealings. He
was a man of whom his enemies, if
he had any, could not say that he was
ever guilty of a wilful wrong.

Death of Bishop McTyeire.
NAsavILFF, February 15.-Holland
N. McTveire, senior Bishop of the
Methodist Episcopal Church, South,
died this morning at 9 o'clock, at his
residence on Vanderbilt University
Campus. He was born in Barnwell
County, S. C., July 18, 1828. He
joined the church in 1837, at Cokes
bury School, S. C. He began to
preach in 1845, when he joined the
Virginia Conference. In May, 1846,
the first General Conference of the
Church South was held at Petersburg
and Mr. McTyeire was sent to Mo
In Mobile he met the lady who be
came his wife, a cousin of the lady
whom Commodore Vanderbilt after
ward married. This was the first link
in the chain of causes that gave origin
to the great Vanderbilt University.
He was stationed at Demopolis, Ala.,
Columbia, Miss., and then at New
Orleans, where he built Felicity
Church, and founded the New Orleans
Christian Advocate in 1851. In 1858
he became editor of the Nashville
Christian Advocate and remained in
that capacity till February 19, 1865,
when he left the city and did not re
turn until 1867. He was elected
Bishop in 1866.
It was owing to Bishop McTyeire
that Commodore Vanderbilt made
the princely gift of $1,000,000 and
William H. Vanderbilt $500,000 and
Cornelius Vanderbilt $30,000 to Van
derbilt University, of which Bishop
McTyeire was made president for life.
The funerel will probably be from
the Vanderbilt University chapel on
Sunday, and the body will be interred
in the University campus.

Abbeville, S. C., Oct. 25, 1888.
I was the victim of the worst ca
tarrh that I ever heard of. I was en
tirely deaf in one ear, and all the in
side of my nose, including part of the
bone, sloughed off. No treatment
benefitted me, and physicians said I
would never bi any better. I took S.
S. S. as a last resort, and it has en
tirely cured me. I have been well
four years, and no sign of return of
the dreadfuul disease.

Death of Jas. M. Staggers.
Mr. James M. Staggers died at hii
residence in this town on the 9th in
stant. He was the oldest citizen of
the place, and so far as we know, the
oldest man in the county. Had hE
lived five days more he would have
reached the age of eighty-six years
The disease of which he died was
cancer, the location of which was or
the lower part of his face, which made
its appearance several years ago or
the under lip. It was of slow devel
opment for a long time after its firsi
appearance, and did not cause muc
pain, but for the past year or two the
diseased parts became enlarged and
the pain increased in severity unti)
its victim suffered day and night the
most torturing agony. But during
all the time he was thus so sorely af.
flicted he did not cease to move about
and superintend 'his business, until
a short time before his death, wher
he was compelled to take his bed
from exhaustion.-Kingstree Record
