"NEW SPRINGS OF JOY."
Sermon by Rev. T. DeWitt Tal
mage, D. D.
What Caleb's Wedding Gift to His Daugh
ter Achsah Signifies-No Life on
Earth So Happy as a Really
-New Springs of Joy" was the subject of
Rev. T. DeWitt Talmage'- recent sermon,
the text being: 'The hast given me a
south land; give me also springs of water.
And he gave her the upper springs, and the
.nether springs"-Joshua xv. 19. The elo
quent divine spoke as follows:
The city of )ebir was the Boston of an
tiquity-a great place for brain and books.
Caleb wanted it. and he offered his daughter
Achsah as a prize to any one who would cap
ture that city. It was a strange thing for
Caleb to do; and yet the man that could
take the city would have, at any rate, two
elements of manhood-bravery and patriot
ism. With Caleb's daughter as a prize to
fight for, General Othniel rode into the bat
tle. The gates of Debir were thundered
into the dust, and the city of books lay at
the feet of the conquerors. The work done,
Othniel comes back to claim his bride.
Having conquered the city, it is np great
job for him to conquer the girl's heart; for
however a woman faint hearted herself may
be, she always loves courage in a man. I
never saw an exception to that. The wed
ding festivity having gone by, Othniel and
Achsah are about to go to their new home.
However loudly the cymbals may clash, and
the olaughter ring, parents are always
sad when a fondly cherished daughter goes
off to stay; and Achsah, the daughter of
Caleb, knows that now is the-time to ask al
most any thing she wants of her father. It
seems that Caleb, the good old man, had given
asawedding present to his daughter, a piece
of land that was mountainous, and sloping
southward toward the desets of Arabia.
swept with some very hot winis. It was
called a "south land." But Achsah wants
an addition of land: she wants a piece of
land that is well watered and fertile. Now
it is no wonder that Caleb, standing amidst
the bridal party, his eyes so full of tears be
cause she was going away that he could
hardly see her at all: gives her more than
she asks. She said to-him: "Though hast
given me a south land; give me also springs
of water. And he gave her the upper
springs, and the nether springs."
What a suggestive passage! The fact is,
that as Caleb, the father gave Achsah, the
daughter, a south land, so God gives to us
His world. I am very thankful He has given
it to us. But I am like Achsah in tho fact
. that I want a large portion. Trees , and
flowers, and grass, and blue skies are very
well in their places; but he who has noth
ing but this world for a portion has no por
tion at all. It is a mountainous land, sloping
off toward the desert of - sorrow, swept by
fiery siroccos; it is a "south land," a poor
portion for any man that tries to put his
trust in it. What has been yourexperience?
What has been the experience of every
man, of every woman that has tried this
world for a portion? Queen Elizabeth,
namidst the surroundings of pomp, is un

nutely the wrinkles on her face, and she

Brinsley Sheridan thrilled the earth
h his eloquence, but had for his last
words: "I am absolutely undone." ;Walter
Scott, fumbling aroundtheinkstand, trying
to write, says to his daughter: "O, take
me back to my room; there is no rest for
Sir Walter but in the grave." Stephen
- Girard, the wealthiest man in his day, or, at
any rate, only second in wealth, says: "I
live the life of a galley slave; When I arise
in the morning my one effort is -to work so
hard that I can sleep when it ggts to be
night." Charles Lamb, applauded 'of allthe
world, in the very midst of his literary
triumph says: "Do you remember, Bridget,
when we used to laugh from the shilling
gallery at the play? There are now nogood
plays to laugh at from the boxes." But
why go so far as that? I need to go no
further than your street to find an illustra
tion of what I am saying.
Pick me out ten suee'ssful worldlings
without any zeligin, and you know what I
mean by succfsul worldlings-pick Jne out
ten successfulI worldlings, an.d you can not
find more 9gan one that looks happy. Care

-back. MakeO your stand at two o'clock at the
corne' of Nassau and Wall streets, or at the
corne of Canal street and Broadway, and
e , your insurance men, your importers,
/-4our wholesalers, and your retailers, as a
class-as a class, are they happy? No. Care
dogs their steps; and, making no appeal to
~God for help or comfort, they are tossed
everywhither. How has it been with'you,
- my hearer? Are you more contented in the
house of fourteen rooms than you were in
the two rooms you had in a house when you
started? Have you not had more care and
worriment since you won that $50.000 than
you did before? Some of the poorest Jnen I
have ever known have been those -of great
fortune. A man of small means may be put
in great business straits, but the ghastliest
of all embarrassments is that of the man
who has large estates. The men who commit
suicide because of monetary losses are those
who can not bear the burden any more, be
cause they have only $10,000 left.
On 2Sowling Green, New York, there is a
house where Talleyrand used to go. He was
a favorite~man. All the world knew him,
and he had wealth almost unlimited; yet at
the close of his lifehe says :"Behold, eighty
three years have passed without any pr-acti
cal result, savc fatigue of bod'y and fatigue
of mind, great discou.r.gm'ent for the
future and great disgust for the past" 0,
.my friends, this is a "south land," and it
slopes off toward deserts of sorrow: and the
prayer which Achsah made to her father
Caleb, we make this day to our Father God:
"Thou hast given me a south land; give me
also springs of water. And he gave her the
upper springs, andithe nether springs."
Blessed be God!i We have more advan
tages given us than we can really appre
ciate. We have spiritual blessings offered
us in this world which I shall call the nether
springs, and glories in the world to come
which I shall call the upper springs.
Where shall I find words enough threaded
with light to set forth the pleasuresof rolig
ion? David, unable to dcs-cribe it in words,
played it on a harp- Mrs. Hemans, not find.
ing enough power in prose, sings that praise
in a canto. Christopher Wren. unable to de
scribe it inlanguage,sprung it into the arches
of St. Paul's. John Bunyan, unable to pre
. sent it in ordinary phraiseology, takes all the
fascination of allegory. Handel, wit
ordinary music unable to reach the heighi
of the theme, rouses it up in an oratorio.
O, there is no life on earth so happy as
really Christian life. I do not mean a shan
Christian life, but a recal Christian' life.
Where there is a thorn there is a whole
garland or roses'. Where there is one gro'n,
there are three- doxoiogies Where there is
one day of cloud, therec is a whole season o.
sunshine. Take the humblest Christian man
that you know-angels of God canopy hin
with their white wings; th'e lightnings o:
Heaven are his armed allies; the Lord is his
shepherd, picking out for him greer
pastures by still waters; if he wyalk forth
Heaven is his bodyguard; if he lie down to

potentates of Heaven are his cup bearers: if
he sit down to food, his plain table blooms
into the King's banquet Men say: "Look
at that old fellow with the worn out coat;'
the angels of God cry: "Lift up your heads,
ye everlasting gates, and let him come in!'
Fastidious people cry: "Get off my fron
steps;" the doorkeepers of Heaven cry
"Come you blessed of my father, imherit

though he may be carried out in a pine oox
to Ithe potter's field, to the potter's field
the chariots of Christ will come down, and
the calvacade will crowd all the boulevards
I bless Christ for the present satisfaction
of religion. It makes a man all right with
reference to the past; it makes a man all
right with reference to the future. 0, these
nether springs of comfort ! They are peren
nial. The foundation of God standeth sure
having this seal, "The Lord knoweth them
that are His." "The mountains shall depart
and the hills be removed, but my kindness
shall not depart from thee, neither shall the
covenant of my peace be removed, saith the
Lord, who hath mercy upon them." 0,
cluster of diamonds set in burnished gold1
0, nether springs of comfort bursting
through all the valleys of trial and tribula
tion I When you see, you of the world, what
satisfaction there is on earth in religion, do
you not thirst after it as the daughter of
Caleb thirsted after the water springs? It
is no stagnant pond, scummed over with
malaria, but springs of water leaping from
the Rock of Ages ! Take up one cup of that
spring water, and across the top of the
chalice will float the delicate shadows of the
heavenly wall, the yellow of jasper, the
green of emerald, the blue of sardonyx, the
fire of jacinth.
I wish I could make you understand the
joy religion is to some of us. It makes a
man happy while he lives, and glad when he
dies. With two feet upon a chair and burst
ing with dropsies, I heard an old man in the
poor house cry out: "Bless the Lord, oh my
soul!" I looked around and said: "What
has this man got to thank God for?" It
makes the lame man leap like the hart, and
the dumb sing. They say that the old Puri
tan religion is a juiceless and joyless relig
ion; but 1 remember reading of Dr. Goodwin,
the celebrated Puritan, who, in his last mo
ments said: "Is this dying? Why, my bow
abides in strength? I am swallowed up in
God." "Her waysare waysof pleasantness,
and all her. paths are peace." 0, you who
have been trying to satisfy-yourselves with
the "south land" of this world, do you not
feel that you would, this morning, like to
have access to the nether springs of spiritual
comfort? Would you not like to have Jesus
Christ bend over your cradle and bless your
table and heal your wounds, and strew flow
ers of consolation all up and down the
graves of your dead?
"is religion that can give
Sweetest pleasures whi:e we livr:
'Tis religion can supply
Sweetest comfort when we die.
But I have something better to tell you,
suggested by this text. It seems, that old
father Caleb on the wedding day of his
daughter wanted to make her just as happy
as possible. Though Othniel was taking
her away, and his heart was almost broken
because she was going, yet he gives her a
"south land;" not only that, but the nether
springs; not only that, but the upper
springs. 0, God, my Father, I thank Thee
that Thou hast.given me a "south laud" in
this world, and the nether springs of spirit
ual comfort in this world; but, more than
all, I thank Thee for the upper springs in
It is very fortuate we can not see Heaven
until we get into it. 0, Christian man, if
you could see what a place it is, we would
never get you back again to the office, or
store, or shop, and the dutiet you ought to
perform would go neglected. I am glad I
shall not see that world until I enter it. Sup
pose we were allowed to go on an excursion
into that good land with the idea of return
ing. When we got there, and heard the
song, and looked at their raptured faces,
and mingled in the supernal society, we
would cry out: "Let us stay ! We are com
here~ang . W.bvtake tle tmae.of
going back again to that ofd world. We are
here now, let us stay." And it>Would take
angelic violence to put us out of that world
if once we got there. But as people who can
not afford to pay for an entertainment
sometimes come around it and look through
the door ajar, or through the openings in
the fence, so we come and look through
the crevices in that good land which
God has provided for us. We can just cach
a glimpse of it. We come near enough to
hear the rumbling of the eternal orchestra,
though not near enough to know who blows
the cornet or whofingers the harp. My soul
spreads out both wings and claps them in
triumph at the thought of those upper
springs. One of them breaks from beneath
the throne; another breaks forth from be
neath the altar of the temple; another at
the door of the "house of many mansions."
Upper springs of gladness: Upper springs
of light! Upper springs of love !*Itis nofancy
of mine. "The Lamb which is in the midst of
the throne shall lead them to llving foun
tains of water." 0, Saviour divine, roll in
upon our souls one of those anticipated rap
tures!i Pour around the roots of the parched
tongue one drop of that liquid life! Toss be
fore our vision those fountains of God, rain
bowed with eternal victory. Hear it. They
are never sick there; not so much as a head
achg, or twinge rheumatic, or thrust nen
ralgic. The inhabitant never says: "I am
sick." They are never tired there.
Flight to farthest world is only
the play of a holiday. They never
si these. it is as easy for them to be holy
as it is for us to sin. They never die there.
You might go through all the outskirts of
the great city and find not one place where
the ground was broken for, a grave. . The
eyesight of the redeemed is never blurred
with tears. There is health in every cheek.
There is spring in every foot. There is maj
esty in every brow. There is joy in every
heart. There is hosanna on every lip. How
they must pity us as they look over and
down and see us, and say: "Poor things
away down in that world." And when
some Christian is hurled into a fatal acci
dent, they cry: "Good! he is coming!" And
when we stand around the couch of some
loved one (whose strength is going away)
and we shake our heads forbodingly, they
cry: "I am glad he is worse; he has been
down there long enough. There, he is
dead! Come home! Come home!" 0, if
we could only get our ideas about that
future world untwisted our thought of
transfer from here to there would be as
pleasant to us as it was to a little child
that was dying. She said: "Papa, when
will I go homes" And he said:' "To-day,
Florence." "To-day So soon? Iam so gladi"
I wish I could stimulate you with these
thoughts~, oh Christian man, to the highest
possible oxhilaration. The day of your de
liverance is co.ming, is coming. It is roll
ing on with the shining wheels of the day
and the jet wheels of the night. Every
thump of the heart is only a hammer stroke
striking off another chain of clay. Better

is your salvation nearer than when you
Unforgiven man, unpardoned man, will
you not to -day make a choice between these
two portions, bet ween the "south land" of
this world which slopes to -the desert, and
this glorious land which thy Father offers
thee, running with eternal water courses?
Why let your tongue be consumed with
thirst when there are the nether springs
and the upper springs, comfort here and
Let me tell you, my dear brother, that the
silliest and wickedest thing a man ever does
is to r'eject Jesus Christ. The loss of the
soul is a mistake that can not be corrected.
It is a downfall that knows no alleviation;
it is a ruin that is remediless; it is a sick
ness that has no medicaflnent; it is a grave
into which a man goes but never comes out.
Therefore, putting my hand on your shoulder
as one brother put his hand on the shoulder
of a brother, I say this day, be manly and
surrender your heart to Christ. You have
been long enough serving the world; now
begin to serve the Lord who bought you.
You have tried long enough to carry these
burdens; let Jesus Christ put his shoulder
under your burden. Do I hear anyone in the
audience say: "I mean to attend to that
after awhilo; it is not just the time?"
It is the time, for the simple rea
son that you are sure of no other;
and God sends you here this morn
ig, and he sent me here to confront you
w.aith ti meae; and von maust hear now
that Christ died to save your soul, and that
if you want to be saved you may be saved.
"Whosoever will let him come." You
will never find any more convenient season
than this. Some of you have been waiting
ten, twenty, thirty, forty, fifty and sixty
years. Onsome of you the snow has fallen
I see it on your brow, and yet you have
not attended to those duties which belong
to the very springtime of life. It is Septem
ber with you now, it is October with you, it
is December -with you. I am no alarm
ist. I simply know this: if a man
does not repent in this world he never re
pents at all, and that now is the accepted
time, and now is the day of salvation. 0,
put off this matter no longer. Do not turn
your back on Jesus Christ, who comes to
save you, lest you should lose your soul.

A TRAVELING MOUNTAIN.
One that Might Have Saved Mohammed
the Trouble of a Journe-y.
Such a mountain is found at the Cascades
of the Columbia. Ore. It is a huge triple
peaked mass of dark brown -basalt, six or
eight miles in length. where it fronts the
river and rises to a height of almost 2,000
feet above the water.
That it is in motion is the last thought
which would be likely to suggest it
self to the mind of any one pass
ing it; yet it is a well established
act that this entire mountain is moving
slowly but steadily toward the river, as if
it had a deliberate purpose some time in the
future to dam the Columbia and form a
ereat lake from the Cascades to the Dulles.
The Indian traditions indicate immense
movements of the mountains hereabouts,
long before white men came to Oregon; and
the early settlers, immigrants, many of them
from New England, gave the above de
scribed mountainous ridge the name of
"traveling mountain," or "sliding moun
In its forward and downward movement
the forests along the base of the ridge have
become submerged in the river. Largetree
stubs can be seen standing deep in the water
on this shore. The railway engineers and
the track men find that the line of the rail,
road which skirts the foot of the mountain
is being continually forced out of place. At
certain points the roadbed and rails have
been pushed eight or ten feet out of line in
the course of a few years.
The mountain is manifestly moving upon
the river, and geologists attribute this
strange picn omenon to the fact that the
basalt which constitutes the bulk of the
mountain rests on a substratum of con
glomerate, or the soft sandstone, which the
deep, swift current of the mighty river is
wearing away; or that this softer subrock
is of itself yielding, at great depths, to the
enormous weight of the harder material

ADVICE ABOUT DOGS.
Now Young Lovers Can Make Friends
- With the Dreaded BullDog.
A good many people are bitten by dogs,
when very few needbe. Inthefirstplace peo
ple should not meddle with dogs who do not
know them. Every now and then somebody
startles a dog by laying astrange hand upon
im, pokes him with a stick or pushes him
.ith the foot and "Is bitten by a vicious

There are people .with the bad habit of
eddling with what does not concern them,
ad there are childrenwhohave been taught
no better than to touch, if they can, what
ver takes their fancy. These are the peo
ple bitten by dogs. Not one in ten thousand
imes does a dogmolest a person who minds
his own business, no matter how crabbed
he dog may be.
If, however, you are bound to approach
ad touch a dog. do it properly. There is
nly one way. It is this: Put out your
and easily and confidently to the dog, so
hat he may smell it. Put it to his nose. If
e sniffs at it and wags his tail or otherwise
shows friendliness then you may speak to
im and pat him on the head if you like,
ad perhaps use other familiarities; but if,
when you offer your hand, the dog remains
sullen and passive, the sooner you take your
and away the better. Never approach a
strange dog with either timitidy oc menace;
ut, as we have said, the best way is to let all
strange dogs alone, and get any desired in
ormation about them from those who have
the honor of their personal friendship.

M')OW ON TRIAL.
THE SLAYER OF CAPTAIN DAWSON
BROUGHT BEFORE THE COURT.
A Jury Quickly Empaneled-Strong Coun
sel on Each Side-The Testimony for
the State and for the Defence.
The trial of Dr. Thos. B. McDow for
the killing of Capt. F. W. Dawson be
gan in the Court of General Sessions
for Charleston on Monday, the 24th
uIt., Judge Kershaw presiding. The
State was represented by Solicitor J. St.
Julien Jervey and Mr. H1. A. M. Smith
of the Charleston bar. The attorneys
for the prisoner were ex-Judge A. G.
Magrath and Mr. J. Barrett Cohen.
After several challenges the jury was
organized, with Mfr. Arthur Middleton
as foreman. It was composed of five
white men and seven colored.
The testimony for the State the first
day brought out little but what is
already familiar to the public. Dr. M.
Miehel, who examined the dead body,
expressed the decided opinion that the
shot must have been fired from the rear
-the ball entering behind the middle
line of the body on the left side. The
other testimony covered only the dis
covery.of the body, McDow's surrender
and some parts of the evidence at the
coroner's inquest. The subsequent pro
ceedings are given below.
CHARLnsTON, June 25.-[Special to
The Register. ]-The sensational denoue
ment in the McDow murder to-day was
the appearance of the Swiss maid, the
moving cause of the tragedy. She was
on the stand for two hours and was sub
jected to the most searching cross-ex
amination. and, although forced to tell
of McDow's villainy and her ow'n shame,
convinced many of the spectators of her
innocence. How the colored jarors will
view it is another matter.
It was noon when she took the stand.
Immediately there was a crush forward
of the dense crowd in the court room,
so that the Judge, lawyers, witnesses
and reporters had scarcely room to
move. Several attempts were made to
move the solid wall of humanity back,
but without avail. Her name is Marion
Drbeyon. She is
A PRETTY GIRL,
of exquisite form and strikingly beauti
ful features: dark eyes and hair; an olive
complexion, with the faintest blush of
roses on the cheeks; large, lustrous eyes,
which boldly looked in the face of the
examining counsel. She has a most
captivating manner of making little
moves and of shrugging her plump
shoulders when answering questions.
Attired in a close-fitting, clinging cos
tume of black cloth, with a tight-fitting
black Jersey, which outlined a bust fit
for a Venus, with a black chip bonnet,

THE SWISS MAID'S STORY.
11r story was drawn out by repeated
questions, the answers being always
frank and delivered in the most piquant
and delighful of pigeon English. This l
is her statement, condensed: "I live
n Charleston wiz Dawson family for!
hree years. Born in Geneva and come to
Amerique wiz Mees Dawson. I haf fa
her: ees in Geneva, wiz my two bro
hers: one brother ces in London."
She met McDow on. the first of February
ast, in the street. Knew him -but not
o speak to. He asked her
To RUN AwAY WITH HIM
o France the first time.
"What did you tell him?"
"I say no, I would not lef Mees
Dawson for anyzing in ze world."
It seems that the acquaintance or
irtation continued from February 1st,
189, to the day of the murder. During
this time the girl admitted that she had
frequently met McDow on the street and
at Captain Dawson's house. He gave
her flowers and a gold watch and chain,
WROTE POETRY TO'HER.
'The burden of his talk with her was
to run away with him. She knew he
was married and a father, but he always
said that he would get a divorce from1
is wife; that he had only married her
for her money. His wife was a German1
woman, and he found it impossible to]
ve with her any longer.
She saw him. at Captain Dawson'si
ouse, where the two remained in the
library for two hours, and at another
ime wthen they met in the cook's house
n Captain Dawson's preniises. This
was while Mrs. Dawson was away.
ON THE MORNING OF THE MURDER
sh met McDow in a street car by ap
pointment. They rode up to the out
skirts of the city and walked around for
some time. Finally they got in Nunau
street, where there was a small house
occupied by a colored woman. McDow
led her into the yard and asked the old
woman to let them have the use of a
room, which was refused, whereupon
they wvalked out. When asked on the
ross-examination why she entered the
yard, she tried to explain that McDow
jold her there was a detective after
them, and b~e desired to avoid him.
On returning McDow asked her
to see him that night, but she re
fused. She finally consented to see him
in Captain Dawson's garden. She told
him then that he had ruined her reputa
tion, as her duty was to Captain Daw-~
son's family. and not to be running
around in thie streets with him, a mar
ried man and a father.
M' DOW FOLLOWED HER
almost every day when she was coming
from school with the children. It was
always the same thing-"He wanted me
to leave Charleston with him and go
away." She gave him some good ad

was not happy with his wife.
sENsATIONA L cRoss-EXAMI:NATION.
The w.itness was cross-examined byv
Judge Magrath, one of the oldest law
-e: s in the State, and it was dur-ing this
cro)ss-exainnatio)n that the story became
excitin. She remembered the first day
*of February. wheii she mnt McDow tirst,
because she had written it down in her
"Wha did you write?"
'I wrote, 'I will remember dis day.'"
"What caused you to remember it?"
A MEMORABLE DAY.
" remember it because I think it was
a memorable day when a married man
asked a poor girl to run with him and
lef her home." [Sensation.]
"What did you think of his offer?"
"I think it was v-ery bad. If he get
divorce from lie's wife den dot not so
"If you consideredlhis proposal wrong,
"I don't know. It was wrong; but I
can't tell. Each day I ask him by de
name of God to lef me alone, and he
will not do it."
It was pitiful to see this girl, when
pushed by a question she vaguely under- I
stood, look around for help, and when
asked a question that tended to compro
mise her, answer: "I don't know; I
She said she did not know what love
was, and she did not love McDow. She
believed he thought he loved her.
"'TWIXT LOVE AND LAW."
The lawyer produced a copy of Jesse t
Anness Miller's sensational novel, 1
"'Twixt Love and Law," and she ad- t
mitted that she had lent it to him. She <
said she knew what was in the book, t
but could not be made to admit that the
parties in the novel were in the same t
relation as she and McDow. In the
book she said the single woman is in t
love with a married man; "but it was
not a case for me, because the single
woman there, she loved the married t
THE KISSING ACT.
There was an .explosion in the court
house when - the venerable counsel
elicited from her that McDow had kissed t
her twice during their liason.
"Did he ever kiss you?" asked the t
"Yes," with a move and a shrug.
"How many times?"
"Two times-and two times too
"Yes," very pointedly. "You want
some more, eh'
The counsel declined, but persisted in
making her describe the kissing. It was
on the occasion of the meeting in the
library. She admitted that McDow had
his arms around her, but there was no
intimation of anything further than the 1
The defendant produced a carte de
visite, which she acknowledged giving
him, and on which was written:
"MARIE, THE MOUNTAIN GIRL."
Nothing could be got out of the wit
ness as to McDow's intention in trying t
to take her into the house np town on
the day of the murder. Her answers
were perfectly frank and apparently
equally innocent. She said, in answer 1
to the question, "I don't believe he

missed, it was difficult to say what im
pression she had made. It was alto
gether one of the most remarkable
examinations ever held in a court room.
FACTS ESTABLISHED BY THE STATE.
John H. Devereaux, Henry Oliver and t
Mike Hogan were examined by the State t
to establish McDow's attempt to bury p
Capt. Dawson's body atter the shooting. I
The evidence on this point was over- t
whelming. The State, thus far, has es- y
tablished beyond question the fact of the t
killing, the fact that McDow shot Daw
son in the back, and the fact that he 1
tried to bury tloy. t
~he trial will probably' las two-or- ]
bree days longer. s
CHARLESToN, June 26.-(Special to
he Register.]-The horrible story of the o
illing of Captain Dawson was told on v
he stand to-day by the only living eye- s.
witness of the tragedy, Dr. T. B. McDow, f,
is slayer. s
The court convened at 10 o'clock, the
state having closed its testimony the
lay before. The defense first put up
3. W. Harper, a negro coach driver,
whose testimony was to .the effect that C
i had seen the decased enter McDow's c
>fice and four or five min- tl
es thereafter heard a pistol v
<hot. This was followed tl
by two awful groans and by the voice of si
i man (meaning McDow), "As you said a
you would take my life, now I've taken b
yours." On the cross-examination he
idmitted that he heard no scuffling
before the pistol shot. Three or four
minutes after the shot M(-Dow appeared I
on the piazza of his residence and a
looked over to the outside of his office. h
Re also saw an old ground-nut-cake n
woman peeping into McDow's office. i
he was run off by McDow's cook. A b
moment after McDow's coachman ran I
back in the yard, got his hat and coat b
and went dowvn the street. o
Then Judge Magrath put up McDow d
:n the stand -to testify. After giving
the details of his age, etc., he pro- t<
eeded to relate the horrible details of tl
:he tragedy. His counsel would not n
ermit him to give a connected narra- V
ive, but led him on gently with ques- r
:ions, allowing him to answer only one 1
it a time. The following is
I was sitting in my sit ting room; heard ,~
:he office gong ring; went down
tairs, and opened the office door.
Dawson asked if this was Dr. McDow. -
[ replied yes, and in vited him in, closing
:he door. Dawson said: "Dr. MeDow, r
[have just been mnformed that you have ti
een guilty of ungentlemanly conduct d
: one of my servants." I replied: " It A
is untrue." Dawson said: "I give you a
:o understand that I am responsible for N
:at girl, and you must not speak tl
:o her again." I replied: I ti
~vould speak to her as often as I de- a
sired. until I was convinced that . 3

said Dawson, "if you (10 so, 1 will p)ublish is
your conduct in the papers." "And if ti
you do, you infernal scoundrel," I re- h
plied, "I will hold you personally re- ]e
ponsible. Get out of my office!" At
bat time he struck my hat off with his 1
:ane and hit mec with his hand, knock- jI
ing me down to the louuge. The two tl
blows were almost simultaneous He y

to have heard 125 yards away.

his head to the ground. e

during its recital the slayer sat as cool
nd collected as if he was telling a fairy
ale. He denied the statement made by
rim just after the tragedy that his vie
im had lived for half or three-quarters
>f an hour. He said he did not leave
he room while. his victim was alive;
lidn't remember how long he remained
here after Captain Dawson's death.
He professed to have a most indis
inct recollection of what took place
after the shooting. He remembers
eeing.Foliceman Gordon when he rang
he gong. The body was at that time in
he closet. He had removed it: He had
o difficulty in getting the body into the
loset. He broke the nails off and tore
pen the door. As soon as life had left

'hen he went and fished the cane out of
he vault, washed it off and put it on
he sofa. He hunted for the hat, but
ouldn't find it. When he had arranged
verything, he went out to surrender
imself. He gave as a reason for re
noving the body from its grave that he
ranted the benefit of giving up the
orpse at the same time.
McDow swore that he had the pistol in
is hip pocket; had it there all day; and
lyays carried it there. He was con
rnted with an interview with
im, published in the Charleston
Vorld, in which he told the re
rter, F. W. Miller, that "while try

low at me with his cane, I managed
o get around to my desk and get my
istol and fired." Being asked to ex
lain this, McDow said it was not the
ruth. He had told Miller, the reporter
ho interviewed him, that he had
aken the pistol from his
ocket; but Miller told him that wotildn't
>ok good for iim in print, and he had
etter say that he gL thg isto. from

e admitted that the interview was read
ver to him before it was published.
He was ne:t confronted with an inter
iew with him, published in the
ime paper, thanking the paper
)r its fair and truthful statements. He;
tid that there were some errors.
ALLED TO SEE THE MAID AFTER THE
McDow admitted that he had gone to'
aptain Dawson's house on the evening
f the shooting, but didn't send word to
e family that Captain Dawson's body

e governess, but she was not there;
ue was with Captain Dawson's children
t dancing school, and he went off to
is lawyer, Judge Magrath.
.TO CONTRADIT DR. MICHEL.
The defense next put up
Ir. Forrest, to contradiet Dr. Michel's
utopsy of the body. The testinmony,
owever, was rather unintelligible to
on-professioral ears, the witness form
g his opinion from the position of the
ullet hole in the breeches of deceased.
r. Forrest also testified that McDow
ad a very slight abrasion of his head
n the night of the tragedy, but lie
idn't think it worth attending to.
W. WV. Sale was the next witness. His
stimony was intended to prove that
2e deceased was a bully and a doiii-;
ering sort of man. Major E. Willis
'as called for the same purpose, but
iher disappointed the counsel by deny
ig all that Sale had said.
This ended the testimony for the (Ie
mse. No allusioni was made du'ring

In reply to a question from Hogan as

cild. George Dwver. was drowned in a
