will do the most good to the greatest nunm

W. H. GEIGER DEAD.
The Victim of Manning's Catas
Our readers will remember the sad. sad.
story of the conflagration of recent date in
Manning and its fearful results. William
H. Geiger, aged twenty-six years, and un
married. was the one most seriously hurt.
and after four davs of constant care and at
tention, his soul winged its flight to Hi;..
the giver of souls. About two o'clock last
Friday morning Willie Geiger breathed his
last. He was conscious to the last and hit
passing away was like a sleep. The re
mains were at once prepared to be taken to
the home of his family and on the morn
ing passenger train the body wasataken, ac
companoel by the father and tuo brotheta.
Dr. R. B. Loryea. Capt. D. J. Bradham and
Mr. Louis Appelt. On reaching Columbia
the trip to the church was made by private
conveyance, a distance of about sixteen
miles across Lexington county. It being
late in the afternoon when the party reached
the residence of Mr. Gerard Muller it
was decided to stop at his house and have
the funeral Saturday. Captain Bradham
and the writer remained with the corpse
and the Messrs. Geiger went to their home.
At eleven o'clock the body was met at the
church by a large number of people, and
the services were conducted by Rev.
Livingston a Luthern minister. The serv
ices were impressive and the sermon was
magnificiently delivered. The ministers
references to the deceased were grand
tributes and not a dry eye was there with
in the sound of his voice. After the service
the body was laid to rest in the church
yard by the side of his ancesters.
A genuine ghost-story has yet to be at
tested; but, not so a genuine blood-purifier.
Over and over again it has been proved
that Ayer's Sarsaparilla stands alone among
medicines as the most reliable tonic-altera
