South Carolina Methodists Condemn
Barbee and Smith.
COLUMBIA, S. C., Dec. 14 -The state
Methodist conference has adjourned af
ter a most harmonious meeting. The
following resolutions were offered just
before the close of the conference:
"Whereas, There is widespread dis
satisfaction among the preachers and
members of our churchi in this confer
ence on account of the methods em
ployed by the book agents of the Meth
odist Episcopal church, south, in the
collection of the war claim against the
United States government; and
"Whereas, The United States senate,
after thorough investigation, has d-.
clared that the senate was deceived by
our book agents in collecting said claim;
"Whereas, The last general confer.
ence. in re-electing Barbee & Smith
book agents, was not in possession o_
the facts afterwards developed in con
nection with the methods used in col
lecting this claim; therefore,
"Resolved 1, That the South Carolina
conference, now in session, desires to
express disapproval of the deceptive
methods used by the book agents of the
Methodist Episcopal church, south, in
aiding E. B. Stahlman in prosecuting
the claim before the senate of the United
"Resolved 2, That this conference
asks the resignation of Barbeo &
Smith-in the interest of peace and
harmony in the churci-from the office
which they now hold."
CARTER GIVEN TWO YEARS,
Former Populist State Ch;airiatn I
Guilty cf Embtzz t int.
SAVANNAH, Dec. 14.-W. F. Carter,
ex-postmaster at Meldrim, Ga., pleaded
guilty in tha United States district court
yesterday to the charge of embezzling
funds of the government to the extent
of $50, and was sentenced to two years
in the federal penitentiary at Colum
In entering his plea of guilty Carter's
attorney made a stateneat to the court
in which he said that w iile the accused
was postmaster at Meldrim he was alsc
chairman of the Georgia state Populist
executive committee. The committee
needed funds for campaign expenses.
Members of the committee assured Car
ter that all that was needed to carry the
state was a little money. Said the at
"They painted a beautiful picture tc
Carter. He was promised a good office
one that would pay well. He listened
to the tempters and gave them the
money, and, of course, he is guilty of
the misappropriation of funds."
The Populists failed to carry the
state, Carter's friends failed to come to
his assistance and he goes to prison.

State Geologist Issu-s His Report For
the Third Quarter.
MONTGOMERY, Ala., Dec. 1 . - Dr.
Eugene A. Smith, state geologist, ha.
issued his report for the third quarte
of 1899, and it shows an immense in
crease in the mineral rroduction of the
state. It indicates that the mineral
outppt of Alabama lor the present year
will be considerably the largest in its
history. There is believed to be nc
doubt that the total production of coal
for the year will exceed. 7,500,000 tons.
The geologist's report gives the fol
lowing figures of production for the
quarter ending Oct. 1: Coal, 1,908,065
tons; coke, 475,668 tons; pig iron, 262,
861 tons; stone for flux, 162,169 tons;
iron ore, 673,845 tons; bauxite, 4,371 tons;
stone for buildin~g, 17.250 cubic feet.
The production of the second and
third quarters was as follows:
Coal, 3,796,060 tons; coke, 941,230
tons; pig iron, 5t1,404 tons; iron ore,
1,294,463 tons; bauxite, 9,220 tons; stone

FULLER PLACED ON TRIAL,
He Is Charged With the Murder of
31rs. Eugenia Pottle.
MAcOs, Dec. 14.-Allen Fuller, the
negro charged with the murder of Mrs.
Eugenia Pottle, was placed on trial in
the superior court today.
The general impression seems to be
that he will be convicted. The princi
p1 witness for the state will be Alfred
dd, the negro who Fuller said com
mitted the crime. His testimony is
looked on as being very important, as
he was the last person to see Mrs. Pot.
tle with Fuller on the night of Nov. 20.
The officers do not believe that Redd
was connected with the crime in any
What is now puzzling the attorneye
on both sides is how the body was car
ried to the river. It is presumned that a
wagon was used, and as Fuller has no
wagon, that adds to the mystery.

There is some reason for calling an
owl the bird of wisdom, and yet there
is cause for wondering if the crow is
not mentally his superior. Crows are
not disheartened by the gloom of lato
autumn. If the fog is too dense to fly
through it, they rise above it or trot
about the ground, discussing the situa
tion with their fellows. Is this speak
ing too positively? I have long been
familiar with an observing nman who
has livetd all his days within sight andl
hearing of crows. Hie claims to under
stand their language and can repeat the
"words'' that make up their vocabulary.
Certainly crews seem to talk, but do
they? Does a certain sound made by
thei have always the one significance?
Year after year I have listened and
watchetd, watched and listened, and
wondered if my friend wats right. He
believes it. I believe it-almost. Are
there limitations to ornithological in
terpration? And is this an in;tance
where truth is unattainable?-Lippin

State Board of Health Determined to
Stamp Out Smallpox.
COLUMBIA, S. C., Dec. 15.-The state
board of health is to take the smallpox
situation in this state in hand at once
and deal with it in the only manner
that will accomplish the stamping out
of the disease. There are to bEt no half
way measures, but men will go to work
in a few days who will have the whole
power of the state behind them, and
compulsory vaccination will be enforced
without respect of persons.
A few days ago Governor McSweo
ney, in view of the general alarm in(
cated in letters received by him from all
quarters of the state affected, suggested
that the state board of health hold a
meeting and adopt some plan that would
completely stamp out the disease.
Yesterday all tha members of the
board, save Dr. Nardin, arrived in the
city. They met in the forenoon and all
were agreed that the only way to fight
the disease successfully was to enforce
ccmpulsory vaccination in the infected
localities by means of officers appointed
for the purpose, with power to act, to
isolate alL cases and guard the patients.
After a full discussion Governor Mc
Sweeney undertook to see that the nec
essary money was borrowed to meet all
emergencies, relying on the legislature
to pay the bills, and he is at once to ap
point a number of experts, who will
have specific power given them to en
force compulsory vaccination and act as
their judgment dictates.

PLAYED A WAR GAME.
HOW THE BIG MAN FLEECED THE
The Tricky Six Footer Worked His
Physical Defect to the Limit and
Reaped a Rich Harvest While the
During the civil war in what was
then a pretty village of Michigan and
has since become a city without losing
any of its beauty lived a strapping six
footer who looked as hard as nails,
dressed well, talked smoothly and was
Eet up like a soldier. He had no means
of support visible to the naked eye in
the village which he called home, but
he would make occasional trips from
which he returned with plenty of
money and a fund of interesting talk
about some section of the north. The
people thought him a mystery, but he
was a pleasant one, and curiosity never
went further than to ask ingenious ques
tions that were just as ingeniously par
ried. After his harvest was at an end
the mystery explained himself without
reserve, and no one expressed serious
disapproval of the way in which his
wits had won him his money.
"It was a simple case of diamond cut
diamond," he laughed. "I've been tak
ing fleeces from the fellow that went
out to shear. I'm not an Apollo Belve

specimen of physical development. The
truth is that I'm a whited sepulcher. I
was born with a defective heart and
would not take three minutes of real
violent exercise for all the money you
could load on a freight train. I take
things easy all along the line, and the
engine keeps pumping up to require
" When I could see the end of what
property was left me, and it was not far
away, I cast about for some light work
to do and concluded to deal with the
substitute brokers. There was no chance
of meeting the required medical exam
inations, so I took another tack. When
ever I visited a place in my business,
I'd manage incidentally to fall in with
the broker. I'm better than a raw hand
as a jollier, and I'd soon have some
mutual friends as innocent parties in
" When it came in naturally, I'd
chaff the broker about his business and
ask what kind of a soldier I'd make.
He would either jump open mouthed at
the proposition or chaff back under an
impression that I would never think of
going to war. In either case it would
usually come to some kind of a proposi
tion from the broker. Then the other
fellows would guy me, intimate that I
was a bluffer and wonder how I was to
get out of the thing without a clear
"Here's where my fine work came in.
I'd demand a retainer, and I'd put it
high enough just to maka the broker
think that I was trying to escape him.
If he would pay me a specified sum
down, I would agree to appear at the
recruiting office the next day and offer
my services, but I gave notice that I
assumed no chances. If they would not
have me, the broker must stand the
loss. The idea of my being rejected al
ways raised a laugh and only tended to
confirm the broker in the belief that I
was trying to escape him. When the
doctor turned me down, I went into the
dumps, became nervously timid, aroused
the sympathy of those with whom I had
become acquainted and snapped an or
der to the disgruntled broker to keep
clear away from me.
"The bestt haul I made was in Pitts
burg. A coal baron there who could not
well enlist and who had not been draft
ed wanted a representative in the army
who would make a name honorable to
that of the principal. He was after a
bighandomeintelligent fellow of
woheculd be proud and put the
whole matter into the hands of a shrewd
little broker. I managed to meet him
at the Monongahela House, and I work
ed around to the main subject in the
manner I have described, hut I could
see that he was sharp and did not like
to run any chances.
"While he went to dinner, after
which we were to resume our talk, I
went out and had a short conference
with a huge truckman. When I again
met the broker, that truckman insisted
on bothering us and, after showing a
proper amount of patience, I threw him
half way across the office, and he went
limping out, while all observers grew
wide eyed in their wonder. I did not
exert enough strength to throw a half
grown boy five feet, but the truckman
knew his business, and was paid $20 f or
attending to it.
"That apparently cool courage and
gigantic strength removed all doubt
from the mind of the broker. I was the
man ho wanted, and he wanted me
badly. I stuck out till I got $2,000 as
a 'retainer,' and then was rejected. I
felt like giving the money hack when
the millionaire came around to condole
with me and tell how disappointed he
was in not having me for a substitute,
but I didn't. It would have been an ad
mission that I was not in a legitimate
line of business. "--Detroit Free Press.

Y ours for a very Merry
Xmas and a Bright and
Happy New Year,
J. RYTTENBERI SONSE
Yes, it 's the same old story, we know how you feel-just don't
know what to buy for Xmas gifts. Now listen, we don't intend to
say much, but what we do say, goes. We have one of the largest
varieties of new and seasonable, also useful as well as ornamental,
stocks to select from that we have ever displayed. It makes no
dilTerence who you may want the present for, we can please you.\
All we ask is a look. Come in, make yourself at home; if you
don't buy. you'll find just the same treatment as if you had. Space
will not permit us to mention all the different lines, so will try and
content ourselves with a few. Of course the children are first.
Well, I should say so; all kinds, at any old price.
See our centre tables of toys-a great big lot of all kinds-a
snap picked up by our New York representative, a line of samples
from one of the largest importers in New York. Prices on these are
way down. An early call will mean money in your pocket. Lots
of other truck for the children. Can't call them all. Just come
BOOKS -:. BOOKS -:. BOOKS.
You know what our holiday line of books has been in the past; well,
just look at this year's line. All kinds, all prices. Publishers' prices
smashed to pieces by us.
See the books we offer at 12c. It's a wonder and no mistake.
Complete line of Chatterbotes. Wish we could tell you all we really
have in our book line, but space will not permit us.
Handkerchiefs for All.
We have the largest stock of Handkerchiefs ever displayed in these
parts. See our line Embroidered Handkerchiefs at 5c. Something like 50
styles to select from. That's pretty sweet, don't you think? Then we
have them at 10, 12,, 15, 20, 2.5, 35, 40, 50, 75c and a little higher. Every line
the right stuff for the monei.
New and complete holiday line just opened. There is nothing else that
wakes as nice and serviceable a present as a nice Umbrella. Just see the
line we have for both ladies and gentlemen. You'll not find their equal
elsewhere. We have marked them very close, just to make fast selling,
Neckwear and Mufflers always acceptable. We have them, too, All the
new kinds and colors.
Last, but not least,
Groceries for the Holidays.
We have a full and complete stock, at low down prices. Before you
buy your Groceries for your cakes, give us a call. We may save you a
penny or two.
I. you can't come early, come late. Our stores will remain open every
night from the 18th for your convenience.
Yours for business,
J. RYTT5ENBERG & SONS,
