when he discovered gasoline leaking

The lecture of Rev. J. W. Daniel, D.
D., of Charleston last Monday evening
at Institute hall was not as well at
tended as the benevolent cause he was
laboring for deserved, and as his inge
niously woven wit, wisdom, mirth, pa
thos and oratorical eloquence merited.
The subject was "The Southern Mule,"
and how he was to make such a title
apply to something of intellectual value
was "mystifying to the ordinary mind.
but Dr. Daniel did it. He portrayed
in the choicest of English the accom
plishment of this useful animal and in
doing so artistically painted word pic
tures of this country's past, present and
future civilization. The speaker would
facetiously prepare the mind for an
abstract question and then with an elo
quence such as few platform speakers
possess weave a mass of historical pro
ress, and hold his audience spellbound
as he opened up to its gaze what ex
pansion of brain and brawn has accom
plished. A number of his mirth-pro
voking sayings \vere pointed with wvise
applications, and his manner of depict
ing the mulishness of man was pathetic.
The lecture was very entertainig.
The speaker has the faculty, of dig
ging up dry facts, and converting them
into bubbling oratory, bristling with
beautiful figures, placing them be'fore
the mind's eye in a marner that great
lessons may be learned therefrom. We
hope Dr. Daniel will be innvted here
again, as we regard him and John Tem
ple Graves, and one reminds us of the
other,as being the best platform speak
ers we have yet listened at.
The people in the Oak Grove section
are somewhat irritated with Coroner
Brewer and charge him with incompe
tency for being led by an irresponsible
party to lacerate the feelings of a par
ent and the grandparents of an infant
by having the body exhumed and made
the subject for spite. The two-weeks
old infant of Mr. Leroy Drose died
-shortly after its mother, and was buried
Sat Oak Grove church. It seems that
Jim Barfield, whose wife is connected
with the infant's mother in some way,
went to Coroner Brewer and demanded
that an inquest be held, as the child's
death was suspicious. The coroner em
panelled a jury on last Sunday week,
and among the jurors was Barfield, the
man making the complaint, and a man
by the name of Dennis, son-in-law of
the coroner, who joined Barfield in the
demand for the inquest. The little
body was taken up and a post mortem
.examination held by Dr. Geiger, and
nothing but a natural cause for death
was discovered. Mr. J. C. Drose, a
grand-parent. is highly incensed over
the matter and my.s he will present
facts to the grand jury. Drose will ask
the grand jury to recommend Brewver's
dismisal on the ground that he is im
competent to .lischarge the duties of
the office, as is shown by his acting on
the demand of parties altogether irre
sponsible, and in placing upon the
panel of jurors to investigate, men who
were so much interested as to, be peti
tioners for the inquest. If it is true
that Barfield and Dennis petitioned for
the inquest Coroner Brewer should not
ave permitted them to serve on the
jury, but if the information brought to
im convinced hini there was reasona
ble ground for suspicion as to the
child's death, it was his duty to inves
tigate, but he could have done this
without mortifying the kindred and
friends, had he the propar judgment
equired of an official.
A TERRIBLE ACCIDENT.
Fly Wheer Bursts at Lukens Lumber Mill
Mr. John F. Laughery Killed.
As a result of the injuries received in
the accident at the saw mill of the
Lukens Lumber Co.. yesterday after
noon, Mr. John F. Laughery died at
Dr. Mood's Infirmary at 9:20 o'clock
last night. He was removed to the In
firmary immediately after the accident
and etorts were made to give him re
lief, but he aid not regain conscious
ness, even momentarily.
The accident occurred at the saw
mill where the ordirary work was go
ing on as usual. The regular hands
were at their usual posts. the machin
ery was working as well as usual and
there had been not the least intimation
that there was anything wrong. Mr.
Laughery, who was general manager
of the business and whose duties sel
dom carried him to the saw shed, had
just stepped into the shed with a friend.
Mr. Flippin, who he was showing over
They were standing close together
beside the engine, and about opposite
the big ten foot fly-wheel, which was
on the other side of the engine. When
they had been standing there about a
few moments watching the saw mill in
operation, the governor of the engine
suddenly refused to act, the engine's
speed increased so terrifically that the
big fly wheel. weighing about six
thousand pounds, burst into fragments
and the pieces were hurled forward
and upwards with the force of cannon
balls. The roof of the mill, just above
the wheel, had a great hole torn in it
and some of the pieces of the wheel
that passed through the roof were
picked up more than a .bundred yards
from the mill. Most of the fragments
of the wheel were projected upwards or
in a straight line forward from the
wheel, but one small piece, about five
inches square, was thrown sidewise
and striking Mr. Laughery on the right
side of the face and forehead with ter
rible force, crushed the cheek bone
and skull, the bones being forced into
the brain. -He fell instantly, Mr. Flip
pin, who was standing' beside him,
catching him as he fell. No one else
was hit by the flying fragments and it
seems wonderful that all escaped where
such ruin was wrought
It is said that Mr. Laughery realized 1
what was wrong with the engine in
stantly and made a movement toward
it to shut oil the steam but was struck
down before he had time to do so. Mr.
Charles Joyner, the sawyer, also real
ized the danger and ran to the engine
and shut off the steam, but the wheel
burst while he was in the act of stop
ping it, and his presence of mind and
bravery in the face of such nerve par
alzing danger was unavailing to pre
vent the disaster and its terrible re
sult. 1t was over so quickly that there
was scarcely time for a thought and the
danger had passed before most of the
hands realized their peril.
Mr. Laughery was removed to the
office of the company and doctors sum
moned by telephone. After he had
been examined by Drs. Cheyne, Stuck
ey and Archie China, who declared his
injuries to be mortal. he was taken. to
Dr. Mood's infirmary and the wound
dressed, and he was made as comforta
ble as possible. But there was no hope
from the first and the end came at 9:20
Mr. Laughery was a native of Penn
;ylvania, but came to Sumter about
sighteen years ago and was from
hat time identified with the lumber
business which he has successfully
nanaged for a number of years. He C
