FATAL SUoPTING AFFRAY A9
LAURENS C. H.-A fatal shooting
affait occurred onSaturday evening
aborthausk at Laurens C. H., in
whih W. 11. Pool. was fatally
wounded and J. W. Fowler slight
ly injtured. It appears that on
the.evening mentioned Mr. .Fowler
who is the uncle of Miss EVA Pool'
who lives near the court house
with her mother, went to the-store
of W. H. Pool and accused him of
having been too intimate with Miss
Pool. Mr. Pool, who is a distant
cousin of the lady, denied the
charge. Mr. Fowler insisted that
he should make reparation by mar
riage. It is said that Mr. Fowler
then remarked that there must be
some settlement of the affair at
once, and drawing his pistol, be
gan firnig. Mr. Pool returned the
fire, woundling Mr. Fowler in both
When the affair was over, it was
discovered that four shots had
struck Mr. Pool, one being In the
abdomen, one in the leg, one in the
arm ond one in the side. His re
covery is thought to be impossible.
Mr. Pool has not been arrested.
The affair has naturally created a
great 1seal of excitement. Miss
.E'va Pool is a beautiful and fasci
nating young lady, and Mr. Pool
has been visiting her for some
time. As will be remembered, a
suit for $10,000 damages for se

Pool, Miss Martha lurdette being

well known here, and there was
anxious inquiry for particulars
when a private telegram to a citi

here was received.--Daily News.
D EA TH or N. B. FjREEMzAi&N.--Na
poleon Bonaparte Freeman died
Monday morning at two o'clock.
aged 4 'years, after an illness of
about six weeks duration, lHe was
a native of Rutherford countyv, N.
C., and came here in 1809, byeing
at that time employed as an ovei'
seer' on the Air Line, then in pro-.
(css of construction. In 1870 he
engaged1 in the liquor business,
which he has carried on ever
since. lie was at one time street
overseer', and under his direction
lasting and valuiiable improvements
were made. The dleceased was at
member of the Executive Commit
tee of the Pie.mont Fair Asoca
iion and always used his best en
deavors in promoting the advance
mnent of the interests of'that organ
imation. Hie was District Deputy
Grand Master, I. 0. 0. F,, and
Past Master of Mountain L2odge,
No. 15, of this city. In 1875,- he
married to Miss Alice Pool, daugh
ter of W. P. Pool of this city.
Mr. Freeman's business integri
ty, liberality and public spirt were
among his principal characteristic.
He was always ready to contribute
generously to every d'eerv ing ob
ject, and his purse was ever open
to relieve misfortune or distress.
'There were few public enterprises
whieb were for Gree.nvnlk' ben
fit that did not enlist his aid and
encouragemedt, ana the loss of so
useful a citizen will be generally
Mr. Freeman's death was rather
unexpected, as he rode out in a
buggy on Sunday in company with
Newton Poole and seemed much
better. He grew worse however,
on Sunday night about 11 o'clock
and died Monday morning as sta
ALWAYS LATE.--Half the value
of anything to be done consists in
doing it promptly. And yet a
large class of persons are always
in advance of them, and so it is
with their appointments and en
gagements. They are late, very
likely, in rising in the morning,
and also in going to bed at night;
late at their meals; late at the
tounting-house or office; late at
their appointments with others.
Their letters are sent to the post
office just as the mail is closed.
They arrive at the wharf just as
the steamboat is leaving it. They
come into the station just as the
train is going out. They do not
entirely forget or omit the engage
ment or duty, but they are always
beiid time, and so are generally
in haste, or rather in a hurry, as if
they had been born a little too late,
and forever were tr3ing to catch
up with the lost time. They waste
time for themselves and waste it
for others, and fail of the comfort
and influence and success which
they might have found in system
atic and habitual punctuality. A
good old lady, who was askedl why
she was so early in her seat in
church, is said to have replied that
it was her religion not to disturb
the religion of others. And if it
were with all a )art, both of cour
tesy and duty, not to say of relig- ]
ion, never to be unpunctual, they
would save time for, as well as
annoyance to others, and aid them
selves to success and iufluence in
ta thousand ways.
--Courage that grows from (cOn
ttitution often fosakes the rnan
when he has cceasions for' it ; cour
age which arises from a sense ofH
duty acts in) a uniform manner,
--A judicious silence is better'
than truth spoken with charity.
