A Sad Death.
Miss Nannie Roland, daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. J. J. Roland, of this city, died
nt an oarly hour last Tuesday morning.
This lovely and amlablo young lady
had just arrived ""fit tho years of early
'womanhood. Her life was one of those
boautlful ones cut off at tho very mo
ment when seemingly its precious in
fluences worn beginning to expand and
promiso to irradiate and make happior
tho daily course of her family, her
friends and all thoso with whom it was
her lot to aasociato. She was a sincere
Christian, devoted to her church and
i'ullillmg with alacrity all tho duties
which tho relationship involved.
Tho funeral occurred un Tuesday after
noon and was largoly attonded by sor
rowing friouds and relatives.
Our whole community sympathizos
tondorly with tho parents and relatives
of tho deceased young lady in the great
and irreparable loss which they have
su lie rod.
Ijot Us Give.
I,aier accounts of the great storm of
the 27th inst. show that it was ono of tho
most appalling disasters that has ever
occurred in the Unltoti .States. More
than a thousand porsons on tho sea is
lands and in Boaufort havo lost tboir
lives, the crops havo boon totally do
stroyod and the survivors aro left homo
loss. Starvation and immediate suffer
ing thronten* them. In answer to the
cry for help, thore Is but ono thing for ub
to do. That is, to rospond. Tho Mayor
and committee, whoso aotlvo work Is
told ol In another column, must have
tho liberal assistance of all our people.
Tho unfortunate and helpless pooplo of
tho low country must bo comforted and
saved, and Laurons must ho generous in
doing her part. What wo do should be
dono (jiiickiy, and boforo another sun
sets a largo contribution should go from
us to thoso who havo lost their all.

aud George Bowers and Wade Cannon
who burned Mr. J. L>. Hairston's house
uear Ooldvillo last July. Tho exoeution
occurred as usual in tho old Jail stablo
and was performed neatly aud with
propor decorum aud dispatch. Tbe num
ber oi persons permitted by law were
witnesses. Three hundred people, no
groes for the most part, stood about tho
jail yard in the drenching rain until long
after the ghastly transaotion within had
An Advkivtiskii reporter called on tho
three doomed nogroes shortly before
their death. Ferguson was foundread
Ing his Bible, whou tho reporter roaehed
his cell. lie was In a cheorful framoof
mind apparently and talked freely. He
was entirely reconciled to his fate and
exprossed full assurance of salvation.
llowors and Cannon were singing a
hymn when the reporter entered tho
passage upon which their cell opous.
They wero far from being in the pleas
ant humor in which Ferguson was
found but nelthor manirosted any ovl
dencos of terror or romorse. Tlmy de
nied with vehemence that thoy had
burned Mr. Halrstou's house and oneot
thom said that be had shod toars whon
he board oi the flro. Both doolarod tbat
they wore frightened into coufesslon.
At tho gallows Rev. J. F. Jackson, of
the colored Methodist church read a
passage of Soripture, the twonty-soventh
Psalm, and delivered a brio! pi lyor. A
few lines oi a hymn woro sung. 'lowers,
who Is a slight and spare mado fellow,
walked rather unsteadily to tho gallows
but otherwiso ho as well as his comrade
In crime woro ilrm in tholr behavior.
In answer to aquostlou from tho sheriff
both declared that the}'had no further
statement to make in roforonco to tho
burning. Bowors asked t hat his sistor
bo lold good-by foro him. John Ferguson
maintained his choerful behavior to tho
last. He said that ho diod with malico
in his heart towards no ono. A few min
utes boforo tho cap was adjusted ho was
obsorved to smile and address somo
question to Sheriff McCravy rolative to
the death apparatus.
At fifty-four minutes past, twolyo
o'clook tho trap was sprung and tho trio
foil about four aud a half loot. Tho
necks of Bowors and Cannon were bro

Sunday night was a stormy one

trees, scattered fencos, gardens,

Late corn was about as level

"Death, beauteous (loath, tho jewel of the
just, shining nowhere but in the dark!
What mysteries do lie beyond thy dust."
She, our loved ono lias flown from ub ;
gone to realms of unknown joy and hap
piness. During her school days ehe
proved to bo n faithful and a loving, obe
dient student. Even the littlo children
would run to meet her as they saw bor
coming through the campus. As bIio
left the school room the same sweet and
loving ono filled a place in the liomo.
The angel of tho homo and tho idol of
her parents' heart. Tho place she has
left iB vacant now, and will bo forever.
When Sundays would come around
you could always find her in hor usual
place in the Habbath School. How she
shall bo missed. A gloom of sadness
prevails over all tho loved ones she ha8
During her sickness she bore it with
patient ami long suffering. It was not
only a pleasure, but a delight to admin
ister to her desires, and as death drew
nearer sho passed away as peacefully and
calmly as a llower that folds its leaves
and goes to sleep. This tender flower
could not stay on earth longer, .dio so
fair, gentle, kind and true, (iod >.tu Uis

moro noblo cause than dwelling hero
in oin, so he took our angel home to
Himself in heaven.
Do not grieve, loved ones, she has on
ly gone on before to prepare for you.?
The time will not be long before she
shall come in tho form of an angel to
wolcomo you home.
