The inauguration of Gov. Hey ward

in next weei?s*'49sue of The adver
Ancient Llfchtiilnir Rod*.
The ancients did not have lightning
rods constructed ns ours arc, but they
hnd lightning conductors, which shows
that they knew how to protect them
selves from the danger that lies in a
thunderstorm. Even so long ago as
the tenth century lightning was divert
ed from fields by planting in them
long sticks or poles, on top of which
were lance heads. It Is said that the
Celtic soldiers used to try to make
themselves safe from the stroke dur
ing a storm by lying on the ground
with their naked swords planted point
upward beside them.
There was long ago on the shore of
tho Adriatic sea a stronghold known
as Dunlo castle, on the highest tower
of which there was an Iron rod that
was used ns a means of telling when a
storm was approaching in summer. A
soldier was always stationed near tho
rod when the sea had a threatening
look, and It was his duty to frequently
put tho Iron point of his javelin closo
to the rod, watching for the spark that
would tell him It was time to warn the
fishermen by ringing a big bell.
Their Teeth Bctrnr Them.
"There is only one feature of an ac
tor which will 'give him away' when
disguised in a perfect makeup," re
marked a young actor, "and that fea
ture Is tho teeth. Let a man do what
ho will to his face, let him cover It
with all kinds of paint, beard* whisk
ers and what not, but the teeth will
disclose his Indubitable Indentlty di

lino or to emit a laugh.
"I myself, when sitting In tho front
of a houeo watching other people's per
formances, have frequently been puz
zling myself as to the Identity of a
cleverly made up player, but no sooner
has tho said player disclosed his 'Ivo

provided, of course, ho has chanced to
bo a man whose face I know moder
ately well. Strangely enough, hardly

Kalaln* the Wind.
It seems Incredible, but Is nevertbe
lees a fact, that as late as the year
1814 an old woman named Beede Mil
lie of Pomona, in tho Orkney Islands,
sold favorable winds to seamen at the
email price of slxpenco a vessel. For
many years witches were supposed to
sell the wind. The Finlanders and Lap
'landers made quite n trade by selling
Winds. The old woman, after being
itvcll paid by the credulous sailors,
need to knit three magical knots. The.
buyer was told he would have a good
fjale when he untied the first knot, the
ftecond knot would bring r, strong
foind and the third a severe tempest.?

WHAT REV. DR. TURNER DID TO
?EN. ITGOWAN'S FINE PICTURE.
How a Distinguished Preacher Solved
a Question of Morals?A Good
Story by Mr. Hugh Wilson.
In the last issue of the Abbeville
l'ress and Banner, Editor Hugh Wilson
writes the clever story printed below
which will be of interest to those who
remember the late distinguished Pres
byterian Minister. Dr. McNeill Trrner
and General Samuel McOowan.
Row Dr. Turner was well known in
Laurens, having preached here fre
quently many years ago and in other
parts of the county:
Fume iine ago the President placed
in the White House, as a work of art,
a nude picture, and since then the W.
C. T. U. have boon greatly exercised
thereat, protesting against the reten
tion of the painting on the wall of the
Various of the great newspapers of
tho country, including the News and
Courier, have taken up the question,
and, from different points of view, are
discussing the propriety of the Presi
dent's action. We have heard nothing
from the White Houso as to the result
of the W. C. T. U. resolutions and the
If our brethren will permit, we will
relate a little incident, as it was told
to us. concerning a picture which
we presume, was clothed not entirely
different from the represenation which
is made of the picture that adorns tho
walls of the President's studio or art
When tho war broke out Gen. Mc
GoWan was one of the first to take an
active part. His house was vacated,
and he left pictures and furniture in
the building. In the course of time
the Rev. I). McNeil Turner became, the
temporary occupant in the' absence of
tho owner. Tno furniture was all
right, and'tho pious divine enjoyed the
luxury of the best of furnishings. Only
one thing lie did not like, and that was
a nude picture which hung on one of
the walls, it was a thing of beauty as
It came from tho hands of one of the
masters, and represented a handsome
cost In money. But for reasons which
havo not boon explained to us, Dr. Tur
ner could neither look upon this pic
ture nor contemplate its beauty with
tho holy emot ions that should pervade
the heart and mind of that pious preach
er. Being an upright man, and, as far
as wo know, pure in heart, he could not
temporize or compromise his convic
Tho W. C. T. U. had not then como
into existence, and tho matter was not
referred to the newspapers at all. Dr.
Turner needed no counsel. Iiis con
victions were clear, and his duty was
plain. There was no time for foolish
ness. Tho moment for action had
como. That picture was unhooked from
tho wall. It was carried to the wood
pile in the back yard, where tho Pious
Doctor, like the Truthful George, used
his hatchet on the picture until the
most expert eye in such things could
not have recognized in it a thing of
beauty or a work of art.
Until the close of the war, the Doc
tor slept the sleep of the just with the
conviction of a conscientious duty well
performed. When General McGowan
returned and learned the fate of his
most costly picture, he thought the
vulgar minded preacher might have
turned the picture to tho wall. He
made the above observation, however,
after *ho hud relieved himself of a suita
ble number of expletives.

AN OLD FAVORITE
"A SONG THAT OLD WAS SUNG"
The OM Sexton
a By Park Benjamin in
PARK BENJAMIN. Journalist and lecturer, was born
at Demerarn, British Guiuna. Jn ISOft of American par
ents. Ho died In New York in 18iM. Park Benjamin was
n lawyer by education, but his life was spent ns
an editor and lecturer. Ills sonnets arc considered by
many tho beBt of his pooms. For many years Mr. Ben?'
Jamln was prominent in tho social life of Now York.
NIGH to n grave that was nowly mode,
Leaned a sexton old on his earth-worn spade:
Ills work was done, and he paused to wait
The funeral train at the open gate.
A rolle of bygone days was ho,
And his locks were while as the foamy sea;
And these words came from Ids lips bo thin:
"I gather them in: I gather them In.
"I gather them in I for man and hoy,
Year after year of grief and Joy,
I've buildcd the houses that lie around, ?
In every nook of this burial ground;
Mother and daughter, father and son,
Oome to my solitude, one by one:
Hut come they strangers or oome they kin??
I gather them in, I gather them In.
"Many are with me, but still I'm alone,
I'm king of the dead?and 1 make my throne
On a monument slab of marble cold:
And my scepter of rule Is the spade I hold:
Come they from cottage or come they from hall,
Mankind are my subjects, all, all, all!
Let them loiter in pleasure or tollfully spin?
I gather them in, I gather them In.
"I gather them In, and their flnol rest
Is here, down here, In the earth's dark breast!"
And the sexton ceased, for the funeral train
Wound mutely o'er that solemn plain!
And I said to my heart, when time is told,
A mightier voice than that sexton's'old
Will sound o'er the last trump's dreadful din?
"I gather them in, I gather them In."

"No," replied the artist; "this was
not a matter of professional pride.- A
tradesman sent mo a bill In which lie
nnintentinlly charged mo only about a
third of what I owed him."
"Thought he stood a better chance
of getting It, I suppose," interrupted
the facetious friend.
"Now, hold on, Billy, and let mo tell
the story. Well, that WAS the second
time he had sent a bill for less than I
owed, and I wrote him a note calling

"No, aunty," replied the young wife;

Charles I. was resoluto In his decision,

A GREAT LOSS.
One of tlie South's Bril
Mr. (ionzales Was Shot Without Warn
ing Whou Unarmed? Lingered
At 1.45 o'elock last Thursday after
noon Lieutenant Governor James H.
1 illman shot N. G. Gonzales, editor of
The State, the 38 caliber pistol ball,
entering Mr. Gonzales' right Bldo
above the vest pocket and coming out
behind the vest pockoton the leftside.
Mr. Gonzales lingered until 1:05 P.M.
Monday; dying in tho Columbia Hos
Col. Tlllman had come out of the
state house whore he had boon presid
ing over the senate with State Senators
Talblrd of Beaufort and G. W. Brown
of Darlington. Thoy met Mr. Gon
zales at the corner of Garvais and Main
streets in front of the state houso. The
latter was going to his lunch. Mr.
Tillman drew one of two Colt's maga
zines pistols on his person and Hred at
Mr. Gonzales. The latter staggered
against tho sido of a building. Tlllman
aimed again. "Shoat again, you cow
ard!" exclaimed Gonzales and Tillman
lowered his weapon, wiping it on his
sleeve. Senator Talbird thinks that be
fore the shooting Tillman said: ' I got
your message!" Mr. Brown heard
nothing. Congressman Aiken was near
and he heard nothing. Mr. Domlnick
of Newherry thinks he and Mr. Alken
were too far otT to hear anything.
Mr. Tillman was promptly arrested
and carried to j ill. P. IL Nelson was
employed as counsol and Mr. Tillman
was advised to say nothing. He made
Mr. Gonzales was carried to his of
fice near by. Ho stated that lie had
sent Tlllman no message, that no word
was spoken before the shooting, that
he had met Tillman face to face on the
streets some days before and that he ex
pected no trouble. He was not armed.
Mr. Gonzales was later taken to the
hospital and operated upon. The ball
tore the intestines in [our places and
penetrated the liver.
Senator Georgo W. Brown, of Dar
lington, who was walking on the Inside
of the three, and nearest to Mr. Gon
zales, said that strange as it may ap
pear, ho did not see the shooting and
knew but little. Just at the time, he
had turned to one side to speak to a
lady friend who was passing, and thon
while turned ho heard the pistol fire.
His friend ran and he tried to 6top and
? sslst her. lie heard no words, and
went olT to calm his friend, who was
much excited. He heard nothing pass
botween tho two men, but did not see
the a H air, aud, of course, Senator
Brown is absolutely candid In his state
Senator Talbird who was one of tho
party walking along, does not care to
talk f<>r publication, and says he heard
Mr. Tillman say, "I got jour message,"
and that he thinks tho shot was fired
after hs used tho expression. Both
Senator Brown and Senator Talbird
said they weic so much surprised and
amazed that they hardly realized what
had happened, but there was no quar
rel or fight.
The presumable cause of tho shoot
ing w??s the editorial attacks made by
The Stato upon Mr. Tillman while he
was a candidate for govornor last sum
mer. In the campaign The State
handled Tillman with gloves off, using
strong language. It mido many spe
cific charges, presenting evidence in
detail as to some of them. Mr. Tillman
denied the charges but can scarcely be
said to have answered them spcc'.Hl
cally with evidence to refute them.
Many other newspapers d-mouncod
Tlllman In terms not less severe than
Tho Stato during the campaign but
The State, having a general circula
tion and bolng a dally paper, seems
ohieily to have aroused Mr. Tlllman's
