MR. WILLIAM H. VERNER DEAD.
Brilliant Young Columbian Killed Himself
at Morganton, N. C.
Mr. Win. H. Verner, son of Mr. Tno.
S. Verner, Master of Richland County,
committed suicide at Morganton, N. C,
last Thursday afternoon by shooting
himself through the right temple. This
rash act is supposed to have been due
to a nervous attack for which he had
been under treatment for sometime in
a Philadelphia hospital. He left there,
however, and came to Morganton with
the viev? of entering one of the hos
pitals in that city last Thursday. Late
in the afternoon his body was found in
a lumber yard.
Mr. Verner was an exceedingly bril
liant young gentleman. For the past
year he had been a student at Oxford
University, England, having won the
lirst Cecil Rhodes Scholarship from
After graduating with high honors
from the South Carolina College a few
years ago he established the Verner
High School in Coiumbia, which was a
success. While at the South Carolina
College he was a classmate of Messrs
E. P. Minter and A. C. Todd of this
city, who were greatly shocked at the
announcement of young Verner's tragic
"Stick to Your Last."
Hon. W. L. Douglass, the shoe maker
Governor, in an interview in the Boston
Advertiser some days ago gave his
"rule" for success. Governor Douglass
is not ashamed of being a shoe maker,
because he is a good one and for that
very reason he makes a good Governor.
Just at this time when so many young
men are about to begin life seriously
they will do well to read his little ser
Taking as a text
"Stick to Your Last," he says:
"What would you think of a shoe
maker, who, after making part of a
shoe on one last, became dissatisfied
and started another shoe on a different
last, keeping up this method until he
had finally spent all his money for stock
and had nothing but a lot of half-finish
ed shoes to show for it? Foolish way
to do, isn't it? But it's no more fool
ish than for a young man to tackle a
new line of business every little while
until he grows too old to learn any bus
Everything in nature is fitted to do
one thing well and spend its whole life
doing it. You never hear of the ant
going into the honey-making business;
nor of the bee building ant-hills, for a
change. Each one knows its place in
the world and sticks to it, and that is
what boys must do if they would ac
complish great things.
And remember always to keep your
ambition up to the top notch. What
ever you do, try to do it l>etter than
the other fellow. At school make it
a point to stand at the head of your
class; and at play don't be satisfied un
til you can jump the farthest or throw
the straightest. Then when you enter
business life, this matter of getting
ahead will become a habit.
It is possible for all you boys to be
kings, provided each fits himself to do
some one thing better than others do
it. But you must work and study and
persevere. You can't inherit kingships
from your fathers; you must win them
in competition with the world. As to
how to go about this, every boy will
have to work out the problem for him
self. There is no fixed rule for deter
mining the capabilities of any boy, and
the methods that will convert one bun
dle of human material into a successful
business man may prove a total failure
when applied to the next parcel. Boys
in their dispositions and possibilities
bear a striking resemblance to toads.
Did you ever poke a toad to make it
jump? If you did, then you know that
you can never tell what direction or
how far toads will jump until after
they been poked. And it's the same
way with boys. We never know what
a boy can do until after he has been
tested. But we're sure of one thing,
and that is this: If a boy chooses his
last in the light of his ability, and sticks
to it through thick and thin, he'll win
out in the end.''
"For seven yeflra," writes Geo. W.
Hoffman, of frarpar, Wash., "I had a
bitter battle, with chronic stomach and
liver trouble, but at last I won, and
cured my diseases, by the use of Electric
Bitters. I unhesitatingly recommend
them to all, and don't intend in the fu
ture to be without them in my house.
They are certainly a wonderful medi
cine, to have eure? such a bad case as
mine."' Bold, under guarantee to do

II. S soldiers who served in Cuba dur
ing'the Spanish War know what this
disease is, and that ordinary remedies
have little more effect than so much
water. Cuban Diarrhoea is almost as
severe and dangerous as a mild attack
of cholera. There is only one remedy
however, that can always be depended
upon as will be seen by the following
certificate from Mrs. Mumie Jacobs of
Houston, Texas: "I hereby certify
that Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and
Diarrhoea Remedy cured my husband
of a severe attack of Cuban diarrhoea,
which he brought home from Cuba. We
had several doctors but they did him no
good. One bottle of this remedy cured
him, as our neighbors will testify. I
thank God for so valuable a medicine."

Death of Mrs. Lucy Kasor.
Mrs. Lucy Rasur, wife of Mr. Jmnes
Rasor died at her home in Cross Hill,
May 21, 1905.
She was in her seventy-ninth year
and had lived happily with her husband
sixty-two years. Her last sickness
lasted only a week and the end came
very unexpectedly to her family. As in
everything she bore her sickness with
great patience. It was indeed a great
pleasure to be with her during her ill
ness and see her gentle sweet spirit
manifested. Her wants were never
made known only by inquiry.
Mrs. Rasor was a woman of most ex
cellent graces of character and was for
many years a useful Christian worker
in the Baptist Church. She was ever
ready to help the poor and needy. And
if she had an enemy it has never been
known. As wife and mother she was
loving and lovable, sparing not herself
in her devotion to her family./ As a
grand-mother she was devoted and very
much loved by all her grand-chiklren,
young and old. She loved her church,
her family and her God. She leaves
her husband, six daughters and three
sons to mourn her death.
It was just like her to fall asleep,
without a struggle and reach Heaven
in a single bound to be with two infant
children who died in her young woman
hood, a devoted daughter, Mrs. 1). R.
