Georgetown, Dee. ?The Bigham
Avant ease still stands out prominently
as n subject of lUUCll public couiuient.
and it has bullied the public consid
erably to reach a satisfactory solution
Of the present status of the eise. in
deed, the whole matter from beginning
to end is shrouded i;i mystery
W. B. Avant is now in the peniten
tiary, but he has t.ot commenced serv
ing the sentence which was Imposed
uncn >in . Ihre- and a half years. Soon
liter the verdict in 'Ids euse was ren
dered by the jury, the attorneys in the
case made motion for a new trial, on
the .mounds that the verdict was not
in accordance With the law and evi
dence, in that the conviction of man
slaughter was Improper, as the requi
site essentials of this decree of homi
cide were not brought out In the evi
dence. However. Judge Watts ruled
that the conviction, under the com
mon law, was proper. The defendants,
W. lt. Avant and I!. C. Bigham, gave
bond in the sum of Sl.eOO each, pend
ing an appeal to the supreme court
I apou Vilich the attorneys for tie de
fendants gave verbal notice Imme
diately ?fter the refusal of a new trial
in the circuit court. Lai r they claim
to have Mied the required notice. So
licitor W. II. Wells contends thai the
statutory requlreinents of an appeal to
the supreme court have never been
complied with by the defendants'
attorneys, while the defense con
tends that it has. This question ,
seem.- to be the pivotal point of the j
case at present, and this point ot" law
is also applicable t,> (he silpi'i lite court.
Aftor tie- time allowed for making
an appeal to the supreme court had
elapsed. Solicitor Wells wired the
sheriff of Georgetown county t<> appre
hend the defendants, and Avant, hear
ing thai he was wanted by the sheriff,
came t.? Georgetown and surrendered
himself, which released his bondsmen.
Later the sheriff had instructions to
lake Avanl to the penitentiary, which
he did: but the authorities of this In
stitution were notified not to put Avant
on his sentence until further notice.
In the meantime Bigham had never
surrendered himself and still held his
bondsmen. Various reports have been
I circulated to the effect that Bigham
COUld not he found. Whether this
rumor is true or not. no one here
knows, hut the consensus of opinion is
that ?ig'iam will not be found when
wanted. \V. B. Avant, a young man
about -1 years of ago, is well known
throughout this county. lie began
work as a poor hoy on a farm and has
accumulated considerable wealth for
a young man his age. Avant has sold

GRACE OF GIVING
By W. T. Austin
Cross mil. Dec. 6th.?The Rev. G.
M. ilolllng8Worth preached a sermon
yesterday on the "Grace oi' Giving."
The points were brought out that
Christians ought to give liberally and
cheerfully; remembering the great gift
Of God. giving his Son for us. What
is our standard of giving? Is it as
much as we arc able? Or is it just
as little as we can. to be respectable?
Or do we compare ourselves with some
Other one and give about ball' as much
:ts BOine one who is able to give only
half as much as we?
The Master saw them casting money
into the treasury ami remarked that a
poor widow who gave her mite had
cast in more than they all. I suspect
the Master could say the same thing
today of us.
Some poor widow who has only two
hundred dollars worth of property
pays her two dollars to the Master's
cause, and she is not expected to pay
more; her neighbor who has twenty
thousand dollars worth of property
pays his twenty dollars ami thinks
that is liberal. The widow pays one
dollar for i-very on.- hundred the Lord
has intrusted to her and her neighbor
pays one dollar for every thousand
thai the Lord has intrusted to him.
i hope the sermon yesterday and
the study of the Sunday school lesson
may open our eyes to the truth that
what we have of this worlds goods
is a trust for winch we are responsible
and that the Lord will call on us to
account for the use or abuse of all our
talents. Some people who profess to
be Christians remind nie of the man
on a sinking shi;> who tied his gold
around him. and as much of the other
passenger's gold as he could get his
hands on although it only acted as
a weigh! to carr> him to the bottom
of the sea.
Some i,in? has -the I.ord (hies
not look so much at what we ? as
at what we have left". A worthy
cause was presented to a man recent
ly, lb' had had some trouble, sick
ness etc. Instead of giving a thank
offering to God for sparing his loved
ones, ho said, '-we can't give now. wo
have had big doctor- hills to pn> the
Lord must excuse us." Another said,
? | owe lots of money -but we see no
sign of self denial. If the Lord dealt
with us as man Would, surely He
might say 'take the ten talents from
him and give it to who has only one
