A LEAF FROM THE FAST.
How the Death of Got. Fatrlck No
blc Was Mourned In 1840.
The Hon. Patrick Noble was born in
1787 and died April, 1840. He grad
uated in 1806 at Princeton College,
New Jersey; was admitted to the
Ba?* and practiced law with the lion.
John C. Calhoun, his first cousin, in
Abbeville, about 1810 to 1838. He
was a member of the South Carolina
Hour.e of Representatives, 1812, 18? 8,
Mti it Ml !S82. Speaker if iiu* r.O'tse
In 1818 to 1824 and 1832 State Sena
tor and President of the Seiu.te In
1836. In December, 1838, he was
elected Governor of the State and
died while In office. The following
general order was issued shortly af
ter Ms death by his successor in of
"Executive Department, Columbia,
28th Of April, 1840.
"Throughout the civilized world it
is an established usage for States to
mourn for the death of their bene
factors on assuming the high execu
tive functions of South Carolina, to
which the Lieutenant Governor has
been constitutionally called by the
death of his lamented predecessor, the
Inte Patrick Noble, there would be a
dereliction of his solemn duties were
he to pass, unnoticed, this sorrowful
"Of the late Governor Noble, it may
be truly said, 'he was ilrst in the
hearts of his coutnrymen. his name
hallowed by a chastitv *?t uiotivo
that disarmed reproach ami made
powerless invective. Entering the
councils of the State at an early peri
od of his life for a series of years as
representative and senator from Ab
beville, he has been successively call
ed to preside over each branch of the
Legislature, as Speaker of the House
and President of the Senate, and as
voluntary requital was lastly honored
with the first ofllce of the Slate.'
"Of his eminent virtues as a man
his mild and forbearing rule as Chief
Magistrate, looking with deep respect
to the execution of the laws, and at
the same time mingling executive
clemency with the rigid severity of
the law, it is unnecessary to speak,
or, of the general fidelity and self
devotedness with which he discharg
ed al lthe duties of the elevated and
sacred trust confided to him. They
are fully and gratefully appreciated
by the intelligent people he has long
and elllclently served. In obedience
to the force of general sympathy and
as n tribute due to the Commander
ln-chlef, the Magistrate and the man,
the major generals throughout the
State, will cause the order to be ex
tended to their separate commands,
requiring all the ofllcers to wear the
I usual badge of mourning on the left
arm for thirty days; and that on the
10th of May the commandants at tho
Citadel, in Charleston, and the Arsen
al, in Columbia, will cause a gun to
be fired at every half-hour, beginning
at sunrise and ending at sunset, and
the Executive respectfully reconi
| mends that the 17th day of May the
citizens of the State nssemhle in their
respective churches to unite in con
dolence for the loss which South Car
ollnt has sustained.

Attack Like 'Hirers.
In fighting to keep the blood pure
the White eorcuscles attack disease
germs like tigers. Bui often germs
multiply so fnst the little fighters are
overcome. Then see pimples, boils,
eczema, saltrheum and sores multiply
and strength and appetite fall. This
condition demands Electric Bitters to
regulate stomach, liver and kidneys
and to expel poisons from the blood.
"They are tho best blood purifier,"
writes C. T. Budahn, of Tracy, Calif.,
"I have over found." They make rich,
red blood, strong nerves and build up
your health. Try them. GOc at Lau
