inent In legal and political lifo of the
State passed away Tuesday night at
8:30 o'clock, at the residence of bis
daughter. Mrs. J. Quitman Marshall,
oil Laurel Street. In Columbia. Col.
Brooks was in his 79th year. He was
a native of Kdgefleld county, and had
spent the larger portion of bis life on
bis plantation in that portion of Edge
field county transferred to Greenwood
when the latter county was formed.
Col. Brooks was the youngest of
four brothers, two of whom took a
prominent part In the Mexican War,
the remaining two being equally as
prominent In the annals of the War
Bid ween the Si "Hons. In addition to
his war record Col. Brooks has been
prominent in the political life of his
native State, and has made a host of
friends throughout. South Carolina,
who will learn with regret of his death
Native of Edgeileld.
John liampden Brooks was born at
Bdgoflcld Court House, September G,
1833. He was the youngest child of

The career of Capt. J. Hampden
Brooks was not distinguished by any
one signal act. He was a brave faith
ful soldier of the Confederacy in his
youth, as were thousands of others,
and ho returned home from the war to
meet with the same patience and for
titude the changed conditions that war
had brought. He lived the life of an
?Upright citizen, and when called on to
serve 1:1s people in the State senate, he
was the same (inlet, patriotic citizen,
inspired by the highest Ideals of Amer
But men of his type are fast passing
from us. Their lofty conceptions of
public service, their scrupulous regard
for the rights of others, manifested
publicly in the observance of law and
regard for established government,
and shown privately in a gentlemour
tesy towards men and women and chil
dren, these traits make the "gentleman
of the old school," of which Col.
Brooks was one.

ronm-r Stale Superintendent of Edu

i\ iHi Fraudulent Intent.
Greenville, Nov. 17.?W. l>. .May
field, a resident of El Paso, Texas,
but a native of this county, and at one
time State superintendent of educa
tion of South Carolina, appeared be
fore Magistrate Samuel Stradley this
morning and ga\e bond for his ap
pearance at Hie January term of the
court of common ideas to answer
charges of "breach of trust with
fraudulent intent," preferred against
him by R. C. Stone of this city as ad
ministrator of the estate of John Ban
nister. In an affidavit subscribed to
before the magistrate the deponent
alleges that ' as appears from the rec
ords in the probate court W. 1). May
field was the executor of the estate,
of John Bannister, deceased; that
some four or five years ago, as he is
informed and believes, said VV. 1).
Maytield left the State of South Caro
lina and located at El Paso, Texas,
without any notice or any accounting
of Iiis doings in regard to said estate
to the probate court; that when he
left the State he had in Iiis possession
belonging to said estate the sum
of $4,601.12, and that W. ?. May
field had committed a breach of trust
with fraudulent intent by appropriat
ing said money to Iiis own use."
It was stated that Mr. Mayfleld
would be granted a preliminary hear
ing before Magistrate Stradley within
the next few days. Tonight an attor
ney for the defendant stated that Mr.
Mayfleld has paid over every cent of
the estate money and has receipts
whereby he can sustain it.
Several days ago Sheriff .1. Perry
Poole went to I'd Paso with an arrest
warrant based upon the affidavit of
Mr. Stone and with requisition papers
signed by Gov. Blease and the gov
ernor of Texas. I'pon arriving in El
Paso Sheriff Poole found that Mr.
Mayfleld was in New Mexico, having
gone there for the purpose of look
ing after certain business interests in
the State. The Creenvllle sheriff left
the pnpors with the chief of police of
El Paso with instructions to notify
Mr. Mayfield upon his return to the
city i-s to their contents. Returning
to I'd Paso Mr. Maytield received no
tice of Sheriff Poole's mission and left
at once for Greenville. He surren
dered this morning to the Greenville
county authorities and Immediately
afterwards gave bond. Magistrate
Stradley fixed the bond in the sum of
$2,000, to which W. l). Maytield, George
! k. Mayfleld, and j. VV. Moody,'affixed
their t signatures.,

Readers of farm papers and agri
cultural columns of county papers of

"What's the difference between Thom
as Phosphate and Basic Situ: . "Shall
I use Thomas Phosphate or Basic
Sing under com:" etc., etc.
Thomas Phosphate is a valuable
product of a modified method of steel
manufacture. Briefly; tins process
consists of the subjecting of the mass
of molten iron, to which a cortalll
amount of Doimitlc Limestone has
been added, to a powerful airblast
which changes the phosphorus In the
iron ore Into Phosphate Acid. This
then unites with the lime, forming a
four-lime phosphate, known to chem
ists as tetracalclum, or four-lime phos
phate (Basic Phosphate).
This process is known as the mod
ified Bessemer, or Basic, process.
Hence the sometime confusion of
terms. For, as a matter of fact, all
