OF WIFE MURDER
W. B. Avant, Sow Serving Time la
Penitentiary, PUcea Moral Respons
ibility far tbe Death of Mrs. Rath
Crisp Ringham, npen Dr. 6. 0. Ring
ham who Is at Large.
The unhappy end of Mrs. Ruth Crisp
Ringham, who was shot by her own
husband, accldentlly it is claimed, at
Hurrel s Inlet summer before last has
again been brought to the public no
tice by a conversation between Avant
and his lawyer at the state peniten
tiary. It is not stated whether steps
have been taken to get a pardon for
Avant, but judging from the tone of
Avant'? story, that is the object In
The story as it appeared in The Co
lumbia State Thursday is as follows:
The first light that has ever been i
thrown on the killing of Mrs. Ruth
Crisp Bigham. the young wife of Dr.
O. C. Bigham of Florence, at Murrel's
Inlet summer before last, has been
thrown by a eenversation between W.
B. Avant, now in the penitentiary,
serving his sentence, and his attorney
Walter Hazard of Georgetown. This
case came to trial in the court of gen
eral sessions In Georgetown county.
Dr. Bigham and Avant were put on
trial under the charge of murder.
There was. in this case, the greatest
feeling among the people in the vi
cinity, and the story that she had
been shot by accident was hooted at
and a rigid examination demanded.
Nothing could be learned, nor was
brought out on the tr'al that would
throw the slightest light or the <sub- j
ject. The young woman was a visitor
at the home of Avant, with her hus-;
band, who was an intimate friend of
Avant. A figure was seen near dusk
cloaked. apparantly. and gliding
among the brush. The two men seized
a gun, and alleging that they thought
the figure to be either an animal
prowling about, or some one intent on
mischief, shot, the gun being in
Avant's hands, and he being urged to
shoot by Bigham. Investigation re
vealed the fact that they had killed
Mrs. Bigham. Avant acknowledged
the shooting, hut declared that he was
innocent of any intent to do harm.
Beyond that nothing was ever learned.
The men were tried and found guilty
of manslaughter. An appeal was
,made for a new trial, and they were
released on a bond. It was held by
the solicitor that the notice of appeal
had never been comuloted. and he or
dered the arrest of the parties.
Bigham went to Greenville and, it!
was said that he had fled, but his
family said that he had fled nowhere
and could have been taken by the
sheriff at any time. Avant volun
tarily gave himself up to the court,
and his bdnd was doubled. madefS,
000, the supreme court having dis
missed the appeal. They were both
on hand for a new sentence, but
walked out and Bigham has not been
heard from since, and his bond was
never Increased as was Avant's.
Avant was arrested recently in
Texas, and Is now serving nis sen
It is known that at first the family
of the young woman accepted the
story of Avant and the husband that
the shooting was a terrible accident,
but later seemed to change their
view and had the body disinterred and
taken from the burying ?round In
Florence county to their home In
The story that Avant tells is that
he did not mean to kill Mrs. Bigham.
nor bad he any Idea that it was at
Mrs. Bigham that he was shooting,
but that his friend had been at him
constantly during the day with re
ports and suggestions that some one
was looking for him to do bodily
harm, that his mind had really be
come affected by them, and he was
nervous and upset.
He does not know whether or not
his friend had any purpose In view In
these .torlos or not; he does not think
it is likely; but he did work fo se
riously on his, Avant's mind, that he
was ready to accept anything, and
when this crouching figure was seen
nround the house he was quite pre
pared to act when Bigham suggested
that it was the same one that he had
spoken of coming to do him Injury,
and suggested that ho get the gun
and drive them away. He was pre
pared to shoot, and he did shoot, but
he swears his innocence of Intent
to do harm, and he has been ready at
all times to answer to the law for
the deed, because it was shocking to
him, and he was in Columbia on his
way to give himself up to the prison
authorities when he began to fleet
on the rigors of prison life, anu lib
erty looking sweet and fled.

ATLANTA PEOPLE EXCITED

Scientist Produces Strange New Liquid That Cures

Atlanta, Ga., (Special.)?This city
la wild with excitement over the won
derful cures of certain chronic dis
eases that are being treated with a
strange new liquid, recently intro
duced by an Indiana roan who claims
to have spent the best years of his
life and a large sum of money per
Scores of people who have suffe; >*i
for years, many of whom never ex
pected to see another well day, have
been completely restored to health
and news of countless wonderful
cures have spread like wild fire.
The drug store where the strange
liquid has been demonstrated is be
sieged with health-seekers from
morning till night and many Inter
esting stories are being told by per
sons who, having used the new treat
ment successfully, brought In some
sick friend or acquaintance to obtain
Among the many recent callers who
related thoir strange experiences
with the new treatment was Mr. Oli
ver W, De Wei re, who has lived at
840 Bank street, Atlanta, twenty-two
years and who for sixteen years has
been employed as blacksmith in the
Southern Railroad round house. Mr.
DeWeire said he had been afflicted I
with stomach trouble for about four .
? years and that five doctors and many
different medicines bad failed to ef
fect a cure. In speaking of bis strange
case he said: "I sometimes would
have no desire to eat at all. My di
gestion was poor and frequently I
would suffer intensely with pain in
my stomach. Gas would form in my
stomach and cause belching. I had (
dull, heavy headaches and was very I
nervous, irrtable and worrysome. At;
night, I could not sleep. I was weak ]
and felt all run down. I have now.
been using the new Root Juice treat
ment for about three weeks and feel
like a new man. I have gained six
pounds in weight and can eat almost
anything. I sleep fine, too, and get1
up feeling rested. This medicine has
certainly fixed me up in fine shape "
Another startling account was given
by a man who said he had come from
He gave his name as James D.
Rupp, his address as 324 Hoovel
street, and was very enthsulaatlc
over the results In his case. "1 have
been a sufferer from stomach, liver
and kidney trouble for seven years,"
ho said. "My food positively would
not digest and I was la constant mis- j
cry. I tried one remedy after another]
without relief. I heard so much.
about this new Root Juice treatment!
that 1 procured a bottle and began j
using It. To my great surprise be-1
fore I had finished it I found my
stomach, liver and kidney trouble]
fast disappearing. Now I can eat j
heartily and I sleep well. In fact, I
feel better every way."
Other well-known Atlanta people
who refJort equally phenomenal re
sults are Mr. R. W. Roberts, 16
Short street, who says that his wife
j was treated by twenty-two doctors
without results and that he first bot
tle of the juice treatment brought re
Mr. Oscar L. Seymour, living at
Weber and Orange streets, reports
that efter suffering from rheumatism,
swollen joints and pair for eight
years, three bottles of the juice
treatment put him on his feet, caused
tho soreness and swelling to dlsap-!
pear and made him feel fine.
So quickly and marvelously have
some severe cases been cured that!
stories have been circulated to the
effect that the medicine possesses
somo miraculous power, but this of
course is ridiculous and untrue.
Many of those who have used it,
however, say that the good effect Is
felt so qulcklv that it does seem al
most like a miracle.
One of the most startling cures
that has yet been brou- ' to light is
that of Mrs. E. G. MOOR.., ? prominent
and well-known lady who has issued
a signed statement giving the facts In
her case. In her statement Mrs.
Moore says, "I almost believe Root
Juice to be a gift from Heaven, for
I have Buffered seven years with
chronic Btomach and kidney trouble
and it has entirely cured me. When
ever I would eat meat or potatoes,
gas would form in my stomach and
this would press upon my heart so
heavily at times that 1 thought 1
would smother. 1 had dull heavy
headaches and pains across my back.
My hands and feet were always cold
and when getting up in the morning
I would be so dizzy 1 could not see.
1 was an invalid for four years and
although twelve doctors treated me
1 was not apparently benefited. At
times I was too weak to feed myself
and when 1 started taking Root .Hike
I weighed only ninety-eight pounds.
Within a week after taking my first
dose I found 1 could eat anything I
cared to without the slightest dis
comfort and that I was gaining rap
Idly in weight. AT'ter 1 took several
bottles of the medicine 1 was able
to do my own housework and have
not been troubled since in any way."
The case of Mrs. J. Schondell Is an
other example of the wonderful re
sults that the medicine is accomplish
ing for sick people. Mrs. Schondell
suffered for years with rheumatism
Which became so severe that she was
unable to move. The story of her
strange and remarkable recovery is
best told in her own words, and the
following is quoted from a signed
statement which she has issued for
"I suffered for years with a severe
attack of rheumatism. After Irving
numerous doctors without success I
made up my mind to see what the
Hoot Juice medicine would do Tor !)???.
Before taking tbe medicine 1 was on
able to move and had to be carried
from one place to another, but whoa
I had taken only two bottles I was
able to walk without assistance and
can now take care of my household
duties. Root Juice saved my life."
The effect of the Root Juice upon
persons suffering from stomach trou
ble is almost incredible. The appe
tite increases with the first few doses
and it is not uncommon to hear peo
ple say, "I bad not enjoyed a srpiare
meal for years before I tried it."
One lady who could scarcely eat
enough to keep her alive and who
suffered tortures from stomach trou
ble, says she can eat anything and
never suffers any more.
Cases of kidney and bladder trou
ble, too. in which the sufferers com
plained of backache, soreness in the
back, dark specks seeming to float
before the eyes, painful and frequent
urination, puffiness under the eyes and
other common symptoms, have yield

ing, healing, tonic action on the diges
tive and secretory organs is so rapid
that even rome of the worst cases
of indigestion, constipation and nerv
ousness, kidney trouble and rheuma
tism are perceptibly benefited from

Perhaps the best thing about it all
is that tbe great discovery can be
