FOUGHT AT PEAK
One Negro Is Killed and Another
Wounded?White Men Suffer In
Lexington, Nov. 23.?The little town
of Peak In the Dutch Fork was the
scene of a bloody battle last, night
about 7:30 o'clock, when an effort
was made by a number of citizens to
arrest two negroes. who, it was
thought, held up P, 13. Kllisor. an
aged and highly respected farmer on
the public highway a few miles from
Prosperity, in Newberry county, yes
As a result of the battle one nemo
is dead and two white men are Buf
fering from pistol shot wounds re
ceived when the negroes opened lire
on their would-be captors, The second
negro is probably floating in the
water of Broad river, as he was
traved along a ditch after the firing
to the river's hank, where all signs
of the trail was lost by the hounds
that were placed on his track soon
after the shooting. That he was
wounded is evidenced by the fact that
he fell to his knees at the second or
Held l'p in ltoad.
About 1 o'clock yesterday after
noon P. B Elllsor was returning from
Prosperity alone in his buggy when
he was accosted by two negroes, who
asked the white man for a chew of
tObaCCO. When the farmer stopped
the negroes drew their pistols, one
approaching from each Bide of the
buggy, and demanded that the white
man give up his cash. At the point of
the pistol Mr. Elllsor was forced to'
turn over about $2.">. all the money
that he had in his possession. After
rpbbing Mr. Elllsor the negroes forced
him to leave the buggy and the two
highwaymen took possession of the
buggy and horse and drove off down
the road. The negroes drove the ani
mal to a point near Pomaria, it is
said, when the deserted the horse
and buggy, leaving it beside the road
way, where it was later found.
The Alarm Sounded,
Mr. Elllsor gave the alarm as soon
as possible and the officers at New
berry were notified. The citizens of
Peak were notified of the occurrence
and were asked to he on the lookout
I for the negroes. About 7:30 o'clock
an engine pulled up to the depot, and
those who were on the watch for
the suspects noticed two nogt'OCS rid
ing on the tender. The negroes were
accosted, and it is said opened fir;1 on
the party. .1. T. Gallagher, foreman of
construction gang of the Southern
railway, was the first to receive a
shot from the negroes, a hall having
pierced his shoulder, lodging in the
neck, near the jugular vein. James E.
Entlng, a farmer, received a bullet in
the left arm When the negroes open
ed, fire on the party of citizens the
shots were returned.
Escaped to 1th or.
One of the negroes ran toward the
river and was seen to fall to his
knees, the other ran through the
streets of Peak with his pistol in his
hand and was fired on by his pur
suers. The negro ran for a short dis
tance, when he fell to the ground as
he attempted to cross a ditch, a pistol
ball having entered his hip, passing
through the body and came out in the
abdomen. He was lodged In the guard
house, where he was kept until 10
o'clock this morning, when he died.
Negro Denied Guilt.
The injured negro was interviewed
by the sheriff, and gave his name as
Richard Sparks and his home as
Florence. He said that his compan
ion's name was John Brown. To the
last Sparks denied that he and Brown
had held up the white man. Mr. Klli
sor, however, identified the dead negro
as being one of his assailants.
Magistrate J. U. Frick of Chapin
held an Inquest over :hc dead body of
the negro this afternoon, the jury
bringing in a verdict that the negro
came ?o his death h> gunshot wounds
at the hands of unknown parties.?

WHAT THANKSGIVING MEANS.
It has boon said that Thanksgiving
is the one holiday that combines re
ligion ami patriotism. Yet in the com
mon observance of It there Is fre
quently very little of either It Is too
often reduced to a feast and nothing
Why should not the idea of offering
thanks for some great national bless
ing during each year be made more
prominent, especially in giving the
meaning of the day to the children'?
In every years there Is some occurrence,
of this sort. <tf course the old idea
was to irive thanks for bountiful crops
and national prosperity. Tins is good,
but why not add to It thanks for spe
cial blessings both to individuals and
to the nation ?
THOUGHTS FOR THOSE
WHO GIVE THANKS.
While yon are about the pleasant
duty of giving thanks remember?
The heavy laden.
Upon the depth and the character of
the remembrance will largely depend
the acceptability of your thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving day Is peculiarly an
American Institution, but the Cana
dians have taken .up the custom. With
them the date la usually the last Mon
day of October, po"sihly because their
winter conies earlier than with us.
They place the festival on Monday. In.
stend of Thursday, on the theory that
a day taken out of the middle of the
week breaks up the week; nlso that It
does not allow time to travel to family
reunions. This year the Canadian
Thanksgiving day fell upon Monday.
THE JEWISH THANKSGIVING.
The day In the Jewish calendar that
mostly corresponds with our American
Thanksgiving is that of Purlin, which
is In commemoration of the saving of
the Jews lit Persia from Hainan, men
tinned in the book of Esther. The fes
tival falls on the 14th of the Jewish
month Adar. This usually places it in
March, but on account of the extra
month thrown Into Jewish leap years
the date varies. Purim Is a day of
thanksgiving with the Hebrews. It Is
a day of great general rejoicing and re
ligious observance. It Is nlso the oc
casion for family reunions and for giv
ing presents to relatives nnd friends.

HOW CHRONIC COUGHS
Are Being Cured by Vinol.
Did you ever cough for a month?
Then Just think how distressing It
must be to have a cough hang on for
Mrs. Maria Primrose, of 87 Newell
Street, Prooklyn, N. Y., says: "I had
a very heavy cold whlck settled into
a chronic cough, which kept me
awake nights for fully three month.s,
nnd felt tired all the time because my
rest was broken so much. The effect
of taking your cod liver and Iron rem
edy, Vlnol, is that my cough Is gone.
I can now get a good night's rest, and
I feel much stronger in every way."
It Is the combined action of tho
medicinal elemonts, cods' livers, aided
by tho blood-making and strength
creating properties of tonic iron which
makes Vlnol so ofTlelent In curing
chronic coughs, colds and bronchitis
?at tho same tlmo building up tho
weakened, run-down system.
Try a bottle of Vlnol, with tho un
derstanding that your money will
bo returned If It does not help you.
