'-What's got into the women:"
saii a frienA to me the other day as
I sttod gazing at that marvellous
steeple on top of the Tribune office
where sits the youthful successor of
Horace Gree!ey, looking down upon
a na'ighty world. What do ycu
mean? I said. Why, havn't von ob
served. he said, that a number of
women have suddenly disapeared of
late and of wholm no c tie has been
discovered? and it suddenly occr
red to me that I had It is some
years since I had occasion to refer
to this very subject but at that time
it was the disapearance of meu. and
it is not until you go to the police
headquarters that you find out how
frequent the disapearances are.
It seems to be a very terrible
thing to have a man or woman sud
denly blctted out of existence. yet
a n~umber of such cases have
taken place with:n the past few
weeks. To refer to the past: A
gentleman well known on the Stock
Exchange started for home one day
just after the adjournment of the
Stock Board. IIe walked up Broad
way with a friend as far as St
Paul's church. there he stopped and
conversed a few moments, then
crossed Broadway to go down Ful
ton street on his way to his home
in Brooklyn, and that was the last
that was ever seen or known of him
as far as this earth was concerned.
le was a man past middle age, of
strictly temperate habits, of ample
fortune, with a happy home, a lov
ing wife and affectionate children;
his business relations were of the
best, all his accounts were square,
his health was good, no signs of in
sanity were ever seen in any of his
family, and yet the man was utterly
blotted out from the face of the
earth and has never been heard of
fr om that day to this. A still more
remarkable case occurred in Brook
lyn in the case of a well known ar
tist. He was sitting down in his
studio just at evening, awaiting his
supper. He sat there in his
sr1oking cap, dressing gown and
slippers. A ring came at the door
bell; it was the news carrier with
the "Brooklynt Eagle." His wife
asked him to go down to the door
for the paper; he went. and no mor
tal eyes, as far as we know, have
ever seen him from thlat hour to the
present. T1'he list is a long one,
and as long as it was confined ex
clusively to men it was bad enough,
but now the case is altered, we have
nt lost a man in a month that we
could not reasonably account for.
There was either, a woman missing
about the same ..me or he had been
speculating in Wall street with
somebody else's money, or he was
short of hi employer's fu.nds. But
there is not one of the ladies who
has disapeared for the past few
weeks who was not of the highest
respectability, and like Cesar's
wife above suspicion. One of them,
an unmarried woman of thirt y, an
only daughter and one of the most
estimable ladies in Brooklyn-hon
ored, respected and worthy of it
who had everything in thi-s world
to make her happy, and she went
out of her home early the other
morning and has never been seen
since. Her parents have been al
most distracted for weeks past;
they have the sincerest sympathy
of the entire community; they feel
that it would be a relief if they even
knew that she was dead.
Last week a lady by the name of
Hart disappeared and she has not
been heard from.
One of the saddest cases was the
mother of Little Kleina Lena that
used to play with Joe Emmet in
"Fritz in Ireland." She was a
sweet, cunning little creature and
she died during the performance of
the piece. The child was the idol
of her mother and her death so
preyed upon her mother that her
reason fled and last week she wan
dered away from her home but was
fortunately discovered by friends
after an absence of several days.
Whenever she was left alone she
would get out little Kleina Lena's
little dresses and shoes and weep
over them by the hour, begging her
little lost one by endearing names
to come back to her. At .last her
reason failed and her ontly desire
seemed to be to follow the little an.
el who had gone before.
SThe news of John McCullough's
fatal malady th,ough not altogether
unexpected, was felt severely in
Naw York where he is well known,
and has hosts of friends It is a
mistake to suppose that John Mc
Cullough was ever a dissipated
n,n, and being perfectly acquain
ted with his professional life for
twenty years I risk nothing in say
ing that there is not one man in a
thousand exposed as he has been
to all sorts of temptation from boy
hood who has led as abstemi-us
and correct a life. People who
look at the p-'t,,rinance of a trag.
e,y and who see the desperate en
ergv required to carry the piece to
its final climax. little think that it
is sa;.ping the life of the man who
d, iLhts them. When the piece is
ened his nerves are all unstrung.

Mr. Beecher's position in the
coining election is exciting the live
liest attention in the City of Brook
lyn where he has reigned so long
without a rival. The position lie
has assumed may not disrupt Ply
mouth Church. It is not expected
that the trustees will reduce his
$25,000 salary. but it is equally cer
tain that many staunch friends who
who stood by him in the bitterest
trial of his life, have bid him a per
manent. good bye. It is intimated
by many w.io know him that his ad
vanced age. his terrible trials nd
the herculean labors that he I as
imposed upon himself, have brou .ht

the great Plymouth pastor who I as
breasted the fierce storms of over
seventy winters is at last about to
succumb to the inevitable.
Some of his former friends deem
this a mercful construction of his
present conluct, while many others
right within the pale of the Con
gregational church have doubted his
soundness. Dr. Storrs, the honored
pastor of the Church of the Pil
grins and one of the most eloquent
divines in V:ie world, has not spoken
to Mr. B3eecher for many years and
has refused to take part in any re
ligious conference with which Mr.
Beecher was connected. Mr. Bye
cher is no longer in the position
that he was at the time of his trial;

and had to mortgage his house for
a few thousand dollars he loaned
to Theodore T lion. To-day he is

lectures, weddings, &c , have been
enormous; his lectures alone fre

it is understood that Mrs. Beechier
has assum d the control of the fi
nancial department and the result
is a healthier condition of the bank
account than when the Rev. Henry
Ward man,.ed them himself. But
his increased wealth has not added
to his popularity, and there has not
been a day in forty years in Brook
lyn where tLe public faith was so
shaken in ltim as it is to-day. W ho

THE LUTHERAN SUIT.
MESSRS EDIToRS: In 1753 or 4,
one hundred and thirty years ago,
George III, King of England,
granted to John Adam Epting and
Christian Dickert-the former, a
Lutheran, and the latter a Presby
terian-one hundred acres of land,
then Granville, now Lexington Co.,
S. C. According to tradition. in
1756. these adventurous gentlemen
assisted by the few settlers, all Ger
man immigrants, built a small log
house for the purpose of worship
ping God a. cording to the Presby
terian and Lptheran creeds, and
named it St. John's church. The
Presbyterians were fe .v in number,
and found great difficulty in pro
curing the services of one of their
own ministers to occupy the pulpit
in their humble log gabin Perhaps
on account of their profound "The
ological learning," their services
were required to supply the churches
in the few towns and cities then
in S. C: hence, Faber, Hoheimer,
Houser, Wallorn and others, all
Lutherans, were the principal mm
isters, who had the pastoral charge
of the members of St. John's
church, until about 1824. Then
Jacob Mouser, a Lutheran minis
ter, who hailed from N. C., a man
of very limited education; bub with
al a man of some practical "Theo
logical knowledge, who possessed
ample eligious qualities to edify
his congregation in that day.
I remember well, the first sermon
I ever heard was preached by the
Rev. Jacob Mouser, at St. John's
church in 1832, when I was a mere
In 1826 the descendants of these
old German settlers, built a new
house for worship, which was also
named St. John's Church. The
name of St. John's will not surprise
any one who is familiar with some
of the old settlers of the Dutch
Fork. I knew a very elegant old
man who was so passionately fond
of the name John, that he named
all of his sons John, which were
seven in number, John, John Jacob,
,John George. John Friderick, &c.
About the time, when nearly all
of the vacant land had been taken
up. some of the members of St.
John's Church suspecting that the
Eptings and Dickerts, might at
some future time asseit a claim to
the church land under the title se
cured by their ancestors, surveyed
it in the night, and cleared it out of
the Land Office, as it was called,
and claimed it as vacant land,
which however, was as worthless as
the paper it was written on,as there
were no laws in S. C. confiscating
the King's grant, and the King's
title had long before been regis
tered in the Land Office at Colum
bia, S. C.
In 1831 or 32, the Rev. Godfrey
Dreher was called to the pastoral
charge of St. John's Church, who
I believe at that time was pres
ident of the Lutheran Synod of
S. C. This change created dissat
isfaction with some of the members
who preferred the Rev. Mouser..
The objection against the Rev.
Godfrey Dreher was that he preach
ed the doctrine that Christ was ac
tually spiritually present in the eu
charist, while the Mouser party was
led by the Rev. John C. Hope, who
had just entered clerical life,
just from Gettysburg Theological
Seminary, Penn., with some talent
as a pulpit orator, who in 1852
gave up the mfinistry, and chose po
litical life, which on account of his
sensual desires was more appro
priate,and who gained some notorie
ty as a legislator,being always on the
side of economy, and low taxes.
He was popular with the people of
Lexington County, and represented
them in both Houses of the Legis
lature for a number of years. He
believed or rather preached that
the bread and wine was only an
emblem of the body and blood of
Christ, and that He was in no wise
present at His own established
fear. This condition of affairs
tended to widen the breach between
the followers of the two factions,
and continued with hostile feelings
between the parties until 1837,
when the Rev. Godfrey Dreher
withdrew from the S. C. Lutheran
Synod and attached himself to the
Tenn. Synod. I think that, how
ever, the S. C. Synod notwith
standing his withdrawal preferred
charges, and ordered his expulsion
from their Synod.
Imn withdrawing from St. John's
Church, the Rev. Dreher drew

third of the members; however, not
like Satan, who withdrewv with his
tail one third of the stars from
Heaven, when his Satanic majesty
was cast down, but by his affa
ble manners, and gentle voice teach
ing them the fundamental princi
ples of Christianity taught by four
fifths of the most learned Protes
tant Theologians at the present
time, and unaniinously by the
Church of Rome, who believe that
Christ is personally present at the
supper, and is in the bread and
The Dreher party was equally as
intelligent, and as zealously at
tached to their leader as the South
Carolina Synodical party was to
their leader, who had a preacher
among them who preached that
there were infants in hell not more
than a spau long. I think however,
that if ignorance ever gets to be
bliss some of the members otf botli
parties of St. John's Church in the
Dutch Fork will be exceedingly
When the Rev. Godfrey Dreher
withdrew from the S. C. Synod, his
followers were in possession of
the key tn the chnrch, and the
title to the church land Every
effort was made by the S. C. Synod
ical party notwi:hstanding they
were in full possession of the
- moonshine vacant land title," to
get the key to the church and
the title to the land. Both the
key and title were demanded in
my presence when a youth. This
unsettled and unsatisfactory state
of affairs continued for three or
four years. The two parties were
arrayed against each other. which
finally culminated in a doctrinal
discussion, held publicly at St.
John's Church, between the Rev
erends Miller and Brown, mein
hers of the Tununesee sYnod, and
Reverends Hope and lierley of the
S. C. Synod. When I as a b.-liever
in Christi nity look lack, and x.
amine into the merits of the trouble
at St. .John's Church, I feel that the
levil has always had his emisa
ries among that people; an11d they
make no effort to r sist him or he
The Dreher party was called
"Henkellites," and the other "H p
ites," or "Soap-tails.'' I remem
bar well, in my boy days, how
I dreaded to meet some of the
older men, who were sutire to ask
me, if I was a "Henkellite' or a
"Soap-tail." Finally through the
influence of Geo. Eicheiberger, who
was an earnest advocate of peace,

A MECHANICAL MONSTROSITY.
Passing Mr. J. W. Boozer's shop
one day last week, I observed a
curiously constructed apparatus
near the shop, by the side of the
road. I had never seen just such a
contrivance and thought that possi
bly it might be ou, of Mason's Cot
ton Harvesters come to test its
capacity in the stone hills. But
upon closer approach, I concluded
that I was mistaken. The idea now
occurred to me that it might be a
fool harvester, and I executed a
rearward movement with rather
more haste than dignity,and located
myself in a fence-corner, in a briar
patch, on the opposite side of the
road and took up the position of
"dc-fence." Upon recovering my
bearing. I reflected that I had not
heard of such a machine in the
country, and knowing no road
where it could.travel without crea
ting great consternation and alarm,
I knew it could not be such an
affair unless it had dropped down
from heaven. Trhis, however, I
finally concluded could not have
been the case, for I saw it had not
gathered in Mr. Boozer, the pro
prietor of the shop. So I thought
I might at least venture a recon
noisance. Emerging from my de
fensive position, somewhat scratch
ed, but still curious, I asked Mr.
Boozer if the thing would bite. He
replied that he thought it was harnm
less when at rest, but could not
vouch for it when in motion. I
now examined it as best I could
in my excited state. The hinder
part somewhat resembled a wagon
in that it had two wheels. The fore
part I could not cipher out. It had
somewhat the appearance of a
~hreshing machine, a sewing ma
chine, a saw-mill and an aligator.
Whether one of these or all four I
could not make out. Upon inquir
ing of Mr Boozer what it was, I
was informed that it was a mechan
ical monstrosity, and fearing the
affair might start off, I left for
THlE LATE JUDGE GLOVER.
South Carolina never had a son
who loved better his native State,
and in the dark days of her mis
fortunes she had no truer sympa
thizer. Judge Glover was a:ways
noted for his scrupulous honesty in
all the affairs of life and for his
urbanity of manners, He was gen
erous, entertained at his home ele
gantly, and in. fact he always car
ried out the old South Carolina
idea of hospitality. In 1879 he
was appointed Master for Orange
burg County, and filled that posi
tion not only with satisfaction to
the Bar but with distinguishad abil
ity, illustrating his high conception
of duty and his love o! the law
which he made the ruling passion
of his life. Of Judge Glover it can,
with as much truth as of any mnan
that ever lived, be said, that he
ww' not only a jurist but a patriot.

was sung as a hymn not long since :

TheNEWBERRYHERALD AND NEWS
has reached our sanctum with its new
heading. We cannot say that we ad

port from the town and county. New

weekly journals ii the St:t. If our
esteemed contemporary will pardon
the suggestion, we would say that we
concur with the Press and Banner in
thinking that NEWS-HERALD would
have been : more appropriate ai:d sig

not very pretty but the paper is first
class de-pite its "ugly mug."-Sumter
Watchman and Soutdhron.
It strikes us very forcibly that our
bn-thren of the press generally do
not take to our new heading. Some
like it and some don't. The report of
the majority is against us. We there
fore rise to a question of privilege.
Not to a point of order, because it
wouldn't be well taken, the liberty of
the press being respected. In quoting
the remarks, good, bad and indifferent,
of our friends (we don't copy compli
ment"ry notices only) we hope our
readers won't think that we are "run
ning our head in the ground." We
just must say something or our head
will burst. It has been knocked and
"banged" by our exchanges until it
really aches. It would be too painful
to bear were it not for the few sooth
ing pats it receives. Bat it has been
spared the harde=t blow-it hasn't yet
been called a dude's head. Enough
though has been s:id about it to make
it feel sick ; it seems that it neeas the
attention of Dr. Shriner or Dr. Smith.
Won't some of the P. D.'s (Doctors of
the Press) now prescribe for it? For
the past month or two it has floated
on the breezes "from where the snow
capped mountains kiss the northern
horizon to where old ocean ripples o'er
the southern shores" that the NEWS
AND HERALD has a new head which
is unbecoming, although its pulse is
acknowledged to be all right. Our
hea,!-light will continue to shine. It
is like the torch of truth, the more it's
shook the more it shines. Our ex
changes knock it into pi and try to ex
tinguish it in the sea of journalism.
They shake their gory locks at it, but
like Bancho's ghost it will not [stay]
down. They crush it, but It rises again
"to assert the majesty of Its suprema
cy." In the rosebud garden of the
newspaper kingdom it may yet linger
'like the last rose of summer,left bloom
ing alone, while its lovely companions
are faded and gone." In conclusion,
gentlemen of the press of South Caro
lina, we are sorry our head doesn't
suit you, and had we known that It
would have brought down such a vol
ley of hot shot from your batteries
on its devoted lines, we would certain
ly have asked for an extra meeting of
the State Press Association and selec
ted a head by a unanimous vote.

THE STATE SUPREME COURT.
SYNOPSIS OF BECENT JUDICIAL DECI,
Partnership-Action against Partneri
Maybin. Survivor. vs. Moorman, Executor
During the existence of a mercantile
partnership, R. Moorman, one of the
concern, being a subscriber for ten
shares in the Bank of Newberry, charg
ed himself with $1,000, drawn from the
firm and used by him in paying for the
stock, which stock stood afterwards on
the books of the bank as his individual
property. The partnership proved in
solvent, and the plaintiff, as survivor
of the firm, Instituted this action
against the execntor of the said Moor
man. In which he prayed that stock and
dividends accrued thereon be adjudged
the property of the firm and be turned
over to the plaintiff as survivor there
of. The action is in substance an ac
tion for the recovery of personal prop
erty, and the right of action must
stand or fall upon the question of title,
legal or equitable, ini the plaintiff.
The Supreme Court decides: That
as to the legal title, the plaintiff has
no standing. Each partner can bind
the firm within the scope of the part
nership. In the absence of fraud or
conspiracy, each can draw from the
common till-for their own and individ.
ual purposes, charging themselves at
the same time with the amount so
drawn. They can pay their Individual
debts by giving credit to their creditor
on a claim due by him to the concern,
when bona fide done. Survivors of
