JOHN BELTON O'NEALL JONES.
Johnnie Jones is dead. True.
brave, noble, courteous, generous,
hightoned. After nearly one week
from the time he reccived the fatal
shot, and showing romarkable
strength and fortitude, he died in
the office of Georgo S. Mower on
Saturday morning at three u-Clock.
It makes us sad to write it. for in his
death we feel that a true friend and
associate has been removed, and we
wish we were able to pay that tribute
to his memory which our heart feels.
and which he so justly merits. He
was just twenty-seven years old.
Just approaching the true vigor of
his young manhood. The death of
this young man is felt more keenly,
perhaps, by the editor of this paper,
than by most others outside of the
immediate family. Our acquaintance
with Johnnie began just ten years
ago. when as boys, we e::tered the
Sophomore class of Newberry Col
lege. For three years we labored
and studied together as classmates.
having all the ups and downs inci
dent to college life, until June 1880,
when our class was sent forth by the
college to tight the battle of life.
The other members of our class
sought other fields in which to try
their fortunes, Johnnie and the

Those who know the str'en gth of
the ties formed by college friends
and classmates can appreciate how
the death of this young man is felt
by the writer.
We also read law together and
.were admitted to the bar at the same
time, in December 1882. We al
ways found Johnnie .Tones a true
friend, generous and noble.
As a lawyer he gave promise of
becoming eminent in his pro
fession. His was :'mind of more
than ordinary ability, and his general
reading was very extended for one of
his years. He was the youngest
child of Maj. Lambert J. Jones and
very naturally the pride of his fond
p)arents. To them our sincerest and
tenderest sympathy is extended in
this hour of their bereavement.
Death at any time is sad, but for
a noble young life to be cut down in
full vigor of health and- strength
in the budding of young manhood
with the promise of future years. it
is doubly sad. It aiiords much con
solation to the fond parents to know
that he gave such evidence as to jus
tify them in the hope that all is well
with him now. and that he was pre
pared to meet the dread monster.
Col. D. Wyatt Aiken died at his
home in Cokesbury on yesterday
morning at half past seven o'clock.
He will be buried to-day at one o'clock

years. and a leading member of the

the ground some distance from the
place where the tire originaited and
Miller's Hotel and Russell's stables
were also on fire. but were saved.
The origin of the tire is said to
have been that some tinners were re

their implements. No insurance on

McGowan was insured in the London,

He was not insured for more thant a

j damaged. Everything is quiet at
this hour and the fire is under con

caught on fire : The dwelling-houses
of Dr. L. T. Hill. Thomas P. Quarles
and Mrs. Jordan. The wagon shops
of Samuel McI1wain & Co. and the
gin and mill of T. W. McMillan also
narrowly escaped being burned. The

1VASHINGTON, April 4.-On East
Capitol street. two squares from the
Capitol grounds, stands a block of
houses known as the Grant row.
The houses are spacious four-story
bricks, having rather showy fronts,
with brownstone trimmings. The
row, which covers the whole square
from 2d to 3d street, was erected
about 1873 by Capt. Albert Grant.
To carry on his extensive building
operations, Capt. Grant secured an
advance from the Phenix Mutual
Life Insurance Company, and out of
this transaction grew litigation which
has been pending a dozen years and
was finally settled to-day.
While the decision was being read
in the United States Supreme Court
against Capt. Grant and in favor of
the insurance company, this row was
discovered to be on fire. One of the
houses is occupied by Senator Blair,
of New Hampshire, who was Capt.
Grant's counsel in the litigation re
ferred to. The fire began in Blair's
house and the roof and upper story
was burned off Blairs house and the
house adjoining when the firemen
stopped it. The loss to the buildings
amount to several thousand dollars,
and to the contents of the houses by
fire and water considerably more.

The Ex-President of the Confederacy will Prob
bably Deliver an Address Before the William
Cm-ic.wo, April 4.-A special from
Kansas City, Mo., says:
"It is the custom of the literary
societies of the William Jewell
College, at Liberty, each year to
select a distinguished man to deliver
an address during the commencement
exercises, and at a joint meeting of
the societies, two weeks ago, a fresh
man named Roddy nominated Jeffer
soai Davis to deliver the address this
year, and read what he declared to be
a i'etter he had received from Mr.
Davis in reply to one he had written.
In the professed letter Mr. Davis
said, if invited to address the socie
ties he would gladly do so. Suspect
ing the genuineness of the letter, the
students appointed a committee to
write to the Ex-President of the Con
federacy, asking if he had received a
communication from Roddy, and if
he had replied, as stated. A few
days ago the committee heard from
MIr. Davis. He said he had received
no comnmunica.tion upon the subject
mentioned in the committee's letter,
and that he could not have written
the letter read by R~oddy because he
was not at the place at which it was
dlatea at the time. He adlded that
he would not sax- whether or not he
would (deliver a.n address at William
Jewell College until he was informed
whether such an act was desirable.
The students regard this as an inti
mation that MIr. Davis would favorbly
consider such an invitation, and at
the next regular meeting they will
invite him. Commencement exercises
will be held in June. As for young
Roddy, he will be' tried by the stu
dents upon charges of forgery and

Letter of Thanks from Maj. L. J. Jones.
R311. EDITOR:-Permit me, through
your paper (the only way I can reach
them all), to express to the good people
of Newberry, both town and county.
how much myself and family feel and
appreciate their spontaneous, beautiful,
touching sympathy for us in our sad,
heart-rending atfllction, can-ed by the
tragic death of our beloved Johnnie,
our Benjnin. It melted our hearts,
softened our feelings, and enabled us to
bear up tinder this sore bereavement
with more fortitude than we could other
wise have done. The very remembrance
of it now touches our hearts and melts
them to tears. It is sweet to know and
feel that we have the warm, gushing,
heart-felt sympathy of the whole coin
niunity in this our hour of trial. God
bless them for it.
What can I say that will sufliciently
convey our appreciation of the tender,
nut iring devotion of the young men, and
his l.lysici.ins, to our dear Johnnie from
the very moment he was wounded to
the breathing of his last breath? I have
not words suifficient to express how
much we appreciate their beautiful de
votion to hin, and their untiring efforts
to save hin from a premature grave. It
has impressed us with a feeling of grati
tude which will never, never, never
grow weaker while life lasts. It was,
indeed, beautiful to see the gentle, ten
der, watchful attention which they gave
him during the whole time of his sutler
ing, and especially during the dark,
melancholly hours of the night. I have
never before seen such pure, unselfish,
untiring devotion in all my life. May
God bless each and all of them, and may
they have at their bedside the same kind
of devoted attentions if they should ever
he so unfortunate as to need it.
After the sad end had come and our deat
baby-boy was no more, our hearts were
again tenderly and deeply touched by the
floral offerings of many beautiful wrcaths
made of fragrant flowers and evergreens,
by the deft hands of woman, guided by
the promptings which only the tender,
loving, sympathetic heart of woman is
capable. Our hearts were full before,
but this delieatc, loving, tender expres
sion of sympathy and kindliness on the
part of the ladies caused them to melt
and ilow out in tears.
May the choicest blessings of heaven
be showered down upon them, and may
their hearts never be lacerated and
ounded as ours have been.

In company with Capt. Pifer we
went dowin to Prosperity on last Sat
urday to attend the Teacher's Asso
ciation. As we expected there would
be, a large crowd ial a"embled at
the High School b)uildiu. the use of
which Prof. Scheet..: had kindly of
fered to tne teachers. All of the
lecturers were present e:cept Dr.
Holland who wa.s unable to ne there.
Capt. Pifer was called upon to open
the discussion of the subject which
had been assigned to Dr. Holland;
"School Discipline." He did so.
and expressed hi:; opinion that re
sorting to extreme measures with
children is seldom necessary and
should be avoided if possible.
Prof. Counts talked interestingly
on "Common Fraetiops." a subject
often so repulsive to the young stn
dent. It w1as during the diseussion
of this subject that the question
arose: Whether it i.. ever expedient
to teach an error in or<er to nake a
point intelligile to the pupil. Both
sides, the one for, and the other
against the teaching of an error to
accomplish an end spoke earnestly.
As to which was the victor we leave
it for others to say.
Miss Joe Langford read a well
prepared essay on tlie methods of
teaching spelling. It was generally
admitted that written spelling should
be practiced as far as practicable.
Prof. Scheetz lectured interesting
ly on U. S. History. The lecturer
said that he had been able to find
no book on the subject that fully
meets the demand; that they usually
give too much prominence to the
unessential points: that the study of
our institutions and the time of our
great men should be carefully at
tended to. After Prof. Scheetz lec
ture the association adjourned.
The meeting at Prosperity was a
good one both as to members present
and interest manifested. We think
that the plan of meeting at New
berry and Prosperity alternately is a
Most of the teachers whom we
met at Prosperity on Saturday re
port their schools in good condition.
But while they have this to say for
their school:, they complain about
the poor i>ay which they receive. If
the p)eop)le of our county only know
how little money some of our teach
ers have received since the opening
of the present session they would be
startled. To have good schools the
teachers must be better paid.
W\e do not announce the pro
grammie for the next association, as
we have not completed it. It will
appear in next week's issue.

Our oldest child, now six ye r, of age, when
an infant six months old, was attacked with
a viruknt, malignant tkin disease. All ordi
nary r, :nedies Jailing, we called our family
physice:, who attempted to cure it; but it
spread: w th almost incredible rapidity, until
the lois er portion of the little fellow's person
from the middle of his back down to his
Knees. was one solid, rash, ugly, painlul,
blotched and malicious. We had no restat
night. no potce by day. Finally, we were ad.
vised to try the CUTIcURA REMEDIES. The ef
fect was simply marvellous. In three or four
weeks a complete cure was wrought, leaving
the little fellow's pdrson as white and healthy
as though he had never been attacked. In
my opinion, your valuable remedies saved his
life, and to-day he is a strong, healthy child.

one year ago the CUTICUIRA and SOAP cured
a little girl in our house of the worst sore
head we ever saw, and the RESOLVENT and

of a sore leg, while the physicians are trying
to have it amputated. It will save his leg.
