J. S. CozaY.
At the Methodist Church.
Last Sunday morning, Rev. Mr.
ightman, the minister appointed to
;ucceed Rev. Mr. Stokes, delivered a
;oughtful discourse from the text:
'Be ye filled with the Holy Ghost,"
tc. Mr. Wightman said that the
harge was mandatory, imperative and
ibsolutely necessary to a complete
.hristian experience. As the divine
uossibilities are not limited his desire
s that his people shall "lift the latch
nd force the way" in the penetralia of
:ruth and get within the "inner circle"
5f those who surround the "mystical
Dody of Christ," obtaining thereby a
rnost full, refined and satisfying realiza
tion of Christian experiences.
In this connection we wish to allude
.o a thought in Rev. Mr. Stokes's fare
well to his people. His sermon was
Dased upon the text, "Quench not the
spirit," etc., and was enforced by ap
posite illustrations appropriate to the
ccasion. Mr. Stokes expressed the
hope that whatever else might be for
yotten of his sermon his hearers would
remember the command, "Quench not
Did not Mr. Wightman happily take
Lip the thread by urging that they be
"filled with the Spirit"?.
Mr. Stokes, by his sweet persuasive
ess, broke up the fallow ground upon
which the gentle dews of divine.grace
have fallen; may it not be hoped that
the rugged ploughshare be now driven
by the heroic hand of the present
pastor until the windows of heaven are
>pened for the downpour of a pentecos
al shower of heaven's choiecest bless
Mr. Wightman's sermcn was a very
carnest call to practical, personal work
an the part of the laity, and an appeal
that all false barriers of restraint be
broken down in order that they no
Longer hinder the constraining influen
es of the Holy Spirit.**
On Tuesday, January 8th, long before
the ringing of the bell, children, (with
liberal sprinkling of those of larger
growth) could be seen, with expectant
faces, wending their way to Thompson
Street Church. Asking a "little trot''
what the commotion meant, I was told,
"Why, don't you know ? Its treat day
for our "Band of Hope." Curiosity
prompted me to investigate the matter.
So I joined the constantly increasing
crowd, and soon found myself at the
place of meeting, and Oh, my stars !
Such an array of children, from one
year of age up to ninety. A large ban
ner with the letters WV. C. T. U. and B.
of H. was suspended above the pulpit.
The chandeliers and organ were pro
fusely trimmed with white ribbons,
and immense white japonicas. On a
large table in front of the pulpit were
numberless neat looking packages, and
bags, all colors of the rainbow, were
stowed away in every available place.
At 3.30 the president called the meet
ing to order, and Rev. J. S. Cozby led
in prayer. An impromptu choir sang
a ringing prohibition song, after which
all joined in reading a p)ortion of Scrip
ture. Twelve little girls, each repre
senting a month in the year, came for
ward and wished the assembled crowd
a "Happy and prosperous New Year."
The year 1889 was called for, and four
children dressed in costumes represent
ing Spring, Summer, Autumn and
Winter came forward and
"Advised the crow d to take no wvine,
In eighteen hundred and eightf-nine."
In response to a call from the Presi
dent Rev. J. S. Cozby spoke a few well
chosen words of pleasant greeting to
the children. A fter singing "Bringing
in the Sheaves," in which the whole
congregation joined, the announcement
was made that the time had arrived for
the distribution of the presents, and
then, how the children's eyes sparkled!
Each child received a handsome book
and a bag of fruits, candy, etc. 20
books and bags were distributed. After
the distribution of presents the bene
diction wa pronounced and the little
folks went home to wait for the Tem
perance Treat of 1890. *

The >Iurderer of Ike Boozer.
Douglas Coleman, who is now in jail,
is sentenced to be hanged to-morrow.
Coleman is a stout negro about 50 or 60
years old, and is considered rather
weak, mentally. A petition is being
circulated this week to get the Govern
or to commute his sentence to life im
prisonment in the penitentiary. The
petition is numerously signed and it is
thought the Governor will grant it. It
has been a long time since we have had
an execution in Newberry.
Coleman is convicted of the murder
of Ike Boozer, which was committed
in this county, on the 28th January of
last year, in the house of Patience
Chalmers. Boozer was found dead in
the woods, having been struck in the
head with some blunt instrument from I
the effects of which he died. Upon the
first investigation of the case, two wo
men were arrested and lodged in jail a
charged with the murder. Patience
Chalmers, one of these, in whose house z
the murder took place, said Ike Boozer a
and Douglas Coleman had a quarrel a
and Coleman killed him with an axe.
Coleman was thereupon arrested, tried
and convicted, and sentenced to hang r
on Friday, January 11, '89.
