Cosmopolitan Dramatic Company
Gave two performances at the opera

have seen it better rendered in some of

The second night the company pre
sented "The Black Flag." This is a

remarkably well. It deserved a better

Mr. Williaims didn't like.the idea of
receiving such a communication, as he
had always been a Democrat, and at
first was rather angry about it, but
when it was suggested that it was prob
ably intended for R. E. Williams, he
became reconciled and returned it to
the postof,iee and it was forwarded to
R. E. Williams.
. The letter was registered and stated
that the money could besent toColum

thinks it named several other places.

AN DIPRESSITF FAREWELL SERVICE.
Rev. W. C. Schaeffer Delivered HIi Final
Discourse Sunday Night-The Lutheran
Church Filled With a Sympathetic
Congregation-A T ouchin
It was a lovely Lord's Day evening
-the last October Sunday-and frnt,ru
every congregation, as well as outside
the churches, came the friends of the
departing minister to hear his last
words and bid hin an aflectionate
The sanctuary was radiant in the
spiritual grace, inspiration and oneness
of the hour, through all which a sense
of solemnity and a shade of sadness
pervaded. The chancel was graced
with floral offerings; at the sacred desk
sat Dr. G. W. Holland, President of
New berry College, and Dr. J. S. Cozby,
pastor of Aveleigi Presbyteria n ch urch,
and in tbe chancel were Rev. Profes
sors J. B. Fox and W. C. Sliglh.
A double quartette opened t he cxer
cises with a beautiful anthem, which
was followed by the very appropriate
hymn, read by Prof. Fox, "Joy to the
world." The invocation was then
wade by Dr. Holland, wtho likewise
read the lesson. The second hymn,
"Blest be the tie that binds," was an
nounced by Prof. Siigh.
Mr. Schaeifer's texts were: "I be
lieved, therefore have I spoken," Psalm
116:10; "We believe and therefore
speak," 2 Cor. 4:13-theme, The true
basis of religion. Mr. -chaeffer begant
his discourse with the apposite remark
that "the deimand that is made in
every kind of work is for a genuine
product." By way of illustration he
regretted the possibility of a false por
trait of Columbus on the die for the
5000,000 dollars that the governient
proposes to have pade in comrremora
tion of the discovery of America.
What is true in secular works and
ways is preetmineittly true in religion
the soul's experience should b e the
product of sincer; .. Our testimony
must proceed from conviction to be of
any real value.
In passing from a review of the prin
ciplcs which form the true basis of re
ligion, Mr. Schaeffer considerei the
perplexing variety of beliefs among
men-alien, hostile, false forms of the I
true; those begotten of ignorance and
superstition, etc.-and proved by them'
that the only religious result of value
comes from the deep conviction of the
soul. A profound knowledge of eternal
truth tends to humility and a nodesty
which retreats into the silence and the I
shadow of the Cross. - 1
The speaker emphasized the inter- I
play between belief and testimony.
The early fathers and confessors gave t
their testimony before tribunals that I
would commit them to the flantes.
The best products of the -ages were
from hearts and minds aflame wi:h
Columbus believed, therefore he em
barked, in the face of universal oppo
sition, out into the darkness of un
known seas. The day that he sailed
away by faith from Palos, and not the
day on which he planted the Crosa
upon the strand of the New World, i
should be made famous in song and
Tennyson, England's sweet singer,
who now sleeps in the silence of the t
great cathedral, in the seclusion and
retirement of his beautiful life caught I
the fire of celestial thought and voiced
it in immortal song.
The paternal character of God and
the redeeming work of the Son of Man
were happily touched upon-the Cross
of Christ was the exemplification of]
Mr. Schaeff'er con trasted the oppo
site beliefs of the brilliant Frenchman,
Renan, and that of the great apo.stle to3
the Gentiles. The former a!Rirmed, in
the hour and article of death, "We
perish, we disappear, but the march ofC
time goes on forever," while he of the
Pauline faith triumphantly declared,
"I have fought a good fight, I have
finished my course, I have kept the
faith: henceforth there is laid up for me I
a crown of righteousness, which the
Lord, the righteous Judge, shall give
me at that day."
In concluding, Mr. Schaeffer spoke
of the cardinal doctrines of the Church's
exaltation and the joys of the true be
liever; that our Father in heaven had
made this beautiful world for our good
and created us for his own glory; had
made wonderful provision for our
pleasurable enjoyment - and happi
ness. The speaker contrasted these
with the emptiness-the utter empti
ness-of the life into which no celestial
light enters, no faith illumes and no
prayer and love sanctify. He urged his
congregation and hearers to make the
text their individual sentiment: "IJ be
lieve, therefore have I spoken." ]
At the close of the sermon, which
was an excellent one in every particu
lar, Mr.. Schaeffer made brief mention
of his five years' ministerial work in
the Newnerz'y pastorate-of the general
courtesy and cousideration always
shown him, and which he deeply ap
preciated and would ever reciprocate.
His words were tenderly .spoken in a
subdued tone as he committed them to
the protection of the Holy Trinity,
and prayed that God would be with
them until such time as in his provi
dence they might meet again.
D.Czybegged a few moments'
prayer, in which he said that he could
not sever the ties that bound him to
his brother without a word or two of
regret at parting. His words were
tender and touching--a pleasing inci
dent of the occasion.
The last hymn, given out by the pas
tor, was sung with sweet and happy
Mr. Schaeffer pronouncedl the bene
diction, and for the first time during
the trying ordeal betrayed the emo
tions that filled his heart. It was the
fitting close to a sacred and beautiful
THE MORNING SERVICE. t
As the evening service was the finalC
farewell of the retiring pastor to those
of his own people possibly hindered
from the morning service, as well to(
the community at large-it being a
special service--we have made it the
fuller of the two.4
Mr. Schaffer selected his text from
2 Cor. 13:.11. "Finally, brethren, fare
well," etc. In this very earnest and
sympathetic discourse, in which the I
pastor's mind naturally reverted to the
varying scenes and incidents of the has- I
ten ing years-the weeks, months anda
seasons in which be broke the bread of
life to hungering hearts, cheered the
dispirited, and offered consolation to
the sorrowing, were all grouped into
the bour before him. No wonder the
bright picture with its somnbre shadow
brought the tear of relief !
In a brief review of his work Ms. S.
said that S9 members were added to the.
church. Collections by the congrega- 1
tion, $7,201.75; benevolence, .$901.6
He thanked the congregation for its
devotion to him; the officers of the
Dhurch for their sympathy and sup- s
port; the faculty of the college for its
grae=ous helpfulness, and the students t
for their considerate attention and re
sponses. And to the choir and its faith
rul, punctual and efficient leader, Mrs.
Peter Robertson, he expressed kind
words of appreciation.
Knowing that this day he would pos
tibly speak for the last time to some,
e prayed heaven's choicest blessing
Ipotn all. He would fain clasp about
hem a necklace of God's most urecious
)romJises. "Finally, brethren, farewell.
Be perfected; be comforted; be of the
ame mind; live in peace: and the God 2
>f love and peace shall be with you."

A SIHIEWWD BURGLAR CAPTURED.
Somne Goni Work by Detective Hall, of Co
!nnbia-Captured at Newberry.
Officer Hall has just done an admira
rable piece of detective work. He was
at Alston on Friday Iookin after a
railroad case upon which he had been
detailed, when he got on the track of
Noah Seurry' the notorious negro burg
lar and robber,who robbed liimnaugh's
store of about S.m2 worth of clothing,
made a heavy haul from the Murray
Drug Company, got numerous articles
from other parties, and made good his
escape some months ago.
Mr. Hall secured a buggy and drove
to N'wberry and as Scurry stepped off
the dow:n train, having come from Sil
ver Strect. the officer tapped him on
the shoulder and bagged his game. He
was locked up in Newberry, and Hall
then went to Silver Street and recov
ered all the plunder where the rascal
had hiddeu it away.
Scurry, since his escapades here, has
robbed parties in Charleston of $183, and
was on the Augusta chain gang, from
which be escaped.
Olicer Hall arrived in t: e city last
night with the man, and gets the re
wards ofi:red tor his capture.-The
State, October 30.
Detective Hogan, of Charleston ar
rived in the city last night. He has for
some time been on trail of Noah Scur
ry, the negro criminal who was cap- I
tured by Policeman Hall in Newberry :
on Saturday. Scurry robbed Sullivan's
restaurant, in Charleston, of $185. He i
is wanted here on several charges of
robbery, but in viewof thefactthat the
court meets there in November, Chief
Radelifte has consented to let Mr. Mor
ganu take Scurry to Charleston. If con
victed he will be tried here immediate
ly upon serving his sentence in the
penitentiary. If acquitted he will be
returned here for trial. Tre detective
described him as an unusually clever
criniinal.-The State, October 31.
Detective Hall made close connection
last Friday at Newberry with the down
passenger train from Greenville. Just
as Mr. Hall got on the platform Scurry
got off the train, and the nippers were
placed upon him.
Mr. Ha!i found on him a double case
silver watch with the letters "G. C."
on one side. If any one has lost such a
watch he can regain the same by writ
ing to Mr. C. E. Hall, at Columbia. It
would do for Grover Cleveland, but
