- The Methodists.
The Newberry Methodists have
bought from Mrs. Greneker her lot
adjoining their property. They now
ownl the whole square and one of the
nicest church lots in the town. They
will have to abandon their former idea
of building a $6,000 wooden church.
On such a lot as they now have they
should build a handsome brick church
-and this we hope to see them do,
They are amply able, and we have
no doubt they will now build an
elegant brick church edifice. Trhe
Herald and News is anxious, to - see
some new church buildings in New
b>erry, but when we build we should
make a decided improvement upon
the buildings we now have.

The Columbia Register, in a series of
articles on Clemson College, published
sketches of the corps of professors,
from which we clip tho following:
Prof. C. W. Welch is a native of New
berry County in this State. In his
early life up to 1875 he lived on a farm
and enjoyed such school facilities as
were oXered in the public schools of
that time. He prepired for college un
der Prof. D. B. Busby. He entered
Newberry College In 1875and graduated
from that institution in 1879, with first
honors. His first experience as a teach
er was as principal of the Prosperity
High School, which he organized and
conducted for two -years. The New
berry College Trustees elected him to
thechairof mathematics. Heremained
there five years.
In August, 1886, he was offered a po
sition in -the public schools of Texas
and accepted. A year later he accepted
the principalship of the Houston high
school. It was due to his efforts that
the cityof Houston made liberal appro
priations for the establishment of a
physical laboratory in this high school.
When the physical laboratory of Clem
son is supplied with the necessary ap
paratus it will be the fourth equipment
that Professor Welch has purchased.
He is an enthusiastic student of science
and believes it to be one of the great
forces that will make for the betterment
of the human race.
Professor Welch has always shown a
lively interest in public schools and has
often assisted in the holding of teachers'
institutes in the various counties in
this State. He is 35 years of age and
enjoys perfect health.
Williams Welch, the instructor in
drawing, is a native of Newberry
County. He attended Newberry Col
lege two years, and then began the
study of drawing in Washington. Re
turning to South Carolina he painted
quite a number of portraits, among
them being one of Senator Butler for
the State house in Columbia. In 1888
e.was employed by the United States
government as an architectural drafts
wan to make designs for the Federal
buildings. After working there for a
year he resigned to pursue his studies
further at the National Academy of
Fine Arts in New York. Upon com
pleting his course there he was chosen
instructor of drawing at the University
f South Carolina; but, after teaching
there for a little more than a year, he
passed a competitive civil service ex
amination and was appointed a me
hanical draftsman in the United
States patent office. When he had
familiarized himself with that work he
went to Paris and entered the Acad
emle de Peintres. While there he was.
chosen to his present position and re-1
turned at the time the college'was ex
pected to open. In the meantime he
has been painting portraits from life for
prominent people in this State and in .

During the gale on Saturday eve
ning the mulberry tree at the corner of
Pratt and Unldwell streets was twisted
and disfigu~red by the wind In a piti
less manner. The reporter sto in
Robertson & Gilder's store and wit
nessed the merciless manner in which
that tree was treated by the storm.
Its top was torn off;, and what beauty
the tree possessed was destroyed.
That treE has been the favorite place
where congregated to rest under its
shade town and country folk, and in
dulged in argumentation and discourse
on the issues of the political campaigns
for the last twelve years.
Shorn of its branches, now nothing
remains but the gnarled trunk. Its
leaves, its crown and beauty, are gone,
and it offers no shade.

The Fate of Dub Meetze, of Lexington -
He was a Worthless Tramp, and
Burned the House in which
Lived his Wife and Chil

LCondensed from the Register.]
Early yesterday morning news
reached Columbia that "Dub" Meetze
had been hunted down and lynchtd by
a mob between 9 and 10 o'clock Sun
day night at his old home in Lexing
ton County, about seven miles from
About a year ago a warrant was is
sued against Meetze in this county for
forgery and one in Lexington County
for horse-stealing. He was captured in
Florida and brought back and put in
jail. The cases against him were com
promised and dropped upon t'Qe ex
press condition that he would leave the
State forever. He was released and
Meetze had made threats to burn his
own house and the houses of several
people who informed against him in
the horse-stealing matter, and had
threatened also to kill others. He had
gone away however, and the commu
nity felt at ease.
A few days ago it was rumored that
he had come back and was hiding
around in the neighborhood. The citi
zens were at once aroused to a feeling
of fearful suspense, not knowing at
what time a house would be burned or
somebody killed from ambush.
Last Wednesday-night Meetze's
house was burned down and his wife
and two children narrowly escaped be
ing burned to death. The fears of the
community were still further aroused
by this and every one felt certain that
it was Meetze's work, and the question
was whose house would be next. The
ple then began to look out for
Sunday morning, while the congre
gation was at service at Zion Church,
a colored gill went there in a state of
considerable excitement and told the
people that she had seen Meetze in the
woods near the house of Mr. Andrew
Lorick, whose house was in the list of
those threatened to be burned.
The people at once resolved to insti
tute an organized search for Meetze,
whom they regarded as an outlaw and
of whom they were afraid.
They sent;for Sheriff Drafts and the
search began at once. After searching
until about 9 o'clock without avail, the
posse stopped for the night, going to
Sheriff Drafts was at Mr. Lorick's
house, and shortly afterward he and
Mr. Lorick heard some shooting over
in the direction of Meetze's housei
which had been burned.
In company with Mr. Lorick, the
Sheriff went to the place and looked
around, but no one was to be seen. A
groan was heard. They asked who it
was and the reply came that it was
Meetze. Going in the direction of the
groan, they came upon Meetze lying a
few yards from the barn in the agonies
of a fearful death. There helay in the
dark night, with no one near. His
slayers had fled. Who they were, no
one knew. Meetze was able to talk a
little and beg for water, but did not say
who shot him. He is reported to have
said that he did not burn his house on
Monday night. In a little while he
breathed his last. The reporter was
unable to learn from any source
whether there was any proof that
Meetze burned his house beyond his
tbzeat and the consequent suspicion
that rested upon him.
From all that could be learned con
cerning his tragic end, it appears
evident that he died at the hands
of the people among whom he was
raised, because they feared him, and
it is said that there Is now a feel
ing of relief in that community that he
:'Dub" Meetze will be remembered
as'the man who was mixed up in the
trouble which resulted in James I.
