Many eurious and interesting sights
are seen on the Midway Plaisance, this
street of all nations, the Mecca of all
visitors to tbe Great World's Fair, at
Chicago; but among all its exhibits the
"Panorama of the Swiss Alps" is doubt
less the most highly artistic. To those
whose good fortune it has been togo
"abroad," this panorama awakens old
memories, and to the many who have
been less fortunate this really grand
painting is a revelation. It is a perfect
representation of the famed Bernese
Oberland, as it would appear in all the
immensity of reality to a sight-scer in
the midst of the Alps. The illusion is
made perfect by the truthfulness of
local color and by the vigorous and
sincere painting of such artists as Burn
and, Baud-Bovy and Furet. This
superb canvas was painted in Paris,
France, for the express purpose of!
exhibition at the Wodld's Fair, and has
received the well-deserved encomiums
of all the leading Frencht and American
artists. r tf

"LOVE WILL ABIDE!"

Love never faileth !-, Cor. xiii, S.
Omnia vincit amor!-Latan Proverb.
In Newberry County the trav'ler may note
'Twixt the Broad and Saluda, the trace of a moat.
Beknown as the "Dead Line", (for so he is told),
That strictly divided the settlers of old,
Since northward were dwelling the Irish and
And southward the Germans had peopled the
Each party intent upon watching their side,
Forgetting the lesson that "LOVE WILL ABIDE'
One morn, through the "Dutch Fork", from
farm to farm,
From homestead to homestead was spread the
That Gretchen "Dutch Gretchen", the settlement's
Was stolen at night-time by Billy McBride.
Detected too early in their design,
The two were overatken, when crossing the
Reproved for her venture, fair Gretchen replied:
"You cannot divide us, for "LovE WILL ABIDE!"
Now so it would hap, that at the same hour
"Dutch Hans" had abducted "Scotch Bess" from

That bloomed in the manor of Duncan McCall.
Their flight was discovered: and hotly beset

But the captors of Gretchen and Billy McBride!
"Cheer up, love!" spake Bessie, "for LOVE WILL
And so the two parties, with the culprits between,
Stood facing each other with angered mien;
Each father demanding his daaghter's return,
Each lover protesting with ardent concern,
Each maid as collected, as if 'twere not her case.
Till, at last, after fruitless discussion of ways,
'Twas left to the damsels the point to decide.
What else was thier verdict, but: "LOVE WILL
For Gretchen responded with obstinate wil!
By a pout of her lips: "I cling to my Bill!"
And Bessie replied with a sidelong glance
Upon her beloved: "I stand by my Hans !"

On mutual suspicion, refusing as guide
That dearest of saying, that Lovz WILL ABIDE
There was a grand wedding, as well you may
When Bill wed his Gretchen and Hans wed his
But a wedding far greater than either of these,

After the usual "blacklisting" busi

favorably. Minutes of previously meet
ing suspended to hear report of com
mittee on investigation of rumors. Re
port ordered recorded in moments of
meeting. Rumor that just any son of

association to Cnicago, proved to be
unfounded in fact; rumor that not one
of the prohibition members was pres
ent at the county prohibition conven
tion some time back, proved to be
true, and those members were cen
sured for inconsistency, as the presi
dent did not see how they could be
such ardent prohibitionists and not
attend the conventiou against ardent
spirits before the dispensary days;
rumor that several of the brethren
were contemplating matrimony at
this trying season, was proved to be a.
slander on the organization-bacon ton
high and cash too low. (That last
rumor was run- up to parties who
wanted to break down the order.)
Questions discussed but unanswered.
1. Why is it that every time there is a
big fruit crop and our housekeepers
want to make lots of jam and preserves
and jelly, sugar is always so high
"out of sight," as it were-and when
there is no fruit at all, sugar is low
enough to be within reach of the poor
est man, who always has the largest
family? 2. Why is it that every time
a fellow is in a hurry to take a trip
on the cars the train is bound to be
late, whilst the many times he is not
in a hurry to stay at home he always
hears the whistle and the bell to the
minute? 3. Why is it that certain peo
pIe know more about everybody eise's
affairs than about their own?

SW A BABY! A BABY! f
Lem Floyd, black, lives at Helena.
Last Friday afternoon a neat-.looking
young white woman with a three
montirs-old infant arrived from the
up-country and applied to L~em for
lodging. Lem and his family took
the stranger in and extended to her
thbe hospitality of their humble home.
The next morning the woman depart
ed, taking the train towards Colum
bia, leaving the infant with these col
ored people, who kindly consented to
take charge of it, the mother having
told themi that she would, in a few
days, provide for the child's future
welfare. Mr. Irby ID. Shockley inter
ested himself in tbe case and thought
fully provided for the comfort of the
innocent little waif by taking it to his
home. On Monday Const2ble Baxter,
armed with the necessary papers from
Justice Evans, went to Helena and
took legal possession of the young
cast-away, turning it over to Mr. Jeff.
D. Chapman, who, on Mr. Shockley's
advice, took the infant and will care
for it for the present. In the mean
time the woman's brother, having
heard of her whereabouts through a
train hand who knew the family, got
to Helena on Monday, but found that
she had taken the train at Newberry
as stated. The brother of the unfor
tunate woman has requested that the
names and residences of the parties
and the circumstances of the affair be
spared from public circulat=on, which
wa withhold for the present.
J. ID. says as everybody seems to
want to see the baby he thinks he will
bring it down town some day for the
general inspection of the public. It
has been pronounced cute.
Are the recent personally political
letters subjects of criticism? If so, this
corresponoent ventures the following:
A politician is a politician the world
over. A set of politicians, some in
office and of coures working to hold
fast and others out but trying to get
in, are on friendly terms. In Wash
ington they meet together and receive
each other's endorsement. In their
moments of social intercourse they
talk freely. Their relations, and their
hours of consultation, are pleasant.
Hope makes them of one mind; and
in their ignorance of the future they
reveal the secrets of the past and relate
to each other their personal and polit
ical experiences. Congeniality begets
c'nfidence even in the deceitfulness of
the present. Time flies and opportu
nity dies. From some cause the se m
ingly friendly relations existing be
tween the set of politicians are sev
ered. With some, hope fails of "glad
fruition," and the littie pleasant pel
lets are changed to political dynamite
bombs. (Diuty is politics and soiled
the average politician, but nothing is
dirtier than to betray the confidence
of a once obliging friend under any cir
cumstances ) A mass of irrelevant stuff
is inflicted upon a suffering puhlic.
"A talebearer revealeth secrets." " Th
fool rageth and is confident." "He
that is soon angry dealeth foolishly,"
and "the foolish ness of fools is folly."
QUER.-When a man, in speaking
of another on any given occasion, says:
"Whose veracity no man will serious
ly question in his presence," does he
infer that the man is truthful? That
inference was very flatly denied or
contradicted by a gentleman in New
berry last Saturday afternoon in the
course of a conversation between sev
eral parties. The language quoted
either intends to convey the impres
sion of veracity or fails of its object,
one of the two. The man is truthful
-er.-Latest U. S. Gov't Report.
or the writer of the sentence inferred
what he could not plainly say, leaving
a loophole of escape if questioned, and
in that evant deceiving the public.
Which is it? Perhaps a certain news
paper in this town could "specify?"
To threaten one with further ex
posure, if lie retaliate, looks like trying
to sileue him in advance.
If one man knows another to be a
coward, it doesn't show bravery to so
denounce him. NEEDLE.

nied by Rev. H. M. Raif'ord. of Colum
bia, mounted the stand.. Prayer wa
offered by Rev. N. Chiles. G. C. Presi
dent Wallace then introduced Rev.
Raiford in a telling little speech.
The principal topic of the speaker
was the progrevs of the race for twenty
eight years in thc professional and in
dostrial circles of his country as an
educator, a common school teacher,
machinist, merchant, farmner and doc
tor. He also gave the approximate
amount of taxable property held by
the colored man in the South and
made since the war.
He showed the great need of socie
ties among the race, and proved that
the "Future Progress Society" has
shown itself to be one of the best socie
ties in the State for the race. He re
viewed the object of this popular socie
ty as stated in the second article of the
constitution. He said it wes enough to
induce every man and woman of the
race to join.
Glancing at the history of the race he
said it baa done well, but there was
much yet to be done. As a race we

Three Negroes Lynched at Gaston for As
sault Upon Mrs. Sightler.
COLUM BIA, S. C., July 25.-At Gas
ton, a little town fourteen miles from
Columbia on the South Bound railroad,
last night two negroes named Handy
and Thompson forced an entrance into
the dwelling of Archie Sightler, white,
and knocked Mrs. Sightler down and
threatened to kill her little boy, 6 years
old, if he made any outcry. rhe boy
escaped and met a party of fox hunters
who returned to the house, but the ne
groes had escaped, it is presumed, after
outraging the lady. Handy was caught
and Thompson is supposed to be in
Columbia. Parties are after.him. The
negroes entered the house in a nude
SCOURGED, HANGED AND RIDDLED
COLU5111A, S. C., July 30.-The
lynching occurred at Geston to-day.
The first to swing was Will Thompson,
a negro 16 years old, who committed
all assault upon Mrs. Archie Sightler,
of Gaston. He was captured near Co
lumbia. He was taken to Gaston early
this morning. A special train over the
South Bound took seventy-five people
from Columbia, who joined the people
of the neighborhood, but they took no
Thompson was subjected to horrible
torture by the crowd before he was
hung. Men cocked their guns and
pistols and put them in his face, but
lie did not show fear until the crowd
wanted to burn him. He asked them
for God's sake to do anything else but
that, and some cool heads prevented
such a horrible tragedy.
He was taken down the railroad to a
small tree just on the embankment.
Mr. Sightler, the husband of the out
raged woman, took a heavy buggy
trace and beat him unmercifully. A
rope around his neck prevented him
from yelling. Fifty heavy lashes were
laid on, each one drawing blood.
Sightler then knocked him in the head
and face, knocking out his teeth and
one eye ball
A platform of crossties was made
and Thompson was placed upon it. A
rope was put around his neck, and he
confessed the crime, implicating two
other negroes named Preston and
The platform was knocked out tie by
tie, and the poor wretch was slowly
strangled. He was allowed to suffer
two minutes, when hundreds of buck
shot riddled his body. One shot cut
the rope and the body fell, but was
strung up again, and the crowd fired
hundreds of shots, in the lifeless body.
The crowd then went gn a search for
Preston, who was captured about 11
o'clock. He was subjected to the same
treatment, if not worse. He denied
his guilt to the last, but he wes strung
up on the same limb upon which
Thompson'i body was hanging. He
was afflicted with a filthy disease,
which caused the crowd to be more
angry. While he was struggling in
death thousands of bullets were shot
into him. leaving hardly a square inch
untouched. Haigler will be lynched
THE THIRD NEGRO LYNCHED.
COLUMBIA, S. C., July 31-Handy
Kaigler, the third negro in the Gaston
outrage, was strung up tnis morning
to the same limb upon which the
bodies of Thompson and Preston were
banged. Kaigler had been in Lexing
ton jail since Wednesday night in safe
keeping. When he was taken there
it was understood between the lynch
ing crowd from Gaston and the sheriff
that Kaigler should be delivered to
them when they wanted him. As the
man was not committed by a regular
process of law, the sheriff -promised to
keep him and deliver him when want
ed. At 12 o'clock last night six men
rode into Lexington village and, hav
ing produced the proofs that they
were representatives of the people of
Gaston, Sheriff Drafts opened the
doors and gave Kaigler to them.
There was no excitement or anger dis
played. The crowd was there for bus
iness and they transacted it in short
order and went away.
.They took the prisoner back to Gas
ton, arriving there about daylight. A
large crowd was present and they pro
ceeded to give Kaigler the same treat
ment that was accorded the other two
men who were hanging lifeless and
perforated on a small limb. Kaigler
was taken to the same spot and be saw
the two bloody bodies before him. The
crowd had previously been beating
him with whips, sticks and anything
else they could pick up.
They hung him for two minutes try
ing to make him confess, but under all
the punishment he steadily refused to
confess. He stagd positively that he
was not one of the men and no amount
of torture which was inflicted upon
him would make him confess any com
plicity in the crime. Tiring of all ef
fort for a confession, the mob stripped
him and called for the outraged hus
band to come forward and whip him.
Arch Sightler did so, and although ex
hausted by loss of sleep each blow he
hit brought blood and piteous cries
from the prisoner, who was held down
by the other men. Sightler finally be
camne exhausted but another man took
his place and the cruel lashing was re
newed with vigor.
WVhen Kaigler was almost dead and
when the two men had exhausted
themselves whipping him, he was
strung up between Thompson and
Preston. A platform was made for
him, a rope was put around his neck
and having been thrown over the limb,
fifty men took- hold and gradualiy
pulled him up. They did not jerk hian
suddenly so as to break his neck. They
pulled him up gradually and let him
down at times. They did this.to tor
ture him as much as possible before
death ensued. After letting him down
time and again he was finally pulled
up for the last time. His struggling
was horrible to behold but they did not
seem to care. Arch Sightler finally
drove a bullet into the man's head and.
death was immediate.
