The Spirits of Hobgoblins or Something
Else in Newberry County.
There are many strange things hap
pening these days, but we don't pro
pose to let Georgia have all the glory
of the supernatural. South Carolina
must have her share and New berry a
slice. From the day those devils were
ast into the sea to the time that that
ghost was seen on the bill of Blue
Ruin, and since, fantastic, grotesque
and gruesome bhapes or vapory sub
stances have beed seen or imagined or
felt by the superstitious or reflected by
hallucination, from the North to the
South Pole and from Beaver Dam tL
Coosaw. We don't have to call up
spirits from the vasty deep now when
we want to be entertained in a ghastly
ghostly though friendly maniner. It
has come to pass thaL we have them
nearer at hand, puzziing the ignorant
and perplexing the learned-aud in
tensifying the profaniry of siuners who
ive the phenomenal a Munchausen
redit. Witchcraft and hoodooisru in
the land have evolved into a higher
state of civilization and the mysterious
is now conducted with professional
polish in many parts of the couutry.
Still, a few things occur which have a
mysteriousness about them, L. say the
least, if and when they are true.
The "seances" have commenced in
Newberry County and the spirits seem
to have materialized, so it has been
reported to the reporter.
Giles Sligb is a colored lad about 12
>r 13 years old, living in the "Fed"
Dominick section, near the Laurens
line, and is said to have demonstrated
the fact that he is possessed of some
power outside of that given to the or
dinary individual, unless there is some
thing wrong in the matter. Giles was
in a field on the Griffin place, near by,
last Thursday morning, pulling fodder
with Mart Wheeler, also colored, when
all of a sudden rocks of various sizes
egan falliqg around them. Mr. Wal
lingsee hearing of it went over to in
vestigate the matter, and to his amaze
nent found the facts as reported. He
muld not see where the rocks came
rrom. The hidden and unseen part of
the transaction was to him like the
wind which "bloweth where it list
th," while he "heareth the sound
thereof," he cannot toll "whence it
ometh nor whither it goeth," except
he knows that one of the rocks struck
him on the head. He knows that. The
next day the boy was at Mr. Burr
Werts', the old Anderson place, about
three miles distant, when the rock
throwing feat was again accomplished.
It is said the boy can call up the
rocks at any time wherever he goes.
These incidents can be vouched for
y reliable parties.
Let the rock showers continue.

The game of ball to have been played
etween the Newberry and Monticello
eams, on the grounds of the Broad
River (Jerusalem Street) nine, failed
o materialize on account of the heavy
ownpour of rain on the 14th instant;
ut the bit of "friendly instruction"
illed for the 15th rolled in on time,
uch to the surprise of the "Israel
Ites," who were extremnely short of
layers-having only two of their reg
lar nine within reach. But in order
o show some appreciation of the diffi
ulties through which Mouticello had
ome, a nine was hastily caught up
nd playing began about 3 p. m.
Although the "Israelites" deported
hemselves very handsomely for the
first two innings, holding the score
within the realm of respectability,
still it was evident that they were not
"in it" by a handsome majority; so
much so, indeed, that the game
canged from a basis of contention to
ne of admiration at the superb play
ing of the Fairfield boys.
It was instructive to see the boys
trying to book one of Hanahan's in
terrogation points or divine the matter
between his parentheses.
Score: Monticello,41; Jerusalem, 0.
After such a send-off I do not think
that the "Lost Child'n" will think of
accepting a challenge from anything
hort of New York or Chicago.
We are pleased to hear to-day that
the Newberrys will meet Monticello,
n our grounds, in about three weeks;
t which time we feel that lovers of
the game will find something to inter

ELY PURE
CONGRESSMAN SHELL HURT.
Knocked Down by a Cable Car and Dragged
Along the Streets-Injuries Painful,
but not Believed to be Serions
Resting QUetly.
[Special to News and Courier.]
WASHINGTON, August 21.-Congress
wan Shell was knocked down by a
cable car-in Pennsylvania avenue to
night, and sustained painful if not
serious injuries. He was on his way to
the Capitol to attend a night session on
the silver bill and listen to a speech
against the repeal of the Sherman Act,
by his young colleague, Mr. McLaurin.
Capt. Shell intended to take a cable
to the Capitol, so be left his hotel and
proceeded to the middle of the avenue
to await for a Capitol car. Instead of
taking his position on the off side of the
track he stood between the tracks. An
up and a down car came along, and he
was caught bet ween them. He was
knocked down and dragged several feet
by the car.
The accident took place in front of
the Metropolitan Hotel, and the side
walk was lined with people waiting to
welcome home the District militia, wbo
bad just returned from a successful rifie
contest at Seagirt, N. J.
Several persons ran to Capt. Shell's
assistance, and he was carried to his
apartment in the Metropolitan Hotel.
His clothes were torn and he was
bruised about the head and face. His
shoulder was also strained, and he re
ceived a general shaking up.
Upon examination it was found that
Capt. Shell had sustained no internal
injuries, and Dr. Walsh informed me
that he did not believe his patient was
seriously injured.
When I saw the Captain in bed he
was unable to talk to me, as the doctor
had directed that he should not be dis
turbed. He seemed to be in consider
able pain, but the bruises upon his face
and head were not ugly. He complains
of a severe pain in his chest, but other
wise he is resting quietly at this hour,

In closing, Governor Tiliman ex
pressed his conviction that great good
would grow out of the Fair.
There had gathered in the room while
Governor Tillman was speaking, a very
large delegation from the Augusta expo
sition. Fusily seventy-five representa
tive ladies and gentlemen from Augusta
were there and it was probably a novel
scene to have so many ladies gathered
-in this room during a sitting of the
body.

"Te Pretty Little Organist I Meet at In
dian Springs."
Many persons in Newberry femem
er very pleasantly the young lady
mentioned below.
Miss A nnie Cargill visited the Misses
Glenn in Newberry on more than one
occasion and has many friends here.
The following mention is made of
her by the Indian Spring correspon
dent of the Atlanta Journal :
"Miss Annie Cargill, of Columbus,
adds luster to every occasion with her
bright face and winning ways. She is
an accomplished musician, organist of
the Methodist chnrch at home and a
young lady of rare culture and attain
ments."
The poem below was writt en by
Montgomery M. Folsomi in the Journal
and dedicated to Miss Cargill:
THlE ORGANIST.
As she sat there in the gloaming time
and lightly touched the keys,
The music came like summer winds en
wild and restless seas,
It was like a sweet soul anodyne to sit
and hear her sing
The pretty little organist, I met at II -
dian Spring !
Her pure young face and artless air
and glance betoken more
Than all life's strange experience can
hope to hold in store.
In;God's own ligh t she walked beneath
some Guardian Angel's wing,
The happy little organist I met at In
dian Spring !
I've heard the sweep of master hands
awake each sobbing note,
The melody of artful skill from many
a throbbing throat
But to my weary heart they none such
restfulness could bring,
As the dreamy little organist I beard
at Indian Spring !

WASHINGTON, Aug. 20.-Wirepull
ing is the order of the day in politics.
Washington is continually alive with
the ingress and egress ot candidates.
Some arrive in the city as office hunt
ers who-deny their mission to the ap
pointing powers; they ostensibly go on
some other business in adjoining cities,
but make it convenient to slip into
Washington and "see the President,"
or the Postmaster-General, as the case
may be. Some are Aonest enough to
state their mission. But they cannot
all succeed as a matter of fact. Many
in all the States of the Union are still
to be disappointed. May the best men
win reg:;.rdless of faction.

AGAINST THE STATE
Judge Simonton Decides that. Ralroad
Can Bring Liquor Into the State.
GREF.NVILLF-, S. C., Aug. 21.-Tb4
decision of Judge Simonton in thi
United States Circuit Court in tht
habeas corpus case of Langford wat
tiled to-day.
Laugford is the agent of the Rich.
mond and Danville Railroad at Pros
perity, in this State. He was arrested
and held under the twenty-fifth sec
tion of the State Dispensary liquor law
for delivering to the consignee a keg ol
whiskey shipped from outside of this
State. The section referred to forbids
any common carrier to transport, or
any agent to deliver, packages of liquor
which have not the official certificate
of the State's Dispenser that they are
ifor the State Dispensary. The railroad
company claimed that this section was
contrary to the interstate commerce
laws and the fourteenth amendment to
the Constitution of the United States.
The State claimed that it was the exer
cise of its legitimate police powers.
Judge Simonton's decision briefly
synopsized is as follows: The twenty
fifth section of the Dispensary Act
makes it a misdemeanor for a rallroad
employee to deliver any intoxicating
liquors from his train, and without re
quiring knowledge on his part that the
package contains intoxicating liquorsor
that it is intended for sale. In every
other instance mentioned in thissection,
including private carriers and railroad
and expresscompanies, knowledge that
the intoxicating liquor is intended for
sale is expressly required. This is a
discricm ination against one class of peo
ple-railroad employees-andis in con'
flict with theConstitutionof thisState;
and so not within its police powers and
therefore Dot within the provisions of
the Act of Congeess known as the
Wilson Act. This being the case, the
clause of the twenty-fifth section of
the Dispensary Act, under which the
petitioner was charged and arrested, is
void u%der the interstate -commerce
law and the fourteenth amendincut.
He must be discharged from custody.
The State will piobably appeal to
the United States Supreme Court.
The decision will cause the discharge
of several railroad agents in various
parts of the State that have been ar
rested as Langford was. The railroad
people claim that it virtually relieves
them of restrictions in bringing into
the State and delivering liquor.

DEATHS.
Mrs. Thos. F. Harm6n died early
yesterday morning of rheumatism of
the brain. She was an amiable and
kind hearted lady and leaves hus
band and a sweet little daught4r to
mourn the irreparable loss of wife and
mother.
Dr. Thomas W. Boozer died pn the
21st instant, aged 73 years. Dr. Boozer
was a graduate of the Charleston Med
ical College in the class of 1840, and
enjoyed a large and lucrative practice
of his profession for about twenty-five
years, when his health gave out andI he
retired to the quietude of his farm. -He
was an honorable citizen and was
buried at Smyrna yesterday.
Miss Sarah A. Fritz, formerly of Co
lumbia, died on the 18th instant, of
consumption, at the home of her niece,
Mrs. A. C. Jones.
Her illness, of long duration, was pa
tiently and submissively borne, look
ing for the end as but the sweet going
home, where so many loved ones were
waiting. Her pure-spirit was ready fox
the heavenward call for her life had
been a consecrated one.
A devoted member of the Methodist
Church, she manifested in her daily
living the true spirit of Christ-faith,
humility, charity-and in each of the
shining virtues she tave evidence of
her sincere piety.
Her gentle, sympathetic r,ature en
deared her to all, and her influence
will ever be felt by those who honor
and cherish her memory. Her remains
are sweetly resting in Rosemont ceme
tery and the imperishable soul is in
paradise joyously waiting the first res
un ection,which will be of the glorified
spiritual bodies of the sainted dead.
