There seemed to be more interest in

We would be untrue to ourselves. to
our traditions, to our honored dead,
were we otherwise than sad to-day.
It is not that we are disloyal citizens
of our countr.. It is not that we are
unhappy because we live under the
protection of one flag and are citizens
of a common country. We rejoice in
our sorrow that peace and not war pre
vails. That flag, torn and faded, be
tokens cherished memories of the past,
but no disloyalty to the flag under
whose agis we now enjoy our freedom.
But nothing is lost to patriotism by
our thinking and saying that the past,
of thirty years ago brings in its train
many painful though holy memories.
Cherisbing the memory of convictions
that were ourt;, sincerely, bonestly,
holily ours a generation ago, does not
make us untrue to convictions that
may be ours now. Holding in sacred
memory the devotion and heroism of
men who laid down their lives a willing
sacrifice upon the altar of liberty, does
not, shall not, make us unfaithful to
the trusts committed to us to-day. As
the fond mother, faithful all the year
round to husband and children that re
main, is permitted unmolested, unques
tioned, to go alone on the anniversary
of a loved child's death and shed her
silent tears over the toys and half-worn
clothing, the relics that are treasured
away, so may we, those who were
spared from the conflict of years past,
be allowed to give one day in the year,
without interruption. without criti
cism, to the honoring of those who
gave up their lives in that conflict.
Who compose this gathering to-day?
There are those here who knew and
loved and honored the men whose
names are inscribed on that monument,
men who shared with them in the
hardships of tent and field, men whose
own lives have been made better and
nobler by their association with those
men and by the memory of their valor;
women who gave their husbands, their
lovers, it may be their sons, for a cause
in which they were ready to peril, to
surrender, home and comfort and life,
yea everything but honor; young men
and woien who, though they have no
personal recollections of that memora
ble struggle, yet have been taught to
revere the devotion and courage and
fortitude of the fathers and motherm of
the generation past, and in whose
veins flows th blood of heroes.
Why are you here? To honor the
memory of the' heroic dead; old and
young, to lay their garlands on the
resting places of the brave men, known
and unknown, who gave their all for
a cause that they loved unto death.
But there is another reason for this
gathering. We are not living wholly
or mainly in a regretrul past. While
not entire~ly forgetting the past, fondly
cherishing much of it, our faces and
our steps are toward the future. The
lives of the brave and good should
serve to remind us of what we and our
children may become. The recollec
tion of the ive hundred heroes whose
names are on that monument should
inspire us to loftier purpose and holier
resolve. Perhaps it is here that "Memo
rial Day" leaves its best impress.
What men bere, survivors of that
struggle, are not made better by the
annual return of Memorial Day, when
they are reminded of the virtues and
heroic deeds of the men who fought
and died a generation ago? Who are
not helped to nobler audeavor, to braver
living, by the recollection of what good
and true men did and suffered for their
convictions of whbat was right? Who
can recall the "Matchless Lee," the
knightly Jackson, the chivalrous
8tuart, the gallant Ashby, and Gregg
and Bee, and a host of otners whose
names are household words, without
being stimulated to higher courage
and more heroic daring in the cause of
right and truth?
Sad is it for any people when they
cease to revere the names of those who
died that others might live and enjoy
the fruits of their sufferings.
God forbid that the day should ever
come, when the people of Newberry
shall forget or cease to honor the names
of such men as Rutherford, Maffe-tt,
Simkins and the others whose names
are written there, and James D. Nance,
who has been styled the "Chevalier
Bayard" of New berry County, the man
"without fear and without ieproach";
or that the peple of South Carolina
shall forget tat other hero of the "Lost
Cause," the gallant soldier, the loyal
citizen, the modest gentleman, the
humble Christian, Joseph B. Kershaw,
who has just won his last victory, and

Mrs. T. C. McDowell was suddenl
startled out of her sleep, between 11 an
12 o'clock, last Friday night, by
sharp, crasbing sound, as though
lamp or pistol had exfloded in he
room. She perceived that the lam
burned brightly and everything quiet
The children were asleep and her roon
undisturbed in any way. She was s(
much agitated, however, that she coul<
not call for help. She lay awake fo
some time, almost afraid to move, con
jecturing the while as to the probabl(
cause of the mysterious noise. Slee;
came to her relief until morning, whet
a search was made, and, to her horror
she found that a pistol ball had passed
through a pane of glass and over he:
bed, just a liEtle above where she was
sleeping all unconscious of danger. The
bullet struck the edge of the mantle
splintered the wood and then fell t<
the floor. The ball was from a 32 calibrn
When she found how narrowly she
and her babes had escaped the peril o:
the night, she was naturally very muc
alarmed, and it was impossible foi
friends and neighbors to dissuade hei
from the belief that it was the brutal
work of design. They tried to persuade
her that it could hardly be possible
there was a fiend in our midst that
would attempt her life, and that it
must have been the result of miserable,
criminally-careless shooting, of which
we hear so much and read so much
everywhere these days. Mrs. McDowell
telegraphed her husland who was on
the C. C. and A. road, and he came
over Saturday night fast as his train
could fetch him.
It transpired the next day that the
shooting was done by some negro boys
who were said to have been firine at an
iron post on Gauntt street, about two
hundred yards away.
It is time that wearing loaded pistols
and shooting them off recklessly should
cease. No one's life is safe, for there is
no accounting for a bullet after it leaves
the mouth of a pistol. It is a criminal
offense, And shooting at a mark at
midnight on the public highway is
reckless in the extreme.

A Negro Shoots a White Man Down and
Then Beats Him Over the Head
On last Thursday afternoon J. T.
Knox was bLut and killed by Henry
Peaster. Knox was a white man liv
ing on D. M. Ward's place. Peaster is
a negro who was working for Mr. Ward
at his still two miles flom town.
Peaster had been at work on a tenant
house in the vicinity and left his work
and went three hundred yards out of
his way in order to pass along where
Knox was ploughing and to picx a
quarrel with him. They both fired
at each other simultaneously at long
range, and too far for Knox's shotgun
to have any etiect. Each then fired
two uore shots, when the negro closed
on Knox with his pistol, knowing that
L Knox had no other weapon, and with
r a vile oath told him, "I have you
now," and fired, the ball striking
Knox just below the tenth rib.
Knox then threw hit -.hotgun at the
brute, who took the gun and broke the
lock and stock over Knox's head. He
then jumped upon Knox with his feet,
and while in this act Mr. Ward, who
had heard the shots, came upon the
scene and the negro fled. He has not
Knox was attended by Dr. Houseal,
but died Saturday morning. The in
quest was held in the afterLoon and
developed the facts as above stated.
Knox came to Newberry from Green
ville about a year ago and married a
daughter of Mr. G. W. Merchant.
