STRUCK BY A TRAIN.
The Narrow Escape of Mr. Robert Norris.
He Steps Off the Track to Let One
Train Pasm and Is Struck by
Another Running 50
Miles an Bour.
Mr. Robert Norris had a narrow s
cape with his life yesterday afternoon.
He is a student of Newberry College,
and left Newberry for his home yester
day afternoon at 3 o'clock, walking the
railroad track. About one and a half
miles below Newberry towards Pros
rity he met a freight train on the
Suthern Railway and stepped off the
track to give the freight room to pass,
but in doing so stepped, almost as It
were, into the very jaws of death, for
he had hardly gotten out of the way of,
the freight before the down passenger
on the C. N. & L. came bulging around
the curve at the rate of fifty miles an
hour, and when Engineer Graham saw
Mr. Norris he was only about forty
yards from the engine on the track.
On account of the noise of the freight
the young man did not hear the pass
enger train, and was all unoonscious of
the Imminent danger that he was in.
Engineer Graham blew his whistle and
reversed his engine, but before he had
time to do this the engine was on the
young man without slacking in the
least its swift speed. He was struck on
the right side of the spinal column just
below the shoulder and thrown some
four feet in the air and headlong down
the embankment. Engineer Graham
said he would have-given his right
arm to have stopped his engine,
but it was of no avail. Of oourse he
supposed the young man was killed.
The train was stopped ind Capt. Webb
had the young man taken up and he
brought him back to Newberry on his
train and sent for Dr. W. G. Houseal
and instructed him to do all for his re
lief that was possible. He was taken
to'the residence of Dr. J. C. Halfacre,
and proper medical attention was given
him. Dr. Houseal says n6 bones are

Almost a Fire.
Last Thursday- night about ten
o'clock Mr. 3. Wm. Smith, of No. 6
TownshIp, discovered his gin house on
fire. There were about six bales of
cotton in the house at the time. The
fire seemed to have started at a hole
under the gin that was made for the
dust and dirt to escape, and Mr. Smith
feels sure that it was an attempt at in
eendiarism. Fortunately the fire was
discovered about as soon as started. and
the lint cotton had been taken out of
the room and put in the press. He
had a barrel or two of water in the
house and the fire was soon under con
trol, and very little damage was done.
There is too much of this sort of work
going on, and there needs to be a stop
put to it. Some of- the guilty parties
must be apprehended an d proper pun

NO USE FOR CUTCHES.
A RE,arkable Cure by Leo. the Wonderful
-% Capm or Rheutnatismn of Four Years'
Standing Dispelled as if by Magic
Only Thirteen and a Balf Minutes
for the Operation.
The fame of Mr. John Leo ia now
spread throughout the borders of New
berry, for on Saturday be performed a
most remarkable cure in the presence
of an immense crowd of people from all
sections of the county, and Edgefield
was also well represented.
The patient upon whom this most
wonderful cure was effected is Lonnie
Griftin, son of Mr. Isaac Griffin, who
lives near Prosperity. The young man
has been severely afflicted with rheu
matism in the knees and ankles for the
past four years, during which time he
has not been able to put on his shoes,
and could not even walk without great
difficulty by the use of crutches. It
must have taken him at least fifteen
minutes to walk from the hotel to Mr.
Leo's platform, with the assistanee of
Mr. Leo and his father.
On arriving at the stand the young
man had to be carried upon the plat
form and assisted to a chair. Every
body could see that he was sorely af
After Mr. Leo had made all his pre
liminaries, he began rubbing his lini
ment upon the young man's feet and
limbs. The reporter does not think
that the rubbing process was more vig
orous than gentle, for Mr. Leo possesses
the touch of woman's hand. His move
ments were rapid, however, and in
seven minutes one Hmb had been
rubbed, and the young man was able
to move his knee and ankle joints. In
six and a half minutes more, the other
limb had been rubbed and Lonnie
Grifran was actually able to put on his
own stockings and shoes, something he
had not done in four years. The swell
ing had been so reduced that the un
shapely No. 8 shoes were discarded and
Lonnie Griffin put on a new pair-No.
7-furnished by Mr. Leo. He then
rose upon his feet, and woDderful to
relate, walked with almost unfaltering
step the full length of the platform,
amid the encouraging shouts of the
crowd. His crutches hung discarded
upon the end -f the platform. He
walked up and down the. platform
again, and again, improving each
It was one of the most touching
sights ever v. itnessed in this town.
The father of the young man was so
overcome -with gratitude that he was
too full for utterance, but gratefully
thanked Mr. Leo for the great thing
that he had done for his boy.
Mr. Leo not only performed this re
markable cure without money and
without price, but he headed a sub
scription and collected in all eight dol
lars from the crowd which he pre
sented to the young man.
The reporter conversed with a num
ber of Mr. Isaac Griffin's. neighbors
around the stand and they all bore the
same testimony in regard to his severe
affliction during the past four years.
They all marveled at the wonderful
cure Mr. Leo had wrought and re
joiced in Lonnie Griffin's restoration
of the power of walking with pleasure
and no pain.
Mr. Griffin and his son were in town
on Monday. The young man bad no
more need of crutches.
- SOME MORE WONDERFUL CURES.
On Monday Mr. Leo performed two
more almost miraculous cures. Mrs.
White of the Factory Hill had been
paralyzed in her right arm for ten
years. She had been unable to grasp
anything with or to use it. Mr. Leo
said he could cure her, and sure enough
be did. He applied his wonderful lini
ment for about ten minutes and told
her to raice her arm. At first she
seemed to think she could not, but on
a second effort she raised it without
apparent trouble and could grasp with
her hand. After shaking hands and
bending her arms she took hold of a
heavy wood chair and raised it from
the floor svith her paralytic hand and
The other patient was a seven year
old sonf of Mr. and Mrs. Konkle, who
was affected very much in the same
way. A fter the cure in this case Mr.
Leo took up a subscription for the boy,
and headed thbe list himsel.
He makes no charge for any of the
cures-he only sells his medicine, and
he sass nothing affords him more pleas
urethanito be able thus to relievesuffer
It is wonderful. We do not under
stand it. We do not pretend to ex
plain it. All we know is, what we
have seen and related here is true.
The lame have been made to walk and
the paralytic given the use of their
limbs. What it is or how it is done
we will not pretend to say. All we
know is that it isdone. If you do not
believe it, come and see for yourself.
BY THE HOME TREATMENT.
Below is a testimonial from one of
our New berry boys as to the efficacy of
ilavi'ug been benefited by the reme
dies of Mr. Leo, I desire to voluntarily
and gratefully add my testimonial to
the many letters that have been pub
lished from a thankful people regarding
this famous man and his wonderful
medicines. As the public well knows I
was knocked down by a street car in
Washington two months ago, from
which I sustained severe and-serious
injuries, having fallen under the car
and been considerably twisted and
doubled up by it, my back receiving
the greatest injury. After being con
fined to my bed for six weeks. I was
able to come home on furlough; still,
however, having to use crutches. Hear
ing of Mr. Leo and witnessing some of
his miraculous cures, I determined to
try his remedies. I secured some of
his liniment and was relieved by the
first application, and immediately laid
aside my crutches. Before I applied
the liniment I could not stoop suffi
ciently to wash my face. A few appli
cations made me feel like a new man
and put me on the road to entire re
covery, and I shall be able next week
to return to my work at Washington.
But I could not leave Newberry with
out thanking Mr. Leo for the great
benefit his medicine has done me.

died on tbe2nd instant of heartdropsy,
at the residence of her son, Mr. W. C.
Dominick at the age of 85 years, and
was buried at Zion church the follow
iog day, Rev. D Tiller, officiating. On
Sunday Coroner F. M. Lindsay came
down, summoned a jury and took up
the body and held an inquest. The
inquest was unnecessary and uncalled
for, because no one had any idea but
what she came to her death from nat
ural causes. Her son and his family
were present when she died, although
she was dying when she was found in
her bed. Her children expected her to
die very suddenly, knowing her con
dition. She had repeatedly told them
she would go that way and there was
no use in the world in holding an in
quest except for the coroner to fill his
poeket with the public money, and
furthermore, it was only a formality
for it was impossible for the jury to
examnine the body. It would certainly
be commendable in the County Coru
missioners if they would refuse to pay
the coroner for holding this inquest.
The jury brought in a verdict of death
from natural causes.
