At 9.40 o'clock on Sunday evening,
August 3rd, the young life of Elbert
Herman Aull, Jr., came to a close at
the home of his father, Col. E. H.
Aull, in this city. For about six weeks
he had battled manfully against the
ravages of typhoid fever, but the de
cree had gone forth, the skill of the
physicians, the assiduous care and solic
itude of loved ones were counted as
naught, and he quietly and peacefully
fell asleep to awake in the beautiful
Born May 15th, 1886, he has lived
his life in our midst, and we had learned
to esteem him as a high-souled, manly
young man. Gifted with all of those
qualities which are loveable, he was
universally and deservedly popular with
his young companions, and admired by
A student of Newberry College, and
entering his Sophomore year, he gave
promise of honor to his teachers, and
usefulness to the community.
Our hearts go out in deepest sympa
thy to father, mother and family, to
whom we tenderly recall the words of
the meek and lowly one, "Not as I will;
but as thou willest."
Beautiful services were conducted at
the home this, Tuesday, morning at 9
o'clock by Rev. W. L. Seabrook, of
the Church of the Redeemer, of which
he was a baptized member, after which
he was followed to his last resting place
in the "silent city," by a concourse of
those who had known and loved him,
where amidst mounds of beautiful
flowers, he was lowered into the grave
by tender and loving hands.
The family has been the recipient of
many telegrams and letters of sympa
thy and condolence from kind and lov
ing friends in different sections of the
State, who sorrow with them in this
sad hour of affliction.
The pall bearers were Gov. M. B.
McSweeney, of Columbia, Editor Ed.
H. DeCamp, of Gaffney, Rev. W. K.
Sligh, F. L. Bynum, Esq., H. S.
Cannon and J. W. Earhardt.

UNDER THE ROD.
For the second time we have been
made to tread the wine press and pass
under the rod. In our humble home we
now have two vacant chairs. We are
taught in the good Book that afflictions
come to us for some good and wise par
pose, and God's chastening hand is also a
hand of love. We cannot understand why,
but we are told that after awhile we
shall know even as we are known and
see face to face.
In our newspaper experience we have
written many death notices and have
always tried to say some word of sym
pathy and comfort, and while we knew
words from human lips could bring but
little comfort, never before have we so
fully felt the impotency of human com
fort. And yet it is kind and good to
know that your friends grieve with
you in your affliction and we certainly
appreciate 'from the depth of our
broken and bleeding hearts the
many words of sympathy which
which have come from our friends at
home and abroad. The greatest com
fort is the fact that our dear dead boy,
Elbert Herman,. was held in so high
regard by those 'who knew him, and
while he was only a boy and modest
and retiring in disposition and was per
mitted to live only a few short years,
yet his life was not a failure, and
though dead, his influence for good
will live after him. Life after all is
not so much in the years you live as in
the deeds you do and as we pass
under the rod we can have pleas
ant memories of a life that
brightened our home for a few years,
though taken from us just as our hopes
and affections were centered so deeply
in him. Faithful to duty always, obe
dient to parents and teachers, thought
ful and considerate of others and espe
cially the old. In his death we feel the
loss not only of a son but a companion,
one.with whom we could counsel and
consult, feeling absolutely certain that
in him we could trust.
Words of love and sympathy have
come to us from our fridnds and neigh
bors at home, and friends abroad. We
appreciate all these. Mr. Ed. H. De
Camp, for whom a strong attachment
was formed on the trip to Buffalo last
year, came from Gaffney to attend his
funeral, and Gov. McSweeney, who
knew him and appreciated him, came
from his official duties in Columbia.
This is all very kind. Only time can
partly heal the wounds and partially
stop the bleeding from the heart, but
no one and no words can remove the
vacant chair from our home.
Elbert Herman Aull, second son of
Mr. and Mrs. E. H. Aull, died at his
home in this city on Sunday night at
9.40 of typhoid fever. He had been
sick for several weeks, receiving the
most skillful attention of physicians
and nurses, ~and it was hoped at one
time that he had passed the crisis
safely and would get well; but this was
not to be.
Herman Aull was born the 15th day
of May, 1886, and was in his 17th year.
He was a young man of most excellent
and exemplary character, bright and
studious and obedient at school and
college and home, giving parents and
teachers no trouble or uneasiness what- 1
ever, doing his duty fully and cheer
fully at all times. He was a young
man of much promise, and it is very1
sad that he should be - ut off at so
early an age. His parents have thet
profound sympathy of the community
mn their bereavement. -Newberry Ob-!.
LITTLE MOUNTAIN REUNION.
Got) i 'peerhlt"4 10v i i 't; f' ,1.t
On Friday the record was broken in
attendance upon the annual gatherings
in the interest of Newberry college at
Little Mountain. Special trains were
run over the C., N. & L. railroad from
Newberry, Prosperity and Columbia,
and the cars were crowded, carrying to
the Mountain upwards of a thousand
persons, which composed only a small
fraction of the immense crowd which was
estimated at from four to five thousand
people. The oldest citizens of the com
munity pronounced it the largest crowd
ever seen at Little Mountain on a simi
Everybody seemed to be on pleasure
bent, in a happy frame of mind and out
for a day of enjoyment with old class
mates, friends, relatives and acqurin
tances. While the day was warm. it
was not as disagreeable as on some for
mer occasions, the sun's heated rays
being hidden behind the thin clouds
throughout the day, making the day
Many of the candidates from the two
counties, Lexington and Newberry,
were there in their behalf seeking the
suffrages of the voters; the gallant
beaux and beautiful belles were there
and spent the day paired off at different
points on the top of the mountain view
ing the beautiful scenery from afar
one of which was the smoke issuing
from the mammoth chimney of the
Newberry Cotten Mills at a distance of
14 miles, plainly visible to the eye.
It is indeed a beautiful place, and
altogether suitable for these annual
gatherings, which we are glad to note
are being more largely attended from
year to year.
If any one doubts the fact that New
berry college is the pride of the Luther
ans of South Carolina, a visit to one of
these annual gatherings will eliminate
any such idea from his mind.
At this meeting, as on former occa
sions, addresses were made by promi
nent gentlemen in the interest of the
college and education, and all of the
speeches were of a high order and were
well received and closely listened to by
the immense crowd.
The excellent music furnished by the
Little Mountain string band added very
much to the success of the meeting and
was highly enjoyed.
The very best order prevailed through
out the day, and not an unpleasant in
cident, that we heard of, occurred to
mar the pleasure of any who attended;
even the rain held up until all were
securely housed and saved a wetting.
Prof. W. A. Counts, President of the
Little Mountain Reunion Association,
presided, and in calling the meeting to
order asked the crowd to draw near and
give their undivided attention to the
speakers, who would give them some
wholesome food for thought.
The opening prayer, invoking the
divine blessings upon the assemblage
and in behalf of Newberry college, was
offered by Rev. Y. Von A. Riser.
The first business on the program was
the annual meeting of the association,
and the annual election of officers re
sulted in the election of all the old offi
cers as follows: President, Prof. W. A.
Counts; vice-president, Mr. C. D. Ep
ting; secretary, Mr. J. E. Boland.
Rev. Y. Von A. Riser spoke in fitting
terms of the death of Rev. Geo. A.
Riser, which occurred at Mt. Sidney Va.,
last week, and suggested that a com
mittee be appointed to draft suitable
resolutions on his death. The following
committee was appointed: E. U. Sheely,
J. S. Derrick and R. A. Abrams. The
report of the committee will be published
at an early date.
On motion, the first Friday in August
of each year was fixed as the set time
for the annual reunion at Little Moun
Immediately after the business of the
association was completed, Prof Counts
introduced, as the first speaker, Rev. J.
K. Efird, who extended a hearty wel
came to all, and extended thanks to the
people of Lexington and Newberry coun
ties for the hearty welcome extended to
him on his return here. Eleven years
ago he had attended a similar meeting
to this, known then as a Lutheran re
union, now called Newvberry College
reunion. During these ten years he had
wandered long and wide to a distant
land-lived in six different states, and'
in all his wanderings and all his meet
ings and associations, had never met a
more polite, sociable and hospitable
people than these of South Carolina,
and was glad now to be one of them.
Could, by fact of his atsence from the
state 10 years, look upon these people
and note the wonderful improvements
n the farming industry. He believed
if the South was given the opportuni
ies, in a few years the southern men
would outstrip the yankees in many
ways. Our doors should be opened to
he money of the north. Was proud to
be able to say that this country has
awakened to the interest of its sons and
laughters, educationally. Our school
system is by no means complete. We
are behind in that respect. Were he a
Tember of the legislatare he would ad
rocate instead of ap)propriating money
:o high colleges, giving it to the com
non country schools, where the masses
vould get the benefit, and not the few
mp the rich. Related the school sys
em of the west, which rise above every
ing in that country in perfection.
He could have all these advantages if
e would interest ourselves and( say
.o our money shall be used.. The
speaker then turned his remarks to
Newherry college and said that. the
friends of this grand institution should
go hand in hand, ever building it ip,
and solicited the aid of every man on
the grounds in that direction.
The second speaker was I. H1. H 10nt,
Esq., of the Newberry bar. Mr. Hunt
spoke in a clever, forceful manner, and
was given very good attention. As we
have made arrangements to give Mr.
Hunt's speech in full, probably in our
next paper, we will not attempt a syn
Rev. W. A. Lutz, pastor of Grace
Lutheran Church, Prosperity, was the
next speaker. Rev. Lutz began his
speech with several pleasantries, direct
ed mostly at the fair sex and their gal
lant escorts up the mountain. He based
his remarks on the passage of scripture:
"What is man that thou art mindful of
him?'"' He spoke very forcibly on the
advantages of a practical education
christian education, which was neces
sary to round out the perfect man. To
build an all-round man he should be
equipped in school for it-church schools.
It is impossible for the state to build up
the four sides of a man. The speaker
dwelt at some length on the moral ad
vantages of the denominational colleges,
the foundation for college life being laid
in the home school, and under the in
fluence of the pastor. Thought the
state should come in and compel every
child to go to school until the course
laid down by the state had been mas
tered. This would cultivate a taste,
when he got the taste the child would
want to go to college to get a thorough
education. Why a Lutheran should be
uneducated, he could not understand.
Education is our word-education. It
is an educational church. Rev. Lutz'
address was an excellent one and con
tained much deep thought. We are
sorry that we have it not in full.
The next speaker on the program was
Congressman Lever, who stated by let
ter that on account of a campaign meet
ing he was not able to attend, much to
the regret of the large crowd present
who so much admire the young Con
President Cromer was the last speak
er and made one of his open,- strong,
clear-cut and forceful talks for the
college and other good things.
After reading the letter from
Mr. Lever, he showed the many advan
tages derived from a college education
and the many things made possible by
such education, citing|IMr. Lever as a
notable example, by the fact of having
obtained an education at Newberry
College. Dr. Cromer felt like this year
he would like to be in politics. Would
like to have somebody in the race that
would tell the people some things in a
forceful manner. He wvould like to tell
them what he thought of the iniquitous
dispensary law-didn't think the human
mind could conceive of any more ev;l
law; and if you don't want your boy
taught or warned against the dispen
sary law, why don't send him to New
berry College. He would like to tell
them that he favored a child labor bill,
for which he cited strong reasons. He
had no right to say his children should
work and not go to school. Children
should not work in mills under twelve
years of age he didn't care what people
said about it. The idea of letting men
loaf around doing nothing and their
children at work is preposterous. The
State has a right and should say you
shall not make your children work for
eleven hours a day. The State should
see to it that the children of this gen
eration are prepared to do the work for
the next generation. I would say we
should have a compulsory education
law. This negro domination question
we hear of amounts to nothing. He
had been "eating crow'' for the past
several years; voting for men in whom
he had but little confidence and for
whom he had no respect, on account of
this negro domination talk. We are in
no more danger of negro domination
than we are of a Pelee eruption in this
State. The time is never coming when
the negro or any other race will be
above the white people. Who of us
will ever admit that a negro with equal
advantages would excel our boys? Dr.
Cromer's address was closely listened
to and was well received. He spoke in
an earnest manner and carried convic
tion with his arguments. He closed
with some interesting statistics on edu
cation, incidentally alluding to the ad
vantages offered by Newberry College.
At the close of Dr. Cromer's address
the meeting was adjourned and the
af ternoon was spent in seeing the sights
on the mountain.
A barbecue dinner was served on the
grounds and many brought baskets and
had a picnic dinner. The day will long
be remembered by the friends of New
berry College, and many are already
anxiously awaiting the opportunity to
attend another meeting at Little Moun

THE USE OF COTTON SEED OIL AS
How it Came Into General Use and Why it
Gained in Popularity---it is Safe
From the earliest Bible times to the
present day nations of the countries
surrounding the Mediterranean have
made the oil of the olive one of their
principal articles of diet. It is used in
all cooking operations and replaces the
butter and lard of the nations in north
ern Europe. There is no question but
what a pure vegetable oil is a most
useful and healthy article of diet. We
never read of dyspepsia and troubles
of a similar nature among the people
of the Levant, doubtless because the
fat taken as a necessary part of a well
regulated diet is always - takEn as a
pure vegetable oil. In our own coun
try up to within the last few years
oil has been used but little as an ar
ticle of diet, except by Europeans who
have made their homes in our midst.
We have clung to the traditions of our
Saxon ancestors and used the hard fats
prepared from hogs and cattle. The
people of this country are beginning to
realize their mistake. Throughout our
southern States we have trees. small
it is true, but great in numbers, which
produce a fruit far more wonderful
than the olive, we refer to our cotton
plant. Its fiber clothes the world, its
seed yields an oil which is unrivaled
in sweetness and purity by the finest
product of the pressed olive.
Cotton seed oil was refined in small
quantities prior to the Civil war. It
found its way to Europe and came back
in fancy bottles mixed with olive oil.
In the early 80's the production of the
oil increased rapidly. Great quantities
finding their way to Chicago in mys
teriously marked packages, the contents
of which properly blended with other
material, traveled all over the world in
the form of lard.
About the year 1887 it was discovered
that the amount of lard shipped from
Chicago greatly exceeded the weight
of all the hogs received and an inves
tigation was instituted by Congress
which brought forth the information
that the product of the cotton seed was
entirely unobjectionable as an article
of diet and liable to be preferred by
many to that of the hog. For various
reasons our people have always been
prejudiced against: the oil itself, though
eating large quantities of it in the
form of lard compound. This preju
dice is no doubt largely due to the
faulty refining methods used by many
of the manufacturers who turned out
an oil of unpleasant flavor which gave
off very disagreeable odors in cooking.
Modern science has shed its rays on
this great product of our section and
the oil is now produced in enormous
quantities, absolutely free from odor
and flavor and almost colorless. Shipped
in barrels it finds its way into the larg
est bake shops of the country, where
it takes the place of many. tons of lard
and butter. Packed in hermitically
sealed cans it is invading kitchens of
our best families. It is making friends
everywhere. The greatly extended use
of cotton seed oil in the household has
added greatly to the wealth of our farm
ers by making a sure market for all
the seed which they can produce. This
rapid increase in the use of the oil has
only been made possible by improved
refining methods which were the re
sults of long, patient and expensive ex
periments by the leading company In
the business. Such experiments could
only be made by the combined re
sources centered in a large corporation
which can command the needed brains
and materials and furnish the neces
sary money outlay to conduct expen
sive experiments on a practical scale.
The farmer of the-south has no better
friend than the large companies who
are daily striving to improve the prod
uct of his cotton seed and extend the
use of cotton seed oil as a food product,
and the most successful of these com
panies in the manufacture of these
products is the Southern Cotton Oil
Company, whose works are at Savan
nah, Ga., and who have headquarters
and general offices in Columbia, S. C.,
