EDWARD BUTI.ER CAPTURED.
A WhdIe Man Charged With Grand I.arceny
is Brought In by sheriff Buford.
Sheriff M. M. Buford for some time
has been on the look-out for Edward
Butler, a white man, who is charged
with grand larceny, having been ac
cused of appropriating to his own, use
several articles of jewelry, etc., to the
value of sover p20, belonging to persons
living in West End, this.city.
The warrant was placed in the Sheriff's
bands and he has been persistent in his
fforts to capture his man. He had a
detective in Augusta to help him and
n the 26th the fllowing was received:

When the sheriff arrived in Augusta
the authorities were in the act of try
ing the prisoner for some offense com
mitted there, but his requisition papers
were honored and Butler is now in jail
here awaiting trial.
When Sheriff Buford gets behind a
man he leaves no stone unturned to
catch him, and he generally succeeds.
The Editor Sick.
The editor of The Herald and News
has been sick and confined to his bed

office for a few minutes yesterday. It
is hoped that he will be completely re
covered in a few days.
A False Alarm.
Yesterday at noon the fire alarm was
sounded and the fire laddies respondet

fire was reported. but it proved to be a
false alarm. Persons should be very
particular in sending in alarms-i

FARWEELL TO HIS CONGREGATION.
Rev. W. I. Herbert Preaches His Last Ser
mon as Pastor of Central Methodist
Although the weather was very disa
greeable, a large congregation attend
ed the evening services in the Central
Methodist church on Sunday. It was
the first evening service held in this
church, and it was the occasion of Rev.
Mr. Herbert's last sermon as pastor.
Mr. Herbert has served this congrega
tion for the past four years and will be
assigned other work by the Conference
which convenes in this church tomor
row. That he has been acceptable to
his people and that he holds a warm
place in their hearts is evidenced by
the expressions of deep and genuine re
gret at his approaching departure
heard on every side. The handsome
new church building in which he
preached his last sermon, and the church
roll stand as monuments to his ability
and his faithfulness. These are the
results that can be seen with human
eyes. But these are small indeed com
pared to the greatness of the work
which he has done-work whose results
can only be seen with the eye of Om
niscience-in strengthening hands in
That was the subject of his sermon
on Sunday evening; the strengthening
of hands in the Lord. He chose his
text from Samuel 23:16: "And Jona
than Saul's son arose, and went to David
in the wood, and strengthened his
hand in God." The main thought
which Mr. Herbert sought to impress
was that every life has an untold in
fluence either for good or for evil, and
that the influence of every life should
be so directed that it will do its part,
however feeble, in the uplifting of
mankind. He had come to the conclu
sion that there was only one thing in
life worth while, and that was to learn
to strengthen hands in the Lord; to sit
at the feet of the Great Teacher and
to receive that wisdom which comes
only from on high- that wisdom which
enables one to make his life a blessing
to all with whom he comes in contact
in the earth life.
This was the fourth or fifth time that
he had come to this point in his life,
when to a congregation he must say
farewell. He had had one purpose
during the last four years, and God be
ing his judge, only one, and that was to
strengthen hands in God. If he had
failed in that th'e woi-k of four years
was a failure.
'There was nothing that could possi
bly take the place of that work. The
Apostle Paul writing one,.his epistles
said, "Ye are my joy." Paul meant
that his highest joy was the uplifting
of .his people. If any joy was to come
into the speaker's life from his four
years in Newberry, it was when some
one came to him and said, "Bro. Her
bert, you have strengthened my hand
While he rejoiced in the belief that
some had been uplifted during these
four years, he believed the truth was
that some were further from the light
than ever before. This after his four
years of preaching. He did not un
derstand it, perhaps he never would
understand it, but before God and be
fore man he was here to say that his
only purpose had been to help. And
no higher joy had ever come into his
liethat when members of his congre
gation had come to him and told him he
had really helped them.
He prayed God's richest blessings
upon tht congregation and expressed
the earnest and sincere wish that the
next four years would be the brightest
in the history of the Newberry church.
-He closed with an exhortation to go
forward in the work of strengthening
hands in the Lord-the greatest work
in the world, and the only work that is
Mr. Herbert will probably preach in
Newberry again the second Sunday
morning and evening in December.
A fine crop of cabbage was raised in
this part of the State this year. The
North Carolina cabbage dealers made
failures this year in comparison with
some of the South Carolina amatuers.
Mr. J. W. L. Arthur, of Helena,
weighed one Saturday that he raised in
his garden that weighed 164 pounds.
Who can beat it?
Conference Visitors Arriving.

consumption for several months, at his
home in West End, died Saturday even
