Newberry on the 9th of May.
Adjutant 0. L. Schumpert, through
whom the invitation was extended, on
Wednesday recei ve(d the following letter
of acceptance from Dr. Scherer:
Hon. 0. L. Schumpe; t, Newberry,
S. C.- My I )ea r Sir: The invitation
signed by your:;elf a'id others honors
me, and I am eager to accept on two
conditions: 1. That it will not be ob
jectionable if I elaborate from an ad
dress that was printed in the News and
Courier last Su,uday entitled "Teachers
in Gray"; 2. That I can reach home in
time for my Sunday work Without
tiaveling late: than Saturday mid
night.
Please let me hear from you at once,
etc.
Yours very truly,
Jas. A. B. Scherer.
Under these conditions Dr. Scherer
will arrive in Newbarry either Friday
or on the early train Saturday morning,
and the address will be delivered in time
that he may leave Newberry at 3.10
Saturday afternoon.
Dr. Scherer is one of the foremost
preachers in the Southern Lutheran
Church, and has a reputation for bril
liancy of thought and oratory enjoyed
by few young men. Those who had
the pleasure of reading the address re
ferred to which was published in the
Sunday issue of the News and Courier
are in some manner prepared to judge 1
the excellence of the address which Dr.
Scherer will deliver in Newberry.
As soon as it is definitely known at
what time Dr. Scherer will arrive in
Newberry the time for the address will
be announced. The various committees
will be appointed by the Sons and
Daughters probably this afternoon.
Baby Took Deadly Drug.
The youngest child of Mr. F. J. I.us
sell, aged about sixteen months, swab
lowed a quantity of a deadly drug on
Monday evening, and during the whole
of Monday night the little boy hovered
between life and death. During the i
whole night Dr. W. G. Houseal remained r
continuously. The battle was against
fearful odds, but was successful, and
the child lived.
The bottle was thought to be out of
reach of the children, but in some way
the little boy managed to get hold of it
and was discovered in the act of drink
ing. Dr. Ilouseal was immediately
,ummonced, and with the success men
tioned.
Prof. Walter Peterson.
Prof. Walter S. Peterson, who has
been teaching at Sally, has declined an
offer from the Sumter Military Academy 1
and also from the school at B3lackville,
preferring to remain at Sally, wvhere he
has given such satisfaction that the pa
trons of his school have prevailed upon
him to agree to remain wvith them fori
three years. |
Prof. Peterson is a son of Col. W. G.
* Peterson, of the Longshore section of (<
this county, and has many friends
throughout Newbprry County who willj
be glad to know that he is meeting withj
such success in his chosen profession. |

Camp Sons Confederate Veterans will
be held in the court house at 5.30 o'clock
this afternoon. Some very important|
business, including the election of re

of Dickert's History of Kershaw's Bri--||
gadle, and who is wvell known in this|
county and throughout the State. Miss|
Dickert's many friends here will be
glad to know that she is being so hap
p)ily entertained during her visit to a
sister State:
TfennIille, Ga., April 28.-Miss Gussie1
D)ickert, one of Newberry, S. C. 's, I
charming daughters, who is visiting her 4
sister, Mrs. Geo. T. Dickert, of this|

DISPBNSARY LAW VIOLATORS.
Constable Bison Arrests a White Man and
Seizes a Gallon of Liquor at
Whitmire.
Constable J. R. Eison while at Whit
mire on Wednesday succeeded in making
one arrest for violation of the dispen
sary law and seizing one gallon of
liquor.
The man arrested is a white man,
John Metts. Constable Eison was
standing in a crowd when Metts walked
up to a gentleman, delivered him a
quart of whiskey and received a dollar.
It seems that the party had sent for
the liquor before Mr. Eison got to
Whitmire, and that Metts did not know
Mr. Eison as a constable and delivered
the liquor in his presence. Metts was
arrested on the spot and carried before
Magistrate Fant, who committed him
to jail. He failed to give bond and is
still in jail.
Metts' story of the affair is that the
gentleman to whom he delivered the
liquor had asked him to go overand buy
him a quart from some negroes who
were selling. That he went and paid
for the liquor, and was simply being
paid in return when he delivered it.
He says he will engage attorneys and
right the case to a finish.
The liquor which Mr. Eison seized
was one gallon, shipped to Lewis Iland.
A. diligent search failed to disclose the
dentity of Lewis Iland, and no one
laimed the package.

by theAssociate Reformed Presbyterians

tion of a new church building to take
the place of Thompson Street. The
movement has been agitated for some
time and the efforts of those in charge
have met with a gratifying success.
A new church building, of the char
acter contemplated, will be a source of
pride both to the congregation and the
city, and will be in keeping with the
spirit of progress manifested by the
city's other churches during the past
several years.
Davis-Hinnant.
The following is from the Ridgeway
correspondence of The State of a
recent date. Mr. Davis is a son of
Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Davis, of this
city:
At 8.30 o'clock on Wednesday eve
ning at the Baptist church, Miss Lula
Hinnant, daughter of Mr. W. Y. Hin
nant, was married to Mr. Dan Davis of
Chester.
The church had been tastefully dec
orated with garlands of green, tied with
white ribbon love knots, palms, ferns
and bright-leaved begonias, making an
effective background for the tableau.
The bride came in with her maid of
honor and the groom with his best man,
Mr. Erlich of Chester. On reaching the
chancel the bride and groom paused
beneath a white silk canopy, and the
Rev. D. C. Freeman, former pastor of
this church, in a solemn manner pro
nounced them man and wife.
The bride was tastefully gowned in
white organdie trimmed with ribbon and
lace. The maid of honor, Miss May
Hinnant, sister of the bride wore white
organdie and lace.
The ushers were Messrs. Joseph Par
ker, Frank Hinnant, John Wilson and
Herbert Ruff, Jr.
After the ceremony the bridal party
and a few friends wero entertained by
the parents of the brii
Chester will be the home of Mr. and
Mrs. Davis.
Known In Newberry.
J. A. Wright, the young man who
attempted to commit suicide in a hotel
at Greenville this week by opening the
veins in his arms and cutting his throat,
an account of which appears elsewhere
in this paper, is a brother of Robert T.
Wright, who was engaged in the butcher
business here with Mr. Cabaniss during
1898 and 1899. Mr. Wright is pleasantly
remembered in Newberry, where dur
ing his stay he made many friends. He
is now manager of the dispensary in
Athens, Ga., which position he ac
cepted at the request of citizens after a
scandal in the dispensary affairs. His
brother, the young man who attempted
to end his life, is also remembered by
meveral in Newberry.
Only Two More Games.
There will be only two more games
of base ball on the college diamond this
season. The next will come on Monday,
the 4th, at which time Nlewberry will
cross bats with the College of Charles
t;on. This will be followed by the last
game of the season here with Clemson
:m Wednesday, May 6th.
The College of Charleston has a good
team, and the Charlestonians will put
up a good game. Everybody knows
what kind of ball the Clemson Tigers
play. The score here last year at the
end of ten hard-fought innings was 1
to 0 in their favor.
Caldwell-Brown
Mr. Ben H-. Caldwell and Miss Mattie
Brown, daughter of Col. Simms Brown,
of the Caldwell section of the county,
were married at the residence of the
bride's father on Wednesday. The
ceremony was performed by Rev. Chas.
M. Boyd, of Prosperity.
Mr. Davidson in Charleston.
Dr. J1. R. Davidson, assistant p)ost
master at Newberry, wvho has been in
the city for several days, returned home
last night. tie is well known here,
having served as deputy marshal for
one term, but got out of that rather
strenuous office to seek a more quiet
retreat in the Newberry postoffice.
While serving as deputy marshal Dr.
Davidson made a splendid record as a
man of daring and whenever he was
sent after a desperado he did not return
empty handed. Once or twice he went
into the mountain regions for moon
shiners. With a bullet-proof coat and
a rifle he defied the whiskey-making
frpternity and captured the dare-devils
right off the reel. Some of his exploits
would have made Old Sleuth look like a
jumping-Jack. When it came to chas
ing bandits he could do it "to iuent the
ears." After being in many "engage
ments" he escaped without a scar. It
came to pass finally that the wild men
took to the caves as soon as he reached
the foot of the mountains. --News and

A REMINISCENT LBTTBR
A Former Newberrian, Now of Alabama
Who Served Under Capt Jno. M.
Kinard In The Great Confilct.
The following letter from a former
Newberrian, Rev. G. A. Hough, now
pastor of the Phoenix City, Ala., Pres
byterian church, was received last week
by Mr. Jno. M. Kinard. Capt. Kinard
to whom the letter refers was the fa
ther of Mr. Jno. M. Kinard and of Mrs.
E. H. Aull:
"I chanced to see today in The Her
ald and News your notice of the meet
ing of the John M. Kinard Camp on
Wednesday next. I have long been
away from my native and much loved
county and State, but I feel that I am
a living member of that camp, though
in a different State ---named, as it is, for
one whose precious memory I cherish
and love, my captain, the bravest of the
brave; yet who had a heart of tender
ness and sympathy for the highest and
the lowest; principles of true honor
which made him great; whose commands
to his men echoed the tenderness of his
nature and inspired them with confi
dence, making them give willing sub
mission and cheerful obedience on every
occasion.
"My heart yearns for the scenes of
my boyhood, and one of the sacred spots
that I would visit within the limits of
the old home land, with a vase of flow
ers from the richest garden, would be
the mound beneath which rests all that
is mortal of the brave Jno. M. Kinard,
who laid his life upon the altar of his
country for the right.
"Accept this, if you please, as a brief
expression of the honor and the love
which I bear to the wise and gracious
commander of Company F. 20th 4. C.
V., of which I was a member. And
may the principles which prompted the
establishment of your camp go down to
unborn generations, and be perpetuated
forever."
Rev. Mr. Hough has many relatives
living in Newberry county who will be
glad to note the above expression of
his love for a man whose meimory is so
highly respected by the people of this
section and of this State.
