That Proved Fatal-Honeymoon's
Sad Termination.
The Stite.
Fort Mill, Aug. 14. --Here, in the
extreme nort hern part of the State,
not far from where the famous
'Squiro Bailes conduets his Gretna
Green establishment, there has in
the last few days occurred a romance,
followed by a tragedy, that reads
almost like fiction. On Sunday eve
ning last 'Squire McElhaney per
formed one of the class of marriages
that has made 'Squire Bailes famous.
Two days later the coroner was in
vestigating the caus of the death of
the happy bridegroom.
On last Sunday evening, having
just performed the ceremony making
a couple from the village of the Fort
Mill Manufacturing company man
and wife, 'Squire McElhany Was
called upon to marry Miss Ella Ram
sey and Mr. J. It. Norman, both of
the same village. There was serious
parental objnetion to this marriage,
and thereby hangs the tragic tale.
After the marriage Norman and
his bride returned to :he home of her
parents, who hai bitterly opposed
the marriage. finmediately there
was a first class row, in the progress
4 of which Norman severely abused
i-and cursed the girl's parents, his
manner peing extremely violent and
threatening. The girl's father re.
ported the .matter to the town au
thorities and on Monday morning
Officer R. G. Johnson went in search
of the young husband. He learned
that Norman had just left, going in
the direction of Rtock Hill, eight
miles distant, with the Catawba river
between them. Then it was that
Officer Johnson brought out his
bloodhound and gave chase. Strik
ing the trail of the fleeing man, there
was an exciting chase botween man
and brute. As soon as the Catawba
river was reached the animal went
straight to the shoro and, hesitating
not a moment, plunged in and swam
to the west bank. There he again
endeavored to strike the trail but
failed. Johnson had reached the
river by this time, and failing to find
the young man along the banks, he
was convinced that ho was hiding
behind a rock cliff midway of the
stream. After examining this cliff
and failing to find hi 1 man, Johnson
abandoned the search, Inking his dog
and returning home. On Tuesday
parties along the river discovered the
body of a man floating dlown at ream.
They examined it anid found that
it was theL body of t he bridegroom of
less thani a dayv. It w as pulled
ashoreo and taken to a po(init near the
home of MIr. H-Ian ks Jonces, who is
repnlted to be a relhative, of Ablrahaim

was rest inig awaiting the arrival of

Cynthiana, Ky., August 14 -Th
jury in the case of Curtis Jett ano
Thomas White charged with th
assassination of James B. Marcum
at Jackson, Ky., returned a verdic
of guilty today, fixing the punish
ment of each at life imprisonment
The verdict was returned at a timi
when there were but few persons ir
the Court room. The only attorne
present was County Attorney Web

comparative indifference and calm
ness. White, who has been ap
parently under a severe strain durmn
the trial, flushed up and his eye
filled with tears. The verdict oc.
casioned little surprise. The only
question which caused the delay, il
is said, was whether to make the
punishment death or life imprison.

JEFFRIES STILL CHAMPION.

Mechanics' Pavilion, San Fran,

champion heavyweight of the world,
played with Jim Corbett for nine
rounds and a half tonight and then
Corbett's seconds motioned to
Referee Graney to stop the light in
order to -ave thoiK man from need
less punishment. The end came
shorily after the beginning of the
tenth round when Jefferies planted
one of his terrific left swings on por

quered John L. Sullivan dr9pped to
the floor in agony and the memorable
scene at Carson City when B-b
Fitzsimmons landed his solar plexus
blow wis almost duplicated. This
time, however, Corbett struggled to
his feet and again faced his gigantic
adversary. With hardly a moment's
hesitation Jefferies swung his right

FOR SCHOOL LIBRARIiS.
Superintendent Martin Issues Circular t(
Superintendents and Teachers.
Columbia, August 17.-The fol
lowing circular letter has been issued
from the office of the State Superin.
tendent of Education:
"To County Superintendents, Trus.
tee. and Teachers:
' Allow me to call your attention
to the urgent need of libraries in our
comIon 1chools. Many of our
schools have well arranged working
libraries but. hundreds of them have
no provision whatever for the thou.
sands of bright pupils who are hun
gering and thirsting for something
more than is furnished by the daily
routine of text book work. And,
then, there are thousands of children
who spend much precious time in
wanton idleness which might be
profitably spent in reading the best
li'erature. In addition to its dis
ciplinary features, a small library
will be used by a judicious teacher
for the purpose of inspiring pupils
to a wider outlook and a nobler life.
In fact, I have observed the work
ings of some small libraries in coun
try schools recently and have noticed
that such libraries work a wholesome
influence on the entire community.
They give subjects of community im.
terests and prevent gossip and disa
greeuents.
"It is scarcely necessary to argue
the benefits of school libraries. One
has only to go into a school room
and hear pupils recite, or examine
some sets of examination papers, to
find out by general intelligence and
excellence of eixpressiotn the students
who have had access to good books
and who have been readers. The
is a vast amount of ignorance of cur
rent knowlodge and information.
Many homes are not provided with
newspapers, m11agazines or any litera
ture which will teach living history
and widen the horizon of the life of
the bright boys and girls who ona
nate from them.
"E very school ought to have its
dictionary and, if possible, its ency
clopedia-and yet how many have
neither? After a library has been
begun in a school, it is easy for it to
accumulate, and soon many other
valuable books of reference and paral
lel reading will be collected which
enable teachers to train for research,
culture and scholarship. I have
known a teacher in a country school
to raise $10 or $12 with an enter
tainment, to start a library and then
the trustees providled a nice book.
case with a lock and key. Gifts of
book'i were made by various pub)lic
sp)iritedl peop)le and that case also re
ceived various papers and1 mamgazmoes.
The library grew to such proportions
hat the community decided to build
a new and more elegant house to
harmonize with the newv book case
andl now books. Other equipment
was purchased to match and, in ad
dition to reforming the physical sur
roundlings of that schoolhouse, that
library is working a very beneficent
reformation of a whole school dis
trict. All this was brought abiout
by the efl'ct of a zealous, useful
teacher.
"Some library equi pmnent is neces
sary ini order that the teacher may
teach pupils how to read and whal
to read. Tihne whole course of
pupil's life may,bo changed by giv
ing him a love for readling and
taste for good books. Newspapers
magazines and other periodicals ox
ert ai great educational influnenice, ami
those might weill find space m a well
ordered book-case in a public school
Some are especially adapted and
teacher can use t hem with wonderfu
resul ts.
"It is my desire that we got. al
least a small library started in all oi
the schools in our state which have
no such provision, ari I ask foi
your co-operat ion in this very imp~or
tant and far reachlineg work. I have
asked D)r. JIas. P'. lKinard, of Win
