The following notice concerning the death

Ga., Times-Recorder :
"The an non oc*men t yesterday morning that
Benny Spann was dead, while not a sur?
prise, brought keen sorrow to tbe hearts of
many warm friends who knew and loved bim
and who had tenderly watched by his bedside
through the long weeks of illness and
Almost a stranger within our gates, he was
taken to tbe hearts and home of a generous
people, wbo nursed bim with utmost tender?
ness. It was a labor of love nobly per?
Mr Spann came here from Sumter, S. C.,
and was employed at the Central depot.
Several weeks ago he went with the Light
Infantry to Griffin and there was stricken
with typhoid fever. When the company
returned home Mr. Spann was carried to the
Hawkins House, but later, by invitation ot
Mr. and Mrs. 0. A. Coleman, was taken to
their beautiful home in Leeton.
Here he was tenderly nursed, many ladirs
and members of the Light Infantry lending
their assistance For awhile be r J lied, but
the fever had taken a strong hold upon him
and at 9'clock yesterday tbe end came.
The body was embalmed, and under mili?
tary escort was taken to the Central depot
arid sent to bis home Mr. J. N. Spoon, jr.,
an elder brother of the deceased and wbo was
with bini for several days before he died,
accompanied the body to Sumter, S. C. The
broken-hearted brother had the sympathies of
everyone in bis deep affliction.
Hardly had the train departed when a
telegram was received here announcing the
sudden death of the poor boy's mother, j
The news of the death of her boy was too i
mach for ber, and io the cemetery in the little !
Sooth Carolioa town to day, two coffins will j
lie side by side in a single grave and mother j
and son will be at rest for ever."

A stranger giving his name as J. J. j
Longest, from Richmond, Ya., and claiming
to be a K. of P., a Mason and also a Red
Man, was in this city yesterday, and under?
took to work members of the different frater?
nities for aid. He received help from several,
and about night was seen on the street glo?
riously drunk. It has been acertained that
he is an impostor, and those who gave him
a careful examination, found that he wa3 not
what be claimed to be. He is about 5 feet 10
inches, somewhat dark features, and wears a
brown mustache. He has been working the
same dodge in Wilmington and Charlotte,
and if the papers will pass him around, the
benevolently inclined may be saved from
bestowing their aid upon an impostor and a
man wbo is mean enough to try to get money
by falsehood to be spent for whiskey

The following is a report of observations
of the weather taken ai; Stateburg, by Dr. W.
W. Anderson, for the past week ending
June 24, 1894 :
Rains during the week have been very par?
tial and irregular ; over a few favored spots of
a few acres in extent tbs rainfall was plenti- :
ful, but as a general rule it has been exceed- !
iogly light and the need of it continues with
unabated or rather increased urgency for the j
relief of suffering vegetation. Indications j
for more plentiful rains are good to-day, 25th. i
St. Joseph's Academy,
j The Thirtieth Annual Commencement
; St. Joseph's Academy was held on last Thu
j day evening at tte Academy, and was i
: tended by a large number of patrons a
! friends-many from abroad,
i The program, which is published in fi
j below was rendered with a vim and en thu
j asm which were imparted to the audiencr
j large measure, making th? ent ente betwe
performers and hearers, perfect. Tbe aft<
noon was very warm, and the accoramod
tions insufficient to the need of the audien<
hut that was due less to the size of the hi
than to the magnitude of the audience, w
j always throng these distributions
Weo"8erved, on ?he stage, the Right Rf
H. P. Northrop, Bishcp of the Diocese, ai
Fathers Mouaghan ?nd McNeill of the clerg
Father MenHghan announced the hone
and Bishop Northrop bestowed them upi
the fair roDtestams The Bishop WHS dov
for ao address, but owing to the lateness
the hour, after the other exercises were co
eluded, be considerately refrained from deli
ering a formal address, contenting hims*
with a few witty mid pleasant informal r
marks, which received the unqualified appro
al or bis hearers.
Altogether, whether we consider the wor
accomplished by the pupils during the la
year or the quality of the music, or tl
general ensenble of the distribution, ti
Sisters have cause to congratulate tbemselvi
upon its success.
