Chief among the social festivities
of the Christmastide. was the enter?
tainment of the Matron s Book Club
on Friday afternoon, Dec. 24th by
Mrs. J. A< James. After dispensing
the usual^usiness, the members were
invited from the parlor into the
Drawing Room, beautifully decora?
ted with evergreens and holly; In the
further corner of the room had been
placed the appropriate Christmas tree
which when lighted shed Its Joyous
light over the heretofore dark room,
revealing Its glittering branches
bending under the weight of the
Christmas tokens extended by Mrs.
James to her sister members of the
Club. In accordance with a recent
rule, the hostess was permitted to
have present a few friends who were
not members of the club. Thej, too,
were well remembered on the
Christmas tree. From here, the
g vi est 9 were ushered Into the dining
room which decorated with holi;* and
lit with candles was most inviting to
the happy participants; place cards
consisting of old Santa's toys gave
them a place before the lovely table
from which they were to enjoy a de?
lightful salad course followed by Cocoa
and cake. It is conceded by those
present that the absent members
were decidedly unfortunate in not
being able to attend this meeting of

THE JAPANESE COOK CATCHES
eel before eyes of guest.
The Patron Choose* His Delicacy
Before Sitting Down.
Entering a Japanese restaurant,
a guest who wishes broiled eels and
rice Is led to a tank of squirming
fresh-water eels and bidden to point
out the object of his perference, says
a writer in The Delineator for Jan?
uary. The cook, who stands by, se?
lects the wriggling victim of his
choice, strikes Its head smartly upon
a wooden block and, squatting by
it, grasps the creature's neck, in?
serts a knife In the left side of the
vertebrae, and dexterously runs It
down to the tall, then rapidly ap?
plying his Instrument to the other
side of the backbone, repeats the
proces, leaving the eel split open.
Then, chopping the flattened eel
Into three-inch lengths, the pieces
are plunged Into boiling water to
make the skin tender, long bamboo
splints used as skewers are thrust
through them, and they are then
placed on rods over glowing charcoal
and broiled brown, being plunged
from time to time into a vessel that
contains old soy of the color and
consistency of molasses. These pre?
parations concluded, the steaming eels
again are drained and placed in red
lacquer boxes with rice and set be?
fore the customer.
We are told that the negroes ob?
ject to President Taft, which Is art
right so long as President Taft ob?
jects to them as office holders.?

A Houseful of Reasons.
Bishop Mallalieu, of the Methodist
Episcopal Church, always stood'.aa a
strong opponent to the inconsider?
able, and often Inconsistent salaries
that are paid the pastor by some
congregations amply able to pay
more ltberally. He told the follow?
ing personal reminiscence at a re?
"I once knew an excellent young
man who married shortly after he
entered the ministry. He was on a
small salary, but he seemed content?
ed and happy.
"Some twelve or fifteen years went
by after I last met him, and I had
rather lost sight of him?forgotten
him, as we will do sometimes?when,
unexpectedly, I met him in Boston,
well dressed, but not at all clerically.
"We shook hands. He said he was
"'What church?' I asked.
" 'Oh,' said he, 'no church?the
wholesale hat business.'
" 'But why did you leave the
Church?' I inquired solicitously. |
" 'For seven reasons,' he replied.
"'And what were they?' said I.
" 'A wife,' he answered, 'and six
children.' "?Success Magazine.
Explaining An Excuse.
(From the Ath.nta Journal.)
An Atlanta merchant has frequent
occasion to rebuke Ike, his darky
porter, for his tardiness in reporting
for duty in the morning. Ike Is al?
ways ready with a more or less in?
genious excuse. "You're two hours
late. Ike!" exclaimed the employer
one morning. "This sort of thing
must stop. Otherwise I'm going to
fire you. Understand?
"Deed, Mistah Edward," % repbel
Ike, "it wa'nt mah fault dis time.
Honest. I was kicked by a mule."
"Kicked by a mule? Well, even
if that were so it wouldn't delay you
for more than an hour. You'll have
to think of a better excuse than
that.' Ike looked aggrived.
"Mistah Edward," he continued
solemnly, "it might have been all
right ef dat mule kicked me in dis
direction, but he didn't?he kicked
me de odder way."

WHITE MAN LYNCHED.
Strings Up Murderer to Steam Pipe
Hurley, Va , Dee. 26.?Following
the killing here on Christmas eve of
Samuel Baker and the serious wound?
ing of his wife and two children by
the former's enemy, Henry Penning?
ton, a mob of 100 citizens late last
night took Pennington from an im?
provised jail where he had been In?
carcerated under heavy guard and
Pennington, who had been drink?
ing, picked a quarrel with Baker and
shot him while the latter was on his
way to a Sunday Christmas tree with
his wife, his two children and a friend
Wyatt Meadows. Seeing that he had
killed Baker, Pennington started to
run away. Mrs Baker called after
Pennlngton and implored him to help
her take the body home.
The ruse worked and Pennlngton
went back to the spot where his vic?
tim lay dead. Bent upon avenging the
deed. Mrs. Baker grabbed Penntng
ton's pistol from his pocket and shot
twice at him. Her aim was bad, but
she succeeded in wounding him in
the hand and thigh. Pennlngton re?
covered possession of the pistol and
then shot the woman and attempted
to kill Meadows, who was running
away, it is alleged, and the two chil?
Pennington then fled but was sur?
rounded by a posse on the outskirts
of the town later in the night. He
was captured after an exchange of
shot." with the officers, who badly
wounded him. Being too weak to
stand the journey to the Grudy jail,
15 miles distant over mountainous
country, Pennlngton was locked up in
the constable's house, but about 1
o'clock yesterday afternoon it was
thought advisable to remove him to
a boarding house, where he was put
under a strong guard.
Feeling against Pennington ran
high and m;iny covert threats of
lynching were hear a ?-urlng tho day.
Last midnight a band ci aoout luv
citizens wiletly organized, the guard
was overpowered and Pennington
ta'aen to the engine room of a lumber
mill, near by, and hanged to a steam
pipe. The body was riddled with bul?
lets and was then left hanging until
9 o'clock this morning, when it was
Baker's funeral was held today, but
his wife was too badly wounded to
attend. Baker was a son-in-law of
George Meadows, two of the victims
of the sextuple murder here several
months ago for which Howard Little
has been sentenced to die in the ele?
ctric chair on January 6.
Satin Oharmeuae Excellent for Eve?
An evening gown for a woman of
moderate means has to be a more or
less versatile affair that will appear
equally well under a dozen different
conditions and circumstances, says
Helen Berkeley-Lloyd in The Deline?
ator for January. It must go to a
dinner one night and the opera the
next. It has to answer Invitations
to theatres and restaurants and card
It must be sufficiently smart-look?
ing to make a woman feel well-dress?
ed, but not too pronounced in style or
color to attract attention to tho fact
that It Is doing duty for half a dozen
Satin Charmeuse is an excellent
material for a gown of this kind, for
it has more endurance than any of
the chiffons or tissues. The annun?
ciation or Delia Bobbin blues with
black Ch?ntilly lace answer admir?
ably for an all-round evening gown.
I saw one the other day in which
the bodice was made with a round
semi-decollete neck, and a gathered
chemisette or modestie of Chantllly.
The waist itself was cut out into a
rather deep square at the back, but
In front the lower edge of the open?
ing was broken into two large curves
or scallops. The short sleeves were
of the lace caught in to the upper
arm just above the elbow by em?
broidered bands of the Charmeuse.
If common report is not a lie, li?

expected and as predicted It Is next
to Impossible to obtain evidence that
will convict. The people who patron?
ize the blind tigers will not betray
them, and while the police and other
public officials may be certain that
liquor Is being sold, they cannot ob?

ef the courts, and the worst of it Is
conditions are sure to grow worse
rather than better as time passes.
HUE LAST BANQUET,
The Passing of the Jervey House?
I/>ng landmark. Coinmorato4 by
the Faitliful Friends of Uncle .)Vn"
The Jervey House was the scene
of a gracious hospitality the other
evining extended to his guests and
friends as a farewell supper prepara?
tory to his*? temporary retirement
Lfrom the management of the Jervey
House, by it's proprietor, Mr. James
A bountiful repast awaited the
guests and amid reminiscences and
from "jest to earnest" the old days
were recalled that were spent hap?
pily under the roof presided over by
that cultured, lovabie and charitable
woman, Mrs. Vermelle Jervey, the
wife of its big hearted, energetic and
always lovable host, Mr. James. E.
Among the assembled guests were:
Dr. H. J. McLaurin, who had served
with the host of the evening on
Virginia's bloody battle fieid and
"faced fearful odds"; the Hon.
Thomas E. Richardson, Probate
Judge of this county; the Hon. H.
Lee Scarborough, Ex-Treasurer; Mr.
and Mrs. W. H. Sykes, Mr. and Mrs.
Archer, Mr. Thomas R. Dunlap, of
Baltimore; Messrs. Levalle Jackson,
Mood Brown, George Burkett, Sher?
iff W. H. Epperson and wife, and
Mr. Isaac M. Loryea.
After the cloth was cleared and
coffee served, Mr. Mood Brown acted
as toastmaster and called upon Mr.
Scarborough, who responded feellng
!y of days iong gone by. Judge
Richardson spoke of his associations
with Mr. JerVey, covering over a
third of a century, and Mr. Isaac M.
Loryja, by request of all present,
spoke as follows:
Fellow Guests of the Jervey House:
In arising this evening it brings
pain to me that the pleasant re?
lationship existing for many years
is to be severed by the temporary re?
tirement of that lovable, genial, big
hearted, boniface. Mr. James E. Jer?
vey. who has served the public so
faithfully and so well.
Farquhar In his comedy "The Bea
ux's Stratagem" introduces one bon?
iface a landlord or an inkeeper as it
was termed in those days in old
England in those days the Jolly land?
lord, but in the boniface we have not
alone a jolly landlord, but one whose
heart always responded to the sor?
rows and privations of others, in all
the years that he and his admirable l.
and devoted helpmater^^^passea |
?vway, no one was turned away from j
the Jervey House, but In many in-1
stances received the loving and kind J
ministrations of both man and wife.
So while a landmark is passing away, J
for the Jervey House has been Iden- I
titled with the history and the pro-1
gress of Sumter since the cessation of I
hostilities between the States. I
Briefly it will not be out of place I
to recall certain events connected 1
with the house, for the Jervey House, I
in Sumter and Clarendon counties, I
are as "household words.'
In the year 1869 Mr. Jervey was I
in the employ of that old time con- I
servative merchant and excellent
citizen. Mr. J. T. Solomons, whose I
death was so much lamented. Mr. I
Solomons introduced him to a gentle- I
man In 1873, Mr. Clarence Knowles, I
now an Influential and permanent In- I
surance man of Atlanta, Ga., and re" I
quested him to become his host, which J
Mr. Jervey did with his usual hos- I
pitality which has always character- I
lzed him. His guest was so charmed
that on leaving he asked his host if
he could not do something for the
comfort and accommodation of the
traveling men. Mr. Jervey stated f
that it was almost impossible as he
did not have the requisite capital*
But the seed was planted, and the |
energetic and indefatigable, our hon- I
ored host, bought out at 12 o'clock
the next day a hotei situated on
Main street, in the old Hulbert's I
brick house opposite the present
Sumter Hotel, with only one negro to j
assist him, by the name of Jacob I
Mlddleton, since dead, and yet with I
indormltable energy and Industry, he I
accommodated 30 guests nightly. j
Later, that gallant soldier, patriot
and gentleman, Gen. E. W. Moise,
built the Jervey House near Epper
sins stables, which our host ran suc?
cessfully for 15 years, and enjoyed
practically all the patronage, and j
many traveling men to the number of
75 to 100 gratefully spent Sundays
with this good old landlord and bask?
ed in the sunshine of his generous
His next move was to the China
House, now designated Hotel Sum?
ter, and conducted it for 11 years,
and then removed the present Jer?
vey House, corner East Liberty and
Harvin streets wfiere his oid friends
clung to and abided with him. the
genial Sheriff of Sumter, the scholar?
ly and firm friend the Judge of Pro?
bate of the County who was his guest
over a third of a century. And the

i Tiny Tim would say. shared his hospi?
table board. So, the speaker would
take occaaslon to thank the brave
and gallant old man who has done
so much in the cause of humanity,
and who has suffered so much re

In Him who doeth all things wel

CATHEDRAL OF sT. JOHN.
Progress on New York's Great R?
From the New York Tlajaa^ ?'u,
The great Cathedral on -j?^fJfhr
side Heights i? nearlng completio>
faster than most of us imagine. Fc
years it has stood, a magniflcen
skeleton, dominating the upper par
of the city, with only the crypt suf
ficiently far advanced for services
but now the main building is nearl
half finished, and it is expected the
services will be held in it abou
Easter time. The choir is quit
finished, except for the reTedos, stal|
and mosaic flooring, and these sir
being pot in now. The crossing ttn
der the central dome has been en
closed with temporary walls unti
such time as the nave can be adde?;
and the Cathedral is ready to hoi
even in its present state, 8,000 per
sons?a larger audience than an
church in the city, except St. Pa
rick's can find room for?" Two of th
seven chapels are quite finished, an
thli week it was announced that
third would be given in memory <
the late Bishop Potter.
When St. John's is completed
will rank as the fourth largest Ca
thedral in the world. First come
St. Peters', nearly twice as larg
as any other church, covering 227,
000 square feet; then Seville, wltl
124,000 feet; Milan, with 107,00(
and fourth, St John* the Divine
with about 100,000. A new cathe
dral at Liverpool will be about a
large as St. John's; then comes Co
logne, with /84.000; York, 72,000
AmtejrfO. 71.4JO; St Sophia, Con

It will not be possible to accuse Ne
York of not having a cathedral equ:
to its dignity as the metropolis c
America, for not only In size doc
St. John's rank with the wonders (
the world. No medieval cathedrt
was ever built with more painstak
