rion yesterday evening, which resulted iu
Deputr Sheriff l. l. Scherer getting
shot. A man, evidently crazy or drunk,
came into town about 2 o'clock armed
with a rovolver and commenced walking
around the streets intimidating everyone.
The deputy sheriff was telepouhed for
and started out to arrest tho man. As
soon as Soberer got within range the man
fired at him, the bullet taking elfect in
his neck, indicting a very dangerous if
not fatal wound. After shooting Scherer
the man started up the street agaiu and
commenced shooting at everyone he saw,
fortunately none of the Bhots taking
effect. Men armed with pistols and guns
were firing at him on? fully twenty-five
shots were fired before one hit him.
Finally a load of shot struck him in the
back and on his dropping his pistol sev?
eral citizens rushed out and overpowered
htm. He was taken to jail aud locked up
securely. The man claimed to be from
Craig county and said some ono had killed
his brother and he pioposed to get re?
venge. It is thought that he was crazy.
His name could not be ascertained last
night, as he was a stranger in Marlon
nnd no one knew him. The physicians
who examined Mr. Scherer's wounds say
that he may recover.

THE TENT MEETING.
Rev. William Lunsford Preached a Most
The exercises at the Baptist tent meet?
ing Inst night were of a 'moit interesting
character. The attends nco was la rue and
all present showed the deepest Interest in
Rev. WiIlium Lunsford preached n most
impressive discourse, taking as his texr
the (Ith chapter of Second ^Samuel. The
subject was "Religion."
The speaker said every man hod his re?
ligion and his God. He spoke of the va?
rious false, ii'li<>ions and then of the re?
ligion of Jesus Christ, which he said was
the only true religion. He then spoke of
tho various evils of a man's Hie, and
proved that they could only he corrected
by that religion which appealed directly
to the best instincts of man nnd required
a change of heart. He then spoke of what
tho religion of Jesus Christ consisted, and
said that all must know the will of God
as revealed in His word, and that we must
put these 'conditions into practice, and
that we must know and keep the cause
for the sake of Jesus Christ, who came
from God, aud in whom all must trust.
He then gave reasons why every one
should embrace the religion of Jesus
Christ. He asked if the religion of morals
and the various false religions would
avail a man when he came to his death
bed. He alluded to the fact that the nrk
of the Lord was lodged in the house of
Oladedom and said that on account of
this ho and his whole house were blessed.
So. he said, the religion of Jesus Christ
would be a blessing to tho heart of the
man who embraced that religion.
Further, he said this religion was the
only thing that would stand before death.
It was not only a blessing, but a gain
forever nnd ever. The neglect of religion
brings disaster and the embracing of it
brings peace, joy and happiness In this
life and eternal pleasure in tho life that
is to come.
The who'e discourse was nn able aud
eloquent one and did a great deal of good
for the cause which he advocated.
Dr. Brougbton followed In a short and
impressive address on the same line. He
alluded to the earthquake and dwelt Im?
pressively on the recent seismic disturb?
ances in this locality.
He was followed by Rev. Thomas J,
Shtpmau, pastor of the First Baptist
Clinch, who closed the discussions of the
evening, after which the meeting ad?
journed until 8 o'clock this evening.
