Verdict Against Mrs. Stone and Her
Son Set Aside,
On Account of Induced Talking Among
Two Jurors, AVlio Are Held to An
swer for Contempt of Court.
Circuit Court adjourned last Satur
day, after quite a busy session of
four weeks. There were about 70
true bills found by this court, and a
large number or trangressors were
either sent to the county work-house
or xiven berths in the state peniten
tiary. We announced last week that in
the case of the state against Mrs.
Mary Stone and her son Walker, the
jury bad returned a verdict of guilty
and given them ten months in the
work-house, and that through their
attorneys, Messrs. Figures and Pad
gett, the defendants had entered a
motion for a new trial. This action
was based upon the misconduct of
two jurors Messrs. J. D. Wortham
and Wm. Reeves. Theconrtgranted
the new trial and ordered that the
two jurors be attached and held to
answer for contempt of court at the
first day of the next term. The
charges against the offending juror
is that they gav testimony against
the prisoneis that did not come
through the proper channel, the
court. The other case against Mrs.
Stone and her son, for larceny, was
continued until the next term of
Purp Harbison (colored) was sent
to the work-house for 10 months and
Jim Harris (colored) to the peniten
tiary for 3 years, for larceny and
house-breaking. These offenders
broke into Mr. Sam Nichols' store
at Carter's Creek sometime during
the past winter, and appropriated
the contents of the cash drawer to
their own use.
Jeff Hood was given 6 months in
the work-house and charged up with
the cost in the case, the charge
against him being larceny of a
watch some time ago.
The case of State vs. E. E. Smith,
for libel, was nolle prossed. This
is the case in which Mr. W. E. Bos
tick, principal of the Columbia Pub
lic School, was prosecutor, and has
attracted a great deal of attention
for sometime. Mr. Smith retracted
what he had said about Mr. Bostick,
and Mr. Bostick allowed the case to
(irand Jury' Itepurt.
The Grand Jury returned the fol
lowing report to Judge Patterson :
"We, the Grand Jury for the May
term of the Circuit Court, beg leave
to make the following report, to-wit:
"The committee to visit the County
Asylum report, that after careful ex
amination they find everything
about the county farm in good con
dition, with minor exceptions. Thoy
find that there are some improve
ments or repairs needed on the dwell

in need of a new roof. It is leak

would recommend the repair at
"They made inquiry of inmates as
to food 'and treatment and heard no
complaint on that line.
"They found the crop on the farm

"The committee appointed to ex
amine tiie otllcial bonds of the vari
ous county officers, after careful and
critical examination, report said
bonds in good, solvent condition, so
far as they could learn. Ibis same
committee also examined the county
jail and found it in satisfactory con
dition, so far as the keeping thereof
is concerned, but that some repairs
are needed on the roof."'
The report concludes as follows:

thanks to His Honor, Judge E. I).

in his Mst year. He leaves two
children; Mr. John Moore Jr., of
Lasea, and Mrs. W. N. Wright.
Deceased had been in ill health for
sometime past, and all that loving
hands could do was done for him,
but it was of no avail. His funeral
was preached Saturday morning bv
the lievs. D. C. Kelley and W. T.
I'ssery. We extend to the bereaved
family our heartfelt sympathy in
their sad hour, and pray that an All-
Wise Providence may watcu over

the blest, where all is joy and peace
to those that love the Lord.
The infant child of Mr. and Mrs.
N. M. Jones, aged 5 months, was
called to its heavenly home last
Tuesday morning. It had been
a treat sufferer for sometime, and
all that medical science and loving
hands of tender parents could do,
was done for that sweet babe, but
Jesus came and called it to himself
to live with him forever.
"To us a short time lent,
Although so very dear,
God soon recalled the gift he gave,
And left us weeping here."
The funeral was preached at the
residence Wednesday evening at 4
o'clock, by the Rev. A. L. Davis,
after which its remains were taken
to beautiful Rose Hill, and there
laid away to rest until the resurrec
tion morn. We extend to the
bereaved family our heartfelt sym
pathy in this trying hour, and for
consolation, point them to the words
of Jesus when he said, "Suffer
little children to come unto me, and
forbid them not; for of suolv is the
kingdom of.heaven." Tramp.
