A preliminary, in the case of Mabry
charged witb having shot Superintendent
Shipp of the factory on Friday
evening was held by Magistrate Cathcart
on Monday.
From the State's side of the matter,
it'appears .that Mabry was-provoked
with ZJy,j for having fined his
brother, aud finally invited Shipp to
fight him, which invitation was declined,
and drew hi3 pistol and fired. I
Mr. Shipp said that be thinks the first
ball struck him about the ear. "One
of the wounds is above the ear just
under the edge of the hair. The ether
one is on the lower part of the neck.
Another is in the neck. It seems to
be the scrape of a pistol ball, bnt I aji

J. JEI. M. Beaty, director of the
Clemson Textile School in South
Carolina visited ns a few days ago.
He was emoute North to select ad
ditional professors to tea?n tneir growling
number of students. They now
have over 40 enrolled, and had to*
turn down twice a3 many more applications,
because the school will not
be in full s'lsye for this work until
the fa! i ol ;ui8year. This great rush
for textile education in South Carolina
is of wonderful import. It shows
an intense eagerness of her young mill
men after greater knowledge of cotton
manufacturing, it shows a great
rush after that business, and as a sequence
a great manufacturing state.
The indications are that in September,
1899, when the Clemson Textile School
is fully ready for work that about a
couple hundred young men will wish
to enter, and there will hardly be room
for all. This school is an annex to
the Clemson Agricultural k Mechanical
College, and it is therefore note

How he has risked his "life for State.
Ia 'seventy-six, on voting day,
1 saw the Bed Shirts' grand display;
I saw the Major lead the tarong,
To deed of right?not those of wrong;
I heard that Democratic cry,
"We change oar government or die;
We change?oar thraldom now is brief,
Let noble Hampton be our chief;
Too long we've stood Republic rule,
Experience sad been oar school."
I heard the charge be gave his men,
Which roused their Sjtuhern blood
and then
Amid&t that h>wii?g vi?ious rn)b,
Who well he knew our S'ate would
We bravely inarched them to the poll,
And voted every honest soul.
Since then, some: people judge him ill.
This man of strength, and man of will,
,His noble deeds and actions rang
The "critic's pen, and gossip's tongue."
Here I forbear?'tis not for me
To judge them, though they evil be.
But justice ever by my side
Say, *'flurl them curses far and wide."
But men, of Fairfield, I refuse
These erring creatures to abase;
I will not waste my time or ink,
Or of such people even think;
But write of Major?for oil hinj,
I'd shower praises with a vim.

A patriot with steady nej^ve,
From duty he coald not swerve.

A Saviour in Etheriel Sphere,

The orphans whom he kept in bread.
I hear His voice from heaven clear
Sav, "Major has a place np here."
'Tw known He said in ds.)? of yore,
Tiiose who have fed and clothed the

TLe same hath done it onto me.

To enter into heavenly birth,
