Ciiaulestox, S. C, July 21. Tho McDow verdict was the subject of discourses in most of tho pulpits here to-day. Dr. Ved der, at the old Huguenot Protestant Church, alluding to tho verdict, said: Our city, so long and so worthily the pride of thoso whose birth place it is, or who havo learned to love and call it home; never more dear than amid the calamities with which it was visited; no more worthy of honor than from the spirit with which they were born and tho strength with which their desolations were repaired. had already passed into popular literature as tho 'City of Disaster,' when its crowning catastrophe came from its hall of justice. Whether or not the judgment there ren dered was technically warranted and it was reached by 6ome, at least, of unim peachable integrity,- some, at least, who might have heen mistaken I think they were but who would not knowinirlv be unjust or untrue yet there cannot oe a doubt that a very large ana lnllucntial proportion of our community and well nich our whole land lioia it to have been there demonstrated that Charles ton holds nothing more cheap than human life; that truth uas been stricken down in what should havo been its very citadel: that ouo whose loss should havo been a public calamity has been stealthily done to death, under encumstauces that sicken tho heart wnicn hears tue recital ot them. whilst the wanton and worse than worth less 'slayer goes forth not only unscathed of penalty, but applauded by somo as a well-doer. This is the verdict of a very ex- tended and outspoken public sentiment." At Grace Episcopal Church, the fashion able church of the city, the Kev. Dr. Chas. Colesworth Pinckuev said: "Life is far too cheap iu our land. It is sacritied with a recklessness which would not be tolerated in Enizland or anv other civilized land where God's law is known. The result of the recent trial iu this city seems to fall very far short of any censure of homicide. It has failed to condemu crime, to vindi cate God's law, to protect human life ncainst the murderous pistol. That human life has been taken by violence is an ac knowledged fact, and tho tribunals of justice have no word of censure for the ded. Tho slayer is restored to his place without condemnation of any sort, without line or any legal disapproval of tho wronir. The murderer pollutes the land beyond all other evil deeds, and leaves an iudeliblo stain in God's sight. Nor can this blond stain be obliterated until it is washed out with tho blood of him that sheddeth ir. Mercj' to the murderer is cruelty to tho community. Every deed of violence, whether murder, manslaughter or mob law, becomes the seed of future crime unless re pressed by the majesty of the law." Two Children Burned to Death. Columbus. O., July 21.

Ho was John Keely, the great motor inventor. During the after noon a number of visitors called on Mr. Keely, but wero unable to gain admittance.

He was from some engineering school np the country. and had come to tho city expressly to see tho much-talked-of invention. Of course he was disappointed. 'I am much troubled with this sort of visitors," Mr. Keely said to a reporter; "they have an idea that we can allow them access to our shop, when in realitv I am positively forbidden to talk concerning the motor." When asked how soon the motor would be put into practical opera tion, Mr. Keely said he could not state, but ventured to say that he is working day and night, and. would announce something dehnite at an earljrdat3. "Will Try to Punish the Alton. Chicago, July 21. The Interstate-com merce Kailroad Association will make an other struggle for its perpetuation, on Wednesday next, and will endeavor to adopt such a course as to meet tho competition of tho Alton, and at the same time punish this road for withdrawing from the association. In regard to this matter a local paper says: "The discovery that the Alton has made live-year contracts with the leading West ern shippers, and thus anticipated the pro posed boycott, has caused great dismay among the association roads, and many of them now advocate a temporary abandon ment of the association, and that each road independently take such action acrainst tho Alton as'it mav deem necessary. The idea now is to put the rates down to unprofitable figures, and then let the Alton have the business at those rates. Such ac tion would necessarily lead to an abandon ment of tho houthwestern Kailway Asso ciation, as the Alton would at once withdraw from tho latter, and the other roads would bo compelled to do likewise to get free of the restriction which the agreement places upon them. will take sid s with the Alton, ana with draw from the Interstate-commence Kail- way Association, and also from the Trans- micsoun Association.

Samuel llenly la Glasgow (Kjr.) Times. I was born in the neighborhood of Monti-- cello. President Jefferson's Virginia home. I have seen Tom Jefferson many a time, and I ate breakfast with him once. I'll tell you how it was. Several years ago I was a bare-' footed boy, roaming tho fields and woods. of Virginia. I lived near Mouticello, and. to tell the truth, didn't think much more of Tom Jefferson than of any other Virginia' gentleman, teo one day when a companion and mysislf found a big bee-tree in thoMon- ticello woods, we determined to ask Mr. Jefferson for the honey. Tho next morning. bright and early, we went up to Mouticello and sent in our request to the father of tho Declaration of Independence. He Rent us word back to come in and eat breakfast with bun and we could havo tho tree. This was two propositions that wo could not bo backed out on, and in we went. We got a good breakfast lint I couldn't eat much and then Mr. Jefferson wrote an order to his overseer to let us have that l--tree. We nearly sweated ourselves to death cut ting it down, and got about n. nnnrt nr bulf gallon of honey. I have seen Tom Jelleron a thousand times, but that was tho extent of my acquaintanco with him. He died terribly poor, having spent all he had liko a gentleman, as he certainly was. He wan a great man, but I doubt if be was any happier than auvbody else, especially in hi-j- iftnt uuys, wnicn Wtro ciouuea ami Har assed by debt- A Clincher. Life.
