Augusta Chronicle. W. B. Reynolds, the man who suicided by taking morphine in Savannah - on Tuesday, was well known here. About ten days ago, just after Lancaster killed himself, Reynolds told some friends that he was go ing to follow" the photographer's example. Two days after uttering the threat he made an ineffectuai attempt to end his life, by taking - morphine. Reynolds was very much in love with a handsome young lady in Augusta, and spent much money on her, keeping her supplied with rare flowers and presenting her with a number * of jewels. When the young lady left for Savannah last week Reynolds followed her. It is said he was very much smitten with her, but his action was not re ciprocated. The Savannah News gives the following account of the .suicide: W. B. Reynolds formerly a Belt Line motorman suicided "early .yes terday morning in a house of ill fame on South Broad street by taking about four grains of mor phine. Why Reynolds took his own life is something of a mystery, It is thought by some he did it on ac . count of his wife's unfaithfulness. It is believed, too, that he put an end to his career because he had run. through a small inheritance. He waB apparently under the in fluence of liquor and seemed to be in good spirits when he went to the house. He was nervous, how-, ever, despite his free and easy hu mor. On several occasions he went out on a piazza, but no special at tention was- paid to this, as it was supposed he was, only going out to ; get ice water. But it was not ice ' water he went out for. He was worried in mind,..and to ' end.his troubles took a large dose f fell t i the floor. Those in the room rushed to his side and found him unconscious. This alarmed the inmates of the house, and ice wa ter was freely applied to the un conscious man. This and other methods of restoration were used, but to no effect. Reynolds remained limp and lifeless to all appearances. Toe proprietress of the house summon ed Dr. Nichols, who went imme diately to the unconscious man, but he found that there was little or no hope for his recovery. A general congestion had set in. The doctor believes that the chill had existed from the beginning of un consciousness. The congestion con tinued until ensued. Upon careful examination it was found from the appearance of the pupils of the man's eyes that very little of the morphine taken had been absorbed up to the time that the doctor had arrived, this being prevented by the congestive chill. Although fully aware that the man was beyond human aid, the doctor made every effort to save him by the use of the remedies usually applied in such cases. After working for two hours he gave the case up. .Reynolds was finally carried to St. Joseph's infirmary, but he had scarcely been in the infirmary . fifteen minutes when he expired. A search was made of his pockets and a red envelope containing about a grain of morphine" was found. It is presumed from the folds of tho paper that it originally contained five grains. The name of the druggist did not appear on the package, and it is impossible to learn from whom the drug was obtained. A pawn ticket showing that Rey nolds had pawned his watch for $5, and two or three small items, together with a letter addressed "Snow" were found in the pockets of the dead man's trousers. Reynolds was twenty-five years old. He was originally from Edge . field, S. C., and came here some months ago as a motorman on the Barnard street line. He held the place until March 1st, when he re? . ceived a legacy from his mother's estate. He realized from this $1,000 in cash, and a small farm. He took the money and sold the farm, and with what he could get together went on ? drunk. With the going of his money went his friends and he soon realized that he was broke. He was out of em ployment, had no money, and very few more friends, and troubles of a domestic nature came upon him, which in his 6tate were hard to overcome. Acting Coroner Naughtin viewed the body at the infirmary and con ! eluded that it was unnecessary to hold an inquest. The body, will be sent to his relatives and friends in South Carolina'to-day. I all Oats and Bye. ' I Southern Cultivator. The general mistake in planting I this crop is that it is put in too| late, and the land is not made rich enough. The complaint 'is that it j is so often cut off by the cold weather. But if the seed is put in early and the crop forced for ward by high manuring, in nine cases out of ten, it is too far ad vanced tb be injured by the cold.j Every experienced farmer has no ticed that it is the poor spots in a field which are killed first, and | that often when these are entire'.y destroyed the richer spots escape without any appearance of injury. A crop of fall oats, the "stand" being once secured, is more^valua ble than the same area planted in the spring. Thc yield is greater j and the grain is of better quality, j Every farmer, if he cannot afford more, should have at least a patch | i of rye or barley. It is never win ter killed, and furnishes the much j needed green food for horses and [ cattle. . Behring Sea Decision. LONDON, Aug. 2.-The decision of the Behring Sea question is ex pected in a fortnight. A dispatch to-day says that] every point has been adjudicated and in every instance, that Russell Websterj counsel for Great Britain, has been sustained. The decision is unanimous on all points except one, to which Judge.Harlan and Senator Morgan dissent. This refers to the seal fisheries on the high seas. The regulations to close the sea Jons, are very stringent. penienced than Americans, as the latter hold the islands. A Profitable Potato Season. Richmond Times. The Irish potato season, which bas just ended, has been most profitable one on the eastern shore for years past. The shipment has been larger and the prices have been and are yet the very top of the market. During the past three weeks over 2,500 car loads of pota toes have passed over the penin sula. One day's shipment from I ? Cape Charles alone amounted to[ between eight and nine thousand barrels, or fifty car loads. The sweet potato season will be in full blast in a few weeks. A Wonderful Watch. A mechanical marvel lately ex hibited in St. Petersburg is a musi cal watch which was made by a Russian peasant in the reign of Catherine. It is about the size of a hen's egg, and contains a repre sentation of the tomb of Christ, with the Roman sentinels. On pressing a spring the stone rolls away from the tomb, the sentinels fall down, the angels appear and the holy women enter the sepulcher, and the. same chant which is sung in the Greek church on Easter eve is actually performed. Rattlesnake in His Breeches. Philadelphia Record. ASHLAND, Pa., 25.-A son of David McKelvey, residing at Rocktown, while running through the woods near his home was at tacked by a rattlesnake which he had trod upon. The snake fastened its fangs to the boy's pantaloons and unable to withdraw them. The frightened boy started home atbroakneok speed, dragging the snake with him, where it was killed. The lad was not hurt. Gold for America. LONDON, .Aug. 2.-During the last week the rate for long discount has been 2 ; for short discoant, \. The tendency is steadily upward.

Subscribe to the Edgefield AD VERTISER. THE DISPENSARY LAW, I By Mrs. S. F. Chapin in Southern Christian Advocate. It was my privilege on last' Sab bath evening, July 16th, to be pres ent at the Citadel Square Baptist j Church, where the Rev. David] Ramsey, the pastor, was announced to preach. His topic was to be "Religion and the New Liquor) Law." The day had been intensely hot, and what seemed to be a gathering storm was evidently, approaching, but neither pretent'ous clouds nor rumbling thunder prevonted a large congregation from filling the house and occupying .the gallery. Quite a number of colored people) were also present. All denomina tions were represented, showing the deep and universal interest felt in the subject to be discussed. Mr. Ramsey, after the opening exercises, read most impressively the 13th chapter of Romans, and took as his text part of the first veiee : "The powers that be are or dained of God." He said some people thought the pulpit had no right to discuss "the temperance question," but he believed that ?verything connected with the wel fare of society and the salvation )f souls came under the conscien tious minister's line of subjects for liscussion ; and as intemperance j vas admitted by all to be the great >st curse of the age, he proposed o speak from a religious stand >oint of the new law passed for its luppression. First, he asked, what is the South karolina law, and with whom did t originate? This he answered by saying, not >y Governor Tillman or the poli icians, and yet it meets its bitter st opposition from the ill will of hose who object to it because of he great load of prejudice they eel toward the Chief Executive 'nd his party. It is being most|r( dtterly attacked from every direc ion- and if it lives it will have Ur-H. _:_ ? v_ ver enacted in any State; but lovernor Tillman is not responsi ve tor it. The liquor traffic had become so aw-defying and intolerant that houghtful citizens all through the ouutry felt and determined that t should be crushed out, and by a uajority of ten thousand votes de nanded absolute prohibition. The ?eople in the State did it. There has been a great educa ional force at work in the State or years for the shutting up of the aloons by law. The Legislature lid not pass the law absolutely >rohibitory. but provided for the lale of liquor by responsible men, guarded by restrictions almost amounting to prohibition, or if the reeholders preferred prohibition; >ut and out, all they had to do was ;o refuse to sign the petition for a lispensary. As a Christian man md a prohibitionist, I could not sign a petition for a dispensary, ilthough it is infinitely better than :he licensed saloon and a long step towards absolute prohibition. I have travelled this State from one 3nd to the other. It is my native State. I have talked with the warm-hearted, honest men who wear the wool hat and support this bill, and whatever a few poli ticians may have in view I do be lieve the bill was honestly framed to benefit all the people, and with no intention to make money out of tho law, and with no malice in the world against our beaatiful his toric City by the Sea, so full of valiant deeds and precious memo ries. He deprecated any and every effort to create division between the sections ; and as he spoke ten derly and lovingly of the little State, with its head nestling among the mountains and its feet laying in the waters bf our beautiful bay, whose brave sons at the first signai gun which sonnded in our harbor rushed from their mountain and midland homes to stand shoulder to shoulder with their brothers in the City by the Sea for the protec tion of their State, eyes filled with tears ; and when he said ' I love my State, every foot of it, and as a Christian and a patriot I will respect those who by her votes are placed in authority, and obey the laws upon her statute books," the looks of approval and acquiescing nods from the young men, who were out in force, showed Lincoln's oft-repeated saying, "You can fool all of the people some of the time, and some people all the time, but I you cannot fool all of the people ' all the time," was correct. Defiance of law, he said, can only resultan anarchy and a reign of violence, and no Christ ian patriot would ad vise such a course. No matter if the laws are passed by men of your own choice or not. Hero was Em peror at the time Paul enjoined obedience to all law and said "The powers that be are ordained of God." A stri ? execution- of law is necessary for the well-being of society. Among the many objec tions urged against the bill is that "the State has been digraced by going into, the liquor business." We would like to ask, he saiaj when has the State not been in the; liquor business? Has it not for pears legalized the liquor traffic;; md shared, in the name of rev?-i nue, the profits from it? It is not 'going in the business," but di?? ?olving its numerous partnerships; ?vith those who have conducted it;, :o the injury of its citizens, and "oing to take the business, whicK hey propose materially td curtail inderitsown immediate supervi lion, appointing only such agent! is are men of integrity and whose noral character is endorsed byjj heir fellow citizens. But "it is a monopoly," and the state might as well monopoliz? he drug business, is urged as a&( .bjection. There can be no comparison bet ween the drug business and the, iquor business. Public necessity Lemands medicines; but if fte xuggist should go into thS trychnine business the Statik rould justified in interfering as it as in the trafiic which'has proved? o destructive and ruinous to it? itizens. It is the duty of the Stat# D protect tho health of its cititf sus by every msans in its power! The advantages of the new la? re already apparent in this citya nd to give practical demonstra! on of its beneficial working hi ?ad a list, of statistics he ha<i| >pied from the police ! booksj lowing tue comparative- numjai, ito effect~wi?hi;noseof proceeding ears: In 1889, from the 1st the to the 5th of July, there were 42 arrests, 5 white, 17 colored. In 1890, 29-14 white, 15 olored. In 1893, 6-5 whites, 1 colored; of these were feom liquor held ver. Fourth of July was more like a abbath day, and quite a contrast 5 previous fourths, when sober itizens kept indoors to avoid ollision with drunken rowdies. In visiting among my parishiou rs I hear of blessed results. One idy tells of a husband and father rho had not spent an evening at ome for ten years not spending n evening out since the bar rooms rere closed. A large class of young men, tarticularly those whose homes re not in the city, drank because if the pleasant surroundings of he bar room, with its music, >icmres and flowers. This temp ation is now taken out of their ray, for the dispensaries offer no uch inducements. They are not :ept open after dark, and do not tell by the single drink. Habitual irinkers and minors cannot mrchase a drop. So the dispen iary has none of these injurious Matures of the bar rooms, and nay prove a great blessing to the mtire State. Not any of our unregistered Chinese residents have yet been sent back to their own country mi ler the provision of the Exclusion ict, and the half dozen of them ?vho have been arrested under it ?vere speedily released to await the )rders of the government. It has been interesting to* observe how the whole of these peculiar people have stood together, solidly and impassively, through the period of fifteen months since the enactment Df the Geary law. It is' not often that any large body of white men are so unanimous, obedient, and patient as these yellow men have been all along. The Chinese in the United States are certainly a remarkable people. They are un obtrusive, industrious, sober, prov ident, and well-mannered; they cannot be accused of inordinate viciousness ; and it must be said that, in this part of the country, there are few criminals or law breakers among them.-New York Sun.

Lyles returned the city yesterday from a stay his summer home at Landrum on the Asheville and Spartanburg road, the State .line. He tells the story of the remarkable find of buried treasure upon the plantation adjoining his place by a poor white farmer. The treasure is all in gold coin, some of the coins being 175 years old. All of it is the coin of foreign countries and the dates range from 1719 to 1792 A few days ago a white farmer was ploughing in the field. His pl?w turned up two of these gold coins. He picked them up and went ahead. His wife came along shortly afterwards, hoeing. She dug up two mort-. Then they stop ped work and went back to the spot", beginning to dig. In a short time they unearthed a pile, with no other covering than the earth, of over 100 of the gold coins. Bach one of them was as bright ind shiny as if it had just come im the mint. The money value e gold itself is about $500. ^e time ago the same farmer ?Jug up an old skillet near the same place. It it supposed that ?^poins were buried therein. The land upon which this gold found formerly belonged to Thomas Earle, but there is no slue to solve the riddle of how his treafure came to . be buried ibero. It is supposed to have j??h a collection of rare coins nade by some man with a fancy br such things during the present ?entury and buried there for safe jeeping during the war. The value of the coins, on ac lorint of their age and rarity, is no Loubt, very" considerable. The oins are Spanish, English, Ger aap, etc. ^Mr. Lyles secured two of them. j?hey are beauties. One of them S%he size pf a five dollar gold cription in Latin "Phillip V, by he grace of God, King of Spain ind India." This surrounds the fead of Philip. On the obverse is he crown and coat arms of Philip md this inscription : "The fear of Jod is the beginning of wisdom." The other coin is larger. Surrounding the head of a woman jouis' queen no doubt, is the in iription : "Louis XV, by the grace )f God, King of France aad Navarre, 1779." On the obverse s the maltese cross with fleur de is in tb o center and the inscription n Latin 'Christ reigns, conquers ind rules." The farmer will doubtless .ealize a handsome sum for his ind. BAD BLOOD. rwo Deacons Disagree and One Kills the Other's Fine Mule. \nguata Evening News. An unusual case arose in the Hamburg Justice Court to-day be fore Judge Getzen. Two colored brothers in the church (Baptist deacons and lead ers, in fact), Jim ThomaB and Handy Henderson, got into trouble, and they will have to submit to the law. Jim grew jealous of Handy's attentions to his wife, and although hauled up in church and made to shake hands, they did not bury the hatchet. Handy lost a fine mule the other night and found it had been car ried to the swamp and killed. He suspected Thomas and had a war rant sworn out. Judge Getzen heard the prelim inary to-day, but thinking the case more important and serious than could be covered in a justice court he sent it to the higher court in Aiken. The colored people condemn Thomas, and the ease is liable to go hard with him. It is a matter of pride and con gratulation that in the midst of this epidemic of bank failures the Southern banks stand so firm. Comptrolter Eckles has com plimented the banking institutions of this section upon tne "safe and conservative manner" in which they are conducted, and says their management is highly com mendable. Especially has South Carolina to congratulate herself upon the absence of even the slightest flurry in her banking institutions.-Winnsboro News and Herald. BROUGHT TO AUGUSTA. The Remains of W. B. Reynolds, j Who Committed Suicide. Augusta Evening News, Aug and. The remains of Mr. W. B; Rey nolds, who killed himself in Sa vannah yesterday by swallowing an over-dose of laudanum, were brought to Augusta at noon to-day, and were carried to his father's home, twelve miles from the city, over in CaroIinas for burial. Mr. Reynolds has been in Au gusta for the last two months stay ing with Mr. Jack Holder, and he anly left here for Savannah last Sunday. Since his departure Mr. Holder received a letter from Reynolds ;elling him his intentions to com nit suicide. Some time ago Reynolds inher ted $1,200 from his mother's (state, and after blowing in all his in he became despondent and luicided. ]APE HOM'S POST OFFICE. Chere is None Simpler-And it Has No Postmaster Attached. In spite of improved modern aethods of communication, the outhern extremity of South Lmerica still retains its flavor of loofness and romance. The trip round the Horn, still necessarily lade by sailing vessels because bey cannot so easily tread the lazes of the Straits of Magellan, ? no easier than it was to the early avigators, save that perhaps mod rn sailing ships are safer and lore manageable than those of the ixteenth century.

An extremely ludicrous incident ccurred in a Lancashire church n a recent Sunday. Ayoungladv, vidently a strauger, of a naturally lale complexion, accidentally let ter handkerchief fall on the floor. Jy repeatedly stooping to reach it urtively she attracted the notice f a gentleman in the pew behind, mo thought she was about to faint. Vith the best of motives, there ore, he took her gently under the inns and raised her up, gently to 1er surprise. As she tried to re ease herself another gentleman pent to her assistance, and before he young lady knew what was the natter they were moving her out nto the aisle. Naturally she was too much as onished to find words for protest, md they had managed to half larry, half lead her some distance, vheu she directed an appealing ook to another gentleman in a )ew, as if asking him to help also, le, too, promptly rose from his leat and helped to lift her up and ;arry her into the vestry room. There she recovered ber powers of ipeech and mutual explanations loon exposed the ludicrousness of ;he situation. k Thirty-Pound Nugget of Gold. fortland Morning Orgonian. BARKER CITY..

RALEIGH, N. C., Aug. 2.-The fe cundity of the negro race has been the subject of much comment and discussion. A case has come to light in this State that is one of the most remarkable on record. Moses Williams, a negro farmer, lives in the eastern section of this I State. He is 65 years old-as nearly as hie can make oui;-but does not ap pear to be over 50. He has been married twice, and by the two ?raves has had born to him forty ive children. By the first wife he had twenty ;hree children, twenty of whom vere girls and three were boys. 3y the second wife he had twenty wo children, twenty girls and two )oys. He also has about forty ;rand children. The case is well .utheuticated. For the Though Cf u?. There is no greater rogue than a | lious rascal. From life to death is measured y two ticks of the clock. If the facts could only be fully nown, it would no doubt be found hat one good natured man does lore for the health of a neighbor ood than four doctors. Bread from God's table is only iven to those who are willing to ork and fight for it. Shadows are black, but they ave no teeth. The world loses nothing when a id man dies, no matter how much loney he is worth. The best places in heaven are for lose who are willing to have a ard time on earth for Christ. There are men so small that hen they give a quarter for the ?athen they think that God ought i give them a big wheat, crop. The devil keeps? ci?se to the man ivens at home, pass for doves in ?ciety. Testimony is a duty. If God is sing anything for you tell it. St. Paul was probably the only reacher who never complained of 3ing over worked, and yet there sver was an heur of his Christian fe that he didn't keep the devil asy. Faith without any works is an igine without any fire under the riler. It is never safe to undertake to ve a single day without God. The bank of heaven is the only auk we know of these hard times mt invites a run upon it. RAM'S HORN. Hied His Mouth With Powder. CAICAGO, July 28.-Tired of life Gilliam H.
