that those who had any doubts as to
the financial standing of the company,

should write for Dun's report of March
1883, or call at the National Bank of
Newberry and obtain it. We are pleased
to see Mr. Chase in this new role, and
feel confident of his ability to do good
work for this popular and reliable.com

the editorial page in reference to this

Another Overcoat Stolen.
Hampton Delany's penchant for
overcoats led him to appropriate one
belonging to Mr. Jacob Sligh to his
own use and benefit on Tuesday even
ing of last week. Opportunity present
iugle disposed of his entire interest
in it to two roadworkers at $2 eacTi.
In the meantime Mr. Sligh shivered in
uncontrollable grief and cold, until
Saturday, when he heard of the sale,
and also getting the names of the buy
ers, went for them. One of these buy
ers of second hand clothing had sold
his share to the other fellow who want
ed to attend a party with the- entire
overcoat on. From him Mr. Sligh
bought the coat back-not the coat's
back-but the entire garment for $2,
and is now happy again. The con
elusion of the whole matter is that the
-fellow who is out $2 will. go for Mr.
Delany, and get the worth of it in
epidermis. ,
Shooting Affray.
Wele ,rn that a desperate shooting af
fravoecureda iew days ago, just across
the Salud. river, in Edgetield County,
between Mark Berry and a son of Mr.
Wister Swindler, in which the former
was seriously wounded. He advanced
upon Swindler who was at work in the
field and presenting his shotgun, ask
ed, "Do you know that you are a dead
man?" Swindler said that he did not,
and subsequent events showed that he
was correct. He sprang upon Berry,
wrested the gun from his hands, and
red upon him. The load entered the
left arm near the wrist and followed
it to the shoulder, tearing the flesh in
a fearful manner: Berry turned and
received the contents of the other bar
rel, which proved to be only powder
and waddina, in his back. The sup
position is that he loaded the gun -in
great haste and excitement, and. put
both loads of shot in the barrel which
was first discharged. Of course a
woman was "at; the bottom" of the
It is said that Berry's reputation as a
debt payer is not good, and a number
of doctors refused to' visit him. We
have not heard how he is doing.
Sniffles and Shad.
The intimate relations existing be
twen myself and the senior editor of
the'erald, made me an eye-witness
on Saturday last to a scene of pertur
bation into which the latter was
thrown by the reception of a box of
huge shad, the least one of which
weighed over six and the heftiest eight
pounds. There were six of them, and
spread out in a row, they were beau
ties, and each had a row. They came
with the compliments of Mr. A. C.
Jones to T. F. Greneker. .That is so
the card read on one side ; turning~ the
card over however, it was seen there
were two sides to the question, for on
the reverse in beautiful chirographiy
appeared 'one each for Silas Johnstone,
Dr. S. Pope, 0. L. Sehi. mpert, M. A.
Carlisle, J. Y. Culbreath, and the Edi
tor.' The first side of that card threw
the Editor off his feet into one of his
nervous shakes-what to do with so
many and so large shad puzzled him,
"just like Crane," said he, "he makes
his sight too high, and has not the gange
of an Editor's stomach." The other
side brought him up all standing, and
restored him to tranquility again.
A happy smile beamed over his Sun
day-shaven face, once more he was
saved from an agonizing death, in the
removal of near fifty pounds of fresh
shad from his mental vision, for five
other good fellows had to share the lot.
I have been requested by these several
gentlemen to return thanks to Mr.
Jones for his delicious and princely re
membrance, and to say that they were
perfectly surprised, in that they had
no idea that the land commission offiee
was capable of showing such fish al
ready. If not from the land office
whose fish basket did Jones get into.
Any how no such shad were ever seen
in Newberrv before, and if Jones has
any difficulty in explaining they will
ask no more questions. Being connec
ted with the Editor's family I dined
off his shad.

The Wadlington Will Case.
A short time after Maj. Tlos. B
Wadlington's death last winter, letter
of administration were ranted to hi
nephews, Joseph L. Keitt and Thos
W. Keitt, who at once took charge o
his estate. Not long afterwards, Mr
John Bauskett, a first cousin of Maj
Wadlington, tiled a petition statin;
that the estate had been willed to hin
and Betty Reed, colored, Maj. Wai
lington's reputed daughter, and askin;
that he, as one -f the exezutors, bi
allowed to come i:to the Pr;bate Court
and prove the will. Thr petition wa
resisted by the administrators, on th<
ground that the deceased left no will
The case came to a hearing last Thurs
day. Mr. Bauskett was represented b:
Gen. L. F. Youmans; Betty Reed, b,
Messrs. Moorman and Simkins; and thi
administrators, by Messrs. Suber ani
The examination of witnesses oc
cupied two days and the evidence was
in many places, conflicting, but th'
leadinr facts are substantially as fo
lows: in 1873 M1aj. Wadlington aske<
Mr. Bauskett to write his will, and ha
sent him a draft containing directions
Mr. Bauskett handed the papers to hi
law partner, Mr. W. S. Monteith, an<
asked him to do the work. The wil
was drawn, according to the directions
giving four hundred acres of land,
watch and $1,000 to Betty Reed, an
the rest of the.property to Mr. Baus
kett. Mr. Bauskett was named as es
ecutor and al blank was left for the
name of a second executor. The wil
as drawn was sent to Maj. Wadlington
The rough draft of directions was in
troduced in evidence.
In 1873, R. V. Gist and R. C. Son dle:
witnessed a will for Maj. Wadlingtor
and they swear that Capt. Jno. .
Sondley was the third witness. Capt
John Sondley swears that he know
nothing about,it, and is positive that h<
never witnessed a will for Maj. Wad
lington or anybody else.
In the spring of 1882 Maj. Wadling
ton placed a regularly executed will it
the hands of Mrj. Silas Johnstone, an<
asked him to draw a new one, makin,
some changes. Mr. Johnstone remnem
bes that the will was witnessed b:
R. V. Gist and some Sondley, but he
feels sure that he would have r >tie
if Capt. Jno. R. Sondley's name ha<
appeared as a witness, that gentlemai
being named as one of the executors
rThe will must have been that draw:
by Mr. Monteith. In the new will Mr
Johnstone was directed to provide fo
Betty Reed, but the rest of the estat<
was to be given to Thomas W. Keit
and Miss H~attie Keitt, instead of Mr
Bauskett. On the 31st of August
1882, Mr. Johnstone sent both wills t<
Maj. Wadlington who was sick an
directed them to be put into his desk
About two months afterwards he wa
rendered helpless by a fall and did no
leave his bed until his death. On th<
second day after his death, a scare:
was made'by Col. Ellison Keitt, assist
ed by his sons and daughter, but noth
ing in the shape of a will was found
except the draft drawn by Mr. John
stone; that had never been signed
Much evidence was introduced to shoi
Maj. Wadlington's feelings toward
the Kekts and Mr. Bauskett, but hi
unchanged purpose appears to hai
been to provide liberally for Bett:
Reed. A great deal was said about hi
declarations as to the disposition of hi
property, but much of the evidene
was conflieting. The case seems t<
resolve itself mnto two questions: 1
Was the will which is attempted to bi
proved ever executed ? 2. If so, wa
it revoked by Maj. Wadlington?

sides. The Probate Judge will ne
reach a decision for several days; ti
is about the hardest nut he ever had t
crack. In about five years we hopet
be able to give the final decision of th
Supreme Court in this case. The cas
has excited unusual interest '.n ou
community, both on account of th
novelty of some of its features, an
the amount of the property involved.
