The Denmark lynchers are not fools J
whatever else may be said of them. It

and protection of the administration and
its supporters.
Th^ Denmark lynchers hanged N. G.
Gonzales in effigy Saturday night at the
junction of the South Bound and South
Carolina Railways. A vulgar placard j
was suspended from the neck. Hanging
or burning in effigy is the ?a*t resort of :
desperate men and nine times in ten it is
proof positive that they are in the wrong. [

The Board of County Commissioners
had considerable business of importance
under consideration at their monthly
meeting on Tuesday last. Changes in

and location submitted. The grades of
the roads have been greatly improved,
the steepest being r.ine inches to the rod.
The bridge across Chauga will be about
one-half mile i.bove the present site. The
contract was let to Mr. Warren T. Davis
for 859. A survey and profile of the new
route over the Stumphouse Mountain

DEAR COURIER: On the night of the
27th instant the store of J. H. Sullivan &
Son, of Fort Madison, was entered by a
burglar and twenty-five or thirty dollars'

to a young white man who was loafing
about the place the evening before.
Several persons were soon on the track
of him and he was captured eight miles
North of Mount Airy Friday night by
Mr. Jim Jones, of Fort Madison, assisted
by two officers of Mount Airy. None of

The farmers are getting along very
well with their crops. Most of then: are
done planting and some have worked
over upland corn. Cotton is not up to a
good stand yet. The small grain is look
ing well, especially wheat, and, if no
thing happens the general opinion is
that there will be 2 good crop made this
year. The fruit lias not been injured by
the cold weather and-we guess there will
be a good crop.
There was a party of young folks from

women was called to her long home.
Mrs. Florence E. Welch w as beloved "hy
all who knew her. and there was great
sorrow in our community when it was
known that she was no more. She had
been a great sufferer at times for several
months and death must have been, to
her. a happy release. She was a conse
crated, self-denying Christian woman.
She was buried in Oak Hill Cemetery on
Sunday at 12 o'clock, after appropriate
funeral services, conducted by her pas
tor. Kev. E. P. Hutson. The floral con
tributions were abundant and beautiful.
Mr. F. M. Cary has taken charge of the

The excursion to Atlanta to-day was
well patronized. There were about 400
passengers.
Kev. .J. A. Wilson has had a flattering
call to a charge in North Carolina, but
his many friends will be pleased to hear
that he has. declined and decided to
remain here.
The meeting is still in progress at the
Methodist church. Mr. Hutson was dis
appointed in getting Dr. Smith to help

Interesting Meeting, a Generous Com
mui-iiy. Large Congregations
and Fine Speaking.
[For the Keowee Courier.]
The union meeting was held with the
Poplar Springs Baptist church, live miles
below Walhalla, on last Saturday and
Sunday. Thc meeting was organized by
re-electing the former officers. The
churches sent up a good delegation, and
the brethren came.up determined to make
the meeting a success.
The introductory seimon was preached
on Saturday hythe Rev. I). B. Wait It
was a fine discourse, and during its deliv
ery all present saw that the preacher had
studied well his sermon. Thc text used
was Paul's inquiry, Lord, what wilt thou
have me to do? After the introduction
the speaker discoursed on three main
points, drawn from the text: these were
submission, faith and work. These points
were earnestly and simply presented.
After the sermon twenty-five minutes
remained before intermission. Your
scribe was asked to occupy this time,
which he did, using the same text and
dwelling upoa the importance and neces
sity of faith.
An intermission followed for refresh
ments. Trunks and baskets and boxes
were then opened and their contents
spread out under the shade of the trees
and the large congregation did full jus
tice to that wi-.ch was spread before
them.
After the intermission the congrega
tion reassembled in the house to hear the
interesting questions on the programme
discussed. Each question was read out
by the moderator and discussed by the
brethren. The speeches were good, and
by the earnestness manifested all present
saw that the questions were of vital
importance to the welfare of the church.
At night at 8 P. M. your scribe preached
to a crowded house. Thus ended a very
pleasant and. we hope, a very profitable
day for Poplar.
Sunday was the great day of the feast.
At half-past 9 in the morning the Sunday
school assembled. The speakers ap
pointed to address the school were all
absent. Your scribe was requested to
discharge this duty, which he did, basing
his remarks on Bible study. The time
had now arrived for the charity sermon,
which was preached by this writer. The
house was too small for the crowd; many
outsiders were unable to get inside.
After the sermon there was a recess
for dinner. After dinner we went back
into the house, and a - -t of the after
noon was devoted to the centennial.
There was but one speaker, and that was
your writer. The good people of Poplar
know how to work a minister, if we are
to judge from the way in which they
worked this writer.
This was my first visit to Poplar Spring-?.
and in the near future, Providence per
mitting, I shall renew my visit.
The health of the community is good,
as I heard of no sickness. The grain
crop in that section is looking well. The
people are generous in their hospitality.
They know how to make a poor fellow
feel at home. My stay during the meet
ing was with Bro. Robinson and wife.
Bro. R. is 76 years old, and his dear wife
is much younger. They are full of life,
activity and devotion. They are growing
old beautifully and gracefully.
This account of our meeting would be
incomplete if I did not mention the sweet
music dispensed by Sister Morton and
choir, assisted bx Prof. John ' Reid.? It
was ve:.-y appropriate and soul-inspiring.
Our meeting was a success. Th?? Poplar
Springs church and community will not
soon forget the meeting. The delegates
returned to their homes, undoubtedly
feeling that it was good to be there.

WESTMINSTER. S. C., May 2,1S93.
DEAR COURIER: A fine rain fell on
Monday night which was badly needed
and will bring up the cotton and the
grass too.
On last Thursday the following young
gentlemen and ladies made a trip to Fort
Hill by private conveyance and report a
most pleasant visit: Dr. W. A. Sheldon,
Messrs. W. P. Dickson, C. E. Mason,
Claude Little, L S. Pitts, J. A. Terrell,
B. M. England and H. J. Cox, of Toccoa,
Ga., Misses Pauline Mason, Sue King,
Sadie Quillian, Daisy Justus, Bessie Nor
ris, Effie Dickson and Mrs. C. E. Gray.
The storehouse of Messrs. J. H. Sulli
van <& Son, of Fort Madison, was entered
by burglars one night last week. They
gained admittance by going to Mr. Sulli
van's wood pile and getting his axe and
crushing out the glass just above the
door. Two suits of clothing, several
pairs of shoes and a quantity of canned
goods were stolen. They pulled off their
old shoes and left them at the door steps.
They also ate several boxes of sardines
before leaving. Three strange looking
loungers were seen in the town the day
previous, and it is supposed that all of
them were connected with the robbery.
An escaped convict of ' the Georgia peni
tentiary was captured near Mount Airy,
Ga., the latter part of the week who
was connected with the robbery. His
name is Will Jones. He was not brought
over, as he has five more months to serve
in the penitentiary of that State. He
had concealed all the stolen property and
refused to tell where he put it. There
was a small reward for his arrest
Last Wednesday afternoon Mr. C. E.
Simpson and wife, who reside in this
place, came near meeting with a serious
accident. They were returning from the
held riding in a road cart pulled by a
wild mule. When near the residence of
Mr. Newell, two miles above town, they
were run into by a crowd of drunken
men who live in thi? place, and were
riding in a livery stable outfit, driven by
a colored driver. One of the drunk men
was driving at the time of the accident.
Mr. Simpson was riding near the edge of
the road and the horse that was driven by
the drunken men struck Mr. Simpson's
cart wheel and smashed it to the ground,
breaking the wheel to pieces and throw
ing Mr. Simpson and the horse to thc
ground together at the same time. The
horse sustained severe injuries and Mr.
Simpson and wife escaped unhurt, but
badly frightened. Had he not had good
hold of the lines his mule would have
run away and both occupants might have
been killed. Mr. Simpson says the road
is eighteen feet wide where they struck
him and he had driven to one side to give
room for them to pass.
Children's Day will be observed at the
Presbyterian church on the next fourth
Sunday at 0.4? A. M. Messrs. W. P. An
derson, of this place, and J. W. Todd, of
Seneca, have been elected to make ad
dresses.
Mr. T. N. Carter has recently had his
commodious dwelling plastered and has
had a nice yard fence built, which adds
greatly to the appearance of his premises.
Mr. Carter now claims to have the pret
tiest and best residence in town.
Capt. J. A. Ballenger, who resides a
few miles below here, was taken seriously
ill one day last week. : He is still very
low, but thought to be some better this
week.
Mr. (I. Blackwell, a blacksmith of this
place, has opened up a photograph gal
lery in connection with his other work.
Fie is now prepared to do work for those
desiring anything in that line.
Mr. P. S. White, of Atlanta, Ga., visited
his father. Mr. R. F. White, this week.
Prue was as jovial as ever and looked as
if Atlanta agrees with him.
J. R. Gossett, Esq., editor of theEasley
Democrat, and Mr T. F. Gossett and
wife, of Bickens county, visited relatives
in and near Westminster this week.
Mrs. S. T. Marett is visiting her sister,
Mrs. Terrell, at Seewana, Ga.
We unintentionally made an error in a
paragraph bust week. Where we said
Rev. McBryde would preach at Return
we should have said Retreat. !..
A Delegate.
[Frankfort . Ky.- Daily Call, April 29.]
Rex-. W. G. Neville, who has been at
tending the Presbytery of his church at
McIIenry. in'Ohio county, returned home
yesterday afternoon. He was made the
delegate from his Presbytery to thc Gene
ral Assembly of the Southern Presbyte
rian churches, which meets in Macon,
Georgia. The honor was worthily be
stowed, for we know of no divine in the
State who could lill the exalted position
wi'h more Christian grace than Rev.
Neville, of the Southern Presbyterian
church, of Frankfort.
The Death of a Man of God.
[Anderson Intelligencer, May 3.]
Rev. W. F. Pearson died at his home in

Thursday morning of the week before he
had an attack of apoplexy. He became
unconscious and remained so until his

GOT. Northen on Lynching.
[Atlanta Constitution.]
ATLANTA, GA., April 27.-I s?.3k an
early opportunity to thank you most
heartily for the editorial in this day's
issue of the Constitution, "A Mistaken
View,"
No citizen of this State can ever know
what it costs, in nerve power, to stand in
front of the determined purpose of the
people to take the law into their own
hands in certaiu cases of outrace and
violence.
Before I came into office I determined
upon the policy I have followed as to
lynching and while I have been fixed in
my purpose I fully understand the great
odds against me.
Our civilisation cannot stand these
shocks by lawless violence. Until we
guarantee security to all classes and con
ditions of people we cannot hope for de
velopment through the investment of
capital or the progress of our own people.
It is my determined purpose, therefore,
to pursue my 'policy as to lynching in
every case that comes to my notice. I
shall offer a reward for the mob, regard
leas of their character and position be
fore the people, making no distinction
as to the crime they seek to pusish or
the criminal they unlawfully abuse. I
im truly, ?tc., W. J.' NOBTHSX,
Governor.

The case of the County Sheriffs, who
were led into disobeying the orders of
the United States Court, has been settled
at last. Yesterday morning Attorney J.
E. Burke walked into the Clerk's office
and handed him a check which read as
follows:
"CHARLESTON, S. C., April 29, 1893.
No. 237. Bank of Charleston, X. B. A.,

Clerk of the United States Circuit Cou.?,
eighteen hundred and ninety-one dollars
97-000.
(Signed) "LOKD ? BURKE."
Immediately thereafter the following
order was issued :

"It having been brought to the atten
tion of the court that the defendant in
this case has paid the fine imposed on
him with costs: It is ordered that he
be discharged from the custody of the

day. So much of the order as directs
the entry of judgment for said fine and
costs is recinded.
"CHARLES H. SLMON'TON,
"United States Judge."
April 29, 1893.:
Similar orders were issued in the cases
of Sheriff Gaines, of Anderson, and She
riff Riser, of Newberry, but poor Fred.
Nance, of Abbeville, was left out in the
cold. Gov. Tillman had made no pro
vision for him, and now he will have to
put up his 8500 or an execution will be
issued against him and his property will
be seized. The fine of each of the She
riffs was ?'500 and the additional &?91
97-100 is for costs to the court.

A trip to Fort Hill, a few days ago,
showed than an immense amount of sub

few months.
The finishing touches are being given
the college building, and it is said to be
the finest college building in the South.
The inside is finished in pine and oiled,

The dormitory is completed and ready
to be furnished. This is an immense

All of thc work is being pushed for

everything necessary will bc in readiness.

of the experiment station, also professor

world is that of the late Henry Scarlett,
of Upson county, Georgia. Several years
before Mr. Scarlett's death he selected a

-and when he died this huge tombstone
was placed over his grave.

Dr. Pope's Peculiar Ball.
COLUMBIA, S. C., May 2.-Dr. Sampson
Pope, of Newberry, who is a candidate
for the position of United States Marshal,
is on his high horse about the decision
of the United States Supreme Court in
the famous railroad case, which was
adverse to the position taken by the State
of South Carolina. He stated to-day
that he had written President Cleveland
a letter informing him that if he were
appointed marshal he would not serve
under a court holding such views as are
expressed in the railroad decision. In
the letter he stated that he had no sym
pathy for a court that favored "rotten
corporations."

Wade Haines Will Hang.
[Greenville Daily News.]
COLUMBIA, S. C., May 2.-There seems
now to be no reason for doubt of the
guilt of Wade Haines, the young negro
convicted of murdering Miss Florence
Hornsby, of this county, and who has
several times been respited by Gov. Till
man in the belief that he was innocent.
The Governor to-day announced that he
would no longer delay the execution,
which will take place here next Friday.
This case has excited the most wide
spread interest and there is hardly a man
in Columbia who has been of opinion
that the boy was guilty. For several
months Detective McMannus, of Charles
ton, has been working on the case, and
his reports submitted to the Governor
state that there is no truth in the state
ment of one Lazarus Field, who made
affidavit that an old negro on his death
bed told him that he had found the
bloody clothes of a white man who had
committed the crime with which Haines
was charged : and that all his investiga
tions tended to disprove every point
made to establish Haines' innocence. In
announcing his decision to-day Gov. Till
man stated that he had given the case
more patient investigation and careful
thought than any he had had before him.
"If he is innocent, as many believe he
is," th< Governor said, "he is the victim
of the strongest circumstantial evidence
that has ever b*en brought to my atten
tion."
To Preserve
The richness, color, and beauty of the
hair, the greatest care is necessary,
much harm being done by the use of
worthless dressings. To be sure of hav
ing a first-class article, ask your drug
gist or perfumer for Ayer's Hair Vigor.
It is absolutely superior to any other
preparation o? the kind. It restores the
original color and fullness to hair which
has become thin, faded, or gray. It
keeps the scalp cool, moist, and free
from dandruff. It heals itching humors,
prevents baldness, and imparts to
THE HAIR
a silken texture and lasting fragrance.
N*o toilet can be considered complete
without this most popular and elegant
of all hair-dressings.
"My hair began turning gray and fall
ing out wheu I was about 25 years of
age. I have lately been using Ayer's
Hair Vigor, and it is causing a new
growth of hair of the natural color."
B. J. Lowry, Jones Prairie, Texas.
"Over a year ago I had a severe fever,
and when I recovered, my hair began to
fall out, and what little remained turned
gray. I- tried various remedies, but
without success, till at last I began to
USE
Ayer's Hair Vigor, and now my hair is
growing rapidly and is restored to its
original color." -Mrs. Annie Collins,
Dighton, Mass.
"I have used Ayer's Hair Vigor for
nearly five years, and my hair ia moist,
glossy, and in an excellent state of pres
ervation. I ara forty years oid, and
have ridden the plains for twenty-five
years."-"Wm. Henry Ott. alias "Mus
tang Bill," Newcastle, Wyo. .
