lingering for about 10 months with this
disease, aud all along has borne her alllictions
quite patiently and uncomplainingly.
Mrs. Percival was 21 years old, had
been married about live years, had two
children; only one living, the youngest
having died about a week before its
mother's death. Mrs. Percival was a
member of the Methodist church, having
joined the church when about 10 years of
age. She was conscious to the end and
expressed herself as being perfectly willing
and ready to die. An affectionate
wife, a fond and loving mother has passed
from this to a better world. "Blessed are
they that die in the Lord."
The interment took place the day following
her death in the cemetery at Bethesda
church, and was attended by a
large concourse of friends and relatives
of the deceased. We extend our deepest
sympathy to the bereaved husband aud
other friends and relatives of the deceased.
A great many 01 me laruieis iu mis
section still have some cotton on hands,
which they say they are going to hold
until next spring, unless the price gets
better.
The landowners of this section are having
their land advertised and posted to
prohibit huntiug of all kinds, the object
being to stop the killing of the birds, as it
is believed that they destroy the cuinchbugs.
Mr. Marion Parrish had the misfortune
to have his cotton house, containing two
bales of cotton and the seed of several
bales, burned about two weeks ago. The
origin of the fire was unknown.
There has been some cotton and com
stolen out of the fields in this section,
and unless somebody keeps close, the
force on the chaingaug will be increased.
Thieves entered the store of Mr. John
Nelson, at Smith's Turnout, one night
about 10 days ago, and, among other
things, carried off a good suit of clothes
and about $7 in cash. Mr. Nelson was
sleeping in the store at the time, and was
awakened by bearing a noise in the store.
He arose carefully, opened the door of his
room and was enabled to see the form of
a Negro man sorting over the various articles
iu the store. Upon advancing on
him, the thief made his exit out of the
window through which he had entered.
Mr. Nelson pursued him for some distance
and was rapidly gaining on him,
when the Negro began to fire on Mr.
Nelson with a revolver. As Mr. Nelson
was unarmed, he then gave up the chase.
The election at this place on the 13th

votes cast, and everybody seems very well

NEWBOLl) SURRENDERS.
Slayer of J. H. Turner Now In the Hand*
of the Law.
Columbia State, Tuesday.
State Detective Newbold, when he
saw fit, surrendered to a friend, and
had a message sent to Governor Ellerbe
that he was coming to Columbia
yesterday morning.
On the 10th of the month, W. H.
Newbold shot and killed J. H. Turner
in Spartanburg county, and, although
an offer was made for the arrest of
Newbold, he went wherever he wanted
to without interference and seemed
to be able to travel over several counties
at his will. Newbold said, and,
no doubt, with a great deal of truth,
that he could have made bis escape
had he wanted to ; but at no time did
he iutend making his escape. He said
yesterday that he has never been out
of the state except for the 12 hours
that it took him to get into the state
through North Carolina.
From what can be learned, it can
hardly be called an arrest, so the account
will have to be of the surrender.
Newbold's movemsuts up to last Suuday
have been outlined iu The State.
He said that he came into the city
limits Sunday and left here Monday
morning, and has since that time been
in Chester and York counties, where
he has been given the protection of
friends. Sunday night at about miduight,
he surrendered to his friends J.
T. Thomassou and W. H. Cowan at
Fort Lawn, which is about 20 milts
from Chester. Iu a buggy Newbold
went to his borne, where he spent what
was left of the night. Yesterday
morning Thomassou went to Magistrate
G. Williams and was sworn in as
the special deputy to take charge of
Newbold. Previous to this Cowan had
made an affidavit that Newbold had
shot and killed Mr. J. H. Turner, and
that, upon information and belief, Newbold
should be arrested. With this
warrant Thomasson held Newbold and
brought him to Columbia as his prisoner.
Of course Thomasson did not
have to use any force in making the
arrest. He of all men knew where
Newbold was at all times ever siuce
they first got into communication.
Upon the arrival of Newbold at his
home in Chester, he sent his brotherin-law
out to advise the sheriff of the
couuty that he had surrendered and
was at that time uuder guard, and also
asked that a similar message be conveyed
to the chief of police. Both of
these officials were duly notified and
weut to his home to see him,aud, fiud
ing that everything was regular, took
no further part iu the proceedings.
It was stated that Newbold has, since
he came iutoSouth Caroliua, been cared
for by his dispensary and other friends.
He had had the benefit of their protection
and care. The statement is
made that every night, while he was
asleep, some of his friends kept watch
so as to warn him in case any effort
was made to arrest him, and whenever
Newbold traveled some one went
ahead to see that there was no interruption.
With everything ready, Newbold
started for Columbia yesterday morn
ing from Chester aud arrived here at
1 o'clock. He was accompanied by
Thotnusson, who held the warrant,
John Stevenson, W. H. Cowan ami
Henry Howie, all of whom had been
his staunch friends. Kewbold looks
much thinner thau when he was lust
in Columbia, and he said that he hud
been quite sick ever since the killing.
He looked rather worn and depressed,
and in his conversation would often
say that he felt very badly about the
killing aud would have given anything
had it not happened.
When the party arrived in Columbia,
backs were taken for the state
house. Governor Ellerbe was engaged
at the time and did not see any of the
party. He asked to see Attorney General
Barber, and to get his opiniou as
to what, if anything, he could do.
Mr. Barber was of the opinion that
there was nothing for the governor to
do, and that Newbold was Thomasson's
prisoner and that he would have
to notify Sheriff Dean, of Spartanburg,
who would have to come for
Newbold. Governor Ellerbe acted
upon this advice aud declined to interfere
with the process of the law.
Thomasson and Newbold then went to
the penitentiary, where they will await
the arrival of Sheriff Dean, who was
notified of the arrest, and that the
prisoner was here waiting on him, by
Thomasson.
It appears that the only reason
N^whnld had for not surrendering be
fore, was that he did not care to be
tried at the terra of the court just
closed, a ad that raainly because he
did not liice to be tried before Judge
Aldrich. It appears that Newbold
did not like Judge Aldrich after the
trial of the Broxton bridge people, and
got the impressiou that Judge Aldrich
cared too much for public seutiment.
This came pretty straight as the cause
of Newbold's alleged objection to
Judge Aldrich.
As to the story of the killing, Newbold
had nothing further to say than
what has already been published, which
is that he claims that it was a case of
accidental killing. He said that he had
no intentiou in the world to kill a man
he had never seen in his life, and that
it was an entire accident. He said
that if he bad wanted to kill anyone
he could have killed a dozen and have
gotton off on the grounds of self-defense,
as he has taken arms away from
people who have attacked him.
Newbold did not care to make any
statement with refereuce to his case or
what he expected to do in the line of
his defense, further than that the killing
was accidental. He has employed
Mr. Thotnasson as his attorney.
Newbo'd said that he would go
wherever Governor Ellerbe directed
him to go, aud if it was thought he
should go to Spartanburg he would do
it. He said he had no fears of harm
being done him in Spartanburg, as he
felt he would be given a fair hearing.
Newbold said that he had requested
his wife to keep all newspapers for him
and that he would read them and see
what had been said about him.
It appears that Newbold has had
about euough of the detective work,
as he was reading law a.id intended
applying for admission to the bar when
the killing occurred.
* .4
.Newborn nas been given meuicui attention
since be left Spartanburg county,
immediately after the killing.
Quite a number of Newbold's friends
yesterday gave him assurances of help,
and he said that be felt thab he was
not alone in bis figh^.
His case cannot come up before next
March, when court meets in Spartanburg,
with Judge Beuet presiding.
Sheriff Dean was telegraphed during
the afternoon that Newbold was here
ready to be turned over to him. It
was expected that he would come to
Columbia last night for his prisoner;
but he did not arrive. Parties also
weut to meet Mr. Thomason, Newbold's
lawyer, but he did not come.
As matters uow stand, Newbold is
in the penitentiary in charge of Thornasson,
who holds the warrant for his
arrest. He will remain there or not
as Sheriff Dean requests. If he wishes
to take bis prisoner back to Spartanburg,
he is responsible for him.
MERE-MENTION'.
Joseph Mansfield, a member of the
Georgia legislature, has introduced a bill
to legalize prize-fighting in that state; but
it is hardly probable that the bill will become
a law. Senators and representatives
are gathering in Washington to be
ready for the opening of congress on the
first Monday of December. President
McKinley is the recipient of a number of
Thanksgiving turkeys from different
parts of the country. The estate of
the late Henry George includes property
to the value of about $8,000, and the copy
rights of his various books. The
Luetgert case, in Chicago, is about to be
called for trial again. It is reported
that the "concerted powers" of Europe
are about to make a demonstration
against Turkey with a view to compelling
the withdrawal of Turkish troops
from Crete. Katie Silverstein was
married in New York one day last week
to Isaac Goldstein. General Weyler
has reached Spain and is giving Sagasta's
government a lot of trouble. The general
is very popular with the people, and
the government seems to fear that he
might stir up a revolution. Notwithstanding
recent frosts, it seems that the
yellow fever has not yet entirely disappeared
in New Orleans and adjacent cities.
There were eight new cases and three
deaths in New Orleans last Sunday.
ELLERBE TRIES TO HELP.
A Circular Letter Addressed to tlio Various
Governors III Behalf of Cotton.
At the solicitation of Presideut YVilboru,
of the South Caroliua Cottou
Growers' convention, Governor Ellerbe
has asked the co-operation of the governors
of the various cotton growing
states. The followiug is the note Governor
Ellerbe sent bis fellow governors
asking them to uame delegates to the
Atlanta convention:
State of South Carolina,
Executive Chamber,
Columbia. S. C., NOV. 20, 1897.
To His Excellency, the Governor of
Dkak Sir?The Cotton Growers' convention
of South Carolina, which met in
this city a short time ago, decided to hold,
in Atlanta, Ga., on December 14, 1807, a
convention of cottou growers, composed
of delegates from all the cotton-growing
states.
The purpose of this convention is to
consider the price, sale and marketing
of cotton, and to devise, if possible, some
plan by which the producers of this great
staple can command for it a price above
the cost ot its production.
We realize that it is essential to have
concert of action among the farmers of
the south. Therefore, I earnestly urge
that practicable farmers be appointed
from each state. The representation that
we ask for is one delegate from each congressional
district, and two from the
state at large, to assemble in Atlanta,
Ga., on December 14, 18117.
Trusting that you will see tit to cooperate
with us, I am, very respectfully,
W. II. Ki.lkkuk, Governor.
? The city of Loudon was swept by
a terrible tire last Friday. The fire
had its origin in the explosion of a gas
eugine, and, on account of a high wind,
was quickly beyond control. It raged
for a whole day in a quarter of the city
that was built up with great ware
houses and factories. At times more
than 100 fire engines were playing on
the flames. The fire was finally checked
by fire proof buildings. There were
no fatalities ; but the money loss
amounts to about 110,000,000.
SOUTH CAROLINA NEWS.
State's Finances In Good Shape.
Governor Ellerbe is very much delighted
that the state has not had to
pay any interest this year. Although
the finances of the state at one time
were exceedingly low, Governor Ellerbe
and Dr. Timraerman arranged so
that there would have to be no loan.
Now the taxes are coming in, there
will be no need for a loan. This is
the first time in many years that it
has not been found necessary to make
a loan of from $50,000 to $150,000
during the wigter.
Rowdyism In Greenville.
Two more shootings are added to
the bloody record, says a Greenville
special of Saturday to the Columbia
State. A Negro frolic on the place
of J. F. McCullough, Thursday night,
had the usual termination, erfding in a
free-for-all fight and general shooting.
A Negro named Beeks was shot and
died the next day. Another was fatally
wounded and several others less
seriously hurt. It is not known who
shot the man who died. Two white
men, Charlie Langley and John Barker,
took several shots at each other
last uight near Locust, this county.
Barker was slightly wounded. He in
turn fired at Langley with better aim
and the latter may die from the wouud.
Barker will surrender if the wound
proves fatal; but he has not yet been
arrested.
Horrible Death In Charleston.
Henry Heyward, a Negro lineman,
was electrocuted in Charleston last
Friday night while working with the
numerous telegraph, electric light and
other wires. On reaching out for a
wire in which there was no danger, he
lost his footing and fell across other
wires, completing a powerful circuit.
He was dead in three seconds, and for
several minutes afterward, a blue light
was seen to be flowing from the place
where the wire came iuto contact with
the unfortunate man's body. As soon
as possible after the accident, the current
was shut off from the powerhouse,
and the city was thrown in
darkness. As the result of the darkness,
a Japauese performer who was
performing in the theatre, sustained a
serious fall, which came near proviug
fatal.
Murdered For Money.
VV. J. Lee, a respectable young white
man living on W. H. Hearon's place,
was brutally murdered last night, says
a Bishopville special of Saturday to
the Columbia State. His body was
found this morning by bis stepfather,
lying iu a pool of blood in his lot, with
his head split open. The murderer
theu entered the bouse and cut open a
trunk with the same bloody instrument.
and robbed it of $15 aud a pistol.
Lee's wife was away from home. A
Negro boy, Charlie Williams, who
lived with Lee, was arrested and has
confessed so far as to show where the
bloody axe with which the deed was
done was buried, though he charged
another Negro, West Jennings, with
having committed the murder. He
narrowly escaped lynchiug this afternoon,
and Magistrate Scarborough hurried
him off to Sumter.
CIVILIZATION IN MEXICO.
Loyal Policemen Who Lynched an Attsasnin
Sentenced to Death.
The great trial of Arroyo's murderers
is over, says a Mexico dispatch of
Monday, terminating this evening
with the sentence of death pronounced
on 10 of the police officials
and police concerned in the butchery
of the helpless wretch whose audacious
attempt on the presideut caused
so profound a sensation here. The
jury was out over seven hours, returning
its verdict at 5 p. m., and
Judge Flores delivering nis connrmatioti
verdict at about 8 o'clock. The
prisoners stood up aud the gendarmes
preseuted arms during the deliverance.
The court room was crowded to the
utmost capacity, for the closing scenes
in the trial were most dramatic. Villavincencio
and Cabrera took the virdict
coolly, as in fact did all the prisoners.
Bellido was sentenced to 11
months' imprisonment, and Cueller,
who brought the knive9 at the order
of his masted, the late Inspector General
Velasquez, and also Bravo were
acquitted and set tree. The condemned
men don't yet seem to realize their
perilous position. Their lawyers entered
an appeal in each case. Public
opinion sustains the verdict.
Swearing In His Guards.?Emperor
William, of Germany, had occasion
a few days ago to swear in some
new recruits for bis guards. He used
the following formula:
"My glorious forefathers look down
upon you from the vault of Heaven.
The statues of kings, and above all
the monuments of the great emperor
look down upon you when you do
your duty. Remember the perilous
times our country has had to traverse;
and if your work is hard and hitter,
remember it again. Sta.id firm, with
unshakable faith in God, who never
forsakes us. Then, my army, above
all, my guards, will always, in peace
or war, be equal to their task. It is
your task to keep faithful to me
whether against foes within or foes
without, and to obey when I command,
and to stand by me."

AND, of course, the time-honored fruit
cake will be in evidence. If you
want to secure the best results, you know
it is necessary to have strictly first-class
fruit. That's the kind we have. We have
in stock Seedless Raisins?extra choice?
in pound cartoons, London Layers and
the Muscatell. All fine goods. We also
have extra choice Citron?the very best?
and choice Currants. Let us furnish your
fruit. We will be pleased to do so, and
you will be pleased with our goods.
FOR lO CENTS.
We have Roasted Coffee put up in pound
packages for 10 cents. Try it. It is cheaper
than 5 cents cotton.
ABSOLUTELY FREE.
We have a most excellent Laundry
Soap that we are selling at 5 cents a cake,
and with each cake goes a spool of Black
Silk Thread, absolutely free. You can't
buy the same-quality and quantity of
thread at a dry goods store for less than
5 cents.
IT IS A AVASTE OF MONEY
To buy inferior goods of any kind. How
much have you wasted in buying cheap
Pocket Knives? Come to us and get a
genuine IXL or Joseph Rogers Knife.
We have both, and are selling them at
close prices, considering quality, and at
much less than would be possible had we
not bought them before the present rouber
tariff law went into effect.
WE THOUGHT WE WOULD
Call your attention to the fact that we are
selling a 3-pound bucket of the best Leaf
Lard for 25 cents. Others, we hear, are
charging 30 and 35 cents for the same
quality. GRIST COUSINS.
GLENN & ALLISON.
BUGGIES.
The very best quality at the
most inoderate prices. That's
why we are selling so many.
Our competitors are puzzled to
understand this, and yet it is an
open secret that our Buggy and
our guarantee are "out of sight."
Remember you have our guarantee
and not that of the factory.
Come and see our Buggies. We
will make the terms suit you, so
don't bother with the small dealer
who stands shivering over the
low price of cotton. We have
on hands a good selection of
both Mules and Horses.

PAY IT NOW.
TO parties indebted to me for GUANO,
I will say that it is necessary for them
to settle their accounts ON OR BEFORE
THE FIRST DAY OF NOVEMBER,
for the reason that I can't grant further
indulgence at this time; and it is absolutely
essential that debtors govern themselves
accordingly, for I have no desire
whatever to send a man to see you, and
thus starting the neighbors to talking.
Let everyone take this matter to himself
find give it the attention I am sure it deserves.
Cheaper Than Ever Before.
My supply of BAGGING AND TIES
are now in stock and both are of the very
best quality, and I am offering them at
prices that will relegate the "second
hand" quality to the rear. The fact is
that the price at which I am offering the
new goous should induce the farmers to
dress every bale iust like a dude. Come
and see us and let us give you prices.
WE HAVE $2 KIND TOO.
Oh ! yes, we've got the $2 kind too?the*
everyday variety that we've been selling
all the time; but we've got something
better now, if you've a mind to pay for it,
and the difference in quality is much
greater than the difference in price. Yes,
we've got 100,000 LONG LEAF HEART
PINE SHINGLES, which we are offering
at the low price of 82.40 per thousand.
They are the nest shingles ever put on
this market.
Plastering Hair, Lime,
LATHES AND CEMENT can always
be found at our store, and contractors or
purchasers of large lots can expect close
prices. J. H.'RIDDLE.
CAROLINA BUGGY C07
NO BUGGY
ON THE MARKET
IS EQUAL to the CAROLINA BUGGY
at the price it is sold. It is not
only the best buggy built in the southern
states ; but is also the best finished, in
painting and trimming, while its durability
is equal to almost any requirement.
The painting never allows it to present a
shoday, makeshift appearance at any
stage of its existence. While it is made to
sell, it is also made to satisfy the customer
ana represent h vaiue euimi u> me price
for which it is sold. It is LIGHT AND
STRONG and always built of the very
best material to be had, and in all stages
of its construction it is passed through a
thorough, severe aud critical inspection
by one whose first thought is to nave it
built as nearpefection as human skill can
accomplish. We make tbein to order
or keep them in stock, and it will be to
your interest to consult us when in need
of a vehicle.
THE CINCINNATI
BUCCY
Can always be purchased from us and at
almost any price. We can furnish them

MY new books of samples of fall and
winter clothing, made to measurement
and to order, and guaranteed to fit,
have arrived, and they are just what you
might expect from first-class merchant
tailors like LAMM & CO. The prices are
even lower than last season, and all customers
who buy their clothing from me,
have to be satisfied before they take them
away. The clothing is always gotten up
in the best style, and the most workmanlike
manner, and you are requested to
[. all and examine the samples before buying
your winterclothing.
