New Orleans. January 13.—Llebers de feat of DeReszke. a strong favorite In the Merchants’ handicap was the feature of today's card at the Fair Grounds. The race was at a mile and worth $1950 to the winner. DeReszke was backed down to 8 to 10, while Lleber, opening at threes, receded to 18 \> 5. Ben Hodder, who seems over rated, set the pace for six furlongs and quit. DeReszke then went to the front but yielded in the final drive to Lleber, who was very cleverly ridden by Sewell. Decoration, who managed to land the last race, was the only success ful favorite, the heavy track telling against the talent's selections. A sale of horses was held In the paddock during the afternoon at which the best prices realized ^ Were: Erie Grecch, $1200: Blackburn, $1025: Blackband, $900; Blacklock, $500.

I _ The mention of sulphur will recall to many of us the early days when our mothers and grand-mothers gave us our daily dose of sulphur and molasses every spring and fall. It was the universal spring and fall "blood puritier,” tonic and fcure-all, and mind you. this old-fashioned remedy was not without merit. The idea was good, but the remedy waa crude and unpalatable, and a large quan tity had to be taken to get any effect. \Nowadays we get all the beneficial ef offeet of sulphur in a palatable, concen trated form, so that a single grain Is far more effective than a tablespoonful cf the crude sulphur In recent years, research and experi ment have proven that the best sulphur for medicinal use is that obtained from Calcium (Calcium Sulphide) and sold In drug stores under the name of Stuart's Calcium Wafers. They are small choco late coated pellets and contain the active medicinal principle of sulphur in a highly concentrated effective form. Few people are aware of the value of this form of sulphur in restoring and maintaining bodily vigor and health; sui pht.i acts directly on the liver, and ex cretory organs and purifies and enriches the biood by the prompt elimination of waste material. O’tr grandmothers knew this when they dosed us with sulphur and molasses every spring and fall, but the crudity and im purity of ordinary flowers of sulphur were often worse than the disease, and cannot compare with the modern concentrated preparations of sulphur. of which Stuart's Calcium Wafers is undoubtedly the best and most widely used. They are the natural antidote for liver and kidney troubles and cure constipa tion and purify the blood In a way that often surprises patient and physician alike. Dr. R. M. Wilkins while experimenting with sulphur remedies soon found that the sulphur from Calcium was superior to any otheT form. He says: "For liver, kidney and blood troubles, especially when resulting from constipation or malaria, r have been surprised at the re sults obtained from Stuart's Calcium Wafers. In patients suffering from boils and pimples and even deep-seated car buncles, I have repeatedly seen them dry up and disappear in four or five days, leaving the skin clear and smooth. Al though Stuart's Calcium Wafers is a pro prietary article, and sold by druggists, and for that reason tabooed by many physicians, yet I know of nothing so safe and reliable for constipation, liver and kidney troubles and especially In ail forms Of Skin disease as this remedy." At any rate people who are tired of pills, cathartics and »o-cRlled blood "purifiers." will find in Stuart's Calcium Wafers a far safer, more palatable and •wells* gtagaratUn rine), 30 to 1, second; Rather Royal, 99 (Chandler?, 20 to 3, third.

Afterwarls Lynched. BY W. M BUNTING. Florence. Januar 13.—(Special.)—His tory, both rellglouB and profane, relates many instances whee dreams were pro phetlo of good or I, warning those to whom they were sen to death and disas ter. which was to cone to them, or fore telling glory and pover. Joseph's dream ! of famine, whereby E*ypt was saved from i starvation, is perhap the first recorded, i Cicero learned In a Iream that he was to become the greatest of Romans. Asty ages learned In a dreun that he was to become the conquerer of Asia. The Tro jan war was foretolc to Hecuba In a dream. Alexander the Great, Julius Cae sar, Henry IV of England, Marie Au ttonette and Charles I were waived .through dreams of the manner of tiieh approaohlng ende. But coming down to our own time there are not lacking in stances quite as remarkable, as the fol lowing occurrences which took place at Gravelly Springs, eleven miles west of Florence, just before the civil war, will show: Belton Waite and Horace Summerhlll were niembere of two of the best fami lies of the Gravelly Springs section and from early youth had been bosom friends. They had studied out of the same books, shared the same sports, attended church at the same meeting house and sowed their wild oats together. This comrade ship was undlmlnlshed as youth ripened Into manhood, though towards the sum mer of 1880 Walts declined to follow In the course of dissipation set by Suinmer hill, and the latter when drinking, some times showed traits of character which his friend could not understand. Went t0 a Picnic. Waits was working a plantation near that of his father and when the crop was laid by it was usual for a series of picnics and dances to be given, which were attended by old and young for many a mile around. Including always, Walts and Summerhlll. On the Fourth of July, 1880, a big picnic was to be given at the springs and on the preceding night Mattie Waits hAd a vivid dream In which she saw her brother murdered by Summerhlll. So Impressed was she by the dream that she refused to go to the picnic and when her brother rode by she was waiting for him at the front gate to warn hinr to turn back. "Why, sis, you are growing super stitious," said Waits, "Horace wouldn’t harm a hair of my head. Go take some thing for your nerves an$l corns on to the picnic.” lint his hlgu spirit. OOU1U not lessen the Impression her dream had made and no persuasion could alter her determina tion to remain at home. That day wna a long and anxious one for the girl, spent for the most part in looking up the road to the springs for the dread messenger which she momentarily expected to see. Towards 4 o’clock In the afternoon as she had begun to hope that her fears wore unfounded, she saw her cousin, Brake Longford, coming down the road, running his horse at the top of his speed. Without waiting to be told his errand she fainted away. After she hail beer revived she was told of the tragedy, each WE DO REPAIRING RIGHT.

Next to City Hall. detail coinciding exactly with the events she had seen In her dream. Horace Summerhlll, as had been his habit lately, carried a bottle of whisky in his Jpocket and as soon as he reach ed the picnic grounds commenced drink ing. After dinner his temper had be come ugly and Waits Had persuaded him to leave the crowd and go down to the spring at some distance off. On their way they passed an old man who was employ ed by Walts' father, lying under a tree asleep. Summerhlll commenced to turn him over with his foot and kick him in such a rough manner that Walts was compelled to Interfere. "Come on Hor ace,” he said, "you cannot treat that old man like that," and taking him by the arm pulled him away towards the spring. After a little Summerhlll made an excuse to leave Watts, but soon re turned with a pistol In Ids hand. “I Am Going to Kill You.” His. sister's warning now probably flashed through Walts’ head, for Sumroer lilll, taking deliberate aim, said, “Belton, I don’t like the way you talked to me a little while ago, and I am going to kill you.” "All right," he replied, “you will have to kill me, for I am unarmed.” With this Summerhlll fired and after his trend had fallen, continued to do so with deliberate aim until he had emptied his revolver. He then fled and as soon as a posse could be collected, Col. Sam Ives, who was at that time sheriff of Lauderdale county, went In' pursuit. After several days Summerhlll was overtaken In the hills beyond Gravelly Springs and In his effort to escape, stabbed a brother of Sheriff Ivee, who was one of the posse. He was brought to Florence and put In the Jail, but the war breaking out soon after he was given a ohance to enllst/ln the Confederate army, which he did. But Justice though deferred was not to be cheated of her due. When hostilities were over Summerhlll returned to his home, his crime, though not forgotten, being considered In a man ner expiated by his service In the army. For a time all went well until his brutal nature again asserting Itself, he whipped to death a small boy who had displeased him. Tills time there was no hesitation In the minds of the men of Gravelly Springs. Without any consultation together they seemed all of one mind and when tht 1 next day they stood around and watched him slowly strangle to death at the end of a rope, all felt that It was not alone for his recent crime that he was paying the penalty, but In equal part for that earlier act of Cain.
