The much written about and dis cussed case of Ned Mack, the mulatto culprit, convicted of murdering his wife's step-father came to an end last Friday morning about 11:20 when the unfortunate creature was taken from his cell, and led to the gallows in the jail yard and there made to pay the death penalt'y as pronounced by the law. Sheriff E B3. Gamble gave his per sonal attention to every detail of this solemn event, aided by Mr. N. B. Thames his deputy. The sheriff, with commendable consideration read the death warrant to the condemned man in the jail, in the presence of Rev. J. M. Holladay. white, R. A. Stewart, Revs. Mose Parson. and T. L. Toatly. colored, W. .1. Muldrow, Dr. 'A. S. Tood and Deputy Thames and others. At the conclusion of the reading, with a smile on his com posed countenance. he looked heaven ward and exclaimed "God will help me." The cell was opened, Mack came out and bade good bye to those in the jail, and then without assistance and tirm step, carrying himself erect, and with a smile on his face. marched to the scaffold. He did not show the slightest determination or fear, but rather a calm resignation, In the jail vard about thirty persons were assem bled to witness the execution, while on the outside was a crowd wanting ad mission, and on the neighboring houses were many of the morbidly curious. When Mack was asked if he wished to make a statement he faced those in front of the scatffold, and in a low tone iddressed his hearers in substance as follows: "'My hour has come to go, [an not afraid to die, and though my ands have been stained red with blood, God has washed them as white As snow. I go to my Maker with no ill I will or hard feeling towards any may, ind I beg that God will have mercy on me and receive me, and that He will forgive those who had transgressed igainst me. and bore false witness igainst me, by accusstig me wrong Eully." He pr-aYed God to bless the >licers of the court and those who had athered to witness his execution. He iso praved that God would bless the ind jailer for his tender consideration )f him since he has been in prison. ( Whiskey, bad women and gambling rought on his downfallfall. and he rave out a warning not to follow in his 'ootsteps. He spoke for about ten minutes, in a I omposed manner. a part of the time vith his hand resting on the rope that vas soon to hurl him into eternity. C When Mack finished his talk Rev. t L L. Toatly, colored, read a chapter I nd Rev. Mose Parson, colored, offered tpa prayer full of impressive f arnestness, and very a ff e c ui n g. 3 Then Sheriff Gamble with his dep- t tty ascended the scaffold, pl a c e d t he black cap over his head and face, .djusted the noose around his neck, ,nd at 11:21 the sheriff sprung the trap I .nd Ned Mack left his tarthly home. t The fall was about 5 feet, notwith- n tanding this. and the fact that his b b teek was not broken, he did not -strug le, gave one or two slight shrugs of r he shoulders and he was dead. The v odv was examined by Doctors C. B. P ;ei.ger and Hagood Woods, and after a anging about twenty minutes, was cut own, placed in a coffin and turned ver to relatives, who were waiting V *nd who took it to their home near t ilver. 0 The history of Ned Mack's crime is i resh in the memory of our readers, V ut briefly it is as follows: On December 3rd of last year, Ned t lack, while in a field where there 0 everal negroes at. work on the planta- d ion of Mr. H. S. Briggs, near Silver, ' ithout any provocation whatever shot s nd killed Dave Connors. his wife's " tepfather, and while another negro C ras running away he fired into him, itting him in the arm, which had to a e amputated, and not far from the ~ lace, another negro riding on -a mule ~ ly saved himself by getting out of s he way. He then terrorized the egroes about Silver. and he escaped ~ ato the woods. A posse was organized C ere to hunt him, but he evaded arrest. g he pursuers were so close upon him .J hey managed to capture his gun, hich he had secreted under his house. C L few nights after, Mack came to Man ing, and calling Night Watchman C 'obias to him, told him that he was led Mack, and had come to be put in n a.il. Mr. Tobias turned him over to a olicemeti Clark, who locked him up, si nd afterwards transferred him to the t1 heriff. I At the last term of court he was con- a icted and sentenced to be hanged on larch 31st. At the trial the testimony y ailed to show any motive for the man's a rime, and many people were in sern- e us doubt if, at the time of the killing, a he man was mentally sound, a petition t1 sking the Governor to commute the a entence was forwarded, and refering a ame to the trial judge and solicitor he la ~ranted a respite until ;April 28th for is sanity to be looked into. Accord- a gly the Governor appointed a comn- ij ission, composed of Drs. Babcock, of ti ~olumbia: Baker and Mood, of Sumter: d Geiger and Brockinton, of Man- e ing, to inquire, as experts, into the a ase. This medical board examined a he prisoner, and reported him sane, c: ;hereupon the sentence was allowed osand. Since the hanging of Ned Mack, we re informed that while on a visit to he jail to offer spiritual assistance to he condemned orisoner, he confided o Rev. J. N. Hollady, the motive eich prompted the crime. He said v hat his wife's stepfather was a tale- h earer and had repeatedly told Mack's il wife of illict relations with other a: romen, which caused quarrels between f; hem, and although what Connors told if lack's wife about him was true, it e nraged him, and he had determined put a stop to it, and when the oppor unity presented itself he killed him. Iad this been brought ont in the trial. he people would not have signed the etition to the Governor, but thei rl ympathies were wrought upon by the e *bsene of a motive, which gave te *ppearance of the man being insane, .a Clarendon has not many hangings in , er records. The last was Scipio e hame on May 5th, 1899, for the a :iling of Ellison Butler. and we 2 ope it will be many years before it till be necessary for another hanging -y a this county. (.

Secretary. lears the ,1The Kind You Have Always Bought3 Veterans Meet. Camp Harry Benbow met last Satur day in the court house, about twenty veterans were present. Maj. A. J. Richbourg called them to order and nominated Capt. D. J. Bradham for temporary commander to preside over the meeting. On assuming the chair Capt. Bradham told of his having re ceived a letter from Commander D. W. Brailsford in which he expressed a de sire not to be re-elected Commander of the Camp, and also sent a flag which was made and presented by Mrs. Marguer ette Cuttino of Sumter formerly Miss 'Marguerette Tindal of Clarendon and one of the sponsors elected to represent the Camp at a re-union. As soon as the temporary organiza was completed. Major Richbourg nom inated Captiin Bradtham for Comman der for the ensuing term. there being no other nominations he was declared elected. Captain Bradhatm expressed his thanks to the Camp for the compli ment. and stated that it was his inten tion that Major Richbourg be placed in this oosition. but that the Major had anticipated him. and got in his motion first, but having been chosen, although being on a general staff with the rank >f Lt. Colonel, he would accept an'1 erve them as best he could. Then on the motions of I. N. Tobias, A. .. Richbourg and D. .1. Bradham, he organization was completed with he election of the following offilers: A. J. Richbourg. Vice Commander. I. N. Tobias, Adjutant. G. R. Jones, Secretary and Treas. Rev. J. M. Holladay, Chaplain. Dr. C. B. Geiger, Surgeon. I. R. Billups. Quarter Master. Dr. A. J. White, Commissary. Rev. J. M. Holladay in accepting the >osition said, he had hoped that the ,amp would have been able to find for heir chaplain a veteran. He loved the ause which the Camp represents, and s the son of a veteran who left an arm ipon the blattlefleld in Virginia, his iative State. The chair called attention to the re inion at Louisville, Ky.. and asked who vould go, there being no response he tated that it was his intention to be here, and suggested Mr. E. L. Wilkins ,o be chosen as a representative of the ,amp. Mr. Wilkins was chosea. After a statement from Treasurer ones as to the financial standing of the :amp. and its relation to the head 'amp It was decided to find out just ow much it would take to put this ,amp square on the books. The matter of organizing a Chapter >f Daughters of the Confederacy was he subject of a lenghty talk by Capt. >radham, and a committee composed .f the Camp's oficers would arrange Dr the organization of the Chapter, nd on some future occassion meet with he daughters and from them received he crosses of honor. The flag was then brought forward nd holding it up Captain Bradham, in ehalf of Mrs. Cuttino, presented it to e Camp. In his speech he recounted iany war incidents, told of men that e had seen shot down on numerous attle fields, things that oecured en oute to Virginia; his having been oted the handsomest man in the com any by some ladies at Orangeburg, nd was presented with flowers, and ow it was reported that one of these tdies kissed him. His reminisences 'ere interesting, and his memory cer tinly wonderful. The war has been ver 40 years, and from 61 to 65 the mes were stirring, then since the ar, other things crowded upon their inds, and with all these for any man > remember the incidents and details f war, and to recall scenes from a hun red battles as does Captain Bradham, e say agrain it is wonderful, and he ould devote his remaining years to riting a history of the war between 2e States. The fiag was accepted by the Camp ad at the request of Capt. Bradham, :ev. J1. M. Holladay in appropriate -ords responded to the speech of pre mtation. Major Rlichbourg then arose and Loved that the Secretary write to Mrs. uttino the Camp's appreciation of the ift. The Camp then adjourned sub et to the call of the Qommander. The followingletter was read to the amp: Panola, S. C , April 27th, 1905. aptain D. J. Bradh~am.

Died at his home in Manning, after a short illness, at 12:30 o'clock Sunday morning, Mr. Frank Nelson Wilson, in the 61st year of his age. His death came unexoected to his host of friends, and when it was announced Sunday morn ing that Mr. Wilson had passed away, the community in which he lived about 30 years was shocked and saddened. The deceased was born in Williams burg county, attended the Citadel Academy, and before he graduated he went into the war with the cadets. He was for many years engaged in the insurance business, and represent ed the strongest of companies. There never lived in this or any other com munity a purer man, conscientious in his every act-the highest type of a pious gentleman. He was a man whom to know intimately was to love. His daily walk in life was a shining example to the old and young, He always took an intelligent interest in those things which looked to the betterment of his fellowman and the community; a warm and sincere friend, and a kindly charity was characteristic of him. He was a devoted member of the Presbyterian church, and an Elder for many years. He was a man of firm convictions, after careful consideration. Frank N- Wilson was a citizen that this community loved and esteemed. He was truly a Christian, a gentleman and a patriot. The large concourse of people that attended his furneral Monday was a fitting testimony to the esteem in which he was held, and the many floral offer ings were swe.et tributes to a man whose life was Godly and whose memoi; is cherished. The services were conducted in the Presbyterian church that he loved so well, by Rev. J. M. Holladay, his pas tor, assisted by Rev. A. N. Brunson, an almunus of the citadel, and pastor of the Methodist church. The edifice was packed. and the pastor departed from his custom by delivering a eulogy upon the deceased. during which he labored to control his emotions. After the solemn services at the church the large concourse followed the remains to the cemetery, where the services were concluded, and the grave was covered with beautiful floral tributes. The honorary pallbearers were his brother Elders, Messrs. E. E. Dickson, J. F. Rhame, C. R. Harvin, W. M. Plowden, D. C. Shaw, and W. C. Davis. Active pallbearers, W. S. Harvin, C. R. Sprott, J. H. Rigby, A. Levi, J. H. Lesesne, and Charlton DuRant. Mr. A. J. White was funeral director. When the procession was passing through the town every business house closed its doors as a mark of respect. A Good Suggestion. Mr. C. B. Wainwr.ght of Lemon City Fla., has written the manufacturers that much better results are obtained from the use of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy in :ases of pains in the stomach, colic and :holra m-trbus by taking it in water as ot as can be drank. That when taken in this way the effect is double in mapidity. "It seems to get at the right ;pot instantly." he says. For sale by rhe R. B. Loryea Drug Store, Isaac M. Loryea, Prop.
