THURSDAY, November 6, 1902.
In response to the inquiry of the Abbeville
Press and Banner we will state that
the honorable gentleman who now occupies
the position of Chief Justice is not a
"politician" by any manner of means.

The neoroes in Georgetown and Beau
fort counties in tliis State were completely
shut out in the election Tuesday, for
the first time since the war. Full Democratic
tickets for county offices were elected
in both counties.

The trouble in Columbia last week between
the students of the South Carolina
College and Clemson is to be regretted,
yet it is exceedingly fortunate that it did
not materialize into a grayer situation.
Let us hope that the matter is ended.

From the Barnwell Sentinel we learn
that Attorney General Gunter has ap,V
- pointed Mr. W. H. Townsend, of the Barnwell
bar, as Assistant Attorney General.
Mr. Townsend is a good lawyer, and will
fill the position with credit and ability.
' * General Gunter has made a wise appointment.
Briefly stated the results of Tuesday's
election in other States is that the Democrats
held their own but failed to carry
New York or Pennsylvania. The Democrats
won in North Carolina. Republican
majorities were greatly reduced in Republican
States, and it is highly probable
that the Democrats will have a larger number
of congressmen in the next House.
The Republicans now have a majority
there of 45, and it is expected that this
"will be reduced to 25 or less. It is stated
in "Wednesday's papers that the Demo.crats
only lacked ten of a majority in
congress, with 15 doubtful districts to
hear from. . |

Wellesley, Mass., Nov. 3.?The fact
has become known that Miss Portia
Washington, daughter of Booker T.
Washington, who failed to pass her examination
for the second year at Wellesley,
is now a student at Bradford academy.
The faculty of Wellesley refuse to discuss
the matter beyond stating the fact that
Miss Washington was not proficient in
her music, but among the students the

The Barnwell Association,
Mt. Calvary church, with which the
Barnwell Association met last week, i*
situated in a prosperous community three
miles north of Elko. Bro. J. I). Peacock
has been the pastor of Mt. Calvary for
twenty-six years consecutively, and
should his good life continue for as many
years more he will likely spend another
twenty-six years in service of the church.
His pastorate has been a fruitful one, and
he likes to talk of the blessed experiences
that have come to him and to the church
during these years that they have labored
together in the Lord. When his pastorate
begun the church numbered only about
thirty-five members, and they worshipped
in a very inferior building. They soon
erected a larger one, which has twice been
enlarged. The building is painted white
with green blinds, the aisles and platform
are carpeted, there are comfortable pews
and everything indicates a degree of attention
to neatness and comfort not always
met with. The membership has

largest of the thirty-eight that compose
the Association, numbering 172, ami the
salary of the pastor Las been increasing
from time to time until it now amounts
to $150 a year for one Sunday a mouth
preaching. Bro. Peacock has been faithful
and true, and has seen the sentiment
of the community towards all denominational
work completely revolutionized.
His has been a long pastorate, one of the
longest in the history of our country
churches, and is another evidence that
long pastorates are the ones from which
the best results are to be expected.
The Association convened Thursday at
12 o'clock, when the introductory sermon
was preached by W. M.Jones, the Williston
pastor. It was a thoughtful and
practical discourse and constituted a titting
introduction to the sessions of the
body. The congregation tilled the house
and Bro. Jones spoke with freedom and
The body was organized with the election
of Rev. A. Buist;, moderator; Rev. W.
D. McMillan, clerk; J. A. Jenkins, treasurer.
Since the last meeting the sainted
W. D. Rice, for many years the moderator
of the body, has passed away, and the
Association was organized by the clerk,
Bro. McMillan. Both the clerk and treasurer
have served many years in their respective
offices, and there seems to be no
disposition whatever to make any changes
at these points.
After organizing the body adjourned
for dinner, which was served on the
grounds. The table was a long one, and
a more sumptuous repast we "have not
seen at any similar gathering. Hitherto
it has been the rule at this Association to
hold only one session a day and for the
people to go to their homes for dinner.
The innovation this year was opposed by
some of the brethren* but the people were
so well pleased with it that it is likely to
become the rule hereafter.
In the afternoon the report on the Old
Preacher's board was read and the work
discussed by the secretary and treasurer

Doctor made one of liis best speeches and
set the cause before the congregation in
its best light. Dr. Drown has given more
than ten years to this work and has performed
a blessed service for the old
preachers and the Baptists of the State.
A good collection was taken up.
Following this discussion some miscellaneous
business was attended to, and
then Hon. S. G. Mayfield offered resolutions
on the death of Dr. W. D. Rice.
They were discussed by a number of
brethren, and in respect to Dr. Rice's
memory the body adjourned for the day.
Friday a very large crowd assembled.
The church building was crowded all day
and quite as many people were in the
yard as were in the house. The Orphanage
came up as the first subject for discussion,
and the reading of the report
was followed with a speech by Superintendent
A. T. Jamison. Barnwell Association
is one of the good helpers of this
good cause, and in addition to liberal cash
contributions sends in during the fall and
winter liberal supplies of syrup. At this
meeting six barrels of syrup were promised
by individuals and churches. Will
other churches in the low country take
note and do likewise ?
State Missions came next. Pastor C.
E. Burts, of Blackville, read the report
and made a good short speech, touching
on some of the important features of the
work. Then Dr. Bailey took the floor
and for an hour talked in the most interesting
way of the great work his 100 missionaries
are doing for the Lord and the
Baptists in South Carolina. Of course a
collection came at "he close of the discussion,
and it was a good one.
A sermon by Bro. Jamison closed the
morning session. Long before it came
this writer had surrendered his seat in

he did not hear the discourse. But those
who heard it said it was a good sermon,
which we are inclined to accept as a correct
report; as yet we have never heard
of Bro. Jamison preaching any other kind.
Along with several other visitors we
had to leave the Association early in the
afternoon. As we left the grounds Dr.
R. W. Sanders was making a speech on
Home Missions. That order was to be
followed by the reading of the church
letters, and on Satruday the other objects
of denominational work were to be considered,
with the missionary sermon to
come on Sunday.
The hospitality of the community was
most abundant, and everything moved on
most pleasantly from the beginning to the
close of the meeting. Dr. Bailey and this
scribe were met at the depot at Williston
Wednesday night by Bro. W. A. B. Newsom
and carried to his home three miles
in the country, where we were delightfully
entertained until we turned our steps
toward the meeting place of the Colleton
Associatiou. We shall not soon forget
the many kindnesses shown us in this
sweet Christian home.
Missionary W. W. Lawton was at the
meeting and was expected to make an
address 011 mission work in China at some
time during the sessson. He is looking
well and expects to visit all the churches
of the Association before he returns to
his field of labor next year.
The pastors present" as we now recall
them, were: W. M. Jones, J. I). Moore,
M. L. Lawson, C. E. Burts, W. I). McMillan,
G. N. Askew, J. D. Peacock, A.
Buist, R. L. Bass, R. W. Sanders, W. G.

The Elections Tuesday.
Tuesday's elections seem to have passed
olT quietly and without any of thenunier- ously
predicted landslides in any quarter.
At 1 a. m. it is not possible to form a
definite opinion concerning the outcome
of the congressional election. Each of
the party chairmen claims the house, as
usual. The prospect is that the majority
for one side or the other will be small, as
we said yesterday; doubtless not more
than 20. Even if this majority be Republi- (
cans it will be a loss for the dominant
party, which in the present congress has :
a majority of 43.
Of the State elections only that in New i
York has aroused very much interest, as I
it was about the only one in doubt. At 1
this writing it looks like Odell's victory.
Butthe Hill-Coler-Tammany combination
has succeeded in greatly reducing the ,
Republican majority. This has been ac- i
complished c hiefly by piling up for Coler ;
a much larger vote iu Greater New York
than was given Stanchfiekl two years ago.
Whether this is due more to Hill's generalship
or to the work of Tammany is a
question. At any rate it is clear that the
fusion vote which elected Mayor Low
has disintegrated, and that New York city
is now, as normally, Democratic. i
In Pennsylvania the Democrats under
ex-Governor Pattison have also reduced
the Republican majorities, but Quay
still controls the State, and will have a
legislature to elect his man to succeed
Penrose, also his man.
In Ohio Tom Johnson has failed to
wrest the State from the Republicans but
this is hardly other than he expected. He

Mr. Kline w^s killed near the home of

cause of the shooting can be learned, but

A. Little Experiment Worth the TryIur
Oat ol Mere Curiosity.
Between bites of the simple breakfast
ho had ordered the young clerk
gazed nervously at the restaurant
clock. It was plain he had overslept
himself and was paving the way to future
indigestion by bolting his food.
The coffee was the stumbling block. It
was hot?very hot?but the clerk needed
it badly, and he sipped it carefully,
having due regard for lii3 mouth and
But time pressed, and, with a parting
glance at the clock, he reached for his
glass of ice water and prepared to pour
some of the frigid fluid into his cup.
"Don't spoil your coffee, young man,"
said an elderly gentleman who was
eating his breakfast on the other side
of the table. "You take all the good
out of it by putting ice or ice water in
The clerk was at first Inclined to iresent
the interference, but the patriarchal
appearance of the other man
tempered his resentment.
"What am I to do?" he asked. "I am
late for the office, and I want this coffee
"Let me show you a little scheme,"
said the elderly man. Taking the cylindrical
saltcellar from the table, he
wiped it carefully with a napkin, then,
reaching over, deposited the glass vessel
in the cup of coffee.
"Salt, you know, has peculiar cooling
properties," he said, meanwhile holding
the receptacle firmly in position.
"They put it with ice to intensify the
cold when making ice cream. It is used
extensively in cold storage warehouses
for cooling purposes, and being incased
in glass does not affect its power to
any great extent"
As he spoke he withdrew the saltcellar
from the coffee and motioned to the
younger man to drink. He raised the
cup to his lips and, to his surprise,
found the liquid cooled to such an extent
that he could drink it without inconvenience.
"The uses of salt are manifold," said
the elderly man, with the air of one beginning
a lecture. "I remember once
when I was in Mexico"?
But the clerk, with another glance at
the clock, thanked him profusely and
dashed out of the restaurant? New

point and drop into the sea, afterward
appearing again in the same spot on
the hillside. The habitants tell this
story about it:
In the time of the war for the possession
of Canada a French vessel,
pursued by an English warship,
steered its course into the bay at this
point for refuge. A boat was lowered
from the side of the richly laden merchantman,
and in this thirteen men
swiftly rowed to the shore. Their object
was to secrete a chest of gold
whfph thev had hromrht with them. On I
reaching the point they drew lots to
see which of the men should remain
to guard the treasure. The one to
whom the lot fell was forced to swear
a solemn oath; by land and sea, by
night and day, by the ruler of the
nether world, that he would be faithful
to the trust through life, unless relieved
by his returning comrades, and
even after death would haunt the spot
should no one come to take his place,
says a writer in the Era.
To secure the fulfillment of this vow
his wicked associates then and there
put him to death and buried him with
the treasure. The ghostly light was
supposed to be the spirit of the murdered
man, and many persons who,
tempted by the hope of recovering the
treasure, ventured into the haunted
spot fled in terror and told blood
curdling 6tories of the horrible phantoms
and frightful sights which they I
had witnessed. The light is seen no
longer. Perhaps some adventurer
bolder than the rest succeeded in discovering
the gold, carried it off and
thus gave rest to the unquiet spirit
A Few Remedied, Cheap and Simple,
and Involving Xo Danger,
When the feet are pressed into tight
fitting shoes?high heels make the
pressure greater?by adding friction
we have a needlelike point formed In
the skin, and the greater the pressure
the deeper the point will grow. The
best preventive remedy known Is really
to go barefooted, but since this Is
not considered ethical In civilized life I
will give a few simple remedies which
may be of some value for the afflicted:
First.?Place on the corn a piece of
cold, moist linen folded several times,
wrap it up In dry linen, then go to bed.
With this treatment the bard epidermis
swells up, and after six or eight
hours the outer covering of the corn
can be removed with a dull knife.
When this treatment has been followed
for three or four days, a small needle
like growth (the corn) can be extracted
without pain or bleeding. By washing
the feet often in cold water the tender
place will heal rapidly. After getting
rid of this corn it is well to wear shoes
which are neither too large nor too
small so as to avoid excessive pressure
or friction.
Second.?In place of the linen a crust
of bread soaked In vinegar may be applied.
Third.?The best application Is to
soak a .whole onion twenty-four hours
in vinegar, then apply one of the layers
of the onion to the corn and keep It In
place by a bandage through the night
After repeating this procedure a few
times the corn can be removed without
any trouble. By either of these simple
applications this troublesome agent
can be removed without any danger of
blood poison and "free of charge."?St
Louis Republic.
Refractive Power of the Ruby.
The primitive form' of the spinel
ruby is like that of the diamond, eight
sided, which distinguishes it at once
from the oriental stone. The color of
the genuine ruby is that of the arterial
blood, or pigeon's blood, as it is
called. It Is extremely hard and after
the sapphire is the hardest of the
corundums, which renders it difficult
to understand why the earth so rarely
gives it up. Its tint is as beautiful by
artificial light as by day, and its powers
of reflection are so great that ancient
belief credited it with power of
emitting light The ancients even supposed
that it would shine through |
clothing with undiminished power.
The German Wife's Vacation.
It is a common practice in Berlin for
the wife to stay at home when the husband
and family go to the seaside. In
this way the wife enjoys her own holiday,
for there Is no housekeeping to be
done. She foregathers with friends?
"grass widows," like herself?and they
take their meals at restaurants, spend
their afternoons and evenings at popular
places of entertainment and thoroughly
enjoy themselves.?London Express.
Tea, Indeed!
When a man gets tired out and ill,
he goes fishing, returning shortly with
three wall eyed pike, restored health
and a blister on his nose. When a woman
feels that way, she hangs around
the house and cries if anybody looks
at her. It must be lovely to be a
man.?Chicago Record-Herald.
