A NEGRO BRUTE LYNCHED.
THE USUAL GRIME HAPPENS IN
DORCHESTER COUNT?.
Attempted Rape Upon a Young Lady.
Wretch Trailed by Bloodhounds
to His Hiding Place.
St. George, Nov. 28.?To be chronicled
in the annals of crime for Dorchester
connty is the deed of a rape fiend, and his
summary punishment at the hands of infuriated
citizens.
Another white home has been despoiled
and another poor brute has been hunted
with hounds and bored witn oucKsnoi.
News was received here last night of
an assault by a negro upon a young lady
at Ross, a station about eight miles distant
from here, at 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon
' and immediately a posse from this place
left for the scene of the trouble.
Before night there was gathered in the
quiet little town of Ross a mob aggregating
200 or 300 men from the adjacent
towns and country, bent upon vengeance.
Bloodhounds were put on the trail at
1:30 o'clock this morning, and before many
hours passed they hSd hounded to his den
John Fogle,a negro, the perpetrator of
the heinous crime.
Speedily he was brought before his
victim and identified.
The mob then, with the victim, hasten?
v.
ed into the woods near a swamp, wnere
the fellow had been captured, and there,
to tell the dark story, is to be seen the
negro's body pendant from the limb of a
tree, riddled with shot.
Fortunately, by the brave fight of the
lady, who is a member of a prominent
family, the brute failed in his diabolical
purpose, but the lady was badly bruised
by being choked. It has ever been the
proud boast of Dorchester county that her
criminal animals contained no record of
this heinous crime.

Good Reason For Prayer.
Aminadab Jones was a Yankee grocer
in an Illinois town, who had made a
handsome fortune?not like the proverbial
Kentuckian, by minding his own business?but
in the grocery line?watering
his whiskey, sanding his sugar, foreclosing
mortgages, adding to his book account
on the sly and other ways known
to storekeepers from time immemorial.
Thinking it best to deodorize his reputation
in the community he took a pew
in the Presbyterian church?the biggest
in the place?and was admitted to their
communion. His reputation followed
him and in the course of a month the
/ , "brethren were all by the ears about
Brother Aminadab, and he was quietly
excommunicated.
He then joined the Baptist and they
had a like experience?he "spiled so quick
after comin' out o' the water," as the
Maine skipper said of the pullock-Baptist,
that he was turned out of that close communion
also. He then, as last chance for
the Kingdom of Heaven, joined the
Methodists, and in about three weeks they
also were in a quarrel about Brother
Jones.
The poor preacher, at a loss what to do
for his people qnder these conditions,
went over one Sunday morning to consult
the wisest of his church members on the
' painful subject. As he went up the steps of
the good man's house he overheard him
at mornine oraver and waited till he
should close. What was his horror to
hear the pious brother thus express himself:
"And if it be Thy holy will, 0 Lord,
wilt Thou promptly remove our Brother
Jones from this jworld and send him
straight to hell!"
The preacher could wait no longer, but
pressed in, saying: "Brother Smith, I am
amazed that any Christian should be
- wicked enough to pray as I have just
heard you!"
"Wait a minute elder," was the calm
reply: "let me explain it. If the Lord
would remove Brother Jones from earth
we should be out of our troubles, shouldn't
we?"
The parson assented.
"Ana if he were sent to hell he would
break up that institution in less than six
weeks."
Carried it Too Far.
A Chicago millionaire, George T. Cline,
had an extraordinary hobby. He was a
connoisseur of Irishmen; on nimseir he
would never spend more than 15 or 20
cents a day, he thought nothing of buying
Irishmen sumptuous dinners, with champagne,
in order to hear them talk in their
musical brogue. An Irishman once
played Colonel Cline false. He stole a
pair of boots from him. Discovering the
theft, the millionaire pursued the Irishman,
overtaking him as he was about to
enter a pawnshop with the boots in his
hand. "These are my boots; you have
stolen them," said Colonel Cline. "Sure
it was only a joke," said the Irishman.
But the inexorable millionaire hauled the
thief before a magistrate, and here again
the man repeated. "It was only a joke,
your honor." "Only a joke, hey?" said the
magistrate. ""Well, Mr. Cline, how far
away from your house had he carried the
boots wben you overtook him?" "Over a
mile, sir," replied the millionaire. "Held
for court," said the magistrate. "This is
a case of carrying the joke too far."
(QUARTERLY CONFERENCE.
Building Committee Appointed to
Erect a New Methodist Church.
The fourth and last quarterly conference
for the Bamberg charge for this year1
was held at the church here Wednesday J
of last week, Presiding Elder Marion
Dargan presiding. At this conference
the work of the year was rounded up. and
final reports made. The financial reports
were very good, and showed that this
church would meet all claims upon it in
full.

church was also appointed by the conference,
and is as follows: H. J. Brabham,
Jno. H. Cope, G. Frank Bamberg, Jno.
F. Folk, and J. A. Spann.
This committee held a meeting last Monday
afternoon at three o'clock at the bank,
and a great deal of enthusiasm was shown
by those present. It was decided that the
church be built as soon as possible. Mr.
H. J. Brabham was made chairman and
treasurer and Col. Jno. F. Folk secretary.
Plans and specifications for the building
will be gotten at once and a design decided
on, for the first thing is to find out
about what the edifice will cost. As soon
as the design is selected, the work of raising
funds will begin.
It is very likely that the new church
will be built on the parsonage lot, the parsonage
being moved back and fronting
the cross street. The church, if built here,
will be in the center of the lot, with
entrances from both streets. One great
advantage of changing the present location
is that the old church can be used
for worship while the new one is being
erected.

A Cross Breed.
A buxom negro woman who had cooked
f/M* a nnmhor rtf rpsrs in the familv of a
Jewess announced to her mistress one
morning her intention of quitting the
job.
"Why are you goingto leave us Mary?"
inquired the Hebrew lady.
"Well Missus," explained the cook.
"I's gwintah git married."
"That won't make any difference said
the lady, "there's room enough in the yard
for you and your husband; you don't have
to leave because you 're going to be married."
"But," replied the colored woman
sheepishly, "you don't know who I's
gwinetah raar'y;" and, without giving the
Jewess time to ask further questions, she
said, "I's gwintah mar'y a Chinee, Missus."
The employer raised her hands in holy
horror. "Oh Mary," she said, "have you
thought of what you're going to do ?"
"Oh, yas, Ma'am," said Mary; "we's
thought about it?we loves each uddah,

Oysters and other dainties will be
served from Monday, Dec. 7th, until the
end of the week, for the accommodation
of our friends attending court, and we are
sure they will be pleased and will patronize
the ladies largely.
The booths will be open on the 9th, 10th
and 11th of December, and everybody
interested, in a Christmas present it does
not matter for whom it is intended, can
be pleased here. One of the daintiest
booths is the handkerchief booth in charge
of two of Bamberg's belles, Misses Addys
Hays and Jennie Felder. In here can be
found a handkerchief of any kind, from
I the daintiest of lace and hand-work to
the plainest.
Then there is the baby booth, under the
charm and care of Misses Gwendolyn
Risher and Marie Stokes. They have
lovely clothes for all, from the wee baby
up to a child 4 or 5 years old, any shape,
size or kind of baby clothes. Misses Leila
Black and Inez Brabham have another
baby booth, the doll baby, and here the
little folks can be pleased; they can find
big dolls and little dolls, pretty dolls and
I prettier dolls, girl dolls and boy dolls,
little wee babies and any other kind that
they wish; they are all here.
And then, there is the sweetest of all,
the candy booth. And possibly, only
possibly, there may be sweeter young
ladies than Misses Elise Bamberg and
Margaret Eaves, but they will preside
over the candy basket; their candies will
be delicious, home-made candies of every
description. Don't forget to buy some of
it, you will be sure to stroll around by the
candy booth again. They will also serve
hot chocolate and delightful cake. You
will find their salted almonds and peanuts
very nice.
Then we find the ladies' booth, the one
whirh delights the heart of every true
woman, the fancy work booth. In here
Misses Florence Hooton and Lillian Bellinger
will be pleased to show you mamy
novelties in fancy work. Among this
beautiful work will be found the very latest
designs in modern lace, embroidery,
knitting, crocheting, drawn-work and
tatting, anything in the fancy-work line.
Everybody, from the smallest child to the
most fastidious, can be pleased here. If
you are looking for a beautiful Christmas
present for your mother, your sister, your
wife, or your best friend, this is the place
to find something different from what
others give, something beautiful, and sure
to please.
! And there is still another, the Japanese
! bootL, and it is enough to say that this
! booth, one of the prettiest, has the ease
and grace of Misses Ethel Folk and Lulie
Bamberg. They have kimonas of every size
I J ^on/1 nflior orfirloc tor*

numerous to mention, from sterling silver

The apron booth will please all. Here
we find the'bright faces of Misses Esma
Delk and Mabel Felder, with aprons of
every kind, from a fancy apron to a cook
apron, large, medium and small aprons,
old folks' aprons, little folks' aprons.
Be sure to see Miss Pet Stephens before
going out of the hall; she may be hard to
find, but don't stop until you find her.
The tree is the place to find a lot of fun,
and Misses Julia Armstrong and Juanita
Kinsey will enjoy opening the packages
with you. There is something on this
tree for everybody, old and young. The
children especially will be delighted here.
There is another tree, the fortune tree;
your fortune all in a nut shell. Here you
will find two beautiful young ladies. We
will not tell their names, but leave it to
you to find out, but be sure, when you are
looking for your fortune, to take one of
the nut shells, and not one of the young
ladies.
The merchants have been very generous
in contributing to the bazaar with the
exception of a very few. It should be
largely patronized, as it is for a good cause.
All the ladies interested in the bazaar
are requested to meet at Mrs. John R.
Bellinger's, Friday afternoon, Dec. 4th, at
3 o'clock. Don't forget the dates, Dec.
Qth 10th and 11th.
Church News.
The Methodist Sunday-school held a
special missionary service last Sunday
afternoon, which was very successful from
every standpoint. The exercises consisted
of special songs and recitations by the
children, with a short address by the superintendent.
The collection for missions
amounted to more than $20.00, and this
makes a total of over $40.00 contributed
by this school during the past year for the
cause of missions.
Next Sunday morning Rev. M. W. Hook
will preach his last sermon to his congregation
for this year, and as this is also .;

Bertie's Presence of Mind. J
When Farmer Reynolds espied young t
Bertie Thompson industriously collecting J

his best tree he stole back to the farm
house and unhitched the stuffed image of
Pongo, his greatly mourned sheep dog.
from the parlor sideboard, says Tit-Bits.
And lo! in a few minutes the stuffed dog
had been placed at the foot of the tree.
Farmer Reynolds then proceeded with
the business of the farm, and the men
wondered why every now and then he
chucked mightily.
An hour went by, and behold! Farmer
Reynolds was once more at the foot of
the tree.
"Helloa, Bertie, lad!" he cried. "What
ve doin' ud my tree, eh?"
Bertie was pale and quivering "with
fright; but he had not altogether lost his
presence of mind. c
"P-Please, sir," he shivered, "that great, 1
big dog down there," pointing to the g
well-preserved Pongo, "he chased me, r
he did, all over yonder medder, an,?an' I t
'ad to climb this tree to get out of his way!" e

The road across over the Edisto river e
at the new bridge, which goes to Orangeburg,

road in fine fix from the river to town.
Since that time it has been worked on the d
Orangeburg side, and now one can drive
through the swamp witnout the hsk or e
breaking their vehicle. You can now go ^
in a trot from Bamberg clear across the
river for miles, as all the sand beds have y
been clayed, it is a good hard road, and jj
there are no rough places in it. There is
only one piece of road that is likely to tl
give trouble. This is just across the t(
swamp, where a lot of clay has been
thrown up for some distance. This place
will cut up badly in wet weather unless
some sand is put there. a

As to Congressman Croft.; 'hJe8B
Mr. A. W. Knight, Editor The BamJffl
berg Herald?Dear Sir: Sometime agriM ,
I wrote to Col. Geo. W. Croft, our conn J
gressman, and asked him to try andsecn^ean
appropriation for draining, the lower ;R?i
part of this county and thereby prevetgfff|B|
hemorrhagic fever, which causes the deaffc:||
of an appalling number of people every -?
season. In this letter I informed him of ';
the fact that the condition had been can^j||j
ed to the attention of the governor and /
had been taken up by the State board a??
health, hnt that no funds- were* availaMeSHH
for relieving the situation. Col.
ignored the letter, probably because thte';.^ ~
section did not vote for him in the last^MS
primary,'and he has done absolutely noth- .
ing for the relief of his suffering con. - JH
stituents in this section. At the same {
time it is reported by the papers that
Croft has asked for a sixty thousand dollar
appropriation for a public building
Aiken. My object in writing this is |
call the facts to the attention of the people , $5
and let them judge for themselves as to '
whether we have a congressman who is ?
representing all of the people in tho*j|J]
District or not. Respectfully,
Jno. P. Folk. j|fh
