Rev. T. G. Her- 1 Tjert preached a magnificent sermon. ] "from the_text: "He came unto His 1 own and His own received Him not," and at the close he invited all professing Christians who wanted to live nearer, to the Lord to come to the altar for prayer ' Numbers came, and the chancel waa crowded, so that others knelt in ! the aisles and at their seats. He then asked those who were not Christians but who wanted to be saved to kneel for prayer and several knelt. After the congregation was dismissed numbers remained for an after service for those who were interested. i It was a most affecting service, and at no time have we ever seen so many people in Bamberg on their knees expressing a desire to live a better life. Truly it looks as if we were on the eve of a great religious revival in Bamberg. Mr. Herbert is essentially an evangelical preacher. All his sermons are delivered with the idea of saving souls, and he stresses the love of Christ for mankind. His sermon Sunday was a great effort. While his only daughter lay critically ill in Sumter, his heart was full of the desire to see men and women brought nearer to God, and it exemplified his 1 great love for his fellow-man. s * > CARLISLE FITTING SCHOOL. Invitations for the Commencement * Exercises Issued. t Invitations have been issued for the commencement exercises of the Carlisle Fitting School in this city. These exercises will begin on Friday, May 29th, at six o'clock p. m., with a competitive prize drill for a medal offered by the commandant, Capt. P. Stokes Connor. Competent judges will decide this contest, and no doubt it will be interesting, as the boys have taken considerable interest in the military feature. Saturday evening at eight-thirty o'clock the Kilgo and Sheridan Literary -Societies will contest for the declaimer's medal, offered by Rev. H. B. Browne, and the debater's medal, offered by Mr. H. J. Brabham. The declaimers from the Kilgo Society are: Messrs. Jno. W. Bell, Jr., and Clifton Rhoad. Those from the Sheridan Society are: Misses Leonard Folk and Beulah Hires. Debaters: Ralph Westbury and Hey ward Hodges, affirmative; Clyde' Yongue and Kirkland Graham, negative. Query : Resolved, That South Carolina should have compulsory education. Sunday, May 31, at eleven o'clock a. m., the annual sermon will be preached by the Rev. Walter I. Herbert, presiding elder of the Charleston district. Rev. Mr. Herbert is considered one of the strongest ministers in the South Carolina confer- , ence, and will no doubt sustain his reputation. The sermon before the Y. M. C. A. will be preached at half past eight Sunday evening, the thirty first, by Rev. J. B. TraywiCK, or juenmark. Rev. Mr. Tray wick's long and useful career as a preacher eminently fit him for this duty. The literary address will be made Monday morning, June first, at eleven o'clock, by Hon. E. D. Smith, who needs no words of introduction nor commendation to the people of the entire South. Mr. Smith hasn't ' a peer in the State as a platform speaker. The graduating exercises will ( take place Monday, June 1st, at 8:30 , p. m. 1 The following is the class roll: Edna Chitty, Maude Edwards, Jennie Graham, Jennie Herren, Margaret Jennings, Lurline McCown, Annie Bellfe McGowan, Elizabeth McMillan, Kathleen Muller, Flossie Murdaugh, Sudie Ritter, Janie Belle Sanders, Pritchard Shuler, William Fender, H.

Incidental to the commencement exercises, there will be a game of base bail Monday afternoon between . C. P. S. and Branchville, so that on | the whole visitors will have a varied progranf. The school has done fine work this year. Perfect-harmony between students and faculty "has existed. The health record has been unsurpassed by any school in the State, and the year winds up with bright prospects for the future of this institution. t ^ The Herald's New riachinery.

Carter, Esq., went to Barnwell last week and made a motion before Judge Robert Aldrich for bail for Willie Williams, the negro who shot and killed Norman Williams, another negro, on Mr. G. E. Hutto's plantation near town about two weeks ago. Williams is now in jail, but bond will no doubt be granted as soon as Judge Aldrich returns home. it seems from the circumstances that the killing was clearly an accident. A crowd of negroes were down at a branch and these two boys, each being about seventeen years old, had pistols and begun to shoot in order to frighten some girls who were in the party. The dead negro fired his < i - j> 1 A.1 pistol a lew times anu uieii vyhiic Williams wanted to shoot some. His pistol, acheap affair, would not shoot, and while working with it, the dis- charge took place, the bullet striking Norman Williams and killing him. rhe coroner's jury were of the opinion that it was an accident. Although they did not bring in a veriict to this effect, members of the jury have made affidavit that they considered it an accident from the testimony taken. The dead boy's mother says she thinks it was an accident. State of Ohio, City of Toledo, 7 rb Lucas County. fbS Fratik J. Cheney makes oath that he Is senior partner of the Arm of F. J.
