Dwyer Created a Stir for More S Than a Year. Many of the people of this section e will recall the Rev. A. T. Dwyer, who operated in this section for more than a year, and who left the Flat Rock section last summer. 2 Information comes from an Ander; son gentleman, who states that a 3 Salt Lake paper is on file in the pub1 lie library at Fountain Inn in Greenville county, and that the paper con0 tains an account of Dwyer joining the s Mormon church. This is not surprist ing to many people, as Dwyer had 2 changed his church affiliations quite a number of times previously. He r claimed originally to have been a s Catholic priest, (though the Catholics deny this,) and in sermons, lec1 tures, etc., he bitterly denounced t that church. The Catholics came back at him and printed a whole lot 5 of things, with affidavits attached, about Dwyer which were anything i hut nnmnlimoTitnrv \Tnst nf t.his I controversy was printed in the columns of the Daily Mail. I For some months before leaving ! this section Dwyer operated mostly in the southern section of this coun1 ty, in Abbeville and other counties. r He lectured and showed moving pic3 tures to both whites and blacks. He r had many friends who strongly be3 lieved in him and many more who looked upon him as an adventurer. I Dwyer had joined the Baptist church before coming to Andbrson, . and just before he left he made apj plication to Cross Roads church at I Starr to grant him a license to ? preach. The officials of that church . were making an investigation of the 7 matter when Dwyer left this section. Dwyer had been preaching and lecturing a good deal to the negroes, and many of the whites resented - this. Just before leaving Dwyer had : announced that he would address the - negroes at Mt. Moriah church, five - miles below the city, and on the I night in question a number of whites I gathered at a point along the route > with some hickory switches in their t hands. Dwyer got wind of this, and f did not show up at the colored I church. He left a few days after wards. 1 t While in that section Dw*yer made his home at Mrs. Jos.

Kearse, May 6.?On Saturday, May ^ 4th, Miss Cressida Breland enterP tained quite a number of young people in an afternoon picnic, on the beautiful Sycamore lawn, compli- 1 mentarv to Miss May Ceruti, of Columbia, who is visiting Miss Evelyn Brabham. Despite the heavy clouds and light showers, the girls were looking their best, and the afternoon and evening T were most delightfully spent. A perfect feast of fish, sandwiches, pickle's, [ salads, cakes and delicious ice cream was enjoyed. One of the party, of fastidious appetite, seemed a little disappointed that the very fine ' , "gator" caught was not prepared and served. However, try to be consoled this time and, hereafter, we shall know better how to please. Mesdames Lizzie and Lula Walker, of Norway, returned home last SatL urday after a week's stay with Mrs. Jno. F. Breland. Miss Minnie Lee Aver, the accomp? lished teacher of Buford's Bridge school, spent Saturday and Sunday in the neighborhood. Having closed her school at Swan? sea, Miss Gertrude Johnson is with us again. Much to the delight of her many friends, Miss Aline Kearse is at home.

It is not difficult to understand t'hy lovers of horseshoes came to dopt the horseshoe as a talisman gainst misfortune, says the London llobe. Horses were considered to >e especially liable to the machinaions of witches. This fact stands iut in all the records of the Lancahire witches and other evil hags. If precautions were not taken hese mischievous witches would ride ^ f A /\n /n f ? i rrK f AlTflf f VlO Lie uuisyes au ucau ui U15U1 u?ti vuw tills, and when the owner came to he stables in the mornings he would ind his animals in a lather and uterly exhausted. A horseshoe fasttned over the stable door was beieved to ward off such evil. There is no superstition more [eeply ingrained in all classes of soiety than that which is attached to he horseshoe. As an emblem of ;ood fortune it holds pride of place, kelson did not disdain to nail a torseshoe to the mast of the Victory, n the early part of the nineteenth entury the horseshoe was very highy prized, and there were few Lonlon mansions where it was not dismayed, while humbler folks were at ;reat pains to fasten it over their ioors. Horses were not shod either by he Greeks or Romans. The ancints were content with wrapping ibre cloth round the feet of their lorses in cold weather, or when it pas necessary to pass through miry listricts. Instead of troubling bout horseshoes they devoted their ttention to hardening the hoofs of heir mounts. * Nero, who ever strove to outdistnce his contemporaries, caused his worses to be shod with silver while is wife's were resplendent with old, but in no case were nails driven nto the hoofs. The practice of shoeag horses by driving nails into the oofs was introduced into England y William the Conqueror, but such practice did not make any headway or centuries. \ The Indians, who had no superiors s horsemen, never thought of shoeag their mounts in any way, and yet. hey were capable of performing remarkable journeys over the most difcult country. The Sandown Derby ras won by a horse running in a natral state. The race was run twice wing to the fact that three horses made a dead heat on the first occaion. Prior to the second attempt he owner of Marden gave orders for he light plates to be removed from he hoofs of his nominee, with the esult that Marden gained a comfortble victory by three lengths. Even at the present day in Japan he modern horseshoe finds a strong ompetitor in the old-fashioned sanals made of straw, which are fastned to the horses' hoofs after the manner of equine "cricket shoes." HORSE IN WELL. 'ine Buggy Animal Drops Into Well 59 Feet Deep and is Rescued. Mr. B. F. Flynn came near losing is fine buggy horse, "Katy Kline," - hen she fell into a deep well yesgrday afternoon on the premises of Ir. Luther V. Young, 707 Buncombe treet. The mare was running at arge in an open lot in the rear of be house when she stepped into an bandoned well and tumbled to the ottom, 59 feet below. Fortunately, he animal was not killed by the long all, nor seriously injured. Immediately upon discovering -nlirrVif Violrk Tl*OC ClimmnTlflfl La LJ O pugut ?* v*?-> ???v* ****** nd every effort was made to hoist er to dry land again.

There was only about three r four feet of water in the well, and ais precluded all danger of the anilal being drowned, unless she should ill head-foremost into the hole. After about six hours of labor, lose working with the animal decidd to call Fire Chief Ligon and a luad of his trusty firemen to the ascue. An easy matter it would ave been to get Katy out of the well ad this been done at first, and much tbor would have been saved. Chief Ligon responded to the call ith two lines of hose. These he atiched to a nearby hydrant and laced the nozzle at the bottom of le well. Within exactly 19 minutes fter the water was turned on Katy Lline was prancing about on dry tnd again. By means of a canvas :rap underneath her head Katy was ept from drowning as the water radually floated her to the surface. -Greenville News.
