Our community was inexpressibly saddened yesterday morning at tho re ceipt of the intelligence of the death of Miss Mary L. Yoargin at Ithaca, New York, Saturday afternoon. At an oarly hour yesterday her fa ther, Mr. It. H. Yeargin, received tho following telegrams, all being deliver ed together, bearing the same date and signed "Ella K. Hooker": "Ithaca, N. Y., Nov. 20, '03.?Mary Yeargin went out boating with an in structor yesterday. Boat was found grounded to-day, no trace of occupants. "Deepest sympathies for all. No tidings. Full details in letter.'' "Mary has met with accident. Will telegraph you to-day. Will write fully. Be patient." "Bodies not found. Parties search ing. University has offered reward. My judgment is wait." Yesterday's daily papers contain the following United Press dispatch": "Ithaca, N. Y., Nov. 11).?L. S. Mer riam, an instructor in Cornell Univer sity, and Miss M.L.Yeargin. a student, wont out rowing on Cayuga Lake yes terday afternoon and to-day their boat was found overturned in the lake. Nothing has been seen or heard of thom up to 7 o'clock to-night and they wore ovidently drowned by the over turning of tho boat. They hired a boat yesterday evening at 3 o'clock, while there was a very strong wind blowing on the lake. The boatman advised them to keep along the west shore of tho lake as it would bo dangerous along the oast shore. This they did not do and It evidently cost them their lives. "Late this evening a hunter brought to tho city an overcoat which ban" tho mark of a Baltimore firm in it. It was Identified as the instructor's over coat by a gentleman who boards at the same house with him. An effort will be made to recover the bodies by the use of a cannon. "The young lady has been a student at Cornell for two years. Her home is inLaurens county, S. C Mr. Merriam was a graduate of Vanderbilt Univer sity, lie took a post graduate course at the John Hopkins University and this was his first year at Cornell, he being an instructor in the political economy department. His parents re side in Chattanooga, Tenn., where his father is a large wholesale grocer, re ported to be very wealthy. The youn> man was passionately fond of water, was on the lako nearly every day and it was his usual custom to take some young lady with him. The parents of both the young people have been wired to tho effect that they were undoubt edly drowned. "Miss Yeargin was formerly a stu dent In tho Columbia Female College, Columbia, S. C, where she gruduatd with high honors and afterwards taught in tho same institution." It Is impossible to tell with what sor row our people heard this most deplo rable news. For a time the lingering hope was indulged that possibly a later report woidd come saying that tho young lady was Injured but not dead, but this was soon given up. The deep est sympathy was expressed by every ouc tor the stricken parents and fam ily Miss Mary L. Yoargin was born about, twenty-five years ago. Early iu lifo sho began to develop exception al traits of Intellect and character. Her girlhood was devoted to earnest and self-sacrificing industry and dili gent efforts for self-improvement. She spent several years at the Columbia Female College where she graduated with marked destinction and for a while afterwards was a teacher In the institution. Subsequently sho was a teachor in the Leesville' College and gained an onviable reputation as an educator throughout tho Stato. She was several times employed in tho fac ulties of summer normal institutes and was appointed by Governor Tilhnan a member of tho commission whose duty it was to submit plans for the proposed stato school for womon. In all those positions her ftno common sonso and talent together with the most consci entious ndolity to duty made her con spicuously useful and successful. Miss Yeargin was u most devout Christian. Sho was a member of the Methodist Churoh and a zealous work* er in tho causo of tho Saviour. An accomplished elocutionist, she was often called upon to assist in charita blo entertainmonts and invariably re sponded with willingness. For tho past year Miss Yeargin had boon at Cornell University perfecting her education. Sho was an ambitious seeker aftor knowledge and it is be lieved that had bor lifo been spared she would havo takon rank among the leading women of tho country.

Statistical Inferences. T'ne Herald of last week, comment ing on the statistics of drunkenness taken by this paper from the Mayor's criminal docket, finds that during the time that the town was dry only one case of drunkenness was entered whereas THE advertiser placed the number at three. THE advertiser was correct, as the Herald or anybody else will find by examining the entries for August 12 and September 25 ult. The Advertiser stated the number of cases of "drunkenness occurring from October:! to November 11 of last year as 11. It should have been 12, one having been entered as ."drinking'' which THE Advertiser overlooked. If we should undertake to ?0 outside of what actually appears on the mayor's books to obtain facts to the discredit of the dispensary system we could men tion various cases of drunkenness which have come under our own obser vation. We do not regard the evidences of the mayor's books as conclusive of anything: we merely take them, as Gov. Tillman docs, for indicators worth something, in our opinion a Stood deal. Of course we have no idea that when the cases were entered that the mayor, marshals or clerk thought of the exis tence of the dispensary. Wo doubt if any body else believes that they did oi ls prepared to make the charge. Since the dispensary has been open, numerous cases, (11), have been entered as ''disorderly conduct" and the distinc tion between that offence is maintained inst as it has been heretofore. It may happen that a case is so entered and that afterwards it transpires on the trial that drinking was at the bottom of the disorder and no change is then made in the entry. This may have happened in particular instances since the dispensary has been open or before. If there are as many cases attributa ble to whiskey on the books for the time that the dispensary has been open as there are for the cor responding period of last year, that tends to prove that the dispensary sys tem does not diminish the evils of whis key. If the Herald is correct in its oh timiate that during the three months and three days that the town was dry there were "six cases attributable to whiskey before the mayor and that during the five dispensary weeks there were eleven then the indication is that the opening of the dispensary increased the rate of drunkenness over the rate for dry times by about 170 per cent. The claim that some of the drunkenness under the dispensary regime is due to blind tiger whiskey is .a confession that to that extent the dispensary law's regulative fea ture lacks enforcement. The Herald says: "A comparision, however, with the bar room days, the interim between the closing of the bar rooms and the opening of disponsary, and the dispen sary times, shows t hat when there were neither bar rooms nor dispensary, 0 caSes directly attributable to whiskey wore docketed; when the bar rooms nourished, 18 cases of drunk: during the dispensary ora, 0?or just half tho number of drunks as during the. bar room times* and only It more than dur ing the period When there were neither bar rooms nor dispensary," It should be borne in mind that the '!)'' drunks referred to occurred in a period of "? weeks and .'1 days and that tho ''18" under the bat*system occurred during l.'l weoksand I days of last year, (we suppose tho Herald refers to tho months of July, August and September with it days of October, 1892.) If. we admit tlicso figures then the compari son is clearly In favor of tho bar room system, indicating that drunkenness was leas common then than now. Power Alliance, County Lecturer O. 1'.

Power, s. c, Nov. 10.?In New Har mony church a large crowd assembled on Wednesday evening, November 16th, 1803, to witness the marriage of Robert Bryson and Miss Sallie Stod dard. The church was beautifully decora ted with many colored chrysanthe mums, exhibiting the exquisite taste of the decorators. The ushers walked in and assumed their respective posi tions, then the bride and groom inar ehed up the aisle, preceded by two lovely little girls dressed in white with coronets of white chrysanthe mums, carryin baskets of the same and strewing them in the way. The bride and groom took their position under an arch of snowy flowers, facing tho waiting minister, tho Rev: T. B. Craig, who was in his happiest frame of mind, and as he, with that modesty and gracefulness so characteristic of his acts, spoko the words which bound together for ever and aye two loving hearts,thoy sounded very sweet and impressive. The bride's dross was of some light material; elegant in simplicity, but ex tremely stylish. She wore noonamonts save a single white chrysanthemum in hor hair and bosom. Immediately after the ceremony tho bride and groom ontorod their carri age and wore driven to tho house of tho bride's father where they remained during tho night, and early tho next morning took tho train for Augusta. Mr. Bryson is one of thoso excont tionly "good follow," who richly mer ited all the kind words and good wishes showered on him when he joined hands with Miss Stoddard, and there, sur rounded by numorous relatives and friends, amid tho lwwers of swoet scon tod flowers, gave his heart into the keoping of his charming-bride who In turn pledged horsolf to bo true "until death should soparato." In choosing Miss Stoddard for a brido Mr. Bryson was certainly guided by rare judgment, and in her ho has won a lady who will grace his home and tablo with a raro unarm, and will win the rcspoet and kindost rogards of all who may be so fortunate as to come within tho radius of tho sunbeam of hor gonlal amjlo, provorbial kindness of heart and accomplishments of mind.
