Miss Mary Yenrgin Drowned.
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.
"Bodies not found. Parties search

My judgment is wait."
Yesterday's daily papers contain the
following United Press dispatch":

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

al traits of Intellect and character.
Her girlhood was devoted to earnest
and self-sacrificing industry and dili

spent several years at the Columbia
Female College where she graduated
with marked destinction and for a
while afterwards was a teacher In the

educator throughout tho Stato. She
was several times employed in tho fac

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
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.

Correspondence of The Daily Nows.
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
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
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

of heart and accomplishments of mind.
