'-What's got into the women:" saii a frienA to me the other day as I sttod gazing at that marvellous steeple on top of the Tribune office where sits the youthful successor of Horace Gree!ey, looking down upon a na'ighty world. What do ycu mean? I said. Why, havn't von ob served. he said, that a number of women have suddenly disapeared of late and of wholm no c tie has been discovered? and it suddenly occr red to me that I had It is some years since I had occasion to refer to this very subject but at that time it was the disapearance of meu. and it is not until you go to the police headquarters that you find out how frequent the disapearances are. It seems to be a very terrible thing to have a man or woman sud denly blctted out of existence. yet a n~umber of such cases have taken place with:n the past few weeks. To refer to the past: A gentleman well known on the Stock Exchange started for home one day just after the adjournment of the Stock Board. IIe walked up Broad way with a friend as far as St Paul's church. there he stopped and conversed a few moments, then crossed Broadway to go down Ful ton street on his way to his home in Brooklyn, and that was the last that was ever seen or known of him as far as this earth was concerned. le was a man past middle age, of strictly temperate habits, of ample fortune, with a happy home, a lov ing wife and affectionate children; his business relations were of the best, all his accounts were square, his health was good, no signs of in sanity were ever seen in any of his family, and yet the man was utterly blotted out from the face of the earth and has never been heard of fr om that day to this. A still more remarkable case occurred in Brook lyn in the case of a well known ar tist. He was sitting down in his studio just at evening, awaiting his supper. He sat there in his sr1oking cap, dressing gown and slippers. A ring came at the door bell; it was the news carrier with the "Brooklynt Eagle." His wife asked him to go down to the door for the paper; he went. and no mor tal eyes, as far as we know, have ever seen him from thlat hour to the present. T1'he list is a long one, and as long as it was confined ex clusively to men it was bad enough, but now the case is altered, we have nt lost a man in a month that we could not reasonably account for. There was either, a woman missing about the same ..me or he had been speculating in Wall street with somebody else's money, or he was short of hi employer's fu.nds. But there is not one of the ladies who has disapeared for the past few weeks who was not of the highest respectability, and like Cesar's wife above suspicion. One of them, an unmarried woman of thirt y, an only daughter and one of the most estimable ladies in Brooklyn-hon ored, respected and worthy of it who had everything in thi-s world to make her happy, and she went out of her home early the other morning and has never been seen since. Her parents have been al most distracted for weeks past; they have the sincerest sympathy of the entire community; they feel that it would be a relief if they even knew that she was dead. Last week a lady by the name of Hart disappeared and she has not been heard from. One of the saddest cases was the mother of Little Kleina Lena that used to play with Joe Emmet in "Fritz in Ireland." She was a sweet, cunning little creature and she died during the performance of the piece. The child was the idol of her mother and her death so preyed upon her mother that her reason fled and last week she wan dered away from her home but was fortunately discovered by friends after an absence of several days. Whenever she was left alone she would get out little Kleina Lena's little dresses and shoes and weep over them by the hour, begging her little lost one by endearing names to come back to her. At .last her reason failed and her ontly desire seemed to be to follow the little an. el who had gone before. SThe news of John McCullough's fatal malady th,ough not altogether unexpected, was felt severely in Naw York where he is well known, and has hosts of friends It is a mistake to suppose that John Mc Cullough was ever a dissipated n,n, and being perfectly acquain ted with his professional life for twenty years I risk nothing in say ing that there is not one man in a thousand exposed as he has been to all sorts of temptation from boy hood who has led as abstemi-us and correct a life. People who look at the p-'t,,rinance of a trag. e,y and who see the desperate en ergv required to carry the piece to its final climax. little think that it is sa;.ping the life of the man who d, iLhts them. When the piece is ened his nerves are all unstrung. he cannot sleep. and finally in siver desperation takes soiiiething to give him a moment's rest and paCe. ~Booth. Kean.

Mr. Beecher's position in the coining election is exciting the live liest attention in the City of Brook lyn where he has reigned so long without a rival. The position lie has assumed may not disrupt Ply mouth Church. It is not expected that the trustees will reduce his $25,000 salary. but it is equally cer tain that many staunch friends who who stood by him in the bitterest trial of his life, have bid him a per manent. good bye. It is intimated by many w.io know him that his ad vanced age. his terrible trials nd the herculean labors that he I as imposed upon himself, have brou .ht on softening of the brain, and tiat the great Plymouth pastor who I as breasted the fierce storms of over seventy winters is at last about to succumb to the inevitable. Some of his former friends deem this a mercful construction of his present conluct, while many others right within the pale of the Con gregational church have doubted his soundness. Dr. Storrs, the honored pastor of the Church of the Pil grins and one of the most eloquent divines in V:ie world, has not spoken to Mr. B3eecher for many years and has refused to take part in any re ligious conference with which Mr. Beecher was connected. Mr. Bye cher is no longer in the position that he was at the time of his trial; le was then comparatively poor. and had to mortgage his house for a few thousand dollars he loaned to Theodore T lion. To-day he is rich, he has ree ved from Plymouth Church since hi trial over $200,000. His receipts horn his writings, his lectures, weddings, &c , have been enormous; his lectures alone fre quently brinaging him $500 per day. it is understood that Mrs. Beechier has assum d the control of the fi nancial department and the result is a healthier condition of the bank account than when the Rev. Henry Ward man,.ed them himself. But his increased wealth has not added to his popularity, and there has not been a day in forty years in Brook lyn where tLe public faith was so shaken in ltim as it is to-day. W ho ever gains by Mr. Beecher's polit ical change, it is certain Mr. Ilee cher himself has lost what lie never will regain. Our fall fashions are now out in a perfect blaze of glory; and although magnificent, almost beyond the pow er of description, they are cha. ac terized by an exquisite taste to which we have been strangers for many years. Instead of the glowing monstrositi s that were so fasion able three or four seasons ago the colors are mostly subdued, and e ven where they are of the brightest hues they are blended in such exquisite harmony as to be perfectly delight ful to the eye. All the goods look costly and yet all my female friends assure me that every thing is cheap as dirt and that silks and velvets absolutely cost nothing. I Lope this is true, for no doubt I shall be be called o-i to invest before the season is over. I fancy I see in the prevailing styles a positive elon gation in the skirt, which looks like again sweeping the sidewalks. I hope not, but if fashion says so, it's no use to hope. Politics are jest a bilin' and Tam many is just waltzing about, beg ging for some one to tread on the tail of its coat It is fine cool weather for a fight or anything else.

THE LUTHERAN SUIT. MESSRS EDIToRS: In 1753 or 4, one hundred and thirty years ago, George III, King of England, granted to John Adam Epting and Christian Dickert-the former, a Lutheran, and the latter a Presby terian-one hundred acres of land, then Granville, now Lexington Co., S. C. According to tradition. in 1756. these adventurous gentlemen assisted by the few settlers, all Ger man immigrants, built a small log house for the purpose of worship ping God a. cording to the Presby terian and Lptheran creeds, and named it St. John's church. The Presbyterians were fe .v in number, and found great difficulty in pro curing the services of one of their own ministers to occupy the pulpit in their humble log gabin Perhaps on account of their profound "The ological learning," their services were required to supply the churches in the few towns and cities then in S. C: hence, Faber, Hoheimer, Houser, Wallorn and others, all Lutherans, were the principal mm isters, who had the pastoral charge of the members of St. John's church, until about 1824. Then Jacob Mouser, a Lutheran minis ter, who hailed from N. C., a man of very limited education; bub with al a man of some practical "Theo logical knowledge, who possessed ample eligious qualities to edify his congregation in that day. I remember well, the first sermon I ever heard was preached by the Rev. Jacob Mouser, at St. John's church in 1832, when I was a mere boy In 1826 the descendants of these old German settlers, built a new house for worship, which was also named St. John's Church. The name of St. John's will not surprise any one who is familiar with some of the old settlers of the Dutch Fork. I knew a very elegant old man who was so passionately fond of the name John, that he named all of his sons John, which were seven in number, John, John Jacob, ,John George. John Friderick, &c. About the time, when nearly all of the vacant land had been taken up. some of the members of St. John's Church suspecting that the Eptings and Dickerts, might at some future time asseit a claim to the church land under the title se cured by their ancestors, surveyed it in the night, and cleared it out of the Land Office, as it was called, and claimed it as vacant land, which however, was as worthless as the paper it was written on,as there were no laws in S. C. confiscating the King's grant, and the King's title had long before been regis tered in the Land Office at Colum bia, S. C. In 1831 or 32, the Rev. Godfrey Dreher was called to the pastoral charge of St. John's Church, who I believe at that time was pres ident of the Lutheran Synod of S. C. This change created dissat isfaction with some of the members who preferred the Rev. Mouser.. The objection against the Rev. Godfrey Dreher was that he preach ed the doctrine that Christ was ac tually spiritually present in the eu charist, while the Mouser party was led by the Rev. John C. Hope, who had just entered clerical life, just from Gettysburg Theological Seminary, Penn., with some talent as a pulpit orator, who in 1852 gave up the mfinistry, and chose po litical life, which on account of his sensual desires was more appro priate,and who gained some notorie ty as a legislator,being always on the side of economy, and low taxes. He was popular with the people of Lexington County, and represented them in both Houses of the Legis lature for a number of years. He believed or rather preached that the bread and wine was only an emblem of the body and blood of Christ, and that He was in no wise present at His own established fear. This condition of affairs tended to widen the breach between the followers of the two factions, and continued with hostile feelings between the parties until 1837, when the Rev. Godfrey Dreher withdrew from the S. C. Lutheran Synod and attached himself to the Tenn. Synod. I think that, how ever, the S. C. Synod notwith standing his withdrawal preferred charges, and ordered his expulsion from their Synod. Imn withdrawing from St. John's Church, the Rev. Dreher drew with him a little more than one. third of the members; however, not like Satan, who withdrewv with his tail one third of the stars from Heaven, when his Satanic majesty was cast down, but by his affa ble manners, and gentle voice teach ing them the fundamental princi ples of Christianity taught by four fifths of the most learned Protes tant Theologians at the present time, and unaniinously by the Church of Rome, who believe that Christ is personally present at the supper, and is in the bread and wine. The Dreher party was equally as intelligent, and as zealously at tached to their leader as the South Carolina Synodical party was to their leader, who had a preacher among them who preached that there were infants in hell not more than a spau long. I think however, that if ignorance ever gets to be bliss some of the members otf botli parties of St. John's Church in the Dutch Fork will be exceedingly happy. When the Rev. Godfrey Dreher withdrew from the S. C. Synod, his followers were in possession of the key tn the chnrch, and the title to the church land Every effort was made by the S. C. Synod ical party notwi:hstanding they were in full possession of the - moonshine vacant land title," to get the key to the church and the title to the land. Both the key and title were demanded in my presence when a youth. This unsettled and unsatisfactory state of affairs continued for three or four years. The two parties were arrayed against each other. which finally culminated in a doctrinal discussion, held publicly at St. John's Church, between the Rev erends Miller and Brown, mein hers of the Tununesee sYnod, and Reverends Hope and lierley of the S. C. Synod. When I as a b.-liever in Christi nity look lack, and x. amine into the merits of the trouble at St. .John's Church, I feel that the levil has always had his emisa ries among that people; an11d they make no effort to r sist him or he would flee. The Dreher party was called "Henkellites," and the other "H p ites," or "Soap-tails.'' I remem bar well, in my boy days, how I dreaded to meet some of the older men, who were sutire to ask me, if I was a "Henkellite' or a "Soap-tail." Finally through the influence of Geo. Eicheiberger, who was an earnest advocate of peace, with his big heart and w ole soul succeeded in effecting a compro mise, by giving the Dreher party the second and fourth Sundays in each month, and the Hope party the first and third. Thus ended the strife through the influence of Geo. Eichelberger that. had ex-sted for a series of years; but the devil has infused new life in his emi saries, and they are pushing for ward his majesty's work. to gain v.ctims for his infernal regions. Shame ! shame ! to you professors of Christianity I Let your leaders like Saul, who had brought the wrath of God upon him and his people, crawl in the stillness of the night to the hut of some Dutch Fork witch, and get. her to conjure forth the spirit of Geo. Eichelber gher, who will announce to you your doom. Let the horrors of despair which drove the wretched King of Israel to the dark cave of Endor for com fort, warn every one of you not to forsake the plain path of trust and your duiy to God. PEACE. For the Herald and News. A MECHANICAL MONSTROSITY. Passing Mr. J. W. Boozer's shop one day last week, I observed a curiously constructed apparatus near the shop, by the side of the road. I had never seen just such a contrivance and thought that possi bly it might be ou, of Mason's Cot ton Harvesters come to test its capacity in the stone hills. But upon closer approach, I concluded that I was mistaken. The idea now occurred to me that it might be a fool harvester, and I executed a rearward movement with rather more haste than dignity,and located myself in a fence-corner, in a briar patch, on the opposite side of the road and took up the position of "dc-fence." Upon recovering my bearing. I reflected that I had not heard of such a machine in the country, and knowing no road where it could.travel without crea ting great consternation and alarm, I knew it could not be such an affair unless it had dropped down from heaven. Trhis, however, I finally concluded could not have been the case, for I saw it had not gathered in Mr. Boozer, the pro prietor of the shop. So I thought I might at least venture a recon noisance. Emerging from my de fensive position, somewhat scratch ed, but still curious, I asked Mr. Boozer if the thing would bite. He replied that he thought it was harnm less when at rest, but could not vouch for it when in motion. I now examined it as best I could in my excited state. The hinder part somewhat resembled a wagon in that it had two wheels. The fore part I could not cipher out. It had somewhat the appearance of a ~hreshing machine, a sewing ma chine, a saw-mill and an aligator. Whether one of these or all four I could not make out. Upon inquir ing of Mr Boozer what it was, I was informed that it was a mechan ical monstrosity, and fearing the affair might start off, I left for home, ANONYMOUS. THlE LATE JUDGE GLOVER. South Carolina never had a son who loved better his native State, and in the dark days of her mis fortunes she had no truer sympa thizer. Judge Glover was a:ways noted for his scrupulous honesty in all the affairs of life and for his urbanity of manners, He was gen erous, entertained at his home ele gantly, and in. fact he always car ried out the old South Carolina idea of hospitality. In 1879 he was appointed Master for Orange burg County, and filled that posi tion not only with satisfaction to the Bar but with distinguishad abil ity, illustrating his high conception of duty and his love o! the law which he made the ruling passion of his life. Of Judge Glover it can, with as much truth as of any mnan that ever lived, be said, that he ww' not only a jurist but a patriot. At a negro church the following was sung as a hymn not long since : June bug got de golden wing, Llghtnin' bug de fiame, Red bug got no wing at all, Rut ha git rdar alliesa. DEFERRED LOCALS.

New berry can now boa-t of two of the best weekly journals ii the St:t. If our esteemed contemporary will pardon the suggestion, we would say that we concur with the Press and Banner in thinking that NEWS-HERALD would have been : more appropriate ai:d sig niicant n:une tan the one selected.

She has hangs and they are right be coming.-Temperance Worker. TheNEWBERRYHERALD AND NEWS ha' come out with its new hearl. It is not very pretty but the paper is first class de-pite its "ugly mug."-Sumter Watchman and Soutdhron. It strikes us very forcibly that our bn-thren of the press generally do not take to our new heading. Some like it and some don't. The report of the majority is against us. We there fore rise to a question of privilege. Not to a point of order, because it wouldn't be well taken, the liberty of the press being respected. In quoting the remarks, good, bad and indifferent, of our friends (we don't copy compli ment"ry notices only) we hope our readers won't think that we are "run ning our head in the ground." We just must say something or our head will burst. It has been knocked and "banged" by our exchanges until it really aches. It would be too painful to bear were it not for the few sooth ing pats it receives. Bat it has been spared the harde=t blow-it hasn't yet been called a dude's head. Enough though has been s:id about it to make it feel sick ; it seems that it neeas the attention of Dr. Shriner or Dr. Smith. Won't some of the P. D.'s (Doctors of the Press) now prescribe for it? For the past month or two it has floated on the breezes "from where the snow capped mountains kiss the northern horizon to where old ocean ripples o'er the southern shores" that the NEWS AND HERALD has a new head which is unbecoming, although its pulse is acknowledged to be all right. Our hea,!-light will continue to shine. It is like the torch of truth, the more it's shook the more it shines. Our ex changes knock it into pi and try to ex tinguish it in the sea of journalism. They shake their gory locks at it, but like Bancho's ghost it will not [stay] down. They crush it, but It rises again "to assert the majesty of Its suprema cy." In the rosebud garden of the newspaper kingdom it may yet linger 'like the last rose of summer,left bloom ing alone, while its lovely companions are faded and gone." In conclusion, gentlemen of the press of South Caro lina, we are sorry our head doesn't suit you, and had we known that It would have brought down such a vol ley of hot shot from your batteries on its devoted lines, we would certain ly have asked for an extra meeting of the State Press Association and selec ted a head by a unanimous vote. Improving The town of Newberry shows her citizens to be awake, with all their eyes open. The rapidity with which Mollo hon Row filled up is an evidence. Scarcely had the pamnt upon the shelv ing dried when they were occupIed by clothing, hardware and stationery; these three stores have passed the sum mer ordeal, and are now happily float ing on the broad fall season ; and last week two others, juLst completed, were filled with bacon and other stomach necessaries, and a first rate stock of cabinet furniture. Mollohon has never carried bedsteads or bureaus before. The McCaughrin corner is growing Into beautiful proportIons, and wIlla ford two fine store rooms, to which is added the ineat and eligible block of Mr. T. C. Pool, on Friend Street. This block will afford space for four pros pective millionaires. We think that these are signs of the times, and that Newberry is ad vancing all along the line. ________ Luiu. The Augusta Erening News says that Lulu Hurst only made *2,500 clear by et' trip to the North. The item going the rounds of the press that she brought home $40,000 Is untrue. An other paper says that Lulu professes to have had it revealed to her that her supernatural powers will be taken away fromn her before she is twenty years old. A very intelligent gentleman of this town says that he has alw~ays been of the belief that Lulu Hurst is possessed of a devil, and he is strengthened in this belief by the revelation of a me diumn that the work performed by the Georgia girl is the work of five Chero kce Indian spirits, as published In a recent issue of the Sunny South.

Patrick Walsh, the ed itor of the Augusta Chronicle has our thanks for a copy of the Trade Review of that excellent paper. The Recieuc is not only a highly credi. table typographical production handsomely illustrated and printed but as a review of the trade and the business outlook of Augusta and the Sta e of Georgia cannot be ex celled. A writer to the New York Obser ver asks if Adam. being born of a beast, (suppose of an ape) had any bringing up, hefore his soul was put into him. Did he remember his mother ? What associations of his former condition remained in his new life. The Observer not be ing able to answer the questions, suggests that the writer send to Prof. Woodrow, Columbia, S. C., for the desired information. We feel interested and would like to hear from the Professor. Don't Forget It. When we say write us the news, we express our desire for information of current events-not long and tiring accounts of a private dinner to which you had previously been invited, or anything of that sort. There ought to be an asylum for those afflicted with cacoethes scribendi. We don't want anything merely "to fill up with." We can attend to that. Send us the news.

THE STATE SUPREME COURT. SYNOPSIS OF BECENT JUDICIAL DECI, SION. Partnership-Action against Partneri Maybin. Survivor. vs. Moorman, Executor -No. 1,586. During the existence of a mercantile partnership, R. Moorman, one of the concern, being a subscriber for ten shares in the Bank of Newberry, charg ed himself with $1,000, drawn from the firm and used by him in paying for the stock, which stock stood afterwards on the books of the bank as his individual property. The partnership proved in solvent, and the plaintiff, as survivor of the firm, Instituted this action against the execntor of the said Moor man. In which he prayed that stock and dividends accrued thereon be adjudged the property of the firm and be turned over to the plaintiff as survivor there of. The action is in substance an ac tion for the recovery of personal prop erty, and the right of action must stand or fall upon the question of title, legal or equitable, ini the plaintiff. The Supreme Court decides: That as to the legal title, the plaintiff has no standing. Each partner can bind the firm within the scope of the part nership. In the absence of fraud or conspiracy, each can draw from the common till-for their own and individ. ual purposes, charging themselves at the same time with the amount so drawn. They can pay their Individual debts by giving credit to their creditor on a claim due by him to the concern, when bona fide done. Survivors of Kirkpatrick & Co., vs. Green et al., 4 McC., 137. In the absence of concealment of the transaction and of all purpose secretly and Improperly to appropriate a por tion of partnership assets to his own use, and in the presence of the fact that he charged himself upon the books with the amount drawn out, under the law applicable to partnerships and the facts of the case, he had the right to do so, and having done so, he became a debtor to the concern for said amount, The stock so purchased became his in. dividual property, and Is not subject to the equitable claim of the plaintiff, This i the law Independent of the fact that Moorman was a salaried etmployee of the concerrn, with his salary as sl ary unpaid at the time. With this fact appearing there is still greater reason why the trausaction should be impeachable. Judgment below, Opinion by Simp. son, C. J. Filed .July I, 1884. Messrs.
