at Mr. R M WMte's on East Trade

besides Mr. White, his mother, Mrs.
white, R P Aing and a negro man
named Eli Parks, Runseur placed
a chair by Mr. White's bed and got
up on it, raising the net with him.
After a few minutes he got down
for something and then stepped back
on the chair. He had not been
there the second time more than a
minute when he 'ell backward, his
head striking the floor. Mr.
King and Parks ran to him and
raised his head, thinking he had
been hurt by the fall, They saw
that the man was dying, and carried
him as quickly as possible out of
the room. He wis dead, however,
before he reached the hall, lie was
apparently in perfect health when
he mounted the chair, and aa the
chair was braced against the wall,
there wa3 no way for it to tilt, caus
ing him to lose his balance. It is
supposed he was seized with heart

New Discovery is undoubtedly the
the best cough remedy; that he has
used it in his family for eight years,
and it has never failed to do all that
is claimed for it. Why not try a
remedy so long tried and tested.

2jo Mouth Carolinu Convention
Could Xot Stand it Adjournment
Until the J2th.
Columbia, S. C, Oct. 3 When
the constitutional convention was
called to order this morning an ef
fort was made to limit all epeechps
in the future to ten minutes, but it
Tne section on police and munici
pal corparation was amended on mo
tion of Mr. Patton, of Richland,
after a sharp fight, so that for tiye
successive years from the time of
their establishment, municipal cor
porations can exempt all manufact
uring establishments from taxation.
Last night when & etion 31 of the
legislative article reading "the mar
riage of a white percon with a negro
or inula! to or person who shall have
any negro blood, shall bo unlawful
and void," was called up, Delegate
Robert Small presented a sensational
amendment to add these words:
And that any white person who
liyes and cohabites with a negro or
mulatto, or person who shall have
one-eighth or more of negro blood,
shall be disqualified from holding
any office of emolument or trust in
this State, and the offspring of
co habitation shall bare the name
of the father, aud shall be entitled
to inherit and acquire property the
same as it they were legitmate,"
After au all day battle this
amendment was killed aad the
original sect'uu was adopted, with
this amendment by Senator Tillm in :
"And the parties to suh marriages
shall be punished as the General As
sembly may prescribe."
The only important action of the
convention tonight was agreeing to a
resolution offered by Senator Till
man, that when the convention ad-
iourns tomorrow it take a recess
until noon on Tuesday, October 12.
This vas adopted by a ote of 83 to
38. The reason given for taking
recess were that a number of the
members were sick; a number of
lawvers would absent themselves
for salesday whether they were ex
cuad or not and that the business
of many farmers at tnis particular
lime demanded their presence a
home. The convention devoted the
remainder of the night session to
healing arguments for and against
elimating the right of dower in any
and all land3 aliened by the hus
band during the coverture.
A correspondent of the Monroe
Enquirer writes about a gentleman
who several years ago was pastor of
the M. E. church at Mt. Pleasant
"Rev. T T Salyr, of the Flea.au
Groye circuit, has just closed a very
interesting and successful meeting a
Wesley Chape, which resulted in
the conversion of twenty persons and
eight accessions to the church and
two infants dedicated to God by
baptism, and the church greatly re
viyed. Thi3 making 10G conversion
for him this year, up to date, and
baptism administered to sixty.two
children, and many more yet to be
brought into the fold before the
Conference year closes,"

Filling the Wells and Springs.
It is a pretty tough tale that
comes hvre from dear old Stanly, but
what Mr. U S Crayton, of Charlotte,
who has been down there visiting
nis brother Coonrod, says, one
would infer that new brandy had
been substituted for water for drink-
ng pui poses. He says : "I'll tell
you, people, some folks down there
have made such a quantity of brandy
this year until even the springs and
wells are all being.fiUed,"
Probably the drought, though,
has caused the welJ.3 and springs to
run dry, and the "folks" have been
forced to this as a resort.
Not one map out of ten thousand
is correct. A map uf North Caro-
ina on exhibit at Atlanta has Char
otte between Salisbuiy and Greens-
ooro. That s alright, though, tor
Charlotte can be anywhere her su
burbs are. You see. The map
maker has heard of Charlotte all up
and down the Southern, and he
thought to hit the railroad anywhere,
the location would be a small matter.
r.assy Cane 15 Feet High.
Mr. S M Heglar, of No. 1,
brought in sample molasses cane

He has f of an acre, ordinary
ground, and the cane is 15 feet
high. It is a variety the seed of
which came from South Carolina.
Mr. Heglar vis fearful that the
frost had damg-d it but he finds,
upon examination, that it is not the
least bit hurt.
