BACHMAN CHAPEL LETTER. A Visit To Newberry and The Lutheran Church-Two Marriages-Other Matters Of Interest. Slighs, December 17.-Last Sun day morning it was my privilege, in company with Mr. L I. Epting, to visit the home of our friend, Dr. 0. B. Mayer, of Newberry, and thence to worship with the Luther ans of the Church of the Redeemer. The Rev. W. L. Seabrook, the pas tor of the congregation,preached one of his usual good sermons. Rev. Mr. Seabrook is one of our ablest theologians. He never lacks for words and we have a right to be lieve that he is devoted to and ab solutely eoncentrating his energies upon the performance of the work he has in hand. This is the first time I have worshipped with his congregation since the erection of their new church. When I last worshipped with them their old church stood beyond Col. E. H. Aull's residence. It was a very or dinary building. The contrast be tween the old building and the new is great. To speak in brief, I am willing to say that I h...

CONGRESSMAN WYATT AIKBN. He is of Great Value to His District and Will No Doubt Take High Rank In the House. The following is from the Wash ington correspondence of the Green ville News: The three new South Carolinians, Aiken, Croft and Legare, fare about like other new men in committee assignments, and what they will get in the future will be determined by the rank they take. Legare is already recognized as a bright young man who has a future, and Wyatt Aiken's strong personality, hard sense and general capacity for making friends promises to land him away to the front as a member of the House. He can't get there in one term, but if his constituents give him a chance it is predicted by old members of the House that he will take high rank. He is the kind of fellow to make warm friends in the House and is enough of a politician to know the art of recip rocity in House deals. Legare is a man of similar characteristics, and these two fellows, with young Le ver, will mak a trio worth wa...

THB PASSING OF HAMBURG. The Town that Was Once One of the Most Prosperous in the South. Richmond News-Leader The announcement that the town of Hamburg, S. C., is to be re claimed by the State as waste land and sold for unpaid taxes is a new reminder of the vanity of human hopes and calculations and the shortness of human foresight. Far back in the thirties and forties Hiam burg was one of the most thriving and promising towns in the South. It was on the South Carolina side of the Savannah river, immediately opposite Augusta, Ga., and was established, we believe, by a thrifty German named Schultz. Some thousands of people lived and were busy there, and the town had a bauk which was known through out the South. Bills of the Bank of H1amburg were good everywhere when nearly everything else was under suspicion. On all of this thrift and hope and busy life a blight fell suddenly from condi tions which nobody had dreamed of. Nobody in Hamburg had the slight est doubt of the permanency of ...

Now that the old schedule is to be res tored we wonder how they feel about it ?-Aiiderson Daily Mail. They have a feeling of regret that the railway authorities were forced to accede to requests of those who don't know a good schedule when they see it. The new schedule the present schedule-suits Newber ry and city council so said.

How Wells Clock Striken. The great clock of Wells cathedral in England was built in 1322 for Glaston. bury abbey and ran 250 years before it was removed to Wells. The striking mechanism of the clock is very curious and elaborate. Above the dial Is a little battlemented turret, with four knights on horseback, armed with hinces. standing guard round it. At some distance froin the clock itself. near the end of the transept, is a life size painted figure, quaintly ugly, with a battleax In its hand. while outside the cathedral is a second large dial, guarded by two tall figures of knights In armor. When the gilt stars point to the hour, the painted figure (Jack Blandivir, as he is called by the country people about Wells, no one knows why) strikes the quarters by striking his heels against two bells behind him and then tolls the great bell of the clock by striking it with his battleax. The two standing knights in armor strike the outside bell with their halberds, and at the first stroke ...

There is an increase of over I eight and a half millions, but the value of country real estate shows a decrease of $535,520.

USED CATS AS CHIPS. Poker Game Between Hermits for Championship of Western New York. A correspondent of The New York Sun at Hamilton N. Y., per petrates this: The strangest poker game ever played in western New York was fought out two weeks ago by Pete Snelling of this place, better known as the "Cat Hermit," and "Old Man" Booker of Clark son, likewise a recluse and some thing of a cat fancier. The two men live about one mile apart, with the town line between them. It was in reality town against town, with cats for chips. The game grew out of profes sional jealousy, each of the players pretending to be the boss hermit in point of years, hard luck and num ber of cats. Last August Old Man Booker happened to meet Pete at the village store, and among other things declared that when it came to poker he could make Pat Sheedy hunt cover. "I am strong on it," he an nounced. "I'm husky. I haven't played for years, just because I know there is no one hefty enough to make it interesting.'' "If...
