Dr. Ernest L. Hazelius



Hazelius, Ernest L., D. D., a Lutheran professor, was born at Neusalz, province of Silesia, Prussia, Sept. 6, 1877. He was educated at his native place, Kleinwelke, and Barby, studying theology at Neisky in a Moravian institution, and was licensed to preach by the authorities of that Church. In 1800 he was appointed teacher of the classics in the Moravian Seminary at Nazareth, Pa., where he remained eight years, having during that period been appointed head teacher and professor of theology in the theological department. Joining the Lutheran Church, he taught, in 1809, a private classical school, and then became pastor of the united congregations of New Germantown, German Valley, and Spruce Run; also conducting a classical school at New Germantown. In 1815 the Hartwick Seminary went into operation, and he was appointed professor of Christian theology and principal of the classical department. For fifteen years he served this institution, acting also as pastor of the village church. In 1830 he became professor of Oriental and Biblical literature and German language in  the Theological Seminary at Gettysburg, but resigned in 1833 to take charge of the Theological Seminary of the synod of South Carolina, holding that position from Jan. 1, 1834, until his death, Feb. 20, 1853. Among his established writings are, Life of Luther: –Life of Stilling:—Augsburg Confessions, with Annotations:—Materials for Catechization on Passages of Scripture:—History of the Lutheran Church in America. For some time he was editory of the Evangelical Magazine, published at Gettysburg. He was a most accurate classical scholar and a very successful teacher. See Pennsylvania College Book, 1882, p. 157.

Woman Succumbs to Burns

Mrs. Bunion R. Sharpe of Lexington County Dies After Two weeks of Suffering
Special to the State.
Lexington, May 9. ------ Mrs. Bunion R. Sharpe died at her home, near Pelion, this county, today at 1 o’clock after suffering terrible agony for more than two weeks, caused by burns received in a mysterious manner. Yesterday two weeks ago Mrs. Sharpe was standing before the fireplace, when her dress became ignited. Her husband was nearby at the time, but it seems that there was no water in the house at the time, and the unfortunate woman, not knowing what to do, was horribly burned, every vestige of her clothing being burned from her body.
The case has excited considerable interest in the community and all sorts of rumors have been rife.
She is survived by her husband and two little children.
Her remains will be burned tomorrow in the Lucas burying ground, near her late residence.
