The News ,nd Herald has
opposed the cuttig of wood on
the street, but it is much more
opposed to the hewing of tele
phone poles. If this work has to
be done on the streets, why not
get a saw-mill?
The editor of The News and
Herald apologizes to Editor Hoyt
of the Greenville Mountaineer
for having associated his name
with the wrong paper and to the
editor of the Greenvill News for
having given the edi.,or of The
State such a fine opportunity for
giviug him a rasp.
" If the man who sent the editor
of the Rock Hill Journal a quar
ter to pay some one to get Till
mam to resign unconditionally,
thought he was obeying the
biblical injunction to cast his
bread upon the water, will find
the promise fulfilled in its return
before many days, for there will
never be any one to cill.
Just in order that the matter
may not be forgotten attention is
again called to the necessity of
the removal of th jail. Nothing
of course can be done till th
next session of the legislature,
but we want the members of the
Fairfield delegation to know that
not only the grand jury but a
very large majority of all the

1OSSY DALE ITEMS.
Well, Mr. Editor, I will try
again to reach your office with
another communican as I signal
ly failed two weeks ago to do so.
I was in hopes my letter would
have turned up 1 by this time, but
such seems not to be the case.
It has been lost through the mail
somewhere. In it I tried to give
you my reunion trip to Columbia
and join my praise with others
who so graphically described our
grand reception by the citizens
of Columbia. It was the most
pleasant meeting I have ever at
tended in the State, and I hope
our executive committee may be
able to secure our next reunion
at the same place. I will not at
tempt at this late day to enter
into details again for it is rather
late to do so.
I am glad to see that the Gov
ernor so completely shut off the
Tillman-McLaurin embroglio and
gave the people of the State one
year's rest. I cannot see any
just reason for their action any
way, and it is remarkably strange
that after Tillman's recent elec
tion for six more years in the
United States senate without
any opposition that lie should
force that course on the junior
senator just to show him up to
the people. McLaurin was elect
ed as a Democrat in a Democratic
primary, and it would seem to be
a better course to pursue for the
State Democratic committee, if
they consider that McLaurin has
violated his pledges to the party
and is in full harmony with the
Republicans, to say so and re
quest his resignation. No need
for a primany this year, for judg
ing from their first joint meeting
it would not be of any special
educational advantage to the
State. We are not in a position
to cast censure too quickly and
to make grave charges before
time has developed things. We
may not agree with the junior
senator in all things, but he
claims that he will and can sat
isfy the voters as to his Democ
racy and explain his votes in
Congress to our satisfaction. Let
us hold judgment and see what
will transpire. The -Gcvernor
replies pretty .t1tty to the senior
senator in answer to his charges
against him as to his reasons for
re"uig the resianations. ;Now
I think tipisode i~s''gand
we will have no more of~tn
affair; I hope so at least.
Our farms are in a pretty blue
fix ai this time. It has been
rainiug for several weeks past
and farm work has been greatly
retarded. There is considerable
cotton to chop yet, and what has
been chopped needs the plow
hadly, for it is very grassy, as
the grass was cut out while wet
and is grewing in the middles.
Corn needs work badly. The
crop is materially injured now.
The oat crop is not as good as
expected. Wheat is tolerably
fair. Gardens are very backward.
It has been the worst year to get
seeds up I ever saw. The melon
crop is also very backward.
Mr. Jas. H. Disaker has been
suffering for several weeks with
a very severe abscess, but I am
proud to report some improse.
ment in his condition.
Mrs. Laura Gibson is on ia visit
at Hyatt Park to nurse Mrs. F.
K. Mann, who is. sick.
Mr. Mossy MLaim returned from
the shops in, Colum~bia to recu

fliss Flenniken's Recital.
It is customary at the Presby
terian College for Women to have,
at intervals during the month
preceding the commencement, a
series of recitals in the different
departments, exhibiting the re
sults of the year's work.
One of the most successful of
these entertainments was given
last Friday evening by Miss Janie
Flenniken, the first young lady
who has received a certificate in
the department of voice culture.
Seldom is a programme of such
classic selections given at a col
lege for young ladies. Miss Flen

song she rendered, showing a
voice well rounded, finished, and
of sympathetic quality. She has
the reputation of having been a

and broad culture of her teacher,
