Not Dry Yet,
The 21st of last May will long
be remembered in this section as
one of the wettest that ever came
this way. The rainfall that day.
was 6} inches. As significant as
are these figures, they are not
near so impressive as the state
ment of a witnes3 on the stand in
a case connected with that day,
who when asked if a certain coat
which was in evidence to illus
trate how the clothes were dam
aged was very wet said: "Yes,
sir, they were very, very wet.
All the damp isn't out of this
C )at yet." Of course it is need
less to add that the court room
was soon filled with laughter.
That Dispensary Robbery.
Last week's issue of The News
and Herald contuined a short
note of the robbery of the Winns
boro dispensary. Later in the
week a conversation between
Charlie Hagler and another negro
was overheard, in which Charlie
implicated himself. Charlie was
then arrested and made a full and
open confession, implicating
several other negroes. The fol
lowing additional arrests were
made: Bill Crawford, John
Young, Ollie Mcllwain, Willie
Johnson, Reuben James, Bill and
Frank Johnson. A preliminary
was given them Monday and
Tuesday, but at the time of going
to press Magistrate Cathcart had
not completed his examination of
all the evidence. At least two
and possibly more will be bound
over to court.
In the case against the South
ern Railway Company for re
fusing to accept certain excur
sion tickets on a day later than
they were regularly sold, the jury
found a verdict for the defendant.
Wednesday the case of Henry
Sonneborn & Co. of Baltimore
vs. the Southern Railway Co.
came up, and occupied most (f
the day. This was a suit f< r
damages on the part of the plain
tiff against the defendant for
allowing one of the plaintiff's
traveling salesman's trunks to be
cposed in a heavy rain, and
their contents to be greatly dam
aged. The jury found for the
plaintiff $550. In a similar case
on the part of H:arzberg Co. of i,
Baltimore the jury found a ver
ict for $250..
A non-suit was entered in the
ase of Yongue vs. W. B. Rabb
In the case of Hipp vs. Doty
the jury found for the defendant.
This was the last jury case.
Several other cases were argued
before his Honor, Judge Watts, I
Friday and Saturday. The court
adjourned Saturday aftetrnoon.
The town ha~s again followed
the example of the State in the
matter of taxes and exteided the
time for payment of same to
March 31st. As there can be no
further extension in the time for
the payment of the State and
county taxes it is hardly probable
that the municipal authorities
will make any further extension.
While these extensions are of ten
times a favor to tax payers, they
sometimnes go hard on the county
and town. Just at this time as a
result of this extension of the
time, the county is having to
borrow money to meet its claims,
which are to'be paid out of the
taxes when they are collected.
As the school taxes are collected
along with other taxes, some of
the districts have no money to
their credit and so the teachers
are paid in certificates that have
to be discounted.
Premium List Adopted.
The executive committee of
the Fairfield Agricultural Society
met Saturday in response to the
president's call, and transacted
much business of importance.
The premium list of last year was
adopted in full with a fewv addi
tions and some slight variations,
1all of which can be seen in the
next issue of The News and
Herald which will contain the
new list in full. The superiu
tendents of the various depart
ments were appointed as follows:
Field crops, Hugh S. Wylie;
household department, which is
divided into four groups instead
of one as heretofore, Mrs. H. A.
Gaillrd, Mrs. W. A. B3eaty, Mrs.
W. C. Beaty and Mrs. J. N.

which was also subdivided, Miss
Mary Witherow, Mrs. G. A.
