Senator Tillman's continued
efforts to find some way of purify
ing the state dispensary is a
striking argument that the thing
is impossible. The only thing is
to get rid of it altogether.
Col. Lumpkin's entrance into
the senatorial race and his early
withdrawal therefrom reminds
very much of the young man who
goes through college by going in
at the front and right out the
Chester is arranging to make
use of power from the Great
Falls, provided 2,000 horse
power can be used, and it is. very
probable that the full amount can
be disposed of. It is hoped to
have this power not later than
next January. Winnsboro must
have this power too. It will
mean great things for the future
of this town to bring it here.
"Lyom explains why he took
double pay" is the misleading
headline of a number of papers
that would make it appear that
the man who has made it o hot
for the grafters has also been
guilty of taking graft himself.
What he explains is that during
the month of January in the city
of Columbia he performed by
extra hard work two separate and
distinct duties for the state of
South Carolina, for each of whilich
be received pay. And that's all
there is to it.
The inspector of rural routes
was here the past week and he
has filed with the officials in
Washington an adverse report as
to tha roads of this county.
This means that unless- some
thing is done at an early date to
better the condition of these
roads that this service will have
to be cut off on some of the
routes. Its continaunce is depen
dent upon the improvement of
the public highways. Surely for
the want of giving this all im
portant matter the attention it
deserves the people are not going
to allow themselves to be de
prived of so good a thing as
this rural mail service, which is
proving such a great boon to
those living beyond town limits.
Let them get busy on the roads
and make secure to themselves
not only this privilege of having
their mail at their doors, but the
manifold blessings that come
from good roads. It is getting
close to .the season when the
farmers can spare the time from
their crops for wo:-k on the
roads. If they will only do it,
it will prove the most profitable
work that they can do.

The Fourth was the occasion
of a picnic at the Cooper school
house, which passed off very suc
cessfully. -The attendance was
not as large as usual, owing to the
threatening weather and several
other picnics also coming o2 on
that day. Still those who were
fortunate enough to be there all
report a pleasant time.
Crops throughout here are
very good, but so much rain has

A Gift to the Library.
Mr. T. K. Elliott, Jr., of New
York has recently sent a set each
of Bulwers' and Harding Davis'
works. These twelve volumes
will add very much to the library
and this thoughtfulness on the
part of one of Winnsboro's sons
in the nation's metropolis is very
much appreciated. Now, who at
home will follow the good example
set and contribute some books, if
only a few in number, to the
library. With a number of the
small gifts the usefullness of the
library which has come here to
stay will be greatly increased.

Mr. [I. E. Pressly who graduat

Columbia to take a business
course. As soon as he completes
this work he will go on to Tam
pico, Mexico, where he has been
offered a position as a clerk to
the American consul. This is
quite a good position for him and
one that his many friends feel
that he will fill with credit to
himself. His father, Dr. Neill

Death of a Promising Youth.
Alexander Douglass, the oldest
son of Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Doug
lass of Gainesville, Fla., died at
their home on June 30th after a
very brief illness. He was only
nineteen years old and was a
youth of unusual prowise, having
borne off a number of school
honors. The esteem in which he
was held was shown by the un
usually large floral tributes, in
cluding the one of the military
company of which he was a mem
ber. Alexander made m a n y
friends in Winnsboro on his visit
to his grandfather, Mr. A. S.
Douglass, about three years ago
and they will regret to hear of
his untimely death.

MR. THORNWELL ELECTED.
Superintendent of Mt. Zion Institute
to Succeed Mr. Baker.
A meeting of the board of trus
tees of- school district 14 was
held Wednesday morning in the
office of Douglass & Douglass.
The resignation of Superintene
dent L. T. Baker, was read and
accepted and a fitting expres
sion of appreciation of his labors
made in the following resolution:
"Whereas, the board of trustees
has been informed of Mr. Baker's
election to a position in the Uni
versity of Sonth Carolina and
would not stand in the way of
his accepting a position so de
Resolrod, that the board here
by accept his resignation with
great reluctance and that in do
ing so wishes to assure him that
it has the fullest appreciation of
his service during his three years
in Winnsboro as a teacher in the
class room and as a citizen of the
community. Under his able
managment the high standard of
Mt. Zion in the past has been
fully sustained. While he will be
greatly missed, he carries with
him the very best wishes of this
board for his increasing success
and usefulness in the position to
which be has been elected."
Immediately after the accept
ance of Mr. Baker's resignation,
the board at once went into the
election of his successor and the
unanimous choice was Mr. J. H.
Thornwell, Jr., who has been his
assistant for the past three years.
This tender of the position to Mr.
Thornwell was quite a compli
ment to him and came as the
natural result of the satisfactory
manner in which he has filled his
place. He is a growing young
man, a hard student and will
devote himself to his larger duties
with such application that he will
be sure to meet with success.
His successor~ has not yet been
Only 82 Years Old.
"I am only 82 years old and
don't expect even when I get to
be real old to feel that way as
long as I can get Electric Bitters,"
says Mrs. E. H. Brunson, of Dub
lin, Ga. Surely there's nothing
else keeps the old as young and
makes the weak as strong as this
grand tonic medicine. Dyspep
sia, torpid liver, inflamedkidneys
or chronic constipation are un

Dr. HI. 0. Judd Dead.
Last Tuesday Dr. H. 0. Judd
fell from an area wall at Saluda,
N. C , whither he had carried his
wife for her health, and broke his
hip. The shock upon his system
was so great that, though the
wound at first was not considered
serious, death resulted Thursday,
the immediate cause being heart
failure. His wife, and two
daughters. were with him at the
time of his passing away. His
remains were taken to Macon,
Ga., for interemnt, a daughter be
ing buried there. Dr. Judd was
not a strong man. Twenty years
ago he resigned the pa&.torate of
Trinity church in Columbia on
account of his health. He then
went to California, where he did
some very effective missionary
work. In 1891 he returned t,
Macon. About four years ago
he became the rector of the
churches at Chester, .Winnsboro
and Ridgeway, making his home
at the first place mentioned.
Later he gave up the Chester
church and became rector also of
St. Timothy's in Co'umbia in
connection with the other church
s, removing to the latter city.
Dr. Judd's work was so ar
anged that be had but little
time in Winnshoro other than
for his regu'ar appointments.
He deeply impressed himself
apon all who knew him as a man
f decide~d abaihty and as a devout
man of God. e nding his life in
caring a dI doh'g for his fellow
man in ..'.m' and out of season.
He was Tbout 653 years of age
and in hi death the church has

servants and humanity a true

The commission appointed to
namine into the financial con
:litions of Fairfield county, con
isting of Messrs W. D. Douglass,
'. S. Brice and R. S. Spence, has
~ompleted its work and filed its
*eport with Governor Heyward
s provided for in the act under I
chh they. wereapponinted. Asa
this report which is very long and
could not be had in time for this
issue, will be published in fu'l
next week, only brief mention of
it is given here. Tbe total in
debtedness of the county Jan. 1,
was found to be ~$17,112.16,
which together with the loan
from the Sinking Fund of $7,400
and the note to the Good Roads
Machinery Company of $1759
will bring the total indebtedness
to about s26,271,16. which varies
but little from the amount given
by Supervisor Burley in making
up his estimates for the year.
The commission, while finding
several irregular practices, makes
the very gratifying report that
there has been no dishonesty on
the part of those occupying the
position of superviaor,
A Delightful Outing.
Thursday afternoon M i s s
Mamie Jordan had a few friends
to join her for a trip to Anderson
quarry in honor of her guest,
Miss Harriet Toney, of Johns
son. The party went out to Rion
in their buggies and then on to
the Anderson quarries, nine miles
distant, on the Winnsboro Gran
ite Company's train. This proved
a most delightful ride, the down
pour of rain not even detracting
from the novelty of the trip.
This was the *first visit on the
part of a number to thi3 latter
quarry and they were greatlyP
pleased with the interesting
sights there. It was worth the
whole trip just to see this magni
ficent ledge of the finest granite
there is in America. After their
return to Rion a delightful picnic
supper was served. The party
included: Misses Mamie Jordan,
Harriet Toney, Annie McKeown,
Helen McDonald, and Nell Good
ing; Messrs Lex Durham, K. R.
McMaster, T. M. Lyles, A. E.
Davis, Jr., and J. Frank Fooshe.
C. F. Davis indeed proved a royal
host to the party, who are greatly
indebted to him and Mr. Heyward
for their many kindnesses.

bhat the retaliation should be

spent a restless night, the glad
tidings, that instead of being
shot, they were to be "exchanged
