of Fairfipld county sh"t and in
stant killed Fayte Giles alizs
Henry Johnson, an esc iped cou
vict, who resisted arrest by trying
to shoot the Sheriff in the dis
charge of his duty.
About 9 years ago Giles was
convict-1 of staling a bale of
co.. )n irom W. J. Seigler of the
gtown section and was put on
chain gang for a year. In
.ome way he made his escape. A
ew weeks ago, while in that se.
n, Sheriff Hood learned that
ome one near Monroe had writ
ten a letter to Mr. L. P. Thomp
son, of Liberty Hill informing
him of the presence in that sec
tion of Giles. Sheriff Hood went
to see Mr. Thompson, who de
livered him this anonymous 14-!
-ter, which is printed in full blow.
Monday evening Sherift" Hood1
went to Monroe and early T aezisa.
imorning he and his depuzy, Mr.'
SW. D. Gilbert, started ou, from

place in question that as they ap
"Proached near thereto, Sheriff'
Xood took the precaution to send
his deputy to the house, he bei ng
unknown to Giles, to ascertamI if

Soon Fayte came up and, as he
talked to Mr. Gilbert, he grad

It was que pleasure to spend a
few hour' at Great 16alis last
Wedne -ar.v The place is known
to the people of all the nearby
counties as the one wher. a great
aunnal gathering has been held
th first Saturday in each May
for a hundred years or more.
Catawba Falls, that is the old
popular name, is inseparably con
nected with these great pienC
occasions. The changed name,
which has been the ofii::ial name
all the while, meaus a changed
condition and from henceforth
Great Falls is to be thought of
wholly from the standpoint of the
place it will bol Iii the industrial
development of this section as
the site for the development of
the powar thtt will be required
to run manifold manufacturing
enterprises both great and small,
far and near.
Before attempting 4ny descrip
tion of the work that is now go
ing on there, let it be borne in
mind that the term "great" used
iu the name Great Lalls is no
misnomer. The Falls are great
in the sense that they are the
largest water power in the whole
South, having a fall of 187 feet
in the short distance of 8- miles.
i hire is here power suffieient to
tarn the wheels of every cotton
mill in South Carolina. The
company behind this great devel
gM~eut, the Southern Power
Cniipany, is capitalized at 7 1-2
ailiUons, jamst twice the amount of
a! tue taxable property in Fair
field county as returned on the
books. For the real estate pur
chased neccessary to get control
of this magnificent power now
going to waste there was paid
more than a quarter of a million
dollars, more that one-fourth the
Value of the largest cotton mill
in the South. The men behind
this big enterprise are big in the
professional and business world.
here'is nothing small about the
The work in all its entirety is
carried on in a manner wholly in
keeping with the big men at its
Lead and the large amount of
i:apital represented. For more
ian a year a thosand men have
been engaged in pushing forward
tis great work. Fully that many
will be required for nearly that
enggL of time to bring it to com
pletion though there is good
prospects for power to be tran
nitted from this unit early in the
nest year. What hasalready been
coMplished is indeed marvelous.
Fron Fort Lawn, a s ma ll
tation on the Chester and Lan
aster road, about nine milles to
h north, there has been built a
ailroad, which will become a .1
art of that branch of the Sea
oard Air Line to be built from1
armony on the Atlanta-Monroe
:ivision to Lugoff just across the
Wateree from Camden, which 1
ranch road is assured in the
et two years and which will be

: anty .At the lower teriinus
ar this short road there is even
now a little city, that has sprung
apa it were. There is a large
autel with all modern appliances,
onveie1ntly situated, to t h e
orks, a number of smodil cottages
for the ctlcers and many cabmns
ad other improvised baildings

T?er will be three dams in

ccrie power is to be developed

of thse wili be at the poini where
th rnie divides, there being a
lar ?iaudi of rock between the
paats, plIaced here by nature, as
t were, in anticipation of the
develonlments eventulally to be
made." This danm will turn all
water to the Chester side.
About 300 yards above the
old picnic grounds, where there
is a sharp curve in the river, a
econd dama is being constructed.
It is about half completed. This
is the point where the water will
be let in the canal, which will be
several miles long. About a
mile further down this canal which
follows the canal dug by the
sstet a hundred years ago, is bein ;
built the third dan, about 60)1
feet long, G feet wide at the top
and 80 to 40 feet wide at the base
and 75 feet high in tne center.
I this danm are located severalI
fomes, which are large tubes 10

The constructing of these dams
is most interesting to the observer.
The first step is the building of a
coffer dam, which consists of a
pen about eight feet square, made
of pine polles and bolted to
gether. This is let down into the
river by rneans of a derrick and
is then filled with rock. In front
of it is placed a water tight I oard
structure, which turns the water.
Behind this temporary dam is
built the permanent dam, the
water being ket pt back on both
sides by means of these coffer
dams bult all around. The
procecs of shutting out the water
from the place of construction is
continued throughout. From
that part of the second d a m
alreatdy constructed as mentioned
above, there is now a cable bridgA
across to the island, on which the
workmen engaged in getting out
this stone go across to their work.
At this point only a few days ago
three negroes were sent out to a
rock in the stream to fasten a guy
rope. They had gone out from
the Chester side where the force
of the water is broken, but after
fixing it in place they tried the
shorter route across to the island.
The boat was caught in the
current. One caught on to a
suspend'd guy wire, anothe to a
projecting roch, while the third
was carried with his boat under
the maddening waters, where he
remained till he and his fated
vessel were blown from their
resting place by a dynamite bomb
thrown into the river's bed.
As far 'as possible every price

Dear Sir: You know, diamonds
ion't go by size. So with paint.
We make paint, one gallon of
which goes as far as two of an

hat's four to one.
You know it is true in dia
nonds; they don't go by the gal
on, do they?
If you're going to paint your
iouse, you go first to your painter
Lnd say: "I'm going to paint; do
rou want the job? and what'Ill
If he happens to know, he'll
ay: "Depends on the paint. I
an do it for somewhere about
100 or $200, whichever you like;
~100 will make a good job; $200
And jou, if you happen to have
~our wits, 'll say: "I'll take the
ood one,. wher'1l you do it?"
Painters ought, all, to know
bout paint; and jewelers ought

One gallon Devoe is better
