On Tuesday morning about 2 o'eloek
the alarm rase, and quite a blaze was
seen in Mrs. Julia Fripps's yard. It
turned out to be her chicken bouse. |
The companies responded promptly
and no harm was done beyond the
burning ef the chicken house. At
uine o'clock on Tuesdsy morning Mr.
McBriie Smith discovered a blaze on
the gable end of Miss Fripp's dwelling
house and soon extinguisned it. The

Editor News and Herald, Wlnnsboro,
Dear Sir: I notice ia your paper of
June 1, some inquiries as to why the
Mt. Zion school is not in the list of
accredited schools of the South Carolina
College, and* think I should explain
on behalf of the college authorities
that they, several months ago, invited
Mt. Zion, alon? with other
schools in the State who have fcent us
well-prepared students, to enter the
relation of formally accredited schools
by "signifying their wish to accept
such relation." I quote from the
circular sent out by the faculty iviting
to this relation. We beard irom a
number of preparatory schools, to the
iramber indeed of 39, accepting the
invitation, and signifying that acceptance
as we begged them would
do. We had no response from the
Mt. Zion school, and did not, therefore,
feel that we had the right to rank
them, as we wished to do, in the list
of onr aecrcdited schools. We shall
be glad, however, to do eo, whenever
the school shall give us formal permission,
and endorse a circular explaining
the statii3 of such schools,
and express the hope that yonr most
excellent school may soon be among
