% Dame Columbia has prov
en herself to be a most de

She received in a queenly
manner the thousands of
country cousins whom she had

Saluda, S. C., had the mis
fortune of losing her brick
school building on Wednes
day night last. It was burn
ed about ti o'clock, having
caught by coals rolling from
the fire-place. The Masonic
fraternity used the second
story for a lodge and the par
aphernalia, valued at $200.00,
was burned. None of the
property was insured.
Excavations are being made
for the foundation of Colum
bia's fourteen story office
building. Next in order and a
fitting counterpart would be
a sky-scraping hotel. That

perhaps the larfiest cotton
manufacturer in the South,
fell, on Friday last, from a
scaffold while inspecting one
of his new mills at Gainesville,

by the fall he lived only a few
hours. His untimely demise
is not only a great loss to
Spartanburg but to South Car

enough and to spare but o?
industrial kings, such as Capt
Montgomery, we need more.

THE FAIR PROPER.
In the stalls booths ?

dance. While the exhil
were not so numerous as d
ing former years they w<
very creditable. The go<
bad and indifferent were
mingled and commingled as
form favorable impressic
and pleasant memories. I
on the whole it differed t
little from the scores of fa
previously held. Notwil
standing this sameness, w
is there that can stay aw
after having once attend
the fair. The cramming,rm
ming and jamming of the ti
mendous crowd that was
attendance o n Thursd
proves the verity of the foi
going assertion. Laborii
under the aches of their bon
and bunions some were hea
to say that this was th<
last fair, but ere anot

The officers of the fair a
sociation were very material
aided in making this occasic
a success by the co-operatic
of the Elks, who have becon
quite a factor in the social li:
of cities. Besides the usu
side attractions and mone
making schemes on the fa
growls wnich proyMo bc
deverson and entertainmei
for many of hhe visitors, th
Elks provided street ati- -a<
tionsand music which adde
zest to the occasion. The th<
atre managers had booke
several good plays for theatr
goers and there were dances
notably the assembly, stat
and carnival balls, providei
for the lovers of the dance
And last but not least arnon,
the sources of amusement
were the promenades o
Main street from dark till th
early hours of the morning
Gay lads and lasses were tos
sing balls, throwing confetti
beating tin pans, ringing cov
bells blowing horns and rais
ing merry cain generally,
For several years the chief
est among the attractions o:
fair week has been the anmr
al Clemson-Carolina footbal
contest. The already large
crowd was greatly increased
on Thursday by the arrival oi
the fathers, mothers,brothers,
sisters and sweethearts of the
Clemson cadets and South
Carolina college students. The
game was called at 11 o'clock
with odds against Carolina for
they had been defeated for
6 consecutive years by the
Clemson "tigers." From first
kick of the ball it was evi
dent that Carolina would be
an easy winner. The game
was snappy, full of interest
from start tj finish. Contrary
to the expectation of all, be
fore the game was called, the
score stood 12 to 6 in Caro
lina's favor. College spirit ran
high, each side true to its col
ors but the Clemson tigers
took their defeat gracefully.
Considerable feeling how
ever developed later but their
differences were settled ami
cably. The gate receipts net
ted about $1,000 for each
team. Carolina now holds
first place among the teams
of the state.
The members of the State
Agricultural and Mechanical
rociety showed their appreci
ation of the efficient service
rendered by re-electing the
officers at the annual meeting
held on Friday last.
The people of the state are
indebted to the officers and
members of the society for
their untiring efforts, withou
