Photographed Bone of Arm.
Several weeks ago the little son
of Capt: and Mrs. John R. Blocker
fell from a horse and broke his left
arm near the shoulder, and as the
wound seemed to be healing very
slowly Capt. Blocker carried him
to Columbia last week for examina
tion. The surgeon made an X-ray
examination which enabled him to
determine the character of the frac
ture. Capt. Blooker brought home
an X-ray photograph which showed
the broken bone in the arm. The
surgeon assured Capt. Blocker that
the arm woald soon heal and leave
BO permanent injury of any kind.

Responded to Our Request
Last week the editor of The Ad
vertiser requested those who have
old copies of the paper and do not
particularly prizs or value them to
send them to ns. In responses to the
request, Prof. G. F. Long came in
Saturday and brought us about a
half dozen copies of The Advertis
er. One was published as early as
March 1, 1843. Another highly
prized copy was that published in
red ink on August 15, 1878, in
commemoration of the campaign ol'
187(5. We appreciate Prof. Long'8
kindness in responding to our re
quest of last week. The eopies
which he gave us were preserved by
Mrs. Long. They bear the name of
ber father, the late Samuel Marsh.
Mr. Cooper's Generosity.
La-t week in reporting the work
that was contributed in improving
the Five-Notch road through co
operation with Supervisor Edmunds,
The Advertiser made an uninten
tional error in stating what work
was contributed by Mr. John V.
Cooper. We should have stated that
he sent a two-horse wagon and
driver 6 days and in addition gave
.sn extra hand one day. This was

So well was he pleased with the
splendid work of Supervisor Ed
munds, that he gave a hog which
was barbeoued by Chef Edmunds,
making: a royal feast for the super
visor, foreman guards and convicts.
Mr. Cooper not only contributed
generously but did it in such a gra
cious manner. His kindness was
greatly appreciated by the supervi
sor and his co-workers.

Graded School Entertainment.
A large audience assembled in
the college auditorium Monday
evening to witness the entertain
ment which was given by the pupils
of the graded school. Each number
on the carefully prepared program
was thoroughly enjoyed, the per
formers winning many honors for
themselves as well as reflecting last
ing credit upon the corps ot lady
teacher who have worked so un
selfi ?lily for the success of the school
from every standpoint. Tho pro
