We regretted to leave tho kinsfolk
and friends in Oconoe as much so1
as they could lune regretted our j
leaving but wc bad had a taste of
thc West and naturally felt like we
must try it again.
Then' was one of my school leach- ?
ors and some ol' my school pupils
whom I did not meet while at 1
"home." This I especially regretted :
as tho distance is so great I don't
suppose they will ever try to visit j
nie now, and 1 would have liked so
much to have seen them. We "ran"
away to keep from saying "good-bye"
to our friends. We like traveling,
and we like the West, hut we don't
like "good-bye times" ono bit.
We started Tuesday. October 1st,
from Westminster and spent the
night in Atlanta; were at Birming
ham, Ala., about noon next day;
passed Memphis and over the Missis
sippi river the second night about i
S.:tO. and woke up at Springfield,
Mo., next morning to lind beautiful
fields of corn and large orchards of
apples, wide fields of wheat just up
to a good green, and signs of frost,
the first we bad seen. We reached
Kansas City by noon tho second day
- or rather the third, as we started
on Tuesday evening late, and this
was Thursday. Kansas City is a
fine, large town, but built on hills
looked rather funny to Texans to see
such a noted city built on such a
hilly site.
Wc boarded the train again at 2
o'clock and reached our destination
about 3.110, to lind men loading the
finest Jonathan apples into cars with
scoop shovels, very much like load
ing cotton seed hulls in Texas. Wo
had a jolly ride out to our friends'
home in the brisk evening air and
were ready for a gn ni square ineal
Of Missouri products. We .lid jus
tice to what was set before us, and i
then were ready for thc music that
caine later.
Our fi M'in!.-. Wm. G fable, his wife
mid children, all have done theil

EKED MAXWELL WOUNDED.

Five Times hy Floyd Holt.
(Anderson Intelligencer, Nov. 1.)
A shooting scrape occurred seven
miles from Anderson lato Monday
night when Fred B. Maxwell, of An
derson, was shot live times hy Floyd
Holt at Co latter's home. Details of
the affair are meagre and efforts
were made to have the matter kop;
quiet. .
From what cati he learned here it
appears that Maxwell, who was under
the influence of whiskey, went to tho
home of the Dolts, who live seven
miles from Anderson, near Sandy
Springs, and started to batter down
the door. No reason is known for
this act. When Floyd Dolt heard
the noise at his door he called out,
asking who was there and what was
wanted. There came no reilly, it is
understood, to his demand to know
who wa.s at the door.
Then Mr. Holt stepped Into another
room and secured a pistol. He fired
in tin? direction from which the
sounds rame, it is stated. The pistol
was emptied of its contents.
I'pon further investigation Mr.
Holl found thal h<' had shot Mr. Max- ;
well five times, four of the shots tak
ing effect in the fleshy pan of the
leg and i lu* fl fr 1? in the ?rola.
I'pon realizing that I ? * ? had shot
some one. Mr. Molt phoned to Dr.
Hutchinson, who attended thc
wounded man.
Dr. Hutchinson Inter brough) Mr.
Maxwell to Anderson, placing him
in tin- Anderson Hospital, where he
now ls. lt is stated at I he hospital
that Mr. Maxwell, while painfully
wounded, is not dangerously injured,
and his recovery ,s assured. An op
eration was performed, the result of
which was successful.

Dowey Cantrell's Sight Partially Itc
storcd by An Operation.
Rev. J. T. Mann, writing in tho
Anderson Intelligencer of November
1st, says:
Tho sixty-fifth session of tho
South Carolina Institution for tho
Deaf, Dumb and Blind opened Octo
ber 2d with the largest opening day
enrollment In its history, and with
more students to follow. The last
list of new pupils on opening day
numbered 22, twelve deaf and ten
blind. In addition Uve new pupils
are reported In the colored school,
located a short distance from that
for whites, both being under the di
rection of Dr. N. P. Walker, super
intendent.
Dewey Cantrell, tho noted deaf
blind boy of tho State, has boen par
tially restored to sight as a result
of an operation performed by Dr.
Phlnizy Calhoun, or Atlanta. Of this
operation, tho Palmetto Deaf, tho
school's weekly paper, says in part:
.-v "This operation has proved suc
cessful to tho extent that Dewey is
able io read manual spelling slowly
at close range under good light con
ditions. We have written Dr. Cal
houn to know whether or not the use
of his partial sight in the school
room would prove beneficial or inju
rious."
There are two deaf-blind children
at Cedar Springs this session. The
Palmetto Leaf has this to say of the
one just received:
"Last Priday we received our sec
ond deaf-blind pupil. Ruby Miller,
of Union, S. C. She ls seven years
old. She lost her hearing and sight
something more than two years ago
from an attack of spinal meningitis.
One month she was a robust, normal
i little girl, the next she was without
her two most important senses. Sho
j has retained her speech to some ex
I tent, hut mutters a great deal that
! ls unintelligible. Sho ls a very at
! tractive little girl and has already
become the pet of our household."
i Only two changes were made in tho
! faculty this session, and two new
: teachers were added. Dr. N. P.
Walker is superintendent, and his
son, Prof. Laurens Walker, ls prin
cipal. They are assisted hy 22 com
petent instructors. A list of thc
States represented In Cedar Spring's
! faculty, tho number of teachers from
each State, follows:
South Carolina. 12; North Caroli
na, 1; Virginia, 2; West Virginia, 1;
New York, 1; Kentucky, 3; Texas,
i 1; California, 1; two teachers with
place of residence not given in pub
' iished list; total 24, including su
perintendent and principal.
Anderson county has two repre
sentatives, viz.: Prof. W. W. Donald,
of Monea Path, musical director, and
Prof. Jas. M. Prlerson, of Anderson,
in charge of printing, and also of
school room work.
The campus was greatly Improved
during tho summer. The Palmetto
Leaf's account of these improvements
follows, in part:
"During thc summer practically
every drive and o ve ry walk has been
changed; and. tho work ls not com
pleted yet. Macadam roads and
paved gravel walks are being placed
all over our extensive grounds. When
completed we believe we will have
the most beautiful public grounds in
our State."
, If any render of tho Intelligencer
knows of a deaf or blind child in the
State who ought lo be in school. I
'advise that you communicate with
[ Dr. N. P. Walker. Cedar Springs, S.

T.," had brought home to he a dis
charged pistol cartridge, Mrs. Inez
Leo, at her home on Lakewood ave

the explosive while her live children
gathered around her.
She probed the interior of tho
shell with a hatpin, (lazing on with
innocent curiosity, the littlo ones
crowded around the porch swing In
which she was sitting, when suddenly
thc harmless-looking shell exploded
with a roar that shook the house.
Mrs. Lice's right hand was blown
almost entirely off; the thumb of
her left hand was parttally severed,
and she was injured about tho face
and chest. She was rendered uncon
scious, and will be confined to her
bed for several days.
None of tho flvo children escaped.
Chester was hurt about the face and
hands, and "Y. T.," who had brought
the cartridge to his mother, was
burned about the face and body. Ju
lia, the little girl, who held in her
lap the baby, Davis, was humed
about the face and hands, while her
charge was humed upon the face and
head. The least hurt was Watson,
who escaped with minor burns.
Three of the injured children were
confined to bed, but the other two
were able to walk about the house.
Gangrene poisoning is feared, and
physicians are taking every precau
tion to prevent complications.

A part of tho porch awing in which
Mrs. Lee was sitting was splintered,

begged the mother to examine it.
Mrs. Lee began to explain how a pis
tol cartridge exploded, and as the
youngsters peered over her should
ers she took a hatpin and probed Into
thc cap to show how the spark which
exploded tho powder was produced
by concussion. This was what caus
ed the explosion.
