KIO GUN MAY H?HL FIVE-TON
Projectile - Wonderful Possibilities
Claimed for New Gun.
New York, July 9.-Scientists and
inventors to-day discussed the re
markable qualities of a new gun that
Dr. Miller Heese Hutchison, former
chief engineer for Thomas A. Edi
son, claims may be developed to hurl
u projectile of Ave tons from two
hundred to three hundred miles. Its
velocity, he declared, ranges from
ono to five miles a second. Tho noise
it made at a demonstration yester
day sounded much like the click of
a cash register. Though only a min
iature weapon, with an eight-inch
barrel was used, its projectile may
be stopped by a shoot of steel with
the precision of a trolley car.
The gun is the invention of John
Temple, an Englishman, who devel
oped tho Idea in this country.
The demonstration, held in tho
presence of scientists and newspa
per men, was, curiously enough, held
in Dr. Hutchinson's office on the fif
ty-first floor of tho Woolworth Build
ing. The testing grounds consisted
of a box of sand on the door of the
oliice, over which was placed a sheet
of steel three-quarters of an Inch in
thickness. Pointing the gun down
ward toward the fifty offices filled
with people beneath him, Dr. Hutch
inson discharged the weapon and tne
cash register click was beard. In
the sheet of sloel Hiere was lodged
a projectile throe Inches long and a
half inch in d?amete.'. Tho ends weie
sticking out on either side of thc?
Dr. Hutchinson explained that the
tail end of the projectile was thread
ed and served the purpose of a boll.
This feature, he declared, could he
used In bolting a plate over a hole
in the hull of a leaking ship at sea.
The demonstration gun used by
Dr. Hutchinson had a velocity of om;
mile a second. He declared the high
power rifles now In vogue obtain
their velocity through the use of
small projectiles, long barrels and
about three times as much powder
as is used in the new weapon. The
principle of burning the powder,
which does not permit waste, before
the projcotile even starts to move,
has been applied to the gun, Dr.
Hutchinson explained. The elimina
tion of a loud report, bo said, was
obtained by confinement of the ex
panding gas and to the chamber from
which the projectile emanated. The
weapon resembled the nozzle of a

LIPSCOMB'S SLA Y10 H CAPTURED.
Kami Hand Who Killed Him Caught
in Greenwood County.
Greenwood, July 5.-Two hours
after the fatal shooting of Dr. Law
ton C. Lipscomb, prominent farmer
and druggist of Ninety-Six, Pink
Griffin, a negro farm band, was cap
tured by a posse of citizens beaded
by L. M. Lipscomb, a cousin of the
dead man, brought to Greenwood,
and turned over to tho county offi
cers. The negro was spirited away
from the Greenwood county jail for
safe-keeping. Governor Cooper will
bo asked to call a special term of
court to try the negro. A full con
fession was made hy Gr i flin to his
captors. David Machen, another ne
gro implicated, was also carried away
for safe-keeping. Dr. Lipscomb was
shot six times, three of the bullets
taking effect In the region of the
heart. Following a reprimand given
Griffin for beating bis mule, Griffin
followed from the barn lot and began
firing when Dr. Lipscomb was a hort
distance from his bouse. Apparently
Dr. Lipscomb bad turned and made
an effort to wrench the pistol from
the negro's hand, powder burns and
bullet wounds in the right band in
dicating snell. He was dead when
his wife readied him. Tho news of
tho fatal shootng of Dr. Lipscomb
quickly spread and fully 2.ono citi
zens formed a posse and literally
combed tho woods and swamps for
miles around. The negro was cap
tured on tho Seaboard railway, near
Alexander's brick yard, about five
miles from the scene of tho deed.
Sheriff Cannon Please, of Newberry,
was telephoned for, and with blood
hounds responded at once. When tho
negro was captured tho hounds woro
not on Griffin's tracks. Members of
Dr. Lipscomb's family urgod that tho
law bo allowed to tako Its courso,
and tho posse dispersed soon after
tho negro was brought to Jail.
Dr. Lipscomb is survived by his
wife, who was Miss Salllo Cathcart,
of Columbia; one slstor, Mrs. G. T.

Florence Potato Growers Realized
i j and s om fly i>y Co-operation,
Clemson Colloge, July 8. - Two
tho una nd luir rois of Irish potatoes
sold at %?> per barrel while the gen
eral market on potatoes was $2 por
barrel was the result of Organization
and co-operation among Florence
county farmers during the season
just ended. This fine result was
brought about through the Instru
mentality of the 'Florence Chamber
of Commerce and County Agent J.
W. McLendon, and as a consequence
the farmers working through tho or
ganization made a profit of $6,000
above the market.
To start at the beginning of this
story, a contract was made, before
the timo for marketing, with a buyer
who was attracted to the Florence
market again this year because of tho
satisfactory way in which potatoes
were handled on that market In
1920. Thon tho leadors In the Flor
ence potnto organization put on a
campaign for proper digging, grad
ing, packing and shipping of tho
crop. Instructions wore given by lot
ter to all mouther growers and as
sistance was given where needed.
Potatoes wero required to bo ma
chine graded, and growers who did
not have enough potatoes to warrant
buying graders individually were
aided In securing graders Jointly.
Strict grading was required, for tho
market was falling, and on a falling
market grading is doubly important. |
Farmers who did not work through
the organization received $2 per bar
rel for their potatoes, thus paying a
big penalty for their failure to real
