3PROPOSED PR?M NORTH TO FE18
G?S?N VIA OK ^NGE JtUR9. .
Would Cor licet With the feabaard
' Bailway and a Line of Steamer*
on the San tee.
There, ig a strong probability that
a trolky line will be bnil.t from North,
a thriving town on tbe Seaboard Air
Iiiae Bail-ray, to Fergu-:on, which is
In Berkeley County just acroEa the
line of O angebur.j County on the
: Sftntee K vbr. The road will ran
through ?nls city, and will have its
headquarters and power plant in thlR
City also. The bulldlrg of rccb a *oad
has been tbonght ot ia Orangt b arg
and along the proposed line that it
will traverse for years, but not until
last week was anything of a definite
character done. For some rime Mr.
' Sol Kohn, Secretary of the Business
Men's League of this city, has been in
correspondence witn some gentlemen
In New York with a view of getting
them interested in .the building of a
railway as spoken of above, and it
seems now that bis efforts will bear
A short time ago Mr. W. C. Wolfe,
a member of the Orangeburg Bar,
! secured a commission for a charter for
a railroad to over the route just
described. Several well known citi
zens of the 'county were associated
with Mr. Wolfe in the petition, and
it was stated that there was ample
capital behind this enterprise to make
It a success. The names of the par
ties outside the State associated with
Mr. Wolfe has not transpired, nor has
any definite time been named when
work will begin on the proposed line.
What t fleet the new move will have
on Mr. Wolfe's -prcjeot is not known,
bnt for the good of all concerned we
hope there will be no trouble in har
monizing all interests in a strong pull
lor the building of a road by whoever
will build it first.
On Friday afternoon a meeting of
the Business Men's League was held
for the purpose of m&eting and con
ferring with Messrs. J. J. Tlmmes
and J.. 0. La Vin, of New York City,
in reference to the building of the
proposed road. These gentlemen
I were in the city on tbe suggestion of
the Business Men's Loague for the
purpose of looking over the ground.
They had been in the city several
days before the meeting on Friday,
and had been given all Information by
Messrs. B. H. Jennings, W. L. Glazsi,
T. 0. Doyle, W. G. Smith and Sol
Kohn. So at tbe meeting they were
prepared to talk business and t ley
did. These gentlemen have notning
to do with Mr. Wolfe's projeot, so it
seems that there are too distinot sets
of capitalists who wish to build the
load from North to Ferguson.
The meeting of tbe League Friday
was fairly well attended by ? business
men, who seemed deeply interested in
the matter of tbe trolley line. After
calling the meeting to order President
Jennings requested Major W. L
Glaze to state ??he objects of tne
meeting, which he did In a few words.
He then suggested that Messrs
Tlmmes and La Vin be invited to ad
dress tbe meeting. Both gentlemen
made short talks in reference to the
enterprise they had in view. Among
other things they said the proposi
tion to build a trolley system hers
was one of many othors which they
had on hand, They were both most
favorably impressed with the oondi
tionsin this city and tbe proposed
route and saw no reason why the road
would not be a euooessful enterprise
Mr. Tlmmes said the North had an
abundant supply of capital and that
the south' was the logical place for in
vestment and that he hoped to have
before very long completed plans
whereby this city would enjoy a
modem system of street railway. The
capitalise whom they represented did
not re quire any iarge amount of money
to be placed in tbe ? nterprlse by local
parties, only a sufficient amount to
Insure tbe local support of the com
After the plans had been thorough
ly explained by Major W. L. Glaze it
was decided by the League that they
would undertake to secure a franchise
for the proposed railway in the city of
Orangeburg and also secure the right
if way over the proposed route as
Don as a survey was made and the
efinite route deoided on. This
urvey is to be mace by the engineers
I the proposed corporation and will
e the first real move towards the
building of toe line. As soon as this
survey is completed and a map of the
route made the Business Men's
League will then get the franchise
and secure the rlgnia of way over tbe
proposed route, which should not he a
very difficult matter, as tue read
would be a great bent fie to all througn
whose land it mlgnc pass. As a
guarantee of good faith on both sides
it was agreed that each side make a
deposit of 8500 In the People's Bank
to faithfully carry out the sb ?ve
agreement or forfeit said amount
These amounts have been deposited
and the preliminary work on the pro
posed line will soon begin.
It will be seen that all that is ask
ed of the people or Orangeburg,
through the Business Men's League,
Is that they s cure a franchise and
rights of way for the proposed rail
road, but with uuderstan iijg that all
expenses so incurred shall oe paid by
tne new railroad company, so it ap
pears tnat Oraagebcrg is to get tue
railroad jail for a little work and
hearty o operation. Of course an
opportuuity will be givon tne people
of tuis section of taking some of the
stook in the new corporation. Messrs
Timmes and La Viu are not buying a
oat in the bag. They were taken
over the proposed route of the road
by President B. H. Jennings, Saore
tary Sol Konn and Bobt. Lide, E q ,
wd know exdColy how the land lay.
Iney have seen and talked to pro
ninent men at Nortn and along the
route, and expressed themselves as
oelng pleased with their reception
and the business prospects of the new
Tne proposed road will run as near
an airline from North to Ferguson
via Orangeburg as it can be built.
Oa iti way from this o.ty to Furgu
son it will pass at or near Providence
Church in Che Providence section and
on its way to this city from North
will peas through the Limestone sec
tion. Both of these sections axe very
much in need cf railroad facilities and
*iil be materially beneflcted by the
road. W4 understand that the road
?vili be < x'ended from North on up to
Srplng field, vhioh will be good news
to the people of that progressive little
town *nd surrounding country. It
will bring the people of all i h * sec
tions traversed by It in close, direot
communication with this oity, which
?'ill be s (rreat convenieroe aud mu
tual benefit to them and the city. By
tills route we new r >ad will traverse
some of the finest farmltg sections in
t^e South and open up & ?reat deal of
fine timber lands. There is no
reason why it should not be a paying
investment to all who put money In
The distance from North to Or
h.ng?ba?g is 18 miles and the distance
f ua Oranreburg to the Ssn'ee river
is about 35 mileij at least 30 of which
will be within O'argeburg county, so
what it 13 clearly a county railroad
The bene?ts to be derived b7 this
city fron the proposed road is great.
In addition to giving the oity a
trolley system, and opening up a fine
farming section, it will give Orange
burg two new connecting lines that
are sure to do much for the city. The
first will be at North, where the rail
road will connect with the Seaboard
Air Line, and the second with the
steamer line on the Santee and via
the Clyde and Baltimore lines of
steamers from Georgetown to the
North. Lot us all do what we oau to
help along the enterprise and speed

How j-iueh is She Worth?
If a man has the misfortune to lose
his wife, acd there is no member of
the family to take her place, he be
gins to realize that a housokeeper is a
costly luxury. Besides, the first ex
pense of her weekly earnings, there
will be a vast difference in the cost of
running the house; for without a per
tonal interest, many of the little
economies of housekeeping will not be
practised. A word to the wise is suf
ficient. How much is your wife worth
to you, leaving sentiment entirely out
of the question? Is she worth a wash
ing machine, a bread mixer, a clothes
wringer, a nice carriage and a safe
borsf, or a few kind loving words ?

COMMEPfCEMENT EXERCISES OP
SHE I3RANC?VJLLE SCHOOL
The Past Tear Has Been a Host Suc
cessful One for Both Teach
ers and Pupils.
The commencement exercises of
the Brancaville graded school were
held week L-efore last. We Intended
to publish an account of It last week
but somehow we mislaid the copy we
had and only recovered lb this week.
These exercises are always looked for
ward to with muoh pleasure by the
town and surrounding country, but
the attendants this year exoeeded
anything in the past. The exercises
for eaoh evening were of a very high
orler, showing tbat much work and
effort bad b;en expended by teachers
The regular commencement sermon
was delivered on Sunday mornlDg
May 20, by the Bev. Peter Stokes, of
Bamnerg, and was greatly enj iyed by
tne large congregation for its approp
rlatenesB, deep thought and beautiful
language. Tr.e theme wes the "Dial

Divine Standpoint." Tee entire
school, consisting of 175 pupils, m:,rc i
ed with their teachers iroia the school

ed Koats were kept for the school
The main feature of the exarchs
for Monday evening was a debate b7
the graduating class. The query was.
"Besolved, that foreign Immigration
should be further restricted." Many
good judges have been heard bo say
-.hat this debate was tbe equal of any
thing of Cbe kind ever heard in the
ordinary college by practiced debators
From tbe standpoint of argument, de
Itvery and oratory this debate com
pared favorably with any ever heard
certainly in a preparatory school, and
it dearly showed the work thac had
been done both by s&udentsand teach
The exercises of Tuesday evening
were by the slxih and seventh grades
and were also of a very high ordar
Tne operatta entitled, "The Eachan
ted Wiod,,J deserves special mention
for its high musloal rendition.
Wednesday evening was mainly de
voted to the exerolses of the lower
grades, and showed a hi?h order of
training on the part of the teachers,
and an ability to be trained on the
part of tbe pupil. BsMdc-s these exnr
clsei the play, ' Oar Awful Aunr.,"
was presented by the higher grade?
and received hearty applaupo.
On Th?rs lay evening the anmr.l
literary address was delivered by Dt
S. B. Boll*, of Augusta, Ga., and It
was undouotedly the greatest orator
ical effort ever heard in Branohville.
Dr. Belk held his audience swayed
from laughter to tears for nearly an
hour and a half. So delighted were
the people with the address that Dr
Belk was persuaded, to remain over
and deliver bis lecture, "Oa the Crest
of the Continent," on Friday even
At the cl03e of the exercises Dr
Belk, on behalf of tne eighth and
nlntn grades, who have been direct y
under the cnarge of Prof. E cbiuon,
presented the professor with a bpauti
f ul cathedral gong clock. Prof. E*ch
ison could hardly find .vcrds to express
his high appreoiasion of this gift.

will travel for the State Company
during the summer, and later on will
looate somewhere in this State and
practice law. Mr. Etohison has been
highly successful in the management
of the school here, and it is with very
much regret that the trustees and
patrons give him up a? a teacher.
Friday afternoon Prof, and Mrs.
Etchi&on gave a reception at their
home, and invited aa their guests the
classes of Mr. Efcobisou. This was a
delightful iffair and was very much
enjoyed by the guests and Prof, and
The lecture Friday evening by D r,
Belk , "Oa the Crest of the Conti

much to rank Dr. Belk as an orator
with the Dlxons and Taylors.

The family rrsag?z Ines are calling
attention to the I -vet that it is becom
ing a marked feature of cur young
men to consider it the ''right thing"
to be, as one writer expresses it,
"sporty, even to U ujaness," In de
meanor in the home as well as socle
t/. Too many young men, it is said
cavrv "the manners cf the foot ball
field" into tbe home, where they pride
themselves on being "heavy on their
feet, noisy in their movements, lum
bering in their actions and bordering
on boorishness" in their manners.
Many of them are decidedly slangly
in tbelr choice of language, rough in
their speech, and none too careful of
the feelings of others. This is to be
deplored, and a remedy sought for it.
It is well to be athletic; to be sound
in body and strong in limb; but res
pect for the amenities of life uhould
shows, and politeness, urbanity, gen
tleness in speech and action, should
by no means be despied. Our boys
saculd, above all things seek to be
gentlemen, in the best sense of the
word , and to cultivate a habit of
courtesy toward their associates, aad
consideration, and respect toward
womer, either young or old. It
will nfcver make a boy think less
of himself to treat a girl, wheth
bls sister, or the sister of some
other boy, according to tbe gentler
Instincts of hih better nature, while,
to sbOff a deference and a tender
respect toward a woman who Is
"somebody's mother," whether his or
another's is one of the lovilest things
a boy can do.

Terrible predictions concerning
what will happen to this poor old
earth during the next twenty-five
vears were made at a prophetic and
Second Advent conference last week
In London and while they differed
somewhat in details, they all agreed
that the end of the world is at
hand, they were not quite sure
whether the final catastnphe will
come on May 2. or April 9, 1931, but
they are quite sure that one of these
d tes will prove to be the r;gat one.
Tbere can be no douot that the world
has nearly outlived its usefulness, tne

are children the noblest virtues and
aspirations are aroused. Father and
mother are united In tbe desire to do
their utmost for the helpless little

would make one woman divinely
happy would make another miser
able, because she is not his mate, and
the1 good Lord never meant her to
dwell with him. There must be that
congeniality, that sympathy, that in
expressible something that men call
love, that accepts Its mate altogether,
Ignoring all faulte, bearing all things,
believing all things, hoping all
things, eDdurlng all things, never
falling in tendemees and loyalty even
though the whole world should turn

is worth waiting for and worth living
for. To most women there is not

dare to marry a dissipated man. True

love that women are deceived by it
Into the belief that It is a real devo

proper foundation for tbe married

no dependence upon him, no pleasure
In him, no trup love for Mm.
