Things are looking good for the
Dixie Library now. Application has
been m.3.de for their charter and the
first payment has been made on the
building. Another payment will be

Let Us Have Co-operation.
Mr. Edltor: I will give a few dots
on co-operation as we have had some
little experience in this line . We had
the chain gang two weeks. The peo
ple joined in and hauled on the
Woodlord road last Saturday. Ev
erything seemed like a frolic. Even
the gang sang and worked more live
ly. Mr. S. B. Knotts treated them
to a lish fry and also pork and po
tatoes. I called the attention of
all present to co-operation. We could
easily see what could be dorn? if
farmers would concentrate their
hearts and minds together. Mr. H
Berry and I with quite a number of
others went to the camp on Sunday
afternoon and held a service with
reading the scriptures and prayer.
The convicts showed their apprecia
tion and their singing was excellent
I wish very much that many of j>?'-.t
: readers could have seen this wont of
co-operation; Men furnished wagons
and teams for several days to work
in the interest of good roads. Now
let us extend this idea of co-opera
tion to all our business. We don't
lenow what we can do till we i?y.
If we don't try we certainly will do
nothing. Let us all work heartily
on a co-operative basis for our God,
for our country, for our Union and
for ourselves. J. A. Long,
Trinity Union No. 290.

Overhauled Escaped Prisoner.
IB111 Esau, who made his escape
from the jail at St. Matthews last
fall s.nd ; was cjaptured, escaped
again on Saturday night when Dep
uty Sheriff Hill entered the jail to
lodge other prisoners. Esau, who
had been making good time with a
piece of iron secured in some mys
terious way, was at the doorway
awaiting his chance. Just as Mr.
Hill entered Esau took his departure.
Mr. Hill immediately lodged his pris
oners and went after the fugitive in
a wagon, which he appropriated for
the chase. Esau, whose wind had
been curtailed by confinement, could
not distance the mules and was over
taken. He was again persuaded to
accompany the officer back to his in
Corner Stone Laying.

Gun Accidentally Goes Off.?Married
Men to Play 'Ball Game.
Cope, April lit*.?Special: This
morning as Mr. R. C Carter's pet dog
was acting rather strangely, it was
decided by several parties, that it
was going mad, an.l same was soon

accidentally discharged, boring a hole
in the store floor, j .ist inside of the

Manager O'Dowd, of the Academy
of Music, announces with muc.b. re

but what will be of great interest
to the people of this community is
the further announcement that Wil

Commoner," has been secured for
one of his interesting lectures some

In order to get this- renowned orator

Card From Maj. Dibble.
Mr. Editor: I ask the privilege of
the columns of your paper to most
heartily express my gratitude to the
many kind friends who stood by me
in my campaign for Probate Judge
of Orangeburg County, and who by
their support brought to me success.
That I did not have the pleasure of
moving more freely among the peo
ple, as it was expected that I should
do is a source of genuine regret to
me; but as I held a public office in
Orangeburg city, which called fcr al
most constant demands, I felt that I
should not seek the advantages of
my own personal aims at the expense
of the public interests under my
care. I did, however, as opportunity
offered, make brief visits to several
sections of the county and was al
ways kindly received l>v the people,
and was specially gratified to find
that those who knew me best when
I served as Master some years ago
were almost universally glad to give
my candidacy their support.
I shall enter upon the work to
which 1 have been called by the vote
of the people with a kindly feeling
for everyone, whether or not they
supported me in the campaign just
closed, and with a sincere desire to
mete out justice in all cases com;ng
before me, and to discharge all the
duties imposed upon me by law in
such a way as will command the con
fidence and esteem or all classes of
I thank you, Mr. Editor, for en
abling me to place these expressions
before the people.

Fell in Open Well.
Mr. A. R. Byrd, a prosperous
farmer w!:o lives near Branchville,
came very near losing a fine horse
Tuesday morning, when the animal
fell into a twelve-foot well in the
field, where he was ploughing. The
horse stepped close to the open well
when a large part of the ground
around it caved in and the animal
was precipitated to the bottom. As
it fell it rested on its haunches with
its head up so that the water con
tained therein did not get into the
nostrils. Mr. Byrd hurriedly came
to town, got. some hands and rope,
went back, dug out a trench and
with the rope succeeded in taking
the horse from the well. It came
out not much the worse from the ex
perience as no bon..-s were broken
and only a few scratches had been
Ball Game at Branchville.
Orangeburg College and Branch
ville base ball teams crossed bats at
Branchville Tuesday afternoon, and

boys. This is the ninth game the
boys have played this season, and as
yet, they have not lost a single game.
The features of the game wore the

Mr. and Mrs. W. C. Locke Coming.
Music lovers in Orangeburg will
be fortunate in hearing Mr. W. G.
Locke of Charleston, on the occasion
of the coming concert of the Men
delssohn Choral Club. Mr. Locke is
well known as a singer of great ar
tistic merit. His voice is one of un
usually fine and beautii'ul quality and
this combined with a highly sensitive
musical temperament, renders his
work most thoroughly enjoyable.
Mr. Locke has sung in a num&er of
Oratorios and Cantatas, in which tne
beauty of his voice has been generally
admired. He is particularly happy
in the selection of his songs. Mr.
Locke will be accompanied by his
wife. The New York Symphony Or
chestra says, "Too much cannot be
said of the magnificent accompani
ments of Mrs. W. G. Locke. The
strong, vigorous touch, her great fa
cility, her splendid reading ana best
of all, her intelligent and sympathetic
conception has been of wonderful
service in the study of this unusually
difficult composition." The success of
the concert seems to be an assured

tended throughout the Southeastern
