COLD WEATHER HERE.
It wan a Great Surprise Throughout
the Whole South.
Th<a cold snap of Wednesday morn
ing was a great surprise after the
warm spell of the last several days.
No one seems to have expected it.
Th:!i weather bureau Wednesday
morning and unreasonably cold
weather prevails throughout a large
part of the South* with reports of
frost in Oklahoma, northern Arkan
sas a cd western Tennessee.
The weather bureau, in a special
bulletin, attributes the low temper
atures to an area of high pressure
extending from the Rocky Mountains
to the Allegbenies and central over
the Mississippi valley.
In the far South those sections

In the North also unusually cold
weather was noted Wednesday.

OUR COMIC SE<mON.
The Times and Democrat Takes An
The Times and Democrat sends out
this week for the first time its com
ic section, which we believe will
prove interesting and entertaining
to old and young, as it will cause
many a hearty laugh. Funny pic
tures have a fascination for most
people, and the readers of The Times
and Democrat are no exception to the
These comic sectiona will be sent
out with the first irpue of The Times
and Democrat in each month to all
subscribers who have paid in ad
vance. So if you want to receive it
regularly look up the date on the ad
dress slip of your paper, and if you
are in arrears, pay up and get in ad
vance and it will be sent to you the
first of each month.
This rule will be strictly adhered
to,? and we hope all will pay up,
so as they can get the comic section
every time it is sent out.
j One of the prime objects we have
in using these comic sections is to
j let a subscriber know when his time
is out, as te does not seem to pay
any attention to the addressslip on
his paper. But when the comic sec
tion quits coming to him, a subscrib
er will know that hhi time is out,
and that he ought to renew, which
he will do if he wants the comic
section to come on.
Better Schedule Wanted.
An effort is being made throug
the local chamber of commerce to
have the Atlantic Coast Line rail
road improve its schedule between
Orangeburg and the towns on the
Pregnalls branch. The improvement
asked is to have thie train arrive at
Orangeburg in the morning and go
on through to Cope. It is desired
that two daily trips be made by this
train along the whole line from Cope
to Pregnalls. The present service is
unsatisfactory, as patrons of the
merchants of this city who live on
the Pregnalls branch have only two
hours between trains here to do their
shopping, while the people of Cope
and Cordova can not come to Orange
burg and return in the same day.
Woodford School Closing.
The closing exercises of te Wood
ford Academy will embrace Monday,
J1 nth. instant, to Wednesday, 17th in
stant, both days inclusive. The ex
ercises will commence each evening
at half-past eight o'clock. On Fri
day, May 12th, the school will play
Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet"
for the benefit of its new piano AH
the friends of the school will be wel
comed to all the above exercises.

Lived Long Lives.
The Orangeburg correspondent of
The News and Courh.r says: "What
is regarded as a remarkable record of
I longevity for the inhabitants of this
city and county is shown in the fact
I that the three last burials from St.
Paul's Methodist Church were of
three well-be-loved iadies of the city
and vicinity, who died at the ages
j of S7, 91 and 93 years.
Will be Tried Monday.
The case against Robert Chestnut,
who shot and killed W. R. Sabin last
week, has been set for trial next
Monday. Counsel will endeavor to
continue the case to the next term,
but as the only witness to the killing
is an old man, Solicitor Hildebrand
will press for a trial at this term,
and many think :he case will be
tried next week.

QUEER GASE GOMES TO LIGHT.
Something Unique in the Way of
Eugene Hogan, Jr., a young man
who formerly lived in Sumter, but
who for the laBt few years has roam
ed beyond the State's border, proba
bly in Texas, owes his parole, grant
ed recently by Governor Blease,
largely to a letter, the nature of
which appeared to the governor to be
an effort to blackmail. Hogan wps
convicted in the spring of 1906, of
assault and battery with intent to
kill, and was sentenced to five years'
imprisonment. He left Sumter and
has remained away. He assaulted
D. G. Zeigler, an architect, who for
merly had offices here and who has
also engaged in that business in At
lanta and other places.
The letter was written by Zeig
ler to Eugene Hogan, Sr., father of
the young man paroled, and bore the
date of April 6, 1908. "If you ffish
to adjust the matter," opened the
negotiations in the letter as to the
projected pardon of young Hogan;
and then the letter went on to say
that $400 should be paid in cash;
$400 in one year from date of par
don and $400 in two years from date
of pardon, that notes might be ar
ranged and the notes were to be turn
ed over to Zeigler as soon as the gov
ernor announced the pardon, and in
ctase the pardon was refused the
notes were to be returned. The prop
osition was for Zeigler to intercede
for clemency on these terms.
"If not arranged in thirty days
from date," wrote Zeigler, "I will
take the matter up with the govern
or and have your boy brought in
and placed in prison to stand sent
ence." "This is not a bluff,' the
letter concluded. " I am fully aware
of the boy's whereabouts. I would
advise you to get this matter settled,
because if I once take the matter up
with the governor then it will be im
possible to get a pardon for him."
Gov. Wense did the right thing when
he paroled young Hogan, and broke
up Zeigler's little game of raising
money by selling his influence to
have him pardoned.

The Wofford College Men of this

Calhoun Was Not There.
The St Matthews correspondent of
The State says: "A map agent sell
ing what purports to be a 1911 map
of South Carolina, and also a general
map of the United States, came into
town today and injured the feelings
of a number of citizens by delivering
maps without Calhoun county. This
ommission did not appeal to the Cal
hounites, and immediately after it
was discovered the agent was sought
to rectify the mistake. He vainly
and loudly endeavored to argue that
although the county was omitted it
was the latest map, but the purchas
ers argued back with force that he
was inexcusably in error. Some very
heated arguments were had,( but the
agent finally realized that not being
from Missouri, he could not show
thum what was not there and his
trade was greatly curtailed."
