! TER ILLUSTRTAED.

An Ever Memorable Event That Will
Never Be Forgotten by Those Who
Some very Interesting pictures of
the attack on Fort Sumter were
found In a copy of Frank Leslie's
Illustrated Newspaper for April 27,
1861, which was carried to The News
- and Courier office on last Wednesday
. by a gentleman who said that, he had
owned the copy since shortly after
- the war. At that time Leslie's was
probably the loading illustrated news
paper in the country. The News and
CJourier comments on the Illustrations
During the engagement with Fort
Sumten Leslie's had two staff artists
in Charleston, one being' stationed
on Morris Island with the Confeder
ate battery and the other remaining
In the city. In addition to this
Frank Leslie issued an invitation to
the officers and men on both sides
of the contest to contribute sketches
of engagements and important scenes
and the result was that Leslie's had
i:he most accurate illustrations of
The principal picture in Leslie's
of April 27, 1861, is of the bombard
enent of Fort Sumter. It covers' four
pages of the publication land is. drawn
:rby the staff r.rtist standing on Morris
ilvsland. It shews fn a very striking
Way the terrific mass of projectiles
, being-hurled into the fort from the
, l!ou*.\batterieB and when the sketch
-.was made the officers' quarters at
ithe fort had just been broken into
A second picture, not quite so
"J.arge as the first, shows a scene on
1:he floating battery in Charleston
Harbor. This sketch was made by
an officer of the battery. Still an
other drawing shows the excitement
on South Battery during the bom
bardment of Fort Sumter. In the
picture of the Battery is seen the
jrreat mass of people that crowde??
to that place to watch the course of
the struggle. There are men, ->
men and children in the scene and
various emotions are expressed on
In addition to these three illustra
tions, there is a diagram showing the
plan of the selge operations in
Charleston Harbor. This shows ex
actly how the guns of the various
batteries were trained on Fort Sum
iter and must have been drawn by
someone very familiar with military
operations. The pictures are of in
terest to all Charlestonlans and
ahoiuld ,be particularly interesting to
those who were lying there at the
time of the engagement.

Speak truly and each word of thine
Shall be a fruitful seed;
Live truly, and thy life shall be
A great and noble creed.

Bowman, July 14?Special: Heavy
showers; have fallen here for the past
few days to the great benefit of the
crops around this section. Corn will

deteriorate somewhat during the
dry spell, and will be largely improv
ed by the recent showes. ?
CHAMBER OP COMM2RCEV
Monthly Meeting Held Thursday Af
ternoon at City Hall.
The regular monthly' meeting ef
the Orangeburg Chamber of Com
merce, postponed from Wednesday
aftenoon on account of the rain, was
held Thursday afternoon at six
o'clock at the City Hall. On account
of the absence of President Cart
Vice-President W-.L. Moseley occu
pied the presiding chair. TheNmeet
ing was officially opened, minutes of
the last meeting read and approved.
There were thTee things consider
ed chiefly at this meeting. Tre first
was that the Chamber of Commerce
decided to make an effort to get the
schedule of the Pregnals train chang
ed. It is believed a .better schedule
than the present one can be obtained
and one that will please everyone on
the road. It was also decided, and
the secretary was given the power to
go ahead as far as he can to get the i
White Way lengthened from Doyle
Street to the Southern depot. No
definite plan has yet been suggested
to obtain this, but Secretary Mar
chant is considering the matter.
It was also decided to make a
strong effort to create a cotton con
centration point in Orangebungi As
Secretary Marchant said there is not
as much cotton marketed in Orange
burg now as there was ten years ago.
Of course this is partially explained
by the numerous banks at the vari
ous towns in the county, enabling
the farmer to market his cotton
wherever convenient for him. How
ever it is believed with a little work,
Oangeburg could gain largely in this
part of trade. The matter was refer
ed to the cotton committee.
An "exhibit at the State Fair wab
also discussed hut nothing definite
decided. No doubt this will come up
There was considerable discussion
concerning the non-enforcement oi
the city's sanitary laws. This dis
cussion was in fact criticism. The
Secretary was instructed to bring
the matter before the City Council,
the health of a community Is Its most
valuable asset and every possible
thing should be done to insure its
safety and freedom from disease.
The sanitary situation should be giv
en serious and im med kite attention.
The proposed booster trip is still
being considered and active prep
arations will begin Monday at twelve
o'clock when all automobile owners
are requested to meet at the Court
House to consider the trip. It is de
sired to find out how many automo
biles can be secured for the trip.
Trere being nothing further to
consider the meeting adjourned.

POLITICAL POT BOILING.
iSt Matthews Getting Ready to Elect
The St. Matthews correspondent of
The State has this to say about the
muincipal election which is soon to
come of in that town:
An election will be held on August
3 to choose a mayor and six alder
men for the next two years, and the
matter of who shall hold these of
fices is being discussed by the elec
tors. Mayor J. Scottowe Wiannamak
er, who has held the office for ten
years, declares In a written state
ment that he can not stand for re
election. Despite his declination to
run, his friends have announced him
and Insist upon his making the race.
He says however that his decision Is
Walter Spigner, who has been a
satisfactory member of the council

bis friends to take the place and he
has agreed to allow his name to be
The name of J. A. Banks has also
been presented, but Mr. Banks has
not said whether he will make the
race. In the event of the election of
either of these gentlemen, the town
is sur to have a igood mayor.
The following have been suggested
as aldermen: J. T. Gressette, Shep
Pearlstine, J. N. Glover, W. W. Mc
Millan, J. H. Henagan and B. F.
Bruce, the first three being members
of the council at present. W. L. Fel

BUYS LAND FOR FAIR.
But Will Hold No Fair Until the Fall
of Next Year.
St. Matthews is wisely going slow
but sure in organizing for the Cal
houn County Fair. The State corre
spondent at St. Matthews says the di
rectors of the county fair associa
tion met Thursday morning and de
termined upon a site for the fair
After going over the various prep
ositions it was unamimously decided
to accept the offer by the St. Mat
thews Realty company of 23 acres
or '$4,000. These gentlemen agree
to take $1,000 dollars of the pur
chase price in stock and the balance
in cash on such terms as are agree
able to the association. The loca
tion of the site is an ideal one.
On account of the grounds being
under cultivation this year, thereby
making it impossible to get posses
sion in time to prepare for the fair,
it was decided not to hold a fair thle
fall, but to have something like a fall
isala day instead, and have a real
fair next year.
This decision, we think, is wise.
Fairs in this section will be. judged
,by the first one held, and if a fine
one aan't ,be held for any cause this
year, it is better to postpone it until
next year, which will give time to
prepare for and work up a good one
The St. Matthews people are almost
a unit for anything that will help
their town. Can we say as much for
the people of Orangeburg standing
up for their town.

kindly publicity. Thanking yon
again, I am, cordially yours,

Speaker Clark stands well with
our people, and, as we said before,

presidential nomination, will be the
man who will lead the' Democratic
hosts to victory next year. He is

most prosperous section of Calhoun
and Rirhland Bounties. The hltlzens
of this community regret that this
route was not selected as the Ashe
ville-Charleston route by the com
This route passes through a sec
tion that is in close touch with sev
eral nail roads, which makes it very
convenient in case of trouble to take
a train. The most enthusiastic co

has the misfortune to have trouble
with his car and finds he is many
miles from a railroad station, long

own autos, where he is passed to and
fro by the travelling aubo almost
hourly, where he can walk to a near
farm house and get long distance
connection, get his farmer friend to
assist him or lend him an auto part,
he feels more like motoring.
