It is not a violation of any known

that he has never seen as much good
cotton in one body as may be seen
by making a visit as we did yester
day to the extensive farm of Col.
J. B. Stroman, just beyoad the mills,
where we found four hundred acres
of cotton planted individually by the
genial Colonel, who, according to the
best judges of the community will
make five hundred bales of cotton on
this farm, aside from the share
crops and rented farms.
It is am inspiring sight to stand in
plain viev of this ir?:niense sea of I
waving green standing from three to j
four feet high in four feet rows,
close lapped from end to end, and
heavily loaded with matured fruit,
just .beginning to open. Beyond,
and nearer the river we found the
two hundred acre corn field of Col.
Stroman. This corn is very fine and
will all be needed, as the Colonel
has more than 250 hog3 to fatten.

From the great interest around,
and the funds that have bcm raised
to help build better and larger

of life. The trustees are becoming
more alive to the situation. They
are paying a higher price for teach

VERLY BADLY MIXED CASE.
The Peculiar Dilemma of an Orange
burg County Negro.
The Orangeburg correspondent of
The State says a negro of this com
munity in order to come into posses
sion of a valuable tract of land, must
plead guilty to either adultery or
bigamy, laying himself open to a
big fine or a term in the penitenti
ary. Such a case is now in litigation
in Orangeburg county and the out
come is being watobed with interest.
The negro was married in 1871.
Shortly after this marriage the con
tracting parties concluded that they
could not live together and agreed to
separate. The man was married
again as was also the woman. The
husband and wife of the parties died
and they again took unto themselves
a husband and wife. The parties
were married three times. There
were many ohKdren. The wife came
into possession of a valuable tract of
land and a short time ago died.
Her husband of 1871 now lays
claim to the land. Whether he was
married to the woman is the question
now raised. If the was married he is
guilty of bigamy, and If he was not
married he is guilty of adultery. If
the negro answers not guilty to tihe
charges of bigamy or adultery he
loses claim to the property and it
goes to the heirs of the woman.
Defeat? Her Old Enemy Blackville on
the Base Ball Field
Springfield has forestalled Colum
bia by playing off the championship
game of the season with Blackville,
her old time enemy on the diamond,
and the victory belongs to Mike Glea
ton and his boys who licked the vis
itors here yesterday, "just like we
used to do," and the score was 7-1 in
favor of the local boys. It was
strictly a pitchers battle, and the
Springfield pitcher put the ball over
where the Blackville boys failed to
find it, leaving even twenty of them
at the home plate with a distressed
look on their physiognomy. Batter
ies, Springfield, "Cash" Fallow and
Bill Felder, Blackville, Dewitt and
Blackville sent a large contingent
of her splendid men and women to
see her noble boys "lick" the "coun
trymen" at Springfield. They came
in splendid style, large touring cars,
elegantly attired; but alas for their
expectations, blasted in the begin
ning and like that concourse of peo
ple more than fifty years ago crossed
the long bridge at Washington to see
the 'blue coats" lick the sons of the
South on that sanguinary battlefield
known as "Bulls Run" their return
to their own habitation was with the
unmistakable signs written across
their 1 beforetimes smiling faces,
"we've been licked." Springfield is

Holly Hill, August 1 Oth?Special:
The Orangeburg "Boosters" enliven
ed our town for awhile today. The
cars came in about mid-dav and
made quite a good showing. There
were about fouiteen cars with four
or five men to each car. These gen
tlemen were served with watermelon
and cool drinks and seemed to enjoy
their stay with us nearly as much as
we enjoyed having them. Come
again boosters, and be sure to bring
that inspiring music with you.
This afternoon a ball game was
pulled off between Elloree an l Holly

one and was witnessed by a large

was 8 to 3 in favor of Holly Hill.

Cotton Picking Time.
Cotton is said to be opening very
freely and gathering the staple will
soon be in full blast all over the
county. It may not become general
for a couple of weeks yet, but in a
very short time new cotton will be

opinion is expressed by some that
the early maturing of cotton is not
indicative ot a very Iarso crop, hut
the general impression is that this
county will gather a large crop.

The Best of All Economy is the
Economy of Securing thefBest
It is not economy to take your child to a cheap and
inefficient teacher when an experienced and well trained
one may be secured for a slightly greater fee. If you must
have a cheap teacher, it would be better to reserve the cheap
teacher for some later period, as the most important period
of all is when your child is commencing the study of
Music. A poor teacher has wrecked many a promising
career. The best of all economy is the economy of securing
the best. If you put up with cheap things at the start, \
you will find that you will go through ali your musical
life, seeking for bargains,?bargains that are far more
expensive than you have any means of determining. Music
tuition in the North and West is far in excess of that in
the South. In the South, it runs from six to ten dollars
per month for first class instruction.
