LOAFING WILL NOT BE ALLOWED
Mayor Sain Lays Down the Law to
Mayor W. M. Sain commenced a
work on Tuesday morning for which
he is entitled to i" e thanks of all lor
inaugurating and he hopes he will
succeed in carrying it out The May
or instructed Chief of Police Fischer
to see that all the dives in the city
were cleaned out. He said that he
intended to put some of the loafing
negroes; found at these places to
work and that right speedily.
He instructed the policemen
through the chief to make a thorough
search of these dives at once, and
that all negroes found loafing about
pool rooms and other dives must ,be
put under arrest and brought before
him on the charge of vagrancy. This
is a good move, and we hope it will
be kelt up until the loafing places
of all idle uegroes are broken up, and
then kept broken up.
In his talk Mayor Sain very truly
said that there were enough negroes
loafing about the city to pick all of
the cotton within five miles of the
[ city, but that they could mot be hired
for love nor money. He said that if
they would not work of their own
volition, then he would find some
I thing for them to do on the streets.
Agfln we say hurrah for Mayor Sain.
Everyone should stand up to him inj

YARN'S ASSAILANT ESCAPES.
[ Xegro Who Slashed Branchville Man
Is Still at Large.
As was stated in the last issue of
The Times and Democrat Fletcher
Varns was cut severely about the
neck'on last Sunday afternoon about
j three o'clock by a negro named Will
Shuler, near Varn's home, about four
miles from Branchville. For some
cause Varn and the negro exchanged
a few words, which resutled in the
negro drawing his knife and cu.ting
Varns on the neck.
I Varns then drew his pistol, which j
contained only one cartridge, and fir
ed at: him; the negro then rushed
upon him and cut him several times
before any one could interfere. The
?negro who did the cutting has made
his escape and has not been captur
ed. All of the other negroes present I
have been arrested and are held in|
jail ,by order of the sheriff.
Varns is reported to be getting |
along very well aad will recover un
less complications set in. There were
four gashes, and one stabr one gash
on the left side and three gashes and
stab on the right side. It was nec
essary to take t wenty-five stich es.
Shuler will be caught and punished |
for Iiis crime sooner or later.
Amid tasteful decorations of ever
greens and hot house plants, and in
the presence of a host of friends, Miss
Lillie A. Felkel, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Wm. Felkel, of the Jericho Sec
tion, Calhoun County, was united In
marriage, Wednesday afternoon, at
five o'clock, to Mr. J. Edward Bail
ey, of Palmervilte, S. C, Rev. L. L.
Bedenbaugh, pastor of the bride offi
Promptly at the appointed hour,
Mr. Raysor Felkel escorted Miss Olive
Shuler to the instrument, where she
so sweetly rendered that famous wed
ding march, Lohangrln, and to thel
strains of which attendants marched I
in the spacious parlor as follows:
Mr. Calhoun Guerry with Miss Devie
Smith; Mr. Artie Felkel with Miss
Shever Hungerpiller, Mr. Herbert
Felkel with Miss Alma Felkel, Mr.
Elisha Guerry with Miss Annie Fel
kel. Then followed the skeet and I
lovely bride on the arm of her in
tended. The words were spoken that |
made them man and wife.
We Should Do Our Share.
The State says: The National Corn |
Exposition to be held in Columbia in j
the winter of 1912-1913 will be the
greatest thing ever attempted for the
agricultural development of this
State and section In. immediate and
direct results it will ,be better than
a million-dollar exposition. North
Carolima and Georgia will derive ben
efit, only in lesser degree. Every
South Carolina community should
put a shoulder to the wheel. Colum
bia is doing a big part, but the ben
efits are to be reaped by every coun
ty in the State." Orangeburg Coun-|
ty should do her share.
A Splendid Suggestion.
Our cotemporary, The Sun, says:
"Wie suggest the idea that the opera j
house property owned by the city be
turned into a high school building.
Both of our school buildings are
crowded, and quarters for high
school purposes are .badly needed.
What says the public?" We endorse j
the suggestion of The Sun, and j
amend it by suggesting that the city |
then buy the lot next to the Presby
terian Church on Russell street and|
erect a handsome city building on it.
Exchange the Old Books.
Parents should remember that all
the school books that have been us
ed for the past five years are ex
changeable, and they should take ad
vantage of the law when they buy
new books and exchange them. An
old book is worth just one-half what
the new book of the same kind and
grade is worth. This reduces the
cost of the new books considerable,
and parents and others who have to I
buy new books should proiit by the]
law by exchanging the old ones.
Meeting of Building Committee.
The committee having in charge the
building of a Sunday school building,
for the children of St. Paul Method
ist Church met on Monday evening
and discussed the ways and means of
getting to work. It was finally agreed
to invite an architect to come here
and consult with the committee.

ago, Mr. J. C. Gray lost a mule from
somewhat peculiar circumstances, but
when Mr. Thomas's cows began dying

came to the conclusion that the di

HELP THE ORPHANS.
Don't Forget That Next Saturday Is
Orphanage Work Day.
For the last few years the various
orphanages of the State have united
In asking the good people of the state
to give the proceeds of one day's la
bor to the orphans. The last Satur
day in September has been set apart
as "Work Day," and all, both grown
people and children, who feel inter
ested in helping the orphans are ask
ed to give that day's labor or income
to the orphanage of their choice.
There are about 250 orphans at
iThornwell orphanage (Presbyterian),
Clinton; almoBt as many at Connie
Maxwell (Baptist), Greenwood; 225
at Epworth orphanage (Methodist)
Columbia; 60 at the Church home
These orphan children are being
clothed, fed and educated entirely by
the gifts of the people, and it is ear
neatly hoped that a liberal response
w:ill be made to this appeal. Let
none fail to send the wages or income
of pne day's labor to the orphanage
I of his choice. Make remittances by
check, postoffice money order or by
express to either of the four orphan
ages named below:

Editor The Times and Democrat:
A few days ago when the opera
tives of the Orange Mills learned that
the management intended to convert
the Orange Mills chapel on Doyle
street into a dwelling 'house, they
wept. They had worshiped here so
long that its very walls were dear to
them, and when they knew that the
decree had goen forth, they were
Many years ago Mr. Geo. H. Cornel
son when he\was sole proprietor,
built this chapel and dedicated it to
the worship of God, and for a long
time the Rev. T. E. Wannamaker,
the Rev. J. L. McClees, and I believe
I the Rev. Edwin Muller, D. D., former
I ly pastor of the Presibyterlan church,
held religious services here.
No doubt Mr. Cornelson realized
that the more the operatives were
brought under religious influences,
the more they received educational
advantages, the better workmen they
would become, the happier their lives
would be, and consequently the more
I efficient their work, and the mdll
'would pay better dividends. These
same motives have induced the Gran
Iteville Mills to erect and equip a
splendid .building for the use of their
operatives, at' a cost of over ten
thousand dollars, and the Columbia
and Sparta.nburg Mills to build
churches and schoolhouses and pay
the salaries of the preachers and
All honor to Mr. Cornelson for what
he has done in giving this church for
the spiritual good of his" people.
The question has been asked, are
[our mills and manufacturers and em
ployers of labor doing all they can|'
for the spiritual and temporal good
of their workmen. God commands
us to love our neighbor as ourselves,
and everyone who comes under our
Influence or renders service to us Is
No wonder the people wept.
Forward Not Backward
Death of Mrs. Julia Hatch.
Mrs. Julia Hatch, wife of Mr. Mel
vin Hatch, died at the family resi-|
dence on Fenwick street yesterday!
afternoon after a short illness from
nervous prostration. Mrs. Hatch
was a most excellent lady, and was
highly esteemed by a large circle of
friends. Her death was a shock, as
it came unexpectedly. Mrs. Hatch
was a consistent member of St. Paul
I Methodist Church, and exemplified in
her life the beautiful tenets of the
religion she professed. Besides her
husband, Mrs. Hatch leaves five chil
dren to mourn her death. Her loved
ones have the consolation of knowing
that she has only gone before, and
now awaits them in \the better land.
Pregnal Branch Schedule.
An effort is being made to have'
the schedule on the Pregnall Branch
of the Atlarntic Coast Line Railway so
[arranged that people living in the ter
ritory it serves could come to this |
city at an earlier hour in the morn
ing and stay later in the afternoon
than they now can do. A special
committee from our most.prominent
merchants have ljeen appointed to
cooperate with the railroad commit

J an effort to have the change made.
The committee is composed of .v.essrs.
W. L. Moseley, Chairman ^ bol Kohn
and W. P. Pairey. The committee
will do all It can to bring utout the
desired change in the schedule.
Market Cotton Slowly.
The fact that so few farmers and
others attended the meeting held
here on Monday to boost cotton
should not be construed to mean that J
our people are not interested in the
price of the great staple. One rea
son why the* farmers did not attend
was the fact that they are lnsy get
ting out their cotton, and it was no
use for the business men to attend

very few people at the meeting. We
