PREDICTS OF WEAIBER
THE "DUTCH PROPHET" TELLS
CS WHAT TO EXPECT.
Says the Temperature for October
Will Be Above Normal, but Good
for Gathering Crops.
The "Dutch Weather Phophet"
herewith gives a forsecast of temper
ature, precipitation and killing frost
for the South Atlantic section?the
killing frost embracing the region
north of the parallel on which Co
lumbia is located.
The temperature of the month of
October will be much above normal,
with the probability of an extension
of October temperatures into the first
week in November.
?Killing frost will occur in the reg
ion as above named on the period
which is central around November 13.
Killing frost occurred last year about
three weeks earlier than the above
There is a double importance to
the date, as above given, on account
of the fact that tne equinoctial storm
period occurs in November this year,
or at least the most stormy condi
tions of the equinoctial period, for
the tropical storms sometimes do oc
cur even as late as December lit.
The date for such tropical storm I
this year is November 18. Such a|
storm, I believe, will effect both the I
Gulf and South Atlantic coasts atj
the period named here. In connec
tion with this forecast it will be ob
served that no storm of a tropical
character has so far occurred during
.the equinoctial period of 1911, the
Charleston storm being semi-tropical
in nature and not within the course
of the regular tropical storms.
"Thus my forecast of March 10 was
not misleading, and yet at the same
time, that forecast named August 29
as a period of greatest precipitation,
and it was to be expected at such a
eeason in the summer it would par
take of severe character, but being
difficult to locate as to where it would
be more or less destructive. The fact
that it was confined to a comparative
ly small area shows that it would
have been difficult to forecast, but
yet, at the same time, very severe on
account of its confined limits.
The peculiar meteorological condi
tions which have prevailed in 1911
will continue, and in a number of
respects account for the abnormal
temperatures, placing the amount of
heat about 500 degrees above normal
for the year so far. And the end is
October will be a favorable month
for harvesting crops. The periods
of greatest precipitation are 12-15,
with cool wave; 23-27, with cool
wave. The indications are that the
week of the State fair, beginning Oc
tober 30, will be fair and warm.
The precipitation for the winter
and spring will be much above nor
mal. 'The indications are that the
average amount of rainfall will have
a good balance on the right hand
side of the weather ledger when the
farmer begins to plant cotton in
The winter of 1911-12 will be gen
erally moderate in tempedature. The
dates of the colder periods will be
given later in a special forecast. Two
snows east of the Blue Ridge are in
cluded in the probabilities of the
winter of 1911-12.

Trains on Pregnall Branch.
The Elloree correspondent of The
State says: "The Orangeburg Cham
ber of Commerce appears to be dis
satisfied with the present schedule
over the Pregnall's Branch of the
Atlantic Coast Line Railroad, and
it is understood that efforts will be
made to have this schedule changed.
Some time ago, at a meeting of the
railroad commissioners, the Atlantic
Coast Line Railroad officials and the
patrons along this line, a schedule
was agreed upon and directly after
wards put into operation. As far
as can be learned from the patrons
along the line this schedule is giving
eminent satisfaction and is the best
since the passenger train was put
into operation. Tie connection and
mail service with four trains are suf
ficient and there is no need for a
change think some of the people who
patronize the road."
Hope They Will Come.
Among the guests to be invited to
the Dollar Supper to be given by the
Chamber of Commerce are President
Finley, of the Southern Railway,
President Emmerson, of the Atlantic
Coast Line Railway, Secretary Ham
by, of the Columbia Charmber of
Commerce, Secretary McKeand of the
Charleston Chamber of Commerce,
Mr. J. B. Finster, of the Land and In
dustrial Department of the Southern
and Mr. Clark of the Land aud Indus
trial Department of the Atlantic
Coast Line Railway. Al Ithe gentle
men named are interested in the de
velopment of the State and have done
much in that direction. We hope they
will all be here.
Shot Boy by Mistake.
A negro named Mackey Oliver has
been placed in the county jail, charg
ed with shooting and probably fatal
ly wounding Wash Houser, a negro
boy about 14 years of age. The shoot
ing occurred in the Middlepen sec
tion and it is understood that
Oliver was attempting to shoot an
other negro and fired into a crowd
walking along the road. His aim
was not so good, it seems, and the
-shot took effect in young Houser.
Moderate Weather Promised.
Moderate temperature for this
section is promised by the weather
for this week. Light snow fell in the
upper part of New York on Saturday,
and the weather bureau predicts
frosts in the Northwest and Northern
States from the upper Mississippi val
ley eastward this week. (

Passing of a Good Citizen.
In the de.ith of Mr. Joseph B. Tray
wick, which sad event occurred, on
last Friday at his home near Cope,
the County loses a good citizen. He
had reached his fiftieth year when he
was stricken down with typhoid fev
er. He was a member of the Meth
odist Church, and was highly esteem
ed by a large circle of friends. He
is survived by his wife and one lit
tle boy, to whom he was devoted.
They have the sympathy of all in
their deep sorrow.
Stables and .Barns Burned..
Mr. W. H. B. Fairey, who lives
over in the Fork a few miles from
this city, Host his bams and stables
Friday night by fire. The stock was
liberated from the stables but the
; feed stored away in the barns was
lost. The fire was under considerable
headway when discovered about 9
o'clock and the buildings coul l not
be saved. This is quite a heavy
blow, but Mr. Fairey is a prosperous,
energetic farmer, and will soon have
his burned buildings restored.
Fin-.? Hay Crop in Sight.
The Orangeburg correspondent of
The News and Courier says "at. one
period of the extremely dry season,
it was not thought that there would
be any hay crop, but since the rains
the latter part of July and during the
month of August, grasses of all kinds
have sprung up in large quantities
and have grown very rapidly; so now
there Is prospect of a very fair hay
yield." Now let it be carefully gath
ered and housed and it will help out
the short, corn crop.
Wants Sunday Trains.
There is somo talk of a Sunday
train on the Prcgnall Branch of the
Atlantic Coast Line Railway. Some
think it would pay handsomely and
would fill a long felt need, while
others take the opposite view. A
Sunday train has never been operat
ed on the road and it is understood
that there are some obstacles in the
way, barring them, however, some
of the patrons would be glad to see
one put into operation.

(?ivc a Helping Hand.
When you pull down the town in
which is your home, you are pulling
down yourself, and when you build
up you are building up yourself and
your neighbor. Try and banish from
your mind the mistaken idea that all
good things are away off in some
other locality. Give your town all the
praise it can legitimately bear. It
certainly will do you no harm and
will cost you nothing; and above all
patronize your home institutions?
incluriing the newspapers.
Visit the Public Schools.
Few people have any idea what an
incentive it is to both teacher and
scholar to know that parents and
outsiders are taking a lively interest
in their work. We believe the "lit
tle folks" at school appreciate such
interest more perhaps than the larger
ones. Still the effect is not lost, on
any of them, and wo hope every par
ent will take a hint from this and
place the public school on their visit
