Orangeburg, in a short time, sub
scribed $10,000 for a boat line.
Death of Dr. A. O. Dukes.
When the announcement of the
death of Dr. A. C. Dukes was made
Friday morning it cast a gloom over
the entire community, as it was not
generally known that he was sick.
He was out at his store on Monday
but was not well. Tuesday medical
aid was called and he was considered
from the first a very sick man. He
was carried to Columbia on Wednes
day night for an operation which
was performed at midnight. The op
eration was a very painful one and
thought to be a successful one, but
late Thursday night he rapidly grew
worse and about 12 o'clock that night
Dr. Dukes has long been a resi
dent and prominent business man of
this city. He was about sixty-one
years old. He leaves a wife and sev
eral brothers and sisters and a large
circle of friends to mourn his death.
He- was a prominent member of the
Baptist church for many years. The
funeral services will be conducted at
his late residence on Russell street
Sunday morning and interment will
be at Sunnyside cemetery.

THE DYING PINE?THE REMEDY.
Rquirements for Success in Protect
ing the living Pine.
The requirements for success in
any effort to protect the living pine
from the destructive 'attack of the
Southern pine beetle is the destruc
tion of the broods ol! the Southern
pmc 'beetle in the bark of the main
trunks of the dying infested trees be
fore they leave the bark. This is
accomplished by the B.'doptiou of one
or.^more different methods of direct
utilization of the infested'trunks or
treatment at direct expense In cases
where the wood cannot be utilized,
as spedfled In Part IV. of this.
The attachments of the best suc
cess from the practical application of
any of these methods will depend
on their adaptation to local conditions
and requirements for disposing of the
infested Umber and strict adherence
to certain details which are abso
lutely necessary to the destruction
of the broods.
'. The period in which to locate and
mark the trees that are actually in
foated and in which the marked trees
should be utilized or treated to kill
the broods is between the 1st of No
vember and the 1st of the following
March, but in some cases the period
may be extended to the 1st of May.
j The adoption of the method of de
jstroying the broods,, which in each
case is the most economical and effec
tual, can be determined by tne own
ers in each community if they are
sufficiently informed on tbe essential

of the infestation; (b) the interest

Dellvers to Sheriff Laurens Boy
Charged With Seiious Off ense.
The prompt action, Wednesday
night, of Sheriff Owings, Deputy Reid
and Rur?T Policeman Sullivan, and
the cool conduct of the officers after
arriving upon the grounds, probably

negro boy from the hands of an angry

It seems that Moody late Tuesday
afternoon accosted the young girls
as they were returning home in a
buggy from the mill, where the older
of the two is employed. Springing
from hiding on the roadside the ne
gro, bo the story goes, seized the
mule by the' reins and bringing the
team to a stop, sprang to the side of
the buggy and demanded with oaths
that the young ladies get out. With

made an effort to force them to alight,

Quickly, the news of the alleged at

found at home and promptly taken
in hand ,by the members of the man

identified as their would-be assailant.
Moody denied anything, but it is said
that there is strong proof that he isj
the right man. No other trouble is

Long Lino of Turkeys.
What would you say if you should
see a file of turkeys stretching from
San Francisco to Now York and from
New York back to Chicago? "Some
turkeys" probably. Well, one of the?e
professional estimators has figured it
out that the Thanksgiving turkeys to
bo consumed this year would make a
line about that long if placed single
file in marching order. But it is eas
ier to estimate than to acquire. Six
million turkeys is the estimate made
by the statistician who has imagined
this 4,000 mile streak of strutting
gobblers and humbler hens In line.
Accepting this reasoning as a mini
mum and supposing that the average
bird weighs nine pounds, it appears
that tbe people of the United States
will consume 54,000,000 pounds of
turkey this Thanksgiving.

The fertile genius of some society,
woman has invented the "chicken,
dance" and in the circles where so
much time is spent in showing how
viciously foolish people can bo the
dance promises to be the rage until
some new folly takes Its place. In
truth something was badly needed
to revive !ue iaded nerves and tastes
of the '.die lict. Monkey dinners and
dog parties had iost their novelty, the
bear dance was somewhat of a back

humanity compared to teaching an
ape to sit at dinner or the creation of
new diversions? What society needed
was something intellectual and in
