to Augusta on Wednesday on ac
count of the death of Col. Purcell's
father. Capt. Ned Purcell. which oc
curred at his home in Augusta that
morning. Capt. Purcell was well
known in Newberry. where he had
,many friends who were pained to
learn the news of his death. He
was 66 years of age.
The following is from the Augusta
Chronicle of Thursday:
"Than Captain Purcell there was
Inever a more popular Augustan. He
wa for twenty years a conductor on
the Georgia railroad. in the days
when the road was comparatively
new and he built up an intimacy with
th patrons of the road that made
him one of the widest known men in
Georgia. And he was beloved. Of
the old guard but one now survives
ad the taking awvay of' Captain Pur
cell removes one whom to know was
to love and respect.
'Of sound business ability he had
b'tilt tip for himself a competency
and was at the -time of his death
manager of the Cement Gravel com
--At or.e time he wvas captain of
the county police and made in that
capacity an enviable reptitation."
A Successful Teacher.

Messenger. at Hartsville:.
The Una scrool, which has been
taught by Miss Mamie E. Crooks. of

their teacher, and the chaperones set
out from town for this beautful place.
On arriving at the grove we found
that Mr. Caldwell. with the assistance
of Mr. and Mrs. James Kibler. had
put everything in order. Neatness
was everywhere: It proved to be a
delightfully cool place to spend the
day. The tall oaks and hickory trees
spread their branches and afforded
a dense shade around the cool spring
which bubbled up and ran off down
the valley. Wild flowers and beauti
ful large cucumber bushes gave much
pleasure to the smaller children as
they gathered them and wove them
into garlands. It is indeed an ideal
place for a picnic and the pleasure
seekers of that day are certainly
much indebted to Mr. Caldwell for
the rare treat.

Dr. James A. B. Scherer. of Charles

Light Infantry. adressed the company
on Monday night. this being the last
meeting of the command before his
departure for his new field of duty
as president of Newberry college. Dr.
Scherer was elected chaplain of this
gallant old command upon the death
of Rev. Dr. A. Toomer Porter severai
Upon his recent acceptance of the
position of president of Newberry
college. he tendered his resignation
to' the company. but he was asked to
withdraw it. which he did. The duties
of chaplain do not require his rest
dence in Charleston and it was a
graceful compliment which the Wash
ington Light Infantry extended to
him', when it asked him not to resign
the office. A large attendance greeted
the fine pulpit orator and his address
was much enjoyed by all who heard
Dr. Cromer To Speak.
