VARIOUS AND ALL ABOUT.
The council chamber on Tuesday
morning, was the scene of a lively
'possum hunt. The animal had been
captured out in the county but hap
pened to get loose from its captor
while in the council chamber room
and thus afforded the pleasure of a
second chase. The plucky little
beast made a valiant stand in the cor
ner behind one of the heavy desks,
and it was only after considerable
trouble that Mr. Possum was dis
lodged and put back in the sack.
The dry weather continues. Broad
and Saluda rivers are lower than

To Study Medicine.
Mr. James N. McCaughrin, who
for several years has been book-keep
er in the Commercial bank. has re
signed his position and will study
medicine. He had this in mind wvhen:
he graduated from Princeton a few
year ago but on account of business in
terests here he came home. He is
deservedly popular in his present po
sition, always polite and courteous
and attentive to his duties and his
friends regret to have him leave the
bank. They wish for him, however,
abundant success in the profession
he has chosen. He will leave for
Baltimore on the first of November.
It is understood that he will be suc
ceeded in the bank by .Mr. Jesse Y.
McFall, who has been book-keeper
for Summer Bros for the past sev

The beautiful home was nagnifi
cently decorated for the happy oc
casion. In the parlor a heavy bank
of asparagus ferns and white chry
santhemums against the mantel was
increased in loveliness by festoons
of green smilax twined gracefully
about the room. The dining room
was also tastefully decorated in white
and green. The hallway was de
corated in the autumnal ihades with
red and golden leaves in abundance
forming a kind of delicate trellis
work entwined in the balustrade.
The wedding took place just at
high noon, and immediately later an
elaborate wedding breakfast was
served, after which the happy couple
took the train for Greenville where
they will make their future home.
The wedding presents were profuse
and beautiful, among them being
some truly magnificent pieces of sil
ver and cut glass. There were also
some lovely china pieces.
The bride is a daughter of the late
Captain and Mrs. J. Y. McFall and
has been one of Newberry's most
harming maidens, whom Greenville
may welcome with pride as an equal
ly charming matron. Mr. Feagle
was originally from this county and

business man in Greenville.
Opening Number on the College Ly
Never has there come to Newberry
a better recommended literary at
traction than that with which the
college lyceum course this fall will
be opened. The dramatic critics and
the press are unanimous in their un
stinted praise of Professor Clark.
The Saginaw (Michigan) Courier
Herald gives the following account
of his appearance there.
The reading of Stephens Phillip's
dramatic arrangement of "Ulysses"
by Professor Clark of the University
of Chicago, was generally agreed to
be one of the distinct literary treats
of the convention. For fully an hour
and a half the large audience sat si
lent. gazing absorbedly on Professor
Clark and listening to his resonant
voice as he declaimed the passages
describing the familiar adventures of
the Greek hero. He showed him
self of marvellous dramatic power
and doubtless succeeded in impress
ing on liis hearers phases of the old
story which they never before
thought of. The dramatization opens
in Ulysses' palace, where Telmachus,
his son, is quarreling with the drunk
en guests who take advantage of his
father's continued absence to live
easy on his possessions. Prof essor
Clark then turned to the scene of
Ulysses on the island of Ogygia and
pictured masterfully the emotion of
the hero on experiencing a longing
for his home and wife after being un
der the inliuence of the nymph
Calypso for many years. His fare

to Hades and outbursts of emotion
as he underwent the trials prescribed
by the gods, his return to his home,
disguised, revealing himself at the
proper moment, were scenes pictured
vividly and with fine artistic percep
tion of the various characters pre
Prof. Clark's reading in Newberry
is set for the night of November ist,
in the college auditorium.
Wanted in Laurens.
Grant Robertson, otherwise known
as W\ill Robertson, colored, who has
been wanted in Laurens for almost
a year, and who has been all over the
counties lying between Laurens and
Richland, was captured in Newberry
by Chief of Police Bishop and Sher
iff M. M. Buford.
The negro was reported to be on
the material train at the C., N. & L.
track and he was easily, with this in

ARM CUT OFF.
Painful Accident Happening to Col
Something nver two weeks ago the
seventeen-year-old son of Laurence
Jackson. colored, met with a serious
and almost fatal accident while work
ing at the ginnery of Mr. G. M.
Werts in this county. It ultimately
cost him the loss of his arm which
was amputated above the elbow by
Dr. W. D. Sern. The remarkable
part of the occurence is that the boy
is now out in the field picking cotton
with the other negroes, and is feel
ing no ill effects from his terrible
It is stated that the colored boy
was working at the ginnery as a
packer at the time the affair happen
ed. He walked in front of part of
the machinery, having ceased for a
moment from his work of packing,
and coming too close his flying shirt
sleeve was caught in the saws. Before
he could tear himself away his whole
hand was drawn in, terrible lacerated,
and completely severed at the wrist.
Dr. W. D. Senn was sent for and
deemed it expedient to amputate
above the elbow. He states that the
recovery was the most phenomenal,
in point of time, which has ever come
beneath his observation as . prac
Many Newberrians remember Dr.
J. Wi. Folk, a former citizen of this
county, who lived at one time at Ja
lapa, and some years ago moved to
Young's Island in Georgetown coun
ty, where he holds a government po
sition as quarantine officer.
Cards of invitation have been r
ceived in Newberry, announcing the
marriage of his daughter, Minnie
Elizabeth :o Wade Hampton Miley
at the chapel at Young's Island, at
high noon, October 19, 1904.
Mr. Walker Griffin, the overseer at
Mr. H. H. Abrams' ginnery, in this
county, met with a very painful and
serious accident on Monday while
attending to the gin machinery.
He was working with the cotton
at the gin when his shirt-sleeve was
caught by the saws, drawing his hand
into the machinery and mangling it
arribly. A physician was sent for
immediately and it is thought that
by careful treatment the injured
member may be saved.

WHISKEY AND PISTOL.
Shooting Scrape Among Negroes
There was another big row Wed
nesday on "Bluc Ruin Hill.
Storks JJes, colored, loaded himself
with whiskey, loaded his little pis
tol with powder and shot, and went
on the warpath. seeking to intimi
date all colored citizens so unfortun
ate as to come whitin range of his
vision or his gun. Complaint was
immediately lodged with the city au
thorities. an investigation was made,
and Jiles was taken into custody.
From the facts brought out it
seems that at the beginning of the
trouble Jiles was at his own home.
An old woman known as Alice Far
row passed by and Jiles called her to
stop. She refused to do so, and al
leges that Jiles followed her and has
tened her already speedy retreat with
a few uncomplimentary remarks,
punctuated by pistol shots.
It is claimed that Alice Farrow
went on down to the house of Cindy
Bates and Jiles followed, under the
impression that the said Alice was
upon the premises with the criminal
intent of accomplishing Cindy's de
mise by the use of ten pounds of
poison. As a self-constituted pro
tector of Cindy it seems that Jiles
again produced his artillery with
murderous intent. He was quieted
down, however, and later put in the
guard house. When brought be
fore the mayor yesterday morning
he was still in a mood too festive
to be much impressed with the dig
nity of the occasion, and after repeat
ed futile efforts by the officers to
bring upon him a proper sense of his
consummate wickedness he was fined
ten dollars for contempt of court and
locked up again. He was also fined
five dollars for being drunk and dis- 1
orderly, with an additional fifteen
tacked for carrying an unlawful wea
