Recovered From Injury.
About tivo weeks ago Mr. F. WV.
1-Higgins met with a painful accident
'while endeavoring to catch a chick
wen thief. A negro man broke into
Nr. Higgins' hen house, and made
such noise in escaping that the owner
gave chase. The thief took~ to the
woods near Mr. Higgins' residence,
and the chase continued some little
alistance. Mr. Higgins stumbled in
the darkness and fell heavily ag.'nst
a tree stump, breaking two ribs and
sustaining painful bruises. He has
remained. perfectly quiet at home
since, and consequently is almost re
covered this week. He is now able
to be on the street.
County Home For the Poor.
The county board, at its last reg
-ular meeting, reelected Mr. Jno. A.
Suber to the position of superint en
~dent of the county home for the poor,
a position which he has most satis
factorily filled for the past several
years. A gentleman of Newberry re
cently paid a visit to the home and
came back much impressed with
the emir ently proper condition
in which it was kept.
The building is clean, well heated
and ventilated, everything is neat and
clean, and the best of order prevails.
Institutions of this kind often cause
no little trouble to the counties
-wherein they are established, because
.-of conditions directly opposite to
-those which make the Newberry
scounty home a credit to the
-county, and for this the county
board is to be congratulated.
The county home is not altogether
-self-supporting, but the farm goes a
long way toward paying the expenses,
and the regular county funds which
are required to supplement this are
...e excesively large. -

Coroner F. Marion Lindsay was
notified last night that Will Hill, col

Bennett Amick, a white man, near the
plantation of Mr. Godfrey Harmon,
in No. 7. township, some time ago,
had died yesterday afternoon. It
had been thought that the .negro

reason that these young men only
shot in self defense, the fines, which
the mayor was compelled imder the
law to impose, were afterwards re

THE VERDICT STANDS.
Decision In Case of Robert Watkins
vs. the Glen Lowry Manu
j.1ulge Ernest Gary has announced
his decision concerning the motion
for a new trial in the case of Robert
\Vatkins against the Glen Lowry
Manufacturing company. He decided
in favor of plaintiff. The verdict,
which was for $2,000, stands. The
case was tried in Newberry at the last
session of the court of common
pleas. The suit was to recover dam
ages for personal injuries received
by Robert Watkins, while working
for the Glen Lowry company, and
which, it was alleged, were received
through negligence of the company.
The jury rendered a $2.ooo verdict,
and a motion was made for new trial.
This -notion was argued in Green
wood, and Judge Gary reserved his
decision, which was announced today.
The Mendelssohn Quartette.
It is announced that the next num
ber on the college lyceum program
will be the famous Mendelssohn
Quartette. This company will ap
pear in Newberry, at the college au
ditorium, on the night of December
14. Miss Marguerite Smith, the best
child impersonator on the American
platform. will lie with the company
this year. The company has been
touring the south this fall and the
press comments have been most fav
Drable. One publication says:
Without any question there is no
Lyceum attraction in the field today
more popular, -widely known, and de
serving. than the Mendelssohn Quar
tette. Six years of constant work
wiLh Lyceum audiences has given
them an experience which. combined
with true talent, vemperament and
training, enables them to touch the
responsive chord in every audience.
This year finds Dr. W. Del. Harta,
late member of the Metropolitan
Opera company of New York. in the
role of first tenor, and Mr. Richard
E. Yarndley as baritone and 'cellist.
It is safe to say that this superb com
bination will easily represent the best
'ffort ever presented by the Mendel
slohns. As heretofore the quartette
will be supported by Marguerite
Smith. originator of the famous child
impersonations 'and greatest living
exponent of that art. Altogether a
great company combining two en
tertainments in one.

The weather was magnificent. The
passage of the king in procession to
and from the palace of the senate was
a gorgeous spectacle. In his speech
the king said:
"When for the first time, I spoke
before parliament, I affirmed my
strong belief in liberty. My exper

lief and has persuaded me that only
with liberty can the ponderous pro
blemst now standing before all the
peoples of the world, raised by the
new aspiration and new attitudes of
the social forces, be solved. My
government will continue to follow
the policy of granting ample liberty
within the limits of the law, which
should be strongly defended and
which has met with such strong ap
probation from the coun.r,'"
The king then announced the in
troduction of bill having the object
of progressively elevating the con

and labor, substituting co-operation

without this, he said, and when once
secured, organization went a long

Mr. Pearce's talk on methods was
particularly interesting and instruc
