Swimming Pool For Newberry.
Those in Newberry who are in
terested in swimming. bathing and
aquatic sports, will be glad to learn
of the proposed enterprise of two of
the young business men of the town,
who are seriously considering the
matter of establishing a first class
swimming poel1 in Newberry.
This matter has been talked of for
some time, and it is very probable
that somet'hing definite will come of
it in the spring. In fact the promo
tors are very enthusiastic, rightly be
lieving that a first class place of that
sort, with proper accomodations for
both ladies and gentlemen. would be
well patronized in Newberry.
There is a fine spring on the south
ern edge of the city and the lay of
the land is such that a pool of am
ple dimensions could be constructed
and well fitte3 out without any enor
mouse outh.y c.f money, and the loca
tion is sucih that the resort would
be easily acessible to the people.

:ion of the cotton growers of New
berry county, held in Newberry on

of the association for this county be

2. That a meeting for each school
district be held on larch 3. at two

The great amount of interest
which has been manifested by the
cotton planters throughout the coun
ty in the movement for a twenty-five
per cent. reduction in the acreage and
a similar reduction in the use of fer
tilizers seems to insure a full atten
dance at the meetings in the various
school districts on next Friday. It
has been repeatedly uiged that what
ever is to be accomplished by the far
mers must be accomplished now. and
that the only way for the farmers to
accomplish anything is to organize
and stand by theo rganization. The
movement has already enlisted the
hearty co-operation of bankers. ner
chants. professional men. and. in fact,
those of every vocation in the south,
who realize that what benefits the
cot:on planters must benefit the
whole south and every business and
industry in the south.
It is very earnestly desired that
every cotton planter who can do so
attend the meetings to be held in the
school districts on next Friday.

story of the scene in Bethany where

For Magistrate in No. 2.
The Newberry legislative deleg
tion has recommended to Govern
Heyward the appointment of S.
Cunningham as magistrate in No.
township. No. 2 township was for
merly under the jurisdiction of the
magistrate resident at Newberry, his
territory including Townships Nos. I,
2 and 8. No. 2 has been divorced
from Nos. t and 8, however, and will
hereafter have its own magistrate.
The recommendation of the Newber
ry delegation means Mr. Cunning
ham's appointment, the governor in
such matters, following the usual
custom, being guided solely by the
recommendation of the legislative
delegation from the county in which
the appointment is to be made.
