the pay of managers 'had beent ex- t;
hausted and that we would hav-e to

now ready to pay the accounts, less C
the amount of the discount, which
is seven cents and nine mills on the v.

ON THE DIAMOND.
Citadel Failed to Score Against New
berry-Erskine Friday and Clem
In two games played on the Char
leston diamond on Monday and Tues
day afternoons of this week the South
Carolina Military Academy failed to
score againct the Newberry college
team. The score of the first game
was 6 to o and that of the second
game 7 to o. In the first game Simp
son pitched for Newberry. gaining
twelve men and yeilding but one hit.
The support giver Simpson is shown
by the fact that at the end of the game t
there was not an er:or to Newberry's
credit. The Citadel pitcher allowed
seven hits and gained but four men.
Errors, Citadel 4.
In the second game Crouch pitch
ed for Newberry. Hits: Citadel 5,
Newberry 7; errors: Citadel 4, New
berry 3. The News and Courier says
of the game that "Newberry was sim
ply too strong for the soldiers, and
the latter had few chances qf winning
the game or even s!oring.'
Erskine in Greenwood Today. c
The Newberry tean will go to Green- c
wood today, where a game will be t
played with Erskine on the Green
wood diamond this afternoon, pre
ceding the oratorical contest there to- t
night. In two games with Newber
ry this season Erskine has failed to t
score. being severely defeated by t
Newberry, one of the games being
in Newberry and the other on the I
Erskine diamond. With a large C
crowd of fans from the homes of t
both teams considerable enthusiasm
is expected at* the game this after- t
noon. and everybody expects New- e
berry to win.
Clemson Comes Saturday.
On Saturday afternoon t'he Clem
son team will be in Newberry. Dur- r
ing the whole season this game has d
been looked forward to by the local i
enthusiasts, and one of the closest
games ever seen on the home dia- c
mond is expected. Clemson has a
strong team, and so has Newberry. 3
Newberry has not yet lost a college P
game and wants the pennant. The t
teams are old rivals. 'having played h
remarkably close games during tne s
past several years. The game prom
ises to be exciting from start to fin- h
ish, and it seems probable that the at-b
tendance will easily be the largest
at a base ball game in Newberry for e
a long time past.
A Pretty Marriage.
"Bring flowers, white flowers, for the
bride to wear:
They were born to blush in her
The marriage of Mr. Calvin Hen-C
derson at the Moilohon church on
Sunday was a most pleasant oc
casion of this Easter. The beautifult
and impressive ceremony wvas per
formed by the Rev. Geo. A. Wright
at 2 p. m. Miss Eva Wright presided
at the organ. The handsome couple
and their you:hful attendants, pre- t
ceded by the little Misses Ida May ~
Crisp and Pauline Slighn marched
from the home of the bride's father,
Mr. John Crisp, to the Chapel. which
had been nicely decorated for the oc
casion. The Chapel was wveil filled c
by an appreciative. crowd. During t
the ceremony a solemn stilln ess per- j
vaded the hall. all seeming to realize
the dignity of the occasion. After
the vows were taken and an earnest
blessing invoked the bridal party and
invited guests returned to the bride's
home. where a sumptuous wedding ~
feast was spread, and very much en
joyed. The entire party was hand
somely dressed in costumes suiting ~
the occasion, and the young couple ~
received quite a number of pretty and c
useful presents. Mr. Henderson was a
reared on a farm in Greenwood coun
ty where his parents still liv'e. He
has been working in the cotton mill
for a number of years and is very 1
highly spoken of by thiose whin know
him. The bride is one of Mollohon's
pretty girls, and is highly esteemed 11
by the officials. The superintendent. *
Mr. WVilbur, and wife, attended the
marriage and the president. Mr. Geo.
W. Summer. showed interest by his t
kindness and thoughtful offerings for
the occasion. May an answer to the
fervent -prayer- offered by Rev. Mr. c
Wright be the rich crown to this hap- ~
p,.ari. J. A. L.
