Geo. T. Wood. assistant superin
tendent of the salary and allowances
division of the postoffie department
is in the city for the purpose of lo
cating a new building for the post- i

ly too small, on account of the big v
business done. s
Mr. Brown consulted Mr. Mower d
as to the postoffice occupying the c
ground floor of the Fraternity hail, i
wihiich will be Ptt up soon. Others t
were also consul:ed and there will s
no doubt be many bids made, as sev
eral other brick buildings will be put
up this fall.
There is great need for a new or S
larger building for the postoffice. r
Newberry is a second class postonfice. f
and there should be ample accommo- c
dations for the handling of the mails. (

Miss Eunice Crisp.
"Thou hast all seasons for thine
own 0 Death!" Life has many con
trasts. In Mr. John Crisp's home on
Easter Sabbath the joyous wedding
bells rang out of happy hearts. Now
on the first of August the sad funeral
dirge gives forth its mdurnful note.
Yes. the sweet spirit of a loved one
takes its flight to its eternal home.
Sixteen years ago two little girl
babies, Eunice and Mamie. were
precious gifts to the home of Mr.
and Mrs. Crisp. Fondly they were
cared for while passing through
youth into young womanhood. As
worthy young women they were
much pleasure to their parents, but
now one is not. Miss Eunice was
laid to rest in Bush River church
graveyard. She and her twin sister,
Mrs. Henderson, joined this church
three years ago. a fact which gives
great comforc to the bereaved. It

with fever, during which time she
wvas carefully treated by Dr. Kibler

POISON WAS IN TURKEY EGG.
And it Caused the Death of the Negro
Who Stole It.
Columbia, Aug. 7.-According to a
letter recelived 'by t'he governor from
J. M. Ward, a prominent citizen of
Wards on the Augusta r-oad, an in
vestigationi is wanted of a mysteri
os case of poisoning which took
place near -there some time ago.
It seems, according to t-he letter.
that a litle negro boy, a son of a
negro named Jim Ryan, ate a turkey
egg which h'e had stolen from a nest
and died a few hours afterwa.rds. An
examinattion of tihe egg showed t'h-at
there was strychn:ine in it and that
it had evidently beten prepared for
this very purpose. However, the cor
oner was 'ill and the .investigation
made by h:is substitute was a very
ordinary charact-er, so no arrests have
These facts, as set for@. in the let
ter has led to the whole thing being
placed in the hiands of the solicitor
with instructions to push the investi
gation. Mr. Ward comments rather
critically on the fact that solicitors
have not been very industrious in
lookng into such matters and th-at
if the case were investigated a suir
prise would follow.
