MR. J. H. CHAPPELL'S BOND.
There Was Something Defective and
Gov. Heyward Declined to Sign
Mr. Chappell's Commission.
Last winter N. J. Mayer, the dispen
ser at Newberry, died and was suc
ceeded by J. H. Chappell. It appears
that Chappell was elec-ed for the un
.xpired term and that the :otity
,board at a recent meeting ejected
Chappell to succeed himself for the
full term. beginning September 1st.
The bond was sent here several days
ago for approval but there was some
thing defective about it.
Gcv. Hevward declined to sign the
eommission until the bond should be
filed in proper form. F. H. Dominick.
a lawyer from Newberry. waited on
the governor yesterday and urged
that the commission be signed. but
Gov. Heyward did not do so. Chap
pell will hold his office unbil his suc
cessor is elected and can qualify, so
the dispensary will run right along
until it is closed by the county board
as ordered by the people in the recent
election. It is believed that the earn
estness with which Chappell's com
mission was sought indicates that
some kind of fight will !be instituted
to keep the dispensary from being
The overwhelmning vote in 1rew
berry county has occasioned a great
deal of surprise. There are to be elec
Lions in other counties soon and it is
believed that the result in Newberry
will be repeated in other counties.
There will be an eleccion in York
coun:V on the 26th of September and
one at Ma-ion on the 19th of this
month. Horry. Florence and Lan
caster will vote out the dispensary on
the 3rd of October and the election
will be held in Spartanburg on the
14ch of November.
. Greenville, Anderson, Edgefield,
Darlington, Fairfield, Lexington and
several other counties are on the
verge of elections, some of the coun
ties named merely waiting on the su
preme court to declare its construc
tion of the consticutionality of tlie
Brke law before those counties go
ahead with the expense of an election.
MR. A. ?. BOOTH RESIGNS.
Secretary and Stenographer of the
D spensary Investigation Has
Sent in His Resignation.
The St .
There is considerable speculationl
here as to what will be brought out
'by the investigating committee at its
meeting at ,Sumter next week. It is
presumed that there must be some
matters in that territory to look after
and it is supposed that Mr. L. W.
Boykin will a%pear at that time and
will make the statement in which he
savs he will exonerate himself from
the charge in regard to the labels.
It is not known whether or not
Spartanburg will furnish the custom
arv sensation, but it is presume.d there
will be some outcome of Capt. Fant's
testimony. Capt. Fant told his evi
dence in a very convincing manner,
but it has been assailed as "hearsay"
and B. W. Ewbank in a c: -d in the
Spartanburg Herald has accused Capt.
Fant of being guilty of practically the
same thing that Capt. Fant charg i
against Ewbank. But Capt. Fa I
made his sratement under oath Pu -
lic and in the face of some of the men
whom he accused.
The investigation last week did not
develop anything as to Richland coun
tv. and indeed i: is claimed that if the
dispensary business is clean anywhere
it is in Richland county.
Mr. A. H. Booth. the stenographer
of the dspensary committee, has re
signed and will not be present at the
neeting in Sumter next week. The
committee will have to elect a succes
~-..sor. Mr. Booth was very unwell at
the Spartanburg meeting and again at
the meeting in this city.

She had gone about a mile wher

The captain started. He looke<

I'm the best pal that I ever had
I like to be with me,
I like to sit and tell myself
I often sit and ask me
If I shouldn't or I should
And -I find that my advice to me
Is always pretty good.
I never got acquainted with myself
*Till here of late,
And I find myself a bully chum,
I treat me simply great.,
I talk with r and talk with me
And show me right and wrong,
I never knew how well myself
And me could get along.
I never try to cheat me,
I'm truthful as can be,
No matter what may come or go
I'm on 'the square with me.
It's great to know yourself
And have a pal that's all your owr
To be such company for yourself
You're never left alone.
You'll try to dodge the masses
And you'll find a crowd's a joke,
If you only treat yourself
t I've made a study of myself
Compared me with a lot,
And I've finally concluded
I'm the best friend that I've got.
Just get together with yourself,
And trust yourself with vou,
And you'll be surprised how well
Yourself will like vou if you do.
