Donald White Was Playing With Ri
fie When it Was Discharged,
Hitting Negro Boy.
While Donald White, the young son
of Mr. J. W. White, was playing with
a rifle yesterday morning it was ac
cidentally discharged, the ball strik
ing Frank Hall, a young negro boy,
entering the lower part of the chin
on the left side and lodging in the
neck. It was qt first thought that the
wound woald prove fatal, but medii
cal assistance was called. in immedi
ately, and it was thought yesterday
afternoon that he would recover. The
principal danger, it was stated, arose
from te fact that an.artery was ser
ered. and it was feared for a time
that loss of blood would be so great
that his life could not he saved.
The accident occurred in Mr. J. W.
White's store. The two boys, Don
ald White and Frank Hall went hunt
ing yesterday morning, and had just
returned. They were together in the
store and Donald White was playing
with the rifle. When it was discharg
ed the muzzle was only a very short
distance from the negro boy's head.
Nobody was paying any especial at
tention to the play of the tw6 boys at
the time, but it is supposed that Don
ald White did not know the rifle was
cocked, or thought that it was not
.cocked, and that this mistake on his
part accounts for the accident.
The rifle was a 22-callibre Marlin.
The physicians called in were. Drs.
J. M. Kibler, P. *G. Ellesor, 0. B.
Mayer, W. G. Houseal and W. A.

shot, is a son of Aaron Hall, and is
about sixteen years of age. He was

Arrangements have . been made
whereby the production of Damon
and Pythias, which won suich a great
success ini Columbia on the 19th, will
be presented in Newberry under the
auspices of the local Knights of Py

south, and who will also be seen~ in the
role of Damon, a part he has played
many times. He has also played ii
the play with several of the most~
prominent American stars. Two sea-,

their devotion and love for each other.
The performance was in many re
spects the most brilliant success ever;
achieved by an amateur cast. Every
detail was carefully attended to and
the large audience present showed
its appreciation by frequent applause
and iniany curtain calls weri received.

A DISTINGUISHED -VISITOR.
Professor Malcolm McHardy the
Guest of Relatives in Newberry
Nevherry has a distinguiished visi

Mrs. Geo. S. Mower and Mr. Lambert

MeHardy being a nephew of the late
Mrs. Lambert J. Jones.
Professor McHardy arrived in New

Professor McHardty is the son of
Admiral McHardy. and grandson of
Nelson's famous flag-lieutenant, who
siuersted that the word "expects'"
should be signalled instead of " re
lies.'' He is one of the most widely
known men in London. received with
cordiality in royal circles, welcomed
at clihs where his bolhomie, humour
and transparent unconventionality
are a refreshing novelty upon the ja
ded artificiality of town life, the
friend of half the theatrical world,
from Miss Ellen Terry downwards,
and the handy man of limitless re
source to every distressed creature
who wants his services. So a recent
issue of the Review of Reviews de
serihes Professor Malcolm McHardy,
who is now in this city.
Professor McHardy is today one of
the world's most famous oculists. He
was intended for a mechanical career,
but he disliked it, and when little
more than a child he entered the med
iefil career From the age of seven
teen, when he went to St. George's as
a medical student, he has entirely
supported himself, often filling three
distinct posts at the same time.. Pro
fessor MeHardy in addition to being
a great oculist, is also a good archi

the Royal Eye hospital. He is also
