$25000 FOR NEWBERRY COLLEGE
The Information Comes By Way of
Columbia-Dr. Pearson of Chi
cago the Donor.
It seems that the president (f New
herry college has decided to ignore
entirely the local press and especial
ly the local representatives of the two
leading daily papers of the state, the
News and Courier and the State. We
find in the State of yesterday the fol
lowing telegram dated at Newberry,
but which was not sent by the repre
sentative of that paper at this place.
We note also that this same item of
news was sent to the News and Cou
rier from Columbia, which is addi
tional evidence that the president of
the college deliberately intended to
ignore the local representative of the
News and Courier. Of course if that
is his purpose, it will not offend ei
ther one of the representatives of the
two daily papers in question, and we
assure him, will not offend The Her
ald and News. We understand that
he desires to be his own press agent
as to baseball news also. If he thinks
that it will benefit the college to run
a close corporation on news at his
institution, we shall not complain and
we only mention this so that our
friends in Newberry may know the
reason in case we do not send from
Newberry college, on the usual terms.

by Colonel W. T. Gentry having been
separated. The rapid growth and de

necessary to enlarge the organization
an( Colonel Gentry's recommendation
that a general manager be elected was
acted upon favorably last week by
the board of directors and Mr. Brown
was selected as general manager. The
change is effective April 10 and offi

Colonel Gentry April 9.
Colonel Gentry will remain in di

but will devote his time largely to the
executive duties of vice president,
which have increased during the past
few years. He will be the personal
representative of the president in all
aatters of policy. The growth of the
Southern Bell Telephone and Tele
xraph during the next five years is
expected to be greater than during
my similar period. The consequent

Vhile in Americus he attracted the

then Colonel Gentry was made gen

bility that he was soon made special

THE WELL FINISHED.
The New Well at Power House Gives
;'ld Well Increased Efficiency
of '2.800 Gallons Per Day.

pIwer h IE has b'eI i vompIla1)i . The
W?i is:02 feet deep. I the ld well
the vein was struck at a depth of 150
feet. in the new welI, the irst vein
struck was at a depth of 159 feet. and
this is probably the same vein as in
the 4ld well. The second vein in the
new well was struck at a depth of 270
feet. The capacity of the old well
was 200.000 gallons in 24 hours be
fore the diggin- of the new well.
The ld! well was tested agzain on
Friday and showed an increased effi
eieney of 62.800 -allons per -day.
This is <hte to the fact that the see
1nd vein strutk in the new well also
supplies the old well throtuiI the vein
which passes through both wells.
The two wells have not yet been
tested together. and therefore, it can
not be stated what the additional sup
ply of water will be by the digging
of the new well, but even if there
should be nothing more than the in
creased efficiency of the old well, as
shown by the test on Friday. it would
be a great advantage, and give a suffi
cient supply of water for all present
Holy Week Services.
Services will be held in the Luther

Friday morninz at 11 o'clock. Come
