W. G. Peterson,
Cotton is very backward this year
and while a bale of new cotton has
been sold in Texas the first bloom is
only appearing here. A small boll
which had lost its bloom was brought
to The Herald and News office from
the field of Mr. Lee C. Singley last
Thursday. No doubt there are many
young bolls now but the -crop is late
for the season.
Mr. 0. B. Summer of Shelley and
Summer. says he .has not forgotten
how to farm and especially to grow
cotton. He has placed on the editor's
desk a bloom taken from his field and
he has a good prospect.
Other cotton blooms were placed on
our desk on Saturday from the fields
of Mr. .James P. Davenport of No. 6
township and G. I. Setzler of No. 1.
Also from Mr. E. H. Longshore of
Silver Street and Mr. C. L. Leitzsey
of No. 3.
The crop is small and late but is
in good condition and is growing off
niel since the. rains of last week.
The undersigned will give a first
class barbecue at Jolly Street on
Thursday, August 8. This is a most
delightful place for a 'cue and ev
erybod is invited to come and enjoy

THE TEN HOUR LAW.
Went Into Effect Yesterday-Sixty
two Hours per Week-After Jan
uary Sixty Hours. -
The law that was passed by the last
legislature regulating the hours of la
bor in cotton mills and fixing a day
at ten hours. or sixty hours per week.
went into effect yesterday. though a
provision in the act reduces- the
hours per week to sixty-two until the
tirst of January, when the sixty hour
law becomes operative.
Some time ago the mills themselves
had adopted a resolution reducing the
hours of labor gradually, but under
their resolution the sixty-two hour
rule did not go into offect until next
January and then a year after the
sixty hour rule went into effect. Un
der the act of the general assembly the
sixty hour law, as stated, will go in
to effect the first of January nelt,
and beginning yesterday sixty-tWo
-hours per week is the law. At the
Newberry mills and the Mollohon
mills work will be shut down at 6.10
every day except Saturday, and on
Saturday the mill will close down at
The act pased by the legislature re
gulating the hours says:
"Section 1. Be it enacted by the
general assembly of the State of
South Carolina, That ten hours a day,
or 60 hours a week, shall constitute
the hours for working for all opera
tives and employes in cotton and
woolen manufacturing establishments
engaged in the*manufacture of yar4s,
cloth, hosiery and other products br
merchandise, except mechanics, en
ineers, firemen, watchmen, team
sters, yard employes and cleiical
force. All contracts for longer hours
of work other than herein. provided
in said manufacturing establishments
shall be, and the same are hereby,
declared null and void; and any.per
son entering into or enforcing such
contracts shall be deemed guilty of a
misdemeanor, in each and every
instance, and on conviction in a court
of competent jurisdiction ;hall be fin
ed a sum of money not. less- than $5
nor more than $100, or imprisonment
not, exceeding 30 days: Provided,
That nothing herein contained shall
be construed as forbidding or prevent
ing any such manufacturing company
from making u.p iost time, to the ex
.ent .of 64) hours per annum, where
such lost time has been caused by ae
ident or other unavoidable cause.
"Sec. 2. That the hours of labor
shall remain as they now are until
July 1, 1907. when they shall be re
duced to 62. On the first day of Jan
uary, 1908S, and from and after that

BARBECUE AND FISH FRY.
Pond at Cut Of Near Old Town to be
Drained on Friday-Barbecue to
be Given-Everybody Come.
The Southern Railway began work
on Saturday morning preparatory to
draining the pond at what is known
as the cut-off above Old Town. It will
be recalled that the grand jury of the
county has reported this pond as a
nuisance and dangerous to the health
of the community for several terms.
Some two or three months ago Sup
erintendent Simpson met with the
foreman of the grand jury and the
citizens of the community at the cut
off to see just what was necessary.
The railroad commissioners were also
present at this meeting.
It was agreed that the railroad
would build the necessary trestle in
order to drain the pond, providea
that the citizens of the community
would dig the ditch from the railroad
track tp the, river, so as to carry off
the water after the trestle had been
built by the railroad. The citizens at
once began work and carried out their
pirt of the agreement, digging the
ditch from the railroad track to the
river. The supeirntendent, of course,
had to go through a lot of red tape in
order to get the authority from the
officials and the necessary appropria
tion to do this work. This, of course,
took some time, and the grand jury at
the recent term of court presented
this cut-off again. Superintendent
Simpson of course was doing all that
he eould to carry out his part of the
agreement, and as stated above, work
was commenced on Saturday.
. The pond covers about fifteen acres
*of land, and is of an average depth
of about four feet. It is filled with
water by overflows from the river
and also by a branch, which runs on
the upper edge of the pond, and has
been there since the road was built.
In recent years there has been con
siderable typhoid fever in the com
munity and the citizens have been ad
vised that it was caused probably by
the stagnant water in this pond dur
ing the dry season of the summer.
This year, owing to the rains, the wa
ter, of course, has not become stag
nant, being supplied by the creek and
the rain fall.
9 It is the purpose of the citizens to
~have a fish fry and a barbecue the
day that the s' pond is drained. The
lnd covered by the pond belongs to
ir. John W. Ropp. In order that ev
everybody, who may desire to have
ome of the fish, which are in the
gnd, may have an equal showing, it
*has been decided to form what they
term a joint stock company and Mr.
Leo Hamilton, of Chappells, has
charge of the distribution of the
fish and those who desire to share
in this distribution, may send Mr.
Hamilton $1.00, and all who do so,
may have an equal share of whatever
fish may be taken from the pond, and
this will also entitle them to . the
barbecue dinner. It is estimated by
those who have fished in the pond
that there are from eight to ten
thousand pounds of fish-carp, cat
fish and trout.
Friday, the 5th of July, has been
selected and appointed as the day
upon which the pond will be drain
ed..This date 'has been agreed upon
after conference with 'the railroad
Ipeople by the citizens of the com
Tickets for the fish and barbecue
dinner may be secured from Mr. F. R.
Hunter, at Newberry.
Mi-. John W. Sanders will furnish
a barbecue on Friday at the cut-off.
The 'cue will 'be cooked by Mr. James
Da.nbar, who has the reputation of be
ing one of the finest barbeeue cooks
in the state, and everybody who wants
'not only a godd fish fry, but' a most
exellent barbecue dinner, is invited
to be present.
It is expected that a large number
of people will assemble at.the cut-off
on Friday, the 5th, not only from
Newberry, but from Saluda, Laurens
and Greenwood coun-ties. The plan of
eontributing $1.00 by those who desire
a share of the fish has been agreed
upon so that there may be no con
fusion or misunderstanding. Of course
if those who contribute desire to do
so a lafge portion of the fish may be
sold and they will be participants in
