It will be recalled that Mrs. Ox

by failure of the Western Union to
deliver lo her father, Mr. Geo. W.
Pearson. in Newberrv, a telegram
which sae had forwarded from Whit
mire in the day after the hiQ fire
here. asking'. "Are yo-. .afe?'' Mrs.
Oxner's t.wo children were at that
time in Newberry with tieir grand
pareo ts, Mr. and Mrs. Pearson.
Jude Gary withdrew the question
of mental anquish from the juury,
holding that the telegraph company
had not been put on notice that Mr.
Oxner desired to hear from her par
ents and children on account of the
fact that there had been a disastrous
fire here. He submitted to the jury,
however, the question of actual dam
ages for breach of contract, and the
question of punitive damages for
wilfulness, and the jury returned a
verdict for $510. Messrs. Hunt, Hunt
and Hunter gave notice of motion for
new trial and Messrs. Blease and
Dominick. for the plaintiff, agreed to
take up the motii before Jidge
Gary in Columbia.
At the hearing on Tuesday Mr.
Fred H. Dominick appeared for the
plaintiff and Mr. James B. Hunter
for the defendant.

Gary refusing the motion for a new

the reason that the evidence shows
tha:t plaintiff delivered to the defend
ant .company for transmission a mes

therefor, which message -was in writ

for transmission and delivery. The
.evidence further shows that the mnes

to the extent of the amount paid for
