NEWS FROM EXCELSIOR.
New and Large School Building to
Replace at Once Building
Which was Burned.
Excelsioi, January 30.-Mr. Ar
thur Lee Wheeler, who is clerking at
Newberry, spent Sunday with his fath
er's family in this section.
Mr. A. M. Counts is building a ten
ant house on the public road.
fr. Ira Nates, of Columbia, spent
Sunday with his father's family, Mr.
A. A. Nates.
Our teacher. Miss Sudie Boulware,
will spend her short vacation with
her father's family.
Our new Sunday school organ is
expected to come in any day.
As was mentioned in Tuesday's
Herald and News. Excelsior school
house was burned down early Monday
morning. Mr. J. D. Stone, who lives
near. was the first to discover the
fire, and when he reached
the building he found the fire
house. Mr. Stone and his son entered
the house and got out the library, th'
teacher's chair and desk, and one
stove. The other contents were con
sumed in the fire. There were Sun
day school. and preaching service by
the Rev. Ira S. Caldwell on Sunday
The building was insured for $300.
The trustees and patrons of the school
called a meeting on Monday night, and
at this meeting it was decided to re
place the house at once, and lumber
will be placed on the ground this
week and work will soon commence.
It is the plan of the trustees and pat
rons to put up a much larger build
ing than the old one, and also to
build the new house facing the public
road. The trustees and 'patrons of
the school return thanks to the
Prosperity graded school for their
kind invitation to use one of their
rooms until they could rebuild, but
this invitation and one or two others
were found too invoneenient for the
smaller children, and at the meet
ing Monday nighit it was decided to
shut down the school until the new
~building could be put up. If th-e
weather is not too rough it is ex
peeted and hoped the new school
house will beC ready for school to re
open at home again in two or three
C0THRAN AND CAREY CLASH.
Disagree Before Supreme Court as
to Interpretation of Law They
It is not alwVays that Messrs. Carey
and Cothran work in perfect unison.
Whild they worked ftogethrer for
mahv moons and evolved the now
celebrateds Carey'-Cothran law, they
dio not agree entirely on the con
struction of their handiwork.
This was demonstrated yesterday
in the discussion of the case of the
state vs. J. R. Small, in the supreme
ceourt. This was a case started orig
inally in the mayor's court- of Eas
iler, where the appellant was indicted
for violation of the Carey-Cothran
law. -He was 4efended by the :firm
of Cothran, Dean & C'thran, of
Greenvillet The case .went against
the defendant and was appealed first
to the Eire'uit eoflit and then to the
supreme court!. iThg town auht'ori
ties employed J. P. Carey, Esq., to
prosecute the case and yesterday at
the bar of the supreme court these
famous legislators strove manfully
to impress their interpretation of
their lm' unon the supreme tribu-I
'nal of the state. Mr. Jpstice Jones
was at once impressed with the pe
.euliarity of the case and] called at
tention to the fact that these authors
were contrary minded, as to tire con
struction of their own law'.
"It is said a house divided against
itself cannot stand.'" promptly re
olied Mr. C-othran. "and I hope it.
won't stand in this case.''
It will ibe interesting to watch the
putcome of this case, just to see
which one of the fathers of this 'bill
will triumph in his interpretations
placed upon it in this case
