woman about sixty years of
age, who lived just beyond Mr.

| FEARED DOG WAS MAD , .
Mr. Ttios. J Wilson Has Experience With W
Pet Pice Belonging to Bis Little
Mr. Ihos. J. Wilson, of the
Bachnian Chapel section of the si
county, has had a trying experience fr
during the past several days with in
ar dog which it is feared was mad. tli
A pet fice belonging to Thelma, fc
Mr. Wilson's little daughter, about
ten years of age, went off to the w
field on last Saturday morning, and tli
was not seen any more until Sun- el
day afternoon. The dog came in tli
[Sunday afternoon panting and w
seeming to be worried. The little L
girl offered it meat and bread, but cc
the dog refused to eat. Thelma
played with the dog, however, and |,.
it licked her in the face and in s:'(
. . cr
At supper time 011 Sunday even- fi\
ing the dog was in Mr. Wilson's w;
dining room, and during the meal w
it attacked a cat, and in the fight ha
the cat was bitten. Mr. Wilson cr
thought then that something was re
wrong, and in view of the many V;i
mad clogs which have been report- tli
ed in Newberry county during the
past several weeks, he began to jn
fear that possibly the dog was mad. Q'
I Ie confined the dog in a stall in his ^
lot. Before daylight on Mondav cr
morning the dog escaped and U]
went over to Mrs. Jennie Epps', a y|
neighbor of Mr. Wilson. At about sj|
4 o'clock on Monday morning Mr. j|1
\\ ilson received a telephone mes- ,U1
sage from Mrs. Epps' rcsience '
that the dog was there and that it j10
had bitten a pig in the yard. Mr.
Wilson was then satisfied that it
was mad, and lie immediately notified
as many of his neighbors as ,
lie could reach. Metween 9 and io
o'clock Monday morning the dog ^
came home and killed a couple of 0
small chickens in Mr. Wilson's an
yard and bit a hen. Later the clog SO
was killed near Mr. Wilson's honu
bv Messrs. George 1. Kinard and ne
R. N. Taylor.
On Sunday afternoon the dog jt
licked Mr. Wilson's hand. Mr.
Wilson had a little sore on his hand. ou
where the skin was broken, but lie Qf
is in hopes that the clog did not ot|
touch that particular spot on his tn
Neither Mr. Wilson nor the phy- ^
sicians whom he lias consulted
think that he or his little girl is in f
any danger, but he has taken all . .
precautions, and will act upon the 'f.
advice of his physicians. He has !"
not only killed tiie cat which, was 50
bitten, but all the other cats on his
place. And not only has Mr. Wilson cin.
taken precautions, but he has put ai
his neighbors in possession of all
the facts so that they also may take p.C
all necessary precautions. ,1

DR. CROMER AT MURCHISON
Delivers Annual Commencement Address
Before the School at Bennettsvllle.
Dr. (ieorge I?. Cromer this weekdelivered
the annual address on the
occasion of the commencement ex-1
ercises of the Mnrchison school, at
Uennettsville. The Uennettsville!
correspondent of the Columbia
State says of Dr. Cromer's ad-!
lhe lion. J. L. MeLaurin then!
introduced as the annual orator j
Dr. (ieorge P>. Cromer. There has
never been heard here a more earnest
or more liked commencement
address. Dr. Cromer is a very
pleasing speaker and when listening
to hint one is surprised at the
passage of time for the charm of j
the speaker's voice and the elYee- j
live and easy delivey of the subject !
is that of a master. Dr. Cromer j
took as his subject the "Ideal of!
Power Which lias Taken j
I 1 "'Id on Our People To-1
d-v." This, he said, might be di-j
v: "ed into thtve heads, the pocket j
power, the head power and the re-1
liigous power or the heart power. I
Dr. Cromer went 011 to show the
great desire for money, which people
today have because money is
power. Then education gives head
power and education means money.
Then education gives head
power, develops the intellect. He
said that in our schools today were
being moulded the future leaders
and the destiny of the land was being
shaped there also, fie warned
against getting the love of money
without the third essential, the power
of the heart. Tie referred to
Greece with its g>ca: intellect, to
Rome with its great wealth and
how both of these passed because
there was no religion. Then arose
the ideal incarnated in human form
passing up and down the ways ot
Palestine. The religion of tlie lowly
Nazarene swept the Roman empire
and ascended the throne of Caesars
and is today sweeping the whole
world. This, said Dr. Cromer,
should be taught, as it is, in our 1
schools and colleges and should
stand out and above everything

THB KNIGHTS OF PYTHIAS

The grand lodge Knights o
Pythias of South Carolina held it

Grand Chancellor George S. Mow

Blease and John K. Aull, delegate
from O'Neall lodge, No. 154; Mr
J. S. Werts, delegate from Oh
Town lodge, No. 168.
Ti.e matters of principal iuteres
transacted by the grand lodge weri
the election of officers, action looking
towards a suitable memorial t<
the laie Dr. James 11. Thornwell
and the decision to continue an<
make permanent the South Carolin:
The 1" >1 lowing officers were elect
ed tor the ensuing year:
Grand chancellor, L. S. Matti

tyn reard to the memorial tc
Dr. James 11. Thornwell, the lat<
lamented grand keeper of records
and seal, a committee of five wa?
appointed to raise a memorial fund
the final disposition of which fune
shal. be made by the grand lodge a'
its next annual convention. The
sentiment of the grand lodge seemed
to be strongly in favor of usin^
trie funds in some manner to be decided
upon for the benefit of the
orphan children of Pythi.ans
though the sentiment was dividet
as to the exact method to be pursued.
1 his will be taken up anc
decided by the next grand lodge.
The report of the committee or
publication bavin,g in charge tin
South Carolina Pythian, was adopted,
and the grand lodge decided f.
continue the paper. The committee
on publication other than Mr. E. 11
Aull. the managing editor, commended
Mr. Anil's work in connection
with the paper, and recommended
that he be paid an increase
salary during the coming year. This
recommendation was adopted.
Charleston was selected as the
place of next meeting.
The grand lodge was delightfully
entertained by the people of Aiken.
and every one who attended lefi
with rtnly the most pleasant recollections
of his stay among a hospitable
Farmers' Institute for Newberry.
It is probable that arrangementconk!
be made to have a farmers
institute i.. Newberry during the;
roiling summer undo'* the auspices
"I the authorities at Clenison ce>ilegf\
We understand that the policy oi
the college for the present will be
not to hold a general farmers' institute
at Clenison but to have in
stitutcs in different sections of the
State having a day or two at whicli
several counties may meet.
It is entirely probable that one
of these institutes could be sccuree
for Newberry and if the president
of the chamber of commerce or the
secretary would get in communication
with the director of the experiment
station at Clenison, Prof
J. N. Harper, one of these institutes
might be held here.
As we understand it the purpose
of the director of the experiment
station in' holding these institutes
will be to secure the most eminent
and best equipped men in the var
ions departments to give lecture?
to farmers. By holding these in
stitutcs in different sections of the
State more people will be enablee
to take advantage of the information
to be obtained at them thai
could possibly be given with the
general institute for the State ai
While these State institutes have
been as a rule well attended a great
many more people could be rcachce
bv scattering them over the State
for it is not always convenient foi
a great many of our farmers to at
ten'd the institutes at Clenison, not
only on account of the expense but
nn account of being unable to leave
