THE CIVIC ASSOCIATION.
An Interesting Meeting, Attended by
City Officials and Citizens-Wag
on Yard Proposition.
The special meeting -of the Civic
assOciation. which was called for Fri
I day afternoon, at 4.30 o'clock, in the
rooms of the chamber of commerce,
was largely attended and it proved to
be perhaps the most enthusiastic and
interesting meeting in the history of
the association, and alt any rate the
most far reaching -in the actual re
salts accomplished toward the desir
ed end of beautifying and making
clean and atbractive the streets .and
public square of the .city of New
Mrs. L. W. Floyd, the newly elect
ed president of the association, pre
sided at this meeting, and under her
wise, gracious, and tactful manage
ment of the questions and discussions
which cama before the meeting, some
important decisions were arrived at,
and much light was thrown on many
points that heretofore had not been
so thoroughly understood.
The entire -eity council was present,
except the mayor and oue alderman;
th,a health officer; the board of health
except one member; the president of
tihe chamber of commerce; .the editors
of both the papers; and several mem
bers of the dhamber of commerce, be
sides other interested citizens, and a
large number of th members of the
Mrs. Floyd stated that the purpose
of the meeting was for discussing
things in general for the good of the
.town, but that the prime object of
this special meeting -was to take steps
towards procuring a wagon y:vrd. A
lot of discussion pro and con was had
about this wagon yard. and Mr. T. C.
Pool offered to rent the Civic associa
tion an acre and a half of ground
for $75.00 a. year for this purpose.
The members of the Civie .association
propose to aecept this offer and pay
the rent, provided the city council
will pass an ordinance prohibiting the
standing of teams on the public
square. No definite action could be
taken, however. before the decis-ion of
.tie council is arrived at.
The ex-city attorney, Dr. Cromer,
being present. a number of questions
were asked -him concerning- the ordi
na.nces of the town, and it was found
that tihere is a fine for spitting on the
streets, and also for sweeping trash
from either residences or stores into
the streets. Alderman Baxter me
quested .that the members of t'he Civic
association report to .the poliee forcee
an.y violations of the trash ordinance.
A rising rote was called for on this,!
a'nd the mnembers of thie Civic asso
eiation pledged themselves to report
Another matt.er wh.:ich came in for
a good share of discussion was the.
trees of .the city, and particular at
tention was called to tihe large num
ber of beautitful -trees t:hat had died
in Cal'ho-un street, and sooner or lat
er :the t'rees in College st-reet will meet
the same fate, as well as t.rees in oth
er portions of the city. It is absolute
ly necessary, if these beautiful shade
trees a,re to be preserved for years to
come, that the city ta.ke some steps to
wards the protection of the roots of
these trees. Taking Anderson for an
example. -the best thing to do seems to
h.e to lay uniderground drainage or
fill in the ditches on either side of the
streets 'so that.the r'cets of these tuees
t'vl! b'e no longer esposed.
A.nother interesting feature of the
mbeting was the -exhibition of a draw
hv Mrs. E. M. Evans of the hand
e art that is used in Anderson to a-id
in keeping the streets clean, and there
'is no doubt but that the Civic asso
ciation will purchase one of these
carts if the city council will see that
it is used.
SIn case the couneil does pass an or
dinance requiring wagons 'to stop at
Itehe *wagon yard or, a>t any ra-te, to
keep off t'he publie square, the Civic
league will at once take steps to
Swards parking t e ibpclhuAIN....
wards 'parking the public squa.re and
makinng it a beautiful place, restful
-and attractive, and when once estab
I li.he.d it will be the pride of .the city
and will afford r&t and pleasure to
. u. of anything of' this kind.
Words are inadequate to express
our sincere and heartfelt thianks to
our neighbors. friends, our pastor and
Iespecially to Dr. A. J1. Bowers, for
the many acts of kindness, considera
tion and devotion bestowed upon our
-dear husband and father during his,
l ast hours and upon us.
May God's choicest blessings rest1
Iupon vou is our earnest prayer.

Sermon By Dr. Jno. S. Cook, Recent
ly Placed in Charge of Universal
ist Churches in This State.
Rev. Dr. Jno. S. Cook. rceently
placed in charge of the Universalist
churches in South Carolina, who ia4
selected Neyberry as his plac.e of
residenee, conducted services in thE
new court house on .Sunday after
noon. A large congregation was pres
Dr. Cook is an eloquent speaker, a
very attractive palpit orator, and his
ermon was enjoyed by those fortun
ate enough to have the opportunity
to hear him. He presented for .t'hf
consideration of his lhearers a state
ment of itha declarations of faith of
the Universalist .chureh. This state
ment corrected in many respects the
faIse views commonly held as to thE
faith of Universalists. One of the
statements of the speaker was this:
"If any of you come here, expeeting
to find in the -doetrine of religion as
taught by the Universalists some way
to escape punishment for the sins you
have committed, or may commit, you
will. be disappoi-nted. We believe ir
punismment for sin, that the punisb
ment is certain and sure and suffi
The minister remarked that hi:
churc.h believed in th,e final Tia.rmon.
of all souls with God, but that thi.
salvation only came after the sinful
soul had been made pure by the pun
ishment meted out .to it by a jusi
God. "The Universalists believe nol
only in a. - just God, but a God ol
love and mercy, and that His merc
endureth forever.' said Dr. Cook.
Dr. Cok will speak again in th(
same place on Sunday, January 24
at 3 p. in. Doubtless a large nuMbei
will attand the service, for the ser
mons of the minister are enrtertaining
and instructive. There are only f
few U-niversalists in Newberry, bu
those tthat are here are earnest ir
their religious belief. Dr. Cook ma.d*
it very plain that he came not to at.
tack other churches, that he came noi
to make Universalists, but that hi
prime purpose is to make men ani
women better, and he wvelcomes t<
his services all denominations.
Serious Cutting Affray.
A serious cutting affray betweer
two negro women oceurred in thi
public road between Newberry and
Lindsay 's bridge ove,r Bush river a1
a late hour on Saturday night. Th<
oarties 'were Ida Lindsay and Emmne
Davis. It .appears 'the Lindsay wo
man and her -husband had separated
and it was about chim the two womer
were f'ussinz. The fuss started in a
house on Mr. G. M. B. Epting's plae
and it is said that after .somne wordt
had passed the Lindsay woman start
ed to town. and was overtaken in the
road by the Davis woma.n and Jin
Lindsay, the former husband of th4
Lindsay woman, who pursued her ir
a hack, and it 'was there in the road
about two miles from town, that the
cutting occurred. It appears th.er4
was only one knife, -which was usei
first by the Davis woman and after
wards seeured and used by the Li-nd
say woma. both being cut. Thi
Lindsay woman had several gashes ir
the back of her baad and neck, ani
her left cheek was 'split open from hei
ear' to the front of her face, and bei
thmb on the igiht hand was almosi
severed from the~ hand. The ot=he1
woman w~as cut in the breast, hut bei
wouids were not so serious. It i'
stated tha.t duri:ng the affair the negr<
ran drew his pistol and dared any
body 'to seperate the 'women, an<
some say that he struck the Lindsaa
woman with a stick.
Following the affair the womer
came, to town andL th'e Lindsay womar
was given attention by Dr. Houseal
who took a number of stitches aboui
Policeman Franklin immediatel.a
investiga'ted the affair, but it having
occurred outside the city ilimits. thi

It was ascertained that at the be- C
ginnhing of this year the policy hold
ers had in the company $418,000, and GB
there was a balance in the treasury
of $180.00. Thre association ordered 'PI
an assesment of 20 cents on the hin- 1-1
dred dollars .to be .taken February 13,
running thirty days, to Marc~h 15. HI]
The growt:h of the association has d
be-en improved 'during the past year.
The losses have been light. The asso- G'.
ecition 'has been irunning at an ex-h
pense of one-fifth of one per cent., e
(20 cen.ts on the hundred dollars).
IEvery farmer in t'he e&un'ty should GR
carry some imnsrance in the Farmers'
M'utual. When a neidihbor 'sus'tains GE

we carry insurance then we help, and e
are protected at the same time. The ~
