;t What the affair was all about it
was impossible to learn yesterday af
ternoon, as no statement could be se
cured from ,1e parties. It appeared
I.. that Tom Sanders had paid Daven
t port twenty-nine dollars for some
2 hogs, claiming,them to be of a certain
d weight, when in fact th-ey weighed
less. A warrant was sworn out and
r. Devenport was arrested by Mr. James
ts Henderson, acting as deputy, in the
,V absence of Constable Cannon G.
k Blease. The negro was carried to
t Magistrate Chappell's office, and
here the difficulty started.
5 A pistol shot was heard, and as
. there was only one shot, and the ne
) gro was the only one who was wound
t. ed, it would not take a Sherlock Hol
t. mes to figure out that this was the
11 shot which went through the negro's

e The Herald states that Chester
r (claimus a tun. that weighs seven and
a a half pounds and that Lancaster
y strains a point and produces a turnip
that weighs eight pounds. Then
-comes the Winnsboro News and Her
e aid and claims a nine and a half
a pound turnip for Fairfield. The
r Herald now says that old York raises

s familiar with the size of turnips rais
ed in Newberry county but would re- 1
fer all of these boasters as to big .tur

the progressive town of Woodi-uff a
turnip was on exhibition t.hat weigh- I

NEW COURT HOUSE.
Members Civic Association Get Per-,I
mission to Stretch Wires
Last Friday meml.rs of the Civic
Association held a conference with
Supervisor Feagle with reference to a
grounds tit the new court house. The t
wagon yard has to some extent been r
enlarged since the building of .the new a
court house and the grounds have Jj
been used for hitching and feeding, t
purposes. T.he trees have been used t
as hitching posts as is evidenced by t
the bark being eaten off by the mules. 1
Plans for improving the grounds f
had been agreed upon but owing to
the heavy rains of last summer and I
the necessity for rebuilding bridges n
the work was never done and is not r
done yet, and the wagons have been 1
driving in on them and using -the t
grounds as a hitching and feeding
Members of the Civic Association
as stated obtained permission on Fri- e
day to put up some wire to keep t.he
wagons off and early Saturday morn

and now the wagons are excluded at

There is a driveway between the
ounty lot and the Crotwell hotel
eight feet wide which belons(s to Mr.

will give this for a walk way or boule
trd as far as his land goes and1 Mr.
J. D. Davenport says he will do the
same for the balance of the distance e
to Thompson street. if the city will
make a cement walk. This is in ac
.ordanee with a sngges-tion made by i
The Herald and News some months i
ago when the opening of a wagon way
through this lot was being consi'dered. t
rity council should take this proposi
tion up and accept it at once. In fact
the county might divde t-he cost be- e
-anse it would add materially to the a

rrom driving on it and would improve
the appearance and be a great con
renience. The land in the rear of the
tores of Shelly and Summer and the t
>bhers in that block could be utilized a
or office buildings and would be ideal.
