as the troops advanced. They took a
strong position between the North
Canadian river and Deep Fork creek,
about seven miles east of Henrietta.
Col. Hoffman, in command of the
State troops, decided it would be un
wise to push the pursuit and engage

the noble work.
% If the funds raised in different
parts of the county were all -put to
gether and Newberry given credit for
these contributions this county would
be in the top list of contributors.
The Nenvberry college has already
sent in $30.00 -and the citizens of
Chappells have forwarded $12.00, and
Col. 0. L. Sohumpert from the James
D. Nance caipp ihas on hand $65.00,
and the committee as stated above
has something over $100. These
arounts added together make over
$200 for Newberry. It will only take
an average of about $200 from 'each
county to -raise the necessary amount
'to seure the monument. But some
of the counties may not reach that
amount and it is important that some
shall exceed it.
The following -is the list which is
being circulated by the committee,

RACED AGAINST DEATH.
'New York Banker Tried to Reach
Chicago Before His Mother
Chicago, March 28.-Frank L. Van
derlip, president of the National City
Bank, of New York, broke all Ameni
can railroad records, aeeowding to
statements made by New York Cen
tral officials today, in an effort to
reach the bedised of his dying mother
here, :bat he lost the race with death
by exactly 28 minutes.
M. Vanderlip, in a special train,
covered -the distance from New York
to Englewood, a suburb of tbis city, in
1.5 hours and 5 minutes, and when he
leaped madly from the train he was
met with the announcement that his
mother, Mrs. Charlotte L. _V"nderlip,
'had died at 2.30.
Big Man Almost Collapsed.
The strain of the past day almost
caused the big man to collapse. Short
ly before midnight last night Mr.
Vanderlip received word from Ohica
-o .that his mother was near death.
He immediately ordered the New
York Central to supply him with the
fastest special train at its command.
The notice was short, but the com
pany had a train ready to leave New
York at midnight. The train consist
ed of four coaches and the most pow
erful engine which could be secured in
that short time. The train crew were
the on[y persons earried besides Mr.
Vanderlip, but it was necessary to
add the three extra coaches to give
the train the iproper weight for main
taining such a :high speed.
Mr. Vanderlip's train was given the
right-of-way over everything on the
line. The road officials expeeted to
make the distance in 18 hours,- but
such a performance as was accom
plished was beyond their wildest
The special left New York at mid
nigiht, and the wild! race with death
was on. The -rnn from New York to
Buffalo-44 miles-O was covered in
399 minutes, which included a three
minute stou pfor a change of engines.
The time of arrival at Buffalo was
6.39 a. m. This was a wonderful per
formance, but Mr.V naderlip was cry
ing 'for more speed. He had received
discouraging word from the bedside
ow his mother, and was nearly frantic.
Over Mile a Minute.
The run from Buffalo to Cleveland
-183 miles-was covered in 168 min
ntes. - The engineer threw the throttle
wide open, and the miles slipped by
at a dizzy pa.ee. Leaving Cleveland at
9:27. the special arrixed at Toledo a:t
11:23 a. in., covering 108 miles in 116
minutes. rThis was the slowest stage
of the mad dash across the country.
Elkhart, Ind., was reached at 1.23 p.
in., making 133 miles in 120 minutes.
Endlewood was reached at 2 :58-the
last 95 mil'es being eaten up in 92
minutes. Mr. Vanderlip left the train
at Englewood, which was the nearest
station~ to hits mother's home. The
train crntinued on to the central sta
tion ,and arrived there at 3:07, mak
ii"e tot al time 15 hours and 14 minutes
