* The service for men at the building

Will Hold Annual Meeting Tonight
Election of Officers-Other Mat

The chamber of commerce will meet
tonight. Tuesday, at eight o'clock in
the rooms of the chamber of com
The regular meeting was to have
been held about ten days ago but in
order to avoid a conflict with other
meetings it was postponed until last
Friday night. Instead of avoiding
any other conventions, however, it
seems that there were more meetings
scheduled for last Friday than any
other night in a long while, and,
therefore, there was only a small at
tendance at the meeting called for the
chamber of commerce.
This being -the annual meeting and
the time for the election of officers it
is very much desired that every mem
bei- of the body shal1 be present.
In addition to the election of offi
cers there are several matters pertain

activity of t.he chamber of commerce
which need attention.
The prospect of securing the C., C.
& 0. railroad via Newberry was talk

evening by those members who were
present and it is desired to take up
that question among others at the
Every member of the body should
be present tonight and those who are
not members should become members
before tonight so that they may also
have a part in the election of officers,
an-d the other matters pertaining to
the welfare of this community.
We need here more than anything
else concert of action on the part oi

EPIDEMIC OF MEASLES.
Eleven Students at Newberry College
Have Disease-Every Precau
tion Being Taken.
An epidemic of measles broke out
last week in the college. Several of
the young men who had reason to be
lieve that they were succumbing to
the disease took their departure for
home on Saturday and Sunday. There
are at present eleven well-developed
eases among the students and as many
more are likely to take their beds at
any time. The epidemie comes at a
most inopportune -time for the young
men as this was the week appointed
for the second-term examinations. The
examinations have been continued and
private examinations will be arranged
for later by the professors for those
who were siek.
An infirmary has been established
on the campus, and all the men af
fected have been -removed to it from
their rooms. President Harms has
had tihe large, airy "Prep. Room" in
Smeltzer Hall neatly whitewashed and
cleansed. Th-e woodwork and floors
have been thoroughly cleansed and
the room made fit for hospital care
and attention. He will leave nothing
undone to care for the boys who are
sick and all will get the kindest at
tention and treatment. A nurse will
be in charge of the infirmary day and
night. The -college is acting consistent
ly with the advice of the board of
health and the physicians in charge. It
is hoped to prevent further spread of
the disease by -carefully observing all
sanitary and medical laws.
The young men of the college ar?
acting in a most commendable man
ner. The whole student body is in
hearty accord with President Harms
and jhe Taity in arranging -he
life of the college in the crisis. Those
who have been taken with the dis
ease are showing the finest spirit in
submitting to all the a--r:angeients
that have been made.
The room-mates 'of 4'e men who
have the neases have be-.i quaran
tined and confined for the present to
the campus. By the ac' ve coopfra
tion of atudents and fa,? w it is
hoped that no serious resu':s will ell
sue from the epidemic.

Newberrian is Playing Fine Ball In
Virginia, as He Did While at
A Charlotte-ville dispatch to thle
Richmond Times-Dispatch gives an
acount of a base ball game between
the University of Virginia and Wil
liam and Mary, in which Harvey
Cabaniss, of Newberry, -who played
star ball on the Newberry college
team while he was at college, here,
was the star player for Virginia. The
dispatch is as follows:
Chairlottesville, Va., March 25.
On a muddy diamond, and with the
wind blowing a gale, Virginia, defeat
ed William and Mary college today 13
-to 0. The cold kept down the attend
ance, less -than 200 being present.
With the exception of the third i
ning, the contest was a very clean
one. In that period the Williamsburg
players went to pieces, Virginia scor
ing ;a total of eleven runs on three
hits' With tihe 'bases full, Allison al
lowed Cabaniss's hot liner to get
away from him, two scoring on the
error. More errors followed., which
had a 'bad effect on the visiting twirl
er, Lewis, who be-came unsteady and
liberal with ;his passes.
Whitmer was in the box for Vir
inia. and showed that he is a cold
weather viitcher. He allowed but
tihree hits, and did not issue a single
pass. With the wind at his back his
spitball proved very effective.
.Cabaniss, -the star batsman on last
year's varsity team, who has been
kept out of the game on account of a
sprained ankle, made his initial ap
pearance at his old position in right
field. He got -the only extra base hit
of the game and created much en
-thusiasm in the sixth inning by steal
ing 'home while the opposing twirler
was winding up. He showed that he
has a strong arm by throwing John
son out at first in the fonrth inninz.
robbing the Williamsburg third base
man of an apparently safe hit.
Captain Hoff, who led in the bat
ting, gave way in the sixth inning to
Piekford, the Washington boy. Pear
son again put. up a star game at back
s:op. Blskey and Fitchett fielded
shrply despite the rough diamond.
Dalbney showed improvement in his
work at first base. Driver and Lewis
got the on1y clean hits made by the

Thirty ye-a.rs ago the .person wh
boughit a refrigerator was supposed
to be a man well off in this world, but
now how different. people of all clas

have a refrigeraetor n-ow, and also t:bat
they must have a dry air refigerator,
none of those old sweat boxes of thir
ty years ago -for them, for they then
had nothing but boxes. Next was in
troduced the sideboard refrigerator
with -water tank and even this was
not a refrigerator, it was only a side-.
board with a water cellar and sweat
box inside. No one k-new then t-hat

the 'best and up-to-date ref-frigerators
are positively dry air, whier-e you can

only so, but a good -dry air ref rigera
