DR. S. C. BAKER.

Amus-U Theatre, which no doubt will

The address is to be made at the
Amus-U Theatre because through the
.kindness of Mr. Epting, the manager,
Dr. Baker will have the use of his ap
paratus in exhibiting stereopticon
views with which to illustrate his
lecture on the great subject of tuber
culosis, and then, too, there are an
abundance of good, comfortable seats
at this theatre and a great number
can be accommodated.
Perhaps there is no subject at
present which is being agitated asi
is the theme upon which Dr. Baker
expects to talk. In homes of the
cultured and the wealthy as well as
in the homes of the poor and needy
the much dreaded tuberculosis makes
its appearance and sometimes so)
suddenly and unexpectedly does it
se-ize and claim its victims that the
entire community is bewildered and

of office as judge of the seventh cir

seventh circuit while residing in
Newberry. Later he moved to Spar

placed in the 8th circuit he remained
solicitor of the 7th.
At the recent session of the legis

as solicitor, will be read with pleas
ure by Mr. Sease's many friends in
Judge Memming-r, in speaking to
the grand jury at the opening of the
general sessions court, paid a high
compliment to Solicitor Sease and
gave due praise to his splendid rec
ord as solicitor of the seventh judi
cial circuit. His remarks were as
"During the week as you know,
gentlemen, Mr. Solicitor Sease retires
from that office, during the term of
which he has accumulated a store of
honor and has become a power for
law and order in this circuit. As a
fit result and culmination of those
services, he has been chosen to be a
circuit judge; as one among the
twelve of us who in turn are over
t'his state, have given to us by the
people of the state, the power of life
and death and the meting out of that
most serious of all human preroga
tives, criminal punishment, which ci
vilized society must of necessity' for
its own preservation and protection,
lodge somewhere, and seeks to lodge
only in those in whom it can have the
utmost confidence. We feel sure that
in the larger and perthaps more dif
ficult sphere of official administra
tion the people of this county as
well as of the whole state will have
cause to be as proud of Mr. Sease as
judge as they must of necessity have
been of Mr. Sease as solicitor."
"Mr. Otts of Cherokee, will as you.
know, take up the work of 'solicitor
under appointment of our governor
recently made and announced. We
wish and have cause to expect of him
earnest and efficient work. You will
accord him that attention and re
spect to which the high responsibili
ties of his .office entitle him. We
trust and confidently ihope that it
will prove to be' true that in this case
"the mantle of Elijah shall have fal
len upon the shoulders of Elisha.''
The Spartanburg Herald has the
following to say editorially:
"Judge Memminger's tribute to
Solicitor Sease upon the eve of Mr.
Sease's reti.ring from that office to
become circuit judge, is entirely ap
propriate and expressive of the sen
timent of that county' and the entire
sevent~h circuit. Solicitor Sease has
been a "power for law and order''
and his ability as a prosecuting at
torney is thoroughly understood and
respected wherever 'he has appeared
in behalf of the State.

high principle that has charaeterized
his course as solicitor attend him
