POPE PROPERTY SELECTED.
The Trustees of the Graded Sch<
Purchase Pope Property for $12.
500 Including Pope Residence.
The board of trustees of the Ne
berry graded school in connecti
with the citizens' advisory commit
at a meeting held on Tuesday aft
noon closed a trade for the Y. J. Pc
property at $12,500 for two and thr
fourth acres including the residene
The portion selected fronts
'Speers street, directly in front of t
end of Caldwell street, 230 feet.
A new street has been opened
the east side of this property 50 fo
wide and the lot fronts on that str<
485 feet. In the rear of the lot i
other new street. is opened 50 ft
wide, and on the west side of the :
another street 50 feet wide is opent
making the lot entirely surrounded
good broad streets.
The depth on the wst "side is 4
feet. On the north side the lot me,
ures 273 and from the new street
this side another new street 50 f
wide has been opened, leading ir
Chapman street. Another new str(
50 feet wide is opened from Colle
street, also, directly in front of t
Pope residence running along the si
of the lot on which Mr. F. H. Don
nick is now building.
Measuring from Speers street t
distance to the Pope residence is 3
feet which gives ample room to bui
the new graded school building, fror
ing on Speers street and on the i
street on the east side of the lot.
No action has yet been taken 1
the trustees in the adoption of t
plans and specifications for the i
modeling of the Pope residence
for the location of the new buildir
It is probable, 1however, that the Po
residence will be remodeled and equi
ed for use by the high school depai
nent and that the graded school pro
er will be in the new building to
erected, and in connection with t'
1ew building will be the auditoriu
which can be used by both the hi,
echool and the graded school pupils.
The Pope residence, we understan
has about 16 rooms and the found
ion walls are of granite about thr
feet in thickness and much more su
stantially built than would be erect'
f it were put up at this time.
Altogether this selection by t

Miss Tilla Montgomery, daughters of
Rev. James Montgomery, pastor of

at thi time of his daughter's mar
1 .riage. This union continued for 47
- years or until October. 1903, six yea,rs
- ago, when death -took his beloved wife
from him. So great was his devotion
L to his wi'fe that he could not speak

L Mr. Boozer was a true man in ev
ery sense. He was faithful to every
call of duty. When the war between!
the States broke out he espoused
the cause of the Confederacy and was
a member of the 13th South Carolina
regiment, and was in active service
for six months when ill health forced
him to retire from the army. He was:
honorably discharged and given dui
ties at home. While in the active ser
vice only six months he served the in
-terest through the entire war.
After the war -he entered the hard
ware business and continued in it for
years, being always one of the town's
most progressive citizens. Again ill;
health interfered and he was compell
ed to take lighter work. He then took
up fire insurance and engaged in this
business until a few moriths ago when
frail health and infirmitis of years!
were tihe cause of his retirement from!
business. Apart- from hi.s illness
which ended 'n his death he passed
the last few months of his life in rest
He was an upright and patriotic
citizen, a true and -devoted 'husband,
a tender and affectionate father, a
kind and loyal friend, and above all:
a zealous .and consecrated Christian.
He joined the Smyrna Presbyterian;
church in his boyhood and was faith
ful in the service of his Master ever,
afterwards. He was made an elder in
the chureh at this place in 1867, and
was active and zealous in this offiee
until his death, serving this church
well as an elder for 42 years.
In the last few days of his illness.
he -suffered much and knew that the
end was near and rejoiced in that~
fact. He prayed that God would give
him rest and his prayer was answer
ed. His end was peaceful and he
quietly fell asleep.
The funeral service was lheld yes
terday morning at the Presbyterian
church at 10 o'clock, conducted by his
pastor, Rev. J. E. James. Burial was

CIVIC LEAGUE VISITS CLINTON J
Ladies Report a Nice Day and Pleas- (
ant Reception-New Impetus e
For Work Here.
Through the courtesy of Mr. W.
G. Childs, president of the C., N. & z
L. railroad. the eivie league. of New- t
berry, was given a trip to Clinton. X
The league's first object in accept- a
ing this very kind and appreciated I
offer of Mr. Childs was to see the r
handsome new depot which he has t
erected at that place, and the grounds c
of which he has so beautified with the 'e
assistance of -the civic league. h
One of the party in speaking of the c
trip, said: e
"The Newberry delegation was met t
at the station by a delegation from i.
the Clinton league, whose guests they v
were during the day. After reaching a
the station grounds the Newberry la
dies stopped first to admire the grav- a
elled walks and beds - of grass and -t
palms. It is ind-eed a model depot a
for any place. After an inspection of J;
these grounds the party was given a c
drive over the modern and progres- (
sive little city. The first thing to at- t
tract the attention and call forth ad- I
miration were the numerous and c
handsome slgade trees. It is scarcely t
worth while to state in this connee- t
tion, but some may not be aware of it, U
that it is essentially a part of the v
work of the civic league to preserve
these trees, regardless even of the
wires. This spirit seems to be grow
ing for on this trip was seen farmers
planting cotton in a field in the midst
of which stood three beautiful water
"The Thornwell Memorial, which
is synonymous with the name of Clin
ton, was the next place visited. A
description of this grand institution C
would fill volumes, standing as it does i
as a monument to the name of one
whom it is a delight to honor and the -
way and manner in which it is kept;
up is truly a tribute to the ability and
energy of those who have it in charge.
"The next place visited was the
Presbyterian college with its two new
and handsome modern buildings, then
the $20,000 stone Presbyterian church
which has just been completed.
"Both of these will be lasting me- '
morials to the present generation, and
the style of arehitecture and the
beauty of the Iplace impress one very
emch. The well kept cemetery with
the keepers' house near by was also
"The Newberry delegation here
jus-t had to stop and draw-a number'
'f comparisons. Why is it not pos
sible for Newberrny to have a keeper
for the cemetery here, and employ
a keeper for the year and let it be
nderstood that it is his duty at all
times to keep the cemetery free'
from weeds and change any neglected
spots into well kept places?
"There are a nmber of handsom-e
homes, some quite recently built,
which are surrounded by neatly kept '
"The ladies were told that the
Stephen D. Lee chapter has a nice*
sum of money on hand towards the I
retion of a Confederate monument
on the public square at an early date.
nidentally it will be of interest to 0
ote that the town is considering
plans for the parking of this square.
hey have long since removed all
wagons and the wagon yard to an in
onspicuous part of the town. Not a
orse was seen hitched nor a wagon
standing on the public square. They
oral to learn from this is that park- I
ng a publie square does not interfere
with the commercial spirit of the
"The hospitality of the ladies was
meeedingly kind and the members of
he party were invited to rest at dif
ferent homes in the city, and later in
he afternoon were honored with a
reception at the ebarming honie of
rs. Ellis. The whole lower floor;
was thrown into one and decorated
with a profusion of flowers and
"The ladies on the trip all join in'
saying that the day was ideal and
hat there was not a thing to mar the
pleasure of the trip. Long will the
earts of the ladies of Newberry be~
.lled with the pleasant memory of the
hospitality shown them on this oc
asion by the daughters of Clinton;
and the members of the civic league
here feel that they have gained newI
ideas and have a new impetus plhced
upon their work for a city beaut'ful
and especially for improved station
grounds and a parked public square.
"The members of the civic league
wish to thank Mr. Childs for the use '
of his private car, and Mr. E. H. t
Aull, throligh whose solicitation ti.e C
ar was obtained and Mr. T. T. Hanr- 6
ton. the official train master. and Mr. J
John B. Ma.yes, whose thoughtfulness n
and courtesy added much to the pleas- t
ure of the day.'' t
The following were the members of i
,the party: Mesdames L. W. Floyd, E.I
M. Evans. S. B. Aull. P. G. Ellesor,;
R. H. Wright, H. H. Abrams, S. J.
Woote'n, Mamie Carwile, B. M. Den

;ie Doiinick, Maud Langford, Effie

es House"al. Messrs. John B. Mayes,
Zichard Foyd, and Robert Gist.
Mr. Mayes Pleased With Clinton.
Mr. John 'B. Mayes, who is always
live to the 'progressiv-e spirit of any
own or community. says that on his
'isit to Clinton Friday he was most
greeably -tru(k with the wida-awake
)ublic spirited, and up-to-date busi
tess methods of the citizens of that
own. He repor'ts that they have all
f the modern 'equipments such as
lectric lights, water works, etc., bat
.e was most pleased with the large,
ommodious stores 4nd the large and
xcellent line of g ods -he fo in
hem. He says th-,e tne of>
ied by the merchants of Ch
could reflect credit on the store
much larger place
He also remarked that the appe
n1ee of the entirej place shows th
he civic league has been at wor ,
nd he says there are many beautiful
awns around the residences in the
ity. Of course, he, was struck with
linton 's beautiful depot, and it was
hbough the kindness of Mr. T. T.
lorton that the party lhad such a
-ood time, and Mr. Horton did every
hing he could to meet the wishes of
he party and make up for Mr. Child's
navoidable absence, which, of course
Tas much regretted anyway.
