Washingon, March 1. Sena'ior
Gordon of Mississippi last night gave
the largest theatre party ever known

Put Up Diamonds as Pledge
for Her Appearance for
CoIumbia, March 1.-Up to this
time it looks as if Mrs. Sallie A.
Gibson, niece of the late Levi Metz,
and worth $50,000 in cash, cold or
bot, has worked a clean-cut fli-flam
game on. the supplementary pro
eg4ngs instituteal against her to
compel her to pay a $100 judgment
granted Mr. R. L. Shuler in 1907
Mrs. Gibson was arrested Friday
afternoon and brought before the
court in supplementary proceedings
but the case was adjo'urned until
yesterday. She claimed she could
not put up a cash bond and being
now a .non-resident it seemed too
much like imprisonment for debt
to compel her, a widow at that, to
go to jail, so Judge Prince accepted
a couple of diamonds in a ring which
she said was all she had as security
for her appearance.
But Mrs. Gibson did .net put in her
appearance. Instead of her persch
the judge was ha.nded a letter which
came through the mail dated Salis
bury, N. C., Feb. 26, in which she in
formed the -judge that the ring put
up was not hers, but belonged to
Mrs. May MiEls, who was in court
with her last week; that Mrs. Mills
would call for it and to please give
it:;to her, "as you promised to retur'n
the ring Monday and Mr. Shuler 's
judgment is no judgment at all, as
I can prove he owes me money and
there i was nothing .in his .papers
saying anything about any money to
be paid him."
Mrs. Gibson added that she had a
broken bone in her back and could
iiot be back in Columbia yesterday.
She did not say why she went to

Judge Prince smiled when he read
Mrs. Gibson's note and signed an
order directing the sheriff to arrest
her and hold her in $200 bond. He
also signed an order directing the
clerk to sell the diamonds after due

JACKSON BORN IN THIS STATE
A. S. Sallay, Jr., Discovers Paper
Tending to Prove South Caro
Columbia, Feb. 26.-While Mr. A.
S. Salley, Jr., the secretary of the
historical commis.ion, was filing
some claims against the State of
South Carolina for services rendered
I or supplies furnished by individual
citizens of South Carolina during
the Revolution, he found a very in
.teresting appraisement of a horse
furnished for public use by William
Crawford, of Camden district. The
appraisers, who estimated the value
of. the horse to have been one hun
dred and fifty pounds currency, were
Robert Crawford and Anidrew Jack
son. The appraisement was sworn
to before Robert Montgomery, J. P.,
and was dated December 12, 1783.
At that time Andrew Jackson was
nearly seventeen years old. The
signature is in nearly the identical
hand- writing of "Old Hickory" in
his mature years. Robert Crawford,
his affiant, was his foster father and
kinsman, upon whotse plantation, in
what was 'then Camden district, but
whieh labor became Lancaster dis
trict, Jackson Was born as repeated
ly asserted by himself and others.
This is possibly the first official pa
per that Jackson put his hand to in
AS TO SCHOOLS.
Need of Enthusiasm in Management
-One Must Thow His Soul in
Mr. Editor :-Not all your read
ers donbtless had the opportunity to
read the article on the graded schools
of Sumter, in Suniday 's State.
For the ,be 2efit of such, will you not
reproduce the article in question ?
The writer has done school work
with the Sumter Superintendent, Mr.
Edmunds, and can vouch for the eon
seientious, painstaking and efficient
work that he does. Teaching is his
life w&rk, and the management and
improvement of his schools is his
Innovations that look to the im
provement of the schools do not have
to be thought out by the trustees
business men who are not employed
to give their whole attention to the
schools. Let any impartial reader
contrast the Sumter' schools with
some nearer home, and see what the
children of our town are missing.
And until trustees put men at the
head of their school who are in ev
ery sense capable, the schools wifl
be second and third rate, and the
children are the ones to suffer.
Three big school buildings simply
filled with children and some efficient
teachers, by no means make a
school system a success. There must
be a head over it all, a man who at
tends educational conferences, who
keeps in touch with the latest meth
ods in school work, a man. with school
enthusiasm, a man who is not con
tent to have his school always un-~
cfavoraibly compared with every
other school in the State, equal in
size, asg well as many much smaller.
In reading carefully the pro
grams of state educational'meetings
-teachers' association meetings, sui
perintenidents' meetings, etle., did
you ever notice the names that are
so very conspicuous by their absence?
It is noticeably and lamentably true.

catarrh is by employing a medicine
