Ernest Hentz, Well Known Colored
Youth Killed Yesterday Morning
on Southern Track.
Ernest Hentz, a young colored
man whose father died about twc
wecks ago, was killed yesterday
mornikg on the railroaid track jusi
bevond the Bash river trestle.
The coroner empanelled a jury
and the inquest w,as held yesterday
Halek Hentz, grandfather of thE
deceased, sworn, said that the las.
time he saw Ernest was early aftei
breakfast yesterday morni.g and
that Ernest told him he was going tc
Greenville. He told Ernest he had
better not go.
Section Master Russell, who pieked
up parts of the remains scattered
along the 'track for about three hun.
dred yards, says, in his opinion, thE
deceased was killed by Southeri No.
15 going .towards Greenville thal
The body was literally cut up.
The verdict of the jury was thai
the deceased came .to his death ai
the hands of No. 15 operated by th<
Southern Railroad Co.
Ernest was a well known charac.
ter about the city, a harmless aDi
inoffensive sort of fellow; he wa
helpless, owing to partial paralysi.
with which he had always been af
flicted, and on account of his cheer
fulness and hopefulness, was en
abled to live greatly on the -charit]
of the public, from whom he con
staintly begged. He got the nickle
by asking for and playing on hi
mouth organ. Although cripple ani
not altogether responsible, he wa
very much of a traveler, frequentl;
,taking long distanees. Everybodi
will be sorry to leamni of the terribl
death he has suffered.

Number of New Farmers' Lines Built
and Connected.-Growth at Pros
A trunk line from the Delmar Tel
ephone company, over in Saluda
county, has been connected with the
Prosperity -exchange of the Southern
Bell Telephone and Telegraph com
pany, thus adding 85 more telephones
The farmers' line of Mr. Irby Har
mon has been connected with the
Prosperity exchange, the following
well known parties receiving ser
vice thereby: Irby Harmon, Allen
Hunter, Jeff I. Boozer, Irvin Boozer,
,Joe Harmon, _ialcolm Boozer.
Another station has been added to
line of Mr. J. B. Stockman, in the
residence of Mr. B. A. Connelly, and
one en the line of Mr. S. J. Koha,
same being in the residence of Mr.
J. H. Barnes.
The above are connected under
iwhat are called farmers' lines. Un
der this plan of the Bell system tele
phone service is furnishnd to the
farmers through the exchanges of
this company at a very low cost. This
plan contemplates that those in.ter
ested in securing telephone service
will construct the line and connect
with the Bell systam. The line and
the telephones and other equipment
are the property of the subscribers
and -the cost of service is very low,
varying according to the number of
Ssabscribers on the Inie.
The value of telephone service in
the country has been thoroughly
demonstrated and farmers in all see
tions of the South are taking a-dvan
tage of this modern means of com
r munication. It saves time and en
r ables the farmer and his family to en
joy social intercourse with neighbors
I and friends without the necessity of
leaving home. It is also of particu
lar advantage to merchants and busi
ness men in the town by reason of
placing the coun,try residents in reach
of them at all times.
Nowhere is this class of service
more appreciated than in that see
'tion About Prosperity, nor is there
any development anywhere to be
equals that of Prosp rity.
Under :the'same plan as above the
line, known as that of Dr. J. Win.
Folk has been connected with the
Newberry exchange, connecting -the
following parties, all grouped a,bout
Jalapa: W. H. Eddy, S. M. Duncan,
W. C. Sligh, Dr. J. Win. Folk, G. C.
The contwact of Mr. Welch Wilbur
hias been acceped by the Bell comn
pany. Mr. Wilbur has completed his
Sline artd same will be connected at a
very early date, furnishing service- to
the following: JsM. Bicekley, J. S.
Biekley, A. M. Miller, Welch Wilbur.
These .parties used an existing pole
line for part of this line but that
part that had 'to be built is put up in
a most excellent manner, and parties
who expect to build a telaphone lir,e
at -some future ~time would do well to
'see this line before building and take
note as to how a rural telephone line
should be ,built. Such a line as this
is sure to give little or no trouble, the
Spoles being in a perfect line, and
braced at all turns aund wire being
There is also another line ru.nning
out this same direction extending to
Bush River church. This line is known
as that of Mr. W. T. Buford, and will
be connected at a very early date fur
nisihing servi-ce to five parties alo'ng
Newberry is now in touch with
C happells, Old Town, and Silver

-build into these toll stations and

day between his two charges.

loveliest of flowers, rich and fra

This service was for the childrei
and their young voices rose clear anA

with the choir, singing -a joyous Eas

the choir was assisted by severa

large choir was of a high order an,
thoroughly enjoyed. The congrega
Ition joined heartily in the -servie
and hymns. Nearly three hundre
partook of the Lord's Sapper. An in
spiring feature of the service 'wa
the consecration of a bright youn
man to God and His service by adul
baptism. Quite a number unite
with the church by letters of trans
fer. A few items 'taken from th
~pastor's report made on this occasior
