ON THE DIAMOND.
Next Game at College Park This Af
ternoon Between Newberry and
(By H. B. Wessinger.)
The next game of base ball on the
college diamond will ,be played on
Friday, April 8, between the college!
team an;d the Anderson professional
club. The Anderson club is compos
ed chiefly o.f college players and
there is no reason why the college
can't give them a good game, or,
perhaps, run. a score or two ahead.
Our men field well, hit well and we
have an excellent college battery and
if we gt eevrything that comes our
way (and we could do it) the pro
fessional .0ub won't have a thing on
us. So why can't we beat them?
This game was arranged for the ben
efit of those who don't often get to
see a profesonal club work and we
want everybody to get the benefit
.f !he arrangEment, so come out a:.d
we will show you that you have a
team that you are proud of.
If we don't win on Friday doi'oi
get discoaraged for we play them a
second game on Saturday and we are
bound to have one of the two. The
game on Friday will be called at 3.30
p. m., and will be over in time for I
any who may wish to attend the Ba- I
raea-Philathea exercises at 5 o'clock. 1
We will call this game promptly at
The next game after this will ba
with Charleston college on April 11.
The boys from the Battery lhave al
ways given us a nice gamne, and we
are proud to say that there has been
several games played between us
without a single kiek from either
side. Now there is nothing better to:
look,at th:an a game of ball like that
and that is the kind of a game you
will see Mon;day if you come out.
Everybody takes what he gets and
doesn't give anything to anybody. else

Wednesday was a windy day and
it is not surprising that there were
fires. They occurred in various see
tions of the county, some of which
have been reported to us.
On Brown and M6seley's place,
some six or eight acres of pines were
run over by ,blazes which destroyed
the straw belonging to Mr. John
Cousins, Sr., but not seriously dam
aging the woods, although Mr. Cous
ins says he wouldn't have had it
happen for a hundred dollars. How
ever, the neighbors fought the fire!
and put it' out, working hard, thus
preventing a fire which would other
wise have caused considerable dam

tatio.n a lot of fine timber was de
stroyed. The fire came near burning
up $250 worth of lumber.
Mr. W. Ham Bobb lost about a
hurndred dollars' worth of cord wood
by a fire on.his place.
Mr. Jno. C. Hipp lost about twenty
five cords of wood on his pla ce some
six miles south of Newberry.' Smoke
was seen in other directions and no
doubt there were other fires.
A Negro Drops Dead.
Coroner W. E. Felker got, word
Tuesday that a colored man had
dropped dead in a field near Silver
Street. He went to the place and
after a thorough investigation of all
the circustances in connection with
the su.dden death, and being con
vinced -that there was no necessity
for the expenses of an inquest to be
incurred, he pronounced .the death to
have oceurred from natural causes.
The circumstances were these:
Mack Burton, while at work in Mr.
John Hendrix 's field, saw a dog after
.a rabbit. He joined in the chase and
ran about a hundred and fifty yards,
-when he returned to resume 'his corn
planting. "Thinking to take a short
rest after his violent run he went to
sit on the wagon tongue, falling dead
while in the acting of taking a seat.
He was about 45 years old.

The regular meeting of eity coun

other things it was decided to put a

not amount to much but if I had op- V

(Contia-.ed from April 1.)
That day and night Jake Baldwin
ossed about on a bed of pain, like
,n old ship on a storm swept sea.
lis trouble had been a severe frae
ure of the knee, but the good old
ountry physician- placed. it in band
,ges and straps, and expressed him
elf quite ieonfdently that "Jake
rould be up and a-bout in a weak or
wo." Cage was in more mental pain,
E possible, than his young master
vas in physicial. Jake had taken
he most bitter medicine in ramorse
ad rocking pain, while Cage's was
-et to come. That night he was part
y delirious, had fevered dreams, his
aind wandering far away at times.
Tow he was with Cage on the en
hanted island, as it seemed to him,
ancing around the campfire, sur
ounded in its symphony of green and
old, the green of the island foliage,
he gold the rippling stream, with the
aoon's reflected rays. Then again
e would see myriads patrolers, cir
ling the camp like an army of wild
torsemen. Then his fevered brain
ould revert to the scenes of revelry,
t odd fiddler Bob's and he would
iugh in childish glee, at some imag
aary happening. 'Shove your bow,
juele Bob,' shove your bow. . Come
.own on' the home stretch, Elick," he
rould call out.
Thus .the ~9iTET' were away, his
other coming up during the night,
at to sympathize with him though,
he was too wrought up over the dis
race of her son being caught by
patterolers at a negro hoe down."
he chided him with such soothing ex
ressions as ''Sermed you right, if it

Near day break, 'while the moon

ake Baldwin was instantly seized
rith a violent nage. He charged Cage
ith 'being the author of all his
coubes and pain, by this lurid pic

im for it. Cage began talking in a
rrowing tone, tied to sooth the con
iting emotions that were raging in
is young master's breast, and the
nger soon -passed away. They both

onfidential manner. Jake expressed
reat remorse 'at being the real cul

uld so easily have prevented, and
