Some people may think the comet
egg tis another traveling joke. But
since that Chester hen and a hen be
longing to young John M. Kinard each
laid a soft shell egg, smaller and
longer than the common egg, and
each having a tail which has given it
the name of "the comet egg," another
of this peculiar shape of curiosity
has been put up for inspection.
Helena has been heard from. This
last "egg" was sent from yard of
Mrs. Nellie Davis. It is on exhibition
at The Herald and News office, for
the doubting ones.
Egrly Monday .1orning several per
soniF had their attention drawn to a
mouse catching flies in the window of
Miss Annie Ruff's store, before the
store was opened for the day. The
mouse would crawl to th6 top of the
box ,in. which he was hiding and grab
a fly "just as easy," repeating the
performance at intervals. It was fine
sport to watch the proceedings.
Fish fry, frolic and fun of fishing
getting to be frequent and popular on

The annual address at the closing
exercises of the Florence graded
schools on Friday evening was deliv
ered by D'r. Geo. B. Cromer, of New
berry. Si:eaking of the address the
Florence correspondent of the News
and Courier says:
"The speaker of the evening was
Dr. George B. Cromer, of Newberry
college, who was introduced by Mr.
J. P. McNeil as "the great W,estern
light," not Halley's comet, however.
Dr. Cromer made a very strong and
eloquent address along educational
lines, the subject of his address being
"Character Building." Whatever vo
ation of life a boy chooses he should
never forget what it takes to make a
man. He referred to the late hero
of the 'Confederacy, Gen. Robert E.
Lee, who upon one occasion was of
fered a position paying a very hand
some salary. He refused the place,
saying that he was not competent to
meet the responsibilties of such a
place. but he was urged to accept
with the understanding that it *was
not his experience that was desired,
but his influence*. Gen. Lee replied
that his influence was not for sale.
These wet e the kind of men that the
world was looking for today, and Dr.
romner was very forceful in trying, to
impress this "fact upon the parents
Dr. Cromer also delivered an ad
ress last week on the occasion of
he closing exercises of the St. John
reei school at Darlington.

pot at this place, the citizens of the
town, headed by the Business Men's
club, tendered an informal banquet

N. & L. railroad, and his office force
form Columbia Friday night. At least
300 people of the town gathered to
meet the railway men, and shortly
after their arrival from Columbia on
the late afternoon train, the celebra
tion was begun. Mr. W. B. Shealy
presided as toastmaster, and the
guests were welcomed by the mayor
of the town, Mr. W. A. Counts. A
very pleasant response was made in
behalf of the railway company by Mr.
John A. Willis, of Columbiat Mr..
J. B. Lathan, the first merchant of
the town, and one of the chief pro
moters of thetown,responded to "The
business growth of the town." "The
Church" was represented by the Rev.
0. B. Shearouse. "The School" by
Principal V. B. Sease. Prof. S. J. i
Derrick, of Newberry college, whose
boyhood home is here, responded to
"Little Mountain." President Childs
in his usual happy style, replied to
several jokes aimed at him during
the evening, and also assured the
people of his interest in this commu
nity ever since he had ridden on
horseback over the proposed railway
route in 1888.
The supper was one of those kinds
that only the Dutch Fork people
know how to prepare. Cakes, pies,
chicken, turkey, pork were served in
a free-for-all help-your-self style,
and there was plenty. The heaps of
delicious edibles on that spread will
linger for a while in the menories of
those present After several hours
of feasting the guests took their de
parture on the 9.30 train for Colum
About 30 members from the New
berry tribe of Red Men came down

BETRNED IN BOILING OIL.
Two Year Old Child, Playing About
House, Lost Life iu Distressing
Columbia State. 30th.
Gertrude Isabel, the two-year-old
daughter of C. G. Oehmig, died yes
terday as the result of burns sus
tained Saturday afternoon by acci
dentally falling into a tub of hot cook
ing oil. Mr. Oehmig, a baker, was
absent from home at the time and the
oil was for use in the preparation of
doughnuts. The child in some man
ner escaped the vigilance of the fem
ily and wandered to the spot where
the oil had been placed. The child's
back and limbs were severely scalded.
Dr. DuBose was hastily summoned
and the child's suffering alleviated
for the time, but medical skill proved
unavailing, the burns covering so
large portion of the body and being
of so severe a nature. The news of
the little girl's death will be received
with general regret, her bright dis-f
position making her a general favor
ite with all.

Herald and News the voluntary con
tribution list to reimburse the Excel
sior Hose company for wagon which

those who have contributed. The list
is printed again and shows $66.50.
Some of this has not yet been paid. It
is desired that it all be paid at once,
so that the whole amount may be
turned over to the treasurer of the

send it to The Herald and News or
