COL HUNT PROBABLY
WILL BE PRESIDENT
NEWBERRY'S THIRD MILL ASSUR
ED BEYOND A DOUBT.
Al Interests Have United Upon Mr.
Hunt as the Man Who Can Carry
Col. W. H. Hunt is being urged to
accept the presidency of the propos
ed third cotton mill for Newberry,
and while it would mean a financial
3acrifice on his part for a considera
ble while, At least, it is believed that
he will heed the unanimous call of
those who are interested in the enter
prise, and who have shown their faith
in it and in Newberry by taking large
blocks of stock.
Col. Hunt is one of the leading
members of the legal profession in
South Carolina, and his firm has a
large and lucrative practice. When
the matter of a third mill for Newbgr
ry was being agitated he was select
ed as the man to carry the project
through. At that time Col. Hunt felt
that the press of business upon his
time was such that he could not take
hold of the project. Several times af
ter that the matter was brought to
his attention, and, seeing the need and
the field for 'a third mill here, and
the unanimity of the people of New
berry in their desire for a third mill,
be took hold of the matter, and in a
remarkably short time the stock nec
essary to assure the success of the
mill was subscribed. The business
interests of the community were un
ited on this enterprise, and the unani
mity -of action which was displayed
has been a great help to the city, ov
er and above the material results
which will follow the building of the
third mill. Increased subscriptions
ince have confirmed these assur
ances of success, and the third mill
lor Newberry is a certainty.
The building of the mill being as
5ured, the matter of a man to be
placed in charge was the next ques
:ion. Upon this question, as upon all
.he others in connection with the
>uilding of this third mill, the people
>f Newberry were united. Col. Hunt
was looked upon as the man.
No definite statement has been giv
an out by those in chiarge, but the
~all has been made, and it is not be
ieved that Col. Hunt will decline, al
hough, is stated, it must involve a
nancial sacrifice on his part for a
Col. Hunt is the senior member of
he law firm of Hunt, Hunt & Hun
er, who have one of the largest and
ost lucrative practices in this sec
:ion of South Carolina.
Col. Hunt has held a number of
:ourts as special judge, and the com
endation of the local bars where he
as held these courts and the records
>f the supreme court evidence his
egal training and ability. As a
>usiness man, he has been success
1l, in every enterprise which he has
mdertaken, and no better selection
~ould be made for president of the
:hrd cotton mill for Newberry-the
'city that does things."

Nothi -preventing, the following
yrogram of divine services will be b
~erved at the Lutheran Church of the
edeemer next Sunday.
11 a. m. The regular morning ser
ice with a sermon 'by the pastor on
he subject, "The fate of six hundred
housand men.-A warning." There
s nothing so sad as the picture of a
alen human being. When the Son
>f God stood weeping over Jerusalem
t was not the ruined city that so
ouched his great heart, but the fate
i- thousands of men and women who
iad neglected their opportunities. To
lay the world is full of poeple who
ave fallen, who are falling, and who
nay fall. Of the six hundred and
hree thousand five hundred and fifty
nen who were able to bear arms, and
vho eft Egypt, and saw the great
ower of God in the desert, only two1
eached the Promised Land. The
ermon will be an attempt to answer,
he questions, 'Why do so many fall?'
od, 'What are the ways of escape?'
hese will make the message very
ractical and important.

Hon. Cole L. Blease, of Newberry,

nan to defeat. He is one of the best

BLEASEIS EUEEKAS WIN.
A Goose Egg Handed West End Ag- ]
gregation-Price's Pets Failed
to Make Good.
West End failed to convince local
fandom-and themselves-that there 1
is nothing to the "thirteen hoodoo,"1
when they failed to defeat Blease's
Eurekas on the college diamond Wed
nesday afternoon. The West End ag-I
gregation, with its State-wide repu-I
tation as the fastest amateur ball
team within the borders of Southl
Carolina, went into this game with ai
full determination to make their vic
tories for the season 13, 12 other
teams having previously gone down
in defeat before them. Only a few
days ago the Augusta aggregation
took it upon themselves to break the
winning streak of the West Enders,
making the latter bite the dust for the
first time this season. Some of the
more superstitious ones at once gave
the credit for the game to the "thir
teen hoodoo," and it was to prove to
the aforesaid superstitious folk that
there was nothing to this "funny
business" that a game was arranged
between West End and Blease's Eu
rekas, the latter a picked team of the
city, under the management of Mr.
Cannon G. Blease.
But, sad to relate, Price's Pets
could not nfake good their argument
that the 13th victory is as easy to!1
land as the other 12, the Eurekas out
arguing them to the tune of 8 to 0.
Perhaps the best explanation of the
whole affair can be found in the fact
that it was an ".off day" for West End
-and the added fact that Blease's
Eurekas were by no means a slow set
of ball players. As a matter of fact,
the picked team was composed of
some of the best material that could
be secured in and around this burg
and they proved it in Wednesday's
The game was a benefit for Sam
Jones, the second sacker for West!
End, who was seriously injured in a
game several weeks ago, and a neat
sum was realized for that popular
player. Umpire Hardeman, who has
become the "official umpire" for all
games played in Newberry, handled
the indicator on this occasion, and as
usual, his decisions met with the
hearty approval of all parties con
Huff and Eidson, both college pitch
ers, opposed each other in this game,
and there was nothing short about the
work of either, but Huff had the better
of the argument, as will be seen by*
reference to the score. McCall, for
West End, caught a fine game, and
his throwing runners out at second1
was a feature of the game. H uff was
given good support by his team mates,
the Eurekas putting up an errorless
game, while Eidson was not quite so
fortunate at times. But, have you
ever tried to play ball with a "hoo
doo" perched upon every ball that is
thrown and hit? Well-there-.is no
telling what the result might have
been had this been the 13th game for

HEAVIEST RAIN IN YEARS.
Great Downpour in Newberry on
Monday Evening.-Seott's Creek
One of the hardest rains in Ne'V
berry in a long number of years fell
on Monday evening. The rain was
between six and seven o'clock, and
for about thirty minutes it seemed
that the clouds had bursted and that
all the rain was trying to fall at once.
Scott's creek was over all the bridges,
and the bridge between the Werber
place and the college, in Calhoun
street, was washed away, going down
the stream and some of the timbers
landing at the railroad trestles.
In College, Caldwell and Nance
streets the stream was over the bridg
es, and the "bottoms", near the rail
road, were flooded, the water being in
some of the houses and in the yards
of most of the houses in that settle
Considerable damage throughout
the county was done by the rain. This
story is told in another column of this
issue of The Herald and News, along
with an estinate of crop conditions.
About ten 'years ago there was a
rain which put Scott's creek out of Its
banks and flooded the "bottoms,"
and which put the water up into the
old negro Baptist church. There was
really more water at that time than
on Monday night, but the rain con
tinued longer. During the time it
lasted, Monday night's rain was ttt~
hardest which has fallen here in IL
great many years.
Below the Werber place, in Calhoun
street, where the old bridge was
washed away, a new bridge was being
built. The new bridge was partly
washed away and greatly damaged.
