TWO BANANA LEAVES.
Mr. J. S. INichols Exhibits One-Chief
Bishop Proud of One on City
A banana leaf was brought to town
Thursday afternoon by Mr. J. S. Nich
ols, from a tree about four feet high,
which Mr. Nichols says grew from a
sprout he had planted last January
and which he had brought from Flor
ida. The leaf measured 36 inches in
length and 20 inches in width, accord
ing to J. B. Walton's rule. Chief of
Police C. W. Bishop happened to see
Mr. Nichols showing the leaf to The
Herald and News group, so he gave
the reporter a duty to perform in tak
ing the measurements of the banana
tree near the Confederate monument
on the public square. The chief takes
a pride in that banana tree and doesn't
want it to be outstripped by a rival
tree. City Clerk J. R. Scurry did the
measuring and he tells The Herald
and News that the city banana plant,
which is 6 1-2 feet in height, being
somewhat older than Mr. Nichols', .has
a leaf measuring 46 by 22 1-2 inches.
One Day for the Orphans.
"One day's work in each year for the
orphan's home by every person young
and old." This motto has been accept
ed by about twenty institutions in the
Southern States, and the people are
asked to cooperate. One orphanage in
Georgia received last 'year $14,000, as
a result of the observance of the day.
We are informed that no institution in
South Carolina has received more than
$4,000 in any single year, but this
would be a good time for the record
to be broken. We hope many thous
ands of people will each send the pro-i
eeeds of wages, salary or earnings of
Saturday, Sept. 24, to the orphan
age of his own choice.
