In Columbia, S. C., Monday, Tuesda:
and Wednesday Evenings, and
Wednesday Matinee, Nov.
21, 22 and 23.
Much interest has been manifeste(
ooncerning the mechani,al methods o
the thrilling chariot race employed ii
Klaw &. Srlanger's new and greate
production of General Wallace's spec
tacle, "Ben Hur," which is to be pre
sented at the Columbia theatre, Co
lumbia, S. C., Monday, Tuesday an<
Wednesday evenings and Wednesda;
matinee, November 21, 22 and 23.
In this great arenic contest thi
spectator sees eight horses gallopin
at break-neck speed and straining ev
ery muscle to gain the advantage ii
the race within the ampitheatre. Be
hind each quartet of horses is a Ro
man chariot. Tbe wheels revolve rap
idly, the chariots l1rch and sway an(
the flaming beribboned garments o
the drivers flutter behind them, ad
ding intensity to the realism of th;
scene. The illusion is still furthe
increased as the interior wall of th
ampitheatre moves along and the dus
ties in blinding clouds beneath thi
crushing wheels of the chariots. Thi
ciatter of the rushing hoofs of th4
horses and the rumble of the chariot
are distinctly heard.
Elaborate mechanism and applica
tions of electricty produce this grea
effect. The mechanism of two grea
cradles, twenty feet in length an(
fourteen feet wide, and which ar4
'movable back and forth on railways
is supported by a bridge structuri
oapable of holding twenty tons. Th(
tops of the cradles are two inche,
above the level of the stage. Eacl
cradle there are four runways an
tread-mills of hickory slats two in
ohes wide and covered with rubber;
they are twelve feet long and two anc
a half feet wide. On each of thes(
ireadmills a horse long and two anc
a half feet wide. On each of thes(
treadmills a horse is secured by stee
cable traces, which hold him in placE
and prevent him from moving forware
off the runaways. As each horse gal
lops, the treadmill revolves under hi.
feet, thereby elimnating the forwar
pressure created by the impact of hic
hoofs, which would force him ahead
on an immovable surface. By this
mechanical arrangement it is possibli
'I'or the horses actually to gallop witl
all their speed within the space oj
their own length. It is considered thE
most realistic effect ever seen upor
For the accommodation of out-of
town visitors who wi'l want to wit
uess the staging of "Ben Hur" thE
management of the Columbia theatrE
announce that special attention wil:
be given to all orders for seats receiv
ed by mail. Prices will range from
75 cents to $2. Seats for "Ben Hur'
will be placed on sale Tuesday morn

,Y3EW LUTHERAN CHURCH.
To Be Built at Mollohon 11111 Village
by the Summer Brothers as a
Mfemorial to Their Father.
Rev. J. D. Shealy, writing to the Lu
theran Church Visitor, says:
"The service in the Summer Memo
rial church, Mollohon mill village, on
Sunday was the most interesting oc
-casion since the organization of tha
-congregation. This new congregation
-celebrated the holy commur.ion fox
the first time, and every Lutheran
*present at the service participated. Six
persons were received into the mem
bership-five by transfer and one by
"The congregation was organized
'by the writer on the fourth Sunday in
July with 26 members, which have
now increased to 40 confirmed mem
b ers, with 14 baptized members--tota]
"Another matter of special interest
to the members was the announce
ment by the pastor that the building
of a house of worship, so devoutly
hoped for, was an assured fact. Not
only is this the case, but the hope will
be realized in the very near future.
The church will be built by the Sum
mler t'others-C. E., J. H. and Geo. W.
Summer-as a memorial to their
father of precious memory. These
brethren are men with big hearts and
illed with the spirit of unlimited
C~hristian generosity. If the church
tad more men like them and other
ilberal-hearted members of the Church
of the Redeemer whom we might name
-and we will mention Dr. 0. B. May
or, who built Mayer Memorial church
-the perplexing problem of caring
for missions would be solved. For this
git both pastor and people fail tc
mnd words sufficient to express their
deep gratitude. May God's richest
bsenediction ever abide upon these
kind Christian friends."

ALREADY AFTER THE PLUMS.
Scramble Begins for Offices Under
Democrats-Many Employees to
Feel Effect of Changed Po
I News and Courier.
Washington, Nov. 14.- -The scram
ble for offices in the 62d congress,
1 which will be controlled by the Dem
ocrats, has already begun and every
where the campaign for capturing the
plums that are expected to be parceled
out by the Democrats has assumed an
interesting aspect. Although the
Democratic house will not take pos
session of the situation until Decem
ber, 1911, there are many employees
.:around the capitol who will feel the
effects of the recent election when the
present session of congress opens on
March 4, next.
There are four excellent positions
which will be In the gift of the Demo
crats-clerk of the house, sergeant
at-arms, doorkeeper, and postmaster,
each with an attractive salary attach
ed. The present clerk, Major McDow
ell, has already begun to pack bag and
baggage preparatory to leaving the
capital next spring, and likewise Ser
geant-at-Arms Henry Casson, Door
Keeper Lyon, and Postmaster Samuel
A. Langum, are already on the move.
There are four big places around
the house end of the capitol, although
there are many other incidental posi
tions of one kind and another. There
must be appointed a secretary to the
sjpeaker which place ist niow held
by L. White Busby, chaplain, super
i intendent of the document rooms, i
brarian, and superintendent of the
When a new sergeant-at-arms is
named to succeed Mr. Casson he will
have a very large number of appoint
ments to make in his department. All
the messengers, majority and minor
ity employees, deputies, laborers and
others will come under his jurisdic
Dorkeeper Lyon, likewise, will have
many good places to distribute, in
eluding a number of special employees
The big scramble, however, is com
ing over the smaller places, and al
ready it is apparent that there will be
hundreds of applicants for the secre
taryships of the various committees
of the house, after the big places have
been filled. There are sixty-one com
mittees, and each must not only have
a clerk, a messenger and assistants,
but frequently special employees are
placed on the rolls for one reason or
There will also be special officers,
policemen, janitors, messengers, etc.,
to be named for service in the house
office building, where the members of
the house are quartered in Washing
The only avowed candidate to show
himself yet for any of the larger
places is Representative Livingstone,
of Georgia, who, even before the Dem
ocrats were assured of control of the
house, began a systematic canvass of
the situation with a view to pulling in
the desired plum. He is working with
his colleagues in the hope of secur
ing their endorsement When the first
caucus is held next fall.. It is under
stood, however, that many others are
on their way to Washington for the
purpose of placing their candidacy
before the members of congress and
that they will get In some effective

Embarrassment for Clark!
The result in the East Tuesday,
when so many new Democrats were
elected, will make what is considered
an embarrassing situation for Champ
Clark if he is elected speaker. It is
recognized that in a distribution
among the Democratic fa.mily most
of the good places would go where 3
the Democratic votes come from the
1South--but Mr. Clark will have to take I
care of the places that have added so
many to his party. The East and
some sections, of the West will Mlaima
recognition just as much as the South,
and it will be up to him to make the 2
