MRS. CRAFTS BODY
EXHUMED BY CORONOlP
STOMACH SENT TO COLUMBIA FOI
Body Taken up at Request of Fathei
And Other Relatives of the Dead
At the earnest solicitation of th(
father and sisters of the dead wo
man. Coroner Felker. of Newberr3
county, and Coroner Eugene Batson
of Greenville county, on Sunday morn
ing exhumed the dead body of Mrs
Beatrice Crafts. wife of Moses C
Crafts, who died in Greenville som(
days ago, and who was buried ir
Rosemont cemetery, this city-hei
former home. It will be recalled thai
last week Governor Blease ordered 0
re-investigation into the facts sur
rounding the woman's death, and il
was reported from Greenville that this
re-investigation had been made, and
that it had been determined that death
was from natural causes.
Tae stomach was removed from thE
body by Dr. W. A. Dunn, and was sent
to Columbia for examination by Dr.
F. A. Coward, the State chemist.
Mrs. Crafts was found dead in bed
at her home in the Carolina mill vil
lage, in Greenville, on last Thursdayq
morning a week ago. An inouest wa.
held, and a verdict rendered that
death was due to heart failure. Un
der date of June 5, Governor Blease
wrote to Sheriff Poole, of GreenvillE
county, instructing him to ,have the
matter re-investigated immediately, in
view of reports which had reached
him. Governor Blease said in his let
ter that it was "repvrted that Crafts
bought a coca cola the night before
(the night before the death of bis
wife) and gave it to his wife; that
she drank it and went to sleep and
did not wake again. It is also stat
ed,"' wrote the governor, "that Crafts
left home that morning, left his wife
in bed as]IeD - ;d went off wit',i b4z
breakfast, something that he had not
been known to dd before. It Is fur
ther reported that he had the inquest
held and the body embaldied before
any of her relatives~ could reach tb;e
place. It is further reported that
Crafts was cruel to nis wife, and her
peo:)le have suspicion of poisoning."
'Governor Blease asked that the mat
ter be thoroughly Investigated, and if
there were suspicious circumstaAces,
that the body be taken up and exam
ined by physicians.
Later Coroner Felker of this city
was informed by the Greenville sher
iff that the matter had been investi
gated and that there was no founda
tion for the suspicit.. of relatives.
The woman's father and other rel
atives -were not satisfied, however,
and last week, Mr. Ellie B. Goldman,
of Columbia. Mrs. Crafts' father, ac
companied by his two married daugh
ters, went to Greenville to confer with
Sheriff Poole and Coroner Batson.
They had a conference with Sheriff
Poole but did not see Coroner Batson.
Thdy returned to Newberry on Satur
day and requested Corone9r Felker to
have the body taken up.
Coroner Feliker communicated with
Coroner Batson, of Greenville, and
told him'of the situation, and Coroner
Batson came to Newberry on Saturday
night. These two officers 'secured
the services of Dr. Dunn and on Sun
day morning the body was taken up,
and the stomach removedl, and sent to
Columbia to the State chemist for
Mr. and Mrs. Crafts formerly lived
in Newberry. Mr. Crafts was a po
liceman here for a few months during
last year, resigning the position be
fore the expiration of his commission.
The two daughters who have 'been
pressing the matter with their father
are Mrs. George Wilson, of Columbia,
and Mrs. Jesse Crafts. of Atlanta, the
latter having married a brother of her
dead sister's husband.
The Williamson Company.
The assigned stock of jewelry of
Daniels & Williamson has been;
bought by the Williamson company,
Mr. E. E. Williamson. manager. The:
great slaughter sale of this stock is*
now on and will continue until it- is
disposed of. No goods charged and;
none sent on approval, but if anything
purchased is not satisfactory your
money will be returned on return of:
the goods. The sale is on at the old;
stand of Daniels & Williamson in
Main street, and this is a great oppor
tunity to secure some fine articles at
a very low price.

CHAUTAUQUA AND HOME
COMING WEEK IS NEAR
FINE ATTRACTIONS FOR EVERY
DAY OF GALA WEEK.
Something of the Various Numbers,
Headed by Wni. J. Bryan and
R. P. Hobson.
Newberry is in Chautauqua business
in dead earnest. Beginning with
June 13, and continuing through June
24. Newberry will have on one of the,
most elaborate Chautauquas ever
booked in South Carolina.
William Jennings Bryan. who is
yielding a tremendous influence upon
the tbught of this age; Hobson, of!
Merrimac fame, and ineteen others
men and women of renown will com
pose the week's entertainment.
Newberry is all aglow with enthu
siasm. The chamber of commerce is
going to give a home coming week,
and elaborate plans are formed for
entertaining out-of-town guests. Sea
son tickets twere put on sale Thurs
day morning for the Chautauqua and
$500 worth sold the first day.
We have a large, handsome and
well ventilated auditorium, and out
of-town -guests, wishing to attend the
Chautauqdua, can have tickets reserved
by writing or telephoning Mr. Jno. B.
Mayes, treasurer of Chautauqua As
Besides Bryan and Hobson, the pro
gram will include one entertainmenti
by Miss Bargelt. Miss Bargelt is the
fortunate possessor of a.pleasing per
sonality. In fact, she fairly teems
with that mysterious quality univer
sally designated as personal magne
tism. Miss Bargelt is a crayon artist
and comes in a company of four, who
promise an evening of rare enjoyment.
Tom Corwine, recognized as one of the
greatest polyphonic imitators, comes
for one engagement. He makes you
laugh without being ashamed of your
self; makes you think without feeling
that you are bored by a moralizing
tale. To hear Corwine for an hour is
like taking a health tonic. He will
rest your tired brain, and make your
sou-l cleaner than before. The great
master of magic, mirth and mystery,
IWalden, gives an entertainment. With
Walden on the stage delusion fills the
atmosphere and men and women doubt
the accuracy of their own sight.
Following Walden, will be Eldredge,
Iwho is one of the greatest impersona-j
tors who will travel the South this
summer. He has been on the profes
siona-l platform about ten years, but
he has been an entertainer all his'
life. He renders such plays as Enocht
Arden, Shylock, Fagin, David Harum,
E?ben Volden, Chilo and many other
popular plays- and novels.
Another entertainme'nt will be given1
by Charles Newcomb from the Univer
sity of Chy,ttanooga, in which institu
tion he ik professor of oratory. Mr.
Newcomb posesses a full, rich voice
of excellent range. His presence com
mands the immediate attention of his
audience, and his easy, natural ges
tures and effective pantomime 'work
aid greatly in presenting his interpre
tations of these splendid plays he has
phosen for the entertainment of hisI
audience. He can interpret and keep
distinctly apart ten d-ifferent charac
ters, and make you see them so clear
ly as to believe them real, living hu
man beings. .
The De Koven quartette, together
with a ten piece brass band, has been
engaged for the entire week. Rev.
Louis Bristow opens the Chautauqua e
by conducting the union services in
the city opera house Sunday evening, ~
Mr. Hobson is here on Monday, June e
19, and Mr. Bryan comes on Wednes
day, and Clark, of Chicago, will be the
platform manager for Chautauqua for
the entire week, and will also deliver
one lecture. His subject is "Playg
Ball.'' Clark takes everybody to be
good and to be worthy of his friend
ship until it is proven the contrary,
He is a good, jolly, natural fellow and G
his lecture is brim full of comedy.
Newberry is going to ce]ebrate her
home-coming week and crowds are
expected from all parts of the State.
Reduced railroad rates to the New
berry Chautauqua have been granted,
by the Blue Ridge railway, Columbia,
Newberry and Laurens railway, Caro
lina, Clinchfield and Ohio railway. -
Charleston and Western Carolina rail- ~
way, and the Southern railway.
The officers behind this enterprise
will leave nothing undone that will
contribute to~ the comfort and pleasure
of visitors to the Chautauquans, and
for the ultimate success of the entira
undertaking. It is proposed to make
this a permanent enterprise. The way C
in which our people have taken hold
of it and the rapid sale of tickets has
demonstrated that the June Chautau
qua for Newberry and for the sur- T
roundinig country is just what is want
ed. Do not wait until Chautauqua is
on to try to get your ticket, but write
or 'phone at once.
Mr. Bryan, in spite of all criticism
to the contrary, has never wielded a
greater influence than he does today,
has never had a more burning mes
sage for the American people than he
is bringing to Newberry, and he has
never enjoyed better health and great
er power of oratory than he now pos
sesses. His entrance into South Caro
lina will now enable thousands to
hear him, but*there is no better place
to hear him than in Newberry.
Hobson's message too has received
flattering press notices from the Paci
fic to the Atlantic, and a full house is
expected for Hobson.
The city of Newberry is to be con
gratulated for the progressive move
ment she is making a this direction,
and those who come to this city from
Juna 18 to 24 will have the oppor
tunity of seeing a real typ:ical South
ern town fired with zeal and enthus
iasm with an undertaking that is cal
culated to have a tremendous educa,
tional influence in this part of the
Florida Cotton Bloom.
Dr. W. G. Houseal has received a
letter from Mr. W. R. Gauntt, planter
and trucker, of Maxville, Fla. Mr.
Guantt enclosed a couple of cotton
blooms from his farm. He says: "I
have the best crop I have ever had. .
. My field is white with cotton
blooms. If you intend to farm come
to t4e country to do it."
The following invitations have been
received in Newberry. Mr. and Mrs.
Goggans will come to Newberry and
spend several weeks:

Pass It On.
If any citizen has any suggestion
hat he thinks will help make the comn
ng Chautauqua a success, he should
>ass it on to those who have the man
tgement of the entertainment in
harge while there is yet time for them
o get behind it. We are sure that
hey' will be willing and glad to re

ry other citizen. The purpose is to
