board, as well as for all other public
acts while he was in office.
"What about the hosiery mill sit.

determination was unalterable that
the hosiery mill must go, and must go

recent official requests. He said that
-upon his return to Columbia, as soon
as time would permit, he would call
upon Superintendent Griffith for a re

at work in the hosiery mill, the coun
'ties from which they were sent up, the
'offences of which they were convicted,
and terms of service. "The hosiery

Thursday afternoon occurred the
funeral of Howsen Calhoun Kenner, i

accident years ago crippled him for (
life, and since that time he has been a
little seen on the streets. His old sol-) I

over again the fierce joy of victory and (
the gloom of defeat which marked the "a
ebb and flow of the modern world's j
most appalling war. I
