POISONED BY BLACKBERRIES?
Four Negroes Were Taken Sick and
Died Near Shelton After Eating
Upon her arrival from Maybinton,
where she has been visiting at her
old home, Mrs. W. V. Lyles, reported
that the information recived by her
brother, -Mr. Lyles Thomas, in the
Maybinton community was that* four
negroes had died suddenly-three of
them in the same family and in one
house-at Shelton, just across the riv
er in Fairfi4ld county, and that it was
supposed the death of the four negroes
was ,caused by some poisonous insect
on blackberries which 'they had pick
ed and eaten just a short while before
they died. The names of the negroes
are not known. It is said two of them
were about grown and two of them
were younger. It is not known what
else could have caused their death,
and it is stated it is generally,suppos:
ed it was due to the blackberries, the
medical opinion being that the cause
was some poisonous insect in the
The four negroes, it is stated, were
together in the blackber'ry hunt which
is supposed to have been the cause
of their death. The blackberries were
eaten in the afternoon and the death
occurred during the night or early the
next morning, it is stated.

TO BUILD HIGHWAY. I C
Governorment Expert and Supervisor 3
to Go Over Charleston-Colum
bia-N ewberry-Ashevi1le Road.
Mr. J. B. Hunter, the vice pr-sident
for Newberry county, on the Charles- a:
ton - Columbia - Newberry - Asheville a
highway is busy making arrangements V
and preliminaries for the proper ii
working of the road. He has invited B
Mr. M. Goode Homes, a good road ex- a:
per from the Federal government, to r
go over the road in Newberry and
make suggestions, and probably will S
get him to supervise the building of 1
some sand-clay road. It is expected T
to have the cooperation of Supervisor si
Feagle and to have him go over the h
road with Mr. Homes. e<
The automobile owners of the coun
ty have raised a purse of some $400 or h
$500sto put on the road between New
berry ana Prosperity, the work to be
done under the supervisidn of the sup
ervisor. 'It is expected that addition- W
al amounts will be contributed and d
the farmers and others along the road
will make a free will offering of teams Ii
and labor to put Newberrv's section
in fine condition.
The work is to be done between now
and the 17th of August.
On that day the finishing touches,
are to be put on and visitors will go
over the road from Charleston to
Asheville and from Asheville to Char
This is a proposition which should
have and no doubt will have the hear
ty cooperation and aid of all the peo- s<
ple of county. If these roads through it
the county-ifor Newberry is to have b,
two-are put in good condition it will tc
stimulate road building and it will not
be long before many other roads will R
be worked in the same way.
The people along the proposed
routes are enthusiastic. Let the en-S
thusiasm continue and spread until to
there is a good road in every section
of the county.
Bad Little Storm.
Milton Marshall, colored, from Miss
Fannie Johnstone's place about four
miles northeast of the city, was in w
town Tuesday afternoon and reported tc
a storm on the place Tuesday morn- J w
Ing. The storm was sudden and of ce
brief duration, but it was very violent Y
while it lasted. Marshall says that it P
got pitch black around there and the i
thunder and lightning, rain, hail and w~
wind were terrific. Says he saw no di
cloud approaching. It was like a peal S1
of .thunder from a clear sky, frighten- di
ing the household. He didn't knQw
whether it was a cyclone or a cloud- a:
burst, or a little of both, as the wind: T
raged mightily and there was a heavy, al
downpour. The storm centred and: C:
snent its short-lived fury on that one~
sT)ot; nowbere else not even* on'the p
six horse farm, did it rain or stoxm. s
The orchard got the worst of it, some a
of the trees being blown down and.
their destruction wrought right there.
THE JUDGE'S ELOQUENCE.
Wins His Case, But Loses His Memory o
Teinporarily and Forgets
Nearly verybody in the county byr
this time knows or-has heard of Judge c;
John Henr+ Chappell's eloquence and:
enthusiasm in any cause in which his
sympathy is enlisted. At a quite re
cent meeting of an order of which both a'
ladi-s and gentlemen are members and- d
entitled to hold office the judge nomi
nated a certain lady friend of his for
a high office and backed~up the nomi
Hation with one of his -best speeches.'
He soared high in the ethical blue to
pluck a bow to match her eyes and
grasped at Venus to catch a spray to
wreathe her shining hair and grabbed
at the Zephyrs playing around the
moon to get a cluster of waving beamsc
'to encircle her form. He won. The
lady was elected.
Now be it remembered that the .fudge
is nothing if not gallant to the fair
sex. Although he is a grandfather :
and doesn't look it, being one of the I
younger set of grandfathers, he is a
great lady's man. What he would do
or would not do for the ladies has no
limit, whether he has On his coat or
has left it at home.
Well, the judge was so carried awayj
with hsbeautiful work that after the:
meeting he escorted some of the ladies
to their homes. When he got to his
own home it was getting late. His
wife reminded him that Maud hadn't
been fed; that he had better go feed
her. Exclaimed the judge: "Maud!
H-i! Maud's hitched behind Klett
ner's store." You all know where the
amiable judge lives. Well, he footed it
'back to- town and got his horse and'
buggy. All such as this is what keeps -
the judge so young looking.
