White Man Going to Kinards to Put
Up Gin Had to be Locked Up
Mr. M. M. Ware, apparently about 40
years of age, came to Newberry on tho
morning South.ern passenger from Co
lumbia on Monday morning, with the
intention, it is said, of going to Kin
ards and erecting a gm for Mr. I. H.
Compton, the gin having been pur
chased from the Continental Gin con
pany, of Charlotte, and in less than 90
minutes after his arrival he was the
guest of the city in the guard house,
held under the charge of being drunk
and cursing on the streets. Shortly
before noon he put uD bond and was
released from custody.
Mr. Ware was taken in charge by
Policeman H. H. Franklin. He told
Policeman Franklin that the city
would be in the dickens of a fix (words
substituted for the sake of eliminating
profanity) if he was arrested, where
upon Policeman Franklin told him the
I city would have to suffer, and took
I him on to the lock-up. He remained
In the lock-up for several hours until
he furnished bond.
Even after his release he was a lit
tle peremptory in his talk with Police
man Franklin about a pint of liquor
Mr. Franklin had taken from him, and
Mr. Franklin naturally threatened to
loclVhim up aga)n if he repeated his
conduct of the forenoon.
Shot His Wife in the Hand.
The "unwritten law" was applied by
George Robertson, colored, on Sunday,
night, when he shot his wife in the
hand with a shot gun, inflicting a
wound which is paonful, and which
may be sufficiently serious to necessi
tate the amputation of his wife's hand.
The'shooting occurred in "Cannon
town," on the western outskirts of the
city, early SundaY night. Bessie Rob
ertson, George's wife, left home to go
to church, and he tecame suspicious,
in view of previous occurrences, and
set himself to watch. He saw his wife
and another negro, GeorgA Scott. to
gether, and he went hom- for his shot
gun. George Scott go away and Rob
ertson's wife was dodging behind a
tree when he shot at the tree. Her
hand evidently was exposed, and a
good many of the shot took effect in
George Robertson ,s a negro who!
has had the respect of the white peo-1
pe of the community. He is a car
penter who has been recently engagd
Iin the construction of the SummerI
Brothers garage in Friend street. He
was arrested on Sunday night by Chief*
Bishop and is now in the guard house.
As a result of his respectful good
conduct in the past, and the confidence
reposed in him by the white people of
Ithe community, sympathy seems now
to be largely with him in his trouble.

As to Cotton Seed. .
To the Farmers' Unions-County and
In our work for the price of cotton
we have overlooked the- ruinous prices
that have tbeen offered for cotton seed.
At prices that hade prevailed we
should use them for fertilizer rather
than sell. I have been informed, and
believe it to be reliable, that the mar
ket for cotton seed oil and -by pro
ducts, and the price of meal. would
warrant.$28 to $30 per ton for seed.
,ake care of your seed. Pick and
gin your cotton dry. Store the seed
in small piles well protected from the
weather and do not sell any seed till
the market advances considerably.

It would seem that the government

towards the erection of the postoffice

many months ago. The government is
now advertising for sealed proposals
for the complete construction of the
building, to bt received until October
11, 1911, which begins to look like
The people of NeNwerry very much
hope that the long delay is now at an
end, and that the construction of the
new building will soon commence.
They realize that with the great num

only natural that they should become
somewhat impatieant as a result of
