ill health for more than a year.
Mrs. Avant -was tricken with para
lysis about a year ago. She never re
covered from the stroke, though she
was able to get about the house with
aistance. About a week ago her
condition became such that her re
covery was despaired of but on
Thursday she appeared much better
mdd her condition continued to im
proe. On Sunday she appeared to be
so much better that her son, George
Avant, who had been called here by
the illness of Mrs. Avant, returned
to his home at Cliffside, N. C.
The following children survive Mrs.
Avant: Misses Alice, Lula and Lizzie
Avant, Pierce, Dargaint, William, Char

CHAMBER OF C01,1ERCE nEETS.

Invites Photographers-31r. Ham
by on Corn Exposition.
In response to the call issued by Mr.
John B. Mayes, president of the cham
ber of commerce, for a special meet
ing on Tuesday evening there was a
fairly good attendanZ present.
It is difficult to get the business
men of Newberry together on any
proposition that looks to the general
welfare of the community and Presi
dent Mayes did not state in the call
the special purpose of the meetinf,
thinking, probably, that he could get
the business men out to satisfy their
cuiriosity. This may or may not he
been his reason for not stating his
President Mayes called the meeting
together and, stated that there had
been more or less complaint as to
the cotton market and cotton seed
market at Newberry and he thought it
would be a good idea for the cham
ber of commerce, which is composed
of the business men of the community,
to get together and discuss the situa
tion. Unfortunately some of those
who have had a good deal to say
about the cotton market were not
There was very little discussion, but
upon a motion of Mr. C. T. Summer- a
committee of three was appointed to
look into the matter and to report at
another meeting to be held one weelk
later. This committee is charged with
the duty of thorougnmy investigating
the situation and has been requested
to make such recommendation as may
seem proper. It was decided to ap
point one member not a member of
the chamber of commerce. Follow
ing is the committee: G. B. Summer,
(not a member), Robert Norris and
S. P. Crotwell.
F. P. Devore was caIled, upon to
make report as to the progress of the
work on the road between Newberry
and Little Mountain. It will be re
membered that Mr. nevore raised by
private subscription about $400 or
$500 to be turned over to the super
visor to assist in the working of this
road especially between Newberry and
Prosperity. . Mr. Devore reported that
the ch'ain gang was now at work and
would continue to wors until the road
got to Little Mountain, but just how
long it would take he did not know.
He also reported that he did not think
'it possible to relocate the road so as
to. avoid the grade crossings of the
railroad- An effort has been made to
get the land owners along the road to
agree to it lBut M\r. Devore stated that
it was impossible to do so, and that
the only way to relocate would be to
bring condemnation proceedings, and
the only people who could do that
are the supervisor and county com
missioners and it was understood that
they had stated that they would not
institute such proceedings.
*It was decided to extend an invlita

Photographers at present in annual
convention in Asheville, to hold their
next annual meeting in Newberry,' and
Mr. Devore telegraphed the invitationl

LOViNG CP IS GITEN R. W. RISER
Seaboard Air Line Employes Showed
Regards for Alim.
In appreciation of courtesies ex:
tended in a recent yoint meeting of
the representatives of the freight
traffic department of the Seaboard Air
Line and the Ocean Steamship com
pany, the members of the former local
organization today presented Mr. R.
W Riser, commercial agent of the
Ocean Steamship company, with al
handsome loving cup.
The presentation was entirely of an
informal nature. Mr. V. C. Tompkins,
assistant general freight agent of the,
Seaboard, called upon Mr. Riser, re
questing that he accompany him to
the office. Mr. Riser consented, be
lieving that Mr. Tompkin's desire was
to discuss business matters with him.
When they arrived at the Seaboard
offices, Mr. Tompkins presented the
cup with a few appropriate remarks.
Mr. Riser was taken entirely by sur
prise, and for a while was unable to
collect his thoughts sufficiently to re
spond. However, ne tendered his
thanks and appreciation to his friends
informally through Mr. Tompkins.
The loving cup is of copper with
silver mountings and of a neat de
sign. The following inscription is
neatly engraved upon the bowl:
"To our friend, R. W. Riser, with
the everlasting good wishes of the
Seaboard Air Line Traffic Department,
Savannah organization. September
The meeting of the members of the
two departments in remembrance of
which the trophy was presented was
an informal gathering for the purpose
of discussing affairs pertaining to the
operation of those departments of the
railroad and steamship line. Mr. Ris
er had charge of the entertainment of
the members and did so in a manner
that is pleasantly remembered by
them. Mr. Riser is very proud of the
gift.-SaVantiah Press, Sept. 20.
Church of the Redeemer.
(Rev. Edw. Fulebtwo-der, Pastor).
The following is the, program of di
vine services for the Lutheran Church
of the Redeemer next Sunday:
11 a. m.-The regurar morning ser
vice. The pastor will preach the sec
od sermon in the series, begun last
Sunday. The subject of the sermon
will be the question: "What Will You
Get?" The text i? found in Gal. 6:7:
"Be not deceived-, God is not mocked;
for whatsoever a man soweth, 1 that
shall he also reap." The laws of na
ture change not. On this truth the
farmer sows his grain rand confidenit
ly looks for a harvest in kind. If he
has not planned and worked and
properly prepared the soil, and he
gets a harvest of weeds instead of
grain, we expre"s our jndg
ment by saying: "He got what
he deserved.'' These laws are seen
working themselves out in the lives
of men. According .to God's word, and
we can .not.chanlge dils word, we are
going to get what we sow in kind;
we are going to get what we plan for,
and also what we deserve.
Some one remarked lately that in
the matter of gambling and drinking
our town is as .open as Charleston. I
do not believe this, but if it is, and
some of our citizens know, as they
claim, and do ,not report the same,
then, we have just about such a town
as we deserve. 'Now, Mr. Citizen, if
you know these things exist and you
have sufficient eviaence to convict,
then, you owe it to your citizenship
and to the young men and boys of
this town to .report same. 1 venture
this assertion, if you do not care to
report, and will give your name and
your evidence to any minister of this
town, that blind tiger that you know
of will be helping to build our much
needed roads in a v'ery short time.!
Some viery plain, practical thoughts
will be discussed in the sermon. There
will be good music.
5 p. nt-The Bible school meets.
A large attendance is desired.
