A PLEASANT DINEI.
The Heads of Departments at Xollo
hon Mill Present Superintendent
The bosses and the superintendent
at Mollohon mill have decided to en
gage in a little welfare work at the
mill during the coming year, with the
object in .,iew of secur:ng a club
house in the highest sense of the
meaning of that word. The first work
is to organize the heads of the sever
al departments and g.ct them united
and interested in the work.
The first step in Ih:s direction is
in the shape of social gatherings at
the homes. One of these was held
at the residence of M-. J. E. Mer
chant, boss of the c3oth room, on last
Friday night. An elegant dinner was
served and the follow:ng were pres
W. D. Stillwell, carder: R. V. Por
ter, spinner; P. A. Howard, weaver;
T. Burton, master of mechanics; J. E.
Merchant, clothroom overseer; E. S.
Summer, superintendent; D. E. Schum-,
pert, bookkeeper; B. L. Dorrity, book-!
keeper, and M. F. Grimes, card erec
This dinner Nas I'l bonor of Sup
erintend-:-nt Elmer S. Summer. Mr. E.
H. Aull was invited to attend this din
ner and at the conclusion of the repast,
and in behalf of those who hold posi
tions.in the heads of the departnients
of the mill, Mr...Ai.l presented to Mr.
Summer, as a token of the regard of
those who are laboring Nith him, a:
bleautiful old gold ring Ii, present
ing the ring Mr. Aui spolie briefly on
the advantages to be gained by such
gatherings and the benefits to be de
rived from gettitia tLsether socially,
and endeavored to eacoirage those
present to keep up -Lhe good work in
which they are en.azed.
In presenting the ring he offered
the following sentimn6nt to Mr. Sum
As "to the noble mind
Rich gifts wax poor when givers prove
So does a gift fra.ant with the re
membrance of friendship carry with
it to the recipient a joy far beyond'
the .power of rikhes to buy. At thisl
season we celebrate the giving to the!
world of its greatest gift, and this is
essentially the season of gi'ving. When1
good will and well-wishes inspire the*
gift, and when it is accepted in the
spirit in which it is given, the true
spirit' of the Yuletide is manifest.I
This occasion,is a happy illustration
of this sentiment.
:.~r. Aull told Mr. Summer that th- :e
who presented this token wished him
mighty well in 1912, but begged to
remind him that the only way he
could succeed as superintendent of
the great industry he had in chai-ge,!
was' to secure the sympathy and co
operation of those who were his lieu-.
tenants in the work, so to speak, and
also the sympathy and cooperation
of these who stood behind the guns
the, great army of men and women
who stood from early morning until
late at evening, and from day to day,
behind the looms and at the spindles,
and commended him in his efforts to
scure that cooperation. The success
of the~ commanding officer depends up
on the faithfulness and loyalty of the
privates in the ranks, and the same
is true in the great battles of indus
Mr. Summer is a young man who
has fitted himself for the work and
all indications point to his success in
the management of the forces at th.e
The men present at this social func
tion are all young, intelligent, en
thusiastic, competent, and will keep
the wheels of industry rolling.
It is a fact often commented on,
that at the Mollohon mill and at the
Newberry cotton mills are to be found
a high class of help, and these insti
tutions have had that reputation since
the first wheels were turned. It is
expected they will continue to bear
At a meeting Sunday afternoon of
the Philathea class of the First Bap
tist church the following were elected
officers for the ensuing term: Miss
Gertrude Reieder, president; Miss
Anita Dadidson, vice president; Miss
Bettie Bradley, secretary; Miss Annie
Ruff, treasurer; Miss Nell D)avis, mis
sionary treasurer; Mrs. W. H. Hunt,,

Electrocutioni versus Hanging.
Hanging is a hungling barbarous
mode of executing criminals. I think
electrocution is an improvement on
the old way. The State owes it to her-.
self and to those convicted of capital
offenses to see their exit is as hu
mane as practicable. I hope, there
fore, that the legislature at it next sit
ting will substitute electrocution fo2
WORKING ON PANAMLA CANAL
A. Chris. Garlington Talks Interest
ingly of Great Work in Which
He Has Part.
Mr. A. C. Garlington, now one of the
great number of those engaged in the
great work .f digging the Panama
canal, who has been spending the
Christmas holidays at his home in
Newberry, is, as are all those who
have gone from Newberry to the out
lying territories being developed by
the United States, enthusiastic in talk
ing of the great work being accom
The digging of the Panama canal,
cutting in half the western hemisphere
and uniting the Atlantic and the Paci
fic oreanS, is one of the greatest un
dertakings ever attempted by the Unit
ed States, or any other nation. Mr.
Carlington went on the work, in the
gove-:ar.Nnt service, about thirteen
months ago, during November of 1910.
He is engaged i,n the work of the hy
draulic excavation plant, and is in the
electrical dpartment. Mr. Garlington
took the course in this line of work
at Newberry college, and was after
wards with the telephone companies,
being in Nashville in telephone work
at the tim.e he secured the government
Contrary to what would naturally
be expected, 'Mr. Garlington says the
sanitary conditions on the work are
most excellent, and that there has
been very little fever or other sick
ness. There are the most improved
hospitals, he says,~and a doctor at
each station, and the general .health
conditions are fine.
The hotel accommodations for those
engaged in the work, he says, are
good, and those accustomed to the
best of fare in this country feel no
deprivation along this line.
Speaking of the work, Mi. Garling
ton says about four-fifths of it has
been completed, and it is expected the
canal will 'be open for navigation by
June 1, 1913. From 5,000 to 6,000
Americans are engaged in the work,
and some 35,000 native laborers.
Mr. Garli-ngton says the fortications
*at both ends of the canal are well un
der way, and that the bigeguns are
already in evidence.
.Mr. Garlington is a nephew of Gen
eral E. A. G-arlington, of the United
States army, and stopped over in
Washington on his way home to see
his uncle. He will return to the can
al via New Orleans, in time to report
for duty on January 23.
He is a sturdy believer in the lock
system which is being used, saying he
doesn't believe th~e canal could ever
have been completed successfully un
der any other system. He is delighted
with 'the work and with the country.
