town of Newberry, "in the business of
handling, dealing in and selling shoes;
and gents' furnishings" or any other
business that may be in violation of*
the alleged contract set out in the
complaint which has been served on
In January, 1910, Mr. Blaustein:
bought out the business of Copeland
Brothers, who were doing a large dry
goods and clothing business, and the;
contract alleged, and which is attach
ed to the complaint, contains the pro
ypsion that Copeland Brothers "bind
themselves for the space of five years,
from the tenth day of January, 1910,"
that they will not' carry on or be in
terested in the same kind of business
in Newberry; it b-eing provided, how
ever, that they might engage in the
business of shoes, exclusively, or in
the business of gents' furnishings, ex
clusively, and the agreement being
contingent upon Blaustein continuing
in business in Newberry.
The complaint alleges that on De
cember 18, 1911, E. B. Copeland be-'

and dollars. The plaintiff alleges tha+.
on February 12 he addressed a comn
munication to Copeland calling atten

that he live up to it, and d-emanded
reparation for damages done to plain
tiff, and demanded that Copeland ac
cede to the demands by a certain time,
but that Copeland has made no reply.'

the speaker, Dr. A. J. Bowers, of New
berry college. His introductory re
i_ rks were v.ry fitting and appro
priate to the occasion.
Dr. Bowers' address to the school
children and to the citizens and school
patrons was very pleasing and happy.
He dwelt on the greatness of Wash
ington and on those things that made
him great, and emphasized the need
of emulating those things which make
for character building. He spoke in
such a plain and direct manner that
the smallest children caught a new
vision of what it is to be great and
honorable and useful.
The little children did their parts
splendidly, and their training reflects
great crfit on' tha teachers of the
primary grades. The children had but
a few rehearsals, but they were lit
tle masters of the situation.
The program as rendered follows:
Youth's Army-School children.

DRAGS IMPROVING ROADS.
Split L.og Drags Are Being Used And
Are Proving Great For Road
'Squire Cauley, of Oaklawn town
ship of the Fork Shoals section, was
in the city Monday and in speaking
of the split log drag stated that great
work was being accomplished by the
drag in the Fork Shoals section. He
stated that the drag is proving an effii.
cient as well as economical device
for the improvement of the roads.
Greenville Piedmont, 20th.
And it is quite common in Newberry
county to use this means of improving
the roads and getting fin.: results. The
latest to report i3 Mr. Y. T. Dickert,
rural carrier ';o. 7 route, who says
that those having done good work on
the roads along his rounds with the
log drags and without which work
some of the roads would now be im
passable, are Messrs. J. F. Hawkins,
Eugene Buzhardt, J. T. Summer, Al
bert Schumpert, and B. P. Hawkins.
Mr. Dickert says that Mr. James W.
Cromer has promised to drag as soon
as the weather permits.
Basketball Monday Night.
Carolina's basketball team will play
against Newberry in the college gym
nasium on Monday night. Newberry's
manager has found it almost impossi
ble to make connections with the Caro
lina manager, this game having been
postponed several times. However,
the game on Monday night is positive
ly assured. Newberry succeeded in
winning from the university in the
ame played at Columbia, but only
by a very narrow margin. Since that
ime both teams have improved won
erfully, and a good and close contest
is imient. The gam'e will begin
earlier than usual so that the Carolina
ten can return the same night. It is
loped that the tubBc in general, as
well as the many basketball enthus
iasts will come out to see what will,
in all probability, be the last game of
the season. The boys have lost but
