President Holds Up Carlisle's FItcYrar
Sentence?Heeds Pleas of
Washington, Feb. 28.?Milton A.
Carlisle, for many years one of the
best know bankers in Newberry, will
not begin a five-year sentence in the
federal penitentiary at Atlanta on
March 1 in accordance with a conviction
and sentence of the federal courts
in South Carolina a short time ago for
misapplication of funds. Today E. A.
Carlisle, son of M. A. Carlisle, of Newberry,
came to Washington and with
r\f Smith I
m^iiiutic v*. vuv wv. v
lina delegation in congress, called on
President Taft and made an earnest
plea that the mandate in the case be
stayed until a full investigation could
be made by him. The president was
told that because of his advanced
years and the past excellent record!
which he held special -efforts should be
made to look into the case before the
prison doors closed on Carlisle. The
misapplication of funds, the president
was told, amounted to something like
$400 or $500, all of which had been
made good, and nothing would be
gained by sending Carlisle, now an
old man, to the penitentiary. All the
fnr>te in thft casa carefully eone
over and the president, upon the termination
of the conference, said that
he would request Attorney General
Wickersham to order District Attorney
Cochran and Marshal Adams of South
Carolina to take no further action in
the matter until the case be thoroughly
RECOVERS FROtf GAS POISONING.
>Tr. Jessie K. Tance None the Worse
Mr. Jessie K. Vance, cashier of the
Southern Cotton Oil company, who was
nearly asphyxiated with gas on Monday
night, had practically recovered j
last night from the effects of his experience.
Mr. Vance said last night
that he expected to g-et up today and
to be back at work by tomorrow. Be
yon a a. nine pa.m <tuu uiiuning acnoa- j
tion in the throat he had little dis- j
comfort last night. At times he said
that he felt a wandering sensation, especially
when he tried to walk.
Mr. Vance said that on Monday
night about 11 o'clock he went to the
bath room to take a bath, and that
shortly after he had gotten into the
tub lie smelled gas, but imagined that
it came from another part of the building.
Later on some on? knocked at
the door of the bath room and asked
him if the gas was escaping. Mr.
Vance said he took a quick look at the
gas burners and fancied they were all j
right, and answered that there was no
gas -escaping in there. He said that
the next thing he knew was that he
was out of the tub and people were
working over mm.?Aews ana ^uuriei. j
Use Split Log Drag.
Just how the mail carriers managej
to make th?ir rounds with the present
condition of roads is a little remarkable.
We drove out on Wednesday af- j
ternoon to McCrary school, and trav-1
- J VinwiA rnaH us far as
eieu cue uuuui? iiwuc ?- ?
Mr. 0. H. Lane's. This road is usually
a very good road but is now one continuous
mud hole from the time ^ou
leatfe the brick pavement on Main
street. We returned from the school
by the Pomaria road, entering it at the
fhe mile post. It is in the same condition,
and it was about all two horses
j could do to pull the buggy. If these
roads are dragged ana some uuico
filled in before the clay begins to harden,
they will pack and probably be
good roads until next winter, but they
are in condition right now for the most
effective use of the drag. We suppose
same is true of all the roads in the
county and with the continuous rains
it is almost impossible to expect any!
other conditions. It is very important j
now that the split log drag be used j
very generously just as soon as the;
conditions are right for its use.

vice. The pastor will preach the second
in the series of special sermons.
The subject of the sermon will be:
"A Man's Vote." This will not be a
political sermon, but at this time when
county, State and national affairs are
coming before- us w^ should consider
some things that relate to our citizenship
as a Christian people. The Bible
is full of the duties and responsibilities
of Christian citizenship. In the
text that we shall use, Jesus said to
a Jew, living under the cruel and de.
spised Roman government, "Kenaer j
therefore unto Caesar the things which
be Caesar's."?Lk. 20:25. At least
five blessings which the government
gives, and five duties which every citizen
owes will be presented. "It is a
part of the function of the Christian
church to educate, inspire, and direct
its members in such ways as will the
better fit them for the high duties of
citizenship." Some things that citizens
should hear and consider will be
spoken in plain words.
4 p. m.?The Sunday school meets.
The Easter music will be practiced.
All are requested to be present. |
7.45 p. m.?There will be a service
of unusual interest Special music has
been arranged for the> occasion. Mrs.
E. C. Cronk, who is in touch with the

In Dresenting the Margaret Mayo
comedy, "Baby Mine," at the city opera
house on Friday, March 8, Manager
*7":n. A. Brady, under whose direction
it is produced, calls attention to the'
fact that it not only ran for an entire
y-?;if at Lal/s theatre, New York, but '
Criterion theatre in London, England,
playing to capacity houses nightly,
where so much anti-American prejudice
exists. Still, they fairly search,
for adjectives to praise this worthy
Is>ich-nrnvnlrin^- American nlav. "Baby
The plot of "Baby Mine" was suggested
to Miss Mayo through the reading
of an article in a Chicago newspaper
to the effect that married women
of that town frequently deceived
their husbands by palming off infant*
from foundling asylums as their own
offspring, and that the husband would
go through life proudly innocent of
"Wlhy shouldn't "Baby Mine" be a
big success?a pronounced success?
with such genuine material as an utter
laugh and fun maker? There is everything
to the play to warrant the
general opinion tnat n is ine greatest
ever, and this is "going some" when
we recall "Charley's Aunt" and "Too
Much Johnson," and a couple of other
comedy plays that earned falne and ' !
made records. But "Baby Mine" is
the greatest of them all, and will enjo^
a long life and world-wide popularity.
Ask the opinion of any one who haa
seen this side-splitting comedy, and /
V f V -A.
who will see it again, and then again
if possible. Fun! Mirth! There is no
end of it It is continuous riot and
scream, and even the young and unmarried
people quickly recognize the
possibilities and realisms of every situation.
It is really education and an
intuition of what the young wife ex
periences in married life before and
after joyous motherhood.
Yes, it brings back the limit of happy
moments, of the married man, -when
he is informed that he has become a
father, and is suddenly awaked to new
responsibilities that are his, and
which he cheerfully assumes. "Baby
Mine," "Baby Mine!" It strikes most
of us deeply, and the fun, laughter
and intense delight of the audience as
the play goes on, best tells the tale of

copal diooese of South Carolina his
beautiful residence in Aiken for the
use of the diocese in any way they
may see fit to utilize it, and it has

a college and use the Edmunds

that a movement is now being started
