JUDGE THOS. S. SEASE.
Son of Newberry County, Who is Holdi

Judge Thomas Sidney soa.sc, wno is
holding ilie spring term of the general
sessions court for Newberry, is a
son of Newberry county, and lived ia
Newberry until after his election as
solicitor of the old seventh circuit, of
which Newberry was then a part. Ha

and later attended Newberiy
college. H graduated from the South
Carolina college with the degree of
B. A. He studied law at the South
Carolina college, and was admitted to
the bar in May, 1892. After graduation
he returned to X:\vberry, and was

been among the most distinguished
jurists of the State courts of the nation.
Chief Justice John Belton
O'Neall and Chancellors Job Johnstone
and James J. Caldwell were Newberry's
contribution to the bench before
and along about the middle of the last
century. In later years Chief Justice
Pope, of Newberry, who died only re- j
cently, adorned the supreme bench of,
the State. Judge Sease is Newberry's >
only other son who has been a mem-j
bar of the State's judiciary.
.Tiidee Sease was regarded as one of
the ablest and most fearless prosecut- i
ing officsrs of the State. As a judge, |
he is bringing the same ability and;
fearlessness into play which charac- j
terized him as solicitor. He dispatches>
the business of the court rapidly and;
with ease, and at the same time is j
zealous of the rights of the citizen on;
trial and of the rights of the States, j
He is ready with his rulings, and firm \
in his decisions.
Judge Sease's many friends in the i
county of his nativity, and the county j
in which he began his ascension of the
judicial ladder, are glad to have him;
in their midst again, and are delighted;
in the success which is attending his i
duties upon the bench.

K. II. Aull reviews the organization
d! the boys' corn club for Newberry,
and speaks of the bright prospects for
a successful club this year, as follows:
"We now have forty-three boys in
the Newberry corn club, and I hope;
that we will g. 1 the other seven, at 1
least, to make-the fifty within the next!
"Col. Watson, commissioner of agri
culture, has arranged for the boys
who enter the corn clubs of the va-!
nous counties to participate in the
[.rizes awarded by the State in the
State contest, and will S3nd all of the'
joys manuals and instructions.
"I desire to call attention to the lib- I
E*ral offer of the Commercial bank, J
through its president, Mr. John M.
tvinard, of sufficient, well-selected, improved
corn for seed for each boy who
enters the contest. This gives each
Doy a good variety of seed corn, which
lias been thoroughly tested and im

I understand it, which will make it peculiarly
suited for the boys of Newberry.
"There will be a number of other
prizes and they will be well worth the
effort of each boy -"n the Newberry
club. As soon as the club is completed
and the prizes announced, I am going
to call a meeting of the boys in the
club to be held in Newberry at which j
meeting I will invite all those who!
have offered prizes to make short j
calks to the boys. Commissioner^ Watson
has also promised me to attend
the meeting and to give the boys a
word of encouragement.
"I do not want a boy in this contest
who is not willing to go in with a determination
to win and to do the very
best that he can to that end, and when
this meeting is called I want every
boy to be present The time is growing
short in which to enter, and if
there are any others, I would be
pleased to have their names sent me
Dr given to Mr. S. M. Duncan."
Skovgaard Friday >'ight.
The Skovgarrd Concert party will I
ippear in Holland Hall Friday evening,
the 22nd inst, as the next attraction
of the college lyceum course.
These great and now famous musi3ians
need no introduction to a Newberry
audi-snce. Skovgaard entertained
here last season and won a host of
idmirers. He is, in the fullest sense of
:he word, a master of the violin, and J
is able to bring forth pathos and joy, I
happiness and sorrow, in a most per-j
feet manner. His playing is ind-eed j
abov-e criticism. Miss Wright is an
attractive entertainer of the first orier.
Her sweet, smooth mezzo-so
prano is particularly pleasing and will
no doubt be a delight to all New-berrians.
Miss McClung is the pianist
Df the party, and is an exceptionally
?apable accompanist. Her work last
rear is remembered pleasantly.
The concert will no doubt be the!
musical event of the s-eason at New- j
berry and the music-loving people j
here should take advantage of the j
great opportunity thus given them.
The concert will begin promptly at
3:15 Friday night, the 22nd inst.

after a long suffering illness of three
months, the last two of which were
spent at the home of Dr. and Mrs. Gilder,
after his return from the hospital
in New York, where he spent the first
month of his critical illness. He had
remarkable vitality, lingering many
days after all hope had long gone 1
from family and friends and his
death was momentarily expected, but
the spark held out until it finally died

His dying admonition to his friends
and former companions, and his ad^

that he hims- If had not reformed and4 *
lived a better life in his earlier years.
