COUNTY BORROWS MONEY.
Commercial Bank Loans County $25,-!
000 j?t 4.95 Per Cent per
Sometime ago the supervisor and
the county commissioners asked the
banks of Newberry to submit bids for
furnishing to the county the $25,000
loan authorized by the legislature. It j
is a pretty good size transaction and j
the willingness of the banks at home i
to co-operate in securing the money, j
is an evidence of the good ereun m .
the: county as well as is the low rate
of interest at which the money was i
secured. The loan was made through |
the Commercial bank at 4.95 per cent, j
per annum. Unfortunately most of
this money will be used in paying;
1 debts already made and it will be on-1
I "y a little while until the county will;
> . cciln be 0:1 the credit basis.
31R. GEORGE KOO> KILLED.
Fell Between Cars on C., & L.
Train Just After Leaving the
Mr. Goor^p Roid Koon, a young'
whit-i man 23 years old, was killed
AT,-vnr1nv n i cli f liotWPOTl 10 fllld 11
o'clock, by a freight train on the C.,
X. & L. road, near the overhead
bridge in Boundary street. It is said i
that he had been drinking heavily with
a friend during the day.
Monday night he went home and
cVinntino- his r>i?tnl in thf* hOUSe '
w cl^> oiivui.uj, li -
when ho was induced by a friend to
leave the home. Ho and his friend
walked together toward town. As they
reached the depot young- Koon said
that he was going to Columbia on the;
train then leaving the station. His
friend tried to persuade him not to attempt
to board the train, but without
avail. Mr. Koon swung on the train
and after riding a short distance fell!
off between the cars, the wheels run- j
ning over him, crushing his legs and
otherwise mangling him. He lived
about an hour after the accident. Dr.
T. W. Smith was called to his assist-1
ance, but the physician was powerless
to save the life of the doomed
man. Mr. Koon was able to give his
name and addiess and knew thej
friends who had gathered at the spot, j
as he retained consciousness.
The body was taken to the undertaking
establishment of P. F. Baxter
& Son, where the body was prepared
for burial, preparatory to being taken
Tuesday to the home of his parents. !
The inquest was held at Baxters
Tuesday morning by Coroner .T. H.
Chapp^ll. There was nothing else to
do but render a verdict in accordance;
with the facts as everybody was sat- J
isfied that the deceased was responsi-1
ble for his own death and that the I
train crew were entirely blameless, i
The verdict was that George Reid j
Koon came to his death by being run >
over by freight train Xo. 13, on the
C., N. & L. road.
The remains were shipped Wednes- j
day afternoon to Chappells, on the
2.48 Southern train, for burial at Soule J
Chapel, where other members of the j
family are buried.
Mr. Kaon must have had a premonition
of his early death, for just about
two weeks before his dreadful ending
he had told his brother Walter that if
he should be the first of the twi to
die he wanted to be buried by the side'

The deceased was of pleasant man- j
ners when sober, but while under the
influence of whiskey he was reckless.;
He was unmarried. His father and'
mother, Mr. and Mrs. William Koon, j
good people of West End, were the
parents of thirteen children; nine of :
whom were sons. One of their sons, j
Ben, died of typhoid fever at Helena I
about eight years ago. Another son,
Butler, died suddenly at McCormick

Ready to Gir'e Them When Directed
The country superintendent of education
gives the following for publication:
"I have received the following lettor
from the State librarian, and the
books have also been received. It will
be observed that the library to which j
these books are to go, is to be designated
by the legislative delegation of
the county. For their information, I
would state that there are 35 rural
libraries in this county, and whenever
they designate which library is to receive
the books, I will be very glad to
turn them over. I can not help observing
that it seems to me a-very
foolish resolution, [t would be allright
if the resolution had provided
each library with a copy of these

the county will be a discrimination
in favor of some one of t8e libraries.
But this is a matter which is left entirely
to the delegation, and as they
are responsible for the passage of the
resolution, I presume that they are
willing to become responsible for the
giving out of the books. The following
is the letter: ,
"Be it resolved by the Senate, the
House of Representatives Concurring:
"That the State librarian distribute
fifty copies each of Butler's Cavalry,
and Bench and Bar, by U. R. Brooks;
and fifty copies of Reconstruction by
John S. Reynolds. A copy of each to
the Citadel, South Carolina university, j
Clemson college, Winthrop college and !
Cedar Springs Institute for the Deaf
and Dumb, and one copy each to each
county superintendent of education, to
be placed by him in a school library
in his county, to be designated by the
legislative delegation of the county."
Adopted in the senate February 16,
Adopted in the house of representatives

Very truly yours,
L. H. LaBorde,
In electing as its president, Mr.
John M. Kinard. the chamber of commerce
of Newberry has honored itself.
Mr. Kinard is one of the foremost citizens
of the State. He has served as
president of the alumni of the State j
university and is now president of the j
State Bankers' association. He is in
and of himself one of the truest and
best men in the State. He bears the
name of a noble father who was kill
ed with his face to the enemy on tne j
14th of October, 1864. Capt. "Gus" ;
Dickert, the game old warrior who
penned the history of Kershaw's immortal
brigade, says of Capt. Kinard:
"He was one of the finest line officers
in the command, a good disciplinarian
and tactician, and a noble-hearted,
kind-hearted gentleman of the 'old
school." " The description applies to ;
his son, and we feel sure that the city j
of Newberry will progress under his1
