For many long years?even before
Prosperity was dreamed of?there has
v _ been a large white house crowning an
eminence that overlooks the present
town. In this home, as monarch of
all she surveyed, lived the subject
of this sketch. Mrs. Clarissa Bridges.
During the ante-bellum days her
slaves tilled the soil for miles around,
but ere long various enterprising men
fancied this particular ground for a
town?and the major portion of it was
solo, and she watched her once rolling
fields give place to a growing town.
Through all the vicissitudes of nearly
a century?she was 92 years of age

and this town, and rejoiced and sorrowed
with those around her. She has
sat by the bedside of alUher loved
ones, save the two granddaughters by
whom she is survived, and comforted
them as they passed through the valley
to the land that is fairer than day.
Notwithstanding all these dispensations
of Providence and the loss of
property she was never known to cornplain.
About six years ago she had the mis*
fortune to fall and break her hip, but
since then, in her rolling chair, she

in cheerfulness to all who came into
contact with her. Mrs. Bridges was
quiet and gentle in manner, kind and
hospitable, and untiring in her loving
service to those in her home. She exerted
an influence in her quiet way
ami will be missed. Like a sheaf of
wheat, full ripe, she has been garner- j

reunited with the loved ones who have
gone before. E. K.

and in order to secure him we had
to fix the hour so that he might leave

The meeting will be held in tne nail

I want every patron of the district and
every other citizen who is interested

whether or not they will do it, but I

PROF. TATE AT CHAPPELLS.
A Fine Country and Fine People^
Talking About Improving School
On Saturday afternoon, in company i
with Prof. Tate, I was at Chappells, j
and Saturday evening at 9 o'clock!
the citizens of the Chappells commu-!
riity assembled in the Baptist church, j
where Professor Tate delivered his il- j
InstrateH Wtiiro ncinor tVio ctoronnti
con The purpose of this meeting was
to confer with the patrons of the
school at Chappells and the citizens
generally, looking to making arrangements
for the erection of a school
building in that district. No definite
6teps have yet been taken but I believe
the people of that community
realize the importance of a good school
in their community and understand
now at what little cost to themselves
they can have this school.
This district has nearly $250,000
worth of taxable property, and nearly
one-half of it is owned by the Southern
railway. It is known that the
Southern railway never objects to paying
taxes for the purpose of improving
the condition of the people through
their territory, and it does seem that
if fi big corporation like this, which
will pay nearly one-half of the cost of
the school building is willing to be taxed
for that purpose, that the people
whr. wonlH ffPt thft immerlifltp results
through such an enterprise would not
The people of this community are
intelligent and progressive and deeply
interested in the development of
their community, and I am satisfied
that when they think over the situation
and the facts as presented by Professor
Tate, that thev will undertake
the building of this school house with
as much unanimity and enthusiasm as
the people of Pomaria have exhibits
ed> and if they do it will only be a
little while before work on the school
house will be commenced.
The fact is that this is one of the
best communities in Newberry coun
ty. The farming lands are fertile, the
homes are up-to-date and the people
intelligent and sociable, and in every
other way it is one of the most delightful
communities in which to live.
If one will go and spent some time in
the homes, he will realize that what I
am saying is absolutely true. It was

home and to spend the night with
Mr. A. P. Coleman, who has one of the
best homes in Newberry county, fitted
up with all of tb? modern conveniences
and surrounded by a fertile
farm, and these two are 110 exceptions,
and both with charming lamilies.
When I visit a community like this I
can not helip but wonder why any one
who lives in the country, and such a
country as this, would ever think of
giving up his country home to move to
-r i. j_l x il 1 M1 j.!

Two Boys From Newberry Club Can

club to Columbia for one day. These
two boys that are mentioned by Mr.
Haddon are to be selected from the
winners in this county to attend the
corn school to be held in Columbia
during tne i\ationai com snow for one
week. More detailed particulars will
be published and sent to the boys by
the county superintendent of education
in a few days.
The following is Mr. Haddon's letter:
Clemson College, S. C., June 21, 1912.
In my last letter I promised to say
something about the prizes sto be
awarded in the corn club this year. I
am glad to announce that, in almost
every county arrangements have been
made for the two boys making the best
records to attend, the National Corn
school to be held at Columbia in connection
with the Fifth National Corn
exposition in January, 1913. I hope
tfl hflVo this arMncomont in avow
county soon. Write your superintendent
to know if your county is going to
send two boys. This will be a free trip
and will be worth more than any prize
that could be given. If you want to
knew more about what the school is to
be. write to Mr. Geo. H. Stevenson,
Palmetto Bank building, Columbia, S.
