south of Florence. They will as soon
as possible add to this double track,
beginning at the north end of the Santee
River trestle, just south of Gourdin's
and continue it on into Florence!
This 102 miles of track is the most im-,

truck, as well as all truck from around,
Charleston and the south, is moved. j
The contract for the cement and

track on that part of the main line.
^ 1 In order to meet the great demand
for transportation in the freight traffic
department of this great system. It
might not be amiss to state that the !
Coast Line officials only last week
placed an order for equipment to the
value of hundreds of thousands of
dollars. The order was placed is as
' Ten Pacific type superheated pas-'

freight engines of the latest improved j
superheated type, twelve seventy-foot
steel passenger coaches and eight seventy-foot
steel combination cars for!
service on the through passenger;
trains, one thousand ventilated freight
cars of what is known as the A. C. D. j
, type, three hundred flat cars and I
fifty ballast cars. This new equip- j

pecially with reference to the engines
and freight cars for the increased demands
caused by an increase in j
freight traffic surpassing the expectations
of the most sanguine has caused
some little inconvenience, and while
it has kept the management on the
l alert much of the time to supply tne j
demand and keep freight moving as
it should, there has yet been heard of
* iio "car famine" or tie-up in freight

Further improvements planned for
the year, announcement of which has
been made, and as stated above, is included

. .Ty Cobb's All Star's ys Newberry.
Last Friday morning the college
team went down to Greenwood to
meet the famous Ty Cobb and his All
Stars. Two games, at 10.30 a. m., and
3.30 p. m. had been scheduled, but the
rain fell so steadily during the morning
that the first game had to be called
off and it looked impossible to play 1
rthe second. But the sun did his best,
i and with the aid of several loads of
sawdust the field was put in fair condition.
The game had been well adi
vertised and a record breaking crowd
would have been ou hand had the
- - Ac M-OO. nmrp I
weatiier uecu. ian. no n. ..w,a than
600 people were present.
The game was interesting and hard
fought at all stages. Ty's team broke
into-the scoring column in the fourth
inning, when Eidson hit a man, passed
a man, and 011 a fielders choice
the bases were choked; smart hitting
and a passed ball by Shealy sent four
men across the pan. Home runs by
Tommy McMillan of New York Ameri- J
cans and Ty Cobb with a man on i*
each case gave the All Stars their
total of eight runs..
Eidson, first man up in the fifth
drew a pass, annexed second on a
passed ball, came across with Newberry's
first "run on Floyd's slashing

striking out eight m-en in the four j

we have a great college team,
with only a few weak spots, which
Coach Hollo way will endeavor to cor-j
rect in the next few days, a team which
deserves the town people's hearty support.
Furthermore the opportunity of seeing
Ty Cobb has not given Newberry
the slip, for he asurred the management
that "he was onlv too anxious to
come and would play the preceding or
following day he plays in Columbia.
