Cliieora Trustees Decline Invitation
From Clinton.?Want New Location.
Greenville, May, 20? Apparently
the long agitated question whether
Chicora college, the thriving institution
for the education of young women,
maintained here under the care
of the seven presbyteries of South
Carolina, was finally and definitely
disposed of by the board of trustees
this evening, when an overture looking
to the removal of the college to
Clinton was rejected and a decision
settled on declaring the sense of the
board to favor the retention of the
, college in this city but the removal
of it from its present site to either
the suburbs or to some satisfactory
location in the city.
Late tonight a member of the board
made the following statement renr.tinn

This action will have to be submitted
to t&e presbyteries of the State, but,
as there was only one dissenting vote
in the board there is no probability
of adverse action on the part of the
presbyteries. The meeting of the
board was characterized by hearty
unanimity and cooperation, and the
settling of the question of the location
of the colleges for p 11 time, the
board thinks, means, we believe, large
things for the future of the college
and for Greenville.
"The executive committee, together
with the president of the college,
was instructed to receive and
digest any offers made and report as
soon as possible to a call meeting
of the board, to decide upon the
permanent site. An overture from
Piedmont presbytery, asking that the

to the removal of the college to Clinton,

WALKER MUST DIE.
3io Hope For Poisoned >Iacon Banker.?Can't
Macon, Ga., May 20.?The attending
physicians when they read the Associated
Press dispatch from Baltimore
to the effect that transplanting of
kidneys might save the life of B.
Sanders Walker, the banker, slowly
dying from poisoning, stated that
such a course in the patient's condition
would be impossible.
"There is not the slightest doubt
but that Mr. Walker will die," said
Dr. M. M. Stapler, one of the physicians
in charge of the case. "The
poison has gone all through his system
and is not confined to the kidneys.
Even if it were only in his
kidneys he would die under anesthetic.
His pulse is 128, nearly double
the normal, while respiration and
temperature at 32 and 98.5, respectively,
about normal. This is very

AUSTIN >0T CAUGHT.
iSaid to Have Been Seen in Jackson
Jacksonville, Fla., May 20 ? Richard
Henry Austin, the negro desperado
and triple murderer, who has
eluded capture for the past four
weeks, was located in Jacksonville, it
is said. He was; recognized by an
Atlantic Coast Line railway fireman
who is a resident of Luray and who
has known the black all his life. A
trap was laid for his capture Saturday
night by the Jacksonville police
but he did not fall into it.
The local authorities are of the
opinion that he has left the city, if he
ever was ucic.
The fireman, whose name could not
be- ascertained, made an engagement
with Austin to meet him at the Union
station Saturday night, it is said.
Afterward he reported the matter to
the police authorities who laid a
trap to catch the negro. Detectives
were concealed at the appointed place
of meeting with instructions to capture
the desperado at all hazards. If
he made thf; uligh-est attempt at
resisting arrest the man stalkers were
commanded to kill him. Everything
was in readiness at the appointed
time but Austin did not turn up.
The local detectives are of the opin
iOD that Austin left this city after
staying here but a short time, fearing
that some one who knew him might
inform on him.
Rest as Xeeessary as Work.
The warm days admonish us -that
care should be takien in expending
physic.il energj-. There is little dan
ger i?i meu uverwurmug tucmaci*ca,
but sometimes a special strain has
to be -endured for a day or two, when
the body becomes tired. With young
people a night's rest will resfore
them, but s.s age comes on a lit!Te
more care should be u9ed. The doctor
may advise a trip to the seashore
or mountains if von hive the money
to bear the expense, but threefourths
of our population ar*> compelled
to stay at home. The question
is how to get the necessary rest at
home. It is not work in field iff
kitchen which burdens you, but "m'S
worry, the constant looking after toTs
or that, the being cumbered with
many unnecessary cares. One goot?
way to rest is.to visit a friend for a
f-ew days. Go where you are wanted.
Let there be no company manners
at all. Sometimes such a visit
will be worth ifaore than pills and
plasters. Then invite some of your
friends to visit you. Get together and
talk about old times and new time?
and all sorts of times. Have better
dinners than usual and let cheerful
ness be the seasoning at every meaf.
After a few exchanges of visits, a
tired mother will feel like a new
woman. Another thing will restore
physical en-ergy. Good food well pre
parea ana xaKeii m muuerautuu win
keep the system in good condition.
Eat only when hunger demands food.
Sleep is also a restorer of strength.
These long afternoon, a half hour's
sound sleep will make a tired housekeepr
feel like .a sixteen year old
gir.. Often at the close of the day
one may feel disappointed and out
of heart. Eight or nine hours sleep
will make a new person out or you.
It is rest, real rest, which will k-eep
you. up. By systematizing your work,
it can he done in half the time usually
required. One studies how to
work and how to accomplish most
work. Remember that rest is as important
as work an^ much thought
should be given to that. When a
wise plan is carried out rest is taken
regularly, youth and elastic;ty of
limbs are preserved and the weaS^
ness of ol:l age is kept in tne back
Way down in Florida two darkies
were discussing as to the color of certain
Biblical personages. One of them
asserted that as Palestine was about

speaker, "St. Peter an' St. Paul an'

Mr. Hanna was extremely poor. She
liked him; but that was all, and he
was well aware of the fact. One evening
he grew somewhat tender and at

"Yes, Tom," replied the girl frankly:
"I am worth about $2,000,000."
"Will you marry me, Helen?'
"Oh, no, Tom; I couldn't."
