of a gingham apron tied around her i
neck amd a seven pound rock -ec-ured [
in the body of her apron. Mr*. Mary j

recovered 35 feet down stream. The
village of Lando, in Chester county,
was stirrd by the affair.
Mrs. Robertson left Wylie Camp-1
"bell's house at Lando about 2 o'clock I
apparently in a state of great nervous j
ness. She borrowed an apron fromj
Mrs. Campbell which was afterward j
found tied around her neck at the!
bottom of the stream.
Mrs. Robertson is said to have made
threats recently to kill herself but
the villagers paid little heed to her
Oil yesterday her husband left for
Columbia to stay some time and this
seems to have precipitated the deed.
She is said to have claimd that she
had no friends and that the only and
dearest friend in the world was goin?

She removed her shoes and had

been a week before her body would
have been fou'nd. When she leaped
into the stream the noise attracted
considerable attention from some
boys that were fishing further down
the stream. They immediately made
an investigation, which led to the
discovery of the shoes on the bank.
The alarm was spread and an immediate
search instituted. Mr. Hefley. I
an expert diver, was near, and he be- j
gan diving and soon brought the body;
to the surface. This made the 11th .
person that he had pulled from the ;
It was at first thought that the ,
drowning had been the result of violence
on the part of some outsider
and Sheriff D. E. Colvin and Coro-!
nr J. Henry Gladden, along with
Deputy C. Y. Young, were rushed to
the scene in an automobile. Coroner
Gladden made a careful investigation
of the body after empaneling J"
a jury, with G. B. Heath as foreman. ^
He could find no marks of violence ~
save a confusion on the nose which
was attributed to its striking a root
or rock at the bottom of the race.

We presume there never was a ^
newspaper in any locality that gave \ "
all the local happenings. It is often j
that someone comes or goes about j
which the reporter does not know.; .
It happens that the family is missed i
several times. They get the impression
that Ue editor does not care
to mention them. This is a mistake.
In most country towns the local workis
the hardest work connected with a
newspaper. A man may De a goou; (

the local work, and vice versa. Editorial

DK. WALLACE BACK.
s >~ow Keady to Complete His Historical
Spartanburg Journal, 29th.
Dr. D. D. Wallace, professor of
conomics in Wofford college, has reurned
after several weeks research
^ork in the great libraries of Washngton,
Philadelphia and New York,
n collecting further data for his
nanuscripts on the life of Henry Lauens
which he proposes to have pub- i
ished in book form within the next :
ew months. Dr. Wallace in speaking
if his visit and researches said this i
Qorning that he found the libraries j
well filled with Southern historical
ketches and in fact there was more
nformation about the life of Henry
,aurens than he could possibly ui?.
)r. Wallace has his work about com
ileted and his visit was made for the *
mrcose of securing data concerning 1
inly the latter part of the greatj(
outherner's life which he could not
jrocure south of Washington.
Students of history are greatly inerested
in the life and works of (
ienry Laurens and the contribution
if Dr. Wallace will no doubt be one
if the popular works of history pubished
within recent years. Henry
-aurens was the greatest southern
;tatesmen during the revolutionary
>eriod. He was president and practi ally
ruler of South Carolina during
he first months of the revolution. ;
