THE CITY SCHOOLS.
New Teacher For Hiirli School?Domestic
Science Department and
What it Means.
Miss Arlie C. McCain, of Shorter and
Chicora colleges, and former teacher
of Er-glish and Oratory in Leesville
college, has assumed her duties as
the fourth regular teacher in the
Xewberry High school. Miss McCain
comes to Xewberry very highly re
commended. Besides ner regular
| high school work she will have the '
I privilege of establishing a department !
of oratory in the schools.
Miss Bess Kibler, che popular teacher
of piano at the high school, -has
sixteen pupils and expects others to
join her class. Miss Kibler is a very
strong, and enthusiastic member cjf
the high school faculty, and her work
will be of untold value in creating adj
ditional interest in the school.
! The domestic science room at the.
high school is beginning to appear
very much like a kitchen. A threeburner
oil stove, six single burners,
! tables, dozens of dishes, pans, cups,
knives, forks, spoons, etc., mean ihat
the young ladies of Newberry are to
have scientific and practical training
in the common domestc duties, which
they will in: their lives most likely
! need to perform. j
i Besides being practical, he course
IVioinor a-ivori hv Miss Wall is
I dO UV1U5 -
|scientific and instructive. It includes
1 chemistry, bacteriology, physiology
: and hygiene. The study of such comj
pounds as soda and table salt is just
I as valuable learned in a kitchen as in
;any other laboratory. Chemical tests
for corbobydiate, proteids, and fats
! in foods, the study of the composition 1
and relative values of foods, the effects
of yeast and baking powder from
!a scientific poini of view are a few of
the many valuable cultural, ana interesting
observations in connection
| with a course in domestic science.
(But no feature of the course is more
important than the study of dietetics,
the preparation of suitable and whole- i
some foods for the sick and the well. !

Editor The Herald and News:
Through your paper I am writing this
letter to all of the great grand child- j
ren of Sims Brown, a revolutionary
scout, and his wife Mary Baldrick
A few months ago, one of the great
grandaughters suggested to me that
it would be an act worthy of tiie effort
for us to erect a tomb to his and
his wife's memory.
I at once caught the spirit that
prompted the suggestion, and we be-:

and co-operation that the task
became a social pleasure.

his life that the principles enunciated
in the Declaration of Independence
might be maintained and that
succeeding generations, might enjoy
the fruits of his services in a developed
country, and under a national government
as now administered.
Were -he permitted again to walk up
and down the beaten, paths of yore,
under the resplendent administration
of Wilson, Bryan, Marshal, Clark,
Underwood, McAdoo and the hosts of

HELD "RALLY DAYr
AT SAIXt PAUL'S j
Addresses by Mrs. E. Cronk, W.
A. Hantske and Dr. Geo. B. Cromer
St. Paul's Lutheran church held
"rally day" services yesterday in be- |:
half nf tho Sundflv snhool. The con
gregation overflowed the church.
The first address was made by Mrs.
E. C. Cronk, who spoke on 'The (
Cradle Roll?las Purpose and Object
in the Congregation.'^
W. A. Hantske made a strong talk
to the men of St. Paul's congregation. !
He presented the opportunity and ;
need of closer fellowship of service j
among -:he men of the church.
Dr. Geo.. EL Cromer,, of Newberry,;
was the third speaker His address1
was delivered in his \isual forcible and
inimitable style.* He had a message
for the parents an^ did not leave the
children uninterested. Dr. Cromer
said he preferred to talk to the children
whose interests demanded attention
in this day when the difference of
6,000,000 between 13,000.000 in the
SnnHav crhnnlc: ? .rf 18.000.000 in the !
public schools of the United States

was influencing the young life of the
nation. Dr. Cromer believes the

schools for its religious influence upon 1
Dr. Cromer appealed for more individual
study of the Bible. It is well
enough, he said, to study the Bible in
groups, but the Word of God should
be studied in the home, and he urged 1
i better church attendance on the part j
of parents generally. He said the
hand that rocked the cradle was about
to turn the job oyer to electricity.

Caught It In The Throat.
JVIr. Frank P. Devore, the athletic
! rider of mails on route five of the
' county, came near to a very serious j
! accident in town Thursday. He was*
'on his motor, came suddenly in con-1
| tact with a small rope stretched j
;across the street, corner of Friend and
Calhoun. It was such a violent jar
to him he didn't have a chance iO |
show his usual agility. The rope
J jerked him off and when his head
struck the ground it knocked him unconscious
for a few moments. No serious
results beyond a bruised throat
where the rope caught him. It was i
one of toose unavoidable accidents
I where, if there was a little careless
ness on the part of tfte riaer it was
excusable, as he could not sp^ the
rope in time to escape, owing to the
| sudden turn he was about to make.

Senator Tillman Denies Protest.
Washington, Oct. 4.?Senator B. R.
Tillman gave out a statement in
which he says he is not opposing the
appointment of Frances H. Weston of
Columbia, as district attorney for
South Carolina, but admits that he is \
urging the appointment of Attorney
Thurmond of Edgefield. He says his
agreement with Senator Smith will
The statement follows:
"More than two weeks ago I notified
Senator Smith that I had with
drawn my indorsement of Mr. Sims
and would turn the marshalship over
to him and would confine my efforts
to getting the district attorney's
place for Mr. Thurmond. The two
offices pay the same salary, and senior
senator I thought I had a right
to choose which one I would take. I i
have not protested against Mr. Wes-I
ton's appointment. I have simply
urged Mr. T.hurmond's appointment, i
Senator Smith and I have an agreement
that we will confirm whichever
one is appointed, and I will stand by
that agreement. That is all there is
It is understood that action by the
president on the attorney general's
South Carolina recommendations is

adjust the trouble. It is further understood
that both o? the senators are
holding to an agreement whicji they
made some time ago that there should4
be no dark horse in *he race for district
attorney. Sen?tor Tillman says
that so far as he is concerned there
need be no further applicants for the
marshalship, as he has turned that j
place over to Senator Smith.
Senator Smith declares thkt he
stands by his former statement, that j
he would not oppose J. L. Sims, if the j
latter should be nominated. With the
rcommendation of the attorney gen-"
eral behind him and neither senator
opposing him. Mr. Sims seems* to'
