Poultry Breeders Attention
Attention is called to the commun-!
ity fair to be held in Newberry Nov. j
lOth-llth. All home demonstration,!
marketing, girls' sewing and cooking j
clubs are arranging to put in exhib- j
its illustrative of the excellent work
being accomplished. Some individual
farm exhibits are arranged for, too.
A building has been secured for the
poultry show. Each breeder in the
county is invited to exhibit his fowls.
Na. entrance fee is charged so each
owner is requested to furnish his own
coop which must have doors sufficiently
large" through which to remove
birds for inspection. Some interesting
prizes will be given. In
going over the county the demonstration
agent finds large areas where not
one pure bird can be found. This
pot^try show is being put on that the
people of these districts may see
what fine poultry is raised at home.

the state have formed poultry associations
and *are doing splendidly.
They report that the day of scrub
poultry has passed forever in these
counties. Let's have a number of
fine birds on exhibit. Breeders will
please report to Mr. Mills or Miss
Berrie the number to be exhibited so
that they may have the necessary

War is being waged on turkeys,

sufficient birds were located to fill the
orders on hand. Inquiries for other
poultry products come daily?and on
Sunday, and it is not often that the
club women fail to answer calls for
these orders. Organization has meant
much to these rural women and they
fully realize that the market is the
best medium through which to sell
their varied produce. It seems that
the town people have found it a wonderful
convenience too and the market
.managers hope that they will coftT\Ar?tp

JURY HOLDS SUBER
FOR KILLING NEGRO
Witnesses Give Details of Pontiac
The State, 14th.
The coroner's jury investigating
the death of Silas Cooper, negro,
brought in a verdict last night to the
effect that he came to his death from
gunshot wounds inflicted by George
W. Suber. Witnesses said Suber was
transporting a squad of negroes in a
truck and that he shot cooper in
front of a store at Pontiac last Tues-1
day night. Eye witnesses said Suber 1
was intoxicated and that he talked |
about killing: a before he fired
the fatal shot. The trend of the evidence
showed that Suber shot one of
the men he was taking to some point j
in North Carolina by mistake.
Thurmond Motley, J. R. Dixon, Le- j
roy Lorick and L. E. Smith testified
that they were in Eden's store at
Pontiac 1 uesday*night when Suber
came in and their evidence was prarc
tically the same. They said Suber |
dropped a pistol just before "he enter-;
ed the shop and.that a negro picked,
it up. They testified that Motley ap- j
proached Suber to wait on him and
that Suber said, "I don't want any- i
thing, but will buy some liquor if you j
have it." The witnesses said Suber:
said something about a negro having j
threatened him and that he would
kill the if he did not get him
i first. The witnesses said Suber start- [
ed to leave and when he reached the
screen door he was heard to saw1
"Here's the now" and a pistol i
1 shot rang out. Witness Smith said he '
ran out and s^w Silas Cooper lying
on the ground. He said Suber told;
* * ? 1 _ ^ ,
him to get up ana mat ine negru implied,
"I will get up after a while." 1
The witness said Suber said, "I have
jshot my own negro, I hate that, I
would not have had it to happen fjn
$1,000."' The witness said several nejrroes
picked up the injured nejrro
and placed him on a truck that started
toward Camden. Each witness declared
they did not see any weapon
Ernest Ryan, nesrro said he was
watching a truck at Pontiac when Saber
came up to him and said, ''Some
one has been messing with me all
nierht and I will blow out youri*
brains." Ryan said he begged Suber
not to kill him and walked to the 1
rear of a building, in answer to aj
question Ryan said he left Subcv bo-1
cause he was drunk and was afraid .
he would get killed. ,
George Baxter and Coley Epps, ne- <
groes, said they were in the party
Suber was taking to North Carolina, i
