a pasture of sufficient size to graze all
of his stock. The sample brought here
is certainly fine.
. It is amcusing to see how certain men
stand around on the streets to watch
the movements of the man they want
to beat, and whenever he is seen talk

after that man and imagine they have
done a wonderous change in the man's

fighting is concerned, he never expect
ed anything than their opposition, and
it therefore does not surprise him, and
further, he woild lose hope if they were

On last Friday there assembled a
nice crowd of picnickers at Martin's
Lake It was a pretty sight, and a dem
onstration of how nice it is for brethren
to dwell in unity. The occasion was we
may say a family gathering, for with
the exception of a few, everybody was
kin, the older people were already kin,
and the younger ones were following in
the foot steps of their parents in tryine
to be kin: some of them that we saw off
to themselves in buggies and seated un
der the trees were not inviting company
to join them in converse, for two is com
pany, and three is a crowd, at any rate,
the writer when going after his horse
happened to approach unobserved a
couple seated in a buggy, and when he
was discovered the reception he receiv
ed from a pair of pouting lips and re
proachful eyes made him feel that if he
appreciated the welcome ie and "Old
Rock" got from those good people he
would "git furder" and that quick, so
After the crowd had assembled and
exchanged greetins', the men engaged
in clay pigeon shooting; there was some
good records made, even a little Gree
leyville preacher had the nerve to shoot
with such veterans as Sam and 'Sy"
Hanesworth, Irvin Plowden. Messrs.
Murray and Fuiton, and old man Lute
Plowden, but nerve or no nerve, J r.
Grier made several hits, and "if" had
had interfered he might have Won. Up
to the time of the writer's leaving,
Messrs. Irvin and E. R. Plowden were
ahead and tied.
Dinner was announced with "Old

invitation down the hill, forgetting his
physical condition, he charged the "Besh

all rightiand such a dinner, the aroma
from the fish pans was indeed enough
to make a man of stone hungry. General
Superintendent, Ben FrIt., had charge
of the fish cooking and he produced the
famous "pine bark stew" which was fit
for the gods, there was fried and stewed

Some two weeks ago THEE TIMES edi
tor was requested to communicate with
Congressman Legare with regard to se
curing from the government fish to stock
the waters of Black River with Bream
and Trout, and in reply to the letter
written, Mr. Legare promptly had for
warded from the Bureau of Fisheries,
some blanks to be tilled out. and which
has been attended to. It would indeed
be a great thing if our waters could be
restocked, and the people would take an
interest in the matter, at any rate there
is a strong probability that the fish will
be sent here next spring, and several
parties interested have consented to give
the fish when they come their attention.
The following is Mr. Legare's letter.

za21nor -rhe itaannng Times:
Because of the very unfavorable
weather conditions prevailing in this sec
tion the past few weeks, this seems to
be a critical period with our planters.
'The possible need of replanting has not
been long suggested, and likewise the
possible time for plowing up first seed is
fast getting away. Within a few days
all will have decided which course to
pursue. Not many farmers in this im
mediate community were so unfortunate
as to have their crops ruined by the re
cet hail storra, but many are suffering
from the continued cool weather, whick
so materially hinders the izerminatior
of the groutaded seed. The complaint o1
poor stands of cotton seems to be quite
general. The prospects of a poor crot
with several months intervening befori
any just idea can be had as to the pric<
of cotton during the coming season. does
at first sight appear discouraiine: but
disastrous indeed must be the attendins
conditions to prevent the farmers of this
section from making an average crop.
Among tbe enterprise's recently in
stituted in our town is an up-to-dat<

point. Mir. Bannister has acquired thE
old grocery stand of W. R. Coskrev, an<

quite a comfort to the force of salesmer
s well as a pleasing effect to the ap
pearance of the store.
The Lyceum '4nagement has con
coi'red the idea of presenine some few
attractions in the graded school audl
toriurn during the summer months. in
stead of conflning themselves the usual
winter season. They have procured for
the month of May the Wilbur Star Con
cert Company, which will give an en
tertainment here on the evening of the
25th. We understand that an attraction
is also booked for June.
Among the events of social interest
happening during the past week, was
the entertaining of the Matron's Book
Club by Mrs. 0. C. Scarborough on Fri
day afternoon last. Upon gathering, the
guests were, pleasantly entertained for a
sho-t while by the hostess, after which
music was rendered by Misses Harper
and Blackburn, Mrs. J. D. Rutledge and
Miss Norris, and a reading by Miss
Annie Rutledge. all of which seems so
eminently appropriate and enjoyable
that little though was given by the
guests to any further mode of amuse
ment. Nevertheless. papers were dis
tributed among tbo guests, containing
twenty-five questions, the answers to
which constituted what was to be called
a "Musical Romance." Mrs. Scarbor
ough read aloud the questions, after
each of which Miss Mabel Harper at the
piano rendered a selection suggestive of
the answer. At the conclusion of this
medley, it was found that four of the
members had tied in answering the
question: Mesdames Lesesne, Lanham,
Davis and Tisdale; in the draw, Mrs.
Tisdale proved to be the lucky contest
ant. Mrs. Scarborough served delight
ful salad, foilowed by ice tea.
Misses Ninna and Lizzie Richardson
and Honor Lang of Sumter, have been
the guests of Mrs. R. C. Richardson dur

and then he paid a high tribute to Miss
Haddon for the manner in which she
conducted the school and the splendid
training she gave to the scholars. He
then invited the patrons of the school up
on the stage, with Miss Haddon seated
in the front the patrons endorsed her
administration. At the request of the
Ipatons Mr. Barrow tendered to Miss
Haddon the principalship of the school
for the next session, but should circum
stances prevent her accepting for the
next term, in very feeling language he
exprssed the hearty welcome which
would always await her in the commun
ity. This h~as been a very sucbessful
school year, and it is largely due to the
patient efforts of the young lady in
charge The community loves her and
is proud of her. VISITOR.
N. B.-On Saturday quite a crowd
gathered at the school house to enjoy a
a picnic, and the people enjoyed meet
ing each other, talking over the farm
prospects, and the various topics for dis
cussion, the young chaps made hay while
the sun shone with the girls, and the old
fellows looked on recalling to themsel
ves the days when they were young also.
The dinn'er was served at about two
o'clock, and such a dinner, one would
not imagine that such dinners could be
gotton up with bacon at 20 cents per
pound, but the people of this section do
not have to go to the packers for their
meat, they make it at home.
The writer happened to get to the
second table, but was fortunate enough
to get between two pretty young ladies,
and they treated him nice. but Mr. Edi
tor, our young friend Joe Morris was
there too, and the way he did eat was a
caution. If he was a camel I should say
he was putting in a supply to take him
over the desert.
At four o'clock Mr. Barrow introduc
ed Dr. I. M. Woods, who gave to the
audience a solendid talk on education.
-The Doctor is at home on this subject as
he has demonstrated his support of the
education of the masses. His speech was
well received. it was teeming with good
advice, brief and to the point.

County Summer School.
The County Board of Education is
considering the question of a four
weeks' summer school for the teach
ers of this county to be held some
time during the summer, provided a
sufficient number of teachers and
those who contemplate teaching will
manifest sufficient interest in the
plan to attend and otherwise help to
make it a success.
The school is possible only in case
a sufficient number of our teachers
will pledge themselves to attend.
Examination after examination is
held and as a rule by far the great
est number win only second and
third grade certificates while many
fail to win any at all.
Many of our teachers need the ad
vantages such a school will offer, for
their own good, as well as indirectly
for the benefit of the people whom
they serve as teacher.
Every teacher should aspire for
higher scholarship, as the deeper the
scholarship the greater the inspira
tion for imparting knowledge to oth
ers. It is due the people you serve
to strive for the most information
Teachers, if you could see such pa
pers as are frequently handed in on
the occasions of teachers' examina
tions, you would see the need of tak
ing advantage of every opportunity
Letters have been addressed to as
many of our teachers and others as
possible the past week and several
answers have been received, most of
whom are delighted at an opportu
nity to attend. You are now ad
dressed through the columns of THE
TIMEs and urged to give this matter
your earnest and prompt attention.
We must have a sufelent number
of teachers and of those who expect
to teach to pledge their support in
this undertaking before the County
Board will feel warranted in making
A school can likely be arranged for
