They Did Nicely.
There was presented at the graded
eboo auditorium last Friday evening
Th Swetest Girl in Dixie" by the
- pp Pinean'i to an udi
iic i should havb been larger
because the performers dit! their part
well. Miss Reaves, as an old servant,
was splendid, and her consort "George"
with his nervousness was made for the
part. Mr. Toomer, as Ci. Howard,
epicted a gentleman of the old school
who had seen better days but. who in
his porert v was as proud as Lucifer.
ll Huson was a typical Soutlern
bassie when with her Northern 1ousin.
Mr. Hu'zins, and Miss Geddiugs as
the sister of the crafty and greedy
mouer lender who attempted to coerce
Barbara into a marriage with him, car
id out their lines to perfection. The
imusic between the acts was a delight
Eul addition to the play. Professor Pugh
In*J his companions in this nice little 1
Irama can well feel proud of their work.
As before said they should have had a
arrer audience, but many from here
vent to Sumter the night before to see
:he Chocolate Soldier and no doubt this
ecounted for the absence of some. We
re glad. however. that these young
adies and gentlemen from Pinewood

Should De Investigated.
The question in the Summerton see
ion at this time is, are there any in
:endiaries lurking around in the com
unitv. if there are how are they to be
overtaken and dealt with? The com-f
11nnily has suffered from two fires with-i
n one week. each the barns of promi
,ent. farmers, m'en who farm on quite a
cale. and employ a considerable num
>er of hands. On Saturday night a
eek ago the barn belonging to Mr.
ouis T. Fischer was destroyedtogether
ith its contents. consisting of feedstuffs
.d farming implements. The loss is
stimated at about S1700. but fortun
,tely Mr. Fischer had insurance amount
g to $1000.
Then on last Thursday morning the
arn of Mr. Thomas Gentry, on what t
mas formerly known as the "Sublett"
lace, went up in smoke, and he carried
o insurance. The loss is hard to esti
ite. as Mr. Gentry had much food
tuffs, farming implements, and num
ers of other things in the barn. We
re told that he thinks $500 may cover
is loss. t
Those who we have talked with do
ot seem to have any doubt but that
hese fires were set; the barn of Mr.
'ischer being insured may cause the1

For someiimet past considerable
comment has been made that Sum
werton is not directly represented in
Our coutity paper; the outcome be
ing that the only news published
eoucerning the tovn, was gathered
from time to time by the Manning
ites, who are constantly ; coming and
zoing. They, however, always enjoy
themselves too much to turn their
Attention to anything more than the
tartling occurrances. Not since the
entrance of the newlv elected town

york begun by the previous admin- t

o have similar work done on other C
treets. This causal mention is
nerely a "straw to show which way c
he wind blows," and your inexperi- C
nced correspondent must pass on n
o other items, lest he might require U
oo much forebearance at the hands t
f our esteemed editor. a
Mr. George Joseph is having a s

Gambling In Wood.
"To most people my business would
seem to be devoid of chances," said a
-dealer in fine woods, "yet as a matter
of fact I know of nothing that Is more
of a gamble. On every log of wood we
buy we take a chance that the inside
Is as good as the outside. At a recent
auction of fine woods in London my
partner and I paid $9,000 for a mahog
any log that looked all right so far as
we could tell. If the inside was sound
we stood to make a good profit, but
worm holes or rotten spots at the core
woukd mean a heavy loss. Not until
we got the log to this country and got
it opened up could we be certain. As
a matter of - fact this particular log
was perfect, and we cleaned up $3,000
on the deal. But it was gambling pure
and simple."-New York Sun.
Not- From Politeness.
This was heard in an overcrowded
Boston elevated train:
"Say, Dick," said the young man
.whose football tactics had won him a
strap in the rush-"say, Dick, I've
been riding in on the 'L' every morn
ing except Sundays and holidays for
two years, and I've never given up a
seat to a lady yet."
"You're a polite one," sneered Dick.
"Nothing of the kind," retorted the)
young mat. "I've never had a seat to
give up."-Boston Post.
"Ddy what makes your nose so
dreadfully red?" asked a little boy of
his father one day at dinner.
"The east wind, of course!" the
father answered grut!ly. "Pass that
decanter and don't tailk so much." .~
"Yes. Tommy," said the boy's moth
er sweetly, "ps your father the east
wind and be careful not to spill any__
on the tablecloth!"-London Miail.
.H is "Turnout."
Cierkley-Isn't this earlier than your
usual time for going home?
Barkley--Yes, but my wife said If I
came out by the 3:45 she'd meet me
with the carriage.
"I didn't know you kept a horse and
"Er-er-It's a baby and carriage."
