Paxville, S. C., May 14, 1911.
The town is peculiarly well situated
that has easy access to numerous good
fishing resorts. and still escapes the
charge of being located "in the swamp."
Summerton is ten miles from the San
tee, and yet how short is that distance
to the faithful disciples of Sir Isaac.
tFor the past two weeks the many fish
nonds have been frequented by the
sportsmen of this community, and each
seems to have his own favorite place.
Harper's Lake, Prince's Pond, Scott's
Lake, Shell Landing,.Moore's Old Mill
and others have all been given trials
some with more and some with less
success. One gentleman residing in
town is reported to have relieved
Prince's Pond of forty-five fish one
evening during the past week. A party
composed of the Summerton Mercantile
Co. and their employees went to Prince's
Pond on Wednesday evening last, and
the fish-fry was scarcely more enjoyed
tha~n was the' ride home by moon-light.
Such excursions are to be expected
now that a portion of the dust has been
laid. On Saturday evening a light rain
preceded by a very heavy cloud fell
here: it is said to have been very heavy
two or three miles south of this place.
The cloud proved to carry more wind
than anything else, and ended in quite
a little storm.
The farmers would probably have ap
reciated a little more rain, but there
are some at least who are making good
use of the otherwise good weather.
Just at present there are in process of
construction two fine dwelling houses,
whose progress have no doubt been en

Monday, May 1, being "Fleld's Day"
at Clemson all academic work for the
day was suspended with. This day is
set apart on the college calendar for
track and field athletic contests. The
only contest for the day, however, was
a track meet between the University of
Carolina and Clemson. Both teams de
serve credit; and Clemson carried the
honors by a score of 98 to 19.
Clemson defeated Furman University
in Greenville on Monday afternoon by
a score of 6 to 4. The game was inter
esting throughout with the Furmanites
in the lead up to the ninth inning.
The last attraction on the Clemson
Lyceum Course was given on the even
ing of May 1, by the Lyric Glee Club.
The hearty applause rendered by those
present gave evidence of the excellence
of the entertainment. It is to be hoped
that Clemson's Lyceum Course for next,
season will be as good as the past one.1
On May 2 and 3 Clemson entgrtained

themselves as being very favorably im
