The question of financing the county

the delegation a statement that can be
relied upon and upon which they can
intelligently act. Between now and the

The home of Mr. "Jack" McFaddin,
about six miles west of Manning was
destroyed by fire last Wednesday after
noon. Mr. McFaddin was in his field
some distance away, and hands were
picking cotton near the house, Mrs.
McFaddin was in Manning shopping.
Nothing was saved. A bout three
weeks ago an attempt was made to set
fire to this house. and it is thought by
many that this firc was the work of an
incendiary. The building was two
story with eight rooms, built about
three years ago. Insurance on build
ing was $1750 and on the contents $750.
Mr. McFaddin had leased the place to
Mr. James Haley for another 3-ear, and
Mr. Haley was nearby plowing when
the fire occurred. The loss is a heavy
one to Mr. McFaddini as the insurance
will not cover the loss by a considerable

"The World The Flesh And The Dev

a fortune. The scheme is entrusted to
a nurse who has been wrongfully treat
ed by her husband, has a strong moth
erly feeling for the mother of the leg

structions *of the unnatural father,
which results in after years in compli

Capt. D. J. Bradham, pension com
missioner for this county, requests that
we urge a compliance with the resolu
tion adopted by the general assembly
relating to the compilinz of a bona fide
list of all confederate soldiers and their
widows now living in this county, irre
spective of whether they receive pen
sions or not. The pension board will
meet the first Monday in January, and
needs this information before that date
so it can make it ready. to file with the
Comptroller General in time for the
meeting of the legislature We would
suggest that the surviving soldiers in
each township-get together at once to
get up the information asked for, as it
may mean the giving of a pension to
each and every soldier or his widow.
Forthe past several years there has
been an effort made to give to each
soldier $100 a year. but to do so it is
necessary to aqeertain how much money
it will take, and the only way to get
the information is to comply with Capt
Honor Roil unetou School.

Pinewood. Dec. 4.-Yesterday at 10
o'clock the boiler of the A. B. Rollings,
saw mill exploded. The mill is located
four miles south of here and the first
news of the explosion was made known
by Mr. Wilbur Railings driving to
town in his buggy with one of his
ands with a broken leg, just above the
ankle. The colored fireman June com
modore was severely scalded all oyer,
let leg crushed and hand broken. He
was taken in an automobile to a hos
pital in Sumter, where his leg was am
putated and wounds dressed. He has
a slight chance to recover. The writcr
visited the scene shortly afterwards
and it's a miracle that everybody there
were not killed. What saved the men,
was the machinery was not in motion.
Sawyer L. W. Kirvin was lacing the
button saw belt at the time. The boiler
went straight up and then sailed for
two hundred yards and landed against
a tall pine tree, the boiler opened out
like a newspaper. The engine was
blown out its bed, turned over several
times and every spoke wys broken out

Colored Teachers' Tssoclation.
To the Patrons abd Teachers of Ne-ro
Schools in Clarendon County:
I am writing this letter to the colored
teachers of the county to say ,that the
county association for colored teachers
-will convene in the colored graded
school building next Saturday, Decem
ber 12th, at 12 o'clock. Many of the
colored schools are open, and we take
this method of extending a cordial in
vitation to every teacher in the county
to attend. In the first. meeting the or
ganization of the association will be
bad. Plans for the improvement of
rural schools will be submitted; a
definite program of general topics of
the future meetines will be outlincd.
The colored people in .South Carolina
are blessed, and should be grateful to
those statesmen of the Anglo Saxon
race whose constructive legislation in
former days placed in every school dis
trict in our state a school for the white
children in one section of the aistrict
and a achool for the negro children in
the cther section. Then tod, f.aiow

of people are at starvation's door in
the confines of the European territory,
we are so arranged that we can con
tinue our work through the Providence
of an Almighty and the constructive
work of the leaders of our great South
ern white people.
I must appeal to every colored teach
er to attend the teachers' associatIon
regularly. The negro school needs
more conscreated 'men and women.

of the teaching is better, the school
work is divided into three departments,
viz., primary, intermediate and high
