Messrs. John and Scott Bagnal,
Norwood Hall and Chas. B. Smith,
motored down to the Santee Swamps
where Lietu. Ingram Wilson and his
friend Mr. Woodruff is camping, last
Sunday afternoon. Lieutenant Wilson
had already taken a couple of nice
at fish from his lines, therefore noth
ng would do but the guests must have
i fish dinner, which was quickly pre
)ared and much enjoyed. Lieut. Wil
ion said: "he was at least, gaining one
)ound a day, and feeling fine." The
augh of the camp seemed to be on
Vdr. Woodruff in regard to shooting
vild turkeys. He was shooting, what
ie thought to be turkeys, and yelling
'or the rest to come at once, he had
ound them all, but come to find but,

Noodruff says: "it makes no differ

rifE SANTEE BRIDGE
WII. BE I;IL'T
It now looks as if the Santee bridge
it Pinckney's landing is almost an
issured fact. In talking to Senator
V ideman and Representative Sprott
hey tell us that they have introduced
bill to bond the county for $400,000
or road and bridge work. The idea
s t: spend $150,000 ;n the Santee
)ridge, Sumter county will put up
100,000 and Orangeburg county $50,
100, making a total of $300,000 that
he bridge and approachments will
ost. It will he a toll bridge and each
ounty will receive their pro-rata
hare of receipts. Clarenden will have
.>50,000 left to put on other roads

mo-it. From what we gather this
