Much Anxiety Among Their Fain?
Thejo is a groat fonr in Charles
ton that six men havo hoon drownod
off tho har. A party of six operatives
of tho Rayai Dag and Yarn Factory
left Charleston Saturday afternoon
.on a fishing trip, ovor tho har, and
none of them havo returned. It is
feared that their boat capsized and
the mon woro drowned..
Tho mon started down tho harbor
in two small cat-rigged boats shortly
beforo dark on Saturday afternoon.
Thoy woro to return to tho city on
Sunday aftornoon. Morris Island
was the destination of tho party and
it is not known whether they over
roached tho fishing placo or whether
thoy suffered somo mishap in return
ing at tho scheduled timo, s
Saturday aftornoon was calm and
pleasant weather, hut early Sunday
morning tho wind set in from tho
northeast, blowing a stiff galo which
continued all Sunday night and again
Monday night, roaching velocities ns
high as 50 miles an hour and with a
vory rough sea, it is possible that
tho boats may havo been swamped or
swept out to sea and tho entire party
It ls possible that tho boats may
havo boon driven into some of the lit
tle creoks or perhaps tho men are all
safe in charge of tho keeper of Morris
island lighthouse, waiting for better
weather conditions to attempt to
como back to tho city.
It is, of course, possible that the
entire pnrty is safe if not at tho light
house, at somo other point along the
neighboring islands, but it is strange
that ono of the number at least has
not taken tho land route to reach tho
city and convey the nows of the par
Tho following are tho names of
those who composed tho party: Pat
Grayson, Dick Webb, George Miles,
John Moyer, J. C. Edwards, Will
Hyatt. All of tho mon, with tho ex
coption of Mr. Haytt, are married
mon with children, and, as might be
expected, Ibero is much excitement
and trouble in the village of the Roy
al bag and yarn factory.
They Aro Found.
Tho parties reported loss ns sea

aro now safe and sound at. homo.
They wore found on Morris Island
and carried to the city in a wagon
that had gone to search for them.
PURE HOUSE SENSE.
Animal Runs Away and Thou Sum
mons tho Doctor.
Thc existence of what is termed
pure horse souse was demonstrated
rocontly in Washington, 1). C., by the
horso owned hy J. H. Wudeman. The
animal became unmanageable while
being driven and ran away, throwing
tho owner to tho ground, where he
landed in an unconscious condition.
Then the horse walked up to the
door of Dr. ll. Wells Woodward and
rang tho electric push button boll un
til the, doctor caine out and went to
the aid of the injured man.
While the doctor was making a
preliminary examination of Mr.
Wurdeman, the horse stood quietly
and even after tho driver had been
taken into the doctor's office to have
a laceration of the forehead sewed
up, tho horse remained waiting.
"I thought at first tho horse was
coming in to superintend the opera
tion," Dr.-Woodward says. "It was
tho most remarkable thing I ever
heard of, and had I not personally
witnessed the whole affair, 1 say
frankly I would not havo believed it.
Dr. Woodward and a maid wore
brought to the door by the persis
tent ringing of tho bell. Opening
the glass doors they saw the horse
standing on tho porch rubbing its
nose vigorously on the nicle-platod
sign. When the mall screamed, the
horse stuck his head In the vestibule
ns though looking for someone.

A enso ls now pending In tho Uni
ted States Court at Charleston that
ls of much interest to tho farmors of
South Carolina, and tho llnal disposi
tion of tho caso ls hoing watched
with great Intorost. The case ls in
roforonco to tho labor contract law
of this State. Ahout a month ago
two nogroos woro sentoncod to terms
of imprisonment lu tho Charleston
county Jail for tho violation or this
law. Their attorneys obtained a writ
of habeas corpus from Judgo Braw
loy, alleging that thoso mon wore un-1
lawfully detained and deprived of |
their Ubortlos In violation of tho con
Btltution of tho United States.
The principal ground of attack on
the law seems to bo that tho labor
contract law violatos that provision
of tho federal constitution which for

In othor words, the claim Is made
that the lobor contract law of this
State provides punishment for the
nonpayment of advances made under
tho labor law, or tho noncompliance
with the terms of a labor contract, ai
strictly civil contract, and fails to
provide punishment for othor civil
contra?is when violated. It ls said
some of our best lawyers think the
law unconstitutional and that the Un

it will be heard some time this week.
The case was brought by Messre Lo
gan and Grace, two Charleston law
yers. They allege that tho State
law is class legislation and a form of
peonage, and, therefore, in conflict
with the federal constitution. A fow
days ago, on instructions from Attor

District Atorney Cochran filed a pe

On last Thursday morning Coron

tho dead body of William Dunmoyor,
a negro, who died tho day beforo
from lnjulros rocolvod Saturday
night wook ago on tho Southern Rali
way between Jamison nu I St.Mnt
thows. Just how Duumoyor mot his
doath ls not known. It is said ho was
urunk when ho left Orangeburg on
the night of tho accident, and the
chances aro that ho foll from the
trniu In passing from ono car to an
Another nogro man who was with
Dunmoyor Testified at tho Inquest
that thoy boardod tho train at Row
esvillo, that ho paid his faro lo Or
angoburg, whilo tho dead num. Dun
moyor, paid his faro to St. Matthews.
Says Dunmevor gave tho conductor
$1 and received 35 cents in change.
This witness sstc] that both ho and
Dunmeyor left tho train at Orange
burg, but th t Dun moyer again got
aboard tho tri lu and started for St.
Matthews, where ho had intended go
Tho other witnesses were Drs.
Lowman and Shccut, who operated
on tho negro Sunday morning week
ago, and tho coroner, who heard his
statements as given to tho doctors.
Drs. Lowman and Shecut tcstiiled
that tho nogro was brought to thom
at 10:40 a. m. Sunday morning week
ago by Dr. D. Moorer, a colored phy
sician, who asked them to operate;
that tile coroner was also present and
asked them to take the negro's state
ment beforo operating.
They testified that the nogro told
them he had been put olf tho train
just above Jamison by tho conductor,
and that he fell and tho train crush
ed his hand. Said he did not know
why he was put off. This was about
eight o'clock on the Saturday night
he was nurt, and he saul he lay hy
the track In his Injured condition for
severul hours, then dragged himself
to Jamison, where ho aroused some
negroes and they sent him to Orange
burg on the mixed train, roaching
here early In the morning.
Drs. Lowman and Sheen! testitled
that when brought to them they
found the right hand badly crushed
and were forced to amputate. At
that, time there was no evidence ol
internal Injuries and the negro did
not seem to suffer except from his
mangled hand. Was In a dazed con
dition and they could get very lil (le
out of him. Visited him afterwards
and when they found 'als condition
serious, they reported it to the South
ern railway olliclals. They perform
ed the post mortem examination and
found liver and Stomach In bad con
dition from effects of what looked to
bo a terrible blow. May have boon
caused by negro falling heavily on
cross ties, or some other hard matter
Coroner Rickenbakor's testimony as
lo the post mortem statement differ
ed from that of tho doctors' lu that
he claimed the negro said ho was
ejected from the moving train.
The Southern Railway was not
represented at the inquest. Nor wore
any of the train crew present. Par
ties who saw Dunmoyor the night of
the accident at the depot as the train
on which he was riding says Dunmey
or was drunk. None of theso parlies
testified at the inquest. The jury
brought lu a verdict that Dunmoyor
came to his death by wounds caused
by some train on the Southern Rail
way. If ns stated above, Dunmoyor
was drunk, no doubt ho fell from the
train while it. was in motion and re
ceived the injuries that caused his
TEXAS CAMPHOR FARMS.
Latest Addition to the National Re
sources in That Stat?;.
Camphor farms aro the latest ad
dition to the resources of Texas. The
Government now has two farms in
operation in (lui Stale, which bid fali
to becoming con tore for tho produc
tion of tho much needed article. Prac
tically the entire supply of camphor
for the world now comes from For
mosa and is controlled hy Japan.
Camphor is ono of the ingredi
ments needed in modern warfare and
ls used in the manufacturo of explo
sives used in high power guns. Now
that the Japanese government has
control of the world's output, lt is
not certain that it could he had at
times when it would la; most needed.
In order to provide for the future
the United States lias started two
farms In Texas. Tho plan of culti
vation will he different, than that em
ployed in Formosa. In that Island
tho plants are allowed to grow for a
time. Then they are > ut down aller
they have, become trees and ground
to pulp and tho camphor extracted.
In Texas tho camphor seeds will be
sown like wheat.
When the small shoots have grown
to the height of four or live feet thoy*
will be cut a fool from the ground
and the camphor extracted. This
gives a quicker return in tho crop
and a hotter grade of camphor, This
process can be repealed from year to
year until a new held is developed.
At the present time one acre of cam
phor will yield $4.r.<> a year. Tile
prico will fall when tho cultivation
becomes more general in Texas.

Tho greatest skeleton producing
country in the world is France. Med
ical schools, hospitals, museums and
private individuals are supplied with
skeleton of man and beast by the
great French monopoly, which has
branches in London and New Yora
Tho skeleton factory is owned hy a
rich man, and is under the supervis
ion of the French Government. For
taxidermy and preparing tho skele
tons of animals and birds there ls a
special department in tho factory but
the business proper consists in pre
paring human skeletons. The busi
ness is conducted very quietly in tho
heart of Paris.
I The bodies of animals, paupers,
unknown persons killed In accidents
j bodies sent by scientists, explorers
?from strange countries, and those of
persons who had, before death, sold
'their remains, aro worked up In the
'great French factory. It is a grew
BOlne place, this establishment where
bones ure bleached, wired and put
together. There are shelves and
shelves of grinning skulls, and draw
ers lilied with loose Hm hs. When a
body is taken to tho factory it takes
several months before it comes out of
the first treatment, and the chemicals
I used are kept a trade secret.
After the bones aro nicely bleach
ed, they pass through a number of
other processes, the workmen In each
department bringing them nearer
'completion. Finally, after the parts
havo been wired and provided with
springs, they arrive In the joining
room, where thoy are put together to
form perfect skeletons. Then they
are either packed for shipment or
placed in ?.no company's show room.
Tho French factory ls sahl to have
boon in existence more than 120
years, and all the workmen engaged
there must have served at least live
years in the dissecting schools of

The cotton boll weevil is unusually
numerous and destructive this year,
according to a report by Dr. W, I).
Hunter, in charge of the boll wee
vil investigation for tho United
States department of agriculture,
"The condition throughout the
past winter have been unusually fav
orable for the hibernation of the boll
weevil. The two critical conditions
for successful hibernation, tempera
ture anti dryness have been as favor
able as they will probably ever be.
"The mild winter and spring- is
having the effect of cansing an un
usualy early emergence.
"The conpitions indicate clearly
that weevils will be unusually abun
dant in the cotron fields, and that
great damage is to be expected.
Some conditions, for instance, dry
weather during Juno and .July after
the cotton plants are well started,
may serve to check the insect,"
SOME paper gayg seems that tho
trouble between Nicaragua and Hon

mule. The Washington Post says
"if her name was Maude, the affair

El JJORE E DI S BEN SA RY
Will Be Closed On and After tho Last
The County Dispensary Board will
not rescind its action ordering the
closing of tho Elloree dispensary un
less the matter is taken before tho
courts, which is not likely in the face
of tho fact that nearly every body in
Elloree want the dispensary there
closed. Senator Raysor and Attorney
General Lyon's agrees as to the law.
Both Messrs. Raysor and Lyon seem
to bo In symphathy with this board
and tho peoplo of Elloree, and Mr
Lyon is reported as suggesting a plan
by which the board may evade tlx
law in this case.
The suggestion advises the board
to destroy the dispensary, which the
law says must remain a dispensary
until an election is held, but a sort
of negative purpose. This means
they must, withdraw from it their
support in a measure and pay thc
dispenser there a merely nominal sal
nry, one which would not ho remun
erative, and which he could not pos
slbly afford to accept.

things will happen, we know because

go to parties dance and spark; they'll
kiss each other in the dark; they'll

hopeful man and wife, and sometime
they will own a kid, just like their
dads and mammies did, These things
will happen, sure, we know, because

The Florence Times says "Senator
Raysor of Orangdburg, one of the
best lawyers of the state bas given
out an interview in which he sup
ports Attorney General Lyon's in
terpretation of the Carey-Cothran
law in regard to the closing of the
dispensaries, which has been so
much discussed. He says that the
inability to close existing dispensa
ries is a defect in the "local option"
law." The Times then goes on to
say; "The truth of the matter is
thal there were many defects in
that law which might have been cor
rected if the advocates of it had not
been so much afraid that the state
dispensary men woule have out. ma
neuvered them on the Moor of the
house and they, having the majority
refuse to allow anything to be
beard from the other side. The
Carey-Cothran law is not a local op
tion law, it has mighty little option
about it. May he next year they
will allow some of the intelligence
and experienct of t he otherside come
ih to help make a law that will bc of
benefit to the state."
Some (iood Advice.
We have reeieved a copy of a circu
lar letter which is being circulated
among the colored people of Orange
burg and adjoining counties by the
Negro Ministerial and Lay Union,
of Orangeburg county-an organiza
tion composed for the most part of
the more conservative, trustworthy
and substantial colored citizens.
Thc? circular contains much well
considered advice to the colored peo
ple, lt advises tho people of the
race to be law-abiding and to inform
themselves of the laws, so that they
may be useful citizens, lt advises
them to pay more attention to the
training of their children and to
build up their homes.
The circular also speaks of the
foreign labor that is being brought
to this country,and tells colored
people that if they prove themselves
worthy the immigrant question will
not affect them in the least.
In all the circular is calculated to
be very helpful, if the colored peo
ple will hoed the advice given.
