BURGLARY.
On Mondiay morning when Mr. J. J.
Obear unlocked his front door and
- ~began to look around he saw his back
fIdoor partly opened and the drawer to
his desk lying in the middle of the
floor and the papers in the drawer
tumbled. It was very apparent that
bome one had broken in. The burglars
had used an auger ar.d made a series
of holes just sbove the lock. By this
process a hole large enough for his
arm to entcr was made. The door
5was locked from the inside 'with the
key left in the -lock. It was an easy
matter therefore for the robber to run
his arm through the hole that he had
made-and unlock the door trom the
* outside. About ten or twelve dollars
in cash was taken.

AT. iON'B LOSILNG EXERC1SES.
On Friday evening a large and ap
preciative audience filled the chapel of
the college to witness the closing exer
cises of the school. It was an ideal
night in, June, with a pleasant breeze
fanning the cheeks of all, and making
the physical conditions almost perfeet.
The exercises were opened with an
appropriate prayer by Rev. J. D. Crout.
The following program shows the
treat enioyed by those who were pres
ent:
1. Prayer, by Rev. Mr. Crcnt.
2. Song-"Bi: d Song" - by mem
bers of the primary grades, accompa
nied by cornets and piano.
3. Violin - "Romance" - by Miss
Charlotte Allston, acconpanied by
Miss Martha Dwight, pianist.
4. Song-"Sunlight Glances".- by
members of intermediate grades, ae
companied by cornets and piano.
i. Song-- "Spinning" - by Miss
Allston, ascompanied by Miss Dwight.
6. Address-"Education"-by Rev.
J. A. Smith, introduced by Rev. C. E.
McDonald.
7. Quartette - "Come Where the

ment, accompanied by cornets and
piano.
11. Violin, by Mr. Rawls, accom
panied by Ms, Allston.
12. Benediction, by Rev. J. A.
Smith.
The music, both instrumental and
vocall was of a high order of merit.
t was all thoroughly enjoyed by the
audience, and reflects honor on those
who planned, as well as those who
executed the numbers. Our limited
space forbids a detailed description of
of the rendition of the whole program,
and where all did so well it would
seem invidious to single out some for
special commendation. One of the
special features, that calls for more
than a passing notice, was the address

White Oak, It was brief, pointed and
practical, and was full of sound ad.
rice to both pupils and patrons of the
:hool. The subject has been so often
handled that it is somewhat hackneyed,
ut Mr. Smith, on this occasion, was
ble to present the old fnbjeet in a new
and pleasing dress, and we have heard
is address spoken of in very compli
entary terms.
The whole occasion was most pieas
ant and profitable. .The year that has
iosed has been a very prosperous oe,

-A TRIIBUTE TO MRS. LADD
Her Old-Pupils Ruggests a Donation
to Her.
The friends and pupils of Mrs. Cath
rine Ladd ire desirous of making
ome sort of testimonial of their affec
ions and esteem in this the ninetieth
year of her age. There is scarcely an
ld citizen in Falield and adjoining
:ounties to whom. this noble and tal
nted woman is unknown, and many
f them have been recipients of her
tindnesv in various ways. A nature
pecnliarly unselfish, with lofty ideals,
a nutiring energy, and great faculty
or organization, she instituted many
plans ,for the public benefit, and
was ever foremost in advancing social
and charitable schemes.
When the war came none were more
active and ardent in home-work for the
soldiers; and it is not strange that at
arecent meeting of veterans her name
poken in a passing tribute was greeted
by a storm of applause. Every Con
federate soldier was a son to her, and
they will not forget her earnest efforts
for the amelioration of their needs.
Her strength, her purse, were freely
given to all who needed, and now in
the hour of darkness it is but meet
that those who shared her bounty as
teacher-and there are few who have
not, directly or indirectly, in one or
the other of these-should hav, an
opportunity of adding their names to
the list which will be sent with the
testimonial...
There is no need of entering into
details of her present sad, cir.nmJ
stances-total blindness, entirehe
es esses, and a lack of thos ~ gs
which are essential to -ufering
inaU . Fried,l .~al:y and give
the deari g ~ our hearts' warm
greatings with this gift to cheer and
comfort her last days i Subscriptions
wll be received by Mr. G. B. McMas
err at the drug store, and packages
also left there. It is hoped that the
list will be fall and generous dons
tions of various kinds by July 4th, at
which time they will be forwarded to
her. Don't delay this good work, but
come at once. It may soon be too late!

BUCK LICE EDS
Mr. Edator: Wesotice in-I
paper a piece headed, "Mitford
Telephones." Well, Buck Lic _,
too. So I venture to write along
line and ask Mitford to fet" us uniit
our funds and have a line linked oA to
Messrs. Wylie's and Johnston's if
they don't object.
A very , d route would be_ by
Mr. C lingham's and- Prof.
W. S. R 's on- the Winnsboro
andeay's'Ferry 'Road;' then to, the
Flint Hill postoffice and on to Mr,
P. C. Mellichampe's store and to Mit
ford. This would be less direct. for
Mitferd, but it would be less expen
sive for it and Buck Lick to put their
funds together and build this longer
line than to build two short ones inde
pendent of each other.
We have been thinking of having a
line from here for some time, and now
if we will unite and then go to work
right and quit thinking and talking
and writing about it, there is no reason
why we can't have this line at an
early date.
There are some men here that will
contribute a goad deal to the purpose
and every man will help. I should-be
glad to hear from some of the Mitford
friends on the subject if they care to
consider this.

The farmers in our country have
ooked long but not in vain for the
iach needed rain. We had splendid
isasons last week and the cotton is all
ap at' last and everything is in a
lourishing condition. But owing to
:he long dry spell, a great deal of the
otton did not come up until the 18th
f June.
From what we can learn through
he papers this dlrought was general
tnd the cotton crop shows a very poor
,tand and much of it will, conse
~uently, come on late. Also we see
hat the acreage has been reduced two
million less than last year. With all
these odds against the production of a
Large erop, the writer thinks we can
but expect to receive a good price for
this crop.
Mr. Johnnie Gibson's cotton fields
are showing quite a number of blooms.
The fruit crop, including the melons,
is fine and abundant so far.
We are glad to notice so manyv
wagons of wheat passing through en
routo for Mr. Gladden's figur mill at
Rocky Creek. Some of our farmers
have raised good crops of it this year.
A soft-shell turtle, measuring 21l
inches from tip to tip and 46 inches in
circumference of shell and weighing
16 pounds, was captured last Wednes
day in the Wateree Creek by Mr. P. C.
Mellichampe.
The young people of the community
enjoyed a lawn party some time ago
given by Mrs.. N. A. Peay at her
pleasant home. Nobody knows better
than Mrs. Peay how to make the
young folks have a pleasant time.
A few evening ago Mrs. Mary Boul
ware entertained them very hand
somely at a party at her home given
in compliment of Mr. Hugh Stokes,
an interesting young ' an from Early
