John Whittaker, convicted at the
last term of coart ot assault and bat
tery of a high and aggravated nature
and sentenced to one year on the chain
gang, made his escape on Tuesday
night. It will be recalled that the
Harrisons with whom Whittaker had
his fight escaped a few weeks ago,
and Whittaker has been anxions th'. t
-the Harrisons should be recaptured.
- This may have had something to do
with -his determination to depart.
Whittaker had been made a trusty
and did the cooking for the gang. A
few days ago, however, so it is said,
another convict was given the job of
cooking and Whittaker had to work
like the rest. It is upposed that this
also had something to do with his
iight. Up to the time of going to
press ntothing had been heard of him

The suggestion thas Prof. Davis Write It
To Editor of The News and Heraild:
The State's editorial on "A History
of '76," like most of its editorials, is
timely and important. That a history
of that interesting Deriod is needed,
that it should be written now before
all the actors in that great drama have
passed away, and that Professor Davis
is the mans to write it, are truths which
have forcibly presented themselves to
the minds of many citizens. We have
good reason to believe that Prof.
David himself is by no. means indiffer
ent to this claim of public service
we may almost say of duty-upon
himself; but his exacting professional
labors have thus far left him no leisure
for any outside duty however impor
tant. It is therefore a special p:easure
board of trustees of the -outh Caro- so,
Itna College instructed the qxeentive WO
committee to provide for the appoint
ment in June of an adjunct in Prof. to
Davis' overcrowded and overworked roi
department. When this is done, it is tOe
hoped he may be able to devote a per- set
tion of his time to writing the history '
of '76, as well as to other public ser- ste
vice of great interest to the college
and to the State, such as the prepara- ril
tion of the Centennial Catalogue, to
which the Society of Alumni has til
already invited him to undertake. No Pe
ether man is so well fitted for either tie
work. X m
