WITH deep affection
I often think on
Thoao Shandon bells,
Whose sound* so wild would,
In the days of childhood,
Fling round my cradlo.
Their magic spells.
I this I Ander
here'er I wander.
And thus grow fonder, . .
Swetft Cork, of thee;
With thy beim of Shandon,
That sound so grand on
The pleasant waters
Of the river Lee.
I've hoard bells chiming? .,
Fuji many a clime lb,
Tolling sublime In
. While at a glib rats
Brass tongues would vibrate?
Rut all their muslo
Spoke naught llko thine;
For memory dwelling
On each proud swelling*
Of the belfry knelling
Its bold notes free,
Made the bells of Shandon
Sound far more grand on
The pleasant waters
Of the river Lee.
I've heard bells tolling
Old "Adrian's Mole" In,
Their thunder rolling
From the Vatican,
And cymbals glorious
In the gorgeous turrots
Of Notre Dame;
But thy sounds are sweeter
5han the domo of Peter
lings o'er -the Tiber,
Oh! the bells of Shandon
Sound far more grand on
The pleasant waters
Of the river Lee.
There's a bell In Moscow,
While on tower and kiosk, 01
In Saint Sophia
The Turkman gets,
And loud in air
Calls men to prayer
From the tapering summit
Of tall minarets.
Such empty phantom
I freely grant them;
?'ut there Is an anthera
More dear to me?
'Tis the bells of Shandon,
That sound ao grand on
The pleasant waters
Of the river Lee.

HOW THE HM AN
Reuben Pitts' Affidavit Offered at
Hearing for Ball In Spflrtanbiirg
At the hearing for bail before Judge
Aldrloh last week the affidavit below
was presented by Reuben Pitts giving
hlB account of the shooting of young
Foster at Intnan. His narrative is
straightforward and poople in Lau
rens, at least, who know young Pittg,
will unhesitatingly acoept it as true.
Before me personally appears B. R.
Pitts, who boing duly sworn, eays:
That In September Iftit, deponent
was employed by tho trustees of inman
graded school to take charge of the
school as its principal for its session of
eight months. That his school at the
time of the occurrence which resulted
in tho death of Edward Foster, con
sisted of an enrollment of about 125
boys and glrle, ranging in ages from
10 to 0; deponent having ono assistant
as teacher. That deponent graduated
from Furman in June, 1002. That he
was born and raised in Laurens county
and is now 20 years of age, about 5 feet
6 Inches in hoight, and weighing about
120 pounds.> That at tho time of said
shooting, deponent was, and for some
time had boon, and is now, suffering
from a weak back, which renders him
very weak physically, and for which*
he wore and still woars a plaster, un
der phytioian's advice.
That four of tho largest and most
powerful boys in the school were Ed
ward Foster, Fred Ballonger, Jes^e
Ballenger and Raymond Wolfe; each of
whom was larger and stronger than de
ponent, and about 17 or 18ye.\rs of uge.
That from deponent's observation
those four boys seemed to run together.
That f^r a long lime Edward Foster
had given him and the school cons'd
erable trouble by his misconduct or
misbehavior --- in one week while the
demerit fys'.ein was In fore"', deponent
recalls that he, Edward Foster, in
curred about 10 demerit*: but that de
ponent dealt with him very leniontly
and wi h as much patlenco U3 any ono
could have expected, refra'ning from
inllictlng the penalty of whipping, un
til it became unavoidable, leading up
to tho lamentab'o tragedy of Tuesday
afternoon, the 24th of this month.
On Monday, Feb. 2!5d, Edward Fos
ter missed his spelling and deponent
told him to stay in on account thereof,
after school was out. Hollatly refused
to stay and did not stay. That know
ing tho intimate relation between him
and Fred Ballenger, deponent stated to
the lattor that If Fred Fosler came back
to school next morning ho would have
to take a whipping, that he could not
permit that kind of thing to go unpun
ished; and that if on account of his age
or sl/.e, and if his father did not so wish
then he must stay away from school;
that if he did como back, it would be
with thac understanding, namely, that
he would have to submit to that discip
line. That deponent oxpocted that
Fred would tell Ed what he said, and
has since learned that he did.
That Tuesday, the 21th Edward Fos
ter came back to school, Tho short re
cess was from 2.15 p, m. to nearly 8 p.
m. During ttut recoss, deponent had
one of the smaller boys of the school in
tho room lecturing him for running
away from school. A number of the
other boys we're looking in at tho
window at deponent apd the boy. De
ponent shook his head at them and
they all left except tho four big boys?
Ed, Fred, Jesse and Raymond and a
few others. Deponent then wont to the
door and told them to go away; they
all left except those four and they re
fused and remained there with their
faces at the window, and another win
dow, till deponent dismissed tho young
boy. School was reconvened a minute
or two later, and remained In session
till the rogular olosing timo, 4 o'clork.
Just before dismissing th# school, de
ponent road out the list of those who
wero to "Btay in after school, and
amongst them those four boys, Ed,
Fred, Jesse and Raymond; those four
bolng keing kept In on discipline and
the others on leseons. While hearing
tho lefsons of those thus kept in, the
four left the room without permission
and agdlnst the rule?, leaving their
hats. Doponont, after dismissing those
who had been kept in a proper timo on
lessons, took up tho casos of these four,
who had returned to tho room. He sent
Fred, Jesse and Raymond Into the lit*
tlo room, and told Ed to remain with
him. Deponent thereupon called to
his attontlon his 11 it rofnsal to stay in
the afternoon before. Ed contended
that ho should not have been told to
stay in. Without going into details of
that contention here, doponont said to
him, in subitanco: That this thing of
'disobedionce and infractions of the
rules and discipline of tho school by
him had heen going on so long that he,
depqnent,couId not permit it any longer.
Deponent had boon ohargod and ac
cused by the other boys of the school
that he had b?en excessively lenient to
him, and had let him off for doing what
he punished them for. Doponent to'd
him to stand up and take his whipping;
deponent having gone to the corner of
the room to gel two switches. He got
two, because he sometimes found that
the swishes hud been cut or notched.
Deponent hit him two ordinary licks
with ope of the switches across the coat
back. Immediately Edward throw his
right arm violently around deponent's
neck, with a very strong and tight el
bow grasp, and pressed and pulled de
ponent's head down to his, Edward's
ch?st; bearing him down. At the same
moment, the other three boys, Fred,
Jesse and Raymond, rushed in from
tho little room, the door of which was
about six stops distant.
That deponent had felt all the after
noon that trouble was brewing for him
at the hands of those four boys; their
conduct and demeanor so Wrongly in
dicated it t hat he expressed to his as
sistant his belief that they were going
to combine against him; but that he
would have to do his duty, oven if they
should (as he had a notion they might)
jump upon him. That when deponent
found himself In the vice-hko grasp of
Edward and heard .the others rushing
upon him, ho felt sure they wore about
to do him groat personal Injury. Tn or
der to forestall them or over-awo thorn,
and prevent their joint assault, he in
stinctively reached for his pistol for the
purjK>se of discharging it in the air or
on the flooor. Ho did not have the faint
est" idea of shooting any of them. He
would havo suffered them to injure him
rath?r than do that. His only Idea was
to, If possible, frighten them with the
pistol and thereby protect himself.
But, most unfortunately, Edward im
mediately grasped tho pistol, and in tho
scuflllo It accidentally wont off and
struck him?a result or consequence,
thut deponent had not had tho faint ot
expectation of; and which overwhelmed
him with grief; for deponent had a real
fondness for the young man. That all
ho could do was to got a physician as
soon as possible; and deponent sent for
ono, and thou wont himself. Later on
in tho afternoon ho surrendered him
self to tho town marshal.
Tho foregoing aro the principal facts
bearing upon tho present application,
and If anything of Importance has been
omitted, it is because it docs not now
occur to doponeht.

Reedy, the. distanco to Reedy being
about a mile and to Ware Shoals on

a beautiful grove near tho publle road
that leads to Princeton. Poplar has al
ways beon a pdpular place of rendez
vous and with the present postor, Dr.
J. O. Martin, it is likely to "retain its
largo membership, as ho is a man of
ability and unusually (rood talent.
In connection with this, we have a
fine school building and school, Mr. J.
E. Arnold of Greenwood boing the ablo
principal. Under his untiring efforts
a debating society has been organized
to meet every Fiiday night and it bids
fair to make a grand sticcois. The de
bate is open for any outsiders who
wish to participate. The society has
not been organizod permanently yet,
but expects to bl at an early dato.
Prof. Arnold intends giving an entor
taiumont ut the closing of his school.

some injuries, but not serious.
