AND WARES SHOALS
lie Talks to a Washington Newspaper
Correspondent About the Big Enter
prise on the Saluda.
Special to The Spartanburg Herald:
Washington, D. C, Sept. 27th.?
Col. N. B. Dial, President of the Wares
Shoals Manufacturing Company, which
is just finishing one of the finest cotton
mills in tho South at Wares Shoals, S.
C, was in the city yesterday, return
ing from the North, where he has been
on a business trip in connection with
his manufacturing interests. Col. Dial
la :dso President of the Enterprise
Bank of I.aureus, of which city he is a
In speaking of the plant of the Wares
Shoals Manufacturing Company, Col.
Dial stated that the mill would be
ready for business in about 60 days.
The plant is a $500,000.00 one, and
while New Jersey capital is largely in
terested in it, there are 212 stockhold
ers in South Carolina, and a very large
part of the stock is therefore local. ?
While he is modest about his success in
promoting the enterprise, it is probably
a fact that Mr. Dial raised more money
for this plant than was ever before got
up by one man in South Carolina in
connection with a single industry. He
is well known as one of the best busi
ness men in South Carolina and his
reputation as 'such is no? unknown in
financial circles outside tKe State.
Besides his interest in connection
with the Wares Shoals Company, Col.
Dial is President of another Company,
which will shortly develop the water
power at Boyd's Mill, in Laurens
County, putting in a large electric plant
for the purpose of developing power
which will be transmitted to the city of
Laurens, there to be utilized for va
rious purposes. He conferred with the
officials of the Southern Railway Com
pany here yesterday in regard to an ex
tension of tho spur track which has
been built from Barmores, near Honea
Path to the Wares Shoals mill; the ex
tension being desired in connection with
the Boyd's Mill enterprise.

PRINCETON, Sept. 30th.? Misses Mary

most pleasant entertainment given at
their home in Princeton.
The hall, parlor and piazza were
gracefully decorated with pot plants,
the color scheme of pink and white was
carried out very effectively. The guests
were received by Misses and Bessie
The evening was spent in merry con
versation. Delightful refreshments
were served by Misses Bessie Allen and
The guests for the occasion were
Misses Ella and Grace Sullivan, Hattie
Crane, Maud Machen, Emmie Lou and
Mary Humbert, Niza Sullivan and Lu

Sullivan, James Machen, Alvin Mc
Kelvy, Milton Taylor, Joe Sullivan,

Spartanburg was also numbered among

?'I-;very week that passes makes clearer
I ho wisdom of Japan's decision to have
ace. and the Japanese crowd will un
derstand it some time, even as Ameri
cans now approve of the Jay treaty for
which Alexander Hamilton wai stoned
on Broadway. We do not yet know
what, if any, part the bankers took;
whether or not the British Government
promised to guarantee Japan's new
territory in the treaty by which India
is to be protected; or whether the wise
>rientals counted profit and cost with
out having to reckon with either of
heae external influences, but only with
.hat might happen if Russia were
ble, with money and internal control,
? > wait doggedly for some years. What
?c do know is that Japan wins not
nly the things expressly stated, but
hers of as great or greater moment?
i the ultimate control of China and of
'. ic railways that nominally are hers.
. no Government's explanation to the
?ople, that the new conditions call for
? unmercial energy and prowess not
ss than the prowess and energy that
defeated Russia, will sink more and
.tore into the people's mind. Some have
?>een sorry to see peace, because of a
guess that war would have brought a
speedier revolution, a remote and un
certain surmise, hardly to be weighed
against the ardent wishes of cautions
and progressive Russians like M. De
Witte. Nor do we expect appreciable
loss to American interests in the Occi
dent by the hysterical over-expression
given to the President's important role.
If the peace is a good one for Japan, as
we believe; it is, the Japanese people
will lose their resentment at us step by
step with their growing understanding
that they have not been bullied as they
were ten years ago."

The Incident Prom Which I? Got Ita
Treachery bay, on the const of Aus
tralia, received It* name from the fol
lowing incident related by Captain
Stokes in bis "The Voyage of the Bea
gle:" "I bad Just turned my head
around to look after my followers
when I was suddenly staggered by a
violent nnd piercing blow about the
left shoulder, and ore the dart bad
ceased to quiver in Its destined mark
a long, loud yell, mich as only the sav
age can produce, told me by whom 1
had been speared. One glance suillced
to show mo the cliffs, so lately the
abode of silence and solitude, swarm
ing with the dusky forms of the na
tives, now indulging in all the exuber
ant action with which the Australian
testllles bis delight. One tall, busby
headed fellow led the group and was
evidently my successful assailant. I
drew out the spear, which had entered
the cavity of the chest, and retreated
with all the swiftness I could com
mand In the hope of reaching those
who were coining up from the boat
lud were then about halfway.
"Onward I hurried, carrying the
spear which I had drawn from the
wound, and determined if overtaken.
aB I expected, to sell my life dearly.
Each stop, less steady than the former
one, reminded tUO that t was fast los
ing hood, but I hurried on, still retain
ing the chronometer and grasping my
only weapon of defense. The savage
cry soon told me that my pursuers had
found their way to the boach, while at
every respiration the air escaping
through the orifice of the wound warn
ed me that the strongth by which I
was still enabled to struggle through
the deep pools In my path must fall
me soon. I had fallen twice, each dis
aster being announced by a shout of
vindictive triumph from the blood
hounds behind. To add to my distress,
I now saw with utter dismay that Mr.
Tarrant and the man with the instru
ments, unconscious of the fact that I
had been speared and therefore believ
ing that I could make good my escape,
were moving off toward the boat.
"At that moment the attention of the
retreating party was aroused by a boat
approaching hastily from the ship, the
first long, loud, wild shriek of the na
tives having most providentially ap
prised those on board of my danger.
They turned and perceived that I was
completely exhausted. 1 spent the last
struggling energy I possessed to join
them. Supported on each side, I had
Just strength to direct them to turn to
ward our savage enemies, who were
hurrying on In a long file, shouting and
waving their clubs and were now only
about thirty yards off. Our turning
momentarily checked their advance,
while their force Increased. Then a
party, headed by Lieutenant Emory,
hastened over the reef to our support.
At the sight of Lieutenant Emery's
party the natives fled with the utmost
Thoren?, the Prophet of Notare.
Thoreau was not the first American
to live out of doors, but he was the
first to make out of doors living n pro
fession and to open the way to a new
kind of writing. His egotism, his as
sumption of individual ownership In
nature, have helped to found a school
and to create; a cult, but bis spirit has
diffused Itself through American life,
and he must be counted among the per
manent Influences In that life. He
opened a world of experience which
Is one of the great refuges from the
tyranny of work and wealth, from
which flow restoring streams of health,
vitality nnd Joy. Ills defects of tem
perament are lost In his agile and virile
idealism, nnd the best report of his life
Is to be found in his parable: "I long
ago lost a hound, a bay horse and a tur
tle dove, nnd am still on their trail.
Many are the travelers I have spoken
concerning them, describing their
tracks and what calls th.?y answered
to. I have met one or two who have
heard the hound and the tramp of the
horse and even seen the dove disappear
behind a cloud, and they sr?eincd as
anxious to recover them as if they had
lost them themselves."?Hamilton \V.

St. Elmo'* Fire.
The electric lights occasionally seen
playing round the masts of ships at
sea and known variously as the fires
of St. Helen, St. T'iiio, St. Peter and
St. Nicholas were familiar to sailors
long before the Christian era. If sin
gle the flame was named after Helen
of Troy, and Its appearance was re
garded as a bad omen. Two lights
were known to the ancient Romans as
"Castor and Pollux," and sailors wel
comed them as boding good luck. In
1000 M. de Forbes records counting
more than thirty lights dancing round
the mnsts and rigging of his ship. If
the lights first appeared low and dis
appeared by nscending the masts a
prosperous voyago was believed to be
assured, but lights that began at the
topmast and descended toward the sea
presaged tempest and danger of wreck.

to break an offender's neck by rapping

times the full which follows and some

appears to have adopted the mum: of

not certain, but It was probably not

great-grandson of Walter Kitzalan, for
