A Conference of County Superintendents
Was Held in Greenwood id Which
the Matter Was Discussed.
A conference of County Superin
tendents of Education was held at
Greenwood last Wednesday for the pur
pose of deciding whether it was desira
ble that a District Summer School for
teachers should be held in the counties,
instead of the usual County Schools.
- The counties of Abbeville, Edgeneld,
Greenwood, Saluda, Newberry and
Laurens are embraced in the proposed
district and most of these counties were
represented at the conference. In ad
dition there were present State Super
intendent of Education O. B. Martin,
Dr. John O. Willson, president of Lan
der College and Prof. E. C. Coker, su
perintendent of tho Greenwood City
Superintendent Martin is a strong ad
vocate of the district school plan as he
believes it is the best possible method
of conducting a school for teachers.
The central school offers the teachers
of the several counties many advan
tages not to be found in the small
After a discussion of the proposition
the Greenwood Conference adopted a
resolution to the effect that a district
school was desirable and if the sev
eral counties decided to adopt the plan,
the first school should be held at Green
wood. In the following years it is pro
posed to rotate the places for holding
the school among the counties included
in the district.
Dr. Willson offers the use of the lec
ture room, dormitories, library and
other conveniences of Lander College
without charge and agrees to furnish
board to the teachers at $14 for the
session of four weeks.
The matter will be presented to the
several County Boards of Education at
once, and if the plan is adopted, an
other Conference will be held in Green
wood, Friday, March 16. At this Con
ference it is proposed to organize the
county superintendents into a board of
trustees of the school and select a suita
ble man for the head of the school.

M. P. Leopard, employed at the New
berry Cotton Mills, Newberry, S. C,
says: "I have used Doan's Ointment
and cannot say too much in its favor. I
had itching hemorrhoids for years and
also a breaking out on my legs, and it
almost set my crazy. I could not find
anything to help it. I have seen the
time when I have gotten out of bed and
scratched until my legs were one mass
of blood and I felt as though I could
have taken a knife and scraped the
skin off, but it only made it worse. The
doctor gave me some salve and bought
two or three different ointments and
put them on, but nothing did any good.
Finally I procured a box of Doan's
Ointment. I do not think I had it on
ten minutes before I felt relief. A con
tinuation of the applications as directed
entirely stopped all my misery and no
one knows what a relief it has been. I
can take off my clothes now and sleep
in peace. You can bet your last dollar
on one thing: I can recommend Doan's
Ointment first, last and all the time."

KLUGH REFUSED TO
DISSOLVE TUE ORDER.
Mlltiken Interests Permanently Restrained
From Holding a Meeting of Stock*
holders of Laurens Cotton Mill.
In the case of O. B. Simmons et al
against N. B. Dial, S. M. Milliken et
al., Circuit Judge J. 0. Klugh has re
fused to dissolve the temporary in
junction restraining the defendants
from holding a meeting of stockholders
of Laurens Cotton Mills. An order has
already been made providing a refer
ence as to the motion to dissolve and
Judge Klugh orders that his opinion be
filed as a part of that order and that
the injunction be continued until the
heating of the case on its merits. The
effect of this is that the defendants,
who are the Milliken party in the Lau
rens Covton Mill litigation, are pre
vented from holding a meeting of
stockholders with the end to gain pos
session of the mill.
Judge Klugh's opinion is especially
interesting in that nart referring to
the question of jurisdiction as between
State and Federal Courts. Judge Klugh
declines to yield jurisdiction in the case
and holds that the acceptance of juris
diction by the Federal Courts does not
relieve the State Courts of the affirma
tive duty of determining for themselves
whether or not they have jurisdiction.
THE LITIGATION SKETCHED.
To refresh the readers' minds it may
be worth while to recapitulate the liti
gation. At the suit of W. E. Lucas,
who was at the time and still is, presi
dent and treasurer of the Laurens
Mills, Judge Klugh last May granted
an injunction restraining Seth M. Milli
ken and his associates, who are named,
from voting some twelve hundred shares
in the Laurens Mills. Subsequently the
Millikens moved to transfer the case to
the Federal Court and Judge Etawley
granted their motion to dissolve Judge
Klugh's injunction. Meanwhile the
Millikens did not move in the State
Courts to dissolve the injunction, and
so far as those Courts arc concerned it
is still of full force and effect. The
State Court declined to recognize the
removal and still retains its jurisdic
During the summer of 1905 the Milli
kens brought an action before Circuit
Judge Jeter C. Pritchard, praying that
Mr. Lucas and bis associates in the liti
gation be restrained from further in
terfering with a meeting of the stock
holders which it was asked that the
Milliken interests be permitted to call,
and further praying that the board of
directors displaced at the annual meet
ing, May 19, 1905. be restored to the
control of the mill, ousting the new or
Lucas board, then elected. Judge Pritch
ard granted the prayer to enjoin fur
ther proceedings in the State Court by
Lucas in the pending litigation. He re
fused to grant the other relief asked
for by the Millikens. It will be noted
that his restraining the further pro
ceeding in the State Courts did not af
fect the proceeding already taken,
namely, the orignal injunction granted
by Judge Klugh, which has never been
attacked in the State Courts.
The Milliken interests then called a
meeting of stockholders, but a new set
of plaintiffs, stockholders, namely, Sim
mons, Bell and Madden, obtained a
temporary injunction from Judge Klugh,
prohibiting the holding of this stock
holders' meeting. Thereupon the Mil
liken interests moved before Judge R.
W. Memminger at Saluda, to dissolve
this injunction, but Judge Memminger
refused the motion on the ground that
he had no jurisdiction, that the motion
should be made before Judge Klugh.
Then such a motion was made by the
Millikens before Judge Klugh to dis
solve the injunction granted Simmons,
et al., which he now refuses In the or
der just filed.
The stock of the mill is now quoted
by holders at $160.?News and Courier.
Starving to Death.
Because her stomach was so weak

could not eat, Mrs. Mary H. Walters,

less drugs that I could not eat, and my
nerves so wrecked that I could not
sleep; and not before I was given up to
die was I induced to try Electric Bit
