Now York's Population N'ow Exceeds
This Number by Over 4ou?Second
in World to lteuch Murk.
New York. Aug. 13.?New York has
just achieved the distinction of being
the first citv In the western hemisphere
and the second In the world to pass
the 5,000,000 mark In population. The|
margin by which this record was gain
ed this week was not a wide one since
according to the figures of tho board
of health the greater city now con
tains exactly 5,000,407 people. This
estimate Is based on the otllcial cen
sus taken in April last year which
gave New York a population of 1,766,
S33, so that within a period of fifteen
months there has been an increase of
233,674 equal to the population of a
largo sized city. Since 1898 when the
population of New York was but 3.
272,418 there has been an increase of
53 per cent., a striking record in it
self. The great concentration of pop
ulation has not been injurious to the 1
health of New York's citizens, howev
er. On the contrary figures for the
last thirteen years show a falling off!
in the death rate. According to the |
liures of the health department for
the past week the death rate was only
a fraction over 14 to each one thous
and inhabitants, which is one per cent,
lower than the lowest record of the
last thirteen years. The infant mor
tality among children less than one
year of age was 156 In 1,0U0 as against|
235 in tho corresponding week for
1010. At the present rate of increase
it is figured that New York will out
strip London and become the largest
city in the world within the next 25
* PARTISAN LEADERS OF S.
By Anna Prenllss.
Winning first prize in contest of D.
A. lt., Laurens Chapter.
The partisan lenders of South Caro
lina were the men, who, during the
American Reaolutlon, when the Brit
ish under Cornwallis, Tarleton, Raw
don and others were overrunning the
state, led their neighbors and friends
who banded themselves together to
protect their homes, families, and
lives. The men whom they led to vic
tory, wore woolen garments, called
hunting shirts, woven by their wives
and daughters, their caps were of ra
coon skin, with the tails of a racoon
or squirrel hanging down behind;
their trousers und bIiocs wort' of fleer
tikln. Each man rotlo his own horse,
Some carried reaping hooks and mow
ing Bcyths, this InBtoad of swords,
and a few carried pitch forks which
they used as spears. Most of Sumter's
men carried a rifle, or the flintlock
sort, with this, the back woodsmen
could send a bullet to the distance
of two hundred yards Into an object
the size of a man's hat. Each rifle
man had a powder horn slung over
his shoulder, and wore a knife in his
belt. It is said of Sumter's men that
they were always ready "to scalp an
Indian, to hug a bear, and to fight
British dragoons.' They laid them
selves in the swamps of the Santee
and Pee Doo rivers. By means of
BUCh signals, as the hooting of an owl,
the chattellng of a squirrel, 111?
screaming of a panther, they warned
one another of the approach of 111?
enemy. They would dasli out and
fight a desperate hand-to-hand battle,
and then disappear Into the forest.
The greatest partisan Laders were
Francis Marlon, Thomas Sumter, and
Francis Marlon was horn al Wlnl
paw in 1732. As a boy, he wanted to
lead a a-fnring life, bill a ship wreck
caused him to change his mind, hi
an expedition flfj^ isi ihc Indians in

ant under Captain William Moult rlo.1
lie was appointed to a captaincy In
tin; regular army in I77">. watt man.' a
brigadier general by Governor Rot
ledgo in 177s. Fortunately for bis
country, just before Charleston fell
ho sprained his ankle, and retired
from the garrison, so therefore was
not made a prisoner of war. After
the surrender, lie began his swift and
sudden attacks upon the enemy. Tarl
eton once attempted to catch him. but
gave It up saying: "Come on. boys,
let's go back and we'll soon find the
"game cock'"" (Sumtor), but as for this
old fox the devil himself could not
catch him." From that incident, the
title of "Swamp Fox" has clung to
11 tho gallant Marion.' He, with the
help of Llghthorse Harry Lee from
Virginia, took Forts Motte and Wat
son. At the battle of Kutaw Springs,
he commanded the right under Greeno.
After tho British retreat to Charles
tori, he went to a session of the Pro
vincial Congress. His face always
wore a Stem, hard look. Ho had lit
tle to say, but Boomed never to sleep,
and was always ready to rush Into
the tlilckcst part of the light. After
tho war. he occupied himself with
fanning. Ho died February 27*li.

ginin in 1734. He was ft volunteer in
the French and Indian War, and was
present at Braddock's defeat. In
March 1770, he became lieutenant-col
onel in the American army. After
the capture of Charleston by the Brit
ish, lie took refuge in the swamps of
tho Santee with the rank of briga
dier-general. On July 12th, he defeat
ed a British detachment on the Ca
tawba and on August 18th, was de
feated at Fishing Creek by Tarleton.
He collected another corps, and on
November 12th defeated Colonel Morn
ings near Broad River. In the battle
of Blaekstocks, November 1780 he was
severely wounded; but in March 1781,
ln> raised three new regiments and in
concert with Marion, Pickei and ot'i
ers harraSoed the British unceasing
ly. His courago was so bold that it
often led him into battHe against
forces much greater than his own.
Sometimes he was defeated, but al
ways came out of defeat as undaunt
ed as before. In 1781, Congress pass
ed a resolution of thanks to him and
his men. After the war. Sumter had
a great public career; he first served
as Congressman from South Carolina,
then as United States senator, and 11
nally as Minister to Brazil. He was
the last surviving general of the Rev
olution .dying near Caindon, S. C, in
Andrew Bickens was born at Baxton
County, Pennsylvania, September 13,
1739. The family moved to South
Carolina in his boyhood. In 1761, he |
served as a volunteer in an expedi
tion against the Cherokee Indians. At
the outbreak of the Revolution, he
was made a captain and rose to the j
rank of brigadier-general. With Ma
rion and Sumter, he kept the held at
head of partisan troops, after the
state was overrun by (he British. In
llebruary. 77!?. he defeated a party of
Tories at Kettle Creek, and was de
feated himself at the battle of Cow
pens, he commanded the militia. For
bis conduct on this occasion. Con
gress voted him a sword. In Juno, he
took the British forts at Augusta, af
ter a siege Of two Weeks. At the bat
tle of Eutaw springs, be commanded
a brigade of South Carolina, militia.
He served his people 111 many ways,
from the close of the war to the year;
1801, when be retired from public
life. He died at Tomasso Pen die to II
District, South Carolina, August 18th,
These men carried on that kind of
war-fare that was safest for their
country and most fatal to the enemy.
The men, whom these great partisans
led. drove away the armies of the In
vaders, and won the final victory for
the American cause.
