The election was held on Tuesday,
and the unofficial returns showed Mar
shall to have by a majority of six
votes. There are many rumors of
confusion at the boxes and of throw
ing out of votes for irregularity, and
representation of Mr. Webb asked for
a full recount of all the votes cast.
The committee acceded to this re
quest, and although the vote was
changed considerably in some of the
boxes, and the total number decreased,
it so happcnded that after all had been
figured up and some challenged votes
counted. Mr. Marshall was still found
to have a lead of six votes.
The committee threw out 147 bal
lots on account of irregularities. For
the satisfaction of their followers rep
resentatives cf the candidates made
a count of these ballots and found that
had they been counted in the official
returns Mr. Marshall would hev6 re
ceived a majority of sixteen instead
of six. There was talk of a contest,
but both parties now express their
entire satisfaction at the result.
A second primary will be held Tues
day to select a number of the police

* Trinity Ridge School. *
At the last meeting of the building
committee and patrons of Trinity
Ridge section several items of busi
ness matters were definitely settled.
Mr. Sexton, of Laurens was given the
contract to erect the building. It is
to be a four room building with largo,
auditorium above and a basement un
der it 22 x 30 feet.
It was decided to begin cutting aud
hauling logs on Monday Aug. 4th. By
that time a first class mill will have
been set up and ready for the first
log. The patrons of the school have
agreed to furnish all rough material.

Rev. Mr. Mitchell, who had been on
the committee up to the present, stat
ed that he had other important duties
that demanded his time and asked
be excused from further aervlce.
He was released and Mr. Homer
Moore was elected to fill the vacancy.
There are five men and two ladies on
this committee and they mean to
push the work to a rapid completion.
It is hoped that the building will be
be ready for use by the opening of |
the school year In October. Rev. Mr.
Mitchell, as a stimulant, offeied, with
his resignation to furnish at his own
expense an ice cream supper if the
builders were ready by the opening
date of the school. This is a liberal
proposition and we mean to see that
wo get it.
AH the four teachers have been
secured for the next session and we
are preparing for the best term in the
history of the school. As a patron of
the school I beg all my neighbor pa
