Cross Hill, Feb. 16.-There is much
sympathy felt and expressed here for
Dr. Iugh B. Senn who has recently
lost one of his eyes. Some time ago
his right eye became severely and
Painfully- affected, causing much suf
fering and great anxiety. He went to
Greenwood for treatment where he re
mained -in the hospital under special
treatment two or three -weeks. After
suffering the loss of his sight in this
organ he returned home for a few days
when it was decided by his physilians
that it would be best to remove the
ball -to prevent further spread of the
affection. Last week lie went to the
Chester Hospital for this purpose. The
6peration was performed Friday night'
and a message from Mrs. Benn Satur
day stated that he is doing very well.
It is thought his left eye can be saved
from injury. His father, Dr. Senn of
Xewberry County, 'and other physi
clans, as well as Mrs. Senn, were with
him. It is hopad now that his pain
and any other injury will cease.
Mr. W. H. Leaman, one of the sales
men in J. H. 'Rasor's grocery depart
ment, has been iuite sick for several
days. It was thought at first he was
affected with sciatic rheumatism but
a further examination revealed the
Possibility that some other comilica
tions may exist. It is hoped now that
whatever the trouble it may yield to
the treatment of attending physicians.
M1r. Gcorge Boozer, who has been
quite feeble for some time, is thought
to be somewhat .improved. Miss Carry
Goodnian, a trained nurse, is with him.

237, Gray Court, S. C.
Our camp will hold its next regu
lar meeting on Wednesday evening,
Feb. 25th at 7:30 P. M. There will be
work in all degrees. In addition to
this it is very necessary that all mem
bers hulding Sov. certificates, see the
clerk at that time or before. There
are over 300 of our members who hold
Sov. certificates. So far only about 125
have seen the clerk and chosen their
aptions. It is of vital interest to the
other 175 that they attend to this at
once as the time for selecting options
expireb .March 1st. This is the fourth
appeal we have made to you, and we
hope you -will not fail to respond this
time before the time expires, as it is
much better to choose your own option
than to let the iSov. Camp do so.
Let all members 40 years of age
and under bring policies with them.

Capt. -Mc-Swain said that he agreed
vith Dr. Fletcher on the' important
lucstion of constitutional practice in

"I think, however, that there Is
something more important than the
