The Estimate Made.

imade by r. \. C. \Vhitner a, t) thin
c' . of c.tablisliiig a system of watet
w orks ami electric lights. His estimat&
is as to thwe costof establishing a plant t<
furnish water and lights for the whok
town. What we want to get at is what
it will cost the town per annum for
some cornpany to furnish water and
ligihts. The council is securing othei
in formation and will submit a full and
\\ ater and lights ought to go to
gether. The meeting will be called a
soon as all the inlformation is received.
To lion. .1. K. P. (oggans, Mayor, of
-Newberry, S. C.
DEAR slit: In reply toyour request,
to give you somie idea of t lie cost of
a sVste~m of water works and electric
liglits for your city, I beg leave to sub
iit the following: A system of watel
works, giving your city complete pro
tection from fire, and furuishing an
abundant supply of water for domestic
purposes, would cost about $S,000,
Suci a systemt would extend all ovel
the city, and give protection through
about o double nozzle hydrants. Tht
ordinary pressure-frotm the stand pipe,
in the business portiou of the towr
would be about 5. pounds, which would
throw a streai 75 feet high. ''ht
pumps would be in duplicate, and of
such capacity as to furnish not less
than four hydrant streams.
A systeni of electric lights, furnish
ing both arc and incandescent lights,
for streets and domestic lights, would
cost about $15,000. Such a system would
consist of duplicate machinery, and
would be so arranged, that the street
lights could be operated independent of
domestic lights and vice versa.
If both plants were combined so as to
be operated together, they could be
built for $60,00u. And this would be by
far the most economical arrangement
for operation. With both plants com
bined, you ought to be able to get your
streets lit by electricity for about the
same sum you are now paying to have
them lighted by lamps, besides giving
your citizens an opportunity to light
their business houses and residences
with this convenient and superior
One of the greatest advantages aris
ing from combining the two plants is,
that your engineer is always at his post
during the night, with a full supply of
steam, and can at moment's notice put
his pumps to work in the event there
should be a large coniilagration, exhaust
ing the supply of water in the stan
pipe, and thus decreasing the effective
pressure. This arrangement is very
desirable, and is apt to have consider
able weight with insurance, companies
in reducing their rates.
Trustiag the above may be of some
service to you, I am very respectfully
yours, WI. C. WHITNER.

and had determined not in any event
o become the Democratic candidate

iiderable talk and discussion here.
The report, Mr. Cleveland's friends

iources particularly friendly to the ex
President, at one time unanimously
:hosen the standard-bearer of the party,
mnd they are loth to credit it. On the

eize upon the story eagerly. Some of
I1r. Cleveland's closest friends in Con
~ress, however, say they know nothings
f any purpose on his part to decline
he nomination, and do not believe it.
Congressman Tracy, of New York,
ays that some time ago Mr. Cleveland
bought of taking himself out of the
ield, but friends insisted that he should
iot do so, and that his duty would be
*o obey the commands of his party, and
o the ex-President agreed not to with
Iraw, and let the future shape itself.

ay last the little live-year-old girl of
~Ir. R. H. McCracken, a prominent
:itizen of this place, was in the room
vitha a domestic cat, when, without
yrovocation or the least warning, the
tnimal jumped at the child and bit her
mn the forefinger of the right hand, in
lieting a painful though, as thought at
he time, not a dangerous wound.
Mr. McCracken put the cat in a
loset and kept it there, to see if any of
he symptoms of bydrophobia would
ppear. The animal continued in a
erocious temper while confined, and
wvould eat nothing. To-day it died.
The little girl has been apparently
r'ery well since the affair, but Mr. Mc
IDracken took he'- to New York to-night,
wvhere she will be treated at Pastece's
[nstitute. It is almost dertain tlaat the
sat was mad.
This is the second ae.ident of the
sind that has happened in Florence.
['he first occurred a little over a year
lgo, and the victim was Mr. P. H.
Walsh's little child, which died.
