THE FIREMEN OF 'NEWBERRY.
Annual Inspection and Parade-A Splen
did Turn Out-The Banquet Last Night.
The annual parade of the fire depart
ment of Newberry was held yesterday
afternoon, at 5 o'clock. The parade
was in command of Chief Mongtom
The hour of the parade had been
fixed at 4 o'clock, but there was such a
downpour of rain the entire afternoon
it appeared that the elements would
reign supreme. The firemen of New
berry have battled successfully with
the fire king too often, however, to be
daunted by their natural ally. So they
turned out in full force and presented a
splendid appearance notwithstanding
the rain and mud.
The parade was headed by the New
berry band, and next came the Excel
sior Fire Company with its two reel
teams; then the Eagle Fire Company
with its reel teams, and last the Young
America Truck Company.
After taking in the principal streets.
the firemen passed in inspection before
the City Council.and the Board of
Mayor Jones made a speech in which
he complimented the firemen very

THE BANQUET. C
The firemen and their invited guests t
held a sumptuous banquet at the New

Mr. Geo. B. Cromer presented the
gold medal to the successful team in
the reel contest. -
The following were the toasts:

The New Schedule.
The "something better" that our z
friend Ball of the Laurens Ad
vertiser has been calling for seems to e
have come in the new schedule on the a
C. & G. road, for our Laurens friends c
now have a quick and clear route to I
the seaboard. The new schedule is ]
very convenient for any one going to ]
the North, or to Charleston, Savannah c
or Augusta. Close connections are made 1j
at Columbia for those points. It is also i
a great improvement over the way
people in these parts had to get to Glennr
Springs and Western North Carolina 1
last summer. By going to Alston from e
Newberry on the train leaving at 11.19 ~
a. in., there is a wait of four hours at
Aston, from 12 20 p. m. to 4.30 p. in., 3
for the Asheville train that leaves j
Columbia at 3.50 p. mn. It arrives at e
Spartanburg at 6.30 p. in., in time for
the trip to be made to Glenn Springs in
the cooler part of the day, which will ]
be refreshing, no doubt, after the time
spent in viewing the Broad at Aiston.
The new schedule is published in
full this week.
Coast Line Notes. f
TIhe Atlantic Coast Line has put on
their summer excursion rates, good c
from June 1st to October 31st. The 'I
rates to the resorts in Western North ~
Carolina are: Tryon, $5.60; Henderson- a
ville, $6.40; Asheville, $7.03; Hot s
Springs, $8.00; Waynesville. $7.80.
The traveler has the choice of two
routes to the above points-one by way I
of Clinton and Greenwood and the Port
Royal and Western Carolina road to
Spartan burg. The other is by way of
Clinton and Carlisle-the junction of
the G. C. & N. with the R. & D. road
thence to Spartanburg. Close connec
tions are made by either route.
The road has also fitted up a neat
pavilion at Little Mountain for the use
of picnic parties, and it affords protec
tion from the weather. The round trip
from Newberry to Little Mountain is
75 cents to parties of ten or more.
A slight change of schedule in the
mixed train was made last week. The
down train leaves at 7.30 a. mn., and the
afternoon train arrives at 7.14 p. m.

The Time for the Primary Fixed.
According to previous announce

House on last Saturday. There was
barely a gioruin present. The object
of t be meeting was to arrange for the
holding of the primary to nominate a
candidate for Senator to succeed Sen
ator Sligh. Mr. Harry H. Blease, the
County Chairman, was not present,
and the Committee was called to order
by Mr. C. L. Blease, who stated that
his brother was temporarily absent
from the county and that he was
asked to make this statement of his
temporary absence. The first business
was the election of a temporary chair
man, and on motion Mr. C. L. Blease
The first primary was fixed for

be held two weeks later.
None of the members seemed ready

but it was finally decided that each

confirmed by the Committee.
Another meeting is to be held next
Saturday, at one o'clock, and the man
agers will be announced at that meet
The committee decided that new
club rolls would have to be made up
and furnished the Secretary of the

since the last election he would be
given the privilege of signing the club t
roll. This is very important, because i

sympathy ; by words of tenderness and

ens in fancy free, he invited them to
dine, thinking of course that they
would not be present to test his culti
vation of arts culinary and domestic.
The bill of fare he named was ne
fox-and- itork fable affair, and at the
hour appointed the fair ones, with a.
married lady friend as chape:one,
started out to enjoy the tempting bill
of fare off'ered by our boastful baclt elor I
friend. He was completely set back
by their appearance, as their visit was
totally unlocked-for by him. He
made the best of the affair under the
circumstances, and actually w:as able,
after he recovered his composure, to
perform the honors of the occasion in
such elegant style that his fair visitors
will now gladly recommend him as a
firstrate khousekeeper, and he may yet
be a Bened.'ct in ail reality.

COL. JOHN F. HOBBS.
ie is Just from Australia, where hie is the
King of Two Cannibal Tribes.
LAtlanta Herald, 2nd.]
Made "a pile"; made a king of two
ribes of cannibals; run through with a
pear; writing five books; rich in expe
iences; but a few weeks out from Aus
How is that for a record?
Yesterday, Col. John F. Hobbs,who
eft Atlanta in 1890 for Australia, re
urned to the city. He was heavier
han when he left, and there was about
iim more of that general air of self
atisfaction than characterized him
bree years ago.
Col. Hobbs has been in journalism
td has had a great many unusual ex
yeriences. He is a ruling chief of one,
>f the tribes of blacks in the back coun
ry of Australia, and a ruling chief or
Ling of one of the cannibal tribes on
he New Hebrides islands out from the
.stralian coast. He bears on his body
he scars of a spear thrust which he re
eived in an encounter with the blacks
vhen on a raid with a squad of Aus
Col. Hobbs showed a representative
f the Herald a photograph of the fight
ng chief of hisitribe, Rabohouma. The
ellow is dressed in a suit of clothes
riven him by the colonel, and around
is neck -wears a necklace of porpoise
eetb. Each tooth represents a man
:illed in battle, whose heart bad been
aten in whole or in part by Ranohou
na. The fellow is thirty-two years old.
.nd is very much attached to Colonel
He speaks broken English, and one
lav said to the colonel:
"You eat umChinaman one,time you
to more tat um pig. White fellow too
ouch eat salt. Chinaman very good."
It is supposed the opium in the Chi
iaman soothed the cannibal.
These fellows fight with spears, clubs
,nd battle axes. Col. Hobbs has a boom
rang taken in battle by himself.
The colonel was asked for a state
aent of the causes that produced the
anic in Australia. He said:
"First they had the mine boomers,
nd tben the land boomers, and with
bese last came the building societies,
hat were organized to build houses on
he instalment plan. A general de
iression first caused the failure of these
uilding societies, the collapse amount
Dg to some $40,000,000.
"Last year the sheep-raisers suffered
-reat losses from the rabbits and
rought, and three immense banks that
lad loaned money on the sheep pro
erties were forced to suspend. This
aused runs on the other banks, and
he bank failures in the last two months
Dot up over $300,000,000. Most of this
3 safe, however, and the banks will
ay out as soon as they can realize on
"'You can have no idea of the terrible
asses the sheep raisers suffered,' con
inued Col. Hobbs. "'On one ranch
5,000,000 rabbits died or perished, and
he sheep were simply wiped from the
we of the earth, through the drought
nd the damage done by the rabbits."'
Col. Hobbs will be in Atlanta until
uly, and will then go on to Chicago to
isit the World's Fair. He is engaged
a writing five books, soon to be issued
rom the press.
[Col. Hobbs is expected in Newberry
ext week at Commencement.]
