As stated last week ;ol. Baum has
finished the survey of the town ai.J has 1
gone home to make the maps ati es
timates. We also stated that we bad
an interview with bini before be left
and we give it this week.
It will be seen that be does not have
any fears of being able to bore the
well through rock, and besides if he
agrees to sink it five hundred feet and
does not go that deep it will cost the
Now is the time for action. The
Herald and News favors water works
even though our fire insurance i-t not
reduced. With the better protection
that will come from water works the l
citizen can carry more risk himself.
But we only purpose to give Col.
Baum's talk this week.
WHAT COL. BAUM SAYS.
"Colonel Baum, what are the prospects of r
getting an artesian well in our city?"
"Very good indeed. I should say, from the
lay of the coun+ry suriounain your city." a
"But we have hard granite in this locality, c
and it lies near the surface. How about dri.1
ing through this granite?"
"i prefer granite to earth and quicksand.
At Cnarleston they have to go a'>out t,7uo V
feet. before reaching the rock formation, and
they are now drilling a well for which t he
contract price is $1' ,000 for a six ;ncb diam
eter well 4,000 feet deeo. I will contract to '
drill a well of the same size and aepth in
your city for $15,000."
"But would you guarantee to go that depth
in this granite formation." S
"I certainly would."
"If you contract to drill a well for our city,
would you guarantee to go to the depth P
agreed upon." n
"I would; and if I should fail to do so, the
well woulo not cost your city one dollar, as
I contract to go to a certain depth or no pay,
and I do not ask for any money until the
contract Is completed." s
"Do you mean to say, if our city contracts
with you to drill a well 5w feet deep, and
you should drill the well 175 feet deep and D
should fail to get any deeper, the well would
not cost the city anything ?"
"Not one cent."
' How deep do you think you would have V
to go for water here ?"
"1 think there can be a good supply of
water found here at a depth of iW to Stu
"Do you think you could get a flowing t;
well here ?"
"I do not; yet it is possible."
-Would not a flowing well be much more o
"I think not; and I will give you my reas
ons. In the first place there is not a well in
this country flowing high enough to- give g
your city a fire piotectiou, and you would be 1
compelled to pump the water from a reser
voir or tank at the well to the desired height
for fire pressure. The cost of pumping the
water out of the well with a deep well pump n
Is but a trifle more than puml.ing it from n
a rDservoir or tank; and then you can get .
t wie the quantity of water with a deep wellt
pump. I mean by this that I can put a deep
well pump in any flowing well in the South
and get twice the quantity of water that the
well will ever flow. And then another reason
why I prefer a pumping well to a flowing d
well for system of water works-the water j
from a lowing well must be discharged into
a reservoir or tank at the well. It is then
subjected to all the impurities of the atmos
phere, dust and other matter, before itis
forced into the water main for distribution,
while with a pumping well the water is
forced direct through the mains to the rest
dences without being exposed even to the t
atmosphere until it is drawn fram the faucet
inside your house, all connections from the
bottom of the well to the faucet in the e
house being made so tight that a grain of
dust cannot enter the water until it leaves
"Do you mean to say the water will go I
direct from the well to the private resi
deuces without first going into the stand
"From six o'clock in the morning until six
at night, while the well is being puiped, 6
theiwater goes direct through the mair s to
all distributing points, the stand-pipe re
ceiving only the surplus water."t
"Is it possible to find a sufficient supply of t
water in this granite formation ?"
"Of the forty-Ave wells I have drilled in
the South, all or which have been in the
granite f ormation, I have found the desired
quantity of 'water in all except two wells;
and these two wells were less than 500 feet
deep The forty-three- wells ranged from
10,00 to 500,000 ga.llons per day.
"Do you consider artesian water more
healthy than any other water ?"
"I will answer that question by Paying, I
have never heard of a case of typhoid fever t
where the person used exclusively artesian I
wefl water, and I do not believe a case of
this kind can be produced."
"Did the Council take any action in the I
matter of water works this afternoon ?" a
"None in particular. I requested them to
meet.as I leave,) our city to-morrow for ho me
and .1 wainted to consult with them as to the
distribution of main and fire hydrants before
cmleting the map and making an estimate
of te cost of the well and water works

'he sermon by Rev. Mr. Pearson was on
Sowing and Reaping," and barring
,me rather coarse illustrations was a t
trong and logical discourse. He is I
ot eloquent, but he is a plain and t
ractical talker, and we hope his t
ieeting here may result in much s
He announced after the sermon r
Sunday night that he would hold two '
ervices a day, one in the morning t
rom 11 to 12 and one at night begin- r
ing at half past eight promptly. If t
ou want to attend he requests that c
ou be there before the services begin, e
bich is a good idea. The night ser
ices have been well attended. t
An effort has been made to have the 1
tores to close in the morning for one I
our in order that the business men ,
iay attend, but so far it has met with
my partial success. Some few were
losed yesterday. If the 'clerks and
roprietors would attend it would be a
ood idea to close. Nothing would be

.rrival at Newberry is 2.59 p. m., and t
he distance between Clinton and a
ewberry is virtaally annihilated when a
ompared to the old schedule. a
The first run from Clinton to New
erry on the new schedule was made t
sst Sunday in 27 minutes. The dis
ance is 22 miles. The train left Clin- b
on ten minutes behind tiie, and i1
topped four minutes at Dover to reg

nile every minute. That is hustling. z
'he run from Newberry to Col- C

perated between these points, and is

Small grain has been very seriously

There is very little news in and
round here now, except the "witch
ry." The people are at fever heat,
nd this community has never been
o stirred up since I have been old
nough to know anything-but the
iine days will soon be out, and I hope i
ben we will all be happy and serene. I
rhe cause of the trouble is as follows:
r. Belton Stockman, of Stockmans,
las been taking lessons nnder a negro
-oot doctor from Fort Motte, Orange
urg. Mr. Stockman has been taking
mis medicine and using his tricks until1
1e has become crazy on the subject of
'itchcraft. He believes so strongly a
hat he is bewitched that he has all of
is hands-about twelve-and two of
is brothers-Messrs. John W.and B.F.
stockman-guarding his house day and
ight, and no one is allowed to come
ear. There are three or four st ioned
it each corner of the house; ti have
Ssmall pen built, and they stay imm this
lay and night-eat ond sleep in It.
rhey say they will have to guard the
ouse for nine days and nights, for If
inyone crosses the dead line day or
ight Belton will die. Large fires are
ept burning all night and small ones
the day time. He has had a ditch
ig all around his house and lye
acls of salt put in it, and the dirt
rown back into the ditch. He has
lso had salt and red pepper put all
ver his house floors to keep the
itches away. His guards are well
irmed and no doubt would shoot any
>ne that would disobey orders. The
ostofce and store is ' closed and he
will not allow anyone to get anything
>ut of the store, nor will he reelve or
eliver any 'mail. Several of Mr.
Stockman's best friends have tried to
tet to talk to him, but no one is al
owed to do so. The guards order
em to go on, at the same time draw
ng their guns-they seem to be crazy
:oo. The writer passed by last Sun
ay. I never haw a more solemn
~rowd in my life; in fact it is impossi
le to describe the scene-the only way
or anyone to know exactly how it is
s to go and see for himself. Men,
women and children pass the house
aily for no other purpose than to see
;his sight. The community is hard
lown on these men for the way they
ire acting, and if the negro doctor ever
eturns he will receive his just reward

A New Machine for Cleansing Clethes Is On
Exhibition-GoAnd See It.
Mr. W. F. Burke, of Quitman, Ga.,
has invented a wawhing machine which
does away with scrubbing and beat
ing your clothes to pieces, and yet
washes them white and clean without
labor. All you have to do is to put the
clothes in the machine with the water
and soap and keep up the fire and the
machine does the rest. It is a very
simple process. The machine is on
exhibition at the McCaughrin b.uilding
next door to the Ice House, where Mr.
Burke will take pleasure in showing
you the process. Mr. Burke impresses
us as being a straightforward, honest,
3eorgia farmer, and has strong en
lorsements for reliability from his
teighoors in Georgia. He has as
ociated with him in this State, Mr.
V. R. Smith of Chappells and Mr.
r.M.Anderson of Ninety Six who have
iven the machine a trial in their own
The Atlanta Journal has the follow.
ng to say of the machine and Mr.
"It does the work and no mistake about it,
ne Burke Automatic Wa'hing machine.
"This machine, which looks like a big
eam holler, sits on an ordinary cook stove,
nd although simple in its construction, does
s work ina most perfect manner. In its
peration of cleaning clothes the ancient
irinciple of forcing steam and boiling suds
irough the texture, thus loosening the dirt,
applied, but unlike the old method of beat,
ig and *crubbing, and tearing and button
reaking, this machine dissolves the dirt, and
is.uteamed out, leaving the garment clean
d white. without work of any nature, or
ny rough and injurious handling of the
lothes. No cranks to turn or levers to lift.
be machine is entirely automatic, and the
lothes are not touched until they are ready
rinse and dry. Sinply keep up the fire
nd the machine will do the reat.
"It is a well known fact that clothes washed
y the average laundry or washerwoman last
ass than one half the time they would it this
eating. scrubbins or rolling process could be
voided. Mr. W. P. Burke, of Quitman, Ga.,
as solved the problem and by his recent in.
ention your clothes are allowed to live out
heir natural lifetime, as it were, and not
obbed of half their existence by chemical
rashing Suids, the scrub board and the
"Mr. Burke Is a Southwest Georgian, and
omes to Atlanta with many testimonal of
haracter and reliability. He has associated
rith him. in a stock company, some of our
'ery best and most solid citizens for the
nanufacture of the machine and the proper
lacing of it on the market. This machine
rill prove a blessing to people in every con
lition of life, especiatly so to those who are
ompelled to do their own washing. The
Ingle item of saving in the wear of clothes is
'eater than the cost of the machine, besides
he work, time and fuel. The machine is
teartily endorsed by the people of this sec
on of the State who are using them every
reek, also by many or the most prominent
Nople of the city, such as the Governor,
tate House ofmeers, bankers and business
den, who have seen it work."
It is well worth your time to go
round and see the machine work,
