Rua Over and 4e.r1ou.ly Hurt, a
A little negro girl was run over by l
Mr. John H. Wicker's horse and buggy, i
' "near the C., N. & L. railway crossing, T
Satnrday afternoon, and sustained in- Si
juries which it is thought will prove i
fatal. A negro boy working for Mr.
Wicker was sitting in the buggy hold- d
ing the horse, when it became fright- ri
ened and ran. The girl was in the bi
road, and in the attempt tg get out of s<
the way fell. The wheels passed over ti
her body, causing the injuries. y

"Miss Mary Law McClintock, daugh
ter of our Thompson Street pastor, is *
Lady Principal of Wards Seminary of
Nashville. This is one of the finest
nchonls in all the countryi and the posi

-one. Her scholarship' experience and M~
fine Christian character eminently fit m~
her for the work. The Presbyterian ce

Makiog the Road Ieapassab'e. 1#
There is considefable complaint from in
those who travel the road between se
Dead Fall and Newberry on account of tb~
the fact that, with the supervisor's er
*permiion, sand is being hauled out of t
the road at the bridge over Scott's thl
creek. They claim that the removal of thl
the sand is placing the road at-this da
* point in bad condition, and if it
continues much longer will render it pC
passable orily with considerable danger
to stock and vehicles. G

County Superintendent Werts has
completed his report of the condition
of the schools of Newberry County for
the scholastic year ending June 30.
The report shows the schools through
out the county to be in a sound, healthy
condition. A most excellent financial
showing is made, a good balance being
From the figures given below it will
be observed that there was a decrease
in the enrolment under the previous
year of 21 whites and 390 negroes,
making a total decrease of 411. Inas
much as there was an increase in school
district No. 1, including all the city
schools, of 74, this decrease is alto
gether in the county schools, and here
mainly among the negroes. The most
probable cause is the change in text
books made by the State Board.
With this decrease it will be seen
that the negro enrolment still exceeds
that cf the whites by 1,422.
The enrolment for the year ending
June 30, 1901, was:
