THE CARNIVAL BALL.
Immediately after the coronation the
Carnival ball will be given in the
Armory by the Knights of Pythias.
To this ball, to be given in honor of the
Queen, all the Knights and their friends
It' was expected that Governor Mc
Sweeney would be present to assist in
the coronation. Late yesterday after
noon, however, a telegram was re
ceived from him stating that owing to
sickness, it would be impossible for him
The Tent Shows and the Horns and the
Confetti and the'Visitors Have Taken
the Town and All Is Well.
Since Tuesday afternoon the Carnival
has been in full blast and the fun lov
ers have been happy.
The Midway extends from the public
.square down Main street towards the
depot two blocks. In all there are
eight shows, including the merry-go
round and all of them have been draw
ing the crowds.
Probably the most largely attended
so far has been Osco, the snake eater,
"the man who eats 'em alive," and he
has deserved the crowds which have
greeted him and pleased them, or rather
satisfied them. He is the genuine ar
ticle and seems to enjoy immensely his
meals, which include rattle snakes a-d
any other old snake.
The most popular shows with the la
dies and children are Marguerite, The
Eruption of Mt. Pelee, and Pearl, all
of them good, cleAn shows. Margue
rite, the statue turning to life, is lo
cated immediately in front of. the court
house steps. The illusion is complete,
and as the cold statue slowly changes
into the beautiful girl and again re
sumes the appearance of marble there
is wonder among the spectators.
Mt. Pelee is next to Marguerite on
the public square. Here the eruption
of Pelee, the funeral of McKinley and
the execution of Czolgosz are repro
duced upon canvas by electricity. The
illustrated song, "Hello, Central" is
Pearl, "the fat girl who measures 82
inches around the waist, weighs 529
pounds is only eleven years of age, and
has a father and mother of [normal
size, and a sister who weighs only 125,"
is receiving her share of attention, for
which, however, her managers seem to
~be more thankful than the little lady
One of the most amusing features
'of the Carnival Is the comedian of the
Pearl Company, Robert Anglin of Co
lumbus, Ga., l!ntter known on every
Southern midway for ten weeks past
as "Maggie." His make-up as a nig
ger wench, his numerous and appro
priate costume, his abundant witticism
and local hits, never fail to draw and
hold the largest crowd on every Mid
way. Commencing at Columbia on ten
dollars per week and expenses, he has
quickly made himself worth to his
management twenty-five dollars per
week and expenses, something that few
young men of nineteen can do in s0
short a time.
The Hobo King has been getting in
some "daring and death-defying feats"
of cycle riding and is deserving the lib
eral patronage which he is receiving.
The Old Plantation is on the minstrel
order and is the place to go for a laugh.
Among the f roe street attractions
Miss Clark, in her aerial trapeze per
performances deserves mention. She
seems to feel as much at home in the
trapeze acts as If she were on the
In addition to the shows, there are

held in the office of the Commercial

Tfl BOARD QP BBALTE.
aty Attorney Bicase Makes Several Re
commendations In Regard to the
Board and Other Matters.
The following letter from City Attor
ney Blease was presented to Mayor
J. W. Earhardt at the meeting of city
council on Monday night. The letter
To the Honorable Jno. W. Earhardt,
Mayor of Newberry, S. C.
Dear Sir:-I beg leave to call to your
attention the fact that a$ presently
constituted, three members of your
Board of Health reside in Ward 3 and
two of them in Ward 4, thus leaving
Wards 1, 2 and 5 without representa
tion on said Board. The Act of the
General Assembly does not specifically
state that one member must reslue in
each ward, but the intention of the law
makers must have been such; besides,
since their appointment one member
has changed his residence from Ward
5 to 3, another from 2 to 4 and another
from 1 to 4, and the fact that they were
residents of these wards when ap
pointed, I think, shows the intention of
the then mayor of having each ward
represented, and I feel sure was the
intention of the General Assembly, and
not to bunch them all together. Cer
tainly the interests of the town can
best be served if they live in separate
The Act reads: "It shall be the duty
of the mayor of every incorporated
city, town or village, by and with the
consent of the city or town council, to
appoint five persons in cities of less
than 5,000 inhabitants, and in cities ex
ceeding 5,000 the number may be in
creased to twenty." We have only so
far had five, and having five wards,
each has been represented. It would
not hurt to have a larger body if your
Honor deems advisable. There are
other matters connected therewith that
your Honor might look into.
I respectfully recommend that your
honorable body, the city council, peti
tion the members of the General Assem
bly from this county to have the mayor
of Newberry, S. C., made ex-offiicio a
member of the Board of Health and the
Bc.rd of Public Works Commissioners.
The reasons for this I will not set out,
but future acts will prove to you the
expediency of such an Act of the Legis
I further recommend that your honor
able body, the city council, petition the
General Assembly to pass an Act chang
ing the length of the terms of the
mayor and aldermen to two (2) years
instead of one, as now provided. My
reasons for this are plain to you with
out stating-them here.
I am glad to say that during the last
year, 1902, we have had no litigation,
no appeals, and that everything, so far
as the legal department is concerned,
passed pleasantly, and I hope profita
bly. What opinions I have given have
been accepted by the opposite sides and
no law suit has followed. In making
this report I only act as I feel best for
the people of the town and to put your
Honor in possession of such facts as I
feel you should investigate.
I"wish for you a pleasant, successful,
and prosperous administration.
COLE. L. BLEASE,
The letter was received by council as
information, and no action will be
taken until a communication is received
from the Board of Health.
One of the most beautiful marriages
of the season was solemnized at the
home of Mr. Jacob B. Fellers on the
evening of the 25th of December. Just
as the sun had shed its last rays of
glimmering light into the far East, and
dar,kness was fast o'erspreading the
earth, to the beautiful strains of Men
delssohn's wedding march, most skil
fully rendered by Miss Annie May
Bedenbaugh, the bridal party, led by
Rev. Mr. Williamson, entered the hand
some and beautifully decorated parlor.
First came Miss Bessie Wheeler, of
Prosperity, and Dr. J. C. Bedenbaugh,
of Angusta, followed by Miss Jessie
Glenn, of Anderson, and Dr. W. D.
Paden, of Newborry, Miss Ethel Pay
singer, of Newberry, and Miss Willie
Glenn, of Anderson, Miss Minnie Fel
lers, of Prosperity, and Dr. Leslie
Stribling, of Seneca, Miss Mary Shel
don, of Seneca, and Prof. J. E. Hunter,
of Clemson College. Then entered the
bdde and groom and Rev. Mr. William
son eloquently and impressively united
Miss Nede Sheldon and Mr. G. F. Hun
ter in t.he holy bonds of wedlock.
Again the wedding march pealed
forth, and the bridal party followed by
the guests of the evening who had been
so fortunate as to be present upon this
happy occasion, repaired to the dining
room where an elegant and sumptuous
dinner was served.
The bride and her attendants were
attired in white. I shall not attempt
to describe each dress, but sufilee it to
say all were lovely.
The bride is one of Oconee's fair andi
attractive daughters, and the groom is
one of Newberry's most sturdy and
promising young men. The many
beautiful presents the happy coupled
received attest the esteem in which
they are held by those who know themr
best. May they find happiness through
out life. T. F. K.

Salt pork is a famous old-.
fashioned remedy for con.
sumption. "Rat plenty of
pork," was the .dvicc to the
consumptive 5o and io0
Salt pork is good if a man
can stomach it. The idea
behind it is that fat is the
food the consumptive needs
Scott's Emulsion is the mod
ern method of feeding fat to
the consumptive. Pork is too
rough for sensitive stomachs.
Scott's Emulsion is the most
refined of fats, especially
prepared for easy digestion.
Feeding him fit in this
way, which is often the only
way, is half the battle, but
Scott's Emulsion does more
than that. There is some
thing about the combination
of cod liver oil and hypophos
phites in Scott's Emulsion
that puts new life into the
weak parts and has a special
action on th diseased lungs.
