TWO NEW AGENTS.
S. H. McLean Succeeds J. A. Burton al
the Southern-J. W. Denning Suc..
ceeds B. Cavenaugh.
The past few days have noted a num
ber of changes in railroad circles in
At the Southern depot Mr. S. H. Mc
Lean succeeds Mr. J. A. Burton as
agent. Mr. T. N. Parks, former billing
clerk, takes Mr. McLean's place as
cashier. The position of billing clerk
to succeed Mr. l'arks has not yet been
Thes. changes at the Southern were
caused by the resignation of Mr. J. A.
Burton, who has held the position of
agent for the past seven or eight years.
Mr. Burton was recently elected presi
dent of the Carolina Manufacturing
Company, to succeed Mr. M. A. Car
lisle, and assumed the discharge of
the duties of his new office on
Wednesday. He intends to devote
his whole time to the company, and
sent in to the railroad authorities his
resignation as agent, to take effect on
Wednesday. Mr. S. H. McLean,
cashier under Mr. Burton, was ap
pointed his successor.
The appointment of Mr McLean meets
with the unqualified approval of cit
izens of Newberry and patrons of the
road. Mr. McLean has been in the
railroad btness for ten years, begin
ning as agent at Chappells. On the 2d
of June, 1897, he was transferred to this
city, and served as ticket agent for three
years. Upon the death of Mr. Henry
Hough he was promoted to billing clerk,
and a year later succeeded Capt. N. B.
Mazyck as cashier, which position he
held until Wednesday. Mr. McLean
learned telegraphy while messenger boy
for Dudley Langford, at Prosperity.
He is a very young man and a native
of the county, having been born at
Prosperity in 1876.
The Newberry traveling public re
ceived the news of Mr. Burton's resigna
tion with regret, and it is a matter of
gratification to them that he will be
succeeded by Mr. McLean, who has hosts
of friends in the city and throughout
the county and State.
AT TIlE C., N. & L.
Mr. E. Cavenaugh, agent at the Co
lumbia, Newberry and Laurens road,
resigned several days ago in order to
enter the mercantile business here.
Mr. J. W. Denning, who has been con
nected with the Laurens office as clerk
for the past several years, has been ap
pointed agent to succeed Ml r. Cavenaugh,
and will take charge on Monday. Mr.
Denning was formerly operator at New
berry and has many friends here who
are glad that he will again make New
berry his home.
Sent to the Gang.
Mayor Earhardt on Tuesday morning
sent to the gang for thirty (lays Ran
dolph Williams, colored, charged with
stealing. It appears that on Saturday
afternoon while in the store of L.
Morris, on Main street, he reached in
Sside one of the showv eases and took
therefrom a wvatch of not very great
value. The wvatch was missed by
Moris, who susp)ectedl the negro. Mon
day morning Morris notified Policeman
Bedenbaugh, wvho made the arrest.
While walking with Mr. Bedenbaugh to
the police station the wvatch dropped
out of the negro's p)ockets. Randolph
pleaded guilty on Tfuesday morning and
a sentence of $25 or 30 days was im
posed. The negro p)referred the days.

A Pretty Game on the College Diamond
Tuesday Afternoon Resulting in a
Score of 5 to 4.
In an interesting game of ball, char
acterized by good, steady playing on
both sides, Newberry College defeated
Furman University here on Tuesday
afternoon by a score of five to tihree.
The game was close at every point and
the score was tied in the fifth inning. In
the eighth inning, however, Simpson con
nected with the sphere for a single and
chased Olney home, and in the ninth,
Newberry added one more to her cred
There was only one disappointing
feature in the game, and that was the
way the Newberry boys ambled around
the bases. There were two double
plays, both for Newberry from Rcesel
to Wiles to Harms and Newberry's
outfield was in excellent shape and did
Three of Newberry's five runs were
scored in the first inning. Cabaniss
took first because Furman's twirler
fonr times failed to see the slab, ad
vanc.d to second- on Simpson's hit, to
third cn an error and home on a passed
ball. Wiles laid up against the leather
sending it for an aerial flight to the
left fence and Merchant, after a short
absence, returned home. Roesel
was given first as a token of the ap
preciation of Furman's pitcher, while
Wiles went down on third. Merchant
hit and Roesel added the -third score.
Coleman and Harms took pity and re
tired the side. Furman scored one:
Rice got a single, and the next man up,
Holland, in a sudden fury, swung the
willow and the sphere, hit so hard that
it thought itself a balloon, soared with
in a very few inches of centre fence;
Wright connected and Rice was wel
comed home. Though she tried ever
so hard, however, Furman could not
land another man and the score was
three to one in favor of the home team.
For the next three and a half innings
things broke gently and neither side was
able to score. The second inning was
devoid of anything to make the side
lines howl-on both sides it was three
men up and three men down. In the
fourth Merchant beautifully handled a
hot liner to right and the fans went
wild. In this spam also on a grounder
to short by Clinkscales a pretty double
for Newberry was made by Roesel to
Wiles to Harms. At the end of the
fifth Furman tied the score after this
wise: Though Scaife wildly beat the
air Williams was given first by a glar
ing error, and the next two men re
peated the dose, Sublett fanning and
Laval reaching first on an error; Rice
connected and sent a beautiful fly to
left; it was a hit but Coleman went
to sleep and Williams and Laval were
both brought again within the family
fold on a single; Holland, however, was
next up and never having seen W les
except in a game of foot ball sent a .ly
in his direction and retired the Bap
In the sixth, though no score was
added for either side, the fanatics were
given a chance to make themselves
hoarse oy another double Roesel to
Wiles to Harms. In the seventh spasm
things pursued the even tenor of their
way. In the eighth Newberry made
the score four to three, Olney getting
home on Simpson's connection. Mer
chant retired side while gently ambling
down towards second. In the ninth
Newberry made the score five to three,
Roesel being treated to first on an error
and chasing around on hits, and scoring
because the visiting twirler went wild
and his catcher was not as tall as a
telephone post. Merchant at this point
dreamed the distance home from third
was only ten feet and when he got to
the tenth foot woke up from the effects
of the touch of the ball in a Furman
hand andl retiredl the side. Furman
triedl in vain to score but gave up the
