The Commissioners Purchase Various Ar
ticles To Cost Over $4,000
To Be Delivered Soon.
The County Commissioners, at their
meeting held on Saturday, gave to Mr.
W. A. Neal an order for road machinery
at a total cost of $4,155.47.
Mr. Neal has several times appeared
before the Commissioners, pressing the
advantages of his machinery. It was
decided; however, that the matter
should bQ.postponed until one of the
members of the Commission should have
an opportunity to see the workings of
the machinery in actual process of road
building. Supervisor Schumpert and
the Secretary of the Commissioners,
Mr. J. B. Hunter, took a trip to Fair
field County and to Gaffney, in Chero
kee County, recently for this purpose,
and were very favorably impressed.
After hearing the report of these gen
tlemen on Saturday, it was decided to
The machinery purchased includes:
One rock crusher complete, including
elevator, bend, and screens.
One traction engine.
One road machine.
Two dump cars.
One water tank.
At a total cost of $4,155.47, to be paid
in five years, in manner as may best
suit the county, and to draw interest at
the rate of six per cent. per annum.
The machinery is to be delivered by
August first at the latest, but it is pro
bable that it will be delivered a good
deal earlier than this, probably before
the first of July.
The machinery is of the most modern
design, and first-class in every particu
lar. The outfit, while probably not as
large as might. be used to more advan
tage, is nevertheless complete, and with
it rapid and good work may be done.

MISS SUMMER IN CHARLOTTE.
Plano.Forte Recital Given at the Presbi
terian College Highly Praised by Char
The Charlotte Observer has the fe
lowing to say of a piano-forte recit
given by Miss Susie Summer at ti
Presbyterian College of Charlotte c
Friday night. Miss Summer is
daughter of Mr. C. E. Summer of th
city. Miss Summer is a talented mus
cian, and has received the best trainin
in this country and in Europe. Ti
M iss Susie Summer, of Newberry, E
C., gave a *delightful recital in th
Presbyterian College auditorium las
night. The programme, strickly classi
cal, was rendered with the taste an
skill of an artist. Beethoven's sonats
opus 26, the opening piece, was worth
of special mention; the grand tone o
the Andante leading up to the Scherz
and then on to the solemn wail of th
Funeral March, which was relieved b
the cheerful notes of the final Allegro
The skilful fingers of the young de
butante seemed to interpret the
thoughts of the great masters repre
sented on the programme with wonder
ful insight and clearness.
Miss Elma Warburton and Miss Ger
trude McFayden assisted Miss Summe
by giving beautiful vocal selections wit
an ease and grace which reflected grea
credit upon their teacher, Miss Mathew
Too much cannot be said of the gran<
closing selection, Mendelssohn's "Rond<
Brilliante," with Miss Summer a
piano soloist and orchestral accompani
ment on organ and piano by Dr. an
Mrs. Fisher. With such finished artist
as these to assist, the effect was beau
tiful beyond description and was a mos
fitting close to this charming entertain
The Charlotte News, speaking of thi
Miss Susie E. Summer's piano-fortc
recital last night was a very succesfu
one. The recitalist showed every evi
dence of a thorough training, botl
technical and artistic. The broadl]
classical, as represented by Beethoven'
A Flat Sonata, the dainty lyric, as it
the pieces by Tschaikowsky and Chopi
were alike intelligently rendered. The
audience was dismissed in enthusiastic
mood with Mendelssohn's brillian1
Rondo in E Flat. In this Miss Summei
was joined by Dr. and Mrs. Fisher wh<
gave the orenestral parts on the orgrr
and second piano.
