RURAL MAIL ROUTBS.
;ix Applications Now Pending From New
berry County-Congressman
Aiken is Active.
In connection with the petitions which
are to be forwarded to the department
at Washington from Sligh's, this county,
asking that the two routes from Sligh's
be made daily, it may be mentioned
that Congressman Aiken for some time
has been trying to get a. special agent
sent into this district in order to finish
up the pending applications for routes,
and especially in Newberry county.
Ile hopes to go over each route before
very long with a special agent and will
do all in his power to have every route
estal'ished that has been asked for.
Applications for six routes are now
p)ending from Newberry county and all
were filed in 1902 except the one from
Sligh's, which was filed January 24,
1901. Two other applications have been
filed this summer, making eight in all,
but these latter will have to await their
turn.
Congressman Aiken recently wrote
the department about this matter and
received the following in reply:
"Your letter of August 17 requesting
that a special agent be assigned toyour
district pending applications for free
rural delivery service, has been received.
The records of this office indicate that
of the 152 applications filed from your
district there are now but 23 pending.
None of the pending applications was
received in-ior to 1902, Under the rule
of the department that petitions for
rural routes shall be investigated as
far as possible in th . order of filing, the
routes in which you are interested wil,
be considered at the earliest practicable
date.
PROSPERITY'S OIL MILL.
It is Rapidly Nearing Completion -One of
the Best Equipped Plants in the
State.
Prosperity's cotton oil mill is rapidly
nearing completion. The ginnery will
be put in operation the latter part of
next week probably, and the whole mill
will likely be in operation by the middle
of October.
The engine and boiler and all the
machinery for the ginnery have been
placed, and the other machinery will b
put in in the next few days. The build
ing is very near completion and will be
entirely completed as soon as the ma
ehinery is installed. Work on the ware
house has begun.
The machinery is of the most modern
design, and the mill will be one of the
best equipped cotton oil plants in the
State. The building is of brick and is
constructed on the latest and most ap
lroved plan for cotton oil mills. Presi
dent L. A. Sease has personally super
intended the whole work.
The success of this industry will
prove an important factor in Prosperi
ty's material growth and development.
Under the management of the officers
and directors who wvill be at the head
of its affairs there is no doubt as to its
success.
THE MASONIC PICNIC.

lay was p)leasantly ar.d p)rofitably spent
by the Masons of Newvberry county and
their friends.
Addresses on Masonic subjects were

?Columbia; D)r. Win. E. Pelham, Master
>f Newberry lodge; D)r. C. TV. Wyche,
Past Master of Prosperity lodge; and
the IHon. R. T. C. Hunter, Past Master

yard, J1udge D)antzler, andl other promi
ient Masons throughout the State, re
tretting their inability to accept the
nvitat.ions extendedl them to be p)resent
md to detliver addresses.
T1he picnic was the most Pleasant and
the attendance the largest in the his
Lory of these annual Masonic gather

have b)en exp)ecte I near Prosperity.
All the goodl things imaginable were
there, and plenty of them.
Newberry county is a strong Masonic
couinty, and now has three active
lodges.

The Newvberry Oil Mill, L. WA. Floyd
manager, has recently overhauled its
ginnery at a cost of several thousand
dlollars, and is now p)repared to gin 125
bales of cotton per dlay, thus enabling

give satisfaction. The mill pays the
highest market price for the seed and
d.rnishes bagging and ties at the mar
ket price.
Flour Higher.
The late Go ;vernmnent report makes
the W(heat. crop thirty-five million bush
els less than last year. This means very
much higher floer until another harvest
in 19J04. All flour is higher now, but
the advance on Hransford's ''Clifton'
has not yet been as great in proj >rtion
to other flour. Howvever-, it is a mighity
goodl time to buy a supplly before it goes
still higher. I"resh flour constantly r

THE TOWN OF POMARIA.
The Attorney Gencaal Says the Intendent
May Have No Fear as to Validity
of Its Charter.
Mr. W. A. Dunn, intendent of tl
town of Pomaria, recently wrote to At
torney General Gunter stating that he
had been threatened with a suit in the
courts attacking the validity of the
charter of the town ifr he attemptei to
enforce the ordinances of the town and
to put fines 11ponl certLain11 offYenders. In
tendent 1unn asked the advice of the
attorney general in the matter.
On Wednesday Mr. lunn received a
letter from Mr. W. HI. 'Pownsend, the
assistant attorney general, advising
him to go ahead and enforce the ordi
nances of the town without any fear of
such a contingency. "A defendant
charged with' violating the ordinances
of a town can not attack the validity
of the charter of that town."
Mr. Townsend continues: "You
should not cease to attemlpt to enforce
the town ordinances because of an ob
jection to the validity of the charter
being interposed by pei.ons charged
with their violation. Should the ehar
ter' be vacatedl or set asidle it would have
to be done in an action for that purpose
brought by the attorney general in the
name of the State, and persons who
have been theretofore fined andl im
prisonedl for violation of town ordi
nances wvould thereby acquire no0 right
to have their fines r'et.urned or' to r'e
cover' damages by r'eason) of impr1ison
ment undler sentence of town council."
1t is saidl that a test case will be
heard at th)e next court.

PROSPBRITY NBWS.
New Cotton Has Begun to Come in-Chil
dren's Day at Bethlehem-Per
sonal and Otherwise.
Prosperity, S. C., Sept. 3.-Probably
the last of the summer gatherings at
Young's Grove was the joint Masonic
picnic on last Tuesday, September 1st.
There was a large crowd, an abundance
of good eating, and a feast of reason
in the eloquence of the orators of the
day. There were in evidence many
older people who do not usually attend
festival days. The general good order
and social inclination of the gathering
was quite a pleasant feature New-.
berry's jovial and cultured delegation
added much to the success of the occa
sion.
The Prosperity Graded school began
the fall session September 1st. There
is life again on the old school yard.
Several members of the Board were
present to set the session moving
smoothly on its misson,
September, the real opening of the
year is here, and everybody Is expect
ing something to happen in a business
way. Cotton will soon begin to move
in very truth, and if the price remains
up, a lively season evidently will result,
and we will all be 'happy and serene."
Mr. E. A. Counts' -new building is

Children's Day exercises were held
at Bethlehem church, near Ponaria,
August 26th. In our limited observa

takes the cake. Over the chancel was
erected a porch with a covering of
green and the arch rich with blooming
wild cleinatis. The exercises by the
children were illustrated and were ob
ject lessons to be seen as well as heard.
The character of the afternoon exer
cises is sufficiently indicated by saying
that Dr. Cromer made the address. A
large crowd enjoyed the (lay and the
dinner. In fact the crowd seemed to
A ve been larger at the table than any
wvhere else, yet the attack was trium
)hantly withstood.

In addition to this large discotint they

It is quite tiuuilsual to be ablo to bu I

is what this offer really means, for it is
only recently, through the solicitation
of Driggist Gilder & Weeks that this

fifty cents. They urged the proprietors
to allow them to sell it at tins reduced
price for a little while, agreein to sell
a certain amott. The result has jus
