LEE COUNTY AGAIN.
-
Money Subscribed For a New Survey and j
Other Expenses.
Bishopville, July 20.- " We, the un?
dersigned citizens of the proposed Lee
County do respectively subscribed the
amount opposite our names below for
the purpose of paying for a survey and
other necessary expenses that may be
incurred for the proposed county of
Lee."
The above petition was circulated
here late yesterday afternoon and a
good sum of money was raised for the
purpose of starting the Lee County
ball rolling. The country people who
were in town from the different sec?
tions of the proposed new county
spoke in the most favorable terms of
the county. A new survey will be
made and some corners, which were
in old Lee county will be left off,
while an additional territory from
other parts will be added.
The people from the different sec?
tions are much inthused over the mat?
ter and it is safe to predict a victory
for Lee. The four (4) years constitu?
tional limitation closed today-so the
election can, under the constitution, be
legally held at any time.
County Teachers' Institute.
The Institute opened well, consider?
ing that so many of our teachers were
at Spartanburg.
The following teachers were enrolled
Monday.
H. C. Bethea, Hagood, S. C.
Mrs. Bessie Branson, city.
Miss Mannie Dinkins, city.
Miss Essie Fleming, city.
Miss Mattie Gibson, city.
Miss Daisy Gaillard, city.
Miss Lilly Gregg, city.
Miss Hattie Hussey, city.
Miss Jennie "Huggins, Mechanics
vilie, S. C.
Miss Lillie Hussey, city.
Miss Maude Jones, city.
Miss Leona Jennings, city.
Miss Ida Reames, city.
Miss Margueritte Richardson,- city.
Miss Fannie Sumter, city.
Miss Edna Scarborough, St. Charles.
Miss Leila J. Shaw, Sumter.
Miss Etta Lee Shaw, Sumter.
Miss Mamie Sanders, Denmark,
S. C.
*Miss Marie Teicher, Sumter.
There is considerable change in the
curriculum, the object being no doubt
to make the session more practical.
My opinion is that the teachers will
derive much more benefit from this
year's attendance than from last. The
more I attend these institutes the
more I am convinced that the State
has the cause of education at heart.
We thought last year that our school
was just s?lendid, and so it was, but
from present indications this one will
be a marked improvement on it. The
reason of this is not in the teachers,
they certainly deserved credit for their
excellent work and would be welcomed
here ag?n, but for the simple reason
that we are limited to a few studies
that are in pursued in every school.
As for our instructors they need no
introduction to the people of Sumter.
From what the. writer has seen, of
them and from a consideration of the
work in hand he feels good all over.

Band Banquet and Concert.
The banquet at the Hotel Sumter
Wednesday night for the benefit of the.
2nd Regiment Band was a complete and
most enjoyable success from all points
of view. The attendance was large,
the spacious dining room being filled
until no more could have been ac?
commodated, when the banqueters
were seated at the tastefully decorated
tables.
The menu was elaborate, and the
substantials as well as the delicacies
of the season were served in abun?
dance. The managers of the Hotel
spared no pains to make the occasion
pleasant and with the cooperation of
their really excellent cook the banquet
was a most enjoyable affair. The
band gave an especially attractive con?
cert both before and after the banquet
that enhanced the pleasure of the
evening most decidedly.
The Winthrop Examination.
The examination of applicants for
the Winthrop College Scholarship will
be held in this city Friday, July 26th,
The responsibility for the failure of
the questions to reach this county in
time for the examination on the date
first announced rests with the college
authorities. The questions were sent
to Bishopville instead of this city but
did not reach that place until after the
date set for the examination. Several
other counties were in the some fix as
Sumter and the examinations were not
held on accont of the failure to receive
the questions.
DISPENSER'S SALARIES RAISED.

sary at the meeting held yesterday in?

Carrying Concealed Weapons.
Nearly a quarter of a century ago,
the death of a distinguished citizen of
this State on the''field of honor/'
generated a sentiment, which soon
crystalized into a strong demand which
swept over our State from the moun?
tains to the seaboard that the practice
of dueling should cease forever. So
strong was this demnd that the legis?
lature enacted the anti-dueling law,
and no person can hold any office in
this State until he subscribes to the
oath tht he has not fought, aided, or
abetted in any duel since the law went
into affect. This law is a complete
success, for the object for which it
was created, because it has the force of
the people behind it. It has never
been violated that I know of. Yet
dueling has its advantages over some
of the modern ways of settling differ?
ences, because in dueling, evreything
is supposed to be conducted in a fair
and impartial manner to the princi?
pals, tf one falls, it proves that the
other was the most accurate shot, and
what is settled there, is settled forev?
er, as it was fair and equal to both
sides. Of late years, the practice of
:carrymg concealed deadly weapons,
has become quite a habit among the
young men of our State of both races.
The old men don't carry weapons. It
would be hard to find a Confederate
soldier with a concealed weapon on.
What then is the cause of this custom
in our Christian civilized land? Is it
cowardice? No for lots who carry them
sprang from men who are no cowards.
Are not the laws of our country amply
sufficient for the protection of us all?
I would think so. Is it a going back
to the dark ages, when men went
armed. I would not think so, for the
young men who carry them are highly
developed in their education and social
habits. What then is the cause of it?
Is it not a spirit of lawlessness that
has developed in our land from the
mountains to the Rio Grande and not
confined to any special class?
It seems that those who carry con?
cealed weapons, do so for protection,
or in anticiption of some fray that on
the least provocation they are ready
to start, and often ends in death to one
or two. The newspapers weekly, bring
accounts of homicides in our land,
which in a large number of cases could
have been avoided and valuable lives
saved if it had not been for the too
'ready pistol, which has brought untold
trouble, for life to innocent people.
People go armed in our courts, for no
good. The leigslature has tried to
stop the evil, but the laws on the sub?
ject in the main, are dead^letters. Ev?
ery now and then, some poor violator
is punished, but those who so persist?
ently disregard the law are never mo?
lested. What has the newspapers, the
great expose and/ corrector of evils,
done to stop the carrying of deadly
weapons? Nothing that I can see.
What has the ministry as a whole done
to abolish the evil? Nothing that I
am aware of. What have the good and
law abiding citizens done to abolish
it? Nothing. So the carrying of
deadly weapons will go on, placing the
law-abiding citizens at the mercy of
those who go armed. This pernicious
custom should cease, even if the most
drastic measures are used to accom?
plish it. Let the good people unite
and put a stop to it, even if it be nec?
essary to make those who carry deadly
weapons lose their citizenship, as well
as other severe punishment. Better
that than to have so much killing in
our land. - United action on the part
of our people can accomplish the end
desired. Of course, Mr. Editor, all
young men do not go armed. Lots of
them would not think of such a thing.
The evil is here and it has got to be
abolished in some way, or our land
will rival Kentucky as a "dark and
bloody ground. Jas. E. DuPre.

MAYESVILLE NEWS NOTES.
Mayesviile. July 23.-The new gaso?
line lamps for the town are expected
to arrive in a few days and will be
placed in position at once. This will
be one of the greatest improvements
made in some time and the council de?

portance.
There is no sickness of any import?
ance in town now. The few recent
cases are all reported better. The
town keeps up its usual record of be?
ing a very healthy place.
Work has been commenced on Mr.
W. D. Mayes' store. This store will
be enlarged and altered, and when
completed will be one of the most
handsome places of business in town.
Other improvements in this line are
reported to take place soon.

HAGOOD NEWS NOTES.
Hagood, July 2*2.-At last the hot,
dry weather the people longed for has
come. How bravely they struggled,
with hope leading on. It was diffi?
cult if not impossible to escape des?
pondency. The only reason perhaps
they did not yield is it offered not
even a dry crust.
How patiently, how persistently
they battled against odds that seemed
insurmountable, and though baffled in
their best efforts, yet they returned to
the fight as earnestly as ever.
At last, when they had done all in
their power, and hope was yielding to
despair the skies cleared, the weather
grew hot and the land dried off. Im?
mediately they set to work with re?
newed energy, and now, after a few
days, by reason of close application to
work, the prospect is brightening an
the farmer is more cheerful. Call
them "hayseed" and what not, but as
a class they are the best, th> most no?
ble, but who so poorly paid for so rich
, desert?
But you want to know what is the
crop prospect here. It could and
doubtless would have been much bet?
ter as a whole than it is, but it could
be much worse. No one expects to
make a full crop of corn but some of
it is very fair, while corn after oats is
splendid. As for cotton the grass is
abundant in many fields and others
that are clean look quite discourag?
ing. A few fields here and there
promise with favorable seasons a good
if not a full crop of cotton. I believe
the crop is short fifty per cent.
It pays to fertilize: this year proves"
it. Every farmer fertilizing highly
that has a clean crop at this time, is
hopeful of at least three-fourth's of a
crop of corn and cotton.
Mr. W. J. Young of Remberts, an
up-to-date faimer as all know, will
make a full crop cotton and very fair
corn. Capt. W. J. McLeod of same
neighborhood will make from forty to
fifty bushels corn per acre on entire
crop. Mr. G. W. Wingate of Hagood
and some others have good crops of corn
and cotton. These men have plenty of
neighbors who will not make half crop,
corn or cotton.
The health of our community is
ve rv good.
Mr. Robt. E. Atkinson and Dr. B.
McLaughlin left Friday last for Glenn
Springs where they will spend a
month.
Mr. C. L. Emanuel and family are
in Wadesboro, N. C. We understand,
his little girl is critically ill.
Miss Brent Coppege, who has been
spending some time in our community
has returned to her home. Civis.
BISHOPVILLE NEWS.
Bishopville, July 22.-Bishopville
has 78 dwelling houses, or we should
rather say residences.
Mr. Jones, of Newberry was elected
principal of our school by the Board
of Trustees at a recent meeking.
The Superintendent of Education
for the county under the law will
hereafter keep $500 worth bf school
books on hand for sale at cost to pa?

figure that out of the $300,000 spent
for schools per annum in South Caro?
lina there will under this arrangement
accrue a saving of 850,000, may be
more.
Such laws warm my heart and
makes me feel as if the people will learn
to cooperate some of these days and
fully use their great strength for each
other such as "each for all and all for
each" and quit running1 after prece?
dent and study to lighten the present
need.
Bishopville enjoys the condition of
not having a sprig of nut grass within
her borders.

Doings at Glenn Springs.
This season at Glenn Springs Hotel i
promises to be one of the largest at?
tended and most enjoyable for years.
New amusements are daily occur?
rences. On Tuesday evening the
Messrs. Simpson ran a special train
over to Spartanburg and a merry party
of about thirty attended the weekly
dance at Glendale. Returning about
2 a. m., they alighted in front of the
hotel and gave the following yell :
Glenn Springs ? Glenn Springs !
Rah! Rah! Rah!
Water Soakers ! Water Soakers !
Siss! Boomi Bah!
The party was then escorted into the
hotel where a bountiful spread await?
ed them and which was most heartily
enjoyed by the hungry dancers.
The next attraction of this week
was a "nigger" cake walk, given by
the waiters in the spacious dining
hall, many features of which would do
credit to professional minstrels. The
dusky damsels displayed much grace,
but finally the judges decided in favor
of the "dishwasher" and his blushing
partner. A handsome cake was pre?
sented by the judges and was received
with smiles, and demolished with a
relish.
The crowning feature of the week's
gaieties took place in the ball-room
