Health Officer Reardon Visits Darlington.
At the request of Dr. C. P. Osteen,
Health Officer Reardon spent Thurs?
day in Darlington for the purpose of
disinfecting several rooms where
there have been cases of diphtheria,
and to sl ow the Darlington health
officer what steps to take to control !
contagious diseases and how to disin?
fect infected places. Health Officer
Douglass, of Darlington was much in?
terested and ah apt pupil and readily
caught on to the process. There are
several cases of diphtheria in Dar?
lington, but the cases are under strict
quarantine, and the Board of Health
and City Council are doing the right
thing to stamp out the disease.
Health Officer Reardon was request?
ed to disinfect several other resi?
dences, but the Sumter Health Officer
could not remain to do so.
Mr. Reardon was much pleased with
the city of Darlington and its people
and thinks that city a clean, delight?
ful place to live in.
They need, however, to pay more
attention to the disinfecting after in?
fectious and contagious diseases, and
this was why Mr. Reardon was asked
to go over and show how the work
should be done. It is said that his
visit will result in better disinfecting
The crowd on the excursion trains
this morning did not appear to be as
large as in previous years. The first
section in charge of Conductor Webb
had five coaches well filled, but the
second section, which was composed
of five coaches also, was not at all
crowded. In fact two of the coaches
had but few people in them when the
train left the station.
Supervisor Seale has not abandoned
his purpose to improve the Stateburg
road near Mr. Bob Edens' place, but
will take up that work as soon as the
work on Main street is finished. Mr
Edens' offer to pay $100 toward the
work on the Stateburg road holds good
until November and he has no idea
of withdrawing it,; ? _
THREE KILLED BY LIGHTNING.
Negro Woman and Two Children Instantly
Killed and a Baby Severely injured.
Sarah Polite, colored, and two chil?
dren who lived on Mr. S. S. Davis'
place, seven miles southeast of this
city, were killed by lightning about 6
o'clock Thursday afternoon. The acci?
dent happened just as the storm came
up and the woman was in the act of
closing a window when she was
struck. The children, two boys, were
standing nearby and they were also
instantly killed. A baby, which the
woman was holding in her arms, was
seriously injured and may die. It was
thrown across the room by the force
of the electric current and when pick?
ed up, was unconscious.
Coroner blowers was notified of the
accident, but as there was no doubt
concerning the cause of the death of
the woman and children he decided
that an inquest was unnecessary.
KNOCKED OUT WITH A BRICK.
Country Negroes Fight With Serious
Mose Crosson and Dick Brown two
country negroes got into a difficulty
in the alley in rear of Walker's store
Saturday night in which Crosson was
seriously injured. He was struck on
the head by Brown with a brick. Cros?
son and Brown had had a row a few
minutes before, and Crosson went to
Policeman Sam Weeks and made com?
plaint against Brown and Dick Gayle.
Officer Weeks told Crosson to go about
his business and he would see that he
was not interfered with. Crosson
went back into the alley and Mr.
Weeks followed him. As he entered
the alley he found Crosson cursing
Dick Gayle. He arrested both and
started out of the alley with them.
Just then Brown ran up and let drive
at Crosson with a brick. He was hit
on the head and was knocked sense?
less. Crosson was taken to a physician
and his wound dressed. Brown es?
caped and has not yet been captured.
Gayle was before the Mayor's court
Monday charged with disorderly
conduct, but there being no evidence
to show that he was guilty he was dis?
charged. Crosson was too badly injur?
ed to be present for trial.
THE PUBLIC HEALTH.
Sinecure is that of Health Officer at
the Present Day.
(By F. Prescott-Bullock. )
Hu ! 'pears to me dat Healf ofisah

slops, an kep'ng de yard clean.
Spec's dis yere place as clean as his
While expressed in rather a crude
manner, the above from the lips of an
old colored woman, voices the feel?
ing of many a person who is ignorant
of the vital sanitary importance at?
tached to the periodical visit of the
health officer to their premises.
It is safe to say that no other class
of public officials, whose objects are
for the welfare of the citizen, are
subject to as much vituperation and
enmity as that of the health officer or
sanitary police. And this feeling of
antagonism is not alone confined to
the illeterate, but will be found
among the most enlightened people,
as many of these imagine that a visit
of this kind to their premises is a
gratuitous insult either on the part of
the officer himself, or instigated by
the erroneous report of a neighbor who
takes this plan to revenge some
fancied or actual grievance. And in
many instances this last mentioned
idea has more truth than imagination
behind it, for it is no uncommon oc?
currence for a health officer to have a
complaint filed about the unsanitary
condition of a certain premises, and
upon an investigation being made dis?
cover that the entire place is in a far
cleanlier, healthier state, than that
of the one entering the complaint.
The position of health or sanitary
i officer in any community, is no sine?
cure, but one, if conducted and filled
I according to the letter of the law, of
extreme hard labor every hour of the
day, and often times, when there are
epidemics of contagious diseases,
throughout many hours of the night ;
and his administration of office should
be aided in every way possible, not
only by the authoritites of the city,
but by every fair minded citizen, for
in a great measure the health and
lives of everyone are entrusted to his
care and zeal.
In these days of rapid advancement
in all scientific matters, the impor?
tant subjects of prevention and cure of
infectious and contagious diseases are
receiving more and more attention,
and ere long the minutest microbe,
will have to be an early bird, that
escapes the net of the bacteriologist.
But sanitary science backed by all
the health officers obtainable, will be
useless, unless assisted and strength?
ened by the actions of the administra?
tive officers and the public spirited
citizens of the community. A perfect
system of drainage, an ample supply
of pure water, a sewerage system if
possible, streets kept clean of rank
weeds, garbage barrels regularly
emptied, impure milk, diseased meats
and rotting vegetables condemned,
all these would go far toward promot?
ing health in a community. Then in
addition let the sanitary officer be unre?
stricted in his duties pertaining to the
care of infectious and contagious dis?
eases, disinfections, fumigations, iso?
lations, the cleanliness of private
premises, the abolition of all nuis?
ances, and the^nost important pa?t in
the prevention of disease is provided
The ice cream festival, which was
to be given by the Second Regiment
Band this evening has been postponed
until next Wednesday evening on ac?
count of the weather.
The improvement of Main street
from the present terminus of the ma?
cadam pavement to the county line
near Cowpen Swamp is assured. The
city council ordered the work
within the city commenced on Monday,
and Supervisor Seale will begin work
with the chain gang at Mile Branch on
the same day. This improvemen'
means a great deal to Sumter, and it
will be the best of object lessons in
good road building under the most

oldest houses in the city-a regular
old landmark-and its removal is an?
other evidence of the growth and pro?

church. A part of the house stood
upon ground bought by the church,
and that necessitated its removal.|
9"A petition was circulated Thursday
among the business men requesting
city council to begin at the earliest
date possible on the improvement of
North Main street. Council was
urged to complete the macadam pave?
ment from Hampton Avenue to Canal
street, and from that point to the city
limits to put down a substantial clay
and sand roadway. The necessity for
this work will be readily apparent to
anyone who is at all familiar with
the character of the sand bed on Main
street extending from the Presbyterian
Church to the Mile branch. This is
unquestionably one of the heaviest
roads anywhere within five miles of
the cityr and it should have been con?
verted into a fairly good road long
ago. North Main street is the most
frequently travelled public road lead?
ing into the city and unless the street
within the city and the public road
from the city limits to the county
line is promptly put into first class
condition the loss in trade that Sum?
ter will suffer will be very large and
will become larger and larger each
year. There is no reason why this road
cannot be made as good in. every re?
spect as Broad street now is, and if the
city council will start the work within
the city and complete it to the Mile
branch with dispatch Supervisor Seale
is pledged to take up the work at the
city limits and carry it on until there
is a first class, well drained, bard clay
and sand roadway from this city to
the county line. The work is impor?
tant and the business men of Sumter,
who have so much at state, and the
property owners along the road should
be glad to co-operate with the Super?
visor. Every acre of land within
several miles of the road will be
greatly enchanced in value by the con?
struction of a good road, and it will be
money well spent for property "owners
to assist in labor and in
cash contributions in the construc?
tion of the road. The road is impor?
tant, but the thing of greatest impor?
tance is to have the work done at
once. In response to the petition
above mentioned. Council held a spec?
ial meeting on Friday, and as will ap?
pear from the proceedings took the

Caleb Powers on Trial.
f Georgetown, Ky., Ang. 17.-Caleb
Powers took the witness stand in his
own defence today. He told the story
be has repeated on the stand on 'each
of his preceding trials, but denied the
story told by Frank Cecil, of Bell
County, that he was seeking someone
to enact the role of assassin.
Powers denied that he had any mo?
tive in bringing the mountain army
to Frankfort other than to show the
Democratic majority of the General
Assembly the intense feeling of the
Republican voters of the State, and
said it had nothing whatever to db
.witji- the-Goebel murder. It is evident
that Powers's defence this time will
be that Henry Youtsey fired the shot
that killed William Goebel.
Robert Noakes, a State witness, said
that at one time Charles Finley, form?
er Secretary of State, said to him thai
the best way to settle the contest was
to pay James Howard $2,000 to kill
Goebel. The witness said arrange?
ments had been made to kill Goebel

Montana Mob Law.
Butte, Mont., August 17.-Walter
Jackson, who is in jail at Hamilton,
charged with the murder of the six
year-old boy known as Buck, is report?
ed in imminent danger of being lynch?
ed. The sheriff has barricaded the
jail and the crowds talk nf cutting the
wires to prevent him from commui
cating with the Governor. Hundreds
of ranchers, aroused to fury by the
nature of Jackson's alleged crime,
poured into Stevensville, the boys'
home, and Hamitlon during the day.
The jail is heavily guarded and the
sheriff has declared he will resist to
the last. It is believed that the only
thing that has thus far prevented mob
violence is the request of the murder?
ed boy's parents that the law be allow?
ed to take its course.
Tramps Stole Bridegroom.
Olivet, Mich., Aug. 15.-The mys?
tery surrounding the disappearance of
Alexander Franz two days ago has been
cleared up by the return of Franz him?
self. Franz was to have married Miss
Winnifred Patten last Wednesday
hight, but at the appointed time he
failed to appear.
He says that he was robbed while on
his way from the station to Olivet and
taken captive by five tramps. They
took him about five miles and loaded,
him into a box car bound for Gosh?;
Ind. From there he succeeded in send?
ing a card to friends. Before aid came,
however, he escaped his captor and
started for home. Although he arrived
a week late for his marriage, it is
announced that it will take place
? When the great Episcopal cathedral
of St John the Divine, in New York,

the pormoters did not fix any definite
date for its completion. It ?s to cost
about $55,000,000 and is to rank with
St. Peter' at Rome, both in size and
architectural splendor. Although work
has been going on steadily for the last
five years, only one of the four great
arches that are to support the central
dome is completed, and the contract?
ors say that the whole structure may
be finished in another half century.
