Y. M. Cfc'.A; BUILDING.
? I ?
Committee Has Arranged for Mooting
In Early October?Building Better
The executive committee of the Y.
M. C. A. are going to make an effort
to secure a building for the work in
Sumter. There is demand for an as?
sociation, and experience has dem?
onstrated the fact that there can be
no permanent success without a suit?
able building owned by the associa?
tion. The committee has arranged
for a mass meeting on some Sunday
afternoon in October. The exact day
will be announced later. At this
meeting the work will be presented
by experienced speakers but no con?
tributions will be solicited.
In discussing the ways and means
to begin this enterprise, the commit?
tee made comparison of the public
benefit to be derived from a Y. M. O
A. building and from a Fall Festival,
with the result overwhelmingly in
favor of the building. They therefore
make bold to suggest tnat the festival
be postponed for the present and the
money placed in a Y. M. C. A. build?
ing. A permanent investment will
thus be made which in their judgment
will be of great and lasting benefit.

Farmers' Bank *> Trust Co.
The statement of * the Farmers'
Bank and Trust Co., which is printed
today, Is. a mile atone-in ths upward
and onward progress of the youngest
of Sumter'e banks. The statement It?
self, when-subjected to careful ana?
lysis by an . accountant I or banker,
shows that the bank Is In sound,
healthy and growing condition,, that,
the officers of the bank- hare reasoa to
be well satisfied.. But- It Is only by
comparison that the real and unusual
progress that the bank has made In
itttk P**f ? can be graphically
shewn. 'The'statement shows deposits
of 1327,357.34?>pn, Sept. 8. 'Ot, the
deposits were only 1231,931.18. The
loans and discounts now amount to
$451,846.39?against $371,665.37 one
year ago. The cash resources?cash
In bank and due by other banks?ag?
gregate $81,826.12 against $56,039.73
on the same date last year. These fig?
ures show growth along all lines?
healthy growth and rapid growth.
The establishment of *the branch
banks at Summerton and Plnewood are
other evidences of the growth and
progressive policy of the bank, but the
branch banks, as yet have contribut?
ed nothing to the growth and strength
of the parent institution, not having
become self-sustaining. In future
they will probably do their full share
toward the extension and enlargemem
of the parent bank's business and re?
sources, but up to date all growth is
to the credit of the home bank

Killed by Lightning.
Simon Mickens and another negro
man were killed by lightning Friday
afternoon while riding on a wagon
load of cotton, which was being car?
ried from the fleld to the gin
house on the farm of Mr. T.
H. Clarke, * near Mecharticsville.
Another negro who was lying between
the two, who were killed, was shock?
ed and burned but escaped serious in?
jury. Two white boys, the *ons of
Mr. Bradley, who were riding on the
wagon escaped unhurt. There was
an unusually severe electrical storm
throughout that section Friday after?
noon and many telephone poles on
the Sumter-Bishopville line were
splintered. At Mr. W. D. Fraser's
place a team' of mules were frighten?
ed by the lightning and ran against
the frame work of the gin house shed,
knocking it down. The shed fell on
top of the mules, but they were not
killed, as a wagon with rack, which
was under the shed supported the
weight of the wreckage.
