DARK CORN RR.
Dark Corner, Nov. 6.?Well Mr.
Kilitor as you set up my last squib,
a' least the Dark Corner, I will cgain
enter your sanctum with my prettiest
bow. There is nothing of an inter?
esting nature In this neck of the
woods at this time. Farmers are
nearly done gathering their,, crops.
There is some few that have not got
ail of their corn In. But there is but
little cotton in the fields. Potatoes
turned out (where dug) fairly well.
And cane promises very good.
No sickness, no marriages or deaths
to report. And everything is calm
and serene. I spent the first part of
the week in your city in attendance
on court and had a pretty busy time
of it. As there was but two cases
tried to a finsh. and one started
(Hunter against Alfred Owen) that
was never carried out, and one set
for next Wednesday, and I am on it,
besides being on two of the others.
And I am forced to wonder what the
lawyers have got against a poor old
Rebel like me that they put me on
every case they can when I am on
the Jury in your city. It surely seems
as if they have a spite against poor
simple me or they would have shown
me some mercy. But they sure kept
me and Dave Dick together from
Monday morning until we left on
Thursday, and I suppose we will have
to be togethr next Wednesday to try
Barton Levan's case.
I beg leave to return thanks to our
worthy Supervisor Peter M. Pitts and
his kind wife, Mr. and Mrs. George
Just Brown, Mrs. Hampton Xorris
and others for their kindness while in
your city. May all of their shadows
never grow less, but may their paths
grow brighter daily until it burst into
that eternal day.

OUR SCMMKRTON LETTKR.
Summerton, Nov 8.?According: to
the frequent assertions on the part of
the farmers of this section the cotton
crop In this locality is about "done;"
and consequent!} they were prepared
for a decline In price. There are,
however, some few who are storing
and holding and the recent sudden
drop will no doubt frighten them
somewhat. There are still others who
are awaiting a price propitious for
settling contracts made in the sum?
mer at 10 and 11 cents. It is very
certain that all can not be satisfied,
anl it is to be hoped that all will be
in some way benefitted by this sea?
son's high prices.

At the instigation of Mrs. Ellison
Capers and Mrs. J. A. James a meet?
ing of the married ladles of the town
was held at the home of Mrs. James
on Friday afternoon for the purpose
of organizing a book club. The Sum
merton Book Club was accordingly
formed with Mrs. T. J. Davis as pres?
ident and Mrs. E. M. Tisdale as sec?
retary and treaurer. This club is
nominally a circulating library but
essentially a social club which shall

It was the most obstinate mule in

of a train held up at a little wayside

were aliV.e useless. The mule refused
to budge, and the slant of his ears told
those of the passengers who were fa?

he was he intended to stay. Then the
aged African who was trying to load
him in said in honeyed tones:

The Effete Toreador.
A writer in "Success Magazine"
says: The bull-fight of Spain is doom?
ed. It is not proposed to abolish it
by law because such an enactment
might cause a revolution, but restric?
tions are being imposed, and a new
law forbids introducing into the ring
for the second time a bull which has
once killed or injured a matador.
Bull-fighting has come to be a dang?
erous trade, and since it is manifest?
ly impossible to prescribe rules of eti
quiette for a bull while he is being
slaughtered, it is evident that the "no?
ble sport" has reached the beginning
of the end.
Anyway, if we are to believe a writ?
er who describes the sport in a Paris
magazine, bull-fighting is not what it
was in the good old days. The pro?
fession of sticking rapiers into wild
bulls Is sadly degenerating, the fine
traditions of the past are vanishing.
Formerly bull-fighters had a pride in
their work; they were miracles of dex?
terity, they were "Napoleons of tauro?
machy." Now every village lad thinks
he is a mute, inglorious toreador and
the fatalities are becoming more nu?
merous than on the Spanish railways.
We suggest to our Spanish neigh?
bors, if they must have their bull?
fights, that the animal have his front
legs tied together and his horns cov?
ered with plush, while the matador be
armed with a gatling gun and fuse of
nitro-glycerlne. With proper precau?
tion bull-righting may be made a safe
and pleasant diversion for young and
The average yearly expenditure of a
pupil in the public schools of this
country is given as $28.35 in the re?
cently published report of the com?
missioner of education. In 1870 it
was only 115.00. Nevada has the
highest yearly expenditure, $72.15 a
pupil, followed by New York with
$51.50, Montana with $49.40 and Cali?
fornia with $4 0.29. In the South the
expenditures range from $6.37 for
South Carolina to $20.36 for West
Virginia. The new State of Oklaho?
ma spends $15.79, New Mexico $19.46,
while Arizona with $40.41 spends
$5.16 a pupil a year more than Okla?
homa and New Mexico combined.
One-third of the States spend from
$25 to $40 a pupil. The fact that one
fourth spend less than $15 and one
fourth spend more than $15 is nn In?
dication, says the commissioner, of
the nreat variety in support of public
education, and, I believe, in the op?
portunities afforded for school train?
ing in our various commonwealths.

Ark., informing him that his son
David W. Sealc had been accidental?
ly killed at that place. The telegram
gave no other information, and as yet
no reply has been recived to tele?

MRS. STETSON EXONERATED.
Former Head-Reader of Christian
Science Church In New York Vindi?
New York, Nov. 4.?Mrs. Augusta
A. Stetson, formerly head-reader of
the First Church of Christ, scientist,
in this city, was exonerated today of
charges of "mental malpractice," in
the report of a special board of in?
quiry presented to a congregation of
2,000 persons at a long and stormy
meeting in the big white stone church
on Central Park, West. The exonera?
tion of Mrs. Stetson was endorsed by
the members of the church, but a por?
tion of the board's report, which con?
cerned Virgil Ostrickler, her successor
as first reader, who had appeared in
Boston as a witness against Mrs. Stet?
son, was referred back to the board of
inquiry for further consideration.
Among the charges against Mrs.
Stetson, the most important were, in
effect, that her teachings had tended
to disloyalty to Mrs. Mary Baker G.
Eddy, founder and leader of the sect,
and that Mrs. Stetson had been guilty
of mental malpractice in bringing
Christian Science to bear upon people
who did not welocme it, "by hypno?
tism, mesmerism and similar meth?
The report of the board of inquiry,
which came after four weeks examin?
ation of witnesses, the taking of 1,000
pages of testimony and thirty-five sit?
tings of the board was a complete ex-'
oneratlon of Mrs. Stetson and a de?
claration of loyalty of the New York
church to the mother church in Bos?
ton. The report says:
"These false reports were engender?
ed and developed by malicious animal
magnetism, which is the opposite and
the opponent of Christian Science, and
they were circulated by persons who
did not properly protect themselves
against aggressive mental suggestion,
as enjolrfed by our beloved leader.

Dr. Herbert Gunn, who is directing
the campaign against the disease, said
that he had treated more than 100
cases here and reealled one death.
The disease had not been known to
exist in California except in rare in?

Sugar planters, the doctor declared,

into Hawaii from the West Indies,
where the hookworm runs riot among
the laboring classes. Their languor,
due to the ravages of the worm, made
their colonization in Hawaii a failure
and the laborers began to drift in

from the Orient have returned affect?

FAIR SOCIETY MEETS.
President Mobley and Secretary Love
Columbia, Nov. 4.?The annual
meeting of the State Agricultural and
Mechanical Society, held tonight, was
extremely interesting because of the
large attendance and the discussion,
which took a wide range on the fu?
ture of the society. The Fair Society
is now in its forty-second year, and
there are a large number of members
who wish to make it an association
that will attract people from all over
the South. President Mobley tonight
outined some of the ideas in his an?
nual report. There was no objection
to the re-election of John G. Mobley,
of Wlnnsboro, as president. This is
Mr. Mobley's third term in office, and
he has devoted much time to the work
in his department. The nobination
was made by Thomas C. Hamer and
seconded very enthusiastically by a
number of members.
Mr. D. G. Ellison, of this city, was
unanimously elected treasurer, suc?
ceeding Mr. A. Gamewell Lamotte, of
this city, who has served the society
for a number of years. Mr. J. M. Can
tey was unanimously re-elected assist?
ant secretary. For the position of
secretary there was a contest Mr. A.
W. Love, who has been in the sendee
of the society in that position for sev?
eral years, defeated Mr. Paul V.

such a surprise this was! With the
Odds uBaindt the Oarnet and Elack
and a brilliant victory pictured before

practically a conquest for the Garret
Almost to the last of the first half
Carolina held Clemson to a 0-0 score.
Then came the one touch-down of the
game. And the second half was the
greatest see-saw ever witnessed on the
field of many battles. Up and down
the field on kicks, frequent holding
for downs made this half an even
break with defensive football the word
Billy Hanckel, Clemen's star end. 1 y
a brilliant end run of 46 yards, plac?
ing the ball within easy distance of
goal, enabled Clemson to deefat Car?
olina. Hanckel was given the ball to
the end of the first half after Clemson
had used every effort to score, and his
great run placed the ball nine yards
from the opponent's goal. Robb tak?
ing it over easily and kicking goal.
The scoring ended here, contrary to
all expectations, as it had been pre?
dicted that Clemson would walk away
with her lighter rivals to the t' <e of
at least 40 to 0.
The feature of the game was Caro?
lina's bril lant defensive play. Noth?
ing but cold nerve could have kept
the heavy Clemson eleven from run?
ning up a large score. Time after
time the little Gamecocks would break
through Clemson's heavy line and stop
the plays before they got started.
Belser's great work for Carolina at
full-back was phenomenal. He was
down the field under every punt and
took part in every play pulled off. He
was Carolina's only ground gainer,
and although there was little ground
gained by the Gamecocks it was Bel
ser who did the greater part of it. In
the second half Carolina had her best
opportunity to score, when Belser got
under a punt, and after a fierce tackle
recovered the ball on Clemson's 20
yard line. gl
Today's game was perhaps one of
the hardest fought contests ever seen
on the local gridiron, and will make
an epoch in football history. Clemson
expected an easy victory, the Game?
cocks themselves anticipated a like
outcome, and the result was a surprise (
to everyone. Carolina was in the
game to prevent defeat; Clemson was
in to win. The game was character?
ized by sheer pluck on the part of
Carolina, and their great stand against
the famous Tiger eleven will never be
forgotten by those who witnessed the
Carolina's strong point was solely in
her defense. Never once did she gain
the required ten yards, and had to
punt for distance. Clemson had to
resort to the punt twice after time,
but area more successful In her gains.
Carolina used line plays solely in her
attempt to gain, only once trying a
forward pass, which was unsuccessful.
Clemson, on the other hand, relied
chiefly on her end men mixing in an
occasional forward pass. Capt. Ham?
mond did the punting for Carolina,
and Capt. Bobbs and White for Clem?
