and started an inquest at Geo. H.

examined stated that Smith was
struck by a Ford car driven by Mr.
bC J. Johnson, knocked down and
that another can that passed at
high speed, going in the opposite
directon, passed over the body an
instant after. The other-car. did not
"stop and the driver has not yet
been identified. Mr. Johnson stat
ed that as he^approached the cor
ner, he saw the man standing oh
the curb, and that just as he was
aimost opposite him Smith stepped
.in, front of the car, was struck on
the hip by the left light, and was
thrown over the fender into the
street. The next instant the other
^car passed over the body and did
'not stop. He stopped his car andj
took the Smith negro to the hos
pital. Dr. Sidney Burgess, who!
attended Smith said that he found |
?only two small bruises on the body J
?rime on the shin and the other oh;
?the head. Externally there was no*1
sign of-injury sufficient to cause
death. Smith was seriously un-?
der the influence of liquor, and his'
..death may have been, the result i
of alcoholic poisoning in conjunc- j
tion with the shock. ,\ . . !

Considerable work is going on at

greens; buiders', sand is being
laid, down and rolled,-,and Chair
man Brunson is hopeful that he
ha3 at last solved the green's
trouble. The greens have. been
troubling the.directorate ever since
the course was started; the grass
killer'that was applied did not kill
the. grass; the clay .that was put
on dried hard and rough: soft
earth puffed.and broke, and al
together the greens were far from
ideal .for putting. Mr. Brunson
has had a force at work, and has
given considerable time to the
greens, himself,. and they show
At the meeting, of the board of
governors Friday evening Chairman
Brunson reported that he was
making efforts to get a professional,
and was, instructed, to continue his
efforts! A "pro" would not only be
of, great value in helping to. shape
up the grounds but the instructions
he could give the members would
add greatly, to the interest . the
lumbers feel in the club and to
ward, the game.
At Friday's meeting Mr. K?rn
and Mr. EL C. Haynsworth were
elected members of the board to
nil existing, vacancies.
The Constitution of the club- has
been ordered, printed in book form
and a copy sent to all members.
Some of the membership rules are
pf interest: for. instance that the
membership of a husband does not
carry with it the membership of
the wife; nor the father that of the
1 son or daughter; that each mem
bership is separate and distinct.
Non-residents and temporar? res
idents, that is those who live in
?Sumter for not more than eight
I months in the year, can enjoy the
(privileges of the course at a fee of
j $2.00 a month for. men, and $1.00
ja month, for ladies. - Visitors in
I the city , may have a ten day card
granted on application of a memjt
ber.. Sons aijd daughters of mem
| bers between the age of fourteen
and eighteen years' may be granted
iprivileges when applied for, the ap
plication to be- signed by the junior
f member and also by ? the^ parent
I member. The dues for such junior
j membership , is $1.00 a month. The
j privileges of the grounds and of
the club house is restricted to the
members and accredited guests, and
the management hopes that there
will be no further trespass on the
courtesy of the club by unaffilia ted
players using the grounds. Mr.
Geo. D. Shore, Jr., is chairman ot
i the membership committee, and
I Mr. R- Brice Waters is secretary
and chairman, and these gentle
men, as indeed will any, member
of the; club, will be glad,to lo.ok af
ter all applications and see that
they receive, prompt attention,
j The governors at the last meet
j ing : requested the greens' commit
j tee to post notices that play must
? start, from the club house, and not
Ijfrpm the .tee. by the gate, and it is
hoped j^hat all players, will observe
this in future. There are many de
tails to be considered in the prop
er conduct of a course, and th?e
are. gradually being given attention
and put into effect.

the Portsmouth naval hospital suf
fering from internal injuries and
. W. A. Paxton, a professional flier,
is dead as a result of two plane
accidents, in this vicinity today.
Chevalier is expected to die.
Mrs. Chevalier, wife of the injur
ed .naval officer, figured in the third
accident of the day when the plane
! in which she was rushing from
: Washington to her husband's bed
side was forced to land in the Ches
apeake bay. One of the wings of
the flying machine was torn off by
the waves. All members of the
party, are reported, to have been
rescued uninjured from the crippled
plane by naval launches.
! Lieutenant Commander Cheva
lier, on . his; way from the naval
base to theJUhited States ship Lang
ley" this morning at 8 o'clock,
! paused in his flight over Lochaven,
as.a salute to friends living in that
suburb, when he appeared to en
counter trouble with his steering
gehr. After swooping, about in a
vain attempt to effect a. landing,
the machine crashed into marsh
in the rear of William Sloane's
The accident was witnessed by
numeruos residents of Lochaven.
The machine was demolished and
Commander Chevalier was pinned
.beneath the wreckage, sustaining
* internal injuries. He was remov
ed to the naval hospital, .where
,it was said tonight that his condi
tion . is serious.
Commander Chevalier is regard
, ed as the ace of all American naval
fliers. On October 26 of this year
he accomplished the remarkable
i feat of landing a plane on .the deck
of a warship, while the latter -was
going at the rate of six knots, an
] hour. This accomplishment mark
ied a new epoch in aeronautics as
i?a supplement to the navy.
During the world, war he served
practically the entire time in
1 France, and was decorated by the
f French, .English and American .gov
ernments for distinguished service.
'r- In many experiments in flying he
. has taken a conspicuous part, be
ing, the. - first American to fly his
I plane from the deck of a vessel
without the use of a catapult. His
home is in Baltimore.
: A^ .board of inquiry was called at
- the naval base this morning imme
diately after the accident occurred
and its findings will be communi
cated to Washington at once.
W. A. Paxton of the Paxton Fly
.. ing. circus, which is n winter: quar
ters near Ocean View, went up'.Tor
. a flight with a passenger at 12.30
'o'clock. A few minutes later, he
encountered engine trouble and
. attempted to make a landing. In
? order to avoid crashing into a
cluster of trees in his descent, he
threw his machine into a tail* spin
when about 200 feet in the-air. The
machine, was totally wrecked when
it struck the ground. The passen
ger escaped with a few minor
bruises, but the pilot was so severe
ly injured that he died four hours
later at the. United States Public
Health Service hospital. >
Mr. Paxton .was a native of Penn

'about four years. He was associat
