Will Last for Three Days--Promises
to be a Big Success. g
Everything is now in readiness
for the Kirmess, which begins in
the armory this evening at 6
o'clock. For .the past two days
the ladies have been as busy as
bees in the work of preparation
and now the armory with its
booths and other attractions has
been completely transformea. Foi
the next tnree days it will be the
centre of attraction to old and
young alike,
The Kirmess, as has 'ceen an
nounced, is being given for the
benefit of the Commercial Club
for the better equipping of their
rooms. It is in charge of the
ladies of tha town and they are
all working for its success, and
from what they have already done
there i:3 every assurance of suc
cess in all respects. The contri
butions by the men and the ladies
have been numerous and there
will have to be some doing about
to get rid of all the nice things
that ha.ve been contributed.
The'Kirmess opens this after
noon at 6 o'clock and will con
tinue for three evenings. Each
evening the ladies will serve sup
per and all are urged to come to
the armory for their suppers dur
ing the Kirmess. The charge for
supper will be only 25 cents and
the ladies promise that they will
give you your money's worth.
Refreshments will also be served
each evening.
There will be a special attrac
tion each evening. This (Wed
nesday) evening there will be the
Lilliputian wedding, a most in
teresting performance by the lit
tle ones. Thursday evening there
will be the Eden Musee, which
will have to be seen to be appre
ciated. Friday evening there
will be a cake walk, in which it is
expected that every man, woman
and child in town will takepa.
This will be the greatest cake
walk of the century. Each even
ing there will be charged a small
admission fee of ten cents, which
will entitle one to witness these
interesting exercises.
Several booths have been ar
ranged and in each of these there
will be a com~mittee of ladies that
will have some tempting offerings,
including fancy work, refresh
ments, candies, etc., and there
will even be a booth it ,hichvou
can have your fortune told. Tlhe
largest booth will be the country
store in which you can get any
thing from a pig to a set of teeth,
so varied is the assortment in this
up-to-date country store. These
goods will be auctioned off each
evenfing and you bad better be
right on the spot so as to be able
to get some of these great bar
gains. Of course all the people
>f Winnsboro are going to come
and patronize the Kirmess and
help make is the success that it
ought to be. A special invitation
is extended the people from the
country to attend the Kirmess.
Ridgeway Locals.
Mrs. A. Talley Moore cele
brated her "tin wedding" anni
versary on Tuesday. Telegrams
of congratulation to the hostess
was the unique form of entertain
ment for the afternoon. Mrs.
R. C. Thomas received the prize
for the best telegram, a tin coffee
pot, and Mrs. Olin Sawyer a tin
pan of pansies. Delicious re
freshments were served in the
dining room where tinware was
used entirely. The menu con
sisted of chicken salad, lettuce
and nuts, with mayonaise, cheese,
- crackers, sandwiches, olives,cream
and cake.
Miss Eleanor DesPortes was
hostess for the Card Club at its
last m.eeting. Her home was
dainte' and attractive in Marchel

est score was made by Misses
Smith and Thomas. Delightful
sherry cream and wafers were
served during the afternoon.
Mr. F. H. Beall gave a very
pleasant fishing party last week
to several of his friends. The
crowd left town about two o'clock,
rturning about dark. During
the afternoon a most delicious
lunch was served the fishermen
and women, which proved a good
example of man's savage instinct
* to destroy.
The annual business meeting'
of the Ladies' Club will be held
at Mrs. Moore's on next Tuesday

Blackstock School Closes.
The closing exercises of th
Blackstock school were held Fri
day evening and the house wa:
well packed with patrons an
friends who had come out to wit
ness these interesting exercises
The exercises consisted for th
most part of plays and tableau:
and the children in all showet

most interesting numbers of thi
whole program were the recita

that he will not return anothe:

That new school house has no
yet been built, but it is prett:
safe to say that Blackstock wil
take this very important step a
some early day.

Death of Mrs. Sarah Stuart. I
Mrs. Sarah Stuart, widow of
the late James H. Stuart, died in c
Atlanta Friday and her remains'O
were interred in Lebanon ceme- i
tery, this county, Sunday after- a
noon. Mrs. Stuart was 79 years
old. She taught school for a few
years, her husband having -been
engaged in teaching in Fairfield
for many years and there are
many of his old pupils in the
county who still honor his mem- 1
ory. For eleven years she has
made her home in Atlanta. She
is survived by the following chil
dren: J. W. Stuart, managing edi
tor The Daily Courier, Texarkana,
Texas; W. B. Stuart, manager
Western Union Telegraph Com
pany, Macon. Ga.; J. C. Stuart,
Ed. S. 'Stuart and Miss A. M.
Stuart, Atlanta. All came here
to attend the funeral and left
Monday morning for their respec
tive homes. Mr. Jas. T. Williams
of Atlanta also accompanied them.
Keeps Columbia Talking.
There is one thing the people
of Columbia continue to talk
about and that is the continuous
growth of Mimnaugh's Depart
ment Store. The never ending
bargains that they are all the
while arranging for their custom
ers over the whole state always
suggest what next. Just at this
time they are making some of the
greatest offerings in white goods
that the public has ever known.
When it comes to dress goods and
notions they are always strictly
in it, a fact that the ladies all
know. As for millinery they are
easily the leaders. There is not
a single w.nt in the way of a
lady's dress that they can not
supply. They are no less thought
ful of the men, who will find that
they are right to the front in
men's clothing and all furnishing
goods. Their carpets and rugs
are always attracting attention.
Their magnificent crockery de
partment in the cellar is a great
drawing card. And just now they
are making all housekeepers hap
py with the glad announcement
that they are selling half gallon
fruit jars for 75 cents per dozen,
while for the quarts they are only
getting 60 cents per dozen. With
) leaders like these no wonder Co
3 lumbians continue to talk about
how their business is growing. If
you really want to get it, go to
Mimnaugh's. 6-6-2t
Miss Walker's Piano Recital.
( The Sate, Mfay 29. )
One of the most genuinely
artistic and delightful recitals of
the commencement series at the
College fir Women thus far was
the graduate piano recital of Miss
Alice America Walker, given in
the auditorium last evening. The
programme was particularly en
joyable on account of the fact
that so many of the numbers
were familiar to the audience and
Ifavorites to many music lovers.
While the programme afforded
ample opportunity for the display
Lof technical fluency most of the
numbers were of a style to demon
strate the beautiful tone and un
usual musical temperament of
the player. She entered into the
-mood of each composer with deep
feeling and maturity of uder
-standing and gave to each number
a really poetic interpretaton. The
entire programme was, of course,
played from memory and with
perfect ease and self-possession.
Help the Orphans.
As summer time comes on, the
togtof vacation fills every
mind. hWe are apt in our seeking
after leisure to forget that there
are ophans to be thought of and
cared for. Ask the superinten
dents of our orphans' homes and
without exception they will tell
you that the hardest time in the
whole year, is "the good old sum
.n. r time." Provision gets scarce
tn money a great deal scarcer
till. It is a splendid time to
comnembler the orphans then.
When the whieat crop comes in,
send "samrp~a-" to be tested by
he ni& it"' of .1 e little people.
Thbe 200 ;npils o: the Thornwell
Orphanage coud test several hun
dred bushels o' wheat, for the
neighboring mill makes the gift
of wheat es acce'ptable as flour.
And as for money, only $5.00 will
care for a little child for a whole
month and there are 200 little
childret. to be cared for here.
P.'ovisions can be sent to Thorn
well Orphanage, Clinton, S. C.,
and money to Rev. Win. P. Jacobs,
at the same place.
It is all right to preach that a
man should love his neighbor as
himself-it sounds so good and
platonic. But it is not always
possible. Take for instance the'
'man who has planted a fine gar
den and his neighbor has chickens
which he persists in permitting
to run at large. How can the
man with the garden love that
neigzhbor as himself? It simply
can't be done so long as those
chickens are not shut up.--Ex.

Reason for Bad Roads.
id r. Editor: In your last issuei
f The News and Herald I find
, few dots on good and bad roads
a Fairfield county. Will you
llow me to say why the roads
.ro in such bad condition:
1. It is no man's business what
.oudition they are, just so I get
;o town and back.
2. Overseers have hands and
vill not spare the time to work
3. Every man wants to boss the,
4. Everybody finds fault with
ihe county commissioners.
5. The county commissioners
stay at home and don't look after
what they are paid to do.
6. Overseers get tools from the
county and use them for their
own purpose on the farm and
then "cuss" the commissioners for
not having the roads worked.
I can point out two roads up
in the northeastern part of the
county that have not been worked
in two years, with overseers and
plenty of hands to do the work.
On one of these roads there are
no less than twelve hands, and I
understand none of them pay
road tax. I say pay the over
seers and there will be some work
done, and not until then. Let us
go along and try to do better,
and if we can't, let us swap with
Chester or Richland for a man.

Letter to G. W. Ragsdale.
Winnsboro, S. C.
Dear Sir: Two and two makes
four-not always; depends upon
what "two and two" are.
Two gallons of water and two
gallons of milk don't make four
gallons of milk.
Neither does four gallons of
paint that's half lime, whiting,
clay, and kerosene oil, make four
gallons of real paint.
That's what we mean by saying
"Fewer gallons; wears longer."
It takes fewer gallons of Devoe
lead-and-zine than of mixed paints
to paint a house, and it wears
twice or three times as long as
lead-and-oil mixed by hand.
Mr Chas Avery, of Herkimer,
N Y, bought 51 gallons of Devoe
lead-and-zine to paint his five
houses, his painter having figured
that it would require at least that
amount; 36 gallons did the work
and he returned 15 gallons.
