Springfield, AugUBt llt'u.?Special: Work is now under full way on the Springfield Electric Light and Power Company plant at Dean Swamp, two miles west of Springfield, Notwith standing the unprecedented scarcity of rain during the past year no ap preciable decrease cjan ibe noticed in the volume of water in the stream. There is not a prettier driveway In the State than from tbi3 place up to these historic old mills built more than one .hundred and twenty-five years ago by John Jordan Combea, and sold by him to Major Jack Fel der, who in turn" sold them to Capt.

It is the intention of the promoters of this enterprise that nas plenty of good honest home moniey beihind it, to foster small manufacturing industries . From the confines of the town to and beyond the mills for three mil'is in almost one continuous cotton ?eld. It is not a violation of any known law for this correspondent to state that he has never seen as much good cotton in one body as may be seen by making a visit as we did yester day to the extensive farm of Col. J. B. Stroman, just beyoad the mills, where we found four hundred acres of cotton planted individually by the genial Colonel, who, according to the best judges of the community will make five hundred bales of cotton on this farm, aside from the share crops and rented farms. It is am inspiring sight to stand in plain viev of this ir?:niense sea of I waving green standing from three to j four feet high in four feet rows, close lapped from end to end, and heavily loaded with matured fruit, just .beginning to open. Beyond, and nearer the river we found the two hundred acre corn field of Col. Stroman. This corn is very fine and will all be needed, as the Colonel has more than 250 hog3 to fatten.

MAKES GOOD SHOWING ORANGEBURG COUNTY SCHOOLS IN FINE SHAPE. The People Are More Generously In terested in Good Schools Than at Any Previous Time. The following figures are taken from the annual report of County Su perintendent of Education Livingston to the State Superintendent for the year 191G-11. The people generally are 'becoming; more interested in ed ucation?they seem to realize that it takes money to run the schools cor rectly. They are thinking, talking and helping along all .broad educa tional lines. From the great interest around, and the funds that have bcm raised to help build better and larger schools, it can readily be seen that the people of the county are awaken ing to the fact that a good school ed ucation Is one of the first requisites of life. The trustees are becoming more alive to the situation. They are paying a higher price for teach ers and consequently getting better service. Many of the schools are organ izing Rural Improvement Associa tions and in this way encourage bet ter education fo r their children. South Goodland, Four Holes, and East Orange have each raised about $150 for various improvements. Out of seventy-five districts, forty six carry special taxes for school pur poses. During the past year the fol lowing districts increased their spec ial tax: East Goodland 4 mills, Eu tawville 3 mills, Holly Hill 4 mills, East Orange 2 mills, North 3 mills, South Goodland 1 mill, Pine Hill 3 mills, Neeses1'3 mills, Bryan Academy 2 mills, Goodwill (No. 84) 3 mills, West Hebron 3 mills. The recepits for educational pur poses during the year 1910-11 in part are as follows: Balance on hand, 1909-10, $8,332.59; poll tax, $8,188, 3 mill tax, $29,172; dog tax, $1, 910; evecutions, $591.87; special tax $21,980.69; total aid from County and State, $9,555.57; total fund for educational purposes, $79,730.72; to tal expenditures, $71,575.45; bal ance en hand for 1911-12, $8,155.27. The enrollment of white pupils during the past year amounted to 5, 247, while the negro enrollment was 9,263. The average attendance of white pupils was 3,646; negroes, 6, 093. The value of school property in Orangeburg county totals $149, 505. There are 159 white teachers in the sohols of this county and 117 negro teachers. Ten new school buildings were commenced during the year. Four of these have been completed and the other six will be ready by October. The following are the new school buildings and cost: Oak Ridge, $1, 100; Eutawviille, $1,475; East Or ange, $1,700; Limestone, $1,050; South Goodland, $1,400. Two Mile Swamp,$l,650; North Willow, $1, 550; South Providence, $720; South Branch ville, $1,350; Cordova, $1, 850; total cost of new buildings equipped, $13,845. Doves Can Be Shot. Huntsmen who confine their ap petite to the smaller species of game will be pleased to know that within a few days they may sally forth into the fields and bang away to their heart's content?but only at one kind of bird, the modest dove. The stat utes of the State of South Cadolina prohibit these birds being hunted between March 1st and August 15th, so after the middle of this month hunters may 'go gunning for these denizens of the field. The season for hunting doves opens before the sea son for hunting any other kind of game. Bids Wanted. Proposals will be received until 12 o'clock, A. M. August 19th, 1911 by J. W. Smoak, or T. R.

Jo hanson, Wednesday August 16th. from 4 to 7 p. m., and Thursday from 2 to 12 a. m. And can be received by depositing five dollars. Committee reserves the right to reject any and all bids. Made a Good Talk. Prof. J. C. Guilds, Headmaster of the Carlisle Fitting School at Bam berg, talked to the your.g .people of St. Paul's Methodist Church on Sun day morning. Every young man and young woman in this community should have heard thb> talented and eloquent young man. Such a man as Prof. Guilds Is a positive force for good in the lives of the young peo ple with whom he comes in contact. We would like to see such a man as he is at the head of every graded school in the State. Edisto River Very Ixnv. Theoldest inhabitant never saw the Edisto river with less water in it than at present The government engi neers maing the survey of the river are experiencing as low water in the Edisto as has ever been known. It is practically certain that the river will never be lower than it has generally been this summer, but Orangeburg is expecting a favorable report by the engineers as to the feasability of opening the river for navigation. To Get Latest Books. The "six best sellers" will be at the Dixie Library every month from now on. This was decided at a re cent meeting of the Dixie Club and a standing order has been placed wilh a library association for these books. At the last meeting of the club, which was held with Miss May Riggs, it was decided to bold their second annual carnival sometime the first of October. VERLY BADLY MIXED CASE. The Peculiar Dilemma of an Orange burg County Negro. The Orangeburg correspondent of The State says a negro of this com munity in order to come into posses sion of a valuable tract of land, must plead guilty to either adultery or bigamy, laying himself open to a big fine or a term in the penitenti ary. Such a case is now in litigation in Orangeburg county and the out come is being watobed with interest. The negro was married in 1871. Shortly after this marriage the con tracting parties concluded that they could not live together and agreed to separate. The man was married again as was also the woman. The husband and wife of the parties died and they again took unto themselves a husband and wife. The parties were married three times. There were many ohKdren. The wife came into possession of a valuable tract of land and a short time ago died. Her husband of 1871 now lays claim to the land. Whether he was married to the woman is the question now raised. If the was married he is guilty of bigamy, and If he was not married he is guilty of adultery. If the negro answers not guilty to tihe charges of bigamy or adultery he loses claim to the property and it goes to the heirs of the woman. SPRINGFIELD VICTORIOUS. Defeat? Her Old Enemy Blackville on the Base Ball Field Springfield has forestalled Colum bia by playing off the championship game of the season with Blackville, her old time enemy on the diamond, and the victory belongs to Mike Glea ton and his boys who licked the vis itors here yesterday, "just like we used to do," and the score was 7-1 in favor of the local boys. It was strictly a pitchers battle, and the Springfield pitcher put the ball over where the Blackville boys failed to find it, leaving even twenty of them at the home plate with a distressed look on their physiognomy. Batter ies, Springfield, "Cash" Fallow and Bill Felder, Blackville, Dewitt and Odom. Blackville sent a large contingent of her splendid men and women to see her noble boys "lick" the "coun trymen" at Springfield. They came in splendid style, large touring cars, elegantly attired; but alas for their expectations, blasted in the begin ning and like that concourse of peo ple more than fifty years ago crossed the long bridge at Washington to see the 'blue coats" lick the sons of the South on that sanguinary battlefield known as "Bulls Run" their return to their own habitation was with the unmistakable signs written across their 1 beforetimes smiling faces, "we've been licked." Springfield is "it" today. "Boosters" and Baseball. Holly Hill, August 1 Oth?Special: The Orangeburg "Boosters" enliven ed our town for awhile today. The cars came in about mid-dav and made quite a good showing. There were about fouiteen cars with four or five men to each car. These gen tlemen were served with watermelon and cool drinks and seemed to enjoy their stay with us nearly as much as we enjoyed having them. Come again boosters, and be sure to bring that inspiring music with you. This afternoon a ball game was pulled off between Elloree an l Holly Hill. The game was an interesting one and was witnessed by a large crowd. Brilliant playing was in dulged in by both sides. The score was 8 to 3 in favor of Holly Hill. Batteries: Elloree, Baxter and Bair; Holly Hill, Bull, Russell and Bull. Booster Trip Edition. The Dorchester Eagle says: "The Booster Trip Edition of the Onange burg Times and Democrat on Tuesday of this week is a creditable piece of work on the part of the management. The issue contains much interesting and useful (information concerning Orangeburg and Orangeburg county. In this same issue appears a large advertisement containing the an nouncement that any business enter prise of $5,000 or over will be ex empt from all city taxation for a pe riod of five years. This is quite a contrast between Orangeburg and some other towns. Orangeburg is wide awake." Young Hero Rewarded. >Mt. Albert Appleby, of the I lolly Hill section has just received the bronze medal awarded him by the Carnegie Hero commission for having saved the life of Mrs. R. M. Harbi son about a year ago. Young Apple by, at the risk of his own life, sprang in front of an engine which was al most upon Mrs. Harbison, who was detf. and rescued her from a horri ble death. Mr. Appleby was awarded the bronze medal and $2,000 to be used for educational purposes. Cotton Picking Time. Cotton is said to be opening very freely and gathering the staple will soon be in full blast all over the county. It may not become general for a couple of weeks yet, but in a very short time new cotton will be on the market in fair quantities. The opinion is expressed by some that the early maturing of cotton is not indicative ot a very Iarso crop, hut the general impression is that this county will gather a large crop. Will Ho Sent Free. The State says the necessary equip ment for the distribution of the bac terin for inoculation against typhoid fever has arrived at the laboratory of the state board of health, and Quite an amount of the bacterin pre pared at the laboratory has been sent out over the State.

Mr. Jack Bryant, who has been in Charleston for some time is visiting in the city. The booster trip should become a permanent thing at least once a year.

The Booster Edition of The Times and Democrat was nearly nine thous and copies. It was the best and cheapest single advertising proposi tion that has ever been offered the business mon of Orangeburg County. Only two cotton fields were seen on the booster trip where the bolls had opened and the cotton was show ing its whiteness. One was near El loree and the other around Cope somewhere. The Walterboro Press and Stand ard recently issued a Trade and In dustrial edition that reflects credit on that enterprising journal. It was a twenty-four page edition, full of interesting matter about Colleton County and the town of Walterboro. We feel grateful for the many compliments paid The Times and Democrat Booster Edition. One gentleman speaking of it said he al I ways noticed that The Times and Democrat was short on "promises*' but long on "performance." Dr. Asbury H.
