The origin of the fire is unknown, but as school was not in session, many think it was the act of an incendiary. The building was comparatively new and a credit to the people of the dis trict. The residence on the Culbreath place in Saluda county was destroyed by fire the latter part of la:st week. No one was residing in the house, and there is no evidence as to the cause of the burning. However, some people attribute it to the carelessness of negroes who were thought to gather there for gambling. The building wa~ erected nearly a hundred years ago. Mr. 13uck Culbreath lived there for many years, and in this house was EnenMr.James Y. Culbreath. THE HOSPITAL MOVEMENT. e Prospects Seems Bright-Citizens Meeting Decided to B uild-Com mittee to Raise Ca Stock. L The prospect for a hospital at New - berry now seems to be very encourag ing. The matter has been agitated here for some time and a special com mittee from the Chamber of Com f merce was appointed some weeks ago to look into the matter and secure 1 information as to the cost and the ] 1, best plan to be adopted for a town of this size. That committee made a very full and exhaustive report and a suggested that the best plan was by the organization of a joint stock com 1 pany, the purpose of the company not - being to make money, but to invest money rather for humanitarian pur- 1 - poses. It was suggested that the. company be organized with a capi- 1 I tal stock of $15,000, divided into six!. bundred shares of the par value of $25 each. At the meeting Monday night it was decided to' adopt this plan and the committee, which has been in charge (-fit, was instructed to proceed with the raising of the stock and to act as 3 corporators and to secure the charter. To this committee was added all of the physicians of this county, who are asked to cooperate, the purpose be ing to make it a county institution. i-The attendance upon the meeting Mon- i day night was small, but $1200 of the capital stock was subscribed by those t present. The indications are that the i stock will be secured without any Z difficulty and that the hospital will I be-built. t THE FIRST PPLAYER.
