Ashford's Ferry. Mr. Editor :-I4 notice that the Grand Jury has a.gain recommended that the ferry at As'hford 's be dis continued, being credilbly informed that it was not necessary. A petition was handed Solieitor Cooper, signed by every citizen, white and colored, both sides of the river, asking that the authorities puL. this ferry in good order, that. it was necessary. There is also a special act in, the statutes, empowering and requiring Fairfield -an4 Newberry to erect and keep a ferry" at Ashford's. Now, I wish to know where and by whom this grand jury is furn ished this credibl1e information, which causes them to assume the power to try to override the wishes of the people and the statutes of this State.

D President Taft to Appoint Negroes to Office in the North, Instead of in the South. Washington, Dec. 8.-That Presi lent Taft is going to appoint North rn negroes 'to office rather than outhei ones is the information t which has been pretty thoroughily h liscussed among the politicians of 1' Washington and elsewhere since Booker Washington was here last week. As a result of this policy it is. expected that the negroes in the South who are holding important n >ffices will, as their terms expire, be isplaced for the most part by u whites, and in turn recognition will be given to colored men in the North. The list of colored men bolding important offices in the South un4er the Federal Govern- " ment includes the. following: e Robert Smalls, collector of cus toms at Beaufort, S. C.; Henry A. Rucker, collector of internal reve nue, at Atlanta, Ga.; Joseph Lee, a collector of internal revenue at n Jacksonville. Fla.; Nathan' H. Alex. P ander, register of the land office at Montgomery, Ala.; Thomas V. Mc Allister, receiver of public moneys at Jackson, Miss.; Walter L. Cohen, b register of land office at New Or- t leans; Alexander ~ B. Kennedy, re- t eiver of public moneys. at New Or- n eans; John E. Bush, receiver of e public moneys at Little Rock. The course the President will ' take in the matter of. appointing Dolored men is likely to be .illustra ted in the selection of a successor y to W. T. Vernon, register of the treasury. Booker T. Washington a and other colored leaders have giv- n 3n their support to J. C. Napier, of n Tashville, for the place, but it ap pears 4,hat the President will prob ibly seleet a colored man from the b North. l Washington was in this city a Eew days ago, and it is. said that he protested when he learned that teither Vernon nor Ra,.ph Tyler, the Latter as auditor foj the navy de- 01 ?artment, were to bA ousted. Neith- t r of these pull with Washington. 0 Utopia School. The Utopia school is one of the nost progressive sehools in Newber- d y county.

Athough the enrolment of the school e' s not over thirty, the people have F een the need of an assistant teaeher, Lnd without delay elected one. Would ;hat more communities would lookr Dto this matter and see how import-] m*t it is. It The ladies havo responded liber- t< illy in paying their fees by giving fi hings to the school. Among these are lowers, tables and pictures. "Arbor Day'' was celebrated on li Tovember 26. It would have done IV myone good, much more the lover of t< he beautif-ul, to have seen the ]M rowd-not a large one, but an ear- G test one-that gathered at the school st hat day, and the work that was in Lone. The ground was ploughed and ir arrowed ready for he making of a re awn. Paths were artistically laid fi if. Several trees were planted, be- h4 ides twio rose gardens, and several m anna beds. The undergrowth which E illed the woods in front was cut 12 own and burned preparatory to D aaking a grove out of the trees that n< emained. This was -certainly not w asy work, and the people ought to ti e congratulated for it. Last, but iot least, the play of the children N vas not neglected. The rough grass he hat covered the playground was fi, urned off, leaving it ready for run- -ec ting on. A tennis court was laid if, and the children enjoyed a few b( ames that day. al Those who are contemplating or- ib> nizing an association ma.y see D rom the above what are sc:le of l he possibilities of such an organiza- ec ion.

There are few, if any, owever, who. have been continuous r on one job, during all the years. Before the city of Newberry had a >wn clock to strike the hours, the -atchman at the Newberry cotton iills struck the hours during the ight,and he has been doig this.reg larly and con'tinuously' since 1888: t had come to be considered -the tandard time nd many of the cit ,ens would regulate~ their clocks by he hours as struck by the Newherry otton mils, from seven in the, ev ning to five in the morning.

Bouknight and QOok Jerry oggans. During this time it was ill his' intention to return to Den ark, but a little romance entered to his life about the time he was ady to go, and before he heard om his father he had set up a >usehoWld of his own, having been'] arried to Miss P. B. Salter, of I aigefield, on the eighth of April, 4 ~70. This p-receluded his return to enmark, and he began life in ear ~st in Edgefield county farming andi arking at other- things during the t ne.
