Mr. Editor: In reply to- protest to
the school board I want to say that I
hope that the ladies that carried 'the'
protest around for signatures, enjoy
ed their work, and that it gave them
lots of fun, but if they think their
~action makes me feel bad, they are
very much mistaken. If every, man,
'woman and child in this town had

.me feel bad. I feel like every man.
Ifeels when he knows he has done his
duty. I have a conscience within me
that says, right or wrong, I do not
need any set of women to tell me'
when I have done my duty. I know
my duty, and having done that I am
at ease. Respectfully,

quests that we,announce that he is
preparing the list of places at which
to hold institutes this summer. If
the farmers of this county desire to
have one of these institutes they
ought to get in communication with
Prof. Barrow at once. He says:
"It is planned to hold a large num
ber of these iastitutes during July and
August, and the endeavor will be to
cover the' whole State pretty thor
oughly. It is thought best that the
majority of these institutes shall be
held in the rural districts, at school
or church centres, ,rather than in
county seats or tQwns. In order that
I may plan the work effectively and
economically, I will be glad to hear
from all communities desiring to have
one of tirese institutes not* later than
the first of June.
"An excellent' body of institute
workers, men who can give practical
as well as theoretical instruction, will
be available for this work, and such a
campaign will doubtless be of much
"By notifying me of their desire for
an instit4ute by tihe above date the va

arranged it will be difficult to rear

thing about that voluntary fund to re
imburse the Newberry firemen for th4
ipurchase of the hose wagon. As stat
ed in the beginning no petition wil
be taken around to the citizens be
cause it is desired that the contribu
tions should be purely voluntary.
The responses have not been a
I prompt and as general as we expect
ed. The chief of the fire departmen
requests that the list shall close an
it is not our desire to hold it open an:
longer. The total amount contribute
up to this time is $60.50. The wagoi
cost the boys $150.00, and we had hop
ed that the people would promptly re
imburse them this amount as thei
services are given to the town for th
protection of the property withou
compensation. They have given effi
cient service and there is ample evi
dence of that every time the alarm o
fire is given.
We will keep the list open until
o'(Jock on Thursday, May 26, afte
which we will not receive further con
tributions. If there are any who hav
not contributed, they may 'phone thei

ANOTHER NEGRO MLLED.
On Sunday Morning on Mr. Jno. C.;
Hipp's Place Near Old Town.
Negro in Jail.
William Carter, a negro, was shot
and instantly killed at about sunrise
on Sunday morning, by another negro,
Arthur Stevens, on Mr. John C. Hipp's
place near Old Town. It is claimed
L that Carter went there for whiskey,
. when, shortly afterward, the killing
occurred. Constablp T. G. Williams
went to the scene of the tragedy to
look after the whiskey part of it, but
up to press hour yesterday afternoon
t there had been no report from him.

r promptly to the neighborhood of the
crime and served the jury for Magis

There were only two or three wit
t nesses at the inquest, all negroes. The
- testimony of the two principal wit

. of a pistol owned by Stevens, the slay
er, but which was then on the person
r of Carter, the man shortly afterwards
1'killed. That after the tussel with this
third party for the possession of te
1 pistol, Carter still retained it. That
when Carter started to leave the
e premises, Stevens asked him for the
pistol. That Carter then turned round
to give the pistol to Stevens, walking
back up to the door steps to do so,
when' Stevens shot him in the jaw
with a double barrelled shot gun,
killing him instant'y
The. other witness contradicts this
by 'testifying that when Stevens ask
ed Carter for the pistol; Carter said:
"You - - - -- -., I wily
kill you," putting his hand to his hip
pocket as he cussed. That thereupon
Stevens fired the fatal shot. .
The verdict of the jury was that the
deceased came to his death at the
hand of Arthur Stevens.
Deputy Sheriff Buford searched dii
e-gently to' find the whereabouts of
9 Stevens, but was unsuccessful. He
was told by interested parties that the
e accused would surrender himself on
Monday. Deputy Buford thereupon re
turned to Newberry. _Sheriff Buford

at the place he was informed that the

see his lawyer, Mr., Eugene S. Blease.
The sheriff waited' until 1 o'clock,
when he learned that Stevens, was at
