FIVE YEARS IS SENTENCE.
last Step in Case Against Milton A.
Carlisle-Notice of Appeal is
Greenville News, 27th.
Five years in the Atlanta peniten
tiary, is the sentence imposed yester
,day morning by Judge Brawley upon
Milton A. Carlisle, former president
,of the Newberry National bank, who
was convicted last week of mis
application of the funds of that in
stitution on five counts of an indict
ment containing 162, in the United
States district court.
Will Prosecute Other Directors.
It is stated on good authority that
indictments will be made out in the
near future against three of the di
rectors of the bank who were asso
clated with. Mr. Carlisle in these al
leged corrupt transactions. There
was also some intimation of thi: dur
ing the trial of Mr. Carlisle duriz,
arguments upon objections between
Mr. Cochran and Mr. Dominick.
During the trial, the defense
brought out considerable evidence
during the cross-examination, tending
to show that several nf the other di
rectors of the bank were heavily in
debted to the bank in the same man
ner as Mr. Carlisle, when they were
possibly not able to pay back rhis
money and also tendiig to show ftat
the directors were somewhat negli
gent in the supervision of the affairs
of the bank. Just when these indict
-ments will be made public, is not
'known, but it is not thought likely
that they will come up during this
term of the court.
The trial ot Mr. Carlisle has arous
ed considerable interest throughout
this section of the State, both on ac
-count of the fact that Mr. Carlisle
was well known, and also since this
is the first case of the kind brought
against a national bank president in
this State. The indictment was re
turned as a true bill during October,
1909, by the grand jury of the United
'States district court in this city,
shortly following the visit to New
berry in August of Mr. Sherrill

The Clemison~ Booklet (on Nepotism.
Mr. Editor: The booklet of Prof.
Riggs. acting president, in regard to
the nepotism existing at Clemson col
lege, leads one to infer that this nepo
tism is the result of the action of the'
last two presidents of the college. But
the booklet does not show one of eith
eri president's relations enjoying their
nepotic professorships. And the more
reasonab!e inferenc& and the one gen
erally accepted is that the recommen
dations of these presidents were due
to the wisihes. of members of the
board of trustees of the college.
The position as president of Clem
son college has not been a secure one.
And this booklet might have shown
that these last two presidents had to~
resign. while the neptoic professors
continue to hold their places.

WEDDING AT MT. PLEASANT.
Miss Erline Weinheimer Becomes the
Bride of Rev. I. E. Long, of
A very pretty wedding was solem
nized in St. Paul's Lutheran church 1
at Mount Pleasant Wednesday even- 1
ing, October 19, when Miss Erline
Weinheimer became the bride of Rev.
I. E. Long, of Newberry, S. C. Dr. A. 1
G. Voigt officiated. The church
was beautifully decorated with gold
en rod, ferns and ivy. At the ap
pointed hour "0. Promise Me," was
very sweetly sung by Mrs. M. K. Pal
mer. Immediately after, the bridal
party entered to the strains of Loh
engrin's "Wedding March," which was
rendered with much skill by Miss May
Lunden. First came the two ushers,
Mr. Charles A. Weinheimer, brother
of the bride, with Mr. M. L. Koester.
They were followed by Miss Wilhel
mena Moessner. with Mr. W. E. Pugh,
Miss Annie Anderson with Rev. H. J.
Black. Then came the maid of hon
or, Miss Josie Weinheimer, sister of
the bride, followed by Miss Isabelle
Koester, the flower girl. The bride
entered with her father, Mr. Charles
A. Weinheimer, and was met at the
altar by the groom and his best man,
Mr. J. S. Wessinger. The ring service
was used, and immediately after the
ceremony the bridal party left to the
strains of Mendelssohn's march. The
bridesmaids were attired in hand
some white lingerie dresses, daintily
trimmed with lace, and they carried!(
bunches of golden-rod, tied with yel
[ow ribbon gauze. The maid of honor
wore a beautiful yellow brocaded silk, t
very daintily trinmed with gold
bands, with gloves and slippers to
match. She also carried goldenrod.
The little flower girl never looked
sweeter than she did in her white em
broidery dress with yellow ribbons.
She carried a lovely brasket of golden
rod, which she gracefully strewed in I
the bride's path. The bride was hand- I
somely gowned in a net robe over t
white satin en train. Her veil, which I
was caught up with lilies of the val- t
ley fell to the bottom of her skirt. She i
carried an armful of brides r6ses I
with long white tulle streamers. Im- I
mediately after the ceremony the t
many friends of the bride and groom i
gathered at the home of the bride, .
where a reception was held. The home c
was beautifully decorated with gold
enrod and pot plants. Japanese lan
arns were strung the length of the
piazza. The numerous presents show
ed the popularity of the bride and
~room. Among the many presents was
i lovely silver service. The groom is
. recent graduate of the Theological
seminary of Mount Pleasant and has
ade many friends in Charleston as
vell as in Mount Pleasant, during his
tay here. The bride is a very sweetI
roung lady, and is loved by her many
'riends. Mr. and Mrs. Long will be

ABOUT HOG CULTURE.
[housands of Dollars Are Sent West
for Meat When Farmers Could
Furnish Own Supplies.
Washington, Oct. 17.-The people of
he South should keep at home the
hou-sands of dollars which they are
Lnnually sending into the West for
neat and the farmers of the South
an bring about this much desired
.ondition and can at the same time
ealize handsome profits for themsel
es if they will engage in the raising
)f hogs more extensively, declaxes
?rof. Dan T. Gray, of the Alabama
'olytechnic institute, who has charge
>f the department of animal indusry
)f the United States department of
tgriculture, in "Farmers' . Bulletin
11" entitled "Feeding Hogs in the
3outh," just issued by the department.
"Hogs can be raised as cheaply in
he South as any where else and in
nany cases more cheaply but hogs
,an not be raised profitably on corn
Llone," says Prof. Gray, and in the
)ulletin he gives in full detail the
)roper methods of feeding hogs in or
!er to realize a profit. Figures are
,Iven showing the results obtained
rom the use of various feeds in ex
>eriments conducted at different
)Oints in the South. The bulletin
hould prove of much value to any
)outhern farmer and its circulation
vill doubtless result in a greatly in
reased activity in hog raising. Presi
lent W. W. Finley, -of the Southern
tailway company, who is greatly in
erested in having the South raise
ts food supplies at -home will be glad
o have a copy of this bulletin sent
o any farmer in the South who will
.ddress a request to him at 1300
)ennsylvania avenue, Washington, D.
.., or request may be made directly
0 the department of agriculture.
Before going into the details of the
>roper feeding of hogs Prof. Gray
nakes some very interesting observa
ions. showing how the raisng of more
iogs in the South will prove a benefit
o the whole section. He gives fig
tres showing the consumption P',
tome-raised and western animeh In
31(minghn, Ala, in 1907, proving
ht in tihat year alone more than a
nillion dollars went out of Birming
ram into distant States. all of which
hould have gone into the pockets of
south'ern farmers. Other reasons why
toiithrern farmiers should raise more
ogs are -stated as follows:
"Pork can be made as cheaply, and
erhaps more cheaply, in the South
han in any other section of the coun
ry. And there are many reasons why
ur Southern farmers should intro
uce this line of animal production
ato the farming system. One of the
easons is mentioned above--the
aoney spent for meat by Southern
'eople would be kept at 'home. An
ther is the influence it would prob
ibly have on the price of cotton. It
iill never be possible for the South
a control the price or cotton until the
out.hern farmer places himself In
osition that he can .hold the crop af
er it is produced.
So long as all the farmers are re
uired to sell the entire crop of cot
an each fall, so long will its price
e an un.reliable and unstaple one.
'he only way by which a farmer can
lace 'himself in a position where he
'ill not have to sell all his cotton
ach fall is to produce something in
ddition to cotton; and unquestion
bly one of the best supplements to
ble cotton crop would be .raising 'of
ogs. The hog business can be so
lanaged that the owner can have
roney coming in from it at least
wice a year, which would enable him
hold his cotton as long as he
"Furthermore, the hog is especially
dapted to the farmer with small cap
:al, as but a small amount of money
required with which to begin the
usiness, and returns begin to come
i a few months after it is started.
'he sow is a rapid produccer. Money
