President Harms has been steadily
v at work in the effort to raise this
money, and it has taken hard work,
money, and it has taken hard work.
He has secured subscriptions in
South Carolina, Georgia and Florida;
ias far west as California; as far north
aft Wisconsin; as far east as Massa-J
chusetts; as far southwest as Texas,
and as far south as Florida. The
alumni showed their loyalty to the
rcollege from the beginning of the j
? movement to the end, both in contributions
and in co-operation and encouragement.
The people of Xewber- I
rv helped substantially. The students
> themselves were liberal in their gifts
to the endowment.
The first contribution was a twentydollar
gold piece around which there is
woven a human interest story of
Christian faith, evidenced by its fruits,
which makes This coin dear to President
Harms and to the college. It
was given by a widow. Some twenty
years ago her husband had given it to
? iier, and she had kept it for the
memories of the dear departed which
clustered round about ii. She told j
President Harms she could not spend
it for her own use; she told him that
:she was not able to contribute in any
other way to the endowment, and that
she would like to give this coin. President
Harms has kept it with him
throughout his trying labors in raising
the fifty thousand dollars, and the
z^Safowledge of the spirit in which it
was given has been a constant source
of encouragement to him.
President Harms, who has raised
this money, has been doing a fine
work for the college since he succeed
ed Dr. James A. B. Scherer as president.
He is a native of Savannah, and
-a graduate of the college in the class
of 1893. He came to the college from
"Harrisburg, Pa., where he was serving
-as pastor. Of fine executive ability,
his energy has been consecrated to
the great work in which he is engaged,
| and the college has been constantly
pushing forward into a broader field
of activity and usefulness.
President Harms, of course, is deeply
gratified that he has been able to
oarry the movement to a success. But
he says the endowment is not yet sufficient
to place the college on that
certain footing which it should have in
L order to take its place in the perma
? nent roll of "'the leading educational
^ institutions of the country. He is
looking forward to further work and
cfer of $25,000
a great deal of it. He wants to put
Newberry college on a financial foundation
upon which there can be no
onviotv in the matter of Income and
of current expenses. "The friends of
the college," he said, "should not be
content until the endowment is at
least three hundred thousand dollars."

Taken ill with typhoid fever several
weeks ago, Mr. Wright had been lingering
on the border for many days,
and though his condition from time
to time gave some hopes to members
of his family, the attending physicians
maintained throughout the latter part
of his illness that he could no recover.
As death approached all members of
his family gathered at the bedside,
including his aged father, Bishop Milton
Wright, Miss Catherine Wright, Orville

aeroplane; Reuchlin Wright and Lorin
Seized With Chills,
The most alarming symptoms in Mr.
"Vright's sickness developed yesterday
shortly before noon when his fever
suddenly mounted from 104 up to 106
and then quickly subsided to its former
stage. At this juncture of the
crisis the patient was seized with
chills and the attending physicians
v;ere baffled by the turn of events.
The condition of the aviator remained
unchanged throughout the
rest of the day and there was no material
change until last midnight.
Then Mr. Wright began to show some
improvement and the watchers at his
bedside were encouraged. Shortly af-|
terwards, however, the patient took
a sudden turn for the worse and his
principal physician, Dr. D. B. Conklin.

Mr. Wright was taken ill May 4
while on a business trip to the East.
On that day he returned to Dayton'
from Boston and consulted Dr. Conk-1
in, the family physician. He. went to
bed immediately, but it was several
days before his case was definitely
diagnosed as typhoid. Throughout
the early part of his illness, Mr.
Wright believed he was suffering as
a result of some fish he had eaten at
a Boston hotel.

Followed the Light.
A narrative of Wilbur Wright's career
is the story of a man who followed
the light of his dreams and contrived
a machine for aerial navigation
that stands out spectacularly among
the wonders of a century of inventions.

Orville, dreamed of building a craft
that would dart through the air with
the speed of a hawk, that would defy
the storm, that would transform the art
of warfare and revolutionize methods
of transportation. In the nine years
that followed their first successful test
at Kittyhawk, X. C., they have seen
their aeroplane driven more than two
miles up into space, have heard the
purr of their machines as they whirled
011 their way across the continent and I
have watched great crowds stand
aghast in anticipation as a graceful
biplane soared threateningly over the
fighting mast of a giant warship which
might have been sent careening to destruction
by a bomb from the tiny ma
chine hovering over it.
It was while Wilbur was in high
school at Richmond, Ind., and Dayton,
0., that the brothers began making
definite plans for an aeroplane. A few
years later they embarked in the
bicycle selling and repairing business
at Dayton. In their shops they found
plenty of opportunity for experiments
and when a gasoline engine was perfected
in the automobile's rapid
strides, they saw a dawning light.

In 1902 the brothers had built their
first air machine and in 1903, they
WARRANT FOR TOM WATSON.
Charges Sending Obscene Matter
Through U. S, Malls in His
Macon, Ga., June 1.?unuea siaies
Commissioner W. E. Martin this afternoon
issued a warrant for the arrest
of Thomas E. Watson, of Thomson,
editor of Watson's Magazine,
charging him with sending obscene
matter through the mails, in the May
issue of his magazine.
District Attorney Alexander Ackermnn
annroved the warrant, which was
sworn out on the accusation of Postoffice
Inspector A. J. Knight, who
has headquarters at Savannah.
The warrant was promptly turned,
over to United States Marshal George
F. White, and he in turn sent it to
Deputy Marshal Murray, of Augusta,
with instructions to serve at once.
The arrest of Mr. Watson will probably
be made Monday morning, and
he will be taken in custody of the
marshal to Augusta, where he will foe
arraigned for a preliminary hearing
before United States Commissioner
Godwin. Mr. Watson, according to
Marshal White, will be shown no favors
or consideration and he will be
treated just as any other person ar,
rested foy the United States, It will
be impossible for Mr. Watson to give
bond at Thomson and It will be necessary
for him to go to August, ^
The warrant says that Mr. Watson
"knowingly and feloniously deposited
and caused to be deposited for mailing
and delivery to divers persons whose
names and addresses are unknown by
and through the mails of the United
States divers copy of a certain obscene,
lewd, lascivious and filthy pulj-;
lication of an indecent character,
which* said publication was then and
tbArn Anntained nnd in a
zine entitled Watson's Magazine, in
May, 1912, which publication contain
ed on certain pages an article entit'ed
'The Roman Catholic Hierarchy; the
Deadliest Menace to Our Liberties and
Our Civilization,' which said publication
is so obscene, lewd, lascivious and
filthy as to be offensive to the court
and improper to be set forth herein."
