Superintendent Homer Schumpert
Always on the Alert With Keen
Eye and Ready Hand
Mr. Homer Schumpert, the active
and untiring superintendent of the
Newberry water and light system,
notwithstanding the f-ict that the
city water was recently analyzed ?nd
found to be all rig'it was considerably
worried because of the preface
of some typhoid fever in the community.
Determining to find oiu fhe
' cause he sent another sample of the
water to Charleston to have it analyzed
by Dr. F. L. Parker at the office
of the state board of health, so anxoius
was he to see if the water here
"had anything to do with tne csaes at
hand. The four ca<ses were as follows:
Mr. Floyd Bradley, young
Berry, Mr. Otto Foster's child, and
young Gilliam. Under date of the
15th instant Dr. Parker writes Mr.
Schumpert a letter, a most imnortant
part being the following .>entencc:
"Analyses indicate water to be of
good quality, and free from contamination."
It is a significant ?act that
there is no sewerage in the lipases
whence these cases originated; which

of Newberry is free of contamination

Unknown Men Attack Mrs. Alcthia
Norman?Threatening Letter.
The State, ISth.
t Attracted to the rear of her home,
2121 College street, by a rap on the
back door, Mrs. Alethia Norman was
i caught by two unknown men, gagged,
bound and beaten. The attack was
made about 5 o clock yesterday aftern

and the alarm was given about an
hour later when she was found by
her little daughter, semi-conscious.
Last night it was said at the Norman
residnecc that, while she was severely
beaten, the injuries arc not
thought to be serious.
The police arc working 011 the
cv.ic, but at an ealry hour this mornNig
no arrests had been made. The
principal clue is four anonymous
letters, three of which were received
by Mrs. Norman during last week
and one of which was left by the two
men yesterday afternoon. These letters
threatened Mrs. Norman'; life

Rap on Rear Doer.
Mrs. Norman said last night that
she was in a front room when she
heard a knock. She went to the
rear to answer the rap and two men*
jumped from behind a door, having
already entered the house and concealed
themselves. One of the men
threw a towel over her face and the

towel securely about her head. The
men twisted her dress about her body
and bepran beating her, Mrs. Norman
said. Severe bruises were made on
her limbs and about the body.
! After beating Mrs. Norman the
' men threw a handful of red pepper
. in her mouth, Mrs. Norman said, and
left with the warning that "we are
coming back and kill ytfu." this sentence
being punctuated by one of the
men with a vile epithet. She has no
idea who the men are, being unable
to say positively whether they were
black or white. However, Mrs. Norman
.-laid she believed they were
white men.
Mrs. Norman was unable to give
the alarm for nearly an hour, and
when her little daughter returned
home she told her to call Mr. Nor man
who works for the National Biscuit
company. Mr. Ncrman was the
first to arrive after his little daugh"

as to who the men were.
Four Le!Iters Received.
Mr. Norman said one of the letters
was received last Tuesday and
another Friday while the third was

for the morning paper. The fourth
letter was left by t*Iie two men yesterday

campaign shows no signs of iut'ting
up Since it was started June 10th,
over 2,500 doses of the prophyiectic
s?rum have been given to the people
o." the county.
The increasing prevalence of typhoid
a'.l over the county and that
the fact that some of these cases
have died have made the people in
some communities attend the clinics
held by the county health department
i and receive the inoculation against
1 this dreaded disease. It has occurred
several times that persons have come
to the clinic too late. They were already
oirioken with the disease. One
of these cases, a negro girl at Bush
River, later died and another yrang
sor of Mr. Satterwhite is convalescing
from the fever. 7f these persons
