It was the writer's pleasure to attend
a musical at Summerton last Friday
evening, and he was not at all amazed
at the excellence of the program. nor
the elegance of the large and cultured
audience. Professor Saul's reputation
is known throughout the country and
had his concert fallen short of high
order, it would have been a sad disap
pointment. As a musician this gentle
man- ranks very high. He dissects
music like a physician 'dissects the hu
man body, as a batonist dissects the
plants that God has adorned the earth
with to lend joy to mankind. His magic
touch of the pianoforte breathes life
into an inaminate object and from it
brings forth those melodies and har
monies which stirs the emotions of the
soul, and drives from the human breast
the morbid thoughts of "strategem and
spoils," but rather places in the hand
the "Kindly Light" and leads one up
to the realm above.
The credit for this delightful coucert
is not due to Professor Saul alone. He
was ably assisted by Mrs. Lieding,
Misses Johnson and Aichel. all of Char
leston, and all of them artists. although
not professional. "Miss Johnson has a
captivating contralto which indicates
careful training, and her rendition of
"Ah! 'Tis a Dream" was superb.
The applause which greeted MIiss
Aichel's violin accomplishments was
decidedly well merited: all of the selec
tions rendered by this lady were so
pleasing that she won the affections
of the audience.
Mrs. Leiding charmed the audience
with her sweet, well trained, and highly
cultured soprano voice. Her several
selections were indeed gems of melody.
The entire numbers were well per
formed, and Professor Saul also ren
dered several selections of musical
classics not on the program. selected
for him by music students in the audi
ence. The program was as follows:
1. Piano solo, "Pilgrim's Chorus."
from Tannhauser. Wagner, Prof Saul.
2. Contralto sole, "Aria." from Ri

To The Public:
Twenty-five years ago, last December. the undersigne'd as a boy of 11 years became a resi
dent of Summerton. A quarter of a century is quite a while to live in one place, and in that time
man changes occur. Twenty-five years ago there were 13 white families living in -Summerton.
Durin the past three years 18 nice dwellings for whites have been built, and today 11 others are
buildlganld under contract. -
Twenty-five years ago there were two places or business, placi like sentinels one at each
end ofithe town. Today there are about 30 places of business, some occupying handsome store
rooms.rFour years ago there was not a brick building in the town. today there are 14 brick
stores a'nd three building, and a brick bank.
Twenty-five years ago there was mail twice a week, brought by star route, and at times by
a one-legged negro, an old gray horse and sulky. Then, one had to go to Sumter or Gourdins if he
wanted to travel by rail. Old rail-worm fences were all over the toivn. and one of the chief
sports was to drag an old fox hide over town, and put the dogs On theI trail, get on the side of the
road and see which dog would cross first.
Twenty-five years ago a room 210 by 40 constituted tne'school house, occupied by the school
during the school months and by a fiock of goats in the summer. In thir school room, all that
was left of the famous academy presided over by Rev. Mr. Thomas, a most estimable lady taught
a small school. It was four years later that the agitation for better school facilities culminated
in the trustees or patrons securing the services of Mr. J. C. Lanham. and from this time interest
in a good school has risen and fallen in a degree. A bout 12 or 15 years ago an effort was md
looking to the establishment of a graded school. For some reason it was dropped. In 189i
was revived and Summerton School District. No. 12 was formed and a graded school opned
Realizing the necessity of still better facilities, the taxpayers of the district received perm5~f
to vote on bonds for the erection of a handsome and permanent home for the school, wth mor
room and better facilities. T2he trustees have now been given authority to bond the district: for
Wealldeel quite proud of the advance along all lines or our town. and while' the improve
ients noted above may seem small to strangers, yet to us and to all old Summertonians wo
have wandered from home. they look truly magifcient. A.. PLUMER BURGESS.
Already people are beginning to buy lots and are getting ready to build in order to be i
coach of the school. we are prepared to furnish a great many with very desirable places to
build, and will be glad to answer inquiries or show the lots in person to mnquirers. Prices are yet
reasonable. and while out of sight, as compared with twenty-five years ago. yet may go higher
