Bamberg Teachers' Meeting.
There was the same set of earnest
teachers present at the meeting of the
Association last Saturday that have been
present at the previous meetings. Those
teachers who think they have nothing to
gain from these meetings were as usual
The first subject on the program was,
"Ought teachers in country schools insist
on parallel reading?" Miss Pet Stephens
read an instructive paper on this,
setting forth the advantages to be derived
in having a teacher who knows good
reading and has a love for it, and can direct
the pupils in their choice of reading
wid instill into tliem a love lor gooa,
pure and wholesome books.
"Teaching of history and how to make
it interesting," was discussed by Mr. F.
E. Dibble in an essay that was greatly appreciated
by the members. He showed
that he recognized the true value of history
and how to make the past glow with
life to the student.
Senator Maytield came up while the
Association was in session, and when
called on responded in a talk of a quarter
jf an hour. The teachers will always
gladly hear him, for he is an earnest
w orker for good schools and an inspiration
to every teacher who listens to him.
Would that there were more like him.
The Association adjourned to meet the
5rst Saturday in October.
A Pleasant Day.
Last Saturday we had the pleasure of

Methodist church. The congrega;ion
was then dismissed for dinner, which
>vas enjoyed in picnic fashion on the
grounds, tables being already erected for
;he purpose.
After dinner Rev. G. H. Waddell told
rf the great work and needs of the Epivorth

Recommend Larger Oil Mill.
The committee appointed by the board
of directors of the projected oil mill at
this place, consisting of Messrs. C. W.
Garris, J. L. Eddleman and W. M. Brabham,
who visited mills in nearby places
to get some idea of how to go about getting
the enterprise in active operation,
made their report at a meeting of the
stockholders held last Thursday morning.
It was decided after listening to their report
that it would be advisable to build a
larger mill than the one first projected
and the capital stock was raised from
fifteen to twenty thousand dollars, in
order to admit of the building of a 30-ton
mill, pearly the entire amount was subscribed
for on the spot, and the corporators
will apply to the Secretary of State
for a new commission.
It was decided to increase the number
of directors from five to seven, and the
following now constitute the board:
Havelock Eave3, John H. Cope, Jno. F.
Folk, W. M. Brabham, C. W. Garris, J.
L. Eddleman and G. Frank Bambei%.

A Sad Death.
Miss Annie Ehrhardt, a daughter of
Ir. and Mrs. Henry Ehrhardt, died last
londay afternoon at the home of her
tarents in the town of Ehrhardt. She
ras eighteen years old, and had been sick
fith pnemonia for some time. The bural
took place at Mt. Pleasant church on
Tuesday afternoon at 4 o'clock, the serices
being conducted by Rev. J. H. Wilon.
Mr. Ehrhardt's whole family has been
ick for two months or more, being afected
with grippe, but this is the only
I consider it not only a pleasure but a
luty I owe to my neighbors to tell about
he wonderful cure effected in my case by
lie timely use of Ubamherlains loiic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. I was
aken with flux and procured a bottle of
his remedy. A few doses of it effected a
jermanent cure. I take pleasure in recomnending
it to others suffering from that
Ireadful disease.?.T. W. Lynch, Dorr, W.

On to the Phillippiuea.
We have been permitted to see a letter
rom Mr. W. E. Free, a son of Clerk of
2ourt C. B. Free, who is now in the Philippines.
The letter gives a description
>f the voyage as far as Gibraltar. He
tailed on the steamer Montauk, leaving
tfew York on March 31st. His descripion
of the trip is very interesting, and
ve wish we had space for all the letter,
tfr. Free concludes his letter with the
irrival at Gibraltar, and here we use his
)wn words:
"April 12th. Everything and everybody
in a breath of excitement, for we
lave entered the Strait of Gibraltaf. I
laveu't got or can't find words to tell of
;he scenery here?on one side the beautiful
coast of Spain and the other the rocky
ioast of Africa. Such treats as we are
in joying! I can hardly believe my own
jyes. It is now about dark, and we are
anchored at Gibraltar. To any one who
lias never seen the like, I just wish they
iould see this place at night when everything
is lit up. Our vessel is completely
surrounded by English and Spanish
schooners. Looks like they are just as
?lad to see us as if we were natives of
their own land."

The Destructive Fishtrap.
We have heard quite recently that
many of the merchants and citizens ol
Branchville have banded themselves together
and pledged themselves todiscour
age the use of wire fishtraps in the Edistc
rivers, and to prevent their use as far at
possible by neighbors and friends. IJ
some such step is not taken, the profes
sional fishermen will, in a few years, have
the fish exterminated. The sport of fish
iug with hook .and line is fast passim
away: and the wire trap has had more tc
do with this condition than any othei
But what is .to be done? That is the
question. The people of Branchville
have adopted a very good plan, and i)
other towns and communities would join
them in good faith, it would not be vers
long before the wire trap would disappeai
except in a few isolated cases.
Not only have the people pledged them
selves not to use the wire traps, but tin
merchants have decided not to sell tin
wire of which the traps are made. Witt
the citizens and merchants thus working
together, the result should be very grati
fying. Of course, wire may be purchasec
from other towns, but in many cases i
would not be. Besides, when other towns
and the merchants within them follow tin
example of those in Branchville it wil
, make it difficult to build the traps or t(
operate them. It will doubtless be im
possible to rid the river entirely of traps
but every one abandoned, destroyed, o:
made, impossible of operation, will con
, tribute to the preservation of the fisl:
supply and to the summer sport of thi
anglers.?Orangeburg Patriot.
