UXAUEl) SCHOOL MASS MEETING. The Election is Ordered by a Unanimous Vote. The mass meeting in the town hall last Monday afternoon, held under the call of prominent citizens for the purpose of deciding whether an election should be ordered on the question of issuing bonds j to the amount of *10,000 for the purpose ] of pureliasinga lot and t reetingand equip- j ing a suitable school building for Bam-f berg district, No. 14, was well attended by many of our most prominent citizens and large taxpayers. The meeting was called to order by Mayor E. It. Hays, and Capt. J. B. Hunter, our sheriff, was elected chairman, with Col. Jno. F. Folk, county treasurer, as secretary. By request Jno. K. Bellinger, Esq., in I well chosen words, stated the object of the meeting, and made timely remarks in favor of the proposition. Mr. Bellinger is a member of the board of trustees and well acquainted with the condition and needs of the school. Principal C. R. Calhoun was called on, and told of the many disadvantages the teachers labored under, emphasizing in a | forceful manner the necessity for an adequate building as well as a different location. Mr. H.J. Brabham ex pressor! himself in strong terms in regard to the present building. lie said it was a disgrace to us mat our cimuren snoum ueinugm m >utu a poor building, and was heartily in favor Of it for the good of the community. Mayor E. R. Hays was called for, and said if the conditions stated by Mr. Brabham were correct he would vote for the new building. His remarks were short but pointed, and he and Mr. Brabham received applause. Col. Jno. F. Folk made a strong speech in favor of the new building, giviug figures showing the taxable property of the district to be nearly $500,000. With a small levy we eould erect a building and make provision for retiring the bonds and paying interest. A. W. Knight then offered a resolution, which after being amended, was passed without a dissenting vote. The resolution is as follows: "Be it resolved by the citizens of Bamberg School District, No. 14, in mass meeting assembled, that it is the sense of this meeting that an election be ordered on the question of whether or not bonds shall be issued to the amount of $10,000, at a rate of interest not to exceed six per cent, per annum, for the purpose of purchasing a lot and erecting and equipping a suitable public school building for said district, said election to beheld on Thursday, January 15th, 1003, J. D. Felder, G. A. Rice, and A. S. Easterlin to be managers." Jno. R. Bellinger, Esq., offered a resolution providing for the election of a committee of three to take charge of all matters connected with the election and lo prepare a bill for the legislature authorizing the issuing of bonds and to perform all other duties necessary to jarry into effect the will of the mass meeting. The resolution was adopted. A aumber of nominations were made for .members of the committee. A ballot was I * -*** ? i n ur I Pad,ana uno. it. .oeiiiiiger mm w. w. j Sarris were declared elected. H. 0. Folk and Juo. F. Folk tied. H. C." Folk withdrew and Jno. F. Folk was declared elected. The meeting then adjourned. It was harmonious throughout, and all present seemed to be in favor of a new and ade- = tjuate building. They will have the chance to show their sincerity at the election on the 15th. We are sure that there will be j some opposition, but those who favor the -v proposition should turn out and bury the fc opposition so deep that they cannot kick, t To oppose the new building is to oppose p the progress of the town. In the course n of his remarks Mr. H. J. Brabham said p that nothing else would benefit the town e so much, and he is a successful, clear- p Peaded business man, whose opinion ^ should and will have much weight. Let (] js all vote right, and put our school on a a ine basis. c c THE OFFICIAL REPORT.* 1, The following report of the meeting has r tieeu furnished us since our report above v was in type: Pursuant to a call issued, a mass meet- a ng of the citizens of Bamberg School i District, No. 14, was held in the town hall c in December 29.

Calhoun, in his usual ? impressive manner, called to the attention of the citizens the pressing need of a ' 3etter building and larger grounds to ac- ' jomodate the increased number of chil- " 3ren now in attendance at the school. ^ Treasurer Jno. F. Folk believed that it svas geuerally conceded that Bamberg . svas sadly in need of better buildings and larger grounds and would not consume r ;he time of the meeting by discussing ;hat, but gave a statement of the financial ^ condition of the district, showing that it was amply able to erect the necessary n building if it wished to do so. , The following resolution was offered , by Mr. A. W. "Knight and unanimously idopted: "Be it resolved by the citizens , >f Bamberg School District, No. 14, in mass meeting assembled, that it is the sense of this meeting that an election be beld on the question of whether or not c bonds shall be issued by the district to " the amount of $10,000, at a rate of inter- ^ est not exceeding G per cent, per annum, * for the purpose of purchasing a lot and * erecting and furnishing a public school r building for said school district, and that r the said election be held on the 15th day a of January, 1903, and that J.

THEY H Twc M We All Christmas with the Young People. After nearly two weeks of fun and enoynient, the time has come for resuming rork once more. These holidays have teen scarcely more than a pleasant dream o the college student. Unlike the dream, lowever, which is so soon forgotten, the uemory of the pleasant times will live ong in the hearts and minds of each and very student. Even though it may be tard to get back to work, we feel with Vhittier that, "There is life alone in duty lone, And rest alone in striving." Five ,nd a half months of solid work to be om pen sated for by three and a half more ?f fun is not. such a poor prospect. But et us look not so far into the future, athcr let us see about the pleasant times re have had during the past week or two. Several very pleasant affairs have charcterized the past few weeks. While few n number, the entertainments have been ! ?f a most enjoyable nature. Those who j rere fortunate enough to be present feel1 iroud that Bamberg affords such pleasant nd graceful young hostesses. AN INFORMAL RECEPTION. Last Thursday night Miss Kate Pooser ave her young friends what was first inended to be a sociable, but which was fterwards turned into what we shall erm "an informal reception. A large umber of couples were present and all bared alike the good time which was icted out so splendidly. The great ariety of games played was a pleasing eature. There were games in which very one $ould take part. Perhaps Ping *ong proved to be the most popular game >f the evening. Fruit was served in bundance. The beautiful display of fireforks was certainly an enjoyable part. ?he whole evening passed oil so quick y and pleasantly that when the midnight lour was tolled "out upon the still night ir, it was hard to realize that it was so ate. MISS HAYS ENTERTAINS. "She certainly was at home in a most harming manner." This remark was aade by one in speaking of the "Parlor Yte" given by Miss Addys Hays on last Yiday evening. From eight-thirty until welve o'clock the ball of enjoyment was oiling in one continual round of happiless, erasing, as it rolled, all thoughts of waiting tasks from the minds of those irescut. "Progressive up jinks" was the hief amusement of the evening. The irizes which were awarded to those who >layed the best game were a silver hat irush, won by Mr. T. 0. Ott, of Columbia, ind a silver nail file, won by Mrs. II. F. Samberg. The piano was made to talk u tones of eloquence by the touch of lelicate fingers. Music was in the air. furious courses of a splendid supper were leither lacking in quality or quantity, roasts were proposed and responded to n a fine manner. The following were present: Miss 4.11 ie Jennings, Mr. J. D. O'Hearn; Miss Lillian Murphy, Mr. D. Dowling; Miss Maude Murphy. Mr. A. M. Brabham; Miss L'lio Cope, Mr. J. E.

Still another pleasing event took place among the young people of Bamberg on last Monday evening. Miss Llewlie Bamberg, a student of Columbia Female College, entertained a number of young friends at her home on Railroad Avenue. At nine o'clock the couples began to arrive and were received with great grace by Miss Bamberg. It was not long before all began to make merry. Until a late hour there never appeared a lull in the merriment. When the game of "Progressive up jinks" was discontinued and prizes had been awarded to Miss Lillian Unv.mv- of Charleston, and to Mr. Julian Qunttlebaum, of Bamberg, an excellent course of refreshments were served with great taste. That the whole evening was one of great enjoyment is certainly true. Those present were: Miss Clio Cope, Mr. A. M. IJrabham; Miss Myra IIcolon, Mr. Harry Murphy; Miss Allie Jennings, Mr. J. 1).

With his usual good nature and that hearty laugh of iiis, he made the whole crowd feel that they were indeed at home. Certainly no more pleasing event has taken place in Bainberg this season. Aided by several of the ladies of the hotel. Rev. Mr. Sandifer did himself great as an entertainer. Never allowing any one to seem out of harmony with the pleasant surroundings, or to feci that all of this good time was not for each one, he kept things moving. At a quarter to ten was begun a unique game, which consisted in giving suggestions offered by a watch. The prizes were won by Miss Marguerite Eaves, Mr. D. G. Copeland, Miss Marie Stokes and Mr. Julian Quattle baum. Refreshments were served and or course enjoyed. The rest of the evening was passed off very pleasantly playing "Up jinks."

Riley died at her home in Allendale last Wednesday, after an illness of several months. She had been seriously ill for some time, and her death was not unexpected. The burial took place last Thursday at the family cemetery near Kline. Mrs. Rilcv was about thirty-two years old, and leaves a husband and three children. She was a sister of Mr. Jones Williams, of this place. Mr. and Mrs. Riley had made their home in Bamberg for several years until last January, when they moved to Allendale. They both have many warm friends here, who will grieve at the news of her death. Note of Thanks. Editor Tiie Bamberg Herald:? Please allow me space in the columns of your paper to thank the kind ladies of the Methodist church of Bamberg for their beautiful and valuable Christmas gift to me, and to assure them of my high appreciation of the same. I wish for each of them God's richest blessing and a happy New Year. Mrs. M. VV. Hook. Bamberg, S. C., December 31, 1902. Woman Burned to Death. Last Monday a negro woman was burned to death on the farm of Hon. II. C. Folk, a few miles from town. She was the wife of Abe Simmons. It appears that the house in which they were living caught tire, and she had picked up a trunk and was carrying it out. She had reached a window and was attempting to hand the trunk to her husband, but, being very stout, she was overcome by heat and exhaustion, and fell Lack into the lire and could not be rescued. Her body was almost entirely burned up with the house. Badly Burned. Miss Gertrude Price, the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. B. Price, who lives about one mile from town, was very badly burned last Friday. While standing near the lire her clothing took lire; naturally frightened she rushed about in terror. Her mother and father, in their efforts to save their daughter from agony, were themselves very badly burned. Miss Price is a young lady about seventeen or eighteen vears old. and a great help to her I mother. She lias many friends, who wish her a speedy recovery. At last ae: counts she was still in a very precarious 1 condition. Since the above was in type we learn i that Miss Gertrude, as well as Mr. and Mrs. , Price, are getting along very nicely, and j , the burns (if ail, while severe, are healing.; , Miss Gertrude was badly burned on the! i body, while the wounds of her father and j ! mother were on tise hands, in attempting , to put out the tire. She was sweeping| i j the room near the fireplace when the skirt of her dress caught on tire. Heads Should Never Ache. Never endure this trouble. Use at once the remedy that stopped it for Mrs. N. A.
