Speaking of Bamberg.
We heard a well-to-do farmer of Orange- ;

improvements which have been made on
the new bridge road,that bethought it "the (
beat road in this part of the country. It
is certainly a contrast to the road on the
Orangeburg 9ide; we people over there
have got to wake our side up and have
? - " the road improved." This is the road
that the convicts have been working. If
we can have as good roads all over the
county as. we are now having built, Bamberg
and Bamberg county may feel proud.
It is good roads together with a good
cotton market which-makes cotton come
here so abundantly.
"We recognize that Bamberg is the
livest town in this section, and that more
business is done there than in any other
of the neighboring towns. The people
stick together and go into an enterprise
with one heart and purpose. This accounts
for the town being what it is toX
' day." Thus spoke one of the most
prominent citizens of a not far distant
"If we except the cities which import
cotton, Bamberg has marketed more cottnn
than ?nv other market in South Caro
iv lina or Georgia," said a drummer who
has recently been through these two
f States.
A mowing machine on Railroad Avenue
and some other streets would not be
bad. Weeds do not look very good od
our main residence street, especially
since clay has just been put there to iml
prove it. ?

Mr. C. A. Berry, of Charleston, and J.

The Caivin vagrant law of Georgia is
just the thing we need in South Carolina,
as there are enough loafing negroes hanging
around the towns to keep all crops
from suffering for work. Another law
that is very much needed in this State,
and which we will see the necessity of
before always, is that any person who
owns a rifle must give bond to keep the
same, except officers of the law, military
or other companies commissioned by the
Governor, or show to the satisfaction of
the board of registration that he is entitled
to keep one, just as he would have to
show that he was entitled to receive a
registration certificate.

The cotton market in Bamberg continues
steady. The price being paid here today

cents the pound. Receipts for the week
about 800 bales.
8. A. Read, Cisco, Texas, writes, March
11,1901: "My wrist was sprained so badly
by a fall that it was useless, and after
using several remedies that failed to give
relief, used Ballard's Snow Liniment, and
was cured. I earnestly recommend it to i
any one suffering from sprains." 25c, i

The New Annapolis.
Turning down to the left from "Lover's 1
^ane," where we have l>ee? walking, we 1
troll oil to the Naval Observatory and
library. 'i
s a neat little building, and is fitted up
n a most excellent manner. The telecopes,
spectroscopes, and other astrononical
instruments are of the latest design,
md are used exclusively by the Midship- 1
nen of the two upper classes and naval 1
:xperts. Here the time of day is carefuly
reckoued, and all watches and clocks ]
n the naval service are corrected by it.
Leaving the observatory we walk on
owards the library. Just before reading
it, however, our attention is drawn to t
beautiful little monument on our left.
3u a large pedestal and around a tall >
narble shaft are four cannon of granite supporting
the upper part of the monuneut.
This makes a beautiful and im
posing tablet to the memory of the he
roes, to whom it was erected. Two mar- .
Pie tablets tell the motive which prompted
the fallen heroes' friends to erect it.
In Jauuary, 1846, Midshipmen Clemson
Mid Hyuson were washed overboard the
LJ. S. Brig Somers off the coast of Mexico
not far from the city of Vera Cruz and
drowned. Later on, in 1847, Midshipman
Pillsbury was killed while in action with
the Naval Batter}', which assisted at the
storming of Vera Cruz by Gen. Scott.
Midshipman Shubrick was drowned soon
after while attempting to rescue a comrade,
who had fallen overboard his ship,
the Somers.
which we reach next, is a brick building,
set back in a grove of large trees. With
its tall columns, it presents the appearance
of an old Southern home. The library
contains about 15,000 volumes, besides
the many series of government reports
etc. All the latest books of tictiou,
as well as the works of classic authors
and books of reference are to be found
here. The reading room is also in this
building, and all the best magazines and
periodicals are on the tables. Only persons
attached to the navy are allowed to
use the library, and the Midshipmen have
preference over all others.
Just beyond the library is a quaint old
relic of the past?erected on a. neat pedestal
is the mast head of the once famous
cruiser,- the U. S. B. Delaware of 1817.
The figure is a huge Indian's head and
shoulders. It is carved out of a block of
wood, and measures about ten ieet nigu
by four wide. Around the majestic head
is hung all of the Indian's weapons?his
knife, his powder horn, his tomahawk
etc. This quaint old custom of placing a
totem on the mast head of the battle-ship
has long since passed by, and the few that
we see nowadays do not fail to awaken
interest in us.
Below this are.the general offices of the
superintendent and his assistant; the Academy
store, where the Midshipman receives
all his supplies; and the Paymaster's
Behind all this and down a high grassy
terrace, we see through the branches of
the numerous fir and oak trees the athletic
field of the midshipmen. First there is
a basket ball field, and then ten fine tennis
courts. Tennis is played a great deal,
and to see so many midshipmen in their
blue and yellow striped jerseys playing at
a time is a fine sight. Around the tennis
courts is the race track?this is a fifth
mile track, and is well kept up. To one
side is set up poles for jumping, vaulting,
The base ball and foot ball fields are on
the other side of the "yard," and will be
spoken of later.
Quitting the hill, which overlooks all
this, we pass back to Blake Row once
more. Here we arrive at the
which is at one end of the Row. The
rik-. %a a litfl a Krt/ikr
19 a 1U11C unca uuuuiug
erected on a shady spot and has its walls
all overgrown with ivy. It i? entirely too
small to accommodate the midshipmen
now, however, and i9 being replaced by a
magnificent $400,000 granite structure.
Upon obtaining permission we pass inside.
The chapel is neatly fitted up in
Episcopalian style. On account of there
being so many denominations in the Academy,
the Episcopalian form of worship
is used. All Midshipmen, excepting those
who are Catholics, are compelled to attend
services here once each Sunday.
The pews are neatly * cushioned, the
walls handsomely painted, the floor carpeted
and the building lighted by electricity
and heated by steam. In the gallery
is a pipe organ with a special organist,
who is leader of the choir?composed
wholly of midshipmen. But what strikes
us most of all in the chapel is the three
stained glass windows, and the many tablets
which' adorn the walls. One large
handsome window?said to be the most
expensive one of its kind in America?is
to the memory of Lieut-commander Mason,
who died several years ago. The
other two were placed in the chapel by
the government, and are to the memory
of the men who perished in the ill-fated
A CnhAAnoi* BTiirnn* o?rl tKo mon wliA
XXiVbll/ kA/UWUVi uuivu, UUU vuv mvu
were drowned in the wreck of the U. S.
S. in the Samoan waters.
The tablets are of bronze and marble,
and are beautiful. They are for the most
part erected to the memory of men in the
naval service, who were killed or drowned
while performing some heroic deed.
One is erected to Commander Charles
McDongae, who was burned to death in
a hotel tire in New York city, while trying
to rescue a child from the flames; another
to a young lieutenant, who was
killed by pirates in Mexico; still another
to the otticers and sailors who were lost
on the Huron.
We have not space to tell the thrilling
narration to be drawn from the few words
carved upon these simple but impressive
monuments erected to perpetuate the
memory of fallen heroes.
The next points of interest to be visited
are the new armory, the new main
barracks (in process of building,) the new
seamanship building, with the boathouses,
officers' club room and gun shed.
These we will visit next, and see all
that visitors are allowed to see. One
must bear in mind, however, that a visitor
is not allowed the privilege of seeing
and knowing as much as a person attached
to the navy.

The ladies of the Olar Baptist church
gave an ice cream festival at the residence

Quite a large crowd of young folks
were present, and the occasion was an
unusual pleasure for all in attendance.
The exercises consisted first of a cake
walk, in which Miss Gussie Free and Fred
Free were awarded the cake. Next a
cake was voted for the most popular
young lady iu the audience, and Miss Ida
Bessiuger received the highest number of
votes. The net receipts were about

A Remarkable Record. j
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy has a re- t
markable record. It has been in use for
over thirty years, during which time j
many million bottles have been sold and c
used. It has long been the standard and q
main reliance in the treatment of croup ^
in thousands of homes, yet during this j
time no case has ever been reported to t
the manufacturers in which it failed to t
effect a cure. When given as soon as the
child becomes hoarse, or even as soon as
the eroupy cough appears, it will prevent
the attack. It is pleasant to take, many .
children like it. It contains no opium or 1
other harmful substances, and may be ('
given as confidently to a baby as to an
adult. For sale by Bamberg Pharmacy. ?
Historic Slippers. J
Shoes and slippers have played an im- c
portant part in history and tradition. An c
instructive collection of historic footgear u
is shown in The Delineator for October, r
including dress slippers of Marie Antoi- ]
nette and many other quaint, curious spec
imens of bygone centuries. The shoes or
the present day represent a great advance t
in the quality of comfort, it would seem,
but in elaboration and artistic ornamen- ^
tation they must yield to the footwear of t
earlier times. The shoes of the fourteenth
century were guilded or engraved ornate- t
ly. Ladies' shoes of the fifteenth century
were wooden, curiously carved. The t
seventeenth century was most prolific in
the different styles of shoes produced, and
the materials from which they were fasliioued
were the richest. The shoes of the .
Orient have always been extremely }
elaborate. _ .
A Purgative Pleasure. (
If you ever took DeWitt's Little Early *
Risers for biliousness or constipation, j
you know what a purgative pleasure is. ?
These famous pills cleanse the liver and
rid the system of all bile without produc- i
ing unpleasant effects. They do not f
gripe, sicken or weaken, but give strength j
to the tissues and organs involved. W, <
11. Howell, Houston, Texas, savs: "No
better pill can be used than Little Early
Risers for constipation, scik headache, t
etc." Sold by Dr. H. F. Hoover. (

Train Kills 82 Cows. ?
Rr chmond, V a., September 14.?Thirtytwo
fine milch cows owned by Mr. J. G. 8
Linsley, of Henrico, were killed by an (
incoming passenger on the Chesapeake &
Ohio railroad.
Engineer Charles Demain had blown ?
the whistle as usual for the crossing at J
Hunslet, but as the train thundered
around the curve a herd of 100 or more
cows rushed on the track. They were
terror-stricken, aud, iustead of fleeing 1
from the danger, huddled together. The ]
train, which could not be stopped, plowed (
through the cattle, tearing and grinding (
their bodies to pieces. Blood, bone ana ]
beef were scattered in- all directions and i
the wheels were clogged with bones, hoofs i
and hides. One cow was thrown in the t
air and landed on the third coach. The <
horrified passengers thought there had <
been a head-on collision. No human being
was hurt in the carriages.
Beautiful Women. i
Pluirp cheeks, flushed with the soft '
glow of health and a pure complexion, ]
make all women beautiful. Take a small
dose of Herbine after each meal; it will
prevent constipation, and help digest
what you have eaten. 50c. Mrs. W. M. 1
Stroud, Midlothian, Texas, writes, May
31, 1901: "We have used herbine in our j
family for eight years, and found it the i
best medicine we ever used for constipa- j
tion, bilious fever and malaria." Sold by j

College Hazers Fired On by a "Rat" i
Opelika, Ala., Sept 14.?A fusilade of j
shots and a badly wounded man were the
results of an attempt to haze some new
studeuts at the Alabama Polytechnic (
Institute at Auburn Thursday night. The j
facts have just leaked out and are'creating
considerable interest. Rumors of new J
students, who are called "rats," being 1
rolled in fresh mortar or drenched with
syrup or who have other indignities heaped
upon them, are also spoken of. Thursday
night a young man called "Monk" <
Landrum, who is not a student now, led j
a crowd of old students in pursuit of a <
new one to haze kim. Visions of a possi- j
ble beating or other iudignity being i
heaped upon him caused the new student <
to ilee. Seeing he was goiug to be over- (
taken by Landrum, he stopped and opened i
tire, badly wounding Landrum, who, there ]
upon, desisted. Other shots were tired but <
the particulars have never gotten out. <
Distress After Eating Cared. . i
Judge W. T. Holland, Greensburg, La., *
who is well and favorably known, says: <
"Two years ago I suffered greatly from s
indigestion. After eating, great distress <
would invariably result, lasting for an 1
hour or so, and my nights were restless. *

What She Thought of Him.
A little girl, suffering with toothache,
as in his chair to have the tooth removed,
he refused to let him proceed at first,
sing afraid of the pain. "It won't hurt
ou, little one," said the deutist. "There,
ow, open your mouth. It won't hurt."
[alf a minute's work removed the tooth,
ad as the little girl cried softly the
entist said: "Didn't I tell you it
ouldn't hurt ? What do you think of me,
ow?" Looking up at him with her big
rown eyes she replied: "I think you
re the biggest liar in town." The dentist

Story of "Bill Arp."
I heard the Maior tell of a "cracker"
ustice of the peace who came to him for
idvice. Said the justice of the peace:
See here, Lawyer Smith, I got a case on
land like this: Two young lawyers each
irgued his respective side of this 'tarual
:ase, but neither one cited a precedent,
^ow, I just decides all cases by counting
he number of precedents cited, right
laud for plaintiff and left hand fingers
or defendant. Now, darn my buttons if
:ither one of them skunks has gi'n me
.nytbiug to haug a decisiou on!" The
flajor told him to decide according to
ommon sense. "I never heard tell o' no
)ourt decision based on no common sense
tefure," said the justice of the peace. The
Tajor said that the more he reflected on '
he matter the more convinced he became
hat the justice of the paece was right.
Fearful Odds Against Him. '
Bedridden, alone and destitute. Such,
n brief, was the condition of an old sollier
by name of J. J. Havens, Versailles,
). For years he was troubled with kidley
disease, and neither doctors nor medcines
gave relief. At length he tried
Electric Bitters. It put him on hi9 feet j
n short order, and now he testifies: "I'm <
>n the road to complete recovery." Best ;

"I never waste words on a fool," said
he nomnous Derson.
'"fliat doesn't correspond with your
vife's statement," replied the party of
he second part.
"What did my wife say?" queried
hep. p.
"That you were in the habit of talking^
o yourself," answered the other.
The Genuine vs. Counterfeits.
The genuine is always better than counerfeits,
but the force of the statement is
lever more forcibly realized or more
horoughly appreciaied than when you
compare the genuine DeWitt's Witch Hasel
Salve with the many counterfeits and
worthless substitutes that are on the market.
W. S. Ledbetter, Shreveport, La.,
lays: "After using numerous other remedies
without benefit, one box of DeWitt's
Witch Hazel Salve cured me." For blind,
deeding, itching and protruding piles no
emedy is equal to DeWitt's Witch Hazel
Salve. Sold by Dr. H. F. Hoover.
"What's the charge?" the justice asked
he officer who had brought in the object
>f the next item on the docket.
"Vagrancy, yer honor."
"Are you homeless?" the justice asked
he prisoner.
"Temporarily," was the reply.
"When did you work last ? "
"Well, about a year ago I had a drugitore,
"And you couldn't make a living with
i drugstore!" exclaimed tne justice exdtedly,
leaning over the bar.
"Ninety days! A man who can't make
i living with a drug store ought to be put
iway permanently!"
Stomach Trouble.
"I have been troubled with my stomach
'or four years," says D. L. Beach, Clover
tfook Farm, Greenfield, Mass. "A few
lays ago I was induced to buy a box of
Chamberlain's Stomach and Liver Tabets.
I have taken a part of them, and
feel a great deal better." If you have any
:roublc with your stomach, try a box of
diese tablets. You are certain to be pleasid
with the result. Price 25 cents. For

A strange coincidence happened out in

the chords in my leg to contract, and an
ibscessto rise on my knee, and the doctor
told me I would have a stiff leg, so
ane day I went to J. F. Lord's drug store
[who is now in Denver, Colo.) He recommended
a bottle of Snow Liniment; I got
? 50c size, and it cured my leg. It is the
best liniment in the world."

may, however, result from blows, or from
foreign bodies, introduced into the skin

Not as They Used to Be.
Things have "changed" in the past
quarter of a century. Three score years
tgo the average boy would go out on
Sunday, climb a tree and partake of a
few quarts of mull>erries, and top olT
with a pocket full of green apples and
salt. The next morning the mother
liagnosed his trouble as "worms" and he
was made to swallow a half a bottle of
Prey's vermifuge, a quarter of a pound of
;psom salts, and was turned loose in the
;ow pasture until supper time, when he
would come in for a square meal all
ight. Now if a boy complains of having
i "stitch" in the side he has "appendiiitis"
and is hustled off to a hospital,
itarved within an inch of his life, half a
lozen surgeons each take a whack at him
with pearl handled knives, and he is
urned over to his friends or the uuderaker?Freeport

What is Life?
In the last analysis nobody knows, but
ve do know that it is under strict law.
Vbuse that law even slightly, pain remits.
Irregular living means derange
