THE BAMBERG HERALD.
Established 1891 BAMBERG, S. C., THURSDAY, JUNE 29, 1905 One Dollar a Year
WAS VICTIM OF POLITICS.
, Dr. Hartzog no Longer President of the University
of ArkansasDr.
Henry S. Hartzog, formerly presiv
dent of Clemson college, and until recently
president of the University of Arkansas,
has lost his place as the head of that
institution, all because of politics, accordng
to the Memphis Commercial-Appeal.
The Appeal says:
t While the men in control of the public
schools of Arkansas have been fighting
nobly to keep politics at a distance, there
is & serious charge that the removal of Dr.
H. S. Hartzog from the presidency of the
state university is due to this source.
The Springfield News, which is pub
lished in the home county of the university,
makes the direct charge. It claims
that the scholarly educator who has done
Vklo dnfr. on faitKfnllv nrds romnVMl VlACAnse
U10UUVJ 0VUliVUlUUJ rv mw *
of a demonstration of students favoring
Wood for governor over Davis.
Whether true or not, the following
comment which the Appeal makes is certainly
a full truth:
If this be true Arkansas is sowing a
crop of politics in places that will most
certainly raise a harvest of deplorable results
in the near future. The education
of the youth of the land should be absolutely
free from political control. No
man may do his duty as an educator if his
position is to be endangered at the whim
of every ignorant, but popular individual
who may be advanced to high places in
the politics of the State. When politicians
of this sort appear upon the horizon the
people shonld take warning, for they are
of the calibre that builds machines which
will roll over and flatten out all liberal
views and all individuals.
t It is a hard question, which is the worse
to have politicians run a school from the
outside or from the inside. Take the case
in point.?Spartanburg Herald.
The Tombigbee River.
When the Hon. Amos Tuck, of Exeter,
N. Hm was Postmaster General, a day
came when for soihe reason there was a
study of conditions in the region of the
Tombigbee River. Whereupon a letter
was sent to a postmaster in the valley of
? that river, saying that information was
%. wanted at Washington as to how far the
Tombigbee River ran up.
The postmaster promptly made response
as follows:
rj "Dear Sir?The Tombigbee River does
not run up at all; it rnDS down all the
* way."

A Bride's Debt at Whist Luncheon.
A young bride was invited to a bridge
whist luncheon, and, after spending a delightful
afternoon, was told by her hostess
that she was in debt $75, says the New
York Times.
Mrs. , unaware that' she had been
playing for money, was horrified at the
?<***? r?f Ravine to ask her husband for the
4UVW V* ? ?? ?
p .- * necessary amount.
1 She mournfully confided her woes to
him, and he immediately wrote a check
for $76.50 and sent it to the hostess.
The hostess believing that a mistake
had been made, informed him that he had
sent $1.50 too much.
Mr. , however, returned it with this
curt statement that the $75 settled the
bridge score and the balance was for his
wife's luncheon.
Peculiar Theory.
"Uncle Rufus," said the man who takes
an interest in everybody, "what is your
idea of emancipation?"
"Well, suh," was the answer, "some of

tellin' 'em dat de white folks wouldn't be
'sponsible for deir board an' keep no

A Missouri judge recently set a precedent
which may prove embarrassing for
twins. A boarding-house mistress of Kansas
City seized the trunk of A. K. Young
as security for the un paid board bill of his
twin brother, Robert. "Why don't you
pay your board bill?'' the judge asked
the owner of the trunk. "Because I don't
owe any," the young man replied. Then
the judge asked the brothers to stand
together. "I don't see any difference,"
the court remarked. "You're exactly

debt on the ground that the other incurred

Not a Masterpiece..
A Scotchman who had married a widow
noted for her plainness, says Harper's
Weekly, was accosted by his employer.
"Well, Thomas," said the latter, "I hear
you're married. What sort of a woman is
your wife?"
"Well, sir," answered the Scot, "she's
the Lord's handiwork; but I cannot say
she's just His masterpiece."

FRAUD IN PENSIONS.
Prosecution in Colleton County?Sensational
Developments Expected.
As a result of fraudulent pension claims
filed in Colleton county prosecutions are
now pending and one of the biggest sensations
of the year is promised when the
truth is known.
From the facts made public by the chairman
of the county pension board it seems
that in 1901 about a half dozen claims for
pensions for widows were filed before the
state pension board. The applications
had been passed upon by the county
board and thereupon the state board accepted
them. It has just been discovered
that all of the claims are fraudulent and
that the affidavits filed as a result are perjured.
romntroller General Jones said this
morning that these claims had been regularly
paid since they were passed upon by
the state and county boards of 1901 and
the letter received this morning states
that the investigation has just started and
promises to uncover some sensational testimony.
The parties concerned in the
fraud will be brought before the courts
by the grand jury and instructions have'
been issued to push the investigation
through.?Columbia Record.
Shot From Ambugh.
Orangeburg, June 26.?Esau Brunson,
a negro of the Pine Grove section of this
couty, was killed near his home a few days
ago by unknown parties. The deceased
was found dead near the road, and he had
been shot by some one probably in ambush.
Brunson had served a term on the chain
gang some time ago, and bore rather a
bad reputation. It is the supposition that
he was killed by another negro and that
a negro woman was at the bottom of the
affair.
South Carolina Oil.
A Westerner, for 15 years in the oil
business, is prospecting in the earthquake
section of this State for a Wisconsin
company. He thinks that this part of
South Carolina will prove one of the
richest oil fields in the United States and
that in fifteen years Charleston will be
one of the largest cities in the Union.
A few years ago plain oil signs were
seen in an artesian well bored for a Mr.
Lawton, of Hampton county, and the contractor
was sure that he would strike oil
if allowed to go deep enough, but Mr.
Lawton wanted nothing better than
water.?Barnwell People.

He Stopped His Paper.
Once upon a time a man got mad at
the editor and stopped his paper. The
next week he sold his corn for four
cents below the market price. Then
his property was sold for taxes because
he did'nt read the treasurer's sales.
He was arrested and fined $8 for going
hunting on Sunday simply because he
didn't know it was Sunday, and paid
$300 for a lot of forged notes that had
been advertised two weeks and the
Eublic cautioned not to negotiate forthem.
[e then paid a big American with a
foot like a forge hammer to kick him all
all the way to the newspaper office, where
he paid four years in advance and made
the editor sicn an agreement to knock
him down and rob him if he ever ordered
his paper stooped again.?San Francisco

New Use for Macaroni. *
The "lady of the house," who had been ^
wrestling with the servant problem for
several years, recently took a new depart
ure with the hope of solving the riddle,
says the Washington Star. She imported
a young colored girl from one of the lower
counties of Virginia, with the determination
to do or die in the attempt to model
her into an accomplished cook at least.
The usual hitches and disappointments
occnrred, however, until the climax ma- ^
terialized a few days ago. Entering the
kitchen one afternoon the lady of the
house inquired: "Millie, have you cooked j
the macaroni?" j
"What's macaroni?" the importation (
from the country wanted to know. 1
"Why, here it is," the employer ex- ^
plained, indicating the raw material. ^
"What does you do with that?" the girl \
then asked. j
"Eat it, of course," was the reply.
"Good laws," Millie ejaculated. "I j
thought that stuff was what you sucks ;
medicine through." t
How Hot it is in Kansas. \
"This little warm spell we are having
in Washington," says a Kansas Representative
"is an ice factory compared to some
weather I have witnessed in my State? 3
the best in the Union. Why, sir, I have 1
seen it so infernally hot in Kansas that
water would actually boil in the sunshine; 1
fish were drawn out of the water by the
sun's rays, and I remember once where 1
a field of pop corn popped out and a c
warm wind came along and it drifted to 1
such an extent that people thought it a t
snow storm and went home and put on i
their overcoats. Oh, shucks, its hot some
in Kansas, and this weather here is only 1
a side show, and a very small one at
that." i
Deaths from Heart Disease.
e
In New York last week there were 125 j
deaths from heart disease.
Could there be any more clear and
startling indication of the nign and killing
tension at which the people of the
nation's metropolis are living? And New o
York is typical in this respect of the whole
country.
The heart will stand anything within
reason. But it will not stand the terrible E
strain that is put upon it by the life that J
is becoming more and more characteristic
of the people of this country.
A record of 125 deaths from heart failure
in one city in one week contains a story C
that means far more than shows on the
surface of dry statistics.
It tells of living that is all but voluntary

There were nearly a hundred delegates

the warm hospitality of Chester.
Under the efficient management of our
resident, Mrs. M. D. Wightman, and
wing to the nice talks of our missionary,
liss Mary Tarrant, who is just from
2hina, we all felt inspired to better work.
Rev. J. W. Daniel preached the misionary
sermon on Sunday morning. This
ermon was powerful, and one that his

MARRIED IN DENMARK.
The Beautiful Wedding of Miss Ethel Gwendolyn
Rice and Mr. Will Arthur Salters in the
Methodist Church.
Denmark, June 24?A beautiful wedding
was celebrated at the Methodist
church here Wednesday evening at 8.30
o'clock. The contracting parties were
Mr. Will Arthur Salters, a conductor of
the Seaboard Air Line system, and now
residing at Raleigh, N. C., and Miss Ethel

a prominent merchant of this place. Miss
Rice is a popular young lady. She has
always enjoyed the very best advantages
of social influence and is loved by her
J _
uusb ui irieuus.
The church was tastefully decorated.
Down the middle aisle were erected at
regular intervals gorgeous arches of flowers
and just in front of the chancel stood
a larger arch, from the centre of which
hung a large bell made of flowers and
evergreens artistically interwoven, a very
clever piece of work, and as a whole a
scene of beauty. Within the church, and
extending toward the right and the left
was in view a veritable bower of evergreens,
flowers and hot house plants, carefully
arranged. The novel scene, so different
from all other decorations on past
similar occasions, presented a beautiful
panorama to the enchanted audience as
the lights were turned on. The beautiful
tints of the fresh hydrangeas, the predominating
flowers, harmonized so splendidly
with the variegated colors that shad- *
owed here and there in festoons of artful
blendings with white and green back
grounds.

Gedelle Brabham, down the archway of
the centre, thus connecting each interval
of the archwork, presenting the whole at
once as a composite path that widened as ' '
they unwound their ribbon. The brides*
maids, all dressed in white silk, made- - 1
their appearance at this juncture, keeping
perfect time with the leading music, filed
to their places. Misses Estelle Guess,
Roberta Reed, Margarite Steadman and Nettie
Mae Rice served their bridal friend
in this capacity. Then the groom came \ i;
in, accompanied by his friend and best
man, Mr. Tom Milan, of Raleigh N. C.f
and stopped just in front of the arch bearing
the burden of the beautiful bell, whose
chimes were now silent to await the com
ing of the beautiful bride, dressed in cream
siikaline over white taffeta silk, on thearm
of her youngest sister, Miss Ramielle
This accomplished, the groom accompanied
the bride to the altar, where they
were made man and wife in a very impressive
ceremony, by the Rev. E. H.
Beckham, while still the low, vibrating
notes of music could be scarcely heard
The party retired in the reverse order ...
of entrance, and repaired to the home of ,
the bride's father, where a large numberof
invited guests extended their warm ;
congratulations. Several happy hours <*
were spent. It was companionship, un- '
broken friendship, around the festal board
for the last time. The old home, with its," '[
true father, three more daughters and
childhood s happy good-bye greetings of
friends, mingled there together to pay
homage to the handsome grcom and his
beautiful bride. Mr. Salters is the third
son-in-law and significantly like others
taking this title before him, his name is
"Will."
The refreshments were served out in
the long piazza on the south side of the
home under the inspiring lights from
swinging Japanese lanterns.
The wedding gifts were many, useful :
and pretty. A true index of the popu- larity
of the couple.
Mr. Salters and his wife left early
Thursday morning for their future home
in Raleigh, N. C.
G. Frank Bamberg handles the best
buggies and wagons, yet the prices
are reasonable.

prize to the man who brings the most
women to town on Saturday, some give
premiums for the best luck in guessing
the number of beans in a jar, while others
ejive trading stamps to draw trade, but

for the improvement of roads running into
;heir town,they not only create an interest
in their business, but they also improve
;he country.
