Work on the various buildings and
improvements in town is progressing as
rapidly as could be expected, and a number
of "new buildings will soon be ready
for occupancy.
Candidates who want the farmers'
votes had better not call upon them
while they are busy fighting the grass,
unless they are willing to take a hoe and
do a little work themselves.
The outlook now is that there will be
more than one thousand lights wired in
i for stores and residences by the time the
electric plant is ready to run. Our peodle
are showing a progressive spirit.

Our legislative delegation has recommended
for appointment the same county
board of control whioh has been managing
dispensary affairs in this county for
several years, consisting of J. J. Jones, of
Bamberg, chairman, C. R. Clayton, of
Ehrhardt, and C. C. Ellzey, of Denmark.
A representative of the Southern Bell
Telephone Company was in the city last
P week to look into the matter of doing

sion society. Mrs. Sojourner makes an
excellent officer and she is warmly beloved
by a large circle of friends.?Baptist
Bamberg expects to have one of the
very best electric light plants in the State.
The power house will be a neat and attractive
building, and the machinery is of
the newest and most approved type and
best make. If. our people give the plant
the patronage it should receive, the
plant ought to be a financial success.
Certainly the board of public works have
done their part in the way of hard work.
Bamberg is certainly growing and improving
right along, as will be noted
from our postoffice receipts. Last year
the salary of the postmaster at this place
was raised from $1,300 to $1,400, and last
week Postmaster J. P. Murphy received
notice that his salary had again been
raised $100, which makes the postoffice
now pay $1,500 a year. This is one of
the surest evidences of a town's growth
-and prosperity.
Numbers of our people are having
their residences and stores wired for
lights. It is thought that by the time the
^>knt is ready to run there will be at
least 1200 lights wired in. This is the
proper spirit for our people to show. The
electric light plant belongs to the town
and it is to the interest of every citizen

ing wiring, and there is no excuse for
anybody not haviDg lights.

Brown, of Aiken, as assistants. The

examination unless the tpacher attends a
summer school.
The Savannah Valley Lumber Company,
which has for a good while been
buying timber rights and lands along the
Lower Three Runs and tributaries, will
soon begin to deforest the swamps. The
officials last week selected a site near the
Coast Line crossing of the Runs for a
saw mill with daily capacity of fifty
thousand feet, and located four or six

Dr. Geo. F. Hair is having his cottages
for rent wired for electric lights. This is
something which every landlord shojild
do. Some people who own property for
rent object to paying for the wiring, but
surely it is not right for a tenant to pay
for this work. The Fitting School authorities
are also having the cottages
which they rent wired for lights.

and Miss Minnie Yarn, daughter of Mr.

complete, and the building is being made (
ready for the roof and floor. The boilers
are in, the smoke stack is up, and the ;
erection of the pole line is about finished. '

Some weeks ago citv council ordered ?
all gates opening on the sidewalks of the
town to be changed so as to open inward. ]
A policeman went around and notified <
the parties, and yet the order of council 1
has been largely ignored. Only three J
people in town, we believe, changed their ,
gates and yet there are a number of vio- <
lators 01 cms law. uouncu ougui tu enforce
the law on all alike, and if the law
is not going to be enforced by them, they
should repeal it. Don't have it on the
books as a dead letter.
City council expects to take up the
waterworks matter at an early day. In
order that there might be no delay in the
construction of the reservoir for the cotton
mill, the suction pipe to connect the
reservoir to the steam pump has been
ordered and will be laid right away.
This will obviate all difficulty, and the
pump can be installed and the mains laid
at any time. It is likely that work will
begin as soon as all the details can be
arranged. This will take time, but our
citizens can rest assured that council is
not idle and that we will have the waterworks
before very long.

Queer Canadian Stood Two Boors
oo the Brink of
the Falls.
Forty Men Sat on One End of It While
Two Crawled Oat tod Polled Would
Be Suicide From the Roaring
Making their way out on a shaky
ladder twenty-fire feet over the very
brink of Niagara falls, Fireman Thomas
Conroy and Patrolman Dennis
Blake rescued a man who had attempted
suicide and was about to be swept
over the edge to the lower level. The
slightest slip would have meant death
for all three.
The ladder, resting on a ledge of rock
at the river edge, was weighted down
on the shore end by twoscore men,
while the intrepid volunteers crawled
slowly out to where the would be suicide
was clinging to a ledge of rock
ten feet from the roaring abyss.
As they reached over to seize him the
man in the water fought them, and the
struggle for life was witnessed with
bated breath by the spectators.
The man whose act called forth this
exhibition of bravery gave his name as
Amos Schwertzer, although the police
believe him to be Amos Robinson of
Toronto. He was well dressed and came
from St Catherine's. In his pockets
was found $5.45. He refused to make
any statement as to why he wanted to
die when locked up at police head/inavtttM
Schwertzer, or Robinson, was discovered
by some negroes In tbe river close
to the Prospect shore. The rashlng water
swirled about Mm, and he seemed
about to be swept from tils feet He
was wading oat, and the men called to
him to return, bat instead he went oat
Tbe men notified Policeman Blake,
who brought a long pole. With this he
waded oat and thrust It toward
Schwertzer, teQing him .to take hold.
Schwertzer did as he was bidden, but
instead of coming ashore pulled Blake
out into Jpe stream. Blake held on as
long as be* dared and finally cast pie
pole away and returned to shore.
By this time Schwertzer had been
carried from bis footing and, with a
wild, despairing cry, was swept toward
the awful abyss, 500 feet away. Just
at the edge be was buried against
Thunder tedga, and this be seized. In
the bright moonlight bis face presented
a ghastly hoe, while be held on with
the water dragging at him as though
he had changed bis mind as to the
value of Hftk.
By this time the policeman bad telephoned
to die headquarters, and a fire
truck was sent to the scene, carrying
an extension tedder. This was run out
over the tedgei Slowly It waa pushed
over the falls* and as K passed the balancing
point men sat upon it to Keep It
from falling into the river.
Finally the forty foot ladder extended
its length into the stream. Fifteen
feet was on the shore side of the fulcrum,
and on this tunuscore men were
Volunteers were then called for to go
out on the trembling ladder./
Policeman and fireman stepped forward,
and with Blake in the fore they
crawled out on bands and knees till
they hnng suspended directly over
where Sctrwerizer was fast slipping to
Fireman Conroy reached down and
seized the man by the collar. The man
fought him! but Conroy would not let
go. Aided by Blake, Conroy drew the
straggling form up from the torrent
Thus In air be was carried to the shore,
bis rescued being greeted with a
cheer. ... -. ...::v
