at the approaching town election. !
E. C. Hays has begun to rebuild
his brick store on Main street, recently
destroyed by fire. i
Work on J. A. Spann's two-story
brick building is progressing rapidly.
The stores will soon be ready for
occupancy.
Mr. C. R. Calhoun has again been
reelected as principal of the Walterboro
graded school, which position

' The cool weather and frosty nights
recently have done much damage to
gardens and field crops. Much corn
r t will have to be plowed up and planted
over.
The cement sidewalks are great
additions to Main street. Now let
the incoming city council pave Main
street. We can do it, and it ought
to be done.
After the 15th of April the merchants
in many towns in the State
will close their places of business at
six o'clock. Why should not this be i
done in Bamberg?
An appreciative subscriber, in remitting
for The Herald another year,
-M says: "The paper gets better with
every issue." That's the kind of
talk that delights an editor's heart.
The county dispensary board was
in cDccinn Viorp Mrvndav. with all the
tr^ -JU UWOlVii IAV&V J . .
members present. No definite action
_ has yet been taken in reference to
re-establishing the Midway dispensary.
In another column city council
gives notice of the municipal election
&' and also the election on the question
of issuing bonds for waterworks.
Both elections are to be held on Tuesday,
May 7th.
Mr. M. F. Hair, of Williston, died
fe- suddenly last Thursday. He was tying

in an unconscious condition. He
leaves a wife and daughter, and one ,
eson, A. S. Hair, of Branchville.
Mr. James Henry Moody, the <
young white man who is seriously ill, ;
0 r desires though our paper to sincerely

ed to the fund for the purchase of
medicines and nourishment for him.

Our city council should not be
p. afraid to spend money for. improveh
- ment of the streets of the town.
Spend the money rightly and nobody
will kick, even if you have to
|P raise taxes. A levy of six mills for
" a town like Bamberg is too low anywav.

The regular monthly meeting- of
the Woman's Home Mission Society
will be held next Tuesday afternoon
g in the ladie's parlor of the Methodist

There has been a great transforma- i

pretty as soon as the grass grows and ;
covers the ground.

% Mr. S. S. Williams, of the Govan
section, brought us last Saturday
something of a freak in the shape of
a hen egg. It is not only small and
of a queer shape, but has a sort of
neck on it like a gourd. In fact it
resembles a gourd more than it does
an egg. Mr. Williams says all the
eggs of this hen's recent latter were
small and this was one of the last
ones laid, although^ previous to this
her eggs had been of ordinary size.
The Confederate Monument.
Editor Bamberg Herald?Dear Sir:
You asked in last week's Herald
what had become of the Confederate
monument movement. You may
remember that about one year ago, a
committee of some ten or fifteen per
oil fVia f'nnntv
SOIlS, UlbLi iuutcu an n T vuv
to solicit subscriptions was appointed
and urged to go to work. Our committee
in Bamberg went to work at
once and suceeded in getting subscribed
about twelve hundred dollars.
The other committees have not reported
as much as fifty dollars.
If we had about eight hundred
dollars more we could erect a handsome
monument, but we cannot get
any more from this town and unless
the balance of the county furnishes
the additional eight hundred dollars
the monument must fall through.
Yours truly, H. J. Brabham.

J. C. Kirkland.
Mr J r. K-Jrldand died at the
home of his son, Mr. Henry Kirkland; i
in the Buford's Bridge section of
this county Monday of last week. He
was seventy-six years old, and had
been seriously sick for a week or
more. Mr. Kirkland was a twin
brother of Dr. N. F. Kirkland, Sr.,
and was born and reared in the community
where he died. He leaves
several children, all grown. His
wife died a number of years ago.
He was the father of Dr. E. Kifkland
and Mr. J. Ham Kirkland. The
burial took place at Mizpah church
at Buford's Bridge on Tuesday, the
services being conducted by Rev. R.
A. Yongue. Mr. Kirkland leaves a
very large circle of friends and numerous
relatives who are grieved at
his death. He was a good man and an
excellent citizen, and will be missed
in his community.
Rice-Melton.
Wednesday of last week, April
10th, Miss Julia Rice, a daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. J. A. J. Rice, and Mr.
Melton, of the Cope section of
Orangeburg county, were nappny
married at the home of the bride's
parents just above town. The short
but beautiful oeremony was impressively
performed by the Rev.
Dr. Simpson of Norway. The bride
was the recipient of many beautiful
and useful presents.
Immediately after the ceremony
the happy young couple left for
their future home in Orangeburg
county, where the bride has been
teaching for the last two years. The
congratulations of their many friends
go with them.
Death of Capt W. E. Sease.
Capt. W. E. Sease, a well-known
citizen of this county, died at his
home in the Ehrhardt section last
Friday. He had been in bad health
for many months, and his death was
not a surprise to those who knew of
his condition. He was in his seventyfirst
year, and leaves a widow and
several children, all grown. He
was born and reared at the place
where he died, this plantation having
been in possession of members of
his family for more than one hundred
years.
The funeral services and burial
were at Mt. Pleasant Lutheran
church, of which he was a member,
Sunday morning, the sermon being
preached by Rev. P. E. Monroe, the
pastor. Capt. Sease's popularity was
V*\7 f Via nrpvnpp of a
tVCIl WJ V**V ^ wwwaav?
great throng, the church being filled
and many being on the outside unable
to get in.
After the services by Mr. Monroe,
the body was buried with Masonic
honors by his brethren of Buford
Lodge of Jenny, Capt. Sease having
been a former Master of the lodge
and a life member of the same.
Capt. Sease was well-known and
popular in this and Barnwell counties.
Just after Bamberg cdunty
was formed, he served several terms
as Auditor. He had a smile and a
kind word for every one, and his
genial manner and warm hearted
cleverness endeared him to a large
circle of friends.
Children's Party.
The pretty home of Mr. and Mrs.
John Cooner was opened on Monday
evening to a number of friends of
their young son, Marion, in honor of
his fourteenth birthday.

cal selections were enjoyed, after
which all had the opportunity to participate
in the following unique
scheme planned by Mrs. Cooner:
A large tray filled with small
articles to be found in the home, was
placed on a table in the drawing
room. The guests were allowed to
pass through the room and observe
the tray. A large box of chocolates
andjbon bons was awarded the one
who could write the greatest number
of names of articles seen on the
tray, Miss Alma Black being the
fortunate winner.
Delightful refreshments were
served in the beautifully decorated
dining room, and the evening passed
all too rapidly for the honored guests,
who were:

Said the'speaker at a lawyers' dinner:
"We lawyers couldn't do better
than to resolve in the new year to
be gentler in our cross-examinations.
Rudeness in cross-examination never,
never pays. This is a truth that I once
saw proved in a damage suit. In this
suit a cross-examination lawyer
shouted at a witness in overalls: 'You
there, in the overalls, how much are
you paid for telling untruths?' 'Less
than you are,' the witness retorted,
I 'or you'd be in overalls, too.' "?Kansas
