The prospects are fine for an unusually large attendance at the Carlisle Fitting School this fall. Parents |g\ are realizing the fine training given their boys and girls at this institu tion.

This is the first ' of a series of lectures to be given under the joint management of the several church organizations. Others will follow from time to time.

Woman's Home Missionary Society Entertained by Mrs. Kirsch. Just at this season of the year when so many of the ladies are away in the mountains, at the seashore, or enjoying life at the various watering ?--V. 3 places, tne various ciuds auu suuicuco are very apt to go into summer quarters and no meetings are held in July. But here the unceasing activity and unfailing interest in the welfare of her society and the pleasure of its members is shown, when Mrs. Kirsch, the beloved president of the Home Mission Society, invited each and every member to meet with her in her home last Tuesday afternoon, the time of the regular meeting. This is not the first time that the society has been so entertained by Mrs. Kirsch?in fact the July meeting has come to be one looked for in pleasant anticipation by the members ?so quite a crowd assembled on the porches at the hour #of 5:30. After the devotional exercises and reports of officers, a delightful program, consisting of readings by Miss Llewellyn Cleckley, Mrs. G. F. Bamberg, and Mrs. W. P. Jones, and a paper, brim-full of earnest thought and a plea for the unfortunate, sick and lowly of our land, by Mrs. Kirsch, was enjoyed. During the social hour which followed, most delightful cream, with chocolate and marshmallow cake, was served by Misses Genevieve Kirsch and Mary Ellen Eaves. ' It was decided not to hold the August meeting, but the work of ministering to those in need will go on, and the members it is hoped will all come together in September with new life and resolution to do more and better work than ever before.

Mcdowell, " D. 0. HUNTER, Pastor. Church Clerk. Played in St. Matthews. The Calhoun Advance, published at St. Matthews, has the following to say about our base ball team which played three games there last week: "The base ball aggregation from Bamberg came over Monday and played three games with the locals, our boys simply had the visitors at their mercy in both of the games. And are battling it out as we go to press, for the 3rd game which will very likely be captured by the locals. St. Matthews has one of the strongest all home team in the State and we would like to meet the team on our home diamond that dares dispute this." Union Meeting.

I A university professor, who has greatly endeared himself to his students on account of his kind-heartedness, has one particular failing?that of absent-mindedness. He visited his married nephew a few days ago and had listened to the young wife's praise of her firstborn. The gentleman felt that he must say something to give the impression that he was interested. "Can the dear little fellow walk?" he inquired quietly. "Walk," shouted the mother. "Why, he has been walking for five months." "Dear me!" exclaimed the professor, lapsing again into abstraction. "What a long way he must have got!"?London Saturday Journal. Fynnd Out His Man. A Southerner who was visiting in St. Louis wandered into the dining room of the hotel, and seeing a negro servant who had all the importance of an army officer standing near the door, asked him who the "head nig*ger" was around there. The negro stretched himself up to his full height and pompously replied that "there ain't no niggers in St. Louis, sah. We is all gem'men of color." "Well," said the Southerner, 'drawing a $100 bill from^his pocket and fingering it, "I expect to be at this hotel for some time and want to make sure that I will be taken cane or/ "Oh, sah," said the negro whose eyes were popping from his head, "did you want to know who the head 'nigger waiter' is?

A detachment of British soldiers was about to attack a tribe of rebel Indian tribesmen, who awaited them drawn up in battle order. A seasoned old sergeant noticed a young soldier frish from home, visibly affected by the nearness of the coming fight. His face was pale, his teeth chattered and his knees tried hard to knock each other out. It was sheer nervousness but the sergeant thought ! it was downright funk. "Callaghan," he whispered, "is it trimblin' ye are for yer own dirty skin?" "N-no, sergint," replied Callaghan, making a brave attempt to still his shaking limbs, "O'im trimblin' for the inimy. They don't know Callaghan's here."?Ideas. The Bamberg Herald says that Governor Blease has never done anything against the railroads.

Rrn Smnak aava the Sundav-I school a good talk on "Playing at Sunday-school Work," from a description of Mr. Wannamaker's Sunday-school in Philadelphia. Free Lecture Course. An announcement of unusual interest to the people of Bamberg, and especially those who will remain at home during the remainder of the summer, was made Sunday afternoon to the members of Trinity Methodist Sunday-school. This is in brief that a series of illustrated lectures will bfe given from time to time during the summer; the course will also be continued through the winter, but the numbers will not be so near together as in August and September. The Sunday-school, the Home and Foreign Mission societies, ana tne i Epworth League, have all combined j to install a first-class stereopticon and the outfit has already arrived and will be ready for use just as soon as the proper adjustments can be made at the church. Arrangements have been perfected with the Christian Lantern Slide and Lecture Bureau whereby lectures will be rented for the course. All of this outlay means money invested, but the people of the church departments are doing this as a matter of help to the community, for without a doubt the course must be very uplifting and entertaining. It is the plan, of those in charge to have the first lecture on next Tuesday evening at the regular Epworth League hour. The lecture will be given in the auditorium of Trinity M. E. church, and a large canvas twelve feet by twelve will be used to receive the large pictures. The marvelous tale of the Christ, Ben Hur, will be produced as the opening number. About 80 slides or more, some colored, will be use. Every one is invited to attend this lecture and bring a friend with them. From month to month the name of every pupil of the school who has not missed a session of the school will be thrown on the canvas and have part in the "Stereopticon Honor Roll." Reunion Company G. The annual reunion of Co. G, 1st S. C. V., will be held at Bethesda church on the 27th day of July (Thursday.) Everybody is cordially invited to attend, with well filled basicAt.s.

When the conductor came to collect the young lady's fare she discovered that she had left her pocketbocfk at the office where she works as stenographer. It was a "predicament not uncommon with city dwellers, but the rest of the story as told takes a new and agreeable turn. "Why, I'm afraid I haven't any money with me," she said looking very much embarrassed. The conductor said nothing, but stood there and waited. "I guess I'll have to get off," said the girl. "I have left my pockeibook at the office." "Here, lady," said a boyish voice coming from across the aisle. "I got a nickel I'll lend you." She looked at the boy and took the nickel. "Thank you," she said. "I'll pay you back if you'll give me your name." "Don't worry 'bout that," he replied: "I'm the kid you give the half dollar to las' Christmas when you seen me sellin' papers down by the Savoy. I ain't forgot you. I'm sellin' papers there yet." She smiled at him when he left the car and he was about the proudest boy in town.?Denver Times. . . : . >x '. . .. -\S: . vV-i-.v .THE WAGES OP SIX. Young Man Who Robs Uncle Sam Lands in Pen. After a meteoric career, whose lavish expenditures rivaled the fabled prodigality of "Coal Oil Johnny," Edward Valentine Lee, erstwhile paymaster's clerk on board the United States battleship Georgia, having confessed his crime, will soon take up his residence in the federal prison at Atlanta to serve a term of several years. By a strange irony of fate, Lee, who only three months ago, startiea Atlanta as a young Croesus, living in a palatial suite at Atlanta's best hotel, showering jewels, dinners, theatre parties and auto rides on a pretty manicure girl, will now return to this very city to be clothed in convict gray and expiate in a cell at the federal penitentiary the crime by which he obtained the gold that burned his fingers. Lee's career as a spendthrift has few parallels in crimonology. Scarce had he looted the cruiser's safe on February 17 and disappeared from the fleet before a mysterious individual of the name of A. W. Carmichael commenced a meteoric career as "prince of spenders" in the cities of the Southern Atlantic seaboard. This seeming millionaire endeared himself to the hearts of hotel waitresses, bellboys and chauffers by passing out $100 bills as though they were cigar coupons. Early in his wanderings he turned up in Atlanta, Ga., where in a few short days he distributed sufficient money to make him known throughout the continent. He presented a lady manicurist with $1,000 bank note for the pleasure of her company during a taxicab ride and tipped the chauffer with the comparative moderate sum of $100. The waiter who served his table received $50 after each meal an an incentive to prompt service. A bellboy with a jug of ice water invariably drew a $20 bank note for his trip upstairs. The publicity that this lavishness brought ^iim made a quick move necessary, and young Lee with the gov* J - J -4-1 ? ? - ? " J M eminent aetecuves uuc jump m wc rear, changed his quarters successively to Washington, New York, Philadelphia, and several Southern cities, becoming acquainted on the route with a Miss Audrey Kelsey, who consented to share the young spendthrift's fortune. In March they* went to Europe, where he was easily trailed by the nrUtl wMptl hA iHflllATlRfid i cnuiucoo TT ivu nutvu MV his spoils. On June 8 he sailed for Quebec, where he and his companion spent several days in sight-seeing. A little later Miss Kelsey evinced a desire to visit her parents in Buffalo, and Carmichael, with a recklessness that had characterized his course after the theft, accompanied her. He was arrested in Buffalo on June 21, and a few days later was married to the young woman who had been his companion during his extensive wanderings. ABOUT PENSION FRAUDS. i ' i Moral Awakening of the Country Likely to Have Effect. The moral awakening which is upon the country has yet/ to direct the full force of its fire upon the pension frauds, says the World's Work, This delay is not unnatural, for there is no scandal in which so many thousands of respectable people are involved, none of whose beneficiaries form so powerful a political factor, none which requires of the press such great courage for its discussion. Yet, however, numerous and influential are those who desire to keep the subject quiet, the number of those to whose interest it is to have it discussed is far greater. There Is no branch of the government in which more money is misspent, none in which retrenchment and reform are more urgently called for than they are called for in the bureau which, last year distributed $1d0,uuv,uvu oi tue ywpio b uiuuc;.i The country is now beginning to understand, not in a vague way, but as a definite demonstrated fact, that, while most of this money goes to the j well deserving, a good many millions are falling into the hands of fake veterans, bounty-jumpers, impersonators, c^mp-followers, deserters, maligners and bogus widows. Was the Division Just? A Chinaman, dying, left eleven] sheep and three sons; and making a will, left one-half of his estate to his oldest boy, one-fourth to the next and one-sixth to the third son. They wished to divide without killing a sheep but could not see how to do it, so they sent for a wise lawyer. Sending to his own .fold for a sheep, he put it in with the eleven. Now take your half?six, said he to the eldest, and he did so; the second, take your fourth?three; the youngest, take your sixth and begone?two; and. they did so, when the wise lawyer drove his own sheep home. Was the division according to the will? j SPECIAL NOTICES. ,S Advertisements Under This Head 25c. . For 25 Words or Less. V , Buy your fruit jars at Hunter's Hardware Store.
