' ra m Brief Items of Interest Throughout cc the Town and County. cc There has been a large crowd of tl people in the city this week, attend- p( ing court. The wet damp days continue. When th will it clear off sufficiently for the w farmers to go to work? p< Representative J. A. Hunter an- st nounces himself in this issue as a m candidate for re-election. pi Dr. J. B. Black announces himself s* in this issue as a candidate for re- lt4 election to the State Senate. *n w J. Wesley Crum, Jr., of Denmark, announces himself in this issue as a candidate for the legislature. gI D1 We still have some vegetable seed ^ cr on nana, ana win oe giau iu give them to those who will call. pl The wet weather continues, and in ce consequence the farmers are being dl put very much behind with their work. lit J. B. Hunter is the name of Bam- w berg's sheriff and he says he is going tj to be a candidate for superintendent sy of the penitentiary.?Newberry Her- gr aid and News. The Bamberg Guards are to be in- 0f speeted this (Wednesday) afternoon ji? on the Fitting School campus, and E: Adjutant and Inspector General W. sp W. Moore is in the city for this pur- jc pose. in Mrs. Henry F. Bamberg cordially he invites the Mite Box Brigade to meet th with her on Friday afternoon at 4 vi o'clock. The members are requested aE to bring their boxes, as this is the he regular time for the opening of the th boxes. hi The grading of the railroad be- aE tween Bamberg and Ehrhardt is prac- fr tically completed, notwithstanding ca the bad weather. Crossties have aE been placed on a portion of the road, and soon the work of track laying will begin. We are republishing this week the ar statement of the Bamberg Banking fo Company, as there was an error in it last week. The footing should have es been $310,021.97, yet we had it as $301,021.97, an error of nine thous- m and dollars. Master H. C. Folk sold a tract of fo land here Monday in the case of ui Black vs. Tucker. The tract contain- lei o/i Qifi c was hrmerht bv Mr. mi D. M. Eaves for $2,175. At the sale id the first Monday in February it th brought $2,600, but the bidder did in not comply. sa A kind note from Maj. Joe Carter, re of Lodge, gives his age at 75 years, yet he says he and three families of ar descendants who live near together 2 c all glory in reading The Herald. May Sc the Major spend many more years ed here to bless and brighten the lives 53 of those afound him! T1 Rev. M. B. Kelly, a well known and m prominent member of the South ^ Carolina conference, died at his home . in Spartanburg last Thursday after an extended illness. Mr. Kelly was so formerly pastor of the Denmark Methodist church, and had many tu friends in this section. t0 The next of the series of life-work lectures at the Carlisle Fitting School will be next^ Friday evening, when Rev. R. S. Truesdale, pastor of Trinity Methodist cuurch, Charleston, will lecture on "The Ministry as a . Life-Work." Mr. Truesdale is one pc of the strongest speakers in the South 1 * ? ^ - ? v* /3 rt?r? Irri Anr uaroima couiereuw, auu ?^ nuvn that he will delight his hearers. A reference was lj^ld here last to Thursday before Referee A. J. Hyd- pr rick in the matter of the bankruptcy matter of H. C. Copeland & Co., of tl< Ehrhardt. This matter has been in tr litigation for about a year, and it seems that it will be some time be- cl fore it is finally wound up. Among Fi the visiting attorneys attending the fo reference were W. H. Fleming, of or Augusta, and C. E. Gyles, of Aiken, ni One of the very best of the lifework lectures at the Carlisle Fitting ejSchool was that delivered last C1 Wednesday evening by Prof. W. H. Hand on "Teaching as a Life-Work." No synopsis of this lecture would do it justice, but many of those already oi teaching should have heard it. Mr. Hand is a most pleasing speaker, a cl man who is thoroughly in love with 91 fVia nrnfpscinn r>f fpnphiri^. and it was fc a great pleasure to have heard him. tc We intended to mention last week the magnificent address of Mrs. Atkins, at the Methodist church the previous Sunday, but neglected it. She is really one of the most entertain- ei ing and convincing speakers we ever n: listened to, and it is no wonder that 9 crowds greet her everywhere she n: speaks. The temperance people are c< fortunate in having her as one of a: their speakers. We understand that tl the local W. C. T. U. will likely ar- e: range to have Richmond Pearson tl Hobson and possibly Ex-Gov. Glenn, of North Carolina, deliver addresses p here in the near future. Y It will soon be time to "swat f." Begin early, and there w< ? so much trouble to get rid of JSt. Just suppose it should keep lining this way for a month or ore, what would become of i >untry? The time for paying State i uinty taxes expires the 15th lis month. After that the he malty attaches. We received a notice of a de lis week, but as we do not ki ho wrote it, we do not print eople who w-rite for newspai lould remember that the real n? ust be signed, but it will not lblished if the writer does not re it. A newspaper would soon self into lots of trouble by publi g articles written by persons \ ere unknown.

After read e 23rd Psalm, Mrs. Hodges led prayer, then followed gems yings of Miss Willard, which w ad by several members.
