Thursday, Sept. 5,1912. SHORT LOCALS. .. a " " ti Brief Items oA Interest Throughout the Town and County. ^ Saturday and Sunday were the u hottest days in five years for Bam- a berg. e We have experienced the hottest weather of the summer the past e week. P Give us your job work and adver- e tising. We need all the business we * can get. c The hot weather is causing cotton to open rapidly, and the receipts at this point are good. V Mrs. J. H. Armstrong is now occu- ^ pying the residence of the late H. J. n Brabham and she will take boarders. r< Bamberg is ahead of many larger t) counties in the State in regard to 11 subscriptions to the Woodrow Wilson c] campaign fund. a The postoffice was closed Monday and the rural carriers did not make a their usual trips, as it was labor day and a legal holiday. The idea of opening the eleven o'clock mail on Sundays after church seems to be a popular one with the T patrons of the office generally. li Many of the summer swallows are P at home from mountain and seashore ^ resorts, as cotton is coming in and ^ business will soon be opening up. 11 The many friends of Mr. H. N. a Folk will be glad indeed to know that 0 he is getting along nicely and no doubt will be out before very long. s i W. R. Fishburne, a Bamberg boy, ^ was defeated for the legislature in Richland county, but he put up a good fight. He opposed the governor strongly, and this no doubt accounted for his defeat. . We publish this week the official cl vote for the primary held last week c< as declared by the executive commit- & tee. While the vote was changed L ?' some from what we had last week J. the results are the same. J. Mr. G. Frank Bamberg, of Bam- ^ berg, is erecting a large stable on his newly purchased lot opposite the Southern depot, and will enter the horse business here. We welcome him to St. George.?Dorchester T Eagle. 8 Mr. C. E. Eaves, of Denmark, is c( holding down cashier's place at the A. C. L. depot, Mr. Shaw having resigned. Mr. Eaves and family are occupying the Stewart house next to M the Methodist church.?Hartsville r( Messenger. b, Mr. D. A. Kinard, who was seri- m ously cut last Saturday night a vr h; ago, is out again and his many ti friends are much gratified. His e< quick recovery was remarkable, as la the wound was nearly eighteen inches u: . long, taking twenty-nine stitches to b< close it. tr Maner Morris, the white man of b; Olar who was lodged in jail some ai time ago charged with the killing ci of young Willie Reed, is still in jail, no effort-for bond having been made ol so far as we can learn. He will no cl doubt be tried at the November term C of court. ^ The fall session of the Bamberg b] graded school will commence on ot Monday morning, September '16th. The school should have the largest ai enrollment in its history, and see ci that your child is there the first day of school so that it may start off with its class. A number of tracts of land were advertised to be sold for taxes last Monday by the sheriff, but only one gs tract was sold, as all the others settled up before the day of sale. The tract sold was that of one-half acre J, in the case of Laura Zeigler. It was 1? bought by E. L. Spann for $23.00. Beginning September 1st positive- S" ly no lamps will be charged when ; bought at The Herald Book Store. We do this under instructions from ^ the superintendent of the plant, as some dissatisfaction arose by parties claiming they had not gotten lamps there. Remember they will not be V |j. charged to anybody, so don't embar- T ? ' rass us by asking that they be charg- . ed. The recent hot, dry weather has S played havoc with the cotton crop. r In some instances the crop was late ^ and the hot, dry weather has cut p the yield short. There will be ? A+Viic roar L no top urup 1U LUIS 6CLUUU Wis j V-"', ^ and we look for the yield to be much * J shorter than the outlook a few weeks v ago, and even then it was not expected that more than a two-thirds crop would be made. If persons would stand in line at o the general delivery window at the d postoffice and not crowd the window $ and not call for mail until their I turn at the window comes, they P > . would get their mail quicker, as the P delivery man can render better ser- J vice if this' rule is followed. Try to follow it. The postmaster and his t clerks want to give good service and o accommodate the public in every way 1 possible, so kindly co-operate with I us. Everybody will be benefitted. $ The county board of commissioners as in session here Monday, but only Dutine business was transacted. > Managers of election will please ~ Ml for the boxes Monday morning, ^ s they will not be ready before that ^ ir me. M There was not a large crowd in >wn last Monday, even though it as the first Monday in the month nd salesday. People are busy gath- t ring their crops. j Thirteen hundred votes were poll- tl d in Bamberg county in the recent rimary, being the largest vote poll- i? d since the county was formed. At h tie Bamberg box 328 votes were n ast, which is the largest number ^ ver cast here. ^ As The Herald goes to press ri Wednesday afternoon we do not know hat action the State executive com- R litte has taken in the matter of the li scent primary. However, several of tie county committees have held tl leetings this week, and it seems P tear that there was wholesale fraud f< nd illegal voting, and it seems to us tl lie only fair thing to do is to* order nother primary in all cases where tl le vote was close. cl m p Kind Words. a li Mr. A. W. Knight, publisher of he Herald, Bamberg, South Corona, has been appointed, by the resident, postmaster of his town. [r. Knight was on a recent visit to Washington in connection with this 0i latter. Bamberg can be assured of a: first-class business administration tl f its postoffice.?Barnhart's Flyer. 0i The above was written by a Wash- h igton friend who has known us in a w usiness way ever since we started tl i business for ourself. y< ir Wilson Campaign Fond. 3,1 The Herald has received from Mr. 7. H. Ritter, of the Olar section, a 01 leek for $3.75 for subscriptions he >llected to the Woodrow Wilson impaign fund, as follows: c . A. Brabham $1.00 lc A. Peters 1.00 V1 A. Folk 25 m J. H.

Rice, who was laid to jst only a few days before, died at er home in Denmark last Friday I torning at four o'clock.

On Thursday afternoon, August 9th, 1912, at the home of the ride's mother at Bamberg, Mr. B. . Crum and Miss Cornelia D. Colelan were married by Rev. W. R. Mc[illan, pastor of the Baptist church. The affair was a very quiet one, nly a few relatives and friends of le contracting parties being present 5 witness the simple, yet solemn and npressive ceremony, which united lese young lives. The bride, although only for the ist two years a resident of Bamberg, as by her amiability and charming lanner, made a host of friends here, ho congratulate the young man on inning so great a prize in the matimonial market. The bridegrom is a resident of :owesville and a young man of sterng worth and fine business ability. The happy young couple left on le afternoon's train for the Isle of alms, where they will sojourn for a jw days before going to Rowesville, leir future home. We deplore the transplanting of lis fair flower to other soil, but we herish fond memories of her bright resence, and waft to the young pair thousand good wishes for a long fe of usefulness and happiness. NETTIE OGILVIE SPEAKS. Telephone Service. The citizens of Bamberg certainly light to appreciate the service they re receiving now at the hands of le-Bell Telephone Company. When ae considers the magnificent service ere now, especially at night, we onder how they ever put up with le service we had here only a few Bars ago. Then it was impossible tost of the time to get anybody over le 'phone after eight or nine o'clock t night, and now call at any hour f the night you please and there is [ways a prompt response on the part f the operator. Our people cerlinly have no kick coming on their cal or long distance telephone serice, and it would be appreciated by iany towns larger than Bamberg. We re certainly up-to-date in this reject, and the other public service eople of the town could profit by le example of the telephone people. ! the writer as postmaster can give le same quality of service as the ilephone exchange he will feel that le people have- no reason to cornlain of their postal facilities. In romptness and courtesy the office ere is a model for all who serve le public. Denmark Town Election. A town election was held in Denlark Monday of this week with the >llowing result: Intendant?G. W. Hightower. Wardens?P. S. Bean, D. N. Cox, . L. Zeigler. There was a tie vote etween J. B. White and S. S. Ray, ad they will run again. Sunday-School Convention. The forty-fifth annual meeting of le Barnwell and Bamberg Sunday:hool convention took place at * ' ?" TTT_J Jn.. nni... laCKVliie on vveuuesua), iuuisua> ad Friday last. R. M. Mixon was ected president, W. G. Britton sectary, and J. A. Hunter treasurer. J. C. Collum, who was appointed ) preach the introductory sermon, sing absent, W. G. Britton was reaested to perform the service which e did from the text, "Ye must be arn again." There were over one hundred delates present from the various :hools, and this with a large numsr of visitors gave Blackville a liver appearance. The meeting was the sst that your correspondent has ter had the privilege to attend. The hole trend of the discussions were f a highly spiritual character, in fact le whole convention had a spiritual tmosphere. The convention was fortunate in scuring the services of F. F. Whilen, of Columbia, who certainly was le life of the whole thing. The hospitality was more than Duld have been expected. I think yerybody who had to return home id so with reluctance. Blackville st a pace that it will be hard to fol)W. Miss Matthews and her choir gave ae "convention excellent music. There is one question that the riter would like to ask and that is, How many male members are there i the Blackville church?" The next convention goes to Bamerg. The banner for best contribution :as won by Olar and the one for best verage attendance by Bamberg. W. G. B. The Cotton Market. Cotton is selling in Bamberg tolay (Wednesday) at 10 13-1( ents the pound. So far 422 bales iave been received. We ask the armers to watch the reports of the irices paid elsewhere and compare hem with Bamberg. You will fine hat this market is equal if not highr than others. Bamberg Graded School. The opening exercises of the Bamberg graded school will be held in the graded school auditorium at 9 o'clock on .Monday morning, September 16th. The public is invited to the opening exercises. Let every parent see to it that every child in his care is present on .Monday for enrollment. This is one dav set aDart esDeciallv for enroll ment and classification, and we should like to enroll every pupil possible on this day. We shall be glad for all pupils who are out of town to return in time to be present on Monday, the opening day. We especially urge those parents who are to have pupils in the first grade to have them to begin at the very first of the session. It will be necessary for all pupils above the first grade to have a card to enter on Monday. Ail pupils who have lost their cards will please call at the school building on Friday morning before the opening and get them. Just a word or two about books. Parents, please see to it that your children do not buy their books before they come to school on Monday, also please see to it that they do not dispose of their old ones. On the opening day each pupil will get a list of the books needed and he can get them and get his lessons for Tuesday. While this may give the book store a rush for the time, I believe it will save the parents some unnecessary expense, for children are liKeiy to buy books which they do not need. Let them bring their old books to school with them on the first day. The following is a list of the names of the teachers with their work: Miss May Zeigler, first grade; Miss Ruth Dibble, second grade; Miss Gertrude Davis, third grade; Miss Ollie Lee Dobson, fourth grade; Miss Irene Bryan, fifth grade; Miss Louise Martin, sixth grade; Mrs. J. A. Murdaugh, seventh grade. In the high school department Miss Hattie Newsom will be assistant principal and teacher of mathematics and science; Miss Kate Roseborough, Latin and history; Miss Leona Thomasson, English and history; E. P. Allen, superintendent and teacher of geometry and physics. All the above teachers have been with us for a number of years except Misses Roseborough, Bryan, and Thomasson. They are teachers of considerable experience, and come to us highly recommended. They no doubt will do excellent work. Shooting at Schofield. Last Saturday about noon a negro named Willie Burroughs shot and seriously wounded Ed. Reese. Both negroes worked for the Saltkeatchie Lumber Co. at Schofield, and it appears that Reese was something of a bully around the mill among tne negroes, rjurrougus is a young negro, only about nineteen years old, while Reese is about thirty years old. The two negroes had a quarrel Friday night, and Saturday at noon Reese went to the house of a negro woman named Lena Robinson whom Burroughs was living with, Burroughs being there at the time. Reese cursed the ^woman and struck her with a piece of wood and on starting away he cursed Burroughs and thereupon Burroughs shot him in the back with a shotgun as he was leaving, a load of buck shot taking effect in his back, cutting his back bone in twain and some coming through the stomach. Reese was carried to the hospital in Savannah, and while he is not dead so far, his condition is critical. Burroughs made his escape immediately after the shooting, but was captured at Ruffins, Colleton county, on Monday and brought to Bamberg and lodered in jail. U. D. C. Meeting. The Francis Marion Bamberg Chapter U. D. C. will hold its regular monthly meeting next Tuesday afternoon, September 10th, at 5 o'clock with Mrs. S. A. Hand.

SMYSER-SAUNDERS WEDDING. Brilliant Social Event in Florence. Many Handsome Presents. ] _______ < The marriage of Miss Janie Sue j Saunders and Dr. John Daniel Smy- j ser, of Baltimore, which took place ' at the home of the bride's parents < on Thursday afternoon, was a most , brilliant event, and one of which ( Florence society may well be proud. ] Although a home wedding, so great ( was the number of guests that the j entire lower floor of the beautiful j family home on South Dargan street was called into requisition. j The solemn ceremony, which was t performed by the Rev. R. T. Gilles- , pie, of the Presbyterian church, took ( place in the drawing room. The i white columns, which - separate this room from the reception room, were j festooned with Southern smilax. In j the bay window a chancel had been . arranged of small white columns, ] towned with hot house smilax and . each surmounted by a white candle . in a silver candlestick. An altar at the rpjir of this was formed of white i ^ - - v~~" I and green decorations, with many . silver candelabra and lighted candies, against a white back ground, the bridal pair standing beneath a double arch, trimmed with hot house smilax. The colors chosen for the gowns of ] the bevy of fair attendants were white and pink. The bride's gown 1 was very lovely and picturesque of ' heavy white satin, with court train of satin brocade, bertha and panels 1 of real lace, and pearls to add to its 1 richness and beauty. Her veil was held in place with a wreath of orange blossoms and she carried a bouquet 1 of white roses and maiden hair ferns. ! The maid of honor wore a charm- 5 ing gown of cream chiffon, embroid- ' ered in pink, over a pink slip. The 1 bridesmaids alternated, one wearing white chiffon over pink and the next 1 chiffon over white, but in all the * white gowns the pink and white col- ' or scheme was carried out. All were made en traipe. # 1 The attendants were: Miss Louise ; Arcnoaia, or -Birmmgnam, Aia., an maid of honor. I -J Dr. F. H. McLeod, best man; Miss Mary Brunson and Mr. McFadden Gregg; Miss Fannie Saunders, of Sumter, with Mr. Thomas Barringer; Miss Alice Pegues, of Darlington, with Mr. Harry Saunders; Miss Virginia Saunders, of Sumter, with Mr. , Percy Brown; Miss Bessie Trippet, i of Boykin, with Mr. Ray Smith, of ( Timmonsville; Miss Annie McCown with Mr. Willie Haynesworth; Miss . Ruth Williamson with Mr. Harllee i Haynesworth, of Columbia; Mrs. ] Grigsby Chandler as brides dame ' with Mr. Chandler as groomsman. The ushers were Dr. Riley, Dr. ( Smith, Mr. Saunders, of Hagood, and : Mr. W. Saunders, of Hagood. After the ceremony Dr. and Mrs. J Smyser left for a bridal trip to Cae- j sar's Head and other mountain re- 1 sorts. The bride's going away gown was a coat of dark blue, brightened with touches of green with hat to correspond. Refreshments were ; cake of various kinds and ices with very delicious punch. The most attractive room in the house after the . ceremony was over, was undoubtedly the one in which the presents were on view. A most charming and j unique feature of the display was a long table, laid in complete readiness for a dinner of twelve persons, upon 1 which was every possible requisite ( in china, silver and glass. All the gifts of the bride's immediate family, the exquisite dinner service of imported white and gold china being the gift of her four brothers, the | silver the gift of uncles and aunts, ] as was also the cut glass. From the ' bride's mother earned massine sil- 1 ver, silver service ana rrom ner iamer a charming house on South Dargan . street where the young couple will reside, also a rich and elegant sealskin coat from Germany. From Dr. Smyser's mother is a very beautiful silver tray, a family heirloom, prized . through many generations, and from his father a comfortable sum of mon- < ey. One of the most valuable and ; unusual of the wedding gifts was a ' pair of minatures, the clever and j beautiful work of Miss Virginia 1 Saunders. These are copies of old ' family portraits of the original Saunders and his wife who settled in this country centuries ago. Much silver and cut glass, hand-painted china, linen, and pictures go to make up the collection of lovely and valuable presents which will beautify the home nest of the lucky young folks. 1 Mrs. Smyser is the daughter of Mr. ' and Mrs. H. S. Saunders, and is a ( young woman of high tone and fine : character and is beloved by many ' friends. Dr. Smyser is a young man of most attractive personality and already, in spite of his youth, a successful specialist in his chosen profession. He ' will locate in Florence where a large practice and ever widening circle of friends is assured him. The most sincere friends of the young couple cannot make them a better wish than that their life together may be as bright always as nrAcnoAte nmmise.?Florence LiiCil piuopwvw ~ Times. Happily Married. Mr. N. P. Smoak and Miss Alice vearse were happily married last Sunday afternoon at the home of :he bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. P. Kearsc, Sr., in the Kearse section, rhe friends who went with Mr. Smoak from here in automobiles tvere: Messrs. J. A. Hunter, B. D. * barter, F. W. Free, and Bissell Beach.

Groseclose, pastor of the Ehrhardt Lutheran church, was the officiating minister. Soon after the ceremony, which occurred at five 3'clock, the bridal party left for , Bamberg in automobiles. The groom is a well known and prominent business man of this city, being mayor of the town and assistant cashier of the Peoples Bank. The bride is well known and has many 4 friends and relatives in Bamberg, * who are all indeed glad to welcome her as a resident. Mr. and Mrs. Smoak are at home to their friends at their residence on Cannon street. Office Will Not Close. Some people in Bamberg were much exercised a few days ago in reference to the recent law requiring postofflces to be closed on Sundays. , A.s we understand this does not apply to^ the Bamberg postoffice, and the mail will be opened as usual on Sundays unless orders are received from the department to close up. Phis is not anticipated, atr we understand the order applies to first and 3econd class offices, and Bamberg is [n the thrid class. However, the eleven o'clock mail will hereafter be opened after church in order to allow the clerks to attend services. That is, the office will be closed from eleven until twelve o'clock every Sunday. i Write for the enterlined collars, they look like linen, need ho washing, price 2 for 25c. Write F. G.
