County and Elsewhere.
Ehrhardt Etchings.
Ehrhardt, June 2.?Warm weather
has come, and the youngsters can
truly sing "Good Old Summer Time."
Sunday night in the Baptist church
the pastors in town held a union
mpptine Snhieot : Christian Edu
cation.
Schools have been going on for a
t long period. Can you, Mr. Editor,
date the first school recorded in ;
ancient history?
The thermometer registered 94%
Friday, only % degree lower than
last summer.
Town election will be held on the ]
3rd instant. It is of more import- '
ance to get good men on the council 1
> than most of us think. The management
of a town is of more import
ance to us all than one imagines, and i
good men should be selected for <
mayor and wardens. All of us should 1
give them our aid in their unpleasant
wrork, and not do, as so many of 1
them do, curse and abuse them when '
doing their duty. 1
Mr. J. D. Dannelly has purchased
a late model Buick car. He is learn- <
ing to steer it along our sandy roads. <
Cotton crops in this section are
very backward and unnatural look- (
> ing. 1
A nice shower this morning makes <
crops, etc., look like it will grow. 3
These tight times makes some of 1
our citizens very close fisted. Don't 1
want to do anything to benefit his 3
fellow man. All for self. When your -
neighbors don't want to do anything I '
only for self and self alone, he is no i
good. Had better be dead. (
All general merchandise stores <
now close at six o'clock in the after.
noon, except Saturdays.
Closing of Hunter's Chapel Graded ]
^ School. <
(
\ One Of the most successful year's
work for the Hunter's Chapel school ^
came to a close Friday, May 30th. Under
the teaching and supervision ,
Jp of the principal, Prof. Norman H. ^
Fender, the pupils had a most pleasant
and profitable year. I
Prof. Fender is indeed to be con
gratulated upon the noble work he <
has done for the school and in being ^
able to please so unanimously the j
trustees and patrons, since he was ,
laboring with and among his own ,
people. Not one complaint has been (
heard from all the patrons against
? his teaching or discipline and that ^
is noteworthy, since he taught ten ]
x grades and from forty to fifty pupils.
This number shows also that the ]
school is in the line of progress.
Just recently tbere nas oeen an ex- .
, tra levy tax voted for the school of
two additional mills, making three ]
mills with the one already passed, i
> and it is likely that another will be
put on so that the school will get ,
$200.00 from the State. (
A handsome and commodious new
building will soon be erected in a ;
more central location, and more <
teachers employed. The people of ]
Hunter's Chapel are interested, and
they are folks who do things when ]
they say they will. ]
The patrons and trustees showed j
their interest at the closing of the ]
school by meeting on the school <
grounds in the afternoon to serve ice j
cream and cake, both of which were
very pleasing to the appetite and re- \

'yiere were a number of older j
people present, some of whom had
never been in the school building, <
and who expressed themselves as
having had a delightful afternoon.
Many were asking the principal to return
and resume the work next year. <
After the refreshments were serv- <
ed all were invited into the school <
building to witness the presentation ]
of prizes. ]
Lena Rhoad was given a prize for <
excellency in spelling in the second j
grade. Katherine Rhoad received i
the prize in the fourth grade for best <
work in spelling. Marie Steedly,
who had been present every day dur- ,
ing the year and had not missed a ]
word in spelling, also was given a
prize. <
After the presentation of prizes <
all returned home, seemingly repaid
for having gone. ONE PRESENT. ,

CONFESSES MANY MURDERS.
Frank Diamond Says He Killed Gov.
Maegher, of Montana.
Missoula, Mont., May 29.?A series
of murders, including the assassinattion
of Gen Thomas Francis Maegher,
a Governor of Montana Territory,
were claimed as his own misdeeds
in a confession made by a man
known as Pat Miller, who gave his
correct name as Frank Diamond, at
the town of Plains on Tuesday, according
to information made public
to-day. Diamond was brought here
to-night and lodged in the county
jail.
Diamond's confession was- made
and signed in the presence of three
niti^onc r?f Plains Hp W!IA ill from
the effects of a spree and believed
that he was dying.
He pledged his witnesses to silence
until he had died. The confession,
however, fell into the hands of a local
newspaper to-day and Miller was arrested.
Of the murder of Gen. Maegher, the
confession reads: "I killed him on a
steamboat at Cow Island in the Missouri
and threw him in the river. I
swam lashore."
For that crime Diamond claimed
to have received $8,000 from Montana
vigilantes.
Other murders assumed by him
were two he claimed to have com- mitted
near the Dalles in 1874 and
that of George Mitchell, killed in |
Oregon in 1883. For one of the j
former murders. Diamond said a notorious
Montana-desperado called "Big
Nose George" was hanged. Diamond
is 67 years old.
Gen Maegher was one of the important
figures of Montana's early
history. He served with distinction
in the Union army in the civil war. In
* 1 1 m
18bo ne was appomieu uy vjcu uiam
on a mission to Montana. Later he
became acting Governor of the territory.
,
He made a trip from Helena to
Fort Benton late in 1865 and while
there visited Capt John T. Doran, of
the steamboat "George A. Thompson."
After retiring on the boat
Maegher was heard to rise from his
berth. A few moments later an outcry
brought all on deck. A splash
in the water indicated that Gen. Maegher
had fallen overboard.
Although search of the Missouri
was made for months his body was
never found.
St. Johns News.
St. Johns, June 2.?We are having
some hot and dry weather now. A
little shower of rain would make
everything liven up again.
Mrs. W. P. Ray, from Tampa, Fla.,
came home to visit her parents last
week, who are Mr. and Mrs. J. C. |
Folk.
Mr. LeRoy Peters, who nas Deen j
attending Furman University, came
home last week to spend his vacation.
We are glad to have him back in Sunday-school
with us again.
I am glad to say our Sunday-school
is improving, or at least I hope so
anyway. We had a large crowd last
Sunday. Children, don't forget about
Sunday-school.
Rev. E. A. McDowell preached a
fine sermon at St. Johns last Sunday,
his text being found in the fifth chapter,
seventeenth verse, in the book of
James. This was the text: "Elias
was a man subject to like passions as
we are, and he prayed earnestly that
it might not rain; and it rained not
on the earth by the space of three
years and six months."
Miss Idell Peters had as ner guesi

bountiful dinner was spread at one

by everyone. They sure had the fish
and plenty of ice and tea all the afternoon.
Wish those things would
happen oftener than they do. It will
soon be time for another one, won't
it, Mr. Hiers?
We are sorry to know Mrs. M. A.
Kinard is so ill now. Hope she will
soon be uj) again.

J.J. JONES IN ORANGEBURG

REACHED THAT CITY LAST MONDAY
NIGHT.
On Account of His Rapidly Failing by
St*
Health He Has Been Transat
ferred to County Farm.
~r dis
John J. Jones, the Branchville at- bu
torney, who was convicted in this
city several years ago for the killing
of Abe Pearlstine, and who has ^Q]
served 8 months of his sentence of ^
ten years and thirty days, was pQ
brought to this city last night, and .
will be taken to the county farm t
just South of this city. Thus another
chanter in this Ions: drawn out case,
w i yjt
which has been taken before the supreme
court on several different
points, is being written.
Jones through his attorneys had
his case: taken up on appeal and seall
cured a new trial, during which time an
he remained in jail here and at the ^
State prison in Columbia. ^Something wi
like two years elapsed during this
fight before Jones was at last forced
to begin upon his term of service as
a State convict.- He has now been di.
in the State prison for eight months
during which time he has been placed ^
at such work as he was able to perform.
a 1
- During the time that he has been
confined at the State prison, Jones' ^
health began to fail, and it is due
to this fact that he has been brought Fa
back to this county. It is stated that
Jones is suffering from tuberculosis,
in an advanced stage, and that to
keep him confined at the State prison de
would have been but a matter of se<
time, before he would be a complete Hf
physical wreck. fin
In view of this fact an effort was
made to have him brought to this Mi
county and placed upon the county th<
farm. The County Supervisors being cu
willing to this plan, signed a request to
for his transfer to this county, and mi
last night in company with Super- th<
visor Bolen, he was brought to this of
city. Co
Arrangements were made today to be
take Jones to the county farm. Here
he will be put at such work as he is S
able to perform, but will be kept in
the open air as much as possible.
Jones was at the Hutto boarding
house today, and was this afternoon
taken to the county farm. When seen
this morning, he appeared to be in to<
the best of spirits, and seemed very Isi
grateful to his friends for the ac- Fe
tion which they had taken in his be- *<r<

New York, May 31.?Charles Hubbard,
a prize-fighter known as "Jumbo"
Wells, is dying at the New York

"Expenditure of $3,000,000,000 by
