"Equal rights to all and special privileges to none." Let us have this rule applied in Bamberg. The United Daughters of the Confederacy will meet next Tuesday afternoon at 4.30 o'clock with Mrs. J. D. Felder. The tract of land sold at public auction here last Monday by the judge of probate was bid in by R. C. Hard. . wick as attorney for $951.00. This was the only public sale. Mr. W. S. Mi ley arrived in the city last Saturday and at once assumed his duties as chief of police. That he will do his duty without fear or favor all who know him are assured. Bricks are being placed on the ground preparatory to the erection of the new dormitory at Carlisle School. It is hoped to have the building completed in time for the opening of the school this fall.

Mayfield will deliver an address. The dispensary petitions circulated in this county, asking for an election on the dispensary question, have been turned over to the county supervisor, who will check over the names. We learn that there are between six hundred and seven hundred names on the various petitions. We have received a news item in a letted postmarked at Cope, but as no name was signed we cannot use it. We require the name of the writer of aiiv kind v> UCU, au; V.vmii.iu^4vv?v. ? is sent to us. We will not publish the name unless the writer so desires, but we must know the name of the author. We received this week a communication from the St. Johns section with no name signed. We regret that we cannot publish it, but we must know the name of the writer in every case. If our kind friend will give us their real name we will be glad to print whatever they may send us in future. Ssr * The date of the closing of The Herald's piano contest has been fixed for Saturday, June 21st. The con-j test will certainly close on this date, so the contestants had best get busy and keep busy until the close. There will be no other counts until the final count, and no one will know how any contestant stands until the close. - In accordance with notice heretofore given, a meeting of the taxpayers of Bamberg school district was held in the town hall Monday afternoon at four o'clock. Mr. D. F. Hooton was unanimously elected to succeed himself as a trustee of the school, and the levy was fixed the same as last year, nine mills, without n ^ it>fon tin cr xrntc CL UXOO^uviu^ T vbv. The postmaster at Bamberg has, at his own expense, placed a large waste basket in the lobby of the post office. It is there for patrons to use, and into it should be put all waste paper of every kind. Kindly do not throw papers all over the floor any more, as the basket is plenty large enough and you can't miss it. Help > the office force to keep the office as clean as possible. The New York trip of the editors has been abandoned because not enough people signified their intention of taking the trip. Only about sixty people applied for reservations and sent in checks, and eighty was the minimum. We regret that the trip was abandoned, as a number of our friends had applied for reservations. Checks will be returned to those who sent them in. Mr. C. H. Mitchell, assistant at the passenger depot, was carried to Chari leston on the afternoon train last Sunday afternoon for an operation for appendicitis. The operation was performed the same night, and he is > getting along nicely. Dr. H. J. Stuckev and Mr. C. J. Curry accompanied Mr. Mitchell to Charleston. His many friends hope that he will soon be back home sound and well. Election Will be Held. N It is certain that an election on the dispensary question will be ordered by the supervisor of this county, as he informs us that he has checked the names on the various petitions and finds that there are enough signatures of voters to make the election mandatory, therefore he will order that the election be held in August as provided by law. The official notice of the election will be published later. . . . ?? : You W^l Have to Hustle to Win the Piano. No use to shout about the virtue of the piano or other prizes. All have become familiar with them. Now is the time for steady determined effort, the kind that wears and tears and makes character in the doing. Everyone of these contestants who have been working for the prize will be the better for the effort even though there is only one piano and only one who can get it. Who is to be the one? That is to be the momentous question. Do they at times see a vision of the dray stopping at their door, the men unload, tramping into the house with the beautiful instrument, the reward of their prowess and endeavor? How ; much interest did y^u take in such j a dream? Have you not dreams of your own? And how would you feel to have them realized? Don't you think you would have very much the same feeling could you in some way assist or have assisted in the realization of some such laudable ambition? Try it and see. Put forth the effort. Bear in mind some of the contestants whom you would like to see a winner and then go out and work. Every time you spend a dollar put it some place where you can get a vote coupon and then turn it over to your chosen candidate. You won't be the only one doing this, and how do you know but what your little help will turn the trick I and put the prize wl^ere you want it? You people who get out of yourselves once in a while and do something for somebody else, are beginning to learn the true secret of a happy life, and once you get in the way you will keep it up forever?you will speedily see that the ujillenium is no fickle dream but a blessed reality, to be brought about by just simple means. If when you do a kind act you [ should fatally wait for the gratitude you might therefore miss the op-^ l portunity of doing another, and failing to get what you have foolishly desired, lose all the joy of life, or having got it, lose the other chancei of being satisfied. Best keep on | trying them; what is done for others you have done twice for yourself, for what is your end and object than happiness, which never follows greed? A piano is never a foolish posses sion. When one*,can play it all within reach of it's sweet sound are benefitted thereby. The bonus is from now on as follows: For every ? new subscriptions 8,000 bonus, a total of 12,200 votes. For every 7 renewal subscriptions 6,000 bonus, a total of 9,500 votes.

E. Jordan 150 1,825 Change at Postoffice. Mr. James Armstrong is now employed at the post office here, his position being that of general delivery clerk. Mr. Armstrong succeeds Mr. Laurie C. Smoak, who resigned his position in order to take a course at a business college, and he will leave this week for Columbia to enter upon the course. The postmaster regretted to lose Mr. Smoak, as he has made k most competent, accomo dating and courteous clerk, and the patrons of the office have been much pleased at the accommodating manner in which he discharged his duties. While it is a source of regret - - J -i.'ll tJjat ne nas resigneu, sua wc itrci that Mr. Armstrong, as soon as he can become familiar with the duties of the position, will fill the place to the entire satisfaction of all concerned. Meeting Board of Control. The annual meeting of the board of control of the Carlisle School was held Monday of this week, Chairman M. L. Banks presiding. The report of Headmaster Guilds for the past year was the best in the history of the school. There was a larger number of boarding pupils than ever before, and the financial as well as the general reports of the year's work were most satisfactory. This should be especially gratifying to the citizens of Bamberg in view of the-cam- 1 j ?.u;.u I paign lor a new uorumuij wmtu ima progressed to the point where the new building is assured. Messrs. H. C. Folk, W. D. Rhoad, and J. C. Guilds were appointed as a building committee for the new 1 domitor/. Mr. H. J. Brabham was elected as a member of the board to succeed Dr. Geo. F. Hair, who resigned. Mrs. J. J. Beach and- Mrs. Stella Bronson were re-elected matrons of the boarding halls. There were two vacancies in the ' I faculty, Messrs. H. B. Anderson and ' R. L. Meriwether declining re-elec- ] tion. Mr Meriwether will take a 1 post graduate course at Vanderbilt * I University, and Mr. Anderson will ' 7 i study medicine. Mr. S. A.. Merchant, formerly of 1 Branchville, but now of Spartanburg, 5 was elected as a member of the facul- 1 ty. He will teach history. Mr. Mer- * chant is a graduate of Wofford col- ^ lege. Mr. G. H. Edwards will teach Latin 1 next year. He is from Darlington, ' and is a graduate of the University * of South Carolina with the degrees of A. B. and M. A. The school is moving forward and * upward, and with faith that the coming year will be a still greater success, the trustees and the faculty ( look forward to the work with hope J AP AAiircn Mr T P. 2.HQ.

Guilds will remain as Headmaster. l Xew Telephone Line. 1 A farmers' telephone line having three subscribers has recently been connected with the exchange of the Southern Bell Telephone Company at ( Bamberg. Those who are connected on this line are: J. W. Hill, J. J. O'Neal, W. H. Priester. They are well pdeased with the service, and the indications are that a j number of others will be added short- , ly. The construction of this line and its connection with the telephone ex- ^ change here is another step in progress of telephone development which is being made by the residents in the rural sections of Bamberg county. Xew Directory. ' i The new directory of the Southern < Bell Telephone Company has been ' delivered to the subscribers in Bam- ] berg by Manager R. N. Pfaff. ] The new directory is attractive in 1 appearance and contains all the changes and corrections in listings 1 since the last directory was printed. < The number of new names ap- j pearing in the list would indicate ] that there are constant additions to i the number of subscribers in Bam- 1 berg and vicinity and the telephone < development is continuous. ] Fire Saturday Xight. ! The alarm of fire was sounded last . Saturday about 11:30 o'clock, ana it < was found that the residence of Mr. J. W. Jennings, on Bridge street, was . | on fire. Mrs. Jennings came on the j | back piazza and noticed the smoke, < I the flames having caught up in the ; ! wall in the kitchen. A crowd soon gathered and the fire was put out : before much damage was done. The fire was evidently the work of rats. A Great Game. ; Last Friday afternoon the Fats J and Leans played a remarkable game , of base ball at Rhoad's Park. Each team used seven pitchers. Denbow, who was tooted as a South paw and an extraordinary spit ball heaver, , proved a total failure, in fact he was knocked out of the box in the first , inning. Col. Folk was out of form, ' in fact every pitcher was lammed un- ' mercifully. Kay Brabham caught the only fly that was taken in during the . game. The fielders made heroic ef- . forts to catch the numerous flies, , but their efforts were in vain. Judge . Miley managed to make several runs, to the surprise of the fans. Klauber made a home run?he was so swift , that he passed the runner that was c-n first, in fact made the home plate before Denbow got to second. The game was so strenuous that it took ( thirty-five players to play five "innings. The score was: Fats 6, Leans 13. SENATE CONFIRMS COLCOCK. Filibuster Over Collectorship at Port of Beaufort Ended.

Bowen, Jr., P. B. McLeod, Willie Foxworth. Presiding Elder M. L. Banks made the announcements for the board of :ontrol, in which he related the pro Sress ui iiitj wuxiv uu tuc new ummitory, and stated that Headmaster Gruilds and Mr. W. C. Duncan had been re-elected, with Messrs. Merchants and Edwards as the other two members of the faculty, the instructor in music and the primary teacher having not yet been selected. He also read a resolution of thanks passed by the board of control, thanking Mr. W. D. Rhoad for his splendid gift of an athletic field, and also to those citizens of Bamberg who had so generously contributed to the building fund of the new dormitory. The graduating class this year numbered twelve, nine young men and three young ladies, as follows: A.gnes Pauline Connor, Alice Isabel Edwards, John Weissinger Folk, Elinoi; Lillias McCants, Louis James McConnell, Hampton Aiden Mitchum, William Duncan Rhoad, Jr., Edward Laules Smith, Charles Ryan Staley, Lewis Bellinger Stabler, Marvin Meadors Stabler, Jarvis Earl rhompson. In presenting certificates to these Foung people Headmaster Guilds made a short but most impressive address, stressing the fact that it was essentially the work of Carlisle uot only to educate and train the mind but to develop strong Christian characters in the young people who came within the influence of the institution. How well the school succeeds in its great work ample testimony is borne in the lives of those who go out from old Carlisle. The address of Dr. Duncan was indeed appropriate. Taking as his subect education and citizenship, he delighted the large and most attentive audience. His position in regard to compulsory education was most heartily applauded, and he stated that we were almost ready for it. Thus closed a most successful year at Carlisle, in fact the most success ful, from every standpoint, in the history of the school. That it will go forward to greater things those of us who know the consecrated head and his assistants are assured, and it will be a greater blessing to this section of the State.
