day evening in honor of her guest
Miss Culler, of Orangeburg.
The last meeting of the campaigi
in this county will be held in Bam
berg on Friday, August 21.
It is just thirteen days until th<
Democratic primary. As the tim<
draws nearer, the more' interesting
the campaign waxes.
The many friend6 of Mrs. Henrj
W. Beard, who has been seriously il
for ten weeks, will be glad to kno*
that she has recovered.
The whistle of the Farmers Gii
company was heard yesterday for th<
A?. thic season. The ginnerj
U1DI Uuiv w??w ~? _
is now ready to begin operations.
The new cottage being erected bj
Mr. J. J. Smoak is nearing completion.
The dwelling is costing about
$3,000, and when completed will be
quite an addition to the street and
town.
Clarence" McMillan favored The
Herald office with another exceptionally
fine watermelon the other day.
It was one of the largest we have
seen this season?and it was as good
as it was large.
The Cotton Oil pompany has recently
added four new gins to its
jginniiyg equipment. The company
now has a twelve-stand ginning system.
which is one of the largest in
this section.
Bamberg county sold $8,208.47
worth of whiskey during the month
of July, according to the monthly
statement published in The Herald
today. The operating expenses
amounted to $473.97.
The many friends of Judge T. S.
Weeks, who formerly lived here, will
be pained to learn that he died the
first of May of heart failure at Campfield,
a small town in Georgetown
county, this State. A letter has just
been received here giving the above
news.
Mr. C. F. Rizer, of Olar, attended

One of the hardest rains of the season
fell Friday. A noticeable feature
of the downfall was that the rain
fell in a torrent for perhaps a minute
in the upper part of Main street
while none fell in the lower part.
The drain pipes were taxed to the
utmost to carry off the water.
A small building on Railroad avenue
belonging to Mr. G. H. Smoak,
and occupied by Jim Grant, colored,
. as a market caught on fire early
m . Monday morning and was burned
down. A large crowd congregated
as a consequence of the usual disa'
charge of firearms on such occasions.
The city water system has been
cut off for several days on account
of the work being done on the reservoir.
A shed is being erected over
the reservoir, and it is being cleaned
out. This is a considerable improvement
for the citv water system, and
will no doubt be appreciated by the
users of this water.

We suggest that our readers preserve
this copy of The Herald containing
the complete roll of Democratic
voters for Bamberg county, for
future reference. There is a. great
expenditure of both space and money
required to publish the full list,
and it may may not be published
' again for many years.
Sunday night the store of Mr. C. F.
Rizer at Olar was broken into and a
quantity of goods stolen. The miscreant
entered through the fronl
door, the glass being broken. A small
amount of cash was stolen from th<
money drawers. It is not knowr
what amount of goods was stolen
Vuit a nnmhpr nf articles are missine
So far the thief has not been apprehended.
Many farmers are now picking cotton.
The ginneries will begin operations
in a few days, and the bus>
season will again be on. The first
bale of cotton i6 eagerly awaited in
the city. The coming of the firs)
bale of new cotton is always attendee
with interest, as it marks the end ol
the dull summer season. However
/ Bamberg has not been near so dul
this summer as many places, a good
business having been conducted since
the spring. The merchants feel verj
nnHmistie over the outlook for a fall
and winter business, and even th
war has not greatly swayed that optimism.

The ginneries of the county are
, preparing to do a big business this
[ season. The ginning season is opening

company, which succeeds the old oil z
mill at Denmark, recently purchased \
by Mr. G. Move Dickinson and others, \
