a The Little Son of Mr. Graves J. Jones Ac
cidentally Kills Himself with a
PPrlor Rifle.
A terrible accident occurred in New
I Brooklyn, the western part of the city,
I Tuesday evening ebout 6 o'clock.
I The ten year old son of 'Mr. Graves
3 J. Jones, was at a neighbor's house,
) and he with one or two other boys were
r playing with a parlor rifle.
The boy for some reason put the
muzzle of the gun in his mouth, we
suppose not knowing it was loaded, and
i for the purpose of breaking the breech,
when it fired. The ball went through
his mouth and it is supposed lodged in
i his brain. He did not live five minutes
after the accident happened.
The boy was about ten years of age,
I his name was Olin, and he was a hand
some, bright looking boy.
The accident is indeed a deplorable
one, and Mr. Jones has the sympathy
of the community in the loss of his dear
The City Council Makes a Much Needed
The city council has received the
name plates for the different streets of
the city and the street overseer has
been busy for the past few days tack
ing them on,the corners of ?he respec
tive streets. They are neat plates made
of tin with the names in bold black
letters, and this action on the part of
the city authorities will prove a great
improvement to the city.
We would like to see the houses num
bered next, and then the question of
free mail delivery agitated. Cities as
small as Newberry in this State al
ready have free mail delivery, and why
not Newberry?
The Election of Mr, Peadea M.- L. Wicker
to be Contested.
Messrs. D. A. Ruff and D. W. Wicker
have 'given notice in no uncertain tone
that the election of Peadea M. L.
Wicker, which was held and decided on
the 4th instant, by the citizens of their
community, will be contested to the
last. The grounds of contest will be
that Messrs. Ruff and D. W. Wicker
at the time the election was held had
not finished gathering their peas, and
that proof will be brought going to
show that their yield was greater than
that of Mr. M. L. Wicker. The con
test will prove interesting, as Mr. M.
L. Wicker will contend that he is' en
titled to the honor, as the citizens have
spoken, of being the champion pea
The outcome will be watched with
much interest.

This morning at the Good Shepherd
church Miss Ella Viola Adams, of this
city, and Mr. Waller Brown, of New
berry, were married in the presence of
a number of friends. The bride is a
daughter or Mr. and Mrs. W. W. Ad
a, and Is a charming young lady, hav
ing many friends who will wish her
much happiness. The groom is well
known here, having been connected
with the..Virginia Life Insurance Com
pany for several years. Since then he
has been promoted and is now manager
of the Newberry offce. .
The couple lef6 for Newberry imme
diately after the ceremony.-Columbia
Record, 17th.
On arrival in 'Newberry the happy
bride and groom were tendered a hand
some reception at the hospitable home
of Dr. T. W. Smith, on Boundary
street, which was attended by a few
invited gtests.
Mr. Brown has been in this city for
the past few months in the insurance
busines.1 and has many strong friends
here who join in hearty congratula
tions and best wishes for him and his.
Mr. and Mrs. Brown have rooms at
Dr. T. W. Smith's.
One Struck With a Brick, the Other Shot
at But Missed.
Tuesday evening about 7:30 o'clork
the lower end of Main street w as thrown
into a state of excitement by the ring
ing out of I pistol shot on the street.
Jim Graham had gone into Dan
Brown's place of abode---one of the
joints in that part of the city-and pro
ceeded in some way to molest Dan, who
was serenely resting in his solitary
quietness so continuously noticeable in
one or two negro joints on that side of
Main street, and when Dan requested
Jim to leave, so Dan's story goes, he
refused. Dan then by main i'orcey
ejected him, with as little effort as was
possible, but on reaching the sidewalk
Graham secured a brick and threw at
Brown striking him on the head, mak
ing a scalp wound. Dan returned the
blow with a shot from his pistol, as
Graham took leg bail. We suppose
Graham is still running, as he has not
since been heard from.
Dr. Van Smith, with the assistance
of Dr. W. F. Eberhardt, whose smiling
countenance always brings joy and
gladness even to a miserable reporter's
heart, much less bring-too a dead ne
gro, fixed up Dan's wounds and he
went his way rejoicing until Mayor
Klettner passes the final sentence.
