HOMB PROM THB PHILIPPINES.
Sergeant Vance G. Pearsoll Who Wa s Promoted From the Ranks Talks In terestingly of Affairs in the OrIent. Sergeant Vance G. Pearsoll, who has been in the United States Army for the past two years, the latter fourteen months of which time was spent in the Philippine Islands, returned home this week. Sergeant Pearsoll was a member of Co. B., First Regiment S. C. V., in the Spanish-American war. This company was composed almost - exclusively of Newberry boys and was commanded by Capt. W. S. Langford. When the Spanish-American war was over Ser geant Pearsoll returned to Newberry. Six months later he enlisted in Troop B., 11th Cavalry, U. S. A., and a few months after went with his command to the Philippines. He was first stationed in the island of Samar and was in that place when General '!Hell Roaring Jake Smith," as he is commonly known, issued his infamous order to kill and burn. Ser geant Pearsoll says that the order was carried out by the soldiers until it was revoked, and they were glad when it was. From Samar he was transferred to Manila, and from Manila about 150 miles to the interior. He was engaged in sev eral skirmishes and was promoted from troop blacksmith to Sergeant, which position he hold when honorably dis charged on the 13th of October last. When asked about the condition of the islands at present he said that the natives were thoroughly conquered, but are sullen and restless, and will always give trouble. He said he "wouldn't give three cents" for the whole group of islands as they now are, because he doesn't believe the Filipinos will ever be subject to any government save one of force. Sergeant Pearsoll was asked about the water cure, which it is charged was given the Filipinos in order to make them divulge secrets. He said he had seen it given, and it generally had the desired result. Water was poured in to the subject until he could stand no more and then it was pressed out, and if the secret didn't come with it the dose was given again. Sergeant Pearsoll will engage in business in Newberry with Mr. E. H. Leslie. His twin brother is still in the service in the Philippines. Return Your Property. The 20tn of this month is the last day for returning property for the purposes of taxation. After that (late a penalty of fifty per cent. will be added. Audi tor Cromer says the returns have not been as slow as they were last year, but there are a good many which have not yet come in. Will Manage the Plant. Mr. Roland G. Spearman, who is now with the Bell Telephone Company, ar rived in the city yesterday. He will look after the rebuilding of the tele phone plant in this city, active work on which he says will begin in about forty days.

A ~ordial invitation is extended to all to *show their interest in the college by attending these services. - Street Duty. The city authorities have sent out the atreet duty notices for the year. The tax is due by March 1st. Some persons are wondering why they receivedl such -notices, as they have heretofore been exempt. Each administration usually' mrakes out its own lists, and some par ties may be exempt one year and iiable Athe next, and we undlerstandl that this 'dministr'ation~ will require certificates ~(f exemption, or satisfactory proof of ~;uch exemption before exempting any 'rom paying the street tax. Rally Day. Next Sunday will be Rally D)ay at the Central M. E. church, South. ~very member of this churc-h is earn *0tly requessed to be present. Visitors ~e always welcome. S. H. Zimmerman, Pastor.

Mr. Ernest Shealy and bride stopped over with his brother, Mr. Sidney Shea ly and family, here last week for a few hours while on their way home from a visit to her mother at Jalapa. We have had a chance of rain for the p)ast wveek or so and the roads are in a rough condition.

Shealy and family spent Saturday with his father's family at Little Mountain. Sunday afternoon we attended ser vice at Mr. Pilgrim church. and heard a good able sermon preached by the p)astor, Rev. P. IL. E. Derrick. What has become of our friend T. J. W.? Come out from your quarters, old boy, and give us the news from your section. Mr. Editor, we agree with you in your editorial last week as to better roads. We have never seen the roads in a worse condition than at present. If our legislators would travel over the roads now they would at once do some thing to give us bette r roads. Mr. L. C.

With the amount of cotton seedI sold at Prosperity since the first of last September, who would say that a cot ton seed oil mill wouldn't be a paying investment for Prosperity?

In his death the county and State have lots a good useful man. It was always a p)leasure to meet him andl have a talk and hand shake. The service here Sunday afternoon was well attended. The grain is all looking well for the time of year. Sio-ma. THE FIRE DEPARTMENT. Well Equipped and Ready for Emergen.. cles.--Actual Tests Which Have Been Made. Newberry now has as good and] as well equipped fire department as can be found in any city her size in the South. The building which was completed several weeks ago is modern and com plete in every particular. On the first floor are kept the hose wagon and the horses. Upstairs is a room set apart for the use of the members of the com pany, and there are two small rooms in the rear for the use of the driver and those on duty. These are connect ed by a brass pole with the downstairs. Notwithstanding the fact that the horses have been in use for only a few weeks they are well trained and know exactly what is re quired of them. On an actual test, with the doors closed and the horses in their stalls, the building has been clear ed in thirty seconds after the alarm was turned in. Of this time only twelve seconds was required to harness the horses and put them to the wagon. That is almost as quick time as it - seems possible to ' make, but the drivers say that in a few more weeks they are going to cut it down considerably. Joe, the largest one of the horses, who was sick last week, is all right a"ain and is taking as much pleasure in iis duties as ever. Both horses are beautiful ones, well matched in every way, and are easily handled. The members of the company have become very much attached to them, and accord them full privileges of mem bership in the company. Each mein ber takes a personal pride in their beauty and great strength, and if a person has anything against them which he wants to say, it would be advisable for him not to put his thoughts into words if there is an Excelsior within hearing. This is as it should be. For a long time Newberry has not paid enough attention to her fire department. The department, however, has always been prompt, and its work in almost every instance has proved effective. Within the past ten years there have been very few losses by fire in this city where it was at all possible for any company to prevent. The equipment of the department at present is one in which the members of the company may and do take pride. Encouraged and supported by the citizens, their work will be such that the fire insur ance companies may fear little in this direction. Dots from New Chapel. Colds! bad colds!! is the prevr iling epidemie. Mrs. Pressley Cannon has been quite sick for the past two weeks. Mrs. Press Livingston and wife spent Thursday with her father's family.

Mr David Mott Wells, of Pennsyl vania, and Miss Sara Lane, of this city, were married in the Central Methodist church yesterday at high noon. The church was beautiful with deco rations of palms, ferns, and cut flowers. The pulpit was artistically draped with white silk and the chancel was entwined with asparagus' ferns. On the right and drooping over the pulpit was a beautiful orange tree. The color scheme, green and white predominating, was well carried out, and the church pre sented a very pretty appearance. Mrs. C. B. Martin presided at the organ, and as the first note of the wed ding march pealed forth the ushers, Messrs. John A. Eddy and Wilbur Huiett, advanced down either aisle to the altar. Immediately following from the western entrance came the bride, attended by her maid of honor, Miss Dessie Shackleford, and from the oppo site side the groom with his brother, Mr. Frank Wells, of Atlanta. The impressive ceremony was per formed by Rev. S. H1. Zimmerman. The ring was used. The bride was attired in a stylish and becoming traveling suit of castor, and carried a magnificent bunch of white carnations. Miss Shackleford carried pink carna tions. Mr. and Mrs. Wells immediately after the ceremony left for Atlanta, after which they will be at home to their many friends in New berry. "Just Splendid."
