GAMBLERS LOSE. The Mayor Took a Hand in the Game-Sev eral Sinners Before the Mayor Yesterday. On Friday afternoon, near the water tank on the C.N. & L. road, a little this side of the Mollohon mill, a crowd composed of five negroes and onp white man, became interested in a game of chance. Two of them, John Brown, the tailor, and Milt Smith, both colored, pleaded guilty before Mayor Earhardt yesterday. morning and were given each $10.00 or thirty days. Both paid im mediately. It was brought out in the testimony that there were only 2 of the other four engaged in the game, George Eichelberger and Tobe Brown, colored, being onlookers. Of the other two, Wm. Maybin, colored, had skipped, and the charge remains against him. Lewis - Sample, white, failed to appear, and forfeited his l )nd of $5.00. Charlie Aiken, colored, was given $2.00 or eight days for reckless driving on the streets. One day last week he drove Mr. C. G. Blease's little pony at break-neck speed from the Methodist church to Gilder & Weeks' corner. Ernest Ruff, colored, a drunk and disorderly was given $3.00 or fifteen days, and another drunk and disorderly $2.0' or eight days. JETER GAVE BOND. $?50 Was Put Up for His Appearance at Next Court and He Is Now Out of Jail. W. B. Jeter, held on the charge of breach of trust, was releeged on bond yesterday. The bond, it will be re membered, wes reduced from $1,000, the amount at which it was placed by Judge James Aldrich, to $750. This was done on a motion made by defend ant's counsel, Cole. L. Blease, before Judge R. C. Watts, in Charleston, on on the 24th of February, at which time the case was renm'nded from Charles ton to Newberry for trial. Mr. Jeter's bond wvas signed by sev eral of his friends in this city, who say that Mr. Jeter is innocent of any crime, that while he got the $500 it is alleged * he took, that there are other circum *stances which make the transaction a legitimate one. Mr. Jeter himself, * hen seen yesterday afternoon, said that he 'is ready and anxious andi wait ing for trial. The arrest of Mr. Jeter several weeks ago in this city created a great deal of interest. At the time of the arrest Jeter was in partnership with Mr. Mc Whirter on lower Main street, conduct ' ing a general butcher business under S the firm name of Jeter & McWhirter. The trial of the case here at the next '~.term of court will be looked forward to with considerable interest. At the Opera House. The "Star Boarder'' will be present > ed at the opera house tomorrow night. The management promises the entire original ct'st. There are many high class srecialties, which are introducedi 2'throughout the play, and there is not one dull moment-it is a scream from % the start to the finish. There is a laugh .every minute and the minutes come every sixty seconds. There will be but one performance in Newberry, ~'that at the opera house tomorrow night. .~+ The Greenville News has the follow 1~ring to say of a recent perfor.nance giv Sen by this company in Greenville: ~KThe star boarders of Greenville's many boarding houses were out en masse last night-that is, they were out of their t.>arding houses to be in the Grand opera house, where a noisy listless, rodiring Star Boarder was creat ing a heap of foolish disturbance in three dishes: I 3akfast, dinner and sup per, Charles H. Boyle, for such was the star's name, had no difficulty in making the audience laugh. They gig gled, smiled and roared, not so much by reason of the charm of the dishes, or on account of the fascinating way they were served, but simply because things were kept mov ing and between a lively band, a few catchy choruses, and the star's absurd antics, the au dience was made to forge~t themselves and just enjoy the mess served. T1he upper floors of the theater were jam med, and the attendance was above the average. Millinery I Millinery I *Everything new and striking. The street Hats are ready for dlisplay.

Jim was a good negro-a type of those, now fast passing awvay, who have the affection and regard of the whites, their former masters; of those who were happy and contented in the (lays of slavery; who wvere faithful to a great trust for four years while their masters were away from home on the field of battle. A few more years andl they will all be gone, andl nowhere will the widle chasm between the races be bridged. Give It a Trial.

He was an offi cial member of Trinity church for a long number of years. Mr. Senn owned a small farm and a public shop at his place. He did a general repair work, as well as doing some new work. He made the best grain cradles and plow stocks known in his day. His educa tion was limited, but he was a man of fine sense, truthful and honest in all his dealings with his fellow man. His first wife was Dolly Cleland, a sisterof C. S. Cleland, by whom he had five boys and three girls, who reached maturity, viz: J. Gilliam, Charles W., Dr. W. D., J. Reason and Kemper D., all good and true men; also Mrs. W. P. Johnson, Mrs. L. C. Johnson and Mrs. James Spear. Late in life Mr. Senn married Mrs. Clem Johnson and a happy couple they were. Mr. Senn lived to be nearly ninety years old and quietly passed away loved and honored by all who knew him. What has become of all the older. people who lived on the Belfast road in the '60s? All have gone except Mrs. Dr.Tom Boozer and Mrs. A. J. Lng shore. Only a few short years and they will be gone to their long home. X. Confed. Itching Piles.
