Meeting To Be Held On July 13-PrOm11
nent Speakers Have Been Invit
ed To Be Present.
The Good Roads Association for New
berry County will meet in the court
house on Monday, the 18th day of July.
The meeting will be called to order, by
President Schumpert promptly at ten
An invitation has been extended to
President F. H. Hyatt, of Columbia, of
the State Good Roads Association; Sen
ator A. C. Latimer, and Congresman
Wyatt Aiken to be present and to ad
dress the Association upoq good roads
topics. It is probable that these gentle
men will accept and will be present.
They are earnest advocates of better
roads and they have practical plans to
propose for a solution of the question.
The approaching meeting will be a
very important one in many respects.
It is the first meeting of the Association
after the organization, and much de
pends upon the showing which will be
made. In this issue of The Herald and
News is printed the third call for town
ship conventions for purpose of organ
izing township associations. The meet
ing of the County Association is nearly
a month hence, giving plenty of time
for the township vice-presidents to or
ganize their townships and to get every
thing in readiness for the meeting.
This is a matter which no doubt they
will attend to in the next few days.
By the time of the meeting the good
roads machinery which was recently
purchased by the County Board will
have been put in operation, and it will
P be possible to see some practical results
from its use. With the townships pro
inerly organized and making a good
showing, addresses from the three prom
inent gentlemen above named who have
been invited, and a good attendance of
those interested from all sections of the
county, there is no reason why the
meeting should not be very successful
and create an enthusiasm which will be
the means of accomplishing great re
sults for the improvement of the public
highways of Newberry County.
Organization In Tio. 2.
In obedience to a call issued by Vice
-President W. C. Brown, for the pur

Two Time-Pieces Found in House Formerly
Occupied by ElUJah Edwards,
Charged With R'urder.
Sheriff Buford was notified recently
that negroes living near had in their
possession two watches which were
found in the house formerly occupied by
Elijah Edwards, colored, who is charged
with the murder of J. Butler Kinard,
and who is now a fugitive from justice.
Sheriff Buford went to see the negroes
and they turned over the two watches
to him. One is a brass watch, of small
value. The other is an old style solid
gold watch, and appears to be of con
siderable value.
It will be remembered that in July of
last year the house occupied by J. But
ler Kinard, four miles from the city,
was burned to the ground, and Kinard
himself perished in the flames. Suspi
cion centered on Elijah Edwards, a
young negro man who lived with Kinard,
and Edwards was indicted at the coro
ner's inquest. Edwards, however, had
departed that section of the country.
At the time he was burned to death, it
is believed that Kinard had a small sum
of money-something like $200-and two
watches. The watches now in the hands
of the Sheriff are supposed to have been
the two watches owned by Kinard.
Whether they were taken by Edwards
after the murder or left in Edwards'
house previously, is a question, how
At The Opera House.
The Greenville News has the follow
ing to say of a recent performance by
the Herald Stock Company in Green
ville. This company will appear in
Newberry for six nights, beginning
next Monday, the 29th:
To a large audience at the Grand last
night the Herald Square Stock Co. pre
sented the four-act comedy drama, "A
Midnight Call."
In this play the members of the cast
seemed especially at home, and they
certainly did better work with it. Miss
LaPorte as the child-like sweetheart,
the "girl wife, " was charmingly piquant
and vivacious.
It is safe to say that no better spe
cialties than were offered last night have
been put on in Greenville in a long time.
The management is faithful to its pro
mis of a nightly change of specialties,
and always surprises and amuses witlh
something new and up to the minute.
The autoscope illustrations are the best
ever brought to the city, while the
songs and dancing are above the av
The company plays here at popular
prices, 10, 20, and 30. Electric fanq
will be placed at the opera house dur
ing their engagement, and the attrac
ion is likely to be above the ordinary
and very popular.

more than one hundred and the council

The degree of Pocahontas is an or
ganization more especially of ladies, the
wives and mothers an( daughters of
Red Men and the Red Men themselves
being eligible to membership. In the
work of benevolence which is one of the
prime objects of the order of Red Men,
there is work for which woman is es
pecially fitted and which can only be
done best by her. It was with this
thought in mind that the degree of
