Proceedings of Withdrawal From
Manchuria ali ? Screaming
On October 8, last year, the Rus?
sians nominally evacuated Manchuria
under the agreement with the powers.
Russia had, however, the. right under
the convention with China, to keep
troops in Manchuria to guard the
l^lroad she has built It is not like?
ly that a single soldier was withdrawn
into Siberia.
' All the world knows the marvelous
change that- Russia made along the
line of this railroad. Any traveler on
this road would almost forget that he
was in Chinese territory.
Hallar, for example, which five
years ago was an insignificant Chinese
town in the Northwest, is today really
a Russian city,, supplied with Russian
hotels, stores and hospitals. Harbin,
whichis-almost in the exact center of
Manchuria and is the point where the
branch road from Port Arthur inter?
cepts the, main line running from
Siberia. to ^Vladivostok, is now the
home of 9,000 Russians.and a flourish?
ing' and active^ town.
South- -of; Harbin - the Russians have
established" colonies - and built many
hundreds of"- houses on the concessions
which China ' gave to them outside all
the large towns. The Russian conces?
sion just outside of Mukden has an
area of 244 square miles, on which
large barracks were erected, as .well as
buildings for the railroad officials, the
officers of the Russian garrison and
colonists brought into the country
In all towns where Russian troops
were quartered along the railroad the
evacuation consisted simply in march?
ing the troops from the towns to
I the concessions near them. At Mukden,
for example, the troops that were in
campen the outside of the town merely
marched an hour to the Russian con?
cession andi there they remained.
Where the troops were massed on the
concessions instead of in the im?
mediate environs of the towns they
?ave not budged an inch.
The news came the- -other day that
-Newehwang had been reoccupied by
Russia troops. It was a very easy mat?
ter, for when the town was'evacuated
. by the Russian garrison the troops
simply tramped for an hour up the
river to the Russian concession. They
have now marched back again ; i and
this is all the Russian evacuation
amonnts to.
Russia of course, had retained per?
mission, to guard the railroad which
^she built across Manchuria at enor?
mous expense. The road, to be sure,
was nominally built by a Chinese com?
pany, but it is actually a Russian com?
pany and Russian capital that carried
cst the enterprise.-New York Sun.
J^od Carried Wounded Hound j
By Two Companions.
The intelligence of dogs was never
better displayed than th a case which
came to Hgbt here this week, says a
Greenville, N. H., dispatch to The
New York Sun..
A little more than six weeks, ago
?JOU?S Cameron lost a valuable hound.
When last seen the animal was in
company with Charles Rodier's dog
Sport and a little fox terrier, and all
three were making for the woods on a
run. Mr. Cameron tried to find some
traces ol his hound, but finally decid?
ed that he had been shot or poisoned
and gave up hopes of recovering him.
Immediately after the disappearance
of the hound Sport began to leave Iiis
master's house regularly every morn?
ing, returning each evening. Mr.
riodier tried-to follow the dog, being
curious to know. what took him into
the woods so much with the fox ter?
rier. He supposed the two dogs went
hunting together, but failed to find
any evidences of .their having done so.
?iast Sunday as Charles Newton was
walking down the Wilton road, he saw
-Sport and the fox terrier sitting be?
side the road looking into the bushes.
To his great surprise both dogs growl
.ed savagely at him, although he had
always petted them.
Walking psst-the pair slowly Mr. j
Newton spied the lost hound crouching
in the bushes. The hound was a
pitiable sight. One of his hind legs
was gone and all the toes were miss?
ing from ono 'ore foot. The tail bad
"been cut off short sud a long, freshly
healed scar showed where bis head had
been torn open. One eye was also
#one. The wounds were fairly weil
healed, and Mr. "Newton concluded
that the Cameron hound was bound
for home, being assisted by Sport and
the fox terrier.
Appearances indicated that the
bound had been run over by a train,
and tfae regular disappearance of Sport
and the terrier proves beyond a doubt
that they carried him food and cared
for him during the six weeks that he
lav wounded in the woods.
Henry Ward Beecher's Ghost.
The recent discussion of spiritual-.
Ssm, in which we are told that th?"
ghost of Henry Ward Beecher has ap?
peared to a former friend, and con?
fined himself, in his message to com?
plaining that a certain coin, known as
*'the widow's mite," had not been re?
turned tc him, reminds us of an inter?
esting incident in Mr. Beecher's life
while he was still in the flesh. The
great preacher was in England, as the
story goes, and was being entertained
by a gentleman who believed in Spir?
itualism and was himself a medium.
One day he asked if Beecher would
like to talk with the spirit of his
father, Dr. Lyman Beecher. Mr.
Beecher replied that it would please
him immensely. After the seance was
over he was asked how it had impress?
ed him, at which, with a twinkle in
his eye, Beecher responded: "AU I
have to say is, that if I deteriorate as
fast for the first ten years after I am
dead as my father has I shall be a
stark-naked fool." When one considers
the high and noble purposes to which
Mr. Beecher devoted himself while on
earth, and the things on which his
mind seems to run now, we are con?
strained to recall this incident

The Government Has Not Issued
Patent to Any South Carolinian.
The Wasb?ntgon Evening Star says :
The commissioner of patents, Mr.
Frederick I. Allen, has stated posi?
tively that the patent office will not,
under any conditions, issue patents
on so called * ' perpetual motion" ma?
chines and that no patents for such
machines have been issued by the office
for the the past forty years. This
statement of the commissioner was
made in response to an inquiry of a re?
porter for the Star regarding the al?
leged issue of a patent for a perpetual
motion machine to a man in South
Carolina. This . man claimed to have
received a patent for his machine, and
long articles praising him and the
machine have appeared in several of
the leading Southern papers. It was
a clipping from one of these papers,
which contained, among other, things,
an alleged statement of the patent
office officials, regarding the utility and
practical merit of the marine, which
brought forth such .an unqualified
denial from Commissioner Allen.
The -clipping' was brought to the
commissioner by a Star reporter with
a request for, a" statement as to its
truth. Mr. Allen did not hesitate to
pronounce the statement false. It has
never come from the patent office, he
"The article to which you call my
attention," said Commissioner Allen,
*'published in a daily paper of Colum?
bia, S. C., and entitled Perpetual
Motion Machine Patented. First
Patent in Forty Years. The Inventor
au Sumter Architect, Mr. D. G.
Zeigler-Generates Power for Effec?
tive Work;" is absolutely false where
it says, in respect to this invention :
'It is the first, perpetual motion in?
vention that the United States govern-,
ment has allowed a patent for in forty
years, ' because the patent office is not
allowing paten ts upon perpetual motion
machines at the present time.
"A long description appears in this
article, preceded "by the words: The
United States patent office has the fol?
lowing to say about the machine, and
at the end of it-'This indorsement by
the patent bureau shows that Mr.
Zeigler has hit upon a practical ma?
chine. * * ?-?r. Zeigler took his
machine to Washington and illustrated
it, putting it to a practical test, and
the commissioners were so well pleased
with it that they told him that his
application would be filed and allow?
" These statements . are so utterly
false in their implication that the
patent office would do anything so
foolish that it is difficult to conceive
for what purpose this article was writ?
ten, unless it was prepared to cast dis?
credit upon the operations of the
United States patent office, or else in?
duce ignorant people tc embark their
money in a fraudulent enterprise.
"It is enough to say that the United
.States patent office: does- not intend to
assist in any schemes of such nature."
Higher Education in India.
India is covered with great uni?
versities and colleges of excellent
rank. All instruction is in English.
But the more ambitious youth must
break caste and actually cross the
Kalapani, the "black-water," which
ancient Hindus were prohibited from
venturing upon.
This one returns an Indo-Gothique,
emancipated from spiritul law and
tradition. But there is no place for
him either in Hinda or English
society. He cares no longer to live in
the most composite family of his rela?
tions ; he shakes hands and slaps the
'back of "the old man" whose lotus
feet he used to fall and kiss. He
thought the higher education" would
make him a great man-an 4 ' illus?
trious fellow-citizen." But the
English who reci?ved him so warmly
in London withdraw their cordiality
in India? He has offended his own,
and even though he may through ex?
pensive penances return to his
caste, tho; sacred thread of family and
spiritual relation is broken. His acute
attack of English education bas result?
ed in chronic -gloom and disappoint?
ment.-Everybody's Magazine.

Sumter, S. C., May 20,1903.
The City Board of Education met
at 12 o'clock M., to dispose of bids on
School building bonds.
Present: Commissioners E. C.
Haynsworth, Chairman, A. B.
Stuckey, M. Moise.
The Secretary reported that in an?
swer to his telegram to S. A. Kean,
Chicago, III., he had received a let?
ter statiug that bis (Kean's) bid was
fqr five per cent, bonds " and not four
per cent. Whereupon, the following
preamble and resolutions were
adopted :
Whereas, the Board of Education
of the School District, . City of Sum?
ter, has advertised sale of ($15,000)
fifteen, thousand dollars school
building bonds to be issued under
authority of Act of the General As?
sembly of South Carolina, approved
March 2nd, 1903, payable in twenty
years with interest at not more than
five (5; per cent, per annum. And
whereas/a majority of the freehold?
ers of the said School District had
petitiooed for an election to deter?
mine whether or not such bond issue
should be made. And whereas,
such election was duly ordered, and
held according to law on the 24th
day of March, 1903-resulting by a
large majority in favor of such issue
-To wit: 159 votes for, aud 6 votes
against their issue. And whereas,
several bids were received in answer
to the said advertisement. Among
them, one from the First National
Bank of Sumter, offering to take, at
par, the entire issue of fifteen thou?
sand dollars at 4)? per cent, interest,
payable semi-annually for twenty
years. And whereas, in the judg?
ment of the said Board of Educa?
tion, the aforesaid bid of the First
National Bank of Sumter, is the
most advantageous to the said
School District. Now., therefore, be
Resolved, that the City Board of
Education of Sumter, hereby ac?
cepts the bid of the said Bank.
Resolved further, that E. C.
Haynsworth, Chairman, and C. M.
Hurst, Secretary and Treasurer of
the said Board are hereby authoriz?
ed and directed to properly execute
the said bonds in coupon form dated
July 1st, 1903; the interest coupons
thereof being payable semi-annually
on January 1st, and July 1st, for
twenty, years at the rate of 4?? per
cent, per annum. And wnen so exe?
cuted to deliver the said bonds to
the said Bank, upon payment of fif?
teen thousand dollars therefor. All
necessary expenses incurred in exe?
cution and delivery of said bonds to
be paid by the said School District
of the City of Sumter.
The following will explain the
reasons of the Board's acceptance of
the Bank's proposition:
Pursuant to the advertisement for
bids on the $15,000 of City School
Bonds, the Board of Education met
on the 15th to open and consider
these bids. There were two that the
Board seriously considered. One
was from a Cincinnati firm for 4 per
cent, at par ; but with the stipula?
tion that the City should pay at once
the sum of $500 for fees-a bid there?
fore, not at par, but at 9673 per cent.
The other bid was at a premium of
101 1-10; but, where the figure repre
sentingthe per cent, should have
been, there was a 4 andover that a 5.
The Board telegraphed to Chicago
for an interpretation of the bid. No
answer was received until Tuesday
and that revealed the fact that the
bid was at 5 per cent, not 4 per cent.
But whatever the result of the com?
parison may have been, the Board
could not have accepted the Cincin?
nati proposal as the Act providing
for the bond issut> specially provided
against a sale of such bonds below
In order to satisfy itself as to the
relative value of the Cincinnati bid
as compared with that of the First
National Bank of Sumter, the Board
had a calculation made which re?
sulted as follows:
Computing the compound amount
on $500 for 20years at 7 per cent, the
result obtained was $2070.18. The
compound amount of $75 for 20 years
plus the excess in interest paid dur?
ing the twenty years will equal
$1790.24, a difference in favor of the
Bank's proposal of $279.94.
There was a tacit understanding
between the Bank and the Board
that, if a better bid should be receiv?
ed, the Bank would release the
Board. After the advertisements
had been taken out of the State pa?
pers an advertisement was placed in
its columns by.one of the New York
financial papers and some of the
bids received showed that those in?
terested were not influenced by the
Board's naming the Bondsfour per
cent, bonds; for their bids read 5 per
cent. In view of these considera?
tions the Board on Wednesday
morning formally ?ccepted the pr' -

A Petrified Log.
A piece of petrified hickory log was
left at this office last week by a negro
man named Abraham, from Bernini,
S. C.
He said that he put the hickory log
into a stream of water that flows into
the Santee river abouttwo and a half
miles from that point, about eight
years ago, expecting that it would be?
come petrified, He dug it cut not long
ago, and in doing so broke it in two.
The piece he brought is about 3
feet long and 6 or 7 inches in diameter
at the largest part. It shows the grain
and knots of the wood, and appears
to be mostly the heart of the tree, and
that the sap has rotted off leaving the
surface irregular.
He wanted to sell it, but failing to
find a purchaser, and having become
tired by its weight, about 60 pounds,
he decided to leave it here until he
can dispose of it.
It is said to be good material for
hones and whetstones.
Any one having curiosity to see it
is invited to call and do so.
Some Results of the Investigation
Already Apparent.
Orders for the Promotion of 3,
046 Postal Clerks to a Rank
Carrying a Higher Salary to
be Cancelled.
Washington, May 20.-The cancella?
tion of tbe promotions of over3, OOO post
office clerks throughout the country,
recently authorized by the department,
and a formal notice to former First
Assistant Postmaster General Perry
S. Heath of the charges made against
him by Ex-Cashier S. W. Tulloch, of
the Washington city postoffice, consti?
tuted today's developments in the post
office investigation. First Assistant
Postmaster General Wynne late this
afternoon reported to Postmaster Gen?
erali Payne that the tabulation . of
the clerks in each grade in postoffices
of the first class had been completed.
This work was undertaken in accord?
ance with the order made by the Post?
master General to rearrange the salar?
ies of the clerks already classified so <
that the number in the several grades
shall not exceed the number specifical?
ly prescribed in the Act of Congress,
making appropriations for the postal
service. The former classification was
made by George W. Beavers just prior
to his sudden resignation as chief of
the division of salaries and allowan?
ces. The report says :
"It will not be necessary, in any
case, to reduce any. clerk, but simply
to cancel 3,046 out of 7,412 promotions
heretofore authorized to take effect
July 1; 1903. We will proceeed at once
to ascertain exactly . the number of
promotions in each grade it will be
neccessary to cancel at each postoffice,
and then will inform the postmasters
and allow them to select the increases
which must be cancelled. "
The Postmaster General today sent
to Perry S. Heath a copy of the
charges filed by Mr. Tulloch together
with a letter requesting any informa?
tion he may care to submit on the
subjcet. This is the first official com?
munication with Mr Heath during
the investigation. Auditor Castle, of
the postoffice department, .was busy
today reviewing the records of hi?
office in conection with the Tulloch
charges, and will submit his reply
to the Postmaster General probably
The end of the investigation is not
yet in sight. Fourth Assistant Post?
master General Bristow, who is con?
ducting the work, has not set any date
for the submission of his report, for
the reason that the sweeping nature of
the investigation has made it impossi?
ble to indicate when the whole matter
will be ready to be placed in hands
of the Postmsater General for final
disposition, lt is probable that the
report will not be submitted before the
close of June or the early part of July.

The railroads have promised special
rates to Columbia for the meeting
Or. Geddings at the Sanitary Conference.
Surgeon General Walter Wyman of
the U. S. Marine Hospital and Public
Health Service, has notified Dr. T G.
Simons, Chairman State Board of
Health, that Dr. H. D. Geddings,
Assistant Surgeon General has been
detailed to read two papers at the

on general subjects pertaining to pub?
lic sanitation.
Mr. W. B. S. Whaley, of Columbia,
has been requested to read an import?
ant paper, also, on "Mill Sanita?
tion," and as he has had great experi?
ence it is a foregone conclusion his
paper will be an interesting one.
Dr. Geddings' papers should be
heard by all public officials and mill
June Everybody's.
You will rarely see as interesting a
table of contents as that of the June
number of Everybody's Magaize. Be?
ginning w?th the full-page frontispiece
of Thomas Wallace Russell, who has
taken Parnell's place as leader in the
fight for Ireland's freedom, and end?
ing with "some additional remarks"
by Simeon Ford, with his quaint and
irresitible humor, the magazine is
brimfull of bright, snappy, entertaining
work by good writers, some of them
well known, others who are sure to be.
"Then Ireland Will Be Free," by
Frederick James Gregg, makes
romance of Ireland's long struggle for
liberty, and at the same time reduces
to simplicity the much discussed home
rule question. Justus Miles Forman,
in "The Needle of The Damned,"
weaves a difficult choice into
a somewhat strenuous love
story. Intimate Portraits as usual
are exclusive and introduce you to
people whom von very much wish to
know. "The'Wooing of Ab-Te" con?
tinues the Indian Idyl begun in the May
number. The "Marquis and Miss
Sally" is a Western story by 0.
Henry ; we need not say it is clever,
since it is by O. Henry. "Twice
Born," by Edmund Russell, is a de?
scription of childhood in India, which
conjures up the dreamy atmosphere of
the East. In "A Dakota Romance,"
M. W. Law, while telling a strong
love-story, manages to paint a convine- j
ing picture of emigrant life in the Wes
tern prairie. James L. Ford is at his
best in "The Coming Queen of
Comedy." Lillian Pettingiii con?
cludes "Toilers of the Home," making
many interesting statements about
the lives and thoughts of servant girls.
Read "Significant Autobiographies"
if you would know how it feels to be
lifted from a small Western town into
Congress and out again. In "The
Imperturbable Moores" Will Payne
has written one of the finest character
studies that has ever appeared in any
magazine. Herman Whitaker in "The
Wheel of the Potter," gives us a stir?
ring tale of the Northwest. The four
"Little Stories of Real Life" in this
