If the Civic League wants to
do still more for the city beauti
ful, let them prevail upon the
council to stop this thing of
piling wood on the streets and
having it cut there. Certainly
nothing can be uglier.
e The State Fair is right on us.
All Winnsboro and the most of
Fairfield will go down just as a
matter of habit and for the fur
ther purpose of meeting so many
friends from a distance, who will
be back this home coming week.
The Fair is the one great social
event of the whole year in the
"Old Palmetto" State.
There ought to be the strictest
enforcement of the game law this
season. The seabon for t h e
shooting of birds does not open
till November 15 and every sports.
man and every lover of birds
should co-operate for the pro
tection thus aforded these feath
ered creatures by this law. On
account of the heavy rains of the
past summer the little birds have
perished in such large numbers
that at the every best they are
going to be very scarce this time.
Unless the law is enforced, the
number of birds left for next sea
son will be so small that there
will be even greater scarcity of
birds another fall than there is
this. So, Mr. Hunter, let your
gun stay at its place in the home,
till the law says you can take it
We have again secured from Winns
boro another person, Miss Mollie Smith
who is now cashier for J. L. Coker &
Co. We have a "Winnsboro colony"
' here now, all fine people too, and if
that town will offer the proper trade,
we will send for the entire town, and
name our little city Hartsville-Winits
That Winnsboro colony coma
p3sed of fine people, of course it
is. That is the kind kept at
home as well as sent out for
colonizing purposes. With these
new colonists there is hope for
the banner L '.le town of the
Pedee. The more Winnsboro
people a town has, the better off
it is. That is why Columbia has
made so rapid strides forward,
and it has been this constant
drain upon Winnsboro for so
many of its good men and women
for other town that has prevented
it from occupying a higher place
- in the industrial picture. If
Hartsville could get all t ha e
Winnsboro people down there,
then it would be a town sure
enough. There would be too
much business activity a n d
social life to have any such
long name, as that suggested by
our contemporary. Harts-Wi.nn
would sound a whole lots better
and would be more in keeping
wit~h a little of what is going on
down that way now. But then
such a trade is not possible, for
Winnsboro is the hub of this
whole mundane sphere and such
a change might cause a great
disturbance among the planets.
The old town is going to stay
right where it is, keep more of
itss young men and women here,
and go forward with that some
push as other towns it has colo
nized. Her days of colonization
Winnsboro the Market.
.Winnsboro is holding its past
good record as a cotton market.
It was the very first marke in
this section this season to pay
11 cents for any new cotton and
the price here throughout the
fall has been the very best. We
had occasion to be at Chester
one day recently and on inquiry
found that the average price of
cotton there that day was several
points lower than it was that
same day in Winnsboro. A few'
days later we had occasion to
-compare the two markets again
and found that Winnsboro was at
least ten points ahead. From
two of the leading men of Chester
we had it that the Winnsboro
market has all the while this sea
son been about ten points higher
than the Chester n-orket. The
explanation is easy.- Here in
Winnsbcro there are several
buyers and there is the liveliest;
competition between them for the
fleecy staple. In Chester the
cotton for the most part is bought
by two or three merchants who
in turn sell to the buyers. If you
want to get the very best prices
for your cotton bring it to 'W inns
boro, which is also the best place
to buy your goods.
Keep the bowels open when you
have a cold and use a good remedy to
allay the inflanmma tion of mucous
membranes. The best is Kennedy's
Laxative Honey and Tar. It contains
no opiates, moves the bowels, drives
out the cold. Is reliable and tastes
HEAD'0N COLLISION ON SOUTI1HRN i d
Three Miles North of Winnsboio, Ret
suiting in Death of Three men, D. M. c
Dixon of Blackstock Being among t
There was a fearful head-on N
collision on the Southerv Sunday I
morning at 5:05 o'clock at the 69
mile post, just three miles north I
of Winnsboro between 1626, an
engine going from Charlotte to
to Columbia to do some relief
work and 74, a freight going from
Columbia to Charlotte, whichl
resulted in the death of the whole
crew on the special and the
serious injury of the engineer,'
and fireman, on the freight. The
dead are 'David M. Dixon o f
Blackstock, conductor on light
engine; Henry Pile, until recently
of Manchester, Va., engineer on
light engine; and James T. Mc
Pherson, Jr., of Columbia, fire
man on light engine. The injured
are Henry Gates, colored fireman
on freight, who will die; James
G. Price, engineer on freight, and
Chas. D. Weir, white brakeman
on freight.' The colored fireman,
Gates, had his left leg so badly
crushed that amputation was
necessary and he was seriously
injured internally and about the
head. Engineer Price suffered)
a sprained ankle and back and
was cut in the head. Brakeman
Weir, who was less seriously hurt
than any of the injured, sprained
his ankle in jumping.
. The spot at which this deplora
ble accident happened is one of,
the most dreaded on the whole
road because of the sharpness of'
the curve, one side of the track
being seven inches higher than
the other. It is the same at which
a miltary train from Savannah
was wrecked in 1893.
The cause of Sunday morning's
tragedy was the failure of the
operator, Mr. H. E. Bolick, at the
Blanding street station in'Colum
bia to deliver to the conductor
on 74 the order to meet this
extra at Winnsboro. As soon as
74 pulled out of Winnsboro and
the agent here made his report
of its departure, the dispatcher
in Columbia knew that there was
every probability of a collision,
but he was powerless to do any
ithing, as the engine then was
already below ,Chester, the next
telegraph station on the north.
Young Dixon's death is indeed
pathetic. Passionately fond of
railroading, he had started at
the very-bottom and was working
his way up with such strides
that at the age of only 23 he had
received hia promotion as con
ductor. He was making his first
run in this higher position and
in just a few minutes aftei pass
ing the station nearest his father's
country home, he was hurled
through the window of the* cab,
in which he was sitting, with
such violence that his skull was
crushed, as it came in contact
with the irom work and death
resulted instantly. His . fath'er,
Mr. W. B. Dixon of Blackstock,
was at once notified of the sad
ending of the life of the son of
promise and came at ornee to the
spot, where were hosts of friends,
sympathizing with him in the~
great and sudden loss he had
sustained. Young Dixon's re
mains were broudhit to Winnsboro
to the home of Mr. Daniel Hall
and that afternoon taken to Black
The escape of Brakeman Weir,
also from Fairfield, was indeed a
narrow bne. He was the first to
see the awful approtebing fate
and jumped from the flying train.
He sustained only slight injuries.
Engineer Pile seems to have
been the first on the light t ngine
to have seen the approuebing
freight and was caught het weeni

Engineer Price of the freight 1
escaped by jumping from the
train. He fell under the debri is
and for an hour was unconsiou.
He will probably r. cover.
Conductor Murphy of t hi &
freight, the only one of the t soW
crews who was uninjured, brought 1
the sad news to Winnsboro.4
Soon the company's physician,
Dr. J. C. Buchanan, was at thejt
scene of the wreck and the wreck- I
ing train came on a little later.7
It was after daik Sunday eveniic'
before the track was cleared and
trains were again running,.
The two engines that came to- c
gether with such violence were J
put out of business. Ten freightg
cars were ditched. ti
Many people from Winnsboroe
and the surrounding countryV1
visited the scene of the wreck
during the day. Many also came
from Chester and Columbia on
the local passenger trains, which
handled the traffic that daiv
between Charlotte and Columbia,

While the wrecking train was l
~emoving the debris Monday t
norning, the heay crane of the
errick caused it by its own',

work of clearing up the wreck
goes right on.

came up Sunday to view the

with the officers of the road are
