A BOLD BURGLAKT.
The Thief round in a Few Hours.
On Tnesdav night, about 8 o'clock,
a negro man, John Williams by name,
broke into the store occupied by John
Young, colored, using the cellar door
tor a ladder and entering through a
window. He secured quite a good
many things, among them canned
goods, candy, etc., amounting to abont
twelve dollars. He came one of the
back door and went to a supper that
wa9~ in progress to di?pose of his
fctolen property, vffering them so cheap
that suspicion was aroused. Young
on coming by hi* store iater found it
open and notified the police, who immediatel)
began a search. John Williams

and is now iuj-ul. Most of the goods
were found the next morning hidden

AN ENTHUSIASTIC MEETING IN TOWN
* SHIP XO. *
Au enthusiastic meeting of the
farmers of this township was held
yesterday at Mr. J. C. Willinghiim's
The meeting was held in persuance of
a call issued by Mr. T. L. Johnston
for the pnrpos3 of organizing the
"Cotton Growers Association of JNo.
4 township. After the object of the
meeting had been stated the meeting
entered into a permanent organization
with the e'cction of the following officers:
T. L. Johnston, president;
W. S. D lrham, vice-president; T. \Y.
Rawls, Jr., secretary.
The following delegates wore elecied
to represent this township at a meeting
of the ceunty Cotton Growers
Association to be held in Wiunsboro
on the first Monday in January next:
R. Y. Bray, T. L. Johnston, F. A.
Neil, J. C. Willingham and Ilngh S.
The different features of the lien
law were discussed, pro and con, and
after dne and deliberate consideration,
decided that the meeting was not sufficiently
improved to either amend or
abolish; in tact the pros and cons were
about equally divided.
The advisability and practical
economy of reducing tbe cotton acreage
and thereby increasing the provisional
crops was discussed, an:l the delegation
was instrneted to vole in the county
meeting for resolutions to that effect.
I am satisfied that I am voicing the
lentiment of this township when [
say that the cotton acreage of 1898
will be materially rcduced with a
corresponding increase in tho planting
of other crops. They realize the fact
that it the cotr.on acreage of the south
is materially redaced that the farmers
will realize more money on the remaining
part than they could have
done on the whole; and if the acreage
is not reduced generally they cannot
los3 anything, for five cents for cotton
is at or belosv the cost of production.
Another meeting will be held on the

At this season the business of our
town is a little beyond the highest
especta'ions of the merchants. Already
5.400 bales jof cotton has beeo
sold a d it is still coming in at the
rate of about 50 bales a day. The
merchants are confident of receiving
6,500 bales of the '97 crop. This doea
not mean that Ridgeway is merely a
good cotton market, and from that
only she draws her support. 1- is

this is that she is a businegs little town,

There are only fifteen stores open
here now, but they all have in a hea- y

opinion of this community that anything
from a paper of pins up to "a

cheaply in Ridgeway as in any other
town of the State. If there is any
one inclined to doubt the verity of this
