A Decision of U. S. Supreme
Court Concerning Overdrafts.
The following is a decision that has
been handed down by the United States
supreme court concerning the over
checking of an account with a bank:
"A usage to allow customers to over
draw and have their checks and notes
charged up without present funds in
the bank, stripped of all technical dis
guise, the usage and practice, attempt
ed to be sanctioned, is a usage and
practice to missapply the funds of the
bank; and to connive at the withdrawal
of same, without any security, in fa
vor of certain privileged persons. Such
a usage and practice is surely a mani
fest departure from the duty, both of
the directors and cashier, and cannot
receive any countenance in a court of
justice. It could not be supported by
any vote of the directors, however for
mal; and therefore, whenever done by
the cashier, is at his own peril and upon
the responsibility of himself and his
sureties. It is anything but 'well and
truly executing his duties as cashier. ' "
A Credit Guide.
A t. te B ti on is directed to the ad
vertisement in this issue of the
Merchants' Credit Company. For
more than a week a representative
of this company has been ic Edge
field arranging with the leading
merchants to issue a credit guide.
The names of all persons who have
accounts with Edgefield merchants
will be published in a book, and
their standing with reference to
reliability, promptness in payment,
and. how many accounts they owe,
will be given opposite their names.
The honest man gains rather than
loses, by having wider publicity
given to the fact that be is honest
and prompt in meeting his obliga
tions. It is the dishonest man who
will suffer and who should suffer
before he deliberately defrauds
other men who are considerate
enough to extend him credit.
Through this guide the merchants
who are subscribers will know
practically how much every person
owes and too just how prompt he is
in paying accounts at sto?es. The
plan is a good one. Nobody suffers
but the dishonest man and he should
be exposed. The individual who
will deliberately make accounts at
stores knowing at the time that he
does not intend to pay for the
goods is stealing from the merchant.
It would not be worse if he went
behind the counter and stole the
goods while the merchant's back
was turned. Wonder how many
?u?ividuals will be "black listed"
as a result of the issuiug of the
Have Returned to China.
After being in the home land for
nearly two years, Rev. aud Mrs.
E. T. Snuggs left Monday morning
to resnme their missionary work in
Canton,China. Saturday afternoon
from five-thirty to eight o'clock the
members of the Baptist church ten
dered them a farewell reception.
Dr. M. D. Jeffries was master of j
ceremonies. Appropriate remarks
were made by Rev. E. C. Bailey,
Rev. J. R. Walker, Rev. P. P.
Blalock and J. L. Mitns, and tu
these "words of good cheer, encour
agement and affectionate farewell
Rev. Mr. Snuggs replied feelingly.
He was so completely overcome
with gratitude for the many kind
nesses bestowed upon them by the
people of Edgefield aud HO greatly
depressed by the thought of soon
parting with their dear children
that it was difficult for him to
speak. More than a score of let
ters containing farewell greetings
from Edgefield friends were pie
sented to them with the reque-t
that they be not opened until they
have boarded the ship in New York
harbor. Other letters will be writ
ten before their sailing day ar
rives. The reception was largel yat
tended and was exceedingly pleasant
in spite of the sadness incident to
the going away of these dear
friends. Delicous punch, icecream
and cake were served.
Before hailing from New York
some time in May, Rev. and Mrs.
Snuggs will fill several engage
ments in this state and in Ken
tucky, and will spend a few
with Mrs. Snuggs' sister in Michi
gan. They will visit a brother of
Mr. Snuggs on arriving in London.
Their three children, Harold,
Faith and Roland, have been left in
America to be educated. They are
attending the S. C. C. I. at present,
and will probably attend school in
Greenwood under the supervision of
Col. Bailey next year. Rev. and
Mrs. Snuggs have the prayers and
good wishes of hundreds of friends
in Edgefield and throughout Soutli

Lawyers and Blind Tigers.
In writing of the blind tiger situ
ation in Spartanburg The Journal
of that eily does not mince words.
Weare especially interested in the
"How is it here in S partan burg';1
Public sentiment if not strong
enough to make blind tigers pay I
the fiues or go to the cb ai ngami.
Hore in this city a blind tiger may
be as guilty as he can be and it is
certain that he will continue the
work. There are lawyers, who, by
appeal or otherwise, will have the
sentence held up and the blind tig
er will give bond aud resume busi
ness in twenty-four hours. The j
lawyer who perverts justice when I
he knows his client is guilty of sell
ing liquor and who knows that he
will continue the business, is as bad
as the blind tiger."
We certainly agree with The
Journal as to the guilt of the law
yer, who, knowing that a blind tig
er is guilty, perverts justice to ge?,
the tiger freed. We believe that he
is the guiltier of the two, and he is
certainly as low down and deserves
to be classed with the iawless and
disreputable. We believe that tl.e
time is coming when it will be im- !
possible to find a lawyer who will j
take a blind tiger case. Very few !
of them will do it now, and as a j
rule the ones who do hive not a very ;
enviable reputation. -Greenwood
Grove School Closes-Death of
Mrs. Parkman. I
Your correspondent attended tl e
closing of the Grove school last
Friday night. The exercises con
sisted of recitations, dialogte?, tab

their part well. Mrs. Mamie Walk

school. I heard only the kind
est things said of her and her pupils.
Mrs. Bell Parkman waa buried
here last Friday at ll o'clock. Mrs.
Parkman was among the oldest
members of Red Hill church. She
lived a consistent Christian life.
She leaves five children and a host
of friends and loved ones to mourn
her loss. This was seen by the
large congregation that assembled
at ber funeral and the many beauti
ful flowers that were placed on her
grave. We extend our sympathy
to the bereaved ones.
There was a large congregation
