LAURENS PHYSICIAN MET DEA I'll !
From a Wow on tho Hoad, Delivered j
Ia Mysterious Manner.
Laurens, S. C., Jan. 6.-Dr. Hugh!
K. Aiken, president of thc Laurens j
National Bank, and one of tho most ?
prominent citizens of this section of 1
the State, died here to-night at his j
home at 7 o'clock from a mysterious I
blow, which was indicted on his head '.
Just below the ear.
He wont to his home shortly after

In the bathroom; that she could
hear loud breathing in there. The
young man hastened to the room nnd

He had bled profusely from the

Tho terrible tragedy ls shrouded

that he was killed by a burglar,whom

turn homo, for there was no ono
there when the doctor wont to his
home for tho evening, after spendtn/s
the day at his bank. The officers
have made an investigation, and
there is nothing in tho room that he
could have fallon against that would
have Inflicted the fatal wound, and
lt is not believed that ho was thus
Injured boforo going to tho bath
room. He was fully dressed and was
lying near the fireplace, and there
w^re no evidences that there had
been a struggle.
Dr. Hugh K. Aiken was a 'jon of
the late A. M. Aiken, and was roared
on a farm noar Cokesbury. He took
a special course at the University of
South Carolina and later graduatod

was president of the Laurens Na
tional Bank and of tho Fnrmors' and
Merchants' Bonded Warehouse, and
was interested io many other enter
prises here. He was an elder In the
First Presbyterian church, and withal
one of tho most useful citizens of
Laurens. Ho was 53 yoars of ago
and is survived by his widow, who
was before marriage Miss Minnie
Thames, of Charleston, and by two
sons, Hugh and Robert Aiken.

Cash Textile Concern is Placed in tho
Hands of Receiver.
Gaffney, Jan. 5.- lt was learned
to-day that the Cash Mills, a $500,
OOO local corporation, had by an
order of Judge Mciver been put into
the hands of a receiver. This mill
was organized and erected by ES. lt.
Cash, who is a successful mill man
of large practical experience, and tho
nows of the receivership was receiv
ed by the Gaffney public with some
thing like consternation.
Dr. W. C. Hamrick. who is presi
dent of the Limestone, Hamrick and
Broad River Mills, was named as the
receiver, and it is hoped that be will
bo able to redoem the mill from '.lils
emhan^tsslug position, and that those
who have stock In the corporation
will not fnro so badly after all.
The difficulty which at present is
tho cause of the emharrasmont was
brought about by thc fact that Mr.
Cash bought cotton heavily a year
ago at high prices, expecting to bo
able to get machinery promptly with
which to spin the same, but the con
gestion on railroads caused delays
and thc slump came and caught him.
There is no allegation of wrong-do
ing on tho part of any one connected
with tho mills.

TRUTH ABOUT AVERAGE MAN
Not a Bad Fellow at Heart, and Really
Is at Least Entitled te
The average man ls not a bad fellow
when you come to know him. You have
to make his acquaintance If you are
not to hold yourself aloof from this-'hu
man, Interdependent world, remarks n
writer In the Philadelphia Ledger. He
constitutes a majority. It ls by his
vote that candidates are set up and
Issues determined and business gov
erned and charities supported and
plays pa ronlzed. There ls a great
deal of money In pleasing the aver
age man. Moreover, the level of his
tastes is rising, though pessimists re
fuse to see lt or to say so. He ls ca
pable of education and he bas traveled
far since his training began.
He needn't always be given all that
he asks for; sometimes he makes mis
takes, and sometimes he wants what
isn't good for him. Sometimes he
loses his head, and In an incendiary
or inebriate temper, lo.se? that which a
cooler judgment In a calmer hour leads
him to worry for. But on the whole
he is strangely reasonable and patient
and self-controlled. It ls touching to
find how often he is doing the best
he con, according to the light lie has.
He serves the world far better than
some eccentric and unconventional
mortals who sneer at him for following
a dull, unemotional routine
Leaders of men have learned to deal
with the average man, to talk his lan
guage and to understand bis ways.
They have taught the rank and file
to discover a latent capacity and to
reveal a strength hidden and unsus
pected. They have had faith in "the
general good sense and honest Inten
tions of mnnktnd." They have gen
uinely loved their fellows and their
sympathy has beeu real and manifest.

Such a machine, if the terrain be not
