ti el, formerly of this County, but for I

ty, G.o., was married Sunday of last I
week ic Miss Saiiio Skelton, of Hart!
County. The marriage was solemnized I

and a resident at Cox's Mill, was noti-1
fled and was pieouuc nt the wedding, j
returning home the Monday following, j
Monday night ho received a telegram
informing him, in substance, that his I ;
son, the bride-groom, had been found
with his throat cut. Tho father left I
for the home of his son at once, but
nothing has been heard from him
since. It appears that the baying of a
hound attracted parties to a nearby
swamp Monday morning where they I
were horrified to find young Mcconnel
lying in a pool of blood with his throat I
cut. He was still breathing, but it
waa thought he would die before phy-1
sicians could reach him. Whether he
had been fonlly dealt with or whether
it was an attempt at suicide could not j

The Primary Election.
Enclosed in this issue isa supplement
giving the tabulated vote of the Coun
ty with totals for each candidate. Care
has been taken to correct the errors in
the. tables previously published, and
these can be filed for future reference
so far as the totals are concerned, the
only trcuble being that in some in
stances two boxea have been Counted
There will be no second race lot
County offices. The majority, with
one accord, were together in the selec
tion of a man for every office. This is
unusual? bntit serves toshow that the
majority of the voters in this County
are working in perfect harmony.
Those elected are: For the Senate,
J. K. Hood; House of Representatives,
J. B. Leverett, G. A. Rankin, W. P.
Wright, M. P. Tribble and S. N. Pear
man; Probate Judge, R. Y. H. Nance;
County Supervisor, J. X. Yandi ver;
Supt. Education, R. E. Nicholson;
Treasurer, Jas. M. Payne; Auditor, G.
N. C. Boleman,
For the office of Judge of Probate,
Judge Nance had the small majority of
17 over the total votes cast for that
office, and E. W. Long, one of the can
didates for this office, receiving the
next largest number of votes, decided
to contest the election because he was
informed that there were a few Blight
errors in returns from several voting
precincts. He came to the city Mon
day and advised with friends, and
finally decided that an informal re
count of several cf tho boxes he had
reason to believe were incorrect would
decide whether he would proceed with
or abandon the contest.
County Chairman H. H. Watkins,
with his usual kind courtesy, readily
acquiesced, and, with E. G. Mcadams, j
representing Judge Nance, the votes of
several boxes were counted. An error
of only one vote was discovered and
Mr. Long announced himself as satis
fied. This ended the idea of contest
and called off the meeting of the exe-'
cativo committee which was called to
It ls a remarkable fact that every
one of the nominees for the House of
Representatives is an old Yeterao.
This shows the esteem in which they
are held by the voters oi. Anderson
At the second primary to bo held on
the Oth inst, candidates to be voted for !
will be those for U.S. Senate and Con
gress, Governor, Lieutenant-Governor^
Secretary of State, Comptroller Gen- j
eral, Adjutant and Inspector General
and Railroad Commissioner.
Mr. McCuliy States Facts.
In the card in Sunday's issue of The
Daily Mail, and Advocate, and in this
issue of The Intelligencer, signed
"Anderson,'' attention was called to
tho vote of Dr. Smith in Pickens Coun
ty .ind of Mr. Aiken's vote iu Abbeville
County with the evident purpose of
disparaging the latter's standing at his
home. Now let's comparo facts and
figures. In Pickens Dr. Smith bnd no
opposition, and out of 2,400 votes he
receivod 1,GG0, losing 800 votes. In
Abbeville County, where Mr. Aiken
had strong opposition in ex-Senator
McCalla and Senator Graydon, McCalla
received 718 votes, Aiken GOO, Graydon
051. In th? town of Abbeville, where
Mr. Graydon has lived over 20 years
and Mr. Aiken for7years, Graydon
ran 16 votes behind Aiken.
In the community of Cokesbury,
Hodges and Coronaca, in Greenwood
County, where both Aiken and Gray
don were raised, the total vote there
was 240 and Aiken received 207 of them.
This statement is simply made in
fairness to Mr. Aiken and is just a
little information for t hp public.
From the number of votes Mr. Aiken
received in the primary I think that it
is pretty well conceded that he is the
man to represent our District in Con
To send Wyatt Aiken to Congress I
am sure would be no discredit to the
.name onr forefathers were so loyal to,
bnt am positive would be a credit to
thia District and so wo would elect a
thoroughly conscientious man-up-to
date on all National questions, and
one that would represent us well.

"MAKE HAY WHILE THE SON SHINES I"
It is very easy to make Hay while the sun shines if you have
A DEERING MOWER and RAKE.
THE many advantages the Deering Mower has enables the operator to
work it with much more ease than any other machine, and no time lost in go
ing around stumps and trees. This Machine is so constructed that the driver
is at no trouble in lowering and raising the cuttei bar in passing stumps an?
trees. With no effcrt scarcely he brings the cutter bar to an upright position
without stopping the Machine. There are many other advantages the Deer
ing Ideal Mower has that we will show you when you want a M'wer. The
Pitman Rod of this Mower has only two pieces, while all other Machine?
have from ten to twenty-five pieces to wear out and be replaced.
The Mower is not all in looking up an outfit. It is essential to have a
good Rake, and the Deering Rake is the simplest Rake on the market^ A
comparison of our Rake with other makes will convince any farmer that it is
the Rake he needs. The devices for dumping are so constructed that a child
can operate it without any assistance. If you are in need of an outfit let u?
show you our Mower and Rake and be convinced.
Now is the time to sow your stubble laud in Peas and harrow them in.
with one of our TORRENT HARROWS.
We are still headquarters for all lines of Hardware, Nails and Wire.
