the several districts.

Dukes leads in District No. 1. She is
from Zion Township. The two next
highest in District No. 1 are Miss
Ethel Brewer, Union Township, and
Hiss Minnie Stevenson, Willow Town- j
1 ship. The other candidates in that |
district should- get busy and push up
their vote a few thousand; v/hich they
would find it easy to do if they would
call on their friends to help them.
In District No. 2, Miss Mabel Wan
namaker leads. Sho registers from
~^' City Township. Mrs. G. V. Porter,
Kiddle Township, is second, and Miss
Julia Reed, Elizabeth Township, is
third in the race from District No. 2.
Some other candidates are not very)
far behind the above candidates and I
with a little work among their
friends could soon catch up. All the |
candidates in District No. 2 should
do their level best for the next report.
In District No. 3. Miss Dot Bull
of Providence Township, leads with
Miss Nettie Wannamaker, of Bowman
Township, and Miss Aurelia Rast,
of Providence Township, coming sec
ond and third respectively in District I
No. 3. Several othere in this dis-|
trict are close behind the above can

work among their friends soon catch
up with the highest candidate in the
district. Now Is the time to work.
Miss Birdie Rickenbaker leads In
? the whole territory. She is from
. Amelia Township in Calhoun County.
Miss Essie Mae Wolfe, ' Caw Caw|
Township, comes second In this Dis
trict and Miss Annie Carson, Pine
j Grove Township, comes third'. The

j 4; Miss Mabel Wannamaker, District!
No. 2; Miss Jessie Dakes, District No. f

FLEECED AN OLD FARMER.
Two Fakirs Working Together Get
Away With $300.
Springfield, Dec. 2.?Special?An
old and highly-respected citizen of
tho Wagener section was here today,
and reported a "swindle" that an
exposure of may, perhaps, save some
one else from a like experience,
j This old farmer whose check is
good for almost any. amount, relates
that a few days ago, a small show
was exhibiting in the town of Wag
oner, when he, the wealthy farmer,
>vas approached by a well-dressed
young man, who represented himself
?8 a citizen from North Carolina
minting for land; offering to give the
Wagener citizen a large commission
on all lands that he would assist him
Gaining the attention of the old
man he Invited him to meet the fath
er of the young man, and in hunting
around for the supposed "father"
they accidentally ran across a "prom
inent" traveling physician who de
sired to demonstrate a sure cure for
all kidney troubles. The young real
estate hunter Immediately became In
terested, as ho had Brlght's disease,
and his earnestness brought the old
man from Wagener, to a full reali
atPm of his trouble with his kidneys.
The socalled "physician" requiring
each party to exhibit five hundred
ollars, that he might know they were
responsible, before he would consent
to give this very valuable remedy
away. After much dickering each
party secured the necessary money,
and handed it to the "physician" to
count The result was the "phy
sician" left the old man from Wag
ener with his young real estate
friend, minus five hundred dollars.
The supposed real estate man buy
ing the silence of the old man by
promising to make good the amount
lost the next morning, but when the
old man from Wagener awoke the
next morning his real estate man,
wiih the "prominent physician" had
left town, leaving the prominent old
man of Wagener alone in his agony
Under the recent laws passed by
the State of Kansas, these swindlers
would be caught at the expense of the
State, but under the laws of South
Carolina, unless the old man from
Wagener, will hear the expenses,
there seems to be nothing to do, but
to publish to the world that this sec
tion has its full share of suckers that

Cotton Picker at Work.
The Price-Campbell Cotton Picker
made a demonstration at Bennetts
ville on last Tuhrsday while we were
there. It picked cotton from a field
in which the cotton had been open
some time, and necessarily in bad
condition for the test. Yet the ma
chine picked at least ninety pen cent,
of the cotton on the stalks fully as
clean as it could have been picked by
hand. The machine picks one row
at a time, and will pick ten or
more acres per day. In our judgment
it has come to stay and in a very
few years will be picking all the cot
ton on the level lands of the cotton
