ESCAPED CONVICT CAPTURBD.
John Coleman During His Brief Absence
From the Gang Committed Another
John Coleman, one of the two
negroes who escaped from the
county chain gang on Sunday
night, was captured at about day
light Tuesday morning at Gold
vill vhere he had stopped over to
see his wife on his way,to Spartan
burg, by Guard B. M. Koon and
his brother, Mr. B. E. Koon,.of the
city police force. Coleman was
serving a nine nionths' sentence on
the gang for stealing, three months
of this time having ,been imposed
by the city, and six months by the
circuit court, and during his brief
absence from the gang lie coin
mitted another theft which will
probably lengthen his sentence a
few days or more.
The story of Coleman's escape
shows that lie is utterly de,oid of
even that honor which is said to
exist among the lowest thieves. At
about i r o'clock oil Suinday night
Toti Hampton, who was on the
gang for a long period, and who had
been made a trusty, secured a file
from the engine. He first filed
Coleman's shackles and when they
were loosed asked Coleman to do
the samie for him. Coleman de
clilned and left Haipton to get off
as best lie could. This IIampton
succeeded ini doing and has not yet
Colemli:m1 proceeded on foot to

day Coleman entered a house about
two miles froim town belonging to"A
negro named Ulysses Riser and
took therufromi a pair of trousers
belonging to Spencer Brown.

A MYSTERIOUS ROBBERY.
Purcell & Scott's Money Drawer Relieved
Of About $5.00 Monday Night
May Be Other Losses.
Policenian J. W. Davis while on
his nightly rounds about 2 o'clock
Tuesday morning discovered that
the back door of Purcell & Scott's
general merchandise establishment
was unlocked, though the door
was shut. Mr. W. A. Hill,
who works for the firm, was noti
fied. Upon investigation it was.
found that about $5.00 left
in the money drawer for change
was missing, and it is thought that
a sack of flour and possibly other
articles of merchandise are missing,
though this can not be told defi
nitely. Mr. Hill is confident that
the door was barred from the inside
on Monday night. The only solu
tion seems to be that some one was
in hiding in the store when it was
locked up for the night and that
the party relieved the money drawer
and possibly secured other articles
and went out through the back
door, shutting it behind himi.

said he would endeavor to secure

establish his show thereon.

A CH4RITY PUND.
City Council Desires a Sum Available for
Taking Care of Unfortunates
on Their Hands.
Only the other day the city coun
cil was forced to take care of an old
negro who was to be sent to the
poor house but who could not be
sent immediately and who needed
care in the meantime. The man
was taken care of, of course, but
the city council has no funds avail
able with which to meet emergen
cies of this kind.
During several previous adininis
trations a charity fund was sub
scribed by the citizens of Newberry
and the present council desires to
secure a fund of this kind, some
thing like $L5 or $20, or more if it
can be secured. All those who
wish to subscribe to such fund may
do so by calling upon either the
ma yor or city clerk.
Mrs. S. T. Hallman's Musical.

audience. The program was well
arranged; including some twenty
selections from the best atithors.
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.
No one who is acquainted with its
good qualities can be surprised at the
great popularity of Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy. It not only cures
colds and grip effectually anperirma
nently, but prevents these diseases,
from resulting in pneumonia. It is also
a certain cure for crouip. Whooping
cough is not dangerous when this rem
edy is given. It contains no opium or
other harmful substance and may be
given as confidently to a baby as to an
adult. It is also pleasant to take.
When all of these facts are taken into
consideration it is not surprising that
)eople in foreign lands, as well as at
home, esteem this remedy very highly
and velny few are willing to take any'
other after having once used it. For

tell him to send you asack of "Clifton,"
