SHOT BY CONSTABLES.
An Affair in Charleston-The First of
Its Kind During Heyward's
John Sullivan, an employee of N.
Sottile, in Charlest--. was shot and
perhaps fatally wouLi%A*ed by a dispen
sary constable. Wednesdiy night.
This is the first homicide of the kind
in Governor Heyward's administra
tion. When the dispensary law was
enacted, Charleston thought it an out
rage on the liberty of the citizens
there. and the unwavering moral sen
timent against the law has made its
enforcement difficult. The barkeep
ers denied the right of license. con
tinued in business in daring and flag
rant opposition to the law. just as the
moonshiners think the federal law
There have been many clashes in
Charleston. but heretofore no homi
cides at the hand of the constables.
Sottile is an Italian and conducts a
cafe near the postoffice.
Sullivan and two negroes had gone
to Mount Pleasant. across the harbor,
where the liquor in bulk seems to
have' been stored. There they were
met by Constables Owens and Hudson,
who confiscated a boatload of liquor.
Sullivan started to the city, but came
back and attacked the constables with
an oar. It is stated that Hudson did
the shooting. but both constables
were placed in jail. Hudson had been
chief of police of Walterboro, Gov
ernor Heyward's home town, and has
a good reputation.

sufficient amount has been taken out
to pay the expenses of the litigation.
Just what this will be is not yet
known. but it will not be very great.
On account of the large amount of
stock now on hand there was but one
purchase made. and that was an order

death last night, the fire being ignited
by his own hands.
About midnight the second floor

THE RURAL DISTRICTS
FIVE SCHOOLS IN THE COUN

a nount from the state for the es
tablisi.ment of school libraries under

County Superintendent of Education
Eugene S. Werts states that he knows
of several other schook~ which have
begun the raising of the necessary
amount by private subscription or
which are intending to take the matter
up very .shortly, and that he hopes to
have applications from seven more
schools in a very few days. A letter
was addressed to each teacher in the
county some, time ago calling atten
tion to the advantages of the meas
ires and requesting that steps be
taken early to secure the benefits.
County Superintendent Werts and the
friends of education very much hope
that seven more applications will be
received in a very few days and, as
stated. Superintendent Werts is very
much gratified at the outlook for re
ceiving these seven additional appli

printed in full in The Herald and

A New Advertising Dodge.
The little man took a seat in the
corner of the car and started to read
one of the latest novels. He began
to smile when he read the second
page. the third appeared to be even
funnier, and when he reached the
nfth page he broke out with a loud
laugh. Everybody was interested im
mediately, and there was a simultane
ous craning of necks to catch the
title of the book.
A bearded man on the back plat
form noticed. the unusual excitement
in the car and finally caught sight of
the little man with the laugh and the
"That's John Wadsworth Serious,
the author," he said to a smooth-faced
man beside him.
"Must be a funny book, all right,"
remarked the beardless one.
Funny. nothing," retorted the
bearded man. "That's one of his own
books, and he's pretending to be
amused just to advertise it. It is a
new wrinkle, and it seems to catch
