SAME OLD THING.
A Runaway Mule, A Broken Buggy,
And a Bruised Driver.
The mules oi Newberry county
seem to have entered into some kind
of an agreement antagon'stic to the
human race in general. No week
passes without one or two reports of
a runaway somewhere in this section.
The latest comes from the Indepen
dance neighborhood. Mr. Jas. R. Mc
Kittrick was driving a mule hitched to
a buggy some time ago while on his
way home from church. The animal
eeing a pleasant stretch of road. cut
loose from its ordinary quiet jog and
manifested a desire to qualify in the
two-forty class. In response to a
-entle remonstrance from the driver
he amiable beast showed its displeas
aire by removing the dashboard with
a carefully directed movement of the
left hind extremity, making the re
mainder of the buggy an undesirable
)lace for habitation. It becoming
iccessary for Mr. McKittrick to va
:ate he gracefully yielded to the wish
!s of quadruped and described a para
bola through the atmosphere landing

Business Season Has Begun-Mer
chants Happy And People
Prosperity. Sept. 21.-The business I
year has truly begun. Things are not
now what they were several weeks
ago. Ten cent cotton works wonders.
The gins have all they can do from
early morn to dewy eve. The fine
weather has made the fields snowv
white. Cotton pickers are in great
demand. More than 8oo bales were
marketed here during the past week..
Our merchants are looking happy
and serene, for already they are hav
ing a good trade and they know the
signs point to better.
Next Monday is the day set by
Referee H. C. Holloway for taking tes
timony here in Town Hall injunction

centre around that event.

colleges from here this week-some

ATTEMPT TO RAVISH.
Henry Suber, a Young Negro of No.

to ravish. The affair occurred early
Monday morning, on the Fred Har

concerned is a daughter of Mr. Hood
Merchant. It is alleged that shortly
before daylight the young woman
was aroused from sleep by some one
moving in her room who seemed to

touched her upon the face. She im
mediately screamed and aroused her
father who sleeps in a room opposite
to hers. At the first sound the per
son in her room rushed out through
the door into the hall and disappear
ed before Mr. Merchant could reach
the door of his room.
The entire neighborhood was im
mediately aroused and tracks were
found leading from the house of Mr.
Merchant to a negro tenant house
where Suber was found. The tracks
were made by a foot which corres
ponded exactly to that of Suber. He
had on no shoes and the heavy
stockings were worn at toe and heel.
thus leaving an unmistakable im
print. By that time a large crowd
had gathered and afte council it was
decided to let the law take its course
and to send the negro to jail. There
was, of course, some talk of lynch

from all reports the crowd was

belonged to him and which he had
sold to a son of Mr. Merchant. He
said that the belt had been partly1
paid for by the young man but that
he had decided to get it back. -
