BURGLARY AT MOLLOHON
Bold Thief Enters Wilson's Store,
And Carefully Fits Himself
On Tuesday night Wilson's store, at
the Mollohon, was broken into and
several articles of merchandise were
stolen, by a thief who made good his
escape. The robbery was a bold one,
and the perpetrator of the deed show
ed considerable skill and nerve in his
mode of operation.
The putty from the edges of one
of the panes o.f window glass was
carefully removed, and the glass was
displaced without breakage. Through
the hole thus made, measuring only
io by 14 inches, the burglar climbed.
He was an exceedingly particular
person, for he lighted the lamp,,
placed it behind the counter, and
tried on many pairs of shoes before
he seleced a pair of sixes. To his
wadrobe he also added a shirt and a
pair of overalls. The cases in which
the pocket-knives were displayed were
disarranged and several knives pilfer
ed, exactly how many it was not pos
sibe to determine.
From certain obvious clues it is be
ieved that the thief will be located
W. H. HUNT OF NEWBERRY.
A Splendid Gentleman Who is Very
Popular in Anderson.
Hon. W. H. Hunt, of Newberry,
speht several hours in Anderson yes
Mr. Hunt presided over a term of
court here several years ago as spec
ial judge and captivated the people
of the city. The lawyer admired him
for Hs ability and knowledge of the
law, and the people generally ad
mired 'him for geniality and courtly
manner. He is always warmly wel
comed when he comes to Anderson.
And Mr. Hunt admires Anderson.
While he was here yesterday he kept
talking about the many improvements
that had been made since his last vis
it. "This is undoubtedly a fitie town,"
he said as he turned the leaves of the
pamphlet issued a few weeks ago by
the chamber of commerce.
A Needed Enterprise.
Mr. Rowland G. Spearman has es
tablished an office much needed for
some time in Newberry, an agency
that will buy rent or sell land, that
will negotiate loans *on real estate
Through this agency one may rent
or purchase a house or cottage in any
portion of the town, or a store on
man street, without being subjected
to the wvorry of having to hunt all over
the town for a place satisfactory. Tt

One of the questions agitating the
minds of our farmers is how much
less cotton shall I plant this year than
last and how much less fertilizers
shall I buy. One farmer told me he
would plant 4o acres less. This is
a question in which we are all inter
ested. Shall it be c,ut down one fourth
0one third are ape half. This is what
the cultivator says "Cut down our
next crop o.e half. This will settle
the question at once and in the best
manner. Only let us exhibit the same
zeal and energy in cutting our area in
cotton whch~ we have always display
ed in trying to increase the yields and
cotton will go to ten cents within
three months. Let every individuali
farmer begin to cast about pruden
tly for other lines of profitable agri
cultural products." There are many
undeveloped lines that can be made
to pay a good return on the invest
ment. In talking with an ac
tive and progressive young far
mer last Saturday he told me he sold
$38.o worth of millet seed last year
and had a quanity for sale again this
year. He was sellng them at $16.oo
per ton and peavine hay at $20.00 perI
ton. 8o cents and $1.oo per hundred.
We saw on his book quite a number
of orders and he had plenty more.
This young man had also made 86
bales of cotton and had sold 50
a good figure. He was not making
cotton his only chrop but was work
ing more in proportion out of his
grasses and peavines than out of his
cotton. This is what one has done.
Are there not others who are doing
equally as well?
