Office forme.rly oeupied
It .By D)r. D. L. BoL.r,
Wl)en I came home last, year it was
my purpose to sell 'The metts place''
then and still occupied by Post
master. Chas. J. Purcell, and ''The.
Brown place,'' then occupied by
Messis. M. L. Spearman and
Frank R. Hunter and now by
Senator Cole L. Blease nl Mr. T.
Griff Williams and put, the net,
amount in my 'business at the store
and increase my stock accordingly.
The first difficulty I met. with
in disposing of the property was I
could not give possession, the leases
not expiring until the summer and .
fall of this year. About the time the
leases were to expire I notified the
parties living in them that I wanted
possession of them at the expiration
of their leases, as they were now for
sale and not for lease. I had several
offers to buy which I accepted, but
those who made the offers failed to
get the money to comply with the
terms of the sale. I indulged some
of them until October 1st and
others until October 17th and
then rather than sell them for from
five to seven hundred and fifty dol
lars less than they cost and fifteen
hundred dollars less than they are
worth, I wit bdrew them front sale,
and have leased them for something
like the rental. The cost of them would
justify me in leasing for and holding
and instead of selling this real estate
and enlarging my business here I have it
decided to go out of the buiness, pay
upi my obligations and then do some
thing that I have reason to believe
will pay me better without a dollar his
of capital invested than I can make 06.
with several thousand dollars invested
in the store here. I prefer to give my r.
customers who are the best friends I
have in Newberry county the benefit.

open for an offer to purchase tile en
tire stock and to lease the store sub- -.h
ject to the approval of my landlord
to tihe expiration of my lease, August
31st, 1908, anld it is the best opening
*in the city of Newberry for an exclu
sive line of mcin's clothing, shoes, hatsd
and furnishing goods, and my retir
ing from business is no indication that
do not believe that the b)usinessI
could not be miarle to pay reasonably
for a number of years more than
thirty-five hundred dollars a year net
without alny investment, it is. diffi

My stock is thle best of the kind in
Newberry and includes many ne0w fall

did not decide to consider the mat.te:
of retiring from lbusinlnss until I hlad
