Retrin fro th
th When I came home last year it was
my purpose to sell ''The metts place''
Ir' then and silt occupied by Post
lie master Chas. J. Purcell, and ''The
es- Brown place,'' then occupied by
Messrs. M. L. Spearman and
Frank R. Hunter and now by
re Senator Cole L. B.hase and Mr. T.
-riff Williams and put the not
ne amount in my business at the store
and increase my stock accordingly.
The first difficulty I met with
Oil in disposing of the proporty was I
Ist could not give possession, the leases
not expiring until the summer and
he fall of this year. About the time the
he leases were to expire I notified the
lie parties livilig inl them that I wanteI
ie possession of them at the expiration
lie of their leaes, as they were now fo
lie sale and not for lease. I had several
n ofTers to buy whiclh I accepted, but
t mse who made the offers failed to
get the moiney to comply with the
as t,ims of the sale. I indulged some
of them until Oetober 1st and
on others uintil October 17th and
ith Oin rather than sell them for from
live I I seven hundred and fifty dol
a lars less than they cost. and fifteen
s hundred dollars less than they are
ts worth. ! with-drew them f'om sale,
1aid hve leased them for something
like the rental. The cost of theim would
ist justify ine in leasing tor and holding
amid instead of selling" this real estate
lierd 1n: inm my husiniess here I have
ie decidwl to !o out. of the buiness, pay
m) ily chli:. ations and then do some
r, thin.- that I have reason to believe
lie will, pay ie better without a dollar
on jof capital invested than I can make
Se with several thousand dollars invested
01% in the store here. ' prefer to give my
ds customers who are the best friends 1
ht have in Newberry county the benefit
of my stock at manufacturers' cost
with 'only the expense of selling added
and I will until further notice offer
th ' my entire stock of at least fifteen
to thousand dollars ($15,000) as follows:
All summer elothin- and Iwo piece
"# Isuits antd pants and all summer um
p* derwear anld low cut shoes at mann
factiuers' cost, .1 losing the freight
aind expense of selling. All mens',
boys' and children's clothing, pants
and overcoats, men's, women's and
childrens shoes, hats, men's, boys' and
childrens' fall underwear, men's fur
nishing goods, shirts,. collars and
cuffs, umbrellas, suit cases, in ,
fact everything else in the store at
manufacturer's cost to me,'with ten
per ceint added to pa~y the freight and
expense~ of selling them to you. I am
.open for an .offer to purchase the en
tire stock and to lease the store sub
n, ject to the aproval of my landlord
to the expiration of my lease, August
131st, 1908, and it is the best opening
in the city of Newberry for an exclu:
us sive line of men's clothing, shoes, hats
and furnishing goods, and my retir
ing from business is no indication that
I do not believe that the business
could not be made to pay reasonably
well, but when a man has been making
ng for a 'number of years more than
xt thirty-five hundred dollars a year net
30 without any investment, it is diffi
of cult to satisfy him with much less
E. with several thousand dollars in his
rt. a buisiness, especially when he has rca
yson to believe that he can do so again.
lie My stock is the best of the kind in
3e- Newberry and includes many new fall
goods in the store and others to ar
rive, for which I have invoices. As 1
a(lid niot decide to consider the matter:
gof retiring from business unt il I had
swithdrawn my real estate from sale ,
en and released it, after it had
[7. been withdrawn and while -I was in
ial .New York last week I was wired an.
no offer foi' the Pnrcell place, approving
.the lease and naming the amount it
I. could have 1,een- bought for i.p to the
time it was withdrawn which
offer I declined. The sale
anwill begin tomorrow, Octob
.er 30th, and continue until the stock
is sold at retail or in bulk to some one
who would like to purchase and con
tinue the business. I have indulged
a few of my friends during the sum
mer and I would now appreciate hav
ing them close up their accounts as I
n'eed the money.

Dr. Henry E. Jacobs Distinguished
Theologian and Author Will
Dr. Henry E. Jacobs, of Philadel
phin, Dean of the Lutheran Theologi
ca! 'Reminlary of Mt. Airy, near Phil
,adelphia, who was in Columbia on
Wednesday and who delivered an ad
dress at Ehenezer Lutheran church,
the occasion being the celebration of
the anniversary of the nailing of the
Ninety-five Theses on the door of
the church at Witteniberg, by Martin
Luther in 1517, will visit Newberry
today and will deliver an address in
the chapel at Newberry college at 12
o'clock. The student body will at
tend and the cilizeus of the town aie
especially invited to be pr-esit.
Dr. Jacobs is one of the most pro
minent and learned theologians in
this coilit i-y an1d it will be quite a
treat to hear him. Dr. Scherer do
si'es that as nany1v of tle citizenls ot

Address by Dr. Mayer.
We thank )r. 0. B. Mayer for a
printed copy of his address before
the Pee-Dee Medical Society. Dr.
Mayer was chairman of the South
Carolina Medical Association and
stan(ids in the foremost rank of the
medical fraternity, in South Carolina.
Dr. Mayer spoke on "The Medical
Society and its benefits to the medi
cal profession.'' We have read this
lecture with much interest. 1)r. May
or is evidently in love 'vith his pro
fession. He says: "I would rather be
the discoverer of the cure for con
sumption than to be the hero of Wat
erloo, or the victor of Port Arthur.''
The study of medicine is a great pro
fession, only second to that of theol
ogy. The one ministers to the wants
of the soul, the other to that of the
body.-A.. R. Presbyterian.
