A Candidate From Newberry.
There are people in Laurens city
(1 county who are taking an inter
in the candidacy of Capt. M. M.
iford for Sheriff of Newberry counSomehow
or other Newberry
mis to he nearer to Laurens than
es any other neighboring county,
yway, and there are always, it apars
to us, more people here from
wherry than from any one of the
icr sister cities in the circle. But
that as it may, Captain Buford,
5 active, energetic and able sheriff
Newberry county, is well known in
urens, and his fine reputation oxuls
all over the State, reaching far
yond its borders.?Capt. Buford
is one of "the famous war boys,"
d he has proved his bravery since
; election to the ofiicc which he now
Ids, and on all occasions shows his
ness for the posifion. A case of
b right man in the right place is
lingly shown in this instance. Capt.
iford helped his county when most
needed help, during the dark rcnstruetion
days. He was in the
dst of the Kn Klux Klan excitemt,
and was the only man from
iwherry county that was tried in
o United States court for taking
o part of South Carolina against
b radical, scalawag and carpetbag
d renegade hordes which inflicted
r State. He suffered for Carolina
war and reconstruction.
In a large measure Newberry's fine
ofiff is like "Uncle Sam"-?when
oe lie gets on the ?rack of a fngie
there is no letting up; criminals
ly :is well surrender to "Uncle
in and Marsc Buford" and save
