CALLED FOR PENSION. .
Of Mrs. Marcella Swartz, Who Died
Last December-Mr. Goggans
Wanted Certificate - That.
She Was Living.
Last week a man who gave his1
name as J. J. Black, .claiming to be
from near Remberts in Lexington
county, called on Clerk of Court Gog
gans and asked for the pension of1
Mrs. Marcella Swartz, who was on
the roll of pensioners for Newberry
county. Mr., Goggans asked Mr.
Black if Mrs. Swarts were living andI
he replied that she was unless she
had died since he had left home that!
Mr. Goggans then inforhied Mr'.
Black that it would be- necessary for
him to get a .certificate from two dr
more citizens, whom Mr. Goggans
knew, certifying to the fact that she
was still living and that she had
authorized Mr. Black to call for her
pension. When informed that this
would be necessary, Mr. Black polite
ly bade Mr. Goggans good-morning,
and has not returned for the pension
roney of Mrs. Swartz. -
It so happened that Mr. Goggans
b.ad seen the notice of the death of
Mrs. Swartz written by her pastor in
the Lexington Dispatch and he had
utcut this notice out and had it pin-'
ed to the check for Mrs. Swartz.
It is possible that by not deliver
ing the check to Mr. Black, Mr. Gog
gans saved him from committing for
gery by endorsing the check.i
