SHOT DOWN IN STREET.
Young Lawyer Meets Tragic End in
His Home Town-Slayer Sur
Dillon, June 14.-Sidney Hursey, a
young lawyer, of this place, was shot
three times and mortally wounded as
he left the court room here this aft
ernoon by Richard S. Davis, who,
with his wife, runs the Central hotel
here. Davis, immediately after the
shooting, gave himself up, and the
only explanation he gave of the trage
dy was the statement that Hursey
had ruined his home.
Hursey was an unmarried man and
was the son of a merchant in Dillon.
Davis was raised near here and is
When court adjourned this after
uoon Hursey left the court house and
rossed the street towards Evans'
armacy. Just as he stepped upon
e sidewalk, he was met by Davis,
o fired three shots in rapid suc
sion, two from a double-barreled
rringer and one from a 32-calibre
olt's. One bullet took effect a little
above the back of the left ear and
another in the right lung near the
collar bone. The third shot, the doc
tors state, entered the same lung or
else went wild.
May Have Trial Promptly.
Slocitor Spears this afternoon said
that if the grand jury finds a true bill
against Davis at once the case may
be tried tomorrow. Neill Arch Mc
Lean, a lawyer of Lumberton, N. C.,

Montreal, June 13.-Between 20 and

Some of the walls had to come

THE CARE OF THE DRNKING
Clemson Extension Work.-Ar
Health is of first importance in al
occupations, since it governs th
ability of the individual to do work
The progressiveness of a communit;
is governed by its healthfulness, an
this healthfulness is measured large
ly, directly or indirectly, by the pur
ity of its drinking water. Almost ou:
entire rural population and the in
habitants of a majority of our smal'
towns get their supply of drinkinj
water from springs or from shallov
wells. It is to call attention to th(
often improper surroundings of thes(
sources of drinking water that thi
article is written.
The principal diseases supposed t<
be communicable through the drink
ing water are typhoid fever, cholera
dysentery and other diarrhoea] affec
tions, cholera infantum, animal para
sitic diseases, enteric fevers and
scarlet fever. Of the diseases men
tioned typhoid fever, cholera, dysen
tery, cholera infantum and scarle
fever may also be carried by milk
enteric fever and typhoid by flies
and typhoid by raw oysters and rav
[ruit. In order that the water sup
ply or any of the other agencies men
tioned may carry these diseases it iE
arst necessary for them to become in
fected with the specific infectior
which communicates the disease. Thi
infection of all of the sources men
tioned except mosquitoes, is derive
rom the ejecta of a patient suffering
Erom the disease.
It is a fact proven by statistics tha
the water borne diseases begin to in
,rease in July and are at their maxi
mum during August and September
lecreasing in October.
The Spring-The ideal condition,
Eor the spring are that its watershed
is uninhabited, that the watershed
loes not contaiti stables, barnyards
pig pens, privies, cesspools or ceme
.eries; and it should not be traversed
by railroads nor highways for all o:
these make infection possible. ThE
reedom from all of these objections
is not always obtainable. The spring
should be ditched around in such a
way as to carry off all of the s.urfacE
water, both during a downpour o:
rain and from ponded areas, and nev
er allow it to be overflowed and fill
ad with filth or trash of any kind. ThE
surroundings must be scrupulous13
:lean. The spring itself should bE
walled with rock and covered, to pre
rent trash from falling into it.
The Well.-Too many of our welli
ire located in the barnyard, in ordea
:hat water may be convenient for thE
stock, 'regardless of sanitary 'condi
ions. The source of the drinking
water for the family should be re
Enoved from any such possible dan
;er of infection.
The well should be located on a
well drained area, remote from barns
pig pens, privies, cesspools, ceme
:eries or drains, and should be ce
nented from the edge outward to thE
listance of several feet. Above thE
surface of this cement, a tight bos
hould be built and a tight fitting
sover provided, if buckets are used
Phe pump is much to be preferred tc
:he bucket because -it lessens thE
langer of trash falling into the well
all waste water should be drained ofi
and no water allowed to spill bacil
nto the well. No puddles should bE
dlowed to form nearby in which hogs
night wallow. The hog is a greal
gatherer of filth, and by wallowing it
i puddle which drains into a well
:here is great danger of infection.
Deep wells, properly protected t<
prevent an inflow of surface watei
at the top, are to be preferred t<
aither shallow wells or springs, es
pecially in the southern part of this
tate. T. E. Keitt,

I'rip From New York to Philadelphis
Made in One Hour and 57
New York, June 13.-Char'es K
Eamilton arose from Governor's Is
and in an .aeroplane this morning
and sped, without a break, 88 miles
to Philadelphia, in a successful cross
country flight under the auspices o:
the New York Times and the Philadel
phia Public Ledger. He made th<
rip in one hour and fifty-one minutes
eaving Governor's Island at 7.35 anc
landing at Philadelphia at 9.36.
Alighting at the aviation field, hE
lelivered letters, from Governoi
Fughes and Mayor Gaynor, to Gov*
arnor Stuart and Mayor Reyburn; ac
3epted messages of congratulatior
from them to bear in return, anc
started for New York again, with on
ly a brief intermission for food, fue
id oil. He had flown approximatel.3
i0 miles of his return journey, wher
a sluggish motor drove him to de
ler was broken there in landing, but'
after repairs had been made, Hamil-i
.ton resumed his flight at 6.20 and
landed at Governor's Island at 6.39.
Thus the return trip was made in one
hour and 36 minutes, at an average
speed of 54.96 miles an hour, which
breaks the record made in the Cur
1 tiss flight from Albany to New York.
That Hamilton did not make the re
turn trip as easily as the outgoing
' trip was due only to an omission of
I haste. He neglected to clean his!
- spark plugs; they fouled, the engine
- balked and he had to come down on
cthe banks of the Raritan river, two
- miles above South Amboy.

in Richland and a $2,000 decrease in
Those acquainted with the situa
tion in the State are of the opinion
that the decrease in the sales of the
dispensaries has been caused by the
increased shipments by express from
tojvns outside of the State and the in
crease in the number of illicit deal
ers, or an increase in the business of
the illicit dealers.

Every Woman Should Bead This Ad
vice and the Generous Offer
That Goes~ With It.
The number of diseases peculiar to
women is such that we believe this
space would hardly contain a mere
mention of their names, and it is a
fact that most of these diseases are
of a catarrhal nature. -A woman can
not be well if there is a trace of cat
arrh in her system.
Some women think there is no help
for them. We positively declare this
to be a mistaken idea. We are so
suire of this that we offer to supply
medicine absolutely free of all cost
in every instance where it fails to
give satisfaction, or does not' sub
stantiate'our claims. With this un
derstanding, no woman should - hesi
tate to believe our honesty of pur
pose, or hesitate to put our claims to'
There is only one way to overcome
catarrh. That way is through the
blood. You may use all the snuffs,
douches or like remedies for years
without getting more than temporary
relief at best. Catarrh in general is
a diseased condition of the system
that shows locally most frequently in
discharges from mucous membranes.
Local treatment should be assisted by
internal treatment for the general
diseased condition if a complete cure
is to be reached. That internal treat
ment should be scientifically devised
and faithfully administered.
Rexall Mp.cu-Tone is scientifically
prepared from the prescription of an-'
eminent physician who for thirty
years made catarrh his specialty.
This remedy is admirably adapted to
the .treatment of the catarrhal all
ments of women. It purifies and en
riches the blood, tends to stop mu
cous discharges, aids in removing im
purities from the system, soothes,
heals and strengthens the mucous
tissues, and brings, about a feeling of
health and strength.
