Kive Thousands Dollar Bond Issue,
Voted Unanimously for Addition
to School Building.
The people of the Whitmire district
realize the value of a good school. The
school has grown so fast during this
session that more room was a necessity.
At an election on Friday an additional
bond issue of five thousand dollars
was voted to add four more rooms
to the already handsome brick school
building. This will give the district a
$15,000 school building.

Governor's Cousin Kobbed of $275.
Spartanburg Herald, 9th.
E. B. Blease, of Xo. 40.5 East Boule-;
vard, Charlotte, was robbed of $275 at
the Southern railway station last
night. As he was waiting for a northbound
train, with a suitcase in each
hand and an overcoat thrown over his
arm, he was jostled by two men, whom
he thought to be drunk. Upon boarding
the train he found that his pocketbook,
which he carried in his hip
pocket, was gone. As he had only 20 j
cents besides, and his mileage book
was good tor transportation only to
the State line, he left the train and |
notified the police of the theft. The
pocketbook also contained a Richmond
check for $58, on which Mr. Bleasa
has stopped payment. Part of the stolen
money was not his own.
Mr. Bleas-e is traveling salesman for j
a Wiston-Salem tobacco company. He I
offers $100 reward for the conviction
of the thieves.

Is Your Credit Good?
Whenever you ask a merchant In
confidence, for a frank statement of
his ups and downs, and more particularly
his downs, he'll tell you of his
inability at all times to correctly guess
the worthiness for credit of those who
apply for it.
Credit is a good thing. It's needed,
and is one of the greatest developers
of this country. Without credit few
men could make money. It's upon the
other man's money that the successful
man makes his money. To obtain
credit, requires wisdom and energy.
To grant credit requires investigation,
who he is, where he came from, what
did he owe, and his ability to pay his
The Merchants Credit company is
establishing in this and all other
counties, a system of legitimate rating,
determining who pays, who is slow
and who is not. The system is based
upon the individual's own acts, and is
to help both the buyer and seller.
The time lias arrived when the man j
who does not pay his bills promptly, j
in thirty days, if he be a salaried man j
- ill I
or in early fall, if lie be a planter, win,
be denied satisfactory credit. Condi-1
tions have arisen that year by year
margins of profit are being cut, and
the merchant who sells his ?oods, can
not afford a loss. Hence th-ere must
be more energetic efforts made to find
out who pays and who does not.

who will seek to open an account.
Ix>:ig credits, and dragging accounts
will be done away with, and in the
main our community and our people
will greatly benefit therefrom. This
method, eliminating loss in accounts
will enable our merchants ail over the
county not only to sell goods cheaper,
but will educate the public fo a system
for bettering their own condition.
