The City of Sumter Wears a Bustle.
When one goes to Sumter and rides down
Main street he is invariably attracted by the
throngs of people that congregate at a cer
tain place. The inquiry is at once made,
"What is all this bustle about?" The an
swer always is, "The rush to Levi's." l'er
dinand Levi, at the Bogin old stand, is the
place to make your purchases.
Our Sumter kicture.
We were in Sumter last Thursday, and
were surprised to see the large amount of
business done in that city. It is a busy
town. A number of the business firms are
catering to the Clarendon trade, and a glance
at the opposite page, almost exclusively oc
cupied with Sumter advertisements, will
convince the reader that they mean busi
ness. A week or two ago we had a word or
two to say of several of these merchants.
Next week we shall have more to say of five
or six new ones that appear in this issue,
and by that time we shall also probably
have two or three other Sumter "ads" to add
to the picture. We will next week enlarge
our paper, making it one-half larger than
it is, and then we will not be cramped, as
we are this week. But in the meantime
read each one of the advertisements ,care
fully, and note the business ring of them
all. Sumter means business.
The following is a list of our Sumter ad
vertisements in this week's paper:
Ferdinand Levi. R. W. DuBant& Son.
Wilson & Spann. T. C. Scaffe.

.Highest Price for Cotton.
Messrs. C. R & W. S. Harvin
would say to the planters that if
they would consult their own in
terest they would have their cot
ton ginned and cleaned at their
gins. Their gins are in perfect
-order. Also, their new "Munger"
elevator and distributor (the
first and only one in the State) is
now doing its work perfectly,
thereby adding fully 1-4 cent per
lb. to price of cotton. Try them.

W. SCOTT HA RVIN,
We are pleased to state that we now have in store and are daily receiving one f the most
of Merchandise ever brought to the interior. Our stock consists of
All Lines of Merchandise.
Hardware, Dry Goods, Groceries, Crockery,
Queensware, Tinware, and in fact any and all articles and items that the average man or.woman
could want. We have on hand one of the finest lines of Cooks ever brought to any market. We
have in this line of Cooks all numbers and sizes. Small enough for the young man just mar
ried, and large enough for a family of twenty. We have taken great pains this year in the se
lection of our stock of
Fancy .and Staple Groceries,
and all we can say is that we want all the good accounts in town and in the country. We can
and will sell you all the goods you want cheaper than 'ou can buy them, and all you will have
to do to convince Yourself of this fact is to come and see, and you will be convinced that our
stock by far is superior to anything in this section of the State.
We keep no goods but what we buy from first
hands, and all such we can recommend.
Besides this we have abolished the old mode of transacting business. In former years, we
owing to the fact that we like all Americans like to keep up with the fashion and the ways of all
around us, have sold goods too high in order to make a good shoving of assets.
But the writer had a dream. He was in his office, he had ledgers piled high, that represented
thousands of dollars, 3-8 claims out of date, barred by the Statute of limitation, 3-8 barred by
the right of the landlord, and 2-8 barred by the drought and expiration of wind .in the lungs of
old ponies and blind mules. All these amounts kept running on; each year they were. footed
up as assets-a big bubble made, filled with air, and like the boy's soap bubble soon burst, ten
ant gone, account worthless. He had run the tenant in the spring and summer, when naught
was in sight; the landlord took him up when the cotton came in. He awoke, and swore that he
would never follow such business again; that bright as the prospects might be, that armed with
all the wisdom and energy he could command, and closing his ear to the suffering of the past,
He would foreverquit the old mode,and change==
his business to 'something tangible. r
So this year we have done so-we will sell you all the goods you want for credit or cash at
lower prices than you ever bought at before; but let's have some idea when you are going to pay
We don't want any more millennium accounts or notes. We may not be present to collect them
and the banks don't want any paper over four months, and we sincerely trust we will get the'
crop of 1889 out before it comes, for we have one of the largest crops this year that we have
ever had. No introduction is needed, no apology is offered for 1889.
It comes freighted with the wisdom of centuries and each corn crib is loaded with the richest
treasure that God ever gave man. Bread no object and Bacon at the price we are selling, not
one can complain. And all should feel good this year. Let us get out of debt; let all of as:
commence anew, and the prices we are selling any and all lines of goods at to-day, willeon='
vince all that come that some miraculous change has taken place. Well it has.
We Want to Live, and Want You to Live' }
nd we therefore shall try and please all in prices and goods, and we want to build up in Maa
ing what Clarend~on County needs, a first class store where you can get what you want andare
n need of at a living price, and in order to convince youi of this we must ask you to come ad
ee. Yes, crops are magnificent this year; cotton bringing bette rices than for years
s get out of debt, and w -~ a cash basis. I am e he
nducements that any merchant can e r. Come o
