Trial Justice Timmons held a prelimina
ry yesterday, in the case of the State against

tery with intent to kill. The prosecution

Thames and Mr. A. C. Briggs were both
seriously hurt. The defendants were bound

both of this place. This union had its ob
stacles in the shape of opposition on the
part of the bride's parents. and romancing
was resoited to. At a given sign'l the'
bride leaped over the garden wall, joined
her lover, and both skippedl by thie light of

Advertising pays, and those that engage
in it know it. Mr. Jake Prodovsky has an
advertisement in the MANNING Thas, and
his business has grown to such proportions
that he has found his old stand, the iron
store, too small for his large stock and in
creasing patronage. Realizing the necessi
ty of meeting the demands of his people,
he has moved into one of the handsome
brick stores with plate glass fronts, where
he proposes to have a fine display of goods,
and make a strong and steady pull for the
trade. Mr. Prodovsky is a business man,
youngjful of energy, and competition has
the effect of making him double his eftorts
as is seen by his recent move.

Set is House on Fire.
Last Suday afternoon the people living
in the neighborhood of the Baptist church
were startled by several reports of a pistol
in the house occupied by the family of Mr.
Willie Butler, and a few moments later
some ene cried fire. Warden Mouzon who
lives in the next house rushed out of his
house to ascertain the cause of the disturb
ance, and found Mr. Butler in a state of
liquor frenzy with a pistol in his hand de
fying people to approach. Mr. Mouzon
took in the situation at a glance and saw
that it was useless to rushrupon the man in
his frenzied condition, so he summoned
help as soon as he could. In the mean
time Policeman R. H. Davis arrived and
rushed into the house, and dragged from it
a burning bed that had caught on fire from
Mr. Butler's pistol. As soon as lhe put the
fire out he took charge of Mr. Butler and
placed him in the guard house where he re
mained until night when after sobering up
he was allowed to go home nipon payment
of a forfeit of ten dollars,
The favorable impression produced on

The store of Mr. A. C. Briggs, of Silver,
was burned last Saturday night, about one
o'clock. The fire is thought to have origi
nated in one of the back rooms. When dis
covered it was too late to save anything, the
cterk, a Mr. Andrews, barely escaping with
his life. The building and stock of general
merchandise were insured for S:2,4.. Dr.
Henderson is said to have also lost' several
hundred dollars of medicines that were
stored in the building.
