The postmaster will take pleasure in prose

that it will be visited upon him.

Lenses." Spectacles or eyeglasses. R. B.
Loryea, the druggist, next to my old stand.
The tobacco warehouse matter is being
talked again and we hope it will not wind
itself up in talk as it did last year. A to
bacco warehouse is a .necessity and it
should be- built. The merchants are the
ones to build it as they tare the ones to be
benefitted. The cost of building a ware
house and that of rranning it is a mere
bagatelle when compared to the amount of
trade it brings to the mnerchants. Don't
let this matter drop, but agitate it until the
work is accomplished. The place to build
the warehouse is at the depot, most con
venient to the buyers, and by having it
there, our farmers wi get what is saved
from draving put on the price of the tobaC
co. Some think that everybody should
contribute towards the building of the
warehouse au:1 that unless all contribute
none shouid. We hope such an idea will
be brushed away by our enterprisin;; bnsi
ness men. Becausd there are d.onss
among us is no reason why the prosperity
of the town should be stifled. A tobacco
warehouse is a business enterprise. It has
no sentiment ab'out it. and if there is a de
sire to capture the trade that rightfully
, .an naturally behngs here. but is goime
ewh'-re for lack of accommnodationis and
a market, our merchatnts who realizes such
a condition will set about at once to rem e
dy the matter for their own interests.

have closed up our school at Reho

We learned the other day that a
little son of Mr. W. N. Coker, of the
Sandy Grove section. was shot from
ambush after dark. the shot taking
effect in the leg. No reason was giv
en for the shooting.
It seems that the Star is anxious to
know what our junior Senator will
do at the Chicago convention this
vear. We can assure that journal
'that Senator Tillman will not be apt.
to abuse his power or influence, but
will be found working for the masses.
It was said during the last campaign
that Tillman would not be noticed in,
the Senate. He (Tillman) said at
Kingstree, "I will make them notice
me, boys," and it seems that he has
received more attention than any
other Southern Senator.
Now. if the free silver substitute
passes the Lower House will "Boss"
Grover sign it ? Well, if he does not.
I would not be in his shoes for his
stockings. Who will be the next
President, Sherman, Quay, Voor -
hees, Hill, McKinley, Stuart, or Till
man. We do not know, but believe
that the next President will be a
free silver Republican.
We are pleased to see that Speaker
I. B. Jones has been promoted. as we
believe him to be a deserving man.
It appears that the Legislature is
doing some active wvork. Well, go
ahead, fellows, the convention left
you plenty to do.
News is very scarce down here.
The dry spell has at last been
broken, the water courses are up.
Measles have somewhat subsided
