-LETTER FROM OUR SLMTER
To The Ilanning Times.
Sumter, S. C., Sept. 23:-There were a
gosul many bales of cotton brought here
and sold yesterday owing to the slight
advance in price, paid by merchants over
- the prices paid in other niarkets; such as
the marketd of Camden, Mayesville, and
several others I might mention, and from
the prices paid here for cotton yesterday
I tbink-the. merchants have about come to
an agreement that they will have to offer
more than other markets in order to secure
otnat.sh'ould be sold in this market.
Youmlagespondenlt was around about the
stores anUlst week and Monday and Tues
day of this week and could see nothing of
any special interest to your subscribers
except the progress made by The Diamond
ad..t hin their Fall Openizfg Sale the
gave you-in my last letter
to you. The day before this immense
slaughter of Dry Goods, wagon loads of
- 'oods were received on every train and
those who did not get to this sale may have
gomdiman-to envy the lucky purchasers
of thbiSimter's- Biggest Bargain House.
A go6d many of the things sold struck me
to be remarkaybl cheap, in fact. everything
was way below what same goods could be
gotten for elsewhere. They havelstill a
largo quantity of cotton goods on hand,
having bought.beavily before the advance
and.theprice will continue the same as
price sold during the opening sale. In
boes the price-will remain the same also,
they having bought for cash a large quan
tity of every variety and if the quality of
the shoes are in proportion to the price
theyre ILK Well I must close will have
more to say next time.
Let every one put aside facttonal
*oities and all go to work to make
dngs'hum in a business way. It
wllbe a plaanter and more profit

-S. A. RIGBY.
Do our readers remember reading a
the-e columns anything from Samuel A.
- thejollveuerchanlt on the- corner?
.w~esith us again this fall and this
tiee hsbrouighthis knitting along and
has promised to stay." He has one of the
best equippe establishments in town and
a orp ~bf hadsome and polite clerks as
you is if find anywhere in the State. There
is little Mitch, whose smile is as beam
ing as the noonday su, and there is Bill
Trescott, whose head is as level-as a dice
and as slick as a ribbon. Venning is a
splmudid fellow and no man in the county
heflatter-footed understanding than he.
cj~oa captivating young gentleman.

* 63oulook inbis eyes for his country friends.
E rtoniRigby,bhei8sson of the old man,
~i when he peeps over the railing on his
desk1 it is business up to the hilt with old
man Sam behind him holding the hilt.
Well; Rigby's store is not a skating rink
nor is itan ice cream garden, but it is a
first-class up- to-date general merchandise
gisore, where everything you want is kept
and if by accident he happens to be out ol
an article it will be gotten for you as quick
as steam and electricity can bring it.
Rigby sells everything to everybody and
'eveg bedy's money to him is as good as
~erybody else's. Mr. Rigby is a merchant
who 4)as made a grand success of his busi
ztessend he did not do it by sitting on a
sturnp and wait for somebody else to drop
success into his mouth. if the had, he would
have been sitting there yet, if the pressure
*did not move him and the stump did nol
emnplain. When you come to town go tc
see Rigby -and he will show you the siglt
in Hogani's Alley.
Aiother example of thrift anj
energy is the old land mark Moses Levi,
He baspenlt a life in the mercantile busi
ness aund his name has gone fortir over the
entire country 'as a successful business
. man. 'Did his success come to him by
keebing his..goods stuck away back into
his shelves so that no one knew of theis
exi.mance until they accidentally dropped
into his store or was it by the remarkable
push, pluck and perseverance displayed by
him. Mr. Levi wants people to know that
he sells goods of all kinds and he regards
his c~unty papei- the best medium in which
to give the people the information. You
never see any checker playing about hit
store, but you do see a crowd of experienced
salesmen busy from morning until night
measuring, weighing and selling from his
immensely) assorted stock of everything a
man, woman, or child can use. Does ta
sell cheap? go to his s'tore and see the clac
oT~people making large bills, that will tell
the story more than .human tongue. G.
into his lot and see the sun burnt fact s ul
the honest,aarme~rs unloading the baleb o:
cotton and without a question it tel's a
stoy n interest every man who has a bhl
of cotton sel. Moses Levi may not be as
vonng in body as he was forty years ago,
but the vigor of his former days is with
him yet, when it comes to a business trans
action and the ynng man undertaking to
cope with him,will feel pains in the back
while the old man is smilingly moving the
pea on a six hundred pound bale of cotton.

were not the case this wotid of ours would

B. Loryea the expert pharmacist and drug
gist has as thorough a drug busiaess as is

chock full of business. but becomes in
fatuated at the sight of a dollar whether

but when a silver dollar is handed him his
countenance brightens as though it was the
peoples money, and he being after the peo
ple's business and they give him their
money he feels satisfied that they have value
received from him. His store is always
supplied with the freshest medicines and
his prescription department is under his
personal management entirely.,i, Loryes.

W. E. JRNKINSON.
Every year the progress of the town is
seen by the thrift displayed by its - mer
chants, a town without good live, pro
gressive merchants has a sleepy air abput
it. and the spirit is as cratainagtig . as
a dreaded desease in an infested country.
How is the progressive spirit shown by the
live merchant? It iq shown by thorough
advertising of his business. He lets the
people with whom he wants to do business,
know that he does not depend on what
others are doing to draw trade to 'him, but
that he goes out to seek the trade. Such a
merchant is W. E. Jenkinson and when
ever the Times is read his advertisements
ra read. We need not say that his busi
ness was built up through the columns of
t'e Times for the facts speak of itself.
Jenkinson does an immense btisiness., be
cause he keeps a large stock, well. bought
and properly handled. Go into his store
and you will always find his clerks, male
and female busily engaged with customers,
and to prove that advertising has a - great
deal to do with his success, it is..a common
sight to see merchants who will not, adver
tise sitting in front of their places of busi
ness playing checkers or whittling whil
Jenkinson is busy dropping the coin. into
DR. W. M. BROCKINTON.
Among our advertisers is Doctor W. M.
Brockinton. He keeps a well supplied
stock offirst-class drugs, toilet goods, jew
elry and eye-glasses. His prescription
desk is presided over by Dr. LeGrand, who
filled a similar position in drug stores in
larger towns. and he has the reputation of
being an expert. Doctor Brockinton is
located in the center of the business block
andbesides his extensivepractice be devotes
a great deal of his personal attention to the
imrovement of his drug business, which
is increasing day after day. Manning's
drug stores which advertise in the Times
certainly do the busmnes of the town, hence
their goods are constantly being sold which
necessitates their ordering fresh goods
