We cannot understand why the law a
gainst all peddlers is not enforced in this
county. There is a law on the Statute
books requiring a license for pedling and
the parties who go frcm honse to house
with a small lot of merchandise are requir
ed to take out the license, but parties with
droves of horses and mules are permitted
to go from point to point and no license is
required of them. It is not just to thus
discriminate. We call attention of the
county officers to sections 1451-2 3 and 4
of the general statutes.
Garden seed, all varieties at R. B.
While in Sumter last Friday, we were
very much gratified to hear several mer
chants speaking highly of the quality of
goods that is being manufactured by tbe,
Manning hosiery mill and they propose to
patronize this industry. Mr. Harvin de
serves great credit for his undertaking and
he also deserves the congratulations of his
fellow-citizens for erecting in our midst a
ronument to his public spirit. This en
terprise is a permanent fixture and the ex
ample set by Mr. W. Scott Harvin should
be an incentive to others to go ahead and
start ot! er bread winning industries.
If you would have a fine garden buy your

Whenever you see a merchant constantly
before the people in his county paper, you
may put that man down as a hustler. He
knows the value of'advertising and every
time you read him he" disproves that worn
out yarn. "we give our patrons the benefit
of our :advertisements by selling goods
cheaper." It is an established fact, the
merchant who advertises liberally usually
forces those whio do not advertise to either
follow where they lead or depend entirely
upon selling goods at lien prices. The
advertiser is the one who hunits bargains
for his customers and it is he who is satis
fied with small profits.

former citizens or Clarendon, and when it

out Dr. King's Kew Discovery for Con
snmption, Coughs and Colds. Experi
mented with many others, but never got
the true remedy until we used Dr. King's
New Discovery. No other remedy can
take its place in onr home, as in it we have
a certain and sure cure for Coughs, Colds,
Whooping Cough, etc." It is idle to ex
periment with other remedies, even if
they are urged on yon as just, as good as
Dr. King's New Discovery. They are not
as good, because tHis remedy has a record
of cures and bssides is guaranteed. It

Next Tuesday and Wednesday nights,

be the beautiful military play, "Captain

there will be used in this instance, and we
doubt if the large stage of the Academy,
which has seen some very large scenie pro

it will when "Captain Dick" is produced.
The Monaghmn Hose Co., under whose aus

their crowning effort. The cast is made up
from the very best local talent, and the en
