Great Damage Done to Those Who Per
sist in Dlenandini High Prices.
The con mereial .whirligig of Manning
was set in motion last i'hursia by l rviu
& Barron, and some of the other merrchan:s
on our -Broadway" i"iught the inspiration
and joined in to make things lively. Etriy
in the morning the front, of the stores b
came imitation oriantal bzars, the siie
walks were filled with goods and the awn
ing braces were converted into Langig
places for all kinds of wartes. To aitiiet
the attention of tle passerby, yellow, red
and green streamers we:e ilying in front of
these stores where "special sales" were be
mng offered. Harvin & Barron were the pt
cneers in this special bargain basines, bat
the ever disturbing lacket man was hit
with the-exeiteiuent and he, too, proclaitm I
"special bara:us.' Jeukinson, at the ol h"r
end of the block, put out a "nigger" with a
bell, another unigger" with a drum, another
"nigger" with a transparency, and with this
combination of noise he orga.,ized and put
into execution a street par-ade, directing
people to his store, where he was going to
give them never-before-heard-of-bargainis.
All day long crowds of people from every
section of the county wre in town tking
advantage of the opportunities to buy goods
cheap. and, it the merchants tell the truth,
the cash sales of the day excelled any pre
':ous dav of the season. It was a dv of
hugtling,and the store that oifered the big
gest bargains sold the most goods, tat it
proved what enterprise can do. H:avii &
Barron, determined to start this mioveme:t..,
they advertised their intentions. The re
suit was, it broutght great crowds to town to
spend money, and as another result, a most
active competition set in by those other
merchants who saw the opportunity to sell
These young merchants certainly have in
stituted more progressive ideas here, and
young active, energetic, up-to-date blood
has been infused into our commercial
veins. Thcse merchants who are chging
to the old order of things will either have
to renounce them or get out of the way, be
cause these young fellows have caught the
idea that smuiber prenits bring larger sales.
The ild tity per ceut. profit manner of do
ing basiness is being forced off the bus
nes track and the w:nner now must come
to the small profit ra,:ket. The people who
have the money to spend take the newspa
pers and in this day of getting almost noth
ing for their produce they are compelled to
spend their cash where the most can be ob
tained for their money. The question then
to a business man is how to reach the peo
ple, and offer them such inducements as
will attract them.
The man with the cash in his pocket is as
indepencient as a wood sawyer. He does
not, after he has raid his lien, feel under
obligations to spend his cash at the same
place unless that merchant will sell him
what he wants as cheap as he can buy else
where. He picks up his county paper and
reads where another merchaut is offering
goods so much cheaper than he was paying
all the summer, when his waole property
was ti d up in a z.ortgage, and as soon as
he pays off his debt, like a prisoner treed
fro:u bondage, he seeks the place where tne
most advantage is given him. Human na
ture is the same the world over, and people
are going to throw aside all sentiment when
it comes to spending their money. No man
is going to give a merchant more for goods
because he had a lien with him in the sum
mer, when the other merchant will sell him
for less; these young merchants realized
this. They did not do a lien business the
past summer, and, of course, tae leading
public cannot score against theni "summer
prices " Therefore they th:nk they have
an advantage and whether it is imaginary
or real, they are trying to convince the pub
lic through the county paper and over their
counters. It is quite common to bear these
new merchants talk to their customers in
this way, "I bought a very heavy stock and
my bills must be met. I must sell these
goods with or without a profit; they cannot
stay on these shelves" Then a very telling
argument now .being made is, "TIhis is a
cash store and I cannot afford to carry over
my goods to force on people who are com
peled to buy on credit in summer. The
credit man is not satisfied with a small
profit because he can carry over his goods
and make his lien customers take wh'. be
chooses to let them have. If a lienor in te
month of June wants a linen duster and
his merchant has carried over a lot of over
coats he can force off the ordicoat and the
lienor cannot help himself." It is real
funny to stand around and hear what is
told "in order to push goods off. Every
scheme and device is resorted to to create a
demand for goods,and the old-time quiet,
conservative manner of doing business has
tae"' up its quarters at the cross roads
shot.s as the push, vim, thrift and enter
prise of the town has sent it into hiding.
The practical object lesson exhibited in
this town last Thursday of how business
must be doing made some of our less push
ing merchants stand in their front doors
with their hands rammed away down in
their breeches pockers, smiling with one of
Brete Hart's grins; their faces warie looks
as if a surprise party had struok them and
inwardly they manufactured maledictions
upon the heads of their wide awake com
petitors. Let the ball roll, nobody wilt be
hurt except that hard-headed set who will
not more along w~ith the procession of pro
gress, and if they will persist in standing
in the way they will have to take conse
quences if the small profit juggernaut
crushes them out of existence.
Thbe Fellow That Looks LIke im.
Some fellow was in Charleston last week,
got himself fiiled up with "red eye" and
proceeded to '-do the town." He got tan
gled up with a vile creature in the Tender
loin district and when pulled he represent
ed himself to be one of our citizens in order
to shield his own identity. Mr. Pouncey
of this county was not in Charleston last
Wednesday-. Here is what the Sun day
News has to say about the affair:
'-A man fromn up in Clarendon county,
namied J. 31. Pouneey, and Bertne Shea, a

will be a hot one if some unforseen event
does not turn up which will cause the miii
to be called off. The bone of contention is
either three or five dollars, Pouncey can't
say exactly which. The Claren don man
had the woman arrested yesterday morning
on a charge of swindling him out of a unoal
big pile of change. Pouneey says he be
lieves B3ertie ileeced him out of five dollars.

My stock of Underwear is complete and the cheapest I ever saw.
E I can sell you a nice wool Shirt for 50c. I keep the Wright's
Underwear-the best that is made. You can't find it any
where else in town.
n There is no end to them. I can sell you a Hat from 25c. up to $3.
I have ten dozen Hats, Alpine shape, which I sell at $1. All y
who have bought them say they are the best hats they
have ever seen for the money. So when you come to town M
and want a Hat come in and look at my line and I am sure
you will buy before going out.
C I have the largest line of Shoes that I have ever had, both ladies' =
and gentlemen's. It is useless for me to say anything about _
this ware; everybody knows that I keep the best shoes in
town. If I sell you a pair of shoes and tell you they are ,
good and they prove not to be so, bring them back and I
will make it good.
Well, I cannot leave the ladies out; I must tell them something

our Bargain "Sales Day" were more than pleased.
"Ou ~auu BrgallDay" Thxsy
Come One and All,
And we will give you inducements never offered before.
We Still Lead.
Our store was crowded with our friends begging for
those 79 and 89c Shoes.
While the drums were beating and the bells were ring
ing we could not wrap up those Shoes and big bar
gains in Dry Goods fast enough.
Some went out rejoicing, while others were grumbling
because we could not serve them all.
New Goods are coming in daily and we put such a low
price on them they don't stay with us until we get
them placed on the shelves.
We will give another Special Sale on Shoes
on the first Monday in November, as all of our friends
asked us when we were going to have another one of
those special days.
Don't fail to see us before you buy. We mean to sell
goods at prices to suit the low price of cotton.
