iWe propose for the month of December to offer great inducements in all lines of Goods and expect to sell cheaper
than ever, therefore will have to withdraw all premiums on all cash purchases, for ve realize the fact that we are forced
to sell you the goods higher when we give premiums, therefore we will sell goods cheaper and withdraw all premiums.
Our Humble Thanks.
First of all we wish to extend our hearty thanks to the
people of Clarendon County for the liberal patronage they
have given us during the past year. When we look back to
four years ago when our business was started in such a small
and modest war- and look to-day at the vast busineSs we con
trol, we say it is hard for us to realize it, and we can only
thank our friends for it all.
The past year has been a hard one--filled with disap
pointments to us all. At one time it promised much, but all
of a sudden the scene was changed. and upon it was written
disappointment, disappointment : But notwithstanding these
calamities, it is a fact that we are willing to let applear above
our signature that our business has shown an increase durmi
the past year of several thousand dollars over last year's bus
iness, and at the same time some came among us proclaiming
to be the great benefactor of the people and wourd sell themn
goods 20 per cent. cheaper than the merchants who were here
before them. 'ie people listened to this proclamation atten
tivelv and investigated for themselves, and when they came
to buy they did not forget the criginator of low prices, where
rainbow wrappers greet the eye.

THE GOVERNOR NO POLITICIAN.
Governor Ellerbe has appointed
Capt. J. Elmore Martin, ex-chief of
police of the city of Charleston, sher
iff to succeed the late sheriff, Hugh
Ferguson. This appointment has
caused the Newscud Courier to vom
it up a whole forest of epicac, and
during its efforts to get rid of the
bile on its stomach, it admits that
Captain Martin is an honorable ma
and will make Ch:rleston a good ofli
cer. According to the News and
Courier, Captain Martin is a man of
high character, a good clean oiicial
and private racorJ, and will make an
efficient officer, but still his appoint

very, very sick. Well, if (ptin
Martin is as good a man as the N.-ws

political representatives. The good

been accomplished simply by giving

The people of .larleston who are

We are satisfied that before many
months roll around the politicians of
South Carolina will stop preaching to
the nople that the Governor is a
"weakling." Tiey will be forced to ad
mit he is not building feuces for re

Governor's chair to carry out. his
sworn duty as he outlined in his in

Ehe desire for money is a legitimate

hey can and give as little as possible
or it. All such unfairness is practical
obbery. The winner is the robber; the

1 rrencn (1r at Play.
Among us it is not only a woman's
duty to please; she doys it by instinct.
The tiniest girls do it unconsciously.
Just watch them as they walk in the
avenues of our public parks. They have
all the unstudied grace and ease of real
ladies, and, indeed, they fully suspect
that approving eyes watch them as they
skip the rope, for ccquetry, which is
much more subtle and more delicate
than flirtation-less direct, too, in its
aim-is innate with them. They are not
ambitious of winning the admiration of
boys of their own age. They look down
with disdain on such admirers. They
aspire to please big people. In their in
tercourse with little playmates there is
a great deal of ceremony. Nothing could
be more amusing than the manner of a
little girl who, having come to the con
clusion by the general appearance of an
other little girl that she is worthy of
the honor she is about to confer on her,
finally asks her to play at hide and seek.
If some brave young person walks up
to a group of players with the time hon
ored phrase "Mademoiselle, will you
allow me to play with you?" a sharp
and comprehensive glance at once de
cides either the reserve or the warmth
of the reply. Matters would hardly take
a different form in a drawing room in
the case of a more serious introduction.
The gestures, the bows, the little looks,
the smiles, are copies of their mamma's,
and yet they are all perfectly natural in
the sense that they are merely follow
ing their own nature without a trace of
that self consciousness that "puts on
airs" of any kind. This Anglo-Saxon
quality of self consciousness in bLth its
good and bad points is in:apatiblo
with the French temperament.-Th.
Bentzon in Century.
Guernsey is well enough if you stick
fast to the coant line, especially in the

Moulin Huet bay is the noblest nook ci
clif' and reef scenery combined in all
the islands, and the water lane leading
to it was charming even in winter, with
a glaze of thin ice over its unfathomable
depths of mud. The islanders are really
a soft spoken people, well disposed to
ward the stranger, whether or not he is
interested in early potatoes. I wonder
how many times I received the answer,
"Yes, please, sir," when I asked if I
was going right for my destination. The
little girls, though seldom beautiful,
courtesy beautifully, and the little boys
do not-in winter, at all events-pester
for pence. I like the gorse hedges to the
interior roads, and the more when they
glow with blossom and hide the glass
bouses behind them. I like also to see
the calm eyed Alderney cows at tether
in the very small meadows allotted to
them, with magpies flitting over their
horns from hedge row to hedge row.
And, best of all, I like the view of
Berm, Jethou, Sark and their satellite
reefs as I saw them from myv hotel win
low in St. Peter's port at suarise or so.

The Gallery Silenced.
It was not through her singing that
the late Jenny Hill made her first suc
cess on the variety stage. It was through
her splendid power of repartee. She
was making her first appearance at a
small east end (London) music hall. A
rude man in the gallery interrupted,
and the chairman was powerless to
quiet him. Then Jenny Hill stepped
forward. "Let me speak to him," she
said, and, stepping to the front of the
stage, she talked to him for half an
hour. She called him every abusive
name in a singularly rich vocabulary
and compared him to every offensive
thing she could think of. The audience
cheered her to the echo, and the man
slunk out of the room. That was the
beginning of the fame of Jenny Hill.
