The town of Greeleyville was thrown into
excitement by the attempt of a negro
named Grant Keels to commit an assault
on Mrs. Gest, a white woman about 80
years of age. T1he fiendish attempt was
made about two miles from Greeleyville
and wats frustrated by the cries of the old
ady, r.in to her rescue her daughter
and Mr.Bradshaw. The negro had
thrown his victim down, but hearing others
approaching, ran off and made good his
escape. It will not do for the scoundrel to
be seen anywhere in that section again.

When the Confederate Veterans met in
Charleston recently, among those who par
tcptdin the festivities were five Brad
hami brothers of this county. They had
their photographs taken in a group and on
their return home Captain D. J. Bradham
turned one of the photos over to Artist
IGoldberg, who transformed them from min
iature to life size. The picture now adorns
the wvalls of the sheriff's office and it is as
ine a piece of work as we nave ever seen.
Artist Goldberg certainly excelled himself
with the Bradham brothers and we know
this excellent specimen of his work will in
duce others to have the pictures of their
loved ones enlarged.
Bad management keeps more people in

time, A prudent and careful man will keep

Editor THE TIMEs:
The battalion is still at Shandon and
ikely to remain here for some time. This'
time last week we were certain that the
>oys would have the honor of dining with
the President ere this. The major is still
in hopes that we will be a-signed to Gen.
Butr's command: the men, too, are very
anxious to be under him. Just as soon as
the battalion is complete we will get orders
and not before. There are niow 5'7 recruits
that have passed the examination and 65
more ready to be exatmined. This comn
pany will be mustered in witha the required
nmber, 1006. There is no teiling who will
be the commissioned officers. You may
talk about politicians, bat those seeking
these positions beat them ten to one.

The city is very anxious for the govern
ment to make Colombia a place of rendez
vous for about 30t,000U troops. How can she
expect to get it, when our first regiment
and battalion could and cannot get from
them a place with sufficient wvater for drink
ing and bathing purposes and a place large
enough to drill on? The battalion would
ot be so anxious to leave if the merchants
would take enough interest in them by
furnishing the prop~er imptlemenotts for
a drill ground and a pool to bathe iti. It
is to their interest to keep ua here as n
as posible. None of them will deuy tht
their sales have increased. Then whyi not
keep us here and furnish those things
which are so much needed?

-Now, let us compare the ManIuing

Mllnning dispenisary. purchases,

The following statements cover the
years 1597-!8, to June 1st, inst:
Purchases. 1897. Br k'ge.
First Quarter... 4 *.485 03 15.42
Second Quarter.. 41,161 10 17.75
Third Quarter ... :,;;8 65 22.45
Fourth Quarter.. 5.si02 !11 :'0.05

Purchases. 11,. Br'k'ge.
First Quarter.... :8,621 61 21.75
a y ............. 9:5; W .:5
Total.. ...... ... . i.1 1 :7.11
Breakage,little over 7-10 per cent.
Breakage occurs in the following
ways: In transit from State dispei
sary to county dispeinsary. during
which transit each case is handled
six or eight times, and as the hand
ling by railroad hands and drayien
is extremely rough it is to be expee
ted that the breakage item will be
large. Then, after reaching desti
nation and is opened 111, a change in
temperature from hot to cold or from
cold to hot, will cause die loss of sev
eral bottles that break from expan
sion or contraction as the case may
be. Then, again, a bottle of beer or
ale or porter will blow out its cork
and the contents be lost. All of this
goes to swell the item of breakage
which is eharged to the expense ac
count and is deducted from the prof
its that go to the town and county.
From my five years' experienee as
dispeiiser I don't think that break
ige, as Mr. Haselden says, should av
Crage over 1 per cent. The average
with the Manning dispensary. as
showin by statements above, is less
than per cent.
