the business reverses of Mr. E. C. Horton,
whose stock of goods was seized by the
sheriff under a chattel mortgage. We have
known for some time that uniess there was
a great improvement in the cash saies, Mr.
Horton would be unable to meet his obli
gations, but there is this much to be said
that while he was unable to realize the
money for his goods his creditors will not
be heavy losers because the stock if taken
at its value will pay off the indebtedness.
Mr. Rorton's failure is not the result of
bad management or extravagance ~ tit is
entirely due to the stringency of we times.
We sincerely hope he may soon get his af
fairs satisfactorily arranged.
B,,,,h, ,The Kind You Have Always Bought
The February term of General Sessions
opened last Monday with his Honor James
Aldrich upon the bench. After the usual
preliminaries Jadge Aldrich delivered a
charge to the grand jury which should be
reproduced in this issue but the writer de
pah upon another to take it down and
was disappointed. We will say, however,
that it was one of the best legal addresses
we have ever listened at from the bench.
Every detail of instruetioa was given to the
jury in a clear and comprehensive manner.
Judge Aldrich is a fine lawyer and one of
the best judges in the State. His decisions
are received by the Bar throughout the
S:ate with high regard.
Captain A. M. Brailsford was selected
foreman of the grand jury.
Solicitor Wilson gave out his bills as fast
as he could get the State's witnesses before
The following are the true bills:
Hosea Scott, burglary and larceny.
William Davis, burglary and larceny.
R. Thomas Harrington, bastardy.
John Thomas, burglary and larceny.
Bossie Bailey, receiving stolen goods.
Wade Ward and Cornelia Bryant, adul
William Martin, larceny.
Hosea Scott pleaded guilty to burglary
and larceny; sentenced to five years in tne
William Davis pleaded guilty to house
breaking and larcenv; sentenced to six
months on the chaingang.
The case against John Thomas was tried
and not concluded until yesterday morn
ig; verdict, guilty, with recommendation
to mercy; sentenced to five years in the
True bills were brought in the cases of
of John Lawson, rape; Scipio Rhame and.
Robert Pearson, murder; Dianah Hlarvin
miurder; Warren Thomas resisting an offi
er; August Johnson, Placedio Johnston,
Clairsay Johnston and William Johnston,
riot and assult.
No bill in the case of John F. Richard-I
son, using abusive language to a State dis
1he case against Robert Thomas H~ar
rington, charged with bastardy, took up the
balance of yesterday, a great deal of inter
est was manifested throughont this case as
the parties are white and well connected.
The testimony on the part of the prosecu
tion was pointed and clear and that of the
defenso was a total denial of all the mate
rial allegatiotns. Verdict; guilty; order to
place defendant under a bond to pay $25
er year until the child is 12 years of age.
The following were arraigne-l yesterday
upon the charge of murder: Scipio Rhame-,
Robert Pearson, Dinah Hlarvin, William
Mr.S. M. Youmans waived arraignment.
The trial of M1r. S. M1 Youmans is going
on as we go to press.
Later-In the case of S. M1. Yonmans the
jury returned a verdict of "not guilty."

Panola, S. C., Feb. 27, 1899.
apt. D. J. Bradham.
Dear Captain: I am in receipt of yours
in reference to the important matter of
Oiarendon doing her whole duty in assist
ing the old city in her big undertaking of
nrnishing entertainment for the indigent
veterans who may enter her hospitable
gates at the approaching reunion.
When we remember the fact that nigh a
undred of our camp accepted their free
entertainment last spring on the occasion
>f the reunion, it is peculiarly obligating
that our camp and county shoild make a
generous and hearty response to her appeal
for aid. Charleston proposes to divide the
honor and credit of her magnificent and
stupendous hospitality as shown on this
cCasion with the entire State. It there
Fore behooves us as a people to see to it
that the proud Palmetto's reputation for
princely hospitality, for a warm, refined
and courtly entertaitiment so proverbial in
her past history be maintained most glo
riouslv on this occasion.
On the last meeting of our camp I noti
fied the members that I would call a meet
ing the second or third Saturday in April
to arrange for our trip and make out a roll
>f -those intending to attend the reunion,
and to elect delegates to the same; and also
particularly requested that each member
bring one of his finest sugar-cured hams to
>e delivered you for shipment.
I am sure every member who had the
good fortune to go with the camp last
spring can never forget the generous wel
ome and kind treatment given them; and
assure them one and all that the gates of
he old city are again open for their cor
ial reception and similar kindness. I
have, by an experience of thirty-three years
s an officer in the volunteer troops of the
Sate, learned that naturally and reason
bly more is expected of an officer in all
matters of -contributions than a private. so
[ will, as an example to my brother officers,
lead off with a gift of several of my heav
iest and sweetest hams and will deliver
hem to von at that meeting. Any other
ticles given, such as butter and eggs.

our dear ones suffer while awaiting the ar

of fine Spring Millinery, something to suit everybody.
We regret to announce that our Miss Beckham, who has served
us so long and so well, is with us no more. We wish Miss Beckham

Our Millinery Department will hereafter be in charge of Miss
Lydia Coppedge, a lady who comes to us highly recommended and
who has had some eight years' experience in the millinery business.
We have every reason to hope that Miss Coppedge will fill this
place with credit to herself and satisfactory to our patrons. Ladies,
we speak for a portion of your patronage in this line, as we propose
to have our Millinery Department as attrEctive this season as ever.
We wish the farmers to know that we carry a large line of all
kinds of Heavy Groceries, Farmers' Supplies, and can furnish them
in bulk as cheap as any jobbing house in the country. Rice, Sugar,
Coffee, Lard, Bacon and Flour.
We have in stock several thousand pounds of Plug Tobacco and
will sell it by the box to farmers as cheap as they can buy it in
Charleston or anywhere else they may choose to buy it.
We have just gotten in ten bags.of Green Coffee which we offer
in 25-pound lots and over at 10c per pound; smaller quantities at
12tc per pound. You will find this to be one of the best bargains
ever offered in this town for some time in Coffee. We also have a
very nice lot of Green Coffee on hand at 9c per pound.
Remember that we have gotten in a car of Rice Flour for feed
ing stock at 30c per bushel, cash, or two bushels of Rice Flour for
one bushel of corn in exchange. This is an excellent feed for
horses, hogs and cows.
Farmers, when you want to buy your spring supply of heavy
Groceries, give us a call; we will save you money.

He's moved; you will find him in store under Opera
House. You can't miss it; just look up for the city clock
and he's right under it.
His stock of Shoes is full, and if you go there, he sells so
cheap you'll really be glad "cotton is low.''

practical Shoemaker, is with him.
