troduce myself to the readers of The Times. thley know 0

perience, both as a farmer and a merchant, give mec a de- ~
cided advantage over many others. I have used my ex- N
perience that it may count for the best interests of my
business. In doing this I had to study the needs and
and wvarts of my patrons, studying their condition as ja
wvell as their welfare, because upon their welfare de- it
pends my success. Every business man, to keep up
with the progressive spirit now pervading this country
must study the markets just as a lawyer or doctor mlust ;:
study his books. This must be done or he cannot buy
his goods to meet competition.
I have made deals by which I can sell goods at prices
that cannot be duplicated anyvwhere, and I am going to G
do it. A visit to my store will convince any buyer that
my immense stock has been selected with the greatest a

lina and Georgia, now the Southern
railway, against the American Tele

involves the question of rights of way
along the line of the railroad.
Judge Townsend decides that the
temporary restraining order heretofore
issued against the telephone company
be continued until the bearing of the
case upon its merits at the approaching
term of the Orangeburg circuit court.
The telephone company had filed its

a special act passed at the last session of
the general assembly.
Under the code the defendant has 20

brought a proceeding attacking the con

an injunction. Judge Townsend granted
a temporary restraining order and issued
a rule against the telephone company
