SUMTER, S. C.
In soliciting a continuance of the extensive pat
ronage we are enjoying from the people of Clarendon,
we wish to inform the trading public that our buyer t
has recently returned from market and was fortunate
enough to make his contracts before the recent
"boost" in prices.
We are prepared to supply the trade with all
manner and kinds of General Merchandise at prices
to defy competition and at the same time give to the
buyer the quality.
Foreign and Domestic
Dry Goods, Dress Goods,
Fancy Goods, Clothing,
Shoes, Hats, Gent's
Furnishings and Groceries.
In all of these lines we propose to satisfy the A
public demand, and we ask that you come to Sumter
and inspect our stock.
and ananw E
That we are in touch with the exporters of cotton
and we can and will pay the very highest market ri
prices for the fleecy staple. Our store has earned a
reputation as headquarters for farmers and we pro
pose to keep it up.
Goods Are Cheap.

With such a condition of affairs, the business man is s
put to his trumps to study out the most effectual way of :A
meeting the people and sharing their burdens, to remedy
the bad effects caused by any turn in affairs which op- 0
erate adversely to the people. It is unnecessary to in
troduce myself to the readers of The Times, they know
me, and they know full well that my many years of ex
perience, both as a farmer and a merchant, give me a de- li
cided advantage over many others. I have used my ex- B
perience that it may count for the best interests of my '3
business. In doing this I had to study the needs and es
and wants of my patrons, studying their condition as
well as their welfare, because upon their welfare de- to
pends my success. Every business man, to keep up r,
with the progressive spirit now pervading this country u
must study the markets just as a lawyer or doctor must
study his books. This must be done or he cannot buy a
his goods to meet competition.
I have made deals by which I can sell goods at prices
that cannot be duplicated anywhere, and I am going to a
do it. A visit to my store will convince any buyer that a
my immense stock has been selected with the greatest
care, and contains everything that can be used in the
family, or on theplnai.
There is no store in this section of the State that has 2
a more varied assortment of Foreign and Domesticp

First came the police boat Patrol, q
rhich was the apex of a wedge spread- ii

'he steamer Sandy Hook, having on cc
ard the mayor and representatives of
ie city of New York, with standards M
f the city flying from fore and aft k
tasts, steamed alongside the Olympia, Y
ie flagship of Admiral Dewey, on the w
rt side. it
After the Olympia came the armored w
Ipiser New York, the flagship of Rear h
.dmiral Sampson, with her big turrets w
ad guns appearing like a moving
rtress as she followed in the wake of ac
xe admiral's ship. The Ohicago brought si
p the rear of the column. Following
ie New York were the two firstclass V
ittleships Indiana and Massachusetts.
In the rear of these modern engines F
war came over 300 vessels of all sorts
ad sizes. There were sidewheelers,
ropellers, electric boats and every kind
icept a sailing vessel.
The procession moved without a hitch 0:
ad at 2:30 p. m. the Olympia reached it

lEAL'S SHORTAGE PAID UP. e
;ondsmen of the Colonel Send In
CoLUMBI, S. C., Sept. 30.-The short
ge of Colonel Neal, so far as his three "I
ndsmen are liable, has been paid. A
olonel Wilie JTones, cashier of the
arolina National bank, sent the attor
ty general his check for $937.47, and c
.H. Haltiwanger and W. Scott Pope, h
t other bondsmen, did likewise.
This pays for the money and articles ci
:tually misappropriated by Colonel T
eal. The total amount charged against ti
olonel Neal is $11,600, but the Caro-g
na bank cashed worthless notes for a
in of the amount and bears the loss. fA
The action of the bondsmen in pay- y(
ig the amount Colonel Neal was found g
ort will not help him in the criminal c<
cosecution which is to be brought t]
gainst him, but on the other hand it 3
akes the case against him all the ri

Len is an acknowledgement of his mal
