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
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 E
manner and kinds of General Merchandise at prieces
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
public demand, and we ask that you come to Sumter
and inspect our stock.
That we are in touch with the exporters of cotton
and we can and will pay the very highest market
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.
IWill Sell and Do Not Propose to Carry Over
Any Fal Goods.
With such a condition of affairs, the business man is
put to his trumps to study out the most effectual way of
meeting the'people andl sharing their burdens, to~ remedy
the bad effects caused by any turn in affairs which op
crate adversely to the people. It is unnecessary to im
troduce myself to the readers of The Times. they kno~w
me. and thiey know full well that my many years of ex
perience, both as a farmer and a merchant, give me a de
eided advantage over many others. I have used myv ex
perience that it may count for the best interests of my
business. In doing this I had to study the needs and
and wants of my patrons, studying their condition as
wvell as their welfare, because upon their welfare de
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 must
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 anywhere, and I am going to
do it. A visit to my store will convince any buyer that
my immense stock has been selected with the greatest
care, and contains everything that can be used in the
family, or on the plantation.
There is no store in this section of the State that has
a more varied assortment of Foreign and Dome. ic

ALL DEPENDS ON THE WEST.
Eastern Democrats Undecided as to
Whom They Will Support.
BIRMINGRAM, Ala., Oct. 14.-Hon.
Joseph J. Willett of Anniston, who
achieved fame in the cast by his "long
talk" before Tammany on July 4, last,
I and who has been in close touch with
the eastern Democrats since that time,
was in the city this mo'rning. In an
interview regarding the position of the
eastern Democrats, Mr. Willett said:
i"The Democrats of the east are quies
cent at the present time, but they are
not sleeping. It is a waiting period. If
the November elections in the west, Ne
braska, Iowa and Kansas, result in vic
tories for Bryan and free silver, and the
east, as in Maryland, continues to go
Republican, it will be apparent that
Bryan is the only choice of Democracy,
and the east will fall in line and take
its mecicine without delay.
"If, on the contrary, the November
elections in the west-Kansas, liebraska
and Iowa-result in a victory for the
Republicans. while Maryland swings
back into the Democratic camp, the
eastern Democrats will feel that there is
again a possibility of reorganizing the
old bond between the east and the south,
and one may hear of strenuous effort on
the part of eastern Democrats to nomi
nate a man on a platform that will itand
some chance of a victory at the polls.
"It largely depends on the result in
the west. If it is shown that Bryan
has no influence in his own home and
among his own people, while the east
returns to Democracy, the eastern
Democracy will attempt the endeavor to
again cement the south to the east and
return to first principles. If the west
goes for Bryan the east will acquiesce
in his nomination."
