PULI'HES ALL COUNTY AND TOWN
MA'NN ING. S. C.:
WEDNESDAY. JAN. 10. 1900.
An. Important Change.
After due consideration we have
decided to retire from the grocery
business and hereafter conduct a
first class Dry Goods store in every
sense of the word. We are fully con
vinced that this town and commu
nity needs a first class Dry Goods es
tablishient, and hereafter we will
devote our entire time and energy to
the Drv Goods trade.
In addition to a full line of Staple
and Fancy Dry Goods we will carry a
full line of Ladies', Gent's and Chil
dren's Shoes, Gent's and Children's
Ready-Made Clothing. Also a large
line of Gmnt's Furnishing Goods,
Hats and Caps.
Our Millinery Department will be
conducted upon a much larger scale
than ever, and in connection with
the Millinery Department Mrs. Bar
field will conduct Dress-Making.
Mrs. Barfield is too well known to
the ladies of Clarendon and other
counties for us to say anything about
her ability as a fine dress-maker.
After February 15th Mrs. Barfield
will be found at our store.
We have jnst gotten in 7,000 yards
of Tobacco Bed Cloth and offer it to
the trade at 2e per yard. Also the
largest and cheapest line of Plow
Shoes to be found in this town.
When you want Dry Goods of any
ki Ad call on us.

Recently the Greenville News published
the statement that Rev. W. E. Wiggins,
Methodist pastor at New Zion in this coun
ty the past year had died very suddenly,
just as he was about to move for his new
work in the upper part of the State. The
Southern Christian Advocate took notice of
the statement, and paid a nice tribute to
Rev. Wiggins, giving him a pretty little
obituary and saying many pleasant thiugs
about him. It has since turned out that
the Greenville News was mistaken, and
Rev. Wiggins not only lives, but goes to
his new work with good spirits and we
suppose quite pleased at the many pleasant
things that were said about him. We con
gratulate brother Wiggins upon living to
read his own pleasant obituary.

The county board of commissioners met
last Saturday. and by request Senator
Appelt and Representatives Richardson,
Woods and Jones met with them, in order
that matters in general pertaining to the
county's affairs might be discussed and the
delegation familiarize themselves with the
the county's needs. Commissioners Owens,
Turbeville and Felder have run the affairs
of the county on business-like princi ples
the past year, and they expect to be able to
pay every dollar of its indebtedness. Con
siderable routine business was transacted,
and among other things it was decided to
discontinue farming on the poor farm and
allow Mr. Steadham, the superintendent,
the use of the place for distributing rations
to the inmates. There are now very few
inmates at the poor farm. Upon the whole
Clarendon county's affairs are in as good
condition as they h'sve been for many
years. The old indebtedness is gradually
reduced every year and under the
management of the present commissioners
the credit is good, where cash is not paid
down for all that is bought.
J I Bevry, Loganton, Pa, writes, "I am
willing to take my oath that I was cured of
pneumonia entirely by the use of One Min

The Rev. James McDowell, a few week's
ago, tendered his resignation ats pa'3tor of
the Presbyterian Church here, but at a
congregational meeting the members de
clined ro accept the resignation. Mr. Mc
Dowell bits insisted upon its being ac
cepted. and at a special meeting ot Har
mony Presbytery held in Sumter last week
his relationship as pa'stor of this church
was dissolved. Rev. McDowell has for forty
two years been pastor here; the only pastor
that this church has ever had, and is loved
and revered by all who know him, regard.
less of denomination. As a valliant soldier
he has served fatihfnlly. Last Sunday he
preached his farewell sermon, reading
from the mintes of the Presbytery an ex
tract announcing the official action of that
body in dissoiving his pastoral relations,
and in the congregation there were few
ees that were not shedding tears. Should
h'e accept work elsewhere' he will carry
with him the best wishes of this entire
community, and abould it mean his retire
ment from the active ministry he has the
prayers of all good people for many years
of peaceful rest, until he is called to re
eive the reward in store for all such faith
ful servants of God.

rhere was some excitement at Pinewood
Sunday and Monday and it was thought by
some that negroes who were incensed by

Magistrate Raiin sent the frllowing tele
gram to Governor McSweeiey:
"His Excellency, Governor McSweeney:
"Please send by earliest express tweuty
five repeating rifles and a thousand rounds
of cartridges. Send at once. I am respon
sible. I must have them.
"A. P. RGINr, Magistrate."
Governor McSweeney had no authority
to send out rifles that way, and telegraphed
to know the state of affairs. Sheriff Brad
ham was the proper party to be informed
as to any trouble,-as he is the chief execu
tive of the county, and as the Governor
had heard nothing from the sheriff he did
dot send the rifles. He got a statement of
the condition of affairs at Pinewood from
Representative H. B. Richardson, who ar
rived in Columbia Monday, and held him
self ready to instruct the sheriff in case any
trouble should arise, and call out the niili
tia if necessary.
Sheriff Bradham s..v, he has heard noth
ing further of any trouble at Pinewood and
he expects matters are quiet there.
Conductor Hursey has since been grant
ed tail in the sum of two thousand dollars
by Judge Buchanan. The bond was im
me.iately given and be was released and
returned to his home in Florence.
It was rumored that there would be trou
ble at Pinewood on Tuesday and that two
or three prominent citizens were to be
lynched, and in consequence Governor
McSweeney ordered the onuter Guards to
be in readiness to proceed to the scene of
the trouble at any moment. In the mean
time Sheriff Bradham was in tonch with
the Pinewood authorities and the Gover
nor, and had eight or ten well selected men
ready to accompany him to Pinewood at
any moment. Latest accounts say that
everything is quiet at Pinewood.

Headquarters for the Celebrated Palmetto Brand of Cylinder, Planing
Eng~ine Ols and Grase.
AT THE GINNING
Of this present year we wish to thank our many friends and pat
rons for the very magnificent manner in which they have remembered us
in the past. We will continue to try and merit their confidence by watch
ing the market and buying goods at such prices as will enable us to sell
them at prices prevailing in other commercial centres. As our whole atten
tion is given to the Hardware business, and having thoroughly informed
ourselves on the subject, we are often able to get prices on such goods im
possible for the gene:-al buyer. This advantage we always turn to the ac
count of our patrons.
Our Spring Stock has partly arrived and is daily coming in, and we are
enabled to offer such goods as
Orangeburg Sweeps, Turn Shovel Plows, Dixie Boy Plows
and Castings, Plow Lines, Backbands, Collars
and Collar Pads
at prices that will surprise all.
