This heading means a great deal. for it is no easy task to per
feet every department of an establishmer.t like ours, to handle the
volume of trade that we have every reason to expect will be ten
dered to us this season. September so far has shown a very lib
eral increase over the corresponding period of last year, and if
"Coming Events Cast
Their Shadows Before"
THIS PROMISES TO BE
OUR BANNER SEASON.
It is indeed gratifying to note the unusual increase in the vol
ume of our business, and to say that we appreciate the confidence
reposed in us, gives but a faint idea of our feelings. We regard
the interest of every person that does business with us as ours,
and will do everything in our power to protect them.
We cannot give away gold dollars for ninety cents, no reason
able person expects that, and wherever you find a merchant offer
ing staple merchandise at less than cost, his object is to attract
you to his store with a view of selling you something the value of
which you are not familiar with, and make up his loss on the lead
ing article, as well as a comfortable profit on the other items.
Nothing of that character will be tolerated in this store; we de
spise it. Our business is based upon a legitimate percentage of
profit, and that figured on as close a basis as is consistent with in
telligent merchaidising. It is true, we sometimes sell goods at
and below cost, but that only occurs at the end of a season, or
when we have erred in buying something that did not prove to be
as good a seller as we expected, oi bought too freely of certain
lines, then we make our Loss as quickly as possible, for experience
has taught us that the first loss is always the lightest. Our ambi
tion ought to be satisfied for we are said, by those who are in a
position to know. to be
The Largest Retail
Dealers in the State.
And while we might be satisfied to remain just in the position we
.are, that would be practically impossible, we must go backward or
forward, and our mercantile pride will not permit of a backward
.step, and each year will find us in the front rank, seeking new
felds, new customers, and keeping fully in touch with the spirit
zand progress of the city in which we take such pride.

Farmer Medders Surprised.
There's a raft o' fellers comin'
With a lot o' soil and seeds
Jest to give the honest farmer
Information that he need
Tie.y are comin' for to tell us
How to reay and how to sow,
How to hold the plough correckly
An' the way to swing a hoe:
They will teach us. so I gather,
Everything we think we know
Gosh all fish-hooks:
They're Derfessers from a college.
An' they're tourin' on a train
Well ' well'
An' they're goin' for to lecture
on the inwardness o' grain
For it seems we don't know nothin'.
They've discovered with alarm
That our ways ain't scientific
An' have done a heap o' harm,
So they'll kindly tell us farmers
How we ought to run a farm
They will X-ray for the cutworm,
An' inockerlate the ground
An' they'll vaccernate the corn crop
With a serum they have found
An' they'll make it variegated
Fit for hog or broom or pop,
An' they'll train the wheat, I notice,
An' the Lord knows where they'll
When they're through experimentin'.
Well. I'd like to see the crop
I swan to gimlets!
All efforts have failed to find a better
remedy for coughs, colds and lung trou
bles than Foley's Honey and Tar. It
stops the cough, heals the lungs and
prevents serious results from a cold.
. N. Patterson, Nashua, Iowa. writes:
"Last winter I had a bad cold on my
lungs and tried at least half a dozen ad
vertised cough medicines and had treat
ment from two physicians without get
tingany benefit. A friend recommended
Foley's Honey and Tar and two-thirds
of a bottle cured me. I consider it the
greatest cough and lung medicine in
the world." The R. B. Loryea Drug

The Rext Legislature And Prohibition.
ditor The Mannine Times:
In the course of a few weeks the Leg
slature of South Carolina will convene
L its accustomed annual session, and it
is surmised by some, that during the
ession there will be a. sweeping prohi:
ition act passed, and by a stroke of
tatesmanship of this kind the people
>f South Carolina will be put on notice,|
hat in the future they must not touch,;
aste or handle john barleycorn or any
>f his substitutes, but for any beverage
[n the future, they will meet no moles
ation whatever in gratifying their
orn thirsts with Adam's ale.
The next Legislature may be suflici
nty deficient in wise statesmanship
for all we, on the most at least, to pass
n act of wildcat legislation, as an act
af prohibition will prove, in the free
ivh'ite man's primary election the last
Tuesday in August 1906.
Not a great while since a correspon
ient of the News and Courier, after
canning the horison of the next Legis
tture, seems to think the Pzrohibi
tionists will have the stacking of the
cards in their own hands, and among
themselves, will be dealt all the trump
ards and the game will easily be won.
Correspondent .has singled out two
members in particular to be right and
left bowers in the expected coming
crusade against the Dispensnry, and
think the two singled out, will be
heavyweight champions in the fight
that is expected to come off, and these
advantageous additions in behalf of
Prohibition will be certain death to
the Dispensary. Correspondent's hopes

and 'Ns expectation to see so much
good accomplished along this line for
the cause of Prohibition, carries with
it, a good deal of amusement, for one
of the members he has singled out goes
from Clarendon and he was elected on

priary election held.
During the last county canvas, and at
all the county campaign meetings in

We believe correspondent has calcu

who worked alongside of its author last Winter.
says : "I read your - Danger Signals' with much
interest. It is a pity that such information as
it contains copld not be properly impressed upon
the youthful mind. Then manhood would be
improved and many of the nervous disorders
which now d.,t would disappear.''
The People's Recorder, Orangeburg, S. C.,
says of it : "We regard it the brightest jewel
for youth coming before our notice."
Mrs. Electra Mershon Craig. Editor of The
Southern Poultry Courier, Waycross, Ga., says
of it : "It is indeed an excellent., well written
work, and shows much intense thought on the
part of the author.- He relates his experience
for the benefit of others, who by following his
teaching will escape many snares and pitfalls."

There is much truth and good advice in the little

Mr. Herman Zadek, Manager Gonzales Book

Right Rev. Ellison Capers, Protestant Episco

Mr. Benn Pitman, the well known phono
grapher. says -It contains much useful advice
which young people must know and live to be
healthy and happy," but he does not want the
girls to read it, and yet girls are entitled to the
knowledge which only Danger Signals imparts.
--Danger Signals " also contains the author's
analysis of the Fourth Commandment, showing
that it has never been comprehended, even by
the Jews, and that it is equally a violation of it
to labor at night as on the Sabbath, and that
not a living soul is properly observing the com
mandment relative to the Sabbath.
Of "Am I My Brother's Keeper ?" Mr. Thomas
Jefferson LaMotte, a leading South Carolina
