A Second Warning.
Some weeks ago we gave warning
with regards to Commencement Dresses
The commencement season is appro
aching near, we again warn you that

to get ready for commencement. If you

we have in stock a large line of White
Goods, suitable for commencement
dresses; also a nice line of Val Laces
and Embroideries in match sets to trim

to show a greater variety of White
Goods than we are showing this season.
Ladies, you will be doing yourselves
great injustice to place your orders for

The uew pastor of the Presbyterian
church. Rev. A. R. Woodsou, is a

promises to be a successful effort to

held by the Bank of Manning and due
May 23rd. Mr. Woodson has stirred
up his membership, and he is winning
sympathy from outsiders. Up to date
he has raised -330N, and the other
81700 must be raiseJ by the 23rd. Any
contribution from Iriends will be great
ly appreciated, not only by the pastor,
but by bis congregation. It is a worthy
cause and it is deserving of support.
A Mistake Corrected.
It is a mistake to combine in the same
remedy both stomach and liver medi
cines, because the stomach is not al
ways out of order when the liver is, or
vica versa. While it is true that these
organs are so closely related that when
one is affected the other is likely to be
also, still there are times when one is
affected and the other is not. It is a
serious error to giva a liver medicine
combined with a stomach meGicine
when the stomach only needs treat
ment, and it is not necessary to treat
the stomach when the liver only is dis
ordered. Rydale's method is the most
sensible one. He does not combine the
two, but makes a tablet for the stomach
and a tablet for the liver, which can be
combined if necessary. Guaranteed by
Dr. W. E. Brown & Co.
The Breach of Promise Suit-Verdict Against
The much heralded breach of prom
ise suit came on to be heard in the In
stitute hall last Thursday evening, and
there was assembled a large audience,
from the town, and the surrounding
sections As an entertaining and
financial scheme it was a success. The
stars of this drama were two of our
most prominent young people, Miss
Gertrude Bradham and .J. Harry
Lesesne, Esq. The witnesses for the
plaintiff were Mayor D. M. Bradham
her father, Mr. H. H. Bradham her
brother, Mrs. F. 0. Richardson, Capt.
I. I. Bagnal, and Dr. W. M.
Brockinton. The witnesses for the
defendant were Mrs. C. E. Wilkins,
Miss Nina Riser, Miss Jessie McLean,
Mr. W. E. Selby and Mr. Louis Ap
pelt. The jury was composed of six
married and six single ladies, Mes
dames A. Lefi, F. C. Thomas, W. C.
Davis, J. W. Rigby H. H. Bradham,
A. I. Barron. Misses Celeste Hughson,
Louise Scarborough, Julia Snrott,
Bertha Briggs, Margie Appelt, Hattie
The officers of the court were: Maj.
Abe Levi presiding judge, A. I. Bar
ron clerk, J. L. Wells sheriff, H. H.
Bradham court crier, Wylie Hodge,
George W. Williams, T. C.
Howle and Jake Iseman bailiffs. Mr.
Lewis Woodthe circuit court stenog
rapher reported the case. The attor
neys for the-plaintiff were W. C. Davis
and S. Oliver O'Bryan, for the defence
Charlton DuRant and J. McS., Woods.
The suit was for 50,000 and the sev
eral witnesses gave testimony which
brought forth salvos of applause,
Sheriff Wells was entirely unable,
even with the often repeated remon
strances by His Honorto keep the audi
ence from disturbing the proceedings.
The jury also gave the court a great
deal of trouble. He was constantly
threatening them with a rule for con
tempt, some of them would be looking
over a fashion magazine, others would
be inspecting their lovely faces in their
hand mirrors which they had in their
possession, others would be whisper
ing, especially if the witness testifying
was a woman: no doubt these whispers
were adverse criticisms of the witness'
hat or dress, some would be eating
candy, and horrors, there were some
who were chewning gum. Miss Ger
trude Bradham, the plaintiff was the
first to take the stand, and she made
out by her testimony, a powerfully
strong. case of the "chicken flying the
coop" and its consequent disappoint
ment. Miss Bradham's manner was a
splendid piece of acting, and her re
plies to the questions in the direct and
cross - examination were so realistic
that if the case had been "the real
thing" the effect upon a jury of men
would have been- conclusive. All the
way through her testimony she, told a
story of her happiness when the
plaintlff honored her with his proposal,
how happy she was through his court
ship, and then recounted In a dramatic
manner how the blow of disappoint
ment fell upon her when his attentions
became ch'lled and finally froze. A
big laundry basket full of letters was
put in evidence se but some of the love
missives the defendant sent her, she
exibited a solitaire-her engagement
ring that she had not yet returned
hopingr he would yet return to redeem
his promise. She recounted her trou
bles, her sleepless nights, loss of appe
tite, told of her aching heart, all of
'this amid sobs, and at times hysterical
laughs, and then in response to a ques
tion from the defendant's lawyer, she
replied in a most thrilling and emo
tiona] manner which electrified the
audience. "I would see him in Sum
merton first." At another period
when counsel for defendant undertook
to entrap her by reading a letter teem
ing with love, that he had gathered
from among the mass of letters in the
laundry basket, which did not bear the
signature of defendant but that of
another, she quietly foiled counsel by
telling him she was not responsible for
hat was contained in the letter
he was reading, in a manner which
would have created the impression
upon the jury that counsel haa sur
reptitiously slipped that letter into the
basket to discredit her, but it didn't
The plaintiff's testimony was sus
tained by her father and brothe~r, both
oroving his ativentions, and their dis
appointment at the outcome because of
the defendant's prominence, and his
future prospects of being a judge.
Mr. J. H. Lesesne. the defendant,
after the plaintiff's side rested, took
the stand. His appearance on the
rostrum brought forth applause. He
had that now famous van dyke, a
boutoniere in the lapel of his coat, a
flashing red four-in-hand tie, and in
one hand a natty walking cane, in the
other, a cigar. He had the appearance
of a well groomed man of the world,
whose cares were sitting upon him
lightly. His testimony was a case of
not being able to resist the plaintiff's
winning ways. He told of how he fell
a victim to the spell the fair plaintiff
put upon him, described the situation,
how the moon was beaming. and the
stars were winking their insistance
that he should pop the question, how
the katy-dids in the trees chirped their
derision at him when he would hesi
tate, the flowers in the yard beneath
him would sigh in impatience, and the
eyes of the plaintiff would turn upon
him in what he construed an appeal to
not prolong the physicological moment;
his whole being was thrilled with
the surroundings, it was simply beyond
his power of resistance to pop, and pop
he did, but when he discovered his
true position he found himself a minor
string in the plaintiff's harp, there
were others, numerous others that she
was playing to wile away her time.
He received a letter from her while
she was off on a visit, and after kissing
the envelope as was his custom, he was
almost stricken to the ground when-he
opened the letter and found a most en
dearing epistle intended for another
fellow: the other fellow also received a
etter from her, and had the same ex
perience but being younger, and less
experienced in the ways of the world
this other fellow Will Selby got to
Iperspiring under the collar, and camne
to him for an explanation; this and
other things aroused his suspicions and
while be was not so ungallant to break
off the engagement, he admitted that
his back and she being a womau o
keen perception. read his thoughts an'
figuratively hoistedhim on the shar
end of her shapely slippered foot.
Mrs. F. 0. Richardson, a witness fo
the plaintiff proved to be a stauncl
friend, and she gave damaging testi
monv against Lesesne which went t
show that he was a practiced deceiver
even whea she was single this sam

deavoring to break young and innocen
hearts. Mrs. Richardson named a

bachelor, ladies who now have growr
children, some of them eld enough t<
have grandchildren. The witues.
created much merriment by her comi
Mrs. C. E. Wilkins for the defence
was another splendid witness. Het
mannerisms on the stand kept Sherifl
Wells busy ordering the bailiff's tc
Miss Riser. notwithstanding that
some of her testimony could have beer
protested against as being of a charac
ter that might be against herself, told
many incidents which were against the
defendant, and how he tried to fool
her, and she brought down the house
by relating an incident which occured
while she was the guest of Dr. C. B
Geiger in his automobile when they
reached a place on the Sammy Swamp
road the machine went into a -wash
out.,' and broke down, and while the
Doctor was under the machine trying
to do some repairs: the weather was
very hot, Supervisor R. E. McFaddin
came along and asked Dr. Geiger what
was the matter. The Dr. was hot and ex
asperated made a very naughty reply
and upon counsel insisting that she
must repeat the words, and only after
appealing for protection from the court
and he ordering her to tell "exactly
what the Doctor said". she with a
perfect imitation of Dr. Geiger's man
ner of speaking said "it is none of your
damned business, if you would bring
,hat chaingang out of Salem the roads
would not be in this fix."
The other witnesses only added to
the general line and their testimony
was in corroboration.
The last witness was Miss Jessie
McLean. who went upon the stand
blacked *and dressed as a negro mauma
cook.- She told the whole thing, and
goave away the entire household secrets.
Her dialect was splendid and kept the
house in a roar.
On account of the lateness of the
hour the speeches of the attorneys were
shortened. Judge Levi delivered his
charge, and the record was handed to
the jury who retired, and in a few
moments returned with a verdict as
follows: "We find for the plaintiff,
and sentence the defendant to have his
whiskers shaved,and that he supply the
plaintiff with a season ticket to witness

A Narrow Escape.
G. W. Cloyd, a merchant, of Plunk,
Mo., had a narrow escape four years
ago, when he ran a jimson bur into his
thuinb. He says: "The doctor wanted
to amputate it 'but I would not consent.

The Cornerstone ILaying.
The corner stone laying~ of the Sum
merton graded school promises to be a
large affair, elaborate prepsarations are
being made to entertaia a big crowd.
~anning and Foreston masonic lodges
are to assist the Summerton lodge mn
the ceremonies, The address of Prof.
Clinkscales is looked forward to with
pleasure. The occasion will be one of
he greatest events that has occured in
Olarendon in many years. and the en
tire community is in one harmonious
accord, not only for the successful cul
mination of the event of next Friday,
but to set the educational pace for the
county. The new graded school, when
completed will be a building suited to
a town many times larger than Sum
merton is at present, but with the wis
dom of preparing today for the morrow
the Summertonians builded a structure
for the present with a view of the
future development of the town This
is a practical demonstration .of broad
mindedness which is a shinig exam
ple for other communities in Claren
don to follow and profit by. As a re
sult of the contemplated building of a
modern school house there have been
many modern residences recently erect
ed, and in every direction others are
going up; there is no mushroom
growth, nor is it a boom, the advance
ment of Sammerton is the result .of a
long-sighted business policy of inviting
people to live in that town. Property
is always for sale, and changing hands,
not with some other towns,whose prop
erty owners add fifty per cent to the
value of their property whenever
there is a marriage, with the hope
that some day the off-spring of that
marriage wili be compelled to have
homes and pay the price, the result is,
such towns are stunted in their growth
and have no hope of ever growing un
til the wvall of selfishness which sur
round them is broken down by the
grim monster who comes along and
removes these obstacles to progress.
He takes them with him and thereby
brings relief to humanity, makes op
portunity for progress, and makes
gladness to those on earth, and no sor
row in the domains below.
No town can amount to importance
if it is blighted with a citizenship liv
ig within itself: the town, the prop.
erty of which is in the hands of a few,
and that few with a greedy dispositior
is to be pitied, but the town with a
citizenship, where the spirit is to buind
and push forward like Summerton has.
can be proud of their efforts, and they
will also count more money in the end.
The difference however is, the town
in the clutches of greed and selfishness
gives those responsible for such a con
dition an accumulation of land doing
them and nobody else any good, like
the miser who hoards his gold .and
starves to death in his cave, and the
town where there is a moving and at
upbuilding spirit, everybody is being
benefitted, and those responsible for
the condition are honored, at the same
itne they accumulate wealth and en
joy it in' this life and leave behind
them a good estate and a loving mem
ory. The masonic ceremonies at the
laying of the corner stone will begic
promptly at 11 o'clock a. m. Friday
A kiss is a peculiar pr-oposition-o:

charity. The bliss of the kiss however,
is freuently lessened, or lost entirely
on account of offensive breath of on4
