that some can esca:>e their public duty.

Cait. Thomas Wilson. President of
the Northwescern Railroad Co., spent
Monday in Manning attending court.
Mr. Wilson has recently returned from
Europe and the trip improved him very
much. The only fault we have to find
with this railroad man is that be will
not bring his road here. He as a lot
of interests in Clarendon and we think
our business people should get together
and make him see where it is to the in
erestsof his road to come here. Caiptain
Wilson is open to conviction when it
comes to a business proposition.
The Shaw McCollurn Mercantile Co.;
of Sumter are out in this issue catering
for the trade of our readers. Read their
ad, they are good and reliable dryj
goods merchants. This concern is noted
all over the country for reliability and
they make up-to-date dress goods a
specialty. They carry an elegant stc
of ladies' ready to-wear suits and te
guarantee everything they sell. A guar-!
antee from this concern means ev-erv
thing the word implies. They handle
everything mn the dr~ss goods line and
they are in position to meet the sharp
et of legitimate competition.
In directing the special attention of*
our readers to the advertisement of the:
Sumter Dry Goods% Company of Sumter,
we simply show that all of the up-to
date establishments in this and adjoin
ig counties advertise in THE TIMES.
This dry goods estabhishment is known
throughout Clarendon for their relia
bility, and their correct styles in every
thing pertaining to the dry goods and;
dreds goos lines, and besides it ir at
this establishment where a lady can
have her garments made by the most
experienced dress makers. Be sure,
when in Sumter to inspect the magnifi
cent stock of beautiful fabrics at the
Sumter Dry Goods store.I
The Common Pleas court convened
Monday, and all day Monday and Tues
jday it was engaged in the trial of the~
Icase of J. W. Touchiberry against the
N orthwestern Railroad in a suit for
amages resulting from backing water
Ion land. After takingr testimony on the
proposition of the defendant, and agreed
te by the plaintiff. The jury was taicen
to the land alleged to have been dam
aged, on a special train provided by the
defendant, and the court took a recess~
until this morning. The attorneys are
Charlton DuRant for plaintiff, and
Joseph F. Rhame and Purdy & O'Bryan
for defendant. The case was resumed!
We want, our rea.ders to do us the
kidness to let our advertisers know
that they do read the advertisements in
THE TIME and that they want their
county paper patronized by those who
wishi their business. There are a class'
of merchants who do not think it pays.
to advertise, but it does, and a little ob
servation will demonstrate it. Just see
the difference in the business of those.
who do advertise and those who do not.;
The merchant who does not advertise
gets only the crumbs, but the advertis
er gets the cream of the trade, and why?
Because he manifests a disposition to
want business and invites the trade to
look at what he has to selL. As a rulel
he keeps a fresh stock-of the very lat
est, and the people get in the habit of
looking to him when they want to buy.:
The attention cl' our readers is direct
ed to the attra'.tive advertisement of
The D. J. Chandler Clothing Co. in;
this issue. This advertisement is of his-!
torical importance. because it pictures
an historical event that has the whole
country agog at this time, and millions
of peoole from all over the world arc:
in New York to celebrate. The~
Chandlers are up-to-date and in giving
our readers an insight to this great
celebration they demonstrate their
ability to keep abreast of the t-imes, not'
only o>f the things of the day, but this
disposition is exhibited in their busi
ness. The D. J. Chandler Clotning Co.'
is no new concern to cur readers, they
are clothing dealers who through sheer
merit have won their way in the con-:
tidence of the trade to the extent that'
any article bought cf the~m gives to the
purchaser a satisfaction which can only
come to one who has what he wants.;
This concern has a m~agniticent stock
of everything and of the latest in the
clothing and gents' furnishing line, and
besides a tailoring department which
enables them to irive their patron-. a
perfect tit. When in Sumter be sure
