We have been so very busy over on

time for mixing with the people.
Hence, I hardly know "Who's who and
what's wl.r t." I do know though that
there have been some big stunts pull

town. Of course you very well know
that we have more than one such
block, but I mean the Main Street
sector, that wot enter when you come
over right straight from Manning.
And, by the way, I guess you have
never seen anything of thi:; place ex

Main "beat to a frazzle", to quote Col.

business line of our city, if I under

The Sumemrton Mercantile com

president and owne of most of the

mercantile house in Summerton, was

D-- that remained after the great
shaking up a couple of years ago has
been finally wiped ou. There seems to
be more light; the people are seing
things; tigers are not only no long
er blind but they seem to have gotten
in the right road, and if you chance to
meet one now you wouldn't know it,
for they seem now to be real good,
dir. Editor, have you ever thought
seriously what a terrible affliction it
v'cold be to be blind ? With all these
lovely things around us in nature:
the beautiful moon and stars in the'
heavens; the beautiful stars on the
stage and on the streets and every
where. It is certainly enough to touch
the heart of a villain to be walking
along the street, especially in these
days when there is more to see than
ever bforc, and meet up with a poor
blind man, feeling his way along with
his stick, or being led by a little boy.
Yes, a blind man can always have my
last dime; they have been welcome to
it, and always will be, so long as I am
blessed with sight. For the chances
are that you or I ,or anybody that has
pity on the blind will be rewarded,
and what I mean is right away, at
that; if we help the blind in the right
spirit. The thing was pictured to me
in Asheville some years ago, of what
a terrible thing it must be to be blind,
and of the willingness of most men to
help the blind man. I was standing
on the corner of Patton avenue and
Park Square, where the street cars
transfer, and there was a big crowd of
people coming and going. I think
there was a big convention in the city,
and there was an unusually big crowd
o fmen at this point, for if there is
anything to see that is the place to
see it. Just about time for the cars to
leave, a most beautiful woman, "some
queen," came tripping up the avenue
to catch the car. She was all beauti
fully gowned, and, of course, a woman
like this is the most beautiful sight
for any man to see. Well she was
dressed according to the fashion of
several years ago, when the dresses
were worn pretty narrow, and hers
wvas unusually so; and of course this
causedl her trouble when it came
to her stepping upl on the run
ning board of the car. Three times
she made a dlesperate effort to get
aboard the car, and it is needless to
say that tht, onlookers were much in
terestedl in the performance. Finally
she trippedl and fell, andl there she
wvas; couldn't get up on account of the
tight skirt. After the conductor and
motorman had lifted her up to the car
andl the car. movedl on dowvn Patton
avenue ,the crowd still wvatched the
car, hoping, I suppiose, that the poor
woman would try to get off at the
next stop, but it wvent right on, andl
w~hen the big crowd of. men that were
looking on turnedl aroundl to go on
their way, there stood the poor blind
man. Just to think ,he was right at
the showv, and saw nothing. But Ire
smiled a plenty when the quarters,
dimes and me~kles commenced to d p
in his tin cup. It seemedl to come verI
the men in a flash that there was a
poor man that hadn't seen this beau
tiful woman and everybody wvent (Iowa
in his p)ocket for something for the
poor fellowv. Some even wvent so far
as to borrowv from friends in ordler to
"(do their bit."
Well, as I stated before, I haven't
been out of the store enough to see,
or to hear much about any visitors
that might have been in our midlst.
