Misses Lillian and Cora Cantey, and

visiting Mrs. J. C. Bailey at Rock
Hill, S. C.
Rev. J. C. Bailey, who at one time
was the popular minister in charge
of the Presbyterian Church at Sum

tor In charge of one of the Presby

J. J. Cantey, Esq., is acquiring
quite a local reputation as a Patent
Attorney. On February 26, 1919, Mr.
Cantey filed an application for E. M.
Watt, of Summerton, for a Patent on
lhe E.- M. Watt Specific Mange
Remedy, and this application has
reached such a stage with the United
States Patent Office, that Mr. Watt
is now manufacturing his Remedy
and rapidly putting it on the market,
the result being that the Remedy,
which is an absolute cure . for all
forms of animal mange, is much in
iemand from all owners of dogs, hogs

On May 23, 1919, Mr. Cantey filed
in application in behalf on Andrew
1. Thomas of Summerton, for a Pat
mnt on the Thomas Process of freez
ng water without taking the life out
Af it and without evaporating same
mnd without mixing any chemical sub
stance therein, the result being that
the United States Patent Office has
locketed said application and is se
riously considering the question of is
suing a Patent for same, and it is
very probable that this process will
revolutionize the manufacture of ice,
since the plan requires no capital
and simply involves the freezing of
the fresh water from the well or
pump, without the danger of germs or
poisonous chemical substances.
For some time the people of Sum
nerton, that is some people have been,
in correspondence with the Railroad
Commission in regard to a better ser
vice on the North Western from
Sumter to Wilson Mill. Hon. J. J.
Cantey recently handed me a letter
with reference to this matter and I
herewith submit a copy of same,
which you will note makes a complete
change of schedule on this road. How
ever this order was effective on June
1st but it will be several days before
this schedule will be followed for rea
sons unstated. The letter is self
explanatory. It purposes this change
for a period of 90 days and if the
result is not satisfactory, another
change will follow.
