Several merchants have added im
provements to their stores the past
few weeks among which are front
painting and window dressing. All
these things tend to help the looks of
our "Broadway" There are a few more
business houses on our main thorough
fare that a little paint would' help the
looks of and if these were put in first
class condition our little town would
look "citified" sure enough with the
exception of a few crooked streets
which none of us can help for those
who laid off the principal streets here
probably have already gone to glory
where all streets are straight and
they probably now see their mistake.
After all tho we have a good town
despite several conditions which we
cannot help and all these things are
very trivial. No one from the outside
can notice them unless they identify
themselves with town life and all of
ns here in the burg look over these
things. Summerton is not unlike
other towns, they all have their
faults and some more than Summer
ton. We could have water works but
no one in Summerton likes to take a
bath in the cold winter months and in
the -unner we have a ref-eshin
str-am :n the nutskirt= of !!-e city
where those needing same can have
the pleasure of a good bath within its
placid waters. We could have with
a little extra expense a minature fire
department sufficient for a small
town but the folks in Summerton use
the o-ld saying that "an ounce of pre
ventative is worth a pound of cure"
and do all they can to prevent fires
and such like and therefore we have
no fires to any extent and for which
we are indeed very thankful. We
have had only one conflagration in the
past few years which I feel sure is a
record for a town the size of Sum
merton however we (10 not know wvhen
we may have one that may threaten
our whole busihiess district and with
this idea in view merchants as well
as property owners should not let
their insurance go slack on account
of our previous recordl as sooner or
later we may have a fire that will
mean something if we are not careful
about our insurance policies. Most
all of the mercantile establishments
carry I suppose as much as they are
allowed to carry but owing to the
rapid adlvance of mere~nandlise the in
surance companies wvili allow you to
carry a great (deal more than they
use to and probably there is some
merchant in Snmmerton who just has
his former policies renew~ed and dloes
n~ot take into considleration that his
stock has increased a good bit from
the tiume he covered with insurance.

A fatal shooting scrape took place
in the vicinity of St. PaulI last Sat
urday about noon. A negro named
Arthur Ryan did the shooting and an
other negro nameil (eorge lDulose
was his victim. The parties in the
case were working with a lumber
hauling force now operating at St.
Paul, each being wagon drivers. It
is statedl that the two negroes had
some words previous to the shooting
in the morning before arriving at St.,
Paul. T1he teams which we're about
twenty in number are hauling lumber
from different points on the rivor.
swamp to the planing mill at St. Paul
andl on this particular ay they hna
stopped to water the stock at a water-'
ing station along the road. All the
wagons had stopped, the deceased
driver being near the rear decided to
drive o~n ahead so as to get out near
the first wagon possibly to avoid the
du'st. In passing the wagons his
wagon struck the wagon driven by
Arthur Ryan and pushed Ryans wag
on in the ditch with a theavy load on
it. Ryan approached DuBose about
same and words were exchanged
which led to the shooting upon the ar
rival of the wagons at St. Paul. Eye
witnesses to the affair stated that
Ryan shot at DuBose while he was
yet on his wagon and that DuBose
fell off the wagon and became en
tangled in a wire fence on the off
side of the wagon and that Ryan ran
up and emptied his pistol in the body
of DuBose who tried to run but fell
dead after going only a short dis
tance. Ryan who it was thought
would surrenler, as soon as he found
that he had killed DuBose made well
his escape and is still at large pos
sibly in the swamp near St. Paul.
Several posses have hunted him but
so far no trace of him could be had.
Both negroes bore bad reputations,
Ryan having come from Charleston
and DuBose from Columbia. It is ru
mored that this is the fourth man
that Ryan has killed. Another negro l
was arrested as accessory after the
fact. An autophy was held over the
lead body of DuP and the coroner's
iaur came to the i ..ct that George
DuBose came to -ath of gunshot
wounds in the hands of Arthur Ryan,
while the other negro who is in the
county jail and whose name it is im
possible to assertaii, is held as be
ing accessory after the fact.
