The suggestion bas been made that
ihe people of the South should take to
wearing cotton goods, creating an In
jreased demand for tho staple, and it
ls for cotton exchanges to put the
plan into effect and improve the con
dition of the market in this way.
In years gone by, cottonade was
very extensively used In the Southern
states iu the manufacture of trousers
for Bummer wear and in those days
there were no such trousers worn any
where as were tbose made by the old
hand looms. From the standpoint of
comfort, durability and neatness, cot
tonade trousers ar>> unrivalled and yet
they have completely disapp?ared
from the markot. Instead, the peo
ple of the South are spe_ Aaa many
millions of dollars, buying linen
trousers wbioh are neither so neat nor
so generally satisfactory as were the
old-time cottonade goods. Many mil's
would be established for the manufac
ture of the goods, while thousands of
old looms would also be brought back
into operation to supply ti e demand
for the cotton goods. The 'many
thousand dollars which people of the
South spend for woolen and linen
clothing would bo spent for cotton
goods If the demand could be only
created by popular fashion, and lt re
mabas for the ootton exchanges of the
S luth to Introduce the distinctively
Southern kind of dress.
The suggestion was recently made
by the New Orients States that the
members of the cotton exchange in
that city should inaugurate cottonade
wearing by dunning the suits them
selves and leaving it to the ot" er
com munit leos of the South to foll w
suit. The matter haB been -talker
about by the New Orle ins people, but
no definite steps have been tannas
yet along tho line of the suggestion,
and lt is yet too soon to say whethe
the suggestion will be put luto prac
The Charleston Post says: The
Charleston cotton exchange people
also refuse to commit themselves on
the pr? position, preferring to walt
the acion of the New Orleans ex
o ranges and the other cott< n b dies
of the South. A leading member of
the Charleston cotton exchange
thought that the suggestion ( f cot
tonadc wearing was a good one, but
he was not willung to take the Q'St
step of wearing this form of dress or
declaring his intention to do so. The
suggestion was a good erne in hi*
n Ind, and along the lines of great di
versifiait! 'ii of the uses of the staple
and he could see no n ason why the
superior form of clothing Bhould not
be adopted, but still, the wearing of
cottonade is now looked upon as an
Innovation, although the goo is were
formerly itulto common, and he does
not think that the t-uggestion can be
put into practice unless a general and
c nicer ted movement along this Une
should be inaugurated, and he
thought that there would be some
trouble in starting this movement,
and getting well under way. The
agitation of wearing cottonade should
bo pressed, he said, as it offered the
t nly hope of a more general use of
olothing and the more clothing of
the kiud which is used the greater
the demand for the staple and larger
the benefits to the farmers and busi
ness interests of the South.

A FOUL DEED
A Citizen of Williston Killed from
Ambush in Open Daylight.
The Crime Was Committed la Edge of
Woods ia Hailing Distance of
Some Farm Hands at Work
la a Field. His Watch
A special dispatch from Willlston
to The State says tbat community
was profoundly shocked Friday even
ing upon learning that-one of its prom
inent citizens, J. T. Smith, Jr., was
foully murdered about a mlle from
town. As usual, Mr. Smith had rid
den to his farm, and while riding
through a narrow strip of woods was
shot from his horse. There were two
shots Orcd, wh'ch wore heard by sev
eral persons, and the horse was seen
0 )mlng out of the woods and was
caught by a negro tenant.
Tbe woods lu which tho crim" was
committed ls surrounded by open Melds
In which were men at work, and it
seems impassible for the murderer to
bave committed this crime in daylight
and escape. The shots were heard
about half an hour b fore nark, and in
the edge of woods not far from a ten
ant h< use. As soon as the horse wns
brought to town without his rider a
party was made up and search begun.
The body was found about 8.30 p. m.
There were two shots which had Uk
en efl-ct, one in the side of the fae
and arm and the other full in the faoo.
His watch being gene, points to
robnery as the motive. B'.ood-'oui ds
nave been telegraphed for and every
tblug possible is being done tu locate
the murderer. Mr. Smith was a
prominent Mason, K of P , and was
nor, known to have an enemy In the
world. Tne community ls highly
wrought up but there has been no
rasti talk so far, but th?re is a deter
mination to find the criminal if pos
STILL A MYSTERY.
A dispatch from Williston to The
State sa\s there has been nothing in
the t'iwn which has inflicted such ai
shock aa the revi li lng murder of J. I
T. Smith, Jr., Friday afternoon
avout 4 30 o'clock. Mr. Smith had
ridden out to one of hla farms about a
mile from town, and wolle In a small
strip of woodlane" on the place he w? s
shot from his horse. Two dischargts
were fired, the one fired while he was
on hts horse, entering the neck at the
side, severing the jugular vein and
breaking the ver ebrae; the other,
which was fired when the victim wis
on the ground, entered the central
! portion of the face, inflicting a horrl
ble wonnd. The weapon which in
1 fllcted the wounds was a shotgun, dis
charged ab close range of a few feet.
As soon as the searching party
which had been hastily organized
upon the reaching of the concldfdon
of foul play, found the body, a,!jury
was empaneled and an lnve>. j^tion
begun, but as_wViaence
could be discovered considere tlon and
decision were postponed ur til Mon
day. As soon ss the search ng party
reached Willlston bloodhounds were
sent for. Hy 1 o'clock p. m., Sheriff
Creech and Supervls ir Morris of Barn
well aril ved with the chaining
hounds. These dogs were immediate
ly carried to the spot and every effort
made to strike trail, but nothing was
Wtllistcn is at sea. A horrible
murder has been committed and there
ls no trace of evidence as 'to the per
petrator of the foul deed. In the
cloud of gb om which rests upon the
tow.i there ls a silent, yet Intense, de
termination to put forth every i flort
to find and ferret every clue which
will bring the murderer to his due.
Mr. Smith was Just in the prime of
his manhood. In the estimation of
every one he stood in the forefront of
Willlston's best citlz mhip; a man of
shrewd bmliiess intell> ct. of broad
mindednt s?, a man of pleasing man
ners and of universal i stet m, he wa-,
a potent factor tn this community s
life. The fact that h.: was the man
that he was is what makes it the
more dltilouit to arrive at a bc sis of
operation for the detection of the
A KEG KO A II NESTED.
Jasper Singleton, to.orcd, was ar
ri sled at Willlston on Saturday,
charged with the ass">sdnati in of Mr.
J. T. Smi.h, Jr., Friday night. The
evidence against h;m ls purelj oin urn
stantial aud lt may ba that a iuhur
invalidation will reveal that be ls not
i be right mau. This inquiry ls no*
in progre;s and until all the supposed
evidi nee is in band it will be impos
sible to say whether there is enough
to hold bim for trial. Mr. S r 1th was
murdered Friday hi ?ht about a milt*
fn ni; own. Wile riding through a
-trip i f woods two shots were tired
and ho fell dead from his borse. A
snon as the riderless horse was seen a
par y was formed to search for the
murderer and the smirch was kppt up
all night. Stturoay morning Single
ton was arrested and ls now locked
up. Mr. Smith wa.? one of the most

Frederick W. Peabody, the Host on

says that he bas rcceivrd ideas con
cerning a whipping machine from a
woman. '"Some time ago," sall Mr.
Peabody, '"a womiu came to me and
told me that she had Invented a
whipping machine willoh could be
used with admirable results. Sue said
that the Instrument, was HO made as
to doll ver blows with equa.l foic,
thus eliminating the passion of pity
that with a human whipper, might
Influence tho severity of the punish
ment. Tne machine also would pro
tect the small of the back so that no
permanent injury could be done to
tho criminal. It would also turn him
about so that every blow might fall in
a new pine."_
