DEAD DOGS IN GREENWOOD
A Sight that Would Have Pleased
Arthur Thompson, Esq. a well
known lawyer of Edtfofield, passed
through tho etty today on his way
homo from Greenwood, ?where ho
has boen at court for several days.
Ile relates a remarkable instance
of ''hydrophobia fright*' which
goes to show that '"LittleOld New
York" is not thc only town on thc
map that is afraid of the terrible
"A few days ago," he said,
"'somebody's dog went mad, and
bit more than a score of other dogs
in Greenwood before his mad ca
reer was brought in to an abrupt
termination. When thc news went
abroad, people grew uneasy, and
sc voi al dog-owners voluntarily
killed their pets.
"'There is a city ordinance in
Greenwood that requires police
men to shoot at ?ight all loose dogs
that wear no muzzle. Thc town
marshal is game to thc core, and
when thc 'mad dog scare' took
hold on thc people, he received or
ders, to rigidly enforce thc ?aw,
without fear or favor.
"Well, thc result was what
might have been expected. The
marshal simply loaded up for dogs
and shot every one he saw with
out a muzzle? Ile didn't stop to ar
gue the matter at all. Ile slew
without respect for persons. And
they hauled out dead dogs by wa
gon loads. It was the lirst time 1
have ever seen so many dead dogs
in one heap. Many owners of line
dogs remonstrated but it was no
use. The war of extermination
went on anet Greenwood is minus
several dozen dogs, both desirable
and undesirable."-Augusta Her

WHITE MEN WITH MONEY SE?r
Judge Aldrich Starts Out to Mai
Aiken as Good as

looking, well dressed white men in
thc prime of lite, were sentenced
to serve six months each on thc
Aiken county chuingaug todfty
without tho alternative of paying
lines for having violated thc dis*
p ihsary law. 4
Both men had entered pleas of
guilty tut, notwithstanding the
fact, Judge Robert Andrieh gare
thom thc limit, and in pronouncing
sentence, expressed regret that tba.
law does not permit him to givr*
heavier sentences to men of their
stripe. He said until the law
makers increase the penalty for
violation of this law it will nat bc
j possible to secure its proper eti
I forcement. These men formerly
?operated in the blind tiger busi
ness in Augusta but thc he**jr
sentences recently imposed fat
violations of the prohibition law
by Judge Hammond caused tlieat
men to cross thc Savannah ritrer
and ply their nefarious illicit tirade
in South Carolina.
They stood up in the court oC
general sessions and entered pleas
of guilty, doubtless feeling t?iat,
they would get off with mild fines
which either of them, it woul?*?i*
pear, could easily pay. But thap
reckoned without their host audit
is doubtful if they would haveanj?
desire to face Judge A'driek.
