No doubt the life insurance agent tried several times to
get an audience with you, to tell you the benefits of in

you and your family a tremendous favor- You realize
NOW, that while this life insurance agent made money for
himself, he certainly did you a good turn, "when he finally
sold you your life insurance.
You would read all the ads- in each issue of the In

I wish to do you as great a favor as the life insurance
agent, who sold you your insurance, so please read the fol

Why do manufacturers of the very best known articles
of commerce continue to advertise their goods?
Why is it that the most successful retailers and de
partment stores spend a great amount of money every day
advertising their goods in the newspapers?
There is but one answer and that is:?"IT IS , THE
CHEAPEST KNOWN METHOD OF SELLING GOODS."
Advertising will increase the volume of business of
any article of commerce that has REAL MERIT; if its an
article without merit, the. less advertising the better for the
The biggest problem of the retailer is the sale of his
goods; he can handle the other branches with much less
trouble, because with his knowledge of the lines of mer
chandise that he proposes to sell, he can buy his goods with
safety, then comes the arrangement of his stock and the
location of his store, and his store fixtures.
That brings him up to the opening of his place of busi
ness; he is now ready to begin business.
Please remark that?HE IS NOW READY TO BE
He has bought the very best goods for the money that
he could buy/ in order to be able to sell them at a profit.
And most any person with average intelligence can buy
goods as cheaply as another.
Now the merchant is ready to sell goods?that's the
NUT that he must crack before he succeeds. He must
sell ENOUGH goods at a profit to take care of his RENT,
LIGHT, ICE, FUEL, DELIVERY, TAXES, INSURANCE
and the COST OF SELLING, viz: WINDOW TRIMMING,
CLERK HIRE and ADVERTISING. ,
You see that the bigger the volume of business that he
gets the less it costs him to sell goods. You see that, don't
His OVERHEAD expense is about the same per year,
whether he sells $20,000 or $5o.ooo, so if he can Increase
his sales $30,000 by a judicious expenditure for newspaper
advertising, he will make more money, won't he? And on
an increased volume of business, he can afford to sell to
YOU, Mr. Consumer, on a much smaller per cent of profit.
AU this being true, it is money in your pocket to buy
ONLY advertised goods; in fact, when you buy an unad
vertised article, you are boosting the price on yourself.

CONSTABLE KILLED A
HO WHO RESISTED
THE LATTER DREW SHOT
GUN ON OFFICER AND
Killing Occured Saturday in Hope*
well Section?Negro Had
Details of the killing of a negro
named Lawson Gaillard by Truman
Wilbur, constable for Magistrate A.
M. Guyton of the Hopewell section,
last Saturday morning, which occur
red in a negro house near the Ander
son-Oconee county line, when the offi
cer attempted to arrest the negro on
an old warrant, were not known in the
city until 6 o'clock Sunday morning,
when Coroner Hardin and Deputy
Sheriff J. OUn Sanders returned from
holding an Inquest. Late Saturday af
ternoon the sheriff's office was notified
that a killing had occurred in the
Hopewell section and the coroner and
deputy Bheriff left here about five
o'clock. At that time they knew none
of tho particulars of the case.
It seems, that Constable Wilbur and
a friend, T. O. Trammell, were out
hunting Saturday morning when the
former was advised that Lawsou Gail
lard, who had been a fugitive for
something like a year, was back in
that section and at the home of one
Dock . Hurts. The constable at once
went to the home of Hurts and advised
Gaillard that be had a warrant for
him. When the constable asked Gail
lard to come with him, the latter re
fused to go, it is said. The constable
went into the house after the negro,
it is said, and Gailllard drew a knife
on him. When told to put up tho
knile, it was testified at the Inquest,
the negro refused, declaring that It
was his knife, that he paid for it and
would use it as he saw fit. The officer
attempted to take the knife from the
negro, it is reported, when the latter
advanced into another room,where he
picked up a double barrel shot gun
and pointed it at the officer.
Constable Wilbur had a single bar
rel shot gun with which be had been
hunting, and when he saw Gaillard
raise his gun, the officer fired upon
the negro. The load of shot struck
the negro in the top of the head and
mutilated him terribly. It appeared
that the officer did not have time to
get his gun to his shoulder before
firing, this being evident from the
manner in which the load of shot
struck the negro.
There were but three witnesses to
the affair, T. O. Trammell and Dock
Burts and his wife. Tho testimony of
all three substantiated the statement
of the officer. Coroner Hardin receiv
ed word of the killing late Saturday
afternoon and he and Deputy Sheriff
Sanders eet out for tho scene of the
affair, arriving yiere about 9 o'clock.
A Jury was empaneled and the inquest
held, a verdict being returned to the?
effect that the negro came to his
death from gunshot wounds at the
hands: of Wilbur. The officers reached
Anderson on the return trip about 5
o'clock Sunday morning.
The killing occurred on Mr. Sam
Reeve's plantation, about 11 o'clock
Saturday. morning. Mr. Wilbur is
about 23 years of age and the son of
a well known farmer of that section.
He and his father came to the city
yesterday afternoon to confer with
Solicitor Smith with reference to the
constable obtaining bond.

ONE BRIDEGROOM GOES TO
PRISON?THE OTHER TO
BRIDES TOO YOUNG
How Judge Broadwell Pacified
the Turbulent Feelings of
Harsh clanging of prison doors up
on a bridegroom within less than an
hour after he bad led a blushing dam
sel of tender years to Hymen's altar,
is the cruel ending of a little romance
which had its inception two years
ago in the youth taking up his resi
dence in the iass' home.
Arrest your grief at this point, gen
tle reader, for another tale of similar
hue, but which came to a happy end
ing. A bridegroom of but two days,
upon whose head an irate father-in
law had threatened to visit the law,
is today located upon a large farm,
with a good, young mule to engage his
attention, instead of in the cotton
mill, with a whirring loom to All his
cars and demand his constant atten
These two little romances, the one
ending so tragically and the other so
happily, came to light yesterday In the
court of Magistrate Broadwell. And
it is owing to his common sense and
good judgment that the bridegroom
whoso romance ended so happily, is
not keeping company with the bride
groom who is languishing behind pris
Married in Greenville.
Yesterday morLlng a stern old man
and a meek, tender-eyed old lady
came into Magistrate Broodwell's
office. The old man Informed the
judge that he wanted a warrant for
a young white fellow who had stolen
his only child, a girl of some 15 year,
and married her. The old fellow's
name is Pearson and ho owns a large
farm near Pelzer. The couple had
but one cbild, and she was the idol of
the old father's heart and the apple
of the mother's eye. The old couple
seemed heart broken over the affair,
and what appears to grlevp them more
was the manner In which the daughter
had surprised them. The old man
Bald that he and his wife had been
in Greenville, where the conple hsd
gone to get the license and marry,
and were told that they-should get
the warrant in Anderson. This was
evidently a ruse on the part of the
Greenville officers to avoid having
anything to do with the matter. The
father averred that the bridegroom
had been to see his daughter but
twice and that she had gotten but two
letters from him. He came armed
with his Bible and was ready to show
tho magistrate the justice of h?? puni
When the old man had finished his
tale Judge Broadwell had a few
words to say. He stated that he had
known the bridegroom, a Mr. Stone,
for a number of years, and knew him
to be an industrious and God fearing
man and in every reBpeet worthy of
the hand of any daughter in the com
munity. He advised the parents to
leave the couple alone, as uny inter
ference with their happiness might
spell ruin for both. The old man be
gan to g-ow interested in the judge's
words, ana the expression on the face
of the good old lady began to change.
When tue judge explained that prob
ably the girl told the young man that
she vas IK years of age (the legal
uge) and that maybe he could not
make a charge of false swearing
against the bridegroom, the old man
bristled up and shouted, "No, sir, my
daughter is a Christian girl and she
would not tell a lie."
Judge Hroadweil reasoned that that
was all true, but wurned tho old fel
low that when it came to matters of
the heurt a little white lie about such
a thing ks a girl's age might not bo
considered an unchristian act. Ono
more the old man's head nodded In
assent. But' the master stroke by the
Judge was v>Y\vn he asked the old man
this, "Sir, how old was your wife
when you were married." When tho
old lady replied that she was between
16 and 17, the judgo mused, "There
now, you would prosecute this young
man for doing the same thlnr for
which you yourself would have been
prosecuted hud the marriage license
law existed at that time."
All? Well That Kuds Well.
Tills ahot from the magistrate com
pletely routed the old man. Hut the
magistrate wps not through. Yet an
other volley 1 fired In these words,
"Now, I teli you what you do. You
and the old lady go ovAer yonder and
take dinner with your daughter and
Bon-ln-law; treat them nice, and sug
gest to the young man that he go back
to tho farm with you and help comfort
you and the old lady In your declining
years, and let him go before you und
make the rough places smooth."
The words of the magistrate went
horn':, tor the old fellow came back
at tho judge with his, "By George, 1
hadn't thought of that. I've got a
spanking good pair of young mules
back home and I'll simply take that
fellow back to my farm and put him
to ploughing. Come on, Hon', let's go
have dinner with the children."
This EndH Badly.
Scarcely had this old couple de
parted when another irate father ap
proached the magistrate and asked
for a warrant for one Anderson Spear
man, a young white man working in
the Brogon mill, who had just left
with his 15 year old daughter, Fannie
Thomerson. The father was of the im
pression that the couple were going
to marry and go off on the 6 o'clock
train for Seneca. A warrant was has
tily drawn up and given to Deputy
Williams, who surprised the cduple in
about an hour after they had been
married by the Bev. Scutty White,
who paused in his labors in the Bro
gon mill long enough to tie the knot
It seems that Spearman came to the
house of the girl some two yesrs ago
to board. The two years of living un
der th? same roof served to drat?
them one toward the other, resulting
lu their elopemer^ yesterday.
