-While quoting the warrau sworn
out against Mr. Lee Roper last week
we got it mixed with what Magistrate
Harris was telling us Mr. Lesley
would swear to and would try to
prove, hence, the statement was a
little misleading. The warrant
charges that Mr. Roper "did wilfully,
maliciously, without just cause, un
mercifully whip one Mattie Lesley,
and did thereby commit the offense
of assault and battery of a high and
aggravated nature." We thought
the occurance such an unusual one
that we gave what we could of the
case. The preliminary is set for
Thursday. In justice to Mr. Roper
we make the above correction.

-Mr. E1arle Seaborn, who is well
known to the trading public of
Pickens county, having at one time
worked for the Heath Bruce-Morrow
Co., but who has for the past eighteen
months been in Greenville with the
Hobbs.Hlenderson Co., has recently
been promoted by that enterprising
firm to the clothing departnaent ex
elusively. Earle is a good salesman
and his employers know a Igood
thing when they see it, so have ad
vanced him from the general stock
salesman to- an exclusive line. This
enterprising firm carries as big and
complete line of clothing, shoes, hate
and gents' furnishings as any house
in Greenville, and have put the prices
on their goods at such a figure that
you cannot help but buy if you drop
in and get prices. Earle want~s all of
his Pickens county friends to call and
see him when they are in Greouville,
whether they buy or not, but if you
biy you can rest assured you are
getting the worth of your money

in the Laurel Fork section of the

death at Toxaway Baptist church, in

witnessing the last sad rites. Mrs.
Ohappell was the oldest person in
the county; her maiden name was
Birice; she was married twice and
was the mother of 12 children. She
was one of the old-time women who
believed in the simple home reme~dies
and never had a physician in hea
house in her life; she had never seen
a railway train, could not count to
one hundred, but learned to count
silver money, but did not learn to
count paper money. She was always
well and hearty and did considerable
work up to her death; she spun and
wove all the cloth for her clothing,
and just a short time before her
death was carding rolls to put a
piece of cloth in the loom. She wr a

A OARD) FROM MR. McALISTERI.
Centrol, Sept. 3.--Will you please
give me space in your paper to than~k
my friends for their support given
me in the primary election on August
28, 1900.- My friends I hope that
my life will ever be such that you will
not regret what you done for me.
May God bless us all and ever choose
our lots for us in His own g~o.l way.
I wont down at your will and there
isn't a man In this county any more
subject to the wvill of the people than
I. Hoping that whom the people
may elect will servo his constituenls
faithful and well, as the Apostle Pat I
proved himself by love and truth, and
to be worthy of the honor conferre d
upon thoem by the people.
I know that I conducted my pat t
of the campaign upon the hiighet t
sta-ue, ever holding fast to the truth
and condemuing the wrong.
Mr. Editor, I want to explain some
things brought against me wvhiet
were untrue regarding to the Gassa
way bridge. It wasi circulhted thai

to fall in the river, which I say wva

It was built by estelases ineohalas.
And the cause of its falling iWas due
to the fact that it was unnecessarily

workmen knocked loose .- It cost the
county nothing-to take It and.rebuild
the bridge. - It.-was my job. I.- at.
tended to my -'busibess and if the
gossiper will: do the same he will
have a heavy load thiough the sand.
So I think It very unjust to me unless
I had done some wrong. I think I
have a shoe that fits the gossiper and
if it don't fit don't wear it, but it will
fit the right one, and the liar will
wear it and if he don't it's a good fit
any way. Mr. iditor, if he is not
o4atisfied tell him I have one ear at
the phone and just to ring and I'll
hear, that's all.
