SOLD FOR *I7,(K)(I
This Hum Has Been Paid For Ani
mals Shipped to French Govern,
GREENWOOD. Fob. 2.-Approxi
mately $17.000 has been paid to thc
farmers in Greenwood County for
mules during the present winter. This
estimate was made today by Mr. 8.
O. Harvey, at whose ?tables the ani
mals have been purchased and who
has handled the financial end for the
buyers. Mr. Hardey states that not
less than 200 mules have been shipped
from the couutv sinee last tall, the
average price, thus being $85. The
last lot was bought by an Atlanta man
who paid from $70 to $160 for them.
Practically all of the animals that
have been purchased In this country
have been shipped to the French gov
ernment to be used In the war. If
other counties have sold anything like
the number that Greenwood has some
Idea may be had of the enormous
number of animals that have gone
from the Southern States.
The sale of so many mules here
U another evidence of the large
amount of grain that lia? been sown
In Greenwood County for this spring.
In many instances it is said that farm
ers with three plows have sown one
lo grain and the proportion "holds
good with the larger planters. As
long as grain takea the place of cot
tou tho county can well afford to de
crease its "mule crop" also.

THE TRUTH WAGON
Why Don't Ton Tell the Troth and Go
The answer is given In tho movln.t
picture coming hero today at the
John Ross, the Idle son of a rich
father, because of his ' pranks and
Idleness ls continually . bombarded
with the question, "Why don't you tell
the truth and go to work?"
George Ross, hts father, i? an hon
est mun. but ls a plant tool in tho
hunos ot Hen^y Drew, the republican
stato chab'Dian. ROMS, however, it?
Ignorant rbat he ia being used RH a
pappet. Neither wilt he believe hir.
son. who. with all his faults, ia keon
enough to see through the politician s
Holen Dean, a reporter on 'Truth.*
c. ?iist-dyin<t nfwspapcr owned . y
Willam Dean, her father, seeks out
John Ross to get a story concerning
his newest Joke. Like those of his
family, she ia incensed by his idle
ness and asks him why he does not
go to work. Later, when his father
takes him to task tor his uselessness,
he makes the startling announce
"I'm going on the Truth Wagon for
ninety days. I'm going to buy the
Truth' and go to work.'"
And he does. He buys the newspa
per and begins to wage a bitter war
ngaiuat crooked politics. He re
fuses to sell out to Tammany and
when his father will not cut loose
from Drew and Sullivan, he begins
to fight him. He retains Helen Drew
and her father to aid him in birt
campaign and goes so far as to have
tbe elder Dean nominated fer the
governorship to run against his fa
ther. Sullivan brings libel suits
against young Ross and holds bim
practically a prisoner In his office.
When these means fail an-1 when
John Ross succeeds in getting in
criminating evidence against Sull'van
and Drew. Sullivan get his strong
trm men together and Instructs them
to stop thc "Truth" from got n g to
press If they have to wreek tho plant
lo do it.
Young Ross takes the law ir to
bis own hands, gathers a mob snd
places it under the leadershln of a
prize-fighter. A fight between the
two factions follows which results in
the utter dcleat of the Sullivan gang.
In the meantime Forbes, a report
er on "Truth." has sold out to the
"Star." Sullivan's newspaper, and
has furnished them with a slanderous
story regarding young Ross and Hel
en Dean. He offers to trade this
story for the evidence held by Rons
which will convict him. John Rosa
consents, but he still holds the jok
er up his sleeve. He summoiiB his
father, Ceorge Ross, and shows him
the evidence of Sullivan's und Drew's
conspiracy against him. Thus en
lightened, the older Ross resigns from
the gubernatorial race in favor of
William Dean and gives his son un
exclusive story of his action. This
is a body blow to Sullivan and routs
Dean ls elected, the political ma
chine ls disrupted and ROBB shortly
afterwards, leads the governor elect's
daughter, Helen to the altar.
