s
At the auditorium Friday a

Another Fatal Accident.
. Riley F. Porter had the mis
fortune to have his right arm
cut off last Tuesday morning in
a cotton gin he and his brother
James Porter were operating 4
near Garrett's store. His hand I
was caught in the gin and was
torn off just above the wrist be
fore the machinery could be
stopped. Medical aid was at
once summoned and the arm
had to be amputateg.
Later-Mr. Porter died frU
the effects of his injury between
four and five o'clock in the]
afternoon of the same day.
His remains were buried at Se
cona the day following. He
leaves an aged father and a wife1
and several children. He was:]
a brother of Waddy Porter,]
who was accidentally killed
about a month ago by Mr. A. J.
Looper. The family have thea
tender sympathy of all their
friends in their sore affliction.
Sale Day
Last Monday was an unusual
ly disagreeable day and there
was not as large attendance
upon the public sales as would
have been had the day been fair.
There was- a very fair crowd
however and prices were good.
The low price of cotton did not
seem to dampen the ardor of
purchaers. The following is a
result of the sales:
In the case of W. H. Ambler
vs., Addie A. Barrett, et al., the
Home Tract of 11534 acres was
sold to W. H, Ambler for$3,500;
the B. 0. Ambler tract of 100
acres was sold to J. L. Ambler
for $1,516.00; the Boreguard
Ambler tract of 44 acres was
sold to J, N. F. Rigdon $1,310.
In case of, John A. Burgess,
et al vs. Martha Hogsed,et al., a
tract of 25 acres on Saluda river
was sold to J. A. Bates for $800.
In the case of P, D. Dacus,
et al vs. Lucretia Gilstrap 125
acres was sold to W. G. Roper
for $1,745.00.
In the case of G, W. Hen
dricks, et al vs. Ruth A. A. Ro
chester,et al 271-3 acres was sold
to G. W. Hendricks for $1,700.
In the case of Frank G. All- q
good etal, vs, J. Mitton Looper,
et tract of 35 acres was
su G. Allgood for $1,125.- a
00. aer tract of 23acres was 1
so .). Nealy for $1,100. I
4ces do not indicate
hart bd the eagerness of
the bW*iem did not imp I
ne very much that the people
rere were getting tired of Pick
ns County or had the Texas
nd Georgia fever.
Democrats Win.
As a result of the elections
eld Tuesday the Democrats
cored victory in several states,
>me of which had heretofore
een Republican and doubtful.
The Democrats carried Massa
husetts, New York, Maryland,
[ississippi, Kentucky, V:rginia,
)hio.
Massachusetts and Kentucky
ad Republican governors, but
his year elected Democrats.
The signs of the times point
> a Democratic landslide next
ear.
The Marlboro Plan.
At a convention of the cotton
rowers and business men of
farlboro county held at Ben
Lettsville last Monday, a resolu
ion was adopted calling on the
overnor to convene the legisla
re in extraspssion as early as
ossible, and that this body pass
,n act to build warehouses to
tore cotton to enable the farmer
o get better prices. The gov
ror refused to do this on the
'round of expense to the tax
iayers.
ERE WE
ARE AGAIN.
Being so well pleased with
he results of our 20 days sale
rhich has just ended,. we have
lecided to continue the sale
intil after Christmas. So come
n and get some more of that
ive and six pounds of coffee
o the dollar. Why give one
lollar for io and 12 lbs. of su
,ar when you can get 14 lbs. at
rown's store. It will pay you
o drive 15 miles to trade five
tollars at his store.
Remember he gives 16 oz.
o every pound and 3 feet to
~very yard. With every five
lollars worth of Dry Goods
ou get at his store he gives a
)remmum.
The best line of Shoes to se
ect from at a price never be
ore heard of. .
Plenty more of that Blue
ibbon Flour to go under the
~ther fellow's price. Try it
nd you will always come to
3rown for your flour.
'fell the little follows thlnt
SANTA CLAUS
going to make headquarters
t Brown's Store, near Twelve
die River, where he cau run
ut and bring big loads of
Kmas Tricks to supply their
rants and then run back un
ier a rock cliff. He has em
loyed Brown to wait on the
ittle folks in his absence.
When the other fellow tells
ou he can sell as good stuff
or the same money as Brown,
:ell him to wait till you go see
Brown, and then if you and
3rown don't trade you will
:ome back.
This is a free country. So
