OTHER ELECTION NEWS
John M. Pattlson, Democrat of Cincin
nati Elected (Inventor of Ohio for
Three Years by Large Majority.
Elections were held last Tuesday in
many cities and states of the country
for mayor, governor and minor offices.
The race for mayor of New York was
one of the most interesting contests
waged in the metropolis in many years
and the end is not yet. McClellan, I
Democrat; Hearst, Municipal Owner
ship; and Ivins, Republican, were the
candidates for the high office.
Geo. B. McClellan, the present mayor
received 228,651 votes; W. R. Hearst,
225,166 and Ivins 138,049.
On the basis of alleged wholesale ille
gal acts at the polls, Hearst immediate
ly appealed to the Supreme Court of
the United States to contest McClellan's
re-election. It is said that thirty thou
sand Hearst men voted for McClellan
and it will be no surprise if Hearst is
given the certificate of election when
the contest is heard.
District Attorney Jerome of New
York was re-elected as an Independent.
John M. Pattison, Democrat, was
elected Governor of Ohio, defeating the
Republican candidate by a plurality of

DR. IRBY MAKES APPEAL.
Join Ranks with the Cotton Grower and
Carry the Fight on.
To the Citizens of Laurens Township:
Again I appeal for financial aid for
the Cotton Association. Some have
responded very liberally, but too many
have failed. I need not remind you
what the organization has done for you.
When this struggle began last spring
cotton was 6 1-2 cents, but in the face
of the largest surplus the world had
ever seen the price was pushed steadily
upward to 10 cents by July. The cause
of the cotton grower is the cause of us
all. Every section not already organiz
ed should get in line.
In this struggle for the dearest inter
est of our country you cannot, with im
punity, stand aloof. You cannot afford
to let this battle go on to either success
or failure without having a part in the
fight. Surely you will not be a listless
looker-on while this struggle for our
very existence goes on all over the
Southland, reaping the benefits of oth
er's labors and bearing no part of the
burden. This is not merely a summer
campaign. This fight must be kept up
with unremitting vigilance, and with
the mightiest energies of the bert brain
and manhood of the South. All through
the winter, all next spring, all through
the long summer, and even then, the
end will not be in sight. To sell our
effort will mean defeat. You are not
asked to make a sacrifice, but to work
for your own interest.
We must have means to carry on this
work. The small sum of three cents a
bale is asked. A sum so small as to
never be missed by you, but which may
mean much for your country.
Pay your mon^y to Treasurer C. A.
Power. If yo j can't find him, to any of
the county officers. If you can't come
send it by your neighbor.
W. C. IRBY,
President Laurens Township Cotton
November 14, 1905.
When a visitor or visitors are on
hand, who should suggest the hour of
retiring? Is it the place of the hostess
or guest? That question came up a
few evenings ago around a certain fire- I
side and it was not fully settled. The
preponderance of opinion, as they say
in the court house, leaned to the side
of the guest and that she was the one !
to take the lead. Of course where visi
tors and visited are on very friendly
terms no such formality need be ob
served. Like all questions this has two
sides to it. When a visitor sees that
the old man is getting restless and
yawing and going for a drink of water,
or if the eyes of the hostess begin to
get glassy and she looks as if she was
thinking of the dead past, it is time to
make a break for bed. Good, common
sense will always show the right way
to get to bed. -Carolina Spartan.

afternoon was soft and spring-like and
the spacious drawing-rooms of the
hostess's beautiful homo were filled
with palms, ferns and chrysanthemums,
arranged with most artistic effect.?
Great white and crimson chrysanthe

were also scores of the National flag

was "America," the score being kept
by tiny flags and the trump for the af
ternoon being America at all the card

NEGRO STEALS A COW.
And Lands In Jail Instead of Under the
Big Show Tent.
Simply to avoid the rush and the
crowds on circus day Jim Austin, colored
of the Rarksdale section was perhaps
the first person to arrive in the city
Friday morning. He wanted to "take
in" the show but he had a little busi
ness matter to arrange first m which
he expected to raise a little cash. Cash
is a mighty nice thing to have in one's
jeans on a circus day, don't you know.
Jim had figured this all out before he
left home "endurin" the night with
his white neighbor's nice,'sleek Jersey
cow, and shortly after daylight he
opened up negotiations with a local
party for the sale of the cow, offering
to take $12.50 for a Jersey.
This looked suspicious and the mat
ter was promptly reported to the police
and Austin was immediately arrested
by Chief Bagwell. When faced with
the charge Austin gave in and confessed
that he had stolen the cow from Mr.
George McGil of Barksdalc. Subse
quently he was turned over to Sheriff
Duckett at the county jail.
Young Negro Shot.
As the result of an altercation be
tween Frank Fleming and John John
son young negroes of the county last
Wednesday evening, Fleming was shot
in the 'mouth by Johnson, receiving
quite an ugly and painful wound. The
shooting took place on East Main street
just east of the river bridge and was
witnessed by three other darkies. John
son made his escape.

New York; T. H. Rennio, of Grnnite
ville; E. W. Robertson, of Columbia;

Somewhat of a sensation was created
by the offer by the directors of a re
ward of $1,1)00 for the return of the
several valuable books of the Union
cotton mills with evidence to convict
the. person taking the books. One thou
sand dollars reward will bo paid for
merely the return of the books. These
books disappeared from the offices some
It was announced at the close of the
meeting that the cotton contracts of
the Union cotton mills had been closed
out at a price ranging from 9.GO to 9.96.
These contracts called for 88,000 bales,
enough to hist the mill seven years,
and were made in July by former

The stage of the City Opera House
Will be occupied on Nov. 17th by Mana
ger Ernest Cooke's magnificent and up
to-date production' of "Humpty
Dumpty" with the great master of
pantominc, George H. Adams, in the
title role. This production is a com
bination of comedy, opera, vaudeville
and pantomine, welded into a most
harmonious whole, intcrspeised with
tho exquisite grand ballet divertise
ment executed by a corps of beautiful
and clever show girls, all presenting a
scene of voluptuous animation scarcely 1
equaled and never excelled, and amid a '
shower of splendor in which over 20
people take part.
The most noted of the vaudeville acts
presented is that of "Erve," the won-1
derful mystery, delineating the birth
of woman out of space and within the
full view of the audience. This act is'
one of the most noted now before the j
American public and is a most marvel-1
ous performance in itself. It is befit-'
tingly called "Erve," which literally,
means life, and represents the creation '
of lovely woman, one of perfect form |
and beauty, in utter defiance of the |
laws of nature and science, and illus
trating the absolute abandon in the
dealing with the occult and the incredi
ble instance of the incomprehensible
will be blended in the impressive.
Manager Cooke, having the interest
of the theater going public at heart,
has not forgotten that a clean, effi
cient and up-to-date performance never
fails to attract, and his present pro
duction of "Humpty Dumpty" has in
its fibre the very essentials of refine
ment and artistic splendor.
