& MR. TODD RESIQNS AS CASHIER.
Is Succeeded at Peoples Bank by Mr. C.
Mr. J. Wells Todd has resigned his
position as cashier of the Peoples Loan
and Exchange Bank of this city. This
resignation was submitted to the board
of directors in their meeting last
Wednesday morning and accepted.
For some time past Mr. Todd has been
in failing health and in consequence
thereof deemed it for the best interests
of the bank to resign and elect a cash
ier who would be physically able to give
more time and attention to the duties
of the office. In his stead Mr. C. W.
Tune was elected. Mr. Tune has held
the position of assistant cashier for ten
years; in fact, throughout the entire
administration of Mr. Todd as cashier.
He moved here in 1871 from Alabama
and has always been closely identified
with the interests of Laurens. His
long training amply fits him for the du
ties he now assumes.
The withdrawal of Mr. Todd from
active business is a matter of sincere
regret to all the people of this city and
especially the business men. He has
been connected with the bank since its
organization over twenty years ago in
some capacity and for ten years and
more has held the position of cashier.
Mr. Todd is, of course, still a stock
holder and director in the institution.
With the burdens of this ollicc removed
Mr. Todd's health, it is hoped by all the
people of Laurens, will steadily and

Henderson Withdraws From Race.
The Hon. D. S. Henderson, of Aiken,
has withdrawn from the senatorial con
test. Following is his statement pub
lished last week:
"Some time ago I announced that I
would be a candidate for the long term
for United States senator, but there
are now reasons, in which the public
would not be interested, which induce
me not to enter the race, and I feel it
my duty to my friends to so state at
this juncture in order that they may
align themselves where and with whom
they see fit.
"I am very grateful for the support
which my faithful friends have tendered
"If any issue personal to myself was
made or if there was any public issue
in which the welfare of the State and
public at large were involved that
pvould arise in the ensuing canvass I
would continue the race to the end; but
as none such exist there is no duty
which requires such action on my part.
There will be no dearth of candidates
from present appearances, and for the
good of the State I hope the people will
make a wise choice."

A dispatch from Greenwood contain

people in Laurens. Mr. Sal ley has
many friends here:
"At the regular annual meeting of

public schools Prof. N. M. Sallcy, the
superintendent of the schools, was
unanimously re-elected superintendent.
Mr. Salley has given a most capable
and efficient administration for the" past
two years and his services are appre

Traynham Guards Will Not Go to Sulli
The 1st Regiment, of which Trayn
ham Guards of Laurens is a member,
will not go on the encampment at Sulli
van's Island as proposed. So says a dis
patch from Columbia:
The second and third regiments will
go into camp at Sullivan's Island the
latter part of June, instead of the third
and first, according to an announcement
made by General Boyd upon his return
from the up-country inspections today.
It was found impractical for the first to
go to Charleston on account of the large
number of farmers and because Colonel
Lewis has duties in court at that time.
The first will go into camp later some
where in the State or at Ghickamauga.
General Boyd reports the up-coumiy
companies in the host condition in their
history. Not a single absentee in the
first battalion inspections.

MISS ETHEL ROOSEVELT
AT AMATEUR ENGINEER.
President's Daughter.. at Throttle of
Locomotive on Atlanta & West
Atlanta, Ga., April 4.?Miss Ethel
Roosevelt, daughter of the president
stood at the throttle of the Atlanta
and West Point train when it steamed
into Atlanta at noon today. She had
been its engineer all the way from
Newnan and had brought it into the
terminal depot here just six minutes
ahead of schedule.
"I'm so sorry it's over with," she
said to Eugineer John T. Still, when
the train slowed down and came to a
standstill under the shed. "This has
been the jolliest hour of my whole life.
I guess I'm the only presidents daugh
ter who ever ran an engine."
It was just before the train pulled
out from Newnan that Engineer Still
heard a girl's voice behind him calling:
"May'n I come across and watch you,
Turning, Mr. Still saw the daughter
of the president of the United States
on the tender. Some man waited near
her and explained to the engineer that
Miss Ethel had been teasing her
mother for a ride on the engine. She
had slipped away from the parlor car
it seems, before Mrs. Roosevelt could
realize what was happening and there
Engineer Still stretched forth his big
hand and lifted her to the scat near
"I suppose you'd like to run the mo
gul?" he asked.
"Oh, if you would be good enough to
let me," answered Miss Ethel. A min
ute later her palm had closed over the
throttle. "Now pull open the lever,"
said the engineer. Miss Ethel pulled
with all her might and off rolled the
train while she laughed delightedly at
what she bad done.
