evening, was yesterday the f.Uo of

Three shots took effect In the body

where he found his rrlend lying dead
and his wife standing by.
Says She Was Insulted.
Her only answer to Mr. Hayes' ques
tioning was that Floyd had insulted
her and that she had killed him.
There is no telephone connection
between this place and Tabor but sev

brought news of the killing around
which a cloud of mystery appears to
hang. The killing is the talk here

From a brother of the dead man it
was learned that Mr. Floyd had gone
to the house, where he met his death,
for the purpose of collecting for

There are conflicting rumors as to
Mr. Hayes' meeting Mr. Floyd at the

Here Good Reputation.
News of the awful occuranee was
a shock to the people of this county
and especially In Conway where Mr.
Floyd has lived an dworked for a
number of years. He was colporter
for the Wassainaw Baptist association
which work carried him into the best
homes of this county and of Marion
county, where he traveled quite a good
deal during the past several years.
Three years ago he resigned this
work to accept a position as head
bookkeeper in the Hank of Conway,
now the First National Hank of Con

tliis capacity until the summer of
1909, when he resigned this position
and made the race in this county for
clerk of court. Ho made a splendid
race but was defeated and later en

have graduated in April.

Worth of Shoes
These are stupendous figures, yet this is the yearly
amount that the South spends for shoes. As a curiosity
these figures may attract you for a minute, but the most
curious thing about them is that three quarters of this
money is regularly sent away from the South and the
South is that much poorer for it.
You tradv at a Southern shoe store. You give the
dealer your money. You probably buy a western or
northern made shoe. When the dealer pays his bill, this
money, less a small per cent to. the dealer, goes north or
west and the South is that much poorer.
Keep your money at home. Let it work for better
