Two events of the week have an Im
portant Influence upon the business
situation, Inasmuch as tiny remove
much of the uncertainty which has
served to retard enterprise and dis
courage activity. These events are
the Supremo Court decision in one of
the cases Involving the status of big
corporations under the anti-trust law,
and the prospects of the restoration
of peace In .Mexico. Those develop
ments had the effect, of greatly in
crooslng transactions in the securities
market, always the most sensitive, and
quick to respond to new conditions.
Its Influence is also felt to a moderate
extent in the leading trades and in
dustries. l?or the first time In many '
weeks the reports from Iho lending
trade centers are more buoyant In
tone, though it. would not appear that
the actual gain In volume of transac
tions hits been much, if any. This
improvement in business sentiment
appears in the reports from the iron
and steel trade, where in spite of con
tinued contraction and price conces
sions in pic iron, a better fooling Is I
noted, with some Increased orders
from railroads. It also appears to tl
limited degree In the textile markets,
which report some improvement, not
Withstanding the continued curtail
ment due largely to tho high cost of
production and tho conservative pur
chases by consumers, it is noteworthy
that the more seasonable weather
stimulates a larger retail distribution,
ami the continued line prospects for
the crops have an encouraging effeel
upon trade, Tho wheat conditions are
admirable in every essential, while the
cotton outlook is also favorable. The
shoe trade is conservatively improved.
The copper market appears steadier.
The issue of Panama Canal bonds is
expected to be an unqualified succ iss.
Railroad earnings 111 the first week
of May decreased 1,3 per cent. Hank
clearings outside of New York this
week gained 0.3 per cent, and CO per
cent, over the two preceding yea's;
in New York there was a gain of '
per cent, over 1910 and a loss of U..".
per cent, from 1909. The improve
ment in tho export trade, which has
been one of the best features of tho
past few months, keeps up. At New
York in the lastest week exports were
$10,269,140, or only $1,112,753 less than
the imports, while last year the ex.
cess of imports was $3.90S,509 and in ,
1909 was 3,308,579.
Production in nearly all lines of lex
tile is increasingly limited because of
the reduced margin of profit. and this,
too, concurrently with a better tone
to reports concerning prospects for
improved trade. Warmer weather has
given some impetus to distribution of
dry goods id retail and in a limited
way the effect of this is reflected in an
increased number of small orders for
seasonable merchandise. The export ;
movement of cotton goods continues
well idiend of last year and more ac
tive buying of printed fabrics lias fol
lowed the large purchase s of print
Cloths a week ago. Some factors of
strength have developed in the woolen
goods market, among them a not Ice by
tho leading producer cd' mon's wear
that it could receive no more orders
after June 1. and the nOtnblo activity
at some other mills making novelties
or specialties in tint class of goods.
New high records are constantly be
ing made in cotton, both spot and the
July option rising above 10 cents. Liq
uidation was heave in the hitter do
livery, but offerings were well absorb
ed. Rain is needed in some sections'
of the belt, yet as a whole crop pros
pects are favorable, with conditions
in Texas especially promising. The
reactionary tendency in wheat con
tinues, although prices fluctuate with
considerable irregularity. Tho dome,
tic crop outlook leaves little to be de
?ired and harvesting of winter wheat
will begin in Kansas in about a month. >

Tho following bit of dueling history
In Laurens County. Oppenrod in a re

county and now u citizen of Greenwood
and a constant contributor to The In
To The Index:
I have been requested to write my
exporlenc in dueling and having it
in I8CU 1 opened a marble yard at
Laurens Court lions-, at that time the
negroes were in the majority in poli
tic;;. They were simply outrageous,
being led by low down white men
and among those whites was one Hen
ry Uurbngo, as t rift ing a white man
as ever lived. He and his mother
lived on the public square and nfllHat
ed with negroes only. One night some
of the boys shot through their win
dow with a sling shot (It was Jeff
Grimes) and Durbnge tried to get a
warrant for me hut the negro trial
justice was notified that if he granted
Burbage a warrant it would be bosl
to make his funeral arrangements be.
fore ho did it. Several of my intimate
friends told RurbagO If he wanted to
scare and run me out of town, the
best thing for him to do was to chal
lenge me for a duel, that 1 would run
before 1 would light, and tho boys
(my friends, bear in iriind,) selected
his second, Win. Motto, who brought
me Iiis challenge, which 1 accepted
and named double barrel shot guns
at thlrty-IIVe pace.-- to be loaded with
buck shot. Tho boys were cheering
I'.urhago and telling him 1 could not
stand it. my war record said 1 never
was in a battle and 1 would run. Tin1
morning of the duel we assembled
down on little river. Below the Ceme
tery, was a narrow piece of sandy
bottom Immediately on tho bank of
(he river. Jeff Grimes measured the
ground, and drove up Stakes and we
were placed and instructed etc. I
was shaking with a Buck Ague. Dr.
Black had a pint bottle of water in his
pocket. Kip ('. told him to give
Dock a dram for he was about to fall.
The Doctor put the bottle to my
mouth as if he was drenching me.

my face, fanned me with his hat and j
Stopped aside and the word, make
re.uly, take aim, one, two. three. Bur- ;
bnge raised his gun nearly porpeu- j
dioilltir and ii having been fixed on j
purpose, it exploded. I took dollber
nt ? aim at him and tired, lie jumped
in the river, and as he was climbing
out on the opposite bank. I llrod
again. He hollored, "Oh, Lord." and:
I have never seen him since and
nobody else. Ho loft for good. Lau

Wo had another mean young white
man with only one arm from Massa

den Laving about that time. His
name was Freeman.

powder and just cotton enough to keep
the powder in the gun but DurbugO did
not know it.
