.tingling Bros. Attract Tnusmil Inter
est with Many ?Ig Fentures.
Rlngling Brothers' circus is attract
ing unusual interest this season be
cause of its many new features and
the new aspect given the show by the
addition of the great spectacle, "Joan
of Arc". The circus will be seen in
Greenville on Wednesday, October
23rd and this city and surrounding
country will be well represented as it
always is when Mingling Brothers are
within excursion distance.
There will be a new parade In the
forenoon three miles in length. The
menagerie is practically twice as big
as it was last year and contains many
specimens of strange animal life new
to American zoos. Audiences will be
entertained by 375 of the greatest of
Europe's circus artists. Chief among
the stars who art exploiting novelties
and sensational acts are: the Ty-Bell
sisters, known as "The Human Butter
flies," whose remarkable aerial per
formance was the talk of Europe last
winter; Carlos Caesaro, known as "the
man with the Iron head"; the great
Rooney family of equestrians, the Cas
tiillon, the Hlnes-Kimball and the
Florence families of acrobats; Joseph
La Fleur, who does a backward dive
from the dome of the tent; the Schu
man performing horses, three herds of
trained elephants that are new to this
country, and Capt. Hullng's two troups
of trained seals and sea-lions. There
are many more big acts. Novelty and
freshness are the keynote of the per
formance and there are fifty clowns to
keep the audience in constant merri
The great feature of the show is of
course the newly added spectacle.
"Joan of Arc" with a trainload of spe
cial scenery, costumes and stage prop
erties and a cast of 1,200 characters.
There is also a ballet of 300 dancing
girls, a chorus of 100 voices and an or
chestra of 100 soloists. This is the
greatest dramatic and spectacular pro
duction ever presented in America, en
acted on a specially built stage bigger
than a hundred ordinary theatres. It
is made portaole so that It can be
erected in the main tent each morning.
This great entertainment is given ns
an Introductory to the regular circus
performance and entails no extra
charge of admission.
"Joan of Arc" tells a masterful
story from French history in a thril
ling and dramatic way and with the
wonderful illusion of tons of special
scenery and stage devices. In the
great battle scene the audience is held
spellbound by the realism of the scene,
while the enactment of the coronation
of Charles VII is beyond question the
most sumptuous and Inspiring stage
picture ever seeu. ll-2t

Serious Results Following Jnll-Brenk
lug nt Spartanburg when Laurens
Negro Lends (tang of Desperadoes.
Qaffney, Oct. 13.?Shortly after mid
night last night, a posse of Gaffney
men headed by Sheriff Thomas and |
Chief of Police Lockhart, waged a
pitched battle with four escaped con
victs from the Spartanburg county
chaingang. In the encounter Arthur
Hopper, a well known young white
man of the city and a member of tbe
posse was seriously injured by a shot
from the convicts while Earle Cole
man, a convict was ? shot by Chief
I^ockhart and George Fleming, anoth
er convict was shot by some other
member of the posse.
The convicts made their escape
from the chaingang yesterday at noon
from the Pacolet mills, by overpower
ing the guard and taking his pistol
away. They were leuu by Ellis Samp
son. One of the convicts voluntarily
returned to the chaingang. A mes
sage was phoned out to Sheriffs of all
the surrounding counties and last
night about 9 o'clock, Sheriff W. W.
Thomas began the formation of his J
posse. Accompanied by Deputy Sher
iffs Henry Lockhart and Joe Watkins, j
Rural Policeman Byars, Chief of Police
T. H. Lockhart and citizens Derbiu
Jones, John Spencer and Arthur Hop
per started out on a search for the
convicts. On the Union road In the.
eastern part of the city, about one
mile from town, the posse separated,
each ofllcer taking a separate sroad.
When Hopper was riding near Snug
sing's store he observed the four con
victs croachcd behind a bush. Alight
ing from his horse he advanced to
wards them, when one of them shot,
the bullet taking effect in the groin.
Notwithstanding the fact that he was
seriously injured, Hopper grappled
with one of the negroes and threw him
to the ground, holding him there until
the arrival of the^officers. When they
reached the scene, the other negroes
were fleeing and Chief Ixjcfthart shot
Coleman In the body. The two pris
oners were brought to the county jail,
while Mr. Hopper was carried to his
! home by Dr. J. C. Pittman. The phy
sician states that Hopper will prob
ably recover, while it is assured that
the negro convict shot by Chief Lock
hart will die.
Hardware stores In the city were
opened up last night and armed men
sent all over the country to search
for the two convicts still at large.
The search was kept up all last night
but no trace was obtained until this
morning. Rual Policeman Byars
with special Deputy Llold A ?Ittel
were searching the woods when Mr.
Austell came upon George Fleming.
The negro surrendered without a
struggle and was brought in to the
county jail, where It was discovered
that he too had been shot last night,
the bullet taking effect in his leg.
It was stated that the third man, Mil
ler is now surrendered a few miles
from the city and will soon be cap
tured. A large force of men have
been sent to the scene and every ef
fort is being made to definitely as
certain if the suspect is the negro
There wjis only one weapon in the
crowd of convicts and when Fleming
was captured this morning he had
it. It is therefore presumed that he
is the man who shot Mr. Hopper.
The negro still at large is Ellis
Sampson, who was the leader of the
party and it is expected that a des
perate battle will take place when
an effort is made to capture him.
Dr. .1. X. Nesbltt, county physician,
operated this morning on Coleman
and states that the bullet passed en
tirely through him. He will prob
ably not last through the day.
Sampson a Laurens Negro.
Ellis Sampson, the negro s|/okcn of
above, is the same Sampson who en
tered the stores of Clardy & Wilson,
W. H. Hudgons & Co., and others here
last winter and who was captured In
Spartanburg largely through the ef
forts of the Laurens olflcors. The
sheriff still has a warant for him to
be served when Sampson finishes his
twelve year sentence In Spartanburg.

? GOOD CROPS AND GOOD TIMES
Among the many prophets w^o have
lately been predicting a return of bus
iness prosperity there is one whose
voice speaks with special authority.
We refer to the Agricultural Depart
ment at Washington, whose recent]
announcement that tne crisis through
out the United States promise to be of
unusual abundance will do more to
stimulate confidence in the business
world than any official announcement
that has emanated rrom Washington
for many months past. Not that the
Agricultural Department has made any
definite prediction of a revival of bus
iness, for that does not come within
its province; but it is so generally un
derstood nowadays that thriving agri
culture Is the basis of general business!
prosperity that the announcement of]
a "bumper" crop has come to be tak
en as equivalent to a prediction of aj
The estimate of the probable crop
for this year presents an Imposing and
encouraging array of figures. The
wheat crop, which Is estimated at
over 700,000,000 bushels, should bring
to the farmer over $000,000,000. The
corn crop which is estimated at near
ly 3,000.000,000 bushels, has a farm val
ue estimated at $1.350,000,000; while
the value of the oats crop, which will
reach the highest figure in the his
tory of our country, or i,200,ooo,ooo
bushels, is not far short of $400,000.000.
Adding to this the value of the crop of j
rye and barley and the other moltltu
dious farm products, it is estimated
that the value of the products of our
farms at present prices will be over
$7.000,000,000. Not only does this vast
sum benefit the farmer by swelling his
bank account or by enabling him to
lift his burden of mortgage, but the
moving and disposal of t ie crop will
bring proportionate wealth in other di
rections; to the railroads for trans
portation, and to the steamship com-'
panics for carrying the surplus abroad
to the owners of the elevators, a vast
industry in itself; tc the owners of the
huge mills that turn It Into Hour, and
to the buyers and brokers, who bring
producer and consumer together.
Nor does the stimulus of plentiful
crops end with the mere matter of
! their sale and distribution. The farm
er himself becomes a large purchaser
of agricultural machinery, and the
general improvement of his farm by
the construction of new buildings, the
construction or renewal of fences, to
say nothing of the purchase of auto
mobiles and additional luxuries for
his home, not only directly stimulates
business in a wide variety of trades,
but, indirectly, reacts strongly in stim
ulating that revival of credit and con
fidence which is essential to any last
ing prosperity.?Scientilc American.

A HORSE IS NOT A MACHINE!
A horse cannot give continuous service. It tires easily and sometimes must have
rest in the middle of the day.
BUT THE "HUPMOBILE" IS DIFFERENT
Always in condition and fresh at the end of the run. It never tires and will take
yovi anywhere, no matter what the distance. Sand and hills make no difference, nor do
muddy roads for that matter. ?
The perfect simplicity of the working parts means fewer repairs, less attention?
eliminates the heavy expense bills. A truly economical and efficient car built for the pur
pose of giving uninterrupted service at low cost of upkeep.
THE DEEPER YOU GO INTO DETAIL THE GREATER
WILL GROW YOUR REGARD
The inside, not the outward appearance of a car, establishes its true value. For
this reason, we ask you not to let your first favorable impression end with your admiration
for the graceful design, the low strong lines, the comfortable upholstery of the long-stroke
Hupp "32." We prefer that you go deeper into the car and examine its motor, transmis
sion and axle construction. ?
WHAT MAKES PULLING
? First?The relation of piston stroke to
Second Tlie design of the 'motor.
Third?The efficiency of the carburetor.
Fourth?The simplicity of the chassis
Fifth? The degree to which friction is
sixth--The weight of the car.
LET US SHOW YOU
How these essentials have been accom
plished in the Hupp ":*'2".
First?The stroke is neither too long nor
too short, but in ratio to the bore is as 1.7
is to 1.
Second The cylinders of the motor are
east en bloc ; the valves at the side are pro
teeted from dust and dirt. Three liberal
crank shaft bearings are provided |o pre
clude the possibility of undue si rain.
Third -The carburetion is absolutely au
tomatic, insuring correct mixture at all
speeds and under all loads without adjust
Fourth The chassis is clean of every
complication; the motor, clutch and trans
mission are a compact weight-saving unit,
permanently aligned and dispensing with
a shal l and universal joint bei ween (?Intel)
and t ranstnission.
Fifth Friction is reduced to the limit
by the fines! hall and roller bearings; there
is hut one universal joint between transmis
sion and full-lloatillg real axle, giving a
practically straight line drive and the leasl
possible lost motion in the transmission of
Sixth The weight of the ear is from (wo
to throe hundred pounds under thai of most
cars of equal size and grade.
Each of these points is of unusual advan
tage; collectively they enable the motor to
