Kditor The Advertiser:
In the account of the deatli of little
LoIs Childers at. Simpsonville there
occurred an error when it was stated
that the child was run over and killed.
The child started to cross the street
and the driver. swerved to the right,
missing the child :wIth the front wheel.
The child did not stop, .but came on,
running into the car at the left rear
wheel. It was rushed to the City los
pital at Greenville, where it died sonic
time .\Monday night. The occupants of
the car were M\r. Culver Sumiieel, as
driver, Mir. and .\rs. .J. M..Sumerel and
two chIldren. None r'egiret the accI
dent more than we do, but we feel that
It was entIrely un'avoida,ble.

dealt with the cotton situation froni

that the present acute financial strin

iad loaned to the limit of their ability
ind that. the farmers must sell at least
i small part of their crop to relieve
Ate stringency. 'Comparing the pres
