0. M. Jamieson Sells to Summer Bros.,
Who Will Henceforth Conduct the
Lafge Clothing Business.
A-iafg "business transaction was con
cluded in this city on Friday, when the
clothing'establishment for many years
so successfully conducted by Mr. 0. M.
Jamieson, passed into the hands of the
Messrs. Summer Brothers.
The business will be continued by
Summer Brothers at the same stand,
and will be managed by Mr. J. H. Sum
mer. Mr. R. C. Perry, the popular chief
clerk, and all his associates, will be re
The Messrs. Summer Brothers have
had a remarkable career since they first
entered business in Newberry 'some 12
or 14 years ago. At that time they
started as small merchants on a very
small scale. Today they are conducting
one of the largest general grocery busi
nesses in the city and one that will com
pare favorably with any in the State.
In connection with the grocery business
is conducted a dry goods and clothing
house. In adddition to this they are
nte-ested in many of the city's largest
ei; prises, and M r. Geo. W. Summer
is the very successful president of the
Mollohon cotton mill, whose capital
stock it has just been decided to in
crease to $500,000. A good record, and
one made by hard work and strict atten
tion to business, and the use of business
The purchase of the business hitherto
conducted by Mr. Jamieson gives these
gentlemen control of one of the largest
clothing businesses in the State. There
is no doubt its management will be at
tended by the same success that has
marked their previous efforts.
To Report on State's Finances.
Senator Geo. S. Mower, of Newberry,
was appointed one of the members from
the Senate of a committee consisting
of two Senators and three Representa
tives, who shall sit during the recess
for the purpose of considering some
plan to put the financial affairs of the
State on a cash basis, to consider what
additional sorces of revenue may be de
sired and to suggest changes in assess
ments and the manner of collecting
taxes. The committee was appointed
by the Speaker of the House and the

fifteen days, and will report to the
Governor by January 1, 1904. The
other members of the committee, are
Senator Manning, Representatives
Moses, Jno. P. Thomas, Jr., and W.
Card of Thanks.
I take this occasion to express my
sincere appreciation of the generous
manner in which the people of New
berry County have bestowed their
patronage upon me in my business
career begun here about eighteen
years ago. During all these years their
patronage has been liberal and con
stant, and my wish for each one and
all of them is that they may be
blessed with abundant prosperity in the
years to come. Respectfully, -
Newberry, S. C., 0. M. Jameson.

The work of raising ten thousand dol

equestrian statue to the memory of
General Wade Hampton will be under

is located in Columbia and desires that
all contributions shall be sent to Gene

There should be not the least amount
of diffculty in raising the money. The
people are not asked to contribute vol
untarily because the State is too poor
to erect a suitable monument, but be
cause it is believed that they desire
personally to aid in the work. No time
should be lost, however, and there
should be no need of argument. It is
desired to begin the work of erecting
the monument at once. That fact

Lard Expensive and Injurious.
Lard is not only expensive but in
jurious to the health~ when usedI in
liberal quantities. To make the so
called cheap p)atent flours white enough,
the life is all ground out of the flour;
then it is necessary to load it up with
lard in order to make it work. This
accounts largely for your heavy his
cuits andl rolls and your bad digestion.
It takes less than one-half the lard to
work "Clifton" that it does the cheap
patents, so you not only save more
than the dlifference in price but get a
more healthful and nutritious food pro

Tribe Organized at Whitmire Last Night
Great Sachem Hair Talks of The Order.
Great Sachem of the Improved Order
Red Men J. H. Hair, accom.-anied by a
team consisting of Messrs. E. S. Werts,
J. M. Guinn, W. B. Thompson, John
Darby, I. O. Burton, Sheriff M. M.
Buford and Dr. Van Smith went yes
terday to Whitmire, where last night
they instituted a Tribe of Red Men with
twenty-five charter members.
The Tribe at Whitmire makes the
sixth Tribe organized during the period
Mr. Hair has been at the head of the
Order in South Carolina. He is ex
pecting soon to institute two more
Tribes, one at Columbia and one at
Rock Hill; and efforts are being made
to organize another at Greenwood Mr.
Hair believes in the Order and , ,rks
for its success. His term as Great
Sachem will expire on the 14th day of
April, at which time he will become
Great Prophet. In conversation yes
terday he memtioned the fact that the
Red Men are now stronger numerically
and financially than at any previous
time in their history, and the
growth continues rapid. Bergell Tribe
in this city is in a very flourishing con
dition and welcomes the organization of
a second Tribe in Newberry County.
Dr. Kinard Highly Honored.
The following from The State of yes
terday will be read with pleasure by
Dr. Kinard's many friends in Newberry:
Rev. Dr. M. M. Kinard preached his
last sermon to the Ebenezer Lutheran
congregation yesterday morning, and
his closing words were a beautiful cli
max to a long and faithful pastorate.
He has labored in Columbia for 16 years
and has gained the love and respect of
hundreds of Columbians through his
good work and genial disposition.
Dr. Kinard is a man of prepossessing
appearance and he will make friends
wherever he goes. He is one of the
foremost ministers in the Lutheran
church, having been identified with some
of the most important positions that
denomination affords. His term as
president of the 'outh Carolina synod
was a most successful one, andl he dis
played great tact as a leader in the
Christian affairs of that distinguished
Dr. Kinard was devoted to his own
congregation, and the beautiful edifice
is the result of his labors. He worked
hard and faithfully, having the inter
ests of Christianity at heart, and it
must be a great source of satisfaction
to him the beautiful "Well (lone thou
good and faithful servant."
Dr. Kinard will leave Columbia next
Thursday morning. His removai is a
distinct loss to the city of Columbia,
and it can be truly said, Columbia's loss
is Knoxville's gain.
Yesterday morning immediately after
the services were concluded Ebenezer
congregation presented Dr. Kinard with
testimonials of their love, esteem and
appreciation. The congregation remain
ed seated and Messrs. W. F. Stieglitz,
F. W. Seegers and M. M. Earhardt ad
vanced to the chancel to present their
beloved pastor a handsome loving cup
and a wvell filled purse. Mr. Stieglitz
presented the testimonials in a few well
chosen words, which wvere responded to
briefly but touchingly -by Dr. Kinard.
The loving cup is a beautiful piece
of silverware mounted upon an ebony peC
destal. The cup bears the inscription:
Ebenezer Lutheran Congregation
Rev. Dr. M. M. Kinard
For Faithful Services
1887 to 1903.
The congregation that gathered in
Ebenezer church yesterdlay was one of
the largest that has met there since the
church was dedicated. Dr. Kinard chose
his text from Hebrews xi., 16: "He
hath p)rep)ared for them a city."
Stealing and Selling Tobacco.
John Suber, colored, wvho on last
Tuesday finished serving a sentence of
thirty clays on the county chaingang for
stealing a coat, goes back this morning
for another thirty. Saturday he was
observed to Dc selling tobacco on the
streets. He was arrested by Policemaa
Bedenbaugh and p)lacedl in the hands of
Chief Harris and Policeman Franklin
while Mr. Bedenbaugh wvent to investi
gate. Thirteen p)ounds of "Kite" to
bacco was found in a wagon on the
p)ublic square. Suber, when p)ressedl
admitted that he had applrop)riated it
from J. W. Kibler & Co., and on yes
terday morning he wvas given thirty
days by Mayor Earhardt. It is more
than probable that he will also be taken
in charge by Uncle Sam for selling to
bacco without license.

Salt pork is good if a man
can stomacu i,. The idea
behind it is thac fat is the
food the consumptive needs
Scott's Emulsion is he mod.
ern method of feeding fat to
the Consumptive. Pork is too
rough for sensitive stomachs.
Scott's IEuilsion is the most
refined of tits, especially
prepared for easy digestion.
Feeding him fit in this
way, which is often the only
way, is half the battle, but
Scott's Emulsion does more
than that. There is some
thing about the combination
of cod liver oil and hypophos
