on the afternoon train and
plated him in the State penitentiary
for safe-keeping. The people
in and around Georgetown
and ifosetnarv were terribly j
worked up over the outrageous '
crime, and had not the Sheriff
used every precaution tor his'
protection, no doubt the brute

now to a lamp post. Sheriff',

The negro, Albert Bellany,
who committed murder in the
town of Harpers in August, 1908,
Vas tried in Georgetown last
week and found guilty of manslaughter,
being sentenced by
Judge John S Wilson to live
years in the penitentiary. This
case is clear m the minds of The
Kecord's readers. The aegro
< took a rail and struck Charlie
Scott on the boad, killing him
instantly. This family of Hannah
negroes are notorious in the
counties of Williamsburg and
Georgetown for their crimes.
fve Hannah, who was tried in
lliamsburg county some years
* ago for the murder of his own
father, Alfred Hannah, is a brother
of Albert Hannah, alias
Bellany: also Alton Hannah, another
brother, was tried in
Georgetown county three years
ago and sentenced to 4 V years on
the chaingang for 'housebreaking
and larceny, escaping from
o-nnrr within three months
? ? ^ ?o
and being: now at large. It will
be remembered that Sheriff Graham
arrested Albert Hannah for
this crime while he was whitewashing
the jail. He was at the
time living on Mr James Epps'
plantation and had given
goods of considerable value to
nearly all the negroes on the
place, which were recovered
and proven to be stolen from the
store of W 8 Camlin, Jr, of Harpers.
Every one of this set of
negroes was convicted before he
was 18 years old.

among elderly men. L E Morris,

ago my father suffered from kidney
and bladder trouble and several phy-1
sicians pronounced it enlargement of
the liver and advised an operation.
On account of his age we were afraid
he could not stand it and I recommended
Foley's Kidney Kemedy,
and the first bottle relieved him, and
after taking the second bottle he was
no longer troubled with this com- j
plaint." D C Scott.

BLACK BRUTE ASSAULTS WHITE WOMAN.
Young School Teacher in Georgetown
Has fearful Experience.
Georgetown, June ?At 4
o'clock this afternoon word was hurriedly
brought to Sherill Scurry that
a criminal assault had just been I
committed upon the person of a
young woman school teacher at Grab
Hall, a place immediately across
Winvah buy from Georgetown, on
Waccainaw Neck. Tne young lady!
boards at the home of Mr Iluck
Cains and while out driving with,
one ef the Cains children, a little
girl, she was dragged from the buggy
and carried into the woods by her;
assailant, who ordered the child to
llee at the peril of her life. The
child's father returned with her to j
the spot to fiud the young lady in a
terrible plight, and bloody from the j
fearful struggle which she had waged j
bravely. The man had tied.
THE NEGKO CAUGHT.
Georgetown, June 19:?By strate- j
gy Sheriff C W Scurry, having in ;
charge Alfied Jenkins, alias "Slippy i
Joint," the alleged assailant of the!
young lady school teacher on Wacca-j
maw yesterday, sent him out of town j
by automobile to Sampit station, j
? 1- ? ? A I. ? /?>.! fiP *??A4 am 4 1\ I m I
wuere tue sueriu jucu uuu tvuiv mu?
aboard the afternoon train for Columbia,thus
eluding the vigilance of
those who believed ir. executing summary
vengeance upon him. It was aj
most carefully planned scheme on
the part of the sheriff, which doubtles
saved his life temporarily. The
man was canght answering the description
giveu.in company with two
other negroes, and the foot priuts at
the scene and on the trail were identified
almost beyond the possibility
of a doubt. The trio were arrested.
It only remained for the man to be
identified by his intended victim.
The sheriff was the only one who
heard this testimony and reported
that it was very uncertain. The uncertainty
of its being the right man
undoubtedly averted a lynching.
The negro Jenkins is an ex-conI
vict and has recently returned from
,the Charleston chaingang. He is a
j native ef the Friendfield plantation,,
on Waccamaw Neck, but has always'
borne the character of an idle, worth-1
less fellow. He is aboit 20 years of
age and a black negro. He was dei
onriho/t ae hpinor VPfV hlaP.lf. and it
was found that he had painted hist
face blacker than the usual color
with soot and grease. This he had
attempted to remove, probably after
the crime. The dress of the young
lady was smeared with this grease. It
is stated that that the negro was
really identified absolutely when
taken before her. It is stated positively
that the youngv lady was Dot
harmed to any extent, as the man
was frightened off. She fought
bravely until Mr Cains came to herrescue.

SANDY GROVE MUST PAY
Pro Rata Share of Clarendon's Bonded
Debt-Liable to Be Doubly Taxed.
The following editorial from the
Manning Times puts the situation
sijuarelv up to the people of Saudv
Grove township. In the fac? of
existing circumstances the taxpayers

before putting themselves in a position
to be called on to "cough-up*'
for another court house.
"We caution the citizens of Sandy
(Jrove to be not deceived by some of
the fallacious statements now being
made to induce votes for the new
county. Clarendon has taken upou
herself a large bouded indebtedness,
$70,000, and Sandy Grove township,
whether it leaves Clareudon or
remains, will have to pay its proportion.
It is urged by some that
if the people of Saudy Grove township
will vote for the new county
they will escape taxation for Clarendon's
bonds. It is not true, but
ou the other hand, if they vote
themselves into a new county they
will not only have to pay their pro-'
portion on Clarendon's bonds, but
thev will also have to bear their
proportion of the expense for a new
court house, jail aud other public
buiidiugs. lu other words they will
be doublv taxed. The Iiutledge
county advocates claim that Lake
City will contribute enough money
to build a court house and jail. We
do not believe anything of the sort.
Other towns have made similar
promises, but so far as we know,
the promise failed immediately after
the new county was created. There
is the new oounty of Calhoun. All
manner of promises were made by
the town of St Matthews before the
county was created. St Matthews
became the county seat a I as yet
no court house has been built and
will not be built until the county is
bonded to raise the money.
"If the Lake City or Olanta people
are in earnest to have their towns
the county seats let them deposit not
less than $50,000 in trust iu some
bank, conditioned upon the failure
to secure the county seat, the money
to be refunded, but if the county
seat is secured, this $50,000 be expended
in the necessary public
buildings. If this is done, it will end
the new county agitation.
"The people of Sandy Grove hold
the key to the situation. They can
and should demand relief from any
taxation for public bnildings in a
j new county, aud, too, they should
I have a say ro in the character of
i - ?- .4
public DQildiDgs co go up; uecause 11
the projectors of the new county
scheme desiring to speculate on Lake
City property find they must prom<
ise to build a court house and jail,
unless the character of buildings are
specified, they can put up inexpensire
shacks, and later on after they
hare the Sandy Grorers in their
trap, by force of numbers, force
upon them a heary bond issue tc
erect first class public buildings.
Be not deceired by the tempting
promises of the new county advocates.
We hare been told that s
prominent citizen of Sandy Grove,
now a warm supporter of Rutledge
county, has been promised the office
of clerk of court. Just how manj
others in that township hare been
promised the public offices we dc
not know, bnt we do know thai
the goods cannot be delivered, because
the county offices hare to b<
voted for, and no man or set of men
can control the votes of a people.
We do not want Clarendon to berl

by local applications,as they caannot

There is only one way tocuredeaf?
ness, and that is by. constitutional
remedies. Deafness is caused by at
inflamed condition of the mucous lin

this tube is inflamed you have s
rumbling sound or imperfect hearing.and
when it is entirely closed,
Deafness is the result,and unless the
inflammation can be taken out and
this tube restored to its normal condition,
hearing will be destroyed forever;
nine cases out of ten are caused
by Catarrh, which is nothing but an
inflamed condition of the mucous

Still was the passenger oblivious.

said the conductor, "I imply no reference
