The Doctors are Moving Him to
The physicians carried into effect their plan
of moving the President from the White
House this morning, and at two minutes past
eight Tom Scott's palace car passed Baltimore
containing the President.
It is to be sincerely hoped that the change
from Washington to Long Branch will have
the desired effect upon our almost lifeless
It is thought that this is thela3t resort, and j
if this fails to benefit the President, the doc- j
tors will be at their row's end. It will be a j
miracle if he recovers, but the Nation will i
pray and hope to the last. The following |
telegram received from Baltimore, is the latest: j
BALTIMORE, MD., Sept. 6, 1881. |
The train with the Presideut passed Union j
Depot at 8.02 A. M.
The President has stood the fatigue of his !
travel, up to this hour, with remarkable for- j
titude. His pulse is even less frequent than it
was before leaving Washington. It is now 106
The arrangement is so complete in every
respect that the inconvenience to the Presi?
dent is reduced almost to a minimum.
The bed upon which he is now lying is so
carefully adjusted that the vibration is hard?
ly noticeable. The train rau from Washing?
ton to Baltimore at an average speed of thirty
miles per hour. It is found that this rate of j
speed causes less annoyance to the President
than if it was reduced one half.
At 7 o'clock the President took three
ounces of beef tea, with relish.

COL. T. Y. WALSH

fixing up a coffin. We hope he may not have

Craig's. A few days ago, he received 300 I
bedsteads which he offers to sell at $2.75 and j
upwards. Along with these he offers every- j
thing in his line from a full stock.
THOMAS C. SC AFFE
has put a stove in our paper to attract your;
sye. He is called the "Sumter Stove Man," j
*ud we guess the one who named him thus,
knew what he was doing. We know certain?
ly that he has a large stock of goods. His j
?toreseems to groan under i's burden. Mr. A. 1

deserves the support of our community. His
school is now open, and his terms are moder?
W. M. GRAHAM,
has enlarged his stables, and is offering every?
thing in his line-horses, mules, buggies,
carriages, wagons. The Old Hickory is his
favorite. It has wrought axles instead of
cast, and he will give a guarantee if you re?
quire it. His buggies ar? of various makes,
and we know it will pay you to give him a
visit; but we won't argue the case as we fee!
you will go there anyhow.
J. E. SUA RES
show? up his hand also every week. He offers
furniture of all kinds, window-shadei, wall?
paper, picture frames, looki-g-glasses, mat?

BULTMAN k BRO.,

the whole County. They can give you a fit
nt your own price, and have the largest stock
they have ever put on their shel ve?. They all
come from Der Vaterland; but are now citi?
zens of our commonwealth. Go in and hear
them tell about their goods.
J. F. \V. DELORME
is not behind thc times in his line. ??c is
prompt, punctual and patient. His stock is
continually receiving additions, and we know
from our own experience that he will deal
satisfactorily with you. We hope you won't
need any medicine ; but if you do, you can
get any thing from Dr. DeLorrae. He also
has a full linc of garden seeds for Fall plant?
C. H. MOISE
still holds forth in the Mayrant building, and
there offers to insure property and lives in
the best Insurance Companies in the world.
Also to adjust books, buy and sell Real Estate,
draw titles, bonds, mortgages and leases, and
to perform the duties of a Notary Public.
Thus have we laid before you twenty-five
of Sumter's business houses. More than six
thousand of you will read this paper. In be?
half of these firms we ask for your trade and
patronage. "Wc do not think they will de?
ceive you in any particular, and we know
they desire you to visit them. If you go to
them through our recommendation, and they
wrong you, we will guarantee an adjustment
of the wrong.
Other cards will appear in our paper soon,
of which a word in season will bc said.
