An Escapad Convict.
Supt. John J. .Cooler, of the State Farm j
at Hagood, was in the city Wednesday inj
pursuit of Prince McKnight, a convict who
escaped a day or so ago. He learned that
McKnight was in hiding near his former home

that neighborhood to continue his search, j
McKnight who was serving sentence for hog j
stealing, escaped while at work plowing corn !
in the swamp fields onthe State Farm The;
guards are stationed at the ends of the corn j
rows, and McKnight took advantage of this
to get away. In the middle of the field he
deserted his mule and plow and slipped away j
through the rank corn, the mule going on
to the end of the row ae if the plowmen was
between the handles. Mr. Cooler broueht i

trusty convict Mr. Cooley brought with him :
speut the night in the swamp where McKnight ? .
was last seen, but did not find him. Me- \ 1
Knight was still clad in his stripes when last
seen and it does not seem possible that be ,
can continue to elude arrest. McKnight escap- !
ed on Tuesday and came at once to this place, !
reaching town that night. He went to the j (
house where bis wife formerly lived and I
talked to a negro woman, who told bim that ? (
his wife had moved into the country. Oth- !
srs have seen him during the last two days, I

GOING WITH A BANG
generally makes a tremendous noise.
Noise is in order on the glorious Fourtb;
so are cur Summer Shoes wbicb, like
our prices, are low and ligbt. They
are the coolest things ever seen afoot,
and in summer coolness is comfort.
There's a point about our summer shoes
?tbeir durability. To state the case
fully, there's so much wear in them
that they outlast the season. We have
shoes for all, young aod old, men and
women, for all occasions and sorts of
wear, work, business, and pleasure.
Look well to your feet and secure such
shoe prizes, as present stock was bought
before the advance.
