THE DURANT HARDWARE C3.
An Old and Prosperous Establishment to
be'Incorporated January 1st.
F With the beginning of the new jear
the hardware busine-s of L. B. Durant
will be reorganized as the Durant
Hardware Co., with the tollowing
officers: President L. B. Durant; Vice
President and General Manager, R.
K. Wilder: Secretary and Treasurer,
Perry M. Parrot t
The business will be continued at
the same stand, and the same sound
business policy, conservativ? yet pro?
gressive, that has ?esulted in the
continuous growth of the business
throughout its existence of more than
twenty years, will mark its future.
Messrs.Wilder and Parrott, who will
be associated with Mr. Durant in the
management of the company, are young
men of business experience, energetic
and possessed of the qualities to make
any enterprise with which they are
connected a success.
The Durant hardware business was
established a little more than twenty
years ago by Messrs. R. W. and L. B.
Durant and was conducted under the
name of B. W. Durant & Son until
the retirement of the senior member
of the firm abouf six years ago. At
the time it was established it was one
of the few excluisve hardware concerns
in this section of the State and was
viewed as a risk by some people who
still held to the theory that the only
business that could succeed hereabouts
was a general. store carrying a stock
of everything from silks to hardware.
The Messrs. Durant, jhowever, suc?
ceeded from the first and in a few
year* bad built up a business that
drew trade from several surrounding
counties. The success of the past is
a guarantee of the future, and the
young blood now to be infused in the
business should make things move
faster and lengthen the strides along
the road of prosperity and success.
STILL2TALKING FESTIVAL.
Prominent Men From all Sections of the
State Compliment Game Cock City.
Hon. T. B. Fraser, who attended a
meeting of a Legislative committee in
Columbia Thursday, stated to an It?m
representative that he found repre:
sentative men from all sections of the
Star j still talking about Sumter's Fall
Festival and its signal success.
At least a dozen or more men of
affairs brought up. the subject while
in conversation with him and com?
mented upon the widespread interest
aroused by Sumter's Festival, and the
point that impressed Mr.. Fraser most
was the fact that not one of those
who discussed the Festival with him
visited Sumter.
These gentlemen seemed to have had
their attention riveted by the enthusi?
asm that the Festival aroused amongst
the people who had visited Sumter
ana participated in the festivities.
The people all over South Carolina
are still talking admiringly of the
Festival and of Sumter, and the fame
of it grows, instead of fading, now
that it is over.
Mr. Fraser's statement is but an?
other proof that the Festival accom?
plished its purpose, and while the Fes?
tival itself is past and is becoming
somewhat trite as a subject for dis?
cussion the people of the city cannot
but be gratified to learn that our
friends to the farthest confines of the
State are still talking of the Festival
as a noteworthy success. *

THE FIRST IMMIGRANTS.
Scotch Mechanics at The Sumter Tele?
phone Manufacturing Co.
State commissioner of immigration,
E. J. Watson, has prevailed upon Mr.
F. C. Manning, the manager of the
Sumter Telephone Mfg. Co., to give
employment to five young Scotchmen,
from the northern part of Scotland,
in the shops of the factory. The
young men are, Messrs. Donald Gor?
don, Robert Burns, John McEinnie,
Campbell McGregor, and John Mar?
shall. They are mechanics, machin?
ists and engineers, and Mr. Manning
is very favorably impressed with
them.
Two brothers, Messrs, James Wright
and Edward Allen have gone to Ale??
la, where they will very likely be
employed by Mr. Alderman.
AN INTERESTING MAN.
Founied the Town of Tbomasville, N. C.
Mr. L. L. Thomas, of Tbomasville,
N. C., the father of County Commis?
sioner F. E. Thomas, of Wedgefield, is
making his annual winter visit to our
county, and is iu his usual good
health, notwithstanding his extreme
agp. He will complete his S6th year
cn the 18th of this month.
The following notice ct him is from
a recent issue of the Salisburv, 2s. C.,
Sun:
*4lhe Sun received a'pleasant call
this morning from Mr. L. L. Thomas,
o? TLcroasvilie.
Mr. Thomas built the first house in
the town of Tbomasville and named
the place in honor-of his father, Mr.
John W. Thomas. He claims to be
the oldest Mason in North Carolina,
having joined this fraternity in 1816.
Mr. Thomas now carries the watch
which kept the time for the running
of th* first trains over the North Caro?
lina Railroad. He is an old Confede?
rate soldier and was at the Yadkin
river bridge with Bradley T. Johnston
when the surrender was made.
Mr. Thomas is 86 years old, but his
looks do not indicate that age. He is
an interesting talker. This is his first
trip to Salisbury since the surrender."

THE CONWAY-SUMTER RAILROAD.
Construction, at the Conway End Going
Forward and the Entire Plan to Build
to Marion and Sumter Will be
Carried Out.
From the Daily Item, Dec. 2.
The Daily Item has received au?
thoritative information that the pro
jecte?Vrailroad from Conway to this
city is a certainty, that it has passed
the problematical stage and nothing
now remains bat to bnild the read and
start the cars to running.
In a conversation with a gentleman
this morning, who had an interview
with Hon. R. C. Scarborough of Con?
way within the past ten days, the pos?
itive statement was made that the
railroad would be built and that there
would be no long and vexatious de?
lays about it. Mr. Scarborough, who
is closely identified with the capital?
ists who are promoting and financing
the railroad, stated that Messrs. Bur?
roughs & Collins have undertaken to
build the first ten miles of the road
from Conway to Cool Spring, where
it will branch, one line going to
Marion and the other coming to Sum?
ter. They have made ali arrange?
ments to carry ont their undertaking
and are now actively at work. For
the construction of the remainder of
the road the capital will be supplied
by ouside capitalists of practically un?
linked resources, who have agreed to
finance the underaking after the first
ten miles have been completed.
This is news of the first importance
to Sumter, inasmuch as it will open
up a ?large and naturally very rich, but
undeveloped territory, from which
we are now shut out, a territory that
offers the greatest oportunities for the
development of wholesale and retail
trade. Beyond and above this, how?
ever, the new railroad will give Sum?
ter another outlet to the ocean, for
the road from Conway is beine ex?
tended to Southport via Little River.
Southport is forging to the front as a
port of entry and when the Sumter
and Conway line is completed South?
port will at once advance to the rank
of a distributing center.
With the Sumter and Northern to
McBee, which will give the shortest
and most direct line to Norfolk, via
the Seaboard Air Line, and the Sum
ter and Conway, giving an outlet at
Southport, this city should, within^ a
few years, become the chief interior
distributing center of interior South
Carolina. If our business men will
but rise to the opportunity and sieze
the advantges that the railroad facili?
ties will afford, Sumter should be a
big town within the next decade.
THE PAYMENT OF TAXES.
County Treasurer Has Taken In More
This Year Than Last, But the City
Treasurer Hurst Reports Less
Receipts.
From, the Daily Item, Dec. 2.
The prosperous condition is reflected
to some extent in the tax receipts of
the County Treasurer, the total
amount received tc date being conside?
rably larger than the total to the same
date last year.
The following comparative statement
was obtained from County Treasurer
Lee this mornine:
Receipts from October 15 to Decem?
ber 1st. 1903, 87,851.30.
Rpceints from October 15 to Decem?
ber 1st 1904, 89,412.78.
Difference in favor of 1904, $1,
560.48.
While there is no rush to pay State
and county taxes. Mr. Lee states that
the taxpayers are coming in steadily
and dischareins their obligations
The outlook at present is that there
will be fewer delinquents than for
many years.
At the City Treasurer's office a dif?
ferent conditiou exists, and there is no
explanation, for it, as the town has
shared in the general prosperity of the
county and money seems to be as
plentiful as last year.
The amount received up to December
1st, 1908, by City Treasurer Hurst was
$4,260.1)5: while the amount received
by him to the same date this year was
only $1,896.08, leaving a deficit as
compared with last year, of $2,363.97.
Mr. Hurst says that within the past
few days be bas been busy issuing
receipts and be hopes that the end of
the month will show that the deficit
has more tban been made good.
AN ATTEMPTED SUICIDE.
Mr. Robert W. Terry Shoots Himself
Through the Right Lung.
From the Daily Item, Dec. 1.
? startling and well nigh successful
effort to commit suicide was made on
the piazza of the Mood-Osteen Infir?
mary about 10 o'clock Wednesday
night by Mr. Robert W. Terry, a
youug man ?ell known in this city.
He spent last week in the city and
remained after the close of the Fes?
tival. It is said that he had been
drinking steadily for several days, and
at the hotel where he was stopping
his coudition was observed by several
of bis friends.
Last night he went to the
Infirmary, and, while talking to
one of the nurses with whom he was
acquainted, who went to the door
when he rang the bell, he drew a pis?
tol and shot himself through the right
lung. The shooting was witnessed by
one or more persons who were passing
or happened to be on their piazzas at
tiie time.
Mr. Terry was given prompt atten?
tion by Dr. Mood, and this morning
he was resting easily and it is thought
that he will recover, although at first
there seemed to be no hope.
There was no cause for the rash act,
and the only explanation offered is
that he was temporarily insane from
tho effects of liquor.

AN EARLY MORNING FIRE.
Several Frame Buildings On East Liberty
Street Destroyed.
A fire of considerable size occurred
early Thursday morning beginning at 4
'o'clock. It seems to have originated
in one of the old frame buildings east
of the building recently occupied by
the Freeman, and swept eastward to
the house of Delgar Reel Squad. The
buildings that were consumed were
principally little shacks, which have
disfignred Liberty street for a number
of years, and the city bas lost no or?
nament by their destruction. Since
all the property is well insured, it is
hoped that creditable buildings will
take the place of those that were
burned.
The firemen,as usual, worked quick?
ly and intelligently as well as zealous?
ly and by so doing confined the flames
to a small area and prevented the de?
struction of a great deal of valuable
property, for it is almost certain that
had the fire been permitted to get
across the alley to the west of the
building lately occupied by the Free?
man office the entire block of stores,
facing ou Main street and abutting
on the rear on the frame buildings
west of the alley, would have been
endangered.
Mr. Geo. W. Reardon, whose pro?
perty lies west of the alley and which
was in the greatest danger of destruc?
tion for an hour or more, Thursday
sent a check for $10 to each of the
hose co.npauies in token of his appre?
ciation of their work to save his pro?
perty.
Mr. W. ll. Delgar who ran a re?
staurant during the Festival in the
building in which the fire is said to
have originated lost a lot of chairs,
tables and other fixtures, but as he
had the contents of the building in?
sured his loss will not be great.
THE SUMTER AND NORTHERN R. R.
The Preliminary Survey Actively Under
Way.
\From the Daily Item Dec. 1.
The preliminary survey cf the pro?
posed Sumter & Northern Railroad is
progressing as rapidly as possible to
bc consistent with careful and accu?
rate work. The survey is being made
by Capt. Thomas, of Atlanta, Ga., a
civil engineer of many years experi?
ence in railroad work,and Mr.W.L.Lee,
of this city, who is thoroughly famil?
iar with the country through which
the road will ran. The report that they
will file when the preliminary survey
has been completed will carry weight
not only with the local promoters, but
with thc railroad capitalists whose
financial aid it will be necessary to
invoke when the construction of the
road is actually commence/l. The
preliminary line has been run for a
distance of about three miles from
this, city and^acb day the surveying
party makes a substantial advance in
the direction of Bishopville. it is
tbooght that the road will pass
through Mechanicsville and Mann
ville, but the exact location of the
line caunot be known until the final
survey shall have been made, for that
isa matter that the contour of the
country will determine.
FOUNDRY AND MACHINE SHOPS
An Enterprise That has Been Planned
for the Future.
The organization cf the Sumter
Foundry and Machine Works, a com?
mission for which was obtained about
three weeks ago from thc Secretaiy
of State, is progressing satisfactorily.
All of the stock was subscribed as
soon as the commission was obtained,
iu fact, the matter of capital was all
arranged in advance, and there have
been numerous applications for stock
in excess of the amount authorized
Messrs. Geo. D. Shore, C. G. Row?
land and others of this city are inter?
ested in the enterprise, but the major?
ity of the stock has been taken by
men not now citizens of Sumter, Jout
who expect to make their home here
iu the near future. The first install?
ment on the capital stock has been
paid in and the company will be or?
ganized next week, probably, or just
as soon as it is convenient for the out
of-town stockholders to come to the
city for that purpose. The erection of
the buildings for the foundry and ma?
chine shops will be commenced within
the next sixty days and it is the pur?
pose of the men interested in the en?
terprise to have the shops completed
and ready for business about March
or April.
These shops will do not only a gen?
eral foundry and repair business, but
will from the first carry on a line of
manufacturing-probably making
wood working machinery-and the
manufacturing department will be
steadily enlarged as the basiness is de?
veloped. The promoters of this enter?
prise are looking to the future, and
their plans contemplate the develop?
ment of a big concern that will em?
ploy a large force of skilled workmen
and will do a great deal to increase
the prestige of Sumter as a manu?
facturing center.
A CH!LD*POIS"?NED.
Little Girl Finds Bottle of Carbolic Acid
and Drinks lt.
The four-year-old daughter of Mr.
C. D. Lide got hold of a bottle con?
taining carbolic acid Thursday and
drank a part of the contents. She be?
gan violently ill at once and at?
tracted the attention of her mother,
who summoned a physician immedi?
ately. She recieved prompt attention,
and while she is still quite sick, it, is
believed and hoped that she will ulti?
mately recover.
Mr. Lide had recently reinovd to his
present residence and ir is supposed
that the child Jfound the bottle^ con?
taining the acid in the yard where it
had been left by the previous occu?
pants of the house. The bottle was
found after the little girl had drank a
nortion of its contents and an exami?
