Many Marriages in the Past Year.
To those who have not thought of
It, the fact that there have been over
four hundred marriages in this coun?
ty in the past year will come as a
surprise, yet, nevertheless, Ihis fact
is corroborated by the books In the
office of the county clerk of BOUrt, in
which every marriage license issued
by him is recorded.
The records show that up to July 1.
just one year after the marriage li?
cense law went into effect, 191 mar?
riage licenses were Issued to white
couples and to colored couples,
making a total of 407 licenses to
iarry issued in the course of the
?ar. It is presumed that all of
aese were used.

Will Go Into Camp.
The Sumter Light Infantry will
leave here July 26th to go into camp
at Annlston, Ala. They go as part
of the Second Regiment X. G. S. C.
and while that regiment Is there re?
giments will be there from other
States. The militia from South Caro?
lina, Georgia, Alabama and Tennes?
see will be camped there this sum?
mer, and while there will be under
the instruction of United States of?
ficers. The camp ground used is
the same used by United States
troops during the Spanish war.
Xow that the sewer repairs are
practically completed it is about time
that those drain pipes on Washington
street, Hampton avenue anc. other
streets were taken up and :leaned
out. After each rain a regular pond
is formed at the corners on these
streets where the drain pipes need to
be (deaned. much to the annoyance
Of the residents of these sections.
But perhaps it may be better to wait
until we get our new government and
a manager who will know how to in?
stall sand traps and trash gratings.
bo that the drain pipes Will not get
choked up again in a short time.
The last of the work on the Salem
avenue sewer is now being done. The
timbers are being taken out of the
excavation and the big hole In the
street is rapidly being RUecl with
earth. It is probable that two more
days will see the last of the work

AN AGE OF PROGRESS
=Has been Nominated For=
= of the United States ??
on a progressive democratic platform with the
chances for his election more favorable than any
democratic nominee in the past fifty years. It
is needless to say that this house is a believer in
the progressive idea, for that has been our plat?
form for more than
A QUARTER OF A CENTURY
and to that probably, more than any thing else,
is attributable the success which we have achiev?
ed. We are always looking ahead in the interest
of our patrons, and have been fortunate in sav?
ing them many dollars by the exercise of our
judgment. We were fortunate in contracting
for our bagging this year as soon as the market
opened and already have saved many dollars by
the transaction which our friends will share the
benefit of, and all our information is to the effect
that the market is going higher. We have ar?
ranged our contracts so that we can ship
Bagging 6 Ties in Small Lots
not less than 5 rolls bagging or five bundles of
ties, direct from the factory at the same rate
that we would have to pay for car lots and there?
by save our customers the local freight from
Sumter to their nearest station, and we are now
prepared to make contracts for shipment the lat?
ter part of this month, sooner if necessary, pay?
able October first, where the responsibility of
the partyLis known to us.
Our Offerings Consist of?
New Jute Bagging all Weights.
Second hand Jute Bagging 2 lb. only.
Sugar Sack Bagging 2 and 3 lb.
Standard New Arrow Ties.
New Jute Bagging is put up in 50 yard rolls.
Second hand Jute Bagging in 30 yard rolls.
Sugar Sack Bagging is put up in 30 yard rolls, 10 rolls
to the bale, and we can not ship less than a bale from
the factory. Where a bale of Sugar Sack is too much
for one party two or three could buy it together, we
would consign it to ono of them, and divide the
charge as desired. Don't send us orders for Second
hand ties, we do not handle them.
