S-Editor Buchanan, of the Ches ter Reporter, has received the Ssad news of the death of his son -at Stillwater, Ind. This son, it will be remembered, wandered away from home several years rago, and though the father went here and there in diligent search for his boy, he was never able to find him. In this hour of bereave ment he has the sympathy of rmany relatives and friends in Winnsboro. S-In the announcements of the Orangebnrg Collegiate Institute is the following relative to a SWinnsboro boy: "Prof. T. M. -. Lyles comes from Fairfield county. He is a young man of fine parts. SWell educated and well equipped to teach the sciences. He gradu ate'i as a Bachelor of Science of Citadel Academy, class of 1901. Prof. Lyles will be Commandant of Cadets, thus the Institute will retain the military feature for which it is so well known." S-Here is a paragaph from the Abbeville Press and Baner that will be read with much interest here: "After an extended trip of three weeks to the Buffalo Expo sition, to New York City and Washington, D. C., Mr. Perrin Quarles is home again looking none the worse for his travel and sightseeing. Mr. Quarles also had the extreme pleasure of at tending a house party at the ele gant home of Miss Flesher of Erie, Pennsylvania. Miss Fleshei is a most charming and attractive young lady who has been an hon ored guest in our city where she is most kindly remembered by many friends." 'The cetton receipts the past year at Charleston have been 2617against 266,689 the past year. The exports for the two years were 234,099 against 254, - 059. flother Uoose Operetta. On Friday night the people o: Winnsboro, ever generous, eve] public-spirited, never behind hani when these two virtues can secur( a whole evening of genuine pleas. ure, gathered in the Thespiaz Hall to enjoy the entertainmenl for the benefit of the Charleston Exposition. By the time the curtain rose the audience had worked them. selves up to a high pitch of excite. ment, and curiosity which immed iately gave place to transports ol delight as from opposite sides ol the stage Old Mother Goose's merry band emerged, keeping per fect time to the music. In and out and round about they wound in pretty, fantastic figures until drawing themselves up in front of the stage these happy little people welcomed their friends in a pretty appropriate song. Welcome, kind friends, We're here to greet you; Happy, indeed, are we to Meet you, Here in a row; We'll tell so, As we're singing for the Charles ton Exposition. Here's Mother Goose, children and all We have assembled here at her call, Happy and gay Will the time pass away As we're singing for the Charles ton Exposition. Then followed a drill, led by the minature King and Queen and participated in by the following children, eaoh perfectly costumed as the character they represented and each showing unmistakably the exquisite joy afforded by thus "dressing up": King of Hearts-Ulysse Des Portes. Queen of Hearts-Kittie Rion. Mother Goose-Lou Leavell. - The Cobweb Woman-Susie Dotv. Jack and Jill- Spencer Mc Cants and Nell Elliott. Old King Cole-Harris Mc Donald.

Daffy Down Dill-Lilla B. Ketchin. Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe-Elizabeth Beaty. Old Mother Hubbard-Miriam Center. Robinson Crusoe-E n g 1 i slh Lyles. Red Ridinghood-Nannie Neil. Bo-Peep-Eliza Lyles. For fear some of the old folks might have forgotten the friends of their childhood days, the children thought best to refresh their memories, so they sang to them about Mistress Mary, Jack and Jill, the old Woman in a Shoe, Little Miss Muffett and numerous other prominent mem bers of their little band. Then having gone through without a break or hesitation they grouped' themselves in characteristic at titudes forming a picturesque tableau over which a soft red light was thrown. Then before the audience could realize that it was but all a dream the curtain fell and the spell was broken by the appearance of these same little folks out among the people offering ice cream for sale in a most substantial and business like manner. Then the second part of the program was begun and tableaux and living pictures of every variety from the "sublime to the rediculous" were brought on in rapid succession. 1.

In order to getdthis indispensable necessity Albert Williams on Sunday en tered the stables of M. W. Doty & Co. and robbed the mules of the corn that had been put in the trough for them. For the next thirty days he will not have a similar opportunity. He is on the chaingang for that period, that being the sentence of Magis trate Cathcart. Mr. Ragsdale Resigns..

Last Wednesda he sent in his resignation to Spaker Stevenson, and of course tesame will be acepted. An election for his successor will have to be ordered. Mr. Bagsdale was one of the most able representatives the county has ever had, and throughout the ounty and State he has hosts of friends who wish for his early recovery. Ridgeway Wins. The second nines of Winnsboro and Ridgeway crossed bats Thurs :ay afternoon on the home dia mond. Unlike any of the other pames of the season it resulted in a defeat for the home team, the Ridgeway boys scoring 11 and the Winnsboro boys 8. It was the general opinion, however, that if Gaillard Ellison had gone in the box at first, things would have been different. He pitches fine ball for one of his age. The game was a clean one throughout and was much enjoyed. It is a pity that the two teams on ac ount of the lateness of the sea son can not cross bats again this year. _ _ _ _ _ _ KEEP We Have \ Summer G( goods---Figured Lawns, Orga1 er price roc to 15c; another I stripes, at ioc and 12 1-2c, for A lot of White Goods at rc pretty styles in stripes and op We are offeiing at reduce Coats, Serge Coats and Ves Vests.
