Greenville and Spartanburg, S. U., to
visit some cotton mills. Tne last trace
of hitn was at the Mansion Honse,
Greenville, where he registered the
next afternoon, Tuesday, May 23. d
Diligent search has been made in that
neighborhood, resulting iu no clue as
to what has become of him. Believing
that he has become mentally unsound
as a result of overwork, and is wandering
about the country and may fall
into the hands of the police authorities
or into some charitable institution,
this method of finding him is proposed.
He was an educated gentleman in
good circumstances, devoted to his
home and with no possible reason for r
absenting himself voluntarily. h
The following description" of him is t!
accurate: Dressed in a bine serge fa
coat, with name of ?. II. & W. F. I
Doisey on collar and a blue striped S
negiigee shirt, striped trousers of h
black and white, black shoes aud a t
straw*bat with name of E. H. & VV. 1)

carried an open-faced gold watch, S
LIgin movement, and in case his wife?s i'
picture, the watch chain was small C
and round like cable and of silver and o
gold threads, and upon cbain some o
rings. He wore a blood stone seal l
rinor -roif'h i>nt in it trt t.hp. TOhifP. E
He wa3 6 ft til, well proportioned, I
weighing 175 pounds and was 41 years I
old. He was cleau shaven, except a
light moustache of brown color, bad brown
eyes and parted bis hair accurately
in the middle. He had a
large scar at corner of left eye and a
6inail rounded raised one between chin
and lower lip, and a deep cleft in chin.
His teeth were pertect, regular and r
well cared for. Upon left forearm p
was a tatooed blue star. v
His occupation had been bookkeeper t
and later, for 9 years, cashier in a
bank; he also had an interest in a
3mall roller cover plant. He was
married and had two girls 4 and 7
years of age. His wife'5 name . was
Mamie, children Ccatsie and Harriette.
If any person of such description
should come under your observation
