The automobilists should hi1 as

speed and always have their *
machine under full control, from
the fact that there might he

too late to presume! that the little

Mr. Lawson was in his 71st.
year, and had been in decling
health for several months, but
was reported better and in good
spirits by friends and neighbors
who went to see him the day before.
It seems, from what
could be learned that his wife
had gotten up and was starting
a fire in the stove and he slip

around the corner of house
and shot himself. A neighbor
boy who was. spending the
night heard the shot and went,
out to sco what it meant. He
found Mr. Lawson lying on bis
back, the gun across his breast
and a gaping wound in his
head just behind the right ear.
A piece of the skull was found |
at his feet and some of the pa- j
per used in the gun as wadding j
was right at his bead. No mo- j
tive for the deed could be as-j
signed. He leaves a wife and :i!
married daughter, tor many
years Mr. Lawson was a member
of the Oolenoy Baptist,
church. D. F. Sutherland,
magistrate of Dacusville town !
ship held the inquest, but up to
this writing he had not turned,
the papers over to the clerk of
court and we do not know
what evidence was adduced, or
what the verdict of the jury was.
From the best information at-;
tainable we are led to believe
that no evidence would be produced
that would throw any
light on the mystery.

Hear Friends of theS.-J.:
11' you remember, I told you
t wo vears ago that Liberty had i
the capital and talent necessary
to net out a paper and that all j
she needed was a title, so it!
seems that some one has sup-'
plied the title and the result is
a Mire little paper in circulation,
called the " I /iherty News." An
easy name to think wasn't it?
Hut, kind friends of thcS.-J.,
don't think for a moment that!
I have forsaken you. for I havei
not. I am like ;i parent who lavishes
so much affection on the
first, offspring that it seems there
would be none to bestow on another;
but bye and bye along
cenies No. '2. when parent-love
stretches out ami takes in the latest
addition, and it don't, matter
how in an v more are added,
parent-love takes them all in.
Ho, while I like the new paper, I
still have a warm place in my
heart for the Sentinel-Journal.
1 appreciate our Journal editor
because he has, from time to
time, offered the columns of bis
paper to each town and community
to exploit its own part icular
part of the county, and h? is not
to blame if his kind offer wasn't
accepted. He has also from
time to time advocated patron
izing home merchants, home industries,
etc. I am with him
in that, too. I believe every
person, so far :is he can possibly
do so, should trade with their
own home merchants instead of
running oil' to other towns to
trade. I see people pass mv
home each season going to
Pickens to buy hats and ot her
things, but I never see anyone
coming from Pickens to trade
at Liberty. Not because there
are cheaper or prettier hats and
dry goods at Pickens than here

ere but

Run Bossy
. wines the prodigal
;ui(l told him that he

that he dropped a nickel into a

I guess I'd better stop praising
Liberty or the whole county
will want to move down here.
1 would like to know whats K

Old Riddle especially.
