year In advance.
Wednesday, May 4,1904.
Deatb Invadesonr Ranks.
During the last week Abbeville has lost two
of her best citizens, and the Jcareer of two
merchants has been closed.
William Shllllto Penney was called hence
TOhllA T70* at thfi oortr throchnM nt llfo. Hflnri
some in person, prepossessing In manner, and
having an active mind and willing bands, he
entered upon the duties and responsibilities
of life, nothing doubtfng that good fortune
would smile upon him all the way along a
useful and happy life.
William Shlllito Penney was bound to earth
by all the beauty, all the hope and all the inviting
prospects that could allure the young
to a glorious future. Blessed In the love of an
affectionate young wife, and having before
bim the most plealng prospects, the world
to bim was beautiful and lovely indeed, but
on May 2, 1904, he died, surrounded by loving
hearts.
He had less than a year ago, married Miss
Alma Spearman of Anderson, and it seemed
that his cup of happiness was filled to the
brim. But that was not all. Tbe business
world opened up bright for him. Ahd he
was, only a lew months ago, put at tbe bead
of tbe Penney Clothing Company, and all
i seemed well with bim in both his married
life and bis business venture.
But this beautiful picture is broken. His
store is closed. Jtiis oriue is a wiuow, ana tue
manly form which only a few days gave
splendid promise of the pleasures, the honors
and the realities of life, is no more.
While we are all sorry on his own account
for the premature taking off, yet a great multitude
of friends are not forgetful of the aged
parents whose unspeakable grief for the loss
of their Benjamin, must be all that they can
bear.
He wbb the younger son of Dr. W. T. Penney
of this city. He was a brother :of Mr.
* George Penney, and one sister is .Mrs. J. L.
Perrln, the other Mrs. Fred Hill.

The funeral services were held in the Methodist
Church and William Penney now sleeps
with his father at Long Cane.

the town of Abbeville, October 31, 1887, and
died at bis borne In this city April 27, 1904.
Suffering for months be died after long
years of.honorable and ceaseless toll and anx
ety. He fell aBleep as one who was weary,
and who was ready for that rest which awaits
the true and the faithful.
fev In early manhood he was graduated from
the South Carolina College, and for several
years alter graduation he taught school In
Abbeville. At the breaking out of tbe war be
_ volunteered with the "Minute Men," under
command of Capt. James M. Perrln. After
serving for several months on Sullivan's
Islftnd, the oompany was disbanded. On bis
return from Sullivan's Island Mr. Douglass
assisted Capt. Leroy J.Johnson In raising a
cavalry company, which became part Of
Black's regiment. Mr. Douglass remained in
the service until the surrender at Appomat?
Yv oue on ruriougti in 1863 be married Miss
Ellzabetli WllBon, sister of Mr. Harvey Wilson.
The surviving sonB are: George C. Douglass,
now In the Philippine Islands, Wade H.
Douglass, Harvey A. Douglass.
The surviving daughters are: Mrs. Susie
Evans, wife of John T. Evans of this county ;
. .Mrs. Estella Hutto, wife of J. F. Hutto, of
Livingston, S. C., and >llss Mary L. Douglass,
who Is now living In Livingston, with her sis* i
ter, Mrs. Hutto.
The second marriage of Mr. Douglass was
with Miss Margaret E. Lyon, daughter of
Captain John Lyon who lived on theSavan.
nah side of the county. She survives.
In 1872 Mr. Douglass formed a partnership
with Jacob Miller, and ever since then he has
been In the general mercantile business.
Mr. Douglass was noted for kindness of
heart, as well as for evenness of temper.
While he never aspired to be the leader of
men, yet he waB never the follower of anybody.
He had a logical mind and was a logical
thinker. He always In his own way,
reaohed the conclusions which he maintained
as.^lght. In bis quietness and in his unobtruslveness,
be wielded an Influence upon the
mlndB of those who knew him. His stand
ards of thought and action were the highest.
Noman was ever more truthful or more honest
than Archie Douglass. And if any man
ever had a better heart within his breast we
have not been Informed of the fact.
The funeral service was conducted by his
pastor, the Rev. P. B. Wells, at the home of
tbe deceased. The body now rests in Upper
Long Cane.

The above nlav was nut, on Tnpsdav
and Wednesday nights at the Opera
House, and received the highest praise
and commendation from the public at
large, and especially by those who had
an eye for the stage and its beauties.
Tuesday night, of course, drew the
largest audience, and every one spoke
in very flattering terms of our local
actors and actresses.
The scene of the rescue of the little
waif by Tom, the fisherman, was beyond
the expectation of the most critical,
and tbeplay was in every way a
brlliiant success, the actors and scenery
were both true to life and recieved repeated
applause.

Letter to Gilliam Brut*.
Abbeville, S. C.
Dear sire: "Three-quarter paint" Is a good]
phrase for the best outside of Devoe.
la tha otunriorH mQflr it- 1(10 Tho
next-best?there are several not far apart?
are three-quarter paints; you may mark them
75 to Devoe's 100.
The bulk of tbe paints in market are 40 or 50
or 60; a few are better than 60 ; a lew are worse
tban 40.
How do they act? They cover from one to
'three quarters as much as Devoe; and tbey
ast from one to three-quarters as long as Devoe.
What are they worth ? The same rule don't
hold; it costs more to put-on some paints
than they are worth; they are not worth
anything; tbe "put on" oosts two or three
times as much as the paint.
Yours truly,

Sheriff Lyon is wide awakowhen there are
criminals about. And like William Trimble
Toe, he catches things and puts them in
penR.
Not so Ion? ag-> lie captured Frank Single
ton, alias l-'rank Klne. who was reported
drowned at Martlua Mill some nine years
ago. It Is certain that he disappeared at
completely as If the waters or the earth bad
swallowed him.
Chief of Police McMillan arrested him in
that town when Sheriff Lyon went down
and brought the game home. The missing
man has escaped his old position on the
chain gang.
John Lindsay colored, was loafing about
Duo West, and among other jobs served
seven years as cook or Janitor In one of the
buildings. Sheriff Lyon receives news by
telegraphy in some case*, but In some cases
he gets messageR over wires iu the- came old
way. He knew about Lindsay's presence at
Due West and his ears were open, and he
nut that l.imlfcHv toiik nrnhnhlv u'unttwl
in Lexington. In reply to request for Information
bv Sheriff Lyon to Sheriff of L?xingtou
notified him that Lindsay was want1
ed. In response to that information Sheriff
Lyon went to Due West yesterday, and the
population of that town bas been reduced
by one. Lindsay was charged with
complicity in a murder committed fourteen
years aao. He came home with our Slier

three o'clock.
The Sheriff of Lexington will come up today,
and accompany the eentleinan back to
Lexington, where he will fare his accusers.
We know he didn't kill any body because he
himself says he dind't, and nobody has a
better right to k now.
