We have told you this before, and we mean every word
of it. If we weren't doing this very thing, instead of a large
and prosperous Clothing Store you would find here simply an
empty place.
The trade wouldn't come to us and pay Cash if they could
get the same Goods at the same prices on a credit.
People don't come here to trade because they like us.
They have found out that it pays them to trade here.
And it'll pay you, too.
More customers are coming every month, and our busi
ness is by far the largest we have ever known.
Our Fall Clothing is here, ready for your inspection.
Here are some of the values we offer :
ls the low price we place on a big line of Men's and Young
Men's Suits. Blue and Black Cheviots, also Cassimers in
Checks and Plaids. Every one of them excellent value, and
we doubt if a Credit Store can match them for a dollar more.
Is the small price we place on an excellent line of Men's
Suits in Blue and Black Worsteds, Blue and Black All Wool
Cheviots. Also, Cassimers in Stripes, Checks and Plaids.
These Suits are not usually sold at $7.50, but here you save
at least a dollar to a dollar and a half on them.
At $10.00, $12.50, $15.00, $16.50, $18.00 and $20.00 you
will find an assortment that would do credit to a much larger
city. These Suits have to be seen to be appreciated. But
you can take our word for it that there's a saving for you at
-each price. -

Oar Hurricane Creek Correspondent
Dilates on Varions Subjects.
Noticing the editor's call to his scat
tered correspondents-whotn no doubt
ho knew were now wrestling with the
mighty torces of mother earth and her (
Eiroduce-a Piedmont contributor ,
once ye "Portman scribe"] rises to |
the rally of Hurricane Creek section
and proclaims we are uot all dead-we
Editors are peculiar geniuses, though
this is not au essay on tho mau with
the quill. Unco we may enter the hair- -
braiucd sanctum and fear lest our irre
veraut toes may, within tho hallowed
grouud, touch upon some effusion
which is ono of a thousand occupying
all space from floor, to ceiling. Wo
; fear to speak lest tile vibration of our
voice sends rickets into the cerebellum
of the body corporate of literature, or
I that ouo word more on or off the sub
ject may bo tho last straw. We retire
from the place silently ns though from
suffocating and cramming of brains the
miniature Pauthcou nerve become a
mausoleum, our freezing breaths aspir
ating the while: How fearfully and
wonderfully made thou art, oh, man !
Again, we enter, when from the de
spoiled appearance of the sanctum,
suggestions materialize bei'ore us a
hobgoblin from Plutonian shores who
had surfeited his ghoulish maw on
ceremented cellular tissue. The editor
occupied in calling un the shades of
his invisible contributors, and the
compositor within his outer san ct um
transferring to type the proclamation
to a mystic circle : "Where are our
correspondeuts? Friends, awake!"
Correspondents are glad to be re
membered, oven collectively. Som* - i
thing within them swells up At the
challenge of extinction and exclairus :
"hero am I!"
Perhaps the corps of quill wielders
were effacing from the earth the writ
ten history of negligence or time's de
facement. Ye dilatory correspondent
was in Pelzer t.bsorbing the stock
show. No use in discussing what outer
boundaries of Pelzer have done nnd
are still doing. Pelzer iteelf is the cen
ter of accomplishment. One point con
spicuous upou the arena of this city's
activity is where she throws the gaunt
let. This challenge, admirable from
north to south in this State, is the
chief innovation known as "kindness
to old soldiers."
Pelzer sets an example to larger and
older cities in her patriotic kindness;
and when the dusty Confederate vet
erans on the last tired camping ground
are thanking the good angels of past
recollections for the cup of cold w uer,
they won't forget Pelzer and her
creamy hot coffee.
There is also a suggestion that when
Williamston, the academic neighbor, is
in the near future erecting a monu
ment to Co. D, Gist Rifles, Pelzer will
say : "I am in the contribution. I
love the old soldier. Inscribe my
name on tho tablet of donation. Here
is remembrance to the old soldier.1'
The wives with the sedate veterans
enjoyed all privileges gratis; and that
ls one way in which Pelzer substanti
ates her claim to popularity and is
likely to set the march for prosperity
to Piedmont and Anderson and Belton.
Women have long memories for good
and bad, and have a peculiar way of
tickling their husbands' ears with re
Tho stock show was a thing of beau -
ty. Let anybody ask anybody who
was there. Everything from bird to
beaBt that had excellence of its own
was on parade or exhibition. We were
interested in the spirited horses and
riders, and especially was ye scribe
transported to the third heaven in the
vagaries of the festive mule: whose
heels thereof might be shod with bur
nished gold as translucently they
shimmered in the upper air where the
warm sun laughed in their mirrors at
its own reflection. Of the happy own
ers of the agile animals the writer
learned no name; but each proud pro
prietor of its kind will know bis own
quadruped by the above description.
We would like to say a word of
Piedmont-at least of our little town in
connection with Pelzer. It cannot en
viously be said that Piedmont was not
in it. Piedmont was, and all the glory
of her whirling mills and clean life and
exclusive population was with her as
she paid her addresses to Pelzer.
Piedmont's surrounding country is
jubilant in the success of crops better
than the country has seen for years.
We believe the country people have
little time for other labor than bring
ing within shelter the varions connu?
daties exchangeable for yellow gold. I
One neighbor, however. Mr. Richard
Jones, bas found time for the labor of
love and called to the interest of his
heart and home an estimable lady
whom he denominates wife. This is
simply to announce Mr. Jones' timely
wisdom, and forewarn all the young
ladies accustomed to await the appear
ance of Mr. Jones' buggy at Shiloh
Church. The gentleman has been
captured, relieving henceforth the ob
ligation of kind-hearted yonng persons
who sought to check the gentleman's
seemingly willful career of widowered
bachelorhood. So mote it be! With this
happy effect to a Piedmont country
lotter we leave the field now to further
contributors who are prized by reader
and editor as weekly correspondents to
The Intelligencer. H. R. L.
Piedmont, Sept. 20.
?. Most Shocking Tragedy in a Church.
One of the most shocking pnuics that
has been reported in this country oc
curred in Shiloh Baptist Church, nt
Birmingham, Ala., where the negro
Baptist convention ia iu session, last
Friday. The big church was packed.
Booker Washington had just finished
speaking. A negro lawyer from Balti
more got into a row with a choir leader
and the people near them called
"fight," which the audience mistook
for "fire." A minister got on the ros
trum and called "quiet," waving his
arms, which the crowd took for a fur
ther warning and they wont wild.
The church is about 15 feet from the
ground, the approaches being high
rick guards, which proved a veritable
death trap. The people were pushed
over, mashed up against the brick
walls, ground in the earth and mashed
to a pulp in many cases, while the
mass behind struggled and fought for
exit. Tho trouble wns increased by
people on the outside trying to break in
through the jam.
The police had to remove the mass
from the doors. It was so jammed
that it could not loosen itself any more
th?? it had been composed of so many
logs. One hundred and ten people
were killed and many injured.
