Among our advertisers will be found Mr.
WV. G. King, who has established a busi
ness in the "McLeod block," and who, by
attending strictly to that business, worked
up a nice trade. Mr. King is satisfied
with small profits, and thereby his sales
'are constantly increasing. He keeps a
general merchandise store, where the buy
er can be supplied with anything and
everything at competing prices. King is
a bard worker, and deserves doing a good
business, because what he tells a buyer can
be relied upon, and any goods bought at
his store, not turning out as represented
will be made good without at y argument.
We take pleasure in commending W. G.
King's store to the readers of THE TIMEs,
and we can promise them, that they will
receive honest and polite treatmnent. Mr.
James G3. H. Setzer who has sold goods to
thousands of people in Clarendon, is the

be glad to have a call from his host of

The Summer Normal school, now in ses

Professors L. W. Dick and S. M. RiceJr.,
of the Aiken Graded school in charge.
These gentlemen are tcacher with fine rep
utations and we have every reason to be
lieve that their work here will greatly
benefit our teachers. The attendance is
fairly good, there being about 30 teachers
enrolled, and they are given a regular
course of study and instruction, in ar
ithmetic, geography. english etc. In a
conversation with Professor Dick we were
highly gratified to hear him speak so
well of the teachers of Clarendon. He
says they arc very bright arid intelligent
and that they are attentive students, all
of which is pleasant to know of those
who have the moulding of the coming
generation's ideas. It is to be hoped that
before the school breaks up, the teachere
will give a public entertainment, in ordet
that cur people may have the pleasure of
coming in social contact with them. Wi
know that at present they have no time
for social functions, as their time is all
taken up with their books, and from the
serious countenances we see we imagine
that they are taking advantage of this grea
opportunity for improvement, provided by
the State. Tbe last evening of the schoo

Parties are making inquiries relat

bale plant at this point. We are not
sufficiently informed on the subject
to know whether our farmers desire
to market their cotton by the new

about one cent per pound more for
his cotton; at any rate it is now too
late for this season any way.

At yesterday morning's session of
the Summer school, one of the teach
ers rose, during the discussion of en
glish, and asked the following ques
tion. '"Professor which is correct"
"them molasses or those molasses?"
The class laughed of course, and the
teacher in rather explanatory eumbar-.
asssment turned to the class and
said "I have heard both terms used
and I want to know which is correct."
"-Them molasses" might go all right
enough in that teachers section but
if he goes to mixing it up with "those
molasses" of the teachers of other
sections he will tind himself stuck in
these molassesses.
What's thc MIatter With Hler!
Foreston's annual August sensation came
offlon scdule time last Thursday night.
It will be remembered, that onr courts have
had the matter of investigating the charge
of heinous crimes upon the person of a
Mrs. George Richb'ourg, who lves a short
distance from the peaceable town of For
eston; the result of these investigations
were, that a negro was convicted and sent
to the penitentiary for a ternm of years,
not upon the evidence adduced~but because
the fellow was a triffling chap, and on
general principles he went up. In that
trial the testimiony showed that whoever
molested .\rs. Richbourg, if' she was mo
ested, did not succeed in their horrible
purpose, and the most that could be made
of the case, was an attempt to committh
crime. This is the case which created con
siderable excitment, and the one in which
lynching was threatened, and would have
been carried out, had it not been for the
doubt which existed among the good peo
ple of the community where the crime was
alleged to have been cotmmitted.
One year later, the samne woman, was
again in the court, as the victim of ain al
leged outrage, but this time, the evidence
showed the crime had been commuitted, and'
although circumustantial, it was woven
around one Ed. Meyers, w'ho recently died
in the State prison; he was convicte3,
with a recommuendation ti micyi, and the
judge sent him to the penitentiary for life.
Notwithstanding the conviction was Lad,
there must have been a doubt, even in the
jury room, or no negro proven to have
committed such a dastardly crime upon a
white woman, would have gotten oirt with
a recommendation to mercv.
Now the month of August has come again
and with it, comes this same Mrs. Rtich
bourg with her troubles; she creates a sen
sation among the neighbors, with her an
nual report of another attempt upon her
by a negro. This time her supposed as
sailant, does not get any nearer than four
steps o1 her and by having a pistol handy
she succeeds in defending herself. The
story as given us is as follows: Os last
Thursday night Mrs.George Richbourg was
stan dingt in her door, and she saw a negro1
approaching, she went back into the hotnse,
got a pistol, carne out, and as the negro
came towards her she attempted to nre, but;
the pistol snapped. Again she fired on
him when he was about tour steps away;
this time she got her gun off, and the fel
low wheeled, hollered and fell; on seeing
her would-be assaillant where she could
haudle him, she went to the wood-pile to
get an ax to knock him in the head, but
|when she returned, the fellow had crawed
of' through some pea-vines, leaving a trail
trail he was traced over a fnce into a pas
ture, where he escaped. The alarm was
given and paltit-s went over the ground,
but the do's had lieked ull) the blood on

A Mother Tells How She Saved Her
Little Daughter's Life.
I am the mother of eight children and
have had a greLt deal of experience wtth
medicines. Ltst summer my little daugh
ter had the dysentery in its worst form.
We thought she would die. I tried every
thing I could think of, but nothing seemed
to do her any good. I saw by an adver
tiseient in onr paper that Chamberlain's
olie, Cholera and Diarrhoex, Remedy was
ighly recommended and sent and got a
bottle at once. It proved to be one of the
very best medicines we ever had in the
house. It saved my little daughter's life.
I am anxious for every mother to know
what an excellent medicine it is. Had I
known it at first it would have saved me a
great deal of anxiety and my little daugh
ter much suffering. Yours truly, Mrs. Geo.

With such a condition of affairs, the business man is
plit to his trumps to study out the most effectual way of
meeting the people and sharing their burdens, to remedy
the bad effects caused by any turn in affairs which op
erate adversely to the people. It is unnecessary to in
troduce myself to the readers of The Times, they know
me, and tiey know full well that my many years of ex
perience, both as a farmer and a merchant, give me a de
cided advantage over many others. I have used my ex
perience that it may count for the best interests of my
business. In doing this I had to study the needs and
and warts of my patrons, studying their condition as
well as their welfare, because upon their welfare de
pends my success. Every business man, to keep up
with the progressive spirit now pervading this country
must study the markets just as a lawyer or doctor must
study his books. This must be done or he cannot buy
his goods to meet competition.
I have made deals by which I can sell goods at prices
