Ohly a few hours in your city and
we found the progressive, live wire
splendid grocer in the person of H.
G. Wingo. He is some hustler, has
the pep and delivers the goods. He
said however; "Poverty*is no crime
and I would rather be right than rich,
wouldn't you?" May the Lord forgive
Mr. Wingo for this statement!

Max Levitt, the big reliable hide
and fur dealer, agrees today that a
woman may walk into an open coal
hole in the sidewalk because she is
rubbering at herself. But I say anyj
old time a man falls into an open coal
hole it is because he is rubbering ati
a woman,
L
:

This is what we call one on the | £
preacher, which is an original-story, j
given us by F. J>. Nivens, king of the ■
marble works in this section. He :
knows the business like he knows his !
A, B, C's, and he knows bow to hand -1
le and please the public, and that is)
what it takes to make a success out of I
I
any business.
The minister had been rather long- !
winded this morning and Mr. Niven's
'wife, remembering that she had left j
the dinner in the gas range, wrote a j
note and slipped it to him, who was !
an usher. He, thinking it was in
ten ded for the minister, calmly walked \
i
up and laid it on the pulpit,
The preacher paused in the midst of ;
^is sermon and took the note with a
smile, which changed to a terrible
f ro wn as he read:
"Please hurry home and^shut off
99
the gas.
W. N. Wingo, proprietor of thej
Wingo meat market on Carrollton
Ave., we : ve located and if we had left :
him out of this column we would sub-1
mit to being arrested as we found him !
to be a typical good person who en-i|
joys reading our rotten daily col-|J*
umn. He thinks if the present mar
ried women in Greenwood had it to
do over again, that they would spend
their time taking boxing lessons in
stead of music lessons. He also thinks
a corn-fed girl feels at times she
looks like a tub of lard. But she has
the satisfaction of knowing that she
doesn't look like a sparerib.
A man was fined $1.10 for beating
his mother-in-law recently. iVan ac-j|t
ross Morgan Kimbrough ,of the Kim-1
brough Auto Co., where they sell the
highest price tire because it's the
best, and told him about the small
fine, and asked what he thought the
ten cents was for. With a long grin
on his face he said:
eral tax on amusements.
'That's the Fed

Mr. Gean Hackett, of the McGee,
Dean & Jones Cotton Company who
has a heart as big as the court house
tin excellent fellow and as good look
ing as the writer, wants to know what
has become of the old fashioned
Greenwood girl who used to plug the
.'keyhole of the door of her room with
chewing gum ? .
Guess who I found at the River
Front garage, where you get the very
best service in Greenwood. No one
but W. P. Manscoe and we had a long
chat. He tells me the reason railroad
men call locomotives "she" in Green
wood ,is because a locomotive has an
apron, a tongue, a waist, a jacket, a
bonnet, a petticoat, hose, shoes and
pins.
Monroe McClurg, Jr., who sells Mil
ler tires, we say is there, tells me:
Women wear pretty and smart clo
thes to please the men.
McClurg is right, but they've not
caught him yet. He has never slip
ped up-to-date but now and then
stubs his toe and his feet at times din

"SALOME va SHENANDOAH"
A small road company decides to
give its audience a treat by present
ing two shows in one night—that is,
if they can survive the first. The'first
play 4s a melodrama of the Civil War,
Ben Turpin and Phillis being Southern
spies. Disguised as an officer of the
Army of the Potomac, Ben orders
Charlie Conklin, a Northern officer,
to charge upon the Rebels. The whole
Northern army is killed except Conk
lin, who accuses Ben of being a spy
and orders his execution. But in the
nick of time, as usual, Phillis rushes
in with the pardon and Ben is saved.
End first show.
The second act, "Salome," has Char
les Murray as the king, Conklin as a
vassal, and Philiis Haver, shimmier
extraordinary. Ben Turpin, as John
the Baptist, enters, and after haveing
judgement passed upon him, is taken
out to be executed. Disguised as a
slave, Ben comes back carring the
supposed head of John and sticks a
found to watch the dancing. While do
ing a dance Phillis stabs the king,
who dies a hor-r-ible death. She then
stabs herself, after placing some cush
ions conveniently near by to fall upon,
and when a property man evertums
a vat of water, flooding the stage,
the show ends. This picture will be
shown at the Greenwood Theatre Sat
urday.
