well treated by a merchant you go again, and
the results are that if his goods arc satisfactory
you may become a permanent customer. The
treatment you receive at Folsom's jewelry store
is calculated to make and give you such values

you back again. Keep this in mind, thm, and

A new phase was developed this
morning in the case of Rev. F. G
Blcgley and the Alexander jubilee
children, which were taken from him
and his wife by Chief Pender yester
dav on telegraphic advices from Jen
kins Orphanage at Charleston, S C-, j
which Binglcy claimed to represent.
Heroid A. Weld secured from Mas- i
ter in Cnancery Parmenter a writ of I
habeas corpus, which was served on
Chief of Police Pender, preventing the
sending of the children to Jenkins Or
phanage, but ordering him to
produce them in the circuit
court Monday morning at 9 o'clock.
Mr. Weld, in explanation of his
course, btated to an Am. us tep
resentative that no was noting aa
a humanitarian and not as the attor
ney for Bingley, who had brought
the matter to his attention. Mr.
M'eld said he had called on Mrs. W.
B. Ferguson and had enlisted her
endorsement on behalf of the W. C.
T. L" of his plan before putting it
into effect, the idea being to investi
gate the moral standing of the Jen
kins Orphanage before permitting
the children to bo returned to it.
This move alters the responsibil
ity for tho children's keeping and
insures their retention in Rook Isl
and until court opens Monday morn
ing. Last evening Chief of Police P. nuer
received through the Postal Tele
graph company a telegraphic order
tor $27 .60 with wbicb to pay the fares
of the children back to the Jenkins
Orphanage, the money coming from
that institution. But before acting
tnis morning, Chief Pander rent
Sergeant Archer to The Abol j e ffice
to confer as to the best means of act
ing in accordance with his tele
graphic instructions from the or
phanage, as published in last nights
Akul's. The chief's idea naturally
was that as he had taken the chil
dren at the instauoe ot the Jenkins
Orphanage he should roturn them to
it as soon as practicable, and in ac
cordance with its orders. It was ex
plained to Searirent Archer at
Toe Argus ollice that wnile there
was but one duty plain for the chie!
of police to perform at the then
status of the Eituation, it would be
etter to arrange, if possible, for an
officer to accompany the children on
such a long journev, and plans were
disouseed whereby Sergeant Archer
might make the trip. AH this, how
ever, waB to depend upon .he reply to
telegraphic queries which The Akol s
had made in Charleston prior to Ser
geant Aroher's call, as to the worth
and responsibility ol Jenkins Or
phanage.. The action of Mr. Weld
took tho matter out of tho hatis
of the police, end other inves
tigations, which Tnic Annus was on
the point of pushing by wire, were
Deserving and Well Oouduoted.
In response to the Ancue' dispatch
for information, came a telegram
iiom Mayor J. Adlor Smith, of
Charleston, this afternoon. ftatinp-
that tho Jenkins Orphanage was well
conducted end worthy.
Following this came this tele 'ram
