A Hornheide Near Hebron.
The fair name anti enviable
reputation of Marlboro county
has once more been blackened
by one man taking the life of
another, in one of the quietest
and most prosperous sections
of the county. On Christinas
eve night, near Clio, on the plan
ration of Mr. p. J. Smith, while
tile colored people were having
a "birthday party"at the home
of George "Vining, an altercation
took place between Georgo and
Alex Parker, both colored,
which resulted in the instant
killing of Alex by George.
It seems that George is a man
of many wives and Alex was
living with George's daughter.
The row began afc the house
when Georgo struck Alex with
a heavy loaded hickory stick
on the head. Alex went into
thc yard, George picked up his
gun, a single barrel breech loa
der, went to the door and shot
Alex, who was in the yard, the
load entering hi breast, neal
the heart, killin, im instantly.

Sticking to th? Line Brought Baok
Hla Former Patronage,
One of tho famous utterances of
General Grant was, "I will fight it out
on this lino if it takes all Bummer."
Grant fought lt out, though it took a
long time, and won. Ho had mapped

In a Now ISnglnud town lives n mer
chant who somo mouths ago found his
patronage rapidly falling off becauso
so many of his customers wero buying
goods by mall order. The Inviting cat

in tho mall order periodicals hud tompt

that was startling. This particular
merchant did not sit down and fold

Instead, this merchant put on his
thinking oap and resolved to combat
the enemy. In tho first place, ho made
note of tho sort of ammunition the en
emy was using. Tho enoniy always
trios to find tho ammunition that will
do the most oxocution. The other side
usually finds lt ndvlsablo to imo the
same kind of ammunition and shoot a
littlo harder and straighter. This mer
chant was aware of these facts, and he
turned them to account.
Accordingly ho began to uso tho
samo sort of ammunition, and lots of lt.
Tho ammunition was advertising. Ju
tho uso of tids ammunition tho local
merchant really had tho advantago of
the city mall order enemy, for tho lat
ter was doing his shooting nt long
rango necessarily, while tho homo mer
chant did not have so far to about. Ile
could use tho local paper for his gun,
take bottor aim and bo surer of hitting
So this live merchant thought out
n plan of campaign and hewed to
the lino. When ho saw a mail ordor
bargain advertised in tho catalogues
and tho littlo weekly and monthly jour
nals, the cheap affairs that aro pub
lished only to carry mail order ads., he
took a shot at lt with an advertisement
in the homo paper. Ho kopt well In
formed of tho euomy's operations by
reading tho catalogues. Hero and
there ho plckod out tho weak points tn
the enemy's lino-bargain offers which
he could ruoet himself with a bargain
Just as good or botter-nud gradually
he got thc local peoplo so deeply inter

to take sides.
Naturally thoy took sides wtth tho
