BIG BUSINESS CHANGB.
0. M. Jamieson Sells to Summer Bros., Who Will Henceforth Conduct the Lafge Clothing Business. A-iafg "business transaction was con cluded in this city on Friday, when the clothing'establishment for many years so successfully conducted by Mr. 0. M. Jamieson, passed into the hands of the Messrs. Summer Brothers. The business will be continued by Summer Brothers at the same stand, and will be managed by Mr. J. H. Sum mer. Mr. R. C. Perry, the popular chief clerk, and all his associates, will be re tained. The Messrs. Summer Brothers have had a remarkable career since they first entered business in Newberry 'some 12 or 14 years ago. At that time they started as small merchants on a very small scale. Today they are conducting one of the largest general grocery busi nesses in the city and one that will com pare favorably with any in the State. In connection with the grocery business is conducted a dry goods and clothing house. In adddition to this they are nte-ested in many of the city's largest ei; prises, and M r. Geo. W. Summer is the very successful president of the Mollohon cotton mill, whose capital stock it has just been decided to in crease to $500,000. A good record, and one made by hard work and strict atten tion to business, and the use of business methods. The purchase of the business hitherto conducted by Mr. Jamieson gives these gentlemen control of one of the largest clothing businesses in the State. There is no doubt its management will be at tended by the same success that has marked their previous efforts. To Report on State's Finances. Senator Geo. S. Mower, of Newberry, was appointed one of the members from the Senate of a committee consisting of two Senators and three Representa tives, who shall sit during the recess for the purpose of considering some plan to put the financial affairs of the State on a cash basis, to consider what additional sorces of revenue may be de sired and to suggest changes in assess ments and the manner of collecting taxes. The committee was appointed by the Speaker of the House and the President of the Senate last Friday under a concurrent resolution offered by the Senate Finance Committee. The gentlemen will receive the regular per diem and mileage for not more than fifteen days, and will report to the Governor by January 1, 1904. The other members of the committee, are Senator Manning, Representatives Moses, Jno. P. Thomas, Jr., and W. 0. Tatum. Card of Thanks. I take this occasion to express my sincere appreciation of the generous manner in which the people of New berry County have bestowed their patronage upon me in my business career begun here about eighteen years ago. During all these years their patronage has been liberal and con stant, and my wish for each one and all of them is that they may be blessed with abundant prosperity in the years to come. Respectfully, - Newberry, S. C., 0. M. Jameson. Febauary, 23, 1903. The Let Loafers Beware. Tre negroes will begin this morning a sentence of thirty days upon the county chain gang, put there by Mayor Earhardt under the recent city ordi nance against vagrancy.

To those who refuse to find work, work will be given. Dwelling at White Rock Burned. The dwelling house of Mr. S. D. Shealy, at White Rock, was totally destroyed by fiire on Sunday morning.

The publisher of the Daily Index at Greenwood announces the discontin uance of the paper. The town is not large enouge to support a daily so as to make it profitable to the publisher. Greenwood is a live prosperous town, but a daily in a town that size can at best attempt only to be a local paper. The Hampton Monument. The work of raising ten thousand dol lars in voluntary contributions, to be used with twenty thousand dollars ap) p)ropriated by the recent General As sembly for the purpose of erecting an equestrian statue to the memory of General Wade Hampton will be under taken at once. The central committee is located in Columbia and desires that all contributions shall be sent to Gene ral Wilie Jones, of the Carolina Na tional bank, in that city. There should be not the least amount of diffculty in raising the money. The people are not asked to contribute vol untarily because the State is too poor to erect a suitable monument, but be cause it is believed that they desire personally to aid in the work. No time should be lost, however, and there should be no need of argument. It is desired to begin the work of erecting the monument at once. That fact should be suffcient for the people of South Carolina. Advertised Letters Remaining in postoffce for week endl ing Feb. 21, 1903: C -Griffn Christopher, Maloue Cot ton. D-A. J. Dould. F--F.

Lard is not only expensive but in jurious to the health~ when usedI in liberal quantities. To make the so called cheap p)atent flours white enough, the life is all ground out of the flour; then it is necessary to load it up with lard in order to make it work. This accounts largely for your heavy his cuits andl rolls and your bad digestion. It takes less than one-half the lard to work "Clifton" that it does the cheap patents, so you not only save more than the dlifference in price but get a more healthful and nutritious food pro duct.

Hair, accom.-anied by a team consisting of Messrs. E. S. Werts, J. M. Guinn, W. B. Thompson, John Darby, I. O. Burton, Sheriff M. M. Buford and Dr. Van Smith went yes terday to Whitmire, where last night they instituted a Tribe of Red Men with twenty-five charter members. The Tribe at Whitmire makes the sixth Tribe organized during the period Mr. Hair has been at the head of the Order in South Carolina. He is ex pecting soon to institute two more Tribes, one at Columbia and one at Rock Hill; and efforts are being made to organize another at Greenwood Mr. Hair believes in the Order and , ,rks for its success. His term as Great Sachem will expire on the 14th day of April, at which time he will become Great Prophet. In conversation yes terday he memtioned the fact that the Red Men are now stronger numerically and financially than at any previous time in their history, and the growth continues rapid. Bergell Tribe in this city is in a very flourishing con dition and welcomes the organization of a second Tribe in Newberry County. Dr. Kinard Highly Honored. The following from The State of yes terday will be read with pleasure by Dr. Kinard's many friends in Newberry: Rev. Dr. M. M. Kinard preached his last sermon to the Ebenezer Lutheran congregation yesterday morning, and his closing words were a beautiful cli max to a long and faithful pastorate. He has labored in Columbia for 16 years and has gained the love and respect of hundreds of Columbians through his good work and genial disposition. Dr. Kinard is a man of prepossessing appearance and he will make friends wherever he goes. He is one of the foremost ministers in the Lutheran church, having been identified with some of the most important positions that denomination affords. His term as president of the 'outh Carolina synod was a most successful one, andl he dis played great tact as a leader in the Christian affairs of that distinguished body. Dr. Kinard was devoted to his own congregation, and the beautiful edifice is the result of his labors. He worked hard and faithfully, having the inter ests of Christianity at heart, and it must be a great source of satisfaction to him the beautiful "Well (lone thou good and faithful servant." Dr. Kinard will leave Columbia next Thursday morning. His removai is a distinct loss to the city of Columbia, and it can be truly said, Columbia's loss is Knoxville's gain. Yesterday morning immediately after the services were concluded Ebenezer congregation presented Dr. Kinard with testimonials of their love, esteem and appreciation. The congregation remain ed seated and Messrs. W. F. Stieglitz, F. W. Seegers and M. M. Earhardt ad vanced to the chancel to present their beloved pastor a handsome loving cup and a wvell filled purse. Mr. Stieglitz presented the testimonials in a few well chosen words, which wvere responded to briefly but touchingly -by Dr. Kinard. The loving cup is a beautiful piece of silverware mounted upon an ebony peC destal. The cup bears the inscription: Ebenezer Lutheran Congregation to Rev. Dr. M. M. Kinard For Faithful Services as Pastor. 1887 to 1903. The congregation that gathered in Ebenezer church yesterdlay was one of the largest that has met there since the church was dedicated. Dr. Kinard chose his text from Hebrews xi., 16: "He hath p)rep)ared for them a city." Stealing and Selling Tobacco. John Suber, colored, wvho on last Tuesday finished serving a sentence of thirty clays on the county chaingang for stealing a coat, goes back this morning for another thirty. Saturday he was observed to Dc selling tobacco on the streets. He was arrested by Policemaa Bedenbaugh and p)lacedl in the hands of Chief Harris and Policeman Franklin while Mr. Bedenbaugh wvent to investi gate. Thirteen p)ounds of "Kite" to bacco was found in a wagon on the p)ublic square. Suber, when p)ressedl admitted that he had applrop)riated it from J. W. Kibler & Co., and on yes terday morning he wvas given thirty days by Mayor Earhardt. It is more than probable that he will also be taken in charge by Uncle Sam for selling to bacco without license.

COnsuIpIIon Salt pork is a famous old.. fashioned reniedy for con sumption. " Eat plenty of pork," wa:; th avKce to the consumptivC 50 and 100 years ago. Salt pork is good if a man can stomacu i,. The idea behind it is thac fat is the food the consumptive needs most. Scott's Emulsion is he mod. ern method of feeding fat to the Consumptive. Pork is too rough for sensitive stomachs. Scott's IEuilsion is the most refined of tits, especially prepared for easy digestion. Feeding him fit in this way, which is often the only way, is half the battle, but Scott's Emulsion does more than that. There is some thing about the combination of cod liver oil and hypophos phites in Scott's Emulsion that put:; n".w life into the weak part andi has a special actio:1 led lungs.
