An unknown negro attempted to
(.ash a forged (?heck for $2XS at the
Bank Of Sumter Wednesday, but made
a butch pf it. The forgery was a
erude affair and when the negro saw
that Teller Bartow Walsh hesitated
about paying the money he made a
dash for the door and escaped before
i policeman could be called to assist
him. The check purported to be
drawn by Levi Bros. In payment for
four bales ol* cotton, but was so poor?
ly written on an ordinary counter
check that it would not have deceived
any one at all familiar with tho
checks usually Issued by Lev! Bros.

most forgiven.?Bailey.
Supervisor I?. M. Pitts Has Heavy j
A very rerlotia ?he occurred abo it )
Cvs miles from Buniter Wednesday,'
October 6th. 4 a. m., at the place of
the County Supervisor, Peter M. Pitts
Involving a total loss of $1,700. OJn
house. fr;iw mill fixtures and seven
bales of cotton being consumed wuh
no insurance. Mr. Pitts does not believe
it was of Incendiary origin but <vtt
probably Ignited by lighting as the e
was quite an eleetnc display during
the night and morning. The fire n id
made such headway that it was Im?
possible to save anything from th?
burning buildlvgs. CJreat regret is
expressed by the many friends of Mr.
Mrs. Housekeeper,
Mr. Farmer:
