cunt help but do you good Pharmacy When a representative from an outside town arrives in the city and sells groceries to our people the grocers hero do not approve of it If a travelling tailor comes to town and takes orders for clothing to bo made in another town the local tailor kicks A dry goods representa tive coming to town and visiting the inhabitants taking orders is thrown slurs at by the merchants and so with all other professional men that do the town whether honest and legitimately or nol it cuts no ice whatever they all alike are cussed out These merchants that raise this con stant howl at least the most of them are the ones that will walk into a newspaper shop boost it up a little expect a good word through the columns of the pa per and finally give a few liltlo locals with the re quest that bo published free paying for them with a thank you most of the time not even that much The publisher will after tak ing into consideration the favor done and the benefit reap ed from the ad will call on Mr Merchant and ask for a little paying ad a few lo calsor such The answer gen erally will be that times are so hard just at present but will call on you shortly Before the bus iness call several pops will be made with free advertising The time for a paying ad to bo at hand the publisher makes an other talk The merchant will tty to pieces and cordially in vite you to your own little hole in wall to await further orders but they never come Not so very long ago a gentleman from one of the outsidetowns arrived with his little money making scheme He went to some of the merchants and received adver tising placed them on a long card and after framing placed them on a few of the cor ners in the city He got his pay for left town taking what he made with him After the home publishers take free ads for quite a whilethen put a small price on a pay ing ad the money collected is spent in town The merchant does not look at the few dimes spent here They would rather give an outsider 10 cents and let him take it to an other town than togive the home publisher 2f and after a few days receive it back A town is generally built up greatly by the aid of a newspaper and to

another negro 01 Mrs Blauds plantation neai here about 25 cents that Walkei owed Craig for cutting down n tree Craig hired Walker last Saturday to cut down the tree and asked him to wail until this morning for his money which Walker agreed to do In the meantime Craig split the tree up and sold it for 82 This morning when Walker asked him for his money he told him that he would have to wait as lie did not have it Walker began cursing him and told him that he was trying to beat him out of his money Craig walked off Walker went home got his shotgun overtook Craig and emptied the contents of one barrel of the gun into Uraig killing him instantly Walker has not yet been arrest ed South Carolinas Iislol Law quantities Besides the importation of pistols into South Carolina can not bo forbidden by a state law and they will continue to in The object of the South Caro lina pistol law is commendable but it will hardly prove effective to any appreciable extent A much better cure of the pistoltoting evil would be for judges and juries to enforce rigidly the law against carrying concealed weapons PainlcJ htragraphs A i u y preach the little sermon headed Patronize home industry but the preachers of this sermon are the ones who do not always prac tice it It costs nothing to have cotton put up in roundlap bales as the the premium more than pays the baling charge If you want to hold you can stoi e your bales or take them home and at any time sell them at the highest market price for roundlap bales Thesu bales aremoreeasily handled than square bales take up less room and are loss liable to damage by fire or bad weather Spinners prefer them and will buy every roundlap bale made The pistol habit has provoked Sou th Carolina to a very strenuou flort to suppress it A Law was enacted at the last session of the legislature which provides that after Inly i 1902 the sale of pistols of ordinary size shall be prohibited in that state All pistols sold or offered for sale in South Carolina after the date named must be at least 20 inches long and not weigh less than three pounds It would be almost impossible to conceal a twentyinch pistol on the person and the average man would very soon tire of lugging about a three pound weapon The weak point of this law is that it does not forbid the sale of cartridges that will fit pistols of ordinary size and they will prob ably continue to be sold in large all a man a donkey and ha U ijit to kick Love and a silver dollar are tested by the ring Keep in the straight and nar path aud avoid the crowd Most women who angle for
