SUMTER’S NEW SHERIFF

Mr. H. W. Scarborough, One of Bishopville’s Best Young Men.

Special to The State.

Bishopville, Sep. 15 – Mr. H. W. Scarborough, who has been elected sheriff, is a young man of sterling qualities and will no doubt perform the duties of that office acceptable to the people and with credit to himself.

John B. Moffett died here last week and his body was taken to Camden for burial. He was a native of Charleston but had been in business in Alabama for some time. He came here sick, his wife who was Miss. McDowell of Camden, being here on a visit to relatives. He died in two weeks after reaching this place, leaving a widow and one little boy.

Pro. P. H. Stoll arrived yesterday and our graded school will open on next Thursday.

C. R. Hassell, a piano tuner and agent for musical instruments, who been here for several weeks, fell under suspicion of not being all right, the boys gave him a polite invitation to leave. He did not stand on the order of his going, but took the first train out.

From all that be learned there will probably be another newspaper started in this place at any date.
