MR. F. W. DICKSON.
No event happening in Manning
ever excited more profound sorrow
than the announcement of the death
of this gentleman, on Thursday morn
ing, the 20th inst. Mr- Dickson was
born near the village of Darli-gton, in
1859. Early in life he moved to Man
ning, making it his permanent home.
In 1884 be was elected a member of
the Town Council, which position h,
filled acceptably to the time of his
death, being re-elected in 1885 and
again in '86. Apparantly in the full
cnjoyment of perfect health, last Feb
ruarv he was suddenly prostrated with
a violent attack of pneumonia, which
soon developed into a rapid consunip
tion that terminated his life. fe bore
his sufferings calmly, with a spirit of
meek fortitude, and having given him
sel' tb the care of the Fatber in Heav
en, when the end came, surrounded by
sorrowing, weeping relatives and
friends, he died in the full assurance
of a blissful eternity.
Young in years, cultivated, affable
in manner and address, our friend
seemed happily fitted to enjoy .the
luxuries and pleasures of life, but just
at the time that hope was most buo
yant with the promise of a golden fu
ture, the frost came, he withered and
died-"A fresh cup of immortality
Flynn W. Dickson has gone
"To that land where the wings of
the soul are unfurled;
And now, like a star beyond ev-en
- ing's cold dew,
Looks radiently down on the tears
of the wvorld."
A large, sympathetic, serious con
gregation was present at the funeral
services Friday morni~ng. Rev. Mr.
Leard, the patriarchal pastor of the
31ethodist Church, preached the fu
neral' sermon. His theme was found
ed on the passage of scripture, "O(
that thev were wise, iist they under
stood this, that they would consider
their latter end!I" The occasion was
solemn and impressive-.the milnister
with locks hoary from agi, his f~eling,
earnest words urging his hearers to a
better iife, and the mute appeal of the
lieless friend and companion of the
greater part of the audience-more
than one eve was bede wed with the
silent tear, and many returned home
with lasing impressions for good.
Our merchants, with a praisewor
thy and tender respect for the deceas
ed, closed their houses of business and
attended the funeral
A TRIBUTE OF ESTEEM1.
At a meeting of the Town Council
this morning, the following preamble
and resolutions were adopted:
Whereas, since the last meeting,. of

Picnic Last Saturday.
M . Enrron: On last Saturday
norning .a gay and sprightly crowd of
young folks assembled at Mr. David
Levi's to enjoy the pleasure that can
be derived from a picnic where the
assemblage and the place are happily
chosen. Last Saturday's picnic most
fortunately possessed these requisites:
The assemblage was compose' of
the I/*/ and ligh of the surrounding
ountry. They met to spend a day
f unalloyed pleasure, and as far as
y observation went, none seemed to
1ave been disappointed.
'he place-the resi9 nce lately occu
~id br Dr. Caldwell, but now occu
ed byv Mr. David Levi-was every
hing that could be desired. The en
tire house was placed at the disposal
f the pienicers, and dancing was the
rder of the day.
Everybody present joined in the
:ance, excepting two or three gentle
n, who plead the plausible excuse
for not indulging-heaviness of the
cet. and stiffness of the joints.
Durinig the latter part of the day a
erman, under the admirable leader
ship of Mr.Blonham, was inaugurated.
Cake and lemonade was served be
ween dances, and about six7 o'clock
inner, composed of the usual picnic
(lit, was served under the shade of
the fine old oaks that stand, in front of
the house. The pleasure of the day
as enhanced by the pjresenlce of Miss
Durham, of Greenville, who is visiting
her sister, Mrs. E. A. Tindal, of Sum
merton. Shortly after the throng of
merry pi'nileers started1 on their home
ward'journey a heavy rain began fall
ing, which I am afraid somewhat
langn~e'd the recollections of the
pleasures of the day for many. So
aras my experience teaches, picnics,
as a general rule, are extremely dull
and stupid, but I must admit that on
this occasion I had a huge time, and
in this respect I have no doubt, but
what was my experience, wa the ex
perience of all present.

I would have it changed, 'cause dat is

theui to pay five or ten thousand dol
lars for a railroad, an never get it
but the way it will end if Summertor
ever gets a'railroad-they will have t<
