WEDNEZDAY, M.RCH 30, 1887.
1. . DINKINS, Editor.
The efforts of the Manning Guard
to raise the necessary wherewith to!
uniform themselves, are meeting with
substantial and flattering encourage
ment. Our citizens, appreciating the
laudable enterprise they are striving
to accomplish, have responded liberal
ly to their request, and contributed
generously. They have, many of them,
ot nly given freely themselves, but
hae exerted their influence to induce
others to give. Notably is this the
em with one or two of our mer
chante, as will be seen by the list of
donations published elsewhere. Oth
er of our merchants have worked to
the same end and the result of their
labors will prove more or less success
fuL To all of them the members of
the Guard are supremely grateful, and
especialy do Messra. M Levi and S.
Wolkoyiskie merit their gratitude for
what they have acomplished.
A goodly amount of the contribu
tio consist of avariety of valuable
and useful articles to be sold at the
Pair to be given by the Guard on the
20th of April next. This occasion,
with the contributions already made
and the further help expected, will be
snmething to be remembered in time
to come, if we are to judge from the
immense preparations now on foot.
There is but one stumbling block in
- to way of the Guard and that is the
diffianky to procure a place large
enough to accommodate both the ma
terial of the Fair, and the largp crowrd
expected. But one place in Manning,
the Court House, is exactly suitable
for the purpose and our worthy Clerk
so far, for very good reasons, refuses
to give his consent for it to be used.
His reasons though good enough to
warrant him to continue obdurate,
yet they are not so good but that he
could, without any fault attaching to
him, grant the use of the building
and It is to be hoped he wil. And we
venture to say that after mature re
getion he will accede to the united
petition of the entire Guard strength
ined by the earnest entreaties of the
eitiens of Manning.
She unveiling of the Calhoun Mon
ument in Charleston on the 26th of
April is looked forward to as a grandi
day for Charleston and the whole
*State. That Carolina'sgreatest states
man, John C. Calhoun is to be honor
ed and his brilliant achievements
anemorializd by that distinguished
* rator of the South, L. Q. C, Lamar,
is attraction sufficient to draw every
body in the State able to get there, to
Chahisonto.witness the impressive
ceremonies. Besides this there will
be other attractions in Charleston at
the same time. The Floral Fair will
eb held about the 25th, 26th, and 27th,
which is always an object, of interest
to the State. The city will don her
gala robe, af'ording abundant sights
for countrymen outside to stare and
wonder at. It will be an occasion
long to be rernembered. The rail
seeds will no doubt give excursion
rates allowing everybody the opportu
aity to visit Charleston at this auspi
Simoourow, S. C., March 28. 1887.
Railroad stock is considerable
above par at this place now-fully up
tol10 per cent.
The chief engineers, Messrs. Peake
& Lee, with Messrs. Earle & Bruner,
ausistants brought a line to Summier
ton last Friday afternoon. A direct
line of twelve miles from Vance's Fer
ryto sumter, N. 6degrees E., stri.es
a poidtnear Mr. yohn C. Ingram's,
cue and ashalf miles from Summerton;
from this point they surveyed to Sum
merton. On Saturdaygmorning, with
a bearing of S. 19 degrees W., the
corps set out for Vance's. By 2 o'clock
they had proceeded over a lhne four
and abalf miles in length, a usual days
work. Captain Peake said that the
line via Summerton is decidedly the
cheapest, being the highest and dry
eat, and hence having better material
for work. They will unish the line
this morning, and in a few days, we'll
all know which line they will adopt.
You mind, Mr. Editor, you'll hurt
snomebody's feelinezs. Summerton has
not been feeding on "turkey and rice"
much, but somebody else has. We
have been feeding on light things so
far, and they enjoyed everything huge
ly,Ma hey seem to eat with comimg
appetite. Wve are Just paving the
way, you see; we'll get down to "sub
stantials" aftea awhile, and--then "pie
time." We understand that Mr. Fow
ler, tne superintendent, has several
nice positions to offer, to young men
especially, and that Mr. G. W. Dingle
is authorized to give the nature of the
work and to receive bids. A flag
;narked "Summerton Depot, Eutaw
ville . BR, 70 Miles from Charleston."
bas been hoisted in a beautiful field
of grasin the rearof Mr. M.S. Can-i

THE CiTY OF THE SAND HILLS.
Fetox, S. C., March 21, 1887.
Those geniuses who have recently aired
their "divine afflutus," in prose and metre
writings upon the balmy Spring resonant
with the iweet symaphony of birds, and of
the air, f.iighted with the perfume of sweet
wild wood flowers, etc., were evidently a lit
te premature and can relegiate themselves
to essayi and rhymes upon rhenmatics and
chilblains; that is, judging from the temp 1er
atre of last week with its edged winds and
almost zero mornings with the blighting
frosts o? winter it. .tead of the translucent
dew of Sprint. It is universally belie~ved
that the prach crop has been destroyed.
Whooping cough doesn't seem to have aa
entire monopoly in the epidemaic business,
for railroad tidk,' speculation, and gossip to
gether with timuber hunters and gassers, and
would-be timber sellers, appears to be a dis
ease with some just now, and the contagi on
seems to have spread to Sunmmerto'n and
Panla. As foreshadlowed is the columns
of the To.:s, early in January, this railroaa
movement, a.; far, at least, as concerns the
Manchester and Augusta road, will cud in
the substantial genuiness of the road being
built, and at once. Colonel Bridges, during
a recent visit here, said that the company
would in all probability buildi a branch road
from Antioch to Sumimerton; so if our Sum
Ifriends fail in secuting the Eutaw . dle they
can f.il back on the Mlanchester and Angus
Nhen our communities are willing to sub
scribe large sums of money, and townships
iimpose a tax as inducements for raihftoad
construction, it seems ehuost incredibk that
w! a acompany ask only for a free right of
- hat it should be miet by oppositon.
N v.heless, such was the caise here, as some
wanted abonus?or this privilage to the Com

at in sel-ecting as their agent to obtain grant

MIcIurin, whose argumentative tal.:nt and
the mellifluous tones of whose mellow voice
ha. acted like the songs of the siren upon
the hitherto obdurate opposers of a gratui
tous right of way. On e gentlemian iiving i:.

as this case is satisfactorily arranged, we
