Dr. M. C. Wallace of Marlboro an~d
Mr. Jos. A. Burgess of Maysville,

Wallace is a practicing physician and
will attend all calls if he locates here.
We learn that on Thursday night
of last week thr$e of Mr.- W. T. P.1
Sprott of FosLvsbroken open
and robbd Lsilver watch, aj
Waterbury watch, wo small pistols
and one pair of gaiters' mis-matched,
marked on the inside the felt W. T. P.
S., corkbotomed. From the fact that
the thief stole one shoe of two pairs,
suspicion pointed to a small negro
boy about 17 years old who has only
one leg and is now missing. It is
supposed that he stole a ride on one
of the freight trains running between
Charleston and Columbia.
LAEER-The young robber was
caught and proved to be Joseph Cash
a colored boy well known in Manning
for his roguery and mischief. He
lost his leg about a year ago while
stealing a ride on a freight train of
the North Eastern R.R. He is now!
in jail here.
The State Fair is now in full blast.
Theecrowd ini attendance yesterday was
as large as at any time heretofore on
th opnin. 'ihe managing officers
are encouraged by the auspicious op
ening to believe tLat the success of
the Fair will be greater than ever be
fore known in its history. The Rail
roads have reduced the price for a
round trip ticket to an almost nominal
sum, $1 30. from Manning. Almost
every body can go at this price, and
its purposes, the promotion of agricul
ture, merits the patronage of the peo
ple. Manning and this county will be
well represented we are sure.

A Rising Youin Physician.
StMRToN, S. C., Oct. 28, 1S7.
Mr. EmTo'u: In the absence of any local
and political news, please allow we space in
our columns to tell a tide that may gladden
he heart -f some poor sufferer as mine has
>een. About six years ago, a small tumor
nade its appearance on my face midway
he right corner of my n:outh and chin; in
,yo years it grew to the size of a dime, then
livided in half and soughed ioff to tL' sur
aee of my face. Then it was the dread won
ter began its work of destruction. Two ex
>erienced physicians saw it and pronounced
I a real cancer. also, treated it, but to no pur
>ose: it continued to grow or eat slowly 'til
rst fall, while the itching and stinging were
Imost beyond human endurance. I had
iven up all hope of finding any reli-f from
tt venomous sting 'till life had ceased.
About the first of October last, Dr. Abram
Briggs saw it and (truly it was a dreadful
ore) undertook its cure. For the space of
wo months I began to dispare of a cure; af
er that time, the flow of purple matter in
reased rapidly, the itching and stinging to
essen. some month 1 ater, the rough
dges of the sore began to slough off in small
ieces, slowly tho'. and the parts cleared com
2enced to heal, and by the first of May 1887,
ay face was well and as smooth as an in
ants, and is now well. I write this, Mr. Ed
tor. for no other purposs on earth, but that
t may reach the eye of some that may be
uffering as I have sufferred, also, hoping
hat every journalist in the State that can
ympathize with suffering humanity, will
lace my case before its readers, that the un
irtunate may know where to find relief.

Frvzrox, S. C., November 7, 1887.
re'-. Charles Bracy, colored, more famil
trly known by the peole of his race as
Father Bracy," died at his home on the 4th
astant, in the plentitude of years-85-and
niered through the "gates ajar" to reap the
uerdon of a useful and wel-spent life. He
ras funeralized on yesterday with all the
onor, tenderness, and aflection that those
rat loved him so well, could pay to his menm
ry. Such a vast concourse of colored pee
le at a faneral at Fulton, has never before
een witnessed. The minimum estimate
ras 1.200. It is no exageration to say that
a was more universally known, loved, and
evered by his race than any man that ever
'ved. His wise and godly precepts and coa
cendable admonitions to his people, elicit
d the admiration and respect of the white
eople of the community, so long his borne.
his was attested by the presence of many
rominent white people at his funeral. The
reat iminence of this good old mian will be
adly missed. He endeavored alwatys to in
ulcate into his people the sublime princi
les of the "Golden Rule." It can be
aid of him as is said of Ben Adhem in those
"I pray thee, then,
Vrite me as one tha: lovea his fellow-man.
The Angel wrote and vanished. The next
t camne again with a great wakening light,
Lnd showed the names whom love of God
Lnd lo ! Ben Adhem's name led all the rest."
So will the Angel write the~ name of this
iumble but saintly servant upon Heaven's
?oster of the heirs of perfect Peace.
