WEDNESDAY; MARCH 14, 1888.
S. A. NETTLES, Editor.
TO MANNING BUSINESS MEN.
All agree that something must be
done to build up Manning, that its
voluie of business must be increased.
That is all true; but who is to do it?
and how is it to'be done? Heretofore
our business men have thought it was
sufficient to buy goods and place
them on the shelves in their stores,
expecting the people to know they
had.them. Occasionally a begrudg
ed advertisement, with possibly the
remark.it will do me no good, has
beenwgien the county paper, and still
the merchants wonder why the trade
leaves this place. It may seem
strange, but it is true, we get more
money for advertising from Sumter
merchants than from the Manning
merchants. Is it any wonder that
the Olarendon trade is going to Sum
ter! Is-it not natural for the people
to suppose that the merchant who
makes free use of printer's ink, and
tells them he has bargains for them,
is the one from whom they will buy
their goods? Will not this advertis
ing cause the people to talk to each
other about the merchant and place,
and then to go to That place and do
their trading? We get each year
about two or three times as much
money from the Charleston merchants
as from the Manning merchants, and
yet-our merchants complain that the
trade is going to Charleston. Our
Manning merchants say it does not
payto advertise; and the trade is
goi elsewhere: the Charleston
and ter merchants say it pays to
advertise in Clarendon papers ; and
thetrade is going to Sumter and
Charleston. Does it take a philos
.pber to read between these lines ?
Again, if the merchants patronize
thr home paper, a better paper can
1e. -pblihed, one that will reflect
- .dionthe town. A shabby, sickly
eigahe~i at once conveys the
-anon that it represents a shab
~- y town, doing a shabby 'ousiness.
Sdhe people of this county will bear
W-out in the assertion that we have
;,lwa published a paper superior to
hote e encouragement given us.
B we don't want any patronage
.tha comes to us in the shape of char
it. We do'a great deal of this. Ev
ery church fair and dinner and pri
4ste entertainment expects and de
anands us to advertise them for noth
Rig, seldom even thanking us for the
avsr, and- we do it willingly. We
- *equently give different merchants
.other parties, two, five, or ten dol
a freeadvertising; we do it cheer
' fully, and they take it as a matter of
codree. That is all right. But when
wre-ask a merchant for an advertise
ment, that is business, and we think
itarill benefit him and the town, and
- don't lketo be told, 'Tll give you
-aitte advertisement to help you on,
buti don't think it will do me any
Agood.E Nor do we so lower our self
reipect as to insist on any merchant
: .~mus an advertisement because
hives one to another paper. We
that one of the best ways to
the Clarendon trade is to adver
tise and thereby let the people know
that we can meet competition, and
not to sit quietly by, an'd let other
-mercanfacall offthe trade. For ev
ery dollar paid us, we endeavor to
miakeit-pay back five or ten fokl
Letour merchants keep a good sup
..W and variety of goods, sell at
'asmall proit, use printer's ink
freely and judiciously, and they
will find, a revolution in the trade
of this place. We mustmake an ef
fort to keep the trade, if we expect
A UARMFUL DRAMA.
We cannot say that we are unequiv
ocally opposed to theatre-going, but
our opinion is that it is generally
barmful We were last week at two
of the "plays by the Meyer-Thorne
Comedy company, and enjoyed it, but
afterwards, having calmly reviewed
the plays, we have come to the delib
erate conclusion, that both the plays
we saw were injurious, and especially
the one played Saturday night,
"Woman's Devotion." This play is,
we think, calculated to do .harm, by
familiarizing one with crime, and not,
at the same time makin~g it suf
frciently repulsive. In this play,
besides' other crimes, two murders
occur with the nonchalance of,
shooting an offending dog, and it has
the tendency to impress one, and es
pecaly the young, that human life
asbut little value. For a play not
to be harmful it should point a moral
or else be for fun. But where, as in
this play, grave crimes are committed
sad not at the same time condemned;
where one sees a man shot down, and
is not made to feel the horrors of such
a deed, we cannot see where aught
but harm can come. One might just
as well rmad the yellow back blood aud
thunder ten cents literature, as to
bear either pf the two plays alluded
to, "Woman's Devotion" or "M'Liss."
Wye do not wish to be understood as
ondemoning in a wholesale way the
drama, for we think that sometimes
it is beneficial in a numbher of ways,
and affords a great deal of innocent
recreation; but we do think that the
reading of yellow-back dime novels
and attending such plays as "o
apan's Devotion" are not caleuiated-to
improve or in any way bene~t the
sporals of our youths.

are faint rmors. of opposition to Con

DEATH OF EMPEROR WILLIAM.
Emperor William, of Germany, died
in the palace at Berlin, Friday, March
10th. He was born March 22, 1797,
and was therefore nearly ninety-one
years old. He was a man of many
fine traits of character, and devotedly
loved his German people. He re
ceived a military education, and took
part in the campaigns against Napol
eon in 1813 and 1814. In 1849 he be
came commander-in-chief of the Prus
sian army. In 1858, he was appoint
ed Regent, his brother, Frederick Wil
liam IV., becoming insane. In 1861,
he ascended the Prussian throne. In
1862, a civil war came near beginning
because of "divine right" ideas. In
1866, he had a war with Austria, and
in 1870, France declared war against
Germany. So both the Germans were
victorious, and the German ~ Empire
was formed, King William becoming
Emperor. France paid $1,000,000,000
indemnity and ceded Alsace and Lor
raine to Germany. He was married
in 1829. His eldest son, the afflicted
Crown Prince, married Victoria,
Princess Royal of England, in 1858.
He succeeds his father under the title
of Frederick the Third, and goes at
once from San Remo to Berlin to as
sume his high and responsible posi
The new emperor, Frederick, is suf
fering from cancer of the throat, and
is expected to live only a short time.
He is said to be a man of many fine
qualities, similar to his father's, and
that the Germans are pleased at his
accession to the throne. No materil
changes in the policy of the govern
ment are expected. At the death of
Frederick, William, his oldest son,
born Jan. 29, 1859, will become em
Col. E. B. C. Cash.
Col. E. B. C. Cash died at his res
idence in Chesterfield county last Sat
urday, March 10. Col. Cash was a
brave though rash man, and his name
will be remembered in connection
with dueling for years to come. The
last duel in this State was the mem
orable Cash-Shannon duel in 1880, in
which Col. Shannon received a mor
tal wound, and Col. Cash was put on
trial for his life, the first and only case
on record in the State in which a du
elist was tried for his life.
The News and Courier says, at the
beginning of the civil war Col. Cash
interested himself in the formation of
a regiment of volunteers and was
elected colonel of the 8th regiment,
which did excellent service at First
Manassas. Col. Cash was compli
mented by Gen. Kershaw, in his re
port of the battle, for his "courageous
bearing and his able and efficient con
duct of the regiment during the whole
When the time came for the reor
ganization of the army, Col. Cash was
not re-elected, and he returned to his
home near Cash's Depot, in Chester
field county, where he remained un
til the close of the struggle. Many
tales are told of his large-hearted
charity. Always abundantly supplied
with corn and wheat, he declined ab
solutely to sell it to speculators, but
held it and sold it to persons in the
neighborhood who were in needy cir
cumstances. It may be said that -he
gave his stores away, for the price he
charged for it, in Confederate money,
was only what such grain was worth
in gold before the war.
Col. Cash took but little interest in
public affairs until the campaign of
1876, when he was an active and ar
dent supporter of Gen. Hampton and
the other Democratic candidates. He
was an uncompromising Democrat in
the campaigni of 1876, and devotedly
attached to Gen. Hampton. It is re
lated of him that when Gen. Hamp
ton was recovering from the accident
which so nearly p~roved fatal, Col.
Cash went up to him and congratulat
ed him and was so overcome by emo
tion that he could not utter a word
save, "Thank God." The tears liter
ally poured down his furrowed cheeks.
Yet in 1882 Col. Cash joined himself
to the Greenbaek-Republican party in
South Carolina, and denounced Gen.
Hampton and all the Democratic
leaders in South Carolina in a most
extravagant fashion. Col Cash was
the candidate for Congress in his dis
trict on the Greenback-Republican
ticket, and was defeated.
CoL Cash was a man of strong pas
sions, and ill-regulated mind, but he
had undoubtedly some high and good
qualities, and it is pleasauter to dwell
upon-these at sueh a time as this than
to recall the darker phases of his sad
