system. Mr. Wilder is himself a practical
school teacher of the progressive kind, well
educated, and well up in all the latest
methods of teaching. If all the commis

would be a great deal less complaint about

of Sutton, S. C., has located here for the
purpose of studying telegraphy. He has a

A grand stand is being erected for their

Crops are looking well though somewhat

I was entirely ignorant of the existence of
such a paper until it was read at our club

high compliment paid me, I cannot consent

I have no claim upon the people of Clar

The Auditor Replies.
Mn. Enrro:-In your issue of May 23d,
I see the Treasurer explains. It becomes
my duty to correct his explanation. He
says: "Now it frequently occurs that the
same name is found charged up with taxes
unpaid in an9ther township different to the
one the party lives in;'or perhaps in the
same township two tax charges to the same
namne in separate places **The mistakes
are called 'double entries' ** This is a
question which does not apply to my offie,
**The auditor cannot be ' blamed for
Every year there are corrections and
abatements to make because of the hun
dreds of returns made by colored people,
friends returning for friends among them
ses, and many of these the auditor never
heard of before, and would not know them
if he should see them. While this is sothe
Treasurer is mistaken when he asserts that
it is a 'are occurence when taxes are collect
ed and he failsatozmark itasoon the book.
The fact is,it is arare occurence when the
double entries are found and a common oc
curene when the tax is collected and failure
is made to maric it paid. The majority of
these few double entries are caused by the
Treasurer's neglect. For example, the tax
payer calls for his taxes. The Treasurer
carelesly looks for his name, and tells him
there is no tax charged. *nst him, and
sends himtome foran add'tional. He gets
the same, and pays tax, and when the
Treasurer closes his collection I find that
the name was on the book and overlooked
by him. I do not merely assert these
things, but can prove them by the books in
my offce, and will take pleasure in doing
so, at any time, to any one who desires to
know the truth about it. In twenty cases
(not selected) recently exmined in sherif's
offie when receipts have been found, two are
by additionals, as above stated, one double
entry, and 17 single entries where the Treas
urer collected the taxes and failed to mark

A handbook to the Great Truths of
Capt. J. A. Mlay, of Kingstree, S. C., is at
the Central Hotel, and is the agent here for
"Hitchcock's New and Complete Analysis
of the Bible."
The work is a large octavo volume of
about 1,200 pages, and contains, of course,
all that is in the ordinary Bible, together
with Cruden's Revised Concordance. The
work has been earnestly commended by the
most eminent scholars of all denomina
tions, and it has been very happily describ
ed as the Bible of the Workmng Christian.
It is pre-emiinently the Bible of the busi
ness man, the man of moderate scholarship
and of more mzoderate leisure. The reader
my turn with a wonderful and unerring
rapidity to any subject that may be referred
o in the Scriptures.
It takes only a glance at Hitchcock's great
work to show that it is, perhaps. the most
admirable publication that has been offered
for sale within the past twenty-five years.

The Manning Cemetery.
At a meeting last Friday of the citizens
interested in the cemetery, a temporary or
ganization was effected by electing W. J.
Clark, president; S. A. Rigby, vice
president; S. A. Nettles, secretary;
and Dr. G. Allen Huggins, treasurer. The
following committee was appointed to make
application to the clerk of court for charter:
Messrs. J. E. Scott, G. A. Huggings, and S.
A. Nettles. A general discussion ensued
relative to putting the cemetery in proper
shape at once, and Messrs. G. A. Huggins,
W. K. Bell, and L. Appelt were appointed a
committee to solicit subscriptions for the
purpose of putting the cemetery in repair,
and to have the work done as soon as practi
cable. A charter will be obtained shortly,
and early in July a permanent organization
will be effected.
As soon as the association is legally or
ganized, proper steps will then be taken to
keep the cemetery in such condition as not
to be an eye-sore to the town. Under the
skilful supervision of the late Dr. G. A.
Huggins, the ceuietery is already in such a
condition as to requires bit little work to
make it a beautiful place. .
