THE MANNING TIMES.
S. A. NETTLES, Editor.
WEDNESDAY, August 8, 1888.
DARGAN AND MARION.
The Marion Star, which is, by the
way, one of the oldest and best papers
in the State, takes us to task thus:
The MYaso Tnizs, in its issue of last
week, in speculating upon the chances of
the candidates at the late Congressional
Convention for this District, said editorial
ly : "Two years ago the Marion delegation
withdrew from the Congressional Conven
tion because they could not defeat Mr. Dar
This is an egregious misapprehension as
to the cause of the. withdrawal of Marion's
delegation on that occasion, on the part of
our usualy accurate cotemporary ;and one
which, in justice to that delegation, it is
tobe regretted that the TIMES should heve
been laboring under for the past two years.
That delegation entered that Convention
under positive instructions as to the method
of nomination which it should support an a
without any particular candidate in view,
and probably, in the absence of such in
structions, and had it remained in the Con
vention, a majority of the members com
posing it would have supported Mr. Dargan
on the first ballot and every succeeding one
while. a chance remained for him, and would
have also supported him in a primary had
such been ordered. It was in for a fair and
open race in which Mr, Dargan would have
bad in equal ehance with any ether proba
ble candidate. It represented a thoroughly
prima* County and was instructed to ad
vocate primary nominations in the District;
but when it found itself in a convention in
which partisanship was stronger than con
sideration for the popular voice and saw
that a majority of its members were bent
upon placing a nominee in the field at all
events-and without regard as to whether or
not such candidate was the choice of the
people, the Marion delegation, rather than
be party to such a political outrage, with
drew-from the Convention.
Such. was the reason, and not hostility to
Mr. Dargan, or any one else that caused the
'withdkuwal of that delegation and its action
was endersed by this entire County.
We do not desire to do injustice to
anyone, or to misrepresent any see
tion. We cannot now recall just how
we got the- impression that Marion
'withdrew from the convention two
years ago to defeat Dargan, but that
impression is fixed in our cranium,
the argument of .our esteemed con
temporary to the contrary. We shall,
however, take pleasure hereafter,
whea occasion may offer, of saying
on the authority of the Star, that all
of Marion is not opposed to Dargan.
We are glad to see that the Star, in
another editorial, gracefully submits
to the defeat of Marion's candidates.
- Clarendon likewise had the misfor
tune of seeing her first choice defeat
ed, but like a brave soldier, she will,
under the leadership of the gallant
-T and noble Benbow, pile up Dargan's
-miajority at the polls next November.
-We confess to not liking the rea
soigcontained in the third para
grah above. Suppose the Marion
&lgton was instructed to vote for
primary, two years ago, that is no
reasonfor desiring to use coercion to
influence the rest of the district. The
-- aority of the district just as strong
4 esrda convention, and we be
lieve it is an accepted principle in a
republican government that the mi
nority must, right, or wrong, submit
* t the will of the'majority. But did
not Marion go into the convention
this' time with simihir instructions ?
Yet she did not withdraw when
convention was again adopted. Pos
sibly it was a delicate compliment to
Clarendon, as we understand that on
the fifth- ballot Marion would have
'ie Benbow her ten votes. Yet the
tatis there that under similar con
ditions the action was different, ex
cept in one respect: two years ago it
was certain that Dargan wouldi go in
on first ballot; this year there was a
possibility of Dargan's defeat. We
mentioni this ashorroberative testimno
ny that the Marion delegation with
drew because they could not defeat
Dargan. Almost any unbiased per
son would have drawn the same con
clusion. But we are glad to know
that our conclusions were wrong.
Dargan is a favorite with Clarendon,
and personally we don't like to sup
port any man unless he has merit.
We are laboring under the imnpres
sion that Dargan is very .popular in
the entire district, except about
Florence and in Marion. Florence
and Darlington are rival towns, very
jealous of eaeh other, and this prob
ably accounts for that : but what is
the reason in Marion? We shall be
pleased to have our esteemed contem
porary enlighten us on this question,
for we cannot conceive of any cause
in Marion for disaffection. Dargan
has, in our opinion, made an excel
lent congressman-a record of which
be may be proud.
The Teachers' normal school jiow
*in progress in this town is one of the
best institutes we have ever attended.
Principal W. S. Morrison understands
bis work thoroughly, and his lectures
are very interesting. Dr. ~E S.
Joynes, is a master in English, and
very high authority in the'State. He
always has something good to say.
Mr. G. E Stokes is a young man,
who ranks among the best educators
ofithe State, and all his talks show
study and thought. Every teacher
in the county should attend, and any
one interested in education will find
much to interest them. The evening
lectures will be a pleasing feature of
the institute. The institute will close
General Philip H. Sheridan, of the
UJnited States army, died last Sun
day night in the fifty-eighth year of
The second inter-county institute
of Sumter and Clarendon counties
was opened in the Court House in
Manning last Monday, with prayer
by Rev. H. M. Mood. Mr. S. A. Net
tles, of the county board of examin
ers, then formally turned the institute
over to Principal W. S. Morrison.
Prof. Morrison at once entered upon
his lecture, the subject of which was
fractions. Prof. Morrison then brief
ly took up the different rules in frac
tions, and showed the best plans of
teaching them, urging upon teachers
the importance of doing their work
well and carefully, and of teaching the
principles of explaining the work by
object lessons, rather than having a
child to comunit to memory some dif
ficult rule he does not understand.
Let the child understand the princi
ple, before he attempts a rule. At
the close of the lecture an interesting
discussion was entered into on wheth
er or not it was best to teach rules, or
to allow the child to formulate his
own rules after he had learned the
principles. Prof. Morrison had but
little use for rules, and thought he
would be willing to have arithmetics
Dr. E. S. Joynes took up his half
hour in talking upon the great difli
culty of teaching English, owing to its
wants of grammatical forms. He
wrote the word "love" on the board,
showing that in itself it had no gram
matical life, but by its relations to
other words it might assume many
grammatical forms. This was a good
example to show the difficulties of
Prof. G. E. Stokes discussed the
subject of teaching reading, claiming
that the art of teaching reading was un
questionably the most difficult to
teach. He presented objections to
the old style of teaching reading, the
A B C method, the phonetic method,
and the word method. He preferred
the objective word method. The
child learned to read by hearing the
word as a whole, and not by knowing
the integral value of the sounds of the
word. At the close of the lecture,
Prof. Morrison gave an instance of a
class of young negro children at a
State Normal in Columbia, who, in a
very short time, learned to read, sing,
&c., all by the objective word method.
This was, in his opinion, the very best
method of teaching reading. A ques
tion was raised by Dr. Joynes why it
was that the young people of to-day
spelled so much worse than they did
a quarter of a century ago, which
elicited some discussion.
Prof. Morrison gave the following
words to the teachers to spell: Tran
quillity, inflammatory, alpaca, ac
knowledgment, infringement, insepar
able, indelible, deleble, intercede, su
persede, halos, millennium, metallic,
contrariwise, tantalize, criticise, licenti
ate, sacrilegious, numskull, tyrannical.
Dr. Joynes took up each of the
words, and annalized their spelling.
The institute then, after several an
nouncements, adjourned with the ben
ediction by Rev. A. Nettles.
A large anid intelligent audience
asembled in the court house Mon
day evening to here Prof. Morrison
lecture on "Familiar names in local
istory." Prof. Morrison is a fine
speaker, and has a happy use of lan
guage that at once captivates his au
ience. He gave interesting histor
ical facts connecte'd with many places
and names in South Carolina. Those
who failed to hear the lecture, missed
a valuable treat.
The institute was opened promptly
at 9.30 A. ar., with prayer by Rev. H.
Prof. Morrison gave the following
uotation, for the teachers to com
mit to memory:
Thou must be true thyself,
If thou the truth wouldst teach:
Thy heart must overflow if thou
Another's heart wouldst reach.
It needs the overflow of heart
To give the lips full speech.
Dr. Joynes resumed his lecture on
English, directing attention to analy
sis and parsing. Both were impor
tant. A few years ago, attention was
directed mainly to parsing; now to
analysis. Entirely too little attention
is given to parsing, the analysis of
words, and in consequence very few
of our young people can intelligently
parse. We should combine the two.
He treate d of the sentence, subject
and predicate. The subject is that of
which we speak, whether one or many
words, and the predicate is likewise
what is said, and nothing less is the
subject and predicate. No one word
should be taken out and considered a
bare subject or a bare predicate,
but all the words showing of what
something is .said, and including all
the modifiers, is the subject and the
only subject. He claims that there is
no such distinction as logical and
grammatical subject. Analysis has
nothing *hatever to do with word
Prof. Morrison gave an interesting
lecture on teaching writing. He pre
fers to have the pupil count the
strokes as he learns how to write.
Best results can be thus obtained.
Prof. Stokes explained the use of
the reading chart in the primary
schools. It was the best means of
teaching and interesting the young
child. Get the young child interest
ed in his work by telling him stories,
asking him questions, and usinig any
means to interest him. Go slow in
using the chart; several days should
be spent on a page.
The question boxt was then opened,
and several interesting questions were
discussed. Dr. Joynes thought that
one examination for teachers should
About twelve o'clock a fifteen min
utes' recess was taken.
Dr. yoynes resumed his lecture on
English. He called the attention of
teachers to several books that would
be helpful to them in teaching. He
that in the analysis of sentences, sep
arate them into complete subject and
complete predicate, without refer
ence to their grammatical forms.
Prof. Morrison lectured on history,
especially local history, saying that
history is a record of men's lives; not
of battles. The object of history is
(1) to quicken intelligence, (2) to im
prove the judgment, (3) to enlarge
the sympathies, (4) to broaden the
character of life. The teaching of
history should begin with home his
tory of the present day, rather than
ancient history in the times of Cesar
and Darius. begin by teaching his
tory of South Carolina, and the child
will be far more interested. History
teaching may be divided into three
periods: (1) the story period, (2) cause
and effect period, (3) the philosophy
period. The first period belongs to
school work, and the teacher himself
should be a "saturated solution" of
the subject he wishes to teach. The
other two periods belong to college
and university work. He suggested
the following topics to the teachers in
their class room, in teaching local his
tory: (1) When and by whom was
this town (or dounty) settled; (2)
What were the first boundaries, and
what are its present boundaries? (3)
Tell all you know of the early settlers;
(4) Name any important historical
incidents connected with town or
county; (5) Mention present indus
tries; (6) Name town and county of
ficers, and explain their duties.
Prof. Stokes occupied his half hour
in lecturing on spelling. He thought
it was best to combine written and
oral spelling. A word comes to us
by seeing it written or hearing it spo
ken. Write a word on the black
board, let the pupils see it; erase it,
and have the children write it.
The exercises closed with the dox
ology sung by the institute.

Dr. Joynes last night addressed an
appreciative audience on the English
language, which is, he said, one of
noblest origin and widest range, and
of incomparable wealth and beauty.
It was derived mainly from the
French, German, Latin, and Greek.
As the English nation adds to its
wealth by conquest, so the English
laguage borrows from other lan
guages what it needs assimilating
them to its own use and kind. The
lecture was expressed in beautiful
language, and the tribute to the En
glish language was grand.
School Commissioners P. G. Ben
ow and 3. T. Wilder are both attend
ing the institute.
THAT MAN TILLMAN.
On our first page will be found ac
counts of the campaign meetings at
Sumter and Florence. These ac
counts are from the News and Cour
ier, and written by a man who hates
Tilman. We are no advocate of
Tilman, though we admire many
things in the m-n and some things
he advocates; and especially do we
admire in this free country freedom
of speech. Tillman and a number of
the Chester citizens disgraced them
selves in Chester in insulting the
Governor of the State-Tillman in
saying he had no respect for Govern
or Richardson, and the citizens in yell
ing to the Governor to sit down. Tfill
man, however, immediately retracted
what he said, but the disgraceful
stigma still rests on Chester. Till
man has been at most of the cam
aign meetings, and comes out of
them with considerable glory. By
his manly conduct he has won the
confidence and respect of the people,
and while they still consider him an
unsafe leader and wanting in Judg-.
mert, yet he has coinclusively proven
himself to be a man of true princi
pes, a brave man, and withal a
staunch Democrat. The correspond-.
ent of the News and Co urier, bully
like, attempted Monday, in Black
vile, to force him, on the speakeds
stand, to a hand to hand fight, but
Tillman refused, saying ladies were
present, but he would give him an
opportunity later. This agitation of
public affairs will do good, and can
do no harm. Tillman is one "of the
smartest men in the State, only he
lacks judgment to balance his great
Mrs. L. A. Field, of Atlanta, Ga.,

of the United States, which, from a

What is this Disease that is coming
Upon Us ?
Like a thief at night it steals
in upon us unawares. The pa
tients have pains about the
chest and sides, and sometimes
in the back. They feel dull
and sleepy; the mouth has a
bad taste, esIpcilly in the
morning. A sort of sticky slime
collets about the teeth. The
appetite is poor. There is a
feeling like a heavy load on the
stomach; sometimes a faint, all
gone sensation at the pit of the
stomach which food does not
satisfy. The eyes are sunken,
the hands and feet become cold
and clammy. After a while a
cough sets in, at first dry, but
after a few months it is attend
ed with a greenish-colored ex
pectoration. The patient feels
tired all the while, and sleep
does not seem to afford any
rest. After a time he becomes
nervous, irritable and gloomy,
and has evil forebodings. There
is a giddiness, a sort of whirl
ing sensation in the head when
rising up suddenly. The bow
els become costive; the skin is
dry and hot at times; the blood
becomes thick and stagnant;
the whites of the eyes become
tinged with yellow; the urine
is scanty and high colored, de
positing a sediment after stand
ing. There is frequently a
spitting up of the food, some
times with a sour taste and
sometimes with a sweetish
taste; this is frequently at
tended with palpitation of the
heart; the vision becomes im
paired, with spots before the
eyes; there is a feeling of great
prostration and weakness. All
of these symptoms are in turn
present. It is thought that
nearly one-third of our popu
lation has this disease in some
of its varied forms.
It has been found that phy
sicians have mistaken the cause
of this disease. Some have
treated it for a liver complaint,
others for kidney disease, etc.,
etc., but none of these kinds of
treatment have been attended
with success; for it is really
constipation and dyspepsia. It
is also found that Shaker Ex
tract of Roots, or Mother Sei
gel's Curative Syrup, when
properly prcpared will remove
this disease in all its stages.
Care must be taken, however,
to secure the genuine article.
IT WILL sELL BETITER THAN
Mr. John C. Hemptinstall,
of Chulafirmee, Cleburn Co.,
Aa., writes: "My wife has
been so much benefited by
Shaker Extract of Roots or
Seigel's Syrup that she says
she would rather be without
part of her food than without
the medicine. It has done her
more good than the doctors and
all other medicines put together.
I would ride twenty miles to
get it into the hands of any suf
ferer if he can get it in no other
way. I believe it will soon sell in
this State better than cotton.
TESTIMONY FROM TEXAs.
Mrs. S.E. Barton, of Varner,
Ripley Co., Mo., writes that
she had been long afflicted with
dyspepsia and dis ease of the
urinary organs and was cured
by Shaker Extract of Roots.
Rev. J. J. McGuire, merchant,
of the same place, who sold
Mrs. Barton the medicine, says
he has sold it for four years
and never knew it to fail.
SHE WAs ALMOST DEAD
I was so low with dyspep
sia that there was not .a phy
sician to be found who could
do anything with me. I had
fluttering of the heart and
swimming of the head. One
day I read your pamphlet called
"Life Among the Shakers,"
.which described my disease
better than I could myself. I
tried the Shaker Extract of
Roots and kept on with it until
to-day I rejoice in good health.

extent of ground covered, our motto shall always be THoRouGHSs. To this
end, we shall require that every lesson be learned, if not in time for the class
recitation, then elsewhere. No real progress can be made so long as the
pupil is allowed to go on from day to day reciting only half-perfect lessons.
