At a meeting of the Board of Ex

Friday, the following school text books
were adopted for use in this county,
for the next five years: Swinton s
readers, Appleton's supplemental
readers, Davidson's S. C. history,
Barnes's histories, Sanford's interme
diate arithreietie, Robinson's practical
arithmetic, Reed and Kellogg'agram
mars, Swinton's spellers, Worcester's
dictionaries, Spencerian copy books,
Maury's geographies. According tc
a resolution of the State Board of ed
uation these will be the only books
of the kind allowed in the public
scools of this county for the next five
Manning, a Cotton Market.
Higher Prices Paid for Cotton in Man
ning Than in Any Market in the State.
For along time the cry has been
going up from Manning, for a cotton
buyer, a cotton buyer. It was claim
ed that our merchants paid two low
prices, and took advantage of the far
mers in buying. The Trams has been
very active in getting a cotton buyer;
and now we are supplied. In this
week's issue will be found the cards
of -three cash cotton buyers: besides
all our merchants buy too. Our mer
chants are anxious to keep the buy
ers, but they make them pay such
prices asthey have been accustomed
to pay. Mr. Williams, who repre
sents a firm that is buying cotton in
five counties in the State, says this
is the highest cotton market in the
State. Cotton sold here last week,
for cash, at even quotations with the
Charleston market. Storm and dam
aged cotton brought far higher prices
here than in any town in the State.
It is a mistaken idea, in our judg
ment, for the farmers to hold their
cotton for better prices. There is a
big crop made, and the prices are
not at all apt to be much higher than
now. There are now three cotton
buyers in the market, competing with
our merchants, and farmers may rest
satisfied in getting tip top prices in

The Comptroller-General, in behalf of the
Board of Pensions and for himself, desires
to return thanks to the Clerks of Court
throughout the State and to the Auditors
for their courtesies in attending to the bus

Robert N. Welch.
The announcement of the death of this
most estimable gentleman recalls his resi
dence in Charleston thirty-five years ago.
Our older citizens will remember him, keep
ing a gentleman's furnishing store on the
northwest corner of Meeting and Market
streets, where he conducted a successful bus
iness for some years. Mr. Welch came to
this city from Baltimore, and by his elegant
manners and suave address made many
friends here. In the years succeeding the
war, as it appears. he remained in Ciaren
don countrv, where he had gone when hos
tilities begun, and so he had passed out of
memory these later years.
It is a mournful privilege to record his
worth as a citizen, and his merit as one of
our most esteemed business men of another
generaton.-Charestonl Bud get.
Work en Wofford College.
SPAnANBUno, Sept. 23-Mr. Eugene Tes
sier, who took the contract for the six thou
sand dollar mess hall of Wofford College,
has already commenced work on the foun
dation. The repairs on the college building
are progressing very rapidly, and will be
finished by the first of October. The new
slate roof is quite a contrast to the old tin
roof, which has been an eyesore to the
Sprtanburg people so long.
Dr. A. Coke Smith only yesterday said
that the prospects for Wofford were never
brighter than at present. He thinks he is
sure of forty men for the freshman class,
and expects to open the fitting school with
Ibetween sixty and seventy..five scholars.

PAsora, Sep. 24.-There is seemingly
much unrest as to the probable yield of the
cotton crop. There never has been a time
in my experience where so many disasters
have followed the farming interest of our
community in one short year. The severe
and prolonged drought ruined the corn
crops. The continued rain for days and
weeks has chased the hopes cE many. The
fleecy staple has an ugly hue for marketing.
It is only for a few fleeting days we have
had sunshine and then we make the best of
it, and pull the coory staple for all its worth.
Farmers are very much behind, cotton in
the fields and every body, "by jingo." We
Panolaites are interesting ourselves on ta
toes, peas, and goose sauce, just as happy
as a dead pig in the sun shine.
We got out of the hot into the cool. All
our primaries are over. We thought Clar
endon the hottest place in the world, that
is for hot sun. Our engineers must run
their primaries in the winter some times.
Let us get a cool bath alternately with the
hot; it will be more in the nature of things,
more congenial to the heated feelings of a
defeated candidate. Mr. Editor, can you
give me light on this all important query:
Why does a poor fellow blame his neighbor
when beaten for office? Why curse and
foam and look so ugly? Some men damn
and curse their very shoe strings and be
come furiously ill-natured, because they did
not follow Dave Tucker's advice. By the
way, who is Dave? Give me his where
abouts, He has merited plaudits for the
last ;piece written. Tom thinks just as
Dave thinks, but when will all this proph
ecy be fulfilled ?
Our thriving little town has lost the rail
road; Summerton lost it too, but our ener
getic friends are on the fast train. They
propose to cut and build a big street one
mile long and one hundred yards wide.
Then comes the mighty evolution. Sum
merton will move to the railroad, or the rail
road from the Central coast line, by the un
tiring and persistent survey of Capt. Wilson,
will move right into Summerton. Then
with the fat Major as intendant, our county
will never boast of a finer country village.
&The Eutawville railroad is progressing
rapidly. If it had not been for the bridge
disaster, the work could have .been pushed
more rapidly. Capt. Wheeler is working a
large force of convicts, able bodied, and a
healthier set of young criminals we never
saw. Capt. Wheeler seems to be a gentle
man in every particular, and is well spoken
of by the convicts on account of his humane

WuLson's, Sep. 10.-The past week has
been a moist one, which put a partial in
junction on cotton ingathering, the the rain
was very much needed for other crops and

Some are elected, and some got left at home
to try their luck again two years hence (if
living.) Now our nominees are chosen,
good men and true, let us see that they be
elected in November.

day we-inspected Mr. J. A. Sprott's large
stock. It is comp~rlete. Jordan seznms to be
on a genuine boom.
Mr. Editor, please don't let our senator
and representatives forget that dog law.
By the way, how would it do to give the
dog tax to the free schools, and empower
the trustees in each district to levy and col
lect the tax, and report to school commis
sioner. Our trustees are all good honest
men, and would make good use of such
funds. We have had much law making on
this subject but none effective.
We would like to get your ideas, Mr. Ed
itor, and of your corresponaents. Let the
matter be ventilated. You city folks are
not so mneh annoyed by vagrant theiving
suck egg curs, as we country p'eople are.
