WEDNESDAY, October 3,1888.
The fall of the year has arrived.
The crests of the forests are ripening
into "the sear, the yellow leaf;" the
sprays of the plains are reddening
with the tints of shivering sheaves.
The fields that were green and beau
tiful but yesterday are fleecy and fros
ty to-day; to-morrow they'll be black
ened by the hand of the harvesting
reaper. Winter is almost upon us,
and not a house in the land but will
have to be supplied with some neces
sary article of merchandise. The
manager of our advertising depart
ment has exerted himself in procuring
the advertisements of the most relia
ble mercantile establishments of ad
joining towns and cities, as well as
those at home, and in our columns
you may read what they have to say.
Think of what you need and expect
to buy, examine our columns and se
lect the house you wish to deal with,
and if you cannot visit the stores
yourselves, send your orders, and you
will be promptly supplied with the
goods you need, or send for samples
fom which you can make your selec
tions. No doubt you have often ask
ed why so many merchants advertise
in the MamuNG Tnms? We answer,
because nearly everybody subscribes
toit, "Well, why do so many take it?"
Because it gives the news. Then do
you want the news? if so, subscribe
at once to the MAnuSG Tms. But
you say, "I already subscribe to it."
Then get twelve of your friends to
do so, and we will present you with a
brand new $12 dictionary; or for
twenty-five subscribers, with one of
the best and most beautiful sewing
manen on the market.
When a man walks into our office,
with a long piece of manuscript in
his hand, and vengeance in his eye,
with the broad and loud assertion
that he has an article he wishes pub
lished, and intends to have it pub
limbed, and doesn't care what it costs,
and he wll send it to the News and
Cowier if we do not publish it, we
generally sine up that man at once,
as anxious, yes, very anxious, to get
his article published, but unwilling,
altogether unwilling, to pay for it.
In an experience of six years of jour
alsm, we have had a number of such
and always, invariably, with
thW-ohlowing result: We generally
ask thu gentleman to give us a hear
ing, and tehlhim that if he has any
thing to publish, unless it is immoral
in its character, that we will publish
it; thatif it is of public character,
and'such as we think will interest our
readers, we will publish for nothing
and with pleasure. But, if it is of a
personal nature and calculated spec
iafly to further the individual inter
esta of the gentleman, we will charge
him for it; and if it is more personal
in iisnature than we like, that we
wlfl charge him double rates. We
then read the article, tell the gentle
man what it will cost, ten, fiteen,
twenty, or twenty-five dollars, as the
ease may be. Anx expansion of eyes,
a fallen countenance, a look of con
tempt that we should have deigned
to charge for it, is the result.
The price was too much! He was not
wiling to pay that sum, although it
was such as we charge any
one for ordinary business. The gen
tieman after finding he cannot dead
head his article, seeks some other of
fice, where possibly he may find an
editor too timid to refuse so modest
a request but generally the article
never sees light through a newspaper.
We never yet have had to publish
any such articles and we are glad
By instructions of the executive
committee of~ the Republican party in
the State, Swails, Brayton, Miller, and
acme "sich" others of the G. 0. P.,
addressed, last week, a communica
tion to Gov.. Richardson, charging
that a free vote and honest count was
supresedand aking that one Re
publican manager of elections be -ap
pointed at each voting precinct.
Governor Richardson replied tha
our elections now, under the present
wise laws, were quite in contrast to
the evil and corrupt practices, once
so dominant in this State, and of the
disgraceful scenes and unscrupulous
manipulations of Radical elections.
Now every man quietly anid freely
casts his ballot, in peace and without
fear. Therefore he does not think it
proper to take the management, whol
ly or in part, of our elections from
the hands of good and true men, and
give itinto the hands of a class that
in intelligence are vastly inferior; es
pecia~y, too, since in this State there
is a Republican party, only in name.
Governor Richardson's reply was
good and timely.
By an unintentional oversight we
omitted to mention last week that our
talented young friend, Mr. J. Harry
Lesesne, has retired from the editori
al chair, on the Enterprise. He will
devote his time specially to the study
The Republicans had a large politi
cal meeting in Sumter last Saturday.
They will make a desperate effort to
capture the 7th district this year, but
the better element of the white and
colored citizens of that district are so
well pleased with the able and impar
tial manner in which Col. Elliott serves
them in Congress, that they will send
him back, with a bigger majority
The delegates to the judicial con
vention leave for Georgetown to
morrow. We hope that body will
make a nomination before adjourning.
Men are sent there to act for the peo
ple, and the people demand a nomi
nation at the hands of this convention.
Will the delegates sit there, and bal
lot like dummies for the interest of
their individual preferences and to
the irreparable injury of the Demo
cratic party? or will they rise in their
wisdom above self and friends, and
for the good of the whole State either
nominate one of the threo* candidates
(any one of whom would make a good
solicitor), or select some outside man
worthy of being sought for the posi
tion? Let us wait and see.

Gentlemen: Inclosed please find
an order for six bottles of your most
valuable medicine. And in sending
this order let me tell you why I
do so. Seven years ago I contracted
an exceedingly bad case of blood poi
son. I tried a physician, the best at
command, but secured no benefit.
My throat began to get sore, and my
body covered with sores and ulcers.
Going from bad to worse, I felt that
my grave must be reached in the
near future. I gave up the doctors
treatment and with a despairing hope
I commenced taking your medicine.
I began to improve from the first bot
tie, and in a short time the ulcers
healed and my skin cleared off and
was entirely well. One year ago a
case of catarrh developed in my sys
tem. The. physician done his best,
but could not cure me; but two bot
tles of Swift's Specific gave me per
Treatise on Blood and Skin Dis
eases mailed free.
