a fine mule killed by being snagged in the
woods; later another mule died of the colic;
and last Thursday morning he found, when
he went to his stable, his finest horse dead

Tillie Wolkoviskie, secretary.
Several of our Summerton subscriber
complain to us that it is very diffcult to
get their mail from that office. It opens at
10 o'clock, and closes at 3 o'clock. Th'is, in
our judgment, is a very poor arrangement,
and we respectfully suggest to the post
offce departmient that from 8 to 6, with one
or two hours' noon, would be better hours.
Summerton is an important post offce, and
ought to be more accommodating.
We have bad numerous complaints of
late about not getting the TioEs on time,
and some complaints about not getting it
at all. Although Foreston is distant only
nine miles. yet for the last three weeks
there has been a delay of from fourteen to
forty-eight hours, last week the paper
reaching that place forty-eight hours late.
The fault is not in the Tnous office, or in
the Manning post office. In this last case,
it was the fanit of the railroad mail agent.
The matte has been reported to Washkng
ton, and it is -hoped there will-be a change.

- TheTwo Shows.
Teuulquiet of our streets was en
livened Monday afternoon by the appear
anee of three Turks(e) with tw large per
forming bears. The bears would dance,
and march. and turn summiersaults, and
wrestle, and box, and climb high trees,-all
of which afobrded great amusement to the
bystanders, and yielded a very fair reve
nue to the shiowmen. While trhe bear show
was in full blast a gang of convicts marched
up, and stopped near by. These convicts
were chained together, and were regarded
with almost as much curiosity as we~re the
bears. They were on their way back to the
penitentiary, and had been at work on the
new railroad, near Panola. The gradirg of
that road is nearly done, and it will not be
many months befora trains will be run

A Good Cotton Market.
Manning is one of the best cotton mar
kets in the State, and the people are fast
finding it out. Cotton from other coun
ties are brought to this market, and one
day last week we saw three wagons loaded
with cotton from Williamsburg. We were
shown, a few days ago, the sa'les of three
bales of cotton shipped to Charleston by a
farmer of this county, because he thought
the price offered him here was not enough.
He got in Charleston one cent a pound less
than offered him here, and the three bales
lost 114 pounds in weight, the farmer real
izing just $38.08 less on his cotton than if
he had sold in Manning. Another farmer
tells us that he shippe two bales to Charles
ton, and got less than a cent there than
offered in this place, and besides lost 145
pounds on the two bales. In all he got
$31.86 less by shipping his two bales to
Charleston tban if he had sold in this place.
Will find relief from their Costiveness,
Swimming in the Head. Colic, Sour Stom
ach, Headache, Kidney troubles, etc., by
taking a dose of Simmons Liver Regulator
after dinner or supper, so as to move the
bowels once a day. Mothers will have bet
ter health and the babies will grow more
robust by using the Regulator. If an in
fant shows signs of Colic, nothing like a
few drops in water for relief. The Genu

Samuel Edward Cenjers.
Capt. S. E. Conyers, of Foreston, died last
Sunday morning, and was buried the fol
lowing day, at the Foreston cemetery. with
Masonic honors. He had been sick for
about a month, and during that time suffer
ed a great deal. Capt. Conyers was a na
tive of this county, and about fifty-seven
years or age. He was a brave officer in the
Confederate war, commanding, we think,
a Florida company. He was a genial
whole-souled man, a favorite in every circle.

session till Saturday afternoon. The fol

Gen. Marion's (rave.
The little paragraph published sometime
ago relative to the sad and neglected condi
tion of General Marion's grave has gone
forth far and wide, and may yet result in
building a monument to his memory. The
following letter has the right ring in it.
The sentiment is beautiful. We well re
member how as a boy we loved to hear of
the brave and daring deeds of these Revo
lutionary heroes, and it would be a happy
action for the boys and girls all over the
United States, by means of their dimes and
nickles, to erect a stately statue to his mem
orv. We wish Mr. Loomis success in his
effort. We think we can safely assert that
there would be no objection to any such

Editor Mixso Trams, Manning, S. C.
Mr DLA SIB:-Recently I saw a short ar
ticle in a newspaper concerning the grave
of Gen. Francis Marion. I saw the article
was credited to the M3ssiso Tins. The
article to which I refer stated, if I remem
ber correctly, that no stone at the present
time, marked his grave.
I believe there was no officer of the Revo
lution whose life and public services appeal
so strongly to the heart of the average Amer
ican boy as the life and services of General
Will you have the kindness to write me
just the condition of his grave? I want to
bring the matter before the children of Chi
cago, and if a monument is needed I would
like to see one erected by the children.
I may fail in getting the necessary per
mission to do this, but I hope not. As a
starting point I want to know all about the
condition of the grave, and if I fail it will
not be my fault I assure you.

Rev. T. P. Burgess's Resignation.
SUMMnTo, S. C., Oct. 25.-MB. EDITOR:
-In the last issue of the TiMas you state
that R1ev. T. P. Burgess has resigned the
pastoral charge of Ebenezer Church, Charles
ton, in consequence of the severe criti
cisms upon his vote in Presbytery, by a
number of its prominent memb~ers. This
is a mistake, as you will see by the inclosed
letter to the offcers and members of his
church. Not an officer of his church signed
Please do him the justice to publish the
enclosed letter rerbatim in connection with
this note in your next issue, and oblige,
yours, &c. B.
To the Offiers and Members of the Eben
ezer Presbyterian Church-Dear Bretheren:
You all are doubtless aware of the criticisms
made.by Mr. A. R. Stillman, and others,
upon the recent action of Charleston Pres
bytery in regard to the adjudication of Dr.
Woodrow's case by the General Assembly.
Said criticisms took the form of a letter ad
dressed to the Rev. J. Rt. Dow, stated clerk
of the Presbytery, and was forwarded to
him during the sessions of Synod at Green
wood, S. C. Said letter was also simul
taneously published in the Ketos and Coutr
As I was an humble member of Charleston
Presbytery, and as I acted conscientiously,
and as I h'ave not yet repented of my part
in theobjectionabie action, I now tender
you my resignation as pastor of this church.
I do so because those who signed the let
ter above referred to compose a majority_ of
the board of city missions, which sustains
this work. Acting upon er. parte state
ments, they have condemned me in my
absene, and without a hearing, and have
attributed to me views which I not only re
pudiate, but which are abhorrent to every
I feel happy that none of my own officers
sgned the letter referred to.
With sincere sorrow that the ties which
have bound us so pleasantly together
should be so rudely broken, "I commend
you to God and the~Word of His grace," and
hope that, you will unite with me in request
ing Charleston Presbytery at as early a day
as possible to dissolve the pastoral relation
existing between us.
Yours fraternally, T. P. Bunass.
