THE MANNING TIES.
Mamizg, 5i. C:
S. A. NETTLES, Editor.
WEDNESDAY, November 14, 1888.
There is no longer any doubt that
the-Democrats have been beaten, and
badly beaten. Not only have the Re
publicans by a very large majority
elected a president, but they have
both houses of congress, and we will
for the next two years at least be en
tirely in their hands. We hope and
believe, however, that Harrison will
rise above the petty meanness of some
of his predecessors, and make a presi
ilent of and for the whole people.
Mr. David Lee, of Salem, was in
town last Monday, and says that the
voting in Salem last week was un
usually small. He attributes this fact
to-he dissatisfaction which a good
many people in that section felt over
the management and result of the re
cent primaries. He claims, as noted
in the Tncs two moiths ago, that
fraud was practiced, and he says he
is going to show it up. If fraud was
practiced it should be shown up.
Our polities, and above LR odr prma
ry elections, should be free, fair, and
We published an account last week
of an unfortunate difficulty in Sumter
between Col. Earle and Mr. H. R
Thomas. Mr. Thomas is out in the
papers, in a long card, denouncing
Col. Earle's conduct in exceedingly se
vere terms. Mr. Thomas's version of
the difficulty is largely different from
that we published (which was copied
from the Columbia Register), and if
true places Col Earle in an exceeding
ly uncomfortable position. But know
ing Col. Earle, personally and by rep
utation, we think there must be some
mistake in Mr. Thomas's statement.
We cannot believe that Col. Earle
would assault (as Mr. Thomas says) a
-mian with a billet of wood, while that
man had his back turned to him.
Sumter is competing with the whole
ef Edgefleld eounty.
The election in this county resulted
Cleveland, 1,452; Harrison, 331.
G. W. Dargan, for congress, 1,318.
The State and county officers received
from 1,084to 1,097 votes. J. S. Wil
-son, for solicitor, 1,000.
On the constitutional amendments
the votes stood: For increasing the
judge of probate's term of office to
four years, yes, 396; no, 585. For
abolishing the school commissioner's
wee, yes 424; no 596.
As Will be seen the voting was very
small. There was a small opposition
to the presidential ticket, but many
of the negroes who did vote, voted
for Cleveland. Congreman Dargan,
_Solicitor Wilson, and the State and
isounty offcers had no opposition.

The alarming disease of this
country is nervous debility and
prostration. . It goes under
many names but it is essen
tially the same complaint.
Hospitals and private institu
tions for nervous patients are
crowded. The average of life
in the United States is de
creasing every year. Sudden
deaths from nervous collapse
among our business, profess
ional and public men are so
frequent as scarcely to excite
remark. The majority of sui
cides, committed without ap
parent reason, or underso-called
"depression of spirits," are
really prompted by nervous
prostration, which is a fruitful
source of insanity and crime
with all their grief and horror.
These facts are startling.
They threaten the very life of
the nation. They assail the
springs of its power and pros
perity. They wreck manhood's
strength and woman's useful
ness and beauty.
Every one should know the
causes. What are they ? The
answer is easy and terribly
plain: Our vicious personal
habits; our careless and l awless
eating and drinking; the in
tense mental and physical strain
arising from our mad race after
money, position and infuence;
the fears and struggles of pov
erty; the use of narcotics and
stimulants; our fashion of
turning day into night and
night into day; and, briefly,
our, desperate willingness to
pay any price for an hour's
pleasure or succoss. - So we
burn life's candle at both ends
and fill the lunatic asylums
and the raveyards.
The disease from which we
suffer and die is, in plain Ens
lish, Nerous Lyspepsia, as it
is seated in the Nerves and in
the organs of Digestion, Assim
ilation and Nutrition. Healthy
digestion being impeded or des
troyed, the whole y, nerves
included, is literaly starved;
even when there is no emaci
ation to tell the sad story.
Nervous prostration sends
out its warnings :-headachie
in the morning; a persistent
dull heaviness or achmng at the
base of the brain; waketuiless;
]oss of appetite and disgustwith
food; loss of mental energy and
interest in ordinary duties and
business; restlessness and anx
iety without any assignable
breath; foul mucous on the
teeth; occasional giddiness;
palpitation of the heart; sal
lowness of the skin; coated
tongue and gradual failur~e of
strength and ambition.
The remedy is a total aban
onment of the habits and cus
toms which cause the disease
in each individual case, and the
ase of ShaJker Extract of Roots
(Seiger's Syrup) to cure the
mschief already done. -This
great remedy, prepared by the
Shaker Community of Mt. Leb-.
