S. A. NETTLES, Editor.
WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 30,1889.
A postage stamp is a very small af
fair, but the announcement that the
New York postoffice alone sold thir
teen tons of them last year, shows
how many trifles can make big results.
It is interesting to note that while
Harrison gets 233 electoral votes
against Cleveland's 168, the popular
vote for the Democratic candidate
was 5,534,867, against 5,436,687 for
his successful antagonist.
It is well enough for all guardians,
executors, administrators and trustees
to remember that January and
February are the months in
which they are required to make an
anual return of their acts and doings
for the last year to the Probate Judge.
Marriage is not a failure in Texas,
for by the report of the State commis
sioner of statistics for the past year it
is shown that there were 61,623 births
in that State of whom 102677 were
colored, 875 white pairs of twins and
199 colored, 15 s ts of white triplets
and 4 colored.
A bill has been introduced in the
North Carolina Legislature to amend
the election law. The proposed amend
ments are copies of the South Caro
lina election law, and it is thought if
the bill is passed it will cut off at least
half the negro vote, but as to the
white vote it will hurt the Democrats
more than the Republicans.
The immig-ation that has poured
into Southern and Western Florida
bas made it a white man's land,
wealthy and prosperous. While the
10,200 negroes south of St. Augustine
had grown from 1870 to 1880 to 16,
900, the 17,300 whites had grown to
45,900, and are nearly 70,000 to-day.
In that section of the State the races
'were nearly equal eighteen years ago;
the whites are four to one to-day, and
in a number of the counties the negro
population has actually decreased.
The Rev. Dr. Burchard, whose three
"'a" at a crisis made him famous, is
staying at the same hotel in Washing
ton which shelters James G. Blaine.
This is not the first time since 1884
that Blaine and Burchard have lodged
beneath the same roof.. During Mr.
Blaie's -sojourn in Europe he was
more than once a fellow-guest with
urebard at hotels in England and on
the Continent. There is something
weird and grotesque about the fate
which throws these men together.
The full text of the last State pen
ion law, embracing more than two
columns, was published two weeks
ago in the Tnas, on the first Page,
We publish elsewhere a few notes

ications, will find a large crowd of
Confederate veterans in the county
courthouse, ready to do what t.hey
can for the -advancezmert of the inter

State cannot do all it would like to
help these old heroes, but to the ex
tent of $50,000 it proposes to
help them. The pension eaminin

about thirty applications, largely
males, have been received up to date.
After all the applications have been
eeived, the board will pass on them,
apr'igor .disapproving as their
jugent directs. It would be well
for all who desire to apply for a pen
.aion to do so at once.
'Da The Formation of t'iorence County.
Ema~onnm:-Iwas rather sur
gsisd at the reception of your letter,
somplaining about the formation of
the new county of Florence, when I
semember that you were one of the
eenvassers who carried around for
signatures one of the petitions for its
formation, and your announcement as
a candidate for coroner of the new
.gounty at the time of such canvass.
Why you are now in "sack cloth and
ashes" sabou~t it I cannot see for the
life of me. -Perhaps I can conjecture
your discomfiture since I've learned
tbe resulta of the recent nominating
convention held at Florence. You
seem to have been one of the left and
unwanown. No doubt your name went
aoightily against you. I tender you
my moat profound sympathy, for I
have been along all those old paths.
I ean tell you, Nick, this office hunt
ing business is a very ticklish thing,
and -er trying to one's nerves. But
it wilR no good now to kiok u a
dust-about it, you signed the petitPon
fo;r the formation of the new county
with the county seat at thetowntof Flor
es~ce, and I don't think it the clean
thing inyou to try to go back on it
nour:. Remember that all you fellows
can't have office, there aint enough to
go round. May be in the long future
ours aun ma.) come, and your ser
icsadunselfish patriotism will be
rare.I would suggest that in
th~e meantime you get a spelling and
writing book, and practice some, as
th~e reading and writing affairs of your
i ine might bother you right smartly.
I-owever. when the new Cou-t House
is Esished, you might get the posi
tjte of janitor; that office won't tax
y our brains much, and requires but
Ijt tt intellectual qualifications. You
,vy: "That the whole thing was cut
andi dried beforehand." Well, Nick,
yu- are a perfect specimen of stupid
2t fyou did not know such to
le~ in the natural course of events.
Now, this talk about "rings" is all
nonsense; it's a slander on the good
time cursing rings over here, and
what good did it do you? People
looked upon your tirades as very
harmless articulate sounds, coming
from one close kin to the mule's fath
er, and I hope this experience of yours
will prevent future sarcasm on your
You will recollect, dear Nick, that
at the time you were so busy canvass
ing you told us, "That we on this side
of the river were promised by the
Florentines that they were going to
build an iron truss bridge across the
river, that we may laugh at freshets,
with an acadamized road to Florence
'straight as the crow flies,"' but what
took the cake, unsophisticated Nick,
was, "That they would build the Court
House and jail at their own expense."
I know that "little ofice matter" dot
you, but that Court House and jail
boom got the taxpaying farmers. But,
"all is well that ends well," and I feel
assured that all these promises (if
made at all) will be kept in good
faith, notwithstanding the grumbling
of the "sore heads." Again, I am
satisfied the new county has bright
prospects ahead. She is in good finan
cial condition, and surely was not af
ter the "flesh pots of Egypt" when
she got the small portions of the
counties comprising her area (vide
the special committee's report to the
Legislature), she was after area, not
money. If the town of Florence
wanted the county seat I cannot con
ceive why she should not have it. She
offers more and better inducements
than her competitors. It matters not
whether it will benefit the land own
ers there. You are not envious of
their good fortune, are you? I'm not,
I only wish I had a few acres there,
hope to some day if I can persuade
Becky to move there; then you can
come and visit us. At such time we'll
kill a chicken and churn every pop.
So let's go ahead, pull together, and
try and make the new county all that
can be anticipated, with the town of
Florence the Atlanta of South Caro
lina. Yours truly,

ceiling. The building will also contain a
reception room, members' parlor, reading
room and library, a concert hall with a seat
ing capacity of 450 persons, and a gallery
seating 200 more. There will be on the
third floor small rooms for the use of the
educational classes, and a small parlor for
the use of the managers, &-c. A room for a

A Sketch of a Large and Prosperous Bus
iness Enterprise in Manning.
In the year 1877, baring some experience
in the mill business, Mr. W. Sc. tt Harvin
came to Manning, and began putting up a
grist mill and gin, which he intended
to operate on a small scale, but before the
work of building had been completed the
entire business was consumed by the torch
of an incendiary, whose crime yet remains
unpunished. Mr. Harvin then went to For
eston, much reduced financially, but with
hope, energy, and determination that has
stood the crucial test, he, there, in partner
ship with his brother, Mr. Charles R. Har
vin, conducted a lumber business until the
spring of 1879, at which time the firm remov
ed to .lanning. Here the partnership was
continued until the fall of that year, when
Mr. Charles R. Harvin withdrew, sold his
interest in the business to his partner, and
became a stockholder in the Foreston and
Manning Tram Road Co.
Since the year 1l'79 Mr. W. Scott Harvin
has continued in the mill business at Man
ning, and has been alone. Besides his grist
mill he has also run his saw mill most of
the time, and for several years did a small
business in lumber, supplying only a part
of the local demand. About the year 1883 he
moved the lumber mill across Ox Swamp,
about two miles from town, and sold it to
his brother, Mr. C. R. Harvin, who ran the
business several years at that point, bat un
der most disadvantageous circumstances. In
fact the hand of misfortune seemed upon
him, for during these two or three years he
was twice burnt out, losing almost everything
destructible by fire, and neither time hav
ing a cent insurance. Notwithstanding all
these backsets and business calamities, Mr.
C. R. Harvin is of that peculiar tempera
ment that he became not at all discouraged;
in fact the way he bore himself in these
hours of financial trial seemed to inspire
confidence in those with whom he did busi
ness; and it was but a short time before he
commenced work in the same line, but on
a considerably enlarged basis, about five
miles above town. Here he continued until
a few weeks ago, when the preseat new firm
was entered into. During the past few years
he did a large business, tramming the lumber
frou his mill across Black itiver to the
Central Railroad at Dudleys.
When Mr. W. Scott Harvin sold his mill
over Ox Swamp, he increased the capacity
of his gins, bought a planer, and added
other important machinery to his business
in town. Since that time, and from year to
year, the gins have been materially im
proved, and is now, it is believed, consid
ering capacity and quality of work done,
second to none in the State. For several
years past he has run three gins, and with
the present facilities, thirty bales is an or
dinary day's ginning, and during the past
season an average of twenty-nine bales was
made for three weeks in succession.
In the year 1884, when our town was laid
waste by fire, Mr. W. Scott Harvin was one
of the first to see the need of the hour, and
ordered a brick machine with which he
made brick to supply the demands of our
merchants. Nor was it done in a spirit of
personal aggrandizement, for the brick were
sold at most reasonable prices, and all of
our t.erchants who rebuilt used them. Mr.
Harvin now has on hand probably 300,000
brick that he is still selling at about 25 per
cent. less than the usual prce. This is only
one of many things he has done that have
gained him popularity, and to-day he is re
garded as one of the most public spirited
young men of our town.
During the past seven years Mr. W. Sc ott
Harvin has also acted as local
salesman for machinery manufacturers, and
has handled a large quantity of all kinds
of machinery. The first year his sales
were small, but they have gradually and
steadily increased, and without any special
efforts on his part, except to do what he ob
ligates to do, and to ask and expect the same
from those with whom he deals. Such a
course is popular with business men, and
it has proven so in this instance. Mr. Har
vin's sales though only a few hundred dol
lars the first year, now average from fiye to
ten thousand a year. In the whole time,
and with this extensive run of business, he
has never failed to collect anything in this
line, except one small bill of about three
hundred dollars. This is something re
mark-able, and is evidence of extraordinary
business tact and judgment.
The foregoing is but a brief and hurried
sketch of the business career, during the
past few yea~rs, of the two members of the
new firm that is now operating the large
lumber business in Manning.
They are running two large mills with a
daily capacity of about twenty thousand feet
of lumber. Their tram road is already
completed about three miles into one of the
finest timbered sections in the county, and
is being rapidly built. The whistle of the
tram engine as it comes in with timber adds
new life to our town. The section of coun
try entered will afford timber to run the mills
at this point for about six years at their pres
Some delay in starting was caused by not
getting some parts of the machinery that
were to have been sent in earlier, but the
business is now running, and in a day or so
more, it will be worth the while of the curi
ous to go down and see what Harvin & Bro.
A WOMAN'S DISCOVERY.
"Another wonderful discovery has been
made and that too by a lady in this county.
Disease fastened its clutches upon her and
for seven years she withstood its severest
tests, but her vital organs were undermin

months she coughed incessantly and could
not sleep. She bought of us a bottle of Dr.
King's New Discovery for Consumption
and was so much relieved on taking first
dose that she slept all night and with one
bottle has been miraculously cured. Her

were others present who rushed to his as

aehold the ghastly spectacle before them. It
must have been a terrible shock to all pres

Nervous Dyspepsia is a com
paratively new disease, growing
out of the conditions of modem
life. It is a joint affection of
the digestive organs and of the
nervous system. These two
were formerly treated as sepa
rate ailments, and it was left
for the clear-si ghted Shakers
to prove that the basis of this
terrible and often fatal compli
cation lies chiefly in the disord
ered and depraved functions of
digestion and nutrition. They
reasoned thus:-"If we can in
duce the stomach to do its
work, and stimulate the excre
tive organs to drive out of the
body the poisonous waste mat
ters which remain after the.life
giving elements of the food
have been absorbed, we shall
have conquered Nervous Dys
pepsia and. Nervous Exhaust
ion. And they were right.
Knowing the infallible power
of Shakcr E .tract (Seigel's
Syrup) in less complicated
though s i m il a r diseases,
they resolved to test it fully
in this. To leave no ground
for doubt they prescribed the
remedy in hundreds of cases
which had been pronounced in
curable-with perfect success
in every instance where their
directions as to living and diet
were scrupulously followed.

And for the Democracy.
THE SUNs believes that the campaign for
the election of a Demoeratic Congress in
19 nd a Democratic. Prssidant in~ Tfoo
should begin on or about the fourth of nex t
March. THE ScN will be on hand at the
beginning and until the end of the most
interesting and important political conflict
since the war, doing its honest utmost, as
ever, to secure the triumph of the Democrat
ic party and the permanent supremacy of
the principles held by Jefferson, Jackson,
The great fact of the year is the return to
absolute power of the common enemy of all
good Democrats-the political organization
toi- whose overthrow THE SuN fought at the
front for fifteen years, the memorable years
of Grant and the Fraud Hayes, and Garfield
It is the same old enemy that Democrats
now confront, and he will be irttrenched in
the same strong position. It has been car
ried once by brave and hopeful fighting.
Do you not believe with TEE SuN that the
thing can be done again? Wait and see!
The hope of the Democracy is in the
loyal efforts of a united press, cherishing
no memories of past differences ini non-es
sentiale, forgetting everything but the les
sons of experience, and~that victory is a
Probably you know THE SuN already as a

ed anywhere on earth; and which sells its
opinions only to its subscribers and par
chasers at two cents a copy-on Sundays

it is to be in the sunshine.

educated South is DEMdOCRATIC and
wants an honest Government; because DuN
PIATT, the Editor, is aggressively inde
pendent and a tiue patr~ot of a united
country; because its policy is that of all
honest and educated persons: FREE
TR ADE, less governmental interference in
personal matters, and good wholesome tic

SOUThiERN WRtITERIS to its pages, e. .
the best literary produetion by an American
writer since the war is GLD MAN GILBERT,
