THE MANNING TIES.
S. A. NETTLES, Editor.
WEDIESDAY, MARCH 13, 1889.
It is estimated, at the present rate
of increase, both natural and by emi
gration, that by the time the next
census is taken, which will be in July,
1890, the population of the United
Sttes will be about 67,000,000 souls.
A bill has been introduced in the
parliament of Canada, to provide for
the annexation of the New England
States, provided it can be done in a
p ale manner. It is said that
the object of its introduction is to
show the United States government
that Canada regards such proposals
as that of Congressman Butterworth,
for the purchase of Canada, in the
light of an insult.
The News and Courier some time
ago offered eight cash prizes, amount
ig to $50, to the school children of
Charleston for original stories, to be
equally divided among the white and
colored children. The names of the
winners were announced last Sunday,
and the prize stories will be published
soon: the four stories of the white
children next Sunday; and the four
stories of the colored children the fol
The North Carolina legislature has
passed a bill to pension ex-Confeder
ate soldiers from that State. It im
poes a tax of 4 cents on $100 valua
tion of property, and 12 cents on the
p and will yield $105,000. There
no opposition to the bill. The pen
sions are on a scale according to the
extent of the disability. Widows of
poldiers killed in action, or who died
of wounds or of disease contracted
while in service, will receive $25 an
Only a few shad have so far been
brought to this market, and these were
small. Great complaint is made
sgainst the Georgetown fishermen,
who, it is claimed, keep their nets in
the river not less than seven days in
the week, although the law says only
three days can be used for this pur
pose. The fish are thus all stopped at
Georgetown, and will result in a total
destruction of our future supply of
shad. This open and flagrant viola
jigaof a State law ought to be stop.
&The shad are daily shipped North,
Just before the close of the last
Congress, a resolution was passed
making the salary of the President's
private secretary $6,000 a year, in
-tead of $4,500 as heretofore. Another
resolution was then passed to pay
Daniel Lamont, Cleveland's private
secretary, a gratuity of $6,000, "back
pay." This Lamont refused for the
reason that when he accepted the of
fice he took it with full knowledge of
its remuneration, and he was not
therefore entitledto more. We shall
mot see any such conscientious hon
esty for the next four years from Re
publican office holders.
An exchange says when Bishop
Heber's famous missionary hymn,
'From Greenland's Icy Mountains,
which he wrote in 1824, when in Cey
Ion, first reached this country a lady
in Charleston was much impressedi
with it, and was particularly anxious
to find a tune suited to it. She ran
alcked her music in vain, and then
chancing to remember that in a bank
down the street was a young clerk
arbo had considerable reputation as a
iusical genius, she sent her son with
the hymn to the clerk with the re
guet that he write atune to fit it. In
pust half an hour the boy came back
with the hymn, and the melody thus
dashed off in hot haste is to-day sung
.li over the world, and is inseparably
cqnnected with the hymn. The young
e*rk was Lowel Mason.
The Chicago Hewas, an Independent
paper, says: "President Cleveland

party and respeced by his political
opponens ~itr will write him
down as one of the great Presidents
of the nation. -On most occasions he
has acted on the principle that it is
better to be right than to be popular.
Hehsdone what he conceived to be
his duty at the cost of much painful
labor, and has refused to leave cer

have gained largely in popularity by
so doing. A fearless, self-reliant man,

Cleveland is a man, every inch of
him, and he has a good, sound, level
head, full of hard common sense. He
acts as his judgment dictates. The
New York correspondent of the Phil
adelphia Ledggr says: "Ex-President
Cleveland's new address is 45 William
street, which is within a block of
Wall street. The name, 'Grover Cleve
land,' already appears on the glass
doom opening into the offices of
Sangs Stetson, Tracy, & MeVeagh, of
'which important law firm Mr. Cleve
land will zow be the most important
member. His name is painted on the
4ooi abovesil the other names. It is
believed that he will take up his law
work immediately. Most men, after
four years in the White House, would
be glad to take a vacation, but Mr.
Cleveland seems to love work better
than pa~y, and will, Mr. Stetson thinks,
settle down to his law practice in a
few days. A suite of fine rooms ini
the Hotel Victoria will be the tempo
uary' hgme of Mz. and Mrs. Cleveland

his work, and is in his office every
The Washington correspondent of
the Chicago News says: "Gen. Har
rison has not permitted the excitement
by which he is surrounded to inter
fere with his life-long custom of com
mencing the day by asking the bless
ing and guidance of the Almighty.
Every morning before sitting down to
breakfast the family-the General and
his wife, Russell Harrison and his
wife, Mr. McKee and his wife-and
those who are with them, assemble in
the parlor, where the General reads a
passage of Scripture and kneels in
prayer. In speaking of this custom
Mrs. McKee said yesterday: 'I don't
think we have commenced a day with
out family worship since I can re
member, no matter what has happen
ed. Papa thinks it quite as important
as his breakfast, and would not be
able to do anything unless he had
prayers first. Of course he will con
tinue the same customs in the White
House. Now he is President he thinks
it ever so much more important than
before.' The Bible the General uses
in his family devotions is the same
that he always carries with him when
he travels, the same he carried all
through the war, and the same that
was used when he took the oath of
THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
School Commissioner Wells's Views on
the Public Schools--Suggestions for
In accordance with my sense of
duty and the requirements of the laws
of the State, I have, as School Com
missioner of Clarendon county, visit
ed officially nearly every free school
under my jurisdiction, and made close
personal observation into the manner
of conducting the same, the methods
of management, and the books used
by the pupils attending the schools.
The teachers appear to be earnest
and active, ai'd the new series of
books adopted by the board have been
found in very general use, only here
and there an exception to the con
trary; while there is good ground for
expectation that ere long these books
will be handled exclusively. No effort
has been spared to impress both
patrons and teachers with the- great
necessity of conforming to a require
ment so beneficial in its results.
By a careful survey of the field, the
undersigned is convinced that very
great improvement could be effected
through changes in the existing order
of affairs. First, the school districts
are too large, for the trustees to give
that thorough supervision of the ter
ritory under their charge so requisite
to the well-being of the schools. They
receive no compensation whatever; are
often called from home and cannot
give the proper oversight to any re
mote points, except at very considera
ble sacrifice to themselves. Nor is
the legitimate duties devolving upon
them the only load they have to bear.
Consequent to them are many ills
nd unpleasantness from factional dis
ord and disagreement, where it is
often impossible to adjust matters
without offence to one side or the
The remedy, at least a very great
alleviation, would seem to lie in a re
duction of the work, by a redistrict
ing of the county. To make each
township a school district would doub
le the number of trustees and reduce
by one-half the labor of each. Re
eiving no pay, it would cost nothing
to effect this change, and the scope so
reduced would, as it were, place the
schools directly under the eyes of
those accountable for their successful
management. The wants of each vi-'
cnty could be better understood;
school houses built and schools estab
lished where the public money ex
pended would to the best advantage
subserve the public need. Along this
line the greatest requirement, and by
far the most important, is the method
through which our people may be
aroused to the consequence of allow
-g the school interest through apathy
and indifference to weaken and decay.
From different quarters the hue and
cry has been raised against the free
school system. We are free to admit
that connected therewith are defects,
but of such a character as readily to
be remedied. No one who has given
the matter the proper thought could
desire to throw any obstacles in the
way of these schools when it is called
to mind that education is the pallad
ium of a people's liberty, and that
there is no slavery so galling as the
bondage in which ignorance enchns
the mind. To such as find themselves
in a condition to fully eutivate the
intellect of their children, the free
schools may appear a farce. But what
of the hundreds and thousands who
have but this light, faint though it be,
to light them in their escape from the
fearful thraldom of illiteracy which
without the benign effects of these
schools would have been much more
Let the poor boy have the chance,
slim as it is, and ambition may be
aroused that will not down at the bid
ding of untoward circumstances, and
if the girl never progresses beyond
the point of being able to read her
Bible to her children in after life, who
will attempt to say that the school
was a farce, and the money thrown
away. Let teachers, patrons, trus
tees and pupils all put their shoulders
to the wheel, and aid the cause of
free school education in every way.
Let every effort be put forth to sup
ply the necessary books, and then
keep the children punctually at the
school. It may be hard, and often
times is, to spare the boy from the
farm, but let no trivial demand come
between him and the only chance he
may ever have perhaps to improve his
mind; an opportunity that is soon
gone, and once gone can never be re

I would especially commend the zeal
and earnestness of the teachers, and

friends all over the county.

Rev J. S. Porter in writing to the
Advocate has this, among other things,
to say of the Foreston circuit:
"Our congregations generally are
quite large and seem to listen to the
Word proclaimed with great earnest
ness. Our members are co-operative
and are ready to do any and all things
for the good of the cause, and have
laid us under great obligations to do
our best for them, not only because
of their help in church matters but
also in their temporal gifts. Often
when we enter our buggy to leave
the church and their homes do we
find such things as butter, ham, eggs,
rice and chickens among other good
things placed there by kind hands for
the preacher and his loved ones at
home. And on last Saturday our
Jordan membership drew our hearts
nearer to them by the many nice things
that they sent to the parsonage by
one of their zealous stewards, Broth
er W. T. Sprott. We feel more grate
ful than we can express, not only for
the variety and number of good things
-even to toilet articles-which they
gave, but also for the good will and
love for their pastor. May God bless
all of these kind people in their hearts,
families, and fields, and make us wor
thy recipients of their thoughtfulness

prize. If he does not win he will give some
body a close second. The other gentleman

years past made crops that were truly as
tounding. His name is W. B. R. Gasque.

What is this Disease that is Coming
Like a thief at night it steals
in upon us unawares. The pa
tients have pains about the
chest and sides, and sometimes
in the back. They feel dull
and sleepy; the mouth has a
bad taste, especially in the
morning. A sort of sticky slime
collects about the teeth. The
appetite is poor. There is a
feeing like a heavy load on the
stomach; sometimes a faint, all
gone sensation at the pit of the
stomach which food does not
satisfy. The eyes, are sunken,.
the hands and feet become cold
and clammy. After a while a
cough sets in, at first dry, but
after a few months it is attend
ed with a greenish-colored ex
pectoration. The patient feels
tired all the while, and sleep
does not seem to afford any
rest. After a time he becomes
nervous, irritable and gloomy,
and has evil forebodings. There
is a giddiness, a sort of whirl
ing sensation in the head when
rising up suddenly. The bow
els become costive; the skin is
dry and hot at times; the blood
becomes thick and stagnant;
the whites of the eyes become
tinged with yellow; the urine
is scanty and high colored, de
positing a sediment after stand
ing. There is frequently a
spitting up of the food, some
times with a sour taste and
sometimes with a sweetish
taste; this is frequently at
tended with palpitation of the
heart; the vision becomes im
paired, with spots before the
eyes; there is a feeling of great
prostration and weakness. All
of these symptoms are in turn
present. It is thought that
nearly one-third of our popu
lation has this disease in some
of its varied forms.
It has been found that phy
sicians have mistaken the cause
of this disease. Some have
treated it for a liver complaint,
others for kidney disease, etc.,
etc., but none of these kinds of
treatment have been attended
with success; for it is really
constipation and dyspepsa. ' It
is also found that Shaker Ex
tract of Roots, or Mother Sei
gel's Curative Syrup, when
properly prepared will remove
this disease in all its stages.
Care must be taken, however,
to secure the genuine article.
