THE MANNING TIMES.
S. A. NETTLES, Editor.
WEIESDAY, AlmL I, 1889,
A Washington correspondent says
that Mrs. Harrison has discharged ev
ery negro employed in the White
House, and has filled their places
with white domestics. Mrs. Cleveland
employed a number of colored ser
vants. The negroes can't understand
why Mrs. Harrison has done this. It
simply shows how little use the North
era Republicans have for them; and
all the use the Southern Republicans
and scalawags have for them is their
vote. The native Southern white
man, the former slave owner, is the
best friend the colored man has, but
a colored man won't allow himself to
be convinced of this truth.
Elsewhere will be found a procla
mation that concerns every American
patriot in the Union. The last Tues
day in this month will be the one hun
dredth anniversary of the inaugura
tion of George Washington as presi
dent of the United States. It was a
great and glorious day to the people
of that time. Through and by means
of a long and dreary war they had
won independence for themselves and
for us. Their first ruler was about to
be inaugurated, and the people then
decreed that 'Lis ceremony should be
preceded with a service of prayer
and praise. It is meet and proper
that we, too, just one century after
that time, should in the same way be
gin and commemorate the day with
prayer and praise. Let every busi
ae house far and near observe the
day, and let every body go to church
and thank God for his great and
South Carolina is the only State in
the Union where it is impossible to
obtain a divorce. Once married, al
ways married, is the law. The New
York Herald last Sunday published
letters from many prominent persons
on the subject of divorce. Kate
Fields says a divorce law is a necessi
ty,. or else illegitimate children are
more abundant, and cites France as
an instance. Such then would be the
case in France with any law. But we
ature,. without fear of successful
contradiction, the assertion that with
her - white population there is in
South Carolina a smaller per
entage of illegitimate children
and fallen women, than in any other
State in the Union. Wonran's chas
tity and the sacredness of the marital
relation is, every where observed in
this State, and the slightest deviation.

*The scheme of annexing the sub
urbs to the city of New York, and in
that way miakina~ it the greatest city
in the-world, is again before the peo
ple. A bill is now before the Legis
latmre appointing a commission to
Bqgnire- into the practicability of the
scheme. The lerald, which is the
champion of annexation, says: "It is
a grand idea, and would make a mag
3ifeenit city of New .York, with an
area of 320 squars miles and a popu
lation of 3,000,000. The line would
begin. at Yonkers-or if necessary
wuld tale in Yonkers-take in the
town of Wptchester and~part of Pel
ham, which would include all the new
parks now outside the city jurisdic
*tion and the Bronx Park in West
- hester; thencoming down, including
Iwnter's Island, the line would em
**brace the towns ofiFlushing, Jamaica,
adright down to Rocka"way, follow
around and take in all of Kmngs
*County and Richmond. The advan
tages to the annexed territory would
be great. It would have the benefit
of an efficient police, fire, and health
seriice all under one head, the mayor
of the city. There' might be a little
increase in the- taxes at the beginning,
but the sincrease of population that
would soon -follow, the increased ac
tivity in buirding; and so on, would in
a short time reduce them, and thus
there would be a double gain to the
people of the outlying districts."

County Commissioner Horton's Reply to
Ex4'onmissioner Ctie and to Jake.
Mn. Enrron:--I must apologise for thus
intruding, for a second time, on your valua
ble space, in consequence of this much ado
There is but little doubt that the people
know the causeway and bridges over Black
River to be, perhaps, the worst place in the
county to keep in good order, on account of
location, muddy soil, and the proximity of
the R. R. em~bankment; the latter lying at
sonic points within a few feet tf this cause
way, and backing water. Add to the n'it
ural difficulties a month of rain, and you
will have an outline of the much talked of
"awful road." Those not chargcl with the
execution, tind many ways of relief; but
officials whose duties demand it fail. And
why? One advances theory-the latter must
work it out.
As fully suted in my last article, when
complaints reached me the matter was at
once looked after, and a large amount of
money saved to the county, by a few days'
delay. The short obstruction to travel was
one of those incideatal mishaps that fre
quently :rise; but no more serious than
tearing up a bridge for repairs. What would
we think of people demanding a road cut
around, at heavy cost? The cases are ex
When the murmur of discontent was
wafted arcund, Mr. T. A. Way, like the tell
tale school boy, scented danger ahead, and
was ready to say "I didn't do it." "Verily
the wicked flee when no man pursues," says
. None of us wish to pay heavy taxes, and
my effort to economize will hardly disturb
my prospects; or bring on the nightmare,
Iwhich seems to afflict and affright some of
your recent correspondents in their dreams
of the future. I may or may not become a
candidate, yet, all the same, my political
horoscope has been placed on recor.i. At
all events, should defeat be in store for me,
no one will bow more willingly to the wishes
of the people. Judging from the shower of
Lilliputian arrows aimed at me, recently, I
must stand in some people's way. Especially
that nondescript correspondent, signing
himself "Jiake," and Mr. T. J. Cole. Silent
contempt would, perhaps. be the better reply
to such silly vaporings, but kst they grow
wise in their own conceit, I have decided to
sift them gently if it be possible to review
such a conglomeration of nonsense, ba:1
grammar and mirquotation. Take Jake up
for instance-he says: --You had a perfect
right as a public journalist to arraign and
criticise these county commissioners. One
horse had been severely crippled, then a mule
killed. They were getting too much tail to
their kite."~ Now which, the horse and mule
or the commissioners ? Evidently the former,
by all rules of grammar. Well nigh the en
tire epistle is composed of just such jargon.
Some few points we can see darkly, and
feel gratified that the "wounded bird" has
"fluttered," and the shaft gone home; for
the counsel given against the scandal of
self-praise appears to have been heeded;
and the horn, this time, blowed by "Jake."
But a betting man could go his last chip
with safety, that when that sweet ointment
was poured on the name and works of T.
Adams, his shadow, like Mary's little la n'b,
was lying by the door. 'Tis strange, passing
strange, that Tom, the facile Tom, who has
ever been so ready to commit himself to the
printed page, in this juncture should turn
himself over to the protection of "Jake."
'Tis funny to hear him philosophise and
tell me, that "independent thought is a
great and noble virtue," and that I lost my
argument by using "castic 1gua-Je." It is
a pity Mr. Editor you gave him those words;
for they are bound to be laid, on every oc
casion,-under contribution. A word more
to "Jake," and we leave him to gather fresh
er laurels for Commissioner Way. We ad -
jure him to throw away philosophy, cease
his weak attempts at ridicule, and, by all
means, never enter the field of criticism.
Many brig'hter lights than his have been ex
tinguished on this fatal shore. Stray no
longer out of your clement, "Jake," or like
the lost Pleiades you will be searched for,
but lost forever more, where no telescope
can ever reach you. Build pine knot fires,
Iand chant the praiises of Mr. Way around
them, but leave other persons to the dis
charge of their official duties.
Mycmlments, now, briefly to Mr. T.
J. Ceadthe disagreeable task forced
upon me shall have been ended. He chides
me ferocionsly, for having picted up, as he
claimed, "a cracker" to do muy writing. Al
low me to say here that it should have been
croaker, and was so designed. However,
cracker will do. It served the purpose suf
ficiently well to have friend Cole racing
around town hunting up some one to an
swer "that piece." He flings the accusation
Iat me of seeking help, when guilty of the
same thing himself. "Oh consistency, thou
art a jewel!" Whether my work, or that of
another, all of it stands over my signature
Mr. Cole in fixing my political destiny,
drew on the night-cap of prophesy, and has
prepared a place by his side for me, among
the defeated candidates. I regret that the
usually serene and equable Mr. C. should
have been drawn so far away from his boast
ed control over himself. Job once had Satan
'at his elbow, and was made to say some
foolish things for a perfect man. Perhaps
my friend had something similar to this,
wiile dropping those coals of fire, from his
suljhurous pen on my head. It is well to
findl sometimss, a coadjutor so willing and
so able to pump spleen and venom.
With these remarks, Mr. Editor, I shall
thank you for the opportunity afforded me
to defend myself; and conclude.
Yours, E. C. HonoxN.

DEAFNEsS CAN'T BE~ CURED
by local application, as they cannot reach
the diseased portion of the ear. There is
only one way to cure deafness, and that is
by constitutional remedies. Deafness is
caused by an inflamed condition of .the
mucus. lining of the eustachian tube. When
this tab3 gets inflamed you have a rumbling
sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is
entirely closed tdeafness is the result, and
unless the inflammiation can be taken out
and this tube restored to its normal condi
tion, hearing will be destroyed forever; nine
cases out of ten are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing but an inflamed condition
of the mucus surfaes.
