THE MANNING TIMES.
S. A. NETTLES, Editor.
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 17, l889.
What's the matter with the acts of
the last session of the Legislature ? It
has been four months since this body
adjourned, and yet the acts have not
been published. Somebody is to
blame, and badly to blame too. These
acts should be published as soon as
possible, within one month after the
adjournment of the Legislature; yet
four months have passed and no acts
yet. An explanatian is in order.
Can't the Columbia Register or the
Neu and Courier throw a little light
on the subject?
An effort was made last Saturday to
organize a County Farmers' Alliance,
but it proved unsuccessful from the
fact that a sufficient number of sub
alliances hadC2t been organized in
the county. A county alliance must
consist of not less than five sub-alli
ances. Other sub-alliances will be or
ganized as rapidly as possible, and in
a short time Mr. Pettigrew will return
and organize the county alliance. We
believe the alliance to be a good
thing, and to teach good and just
principles, but unless the members go
to work with a will and determination
to accomplish something, they might
as well join a society to grow oranges
in Alaska. Work, honest work, is
what the farmer must do to succeed;
and work is what is needed to make
the alliance a success. Let every farm
er who is interested join, and join for
the purpose of promoting his and his
fellowman's prosperity. Then the or
ganization will prove a success; oth
erwise a miserable failure.
Our readers are familiar with the
facts; o? the; Waldrop Lynching in
Pickens, in which one Manse Waldrop,
a white man, was lynched by a crowd
of negroes, for criminally assaulting a
thirteen-year-old negro girl and there
by causing her death. This was the
first case in history where negroes
had lynched a white man for violat
ing womans chastity, and much inter
est centered around the trial of those
eigaged in the lynching. Two of
them were found guilty and sen
tenced to be hanged. Immediately
petitions from every part of the State
were sent to the Governor. Fifty
two separate petitions signed by near
ly four thousand persons, mostly
white, and a number of personal let
ters from prominent gentlemen, ask
ing for clemency, confronted the Gov
ernor with a loud demand for justice.
And he has yielded, by giving them a
free and full pardon. We think he
has acted wisely. The negro had
but done what .his more intelli
gent white friend had by example
taught him; and never had any pun
ishment been visited upon the white
man. It did seem hard to make the
poor negro suffer for what the rich
white man could do with impunity.
No hanging 'will be done, but the
influence will be greater than a hang
ing coukt~have produced. Lynchers
have been taught a lesson, and here
after more deference will be paid the
law. A pardon was given this time
simply because poor ignorant negroes
had done what more intelligent white
men had done. But a warning has
been given, and whether white or
black, rich or poor, the guilty lyncher,
if convicted in court, will expiate his
crime on the scaffold. The pardon
power was well exercised; and we
'el ve it will result in less ly aching
in the future.
The Governor has also commuted
the sentences of Ned Criss and Thomn
as Wright, of Charleston, both color
ed and sentenced to be hanged, to
imprisonment for life in the State
What Occupations are "Genteel" for a
Quite recently we heard a gentle
man state that to educate a woman
too highly was a mere waste of time.
According to his idea, a woman was to
be reared, trained, and taught to think
that there was nothing honorable for
hertodoinlife buttomarry. We were
sorry to think that any one in this
enlightened age should retain such a
benighted theory; for though we be
lieve that a woman's happiest and
best career is past in the fulfillment
of a wife's and mother's duties, still
we have so often witnessed the fallacy
of not educating America's daughters
to support themselves-if it should be
requisite to do so-that we are con
vinced every woman should be taught
some art or trade early in life. Geni
-us of course bestows her corrusca
tions upon few persons; but there isI
plenty of work for the daughters of
the middle classes to do, if parents
will only teach them liow to prepare
for the many employments that are
open to them; and if the girls. them
selves, when employment is at their
command, will only frankly accept it
and bravely work at it, instead of
maundering pestilent rubbish about
occupations that are not "genteel"
For instance, is it not a national
shame and disgrace that good cooks
should be so scarce, and that well-to
do people should have bitterly to com
plain that their lives are made a bur
den to them by that "something"
which is perpetually going wrong in
the kitchen-so wrong, indeed, that

el, then she will have one unfailing
weapon against poverty, for a good
cook is always in demand. A pro
fessed cook is worth from two hun
dred and fifty to three hundred dol
lars a year; and a young lady does

the cook is emphatically the Queen of

they are sensible folk-must defer to

The faded, miserable old maid who
has let the best years of her life go by
while she sat with folded hands wait

body who did not appear-wakes up
in her old age to find herself helpless1
! and hopeless. Perhaps the death of
her father suddenly rouses her to a
fact that she is passee, poverty strick
en, and homeless. Terror seizes her,
"A woman's a skeery critter without a home.'
Longingly this one who has wasted
her best years looks upon her young
er kindred who steered their bark out
in the whirlpool of business life years
before. With bitterness such women
gaze on the busy little typewriter,
stenographer, book-keeper, trained
nurse, and correspondent. These
girls were not reared to marry in or
der to gain their livelihood; but if
Cupid wings his dart at them they
bravely take upon themselves the du
ties of a wife, and to such marriage is
seldom a failure. Which is the bet

COLr mBIa, April 13.-West Keeler, color
ed, one of the convicts received from Green
ville county on the 27th of March, made a
break for liberty while working on the Canal
last Thursday morning and was shot by the
guard. He had been convicted of larceny
of live stock and only had one year to serve.
The bullet entered the lefthip from the rear
and made its exit through the right groin.
He died to-day.
Faraby Sincleton, colored, female convict
who escaped from the State convict farm in
Lexington county about two weeks ago and
was recaptured the next day, attempted an
act of fiendishness at the same place yes
terday which may possibly consig. her to
the gallows. When the squad were about
to leave the stockade for their work in the
field in the morning she secured a live coal,
wrapped it in a pair of wollen stockingsand
put it under the mattress of one of the beds
in the stockade, where two other women
were lying sick with the measles. The stock
ade was locked up with the sick women in
it, and but for the presence of one of the
laborers on the place, who discovered the
fire a short time after the guard left, they
would inevitably have been burned to death.
Fortunately he had presence of mind enough
to break off the hasp and staple of the door
with an axe, and went in and put the fire
Jasper Partlew, a colored convict at work
on the canal, committed suicide by jump
ing into the Congaree river while a ball and
chain were fastened to him. When brought
here last Saturday he swore he would die
rather than work. To-day he was rolling
dirt in a wheel barrow near the edge of the
ri'ver, and suddenly rushed forward and
imped into the water. Eight shots were
iird at him, unnecessarily however, as he
sank by reason of the weight attached. The
jury held an inquest and rr-urned a verdict
that he was drowneC. 'hile attempting to
esape. Partlew was scat here from York
ville under five years sentence forlarceny of
live stock. This was his se::ond term. The
first time he escaped in 1878, anal remained
at large eight years, arnd was pardoned the
same year he was recaptured.

Local Tales of a Hundred Years Ago.
Mx. Enrron:-About one hundred years
ago times around Manning were very differ
ent from what they are now; and as on the
30th of this month the Washington In
augural Centennial will tikhe place in New
York, I thought it would be well to repeat
some facts with the names of the parties
connected, that took place in our vicinity in
those early days.
On one occa'sion the British came to Mrs.
Ridgill's, on Bell branch (where WV. A.
Mahoney now lives), and ordered her to pre
pare breakfast for them. She put every
thing to cooking, and went herself to the
cowpen to milk the cow. While milking
Marion's men came in sight. She recognized
her son John, one of the number; it seemed1
that the British also recognized them and
fled, protecting themselves by the house so
as to avoid a battle, and took the swamp.
The breakfast was prepared for the British,
but eaten by Marion's men.
At another time one of Marion's men,
Abin B3agnal by name, was a prisoner at
Stateburg, and was informed by the guard
that he was to be shot in fifteen minutes.
Mr. Bagnal watching his opportunity threw
his heavy hat in the guard's face and es
caped, reaching his sister's house on Bear
Creek (Mrs. Nancy Raffield) before daylight
the next morning. This Mrs. Nancy Rai
field (nlee Bagnal) was the grand mother of
James C. and Win. Strange, now deceased,
and the great grand mother of the Stranges
of our county.
The settlers at that time from Sammy
Swamp to the Williamsburg line were the
Ridgills, Clemons, Lloyds, Carrs, Bagnals,
Davises, Dukes, Wests, Rtaflelds, Shorters.
and Hiltons. Many of their descendants
are now in our midst. All honor to these
patriots of a hundred years ago. They
worked on their farms, and provided for
their families, and fought the foe when call
ed upon, and at last they gained that inde
pendence that will be celebrated on the 30th
inst., in N'ew York. Ow CrrmEN.

OW !0 WE oif aU0 GRAVES?
We must cat or we cannot live.
This we all know. But do we all
now that we die by eating ? It is
said we dig our graves with our
teeth. How foolish this sounds.
z(t it is fearfully true. We are ter
rified at the approach of the cholera
ad yel^: feecr,yet there is a dis
ase constantly at our doors and in
our houses far more dangerous and
destructive. Most people have in
heir own stomachs a poison, more
slow, but quite as fatal as the germs
of those maladies which sweep men
'nto eternity by thousands without
warning in the times of great epi
demics. But it is a mercy that, if
we are watch ful, we can tell when
we are threatened. The following
are among the symptoms, yet they
do not always necessarily appear in
the same order, nor are they always
the same in different cases. There
is a dull and sleepy feeling; a bad
taste in the mouth, especially in the
morning; the appetite is cLange
able, sometimes poor and again it
seems as though the patient could
sot eat enough, and occasionally no
appetite at all; dullness and alug
'ishness of the mind; no ambition
to study or work; more or less head
ache and heaviness in the head;
dizziness on rising to the feet or
moving suddenly; furred and coat
ed tongue; a sense of a load on the
stomach that nothing removes; hot
and dry skin at times; yellow tinge
in the eyes; scanty and high-colored
urine; sour taste in the mouth, fre
luently attended by palpitation of
the heart ; impaired vision, with
spots that seem to be swimming in
the air before the eyes; a cough,
with a greenish-colored expecto
ration; poor nights' rest; a sticky
slime about the teeth and gums;
rands and feet cold and clammy;
irritable temper and bowels bound
up and costive. This disease has
puzzled the physicians and still puz
zles them. It is the commonest of
ailments and yet the most compli-.
cated and myteious. Sometimes
it is treated as consumption, some
times as liver complaint, and then
again as malaria and even heart dis
ease. But its real nature is that of
constipation and dyspepsia. It arises
in the digestive organs and soon
affects all the others through the
corrupted and poisoned blood.
Often the whole body-including
the nervous system-is literally
starved, even when there is nc
emaciation to tell the sad story.
Experience has shown that thereis
put one remedy that can certainly
cure this disease in all its stages,
namely, Shaker Extract of Roots or
Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup. If
never fails but. nevertheless, no time
should be lost in trying other so
called remedies, for they will do no
good. Get this great vegetable
preparation. (discovered by a vener
able nurse whose name is a house
hold word in Germany) and be sure
to get the genuine article.
