THE MANIL CEMETERY.
About a year ago, an effort was
made to revive the old charter of the
Manning cemetery, but except apply
ing for a charter and getting the cem
etery cleaned of grass and weeds,
nothing was done. All interested in
the cemetery are requested to meet
to-morrow (Thursday) afternoon, at
5 o'clock, in the court house, when
the organization will be completed.
We urge every citizen of the town to
attend, and hope a large number will
be present. Let us look after the last
resting place of our loved dead, and
beautify and adorn it.
FREE GRADED SCHOOL.
Last Saturday about twenty persons
met in the court house to discuss the
practicability of a free graded school
for Manning Mr. I. Bagnal was
\..,.called to the chair, and several gentle
men werecafled upon to address the
meeting. It was thought that about
half the money could be raised by
means of the constitutional two mill
tax, a special two mill tax, the poll
tax, and the possible $300 from the
Peabody fund, and that the balance
would have to be made up by charg
ing tuition fees. But if tuition fees
are charged it will not be a free school;
and the result of the meeting last
Friday but confirmed what we have
heretofore held, that it is impossible
to sustain a public graded school in
Manning, with less than an eight or
ten mill tax levy. Any institution to
be successful must have a financial
backing. If Manning were possessed
of three or four times her present
wealth then we could successfully
talk of a free graded school: but the
talk at presentVsimplymeans an effort
to establish a third school in this
place which, while it will charge tui
tion fees, yet by having the benefit of
all the public money and an addi
tional special tax, will be enabled to
charge only about half the tuition fees
We caidridlysthiuk the parties who
are making this effort to get a third
school are taking the wrong step. It
is impossible, and every sensible man
will readily admit this, to run a free
graded school in Manning. Then why
not let these parties who are so deeply
interested in establishing a pay school
which shall get all the public money,
do, as others interested in the schools
of this place have had to do, back up
their posed school with their own
capi'a The proper and legitimate
way to proceed, is for the parties in
terestel in the new school to form a
company backed up with the cash,
rent their school house, hire their
teachers, and come in honest compe
-tition with other schools. The plan
proposed is to get all the public money
now given to all the schools, tax the
people for almost as much more, and
then with all this public pap, place
their tuition fees where other schools
cannot compete with them.
-We desire to repeat, what we have
reiterated time and again, that we are
in favor of anything~that will forward
-the prgreTssof lianning and Claren
don; we are heartily in favor of afree
-graded school for Manning, and when
the time comes when one can be sup
ported, we will be foremost in its es
tishmnent; but we also say we do
not believe in any such scheme as is
now on foot.
A petition is circulating for signa-1
tures to have a free giaded school in
-Manning. We have given plain, un
varnished facts. A free graded school
cannot be established with less than
an eight or ten mill tax levy. Allthe
public money to one school, including
a special two mifltax, simply means
to let one schocoi run at very low tui
tion rates, and make those who patron
ize other schdols pay the same tuition
fees as now.
The Conneticut State Board of Ed
ucation has issued a report from which
it appears that illiteracy is all too fre
quent in that State. Examples of ex
aminnan are given which show alow
state of educational comprehension
among children, and inquiry has been
instituted as to the cause of this con
.dition. It is not difficult to fmd in
the figures of salaries paid to teachers
which appear in the same report.
There are fifteen male teachers in the
State who were paid $20 or less per
month for their~ services, and sixty-six
males and 360 females who received
$25 or less per month. Of course
nothing like the above could be said
of South Carolina, though, by the way,
since we come to remember, there are
a few teachers in Clarendon who get
much less than twenty dollars, and are
well paid too.
-Both branches of the Minnesota
Legislature have passed a bill making
drunkenness a crime, and it now
awaits the Governor's signature. The
penalties prescribed are severe enough
to take away the element of indiffer
ence and are, for first offence, a fine of
not less than $10 nor more than $40,
or imprisonment for not less than 10
nor more than 40 days; second of
fence $30 to $40 fine, or 30 to 60 days'
imprisonment; third offence 60 to 90
A prominent member of the South
Carolina Conference suggests that Dr.
A. Coke Smith write a life of the late
'Bishop Wightmnan. A splendid sug

consent to do so.

I don't think I shall like honey in
the near future, and have already
banished pan cakes and honey from

Bees are a small insect with a yaller
striped tail down their backs. They
are governed by a monarchy, and
their king is a queen. In disposition
they are very erratic, and generally
attend strictly to business, at least
their business end does, and in rather
a painful way. Their chief business
seems to get mad and make honey
which they steal from flowers in other
people's gardens. When one gets mad
he flies on you, does something, and
then you jump, holler, and run home.
They are said to be a very useful
domestic animal, but it will require.
undoubted proof for me to believe
this. At this moment I am of the
opinion that bees are an unmitigated
nuisance. I may, however, change
my opinion with the soothing influ
ences of time, and as soon as my
swelled head and shut-up eyes get
well. Beckey is better, and says she
hopes to survive. We have already
used up two bottles of magic balsam,
and by persevering in it we hope to
recover, but the memory of the occur
rence stings us yet.
This is how it happened: This
spring I concluded to raise some bees,
and bought two swarms from old man
Floyd. He delivered them to me,
praised them up to the skies, and said
"that from them I could get two other
colonies, and in a year or two I would
have as many as I could attend to." I
thought it a fine thing to have them
about, as their industry would be an
example to be followed by my house
hold, and stir up things generally, and
they did stirup thingsso far as Beckey
and myself were concerned.
Matters seemed to have gore on
smoothly with the bees until last
week, when a large swarm which ap
peared to be dissatisfied with their
house, came out from one of the
hives, and proceeded to emigrate. I
had been told that in order to prevent
their roving disposition I must make
a noise to cause them to settle on
some object. We got up a lot of tin
pans and horns and if ever bedlam
was let loose we had it. They soon
settled under the eaves of the cow
shed; and to get them in a new gum
I had ready, was the question. I
sent over for nabor Gardner, and he
told me it was easy enough: "Just
get up on the shed over them, and
give the shingles a smart blow, and
they would all fall on the gum." (I
had placed one on a table right under
them.) "That there was no harm in
bees if you are not afraid of them." I
was skeptical as to whether or not the
bees would know when the afraid
part would take place, for I was dubi
ous all the time and would have sold
the whole lot at half price, and
thought I had made a good bargain.
However, I told Beckey to stand
near by to help, and I got on a step
ladder and got on the shed which was
pretty steep, in my stocking feet. I
moved very cautiously to the eaves,
and when just over the swarm I raised
the hatchet to give the blow which
would make me master of the situa
tion, when something happened, and
like a streak of greased lightxiing I
slid off the shed on the gum smashing
the table. In my rapid descent I had
grabed the bunch of bees and carried
them along too. I presume they must
have been in a mad state, for before
I could get out of the tanglement I
was in they had stung me from Dan
to Beersheba and back again. They
popped Beckey good too before she
could holler, and soon they got all
mixed up in her long hair, and for an
hour afterwards every now and then
she would grasp her head in both
hands and cry, "Mercy me!" "Did I
ever!" For once I have enjoyed the
luxury of having short hair, close
Therefore under the circumstances
I will now reiterate'on behalf of my
self and Beckey that neither of us are
passionately fond of bees, nor honey
likewise, and notice is hereby given
that there are two stray hives in our
back yard to be given away.

Last week, a package of the Watchman
and Southron, destined for Shiloh, in this
county, went astray, and the direction was
torn off. The package was returned for di
rection and every paper was marked "Mis
Sint." It is presumable that the swarthy
railway clerk intended "Missent." Men
of intelligence and undoubted capacity
have been supplanted by scholars who sup
pose that the above written expression is
English. "Mis Sint" is about as conclusive
an argument in favor of the Solid South as
we have ever read.
In many instances it has been proven
that B. B. B., (Botanic Blood Balm), .made

I kept using it until I had taken sixteen
bottles, and all the ulcers, rheumatism, and
all other horrors of blood poison have dis

Robt. Ward, Maxey, Ga., writes: "My
disease was pronounced a tertiary form of
blood poison. My face, head, and shoul

the disease began eating my skull benes.
My bones ached; my kidneys were deranged;
I lost flesh and strength and life became a
burden. All said I must surely die, but
nevertheless, when I had used ten bottles of
B. B. B. I was pronounced well. Hun
dreds of scars can now be seen on me. I
have now been well over twelve months."

Social Equality not Practicable.
In answer to the vague fear that the edu
ation of the negro will promote "social
equality," Dr. Haygood makes a statement
which, if once thoroughly impressed upon
the Southern white people, would settle so
much of the Southern question that the rest
would settle itself: "There never was in
this world, in any nation or community,
such a thing as social equality, and there
never will be. The social spheres arrange
themselves to suit themselves, and no laws
promulgated by State or Church will change
the social afiinities and natural selections of
men. Men choose the circles for which
they have aflinity, seek the companionships
they prefer, and find the places that are
suited to them. * * Everywhere and
rorever the right thing is the politic thing."
