Efficient Court Officers.
Solicitor Wilson is a hard-working
go-ahead oficer. He did an'unusual
amount of work Monday, kept the
business of the court well up, and to
his efforts it is largely due that the
business was finished in one day, and
the juries discharged,-a saving of
more than a hundred dollars to the
county. Judge Wallace is a fine judic
ial officer, and appears to have the in

have given it an impetus and air of
progress that has made and is making
it a live town. It has two railroads,
the 20's and the 30's, running through
the town; about seventeen or eighteen
stores; a large hotel and a number of
boarding houses; etc. The people are
clever and hospitable. The country
is very fine, containing some magnifi

is on the line of the 30's; and leaving
Manning at 10 o'clock in the morning,
the train arrives in Rutherfordton

Killing Negroes for their Blood.
The negroes of this and adjoining
counties have, for several weeks past,
been in a state of abnormal fear and
trembling. They claim that there is
a white man, a doctor, who at will
can make himself invisible; and who
then approaches some unsuspecting
darkey, and having rendered him, or
her as is generally the case, insensible
by throwing chloroform in her face,
he proceeds to fill up a bail bucket
with his victim's heart-blood, for. the
purpose of making medicine. After
having drained the last drop of blood
from the victim's heart, the body is
dumped into some secret place where
lit is impossible for any person to
It is surprising how some of these
ignorant black people believe such
things, but it is a fact that they, the
women especially, believe it so firmly,
that they will not venture out at
night, or in the day time in any se
questered place. They greatly fear
to cross a branch or swamp, and will
not dare to go alone.
One old colored woman in speaking
on this subject recently insisted that
she believed it. She says that she
knows the white man makes castor oil
out of negroes' blood, and that in
slavery timnes a negro would die before
he would take a dose of castor oil.

he is running his business on a small
scale. As soon as he gets up hi

.HOW IT wnf.L RE DONE.
NivS prominent gentlemen from different
sections of the county will be requested to
give away the prizes, in the following man
These gentlemen will place in one box a
number of tickets equal to the number of
paid up subscribers, all of which tickets
will be blank except the eight prize tickets.
They will then place in another similar box
an equal number of tickets, containing the
names of the paid up subscribers, one name
on each ticket. After the tickets have been
carefully inspected and placed in the boxes,
they will be thoroughly shaken up and mix
ed together, until the committee is satisfied
that everything is fair and just. Then the
drawing will begin. Two little boys about
four or five years old will be blindfolded,
and one will draw from the box containing
the names of the paid up subscribers and
the other from the box containmng the tick
ets. The committee will at every drawing
(one from each box) inspect the tickets that
have been drawn and announce the result.
For instance, suppose the little boys have
each drawn a ticket from - their respective
boxes. 'Ihe name drawn by one little boy
is Always Loseum, and the ticket drawn by
the other is a blank. That means Mr. A.
Losea has failed to secure a prize. .The
little boys draw again. The name is Lucky
Fellow, and the prize ticket has sewing ma
chine on it. That means Mr. L. Fellow
has secured the sewing machine for his
prize. The drawing will thus continue till
all the prizes bave been given away.
This plan seems to us as fair as possible,
'and to have the least objections. Our sub
scribers may rest satisfied that everything
will be done in fairness.
THE HONOR IS'T.
We shall publish between now and the
4th of July the names of all the paid up
subscribers wvho will be entitled to a ticket
in the drawing. We are working our sub
scription list to a cash basis. On the fifth
day of July wve shall strike off our subscrip
tion list the names of all subscribers who
are as much as one year in arrears.
W.e trust our friends will appreciate this
enterprise on our part, and promptly pay
up all their back dues and a year's subscrip
tion in adv ance. We shall greatly appreci
ate all such. We have just bought a large
cylinder press, and it must be paid for. If

Southern Baptist Convention.
This body representing over one
million two hundred and fifty thous
and white Baptists, met in convention
at Memphis, Tenn., on the 10th inst.
Perhaps it may be well to state at
the outset that this body differs from
the great gatherings of every other
Christian denomination, in that it is
not clothed with any legislative power,
that power residing wholly in the lo
cal churches. The character of the
convention is only advisory, and the
only object properly coming before it
for its consideration is missions. This
for convenience is divided into home
missions and foreign missions.
So great was the outpouring of the
Baptist host on this occasion, that it
was evident before the hour for the
meeting of the convention had arriv
ed that no church in the city was
large enough to accommodate it.
When the hour for organization ar
rived, hundreds were compelled to
remain outside because of the impos
sibility to secure even standing room
in the church.
The crowded condition of the house
necessarily gave rise to some con
fusion, which for a time delayed the
organization. This however was at
last effected, by the election of Judge
J. M. Haralson, of Alabama, Presi
dent, and Rev. L. Burrows, D. D., of
Georgia, and Rev. 0. F. Gregory, D.
D., of Maryland, Secretaries.
Immediately after the organization
the report of secretary of foreign
mission board was read. This report
was highly encouraging, showing that
a great advance had been inade along
all the lines of our foreign mission
1st. In increased contributions. The
amount expended this year being
about $150,000, an increase over any
previous year of nearly $30,000.
2nd. In the enlargement of the
missionary force. Although many
have died on the foreign field during
the past year, still such has been the
growth that the number of mission

In the discussion pending the adop
tion of this report many things of
interest were brought forth, one I
would mention as it is a subject we
are all likely soon to be interested in.
On the report of the committee on
papal fields, our missionary from
Mexico, Rev. H. P. McCormick, called
attention to the deplorable condition
of Mexico as the result of the rule of
Roman Catholicism, showing that its
influence was to lead any nation to
disregard both truth and virtue.
- Theiisenssion on the extension of
the work, resulted in The- doption-f,
a resolution, requesting the churches
represented, to try to raise at least
$150,000 for the work during the
A mass ieeting was held on the 1st
night of the convention for the bene
fit of foreign missions, and about
$1900 iaised, principally for the house
to be built in Lacatecas, 31exico.
The report of the home mission
board was equally as encouraging in
the evidence of success attending its
labors which it exhibited. More
funds had been collected, a greater
number of missionaries employed,
more points occupied and a greater
number of converts, as the result of
Home MIissions applies to work
done in our Southern States, blut in
addition to this, owing to peculiar cir
cumstances, the work in Cuba has al
so been assigned to this board. Per
haps there is no mission point that
excites a deeper interest, and awakens
a livelier enthusiasm than the work in
Cuba. It is indeed the wonder of
modern missions. Rev. Alberto J.
Diaz, after a wonderful experience,
began work in Havana, about four1
years ago. Then there was not a Bap
tist in the city. He pressed on in the
face of many difficulties and persecu
tions, and as the result of his labors
there are now 1491 members of the
church and 2245 Sunday scholars.
The past year resulted in the conver
Ision and baptism of 300. In addition
to this they now occupy the 1st Bap
tist church of Havana, one of the
largest and finest buildings in that
city, for which the sum of $65,000 is
to be paid, $20,000 of which has al
ready been paid, and $5,800 more
raised for that purpose in a mass
meeting at the convention.
1There are many things that I would
like to say in connection with the
work in Cuba, but cannot do so at
Altogether the convention was
highly enjoyable, as well as encour
aging. It adjourned Tuesday, 14th
inst. to meet at Fort Worth, Texas,
on May 10th, 1890.
There are many other points of in
terest in connection with the conven-I
tion which I may present at some
other time. DELEGATE.
A White Man Whipped for Stealing.
GREELEYvILLE, May 18.-Hot, dry,
breezy weather. Just the kind for
the farmer who has his crops ready
for cultivation, and who has noxious
weeds and gr-ass to exterminate.
Alliance farmers are too intently
engaged on their farms, or are too
busy hauling supplies, or are dream
ing about cheap bagging, or something
else, to bother with Alliance business.
It is so much more convenient to
them to let somebody else attend to
it for them.

some articles which did not belong to
him. When he was overtaken he
said he had not stolen them, only
taking them to another lodging near
by. He asked that rather than be
prosecuted and sent to jail he would
submit to receiving fifty lashes with
a whip. After consultation the citi
zens present concluded to apply
twenty-five lashes as a warning and
example to other wrong doers. Dur
ing the castigation his wife showed
great distress. The report of the
punishment and the wife's trouble
reached Mrs. Taylor who is a wife
and mother. Her sympathy was
aroused and she sent a request that
the whipping be stopped, and her
request was complied with, which
saved him from ten strokes.
Perhaps this culprit deserved this
punishment, and more. Perhaps it
may be. the best thing which could
have happened to him; it may save
him from a worse fate; yet it is nat
ural that a wife and mother should
seek to save him from the disgrace, as
did Mrs. Taylor. Perhaps she thought
of the throb of joy in the mother's
heart when this man child was born;
of the anxious care bestowed in his
infancy; of the prayers which had
been uttered for his prosperity and
future happiness when he first went
out into the world. Perhaps she
thought he might have had parents,
who, ignorant and vile themselves,
had trained him in sin and wicked
ness. Perhaps she thought of the
pangs of heart this woman, this wife,
must feel for one she loved, whom
she followed, to whom she clung in
obedience to her vows. J. 31. B.
The Summerton Trial No a Trial.
Editor of The Mannmng Times:-.An
article appearing in the last issue of
the Tnis, under the caption of "The
Summerton Trial," contained some
inaccurate statements, for the correc
tion of which I ask the use of your
columns; so much of the article re
ferred to as I propose to notice, is as
On Saturday, the 11th of May, the case,
"S. Rush Cole vs. Julia Bradford." cane up
for a hearing, before Trial Justices Benbow
and Mahoney, in the academy building.
Mr. Rhame appeared for the plaintiff, and
Mr. Galluchat for the defendant, the old
colored woman above named, who has oc
the house over twenty years.
The case exci e' siderable interest and
attracted quite a cro ti-..-.1enty-four free
holders were summoned to appea si:rs
But, when the first name was called in the
effort to empanel this jury, Mr. Galluchat
interposed objection to the trial proceed
ing, in consequence of having been brought
under the wrong statute; the case presented
being for "forcible entry and de
detainer," when it should have been
for "tenant holding over." After a
somewhat prolonged -discussion between
justices, and counsel for plaintiff, the ob
jection was sustained and proceedings dis
missed, which finale sent the old woman on
her way rejoicing.
The statement in the first para
graph of the article above quoted,
that the defendant was an old woman
who had occupied "the house" for
over twenty years, is obscure; but if
the words, the house, therein contain
ed, referred to the premises, the pos
session of which Mr. S. R. Cole claim-j
ed, then; in the first place, the state-i
ment is not true, and your informant
thaEt die-wasegrgiously mis-j
taken; in the second place,;Ts ubi.
that, as no testimony supporting theI
statement referred to, was adduced
on the ochasion, it should not have
found a ilace in any account of the
proceedings intended to be reported
in y-our article, as such statement was
calculated to' prejudice future pro
eedings in the same matter, unfavor
ably to Mr. Cole.
Until I saw your article, I wats not
aware that the proceeding which you
have incorrectly termed a "Irial," ex-j
ited so much interest as is claimed~
in said article, and I failed to see the
"crowd" therein referred to: beyond
the eighteen free-holders, (not "twenty
four," as you have stated), I do not
think there were more than four or
five white persons present; there were
present, perhaps, ten or a dozen col
ored persons, among whom were the
relations of Judy Bradford; these
composed the "quite a crowd," men
tioned in your article, and I thiuk,
that, unwittingly you have magnified
the importance of the, so-called, trial.
There was nothing to distinguishI
this proceeding from others of the
same kind, so as to lift it into the im-,
portance suggested in your account
When the name of a proposed jury
man was called, Mr Galluchat, repre
senting Judy Bmiadford, notified the
Trial Justices that he objected to the
proceedings, and on being asked to
state the grounds of his objection, lhe
said: That there had been, in is
opinion, a mistake in bringing the
proceeding under section 1817 of
General Statutes; that to his mind,
they should have been brought under
section 1819 of said Statutes. Hay
ing been retained by the relator, Mr
S. R. Cole, only a few days before the
time appointed for the hearing of his
application for a writ of restitution of
the premises rented from him by
Judy Bradford, I had not seen any of
the papers issued in the cause, and
after the objection interposed, I ask
ed to be allowed to examine such pa-:
pers, and upon an inspection of the
sum mons, discovered that it contained
an inadIvertent statement-presulma
bly a clerical error-which under a
condition of facts different fron3
those which the relator expected to
prove, would have brought the pro
ceeding within the provisions of the:
sections of the General Statutes 2290
to 2298, embraced in chapter xc. there
of; considering the summons, there
fore defective and incurable, I there
upon, in behalf of Mr Cole, moved
the Trial Justices to dismiss the pro
ceedinig. There was no "prolonged
discussion" between plaintiffs' coun
sel and the Trial Justices, but after a*
short consultation between them
selves, there being no objection to
my motion, they granted it, and the
proceeding was dismissed on account
of the defect in the summons which
I had brought to their attention. The
proceeding which the Trial Justices
intended to institute under section,
1817, was the correct one for the
purposes intended to be accomplish
ed, and only fell through on account
of the oversight I have mentioned.
There was no trial, on the occasion
referred to of aimy issue in the pro
ceding, and the condition of all par
ties to it, remains in statu qun.

Little Prospect for the Graded School.
Mn. EDITo:-I saw in last week's
issue of the Enterprise a letter written
by a "parent" on the graded school
question. As usual we find abuse in
place of argument. Why will some
people in Manning try to have their
own way, and yet, when a man speaks
out his honest convictions as you have!
done in this matter, be charged with
selfishness and littlene.s. They must
judge from their own standpoint, and,
if so, thus expose themselves to be
charged with what they unjustly
charge against you. "Oh, consistency,
thou art a jewel." Now the editor of
the Enter;>rie in his reply used argu
ment, and is entitled to be heard, but
"Parent" has fallen short of the mark
and ought to think twice before he
speaks again. We want the graded
school, and want harmony among
our people. and if we ever get it we
will have to have "a long pvll, a strong
pull, and a pulltogether."
Now let us see what the 2 mill tax
will bring us. First, our share
(graded school) of the constitutional
2 mill tax will be about $300, poll tax'
about $120, and about $575 from
this extra tax, $995 in all. Now let's
see about the expense of running a
free graded school: rent of house and
equipments $500; principal of school
$1000; assistant $600; second assist
ant $400; in all $25,000. With $995
to commence with this will run the
school just three months and twenty
days. What about the other six
months and ten days? If we ever get
a free graded school in Manning we
shall have to have special legislation
on the subject.
However, Mr. Editor, the whole
thing falls through this year from
bad management. The law requires
the school trustees to call the tax
payers together, and this call should
be publised two weeks (14 days) be
fore the first of June. Time is too
short now, and the discussion might
as well stop. PARENT No. 2.
Gen. Moise's Prize Corn Acre.
Gen. Moise's prize corn is coming
up, and as the manner of planting is
original we will try to explain. The
field is in the deep rich soil of Tur
key Creek. Gen. Moise had ditches
cut about a foot deep and several feet
wide, and as many feet apart. He
has planted his corn in those ditches
and will draw the soil to the corn
up. A litle later in the season he
expects to plant corn between the
ditches and he will then have a solid
field of corn. The whole has been
most thoroughly prepared and with
seasons we expect grand results from
this field. It is well worth a trip to
go out there and look at it. Our opin
ion is that if farmers generally would
try to get out of the "old ruts" and
try new methods as Gen. Moise is
doing, (though of course not always
in the same way) many of them would
be far better off and -would not feel
the need (?) of a separate Agricultu
ral College. The field of experiment
is after all the best college that a farm
er can attend, for there he is bound
to learn something about farming.
G~en. Moise has set our farmers a val
uable example in this respect.--Sum

Important to Farmers.
Every farmer in South Carolin:
as well as in any other State in the
Union, will next year be called upon
by government officials in the servicel
of the Census Bureau, and asked t(
give the statistics of his farm, crops
stock, etc., for the previous year
which is the present one of 1889. Tc
be prepared to answer these question;
intelligently and satisfactorily, every
farmer ought to begin now to keel
accurate accounts of all farm opera
tions, and 'continue it throughout the
year. The agricultural statistics of
this country will be gathered in this
way and the sum total of the result
will show the degree of prosperity at
tained by every State and county. II
is therefore of the utmost importance
to each section and locality that these
matters be correctly reported to the
census takers. If the farmers of South
Carolina desire to see their State take
a deserved high rank among the pro.
ducers of farm products, they will
take care to make their very best ex
hibit when the representative of the
census makes his appearance some
time in 1890.
