THE MANNING TIMES.
S. A. NETTLES, Editor.
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 12, 1889.
It is said that several of the John
stown people are so overcome by the
terrible flood that they have torn up
their Bibles and cursed their God.
The Columbia Register is to be cap
italized under the name of the Regis
ter Publishing Company. The capital
stock will be $50,000, divided into
1000 shares of $50 each.
Manning must have the canning
factory, and we must also have a cot
ton seed oil mill. We have heard a
number of persons speaking very fa
vorably of it. The boom is through
out the State, and we hope Manmng
will be among the foremost. Let's
It is now about definitely ascertain
ed that Dr. Cronin was killed by or
der of a secret society of which he
was a member, the Clan-Na-Gael, to
prevent his divulging the misappro
priation of some funds. It was an
Irish society, in which the members
were sworn to kill any member who
violated the rules or was particularly
objectionable. Of course it was, a
The Democrats of Ohio are now en
gaged in holding county conventions
for the election of delegates to the
State convention, and the nomination
of legislative and county tickets. So
far, in almost every instance, the con
aio have, adopted resolutions
strongly endorsing the late Adminis
tration of President Cleveland, and
reaffirming the principles of the Dem
ocratic platform of 1888.
Don't kill all the grass. Save an
acre, plough it up, and let the grass
grow. Cut it off at the proper time,
and four or five times the profit will
be realized as off an acre of corn or
cotton. Fodder is now generally
considered almost valueless as food
for stock. Hay is the best kind of
food. Fodder is expensive to gather.
Hay is easily harvested, cultivated at
small cost, and yields a big profit.
Therefore, by all means, don't kill all
the grass, but let a part of it grow
into hay. But keep the corn and
cotton fields free of grass. If you
Siseibay, raise hay; if corn or cotton,
keep it clean, and raise only the one
The deaths from the Johnstown hor
ror, it is now believed, are only about
half as many as first supposed. The
total number will be 5,000 or proba
bly less. The people are in a desti
tute condition. But the whole world
is helping them. Upwardsof $2,500,
000 has already been contributed.
South Carolina has contributed very
liberally. Last Saturday the South
Carolina Railroad- sent a freight train
along its lines from Charleston and
Augusta to Columbia. The people
all along the line contributed liberal
similar things are done.
Cotton bagging against lute bag
ging is the great case now on trial be
fore the Southern farmers. Last
year-the jute manufacturers formed a
trust, and raised the price. The far
mers were naturally incensed at it.
Now the cry is down with jute at any
cost. Cotton or pine straw is to take
its place. And we don't see why it
can't. It will cost more the first year,
possibly the first few years, but then
it will eventually be sold at low prices.
However, we publish an article from
*a-prominent Charleston firm which
gives a practical view of the matter.
We also publish the action of the
Farmers' Alliance in several counties,
wherein they swear eternal war and
enmiity to jute bagging. This is a
matter that needs close and careful
attention. In a multitude of coun
selors there is safety.
Sis a sad, a lamentable fact, the
in which -parents treat the educa
tion of their children. They think
that when they send their children to
school they have done their whole
duty. A visit is never made to the
school house. They do not care
whether their children are provided
with hard, uncomfortable benches for
seats, or with convenient and comfort
....aishs They do not seemingly
care about the moral training of their
childen. This is all wrong, and dis
couraging alike to teacher and pupils.
The teacher loves to think that the
parents are interested in his work,
ils sar elightsdand stim
y e visits and initerss-ef-i
parents. We speak from experience.
In a seven years' experience in this
place, scarcely a dozen parents have
visited our school, and we cannot re
e all a single visit made by a public
-'school trustee. The school commis
sioner has been to see us three or four
times, and the State Superintendent
of Education about the same number
of times. There is food for thought
in this article.
Our views on the State pension
business were freely expressed a year
ago, and they have not since changed.
We think it a very unjust law. We
believe that if a pension is granted,
it ought to be granted to all alike.
The man who lost a limb in the ser
vice of his State, and yet who has
since, by energy and honesty, accu
mulated a little property and is sup
porting his family, is more worthy,
far more worthy, of help than is that
man, who, lazy and shiftless, becomes
a pauper, and makes no support for
himself and family. We believe in
giving equally to every man
who lost a limb, or who was dis
abled by service in the war, and ev
ery'vidow of the Confederacy should
have a pension.
We are told that in several cases in
this county considerable dissatisfac
tion is manifested. The State board
has granted pensions when not recom
mended and endorsed by the home
boards, and the State board has de
clined to grant pensions in several
cases, where the home boards were ful
ly convinced that pensions ought to be
granted. We have not inquired into
he namae or circumstnnan f any of
these parties, but if an error is to be
made, we think it always best to err
on the safe side. Rather than let one
needy one suffer, give to all. We 'ope
the law will be amended again this
winter, and give pensions to all alike.
We some time ago published a list
of the pensioners approved for this
county. A check for $12 was sent
last week to Clerk of Court James E.
Davis, for each of these parties.
To Delinquent Subscribers.
From business principles and
from past experience in the news
paper business, we are fully con
vinced that the indiscriminate
credit system is very pernicious
in its effects. THE MANNINeJ TIMES
will consequently, after July 4th.
be run on a cash basis. or. very
short credit. On July 5th, 1889.
unless satisfactory arrangements
have been previously made, the
names of all subscribers who are
in arrears as far back 'as March 1,
1SSS, will be stricken from our
list.. We have about a hundred
such names, and while we dislike
very much the idea of losing so
many subscribers, yet we had
rather lose them than run the risk
of losing three or four times as
many hundred dollars. If the
TIMEs is worth anything it is
worth $1.50 a year; and any per
son who during the year's time
cannot pay this small sum had
best not take the paper at all.
We are endeavoring to publish
a good, readable, lively paper. If
you think we are worthy of being
sustained in our effort, pay us the
small sum you owe us; if not, we
shall be compelled to discontinue
the paper to your address after

who are in arrears for more than
sixteen months ($2) will cease to

think it would be fair and just .to
pay us this balance now, when we
need it so much?
About the Johnstown Flood.
JoNss-rowN, PA, June 8.-Rain fell here
from midnight to daylight, but towards noon
the clouds disappeared and the sun came
out strong. The smoke of the burning tim
ber spread itself over the entire valley and
seriously hindered the labors of the work
men. The air, too, was filled with offensive
i odors of the fast decomposing bodies of
human beings and animals.
It is beyond human power now to take out
any more bodies that can be even identified,
and therefore the protection of the lives of
those here will soon demand that heroic
measures shall be taken in the interest of
the general welfare. The exigencies of the
occasion demand that upon the recovery of
remains they shall be immediately buried.
This is what will undoubtedly be the out
come of affairs before M~onday.
Every one here believes that not less than
five hundred and as high as one thousand
' lie imbedded in the debris that ex
i th ~ucti f teConeanang,
road stone bridge. The work sof removing
the wreckage jammed in the riv-er bed -con
tinues, but is necessarily very slow, as the
debris is almost as solid as rock down twen
tv- feet to the bed of the river. Almost one
hundred feet square has been cleared thus
far, and at that rate experts say it will take
not less than two months to complete the
Gangs of men have been set at work on
the river toward Kernville, who are carrying
the debris to the fiat lands and burning it.
Coroner Hammer, of Westmoreland coun
ty, sitting in inquest upon bodies found at
Nineveb, took the jury to the dam yester
day, and to-day a verdict is being prepared
for the signatures of the jurynien. It will
Ithrow the blame upon the Soiet Fork Fish
ing and Hunting Club for - ;oss, if not
criminal negligence, and c'irelessness in
making repairs from time to time."
Some t-alk is also he-ard blaming the Penn
sylvania Railway, as they leased the dam
from the club, and then abandoned it and
allowed it to decay.
The supply of bread this morning was
totally exhausted, and a gre-ater supply of all
kinds of provisions is badly needed. The
falling oft; the committee thinks, is due to
reports sent out a day or two ago that there
was an overstock.
The number of cases of sickness is re
ported as growing larger. Ten workmen
were taken to the hospital with symptoms
of typhoid fever. The doctors are now work
ing day and night.
To-morrow five hundred laborers will be
receiv.ed here from the State of Ohio, sent
by Governc.r Foraker.
Our Public Schools.
In Ande~rson an effort was made to secure
the signatures of a majority of resident free
holders to a petition, to call a convention of
taxpay ers to determine whether a special
tax should be levied for the purpose of es
tabhishing a graded school. A majority of
the freeholders refusid to sign the pietition,
hence the meeting was not called. Manning
has been discussing a s-' questI '
it is esiaa-lan is than n eight
aidtrivould be suicie-nt toa maintain a
graded school as it should be in Manning.
Camden tried to establish graded schools
with 14 mills extra, but there was a failure;
and now 3 mills extra is levied and still our
trastees-all shrewd business men, too-are
fe.a rully cramped. There is not enoug~h in
ter st taken in our schools by the patrons.
The send their children to school and ex
peet them to be educated without the sacrl
tice of an; time or attention whatever on
their part. It is a fearful commentary upon
our people too, that a dozeu~ men should
mecet together and vote a three mills tax, for
the purpose of maintaining our graded
schools, and not a siagle oae be present at the
closing of the schools. Yet this is a fact.
The graded schools closed 'lst Tuesday,
and not a single visitor was present.
It is essential to any community that
there should be at least one good ~school,
but w;hatever may be said in praise of our
graded schools, there is a wonderful lack of
interest whinch must be apparent to every
one, and which embarrasses those who are
try ing to build up good schools in our town.
Yet we are palying a large tax for the pur
p)ose of giving a good common school edui
cation to the boys and girls of our district.

Cont.Wions Blood Poisons
is the constitutional blood disease
which has for several centuries past
been infesting mankind with its an
noying features and destructive re
suits, and is now the great bane of
the human race. This is the worst of
all blood contagion, as the horrible
poison is transmitted from one gener
ation to the next, and even the third
and fourth. We do not honestly be
lieve that the terrible scourge has ev
er been cured and thoroughly eradi
cated from the hnman body by any
other remedy than Swift's Specific,
and we further say that Swift's Spe
cific has never been known to fail to
make a permanent cure in any case
when it has been taken before any of
the vital organs bad become so im
paired as to render a cure impossible.
Swift's Specific entirely cured me
of a severe case of blood poison
which obstinately resisted and refused
to be cured for over 26 years. The
regular medical remedies of mercury
and potash only added fuel to the
flame. I suffered during most of this
long time with ulcers, blotches and
sores of the most offensive character,
and was for 'a long time practically
an invalid. In less than thirty days
use of S. S. S. I was all cleared up
sound and well. This has been near
ly a year ago, and no sign of any re
turn of the old enemy.

assuming that the higher education does
unfit women to be motL.rs. A year or two

collected statistics from about eight hundre d
women, college graduates as to their bgaith
of their childron, the numiter who have

from the-se statistica: that the health of the
girls genernlly improved at college, when
they did not over-study; and that the death
rate among the children of college women
is remarkably low. An educated woman
knows better than an ignorant one how to
care for her own health and that of her
children. Again, the quality of the children
has to be considered as well as the quantity.
The child of an educated woman is likely

HOW IT WILL nE DONE.
Five prominent gentlemen from different
sections of the county will be requested to
give away the prizes, in the following man
n 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 cf the paid up subscribers, one name
on each 'icket. After the tickets have been
carefully inspected and placed in the boxes,
they w ill beL thoroughly shaken up and mix-:
ed togrether, until the committee is satisfied
that everything is fair and just. Then .the
four or five years '. -ill be blindfolded,
anid one w ill draw frori the box containing
the names of the paid up subscribers and
the other from the box containmng the tick
ets. The commrittee will at every' drawin
(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
bo::es. 'Ihe namie drawn by one little boy
is Always Loseum, and the tiehet draw-n by
the other is at blank. That means M3r. A.
I oseu'm has failed to secure a prize. The
little boys draw again. The name is LnekyL
Fellow, and the prize ticket has sewingma
chine on"it That means M3r. L. Fellow
hats secured the sewing machine for his
pize. Tihe drawing will thus continue till
all the prize.s have been given away.
This 1)1lan seems to us as fair as possible,
and to hatve the least objections. Our sub
scribers may rest satisfied "that everything.
will be done in fairness.
