and up to about two years ago it was!
used for all public entertainments
but for reasons satisfactory to thuse

for almost any other purpose, refused

The halls of the acadyn buildin
which have been used for these exer

too small to accommodate the usual
crowd, consequently it was necessary
to restrict the attendance.

History ol Calary ITaptist ('hurch.
In a notice of the death of Col. TI .
I. Connors, somona time ago, we stated
hat he was the last member of the
ougregation that more than fifty
cars ago organized Calvary Baptist
hurch, and called fite 1ev. H. W.
Inhoney to the pastorate. Mr. A.
laksonTiudal tells us that we were
nisinforimed on this point. He says
.alvarv church was orgauized more
han a hundred years ago. The rec
rds of the church have unifcrtunately
>een lost. He gives us the following
iistory of this old church:
High Hill Baptist church, near
tateburg, is probably the oldest Bap
ist clrhCli in this country. More
han a hundred years ago, a mission
rv was sent from this church to or
;utize Calvary church. This was
lulv done, and a s:mall frame building
n-ected. The lumber for this church
,vas sawed by a '-whip saw." The
irst pastor was lev. Bradley lhame,
great grand uncle of Senator lhame,
1f this place. The first deacons were
probably .Jeremiah Ilhamie, a brother
>f tle preacher, and .JTmues Tindal,
lather of Mr. A. J. Tida1. Mr.
Bradlev lhame remained pastor of
this church till his death, probably
'orty yeais. At the death of "Mr.
RIhamie, 1ev. H. W. Mahoney, then a
m'ung man, was called to the church.
[t was his first call. He accepted, and
since then, for more than si::ty years,
bie has b.enI the only and regular paS
for of this church.
During the first few years after Mr.
ahoney's pastorate of the church,
Where were no regularly ordained dea
ons or elerk. The first deacons or
laiued during Mr. Mahoney's pastor
ate were Levi F. sIhame, ason of Jer
2aliiahI Rhame, and James H. Tindal,
.i son of James Tindal. These two
remained deacons till their death.
The next deacons weie H. F. Tindal,
brother of James H. Tindal, and Col.
John 0. Brock. These were both or
Jained before the war. Col. Brock is
t ill a deacon of the church, but Mr.
Tindal died about twenty years ago.
The deacons of the church since his
leath have been, James F. Tindal,
Robert J. Holladav, and Judson
Broadway. Mr. Htollia died a few
At present l1ev. H. W. Mfaihoney is

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 MANNING TIDES
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
namies of ae
in arrears as
1888, will be
st. We have
such names, and
veryv much the i
rather lose thi
ne -or rur timer as
mfany hundred .lollars. If the
TLIMES is worth 'anything it is
worth $1.50 a year; atnd any per
son who during thte year's time
canlnot 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
sutained in our effort, pay us the
smiall sumii you owe us; if not, we
shall b~e comnpelled to discontinue
the p~aper to your address after
After ,July 4th, 1889, all sub

iosinig Exercises of Liberty Hill School.
Mn. EDIroR:-Our peaceful community
was allI astir on last Friday night going to
see the closing exercises of the Liberty Hill
School!. This school consists chiefly of
sm:dl children, arnl it is said by all that the
exercises were the oest on record. And so
another mear has end~ed. How fast they
coec andi go, these eight months of earnest
work and endeavor. Oar deeds whether
good or bad are nowv beyond reeudl. As we
review the work and the innumerable needs
that have arisen, and then realize our weak
ness and miany failures, we can only ask the.
dear Father to pardon the wrong, and bless
even our mistakes and fai:ures, to the
fartherance of -his kingdom and the ad
vanceient of those about us. 'We trust that
the seed-sowing we have fried to do in this
little corner of Clarendon will be continued
during vacation by many of our girls and Ii
bos. We are confident and believe that
only in the hereafter will the extent of this
work he known. The closing exercises were :
fll of interest if we may judge by the well
tilled house andl the nmany appreciative words
spoken. When the work is taken up for.
1889-90, may it be with the new building
4impletel. As we separate for the summer,
each to pursue his own course for rest, recre
atio,. or laboir, we earnestly trust that all
way go forth conscious of the divine prov'i
dece, and so meet with success in what
ever direction sought.
Mye owtear loving scholars,
As nearer to the time we come
When from you 1 must part.
To-day as each of us looks back
The past three years to view,'
I see how illiterate you were
W ~hen first I came to you.
efore I k-ave onr school home,
ef(!ore I say fare.well,
I ?t to say I thank you more
Than any words can tell.
A seore of miles between us roll,
Eac one his work to do;
Iwill a a-s cherish with'delight
Swecet amories of you.
When wye hamve life's great problem solved,
And badelhis world farewell,
In Heaven we hope to reunite,
With Christ for e'er to dwell.

How Money is Wasted.
Much has been said in the newspapers:
ibout our farmers buying what they eat and
gear from a distant market. It is claimed
;hat by sending money out of the country
.or corn, meat and provisions generally, the
expense of living is increased and times are
made harder. There can be no doubt of
This, however, is not the only way in
which money is wasted. Our section is an
nviting field for traveling agents of every
description. They find it profitable to make
n occasional trip through this section.
Glib of tongue they have no difficulty in
persuading our people to buy a lot of rub
bish for which they have no earthly use.
The man who sells maps makes the largest
and easiest gains. In a few moments he
persuades the countryman that a map is
one thing he needs above all others. The
map will be a great education for him and
his family. He will read about Alston or
Branchville, and it is highly important that
he should know the exact longitude and lat
itude of such noted points. All he has to
do is to consult the map and he can point
out to his children precisely where these
places are located. Thus he will educate
them at home. Impressed with the neces
sity of having such a reference, the victim
pays his money and gets the map. He rarely
consults it more than once a year for he has
no need to do so. The map hangs on the
wall till it becomes worn and soiled. It
should be a daily reminder of how the own
er has thrown away his money.
It is not so, however, for the first agent for
a patent churn-dasher who comes along finds
no difficulty in disposing of his wares to
The man with a recipe to make soap for
nothing takes him in next, and he is ready
to buy from the patent medicine vender a
remarkable remedy every time he visits
Cotton planters, guano distributors, horse
collars, plow stocks and new kinds of cotton
seed take away more money, and still the
condition of the country is not improved.
Perhaps the biggest sell that ever took
money from our section is the fruit drier
which a number of our men bought a. few
years ago. They tried to sell it without ad
vertising, contenting themselves with the
distribution of hand bills. It is unneces
sary to state that the machines are still on
hand. As we have a good fruit year only
once in five years it strikes us as passing
strange how a man of any judgment could
ever have been induced to put his money
in any such a visionary enterprise.
Another astonishing thing is why any one
should buy a subscription book at an enor
mous price and put it in his bookcase with
out reading a page of it. There would be
ten times as much sense in spending the
money for a good newspaper or magazine.
Another waste of money is to pay a man
for the silver plating job. If you have cheap
ware there is no sense in spending money
to have it plated when you can buy a new
supply for less money.
Words fail us when we strike the feather
renovating business. A feather bed can be
cleaned by beating the feathers with a few
switches and exposing them to the sun for
awhile as by the machine used by the trav
eling gangs that are scouring the country.
It will be done better, for the oil will not be
extracted, and the fearhers will retain their
It is difficult to estimate the amount of
money wasted every year by our people in
such purchases. Has any one ever got the
worth of his money by any such investment?

Careless Pension board.
The Star seems to have stirred up a hor
net's nest in regard to the pension law. The
flagrant violations of it has raised up it hue
and cry that the next Legislature must re
spect. The present law is as incomplete
and loose as it could possibly be, and if ad
vantages of it has been taken in other
counties, as in ours, the appropriation must
soon be exhausted. Last week Clerk Will
cox received a telegram from the pension
board in Columbia telling him to withhold
the check for W. B. R. Gasque, whose ap
plication has been allowed when it was in
complete, lacking the auditor's certificate.
When it was known that Mr. Gasque's ap
plication had been allowed, Mr. Bethen, the
auditor, immediately wrote to the pension
board and requested them to examine the
application more carefully, as he knew that
he had refused to sign the auditor's certifi
cate that the applicant's income does not
exceed $250, and that he is not possessed of
sufficient property to produce such incoue.
