By last evening's mail we received
the following letter, written by one of
the most prominent and influential
gentlemen in the county:
Mx. S. A. Nmrrmns-4Dear Sir: Enclosed
please find $3 due for paper. I regret that
my subscription has been due so long.
I think it will - be a wise change from
credit to cash. We are all so apt to neglect
the small amounts due for any purpose. I
cannot afford to be without your paper, and
will try and pay up promptly hereafter. I
hope 1 am in time to draw one of your val
uable presents, as I never got any thing in
that line before. Yours truly,
We have lately received by letter
and otherwise many kind words, and
we feel greatly encouraged at the
kind way in which our appeal for
money due us, to pay for our new
press, has been received. We shall
endeavor all the more to improve the
Tnus, and make it a better paper.
We shall have to strike off this
week a number of good men's names
from our list, but we can't help it.
We cannot afford to run our paper
on a loose, unsystematic credit basis.
If our-paper is worth anything, it is
worth what we ask for it. And if
any one does not want it, why we
don't want to send it. So pay if you
want the paper; and no pay, no

That game of base ball of which so
much has been said, and which I
neglected to report, was played here
last week between the Foreston and
Greeleyville clubs. There was some
good playing, the best we have ever
seen in the country. The score stood
13 to 12 in favor of Foreston. Much
credit is due to a Mr. Dickson, as
pitcher (who assisted our boys), for
the able manner in which he deliver
ed the ball, and also a Mr. Montgom
ery, as catcher, who knew exactly how
to take them in. Upon the whole the
clubs were very evenly matched.
Messrs. Sparks, Campbell, and Can
tey, of the Greeleyville club, did some
fine work, and so indeed did they all
on both sides. We understand they
are to play again in the near future.
A burlesque game was played last
week between the old men and the
boys. Maj. C. S. Land umpired the
game; Dr. L. W. Nettles scored; and
I believe the little ones were winners,

Another Revolutionary Tale.
S..nnnm, June 27.-Mr. Editor: I
congratulate you on your success in
giving us a good, live county paper,
and always open it first of all myl
maiL. I have been deeply interested
in the articles written by "Old Citi
zen," and wish very much he would
continue to write. He has put us to
studying the history of our own State,
and in that study I find that General
Sumter, better known as the "Game
cock," was severely wounded in the
trasta BladkstuOciorthe-banlks- of.y
the Tyger River. In this fight, with
forces about equal, Tarleton lost nine
tv-two killed, and 100 wounded; the
"Gamecock" lost three killed and the
same number wounded, he himself
being one of that number.
I find that the friends of Sumter
employed a novel way of conveying
him to a place of safety. "He was
wrapped in the raw hide of a bullock,
suspended between two horses, and
conveyed to a place of safety in North
Carolina." While Marion, the "Swamp
Fox," was tender and compassionate,
Sumter, the "Gamecock," was
true and brave. Thus you see we
had at that time two heroes who im
mortalized themselves so that genera
tions pass, and still we find patriots
willing to study over and write about
these things, in order that they may
be handed down: from father to son,
and never be forgotten.

FORESTON'S FINE FARMING. I
Maj. Land and Col. Hudgins Each Have
Fie Corn Crops-King Cotton not yet
MR. EnrroR:--According to promise
I give you a sketch of my travels. I
left Manning on the 7 P. 31. train, pass
ed by the "City of Corn," and spent
the night at Greeleyville. Next morn
ing I returned -to Foreston, and was
soon in the fields, inspecting the corn,
measuring the distance, counting the
stalks, etc. Before I left Manning I
visited Mir. W. K. Bell's farm, and
found that he had a fine field of corn,
25 acres, which will be hard to put
down by even the "prize acre men."
Mr. Bell's corn is on seven foot rows,
two feet apart on the row, therefore
he has 3000 stalks to the acre. The
variety of corn planted by Mr. Bell
is that commonly planted in our coun
ty. It is worth the time of anybody
who wants to see fine corn to visit
Mr. Bell's field.
Mr. John Thames also has a very
fine acre of corn. I did not count
the stalks or measure the distance
of his corn, but would say it would
be well for our farmers to visit his
crop down in the branch, and see for
themselves how easy it is to make
corn provided we have first the branch
bottom and then the spunk to tackle it.
Now let us return to Forestoin. I
found several fields of Maj. Land's
corn near the town. Some five foot
rows, and others seven feet. The five
foot rows contain 3010 stalks and
promises to be very fine. The next
field, his six foot rows, were thicker
and contains by actual measurement
6972 stalks to the acre. In a distance
of 35 yards I counted on one row 83
stalks, and my friend, P. W. Wynd
ham, followed and counted 96 silks on
the 83 stalks, so you see we have
struck bottom. His variety of seed,
however, is from Illinois, and I am
told that experts say it is not thick
My next trip was to Col. Hudgins's
crop, aid just let me say here that
Col. Hudgins having stimulated the
people to raising more corn, has this
year turned his attention to cotton,
and from the appearance of his fields,
about 75 acres in all, I think -he will
convince the planters in his section
that "King Cotton" can be profitably
raised there. I finally visited the
prize acre. Well now, Mr. Editor, I
have heard people speculating on this
corn, but your scribe will not undertake
to say how much it will make. Let me
tell you it is a sight; 20,000 to 30,000
stalks, 40,000 to 50,000 ears! Who can
savhow much itwill make? Iknow this
much, if the worms do not injure it }
too much, and the next crop turns out
well, Col. Hudgins will scare somebody
when the actual measurement takes
I cannot say who has the best corn,
the truth of the business is, each of
the gentlemen alluded to has a right
to feel proud of his corn, and in the
opinion of this scribe is head and
shoulders above their brother farmers
in making corn. Let us hope that
our people will bestir themselves, and
that next year many of our farmers
will "go and do likewise."
Rain in abundance, and the out
look is plenty of corn, and some to!
spare another year. NIX. 1

her charming face an~raceful man

days, of precious memory.
In my rambles along the way I can
safely say much in favor of the beau
tiful fields under cultivation. Much
more attention has been paid to coin
this year than formerly. It looks now
as if corn will be made in abundance.
The farmers are more concerned and
interested in corn planting.
The first object that strikes your
attention after leaving the "bays," is
the cotton fields of Mr. David Lev'i.
These fields to the eye of a casual ob
server abound with fine cotton. High

Mr. W. M. Butler has the reputa

night, howvever, have resulted seri
usly, not improbably in loss of life.
About an hour after Mr. Ashby
eeks crossed over, Mr. Jack Weeks
ame up driving his beautiful horse
hich took several prizes at the last
state Fair. The creek was still rising,
Ld of course more dangerous to
ross. Mr.'Weeks, however, noticing
hat others had crossed, both horse
)ack and in a buggy, supposed. all
vas safe, and confidently drove his
orse into the creek, which by this
ime was nearly five hundred feet
vide. Very soon his horse began
wimming, and the buggy was float
d on top the water. Mr. Weeks of
~ourse got a little damp! and the
urroundings asumed an interesting
Lspect. His valuable horse ~was in
langer of drowning, and his own life
vas in danger for he was not a swim

>ther important package in the bot
om of the buggy,that was too heavy
o float. - But his horse proved equal
o the emergency, and landed him on
he other shore safely, though pretty
vel saturated with water.
All these difficulties overcome, the
>arty got together, caught plenty of
ish, enjoyed the day hugely, and in
he afternoon all started back togeth
er. When they got to the creek they
ound it still rising, and crossing it
ttended with greater risk and dan
It looked risky crossing that stream,
out it must be crossed. All had con-:
idence except Mr. Jack Weeks. -He;
iniself could not swim, and his horse
as too valuable to risk his drowning.
Finally it was concluded that Mr. Pat
Brock should swim his horse ahead,
md Mr. Ashby Weeks would follow,
Letting his horse carry the buggy back
he same way as he brought it over.
l'is plan worked finely for a while,
Nir. Weeks's horse swimming and
plunging, but doing no harm to the
buggy, until after crossing the deep
est part, he came to where he could
reach bottom with his feet. Then, as'
Bill Arp would say, the horse "estab
ished" 3imself, refusing to budge
nother iep, but stood there with his
had ele :ated sufficiently to keep his
bose ou of the water. Mr. Weeks,
after faigang to get his horse te pro.
eeed, crawled over the dash board, on
to the horse's back, and again urged
him to go forward. Still no go. Oth
ers of the party swvam to Mr. Weeks's
rescue, and they too tried to force the
horse to go, but he still refused, until
suddenly, a new idea probably occur
ring to his horseship, he literally went
to diving. Of course he got strangled,
and coming to the surface, snorting
and blowing, he struck out for the
shore with huge lunges. Mr. Weeks
lost his seat, was thrown out into the
water nn had to swim to the shore.
The horse beat him there, but carried
the buggy safely over.
Now the nest thing was to get Mr.
Jack Weeks and his horse and buggy
over. First he got a smaller brother
to swim the horse over. Next he and
a boy got on one of the largest horses
and swam safely over. Then two or
three of the party got hold of the
buggy, and swimming, pulled it over.
All were safely over now, except
that veteran old swamper, Capt. J. J.
Broughton, who had wonderfully en
joyed the events of the day. He had
staid behind to see that all the party
got safely over, and now he would
cross in regulation style, that is, with
his stirrups crossed and his hands
grasping the mane of his horse, and
thus by standing erect he would be
able to keep almost entirely out of the
water. Fannie swam beautifully, and
to all appearances it looked as if the
Captain would get across dry, but he
was doomed to disaster. Fannie was
swimming too near a tree, and finding
it necessary to rein her out, he pulled
the bridle rein, but, alas! he did it too
suddenly, and she turned broadside in
the water, when of course she had to
go to the bottom to recover, Capt.
Broughton thereby receiving a first
class ducking. Finding it unneces
sary to further guard against the dif
ficulties of life he manfully yielded to
the inevitable, and finished the ride or
swim to shore, seated in his saddle.
It was a matter of considerable dis
cussion during the day if it would not
be beat for Mr. Jack Weeks, in return
ing, to temporarily swap horses with
Capt. Broughton. Mr. Weeks's fine
horse then could be swum across with
certain safety, and if in driving Capt.
Broughton's farm horse over, he
should happen to drown, the loss
would not be so great, and Capt.
Broughton would'have as recompense
a fine horse.
It was an eventful day, and every
one literally got soaked, but most of
the party enjoyed it hugely.
RHEUMATISM AND CATARRH.
Rheumatism and catarrh are both blood

Blood Balm), made by Blood Balm Co., At

R. P. Dodge, Atlanta, Ga., says: "My
wife had catarrh and nothing did her any
good. Her constitution finally failed and
poison got into her blood. I placed her on
a use of B. B. B., and to my surprise her
recovery was rapid and complete."
W. P. McDaniel, Atlanta, Ga., writes: "I
was much emaciated and had rheumatism
so bad I could not get along without crutch
es. I also had neuralgia in the head. First
class physicians did me no good. Then I
tried B. B. B. and its effects were magical.
I cheerfully reccommend it as a good tonic
and quick cure."
Mrs. Matilda Nichols, Knoxville, Tenn.,
writes: "I had catarrh six years and a most
distressing cough, and my eyes were much
swollen. Five bottles of B. B. B., thank
God cured me."
John M. Davis, Tyler, Texas, writes: "I
was subject a number of years to spells of
inflammatory rheumatism, which six bottles
of B. B. B., thank heaven, has entirely

Impurities of blood cause great annoyance

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 MANNING 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,
1888, 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
TIES 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
After July 4th, 1889, all sub
scribers to THE MANNING TIMES,
who are in arrears for more than
sixteen months ($2) will cease to
receive the TIES. .Don't you~
think it would be fair and just to
pay us this balance no0w, when we
need it so much?
