sell anything in his line at the very

too, is reliable, and customers may
rest satisfied that he is honest in what

One of the largest, handsomest, and

old quarters because of want of room.
They now occupy one of the largest
stores in the place, and have their
goods both upstairs and downstairs.
Every thing is neatly and systemat

presents a very attractive appearance.

Moses Levi, the prince merchant
of this whole section, returned last
week from the North, where he pur
chased an immense stock of fall and

offer such inducements, such low
prices, that he will get the trade. Mr.
Levi's goods are daily coming in by
the carload, his freight bill alone each
day amounting to nearly a hundred
dollars. He keeps in stock ever ything.
Be sure to call early and see his
goods: they will be sold low down.
He is offering some great bargains,
and will continue to offer bargains
during the season. He says he pro
poses to sell goods regardless of cost.
But he must have the cash for these
bargains; don't ask him for any credit
on them, as in -most cases they will
be sold at actual cost.
It is almost useless for us to waste
space in directing attention to the ad
vertisement of Bultman Bros. They
have been in business so long, and
have done such excellent and sub
stantial work, that the name alone is
a guarantee of the goods. We will,
however, relate a true thing about
them. In the year 1867 a prominent
gentleman in the Brewington section
had Bultman to make him a pair of
boots. These boots lasted that gen
teman for seventeen years, when he
sold - them for six dollars, and got
Bultman to make him another pair,
which he is still wearing. The gen
tleman himself told us, four or five
years ago, about this pair of boots,
and in mentioning it last week to
Mr. Bultman as a remarkable occur
rence, he did not seem to so consider
it, but took it as a matter of course.
His work cannot be surpassed.

Ithe firm of Durant & Belitzer, dealers
in furniture. They have just opened
a .lre furniture store, and have it
stocked on the first and second floors
with an immense stock of furniture
ranging from the cheapest to the
most costly. It is a treat just to walk
through their mammoth establish
ment and see their fine line of beauti
ful goods. One thing especially will
strike the eye of the visitor as he en
ters the store. In one of the front
windows is a beautiful rosewood par
lor suit finished in silk plash, one of
the most handsome suits of furni
ture we ever saw. It is valued at one
hundred dollars, and is to be given
away. Every person who buys fur
niture from the store, to the amount
tof ten dollars or more, will get a tick
et for each ten dollars worth bought.
Then there will be a prize drawing,
and the lucky ticket holder will get
this magnificent suit of furniture.

ured an optometer, or eye tester, with
which he can readily determine what is the
matter with your eye, and can tell
whether the use of glasses is nec

ing glasses from any dealer, and think as
long as they can see through them they fit,
but this is a very great mistake. A glass
onyfit for awhile, and not properly fitted,
must soon ruin your eyesight, which is
priceless to any one.
If you want a pair of glasses properly fit

will examine your eyes free of charge, and
will fit you with the proper glasses at very
low prices. I keep spectacles and eyeglass

A Confederate Reunion in Western North
WY ESVILLE, N. C., August 30th,
1889.-Editor Manning Tine: I will
supplement my letter of the 17th in
stant, with some items which may not
be without interest to some of your
Some time ago, the surviving sol
diers of the Confederacy living in
Haywood county, decided to have a
reunion, opening on the 28th and
ending on the 30th of this month; to
this proposed re-union the surviving
soldiers of the other counties of
Western North Carolina were invited.
Accordingly, Waynesville, for some
days past, has been the scene of con
siderable animation, caused by the
arrival within and near its limits, of
so many veterans of the late war, and
of others coming as friends of the
veterans, and spectators.
A part of the program for the occa
sion, was that the survivors of the
several commands attending, should
go into camp about one mile south
west of this place, but the heavy and
incessant rain preceding and on the
28th, allowed of only a partial accom
plishment of this plan, and many of
the soldiers were quartered in the
town, a considerable body however
going into camp, which was located on
a grass-covered elevated plain around
which meanders Richland Creek, a
clear and cool mountain stream.
Owing to the rains mentioned the
main exercises of the reunion took
place on yesterday at the camp, when
there were present about fourteen
hundred surviving soldiers of the
Confederate army and about thirty
five hundred spectators among whom
were included the mothers, wives,
daughters, and other relatives of the
In the forenoon, after some prelim
inary remarks, prayer, and a speech
of welcome, addresses were made by
Genl. Chrigonan, Hon. R. B. Vance
known as "Bob Vance"-and others;
these speeches I did not hear, but in
fer from what I heard of them, that
they were worthy of the distinguished
orators who delivered them.
Dinner was next in order; three
very long tables held a bountiful sup
ply of substantial edibles, besides all
the spectators were supplied with
private baskets, from which dinners
were laid on every side upon the
reen sward and under sheds to suit
the convenience of family groups and
their invited guests: to this meal, it is
needless to say, full justice was done,
and Western North Carolina open
handedness was fully illustrated by
the bountiful supply of food.
In the afternoon the ceremonies
were opened by the presentation by
Ex-Solicitor Ferguson of several vet
erans of No. Ca. regiments, who had
been conspicuously brave in battle,
winding up with the introduction of
the flag-bearer of the 39th regiment,
bearing its tattered banner; torn by
bullets and begrimed and powder
stained by the -smoke and dust of
many a battle, this old memorial of
the existence of the Confederacy and
the valor of the soldiers who fought
uder it, was an object of great inter
et and admiration, and evoked the
odest cheers and huzzas of the oc
~asion: this flag was saved by being
aken from its staff by its bearer,
Folded up and put in his knapsack and
as replaced by a new one shortly
efore the surrender.
Father Ryan's beautiful poem, "The
onquered Banner," was then recited
y Mr. Ferguson of this place, after
hich His Excellency D. G. Fowle
he present Governor of this State,
was introduced and made what was
nown as the memorial address of the
>casion. The Governor spoke at
ome length, and his address; taken as
whole, was full of fire and eloquence
nd commanded close attention.
Next in order, came Ex-Governor
farvis, whose address though rather
ong for the occasion, was fully up to
the expectations of his listeners: it
vas full of patriotism, and stirring
comiums on the valor of the North
arolina troops in the late unpleasant
ness, and the Ex-Governor carried his
State pride so far as to say: that these
survivors should be called "North Car
olina soldiers," instead of "Confeder
ate soldiers." The distinguished
speaker showed that he was an ar
dent lover of North Carolina, and ad
mirer of that part which her troops
took in fighting the. battles of the
onfederacy, he himsef having been
crippled in his right arm by a wound
received in one of these battles. The
speakr said that when, some time
back, he went as minister of the
United States to Brazil, and explained
to the Emperor of that country, why,
in saluting the latter, he offered his
left, instead of his right hand, the
Emperor was over-joyed to meet him
nd throwing his arms around the
minister, embraced him, thus showing
is gladness to meet a genuine soldier
of the Confederacy..
The next speakers following in the
order named, were Judges Davis,
Avery and Shepard, associate judges
of the North Carolina Supreme Court:
these three last named speakers, spoke
eloquently and to the point; of course,
cannot even give a summary of
their respective speeches, and will on
Ly add that I am inclined to be more
pleased with the short speech of Judge
Shepard; but it is simple justice to
say all three of the speakers did credit
to the great State of which they are
such distinguished officials.
Major W. W. Stringfield, a surviv
ing officer of the Army of Tennessee,
but for many years past, a citizen of
Haywood county, introduced the
spakers in the afternoon, and was,
also, chief marshal of the occasion;
and I was struck with the great good
order preserved among the largest
mber of persons who have ever as
sembled in this part of North Caroli
na: from the mountains, hill-sides,
plains and valleys of Graham, Chero
kee, Macon, Jackson, Swain, Hay
wood and Buncombe, the men and
women came by the hundred and were
assembled about the grounds: every
type of the Westei n North Carolina
citizen was here represented, yet the
services of policeman or constable
were not required to enforce good
order; good humor prevailed and
good behavilor was an assured fact.
I noted with interest, the appear
ances of different types of individuals
gathered on t'he camp-ground: here
one could see the stalwart and straight
form, coal black hair and piercing
eyes of the Indian, or the grey headed
mountaineer grasning the long barrel
of his rifle of aule bellum days, with
mod:; sportsman feels when handling
his splendid breech-loader; here the
mountain maid in her picturesque
dress, accompanied by her ruddy
cheeked swain, and the belle of the
valleys and plains, decked in more
fashionable array, mingled together,
and here also were a good sprinkling
of stylishly habited ladies whose ad
vantages for culture and refinement
had been of superior character; here
were the well off and well dressed
farmers and men who tilled the soil,
either by their employees or with
their own hands, the day-laborers,
clergymen, doctors, mill men, miners,
professional politicians, and, lastly, a
few dudes; but the vast majority of
this assemblage were good respectable
and respected citizens of Western
North Carolina. By way of digres
sion, just here, let me say: in my
opinion, a North Carolina dude, is
more insufferable than one of the So.
Ca. genu.s, and in a contest, would
"take the cake" for dudeishness.
On the occasion of this reunion, the
undemonstrative character of these
mountain people showed itself; though
several popular and favorite speakers,
delivered addresses which, in our
State, under similar circumstances,
would have evoked storms of applause,
here, the enthusiasm was of a mild
character, and the applause so faint as
to make it seem proper to have given
The mountaineers however, with
exceptions, are, by nature, a stoical
race,'reserved and slow to express an
opinion; nevertheless they can be de
pended upon to act with promptness
when occasion requires, and they
evinced, under all circumstances, a
degree of shrewdness, good judgment
and intelligence, incomprehensible to
The old veterans which assembled
here, are evidently the survivors of a
heroic band of soldiers, and the
younger men, guests of the survivors,
are no less devoted to the honor and
welfare of the State.
Among the noticeable characters
present, was the chief of the Chero
kee tribe of Indians in this State; he
is not only physically fine looking, but
is really a well educated, refined and
high toned man, is looked up to by
the tribe as their father and adviser,
and promulgates the rules and regu
lations for their government. This
chief, whose name is Smith, married
a white woman, and I am informed,
on good authority, that he and his
family are much respected by the
good white people who know them.
The meeting of these veterans, was
an occasion in their lives, never to be
forgotten; I witnessed the meeting to
gether of many of them who had not
met for twenty-fve years; this morn
ing there was a general breaking up,
and the larger part of them separated
to return to their homes. A large
number of the old soldiers went their
several ways by private conveyance,
though a very large contingent came
here on the cars.
Just before the west bound train,
which was to carry off a large body
of the veterans this morning, left the
depot, the old flag of which I have
spoken, was unfurled by its gallant
bearer, and as the folds of the old
emblem of the lost cause floated in
the breeze, the heads of all the men,
both outsiders and veterans, were
uncovered in honor of the flag, and
while the band played Dixie, amid the
cheers and waving of handkerchiefs
of the outsiders, and the tears and
audible sobs of the brave men who
once followed that flag, many of
whom had just said good-bye to old
comrades for the last time, the train
moved away. As an actor in the great
drama freshly revived by these scenes,
my heart went out to the brave rep
resentatives of the departed glory of
I had the honor of being one of the
invited guests at the reunion, and my
name was enrolled as such.
There were many incidents con
nected with the event which I have
hastily described, that I would like to
mention, as they would be of interest
to every survivor of the late war, no
matter what State he may belong to,
but the great length to which this let
ter has grown, admonishes me that I
have trespassed already too long on
the patience of your readers, I will
however add an item which may inter
est other survivors and that is this:
the men of one of the companies,
Co. "F." 69th No. Ca., claim that it
was the last company in Confederate
service, east of the Mississippi, which
laid down its arms: that its surrender
took place on the 9th day of May
1865, its muster roll showing, on that
day, three commissioned and thirty
non-commissioned officers and pri--I

THE BEST ADVERTISING.
The most effcient advertising in behalf of
Hood's Sarsaparilla is that which comes
from the medicine itself. That is, those
who are cured by it, speak to friends suffer
ing similarly, who in turn derive bene
fit and urge others to try this successful
medicine. Thus the circle of its popularity
is rapidly widening from this cause alone,
and more and more are becoming enthusi
astic in behalf of Hood's Sarsaparilla as it
actually demonstrates its absolute merit.
All that is asked for Hood's Sarsaparilla is
that it be given a fair trial. If you need a
good blood purifier, or building up medi
cine, try Hood's Sarsaparilla.

Pao., Sept. 2.-Fortune is smil
ing on Panola. There is no neighbor
hood in Clarendon whose future looks
more flattering, or whose prospects of
speedy and lasling prosperity look
more promising. For some time I
have promised to write something
agreeable for the TmIEs. Your read
ers are always kept so full of good
things my pen almost fails. I fear too
much may be distasteful, an over
dose of anything proves nauseating.
We have had repetition after repeti
tion of oil mills, railroads, gin houses,
new towns. Everything has been
written, read and reread, until a stran
ger might think these wihereabouts
abound with scenery equal to none
except London. We have been gorged
till our appetites are full. Not so with
Panola. What next? Well the Alli
ance; war to the bitter end on jute.
Messrs. Trust and Company are on
trial for their lives. Is this all? no.
The farmers are wide awake on other
kindred matters. It has already been
said politics is the moving cause; far
from it. But suppose this to be the
case. Must farmers have no politics ?
Must they continue to be the dupes
of every and any monopoly who would
squeeze the life's blood from the poor
farmer? I have been shown some
items bought on a lien that would
move to tears a small devil, yet the
seller has no conscience in the matter.
This is all right enough, but the farm
er commits an unpardonable offence
when he lifts his voice against extor
tion or cries out against an evil which
is daily sapping the life's blood from
some of the best people who cultivate
the soil. I do not suppose an Alliance
man would wage war or oppose any
profession simply for political gain.
This is not the spirit or intention of
the order. But there is one thing I
do know, if true to themselves, true
to a supreme being, TEKEL will be
found written on the wall. Some of
these very extortioners' countenances
will change, their knees will be made
to smite one against the other. The,
Farmers' Alliance is a perfect sine
I have during the past month seen
many crops, and think I am in a po
sition to judge impartially of both
cotton and corn. The continued rainy
spell gave a tremendous weed, such
has been scarcely known before to the
most experienced planter, low lands a
signal failure, up lands will scarcely
give two-thirds of a crop. Much
money will be lost this year to the
farmers. There are exceptions where
cotton lands are well drained. The
corn crop is the best we have seen for
years. This is only so where corn has
been well worked.
The saw and the hammer give no
uncertain sound. Lost time, short
crops must be remedied, new stores
are to go up everywhere. Our farm
ers will have to keep bonfires illumi
nating their fields from the clutches
of the seed cotton buyer. Little crops,
road shops, and catch pennies are a
mania. The disease has become so
contagious that everybody wants to
be a merchant, and the situation really
looks as if Paniola and its suburbs will
become a solid town. But when the
worms get through their invasion
they will have but little left. I can
not see that they will do much hurt.
Old cotton will not be injure~ at all,
for its fruitage is ripe to the h- .vest;

Beulah on a Boom.
BETHLEHEM, FLORENCE Co., Aug. 30.
Mr. Editor: Although we are in an
other county, and much against our
will, we read the Manning papers with
pleasure, and take great interest in
the welfare of old Clarendon, as we
congratulate ourselves in having
many true and tried friends within
her bounds. Long may she prosper!
The candidates for election in Flor
ence county had their meeting at
Beulah according to announcement
on the 20th inst. Everything passed
off amicably, although it was feared
that there would be a "war of words"
between Mr. L. S. Bigham and some
of the candidates who want to be re
elected. This was the first visit of a
good many of them to this section of
country, and they expressed them
selves as being agreeably disappointed
in the looks of the country, as also in
the manners, habits, &c., of the in
habitants. They were under the im
pression that Beulah was situated in
a mere frog-pond, and that its quiet
denizens were serenaded at night by
the frogs, and lulled to gentle slum
ber by the soothing and melodious
tones of that much talked about and
much felt insect, the mosquito. It was
a happy circumstance that delayed
their visit a few weeks, or they might
have been tempted to exclaim in re
gard td the mosquitoes, that "the
half had not been told." They were
also under the impression that the
social status of this favored corner of
civilization was only a few degrees
above barbarism. They were most
agreeably surprised however to meet
with so much intelligence and hospi
tality, and could speak from personal.
experience, that. they had been most
kindly entertained during their short
Our future town of Beulah is mak
ing slow but sure progress, as will be
seen when I tell you that there will
soon be two stores in full blast.
Messrs. Baker & Floyd own one, and
Mr. Q. J. Joyner, an enterprising
young merchant, has built and will
soon have his store well stocked with
general merchandise. We can then
boast of two stores, one steam saw
and grist mill and gin, one church, an
academy, postoffice, and four or five
residences in sight of the church. Now
who will say that Beulah is not on a
boom, and that she may at no distant
day aspire to the honors of a village?
A railroad is the only thing we need
now to connect us with the outside
world,-one leading from Lake City
to Lynchburg would materially ad
vance our - prospects in the direction
of the proposed village..
