THE MANIN TIMES.'
S. A. NETTLES, Editor.
WEDNESDAY, October 9,1889.
The Confederate Survivor' Associ
ation of Clarendon county met last
Monday, in the court house, at 12.30
o'clock, Mr. W. J. Clark, presi
dent. Rev. H. W. Mahoney opened
the meeting with prayer. On account
of the short time in which notice of
the meeting was given, there was a
small attendance, and it was decide(
to adjourn till Monday Oct. 21st,
when it is hoped there will be a large
This is a subject that ought to in
terest us all, and every Confederate
veteran should endeavor to be present.
Let the notice be generally extended,
talk about it to your neighbor, get
him interested in the meeting, and
let the court house be crowded with
old Confederate soldiers at the next
meeting. The main object of the
meeting is to canvass the list of pen
sioners, and decide if all on that.list
are under the law entitled to receive
a pension; also, to see if all who are
really deserving a pension are among
.the list of pensioners.
Another object, and one we hope will
be carried out, is to form a Survivors'
Association. The company reunions
are good things and ought to be kept
up, but the desire is to go a step
further, and to have a County Surviv
ors' Association, an organization com
posed of all in the county who served
in the war. Such an organization will
tend to draw the old soldiers closer
together, and will prove a source of
great pleasure to its members.
Let everybody come out to the
meeting next Monday week, October
TOO MAM LUNATICS.
A week or two ago the wife of Nel
son Prince raised enough money to
pay her way to Columbia to see her
husband, who had been sent from
this county to the Lunatic Asylum.
When she got to the Asylum, she
says the superintendent told her that
Nelson was not crazy but was only
sich, that he was not a fit subject for
the Asylum, but that he was suffering
with dyspepsia and cancer of the
stomach, and that if she would she
bould take him back home with her.
SShe did bring him back with her and
Now, whods to blame for thi"'"
the facts in the case are as represent
ed to us, and a prominent gentleman
.of the county is our informant, then
the two physicians who conducted the
examination are the ones to blame.
In fact, in every case, if any error is
-u made in sending any one to the Asy
~lum, the two physicians who examine
the patient are the only persons re
sjonsible. The law gives them all
~the power, and they should conduct
.the examination with great care.
Peasons who are not crazy should
not be sent to the asylum. It has
cost this county nearly $500 to send
lunatics to the Asylum the past year !
he probate judge gets $3 in each
cse; the two physicians get $5 each
for their examination; the trial justice
-gets $1; and then if the -pbysicians
decide that the party is a lunatic thd
sheriff gets about $24 for carrying
him to the Asylum.
The matter ought to be looked in
to. It really appears as if every color
ed person who is severely afflicted
and is suffering great pain is repre
setdas a fit subject for the Asylum.
Iisbeginning to be looked upon by
many of the colored people as a con-.
aiderable distinction to, be sent to the
Asylum, just as with a large part of
them it makes a hero of one to serve
a term in the penitentiary. If every
county in.the State were to send as
many lunatics(?) to the Asylum as
Clarendon does, a new asylum would
-at once have to be built. In some
cases a little medical attention would
be all that is needed; in others a good
sound thrashing would be the proper

and shakes himself and says: "I'm a~

then makes the patient look into the

This magnificent literary production rep
resents a superb, unique and most remark
able new book. The author whose mind is
strong in imagine ion, happy in word paint
ing, spriiles the glittering pages of this
unparalleled work with the most chaste
and beautiful gems of thought, jeweled
with all that is great, good, pure, and noble,
in the glowing freshness of living reality.
When he writes of God and the soul, of
Heaven and its ineffable bliss, he touches
heights of unsurpassable magnificence that
makes you feel like Moore's Peri, as if yon
stood looking of the "Pearly Gates."
Though he leads to mountain heights, he
has also the daintiest dells of restful and
tender experience, full of heart's-ease and
violets, where the simplest minds andi quiet
est natures may rest and drink sweet
draughts from the river of God's love.
Through the whole book rings the happy
laughter of cheerful Christianity and moral
anecdotes, thick as stars that fleek the frosty
blue of winter's midnight sky, shine out on
every page. These anecdotes, fresh, thrill
ing and delightful. dealing as they a > with
every plhase of human experience, bring
out the author's ii aning most beautifully.
They are carefully gathered from every his
tory and langunage and scattered thro igh
the book like pearls on a royal robe. In
fact, the entire book is a wonder of value
and interest, such as was never seen before.
This magnificent volume, comprising
over 700 massive octavo pages, is printed
from large, clear, new type, suited to every
degree of vision, on extra line stuper eaien
dered paper of admirable finish. It is elab
nrately-ilhustrated withi the most charming
steel plate engravings, designed and engrav
ed by artists of wvorld renown, at an expense
of manv~thousand' dals It is substanti

THE ALLIANCE EXPOSED.
Secrets of the Order leiealed--A New.
ber Teils How the Maciine is Run.
Farmer McKeever told the Elber
ton, Ga., ,ar how lie was initiated ii
the Farmers' Alliance as follows:
You see before yon, explained Mc
Keever, a newlvy-iade, but only half
fledged Farmers' Alliance man. Yot
know that during my checkered ca.
reer I have been a regular jiner, and
eagerly went into every secret organ
ization that came along. I have rid
den the Masonic goat, climbed tbc
greased pole of the Odd Fellows, been
thrown down the Knjight of Honor
stairsteps and fell sprawling over the
fences built in my path by the Gran
gers, and actually took a drink of wa
ter when I joined the Good Temnplars;
but these initiating programmes were
as downy beds of ease compared with
the trying ordeal through which I
passed yesterday at the hands of the
Farmers' Alliance. I had formed an
idea that as soon as I joined the Alli
ance the mortgage against my farm,
stock, and crop would n:oulder into
ashes, iule that lo:g-standing store
account would disappear from the
face of the books; that I would have
the privilege of fixing my own prices
on goods, and force the merchant to
pay me twenty cents a pound for cot
on. t o I made up my mind to join
the Alliance, and yesterday, donning
my Sunday-go-to-meeting clothes, re
paired to the school house, where the
order met, and sent in my application
by a neighbor who was a charter
member. In due season the gkJ tid
ings were conveyed to ine that I had
been balloted for and accepted, and
boiling over with eager gratification,
followed my conductor into the wood
room adjoining the main building.
Here my guard made our presence
known by picking up a section of
fence rail and rapping three times on
the door. This gentle signal was an
swered by three raps from within and
"Who comes there ?"
"A horny-handed son of toil, grop
ing in darkness, and anxious to have
the light of the Alliance shed upon
him," replied my guide.
"Break down the barricade that
stands between a Brother Farmer
and light, and admit the applicant,"
spoke a sonorous voice from within.
Just at this instant the old door,
which had been removed from its
hinges, was kicked over, and striking
me on the top of the head, raised this
lump you see here. I thought it was
an accident at that time, and so made
up my mind to grin and bear the
Two stout men stepped forth and
violently seizing me by the arm. I was
carried into the middle of the room.
I saw that the house was pretty well
filled with spectators.. Sitting yu the
top of a cotton bale was the Grand
Mogul of the order, as I afterwards
learned. On his right a section of
rail fence had been built and astride
of this was another officer. On his
left sat a third official with a pile of
guauo sacks under him, which I be
lieve was the Grand Secretary. I no
ticed that all thme oilicers and their as
sistants were in their shirt--slceves,
and wor jeans pants held up by one
susender each. These parties, TI af
terards discovered, represented the
present poverty-stricken condition of
the farmers. In one corner stood six
men, arrayed in their best store
clothes and plug hats, and each had a
feather pillow rammed into his pants
to represent high living, who were to
act as merchants. 1 had scarcely time
to take a hasty glance around the
room when a fellow stepped up and
dashed about a pint of guano into my
face, and before I had time to wipe
my eves or~ spit out thme stuff, my sight
was obscured by an old guano sack
that didn't smell, by any means like
te last rose of summer-being bound
over my orbs of vision. I was then
led three times around the roomi and
halted in front of the Grand Tycoon
on thme cotton bale.
"Benighted brot~hcr farmer, who

within the 'sacred precincts of the
Farmers' Alliance, and in order to in
delibly fix upon your mind great
truths, we will proceed to carry you
through the ordeal of initiation. That
handful of guano cast into yor cycs
is intended to show you the folly of
an undue use of this expensive com
modity. A limited use of guano in
the right place is proper; but you wit
not, I hope, soon forget ~the lessor

told to go stright forward at a brish
trot. This I did, hut soon ran against
a ten rail fence that had been secretly
built in mym path, anmd in the fall wm~
skinned from head to hecls. I wae
soon brought up standing amin, thie

ees, and I wvas carried before th<

the time we made around thlat roor
wnnuld shame a rae lione. I hue'
I had to keep up or my neck woul
be broke. It had always been a my.
terr to me how a steer could turn hi
yoke, but it is no longer a secret. Th
bull turned his twice and I turne
mine three times. I yelled for som
one to heard us, but the louder I ho
lered the faster the little bull trave]
ed. Just as I gave myself up fo
lost we were brought to a stand-stil
the yoke removed from my bruise
and bleeding neck, and I was agai:
led before the Grand Tycoon, wh,
consolingly addressed mc thusly:
"enighted brother, seeking wis
domo, tho lesson you have just re
ceived is to im)ress upon your min<
the sad truth that you are but a beas
of burden for the commercial world
The merchant has a yoke of servitud<
upon your neck, and you - can only
look for relief to a Farmers' Alliance
man. We will now administer to you
another degree showing the difference
between cash and credit."
I was again taken in hand by two
merchants, who forcibly tied a strong
cord around each of my thumbs, and
in a twinkling I was suspended to a
ridge-pole. That I yelled with pain
and begged for mercy, it is needless
to add. One of my torturers demand
ed to know how much cash I would
pay him to be released. I offered all
the money in nv- pocket, which was
35 cents. He agreed to let me down
for $1 cash or $10 on credit, secured
by a mortgage, lien, deed of gift and
waiver note of my farmin, stock, wife
and chibiren. I eagerly accepted, and
on being relea3 Ad stepped up to the
table, and in the presence of two wit
nesses signed tWe paper. I was then
led before the olicer astride the worm
fence, who explained the Thumb
Swinging degree as follows:
"Benighted brother, the ordeal
which you have just passed through
is administered for the purpose of re
minding you that there is a broad
difference between buying for cash
and buying on credit. One dollar in
hand would have saved you from all
that misery; but for a lack of the
ready cash you were forced to pay ten
times the required sum. This is the
last degree we will administer to you
at this meeting. There are yet sev
enteen other degrees required, illus
trating the different trials in a farm
ers' life, before you are a full-blown
member of the Alliance. I will state
that they are somewhat severer than
the initiations through which you havc
passed, but you will muster np the
resolution to bear them."
Well, continued McKeever, I aiy
entirely satisfied with my Alliance ex
perience, and I don't think there is r
log chain in Oglethorpe county strong
enough to draw me to another meet
