Manning Literary Club
The young ladies and gentlemen
interested in the formation of a Lit

last Monday evening at the residence
of Mr. 3. T. Stukes. The committee
appointed at last meeting to draft a
constitution and by-laws for the or
ganzation made their report, which
was adopted after some alterations
and amendments. Immediately after
the adoption of the constitution an
election of offeers was gone into,
with the follewing result: President,
3. M. Knight; Vice President, -Miss
Lucie Barron; Secretary, Miss Marie
Graves; Treasurer, I IBagnal; Critic,
Miss Sadie Householder; Librarian,
R B. Loryea. The Club is composed
of good material and is capable of
doing excellent work. The next meet
ing is to be held next Monday even

Was Not Cowhided.
Mr. J. H. King asks us to say that
Mr.KH L. Slawson did not cowhide himz
as we published last week that it was
reported, but that it was an assault
and battery with an intent to kill, and
gives us the following as the facts in
the case: On Sunday morning, Oct.
6th, about 9 o'clock, H. L. Slawson,
accompanied by Wash Anderson,
drove into his yard, and accused him
of circulating a slandercus report
about his (Slawson's) sister. Mr.
King said he had only repeated what
he had heard a number of others say.
Slawson then cursed him, said he had
come with the intention of killing
him, and jumped out of the road
cart. King told him he was sick, un
able to fight him, and not responsible
for the gossip of the community.
Slawson then jumped on King, jerk.
ed him down on the ground, and
struck him with his fist several times
on the head. King managed to gel
up, and retreated towards his house.
Siawson followed him, and as he was
going up the steps, cut his hat in two
places. King forbade them from en
tering his house, but both Slawsor
and Anderson followed him into his
house, and after they got into the
house Slawson struck King once or
twice on his head with a shingle.
Slawson and Anderson then left the
ouse and went off. Mr. King's fam
ly was not at home. Mr. King de
sires us to say for him that had Mr.
lawson approached him on another
day than Sunday, or had he ap
proached him in a manner different
from what he did, he would have
iven him any satisfaction he wantpd,
and in any way that he wanted, but
that he considers that a great and un
ue adantae was taken of him.
At the recent municipal election in
Indianapolis the Democracy carried
President Harrison's ward with a
gain of 248 votes. "This result,"
says the Detroit Free Press, "verifies
the old saying that we sometimes dis
trust people because we don't know
them, but oftener because we do."
The woodland of the United States
now covers 450,000,000 acres, or
about 26 per cent of the land area.
Of this not less than 25,000,000 acres
are cut over annually, a rate of de
struction that will bring our forests to
an end in eighteen years if there is
no replanting. While the wood grow
ing annually in the forests of the
United States amounts to 12,000,000,
000 cubic feet, the amount cut annu
ally is 24,000,000,000 cubic feet, and
this does not include a vast amount
destroyed by fire. The country's sup
ply of timber, therefore, is being de
pleted at least twice as fast as it is
being reproduced, and this is another
way of showing that a timber famine
is approaching rapidly.

A Georgia Lunatic Murdered.
SAvmxsAH, Ocr. 19.-Last Sdnday
Shadrack Walthour, a negro prisoner
in Liberty -county's jail, was found
dead. Walthour was one of the suc
cessors of the false Messiah, who set
four hundred of the negroes in Lib
erty crazy last June and July. Shad
rack proclaimed himself King Solo
mon and was arrested as a lunatic and
jailed. An inquest was held on his
body on Monday. Two negro pris
oners, one of whom was his cellmate,
swore that Deputy Sheriff Dean kill
ed Solomon by striking him with
brass knuckles because he was reading
the Bible too loud. The negro's
skull was fractured. Dean disap
peared and the solicitor-general has
no information of his capture. The
case will be investigated by the grand
Judge Lynch vs. Judge Law.
For pure "cussedness" human na
ture has some streaks of exquisite de
sign. Put twelve men in a jury :box
and they will refuse to hang a man
although the proof of his guilt covers
him with the hue of Hades. Join
them to a lynching-bee party and
they will vote the accused-innocent
or guilty-to death with relentless
determination. It is owing to this
unaccountable idiosyncrasy that the
balance is kept pretty even between
the legal hangings that don't occur
and the illegal hat ings that do.

Negro Supremacy at Harvard College.
Bosros, October 19.-The senior
class of Harvard College has elected
Clement Garrett Morgan, a colored
man, as class orator. The election
was hotly contested, but Morgan re
ceived a substantial majority, about
270 men voting. He entered college
with little means, and during his
freshman year worked at gid hours
in a barber shop. Since then his
rank as a student has brought him
beneficiary money from the college.
Last year as a competitor for the
Boyleston prizes he carried his audi
ence by storm and won the first
The Daughter of the LConfederacy.
NEW Ona..s, Oct. 19.-Scarcely
any young lady in the country is bet
ter known by reputation than Miss
Winnie Davis, daughter of Jefferson
Davis, but more generally known as
the "Daughter of the Confederacy."
This young lady leaves on Tuesday
next for New York, whence she will
in a few days sail for Europe. Miss
Davis goes as the guest of Mrs. Pu
litzer, of New York, who takes her
abroad in the hope of restoring her
to health. For the past year, or, in
fact, since she made her tour of the
Northern States, Miss Davis has not
been in good health. Her eyesight
troubles her seriously, and she suffers
from a constant pain in the side. All
literary work and even reading has
been abandoned. It is thought that
six months at the health resorts of
Germany, prefaced by a winter on the
Riviera, will restore her to perfect
health. Her mother is in New Or

The Greatest Corn Crop Ever Grown In
(Charleston Worl, Ocd. 23.)
Over twenty million bushels of
That's the yield for South Carolina
It's the biggest yield since the war.
Captain "Barefoot" Brown, the ge
nial castodian of the museum of the
Agricultural Department, stated to
the World represantative to-day that
the reports from correspondents all
over the State have been collated and
show that the yield for the season
just past is 20,700,000 bushels, an un
precedentedly large crop. The next
largest crop made in South Carolina
since the war was in 1882 when the
yield reached 17,000,000 bushels.
This remarkable crop would have
reached to 22,000,000 had it not been
for freshets and overflows. It shows
that the farmers of the State are, gen
erally speaking, in a prosperous con
dition. According to this estimate of
the crop, which is official, there would
be about twenty bushels of corn to
each man, woman, and child in the
State if it were equally dividled.

Farmers are gathering the fruits of
their toil. Food crops are more prolif
ic than usual, and, thanks to the Far
mer's Alliance, owners of gins prepare
cotton for market, and deliver it to
railroads ready for transportation, for
less money than ever b'efore.
In some places wagon roads have
received more attention than usual,
and when men get their minds well
off the jute and tariff questions, it is
hoped they will then abate the nui
sance of bad roads, which, after all, is
a greater tax upon farmers than jute
and tariff combined.
The portion of Black river within
Williamsburg county is now crossed
by four bridges. Soon another will be
built at "Bland's Old Ferry," where
Marion's men crossed and got ahead
of the British in their-retreat after the
battle at the "Lower Bridge." This
last bridge was so called to distin
guish it from the bridge higher up the
stream at Kingstree.
Recently a negro man went from
this- section to Manning carrying
with him a few dollars. He returned
with his system and a flask well
charged with whiskey, and an empty
pistol. In meddling with a mule his
flask was emptied, but his system was
not so fortunate. Pistols and flasks
are harmless things in themselves.
The evil lies in the loading and un
loading, always excepting a mule's
way of unloading a flask. When
men, pistols, and whiskey get well
nixed up together, the pistols charged
with lead and powder, and the men
with whiskey, .the combination beats
jute tariff and bad roads all to pieces.

How it Will be Done.
Five prominent gentlemen from different
sections of the county will be requested to
give away the prizes in the following man
ner, which is exactly the same plan used at
our last Grand Gift Distribution the 4th of
These gentlemen will place in one box a
number of tickets equal to the number of
subscribers who have paid up to Sep. 1,
1890, all of which tickets will be blank ex
cept the prize tickets. They will then place
in another similar box an equal number of
tickets, containing the names of the paid up
subscribers, one name on each ticket. After
the tickets have been carefully inspected
and placed in the boxes, they will be thor
oughly shaken up and mixed together, un
til the committee is satisfied that everything
is fair and just. Then the drawieri'll
begin. Two little boys about four or five
years old will be blindfolded, and one will
draw from the box containing the names of
the paid up subscribers and the other from
the box containing the tickets. The com
mittee will at every'drawing (one from each
box) inspect the tickets that have been
drawn and announce the result. For in
stance, suppose the little boys have each
drawn a ticket from their respective boxes.
The name drawn by one little boy is Always
Loseum, and the ticket drawii by the other
is a blank. That means Mr. A. Loseum has
failed to secure a prize. The little boys draw
again. The name is Lucky Fellow, and the
prize ticket has $10 in gold on it., That
means Mr. L. Fellow has secured the $10 in
gold for his prize. The drawing will thus
continue till all the prizes have been given
. This plan seems to us as fair as possible,
and to have the least objections. Our sub
scribers may rest satisfied that everything
will be done in fairness.

CATAR2RH CAN'T BE CUBED
with local application, as they cannot reach
the seat of the disease. Catarah is a blood
or constitutional disease, and in order to
cure it you have to take internal remedies.
Hall's Catarrh Cure is taken internally and
acts directly on the blood and mucus sur
face. Hall's Catarrh Cure is no quack med
icine. It was prescribed by one of the best
physicians in this country for years, and is
a regular prescription. It is composed of
the best tonics known, combined with the
best blood purifiers, acting directly on the
mucus surface. The perfect combination
of the two ingredienits is what produces
such wonderful results in curing catarrh.
