We publish in this issue of the
Trvms a sworn statement of the con
dition of the Bank of Manning. The
statement demonstrates beyond a
doubt that the Bank is a fixed insti
tution in our town, and will prove a
paying investment to its stockholders.
The bank commenced business on the
second day of September last with a
paid in capital of about six thousand
dollars, the balance of the subscribed
capital ($30,000) was made payable in
four instalments: the first on the first
of October and the last on the first of
this month; so it will be observed that
the bank has been working on a very
little capital during the four months
of its existence. The people of Clar
endon should patronize the bank, not
only because it is a home institution,
but because it will be to their advan
tage to do so. Money can be had on
as good terms as can be got anywhere.
If you want to send off money go to
the bank and buy a check: it is the
safest and cheapest way of sending it.
The bank also cashes checks and
drafts at a small rate of exchange.
Collections made on good terms and
money forwarded promptly.

County Alliance Meeting.
The people of Clarendon have nev
er seemingly been more deeply inter
ested in the success of any cause than
are the farmers now in the success of
the Alliance. The court house last
Friday was well filled with Allianc

lished below there was a large num
ber of visitors, and all interested in
the meeting. We are glad to see this,
and if the farmers will only stick to
gether, work together, work as a unit,
let all their energies be consolidated
for a common good, great and good
results will naturally follow. No on
who was present in the meeting of the
County Alliance last Friday could fail
to catch some of the enthusiasm of

President Jas. E. Tindal made a
long and interesting speech on gener
al subjects, especially urging upon the
members the importance of keeping
their obligations. Everything said
and done in the Alliance is secret.
The Alliance cannot afford to have
its secrets divulged, and any member
who discloses anything said or done
in the Alliance should at once be ex
pelled from the order. The secrets of
the Alliance, whether in the form of
passwords, grips, or the private prices
of groceries and guanos, should all
be held sacred. If the members do not
thus act, they cannot and will not be
able to get wholesale cash prices. The
wholesale merchants will be afraid to
give them. Let every member learn
to hold his tongue, and learn that si
lence is an indication of the wise
Mr. Jas. E. Davis, county trustee
for the State exchange, made his re
port. It was very encouraging. The
idea is if the home merchants will sell
right, then to invariably patronize
them, but if they don't sell right to
buy through the exchange. Alliance
men will be able this year to buy fer
tilizers cheaper than ever before.
The Alliance unanimously adopted
a resolution pledging every Alaane
man to use cotton bagging the com
ing year. Jute bagging i~s a thing of
Ithe past, and our merchants will act
wisely not to buy any more of it.

TO MRS. INEZ TRAMEs, MAINING, R. C.
Pledged is the faith, inscribed the vow,
Another's life thou must endow;
By sacred word thy fate is bound
By Hymen's silken tie.
Thou'lt cheer his home, and guide his way,
And cause to tall the brightest ray
That lights him on his journey here
In true felicity.
Thy souls like Heaven's aerial bow,
Blend every light within their glow
While journeying up life's rugged steep
'Midst joys and sorrows known.
For grief divided with thy heart
Were sweeter far than joy apart:
Through fortunes rise, or her decline,
Thy hearts shall beat as one.
May naught thy joyous hearts divide,
But on thy years serenely glide
With prospects brightening as they speed
And all to love be given.
And when life's happy journey's o'er,
Thou'lt part to meet and part no more
On that "sweet celestial shore,"
There live and love in Heaven.

Legal Rate of Interest.
The last Legislature changed the maxi
mum rate cf interest from ten to eight per
cent. The following is the text of the act:
No greater rate of interest than seven per
cntum per annum shall be- charged, taken,
ageed upon or allowed upon-any contract
arising in this State for the hiring, lending
or use of money or other commodity, except
upon written contracts wherein, by express
agreement, a rate of interest not exceeding
eight per cent. may be charged. No person
or corporption lending or advancing money
or other commodity upon a greater rate of
interest shall be allowed to recover in any
Court of tbis State any portion of the inter
est so unlawfully charged; and the princi
pal sum, amount or value so lent or advanc
ed, without any interest, shall be deemed
and taken by the C. -:ts of this State to be
the true legal debt er measure of damages
to all intents and purposes whatsoever, to
be recovered without costs.
Provided that the provisions of this act
shall not apply to contracts or agreements
entered into, or discounts or arrangements
made prior to the first of March, 1890.

Advertisements Are Read.
It is a fact that newspaper readers do not
slight the advertisements. They have
come to realize that the advertisements in a
newspaper represents the goods which the
merchants have for sale, and they take
pains to familiarize themselves with what
merchants have to offer. Moreover, the
constituency of a paper are very apt to be
governed by what they read in their own
paper. If a paper is accepted in its politi
cal, moral, and intellectual tone, as our
horne paper, its advertisers share the re
spect and confidence bestowed upon the pa.
per itself. This is an important fact for
advertisers to remember; at the same time
it calls for the exercise on the part of the

Sound Political Advice.
The N.Y. Herald, the ablest conducted
newspaper in America, in commenting bn
the great speech deliveied by the late H. W.
Grady in Boston, a few days before his
"A remarkable phenomenon demands the
attentiofi of the leaders of colored public
opinion in the South and North. They can
not prudently shut their eyes or the eyes of
their constituency-the colored people of
the Union--to the sympathy and applause
given by all New England and a greut part
of the North in the recent speech of Mr.
Grady, of Georgia, at a Boston banquet.
"Scheming and reckless politicians in
Congress may contrive Federal election
bills--they cannot pass: and if they do they
will be repealed under stress of public in
dignation in the North. The colored leaders
in the South who tell their people that there
is help for them in Federal legislation mis
lead them, and are either ignorant them
selves or reckless demagogues. The colored
people of the South must help themselves
out of any troubles they may have. They
must become a part of the Southern body
politic and not an extraneous mass, cohering
for purposes foreign to the general objects
of their fellow citizens.
"It is the duty of the intelligent and con
scientious leaders of the colored South to
tell their people all over the South plainly
that they have no help to expect from North -
ern sympathy; that Federal election laws,
even if they should pass, would not benefit
them, and would be repealed in two years
under the stress of Northern indignation
and opposition, and that they ought no lon
ger to allow themselves to be banded to
gether in their States in a 'solid' mass, not
forming a political party, but only a politi
cal mob. It is their duty to teach their peo
ple that they must vote as they think and
not as Republican demagogues urge them
"The solid South consists of two parts,
the solid white voters and the solid black
voters. But what do the blacks gain-what
have they gained by this solidity? Nothing
except here and there a postoffice or some
other petty Federal place flung to them by
their Republican frie-ds as a bone is flung
to a dog. It is time for the colored voters
to consider their situation and to abandon
the false course which has brought upon
them, as many of them asscrt, maltreatment
in the South; but, what is far more serious
for them, indifference and contempt in the
North, and in the house of their friends."

A Wonderful Recovery.
Mrs. Geo. P. Smoote, a highly cultivated
and estimable lady of Prescott, Ark., writes
under date of April 22, 1889: "During the
summer of 1877 my eyes became inflamed
and my stomach and liver almost hopelessly
disordered. Nothing I ate agreed with me.
I took chronic diarrhcea, and for some time
my life was despaired of by my family. The
leading physicians of the country were con
sulted, and the medicines administered by
them never did any permanent good, and I
lingered between life and death, the latter
being preferable to the agonies I was en
during. In May, 1888, I became disgusted
with physicians and their medicines. . I
dropped them all, and depended solely on
Swift's Specific (S. S. S.) a few bottles of

was in constant agony caused from excruci
ating pains in my back, liver, and stomach.
I tried every medicine I could hear of, but
without receiving any relief. My attention
was then called to S. S. S. I tried five bot
tles of it, and received the most gratifying
results. I am to-day as healthy and sound
a man as you will find anywhere, and I owe
it all to the curative properties to be found
in Swift's Specific (S. S. S.)

The rocks are the bones of the divine
body, the soil is the flesh, the metals are the
nerves and veins; the tide, wind, rain,
clouds, frost, and dew arc all caused by its
respirations, pulsations and exhalations.
Originally the mountains rose to the firma
ment, and the seas covered the mountains
to their tops. At that time there was; in the
divine body no life besides the divine life.
Then the waters subsided; small herbs grew,
and in the lapse of cycles developed into
shrubs and trees. As the body of man, un
washed for years, breeds vermin, so the
mountains, unlaved by the seaK, bred worms
and insects, greater creatures developing
out ofjlesser. Beetles in the course of ages
became tortoises, earth-worms became ser
pents, high-flying insects became birds,
some of the turtle-doves became pheasants,
egrets became cranes, and wild-cats became
tigers. The praying mantis was by degrees
transformed into an ape, and some of the
apes became hairless. A hairless ape made
a fire by striking crystal upon a rock, and,
with the spark struck out, igniting the dry
grass. With the fire they cooked food, and
by eating warm victuals they grew large,
strong and knowing, and were changed into
Pimples. blotehes, scaly skin, ugly spots,
sores and ulcers, abscesses and tumors, un
