THE MAN NG TMES.
S. A. NETTLES, Editor.
WEDNESDAY, January 22, 1890.
Some people think that anything
bought away from home is better and
cheaper than if bought at home.
Others have a dislike of buying at
home, simply because they think it
looks and sounds bigger to have it
said that they buy everything ofT.
Others, and they are very few, buy
away from home, because they actu
ally find it cheaper to do so. This
last class is very small.
It pays to buy at home and to pat
ronize home industries. The home
merchant makes his profit it is true,
we expect him to do so, but even with
his profit, if he is the right kind of a
business man, he can afford to sell the
goods almost as cheap as they can be
bought abroad, make a fair profit for
himself, and yet we shall pay but a
fraction more than if we had bought
away from home. Our merchants
are a great convenience, and we ought
to-take that into consideration. They
invest their money, and must have a
profit on it. They keep on hand
many things that we could not well
send off for, in fact the merchant is a
necessity in every neighborhood.
But the merchant must, of course,
keep in reason in his profits. If he
makes too great profits, some ways
and means must be enforced to bring
him within reason. This is the po
sition of the Farmers' Alliance. They
claim, and with reason, too, that the
merchant has taken advantage of
their necessities, and overcharged
them and ground them down to the
earth. But is the merchant altogeth
er to blame in this matter? Does he
not know that there are men, who, if
they canwill swindle him? Isitnota
weU known fact that a great many
men in the State, yes, in Clarendon
county, who will not pay, if they can
avoid it ? We venthre the assertion
that any and every merebant in the
county can produce a list of such
dead beats. We have been in the
'county of Clarendon for a little more
than seven years, and.we have in our
affice a list of about four hundred
Quh men. Some of them "stand
well" too, but not with us, or with
any other business house who has ev
er trusted them. Now these losses
from bad men must be made good by
good men. The honest men must
pay the losses. (We use the word
~onest advisedly. Any man, who,
pyhsdebts, is, in our opinmon, a
dishonest man.) Speaking from per
isnlexperience we have quit the
c'redit business now, and have made
some money since we did so. We
can now afford to have Grand Gift
westibutons and yet make money,
but e culdnot when we were losing
7money on dead beat subscribers.
As it is with us, so it is with every
bins.Stop credit, and prices will
One of the best aims of the Alli
-4nce, the noblest aim, is to get men to
~pytheir debts, to teach them to be
hnest No Alliance man is true to
his obligation, who fails in this re
apect. Let this one purpose be ac
complished; let the standard of soci
>ety be soraised that any man who
l--efrauds his neighbor will be ostra
cised, and prices will go down. We
t believe the Alliance the greatest boon
2yet for the farmer and laborer, and if
this present year's work will show
~thatzno Alliance man will swindle his
neighbor or creditor; or if he does so,
that the Alliance will at once purge
themselves of him, credit, HoNEST
cED~ without liens, trusting to a
man's word of honor, will be the or
der of the day, and love, harmony,
Sand prosperity will prevail. This is
the end we desire to see accomplished,
and we believe this end will be accom
Clubs, unions, associations, and all
such have a tendency of bringing
men together, of making thiem feel
more interested in each other, of en
forcing the idea that all men are mu
tually interdependent, of helping each
2onue to understarnd his neighbor, of
~drawing men closer together, and this
-alliance of farmers will be of great
But we have digressed from what
we started to write about. Show the
-preference to the home merchant, and
keep as much money at home as pos
sible, if by allowing him a reasonable
profit we can do so. If, however, the
merchant charges ~too great a profit,
tell him you can do better, and buy
elsewhere. We believe our home
merchants will do as well as any oth
-ers, but there is a test, and every
man with the cash can make that
Many items have from time to time
jbeen published in the newspapers
about the evil effect of cigarette smok

grandson of a wealthy gentleman of
Terre Haute, Ind., smoked cigarettes
until he completely lost his mind and

We desire to publish a complete
directory of the Farmers' Alliance,
State, county, and sub. We have only
a few of the sub-alliances complete,
but if these alliances not fully report

We propose publishing this directory
regularly, and ask that the secretary
of each alliance will see to it that any
change in the officers or time of meet

Next week, we shall publish a more
mplete directory, including the offi

the moral condition of any people, of

The Atlanta Constitution says the
population of that city, according to
the now complete returns in the city
directory office, is over 87,000, against
77,677 last year, and 37,000 in 1880.
This remarkable growth in population
causes the Conitut~eion to indulge in
big expectations, and it predicts that in

Our Charleston Advertisers.
There are a great many of our people Who
prefer trading in Charleston, and by refer
ence to onr advertising columns they will
find the advertisements of the leading bus
iness houses in that city. And, by the wray,
it would be doing us a favor if When dealing
with one of these houses, our readers would
mention the fact that they saw the adver
tisement in THE MAmnG TIES.
Otto F. Wieters is one of the largest and
most popular grocery houses in the city.
He does an immense wholesale business,
and is in every way reliable. He does a
large business in Clarendon county, but
would not object to increasing his trade
with our merchants and large planters.
And fertilizers must be bought. The At
lantic Phosphate Company is an old house,
with a high and well merited reputation,
and one that has received a large Clarendon
patronage. They of course wish to hold
il they have gamned, and to add more.
Then jewelry, silver ware, and all such
are in demand, either for presents or for
home use. Stephen Thomas, Jr., & Bro.,
are well known in this county, both person
ally and as a reliable business firm. They
have a large and beautiful stock of goods,
such as will suit any taste or style.
Every family needs medicines, and some
families use so much that they buy at
wholesale. Dr. H. Baer is probably the
best drug house in Charleston to deal with.
He wants the trade of our country mer
chants and druggfsts.
McGahan, Brown, & Evans have one of
the largest wholesale establishments for dry
goods, notions, boots, shoes, clothing, etc.,
in the South, The house is well known and
popular, and does a very large business.
M. Drake & Son are wholesale dealers in
boots, shoes, and trunks. The house is
well established, and noted for its fair deal
ings with customers.
David Bcntschner is the popular one price

Clarendon is largely a manufacturing
county, and that long established and reli,
able house, the Charleston Iron Works
is well worthy of the patronage of our peCo

guarantee promptness and dispatch. .
A great many houses now being built in
this county, and a home building and loan

this week, ne'essarily create a demand for
doors, sash, b1.nds, etc. Wetherhorn &

and will take pleasure in quoting prices.
They fill orders promptly and carefully.
[Extract from Minutes S. C. Conference.]
Rev. Abraham Nettles.
Died, November 6th, 1889, after a
illness of ten days. He was bor
near Summerville, S. C., June 4t1
1808, joined the South Carolina An
nual Conference at its forty-niut'
session in Columbia, February, *183t
He leaves a wife and four grown ciii
dren, three of whom reside in Cla
endon county, and one in Texas. A
i older brother survives, and only a fei
weeks ago a sister died, aged eighty
seven years. Fifty-four years hav
passed since lie connected himsel
with the South Carolina Annual Cor
ference, embracing two years in tb
local ranks. For thirty-nine years h
was in the active work, but increasin
debility made it necessary for him t
occupy a superannuated relation fo
the last thirteen years of his life.
Though not educated in a technict
sense, his logical mind was well train
ed. His special intellectual strengt
appeared in the force with which hi
conducted an argument.
He was master of Methodist the
ology and vindicated it through man,
a hard fought campaign. His min<
was clear as a sun-beam, and his boi
abode in strength. He never ramble<
or scattered in his discourses, but wit]
a point in view he reached it, wit
the accuracy of an accomplishe<
When he began his ministry, fifty
four years ago, Methodism in thi!
State was weak, poor, misunderstood
and scattered. The South Carolint
Conference embraced Souti Carolina
Georgi;i, Florida, and a large part
North Carolina. There were few i.
any stations, and her circuits werz
large and laboiious;, many of then
numbering from twenty-four to twen
ty-eight appointments. It needed jus
such a warrior to lead her hosts tc
battle and to victory. His was the
mind, heart, and education for the
times, and his success was marked.
In the home circle all looked to him
as the principal. He was kind, ten
der, and loving.
The writer was often with him ii
his last illness. His faith was strong
in God, and the nearer he approached
the final crisis the more confiding,
earnest, and confident were his words
and his last utterances were not thosE
of the vanquished, but of the victor,
and with his faith reposing in God,
he fell asleep. HRsny M. MOOD.
*The forty-ninth session of the S. C. Con.
ference was held in Columbia, S. C., Feb
1835, and therefore Mr. Nctles was a mit-w

In the seve-ral counties where no interde
nominational associations are organized, th
denominational associations, unions, or con
ferences are'earne-stly solicited through thei
proper oflicers to authorize and appoin
suitable delegates to represent thema in thi
Interdenominational Sunday-school Cot

Mr. William Reynolds, of Illinois, Presi
dent of the International Sunday-schoc
Convention, wvho has been in attendanc
upon the last two South Carolina Annut
Conventions, and who, by his active partic
ipation, added so much to the success an
pleasure of said meetings, will be presen
at Columbia, and will probably bring othe
prominent workers of national and interna
tional prominence with him. Besides, a
many as possible of the leading and mos
prominent Sunday-school workers in thi
State will be in attendance; and altogethe
the most successful, the livest, and mos
largely attended Sunday-school Conventiot
in this State for years, is romised. Nothin
in the way of effrort will be spared by th<
executive committee and the local commit
tees to make this the 1:est convention eve:

Let every friend of the Sunday-scho:
cause offer fervent and constant prayer t<
the Father above that His special blessing
may be upon this meeting, and that its de
liberations may result in the upbuildin,
and extending of His kingdom in thi
State, and in the salvation of thousands c
the precious children of our land.
Every pastor and superintendent in th
State is requested to re-ad this call to hi
