THE MANNEIG TIES
Ma n3MIg, s. C.
S. A. NETTLES, Editor.
WEDNESMAY, January 29, 1890.
If we are any judge of the signs of
the times, Manning is about to begin
a new lease on prosperity, and the
deadness that has prevailed for some
time will be a thing of the past. Pro
gress and enterprise have for some
time been in the distant background,
but for the past few months things
have been brightening up, and now
the prospect for success and prosper
ity is very flattering. Our people are
coming to realize that success de
mands effort, and that prosperity
smiles not upon the careless. A. few
months ago the Bank was started.
Some had grave doubts of its suc
cess, but it has succeeded, and is a
boon to this town and county. An
other enterprise, small but calculated
to do good, is the Dime Savings Asso
ciation, which was organized two
months ago. It, too, will do good,
for while it is small, handiing only
$200 or $250 each month, yet it will
have its influence in bringing the in
terest on money to its normal state,
and in getting our people to have
confidence in joint stock institutions.
We must learn the lesson from the
fable of the bundle of sticks, and by
united effort build up our commercial
interests. Every man working for
himself, and the devil for all, will re
sult in disaster to any town.
Manning has many natural advan
tages. Our climate is fine; our water
cannot be cxcelled this side the moun
tain springs; the drainage of the town
is all that we could ask for; the health
of the town cannot be surpassed by
any town in the State; wood is very
cheap, costing only $1.50 a cord for
oak or pine; our meat and vegetable
market is well supplied, for while the
county does not by any means furnish
all we need, yet fat chickens from
North Carolina, and fresh fish and
oysters from Savannah, Charleston,
Georgetown, Wilmington, and Ports
mouth, and other things in the same
way, furnish, with pork, beef, eggs,
etc., enough to satisfy the wants of any
ordinary man. Our fruit market is
also well supplied, and the fruit is sold
at low prices. Our lands are fully the
equal of any in the State, needing
only cultivation and improvement.
We might go on enumerating many
other advantages Manning has, but
what is the use ? We all know of
them.. uw have not been puttino
our shoulders to the wheel, and push
ing forward. Manning and Claren
don only needs to be developed, and
a bright future is near at hand.
THE BUILDING AND LOAN.
A building and loan association is
one of the best institutions for devel
oping and inproving a town. It ena
bles any one at a very small expense
to own a home of his own, and any
man who owns his own home, is, all
things equal, a better citizen than the
one that rents. Sumter owes much
of her progress to building .and loan
associations, and to the gocd work
done on the building and loan plan
by some of her progressive citizens,
who had the capital to do so. And
so with Florence, Marion, Anderson,
and many other growing towns in the
Manning has felt the need of a
building and loan, and efforts have
been made to organize one, but with
out success till now. One was organ
ized in this place last week, styled the
Young Men's Building and Loan As
sociation. It is under excellent man
agement4 and will prove a blessing to
our town. The association will be
able to loan out about $500 each
month, to be used in building in the
town of Manning or in some other
part of the county of Clarendon.
We sincerely hope that the spirit
of opposition frequently manifested
in this place will, in this most excel
lent enterprise, be allowed to remain
quiet. Help it all you can. If you
cannot take twenty-five shares, take
two or three, or even one share. It is
a good investment viewed in any
light. It will enable the borrower,
by paying monthly but a little more
than his usual rent, to own in a few
years a home of his own. Owing to
the plan of collecting principal and
interest monthly, and immediately
putting it out again at interest, and
keeping up this plan every month for
the life of the association, the in
vestor will, by careful calculation, be
able to realize in seventy-five months,
double his investment. It thus bene
fits on every side and in every way.
We hope our citizens will give this
most worthy enterprise their hearts
co-operation and support.
Leaving out of the calculation, un
seasonable weather, disasters and oth
er matters beyond human control, it is
safe to say that anything which has~
real merit; for which there is a need,
or want; or for which a want can be
created; and which sells at a reasona
ble price, can be profitably advertised
in the newspapers.
When doctors see that one of their
patients is about to die, they say thai

Our Charleston Advertisers.
The M TiM.Es is one of the very
best printed papers in the State. Its adver
tisements are tastefully set, atiractive, easily
read, and are read by almost everybody in
the county. The best and most enterpris
ing and progressive advertisers see this
great advantage, and as a natural result, the
TIMES contains the advertisements of the
leading business houses that desire the all
year-around trade of Clarendon. If our
read.:rs will, in trading with these houses,
remember to mention the fact that they saw
their advertisement in the TDiEs it would
be doing us a valuale favor. But most
people never think of this. It would help
us, and gratify the advertiser.
Last week we mentioned several promi

attention to the following sterling Charles

merits for the year, and few firms are more

large capital invested, and, as far as we
know, have given satisfaction to our people.
They wish to increase their trade in Clar
endon, and will offer as great inducements
as any house in the city. By all means
give them a chance.
A very popular house with our people is
that firm of young and enterprising whole

sell all kinds of choice family groceries and
claim that they cannot be undersold. They

The case has attracted scarcely less inter

should be applied. When this is
thoroughly dry add a coat of vainish.
Should the walls be plastered, get a
cheap paper, generally tan, terra-cotta,
maroon, or gilt should predominate
in the figures. Make ordinary boiled
starch, put it on the wall with a wvhitc
wash brush, one width at a time.
With the assistance of one person,
any woman can paper the room.
Puft twvo coats of terra-cotta paint
on the floor, and then add one of;
hard-wood finish, this last prevents
dust from adhering. When dry, such
a iloor can be wined over with cold
water, in a few; !tiutes and be made
to look as fresh as when first painted.
