The Ne,w York Comedy Company
played in Manning Monday and Tues
day nights, and expected to play again
to-night, but owing to the death of
Mr. WV. J. Clark they decided to leave
and come back again in about three
weeks. This is a good troupe. They
played M'liss Monday night to a good
house, and their performance so pleas
ed our people that last night they
were greeted with a larger audience
'to see East Lynne, which was finely
played. The conduct of the troupe
while here was genteel, and we are
satisied when they come back they
will receive a large audience.

order, but men that will also work tc
beautify and improve the town. Im
prove ments are going on daily ir
other towns, and there is no reason
why Manning should be held back. It
is true that it takes money to build a
town hall and open streets, but we are
convinced our citizens would willingly
be taxed if they can be assured that
their money will be spent in such a
manner as will give them pleasure tc

Success in Sumter.
Mr. Mitchell Levi, of Santee, and
formerly of Manning, has inoved to
the city of Sumter, where he has en
tered into a copartnership with his
brother Ferdinand. The style of the
firm is Levi Brothers. These gentle
men are thoroughly known to the
people of Clarendon, having been
born and reared in their midst, there
fore any words of praise would be en
tirely unnecessary from us. As busi
ness men these young gentlemen have
had the very best of opportunities.
Having received a fine business train
ing they are fully equipped to coi
pcte with any set of merchants in
Sumter or elsewhere. Both of them
are thoroughly acquainted with the
leading business inarkets, anud having
the necessary qualifin tions to conduct
a first class mercantile establishment
they propose by their push and ener
gy to be leaders in their line.
The Levi Brothers specially invite
their old friends of Clarendon to vis
it them and give their immense stocks
a thorough inspection. They have
on hand and are constantly receiving
large stocks of general merchandise
which they purchased to suit the
times, and they propose to give their
customers the advantage of purchas
ing first class goods at "haird pan"
The people of Clarendon would do
well to give their young friends a call
whenever they go to Sumter, and by
doing so we feel assured that their
visits will be often repeated, and they
will receive that prompt and courte
ous attention that is characteristic of
Better Late Than Never.
In the language of one whose name hais
been handed down to us and whose name
we propose to leave behind, so that future
generations may learn to admire the man
that gave vent to the expression, wec will re
mark: "Wonders don't stop ceasing."
Last Saturday night while the good peo
pie of New Zion were lying in their neds,
some wondering what kind of a sermon

following day, others whether or not she
would make a better show at church than
Miss or Mrs. So and So, or what kind of
clothes to wear, Mr. and Mrs. Anderson
Boykin were celebrating their wooden wed
ding. The happy couple were married just
ten years without the slightest ripple of an
noyance, not even that annoyance of having
one's slumbers disturbed by the squallings
of a colicky baby, or having one's ribs
punched in twain by a sudden call for par
egorie, or even a gentle request to get up
some cold winter's nIght and walk the little
one to sleep. This they have sadly missed
for their whole married life, ten years, but
time has wrought a change, and no more
will this couple be troubled with this terri
Invitations were sent out on last Saturday
night to a very few selected friends, inviting
them to at once attend the woodlen wveddinig

Among the imiprovemeont clubs for the
winter, let us hope the reading aloud class
has its place. If one has a husky vo'ice or
a feeble one, if he forms his words away
back in his throat, instead of on the tip of
his tongue, if one is careless and slovenly
in his pronunciation, if one is awkward and
bashful and afraid to open his mo'uth before
folks, nothing will correct all these defects
so like a charm as readinig aloud. Real de
liberately, distinctly, opening your mouth
sufficiently to let the sounds out clearly.
Always have a eritic in your class, or het
all the class criticise the reader. Note care
fully, but with the utmost good nature al

justly held up to ridicule ini Europe. Listen

William J. Clark died suddenly at his;
home in this place this morning, aged fifty
five years. le attended the play by the.
comedy company, last night at tie school
building, but complained of feeling unwell,
dL sat in the rear of the hall. After the:
play was over, he could not be found.
Search was mate at his house and at the
liouiss of several of his, children, but with
out succesZs. He was finally found back of
a snmall building in rear of the school house,
in an iusensible condition. There were
si"ns that he had vomited, and it is suppos
ed a stroke of apoplexy or heart disease had
rendered him inscnsible. In falling a gash
was cut under hiis eye, on the cheek bone.
He was carried home, and died about six
o'clock this morning.
Mr. Clark was born in Charleston
in 1834, and came to Manning in 18.58.
le entered the war with Co. I., 23rd
S. C. V., (Sprott Guards,) and for most of
the time served as hospital steward. He
was sheriff of this county from 1870 to 1876.
He was intendant of the town in 1880, and
was warden for several terms. He was
prominent in Masonic circles, and was, we
are told, the only Knight Templar in this
county. He was Chancellor Commander of
the K. of P. for several terms, and was at
the time of his death holding that office.
le was president of the County Survivors'
Association. For the last fifteen years he
has been book-keeper for Louis Loyns. -

Presbyterin church to-morrow afternoon
at 3 o'clock, and the body will be interred

A Fire in Manning.
About one o'clock to-day the Tgram
residence, occnpicd by Mr. N. M.
Johnson, caught on fire, caused, it
i.s supposed, from a defective chimney.
The tire was not discovcred until it had
worked its way through t he roof. In prompt
response to the alarm of lire a number of
citizens brough1t out the hook and ladder
truc:, and went to work fighting the flames.
After the hardest kind of work the fire was
gotten under control, and the house was
finally saved, after being damaged about
S250. The house was insured, but
the furnituare, which belongs to Mr. John
son, Was not insured, and is very much
damaged. Much credit is due to those that
worked at the fire, and espcclly so to some
of the members of the New York Comedy
Company, one of whom, Mr. Frank Nei
berger, in getting on the roof fell from it to
the ground, and afterwards worked so faith
ful that he fainted. In appreciation of his
services the town council awarded him the
license fee collected from this company. The
of e scliol gave to tl.e members
of the troape who worked so faithfully the
rent the, company hal paid for the nie of
the school building. The little bov. of the
town rendered valuable service by keeping
a good supply of r;ater on hand to extin

Big Fire in Sumiter.
Yesterday morning (Tuesday, Jan. 28th)
about four o'clock the store of R. P. Mona
ghan, in Sumter, was discovered to be on
fire. The fire is supposed to have originated!
in the office of the C. S. & N. R. Rl., which
was located on the second floor of this build
ing, and in which a kerosene lamp was
burning. When discovered the fire
had made such progress that scarcely
a hundred dollars worth of goods could be
satved. Estimiated loss $27,000; insurance
The Bank of Sumter was the next to
bui'n. Loss $1,700; insurance $1,000.
The next building to burn was~ the furni
turd store of Durant & Belitzer. Their
handsome stock of furniture, which would
have been an ornament to any city, was par'
tially sav-ed. All on the first floor was re
moved, but in manty instances badly dam
aged. Their stock on the second dloor was
a complete loss. Fire had broken through
the south w~all, and burned the staircase, so
that removing it was an utter impossibility.
Loss about S4,000; insurance $3,000.
Next to Durant & Behitzer is the hardware
store of R. W. Durant & Son. This building
w~as not burned, but damaged, and the goods
were all remnoved. Their loss by handling
and breakage will be about S.500; insurance
Miss McElhose's millinery establishment
was not burned, but was damaged about
$100, fully covei'ed by insurance.
The south wall of Mr. A. A. Solomons'
building, occupied by R. W. Durant & Son,
appears to be badly damaged and may have
to come down. The back of the building is
also damaged to a limited extent.
Th inte Electiric Light Company lost
about_$100 in lamps and sockets, inside and
outside wire and counters.
Mr. John Morris's clothing store, diago

The Rope's Substitui'e.
In New York, where it has been made lE
gal to substitute death by electricity for
death by the rope, or elet'trical excention
for hanging, the apparatus for this purpose i
was tried at Plttsburg, N. Y., in the Clin
ton prison, on a recent occasiont A dyna
mo was set up, and the electricity generated.
A two-year-old steer, weighing 500 pounds,
was first exPerimented on. Mr. Harold P.
Brown, the New York City electrical en
gineer, conducted the experiment. At a
given signal, as the Jf1rald correspondent
states, Mr. Brown turned on a 900 volt cnr
rent, and at the same instant, the animal
dropped dead without a grcan or
struggle. There was no appreciable
or measurable lpse of time be
tween the turning on of the current and the
death of the animal. Dr. Rockwell, who
was present, said it was not possible to ex
perience pain from electrical death, because
the electric current travels so much faster
than the nerve force that death occurred
before the brain can experience any sensa
Criminals will be execnted as follows: An
electrode covered with a wet sponge will be
placed on top of the condemned's head, and
another in a larg-, shoe on one of his feet.
His arms will then be strapped across his
breast and a similar strap placed around
his ankles. He will then be placed on the
chair. The straps will b-attached to hooks
provided for the .urpo-:e. a button will be
touched, and all will be over !
This is evidently a vast improvement on
death by hanging.

cept about $101, and it is perfectly good.
Throughout the State members of the order
have shown great promptness in settling
accounts, and except in those counties
where crops have been a complete failure,
their indebtedness is all settled or will be
soon. Doe~s this look like the order is or
ganized to break down mercantile and other
interests? True the merchant has had to
sell his goods at small profits to Alliance
men but his pay is certain. Small profits
and no losses are certainly better than exor
bitant protits and heavy losses for the mer
chant. Instead of kicking against the Alli
ance, merchants had better encourage it. It
is better for their souls, their minds, and
their bodies. Better for their souls in that
their consciences will be clear of exorbitant
prices and their hopes of Heaven fair; for
their minds in that they will not he worried
every fall about collections; and for their
bodies in that their collections will be good.
The Word Jew.
A gentleman writing to the Jewi~sh .Erpon
ed, of Philadelphia, says:
"Several years ago I commenced writing
for the daily papers, making a specialty of
'Jewish' news. For several weeks, when
one of the copy-readers would handle any
copy for the first time, I would be called to
the front and warned not to use the word
Jew, as some of our leading JTewish resi
dents had frequetly taken the paper to
task for using the word, viewing its usage as
an intended slur, and this was said to a pa
per whose advertising columns teem with
the names of representative Jewish mer
The readers of the Tha'ngs will observe'
that this paper does net hesitate to use the
word Jew wvhenever ocasion demands. In
fact, the wvord is infinitely preferable to
that of Hebrewv, and implies a great deal
more. The wvord Jew has come to be re
garded as referring to religion, and the word
Hebrew to language.
Those Jews who olject to reference to
them as Jews are a sorry set and deserve
sympathy.--Roester JewishL D Tics.
