BUILD UP THE TOWN.
Never before in the history of the
town of Manning has there been such
a bright prospect for success and
prosperity as there now is. It is hard,
very hard, and in some cases impossi
ble, to get some of our citizens to be
lieve that any improvements in the
town will benefit the whole town, and
that. to make our town a prosperous,
enterprising place we must all work
together, with an eye to the future as
much, even far more, than to the im
mediate amount of money to be got
ten from an investment. Our citizens
with the most money cannot, it seems,
realize the fact that to permanently
benefit the town, they must make per
manent improvements. A neat dwell
ing house costing five hundred dollars
is of more permanent gocd to this
town than ten thousand dollars- put
out on liens and mortgages. A town
hUall costing ten thousand dollars
would be a better investment lor the
town, and for the capitalists, too, than
the same amount put out on liens.
A ten thousand dollar town hall would
be a big thing for the town, a thing of
beauty, and it would also bring in a
large revenue. Why do not three or
four of our capitalists put their hands
in their pockets, build the hall, and
otw ciy benefit themselves but bene
fit the town too? We think the an
swer is simply that the money would
be permanently invested, and they are
are afraid they might possibly lose one
or two per cent. per annum on the
investment. But will such a spirit
tend to improve and build up a town?
We of course recognize the fact that
every man has the right to do what
be pleases with his money, but we
wish simply to show why this town
has not grown.
We need a town hall, we must have
one, and we believe that in less than
a year we will have one. A good plan
would be to get the town to issue
bonds for this purpose, and we hope
it -will be done.
There is a demand for stores and
dwelling houses in this place, but
many of the best sites are held by
parties who will neither sell them,
nor build on them. But the town all
4* he same will build. Other apparent
:.ly less eligible sites will be built on,
-and the business will be brought to
e atis united aso
wihor without a unanimousj
united action (excuse the expression),
the town will be built up.
The Republicans in Congress have
a majority of three in the House, but
-'as this number is usually absent from
-sickness or some other cause, they
really do not in any day have a con
stitational majority. Their plan is to
unsat two or three Democratic mem
bers, and put in Republicans in their
place,. thus assuring them a constitu
tional majority. The Speaker of the
-House, Reid, to accomplish this end,
is acting in a most tyrannical and un
precedented manner, and the Repub
licans have already unseated one
member from Virginia, and supplied
his place with a Republican. The
Democrats are making a hot fight,
* though with little hope of success.
The policy of the Republican party is
rule or ruin, and they care not what;
-.what meansajge employed to keep
*them in power. I

Gaffney City on the first day of Feb

natural consequence the calaboose did
a good business.
Geo. A. Dennison, Jr., teller of the
National Bank, Orange county, at
Goshen, N. Y., committed su i

a defaulter of -about $20,000, and
shame drove him to desperation.
Secretary Tracy, of the navy depart
ment at Washington, lost his house by
-fire gn the 3rd inst. One daughter
and a servant girl were burned to a
crisp. His wife was killed by a fall,
and another daughter and grand
daughter, together with the Secretary,
were badly injured.
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 wlhich a want can be
created; and which sells at a reasona
ble price, can be profitably advertised
in the newspapers.

These gentlemen knew what they
were doing, as they had price lists
with them from some of the largest
business houses in the State and else
where. They went from house to
house, and priced and examined the
goods, but when they struck the Levi
Brothers they struck two first-class
business men who were brought up
with the times and could realize the
fact that the farmer had learned from
sad experience to understand the
quality of goods and their value. So
with that business shrewdness which
is a noted characteristic of the family
they grasped the situation.
They allowed these men to examine
their immense stock of dry goods,
lothing, boots, shoes, groceries, &c.,
and after a careful examination and
due deliberation they fixed the prices.
When the prices were marked down
these Alliance men gave up further
effort. They were satisfied, and in
consequence of the polite attention
3hown them and the willingness of
the Levis to be satisfied with dispos
ing of a large quantity of goods for a
small profit, that day's work turned

Mr. T. A. Williams, a leading dry goods
nerchant of Spartanburg, S. C., writes un
ier date of November 8, 1888. "For years
had a severe ease of nasal catarrh, with
ill the disagreeable effects which belong to
hat disease, which make life painful and
ilmost unendurable. I used medicines pre
:cribed by leading physicians, and suggest
ad by numbers of friends, but without get
ing any better. In the fall of 1887, I began
o take Swift's Speeitic (S. S. S.) It had the
lesired effect, and cured me after taking a
'ew bottles. In my opinion Swift's Specitic
S. S. S.) is the only medicine now in use
hat will effect a permanent cure of catarrh."
I had an attack of rh~eumatism that clung
o me with persistence for nearly four years,
lefying all the remedies prescribed by phy
icians, and numbers of other medicines
vhich I took. I was continually troubled
vith tormenting pains. I finally concluded
o give up all other treatment, and went to
he drug store of Dr. J. C. Franklin. in this
:ity; heie .I purchased a bottle of S. S. S.
iter taking several of which, I was perfect
y cured. I have been well of the disease
~ince last January. I consider S. S. S. a
>lessing to all afflicted with rheumatism.

In the year 1885 I had a severe attack of

tumbers of remedies but without affording
nie relief. I was induced to try S. S. S.
tfter takring sev.eral bottles I was completely
:ured, and once again able to attend to my
misiness. From my experience I can safely
ay that S. S. S. is the best rheumatism med

SILvnit, Feb. 3.-The year 1890 with
its commencement is environed with
the same vicissitudes of care, toil, and
embarrassments, as in former years.
Every one possesses an anxious solic
itude for his future welfare. Prepara
tions for croppings, making arrange
ments for supplies, are first in the
minds of the people. Altogether the
planters are more at ease this year
than I have ever seen them. Mer
chants are more ready to advance, and
the community generally prepared to
enter life's pilgrimage. Wonderful
changes are worked all along the road
to prosperity. We are hopeful of one
of the greatest y6ars in the history of
our grand old State.
We live in a community abreast
with this progressive age. Educational
facilities are behind none. Railroad
communication at our doors, so that
the joy of our people knows no bounds.
Silver is destined to rise in her might
and at some future day be the place
of note between Charleston and Sum
ter. Guided by the knowledge of its
location nothing retards her progress.
Many of our people avail themselves
of this way of railroad to Sumter.
A heavy trade has been given to Sum
ter by. this portion of the county. The
Alliance men trade in Sumter princi
pally. This of course will injure
Manning to some extent, to what ex
tent can only be realized in the future.
Our Manning merchants are all good
men, but on liens they have sold goods
too high. Competition is the life of
trade. This may be the means of in
ducing a more lively trade for Man
ning. The passenger fare, however,
from Silver to Sumter amounts to an
exorbitant swindle. It is seventeen
miles, and for this you are made to
pay seventy cents. How long this may
continue I know not, but such is the
dissatisfaction that travel to Charles
ton is preferable on the Wilson and
Summerton, or by Manning on the
A new post office will be opened at
Silver in a few days. Mr. A. S. Briggs
will be post master.
The Silver Alliance, with Mr. A. W.
Thames, Sr., president and James
McCauley secretary, is on a boom.
The two stores kept by Mr. A. W.
Thames, Jr., and A. S. Briggs are al
ways supplied with goods. Their
prices are amazingly low. Stock is
being taken for both the glass and
soap factories. It is proposed to raise
a building and loan association. A
northern gentleman was here a few
days ago-looking up a site to build a
hotel. He remarked to the writer he
liked Silver much better than any lo
cation on the new road.
Quite a novel suit was brought be
fore Judge Mahoney's court by one
Hind (colored), of Sumter, against
Mr. Jolin W. Thames, of this county,

which of course increased the fire, and
when her father caught her, and before he
could relieve her, she was so severely burn

Knight's hands were badly burned, one of~
them so much so that he will not be able to

Good house-keeping does not
necessarily consist in keeping
things in perfect order, althog h
order is one of the requisites,
but it does consist in keeping a home
sweet and orderly, providing well
cooked food, and making the home
so cheerful that every one coming in
to it will feel better for having breath
ed the atnostphere of such a home.
A place like this is truly a home, and
the woman who makes such deserves
the respect and admiration of every
one. Now I know there are men and
women who think that just what any
well conducted hotel - or boarding
house can furnish is sufficient., but I
do pity the man or woman who has
no higher ideal of a home than what
is furnished by a hotel, no matter
how..sumptuous. A selfish womani
can keep a home in perfect order, but
she cannot make a home. A woman
who would make an ideal home must
possess judgment and a large share
of charity and sympathy, must not de
pend on money procuring everything,.
but be willing to make with her own
hands a large part of the comforts aLd
ornaments of that home, though it
should cost her some time.
Mo-rms iN WoOLENs AND Fvas.--Most
persons think it necessary to hang
their winter clothes in the open air
before packing them away for the
summer. Experience has taught us
that this method is not only useless
but injurious. The clothes certainly
do not need airing, having been in
use all winter-most of them out of
doors-and a moment's reflection will
convince any one that clothing thus
exposed is more than likely to be
seized upon by the tiny moth millers
which fly about in such numbers
during early spring. Winter cloth
ing should be thoroughly brushed im
mediately before being packed away,
as it is liable to receive the germs of
destruction if allowed to lie about for
even a few minutes, and if the tiny
eggs of the moth are once deposited,
we put them comfortably away in the
trunks with- the clothes, and irrepara
ble mischief is set on foot. Gum
camphor is the best thing to put with
the clothing, and about a pound of it
should be used in each trunk, but the
most essential part of the whole pro
ceeding is the brushing. All woolen
garments that are worn- during the
summer-shawls, jackets, gowns,
etc.-should be taken out of the clos
ets and brushed regularly if not kept
in constant use.-Amwrican Agric-td

Peculiar In strength and economy-Hood's Sar
saparilla Is the only medicine of which can truly
be said," 100 doses one dollar." Medicines in larger
and smaller bottles require larger doses, and do
not produce as good results as Hood's Sarsaparilla.
Peculiar In Its "good namne at home "- there Is
more of Hood's Sarsaparilla soldin Lowell, where
It is made, than of all other blood purifiers.
Peculiar in Its phenomenal record of sales
abroad, no other preparation has ever attained
such popularity in so shnort a time. Do not be in
duced to take any other preparatin. Be sure toget
