News from Silver.
Sn.vEa, March 2.-Mr. F.&ior: This has
been a slippery day for Silver-rain, sleet,
and snow. A good day to chat with the
editor. There can be no service in om
church, preacher and people are kept in
doors. There is rest for the weary; what
matchless goodness ! The weather has
changed several degrees. This morning has
every appearance of winter, the most uncom
fortable day of the present season.
Saturday brought many people tc
Silver, some hauling freight, some
horse trading, others buying from oui
merchants. It was the largest day for busi
ness we have seen yet. Capt. R. F. Milligan
has just returned from Charleston. His
stock of goods is complete and daily arriv
ing. The town looks business-like, while
the merchants expect to do a heavy trade.
I will forward you a more extended shingle
from Capt. Milligan.
The magic lantern exhibition on the night
of Feb. 27 was well attended. It was held
in Capt. Milligan's hall. We welcome all

Mr. W. A. F. Bobo, who has had his sale
stables at Mr. Way's, has sold many Texas
ponies this winter. Mr. Bobo has made
many friends in this part of Clarendon. He
has now returned to Texas where he expects
to bunch his colts and return next winter
with some as good horses as can be sold.
His horses have given general satisfaction.
Mrs. Clark and Mrs. Dr. Durham, two
ladies from Greenville, S. C., paid Silver a
visit last week, to buy lots.
S. P. Fairey and L. N. Richbourg, farm

with the good people of Manning, that they
remained there all last week, courting.
Oata crops look badly. They certainly

The cheap quotations for fertilizers has

can learn quantities of it will be used.

correspondent from Panola has reached a
conclusion: to stop chatting for newspapers.
So I bid the editor of the Tmrs and its read

More News from Silver.
SImvEa, March Ist, 1890.
To FAitor The Manning Tmes:-There has
been so much in the newspapers of late
about Silver, some of it good, and, I'm sorry
to say, some of it bad, that it has at last
stimulated your correspondent to venture
into public print, and try his hand at it.
Our little (soon to be) town has been reg
ularly laid off into streets, and the business
lots located, as well as some beautiful build
ing lots. If persons do as they say, there
will be five or six large stores, a largehwork
shop, a saw-mill, a large boarding house,
and several private dwellings at Silver by
A post office will be established, with Mr.
A. C. Briggs as postmaster, on the 3rd of
March, also a telegraph and an express of
The three Farmers' Alliances, namely,
Calvary, Home Branch, and Silver, are now
considering the advisability of establishing
a large union warehouse at this poit.
Silver is situated in the heart of one of
the finest yellow pine regions in the county.
Add to this the magnificent cotton lands
that stretch for miles in every direction,
Silver being the natural shipping point for
a radius of six to eight miles around it, and
there is nothing that can keep this place
back, no, not even persecution, envy, or the
ain hopes of others to build up other see
tions and towns at the dowrnfall of this com
munity. The people of Silver have too
much brain, muscle, and grit to be hacked
by "wide-awake clubs," newvspapers, or the
foul breath of calumny.
By the way, Mr. Editor, I have been cast
ing about to see what profession to follow,
for it will never do for me to continue farm
ing within a mile and a half of this growing
town. No, no. I must move into town and
get at something more honorable, respecta
ble, and something easier than farming, and
let some one else carry on that menial oc
upation. I have a great notion to be a lit
le editor and run a little paper, to be called
the Silver Gazeute. Oh ! how my heart swells
and my pulse quickens when I conjure up
in my imagination my little editorial office
filled with books and periodicals and news
papers and all these things and me the FEuitor
sitting back in my big arm chair puffing
away at a real havana filler cigar, with my
big ide whiskers gently rustling in the
breeze, and enjoying in dreamy leisure the
greatness of my position. Oh ! howlI could
then hide behind my incomprehensible and
double-meaning editorials that have a door
open at both ends, one to go in, and one to
get out of. Yes, how I could take advantage
of my important and exceptional position to
fling it into fellows that I didn't like, and
how I could puff up those fellows that I did
like, and then again what a great opportuni
ty I'd have to curry favor with these big rich
fellows, while at the same time I'd make be
lieve that I was running my little paper
solely for the benefit, enlightenment, and
as. -ancement of the "horny-handed sons of
Why you see, Mr. Editor, Ta never be at
a loss for news, for I could just step out of
my little office at any time, and stand
around on the street corners, and in a half
hour ITd have enough to fill my little paper,
for it wouldn't matter much to mie whether
anything was sworn to or not by men of
-'veracity," and all I'd want would be to get
it from "at least a half-dozen sources," and
Td publish it and comment upon it in my
edtsla!, and great scott how I'd chuckle in
my sleeves to see the fiustration I'd kicked
up among those fellows, and they all had to
take it, for they couldn't get over the breast
works at me. Of course it would make no
difference to me how such publications in
jured any man or set of men, either socially
or in a business capacity. That wouldn't
be my look out, provided "we should be
ieve it our duty to the people to publish it,
matters not whom it concerns. We should
do so, even though we be held to account."
One more point and then T'm through.
You see an editor's chair would be the step
ping stone to a political future, the possi
blties of which would be untold. The
fact is once I get started as editor Ill never
stop short of congress or som e position of
that sort, and not then until I get the last
one of myfamaily connections in office. There
is nothing like being an editor.
In conclusion I will say that Silver is a
quiet, orderly place, perfectly healthy, ex
ellent water, and very fertile lands. It will
be well for those seeking investments in
lands or town lots to come up and take a
look at this place before investing. There
are some valuable farms around here that
could be bought at reasonable figures.
Fonas-roN, March 5.-I've tried for half an
hour, Mr. Editor, to coin some phrase
other than the stereotyped one of the average
country correspondent, "There is no

A Most Remarkable Duel.
KzYsnR, W. VA., Feb. 24.-The new min
ing town of Elkins, on ex-United States
Senator Davis's new railroad, was the scene
of a duel last night possessing some remark
able phases. James Nee, a coal miner, and
a carpenter named Archer, fast friends, went
on a big drunk together Saturday after
drawing their pay, and continued the spree
over until Sunday. That evening they went
to Mrs. Wise's saloon, where they had been
frequent patrons during the carouse, and,
getting into a dispute with the woman,
drove her out of the house.
They then proceeded to wreck the interior
of the saloon, smashing glasses, windows
and mirrors, and breaking the furniture.
While thus engaged, Nee accidentally hit
Archer and the two men quarreled and had
a rough and tumble fight. This did not
satisfy them and they agreed to fight a duel.
There was but one revolver between them,
and with drunken gravity they agreed that
the pistol should be used turn about, the
shots to be fired while the men stood at op
posite ends of barroom.
The choice for first shot fell to Areher,
and Nee taking his place at the other end
of the room, Archer blazed away. The bul
let struck Nee in the head, ploughing a fur
row along the scalp and causing a profuse
When Nee came to shoot he was blinded
by blood and so nervous from the effects of
the shot that he could not aim, the result
was a miss, and Archer then took a second
shot, but also missed, and handed over the
revolver to Nee for a second shot.
By this time a crowd had been attracted
to the saloon, but no one had courage enough
to enter. - The men refused to pay any at
tention to calls to desist, and Nee fired at
Archer, shooting him through the hand. He
took the gun to Archer for a fifth shot, but
before it could be fired the crowd rushed in,
grabbed the revolver, and put a stop to the

I take pleasure in submitting the follow

the great benefit that has resulted from the
use of your Specific in the case of my little
daughter, now ten years of age. The child,
when two years of age, had a severe attack
of scarlet fever, which left her with a shat
tered constitution. Among other evidences
of impaired nutrition was what the doctors
called softening of the bones, .In her fifth
year she happened to a slight accident
which resulted in the dislocation of the hip
joint, and, from the irritation thus set up,
terrible abscesses of the hip ensued. The
abscesses, despite the best medical treatment
that could be obtained, remained for three
years, discharging continuously. At this
time, through the influence of friends, I
put her on your S. S. S. When this treat
ment was commenced the abscess was very
large, having six perforations, pus discharg.
ing through them all. During this treatment
several spiculm of bone came out, and by
the time she had finished her fifth bottle the
abscess had entirely healed, her appetite
and general health had been restored; in
short she was well and happy, and so cozr

Result of Our Inspection.
It is with pleasure that we announce
to the people of Clarendon the result
of our recent examination of the tre
mendous stock of spring goods just
finished being opened at the establish
ment of Moses Levi. It is always a
pleasant sight to go into a store and
see everything in proper place, the
goods arranged so as to attract, clerks
polite and anxious to give you their
attention. Gratifying was it to us to
hear Mr. Levi express his determina
tion to convince the people that their
going to other towns to make pur
chases was a waste of time and a finan
cial loss, as his purchases were made
this season to such advantage that he
can afford and will sell cheaper than
any merchant in this or any other
He invited us to inspect his im
mense stock of dry goods. Such a
variety would be hard to find in any
country town. He has everything
that can be found in the dry goods
line. We saw a very pretty line
of prints, satines, cheviots, batistes,
nuns veilings, challies, serges, etc., also
a large assortment of white goods,
consisting of lawns, nainsooks, mus
lins, cambrics, mulls, piques, etc.
He then called our attention to his
dress trimmings, embroideries, laces,
ruchings, and other ladies' wear, and
we must say that in our judgment
ladies of the most fastidious tastes
can be pleased with this assortment.
Then we took a look at his stock of
novelties, such as collars, cuffs, hand
kerchiefs. hosiery, gloves, purses, etc.,
and found them very neat and pretty.
Next we were shown a very large
pile of longeloths and shirtings, all
brands and grades, which he proposes
to sell at such low prices that other
merchants will be surprised.
We next went into the clothing and
cloth department and was shown well
made clothing cut in the very latest
styles and of the nicest patterns, his
satin finish coats are simply elegant.
He can fit the largest man or the
smallest boy, he can suit the nobby
young man or the sedate old man,
and if persons are in search of cloth
they can find a fine assortment right
Mr. Levi with his usual keen per
ception noticed that we were being
pleased with the result of our exam
ination, and knowing that the time to
tickle one's fancy is when they are in
a humor to be tickled, he requested
us to walk up-stairs and see his hat
stock. This stock was certainly se
lected with much care and great taste.
We then wended our way back down
stairs to see the stock that he says he
bad manufactured especially for his
trade, and he proposes tc convince the
people of this county that Manning
can keep a good stock of shoes. Mr. Le
vi has on hand the finest and best stock
of shoes ever offered in this town.
There need be no trouble for a lady,
gentleman, or child to be suited when
in want of a good shoe. He says he
has made up his mind that the notion
which people have that a good shoe
cannot be found in this town must be
knocked up, and there is no other
way to accomplish this result than to
sell a good shoe for little money, and
this he is prepared to do.
We were about to take our depart
ure from this scene of pleasant sights
when he called our attention to his
grocery department, but we only had
time to make a hurried examination
when we reached this department.
With his usual generous politeness he
went to his cigar case and invited usi
to smoke one of his celebrated Havana
filled "ambassador" cigars, which was
certainly delightful. We were shown
a pile of meats that had just arrived
from the west, containing about 25,
000 pounds, also 800 barrels of assort
ed grades of flour, besides coffees,
sugars, rice, lard, butter, in fact every-|
thing that is sold in a first-class gro
Our time being up we turned to go
when Mr. Levi requested us to say to
the people of Clarendon that if they
will come to him with the cash he will
guarantee to sell to them cheaper
than any merchant in Manning or
Sumter. Also that he is prepared to
compete with Charleston, and if they
will come with their city bills, he will
not only duplicate the goods, but will
try to save money for them.
A Horror In Hampton.
YAR~vIL.E, HAMroN CoUST, Feb. 26.
The killing of Bob Pope and his little son
has caused no little excitement.
The particulars, as far as I can gather up
to the present, develop a deed unequalled
in the annals of the Police Gazette.
Pope's death is not regretted from what I
can lear:: from those who have long known
of his character and doings, but the brutal
and hideous murder of his little son, osten
sibly to hide the crime, is a deed that should
justly consign its perpetrators to the most
summary punishment. The father was shot
with buckshot and afterwards shot through
the head with a pistol ball, and his throat
From the indications around the scene of
.he tragedy the boy was attempting to run
off and was pursued and brought back near
the body of his dead father and thrown
down and his throat cut to the bone. There
was no other mark of violence about his
Ter ies to the murder are supposed to

The most delicate constitution can safely

of voice, and all throat and lung troubles.

The Game Law.
