gratified at the result of his offspring's
progress with his studies gave the lit
tle fellow the nickel without looking
at the paper just handed him. In a
few minutes he looked at what he sup
posed to be a certificate, and amusing
it was to see the smile leave his coun

to be a bill for tuition, but by this
time the little hopeful was enjoyimg

The Quarterly Conference of the
Methodist church was held last Satur
day. Rev. J. S. Beasley, presiding
elder, was present and preached Sat
urday and twice Sunday. The report
of the stewards showed that the
church was well up in financial mat
ters. The delegates elected to the
District Conference, to be held ~in
this place next July, are: J. W. Mc
Leod and J. F. Rhame, and S. A.
Nettles, ex officio; the alternates are
P. G. Benbow and W. G. King.
Trial Justice Benbow has been en
gaged to-day in hearing a case enti
fed Newman & Mims against R B.
Garland for the sum of fifty-three
dollars for one wagon sold by W. M.
Mayes, agent. It appears that Mayes
sold the wagon to Garland, and col
lected $25 as part payment on same,
after having been requested by New
man not to pay Mayes any money, as
the wagon belonged to Newman &
Mims, and not Mayes. The defend
ant claimed that after waiting about
three weeks for Newman & Mims to
serve some legal process on him stop
ping the money in his hands, and not
receiving any such process he paid at
Mayes's request the sum of $25. The
plaintiffs claim that the defendant did
wrong in paying Mayes, and sued the
defendant for the whole amount
agreed upon for the sale of the wagon..
After argument by J. F. Rhame, Esq.,
for the defendant, and J. T. Green,
Esq., of the Sumter bar, for plaintiffs,
the jury returned a verdict of $28 for
The Town Council.
As the time approaches for the election of
a new town council we hear the question
asked, "Who are going to be the members
of the new council ?"
This question is well worth considering,
and it behooves the citizens of Manning to
look about them for the proper men to fill
the municipal offices, and not wait until the
election has been held and the oficeers in
stalled, before the "kicking" exercises are
resorted to. If you do not take enough in
terest in the affairs of your town to speak
out before the election, then hold your peace
ater the election.
It has been suggested on the streets that
a public me.ting be called for the purpose
of discussag men and objects. It has also
been said that there is no necessity for a
meeting, but let the candidates go into the
elecion in a sort of "helter skelter" way,
and the best men 'will win. It is for the
citizens to say whether they are indifferent
The position of Intendant or Warden is
not a very desirable one, and very few like
losing the time from their private business
to devote to the publi. interests, yet at the
same time we are confident that there are
some who have the welfare of the town at
heart, and wonld willingly serve on the,
council if they saw a disposition on the part
of the people themselves that their services
were wanted. Such men, however, are not
going to allow their names to be used in a
scramble race, nor are they going to say'
"nominate me," but if the people who
should be interested in this matter want
them to serve and will indicate it in a prop
er manner we feel satisfied that these men
wil not turn a deaf ear to the call of their

I had an examining visit over the Sutm

Dur friends down there are in earnest as to
their coming town. Summerton really looks
town-like. Col. Utsey was there, not only
in the interests of the C. S. & N. Railroad,
but he was much interested in Sunmerton.
Ur. George Bruner likewise added much by
leveling the avenue and surveying that pfrt

it was unfortunate that the oil mill failed

The Last of the Tramp.
Mn. Enrroit:-Here goes for a description
of last week's tramp. We are not an artist,
to know where to begin, to describe him,
but, however, nevertheless, we will corm
mence with the frock coat, guiltless of but
tons (except two in the rear where they
were of no earthly use) with half a frock
gone, and the remainder of the garment,
mottled like unto the celebrated coat that
got Joseph into a hole, was fatstened at the
neck with a glittering horse-shoe nail. A
pair of pants fantastically fringed with rag
ged ends, which bore the brands of many
a camp fire. Their original color had long
stuck to the overpowering forces of wind
and weather, mud and grease. Below the
fantastic fringe work appeared a pair of
eet incasod in a boot and a shoe. The
shoe had evidently seen better days and
seemed to shrink with humilated pride
from the forced companionship of the boot.
The shoe was long, narrow, and pointed.
The toe of the boot had an air hole in it ex
tending clean across the upper, and was
coarse and stubby. The boot was in proud
possession of a heel, while the shoe had
none. In glaring contrast to this tatt--r
ed attire, the hat that completed the picture
was a new straw affair, and looked like a
bright, fresh, shingle roof, clapped on a
very old, dilap~idated building. The face
beneath the hat was round and plump, very
dirty, quite keen, and embossed with a
thick stubby beard. As the figure ap
proaches, boot, shoe, pants, coat, and face
seem to blend into one animated object, I

It is said by sone of our oldest inhabitants
that not since 1939 has such a storm passel
'over this place, at which time many of th<
finest shade trees were blown down and
many houses damaged. All the China berry
or Pride of India trees then in the plac<
were uprooted. Since then many others
have grown up, some very large. All these
were blown down yesterday. Perhaps not
one is left.
MANY BUILDINGS INJURED.
Ryttenberg & Sons' handsome two-story
brick store i; badly damaged. About one
hundred feet of a brick parapet about six
feet high was blown over on the roof, break
ing in the timber, flooding the upper story
which is used by all our secret societies 'asa
meeting place, damaging the furniture ani
paraphernalia greatly. Mr. R. P. Mona
ghan's store had the tin roof blown off ani
the store was flooded with water. Mr. C. S
Matheson's large two-story machine supply
store is flat on the ground and broken int<
stove wood; the tin on the roof may be saved
and a small per cent. of the timbers. Th<
tin roof of the jail and cotton mill are
slightly damaged. The ball and spire of the
Baptist church steeple are blown off. A large
barn of Ducker & Bultman is blown down
Mr. R. S. Cooper had part of a large syca
more blown on his residence with scarcely
any damage. Mr. B. R. Sanders's kitcheI
is blown off of the foundation, but is intac
on the ground near by.
A small house at the Charleston, Sumte:
and Northern depot was thrown down, and
a Mr. Wilkie, who was in it, was knockei
senseless and lay in the drenching rain fo:
some time. The Episcopal parsonage was
flooded with water from top to bottom. Tw<
large guano and cotton sheds at the Wilming
ton, Columbia and Augusta Railroad depo
were blown down, and under them is bur
ied a mule, whicn had been driven here by
its owner for protection. Near this same
depot seven colored persons were in a house
which was blown to pieces, but not one 4i
them was hurt.
A WOMAN KILLED.
Just a short distance out of the city limits
a colored woman, Ida Richardson, was killed
in a house which was blown down.
A large shed near Main street, undet
which E. E. Rembert & Co. had a lot o
wagons stored for sale, was blown down
Under this shed were also several mules
hitched there by their owners. These were
not injured. Mr. John S. R ichardson, Jr.
had a large tree - blown against the bacd
door of his residence so that it cannot be
opened. The gable end of our large col
ored school building is blown down. A
small building on lower Main street, occu
pied by a colored man as a shop, has the
entire front blown out, and many other in
stances of damage done might be enunier
All over the city fences are down, in soaim
places as many as ten or fifteen panels iI
one fence, and our shade trees are laid lov
by the score; noticeable among these ou
two large and handsome oaks on Monument
The sun shines brightly to-day; to-morrov
the work of repairing will be begun, and it
a few more days the great storm of 1890 will
be forgotten. We are thankful that the los:

Judge Hudsen's Tiews on Lynching.
A1TorSTA, Ga., March 20.-The Court of
General Sessions of Barnwell county. S. C.,
convened to-day with Judge J. H. Hudson I
on the bench. His Honor's charge to the
Grand Jury was full and forcible with re
gard to the recent lynching of eight negro
pisoners. He said: "It is with great re
gret and pain that I must speak to you of
the enormous, outrageous violation of law
committed in this county since the last term
of this court. Eight men, safely confined
in jail to stand their trials, were taken from
the protection of the law by a body of law
less men and shot to death. Such a cold
blooded butchery is without precedent in
the history of this country. If the perpe- I
trators of so foul a murder can be discover
ed let it be done and the law be vindicated.
No people can flourish who have organized
mob law. The harm done by such acts is
incalculably severe. When men go to jail,
take prisoners away, and put them to death
they inflict a frightful blow on their State
and community. Such lawlessness should
be deprecated, should be checked, and I
hope there is sufficient patriotism and love
pf law and order to check such crimes."

Jeft'erson D~avis's Widow.
It may have been noticed that the widow.
of Jefferson Davis, since his death, signs
her name "V. Jeofferson Davis." Many per
sons, doubtless, suppose she has added the
name Jeffe-rson to' her Christian name \'arn
na, but this is not the proper explanation.
V. is the abbreviation of venve, the
French for widow, and it is the custom in
Louisiana, a:nd perhaps in other p.arts of
the South, for widows to place that letter
before the Christian names of' their deceased
husbands. V. JTeflT-rson Davis simply means
the widow of .Je!Yerson Davis. - /We..%so
