which they are regarded by those
whose inconsiderate friends are after
thrusting some offices upon them.

We were requested some time back
to call the ttention of our city fath

the shade trpes of the town. Some
evil minded person had even gone so
far as to posit on a tree in front of the
Presbyteriaia church a notice of "Al

in town Saturday, and we are inform

after suitable persons to appoint as

would have an appointment that she
will be pleased with.

It is a pleasure for us to learn of
the great success Mr. W. A. Barfield
is meeting with in Sumter. He is a
strictly first-class tailor, and can make
as good a fit in a suit of clothes as
any man. He has an original method
of taking measures, andI never fails to
give an accurate fit. His work is not
.o'nly neat-it is beautiful. The pee.
pe of Sumter have in Mr. Barfield as
ine and competent a tailor as is in
the State. He deserves the snecess

Mr. C. Isadore Hoyt died at his
residence in Sumter, Tuesday, May 6,
after an illness of several months.
Mr. R. F. Horton, of Santee, lost a
fine mule last Monday. It probably
had lung fever.
Mr. C. C. Thames, of Silver, has
contracted to build a school house for

If Manning intends to keep pace
with the progressive towns of the
State, the moneyed men must put
their hands in their own pockets.
Mr. A. W. Thames, of Silver, re
ceived his commission as post master
for that place last Monday, and he
will at once enter upon the discharge
of his duties.
We are informed that a good many
persons from this place expect to take
advantage of the cheap rates to Rich
mond where they will witness the
largest military display ever had in
Rev. James McDowell will preach
in New Harmony church next Satur
day. On Sabbath he will preach as
usual in Manning Presbyterian church
at 11 o'clock A. X., and again at New
Harmony at 4 P. B.
Sumter proposes to build a $35,000
hotel, and most of this amount has
already been subscribed. Two men
subscribed $5,000 each. That's busi
ness. No wonder Sumter is gaining
the lion's share of Clarendon's trade,
when her business men show such
pluck and energy.
Subscribers will please remember
the Trs is CASH IN ADVANCE
Please don't ask us to send it on time:
wait till you get the money. And
when your subscription expires unless
you promptly send us the money for
renewal we will stop the paper. We
don't want to lose a single subscriber,
but our rule is CASH IN ADVANCE,
and unless the cash is paid in advance
the paper stops.
The Manning Guards will drill next
Monday afternoon at 7 o'clock. After
the drill a meeting of the company
will take place, for the purpose of
electing officers. Every member of
this company should be present, as it
is very important to bring about such
a state of affairs that its members
will take a greater interest in the com
pany. For the last twelve months
there has been a considerable amount
of indifference displayed, and it is to
be hoped that after the election of
officers Monday night a new interest
will be felt.
An Ancient Custom.
Ever since the day that the Lord made a
covenant with Abraham and said to him,
"This is my covenant which ye shall keep,
between me and you, and thy seed after
thee: every man-child among you shall be
circumcised." has the custom prevailed
among the Israelites to obey this time
In every Jewish family when a boy is born
it is an event of great rejoicing, as "unto
them a prince is born," and at the expira
tion of eight days this great event is cele
brated by having performed the rite of cir
cumision an?'d the child being named.
Last Monday morning at the residence of
Mr. Aaron Weinberg the solemn rite of cir
cumision was performed on his infant son,
whose name will go down to posterity as
Benedict Abraham. The ceremony was con.
ducted in a very impressive manner by the
Rev. Mr. Rubin, of Charleston, in the pres
ence of quite a number of friends and rela
tives of the parents.
After the services were over the party fill.
ed their glasses with wine, and drank to the
health and prosperity of the young hopeful
and his parents, and then a general expres
sin of congratulation and good wishes took
These gatherings are always pleasant, and
this one was especially so, as the company
seemed brimful of pleasant wit and humor,
and all seemed to realize that it matters not
how many sons are born into a family the
last one is the finest.
Let's Have a lactory.
Last week we mentioned the suggestion of
a prominent merchant of this town, that
Manning would be a good site for a wagon
We hope that the da y is not far distant
when this suggestion w ill be put into practi
cal operation. By having a wagon factory
here a large number of workmen would be
employed and as a natural consequence these
people would spend considerable money in
It would be greatly to the advantage of
our merchants to look into this matter and
form a joint stock company. We need some
thing ofthe kind to make our town grow
and prosper, and in order to successfully
accomplish any enterprise our people must
do away with all feh'iga of seltishness and
pull together for the good of all. No project
can succeed if the selfish feeling exists that
because somebody will be more benenitted
than another, and because the trade of an
institution will not all go to one, therefore
that one will have nothing to do with it.
Look at the spirit of progress exhibited in
other towns where tie merchants and .other
moneyed men are putting their hands down
into their pockets and opening their purses
for the benefit of the communities in which
they live. These towns are booming, while
ours is comparatively at a stanSstill.
If a wagon factory is not what we want,
then let us look for some other industry: we
canot afford to sit down idly while our
neighbors are working. There is not a town
in the State with better facilities for mana
facturing industries than Manning: the
health of the town is first-class, the water
cannot be excelled, and everything that a
town requires to induce progress is right
Let our people come together, consult
each other,.and thereby devise some plan of
action by which our town will grow and
prosper. The spring season is on us. Paint
your dwellings, white-wash your fences,
build up your vacant lots, and_ otherwise
improve and build up your premises.
The town council is doing fine work by
opening drains, repairing bridges, ixing
sidewalks, and opening streets. Their work
is being done in a thorough manner. Now
let us do ours, so that when a stranger
comes here he will see something to attract
his attention and induce him to come and
invest with us.
Festival at Grange Hall.
The ladles of Calvary will give an ica
cream festival at the Grange Hall for the
benefit of the Ladies' Missionary Society
on Tuesday evening, the 27th inst., at 8
o'clock. Their friends and the friends of
missions are earnestly requested to attend.
Full and elegant assortment of ladies',
misses', and children's hats and trimmings
can be found at Mrs. M. 0. Burgess's store.
Ladies wishing such goods are invited to
call. These goods are unusually attractive,
and prices remarkably low. Buying and
selling for cash makes quite a difference in
cost. Untrimmed hats from 25c. up.
M. Kalisky says that he has the finest
supply of men's, youths', and children's
summer clothing and hats in town. He says
that he bought them at a special bargain aad
1will give his customers the advantage of his
cheap purchases. So as the weather is get
ting warm throw off your heavy clothing and
Read This Offer.
Having become convinced from ob
servation that there are many
persons in the county who are not now
taking the MANr.rG Tnims simply be
cause they are unacquainted with its
many merits, and that if they once
contracted the habit of looking for
ward to their county paper every
week, they would not be able to do
without it, we have determined to
send out the paper on a "trial trip" at
special rates. To all subscribers not
now on our list who will pay us the
sum of FIFTY CENTS in advance,
we will send the MoNxI-o Tnmrs from
the date of said payment until Nov.
15, 1890. As the regular price of the
paper is $1.50 per annum, it will be
seen that this offer, now made solely
for the purpose above mentioned, is
indeed a generous one. The date of
expiration, Nov. 15th, is named in
order that these special subscribers,
should they decide to discontinue at
this time, will be able to obtain any
way the full election news, for it must
not be forgotten that 1890 will doubt
less prove, for reasons too numerous
to enumerate at this time, one of the
most important election years which
has been known in South Carolina
since the war.
SunImerton's Newsy Budget.
Suxzarox, May 12.--The stands of cot
ton are very good in this section. We are
having fine weather for cleaning ont the
crops, and the farmers seem intent on doing
it, as we see no loafing around.
Eleven cents for cotton will make any of
the farmers stir around lively. Hope the
price will stay at what it is until the new
crop is harvested and sold.
Several of our citizens took advantage of
the excursion rates, and paid Charleston a
visit last week.
The Methodists had an ice cream festival
last Friday night and realized about $30.
The Baptists will have a magic lantern
entertainment to-night, conducted by Rev.

Felder, J. C. Lanham.
Politics seems to be as cool as spring wa
ter in this section. Hope it will continue
so. All we want is good men in office, and
we don't want any fool cut about it, either.

A Dangerous Fire Near Greeleyville.
Gnrxt.r.v.nse, May 11.-Yesterday after
noon a negro woman walking in the woods

Hocus Pocus I Told You So.
Enrron MANNIN TMs :-I have been
watching since the March Convention, and
have come to the conclusion that we have
some funny men in our county. Some few
are out and out Anti-Tillmnan, a great many
are for Tillmnan, and a great many are like
Harry Hinton's funny man:
"Ncow I will and now I won't;
Now youi see it and now you (lon't;
Under my hips and -over your nose.
Hocus pocus and there she goes."
These when they express themselves will
look over their sLoulder to see if any one
can hear, and they remind me of the saying
of the old darkey:
"Oh, Lordy, Massa Joe,
What makes you fool them darkies so."
I suppose when the lines are drawn and
the pot boils, these will discover the win
ning side, and after the fight is over they will
say "I told you so, Bletsey and I kill-l the~
bear," when Betsey did all the killing.
In my humble opinion the time hiasconme
when ererybody should speak out, and let us
remember that we be brethren and are sin
cre in our opinions, and that affter our
family quarrel is over we will b~e as one man
and the Democeratic party will be- more
united than ever. The drom m:y horn a
little, but, being purified, the old party will
shine brighter and brighter. Tillmnan in

Political and Literary iotes from Wilsons.
Wn.soss, May 12.-Tillman and Anti-Till
man are having a big fight, truly, but from
the signs of the times not as big as it is go
ing to be. Such proceedings as was had at
Ridgeway on the fourth is, to say the least
of it, simply disgraceful. Tillman's most
bitter enemies are doing him a great deal
more good, and by slandering and villifying
him are on a more direct road to elect him
governor than his best friends are. We be
lieve Tillman will be the next governor, but
if his Antis don't "quit their bebabeness
and learn Low to don't," we know he will
be governor. We claim to be no part of a
politician, and are willing to stand (,ff and
try to see that there is a fair fight, but we
reckon nobody can prevent our hollerin',
"Hurrah for Tillman and his Aunty!"
Wilsons Literary Club met as usual at
Mrs. Nelson's, Friday night, with quite a
large and appreciative audience. Sorry we
can't give you the program in full. Excel
lent music was furnished by two accom
plished organists: Miss Fannie Burgess, of
yonr town, and Miss Josie McLean, of Jor
dan. We remember enough about one of
the pieces to say that Mr. Irvin Plowden got
there in his role of "Big injun, whoop, yah,
whoop !" There was also a debate on the
question, "Which is best calculated to dle
velop character, riches or poverty ?" On the
affirmative were Messrs. Ed. Wilson and A.
P. Burgess, and on the negative Messrs.
J. Champe Strange and J. L. Cannon. A
committee of three, Rev. J. C. Bissell, J. H.
Lesesne, and W. L. Burgess, were requested
to act as judges. The committee, in a re
port very flattering to the society, said that
the subject had been well handled by both
sides but decided in favor of the affirmative.
The infantry and artillery we spoke of last
week were there and (lid blaze away tre
mendously, and we believe that the artil
lery, which was on the negative side, would
have carried off the laurels, but for the fact
that one of their guns, intended to have
been most effective, hurled its missiles high
and harmlessly on the "hills of Bethlehem."
The society will take a rest from now until
the second Friday night in September.
The entertainment was closed with the
most appropriate so'g, "God be with you
till we ieet again." B.
Tillman Convert Talks Again.
Since writing my last letter I have been
somewhat amused at the efforts that certain
individuals are making to discover the au
thor of the communication signed "Tillman
Convert." Some said it was a fellow living
on Black River, others said it was a man
living in or near Manning, and another said
it was one of Tillman's campaign documents
that was prepared by him and sent to a
zealous admirer to have published in order
to create a Tillman sentiment, and thus
they keep on guessing antd they have not
been able to discover the writer yet. I re
gretted very much that I did not see you
when you were here a few nights ago. I
wanted to ask you to loan me some of your
up-country exchanges, but did not know you
were here until I went to the postoffice the
next morning, and while there some one
I see from the papers that the State Exec
utive Committee had a meeting and selected
the 26th of July for a mass meeting to be at
Manning. I hope we will not be disappointed
in having the largest gathering ever held at
the county seat. Every farmer ought to be
on hand and hear the speakers. I hope
Farmer Tillman will be there, and if he is I
will venture the assertion that fair play will
be the order of the day. I do not believe
that the people of this counDty are going to
submit to the brow-beater and bull-dozer.
All that we ask is to give our man a fair
showing and a respectful hearing, and we
will give their men the same treatment.
I have just iinished reading the account
of that horrible lynching in Lexington. It
is awful beyond expression, but why this
lawlessness? Is it becartse the law~ is not
strong enough ? or is it that proper efforts
are not made to excente the laws ? In my
judgment a new and thorough system ought
to be organized by which the law of the land
can be enforced. It has got to such a pass
that people enn take the law in their own
hands without the slightest fear of punish
ment. Men can commoit crime in this State
and n'knouwledlge it. and then go impnn
A thorough change is: necessary. en
ought to be tried, and if they fail, then keep
on electing new men until we do get officers
and juries that will do their duty.
Some say that tile present officers are
good men and will do their duty, but that
tile jury system is to blame. If this be true
then the jury system should be changed.
Somethmng must and should be done if the
already blood-stained name of South Caro
lina is to be cleansed.
I am glad to see that the newspapers are
holdling up with their abuse of our leader.
They are beginning to find out that the
more they abused him the closer his triends
woultd cling to him, and if they had in the
beginning of the family fight resorted to
sound argunment instead of abuse it is very
likely they would have succeeded in mak
Iing their ~eause stronger, but b~y indulging
in calling him hard name-s and ridiculing
his personal appearance, they irritated Till
man and his brother farmers, and not only
them but others also, to feel that sympathy
which is aroused when a fellow man is be
ing unjustly persecuted. The die is east,
the opposition have done their work, and it
now behooves us to do ours. We have got
to watch as well as pray, and not let them
with their trained methods blind us with all
kinds of sweet promises.
The Democratic clubs will soon be organ
ized, and then it will be our duty to turn
out and see that our men are sent to the
conventions and that we have our friends
on the executive committee. If we sit idly
at home and let the opposition attend the
club meetings of course they will elect their
friends, and the farmer will be to blame.
Once we lose our opportunity at home the
work will be done, and it will be useless for
us to open our mouths.
Now let me say to my brother farmers
that it is their bounden duty to turn out to
the meetings of their respective clubs, and
when they do turn out they must cause
themselves to be heard. If they cannot get
up and make a speech get up any way and
state your feeiings, how you want to vote,
and who you want to vote for. Whatever
you do don't allow yourselves to be dictated
to by your former leaders, but select the
men that you have every reason to believe
are sincerely advocating your cause, and all
will be well.
I was disgusted to hear one of the oppo
stion say a few days ago that he would sup
port Tilliman if somie one had not told him
that he was an infidel. He admitted, how
ever, that he believed Tillman would make
a first-class governor, and that his adminis
tration wvould b~e a progressive one. I mere
ly mention this to show how some people
stoop in order to dig filth to throw at a can
didate. After calling Tillman all kinds of
hard namues and finding that it did not have
the desired effet they are now trying to ap
Ipead to the retigious sentiment by telling
our people that our leader is one that refutses
to believe in Gsod.
I do not know wheither Tillmian is a be
lieer in God or not, but I do believe that
f he at any' time ever expressed himself as
being an neliever these fellows instead of
handing the news around by word of mouth
w ould get the Anti-Tillmain papeis to pro
caim it in large headlines. I do not believe
thait Thian is an unbeliever, and will not
blieve it until I can hear it from a source
hait is~ not trying everything possible to
cush him. TnLLrA Co~vErT.

Eoiron MANNINo Tnis:-Hearing that
you were at Foreston last week, and also
hearing that you bought a lot of fish to car

you an idea of what we are doing down here
with the finny tribe. For the past week
the catch of mawmouth has averaged
about 300 per day, and as I see you are very
fond of fish I would be glad indeed to have
you come down and try your luck. I can
assure you that you will get a.i many as you
can eat and enough for the folks at home.
We are having fine seasons; cotton is up
with a good stand; our farmers are wide
awake and well up with their work; and
the health of this section was never better.
Politics with us is entirely one-sided- ev
ery man that I have talked to is true blue
for Tillman and reform. Gen. Earle was
the first choice of my neighbors, but as the
Farmers' Convention selected Ben Tillman
we will all grab up our old hats and wave
them as lustily for him as we did for Wade
Hampton in '7t.
I see that there is some talk of Hampton'
being pitted against Tillman, but I don't
believe old Wade is the kind of a man to
be fooled by as flimsy a trick as that. Why
it would not take much of a philosopher to
see that it is simply a game to pull
him out of the Senate to place him on
the shelf alongside of a number of other
political characters that will be shelved after
the meeting of the Democratic Convention.
The ol.d leaders have had their day, and
will soon be things of the past. They re
mind me of the boy and his father and the
boy's dog. The dog was young, and the boy
asked his father to allow him to set the dog
after him to see if the dog would obey. The
father agreed. So the dug was set on, and
he caught the old man. The old man cried
out with a painful cry for the son to take the
dog off, but the son said, "No, I cannot; the
dog is young and it will ruin him to take
him off: you are old and cannot last much
longer no how." Just so, with our party:
the old fellows are calling for help and ask
ing that we let them alone as we have done
in the past, and allow them to go on filling
all the offices with their men. They think
Ben Tillman is only working for office, and
if he gets the nomination they will have to
seek other employment, as he will not allow
an old-timer to remain.
Therefore, if you want to retain in public
office men who have held on to their offices
ever since 1876 like grim death, and men
whose only fitness for office is a long line of
distinguished ancestors, vote for them as
you have always done, and they will continue
feasag at public dinners and formal re
ceptions, and allow the people to read in the
papers of how they cut a swell as their rep
I say hurrah for Tillman, and let us all
labor for peace, harmony, and a triumphant
Brewingtci, May 12, 1890.
"1 regard Hood's Sarsaparilla as having
passed above the grade of what are common
ly called patent or proprietary medicines,"
said a well known physician recently. "It
is fully entitled to be considered a standard
medicine, and has won this position by its
uradoubted merit and by the many remarka
ble cures it has effected. For an alterative
and tonic it has never been equalled."

Clarendon Favors Tillman.
EDrronIxANNx.G Trxcs:-I noticed in yes
terday's News and Courier a letter from W.
A. Ancrum, of Boykins, S. C., suggesting
the name of John C. Sheppard for Governor.
He also suggests that a convention be called
of all those opposed to Tillman's charges
and candidacy, to meet in Columbia at an
early day, and to be composed of the usual
representation of the rlifferent counties. He
says that "without some such action it real
ly seems that we invite defeat." He admits
that there is a feeling of unrest and dissat
isfaction broadcast over the State, and that
many farmers believe that the solution of
their troubles requires a "new deal," and
they are not willinig to accept Mr. Tillmian
as their "Moses."
I think Mr. Ancruni mistaken, as far asz
this county is concerned. 'The farmers of
Clarendon are almost solidly united in their
support of Tillmian. They believe him to
he a man fully able to assume the leader
ship of their movement, and they propose
to stand by him let come what will.
Mr. Ancrum says that Mr. Tillman's fol
lowers consists "of e.very sore-head, weak
kneed Democrat, disappointed office-seeker,
who is willing to follow any mian or move
mient which may cause a change in the po
htical life of the government.'
Can it be possible for a man to believe
Isuch a wild statement? I do not believe
Mr. Ancrum believes his own assertion.
There is no doubt that a man who is zeal
ously advocating a cause that has given him
honor and position might forget himself
and say some things that he does not mean,
and especially might this be the case when
he considers the fact that lie is one of the
"gang" that this great tight is made against,
and if success should attend this movement
his position would go also.
To say that the farmers of South Carolina
are office seekers, sore heads, etc., is actual
ly insulting to our manhood, and we will
show thyse men at a proper time that such
remarks will be promptly rebuked. We
farmers are to be slandered and insulted
becauso we have had the manhood to say to
our old leaders, step down and out as we
have a man among our own profession
whom we desire to place in position. When
we said this, a bowl was raised and Tillmian
was accused of Mahoneism, of "insincerity"
and of everything else that lying tongues
could utter and eager opposition papers
would publish. I am glad that I happened
to see this letter. It gives me the chance to
inform my brethren of what is going on,
and to call their attention to the fact that
the apposition are "fixing" to manufacture
their soft-soap at the same old stand on
