Last Thursday afternoon the resi

place, was struck by lightning, the
electric bolt passing through the roof
and down the south wall of the house
into the ground. Mrs. Strother, who'
was sittin.t in the room that was'
struck, received a shock that stunned
her for a short time, but was not in-'
jured. The house was not set on fire,
though for a short time smoke bulged
through the hole made in the roof by

to the extent of having some of its

Two inquests in One Week.
Last Friday Coroner Rowe held an
inquest over the body of June Brown,
a colored man, who died suddenly on
the plantation of Mr. J. M. Richard
son, near Panola. It appears from
the testimony that the deaeased had
given Mr. Richardson some imperti
nence and continued doing so after
Mr. Richardson had several times or
dered him to stop, whereupon Mr.
Richardson struck him two or three
times with his fist, and also kicked
him, but did not knock him down.
Not long afterwards the negro took
sick. A physician was sent for by Mr.
Richardson, and all the attention pos
sible was given the man, but he died
the next day.
Dr. A. J. Briggs was the attending
physician, and on oath said the de
ceased had been in poor health, suf
fering with dysenterv. The deceased
had used considerable sumach, a pow
erful astringent, which produced con
stipation, and he was in this condition
for six days, which produced con
estin of the hxiwels:. liver, and kid
neys. After a thorough examination
he failed to find any bruise or sign of
violence, and the deceased had made
no allusion to any altercation with
Mr. Richardson. He was conscious
to the last, and did not complain of
any hurt or soreness, and in his opin
,ion a blow or kick could not have pro
duced congestion without swelling.
The jury rendered a verdict that
the deceased June Brown came to his
death from natural causes: congestion
of the stomach, liver, and kidneys.
Saturday night Polly Weiters, a
colored woman about 60 years of age,

Three Incidents in Manning's Social His
A young lady, not ten thousand miles
distant from the Tr;;s office, one night last
week concluded to have some fun, so rig
ging herself up in a man's suit she knocked
at the door of a very near neighbor. The
young lady of the house answered the sum -
mons, and upon asking the alleged gentle
man what he wanted, was frightened at his
reply, and rushed back to her mother. The
mother then went to the door, and upon
asking the stranger what he wanted was;
told in abrupt language, "That's my busi
ness." The lady reported to her son, who
was in an adjoining room, what had been
said to her. The son hastily got his pistol
and started for the door, but the young lady,
herself now frightened, hastened to explain
and to reveal her idcntity. All enjoyed the
joke hugely except the young lady who first
answered the rap at the door: she couldn't
see the point in thus being scared.
Miss X, a young lady about fifteen, spent
the night last Thursday with another young
lady, Miss Y, about the same age. The last
mentioned young lady has a brother a year,
or two younger than she is. The evenmng
was spent in telling stories, principally
ghost tales, and it was near midnight when
they retired. Just about grey dawn, the
visiting young lady awoke, and imagining
she saw a ghost in the form of a man, she
jumped out of bed, and rushed into the, ad
joining room where the lady of the house
was sleeping. Her 'cries, "There's a man
in the room," aroused the occupants of both
rooms, and the other young lady, Miss Y,
made haste likewise to leave her room.
Upon entering the next room she naturally
caught hold of Miss X, who, imagining that
the man had seized her, threw up her hands,
exclaiming, "0 Lawdy! he's got me! 0 Law-'
dy! he's got me!" Tne lady of the house, by
this time herself thoroughly frightened,
caught her daughter, Miss Y, who in turn
thinking the man had her, began yellhng at
the top of her voice, "He's got me, to! He's
got me, too !" The whole house was alarmed
by this time, and Miss Y's uncle rushed in
the room to see what the matter was. Dili
gent search failed to reveal anything wrong,
and the two young ladies found out that
they were mistaken in a man's having
them. But the most amusing part of the
occurrence was, after things had quieted
down, the reappearance of Miss Y's younger
brother, who sleeps in his mother's room.
At the first outcry he crawled between the
feather bed and mattress, where he remain
ed till all the racket was over. When he
stuck his head from under the bed, after all
the fuss was over, every one greeted his
comical appearance with a hearty laugh.
Sometime ago a minister called on a faini
ly. The lady of the house told her little
daughter to tell her grandmother that the
minister was in the parlor. The little girl
presently returned, and in reply to the
question, "Did you tell your grandma ?" in
nocently replied: "Yes; and she says she
do't care if he is."

The closing exercises of the Jordan
school took place last Thursday night
and was attended by a large crowd.

Miss Josie McLean, by Mr. J. A.
Sprott, for the patrons: "We, the
patrons of the Jordan school, feeling
sincerely grateful to the teacher, Miss
Josie McLean, for her untiring labors
rendered therein, would respectfully
tender her our kindest regards for
said labors: and it is with feelings of
deep regret that we are compelled to
accept her resignation." Miss Mtc
Lean is an accomplished teacher and
is loved by the whole school. She,
accompanied by her sister Miss Jessie,
will leave for their home in North
Carolina Thursday morning.
- For the past month the Juneville
and T'oreston base ball clubs have
been trying to get up a game, but it
seems that a convenient time can't be
named: when one is ready the other
is not. But the "June Bugs" as "F"
calls us, are ever ready now, and it is
hoped that the Foreston boys may
dance up and reap the benefits of all
their big bragging at an early day.
Dr. H. L. Wilson is spending some
time at his home at Mars Bluff. May
the Doctor's trip be beneficial to his
health. We hope soon to see him re

Miss McLean's School.
JoRDan, June 24.-Rains have in
jured the crops in our section to some
extent. Crops are small and grassy,
you may say generally so; in some
places bad stands. We do not con
sider any crops we have seen, as com
pared with last year, good, with the
exception of one or two corn fields;
cotton is not.
The closing exercises of the Jordan
school, held on the evening of the
19th, was an enjoyable time;,indeed
the entire programme was carried
out without a single mishap. The
pupils showed that their training had
been well done. In an article like
this it would be invidious in us to at
tempt to individualize, where all did
so well. The only sorrowful part was
the parting hand by teacher and pa
trons and pupils; some shed tears.
Miss Josie McLean, during the two
years in which she has presided over
our school has endeared herself to us.
We feel and know that our children
have learned from her lessons of
which death alone can rob them; les
sons that have made them better
boys and girls; will make them bet
ter, nobler, Christian men and women;
they are better prepared for life's du
ties by having been under her patient
Christian training and the inspiration
of her example; but as all temporal
things must have an end so we must
yield n our dear friend and teacher
to other duties. We have the hope
that we will have her yet as a neigh
bor. We all pray for Heaven's rich
est blessings to be showered down on
Miss Josie McLean through life, and
at its end a home in Heaven; and what
we have said of Miss Josie we say of
Miss Susie Lesesne, her assistant.
We had hoped that Miss Susie would
take charge of the school when Miss
Josie retired, but we learn with re
gret thait her health will not permit
her to do so. May both our teachers
live long and happy.
The trustees announced that the
school would be reopened on the
first Monday in September. We do
not know whom they have secured as
teacher. ONE OF THE PATRONs.
Jordan School Exhibition.
EDITOR THF. MANNING TIMF?.-LaSt
Thursday night we had the pleasure
of attending the closing exercises of
the Jordan Academy. Such occasions
as this (especially so with country
schools) deserve only passing notice,
but this deserves more. The program,
which consisted of dialogues, recita
tions, songs, etc., was already under
way when we arrived, but we saw and
heard enough to convince us that the
Jordan people have a good school,
with faithful and energetic teachers.
The children all did remarkably
well, and exhibited careful and sys
tematic training on the part of their
instructors. One of the features
of the entertainment was a
competatory declamation, three
boys contesting for the prize: Masters
Connor Wells, Joe Davis, and Fred
Lesesne. While the speeches of all
were good, the committee were unan
imous in deciding that little Connor
Wells deserved the prize, which was
presented to him later on by Mr. J.
M. Knight in a happy little speech.
The cantata was very fine, and al
though somewhat lengthy, was, we
think, hugely enjoyed by all the audi
The principal had offered three
pr-izes: for declainming, mathematics,
and punctuality. The prize for math
ematies wvas awarded to Fred Lesesne,
the prize for declaiming to Connor
Wells (as. spoken of above), and the
one for punctuality to little May Le
sesne. All the prizes were presented
by Mr. Knight. who, in his remarks,
spoke of the verv fine record made
by the prize-winners in mathematics
and punctuality, as Fred's paper had
but one mistake, and May had been
absent only one day in ten months
and never tardy.
Miss McLean has, much to the re
gret of both patrons and pupils, re
signed the principalship of the Acad
emy, but it is rumored that she has
decided to dwell among us. Nox.

Grove some time ago, and found crops look
ing fine. Some were laying by their cotton
but it looks to me as if a~ honey bee would
have to lie on its back to suck the blooms o
the cotton. From the looks of the crops or
the hills of Pudding Swamp I.think that thi
finny tribe had better look out for thet
Salem's county commissioner is up witl

sightly lumps or swellings; which causes painful
running sores on the arms, legs, or feet; which
developes ulcers in the eyes, ears, or nose, often
causing blindnessor deafness; whichisthe origin
of pimples, cancerous growths, or many other
manifestations usually ascribed to "humors."

for very few persona are entirely free from It.
How can it be cured ? By taking Hood's Sarsa.
parilla, which, by the cures It has accomplished,

proven Itself tobe apotent and peculiar medicine
for this disease. For anl affections of the blood
Hood's SarsaparDllaisunequalled,andsome of the
curesithas effected are really wonderful. If you
suffer from scrofula in any of its varIous forms,
be sure to give Hood's Sarsaparilla a trial.
