A Little Child Dies from the Effects of an
Oyerdose of Laudanum.
One of the saddest accidents in the
history of Manning happened last
Friday afternoon in Mr. Aaron Wein
berg's household. His little daugh
ter Edua, about. sixteen months old,
had been unwell for several days and.
was attended by Dr. W. S. Pack, at
whose request Dr. Richardson was
that afternoon called in consulta
tion. Wishing to administer an emetic,
wine of ipecac was prescribed, and
Dr. Pack having his nmedical case with
him took out a vial plainly labeled
"wine of ipecac," to measure out _a
teaspoonful. The bottle was emptied,
there being not quite a teaspoonful,
and the dose given the child. Shortly1
afterwards she became drowsy, and
showed signs of having taken an opi
ate of some kind. Becoming more
drowsy the doctors were again sent
for. Dr. Pack examined the vial from1
which the medicine had been emptied,
and discovered that he had given
laudanum instead of ipecac, and a dose
about twenty times too great for a
child of that age. Everything possi
ble that metical skill and loving hands
could do tesave the little girl's life1
was done, but the drug had already
paralyzed the stomach, and as there
was no stomach pump in town, it was
impossible to remove the fatal draught
and save her life. In about four hours
time her pure little spirit wended its
Dr. Pack is naturally deeply pa'ned
and worried. He says the fault lies
with the druggist who filled the vial,
and who put laudanum in tbe ipecac
bottle. The bottle was filled several
months ago, but he does not recollect
who filled it.
We never saw a brighter and more
intelligent child of that age, and her
death is universally regretted, but no
one blames Dr. Pack. It is just one
of those unfortunate accidents, fearful
in consequences, which cannot be un
The remains were carried to Sumter
Sunday morning, and interred in the

L. Loyns, S. Wolkoviskie, P. G. Ben

B. Loryea, and L. Appelt accompanied
the body, and at Sumter a number of

Mitor of The Mouming Tmes:-In reference
to the sad death of little Edna Weinberg. it
has been stated that, "The doctor is very
much worried, but says the fault lies with
the druggist who filled the bottle: that the
druggist put the laudlanum into the ipecac
Now, Mr. Editor, the circulation of such a
report has a tendency to reflect upon us,
and while we have the deepest sympathy
for the physician whose error caused the
death of the little girl, we do not propose
that one particle of blame shall attach to us.
We, therefore, beg to state unreservedly
that this mistake was not made in our drug
store. Yours respectfully.

The Penitentiary Farm.
The Board of Penitentiary Directors held
a meeting- Saturday, and a vote was taken
as to the farm to be selected for purchase by
the State for the penitentiary. Several bal
lots were taaen, in fact. The first resulted
in a tie, three members of the board voting
in favor of purchasing the Taylor plantation
in Lexington County, and the three others
in favor of the DeSaussure place in Sumter.
On anothor ballot three votes were cast for
the DeSaussure place, one for the Taylor
place and two for the Miles plantation in
Claredon county. 'The matter was, there
fore, postponed until the next meeting.

a piece containing sixteen largo rattles,
which he said was a part of the outfit of a
snake killed by him yesterday eveming,
which he says was about six feet long, as
large around as his leg, and had twenty-six
rattles and a button. Not having a knife to
cut them off, he undertook to beat off the
rattles with a stica and thus broke them,
was why he only had sixteen. He says lie

The game of base ball on last Fri
day evening between the Forestoa
and Summerton clubs was 19 to 6 in
favor of the Foreston club. Our boys
played well, but they were over
matched in the Foreston club. Ed
says our boys were rattled on the first
two innings, and I reckon it was so,
for the Foreston club made 13 scores
to 2 whitewashes. I would say just
here for the benefit of the Foreston
boys that our boys are not satisfied,
and they will have to play them again.
The ice cream festival given by the
ladies of the Methodist church was a

Foreston, and the surrounding coun

selves. It was given for needed re

amount raised was $66.55.
Children's Day in the Metho

was very good for the short time they
had to practice. The speeches, dia

with beautiful songs, was admirably
carried out: -

Some Suggestions to Our Legislators.
MR. EDIroR:-Please allow me space in
your valuable columns to express some of
my political views. What we need to re
lieve our greatest burdens and to promote
our interest is a change in the legislature.
We. as it has been shown, have 80 per cent.
of the voting population in the State, there
fore I claim we should have equal strength
in Senate and House of Representatives.
We need to represent us good level-headed
farmers who will stand to their principles,
who have views of their own, and who are
not ashamed or afraid to express them pub
licly or privately. The farmers are the
ones most oppressed, and the farmers must
bring about the remedy. In my weak way
of thinking some of the following amend
ments would be beneficial, or at least I favor
1st. That the supervisor of registration of
each ccunty be required to visit each pre
cinct in each election year. - I think, in fact
I know, the compensation is quite sufficient
to warrant the supervisor to do so. We have
plenty of good men who would visit each
precinct once a year for $200.
2nd. That the legislature make an appro
priation for the arranging and printing of
laws and instructions necessary for county
commissioners of each county, and thus
dispense with the fees or salary of a legal
adviser, which I think could be satisfactorily
done with much less expense to the differ
ent counties of the State.
3rd. That we have a constitutional con
vention at as early a day as possible.
4th. Thatt the State do away with the agri
cultural department, and apply this large
appropriation that is disposed of every year
to the common schools of the State, which
would strengthen the public schools consid
erably. I have never seen where the agri
cultural department has ever benetitted the
State but very little. Fifteen years ago fer
tilizers were a great deal more valuable thn
they are now. One ton then was worth as
miuch as three now, and so far as the farm
ing interest is concerned it is in worse con
dition now than when the agricultural de
partment was first instituted.
I5th. That the legislature exempt the lower
part of the State from the stock law, which
I think would be one of the greatest bless
ings that has been done for the people since
6th. I am in favor of the abolition of the
homestead and lien laws, and let every
man's property stand responsible for all
debts he may contract after such repeal.
This would have a tendency to make every
man more careful how he did business and
I think would bring about a better system
7th. That the count'y treasurer's and audit
or's offices be consolidated into one oflice.
It was so before the wvar and I think it could
be so again and save the tax payers of each
county several dollars.
Economy is what we need: fewer offices
and they better filled. I noticed at the sit
ting of 'the legislature two bills, handed in
by Mr. Eaton, which I think would have
been very beneficial to the State generally:
one was to prohibit and punish all trusts or
combines in the State; and the other was to
prohibit the manufacture and sale of any
concealed weapon, such as pistols, dirks,
daggers, metal knuckles, slung shots, &c.
The people generally favored both bills, but
they svere both killed or tabled. I hope to
see in the near future some of the above
changes, which I think would be beneficial
to the people. WV. H. Cunar.

EDIToRn o Tims:-Take the plat
form of the farmers' movement, issued by
the convention of Democrats assembled
in Columbia, March 27th, 1890, containing
principles and measures upon which they
intend to strive for supremacy in party and
Ist. The right claimed for each anti every
citizen is so self-evident, that surely none
will be found to gainsay it; yet I see it gain
said by the Huron RuNralst in the following
language: "it is the most astounding im
pudence of the age that the farmers and la
borers of the ULited States should presume
to have any independence worth making a
fuss about. If this thing goes much further
there will have to be some measures taken
to make them know their places. So long
as they vote a machine-made ticket they are
all right, but should they presume to make
a ticket, they will have to be taught to know
2nd. That experience has shown the value
of agitation inside our ranks. As to this
second head much has been said atgainst it.
So long have the farmers "lain supinely
upon their backs and hugged the delusive
phantom of hope" that all is well, and that
the few, who control and manage everything
without troubling them, except to call on
them for a vote occasionally, with full direc
tions as to when and how it is to be given,
are the proper ones to direct-the affairs of
county and State; that they, the farmers,
have been bound, as it were, hand and foot,
and from the non-exercise of thought and
reason on the state of their affairs (in their
blindness,) have become mere tools in the
hands of the designing ones, who are now
loath to give up any portion of that power,
which they have so long wielded.
Now, that by agitation the heavy scales
are dropping from the farmers' eyes, and,
what seemed formerly right to them, they
find to be entirely wrong. Hence the con
vention and its action.
Though the platform recognizes the im
perative necessity of Anglo-Saxon unity and
pledges to abide by the arbitrament of the
Democratic party, relying upon the whites
to secure all needed reforms, and that we
differed as brethren contending against a
common enemy and that we would bow in
submission to the behests of the party fairly
expressed through the regular channels: the
hue and cry has been that the whole and
sole aim of the convention was to break up
the Democratic party. That the action of
the convention throughout was improper,
irregular, untimely, without precedent, etc.,
forgetting doubtless that a convention form
ed for the express purpose of electing repre
sentatives to the St. Louis National Conven
tion took upon itself to nominate a govern
or, and when a scarcely audible whisper
was heard as to their assumption of power
for fear of injury to our cause silence was
instantly restored. Yet when this March
convention suggests a name for governor,
many were found to blame the convention
and its proceedings in unmeasured terms.
Some papers of the State were lond mouthed
'nst it-notably among them was the
.ews and Courier. The same paper which
put forth such strenuous efforts to rivet on
this State the chains forged to bind her peo
ple, by doing what it could to secure be
yond a doubt Chamberlain instead of Hanip
ton, and so soon as it found Hampton had
the inside track, as quick as thought, be
came so blatant in its sickening, fulsome
praise of the latter, it made the welkin ring
and convinced the unknown that the eos
and Courier deserved the credit of bringing
Hampton forward, and with bugle blast led
him on to single-handed victory. I regret
exceedingly to have to admit and state that
that cunning fox the News and Courier is the
text book of many of its readers who seem
to swallow down every political item therein
contained as gospel truth, and imbibe free
ly and fully all the prejudices of that paper.
In their conversation you can plainly see
that they have taken long and frequent
draughts from the .News and Courier fount
ain, and have thereby become intoxicated
and look upon all who differ in the least
from them as blind, ignorant, and foolish,
or designedly knavish and unworthy the
trust and confidence of man. Here and
there exception is taken by the opposition
to the platform, vet no regular attempt has
been made to combat it; but 'is if the chief
objection is to the standard-bearer, Anathe
mas are constantly hurled upon his devoted
head, accondpanied with the exclamation,
anybody but Tillman. Do not let us be
fooled by their cry. It is not Tillnman they
are after, they only seek to strike us over
Tillman's shoulders. If we had any other
standard bearer, the result would be the
same, presumably against him, when, in
truth, they get behind him as a shield to en
able them the better to strike us a death
blow ere we are aware of their object. They
are looking everywhere, studying every de
vice ever tried, inventing schemes to thwart
our purpose and would throttle you in the
dark, stab you under the fifth rib with an
unseen hand, or hire your assassination
rather than give up their power. Instead
of wasting so much precious time in their
evil designs it would be far more becoming
to be striving in a fraternal manner (as sug
gested in our platform) to reconcile all dif
ferences and jointly prepare to meet the
It behooves us to say something in com
mendation of the standard bearer. Of the
three before the public, how many of them
have the boldness to come forward and es
pouse the cause of the down-trodden and
despised farmer? One only and that one
B. Ri. Tiliman. He studied out our condi
tion, spent years (giving freely both his
time and money) to arouse us from an al
most deathlike sleep, besought us earnestly
t' awake and look around us, take special
notice of our surroundings, look closely in
to our affairs, note carefully our dependent
condition, and search into the cause or
causes of our reduced condition. Being
one of us, he was most fit by position, natu
ral endowments and culture. aiding, to
know and point out the wants and trials in
cident to farmers, indicate the probable
causes and suggest remedies therefor. ,All
this he cheerfully did, although for years he
received ridicule and jeers from many quar
ters and that too from those lie sought to
benefit. What else has he done? He has
placed himself fairly and squarely on the
platform. 'What has either of the other as
pirants for nomination done directly for the
interests of the farmer? If anything let
some one answer. Nothing? Then noth
ing it is.
Now how stands the case? Who so de
serves and ie so likely to get the cheerful
support of the farmer as B. R~. Till man ?
With Tillnman for governor we would be
but little benetitted unless wec put the right
men in the Legislature and Congress. Be
sure of this and that their actions and
promises are consistent with our demands.

"HUNGER IS THE BEST SAUCE."
As a rule a person who has a good appe
tite has good health. But how many there
are who enjoy nothing they eat, antd sit
down to meals only as an unpleasant duty.
Nature's antidotes for this condition are so
happily comblined in Hood's Sarsaparilla
that it soon restores good digestion, creates
an appetite, and renovates and vitalizes the
blood so that the beneticial effect of good
food is imparted to the whole body. Truly
hunger is the best sauce, and Hood's Sarsa
parilla induces hunger.
He lias the Brains.
'The Spartanburg lkrold, tan Anti-Tillman
paper, speaking of the carapaign meeting at
that place, has this to say:
"Mr. T1'ilhan has come and gone. He has
excite-d much commient, but even his ene
mies concede that he proved himself a brainy
man and an able orator'. Before the masses
his competitors were unable to cope with
him. The day was his."
After all the best way to know the real
merit of Hood's Sarsaparilla is to try it1
