Sometime ago we called attention
to the promiscuous shooting of pistols
t night about town, and for awhile
after there wvas but little of it, but the
miscreants have again started their
mischievous sport. Last -Saturday
night pistol shots could be heard in
very direction, and if these parties
are not stopped they will through
their carelessness take some innocent
life. The marshals should try to find
out who it is that is doing this mis
hief, and if they find them arrest
them at once and let the council teach
them a lesson.
Last Friday night as the residents
on church street were about to retire
for the night, some individual, sup
posed to be white, and who evidently
had been imbibing too freely of "lethe
an waters of fiery disposition and car
mine hue," must have imagined that
the town had become depopulated,
and that he was "lord of all he sur
veyed," judging from the manner in
which he allowed his vile tongue to
rattle off curses, threats, oaths, and all
sorts of nonsensical hurrahs and brags
of what he would do in case any man
that was not of his political persua
sion should attempt to interfere with
We are informed that the C. S. &
N. railroad company wiM soon com

they propose to turn over to the Alli

our merchants will be asleep to their
interests if they do not go to work at
once to offer some inducements for
the people to bring their cotton here,
for once the cotton is allowed to slip
from Manning it will take a long time
to recover the loss, and if anything is
to be done for the business interest
of the town it should be done imme
diately, or such places as Summerton,
Silver, and Packsville will take the
trade that should be ours.
Campaign literature is being dis
tributed throughout this county by
the Antis. This literature is a part of
the result of the "noble four hundred"
onvention, and is being sent out by
Gen. John D. Kennedy, chairman of
the advisory committee. We suppose
that such tactics are used in China,
where Gen. Kennedy resided for a
few years, and may be termed in our
language Chinese tactics. The circu
lars are three in number and headed
as follows: "Farmer Peterkin on the
Stump," "Farmer Ancrum on B. R.
Tillman," and "A Pretty Man for
Governor." Therefore we can safely

The Sumter Leaders.
The Levi Brothers, of Sumter, are
diminishing their well assorted stock
of goods to get ready for the immense
stock that is now being contracted
for. One of the firm is North visiting
all the principal factories and making
his contracts direct with the manufac
turers instead of buying from middle
men. In doing so they buy their
goods cheaper and as a natural conse
quence can sell cheaper than those
merchants who are forced to buy on
long time from middle men.
These gentlemen have every reason
to congratulate themselves upon the
success they have made since opening
business in Sumter, and the esteem
they have won from their patrons.
They went to Sumter right in the
face of old and experienced mer
chants, and by their strict attention to
business and honest and upright
dealings they were not long in prov

An Insult to Clarendon.
The editor of the Sumter W~atchliman, in
the last issue of that paper, has the follow
ing to say of the insulting banner, which
was taken down, not by the person getting
it up, but by the sher-ef acting under instruc
tions from the county chairman:
One of the banners on the grounds, among
others there displayed, was "Mahone start
ed out as a Democrat." This was taken
down early in the day, however, by the per
son getting it up. Afterwards there was
considerable talk as to what an outrage it
would have been- "a vile insinuation.'
But there were a good many who failed to
see anything more than a fact, well known,
and a suggestive warning given.

up medicine and blood purifier. It has
won its way to the front by its own intrinsic
merit, and has the largest sale of any pre

Crops and Politics at Davis.
EDITon M1isiG T~IFEs-As I furnished
you a few dots from this section last week .
will give you a few for this week. Our sec
tion since then has been visited with re
freshing rains, and we are all cheerful and
hopeful. All praise to the giver of every
good and perfect gift. The crops up to thai
time were suffering severely. The advanced
or early planted corn was too forward in
age to receive much if any benefit thereby,
but late corn was very much helped and
will do very well, though the corn crop gen
erally will be considerably shorter than last
year, yet I think there will be a tolerably
fair crop made in this neighborhood. Cotton
though checked and retarded by the contin
ed dry weather, has and is improving rap.
idly, and if the rains are rLot too heavy and
frequent for the next few days to cause too
much shedding of its fruit I think the ex
pectations of a fair crop will be realized,
Other field crops such as rice, potatoes, &c.,
are and will be as good as last year, and
probably somewhat better. The crops are
all now laid by and the farmers will have a
fews days recreation and after awhile gath
ering fodder will be the order of the day for
a short while and when that is over then
next comes the gathering of the fleecy staple
and other crops.
Polities in this section is very quiet, and
all the voters are still for Farmer Ben. The
Manning campaign meeting has been held
and is now numbered with political mneetings
of the past, and not a single convert to a con
tinuation of ring rule and bossism has been
made and the decree has gone forth so far as
the Tillmanites of Clarendon are concerned,
for we intend to stick to the candidate of the
March convention to the last let come what
may. The campaign meeting at Manning
has certainly proved a hiumiliating failure
to the Antis and they as well as their candi
dates and especially the great gamecock of

and expected to sweep the old State like ai

picke t lines, see the people. hear them talk,
and know how they stand on political is
sues. This we have done; all this we have
found out. I never saw a greater upheaval,
t more united people on political issue-s.
There is certainly a great tide moving
below the surface of the people, other than
Tillnanism. What is it?
We passed through Summerton to Jordan.
For Summerton and her people, I have the
greatest hope. The energy, pluck, and per
severance of the Suimertonians put them
in the front rank. They have built no ordi

her merchants sell cheap; a fine school soon

Foreston was reached a little after night.
Mr. W. T. P. Sprott took charge of our
horse. We stopped over night at the elegant
and hospitable home of Mr. B. 0. Cantey.
We attended prayer meeting at the Method
ist chuurch, and listened to a fine, thought
ful exhortation from Rev. Mr. Bissel on
God's love. A sweet refreshing sleep after
much fatigue and intricate travel, enabled
us next morning to take in a full view of
the town and people. Broad Branch, mid
way from Foreston to Brewington, is in the
ring of the greatest prosperity. The farm
ers are of one sentiment: they look to be
full of enterprise. Along this road from
Foreston we saw some fine corn and luxuri
ant cotton. In the Brewington section
crops are unusually fine. The lake is a
charming water course, across which spans
the long Brewington bridge. To cross the
northern prong of Black River, was a her
culean task. Commissioner Hobbs has
been there. Our pony gave way more than
once, but with effort after effort she went

been the greatest pleasure to visit those
people: you simply are at ease in every

Their homes are open to the stranger. In
Salem at this time you have a plenty of de
licious sweet cider, watermelons, and fruit
of every variety. A night spent with Mr.
Joe Gibbons was indeed pleasant. Capt.
Pat Gibbons was there in his usual habili
nient of humor. This old Roman of seven
ty-nine sumnners is as young and cheerful
as a school boy. His polhtical views are
sought for by those-who inquire, and when
he gives an opinion as to how the political
pot boils, you may just as well fold your arms.
WVe found Tillman very strong in Salem.
To get the vote of the people, a candidate

to do, for w~e were decidedly Tilhman all

>e kept quite still here of late: the few An
is among us have become very cool with
)ut little to say about the situation. We
>rganized at Reedsville on the 19th inst.,
all solid for Tillman.
Crops are looking pretty well. We had a
ieavy rainfall on the 25th inst., heavier
han any since crops were planted. Mr. J.
ff. Barrow has the finest cotton your cor
-spondent has seen and Mr. S. F. Curry
he finest sorgum cane. Watermelons seem
,o be plentiful.
Mr. D. P. Kirby's wife was taken very ill
>n the night the 2-1th inst., but was some
)etter on the 26th.
Mr. W. H. Curry has a promising Sun
lay-school at the Uuion school house. No
veddings nor deaths amons us. The health
>f the community is very good.
SANDY GRovE, August 4. -Our club has
Rlected its delegates, all solid for Tillman
tnd reform but uninstructed as to county
The Antis in our midst seem from the
naneuvering around to think that Maj.
[and can land them on the other side of
he river, but if all reports be true he'll find
iimself and followers left on the do-nothing
dde. The cry is repeal the lien and home
tead laws, or that give us the homestead
aw in its creative purpose and abolish the
ien law, and let the farmer live.
Our contesting candidates for the Senate
vere among us the other day, all good fel
ows, very complimentary.
Mr. J. Mc. Smith, of Darlington, formerly
)f Williamsburg, was interred at the old
smith burying ground the 2nd inst. He
lied of sunstroke. He leaves many rela
ives and friends to mourn their loss.
The health of the community is tolerably
Iood; seasons fine; crops looking well.
Iurrah for Tillman! SAM TATTLER.
What a Leading Physician Says.
Dr. R. S. Gordon, a leading phy
ician of Mt. Carmel, Ill., writes the
'ollowing under date March 10, 1890:
'I cheerfully recommend Swift's Spe
ific (S. S. S.) as a tonic and general
lealth restorer, also in case of blood
poison it always gives satisfaction."
Years of Suffering.
"For years I have been troubled
with a blood taint that has baffled the
ikill of the best physicians of Ohio
tud Indiana, the disease finally effect
ed my eyes to such an extent that I
was almost blind. I was then induced
to take a course of Swift's Specific (S.
S. S.) and am thankful to say that a!
er taking a few bottles I was entirely
3ured. My eyesight is entirely re
stored, and my general health is bet
ter than it has been for years, and
there is no trace of the disease left. I
consider S. S. S. the best blood puri
ler and general health tonic to-day on
the market." OscAR WILEs,

Tillman has come and gone. The 26th
inst. which was looked forward to with so
eeuch eager expectancy by the rank and file
>f Claren don's Democracy has also been
placed upon the calendar of the past. And
what a glorious record too will be written
or that day. Clarendon is proud of her
ions; they have added new lustre to the
Eir name of their county, and once more
proved themselves as in the past, nature's
eoblemen. Earle has spoken: what a quiet
ind dignified hearing he received. What a
:ontrast to Sumter. Where were the Clar
endon toughs that they did not howl him
lown ? there were none there. The tough
is not indigenous to the soil of Clarendon.
Eou will have to look elsewhere for the con
lition of soil and climate to mature that
plant, probably in the neighborhood of
harleston and Columbia.
What a rebuke to Sumter was the meeting
f the 26th. After they had heaped insult
>n the men of Clarendon, and then to sully
Ler fair name by denominating them roughs,
:oughs, and rowdies, notwithstanding the
evidence of Capt. Bob Howell, Col. Fowler,
nd others. The boys of Clarendon took
he most effective means of giving such pub
ic misstatements the lie direct, and proving
o the world that they are a quiet and order
y body of men. They will have to look to
>ther sources for the disgraceful conduct at
Sumiter, and I would suggest as the root of
hat day's evil the Earle infantile brigade
mnd Haskell's bull-dozers. Tillman, the
aian whom Clarendon delights to honor,
rollowed Earle and was listened to with
marked attention, with the exception of two
>ther attempts at interruption from Col.
Earle. Straws show whiech way the wind
blows. J. H. Earle is the last man who
should have attempted any such thing, and
we are glad that Mr. Tillman rebuked him.
[t just occurs to mc that if Col. Earle had
arnestly tried to control his mad howlers
imported) at the Sumter meeting Sumter at
east would not have had the mortification
f having such a1 disgraceful page written in
er history. Well done, Clarendon ! nobly
lone ! You have removed a stigma from
four name and placed it where it belongs,
m the county of Sumter, and more espec
ally on those who call themselve Anti
