SnvF.E, Jan. 12.--I made my bow for
Christmas in due time, but owing to ill
heahh this could not see the light. 1890 is
now numbered with the past. The old year
with all its vicissitudes, cares, glories, and
revelries will be seen no more forever. Our
thoughts may go back. Ab, what record it
has made upon our lives can only be rea
lized at the great day. Chiistmas was pleas
antly enjoyed. The weather was very in
cleent, to say the least it was disagreeable.
But with all this we spent our Christmas
abroad, feasted, and talked the time away.
One of our visits was of the most sociable
kind. -We joined a party to pay homage to
one whose venerable life has a history,
whose ministerial character has no euzual,
whose age exceeds many of which in his
8th year lie is a living monument, one who
can "preach with as much power and
strength, whose voice to-day is as strong and
melodious as on his first entrance into the
ministry. Rev. H. W. Mahoney is one of
the most remarkable men in this whole sec
tion of church history. H2 has been pastor
of Calvary Baptist church for sixty-two
years. It was at his eldest son's, Mr. J. H.
Mahoney's, by his special invitation, we
dined on Christmas day. He desired to se
lect the party as inear the age of his father
as possible. The dinner was given espec
ially to his aged father, and it is more than
likely such another opportunity never will
be afforded us. While the preparations were
of the most inviting kind, and Mr. and Mrs.
Mahoney did everything in their powver to
redrtergue'sts agreeable, comfortable
and happy, w-hile their bountiful table was
spread with many viands, we yet felt sad,
for there were few among the invited guests
that will probably meet on another Christ

On New Year's day we visited Packsville.
This suburban town is coming into notice.
Since the erection of the fine Baptist church~
Packsville looks breezy. It may be with a
litte capital, her city incorporated, that
this will prove a prosperous town. Without
incorporation no little town can maintain
its good society. P'acksville, like Silver, is
daily infested with drunken and rowdy
negroes who buy their hellfireation drops
in Sumter, get off at these two stations, dc
all manner of devilment, knowing there is
Ino locid law to punish them. I this'k the
-legislature acted very unwisely in not in
Scorporating these two stations.
But this was a day long to be remembered.
t.It as a time, the crowning event of the se
SIries of similar afinirs that have character
ized the holiday season this year; the Packs
ville tournament. The riding was jus
Sj"simply splendid." 'There were nine knight

1lAnd last and least in sizd, but as gallant an

Mules and Horses at Auc.ion in Man
ning, Wednesday, Jai. 21.
We have received a telegram from
Mr. Charles McCatferty saying that
he will be in Manning next Wednes
day, January 21st, with a carload of
excellent horses and mules. These
mules and horses will be sold at auc
tion, and the sale will take place, re
gardless of the price bid for stock, or
the state of the weather.
Mr. Charles McCafferty is well
known throughout this county, and in
fact throughout the State, and it is
useless for us to say that the bare an
nouncement that Mcfafferty will be
in town next Wednesday is sufficient
to draw an immense crowd to town.
Everybody who has any desire to buy
a horse will be here.
The business transactions of this
gentleman are always characterized
with fairness and honesty.
Farmers and others desirous of ob
tainig great bargains should not fail
to attend this sale.
Carolina North-South Road.
EDITOR MANNING Tirs:-In last week's
article attention was called to the fact that
indicated air lines must often be varied
from, in location, according to obstacles.
Writing for laymen rather than profession
als, the language should, perhaps, have been,
'according to obstacles encountered, or ad
vantages offered;" for, with professionals,
obstacles are negative advantages-advan
tages, negative obstacles. Proceeding from
Augusta, for instance, along the propbsed
west-east route, it might be found advan
tageous to deflect the line first to the town
of Aiken, then to that of Orangeburgh, so
as to get the greatest possible number of
communities near the direct course inter
ested in its construction. Then, "with a
strong lift, a long lift and a lift altogether"

On reaching Manning, a choice of routes
presents itself; Sumter, Camdekn, Lancaster
and Charlotte being the guiding points of
one-Mayesville, Chesterfield, Wadesbor

Surveys and subscriptions are the only
practical tests by which to r-ach a wise de
cision; surveys revealing obstacles and ad
vantages of evety kind-subscriptions, the
lifting power along the route. After all,
however, capitalists have to furnish the
money to build railroads; the people along a
line can only encourage, and exchange mus
cle for gold.
Comparing distances: (1) Charleston to

a very serious accident while attempt

The engine was backing a train of
cars into the side track to take up a
box car standing there. The conduc

and couple the car, but not coming at
once, the conductor attempted to do
the coupling himself. The, coupling
pin had dropped on the ground be

pick it up, he was struck by the end
of the train that was being backed in,
and was thrown with his body be

SrmTEn, S. C., Jan. 12, 1891.
Editor Manning Times:-Please an
nounce to our filends in Clarendon
that we are prepared to make the very
best terms with the members of the
Fat mers' Alliance. Last year we did
a very extensive business with the
memlbers of this order, aud our busi
ness relations were very pleasant, so
much so that we are anxious for a
continuance of that patronage. In or
der to be fully prepared to meet their
demands we have made complete ar
rangements to furnish everything that
a farmer may desire, and we guaran
tee to furnish the very best quality of
goods as cheap as any other house in
the city of Sumter.
Past experience teaches us that it
would not be wise to make our con
tracts for fertilizers too late in the sea
son, as it very often happens that the
shipping facilities become blocked and
the farmer is thiown back with his
work, thereby losing a great deal of
valuable time, so we made our con
tracts with the very best fertilizer
factories last fall with the understand
ing that our goods were to be shipped
at once. By doing this we are pre
pared to supply our customers with
the best grades without delay.
Our meat warehouse is already
packed with choice meats which we
purchased while the market was low,
and we can furnish it cheaper at our
store now than it can be purchased
in Chicago. All of our heavy gro
ceries were carefully purchased by
one of the firm who has just returned
from the west, where he spent some
time in the interest of business.
We are still offering great induce
ments to the purchasing public by
selling them a magnificent line of
dress goods, trimmings, faLcy goods,
novelties, hosiery, cloaks, sacques,
wraps, and shawls at prices that are
We still have in stock a fine lot of
flannels that we challenge any house
in the State to excel in quality and
price. Our stock of long cloths, cam
brics, muslins, and other white goods
have been placed among the goods
that we call "drives."
Shoes made from the very best ma
terial and bought by special contract
from the most reliable manufacturers
are in stock in abundance and will be
sold at bargains. In this stock we
feel warranted in saying tiat we can
furnish any lady, gentleman, or child
a good article for less money than
they can purchase elsewhere.
Our clothing and hats and gents'
furnishing departments are open for
the scrutiny of the most critical, and
we invite an inspection of these de
partmenits, because we feel satisfied
that our purchases have been made
with such care as to place us in a
position to compete with any opposi
We 'realize the fact that since the
organization of the Farmers' Alliance
a.great many farmers have made their
arrangements so as to be independent
of any particular merchant, because
they have the cash to buy with and
of course will purchase where the
best advanttges are offered them.
Last yeaIr we supplied a great many
sub-alliances, and we expect to supply
more this year, as it has become known
that one of our business-principles is
to not allow any business house doing
an honest, legitimate business to un
dersell us. Yours respectfully,

The Clemson College trustees are

There is only one Swift's Specific
(S. S. S.), and there is nothing like it.
Do not be deceived by the numerous
imitations, substitutes, frauds, etc.,
which are being pushed on the public
by persons whose desire is to make
money on the credulous. S. S. S. is
a distinct medicine, is different from
any other remedy. It must not be
classed with the old worn out potash,
mercury, sarsaparilla, thousand-doses
for-a-sbilling articles, which are ad
vertised, as t is not at all like them.
S. S. S. cures by eliminating the pois
on from the blood by its action on the
skin, and never fails to give relief and
build up the health of the patient.
Our treatise on blood and skin dis
eases will give much yaluable inform
ation, and will be mailed free to ap
plicants. SWIFT SPECIFIC CO.,

"Some time ago we published a
short story entitled 'Buried Alive,'
written by Mr. McDonald Furman, a
young man who formerly attended
school here. As some people believe
that he really underwent such a thrill
ing episode, we take this opportunity
of saying that the story is simply an
imaginative one. Mr. Furman has
written quite a number of stories, and
this is one of his most fascinating

X white man by the name of Kennedy was
killed by Jim Days, a negro, in the Cedar
creek section last week. Our information
is that they were in the woods together when
a dispute arose between them as to whether
the white man's horse was sick or not. Hot
words were used by both parties, the result
of which was that the negro struck Kennedy
on the head with his ax and knocked him
down, and repeated the blow on his head
after he was down. He died in a short
time. The negro made his escape.
IF YOUR HOUSE IS ON FIRE
You put water on the burning timbers, not
on the smoko. And if you have catarrh you
should attack the disease in the blood, not
in your nose. Remove the impure cause,
and the local effect subsides. To do this,
take Hood's sarsaparilla, the great blood pu
rifier, which radically and permanently
cures eatarrh. It also strengthens the nerves.
Be sure to get only Hood's sarsaparilla.

GonRGETowN, Jan. 11.-The entire saw
mill plant of the Alderman Lumber Compa

been entirely destroyed by fire. The build
ings belonged to L. S. Ehrich, valued at
$1,000; machinery and fixtures to the com
pany, valued at $7,000. No insurance. The
fire is supposed to be incendiary, as the
mill shut down at 12 m. yesterday. The fire
started at 3 p. m. to-day. The boiler is not
injured. A mule perished in the fire. A
.small quantity of lumber was destroyed.
