It apparently is one of the simplest and
most valuable inventions of the time, being
simple in construction and automatic in
action. As soon as a train slows up, the
brakes are immediately and automatically
applied and the train .stopped. Starting
the train takes off the breaks. In case of
shifting, the brakes may be, thrown oft in
stantly, and when the train is made up they
may as easily be put on again. Everything
is simple, with no springs or complicated
mchiery to get out of order, and the at
tachment may at a small cost be applied to
the brakes already in use on the cars.
It covers practically the same field as the
present air brakes, except it is far simpler
in construction and the cost of mianufactur
ing will be comparatively' very small. In
case a train in motion should be broken the
brakes on the detached part would be put
on at once, and that part of the train stop
ped. Of course with this invention there
will be no need of brakemen.

A Gallant Ride'r.
Mr. Meyer Behal, one of Philadelphia's
cavaliers,'while out horseback riding last
Monday, looking at the beautiful scenery
around Manning. was so carried away with
the grandeur that presented itself that he
forgot the hours were fleeting. When he
noted that it was growing late he also dis
overed that he was taking in more scenery
and grandeur than dinner. So he turned
his steed homeward, and dashing forth like
one of the ancient anights he rode onward
neither looking to the right of him rior to
the left of him. Just as he approached the
mercantile portion of our beautiful town,
still thinking of the beautiful sights he had
left behind, his revdries were suddenly dis
tnrbed by a slight change of position on the
part of the noble steed, and then this gal
lant rider assumed the role of M'Ginty, and
down went he, dressed in his uncle 3Moses's
Proudly he rose froni his change of base,
and swearing vengeance on the horse he
quietly and meekly took hold of the bridle
and led the noble animal back into his sta
ble, and as he turned his back on the horse's
habitation he soliloquized thus: "I read in
Shakespeare that some one offered a king
dom for a horse, but if that is the kind of a
horse that was wanted, then I say 'what
fools we mortals be.'"
A lady who was an eye witness to the
gymnastic performance of our gallant friend
from Quakertown was a little later in the
store of a relative of the gentleman, doing
some shopping. She walked up to another
gentleman, mistaking him for the hero of
tis episode, and asked him if he was not
from the North. Being answered in the --
frmative she said: "I thought so from the
little knowledge you displayed of horseback
riding: my little four.year-old boy can beat
ou riding and not half try." The gentle
man with whom this conversation occurred
assured the lady that she was the victim of
a case of mistaken identity. An apology
was rendered, and they p)arted perhaps
never to meet again.
While all this was going on our jovial
friend from the "brotheily city" was enjoy
ing the pleasure of brushing the dirt from
ucle Moses's borrowed coat in the back lot,
and muttering unto himself a lecture on the
art of horsemanship.

- Editor Manning Times:-We de
sire to call attention through the
Manning Times to the fact that we
are offering all our winter goods re
3 gardless of cost, in order to make
r room for an immense spring stock.
In merino and all-wool underwear,
either for ladies, gents, or children, we
have a magnificent line, and special
bargains are offered. All-wool dress
goods, such as flannels, tricots, worst
eds, cashmeres, and merinos, we have
in endless variety of colors and styles,
also all the latest trimmings to match.
The grandest display of cloaks, saques,
wraps, walking jackets, and shawls
that has ever been in Sumter. We
have in our store blankets, comforts,
quilts, and bed-spreads of all kinds,
also sheetings and pillow-casing. All
these goods have been marked down,
and our customers will do well to
take advantage of the special bargains
now being offered by us.
Our clothing department is as fine
as one would desire to look at. We
keep all grades of clothing, and will
sell good suits from $5 and upwards.
In the hat line we can fit men and
boys with hats from twenty-five cents
We also carry a beautiful line of
neckties, scarfs, handkerchiefs (silk
and linen), fine collars and cuffs. An
excellent dress shirt for fifty cents.
Also in this department we have a
nice lot of umbrellas. We sell an
umbrella for one dollar that cannot
be bought elsewhere for less than
double the money.
As an inducement for people to lay
in a full supply of goods now, while
we are giving them the benefit of our
desire to unload our stock, we have
reduced the prices of our shoes, and
are making great "drives" in this line.
We can sell for one dollar and fifty
cents a neat, stylish, and durable but
ton or lace shoe, either for ladies or
gentlemen, which cannot be dupli
cated in material and style for less
than two dollars.
In fact our whole stock is now
ready for people that desire bargains.
We are especially anxious to have our
Clarendon friends call and take ad
vantage of the immense "drives" we
are making. We have a large patron
age from Clarendon, and we feel that
our regular patrons are entitled to all
the extra inducements we can offer.

after he has done this he leaves it for
almost three days. The stained and
blue cotton when taken out is clean
and white, with the staple just as good
as ever. The cotton when packed in
the manner above described generates
heat. This heat removes the stains,
and the farmer is saved the difference
in price between the stained and the
white cotton, besides gaining one
pound in eight in ginning. The heat
generated in the packiug kills the
germ in the cotton seed, but when the
ginning is done the seeds easily let go
all the cotton. Though the seeds are
dead the oil in them is not injured,
and they are still salable to the oil
This shows what a wonderful gain
this may be to the Southern farmer.

As the best evidence of its value it

physicians, with little or no benefit
and only of a temporary nature. Af
ter other treatments had fr.iled ]
bought seven bottles of S. S. S. from
Messrs. Tennille & Holland, of Troy

No Charges Against Gov. Richardson.
The Columbia Becord of the 16th
inst stated that:
"Gov. Tillman was to-day heard to
say that it had been found that no
itemized statements of the amounts
expended out of the contingent fund
of the Governor's office were on file,
or even the vouchers for the same.
He said that it would be seen from
the Comptroller General's report that
the statements were missing, and the
Comptrouler General had no right to
pay out the funds without such a
statement. It is thought,. however,
that the vouchers and statements may
have been misplaced."
The Columbia correspondent of the
Sunday News says:
"Mr. W. E. Gonzales, Ex-Governor
Richardson's private secretary, called
on Governor Tillinan this morning
and the Governor stated to him that
ae did not say that the vouchers for
the disbursement of the contingent
fund were not on file in the Govern
or's office. He merely told the press
representatives that they could see by
a personal examination of the Comp
troller General's report that the state
ment did not appear there and left
them to investigate. This last was
said to the press representatives. To
Mr Gonzales he said he had no fault
to find in the management of the of
aee of the retiring Governor. Inas
much as the News and Courier repre
sentative was the one who sent out
the report, he frankly acknowledges
that he misunderstood Governor Till
man's statement, but must say that
the impression made upon him was as
We're not waiting for the bats and moles
but for men and women who have eyes and
ase them, who have brains and reason!
There's a new world for them-suffering and
rickly as they are-a new world created
rrom the brain of a skillful physician-a
riscovery-the "Golden Medical Discovery."
Years ago Dr. Pierce found out that the
secret of all scrofula, bronchial, throat and
Lung trouble lay-in the beginning at least
-in impure blood and the weak tone of the
system; that the way to cure these effects
was to remove the cause, that human nature
being the same, the same results might be
looked for in nearly all cases. So confident
was he that the exceptions were uncommon
that he took the risk of giving the medicine
to those it didn't benefit for nothing, and
the results have proved that he was right.
And "Golden Medical Discovery" is the
remedy for the million ! The only guaran
leed liver, blood, and lung remedy. Your
money back if it doesn't help you.
