THE MANNING TIMES.
S. A. NETTLES, Editor.
WEDNESDAY, February 4, 1891.
ACTIVITY IN MANNING.
Manning certainly has taken on
new life, and there is apparently a far
brighter future in store. A number
of changes in real estate have taen
place of late, and this is always indi
cative of active life. There are still
further changes and improvements in
contemplation, and a year hence will
show a long stride forward. -The
great trouble is too many of our peo
ple are clammish, selfish: with some
of them, if they can help themselves
to some big profit at the expense of
somebody else, it greatly pleases
them; if by helping themselves, they
help some one else and build up the
town, they hesitate; but if a little ef
fort on their part would boom the
town to twice its proportions, and yet
not give them huge profits on their
investment, if it would help others
greatly and themselves directly only
a little, they would see their arm par
alyzed before lending an iota of as
sistance. We are glad to say, howev
er, there are a few young men in this
place, who act differently, and by
their efforts the town is advancing.
These young men have small capital
but big energies and they will make
their influence felt, and Manning will
be the better for it.
The Building and Loan Association
and the Dime Savings Association
are each small institutions, handling
together but about $6,000 a year, yet
they- are doing good, and building up
A land improvement company is
talked of, and would do much to im
prove our town. It would build
more houses, fill them with people,
and help our town in every respect.
Such being the case, why not organ
ize the company? $5,000 stock, di
vided into 500 shares of $10 each
ought to be readily taken, and $5,000
would do much, very much, towards
upbuilding our town. $5,000 to a
number of our capitalists sounds very
small, but handled properly, turned
over rapidly, it would benefit thE
town more than $500,000 handled the
way capital is ordinarily handled it
There will always be drones in ev
ery hive, but the town must and wil
nevertheless advance. The live, pro
gressive men of the place must pusl
A TEACHERS' CONVENTION.
School Commissioner Ragin seem
fully alive to the duties of his office
and is endeavoring to advance th4
educational interests of the county
In another column will be found acal
for a county Teachers' Association
Such an organization is greatly need
ed, and is capable of effecting grea
good. Teachers need the elbow touch
and should eagerly seek out any ani
every association that will bring then
closer together. We think a count'
-association a necessity, and tha
teachers should be forced to attent
and take part in the exercises. In on
opinion any teacher who will not en
deavor to advance in his profession
should be debarred the right to teach

We hope there, will be a large at

in the success of the association.
R A IE FINE POULTRY.
Our people are advancing in man;
things, and among others we call at
tention to the raising of fine poultry
It costs very little on the farm to rais,
chickens, and by a very little attentioi
the wife or daughter might easil:
make one or- two hundred dollars
year in this way. Eggs and chicken
always find a ready sale and a fai
-price. It costs very little more t<
handle fine fowls than the ordinar:
kinds, and they will weigh about twic<
as much and lay twice as many eggs
Mr. W. B. Murray, af Sumter, offer
eggs for sale, and wihile the price ma;
appear high yet the inc'reased value i1
weight and egg production will mak
thiem very cheap. We want to se
our people try this fine poultry busi
ness, and we believe they will find bi,
money in it.

Scrofula All His Life. t
I consider my cure by S. S. S. one h
of the most wonderful on record. I
had the worst type of scrofula from'I
my infancy until I was 22 years of
age. My whole young life was embit
tered and made miserable by the
loathsome disease. I not only suffer-1
ed from the scrofula, but was so
-marked that I was ashamed to associ- 1
ate with, and was avoided by, my I
playmates and fellow wvorkmen. I tri
ed every known patent medicine, and
was first and last attended by more
than a dozen reputable physicians, but
in spite of all, the disease c6ntinued
to grow worse. About four years ago
a friend from Pittsburg advised mec to
take S. S. S., which I did, and after
taking seveu bottles I was cured
sound and well. The old skin peeled
Soff and was replaced by a new skin,
-as smooth and free from blemish as
any person. I have had no return or
symptom of the disease.

e Let's reason together. Here's a firm, one
i of the largest the country over, the world
over; it has grown, step by step, through the
years to greatness-and it sells patent med
e icines !-ut h !
e "That's enoungh !"
- Wait a lit :le
sThis firm pays the newspapers good mon
ey (expensive work, this advertising!) to tell
the people that they have faith in what they
fsell, so much faith that if they can't benelit
or cure they don't want your money. Their
guaratee is not indefinite and relative, but
definite and absoute-if the medicine doesn't
help, your money is "on cad."
1 Suppose every sick man aid every feeble
woman tried these medicines and found
them worthless, who would be the loser, you
or they ?
SThe medicines are Dr. Pierce's "Golden
- Medical Discovery,' for blood diseases, and
his "Favorite Prescription," for woman's
peculiar ills. If they help toward health,
they cost $1.00 a bottle each ! It they don't,
Sthey cost nothbag !
The Statesburg sub-alliance passed the
Sfollowing resolutions at their last meeting:
SResolved 1. That: the Alliance should
-teach all its members that all charges
against brother members for failure to live
and act up to Alliance principles and meth
ods must be preferred through Alliance
channels to be entertained by the Alliance.
Resolved 2. That we commend in the
higheet terms the well-timed and well-tem-.
pered reply of our State President, Brother
Stokes, to Brother Keitt's gross charges, and
pledge him as our chosen leader, e arnest,
active, and determined support against all
assailants while he shows himself, as at
present he appears, able, zealous, and faith
ful to the Order.

e allowed to have any of the attar
roses in their dwellings. Very se

roses were known in Chiua, the

CHAIR SCARF.-Turkish towels, or
ny of the various faucy weaves in
triipes, borders, or figures, are used
r this purpose where something is
ceded that may be easily laundered.
hey have replaced crocheted and
mbroidered tidies in many homes
here time is precious and easy
hairs are for use,,not ornament.
hey are often seen tied in a loose,
oft knot in the middle, if theirlength
ill permit, or conilned by a band of
oft, broad ribbon, tied in a large
>w. The ribbon is expensive and
oon soiled, but the cord and tassels
ere shown are almost indestructible
.nd are as easily cleansed as is the
owel itself. Of white or tinted darn
ng cotton, or of some of the fine
ords used for fancy knitting or
rochet, make a large, twisted cord
trifle more than twice as long as
he towvel is wide, cut it in twvo, and
un both pieces out and in like a
~athering thread across the middle of
he towel, about an inch apart, taking
nh-long stitches. Finish the two
ds together with one tassel, which
ives only one on each side of the
oel. When drawn up and tied it
orms a cluster of four nice loops and
wo tasseled ends. It is never slip
ing out of place, or lost-either from
he chair or washing, and it may, al
ogether, be spread out flatly or foldl
d when necessary as smoothly as
y towel. One might think a large
~ord could not be run through the
~loth in that way, but it can he done
vithout breaking a thread, even if
he towel is quite firm, by ruking
he perforations with a stilett'; but
owels of fine firm texture are seldom
2sed as chair scarfs. Prettyv towel
haped chair scarfs can be made from
he coarse, white linen salt-bags so
~ommon in farmers' homes, by fring
ng the ends, turning hems an inch
md a half wide along the sides, and
dding several lengthwise rows of
Irawnwork mole 0or less wide, ac
ording to fancy or the time at one's
lisposal; there shoutld always be one
r two rows just inside each hemo.
j'he tassels should be of white darn
g cotton, if white thread is eblosen
or the drawn work; if a color is used,
little of it should be mingled with
e wldte in the cord amid tassels.
There is an obligation laid upon
~very one of us-which theoretically,
ve are ready enough to admit-to do
>ur best to make hoice cheerful, and
righten so much as in us lies the
ives of those about us. The world is
>ften a saddening place enough, and
ife is full of trouble, anxiety, and dis
ppointment; but to some extent it is
n our power-not to shut trouble or
3orrowv out of our homes, no one can
o that; but to make the best of
hem when they have entered, and
not add despondency to anxiety, and
moroseness to disappointment. It
loes no one any good to meet trouble
Lialf way; but when it is here, and
aan no longer be ignored, it is best to
Face it boldly. No one was ever
2elped yet by lookirng exclusively on
he worst side of things, but those
vho face trouble boldly are less likely'
:o do this than the timid, desponding
souls who glance at it furtively, never
iing it in all its aspects, and conse
guently, never even ascertaining if it

What is Scrofula
It is that impurity in the blood, which, accumu
lating in the glands of the neck, produces un.
sightly lumps or swellings; which causes painful
running sores on the arms, legs, or feet; which
deveopes ulcers in the eyes, ears, or nose, often
causing blindness or deafnless; whichis the origin
of pimples, cancerous growths, or many other
manifestations usually ascribed to "humors."
It is a more formidable enemy than consumption
or cancer alone, for scrofula combines the worst
possible featuresof both. Being the most ancient,
it is the most general of all diseases or affections,
for very few persons are entirely free from it.
How can it be cured ? By taking Hood's Sarsa
parila, which, by the cures it has accomplished,
often when other medicines have failed, has
proven itself to be a potent and peculiar medicine
for this disease. For all affections of the blood
Hood's Sarsaparillais unequnled, and some of the
cures it has effected are really wonderful. If you
sufer from scrofula in any of its various forms,
b sure to give Hood's sarsaparilla a trial.
