room can be made by taking a small
wooden-backed rocker with a woven
rattan seat and painting it white or
light blue, pink or yellow, and then
dressing it up with a slumber pillow
and a thin square cushion to match.
Sometimes the cushion is made long
enough to hang down in front nearly
to the floor; but it is usually simply
a square cushion covered and decorat
ed like the pillow. These dainty af
fairs are very popular. One white
chair which we saw had a pillow and
cover, made of very coarse figured
wool lace over yellow silk, with the
figures ir, the lace pattern drawn out
by half solid work in yellow.

A Letter from Tom.
SirvEi, Feb. 9.-I could have writ
ten your paper full since my last, but
I had to forbear lest I might find my
doom in the waste basket, that bosom
friend that pockets all such illiterate
For two weeks I have been on the I
go, sonetimes grudgingly, looking
after county affairs, getting ready for
that augurt body some people call the
grand jurors, who look into every
body's business except their own. I
never knew one, please th6 court, to
present themselves. Every approach
ing court we court house hunkadoreys
look for a slap. Beware, is the watch
word. Look out for every bridge that
has a hole in it! A man would be
better stuffed with straw than to fall
into these clutches.
My trip has taught me much and
caused me some anxious solicitude. I
was alone and lonely. I found the
roads from Manning to Brewington
in most excellent condition. Brew
ington lake has many charms for a
stranger. The great bridge which
spans its wAters is safe to cross. There
is no doubt of its excellent condition.
A night at Mr. J. H. Johnson's re
minded me of home, every comfort
necessary to tired nature. His hos
pitality is bouutifully bestowed.
An early start put us to Foreston,
the land of corn. There looked to be
some progress from what we saw two
years ago, but from general impres
sions it will never be a seaport town.
I think it is at its best. With all this
Foreston is a very pretty and desira
ble place in which to live.
On leaving Foreston you come in
contact with all the trouble of the
way, Mt. Hope swamp. The mer
chants stand in their own light to
suffer this miserable crossing to get in
that fix. They for the benefit of their
town should contribute liberally to its
ood condition. It certainly would
benefit their trade. This is the place
that gives "Sufferer"such hypochon
driacal fears. This is the place he
so graphically describes, and says if
not looked after a committee of grand
jurors would be invited to visit. He
certainly forgot Ben Tillman was gov
ernor, and that we are straightout
But how is the causeway to be
remedied ? t was our first visit. I
would like it to be the last, because
its conditiou satisfied me the people
there do not have uuch use for roads
or they would certainly work them.
This ride of over sixty miles fur
nished much food for thought. From
St. Marks church up to Santee town
ship line the public roads were care
fully inspected. I found them all in
good traveling order. In this vast
territory you have a sandy country
with little work to do on roads. I
take it for granted it would scarcely
pay the committee to visit Mount
Hope, for I will be there this week,
and if teams are furnished me there
need be no more fears entertained by
Wyboo bridges in Santee township
were in miserable plight. Public safe
ty required newv bridges. The work
has been thoroughly done. There Mr.
W. G. Frierson. one of the most care
ful, public-spirite d young men in that
whole section of country, came to my
rescue, ordered out the hands, got
teams, fixed the causeway, which I
found almost equal if not in a worse
condition than that of Mount Hope
After a week's tour of inspecting
roads I found Silver attractive. I
found a welcome invitation to be pres
ent on Saturday last at the residence
of Judge J. H. Mahoner, to be one of
the guests at the infair of my staunch
friend, B. W. Cutter, who on Thurs
day previous married one of Claren
don's most charming adopted daugh
ters, Miss Lee Boswell.
I need not say that the dinner gave
us undivided attention. All who have
articipated at Mrs. Mahoney's table
will readily admit that force of argu
ment is always on the side of the hun
gry. The table presented every vari
ety in the eating line. The guests,
who consisted of some of the best
young men and ladies, were delight
fully entertained da .ring the day in
pleasant conversation and other en
joyments. The bride and groom were
the happy recipients of several valua
ble presents by Mr. and Mrs. Ma
honey. The day was one of the most
social gatherings we ever attended.
Silver has taken on new life. The
colored people have erected a new
two-story building which is a credit
to their race. The lower story will be
used as an academy, the upper as a
lodge room. Thisjis progress, an ex
ample to the white people.
Mr. T. B. Owens has purchased a
lot from Mr. A. W. Thames near the
depot, and is building a fine resi
dence. He will also construct a ma
chine shop, where business in his line
will be neatly and cheaply done.
Mr. A. C. Briggs has also made ar
rangements with a contractor, and is
erecting a fine dwelling.
The Silver Academy, controlled by
Mr. Grier White, is in successful op
eration. The Sunday-school in con
nection with the Academy is one of
the finest in the county. It has never
gone into winter quarters.
Much sickness in our community.

Eczema from Childhood.
When an infant my body broke out

section wvas tried or consulted. When
I came of age I visited Hot Springs,

SUMTI, S. C., Feb. 3, 1891.
Editor Manning Times:--In a few
days we propose having a arand open
ing of spring gocds of every descrip
tion, and we can safely say that it will
be the handsomest display ever placed
on exhibition in the city of Sumter.
The goods are arriving on every train,
and our clerks are busy opening them
up. They have been instructed to
mark each piece of goods in plain
figures, so that when our grand open
ing takes place every person that hon
ors our establishment with a visit can
see for themselves how extrem3ly low
our goods will be sold.
While these goods are coming in we
wish our friends to know that we still
have a great many inducements to of
fer them in the way of heavy or wool
en goods, and these must be sold re
gardless of price, because we have
adopted a rule to clear our shelves of
all goods that are about going out of
season. This rule we will stick to, for
it pays better to sell off than to carry
over old stock. As the winter season
draws to a close in order to unload
what winter goods might be on hand,
we mark down everything, thus giv
ing our many patrons an excellent op
portunity of buying very cheap,
cheaper in fact than they can be re
Every reader of the Times is aware
of the fact that since the passage of
the McKinley bill everything in wool
en goods advanced in price, but for
tunately for ourselves and also for the
people that entrusted us with their
confidence and patronage, we watched
the congressional proceedings, and as
soon as we saw that Mr. McKinley
was about to be successful, we at
once began making contracts for fu
ture delivery with the largest dry
goods, clothing, carpet, and hat fac
tories, and some of our future deliv
ery contracts were not completed un
til last month.
By doing this we had the advantage
of every other merchant, and avoided
the sudden advance in price. We did
the same with our shoe contracts, and
we can now sell shoes right from our
shelves as cheap as some merchants
can buy them at wholesale. Hence
the McKinley bill has not hurt us, but
gave those who are buying from us a
decided advantage over their neigh
bors that buy elsewhere.
In our last letter we spoke of our
business in fertilizers, and we believe
we have doubled all the other houses
in Sumter in this line. When car af
ter car came into Sumter loaded with
guano last fall it was a great surprise
to merchants as well as farmers, but
they now see that we knew what we
were doing by placing our contracts
far in advance of everybody else. As
a consequence we are selling cotton
seed meal seventy-five cents a ton
cheaper than it can be bought to-day
at the factories, and we are doing the
same with guanos and all other fer
We realize the fact that our patrons
are principally farmers, and it be
hooves us to look out for their inter
ests, because by benefitting the farmer
we are3 benefitting the mainstay to the
immenise business conducted by us,
and we advance as the farmer ad
We have everything in the grocery
line that a well regulated household
can desire or a plantation may use,
and we ask your readers to come to
Sumter and give our establishment a

getting our prices we are satisfied that
we can sell to the closest buyer, be
cause we are close buyers ourselves
and in the center of close competi

$20 per Bushel ror Cotton Seed.
I am now offering 100 bushels of a new
variety of improved Peterkin Seed for sale
at $20 per bushel, or $5 per peck. It is a
limed cluster, vecry prolific, fruits from the
ground to thc top, and matures every boll.
Not liable to dry forms on stalk like other
prolifics; not liable to fall out like other
clusters; makes about the same turn-out of
lint as the well known Peterkin, (from 38 to
40 per cent.)
I have three years experience with this
cotton, and can say I believe it to be the best
cotton now in existence.
I have never offered it for sale before, and
have only 100 bushels for sale. Order right
away if you want them.
I am still offering my well known variety
at $1.50 per bushel, price reduced on large
Cash must accompany orders and freight
prepaid, as railroad will not accept cotton
seed without prepaying freight. The price
on improved seed will not be reduced by
taking over a peck, but will be in the others
if ordered in large lots.
The farmer who buys a peek of the im
proved seed, will consider himself fortunate
next fall. I have never seen anything to
equal it. JAS. A. PETERKIN.

MR. EDrron:-My attentior. has been
called to a communication signed "sufferer,'
in your issue of the MArso Tnms of Feb.
4th with head lines, "Bad Roads Near For
eston." That communication is calculated
to mislead the public mind,':(that is the
head lines), and as it really seems from its
spirit and intention was intended more to
sling mud upon the board of county com
"Sufferer" in presenting the public of
such an important matter which concerns
the public travel, should never screen him
self in ,mibush, for really the causeway re
ported was just in the condition set forth by
him. I am ready to admit all that he says
of Mt. Hope Swamp. I never saw the place
but once. Then I was there to devise some
plan to work it. This is one of those un
fortunate piece of roads that require hauling:
if worked at all it has to be done by wagons.
This is my first year in that locafity. But
who is to blame for this condition of things ?
Was it Mr. Horton, who had charge last
year? No, for he doubtless labored under
the very same disadvantage with which I
now have to contend. He made us a good
commissioner. Then who is at fault? Let
us see. Has "Suffvrer" joined his neigh
bors, iike a good citizen, to put this cause
way in proper traveling order? Has he
been as ready to work and furnish his teams
as he has been to jump into the newspaper
and borrow conclusions?
I have always thought and still think it
shows bad faith upon the part of any man
to condemn a public officer for what "Suf
ferer" or any other good citizen liable to
road duty ought to have done and helped
to do themselves. Has "Sufferer" been as
willing to show his public spirit in helping
his overseer in fixing this part of the road
by hauling dirt, as he has shown to the peo
ple by going into the newspapers?
I find all the roads in Brewington town
ship in good condition except this cause
way. I was there ten days ago. It was my
first trip. I appointed an overseer with in
structions to put the causeway in condition
at once. If it has not been done, the fault
does not lie with the county commissioners.
The trouble must be with those who have
the work to do. I will say this much, that
all the committees sent out by the grand
jury never can make men work the roads,
nor help the causeway one iota. I awfully
fear "Sufferer" belongs to this class who
never are wiliing to do road duty. Others
are led to follow his example. This must
be the logical conclusion for many com
plain just as he does, who never do one
single thing for the public roads.

The Labor Question in Clarendon.
Wrtsoss, S. C., Feb. 11.-After a long
gloomy, cloudy, and wet spell of weather,
looks like we may have some nice one now
to the great joy of the farmiers. The farm
ers in this section are behind with thei:
work because of the bad weather we've. beez
having. Then another cause of the backt
wardness is, a great many have not beer
able to get hands. This seems to be a gen
eral complaint this year, more so than eve:
Truly the labor problem is getting cac
year to be a vexed and momentous one
Its proportions are almost equal to th
great race question. Indeed, in our judg
ment they seem to be merging into one an<
the same thing. We ought not and canno
find it in our hearts to grudge even thi
poor negro of that which we are all stain,
so hard to get, of that which everybody ad
vises everybody else to lay hold on, of tha
which nobody can take from us-an educa
tion. But, it seems to work in almost di
rect conflict to the interest of the white man
the farmer more especially. Give the negr<
an education, and he is a negro no more
He loses his negro qualities at once; an'
wvhile it doesn't change his color much, h
feels himself equal to any man, the wbit
man especially. And just here the troubl
comes in with the farmer, As soon as th
negro gets a little knowledge stuck into hi
head he becomes a "gentleman of color,
negro no longer, and of course doesn't wan
to be "bossed" but wants to be a "boss" him
self. He goes to some merchant, gives
lien, buys a mule, a Texas pony, or mori
generally an ox, rents a piece of ground
''sets up" for himself, and, then, oh then
The English language doesn't possess
word big enough to "express him."
This is the identical case this year. Tb
"gentleman of eclor" seems bent and deter
mined not to work for a white man, if h
can possibly help it, and by jndicious qne
tioning, it can be very easily learned tha
this is a very general understanding amon:
them this year.
A good Inany farmers still haven't sufi
cient hands and it seems doubtful abor
getting them, unless they rent. In ou
opinion the lien law has much to do witl
this labor question. But for fear of th
waste basket, we forbear.
Next Friday night, being the second Fri
day night, is the time for the regular meet
ing of the U. H. C. at Wilsonis. A larg
crowd and a nice program is expected. Al

We are turning prices upside down, and
the difference between our upset prices and
other prices is
The Difference Between 6 and 9,
The difference between 6 and 9 is 3, and
this shows the important fact that the
Aukoi Uioro's Prics are One-third iLos
than those of any other house in Sumter.
These are facts, solid and stubborn. They are
not to be got away with by any cheap de
vice of bluff or bravado. We place our
goods on the market fur ouality, not quan
tity, against those of competing firms, and
MEET OUR PRICES!
That's a sort of meeting that nobody's
heard of so far, and nobody will hear of it.
We have facilities for buying that makes us,

But all of this is talk. What is there in
it ? Be the judge yourself. Come and see
how much you can save by buying of us.

proper things now. In Muslin Underwear
we have a small select stock at correct prices.
