THE MANNING TIMES.

S. A. NETTLES. Editor.
Gen. Hampton made a speech in
Augusta last Monday, at the Confed
erate Memorial service, and was the
hero of the day.
Florence is having a hot municipal
election campaign. Some wild talk

few free fights are anticipated before
the election is over.
Gov. Tillman has commuted to
life imprisoument the sentence of
Gib Wilson, colored, who was con
victed at the last term of court in
Sumter, of killing his wife, and who
was sentenced to be hanged May
15th. The 'ury, judge, and solicitor

The Louisiana Lottery company
have wona point in their fight for an ex
tension of their charter another twen
ty-five years. They bribed both houses
of the Louisiana Legislature last year
to vote for their measures, but the
Governor promptly vetoed the bill.
Other complications arose, but the
supreme court has decided that the
question must be submitted to the
people. An exciting and bloody
campaign is anticipated. The lottery
company makes millions, and wil
spend money unlimited to get an ex
tension of their charter.
Beastiful Fruits of a Good Work.
Wasors, April 23.-At a call meet
ing of the Union Histrionic club last
Friday night, it was decided that as
the nights are getting pretty short
and the members pretty badly scat
tered, that the meeting of the club
would be suspended until the second
Friday night in August. By that
time work will not be so tight, and
the club hopes to open with re
doubled force and energy. The club
has on hand something over a hun
dred dollars, and a committee was
appointed and instructed to have the
Methodist church here painted at
once. That is one of the causes for
which the club has been working so
faithfully, and hopes soon to see the
fruits of its labor. An old saying is
"be useful as well as ornamental."
The U. H. C. has been a very useful
instrument in promoting good humor,
sociability, good sound sense, etc.,
and of course is ornamental within
itself, and- hopes soon to ornament
the house of God here with a beauti
ful coat of paint. A committee was
also appointed and empowered to
draup a set of resolutions tendering
to Mrs: S. A. Nelson the most sincere
and hearty thanks- and good will of
the club for the many kindnesses and
for material aid rendered by her to
the club. The club has had all of
its meetings at the residence of Mrs.
Nelson and we are sure that not only
every memb~er of the club but all of
the many visitors who have attended
.from tinie to time feel heartily grate
ful to her for her kindness and genial
hospitality on all occasions. After
attending to other business pertain
ing to the club it adjourned to meet
the 2nd Friday night in July.
The stand of corn is very poor this
year, be it said to the credit or dis
credit of the crows, larks, ground
moles, wet weather, etc. We saw
one darkey who vowed that he had
kicked all the skin off his heels, mak
ing holes to replant; it reminded us
of the old saying "knock a nigger on
the heel if you want to get at his
brain," and it was also another link
in the chain of evidence, supporting
the old saying.
We heard a fellow say the other
day that "every body seemed to be
singing a song to the tune of cotton
planting ;" that's a fact, everybody is
either singing it or done sung.
Tobacco Free-Whiskey the Same.
Deputy Internal Revenue Collector E. H.
Deas, sends us the following :
Enrroz MjssmoG Tnoxs :-I am required
to inform you as you would most likely de
sire to furnish your patrona with the infor
meation, that the special tax now paid by
dealers in manufacturing tobacco and
-ias has been abolished to take effect on
andafter May 1, 1891.
Also, that liquor dealers are hereby no
- tided that taxes on the same for the full
year will hereafter become due the 1st day
of July of each year, instead of the 1st day
of May as heretofore. Persons .liable who
have paid special tax for the period ending
April 30th, 1891, can have their stamps
sixth of their rate for the year. For this
purpose the person liable should make a
return on form 11 to the collector and pro
cure an extension certincate. A similar re
turn should also be made, and a proper
sealtax stamp procured for the year be
~nigJuly 1st, 1891. Persons commene
rng in May or June 1891 must make a re
turn on form 11, and procure a stamp for
the period ending June 30, 1891.
These zeturns must in every case be ren
deredidample time to enable the officer to
receive them, and not later than the last
day of the month in which liability begins.
For failures to make returns as above stated,
a penalty of fity per centum of the amount
of the tax will be assessed. The failure to
rouea special tax stamp also renders the
elnunsliable to criminal prosecution.
Patent medicines differ-One has reason
ableness. another has not. One has repu
tation-another has not. One has confi
dence, born of success-another has only
Dnt take it for granted that all patent
medicines are alike. They are not. Let
the years of uninterrupted success and the
tens of thousands of cured and happy men
and women, place Dr. Pierce's Golden Med
ical Discovery and Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription on the side of the comparison
to which they belong. And there isn't a
State or territory, no-nor hardly a country
in the world, whether its people realize it
or not, but have men and women in them
thatre happier because of their discovery
and their effects.
Think of this in health. Think of it in
sickness. And then think whether you
can afford to make the trial if the makers
can afford to take the risk to give your mon
ey back, as they do, if they do not benefit
or cure you.
Who Will Rock the Cradlei
When women's rigbthave come to stay,
Oh. who will rock the cradle ?
When wives are at the polls all day,
Oh, who will rock the cradle ?
When Doctor Mamma's selling pills,
When Merchant Mamma's making bills,
Of course 'twill cure all woman's ills,
But who will rock the cradle ?
When mamma to the court has hied,
Oh, who will rock the cradle ?
She has a case that must be tried,
But who will rock the cradle ?
When Captain Mamma walks her decks,
When Banker Mamma's cashing checks,
When all our girls have lost their sex,
LAUNCHED INTO ETERNITY.
,irst Legal Execution in Clarendon Since
1865-Edmund Holladay Faces Death
Without a Tremor.
The execution of Edmnnd Holladay, col
>red, convicted at the February tern of
,ourt, for the murder of John W. DuBoe.
,vhite, took place in the jail yard last Fri
the acting sheriff used every precaution
; have the court's decree carried out as pri
rately as possible, and only those that had
special permits were allowed to go into the
ail yard. Among these were Rev. E. H.
Wilson, pastor of the A. M. E. church, Rev.
ohen Whitehead, pastor of the colored
Baptist church, the doctors, representa
:ives of the press, special deputies, and a
rew others, in all about thirty persons.
At about half past ten o'clock the sheriff,
Rev. E. H. Wilson, and the newspaper rep
resentatives went up stairs to the cell where
the prisoner was confined, and in response
to the question if he desired to make a
statement he replied that he had nothing to
sa-, only 'that be did not rest well last night,
nd had not felt like eating any breakfast
this morning.' In reply to other questions,
he stated that his wife had not been to see
him since he was brought back from the
Sumter jail, and that his churc'a member
ship was in the Calvary colored Baptist
church. Rev. Wilson asked how he was
feeling spiritually, to which lie replied that
he felt "strong in the spirit." The minis
ter told him to put himself into the hands
of the Lord, and then knelt and offered up
a very feeling and fervent prayer, during
which the prisoner was composed and
punctuated the minister's sentences with
He was then taken out of the cell by the
deputies, who pinioned his hands behind
his back, and the march to the gallows was
begun. On arriving at the steps he ascend
ed without the slightest falter or emotion,
and having mounted the gallows, turned
towards those in the yard. The sheriff
asked him if he desired to say anything, to
which he said that he would like Mr. Whitc
head to pray and have a hymn sung for
him. Rev Wilson raised the hymn "Jesus,
my all, to heaven is gone," which was join.
ed in by the prisoner who sang in a strong
clear voice. At the conclusion of the hymn
Rev. Whitehead knelt and delivered a
beautiful and touching prayer. When he fin
ished he bade the prisoner farewell and ex
pressed the hope that he would meet him at
the great white throne in the presence of
the Heavenly Father. The sheriff again
asked the doomed man if he wanted to say
anything now as it was his last chance. He
said, "I have writen something, but I will
say to my friends and hearers, that I have
made my peace with the Lord, and taken
up Christ and his foot-steps. I have Heaven
for my home. The Lord giveth and the
Lord taketh. I bid you all adieu." The
rope, which was the same used in the
hanging of the Maxcey murderers in
Sumter, was adjusted, and the black
cap drawn over his face. The sher
iff at once began reading the death
warrant. He finished reading at five min
utes past eleven o'clock, and as he read the
last word on the document he sprung the
trap and Edmund Holladay swung into
eternity, paying the penalty of his crime.
The drop was about three feet and the
neck was broker instanily. There was
scarcely any struggle, a few slight quivers,
and all was over. In nine and a half min
utes the doctors oronounced that death had
taken place, but suggested to the sheriff to
allow the body to remain hanging a little
There was a large crowd of white and
colored persons outside of the yard, and
the sheriff went to the gate, and said that
if any of the relatives of the dead man were
out there they could go in to view the body.
None responded, and then the sheriff ex
tended the invitation to the'crowd. As soon
asghe threw the gate open the crowd made P
tremendous rush for the scene of the hang
ing, and in a very few minutes at least twc
hundred persons congregated around th<
gallows with their curious eyes centered or
the dead man as he swung suspended it
the air. A great many of the negroes seemec
to regard the affair with little solemnity
They laughed, cracked jokes, and did no
act as if they were standing in the presene
of death and viewing that which but a fev
minutes before con~tained what the Creato:
alone could give.
The body was allowed to remain nangini
about thirty minutes, when it was cut dowi
and placed in the coffin.
During the entire preliminaries the pris
oner did not exhibit the least fear or trembl
ling, but displayed a composure that wa
The sheriff made dilligent inquiries as t
whether any of the prisoner's friends ha<
come to take charge of the body, but find~
ingno one would have it, he had the bod;
buried in the Potter's field in this place.
On account of the illness of the sherit
Mr. J. H. Lesesne was the acting sherif!
He deserves credit for the manner he ex<
uted this solemn and responsible mandat
of the court. There was not a hitch c
a blunder in the entire proceedings.
The prisoner had written a letter to hi
relatives and that was what he had referenc
to when he ?aid that he had written some
thing. In the letter he made the reques
that after his execution, that his body b
taken and buried in the cemetery at thi
church of which he was a member.

STRANGE BUT TRUE.
Col. I. W. Avery's Remarkable Statement.
This gentleman was treated fQr years by
eminent specialists, and the Brown-Sequard
remedy was tried. He states he had spent
upwards of seven thousand dollars with the
most eminent physicians, and otherwise,
but without the least benefit. He bade his
old comrades in arms an affectionate fare
well more than a year ago, and yet, here is
what he writes under a fresh date. Could
anything be more wondcrful?
Gr.DTLIME:-I was in a very bad fix. 1
was bedriddc-n. Kidneys disordered, di
gestion torpid, arm helpless with rheutna
tism and blood poison (the effect ofa wound
received during the war) and fnil of that
odious disease catArrh. The doictors said I
would not live and qnit giving mue medicine,
as it did no good. I have since used noth
ing but Germetuer. My kidneys are well,
my digestion good, my palsied arn is ;eil,
mny catarrh removed, and ny general health
is excellent. I. W. AVElY.
Colonel Avery was for several years editor
of the Atlanta Constitution, and his vigor
ous and versatile editorials gave that sheet a
viacity which won for him an enduring
reputation as a first-classs journali-t. For
many years he was Ex-Governor and Sena
tor Colquitt's secretary, later, had charge of
the U. S. treasury department, and is to-day
a proud, living monument to the *irtues of
that great healing and life-giving elixir, Dr.
King's 1toyal Germetuer.
Do not class it with other proprietary
Iremedies. It is so far beyond ali of them in
its beautiful proportions and accurate analy
sis of all that constitutes a real germ destroyer
and a health giving compound, that all other
so-called remedies for the diseases which it
- will cure must take a back seat to give the
- highway to this great and wonderful reme
dy for human health and happiness.
