THE MANNING TIMES.
WEDNESDAY, SEP. 30, 1891.
News from Silver.
SILVER, S. C., Sep. 29.-One of the most
nteresting and pleasant occasions I ever
njoyed was the grand military review of
e cavalry which took place at Panola last
riday, the 26th.
I need not tell you that Panola, as usual,
had a grand day; the morning was lovely,
and every thing went merry as a marriage
bell. To compliment each command on
their efficieracy and splendid appearance,
both as to horses and men, would require
much moce space than you perhaps have to
spare. However, it is the ladies that al
ways add charms to every occasion, and
lends enchantment to the view. it is a fact
not to be dispute.d that when the llampton
Light Dragoons and Connor Mounted Rifle
men touch elbows they make their inspec
tions too grand for description. From the
least to the greatest they vie with each other
in making these occasions successini
General Farley was to inspect the troops,
and all eyes eagerly sought to look upon
him, the people patiently awaiting his arri
val, that they might touch the warm hand
of him who, together with Tillman, had led
them to victory. Gen. Farley is a soldier
in every respect. His coining among us in
his official capacity was received with that
attention and courtesy that our people
should have bestowed upon so efficient an
officer. I need not say the General was
well pleased. To the military he spoke in
the mwt complimentary terms. To the la
dies (for the General is a bachelor) his re
marks were of the most touching kind, and
won for him the most pleasant smiles. He
said to the splendidly equipped command
ers: -The ladies have made you j ust what
you are, and nobody but Almighty God
could have made woman as she is, so love
ly and so beautiful."
The music was grand, the dance charmed
very bystander. All classes ot society were
epresented; all shades of the community
ere at the altar; while this was the (ase
otbing happened to mar the peace of a sin
e individual, or even forget to chime in
th the young in merry-mading. Now and
n an old croaker could be heard to raise
voice as to the dance, and in his old age

spent ia younger years, when the gold
pportuniy yivi forever tied, with his

quite enough) it sustained Panola's rep
