The town council have been consid
ering the advisability of purchasing a
lot and moving the market house out
of the street. This would be a step
in the right direction, because the
present site of the market house is an
eye-sore, and ought to be removed.
Owing to the decline in the price

fell off considerably the past week.
Some of our farmers are unwilling to
sell at present prices, and are going
to hold. One prominent farmer
stored thirty-four bales in Manning

against fire, to hold for better prices.
What has become of the canning

the project the past summer have not

only to the town, but the whole coun

Last night at ten o'clock fire was
discovered in the post office by Mr.
R. M. Dean. He gave the alarm im
mediately, and in a few minutes a
-crowd gathered and extinguished the
flames. The fire is believed to have
an incendiary origin, as it was in the
mail boxes where there was a number
of newspapers. Considerable dam
age was done to the plastering and
the mail boxes, but no mail was lost,
as the postmaster had already given
the mail to the carrier, and had only
left the office a few minutes before
the fire was discovered.

Last Thursday night the dwelling
house known as the White house, on
Santee, belonging to Mr. 3. Henry
Childers, was destroyed by fire. Mr.
Childers and his wife were in Charles
ton attending the gala week festivi
ties at the time of the fire, and knew
nothing of their misfortune until they
arrived home on Saturday. The col
ored people on the place saved from
the building a small amount of bed
ding that was in a front room, every
thing else in the house was destroy
ed. The house was insured by two
parties. Mr. Childers holding bond
for title had a policy for seven hun
dred and fifty dollars, and Dr. S. C.
C. Richardson, who holds the title to
the property, had a policy for five
hundred dollars. This state of affairs
may possibly complicate matters
when the companies go to settle the
claim. The question of who will be
the proper one to settle with will
have to be decided
