The State Democratic Executive

Columbia Jan. 5th. One of the ob

determine what status those white

the regular ticket and voted for Has
kell, the Independent candidate. We
see no use for any such specific action.
As weunderstand it, any white man
may, according to the present consti

ocratic party by pledging himself to
abide the decision of the majority.

Mississippians, thanks to their new con
stitution and the election just held under
it, will have to vote but once between now
and 1895. All of theii- State and county
officers have been chosen to serve for four
years. It remainsato be seen how the new
p lan will work.- If good men have been se
lected to manage their afE irs the condition
to which the people have attained is an
Christmas day is next Friday. We see
the signs of festivities everywhere: pa
rents going from store to store, making
purchases for the little ones to make their
hearts glad; young men making purchases
of presents for their sweet-hearts that some
day they hope to call wife; young ladies
giving orders for handsome milinery, and
other things to make an appearance as at
tractive as possible when the proper time
and person comes.
Our merchants are ever on the alert for
just such occasions, and at this season of
the year their stores are as attractive as hu
man skill and ingenuity can make them.
Then there is another thing, of more bene
fit to our readers than a handsome arrange
ment of goods. It is a grand reduction of
prices. Every merchant that has his busi
ness interest at heart realizes the fact that to
carry over stock is a money-losing business,
and it is far better to reduce the price and
sell than to hold up the price and keep the
goods for moth-food. Therefore, our read
ers will find the merchants that advertise in
the Maiisa- TIMS are made up of that
business composition technically called go
ahead-a-tiveness, and it is this class of men
that hold the commercial interests of the
town together; in other words, they are the
back-bone of the town, and are constantly
looking out for the commercial welfare of
Manning. They start out in the right di
rection to attract people here by reducing
the prices of their goods, and are offering
such tempting inducements for the holidays
that the purchaser almost feels that 'tis
Santa Claus stuffin& his stocking.
We see the crowds of men and women
passing to and from the stores, and feeling
that we have as much right to go and look
as anybody else, as long as we keep our
hands in our pockets, and don't slip out of
the sight of those keen-sighted clerks, we
strike out to feast our eyes, and depend on
charity for a like picnic for our stomach.
The first place we enter is the largest
store in town, and the proprietor. M1. Levi,
the oldest merchant. He was standing on
a raised platform near the central portion
of this establishment, where he superin
tended the entire manaement and at the
same time received the cash and made
change for the large number of purchases
that were going on, and it was not surpris
ing that the people were buying, because in
Mr. Levi's store any.and everything that the.
descendants of Adam and Eve could wish
for can be found in all quantities and varie
ties, but not having any money ourselves,
we could do no more than pay the proprie
tor of this busy establishment our respects,
and in passing out reminded him that those
that have plenty should give to the poor at
this season of the year. We expected him,
of course, to reach down in his well-laden
coffers and draw out a hand-full of the filthy
lucre and bid us take it to make our poor
miserable heart glad, but disppointment is
our lot, and instead of giving as what we
expected, he gave us advice to mind our
own business, and we might have plenty.
We did not take kindly to his suggestion,
so went across the street to Louis Loyn's
two-storybrick establishment, and worked
our way through the crowd. We found the
proprietor and his whole force of clerks
busy as they could be-some in the act of
showing goods, and others wrapping up the
purchases. Everybody connected with the
store was beingin smiles, and at regular
intervals the tinki of the silver and the
rustling of the bills came upon the ear from
the direction of the drawer. Mr. Jake Mo
Leod, the head salesman, even stopped to
shake hands with us, and in his kind con
sideration asked us to make a -archase,
but we understood it; he did not want us to
feel slighted, and then his quick ear caught
the sound ot a silver dollar that some dar
key had just dropped on the counter, and
in less time than it takes to tell it he had
the dollar in his hand, and was wrapping
up some dry goods, thus showingithat in a
busy store like this a fellow on the rounds
for a Christmas present stands a poor show,
because he is always reminded that 'tis bus
iness before pleasure.
We bade the gentlemen in this store
adieu, and sought further to gratify our cu
riosity. We came to 31. Kalisky's store,
where we found this gentleman, like the oth
ers, busy expatiating on the newest arrival
of Christmas goods. He wears the happy
smile of one who is gratified with the
amount of goods that he is selling. A few
steps further brought us in the store of B.
A. Johnson, and here we found him and his
polite clerks serving a number of housewives
who were purchasing the good things of
life for a Christmas dinner.
We next turned our attention to Dinkins
& Co.'s drug store, and there found a mag
nificenet lot of beautiful ornaments in the
shape of vases, toiletnovelties, perfumeries,
&c. They also? have a full supply of every
thing on hand to relieve the, suffermng mor
tals that indiscreetly over-eat themselves
because 'tis Chrs,,mas.
Next door, in one of the handsome brick
iron-front stL :es, occupied by Mr. Jacob
Prodovsky, our attention was attracted by a
very tempting display in the windows of
fruits, nuts, confectionery, and a lot of oth
er nice things. We stopped and gazed with
a hungry look, and wished that we were as
fortunate as the crowd within who were
making extensive purchases.
Horton, Burgess, & Co.'s is the adjoining
store, and for artistic display, and graceful
arrangenment of goods, this store is hard to
beat. Their stock of dress goods is certain
ly beautiful, and their trimming depart
ment is complete; in other words, this firn
have successfully studied the art of catching
the eye of the ladies, and from the number
of fine dresses they are selling, we expect to
see lots of ladies during the holidays in new
dresses. Another attractive feature in this
store is their patent shoe-button fastener.
Every pair of shoes purchased from
them will have the buttons re-fastened with
out extra charge.
At S. A. Rigby's we found Santa Glaus
making it his headquarters, and a long ta
ble, running nearly the full length of the
store, is full of the prettiest kind of toys.
Here is the place to get dolls, horns, wag
ons, marbles, blocks, picture books, vases,
tea sets, and hundreds of other things to
delight the little ones; besides his stock of
general merchandise was never more corn
plete, and with the polite corps of salesmen,
everybody can receive prompt attention,
even during the rush.
A few doors beldw Rigby's Mrs. S. M1.
Clarkson has her store full of the latest nov
elties in the millinery line: beautiful hats
for ladies and children, ribbons and laces
in all qualities and quantities, and a mag
nificent uine of New Year's cards and toys.
Across the street in the Leonard building
W. M. Karesh has all kinds of fruit and
candies, and a full supply of everything in
the clothing anid shoe lines.

etables, and confectionery, and a good sup
