A Public Installation--An Eloquent Ad.
dress-A Grand Feast.
Last Thursday was a red letter day in
local circles of the Knights of Pythias, and
one that will be long and pleasantly re
membered. At a meeting two weeks be
fore the lodge was reorganized, officers re
elected, and those present pledged their
efforts to again apbuild the order in our
midst. As an evidence of good faith and
to begin with a fraternal and friendly be
ginning, it was decided to have a public
installation, a public address, and an oyster
supper. Messrs. Louis Appelt, S. A. Net
tles, and W. C. Davis were appointed a
committee of arrangements, and they did
their work well. The Baptist church was
obtained for the installation services and
the address. Mrs. Nelson, of the Cen
tral hotel, was intrusted with the supper.
At 7.30 o'clock the lodge met in their
castle hall, and from there proceeded to the
church in a body about forty strong. - Dep
uty Grand Chancellor Jos. Sprott, Jr., was
the installing officer, and the beautiful and
impressive installation ceremonies were
admirably conducted by him. Following
officers were installed:
S. A. Nettles, C. C.
P. B. Mouzon, V. C.
R. R. DaRant, Prelate.
J. H. Rigby, M. of W.
W. C. Davis, K. of R. and S. and M. of
E. C. Horton, M. of E.
Louis Appelt, M. of A.
P, B. Thames, I. G.
0. E. Webber, 0. G.
After the installation was over Chancellor
Commander Nettles made a short speech in
which he urged upon the members to up
hold the trusts reposed in them and to work
together as friends and brothers for the
common good of the order. He then in
troduced Maj. H. F. Wilson, of Sumter,
who for about a half hour entertained the
arge audience in the church with his elo
quent words on Pythianism. He began by
saying an eloquent divine had once said
the order was not properly named, that
instead of Knights of Pythias, it should be
Knights tPity Us, for in acts of friend
hip, charity, and benevolence they were
foremost. He. dwelt specially upon the
benevolent features of the order, how that,
its objects were to benefit women and chil
dren, and to care for a brother in sickness
ind distress, and he spoke of the millions
>f dollars that went to aid those who were
ieserving. His speech was interesting,
Rnd when he closed there was not one in
the audience but wished he had continued.
The lodge then marched back to their
castle hall, and thence to the Central ,hotel,
where an hour was spent in social inter
ourse. At 10 o'clock the banquet began.
Oysters were served in every style and in
lbundance, together with all the good
things that go along with such. No liquors
>f any kind were used, and not a person
present had a drop with him. After a
blessing from Rev. James McDowell the
Knights attacked the supper in good style,
xud for nearly an hour the conflict vaged,
with devastation to the oyster. Cigars
were then passed around, and the toasts
begun. Chancellor Commander Nettles
presided, and offered the following toasts:
Our Honored Guests-Responded to by!
South Carolina-Maj. Abe Levi.
Damon Lodge-Jos.Sprott, Jr.
Our Sister Lodges-Maj. H. F. Wilson.
The Endowment Rank-Capt. *D. J.
The Press-J. Mi. Knight.
The Pulpit-Rev. James McDowell.
The Bar--W. C. Davis.
The Medical Profession-Dr. W. M1.
The Mercantile interests-Moses Levi.
Woman-C. J. Lesesne
The speeches were full of life, some of
ihem being unusually good, and all were
heartily cheered. All agreed it was one .of
the most pleasant and delightful entertain
ments they ever attended. There was not
word in the speeches but breathed a fra
ternal and friendly sentiment, and not a
bitch anywhere marred the occasion. The
Knights that were absent missed a treat,
Damon Lodge is now on its feet again,
ad we hope it will grow stronger than
Der. Let every member attend the next
meeting. It is expected that there will b e
some degrees conferred. K. P.
peech of Mr. Charles J. Lesesne at the
-the Knights of Pythtias Banquet.
We regret not being able to publish the
admirable address, delivered by Hon. H.
Frank Wilson in the Baptist church on the
ccasion of the installation of the officers
of the Kriights of Pythias. The address
was a fine presentation of the objects of the
order, and delivered in a most masterly
manner. We, however, give our readers
the eloquent tribute delivered at .the ban
quet by Mr. Charles J. Lesesne, in re
sponse to- the toast of "Woman."
Chancellor Commander and Brother
Enights:-The committee on arrangements
didn't see lit to consult me as to what toast
I should like to resporid, but seemed to
think that if any subject would inspire me,
it was 'voman. It seems to me that some
gentleman who has enjoyed conjugal bliss
might do better justice to the beautiful sub
ect than .1 can, for having had such luck in
that line as to produce anything else but
bliss, I know nothing about it. But, while
it might sound strange to those of you who
have been taught that the waters of a foun
tain can't flow above its source, I do know,
that woman, the second edition of human
ity and the specially created counterpart of
man, is the greatest of God's creation. And
though Thales ascribed to Diogines Laertius
the giving of thanks to fortune because be
was a manjand not a woman. it was not be
cause of his intention to minify woman in
the narrow confines to which she had been
assigned by man, but because of her cir
cumscribed sphere compared with the lib
erty of of man. During that period of the
world's history the distorted ideas of men
about woman's usefulness in the advance
ment of civilization were akin to the Greek's,
that philosophy demeaned itself by stoops
ing to uses. But woman is no longer a toy.
She is proving herself the equal of man in
man's own work, and in her sphere proper.
she is far his superior. In the language of
a lamented author: "Whether by a 'fortui
tous' concourse of atoms; or by that dispo
sition of unknown causes whicl. we call ac
cident; or by that intelligent, non.human
arrangement of human affairs that seems to
imply an unseen intelligent power which
most men delight to call God," woman to
day stands in the front rank of many of the
avocations of man, and her intellectuality
is reflected in the government of many na
tions of the world's highest civilization.
Much of the cream of our public and pri
vate libraries are the emanations from her
brain. She is found in all climes exerting
her influence and expending her energies
In heathen countries-living sacrifices to
the cause of the civilization and evangeli
zation of the world.
Pure women, possessing all the attributes
of grace and embodying the better im
pulses of the human race, inspires man to
his loftiest aspirations. Were it not for
'the purity and loveliness of woman, man
would not be what he is-with woman goes
sentiment, and the swaying of her wonder
ful influence over man develops all the
better impulses of his nature and lifts him
up toa higher state. If there is one thing
in the world which appeals to all the purer
emotions of emotions of man's soul, if there
is one thing which commands his highest
regard, and which he reveres more than the
bonds of fraternal brotherhood, it is the
name of woman. And
"Oh woman, in our hour of ease,
Uncertain, coy and hard to please.
And variable as the shade
By the light quivering aspire made,
When pain and anguish wring the brow,
A ministering angel, thou."
. A DENON'S WORK.
Manning Again Laid in Ashes.
On the night of the 2d of December, last,
this town was visited by fire, and a large
part of the business portion was destroyed.
At the time, from the apparent circum
stances, that is to say, the early hour of the
evening, and the chances for detection made
us doubt the fire being the work of an incen
diary, although quite a number of citizens
believed it was set for the purpose of rob
bery. The pilfering on that occasion was
fearful, crowds were here for miles around,
and goods were stolen by wagon loads.
Notwithstanding all this we did not be
lieve any one could be so bold and daring
as to enter upon premises to carry out such
a purpose and get away without being de
tected. Subsequent events, however, con
vinces us we were mistaken, and we now
believe that the fire was a systematically
Last Friday night at 5 minutes past 11
o'clock fire was discovered in the rear part
of S. A, Rigby's store. Policeman Huggins,
who was on duty, saw the light and cried
fire, and then ran to ring the alarm bell.
Before he reached the bell the flames weres
towering above the building Not more
than five minutes before Mr. Huggins saw
the fire Mr. Mitch Wells passed the store on
his way home, and he saw nothing unusual
about the premises, and had just gotten
into his bedroom when he heard the alarm.
He rushed out and when he got to the
store, he says the back door was wide open.
The wareroom was then burning at a very
rapid rate as if the wood was saturated
with kerosene. It was at once evident that
no human efforts could save the store. Mr.
J. H. Rigby, followed by his brother, Joe,
rushed into the store, and having in mind
Mr. Levi's sad experience with his safe,
they went to work to get out the books and
other valuables. Before they got through
the fire had gained upon them so rapidly
they were forced to come out, and as they
got out the roof of the office fell in and
came very near catching them. The front
door was opened and the work of saving
stock was commenced. The workers gath
ered up the goods, and put them down on
the sidewalk by the court house square and
in Horton, Burgess & Co.'s lot. Guards to
prevent stealing were placed around the
goods, but some ,ere stolen anyway. The
building was soon enveloped in flames,
nd from it the adjoining stores occupied
by W. E. Brown & Co. as a drug store, and
iss Annie Davidson as a racket store,
aught. All that could be done, was to save
goods. The large two-story carriage shop
n the rear of Rigby's store then took fire,and
From it the fLames shot high into the air,
ighting up the whole town. It was feared
rom this building the residence of Mrs.
allie Wells would be the next to follow,
ad before the fire had gained much head
way in the shop the furniture was taken
'rom the house and carried to a safe dis
ance into-the street. T6 save Mrs. Wells'
ouse it took the hardest kind of work, and
Ihe brave men placed themselves between
lhe two buildings withstanding the ex
reme heat and persistently fought against
.he fire. Several times we thought the men
would be forced to give up and allow the
iery demon to go on in his destructive
narch, but the gallant men stood their
;round and fought bravely on until they
ucceeded in pl-eventing the monster from
aking in his grasp the home of the widow
and orphans. The house was saved, not
without damage, however, and as soon as
t was safe to do so Mrs. Wells had her fur
2iture moved back.
From the heat of the burning buildings
he law office of Rhame & Davis, which was
ome distance from the others, caught, and
,t too was consumed; the contents were
aved. The wind was blowing pretty stiff
n the direction of the Baptist church, and
etween the law office and the church was
, building recently used as the post office;
his building was saved ,by a number of
nen getting some pieces of sheet iron,
which they found in Rigby's lot, and
vlaced them on the roof, and a constant
our of water was kept on them until the
langer was over. Thus the further
pread of the fire was arrested..
As to the origin of the fire there is no
loubt. It was set and we believe robbery
ras the motive- If Mr. Wells a ot mis
aken about the door bei'g open, then the
tore was robbed first r.nd the fire set to ob
iterate traeks. Mr. E~orton Rigby says he
loes not rememberwhether or not he opened
he back door, but thirks he did. When he
ot there the back par:; of the ware room
ras all ablaze.. If the~ fire-was et inside the
hieves made sure of their booty and then
aturated the weue room with oil before ap
>ying the mataih.
This is terrible. Just two months ago
me side of the town was laid in ashes and
ow the other .side isin the same condition.
Are our citizens going to sit quietly down
and make no effort to discover the perpetra
ors of these infamous crimes? The matter
should be searched into if it takes every
ollar from the town treasury and private
subscriptions besides. It should be placed
at once in the hands of competent detec
tives and if possible have it ferreted out.

OFFICE COUNTY AUDITOR,
Manning, S. C., Dec. 13, 1893.
The Auditor's office will be -open
rom the second day of'January, 1894,
o the twentieth day of February,
1894, to receive returns of real and
ersonal property for taxation in
larendon county for the year 1894.
A good way for the taxpayer who
as much property to return, is to
make a memorandum of thennmber
f' horses, cattle, mules, sheep and
oats, hogs, watches, organs and pi
aos, buggies, wagons and carriages,
ogs, merchandise, machinery, mon
eys, notes and accounts, (above ia
ebtedness) furniture, &c., which will
save the taxpayer time, and enable
the assessor to progress in the work:
Taxpayers return what they own
n the first day bf January, 1894.
All property, both real and per
onal, must be returned this year.
Assessors and taxpayers will enter
the first given name of the taxpayer
n full, also make a separate return
for each party for the township-the'
roperty is in, and where the tax
ayer owns realty, to insert the post
ffice as their place of residence, and
hose who only own personal prop
erty, to give the party's name who
wns the land they live on as thiei
residence, which aids thetaxpayer as
well as the county treasurer in mak
ing the collections and preventing
Every male citizen between the
tges of twenty-One and fifty years on
the first day of January, 1894, except
those incapable of earning a support
from being maimed, or from other
auses, shall be deemed taxable polls.
All returns that are made after the
twentieth day of February 'will have
a penalty of 50 per cent. added there
to, unless prevented by sickness or
out of the county during the time of
listing. Not knowing the time of
listing is no excuse.- And all owners
of real estate, might do their tenants,'
who cannot read, or take a news
paper, a great favor by making their
returns or telling them the time of
listing, and that if they fail to make
their returns in time that the valua
tion has to be increased 50 per cent.
unless they have a good excuse.
The assessing and collecting of
taxes is all done now in the same year,
and we have to aggregate the numn - __
ber and value of all the horses, cattle,
mules, &c., as well as the acres of
land, lots and buildings, and their
value, that there is in the county,
and have same on file in the Comp
troller General's office by the thir
tieth day of June each year. And
from that time to the first day of Oc
tober each year the auditor's and
treasurer's duplicate has to be corn- -
pleted and an abstract of the work~
in the Comptroller's oficee by that '- -
time, which will show at a glance
that the auditor has no time to take
in returns or do anything else much,
between the first day of Miarch and
the first day of October each year,
but work on the books and blanks.
Therefore I hope that all taxpayers
will do us the favor of making their
returns in time.
