A party of gentlemen from Manning
went to Brewington yesterday on a fishing
expedition, and one of them, Mr. E. L.
Wilkins. got capsized out of a battean and
was ducked. He says that he killed thirty
seven snakes even if he did get ducked.
and, being a truthful man, no one should
doubt him, but whether he did or not is
nobody's business. The editor of the
Times is not a member of a church and
was ducked at the same place the Friday
before, but the ducking did not have the
effect of making him see snakes as it did

the church. He also says that his pastor,
Rev. J. 0. Gough, was with the crowd and,
while the parson did not get ducked, he

you had had your good wives along, they
would have exerted their temperance influ

committed to jail in Sumter last Fri

"squatted' in Salem to hide from the
law. After the arrest he expressed his
willingness to accompany Mr. Emanuel to
North Carolina without going through the
formality of waiting for a warrant. Mr.
Emanuel telegraphed that he had the pris
oner and carried him up to Sumter. Later
a telegram came to Mr. Emanuel that he
did not have the right man although the
prisoner admitted that he was the individ

patch the prisoner was released.

As we announced last week on going to
press, the Court was hearing the case
against Powell Dyson, white, and Gus
Deas and Bill Dickson, colored, charged
with breaking into and robbing Thomas
& Bradham's stables of a large quantity of
corn and pease.
The case created considerable interest,
and it took a whole day to get in the evi
dence and arguments.
The jury failed to agree after being out
all night, and a mistrial was ordered. We
learned that the trouble was with agreeing~
as to the white prisoner. Ten of the jury
were in favor of convicting him as well
the two negroes, and two were for his ac
quittal, but were willing to convict the
negroes. It is also said that one of the
two who favored an acquittal changed to
conviction some time during the night.
This was the last case. Dyson is out on
bail, while the negroes are in jail.
On Thursday the time of the Court was
taken up with matters on the civil side,
which needed no jury.
A BIRTHDAY FETE.
An entertainment new and novel will be
given at the residence of Col. B. P. Barron,
on Wednesday evening. June 19th, under
the auspices of the Ladies' Missionary So
ciety of the Manning Presbyterian Church,
and a similar one will be given the next
day at the church grove for the children.
'The entertainment is called a "Birthday
Fete," and works like a charm in carrying
out the purposes of the society. Each
guet is provided with a bag or envelope,
and he or she is expected to place in the
receptacle an amount of cents equal to the
number of years of age, or more if you like;
this is the admission fee charged. I'here
will be good music, recitations, an d refresh
ments without extra charge. Everybody
ought to go. and we believe they will, for
the object is a worthy and benevolent one.
There will be no cheating on the age busi
ness, because secret watchers will see that
no lady of "thirty" will work the "sixteen"
racket on the rest and no mean bachelor
works off pants buttons for coppers.
A GOOD APPETITE
Always acc .mpanies good health, and an
absence of appetite is an indication of
something wrong. The loss of a rational
desire for food is soon followedl by lack of
strength, for when the supply. of fuel is cuit
of the fire burns low. The sytem gets
into a low state and is hable to severe at
tacks of disease. T1he universal testimaonvy
given by those who have used Hlool's
Sarsaparilla as to its great merits in res
storing and sharpening the appetite. in
promoting healthy action of the digestive
organs and, as a puritier of the blood, con
stitutes the strongest recommendation that
can be urged for any medicine. Those
who have never used Hood's Sarsp~arilla
should surely do so this season.
WHAT HEARTLESS CREATURES
Whn the news reached Manning of the
catastrophe that befell the editor of the
Manning Times at Brewington, a gather
ing of balloon-sleeved and banged-up
revenge see'kers took place in that famous
quarter known as "'Squall Hill." There
they ;:ave vent to their pent-up malie
with 'It's good for him," and "Why did
they not drown the scamp while they had
a chance," and "Jh ! if we had just been
there the good-for-nothing news-tattler
would never have gotten back to twit us
with his mischievous pen.
After giving vent to these expressions
and more, they set about to declare the fol
"Whereas, The residents of "Squall
Hill" have heard with unfeigned pleas

for the way he has deviled and harassed us,

A NEGRO BRIBED.
A Conspiracy to Drown the Editor of
the Times-A Judge and Solici
tor In It-Evidence Against
the Judge to Convict.
A party of gentlemen, consisting of
Judge Ernest Gary, Col. B. P. Barron,
Hon. J. F. Rhame, Solicitor J. S. Wilson.
Mr. Louis Levi and the editor of THE
TDIES, equipped with three servants and
aplenty of wet and dry rations, went to
Brewington Lake last Friday. The object
of the trip was to give Judge Gary an op
portunity of seeing "The Accursed Fount,"
which John Witherspoon Ervin wrote of,
and the chance of eating the toothsome
fish from Brewington Lake.
The Judge had read Mr. Ervin's book
and was, therefore, an interested listener
when the spring was reached as Col. Barron
eloquently related the legend connected
with the place.
The scene at the spring was one worth
picturing. There, in this lonely spot
with none to molest nor make afraid-stood
a circuit judge, a solicitor, two lawyers
(both of whom are ex-members of the
Legislature), a merchant, and a poor, inno
cent, unsophisticated newspaper editor,
While the party was thus grouped near
this historic spot telling one amusing in
cident after another and making the air
ring with laughter, a little further off were
the three servants busily engaged in pre
paring a feast.
Occasionally a man from the neighbor
hood would lass on his way to the lake,
and when his eyes fell upon the crowd and
he recognized them, he would pass on
with merely a nod of the head, as though
he did not care to stop in such company
and we did not blame him either, for such
an aggregation of individuals are not only
seldom seen, but when they are seen to
gether at such an unusual place, it is
enough to strike good, law-abiding citizens
with a holy terror, and cause them to slap
their hands on their pockets and run for
While waiting for the fishermen to bring
the fish from the lake the party indulged
in jokes and cigars; also in the humor of
Solicitor Wilson's mimicry and Pepper,
and alter each man gave in his experience
or related an incident Pepper was used to
give it a good flavor. This went on until
the fish came, which drew all the attention
until they were led away for the slaughter.
It was not long before fires were in full
blast, and the frying of the fish added a
new accompaniment to the music of the
birds flitting about from tree to tree over
the heads of this merry set of pleasure
About this time one of the lawyers called
attention to the fact that the Governor of
North Carolina had sent a message to the
Governor of South Carolina, and when the
message was repeated it was good, and to
keep it and give it tliavor Pepper was again
While standing there enjoying the last
joke and its flavor, "Gentlemen, dinner is
ready !" was the sound that broke upon the
air, and out of the fastnesses of the swamp
several "razor backs" responded with as
much alacrity as did these professional
men whom the servants chose to call
Under the magnificent oaks the table was
spread, and such a feast ! President Cleve
land can have his clam and fish chowders
on the shores of Buzzard's Bay, and the
millionaires of New York can have their
ishiug frolics it their favorite resorts, but
none of them "are in it" in comparison to
the fish served at Brewington.
Some of the party seemed to think this
aflir a kind of a contest with a prize at
tached for the man who ate the most fish,
judging from the number some of the
party made way with. We have always
had a sort of an idea that our appetite was
good, strong and healthy, and accounted
for it by being what is known as a laboring
man, but when we saw such eaters as
Rhame and Wilson, Barren, Levi and the
Judge-men who roll in ease and luxury
in handsomely' fitted up offices-we won
dered if the idea of vigorous physical
exercise to get up an appetite was not a
false one, for we saw it practically demon
strated that those who labor the least eat,
the most. The dinner was fine and iced
nheuser-Busczh was an important factor
tward adding snap to the bountiful re
After dinner cigars were passedI around,
ad the party made themselves as com
ortable as men could after filling them
elves up as this crowd did.
Judge Gary wanted to take a hand at
atching some of the fish, and the party
all but Col. Barron, who remained at the
amp to take a snooze-went to the lake
with His Honor. Very soon a boat was
procured and the Judge and Mack, our
ook, were out on the water.
In order to prevent monotony taking
possession of the Judge we, in all of our
innocence, secured the serviices of Ed
Scott-who turned out to be a devil in
arnate-and in a dugout undertook to try
the fishing business, little dreaming that
conspiracy had been formed by which
we were to be made the victim simply for
aving expressed a wish that the Judge's
boat would be turned over. When we
ame out of the swamp, on the bridge
stood Messrs. Rhame, Wilson and Levi.
The dugout was turned so that we could
not see the anties of those on the bridge,
but we are satisfied that by signs Scott
was bribed to sink our boat because, when
we came in sight of the bridge. Scott be
came vety nervous, not heeding our de
mand that he should sit quiet or the con
ern would turn over, but continuedl rock
ing until the craft filled itself and like
MGinty, the editor of THE Tnas, with all
f his purity and clothes, went down and
had to swim or drown. Of course, our
friends on the bridge wecre sorry ; they
fairly bubbled over with sympathy for us.
Wilson felt so awful sorry that we felt in
clined to take off our pbnt~loons and loan
them to him to push back his tears and
prevent a scene before the Jludge when,
lo and behold! we found the Judge cack
lng with laughter like a lien after laying
n egg, and there was Rhame and Levi
fairly dancing the can-can in their joy.
Well, we went on the lake and we got
ducked ! Ne vertheless, we had lots of fun.
Now, we charge and ask the proper trib
unal to investigate, that the lawyers con
spired with the Judge and prosecuting at
torey: to have this editor drowvned for the
purpse of giving the lawyers a case to de
tend at the next term of court, and they
let the merchant into the conspiracy with
the promise of the sale of a suit of burial
lothes in case our body was foundt.
We base this serious charge upon the
fact that u-e saw with our own eyes Judge
Gary pay~ Ed Scott a quarter, and heard
hii tell Scott that the money was "for
dumping A ppelt into the lake."
'hey dlid not make fish food ot us as we
are here to state, and after wve rgceived our
involuntary baptism and got out on the
bridge, we set out for the camip with this
crowd of fiends chuckling with glee be
hind us. Trhere we found Col. Barron,
much refreshed from his after-dinner nap
and as we approached him-wvith that
kindness of heart for whbich he is noted
he gave us a big draught of chill-driving
liquid and some advice about what we
should do when we got home. This
seemed a signal for the rest of the gang,
and thev' all volunteere~d advice. One said
take a coarse towel anid rub down ;another
wanted us to rub well right away ;still an
other said take another big drink, but 31r.
Rhaue, with bare-faced mischief, advigd
us to p'ut on a dry suit of clothes or we
would take culd.
While this was going on a valuable pin
mae its disappearance from off our vest.
Ihat was the straw which broke the camel's
back. When we found we were the victim
of a trick and got the ducking, it has been
hinted to us that we said a few words that
a preacher wvould hesitate to use before an
orthodox congregation unless a yellow
jacket happened to gets up his breeches leg;
but when our pin was gone we felt huge
lumps going down our throat at the rate of
a dozen a second and caused us to be
speechless. Our horrified countenance bad
its effect on the tender spot of the Judge's
heart, ani he brought the valued article
forth from Col. Barron's pocket. 'rhen
our joy came back, although somewhat
We would advise our friends if ever in a
weak moment they' should give way or be
infuenced to go 'to a lake with a party
composed of judges, solicitors, lawyers,
merchants and niggers, to

But Thn't go near the water."

THE GAY YOUNG MAN.
How His Information About the Hot
Weather Was Received.
The recent spell of hot weather, so un
usual for this time of the % ear, broaght
forth every form of expression known tc
the vernacular of our day. In fact, it ex
hausted our stock of adjectives.
Various kinds of salutations are used by
friends on meeting, and it is bard for us
to refrain from making some assertion in
regard to the weather, such as, Isn't it
hot?" "Isn't it warn, ?" "Did yon ever see
such ?" and so on, ad infinitum.
The best "get-off" comes fr->m A neigh
boring city in regard to the hot weather,
and as we reproduce it for our readers,
will represent it as having taken place in
"Good morning, Mr. Editor."
"Good morning, sir."
"Hot, isn't it?"
"What did you say?" asked ye editor, as
he gave the familiar interrogator a wither
"I say it's hot."
"Didn't quite understand you."
"I said," and the fellow yelled at the top
of his voice : "It's hot--very hot."
"Just step into my office a moment,"
said the heat-exhausted editor, with a calm
and expressive look, backed up with an
ample degree of fun, who addressed the
young man thus :
"You've known me for several years,
"Yes, sir, I believe I have."
"You never doubted my sanity ?"
"Never saw me otherwise than sober?"
"Well, you observe that my collar has

"Then you know it's hot. Everybody
knows it's hot. People are alive. Now.

THE DISCOVERY SAVED HIS LIFE.

WHO'S DAT TALKING?
Suggested on Reading the Recent
Letters of Generals Hampton
"Come, Cuffie !" say designing men,
"Come, help us win the fight ;
Let's down the Reform movement,
Sure then we'll do you right.
"Come over, colored preachers !
Come, bid your flocks confide ;
Let's battle down their strongholds -
With you we'll turn the tide.
"Judge Goff, you know, has proved ym::r
We love you well as he;
For we've repented long ago,
We want you to be free!
'Tis true, that nineteen years ago
We did not treat you right;
But now, with tears in all our eyes,
In you we do delight."
Who's dat talking? Is dat you, Mars
Butler, or Mars Hampton?
"Well, I'll tell you, all you niggers
I'm afraid to risk dese men ;
I fear dat when dey gits our votes
Dey'll ne'er assistance len'.
"I'm fearful when dey gits our votes,
And they are doing well,
They will not care a fig or straw
If poor Cuffie lands in hell !"
Nearly every one needs a good tonic at
this season. Hood's Sarsaparilla is the one
true tonic and blood purifier.

A LIFE POLICY
IN THE UNION
LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY
OF PORTLAND, MAINE,
is the Best Investment a Man Can Make !
The Union Mutual is the only company that issues policies giving the benefit of the
ion-forfeiture law, and specifying in definite terms by its policy contract that there can
be no forfeiture of insurance, by non-payment of premium, after three years' premiums
lave been paid, until the value provid(l for is exhausted In Extended Insurance.
THE UNION MUTUAL
Has been in business over forty years, during which time it has paid to its policy
holders over TwESTY-SLx MILucON DOLLARS.
It pays its losses upon receipt of satisfactory proofs, without delay or discount.
There can be no more certain provision for your family than your policy in the
The Union Mutual Policies
Are the most liberal now offered to the public. They are incontestable after one year
from date of issue and free from limitations as to r.sidence, travel, suicide, or occupa.
tion-military and naval services in times of war excepted. After the payment of three
full years' premiums in cash they are protected by the popular Maine Non-Forfeiture
Law, the provisions of which can apply only to policies written by this company.
THE UNION MUTUAL
Is a purely mutual comp.iny ; its resources belong to the polic--holders and are utilized
in giving them a maximum of :,enefits consistent with absolut ,ecurity, there being no
stockholders to absorb large profits. Each policy is stock in ta:e company. Its officers
and agents are paid their salaries and commissions, and they earn them. These are in
cluded in their current expense s. Every dollar of the profit goes to the policy-holders
THE UNION MUTUAL
Issues a policy which is as safe as Government bonds, and far more profitable.
It is not subject to taxes.
It is not subject to administration.
It is your financial safeguard.
IT KEEPS A MAN'S SAME GOOD even beyond the grve.
It goes where yon want it to go ; is outside of all controversy, will or no will.
It requires none of your time.
It requires none of your attention.
It causes no care or worry.
IT IS ABSOLUTELY YOURS. Eo DOUBT ABOUT THE TITLE.
It is looking out for "number one."
It is "nailing down" something ; "salting away" something for You and Youns be

It is the only property you can buy by simply loaning a per cent of its values yearly
