THE BIRTHDAY FETE.
A Grand Entertainment Given at the
Residence of Col. B. P. Barron
for the Benefit of
THE THORNWELL ORPHANAGE
By the Ladies' Missionary Society
The Children's Party at the
THE HANDSOME SUM OF $51.50
Realized from Both Entertainments
-A Large and Appreciative
Attendance at Each.
One of the ml st pleasant entertainm-ients
ever given in Manning was the Birthday
Fete conceived by the lahdies of the Mis
sionarv Society of the Presbyterian Church
here and carried out at the residence of
Col. B. Pressley Barro:i last Wednesday
Th1ese ladies haI contrived the unique
idea of sending out invitations containing
little pink and greon bags. accompanied
with the request that those receiving the
invitations place in the snaill receptacles
one ct nt for every year of their age, and
this wes to constitute the admission fee,
the procveges of the entertainmuent to go to
the Thornwell Orph:;nagi.
When the hour had arrived for tht
gathering of those invited the spacious
parlors ot Col. Barron's beautiful residence
were thrown open. 'The Colonel -with the
pi~tnev mannuers for which he is noted
and his accomplished daughter, Mias
Lucie, whose graceful courteousy and
goodness of Leiart can only be appre
eiated by those who have been the recipi
ents ox her friendly greetings, stood at the
threshold to extet.d a welcome to their
It was not 1.n. before the ltrge parlors,
the ::flw.xvs xand piazz:as were tilled with
ift lax , !iix sonme young and- - somlte
not (jute so ung: and ni4 and yonutis
ranging in as rom sixteet to fifty.
Ilie conamittee in charge of the arrange
ments lad prvided th-at the guests should
he served with refreshments, not only in
the way of ie cream, cake, sherbet, and
the like, brt ta:t they should aho be given
a treat in the .vav of music, recitations and
other literary prodnetions.
Capt.ain W. C. Davis acted as spokesman
in introducing the unibers on the pro
graom1e, a anann-ancd that the first
number would b -a vocal duet by Miss
Maggie Hfuggins aid Mrs. W. C. D.avis.
The luece these ladies hal seketed was
entitled "Wandering in the .tvtime," and
was charmingly rendered.
Then Nliss Sallie Stukes, whose tonch
upon the piario isgraceful and sweet-only
t > be appreciated by those who have heard
her perform -rndered most beautifully a
"H1unting Song" from Mendelssohn.
The third num:iber was a rtcitation, '"The
0:d Actor's 6tory," by Miss Mary Anna
Davis. This young lad-y, in addition to
her maltny naturai charms, Las ainsterei
the art of elocutior, and to say that she
recited magnificently weil wonid only ex
press in part the credit that she did her
s-if in this, ot)ca-ion.
Th6- next was an instrumental solo, en
tit:ed "h Black Joe," by Miss Maicie
Harvin, who is naturally a musician and
who dii herself due credit.
Mr. Warren Dckson then played a waltz
npon the violin, with piano accompani
ments by Miss Ria Scott, which was en
joyed by the audience.
"Cmitew SL.h Not RN-ng To-Night" was
recited by Miss Julia Mood. Those who
had the pleasure of hearing Miss Julia
recite during the recent closing exercises
of the Collegiate Institute can well imnagine
the manner in which she charmed her
audience on this anspicious occasion.
An instrumental solo, "Ripples of the
Alabama," was rendered by Miss Hattie
Harvin-who has not even yet attained the
acme of her miusical ambitions-in a man
ner wvords cannot express, and those wvho
failed to be present missed a rare mutical
The eighth number on the programme
was a recitation, "Poor-House Nan," (by re
quest) by Miss Nonie Harvin. Miss Nonie's
power to capture her (male) hearers with
her accomplishments in elocution are well
known, and on this occasion did not tail
to totme up to her usual standard of excel
A vocal quartette, "Music in the Twi
lght," was well rendered by Mrs.
W. C. Davis and Miss Janie Ingram and
Messrs. F. 0. Richardson and J. IL.
This ended the literary part of the even
ing's programmer, but by special request
Mss Huggins and Mrs. Daivis again sang
"Wandering in the Maytime'
WIhile these exercises were being con
ducted in one of the large and handsomely
decorated parlors, those wvho wecre unable
to gain admittance thereto enjo'yedl them
selves in the other Parlor and on the large
and spacious liazzaiS where cake, ice cream,
sherbet (and courting) were served in
abundauce on numnerous small tables and
in the promenades
These merry and innocent festivities,
sanctioned by the presence of Rev. James
McDowell and other church offcials, con
tinued until near the hour xf midnight,
when everybody was loathe to leave,
having received such cordial and welcome
tretment at the h'xnds ot genial Colonel
Baron and his cot'rt-eous famxily'.
On Thursday afternoon the children's
party wvas given at the Presbyterian Church
grove under the auspices of the society,
which was greatly enjoyed by all.
The net proceeds of' both entertainn:ents
-for the benent of the T'r nv~ mell orphbans
-reaebed the handsome sum of $51 50.
Those who had the lieaisur: cif attending
will never forget the o -casion, and only
ope that the time may not he fir distant
when the lad.iexs of the Missionary Society
will give the public another entertain
nent of a .simihir character.

REVIVAL OF BUSINESS.
It Munt Ile So, as That's What They All
Say of It. Especially for the South.
Nrw Yomii, June 2.-Bradstreets to
Dominating business cond itions of the week
are continued by a large demannd and further
lincreases in prices of iron and steel. which
have surprised even the trade. The jump ir
rail prices and scarcity of the h;.her valua
tions for nails have tended to produce tempor
With the further advances in prices of iron
and steel should be coupled the gain of Ic. per
pound for wool. which apparently began its
journey to higher level about a fortnight ago.
Better quotations have also been made for
cheaper grade woolen goods. 2% cents per yard
for prints. bessemer pig. billets. wheat, pork,
lard. hogs. shoes and copper, --'- declines in
prices are recorded for flour corn, oats, coffee.
cotton. naval stores and cattle. Sugar, coal
and lumber are pract:cally unchanged.
Business failures in the United States for
the last six months as reported to Bradstreets,
show a maked falling off In the second quarter
of the past six months as was to be expected,
but not such a decline relatively as in the sec
ond qearter of 1804 which resulted in a total for
six months of 6,594, or one per cent more than
last year. But the total liabilities have shrunk
more than K.C00.000 from last year.
This shows of a general revival of business
at the south but the merchants of most of the
leading cities in that region report that de
mand continues very moderate and collections
are slow. Cotton and fruit crops in the South
Atlantic states promise well and the business
outlook is reported encouraging. Incessant
rains in Texas bave hurt the crops.
R. G. Dun & Co., add:
The volume o f business represented by ex
changes through the principal clearing houses
is for the past week 35.8 per cent larger than
last year, a really surprising gain and only .7
of I per cent less tnan in 192. while the aver
age for the month is 28.8 per cent larger than
last year and 7.1 per cent less than in 1892. The
return Is highly encouraging. In spite of the

iron and steel is gaining momentum
every week, and while there is no con
cealment of the fear that things may
be moving too rapidly for the health
of the trade, everybody seems to be
seriously trying to hold the market
down. With their product engaged
from sixty days to six months ahead,
and inquiries and orders steadily grow

swinging along toward a condition
that now lacks only a few elements of
