Our readers must accept an apology from
us this week for the lack of news. Com
munications came in so thick and fast that
we were forced to leave some of them over

regret, because it is in reference to a scand
alous rumor that has been industriously
circulated affecting Capt. W. C. Davis. It
will appear next week,proving conclusively
his innocence and we hope when it does
appear that those who have been circulating
the scandal will retrace their steps and
undo the injury.

W. E. JENKINSON AT HOME.
The fun has commenced and you sliould
come to Manning to see it. Our merchants
have not woke up to a realization of the
fact, but the fact is here all the same. W.
E. Jenkinson has gone into his new store
that is chock full of goods in season and all
through his establishment can be seen and
felt the spirit of pluck, push. and persever
ance. He is in business to sell goods and
that is why he advertises, and for the rea
son that he does advertise he is doing an
immense cash business. The merchant of
this day and time who thinks he can sell
gooda for the cash without advertising is
simply deceiving himself. Jenkinson
knows this and he finds that a free use of
prioter's ink brings the people into his
store and with the many inducements in
the shape of first-class goods bought to com
pete for the cash trade he sells the goods
for the money and he feels content to leave
the credit trade with its unsatisfactory
results to the merchants who have not
pbulie spirit enough to advertise their
Jenkinson has not been a merchant long,
but he has taken full advantage of the time
by intelligently conducting his business;
the result is, as everybody knows that he
has taken a leading position as a merchant,
and his advertisements are read, discussed
and scrutinized in every household in the
county. He advertises to sell goods, and
be sells goods, because he lets the people
know that he has goods to sell. Watch
this papar and then compare his sales with
merchants who do not advertise and see
the difference in their stocks of goods and
their cash sales.
WE HAVE REACHED BEYOND
COUNTY LIMITS FOR NEWS.
A Bright, Crispy and Newsy Letter
Kingstree, March 23.-Through
the kindness of a friend, whilom of
Manning but now of Kingstree, we
have had the pleasure of perusing the
columns of your excellent journal for
several issues, and candor compels
us to say we think it one of the fore
most county papers in the State.
Your able and well tempered. edi
torials aire especially commendable,
and they carry with them a force and
weight that is productive of convic
ion. We particularly admire the
broad and liberal scope of your views
on public questions, and your clear,
concise and comprehensive style of
expressing those views. For a live
and all around first-class county
newspaper we heartily commend the
l'imes. We hope to be excused for
this personal mention. We are not
given to flattery, but we believe in

Messrs. Harper and Nelson have
erected five tobacco barns on their
plantation and will cultivate fifteen
ares of the "weed" this season.
Messrs. Graham and Thorne have
also erected four barns and will cul
tivate twelve acres.
The tobacco culture seems to be
gaining the ascendency over that of
otton and it is likely tbat the "fleecy
staple" will lose its dominion ere
long, and be no longer king.
We were glad to note the sugges
tion of the Times to build a tobacco
ware-house in Manning, and we hope
her enterprising citizens will take the
project in hand and carry it out to a
The growth and advancement of
the South since the late war has been
wonderful, and we think the time is
ripe~ for the development of still
greater enterprises. We need just
such live and wide awake men as
Capt. D. W. Alderman, of Alcolu, to
develope the resources of our country.
With the proper exercise of money,
might and main our "beloved South
land" would soon "blossom as the
rose'and would enter upon an era cf
progress and prosperity unparaleled
in the history of any country.
The matter of building a tobacco
warehouse in Kingstree is being ag
itated and we would urge that some
of our public spirited citizens take
hold of the matter and bring it to a
consummation. Such an enterprise
would infuse new life and activity in
business circles and do a great deal
to build up the town. If we would
be successful we must strive to suc
.ceed. It takes pluck, push and per
severence to.make a success of any
pursuit, and he who sits down and
waits for "something to turn up" io
help him on to "fame and fortune"'
will be woefully disappointed and
never accomplish any good. It takes
active aggressive work to make an
honest living in this world, and the
sooner we realize the fact and bet
ter ourselves the better it will be for
all concerned. In this age of ad
vancement and progress it behooves
us to grasp every opportunity that
presents itself and make the most of
it. This is the only way of keeping
up with the procession and we must
keep our place in the onward march.
Kingstree has many advantages and
resources which, if properly utilized,
would place her way along the line of
Messrs. Lesesne & Epps, who came
here trom Manning not long ago to
do a mercantile business, are succeed
ing fairly well. They are courteous
and obliging young gentlemen and
are building up for-themselves a prof

glad to have such young men come
among us and will heartily welcome on
and all who may decide to cast thei
lot with us.

Editor Times:-We left Manning at

hoped to find through tickets and

to Chattanooga, to Nashville, to Mem

which last place we arrived about 12
m. on Thursday, March 19, and where,
only 16 miles from home, we had to
wait until 3:10 p. m., \vhen, taking a
local, we started again, reaching Dain
gerfield about 4:15 p. m., central time,
or 5:15 p. m. eastern or Manning
time. We made the run in 2d. 8h.,
counting in various detentions at dif
ferent connecting points, which de
tentions amounted in all to at least
Our route was quite circuitous as
to geographical lines, but the short
est in time we could find, verifying
the paradoxical old age-"The long
est way around is often the shortest
way home." Distance, now-a-days,
is reckoned in hours rather than in
miles; and it is a curious fact, veri
fied by experience, that the distance
from A to B, places far apart in miles,
is not always the same as the distance
from B to A, when the distance each
way is reckoned in hours: that is, the
time required to traverse the miles
from A to B is not always the same
as the time required to traverse the
miles from B to A.
Our trip was marred by neither ac
cident tor loss of connection, nor was
it marked by any incident of special
note. The weather was not unfavor
able, conductors and other officials
were polite and attentive, and every
thing proceeded harmoniously,though
all the track was not smooth, nor
every coach and waiting-room as tidy
as it might have been. But what's
the use of finding fault? Railroads
and railroad officials are often un
mercifully abused. How could we
get along without them? Although
they are not perfect, they are great
conveniences-indispensable, in fact,
and as nearly perfect no doubt, as
their abusers are.
At Memphis several young "Saw
bones," as Sam Weller calls them,
boarded the train and made our
coach lively, but not in an unpleasant
way. Whilst chatting along the route
a medical incident was related, some
what as follows:
Dr. practiced medicine for
many years with more or less success.
Tiring of dosing men with boluses
he determined to stuff them with sau
sages. Accoi-dingly he retired from
the practice of medicine and opened
a tavern, waiting himself at the table
upon his guests. Full of fun and
quips and quirps, he one evening
excited the ire of a testy stranger at
supper, who, laying aside his knife
and fork, looked angrily across the
table at the Doctor and exclaimed
"I'll have you to know, sir, that I
have killed my man!" "And I'll have
you to know, sir, roared the Doctor
in reply, "that I have killed nmany a
The stranger glared at the Doctor,
who was of massive frame, hesitated,
but finally resumed his knife and
fork, finished his supper, paid the
host the customary half dollar and
departed peaceably. How the Doc
tor had killed his "many a man,"
whether with bolus or sausage or
with some other weapon, he did not
explain, and he waP, no doubt, well
satisfied with the success of his bluffE
