James E. Davis was elected to pre
side over the convention and P W
Webber was elected secretary. Chair
man Davis not feeling well requested
the convention to select some one as
vice-chairr an to relieve him if it be
came necessary. Messrs. J H Tim
mons, E D Hodge and D J Bradham
were placed in nomination and the
vote resulted in the election of Capt.
Bradhlam. The delegates were then
requested to occupy the front seats
and the various delegation be seated
Doctor I 3 Woods suggested that
before delegates are nominated that
some gentleman give his views as to
the financial sentiment of the body
and then he called for Captain Brad
ham, who stated that he did not de
sire to bring the "yard stick" into
play, but he thought that each nom
inee might state his position before
the ballot took place.
Doctor Woods then secured the
floor and after holding it for about
thirty minutes with a talk about mon
ometallism, gold bugs, silver and
other things too weighty for the
writer to comprehend, be took his
seat and the convention proceeded.
The election of a county chairman
was the next in order and this
showed the ear marks of what will
become interesting matter in the fu
ture. For the present let it suffice to
say that the nominees were D. 3.
Bradham and J. H. Timmons. Mr.
J. F. Rhame was also nominated but
he declined: A motion to have the
roll called, and as each member's
name was called to state who he
wanted to be county chairman,.was
defeated, and a written ballot was
entered upon which resulted in the
election of Captain Bradham by a
handsome majority. The convention
decided to follow the custom of mak
ing the county chairman a member
of the State executive committee.
The following members compose
the county executive committee:
Alcolu, E D Hodge; Fork, R L
Logan; Harmony, A H D Chandler;
Midway, S W McIntosh; New Zion,

Tihe delegates to the State conven
tion. are Louis Appelt, J S Cantey,
D J Bradham, P W Webber, A J
Richourg, W C Davis, J W Kenne
dy, J J Mitchum.
Messrs. S W McIntosh and J H
Timmons received the same number
of votes for delegates. They agreed
between themselves to withdraw,and
Mr .1 J Mitchum, being the next
highest, was unanimously elected.
Louis Appelt offered the following
Whereas, the Democracy of Claren
don county, in convention assembled,

that they have watched the course of
our representative, Hon. John L. Mc
Laurin, and it is with pride that we

ublic career, and
Whereas, we will be called upon at
an early date to elect a Representa

branch of Congress, and the record
shows that~the present incumbent has
made an illustrious name for himself
and has proven to the world his sin
cerity and his ability as an advocate
for the masses, and that even his po
litical opponents hold him in the
highest esteem, as is evidenced by
his elevation to a position on the
Ways and Means Committee, a posi
tion made conspicuous by the ab
sence therefrom of a member from
South Carolina heretofore. Be it
Resolved, That we call upon Hon.
John L. McLaurin to stand for re
election as the Representative in
Congress from the Sixth Congression
al District, and we pledge to him our
sincere and hearty support, first, last,
and all the time.
The resolutions were received with
applause and then Captain D J Brad
ham came forward and delivered one
of his best and ringing speeches
seconding them. The convention
theni twithout a dissenting voice
adoted the resolutions.
Wi T Kennedy, of New Town, then
came to the front and in a very touch
ing speech alluded to the leaders of
the Democratic party in this scounty.
He especially alluded to those who
are now, deadand those who are now
living, but must soon pass away in
the natural order of things and then
turning to the presiding officer who
is the retiring chairman his voice be
came husky with emotion when he
and then offered the followjug: "Re

Cinian Davis was visiblyv affected

The county chairmiaii-elect an
nounced that :lhe executive committee
would be called together at some
future time. This was a very har
mouious convention; not the slightest
thing occured to mar the pleasure of
the occasion and everybody as far
we know is pleased at the outcome.
BY REV. J. 0. GOUGH, MANNING, S. C.
RELIGION IN THE HOME.
1. THE INFLUENCE OF HOME.
Last week we noticed in this col
umn the definition of "Home;" now
let us pass on to notice its influence.
We, of course, take it for granted
that the mother and father, or the
husband and wife, constitute "home."
They are the ones to do the influenc
ing. The children that God has
given you are the ones to be influ
The apostle Paul had our influence
in view when he said, "No man sin
neth unto himself." We cannot live
apart from our influence. We are
continually and daily influencing
some one. - Since we are exerting an
influence daily and especially upon
the young, let me say that the influ
ence that mother and father make
upon the child may be called
THE FIRST IMPRESSIONS.
Having grown into consciousness
upon mother's lap; having first
looked into her beaming eyes and
smiling face; having like our dear
Saviour, received our first lesson from
mother; may we not say that moth
er's influence was the first to stamp
its impress upon the soul? There
the child receives the first lesson in
ambition, not that kind of an ambi
tion that would exalt self over the
ruins of others, that would see em
pires crumble and nations ruin, if I
can only be brought into public no
tice, but that ambition which is man
ly and which resolves to be a man,
noble and true.
One has said that "an honest man
is the noblest work of God." Is
there any place on earth where the
boy would so quickly learn the lesson
of honesty as at home dealing with
father and mother ? At home we re-|
ceive very naturally the first impres-i
sions for truthfulness. This being!
true, howv careful ought parents to
be with their children as touching:
the exact truthfulness of each and
every statement. If the father es
teems his word and promise lightly
and fails in the presence of his child.
to be true to his promise, will not the
child learn the same ?
A father in the presence of his lit
tle son on one occasion promised his
uncle that he would meet him at a
certain time and at a certain place.
The hour having arrived, the father
seemed slow to start, when the little
son exclaimed, "Father, did you
promise uncle Tom that you would
meet him ? Don't you reckon he is
disappointed ?" What a lesson that
boy taught his father! And oh,
whbat a lesson that father had already
taught the son !
After you have heard the mother
or father say, "Johnnie, if you do
that again I will whip you." John
nie goes ahead, and before ten min
utes he has done the same thing.
You failed to whip him. In his
young and tender mind he has put
you down as one who will not do
what you say.
I am not positive, but I believe
that parents should be cautious how
they threaten their children, and
when the threat has gone forth then
stand by it and whip. These im
pressions that are formed earliest
in the hearta are either for
GOOD OR EvIL.
When we are brought face to face
with the fact that God has placed in
ouI hands (so to speak) the destiny
of the immortal soul encased in the
body of your precious child, how im
portant is it that we shape that life
as far as possible for good. The in
fluence that a parent exerts upon the
child cannot be neutral; it must be
either good or bad. It begins at our
birth, goes on and on through life,
clings to us in death, and meets us
at the bar of God.
John Randolph said that "he could
never forget the influence of a little
prayer his maother had taught him,
and even in his old age lie repeated it
by his bedside as in the days of
The murderer who, in the hour of'
cool, sober thought, plunges the dag
ger into the heart of his friend, has
stamped an influence upon the heart
of his son that time could never
Let me be not understood to say
that all of the influence that a child
receives comes from parents at home.
No. The influence of a companion
is either good or bad, and helps to
influence and shape the life. I be
lieve if children are away from home,
either at day or night, parents should
know where they are and what kind
of company they are in. Also, thky
receive influence from had books,
obscene pictures, etc. But these I
would not call direct home influence,,
unless you have those things at home
and then it becomes home influence
and your home needs cleansing.
Let us who profess to be Chris
tians, so impress our children at
home that we are living our profes
sion, backed up by our daily reading
of the bible and prayer, hence our
influence becomes that of God to the
3. THE INFLUENCE oif HOME Is SILENT.
Like the calm, deep stream which
moves on in its silence and yet no
power can stay its flow. Its influ
ence is felt all along the banks by the
little flowers that bloom and the
roots of the trees that drink from its
fountain. So the influence of father

and mother in the home is like the
stream, deep and powerful, and its
influence is felt unconsciously and
silently upon the youns; or the other
members of that l:ousebold. The in
fluence of home strikes its roots deep
in the heart and spreads its branches
wide over our whole being.
Napoleon said, "The Spartan moth
er, by the silent influence of her
home, gave character to the Spartan
This influence of home is as lasting
as it is silent. Let us think more about
the religious influence of our home..
I believe that Christ Jesus lbved
home and was happy when in the
home of his friends, Mary and Mar
tha and Lazarus.
YOUR PHYSICAL CONDITION
Needs attention at this time. If you are
tired, weak and nervous, it is clear that
your blood is impure, and without doubt
there has been too much over-work or
strain on brain and body. The course of
treatment for such a condition is plain and
simple. The blood must first be purified
so that the nervons system, and in fact all
the organs will be fed upon pure blood.
Intelligent people without number have
testified that the best blood purifier, nerve
tonic and strength imparting medicine is
Hood's Sarsaparilla. Nervousness, loss of
sleep and general debility all vanish when
Hood's Sarsaparilla is persistently taken;
in a word, health and happiness follow
after taking Hood's Sarsaparilla.
