ITBLISIHES ALL COUNTY AND TOWN
MANNING, S. C.:
WEDNESDAY. AUG. 26, 1896.
WE ARE CONFIDENT.
The busy fail season with all of its
posibilities stands stretched out be
fore us, we are confident that we will
be as able to present as strong a 1ront
as any house in South Carolina. We
do naot say this simply as ain idle
boast, but we say it in all eas..estness
because the years of studdy and ex
perience we have had in dry goods
enables us to kinow a bargain when
we see it, and we do say without any
exageration that we have bargains in
our immense stock of dry goods,
shoes, clothing, hats and millinery
that are not to be found in every
hoase in the county, and all we ask
to prove it is to come and look for
vourselves'and be convinced. Our
line of ladies' fine dress are the finest
assortmrent ever shown in. Manning,
with silks, velvets, gimps and jet
passamentrie for trimming. It may
be well, however, for us to mention
that velvets and jets will be the lead
ing trimming for dresses this fall.
Ladies we specially invite you to
call and look over our beautiful line
of dress goods as we have something
to please all

O0PENING SALE AT THETO
A Busy Day in Manning--People from
All Over the County--0.00 Pounds
Of Tobacco Sold--Manning Step
ping to the Front.
The tobacco warehouse on last
Thursday evening was the most pop
ular place in town and under the
brilliant lighted chandeliers beauti
ful women and handsome men prom
enaded up and down expressing their
admiration and appreciation for the
elegantly appointed iustitution
which is expected to bring gladness
and prosperity into our midst. Early
in the evening wagons began arriv
ing loaded with the golden leaf and
comparitively a new product in this
section; ou these wagons were the
sun-brown honest faces of toilingi
farmers who came here to lend a
helping hand towards inaking. Man
uirg a tobacco market. Some of
these came from distances of fortyr
miles. The stream continued comn
ing all night and at daylight the
yardway was full and many wagons
had to stay in the street.
The scene at the warehouse on
last Friday morning will not be for
gotten soon. Just think of it, nearly
30,000 pounds of tobacco on the floor
at one time and nearly $2000 in cash
paid out to be put in circulation.
Manning has at last awoke from her
lethargy to join the progressive
The procession was formed, and
under the leadership of experienced C
captains the march was begun under I
flattering and auspicious circum
stances. Indeed the day will be re
membered in the future as an occa
sion marking a new era in the histo- 1
of our lovely town. For weeks
Mr. E. L Wilkins and his assistants
have been working hard to get every
thing in shape for the opening tobac- t
Do sale on the 21st. Col. G. E. Webb, o
the Winston warehouseman, had I
been secured to help organize, and a
that gentleman was on hand several
days bfore the opening to lend his
The warehouse, by the way tobaca e
Do men say, is the handsomest in the c
State, was cleaned out, and on
Thursday night was brightly illu
minated and ready for the reception
of the weed. Tobacco began to come o
in Thursday afternoon and by 10 n
o'clock Friday morning the floor was j
Dovered with the golden plant.
The old town turned out in holiday
attire to witness what they had
never seen before-a tobacco sale. A
Promptly at 11 o'clock Col. Webb
mounted a truck and announced to t
the people that the sale was ready to
begin. The Colonel then addressed
himself to the farmers and explained
to them that the Manning market
was ready to pay them the market
prices for their tobacco. He told
them that in. the first place prices I
were not as high as last year and in I
the second place the quality of to- f
bacco was not as good, so they could
not expect last year's prices. Col.
Webb then told the ladies present
that he was not always as ugly as he
was when selling tobacco and then A
the music began. Col. Webb began p
to rattle off bids at a lively rate, in a a
ing song tone that was amusing to b
bhe visitors and that gave animation
to the sale. 0
Bidding was lively and it was soon
3vident that while prices were not b
ip top, they were some better than a
they were at Sumter, Florence, and
other points, so said men who were
present at the opening sales at these t
places. Many farmers were not a
pleased while others were entirely b
satisfied. This we learn was the case c
mnd is generally the case at all open- ~
ing sales. The fact remains, how
aver, that the Manning tobacco mar
tet is toibe a fixed permanent insti- h
;ution, and the management will see ti
;hat the interest of the farmers shallig
e protected. .t
'Mr. E. L. Wilkins, the mianager,.
secretary and treasurer of the Clar- C

leserves special mention in connee
ion with the organization of the

How sand Hils Grow. i
A sand hill is not "made" so much s fl
planted. Wherever a patch of "marrum b2
grass" takes root, there the sand blown i1
from the great bank gathers round it. cl
As the sand spreads, the grass grows tl
through it, until the hard dry blades
form the nucleus of thousands of tons of
"hills." Near flolkham bay there lag'
not 40 years ago a wet "lake" inuideul
the high sand. There the "gunners"
used to hide for curlew, digging holes~ o
and filling them with "mnarrum grass" s
to make them dry and comfortable. fr
This grass took root, the sand gathered j
round, and where the "lake" lay is now
a tumultuous mass of rounded hillooks, j,
rising 20 feet above high water level
built by the "marrum grass" from the i
surplus driftings of the mighty sand.
I am riAdful of tie fact that I
promised those whose eyes might
perchance glance over this coiumrn,

ligious intluence at this place. I al
