BARGAIN DAYS 18
With us are 313 days out of each C(
year; in other words, every day in
the year, less 52, which are Sundays. n]
We have never been an advocate c'f hl
special salesday; as can be noticed in b
a good many advertisements, people t
advertise something below cost, and
when you go to purchase. it is either
"ve are just out" or you can bet 0
your last cent the difference will be ti
made up on the next thing you buy W
or before you leave the store. 0
We have but one price to everybody and
that the lovest. If we have anything spec
ial ?or our customers we let them know
thron2h the papers or some other medium, w
and they are quickly gobbled up. We be- Ji
lieve in saving -the customer every cent
available-that is the reason of onr odd
cent prices. If we can sell matches at 4c doz
we do it; we could get 5c just as easy. But aA
that isnt the point-our profit ends in 4e c
and we sell them for 4c. Every price in the
store is characterized by this cent-savingc
system. We would have it plainly under- 0
stood that we are not selling at cost. Watch b
the man closely who is selling you some- n
thing at cost. We do business opposite Bank S(
of Sumter, next door to DeLorme's drug
store, Sumter, S. C.

OUR SCHOOL ON A VOLCANO. V
Is there not some way by which
we can appeal to the hearts of our
monied citizens and beg themi to fly
to the rescue of the Institute build- is
ing. In another column will be seen
in the list of sheriff's sales the Ma
inig Collegiate Institute..,ndig. u
Itis to be sold for a d tr~o finish Ii
paying off the o ' cost of con
struction. O - ormation is, this fa
building o'nally cost about $3,500,
an'. comparatively new. The ~
~ebt and cost of suit will amount to ;s
about $11,00. Will our monied pea
ple allow this magnificient property a
to be slaughtered?. The Institute o
building alone cost over three timies b
the debt and must it be published to .
-the world that the people of Manning e
'are so indifferent towards the educa
tion of their children that th.0y will
actually throw away what should be
their pride and future hope. Just ~
thinik of the shame which is bound to
*fall upon this town if this propertyn
- is sold by the sheriff. It will be a
blow that in after years when our
children learn the cause they will
make us blush with'shame. On every ~
hand wehear people decry higher n
education, and complain about be
-ing taxed for the maintenance of ed
- ucational institutions; these people
say, let every parent educate his own.
The indifference displayed by the i
people of this town would prove,
that to leave it to parents to educate
*their own, the time would soon ar
rive when there would be an educa
tional famine in our midst, and in
stead of contributing to enlightening
the heathen in the wilds of unciviliz
ed countries, missionsaries from
China, Africa and elsewhere would
be needed here. No, do not leave
the education of the children-th-e C
hope of the country's future to the t
selfish whims of the people,but let ourc
law-makers make stricter laws and 0
levy 'a sufficient tax to educate our
young. People of Manning, devise
some plan by which this debt on the
- school house can be paid and save tI
yourselves from the disgrace which
will surely follow the sale of that
property. Business men, if you value
your business interests, you cannot
afford to stand by and allow this
property to go into private hands, for
what is a town without good school
facilities. If it is, our purpose to im
prove and prosper, failure is
written across our path at the very g.
threshold if the institution from
'which wve should prepare those to
follow us, issacrificed-yea, trampled,
and spat upon through indifference V
and a selfish spirit to live for our- V
selves only. After years of hard R
struggling the people went to work Ii
and by strenuous efforts, bought one
of the prettiest sites in the town; they
erected an edifice to educate their g,
children which is an ornament to the G
town and a monument to the peo
ples good judgment, and after pa-y g,
ing two-thirds of the cost to make
the property their own, they lose
that spirit which prompted them to
buy and build, and are now about
to let the whole thing fall into pri- ~
vate hands to keep from paying the bl
one-third balance due. From a d<
business stand point, if this property di
is thus sacrificed, we write ourselves
iown as unworthy to be entrusted
with a business enterprise; and from b<
a standpoint of duty, we show to the at
world uor sense of appreciation is ~
exceedingly lacking. r
Children, a crisis is awaiting you; a f
sharpened sword is hanging by a
slender thread over your future pros- fr
pects, and it is all because your fath
ers do not want to spiend a little ai
more money to save what they have
already spent. Awake to~ the im
pending danger and use your in
Iluence to arrest this calamity and
theating of your fnture hnns.
or some great effort is to be made,
women of our country never fail
respond to a call to duty, and we
I that the danger threatening the
ure of this town by the sale of the
stitute property is sufficient for
to appeal to the women. Let them
