AWAKE TO YOUR INTERESTS.
'We have heard that, in commenting upon
oar editorial of last week with reference to
a';r school, it was sa-d the editor should
.ave started the ball in motion by offering
to give one hundred dollars towards the
II-nd to take up the mortgage. The editor
would contribute one hundred, or even
-ore, were he able to do so, and would feel
at he was doing nothing but a father's
zaty to his children and a citizen's duty
* the coinmunity from which he earns his
.'tily bread. We are not able to contribute
- ue Lundred dollars, but we will be one of
:-^enty to prevent the Institute property
!:roin lalling into private hands. Parents,
e must again appeal to you to consideg
this matter; it is a matter which ppeers
y oukand yours, and we know at if you
ill take lime anid thinj, ai will realize
now unfertunate iti ' should the In
aitute propety et out of your control.
..rl~vite people of this town, with
1B r refinement and education, have
-iore pride than those of the other race.
T2he colored people were unfortunate
,nough to lose their .ehurch edifice by fire,
.:nd through some accident there was no
.nsurance on it; what did they do? They
at once went to work and, with commend
able energy, soon erected another magnifi
eent structure. We mention this, that our
'eople may profit by the asample.
' Manning to-day is on a prosperous road,
oefidence in the future is shown by the
.ay the peo-Ae are improving their homes,
.nd by the step taken by one of her fore.
nnat citizens in investing a large sum of
money in a knitting mill. This institution
ha brought here a nunmber of children,
who, to make good citizene, will have to be
-ducated. Other citizens will take courag~e
.on and invest their mionrey in something
bat will give employment and increase our
:population. The question staring us in
aee now is: Shall we discourage those who
are wiluing to help us build up the town by
stamping ont of existence the very founds
tion that the town's prosperity must depend
upon? No town can prosper where the
:opulation is opposed to maintaining a
school. T1he very mud sill upon which all
:.wns are built is a school. Take away
ur school, and the property here would
secrease in value the first year not less than
tenty-five per cent. Ask yourselves the
uestion, if you would stay here if there
'as noischxool to send your children to.
Merchants, your daily sales depend upon
'ie number of people who come to town to
.nay goods. Don't you know that your let.
rig this school property get away from
..on will have its effect on your business ?
e honestly believe that many a man who
ades in this town now will go elsewhere,
because he will come to the conclusion that
Sset a of merchants who are so wanting in
rublic spirit as to let their school-house be
:ld from under them, to keep from spend.
a ;g a few dollars, are not enterprising
.nough to compete with others, and their
isposition to live for themselves only, and
ae devil take care of the hindmost,
:mounts to a selfish greed which is a
-incoroas sore, and if encouragedl, it will
ermeate the whole county and destroy the
ery gesus from which springs our social
ndt material welfare.
The people of the county are watching
ue result right now, they are waiting to
see if .lannig, the county seat ol the
unty is gorug to 1halt at the forlis of the
raud. If she decides to take the road oti to
r-re'Ss, county piide will bring the aud

that this is thre beginning of a new era for
the agricultural and mechanic'rl society.

The Guards were not less appreciated by
the immense crowd, and they deserved all
the compliments paid them. They showed
up tine, and their marching w:as simply
perfect. Next year the military should
have an encampment at the Fair.
SHALL THE INSTITUTE BE
- SACRIFICED ?
This is a question of vital importaice,
notonly to every citizen of this iown,buta.s
to everyone in the entire com utiiity and
surrounding country. seven years ago the
patriotic citizens of Manning, teelhug tt.e
need of an educational instituiuOU cowpat
ible with their pride, went to work, and
the Manning Collegiate Inst.tute was the
result of their efforts. While they are de
serviug of great praise for what tiey have
accomplished, it must be said that there
was lacKing a small degree o. energy which,
it it had been properly directed at the
proper time, would never have allowed a
debt, comparatively small at first, to accu
mulate into such proportions as the one
which now hangs over the Inbtitute, and
which, it not satisfied in a short time, will
absorb the entire property. The original
debt of $500 has been doubled by interest
and costs, and will, when the sale is con
suimated, amount to about $1,100. Some
thing should be done, and done quickly,
or otherwise the property will pass from
under the control of the citizens who should
rightly own and scontrol it, into the hands
of some private individual, who most prob
ably will convert the building into a resi
dence, and all the people have gained by
their former investment will be lost,
through nothing less than lethargy.
Awake, thoughtful citizens, to the peril
which threatens, not simply a piece of
property, but an institution of learning,
which should be the pride of everyone
here. Perhaps some think everything will
go on all right, and that they will get the
same school advantages in the future as
now. Do not be deceived, so far as the
Institute is cotcerned ; for to have and
enjoy the best school facilities it is neces
sary for the school to be owned and con
trolled by the parties most interested.
Many of my friends have from time to
time earnestly entreated me to buy the
property, and run the school on. I desire
to say to such ones that I highly appreciate
the confidence they have in me, yet I can
not enteitain the idea of the purchase of
the property ; and, besides, if I di:n. I
would be going counter to the dictates of
my concience, for I do not think it a
good policy to allow the property to fall
into the hands of any piivate party what
ever. I have exerted all the influence of
which I am possessed to get the people en
thused enough to take some steps by which
the debt could be paid and tiit property
secured for a lasting possession to the
citizens of the town. Mr. Appelt, in a
strong editorial last week, emphasized the
duties now devolving upon the people, and
it seems to me my words are so weak in
comparison with his that I feel like this
appeal will also go unheeded. The most
plausible plan I have to advocate is for fit
teen or twenty of the leading citizens to
contribute by subscriptioli a sufficient
amount to purchase the property at a reas
onable figure, then allow the property to
go to sale, and then buy it in and reissue
stock to those subscribers. By this plan
the transfer of the property would be legal,
and all the old stock would be cancelled,
and the new company could then own and
operate it as they saw fit. It will be a burn
ing shame to allow that nice piece of prop
ertv to be sacrificed for the la'k of $1,100,
which the citizens of Manning are fully
able to meet, if they will but consider the
question properly. The property has ai
ready been sadvertiseu for sale, a&d what.
ever is done, must be dene within the
next few days, or it way be too late. In
nmy muindj.-is not a question of whether or
DoLytnare able to contribute fifty ($50) or
seventy-ive ($75) to save the Institute, but
whether you can atord to see the property,
which cost thrs~e tiines the indebtedness,
sacrificed, without at least making a noble
effort for its perpetuity as an institution of
learning. 1t you do allow it to go, don't
complain about the la::k of proper school
acilities; and, furthermore, don't have the
brass to make an effort to erect another
school building for several years to come;
or if you do, this lack of public spirit will
tver rise up before you. A word to the wise
.s sufficient. E J. BntowNE.

The people of Sumter and Clarendon have been taught that this
