We have stricken from our lists of sub.
scribers, a great many names, and each one
of these cwe us money. We hated to lose
these nacnes and are pained to realize that
in a large measure we will lose what they
honestly owe us. Some men take advaut
ageof a newspaper by begging for indulg
ence and when it is granted they do not
pay, and if the editor finally cuts them of
they have beat that much and. of course,
are to that extent in pocket. We must get
our paper to a cash system and later, alter
giving due notice, there will be no one on
our list who has not paid up.

Manning does not propose to get lost in
the shnule and will take advantage of Judge
Simonton's liquor decision. We are in
formed that a place will soon be opened
here where liquor will be sold in competi
tion with the Dispensary. The liquor ele
ment are in their glory just now: they can
have their dens running in fullblast under
the cover of the United States Court de
cision, but we think, even the most ardent
opponents of the Dispensary will find that
the "original package" concerns after they
have run a while will be nothing more nor
less than the old time barrooms with all of
the old evil attachments. In a town of this
size a man running one of these concerns
can have almost his own way, btcause it is
a rare thing for violations of law to be re
ported and great advantage is usually taken
of such a condition.
THE TRUE REMEDY.
W. M. Repine, editor Tiskilwa, Ill.,
"Chief," says: "We won't keep house with
out Dr. King's New Discovery for Con
sumption, Coughs and Colds. Experi
mented with many others, but never got
the true remedy until we used Dr. King's
New Discovery. No other remedy can
take its place in our home, as in it we have
a certain and sure cure for Coughs, Colds,
Whooping Cough, etc." It is idle to ex
periment with other remedies, even it
they are urged on you as just as good as
Dr. King's New Discovery. They are not
as good, because this remedy has a record
of cures and besides is guaranteed. It
never fails to satisfy. Trial bottles free at

Very heavy rains and wind prevailed
over this section on Friday and MIonday,
causing much damage to crops. In some
places lands are very much injured by
washing. Oats and corn are injured more
than the other crops, tor the rain and wind
beat the crops mentioned to the ground.

The corn crop in this section is generally
good. F .rmers are giving tbis crop more
attention than they did daring the past
year. Tobacco is looking very well, and
bids fair to be a successflii crop this sea
so. Mr. J. Smith plowed up his tobacco,
which was most large enough to lay' by,
and planted the land in cotton last week.
An "Old Settler, in his communication
a fewy weeks ago, say, "Wue have no church

failure." In this the exaggerated to some
extent. The same chuich that has been
standing about twenty years. is here
vet, but wiil soon be taken away to gIve
room for a larger and handsomer building.
Because the flows of two or three wells have
ereased a little, is no reason why they
should be called a failure.
ine Grove is all alive with good cheer.
The farmers here have been worried very
much with tobacco wvorms this year. It
seemis tha"t such a crop has never been
kown in South Carolina, although crops
eenrly are very good.

Editor Iasso ThtnErs: c
"I. T. U." is out again in 01 sde ort reply
to my last and says ie closes, as he has no
desire for a newspaper controversy, and I
will bere say that I have none. But as be
was the aggressor I tet bound to defend
mlyself to the be"st of my ability, but from
his standpoint is of small f trce.
.\I first article was not one to call for a
reply, as it was merely answering questions
according to ty way of seeing things, and
his reply led me to the conclusion that he
belonged to that numerous class who go
through either tbe State or denominational
colleges, and get diplomas which disquali
fy them for agricultural or mechanical pur
suits. The first aim isa profession: failing
there, polit:cs is their next aim, and if that
should be a failure, they take the course a
gentleman did after trying many things.
I met him one day and asked him what
he was doing. He replied he was trying
preaching. I then asked him how it paid
and he replied that it was better than any
thing he had tried. I a gld to know
that my friend, I. T. .," is nort one of
that class and ask his paridon for the ie
sinuation I made.
He savs I want everybody to be farmers.
Far from it. If they were we would have
the samte old times, live in a log cabin,
make our corn and baconu lae nothing
else and know nothing. Outside of our
neighborhood we only want farmers enough
to raise enough for the consumption of theI
country and what is needed for export at
paying prices. Men are born into the
world for different pursuits, and the great
trouble is, we oftena at a pursuit we are
incompetent to fill and a failure is the re
sult. The world is full of men who can
command a company, but -could not handle
a regiment, and so on p to the commander
of an armv. It's so in business. "I. T. U."
is dowonon manufacturers and all large
corporations that employ laborers. If God
had given all men equal intelligence, weat
kind of a country would we have had?
There must be a head and that head is
given only to a few and it is given for the
protection of the many. Allow me to
name a few of those favored ones: Old
Stephen Girard, of Philadelphia, started a
poor boy, died leaving $15,000,000; John
Jacob Astor came over from Europe, em
ployed by a New York house as a hide
resser, .ied worth $12,000,000 or $15.000,
000; Commodore Vanderbilt started life by
hiring himself to row a boat on East river
between New York and Brooklyn, and it is
said he never bought anything unless he

For Men's and Boys' Clothing, Hats
and Furnishing Goods.
In order to make a clean sweep of the remainder
of my Spring and Summer goods, I have decided to
cut the prices and cut deep, all through the line, from
top to bottom. Nearly all of my goods are new and of
the latest styles.
Commencing today I will make
the following reductidns:
On all Mens and Boys' Clothing,
25 per cent. Off.
On all Furnishing Goods,
20 per cent. Off.
On all Straw Hats,
33 1-3 per cent. Off.
These Reductions apply to everything,
nothing excepted, and everybody will be
treated just alike.
When I first started in business I adopted
the rule of marking everything in plain fig
ures with a reasonable profit, and have ad
h~ered to it ever since, so that buyers can see
for themselves, if at all doubtful, that they
are getting the benefit of the liberal reduc
tion. These prices are for cash, but to those
who have accounts with me, payable in the
fall, I will also make a reduction on what
they buy from now on.
The few goods I have left, carried over
from last year, will be sold at a still greater
