Dangerfield, Tex., July 17, 1897.
On account of the Congressional meeting
there has become some confusion about the
date of the Senatorial campaign day. The
day that John L. McLaurin, John L. M.
Ir by, John Gary Evans, John T. Duncan
and S. G. Mayfield are to be here is August
27th. Everybody that can do so should
come and witn ess the battle of the Johns.
Remember that Clarendon loves to honor
John L. McLaurin and we can assure his
friends that his speech on August 27th will
be the finest of the campaign. Come and

"Last summer one of our grand-children

speedy relief." For sale by IR. B. Loryea,
We have been told that if we support a
certain candidate for Congress we will
drive votes away from our friend John L.
McLaurin. Our reply is. the man who is
driven away from McLaurin on account of
our support of anybody, is not a sincere
supporter of M cLiurin, nor never was: we
further say, that if our support of this cat -
didate for Congress drives votes a way irom

driven, because we do not propose to Lc

of the candidates an opportunity to fly

their favorite, knowing full well that the

The Manning Academy will open this
season with Major J. R. McLean associated
with Mrs. E. C. Alsbrook in its manage
ment, and as both of these teachers have a
wide experience, that institation will be
prepared to do good educational work.
Mrs. Alsbrook's reputation as % teacher is
well known in this community and she has
been time and again endorsed with a good
patronage. Major McLean is an instructor
of many years' experience. He has de
voted the best years of his life to teaching
and the Manning Academy is fortunate in
having secured his services.

A Call to Colored Teachers.
The State Superintendent of Education,
Hon. W. D. Mayield, has appointed to be
bolden in this County, at Manning, a
teachers' institute for colored teachers,
wita Prof. J. E. Wallace as conductor, July
26 to 30. This is the first time in the his
tory of the County that the opportunity has
come to the doors of the Clarendon teach
ers and it becomes us to exhibit a deep in
terest in this matter, by the enrollment of
every teacher within the bounds of the
Progressive teachers need learn and must
instruct by progressive methods-methods
best adapted to lead out and build up the
mind of the pupil and develop an effectual
citizenship in this age of practicability.
There is no reason why we should not
so enroll ourselves as to show that we read
ily appreciate the value of such meetings
as being one of the best agencies calculatei
to advance the profession of the teacher.
If we do not show by our presence a
proper conception of the value of an insti
tute in the diffusion of new, and withal,
natural methods of instruction, we shall
fall in the estimation of those who have to
pass upon the competency and fitness of us
Quite an interesting time is expected and
not one of us should stay at home, regard

THE POPULAR DOUGLAS SHOES.
'1here is no shoe made for men's wear
that has attained a greater popularity than
the celebrated W. L. Douglas shoe. The
fact that they combine style and quality at
a low price has given them universal en
dorsement. The manufacture of these
shoes has made it possible for a man in the
most ordinary circumstances to keep him
self provided with footwear of as good
style as the market affords-the extremay
low price at which they are scild placing
them within reach of all.
Thb only cbcap quality in them, how
ever, isthe price'; in all other respects they
gr-.de asi high as any shoe in the market.
Their lastirng qualities have been fully
tested aiu found to be unequalled. They
are nos only of good style when new, but
rot'.n their shape and excellent appearance
until completely worn out-a very rare
quality in even the highest priced shoes.
They are sold in Vanning by E. C. Horton,
who has just received a new invoice of the
