Mr. L. J. Alston, traveling salesman for
the Winchester Arms Company, who w. in
Manning a few days ago, met with a pain
ful accident in Charleston yester-lay. WY hile
walking across a street his pistol dropped
from his pocket and in his hurry to ret:rn
it to his pocket his hand came in cont tot
with the trigger and the pistol was dis
charged; the ball entered his right forearm,
making a very ugly wound. He is now laid
up at the St. Charles hotel, where he is re
ceiving medical attention.
There was a "sell supper" at Cicero H ir
vin's house, near Silver, last Friday nigt,
and to enliven things the "raz r" was ab in
doned and the pistol was resorted to. W

The authorities should look out and pun
ish the parties in this county who are buy
ing seed cotton without a license. There is
a law requiring a license and some have
complied with i-, but there are many others
who are buying in utter disregard of the
law and they should be handled. We arc
opposed to the seed cotton license law, but
s long as it is on the statute books we want
to see; it enforced, and in order that the
public may know who are lawfully treflic
ing in seed cotton the Clerk of the Court
should be required to publish a list of
those to whom he has issued a license.
A sham battle is to be fought at the State
air and the Manning Guards have been
invited to participate. Boys, here is an
opportunity for a grand day for yon and
you should take advantage of it. The man
agement of the fair association have and
are still spending lots of motley to make
the fair this year a great success. The rail
roads will give cheap rates and already an
unusually large number of attractions have
been booked. We want our soldier boys to
go to Columbia as an organization and we
hope to see the colors of the Manning
Guards in the forefront at the battls. [he
fair begins November 8th.
Chief of Police Boyle of Charleston is
making it hot for the "speak-easy" people,
and knowing him to be a conscientious and
a determined gentleman, we feel satisfied
that his efforts to enforce the law will be
satisfactory proof that the metropolitan po
lice did not do their duty. Major Boyle is
not the man to take an oath and then to
gratify political friends wink at the viola
tion of the law be has sworn to enforce.
He will break up the "tigers" and 'gam
bling hells" and some who were clamoring
for a change, will find they have a greater
change than they want. Charleston is to
be congratulated upon having Major Boyle
at the head of its police department.
An editor's life is not the bed of roses
some imagine, and in this battle with life
he comes across countless obstacles. If he
publishes all that he bears about people it
would be necessary to keep on hand a gat
ling gun and a corps of sharp-shooters;
then, when in the kin.dness of his heart he
leaves off telling the world things they
should perhaps know about some of his
fellow citizens, the act is not appreciated;
and again, should he indulg" in a little
pleasantry, offense is taken, matters not
how trivial the matter or how vague the hu
mor may be. As for the editor of this paper,
he has w'nade up his mind not to allow the
cross-graiedness of any of his subscribers
to worry him, but to continue paddling
along in his own peculiar way, ard should
he unfortunately offend, he is willing to
make the proper amends, but if that is not
satisfactory to the offended, the only way
open, is to write a receipt for subscription
due and strike off the name of the sensitive
A Card of Tha~nks.
The good people of Manning. S. C., will
please accept nmany thanks for the kind
favors and attentions to my brother and
myself during his sickness.

Henry Tindal Convicted In Sumter.
The trial of Henry C. Tindal, ex-post
master at Packsville and ex-convict, for
attempting to enter a house for the pur
pose of committing rape. was concluded
last Wednesday in Sumter. Tindal was
found guilty, with recommendation to
merc. Jud.:e Witherspoon said if Tindal
was adjadged guilty of the crime with which
he was charged he could not see where the
recommendation for mercy came in, and
but for the recommenciaion he would im
pose the full penalty ot the law, but inas
much as the recommendation had been
made he would impose a sentence that Tin
dat would not forget and at the same time
would serve as a warning to others. Judge
Witherspoon then sentenced Tindal to five
yors in the penitentiary at hard labor.
Tindal threw up both bands and exclaimed:
"My God, is there no mercy for a widow's
While Tindal was in jail awaiting trans
portaton to the penitentiary to serve his
sentence, he tried to suicide by taking mor

How a Burglar was Captured.
Sometime since, as appeared in the col
umns of this paper, a negro was arrested in
Mr. D. W. Alderman's store, at New Zion,
in the Salem section, having in his posses
sion a double barrel shotgun that he was
offering for sale at four dollars. The low
price at which he offered to sell attracted
he attention and suspicion of Mr. Shaw,
the gntleman in charge of the business
at that place. Mr. Shaw telephoned the
irumstances to Mr. Alderman at Alcolu
and Mr. Alderman telephoned the Man
ing Hardware Co. for a discription of the
ne stolen Iromi them on the night of Ang
6th. The description given by the Man
ig Hardlware Co. of one of their gun'.
crresponin. exactly with the gun in
pssessioin of the negro, his arrest was
ordered andl was effected through the
piopt a tion of Mr. Shaw and Mr. Harr
The prisoner was brought to Manning by
Deputy Sheriff Gamble and on the day lie
was brought up before Mgistrate D.eksan
for a hearing Mr. J. B. Spring, a gentleiuan
fo.' Lake City, appeared orn the sc in' arnd
caimed the gun as his property and~ th-st
the p':isone-r had broken into his boune
ne~r Lake City and had stolen the gun, to
gether with other articles, some of which
were found in his possession. therefrom.
This complicated the case and the prison
er was remandedi to jail until Mr. Spring
could secure the proper warrant trom Maig
itrate McCutcheon, of Like City. This he
(lid in due tinie and the p~raoner we5
trned crer to the sheriff of W:liam.ba:-g
county and on a he'aring being had it was
poven that the gun was the property of
Mr. J. B. Spring and that the prisoner was
guilty of housebreaking and burglary.
Vhs, through the efforts of the gentle
men named and the communiention of Mr.
Alderman's telephone line we see a rasc'al
brought to justice. The Manning Har 1
ware Co. are still minus of their guns and
bold and desperate burglar still at large.

I have the largest line of Shoes that I have ever had, both ladies'
and gentlemen's. It is useless for me to say anything about
this ware; everybody knows that I keep the best shoes in
town. If I sell you a pair of shoes and tell you they are
good and they prove not to be so, bring them back and I
will make it good.

- Well, I cannot leave the ladies out; I must tell them something -
I have the prettiest line of Dress Goods that you have ever
seen on this market. Come in and get my prices; you will
be surprised to see how cheap I am selling them, and re
memher with every Twenty-Five Dollare' worth of goods
von buy you will get a nice piece of TABLE SILVER FREE. -
-Now remember, you don't pay any more for goods than be
fore. if I can't sell you goods as cheap or cheaper than 3
anywhere else why I don't want you to buy them. When
I go to buy my goods I try to buy from the house that will
give the best and cheapest goods.
I have a line of Dress Patterns that I am selling cheap. They
are the prettiest shings I have ever seen in the way of Dress a
Goods. I bought my fine goods in patterns so that no two 9
can get dresses alike, for I know that a lady does not like
any one else to have a dress like hers.
I have a large line of Corsets. I keep the Thompson Glove Fit
ting, the R. & G. and the Dr. Warner's-the three most pop
ular corsets used.
I have not mentioned half of the goods I keep, as time will not
allow, me to do so, but remember I keep everything found
in a General Merchandise store; so when you come to town
don't fail to call on me and get my prices, for it will help
you to buy your goods right, even if you don't buy from
me. It is no trouble for us to show goods, but a pleasure, -
as they are so good and cheap.
