the counter but a moment, while her atten

In the retirement of Mr. Jacob W. Mc
Leod from the general merchandise busi
ness of this town Manning loses from her
commercial circle a man whose business
was in the zenith of its glory, with every
promise of a continued profitable patron
age, and who by his attention to business
largely aided in giving Manning a rating
which places her among the best towns it
hoath Carolina. One of the main reasons
for this retirement was failing health, due
principally to close confinement and over
work. Mr. McLeod will not leave us, but
will open an office in the rear of Harvin d
Barrn's store, where he will devote his at.
tention to his cotton and other business.
A few days ago Manning was the field
of operations for a slick swindler. who
came to the post office, calied for a letter
addressed "Chicago Portrait Comnpany.
The letter was delivered to him and from
it he took a bill of lading, went to the .le
pot and secured a lot of pictures which the
Chicago Portrait Company haa enlarged for
the people of this town. The scamp hired
a carriage, delivered the pictures collectec
the charges and left for parts unknown.
Nobody dreamed of anything wrozng about
the transaction until last night when the
postmaster received a letter from a .ir. J.

This town was again visited by fire and
where it was least expected did the demon
put in his work of destruction.
Last Thursday morning btwee:: th
hours of 5 and 6 o'clock 1'olicdman llug
gins discovered flames eating th-ir way oat
of the western upper story w:ndow ol iur
yin & Barron's store. Immediately he
sounded the alarm and before an entrance
to the building could be etieted the fire
had gained such headway that it was aa
gerous to life to attempt the work of saving
the goods. Mr. Archie lB.rron, the jan:or
member of the farm, attempted to reach
money till where the night before Le had
left about two hundred dollars in cash, bat
he was driven back by the Intense heat and I
smoke. A second attempt would have ic-n
made, but the falling in of the upper dor
near the place he was seeking to get pre
vented him, and very fortunately, too, be
cause had he reached his money drawer the
probability is that he would have been
caught by the falling timbers and killed.
Very little goods were saved-not as much
as twenty-five dollars wirth.
Policeman Huggins says that some time
during the night or early morning he heard
a noise like the breaking of glass and he
made a careful hunt in the store lots and
about the fronts to ascertain the cause. His
search was fruitless and he came to the e.n
elusion that a piece of glassware had failen
from a shelf. He secreted himself among
some bales of cotton in McLeod's lot and
watched for over an hour. At the same time
Rush Ingram was on the lookout in front.
Hearing nothing more and seeing no signs
of any one moving about, he caine out of hi,
hiding place and took a seat on the door
sill of Harvin & Barron's store, when al: at
once he heard a cracking noise, and look
ing up. discovered the fire
The building and contents were entirely
consumefand the store occupied by .\r. L.
W. Kendall was very badly damaged. The
adjoining wall will have to be taken down
and rebuilt. At one time the whole block
was in great danger of destruction and what
kept the fire from spreading, is due entirely
to a merciful Providence and the herculean
efforts of Mr. John Meier. Mr. J. H. Le

they had on hand over $13,000 worth of
goods, some of which had only arrived in
the store the day before the fire and
was opened up for their -special sale"
which would have taken place had not the
fire prevented it.
Everybody felt sad when they saw this
property being consumed, because the firm
of Haryin & Barron had brought about a
condition in this town which quickened the
mercantile pulse and put ali of our iner
chants on their mettle to not be outstripped
in tae competition for public favor and pat
The blow at first was so severe that it al
most made the members of this firm heart
sick, but with that determined spirit exuib
ited so far in their short career, they ralled
and before the smoke d:ed away from the
burning embers they began negotiating for
the mercantile business of Ur J. W. Mc
The negotiations resulted in a deal, and
they bought out Mr. .tcLeod where, in the
future, they will be found catering to the
publc for confidence and trade, and they
teel that the misfortune which came upon
them will have the effect of making them
redouble their efforts to draw to tie town
of Manning a still larger portion of the al
ready Lcreased trade due to thrift, energy
and up-to-date methods.
The Court of Common Pleas continued
until last Saturday afternoon. The cases

case was started and after hearing some of
the witnesses, by consent, the case was
withdrawn to come up at the next term of
A. A. Tindil, plaintiff, against Gus Dixon,
defendant, resulted in a verdict for the
plaintiff. In this ease WV. C. Duaant, E-q.,
made his maiden speech and it was an ef
fort worthy of an older member of the bar.
M.r. Du~ant made a capital argument and
his review of the testimony shows him to be
a'young man with a fine future in his pro
fession before him.
'The last case tried was Louis Appelt,
plaintiff, against John Thames, defendant,
for the recoovery of that store and lot situ
ated alongside of the bank, and resulted in
a verdict for the plaintiff.
The raembers of the Bar took out a num
ber of deczetal orders and the court ad
journed sine die.
A Deserved Credit.
A few months ago when fire destroyed
the valuable property of Messrs. Thomas
& Bradham, the fire was prevented, in a
large measure, from extending to other
property near by, by the heroic efforts of
Mr. John Meier and some of his employees.
Fire has again caused a loss of property in
our midst and again Mr. Meier and his
men were on hand and did good service,
which efforts probably helped to save ad
joining property. 1 think it only fair that
the community take proper notice of their
efforts to save property belonging to others
and thus show honor to whom honor is
due. AN OnsEnvER.

Does not expect to do business with the people of Clarendon for a few days or weeks or
months, but for years, and we hope by honest dealing to gain the confidence of our pat
rn.There is nothing more distasteful to us than cheap John methods of doing busi
ness, and we don't propose to adopt suchi tactics to attract trade.
we keep some shoddy stock on hand because there is a demand for it, but our
patrons shall be fully advised as to the merit of the goods they buy from us, for we will
not put our guarantee on worthless articles.
We have already lost some money by refusing to deceive customers as to the char
acter of material that looks good but is not so, and we expect to lose mauch more in this
way, but when the people of Clarendon come to know us better they will appreciato our
; honest method of dealing and then our losses will be "as seed sown on good ground."
Wherevever they can be bought to best advanltage and we sell the same as low as they
can be sold by any one doing an honest basiness.
The Manning H ardware Com pany extends a hearty invitation to the peo
ple of Clarendon to visit their place of business, and if in need of anything in our line
we shall do our best to please and give satisfaction as to price and quality.
