At a tin e unknown to the writer, Mr. W.

Mr. A. L. Chavis recently killea three

us that he made a good supply of lar:: and

the bogs, because he always raises fiue
hogs, bnt it will take more than his e:npty
word to convince us abont the quant~ty

A few weeks ago Mr. W. D. McFadden of
Sandy Grove had two valuable milch cows
killed by being poisoned. _Thes cows
strayed upon the premises of a neigubot
who careless.ly left paris gree~n lying
around loose and the coss got toid ot the
stuff and died. This was g severe los, to
Mr. McFadden, whose wife is in ieeble
health and depended upon the milk for her
Ssustenance. People should not be allowed
to leave poisr'n lying around loose; it i~
criminal carelessness and should be so re
garded by the law.
A reliable farmer told us last Monda3
that a friend ot his saw whiskey sold by thi
bottle on the streets of Manning last Satur
day. We expressed our doubts, but be in
slsted that his informant wa a thioroughly
reliable man. There has been a saspio
ot late that some of the truit stands on the
street are dealing in liqnor, andi :,ome igte~
told us they knew it to be a fact, at the
same time they would not testify agains
the parties. In our judgment the towc
council would do a good thing to drive all
the stands from the street.

mencesi calling for lion. James E. Tindal,
who came forward and in a few Linlutes the
attention of the entire audience was riveted
upon him and tuey were drinking in the
words of good reasoning and good advice
that fell from his lios. Mr. Tindal regard
ed indiscreet management as having mucih
to do with the present depressed condi
itions. He told them that a few years ago
cotton went down flat and farmers were on
the verge of ruin. The ntxt ycar they did
not 'o in debt. acd farmers, both white
and black, had money in the fall; their
barns were tiled with corn and everybody
was happy. Then there was a failure in
the Western grain crop. and every Mon
tana horse that could be brought into this
State was sold to our farmers. The result
was that these Montana horses ate up all of
our corn and we had to go back into debt
ant feed our stock on bought corn, which
never fattens faint stock. We could h:tve
don e without many things, but because we
could buy on credit we were not as mindful
of our interests as we should have been.
He urged his hearers not to go in debt, and
those who were forced to do so, to only buy
those things which they could not do a:th
out. He believed it wise to organize and
act with each other. Mr. Tindal's talk was
a dispassionate review of the farmers' at
lairs, and he made some suggestions if fol
lowed will be productive of great good.
The chairman was reqnested to issue a
call asking the chairmen of the township
boards to call nieetings in their respective
townships tor the purpose of organzation
and to send delegates to a convention to be
held in Manning or salesday in February.
Mr. Elisha i erry, of this place, says he
never had anything to do him so inu-eh
good and give such quick relief from rhen

New Year's day was cue of great rejoicing
among the coiored population; it was cels
brated in commemaoration otf the Abraham
Lincoln ez-tncipation proclamation. FEtrly
in the morning great crowds from all se
tions came to Manning, and from the vari
ous sections came bands of music. About
midav the town was full of the celebrat
ing mass composed of male and female, and
to their credit be it said that out of' the
tree thousand colored peonle who were re
joicing over the declaration which resulted
in releasing them trout slavery, we did not
see a single one uder the influence of liq
or. Men and women, boys and girls did
treir rejoicing in a manner to evoka comn
mnts of commendation. The procession
was formed at Odd Fellows' hall and the
march was taken up th cough Boyd street,
through Dinkins, iRailroad avenue, and up
Brooks street to the court house squire.
The following brass bands furnished the
music for the occasion:
Salem-A. B. Bennett, leader.
Maivinia -J. C. Cooper, leader.
IPanola-Isam Code, leader.
Et. P'aul-John Watson, leader.
Eureka--S. J. Strother, leader.
Black River Pickaninny -Rt. A. White,
After what may be termed a musical con
test by the various bands, the meeting was
opened with prayer by Rev. P. E. Ponmpey,
wose words were sting and showed an
appreciation of the day he and his race
were celebrating. Then the Emancipation
Proclamation was read by I. H. Hilton.
Then a musical pandimonium broke
loose, each band playing an independent
tune and men and women danced. One
ebony sister came to town dancing a sort
of a waltz de Afric and she kept the thing
up all day. Sne waltzed to the music of as
hymn as well as a jig. It was her day and
she endeavored in her own peculiar way to
make herself glad by kicking care away.
Rev. L. B. Elierson was acting master of
ceremonies anid ha introduced Miss Maggie
DeLaine who, in a very creditable manner
delivered a poem from Wendell Phillips.
Then R. H. Richardson of Wedgedeld,
the orator of the day, was introduced,
and he for about one hour entertained his
hearrs itha review of their past and
ther pesetand made predictions for the
future of the race. The writer intended to
ear the address, but the weather was cold
and so uncomfortable he felt compelled to

aimusement by getting the country damsels
to shufdle their dainty feet, while they would
