Married last Thursday evening, by Rev.
James McDowell. at the residence of the
bride's mother, near Sammy Swamp, Mr.
W. Theodore Lesesne and Miss Callie Mc
Fadden, a daughter of the la:e Hon. Syd
ney McFadden. The groom is one of Ciar- I
endon's most progressive young farmers.
He is the proprietor of "Live Oak," one of
the Lest equipped plantations in this sec
tion of the State, a first class business man
and lie has a host of friends. The bride is
a st-kingly handsome woman and accom
pliied. We extend to this well mated
couple our sincere congratulations.
Loryea, the druggist, has a full line of
caraiinitive and soothing syrup.
We are glad that steps have been taken
to repeal the seed cotton license law. In
our judgment the law is wrong in principle,
but as long as it is on the statute books we
believe in its enforcement. No citizen has a
right to violate a law simply because be
does not approve of it. The best way to
wipe out an obnoxious law is to enforce it
strictly. We believe a man should be al
lowed to buy and sell whatever he sees tit
so long as it does not injure the healtb or
morals of the community in which he lives.
The intention of the seed cotton act was to
put a stop to the little traps which dot the
country every fall, that encourages stealing
from the fields, but it does not have the
desired effect. The amount of the license
fee is not sufficient to drive them out, and
if it were more, violations would be more
numerous. The best thin; that can possi
bly be done in the matter is to repeal the
license law, and if a man is caught buying
seed cotton at night he should be punished
Mr. Elisha Berry, of this place, says he
never had anything to do him so much
good and give such quick relief from rheu
matism as Chamberlain's Pain Balm. He
was bothered greatly with shooting pains
from hip to knee until he used this lini
ment, which affords prompt relief.-B. F.

A very sad occurrence happened last
Thursday afternoon near Silver, in which a
good white citizen was the victim of an
aroused negro's fury. It is very difficult to
get the particulars and, after talking
with a number of persons we obtained the
following statement, given to us as from a
negro who was an eye witness. Some days
ago a negro by the name of Sep Jones shut
up some hogs belonging to Mr. McDonald
Gre, bat after considerable persuasion of
a neighbor he turned the hogs out Jones
wrote Green a letter containing insulting
language, and on last Thursday while Mr.
Green was out looking after a forest fire he
saw Jones in the woods seated upon a log
with a gun across his lap. Green ap
proached Jones with a pitchfork in his
band, and after telling Jones that he had
received his letter and that it was imperti
nent, Jones rose up and shot Green full in
the face and then ran, and is now at large.
Mr. (Green will iose his right eye and may
lose liis life.

show what can be accomplished by the reg

it in their practice with great res ults, and
are relying on it in most severe cases. It is
guaranteed. Trial bottles free at R. B.

Manning was visited last Thursday by
Mr. r. Allen McQuary, the young man who
is going "around the world for an Arkan
sas girl and $5,000." Mr. McQuary has a
very youthful appearance and his manners
indicate gentle breeding. He arrived late
in the afternoon, dressed in the costume of
an ancient knight, saving the helmet which
he was forced to discard on account of in-!
jury to his eyes. Very shortly after his ar
rival a crowd gathered around him and
plied him with many questions, and his
answers were polite and unreserved. He
had with him two grey hounds, and the
horse which he rode seemed very weary.
Thursday evening he addressed quite a
gathering from the balcony of the court
house. His speech was an explanation of
is novel exploit, and it also had a consid
erable flavor of Coxevisma about it. He al
luded to the toiling mnasses and the unequal
distribution of wealth and the powerful in
fnence money' was exerting. After his
talk he sold some pamphlets which told all
about himself, his trip, its conditions and
his girl and her eccentric parent.

There is considerable uneasiness about
the small-pox epidemic, if it may be called
such, and the Board of IHealth, believing
that "an ounce of prevention is worth a
pound of cure," has called upon the town
to use any power that it may have to get
the people to vaccinate. The Town Coun
cil, at a special meeting. desiring to co-ope
rate with the health authorities in all mat
ters where the sanitary condition of the
comi.nity might be at stake, have adopted
a resoiution askingsevery man, woman an d
child to be vaccinated, that all possible
means be taken to keep the pest from our
community. The intendant was authorized
to make arrangements with a proper per
son to provide vaccination to such persons
as are unable to pay for the same. Ar
rangements were perfected with Dr. George
L. Dickson, and he will vaccinate in cases
of charity at the town's expense. In some
towns compulsory methods are being adop-I
ted by the town authorities, but our coun
cil do not care to resort to such violent
means, as they are satisfied that for the
public good,the citizens will be alive to the
situation and render assistance to the mu
nicipal authorities to keep this Small pox
pest out of our gates.
In accordance with a re-solution adop't,-d
by a mass-meeting of farmers held Jan u
ay 3rd, 1898, I call upon each chairman of
the townuship boards of commissioners to
issue a call for towliship meetings to be
held prior to the first Monday in February
next, anud there organize a "Cotton Growers'
Protective Association." That at said meet
ings delegates be elected to meet at the
court house in Manning on salesday in
February for the purpose of perfecting said
organization. Let there be a full attend
