We would call the attention of the town
authorities to the pasturing of cows in the
streets. The owners of these cows entrust
them to little negroes who take up their
time in playing instead of watching their
charges, and it often happens that little
children are frightened by the cows being
on the sidewalks. We know that cows
must be pastured and some one has to
drive them. but the authorities should re
quire of the owners that their cattle be not
permitted to feed on the sidewalks.

The Manning Guards may be called into

that, although their attendance upon drills
has been slim, Clarendon will have no rea

blot out and the same blood flows through
the veins of the Manning Guards of '98.

The Manning Minstrel troupe appeared
last Friday night before a large audience
in the Institute hall and from start to fin
ish they were the recipients of applause.
One of the features of the evening was the
trio by Messrs. Joe Wells, Joe Rhame and
Joe Gough; these three black Joes brougbt
down the house. The boys did very well
and their performance was an. improve
ment on the Mayesville troupe. We under
stand that this troupe propose in the near
future to visit Packsville and we would
also advise them to go on to Washington
and appear before the angry Congress;
perhaps they might succeed in smoothing
the wrinkles out of the brows of our belliger
ent statesmen and put them in such a good
humor that the war idea would be driven
from their minds.
The farmer, the mechanic and the bicy
cle rider are liable to unexpected cuts and
bruises. DeWitt's Witch Hazel Salve is the
best thing to keep on hand. It heals
quickly and is a well known care for piles.

We have received a letter from Col. D.
W. Brailsford. commander of Harry Ben
bow Camp, informing us that on account
of a previous engagement which cannot be
broken, Miss Lucie Barron, one of the
maids of honor to accompany the veterans
to Charleston, will be unable to go. and
that in her stead Miss H enrietta Brailsford,
a charming daughter of Capt. A. M. Brails
ford, has been appointed. We regret ex
ceeding that Miss Barron is prevented
from taking this trip because we know that
her gentle manners and sunny disposition
would add much to the pleasure of the bat
tescarred heroes, but she has a double in
Miss Brail'sfor., who is s'veet sixteen and
an elegant entertainer. The veterans will
have a sponsor and maids of honor who
will, by their loveliness, make the entrance
into the "City by the Sea" a halo of glory
and a pathway of' roses.
A little boy asked for a bottle of "get up

Editor Thz Tinrs:
Please give us a short space in your pa
per this week to say that we will probably
leave Manning Tuesday, 2eth, about 4 p.
m. for Charleston. An extra train has been
promised which will arrive in Charleston
before sundown, so all who desire to go
must be in Manning and report to me be
fore 2 o'clock of that day. Any one can go
for $1.65 round trip, and we would be glad
for as many friends to accompany us as
possible. We feel satisfied that we will
have accommodations in the city for at least
twenty old soldiers, and others can be ac
commodated about the city for $1 a day, so
no one need stay away. Dinner will be
served at 2 o'clock on Tuesday end badges
furnished to the Veterans. Col. Brailsford
wil be down early that day (unless he has
to go to war before that time) and arrange
all necessary papers. Let everybody come.

We Recommend 1o the Writer the itead
ing of Cantey's Statement.
Editor Tn TimEs:
You did right in upholding Cadet
Cantey in his stand in that most tin
fortunate affair. He is a Clarendon
boy, and I believe THE MANNING
TIsms is the only paper published in
the county. Sad indeed would have
been the situation had his conduct
been such that his own county paper
could say no word of praise. But
what I wish to call your attention to
is your trying to make a hero of him,
and load him down with the honor of
his father and uncle. If you admired
the zeal of the young man and de
sired to praise him for his keen sense
of duty and his daring to do it, even
when not on the post of duty, do it,
of course, give him all the credit he
is entitled to, for his own actions, but
none that belongs to others. Give
honor or blame where it is due. I
would not withhold a mite, but give
no more, as the poet expresses it,
"Neither praise or blame unduly."
The board did perfectly right in
expelling sixty-four refractory stu
dents, for certainly we all know they
were not expelled for trying to de
fend their "schoolboys' code of hon
or," but for their disregard of supe
rior officers and teachers. They have
been sufficiently punished and de
serve some sympathy. They never
dreamed that it would drift into any
thing more than showing a school
boy's disapproval of a "tell-tale." Cer
tainly they carried it too far when
they defied authority and let anger
get~ the better of reason. But, Mr.
Editor, we must remember that they
were only boys, and have charity for
them. Who of us have not boys at
home that have not their own idea of
honor and loyalty? Give the boys
the same opinions we accord Cadet
Cantey, that they were conscientious
in their actions, though to older and
wiser heads they were mistaken. But
others have made mistakes. They
were not soldiers on the battlefield
that deserted ranks or betrayed their
country; they were only school-boys,
with proud, fond mothers at home,
with fathers equally as much con
cerned about the welfare of their sons.
as Cadet Cantey's was of his.
Knowing the power of the press
and your paper being the only one
published in the county, I beg you
not to warp the minds of your read
ers; be generous to the unfortunate
boys, and lend a helping hand to have
Cadet Cantey being conscientious
in doing what he considered to be his
duty, let him show true manhood
now; prove to the world he has no
malice towards his schoolmates. Let
him urge his father to call a meeting
of the citizens of this county and ask
to have his schoolmates reinstated.
Such a meeting has been held in
Laurens and should be held in every
county in South Carolina asking that
the decision of the board be revoked,
it not being as inexorable as the "laws
of the Medes and Persians." Let
Clarendon have the grandest meeting
of all, urged on by Cadet Cantey and
presided over by his father; that
indeed would show "a worthy son of
a worthy sire." _ R. E.

c to ''HE TIMES:
Well, it's a funny thing to see the
people collecting every week to hear
the news about the great war that is
about to be fought between the Unit
ed States and Spain.
Mr. Editor. while the war question
is the topic of the day, rush out your
paper to this office so we all can get
the news too, for there is some one
to read the news to others just as
soon as THE TIFrs 2ets here. Some
of the Salemites will laugh and some
will almost cry over the idea of going
to war with a little nation like Spain.
I will say just here, don't grieve over
such, but plant your cottou, for it is a
good time to plant. I am so glad
that I don't live right on the public
road, for every man that passes by
will say, "What is the news about the
war?" Then vou may stand and talk
one homu probably to a man that has
work at home to (io, while the time
and tide may not wait for the mai.
Ai, my .riends, how often have I seen
the man wait for the tide. I have
seen the laboring man-the honest
toiler-kill so much of his valuable
time fooling with 5-cent cotton.
Just as soon as war is declared be
tween the United States and Spain J
will enlist, and I believe others will
follow, tbough I do not favor war at
all, but if it is declared by Congress
I an ready to aid President McKin
ley, for all the way through this try
ing time of the war question Mc
Kinley has been asking for peace and
if a set of officers run it over him
then he will stand in my estimation
as high as George Washington ever
did. President McKinley realizes the
seriousness of the situation I suppose
and has plated it in the hands of
Congress. I LIope that Congress will
reflect credit upon our nation in the
action they take upon the war ques- I
