There are a number of our subscribers
who are considerbly behind with their sub

desire to keep us out of our money, but as
we must have money to get out the paper
we will have to insh t upon those in arrears
settling up. We therefore give fair notice
that on the first day of Juue we will strike
off names; this is not a pleasure for us but
it is better to take off such names as will
not pay than to increase the indebtedness
and still get nothing. Another matter we
wish to call attenticn to). After the first
day of June we will strike from our mail

been getting the paper feee. We give this
notice in time and if the Times is worth

his time it was away from the main busi

where, surrounded by private residences,
iite a business is done.
About midnight of Monday an alarm was
sounded, by whom no one seems to know,
but it aroused the people, to discover the
tore of Mr. W. T. Wilkins on fire. The
entire interior was burning a-id the flames
shooting out of the top when the people
reached the scene. Fortunately there was
change in the wind or the warehouse and
al the buildings in that'section would have

[t was seen that the house was bound to go
tud the work of trying to save it was
hanged to saving the contents, which in
the main was done. Mr. Yenning saved
he larger part of his effects from the front
f the house, but the fire came on too fast 1
: save all the contents of the dining raom
Ld kitchen. WVhile the men were at work
aving the Venning furniture the building
was burning over their heads and some
stayed until it was too dangerous to remain
It was by the hardest work that a build-:
.ng between the Wilkins store and the
arehouse was kept from buraing, and itl
would not have been done had it not have
yeen for a sudden change in the wind
hich took the heat and flames in an oppo-I
de direction. The saving of this small
hanty was the saving of many thousand
lolars worth of property in that portion
>f the town.
Mr. W. T. Wilkins is the heaviest loser,
L a few days before he had just gotten in
uite a stock of goods. His stock he esti
nates at about $3,000 and his insurance is
1,000. Mr. Venning's insurance on fur
iitre is $200. Mr. F. 0. Richardlson's
uilding was insured for $700. Dr. WV. M.
Brockinton, the owner of the building oc
upied by Wilkins, has insurance for $300.

or the purpose of plunder, but there is no

My Dear Sir: I write again in re

war is an assured fact. There is evi

The following is the sentence to
which you take especial exception:
' would advise you, and through
Fou the military of our State, to
imply assume an attitude of willing
aess and not be outdone by other
tates." That is, assume a willing
ness to go when toe necessity arises,
s "any rushing or pressing to the
rront will do no good,"' for "the
struggle will be mainly on the
oean nnd "there will be little for
the armyv to do. Cuba will be sub
dued by starvation, or rather the
Spanish army there will, by this
means, be forced to surrender. Co
operation with the oflieers of the reg
ular army who are detailed to look
after our coast defences will, of
course, be desirable. and, in my opin
ion, this is all you will be e-ll:'t ol
to do. It would be suicido! to go to

and as there is r> necessity, for the
reasons above given, don't be anx

After all lnsin.:so was dispo::ei of I hcard
a drum beating. My hair rose, as I thought I
it was a warning that the Spanuiard were
approaching, but to my joy it was to march
to the Bcnbow house in order to have the
wants of the inner man replenished, and it
was a grand success, as :.l were folly satis
tied. Then the drum began beating again
and we were ordered to f;l in line by twos
and it was promptly data. I tloIrht sre
the Spaniards w.re 'oting, as I heard a
band coming down Main street. but in
place of Sp;anards I s. a long line of So
diers dressed m grav uniforms, keepigr
step to the mtusic il the com pany is som
thing Manning hould be roud of, which
no doubt it i,. They tUarched and
took position in our rear. halting and or
dering "arms." I gu ss some of them wore
borrowed for the occ'asion, as they had co
wait to see how others did before they exe
cuted the order. Thoy were soot called to
"Attention," an d took position on our right
and an order given to march. We took
the pavement for soe distance and ob
fiqued to the left over a brickyard and were
orered to halt and face the rear, when I
saw what I first thought was a Spanish fort,
and as we ha i no guns we were expected
to storm it with brickbats. I adjusted iy
glasses, and in plae- of a Spaish fort a
magnificent bmlding and the piazzas tilledI
with beautiful and elegantly dressed ladies
was'nt I h1appy. Very soon the coin
mnander appeared with three of the most
beautiful atd lovely of tI group.
Manning has ahIvs eIUted the distine
tion of having the most pretty girls accord
ing to population, and I have always
thought her entitled to her claim, but I
was informed that they had to borrow two
from the country for this special occasion.
The commander introdced them to the
U. C. V.'s, and one of tbem made a nice
little speech and said we must behave our
selves and be good "boys." I would have
run my head against a stone wal rather
than be naughty. The commander offered
three cheers. I was so intently looking at
them that I was like the borrowed soldiers
I waited till the others cheered, then I
cheered deep dlowni in my heart. One of
the ladies had a tray of button-hole ho
quets andi comrnene:d to divide them o't
amongst the most favored ones. The su
ply wvas exhausted before~ it came tuy turn
We then resumied the march to the depot.
I knew there was a sp'-eini car for t'ue cam p
but as I was not a Mariningite and kno
ing too there wvas not romt for half the
eatup. I waite.1 till the train arrived. I
boardeal it and found a seat in the Colum
bia car and( had the pleasutre of nmeeting
my old Colonel the be'ovedl and ho
ored Gen. Wade Hampton, atnd some other
of the old legion. Very soon Maj. Appelt
came in and infornmed toe that I wvas want
ed in the rear car. As I alvays obe' my
superior, I rose an d foilowed hici. When
the door was opened I was struch wit
wonder rod astonishment. I have not
seen a great de-al of this world, but though
I had seen some thingas th at were prett,
but I hadn't, in compar:sont with the dc
rations. I must leave the descriptiont to
others. I haed supposed Maj. Appelt had.
brought me in purposely to see the car-,
but lie said, ''Capt. Uradhamn wants you;"
you know the captain is sheril, antl I had
n;ticed his jailor aboard wxithz a brand. new
suit of clothes on. 1t tl.e'd over no a

may be correct. Un'.~ the other is not." ile
said it was the vote of the ladies. I bowed
Low and replied, "I always accept their
