The Manning Guards recached here safe

Light Infantry. Our train being crowded,
the two last mentioned compantes came in

All of Sumter seemed to be at the depot

Some we know could have joined us. We

We are quartered on the second floor of

Our 1st lieutenant regrets that we were not

The Manning Guards responded to

As soon as Governor Ellerbe called
for volonteers, in compliance with
the request of President McKinley
Captain W. C. Davis, desirous of
giving his historic command a place
in the picture "and near the flashing
of the guns," went to work to get
the boys together, but the task was
a hard one, for the reason that, un
der our militia laws thirty-two men
pass muster, and it was with great
difficulty a company could be main
tained, the State virtually giving no
support to her militia: however Cap
tain Davis, with his usual energy, de
termined that Clarendon should not
be found skulking when the country
asked for her services and he set
about to meet the requirements of
the United States, i. e., to raise
eightv-four men, rank and file.
sight and day Captain Davis
worked and not without obstacles,
but he succeeded sufficiently to be
accepted by Colonel Auld, who was
detailed to furnish three companies
from his regiment, and last Thursday
morning the company left Manning
sixty strong, escorted to the depot by
the Pickaninny Brass Band, which
played patriotic airs until the train
At the depot Captain Bradham,
who has faced an enemy on more
than one occasion and whose empty
sleeve is his badge of honor, gave
the bovs a talk. The language he
employed sent a thrill through his
hearers and many an eye became
moistened. This veteran knew what
the boys would soon experience and
as he talked to them his whole frame
quivered with emotion. Capain Da
vis responded and thanked the gal
lant old veteran for his words of
counsel and cheer and promised to
endeavor to make a record equal to
that of the old corps whose name the
company bears. He, too, seemed
much affected, but in his breast
there was a pride that can only be,
felt by a man who responds to;
duty. Some ladies, children and
a few of the citizens were there
to see them off, quite in contrast
with other towns where business was
suspended and the soldier boys were
given a "God bless you" from the en
tire populace. The cause of this ap
parent indifference here, might have
been on account of there being only
one man in the company whose resi
dence is in the town, although on
the company roll there appears the
names of several Manningites, who
have no family ties to hold them,
but these declined to volunteer as
was their legal right, therefore the
town of Manning can only glory in
having in the service Captain Davis.
All the rest are the brawny and nervy
sons of our Clarendon farmers. These
farmer boys who have sacrificed
their all and have gone forward to
protect the nation's honor will al
ways, wherever they go, remember
that noble, lovely woman, Mrs. J.
Horton Rigby, who, with several
other ladies, went among the boys,
shook their hands and bade them
good-bye, and in her tear moistened
eyes the boys read the prayer that
se was making in their behalf. The
boys appreciated her goodness of
heart and when we left them in camp
numbers of them asked us to be re
membered to Miss Cammie.
On the arrival of the train a spe
cial car was provided for the soldiers
and as It rolled out the ladies waved
their hankerchiefs and the boys
cheered- At all the stations on the
route were groups of people who
cheered the boys in blue, and when
the train reached Sumter the entire
population was there to see their
boys off: they also made much of
the boys from Clarendon and they
seemed considerably surprised when
they learned that the Manning
Guards was made up entirely from
the country with the exception of the
captain, and he an original country
boy. Our boys answered their ques
tions about the cause of no Manning
boys being with them and gave as
an excuse "the boys from Manning
are gentlemen of business and have
not time to serve their country;"
others said "their papa's would not
let them go, and their mamma's
were afraid they would soil their
high-standing collars and their pat
ent leather shoes;" then others ac
counted for their absence by the
"insufficient number of commissioned
officers allowed to a company," and
still others said "it was a lack of
grit." One of the Sumter ladies told
our boys to make out a list of the
fellows~ who flunked and each one
would be presented with a mother
From Sumter to Columbia wher
ever a stop was made the boys made
the welkin ring with their cheers,
and when the train rolled under the
union shied in Columbia hundreds
of people were there to greet them.
Major Thompson took charge and
the Darlington Guards, Manning
Guards and Sumter Light Infantry,
headed by a brass band, were march
ed to the fair grounds.
Clarendon's company had more
uniformed men than the others and
they created a good deal of favora
ble comment. Our boys were as
signed to fine quarters, the second
story of machinery hall, where they
were provided with mattresses.

by citizens to refuse. This affair resulted
in the Governor issuing an order diismiis
ig all who refused to obey. At that timwe
fctional politics was rtunninz high and
this was, in a large measure, the cause of
the citizens obstracting the governor in his
efforts to execute the law. Not alone did
some of our citizens persuade the boys to
"rfuse," but it so happened that M1r. A. C.
Jones, the present Staite chairman of the
Prhibition exi-cutive committee, was here
that memorable rnght, and he also worket
hard with the bcys to prevent them from
"helping Tillman to enforce the dispensary
law." Ever since this unfortunate affair
there has been a coolness against the com
pany. Those who were dismissed regarded
the'Governor's iactionl in expelling them
and publishing them to the world arbitrary
and unjust. The result was that very few
of the town men were members of the -:om
pany at the tinme war was declared.
When Captain Davis undertook to alnost
treble the size of his company as required
by the United States authorities he found
that old feeling still existing, enough at
least to furnish an excuse for- not volun
teering, but he did at least expect the
unmarried members of his company to
stand by hira, and it was these who re-,
fused, tihat keenly disappointed him. He
got up) his comoany and is now in camip

This is a record-breaking year.
Times are very hard and money
searce. War is now upon us which
will make it more so.
Taking this into consideration I
have decided to break the record by
selling goods cheaper than they have
ever been sold before.
I mean business and mean what I
say, and to show that I am going to
do what I say, will give you
A Few Prices.

line and as pretty as ever bought in
this or any other town. I can sell
