It is the duty of a newspaper to deal lion
estlv with its readers, and especially so
when a pestilence is going over the coun
try. Smallpox has had its effect on busi
ness by preventing numbers of people from
coming to town to make purchases, but we
wish to say that they are unnecessarily
frightened. Manning has taken every pre
caution against the pest, and although the
disease has been in the county for a long
time, but one case has developed here.
This is, in a measure, due to the vigilance
of our town authorities and the board of
health. The measures of prevention have
not stopped yet; the town council has re
quired all persons to become vaccinated.
and made it compulsory, hence about every
person in town has been vaccinated.
The only case so far develbped here is
that of Mr. W. H. Trescott, and be is re
covering rapidly and will be out soon.
When it is considered that the disease has
been in nearly every section of the county,
it is remarkable bow fortunate Manning
has been to escape with only one case.
There is not as much danger from the dis
ease in Manning as there is in the Silver,

sending us the several boxes of eatables a

not only for our S0 odd half starved men,
but for our invited guests, the commis

kindly loaned me cups, plates, knives and
forks, and in honor of the occasion and in
consideration of a well-filled plate for him
self, put a little extra sweetening in the
coffee he gave us.

A~oTHEE LETTER FROM CAMP.
Camp Lee, Columbia, S. C., June 6, '98.
Editor THE TIMEs:
IThe captain, I am told, has thanked our
friends tar the many nice things sent us
last week, so we will not take up any more
space, only to extend my in dividual than ks.
Since our last letter our company has
lost, by death, one of its members, Many
have heard, no doubt, of our comrade Joe
MLeod's death. He diedI with pneumonia
on last Friday about 1 o'clock, after an ill
ness of about eight days. All the attention
that could be given by the best physicians,
trainel nurses and comrades was giver
him at the city hospital, where he was sent
just as soon as the first symptoms of pneu
monia were discovered.
Joe was a good boy; he was never seen
in bad company, he never shirked his
duty; gentle, true and kind was he, and a
braver man will never enlist.. We all loved
him and hated to give him up, but His will
must be done; his work was o'er, his time
had come, he has gone to receive his re
ward "Well done thou good and faithful
servant."~ We extend to his family our
His remains were carried to Manning on
the evening train the same day. The whole
battalion marched down to the depot to

He was burie d at Jordan the next day with
On last Thursday we were in Cuba, the
boys thought. Orders came that Major
Thompson would have to give up one of
his companies to complete the regiment. Of
course we wvere anxious until we heard that
the Sumter Light Infantry, Company "B,"
had been assigned this honor. This leaves
us with only three companies. The other
company will soon be made up, as recruits
are coming in rapidly.
The First South Carolina Regiment left
tnis afternoon for Chickamauga, and we,
Ithe battalicn, had the honor of' escorting
them to the depot. It was certainlv a grand
sght to see 1,500 men in line. The regi
ment of twelve companies is now going to
the front and the battalion will leave in a
day or two. While on the march to the de
Ipot Major Thcmpson read twvo telegrams to
us, one saying that the battaloju had been
