Killing in the Fork.
About three o'clock yesterday afternoon
a homicicle occured on the Youmans place
about 9 miles from Manning, and about
two hours later Mr. Simeon M. Youmans
came to town accompanied by his uncle
Mr. R. M. Nelson, to consult an Attorney,
which resulted in Mr. Youmans returning to
his unprotected widowed mother last night,
and the notification of Coroner Andrews.
The story of the deplorable affair as we
could gather it was that Mr. Youmans had
some trouble with a colored man by the
name of Robert McIntosh about a settle
ment, they were in a field, and McIntosh
who is a big burly fellow with a bad repu
tation for impudence and fighting having
been twice on the chaingang, gave Mr. You
mans considerable insolence and became
unbearably insulting, at which he was or
dered out of the field. McIntosh left the
field saying to Mr. Youmans, "you - yel
low son of a -, I will get you,"and walk
ed up the road towards the house lane Mr.
Youmans went on to the house and the ne
gro stood in the road at the head of the
lane repeating the foul language and mak
ing thr' ats of violence, again he was order
ed off, and instead of going he advanced
upon Mr. Youmans with an open knike in
his hand; Mr. Youmans had wnen he reach
ed his home gotten his gun and after re
peated de- ;ards that his assailat should
not advance having unheedingly been made,
he fired, killing McIntosh almost instantly.
The gun was loaded with turkey shot and
took effect in the breast about two inches
below the throat.
Coroner Andrews left early this morn
ing for the scene of the killing.
This is an affair greatly to be deplored,
for it is a serious matter, this taking of life
and it matters not which way it results in
the law, it is a shadow h~wging over one
which can never be effaced. If the story
given us is correct the killing of this un
fortunate negro was brought about by his
foolish conduct and Mr. Youmans was
forced to act to save himself from bodily
3 ,ars the The Kind You Have Always Bought
Marriage at Alcolu.
Quite a large and expectant crowd gath
ered at the chapel at Alco! u last Wednes
day evening, November 2nd, to witness the
marriage of Miss Julia Harvin of that place
to Mr. J. B. Hinsou of Georgia.
The church was decorated with the
queen of fall flowers-the chrysanthemum
-and arches of evergreens were across
each aisle and in the centre. Con ipicuous
in the decorations were two hearts made of
chrysanthemums, emblematic of the two
hearts so soon "to beat as one."
When the first notes of the Wedding
March were played by Miss Addie McFad
den the bridal party entered the church in
the following order:
Left aisle-Miss Belle Plowden, wearing
cream organdy, with Mr. Costin.
Miss Lempie Jones, red organdy, with
Mr. Belton Bagnal.
Miss Bessie Hodge, white orgnndy, with
Mr. McFadden Plowden.
Right aisle-Miss Kitty McFadden,cream
organdy, with Mr. Claud Lesesne.
Miss Etta Bagnal, red organdy, with Mr.
Miss Alice Harvin, white organdy, with
Mr. Robert Burgess.
Two couples came up the aisles at the
same time, crossing to take their places in
the chancel. The bride entering with her
father, was et at the altar by the groom
and Mr. Nettles, brother-in-law of the bride.
The bride's costume was white organdy
and lace, made en train, and she wore a
veil and orange blossoms.
The ceremony, which was quite an im
pressive one, was performed by Rev. James
McDowell, and afterwards the bridal party
went to the home of the bride, where quite
an enjoyable reception was held.
The presents were numerous and hand
some, showing the popularity of the young
Mr. and Mrs. Hinson spent several days
with relatives before going to their home in
Georgia. They carry with them the best

A Sure Sign ef Croup.
Hoarseness in a child that is subject to
croup is a sure indication of the approach
of the disease. If Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy is given as soon as the child be
comes hoarse, or even after the croupy
cough has appeared, it will prevent the at
tack. Many mothers who have croupy chil
dren always keep this remedy at hand and
find that it saves them much trouble and
worry. It can always be depended upon
and is plasant to take. For sale by R4. B.
A Fine Artist.
Artist A. Goldberg left last Monday for
Orngeburg, where he expects to tempo
rariiy locate. Mr. Goldberg understands
his business and there are many homes in
this county whose walls are adorned with
pictures of loved ones, the work of Mr.
Goldberg. A magnificent specimen of his
work can be seen in the Manning Metho
dist church-a life size portrait of the late
Rev. Henry M. Mood. At Calvary he gave
to that congregation a fine poitrait of
Father Mahoney, and at St. Paul Rev. -.
-. Owens' portrait, the gift of Artist Gold
berg, is prized highly. Just before leaving
this gentleman called upon us and showed
us many testimonials given him by his
patrons in Clarendon, and, from the many
we took the following certificate: "This is
to certify that work done for me by Mr.
Goldberg was entirely satisfactory. He is
an expert in his line." (Signed)
Then he had similar certificates from D.
J. Bradham, Sheriff; J. H. Timmons, Clerk
of Court; A. J. Ricenbourg, Magistrate; R.
R. Billups, W. T. Lesesne, R. I. Coskrey
an d others.
We have seen many specimens of his
work and have no hesitancy in pronounc
ing it first class. Parties desiring work in
his line can mail their photographs to Mr.
Goldberg at Orangeburg.

FALL BIRGIIN SA LEE
His store is jammed with great bargains. Clothing,
Shirts. Hats and Shoes. Moving them all at prices never be
fore heard of.
We must reduce our stock of Clothing, and those who
come to our store with the money and want a suit of clothes
will never leave without buying. We are not given to mak
ing false alarms-we mean just what we say. We defy any
body to offer better values than we are offering.
A fellow came along the other day and offered to close
out a lot of Gent's Negligee Shirts at 50 cents on the dollar
and we swooped up the entire lot of 15 dozen and are now
able to offer a $1 shirt for only 50c. Those who miss this of
fer will miss one of the bargains of their lives. It is no use
talking, we are selling gent's hats beyond the reach of com
petition, and why? Because we are always on the lookout
for bargains. Gent's fine hats for $1 that cannot be bought
elsewhere for less than $1.50. That's the way we do busi
ness and* that's the reason why we cannot be downed. We
are always on the lookout for bargains and when we get them
we put a small profit on them and let them go cheap.
In this department we defy all competition. Our line of
double width Serges at 10Oc per yard cannot be met in this
town and our line of Fancy Dress Goods and plain Cashmeres,
in all shades, at 25c per yard has no equal in this part of the
county; silk velvet and gimp trimming.
We have left on hand yet a few single patterns of Fine
Dress Goods which we offer at 20 per cent. discount. Ladies,
if you want a fine dress very cheap now is the time to get it.
In our Millinery Department we are offering some great
values. Don't fail to see our ladies' hats before you buy.
