when the fellow entered the store,
and he had him arrested and locked

In passing some of the stores we notice
in the windows some large 'cannon crack

a matter of public safety cannon crackers
and roman candles should be forbidden on
the streets whereby horses may become
frightened and do such damage as cannot
be repaired. We do not mean to restrict
the fun of the boys, but we mean to limit
the to paces. where tecan do no harm.

Remember, that after the 31st of
this month a penalty will go on tax
es. The treasurer says his collections
are coming in very slow., most of the
large taxpayers have a way of hold
ing their money to the last moment
hoping for an extension. But Gover
nor Ellerhe says there will be no ex
tension this year, he believing that
the class intended to be benifited by
an extension are not benefited, but
that it is the banks, railroads, mills
and other corporations that take ad
vantage of an extension of time.
The sooner a cough or cold is cured with
out harm to the sufferer the better. Lin

such a cough care is within reaeh? It is
pleasant to the taste. R. B. Loryea.
Recently a conversation took place in
this town and the topic was the growth of
Manning, its freedom from scandal so
common in other towns, and the sobriety
of our young men. It was asserted that
not one of the young men of this town are
addicted to the drink habit, when one of
the party astounded the rest by asking
"are you dreaming?" and he seemed sur
prised for the lack of knowledge of the ha
bits of our young men. Said this gentle
men "we have some tough customers right
here like elsewhere, and when you people
are asleep these chaps are out on a lark
and get so drunk that assistance is needed
to get them home. Not so long ago a party
was out, and if you had noticed their eyes
the next morning you would have thought
that they had washed iheir faces in boiling
water; they actually had to wear their hats
on the back of their heads, so swollen had
their heads become from the spree. These
chappies may think they are fooling the
public, but oh, no; the care-worn faces of
parents and the serious faces of their em
ployers tell the tale, that the conduct of
these young men is a serious matter."
This information was a surprise to the
party and we hope the gentleman is mis
taken, that the party referred to was none
of our boys, and if he did see any of the
Manning boys they were not under the
influence of liquor. We do not believe in
holding too tight a rein on youth, because
we know that "boys will be boys," but
then there is a difference in being "boys"
and the cause of aching hearts of parents,
the loss of employers' confidence and the
loss of respect of the community at large.
Bear the The a Bog
A Good Man Crosses the River.
Died suddenly last Friday evening,
Maj. J. R. McLean, in the seventy
second year of his age.
Maj. Jesse R. McLean was born in
Guilford county, N. C., and the home
of his childhood was very near the
historic Guilford battle ground. He
was of Scotch-Irish descent and his
tall and stately figure and heavy
eyebrows indicated not less than his
name that he was of Scotch origin.
The major was handsome, modest,
clean and pure in his life and very
intellectual. He was a first honor
graduate of Davidson College and
yet the first information his children
had that their father had graduated
with distinction, was learned by
reading a history of the college. He
was averse to "blowing his own
horn" and never courted praise. He
graduated in law and was admitted
to the Bar, but his mother was
strongly opposed to his entering the
legal profession and he yielded to
his mother's will against his own
judgment. He has taught school
fromsoon after he graduated until a
few hours before his death, excepting
the four years that he served in the
Confederate army. He had a very
fourishing school at Fayetteville, N.
C., when the war commenced and
the patrons urged him not to give up
the school, but he was among th~e
first to volunteer his services to his
country,and took part in the capture
of the United States arsenal at Fay
ettevile. He went into the war as a
lieutenant and at the battle of Kings
ton he was promoted to the office of
major, but he was not in active ser
vice all the while, for he was detailed
to the camp of instruction at Ral
eighto instruct the recruits and con
scripts, and then for a time he had
charge of the important and .un
pleasant duty of enrolling conscripts
which kept him continually on the
go, but this and every other duty he
discharged faithfully. He was a
teacher in the Floral Female College,
North Carolina, during the existence
of that popular school. He taught
ten years at Marion in this State.
He taught at Red Springs, Spring
Hill, Plainview and other places.
Few men have had more pupils and
none have loved their pupils more
and been more loved by them. He
was a young old man, keeping up
with the times. He was a home
man-he loved his home and loved
his wife, children and grandchildren
devotedly. He had a kind word for
everybody and something kind to
say of every one. -Many hearts will
be made sad by his death in the two
Discovered by a Woman.
Another great discovery has been made,
and that too, by a lady in this counftrv:
"Disease fastened its clutches upon her and
for seven years she withstood its severest
tests, but her vital organs were undermined
and death seemed imminent. For three
months she coughed incessantly, and could
not sleep. She finally :jiscovered a way to
recovery, by purchasing of us a bottle of
Dr. King's New Discovery for Consump
tion, and was so much relieved on taking
first dose that she slept all night, and with
two bottles has been absolutely cured. Her
name is Mrs. Luther Lutz. Thus writes

Our Home Advertisers.
THE TimEs will be issued only once more
before Christmas and we feel it a part of
our duty to the public, to let them know
how things are progressing and where they
may go to make those purchases, that cus
tom has brought about for this season of
the year. The wide-awake merchant is
ever on the watch to catch the trading eye
of the public, and knowing that the sav
ings of a twelve months is about to ie
fetched out of its hiding plice, with a bus
iiess instinct he transforms his place of
business from the ordinary market house
into a bazaar, and with all kinds of happy
making trinkets to delight the heart and
tickle the fancy, ha caters for the savings of
old and young alike; and such a merchant
is no respecter of persons; all classes and
conditions are welcomed into his store, and
n response to the silvery jingles down in
the jeans of the trader, comes the silvery
laughter and the rustling packages from
over the merchant's counter.
S. A. RIGBY.
In making our rounds, the first place we
dropped into was S. A. Rigby's, and after
finding a pair of pantaloons to keep the
chilly blasts from our limbs, we stood up
by the stove and feasted our eyes on the
material he has on his shelves in his gro
cory department, for a jam-up Christmas
dinner, and while in this end of the store a
glance into his ware room made us wonder
if, after all, the predictions of hard times is
not a dream, because there was, it seemed
to us. everything that man requires to live
upon, and Bill Trescott, with beaming
countenance and high massive forehead,
ready to serve the necessaries of life to the
purchaser. Rigby's wareroom is a com
plete commissary and contains enough
groceries to keep us all full and happy.
We could not stay at one place always, so
n our way out we glanced at the show
cases containing all the leading styles of
neckwear, the very shing for a -I I to give
her fellow, because if she gets close enough
to him to give it to him in the neck, there
is not apt to be any "foolin'" in the busi
ness. A pretty necktie from a pretty girl
o her fellow, is almost as binding as a ring
would be from the chap himself. Rigby's
shelves contain a full and complete stock
>f everything that -an be profitably han
dled in a general store. He keeps the
leading styles in dress goods, clothing,
hats and shoes, and makes a boast of not
being undersold by any one.
Rigby for several years has prided him
self on being the banta Claus of Manning,
and his center tables show that he pro.
poses to hold to his reputation. On his
tables there is every conceivable toy one
can think of, and a selection can be made
with all ease, for the infanL, child, boy or
girl, youth, maid, man, woman, father,
mother, grandmother, grandfather, sister,
brother, teacher, preache: or county editor.
Besides having a corps of very affable
lerks to make 3 our stay in the store pleas
ant, Miss Olivia Ingram presides with
grace over the dress goods and ladies' de
partment. Go and take a look at Rigby's
W. E. JENKINSON.
We next cross over to the hustling, bus
Ling, pushing and enterprising W. E.
Tenkinson, and find him preparing from
his new invoices an advertisement for TE
TIEa, while his clerks who are not busy
selling goods,are opening up and marking,
getting ready for the purchaser to make the
call. Jenkinson's store is an emporium
which would do credit to a much larger
town, and is the result of a thorongh and
%n intelligent mercantile management.
Jenkinson started out small like most
scessiul men, and by a judicious use of
printer's ink and a constant watch on his
business be has brought himself to be re
garded by the business world, as one of the
best bltainess men in central or lower
South Carolina. One of the great addi
tions to this finely arranged place of busi
ness is the millinery department in charge
f Miss Laura Beekham. Here is one
f those enticing places that causes a wo
man's heart to leap with joy and a man to
wear patched pants; it is here where a
an promises to let his wife go to revel in
ihapes, ribbons, feathers, and flowers and
then when she does go, and the bill is sent
in he casts a mournful look upon his
hreadbare coat and picks at the patch on
his breeches, while he begs an indulgence
r a discount, and then when the bill is re
eipted he goes'-among his friends with his
troubles and the extravagance of his home
in these hard times. It is not only in Jen
kinson's millinery that inducements are
~ffered to part with your lucre; why, the
nan has a trap set in every part of his
store to catch your change. A look through
ie various departments will convince any
e that his advertisements in 1'az TIMEs
ire no ghost stories, but they are based'
zpon solid business facts, which he backs
ip every time he is called on.
.Jenkinson is an up-to-date business man
ho believes in having what the people
want and at prices which will reach their
eans. *He was the first in town to cut
prices and place in the public prints what
ise would sell certain articles at, which
~howed that he not only defied competi
son, but rather courted it. Has he suc
eeled? Remember how Jenkinson started
md the backset he received by the fire of
L896, then see' his store today-shelves
packed, counters piled up and tables filled
Jenkinson stands in the commercial
uting world "in a solid condition" with
business houses from every market in the
United States soliciting his patronage. The
utelligent readier will discern at a glance
hat a man who has raised himself up to
he plane where the markets of the world
re thrown open to him and bid him enter,
a safe man to do business with and
Jenkinson is such a man. He invites
ivery body to see what nice things he has to
make a marry Christmas.

well known as a pharmacist of fine repute,
keeps his stock of drugs up to a high stand
ird and is jealous of his reputation. Dr.
Loryea will not entrust his prescription

in his work, but while Dr. Loryea is a fine
druggist he is also an energetic business
man, and keeps his store well stocked with
those articles which can only be found in a
well-arranged drug store, such as toilet
goods, perfumery, fine stationery, cigars,
tobacco, confectionery and optical goods;
he also carries a fine line of oils, paints
and glass, and to drive away any reluc
tance any one might have of going in a
medicine store, he has placed on his
shelves a fine assortment of Christmas
cards, beautiful china and glass goods to
attract the public and invite them to look
upon the beautiful. Loryea's Christmas
goods are exceedingly attractive and cheap.
THE XANNNG EABDWARIE 00
Did you ever go into the Manning Hard
ware Company's establishment? If you
have not been there lately, then go now,
and the manager will take pleasure in show
ing you through his stock of hardware, cut
ery, fire arms, sporting goods, farming im
plements. tinware, stoves and everything
that is used in the culinary department of
a well regulated home. Mr. Frank P. Er

and an all-round iron and tin worker. He
can do anything with a piece of tin or zinc,
lead or iron that any mechanic can, and in
the handling of silver he is an expert, hav
ing traveled to a large extent, his experi
ne with the world has given him a fine
insight into the mysteries of business sci
nce and our readers will find no man more
desirous to drive a trade than he. Mr. Er
rin takes special pride in the mnachinery
and tool branch of his business, and when
it omes to fittings for machinery or tools

is upplied with a class of goods that gives
C. W. KENDALL.
It is always pleasant to see signs of ac
tivity, and when we have it in our own
id it is suc a source of gratification
that the subject of this article will pardon
us if we expose to public view that which
his personal modesty endeavors to hide.
We speak of C. W. Kendall, the Racket
man in the store with the yellow front, and
from which there issues forth large bun
dles in yellow packages, neatly done up by
the hands of a corps of pretty salesladies
and handsome (?) young men.
Mr. Kendall has not always resided in
Manning, but he came here and before
many months rolled around his name and
his store were in the minds of the entire
trading public in this county. How was
this condition brought about? Surely not
by quietly sitting down in the back end of
his store to wait for customers to come in;
no, it was by filling his store with all kinds
of goods and then ascertaining what others
were selling them at, cut the price still
lower, and sending forth an invitation
through TE TIM3s to all who were bur
dened with high prices to come to.Kendall
and he would make them light. He placed
in cold, black printer's ink pries which
sent cold chills down the backs of men
who did not know how to go to market.
He struck dumb a class of merchants who
found Kendall offering through THE TimS
goods as cheap as they themselves could
buy. He paralyzed with astonishment the
fellow who first saw Kendall's odd prices,
and by keeping up his stock and contin
uing to give the public surprises he has
built up a trade vast in extent. Kendall
advertises because he wants to sell his
goods and because he wants people to
know that he is in business for the money
that can be made out of it. He knows that
were he to follow in the footsteps of some
merchants who do not advertise, the people
would not be rushing into his store for up
to-date goods with up-to-date prices. No,
they would go to the man in town that did
advertise, or go to some other market.
It is men like Kendall that give a town a
commercial name. It is his racket that
draws trade from far and near; it is him
and others with the same kind of get-up
that starte a town on the growth and makes
property have a value. Kendall, if asked
would blushingly deny having made
money, principally out of respect for his
fellow-merchant who would not advertise
and is kept busy brushing the dust and
cobwebs from his goods for want of cs
tomers to handle them, but we can say that
his business is a success, and so will every
body say when they walk into his depart
ment store, from the front door to the mil
linery department in the rear.
If you want to see a magnificent assort
ment of Christmas goods it will please your
optics to let them peep into the yellow
front racket store. If we had the space to
spare we would take pleasure in publishing
a list of Kendall's Christmas goods.

HARVIN & BARRON.
Among the largest establishments in
town is that of Harvin & Barron, and, not
withstanding the depressed condition of
the cotton market, their store is heavily
stocked with dry goods, shoes, bats, cloth
ing, groceries, and in fact they keep every
thing. In their line of dress goods their
stock is hard to beat. They keip a class of
goods seldom found outside of a large city
and every piece of their fine goods has suit
able trimmings of the very latesi. styles; as
it is with their dress goods department so
it is with their entire stock. When this
season's goods were bought the selections
were made with a view to prevent those
wishing fine goods from going to other
markets,anid it has had the effect of forcing
others to raise the standard of their stocks.
A party can buy as nice quality of goods in
anning as he or she can anywhere in the
State and this condition is largely due to
the efforts of Mr. A. I. Barron, manager of
the firm of-Harvin & Barron.
Among the novelties displayed in this
store for the holidays is a magnificent
rockery display in the center of the store.
Christmas gifts of usefulness can be bought

than carry it over until another season.

Not that we are going out of the business, but we want to
get clear of our Fall Goods so next spring we will be able
to offer NICE, CLEAN, New and Attractive Goods and not
something that is five years out of date, or any old stock
that has been packed away for ten years.
Our Milliner has gone back North to select and study
the fashions for next spring.

hats from us (for the whole family) for the same money
she paid for one or two not as good as ours in other milli
nery places in town before we opened, I think that sounds
like we arg selling $5 hats for less than $2.50. We have

sold cheaper than ever. If you need one come and get it
now AT WHOLESALE COST.
