Why Is It
That W. E. Jenkinson holds his own in all
these hard times? Why, it is because he
sells fir-t class goods at very close prices
and treats his customers right and they
stand up to him it matters uot who tries
to take thet away.
No man can build up a permanent and
lasting trade unless they sell first class
goods and sell them at the right prices.
Cheap, trashy goods will make a good run

Moses Levi Ieati.
Died at his home last Thursday,
Moses Levi, in the 72nd year of his
The deceased was born in Bosen
bach, Bavaria, on August -, 12l.
He came to America at the age of 20
vears and at the age of 21 moved to
Sumter, where lie engaged in the
mereautile business; later, he mar
ried Miss Hannah Jacobs. in the city
of Charleston, and the pair, happy
in their mutual affection, began life
in Sumter. Having but limited
means, the undertaking was neces
sarilv in the face of adverse circum
stances, but it became the founda
tion for a successful career. Mr.
Levi's early career was a struggle and
lie met with conditions which
schooled him into the mastering of
necessities. Often he contended with
conditions which would have made
an ordinary man heart-sick and give
up in despair; often the gloom of dis
appointment settled about li busi
ness affairs, but as often would he,
by his indomitable spirit, dispel the
gloom and continue the fight. Many
of the older people remember how
Mr. and Mrs. Levi toiled and strui
gled in their early married life, and
how they mutually shared each
In 1856, when Clarendon was cut
off from Sumter, Mr. Levi moved to
Manning, and still with limited
means, for in Sumter his efforts ac
complished but a little more than a
living for his young family. He
founded a business which year by
year grew better, and with it his
credit grew stronger and as he was
about to enjoy his accummulations
from his hard fought struggles, the
rumblings of war began, then the
black clouds hovered over the land.
He had at this time established his
business upon a firm footing and was
regarded by the business world a safe
merchant. Then came the call to
arms and he respoaded for duty.
The Sprott Guards was formed and
he entered the army with it, leaving
his young wife with his little chil
dren to manage affairs while he was
at the front to fight for his adopted
country. His company was a part
of the 53rd Regiment commanded by
Colonel Harry L. Benbow, and with
it he shared the privations and hard
ships of a true soldier, and no great
er mark of esteem can be won by
any man than the esteem of broth
ers in arms. All through the war,
from the time Mr. Levi ente -ed the
army until the rumblings of cannon
died away did he stay with his com
rades, and often it is said, he exposed
himself unnecessarily to danger. His
Colonel relates an incident, which
showed the bravery and devotion of
the man. Mr. Levi had obtained
a furlough for a number of days to
go home on a visit, and he went,and
before the furlough was out, the
command, while in a very hot fight,
death missles were flying through
the air like rain, the shrieks of the
wounded and the groans of the dy
ing could be heard above the din of
battle, a. hand was placed upon the
Colonel's stirrup, and as he looked
to see the cause, there was Mr. Levi
begging for a gun, that he might
join the fray. The Colonel expressed
his surprise at seeing him there, and
ordered him to the rear, where he
would be out of danger, but the or
der was disobeyed and the soldier
pleaded with his commander to let
him fight. He was given a gun and
he entered the battle with a bound
ing heart. The writer wishes that
he could recall the many incidents
he has heard related by Mr. Levi's
comrades, and he would go to th~e
trouble to gather them for this
sketch were he not pressed for time
with his Senatorial duties.
The soldiers of Co. L., 23rd Regi
ment, knew Moses Levi, and when
ever they spoke of him it was in
words of love and esteem. Levi was
a man, a soldier, and a comrade with
a heart that knew no selfishness.
He was taken prisoner at the battle
of Five Forks and taken to Point
Lookout, where the material of his
composition showed itself. There in
that prison, deprived of his liberty
with some of his comrades, he suf
fered such as only those who had like
experience can appreciate. His na
ture revolted at being idle and by
some means he caught the ear of an
official, and through him he man
aged to communicate with relatives
at the North and in this way he
managed to procure some things
that he might employ the natural
trend of his mind and at the same
time contribute towards relieving the
sufferings of his fellow-prisoners. He
opened a store in prison and em
employed as his clerks W. H. Ep
person and WV. H. Cole, at a salary of
a plug of tobacco per week, and in
this way he made a sufficient amount
of money to buy things for himself
and comrades that prison regula
tions would not give, and he also
was enabled to send help to Colonel
Benbow, who was a prisoner and in
a hospital at Washington.
While Mr. Levi was in service, his
folks at home, on account of there
being no transportation, had accum
mulated a considerable quantity of
cotton and when Potter's army
came through the cotton was de
stroyed by the torches of the enemy,
and when the Confederacy furled its
flag, and General Lee sheathed his
sword, Mr. Levi came home to find
that his business was gone, property
destroyed and a new beginning of
life was his task.
The people were impoverished by
the fatal struggle, fortunes had
melted away and everything was
in a demoralized condition. He gath
ered himself together to face the
new conditions, and instead of sit
ting down to grieve of his losses, he
brushed aside the past, as if it were
a dream, and re-entered that battle
where brain, pluck and energy, in
stead of powder and lead are the re
quisites to master and accomplish
results. Was Moses Levi a soldier
in the battle of powder and lead?
Then he proved himself to be a Gien
eral in the battle of brain, pluck and
energy. In this battle he was what
Napoleon and others were to the
soldier; what Washington and Lin
coln and others were to State; what
Claflin, Stewart and others were to
commerce. They fought in their
respective callings and they reached
the goal of their ambitions. Moses
Levi battled and struggled and he,
too, reached the goal of his ambition.
This he did after being repulsed
numerous times. In the general run
of his business, although he met
many losses, he overbalanced them
with greater gains, but in a business
battle unexpected causes often dash
a man's hopes to the ground, and if
he is not courageous he will go with
them. About the time in his career
that he began to feel that his busi
ness would be able to withstand all
opposing forces, he was persuaded
to endorse for a large amount of
money, and as is the inevitable re
sult, he had to make his endorse
ment good by paying the debt, an~d
as trouble never comes singly, this
was followed by a fire which piled
loss upon loss. This fire almost broke
his spirit, and had he not been pos
sessed of an iron will and an ambi
tion which never learned the word
fail, he would have given up. At
that time Moses Levi was Claren
don's prop. He drove the people
from lementing over their piles of
ruin and started them off into the
new order of things. He looked af
ter and supplied their wants, and
with the magnfic-ient credit that his
integrity and perseverance built, lie
was Clarendon's benefactor. The
widow with her infant upon her
knee felt the heneficence of this man;:
the old soldier, broken down in
health and fortune, was propp~ed up
by thi man; theornha n with noth
ing went to this man for aid, and
was not turned away: the bride and
groom were given a helping hand to
start their battle of life by this man;
the sick and distressed felt the warin
hand and big heart of this man; we
could go on and enumerate. To-day
Iany, many appreciative hearts
will gaze about their surroundings
and say what we have said is true;
yes, from those gracious hearts will
spring into many eyes tears of love
and appreciation of the man now
resting in peace.
Moses Levi was a man and had his
faults,as other ien,but his good traits
rise to mountain proportions com
pared to his weaknesses and
frailties. He was the explorer
and counselor of his own
fortune. He regarded contracts,
written or oral, as things sacred. His
honesty and energy gained for him
all the credit he wanted for his oper
ations. Moses Levi was a man thor
oughly familiar with imen, having
been poor himself; lie sympathized
with the poor, and where one showed
an independent spirit with a desire
to work and be honest, he could al
ways count upon aid and encourage
ment from him.
Mr. Levi was not without ambition, but
his ambit:on was to lead in his line. He
took a lively interest in public affairs and
in 1876, when the State was endeavoring
to shake off the Radical yoke, he lent his
aid and means for the work. His services
were so aupreciated that when we got into
possession of the government, he was
urged to permit his name to be placed on
the ticket for the Legislature, but he re
fused. He was several times Intendant of
the town and on the board of Wardens, and
in the troublons days of '76, the town was
fnll of drunken negroes attending a Ile
publican meeting and they had listened to
incendiary speeches 'till they became an
noying to the citizens; Warden Levi de
manded that they respect the law, where
upon one of the leaders struck him, and
n a twinkling, a ball from Mr. Levi's pis
tl entered the fellow's body, for his in
solence. Excitement ran high and a riot
was imminent, and the news spread out
into the country and before daylight the
town was full of men, who had stood
shoulder to shoulder with Mr. Levi on the
bloody fields of Virginia, and they came to
protect him with their lives~all through the
exciting ordeal he was cool and really pre
vented his friends from precipitating a
He leaves, besides his widow, the fol
David Levi, of St. Paul; Mrs. Rosa Wein
berg, of Manning; Mitchell and Ferdinand,
Levi, of Sumter; Mrs. Ellen Iseman, Spar
tanburg; Meyer Levi, of Rutherfordton, N.
C.; Mrs. Sallie D'Ancona, of Chicago, Ill.,
and Abe and Louis Levi, of Manning. The
only loss by death the family have ever
experienced belore, was an infant son
about twenty-seven years ago.
Mr. Levi was thoroughly wedded to his
business and the nice fortune amassed by
him speaks for his success. He was an
indulgent parent, and it was his pride to
provide well for the comfort and happiness
of his family; they have never known de
nial from him. In business he was exact
ing to the cent, and away from his busi
ness, there never lived a more liberal and
genial soul. In his home be was princely
in his hospitalities, and in it be was a king
who ruled with love and affection. We
would, were we able to do so, like to write
a more elaborate sketch of his life, because
the man had many characteristics which
would be well for our young men to imitate.
He was a good citizen always ready to aid
in projects for the upbuilding of the com
munity. He was made a Mason in Sum
ter over forty years ago, and although he
was one of the founders of St. Petars Lodge
and was voted a life meniberehip, he clung
to his mother lodge. Mr. Levi was also a
member of the Knights of Pythias, and
while in his latter years he did not attend
meetings, he always took an interest in
the welfare of the lodges.
The news of his death brought to Man
ning many friends to show their respect,
and on Friday morning the body was taken
to Sumter, escorted by Masons and Knights
and was met at the depot on arrival, by
Claremont Lodge. The body was laid away
to rest in the Jewish Cemetery.
Mrs. Wyman of Philadelphia, a sister,
and Mrs. D'Ancona, a daughter, arrived too
late to see him alive.
Mr. Levi's estate is a large one, consist
ing of many tracts of land, bank stock atnd
other investments, besides his store and
accounts. His life was insured for about
50,000, and he owed very little money.
He left a will; besides providing for his
family, he made a bequest to Mr. M. Ja
abs and bequeathed to Mr. J. Taylor

The Graded School Question.
Editor THE TDgEs:
I hive been gratified at seeing some ex
pressions of yours in THE TmiEs recently
advocaiting a graded school for Manning.
O all towns with which I am acquainted
without such an institutioni know of no
one nore in nieed oif sneh or in a better
condition for inaugurating one. Two ef
forts heretofore have been made in that di
rection, but failed, either through some
slight technicality in the law or the luke
warmness of its advocates. Very few who
were approached on that subject failed to
sign the petition or express their approval,
but failed to talk for it and failed to work
for it, both of which are veiy essential in
pushing any eLterprise to a successful ter
miunation. It is not enough to say, "Oh.
yes, it's a good thing, I am in favor of it,"
aid then stop.
Ten years ago the citizens of the town
went to work with coiueinndabie enterprise
ind built the Manning Collegiate Institute.
That was a long step forward, but lacked a
little more at the time to crown those noble
efforts with coiplete succs,. Ailebt com
paratively small as contracted, for which
the trustes were at first responsibi, bat
which nas later placi i;pon the property
by the stockholders, thus relieving the
trustees. These facts are fresh in your
memory-how the debt rolled up until the
property was sold to meet the indebtedness
-how it was bought in by the present
owners-how efforts were made to reorgan
ize, etc. The result has been that for the
past two years the principal of the school
hai had to lease the property and assume
This state of affairs is very undesirable
thut a town the size of Manning cannot lay
caim upon a single piece of school prop
erty as its own. Even further, the county
which fosters education and provides suit
able (?) school houses in the various dis
tricts doesn't possess a school building for
whites within the corporate limits of the
town-a town of 1,500 inhabitants. Just
think of the condition, fellow-citizens, and
bestir yourselves for a better condition of
No one qnestions the value of an educa
tion, but are the best things being done to
wards securing it? Private schools will do
very well in some respects, but are they
or will they be adequate to meet the de
mands of the present as well as the fu
ture? The Institute has enjoyed a good
patronage, but can the school continue the
work brdened as it is with the conditions
set forth above? It is -only a question of
time as to how long the school will continue
as such. Can the other private schools,
which are full already, accommodate the
ones now taught at the Institute. If they
can, are the people of this town satisfied to
continue even as at present? Something
should be done and done quickly to give
the people a school founded upon some
thing more substantial than a fluctuating
private patronage. The present conditions
are not conducive to the best work possible
and I make this appeal to you in the hope
that some movement may be set on foot
which will place our educational advan
tages on a firmer basis.
