Last Saturday night some misereant
litted some of the town street lamps from
their posts, emptied the oil and threw one
of the lamps into a lot belonging to Mrs.
M1. M1. David. Whether the:' stole the oil
for incendiary purposes we do net know,
but the town is entirely unprotected at
night, except on Boyce street, where the
police usually guard. There is absolutely
no protection two hundred yards from the
court house and the property of citizens is

One of the first official acts performed Iy
Governor Ellerbe after his return to Co

of a pardon to Cornelia Bryait, a white
woman servintg sentence in the county jail.
The first effo.t to induce the Governor to
pardon this woman failed, but believing
the case warranted a resort to every proper
means to secure her release, another ef
fort was made; the second time the j-il
physician gave a certificate as to her condi
tion and Rev. P. B. Wells wrot" a strong
letter. On Wednesday night a tele;gram
was received 1- the writer from the Gover
nor's private secretary, notifying him of
the pardon. He at once went to the j1l
and gave the unfoitunate woman the in
formation which she received with tvi
dences of gratitude The next day Sheriff
Bradham released her and she went di
rectly in the country to her mother.
The ancients believed that rheumatism
was the work of a demon within a man.
Nv one who has had an attack of seintic
or inflammatory rheumatism will agree
that the infliction is demoniac enough to
warrant the belief. It has never been
claimed that Chamberlain's Pain Bau
would cast out demons, but it will cure
rheumatism, and hundreds bear testimony
to the truth of this statement. One appli
cation relieves the pain and this quick re

A Chaingang Break Through Careless
In our last issue we denied the rumor of
the escape of Bill Dixon from the chain
gang, and our denial was correct, but the
very next morning. last Thursday, the
community was astounded to learn for a
flct that at about 4 o'clock Bill Dixon and
Bill Davis had actually made good an es
cape, and It what we can learn is true the
guards in charge of them are guilty of crim
inal carelessness. Supervisor Owens miinst
have been convinced of this. because he
has employed Messrs. Beauregard Harvin
and James H. Wmrdham to take their
The report that reached THE TIMES is as
follows: On Wednesday night when the
prisoners were put up, the usual examina
tion was made, and the prisoners were se
curely locked up. About 4 o'clock the next
morning the guards remained in their
bunks and sent a "trdsty" to put a tub of
water into the eage for the prisoners to
wash. When the "trusty" opened the door
Dixon and Davis emptied the tub in his
face and rushed on to liberty. After they
bad gotten away the guards came from
tbeir beds and tired into space. None of
the .ther prisoners attempted to get away,
and it is not known how the "escapes"
managed to get their shackles cut loose, un
less they filed them apart during a rain
which occurred in the night. Supervisor
Owens was notified of the escape by a
"trusty" who was sent to him by the
uards. It seems that these "trusties" are
given about as much latitude as if they
were employees and not prisoners.
A reward was recently paid for the cap
ture of Dixon ar:d now we uaderstand that
a reward is offered for him and his com
panion. O course the taxpayers are
charged up with these rewards and we can
find no law for it. Nevertheless, law or no
law, rewards axe paid out of the taxes, and
all because men who are put in charge of
prisoners and get pay for their work, per
mit "trusties" to do their work for them.
This last escape is so flagrantly careless
that we do not believe, if a reward is paid
for the capture of the prisoners, that it
should be paid out of the pubhc treasury,
but let it be paid by those who accept the
responsibility and pay. There are times
when escapes occur and a reward should be
paid out of the treasury for the capture.
but those escapes are only when proper
precautions have been taken by the officials
and they could not help it. In this case
they are parties to the escape, by the fact
that they eutrusted a priscner to do that
which the county was paying them to do.
Bill Dixon and Bill Davis are out, and
as a consequence, devilinent has begun
and no doubt will continue until they are
placed beyond the reach of devilment; it is
either themi or others operating in their
name. Last Friday night a visit was paid
to the Central nctel, and from the safe in
the back piazza was taken a ham, two
chickens, some beef, bread and milk. The
robbers were not in a hurry, for signs
were seen the next morning where they
took their time to partake of the tempting
refreshmetnts; they carried off their booty
in a picnic basket belonging to one of the
Saturday night about 1 o'clock Mr. Louis
Levi was sitting out on the corner talking
to Policeman Huggins when he heard a
noise in the old store lot. Running over
and mounting the fence he saw two figures
making a hasty retreat from the side of the
store. H~e was unarmed and could do
nothing more than give the alarm. An
examination of the piemises showed where
tey had placed a ladder up to one of the
side lights and nad a piece of an old scale
in the fence corner, where, it is supposed,
that one was to be placed to ,Tatch while
the other miade the entry. Mr. Levi's ar
rival frustrated the plan. It was also
found where they had eaten supper; bread
crumbs and a piece of paper was found
wich smelled of cooked ham and a 10 cent
piece was picked up in the same place.
The scamps were determined to steal
something that night. Isiael James heard
a noise about bis stable and he got his gun
and fired in tae direction of the noise. He
heard two persons running, and afterwards
found two barefooted tracks, similar to
those seen in the Levi lot.
On Sunday night an entrance was wade
in the house of Leah Wragg and a lot of
rations was stolen; crossing the street,
they got into John Boyd's house and stole
a pair of pants. These many depredations
have aroused our citizens and if vigilance
can catch them they will be caught.
A sack of clothing was found last Mon
day under a bridge by the academy. On
examination it was found to contain a
boy's coat very similar to One that used to
be worn by a beef carrier by the name of
James and whose sister married Bill Davis,
a ladies' black skirt, supposed to have been
sto!ci from the hotel, some shackles and
one suit of convict's garb.
A note addressed to the writer was found
in the postoffice purporting to come from
Dixon and Davis making vain-glorious
boasts and threats, but we place no faith in
it, believing it to be the work of some hu
morist who wanted to see some fun.

We 31ust. Have a Good School.
Are we to have a graded school? Last
Inday afternoon a meeting was held in the
court house to informally discuss the above
question. Captain D. J. Bradham was
called to the cflair, and Prof. E. J. Browne
was made Secretary. The chairman made
a ittle talk and seemed moal, interested
and anxious to have the people devise some
means by which this town would better its
school faeiltiet. W. C. Dultant, Esq., who
had looked into the le-ai aspect of the ques
tio, was called upon and he explained the
lav and the manner in which we must pro
ceed to cowmply with the law.
After sombe discussion all pointing to
the same end in view, that is. those pre
sent favored the proposed graded school
project, it was decided to form a special
school district of aa area consisting of twvo
and one halt miles in each direction from
Manning with the exception of the north
era side, and Black River to be the north

D. J. Brad'bam, J. II. Rigby and WV. C.

As if some of our competitors are puzzled to know how it is that we
can sell our goods so cheap. They seem to think that we are selling our
goods at cost. There is nothing like knowing where to buy goods and how
to buy them. The time is past when a man can use all kinds of "booby"
talk to sell goods. What the people want nowadays is a man to deal not in
talking and running down others and putting all kinds of small tricks to
get the trade, but they want goods at the lowest possible price, and the
is the place to get them. Our trade is increasing daily, and you know we
must be selling goods cheap, and we certainly do appreciate the liberal
patronage of the people of Clarendon County.
Is more than double that of last season. The people are now beginning to
see how high they have been paying for this line of goods. We sell our
goods out at from 5 to 25 per cent. profit and we replenish every week.
Old-time methods will suit old-time people, but in this day of enter
prise and progress to keep up with the procession you must GET OUT OF
THE RUT and employ modern methods; you must underbuy your compet
itor before you can undersell him, and that is what we are doing daily.
We rush out our goods and do not put them away in some hole or shelf
and hold them for from 50 150 per cent. profit.
We cannot boast of being a Clarendon man and being home here, but
we do boast of selling goods cheaper and giving you better values than any
Clarendon, Sumter, Williamsburg or any other man from any county in
this or any other State in the Union. We are in a position to do so.
The time has come when you must look out for yourself ; your friends
are not going to give you anything or make a living for you, though I
think we have some very good friends here in this town and county.
Should we ever leave this town or State we will forever have a New
York Racket Store with eleven million dollars worth of goods in New York
to select from.
We Will Not be Undersold by Any Man.
We have a lot of bargains for this week again.
