with Mr. W. Scott Harvin, proprietor of the
Manning Hosiery Mill, to handle the pro

close prices.

wanted a bottle of liquor to run him and

if he could have found a blind tiger here
he would not have patronized the dispen

The new tobacco warehouse is almost
ready for business, and the old one is hav
ing a new roof put on it. With two ware
houses in Manning we see no reason why
this town should not have sufficient in
dc.ments to bring Clsrendon's tobacco
crop here. The whole thing depends upon
the management, if those in cherge of th'
warehouses put forward the proper effoi -
they will bring the tobacco here, and if
they will give full market prices they will
keep it here; all that the growers want
is fair treatment, and this we are atisfied
they will receive in Manning.
Last fall I spraisaed my left hip while
handling some heavy boxes. The doctor I
called on said at ti:5t it was a slight strain
and would soon be well, but it grew worse
and the doctor then said I had rheumatism.
It continued to grow worse and I could
hardly get around to work. I went to a
drug store and the druggist recommended
me to try Chamberlain's Pain Balm. I
tried it and one-hzalf of a 50-cent bottle
cured me entirely. I now recommend it
to all my friends.--F. A. Babcock, Erie, Pa.

amount of perspiration it must have taken
to get up such a wonder inspiring adver
tisemenit as his whole page supplement
signify's. Look at the prices he offer. and
it is enough to induce a man to s.ell the
cast off garments of his mother-in-aw to
raise the "mezuma" to take advantage of
Kendall's bargains. Somnething is going'
to drop about the Racket store, because
when you see a mana throw away his fan
these ~hot days, and roll up his sleeve to
work night rnu dnay to mark cut prices on
his goods, and without fear and trembling
take a page in his county newspaper to let
its readers know that he means to get rid of
his summer goods, and to do so, the prices
are slaughtered, the bottom is about to d rop
out; all the people have to do is to stand
by to catch things as they come tumbling
down. Kenniall is going to the northern
markt to buyhn his fall goods, and before
he leaves he proposes to clear out his im
mense stock at price-. a glance at his ad
vertisement will astound any bo.ly who is
posted on prices. Some merchants claim
it is not legitimate to slash prices, but
Kendall claims that he came to Manning
and instituted new methods in the nature
of out prices and he proposes to be the
judge of what is a 1gitim-ite method to get
clear of a summer stock when he wants to
get ready for a fall stock. He says that he
Cannot afford to keep his goods to feed

Would not Suffer so A.-ain for Fifty
Times Its Price.
I awoke last night with severe pains in
my stomaei. I never felt so badly in all
my life When I came down to work this
morning I felt so weak I could hardly
work. I went to Miller & McCurdy's drug
store and thcv recommended Chamber

fixed m) all right. It certainly is the finest
thing I ever used fir stomach trouble. I

sufferings of last night again for fifty times

Every Voter Must Vote.
The trustees of school district number 9.
or better known as "Manning district"
have ordered a special election, a notice of
which Is published elsewhere, for the pur
pose of confirming the action of the meeting
of the free holders held in the court house
on May 30th, when it was declared by a
vote of 14 to 60 that a special district shall
be formed, and a special levy of four mills
be made to maintain a graded school
in the town of Manning. Under the law
a vote of the analified voters must be had
confirming sa'id action before the same is
legalized. This vote will be taken on next
Wednesday, polls opening at 7 o'clock A.
M. and will close at 4 o'clock P. M. It
should not be necessary for us to arouse
the people to the duty they owe in this
matter, nor would we do more than to re
mind thei of the date, and hours of the
election, were it not for the fact, that the
trustees will provide a separate box for the
voters to express their preference on the
subject of trustees. We regard the seleo
tion of the board of trustees a most im
portant step, and every man selected
should feel highly honored, because it is
an expression of confidence from the peo
p!? of the community who know him best.
When the people of a community by their
ballots select men to take charge of the men
tal training of their children, it is a confi
dence expressed more to be appreciated
than political honors.
Taz Tzxxs has no axe to grind, nor
has it any special favorites for the posi
tion of trustee; what it wants is
the selection of men with a sufficient
amount of inteligence to be able to judge
of the qualifications of teachers, to be men
of broad and liberal minds, without politi
cal and religious prejudice, and have such
business ability as to be able to manage
the finances for the interests of the school.
Is would indeed, be a most unfortunate
beginning were the new school system to
get into the hands of "popular met," with
out the requisite qualifications to make good
trustees. The writer would vote against his
own brother were he not properly qualified
for the place, and would vote for a man he
did not speak to, if that man had the prop
er qualifications, in other words all per
sonal feeling and favoritism must be
sidetracked, and let reason guide the
voter is his selection of men to gov
ern the school. A man without busi
ness ability is not the proper person for the
place, one who is lacking in moral charac
ier is unnft and would prove an obstruction;
one who is so narrow that he sees no good to
be derived from outside of his own religious
reed or denomination, should be avoided;
because, his narrowness of mind would
tend to offend, and engender controversies
and sooner or later disrupt the institution.
It must be borne in mind that the trus
tees to be selected are to select t->achers
and to make rules for the government of
the children who attend the school;
the position is not only very important btt
a delicate one; there is only one mo
tive to prompt a man to accept, that is the
pious duty he owes mankind; it is as much
his duty to aid his people to become edu
ated as it is his duty to foster religion, for
the one must necessarily be the co-worker
of the other. We have in mind men whom
we believe would make a fine board, be
ause we believe they have the qualifica
tions already mentioned, and will take the
liberty to mention their names, with the
distinct understanding that it is without
their knowledge or consent, and without
disparagement to any others who may be
mentioned or fhouight of. The gentle
men whom we have selected as our
personal choice are Major Abe Levi,
Dr. J. Frank Geiger and Mr. E. L.
Wilkins; this is, in our opinion, a board
possessing the intellectual, moral and bus
iness ability, and their names are not men
tioned in a spirit of dictation, but more
from a desire to put the people to think
ing. Next Wednesday is the day, and
every man entitledi to vote cannot perform
a more important duty than by laying aside
every other duty,and attending to this one.

Dr M A Simmons' liver medicine has a
national icputation, extending over about
sixty years, as a most succesful liver regu
McLauiin at Wefford.
United States Senator John L McLau
rin delivered an address at the Wofford
commUencemeut which will set the politi
cians on him with vengeance, and when
the popular feeling is considere.1, his ut
terances not being in full accord with pub
lie sentiment, is proof conclusive that Mc
Laurin is a man of individnal ideas with
the bravery to express them, regardless of
consequences. If MeLaurin was a politi
cal trimmer, looking out for office, he would
join in the popular clamor and receive the
applause of those who are opposed to ex
pansion. but he prefers being a student of
Statecraft and leave the art of demagogery
to others. The following is a synopsis of
his speech taken from the Spaitanburg
Ilerald:
Senator McLaurin delivered one of the
finest efforts that has been heard for a long
time in Wofford chapel. His audience was
attentive and appreciative, for the message
he brought was worthy of it. The Senator
gained many friends in the city by his elo
quent address, and his visit will be remea
bered with pleasure.
He thanked the two literary societies for
the honor they had conferred upon him,
and hoped they would be charitable in
their judgment, succeeding as he did so
many estimable men on that platform.
Then in a few well-chosen words he paid
beautiful tributes to Calhoun and Preston,
the pure statesman and the unrivalled ora
tor. In speaking of them he said that the
statesman and orator are never the pro
duct of despotism, but are the incarnation
of the genius of patriotism.
He spoke then of our high civilization,
how we have advanced to it, its dangers,
its great responsibilities and its obliga
tions. Civilization seems nothing but the
unfolding of God's plans for the human
race, and history is but the epitome of these
plans.
A stable civilization must make great
moral progress as well as intellectual and
poltical, and it takes ages to produce it.
Egypt, Syria, Rome and Greece had noth
ing but the civilization of the ages behind
them and they lacked the most important
element, moral progress, and so passed
away.
How can the dark ag-s which succeeded
these nations' decay be accounted for? It
seems that the divine ruler meant to roll
back the progress then, for the great civIli
zation of the nineteenth century, as effect
ed by the Christian religion, which at that
ti . e was hailed by a bewildered race. It
is a question whether our civilization could
have been evolved from the civilization of
the ancient nations.
There is a remarkable connection be
tween the progress of civilization and re
ligion. The Puritans stood for both civil
and religious liberty; the Wesleyan refor
mation not only caused religious liberty,
but gave us democracy.
The speaker then told of Washington
and Lincoln praying to God after battle.
This official recognition of the God of bat
tle illustrates the rule of God over our
country.
He said the present was a time of tre
mendous transition, and the nations which
did not keep abreast of the time would be
certainly overwhelmed. Science has made
great progress, but that enchanted land is
only half-known.
We cannot peer into the future and it is
useless to speculate, but it is safe to say
that the twentieth century will be as great
a improvement on the nineteenth, as the
nineteenth was on the eighteenth.
America has lead in the progress of the
nations and will continue to do so. The
most potent factor in effecting this is the
common school system of education; the
diffusion of general intelligence. Our ed
noational level is above that of any other
nation. The Senator then took an instance
of our superiority the late war with Spain,
the illiteracy of Spain being 68 per cent.,
U~nited States, 7 per cent. He said some
one had made the statement that it was the
man behind the gun who won the war; it
was more, it was the common school behiad
that man.
America not only leads In scienee and
industrial development, but also in the scI
ence of government: in new pnineiples and
new forms of government.
The speaker then reviewed shortly the
political growth of our government; how
happily the banners of Spain and France,
the countries of tyranny and despotism
were driven out: how the persecuted and
oppressed of other nations made the land
of power, and established a government of
freedom; how many crises had been safely
passed through...
In speaking of the crisis of the civil war,
a unique struggle in history, the Senator
said, ''The right of the Caucassian to gov
ern came from God. Race instinct has pre
served and is preserving the South; this is
a white man's country and a white man's
government."
He said that our country would never be
injured by outside forces, but from those
within. One of the most dangerous of
those just now is the American trust, which
had taken for its motto what the Delphic
oracle told Philip of Macedon, "Make coin
thy watchword, and you will win all-" But
this modern form of evil will be counter
acted as feudalism was by the crusades, or
overthrown as the doctrine of the divine
right of kings was overthrown by Crom
wei. When they become unbearable,
trusts will be governed by public laws.
There have been two great crises in Eng
lish history which differently settled,would
have changed the history of the world, the
battles of Hastings and Waterloo. We are
rapidly approaching another crisis. Napo
leon said before his death that the next
hundred years would see the world Cossack
or epublican.
To this crisis there is no compromise;
there must be either the one, ignorance,
Romanism, bigotry. or the other, intelli
gence, Protestantism, freedom.
The Anglo-Saxon race has led for uni
versal freedom. The question is, will our
nation, the sponsor of a Christian civiliza
tion shrink from the obligation imposed
upon humanity of helping other nations to
freedom, after having gained its own?
But what are oer obligations? One of
hese is to preserve th? fr:.a institutions so
that future ages may enjoy them. i'his
responsibility will soon rest upon the
young men, and they should fit themselves
for it by education; the highest civil virtue
is the result of education. There are no
born statesmen; they are the product of cir
cumstanes, great ambition and consum
ing patriotism.
Another obligation is to seek for the bet
terment and elevation of all the human
race through establishment of political in
ttutios5 and the enlightening influence
of our Christian civilization. One of the
best means we have to establish this is
through commerce.
This country has met one of its respon
sibilities when it established a land of free
dom in America; it met another responsi
bility in established free public institu
ions: it meets another responsibility in
the question of' extending our borders.
In the East there is to be a last final
struggle between the two forces, freedom
and despotism. The czar has proposed
disarmament, but he has plans for the en
slavement of the East and tne expulsion of
England. The time for disarmament will
ot come until the designs of God have
been fulflled; so we should prepare our
selves for the struggle of universal freedom.
The late war was for humanity. So
president and congress say, and not for
conquest. Cuba and the Philippines are
o our hands as a sacred trust; let us use
tem in giving to the world an answer to
how to govern; to establish freedom; and
to elevate their population and magnify
our nation in the eyes of the world.
The events of '98 have been pregnant.
We have taken our place among the fore
most nations of the world, and must now
assist in deciding the questions of the
We cannot afford to shrink from our
.Istin. '[he Hebrew nation was recre
ant to hr responsibilities, and it was scat
tered throughout the earth.
Ve have a divinely appointed task, which
we are fulfilling; wherever the American
ciiizationi has gone, it has fructified the
nition and established political and re
ligious liberty. T1he statesmen who deny
this task, this obligation is a demagogue,
and the Christian who does so is a trai
tor to his God and to his religion.

tiyeerin and Foreordinationl.
A glycerin man in conversation with
a reporter the other day said that the
majority of those who are engaged in
the business of shooting wells believe
in foreordination. "I think that a man
will not die till his time comes," he
said. "A man is liable to die at any
calling, no matter how safe it may be
considered. He will pass through all
kinds of dangers and never sustain the
slightest injury. Then he is knocked
out of existence when he least expects it.
"Glycerin men have to be quite
nervy, but there is not one cf them who
does not feel that he is in no great dan
ger. They think they will live out their
allotted time and will not be blown up
until the predestined event is due. We
are handling death every day and know
it, but by the exercise of caution and
common sense there are but few of us
comparatively that are killed. The rail
road men are much more liable to acci
dental death than glycerin men are."

An ex-sea captain, now living in Syd
ney, many years ago was in charge of a
ship carrying some convicts. The con
victs mutinied, murdered the crew and
ordered the captain to navigate them to
the islands, and, being a prudent man,
he did so. When satisfied as to their
course, the convicts deliberated, decided
that he had behaved himself well and
put him ashore on the first large island
they came to. He was a musician and
took his violin with him. A threatening
crowd of savages greeted his arrival,
but Orpheus played to them till they
thought him a god, brought him unlim
ited pigs and yams and bowed in adora
tion. Finally he married the chief's
daughter, succeeded him and ruled the
island for years, till a ship called in and
he sailed away-Sydney Bulletin.

Asthma From Asparagus.
Among the curiosities of medical lit
rature are the stories, many of them
well authenticated, of the peculiar sus

viduals to certain odors and emanations.
Among the substances which have been
kown to have produced attacks of
spasmodic asthma are roses, musk, tea,
ipecacuanha, the odor of a cat, fried
ish, the dust of oats, malt, rice, feath
ers, wool and that caused in the demoli
tion of old houses. Dr. Eugene Do
