There is an effort being made to interest
the tobacco growers of Salem to erect a
warehouse midway of the tobacco belt near
one of the tram roads, in order to have the
market nearer the fields and thus save
hauling. We do not believe the scheme
will work nor will it pay, for the reason
that it requires more than one section to
support a market which will be advantage
ous to the parties most interested. We arc'
satisfied that Manning can be, and will be,
one of the best markets in the State, and
we know it will if the growers will give

The attention of our readers is called to
te advertisemenct of M1r. W. E. Jenkinson
whose name is a household word in Clar
endon county. We would not know how
to begin were we to undertake to tell our
readers what Jenkinson has in his store
and what he proposes to do. Let it be
sufficient for us to say that he will carry an
unusually heavy fail and winter stock and
that he propose's to sell his goods. This of
course means that he snaps his fingers in
the face of opposition and defies competi
tion from whatever source. Jenkinson is
a merchant and his success proves his abil
Ity to rank among the best. Watch Jen
kinsot's advertisements this season and
he will keep you informed.

The council meets, makes a law and witho

without first having giveu full and fair no

Notice to Teachers.
Co the Teachers of Clarendon County:
I have been directed by the State Super
ntendent of Education to say to all teach
?rs in Clarendon county that the State
Board of Education has made it obligatory
pon all teachers to attend the County In
titute or Summer School; and unless they
:o attend their certificates cannot be re
ewed unless they can give some satisfac
ory excuse to the State Superintendent
>f Education for non-attendance. So it
will be seen that this power of renewing
eachers' ce rtificatcs, as heretofore vested
in the County Board of Education, has
been taken away.
The County Itstitute will convene in
Hanning on August 17th promptly at 9
'clock. We hope that a full attendance
:f teachers will meet us on the first day of
Co. Supt. of Education.
