Last Saturday afternoon about 4 o'clockI
Constable Sam T. Tobias breathed his last,
and with that last breath went out the life
of as brave and daring a n an as ever -
dertook to execute the law's mandate. be
deceased was 46 years of age and leaves a
wife and four children, the eldest of whom
is the wife of Clerk of Court J. H. Tiu
nmons. There is a grown single daughter
and two small children. The family sup
port was taken.
The funeral took place Sunday morning
at Oak Grove church, and it was attended
by an immense throng of sorrowing rela
tives and friends; among the latter were
o:cials and professional men, all of whom
ad a hiah regard for the deceased. It was
a sad, sad funeral. Rev. P. . Vells con
ducted the service, an.1 when the body was
tken from the church and the coffin open
ed at the grave many stout hearts gave
way, and from the eyes of strong men
aine tears. It was one of the saddest
sights the writer has ever beheld. 'The old
mother, bent with the age of three score
and ten years, came and knelt down and
ooked into the face of her beloved son, and
hoked w'ith grief, the poor old soul could
not tind relief in tears. The wife whose
eart was being eaten out with grief,look ed
for the last time upon the lace of the man
she promised at the altar to obey and
onor, the father of her children, the
prop to her life; the children with their laist
farewell looked upon "papa's" face. The
riends of his boyhood, his business a'nd
social associates, all looked upon bin :or
the last time on this earth, and then the
coffin wxas lowered into the grave and the
last resting place of a brave and true man
was covered with fiowers.
Was this an unusual assemblage to pay
the last tribute of respect to neighbor and
riend? Yes; there was not a man in that
vast assemblage who did not have a feeling
to avenge the death of Sam Tobias, and his
death will be avenged. Fortunately we
ave a law-abiding and just community;4
there is no disposition to wvreak vengeance
upon innocent people as has been under
similar circumstances,done in other States.4

Sons of Confederate Teterans.
Ellitor THE TiMES:
Please allow us, through your pa
per, to make a call to the sons of
Confederate veterans in Clarendon.
In almost every county in the State
the sons of veterans have organized
, camp to perpetuate the memories
-)f their fathers who fought for their
ountry in the war for Southern in
dependence. We should have done
3o long ago, but inasmuch as we have
not, it is not yet too late, and we call
upon every young man in the county
>ver 16 years of age whose father or
zrandfather served in the war until
its close or was honorably transfer
red or discharged, or was killed, to
meet in the court house at Manning
an Thursday, the 14th day of Sep
tember, at 11 o'clock, for the purpose
:>f forming a camp of Sons of Confed
rate Veterans. This includes all
ons or grandsons of those who were
in the Confederate service at the
-lose of the war, either in infantry,
:avalry or the navy.
It is only proper that we should
orm this organization. It will not
be many years before those who did
4ervice in that great struggle, one of
the greatest that was ever enacted in
the history of wars, will have passed
iway, and we as their descendants
hould keep bright the memories of
their noble services by forming an
>rganization which should last and
be handed down to coming genera
tions. That fraternal feeling which
as felt by our fathers in the great
truggle should be none the 'less felt
by us as their descendants, and let
s show our feeling by perpetuating
,he memories of a noble cause. We
iope to have several addresses from
)rominent Confederates on that day,
and all old Veterans are cordially in
ited to meet with us.
Let every son or grandson of a Con
ederate Veteran in Clarendon coun
y over 16 years old meet in the court
ouse on Thursday, September 14th,
ind let us have a good organization.

With such a condition of affairs, the business man is
put to his trumps to study out the most effectual way of
meeting the people and sharing their burdens, to remedy
the bad effects caused by any turn in affairs which op
crate adversely to the people. It is unnecessary to in
troduce nmyself to the readers of The Times, they know
me, and they know full well that my many years of ex
perience, both as a farmer and a merchant, give me a de
cided advantage over many others. I have used my ex
perience that it may count for the best interests of my
business. In doing this I had to study the needs and
and wants of my patrons, studying their condition as
well as their welfare, because upon their welfare de
pends my success. Every business man, to keep up
with the progressive spirit now pervading this country
must study the markets just as a lawyer or doctor must
study his books. This must be done or he cannot buy
his goods to meet competition.
I have made deals by which I can sell goods at prices
that cannot be duplicated anywhere, and I am going to
do it. A visit to my store will convince any buyer that
my immense stock has been selected with the greatest
care, and contains everything, that can be used in the
fanily, or on the plantation.
There is no store in this section of the State that has
a more varied assortment of Foreign and Domestic
Dress Goods, Notions, Fancy
Goods, Trimmings, Clothing,
Hats, Gents, FurnishingGoods,
Shoes, Hardware and Cutlery..
Sadlery, Harness, Crockery, Glassware, Wood and
Dress Making Department Up-Stairs,
My Grocery Department is thorough and complete; I buy direct by
the chr load from the best mills and packers. Sugars, Coffees, Teas,
and everything in the Grocery line in such quantities purchased to give
my patrons the advantage of wholesale figures and can save my pa
trons money. ' I am paying'all the market will permit for cotton and
in a position this year to make it advantageous for the people to bring
their cotton to Manning. I solicit a continuence of past favors.

UPS AND DOWNS.
Everybody has their "ups and downs," but ours are quite different
from all others, from a business standpoint. The quality of our Goods is
always UP and the prices DOWN, and away down below others.
Now to prove my statement. Right here in the beginning of the fall
season I am going to sell you
oods Cheaper Than You Have Ever Bought Them
From any retail concern in this State. I am in a position to do so.

my life, and I am going to give you the benefit of it. Come and see me
when you want anything and you can get some special
New York Bargains.
I guess you have heard BARGAINS, BARGAINS, so much until you
:onider it as only a by-word of ours, but, friends, you can sure get TRUE
VALUES at my store. Just ask any one that has visited my store sine
September 1st what we are doing with prices, and if they don't tell you
that our ups and downs are just as we say they are, then Il treat you.
I have bought too many goods to he holding them at from 50 to 100
per cent profit, and 10 and 121 per cent is all we want, and wve will depend
pon the volume of business for our profits.

Well, I need not mention anything about the Shoes, as everybody
that sees our stock declares they never saw such values, and often wonder
ow we can sell so cheap. The great secret is knowing where to buy them
and going and get them yourself, and above all, getting what the trade

how cheap we are selling Silk Front Shirts. Just think, a Silk Front
shirt for 49c, and a better one for 74c. We have some bargains in Plain
