opened last Monday with an enrollment of
about 170 sceolars. The principal, Mr. In

on accaunt of sickness. It is hoped that he

work of organizing fell upon Mr. Thack

Messrs. C. M. Mason and. J. P. Moore to
two orders at the store of Mr. J. W. Heriot.
One order was for $S1.50 and the other for
$.50. When Mr. Mason went to have a
settlement with Mr. Heriot he discovered
the forged orders and lost no time in hav

tried al th.e coming term of court.

Last Thursday was "opening day." at
Jenkinson's, and quite a crowd of ladies
went there to see the sights, and they saw
them. The store was nicely arranged with
beautiful millinery and dress goods, and
everything to attract the eyes and wishes of
the ladies; from quite early in the morn
ing until after sundown there was a con
stant stream ot people going in and coming
out of Jenkinson's and everybody was
pleased with the beautiful display of goods.

Kendall is not to be downed by "open

competitor to gain one step ahead of him,
as soon as he picked up last week's TinEs
and read where there was to be an opening
in town, he didn't do a thing but addressed
a lot of cards to customers in the country
and had an "opening" on Thursday too,
Kendall's millinery department was put in
holiday attire, and it had the effect of at
tracting a big crowd of ladies who were
iighly pleased with the new designs for
the coming seasons.

Another case of the careless -leaving of
poisons resulted in death last 'Thursday af
ternoon. Ben F. Jhekson, colored, living
about 2 miles east of Manning went off from
home with his wife picking cotton; they
left a 15 months old child in charge of a
six year old boy. While they were away
the boy got to rumaging about the house,
and finding a bottle on a shelf he concluded
i dose the child as he had seen its parents
do on severn! necasions. The bottle con
taned le.adanuum and the dose given to the
child resulted in death. A coroner's jury
was summoned anid they rendered a ver
dit in accordace with the facts stated.

On the People's Warehouse floors yester
was some tobacco that had been on the
floors at 'Timmonsville, the price at that
point was not satisfactory so the party
brought it to Manning and was well pleas

There is nothing like a good, clean, straight

the People's, every body is treated alike.
Mason has no favorites to give special
prices that they may drum in their sec

a fll and square price for his tobacco,

The B. F. Johnson Publishing Company
of Richmond, Va.. favored us with some
of their school books, which we have ex
amined and find them far superior to the
books in use heretofore in our schools.
They are beautifully printed and illnstrat
ed, and they are at least 25 per cent cheap
er than other books. We understand this
company has offered to take old books in
exchange without charge and we hope our
trustees will take advantage of the offer.
This company's histories are not sectional;
they do all sections justice, which is not
the case with a great miany histories. We

There is hardly a day but that somebody
reports having seen Bill Dixon the night
before, and yet Dixon manages to elude
those who are on the lookout for him. We
do not take any stock in the oft repeated
rumors about Dixon and believe he has left
these parts altogether. It would not sur
prise us if the alleged seeing of Dixon is
not for the purpose of putting on him dev
ilment that is being done by others. On
last Friday night Mr. D. M1. Bradham
caught Wilhae Fraser, a-colored boy hereto
fore bearing a good reputation, in his cow
stable. It was betwten U and 10 o'clock
and Mr. Bradham had just returned home
from Atlanta and was looking about his
premises, when he e-spied some one go
around has cow in the lot and drive her
into the stable and close the door. Mr.
B~radbam rushed up to the mnn, caught
hold of him, discovered who he was, and
brought him down and turned him over to
the police. Now had Mr. Bradham's cow
been taken, the theft would have been
pace on Diyon sure.
Did They Do It Z
One day last week a Mr. Oppenheimer,
traveling salesman for the firm of Fincken
& Jordan, grocers of Charleston, was in
town and verv evidently not pleased with
the progress that is being made by the
Manning Grocery Company, because, in a
conversation with Mr. Avant, manager for
the firm. Oppenheimer predicted the
early demise of our local wholesale grocery,
and then proceeded to inform Mr. Avant
that the wholesale grocery merchants of
Charleston, at a meeting, resolved to de
cline to sell the merchants of Manning un
less they first signed a written agreement
to bur from the Charleston merchants the
year round, and not turn their fall business
into the hands of local grocers.
Mr. Oppenheimer may or may not have
authority to make such an extraordinary
threat, but if he told the truth, that the
Charleston grocery men had resolved to re
qnire of our Manning merchants a written
agreement before selling them goods. then
we have lost all confidence in the business
judgment of Charle;ton's wholesale gro
cery dealers. It strikes us that Charles
ton has suffered enough already by the re
quirement to sign papers. We remember
when it was a common practice in that city
to require a written agreement to ship a
I certain number of bales of cotton and in
ease of failure to ship the required num
bvr. a commission was charged; it was this
that helped take away a good deal of the
cotton business from Charleston, and now
if Charleston's wholesale dealers propose
to tie our merchants with written agree
ments they will simply kill the goose that
laid the golden egg. The Manning mer
chants can and will buy where they please,
and certainly wherever they can save
money, as this is a day of competition, and
in order to keep up with the pro-ession
every cent must be saved.
If Mr. Oppenheimer has misrepresented
the Charleston business men, then it is but
simple justic-e t.) them that his threats
should be made known to them, that they
may know what manne- of man they are
sending ont to sell goods ir them. We
are well acquainted with a num'ar of East
Bay merchants, and we do not believe that
Mr. Oppenheimer does them justice; in
fact we honestly believe that such talk is a
great injustice to such an establishment as
the Carolina Grocery Company, a house
that we know is made up of business men
who do business on business principles.
The Carolina Grocery Company woul- not
care to do business with a merchant who
was not watching his business close enough
to keep abreast of th-e markets, and who
was not trying to save every cent possible,
for it is only those men who are abreast of
the times that settle promptly.
Several of our merchants were incensed
at the threat made by Mr. Oppenheimer,
and they did not hesitate to express their
entire independeLce of Charleston. In
fact some of our local merchants have about
as good or better commercial standing than
some of the East Bay merchants, and if
Charleston has resolved not to sell our mer
chants because they patronize the Manning
Grocery Cow pany and thereby save freight,
she can continue to stiek to her resolutions
and our merchants will continue doing
business at the same old stand, and buy
when and where they find the best induce
ments to buy goods, in spite of Charleston
or any other seaport town.
Oa the 10th of December, 1897, Rev. S.
A. Donhahoe, pastor M. E. Church, South,
Pt. Pleasant, W. Va., contracted a severe
cold which was attended from the begin
ning by violent coughing. He says: "After
resorting to a number of so called 'specifics,'
usually kept in the house, to no purpose,
I purchased a bottle of Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy, which acted like a charm. I most
cheeifully recommend it to the public."

Do not throw money away by buying a poorly made cane milL. We
sell the GOLDEN MILL, which is one of tihe best made. Why? Because
they are constructed of the very best material, and are made as cornp act
as possible to secure Strength, Durability and Easy Running, and their
capacity must not be judged by appearances, but determined by the size
1of the larger rolls which have greater diameter than in some mills with
larger exterior measurements.
They press the cane dry, as only strong mills compactly built and with
lathe-turned rolls will do. The gears are detachable from rolls, and with
improed relutch for thes p arts, tere can be no slipping.C, nsc h

They will not bend or break like iron, and will wear longer with less frie
Etion; they run in babbitted boxes which, when worn, can be renewed by
any machinist at a trifling cost. Steel shafts and babbitted'boxes produce
Ebut little friction, hence great durability and easy running. They are fit
ted with steel bolts and lock set-screws and other improvements suggested
by experiece necessary to the completion of a perfect Cane Mill.aemd
