The State Press Association is now
on its way to Cuba. We regret that
business engagemeits prevented THE
TimEs editor from being a member of
this party, and although our presence
is not with them, our heart is. and we
hope they will have a safe and a joyous
outing. It makes us feel real blue in
being disappointed about this trip.
The war which is now engaging Eng
land is about the- first real land war
which her soldiers have fought for
centuries. Heretofore she has hired
her fighting done and then took the
glory. Waterloo was won by the Ger
mans: Blenheim by the Italians, and
what few victories perched on Eng
land's banners ir. America were due to
the hired Hessians. and Wellington
and Marlborough took the glory. Now
England has to do her own fighting.and
if the reports are true she will win the
war. but no glory.
President Kruger. of the South Afri
can Republic and President Steyn, of
'the sister Republic. have jointly m-de
England an offer of peace, but England
has refused, claiming that the two Re
publics have abused their independence
to England's detriment. This simply
means that England has found out that
she can over power the South Afri
kanders and take their country. and
that she proposes to do so. We hope
that Russia and France will step in
now, and give England to understand
that her unholy war must cease.
We see from some of the up-country
newspapers that Senator W. N. Gray
don. of Abbeville. may become a candi
date for Solicitor of his circuit. and we
hope the report will not prove correct.
because he would be greatly missed
from the State Senate. Graydon is one
of the best law-makers in the State,
and although he is Abbeville's repre
sentative, should he go into another
field it would be a loss to the State. If,
however, he has decided to make the
race for Solicitor, we would advise the
p~eople of that circuit not to cast their
votes for Senator Graydon unless they
are seeking a man who will do his
full duty fearlessly and without favor
He knows the law and has the moral
courage to push and advocate the law.
He is a man of a high sense of honor
which qualifies him for so important
a trust. and if elected Solicitor he will
be such a prosecuting office that evil
doers will tremble at the mention of
It is intimated that the Prohibition
isits will have an early convention, and
take action to forestall the convention
to be held by the regular Democratic
organizaticn. We do not propose to
advise our Prohibition friends, but in
attempting to forestall the Democratic
party, they had hetter study the con
stitution and rules thoroughly. If our
memory serves us right, we have a rec
ollection of that factton assembling in
Columbia, perfecting an organization,
electing an executive committee and
making nominations for all of the State
offices. We also recollect that their
action was questioned, and the State
executive committee caused the Pro
hibitionists to pull down their ticket
as that party was separate and distinct.
and their action was in violation of the
rules of the Democratic party. We do
not think it was the intention of the
Prohibitionists to go outside, and they
were to a considerable extent mislead
by one of the Democratic committees.
But with their former experience, and
with the constitution and rules plain if
they do go outside of the party, the re
sponsibility of such a course must rest
with them. Prohibition in our opin
ion. would bring about a fearful con
dition in this State we believe, at the
same time we realize that a very large
number of good men hold contrary
views, and these men and their sincer
ity we respect, therefore, if they are
determined to inject the question again
into our politics, it is best for them to
comply strictly with the rules of the De

Editor The Manning Times:
It would take several issues to tell all
that I have seen and experienced since
my enlistment on Sept. 12th 1899. so
will cut it short, and only mention a
few of the most important events.
The 38th left Jefferson Barracks. 'Mo.,
on Oct. 20th, arrived at The Presidio.
Cal. Oct. 27th, remained in camp at the
latter place until 'ov. 20th. when we

the 37 days crossing the broad Pacific
and China Sea. We arrived at Hono

place I ever saw. much prettier than

same as Cuba, it is a "Heaven" com

than to every acre in the States, you

Talk about the Pacific being calm,
and free from storms that is all a dream,
although we encountered several heavy
seas we reached Manila Bay on the
evening of Dec. 26th, without any ac
cident or loss of life. The two trans
ports kept in sight most of the time.
for 15 days nothing was seen, but the
blue waves, the sun, moon and stars.
My company was in luck. Headquarters
was on board the St Paul, so of course
we had music to pass away the long
dreary hours spent out at sea. at night
the boys would remain on top deck un
til taps. singing songs, cracking jokes,
thinking of loved ones.sweethearts. etc.,
left behind and talking about how many
Filipino's we expected to kill if the war
was not over when we reached the Is
lands. I think the majority believed
that it would be over-, but to our first
question when we anchored in the Bay
is the fun over-the answer-not by any
meaas; Gen. Lawton was killed a few
days ago. I think all of our feet got
cold that night. the next day came the
order to disembark. By noon we were
all camped in the heart of the City of
Manila trying to make eurselves comn
fortable in our little shelter tents. We
all received a handsome New Year's
gift. took a hike out to the water works
to support the 29th which expected an
attack that day, but no attack was
made, so we were not needed. That nirst
18 mile hike will never be forgotten. Af
ter being on board of the boat and tak
ing no exercise for over a month, it was
enough to make one sleep well, if on
the ground with only a blanket and
poncho. The next day we got orders
to go to M1aricalon. on the South line.
This was only six miles out. We led
the advance South, so every fellow was
in his place when orders came to move.
We ha~d nothing to do at this place bnt
train the men on out post duties. We
remained there until the expedition to
begin the move on the South line was
completed. On January 6th we got
orders to re-enforce the 28th at Innes,
by daylight on the 7th we were on the
hike. When we reached Innes we rest
ed for two hours; all that afternoon we
could hear the roar of the artillery and
the crack of the Kraggs: the officers
would say. "close up men, close up.
close up. About dark we reached the
battle tield where the 28th, had lost
several men, when the wounded were
brought to the rear, and the dead bod
ies of the enemy could be seen on the
roadside, it made one feel like the day-s
of fine soldiering was over, and we
would soon go up against the real stuff.
The next day the 38th took the lead,
Co. "-E" was the advance guard, my
position was not a pleasant one, expect
ing every moment to be fired on, there
was not much time for meditating. The
enemy had " vamoosed,"- we took two
small'towns that day without any re
sistance. Outpost duty was now inter
esting, every now and then a shot would
be heard and the sing of the Mlauser
became real. General Bates came in
with his calvary, the next day we hiked
out and marched all day and until 12
oclock in the night, by day light we
were on the road again, after marching
all day through rice fields over moun
tains, 'we caught up with the ,enemy
about 4 o'clock in the afternoon near- a
little town by the name of Talise. It
was my Co's luck to be the advance
guard that aft. We were marching
slowly down the mountain trail when
without any warning a volley was pout
ed into us. Captain Sawyer did not
command " lie down every man," ex
cept the reserves which I commanded,
and was 600 yards in the rear of the
support, was fiat on the ground, in a
few mnomemts two more volley's were
poured into the point and support. The
enemy was located, and a line formed
while the bullets were singing a regu
lar song, five volley's were poured into
them, and in the brush Co. "-E" rushed
firing at will. The niggers can't stand
when the Americans charge and begin
to yell, so in a few minutes they left
their- trenches, and hiked out. such
running you never saw, then the boys
felt good and the Kraggs began to talk.
One fellow made me bow pr-etty low to
hin, we call it ducking or dodging: I
got a good shot at him, and the last I
saw he went into the bushes head first.
One of the boys said Sgt. you got him
before I cotild get a shot: don't think I
killed him. but I'll bet h'e will know
what a Kragg sounds like, should he
hear one again. The town was taken
without any loss on our side; Here the.
artillery got separated from us. The
next morning~ we went on. and took
another town without any resistance.
and waited until the artillery and sup
plies could go around the mountain. in
tw days the artillery came up and
reported a wagon train captured.
which proved untrue four days
later. WVe were a hungry set of
men. as no looting or stealing was
allowed, oranges and bananas rice and
chickens were olentiful: so when break

From here we left for Lipa where we
expected a strong resistance, it being
the next largest city to Manila on the
Island. About 5 miles fron Lipa the
fun started, and I must say it was the
real stuff. at one time 11 Co's of the
38th. a batterv of artillery and the 39th
Infantry all were engaged for about 2A
hours.The second ibattalion was the re
serves on this occasion. and all were
sent to the front except Co. "E.' l'll
tell you 1 prefer the liring- line every

bowing and dodging. It is not pleasant
to have the dirt thrown in your face by
Mauser bulletts, and hear thatipeculiar
sound when they ricocchet. The men
killed and wounded on this occasion
were hit before deploying farther back
than my company. We thought this
was only the out post, but after getting
to Lipa the Spanish prisoners said that
Agpinaldo had sent out the troops un
mounted to cheek the advance until he
could get out of Lipa with his men etc.
he got out two hours before we arrived
so they said: here we released about 100
Spaniards who had been in prison for
22 months also captured ,20.000 in coin.
Here Colonel Anderson got orders to
remain until supplies and the calvery
could catch up. The 38th. are called
the Hikers. General Schwan tried to
catch us for two days with his calvary.
but gave it up and it is said he remark
ed "H-1 couldn't stop the d- fools."
Up to this time no rations had been
seen. so in two days there wasn't a
chicken left to erow for day in Lipa.

about their experiences. The gun boat

were slaughtered in a frightful way.
Botangas is on the coast. from here the
sick and wounded are sent to Manila:
we get our supplies here also. We are
the first American troops that have ever
been in this part of the island. The
38th has been ordered to garrison Bo
tongas. Lipa and Osario. These are the
most important towns on the south line,
so I can say with good authority that
our fighting and hiking in these parts
is about over. In fact I believe the war
'is practically at an end. Of course
there will still be some fighting, but
nothing compared to what we have

so quick. Everybody here seem to be
pleased with his management and I am
sure it is only those who have been dis
appointed in'some way that are making
the biggest kick. He was right in saiy
ing 25.000 men could straighten things
over here, but it would take time. One
company can whip L.200 of the enemy.
Now every town taken can be garri

broken and things will settle down and

ORFULB1 RND ITS IWFUL BORRORS
A MOST WONDERFUL CURE.
A Grand Old Lady Gives Her Experience.
Mrs. Thankful Orilla Hurd lives in the beautiful village of Brighton,
Livingston Co., Mich. This venerable and highly respected lady was born in
the year 1812, the year of the great war, In Hebron, Washington Co., New
York. She came to Michigan in IS40, the year of "Tippecanoe and Tyler
too." All her faculties are excellently preserved, and possessing a very re
tentive memory, her mind is full of interesting reminiscences of her early
life, of the early days of the State of Michigan and the interesting and re
markable people she has met, and the stirring events of which she was a wit
ness. But nothing in her varied and manifold recollections are more mar
velous and worthy of attention than are her experiences in the use otf
JOHNSTON'S SARSAPARILLA. Mrs. Hurd inherited a tendency and pre
disposition to scrofula, that terribly destructive blood taint which has cursed
and is cursing the lives of thousands and marking thousands more as vic
tims of the death angel. Transmitted from generation to generation, It Is
found in neary every family in one form or another. It may make its ap
pearance in dreadful running sores, in unsightly swellings In the neck or
goltre, or in eruptions of varied forms. Attacking the mucous membrane, It
may be known as catarrh in the head, or developing in the lungs it may be,
and often is, the prime cause or consumption.
Speaking of her case, Mrs. Hurd says: "I was troubled for many years
with a bad skin disease. My arms and limbs would break out In a mass of
sores, discharging yellow matter. My neck began to swell and became very
unsightly In appearance. My body was covered with scrofulous eruptions..
My eyes were alzo greatly inflamed and weakened, and they pained me very
much. My blood wvr li a very bad condition and my head ached severely
at frequent intervals, and I had no appetite. I had sores also in my ears. I
was in a miserable condition. I had tried every remedy that had been recom
mended, and doctor after doctor had failed. One of the best physicians In
the state told me I must die of scrofulous consumption, as internal abcesses
were beginning to form. I at length was told of Dr. Johnston, of Detroit, and
his famous Sarsaparilla. I tried a bottle, more as an experiment than any
thing else. as I had no faith in it, and greatly to my agreeable surprise, I
began to grow better. You can be sure I kept on taking It. I took a great
many bottles. But I steadily improved until I became entirely well. All the
sores healed up. all the bad symptoms disappeared. I gained perfect health.
and I have never been troubled with scrofula since. Of course an old lady
of 83 years is not a young woman, but I have had remarkably good health
since then, and I firmly believe that JOHNSTON'S SARSAPARILLA is the
greatest blood purifier and the best medicine in the wide world, both for
scrofula and as a spring medicine." This remarkably interesting old lady did
not lok to be more than sixty, and she repeated several times, "I believe my
life was saved by JOHNSTON'S SARSAPARILLA."
