MANNING. S. C., MAY 2, 1900.
First Quality.
As is well known to the public, we
control the sale of Harvin's factory
Hose in this town and with our energy
and push. coupled with the great merit
of the goods, we have worked a large
trade in this excellent line of goods.
Now, while we do not control the
seconds the mill makes. for it has al
ways been our motto to sell only first
class goods. yet if our trade desires the
seconds on rccount of their being a lit
tle cheaper, we can furnish their wants,
but we will not recommend the seconds
to give the wear and satisfaction that
can be expected from the first quality
goods.
Harvin's First Quality Factory Hose
bears the imprint of the mill stamp on
every pair of them, Guaranteed Seamless,
while the seconds are not stamped in
any way and do not bear a guarantee:
you simply take them at your own risk:
they may give satisfaction and they
may not.
We wish to impress this fact upon
the minds of the trade, that every pair
of Harvin's First Quality Factory Hose
bears the imprint of the mill stamp,
Guaranteed Seamless, while the sec
onds are not branded and of course not
guaranteed.

One of our merchants is seriously
contemplating the establishing of a
steam laundry in this place. He told
us yesterday that he has been figuring
on the project, and he thinks he can do
the laundry work as cheap as it is be

project will materialize because it is a
scheme very much needed, and we be
lieve it will be patronized by people
living beyond the town limits. Steam
laundry's pay in towns smaller than
Manning and one will pay here.
w. S. Musser. Millheim. Pa.. saved the life of
his little girl by giving her One Minute Cough

Manning was visited last Saturday
by two of Baltimore's multi-million
aires, 'Messrs Abe Heckheimer and Gus
Gumprecht. These gentlemen travel
extensively, and are on the constant
lookout fo'r investments. While here
Mr. Gumphrecht busied himself with
tearing off coupons from the stock of a
factory of which he is the principal
owner. a-,- his companion wiled away
his time-in considering the advisability
of locating a first class hotel with a
laundrv attachment in Manning. These
two capitalists are quite fond of lan
ning, and their acquaintances are fond
of them: they are merry fellows, full
of fun as well as business, and in their
respective lines the concerns they rep
resent have "peaches."
J. C. Kennedy. Roanoke, Tenn.. says. "I can
not say too much for DeWitt's Witch Hazel
Salve. One box of it cured what the doctors
called an incurable ulcer on my jaw." Cures
piles and all skin diseases. Look out for worth
less imitation. D. 0. Rhame. Summerton: Dr.
W. M Brockinton. Manning.
There is considerable kicking at what
is considered an arbitrary rule, recent
lv made by the Manning Telephone
Co., and it would be suprising to us if
another line is not established in the
near futnre. Those who rent "phones"
are not permitted to allow others to
talk without pay, confining the use of
the "phones" strictly to subscribers.
The subscribers complaining contend
that when they rent an instrument it is
theirs as long as they pay, and the
management has no right to prevent
them from using the "phones" as
they see fits When the "phones" were
put in there was nothing said about who
should use the instruments, the sub
scribers taking it for granted that no
arbitrary rules would be adopted. It
just amounts to this, the company will
recede from this unjust rule or sub
scribers will recede from the company.
-'After suffering from severe dyspepsia over
twelve years and using many remedies without
permanent good I finally took Kodol Dyspepsia
ure. It did me so much good I recommend it
to everyone." writes J. E. Watkins. Clerk and

eat. D. 0. Rhame, Summerton: Dr. W. M.

Mr. A. G. Knebel, State secretary of
the Young Men's Christian Association
of North and South Carolina,spent Sun
day and Monday in our town in the in
terest of that work. He addressed five
different meetings on Sunday: in the
afternoon a special men's meeting was
held and some 150 men listened to the
address. At night a union mass meet
ing was held in the Methodist church
and State Secretary Knebel spoke on
he work of the Association in the State
f South Carolina. He referred espe
ially to the work in the colleges. On
Monday some of the business men con
ributed liberally towards carrying on
his work in South Carolina. Prof. J. A.
hackston has been appointed corres
onding member and represents the
Young Men's Christian Association in
Manning. Mr. Knebel expressed him
elf as being delighted with our town
and people.
THE TIMES has received a communi
ation, dated Jordan. which is refused
publication, because it is without the
writers name. People who desire the
use of these columns must accompany
their papers with the name of the
riter. Then again, when they have
a complaint to make about a preacher's
conduct, the church where the preach
er belongs is the place to make it, and
not this paper. We are not here to
make exposures unless those exposures
affect the public. If there is ground
for charging a pi~acher with conduct
unbecoming his high calling, and, the
party making the charge can sustain it
ith proof, take him before the church
tribunal, and if the officers there "will
ot consent to a hearing,'' then appeal
to the denomination paper. setting
forth the charges, the action of the
church officers, and the proof. A secu
lar paper has no business permitting
itself to mix with church rucuses.
Miss Florence Newman. who has been a great
sufferer from muscular rheumatism, says Chain

The State Convention was a great
success and harmony reigned supreme.
Col. L. W. Youmans a personal enemy
of Senator Tillman, undertook to create
a rumpus, but his efforts fell contemtu
ously flat. The Clarendon delegation
were on hand to a man~but unfortunately
Mr. R. S. DeSchamnps left home unwell,
and right after the morning session he
became worse. He gradually grew
siker, and had to leave for home on
the first train. About the only change
in the constitution of importance i-e
lates to the permitting of County Ex
ecutive Committees to order Magis

primary. Heretofore this was for

Convention which meets in Kansas
City for this district are. D. H. Tr'ax

"Ilt is with a good deal of pleasure and satis
faction that I recommend Chamberlain's Colic.
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy." says Drug
gist A. W. Sawtelle, of Hartford. Conn. " A
lady customer. seeing the remedy exposed for
sale on my show case, said to me: 'I really be
lieve that medicine saved my life the past sum
mer while at the shore.' and she became so en
thusiastic over its merits that I at once made
up my mind to recommend it in the future.
Recently a gentleman came into my store so
overcome with colic pains that he sank at once
to the floor. I gave him a dose of this remedy
which helped him. I repeated the dose and in
ifteen minutes he left my store smilingly in
Iforming me that he felt as w~ell as ever." Sold

ALL THAT LOUDITALK
ABOUT THE CHEAPEST STORE
Might be very confusing and misleading if people did not have a good test
to apply, and tha is. judge a merchant not by what he says in his advertise
ments, but by what he does in value giving. That's just the basis upon which
we ask people to judge our store.
We like to have our advertisements read, for they are our store news, but
we dont ask people to take them as proof that we give the best values. That.
proof awaits our customers at our store.
