GREAT HOLI DAY
We will apply the Knife freely to prices from
now until the end of the lo1idays.
Our colossal display of Holiday Goods will be the admi
ration of all who will be fortunate enough to see the
display, and what will be still more attractive will
be the low prices at which we will sell all classes of
DRY GOODS, SHOES, HATS & CL THINS!
It is a well known fact with all those who are acquainted with the stores of Manning
that the Jenkinson Dry Goods Store carries the largest line of staple Dry Goods of any
house in the County.
A Holiday Surprise.
We propose to surprise the people of Clarendon by giving them a Holiday Sale that
will do their pocket-books good in the way of Low Prices, for we have the largest and best
stock and we are going to sell at prices that will make the people buy.
The first person guessing the number or nearest the number of Seed in a Pumpkin
that we will have in the store for that purpose, will be given a Fine $40 COLUMBIA
TALKING MACHINE with 24 select Records.
The second nearest guesser will be given a Fine $3 LADIES' or GENT'S HAT.
The third nearest guesser will be given a $2 PAIR of LADIES' or GENT'S SHOES.
The fourth nearest guesser will be given a $1.50 LADIES' or GENT'S UMBRELLA.
The fifth nearest guesser will be given a 50c. LADIES' or GENT'S SILK NECKTIE.
Each and every person will be entitled to ONE GUESS for every DOLLAR IN CASH they spend
in our store from now until the night of the 24th day of DECEMBER, 19oo, at which time the Pumpkin will
be cut, the seed counted and the pri-es awarded.
This is an opportunity that no one should fail to
take advantage of, as you will be able to buy Goods
cheaper during our Great Holiday Sale than ever before
and at the-same time stand the chance of getting that
$40 COLUM~BIA TALKING MACHINE or one of the other
Prizes. Come one, Come all!

"Do you see that with the dark
mustache?" sail Shcr-k iolmes, Jr.
"Yes. Do yo:, k:nOW him?
"I never saw him lefur. IIe is mar
ried. He ought to 've in a flat. but
doesn't. His wife is afraid of the
hired girl, and he is left handed."
"Mr. Holmes, you are an everlasting
narvel. How can you tell that about a
man you don't know and whom you
never saw before y'
"Look at the second knuckle on his
left hand. You see, it is badly skinned.
Also there Is a black mark on his left
cuff. Now let us see what we must
make of this. Wlien a left handed man
pokes up the furnace fire, how does he
do it? By putting his left hand for
ward, of course. Thus it happened
that it was his left hand which scraped
against the furnace door. The black
ened cuff shows that it was a furnace
door. Having this foundation to work
upon, the rest Is easy. If he lived in a
flat, he would have no furnace to look
after, and If his -ife were not afraid
of the hired girl they would make the
latter do the poking up. It is all very
simple if one's perceptive faculties are
properly trained. He can't really af
ford to live in a house, because if he
could he would have a man to look aft
er the furnace. Therefore he ought to
live in a lat."
"But hold on. Ilow do you know the
man is married? Ile can't be over 30
at the most. Why may it nct be possi
ble that he lives at home with his wid
"My dear sir," said Sherlock Holmes,
Jr., "I am surprised at your lack of
perspicacity. If he lived at home with
his widowed mother, he would permit
her to tend to the furnace herself."
A Round Robin Remedy.
When a doctor of 30 years' practice
encounters a new experience, it must
be worth relating. This is from a phy
sician on Lafayette avenue who has
fought disease for the period named.
"I saw him get gingerly out of a wag
on in front of the office. He then left
the team with his daughter, ignored
the bell and pounded lustily on the
door. I answered in person because I
thought he and my office girl might
get Into an argument, for he looked
just like a man who would insist upon
seeing the 'doe' at once.
"'Doe,' he began without other pre
liminary, 'I've been a-takin truck fur
six months, and blamed If I hain't
worse'n I was at the beginnin.'
"'What's the matter with you?'
"'Stomach's all cut o' whack. Regu
lar riot down there all the time and
me a-dosin in the remerdy after each
meal and at early bedtime.'
"'What are you taking?'
"'Here It is, doe, and I got a lot left
yet. My first wife uster buy it in the
bulk 'cause It came cheaper.'
"'But this is for the lungs.'
"'S'pose I don't know that? Course
it's fur the lungs. That's what was
the matter with her. I don't care If it
was fur the liver. It's got ter go to the
stomach first, hain't it? And the stom
ach and the lungs hain't so durned far
apart but what helps one helps the
other and what gits to one gits to the
other.' "-Detroit Free Press.
An Expelled M. P.'s Prayer.
During the first half of the eight
enth century one of the members for a
southern constituency was expelled
from the house of commons for forgery
and Indeed endured the purgatory of
standing in the pillory for a day. Hle
was a man of unctuous piety, and his
:areer In many respects resembled that
f Jabez Balfour in later days. After
is death the following prayer was
found in his own handwriting among
"0 Lord, thou knowest that 1 have
ine houses in the city of London and
hat I have lately purchased an estate
n fee simple in the county of Essex. I
eseech thee to preserve the two coun
es of Middlesex and Essex from fire
ad earthquake, and as I have a mort
age In Herefordshire I beg of thee to
have an eye of compassion also on that
ounty, and for the rest of the counties
hou mayest deal with them as thou art
;leased. Give a prosperous voyage to
the Mermaid, because I have not in
sured her, and enable the bank to meet
heir bills."-St. James Gazette.
Steam and Battleship.
A whole fleet in the days of Nelson
ould be built and fitted out at little
more than the cost of a single ironclad.
The coal expended on a single cruiso
would pay for the refitting of his whole
attie line, while the immense shells re
uired to make any Impression on the
modern armor plate cost more than his
whole armament. But the modern line
f hattie ship could neither be built,
rmed nor fought without the use of
steam, and Its evolution may be said to
have commenced with the first applica
ton of the steam engine to navigation.

Stories of John Sherman.
To hil aid in his political life John
Sherman brought a nature instinctively
methodical and an unflinching probity.
He saw to it that the public moneys
were not squandered or used for dis
honest purpcses. A claim for $1,000,
000 was once brought to him for his
signature. It had been regularly al
lowed, but it was illegal, and he re
fused to sign.
"It has been allowed," insisted the
claui:nt's attorney. "and you must
"I will not." repeated Mr. Sherman,
and he did not. Ile would have resign
ed, he afterwnald confided to a friend,
had it been required of him sooner that
even seem to sanction a fraud. Neither
-would he permit irregularities. The
chief of a bureau one day came to him
for an order to pay for some machin
"Has it been advertised?" asked the
"No," said the chief, "but there are
only two places where it can be made,
and we are accustomed to get their
bids and contract with the lowest."
"But." said the secretary, "the law
says it must be advertised."
"At least this may pass, for It Is
made, and we need it."
"I cannot help that. Thu law says it
must be advertised, and alvertiscd it
must be." And advertised it was at a
very large saving to the government.

A Lesson In Seamanship.
Captain Hans Miron, who lost his
life at his post of duty on the burning
Saale at Hoboken, was fond of telling
of his early introduction to the stern
realities of his chosen career. He had
but just come on board the schooner
where as cabin boy he was to serve his
apprenticeship to the sea and was still
staring about him with boyish Interest
and inquisitiveness when the skipper
approached and ordered him to assist
in washing down the deck.
He put down his bundle and started
awkwardly to do so, when a second
order, accompanied by emphatic ex
pletives, was given him to take off his
shoes and stockings. He was perfectly
willing to oblige, but at home he had
not been permitted to wet his feet.
"No," he answered Innocently, with an
engaging smile, "I should not mind.
but my mother does not allow it."
The skipper was a rough old sea dog
who did not appreciate obedience un
less it was rendered to himself, and his
reply was a stunning blow that flung
the boy across the deck. "But after
that," Captain Miron would say, with a
great laugh and not a shadow of re
sentment, "I knew who was captain of
that schooner, and It was not my
Four Kings and a Joker.
At the time of Colonel Cody's advent
into the capital of Germany the old
Emperor William was entertaining
there three kings of smaller Germanic
powers. The royal gentlemen were
very much interested In the Buffalo
Bill exhibitions, and Colonel Cody was
the recipient of many favors from the
emperor himself. One feature of the
performance was the exhibition of the
antiquated Deadwood coach containing
passengers who are attacked by In
dians and finally rescued by cowboys.
The kaiser asked to be allowed to
ride in this vehicle with his royal
guests and to participate in this inter
esting experience. The request was of
course granted, and when the coach
was furiously assailed by howling In
dians Its Inmates were as usual saved
by gallant cowboys.
After it was over and as the royal
party were descending from the coach
the emperor remarked:
"Colonel Cody, I do not suppose this
is the first time that you have ever held
"No, your majesty," returned the
quick witted scout. "but this Is the first
time I ever held four kings and a royal
joker at the same timeI"-San Francis

Fresh Water Springs In Midocean.
Several fresh water fountains are
known to exist in the gulf of Mexico,
where vessels have frequently filled
their casks with ice cold sweet water
that comes up like a geyser in the
midst of the salt water. The fresh
water springs, as the sailors call them,
have been known In the gulf for 200
or 300 years. They were discovered by
early voyagers and were the salvation
of many a mariner whose supply of
fresh water ran short while he was
becalmed in the doldrums.' Some of
the fresh water springs are marked
upon the charts, but there is so little
need of them nowadays by the steam
ers on the gulf and the sailing fleet is
so small that no attention Is paid to
them, and they have passed out of the
knowledge of the younge? skipper.
