"THE WICKED FLEETH."
THE MANNING TIMES and The State
are keeping things warm this delight
Wonder if (would be) Governor Gen
eral N. G. Gonzales. the \Veylerite and
dictator (?) of the press will order the
THE TIMES into outer darkness t nd
eternal banishment from the light .of
influence of his spanish malice, preju
dice and hate.
You should have swallowed the in
sult, Brother Appelt, and written a
column editorial about the Scholarly (.)
Christian (?) Gentleman (?) who pens
such manly and masterful editorials in
the greatest paper on earth (?) with
more or less syncophantic gush; and
this Narrow Gauge Weylerite would
doubtless have appointed you "Master
of the Horse." This job would be more
pleasant now than it used to be when
he was in the swamps of Cuba dodging
his ancestry, from Spain.
Should this imitation Weylerite cut
you off and consign you to a lonely
prison cell in exile, to feed on the stale
bread and water of the other ex
changes of the State and deny you the
broiled (canned) steak and (condensed)
milk and honey of his great paper. We
shall offer you sympathy. Let us know
how you feel.-Johnston Monitor.
Oh well, we feel -like we im
agine one would after probing
in some hiding place with a
stick, and coming across that
species of animal which emits an
obnoxious liquid as a means of
defense. This miserable contro
versy was not begun by us, nor
did we desire such. A discus
sion of public questions ona high
plane can accomplish good, but
a villifying match will only grat
ify an- element who revel in
broils. We were slandered by
The State to gratify a long har
bored spleen, and when we
showed resentment by demand
ing proof the creature squirted
his matter and then hiked out
for the seashore.
The State of 19th, inst., re
plying to an editorial in THE
TIMES of last issue, whereil we;
clearly showed that Jas.A.Hoyt,
Jr., did not produce the proof for
his assertion that we were -eco
nomical in the use of the truth,"
but he undertook to deceive the
public by citing his own asser
tions; for instance, he said the
South Carolina Baptist retracted
its charge against Colonel Hoyt,
having been an advocate of high
license, and that we did not make
the correction. We have never
seen such a retraction, and from
information received since this
"Jas. A. Hoyt, Jr.," made his
assertion, we can defy him or
any other being on earth to pro
duce any editorial from the South1
Carolina Baptist where such a
retraction was published.
When proof is demanded, the
people are able to distinguish as
sertion from proof, and we are
ready to take the paragraphs quo
ted by "Jas. A. Hoyt, Jr.," fromn
.TE MANNING TIMES, and prove
their truthfulness by the fldes of
the very paper that this "Jas. A.
Hoyt, Jr.," refugees under. We
never charged Colonel Hoyt with
ever having advocated high li
cense, that charge came from a
religious paper representing the
church of which Colonel Hoyt
holds his membership. If there
was any lying, those Baptist
ministers who edit the South
Carolina Baptist are responsible.
But why continue, "Jas. A.
Hoyt, Jr.," has not made good
his claim. He submitted his
assertions, called us a 'liar and
black-guard" and then pulled out
of Columbia "for the seashore,"
without our bothering to seek
him. Any street gamin might
throw-a brick-bat at a gentleman
and then run up a dark alley, but
when it comes to facing one with
the terms "liar and black-guard"
as "Jas. A. Hoyt, Jr.," has had
frequent opportunities to do, it
makes a decided difference.
The editorial of the Columbia
-State of 19th, inst., is so much of
an enigma that we cannot com.
prehend its meaning, there seems
to be in it, a flood of woi-ds and a
drought of thought, except that
it has a tone of haughtiness and
self-importance; really, a degree
of importance that can only be
appreciated by Editor Gonzales.
We challenge the Columbia State
to produce the editorial of the
South Carolina Baptist which re
tracted its charge against Colon
el Hoyt having been an advo
cate of high license. We pro
pose to convince even The State
on this and other points quoted
by "Jas. A. Hoyt, Jr."
The wheat crop of the West
was the largest for many years,
but we must not let that deceive
us into the belief that corn and
flour will be cheap next summer.
It will not be, for the reason,
Europe has made a complete
failure in breadstuffs, and as a
consequence the export trade
will be immense. The foreign
demand will be heightened by
the wars in China, South Africa
and the Philippines, and already
European agents are making
contracts for American cereals.
We therefore advise our farmers
to make all the corn and forage
possible, for the man who is
force to buy either of these ne
cessities next summer, even for
the cash, will find himself in a
woeful condition. Farmers
watch your corn cribs and not
let a grain be wasted, every
grain represents so many drops
of bloody sweat, and may be
needed to stave off a bread fam
We hardly know just what to
think of cotton yet, because,
notwithstanding the short-crop
reports from Texas and Missis
sippi, we do not bank heavily on
then to give encouragement for
high prices. We have a recollec
tion of similar reports from the
same sections a few years ago,
and when the crop was harvest
ed and put on the market, the
receipts at the ports grew larger
and larger every day, and finally
the farmer was forced to sell his
eight cent cotton for five, and be
thankful to get that.
A rule we have made that we
will adhere to, that is never
again to offer advise to the farm
ers to hold cotton for better
prices, but we can always feel
safe in advising them td gather
their crop as early as possible,
gin it as early as possible, sell it
as early as possible, and hold
the money they get for it as long
That was real kind of the
News & Courier this morning to
give Senator McLaurin permis
sion "to say to the Minneso
ta people that a very advanta
geous piace will be assigned to
their State on the Exposition
grounds," etc. Has the News &
Courier at lest awakened to the
realization that Senator Mc
Laurin can be of great service
to the Exposition?
The crop prospect, according
to the reports that reach us, is
corn about 46 per cent and cot
ton not over fifty, although there
has been a great improvement in
the cotton weed. Cotton that
two weeks ago was about to be
abandoned has come out so much
that hopes are entertained for a
fair yield, but the crop is short,
and very short.
There is more Catarrh in this section of the
country than all other diseases put together.
and until the last few years was supposed to be
incurable. For a great many years doctors pro
nounced it a local disease. and prescribed local
remedies. and by constantly failing to cure with
local treatment. pronounced it incurable. Science
has proven catarrh to be a constitutional dis
ease, and therefore requires constitutional treat
ment. Hall's Catarrh Cure, manufactured by
F. J. Cheney & Co.. Toledo. Ohio, is the only
constitutional cure on the market. It is taken
internally in doses from 10 drops to a teaspoon
ful. It acts directly on the blood and mucous
surfaces of the system. They offer one hun
dred dollars for any case it fails to cure. Setid

Crops of Several Townships Reported-A Sad
Editor The Manning Times:
Through the columns of the press we
learn much of interest in politics also
the doings and sayings of society, and
the financial strength of our county,
our State, our Nation. Along with the
views of expansion and the tariff. But
very little is said of agriculture, the
most escential of all other subjects, and
the only hope and foundation that can
assure uts peace, prosperity and happi
ness, and it would be instructive as well
as a source of a great profit if the mary
able correspondents of the press would
reflect their views as to the conditions
and prospets of crops, for we are an
xous to -now how the grain and cotton
crops are maturing in our county as
well as out of the county. We do not
wish to be understood as antagonizing
any views on other matters, as we ap
preciate them, but owing to the critical
conditions of the crops reported by our
national crop reporters. It raises an
interest, vital to our hoines and chil
dren. I live in the Davis Cross Roads
section,and report the crops in St. Paul,
Concord, St. James and Friendship
township's, both cotton and corn has
materially improved and crops chat
have been cultivated looks healthy and
doing well, while we do not er:pect to
make an average normal corn erop we
have been greatly encouraged in the
last ten days, as we notice the improv
ment in corn crops; ia the townships
mentioned cotton has improved, looks
green and prosperous though small ex
cept some fields that ha':e been aban
doned or cleared of grass lately, from
the long seige of rain, the stands of peas
are excellent and forward. also potato
spouts promising, we have had scarce
ly any fruit, but we are thankfull for a
good supply of vegetables, late melons
promises good, but too much rain for
forward melens: we report for our sur
rouding township, hope others will do
likewise for theirs. As there are as
good lands and farmers in the other
townships as in the ones mentioned.
We only want to hear from them as we
feel interested in the crops of our coun
ty, hoping to hear a good report from
them on this important subject.
Seasons for the past two weeks have
been good, interspersed with gentle
showers of rain.
Much sickness in the townships above
named, and some cases extremely
serious with one death Mr. Johnnie W.
King one of the brightest young men of
St Paul, died on the night of the 16th,
with typhoid malarial fever, after three
weeks intense suffering. He had just
returned home from Porters Military
Academy, Charleston. where he had
made a high mark, for two years he
was connected with it. he rose to the
position of a non-commissioned officer
and dearly loved by his company, A., of
his Batallion: one more year if he had
lived, no doubt would have graduated
with high honors. We extend to his
beloved parents our sincere sympathies
trusting behind this dark and frowning
providence they may see the hand of
God, chastening those whom he loved.
The burial service was held at St Paul
M. E. Church on the 17th, where a
large congregation assembled to pay
their last respects to this young man
whom they loved for-.his high and hon
o-able character-. X.

Editor The Manning Times: t
As you was good enough to print
that little piece I wrote, I will make
bold to try my luck again.
I see from the paper that several of a
the one-gallus boys seen my piece, and t
was glad to see them fellows get a little,
small rakin' over. I jest know from t
the way they write that they ain't got
bat one gallus and a wool hat, jest like
ine. Mr. Ben Tillman hit the nail
square on the head when he named us
the one-gallus, wool-hat boys. It looks
so natural, you know, to see one of our
boys plowin' a lank-sided mule, with
one gallus and a wool hat.
I believe, Mr. Editor, that there is a
heap of people that jest believes that
because we don't dress fine and can
make up our minds to follow the bisness
end of a mule for a livin' that we ain't
fit for nothin' else and can't do nothin'
else. But I'm a tellin' you that ain't
so, for there's Ben Tillman, Jim Tin- !
dal. John Peter Richardson and a heap
more that I don't know. Beat them for
hard hoss sense if you can. Yes, sir,
there's plenty of sense scattered 'round
'mongst us farmers, but the great and o
the grand trouble is, we don't stand by r
one another and take up for one an
other like the other perfessions. We
acts too much like geese. You turn a
set of geese loose in a field and every e
fellow takes his own course. All we 1
got to do is stand together like all the c
other perfersions, and we'll be jest as o
safe as a cooter when he goes in his r
hole and pulls the hole in after him. a
Now, jest suppose for instance that
these here cotton seed oil fellows was
to come round here next fall and say:
"Look a hear, fellows, I want to by
them cotton seed, I jest got to have d
'em; I done got my mill up and if I
don't get them seed my mill will have i
to stop and I'll be at a dead expence; r
I will give you ten cents a bushel for tl
'em." Now jest suppose we was to
buck right up to 'em like a man and
say: "Well, sir, you jest can't get 'em t
for ten cents; I want 20 cents a bushel s
for 'em, and if you don't give it to me
I'll put 'em to my corn next spring." a
Now where you reckon they would be S
at if we was to tell 'em that and stand
I ain't got nothin', not a thing 'ginst
the cotton seed oil men, I want to see
'em prosper: but they can prosper with
out grindin' the dus' out of us farmers.
It showvs a good, healthy condition to
see a man wot's got money put it out in
some sort of bisness so it can make him n
more money-that's right and propper: t
but there ain't no sense nor use in him b
grindin' somebody else into powder to e
Now their's already a trus' formin'
to buy up all the cotton seed next fall.
All 1 got to say is, they got more faith u
than ole Peter had. Great snakes and 0
caterpillars, the brass them fellows got S
would run a fu.ndry for twelve months. 0
Why, the cotteoi ain't made yet and -f
they can't get cotton seed without cot- ,
ton; but they jest got brass enough to
think that tha money :inl make our lit
tie hoss run. Look out your hoss don't
balk and leave you in the mud next
fall. We. farmers want to see you cot
ton seed oil men have all tie seed that r
you need, we want to see your bisness
prosper, but we jest ratually ain't a
goin' to give 'em to yo.1: we'll * .'
seed and make a big corn e -
year fust.' The mill men's d. .. a
that the meal is just as good :or miau
ure as the seed is, and I speck some
people bleave it, but I know it ain't so.
The meal will start a crop quicker'n
the seed, but when the meal is done t
gone them seed is right there makin'
that crop hustle: I done tried it.
Now jest a word to the one-gallu,
wool-hat brigade and I'll stop. My
dear wool-hat brothers, what you reck- I
on ole Peter is a goin' to say to them 11
trus' fellows when they gets to the gol- t
den gate? Wonder if they got to meet a
ole Peter fair and square like the rest 4
of us. Let them answer that.- All I
got to say is, fellows, be men, don't run,
stand to your guns; be like Jackson
and his crowd of one-gallus fellows wasa
when that fellow hollered out, " Yon- o
der's Jackson standin' like a stone 1t
wall" And then another time our Pi
fellers was behind brestworks and the */
aminition give out. Did they run? No! ti
Each feller got a pile of rocks and when ~
the Yanks got close enough they did E
let them rocks fly, and the docturs said
that there was a lot of broke skulls after
that fight. That's the way to stand,
