Mr. Frank McGrath, the piano tuner
who frequently visited Manning. 1\ c
Grath died under distressing circum
stances. He was taken sick and was not
able to pay for proper medical atten

nied him, and although against his pro
test he was taken to the poor house
where he died. The deceased was a
native of Ireland, and a member of the
famous Louisiana Tigers, a piano tuner
by profession and in religion a Catholic.
McGrath was a heavy drinker, but
quiet, and always gentlemanly in his
manners. It was not creditable to the
citizans of Columbia to close the hos
pital doors against this unfortunate
man, and in a city where there are
churches, a Door of Hope, and other
charitable organizations, together with
a Veteran's Camp to have permitted
this Confederate Veteran to die in the
poor house is a sin and a shame.

five miles west of Manning. Mr. Sauls
was engaged in .ginning cotton, the
gin became choked and he undertook
to reimove the obstruction, the saws
caught his left arm and so lacerated it,
that amputation was necessary. The
arm was taken off close to the shoulder
and he never recovered from the shock.
He died the next morning.
Mr. Sauls came to Clarendon from

became one of the most substantial far

were conducted on Saturday morning

His store is in departments and would

that can be handled in a general mer
cantile store is handled here, and
prompt and polite attention is given to
every body. With that foresight
characterstic of Mr. ODonnell, he has
had every convenience put into his
mammoth establishment for the comfort
of his customers. There are toilet
rooms & dressing rooms for those who af

Those who h e been keeping up
with our comme...s on Manning's market
will remember that we gave our busi
ness men some advice that if followed
would injure to their interests. We
told them what they would have to do
to build up our commercial relations
with the producers of the county's pro
ducts, and we believe that most of them
appreciate the motives which prompt
us. Now to make Manning a first class
market, should not be left for-the mer
chants to do it all. Every farmer in
Clarendon county is interested in mak
ing the county seat a first class market.
Why? Because the county seat is the
hub on which the rest of the county
revolves, and if the county seat is pros
perous and growing, the county like
wise prospers and grows. If the town
of Manning was to increase in popula
tion and business importance, every
foot of land in the county would en
hance in value-proportionately; there
fore, it is essential for our farmers to
lend a helping hand in the work of
building up. How is this to be done?
The merchant must see to it that the
market is the equal of any, and the far
mer should take pride in bringing his
products here to increase the market's
importance. The more cotton and to
bacco brought here, the more buyers
will seek it, and the more buyers, the
more active will be the competition.
If our farmers will bring their cotton
and tobacco to Manning, necessity will
drive out anything which may have a
semblance of monopoly. There will be
no monkey busines in tobacco, and the
cotton buyers will always have their
"limit," and they will only be too glad
to buy direct from the wagons. If the
farmers give this town an earnest trial
this season, and they do not see an im
provement, then before the next season
rolls around, steps will be taken for the
The more cotton taken from here
and sold on other markets, weakens us,
and as we become weakened we cannot
compete with the strong markets,
what gives a market strength, is the
quantity and quality of it's products
and when the streets are white with
cotton, it quickens the pulse of the
commercial body and the demand be
comes greater. Farmers bring your
cotton and tobacco to Manning, and
you will find that our merchants are
only too anxious to build up yours and
their own interests. There is no risk
to run in bringing it here, if the buy
ers wont buy, because of not having
received their "limit," then you can
whisper a deal over the teiephone.
Remember that Manning is your natur
al market and what helps this town
helps the county; if you give our busi
ness men the encouragement they
should receive, we are satisfied it will
result in your and their benefit.
Business men you must in order to
encourage our farmers, see to it that
this market is made as strong as con
ditions will warrant, and for may as
will make up your minds that cotton
must be bought and not be driven away.
Build up the market, by paying full
prices, be satisfied with the profits on
your sales and do not expect to make
profits on the cotton. Buy the cotton
with a view of selling goods, if this is
done our market will be good healthy
and strong and Clarendon's farmers
will come to it.
The ethics of pharmacy is not alone
competency, but the desir3 to be cour
teous, obliging, attentive and prompt
to the wants of those who are desirous
of having prescriptions compounded.
Mr. Plumer Clark, Ph. G., second
honor man, realizes this, and our pair
rons can rest assured that he will ac
curd them the most kindly and consid
en 'te treatment. He is in charge of
our prescription department. While
we do not rest on past laurels still we,
can, with pardonable pride, point to
over a quarter of a century of reliable
and reputable business methods comn
'ined with courteous treatment to all
without discrimination. It is hardly
'ecessary to say that this reputation
will be maintained by the present man

May not meet with a unanimous approval, but there are none who disap
prove of Commercial expansion at home.
The LEVI BROTHERS of Sumter, in order to meet the demands of
our growing and expanding business, were forced to seek more commodious
uarters. Accordingly we contracted for and leased the old J. T. Solomon
store next to the court house, and after an expenditure .of considerable
money we have now one of the handsomest and best equipped stores in the
city, to which we extend a most cordial invitation to the readers of TE
TiMES, and in this connection we desire to express our gratitude to the
people for the patronage and the manifestations of confidence reposed in us.
The sumter cotton market is one of the best in the State and we
rekon ourselves among the heaviest buyers; this we could not do if we did
not pay full market price, and having the very best facilities for handling
cotton we can guarantee prices to those favoring us with their patronage.
