CHILDREN'S DAY AT PINE GROVE.
It is always a pleasure to have
the privilege of spending the
day among those open-hearted j
generous Salemites, and when- e
ever an opportunity presents it- c
self, it is a keen disappointment I
when we find ourself unable to
accept their invitation. Through s
the thoughtfulness of several c
friends we were honored with
invitations to attend a Sunday s
school celebration and picnic at
Pine Grove church last Satur
day. We went over on Friday t
afternoon and spent the night at s
Mr. Alonzo Smith's: on the way (
we had the pleasure of a long i
conversation with a Mr. Roland, a
whom we found to be a man of s
much travel and thoroughly
posted on current events. He at
one time held an important posi
tion under Col. McIver State
Treasurer, and has traveled all
over the United States and Mex- d
ico. Mr. Roland has been living
in the Turbeville section for sev
eral years, and has become con
tented with farm life. Saturday t
morning we drove down to the t
church and the people from far n
and near were gathering. Lem- 1
onade vendors had erected their d
stands and were doing a thriving t
business. Candidates were there t
from Senator down, and such t
hand-shaking was a caution, but f
it was a field day for the politi- '
cian and he took advantage of it.
Pine Grove church is one of
the finest church edifices in the
county, large, airy, handsomely I
carpeted, and as well equipped
as any church we have ever en- d
tered outside of a large city. C
There had been erected above b
the chancel a broad platform, :
and the decorations were not s
only pretty but very appropri-c
ate. Pastor Whitaker has every a
reason to feel proud of this
charge; the auditorium was fill- C
ed to overflowing and many had
to stand, while at least 200 peo- e
ple did not get in the church at c
all. The crowd is estimated at 3
over 700. The following pro
gram was carried out in a man
ner to win praises for those who b
had the training of the children:
1. Children's day greeting exercise. T
2. Welcome song.
3. Prayer closing with the Lord's
5. Questions on growth, etc. e
6. Hosanna to Jesus-song. a
7. Till he come-exercise. c
8. Touns achild of hope etc-song.
9. Christ the childrens friend.
10. What a friend-song.t
11. The alphabetical temperance s
12. Little thoughts for Jesus-song. f
13. The childrens kingdom. a
14. Weils of salvation.
15. Something in the Bible for chil-a
16. The child among the Nazareth
17. The child of Nazareth.
18. The word I lost. t
19. Not invited. t
20. Singing praises.b
22. The living Christ.
23. Address by Prof. Clinkscales
24. Good by-song.
Professor Clinkscales deliver

a forceful speaker, and his ap
peals for the education of the d
young men were bristling with g
logic, pathos and humor. He I
would have the audience in deep 1'

conkiderable rivalry among the
children to get the most money ~
for their respective sides. It t
was indeed a unique or rather a f
Celydesque way of gathering in C
shekels for a worthy cause. The
children did their parts well and
there were several features de- z
serving of more than casual no- r
tice. Among the voices were a a
number which attracted the at- r
tention of the visitors. Miss a
Mattie Green was the organist. d
After the exercises in the
church, came the dinner, a regu

St. Peter at the Gate.
(This poem is republished by special request.)
St. Peter stood guard at the golden gate.
With a solemn mien and an air sedate,
When up to the top of the golden stair ,
A man and a woman ascending there
Applied for admission. They came and stood
Before St. Peter, so great and good,
In hopes the City of Peace to win.
Anid asked St. Peter to let them in.
The woman was tall and lank and thin,
With a scraggy beardlet upon her chin.
The man was short and thick and stout;
His stomach was built so it rounded out;
His face was pleasant, and all the while
He wore a kindly and genial smile.
The choirs in the distance in echoes woke,
And the man kept still while the woman spoke.
"Oh. thou who gards the gate." said she.
" We two come hither beseeching thee
To let us enter the heavenly land
And play our harps with the angel band.
Of me. St. Peter, there is no doubt;
There's nothing from heaven to bar me out.
I've been to meetings three times a week,
And almost always I'd rise and speak.
"I've told the sinners about the day
When they'd repent of their evil way;
I've told my neighbors-I've told 'em all
'Bout Adam and Eve and the primal fail:
I've shown them what they'd have to do
If they'd pass in with the chosen few;
I've marked their path of duty clear
Laid out the plan of their whole career.
"I've talked and talked to 'em loud and long
For my lungs are good and my voice is strong.
So, good St. Peter, you'll clearly see
The gate of heaven is open for me;
But my old man. I regret to say.
Hasnt walked in exactly the narrow way.
He smokes and he swears, and grave faults he's
Afd I don't know whether he'll pass or not.
"He never would pray with an earnest vim
Or go to revival or join in a hymn;
So I had to leave him In sorrow there.
While I with the chosen united in prayer.
He ate what the pantry chanced to afford
While I, in my purity, sang to to Lord;
And if cucumbers were all he got.
It's a chance if he merited them or not.
"But oh. St. Peter. I lova him so!
To the pleasures of heaven please let him go.
I've done enough; a saint I've been.
Won't that atone? Can't you let him in?
By my grim gospel I know 'tis so
That the unrepentant must fry below:
But isn't there sonie way you can see
That he may enter, who's dear to me?
"It's a narrow gospel by which I pray.
But the chosen expects to find some way
[Of coaxing, or fooling, or bribing you
So their relations can amble through:
And say. St. P'eter, it seems to me
This gate Isn't kept as It ought _to be.
You ought to stand by the opening there.
And never sit down in that easy-chair.
"And say. St. Peter. my sight is dimmed.
But I don't like the way your whiskers is trim
They are cut too wide, and outward toss;
They'd look better narrow, cut straight across.
Well, we must be going, our crowns to win:
So open. St. Peter. and we'll pass in:"
* S * * *
St. Peter sat quiet and stroked his staff:
But, spite of his office, he had to laugh.
Then said, with fiery gleam in his eye:
"Wth's tending this gateway-you or Iv"
And then he arose, in his stature tall,
And pressed a button on the wall;
And said to the imp who answered the bell:
"Escort this lady around to hell!
The man stood still as a piece of stone
Stood sadly, gloomily, there alone.
A life-long settled Idea he had
That his wife was good and he was bad.
He thought if the woman went down below.
That he would certainly have to go:
That If she went to the regions dim.
There wasn't a ghost of a show for him.
Slowly ne turned, by habit bent,
To follow wherever the woman went.
St. Peter. standing on duty there
Observed that the top of his head was bare.
He called the gentleman back and said:
"Friend, how long have you been wed?"
"Thirty years" (with weary sigh):
And then he thoughtfully added." Why?"
St. Peter was silent. With head bent down
He raised his band and scratched his crown.
Then, seeming a different thought to take.
Slowly, half to himself, he spake:
"Thirty years with that woman there?
No wonder the man hasn't any hair:
Swearing is wicked: smoke's not good.
He smoked and swore-I should think he would.
"Thirty years with that tongue so sharp?
Oh. Angel Gabriel. give him a harp:
A jeweled harp with a golden string:
Good sir, pass in where the angles sing.
Gabriel. give him a seat alone
One with a cushion. np near the throne:
Call up some angels to p lay their best;
Let him enjoy the music-and rest:
"See that on the finest ambrosia he feeds:
He's had about all tne hell he needs.
It isn't just hardly the thing to do
To roast him on earth and the future, too:"
They gave him a harp with golden strings
A glittering robe and a pair of wings;
And he said, as he entered the realm of day:
"Well, this beats cucumbers. anyway:!"
And so the scriptures had come to pass
"The last shall be first and the first shall be

A Cure for Cholera Infantum.
" Last May," says Mrs. Curtis Baker
of Bookwalter, Ohio, "an infant child
of our neighbor's was suffering from
cholera infantum. The doctor had
given up all hopes of recovery. I took
a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic, Chol
era and Diarrhoea Remedy to the
house, telling them I felt sure it would
do good if used according to directions
In two days' time the child had fully
recovered, and is now (nearly a year

recommended this Remedy frequently
and have never known it to fail in any
single instance." For sale by The R.

THlE BEST METHOD OF FRYING FOOD.
Some Valuable Suggestions and How to
Get Satisfactory Results. No Need
of Having Dyspepsia.
Most physicians, especially in the
northern United States, say that fried
food is responsible for most of the dys
pepsia, especially in the south, where
frying is most prevalent.
This is no doubt true, in a broad and
average way, but it is not necessary
that it should be true. Too much grease
of any kind, and in any way, is cer
tainly bad for the digestion; but the
conclusion must not be too hastily
reached that fried food is necessarily
greasy. Grease for cooking should be
looked upon merely as as a medium for
communicating a high degree of heat.
It is not usually possible to cook things
in water to a higher temperature than
212 degrees, and hence in many cases
it is necessary to cook meats, etc., a
long while at this temperature to get
them done. But it is easily possible to
cook things equally well done in grease
in a much shorter time, on account of
the higher temperature that may be
reached-sometimes 300 to 400 degrees.
The true way to cook in grease is to
get it very hot before introducing the
meat or other article. When it is
dropped in the higher degree of heat
immediately chars the outer surface
and closes the pores, so that the grease
cannot get inside. It is important to
keep the heat up, and not to put the
articles into the grease so fast as to
lower the temperature. When done,
they should be immediately removed
and laid on a cloth to absorb the ad
hering grease.' Many cooks take a
frying pan off the fire with the eggs
or meat in it, all cooked, and leave it
so until served. This is the next best
way to let the grease soak through to
the centre. The very best way to soak
the grease in. and the very best way
to promote dyspepsia is to put the ar
ticles in the frying pan to cook when
the grease is not hot enough.
Frying is generally a most wasteful
manner of cooking, for the reason that
so much of the grease is thrown away
after the article is cooked. This is gen
erally unnecessary. If the frying has
been properly done, the gvease has not
taken up much from the article cooked.
The grease may be poured from the
frying pan into a vessel of hot water,
when most of the foreign matter will
settle and the pure grease will float.
after somewhat washing itself in the
water. It may then be used again and
again with the best results.
There is naturally a smell from any
frying grease. In Europe, where many
kinds of grease and oils are used for
frying, people become accustomed to
the different smells, and do not mind
them. In this country all are accus
tomed to the smell of frying hog lard.
When it was, first proposed to cook
with cotton oil the new smell was ob
jectionable, especially the smell of
badly refined oil, and thus there grew
a prejudice against its use. Arother
cause for bad results with the oil was
the fact that often times the cook
would not wait for the oil to get hot
enough before putting it in the articles.
When using lard, the cook would natur
ally wait for it to melt, and it would
get hot without provoking impatience.
But the oil looks ready when it is first
put in the frying pan, and there is a
temptation to use it too soon. There
has been much steady work done by
those who make cooking compounds
from cotton oil, with a view t) reducing
or disguising the smell. The result has
been most gratifying. There are sev
eral concerns making -h specialty of
oil refined for use in cooking, without
further manipulation. The Wesson Pro
cess company of Savannah, Ga., has
been very successful in this line and
will be glad to mail cook books.
There are also a number of highly
satisfactory cooking greases made
from cotton oil and beef fat, such as
"Palmatena" and "Snow Drift," both
of which products are extensively
manufactured by the Southern Cotton
Oil -Company of the Carolinas and
Georgia -at their works in Savannah.
They are both high class and reliable
products in which the pure cotton seed
oil is used and they resemble lard In
appearance and results, but are more
satisfactory and healthy, and which are
superior to hog lard from every point of
view. That they are much more
la lth ru there can be no doubt.

TO THE VOTERS OF CLARENDON COUN
ty:-Some time ago I announced in THE
MANNING Tnzzs that I would not be a candi
date for any office in the coming election, and
until very recently I had fully intended to pur
sue this course, but recent developments with
personal appeals and petitions (unsolicited on
my part) forces me to reconsider. and I now an
nounce myself a candidate for State Senator
from this county. subject to all the rules gov
erning the Democratic primary and the general
election and will abide the result.
C. N. DAVIS.
TO THE DEMOCRATIC VOTERS: I AM A
candidate for re-election to te State Sen
ate. upon the platform, constitution and rules
of the Democratic party. I have served in that
honorable position one term and feel that I have
given the people a conscientious service.
I am opposed to rings, cliques and combina
tions, and if re-elected will use my best efforts
to resist the encroachments of monopolies that
are fast making themselves manifest by the
combination of corporations. I favor a still fur
ther reduction in our taxes and believe I have a
plan by which Clarendon county can get her
needed improvements without an increase of
the present tax rate.
TO THE WHITE PEOPLE OF CLAREN
don: Qn m worth as a private citizen and
record us a public functionary, to both of which
I invie tihe closest scrutiny of all honest men,
I announce my candidacy for the State Senate.
Our people are wofully misrepresented therein,
and I propose to show It. I believe none of my
competitors are more deserving of promotion
than myself. Some of the very men who aided
in bankrupting the county twice within the last
ten years. so that even now she is too poor to
build a decent jail, to say nothing of other im
provements, have their daggers drawn to repeat
the stab. It Is my duty to make this race; both
our county papers are unfriendly towards me
and from the stump alone can I reach your ear.
Turn out and hear those face to face who would
make the laws to govern you; it will "advant
age more than do you harm."
