she asked the clerk to tell us, that she

Friday, and human lives made a nar
row escape from death. While cross

afternoon, two wagons and four mules
belonging to Mr. S. P. Oliver came
near being hurled into the lake by the
bridge tumbling in with this load. The
driver, fortunately heard the cracking
of the'timbers beneath him and with
wonderful presence of mind whipped up
his mules and dashed across at full
speed, only to look behind him to see
the falling bridge. This bridge had
been in bad condition a long ti:ne, and
now that it is in an impassible condi
tion we presume the authorities will
see to it that it is immediately repair
ed. We are told that some of the
bridges on the Midway crossing are
also sadly in need of work.

thneg that can be well handled in a
department store. M1r. Horn has on'y
been in Sumter a few years, and by his
methods of doing business has already
attained a large success. His store is
well known to many of the people in
this county where they have made
large purc'hases, and where they will
go again when they go to Sumter. A
purchase in this store, is a customer
made, a rule Mr. Horn and his large
corps of clerks endeavor to carry out.
In connection with this establish
ment is a millinery department over
which presides one of Clarendon's
most popular ladies, Miss Olivia In
gram of Manning. Miss Ingram has
had practical training and is. consider
ed ote of the most expert mnilliners in
this section of the State. Last year
she had charge of a fashionable milli
nery in Georgia. and very flattering
offers for this season, but prefermn to
be close home she accepted a position
with Hor'n Dry Goods Company. and
her work is making its imp~ression
upon the lovers of good taste, style and
beauty. Miss Ingram will be much
pleased if when any Clarcndon people
- to Sumter they wi call to see her.
One of the practical advertising plans
these days among wide-awake mer
cants is to have select days for the
priPose of displaying goods, in order
that the trade might see for themselves
the "new things' brought in, and the
latest styles. This custom was started
in Manning by that energetic and tire
less merchant W. E. Jenkinson, and he
has never failed to give the people a
good show. Last Thursday evening,
although the weather was inclement a
good crowd visited his store and they
were well paid for their visit. The
store was briliantly lighted, and most
tastily decorated: every department
made a big show and there is no gain
saying it Jenkinson has an establish
ment that any town can feel proud of.
The dry goods display was so arranged
that one could by walking through
form a good idea of what was in stock.
and when the millinery department
(bower of lovliness we should say) was
reached. where Miss Coppedge with
her corps of ladies attired in evening
dress did the honors, and held a seance
with the women who lingered long and
longingly over the pretty hats. boas
and other sources of man's woes, and
tribulations, while the chumps of hus
bands stood about smiling, come-lets
go-home-smiles. and silently meditat
ing that "man is but few days" and yet
all manner of things are thrown in his
path to make his trials harder to bare.
He is asked by that arch-schemer Jen
kinson in the presence of his fellow
conspirators in evening dress, "how do
you like my display this evening?" and
like the express messenger who is held
up by a bandit, without hesitation he
rolls his eyes toward the feminine imps,
and almost enthusiastically exclaims
" oh: it is beautiful, and things are real
cheap" .Jenkinson gives the wink to
his cohorts, and they seized upon this
trembling Anias. and tell him how
this hat would suit his wife. and that
one his daughter. and the ping-pong
would be so cute on that little darling
Mary. and the poor wretch is 'orced
by sheer fright to souze his hand down
into his jeans so deep and hard that in
bringing up the coin he brings tobacco
crumbs along with it, and his dear,
sweet, loving and considerate wife
looks on with a calm dignity, and proud
of the man she has fastened to her
apron strings. Jenkinson's opening
continued the popular place the next
day. The crowds continued to throng
his store and everybody voted his
opening a great success.
A little further down S. I. Till also
had an opening, and while his dry
goods stock is not as large as some, he
ertainly made a nice display, and the
prices he offers made a great impres
sion on his visitors. Till's millinery is
presided over by Miss Moore of Balti
more, and when we say she understands
her art we do so sincerely, because we
claim to have had much experience in
paying for this line of merchandise and
if experience is the best teacher, then
we fell our right to claim a diploma of
graduation. We were delighted with
Miss Moore and her array of hats, es
pecially :Miss Moore and especially her
hats. The attention shown us and our
purse was almost touching, and before
we got out we felt like we had been
"touched." Miss Moore's department
is without doubt an attraction. Her'
trimmings are the very latest styles
and there is something in her work
which shows the master-hand. Those
who call on this lady will be much
pleased with her and her work.
In the postoffice block M1r. D. Hirsch
man gav3 the public an exhibition of
his art at store-dressing. He had his
store very attractively arranged in
bazaar fas'hion, and his goods showed
up to great advantage. His millinery
department was the attraction for the
ladies, and in groups, or bunches as
you please, they were there gossiping,
commenting, and Oh! how sweeting,
and "just look there, Mirs. Blank, that
woman's skirt is too short behind, and
her placquet is wide open, some people
are so careless with their dress when
they go out." The chatter and the
clatter of women voices was as sooth
ing to a man's nerves as fileing on an
old rusty saw. The hat display was
good. 'The ledies were delighted with
it, and most of them promised to give
titr order, and many of them did.
Mrs. Hirschman and her sister Miss
Paget are expert milliners and their
display is a guarantee of a good busi
ness this season.
A Typical South African Store.

River, Cape Colony, conducts a store
typical of South Africa, at which can

verbial " needle to an anchor." This
store is situated in a valley nine
miles from the nearest railway sta
tion and about twenty-five miles
from the nearest town. Mr. Larson
says: "I am favore4d with the custom
of farmers within a radius of thirty
miles, to many of whom I have sup
plied Chamberlain's remedies. All
testify to their value in a household
where a doctor's advice is almost out
of the questioni. Within one mile of

In this vale of joy and tears there are
happen ings romantic and dramatic.
We go to the theatre, and there listen
to a story of family separation and re
union. The dramatist so well paints
his word picture, until, while under the
influence of the player's skill, we im
agine the story real and often find our
selves with moistened eyes. But right
here in our own town on last Monday
night there came upon the family of
. Thomas Nimmer a surprise which
for romantic reality and dramatic ef
fet would not be excelled on the stage.
1any years ago in far away Syria
Stephen 'Dowe the father of Mrs.
Thomas Nimmer and MIiss Nellie
Stephens, decided to try his fortune in
America, but his wife would not give
up her native land even to follow her
husband. Dowe came and br'inging
with him his eldest daughter, M1arie,
thea a child twelve years of age, now
Mi's. Nimmer; later, afteir meeting
with fair success, lie trn.:ed by letter to
get his wife to come on, but still she
would not, but sent over 31iss Nellie.
Years rolled by, the two daughters in
a distant land grew up, one married,
became the mother of several children,
the other, a handsome young lady, and
the old man leading a husbandless life
in Charleston with age fast creeping
upon him. The wife 12,000 miles away
without notice or warning decided to
join her long separated husband; she
took her two remaining daughters, and
after traveling many days and many
nights a distance of about 1.2,000 miles,
through strange and unknown lands,
and then over a world of sea, the weary
party reached MIan aing last Monday
night. Not being able to speak the
language, they experienced many
difficulties in getting here, but when
they arrived. Policeman Thames saw
them at the depot, and seeing they
were foreigners. he brought them to
Nimmer's store. Mr. Nimmer had
never seen his wife's mother, but he
recognized the party as being Syrians
from their dress and general appear

was. and handed him a letter which
after reading it, he took the travelers
to his home and ushered them into the
presence of his family. Neither Mrs.
Nimmer nor Miss Nellie recognized
their mother. and after some little
time at looking at each other, Mrs.
Nimmer recognized the mother and
then the eldest girl as her sis
ter. Then it dawned upon them who
their strange visitors were, and the
scene became affecting; there was
a mingling of tears and joy, of fond
embraces and stares, the family were
late in retiring and none slept scarcely
a wink, wondering if it was all a

Do We Need Ornaments?
It is suggested to give the magis
trate at Manning a constable, and re
lieve the Sheriff of acting as his con
stable. This in our opinion, would
virtually be making the sheriff's office
a sinecure,-drawing a salary for ac
tually doing nothing but to send out
postal cards three times a year to noti
fly jurors of their having been drawn
on the jury. If the sheriff is to be re
lieved from doing the constable work
for the magistrate at the court house,
then reduce his salary sufficiently to
pay a constable for the work. Why
should the sheriff get $800 a year for
criminal work, when, outside of set
ting up in the court house during court,
to occasionally cry out "silence in court"
all that he has to do is to notify the
jurors, and this is done by mail-there
is absolutely nothing more for him to
do for his $800 a year. In civil mat
ters, serving complaints, attachments,
and other processes, he gets pay from
the people having the work done and
not one cent of that goes to the county.
Relieve him of the constable work and
the taxpayers would simply be paying
$800 a year for a man to sit in an office
with his feet cocked up on a table with
nothing to do-an ornament. As one
of Clarendon's taxpayers we protest
against any such thing; the people are
not willing to pay for ornaments, and
if the present sheriff, who was elected
to the office under the present law
isn't satisfied with the bargain he made
with the people they, we believe will
release him, and permit him to resign.
We believe there will be an effort to
effect this change, but we are satisfied
the Clarendon delegation will be di
vided on the subject, however it is

TE ADVANTAGES WICH ACCRUE
TO THE FARMERt.
Some of the Profit Hie Realizes by the
Establishment of Cotton Seed Oil Mills.
No manufacturing Industry stands
so close to the farmer as .the cotton
seed oil mills. The interest of the two
are mutual and inseparable. A very
large part .of the products of the oil
mills is now returned to the farm and
practically all of It in some form can
The mill prcvides a profitable market
for the surplus seed, and returns the
product to the farmer, with greatly
enhanced value in a finished condition.
While the larger part of the business
between the mill and the farmer Is
conducted on a basis of barter and ex
change, It does not actually differ
much In results from the toll system of
the corn mill.
The oil mill purchases the seed In
the open market, and sells its products
in the same way, but ultimately, all
of the hulls and meal should get back
to the farms from which the seed were
shipped. While this Is now the result
in many cases, It Is not as common or
general as the practice should be. Ev
ery pound of these two products pro
duced in the South should be returned
to the land, either as fertilizer ap
plied direct, or stock feed, the latter
much to be preferred, as their value
in that way Is Immensely Increased.
About 1830 a cotton seed oil mill was
established at Columbia, S. C. The
historian of the time only considered It
of sufficient Importance to congratu
late the "public-spirited"~ citizen who
had enterprise enough to establish the
business, but did make the further
comment that the owner "'expressed
from cotton seed a very fair grade of
edible oil." No further reference is
made to this beginning of the busi
ness, and It can only be Inferred that
the Improper handling of the product,
or the prejudices of the people against
this "edible oil," prevented It from be
ing successful. In 1860 Aldigee
found thousands of tons of
seed dumped on the commons, and
placed under guard to prevent the
cows from eating them, as they were
regarded as poisonous to catta.
From such conditions has grown a
magnificent Industry that has added
millions 'to the value of Southern
farms, Increased the traffic of the rail
roads, established an Immense foreign
trade with this country, earned fair
returns for its promoters, while giving
employment to thousands of men at
remunerative wages, many of whom
otherwise would be idle at the season
when their work Is required at the
In all of this development the great
est benefits have been derived by the
farmers. The mills have taken the seed
which prior to their establishment,
were either lost entirely or wastefully
used, and converted them into valuable
products, easily and economically
handled, resulting in the cheaper pro
duction of crops, and increased yields
Raising and fattening cattle has been
one of the interesting features of this
development. The fattening of cattle
In the South for market, outside, per
haps, of the Texas ranges, was un
known before the extensive use of cot
ton seed hulls and meal. At present,
almost every neighborhood Is raising
a few head of cattle for the butcher
on this feed, and In many sections,
numbers of cattle are being fattened
In this way. As this business increases
it will be followed by the erection of
packing houses in the South with all
the advantages of such Industries.

In buying or raising cattle to be fat

Whose Is It?
The household of Mr. J. N. Rigg!
a respectable farmer living aboul
three miles west of Manning, wa!
put in commotion about two o'clock this
morning, by the discovery of a new
born white babe in his piazza. The in
fant was fairly well clad, in a basket
ad with it was a five dollar bill and
silver quarter. One of the childret
beard the babe crying and called Mrs.
Riggs to listen to the strange noise
Mrs. Riggs heard the noise and being
a mother of several children hersel
was familiar with such sounds, she go1
up and went out, picked up the baske
and in it was the foundling. Mr
Riggs went into the yard and discover
ed tracks made by a woman and he
followed the tracks to a place abou
400 yards and there saw where a bug
g had turned around. He with tw<
n'eighbors followed the tracks unti
they found where it stopped at a hous<
in the neighborhood; it was the onl;
track on the road and made after th<
rain. Mr. Riggs is naturally annoyei
by this incident, and says that he doe
not know what to do, and was in towi
this morning trying to find out whethe
he could not get the authorities to tak
charge of the foundling, that he has
plenty of his own to look after. H
will prosecute the mother of this in
fant if he can prove it on her. Tb
