pose to do business as business should.
In an editorial last week, regarding
the recommendation of the grand jury,
relating to re-indexing the records of
the clerk of court office we should
have st- ed that not all of the members

are some members of the bar that agree
with us, that there is no absolute nec
essity for the re-indexing of the records.
The business men of this town should
not lose sight of the fact there is a tine
opportunity open to them to induce two
railroads traversing important sections
of this county, to come to Manning. It
will not do to wait to see what somebody
also will do, the idea is to take the in
iative and make some movement look
ing to this end. We think the Intendarnt
should call a meeting of the busin..ss
men to discuss this matter.
A very sad accident occured in Mau
ning yesterday morning on the Har in
tram road. A young getleman from
Florence by the name of Marion Can
non, a son of Mr. E. P. Cannon, was on
his way to the depot, and being late,
and in a hurry he did not notice
Mr. Harvin's engine attached to the
tram trucks, they being coupled by an
eight foot coupling: the young man
started through the space and was
struck by the truck. His right arm
was badly cut, but it is hoped his
wound will not prove serious. When
Mr. Hervin learned of the accident,
he immediately sent for doctors and
the young man who is a friend of the
Breedin family, was taken to the home
of Mr A. H. Breedin where every at
tention will be given him.
Again have we the pleasure of chron
icling a marriage ceremony, which,
like all ceremonies attending the tie
ing of the nuptial knot, are pretty. The
bride beautiful, and the groom hand
some, the attending maids pretty as
pinks, and the young men, jolly good
fellows. On last Wednesday evening
at 6, o'clock the Presbyterian church
in this town was filled to its utmost
seating capacity to witness the mar
riage of N r. Williamr Ashley Avant, a
young, handsome, and popular business
man of Summerton, and Niss Annie
Scott Harvin, a beautiful accomplished
belle of Manning. The church was
tastily decorated, the chandeliers a
mass of chrysanthemums, the cordon,
cutting off spnce for the relatives was
a large rope of chrysanthemums; the
organ was on the rostrum, and it de
corated with green. The ushers were

Mayme Harvin, Messrs Charlie Rigby,
Robert Chandler, George Tindal, Ed
die Horton, Isaac Appelt, and Alex
The maid of honor was..Miss Maud
Brock, sister of the bride, and Mr.
Ashby Richbourg was the best man.
The couples marched up the isles op
osite each other crossing within the
hancel and then taking tneir respec
tive positions with the bride and groom
n the center, the maid of honor and
the best man on either side of them.
Rev. F. W. Gregg the pastor, in con
ucting the service, made it more im
ressive with a discourse on the mar
riage relation, and at the end of the
eremony the best man handed the
inister a ring who in turn gave it to
the maid of honor, who placed it upon
the finger of the bride. Miss Lida
Scarborough presided at the organ,
nd played, the famous Mendelsohns
wedding march. The service was
solemn and impressive, and as the
ouples marched up the isles keeping
time to the slowly played march, it
gave them an opportunity to display
grace and dignity. The bride and her
maids were dressed in street costumes,
nd as soon as the service was over,
the party went immediately to the de
pot to see the bridal couple off. It was
the intention to take a tour to Florida,
but Mr. Avant finding that he could
ot spare the time from his business,
decided to only go as far as Charleston,
nd return home. The writer gives
his best wishes to the young couple
who have just launched out upon the
:atrimonial sea, and hope that their
lives will always be one continued
honey moon. Here is luck to you

The gold medal, known as the "Ap
pelt Medal" to be contested ior by the
children of the Paxville Academy, is
now on exhibition at the store of W. E.
Jenkinson. The medal is of solid gold
triangle in shape, with a photograph
of the donor in the center, and inscrib
ed on the triangle are the wvo'ds
"Punctuality. -Perseverence' Prog
ress." The triangle is encircled with
a wreath of laurels, and is a pendant
from a bar containing the words "A~p
pelt Medal Paxviile Academy."
The object is to stimulate the chil
dren, small and large, with their stud
ies, and give them something to look
forward for. It will be remembered
last summer the editor of this paper
was one of the State exposition com
missioners, and naturally he felt an in
terest in the success of the institutior..
He made several efforts to induce the
school trustees to come togethee to de
vise a plan by which the children of
our county could take advantage ( f
the great' educational opportunity:
only three of the schools responded,
Paxville, Panola, and Pine Grove, a
spirit of antagonism sprung up and. re
sulted in the children being deprived
of something of value, to gratify an un
worthy spirit. Paxville respornded en
thusiastically 1IO0 strong, and the
memory of that trip will ever linger in
the minds of those children. Tihe
writer made up his mind that a com
munity exhibiting such confidence in
him as to confide their children to his
keeping, deserved something to stimu
late those children to delve down
deep into their books whereby :hey
will, in after life appreciate what theyv
saw at the exposition: The medal was
designed by the writer and it is to be
the property of the school to be con
tested for annually. The presentation
will ake place on some occasion in the
near future, the time to be fixed by the
teachers and the trustees. Those de
siring to look at the medal will find it
in one of the show cases in the store of

Bring- ur Job Work to The Times office
Every citizen who feels-an interest
in thc welfare of the children of this
school district must regret the strained
conditions existing in our school.
Harmony is necessary to the well con
duct of any institution of learning, and
if the conditions are such that harmony
will not prevail, the trustees should
take a positive stand, even if in doing
so, thev will have to close the doors,
and order a general reorganization.
There is no time for saving the feelings
of individuals, the children's welfare is
paramount: if the trustees cannot take
a positive stand, then, they should ac
knowledge their weakness and resign.
The children have been getting along
nicely in every department, and now
when every thing seemed so bright, to
have something to obstruct the prog
ress is a great pity. and it begins to
look as if the school has a bad fate
hanging over it. We do not know all
the facts, that is, we have not had both
sides of the present trouble, nor have
we made any endeavor to get at the
inside trouble, because. we did not care
to get in a position where it would be
necessary to make a public statement,
but it is known that there was trouble,
the trustees were called upon to inve
tigate, we were told they divided, two
sustaining, and one condemning, and
since then one of the teachers has re
sined. and some children remain away
from the school.thus lividing the school
into factionsand a divided house must
fall. We hope the trustees will take hold
of -this matter,and handle it with a just
and a firm judgement. It is hardly
probable they will please everybody
nor should they try to do so, but if
they do their duty without fear or
favor, they will have done well. We
want the school, we nc ed the school,
the institution is in our opinion,as mucn
or more necessary than the churches and
if theteachers are not suited,let them go
and get others, the teachers may go,
but the school never, and very much
depends upon the management of this
very deplorable incident, whether or
not the special school district continues.
We want it known that we want the
special district, but we have knowledge
of the feelings of a goodly number who
only want an excuse to vote the special
tax out of existance. Therefore it is
absolutely necessary for the trustees to
set with wisdom in the present matter;
they simuuM not let anything but duty
influence them to favor or to prejudice
Since the above was put in type, we
are informed by a member of the board
of trustees, that the school will con
tinue, and that all of the grades will
How To Prevent Croup.
It will be good news to the mothers I
of small children to learn that croup
can be prevented. The first sign of
croup is hoarsness. A day or two E
before the attact the child becomes
hoarse. This is soon followed by a
peculiar rough chugh. Give Chain
lain's Cough Remedy freely as soon
as the child becomes hoarse, or even
after the rough cough appears, and
it will dispel all symptoms of croup.
In this way all danger and anxiety
may be avoided. This remeday is
used by many thousands of mothers
and has never been known to fail.
It is, in fact, the only remedy that
can can always be depended upon
and that ir pleasant and fate to take.

This ie the season of the year when
the prudent and careful housewife
replenishes her supply of Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy. It is certain
to be needed before the winter is
over, and results are much more
prompt and satisfactory when it is
kept at hand and given as soon as <
the cold is contracted and before it 1
has become settled in the systcm. In
almost every instance a severe cold
may be warded off by taking this
remedy freely as soon as the first in
dication of the cold appears. There.
is no danger in giving it to children
for it contains no harmful substance.
It Is pleasant to take-both adults
and children like it. Buy it and you
will get the best. It always cures.
