There died in this town last Friday a
colored woman whose life was such as
to merit the esteem and affection of a
large number of white people who were
her friends. Adeline Richardson was
an old servant of Rev. James Mc
Dowell, and having been brought up in
his household accounts for her lovable
disposition. Adeline was, we might
say a professional nurse; nature pro
vided her with the necessary attributes
for such a vocation, she was kind, af
fectionate, thoroughly reliable, and a
woman of high sense of honor. The
ladies of her acquaintance loved her,
and her death while not unexpected
was heard with great - sorrow. Dr.
ames McDowell whom she nursed in
hildhood, when informed of her ex
treme illness left his practice at York
rille to be with her, hut he reached

s an experienced dry goods man, and
when he returns we expect he will
show up in the new establishment a.
selection to attract an influx of buyers.
The company is composed of young and
bandsome men, who are starting out in
the mercantile business to win fame
nd fortune, and as Mr. Turner is the
only married man in the concern, much
epends on success, for the others to
get married, therefore, it may be taken
for granted that Mitch Wells, Luther

to work like Trojans to make their
store popular, with the ladies especial
ly, and each one will do his utmost to
The ontlook for business this fall is
good, and our merchants who depend
largely on the cash business are mak
ing ample preparations. They have
already completed their contracts for
l of the staple goods, and therefore, if
otton goods should rise as we all ex
pect on account of high priced cotton,
their customers will get the advantage
of their early purchases. We want our
readers to scan the advertising columns
of this paper, and as they continue to
scan them they will understand who are
the up-to-date merchants catering for
the cash trade. This is one season that
we want our friends to show their faith
by their works. If they believe THE
IES is the people's friend we want
them to demonstrate that belief by mak
ing their purchases from those who by
their advertisements are supporting
the peoples paper. Those who do not
advertise in THE TIHES by their action
say they do not want any trade from the
friends of this paper. See.
Cover the Shame.
A patron of the Moses Levi Memorial
Institute invited us to go into the
building to inspect its class rooms that
we might be enabled to call attention
of council to their condition. We have
not had an opportunity to go, but from
the information -furnished us by this
patron, we would ask the Intendant to
make a personal visit to the building,
nd he will find desks in a badly muti
lated condition, and writing on desks
nd walls that is not only profane but
flthy and obscene, words that should
never be seen or heard by the child of
decent parents. This unfortunate con
dition should be remedied, the walls
nd desks cleaned, and the trustees of
the school ought to make very rigid
rules with regard to such things for the
We are not in position to say when
all of this fifthy stuff was written upon
the walls and desks, for ever since the
school closed, the building has been
oper. a.nd all manner of people had ac
ess to it; we hope there is not a scholar
attending there, who would be guilty of
such reprehensible conduct as to write
words unfit for a decent public to see,
nd who is such a degenerate as to
write language that would be shameful
to acknowledge. It does not make any
difference when this outrage was per
petrated, it has been done, and an
effort should be made to find the guilty
ones for punishment, but in the mean
time this filthy stuff should be erased,
either with paint or soap and water.
We hope the trustees of the school
will adopt a set of rules for the govern
ment of the school, and let one of these
provide for the expulsion of any scholar
guilty of writing obscene language on
the property of the school or about the
school house, whether the same be on
the walls, desks or paper.

Eeerybody's Principal Wanted.
We sincerely hope the new principal
of our school will be pleasing to all of
the patrons: that he will be able to
aratify all of the petty whims of some
very narrow people. The lot of a school
teacher in a town like this is no bed of
roses. If he happens to have a mind of
his own he will surely bring upon him
self the displeasure of some; if he un
dertakes to have discipline, he then
takes the job away from a class of pat
rons who want to run the school, and if
he has no religion, he had better get it,
and that,the kind to suit the controlling
influence. A principal at this place
must be versatile. He must make a pet
of every man's child, and where he
tinds a man who has no children, he
must pet that man, because that child
less man pays a little mite of tax, and
being forced to pay, he is exacting.
We do not believe there is a man living
who can please all of the patrons of this
school and as long as the trustees listen
to an opposition which is worked up,
just so long will Manning be lacking in
a first class school.
We understand that a petition has
been in circulation asking the trustees
not to elect the former principal; why,
we do not know, but inasmuch as a pe
tition was circulated, it is equivalent to
a charge against the man, and we think
it no more than right for the trustees
to inquire into it. In our opinion the
trustees should appoint a day and time,
notify the former principal to be pres
ent,and the signers of the petition also,
and there and then ascertain the rea
sons why these people object. There
may be a misunderstanding, somebody
may have misrepresented the man, and
an explanation from him may be satis
factory to ei erybody. We do not be
lieve in stabbing a man in the back. If
the former principal is not wanted by
any number of patrons there must be a
reason, and it should be known to him
as well as those of us who believe he
has done his duty as well as any princi
pal the school has ever had.

Catarrh of the Stomach.
When the stomach is overloaded; when
food is taken into it that fails to digest,
it decays and infiames the mucous mem
brane, exposing the nerves, and causes
the glands to secret mucin, instead of
the natural juices of-digestion. This is
called Catarrh of the Stomach. For
years I suffered with Catarrh of the
tomach, caused by indigestion. Doc
tors and medicines failed to benedit me
until I used Kodol Dyspepsia Cure.
