Maj. David A. Bradham and Mr.
John K. Breedin left Manning last
Monday morning to enter Washington
and Lee University at Lexington, V a.,
both are going there to study law, and
we wish for both of these studious gen
tlemen a successful career, and we
commend them to the faculty of the
University, and the good people of the
"old college town,'' where the homes
can safely be thrown open to them, as
they are gentlemen.
We note that Prof. W. A. Stucke~y
recently principal of the Moses Levi
Memorial Institute, has been called to
the position of superintendent of graded
schools for the city of Newberrv. This
position pays considerably mo're than
the school here, and a better field for
one who has adopted teaching as a pro.
fession for life. We wish Prof. Stuckey
much success in his new field, and hope
the people of Newberry will appreciate
his faithful service.
We received a letter asking us to
give information with regard to the
father of Ruffin Mitchum, who the let
ter states left Manning about six years
ago. The party wants to know the ad
dress of Ruffin Mitchum's father, alsc
a history of the Mitchum family. There
are a number of Mitchums in Claren
don, but we do not know any by the
name of "Ruffin" who left here about
six years ago, and should any of our
readers know of such a person perhapi
they will be doing a kindness to mnform
Rubfin Mitchum's father that he might
communicate with Miss Belle Webb,

The past week high prices were paid
for cotton, and for several days Man
ning was "side and side with Sumter,
with a merchant-buyer paying highet
prices than the others. We do not know
what to advise about cotton, only to get
it out as quick as possible, bale it it
450 pound bales, and push it on the mar
ket rapidly. The idea of packing 450th
bales is to give the grower the weight
of bagging and ties at the present
prices. The man who puts up a T5(
poxnd bale gains nothing by it,and a 45(
weighn ia merchantable. We hope our
buers here will keep up a spirited bid
ding on the samples that are taker
around, and we believe it is of advan
tage to let every cotton buyer have
chance to bid.
Mr. E. D. Hodge, the temporary chair
man of the county farmers associatior
was in town last Saturday, much en
couraged at the outlook for a thorougi
organization. He is r-eceiving encoun
agement on all sides, and he urges tha
the organizers appointed by him do no
fail in getting up the township clubs
If however a man was appointed an
does not act,it will not deprive any oth
er man in the township who has th
welfare of the farmers at heart tron
calling the farmers together, and or
ganizing without him. He especiall:
urges that the people do not permit an;
cold water to be thrown upon their at
tempt to organize. The last count1
meeting was only a starter and of cours<
nothing more could be done than was
done, but when the delegations comt
from the township clubs, business
will be conducted on better lines. Mr
odge is very enthusiastic, and will be
a hard worker in the cause.
We call special attention to the ad
vertisment of i. F. Epperson the hust
ling merchant of the growing town of
Pinewood. Mr. Epperson is not in
business for his health, and he is ad
vertising through these columns be
cause he realizes the value of its use

worth advertising, and we want our
readers to not only watch these columns
for Eppersan's advertisment, but to

Distress After Eating Cured.
Judge W. T. Holland of Greensburg,
La., who is well and favorably known,
says: "-Two years ago I sutfered greatly
from indigestion. After eating. great
distress would invariably result, lasting
for an hour or so and my nights
were restless. I concluded to try Ko
dol Dyspepsia Cure and it cured me en
tirely. Now my sleep is refreshing and
digestion perfect." Sold by The I B.

So many of those who are in arrears
have made requests that we extend the
time for cutting them off until they can
market their produce, that we have de
cided to extend the time until Ootober
15th, but after that date every person
who is in arrears over one one year will
be stricken from our subscription lists.
We just cannot afford to supply people
with our paper for nothing, it costs us
the cash to pay printers and for mate
rial, and when people are so lax about
paying their subscriptions it is embar
assing to us, because among them are
good men and women who will pay their
debts, and in getting in arrears with us
it is because the amount is small, and
their memories are not jogged as when
the amount is- larger. In complying
with the request to extend the time. we
do so because we are aversed to losing
a single name from our lists and want
to give a full, fair opportunity to our
friends to show whether or not they ap
preciate our efforts to give the people a
first class county newspaper, operated
in the interests of the masses; a news
paper unhampered in its editorial poli
cy, and one that is enlisted in the cause
of the people against the aggressions of
monopolies, trusts and corporate com
bines which are organized to drive out
legitimate competition. If you think
such a paper deserves patronage, pay
up and stand by it, if not toen pay up
what you owe and quit.
"Just in the nick of time our little boy
was saved" writes Mrs. W. Watkins of
Pleasant City, Ohio. "Pneumonia had
played sad havoc with him and a terri
ble couh set in besides. Doctors treated
him, but he grew worse every day. At
length we tried Dr. King's New Discov
ery for Consumption, and our darling
was saved. He's now sound and well."

Chester, Va., Aug. 31, 1903
While I deeply and truly appreciate
the kind expressions of regard and es
teem set forth in the letter of commen
dation dated July 8th, 1903, and signed
by Annie Coskrey, Louise Richbourg,
Sallie Anderso'n and others, pupils of
my senior room last session: and while

a written reply of thanks should be sent

shine as the bright jewels of a crown,

convey to you, my dear pupils, _the pro

these words of praise and approval,
"More to be desired than gold, yea than
much fine gold; sweeter also than honey
and the honey-comb."
Would it were so that I could look in
to your bright eyes again, grasp each
willing hand, hear each familiar, friend
ly voice and enjoy the presence of your'
being as aforetime: Although I shall
soon assume the duties of principal in a
much larger school than yours, yet I
can say from the depths of my soul that
I do not hope to find there a better
scolarship or a greater number of
faithful worke'rs than in the Summerton
graded school, 1902-1903.
But I must now say adieu, a courtesy
which our commencement arrangement
unfortunately forbade teachers and

essor, who is tried and true: bnt ever
remember that all knowledge worthy
the name cometh from the Giver of ev

is access even for the humblest searcher
