Wecall attention to a very pitiful
case in our town. There is a colored
woman called "Crazy Cornelia" that
can be found roaming the streets near
lv every night in all kinds of weather,
and very thinly clad. We think it the
duty of council to see that this poor
creature is taken care of. We think
her harmless so far as hurting anybody
is concerned, but we believe she is
dangerous to herself, and humanity de
mands that she should be looked after.
The school library proposition will
be a success. We have been assured
of several who will join us in
making up $100 for the school libra

of ten to contribute .$100. This does
not prevent others from contributing
smaller sums, and to have a good libra
rv it will take more than $100. There
fore we propose for ten men to give
$100 and the rest of the money to be
raised in smaller contributions. This
library is for the school children and
every parent should feel interested.

At the Institute last evening Hon.
Waiter M. Chandler of New York under
the auspices of the Manning Lyceum
Association, delivered to a fine audi
ance, a lecture. His subject was, "The
Trial of Jesus From a Lawyers Stand
point." "A lawyers standpoint" need
not necessarily mean the truth, but it,
does mean an argument based upon the
records. Mr. Chandleridisplayed three
things; a fine presence, a thorough ac
quaintance with sacred and profane his
tory, and a magificent flow of language,
so phrased as to reveal a scholarly ora
tory. The treatment of his subject was
pleasing indeed, and to the student of
history it was an intellectual treat. We
are free to confess, than there was a
profoundness about the discourse which
at times was out of our reach, for lack
of Biblical information, and at times
we thought we detected a tinge of skep
ticism, but this we attribute to the dis
course having as its premise the doctrine
of the new testiment gospels. His trib
ute to the Jewish race was gracefully
made, and his parallellisms of ancient
and modern law bristled with strong
points impressively put.

This lodge has doubled its membership
within the past two years, and much of
the credit is due its Worshipful Master
Mr. J. M. McRoy who is a mason "from
his heart." We have attended several
meetings of this lodge and it was a real
pleasure to be with the brethren. On

growing larger every day, and whici
council's attention has been called t
several times. We are told that when,
ever a suggestion for the town's im.
provnent is made through these col
umns, it has the effect of making some
of the council retort that, "they" and
"not we, are running the town." 0
course they are"running the town" and
will continue to do so as long as others
will not permit themselves elected, but
whether "they are running the town or
not," it is a very narrow view to take
when a citizen who pays more taxes
than the individual members of council
calls attention to evils which should be
remedied. The lake on Railroad Ave
nue, if not filled up soon will be entitled
to a name and we know of none more
apprcpriate t h a n Dont-Give-a-Dam
Lake. This body of water is surround
ed by land upon which taxpayers live,
and is situated within the corporate
limits of a town whose council don't
seem to "give-a-dam" whether those liv
ing upon the land which surrounds this
body of water get sick or not. At this
season of the year the odors from Don't
Give-a-Dam Lake are not as bad as they
were in the summer, and we do not
think there is as much danger of fever
now as there was then, but the place is
as deserving of attention as are the side
walks where work was done when it
was not absolutely necessary. If coun
cil can stand leaving this unsightly mud
hole without work, because we suggest
it to be filled up, we will have to.

The Citizen's Band gave a concert
last Thursday evening which deserved
the attendance of the entire community
but we regret to say there was a very
small turnout, presumably on account
of the cold weather, and the lack of ad
vertisement. The young men did not
received the hearty encouragement
which is given to similar efforts in oth
er towns, and we suppose this can be
attributed to a narrow spirit some peo
ple hold, that nothing deserves patron
age which does not inure to the benefit
of their church. The young men of this
town are making herculean efforts to
give us a first class band, and when
they give a concert where there is ad
mission fee attached there should be as
large a turnout as when they give a
free concert. We notice whenever
they play on the court house square.
the whole push takes advantage of it,
but let them go to the Institute aad
charge a quarter, somebody wants to
know right off where the proceeds, and
if it is not for something they are in
terested in, they stay away.
The concert last Thursday evening
was the best the band has ever given,
and to lovers of music it was a treat.
Miss Nettie Weinberg added greatly
to the execution of the musical num

There came to Manning last Monday
morning, a woman who claims to be
Mrs. Lena Britt from Williston, Fla.,
a childless widow, and her business was
to marry Ben Lloyd of this town, whom
she met and woed in Florida about four
months ago, The woman went to the
Baptist parsonage, and sent for Lloyd,
after a short conference, he procured a
horse and buggy, and took her to his
The woman is of slight stature, aged
about 45 years, and claims to be a
daughter of a Dr. Gaillard of Charles
ton, and connected with some of the
best families in this State; she has twc
places in Florida and one at Pendleton,
S. C. When told by Lloyd's father that
Ben had nothing, she replied, it made
no difference, that she had a plenty for
both, and came here to marry him.
The coming of this bewitching widow~
was a surprise 1to Lloyd. He says that
when he was at Williston, the lady and
himself boarded at the same hotel, and
frequently met, that several times she
endeavored to make him promise tc
marry her, but he never did. and she
placed in his hands a piece of property
to sell, and when he got a purchasem
she re'fused to sign the papers, then he
pulled out, but before that transaction,
he took quite sick and she was very
attentive to him. which made him feel
so grateful, that he could not ruthless
l throwv down her imnportunities tc
marry her, but the refusing to sign the
papers gave him a good excuse tc
ler.ve. He told her at the time he did
not intend to mar-ry her, but after he
got home a correspondence was struck~
up an appointment made to meet at
Lake Cityv, which failed, and then he
tompd writing to her, which he thinks
precipitated her trip to Manning. He
was surprised, and when he went intc
the parsonage she met him cheer
fully, told him she was glad to see him
which was not reciprocated, but fear
ing a scene he took her out to hih
father's home where they could have a
"heart to heart talk" about the matter
uppermost in her mind. Lloyd says he
never promised to marry the womar
and does not intend to-but.

Qualities of Chamberlain's Cough Reme
Ashburnham, Ont., April 18, 1903.-I
think it is only right that I should tell
Vou what a wonderful effect Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy has produced.
The day before Easter I wrs so distress
with a cold and cough that i did not
think to be able to take any duties the
next day,as my voice was almost choked
by the ecugh. The same day I received
an order from you for a bottle of your
Cough Remedy. I at once procured a
sample bottle, and took about three
three doses of the medicine. To my
great relief the cough and cold had
completely disappeared and I was able
to preach three times on Easter Day. I
know that this rapid and effective cure
was due to your Cough Remedy. I
make this testimonial without solicita
tion, being thankful to have found
such a God-sent remedy

Letter to J. L Wells.
Dear Sir; You'd strike it rich if you
could find a way to shave your custo
mers in less time, for less cost, and
make the shave last twice or three
times as long.
You wouldn't shave the same parson
so many times, or get so much of his
money; but the whole town would be
talking about you,and everybody would
come to you for a shave.
Devoe lead-and-zinc is exactly that in
paints. It takes fewer gallons, and it
wears longer. Costs less for the job,and
you don't have to do it again for years
and years--six years at least.
"Fewer gallons; wears longer."
Takes fewer gallons to paint a houso
with Devoe lead-and-zinc than with
mixed paints: and it wears longer than
mixed paints'or lead-and-oil.

our work is seen in the array of holiday goods
that we are now showing.
The Assortment is Endless.
In extent and variety our stock far exceeds any
thing ever seen here before.
While the stock is so large, probably the most
distinctive thing about it is that everything is of
worthy quality-is worth giving. Worthiness
was the test applied to everything when selec
tions were being made.
Buying such an unusually large stock we are
able to make a big saving in the prices. We were
also able to pick up some very decided bargains.
All of this saving we give you the advantage of.
It Must be Seen.
We don't want to tell you-we want you to come
and see for yourself. While it will be impossible
- to exhaust it before Christmas, still there -are a
number of bargains that will surely be picked up
by the early shoppers. Come early while the as.
sortment is complete and avoid the usual worry
that always comes when the choosing is put off
until the last minute.
Here are a few of the lines.
