IT IS FALSE.
We regret to hear, so early in
the coning campaign, that al
ready false impressions are be
ing made with reference to the
the editor of this paper toward
candidates for office. and right in
the beginning we want it dis
tinctly understood, that we have
had nothing to do,either directly
or indirectly with inducing any
man to become a candidate for
sheriff or any other otfice. Up
on reliable authority we are
told, it is being circulated that
we were instrumental in induc
ing Mr. L. L. Wells to be a can
didate for sheriff, and in order
that we might undeceive our
friends and political enemies too,
we state most positively, that
there is no foundation, in truth,
for such an impression. Mr.
Wells' candidacy was as much a
surprise to us as to the readers
of THE TIMEs. He gave us his
card and his check for five dol
lars, without any knowledge be
forehand on our part that he had
an idea of being a candidate for
sheriff. Ordinarily we would
not take the trouble to make a
denial of this false report, but
we desire to keep out of active
participation in this campaign,
and we want our friends all over
the county to be warned against
reports that are being circulated
which connect us with the candi
dacy of any man. Therefore
whenever, or wherever our name
is connected with the candidacy
of any man, let it be understood,
it is a political trick to prejudice
or aid that man's chances in the
We are not in the race, nor
have we any special interest in
th'e race of any candidate, nor
do we want to have. When the
time comes to vote, we will vote
for the man whose fitness appeals
to our judgement. and we hope
everybody else will do the same.
We hope this is a plain state
ment and that it will be under
stood, so that hereafter when
* a candidate is announced, his
coming out will not be laid at
our door. Let it be presumed
that this is a free country, and
no man has a patent on any of
tice,it is his privilege to announce
his candidacy, and it is the priv
* ilege of the voter to vote for
whom he sees fit, and all the
talk about this man being the
candidate of "Appelt." or Jones,
or Smith, is discounting the peo
Whenever "Appelt" wishes to
induce a man to run for office, he
will not hide it in secrecy,but will
come out in the open, and go to
the man or write to him asking
that he be a candidate, and when
he does so, he will feel honor
bound to openly exert his influ
ence in that candidates behalf,
but until such action is taken by
him, any reports of a man being
"Appelt's candidate" is false.
Col. Jasper Talbert has with
drawn from the congressional
contest in the second district.
He makes a grand stand play for
* the future however, by pulling
out of the way in favor of the
son of Col. Croft. A very pretty
sentiment, but in practical poli
tics it will not work.
The Columbia State has now
upon its staff as special corres
pondent Mr. J. E. Norment, one
o f South Carolina's favorite
writers. Mr. Norment is Gov
ernor Heyward's private secreta
ry, and was for a number of
years,a member of The News and
Courier's staff. It was from his
pen that many readers in this
State received wholesome in
struction and much pleasure.
We can congratulate the manage
ment of The State, upon its ex
cellent business judgement in
securing the services of so good
and reliable a journalist as Mr.
J. E. Norment.
The county chairman has is
sued a call for the clubs to as
semble on the 2:3rd inst., to elect
delegates to the county conven
tion. This is necessary under
the party rules, but if the mem
bers of the clubs do not turn out
to aid in the elections of these
delegates, the purpose of the
club meetings is destroyed. In
our opinion it is the duty of ev
cry good citizen to attend his
club meeting, and see to it
that his club sends a delegation
of representative men, other
wise theehole political machin
ery of our government might as
well be turned over to office
holders, and those seeking office
to formulate such rules as best
suit their individual purpose
without regard for the people's
welfare. The people generally
arc too lax about this matter, and
we are afraid they will not
awake to their duty until a con
dition confronts them that will
arouse their indignation. Do
not wait until then, do your duty
now. and avoid embarassing con
The claim in Washington that
Hearst will capture the delega
tion from South Carolina is dis
puted by several newspapers in
this State. These editors may
be in possession of inside infor
mation, but in our opiion, the
delegation from South Carolina
is an unknown quantity as yet,
and will continue to be until
Senator Tillman breaks his si
lence on the subject, and then
every politician in the State will
open up loudly as "an original."
[f Hearst needs the delegation
from South Carolina, his friends
ave not looked well after his
interests if they have failed to
reckon with the senior Senator,
lie is all powerful when it comes
to selecting a delegation. We
saw this demonstrated, the time
when General Wilie Jones was
:hosen to represent his district
in a national convention, and be
:ause Tillman did not want him
on the delegation, the convention
repudiated the district selection.
Tillman and Jones better under
stand each other now and we
have no doubt but that he would
consent for General Jones to ac
:ompany him to St. Louis. We
wonder why some enterprising
reporter for The State or The
News and Courier has not had an
intervie*& with Senator Tillman,
bo ascertain who he expects to
lake the delegation to St. Louis.

eight of L. & M., and mix six gallons

Meeting Executive Board Santee Baptist
The meeting of the Board was held in
the lecture room of the First Baptist
church, on Tuesday last. and was the
largest, most enthusiastic and most har
monous meeting that has been held
within the past three years. The spirit
of love and brotherliness abounded, and
when we separated, each felt like re
peating that good old hymn, "Blest be
the tie that binds."
Seventeen churches,out of tyenty-five
were represented by the following
brethren: Pastors Huggins, Lide. Con
nors, and Kenney, and laymen J. W.
Davis, H. A. Davis, E. J. Davis, Parker.
Gardner, Tindal, Brogdon, Hodge.
Jackson, Wheeler. Stokes, Kilgore and
Cuttino, B. P. In addition to these
were Secretary T. M. Bailey, of the
Baptist State Mission Board, Dr. C. C.
Brown and five brethren representing
the element known as the Turks. For
some years. there has been some fric
tion in the Hills church, which has
greatly hindered the work there. Af
ter carefully considering the case recom
mendations were made and accepted
which whenscarried into execution,will
relieve the situation and restore the
old church to something like its former
There are three or four weak church
es within our borders, some of which
have no regular preaching for a year or
two. All present seemed to realize the
responsibility resting upon us to give
the gospel to the destitute; so a com
mittee consisting of Brethren Huggins,
Brown and Kilgore was appointed to
co-operate with the State NIission
Board and the said weak churches in
procuring a missionary pastor who will
carry the gospel to the destitute sec
tions of our associations. This commit
tee has already met, and its plans are
being carried into execution. It is
hoped that a man w~ill be in the field
within the next month or two.
After a session of two hours, the
Board adjourned to meet at the call
of the oficeers, Brethren Huggins and
After adjournment, we were invited
to the dining room of the church,where
the ladies had prepared and spread an
excellent and bountiful dinner, second
we believe,to noneof the fine dinners
served by them in days past. The ta
ble was graced by a .goodly number of
them, while others served as waiters,
assisted by Brother Bartow Walsh. If
we may judge by the comments made
by those present, we are assured that
all enjoyed the occasion.-The Sumter

Proper Treatment of Pneumonia.
Pneumonia is too dangerous a disease
for any one to attempt to doctor himself
although he may have the proper rem
edies at hand. A physician should al
ways be called. It should be borne
in mind, however, that pneumonia al
ways results from a cold or from an at
tack of the grip, and that by giving
Chamberlain's Cough remedy th e
threatened attack of pneumonia may be
warded off. This remedy is also used
by physicians in the treatment of pneu
monia with the best results. Dr. W.
J. Smith, of Sanders, Ala,. who is also
a druggist, says of it: "I have been sell
ing Chamberlain's Cough remedy and
prescribing it in my practice for the
past six years. I use it in eases of
pneumonia and have always gotten the
best results." Sol'd by The R. B. Lor

een the stores of S. I. Till and the
lutual Dry Goods Company last Wed
esday. These two stores join, and al
hough competitors, they are friendly
-ivals. and both striving to draw trade
:o Manning. The scene presented was
)me of animation, beauty and good na
ture. Crowds were walking around in
both stores inspecting the goods dis
played, and the Millinery departments
reminded us of a cage filled with chirp
ing canaries. If there is any one thing
that will make a woman forget the
commandment "Thou shalt not covet'
it is a display of pretty drets goods, and
the latest shapes in millinery. But be
fore going into these establishments,
we are struck with admiration at the
display in the windows, which created
much favorable comment for the good
taste exhibited. Till's millinery depart
ment was certainly a credit, to the ladies
who worked so hard to make a pretty
display: success crowned their efforts
and the manner in which they enter
tained the many visitors was indeed
charming. This department was espec
ially arranged for the occasion. The
walls were tastily papered, and every
nook and corner that could bear a dec
oration had it. The hats were so ar
ranged as to show them off to best ad
vantage, and to attract the worshippers
of fashion. The letter T reached up
about ten feet in height, and was fes
tooned and entwined with leaves, fruits
and flowers on a red background, which
was very effective. Miss Layman. in
charge of this department, assisted by
Misses Mottie Till and Janie Ingram,
deserves much praise for their untiring
efforts to see to it that none went away
without seeing and being seen.
The windows of the Mutual Dry
Goods Company were so attractive that
crowds lingered about them a greater
part of the evening. In one was a dis
play of millinery and dress goods. the
ther shoes. hats and gent's furnishings.
Mr. Eddie Horton took great pride in
adorning .the gent's furnishings window
because his partner, Mr. Turner, has
attained some reputation as a window
dresser and it is a case of rivlary be
tween them. Both did well. The dis
play arrangements in the store was
good, dress goods of all kinds were so
laid upon the counters and tables that
they could be inspected without disar
ranging them. so it was with the laces,
embroideries. and other trimmings.
The show cases were filled with many
attractions, and upon the walls and the
hangings a sample of nearly every
thing in the store was on exhibition
The proprietors busied themselves go
ing through the crowd answering ques
tions here. giving prices there. and
making pleasantries to others, they
vere simply kept on the go trying to
entertain their visitors and make them
ill glad they came. These gentlemen
appreciated highly the many kind ex
pressions given to them, and they have
every reason to feel proud of the suc
ess of their enterprise.
But the dazzling spectacle of this
establishment was their millinery
which is presided over by Miss Clary,
charming Virginian, assisted by Miss
\Iittie Wood. another charming milli
2ery enthusiast. This department
vas crowded all the evening with ladies
whose husbands ought to have been at

rother would have given a kingdom

aihilation. remark that he "wished

clamoring for the prettiest of the many

ostly hats there on exhibition. The

Beith h: Kind You Hav Aiways Bought
AN EARLY AIRSHIP.
t Was Built In Englnnd In 1835, but
Wan a Failure.
We are told by Peter Farley, who
wrote as an eyewitness, that in Au
gust, 1835, the Eagle was odicially ad
vertised to sail from London with gov
3rnment dispatches and passengers for
Paris and to establish direct communi
ation between the capitals of Europe.
This early type of airship was 160
feet long, 50 feet high and 40 feet
wide, and she lay in the dockyard of
the Aeronautical society in Victoria
road, near Kensington gardens, then
gjuite a rural spot.
Built to hold an abundant supply of
gas, she was covered with oiled lawn
:d carried a frame seventy-five feet
long and seven feet high, with a cabin
ecured by ropes to the balloon. An
immense rudder and wings or fins on
each side for purposes of propulsion
completed her fittings. The deck was
guarded by netting.
After all this preparation and adver
tisement the Eagle never got beyond
Victoria roa.d, for Count Lennor and
his assistants failed to provide the
necessary zuotive power.
The Barber's Pole.
The origin of the barber's pole, itself
almost now a thing of the past, origi
nated in the days of barber surgeons,
when blood.letting was considered a
panacea for most of the Ills that flesh
Is heir to. The pole was used for the
patient to grasp during the operation,
and a fillet or bandage for tying up-the
arm. When the pole was notin use,
the tape wa tied to it and twisted
round t, and then it was hung up-.as
a sign. At length, instead of -hanging
out the actuai pole used in operations,
a painted one with stripes round At'in
imitation om the genuine article, and
Its bandages was placed over the shop.
