The Council has very wisely enacted
an ordinance prohibiting the riding of

Now let them go a little farther in

turn a street corner.
We heard a prominent citizen of an
other town from an adjoining county tell
one of our merchants that his wife read
his advertisement in THE MANNING

store and buy for her some fine dress
goods she saw advertisel. Then tell us
advertising doesn't pay.

doing something to mark him 'for

have ever heard of frost chopping out
a cotton crop to a stand.
The Council's report is in this issue,

The voting contest, like everything

,use to swing on to their brownies. A
man who has the welfare of the com
unity at heart, and the proper appre

?ho wins in the ring contest, and he
vill do all he can to encourage a heavy
vote to raise by this means as much
money as possible.
We have an institution in this town
which should receive encouragement.
We speak of the local laundry. It is
20t the proper spirit to send laundry
)ff to Charlotte, and other places, when
he work can be done here just as well.
he writer has given the local laundry
full and a fair test, and with~ the ex
~eption of the first week under its pres
at management, we have been pleased
vith the work turned out, and regard
t as good, if not better than the
~oreign work. We, therefore urge our
eaders to stop sending their laundry
~way, and give the local laundry the
ncouragement it should have. The
more patronage it gets the better it
wvil be able to employ good help, and
the better work it will turn out.
There was a lively chase given a
aegro last Saturday afternoon, who

member of the chain gang, stole the
sack of corn, and attempted to sell it at
Legg & Hutchinson's stables, but Bal
Lard found it out in time to stop the
sale, and went to look for the police. In
few minutes Policeman Huggins
made his appearance, and Goodman
broke and after a hot chase by a crowd,
snd closely followed by Alderman Dick

Goodman proved .himself to be fleet

Last Monday Messrs. JTohn Nexsen
of Williamsburg and R. H. Callahan of
E~ingstree spent the day in Manning.
Both of these gentlemen are represent
tive citizens and are identified with
the progress of their communities.
This was Mr. Callahan's first visit to
ur town and he was impressed with
the progressive business spirit, and
while he reluctantly admitted that we
were ahead of Kingstree, he claimed
that his town had caught the spirit and
would soon lead Manning a chase. Mr.
Callahan is a close observer and a thor
ouh business man, and it will not sur
prise us to hear of his starting some
enterprises in Kingstree similar to
those he saw on his visit to Manning.
At any rate we hope Mr. Nessen will
bring'him back again.
There is a petition being circulated
in this town by some young ladies,
urging our merchants to stop selling
cigarettes, and it is being pretty gen
erallv signed, just the same as most
an other kind of a petition. Very few
will decline to sign a petition, especial
ly if presented by a young lady, most
of signers do not even rend the paper,
and a petition can be secured for al
most "any old thing.'' This paper was
presented to the writer, who declined
to sign it. not that he favors cigarettes.
but because he thinks it useles to ask
ourlocal merchants to stop selling an
article that they will not heed, and if
they did. what 'would it amount to in
theway of stopping the use of cigar
ettes? There is about as much chance
to dip up the Atlantic ocean with a
pitchfork. as there is to stop the sale of
cigarettes by this means. Now. if those
who are urging this reform will get up
a general petition to the Legislature
to enact a law prohibiting the sale of
cigarettes in this State they w-ill be do
ing something practical and if properly
urged, will accomplish good.
The Harmony Presbytery met at
Hepzibah church April 5th, and ad
journed April 8th. Present 12 ministers
and 16 elders. Rev. J M. Holladay was
elected Moderator. The opening ser'
mon was preached by Rev. W. G. Ne
ville D. D., the President of Clinton
College, by request of Dr. W. J. Mc
Kay the retiring Moderator. The at

coming from Bishopyille. Mt. Zion, and
Hebron churches. Much routine wvork
was accomplished. The following were
elected commissioners to the General
Assembly. to mcet in Fort Worth,

Porter was elected in his place. The
Presbytery meets next October in Mt.
Zion church. of which Rev. V. Ri.
11 e would suggest that counsel re
quire one policeman to meet the trains
to preserve order at the depot and to
protect passengers. either going or
coming. from the crowd of people who
have a1 habit of meeting the trains and
blocking the way to and from the
trains. This practice has become an
intolerable nuisance, especially Sunday
afternoons. Men, women and boys flock
to the depot and block up the platforms,
and when the train is approaching,
they crowd about the car steps so that
it is with great difficulty and annoy
ance that passengers wisbing to board
the train or wishing to getmtT can not
do eithei'. If a policeman was stationed
at the depot diiring train time this nui
sance would be abated and the travel
ing public will appreciate it.

The reports from the township organ
izers for the Cotton Growers' Associar
tion in this county are not at all en
couraging. The meetings were to have
been held in each township last Satur
day, but owing to the very short notice
and also the indifference on the part of
the farmers generally. very few meet
"ings were held, or if they were. few re
ports have been sent in. Mt. Zion sent
in 21 names: Manning had no meet
ing: Paxville did not organize, and
Harmony, while it failed to meet, the
farmers in that township signed the
pledge with only two exceptions. The
other townships have not reported.
But notwithstanding the difficulty in
getting the farmers to organize, from
what we can learn there is a general
reduction in the cotton acreage and an
increase in the grain acreage through
out the county.

The ring contest is beginning to
awaken considerable interest, so far,
none of the married ladies have been
voted for, but before the contest closes
we look for an avalanche of votes for
them. The ballot boxes are placed in
all of the stores, and the store turning
out the most votes shows up two things:
the popularity of the establishment,
where people frequent to make their
purchases. and next. a pa:riotic inter
est manifested by those in that store
towards a public cause.
Those who are patronizing the ballot
boxes are contributing to. a means
which will make an indellible impres
sion upon this community, and the
good fruits to be gathered therefrom
will be of lasting benefit. Everybody
should warm up in interest, and make
the contest lively. The actual money
value of the ring should not be taken
into consideration, but the cause for
which it represents is worthy of our
fullest interest. Mianning is as patriotic
as any other town of its size in the
State, its people are as public spirited,
and whenever a worthy object has pre
sented itself, the people of this place
have always responded nicely.
We believe by the time the contest
closes May 1st~there will be a nice little
sum of money to supplement the town's
appropriation and the private subscip

Smith-Vaughn Marriage At Mullins.
Mulins, April .1.-For the past
week Mullins has been in a se. Gal whirl.
The event was the marriage of a popu
lar young couple, that of Mr. Herbert
E. Vaughn and Miss Loulie Smith.
The groom is a young man of inuch
popularity, having come to Mullins
about four years ago from South Bos
ton, Va., to engag 2in the tobacco busi
ness. The bride is the daughter of Mr.
S. E. Smith.
In honor of the occasion a stag din
ner was tendered the groom and his
attendants at the residence of Mr. and,
Mrs. John B. Boatwright on last Mon
The decorations were pink carna
tions and pink candles with pink
~sades upon the candleabra, carrying
out a very pretty color scheme. The
dinner was served in seven courses and
the menu was choice and elaborate.
Those present were: Messrs. H. L.
Boatwright of Danville. Va., Giles
Winstead, E. C. Rogers, S. E. Smith,
.Jr., C. F. Gilchrist. John B. Boat
wright, and Herbert E3. Vaughn.
The next on the program was a re
ception given by Mr, and Mrs. S.. E.
Smith, the parents of the bride. The
decorations in the reception hall were
pink and green, consisting of pink
roses and garlands of ivy. In the parlor
the colors were yellow and green and
in the dining room green and white.
The company consisted of members
of the family of the bride and groom
and their 'attendants. Among those
present were: Miss Loulie Smith. the
bride-elect, attired in a dress of blue
crepe de chine: Miss Alma Smith, Mrs.
John G. Slaughter. Miss Adeile Smith,
Miss Clara Smith. Mrs. R. R. Love,

the rettiest features of the marriage
was the manner in which the little
flower girl, Miss Marion Boatwright,
of Danville, Va., niece of the groom,
acted her part.

NED MACK TO HANG.
The Commission Says That He Is Not Insane.
The Commission's Report.
Ned Mack will be hanged on the 28th
of April, two weeks from today, says
The State of April 14. The commission
which examined into the alleged lack
of mentality of the negro found that
there was nothing to prevent the law
from taking its course. Although the
commission signed its report Tuesday,
for some reason or other it was not
made public until yesterday.
The oflicial report to the Governor
"In compliance with your directions
we have this day examined Edward
Mack, colored, now confined in the jail
at Manning. From a personal exami
nation of the prisoner we have no rea
son to believe -hat he is of unsound
mind at this tinme and that he is of av
erage intelligence for one of his race.
"From the examination of several
person who have known him for a pe
riod of fifteen years, we are of the opin

period up to the commission of the
This is signed by Dr. J. W. Babcock
of Columbia, Dr. Julius A. Mood of
Sumter, Dr. S. C. Baker of Sumter, Dr.
Dr. W. M. Brockinton of Manning and
Dr. Chas B. Geiger of Manning. The
prominence of these physicians and the
fact that the report is signed unani
mously shows that there can be no
doubt of the negro's shamming.
Dr. Babcock stated unofficially yes
terday that the negro did too much act
ing for one who is really demented.
When told to put his heels together he
would put his toes together, showing
that he really understood the command,
but pretended not to. When given a
lead pencil and told to write a letter,
he made a straight mark, indicating
that he was not insensible to the uses
to which the pencil. might be put.
These and other things apparently triv
ial indicated that the negro is not so
foolish as might appear to those who
are not expert in examining the men
Ned Mack was to have been hanged
at Manning on the 31st of March, but
at the very last moment Governor Hey
ward received an urgent appeal for a
respite that the negro's state of sanity
might be inquired into.
The telegram which Governor Hey
ward had sent to the solicitor and the
judge upon the receipt of the petition
was as follows: "Petition presented for
commutation sentence Ned Mack from
Clarendon county. Grounds given do
not impress me. Execution takes place
31st inst. Unless you and Solicitor Wil
son request respite in order investiga
tion may be made, I will refuse same."
Ned Mack started out to be a despe
rado. Last December he went hunt
ing with two companions, and meeting
his father-in-law in the woods killed
the old negro, whose name was Dan
Connors. Linton Butler, another ne
gro, remonstrated at such murderous
onduct and Mack shot him in the arm.
He also fired at a third negro wiLcm he
met in the road. The murderer was at
large for two weeks. and finally gave
