In the recent examination for the
Winthrop scholarships. dissatisfactior
has arisen, and the matter has been re
ported to the President of Winthrol
college, with the request that a nev
examination be held. The complain
comes from Mr. T. J. Tisdale whose
daughter, a very bright young lad;
and a hard student, spent the past ye-.
at Winthrop where she stood well, an<
~at the local examination her mark
turned out far below those made at thb
college. Mr. Tisdale claims that th<
couaty board did not attend 'te exam
inasion, and that when all the girl
finished and retired from the room
Surerintendent Holladay remained il
the room with his own daughter and
whether he did so or not, he could
have aided her with her papers, sh<
being the successful apulicant. It i
unfortunely embarassing to Superir
tendent Holladay that the successfu
applicant was his own daughter, an
that the county board was not in atten
dance. He says he took all of the pa
pers and complied with the law an
that he did not aid his daughter or i
any way show partiality.
We understand that steps will D
taken in the near future to have peti

Supervisor to call an election unde

idea of ascertaining the-wishes of iM
majority,in our opinion it should not b,
hitched on to candidates for office, anc
thus make liquor the sole qualificatior
for office. Unless the liquor questioO
'is divorced from candidates, it Will
never be properly and fairly tested'
therefore we say if the questioll is to
come, let it come when it can be tested7
upon its merits.

When in Manning last, Hon. John L.
McLaurin visited the harness manu
facturing establishment of Mr. E. J.
Russell, and gave an order for a saddle.
The saddle was made after the style of
a famous patented make, and all who
looked at it said it was a splendid piece
of workmanship. We received a letter
'from Mr. McLaurin containing a check
to pay for the saddle, and in this letter
he says "The saddle is a splendid piece
of work, I don't see how he made it for
$18,000. I enclose check which please
hand the maker with my thanks, and
say to him that it is more than I ex

A negro bov by the name of Mott

When Mr. Bradley and his wife re

but the boy had left. Mr. W. T. Sprott,

train at Jordan Monday morning and
found the boy at Wilson's. caught him,
and brought him to Manning. On be

was found on his person, and he con

the boy to jail for court.
It is always a great pleasure to us to
express our appreciation of the atten

from the northern markets where he
spent several weeks selecting and buy

Dry Goods Company has been in busi

presented us with a John B. Stetsou
hat. We feel proud of this gift, not
only because the John B. Stetson hats
are reputed to be the finest made. but
because of the kind motive prompting
the gift. The Mutual Dry Goods Com

stock, and they sell them at a price
fixed by the manufacturer for the
world over. This concern has added
increased capital, with a view to be
better enabled to reach out for more
trade, and a visit to their store is all
that is necessary to convince all that the

No.16 near Puddin Swamp, and unless
the matter is adjusted it may prove
serious. It seems that a petition was
filed with the county superintendent of
education praying for the reappoint
ment of the old board of trustees, which
was composed of L. B. Gibbon, T;-J.
Gibbon and T. M. Beard: this petition
was largely signed, and the county
board of education made the appoint
ment accordingly. As soon as the .ap
pointment was made known considera
ble dissatisfaction was manifested, the
trouble continued brewing and culmi
nating in an open charge of forgery.
A number of the parties whose names
appear upon the petition claim their
names were placed upon the paper
without authority. and against their
wishes An affidavit was made before
Magistrate Sellers, and a warrant- is
sued, charging T. M. Beard with for*
gerv. The case was called last Friday
butMr. Beard asked for a continuauce
until Thursday. in order that he may
secure counsel. We hope the people of
that district will adjust the matter, as
it has been the practice with a majori
ty of the schools to be very lax aboul
the selection of trustees.
A Former Clarendonian Interviewed.
Mr. H. B. Tindal, of Greenville, Vice
President of the South Carolina branch
of the Cotton Association, was here last
Monday, and he is greatly impressed
with the work of the committee at
Asheville. He attended the umeeting
togeter with Hon. John L. McLaurin,
of Bennettsville; Messrs. 0. C. Scar
borough, and S. Rutledge, of Summer
ton, and he says it was a very large
body of business men, whose soul object
was the protection of the southern cot
ton growers' interests. He says there
were present representatives from the
manufacturino and money centres, as
well as from all of the cotton growing
States. The discussions were all goo
humored, but throughout the entire
proceedings there was manifest a de
termination to bring about a value for
cotton, nearer to actual value than has
He said there were men present whc
contended for 14 cents as a minimun
value, and their arguments were strong
to back up their position, but a con
servative spirit pervaded the body, and
this spirit prevailed.
The meeting had before it the gov
enent report, and it also had reports
from every cotton growing township o:
-parish in the United States, and unless
there is an unprecedented top croI
made, the concensus of opinion is th4

The Doctor's Arnaavit.
An amusing. Incident, occurred not
long ago in a certain police court. Two
men were summoned for being drunk.
Eising to speak on their behalf, their
solicitor said: "My clients can prove
that they were sober. Upon being told
by the police that they would be sum
moned they at once went off to be ex
amined by a doctor, and I hold in my
band a letter from him which, with
your worship's permissiow., I will now
read to the court."
Instantly the solic'itor on the other
side sprang to his feet and protested
against the admission of such a letter
as evidence. The objection was held
to be a good one; but, the evidence
against the men being degmed Insufm
cent in other respects, 'the case was
dismissed. Had the letter been admit
ted they would- undoubtedly have been
convicted, for their legal representa
tive had simply "biuffed" the court.
The letter from the doctor ran as fol
lows: "The two defendsnts came to
me, and I regret to sp~y that I found
that they were both very drunk."

Sixteen Ounces to the Pound, i
In selling you goods over the counter we give
you sixteen ounces to the pound-down weight at
that. We find there is a common error abroad as
to a dru gist's weights, many believing when they
buy cream of tartar, borax, sulphur or any of the
thousand-and-one other items that druggists sell,
they got apothecaries' weight-twelve ounces to
the pound. This is a mistake. We give you
avoirdupois weight-sixteen ounces to the pound.
Apothecaries' weight is used only at the prescrip
tion counter or in the preparation of medicinal
V preparations. One pound apothecary or troy con-'
sists of twelve ounces of 4S0 grains each, a total
of 5,760 grains to the pound. One pound avoirdu
pois consists of sixteen ounces of 437- grains
each. a total of 7,000 grains to the pound. The
I apothecary ounce is the heavier. but the avoirdu
I pois pound is the heavier by 1,240 grains. bdcause
it contains sixteen avoirdupois ounces. You get
a 7,000 grain pound here and the finest quality of
drugs that money can buy.
