Dr. W. E. Brown & Co.
At an entertainment at Workman
last Monday evening for the purpose of
raising funds for the church, among
the delightful features of the occasion
was voting a cake, but the greatest of
all was Mitch Epps and Ned Kennedy
kissing each other for one dollar, they
kissed, the money was paid, and strange
to say both have survived. Miraculous!
Babies and children need prom't at
tention when suffering from coughs and
colds. The best remedy for mothers to
use is Kennedy's Laxative Cough Syrup
It taste nearly as good os maple sugar,
it contains no opiates, and it is laxative
and drives the cold out of the system
by gently moving the bowels. Sold by

The Johnny Jones carnival company
now entertaining the public on the
court horse square, is the largest of
the kind that has ever visited this town.,
they have a number of attractions, be
sides the usual cane racks, . punching
bags, confetti, candy wheel'and every
thing else to create fun for the young.
The band is splendid, its music alone is
worth a visit to the carnival, the mu
sicians are Italians, born musicians and
they play twice a day morning and ev
ening, come out on the street and give
a musical exhibition which is a treat.
So far as we have seen anybody can at
tend this carnival and bring their folks
along; it is clean. no gambling, and
nothing to shock the most modest.
There is nothing but fun on the outside
and within the shows everybody gets
full value for their money. While the
carnival is here let everybody come
and enjoy it.
Mr. E. L. Mards who conducts a gen
eral merchandise business at Pope, Va.
writes: I had chills last June and got
down in very bad shape. My system
was so completely run down tnat I was
scarcely able to atiend to any work, I
took 3 bottles of Rydale's Tonic and felt
like a new man before I had finished
taking it. It did me more good than
anything I ever found and my health
was good all last summer. W. E. Brown
Vote for the School.
The qualified voters of school district
No. 9 which is the district that em
braces the town of Manning -.,re called
upon to vote on the question whether
or not to issue bonds for the purpose of
building of a first class up-to-date
school building in the town of Man
ning. The present school building is
entirely inadequate, it is unwholesome,
poorly ventilated and not at all in keep
ing with a town of Manning's size. A
new school building is an absolute
necessity, and the issuance of long term
bonds is the easiest and best way to
secure the money to build it. Tbere
are some taxpavers who express a wil
ingness to vote for the bond issue but
hey object to the building bearing its
resent name, in our opinion this is a
flimsy excuse, for it matters not what
the building is called, the school house
is the matter of importance. But in
rder to relieve those objecting to the
ame of the builing the trustees have
ecided that in case the people vote in
favor of a bond issue the property will
e transferred from the town to the
district, and be known as "The Man
ning Graded School," this will remove
the objections of those who are opposed
o perpetuating the name of a citizen
who, throughout his career in this
ommunity was public spirited, and
did much for the town and the commu
nity generally. It is to be hoped that
that the voters of this school district
will look to their interests and cast an
affirmative vote for this progressive
ovement. There are some who are
pposed to voting for a bond issue be
cause it means adding a little more
taxes, they are opposed to being taxed
for school, or any other purpose, they
ant to enjoy the privileges and bene
fits that taxation brings, but they are
pposed to paying for it.
We need nos argue the advantages
to be derived from an up-to-date school
uilding, every intelligent person real
izes what it means to a community, and
e hope the sentiment for it will be so
strong that even the opposition will
give way and make it unanimous. Let
s urge the men of Manning and the
rest of this school district to turn out
on the 17th day of December and show
o the world that we appreciate the
value of educational facilities, and that
we propose to give our children as
good onportunities as are given in
other towns, even smaller than Man
Come to the Carnival.
Bedlam broke loose last night on the
ourt house square. The town tnrned
out, and there was a general mix-up,
boys and girls,old maids and school tea
3hers,married men and widows,married
women and anybody,and there you are.
Hilarity and confetti were joyously fea
sting and making merry. It was a
scene tha.t beggared description, amid
the "hurry, hurry" of the megaphone,
the screeches of "try your luck boys"
at the cain racks, "every turn of the
wheel wins a box of Lowney's candy
boys" the crash of music, the shooting
of pistols to draw crowds to the animal
show, and the flitting about from place
to place of the lady with the paroxide
hair, all and more, was a continous
round of gaiety. Everybody was in
the game, it was a rip, roaring, jolly
good time for all and for mighty little
cost. The show started Monday night.
oore than doubled last night, and will
ontinue to increase- in attractions and
rowds until the tents are take n down
on Saturday night.
It is but just to the management to
a that we have never met a more
gentlemanly showman than Mr Johnie
Jones. He does not stand for any gam
bling, short-changing, or any immoral
or 'egrading exhibitions. His aggre
cation of amusements, are all clean,
and bear the scrutiny of the most pru
dent. No lady need have fear of seemg~
things her cuiosity does not crave for,
and no man need fear of getting kid
napped and dragged into bad company.
Let the crowd continue to increase, not
only from the town, but from all over
the country, the show is a little worfl
of pleasure, that everybody may enjloy
without much cost. Tomorrow night,
as a celebration of thanksgiving the
marnificient band will give an open air
concert, there will be a special pro
gram of the choicest musical gems,this
alone should attract large crowds.
