THE TIMErS editor requests the pat

which starts from Turbeville today, to
-send their names to him and state what
office they with to be changed from.
We wish to thank many of our sub
scribers, who were in arrears but who
manifested their sincere support to the
paper by coming forward and paying
up. There are still some behind with
us. some of them too will pay. even
though we were forced to drop them,
they know the debt is honest, and they
are honest, and would not have us to
lose one cent on them. If we have cut
off any dishonest ones, it was a lucky
enct for us.
Manning is to have something in the
theatrical line next week, by a com
pany that played here before and gave
great satisfaction. Mr. W. M. Turner
has affected an arrangement with the
Williams Comedy Company. to be here
next Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday
nights The company has been play
ing Charleston and Columbia, and the
papers speak in high praize of their
work. The Williams Comedy Company
is a good, clean, high-class company,I
and we have no doubt it will be well
patronized here. This is one of the best
pop~ular price shows on the road.
Died on her plantation near Wyboo,
last Wednesday, Mrs. S. WV. Nelson,
relic of the late Col. S. Warren Nelson.
aged 86 years. The interment took
place at Summerton, where her hus
band was buried the week before.
The deceased was a Miss Dyson,
noted throughout the fashionable re-1
sorts before the war, for her culture
and beauty. When quite young she was
*woed and'won by Col. Dickerson who
was killed in a charge of the Palmetto
Regiment at Cherubuso, Mex., and his
lantry was so appreciated that in the gal
city of Camden there stands erected to
his memory a handsome monument.
The State of South Carolina presented
his widow with a handsome silver
service. The deceased afterwards mar
ried Col. S. Warren Nelson, and the
couple were regarded among the most
brilliant and handsome in the State.
The Democrat-News published at
Warren, Arkansas of the 26th of March
contains the unofficial returns of a re
cent election, and we note with much
gratification that Maj. David A. Brad
ham, a son of Mr. W. J. Bradham of
Clarendon, has been elected to the leg
islature from Bradford county, by a
handsome majority. It is always grat
ifving to read of the success of any of
our Clarendon boys, when they cut
loose from parental guidance to strike
out for themselves, but in the case of
young Bradham had he not been suc
cessful it would have been a disappoint
ment to those of us who knew what was
in him. He not only has the requisite
ability to maintain himself, hut above
that he has the integrity and the moral
forc~e to merit confidence. The people
of Arkainsas have made no mistake in
honoring Major Bradham, and the peo
ple of his native county are proud to
furnish such an man to them.
Died at the Baker Infirmary in Sum
ter, yesterday morning, Miss Keturah
Gamble. eldest daughter of Sheriff E.
B. Gamble, in the 25th year of her age.
The body was brought to Manning
on the morning train. Tuesday, and
interred in the Manning cemetery yes
terday afternoon. Rev. C. A. Waters,
her pastor, assisted by Rev. D. A.
Phillips. of the Methodist church, con
ducted the service at the cemetery.
There was a large congregation of
sympathizing friends. The decease wvas
a'most estimable young lady, noted for
her piety, and noble disposition. Her
mother died recently, and she at once
became the prop for a family of young
children. She was a devoted sister,
mother, and the dependence of a heart
crushed father. Her death is pecularly
sad, and one of the mysteries of an all
wise Providence. While she was ill
the entire town manifested a deep in
terest in her welfare, and on every
tongue wvas the expressed hope that she
would be spared. The pall bearers
were Messrs: R. D. Clark. B. A. John
son. E. J. Browne. C. S. Rigby. E. B.
Brown, and W. M. Turner. Truly a
good wvoman has been called to her
we are not positive whether or not
we have a right to do so. but not de
siring to drop a name from our subscrip
tion lists. we have drawn a line through
the name of each delinquent who is in
arrears with us for over a year. Again
we beg our readers to give this matter
their immediate attention. We have
no discretion in this matter. it is a rule
of the postodice department, and not
ours. Please examine the labels on
your paper this week, and if we do not
receive a remittance to cover the ar
rearage,most positively those in arrears
will not receive another issue until
they have paid up.

A Little Learning a Dangerous Thing.
A young. healthy, strong buck of a
black negro, giving his name as Jan
uary Scott. from near the Davis Station
section, seems to have a get-rich-quick
mania, and instead of earning his bread
by manual labor. he thought he would
try the road to riches by the wit route.
There lives in his neighborhood an in
dustrious colored man by the name of
Robert Johnson, who, by thrift. and at
tention to his business has built up a
good name with his neighbors, and a
credit with T. P. Smith Mclver & Co..
in Charleston. January Scott had
learned that Johnson's credit was good
with this well known Charleston firm,
and he concluded he wanted to take
advantage of it He therefore wrote
a letter signed Robert Johnson to T.
P. Smith McIver & Co., saying he was
sick and under the care of the doctor
to send him $25 in cash to Manning, in
the letter he repeated the request for
the cash and stressed the money should
be sent to Manning. In due course of
time the Charleston concern, comply
ing with the request of their customer,
sent to Robert Johnson at Manning a
letter containing a check foe $25. and
in the letter they explained to Johnson
that he could get the check cashed by
Mr. Joseph Sprott: they also wrote a
letter to Robert Johnson's son at Davis
Station, in which they regretted to
learn of Robert's illness and informed
him they bad sent him the money as
requested to Manning.
Robert Johnson immediately came to
Manning. went to the nostorice and
received the letter from 'T. P. Smith
McIver & Co., took it to Mr. Sprott
and requested him to send it back as
he had not ordered it, but that some
body had used his name Robert then
went to the postoffice and requested a
look-out for the guilty party. Friday
afternoon January Scott called at the
postoffice for the letter. and being
questioned, it was ascertained he was
the man wanted. Scott was turned over
to Policeman Clark and put in the
lock-up until Johnson could reach
here, which he did Saturday morning,
and a warrant was issued which trans
ferred Scott from the guard house to
the jail. There came to Manning with
Scott on Friday Cuffy Davis, and his
conduct aroused the magistrate's sus
picion that he was anaccomplice and
he had Davis put in jail for further in
Since the arrest of Scott it has been
learned that he is no novice in the use
of his education. He had on a previous
occasion used Johnson's name, and he
used the name of others on orders at
the store of the Levi Mercantile Co.
By the time the law finishes with him,
he will find thatihis wits will bring sweat
faster than the hoe or plow handles;
that a labor contract with a white man
is a flowery bed of ease compared to
what he must suffer as the result of de
pending on his wits.

The Murder Mystery.
The killing of Ed. Ludd, colored,
which took place near Turbeville week
before last is still shrouded in mystery,
and although a letter purporting to
have been written by the man that
committed the deed has been found. it
does not satisfy a good many, but tLat
the letter is a ruse to throw the law
officers off the track. The following is
a copy of the letter found:
"Now I want to Tell youall Someth
ing Like this Dant you all h'urt any
Boddy Else about the Death of this
man for there is only one man no any
thing about It I Done it myself. Why I
did It last Summer Sam Hamson Told
a goddam Lye on me and his Wife
Which was no so & he had that in him
for me yet. he Told me one Suuday I
and himi was going Down the Road he
Told me he had a good mind to kill me
I ask him what for and he said about
that same old Lye wvhat Sam had Told
I just Pass It off with him so he said
he will be goddam if.he couldnt just
kill a man and not mind it a Dam Bit
So I was getting quit on Easy nearly
Everything he would get a chance he
would Threaten me about It no one
Don't no anything hes Deat But me
Sam Harrison is the cause of all this
Trouble no Boddy Else Dont Blame his
wife for It Sam is all ways meddling in
some Boddvs Business
"I am not going any where at you
will find me Right here you need not
Be on Easy about me Trying to get out
of the way for I no that I can't"
It is said that John Garland has left
for parts unknown, carrying with him
some of the funds of a society of which
he was a member. It is known that
Ludd was murdered, and a woman is at
the bottom of the whole business, and
if the woman and her male friend were
put in jail the truth would come out.
and even if Garland was implicated in
the killing he is not alone. The matter
should be thoroughly investigated, life
is too cheap, when a man can be shot
and cut to death and no one held to a
ITCH cured in .30 minutes by Wool
ford's Sanitary Lotion. Never fails.
