people, because it took an amount o:
enterprise to venture such an under

Mr. R. C. Wells was elected clerk and
treasurer. Under a recent. Act of thc
general assembly council appointed as
a board assessors L. H. Harvin, S.
Oliver O'Bryan and C. L. Mcllvcer
and as a board of equalization Messrs.
David Levi, F. C. Thomas and J F.
Geiger. These boards will have a deli
cate duty to perform, but if they per
form that duty without fear or favor
they will receive the thanks of the
community. The:e seems to be an
idea that the purpose of having these
boards, is to raise the valuation of the
property that more money may flow
into town treasury, but we do not think
such is the purpose at all, however, it
may result in the taxable income being
increased. The main purpose is to put
the town property on the books more
equitably assessed, and if in a more
just assessment some have to pay more
taxes it is only because they have not
heretofore paid what was their just
There was a very pleasant gathering
at the New Zion school picnic last Sat
urday. The day was an ideal one, and
those present enjoyed the occasion.
The evening before there was a large
attendance at the exercises of the New
Zion school, which is presided over by
Miss Cravan, and who has given such
satisfaction to the patrons that they
have persuaded her to accept with the
aid of an assistent, another term.
Miss Cravan has done a good work at
New Zion, and the people appreciate
her services. Prof. J. C. Daniel of
Manning was expected to deliver
an address but he was unavoidably
detained at home.But the people wanted
speeches, so they made Clerk of Court
A. I. Barron master of ceremonies, and
he called the assemblage in the school
room to order and introduced Dr. I. M.
Woods, and he gave to the audience a
splendid talk He =pointed out the
meaning of education, its application,
and its uses, and abuses. His remarks
were full-of pr&tical thought and well
put. Dr. Woods .was followed by THE
TmxEs editor, who endeavored to give
encouragement to the work of educa
tion, now so manifest in that sectfon.
After the speeches, dinner was an
nounced, and it was a dinner in keep
ing with Salem's well edrned reputa
tion for hospitality, suffice it to say
there was plenty of good things to eat
for many times the number, notwith

Carried Back Bad News.
There is an old waw which says, "all
things come to those who wait," and
considering Manning's ill luck in the
base ball past the recent happenings,
hope is at last turning its face this way
to bring~ success once more to cheer the
hearts of our local fans. On last Fri
day afternoon Summerton came to
Manning in uniform arrayed, and
every fellow had in his eye a gleam
that spelled Manning's scalp. Why, it
was a dead sure thing, a lead pipe
cinch, and many of the locals felt a
gnawing doubt about their goozzles,
because it is common r~ort that there
is nc-;ning else done in Summertor
these days but knocking Manning by
the old, and base balls by the young,
while here every fellow old and young
is too busy with the things that are tc

a medalion. The game was played or
the school house grounds, and witness
ed by a very good crowd. Mr. Ashley
Avant managed the Summerton team,
and to his good offices can be attributec
the squelching of a number of kicks or
the umpire's decisions, which, if he
was in error, he distributed evenly far
The battery for Summerton was Ten
nant and Dingle and for Manning Ise
man Wannamaker. It was evident
from the beginning that Manning't
battery was too much for Summerton.
The boys put up a very good game,
and gave the spectators much pleasure,
until an accident occured to Martin o.
Summerton, who was struck by a bal]
from Iseman, and it was feared the boi
was seriously hurt. but he .was game,
and in a short .vhile was all right very
much to the gratification of all of us.
