A Sad Death
Died at Homeland, Fla., Tuesday
ght 17th inst., Mr. J. Elston Ridge
fy eldest son of Mr. J. S. Ridgeway of
anning. aged nearly 27 years. The
>dy was brought to Manning, reached
re Thursday morning, and the funer
took place Friday morning, Rev. D.
. Phillips conducted the service.
The deceased was a young man of
2e character, a magnificent specimen
physical manhood, excellent address
id pleasing manners, one calculated to
ake friends anywhere. He was in the
very business near Homeland, and was
ing well, when taken ill he went to
s sister's home where he lingered
ht weeks. The father reached him
out ten days before he died and re
ained with him. The deceased was a
night of Pythias. a member of a lodge
Rhem's where he once lived.
When the news of this young man's
ath reached Manning it was a shock
his host of friends. The family have

unity in their bereavement.

-Usurpation of Power.
The county dispensary has been clos
d by order of Governor Ansel, who, in
ur opinion, had no more authority to
lose the establishment as a result of
he election, than an individual had.
[he whole business was a non-compli
me with the law from the publication
>f the notice, to the order-of the Gover
br. The dispensary closed last Friday
norning, the State board of canvassers
id not meet until the Monday follow
ng, and any citizen could have contest
ad the election before that board.
So far as the effect is concerned it
ade no difference, except to the extent
f the profits which would have been
nade for the county in the number of
iays remaining until oflicial legal notice
would have been given the board. There
was no contest, the vote of the majority
was submitted to without contention
for the legal rights, but as a matter of
law Governor Ansel had no right to or
der the dispensary closed as a result of
the election, until after the State can
vassing board had certified the result tc
the Secretary of State and he to the
Governor no moe so, than he would
T have the right to commission an oicer
elect before the State board had acted
upon the election. However, notwith
standing the governor's usurpation of
authority the dispensary closed, because
there was no disposition to have any
contention over it. The following is the
order which was tired oif half-cocked by
"State of South Carolina,
"To the County Dispensary Board of
Clarendon County: The report of the
commissioners of election for Clarendon
County on the result of the election held
as to the 'sale' or 'against sale' of liqu
ors in your county has been filed with
me, and, from this report, it appears
that 'against sale' carried by a very
large majority. It further appears that
no protest was entered or filed with said
commission except protest which was

quired immediately to close the dispen

said section in winding up the business

M. F. ANSEL,
Some Historical Errors Corrected.
To the Editor of THE MANNING
TIMES: Congratulating and thanking
the "Son of Abraham" for his beauti
ful tribute to the Rev. James McDowell,
which recently appeared in THE MAN
NING TIMES, I desire to correct a few
historical errors made by this beauti
ful writer. The Rev. James McDowell,
after preaching in Charleston in 1856 or
1857, was called by Concord and Claren
don churches, and installed as pastor of
the two churches at Concord. After
wards Harmony's whole congregation,
which had become weak on account of
account of the emigration of meny of
its most influential members to South
west Georgia, joined the Clarendon
Presbyterian Church, which had but
five members, as follows: Jos. S. Mc
Faddin, Capt. and Mrs. Joseph Burgess,
Mrs. Harriett B. Hodge, and Miss
Annie Lloyd. The two male members
were the elders. Then the church mem
bership moved to Manning and built the
Manning Presbyterian Church in 1858.
Our beautiful writer has made one
other little error when he says the 6th
regiment was known as the "sharp
shooters." The 6th regiment reorgan
ized with John Bratton as colonel in
which there was a company from the
Salem section of Clarendon County, com
manded by Capt. William Brand-the
only company from Clarendon that fol
lowed the peerless Lee from start to
finish. It fought from the battle of Wil
liamsburg and surrendered at Appoma
tox under Capt. William Brand. The
Manning Guards were made cavalry in
1864, and consequently missed the cam
paign from the battle of the Wilderness
to Cold Harbor and from thence to Pet
ersbura, and the engegements surround
The sharpshooters were organized
with twelve companies, perhaps the
largest regiment in the Confederate
army, by that peerless, knightly, Chris
tian commander, Micah Jenkins, who
afterwards was made brigadier general
and was killed at the battle of the Wil
derness by his own men through error
Gen. Micah Jenkins commanded five
South Carolina regiments: The first and
Second Rifles, the 5th regiment, 6th
regiment, Palmetto Sharpshooters and
Hampton Legion until it was mounted
s cavalry and considered by many the
best drilled and disciplined by Lee's:
I ask to be pardoned for touching upon
atters of war history, but would like
to see the record kept straight.

In Memory of Harold McFaddin.
n the dawn of life's bright morning,
When the heart beat high with joy,
When the days were filled with pleas
That can come but to a boy.
When the step was quick, elastic,
And the heart was glad and free
And the future full of promise
As it for a boy can be.
ived sweet Harold, and his living
Was a joy beyond compare,
Was a dear and precious blessing
To the home that held him dear.
But one day there came a shadow
Thick and dark across that home,
When he heard the angels whisper
From across the borders, "Come."
He was staying with a school mate
On that awful fatal day
When a shot came-unintended,
'Twas 'out simple boyish play.
Yet it struck our little Harold
And his precious life blood flowed,
Quickly paled his cheek with suffering
That with health and life had glowed.
And he died as died the Master,
Not a word of fault he found
With the one that thus had given
Unto him his mortal wound.
, the Anguish and the sorrow,
Thus to see his tender heart
Cease its beating and his spirit
From the earth so quick depart!
We have missed our darling Harold*
Since he went to sleep that night,
We have never been as happy
And the World is not so bright.
As it was when we couLd see him
And-could hear his happy voice.
But we hope again to meet him
And with angels to rejoice.
In that home where never sorrow
Comes, ncr ever comes a pain,
There to dwell in bliss forever,
We shall never part again.
Foreston, November 21.-Special: A
lovely wedding took place at 6 o'clock
Wedesday evening, November 18, in
Foreston, when the doors of Mr. and
Mrs. J. C. Land's hospitable home were
thrown open to a few invited guest, who
assebled in honor of the marriage of
their eldest daughter, Mary Louise, to
Mr. Sam W. Hogan, of Greelyville, S.
C., a young man of many admirable
qualities and who bids fair to make a
success in life The rooms were very
grettily decorated for the occasion, the
preailing colors being green and cream
The bride was daintily arrayed in
Copenhagen blue tilk-made empire
stle, trimmed with blue velvet and
wiite and gold applique-carrying in
her bands a lovely bouquet of ferns and
white carnations, tied with white illu
sion. They entered the parlor to the
beautiful strains cf the i edding march,
where, in the presence of loving friends,
the ceremony was impressively perform
ed by their esteemed pastor, the Rev.
L. E. Peeler. After congratulations the
bridal party repaired to the dining room
-where they were served to delicious
refreshments. The table. with its abun
dance of delicacies, was veritably "a
thingt of beauty,"? to be seen to be ad
mired. The nresents received from those
in attendance and others at a distance
were numerous and handsome.
Next came the sad hour of partiog.
The bride changed her bridal robes for
a travelling suit of garnet broadcloth,
handsomely and elaborately trimmed
with black-hat and gloves to match.
Farewell words having been exchang
ed, the guests took their departure, and
just here occurred an amusing incident.
A cunning contrivance had been pre
viously arranged, and as the bridal pair
passed through the outer door by some
one pullin a string, down came a coni
ous showing of rice upon their heads;
thereby causing uproarious laughter
from one and all.
Mr. and Mrs Hogan were accom pan
ied to the depot by a bevy of young
friends, and. boarded the 7.35 p. in.,
train for Charleston, where they will
spend several days of pleasure. On their
return they will he at home to their

KEEP THE KIDNEYS WELL.
Health is Worth Saving. and Some Manning

Many Manning people take their

kept up to our Motto of "Best Goods at
Lowest Prices." You are aware of the fact
that we cannot sell Goods at Cost and con
tinue in business. No Merchant does that,
and we do not claim to sell at cost, but we
do claim and will sell you Goods as low in
price as any ofrour Competitors. We gladly
meet all competition, both in quality of mer
chandise and prices.
We believe we have the best and largest
Stock for this Fall that's ever been shown in
Manning, and not an article throughout the
store is priced too high, but owing to hard
times and scarcity of money we have not
sold our stock down as close as we hoped to
by this time, so we have decided to reduce
prices still lower in order to reduce stock
and raise money to meet our bills. By the
time this letter reaches you we will have re
arranged and re-marked our Stock of Dry.
