land last Thursday on the Lesesne p iace

It is becoming somewhat hazardous
for merchants to increase their wealth
by taking advantage of the bankruptcy
law. In the United States court a Flor
ence last week, a Marion merchant was
indicted for concealing his assets and
perjury. Of course it does not follow
that every merchant in bankruptcy, has
or would conceal his assets, and commit
perjury. It is the rule, thev- give up
everything they have to ther creditors.
It is to the interest of the farmers in

houses here, and these are in touch with
the principal buyers. Then why not ex

There is no doubt of the soil being as
-good for tobacco as any in the county.
All that is necessary is attention.

We would direct especial attention
to the letter in this issue from County
Superintendent of Education E. J.
Browne and urge the organization of
the clubs he directs attention to. There
is every advantage in having at every
rural school one of the clubs, and when
the demonstrator calls they will have
something of an educational Yalue to 9
exhibit. This is an agricultural coun
try, and it must be with agriculture as
with other vocations, intelligence is
the ruling force. This work of the gov
ernment is to make farming attractive,
that the young men will find it agree
able and profiable.

Tcwn Lots Sold.
The American Realty Company of
Greensboro, N. C., came to town last e
Saturday and lifted the lid off of the C
building lots in the southern portion of I
the town. The property belonged to s
Capt. A. L. Lesesne, of Sumter, and is -J
excellently situated for residences. The al
sale was advertised over the county, and 5(
it drew a large crowd. A band discour- n3
sed music, and Messrs. J. C. Penny and n3
D. A. Bodenhamer, i- unison auction
eered the lots.
The property sold like "hot cakes,"
and brought fine prices. Seventy-five B
lots were sold, about thirteen acres, and
had more been offered they would have T
been bought. The crowd was lot hun
gry and the auctioneers had little trou
ble in disposing of what they had for yi
sale. In addition to the sale there was
one lot given away free, this was drawn it
by Mr. Jeff McFaddin, of Sardinia, o1
he got lot No. 11, besides $25 dol- ci
lars ingold coin was given away aud as
several dollars in nickles and dimes t(
was thrown to the crowd. The oc- tl
casion was a great event for Man- fa
ning, everybody was interested, a large ri
number of ladies attended and were as.
excited over the affair as were the men.
The hope now is, that since the rip
ping off of the lid that itas been holding L
down a desirable uortion of the build- 5]
ing property in this town, there will be- v
gin a ne w era, and the sound of hammer .
and saw will soon commence to sing the
song of progress. tgteso h
Notwithstanding the tgteso h
times there was mnanifested at this sale
a strong faith in Manning's future. The
southern portion of this town is an ele
gant section for residences, and now the
lots are in and on the market for those '
who desire to come to Manning to take
ad vantage of excellent school facilities ~
and those other requisites that go to the
building of a good town.
People can buy these lots at a small
cost., and upon easy terms. The great- I:
er number of the lots sold, were to men a
who bought mainly to help build Man- d
ning, and there will be no holding for i
enormous profits. e
Manning has woke up, and is deter- A
mined to push forward from now on. s,
There is no doubt in our mind, that had a
there been thrown on the market the 14
building lots of the town ten years ago, ei
the population would have been double
what it is today. but it is never too late .1l
to do good, and Capt. Lesesne, while C
getting a- good price for his property, a
has done this town a great service by u
ecnsenting to the sale of a part of his t
valuable property here. The writer pur
chased nine of these lots, and he will 8
ladly sell them to persons desiring to E
i'vest in a home in one of the best towns s
in the State.a
If the Clinchfield and Ohio railroad, 1
now in course of construction, makes its t
way to Charleston, as is contemplated, t

COPYRIGHT. 1909, BY AMERICAN PRESS ASSOCIATION
"Back again, Mr. Business Man!"
"Glad to see you. Have a chair. Do you know 'm anxious
to learn how advertising is going to fix those mail order houses."
"Pardon me, but I do not like your expression. The mail
order house has as much right to do business as Brown, your com
petitor across the street. You cannot hope to have it extermi
nated by law, boycott or other unfair means. The only way to
solve this'problem is to meet its prices. You can do this on a
cash basis, and that is the only sensible way to sell. Be so busy
telling the public about your store, your goods and your prices
that the mail order houses do not appear to trouble you in the
least. Quote the mail order houses' prices beside yours to show
that you mean business. Do not attack their integrity. They are
not all frauds, as some merchants would represent them to be."
"But people should be loyal to their home merchants"
"Very true, but this argument has been abused. Stories of the
patron who got 'cheated,' of the dollar that did so much m the
community before it was sent away, the theory of paying taxes, etc.,
are all so weak or lacking in logic as to be an injury to our cause.
If you arc to pull customers from the catalogue houses, it will be
with proof that you sell equally low, not by satire or abuse. They
are to be won, not forced. Then, too, many merchants who are sell
ing too high or are inexperienced and not in the least fitted for
their business, dealers who gossip, are unfriendly and unaccommo
dating or who cheat or mistreat their patrons all claim the support
of the community on the loyalty to home industries plea. To do so
is to seek charity, not business. Even charity covers no such sins.
Now, honestly, do you expect patronage merely because you are a
merchant in this town?"
"What grounds, then, should I take in asking patronage ?"
"Put it thus: 'You buy where you can buy cheapest, and I will
do the same. Remember, when making comparisons with cata
logue prices, to add something for transportation, the delay, the
trouble and expense of ordering, and the like. If I can furnish you
the goods equally low, considering these advantages, buy of me,
because it will help to build up the town. That is all I ask.' To
what one thing do the catalogue houses owe their growth?"
"I must confess it is good advertising."
"Yes; their whole existence is due to it. They cannot live with
out it. They are unnatural iristitutions-could never have started
if local merchants had realized the possibilities of advertising. But
it is not too late to use against them this very instrument that has
been their making. And that is the only successful way to combat
tha mail order evil-advertise."
