The law forbids the sale of any coi
pound or mixture which will produce
intoxication, and we are told nearly
every general store sells essence of lem
on which contains a larger percentage
of alcohol than ordinary whiskey. The
drug stores with few exceptions are sell
ing quantities of Jamaica ginger which
contains about 75 per cent alcohol when
diluted with water makes a good sub
stitute for liquor and a drunk that will
make a man spit in his grand-mother's
A country merchant told the writer a
few days ago that it is with difficulty he
can keep either essence of lemon or
jamaica ginger in his stock, that if the
courts decide the sale of these com
pounds are legal, he is thinking of going
into the manufacture of them to sell at
wholesale. He said he .is satisfied he
an manufacture these two compounds
and some other stomach washes to sell

consumer for one-half the price of whis
key, and be equally as effectiVe a drunk
The trustees of t'ae various school dis
ricts should hold a county convention
to see if they cannot fix upon a scheme
to keep the schools in county running
ine months. It is very evident that a
aumber of the schools, including Man
ing cannot have a term ol nine months,
nless something is done to supplement
,he fund. The condition is upon us, it
matters not the cause. we are to face it,
mnd we believe it would be well for the
3ounty superintendent of education to
3all a meeting of all the trustees of all
,he schools in the county, and invite the
public to attend. Let the head of the
chools give to the meeting a statement
>f the condition of each district, then
let him invite discussion.
A meeting of this rature can do no
arm, and it might result in good. The
matter of amending the school law re
ating to the appointment of trustees
.uld also be taken up at this proposed
eeting. At present the schools are
anaged by trustees virtually appointed
by the County Superintendent of Edu
:ation, the patrons have no voice in
,hese appointnents, and it frequently
happens that there is much dissatisfac
ion resulting, now. if the people want
this system changed so that in their re
spective districts the trustees shall be
elected, a resolution from a meeting
would have weight with the delegation
Bu the main thing in our judgment to
be discussed should such a meeting be
eld, is a ways and means to provide
means for a full nine months school
Boards ot Health Are Pnblic Guardians.
We are asked "to define the functions
Snd powers of the Board of Health, and
what relationsbip the duties of the
boards of health is to the public wel
are." To comply with the request
fully would take up more space than is
at our command. The law, with the ob
ject of having every precaution against
liseases, plagues. contagions and epi
:emics has given to the boards of health
smost unlimited powers to enforce any
regulations they may make. For in
stance: A board of health in one com
munity may make a regulation that is
imperatively necessary in its communi
ty, that would be altogether unneces
ary, inoperative and perhaps injurious
in another, therefore in order to extr
ise a wisdom essential for wholesome
government of a community, provision
is made by the law to cover the condi
tions and ~environments of the respec
tive communities by permiting the local
boards to make such regulations, not in
conflict with the regulations of the State
Board, as in their judgment may be
deemed proper, and the law officers are
required to enforce these regulations.
What are the functions of the Boards
of Health? The name itself suggests
ther duties viz: To exercise an intel
ligent vigilence over the community for
the preservation of health, and in this,
they should have the support of every
good citizen because when a community
becomes lax and unsanitary from indif
ference, neglect or otherwise the dam
age is not to a few but to the many.
Epidemics cannot be arrested at one
man's door, if his neighbor is to have on
his premises that which may breed
pestilence-filth, trash, decaying vege
table matter, pools of stagnant water
which are mosouito incubators, and any
and all things that are not conducive
The police preserve law and order in
a well governed city; it is this guardian
ship which gives pe-- of mind, and
permits citizens to lie E.7n to sleep,
having faith in the protection the gov
ernent promises to life and property.
Boards of health occupy a similar rela
tion to the general public, they are
watchman on the tower to warn against
the approaching danger a monster more
insidious than the thief who lurks about
in the night. They are to arrest the ap
proach of that, Nhich not only robs the
purse and leaves property to mourn the
:ss, but with invisible mystery enters
in and robs the marrow of the bones,
and leaves its victim a sufferer of mind
and body, and praying for the grim
monster Death for relief.
If -there is one thing the people of
this American government can be proud
of and thaukful for it, is the great stress
being laid by the spending of millions
of dollars for improved sanitary meas
ures. The government has been able
to stamp out diseases altogether, and in
very many sections by the strict vigi
lence of boards of health, has prevented
them from getting beyond their starting
point. A board of health doing its full
duty is really more of a guardian for the
uplift and welfare of a community ?.nd
giving more indiscriminate benefit than,
in our judgment, any other one branch
To Prevent Hydrophobia.
A correspondent writes that about six
years ago he saw an item in a newspa
per stating that a German physician
was going to die, and he wished to make
know the discovery he had made in re

bite. The prescription he never knew
to fail, and he had tried it many times
with men, cattle and horses. It is this,

A Novel Case.
A case of unusal interest was called
before Magistrate Richbourg's court
at Summerton last Thursday. Dr. D.
0. Rhame, the mayor of Summerton,
was haled before Judge Richbourg
charged with selling Jamaica Ginger, a
compound, containing a large per
centage of alcohol. The charge being
one beyond the jurisdiction of the mag
istrate all that. he could do was to hold
a preliminary, but the prosecution rep
sented by J. M. Woods, Esq., made ob
jection to Judge Richbourg hearing
an exparte side of the case upon the
ground of biasness in favor of the de
fendant. ,W. C. Davis, Esq., repre
sented the defense. The cause was
moved to Manning to be heard before
Ma2istrate Dickson at a time nut fixed.
As far as our information goes, there
appears to be considerable feeling
among the friends of Mr. Ad Walters,
who it seems bought Jamaica Ginger
at the drug store of Doctor Rhame,
and became intoxicated to the extent
of becoming boisterous and disorderly.
He was arrested and heavily fined,
which resulted, so it is claimed, in a
warrant being sworn out charging Dr.
Rhame with vioiating the liquor laws
of the State, in that he sold a compound
or mixture which contains alcohol
when used as a beverage will produce
This case will be watched with in
terest all over the country, because a
very important element of law enforce
ment is involved in it. If the courts
decide that the selling f of Jamaica
Ginger is in violation of law, it will
necessarily have to make the same
rling with regard to nearly all of the
extracts being used in the households
for cooking and baking, because nearly
all of them contain'. large percentage
of alcohol. Vinegar would have to be
analyzed to ascertain the percentage
of alcohol it contains; yearst for the
making of bread, goes through a fer

Messrs. Geo. S. Hacker & Son, at Char

Mr. Geo. S. Hacker in the year 1842.
has been bought by the Hacker Manu
facturing Company. The new company
is composed of some of Charleston's best
known and most progressive business
men, and we have no doubt but that the
record established by the former firm
for fair dealing and the manufacture of
honest goods will be maintained by the
new concern. The name Geo S. Hacker
&.Son has for almost three-quarters of
i. century been a synonym for the best
in door, sash and blind manufacture,

racturing Co., the good will and confi
dence of the people of this community.
Mr. G. B. Buell, of the firm of Buell

"Suffer Little Children to Come Unto Me, and
Forbid Them Not."
Editor The Manning Times:
In the MANNING TIES of May 5th
this paragraph appears in the local
olumn, "The Sardinia school was
visited last Sunday by M~r. Isaac M.
Loryea of Manning, who participated
in the Bible class exercises, after
which he read from manuscript an
address to the Sunday school. -Sub
ject, Christ from Book of Matthew."
Although your paper is usually
accurate, in this instance you have
fallen into several errors.
First: The writer did not partici
pate in the Bible exercises, but mere
ly assisted a few of the scholars seat
ed near him in locating the answers
to the questions profounded by the
Second: His subject was not "Christ
from Book of Matthew" but "The
Cry of the Children," his text from
St. Matthew, Chapter 18:1 to 2 inclu
sive. In his introductory he stated
that as a son cf Judea and naturally
a firm believer in the 'One and Only
God,' still he had the highest esteem,
regard and admiration for his dearly
beloved young brother, Jesus the
Jew. And incidentally spoke of
the beautiful boy Christ jour
neying to Jerusalem to par
ticipate in the Passover holi
days in the golden city, commem
orative of the Exodus of the israeli
tes from the land of bondage, and as
the first emancipator of women and
as a great lover of little children, and
the ever fascinating and touching in
cident of the friendship of Mary Mag
dalen for her saviour in every sense
of the term, and lastly he dwelt upon
the "Cry of the Children."
Your correspondent would add that
the address was only delivered at the
earnest request of members of the
Sunday school, and that prior to its
delivery the manuscript was shown
to the superintendant so as to avoid
giving any offence to his many good
friends assembled who have been so
kind attentive and hospitable to him
during his stay in Sardinia.
He would add that the address was
received with kind consideration and
interest, much more than its merits
deserved. IsAAc M. LORTEA,

A Lion Hunt.
There is a d-zLinction in Africa be
tween or.inary lions and "man eaters.
says T. R. MacMechen in McClure's
Magazine. The ordinary loin does not
willfully attack man. The presence of
loins roaming at night on the veldt is
riot disturbing to any native nor to
whites who have come to understand
the beast. Persons returning to their
camps after nightfall do not notice the
roaring of lions or the cries of leopards
It is seldom that people bent upon do
mestic errands carry weapons in the
darkness. although at night the veldt
of British East Africa is alive with
roaming beasts. which may be heard
from the verandas of the houses. Lions
give the passing man a wide berth, day
or night, when it is apparent that he
means no mischief. An ordinary lion,
even when wounded will try flight be
fore fight. When its escape is disputed
it will. especially if wounded, try to
maul its enemy wi'.h teeth and claws.
A lion hunt is usually a chase in which
the hunters goad the game into combat.
Once a lion has tasted human blood,
however. it is no more afraid of man.
but learns that he is the weakest of ani
mals and the choicest of meat. Such a
lion is known as a man eater because
now he hunts man.
