A Beautifal Window and an Elegant Stock of
The signs of Christmas are already
here Old Kris has arrived at J. H.
Rigby's and prepared his headquarters
for the coming holidays. It is worth
while for young and old to go to Rlgby's
and take a look at a show window ar
ranged by Miss Clara Harvin: it is a
cosy home, and had she prepared the
apartment for herself and him, she
would not have exhibited more taste.
No one but those with a single thought
could conceive and create a more home
like picture: it is perfect9y beautiful and
should be seen by everybody. The high
price of cotton bas mme bouyant the
pirits of Mr. Rigby. F he will dem
onstrate his love for children by giving
each and every one a present that goes
to him personally and tells him that he
looks Jike the Santa Claus in his ele
gantly arranged store window. Now
children make a bee line for Rigby's,
see the pretty things he has on exhibi
tion, tell him he looks like Santa Claus,
make Papa and Mama accompany you,
and be sure and ask Miss Clara whose
stockir.gs those are that are hanging up
at the chimney. Rigby for many years
has prided himself on his Christmas
preparations, and this year he has ex
celled any previous attempt. He has
everything to temp( the eye and gladden
the heart of young and old, whether it
be toys or the substantial things, and
whatever he offers can be reliect upon
as first class
There is a r-ule in this store handed
down from the founder of the business
and faithfully upheld b. the preseot

value, nothing shoddy,ap little hand
me-dawn practices andgbove all,- treat
everybody with politeness, neglect not e,
rich and poor given the'ttmze courteous
attention and full value-for everything
bought. There is no doubt that J. Hor
ton Rigby is a merchant that Manning
has every reason to feelmrod of, and it
is his thoroughly reliabIe.methods that
has won the confidence of the people and
built for him a first class trade. His
store this season, in all the various lines
has no superior anywhere, and but few
equals. Don't fail to visit.Rigby's store.
An Unfortuate Mistake.
The people in the Nedemian's Branch
section became very much excited last
Thursday, and all on account of the in
ability of a foreign pedler-not being able
to spea the language. It appears the
pedler approached a house with a pack
on his back, the dog in the yard unac
customed to such a sight made for the
pedler, who, to escape the dog, ran into
the house wi'.h the dog close upon him,
he baving only ti-ne to shut the door in
the dog's face. His sudden appearance
startled the lady of the house, and with
out waiting to hear an explanation, she
ran from her home and arouse her neigh
bors with her screams, whereupon a
-rowd was gathered together to go after
the supposed miscreant- in the mean
time the pedler seeing from the window
that the dog had followed the woman,
left the house and went on down the
road. He had gone but wshort distance
when his pursuers overjpok him, they
seem excited, and the mqre the pedler
-ried to explain the worse he made
things for himself beciuse the crowd
could not understand him and thought
e was pretending crazy. The poor
stranger, innocent of wrong, was badly
handled by one of the crewd and would
have probably been killed had it not been
for Mr. H. M. McIntosh who came up,
aid saved him. The lady who was
frightened had just heard of the at
tempted assault not far from there, and
this stranger rushing in upon her so
suddenly made her come near being the
innocent cause of an innocent stranger,
who was not r.ble to speak English, be
ing the victim of a lynching bee.

The movement so long neglected has
at last begun to erect a monument to
the memory of the heroes who wore the
gray,-soldiers whose record was the
marvel of the civilized world. Clarendon

honor of those who responded and laid
down their lives upon their country's
altar. All contributions sent to the

It can hardly be expected of a Sum
merwon correspondent to brinie within
the bounds of a signal letter the many
items of interest that have been accum
ulating during the pas.t two weeks; and
yet it does seem to be an injustice to the
town whose influence as a business cen
tre is of so much force to be denied rep
resentation at leas't weekly in the news
paper columns. However, when unfav
orable circu'ustances and scarcity of
time do not admit of our regular letter,
let it be under'stod that Summerton is
keeping her end up, and that Lhe read
ers of her social and business affairs can
rest assured that "no news is good
news." Indeed, question always arises
in preparing any letter as to what to
leave out rather than what to put in.
As the Christmas season approaches
many evidences thereof are being man
ifested in the shopping centre of town.
The stores are placing on .axhibition
their usual pretty lines of holiday goods,

eyes open to be reassured of the fact that
they need not leave Summerton to pur
chase their Christmas presents.
The Eaden Bros. Co., who have been
in the mercantile business for several

o Our Friends and Customers :
THE MANNING OIL MILL has been recently bought
rm the South Atlantic Oil Co., and at the beginning of our
aeer under the present ownership we extend our thanks to all
four friends for their support and patronage.
We have tried in the past to deserve your support by being
;bolutely fair and honest with all of our customers, and we ask
a continuance of your support for the following additional
FIRST : Ours is a local company-not a dollar of its
ock is owned outside of South Carolina.
SECOND : We pay arnually to the Town and County
easurers over $600 taxes which helps that much towards pay
Pn the expenses of our local government.
TRlIRD: It costs us about $30,000 per year to manufacture
eseed we purchase, and of this amount, $20.000 is spent right
ere at Manning. In other words, when you sell us a ton of seed
C2-3 bushels) you get market price for the seed and the coin
nnity gets $4 of the amount it costs to manufacture th'im. When
a sell a ton of seed to the other fellow, you get the mra ket price
rthe seed, and SOME OTHER COMMUNITY gens the benetit
ofthe money paid out to manufacture them.
We could mention a number of other reasons, but we think
eabove is sufficient to convince you that it pays to patronize
Yours very truly,
Manning Oil Mill,
C. R. SDROTT. President and Treasurer.
