Clarendon county is in better shape
now than it has been in many years, the
people are enjoying an era of prosperity,
and its effect is being felt on every hand.

cashier's window, but made the deposit
on the floor, "and cast a downward

to ask the people to meet with the dele- t

Christrmass day passed off quietly i;
Manning. The tcwn council had for
bidden the shooting of fire vrackers or
the streets, and the day was very incle
ment, all of which had much to do witt
making the day quiet The only sign!
of a Christmas racket was so:) in th
morning when the booze fighters werc
lined un at the express office waiting
for their package. The sight looked
like the crowd at the ticket wagon just
before the performance was tc
begin at a circus. Much of the oh-be
joyful was distributed, and as each one
got his package he hiked out and away
to the place where he would be free tc
enjoy his Christmas without being m.>
lested by the police. There was very
little drunkenness on the streets. one or
two rucuses amoog the colored ladies
who had imbibed freely. and the night
before some rucusing among a set of
whites who had also imbibed too much
of the Florida fire-water. Otherwise
Manning enjoyed an ideal Christmas.

Within the next few weeks seed beds
or tobacco plants should be prepared
nd no one who contemplates growing
crop of tobacco this year can afford
o neglect to do this important work in
be most thorough manner. Last year
'HE TIMES published one of the most
omprehensive enethods of doing this
rork, with the result that those who
llowed Lustructions secured fine plants
ud good stands when transplanting.
'he unfavorable seasons made the crop
oor in grades, but this was owing to
reather conditions which came about
t long intervals. It might be well for
bose who were discouraged by last
ear's crop to remember that the con
itions were not local, but exter-ded over
ost of the bright leaf tobacco belt, and
y reason of this there is now a great
carcity of good tobacco. This condition
rl assure the planter better prices for
fair grade this season than has been
aid in years. The present high price
f cotton is very attractive but it would
e suicidal to neglect the tobacco crop
n that account, as it. is not likely we
rll have so poor a crop another year,
nd it is probable that the largest acre
ge will be planted in cotton this year
an over before and with favorable
easons a like larger crop will be pro
uced. This condition would bring
bout the same result of some years
aclc, when cotton sold at 1i cents, fol
~wed by a year of 6 and 7 cents cotton
ad we all know how impossible it is to
row it at that price and make a profit
n our labor. Very many of our farm
rs have been at considerable expense
or barns, tobacco tiues. All this would
e a waste if tobacco is neglected.
The necessity and inducement for
rowing grain and hay crop'; have never
ieen so great in the history of our coun
ry as at this time. These commodities
.re selling at prices that should induce
heir production in grea--er quantities on
very farm. The farmer wvho attempts
o run his place and buy thema is likely
o be confronted with a dleticit larger
han he has dreamed of in years of al
tost total failure in crop. Those who
rill think back for a few years will
alize that at no time has it been more
iecessary to conserve our resources and
