Clarendon County Fair.
There will be a Ciarendon County
Fair held at Manning next fall, and it.
success is already assured. Several
weeks ago the Manning Board of Trade.
which has already done some ,aiuable
work for Clarendon county, appointed
a committee to inrestigate anid report
on the advisability of holding a county
fair at Mann:tng some time during the
fall of 1910. and on last Saturday morn
ing the Board met to receive the com
The report submitted showed that the
committee had carefully lo ked into the
experience of other counties in such
undertakings. and contrary to expecta
tions, found that none of these Fair As
sociations had lost money. always corn
in.- ,ut even, and in many cases report
ing money made and dividends declar
ed. The committee pointed out that. in
view of the fact that about ninety farm
ers are now farming under government
supervision in the demonstration work.
and because of the wonderful interest in
the bovs' clubs, that these men and boys
would need some adequate place to ex
hibit their products in the contest for
prizes, as an additional reason for
launching the project. The report was
heard with great interest, and all pres
eat pledged moral and tinancial sup
port to the undertaking. considerable
stock beian-g s-bscrttbed before those
present left the hall
The committee was instructed to take
the necessary steps to secure at once a
crter for a companv with a capital
stock of $3.000. the stock to be divided
into $10 shares The committee was
also instructed to secure the grounds
under lease for at least fire years.
It will be seen that the stock is with
in the reach of every farmer in the
county, and while the business men of
Manning are subscribing liberally to the
stock, it is expected that it will not be
a town corporation. but one taking in all
sections oi the county. Clarendon. the
agricultural department says, has taken
the most advanced step in the United
States in iLs scheme of carrying scien
tific farming to its boys, and this Coun
ty Fair is but preparing so that its whole
county may see the fruit of the Board
of Trade's work for the agricultural de
elopment of the county.

Homidde in Sak1.
A homicide took piace at St. John's
colored church, near Workman. last
Saturday. when Anthony Burgess shot
and instantly killed Jack Smith, both
parties being colored. A single-barrel
shotgun was used and the entire load
passed through the bead of the deceased
from rear to front. It seems that about
1$ months ago Smith ran away with a
daughter of Burgess, and Burgess pur
sued them, threatening to kill Smith,
but relented and let them go. About
ten dayrs ago, while Smith's wife was
sick, be kicked her out of the bed
and went away. after which the woman
made her way to her father's. Last
Saturday, while a number of colored
people had gathered to clean off the
cemetery at St. John's, Smith being
among them, Burgess came up with a
gun, and remarking to Smith that "you
have been runnmng over me long
enough," poivtedl the gun at him and
fired. Smith was killed instantly, and
Burgess went away none of those pres
sent making any effort to detain him.
A pistol was found on the person of the
deceased. Coroner C. H. Baggett held
an inq ucst Sunday, when the jury re
turned a verdict that Smith came to
his death from a gunshot wound at the
hands of Burgess. Sheriff E. B. Gamble
has made every effort to apprehend
Burgess, but has been unable to locate
Syfax Milton Is Dead.
Svfax Milton, a well-known and in
fluential negro and a conspicuous char
acter in former days, died at his home
in Salem, near the Midway causeway,
last Sunday, after a brief illness. It
will be remembered that be was in
Manning' and made an address on
Emancipation day, January 1st. The
younger generation that has come upon
the stage cannot realize the conditions
that existed in this State during recon
struction and the republican regime.
In those .days Sy fax Milton was a power
in the land. Though not an educatsd
man he was possessed of a goodly share
of sound, common sense. He was iden
tified with the ring-streaked and striped
element that controlled in those days
being a representatire and senator from
Clarendon county, but his inuluence
was not always for the bad nor did he
profit greatly by the graft that was
obtained in those days of good stealing.
He relinquished his seat in the senate
to Cot. H L Benbow over thirty years
ago and since his day only one or two
colored men have sat in that body.
M iton was one of the better class of
politicians, and he lived to see and con
fess that it was a great mistake that
the government of this State should
eer have fallen into the hands ol
ignorance and incompetence'.
