The fellow who gives up his time to
run around the country electioneering
for a candidate, gets more cash out of
the job than the candidate or the pe.ople

to treat hired workers is to give them

Ied at home. near Paxville last Sat
urday, Mr. Jackson W. Rhame. aged
21 years. The deceased had been ill
with typhoid fever for several weeks.
The funeral took place at Calvary. Rev.
M. J. Kizer conducted the service.
Jackson was a very promising young
man, and his untimely death is a sev

The postoffice department has agreed
to let Manning have larger quarters
for a postoffice. The building now oc
cupied by Mr. J. L. Wells, as a barber
shop. will soou be vacated and it will
be enlarged, a new equipment put in
and then the office will be established
there under a ten-year lease. The
change will probably be made by the
last of September, if the post office
equipment can be gotton here by then.
When you hear a candidate boast of
his strength, andsay he will beat his
opponent where that gentleman has al
ways polled a bandsome vote, rest as
sured the candidate is blowing for
effect, hoping it will appeal to the man
be is talking to, and cause that man to
want to get on the strong side. But
people are not like children to be
swerved by such tactics.

At the picnic in Salem last Saturday
we heard considerable talk of the new
county scheme, and from what we heard
and could gather, the reaca for the de
sired change is because of the good
roads promised them by the promoters
of the new county. If those good peo
ple will be a little more patient with
our supervisor and give him a chance
to coomplete some work that is neces
sary be is going to put the gang in that
section and work those roadscompletely.
Mr. McFaddin has told us that it his de
sire to get over into Salem as soon as
he possibly can.
A. W. Phelps pleaded guilty yesterday
to the charge of bigamy in the c-"rt at
Kingstree, but on account of his afflic

sentence. Were it not for the man's con

to the penitentiary for a period of
twenty-one years. Phelps will be
taken to his home in Greenboro, N. C.
This is one of the most pitiful cases :>n
record in this State, and it should serve
as a warning to girls to be more care
ful how they make friends with strang
ers. No woman should take the risk
of marrying a man until she knows
him well. In thiscase, a stranger blight
ed the life of a young girl, and crushed
the heart of a wife living in another
State, and yet true to her vows, when
the man who had crushed her and
blasted the future of an innocent but
foolish girl, became afflicted in a
strange land among strangers, she
bound up her wound, and went to her
huband to nurse him in his illness,
and perhaps when he is taken home
this same wronged wife will have tc
provide the living for him. His affliic
tion looks as if a visitation from above.
The Board of Trade has taken ut

-uests they were, and whose member
did all that a generous people could d(
to make the assembled host have
glorious day. The picnic was held in:
grove not far from the splendid stort
ouilding of S. C. Turbeville, and by tht
way, Turbeville is building up rapidly,
splendid stores are there now. more go
in'- up. and the dwellings are of the
modern order. There is a very nict
dwelling not vet finished said to belonf
to Dan Turbeville, and of course, to let
him say it, he expects to keep bachelor',
hall in it, but we bet two to one he would
not be willing to go on oath with ,uch a
statement. Turbeville is magnificientlY
located. surrounded by a section of coun
try that is unexcelled. a people who are
thrifty and sturay, they live like Pr:nces
as a result of their own labor. Their
smoke houses are at home and their corn
cribs at the same place: these people
will not tolerate laziness. or tritleness.
they work themselves, and those about
them mest also earn their bread by the
sweat of "he face. and when playtime
comes they have their pleasures, and
love to furnish pleasure for their friends.
Those Salemi tesarea progressive people
as is manifest in their interest in the
character of their church and school
buildings, the PineGrove church has no
superior in the county, and the school
facilities are splendid now but it is pro.
posed to have additional school facili
ties, more up-to-date.
Not so iong ago they bad a school bond
election and the vote was close but the
opposition to the bond issue was not the
resuit of stinginess or ignorance, but it
was the judgment of some of the best
men there that the bond issue was not
the proper way to get at what was want
ed. Some of the same men who opposed
the bond issue would willingly go into
their own pockets and contribute the
necessary money, and thereby keep off
the tax which must necessarily be put
on. These men are as progressive as the
others. but with them it is a matter of a
differance of opinion solely. However.
whether the new school building eon
templated, is built by a bond issue or by
money contributions the fact remains
that the spirit of progress is with all of
those people even where some may hae
different views as to the best way of ac
complishing objects for the good of the
com-unitv. When, and wherever this
spirit exists, no one can truly say that
ignorance guides them in 'he way they
favor or oppose.
But to the picnic, There assembled a
large concourse of people. they came
from far and near, and they came too
with "well filled baskets." On the
grounds were all kinds of vehicles from
the one-horse wagon to the automobile
touring car: horses fat and sleek, were
hitched out to trees, and the people were
there in holiday attire. it reminded the
writer of a fourth of July celebration he
attended upon the Isle of Palms where
the city folks with their country cousins
were out for an outing and a huge time.
The man who but the day before was
out in his fields working like a Turk,
was this day the gentleman of ease
greeting his friends and neighbors: the
lady who but the day before was super
intending the work'in her home, prob
ably doing the most of it herself. was
this day the fashionably and comfortab
lv dressed lacy who was glad to be with
her neighbors to join them in the pleas
ure it gives good people to be able, and
glad to feel the warm touch of friend
ship. The children was in their hey day
of glory, they romped and played, crawl
ed over t.heir Dads when they got a
chance, whether Dad liked it or not, and
the young chaps with the pretty girls did
not seem to care how long the day last
ed, in fact there were som'e who actual
lv declined to permit the writer to get
~ithin hearing distance of them. He
asked one spoony couple did they wish
his presence, and the girl in tones that
could not possibly be misunderstood said
No. the writer widened the distance,
for he did not know what the fellow wvho
was with her had brought from the
There was everything to add comfort
to the pleasure of the day, soda water,
ice cream, lemonade. cigars, and what
ever could be desired to refresh the in
ner man, and cool his parched tongue.
The refreshment stand was weill patron
ized, and the service was good.
On account of a wreck on the Alcolu
Palroad there was some delay about the
speaking. Hon. Thomas Hamer of Ben
nettsville, who was to deliver an address
for the Woodmen, failed to arrive, but
Hon. Mendel L. Smith of Camden, for
mer Speaker of the House of Rlepresen
totives, also especially invited to deliver
an address, arrived to the gratilication
of the large assemblage. A stage was
provided upon which was seated a num
ber of gentlemen, visitors. Mr. Clem
Dennis announced that Rev. E. P. Hut
son would introduce the speaker which
he did in a few remarks. The address
was a masterpiece. The subject was
"Fraternalism," and it is our judgment,
after having heard this subject aiscuss
ed by some of the best after dinner, and
latform speakers in the United States,
that it was witho~ut the least doubt the
best we have ever heard, so itopressed
with it was the writer that he pleaded
with Mr. Smith to give him tce speech
for publication as he did not feel he
could do'such a grand uieliverance jus
tie in an attempt to write a partial sy
nopsis. Mr. Smith began his address by
announcing that he was not a Woodmen,
but would soon be as he has recently
been elected to a camp membership, but
has not as vet been initiated, so Chop
pers, let us when he is taken through
the forest, pray that he may have a safe
journey, and that when he sits down to
rest he will be comfortable.
He showed what fraternalism did
menian and he demonstrated most elo.
ouentlywhat it did not mean. lHe made
tclear that where the proper fraternal
spirit existed, crimes aba.ed. neigh bors
ved in h armony and love with each
other. Where this spirit abided it was
the hand maiden to the church and the
school. It was a great civilizer. and it
was the sunshine to the soul. All
through this grand utterance the speak
er held his audience as if snell bound. i'
hung upon his every word. and when he
stopped his hearers would have muct
referred that he had continued. Such
speech is seldomn heard, so mxuch zoot
thought condensed in the :--hort time
Mr. Smith told the writer thait he. hai
m nanuscript with him. but if he. coukt
have the time to write out is .,:>eet
when he reached hcme lie would try t(
do so. but he was afraid he couild not ire
it to us in time for this wveek's issue.
after the speaking dinner was an
nounced, and we have no hesitency ii
aving there was food enough to havy
fed live thousand people, and isuchi food

Editor The Manning Times:
It is generally conceded that the
anticipated blessing is more pleasinz
than the real: but the reality of warm
weather is most acceptable and leas
ant to the farmers. Today is practi
cally the beginning of labor since the
continuous rains began some three
weeks ago, and the most of our plant
ers will find a plenty to do. That the
weather conditions caused poo r
stands is accepted as true, but that
atple time, assuming more favorable
conditions, remains in which to de
stroy the ill effects is also true.
The town council has with renewed
activity continued the work on our
-tin streets. The claying being done
is rapidly progressing; and main
street promises to be an up-to-date
road throughout its entire length in
the course of the next week or so.
The corner stone of the new Metho
dist church will be laid on Thursday
afternoon next. In spite of the bad
weather the work has been progress
ing nicely. It is the hope of the con
gregation that the building will be
completed sometime previous to the
meeting of the South Carolina Con
ference next fall.

cated in Hampton. It seems that an all
wise creator has ,,pecially favored this
part of His vineyard, and yet we fear
that we do not appreciate His goodness
as we should. He has not only surround
ed us with marks of His loving kindness.
but has also given us a noble people. It
would be hard to find a more liberal
minded and procressive people. if yiou
were to travel the world over than we
have here in Hampton county. We have
the land. we have the water. and we
have the progressive spirit among our
Peole. So why may we not some day
have the greatest county in the State.
in the greatest liepublic of the world.
We are very sorry tnat the !-'ditor of

us the honor of being an inlabitant of
this great county. We do greatly re
joice. that he is permittcd to share with
us the privileges of citizenship in our
state and the world. It is inspiring to
behold the smiling faces of our progres

is also a cheerful look on the faces of
our business men: which may be con
strued as a taken of their feeling of se
curity and contidence.
A man giving his name as Charlie
Painter. was lodged in jail here on the i
16-h inst., suspected of being -Joseph
Wendling the murder of Alma Kellner.
of Louisville, Ky. Mr. Editor you know
this must, be a great town when we are
forced to look to Kentucky and other
states to furnish criminals for our jail in
order that the jailer may have enough
work to keep him awake. We also have
such a thing as an alms house down
here: but we only have one pauper in it:
an old colored woman who might have
come from some other section of the
country: so we challenge even Claren
don county, to show a like record for
peace and prosperity.
There was a beautiful home wedding
in our town on the afternoon of the 16th
inst.. when the residence of Mrs. W. J.
Ellis was the scene of the marriage of
her daughter, Miss Florence. to Mr.
Thos. J. McDaniel. by the Rev. J. R.
Funderburk the otileiating minister.
The wedding march was played by M-s.
J. W. Elkins, who also played softly.
"The Palms." during the ceremony.
After refreshments of a very delicious
were served, the happy young couple
wook the train for Glenn Springs. We
are informed that other couples are soon
to follow. If our young men do not be
stir themselves, young men from other
sections will come and take some of our
beauties away to other parts of the
