The County Fair.
Mr. W. T. P. Sprott of Foreston was
Manning yesterday in the interest of
e county fair project. Whether the
rmers and merchants of this county
come suaiciently interested to take
active part in getting up the fair we
not know, but that they should is
t to be questioned. If the fair is to
a success there is one thing certain
at its support, in the way of contri

The county fair idea is a good one, it
s a stimulating effect and results in
eat good, but to make the project
ccessful something more than wind is
eded. Manning by itself cannot fur

well save their labor now. The

From henceforth for twelve motzths
will our legal documents be designat
ed as drawn in the "135th year of the
Independence of the 1inited States.'
In other words. to'lav. the 4th day of
July coitmeinorates the birthday of
America's independence. Or to put
uore mnodern expression to the satne
fact, today is the "Worious Fourth."
But for the closed doors. Summerton
ians might lose sight of the fact for
as vet none of the significant evi
dences are apparent; but on the other
hand, our farmers are celebrating in
their own peculiar way. So welcome
i: Zhe sunshine that they are putting
forth every effort to get in soune much
needed attention to tneir crops. This
section has been having entirely too
much rain. and even the more opti
mistic of our planter friends are esti
mating the coming crop at an aver
ace of ;O per cent.
The claving of the Eastern portion
of Main street is being pushed stead
ily forward, as are also some snaaller
improvements in the streets within
the town. The recent rains have lei
some badly washed places in the low
portions of town, but the town coun
cil together with the county gan:g is
gradually but surely reaching them
The North Western Railroad's corps
of workmen have been occupied for
the past ten days on that part of the
road in and around Summerton. They
are now engaged in filling in the Taw t
Caw trestle abnut a mil- from this
depot. This seetus to be a wise un
dertaking, and will no doubt render
transportation much safer. We do
not now consider oarselves too vision
ary to iuuse upon the probability of
improved accommodations on the
North Western. We are even accept- I
ing the rumor that a passenger and
mail train is to be put in operation at
the beginning of another year.
On last Wednesday. a number of
young people had a very enjoyable
all-day trip to Scott's Lake. At the
instigation of Mr. Pete Anderson the
excursion was planned, and suffice it
to say that the participants got their
full measure of pleasure therefrom. In
spite of several hard showers during
the day, the outing was quite a suc
cess, and none were inconvenienced
by the slight "ducking."
On Friday evening, Miss Annie Rut-,
ledge entertained in a most charming
manner in honor of her guest, Miss
Sopbia Branson. The disappointment
occabioned the guests upon their ar
rival to find that the guest of honor
had been detained, was soon compen
sated for in the many pleasures of the
evening. Quite a number of the

for the younger set. WVednesday even

Those present took part in a poem~
writing contest. Each couple was;
given a paper on which were written
four letters, each letter begin the first
word respectively in a poem of four
lines. Miss Pauline Horton and Dan
Turbeville won first prize and were
awarded a box of nice stationery.
Miss Emily Hutson and Dave Turbe
ville carried off the booby, a bottle of
cologne. After the contest cream and
cake were served. Music and gaines
made the affair a most pleasant one.
Another enjoyable social functioni
was that of an excursion party Thursi
day evening at the Methodist parson-'
age for Miss Pauline Horton of Heath'
Springs. In the large parlor chaiis
were arranged so as to present the ap
pearants of seats in a street car. Th esel
were filled with couples and the ex
cursion began with Rev. E. P. H utson
acting as conductor. At each station!
the gentlemen exchanged seats, but;4
between the stops the couples were
allowed a three minutes talk on some 4
topic assigned. Quite an interestingI4
and amusing contest was entered in-I
to by the young men. The first one j4
to eat a cracker and whistle a song, 4
was awarded a prize. The winner,
Dr. C. E. Gamble, was presented a
whistle. Delicious refreshments were
served and all had a jolly time.

convention was advertised well and
proved to be a great success.
