I think the past season has

road beds before the roads are

your road beds with the dirt that
is thrown - from your drainage

You can connect small ditches

no section will have to partici

If you want a bond for your

I am in favor of equal rights to

I am in favor of some restric

I am in favor of the rural

Tobacco Salse at Clark's Wareboase.
One of the best sales in the history
of the market was realized here Mondays
There were 30,000 pounds of tobacco
sold at the Manning Warehouse for an
average of 17c. per pound. J. C. Den
nis of Turbeville sold 3,225 pound of
ungraded tobacco at an average of 21c.
F. E. DuBose of Sardinia, sold 2607
pounds at 17 1-4c. C. W- Dennis of
Turbeville sold 832 pounds for 23c. per
pound. All the farmers were pleased
with the sale.
Manning has always paid the highest
market prices for tobacco, and from
the amount being sold here the prices
must compare favorably with any

In European countries, "but subsequent

The mace was originally a potent
weapon of offense, originating doubt
less in that earliest and most common
eapon the wooden club. It was an
essential part of a knight's accouter

For ready convenience it was hung at
his saddlebow. Says an'%ncient poem:
And with his heavy mass of stele
Then he gave the kying his dele.
The besague and baston were varied
forms of the mace. The mace used on
horseback was a small weapon, usual
ly of steeL That used on foot was
much longer and commonly of wood,
with head armed with iron rings and
spikes. It was carried by the escort
of magistrates and others as a ready
protection against violence. As soc

the ornamental appearance It now has,
