To the voters of Clarendon county:
I desire again to thank you for the
vote given me on the 27th, and to say
that I am not a sore-bead at my defeat
-but on the other hand am very gi at~e
ful for the many kindnesses shbwn me
during my political career. I feel that
I have done a duty to myself in making
the race. I made a clean campaign and
have no regrets so far as myelf is con
cerned. To my home club, (Pinewood)
I wish to thbank for the loyalty she has
given me in every election that I .have
been in, that will never be forgotten.

It was with regret that we noted
from the Manning correspondence in
the News and Courier and The State
that there were intimations of fraud in
Clarendon county; the corresponden1

or he would not write as if there had
been nearly as great an increase here
as there was in Anderson. The vote of
1910, for some reason there was a falling
off of the vote amounting to over 30(
votes, many did not go to the polls;
some would not vote for the Prohibi
tion candidate and others would not
vote for Blease. The vote of this
county in 1906 was nearly 1900 i 90,
it was over 1800, therefore we sa fthe
correspondent has done this county as
injustice when he intimates fraud be.

The actual increase in Clarendon bas

been some minor irregularities in some

were a half dozen cases of fraud in the

To the Editor Manning Titues:
Will you kindly permit me to ack
nowledge through your columns my
thanks and aporeciation to the many
friends who supported me in the pri
[Ifeel that my sweeping victory is-due
entirely to the loyalty and love of the
friends who interested themselves in my
behalf and worked so earnestly and
zealously for me. I was not able to
make a vigorous campaign except at
the risk of my health and therefore was
compelled to leave the conduct of the
campaign almost entirely to my friends.
I am therefore doubly grateful for their
loyalty and devotion, I wish also to
thank every individual voter who with
his ballot evioenced the continued con
fidence in me.
I have endeavored to serve the people
oT-m-district and state faithfully and
conscientiously. I have done my best.
To the public servant there is little in
public life beyond the satisfaction of
knowing that he retains the confidence
of those who have honored.
There is no living man who apprecia
tes more than I do the confidence of the
people, and the love, loyalty and devo
tion of his friends. I wish to thank
them one and all for my overwhelming
victory. Very Sincerely Yours,
GEORGE S. LEGARE.
To the Voters of Clarendon cournty:
As a right that every citizen has, I
entered the race in the Democratic pri
mary for the office of Clerk of Court,
and I went to all of .the meetings set
aside by the County Executive Commit
tee, there I met my opponents and we
discussed our claims, the first primary
resulted in my getting into the second
race, but since it was so declared,I have
been bearing of things being said as
coming from me which are without
foundation, and can only be intended to
create a prejudice in the minds of the
voters. These kinds of metbods should
not deceive the voters, as it is a trick
that has become th.,ead bare. To start
a rumor and then go about in the guise
of the innocent injured, has been work
ed too often to be effectual this time. I
am not starting reports on my opponent,
but I am soliciting all-the votes I can
get for the orlice of Clerk of Court in a
fair and honorable manner. I know that
I have offended many of my former
friends because of my outspoken support
of the principles ad vocated by Governor
Blease and because of this position, thev
are doing all in their power to prevent
my election, but I ask my friends to
stand by me, and to pay absolutely no
attention to rumors or reports of any
nature which may bear on the Clerk of
Court's race. Yours &c,
- J. H. TIMMONS.
Card of Thanks.
Permit me to take tb-s opportunity
to thank moy friends for their loyalty to
me in the recent primary. Especially
do I wish to express my appreciation
to my neighbors at Summertotn, Pa
nola, Silver and Paxviile, for their
warm endorsement. As a reault., I am
in the second race for the oflice of Su
ervisor of Clarendon County.
I shall deeply -appreciate, and do
earnestly ask for the continued support
of those'who espoused my cause at the
polls on August 27th. Many who voted
fr some other candidate have assured
me of their support in. the second pri
mary. I wish to thank them all in ad
vance for their efforts in my behalf on
next Tuesday. Respectfully,
W. R. DAVIS.
Please allow me to say through The
Times that my attention has been called
to a report that has been circulated in
the Deep Creek section, that I said "I
was ashamed of the Deep Creek people
,as they were my bomne folks for being
Bleasites although I couldn't expect
any better of them for they didn't have
anyv better sense." In reply to the
above I wish to say that it is false and)
without foundation. I have never at
any time said an unkind word about
one for voting for Governor Ujlease, or
anybody else for that matter. I always
do my own thinking and my or'n vor
ing ard accord tto others the same righ t
and privilege. That lie was started for
no other purpose but to injure onc in
the coming primary.

Vaiu6 of Massagd.
The value of massage properly ad
ministered is coming to be Egnerally
recognized by the medical profession in
many ailments. In local congestion the
overtension of the vessels can often be
relaxed, thus bringing to the sufferer
a relief which, not forthcoming, would
allow the ailment to progress to a pro
tracted or deep seated disorder. The
New York Medical Journal, concerning
the benefits to be derived from mas
sage treatment, says that in acute c%:d
in the head strong inger pressure
along the upper portion of the spine
on either side will open up the nose
passages on the corresponding side.
Masseurs usually rub well on both
sides of the spine. Fever headachtes,
or congestion of the head, are readily
relieved by slow, distributed pressure
on the nerves at the back of the head
and along the upper vertebrae. Acute
fevers, accompanied by cangestion.
swollen veins., dry skin, are relieved by
gentle pressure along the back mus
cles, this treatment being intended to
facilitate perspiration and to quiet the

Benbow and His Messmate.
When the brave Admiral Benbow
was a common sailor his messmate,
who was stationed with him at the
same gun, lost his leg by a cannon
shot. The poor fellow called to his
friend Benbow, who took him upon
his shoulder and descended with him
to the cockpit. But it happened that
just as the poor fellow's head came
upon a level with the deck another
ball carried that off also. Benbow,
however, knew nothing of the matter
and carried the body down to the sur
geon, calling out to the latter that he
had brought a patient,. desiring some
one to bear . a hand. The surgeon
turned about and exclaimed:
'Why, what do you do here with a
man who has lost his head?'
"Lost his bead!" says Benbow. "A
lying scoundrell He told he it was
his leg, but I never believed what he
said In my life without being sorry
for it afterward."
The Milk In the Cocoanut.
A correspondent of the New York
Sun, referring to an inquiry respecting
the'origin and meaning of the saying,
"This accounts for the milk in the co
coanut," says that an answer may be
found in the practice remarked by
Captain Miarryat in one of his novels
on the occasion of a ship's visiting the
West Indies, as follows:
On the ship's arrival the bamboat
women would flock to its side, plenti
fully supplied with cocoanuts, which
were eagerly sought by the sailors, and
on the occasion described by the author
one of the skip's officers ha4 selected a
cocoanut, and the bumboat woman
eagerly Interfered to prevent his re
ceiving the one he had selected, saying,
"That not for officer; that for sailor."
The officer's 'curiosity beIng aroused.
he asked for a cocoanut "for officer"
and at the same time insisted upon get
ting the one originally selected by him.
On opening the two the one -for offi
er" was found to he in Its natural
state, containing the so called milk,
whereas the one "for sailor" was found
to have had its milk removed and the
place thereof supplied by rum. Further
examinatIon disclosed that all of the
cocoanuts "for sailor" had thus been

The Rignt Kind of Hustler.
There Is a good story concerning a
certain trip of inspection when Louis
Hill and a party of officials were tak
ing a peek at the station agents some
where along the line in Minnesota. At
a station we may call Oscarvile an
agent, perhaps forewarned, was ob
served frantically moving trucks and
"There's a hustler for you," said one
of the party.
"Humph," said Hill.
At another station the agent met
them smilingly, smoking a good cigar
and clad in his best clothes. He was
frankly idling, yet nothing was askew.
"Well, what do you think of that?"
commented one of Hill's friends.
"There's an agent who has time to
"Humph." said Hill.

April in Western Europe.
April is one of the driest months in
the whole year in England. in the
southeast of England, Including Lon
don and its. surrounding counties, the
average April rainfall is only 1M inch.
That of March, reputed the driest
month, is 1.46, while May's rainfall Is
nearly a quarter of an inch In excess
of April's. Not only is April a dry but
also a very cold month. April 10th to
15th is a notoriously cold period.
All over the western part of Europe
April is a month which is justly dread
ed for its severity. Even in Spain this
Is the case. In central Spain there is
an old story that a shepherd promised
March a lamb if he would temper the
winds to suit his flocks. March did
so, but the faithless shepherd failed
to keep his promise. In revenge
March borrowed three days from April,
which were worse weather than any
experienced in March.-London An
Jam Started as Medicine.
Jam in its early days seems to have
been regarded as possessing medicinal
properties. Gait in "Annals of the
Parish" notes "a new luxury that got
In among the commonalty about 1760.
By our -young men' that were sailors
going to Jamaica and the West Indies
heaps of sugar and coffee beans were
brought home, while many, among the
cabbages in their yards, had planted
berry bushes, which two things hap
pening together the fashions of mak
ing jam and jelly came to be introduc
ed into the village. It was found that
jelly was an excellent medicine for a
sore throat and jam a remedy as good
as London candy for a cough or a cold
or a shortness of breath." Did It ever
occur to you that "jam" was abbre

Acute Sense of Hearing.
"Yes," said the prosperous lawyer in
speaking to a friend, "I had a long
wait before I got any practice, but I
am certainly satisfied - now with my
professionand its emoluments. The ear
ly days, the waiting for clients, were
hard, though. Why, do you know that
I got so after awhile that when I heard
a footstep on the stairs I could tell
ninety-nine times out of a hundred
whether or not the person was coming
to my office?"
"Well that Is strange," replied his
friend. "Your sense of hearing must
have been very acute."
"Not so much that," replied the law
yer. "You see, I made up my mind
that they were not coming to my office,
and ninety-nine times out of a hundred
I was right."
-When Death Cools His Stig.
There Is a curlcops superstition in Ja
maica that if a death occurs in the
house all the water In It is poisoned at
once and must be thrown away, the
reason given being that Death cools
his "sting" after destroying Life in the
first water he finds, and as no one can
tell-death being invisible--what jar he
may choose It Is safest to throw it all
away- Careful people to save trouble
even carry all water out of the house
immediately before a death is expected.

"Why don't you ever want to go to
