Died in Manning last Wednesday
Theodore Harvin the oldest colored of
citizen of this town being about8&5years
of age. The deceased was highly o:
thought of by the white people, and in
former days long after the government o:
got into their control, T.heodore Harvin
was retained as a member of the town of
coun'cil. He was a carpenter by trade,
and all over the town are the monu- tc
ments of his toil. He was a negro of
the old school which is rapidly passing
away. If the younger generation of
his race would cultivate the manners
and character of Theodore Harvin they
