This year has demonstrated beyond

If the business men of this town could
see the splendid edition of the County
Record of last week, they would realize
the reason for Kingstree's rapid strid-|
es, and why it is so much trade hats;
gone to that town. The trade follows|
enterprise and hustle, and where the I
business men of a town manifest activ
itv it attracts trade. No man "can eat|
his cake and keep it too." Look over|I
the newspapers and wherever the mer-.j
ehants generally advertise that town is
on the move, but where they are con-|
tent to drift with the tide, there is very
little activity and progress. Advertise,
it helps the advertiser as well as the i
newspaper, which cannot live with
out patronage, any more than man
can live without food.
Of special interest should be the two
institutes for farmers in this county un-.
der the auspices of the United States
department of agriculture, in co-on
eration with Clemson college. T h e
first will take place at Oak Grove school
nouse near Sum merton on August 13th.
the other will take place at the Pienie
rounds near Sardinia, August 14th.
The attendance should be larg.e as the
people's money is paying for these in
stitutes for the purpose of educatiuir ard
developing the tillers of the soil. There
will be at these institutes farm experts
who will lecture on subjects relating to
every day farming, the care of stock,
the treatment of animals. insects, the
fertilization of lands, grasses a n d
rains, in fact, everything relating to
farmingi and dairying. No farmer should

One of the noticable featnres of Man
ning's growing tobacco enterprise i!
the number of farmers who herctofort
have not devoted their attention to th(
cultivation of the yellow weed that ar
now visiting the warehouses and watch.
ing the selling process and the variou4
grades, and who are seeking informa
tion from their fellow farmers who havt
made such a splendid success this year
It is the belief that next year there wil
be a general planting of tobacco arount
Manning, and in the course of a shorl
time this section will have more to
bacco planted than is now planted it
the Salem section. Why? It is becaus(
the lands here are well adapted to thc
culture of the weed, and it is a crop n(
harder or more expensive to grow that
cotton, it brings money earlier. and
when the tobacco is removed from the
ground it is in time for a fall crop o
something else. If the farmers around
Manning will go into the tobacco grov
ing generally as we think they will
from a business point of view it will b
better for this town than cotton factor,
ies. Wherever the planting of tobacc<
o. become general there is prosperity,
Manning has a decided advantage ovei
other markets, in that it does not need
to attract to its tobacco floors the arti.
ficial devices such as are thrown out tc
catch the unwary at other places, we d(
not need to open up kegs of beer to in
duce the farmer to bring his producl
here, he brings it here because he i.
aware that it is to his interest to do so,
that all of these baits which are throwt
out must at last come out of the pro
ducer, therefore, he comes to a marke!
where the inducement is the best price
the limits of the buyers can make. HE
omes to Manning because he know
that when he sells his tobacco he car
walk into the stores that advertise ir
THE MANNING TIMeS and buy goods a4
fheap as in any market in the State.
The Postoffice Changes Management.
The Manning post office will changE
management tomorrow evening aftet
the mail has been distributed. Mr. H
H. Bradham, the newly appointed post
master, received his commission lasi
Friday morning, and could have as
umed charge at once, but he decided
that. as the month was so nearly speni
he would wait until the 1st to begin his
official connection with the office. The
clerks, Messrs. Moffett and Cuttino,
will, remain with him for the present.
The post office came into the preseni
)r retiring management, under the ad
ministration of President Cleveland,
January 1st, 1894, when the -office waE
in the Fourth class, very little larger
than the present Paxville office, it ha!
zrown since then to be of the Third
:lass, and it has won the approval o1
inspectors, railway mail clerks, and all
aters having business relations with
it. The retiring management after a
service of nineteen years and seven
months is very gratified with the many
kind expressions fronm patrons of the
>Efce, especially from those who have
volumns of business. The employees
ave been uniformly polite and atten
sive, and were a strong force in giv.
ng to the public a service, both con
icientious and faithful.
It was known before Hon. Richard S.
Whaley was elected, that if he was suc
essful in his contest the good service
rendered by the present management
would not have any weight with him
for its retention, therefore when he
recommended a change it was not sur
prising in the least, and left no heart
burnings with the retiring offeial to
wards the successful applicant He ap
plied as was his privilege, and was sue
essful, and it is hoped he will give tc
the patrons a first class administration.
rhere were other applicants who were
strongly endorsed for the place by the
patrons, either of them would have
made an efficient offcial, these appli
ants thought they had good reasons foi
believing the plum would fall to them,
but their petitions and endorsementi
id not carry the neccessary influence tc
win Mr. Whaley's endorsement, which
was absolutely necessary to succeed.

Home-What a Hallowed lhame.
I By John P. Thames.]
How full of enchantment and how
dear to tbe heart: home is the magic
circle within which the weary spirit 1
finds refuge, it is the sacred asylum to
which the careworn heart retreats to
find rest from the toils and inquietudes 1
Ask the lone wanderer as he plods
his tedious way, bent with the weight 1
of age. and white with the frost of
vears, ask him what is "Home," he
will tell you it is a green spot in mem- 1
oy, an oasis in the desert. a center
about which the fondest recollection of .
his arief-oppressed heart cling with all
the tenacity of youth's first love. It was
once a glorious and happy reality, but
now it rests only as an image of the
Home, that name touches every fibre
of the soul, and strikes every chord of 1
the human heart with its angelic fin
aers. The word home with its pleasing.
images and deep emotions awakens and 1
calls up the fondest memories of life
and opens in our nature the .purest,
deepest., richest gush of cousecrated
thought and feeling.
Some years ago some twenty thous
and people gathered in the old castle 1
garden. New York, to hear Jennie
Lind sing as no other songstress had
ever sung the sublime composition of 1
Bethoren. The Swedish nightingale
thought of home, and with deep emotion
began to sing "Home Sweet Home." %
An uproar stopped the music, some
people cryed tears, and Bethoven were
forgotten, and (home,) that was the 1
word that spell-bound souls of the crowd
and Howard Payne triumphed o'er the
great masters of song.
When we look at the simplicity of
this home song we ask what is the
charm that is concealed in it, and why 1
does the dramatist and poet find his -
reputation resting on so apparently
narrow a basis. The answer is easy, it
is next to religion, the deepest senti
ment in the human soul is the home af
fections. Every heart vibrates to this
Home i6 law to our hearts that binds
us with a love that time and change
cannot break, the darkest villainies
which have disgraced humanity cannot b
neutralize it. Gray haired and demon C
guilt will make his dismal cell the q
sacred urn of tears wept over the mem- t
ories of home, and these will soften and tj
melt into tears of penitence, even the '
heart of adamant asks the little child 3
what is home? It will tell you that it is
all the world to him or her. He knows t)
no other. The father's love, the moth- a
er's smile. the sister's embrace, the t
brother's welcome, thrown about is a 0
heavenly halio, and makes it as attrac- 1(
tire to him as the home of angles. I
Home is the spot where the child b
pours out all its complaints and it is the -I
grave of all its sorrows. Childhood has t)
its sorrows and its grievances but home E
is the place where these are soothed C
and banished by the sweet lullby of a
mother's voice. Was paradise so auode d
of purity and peace? or will the new 0
Eden above be one of unmingled beau- s,
titude? Then "the Paradise of child- sl
hood," the "Eden of Home," are names
applied to the family abode..
In that paradise all may appear as N
smiling and serene to childhood as the a
untainted garden did to unfallen man, a
even the remembrance of it amid dis
tant scenes of woe has soothed some of
the saddest hours of life, and crowds of
mourners have spoken of
A home that paradise below,
Of sunshine and of flowers;
Where hallowed joys perennial flow,
By calm sequester'd bowers.
And it is realty and not poetry to
speak of my own dear quiet home, the I
Eden of my heart. There is nor-hing on
earth so beautiful as the household on
which Christian love forever smiles,.
and where religion walks a counsellor E

PUZZLIN.G ANCHOR ICE.
Its Formation Seems Contrary to the
Laws of Nature.
Anchor ice is the popular name given
in many parts of this country to the
ice formed at the bottom of swiftly
running streams. This ice usually
forms about stones and logs where the
current Is disturbed. What' gives it
Interest ii the circumstance that its
formation seems to be contrary to the
laws that govern freezing water.
We know that In still water ice be
gins to form on the surface. We are
told that in cooling down to 39 degrees
F. water contracts and that its specilfle
gravity increases so that the colder wa
ter will be at the bottom. But in cool
ing from 39 degrees down to -32 de
grees the water expands, and the cold
est water will be at the top and freez
ing will begin there. If the surface
is disturbed by wind or by current the
crystals cannot attach themselves and
ice does not form, though the water
be tooled below the freezing point
It Is in these circumstances that ice
forms at the bottom. One of the puz
zling features of this formation Is that
it forms where the lower currents seem
The watermen of various localities
believe in the possibility of the water>
freezing at the bottom of a river, the
surface remaining fluid. They assert
that boat hooks, eel picks, etc.. con
stantly come In contact with a coating
of Ice at the bottom and that large
masses of ice are often seen rising to
the surface with mud, weeds and stone
adhering. Millers have asserted that
the wheels of their water mills have
become frozen to the bottom of the
stream while the surface of the water
was still nnfrozen.-Harper's Weekly.
DISCIPLINE IN GERMANY.
Even the Boys Respect Law and Order
and Property Rights.
One of the things which apparently
escape the attention of most scrib
bling travelers in Germany Is the dou
ble line of fruit trees along the public
roads. There are several thousand
miles of these trees on either side of
public roads in northern Germany.
Most of them are apple trees.
You know what would happen to
those apple trees In any American
state? Boys would pick the fruit
green, too Impatient to wait for it to
ripen. and likely enough they would
break down the trees getting the fruit.
What happens In Germany? The pub
lic authorities sell the fruit crop to
contractors at from $200 to $500 per
mile and apply the proceeds of the sale
to the upkeep of the roads. Boys do
not steal the apples. Nor Is It neces
sary to maintain a policeman every
100 feet to prevent such mischief.
Why are the German boys so much
more respectful of property rights than
American boys? Is the difference
racial? I hardly think so. It's a dIf
ference of training probably. I'm In
clined to believe the universal military
training. with Its constant strict in
sistence upon obedience to law and or
der and the strong element of moral
training In the public school curric
