It is said that efforts are being put
forth by the colored teachers in the
various school districts to have every
negro school represented in the Field
Day exercises which will be held in
Mrnning Friday February 27th. Each
school will have a booth prepared and
arranged by the local committee in
Clark's Warehouse. On each booth
will appear the name of teacher and
school printed in large ietters and dis
played on card board. The Cbarles
ton band will be secured for the occa
sion and they hope to have 2000 pupils.
teachers and patrons in the parade.
Prof. R. Shaw Wilkinson, president of
the State negro college at Orangeburg
is among the speakers that will address
the crowd. In the meeting of the as
sociation last Saturday 18 teachers
met the requirements for the celebra
tion by arranging for their booths and
it is supposed that by February 20th,
40 more of the schools will be in line.
This display of what is being done in
the negro schoels in the county should
attract the attention of both teacher
and patron, most especially those who
wish for better results in the life of
rural education. Prizes are to be of
- feaed those schools making the best
show in exhibits and general appear

having the best cake or loaf bread.
The managers of the celebration want
all work to be that which is done in

The Confederate Monument Com
mittee have made the first payment of
$800.00 on the Monument. We have
about $400,00 in cash and good sub
scriptions on hand. We will need
$1.000 more to complete the work and
unviel the Monument with appropriate
ceremonies. That every one, and es
pecially the children may have the
privilege of participating in this work
of love we are all sending an urgent
"anneal to the Patriotic and loyal boys
and girls of Clarendon County," and a
personal letter to the principal of each
school. The teachers are requested to
put a cony of the "appeal" into the
hands of every pupil, and co-operate
with us to make "Confeaerate Monu

success. Now "for a long pull, a
strong pull, and a pull altogether" and
Clarendon County will have a fitting
Memorial to OUR HEROES.-Mrs. F.

A Frank Explanation.
Editor Manning Times:
I am sorry that it becomes necessary
for me to take notice of, and reply to a
card which was published in your pa
per last week by Col. David W. Brails
ford. But since I was instrumental in
starting this movement several years
ago for the erection of a Confederate
Monument by the people of ourCounty,
and have worked for it, and am now
working for it, along with a committee
of seven patriotic ladies and many oth
ers who have undertaken the commend
able task, and who are, and have a
right to be offended by Col. Brailsford's
card; and further since I have been ap
nroached by members of the local
lodge who are also offended by Col.
Brailsford's gratuitous insinuations
against them, I deem it proper to make
some reply to this card. I ask that the
card be republished in full, which is
Panola. S. C., Jan. 29, 1914.
Mr. Editor:-I have waited with pa
tience and propriety for some of the
committee on entertainment to explain
how could they having just laid the
Corner Stone of a monument to the
dead confederate heroes, ignore the
presence of a score of no less heroic
Soldiers of the lost cause in the sumpt
urous banquet served to the visiting
Masons by the local lodge. Your cor
respondent of The News and Courier,
emphasises the entertainment of the
Masons and their thanks, and the in
dignant, and outraged public clearly
infers the veterans were not noticed.
or their presence desired at this ban
quet. If this be true, then the monu
ment while honoring the dead furnish
es an occasion for insulting their living
comrades. The public would suggest
that work upon the monument be dis
continued the same number of years
it took to start viz forty-eight, by
which time though obstinate as to de
parting, they will all be sleeping be
neath the Daises away from neglect
D. W. BRAILSFORD.
Now in the first place this is a move
ment to erect a Monument to the mem
ory of all the Confederate soldiers who
went to the front from Clarendon Coun
ty in defense of their country. When
the Monument is completed, and the
gallant Col. himself shall have passed
away, it will stand as a fitting mark
and tribute to his services also, along
with these brave Confederates who
have gone before and those who are
yet to follow and pass over the river.
On the recent occasion of the laying
of the Cornerstone, which was done by
the grand master of the masonic order,
the ceremonies were largely in charge
of the local lodge of Masons, who in
vited many visiting Masons from this
and other counties. The part played
by the local lodge was at the request
of this writer and the committee of
ladies who have the work in hand. We
appreciate very much the services of
the Masons. We appreciate also the
part that the local lodge, at. their own
expense, looked after and provided en
tertainment for the visiting Masons.
The ladies monument committee hiad
nothing to do with this,
There was no slight or insult intend
ed, or offered to anybody. The lodge
was not expected to entertain anybody
but their visiting brethern.
The ladies monument committee did
not entertain anybody, and are une :
no obligations to explain themselves to
Col. Brailsford's satisfaction. And be
sides this, Col. Brailsford did not show
enough appreciation of the occasion to
attend it, and I cannot see how he was
slighted. I have never heard any dis
gruntled or sore complaint from any
of the Confederate Veterans who were
present, all of whom seemed to enjoy
the occasion, and it therefore would
seem that Col. Brailsford himself alonel
constitutes "the indignant and outragedI
public" that he speaks of.
It does not seem graceful to me that
Col. Brailsford, with the sarcasm
which he uses; should suggest that the
monument should be discontinued for
forty-eighG years, now is any such a
suggestion entertained by "the public"
Col. Brailsford is mistaken in feeling
that he is "the public."

Manning, S. C., Feb. 5, 1914.
Editor of The Manning Times
I have just read the card from Col.
D. WV. Brailsford in your issue of Feb.
rary 4th, and beg. in the name of the
conmittee of ladies who now have
charge of the affairs of the Clarendon
County Confederate Monument Assc
elattori, sp~ace for a reply.
I am informed that Colonel Brails
ford was not present at the laying of
the corner stone January 19, and he
hs been misinformed, or has gathered
a wrong impression from the press re
0p:14 of that occasion. I will merely
State the facts in the case. There was
no "'Committee on Entertainment"' nor
was there any "'Banquet." The speaker
Dr. Howard Lee Jones of Charleston
was met at tbe depot and entertained
by his personal friend, Mr. J. K.
Breedin. The local lodge of masons
gave their guest, the visiting lodges
dinner-they could hardly do less, and
I suppose it was a nice dinner, as cour
tesy demanded it should be. The
masons very kindly invited the mem
bers of the band to dinner, thus saving
the Ladies Committee the expense of a
I do not believe that the "public"
feels either "indignant" or "outraged"
over anything that occured in Nan
ning on January 19, or that a single
one of the veterans, who honored the
occasion with their presence, felt that
he was "neglected" or "insulted"
Colonel Braiisford to the contrary not
withstanding. The monument which
will soon rise, stately and beautiful, in
the center of Clarendon county, is a
me'orial to "Our Heroes"-"The
Bos in Grey," whether they are yet
wih us or have "passed to that Bourne
from wvhence no traveler returns!"
May each one of the veterans. God
bes them: who witnessed the laying
of the corner stone, and every other
veteran providentially hindered from
that privilege, be here still May 10,

Canning Club Notes.
It has been thought for several years
that the development of the Farmers'
Co-operative. Demonstration work of
the United States Department of Agri
culture, would be incomplete unless
some work was inaugurated and or
ganized for the girls.
Dr. S. A. Knapp, the founder of
Demonstration work, started the ac
tive organization of the Boys Work and
said it would be necessary to start the
Girls just as soon as the Boys Demon
strations had been well advanced.
Consequently in 1910, The Girls Can
ning and Poultry Clubs were started in
South Carolina and Virginia, 325 Girls
were enrolled that year. The next
year over 3,000 girls were enrolled.
The work has met with marked suc
cess. Different States and Counties
are clamoring for a part in it.
As you know Clarendon County has
been forturnate enough to make plans
to carry on this work under the super
vision of Winthrop College and the
United States Department of Agricul
The objects of the Girls Demonstra
tion Work are:
1. To stimulate interest and whole
some co-operation-among members of
the family in the home.
2. To provide some means by which
the girls may earn money at home and
at the same time get the education and
view point necessary for the ideal farm
3. To encourage rural families to
provide purer and better food at lower
cost, and to utilize the surplus and oth
erwise waste products of the garden
4. To furnish earnest teachers, a
plan for aiding their pupils and helping
On Monday, Feb. 2nd, we began the
actual work of the Canning Clubs in
this County. Clarendon has been di.
vided into eleven districts or groups of
schools, as follows:
1. Trinity-Alcolu, Harvin, Harmony
Baywood and Enterprise.
2. Turbeville--Gamble, Coker, Hicks,
Wayside and McFaddin.
3. Oakdale-Evans, Baker, Barrow
4. DavisaStation--Jordan and Oak
5. Home Branch-Paxville.
6. Summerton-Panola, Cross Roads,
St. Paul and Silver.
7. Manning-Big Branch and Siiver.
8. Pinewood-Grange Hall, Pineland.
9. Deep Creek-Line, Rehoboth and
10. Foreston-Wilson. Live Oak, and
11. Sardinia-New Zion and Salem.

Girls from 10 to 18 years of age who
agree to plant and work one-tenth of
an acre in Tomatoes, carrying out the
instructions of the U. S. Bulletins, and
to keep a daily record of expenses,
times of planting, working etc., are
eligible. Any older may take the
course but cannot use the Club Labels.
The best results are obtained where
the co-operation of school offcers,
teachers and business men is most cor
dial, and I have faith enough in the
people of Clarendon to -believe that I
will get their hearty co-operation and
The Teachers can aid this work a
great deal by arousing interest and ex
plaining instructions, by the use of dif
ferent phases of Club Work for lessons
in nature study, language, drawing,
I feel sure that the farmers realize
that they have girls to rear as well as
cotton to grow and will give their sup
port by furnishing the one-tenth of an
acre, lots, implements, fertilizers, mon
ey for seeds, canning outfit etc.
There is an aesthetri as well as a
practical value to this work, for a girl
could hardly do it without getting into
flowers very soon. Now be a member
for a season without having a scientific
and praCtical knowledge of gardening,
greaier than that of many grown up
houiekeepers. Again, a girl who
learns some personal responsibility ino
caring for something at home, that is
her own, gains a training in careful
ness, acting upon her own judgment
and in knowing the value of money
which will make her business-like

Oak dale Graded School.
As notes from Oakdale have been
lacking for some time, perhaps those
interested in the progress of the school
would like to hear from us again.
Since the last time that notes were
sent in, the enrollment has increased
and there are now ninety pupils en
rolled. The average daily attendance
is very good.
For the past week services were held
at the school house at night, and Mid
way in the day.
The Trustees very kindly gave the
teachers Friday, so that they might at
tend the morning services at Midway.
On account of the short time between
the dismissal of school and the hour of
services the Sewing Club did not meet
on Wednesday, as it has ever since the
time of meeting has been changed from
Friday to Wednesday.

SOME THINGS SOME WOMEN ARE
Woman has been pushed out into the
world as a breadwinner by this modern
industrial age. Fifty-nine per cent of
the women between sixteen and twenty

are engaged in some gainful persuit.
I is interesting to note what some of
these pursuits are. There are 239,077
,stenogrnhers; 327,635 teachers and
professors; 481,159 in various trades;
770.055 engaged in agriculural pursuits:

LESSON FOR FEBRUARY 15.
CHRIST'S HATRED OF SHAMS.
LESSON TEXT-Luke 11:37-6.
GOLDEN TEXT-"Be not deceived; God
Is not mocked."-CGaL Z:.
This is a strange br akfast episode
(to "dine" means litc :ally, to break
fast). Jesus accepted three such
invitations from the Pharisees and
was accused of being a glutton and a
wine bibber, Matt. 11-19; Luke 7:36.
39, 44. In this instance we are told
- plainly (v. 54) 'why he had been asked
to this feast. At a later time, e. g.,
during the Passion week, Jesus deliv
ered a special discourse against the
Pharisees (Matt. 23) in which he re
peated many of the things we study
Must Be Clean.
L False vs. True cleansing (vv. 37
44). The orthodox Jew is very punc
tilious to avoid ceremonial uncleanli
ness. In Christ's time this ceremoni
alism was at its highest development.
To be defiled was far worse than to be
morally unclean. This Pharisee "mar
veled" that Jesus was not likewise
concerned with his outward acts (V.
39, se also Matt. 23:25, 26). To have
a clean cup and platter was more im
portant than to have a clean heart.
In a fragment of Gospel found at
Oxyrhyncus, Jesus is reputed to have
said to a Pharisee: "Thou hast
washed in waters wherein dogs and
swine have been cast, and wiped the
outside skin which also harlots
anoint and beautify, but within they
are full of scorpions and all wicked'
ness. But I have been dipped in the
waters of eternal life which come
from the throne of God." Pious plat
ters, presented in pride, must be In
Jesus pronounces three "woes,"
griefs that like an avenging nemesis
hang over men of such a character.
(1) A "woe" against those who make
a show of tithing the common garden
mint and herbs and at the same time
avoid the weightier matters of just te
lations to their fellow men and love
to God (v. 42). We are not to neg*
lect our churchly duties at all, but
these cannot be substituted t0t
righteousness (see Micha 6:8). (2)
A "woe" against chose who love the
places of pre-eminence (v. 43, ef. Matt
23:6, 7). This spirit has not departed
from the church after a lapse of cen
turies. It is unchristian. unchristlike.
The great one must be the servant of
all (Matt. 23:11, 20:28, John 13:14, 15.
Phil. 2:5-8). (3) (v. 43), The third
"woe" is directed against hypocrisy.
To touch a grave was to become an
clean, and hence they were white'
washed to give men warning. Mani
Christians are without beautiful to be

bones and all manner of nlaannlnnbn.
The Three Woes.
II. Real vs. Sham Lives (vy. 46
54). The lawyers were the theologians,
the expounders of the Mosaic law. Ev
idently the words of Jesus produced
great conviction. The word "reproach
est" (v. 45) means "to entreat spite'
fully," and the probabilities are that
he spoke to Jesus as If to rebuke him.
Jesus at once pronounces three woes
upon him and his class. (1) A "woe"
because they laid burdens upon others
which they themselves would not even
touch with one of their fingers (Matt
23:'4). That Is, they added to the law
minute and troublesome details.
which they declared to be more Im
portant than the law Itself. (2)
(v. 47) A "woe" is pronounced upon
them for honoring the dead prophets
and at the same time rejecting and
persecuting those that were living.
To honor dead teachers, to praise the
prophets of the past, those whom we
cannot endure while living, Is a form
of hypocrisy which costs but little. It
Implies that had they lived in the days
of theirs fathers their conduct would
have been indifferent, yet they are with
the living prophets, following the ex
ample of their fathers. God foresaw
this (v. 4'.) and the faithful minister
of his word must expect a like treat
meat (Mk. 10:29, 30). (3) (v. 12) The
third "woe" was pronounced against
these religious teachers because, pos
sessing the key to knowledge, they
neither entered themselves nor would
they allow others to enter; "ye enter
not in yourselves, neither suffer ye
them that are entering in to enter."
(Matt. 23:13, Am. Rv.). These law
yers. theologians, were professedly in
terpreters of the law, that law which
was the foundation and bulwark of the
Jewish nation. In fact, however, they
had so obscured and "explained" that
law as to leave men In darkness.
Supposed to lead men into truth, they
were shutting them out of the truth
What a terrible Indictment of many
of this present age.
We quote from the letter of a WIs
consin business man: "The average
man is Interested in the teachings of
the Bible. If the Bible cannot stand
upn its own feet, It Is foolish to bol
ster it up by any personal ideas. We
make too many apologies for Scrip
tures and do not stand squarely by
what it teaches." Not a few who oc
cupy the position of teachers obscure
the truth of Cod and they shut men
out of a real knowledge of him. Jesus
thus replies to both Pharisees and the
Ir-wyer, that character is not a gar
ment to wear, but it is the inward fun.
