Item of Monday 25th.
The news of the death of Mrs.
Evandar G. Stukes at Davis Station
last Sunday was received in Manning
with deep regret. Mrs. Stukes was
formerly Miss Placedla Shorter, and at
one time before her marriage held a
position with D. Hirschmann. where
she developed fine business ability, and
was popular with those she came in
contact with. This community sin
cerely sympathizes with the grieved
husband and the four little children.
Evangelist B. F. McLendon is soon
to come to Manning to conduct a series
of meetings. We have never heard Mr.
McLendon, but from his reputation we
believe be will do a great deal of good
here. His work at Pinewood, from all
accounts, is little abort of wonderful,
and while Manning and its surround
ings is far ahead of many places moral
ly. yet there is always room to be bet

like to see this community as good as
the best will give every encourage

- S. I. TILL. -
There can be no better proof of the
culture and refinement of a nation than
its taste for a fine quality -of music. In
the more thickly populated cities and
towns, these features are prominently
discernible. The axe and the plough
have had their day and done their
work so far as cities are concerned.
The gloom of t~je forest has given way
to magnificient cities, with substantial
and imposing structures, well paved
streets to industry, commerce, educa
tilon and refinement. The leisure and
opportunities which wealth affords,
have offered opportunities to the sons
and daughters of our common inhabi
tants for the acquisition of those
branches of learning of the higher
kind, giving scope to the cultivation
of native talent that would have other
wise remained dormant or lost. Music
while it is said to "Soothe the savage
breast" is elevating and refining In its
tendency and therefore the finer the
music, the more beneficial must be its
effects. The City of Sumter and South
Carolina in particular is deservedly en
titled to the distinction of being re
fined, as is evidenced among other
things, by its music establishments,
and suffice it to confine ourselves to the
best in this article namely the estab
lishment of Mr. S. I. Till, which is
eligibly located at No. 23 West Liberty
St. This business was established in
1911, and has ever held a high reputa
tion througbout the state, and the
counties of Sumter, Ciarendon, Lee,
Orangeburg, Calhoun and Florence.
The premises occupied for the business
are very extensive, being 26x80 feet in
dimensions. These are magnificently
fitted up in consonance with their pur
pose of being a temple of music. A
large and fine assortment of pianos,
self-plaving pianos and organs is at all
times oni hand, Mr. Till handling the
celebrated pianos of the Hallett &.
Davis, which is Boston's leading piano
and has been for 75 years. It is the
only high grade piano being sold direct
from the factory to the home at factory
prices on convenient terms. It is used
in more than 50 of the leading musical
colleges in America. Mr. Till makes
a specialty of the "Virtuolo"-it is the
new instinctive player-piano that does
not produce mechanical music. ~ Hear
it. Compare it, try it, 30 days in your
home free; and the organs of Shipmnan,
of High point, N. C. He also has a
complete stock of sheet music.. Mr.
Till carries one of the largest music
trades in Eastern South Carolina and
it will be seen from the list of pianos,
player-pianos and organs which he
handles that he only deals in first-class
goods, and same is to be said of every
department. Mr. Till is a native of
Orangeburg county, a member of the
K. of P. and is an energetic business
man, who has a thorough knowledge of
the instruments in which he deals, is
widely popular and i.s eminently quali
fied to carry on a business of this kind,
and is proved by his singular success.

Summertoa, May 24-The entertain
ments usually attendant upon the
closing exercises of a high school have

school, consisting of Misses Noddie
Briggs, Edna Davis, Helena Fischer,

Joseph Cantey and Rodgers Mood, were
tendered a reception by the ninth
grade. Decorations of garnet and
gold, the class colors, were used in the

the punch bowl which stood in the
rear of the hall was lovely in its profu
sion of roses and daisies. One of the
chief features of the evening was the
number of excellent toasts given.
Music was rendered at intervals during
the evening, as the 60 odd guests min
gled together in conversation, except
when interrupted to take part in a few
amusing contests prepared for the oc

most pleasantly spent

president of the graduating class, Mr.
and Mrs. J. M. Richardson gave a

The love in my heart for her will.
never cease, and I hope and trust to
meet her in heaven.
A LOVING BROTHER.
ECCENTRIC DE QUINCEY.
He Often Greeted Visitors While Half
Dressed and Dare Footed.
De Quinoey's habits were so simple
as to be almost ascetic, and he subsist
ed upon the lightest possible diet. His
digestive trouble and neuralgic suffer
ing, which first led to his taking opium,
caused him early to lose his teeth,
and from the extreme delicacy of his
system he could eat nothing less capa
ble of mastication than bread, so that
article with a little soup or coffee was
apt to comprise his whole dinner.
In reference to his manner of dress
his daughter has said:
"His dress, unfortunately, he neither
cared for himself, nor would he let
others care for it. I say unfortunately,
because his carelessness gave rise
among punctilious people, unaccustom
ed to eccentric habits, to an impres
sion of poverty for which there was no
foundation. It might be that a thought
occurred to him in the midst of some
of his irregular processes of dressing
or undressing (I should say some
thought did generally strike him at
that time), and he would stop with his
coat just taken off, or not put on, with
out stockings at all, or with one off and
one on, and becoming lost In what
grew out of this thought, he would
work for hours, hardly even noticing
the coffee which was his- chief support
at such times.
"in the midst of this absorbing work
would arrive visitors, of whom there
were many. probably from such a dis
tance that they could not be turned
back without sight of the object of
their long pugrinmage, upon which my
father, with the unaffected courtesy
which was one of the great charms of
his character. would appear at once
rather than keep them waiting while
he put on his stocking, or whatever
may be wanting or which was just
likely in the wrong place. giving rise
to awed impressions of poverty with
some, while those who could withdraw
their unaccustomed eyes from the na
kedness of the land, as exspounded by
his feet, might have seen In his sur
roundings signs of scrupulous neat
ness, sufficent comfort and refinement
enough to reassure them on this point.
"His presence at home was the sig
nl for a crowd of beggars, among
whom, borrowed babies and drunken
old women were sure of the largest
share of the sympathy he refused to
none." - From Carolne Ticknor's
"Hawthorne and His Publisher."
Going Astray on the Correct Use of
"u" and "ow" Sounds.
A curious feature of the English lan
guge as It Is spoken in this part of
the United States Is the prevalence of
a dual system of pronunciation. The
dictionaries tell us unequivocally that
we should pronounce "dew," "knew"
and "stew" as we do "few," and that
"student," "stupid" and similar words
should be enunciated as If they were
spelled "stiendent" and "stiupid."
Nobody, apparently, disputes the cor
rectness of this manner of pronounc
ing "ii" and "ew"--yet here is a rule
very much more honored in the breach
than In the observance. Except for
stage folks, the faculties and some of
the students of schools and .colleges
and a few persons who make a point of
precise spaking, the academic sound
of "u" is disregarded almost univer
It is by no means through ignorance
that people say "stoo" and "stoopid."
There are worthy persons who seem
to feel that a good American really
ought to say "stoo" and "stoopid."
They think, apparently, that the ortho
dox "u" and "ew" are Anglicisms and
are used in this country only by per
sons pedantic or "affected."
Of course, for all practical purposes
one way of pronouncing is as good as
another and usage has made both
forms correct. Nevertheless, the right
use of "u" and "ew" adds musIc and
variety to the English language, and
the younger generation might do well
to pronounce according to the diction
ary and gradually overcome an "Amer
ianism" that has no real good excuse
for being.-Rochester Democrat and
Rubinstein disapproved of marriage
for musicins. Just before his death
he spoke sadly of his. Russian lady
pupils. "What have I wasted all my
time on them for?" he asked irritably.
"Every one married! It's too provok
g! Here they are, spoiled forever for
art life. What did they study for?'
The London Musical World remarks
that "thosc who ask why we have no
great lady composers may be left -to
think of these things."
