TE VA.UE OF TEE BIBLE.
(Contibuted by Jno. P. Thames.)
The value of the Bible is not
nly the revealer of 'he un

rand interpreter as the God of
ature. In revealing God, it
as given us the Key that un

It is only when we stand and

ro you, that landscape of ex

aments of departed genuis, with
its distant classic mountains, its
leep blue sea, and its bright
bending skies, will be telling a
bale of glory that the Grecian

bo us no more of thirty thousand

Who can stand amid scenes

The Times is in receipt of 'a
letter which we print this week,
from Rev. A. W. Timmons, pas
tor of the colored Methodist
church at Manning, and which
is full of godo sense and sound
advice to the colored citizens of
Manning. He advises the people
to go to work, and if they can
not get one dollar a day for good
and faithful work, then work for
seventy-five cents a day, but by
no means remain idle, because
they cannot get all they want as
wages. This is not only good
advice to colored people, but
there is much of sound thought
in it also to be considered by
white people. The South is
passing through hard times, and
things are not as any of us
would have them, but energy
and a willingness to do what
ever we turn our hands to in the
way of making an honest living.
the friendly co-operation of all
classes, and the exercise of the
proper economy will solve the
whole problem. An idle mind
is the devil's workshop, and the
man who is willing to grasp the
opportunities which are nearest
to him will never suffer for

county, we boarded the North Western
Special, for Sumter, and at Silver a
good crowd was waiting for the special,
and at Paxville quite a crowd boarded
the train, reaching Sumter we soon
found ourselves at the large Tiabe

3700 people were waiting to heat- the

such a large audience at a gathering
for the purpose of heariug the gospe-l

time was consumed in taking up a col

during these twenty minutes $1420.97
was subscribed, and Mr. Truedale .the
Methodist minister said, Mr. Jones had
done a great work for Sumter and this
section of the Stat~e and he wanted to
make him think that his elots had
been appreciated, and that hie hoped
by the afternoon and evening contribu
