We have made it a rule to not give
out any copies of The Times before
they are put in the postoffice. We
make this mention so that those who
have been making it a practice of get
ting the paper before it is mailed, will
understand it if they are turned down.
This is an old rule of all regulated
newspapers, and we propose to adhere
to it in the future.
Feast and your friends are many; fast
and they cut you dead; they'll not get
mad if you treat them bad, so long as
their stomachs are fed. Steal if you
get a million, for then you can furnish
bail; it's the great big thief who gets
out on leave, while the little ones get
to jail. Advertise and the dollars
come to you, quit and they fail to come
in, for what care the men who have
money to spend, for the nen who don't
care to see them.
Just at this time the mail order
houses are active in flooding the coun
try with big, handsomely gotten up
catalogues, quoting attractive prices on
staple articles and making all sorts of
big sounding claims for your cash.
They do not offer -to exchange their
goods for the farmer's eggs, poultry,
butter or other produce. Tbey don't
trust a penny's worth. but make you
pay cash before you get the goods and
the freight besides. If anything is
wrong with the goods or they do not
suit you, they will not exchange them.
They pay no taxes into your city or
county treasury, with which our
schools are maintained, roads. bridgzes
and sidewalks built. They do not con

that we ann

The town put the "lid" on coca cola
good and strong last Sunday and those
whose palates called for "cold dope'
every Sunday could only be quenched
with water. In the afternoon some
fellow placed on the front of the pos1
office the following notice, with a piece
of crepe around it. "The relatives
and friends of Col. Cold Sunday Dope:
who came to his sudden and untimely
end at 7:30 this a.tm., are respectfully
invited to attend funeral services to b
held at 12 o'clock to night."
A wisely conducted newspaper is
like a banquet, says an exchange.
Everything is served up with a view
to variety. Help yurself to what you
want and do not condemn the entire
spread because pickles and onions may
be included. If you do not relish
them somebody else may find them
palatable. Be generous and broad
enough to select gracefully such read
ing matter from newspapers as will be
agreeble to your mental taste, You,
as an individual, are not compelled to
swallow everything. We do not all
think aliite on every subject and it is a
ood tbing, as it makes more variety,
and variety is the spice of existence.
The half page advertisement of Tbe
Eome Bank and Trust Company in this
issue of The Times furnishes some re
iable and interesting information for
the tobacco growers. It shows from
rhe official report of E. J Watts, comn
missioner of commerce etc., that out of
.4 tobacco markets in the State in 1914
Manning was in the lead as to prices.
rhe average price paid for tobacco in
L915 in the entire State was $4.31 per
bundred, some markets running as low
as $3.30, while the average price paid
by the Manning market was $5 42.
rhe Home Bank and Trust Company
has always shown a lively interest in
he welfare of the tobacao p:-oducer,
as well as the farming interests gener
ally. This reliable bank is solictong
your business, and deserves your con
ideration. Hon. Charlton DurRant,
tate Senator-elec:, is President, and
Mr. T. Mitch Wells is cashier. These
:ourteous gentlemen are two well
known to the public to need further
sommendation. We ask our readers
o caref uliy read the advertisement of
rhe Home Bank and Trust Company.
As an example of good business
methods and vim and determination,
Dickson's Drug Store deserves special
notice. On the 7th of May this reliable
Irug concern was demolished by the
torm. Although the building was a
mass of ruin, and the stock of goods
lmost utterly destroyed, they moved
into temporary quarters until they
could rebuild. They have now moyed
back into their handsome and well
equipped new building, and the place
is one of the most convenient and up
to date, as well as one of the most re
iable drug stores in every particular
to be found in the State. The honest
and reliable business, with courteous
men to run it~al ways commands a good
patronage, and this is what Dickson's
Drug Store merits and receives. Dr.
Dickson is the sole proprietor, and lie
always has competent and reliable and
ourteus men to serve the public.
We invite our readers to examine the
ivert isement of this reliable house in
Ghis issue, and remember that when
e~ver anything to be found in a well
rdered drug store is wanted, they
