Friday afternoon. about 4 o'clock a
horse belongingr to Rees Green, a col
ored man, who lives beyond Shady
Side, was killed when it ran into the
big plate glass front of D. C. Shaw
Motor Co.'s show room The two horses
were hitched to a wagon and for some
unknown cause had become frightened
and ran away. They were going up
Sumter Street at full speed until they
reahed the corner of Hampton Ave
nue, when in endeavoring to turn they
ran into the glass in front of the Shaw
Company office and show room. One
of the horses endeavored to turn
and was cut only about the feet by the
glass. while the other animal reared
upon the glass and then came down on
it. the glass striking it in the stomach
near the bind legs and completely dis
emboweling it. The horse was then
pulled back out of the building by its
mate and Mr. Plowden ran out of the
buiding and cut the two animals loose.
However, the injured horse was in such
a pitiable condition as itstood in the
street with its intestines hanging
out that those standing nearby had pity
on it and killed it at once by striking
it in tbe head with an axe.-Snmter

THiE MOST POPULAR S
Welcome To The New Fastor.
A very interesting service was held
at the Methodist church on last Sunday
evening at 7:30 o'clock. It was a un
ion service for the purpose of extend
ing a welcome to the new Methodist
pastor, Dr. Watson B. Duncan. After
te Opening services Rev. McCord of
te Presbyterian church, took charge
and introduced the speakers. Hon. J.
H. Lesesne represented the town and
in fitting words welcomed the new min
ister as a force in the intellectual and.
moral uplift of the community. Mr.
Lesesne indulged in some reminiscence
and referred to the time when Mr.
Duncan first came to Manning. ex
changing pulpits with the late Rev.
Henry M. Mood who was then Pastor
of the church here. The speaker re
membered the text upon which Mre.
Duncan preached that day and also re
frred to the suggestion that perhap's
the young minister had some other
notive that time besides preaching the
Gospel in Manng. He said that a
very serious blow was given the church
here a little later when the visiting
minister married tbe organist.
Hon. Chariton DuRant represented
the Methodist church and in fitting
words extended a very gracious wel
come to the incoming pastor. Mr. Du
Rant said that he was glad to welcome
ta the commnunity a man whom many
of the people here knew and loved. On
behalf of the entire church the speaker
peged the new pastor hearty sym
pathy and co-operation.
Mr. Wilkins represented the Baptls
in the absence of the pastor of that
church who was prevented from being
present by sickness. Mr. Wilkins'
talk was brief but hearty.
The Rev. Mr. McCord spoke for the
resbyterians and spoke very feelingly
of the spirit, in which the Presbyter
ians of Manning welcomed the new
preacher. Mr McCord, using Presby
terian phraseology, spoke of "install.
ing" Dr. Duncan.
Mar. Dancan was very happy over the
hearty welcome and expressed high
appreciation of the kind words that
had been spoken.
The occasion was a very delightful
one and was greatly enjoyed by all
present. A splendid program of mus
ic added to the occasion.

LURING WILlD GEESE.
Live Decoys Are Often Used and Made
.. to Play the Traitor. .
American wild geese each spring ini
grate from waters of the southern
states to the shores of the Arctic in
northern Canada. The two great com
mon varieties of the bird are the honk
ers and the wavy, or white, goose.
Bo0th "f these are extensively hut
ed. Covering. ais they do. about 5.000'
miles on their annual migration. these
birds rest at v-arious !>laces -en route
and are thus shot by sportsmen almost
across the length of the continent. The
birds have a peculiar trait of always
leaving one of their number .on look
out while the rest feed..
To aid in the shooting of wild geese
live wild ones, captured young and
raised in captivity, are often placed in
feeding grounds in likely territory on
the line of flight of the migrating
ocks. These decoys arec terrible trai
tors and by their calling often brinf
the flying ones within shooting dis
tance of the sportsmen. who lie in hid
den lits near at hand.
rainted decoys. sha ped like geese and
made of steel, are also used by the
hunters. In the latter case the men.
from their hiding place in the pits, call
the birds by using a goose c-alL, a metal
instrume.s lke a flnte, which ,mimics
the sound of the goose with remarka

By the Use of Wax and Acids Etchings
May Easily Be Made.
U'sually a aman attempts to put his

scratching with a file or knife polar
and mai~kes the poorest sort of a job.
It is really very easy to write on any
metal-the blade of a jackknife, a

know how. :and the attractiven'ess of
the inscription is !. aited only by the
artistic ability of the individual.

being particulI:rr to cut the letters
through the wax to the metal.
Then mix one ounce of nmariatie acid
and one-half of an ounce of nitric acid.
or smaller quantities in the same pro
portions (and remember that those
acids are deadly poisons), and apply
the mixture to tihe lettering with a
feather, carefully filing each letter.
Allow the acids to remain from one
to ten minutes, according as the etch
ig is to be light or deep. Next dii)
the article in water, wash out the acids
and moelt off' the wax, and the thing Is
done. A little oil should be applied as
a fonishing touch. Gold, silver, Iron
or steel can be marked in this way.
