Last Thursday afternoon about four
'clock an alarm of fire was sent in
rom the Manning Electric plant, when
t was discovered to be burning. The
ire department responded promptly
,nd through their hard work, the
ilant was saved with a very small dam
.ge. Undoubtly the new auto truck
which has only been in service a few
eeks, has proven to be one of the best
nvestments our city has ever made. If
his fire had gained two or three more
ninutes headway, Mr. Harvin the

rom the time the alarm was sent in,
here were three streams of water
)laying on the fire, due absolutely to the
peed of the truck. The boys deserve
nuch credit for the waty they handled

Civic Leaga: Meeting.
At a meeting of the civic league,
ield March 27th, the question of con
,inuing the work of the up-keep of the
,emetery was brought to the atten
,io of the thirteen members present.
end it was unanimously decided to dis
ontinue their work, advising the Cem
,tery Association of this decision.
During the visit of Miss Maud Van
3uren, the civic expert who visited
he league on March 20-21, many ques.
ions were asked by her in regard to
he league organization, its works, etc.
he expressed surprise at the idea of a
ivic league undertaking Cemetery
rork, and brought out the fact that she
ad never heard of any civic league
ending the effort in this direction.
This expression, coming as it did
rom one who had had such wid - ex
>erience in civic welfare strengt Lnea
he position that had already been
aken by some of the members, that
he time had come for the selection of
nly such work as would be in line
vith other civic leagues.
In introducing this subject for dis
:ussion at the league meeting, March
|th, just one week after Miss Van
3uren's visit, the Vice-President who
iroght the matter up referred es
>ecially to Miss Van Buren's remarks
in the subject, and the force of this
argument was so conclusive as to in
luce many who were deeply attached
o the work at the Cemetery to vote
or its discontinuance.
The league feels that the public gen
rally, and especially those members
rho have been unable to attend meet
ngs, should be informed that the ac
,ion of the league in regard to this
natter was entirely spontaneous, no
nfluence other than the one expressed
ibove being brought to bear upon the
nembers in the step taken by them,
l other reports to the Cemetery be
ng entirely unreasonable.
Following the action of the league,
t a meeting held on Aprii 17th at
rhich 21 members were present, the
ollowing Resolution was offered and
Resolution: Resolved, that the civic
eague extend to Mrs. Joseph Rigbyi
nd her Committee, a vote of thanks

By a vote of 15 to 3 the following Res
lution was adopted:t

nends that said Committee be appoint
d by the Cemetery Association to con-]

The league was advised at its meet-<
ng, through a letter received from the
~resident, Mrs. W. C. Davis, of the t
doption of a Resolution by the Ceme
ery Association as follows: . C

In reproducing articles from our old

on of Manning, wbo was one of the
nost prominent citizens Clarendon
ounty has ever known.
"Tweive times the iron tongue of

tttended to his business as usual, on
hat same day he was taken sick and
20t until Sunday afternoon did his con
lition become alarming, all that med
cal skl1 and tender and affectionate
ttention could do, was done. and at
idnight he breathed his last. The
ext morning his name went from lip
:o lip in whispered reverential tones,
he town was saddened in the loss of
>ne of the best citizens.
Col. Barron was a friend to mankind,
is heart was tender and true and no
:ne was turned away from him. He
will be missed by his large circle of
acquaintances an] many friends
throughout the State. His family has
lost a devoted husband and loving
[ather, whose presence made home su
premely happy, his church and his
loages-Masonic and Knights of Pyth
ias-a faithful supporter. his neighbors
i kind and courteous friend, whose
warm heart and cordial grasp always
:ave ther sincere welcome-all will
miss hint and mourn his demise.

Mrs. Jay McGee, of Steph

nine (9) years, I suffered with
I womanly trouble. I had ter

I would die, I suffered so. At
t last, I decided to try Cardul,
the woman's tonic, and it
helped me right away. The
full treatment nor only helped
me, but it cured me."
- J TAKE
The Woman's Tonic
Cardud helps women In time
of greatest need, because It
contains ingredients which act
specifically, yet gently, on the
weakened womanly organs.
So, if you feel discouraged,
blue, out-of-sorts, unable to
4 do your household work, on
account of your condition, stop
worrying and give Cardui a
trial. It has helped thousands
of women -why not you?
