The rivalry between Manning and
Summerton, from a baseball stand
point. has always been at fever heat,
and while our sister town has bested
us for so many years, we thought we
would put one over on them. On last
wednesday the "home hopes" traveled
over to Summerton thinking they had
a ball team, and pickings were a cinch,
but when the game ended, there was
weeping in the home camp,as Summer
ton had clipoed their wings 8 to 7.
Again they went back to try -and get
even, and again they were sent back
home, battered and beatten 6 to 1.

go: revenge, and won, think of it, Man

we went back to Summerton. and w.hen

sixth inning, the score we think, was
about 10 to 4 in Summerton's favor.
There wasa lot of wrangling during the
game, which we were sorry to see, but
the worse excuse we can rive for our
defeat was the big bats of the Summer
ton club. They looked as if they were
mad with the ball and drove it to all
corners of the outfield ar d dared the

Storm Does Damage in Sumter.
A wind and rain s:orm swept the
northern part of the county Friday
afternoon between 4 and 5 o'clock, do

other crops. In some places the roofs;
were blown from barns houses andJ
trees were uprooted. There was some,
hail in ulaces and lightning was ter
rific. The downpour was the heaviest!
which has been experienced in the
county this year
The storm came from the northeast,
seemingly, and corn was blown down
down flat or broken off in its path. Cot-|
ton was much damaged and tobacco
was stripped or torn to shreds. Otberi
crops suffered in like proportion. On
M r. H. L. Searboroughn's place at Rocky
Bluff, part of one of the barns was un
roofed and the grain crop in i. was
soaked. Mr. J. H. Hinson had part of
his barn tern off and his tobacco crop I
was ruined. On the edge of the city Dr.
N. G. Osteen, Jr., had one of the ebim

the roof. which gave way under it. A

"And I desire to read it without
causing comment. You see, I've never
been a churchgoer, and my business
associates and acquaintances have
not had feason to regard me as exact

see me reading a Bible at odd mo

seriously apprehensive or digusted, or
both. They'd probably remark some
thing like this:

pious, eh? And him not a bit better

NYE'S STUDY OF THE BEE
Humorist Went Almost as Deeply Into
His Subject as His Subject Did
I love to study bees, and once kept
bees myself. I often think of what a
late writer has said, "that within so
small a body should be contained an
apparatus for converting the various
sweets which it collects into one kind
of nourishment for itself, another for
the common brood, glue for its carpen
try; wax for its cells, poison for its
enemies, honey for its master, with a
proboscis as long as its body itself,
microscopic in several parts, teles
copic in its mode of action, with a
sting so exceedingly sharp that were
it magnified by the same glass which
makes a needle's point seem a quar
ter of an inch across, it would yet It
self be invisible, and this, too, a hol
low tube-that all these varied opera
tions and contrivances should be in
cluded within half an inch of length,
and two grains of matter, is surely
enough to crush all thoughts of athe
ism and materialism." The queen,
during the propagating season, lays
as high as two thousand eggs In a
day, and I have given much thought
to the grafting of the queen bee upon
the Plymouth Rock hen, with a view
to better egg facilities, but so far met
with but little success. My experi
ments have been somewhat delayed
by the loss of time in taking the swell
ing out of myself after each perusal of
the bee character in his or her home
life. A writer says the best way to
ascertain the location of the quecn is
to divide the gwarm, after which it
will be noticed that the one having

again, while the other portion will be

this myself, and noticed that they
were very restless. They also com
municated their restlessness to me.
All of us got restless. The drones are
the male bees of the hive. They do
no work, except to act in a parental
capacity and vote. They have no
stingers, but In its place they have a
good appetite and a baritone voice.
They are deetroyed by the workers
soon after the honey season, and the
widows have It all their own way.
About nine-tenths of the hive are
workers, or females, say, twelve to
fifteen thousand. These are the busy
bees referred to in books. They get
up early In the morning, eat a hasty
meal, and go out looking for honey.
They fly with great force, and as
straight as a bullet. Sometimes they
try to go through a man on their way
to the hive, but only get part way.
Harvard's New Degree.
Anticipation aroused by Harvard's.
announcement of a new degree, that
of Ph. D. in business economics, are
already being rapidly dissipated. In
stead of being a sign of proficiency In
standing Wall street upon its head,
the new degree turns out to be meant
for teachers rather than practition
ers of business. The academic trail,
as usual, is over it all. There are
ominous remarks about the free use of
books in French and German, and
something about being "well ground
ed" in European and American his
tory. The "fields" listed for the gee
eral examination of the candidate tfor
the new doctorate are more to the
point, although economic theory is
required for everybody instead of for
those only who do not intend to go
into business, and there is nothing in
the description of the courses In mar
keting, foreign trade, industrial man
agement and labor problems, and
money and banking, about laboratory
work. It is but too evident that our
most advanced universities still look
upon their business - courses as they
have long looked upon their law
courses-as convenient means of im
parting knowledge merely. If Har

Catless World in 1920?
With the slogan "Song birds for
ever and a catless-world in 1920," R.
Sayre, one of the largest individual
farm owners in North Dakota, has ar
rived from Chicago to look after his
interests, which surround Devil'd
Lake, says a Devil's Lake (N. D.)
Sayre's campaign against tabby has
advanced so far that he is offering
prizes to persons killing the most cats.
In a leaflet issued by the enemy of
the cat the household pet is pictured
as the most vicious, disease-carrying,
germ-ridden animal in the world.
Truth Establish d.
Samuel Joyner, living near Sandie
field village in the Berkshires, saw a
bear crossing a snow-covered swamp.
When he related the incident the vil
lagers doubted him. Next morning he
drove to the swamp, cut out blocks
of szor bearing bruin's footprints
and, driving back to the village,
placed the bear's tracks on exhibition.
Brown Spots on Old China.
The beauty of old china is often de
stroyed by brown spots which appear
on the surface, says the Toledo Blade
An effective way to remove these is

Robin Hood Tradition.
The part of the English coast which
recently suffered from German bom
bardment was connected with Robin
Hood. Tradition says that from Whit
ney towers he and Little John used to
shoot at long range with their Englfra
bows, and a bay a little south of this
town bears to this day the name of
Robin Hood's bay. This would seem
to bear out the belief of Louis Rhead.
author and .illustrator of "Bold Robin
Hood," that Robin Hood was an actual
living p'tsonage and that his words
and deeds continue to be a faniliar
part of the Anglo-Saxon heritage.'
