It is the very nature of'children to
hurt themselves-to come crying to
mother with little fingers bruised,
with heads bumped, with sprained
4nkles; and wrists.
They are painful hurts, too. But
their pain and sting can't survive the
gentle use of this liniment. A single
application of Sloan's Liniment and
- the little fellow's bravely kept
back tears give way to smiles. His
hurt is relieved.
In. every home where there are
children a bottle of Sloan's Liniment
is a necessity.

THE NEW MANNING TIMES.
With this edition of The Manning Times we go be
fore the people with a brand new outfit, one that is sec
ond to none in the State, with the exception of some of
the daily papers in the large cities. The installation of
this plant means that we are now in a position to do
the finest. kind of work and do it quickly. Mr. F. M.
Shope, who is an expert printer and newspaper man will
be general manager and under him he will have
three good printers. Everything will be done by
power. In making these changes we have decided to cut
down the number of columns to six, thus giving our ad
vertisers better positions. This plant has cost us sev
eral thousand dollars, as we bough the best, but if hard
work, perseverance and honest methods count for any
thing we are satisfied of the future. The Times has been
among you for thirty-five years, and we expect to stay.
We are always glad for our friends. to come in to see us,
and we extend to you our invitation to inspect our new
paI You have stuck to us through adverse times and
prosperity, we in turn have always tried to reciprocate
in like manner, and to show our appreciations for what
you have done for us we have put in this expensive plant,
so as to serve you in a more efficient way.
The Clarendon County Fair which opens in Manning
next Wednesday the 15th and runs for three days is a
matter which should merit the interest and atendance of
everybody throughout the County. The fair held last
year was the first one of its kind ever held ih the County,
and its sucess as a beginning is a guarante that the one
to be held this year will be large and better than the first
one. *The fact that a man of the character and energy
and public spiritedness of Mr. W. T. P. Sprott, who is
really the father of the County Fair is the president of
the fair association and is still devoting his energies to
the success of the fair is a guarantee that the County
Fair this year wyill be a credit to Clarendon County. An
examination of the premium list will show that there
are many good and public spirited men and women work
ing to make the fair a success this year, and we com
mend it to the people throughout the County that they
come and see the exhibition.
The fair is not a county seat affair-by any means but
it is a county -wide proposition and belongs to the peo
ple of the entire County. The fair was not gotten up
for the purpose of making money for anybody, but for
the purpose of bringing the people of Clarendon together
n closer touch with each other socially and commercially,
and that everybody might learn something from what
other people are doing. If you are farming you can learn
something by coming and seeing what your fellow farm
ers of the County are doing. If you are raising cattle
or hogs or poultry, you can get some good points by see
ing what your neighbors are doing along the same hnes.
Clarendon County is not prosperous this year. We are
very much depressed in business matters. We are making
only one-third of a cotton crop and scarcely fifty per
cent of a corn crop. The next year will be hard. So
much the more, then, do we need the benefit of rai the
practical ideas we can get in matters of agriculture,
economy and general progress. We need a general com
munity interest, and a closer touch with :al4 the rest of
t: ' ople of our County. All the elections of the year
h. been held. There will be no more politicS 'and noth
ing to divide the people for the next twelve -months or
more. Then let everybody eome together for the sake
of mutual benefit and progress and good feeling and har
mony and improved methods for the betterment of our
individual interests and our common County.
There will be at the fair many creditable exhibits in
all kinds of produce and -horses and cattle and hogs and
poultry and .preserved goods and canned goods and fancy
work and curious and other things which will interest
everybody. -The fair will show to our citizens that Char
endon ie"one of the best counties in the State and that
heretofore we have bee~n sleeping on our opportunities.
The fair will bring the people together in common inter
est and sympathy. It will show them what can be done
in the County and make every min and woman and child
in the County more proud and loyal to our County than|
we ever were before. Let everybody attend the County
Fair andA bring- their exhibits. Let us all have a friendly,

Babies Do Not Know the Danger of
A dollar and a half for a fire
screen will perhaps save the baby's
life. A mother told me the other
day about her baby being left alone
just a minute or two. A coal rolled
down from the fireplace, and as a re
sult, a burned child.
- Give baby her bath every day, just
the same as in summer. She will like
it just as well if you have a stove by
which to bathe her. A fireplace does
not give the same dry warmth that a
stove does. Do not let baby sleep
with mother and father. She will not
get cold if you put plenty of warm
bed clothes underneath as well as
above. 'Do not use 'quilts on he'r bed
but use sheets, all wool blankets and
coverlets stuffed with 'either soft
feathers or washed and teased wool.
These give the largest amount of
warmth with the least amount to
weight. - ,
