VOL. XXXIX MANNING, S. C., WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 1919
HOLD fRANCIS WILLARD
MEMORIAL SERVICES IN
A large and appreciative audience'
filled the Methodist church Sunday
night, February 16, on the occasion
of the Annual Francis Willard Memo
rial Service. The meeting was open
ed by singing "How Firm a Founda
tion," which was Miss Willard's favo
rite hymn. Rev. L. B. McCord pre
sided and conducted the devotional
service. The choir rentiered "Victory"
in an effective manner. The State and
local President of the W. C. T. U.
in a short talk explained the object
of the meeting, stressing the fact that
though National Prohibition in the
United States is assured, the war
against the Liquor Traffic is not fin
ished--that the battle cry "World
Prohibition in 1925," is now the
slogan of the W. C. T. U., the Anti
Saloon League and all Temperance
organizations. The feature of the
evening was the strong appeal of
Rev. C. B. Smith. Mr. Smith in burn
ing woris, told how this great prohi
bition victory was the logical outcome
of the Day of Penticost when that
wontierful program of the World's
Redemption, the triumph of righteous
ness over the forces of evil, was set
in motion by a handful of men and
women who were scoffed at and con
sidered a set of mad fanatics. He
warned his hearers that vigilence and
quick work were necessary for already
the distillers and brewers were laying
their plans to move their business to
China, Mexico and other countries.
While the generous collection was be
ing taken, Miss Swartz played a beau
tiful selection on the violin. Mrs.
Sprott announced that the National
W. C. T. U. was preparing to celebrate
its Jubilee, the 50th anniversary of its
organization, by raising $1,000,00G,
this year to carry out its world-wide
plans, and to increase its member
ship to 1,000,000 by 1924. The pres
e t membership is something over a
The meeting was closed by singing
the stirring song, "Oh Sound the
Jubilee," and the benediction by Rev.

CIVIC LAGUE HOLDS
The Manning Civic League held its
regular monthly meeting on February
19th with 22 members present, which
is an evidence of the interest taken
in the League by its members. Owing
to which; the League is in a most
flourishing condition. The member
ship roll shows that the 100 mark has
been reached and passed by the ad
dition of twelve new members, who
were voted upon, and elected at the
February meeting, namely: Mrs.
Jesse T. Orvin, Miss Emily Broad
way, Mrs. Bessie Lesesne, Mrs. E. S.
Ervin, Mrs. J. I. Bomar, Mrs. W. G.
Smith, Mrs. Stabler, Mrs. Horace
Thomas, Mrs. .1. E. Arant, Mrs. H. B.
Ennis, Mrs. H. L. Crouch, Mrs. In
gram Bradham. There could have
been no better time for these many
good workers to wisi' to have a hand
in our "City Beautiful" than now, as
the League has laid plans for a very
busy year, and all members will have
to lend their cooperation in a very
substantial way for the work to be
accomplished. The members present
were most interestingly entertained
by a short talk by Mrs. Oliver Plow
den on the County Demonstration
Club, which club, deals not only with
Civics alone, but with sanitation, eco
nomics - and educattonal problems.
After hearing Mrs. Plowden's force
ful talk, it was discussed at length,
if the League should take up this
wonderful and broad field of work.
A fter all pros and cons were taken
up, it was decided to add this work
to our League, which has been done
with Mrs. Jesse T. Orvin as chairman
of this branch of the work.
There has been over $60.00 realized
from the chain of teas, which is not
at an end yet, as there are still quite
a few ladies to entertain, and the
money from these yet to be had will
add greatly to the comfort and care
of the little French girl orphan to be
supported by these ladies. The Rum
mage Sale held on the 15th of Feb
ruary was also quite a success, and
the League wishes to thank each an:!
every one who contributed to this
sale. The next regular meeting of
the League will be helid on the 17th
of March, at the Court 1louse, and
at this meeting the League will have
the great pleasure of hearing Dr.
Riser of Columbia give a talk on the
new branch of the League, has added
to the work and it is to be hoped
there will be many members out to
