THE MANNING TI
LY E. COPELA
On last Suday, Easter, was cele
brated in Summerton . through ser
vices in the vario. churches in town.
Able sermons were preached by -the
pastors of each congrigjijagood
crowd being present at each service.
The churches were unusually deco
I rated with flowers which character
i7es the period of the life of Christ
.for 'which ,the Eastertide' is dedicated.
At no other time in the year does
one feel more ardent in his determi
nation to be present in his respective
church, than when we hold services
sacred to the memory of One, who
bore his own Cross to Golgotha, there
to be crucified, that he give his own
dear life for the sake of others, and
having in his bosom the very spirit
of the almighty God and was resur
rected from the dead on this beautiful
morn, which we call Easter. Sum
merton is exceedingly fortunate to
have in her various churches and
places of worship an able pastor to'
fully explain the true meaning of this
glad Eastertide, that we may ex
emplify the life of the Saviour in
whose memory such services are held.
The past week there has been very
little or comparatively no rain and
this has caused the tobacco planters
no little worry as most of the to
bacco that has beeun transplanted in
this section has suffered greatly from
the drought. However they ray that
it is not by any means too late and
that if we can get a good shower in
a few days which is, as a rule very
frequent in April, everything will
come around all right and with the'
tobacco warehouse completed by July
1st, Summerton will be a mecca for
all the folks in the surrounding com
munity and things will begin to liven
here in July, the month which form
erly was a very "dead" one, as far
as business was concerned. This is
what Summerton has needed for the
past three years and we are glad
to see our good people awake to the
Now that summer is near, why not
get up a good base ball team in i
Summerton and help pass away the
time these long afternoons? As
most of the boys are back at home
and Suminerton has some very goo.1
ex-Stars on her roster we see no
reason that we should not have some
very good games with our sister
towns like MNanning, Sumter, Kings
tree and others? Everybody likes to
see a real good base ball game, and
with the prospects we have ien Sum
merton, it looks like we might have
a leader if the team could be suc
cessfully organizer and managed.
What about it boys?
Some time ago there applearedl an
article in this column in which was
stated that work was to seen comn
nence on the tobacco warehouse in
Summerton but up to the present
time such has not yet been the case.
H~owever, we gather from ditforent
parties that it was the intent ion oft
the stockholders to have the ware- I
hous readyv to market the coming
Prop at home in Sum merton, which
we all agree will be the thing for h
the merchants of Summerton to get ,h
!)ehind and p~ush if they wvant andit
leed1 the tobacco money that will pre- J
rail wvhen the crop is ready for the a
narket. Last year there was a great.Lu
leal of tobacco planted around Sunm
nerton, of course a much less acre- 0
Lge than we find this present year,
>ut the c'rop was vathered and mar

isually where the farmer finds the N
'est market for his tobacco there is N
vhere he is prone to go andl leaves w
-good amount of money there from e*
lis receipts. For this, we cannot
lame them. Now what we want to tr
mapress on the merchants and other s'
usiness enterp~rises in Summnerton is
implJly this, that if they want a share

some steel bridge -over the Catawba
River, which he is satisfied will be
duplicated, if not surpassed, by the
steel bridge which must inevitably
be built over the Santee River, in
the vicinity of St. Paul, Clarendon
County. Mr. Cantey states that after
visiting a community like Rock Hill,
where civilization has reached a high
status, one becomes crest-fallen upon
coming in contact with an old rusty'
railroad like the Northwestern, and
that it is simply up to the people of,
Summerton to put themselves in
speedy and direct contact with points
where civilization prevails, by com
nencing without further delay, to'
build a steel bridge across the Santee I
River for the use of automobile tour
ists. Mr. Cantey further states that
the Cherry farm at Rock Hill, with
its immense acreage of alfalfa and a
beautiful red soil, is alone worth a
trip to Pock Hill.
