Alderman's Grand Opening
(Continued from Page 1)
Manning has without a doubt, witnessed the biggest
store opening the State, or probably the South, has ever
had. The entrances leading in to this magnificient build
ing were thronged with people constantly, from early in
the morning until the late hours in the night. Some amaz
ed with astonishment, others commenting to the very
Before entering the building we must not over look
the fact, that Mr. M. W. Oshields is "on the job" when it
conmes to decorating a window. He displayed artistically,
a window that drew the eyes of the public, and gave them
befor e entering the building, an idea of the magnificence
of the store inside. Mr. Oshields is from Spartanburg,
and has charge of the decorating and advertising end and
he has shown already, a skillful ability in this line of work
that is recognized by the peop~le.
After entering the building from the right entrance,
here we find Mr. J. W. Ward of Newberry, in charge of
~~e Dry Goods department, that is, Dress Goods, White
Goods and Notions, Mr. Ward is very pleasant in attitude
Pand business-like in ability. While he sold a lot of mer
chandise that day he was constantly busy in arranging
his articles and preparing for business.
In approaching Mr. Ward for an interview in regard
to the first day opening he said, "This store and its open
ing'would be a credit to some large city and 1 believe the
people as a whole appreciate this opportunity. Now as to
the future, I think it is great."
Next we come into the Shoe Department. Mr. S. L.
McTeer of Jacksonville, Fla. has charge of this depart
ment and a clevereir fellow cannot be found than Mr. Mc
Teer and you can rest assured that he will "hold down"
his end of the store.
Mr. McTeer says, "Jacksonville has got some big
stores down there but nothing equal this, this is some nice
store and I am right here to fit the foot." At the time the
reporter was interviewing Mr. McTeer, the band started
laying "Ja-da" therefore we both fell for the music and
,got all about shoes.
.' The next thing we knew, we ran into Mr. W. R. Plow
den in his Hardware department and this is some nice
department. Everything imaginable in hardware is ar
ranged and displayed before the p)ublic. The fixtures are
of the latest and up-to-date design and wer~e purchased
from The J. D. Warren Fixture Company, Chicago, Ill.
Apparantly, the hardware department is the largest
dej twent down stairs for in addition to the hardware
anto mobile accessory department is connected with it.
Now we feel sure when Mr. Plowden gets Mr'. Far
mer to looking over his artistically arranged department
and explaining to him the John Deere Agricultural Im

Right near the hardware department is a large nice
ly furnished office with telephones, typewriters and adding
machines. This office actually looks like it might be the
president's office of some big Steele Corporation. Mr.
Chas. L. Chapman has got things going in this office. Now
this is not "Charlie Chaplin" the famous moving picture
comedian, but he is as much of a Star actor in his duties
as Charlie Chaplin is on the screen.
This department will no doubt, be busy at all times:
for a lot of business will be transacted through this office.
