The people or Sumter generally are
greatly gratified at tlie evidences of
growing Blrength in Hon.. Richard I,
Manning's candidacy for governor.
This is evidenced in many ways; by
the many recent communication? to
the different papers of the State, and
by the attacks being made on him at
the campaign meetingB by both the
Bleaae and the anti-Blease candi
dates, for a weak candidate is never
attacked by his competitors. Another
Bure indication of his strength is the
many letters being received at Mr.
Manning's oilice every day from all
different parts of the State, telling
him of his strong stand in the writ
er's community. An Item reporter
was given the opportunity of looking
over a batch of mail and made r r?w
excerpts from lettars.
From Charleston, a Manning hupj
"Mr. Manning 1? gaining strength
daily. I am doing nil I can for him."
Another from Charleston: "We arc
much encouraged here over the Man
ning outlook." From Charleston als
"I am glad'to Bay that things for Mr.
Manning are looking pretty good down
here." And ?tili yet from Charleston
comes this: "From all indications
you are going to fare well here Au
gust 25. told me that you would
lead in Charleston." The party named
there is a most astute politician and
iu on the other side in Charleston
An Alken man writes: "I have, foi
f-.ome time, been reading your speeches
und I have'come to the conclusion
you are the man more suited for the
governor's chair; 1 promise to do my
best for you." 'And from Fairfield
comes these optimistic messages, "I
believe he is growing in this county,
and Iii?, strongest opponent is losing."'
"I find Manning and * * are way
ahead around here!" I feel suro that
you are gaining ground m our coun
ty; I geel good in your behalf to
Newherry is in this too. These nr?_
extracts, from a couple of letters:
"Congratulate you on your bright
prospects and commend the stand ou
publie questions you are generally db
r.uming." "As- things stand how, Mr.
Manning will poll the largest vote of
any of tho anti-Blease candidates, dnu
may; head'tue ticket over all, both
Blease and'-anti-Blease in this coun
ty." From Dorchester comes tho
word, "I wish to assure you of my
support, and that at this poll you can
count on 85 per cent, perhapa more."
And another fror?.' Dorchester: "I
wish to report for this section that
you will poll a good vote."
A Chester man wrote: "You are
gaining ground every day in my
county. A lot of men have
changed recently and are talking
Manning. I. jbelieve you will head tne
ticket - for governor in my -county."
From an Orangeburg town' is written,
"You are gaining votes every day and
the prospects are, you will not only
carry this box but Barnwell, Bamberg
and Hampton counties."
Up in the corner of the State, from
Pickene county is written: "I am
sure Mr. Manning is growing stronger
every day." From Iva, in thickly set
tled Anderson county, he has heara,
"I am pleased to be able to inform
you that things around here are la
deed favorable to your Interest."
Wlilln from thn Hty of Andernan Ik
written: "1 am confident that you are
as Btrong as, if not a little stronger,
than any one in this section." From
a mill town, in Qrcenville county,- it*.
heard: "I have got a great -many
promised to vote for Mr. Manning in
this section, i am certainly not leav
ing any stones unturned tor.Mr. Man
ning. I.have a lot of * men te vote
for Mr. Manning. One , of our work
ers was a * supporter."
A travelling man writes;-"I have
been working the' Piedmont section'
for about three weeks, and. from ob
servation, believe you. are growing!
stronger every day; a great many
men I have talked to are *-* * men but
are. going to support you, bel levies
you are the strongest anti-man in the
race." Another traveling man writes.
"I have been over nearly every county
In the State In the past 30 days?you
are growing in favoi."
! The following letter froffi Charles
ion wbb from a gentleman who is ui?t
a politician but just a good. Solid,
evory day citizen who had -written
Mr. Manning, asking his stand- on
certain questions. This letter Is in
reply tO Mr. Manning's letter to him.
"I am very much gratified at your
frank reply to questions asked. -As a
result, you may'expect my support ln|
tie coming campaign. I-have shown.
JimuT ?st'er to sixteen others srm
thirteen have pledged their support
to you. Twn or the others hav'ng pre
viously pledged theuiBClyes to other
candidates. The other said he was not
ready to pledge himself but would
give you careful consideration. One
of the thirteen gentlemen pledging
himself to vote for you, tells me. this
afternoon7'that alx other voters living

Richard Lewis In a manly youngster
about I? years of age und lives near
CleniBou College. When the grain
festival was held this year he brought
a display to Anderson und according
to Funnan Smith,' the minute the an
nouncement of the winning oats had
been made, the lud hud rushed to Mr.
Smith and asked the price of Home of
the prize winning oats. Mr. Smith1
thought (hat the boy was nsk'ng for
hlB father and paid little attention to
him until he returned a few minutes
later and again made inquiry about
the winning oats. Mr. Smith thou
discovered that the boy was wanting
I the oats for himself and let him have
? liberal ?tapply. The following in &f?
extract from a letter written by the
boy to Mr. Smith:
"I received the oats in good condi
tion and like them fine. I want to
know If I may enter more than one i
variety in the grain festival next year i
as I want to fix for it now. I am go- j
ing to push someone pretty close for <
one of the prizes. If you have a llBt i
of the prizes or the varieties of grain
to be entered from thiB county will ap- 1
preclato your sending one to me. I 1
have gotten a Chatham grader and 1
hope to Increase the yield of grain by 1

Replying to the letter, Mr. Smith 1
wrote the lad as follows:
"Answering your favor of the 3rd. !
details for th9 next grain1 festival have
not yet been worked out but will be at, '
no distant date and I will then advise |

ter a bushel of each distinct variety
that they cared to. I have reasons to
believe that you will make some
body go and go strong to beat you. '
You will find that grade a splendid in. ,
vestment. Would suggest that you ,
grade everything that you bow. After ,
you have thoroughly graded your oats
