Bace for Governor
Sumter, April 18.?R. I. Manning
-will not be a candidate for governor

authoritative statement we called on

He replied that he had been asked
the same question wherever he had
been In the state; that he had received

his friends but that he had decided
not to entor the race. In answer to a
further question, he added that he was
not now prepared to discuss his future

of tho Episcopal church Thursday af
ternoon. About eighteen ladies com
pose this band of church workers, and
they enjoyed the privilege of hearing
a talk on missions which encouraged
them to make greater efforts for this
