The K. of P. Working Team at Summer
ton.
The team from Game Cock Lodge,
K. of P.,-that went to Summerton
Thursday to instruct the infant lodge
of the State in rank/work, was most
favorably impressed with the place
and^the people. The visiting brothers
were accorded a hospitable reception,
and,:were shown every possible cour?
tesy and attention.
The members of the new lodge were
instructed in the secret work of all
the ranks ; their eagerness to learn
and the alacrity with which they
remembered their instructions, was
exceedingly gratifying to the visiting
Knights.

prosperous, flourishing town with a
number of brick stores and handsome
residences. Property is enhancing in
value every day, and if it continues to
make such rapid strides during the
next ten years. South Carolina will be

It is boped that by means of the
Pythian Lodge, Summerton ind Sum?
ter will be bound 'together by stronger
ties of friendship.

A TERRIBLE ACCIDENT.
Little Girl Five Years Old Crushed to
Death by a Falling Tree.
In the Zoar neighborhood, about five
miles from Sumter, a sad and horrible
accident occurred Wednesday after
nooi
Mrb W. H. Brown was engaged in
cutt*"; down a small tree; her little
dauguter, about 5 years of age, was
playing in tbe near vicinity, and the
tree falling unexpectedly pinioned her
tender body to the ground. Medical
aid was summoned at once, and on ex?
amination, the child was found to be
dangerously hurt, and suffering from
severe internal injuries. The little
girl lived until about 9 o'clock
Wednesday night, at which time the
Angle of Death visited her, and her
grief stricken parents are left desolate.
They have the heartfelt sympathy
not only of their friends and neigh?
bors but of all who have heard of
their bereavement.
Manning News Notes.
Mr. I. C. Strauss of the Sumter
Bar spent Monday in Manning on pro?
fessional business.
. The railroad depot at this place was
entered last night, and burglars suc?
ceeded in damaging the safe and steal?
ing 40 cents in pennies.
There is in contemplation the build?
ing of an electric railroad from
Wright's Bluff to ISt. Paul, through
Summerton to Manning. The projec?
tors of this scheme believe such a road
will add greatly to the development of
the section through which it will go,
and afford freight competition with
the Coast Line.

! COMMERCIAL CLUB FOR SUMTER.
A Business Organization of Business Men
for the Good of Sumter.
Mr. J. C. Huger aud Dr. W. L. Mc
Cutchen called on a number of busi?
ness men Wednesday afternoon for
the purpose of enlisting their interest
and securing their cooperation in the
oranization of the Commercial Club
of Sumter. ^awf'^
The proposed Club is to be primarily
a business organization, whose object
shall be the promotion of the commer?
cial and industrial development of
this city; but it is expected to main?
tain a well appointed and comfortable
club house, where ifs members may
meet for business or social purposes
and where visitors may be entertain?
ed.
The membership at the outset will
be limited to one hundred, probably,
although that is a point for discussion
and settlement when the club comes
to be formally organized.
Messrs. Huger and McCutcben
found that the proposition was receiv?
ed with general favor, and within a
few hours they secured more than half
the proposed one hundred members.
Practically all of those called on ex?
pressed their heart? approval of the
plan to organize the business men and
bring them together to work for
Sumter. They realize that organized
effort is required to secure the best
results for the city and to carry it for?
ward m the march of progress, and
they were prompt to give their appro?
val to a movement that promises to
attain the desired results.
j it is a part of the plan of employ a
competent man as secretary of the club
? who will give his entire time to work?
ing for the city, answering all in
! quiries from prospective investors and
devising ways and means to induce
! industrial enterprises to locate here.
It may be accepted as a fact that the
Commercial Club will be established
in tbe near future, for it bas met with
too hearty a reception from the most
substantial and public spirited citi?
zens for it to fail.
When you want a pleasant hxative take

How to Keep Cotton.
As there will likely be a quantity of
cotton held over until the Spring, I
would suggest again that if the same
is stored out of doors that the cotton
be placed on bricks, say place down
on the ground four to six bricks and
upon these carefully lay the bale
length ways. The altitude of the
brick would giv? sufficient space for
the rain to pass through and also to
admit the sunshine. The bricks not
holding moisture leave no rotted sur?
face where they touch theflbales which
the present system of skids invariably
rots the cotton just where the wood
touches tlie bale.
