to the dinner. The table groaned
beneath, its load before dinner a.id
the people groaned after dinner.
We amused ourselves by playig
all kind of games and enjoying the
beautiful scenes of nature, even the
sight of a couple snakes was exciting
fun for a while.
Later in the afternoon we all climbed
to the top of the mountain and
viewed the surrounding country.
We all regretted to see the day
come to a close and later to hear the
shrill whistle of the train that was
to carry us hack to Newberry.
The class is honing to have an

The Manning politicians are busy
now giving out "Dibble's figures." <
a farnipr frnm Olewberrv has been
sent down to Columbia to give out
some Manning dope, and he informs .
us through the columns of The :Re- }
cord that Cooper will get fifteen (
thousand votes in the first race this
It is also stated that Governor
Manning has been up to Jones to a j
picnic, and that tne people in inai i.
section do not know what Cooper is
running for, and that he "will get
no votes in that section." Manning
has also carried a cotton mill or two
in Laurens, and is about to carry 1
the Ware 'Shoals mill. In fact, as i
we stated last week, he wii continue ]
to carry the State several times a :
day, until election day, -when it "will t
be found that he ran himself to death c
before, the race really began.
SBut all this talk is intended to foo!

thinking that Cooper is not in the
race, and that the issue is between
Manning and Blease. The people
must not be deceived by such exaggerated
statements. Cooper will
poll more than fifteen thousand votes
in Greenville, Oconee, Pickens, An- (
derson, Abbeville, Greenwood, ajid
Laurens counties. If any farmer In
Newberry wants to bet a bird'6 nest
against a year's subscription to a !
paper which will give him some light, # ,
on whether we are right or not, the
opportunity is now fcis.
Manning will be short about thirtyfive
thousand votes of the estimate
of his followers and pro<bably more.
Cooper will lead in the first race tor
governor, and the second race will i
be between Cooper and Manning. A
This is our prediction. Post it up 1
on the wall alongside the Manning
figures and see who is nearer the re
suit when it is pronounced by the
people who vote, and not by the politicians
