THE ALLIANCE IN CLARENDON.
We have for some time been ol
serving with interest the pusitio
taken by some Alliances in the Stat
in passing resolutions. The Allianc
is ' powerful organization, with th
governing principle that the will <
the majority must rule. An Allianc
resolution is as binding as the obligi
tion, and every good and true membi
of an Alliance should and must grac(
fully submit to the will of the majo
ity. The members of an Allianc
then should use great care aid cautio
in adopting a resolution which a r(
spectable minority opposes. Ther
should always be some real and ne<
emary cause for the enactment of an
law that in any way infringes upo:
the rights and privileges of anothe
member, and in politics and religio:
especially should there be no conflic
within the sacred walls of an Alliane

BUILD UP THE TOWN.
The town of Manning has all thE
natural facilities for developing into
-ive town that oeuld wish, and i
chronie eroakers declare it now is, il
will be the result simply of the selfisi
aa- srdidness of our hardshell businesi
'men. Some time back an effort war
made to organize a building and loaj
assooiation, an institution whose chie
obect is to develop the building in
i.tereata of the town and county. Whal
anucces did it meet? Not a large mer
ebcant, or a moneyed man of the towz
-with possibly one or two exceptions

and those one or two who did help
b elped very little. The secret of th<
is that every man wants t<
Stake care of himself, and wants thi
-devil to take the others.
We need a town hall with a marke
~and guard house and two largE
stores, and the town councilisin favoa
of building it, but some few in thE
town are opposed to it, and the prob
ability is the town hall will not bE

There are no stores in town for an'

A C0PAIGN DODGE.

I we confess, as we have said editokally
t a number of times, that we cannot see
a any extraordinary prerequisites he hai

I are perfectly willing to trust the helm
of State to Tillman. We also ac
knowledge that we cannot understand
the immense amount of opposition to
Tillman. He has a fine record as an
uncompromising Democrat. No hint
of corruption has been cast against
him. He has not charged the State
with corruption, but simply with ex
travagance' and that the farming in
terests of the State have not received
the proper attention due them.
His suggestion by the March Con
vention, while out of the regular red
tape line of procedure, is by no means
an act worthy of such censure and
condemnation. The farmers of the
State, or at least a large part of them,
favor him, and as this is the first time
since the days of reconstruction that
a candidate has appeared avowedly as
a farmers' candidate, and as he is a
man fully competent to fill the duties
of the office, we think it would sim
ply be an act of graceful courtesy for
all classes and cliques quietly to ac
quiesce in Tillman's favor. We see no
sin in the farmers wanting Tillman,
and we say let them have him, and
we believe they will get him!
-But about the negroes' registering
having any effect on Tillman's nomi
nation. ~~ftis, as every Desmoemat
knows, a rule of the Democratic par
ty that no negro can vote in a Demo
cratic primary, unless it is known that
he voted the regular Democratic tick
et at the preceding general election,
and whoever would strive to produce
a contrary opinion is either unpardon
ably ignorant or desirous of perpe
trating a gross misrepresentation.
THAT LEXINGTON LYTNCHING.
The Lexington lynching affair is
still involved in mystery. Three of
'the lynchers are in jail, charged with
murder, and the others, it is claimed,
will put in their appearance at the
Inext term of court to stand their tri
aL This trial will of course be farci
cal. Perjury seems to be the order
of the day in Lexington, and the
prisoners will easily find a jury to
pronounce them not guilty, even
though they acknowledge the deed in
open court. These Lexington people
say and swear that the affidavits and
letters on which the reprieve of the
Inegro was based are all forgeries. We
confess that since there has been so
much false swearing, perjury, lying,
or whatever term one wishes to use,
that we do not know what to believe.
We do know there was no excuse for
the lynching. One of the best and
ablest jurists in the State, Judge Wal
lace, than whom there isno truer South
Carolinian with all that that term car
ries, had, after investigating the let
ters and affidavits declaring that the
negro was not guilty of the crime for
which he was to die, advised the Gov
enor to respite the negro a few days
till the affair could be legally exam
ined into. He could not have done
otherwise, and his and the Governor's
action in reprieving the negro under
these circumstances is approved by
every thinking man.
Miss Cannon and her friendsdeclare
that all the affidavits and letters are
Iforgeries. Miss Cannon makes affi
davit that she never wrote any letter
to her mother, saying the crime had
not been committed on her; her
brother likewise makes affidavit that
he never signed any affdavit saying
that his sister had told him she had
not been raped; and the notary pub
lic before whom the affidavit was pur
ported to have been made, makes an
affdavit that young Cannon did not
made any affidavit before him; etc.
Matters are certainly in a mixed mess
and something is rotten in Denmark.
Had these Lexington people wait

meets in June, all things would have

Talks Witi Clarendon Farmers.
Mr. Winfield Holladay was at the court
house Saturday. He says that the crops about
Panola are looking well, and the farm
ers are hard at work. The MArsaYG Tas
is very popular, and Tillman is the war cry.
Mr. J. H. Horton, of Davis, was in town
yesterday, and said to us: "Farmers are
hard at work, with good prospects for a fine
crop. We find the railroad a great conve
nience, and Mr. Wilson, the president, is
very accommodating to our people. Politics
is quiet in my neighborhood, but the major.
ity of the people are for Tillman. Have
heard of no candidates yet for any of the
county offices." -
Mr. J. E. Richbonrg, of Foreston, was in
town yesterday. He says that the political
atmosphere is very much inflated with Till
mania, and that with the exception of a few
persons his neighborhood is for Tillman.
Mr. R. R. Billups, one of the most eon
servative farmers of Brunson's Cross Roads,
was in town this morning, and says thatthe
crops in his section are looking fine. The
people are chock full of Tillman enthusi
asm, and on the 26th day of July every man
that can manage to proenre a vehicle (and
those that cannot will walk) will be in Man
ning to give Ben Tillman a rousing wel
come. He further says that Wade Hampton
is now in the zenith of his glory, but if he
allows the ring-masters to induce him to run
for governor his political doom is fixed.
Mr. W. T. Sprott, of Jordan, a prosper
ous farmer, was in town Saturday, and says
that the farmers in his section are doing fine
work, their crops are small but good stands.
The political situation is entirely in favor
of Tillman, and only occasionally can be
heard the weak voice of an Anti-Tillmanite.
Mr. W. H. H. Hobbs, chairman of the
Board of County Commissioners, was in
town to-day. He says politics is lively in
Salem, and that he doubts if there are twen
ty men in salem opposed to Tillman. He
thinks Salem will furnish several candidates,
although none are yet announced. The
crops are in fine condition in Salem.
The News and Courier reports Dr. W. H.
Reynolds, of Packsville, as saying: "My
impression is that the Alliance in our coun
ty is being used by its leaders for the pur
pose of aiding the candidacy of Mr. Tillman.
They all recognize that this is not the legit
imate aim of the Alliance. The Alliance is
however very much divided in its support
of the March Convention 'suggestion.' Mr.
Tillman has a strong and influential worker
in one of our county Representatives. The
leaders of the old Democracy are not yet as
heartily at work as the Tillmanites. The
sentiment in favor of Tillman has, I think,
reached its height in our county, and is
rather on the decrease."

CARE OF OmcKENs.-Nearly all of
the diseases to whi:-h fowls are sub
ject may be traced to overfeeding. A
fowl that is constantly stuffed soon
becomes disordered and deficient in
digestion, thus wasting the excess of
food. Exercise is the best antidote
for overfed birds. Reduce the allow
ance and compel them to work. In
dustry means a production of eggs,
and the fowls will also keep healthy
by having something to do. How of
ten it happens that thirteen eggs are
placed under a hen, she hatches per
haps ten, and raises five. The num
ber in a brood raised to a marketable
age seldom equals one-half of all that
hatch. The hen can cover the chicks
when they are very small, but, as they
grow, a few must take their chances
on the outside. The result is that on
some cold night they perish, or be
come so thoroughly chilled as to grad
ually droop and die. A young chick
just out of the shell is almost entirely
unprotected, its down being of little
service, and the proper temperature
for it the first forty-eight hours is at
least ninety degrees, and even one
hundred degrees is not too warm. If
the hen is not kept in a warm place
she cannot impart this warmth, as
there are cold currents along the
ground. If there are one or two
chicks stronger than the others they
will induce the hen to follow them,
the result being that the weaker ones
suffer because the mother will not
hover for them. No amount of food
can compensate for this lack of
warmth, and if the chicks do not per-.
ish they become stunted. There is
no necessity for this loss of chicks in
a brood. In the first place, ten eggs
are enough for a hen to cover in cold
weather, and in the next, eight chicks
make a sufficiently large brood for her
to manage. More chicks can be raised
from a small brood than from a large
one, and to insure success in cold
weather the hen and brood must be
well protected, as well as confined to
a small space until the chicks are
feathered. A death-trap to the chicks
is the water fountain. Dampness is
fatal to young chicks, and they should
never be allowed to more than get
their beaks in the water. Paddling
through a saucer, or turning over a
cup of water, thus wetting the run, is
dangerous. They should be fed ev
ery two hours, after they have been a
day out of the shell, on bread crumbs
and milk, with granulated oatmeal
kept constantly before them. In a
short time they will eat screenings
and cracked corn, and then wheat. As
soon as they begin to eat wheat the
greater difficulty will be over, as then
a mess of soft food twice a day will
be sufficient. Even until chicks are
two months old they require being

plate bore the inscription, 'Samuel Brushel,
aged 37.' Brushel was a poor, shiftless man,
and was fatally injured some weeks ago by
a fall from a tree. He was proud of his In

of the Mohegan tribe here were half-breeds.
Not one of his tribe attended the funeral.

Stackhiouse Nomninated for Congrec'o.
The Sumter Adremee nominates Gen. E.
'. Sta'ckhouse, of Marion, for Governor.
Good nomination, brother, but you have
waited too long. Farmer Ben Tfillmnan, of
Edgeflild, is the man the farmers want now,
-en. Stackhouse is wanted elsewhere, and
if you'll pronase to keep qui.:t, we'll tell
ou where they propose to place him-in
Congress. The fact is patent, brother, that
the farmers are paying very little attention
to newspaper nominations. Brother, the
truth is this: Farmer Tillman is the head
md front of the farmiers' tuov'ement, and the
farmers propose to treat him a little better
than the Demuocratii' party didl Gen. Gary in
1876, by making himi Governor. That's it,
brother, so get ready to "fidl in."- Jarlhoro

"I have been troubled with dyspepsia. I had
but little appetite, and what I did eat distressed
me,or did me little good. In an hour after eating
I would experience a faintness or tired, sn-gone
feeling, as though I had not eaten anything.
Hood's Sar'aparilla did me an immense amount
of good. It gave me an appetite, and my food
relished and satisfied the craving I bad previously
experienced. It relieved me of that taint, tired,
