Ciarendon out of Debt.
Clarendon county is now virtually out of
debt, and we hope and believe that the
small balance yet due will be paid in full
before the next session of the Legislature.
We have had a "back indebtedness" the
past twenty-five years, and it will indeed
be refreshing the next year to know that we
shall have only the current exp. nses to pay.
The tax levy tis year is lower than it has
been since the war, and there is no reason
whatever why it should not bz still less for
This is the k'nd of reform we like to
write about, and the kind the people prefer
to hear of. How was it brought aboa:
Simply by economical administration. The
h--or lies w'ith the representatives in the
legislature, the county conii.-ssioncrs, and
the auditor. To those, however, who have
been watching closcly the administration of
county afhirs, it has appeared conspic
nously evident that Audaitor Bradhan has
been indefatigable in his efforts to get the
property of the county ralsed to its approx
iately true valuation, to get the taxes reduc
ed, and to get the county out of debt. He
has been auditor four years, and to him be
longs the chief honor for the present state

-Fellow Teachers:- Ours is a noble profes-.
sn.. Lord Bacon says we owe a debt to
ear -profession. What is then our princi
Spaldnty in relation to our calling? To Ia
~ or diligently to improve ourselves. Yes,
iit is our duty. We not only can, but
- ave the time and must cultivate ourselv-es.
We should be willing to impart as well as
receive good. "Everybody is wiser than
nybody," and we should bring our attasin
,-ments into the common stock and difuse
as far as able the light we possess.- We
amust help and encourage one another.
SThis can be done best by social iotc-rcourse';
by having meetings for mtual impl)rotCenOt,
~>thus giving us an op porLtunt to exchang~e
thoughts on the dialieuties~ we mect with
and the best methods of-u rm"o"tto them.
' You cannot plead as an exense for your
Zmistak-es, 'I did it ign.orantl.' You are
-illing a place where q.y.ac' is s a su
an-~d where indifferoce to th V1 bein: of~
-thers is equivalernt to wifu homi-cid -. It
is a duty in'.olved by- your position in life
- to improve yourse-lf. Th!is now can be-t
-anid only be accomplihed by- ouir Teac-hers'
Association, which is pci-cly-'- elpted to
the difbision of the best metiods of instruic
tion. We gain encouragement an d strength
by being thus brought in con:act with one
another. Toilitng on alone in your isolated
district, surrounded byv obstacles, discour
aged, weighted down with care and respon
sibility, almost ready to fairnt in your cause,
if you attend a m eting you will feel that a1
noble brotherhoood of kindred spirits are1
laboring under the same trials, and will
:gather new strength from the sympathy of
-our friends. You will be improved intel
eculyand morally by this n-i etintg, and
encouraed to toil on in faithfulness and in
-hope. Is not this enough to str you up
. and make you see the necessity of our in
-stitute for mutual improvement ? Then at
Itend and give us the benenit of your light.
-We are the most intelligert class in the
world, and to be thus neglectful of our own
improvement-God forbid. Don't say,
"yes, it is a good thing; I believe in it,"
-but put your shoulder to the wheel. Come
a~ nd either disperse some of your hard at
tained knowledge or gather some from the
light diffused by others. At the mneeting of
the county school commissioners an'1 'em
-iners in Columbia, the 3rd of spril, it was
Sresolved, that it w.s the sen'.e of that body~
that there s ould be a Teach rs' Institute in
-every county in the State. And for the
State Board 'of Exaniners to t-'' such .steps
a s they deemed advisable for the'. in~ti

change in the rules in regard to grant ng
taachers' certinicates. The new fenn of cer

valuable factor in a teacher's usefuln.-s.
A credit of 10 points is allowed for each

STRANGE BUT TRUE.
Col. I. W. Avery's Remarkable Statement.
This gentleman was treated for years by
eminent specialists, and the Brown-Sequard
remedy was tried. He states he had spent
upwards of seven thousand dollars with the
most eminent physicians, and otherwise,
but without the least benefit. He bade his
:>ld comrades in arms an affectionate fare
well more than a year ago, and yet, here is
what he writes under a fresh date. Could
anything be more wonderful?
GxmarL ~:-I was in a very bad fix. I
was bedridden. Kidneys disordered, di
gestion torpid. arm helpless with rheuma
tism and blood poison (the effect of a wound
rceived during the war) and full of that
oious disease catarih. The doctors said I
woull not livc and quit giving me medicine,
as it did no good. I have since used noth
irng but Grernietuer. Mv lidneys are well,
uv dijes4ion -:ood, lily palsie'd arm is well,
y&i- caLarrh removed, and my general health
is excellent. I W. AVERY.
Colonel Avery was for several years editor
of the Atlanta Constitution, and his vigor
ous and versatile editorials gave that sheet a
vivacity which won for him an enduring
reputation as a first-classs journalist. For
many years he was Ex-Governor and Sena
tor Colquitt's secretary, later, h_ charge of
the U. S. treasury department, and is to-day
a proud, living monument t- the virtues of
that great healing and life-giving elixir, Dr.
King's Royal Germetuer.
Do not class it wiih other proprietary
emedies. It is so far beyond all of' them in
its beautiful proportions and accurate analy
sis of all that cons'itutes a real germ destroyer
nd a health giving compound, that all other
so-alled remedies for the diseases which it
vill cure must take a back scat to give 'the
highway to this great and wonderful reme
y for human health and happiness.

The Worst Cough
Is relieved by the use of Ayer's Cherry rec
toral. But don't delay till the bronchial
tubes are inflamed and the lungs congested.
Prompt use insures rapid cure. L. D.
Bixley, of Bartonville, Vt., writes: "Four
years ago I took a severe cold, which was
followed by a terrible cough. I was con
2ned to my bed about four moaths. My
physician finally said I was in Consumption,
and that he could not help me. One of my
neighbors advised ime to try Ayer's Cherry
Pectoral. I did so, and wa well before I
had finished taking the first bottle. Ever
since then my health has been good."

Why is it that the tendency of all the great commercial establishments of the country si to VARIETY? Is it not because
experience has proven the wisdom of the plan? The advantages of both buyer and seller are plain. To the merchant, be
cause, whatever the condition of trade, having a varied and extensive stock, he is able to do some business. When a salesman
is not selling a suit of clothes or a pair of shoes, he can be selling a hat, a dress pattern, or some other article. To the customer,
whose time is often limited, because he can find what he wants at one place, without having to look the town over for it. And
because the variety and extent of the stock enables the merchant to
SELL AT SHORTER PROFITS
than if he dealt in one line exclusively. The salesmen who have charge of the separate departments of our store, and who are
familiar with the wants of the trade, have assisted in the selection of each line, and we are confident that we can show you a
larger, more varied, and better selected stock of goods than has ever been displayed in the town of Manning. Our

will be complete in every line. We have given unusual care to the selection of this stock, and we can assure our lady friends
that it will be to their interest to.examine our stock before purchasing. We have Cashmeres, Ginghams, Satines, Batiste, Chal

elegant line of trimmed and untrimmed Ladies' Hts, which are of the very latest styles. Embroideries, Edgings, Flouncings,

spring heel children's shoes. Our success with
CLOTHING .AND G-ENTS' FURNISHING GOODS
the past season has encouraged us to give special attention to this line. Having had many years of experience in the clothing
business, we feel sure our efforts to please our customers will me et with success. All we ask is an examination of our stock be
fore purchasing, and if we do not convince you of the justice of our claims, we will think it no hardship if you do not trade with
us. Remember our motto ever has been, is now, and ever shall be, "Never to be undersold."
