The way the Manning cemetery is being
neglected is a disgrace to a civilized coim
munity. Instead of it receiving that tender
care a sacred spot should, it has become a
cow pasture for the public to graze their
cows upon. We have on several occasions
called the attention of those interested to
this sad condition, but all we have Lereto
fore said has f dlen upon indiiferent ears.
If those who have mothers, fathers, sisters,
brothers and children buried in the eeie
tery are content to leave their grave s to be
trampled upon by cows there will be noth
ing for as to do but to sub~mit and share
in the blame.

When young people get so loving as to
sit on a railroad track to hug and kiss they
should watch in opposite directions to see
that they are not being seen, even at the
risk of getting blind. A couple last Satur
day afternoon not far from Manning were
observed er joying each other's caresses and
embraces,kisses and sweet sayngs and each
of them wt re totally oblivious that a whole
world surrounded them. They forgot that
the railroad track beneath them anct tele
graph wires above them are used as a means
of communication and every time they em
braced each other and osculated, the oscu
lation recorded itself upon the wires and
communicated the blissful happening
straightway to THE TDIEs office. We feel
very kindly towards the lovesick couple
and sympathize with them in their desire
to keep their little affairs private, it is for
this reason we would advise them to keep
off the track whether the engine blows or
not. It is said that walls have ears, but if
they have, they are deaf and dumb and
young friends, if you will indulge in the
pleasure of osculation, let it be from be
neath the wires.
A stranger coming into Manning cannot
but be impressed with the progressive
movement now on foot. Just think of it
Four new brick stores now in course of
erection, two of which are nearly completed
and the other two will be ready for occu
pancy by the middle of August at the
latest. All four of these stores are engaged
and as soon as they are ready, will be
occupied by a set of young live merchants
who realize that they must compete with
old merchants who have a line of custom
ers. If they are up-to-date business men
they will not be content to divide the trade
already coming here, but will create
such a stir in the purchasing world as to
attract the attention of trade now going to
other towns. We are glad to see this and
we believe before the fall season is over the
town of Manning will be participating in
a trade such as she has never witnessed be
fore. The old saying 'othe more the mer
rier" is a true one, and --competition is the
life of trade" is such an acknowledged
maxim, that wherever opposition presents
itself, liva business men seem to sniff it in
the gale and prepare for the fray in ad
vance. Just watch the cash trade of M1an
ning this fall.

It is alwvay s a pleasure to i-cad of our

Rev. W. E. Dozier, pastor of the Presbv

The scene impressed itself upon those
that witnessed it, as one long to be re
embered, as manly groom and beautiful
bride plighted their vows to God, and
each other, for wveal and for woe.
The groom is a popular railroad man of
tis place, but formerly of Charleston, S.

attortneys for great corporations 1I
Newv York go to 12hi for advice. and
the givillg of this advice is one source
of his ample annual revenues. The
judge is a muost delightful raeonteur,
as all adiit who have listened to himl
when the eigars and cordials are put
on the table at the Waldorf or at
Delmonico's. Judge Siuonton has
an account at a New York financial
institution, or le did until recently.
He has frequently been urged to re
tire from the bench adl become
alacsel for a corporatn Y in this city,
but lie has persistently declined
these invitations. Hie and John ('.
Carlisle are good friends.
The only embarassment connected
with the Judge's career has mani
fested itself during the past few
years, but it occasions a good deal of
talk in New York's financial circles,
where the matter is of importance.
This is the number of reversais of his
decisions which Judge Simonton has
had to endure, or, to speak more ac
curately, the reversals of his funda
mental rulings in great questions of
consit.tional law. The fact that a
judge's decisions are over ruled by
the higher courts is not significant.
But, when the fundamental theory
upon which he bases a ruling is pro
nounced unsound on appeal, the con
sequences are apt to be serious.
Cases, which in themselves are of
little importance are of vital interest
because they involve principles
affeting numerous pending suits.
Now, it has aroused comment during
the past few years that Judge Simon
Tol naigaizes by a sinigular fatality
to get on the wrong side of the Su
prele Court in his expositions of the
constitutIon. He is also singularly
il:felicitious in his quotation of pre
edeuts, and somewhat original in

onton account for these things in
various ways. It hiappenis that the
railroads within his jurisdiction hav-e
been tangled iinto most confusing
disorder through re-organizations
and combinations and bonded debts.
Were railroaas nothing but railroads
pure and simple. Judge Simonton
wculd not have so mnuch to do. But
railroads, at least in this country, are
finanial instituitionis, and1( the mnost
iiotant of their functions is by no0
mueans translOrtationi. The Iinai'eial
aspxet of railroading, its bonds and
steeks and dividends and gzeneral
mortgage creditors and so on. are
things concerninig which J3udge Sim
onton is thoroughly posted and can
lav down the law with niarv-ellous
eactness. But railroads arc required
to carry pa5sengers and freight, and
it is in the branch of the law~ relat
ing to this mal:tter that the judge is
not at home. To this effect ruius the
exlaiation of those whlo attemp~t to

what Jud'ge Simnonton's decision
would be, but tihe friends of tile
Judge cannot be exp)ected to credit
this, even thcugh the attorney of tile
whiskey ring and Judge Simuontoui
are personial friends. The fact is that
a judge, no matter how upright, is
forced to be riore or les-~s on intimnate
terms with Iuembers of the bar, and
it is due to Judge Simionton to sav
that he has frequently "-called
down" the attorney of solue v'ast cor
poration who has vecntured to assume
swaggermng airs in his court. Sena
tor Tilhunan. who has been a judge
himself, says that in the Dispensary
law ruling, "Judge Simonton re
verses himself, for lie once upheld tihe
Wilson law, which prevented this
'erv thing. His decision to-day
neutralizes t'1e law passed in 1@0U by
Congress, after thie original package

before many y'ears thle goverment of
'country will be in a condition of
eadlock owing to the passing of

forcement by another, and their nul
