The Republican 'arty in this State is made up atgely of colored men; there is only a sprinkling of white men in ;, and from this element the na ional party must look for sup port, therefore it is but natural or the President to recognize hse whom he must expect recoomition from in a nominating govn n On the principal Democratic one, "to the victors cans in this State have a right to expect substantial recognition from the head of the party. We can not see any occasion for sur prise at the president's action in appointing a respectable colored man to office, but when Grover Cleveland appointed a colored man to office in Washington it was an occasion for surprise be cause Cleveland was elected by Democrats, and had no favors to ask of Republicans, especially those of the South.

On the first evening of the year one of the fairest scenes ever witnessed in Manning was enacted: and not only the the participants but the spectators felt that the young men of Manning were due the highest praise for giving such a delightful entertainment as the "New Year's dance." The Institute Hall, with its splendid floor beautifully polished, its high ceiling upheld by massive col umns and brilliantly lighted was ia deed a scene of beauty. When we add to this the young ladies in their bright and dainty costumes and the gentleman attired in the regulation black with a good sprinkling of cadet uniforms, one cannot wonder that the evening of Tan uary 1st, 1903 was most heartily enjoy ed, and will probably be a lov.ely dream or memory througb the coming years to many of ie guests. The music was furnished by the Thomas orchestra of Columbia, and to either a lover of music or of dancing (or just a lover) who heard the strains. any praise which we might bestow would b.e considered insufficient. Several portions of our State was represented as will be seen by the following list of guests: Miss Janie Ingram with Mr. T. M. Wells. Miss Olivia Ingram with Mr. Clhaude Lesesne. Miss Nabel McFaddin with Mr. Ross McKenzie of Eastover. Miss Lillian Harvin with Mr. Charles Rigby. Miss Anderson of Georgetown with Mr. Joe Auld of Sumter. Miss Blanche DeLorme of Sumter with Mr. J. W. Rigby. Miss Theo. Gregg of Sumter and Dr. J. H. Hawkins. .iss Ethel Carson of Sumter and Mr. Derman Bradham. Misses Alice and Lizzie Hodge and Mr. LeGrand Geddings all of Pinewood. Miss Florence Flagg of Wilson and Mr. S. W. Barron of Mayesville. Miss Olger Reynolds and Mr. C. K. Curtis of Paxville. Miss Ada Bagnal and Mr. Leon. Weinberg. Miss Hatatie Harvin and Mr. Fred Auld of Eastover. Miss Hattie Bagnal and Mr. L. R. McIntosh. Miss Mayme Harvin and Mr. Frank Barron. Miss Lulie Harvin and Mr. E. C. Horton, Jr. Miss Virginia Galluchat and Mr. I. I. Appelt. Miss Erline White of Sumter and Cadet Leon Walker. Miss Anita White of Sumter and Ca det Everett Iseman. Miss Julia Clayton of Florence and Mr. Boyd Cole. Miss Marguerite Tindal of Felder and Mr. Lucius H. Harvin. Miss Mattie Harvin and Mr. George Tindal of Felder. Misses Kellum of Winnsboro and Till of Elloree with Mr. J. L. McLeod. Miss Hawkins of Charleston and Mr. William Barron. Miss Corinne Barfield and Mr. Wil son Dickson of Alcolu. With the following gentleman as stags: Manning and Henry Richardson of Fulton, Jim Richardson of Panola, Brooks Bultman, Harry Greene, Geo. and Julian Levy of Sumter,Cadet Richie of Laurens, J. E. and Hallie Scott of Wysacki, Charlie Harvin of Manning, Scott Burgess and Rose of Sardinia, and Dow Player of Workman. While some of the chaperons were missed the following who were present imparted quite an air of distinction: Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Dickson. Mr. and Mrs. Walter S. Harvin, Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Troublefield and Mr. and Mrs. S. M. Barfield. The dance was under the manage ment of Mr. J. W. Rigby ably assisted by committees. and the perfect success of the evening is sufficient testimony to his efficiency as a manager, and proves the wisdom of his election to such an honored position. During the evening refreshments were daintily and prettily served and formed quite a pleasant diversion in the pauses of the dance. We are in formed that tne committee on refresh ments are indebted to Misses Lillian Harvin and Janie Ingram for valuable assistance. Until the "wee, sma' hours" (never tell, but it was quite a few hours into the morning of Jan. 2nd.) did the music and dance hold sway and the Institute the scene of many brilliant and enter taining functtions, was filled with ani mated dancers and spectators. To say the evening was a "perfect success" is no exaggeration, and those who for any reason were deprived of the pleasure of attending, have most surely missed from their lives a very delightful eve ning and a wonderfully fair memory. All thanks be to our energetic and gal lant young men! We hope, with the ladies, that their success may be an in centive to other pleasures.SHT Heads Should Niever Ache. Never endure this trouble.

Mrs. Johanna Soderholmn of Fergus Falls, Minn., fell and dislocated her shoulder. She had a surgeon get it back in place as soon as possible, but it was quite sore and pained her very much. Her son mentioned that he had seen Chamberlain's Pain Balm advertised for sprains and soreness, and she asked him to buy her a bot tle of it, which he did. It quickly relieved her and enabled her to sleep whih she had not done for several days.
