If Manning doesn't do a big spring

fault of our enterprising merchants.
Rigby, Jenkinson, The Mutual, Till

close contact with the best and most
useful literature to aid them in their

A reception was given last Friday
evening at Summerton by Mr. and Mrs
Josenh Dola Rutledge,it being the occas
ion of the 20th anniversary of their mar
riage. It was an event to be rememberec:
being unique in this community-. Thg
whole house was artistically decoratec
with vines, ferns, flowers and brigh1
colored ca paper, and splendidly 11
luminated with wax candles. In one
corner of the parlor was a vine clad can
opy. over which burned twenty candles
in a row. Unde:. this hung a bell, be
neath which the bride and groom of 20
years stood receiving the congratula
tions of the hundreds of guests as they
came in. Looking upon this lovely
scene, it would not have been ditficult to
imagine that time had turned back in
its flight and it was the real wedding,
when the bride was as youthful as she
now looked. A sumptuous supper was
served. The array of costly presents.
consisting of all kinds of china, was a
subject of admira.tion, and will doubt

Every citizen of this town should se
cure a registration certificate before
the election which has been ordered
for March 10th to say whether or not this
town must surrender its present charter
and come under the general incorpora
tion laws. This is a very important
matter, one which means a great deal
to the owners of property in this town
and no man ought to sleep over his
rights. If you favor putting the town
under the general incorporation laws
get a registration certificate and vote
"Yes." If you are opposed get a regis
tration cirtificate and vote ""No." No
man has a legal right to a voice in this
election who has not qualified himself
with a registration certificate. There
seems to be an impression that no reg
istration certificate is necessary for the
charter election on the 10th inst., but
this is a mistake and it is our duty to
call attention to it. If the property
owning citizens of Manning want to
give council increased powers what
vould hinder an irresponsible element
from flocking to the polls on that day
to defeat the object or on the other
hand if the property ownig class are
opposed to give council increased pow
ers of taxation, what would hinder a
man with "an ax to grind" from taking
an irresponsible element from running
rough-shod over the citizens who have
the taxes to pay. We say that votes
cast by voters that have not registered
would invalidate the election, and
therefore it is absolutely necessary for
every vote cast in that election to be
that of a legal qualified voter.

second meeting Saturday, Feb. 27,

Do'Yon Want Strength?
If you want to increase your strength
you must add to and not take from the
physical. In other words,the food that
you eat must be digested, assimilated
and appropriated by the nerves, blood I
and tissues before being expelled from
the intestines. Kodol Dyspepsia Cure
adds to the physical. It gives strength
I to and builds up strength in the human I
system. It is pleasant to the taste and
palatable, and the only combination of
digestants that will digest the food and
enable the system to appropriate all of
its health and strength-giving qualities.

Best Cough Remedy fer Children.
When you buy a cough medicine for (
small children you want one in which
you can place implicit confidence. You
want one that not only relieves but
cures. You want one that is pleasant 1
to take. Chamberlain's Cough Reme
dv meets all of these conditions. There
is nothing so good for the coughs and a
colds incident to childhood. It is also C
a certain preventative and cure for
croup, and there is no danger whatev
er from whooping cough when it is
given. It has been used in many epi
demics of that diense with perfect suc
cess. For Sale by The R. B. Loryea

If you want to make the most money out of your
arden this year, it is time to begin thinking about =41
planting radishes, lettuce, corn, cucumbers. peas and =
onion sets. This is the month tomatoes and cabbages
should be planted in hot beds. Much of th9 success in
truck raising depends upon getting fresh seeds that are
true to name. This is certain when you get your seeds
here. Every seed was grown last year and under condi- I -
tions that insure the reliability of the variety. Among t
the more populary favorites for early planting in this -
section we would name the following:

We have a full line of these and all other varieties
ever grown in this section.
Problemiis Solved, Not Guessed At.
Illegible writing and perplexing problems often con
front the prescription clcrk. We have devoted much
time to the scientific study of prescriptions and many
years to practical experience.
We Are Seldom Puzzled,
but when we are we do not compound until we know
just what is required. The fact that our bnsiness con
stantly grows is evidence that our service pleases. You -
are safe in bringing prescriptions to RHAME'S.
LITTLE THINGS AT
Doing little things well is a characteristic of this
store. We recognize the fact that a transaction that
may seem small is often of great importance to you, and
our methods and service are such that we care for the
smallest sale as carefully as we do the larger ones.
There are hundreds of little articles in a drug stock for
which only occasional calls are made, but when they are
wanted it is to fill a need which nothing else can fill-it
is our constant effort to supply these trifles. This same
attention to detail is carried throughout our business.
In selecting goods, each article is purchased with regard
to quality. Each price is as low or lower than the same
quality is sold for elsewhere.

After nearly five months of toil and ups and downs and hav

our new and handsome stores at our old stand on the corner,
where we will be so glad to see our many friends and patrons
once more and show them one of the greatest, stocks of saleable
merchandise ever shown in this part of the State.
We Open the Season
With the following marvelous values and we challenge competi
tion to down us:
Five thousand yards of yard-wide Percales, the best that is
g made, only 10e per yard. Mark you these are the same prices on
these goods when cotton was 5c per pound.
Five thousand yards of the famous Merimack Shirting
Prints at 5c per yard, the same old price they were when cotton
was 4c per pound. So much for placing our orders with the
Five thousand yards of the best White India Lawns you ever
saw sold for 10c per yard; sold for 10e yard when cotton was 4ce?
per pound. Our price on this Lawn is the same old price, only
We have not the time nor the space to describe our many
values we have to offer in White Goods and Wash Goods; all we
ask you to do is to go around and post yourself on current prices
and then come to us and we will open your eyes.
One hundred dozen Men's Brown Mixed Half Hose at 5c per
pair, the same old price that we sold them when cotton was 4c
BLACK DRESS GOODS.
Too much cannot be said in support of our great values in
Black Worsted Dress Goods. For spring wear there is nothing
that a lady can get that will take the place of a nice black skirt
and the proverbial shirt waist.
Ladies, you can suit yourselves in just what you need at our
4 store, as we have the greatest line of Black Skirting ever shown
in this town, comprising all of the new and leading fabrics,
Eolians, Ragatines, Etamines, Brilliantines, Cicilians, Satin

Call and see us when you want the best values in Black Dress
Goods and Skirtings from 10e to $1.50 per yard. _ s
We believe we would be doing onrselves..and the public ai
injustice were we not to mention the great values and the splen
did line of Gent's, Youths' and Children's Clothing and Gent's
Furnishing Goods we now have in stock. We 'are honest in our
convictions when we assert that we believe that we have the
grandest line of new Spring Clothing and Gent's Furnishing -
Goods ever shown in this market.
