Mrs. W. S. Harvin returned from Charleston last Monday. Miss Julia Styles of Eastover is visit inz Miss Mabel McFaddim. Mr. Joe Wilkie has commenced the residence of Mr. J. D. Gerald. Hon. J. E. Tindal is a district dele gate to the national convention. Miss Georgie Thomas of Charleston is visiting the family of Mr. W. S. Harvin. - Mr. F.. Earle Bradham has come home after spending the season teach ing at Due West. The school children of this place are on a tension, looking forward to the closing of the school. Hon. J. C. Lanham was prevented from attending the State convention on account of extreme illness in his family. The only glory some of us have is looking to the light; but it's dazzling enough sometimes to recompense for all Our office force is short this week one man, he is in St. Louis doing the expo sition while the rest of us are toiling to get out a newspaper. There will be preaching at Fellow ship church next Sunday a~t 4:30 p. mn. R'ev. J. J. Myers will preach. The public cordially invited. Mr. S. I. Till was impressed as a .member of the Clarendon aelegation to take-the place of Dr. Woods, who was prevented from attending. Upon our desk 'wahave several let ters endorsing the views and senti ments expressed in the letter of "Old Timer" ini last wveek's Tn!Es. Died near Sardinia last Sunday night Miss Bessie Player, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. 3. M. Player. The deceased was about sixteen years of age and had -for a long time been an invalid. The funeral took place at Midway church Monday evening. We are happy to say, now that our our scl-ool is nearing its close we have heard nocomnplaintsaganstOurteachers K. and we hope i~he trustees will re-elect every one of the present faculty. Pro * fessor Bovd has accomplished a hercu ]ean task-~served a whole session with out a rumpus being kicked up. Daniel Carter, colored, died in this todrn last Monday of lockjaw, caused from a nail getting stuck into his foot. The deceased suffered intensely for five days and death was a relief. Carter enjoyed the confidence of his white ac * quaintances, was well-behaved and very reliable. Colored citizens like him al ways have many white friends. * We take pleasure in calling attention to the candidates' cards of Mr. C. R. Felder for Clerk of the Court. Mr. Felder has a host of friends throughout the county,was Clarendon's'first Super visor and has otherwise served the county. Mr. F. ~Earle Bradhanr for * Superintendent of Education. This is ,a high honor graduate of Wofford col lege, and since, he has been engaged inm practical teaching. Died at her home near Manning last Friday night, Mrs. Mattie Ridgil,aged about 40 years. The deceased was not ed for her untiring energy and good ness of~ heart, and she will be sadly missed in the neighborhood. She left surviving, her husband, Mr. B. Frank * Ridgill, and six children. The funeral services were ennducted by Rev. G' T. Gresham3 at Fellowship church, and were attended by a large number of relatives and friends. The 'efort being made for the local cemetery is a laudable one and should receive the active eneouragement of every person. An association should1 be formed which should purchase some of the adjoining property and extend' the present limits of the grounds. The own~ers of adjoining property, we have no doubt, will sell the association at a more reasonable figure than they would to individuals, and now while there is vet a surviving trustee of the old asso ciation mrch complication can be avoid ed by getting together now. Two of Clarendon's citizens made a close call from a watery grave last Thursday afternoon, while sailing in a boat off Sullivan's Island. Billy Dyson -andC.J.Gibson while taking in the sights at the reunion joined a party from Fort Sumter to take a sail, Dyson proved a Jonah, his hat blew off, and in attempt ing to recover it the boat capsized and two of the party were drowned, the others were rescued by soldiers and the 'life saving crew from the Island. Dy son and Gibson were taken to the hospi tal and the doctors gave them the nec essary medical aid to return home the next day. News has reached us that the people in the Salem section are chafing under being left out of representation in the Legislature, and they are going to have a meeting of their respective clubs to ascertain Salem's choice for a Rep resentative, and endeavor to present a man for the rest of' the county to vote *for. It is a fact. Salem is by location. as well as taxable property, entitled to a share of the public offices: it cer~ tainly ought to have representation on the legislative ticket. Every man who runs for office cpaters strongly for the Salem vote. Now the Salemites are tired of vote furnishing for others to hav all of the offce-getting. The Mutual Dry Goods Company had quite a successful "white goods open ing" last Wednesday evening and Thursday. The attendance was fine and the display beautiful. These young men never do things half way and all of their undertakings are with a view to make a lasting impression. We are told that Captain Wilson has about arranged a schedule for the Wil son and Summerton railroad which will enable those living along the route to reach Manning in the morning by con necting with the train from Charleston, and return to their homes in the after noon by connecting with the train from Columbia. We hope this is true, as it will be almost as much help to our town as if the Wilson train came direct into Manning. With such a schedule peeple from St. Paul, Summerton, Davis and Jordan could shop a whole day here and get back to their homes in time for supper, which, will be a great induce ment to turn the tide of trade from Sumter to Manning. Mrs. S. A. Geddings of Paxville left Manning Tuesday of last week to visit her daughter at Harpers, on the Georgetown and Western railroad. On reaching the water tank near that sta tion the porter rushed in calling out "Harpers" and grabbed up her valise. rs. Geddings naturally followed the porter, and when in the act of stepping from the car the train moved otr and jerked her violently to her knees se rerely injuring her. A Doctor Lee and some others came to her assistance at :he station, and her brother, Mr. A. P. Hill, wishes us to express his thanks to :hem for their kindness. Here is a case )f gross careless on the part of the rail oad and it will be surprising to us if they do not have to pay damages. A glance over our candidates' column will convince the most doubting that the Chase will be more earnest for the dol lar than for a patriotic desire to improve the country's condition.- Let the good work go on until the day for filing pledges; the more the merrier, and the [ewer votes it will take to get into the second race. Aspirants for offize be not dismayed by numbers. for the greater the number the -sweeter the victory, and we who delight in count ing your shekels will continue gleeful ly in counting more. Hurry up fellow citizens, gentlemen and patriots, all ye that are office-hungry come unto us and we will give you an opportunity to ;peak with our friends. Come along people while it lasts, haud us your Wil liam and get under the starting string, and when the flag drops our word for it a large majority will hear the cheers of the victors. A very sad accident occurred to Dr. T. J. Davis of Summerton last Saturday afternoon. The doctor was on his way to see a patient near Davis Station, and having an appointment for a consulta tion with other physicians, he was in a hurry. Mr. Allen Shorter who was in wagon, noticing the doctor's appar ent hurry turned out to give him the road. Doctor Davis' buggy wheel struck Shorter's wagon and both were turned over into the ditches on either side of the road. The doctor's spirited horse took fright, dashed ogf,threw him gut headlong, and by some means the lines became wrapt around his body. He was dragged several hundred yards and when picked up he was gasping as 1 in extremis. His head, face and body are badly bruised and cut, some of the wounds are quite serious, but Doctors Wilson of Jordan, Mood and Stukes of Summerton and Geiger of Manning who responded immediately upon getting the messages, and gave the sufferer] their best attention, say that if there ae no intei-nal injuries, the wounds while serious and painful are not fatal. Doctor Davis is now at the residence of bis brother, Joseph, where every atten zion is given him, and with the good aursing he is receiving he will be at his practice again, with a new horse we ope, in a few weeks. 11s that come from Summer's Heat A mother need not fear to greet, When with "TEETHINA" she's sup plied, No ills with baby need abide.

Dear Sir: Let's have a little. private talk by ourselves on business; nobody else, lease, read. You want,to know how to do a cheap ob of painting, and have it look good. Here It is: The cheapest thing there is in the way of a good looking job-say nothing about its being good-is Devoe; the regulai- thing in Devoe. The reason is: Devoe goes further' than anything else. Lead-and-oii is good looking; don't go so far and costs more. The other paints are more or less short in one way or another: don't go so far and costs more than Devoe. Devoe costs least of all: you don't mind its lasting longer do you? We can't help it; a paint that goes further lasts longer; we can't help it. Yours truly, 9 F. W. DEV'OE & Co., Manning Hardware Company sells our paint. There are sorrows enough in life to make us thank God heartily for the music of the songs that come after. Friendship may only be a name, but it is fortunate for some of us it is fre quently written on the back of a 30-day Shylock was the man who wanted a pound of human flesh. There a re m a ny Shylocks now, the convales cent, the consumptive, the sickly child, the pale young woman, all want human flesh and they can get it-take Scott's Emulsion. Scott's Emulsion is flesh and blood, bone and muscle. It feeds the nerves, strengthens the digestive organs and they feed the whole body. For nearly thirty years Scott's Emulsion has been the great giver of human flesh, We will send you a couple of ounces free. SCOTT & BOWNE, Chemists. 409-415 Pear! Street. New Yorkg. Closing of Summerton Graded Scbool. The past three days Summertrn has been in a state of gaity and expectation. The occasion was the closing of its graded school. The people of that :ommunity feel proud of their educa tional institution, and their children, I nd well they have a right to be. We regret exceedingly that lack of space md help forbids making any extended >bservations. Rev. J. G. Beckwith de ivered the annual sermon Sunday to a arge and appreciative audience.

Sumter's Chaingang Is Distinguished. eo George Washington Murray, colored,_ rho enjoyed the distinction of having een given a certificate of election to Jongress over General E. W. Moise by he first Reform Board of State Can assers, was convicted last Thursday in 3 he Sumter Court of General Sessions >f forgery and sentenced to pay a fine ~ >f $250 and to serve three years upon he chaingang. Murray's attorney en- in leavored to get a new trial wvhen the a ury brought in a verdict of guilty, and ailing in this, he has appealed to the upreme Court.I The testimony in the case showed je hat Murray, like a great many other reedy money-makers, in the desire to leed those they have in their power, ~ resort to means unlawful and criminal, ut in this case the graft was held up Ld taken to the courts. There are many white Murrays who, ] id they get what they .deserve under ai he law, would by serving terms on the S ~haingang also. The conviction of Murry should be a arning to a class of merchants and noney-lenders who have and are con-d inuing to get rich by unlawful devicesC o take advantage4>f the poor and igno-L ,ant. We know it to be a fact that ~here tare men occup-ying conspicuous ~ositions in church and society, whose awful and moral place is "doing time" or the county or State in criminal ~1 ~arb. The reason these men have not ti een torced to face a jury is because i' he class of people they rob are afraid - o demand their rights. The poor white nan dare not and the "nigger" thinks e has no show. The result is that -I hese mercenary fiends, feeling safe in rt he fears of their victims, continue to leed and rob them. But take care, auman vultures, lest you oppress the ~vrong man, and when you do, like ri iurray,whose ownership of eight thou- o sand acres of land could not save him .. Erom the chaingang, nor will your wealth and white skin save you.. A Cure for Piles. "I had a bad case of piles," says G.F. Carter of Atlanta, Gr., "and consulted C a physician who advised me to try a boxd :f DeWitt's Witch Hazel Salve. I pur- e :hased a box and was entirely cured. [t is splendid for piles, giving relief in tantly, and I heartily recommend it tod all sufferers" DeWitt's Witch Hazel i Salve is unequalled for its healing qual- c ities. Eczema and other skin diseases, also sores, cuts burns and wounds of every kind are quickly cured by it. Sold by The R. B. Loryea Drug Store. r Meeting of Citizens. Manning, S.
