Manning had the largest crowd last Monday we have seen here for years. Farmers convention, and the celebra tion of emancipation day brought out a full complement of both races. It was a big orderly crowd. A gentleman was in town last _Satur day, looking for a site at the railroad, with a view to organizing a company -to establish a wholesale grocery com pany. Those owning the available property put up a freeze-Out price. Married last Thursday afternoon, at the home of bride's parent in Manning, by Rev. JT. M. Holladay, Mr. Charles . Harvin, Jr., and Miss Susan-B. Mc Cullough. The bride and groom took the evening train for Charleston, with the well wishes of a host of friends. Mrs. W. M.

Had den to say that the colored churches of Clarendon county of every denomina tion are invited to Manning the 3rd, Friday in January to hear Dr. J. E. Shepard lecture on the Sunday school work Sessions will be held 11 a. m. 3 p.m. and 8 p. m. All citizens of the town of Manning should attend the meeting at the court house next Monday night at 7:30 o'clock o hear the report of the committee ap pointed to investigate the waterworks proposion. This meeting should be w~ell attended as it is very important to every property owner in the town. The town of Foreston was taken by storm last Wednesday night by a crowd of girls and boys from Mannmng, who wvere the guests of Miss Cora Spr-ott. The party was about twenty strong and the came away from the little town the happiest mortals we have seen during the holidays. Everyone of themi rep)ort he party at Miss Sprotts home "great" and a big, huge, immense time. These' young folks were made up largely of school girls and boys at home from col leges. and the attention given them by the Sprott family and other people in the hospitable town was highly appre elted and enioyed.. Farmers Convention. There assembled in the Court House last Monday about 300 farmers, under the call of temporary chairman E. D. Hodge, and it was manifest that this important. element of our county came here to enter into an organization look ing to relief from the greed and op pression of the speculators, who know not. and care less for the condition 01 the tiller of the soil. Chairman Hodge called the meeting to order and stated its Object. RIev. R. A. Sublett made a very intereting ap peal for the farmers to organize. and Capt. Bradham also spoke on the same lines. After it was decided to effect a permanent organization, a committee was appointed by the chair to nominate oticers, and they reported as follows: President E. ). Iodge,. Vice President Rev. R. A. Sublett. Secretary A. J. lichbourg, Louis Appelt correspond ing Secretary and E. B. Felder Treas urer. The followirg resolutions were adopted: Whereas, the present price of cotton is too low. leaving no margin for the producer and unwarranted from the condition of spinners and, Whereas. believing that the govern ment estimate of the cotton crop is er roneous, which caused the "Bears" to press the price down to six and seven cents per pound and, Whereas. the great demand for man ufactured goods at prices satisfactory to the manufacturers, who paid at from 10 to 1 cents per pound for their cot ton, though there be a 12.000,000 bales, 10 cents cotton would only be commeas urate with the demand. Therefore: we, the farmers, merch ants and bankers. and c o t t o n holders of Clarendon County. South Carolina, in convention now assembled. Resolved, 1. That we refuse to sell any more cotton for anything less than 10 cents per pound middling basis. 2. In order to prevent an over pro duction of cotton for the year 1905, that we will curtail our cotton acreage and guano bills 25 per cent. under last year's crop. 3. That we will endeavor to enlist the merchants and bankers to co-oper ate with us in the curtailing of the crop acreage and fertilizer bills by re fuing to advance the amount required. thereby curtailing 25 per cent. of the tenants' crop, for whom they furnish supplies. 4. That in view of the proposed or .anization of the bankers all over the cotton growiig States. with the cotton farmers of the same. for the express purpose of securing a legitimate price tor their cotton, that the organization in our county shall be subject to and in harmony vith the general State or anization. 5. That a copy of these resolutions be furnished to each of our county pa pers, and also a copy to each of the three leading daily papers. namely, News and Courier, Greenville News, and Columbia State, with a request that other papers copy, that the whole State may see how Clarendon stands on this great movement. The chairman was authorized to ap point three men in each township with a view to get the townships organized. The meeting was harmonious, and the discussions were conducted in a calm and dignified manner, everybody seemed anxious to aid in bringing about a better condition. The feature which provoked some heated discussion was reference to admitting the negro: some contended to admit him would open the door to social equality, while others contended that the negro could have a membership and that the question of race should not be considered, as the urpose of the organization was one of usiness entirelv and had no relation o social matters. This position did ot meet with the views of the majority md it was decided to ask the colored armer to organize themselves into or ~anizations of their own but work in onjuction with this one. hamberlain's Congh Remedy the Best Made. "In my opinion Chamberlain's Cough emedy is the best made for colds,'' says Mrs. Cora Walker of Porterville, alifornia. There is no doubt about its eing the best. No other is so sure a reventive of pneumonia. No other is o pleasant and safe to take. These are ood reasons why it should be prefer red to any other. The fact is that few eople are satisfied with any oiher after aing once used this remedy. For sale y The R. B. Loryea Drug Store, Isaac NI. Loryea Prop. Order No. 7. Headquarters Co.

H. B. RICHARDSON, Capt. Commanding. Salt pork is a famous old fashioned remedy for con sumption. "Eat plenty of pork," wvas the advice t the consumptive 50 and Ioo years ago. Salt pork is good if a man can stomach it. The idea behind it is that fat is the food the consumptive needs most. Scott'sEmulsionisthemod ern method of feeding fat to the consumptive. Pork is too rough for sensitive stomachs. Scott's Emulsion is the most refined of fats, especially prepared for easy digestion. Feeding him fat in this way, which is often the only way, is half the battle, but Scott's Emulsion does more than that. There is some thing about the combination of cod liver oil and hypophos phites in Scott's Emulsion that puts new life into the weak parts and has a special action on the diseased lungs. A sample wil be - ' sent free upon request. - Be sure that this picture in the form of a label is on the wrapper of every bottle of Emulsion you buy. SCOTT & ME~s BOWNE, CHEMISTS, 409 Pearl St., N.

Loryea Drug Store. Tournament. The davs of chivalric interest are still here, as was manifested last Thursday at the tournament. In the olden times, tournaments in this country were the greatest of social events. It was on these occasions that a great rivalry existed with the young ladies, and the young gentlemen would cultivate a grace of dress and manner. Great crowds would attend, and the ceremonies of crown ing the queen was conducted with great eclat. The crowd hera last Thursday was immense, people were here from several counties, and some from Char leston. There was a line display of well groomed horses and elegant vehicles pretty girls were in abundance. The gallant knights were costumed, and the array of courtiers, each with an ambition to crown a queen made an inspiring picture. MIr. D. M1. Bradham served as the herald for the occasion, and well did he perform his part-he forgetting that time had placed weights upon his heels, and stiffened the mar row in his bones. The knights were Mlessrs. W. J. MIul drow, Algie Hawkins, Stewart Harvin, Percy Harvin, A. C. Bradhamn. A. C. Davis. Willie O'Brien, E. R. Plowden. Jr., Muldrow. J1. B. Prevatt was clown. The track was heavy and this opera ted against the running to a consider able extent. After the races were gone through with, it was announced by the judges that Messrs. W. J. Muld row and Percy Harvin had tied for the first prize, and after they had run over the decision gave the first prize, a beauti ful saddle to M1r. Percy Harvin; second prize, an elegant bridle to Mr. W. J. MIuldrow, and third prize, a pair of spurs, to Mr. Algie Hawkins. Mr. Harvin having been declared tha win ner of the first prize, crowned M1iss Lyl Harvin as queen, and Mr. M1uldrow being winner of second prize, choose Miss Lide, of Sumter county, as maid of honor. ~The third prize winner will spur up, and at the next tournament will crown the queen.

At an early hour last Monday morn ing the colored people were astir, and in gala attire. It was their day of days and each and every one of them seemed to realize that it was their day of thanksgiving and rejoicing. There was an immense crowd, a band of music to enliven the occasion, and people from all over the county. A stand was erect ed on the court house square, and around it gathered the multitude, and upon it wvere seated the committee and those who took part~ in the exercises. After a very elaborate program had been concluded, consisting of music, nraer, remarks by the chairman, read ing of the emancilpation proclamation, and on essay by one of the young ladies, Chairman Stewart, in a speech. of well rounded sentences, introduced Thomas L. Grant. of Charleston, the orator of the occasion. The speaker began his address by reciting the history of the race's induction to America. down to Lincoln's proclamation of liberation, concluding this part of his address with having the immense audience join him i singing. "Praise God from Whom all Blessings Flow." He then went on and portrayed the negre's advancement in all the avocations of life, and gave some rood, wholesome advice. The speech'was wveil delivered, and some of his p~eriods were indeed bursts of elo quence. It wvas conservative in tone and pleasing as well as instructive. The crowd was large and well behaved, and the committee in charge deserve credit for their excellent management. No Pity Shown. "For years fate was after me con tinuously," writes F. A.
