We have j t returned from the Northern Market where we have been for several weeks looking after Fall and Winter Styles. and purchasing our Fall and Winter Stock. We have not the time or space to say much this week. but we wish to give notice that we wriil sbow the greatest values in all lines we have ever shown since we have been in the mercantile business. The recent advance in the price of cotton goods caught many of our con temparies without. their fall stock bought and they were coimpelled to buy goods at an advance of from 15 to 30 per cent. but we are pleased to an nounce to our friends that all of our coaton goods we bought in the early spring when cotton was down at the lowest price. hence, we are in a posi tion to take care of our friends. Largest Stock, Lowest Prices, and' the Sqnarest Dealings. Yours truly. W. E. JENKINSON CO. Mr. C. P. Lesesne of Sumter spent1 Monday night in Manning. Col. E. L. Wilkins and Mr. F. C.

The Summerton Graded school with Prof. H. A. C. Walker as principal will begin its fall session on the 18th. The opening of this school was delayed a week on account of the recent death of Prof. Walker's wife. Mr. J. Walton Thames, who has for several years been in the employ of Mr. S. A. Rigby, and who was one of the most popular salesmen in town, left last Monday to accept a position at Wysacky. 'He has our wishes for the cgreatest success. Cards are out announcing the com ing marriage of Miss Zaidee Aldrich Sims, daughter of Hon. W. Gilmore Sims of Barnwell. and Mr. Robert Boyd Cole formerly of Manning. The marriage takes place Thursday :llst inst, in the church of the Holy Apos Mr. Derwood Rhem and family of Rhems have been in Manning the past week visiting Mrs. Rhems brother. Hon. John S. Wilson. They left for their home last Monday evening. Mr. Rhem is one of the leading business, men in Georgetown county and largely interested in commercial affairs. Died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Andrew P. Burgess, about three miles east of Nanning, last Thursday night, Mrs. Francis Oli ver Strange, widow of the late Robert' Strange, aged about 62 years.

Bradham is well pleased with his adopted home, and has the appearance of prospering. He is a young man of educational _ad vantages, fine attainments_ and high character, and 'such men will prosper anywhere. We want our readers to scan closely the advertising columns of this issue, and in them they will find a number of new ads. of which we will hav'e some thing to say next week. On account of our force being short last week it threw us behind in getting up matter, and we were forced to again leave out inter esting articles, but next weeli we will be in good shape and our patrons, ad vertisers and subscribers will be pleased. Mr. W. M. Turner of the Mutual Dry Goods Company has returned from the northern markets, which he reach ed in time to take advantage of the best of selections, and his this season's stock will not only have the very latest in styles, but he claims that his stock was bought on a low price cotton basis. Mr. Turner seems very happy over this seasons trip as he feels that he is in the fight to do a good business. He says all the people want is square treat ment. their money's worth for what : they buy. and they are fast, learnmng : how to detect values. Died at the Brockinton Intirmarv last Thursday afternoon, Miss Eloise Plowden aged about 41 years. The funeral was conducted Friday morning at Bsrewington church by Rev. R. L. Gi'er. The deceased was a daughter of Capt. E. N. Plowden and was to be married on the 6th, today. This fami y has been severely chastened of late. three members have been taken with in the past three months. and several others have been stricken with the same malady. The hearts of the peo ple go out in sincere sympathy to the bereaved family, and especiaily to the aged tather who is nearing the 85 mile stone on his life's journey. The Manning public cotton weighing scheme seems to have fallen through. Mr. C. R. Harvin was elected weigher, and the petition he was elected upon, was to weigh cotton in the business part of the town, but objection was raised to this, and also to his weighing at the depot. Under the law he must erect a platform, and he has not done so as yet. neither has he qualified as the law directs. The cotton coming in now is weighed by those who buy. just as if n- wihe was selected. Mr. v. E. Jenkinson reached home from New York, Philadelphia and Bal timore last Sunday morning, complete ly worn out from his labors in selecting goods for this seasons business. To buy for such a large business, takes mental and physical labor,and from the way goods are rolling in, Jenkinson must have put it in. He claims he has his competitors skinned on prices and that when he gets rested up. lie will lead his brethren a chase for bulOSs. The trustees of the Moses Levi 'Mc morial Institute, at her req UeSt. Iaye released Miss Mary Stewart Bruuson, as one of the teachers to accept a )osi tion in Sumter. Miss Brunson forimer ly taught in Sumter, and when her parents moved to lanning she applied and was elected for this school, and when the last session closed she was re-elected, but since then, her parents moved back to Sumter. and on that ac count she requested the release. Her successor will be selected in a few days. We would direct attention to the new advertismfent of W. P. Hawkins & Co.. in this issue. This firm has made every arrangement to handle horses and mules. and they will wait until the weather is cooler before going into market, but they have on hand and daily receiving a fine stockof wagons, harness. etc. W. P. Hawkins & Co., do not sell a shoddy article covered with paint. Their wagons and buggies are of standard build and everything they handle is first class. The public can feel assured of honest treatment at their hands. We have been informed that the county commissioners will soon publish a statement of facts relating to the things for which they were criticized by THE TIMES, and the grand jury. One of the commissioners told us that they would make a complete and satis factory showing. We shall await the statement, with the hope that when it is made we can give to the board the exoneration they crave. There never has been any dishonesty charged. or even intimated, unbusnesslike methods and extravagance was the charge, and we are sure if the commissioners can show the charges were not merited. it will be a pleasure to us to set them straight before the public. V e understand that in all probalility there will be nothing done to remedy the trouble with the heating facilities in the school building this season, and we hope it is not true, because it would be a great mistake to again subject the teachers and children to the danger and annoyance of a poorly heated and smoky building. There were several days of the last term that the school had to be dismissed, on account of the smoke, and at other times the rooms were so badly heated that away from the store, water would freeze on the floor. Such a condition as this is dangerous to health, and our authori ties should remedy it. We understand the remedy lies in tearing out the present flues and making them larger, and it will cost about S100. As a mat ter of safety and humanity spare not a few dollars, but go ahead and put the building in a healthy and comfortable condition. If.the town authorities will not do this very necessary work, then we say the trustees will be justified in having the work done anyway and pay for it. out of the school funds, even if it has to cut the session short. it is better to have a short term in comfort than a long term with chances of pneumonia. Rheumatism, gout, backache. acid oison, are results of kidney trouble. ollister's Rockyv.Mountain Tea goes directly to the slat of the disease and ures when all- else fails 35 cents. Dr. W. E. Brown & Co. Our School Opens on the 18th, Instant. Professor J. C. Daniel, Superinten dent of the Manning Graded Schools, has arrived, and we cordially welcome' him and his wife to our town. We feel sure from what we have already heard f this gentleman that our town has been fortunate in securing his services. e has had several years experience in the work, and. wherever he has, been the authorities urged his remainig. He is making school teaching his life's work, and his mind and heart is devoted to his profession. But Professor Daniel, let him be eyer so well qualided, cannot make a success of his work here unless e receives the co-operation of the trustees and the patrons of the school, and we urge upon our trustees to re member their ollice is not merely to select teachers and pay them off, but they have a duty, as well as has the principal of the school and his assist ants. 4. We want to see this school reach the standard a town of this size merits, nd we can have it if the school is thoroughly disciplined. We do not mean that all of the discipline must be spent upon the scholars, the teachers should come under it as well, and if Professor Daniel makes the right start by requiring the teachers to teach, and n~ot merely hear recitations, and then require the children to study at home nd at school he, will add much to his reputation as an educator, at the same time be doing an invaluable service to this community. The Moses Levi Memorial Institute has not made the progress it should have, and the fault was, in our opinion, lax methods. The children were not made to work, they would be given lessons requiring bnt a few minutes to learn and then their books would be cast aside. They did not have to work, they simply went through the little task of preparing for a recitation. This resulted in many being advanced who should not have been advanced, be cause all they had to back up their ad vancement was the recitation marks and not because of having their studies thoroughly grounded. We hope a new life will be infused into the school. and all of us should give Professor Daniel every encourage mnent in his work, and make him feelI that he and his wife are not among strangers, but among friends who gladly welcome them as a valuable acquisition to the society of the town. The Better Way The tissues of the throat are inflamed and ir rita te d; you cough, and there is more irrita tion-more coughing. You take a cough mixture and it eases the rrtaton-for a while. You take SCOTTS and it cures the cold. That's what is necessary. It soothes the throat because' it reduces the irritation ; cures the cold because. it drives out the inflammation; bkis up the weakened tissues bccause it nourishes them back to heir natural strength. That's, ho;W Scott's Emulsion deals with a wre throat, a cough, a cold, WE'LL sEND YOU 'A SAMPLE FREE. SCCm T & BOWNIE.0Pr " c*et* Open the Schools. The trustees of the various school districts, except Manning and Summer ton. are hereby advised to open the white schools in their respective dis tricts, Monday, October 2nd, and the negro schools, except Manning, Mon day, Novemiber 13th. Ou- purpose in fixiug the above dates. which we think will readily be seen and appreciated. is to avoid hav ing both classes of teachers present their claims for app'oval and payment the same day. If it is found impracticable to start a school at the time above given, and the postponement is for four weeks it will serve the same purpose. S. P. HOLLADAY. Supt. Education. Buy Cotton Direct. There are complaints among the farmers about Manning's cotton mar ket, based upon the fact that the buyers here representing exporters are in different about buying from the farmer directly. They seem to prefer buying from the merchant. The farmer sus pects he is not getting full price for his cotton, because he believes the merch ant will not bother with it unless he can make a profit, and the fact of the buyers taking up at the close of the day, the cotton bought by the merch ants, creates the impression that there is an understanding between buyer and merchant. There are several buyers here who should bring an active competition; there should be no private understand ings, the market is injured if the idea prevails that a full price is not paid, and we believe it will be to the interest of farmer and merchant and buyer to have a free, open market, and let the one paying the most take the cotton. As it is, our buyers are not in competi tion with the merchants, and when they do bid on a bale of cotton, they underbid the merchant, and later in the day buy the same cotton from the merchant. If these conditions are true, it is not helping our market and should be corrected now in the early stages of the season. Men Past Sixty in Danger. More than half of mankind over ixty years of age suffer from kidney nd bladder disorders, usually enlarge ment of prostate gland. This is both painful and dangerous. and Foley's Kidney Cure should be taken a' 'he arst sign of danger, as it corrects ir egularities and has cured many old men of this disease. Mr, Rodney Bur 2ett, Rock Fort, Mo., writes: "I suffer d with enlarged prostate gland and idney trouble for years and after tak ng two bottles of Foley's Kidney Cure [ feel better than I have for twenty ears, although I am now 91 years old."

We find there is a common error abroad as to a druggist's weights, many believing when they buy cream of tartar, borax, sulphur or any of the 1 thousand-and-one other items that druggists sell, they get apothecaries' weight-twelve ounces to the pound. This is a mistake. We give you avoirdupois weight-sixteen ounces to the pound. Apothecaries' weight is used only at the prescrip tion counter or in the preparation of medicinal preparations. One pound apothecary or troy con sists of twelve ounces of 480 grains each, a total of 5,760 grains to the pound. One pound avoirdu pois -consists of sixteen ounces of 487j grains each, a total of 7,000 grains to the pound. The apothecary ounce is the heavier. but the avoirdu pois pound is the heavier by 1,240 grains, because it contains sixteen avoirdupois ounces. You get F a 7,000 grain pound here and the finest quality of - drugs that money can buy. RHAME'S DRUG STORE. CoMPLETENESS. It is always a pleasure to trade at a drug store which is complete-which is not continually "out" of the very thing that you want, which has grown -with the demands of the locality, and gives cus tomers just what they are looking for. Such a store is ours. You do not have to ask us twice to get a thing for you. If we haven't it in stock already one request is enough. We will get it.

If there happens to be anything which it would be an accommodation to you for us to handle, we wish that you would let us know about it.
