The town has a couple ot mules that do not seem to be much occupied, and one of them could be hitched to a street sprinkler, and the other to a garbage cart to keep the streets clear! f loosepaper and other unsightly de bris. We would direct the attention of our readers to the magnificient display of beautiful things at Venning's jewelry store. Venning certainly has many articles of value and beauty to attract those who have a longing for jewels,! silver, and cut glass. It will pay you to go to this store and examine the many things he has in china cut glass, and other wares for the household, and his collection of watches, fine jewelry and novelties are sufficient for the most fastidious to make a selection. either for a betrothel, marriage, or birthday present. We can safely say that Yen ning is now carrying a stock the, equal of any jewelry store in this section of the State. The millinery openings in Manning last Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at Jenkinson's and the Mutual was a great event with the ladies and girls, .Tenkinson had a band of music, and The Mutual Dry Goods Co., gave away chrysanthemums for souvenirs. and wherever you would go you would meet up with these floral novelties. Jenkin son with his usual "get up" had .his store well prepared for the occasion .~and many of the latest designs of his millinery department were selected. The Mutual put on additional holiday attire for their "Opening" and_ they not only had their store up in spic and span or'der, but all the pretty girls they could find disengaged, were secured by them to assist the ladies in, putting their hats on straight, and advise those bewildered by the many pretty designs. Both openings were successful, both in dispay and sales. A. little study of the bank statements of the Bank of Summerton and the Bank of Clarendon in our last week's issue, and the statement of the Bank of Manning in tbis issue, will convince the most pessimistic that Clarendon county has, within the past few years, made wonderful progress of recent years. Al three banks have made muoney, and have done much good. The Bank of Manning is the oldest in the county, and therefore the largest. which is shown by the tremendous de posits, and the column of business dune by that institution. The fact that since the other two banks have been organized, the Bank of Manning has increased its business which speaks well for its management. Cheated Death.

Whenever strange characters are seen loitering about the country the author ities should at once be notified, and the par: 'es shadowed. These charac ters strike towns in all manner of forms; they come professing to be look ing for work, and as a rule they are good workmen; they stay in a town long enough to learn "the lay of the land" and then they communicate with the gang, who come armed and equip ped with a diagram locating the safes and the approaches thereto. A few days ago a man was picked up by the police at Laurens, and on being search ed it was found that he had one of these diagrams in his pocket. He was put in jail, and escaped, later he was again picked up loitering about the post office in Spartanburg. He Kept Up in the Race. James S. Barron, President Manches ter Cotton Mills. Rock Hill.

Our readers will remember in our last issue, we suggested that efforts be be made to induce President Wilson of the North Western Railroad to bring that road to Manning. Mayor Bradham and others agreed with the suggestion, and they knowing that THE TIMES editor aid-Captain Wilson are personal friends of long standing. requested him to interview Captain Wilson on the subject. Captain Wilson spent the past week in Manning, engaged in at tending court, and.in trying to defend his railroad interests from damage suits, and under ordinary conditions this would have been an excellent op portunity to bring him and the busi ness interests of Manning together, for we know from an intimate acquaint ance with Captain Wilson that he has always entertained a kind feeling for this town and county, and naturally so, because he is one of the largest taxpayers in the county and was formerly aresident of it, but Captain Wilson is like most all men who, when they feel they have not been justly dealt with, are not going to run pell mell over themselves to do favors for men or communities that manifest an antagonistic spirit, and he feels that such a spirit was manifested towards him in the railroad cases, more especi ally the case where his agent at Davis Station resented an insult from a negro. We approached Captain Wilson on the subject of bringing his road here, and, unfortunately, we found him in no humor to give any encouragement to our argument from his con sideation, the man was indignant at what he regarded unjust treatment he received in our court, and did not hesitate to exoress his opinion of what he calls "the hull, and wire-pulling sys tem" in tbis county. It did not take us long to learn that this was no time to impress an argument for a railroad to Manning on Captain Wilson, never theless, we endeavored to lay before him the advantages Manning had to offer his road, and that in our opinion, i was to the mutual interests of his road and this town for the road to come here, and that because of the acts of a few he should not punish himself and the town. Captain Wilson's reply was, "I realize all that you say is true, and. I admire your zeal in behalf of your town. I like to see men stand by their towns; it is such a spirit that is fast making the town of Summerton a busi ness center for this county, and it is such a sprit which has made, and con tinues to add growth to the city of Sumter. Manning, I would like to see prosper. I have some good friends here, it was their my older children went to school, and I want to feel kindly to that town; at one time I needed but little encouragement from the business interests of Manning to carry my road there, but conditions have changed somewhat. my interests are nearer to Summerton, and besides, I am averse to turning the one cheek when I am smitten on the other. with out fault on my part. However, if the business interests of Manning real l want my road to come here, and have any sound business proposition to The season's first cold may be slight-may yield to early treatment, but the next cold will hang on longer; it will be more troublesome, too.

The court of common pleas remained In session until late Saturday afternoon before it adjourned for the term; from Wednesday it was one steady battle with the case of J. T. Wilder against D. W. Alderman Sons Company. This is the second time this case went to a jury and each time there was a mistrial. The first mistrial the jury stood 6 to(5, and this time 9 to 3. The jury an nounced to the court, it was impossible to agree whereupon Judge Watts or dered a mistrial and discharged them. The case was hard fought. Counsel for Wilder, the plaittiff, were J. F. Rhame, P. A. Wilcox. F. L. Wilcox and J. H. Lesesne, Counsel for Alder man were J. S. Wilson, Charlton Du Rant. W. C. Davis. Both sides were managed with adroitness and skill and the arguments before the jury were manificient and ingenious. The case is a dispute over a little piece of boggy land of the value of less than $5, over which the D. W. Alderman Sons Co., have run a tram railroad. Wilder claims the laud, and is backed up by surveys and deeds; Alderman claims the land is not Wilder's, and he is backed up surveyors; the surveyors differ according to the side they are summoned for, and they are as wide apart with their measurements as are the lawyers with their arguments. It is therefore easy to understand why jurymen fail to agree when experts disagree. It is unfortunate such a case is in our courts, because, the expense of trying these suits fall heavy upon the county, and because, it is clearly evi dent that no good spirit exists between the contending parties: the actual, money value of this land over which the Alderman's tramroad is running, and which Mr. Wilder seeks to re strain, is not in question, but the matter is rooted in business rivalry between two men who have large means at their command. Wilder. of course, claims to be maintaining his property rights, and that in crossing his land. the Aldermans did so with out authoriv from him. The Alder mans own large timber interests in that section, and so does Thomas Wil son: this little piece of Wilder's land is, aweuderstand it, so situated that for Alderman to reach the timber be ond Wilder, he must either cross Wilder or Wilson, or turn his track and go back several miles around. So in this case, the land claimed by Wilder is~an obstruction to the Alder ans, and a bulwark for Wilson. The case hias been tried in Clarendon twice, nd if the contending parties will not get together to effect an amicable set tlement, then we would suggest they take the case to some other county; either side has any confidence in the ntegrity of the other, both sides be ieve unfair methods are resorted to,2 ampering with jurors. and other ractices, which if true, should be 1 ferretted out and the miserable hire ings, together with those who hired them punished severely. If our courts can be run with money and liquor as is lleged. no man is safe in his property rights.

Felder against the same comoany on a verdict for plaintiff for $200, for beingj struck by the depot agent at Davis St a tion, motion for new trials will be ar gued before Judge Watts in Sumter on the 30th inst.

The long trouser has every fault which it is possible to combine in a single garment. It rubs at tihe ankle, which is not true of the kniekerbocker. If you turn up the trouser, then you create a horizontal crease, which is just as bad as the rubbling ci- the edge. A band of leather does not really save the trouser from attrition against the Then consider thle knees. No amount of pressing or streteb'ing will really save a pair of trousers from becoming baggy at this singularly inopportune joint. The man who is true to his trousers must never sit and must nev er run. Only by standing still or at most walking slowly can he preserve the contour of his costume. Here again knickerbockers solve the problem. The chief beauty of knicker bockers is that they are baggy at the knees. Their virtue is the trousers' vice. And there are other advantages. On a muddy day a man with long trousers finds that they are covered with dust. He cannot send them to the wash and has to trust entirely to the clothes brush or vacuum cleaner. But in the case of stockings, all he has to o is to put on a new pair next morning. It is therefore no wonder that two pairs of trousers are necessary to last out one "coat and vest," whereas two "coats and vesta" are necessary to last out one pair of knee breeches.g-ondonl BUSINESS LOCALS.
