In January 1908 there was in the county treasury about $6,000 surplus, belonging to the public school fund, in quiring a few days-ago, illicted the in formation that this fund is exhausted having been paid out to the school dis tricts. The larger part of it went to Pinewood, from where it came. The morning papers of last Monday announce that N. G. Evans, a brother of ex-Governor John Gary Evans, had a valise stolen from him at Denmark last Sunday, containing $8,000 in cur. rency. The valise was stolen by a ne gro on the train. who jumped oil with his booty and escaped into the woods. Later: It is now said there was no mon ey in the valise. Died in Sumter yesterday, Mr-.

Alderman and others in terested in the manufacture of lumbe went to Washington last week to con fer with congressmen and to protc against the taking off of the tariff o lumber. Thev claim the abolishing c the $2 per thousand on lumber will no reduce the price to the local consumer but the effect would be to put them ou of the Northern market, where 95 p cent of their produet goes. Quite a crowd .fathered near th policemen's shanty, in iroun of t h court house square, last Thursday eve ning to witness the destroying of sev eral gallons of contraband liquor seized and confiscated by the police This was Manning's first "pouring out' and the probability is, it will not b4 the last, as the authorities are ver, active, an. are naking it so hot fo: those who are disposed to violate th liquor laws that they will have t< move beyond the town limits, or 1< made to pay a heavy penaltv. We have been asked to publish at opinion, as to whether the police havn a right "to select the names of juror; for town cases." So far as we know there is no law to prevent the polic from naming citizens to act as jurors although, we think perhaps it would b( better if the names of all of the qualifi ed voters of the town were put in a box and from this, juries be drawn in th( presence of the defendant. In that cas( there could be no excuse for a plea o partisanship. The town should dispens justice with an even hand, the same a! any other court. The town has entered upon its second week of trial of parties charged witi the violation of the liquor ordinance. Yesterday morning Chamberlain Mil ler, a colored merchant, was tried and found guilty in a few minutes after the jnry was given the case. Captain W C. Davis represented the accused, and endeavored to quash the indictment on the ground that council had no legal ordinance, inasmuch as it had not com plied with the law regarding the en actment of a law. The jury. however, did not lay any stress by this objection. There may be an appeal on the ground indicated by counsel's objection. Ia the afternoon, John Gill was tried on the same charge, with similar evidence, and he too was convicted. Jim Pack, a former offender was also convicted. Read the advertisement of A. Abrams in this issue. It is a closing out sale, and everything in the stock will be sold at actual cost. MIr. Abrams contemplates leaving Manning, to engage in business in Baltimore. He has a splendid stocki of goods, and buyers will find bargains Mr. Abrams has been doing a growing business in this town. but he thinks he will do better in a large city where he proposes to go into manufacturing; with that object in view he wants to turn h well seier' -l stock into cash, and buy. eas with to cash will no doubt take ad vantage of his offer.

The opportunity ~s here, take the chance while it lasts. THE TIES editor has received Sev eral letters asking him to make reco mmendations for the position of censui taker in this county. He has nothing to do with these positions, nor does he expect to have. When the time comes, the congressman will no doubt commu nicate with men in different sections The Director of the Census has been in structed to disregard party lines, which may be construed to mean that the ne gro gill be eliminated from considera tion for appointment in the South. Il THE TIES editor is consulted aboul these positions he will endeavor to ree ommend such men as are qualified. There will be eighteen appointees it this county, one for each township, they must be able to write a good legible hand, must be sober and polite, and be persons that are lit to enter the home: of our people. About 9:30 last Saturday night a ir broke out in the stables in tne rear o! the store of B. A. Johnson. destroyint the stables and the warehouse of the Manning hardware company, loss aboul $1,300. insurance $500. Johnson had n< insurance on the stables. Fortunatet there was no high wind blowing and the fire company was able to confine the fin to the two wooden structures. At one time the large two story wooden carriage house of W. P.

The trustees of the Paxville schoo were in M1anning yesterday, seeking information about getting up the nec essary election for a bond issue to buili a modern school house. Since the las windstorm many in that section hayt realized the danger of crowding large number of children in an unsafe building, and the desire to have a com fortable and strong house is fast gain ing force.

L ll of those who favored the legal sale k of lijuor, now that we have prohibition, want the law enforced, but they want it enforced not nrely to replenishi the town treasurv b w bcaul i;t is the lw. Th ere a re m'any who voted for prohibi tion, as well as against who are not v:in. to accept as convincing the evi e dlence of detectives who depend soielV upon convictions for thir pay. The reason for this is, they regard meu who - have no interest n a community who come here with the object of securing evidence against. the blind tigers for pay, as not as reliable as would men be whose object is to uphold the law in the interest of good citizenship, and unless these detectives have their testimony backed up by evidence of a reliable character, juries as a rule, hesitate to conviet. At the same time. their failure to convict is no indication that they sympathize with the lawbreakers. The town authorities are making commendable efforts to enforce prohi bition in this town, the police are active and every good citizen will give them r credit for it, but because no convictions were secured from the several cases t tried last week, is only because the evi dence was not suficient in the judgment of the jurors to punish the accused. t There was no one more favorable to the retention of the dispensary than the t writer, and there is no one who is more anxious for the law to be enforced. The enforcement of the law in a law ful manner is an absolute need., other Swise the town would be over-run with aw-breakers of every variety. It will I not do to encourage the blind tiger ele ment in the belief they will not be con vieted: get the proper evidence against them and when convicted punish them to the limit. but convict. them on con vincinr evidence. and not becaused the accused. may perch ance, be under sus lpRcion. He did good Work. Hon. 0. C. Searborough, of Summer ton was in Manning last Monday, and gave us a pleasant call. wh.ich we ap ureciated. In the course of conversation he directed our attention to several measures that weut through the gener al assembly, that he had worked indus triously for. among them was the Act to retain the state's denartment of agri I culture. introduced by Mr. Richards of Kershaw: the Act to regulate the man ufacture. sale and delivery of commer cial fertilizers, introduced by Senator Laney of Chesterfield. This Act is in many of its details similar to the one in troduced by himself the session before, and it is one which is a great protection to the farmers. The aPt to prescribe the punishment for nam.iess crimes which we stated was lost, on account of the Wharton bill being similar, was not lost as we thought but so amended as to em body Mr. Scarborough's bill and the Carey provision relating to the takingr of dispositions of female witnesses. A great portion of Mr. Scarborough's I work was done on the committees where legislation is shaped. It is frequently the case that a member of the legisla tor whose name is not attached to bills does a vast amount of work. For in stance the Laney fertilizer bill was fought in committee by the fertilizer interests, and here is where Mr. Scar borough's work was mainly done, while I the bill was credited to Senator Laney, 1 he had to have the active aid of the E House or it would never have passed. Had we been in possession of this infor- 4 mation at the time. we would have used it in our capitol letter, as it is our pur pose to give to every man that which( he is entitled to. As we have already said in our cani tol correspondence, the entire delega tion aid their duty conscientiously, and 1 the introduction of bills is not always 1 an indication of a good legislator, for 1 it is often the case a member does bet ter work in studying the bills introduc. - ed. tI Will the Town have Sewerage. There seems to be much opposition to the sewerage question in this town, based principally on the unfairness of taxing the whole town for a convenience of a few, and we doub:, if the authori-1 ties will have easy sailing, should they attempt to act on the proposition of boi rowing $4,000 in the name of the town. for such a purpose. To our mind, sewv erage is necessary for the court house and the school house, and this can be had without further burdening the tax payers, as to the private residences on Brook-s street, the fifth avenue of Man ning, let those tenderlings pay for the conveniences they seek, without calling on those who are not to use it. to con tribute. The proposition to run about a mile of sewerage pipe through Brooks street at the expense of the entire town is athering more and more opposition, even if the town treasury wvas full to bursting, there are many citizens who feel there are uses for the money which would be more beneficial. We need de cent sidewalks, they would be used gen erally, but the sewverage as proposed would only be used on one street, and not by all who live on that sti-eet eith er. Hence the opposition. So far as we are concerned, it matters not one way or another, and if it did, our views would have no weight with the present council; we exist only at taxpaying time, this, they have demon strated, the signs of which may be seen on a street post or two, but there will come a time when perhaps a taxpayer who pays more town taxes than any member of council will have his views weighed the same as any other citizen who has interests to guard. Auld-Stansill. Mr. Eugene Stansill, of this city, and Miss Hattie Auld, of Eastover, were married at 3 o'clock yesterday after noon at the home of Mr. and., Mrs. T. H. Auld, the bride's parents, in East over, Rev. R. S. Gillespie, officiating. SThe ceremony was performed on the porch, the bride and groom standingr beneath a large wedding bell. The only attendants were the Dame of Honor, -Mrs. Hyman, of Camden, and the best - man, Mr. J1. E. King, of Sumter. tThe porch, where the ceremony was performed and the halls and dining ;room and p~arlors were beautifully and .artistically decorated with smilax and f feirn and were in harmony with the Shappy occasion and the iresh and ten - der greenery of the spring foliage and t lowers with which all out of the doors - was adorned by nature's own hands. 1 When the first notes of the Wedding -March. which was played by Miss Sadie Seav on the piano and Miss Helen Till t inghast. on the violin, were sounded the bride accompanied by the Dame of Hon . or slowly descended the smilax-clad and 3 fern-embowered stairway, meeting - groom rand best man beneath the wed ding bell on the porch. The simple, sol - emn ceremony was soon over and then came the congr-atulations of the many friends of the happy couple who were e present. Following the ceremony a re ception was held from 9:30 to 5. All of the wedding party accompanied the bride and groom to the depot and bade them adieu amid a shower of rice and ood wishes. Mr. and Mrs. Stansill ar rived in this city on the 6:05 train last a evening and were welcomed by a num 0ber of their friends.

In my last article [ called attention to the imoortanco of a proper selection of soil and plants for a protitable crop. I am aware that too much stress cannot be placed upon the consideration of these two points. Those who are care ful enough in or-her matters may utterly fail 1m raising protitable crops of tobae eo and become discouraged, because they were heedless of these two de- I mands as a starting point to success. My observation of the soil of this county with my former experience as a planter convince me of the certainty of its be ing made a profitable business here. Already in the short experience of those who have started the production of the crop in the county we have am ple evidence of its value as a money crop. Only those succeed, however who Lzo into it with a mind to master its pro duction by that attention to details which is absolutely necessary. Almost all other crops will bear neglect and in difference to their needs in crucial periods and produce a small return to the farmer, if by no means a profitable one. but tobacco raising must be a suc cess or it is generally worse than a fail ure. Leaving these points which have g been barely hinted at in the former. discussion. I now advance to the ques tion of PREPARATION OF THE SOIL. h MANURING AND PLANTING THE CROP. n In this climate the farmer will begin to house the bottom lea;-es of his crop S within 60 or 70 days from the time of transplanting. It is evident that the hasty growth of the crop will require great skill in proper preParation of the soil and nourishment applied to cause a development in quality and quantity that will amply reward the producer. The soil should be deeply fallowed in the late fall or early winter so that it may get the benefit of winter freezes if there should be any and to oermit the bumus supplied from the former year's growth to decay and become fully as simulated in the soil. Th s, too, is prof Itable in destroving the cut-worm which :ften proves so troublesome to the early ;etting. But this is by n) me.'ns a suf [leient preparation for planting the trop. Just before the pl.nts are reaay ,o be set and the season has come for metting the plants. the soil should again De broken deeply and thoroughly pul verized. Do this if possible so that a packing rain shall not fall on the land wfore you are ready to insert the plants. You are now ready to run the furrows 'or the manure, which shculd always be )ut in drill for best result Experience ias taught the farmers of the tobacco fc ;ections, that much profitable time and abor may be saved in handling the crop -y thoughtful ARRANGEY.MENT OF THE .OWS FOR PLANTING THE CROP. The ordinary distance between tobac .o rows should be four (4) feet. Then ra ,he plants should be set upon patted paces about 3 feet apart in the drill. f there was nothing more to consider, bi his information would be all that is iecessary. But the tobacco raiser has bund that one of his difficult problems of s handling the crop after it is made. How to facilitate handling it from the ield to the barn so as to save labor and )reserve the leaves from ruinous bruises s a question of much interest to the ex- c )erienced producer. Much has been done in solving this liMculty. If every fifth space between ows is made six feet insteld of four as th s the prevailing rule, this wide space nay be used in housing the: crop to sav ng advantage by letting a gentle horse )ull a tobacco truck, which is made for he business, along this row just oppo ite two primers who will carry two ows each, thus without loss of time and xtra laborers, laying their leaves care ully on the truck which keep just .long between them. An extra truck an be ready to supply the olace of this vhile it is drawn to the place of hous ng. In this manner two hands will savej lmost as much tobacco in the same ength of time as a half do2en would in he old way. You would do well to give - his matter consideration. When the drill has been opened and3 he manure put in let one furrow bef ,brown on it to prot-ect it from them veather, and when ready t->insert the >lants, if rain has fallen since the ma mnre was drilled-in, run two furrows to ist the soil over the manure before set ing the plant. The quick growth of the crop and the 1uality wanted will indicate to the rrower that it will take a larger quali y of manure than most crops to make a rofitable crop of tobacco.O Then you need a fertilizer that will rive body to the plant and h Lsten a uni orm growth and maturity of the plant. E'he soil and climate will have to large y help the planter in arriving at a sat sfactory solution of this problem, gen- p ~rally about 1,000 pounds of "special obacco fertilizers" wvill be the proper uantity to use when commercial fertil zer is used exclusively. T'ils is often he best where lying-out land is used i or the crop. In my next I will discuss tile planting )f the stalk and the cultivation of the ~ron. C. W. BLANCHARD.
