Ever' -thing was lost except a little furnitur they managed to save from the kitchei Bandits boarded a train at Warren ville near Aiken last night, knocked down the express messenger, threw him into an empty chest, locked him in it and then robbed the car, securing about $200. The train usually carries a large amount of money. Mrs. Mattie Mathis, Summerton, on last Thursday morning, while standing near a fire, had her skirt to ignite, and a considerable portion of the dress was burning when discovered by another lady present. Serious injury was only prevented by the timely tearin off of the dress. Commissioner Breedin has a st-ate ment in this issue showing how he man aged the winding up of the affairs of the dispensary. The statement shows a much less deficit than the most sanguine had hoped for, and if it is correct Mr. Breedin has certainly saved to the tax payers a considerable sum of money. The discussion in the columns of THE TmES between Rev. C. W. Blanchard and Professor Albert New is making students of biblical history out t of many of our readers. The letters of these scholarly gentlemen are valuable additions to literature, and are being g appreciated far beyond our expecta tions. It is the purpose of THE TimES man agement to get out a considerable amount of reading matter next week, and it would beg those who would send matter for publication to send it as early as practicable-this week if pos sible. Advertising changes must not come in later than Saturday noon, and any new advertisements we would like to lave them in befote Saturday. The Pine Grove graded school clos ing begins Sunday with a sermon by Rev. E. P. Hutsou. Monday evening Lieutenant Governor McLeod sill de- 1 liver the annual address, and on Tues day a picnic. TEE TDIES editor ac knowledges a cordial invitation tp be pressut on these several occasions, and would be pleased to d,.' so. but he will be compelled to forego the pleasure on account of other engagements. In nearly all cities and towns the authorities save the reputation of their J towns by requiring decent public backs. Manning gives no attentiou to such things, and any old rattle-trap is 9 permitted to serve the public as com- a mon carriers. When the train con taining a number of the delegates to d the District-Cdnference arrived, sev eral of the preachers made humorous criticisms of the busses and hacks that I were at the depot to convey passengers. We direct the attention of our read- s ers to the page advertisement of Davis ii & Thames, who have put on a special ( Isale under the direction of '-The Inter- r national Collection Agency.' These p young men are desirious to turn their ( stock into cash to make preparation for T the purchase of fallgoods, and to do so d ,at this season of the year special induce- 1 nents zaust be made. Therefore they S have put on this special sale, and prom- I ise the trading public rare bargains. b Come in and take advantage of the of ferings % 0 The public school examination for v wrhite teachers took place last Saturday. I The following were the applicants: a M isses Pearl Wheeler. Juanita Boykin e and Estelle Gibbons, New Zion. Miss e orina Baird and Mr. S. E.

( Several post masters and rural car riers have informed us that every now nd then a subscriber of THE THfES. complains of the paper not being dehiv ered to them and blame them for it. We thought we had made this matter so plain there was absolutely no chance toe beisunderstood. The postal regula tions will not permit a weekly newspa- ' pers to carr'y delinquents more than onea year, and we have time and again call ed attention-to that reqirement. There-c fore when a subscription is past due one year we are compelled to discontinue it.t The failure to receive THE TIMES then is not the fault of the postmasters or 1 the carriers, it is entirely with the sub scriber. The day for running a newspa per for several years withoat paying for it is past. Look at the label on your paper it tells you the date you have paid to, and if you want the paper con-t tinued, and you should, because we make every effort to give you a good paper, ten send us the money before the time expires. THE TINES does not want toj lose one subscriber, and when it cuts a name off of its subscription list, it is be cause it is forced to do so by the United< States postal regulations.] The Celebrated Carroll Spoke. 1 The colored graded school finished its commencement exercises last evening. Besides having a well sel qcted program, and declamations which, wre very cred itable indeed, Rev. Richard Carroll of Columbia, delivered an address, which was highly entertaining and instruc tive, and it was also teeming with sound and wholesome advice.. The speaker has done much for the advancement of his race, and his views on the race question are so broad and statesmanlike tbat the following of his leadership will be the salvation of a race that has been chas ing after false gods whose only care for them was to enrich themselves, but not so with Carroll. He has demonstrated his devotion to his people by the many and constant sacrifices he has made for them. He is a man of eloquent tongue, forceful expression, a student of men and affairs, and withal he enjoys the es teem and confidence of the business and professional men throughout the State. Those who heard his-address last even ing, among whom were a number of whites, were highly pleased. It was the writers intention to be present but cir cumstances prevented. If every town in South Carolina had a Carroll the two races would need have no anxiety of there ever being any frictios between them. Carroll teaches his people the doctrine of merit, that which they mer t will be accorded them. Quartirly Conference. The cquarterly conference of the Man ning Methodist church took place Sat urday, and the following resolution was* adopt-ed: Resolved, that we heartily approve bf the action of the Sumter District Con ference in agreeing to continue the sun port of a missionary in Cuba, and pledge Manning church to contribute as much heretofore and more if necessary. - Sunday Rev.

The laymen held a meeting in the in erest of the Laymen's Missionary Move. nent and selected Charlton DuRant as heir District leader, to sudceed Judge L 0. Piardy, who wrote declining re lection. There were several notable features 1t this Conference, two of which deserve nore than passing mention. The Dis rit decided, enthusiastically, to retaim ,missionary in the Cuban field, and it s also probable that, under the leader ;hip of the District Leader, enough Funds will be raised to employ a native elper in that field. Mr. J. W. McLeod, of the Manning ~hurch, made an offer through Rev. W. B.. Wharton, the-Superintendent of the pworth Orphanage, that he would con ribute dollar for dollar in any sum up o one thousand dollars, that would be ~ubscribed by this District Conference. While it is unfortunate that the full .imit was not subscribed, a goodly sun: was raised. It is not surprising, however thata istrict Conference held at Manning s inspired to undertake and to do great ~hings. The membership at this church tre themselves filled with an enthusiasm ,hat is both infectious and contagious, md under the influence the Conference operated The reports from the various charges ndicated progress and an upward ten ency. All mission assessments, Foreign md Domestic, were paid by the charges .n this District by the first of April. )mhei claims have been fairly well met, ad the church is growing in number mnd interest.

Bucken's Arnica Salve The Det Salve In The World. TAKES HIS OWN LIFE. Maj. H. Frank-Wilson of Sumter Killed Him self. Maj. E. Frank -Wilson, master in equity of Sumter County, committed suicide at 8-30 o'clock Tuesday morning in his office .in the court house, by shoot ing himself in the right temple with a 44-calibre revolver, death being practi cally instantaneous. A moment before he killed himself he had been talking with his aged father, Mr. B. F. Wilson, of Mayesville, and leaving him seated in the large office went into the fireproof record vault, closing the door after him, and immediately shot himself. The re port of the pistol startled Mr. B. F. Wilson, who ran to the vault but found the door locked. He then hastened out into the corridor and called Clerk of Court L. L Parrott and Judge of Pro bate T. E. Richardson, telling them that he feared his son had kiiled himself. The vault door was opened as quickly as possible, and Maj. Wilson was found ly ing dead on the floor, with a wound in the right side of his head and a pistol on.the floor beside him. That the sui cide was a deliberate act. was indicated by the fact that Maj. Wilson had remov ed his hat, placing it on a table and on top of the hat laid his spectacles which he wore habitually. Dr. J. A. Mood, who was Maj. Wil son's physician was summoned and Cor oner Flowers notified and after they ar rived and viewed the body it was re moved to the Craig Furniture Co.'s un dertaking department to be prepared for burial. The inquest was held at the Craiz Furniture Co., as soon as a jury couil be sumroned. The only witnesses ex amined were Dr. J. A. Mood, Mr. T. E. Richardson and Mr. L. L Parrott. Dr. Mood described the wound and stated that death was instantaneous. Messrs. Parrott and Richardson tes tified to being called to Maj. Wilson's office by his father, Mr. B. F. Wilson, and as to their opening the vault door and finding Maj. Wilson dead on the floor. Mr. B. F. Wilson who is in his seventy-ninth year, was completely un strung by the terrible tragedy, was too greatly prostrated to appear at the in quest and it was not thought necessary to adjourn the inquest until he was able to testify. The jury deliberated only a few minutes and rendered a verdict that the deceased came to his death from a pistol shot wound inflicted by his own hand. There is no known motive for the sui cide, and no explanation except that Maj. Wilson had been in ill health for the past few years and recently had been in a depressed and melancholy state of mind. During the past few days he had been more nervous and depress ed than usual, but yesterday he went to Marion on legal business, and his father and Col. R. D. Lee, who accompanied him, did, not observe anything strange in his conduct, nor did he appear excit ed this morning. But in the light'of the sad occurrence this morning several in cidents in his conduct recently, which were not regarded seriously at the time, indicate that he has been mentally un balanced it times for weeks, or perhaps longer. The tragic end of Maj. Wilson was a terrible shock to the entire community and has saddened the hearts of hun dreds. For more than a quarter of a cetury he ,has been a resident of this city and oncof Sumter's most prominent and popular citizens. Endowed by na ture with a bright mind, which he had cultivated by wide reading and study he was fitted to be a leader in any commun ity in which he resided. It is difficult alost impossible-to write of'him as we wish, in the present circumstances -his taking o-f beinig soi sudden, so un expected and so inexpressibly sad. He will be missed, and he will be remem bered for what he was and not for the tragic end that was his fate.. He is survived by his father, three brothers, Rev.- B. F. Wilson, of Ear risonburg, Va., Mr. Flynn Wilsbn, of Texas, and -Mr. Rradley Wilson. of Mayesville; three sisters. Mrs. H. L. Shaw, of Fountain, S. C., Mrs. Price and Miss Rebecca Wilson, both mission aries in China.-Samter Item, May 18. Jury List.
