The recent requirement of the govern
iment relating to classitication of the
mails, weighing, etc., which was men
tioned in our last issue, is an enormous
amount of additional labor, and very
perplexing; the patrons of the office
would appreciate the amount of labor
entailed if they understood it, and they
would make it their business to have
their mail in the ofiee early.
Charlie Graham whose home is at
Pinewood is serving a three year sen
tence in the penitentiary, convicted
last Jnne in Sumter of the charge of
larceny of a bicycle. The boy, we are I
told, was convicted upon circumstantial
evidence, and some think him not I
guilty. Governor Blease has been asked
to grant the boy a parole, and given a I
chance to make a man of himself. Gra

on that day. The people of that sec
tion, when they have a picnic or any
other kind of a social gathering, it is
something to miss when you are pre
vented from attending.
One of the members of the Italian
band that was here with the last carni
val company, is in jail in Bennettsville E
for the murder of a fellow member of
the band. The two Italians had a quar- r
rel when one struck the other over the
head with a tent stick, and brought on
concussion of the braia from which he
died. The assailant fled but was cap
tured at Hamlet, taken to McColl where
the tragedy occurred. thence to Ben
nettsville where he was lodged in jail,
to be tried in the sessions court.
The itinerant liquor merchants of this
town who use the store lots to vend their

authorities, as well as the county au

what is more, they are not going to de
pend upon hired detectives to bring the
violators to justice; there are a plenty
of men right in Manning who will put
their stamp of disapproval upon these
perambulating whiskey venders, and1,
when they bring the parties to the at

The postal authorities are giving their
attention now to the public roads and
threaten to discontinue rural routes if
the local authorities do not have the
ubile roads in good condition; the
flocking of the roads with gates is an
other source of comp!aint on the part
of the government. It would not sur
pise us in the least for the mail routes
to be discontinued wherever those hav- I
ing gates across the roads persist in I
keephin them there. The matter has
rducea itself down to a question be- I
tween keeping the gates across the (
road or losing the convenience of the J
mail service. The people interested I
can take their choice.

The usually peaceable town of Greelv
vylle had its serenity disturbed last
Monday by jan altercation between two 1
prominent citizens. The report here is
that Mr. M. D. DeLorme sold to Mr. E.
B. Rhodus a lot in the town of Greely
ville with certain verbal conditions,
that a dispute arose between them about
the conditions, when DeIorme called -
Rhodus a liar, and Rhodus struck him.
DeLorme drew his pistol and shot
Rhodus several times but only one ballC
took effect, this one striking Rhodus I
near the groin. The wound is painful
but is not considered very serious. The
news of this trouble is a great surprisei
to people here who know Rhodus, and
esteem him very highly for character

Doctor Wilson called to see him. Julius
Ridgeway came to Manning Satur

Col. Brailsford's Suggestions.
I I noticed in the last two issues of The I
I Times that the Sons of Veterans har-e fed
5 organized for the avowed purpose of the
building a monument to the heroic dead out
- of Clarendon. Having waited over forty ere
years for the Daughters of the Veter- wel
ans of this county to do this patriotic R.
and most comme'ndable work and they Wi
not showing the least sign by word or prE
deed of any intention of ever doing it, ide
the Sons felt a great desire to erect son
this monument while the few remain- $5,(
ing veterans of this county were still per
above the daisies; so they have taken que
hold with a vim and placed men upon I and
the committee. men of great energy rec
and determination, and we feel that mit
the matter is going to steadily move to poi
an early finish. Clarendon has gained in
an unenviable notoriety through this I noti
long delayed monument. Her women tow
were criticised for not organizing cor
chapters of the Daughters of the Con- som
federacy when they were being formed shil
in every county of the late Confederacy. app
With four chapters in this county, lo-- mit
cated at Manning, Summerton. Pine- app
wood and Paxville the shaft would com
have] pointed skyward many. many T
years ago. When the yonng men of cus,
Clarendon have completed this work it mot
will stand without a paralell, for of all met
the thousands of monuments erected in proi
the confines of the Confederacy not one add
was designed and built by the Sons of T
Confederate Veterans save this lone mit!
Clarendon monument. This is notoriety org
number two. Having crossed the and
Rubican and burnt their bridges be- ent<
hind them it is to be hoped that these rats
fearless young men will not go about F
pleading and begging the girls to help Epp
them with fairs, concerts and tableaux. Ci
When we are through cultivating the Tis'
crops put out a committee of three to F:
be appointed for each township, furn- Scal
ished with a small book, every leaf of SI
which is a note in which the party giv- Fel
ing will insert amount contributed C
when due, dateof contribution and sign esn(
his name. I would suggest making the S1
notes payable 15th of October next. Jeff
With cotton probably 14 cents and seed S
50 cents per bushel who would be so Day
picayunish as to give less than'tive dol- M
lars. I hope the committee will not Hal,
side step the collection by attempting SI
any entertainments. Go to the men of Rhc
Clarendon in a direct and manly way, Bi
they are with you and know that you wor
have adopted this way alone to get the MJ
means of building the monument and Cor
the total offerings of the county will P
amaze you. Day

The beautiful home of Mr. C. C. ris.
Thames, of Silver. S. C., was the scene S:
of one of the prettiest home weddings Mlc
it has ever been our pleasure to chron- S"
icle on the evening of April 26th, when E K
Rev. Fenis Middleton Cannon, of Ches- TI
terlield, and Edith Blanche Thames, of and
Silver, were united in marriage by Rev. TI
David Hucks, of Pinewood, S. C. ing
The day was ideal in its beauty and the
never did the lovely landscapes of Silver a m,
touched and painted by the soft glory the
of a declining sun, look more charming, a cr
as if prophetic of the life of the h-apov
two, whose approaching marriage had
been tne topic of the day.
The ball and parlors were beautifully T
I decorated with fern smilax, the color
seneme, green and white. fully devel- jou
oped in every artistic detail.
Precisely at 4 p. m. the soft strains gra
of Mendelsohn's. wedding mareb, skill -g
fully rendered by Mrs. W. H. Cannon, Pin
of Silver, S. C., announced the advent mer
of the bride who, beautiful in a going Knc
away suit of blue and gray, appeared the
leaning on the arm of her brother, Mr.d
J. Walter Thames, of Sumter, while dra
Mlr. R L. Thames, also a brother of the ''
brcde, acted as escort for the groom, N
both meeting in the center of the room, N
and reponingto the solemn service N

The tableau was perfect in its beauty, N
not only' the queenly loveliness of the
fair bride, but many dark-eyed South- E

from this and surrounding country en- Sch
hancing the fairy scene.
After the ceremony delicious refresh -
Iments were served. Mesdames J3. F. N

over the table. An hour sped by in*
happy social enjoyment when suddenly y
was heard the whistle of the train N
which was to bear the happy and for
tunate husband and fair bride to their
distant home in Chesterield, S. C , and
amid showers of rice and tender advices N
they boarded the traiti, taking a short Nev
wedding tour to the old city-by-the-sea J
before going on to their home in Ches- ~
terfield, where they will be at home to
their friends after the 29th-.

ients of many beautiful presents whi-ch ~
testified to the esteem in which they are N
held by their many friends. N
