Last Thursday afternoon about four 'clock an alarm of fire was sent in rom the Manning Electric plant, when t was discovered to be burning. The ire department responded promptly ,nd through their hard work, the ilant was saved with a very small dam .ge. Undoubtly the new auto truck which has only been in service a few eeks, has proven to be one of the best nvestments our city has ever made. If his fire had gained two or three more ninutes headway, Mr. Harvin the >wner of this property, would have >een several thousand dollars losser, )ut within three and a half minutes rom the time the alarm was sent in, here were three streams of water )laying on the fire, due absolutely to the peed of the truck. The boys deserve nuch credit for the waty they handled his fire, in fact, the writer was told >y a gentleman from Atlanta, that the ,ompany did as well as a paid city de >artment, which is a very high com liment. Civic Leaga: Meeting. At a meeting of the civic league, ield March 27th, the question of con ,inuing the work of the up-keep of the ,emetery was brought to the atten ,io of the thirteen members present. end it was unanimously decided to dis ontinue their work, advising the Cem ,tery Association of this decision. During the visit of Miss Maud Van 3uren, the civic expert who visited he league on March 20-21, many ques. ions were asked by her in regard to he league organization, its works, etc. he expressed surprise at the idea of a ivic league undertaking Cemetery rork, and brought out the fact that she ad never heard of any civic league ending the effort in this direction. This expression, coming as it did rom one who had had such wid - ex >erience in civic welfare strengt Lnea he position that had already been aken by some of the members, that he time had come for the selection of nly such work as would be in line vith other civic leagues. In introducing this subject for dis :ussion at the league meeting, March |th, just one week after Miss Van 3uren's visit, the Vice-President who iroght the matter up referred es >ecially to Miss Van Buren's remarks in the subject, and the force of this argument was so conclusive as to in luce many who were deeply attached o the work at the Cemetery to vote or its discontinuance. The league feels that the public gen rally, and especially those members rho have been unable to attend meet ngs, should be informed that the ac ,ion of the league in regard to this natter was entirely spontaneous, no nfluence other than the one expressed ibove being brought to bear upon the nembers in the step taken by them, l other reports to the Cemetery be ng entirely unreasonable. Following the action of the league, t a meeting held on Aprii 17th at rhich 21 members were present, the ollowing Resolution was offered and manimously adopted: Resolution: Resolved, that the civic eague extend to Mrs. Joseph Rigbyi nd her Committee, a vote of thanks or the efficient work done at the Cemn ~tery. By a vote of 15 to 3 the following Res lution was adopted:t Resolution: Resolved that in view ofi he excellent work accomplished at thei Demetery by the Cemetery Committee< if the civic league, the league recoin nends that said Committee be appoint d by the Cemetery Association to con-] inue the work. The league was advised at its meet-< ng, through a letter received from the ~resident, Mrs. W. C. Davis, of the t doption of a Resolution by the Ceme ery Association as follows: . C Resolution: Resolved, that the Man-t ing Cemetery Association hereby I enders to the civic league, and itsd emetery Committees, our great ap reciation for the excellent work done y them since they have had in charge . he Cemetery work This work was undertaken aboutt our years ago by the league, and hast >een successfully carried on throught he medium of a Cemetery Committee, ppoitzd e~ch year from the member hip by the President.c The league desires to thank the pub ic generally who have respended to allt ails made upon them for the further-c .ce of this work, for it is due largely I o the generosity of the citizens of thei own that the work has been made pos-1 ible, as well as to the untiring efforts *f tnose who have so freely given of heir time and attention.

In reproducing articles from our old lies of years ago, we will from time to ime-print matters varying from hap )y and pleasant recollections to sad lays that have gone. Below we repro luce the death of Cot T:. Pressley Bar on of Manning, wbo was one of the nost prominent citizens Clarendon ounty has ever known. AT REST. "Tweive times the iron tongue of ime" sounded at midnight of Sunday, 2nd inst.. and before its lingering notes had died away the immortal soul )f Benjamin Pressley Barron had pass )d into the great beyond from wheoce 20 traveller returns. His death was 20t expected, although he had been omplainiog for several days, but his riends did not regard him seriously ill de was at his office last Thursday and tttended to his business as usual, on hat same day he was taken sick and 20t until Sunday afternoon did his con lition become alarming, all that med cal skl1 and tender and affectionate ttention could do, was done. and at idnight he breathed his last. The ext morning his name went from lip :o lip in whispered reverential tones, he town was saddened in the loss of >ne of the best citizens. Col. Barron was a friend to mankind, is heart was tender and true and no :ne was turned away from him. He will be missed by his large circle of acquaintances an] many friends throughout the State. His family has lost a devoted husband and loving [ather, whose presence made home su premely happy, his church and his loages-Masonic and Knights of Pyth ias-a faithful supporter. his neighbors i kind and courteous friend, whose warm heart and cordial grasp always :ave ther sincere welcome-all will miss hint and mourn his demise. "Who is the grim visitant that comes :o our d velling place?" His mien is inister, his counternance forbid ling, his eyes are sad and somber, his ouch is cold. At his approach our lowers lose their fragrance. the air its reshness, our skies their brilliancy. He Comes atnd our happy laughter is ,hanged into inconsolable tears, he tomes and our joyous apparel is cast side--"we clothe us in the garb of rrief." He wears the mantle of de ;truction, his glance is that of the.con luorer, his lips are silent. And yet to some he appears with the gladsome ook of an expectant lover, to some he appears as the harbinger of rest. as he angel of charity, he brings a gift ;he Deace of God which passeth all an lerstanding. It is death. It is death, incontrollable, insatiable, and inexora )le. who has taken from among us a I nark that has shone earnest and stead 'ast as a beam light of example to ,hose who love the precepts of manli ess and honor, ano as a pillar of minous c:oud to those who love them 2ot. The thought is sad, indeed, that we hall never again behold that genial, iandsome face, that look of friendly vecome, that never again we shall tasp his hand whose kindly pressure >estowed the sincerity of his character. Humbly we pay this tribute to his nemory. He lived a life of usefulness, >f honorable distinction, a Prince tong men, he bequeathed to those he eft behind a precious legacy of good orks and a record of high and noble oughts and achievement. He sleeps 'be sleep of the just. How true it is "The last end )f the good man is peace! How calm his exit. sight dews fall not more gently to the ground. or weary, worn-out winds expire so soft." Benjamin Pressley Barran was born n York county, this State. 4th of May 840. He attenoded Furman University -Xbout the year 18,59 he moved to illiamsburg county and engaged in chool teaching at Indiantown. When ,he civil war broke out he assisted n raising among the first co anies to go to the front and was elect d a licoutenant under James McCutch ~on, captain. He remained in the ser rice until captured in battle, and in .864 he was sent to Elmir'a prison, where he was held until the cessation if hostilities. While in Elmira prison iis gentlemanly demeanor attracted he attention of the oflicers in charge nd they g~ave him an important cler al position at theadquarters. His' du is were so well and intelligently per ormed that when it came time for his tischarge they gave hing up, relunetly .nd the offcer in charge in saying ood-bye put a roll of greenbacks into is haud and would not receive a re usl. Lieutenant Barron had won he respect of his captors to such an ex ent that when he was about to leave he prison at his request Mr Junius E sctt then of Williamsburg, now of ianning, was given the work at head uarters. Rett e'ning from the north, he went o Kingstree and entered the law offi;:e f the late Col. John G. Pressley, later re removed to Manning and engaged the practice of his profession, L.1 ays keeping an office open in King tree. where he had a large clientage. Lieutentant Barron was married wice. In early life be married Miss \melia Snowden, one of Williams urg's fairest daughters. She died in Ianning, uo children blessed this un on. Subsequently he married M1iss Al ce Witherspoon, who survives him, he was a daughter of the late Dr. Samuel Witherspoon, a physician of vide repute. This union was blessed ,vith a large and interesting famiiy of :hildren. During our political trials Mr. Bar 'on took an active part, often going >it to meet the opposite party and de nanding a division of time. He was a ocible and eloquent speaker and his ervices to the Democratic party will onie be remembered- He consented n low his name to be used for the egsature and he served in that body n.e term, and would not stand for re rletion upon the ground that his pro eson to which lhe was devoted need d his attention. Mr. Barron always -njoyed a tine practice and he was re ~arded one of the best commercial awers in this section of the State. e belonged to the Presbyterian urci, was a met ber' af St. Peters odge A. F. M., and Damon Lodge inichts of Pythias, a man of fine phy ique, handsome features, attractive nanner and always a gentleman. The funeral took place yesterday. 'he Przesoyterian church was crowded w~th fr-lends to pay the last sad rites to beloved citizen.. Rev. James Mc )owell, the pastor, assisted by Revs. V. H. Hodges of the Methodist church .nd J. 0. Gough of the Baptist church, onducted the services, which was more han impressive, and the entire con 'regation seemed to drink the words F counsel as they fe'll from the lips of (ds s-'rvants. The deceased's pastor ras much affected, and as he alluded i the remains in the casket before tm. covered with beautiful floral ributes, his voice grew husky and ears stole down his cheek- The con 'egation understood the cause of that uskv voice and those tear-dimmed eyes The casket was borne into the church y the following active pallbearers: E C. Dic'kson, J. L. Wells, J. WV. ~ib. W. C. Dullant, WV. E. Burgess, . B. ILor'ca. A. J1. White and A. T. ~vat. precedled by Major WV F. B lanesworth, lHon- Josepn F. Rhame, ljr' C. S. Land. J. E.

I had ter r rible headaches, and pains In my back, etc. It seemed as i I would die, I suffered so. At t last, I decided to try Cardul, the woman's tonic, and it helped me right away. The full treatment nor only helped me, but it cured me." - J TAKE Cardul The Woman's Tonic Cardud helps women In time of greatest need, because It contains ingredients which act specifically, yet gently, on the weakened womanly organs. So, if you feel discouraged, blue, out-of-sorts, unable to 4 do your household work, on account of your condition, stop worrying and give Cardui a trial. It has helped thousands of women -why not you? Try Cardui. E-71 Honor Roll-Manning Graded School.
