Charleston should build a monument to F. W. Wagener when he dies. He is worth more to that city than a cow pen full of the blue blooded aristocrats. Senator Tillman has Signified his intents: - ? tion of speaking at Manning in Clarendon county to-morrow (Friday.) The reason is that a few months ago the Senator and State Senator Louis Appelt had a warm controversy through the columns of The Manning Times, Mr. Appelt's paper, in the course of which the old charges of whiskey rebates, free vegetables, groceries, furniture, etc., from the State penitentiary were rehearsed by Appelt. Instead of replying to the charges Tillman said he would come to Manning and speak and reply to the charges if the people would invite him. Accordingly an invitation was drawn up by those who oppose Appelt and numerously signed. The time of Tillman's visit is significant, and as Appelt will no doubt stand for re-election this summer as State Senator from : Clarendon, a warm time in that county IS?; . . may be expected, as the editor-senator is something of a politician himself. Tillman to Speak at Manning. Manning, April 20.?A great deal of interest among people throughout the I county is being taken concerning Senator Tillman's coming to Manning next Friday, 2oth inst. The telegram which was received from the Senator announced that he would speak at 11 o'clock, and the indications are that by that hour there will be several hundred of the sturdy farmers from this and other counties assembled to hear "Ben" once more. The Senator has not spoken in Clarendon since 1894, and this was always considered one of his strong counties. Some people believe that the political complexion of the county has been materially changed, but this correspondent dissents from any such opinion, and believes that the reason the farmers and masses are not heard to speak much of Tillman is because Tillman has not been here, and that when , Ben "the original," the same Ben who carried the storm all his own way in 1890 and '92, mounts the stand and begins to tell the "bovs" about the many coattail . swingers he pulled into office and how many of tliem have gone back on him, it is going to be found that he possesses the same influence over a farmer audience as he did in times of yore. My opinion is ' that a majority of the voters in this county do not believe the charges of corruption j|C* ' that have lately and so strongly been made against the Senator, and they are anxious to hear what defense he proposes to put up and will give him a hearty re* ception and hearing. It is a common thing to hear the remark made that "Tillman is a Democrat.7 That of itself is a very innocent statement, but when ex^ amined it has a significance. The Senator is to arrive here on the train from Columbia on Monday afterglpt: - noon and will be met at the depot by a -^committee of admirers and given, a.-reit; _ ception"at the Central hotel ihat night at which a chosen number is to be invited. A large stand capaDie ot seating irom ou to 75 persons will be erected on the shady court house square, and it is suggested ifckt . that the same will be decorated with pitchfork ornaments. His reception committee is to be composed of 50 members from * different parts of the county and it is not at all improbable that there will be some warm talk indulged in from the stand. All in all this meeting may have a very important significance in its bearing upon the State campaign this summer. At any rate so far as Clarendon is concern - ed next Friday formally opensjhe ball. 1 A Competition in Prayer. Maine furnishes a story that illustrates . the grotesque character of some prayers which are offered in entire good faith. Some time ago an earnest Prohibitionist came unawares on a lone fisherman, who : happened at the moment to be quietly drinking something from a black bottle. He was so much scandalized by the sight that at the prayer meeting that evening * he referred to the incident as follows: ' "Oh, Lord, we ask Thee to turn from his - evil ways the poor besotted sinner I seen this afternoon swigging rum from a black bottle, against the peace and good order of the State." It so happened that the sinner referred to was present at the meeting and at the conclusion of the prayer arose and offered the following petition : "Oh, Lord, Thou knowest that when the brother seen me I was not drinking rum, as I don't like it, but Scotch whiskey, which the doctor ordered me to take to keep away rheumatiz, and Thine be the glory forever. Amen." ' K An anecdote is narrated of a negro evangelical minister, who held night services in a chapel formerly used by the Anglical church. In a hymnal which had been left he found an old familiar hymn suitable for his sermon; but the Roman number CXIX, somewhat confused him, and he was embarrassed as to how to announce the hymn. As was the custom, he read the stanzas through, seeming still . confused. He then reread the first stanza, which did not seem to aid him in helping the congregation, now very much bewil- i w - -1 ? v A . i' l i i. * aereu. rrovmg reuouurauie, uesiraigmened himself up and seemed to grasp the situation at a glance and in a stentorian voice exclaimed: "Brethren, let us sing the Skeesix i hymn." ^ The post office at Wards, in Saluda j county, was robbed on Friday night.

What a great power is in his j hands may be inferred from the fact that the entire taxable property of this country is assessed at oniy seventeen billions. ( According to Congressman Jones, of "Washington, irrigation is a good thing, : * because it will make some arid Western lands worth fifty or more dollars an acre. And hence congress is asked to appropriate millions for irrigation. Fertilizers ? are a good thing and "a bountiful supply < of them on lands in the South would 1 make them worth much more. But con- I gress would laugh at a bill to provide free 1 fertilizers for farmers on worn out lands, i I Political (Jossip in Washington. W a mi i n gton , April 10.?South Carolina's Congressmen have been the recipients this year of many invitations to make commencement addresses at the various colleges and schools throughout the State. Kach member of the delegation lias been asked to make one or more addresses, but several have declined on tlie ground that stump speeches were more in their lines. Wiutbrop asked* Representative Scarborough to do the honors as her commencement orator this year, but unfortunately the date set, June IS, conflicted with another engagement at the eloquent speaker from Horry county and he was forced to decline. Mr. Scarborough will speak on the 2d of May of the closing exercises of the Union Academy, a well known school uear Dillon, Marion county, and on June 10 at the commencement of the Kingstree graded school. Representative Lever is to be the orator at the commencement exercises of the South Carolina Co-educatioual Institute at Edgetield, on June 4. It was not a great while when the young South Carolina member was himself a college student and thereby forced to undergo commencement orations. "I intend to put mv ex periences to good effect in my oration this year. I intend to remember that brevity is not only the soul of wit,* but an easy road to the good will of college students/' Mr. Lever will need little grooming to blossom forth as a commencement orator, after his experience in the House. Although a first-year man in Congress and the youngest member of that body, Mr. Lever has several times addressed the House on pending measures and each time has been given attention by members on both sides of the chamber. As a veteran debater in the House put it the other day, "That boy always says what he has to say in a few words, well chosen and strongly expressed, and then take his seat. There's many a member in the House and Senate could profit by following the Palmetto stripling in this respect." "Next to a stump speech, or a speech blistering the Republicans, there is nothing in the line of oratory so much to my liking as a commencement address. I always feel it a privilege to be invited to say the final word of God-speed to college students who are just embarkiug from their alma mater." This is the seutiment expressed by Representative Talbert as he opened his mail the other morning to find a number of letters requesting his services on commencement day. Col. Talbert, while a student at Due West Academy in ante-bellum days, established a reputation as a fiery speaker and debater, and since his election to Congress, a decade ago, many a pension shark has had occasion to testify to the justice of this reputation. Col. Talbert has already maue mree eugagetueuis iu ucn?ci wmmeucement addresses, at Fort Mill, York county, on May 2; at Ethe ridge, Saluda county, April 26, and at Williston College, May 27. Representative Latimer and the two Senators hope to be able to till several engagements to speak in the early part of June at the closing exercises of a number of schools. They cannot tell just yet what legislative duties may arise to interfere. THE SUMMER CAMPAIGN. But there will be a more strenuous task than making commencement addresses for many of the South Carolina delegation this year. With the Congressional and State elections coming off this fall, the summer brings little hope of recreation and rest for the members. "If I conld consult my own wishes," sighed Representative Johnson, "I would betake me to my home in Spartanburg and spend the whole summer there, free from the routine of Congressional life. But there is no telling what may turn up before Congress adjourns, for in the first place nobody seems to have any idea when Congress will let us out. Many of the members are getting just like boys waiting for school to close, only more iuipatieut. But instead of taking a holiday some aspirant for my seat in Congress may announce himself, and thereby force me to take a trip around my district, renewing old acquaintances and nailing up a paling here aud there on my fences. In that event mine will be a strenuous summer of it." Just now Mr. Johnson is thinking little about politics. He says that since The News aud Courier announced that he was to get a public building for Spartanburg he determined to "make good" the announcement, and he pays a daily visit to the room of the committee on public buildings and grounds to see that his public building bill has not lost its seat in the omnibus since the day previous. LATIMER FOR SENATOR. Representative Latimer, candidate for the Senate, seems anxious for the fray. He is an old campaigner and is one of the few men in politics who really enjoy this feature of the game. "I am iu shipshape for the race," says Mr. Latimer, "and I don't care how soon Congress adjourns. No, I am not preparing any campaign speeches. I never do, and yet I don't find any trouble in talking to the people; in fact I generally get my inspiration entirely from the crowd. I make it a rule to carry a few good jokes aboard, and they come in well for the seasoning of the facts which I make the basis of my speech." Mr. Latimer has recently returned from the State aud says he found things running smoothly relative to his race, and from present prospects his chances for success excellent. TALBERT FOR GOVERNOR. TKo OnKovnQfnrial lict will rwpivp <1 warm addition in Col. Talbert, who will make the race this summer. "The best place to spend the summer is on a farm, where you cau get all the buttermilk you want. But, inasmuch as I can't pass my summer that way, I intend to make a speciality of buttermilk in my race. I find a glass of buttermilk preserves your voice a great deal better than water when you are speaking, and, as I am booked to stump the State, I shall naturally be on the watchout to keep my voice in good trim." Col. Talbert's familiar voice will be missed in the House when lie leaves. He occupies a seat iu the last row on the Democratic side and in his efforts to gain the Speaker's attention he has been forced to use his voice rather roughly. Simultaneously with his shout, "Mr. Speaker!" "Uncle Jasp," as his colleagues call him, throws up both hands and gestures frantically to attract the Speaker's eye to that section of the House. And the Colonel generally succeeds in making himself heard on the floor when he has something to say. His friends claim that he will aiso be" heard from in a substantial way in the Gubernatorial race. "THE BABY" HOLDS HIS BOTTI.E. "They say I am to have opposition in my disrict, saidj the 'House Baby,' referring to his pastime for the summer, but I am hoping that before we are off all prospective opponents will have choked off their Congressional aspirations. But I shall not be averse to making the tour of my district again this summer. I am confident that the race cannot be warmer than that of last summer and I weathi .. . r i__ T * ? T I ereu umi one sai eiy. e p iu uaic i iiu>c only one avowed opponent, but rumor tells me there is a probability of several dark horses coming in later." SCAKBOKOUCH HAS NO KIVAI.S. Some time ago Mr. Scarborough made the rash assertion that he might not have iiny opposition this term and the following week he heard reports from all over liis district of probable candidates. As none of these has as yet materialized, however, Mr. Scarborough again ventures the assertion that, so far as he is aware, lie will not be opposed for Congress this year. Mr. Scarborough, who is now serving his first term in Congress, made his maiden speech a short while ago, taking for his subject the Crumpacker resolution. Mr. Scarborough's remarks made an excellent impression among Democrats and Republicans also, as they were lacking in rant and prejudice. COI.. ELLIOTT FOR THE SENATE. Col.

M. L. in News ' md Courier. Naming the Baby.

"I saw that name j iu a story once, and always wanted to try J it 011 a baby." "Oh," murmured the second grand- < mother, "that would never do. Let us ] call her 'Fanchon.'" "But don't you think 'Eltessa' is a pretty name? And so odd, too!" put in one of the aunts. 1 "Excuse me, ladies," ventured the poor 1 father, who sat near by, "but you seem * to forget that we are trying to find a name 1 for a human beiug, and not for a five-cent ( cigar."?Baltimore American.

Terrible Experience of a Hunter With an Indian Band. One of the most remarkable instances >f the escape of a white man from the :ndiaus was that of John Colter, a fanous hunter and trapper. On the day n question he and his companion were surrounded by 600 savage warriors. Che companion was instantly killed, md Colter was captured. His foes had 10 intention of saving his life, however. They wanted the sport of put:ing him to the torture or at least of jla.ving with him as a cat plays with a nouse. The chief asked him if he wild run. He said, "Not much." He was released and told to save his ife if he could. Colter darted away at high speed, md most of the 600 savages set off aft>r him. There was a plain before him six miles wide, bounded on the far side jy a river fringed with trees. Colter :iad always been famous as a runner, ind his practice now stood him in good stead. He made straight across the plain for the stream, and the yells of lis pursuers lent him wings. His foes aad removed every shred of clothing from his body, and the plain was covered with prickly pears, so that his unprotected feet were lacerated at every dride. Half way across the plain he glanced jack and saw that only a few Indians svere following him. Again he ran on ind soon realized that one of his pursuers was Hearing him. He redoubled tiis efforts, and blood gushed from his aostrils and flowed down over his breast. The fringe of trees was near, but a hasty backward look showed him the pursuing brave close upon him with spear raised. Moved by a sudden impulse, Colter stopped, turned and faced the savage with outstretched arms. The Indian was so taken aback at this unexpected movement that he dumbled and fell! This was Colter's ppportnnlty. He ran back, seized the spear and, pinning his antagonist to the ground, ran on. Other savages came on, fiercer than before at the death of their comrade, but Colter reached the trees, plunged into their midst end then into the river and swam to a pile of driftwood that bad lodged. H - dived beneath it and stuck his head up between two logs covered with smaller timbers and brush. The Indians came up and searched for several hours, but failed to find him. Again and again they walked over the driftwood. Luckily they did not fire it, as he feared they would. At last they went away. Then Colter swam out and fled through the forest. Seven days he went on, living on roots and berries, with no clothing, until at last he reached a trading post ou the Bighorn river. He never fully recovered from the effects of this terrible experience.?Youth's Companion. Ill* Bank Signature. A case for a handwriting expert was noticed at one of the downtown banks the other day. A treasurer of one of the many charitable organizations of this city had received a check to be devoted to that certain charity, and he was desirous of acknowledging it, but could not read the signature. He took the check to the bank on which it was drawn and questioned one of the clerks as to the signature and was told that It was genuine, but could not get the desired information. It was next taken to the paying teller, who also declared that it was genuine, but even he could cot make out who it was and had to consult the card catalogue.
