nesday, February 1 , - 1902
e are pleased to see that
ident Lyles of the Fairfield
'cultural Society has issued a
for a meeting of the Fair
Id Agricultural Society. We
trust that at this meeting the
necessary steps will be taken to
hold the county fair this year.
A bill is before the legislature
providing for the consolidation
of several of the smaller railroad
systems in the State and giving
the Southern the privilege to
lease them. We can see no ob
jection to such a coisolidation
provided it is effected in such a
way that rates can not be raised
and that better accomrmodations
can be had.
This is President's Day at the
Charleston exposition, but Presi
dent Roosevelt can not be there
as he is at the bedside of his son
Theodore whose condition at the
time of the latest reports was
very critical. While the presi
dent's failure to attend at this
time will be greatly deplored, es
pecially by a large number who
had already gone on so as to be
at the exposition while he was
there, yet all greatly sympathize
with him in the providential in
terference that keeps him back.
It is hoped that he will yet be
able to attend the exposition.
The secret 9f the unconstitu
tionality of so many of South
Carolina's laws is out at last. A
coon has been found in the State
house, and its tracks have even
been seen in the engrossing de
partment, where iti chief delight
seems to be the scratching out
the constitutional element in all
bills of importance. It shows its
wisdom in overlooking such in
significant bills as have to do
with lheu-scratching, for with
these left out the senators would
have nothing to scratch on~
af~heabout. BDtter kill t)

According to a hair-splitting
ruling of that absolute Monarch,
Mr. Madden, of the postoflice de
partment at Washington there is
such a great difference between
a paper marked "extra" and one
marked "supplement" that the
former enjoys all the privileges
of second class mail while the
latter goes as regular printed
matter at a cent for every two
ounces. In accordance with this9
arbitrary ruling the Newberry
Herald and News' "extra" was
admitted to the mail while the
Observer's "supplement". was de
barred from the second class
privilege. This incident caused
the latter paper to make a seve
criticism of the p ostoffice autho ri
ties, whose part was taken up
by the former paper. This began
a controversy that was~ ended by
blows between editors Aull and
Wallace last Saturday evening.

The Box Paity at Mr. J. L
Cauthen's catme off according to
program. The guests begain to
arrive before suudown an.l con
tinued to come in until 9 o'clock.
There was only standing room
for the crowd. Miss Sallie Ruif
and Miss Adalaid Brooks enter
tained the crowd with delightful
m-usic on the guitar and Mr.
George Ruff and Mr. Pope Brooks
made some fine music on their
harps. There was a disappoint
ment in the violinists not getting
there. The supper was furnished
in a novel way-in boxes arranged
for two. The ladies' names were
placed on the boxes, with (upli
care numbers to correspond. The
gentlemen paid a quarter for the
supper. So there we6 many
surprises when the boxes were
disposed of. There being no
table arrangements, everyone had
to seek their own convenience
and they were eating all over the
house. There was also a guess
ing contest and fortune telling.
A young lady impersonated a
queen, who was Miss Jennie Lee
Gibson. There were nineteen
proper guesses out of twenty-six.
The prize was a very nice cake,
very beautifully dressed, which
was cut up and passed to the
successful guessers. Miss Sallie
Ruff impersonated Madam Jabelle
in the department of fortunes.
She was very highly compli
mented on her peculiar fitness
for the occasion. The proceeds
amounted to fifteen dollars.
Misses McMeekin and Ruff desire
to extend their thanks for the
presence of so many friends and
for their very liberal patronage.
They promise another entertain
ment in the near future.
I learn from a recint' letter
from Corp. J. A. McKinscry, Co.
C, 27th Regt. Iuf. U. S. R., that
they will leave for the Philippine

They seem to rejoice at the
change, for they are tired of duty
in the States. The snow was
three feet deep at Columbus on
the 4th when he wrote. They
have drawn their uniforms of
Kaki preparatory for the trip.

Saved Him From Torture.
There is no more agonizing trouble
than piles. The constant itehing and
burning make life intolerable. No
position is comfortable. The torture is
unceasing. DeWitt's Witch Hazel
Salve cures piles at once. For skin
diseases, cuts, burns, bruises, all kinds
of wounds it is unequalled. J. S.
Gerall, St. Paul, Ark., says: "From
1865 f suffered with the protruding,
bleeding piles and could find.!nothing
to help me until I used DeWittys Witch
Hazel Salve. A few boxe mpletly
cured me." Beware o te
