?In November next every office
from coroner to President is to be
filled by an election. It is about the
time now for the aspirants to announce
their names for the favor and consideration
of the "dear people". The
News and Herald realizes the importance
of having a big batch of candi
dates from which to select the party
standard-bearers, and consequently
will take pleasure in publishing any
nnmberof cards for the various county,
State and Federal offices. In this
country and in this age the men must
seek the offices not the offices the men.
Town Election.?It will be seen by
reference to a notice published in todav's
issue that an election for intend
ant and wardens will take place on the
first Monday in April next. Candidates
for the honors should announce
Important Meeting.?"We are requested
to state that there will be a

o'clock, sharp. A full attendance is

The Times and Democrat.?Mr.
S. R. Mellichamp has withdrawn from
the editorial conduct of the Orangeburg
Times and Democrat, leaving
the management of that . * -ellent
paper iu the hands of Mr. J. L. Sims.
We have no doubt that the paper will
continue to occupy its present position
?that of one of the very best county
journals ever published in South Carolina.
Fob the General Sessions.?The
preliminary examination in the case of
the State against Isom Coleman,
charged with an assault and battery
with intent to kill upon the personal
Primus Williams, was held before
Justice Cathcart on Tuesday, the 4th
inst. Messrs. Gaillard & Reynolds
appeared for the prosecution and
Messrs. McDonald & Douglass for the
defence. The defendant gave bond
for his appearance for trial at the June
term of the Court of General Sessions.
A Merited Compliment.?The members
of the two literary societies of the
South Carolina College have recently
elected Prof. R. Means Davis the
alumnus editor of the South Carolina
Collegian. Mr. J. A. McCollough is
now the editor-in-chief. The students
of the College certainly were wise in
the selection of the alumnus editor.
A ripe and accomplished scholar, a
ready and vigorous writer, Professor
Davis will give to the Collegian a
literary tone aud standing equal to any
journal of a like character iu the South.
Something New.?The Family Circle,
a sixteen page illustrated weekly
journal for the home, will shortly be
issued in Detroit. Every reader of
this paper who sends his or her name
to the publishers, of the Family Circle,
at Detroit, will receive the paper free
for six weeks, six numbers in all. If

$20 a week given for interesting bits
of reading matter, either original or
selected, and $250 a month to club
raisers. Address your post card, The
Family Circle, Detroit, Mich.
The Festival.?Considering the
inclemency of the weather on last
Tuesday evening the festival for the
benefit of the Methodist parsonage was
weli attended. The net earnings of
the different tables aggregated about
ninety dollars. This is only approximately
correct. The funds raised on
Tuesday night will, of course, be insufficient
to complete the work in
contemplation, but it will be a substantial
aid in that direction, and for
it, the ladies of the Methodist church
deserve the hearty well-done of all
good, Christian people.
Personal.?The Rer. H. B. Pratt,
of Lancaster, spent the early part of
this week among his old friends and
acquaintances in "Winnsboro. Mr.
Pratt preached very acceptably for a
number of years in the Presbyterian
church, in this place, and is now the
duly installed pastor of the congregation
at Lancaster. He is looking
stronger and healthier tbau usual, and
his many friends here are glad to welcome
him back to his old home.
Mr. "William Caldwell and wife, of
Hazlewood, Chester county, have been
spending several days with the family
of Mr. D. R. Flenniken, of this place.
New Advertisements.?Mr. J. L.
Mimnauzh will give public announce
meat iu & few days of the arrival of
his unusually large stock of spring
goods and of the low figures at which
his goods will be retailed. Give Mr.
Mimnaugh a call when you come to
Messrs. A. Williford & Co. offer
special inducements to all parties needing
articles in the dry goods department
in to-day'8 issue of The News
and Herald. These gentlemen have
011 hand a splendid stock of dry goods,
notions, etc.* and we have no doubt
good and reasonably low bargains can
be had by giving them a call and inspecting
their stock. Go and see for
Fire Alarm.?About five o'clock or
the morning of the 4th inst. the fire
bell rang and the alarm of fire was
taken np and echoed from one end of
town to the other. A little investigation,
however, disclosed the fact that
it was nothing more than an alarm. A
small tenant house about two hundred
yards above the residence of Mr. T. K.
Elliott, along the line of the Charlotte,
Columbia & Augusta Bailroad, had
caught on fire, and this was the cause
of the excitement and commotion in
town. The house being without the
corporate limits, unoccup:.^ and at a
considerable distance from any residence,
little or no efforts were made
to save it and the flames in a few hours
rased it to the ground. The origin o:
the fire is not definitely known, but i
is supposed by some to have been firec
by sparks from the engine of the foui
o'clock freight train. When first dis
covered the roof was in a blaze.

A Novel Institution.?Among the
gifts presented to Mr. B. N. Craig, o]
Rock Hill, on the evening of his max*riage
was a jug nicely arranged in a
cologne case and filled to the brim. II
bore the following:
"Put up August 22, 1882, and to be
presented to the lucky one of the following
four who marries first: "W. M,

at an early day.
Results of Competition.?1There
has been a considerable redaction in
the rates on commercial telegrams by
the "Western Union Telegraph Company.
To New York the rates have
been cnt down from seventy-five cents
to sixty cents, and the same reduction
has been made upon messages to Penn
sylvania and New Jersey. To California
and the other Pacific States
there is a come down from $1.50 tc
$1.00. So it would be safe to say thai
the reduction in question throughout
the country would average between
ntceen and twenty per cent, lhe rates,
therefore, of the Western Union and
of the Southern Telegraph Company
are now about the same for all the
different places North, South, East and
West. This is but one among the
many evidences of healthy competition
and we are glad to chronicle the
fact. Both companies are now on a
sure and solid financial basis, and the
existence of two rival offices in Winnsboro
cannot but result in good to the
mercantile interest of the place.
Commendable Liberality.?We arc
iudebted to the thoughtfulness and
liberality of ihe Travelers' Insurance
Company, of Hartford, Conn., for a
copy of a special "press edition" of the
official engraving of the Barthoidi
statue and pedestal, now in the process
of erection in New York harbor. The
engraving is one of the finest in execution
and clearest and most distinct in
outline we huve ever seen, and doubtless
gives an accurate conception oi
wnat win ue tnc appcarance 01 me
statue when complete. Subscriptions
are being raised all over the country
for its early completion and moneys
are to be raised by the sale of this
engraving. The Travelers' Insurance
Company, for the purposes of distribution,
purchased copies for every
newspaper in the country at an expense
of $1,700, $1,000 of which
amount will be its actual contribution
to the needed funds. The statue when
finished will rank among the wonders
of the world.
Personal.?Mr. Jas. E.Douglass, oi
Albion, in this county, returned home
on Monday, the 3d inst., from Charleston,
where he has been in attendance
upon the session of the South Carolina
Medical College. Mr. Douglass will
complete his course of study at the
next regular session of that institution,
Mrs. Rev. Neil E. Pressly and hei
three children, of Tampico, Mexico,
arrived iu "Winnsboro on the northbound
train on Friday. Mrs. Press] j
for several years past has been assisting

work of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian

for her a pleasant stay in Winnsboro

Deaths.?Intelligence has been re
in t/vum nf frhp rlpath of Mrs
Martha E. Stames, formerly of Fair

which occurred on the night of the lsl
inst. Nothing has yet been learned o:
the cause of her death. She leaves
five orphan children and a number o:
friends and relatives to monrn hci

and useful colored mau, died in the
Salem neighborhood, in this county,
on the 27th ult. He leaves a wife anc

county, died a few days ago.
Bethel Presbytery.-A called meet
ing of the Bethel Presbytery of the
Presbyterian church v^sls held at Scior
church, in this place, on Monday
evening, the 4th inst. The meeting
f was called for the purpose of a formal
t severance of the relations of pastor and
1 people heretofore existing1 between the
Rev. W. W. Mills and the congrega
tions of Jackson's Creek and Salem
chnrches in this countv. The usual
forms and ceremonies were duly ob'
served and the purposes of the meet_
ing having- been accomplished the
| Presbytery promptly adjourned. There
was but a small attendance of the min'
isters of the Presbytery, but a sufficient
number from the neighboring
churches were in attendance to insure
a proper discharge of the duties of the
meeting. The Rev. W. "W Mills, as
' stated in these columns some weets
ago, will take charge of the Presbyte'
rian church in Camden. Mr. Mills
expects to remove to his new field of
labor some time during the present
" month. His departure from Fairfield

The Corn Crop.?The New York
| jEvening Post gives an accurate and
interesting statement of the position
of the corn crop in the business world.
It would be well for our farmers to
1 read and ponder over the figures given
| below and accord to the grain question
the favorable and impartial consideration
its importance demands. It
j says: 1
The attentiou of mauy persons is
! now fixed upon the corn crop as one
of the most important factors in re!
spect to improvement, not only in the
price of stocks, but in business generally.
The fact t hat the corn crop is
! of almost as great money value as all
the other grain crops put together,
; may be understood bv comparing the
crop of, say, 18,000,000,000 bushels of
corn at twenty-five cents per bushel in
, farmers' hands (amounting to $4,500,
, 000,000) with, say, 5uu,wu,wu oasneis
of wheat, at an average price of sixty
! cents (to the farmers), amounting to
t ?300,000,000. Al! the other grain
. crops would be worth only about the
difference between the value of corn
" and wheat. The great bulk of the
1 corn crop for this year is now secure,
! and there is now scarcely anything
. that could occur to make the corn crop
below an average. In the West many
persons are already basing their busi'
ness operations on the expectation of a
very large crop, and this has probably
also induced the buying of some
The "Work at Hock. City.?The
-Columbia correspondent of the News
and Courier writes again of the
growth of Rock City, in this county,
aud of the probable future of the
quai l v. iic sayo.
The railroad now runs up to the five1
acre field of granite, upon which a
i large force of hands is employed under
t the management of the Pearce Granite,
. "Works of Columbia. A branch track
' -will soon be run to the "eleven-acre
field," which will supply fine rock for
, ages to come. The Pearcc Granite
: works now employ thirty-three pavs
ing-block cutters, all Scotch experts,
. who earn their $4 to $6 daily. A
? dozen of these Scotchmen very receutly
came over from the old country
k bringing with them their families, and
t there is now a permanent Seotch colony
at Rock City. More will be sent
for as the work increases in volume.
They maintain a fine boarding-house
and" some are building houses for
-themselves near the quarry. The proprietors
of the property are putting
up, or are about to put up, seventeen
houses for the accommodation of the
laborers, white and colored. It looks
queer to see framed one-story cottages
ornamented with chimneys made of
beautiful light gray granite blocks.
But, then, granite is very much cheaper
than brick at Rock City. In all, there
are over one hundred hands at work
at the Pearcc quarry, and they turn
out daily for shipment ten car loads of
paving blocks (1,000 to the car load)
and two car loads of dimension stone.
There are two steam drills at worK ana
i a steam hoister. These enable rapid
dispatch to be made. The contracts
for supplying the streets of Charleston
and Wilmington with paving blocks
I are large, and require the best labor
and the best machinery. Large as this
granite interest already is it is still
only in its infencv. .
[ Tramps.?The number of tramps in
this part of the country is alarmingly
[ on the increase, and the question what
? should be done with them is becomj
ing a more serious one every day.
P They literally crowd the track of the
. Charlotte, Columbia & Augusta Railroad
during the day, torment the good
t people of the community with their
. entreaties for food and shelter, and at
nightfall they drop down by the way!
side and in slumber, await the coming
| of another day, only to repeat the
^ vagrancy of the day before. The
penal laws of the State provide speedy
[ and effectual remedies iu such cases
[ and every good citizen should co-operate
with the officers of the law and see
j that these tramps are made to halt in
their depredations. Section 1604 of
| the General Statutes of the State provides
that "all persons wandering
from place to place, or residing in any
*?ifv rrmnfv nr tnwn. who have no
V"V J J ? -- ? 7
risible or known means of gaining a
fair, honest and reputable livelihood,
* * and all sturdy beggars are and
shall be deemed vagrants and liable to ,
. the penalties of this chapter." It is
; further provided, upon an affidavit
t made, that any trial justice may issue
r his warrant for apprehension and
r arrest, may examine into the conduct
and occupation of the party on trial,
and if a satisfactory account is not
fnven nf his rrmrlnof and ftf his honest
O- -- ?
means of support, the trial justice may
require a bond with sufficient sureties
for his, her or their good behavior
for twelve months from the dar of
| trial. Upon failure to give the requi
site bond the prisoner shall De committed
to jail to await trial at the ensning
term of the Court of General
Sessions, and if there fouud guilty of
vagrancy, may be sentenced to one
year at hard labor in the State prison.
This is the law, plain and simple, and
if our people are suffering from evils
Af fhie tliAv noil -forthwith
resort to the protection of the penal
code of the State. If they do not no
one can be blamed bnt themselves.

How depressing it is to see acres of trees
cut down In the midst of a noble forest.
How saddening it is also to see that thin
spot in the midst of your otherwise abundant
hair. Stop it at once by the use of
Parker's Hair Balsam. For actual efficiency
this famous article stands at the head of
its class. Elegant for the toilet, delicious
in odor, and restores the original color to
gray or faded hair. Economical, as a
slight, occasional application keeps the

"Yes," she said, "our children are married
and gone, and my husband and I sit
by our winter fire much as we did before
the little ones came to widen the circle.
Life is something like a spiral staircase;
we are all the time coming around over the
spot we started from, only one degree
further up the stairs.
"That is a pretty illustration," remarked
her friend, musingly, gazing into the glowing
coals which radiated a pleasant heat
from the many windowed stove. "You

with calamity or suffering, for I have had
my share of that. Not long since my health
utterly broke down. My system was full
of malaria. My digestion became thoroughly
disordered and my nerves were in a
wretched state. I was languid, ate little
and that without enjoying it, and had no
strength or ambition to perform even my
light household duties. Medical treatment
failed to reach the seat of the trouble. The
disease?which seemed to be weakness of
all the vital organs?progressed until I had
several attacks which my physicians pronounced
to he acute congestion of the
stomach. The last of these was a desper-1
ate struggle and I was given up to die. As
the crisishad partially passed,my hushand j
heard of the merits of PAKKEB'S TONIC
as an invigorant in just such cases as mine.
I took it and felt its good effects at once.
It appeared to pervade my body, as though
the blessing of new life had come to me.
Taking no other medicine I continued to
improve, and am now in better health than
I have been for a long time."
