Sloan is a widow lady without chil
dren or near kin, old and very feeble,
and is altogether a worthy subject of
a liberal and Christian charity. Particularly
docs she merit the benevolence
or assistance of the good people
of Winnsboro, when it is remembered
that she lost her six and only boys in
the Confederate army during the late
war. She has given so much for the
country?will the country give nothing
I in return?

is the comparative cotton statement for

in any manner to the pursuit of agriculture.
It is a charming number, and
an eucouraging harbinger for the
fatare. We are promised in the next
issue, and in the succeeding nnmbers
for this year, a Manual prepared by
the State Agricultural Department of
Georgia, on Cattle, Hogs, Sheep and
Poultry, which we are told will be
found exceedingly interesting to all
classes. He who reads "Thoughts for
the Month" is amply prepared, as an
agriculturalist, to pass safely through
that particular period to which it refers.
As we turn page after page we
are delighted with its contents.
Killing Off the Postal Card.?
Since the introduction of two-cent letter
postage there has been an unexpected
reduction in the number of
postal cards issued. For five years the
average annual increase in the issue
has been fourteen per cent. Since
Julv 1st last, there has been an increase
of eighteen per cent, in the number of
adhesive stamps, and twenty-five per
cent, in the number of stamped envelopes
issued. During those eight
months the issue of postal cards only
reached 256,552,750 as against 260,226,250
during the corresponding period in
the preceding year. In consequence
of the decreased demand for postal
cards, the Postmaster General has sent
a letter to the Speaker of the House of
Representatives, informing him that
the estimates for the cost of manufac
- it. J* 1 -AAM
luring- tae carus lur u*c ucm usuu j
may be reduced $35,000. The reason
assigned at the department for the
decreased issue of the cards is that
many communications formerly made
by that means are now made through
Dramatic Club.?We are glad to be
informed that the 'Thespian Corps", a
dramatic organization heretofore existing
in Winnsboro, has been reorganized,
and in a few weeks will
begin preparations for an entertainment
in the Thespian Hall. Mr. G. B.
McCants has been elected president
of the club, Mr. J. H. Harden vicepresident,
and Mr. T. W. Lauderdale
secretary and treasurer. ?he" membership
at present is about twelve, but
will probably be increased to niteen,
and will doubtless be made a permanent
organization. There are no lady
iaembers of the club,- but. different
ones will be requested from^ time to
time to take such parts as the'character
of the play and the exigencies of,
the occasion may suggest. The revival
of the old "Thespian Corps?' on the
part of our young men is commendable
and praiseworthy, and we trust
that the good people of Winnsboro
will lend to the organization and its
individual members their appreciation,
encouragement and support.
Mortality of the Negro.?-The
mortality of the negro race in Fairfield
countv is tearfully on the increase.
: Strong bodied and athletic men, vigorous
women and. apparently healthy
children take down sick and die with
but a few weeks warning. Thoughtful
and observing physicians, whose
extensive practice entitles them to
speak With authority, estimate that
seventy-five per cent, of the deaths in
this county ior the past few years has
been the result of consumption. This
seems strange and to some extent unexplainaWe,
in the light of the fact
that the negro race is stronger, more
muscular and hardier than the whites.
But aR-explanationof the phenomenon
might possibly be found in the fad
that the negroes neither properly care
for themselves nor their offspring;
and being ilt-fed and miserably olacl
consumption and other pulmonary diseases
would bnt follow upon the principles
of natural causation. It would
be interesting to hear irom gentlemer
who are well informed upon the subject
under consideration. Will nol
some of our physicians give us th(
results of their experience and observation
in this particular?
Relief fob the Cyclone Sufferers.?Col.
A. P. Butler of the agricultural
department is in daily receipt oi
communications from almost ever}
Quarter of the State, asking relief foi
the sufferers from the late unprecedented
tornado. Among the nambei
received are letters from the Hon
Giles J. Patterson, of Chester, anc
John W.Lyles, Esq., of this couaty
Mr. Lvles appeals specially for twe
ladies, one of whom lost her hous<
and its contents by fire during tiu
storm, and the other who was in fee
ble health was badly injured. He als<
directed the commissioner's atteritioi
to the destitute condition of severa
colored families in his immediate
neighborhood. The destructiveness of
the storm in various portions of the
county is proof sufficient that there
are numbers of whites and blacks in
needy and destitute circumstances, and
a little substantial assistance from the
more fortunate of our fellow-citizens
would be gracious charity well bestowed.
Earnest efforts should be
made throughout the county to raise
as much of the needed funds at home as
the condition of our people will permit.
CONGRESSIONAL DOMINATION. ? A
Fairfield subscriber to the Camden
Journal in a pointed communication
to that paper has placed in nomination
Col. F. W. McMaster, of Columbia, as
a candidate for Congress from this
congressional district, to succeed Mr.
Evins, the present incumbent. In its
editorial comments the Journal says:
Col. McMaster is so well known that
to speak of his integrity, his love of
truth, his devotion to 'principle, his
undying affection for all that savors of
right, would be too much for a short
notice of this kind. If he was in our
congressional district to-day we would
place his name first, last and forever.
It would be a pleasure to us to see a
mail so pure, so nonoraoie, so iugn in
all that pertains to the sacred duties of
life, elevated to a position so distinguished.
Unostentatious, gentle, yet
firm, fixed and irrevocable, when duty
calls him, we shall rejoice to see such a
man in position onca more; and when
we afain see the trading1 politician
remanded to the shades of obscurity,
and such men as McMaster placed in
position, we will have hope in the life
of the Republic, and cry with truth
and sincerity, "JSsto Perpetua."
Ukiform foe the Sxate Volunteers.?The
commission appointed to
select and prescribe a general uniform
for the State Volunteer Troops has
completed its work and adjourned.
The specifications for the uniforms
have not been fully committed to writing
yet and are very long, but the
following covers the ground: Privates
will wear gray suits of the United
States army regulation cut. ' Officers
will wear gray coats and dark bin?
trousers. Officers and men alike will
wear helmets. The generals only will
adhere to the chapeau. The uniforms
will have facings according to the different
arms of the service?infantry
black, cavalry yellow and artillery
red. The shoulder knots will be of
the regulation United States pattern.
In all respects the-cat and finish of the
uuiforms will conform as closely as
possible to the United States regulation
style. The uniform adopted will
be.simple and inexpensive, but at the
same time soldier-like and sufficiently
attractive. The coat for privates' uniform
will vary from $8 to $14, according
to the quality of the material used.
Of course each command can select its
own cloth for uniforms. The com-,
mission has done its work quickly and
well. "While our soldiery will not be
as gaily clad as many now are, they
will nave tne consolation 01 oeingsaved
from great expense by the adoption
of a really uniform uniform of
The School Law.?"We are indebted
to the State Superintendent of Education
for a copy of the School Law of
the State, nicely and neatly bound in
pamphlet form. It is the edition of
1884 and contains the various provi- j
sions of the statutes relative to this i
subject as amended to date and the
different resolutions of public importance
adopted by the State Board of
Examiners. There have been but few
changes of general interest made in
the law within the last few years, but.
constructions given the diflerent sections
by the different administrations
do not exactly harmonize. By way of
illustration and as a matter of practical
concern to the school trustees
throughout the county, it would be
-veil to call public attention to the fact
ihat under the administration of Governor
Thompson as Slate superintendant
the signature of the chairman or
clerk of the board of trustees to the
teachers' pay certificates was held and
esteemed sufficient to justify and authorize
endorsement of the school
commissioner and payment by the
county treasurer. But Col. Coward,
the present superintendent, holds that
these certificates to be valid and legal
must bear the signatures of at least
two members of tbe board. The present
construction is of practical importance
to the school trustees in the
transaction of their official duties, and
it would be well for all of them to
bear this fact in mind. It is to be
hoped that copies of the School Law

l Death of a Student.?Mr. J. N.
; Waters, a student in the Crosby;
ville Institute, died on the 7th inst., of
pneumonia, in the 24th year of his age.
; Mr. Waters was held in general
t esteem, and his death will be deeply
regretted. The following preamble
and resolutions were unanimously
: .adopted at a meeting of the teachers
i and students of thelnstitnte: .
Whereas, .the shadow of death has
I fallen upon, and forever shrouded from
our mortal vision, the manly form' of
' our late lamented friend and fellow
pupil, Mr. J. N. Waters; and
[ Whereas, thejloving companionship
t of many months call for some expressionof
our esteem for him, our sympathy
for his bereaved relatives, and
; our inexpressible sorrow over his un
s timely departure for the echoless
shores of eternity; therefore now. by
the pupils of the Crosby Institnte be it
Resolved: 1. That in the lamented
death of our late companion we recog.
nize the loss of one whose manly form
? inspired confidence, whose proficiency
as a pupil awakened bright hopes for
r the future, whpse courteous bearing
: and sterling integrity demanded our
. admiration, and whose aflability won
. our love.
2. That in view of his blameless life
and the religious experience of his last
I few days, we mourn not as those that
have no hope, believing that "even as
' Jesus died and arose again, even ao
also them that sleep in Jesus will God
5 bring with Him in the First Eesurreci
tion." - _
. :: 8. Tfoafc though the veiL.be_ so upon
. oar spiritual understanding that we
cannot now folly recognize tne intend1
ed benevolence of oar Father s will]
I we nevertheless bow in meek submit
? sion and repeat with Job, "The Lord
gave, and the Lord hath taken away;
Blessed be the name of the Lord."
4. That our tenderest sympathies arc
herebv respectfully tendered to his bereaved
relatives, whom we prayerfully
commend for consolation to the only
True Comforter, as commanded by
St. Paul in I. Thes. IT., 13-18.
5. That a copy esoh of these resolutions

the deceased, to the Chairman of the

wife was taken with a severe pain m her
side, which was soon followed by hemorrhages
from her lungs, severe cough,
fever and she could neither eat or sleep,
and in a few weeks she was reduced to a
living skeleton. Her stomach refused to
retain any food and the physician thought
one of her lungs was entirely gone. At a
final consultation of two physicians her
case was pronounced hopeless. I tried
Brewer's Lung Restorer by advice of one
of the physicians and she began to improve
after the third dose. She continued the
medicine and is now in excellent health,

ttfi. JOHN PEABSON'S STATEMENT.
In the spring of 18821 was attacked with
3, very had cough, which continned to
now worse until fall, when I got so weak
that I could not get about I fried a great
many kinds of medicine but continued to
pow worse. I was notified that I had
cons omption and would probably die. Dr.
Holloway finally told me to fay Brewer's
Lung Restorer. They sent to ward's Store
and cot a bottle and I commenced taking
it right away. After taking. two or three
loses, I began to improve, and by the time
[ had osed up one bottle I was able to get
an my feet again. -I am now in excellent
health. I am confident that the Lung Restorer
saved my life and my neighbors are
[>f the same opinion. It is the best Lung
Remedy ever made in my opinion. Dr.
H. promised me that he would write to the
manufacturers and tell them of the wonierful
cure it made in my case.
Statement of Mr. Benj. F. fiearndon.
Early in November, 1881, while sewing
:>n the machine, my wife was taken with a
severe pain in her side,. which was- soon

ind a severe cough. Fever commenced,
she conld neither eat nor sleep, and in a few
weeks she was reduced to a living skeleton,
rhe attending physician told me that he
thought one of her lungs was entirely gone.
She could not retain the most delicate
nourishment on her stomach. I then
agreed with Dr. Sullivan, my family physician,
to call Dr. Holloway in consultation.
Ihey made a final examination of the
patient and pronounced the case hopeless.
Dr Holloway then suggested the Brewer's
Lung Restorer as a last resort I sent for a
tattle and gave her a dose. I found that
she could retain it on her stomach and
after about the third dose, I began to
notice some improvement in her condition.
[ continued the medicine regularly, and by
the time she had taken two bottles, she
was able to walk about the house. She is
now in better health than she has enjoyed
tor several years. I believe. that Lung
Resto^r saved her life. We have a family
of six children, some of them grown."

Upson county, Ga. He is a thoroughly
reliable man in every particular.
