The Health ok Wixxsboeo.?
"McM.," in a communication in these
columns several days ago, complains
that we did Winnsboro an injustice in
our allusion to the health of the town.
We don't think the local notice would
warrant the inference that Winnsboro
is an unhealthy place. We meant to
convey the idea that the cause of sickness
here was-temporary in its character
and wonld be likely to affect the
healthiest of localities. Winnsboro
has always been and is cow one of the
healthiest towns in South Carolina and
this fact will scarcely be denied by

The County Convention.?It is not
long now before the County Convection
wQl meet here and we hope a
tariff resolution will be unanimously
and enthusiastically adopted by that
body. The agitation, if effectual,
raust begin at home, and Democrats
right here in Fairfield county are as
vitally interested in the outcome of the
discussion and the attitude of the party,
as the National Convention- at Chicago
will be. The Jtfetcs and Courier says
nf fVio loi-ifT vocnlnf imi rp^pnt? v adonted
by the County Convention at Chesterfield:
Chesterfield county takes a bold and
firm stand on the tariff question, and
calls for standard-bearers who shall
stand upon the Democratic platform of
opposition to protective taxes and
fight the battle of reform. Each
county should declare its opinions in

young men to the front, and there is

Willoughby Reade.?The entertainment
announced in these columns
for Tuesday evening last was moderately
good and fairly enjoyed by the
audience. The programme consisted
of recitations by Prof. Reade, and
some of the* selected pieces were tragi
cal in character* while others were
comical and humorous. The enteri
tainment was in the Court House, and
lasted for two hours. Comedy
and tragedy were judiciously mixed}
and Prof. Reade's recitations were
well rendered and generally appreciated
by his hearers. "The Lady or
the Tiger" and "The Mad Man and his
Lost Annette" were the best impersonated
characters among those of a tragical
type, while the comedies proved.
laughable and enjoyable. The entertain
mentfbeing a benefit performance,
it is especially to be regretted that the
audience was small. We are unable
to give a statement of the net receipts,
but they are certainly hot sufficient to

A Homicide.?In a difficulty at Rock
City, in this county, on last Thursday
night, Sandy Robertson shot and mortally
wounded Allen Dellen)-. The
[ unfortunate affair grew out of a proset
cution instituted against Sandy Robertson
by a colored woman several days
ago, Allen Delleny taking the woman's
part. From the prisoner's statement
and from the version given by
other parties present, it appears that
Sandv Robertson was on Thursday
evening, about dark, walking home
from Rock Ctty iu company with.
Sarah "Williams"' and just before reaching
the railroad crossing near the
quarry they were met by Allen
Delleny and Snmpter Gregg. The
former accosted Robertson about
the difficulty with the woman on the
day previous, and used violent and
abusive language. According to the
prisoner's side of the case, Delleny
presented his pistol' to Robertson's
breast and said that he intended killing
him. Robertson knocked up the
weapon, drew his own pistol and fired
at Dfclleny, wounding him in the forehead.
Delleny died from the effects
of the wound late Thursday night, and
Robertson promptly surrendered him
self to the sheriff on Friday morning.
Both the prisoner and the deceased are
negroes, and they had been on friendly
terms up to within a short time of
the killing. ;

tion of the play and farce. It was
known in the early afternoon that the
crowd would be unusually large, and
at eight o'clock men, women and children
began hurrying towards the hall,
and in a short time every reserved
seat was filled, and even the "peanut
gallery" groaned beneath a burden of
living beings. "We said "the peanut
gallery groaned," and it did, for we
heard its echoes to the front amid the
elite of Winnsboro. Seats gave way,
gentlemen suddenly came in rnde contact-.
with the, hard floor, and the ladies
near by were embarrassed and shocked
at the spectacle. Bat quiet was restored
again and before nine o'clock
the curtain rose and the performance
began.. "Among* the Breakers" was
the first and principal part of the programme,
and with its performance the
audience was lirst entertained, xne
following is the caste of characters, to

Mr. Lauderdale was the representative

Chandler, G. L. Huey, J. G. McCants
and D. K.. Flenniken, contributed the
second part of the programme. There
was unfortunately a little halt in the
beginning of the first piece, but it
amounted to nothing, and the singing
was good enongh for the most fastidious.
The evening's programme was concluded
with a farce entitled, "The

Moxticello, May 29.?Yesterday
afternoon there was a narrow escape
from death by lightning in this neighborhood.

were thrown into the house. The escape
of the inmates seems almost miraculous.

A WjCtLlrimUVYn V/lllZiikil vr JLAV ^. .
In August, 1881, nearly three years ago,
my son, who was at that time living at
Clinton, Ga., came over to see me with the
sad intelligence that his wife was in the
last stages of consumption and that her
yiiyniainn ha*! mymnnrftii her case hopeless.
I went iDHBediately over, anCTl" fiaf
thai nothing could be done. She was
coughing and spitting incessantly, and at
times would discharge from her lungs a
large quantity of pus or matter?could not
sleep or retain anything on her stomach,
and was, in fact, in the last stages of tne
disease. Tliis was about the time you began
to advertise Brewer's Lung Restorer,
and as my son expressed a desire to give it :
to his wife, two or three bottles were procured
and with scarcely a vestige of hope
we commenced giving it to her In small
doses, gradually increasing the quantity
until th& prescribed dose was'reached. She
began to improve after a few doses and
continued to do so daily, until she -was
finally restored to life and health, and is ,
to-day perhaps in better health than ever
before. She is subject to colds, but a few i
ctxtoII/vu/o r\f Rrewpr's 1 .nntr Restorer
(which she is never without) "relieve her
immediately. I consider her restoration to i
perfect health a miracle, for which she is
indebted to Brewer's Lung Restorer. My
son is almost a monomaniac on the subject
of Brewer's Lung Restorer and never lets
an opportunity pass where he thinks such ?
medicine would be required, that he does
noispeak of it in most glowing terms. Not
long since a Northern gentleman on his
wav to Florida heard of this cure and was
, induced bjr toy son to give it to his invalid
wife, and she was cured as if by magic.
"Mr. Charles Eden, of Trinidad, Colorado,
says: Seeing certificates of the wonderful
cures made by Brewer's Lung Restorer, I
was induced to try -it pn my little son, who
was troubled with lung or throat affection,
pronounced by one physician, consumption,
It acted wonderfully on hiei, and by
the tiine he had taken one bottle of it the
cough disappeared, I am now on a visit to
my parents in Georgia, but will return in a
few days to my home and will certainly
take some of the Lung Restorer with me.
