The Cotton.?Reliable and competent
farmers inform us that the dainr
age done the cotton crop by the recent
cold weather is of a much more permanent
and serious character than was
at first anticipated. The appearance
of the cotton now is as it it had been
scalded with hot water, and it will
doubtless take some time for it to re- .
cover from these injuries.

but considerably better than the collections
in this county last year, and

County Normal Institute.?The
report of the teachers committee to the
County Board of Examiners of last
Saturday contained some valuable and
favorable information relative to the
feasibility of a Normal Institute for
fhn nonntv. The action of the Board
on the report was postponed until next
Saturday, the 14th inst. As an important
factor, which will likely influence
final action in the premises, the Board
is desirous of knowing what entertainment
can be given the teachers
here during the continuance of the
Institute. The session would not last
more than four days, and all families
who may be willing to entertaiu one

interest to our fanners and others:
Sec. 3. That hereafter the special
tax of a dealer in manufactured tobacco
shall 110c be required of any farmer,
planter or lumberman who furnishes
such tobacco only as rations or
supplies to his laborers* or employees

engaged in the general business
of selling dry goods, groceries, or similar
supplies in the manner of a riserchant

own employees or laborers.
Tiik Leaf Year Picnic.?The picnic
at Pearson's Rocks on Thursday
last was all that the most sanguine
expected on that day, and the young
men desire to thank the yonn^ J"dies
for their rural entertainment, ^bout
eight couples, chaperoned by Mrs.
Dunn and Mrs. Desportes, composed
the picnic crowd. "With a small but
congenial crowd, the whole day was
one of splendid enjoyment. The girls
succeeded admirably in learning the
different tastes and inclination of the
different boys and consequently all
were entertained according to their
particular liking. The repast was
plentiful and exceptionally palatable.
The party remained in the woods and
around the rocks until six o'clock, and
all in buggies returned to their homes

The picnic was a success, and we-hope
the ladies will not forget to entertain

A Brilliant Wedding.?-The Rock
Hill Herald gives an interesting account
of the brilliant wedding of Miss
Beverly Means, who is well and favor
ably known in Wimisboro. It says:
Last Tuesday night, June 3d, the
Episcopal church at this place was the
scene of the most brilliant marriage
that has perhaps ever occurred in Rock
Hill. _ The contracting parties were
our highly esteemed fellow-townsman,
Dr. T. M. DuBose, and Miss Beverly
Means, daughter of the late lamented
Captain Beverly Means, of I' airfield.
The ceremony was performed by the
Rev. E. N. Joyner in the presence of
lnrorosf r>rmr?.r>nrcr? nf
was ever assembled in the church.
* * * *
Tiras ended the marriage occasion of
Dr. Theodore M. DnBose, one of the
best young men and one of the most
perfect gentlemen we have ever known,
and Miss Frances Beverly Means,
whom every one in this community
esteems and honors as one of the pur
i est, most aimable and loveable young -i
j ladies in our country- Happy couple, j
Mr. and Mrs. DnBose left on "Wed- ;
i nesday afternoon's train on a tour to i
I Sewannee, Tennessee, the native home j
of the groom. They certainly have;
the best wishes of every person in j
Rock Hill for a most prosperous and
! happy life.
We failed to state in the proper j
' placc that the church had been deco-,
rated with festoons and garlands of;
i flowers and evergreens in a roost beau- j
tifal and tasteful manner by lady;
| friends. It was as pretty as a picture.,
The Railroad Commission Cases. j
?The interesting railroad cases recent- j
ly argued in the Circuit Court at Co- j
luinbia were important as involving- j
the powers of the Railroad Commis-!
sion over the railroads of the State.
The cases were heard on appeal from
the decision of the Railroad Commission.
and both of them were ably and
elaborately argued by Col. James H.
Rion for the railroad company and
Attorney General Miles for the Commission.
Judge Kershaw filed his defrPOC
in thoco All fVlA Sivl lllSf..
In the first case the Judge decides that
the railroad company canuot charge
an additional one-half cent per mile
for second class passengers who fail to
buy tickets. This leaves the company
to charge this extra rate for first,
class passengers without tickets. The
second case involved the light of the
Commissioners to regulate freights
from points within to points without
the State, and the reverse. The Judge
decides the Commission has no power
so to do, as that affects inter-State commerce,
reverses the Commission and
sustains the -appeal of the railroad
company. The first decision is of very
little importance; but the second great
ly curtails the power of the uommission.
While the specific freight rates
involved referred only to merchandise
shipped from Columbia to North Carolina,
the point decided applies to all
passengers and merchandise that cross
a State line. On these the Commission
cannot regulate the rates upon
any part of the route, even upon a
road that is entirely within this State.
This latter decision in a great measure
practically strips the Commission or its
power over the railroads, and we believe
that Judge Kersdaw's decree is
not only good law, bat is founded
upon sound public policy.THE

MR. JOHN PEARSON'S STATEMENT, j ,
In the spring of lo>2 I was attacked with i !
a very bad cough, which continued to! ;
grow worse until fall, when I got so weak j ,
that I could not get about. I tried a great i i
many kinds of medicine but continued to j i
grow worse. I was notified that I had j
consumption and would probably die. Dr. [
Holloway finally told me to try Brewer's j i
Lung Restorer."They sent to Ward's Store I j
and got a bottle and I commenced taking i *
it right away. After taking two or three ! 1
doses, I began to improve, and bv the time j
I had used up one bottle 1 was at>Ie to get
on my feet again. I am now in excellent?

saved my life and my neighbors are 1
of the same opinion. It is the "best Lung
Remedy ever made in my opinion. Dr. j
H. promised me that he would write to the
manufacturers and tell them of the wonderful
cure it made jn my case. - (
Statement of Mr. Beuj. F. Heariidoii.
Early in November, 1381, while sewing t
on the machine, my wife was taken with a I
severe pain in her side, which was Soon
followed by hemorrhages from her lungs
and a severe cough. Fever commenced, l
she could neither eat nor sleep, ana m a tew weeks
she was reduced to a Jiving skeleton. t
T'^ Attending physician told me that lie t
tijo ught one of her lungs was entirely gone. 1
She could not retain the most delicate 1
nourishment on her stomach. I then
agreed with Dr. Sullivan, my family physician,
to call Dr. Holloway in consultation.
They made a final examination of the
Eatient and pronounced the case hopeless. ?
r. Holloway then suggested the Brewer's r
Lung Restorer as a last resort. I sent for a &
bottle and gave her a dose. I found that
she could retain it on her stomach and
after about the third dose, I began to

I continued the medicine regularly, and "by I &
the time she liad taken two bottles, she
was able to walk about the house.. She is j
now in better health than she has enjoyed ?
for several years. I believe that Lung *
Restorer saved her life. We have a family
of six children, some of them grown."
Mr. Herndon's postoffice is Yaiesville,
Upson county, Ga.. He is a thoroughly
reliable man in every particular.
