night, the 21st inst. The deceased
was the wife of Mr, J. M. Owings, of
the S3lem neighborhood, and a daughter
of Mr. M. II. Berry, of Columbia,
S. C. She was at the time of her
death about thirty years of age. Mrs.
Owine's had been sick with typhoid
fever fer three weeks or more, and
though her death was not wholly unexpected
yet it was sad and shocking.
She leaves behind her a husband, and
three children of tender years and a
host of feithful friends to do honor to
her memory and to mourn her untimely
death. By her many estimable
traits of character she had warm
friends wherever she had gone, and

Fire at Kidgeway.?A correspondent
of the News and Courier, writing
from Kidgeway, July 23, says: "Last
night about 11 o'clock the quiet of our
little town was broken by the burning
of the blacksmith shop of Mose James,
colored. Nearls' all the citizens were
asleep when the alarm was given and
excitement ran high for a short time,
women and children screaming for fear
that the town might be burned, the
shop being in the thickly-built part of
the village with no means at hand to
quench the flames except water buckets
and wet blankets in case the fire
should spread. But for the calm night
with light southern breeze Ridgeway
would probably have been destroyed.

warm reception and the attention
shown as while in their city on the
18th and 19th of June last.
Besolvedy further, That it is the
sense of this company that some fit
acknowledgment be made to the Independents
for the kindness extended us
while in Colombia by the officers and
members, collectively and individually,
of said company. Therefore, we
do now tender them the warmest
thanks and our heartfelt appreciation
of the generous and attentive selfdenial
in giving us the use of their

engine-nouse, ana ouicr assisuiuue,
without which we feel that our stay in
their city would have been alike barren
of enjoyment and of success.
Resolved, farther, That a copy of
these resolutions be forward io the
Chief of the Fire Department, also to
the President of the Independent Fire
Eugine Company of the city of Columbia;
and that they be published iu

Dancikg Soikee.?Miss Thompson's
dancing school was closed on Thursday
last with a very successful and
largely attended dancing soiree. This
entertainment was given in the Thespian
Hall and nine o'clock was the
hour appointed for the programme to
begin. The ball by that time was wen
filled with interested spectators, to saynothing
of the host of couples on hand
for the dance. When all had assembled,
at the ring of the bell the pupils
were arranged in order for the grand
march, with Miss Thompson and her
partner at the head of the column.
Just at this stage of the programme it
had been arranged by the thoughtful
pupils of the school to have presented
IU I Lie UttJLlULUg misucos uvmg twuiuwnial
of their regard for her. A. beautiful
silver cap bad been selected for her
and it was presented to her in behalf
of the school by C. A. Douglass, Esq. ,
Miss Thompson responded very happily
to the remarks made in its presentation.
The dancing was kept up
until two o'clock, and both the dancers
and spectators pronounce the soiree a
very pleasant occasion. This entertainment
closed the session of Miss
Thompson's dancing school, and it is

A Sad Death.?Information was
received on Friday last of the death of
Mr. Edward W. Chaplin, of Savannah,
Ga., under peculiarly sad circumstances.
On Thursday morning he
was bathing at Tybee, in company
with two little boys. One of the little
fellows got beyond h^ depth, and
screamed, whereupon Mr. Chaplin
promptly went to his rescue. Causing
[ the boy to place his hands on his
shoulders, Mr. Chaplin made a des
perate effort to reach the shore. Bat
his bur-den was too great, and he
sank beneath it, never to rise again
alive. The boy was washed ashore by
a heavy wave and was soon properly
cared for. The two boys then gave
the alarm, and in about an hour the
Douy ui uie urave yuuug iu?u >vas uiacovered.
Every effort was made towards
resuscitation, bnt to 110 purpose.
Mr. Chaplin was twenty-four
years of age, and had lived for several
years past in Savannah, where he was
universally esteemed. He was the
son of the late Marion Chaplin, of Beaufort,
and the stepson of Mrs. A. E.
Chaplin, now of this place. He spent
his earlv bovhood In Winnsboro. and
[ made a pleasant impression upon
everybody. His death was indeed a
sad one, brave and noble though the
act that caused it.
Loss by Fire.?Intelligence has been
received here of the burning of the
gin and mill-house of Mr. John S.
Douglass at Albion, in this county, on
Monday afternoon, the 21st iust. The
building took fire in the afternoon
about two o'clock, and at the time no
one was nearer than two hundred
yards from the scene of the fire. The
fire was no doubt accidental, and Mr.
Douglass attributes it to sparks from

of the hands the roof of the engine

was discovered to be in a blaze. Vig

Orous efforts were made to extinguish
the' fire, and failing in this, to save
valuable articles of property under the
roof, but nothing of consequence was
rescued. The total loss is estimated at
$2,000, none of which was covered by
insurance. One hundred bushels of
wheat, the running gear of the mill,
gin-head and other valuable property

gine was damaged to the extent ot
two-thirds of its valne. A remarkable
circumstance in connection with this
fire is the fact that the screw scarcely
twenty feet from the large gin-house
was saved harmless.
A Bold Burglary.?Some parties
as yet unknown committed a very bold
burglary several nights since upon the
premises of Mr. "W. E. Smith, a few
miles from this nlace. Shortlv after
dark upon the evening of the burglary,
Mr. Smith was sitting in his front
piazza alone (the house is occupied
only by Mr. Smith), and hearing some
one coming down the stairway close
by the door, he tamed in his chair,
and instantly he was accosted by some
nnp with tlif> command that he leave
the premises. Mr. Smith was taken
very much by surprise and was at a .
great disadvantage, not even having a
pocket-knife on his person or a firearm
of any character any where upon
the premises. The unknown party
was effectually disguised?had a quilt
wrapped around his person and his
face muffled. He was no doubt armed
to the teeth, and Mr. Smtth very wisely
left the house aud went in search of
a weapon, and returning within five .
minutes everything was quiet, and the
party or parties had departed from the
premises. A thorough examination ,
of the evidences in and around the ;
piace establishes these facts: That the j
parties entered the house from the ]
piazza in the back part of the house,
got 011 the roof aud entered an up-stairs i
room, where a considerable quantity ]
of wheat was scattered out. The con- <
dition of the wheat, 011 examination, j
shov^ that "some portion of it was ]
stolen, but under the circumstances it <
is impossible to make any estimate as j
to the quantity taken. It seems that J
Mr. Smith had the day before lent, a j
negro on his place both his knife and ,
pistol, and this accounts for his being j
unarmed at such a critical moment, j
Suspicion attaches to several parties, j
and vigorous effort3 will be made to j
find out the guilty parties and have
them brought to trial. 1

TOUXG MEX IN POLITICS.
Messrs. Editors: Since some mention
is being made of the wisdom in
sending yonng men to the Legislature
I desire to call attention to a few facts
which may insist in arriving at a con
elusion, or which may at least go to
show that the experiment of placing
public trusts in the hands of young
men has not ahcays proved disastrous
and.particularly so in those brauches
of the Government which offer to taleted,
indnstrions and patriotic young
men the opportunity of serving their
fellow citizens with credit to themselves
and houor to their country. Beginning
with a rcccnt date in the history
of our State which is fresh in the memory
of all, even of these youug men,
we -find on the floor of the . historic
"Wallace House" seats held by young
men whose names already occupy high
positions in the list of our distinguised
men. We find there our present Lieutenant
Governor at the age of
twenty-four years, who, afterwards
was elected Speaker of the House,

Since then the legislative journals are
full of instances of the valuable services
rendered the State by young men.
Of the present House, the Speaker is a
young man, the chairman of the committee-on
ways and meaus is a young
man. who may soon receive a con-1
gre^ional nomination. And Ander-1,
con couuty, in the person of yon tig
Murray, furnishes one of the leaders of
of the House.
The history of our late'Iate war furnishes
proof of the unwisdom of the
policy of proscribing a man on account
of his "youthful years." Kershaw
county contributed to the army of the
Confederacy a gallant soldier who at
the a^e of twenty-two years, held a
brigadier's commission. "Wheeler wa?

of any special candidate, but
merelv to show that some of our most
distinguished men have commenced
early in life to serve their country. .
Messrs. Editors: I observe in a
recent issue of your paper a communication
by "Democrat." Thanking him
for the complimentary terms in which
he has .seen fit to present my name,
! among others, to the Democratic voters
of Fairfield, I beg leave to decline to
be a candidate for the nomination.
Farmingtou, July 28, 1884.
A Physician's Testimony.
I was called to see Mr. John Pearson,
I who was confined to his bed with -what ap-.
peared to consumption or tne worst iorm.
As all of his family had died with that
dread disease (except his half brother) his
" death was regarded as certain and soon.
After exhausting all the remedies, I finally
as a'4ast resort sent for a bottle of Brewer's
Lungltestorer, and it acted like magic.
He contisu&dthe use of it for some time
and has been fully restored to health. So
far as I could discover, he had consumption,
and Brewer's Lung Restorer saved
his life. J. 0. Holloway, M. D.,

CAPT. R. W. BONNER,
A WELL-KNOWN CITIZEN OF MACON.
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
physician had pronounced *her case hopeless.
I went immediately over, and I felt
that 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 the
disease. This 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 the 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 ancr health, and is
to-day perhaps in better health than ever
before. She is subject to colds, but a few
swallows of Brewer's Lung Restorer
(which she is never without) relieve her
immediately. I consider her restoration to
perfect health a miracle, for which she is
indebted to Brewer's Lung Restorer My
son is almost a monomaniac on the subjec
of Brewer's Lung Restorer and never lets
an opportunity pass where he thinks such
u medicine would be required, tliat he does
noi speak ol it in most glowing terms. Not
long since a Northern gentleman on his
way to Florida heard of this cure and was
induced by my 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 on my little son, who
was troubled with lung or throat affection,
pronounced by one physician, consump
tion. It acted -wonderfully on him, and by
the time 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 tne Lung Restorer with me.
