Cathcart, a son of the iate Charles
Cathcart, was attending to a gin on
Friday, lie met with a very severe accident.
His right hand was caught in
the saws, and two fingers were so
severely cnt that they had to be amputated.
Mr. Cathcart also Received
severe cuts on the same hand, and on
I his arm and face. Fortunately, the
i band connecting the gin with the en;
gine slipped off, and the machine was
: stopped. But for this Mr. Cathcarfs
injuries must have been very serious,
if not dangerous. We hope his wounds
may soon be entirely healed.

conveniently and tastily remodelled,

Madame Rumor has it. It is said that
there are more marriages daring a
year of short crops than any other
time. I heard a yonng groom recently
explain it by saying that the youn<jr
people then have more time to attend
to such matters. It is often, doubtless,
a God-send to the poor preacher,
and is a proyidential indication of
sympathy for the depleted, flabby condition
of his pocket-book. I have
good reasons for believing that it frequently
comes just in time to meet a
case of pinchin necessity.

OUR CAMPAIGN ]}IEETl5fb-~^^
The Red-Shirt Democrats of Fairfield Welcome
the State Canvassers-A Very Fine
Satnrday last was the day set by the1
State Democratic Executive Committee
for the public meeting at Winnsboro.
Notice had been duly given to
the Club3, through The News and
Hkuald, and the Clubs in town had
made due preparation for the occasion.
There was quite a display of national
flags and red flannel about the different
store?, those of Messrs. A. Williford
& Co. and Mr. J. M. Beatv being
particularly noticeable. From Mr.
Beaty's store across to the Winosboro
Hotel hung a streamer, on which were
the words-*-"Fairfield Welcomes You/'
Just south of this hung an immense
banner, contributed for the occasion
by the "Court House Ring", on one
side of which is an excellent likeness
of Governor Thompson, with this in
scription: "The Supremacy and
Honesty of Our Good Government
Shall be Maintained and Perpetuated.
1876-1S84." On the other side vf the
banner were equally good likenesses
of Grover Cleveland and Thos. A.
Hendricks, with the words?"Our
Choice for President and Vice-President."
The Clubs .came into town very
promptly and, considering all the circnmstances,
in very good numbers.
The procession was formed on the College
green, Messrs. W. H. Kerr, ?. W.
Aiken, J, W. Smart, A. M. Wallace and
TC. E. Ellison actii>g as marshals.
Headed by the Crosbyville Cornet
Baud, under Capt. J. Buuyan Crosby,
the procession moved down Congress,
street to the Winnsboro H'jtel, where
it was joined by the speakers of the
day and other gentlemen, in carriages.
The column then moved to the grove
in rear of Col. Eion's residence, where
the speaking was appoiuted to take
place. The stand w as tastefully ornamented
with the national colors, and
with flags containing the names of the
Democratic nominees in the national
f.nntpsf. Seats were Drovided for the
When the crowd was "pattered
around the stand the meeting was caTP
ed to order by Major Woodward, who
announced that the proceedings would
be opened with prayer by the Rev.
A. H. Lester, of the Methodist Church.
Major Woodward their delivered a
short speech, setting .forth the issues
involved in the present campaign, and
the duty of the Democracy in the
crisis. Major Woodward was loudly
cheered as well on rising to speak as
at the close of his remarks.
After music by the band Major
Woodward introduced, as the first
speaker of the day,
as the first speaker. Governor Hampton
advanced to the front of the stage
and immediately received such a
tumultuous and prolonged greeting as
was never before seen accorded to
any public man, including even himself.
The crowd did all the speaking
for a minute or more, and resumed its
demonstrations as often as lie attempted
to make a beginning, until Major
Woodward signed them to desist.
Governor Hampton gracefully responded
to the great compliment tendered
him and began his address by
saying that if the people of Fairfield
should vote as they halloed there
would be no need for any other county
in South Carolina to vote at.all. lieminding
his hearers of the years of
humiliation and shame through which
South Carolina passed, between '68
and '76, of the alien and scalawag
robbers that had disgraced the government,
oppressed the people, and prostituted
every public trust to their own
criminal jpurposes, he expressed the
hope and belief that the people of
Fairfield and of the State would never
permit a return of such evils, or of the
men who were responsible for them.
The present financial condition of the'
State, tbe character of all ihe State
officers? executive, legislative and judicial?was
shown in bright contrast,
and the duty of sustaining and defending
Home Rule, and how that duty
can best be performed, were clearly
indicated. Governor Hampton was
particularly and justly severe in his
denunciation of the so-called Independents,
whom he characterized as
allies of the Radical party and the
worst enemies of South Caroliua.
They do not and cannot hope to be
successful in their* pretensions and
their efforts can only result in benefit
to the Radical party' and to the injury
of the State. The election of a Democratic
President was shown to be neGessaiy
to the peace and prosperity of the
fjfitrornnf Wmrmf/in rJoclftrpr?
his deliberate opinion that Cleveland
will fee the elected, that unlike Tilden,
he will claim and take his seat in any
event, and that he will bring back the'
Government of the United States to
its proper position^; home and abroad.
Governor Hampton closed his address,
which was as ardent and eloquent
a* any he delivered si* years
agot with an appeal to the people of
Fairfield to do their whole diitv in the
pending important contesi, and the
response of his hearers was as assuring
as he could have desired.
Senator H. A. Gaillard introduced
the next speaker,
col. war. h. perry,
who was greeted with enthusiastic
cheering.' As Col. Perry was about
to opep his remarks, Major Woodward
came forward, and told the Red-shirts,
if they thought Coj. Perry could beat
Dave Feaster, to halloo juid pell him
so. They all halloed and told hjui so
in loud and convincing tones, and one
voice anuounced cheerily and confidently
that anybody could beat Dave
Feaster, Col. Perry reviewed Blaine's
public record apd. that of the Republican
party at proper length, presented
some striding ngures oeanng upon tne
I iniqritoys discriminations" of the exj
isling tariff, ancj. warned his apdience
~ . -
against over-confidence in the preseni
canvass, which is to decide questions
of snch moment to the people of South
Carolina. The Independents do not
hope to carrv the State. They are,

The remits of their success were
strongly depicted. Logan and Senator
Sherman1 have said that the South
ought to be Republican, and that if it
is not so it ought to be legislated into
Republicanism. If their party be successful
they will attempt to carry such
legislation into effect, and the South
will have to go through another term
[ of reconstruction. The only way to
, prevent such a curse is by electing
Cleveland, and thereby burying the
Republican party beyond the* hope of
COL. JOHN* E. BACON,
the next speaker, dwelt in turn upon
the importance of the present election,
which, he said, is to decide whether
the people shall retain the right of
self-government which they won at
'"taTktow?rr"ftS^^ returned from
New York, where he has spenwa^j^;
two months, and has been in dailj
attendance upon the National Demo
cratic Committee, he felt justified ii
faying from information there receivec
that the election of Cleveland anc
Hendricks is assured. This, he said
is the honest belief ot the members o
thai committee, and what he bad beer
commissioned to say for them to-day
The opposition, however, is led b}
one of the boldest, most brilliant anc
most unscrupulous men in the country
who has at Ms back a thoroughly dis
ciplined force led by 100;000 office
holders, and with the United States
treasury at his command to supplj
money for the corrupt purposes of his
campaign. He and his followers an

that they will not make a desperate
fight to retain their hold oil office anc
the public plunder. Their success wil
be our ruin, and the only safety of the
State and of the country lies in theii
defeat. Col. Bacon closed with ar
earnest appeal to the people of Fairfield
to labor to preserve the liberty sc
hardly won in 1876.
GEN. JNO. D. KENNEDY,
the last speaker, presented the National
issues involved in the contest, and
demonstrated the falsity and danger oi
the proposition too often heard thai
there is little or no difference between
the Democratic and Republican parties.
He sketched the history-of the
two parties from the beginning of each,
and showed their differences in strong
aud conclusive terms. The Republican
parly has never been a National
navfv If- tttoo f?rknr><iixrr*rl in cPAHnnftl
hatred, nurtured by -war, and has
thriven upon corruption. It has outlived
the purposes of its organization
and now has no higher end or aim
than public office and public plunder.
Gen. Kennedy was warmly and deservedly
congratulated by many persons,
including the other speakers, at
the close of his address, which is generally
regarded as an unusually able
and eloqueyt oue.
Mr. John C. Sheppard was on the
list of speakers, but, unfortunately,
was not well enough to leave his
room. This was a source of general
regret, as Mr. Sheppard is a most attractive
speaker. On the occasion oi
his last appearance in Fairfield, he was
forced to speak a second time, in response
to the hearty calls of his auditory.
At the close of General Kennedy's
speech, which was deservedly applauded,
repeated calls were made for Major
"Woodward, but that gentleman declined
to make a speech. He complimented
the Red-shirts upon their fine

The gentleman "who outlines his case
jelow is a man considerably advanced in
ife, and i? noted for his sterling integrity.
ELis po^offic^ is Yatesville, Upson county,
mlr. john peabson's statement.
In the spring of 18821 was attacked witli . '-Vja^9
i very bad cougb, which continued to
irow worse until fall, when I got so weak
Shat I could not get about. I tried a great V.
nany kinds of medicine but continued to
Trow worse. I was notified that I had
consumption and would probably die. Dr.
Elolloway finally told me to try Brewer's
Lung Restorer."They sent to Ward's Store
md got a bottle and'I commenced taking
t right away. After taking two or three
loses, I Ivejn.ii to improve and by the time
[ had used up one bottle I was able to get
>n my feet agafin. I am now in excellent lealth.
I am confident that the Lung Restorer
saved my life and my neighbors are
)f the same opinion. It is the oesfc Long .?
Etemedy ever made in my opinion. Dr.
a. promised me that he woula write to the
nanufacturers and teil them of the wonlerful
cure it made in my case.

Early in November, 1881, while sewing
>n the machine, my wife was taken with a
severe pain ia her side, which was soon
'ollowea by hemorrhages from her Ions;
md a severe cough, Fey.er commenced,
;he could neither eat nor sleep, and in a few
veeks she was reduced to a living skeleton. P*
attending physician told me that he
nought one of ner lungs was entirely gone. '
>he could not retain the most delicate .
lonrishment on her stomach. I then
igreed with Dr. Sullivan, my family physi:ian,
to call Dr. Holloway in consultation.
rhey made a final, examination of the
jatient and pronounced the case hopeless.
3r. Holloway then suggested the Brewer's
Lung Restorer as a last resort. I sent for a -'? ??
>ottle and gave her a dose, X found that
she could retain it on her stomach and .. JgjgaS
ifter about the third-dose, X began to ?
lotice some improvement in her condition.
l continued the medicine regularly, and by - he
time she had taken two bottles, she
ivas a"ble to walk about the house. She is
iow in better health than she has enjoyed
'or several years. I believe that Lang
Igstorer saved her life. We have a family
z children, some of t.hpTn crown." '
