After runding about half a mile he
was overtaken [by the constable
who decided it would seem to pick
him up without bloodshed if possible.
The prisoner didn't appreciate the
kinduess, however, for as he found
himself a second time in the clutches
of the law, he proceeded to bite and
scratch something after the fashion of
a hyena. A little well directed pummeling
from the officer brought him to
his senses and they resumed their
journey. He was committed by the
trial justice to await trial at the next

The Charlotte Institute.--We
would call attention to the advertisement
of th? Charlotte Female Institute,
published in another column.
This is one of the best colleges for
young ladies to be found in the South.
We think we cannot do better than to
reproduce the following, written byProf.
R. Means Davis, while he
was connected with The News and
"The Rev. Wm. R. Atkinson, the
Principal of the Charlotte Institute for
Young Ladies, ,graduated with distinguished
honors at the South Carolina
College, and since then he has assiduously
devoted himself to the acquisition
of knowledge. It was the good

great inducements to persons wishing
to perfect the education of their daughters."
Frank Leslie's Scxday Magazine
for August is a bright and sparkling
summer number. The leading article
is "American Missionaries in Mexico,"
anent whom some hard things are put
down. If the writer, Emily Pierce, is
sure of her facts, it is not a creditable
record. Another of the series ot Uhnst s
Parables, and two more of the Sacred
Musicians, appear in this number.
"The First Missions in California,"
with its illustrations, is a very interesting
article; and "From Canterbury
to Dover," by G. A. Davis, a delightful
bit of description. Dr. Talmage's
sermon is on "Left-handed Men."
There are three pages of music cL /oted
to a setting of the Te Deum, by D. E.
Hervey. A readable article on Lowell
is accompanied with his portrait and
copious extracts from his poems.\There
is also an article on John Ruskin, with

History" is devoted to King Solomon,
and brings the subject to the end of his
reign. The eccentric Georgia evangelist,
the Rev. Sam Jones, is given a
portrait and biographical sketch; and
there are also portraits of Dean Smith,
of Canterbury, and Bishop Ellicott, both
of the Bible Revision Companies. The
two seslal stories?"Love's Harvest,"

? Young America.
The early development of genius is
characteristic of this country. It manifests
itself in various ways; and
all of this is perhaps natural. The
country is new, the aveunes to
wealth and distinction are open
to all, and the dogma of order
and more conservative communities
that wisdom and frosty locks
are inseparable, does not prevail. On
the contrary, the dictum of the Latin
logiciaus that the exception proves the
rule is admitted in all of its entirety.

States; and young men are daily seen

prime minister of England; and his
disiiuguised father, the illustrious

A Hard Fought Case.
The case of the State vs. J. W.
Cainack was heard before Trial Justice
Douglass on Friday last.
The warrant charged the defendant
with enticing away a colored laborer
under contract with another, but
before trial, -.was amended so as to
charge the kindred offense.of hiring a
laborer, knowing such laborer to be
under contract with another.
A jury was empaneled to try the
issue and the defendant appeared with
counsel and pleaded not guilty. ' On
empaneling the jury, counsel for defendant
entered a challenge to the
whole array and moved to quash the
pannel on the ground that a tri^J by a
jury of six as provided by statute is
not such atrial by jury as is guaranteed
to the accused under the provisions of
the constilntion of 1868.
The motion was overruled and the
case proceeded to trial. The State
introduced the testimony of several
witnesses and among other things
proved that the prosecuting witness on
the 31st day of December, A. D., 1884
bargained with a certain colored
woman for her services and- the
services of her children (whenever
he should call for snch services) during
: the year 1885 and moved the family en
At snch times as these parties were
not needed by prosecuting witness
they were at liberty to work for whom
they pleased. The State closed and
the defense declined to offer any testimony
resting upon the ground that
the Slate had failed to make out its
case; that the evidence failed to estab
lish the relation 01 ianaiora ana
Irborer and that the contract was void
under the statute of frauds.
Tbe jury retired and after a few
moments deliberation returned a verdict
of guilty. Counsel Ifor defendant
made a motion in arrest of judgment
which .was overruled and defendant
gave notice of appeal to the Court of

PICXIC NEAR BIDGEWAT.
Messrs. Editors: It was our happy
privilege on Friday, the 3rd inst., to
attend a picnic given by the patrons
and friends of Mount Hope School to
the pupils of said school. This school
is located near Ridgeway, and presided
over by Miss H. E. Thomas, whose
reputation as a faithful, conscientious
and efficient teacher is known, not
only to the citizens of Fairfield, but
throughout the State. This school
numbers forty-five pupils. Early in
the day the friends and pupils assembled.
The hospitality cf the family,
which is noted, was shown by throwing
open the doors of the residence,
which was occupied by the older persons.
The voting people filled the
basement and yard, amusing them*
selves in different ways. Croquet
appeared to be the favorite game. The
little folks had a play called by them
"Wild Irishman," which they appeared
to enjoy hugely, and which was enjoyed
by some of the seniors who witnessed
At the appointed hour the pupils
were formed into line by Maj. C. E. T.
marched down in military style to the
table, which was placed under tljc
large oaks well protected from the
burning rays of the noonday sun and
which groaned under the weight of
the many nice things prepared by the
good house-wives of the vicinity. On
reaching" the table, the order was
given to file to the right and left. The
pnpils arranged, a blessing asked, and
the order given to help "yourselves.
This order was promptly obeyed by
all parties. Ice lemonade was in demand
which fried Mc knows so weli
how to prepare, and which he served
up so lavishly. Dinner over, the
party scattered* in different directions,
amusing themselves in different ways,
and left when forced to do so by the
evening sun, which warned them that
it was time to start for their respective
places of abode. This picnic will be
long remembered by
Ajt Invited Guest.
TAKING OTHER FOLKS' PAPERS.
Messrs. Editors: Your highly valned
paper is regularly received here and is
read with much interest; not onl^
because it is oar conuty paper, but for
the reason that it contains the best,
latest and most interesting news.
While this is all truejwe have one seri*
ous objection to urge against it, to wit,
it is the too^ easy snbject of involuntary
loan. This objection is of almost
Universal application to newspapers.
The paying Subscriber hardly ever has
an opportunity of reading its contents
until it suits' the convenience of some
sly, habitually, thievish newspaper
borrower to return it to him. If there
is one being just a little more low,
degraded and detestable than another
it is this involuntary borrower. By
"involuntary borrower" I mean the
man who geU your newspaper from
your office in your absence, who never
allows you the privilege of reading

Oh! for some chosen curse, some
hidden thunder of heaven, red with
uncommon wrath, to blast the wretch
who gets his daily information from
his neighbor's stolen newspaper. Such
a man would cheat the devil (newspaper),
and if possible would steal
from his God.
"He who steals my purse-steals trash,
But he who robs me of my newspaper
Takes that which enlightens him not (bemmcp

These fiends incarnate are around
here, and whenever The News and

comes in the absence of the owner they
pounce upon them like harpies.
Please inform us through your columns
how to rid ourselves of these
nuisances . Tell us how to accomplish
it successfully and we will send up the

It seems that Mr. James G. Heron,
one of the County Commissioners, lias
undertaken to manage thing* at the
Poor House, after his own fashion.
On Thursday last lie was there, behaving
in a boisterous and meddlesome
manner, and went so far
as to use violent and insulting language
in the presence of Mrs. McGrady,
the matron of the institution.
Upon Mr. McGrady's requesting him
not to talk in that way to his wife, Mr.
Heron flew in a rage, and undertook
to discharge Mr. McGrady from his
place as Keeper. Mr. and Mrs. McGrady
have left It is due to Mr.
Heron to say that he claims that Mr.

After Mr. McGrady left it seems that
Mr. Heron took charge of the Poor
House himself. He came to Wiinisboro
early on Friday morning, bringing
with "him the keys to the provisionrooms.
In consequence of this proceeding
the inmates had to go without
