Why Not.?It has been suggested
that some of our farmers near town
might find it remunerative to plant
watermelons for market. With early

is said that they may be produced here
by the 10th of July. It is admitted
that our soil is very well adapted to
their growth. We must confess therefore,
that it does look a little strange
that they may be cultivated in the low
country, shipped here at considerable
cost and sold at a p rofit, if there is no
money In it for our own farmers.
Besides our home raised melons are
preferred not only because of their

Ax Arrest.?We have just been informed
by a prominent citizen of Fairfinld
th.af TJmi Collins, one of the best
colored citizens of our conuty, was
i arrested at his home in the western
portion of the county on Tuesday last
by a United States deputy marshal for
selling whiskey without a license. The
facts as we gathered them are as follows:
Some three years ago, through
the influence of some noted Radicals
of the county, a warrant was issued for
the arrest of Collins. It seems that he
tol-Q on o^rii'o T\nt*f in

ical politics, and his enemies took out
the warrant without any foundation.
"We suppose the new marshal is clearing
up business in his office and the warrant
which lias been in the office for
three years was served. Our informer !
says there is no foundation for the
charge and we hope that the District !
Attorney will see proper to discharge
him without trial, seeing that is is a ;
trumped up thing.

calling special attention to it. It con- !
tains, first, an analysis of the Federal j
Government, showing at one view the

beginning and close of the terms of
these officials, and leading historical
events that occurred in each administration.
These are classified properly
and printed on colors that indicate the
politics of the party in power. Second,
a diagram of the history of political
parties, that shows the outline history
of the parties by colored streams
represented as flowing from left to
right. Third, geographical and commercial
information presented to the
eye by beautiflly colored plates that
furnish facts without taxing the mind
by the reading of details. The map is
designed to give instantaneous information
on governmental and political
matters, so as to avoid the looking up
nf rprnrds to ascertain desired facts. I
It is highly colored -and is an ornament
to a room in addition to its intrinsic
worth. "VVe recommend it alike to

The Fairfield division of the Survivors
of the Sixth Regiment S. C. V.,

convened nere on ?aiuraay, .rresiueiii
Woodward in the chair. The chief
matter of discussion was the reunion
of the Regiment which is to take place
on the battlefield of Seven Pines, on the
sixth of August next. Col. Rion read
a letter from Secretary Buchanan
asking that a committee of two be
appointed by the Fairfield division to
act in conjunction with a like committee
which had been appointed by the
Chesaer division to so to Richmond in
advance of the Regiment to make all
necessary arrangements for the reunion.
A motion was then carried
requesting the committee appointed by
the Chester division to maKe all such
arrangements. A resolution was next
offered "that committees be appointed
to ascertain and report by August 1st
the names of all persons who will join
in the expedition to Richmond. The
I Hail road fare for the round trip being
fixed at $5.75 per capita. All persons
consenting to go will be required to
} pay the amount of said fare to the sec|
retarv of the association on or before
the 1st of August next, the amount
to be refunded in case the expedition
fails for any cause." The resolution
was carried, and the following gentlemen
were appointed: Feasterville,
J. K. Stevenson; Salem, J. L. Richmond;
MonticelJo, R. C. Arnette;
Oakland, D. H. Robertson; Gladden's

It was then moved that the meeting

Chester, and the Gordon Light Infantry,
the "Winnsboro Cornet Band
and the Sandy River Band, an invitation
to accompany the Survivors to
Seven Pines, this motion was carried.
Next followed a motion that a committee

adjourned to meet again on the 11th

Col. Rion informs us that the train

the 5th August, stopping at Chester
and other points for Survivors.
The train arrives at Seven Pines at

Messrs. Editors: Your journal comcs

its worth. Cut it has been a long time
since it was favored (?) with an item
from this interesting niche of old Fair

there should come something significant
and valuable from any place
called Monticello, so if our quill fails

Some of the farmers are leaving the

which the reaper has given duty to

a very creditable school might be supported,
despite the irregularities consequent
upon the necessities of the
people since the war. The late teachers,
Mr. and Mrs. Scott, served the
people with a patient fidelity worthy
of a gracious return of gratitude, and
the present teacher, who took up the
school after a long pause, has a reputation
for capability and efficiency to be
disputed by none worthy of an opinion.
He has been faithful in the discharge
of his duties during the past
session, and his progressive method of
teaching shows results that prove its

Another Virginia Sensation.
There has been considerable excitement
for several days past in Henry
county, Va., in the Vicinity of Martinsville,
over a mystery involved in the
death of Mrs. U-. Li. btone, Jr., who
was found dead last Monday and soon
thereafter was buried. Suspicion of
foul play being aroused, the body was
exhumed and a coroner's investigation
begun. An autopsy showed that deceased
was in a perfectfuly healthy
condition. A large number of witnesses
were examined, and on Saturday
the coroner's jury readered a verdict
that Mr?. Stone came to her death
from cruel and brutal treatment at the
hands of her husband aud his father,
fj T. Si* "Rntli fathnr flnrl snr?
have been committed to jail to await
the action of the grand jury. The
evidence shows that the deceased was
tortured to death by the most shameful
and unnatural treatment.
?"Facts are stubborn things," aud
sufferers from chills and fever generally
find their complaint a very stubborn*
fact, until they commence the use
of Ayer's Ague Cure. That medicine
eradicates the noxious poison from the
system5 and invariably cures even the
worst cases. * *
An End to Bone Scraping:,
Edward Shepherd, of Harrisburg,
111., say: "Having received so much
benefit from Electric Bitters, I feel it
my duty to let suffering humanity
i know it. Have had a rmininsr sore on
my leg for eight years; my doctors i
told me I would have to have the bone !
scraped or leg amputated. I used instead
three bottles of Electric Bitters
and seven boxes Bucklen's Arnica!
Salve, and my leg is now sound and
well." Electric Bitters are sold at
fifty cents a bottle, and Bucklen's
Arnica Salve at 25 cents per box by

A Marvelous Story
TOLD Ili TWO LITTERS.
FROM THE SON:
" Gentlemen: My father resides at Glover,
Vt. He has been a great sufferer from Scrof
ula, and the inclosed letter will tell you what
a marvelous effect
Ayer s Sarsaparilla
has bad in his esse. I think his blood must
have contained the humor for at least ten
years; but it did not show, except in the form
of a scrofulous sore on the -wrist, until about
five years ago. From a few spots which appeared
at that time, it gradually spread so as
to cover his entire body. I assure you he wa*
terribly afflicted, and an object of pity, when
he began using your medicine. Now, there are
few men of his age who enjoy as good health j
as he has. I could easily name fifty persona
who would testify to the facts in liia case.
Yours truly, W. 1L Phillips."
FROM THE FATHER: pleasure and
a duty for nie to state to you the benefit I
have derived from the use of
Ayeri SarsapariHa. |
Six months ago I was completely covered with
a terrible humor and scrofulous sores. Tha
humor caused an incessant and intolerable i
itching, aud the skin cracked so as to causa i
tho blood to flow in many places whenever
I moved. My sufferings were great, and my
lifo a burden. I commenced the use of tha
Sarsaparilla in April last, and have used
U regularly since that time. My condition
began to improve at once. The sores have
all healed, and I feel perfectly well in every !
rcspect?being now able to do a good day's J
work, although 73 years of ago. Many inquire
what has wrought such a cure in my case, and
I tell them, as I have here tried to tell you,
Ayeb's Sarsaparilla. Glover, VL, Oct.
21,1S82. Yours gratefully,
Avzr'b Sarsapartt.la cures Scrofula
and all Scrofulous Complaints, Erysipelas,
Eczema, Ringworm, Blotches,
Bnfffl. TiiiiiaW. And TlmnHnwi of
the Skin. It clears the blood of all impurities,
aids digestion, stimulates the action of
the botrels, and thus restores vitality and
strengthens the whole system.
