A Daring Robbery.?Ou Saturday
evening Mr. George S. Hinnant had
occasion to poll out his wallet on several
occasions. As he was going home
after dark, just after he crossed Alleys
Branch, two negroes came up with
him. One engaged him in conversation
while the other lingered behind.
After asking Mr. Hinnant to allow
him to ride and being refused he came
up and caught hold of him, telling
him that he wanted some of that
money. Being refused the negro pulled
Vum nfF hi? mnlfi and sneeeeded in
robbing him of about eighteen dollars.
This is one of the boldest robberies
we have ever heard ot, and no pains

Death of Mr, J. W. McCaxts.?
Mr. J. William McCants. ef this county,
died at his home on Sunday afternoon.
His health had been failing
for several months past, and within
the past few weeks his declinc was
rapid, and it was apparent that the
end was not far off. The disease that
thus cut short a promising life was a
lorm of consumption. Mr. McCants
was the son of the late Dr. George
L McCants, a well known citizen of
Fairfield District, and was nearly
ihirty-fcur years of age. Ke received
Zhis early education at the Mount Zion
Institute, and afterwards finished the
I course of instruction at King's Mountain
Military School, Yorkviile. In
both these institutions he maintained
an excellent standing, aud enjoyed the
esteem and confidence of teachers and
students alike. He was engaged in
farming, and ranked among our most
intelligent. Drosrressive and successful
a 7 ^ 0 ^ _
planters. Personally, Mr. McCants
was an exceptionally attractive man.
Brave, generous, true to the right, he
combined qualities which went to
make him a good citizen and gave
promise of much usefulness in the
community. Cut off when he had
scarcely reached the prime of his manhood,
his death is a sad one indeed.
Mr. McCants was married to Miss Sue
isoykin JLyles, wdo preceded him to
p the grave in the fall of 1882, leaving
The funeral services were held in
the Methodist Church on Monday afternoon,
conducted by the Rev. G. P.
Watson, and were very largely at'
The State Fair.?The Columbia
fair is always one of the attractions of
the State capital in the fall, and Fairfield
never fails to be well represented.
The exhibition for ISSo will .open on
November 10 and continue for four
days and will be made more attractive
than usual. Besides a grand tourna
ment by the young men of the State,
fireworks, shooting matches, an opportunity
to buy fine stock, either at auction
or private sale, a first-class restaurant
by the ladies of Columbia and
music by a "Boys' Band." The display
of stock of all classes?the practical
exhibits of all improved agricultural
and farm machinery?samples of
an neia crops, togeiner wiui a iuu ana
complete exhibit in the women's department?both
household, fancy and
domestic?will give onr citizens an
opportunity of examining a full exposition
of all the resources of our State
not to be found anywhere outside of
the State fair. The bringing together
once a year of all classes of our citizens?farmers,
mechanics, artisans and
and all professional classes?is having
a marked and healthful effect and is
becoming one of the most interesting
features of our fair. The accommodations
are most ample for all exhibitors.
Power will be furnished when needed
for all machinery. The hotels and
citizens of Columbia will provide
amply for all visitors. Thoroughbred
cattle will be judged by a distinguished
professional judge of thoroughbred
stock. The racing will be under the
management of the Sub-Race Committer
of the Society and will be conducted
more satisfactorily than on any
The Mikado .?It is seldom that the
people of Winnsboro have an opportunity
of witnessing the performance
of the dramas of the day or of seeing
operatic performances of a first-class
order. Through the enterprise of Mr.
J. 0. Boag a splendid opportunity was
afforded the music-loving and theatregoing
people of town to witness the
performance of "The Mikado", a
r*.r?mnnsprl flnH written bv
Messrs. Gilbert & SulliraH. The rendition
of this opera by the Bijou Opera
Company was one of the fiuest that
have ever been given in this town. We
do not claim any merit as a musical
critic, bat we do know a good thing
when we see or hear it, and do not
hesitate to pronounce the performance
on Satnrday night as being exceptionally
fine. Miss Randall's singing of
the song "The Moon and I" was one
of the finest vocal performances we
have ever listened to. "The Bell
Song" by the quartette was magnificent.
If music be a concord of sweet
sounds this song is perfection when,
rendered as it was by the quartette.
The acting of Mr. Thos. Martin as
"KoKo" was very fine; Poo Bah, "Lord
High Everything Else", was inimitable
in his acting, and his mellow voice
was as clear and sweet as the notes of
a bell. We regret that so few of the
citizens of town thonght it worth their
while to turn out to witness this performance.
Mr. Boag informs us that
the company ;viil give us another
opportunity to witness their performance
of the piece next spring on their
return to the North. "We have got
them on our list, and they will be
missed," if they do not keep their
Orange Blossoms and Wedding: Bolls.'
Messrs. Editors: For some time it
has been an open secret that one of
Winnsboro's most promising attorneys
would take a trip to the old North
State for the purpose of bringing back
with him as his wife one of North
Carolina's fairest daughters. On
Wednesday this rumor was confirmed
by the assembling at the depot of a
large number of frieuds to see Mr.
W. L. McDonald off and to bid mm
God speed on the trip which was to have
such a happy termination for him. Mr.
McDonald was accompanied by Messrs.
G. W. Ragsdale, Paul M. Brice, Julian
Elliott, Jos. H. Cummings and Jos. K.
Alston, who had been invited to witness
the pleasing ceremony. The
young lady, Miss Jessie Bell, is a
daughter of Mr. Charles Bell, formerly
a citizen of Fairfield county, but nov?'

at the residence of the
bride's father, the groom and his
friends were welcomed by a number
of relatives and friends bf the bride.
Promptly at eight o'clock the young
couple presented themselves to the
minister, the Kev. J. E. White, who
pronounced them husband and wife.
Mr. White was assisted in the impres
sive ceremony by the Rev. C-has. E,
McDonald. After congratulating the
pair the company betook themselves to
the dining-room where an elegant collation
had been prepared and to which
full justice was done.
On Thursday the bridal party, consisting
of Mr. and Mrs. McDonald,
Miss Eunice Bell, Miss Ellen Reed and
Miss Eunice Mitchell, and Messrs.
Paul M. Brice, G. ~W". Ragsdale, Christopher
Brice and Jos. K. Alston, re
turned to "Winnsboro. A number of
friends had been invited to the residence
of Mrs. M. L. McDonald, the
groom's mother, to welcome the happy
pair to their new home.
The reception was one of the most
brilliant social events which have occurred
In our town for some time.
The large number of handsome pres
cuts receivea. is cue oest evidence 01
the popularity of the young couple.
The change from the old home to the
new is one of the hardest trials that a
young bride is called upon to bear, bul
