i whether in favor of or opposed to the

Forest Fires.?Onr exchanges report
an unusually large number of
forest fires lately. They are doubtless
brought about by clearing up-lands.
Wj are not advised to what extent

in this particular. But it seems
to us that everything ought to be |
done that could be done to prevent'
these conflagrations, so destructive to I
the interests of our farmers.

hour she dropped down suddenly I

Where They Stopped and How They Spent

the members of the Gordon Light Infantry
had been anticipating their trip
to Charleston, and when on Mondaylast
they made their appearance on our
1 streets, dressed in their handsome uniforms
and with their knapsack strapped
to them, a determination to have a
jolly time could be seen on the face of
every member. A handsome car for
their use was attached to the regular
train on that day, which v.as soon
occupied and the party speeding their
way to the City by the Sea. Arriving
at Columbia, it was found that the
special train carrying the two Columbia
companies had just left, so the car
of the Gordons and that of the Catawba
Rifles, of Rock Hill, were attached
to another special train of the South
Carolina Railway. The time between

aiuMhe forming of new acquaintances,
with an occasional pong to liven up
those who had a tendency to napping, j
Arriving in Charleston at ten o'clock
the company was met by a staff officer
who conducted them to the Silcox j
building, which was the headquarters
for most of the visiting companies.
Alter relieving themselves of their
baggage most of the members scattered
to take a stroll through the streets
and view the sights of the city by gas
light. In the morning the visiting
companies were formed under command
of Col. J. Q. Marshall, of the
Palmetto Regiment, and marched to
the Battery where the procession was
formed. Promptly at 12 o'clock the
procession had been formed w;th the i
Gordons in the front, the position of;
honor, by virtue of being Company A,
and the line of march taken np for
Marion Square where the unveiling
ceremonies would take place. The
Military was under command of Gen.
Richbourg, of Columbia. Upon the
arrival of the procession at the monument,
the military was dismissed. The
Hon. L. Q. C. Lamar delivered the
oration of the day, which was a masterly
effort. The remainder of the
day was spent in looking around the
city. On Wednesday most of the
members visited Sullivan's Island,
Fort Smr.ter and other places of interest
in and around the city. Thursday
morning the company bid farewell to
their quarters and the historic city and
lefc for "home, sweet home." Soon
after leaving, Lieutenant Wright of
the Governor's Guards, who was on
tho train, telegraphed his company at
Columbia to prepare a reception for
the Gordons on fheir arrival in the
Capital City. The Richland Volunteers,
who always know how to do the
nice thing at the proper time, had al-1
ready made preparations for entertain- I

thus were the Governor's Guards cut
out of what they expected to do. Upon
the arrival Capt. Newnham and a number
of the Volunteers were at the train
to welcome the Gordons for their
short stay in the city. Beaded by a
drum corps the company marched up
to main street from the Union depot,
and up main street to the armory of the
Volunteers. There a bountiful repast
was in waiting prepared by caterer
Heitsch, with plenty of nourishment
of a liquid nature to wash it down and
good cigars to cool off on. Col. Marshall
in a neat speech welcomed the
company, and In fitting terms Capt.
Jordan responded, after which full justice
was done to the "spread," but
without any manifest decrease of the
supply. Gen. Richbourg, Col. Marshall,
Gen. Metts, Capts. Xewnham
and Jones, and a number of other
rrftntlomon with a
full turnout of the Volunteer?, were
untiring in their efforts to make the
short stay of the Gordons a pleasant
With a sincerc regret to leave such
kind hospitality, tbe Gordons, accompanied
by Captain Jfewnham and
others, took up the march for the
C. C. & A. depot, which was reached
just in time for the north-bound train.1
We cannot leave the account of the J
time spent in the capital without say- i
ing that the yfForts of the military)
were most heartily appreciated, and i
that the Gordons hope to have a time
in which to show more fully their
appreciation. Speech-making and
songs were the order of the day between
Columbia and "Winnsboro, in
which all joined with a hearty good will.
Arriving at home the company was
marched to their armory and dismissed.

IT JEMS FJtOSI JBCALSELZTILZE.
Messrs. Editors: That section of
county lying between Cool Branch and
Broad River has passed through several
seasons of trying afflictions within
the last few years. More recently
several families have passed through
a severe ordeal ot thyphoid fever.
Mr. "VV. R. Boulware's family has been
severely afflicted. Two of his children
first took the fever. It is hoped
that they are out of danger. One of
his oldest daughters, Miss Fanny, a
girl nearly grown, died and was
buried on the 19th April. At the time
of her death aua 111 ine same room .
Mrs. Bouhvare, possibly worn down
by constant watching and anxiety, lay
critically ill. On the L;Gth we laid the
mortal remains of the devoted mother
near beside those of the loving daugher.
Mrs. Boulware was a member of
the Cool Branch Church. She ex

Fountain will be here, and then to
'ater the best, the nicest and the c:
pressed reliance upon Christ as her
Saviour. She w:is truly a faithful
mother and wife, and her absence'will
darken her home with sorrow. Mr.
| Boulware deserves and receives the
i sympathy of his neighbors.
! The truth is the people of this comI
munity are unusually kind and
! thouhtful of another in aillietion.
! Many of them are poor in this world's
. goods, hut do not forget these Chris|
I I hope that I am not crossing the
bounds of propritv when I mention
their kindness to an industrious man,
who lias been enfeebled by this cruel
lever for fuily two mouths, and who
al.>o was maimed during that cruel and
most needless cf all wars. Ilis neighbors
employed and are paying the
very best hand They could find, put
him in hi.s farm and propose to keep
him there until the crop is safe, or
; the owner can inkc his place.
Sadly indeed would Mrs. J. F. V.
Legg be missed among her neighbors
, whenever there is trouble or suffering.
She is to be seen carrying re;
frcshments, comfort and prayer.
Many sre the aching and dyiug pillows
she has softened. Her neighbors
know of these things, and mean
and ungrateful indeed would they be
! if they failed to love "Aunt Lind,"
; Of conrsc all know the worth Capt.
| Legg has ever been to his community
| and church.
Dr. C. C. Estes does the practice
! for the community referred to. lie
1 has had some very severe cases, and
I as a rule has been exiremely fortunate.

growing in the esteem of the families
wnere he works.
The same tribute ot respect and
confidence can be paid to Dr. C. Iiabb,
who is the physician in the Feastervillc
country. Dr. Iiabb is a sale,
solid man, and deserves all the work
he can do.
Dr. C. N. Ilough, the warm-hearted
and popular young physician at Ilalsellviiie,
has been quite ill, but is now
able to attend to his practice.
Some captious reader may charge
your correspondent with handing out
"taffy.'-' I feel that all I have written
is deserving. When i attended Mrs.
Boulware's funeral and saw sj many
eyes swelled and reddened by loss of
sleep and shedding tears of sympathy
a.id grief, . felt that something akin
to goodness still lingered in the human
heart. It is under the inspiration of
this feeling I pen this letter. So far
as doctors arc concerned they belong
to a noble profession, and as a rule
are the most over-worked and underpaid
class of men we have.
On Thursday the 21st it was my
good pleasure to officiate at the marriage
of Mr. L. C. Feaster, of Fairfield
county, and Miss Xaimie Williams, of
Chester county. Our best wishes
attend this newly married pair.
