Leesyille Institute. ? We have

English and Classical Institute of the
session of 18S6-S7, from the secretary,
Prof. D. B. Busby. The school was
more flourishing last session than at
any time since its foundation, and bids
fair to become one of the foremost in
the State. There were 112 pupils in
attendance last session, representing
three States. Among the number of
the board of trustees, we find the
names of the Hon. M. C. Butler, chairman,
the Hon. W. T. Gary, of Augusta,
and a number of other prominent
?ames. The next session opens on

Meeting of Farmers' Association*.
I ?According to appointment the Fair-'
field Farmers' Association met in the
Court House on Saturday last. Owing
to the very inclement weather and
high water courses there was not a
large attendance. The object of the
meeting was to elect delegates to the
Summer Encampment in Spartanturg
this week. Messrs. T. P. Mitchell,
T. B. McKinstrv and Silas "W. Ruff
were elected to represent the Association.
On motion it was decided to
write President IMcBride, of the South
Carolina College, to address the Association
some ^ime in Sptember. The
meetingjwas very harmonious, and but
for the weather a large crowd would
have been in attendance.
Thk Sanitary Condition of Our
Towx Again.?"We arc glad to hear
that our strictures upon the sanitary
condition of the town, has had the
effect of stirring up the Board of
Health. At this season of the year
when thero is so much rain and an
nnnsual amount of decaying vescta
ble matter in our midst, no good or
thoughtful citizen can afford io keep
his premises unclean. Let every man
or head of a family, in town give carcful
attention to the condition of his
own premises, and we will soon have
ae healthy a town as can be found in
the State. But if only one or two
persons in different parts of town give
attention to the matter of cleanliness
upon their premises, then we may ex
pect no diminution in the number of
cases of sickness and fever in town*
Cleanliness is next to godliness, and
we propose to fight it out on this line
if it takes all summer.

A Smash Up.--There was a smash
up of several watermelon cars on the
C. C. <fc A. "Railroad on "Wednesday
morning. It seems that there were
two sections of the train, and that the
accident occurred dv tne rear sccuon
running into the othor, about two
miles this side of Chester, smashing the
conductor's cab and several boxes of
the front section and the engine and
the six or eight boxes of the rear sec
tion. The engineer and fireman of the J
rear train jumped off the engine when 1
they found it impossible to avert the 1
accident, and both of them received
severe injuries from the fall. It is
claimed by the conductor of the first (
train that he had sent a hand to the j
rear to Hag down the approaching (
train; while the engineer and fireman ,
on that section claim that no signal
was given to warn them of the danger.
There must have been gross careless- }
ness on the part of some one, which j
can only be fully determined by an j
investigation. The north and south- }
bound passenger trains of that day ^
were delayed for several hours on
account of the wreck. ^

OUR FOllGOTTEN DEAD.

The Ladies' Memorial Association,

from ruin and oblivion.
Col. IL B. Brown, the secretary of
the Soldiers' 'and Sailor*' Home, of
Sandusky, Ohio, and who recently
joined with the Grand Army Post, at
that place, in decorating these graves
with flowers has recently written to
the editor of the and Courier,
calling: attention to their dilapidated
condition, and stating that the wooden
head-boards, with a few exceptions,
now lie "rotting on the ground.''
Many of these are the graves of Car

are anxious to place a durable
marble tablet over them at least, but

Criticism on the Board of Health.

L'ntil this is accurately known, we j
3aunot tell whether the increase has |
been ten, fifty or five hundred per j
cent. I will admit that within a j
radius of five miles from a newly built j
town, where there is capital and enter-j
prise or any industry that has the form j
r?f mi inpvhnnctihln or lasting nature,!
the value of real estate has increased
to a limited and in many cases a phenominal
degree. But a distance "of
five miles from all railroads does not
take in the whole of this broad and
expanding universe, but in comparison
a very Hi.uli portion of it. Of
course the:c ui c exeptions to all rules
and two tides to every question, and I

in a fair and impartial way the evil as
well as the good contained in them.
Let us show our erring brother the
path in which he should tread, lest he
stumble and falleth by the wayside.
I do not wish "to see through a glass
darkly," but at all times am willing to
"render unto Caesar the things that arc i
C:esar?s." If we are honest in our
ronvir.tions. and believe we are right, t
I say stick to that belief lest we become
like the prodigal, see the "error
of our way," then let us return and
eonfirm to the principles of duty and
right whether we believe as other men
do or not. It has often been said: "A
wise m.m endeavors to shine in him
self; a fool to outshine others. "The
wise man considers what he wants;
the fool what he abounds in."
I think it fallacious in the extreme j
to think or say that railroads are a
curse in every instance, but I still say !
that there are a great many things in
connection with them that are detrimental
to agricultural industry, morality
and good government.
"I heard a prominent gentleman say
not long since "that it was a question
of time which would own this country,
railroads or Piukertoirs detectives."
If this be true, reason tells us
that agriculture is on tne wane. 1
accept such as true. Perhaps "Light"
is a personal friend of Jay Gould or
Cyrus Sv. Field, or some other great
railroad magnate, and has a large
amount of capital invested in rolling
stock; but if such is the case I believe
he is a man of too much reason, common
sense and sound judgment as to
desire more of the profits of industry
than the principles of right legitimately
give to each and every man.
I am not an advocate of newspaper
controversies, but will say that there

' is no better way to obtain knowledge
I than the interchange of ideas, ctc. If
! our old ideas arc mere delusion, a
fantasy, let us cast them aside and put i
on a new garment, for it has been said 1
'that there is but one animal that never \
changes its mind; so let us imitate no j
longer a beins: that has neither power 1
of speech nor an ear for music.

a running sore on my leg for-eight years:
