A Worthy Example.?The citizens
of White Oak, patriotically appreciating
the duty of all survivors of the
Confederacy, have determined to co
all in their power to the erection of a
monument to Gen. "Dick" Anderson,
and oue to the. Confederate 'dead at
this place. With this object in view
they have determined to have a hot
supper at White Oak on the 18th inst.,
the proceeds of which will be divided
half and half between Anderson fund
! and the monument association of this
county. Tbis is a wormy example
which should be followed in other por|
tions of the county.
Campaign Funds.?"We are not
aware to what extent Democrats in the
county have contributed to the cam,
paign fund individ ually, but the
information that one at least had sent
on his quota, which was indeed a generous
contribution, outside of the regular
collection fund, is cheering. We
refer to Mr. R. H. Jennings, who, not
Knowing 01 aieconiempiaieasuusuriution,
of his own accord sent five dollars
to Treasurer Canda. This action
was eminently patriotic and should
we all have done as much according
to our means, Fairfield would be the !
banner contributing county of the
Rev. Moore not Drunk.?Rev. !
Alfred Moore, colored, whose name
appeared in these columns sometime
ago in what was termed a ''drunken
debauch," has been up before his conference
on the charge, and he produced
a certificate from a reputable
physician that he had long been a suterer
from neuralgia, and having taken
for several days a large quantity of
quinine,'.it had practically crazed bim,
and causcd him to act as he did. We
had no intention of injuring the character
of this colored man, and simply
reported what was the common rumor
on the streets But since a physician
has given him his professional opinion
we cheerfully state the after-learned
facts of the case.
Maj. Pagan's Recollections.?
Maj. Pagan has for some years been
publishing in the Chester Bulletin
some interesting letters about people
and affairs in the counties of York,
Chester and Lancaster. The Major's
experience covers a long number of
vp-iT-s. and he has written his recollec
tion about historical and personal matters
of interest in these counties in a
most enteitaining style. He has decided
to publish a book entitled "Recollections
of Maj. Jas. Pagan/-' and subscription
blanks are now being circulated.
"We feel certain that this book
will be an interesting addition to the
history of these couuties, and that a
liberal subscription will be obtained.
The True Method Of
curing habitual constipation, and
liver and kidney ills, is to avoid the
use of the bitter drastic liver medicines
and cathartics, and to take only the
pleasant liquid fruit remedy, Syrup of
Figs. It cleanses as well as strengthens
the system, and does not leave the
bowels costivc, so that regular habits
may be formed, aud the invalid permanently
restored to health. It acts
promptly ana eiiectiveiy; it is easily
taken, and perfectly hamless. *

bis team stalled. He did all in his
power to get them over, knowing that
the morning train would soon pass.
IIis efforts were unavailing, but hearing
the train coming he unhitched bis
mules and awaited results. The
train came along running aUits ordinary
speed, struck the wagon, tore it
to flinders, and scattered lumber
on every side. Strange to say the
engine was not injured to any appreciable
degree, and everything was
done so quickly that the passengers
were not aware of what had occurred.
It might have been a most serious accident.
Improvements.?McMaster, Brice &
Ivetchiu have determined to do business
on the cashier plan, and have cut
an opening in the middle of their store
where the cashier's desk "nil be situated.
This is the first movement of
the kind in town, and being the most
accurate way of doing business, their
example will doubtless be followed by
other iii.-i chants.
The I. ink some time since placed a
handsome carpet on the floor inside
the raili:.-?r, which gives it qutea pretty
and cozy appearance.
The front of the store of J. O. Boag
has recently been painted in attractive
and harmouions colors, which adds
much to the appearance of the building.
Matthews Cummiugs are preparing
to put a glass front to their store
on Congress street. The handsome
vehicles they carry in stock will then
attract still more attention.

Impressive Ceremonies?Proccedinprs in
According to the published information
the cornerstone of the new Episcopal
Church was laid with impressive
ceremonies on Friday evening.
Quite a number of our citizens were
present to attest their interest and
hearty good will in the building of
this temple dedicated to the service of
Upon that part of the building already
erect. . a platform was made,
upon which the organ was placed and
chairs arranged for the choir, the
Bishop and other ministers.
About 5 o'clock the choir commenced
the rendition of a beantifnl hymn,
before the conclusion of which the
Bishop, Rev. W. B. "W. llowe. and
the following ministers approached
and took position on the platform:
Rev*. Ellison Capers, D. D., Rev.
E. N. Joyncr, Rev. A. R. Mitchcli,
and Rev. J. G. Glass.
Rev. Mr. Joyner then led the assemblage
in a touching prayer, after
which the list of articles placed in the
corner-stone was read. They were
as follows: Copy of the proceedings
of the Diocesan Convention for 1SSS,
United States coin?20c. of 1S75,
Canada coin?26c. of uanacta
coin?10c. of 1872, United States coin
?lc. of 1825, United States coin?lc.

Living Church, Southern Episcopalian,
Constitution, Rules, and Canons
of the Episcopal Church, Columbia
Register, News and Courier, Triweekly
and Weekly News and Her- i
ald, and list of Wardens and Vestrymen.
The Bishop, then, with ham-!
mer in hand, after prayer, laid the
corner-stone in the name of the "Father,
Son, and Holy Ghost." The choir 1
theu sang another hymn, when the1
Bishop announced that Dr. Capers
would address the assemblage. Dr.
Capers came forward and delivered a
very able, eloquent, and instructive
address. His general line of thought
was that the temples made with hands
could be destroyed by fire, earthquakes
and storms, but the Church of Christ
was eternal in the hearts of men.
Speaking of infidelity, the doctor said
that it was not more prevalent now
than in past years, bnt that on the
whole it was on the decrease. He
congratulated the rector, his parishoners
and the people generally on the
result of their effor's and assured
them that should further aid be needed
it would be forthcoming.
Mr. Glass then announced another
hymn, after the singing of which the
Bishop invoked the Divine blessing
upon the building just commenced,
and dismissed the assemblage with
the benediction. Thu3 closed the exercises
of the day.

The notice in your paper that the
county treasurer would make his usual
tour of the county at a time when:
I would not be particularly engaged,
suggested that I make the effort to
gratify the desire I have long lelt to
see something of uiy native county, so
I called on that "necessary evil,'"' the
tax-collector, and proposed that in
return for my company he haul me
round the county with hirn. This
functionary at first seemed disposed io
treat the proposition as a piece of colossal
cheek, but when reminded that
votes might be in demand at the next
primary election, the official smile ap
peared on his countenancc, and when
I intimated that he might count on
me I was assured that my company
would be most acceptable; so the announcement
was made that we would
take an early start in the morning for
Buckhead, the first appointment.
After a journey of four hours over
corduroy roads we reached Mr. Feaster's
store, at Buckhead, feelingenthu'
siastic over the projected railroad
which will conncct this place with
"VViunsboro and furnish far more comfortable
and rapid transit between this
section and the county scat.

those days a large and profitable mercantile
business was done here by Mr.
Daniel Kerr. The only gin in upper
Fairfield was run at this place, and
the farmers lor miles around carried
their seed cotton there to be ginned.
; In those days cotton was not, as at
present, the principal crop. The different
cereals, tobacco, hemp, and
even indigo were planted, and. it is
said that only one hundred bales of
cotton were made where now thousands
arc annually gathered. A large
buck's head adorned the lintel of the
post office, nivl :uis circumstance
gave the phu- ,.a name. Buckhead,

Mrs. Ladd's energy, pluck and industry
is indeed wonderful and furnishes
a commendable example to the rising
generation. This aged lad}', in her
seventies, last year cultivated with
her own hands a garden covering an
I acre of ground and we are informed
it was kept perfectly clear of grass.
She is very much interested in viticulture
and gave us a glass of delightful
wine made by her own hands.
We arrived at Wolling on Friday at
11 o'clock, an hour ahead of the published
schedule. As this is a new
"town" we will bound it for your
readers. North by Crosbyvillc, east
by Feasterville, south by Backhead,
west by Shelton, Ten years ago
there was only a cabin to mark the
placc. Mr. John G. Wolling, the

lie, the only merchant in the place,
and lie owns there a saw mill, public
gin, blacksmith shop, and wood shop;
is chairman of the school trustees, and
does the hospitalities of the place
which is named for him. Mr. "VVolling's
progress has been coincident with
that of the place. Commencing in
the cabin, by attention to business
conducted on business principles, he
is already what the world calls a success.
At "Wolling we met Squire Coleman
who has acceptably held the scales
of justice among his neighbors for fifteen
years. In the recent primary
election he received the almost unanimous
endorsement of the Club.
Capt. J. F. V. Legg, one of the
most influential and successful farmers
in his section, came over to liquidate
his indebtedness to the State and

us that his health is better though he
is not very stont yet.
Mr. D. It. Feaster, who will remove
to Arkansas shortly, has sold his
plantation to Mr. M. D. C. Colvin.
Mr. Colvin is one of Fairfield's successful
young- farmers, and we are
glad to hear that he has concluded not
to leave the county as he at one time
thought of doing.
"VVe spent Friday night with Major
Faucettc who was so full of some
business plans and projects that we |
hadn't time to take a rub or euchre.;
This is Major F.'s favorite game, and j
they tell as a joke that you are not alj

Miss Alicc Faucette has resigned her j
position as teacher at Monticeilo, and i
will go to Washington next week.
The tax business being exhausted at J
Wolling we turned our horse's head
homeward and got along first rate
until we reached^Beaver Creek. The
recent freshet has washed out a hole
just at the crossing, and the water
runs in the bottom of the buggy at
least two inches deep. "We call the
attention of the county commissioners
to the condition of this crossing and
also tell them that the tax books came
very near being ruined by the water.
Can't the place be bridged?
While at Wolling, Mr. W. S. weir
gave us some apples picked from a

have been gathered this year. I

Why You Feel
So weak and exhausted is because your
blood is impure. As well expect the
sanitary condition of a city to be perfect
with defiled water and defective
sewerage, as to expect such a complicated
piece of mechanism as the human
frame to be in good order with impure
blood circulating even to its minutest
veins. Do you know that every drop
of your two or three gallons of blood
passes through the heart and lungs in
about two and a half minutes, and that,
on its way, it makes bone and muscle,
brain and nerve, and all other solids
and fluids of the body? The blood is
the great nourisher, or, as the Bible
terms it, ^
"The Life of the Body."
Is it any wonder, then, that it the blood

tuents, yon suffer so many indescribable
