?The Kickapoos gave a very good
intertainment on Saturday night. At
the conclusion, Dr. "West announced

Oak,, who is visiting in town, received
the highest number of votes.
?"Various hypotheses are advanced
as to the cause of this phenomenally
beautiful and mild weather. One gentleman
on the streets said that he
thought the most plausible theory was
that during the recent earthquakes the
Gulf of Mexico was moved nearer to

on the subject.
?It is with pleasure that we learn
from a number of gentlemen from the
country that farmers are burying the

buried at Concord Church, at Woodwards,
on Tuesday. Mr. McCarley
was about 80 years of age at the time
of his death. He has a number of
children living in this county at present.
We extend our sympathies to
?A recent act of the Legislature
provides that each military company
in the State shall have twelve drills
during the year, and sixteen men shall
be the minimum number allowed for
a drill. If these rules are not complied
with, the company shall forfeit
its proportion of the annual appropriation.
The Gordons, no doubt, will
take due notice and govern themselves
?Our young people, want some
place to spend their evenings. There
has been a demand for this some tiuie.
We reiterate our suggestion that a
literary club be organized to meet
regularly once a week> and different
subjects be assigned for discussion.
This would be of great practical bene
fit and a source of doing much good to
the community. We have some good
scholars, but there is a wide difference
between a scholar and an educated
man. The educated man is the man
wilo can adapt his learning to his
environment and give his fellows the
use of his information. If we had
these informal meetings we should all
be mutually profited by them.
Some Cheap Shoes?D. A. Hendrix
has 24 pairs of Ladies' Fine $3.00
Shoes, sizes, 2 to 4?. These shoes will
be closed out at $2.00. Also 36 pairs
of Ladies' Kid Buttoned Shoes at
$1.50, worih $2.00. This is less than
these shoes cost, but we need the
rnntiev and the shoes must SO. *
Your First Duty.?The first duty
of every citizen is to sustain his home
newspaper and if he can afford to take
but one paper it should be the one
which gives the "local news." But
there are few persons in the United
States who read at all who do not
subscribe for more than one paper.
Death.?The infant child of Mr.
and Mrs. J. M. Smith died on Sunday
morning about 5 o'clock. Their little
son was only three months old. He
took sick very suddenly on Saturday,
and died of congestion of the stomach
at the time above stated. The funeral
took place at the Presbyterian Church
on Sunday afternoon at 4. 30 P. M.

The Boys Disappointed.?Every
boy in town hailed with delight that
Silas Paulding had swapped off his ox,
Hense by name, a terror to the boys.
- - 1
Hense is a very dangerous animai
to ride behind, that is to say, Silas
says he is; consequently Silas was
never annoyed, as he often apprehended
he would be, by the small boys
stealing a ride when Ilense was left in
the streets without his very cautious
owner. The boys had a big jubilee?in
fact they held a conspiracy meeting,
when they lizard that Hense had been
exchanged?and they resolved in their
heai*ts to have many a good ride out of
the new beast of burden. Butlo, the first

ROBERT BEXTHJ.M BOTLSTOX.
Friday night, the 10th inst., our
friend and fellow-citizen, Robert B.
Bovlston was called by the silent
voice of God, and his soul cheerfully
answered. His death was not unexpected;
the disease was consumption.
Languishing, as he did, for day after
day and month after month on his
wearisome bed of sickness, he heard

Robert Bentliam Boylston, the second
son of the late R. B. Boylston
and Mrs. S. C> Boylston, was born
in "Winnsboro on the 16th day of
October 1851. He received his early
schooling at Mount Zion Institute,
and subsequently, in 1869, went to

but had to leave very shortly after
matriculation as the negroes got control
of the institution. He pursued
his studies further at the University of
Virginia, which institution he entered
in 1870. Born of cultured and refined
parents, with these high educational
advantages and his extensive travels
in Europe and tliis country, he was
a man of no meagre attainments, and
a most pleasant companion.
He spent fourteen years in business
in Baltimore, but was forced by
failing health to return home hi
Air Boylston was a very pure man,
with a character impregnable to a
mean thing and a very warm and
sincere friend. In his death, the last
male member of the distinguished
family, bearing his name in Fairfield
County, passes away, as well as the
last child of his distinguished father.
Ilis body was laid to rest in the
Presbyterian church yard at 4.30 p.

The Old Fraser Place Burned?Origin of
the Fire Unknown?Inmates Barely
It is not ofteu that our town, so well
protected against loss by fire, is
thrilled with the fearful tones of the
distressing cries of fire, and the inlrequencv
of the alarm only added to the
emotion of terror that seized our people

The_scene of distress and pending
rain was the old Fraser or Law place,
a large two story frame structure,.containing
ten rooms, with a stone
basement. It is now the property of
Miss Mattie Gaither.
The fire was first discovered-by Mis9
Gaither, who was aroused by the roarins:
and cracking of the burning house.
She saw that the western side of the
hoiue was all ablaze. The origin of
the conflagration and exactly the hour
it started are equally uncertain.

Miss Gaither, retired about half pasttwelve,
and he neither saw nor heardanything
giving warning of the destruction
which followed only within
a half an hour after his going to bed.'
The inmates of the house barely escaped
with their lives. Mr. Glass
after awakening had scarcely
time to throw on a few clothes and '
pitch a desk and one or two articles
out the window when he was warued
by the firemen to get out. Turning-to
the two doors which opened in the hall''
he discovered that egress was cut off
in that direction and he was forced to
leap from the window. Fortunately
however, the distance from the win.
dOW 10 ine grounu was very suuu,
for this reason Mr. Glass received no
injury by his jump. * *
Miss Gaitber had her dwelling injured
for 2000 dollar?, but none on the
furniluie and household effects. Some
of the personal property was saved;
The whole loss above insurance will
in all probability amount to $1500.
The whole town in (hat quarter was
filled with flying sparks, and the
Episcopal parsonage, Mr. Egleston's
and Major Pagan's houses were thereby
ignited, but by the prompt assistance
of citizens and firemen no damage
was done to any of them.
Prof. Gordon, of the Kickapoos, and
Mr. Mullinax, who are not residents
of our town but temporarly located
here, deserve special mention for their
zeai and effective work. So does'

as conld be found in their stores, late c
Saturday afternoon. We first ap- c
MR. G. B. M'HASTER, 0
of McMaster, Brice & Ketchin, who is t
the owner of the property now used as \
the passenger depot. He said that he c
would be willing to make almost any
additional change, with very little in- t
crease of rent, rather than have the de- (
pot removed. He had sent the au- t
thorities a diagram of the building as \
he proposed to reconstruct it. The c
diagram gives two waiting rooms, one c
befog the present, postoffice, one room t
for express and another for the telegraph
offices. Mr. McMaster said he c
rafide this concession, not on account f
of pecuniary benefit to himself, but for
public convenience. t
- J. F. M'MASTER, ' 8
Of J. 'F. McMaster & Co., on being 1
aifceftio give his opinion, said I don't *
want , the depot changed. The com- 1
plaint is on account of the cr?wd of 1

proper action of the town council with *

has a tendency to move South, and I *
want nothing further to assist it.

need of good, pare spring water, and
wishing to avoid expense and sickness
by the use of well water, which has
been pronounced by the highest medical
authority to be very unhealthy aud
unclean, causing sickness and expensive
doctor bills?if not death in
numerous instances. Now, instead of
this unwise and expensive notion of
well water, I propose to furnish good,
pure spring water by the use of the
celebrated New Improved Double-acting
Compound Hydraulic Ram, which

distance nor elevation make any difference,
as either is very easily overcome
by the use of this celebrated Compound
Rem. These' Rams are a new thing
and as far ahead of the old style as a
locomitlve driver is to an or driver,
as the valves are made out of the best
gun metal and very heavy, and are of
tremendous strength, and will last for
years and years. Still so simple in all
its parts that a way-faring man, though
a fool, caunot err therein.
Just think of it, and think of it
well; think of the days of our forefathers,
with all its primitive modes .
and all its awkwardness, ana toe
progressive age in which we live;
and then think on the water of life,
that instead of boring," digging and
contending at enormous trouble and
expense,' possibly through rocks and
other obstacles that can't be overcome,
after enormous labor and expense and
the cheap and easy manner in which it
can be had by the use of hydraulic
power. Besides, if you should be successful,
what have you got? Why, an
old well with some bad, stagnant
water at the bottom of it, that in a hot,
dry time in summer becomes the fceadquarters,
grand rendezvous and swimming
bath of all mice, rats, chickens,
and even snakes, who can always succeed
in finding their way in, but never
iu finding their way out'
