Physician?The litlerington Memoirs.
Messrs. Editors: Most heartily do
we congratulate the inmates of our
County town upon their "fortikfiate
- - . r
escape from personal injury during
the "furious wind which passed over
town." Our recollection of the cyclone
of So is most vivid, and the loss
entailed was naught when contrasted
with the shrieks of the wounded, and
and the silent speechless agony of the
dying girl to whom we gave shelter that
memorable night. Of course you know
that the bridge at Shelton s was demolished,
and pity the unfortunate young
man who was so seriously injured.
Young Ivelly took refuge in the bridge,
was taken off with it and was found
wedged between the timbers, totally

in each hand. He is the sole dependence
of liis poor and aged parents,
and probably obtained those chickens
for his mother. It was rumored tliat
the young- man had died of his injuries,
but Major Faucette informs us that lie
is improving-. The good people in
that vicinity have contributed a fund
for liis benefit. Mr. David Crosby
lost two store-houses, one on each
side of the river. Fortunately, they
were unoccupied yet the buildings
were a great loss probably four or
five thousand dollars. We were without
our mail for about a week. Think
of beiug in the wilderness, without
the blessed privilege of receiving
letters, and papers. To those whose
comuiumcuiiujj Willi LI1C uilt&iuc wwm
is principally through the medium of

your "city folks" can realize.

sincere, profound., sorrow that we

E. Fant. A large concourse of his
relatives, friends and admirers saw
him buried at Rock Creek grave-yard
on the afternoon of the 29th ult. Dr.
Fant apprehended a fatal termination
of bis illness from the first, and
though several physicians seemed to
think he would recover, we feared
that our dear doctor's diagnosis of
even his own case would prove correct.
Alas! he has gone from us to return
no more, lie was a, periect master
of his profession, and socially and
intellectually had few equals. lie
was in bed three month?, and towards
the last, lay like a lion, his strength all
gone The once manly form was a
grand ruin from the ravages of disease,
yet his mental tacumes were nnimpared
until almost the very last. Dr.
Fant was a courtly gentleman, a most
excellent physician, so kind and sympathetic,
that he will never be forgotten
by those who were his patients.
Words "aro totally inadequate to convey
an idea of his hospitality. "Wc
all feel that we have sustained an
irreperablc loss. Dr. Jb'ant ancuur. ? .

THE GLORIOUS UXIOX. \
Its Eleventh Annual Banquet Celebrated l
With the Usual Pomp.
It has come, it is pass, it is done,
that is to say, tlie banquet of the
Bachelor's Protective Union. As the
silent hours of night drew on the long
roll of the bachelors was heard sraoting
upon the ears af aspirants who
sought the highe-t honors of life
and the greatest dignity that can be
clamped upon 11?? brow ot' man.
It is the custom of the baehejors to
inter upon ihelr toilsome task, yet
pleasing and beautiful ceremony, of
conferring U.eir sublime degrees upon
initiates at an earlier hour, but owing
to a mass meeting of citizens which
was called for the purpose of discussi?tf
mnltpra r.t'orpaf irnrinrtmice to the
"" ~ ' i
community, they did not adjourn from
labor io refreshment:* until the hour
(if nine. Scarcely had the chime of
the large bell of the town ciock diod
on "the startled air," when the ancient
mariner, the venerable a^ed president,
that had piloted the bark of bachelorhood
through many a rough and !
stormy >ca beat a gentle tattoo upon I
the quarter fleck, ami announced the
eleventh annual congivs* of the Union
was opened. The prcMdent arose in
a few. but touching wordj, to hid feelings,
tears rolled down his wrinkled !
cheeks, tear?, perhaps, of sorrow for!

of gladness in anticipation ef the convivialities

when lie hears the pop of a cork.
But from whatever cause these tears
may have flowed, he brushed them
away with his rough ?leeve when the
first candidate was announced; and as
all that transpires in the executive
sessions of the Union is done -under the
rose, we must draw the veil of secrecy
over ihe deliberations of the assemblage
and leave the candidate! to their
fate, or to go on I heir way rejoicing.
While the representative of the
i ^ ? n iL
press was present anu wnnesseu iue
metamorphosis of an ordinary man
into the anomolous creature?a bachelor?
the great confidence, as is generally
reposed in newspapers, and of
all The News and Herald, forbids a
revelation of everything that occurred,
even though such revelation would be
for the edification of the public. We
will say, however, that we have never
seen a more solemn scene, indeed so
solemn that ali of the noviates were
deeply impressed with the solemnity
of the .situation. After the shaking of
hands and welcoming the young bachelors,
their title* were read out as
J. II. Tillman, El Mahdi; M. Robin smvUi^id
Chaplain; It. Y. Turner,
Cetawayo; Wm^icCarJey, Ring Tail

Tbe announcement of these gentle
great hilarity. *
The Union now proceeded by ballot
to dotermine who should wear the
"big badge", the token of consistency,
and it affords us pleasure to state that
the lot fell on Mr. J. E. Williams, the
foreman of The News and Herald.
Now, indeed, commenced the fun.

was made upon the viands.
Shortly the president announced the
following toasts and sentiments:

after religious services at the

Brice had been partially paralyzed for
more than a year, but the recent attack
rendered him utterly helpless, causing
his death after a few months of intense

and successful farmer, and the announcement
of his death will send a

A LETTER FROM SFJIIXG GROVE.
Messrs. Editors: 1 certainly did
write a part of a letter to you about
i he last of February, but concluded to
i rewrite it?well, I didn't do it, and
j intentions are worthless when not
carried into action.
The storm, or cyclone or hurricane
which visited "Winnsboro 011 the 22nd
of March pasted very near to us. It
was destructive. It blew down many
houses and unroofed many others. A
man by the name of Humphrey bad an
arm and leg broken by the falling of
his house, and his wife was so badly
iniared that she died about a week
ago. It was narrow in its track,
especially at Vaugbnville and on eastward
towards Newberry. Mr. Koon's
large two storv store house in Vaughnville
was in .lie very heart of its narrow
track, and was worse torn to
pieces than any house I ever saw.
His goods were scattered ail around,
and of course were thoroughly wet, as
a very bard rain immediately succeeded
the downfall. His engine and
thresher were under a tallen house, and
his buggy and carriage were under
anotner. ah nuciugcin hu^uuui
said one thousand dollars would
scarcely repair his loss even if he had
all the-lnmber at the place. His mill
near by was nniujnred. Fortunately
he can saw hi* own lumber for repairing,
or rebuilding. The new and
beautiful Methodist Church near by,
which bad been recently painted was
so injured that I have no idea it can be
repaired without taking ic down; the
plastering was broken in a thousand
pieces, and one corner driven in the
ground, the sides curved off, and the
floor considerably elevated in the mid
j die. A large number or green trees
I were torn np by the roots all around it.
| I returned home another w&v from
| this scene of desolation, and crossed
! the track a little furthereast. X counted
within a hundred yards of me,
blown down and broken off, about
twenty-five trees. I have seen large
green pines and hickories broken off.
Most of the trees fell with their tops
towards the east, though I have noticed
in some places the tops weio towards
the north. Have heard others speak

which seems to bring it under the class
of cyclones; was not more than half a
mile wide, and passed about one and
a half miles from my house, but we
had more of it than wc wanted. IIow
many lessons we have to teacn us our
littleness. "Stormy wind fulfilling
His Will," and yet how we dread for
that Will to be fulfilled!
Oats have recovered from the cold
spell, and are now growing, looking
fresh and green. Peach trees bloomed
scantily about the last of February,
but in the latter part of March they
bloomed again. I have a number of
trees now, (April 2) in full bloom.
I am sorry to ?ee in your paper so
much opposition to the "Farmers Movement.
Have nearly a hundred thousand
farmers in South Carolina no,
right to think for themselver? Must j
others think for them? Can the Slate j
nrnsnpr rmlpQs her S5.0A0 farmers do? I
Are not all other classes of our citizens
seeking in various ways to advance
their own interests, ana most
farmers, who constitute far the largest
class of our citizens, no right to confer
and combine in relation to their
own common interest. Have farmers no

governor of South - Carolina. Some
seem to suppose that being a Tillman
man will make one cease to be a Democrat.
Not a word of it. But the
farmers are going to wade through.
Our farmers are as a class, the best
Democrats in the State. They are
thoroughly identified with the State,
and they do not ieel inclined to submit
to any gag law to please a minority.

less than three hours (the eruption

After taking several bottlc^Sh^v^fVa
Specific (S. S. S.) the eruptisns^f^1
tirely disappeared. A very slight
form of the same eruption returned
during the next epriug, but we theu
resumed the S. S. S., aud having taken
enough during that season to make the
cure permanent, he has not since had
any return of the disease. Swift's

thorough cures in both these cases,

remedy for all such diseases.

ATTENTION is called to those interested
in Hydraulics to an advertisement
that appeared in the Fairfield
New* and Herald some time
as:o as to the assassination of the old
scoundrel Wells, who was Earned to
death by Springs. Now, anyone wishing
to see the remains of old Wells can
very easily do so by visiting BlytbewrtrtfTa
ami aniriv/ to thfi residftllfiC of
Mr. John M. Hawley, who Jives close
by. Mr. Hawley has had b great deal
of trouble with old Wells and concluded
to get vid of him and take
Springs in his stead; and as to the
celebrated Hanson Hydraulic Ram, he
has found that even working at half
speed he could pump nearlv a thousand
gallons per day at a horizontal
pull ?f 655 feet and a vertical lift of
10G feet, which is three or four hundred
per cent more than was claimed
for it by vhe makers. But *u\ ?iawley
concluded that it was dangerous to
be safe along, side of old Wells on
account of his little children, so he
went and filled him up with some
green pine straw, believing no doubt
but that it would be cheaper to fill up
his old dirty maw that way than any
other, and 'thereby get rid of him a't
once and for ever, and only regrets
that he had not got ri.l of him long
As to the Ram, it is sold strictly on
its own merits, as it is right here to
how for itself; and as* to spring
water the great Master Mechanic put
that there, and I suppose that he wa3
the best judge of the* human stomach.
