The company lost about 200 tons of
seed from heating, caused by not

in arrival of some machinery sent off
for repair. They have worked up
about 900 tons of seed so far, and have

The ginning is falling off now, so they

Wc met Mr. Jno. J. Baker 011 Saturday
and are glad to learn that he has
entirely recovered from his wound
caused by the bite of a mad-dog. As
soon as Mr. Baker was bitten, he went
to Dr. Austin Scott for treatment and
Mr. Scott referred him to parties in
Charlotte who had in their possession
a mad stone. Mr. Baker took the
train for Charlotte at once, and had
the stone applied to th# wound, and it
adhered, showing that there was some
poison in the bite. The stone was applied
until it would adhere no.longer,
which was evidence that all the poison
had been extracted. Some people have
no faith in a mad stone, but if this
stone will adhere to some wounds,
caused by bites and trill not adhere to
others, it is evident that there is some
property in the stone that caused it to
act as a suction. We remember as distinctly
as if it were today, when the
news reached town that two children
of Dr. Scott?s had been bitten by a
supposed rabid animal that Mr. W.J.
Elliott telegraphed to the late J. T.
I Butler, of Charlotte, N. C., (who then
J owned the stoue) for the loan of the
: stone and it arrived in about three
hours by express with full instructions

of the stone, and he wrote that
"if there is poison in the wound, the
slone will adhere; if it does not adhere
you may rest assured that there
is no poison in the bite, and the stone
: will fall oil* when it is free of poison.
Then you must boil it in sweet milk
which draws the poison from the stone
after which you apply to the wound
again and until it will not anv longer
adhere. When it fails to longer ad-1
here the poison is all out."
These instructions were carried out
by I)r. Scott as the stone was carried

DEATH OF TIIE POET LAUREATE.
In tha parlance of the Bachelors'
Protective Union, we chronicle the
der&ise of the Poet Laureate, Capt.
W. T. Crawford. Our " j.an about
town" received an announcement a
day or so since of the marriage of
Capt. Crawford to Miss Trala Jacobs,
of Shreveport, La. The eventful date
was January 3, 1894. In the sentiment
of the B. P. U., marriage of one
of its members means the death of the
member married. So wipe your eyes
and force back your tears if any of
you have already commenced to weep,
for Mr. Crawford did not die, but only
Tho m^rriaorp of Mr. Crawford leaves
only one original charter member of
the Union?Mr. T. W. Lauderdale, the
presideat. There are other members,
but not one of them were members at
the organization. In our rounds we
had noticed a sadness in the tone of
voice and a look of loneliness and
despair in the countenance of the "Old
Solitary", T. W. L.t and had almost
been moved to compassion sufficiently
to ask the old president what burden
laid so heavily on his heart. But when
the announcement of the marriage of
his only Jiving brother reached us we
knew at once why this old knight of
celibacy would neither eat nor drink
and refused lo be comforted. He
stands in his loneliness like an oak of
the original forest, and the winds of
forty-four winters have whistled
through his whiskers, while the second
growth is springing up around him on !
all sides, and in a short while will be
lost to view aordst the foliage?unless
he dies as did his fellow members.
Capt. Crawford was our schoolmate,
clatsmate and companion in business
for a number of years. He is the son
of Mrs. T. B. Madden, a nephew of
the late Jno. S. (Jathcart, and has a
large family connection here and a
host of friend#, all oi whom w;sh him
a lt?? and happy married life.
He was a member of the G. L. I.
while here in W'innsboro, and after
living in Shreveport joined the Caddo
Ilifles, one of the prize companies ot
that place, and was soon elected captain.
He was in command at a hotly
; contested prize drill where his company
came out victorious. We ven:

hospitable home of Mr. and Mrs. B.R.
Scott, and there participated in an old
fashioned musical entertainment and
sociable. Without was dark and bleak,
within was merriment, music, (vocal
and instrumental), flowers, and a bevy
of lovely, smiling and blooming young
ladies. Words there cannot express
our admiration sufficiently, so we will
go on to discuss other subjects.
Refreshments were served by mine
hostess, and in conclusion vocal" music,
led by Miss Viola Harrison, instrumental
by Mrs. Scott. In all it vras a
most enjoyable occasion and the "wee
sma" hours arrived too soon.
Mr. Leslie Mustin and his sister
Miss Kate, both of Augusta, Ga., after
visiting relatives here, have left for
Miss Manuie Cunningham, of Liberty
Hill, S. C., and Misses Florence
and Annie Scabrook, of Columbia, arc
spending a while with relatives here.
Cupid has been out lately shooting
his darts, and judging certain signs,
the arrows went straight to the targets.
Farmers have nearly all perfected
arrangements for the season and are
going to work with a vim. We hope
for letter times in the future. There
is ample room for improvement.

a memb?r of the second Presbyterian
t.'hurcb, and a more conscientious and
dev.itcd churcbir.au never lived. His
!:ft; was one of constant service for
iht; Master. There was no cant about
him; all recognized that he was sincere
and no one ever questioned that sincerity.
Mr. MiUreight was one of
the most active members of the Y. M.

or good deeds were to be done, ke
I w;:s never wanting. He was also a
prominent member of the Brotherhood
of Andrew and Phillip of the second
Presbyterian Church. The Brotheri
hood, with other friends, nursyd him
I in his illness and arranged hiv burial.
Mrs. X. E. Giles, whose s:>n Mr. McCrc-ignt
nursed iti his last illness, a.-ked
that lie be buried in her lot in the
cc s.etery. near her ?on, thus expressing
lirr appreciation of his kindness
to her son.
Mr. Mc freight was a son of Mr.
Samuel McCreigh', who went from

and a nephew of Mr. W. D. Gilbert
and Mrs. Timothy Harder.?both of
whom itgrct that they know nothing
of his iilness, as they would have
gone to attend him in his last iiinese.
Thsy knew nothing of his sickness
until the Charlotte Observer aunounced
his death. We knew the dcoeased
personally, and knew him to be a man
of a high order of moia! character.
We extend-our sympathy to his relatives
here in this county.
