a gallant member of the 6:h Regiment

J. A. GLADDEN EXPIRES SUDDENLY.
On Wednesday evening fast as the
day was closing, and the sun was sinking
in the West, the life of Jesse A.
Gladden, one of our best citizens,
passed away. Mr. Gladden was on
the streets, and had been a spectator
in the Court House during the day, and
no one thought he should be taken
away so soon. The news of his death
f . a. YT
was a great shock to nis inenas. xie
had just gone home for the evening.
It is supposed that he had heart disease,
though apparently he wa? a sonnd
man. Mr. Gladden was about sixtythree
years of age, an excellent citizen,
and a membe: of the Methodist Church.
He went through the war, and leaves
behind him the record of a brave Confederate
soldier. His wife and a
number of children survive him.
His remaius were taken to Bethesda
Church, near Mr. Gkdden's old home,
for interment on Friday.

CHICAGO TO THE F-OXT.
Bjyce's Bi? Weeklies, the Saturday
Blade and Chicago Ledger, have been
fcard from again. The enterprising
publishers of these papers have recently
tlgone into color work"?tbat
is, they have added (o their immense
establishment in Chicago, a complete
outfit of machinery, apparatus, etc.,
for (he productions of colored pictures,
such as have made several New Yoik
The Boyce Company are constantly
- - 1 iV- A fAA AAA
studying now 10 piea?e me s,uw,wu
readers of (heir weeklies, and this
recent effort has cost them upward of
$30,000. If this is not enterprise then
we are not familiar with the definition.
The Saturday Blade is now sixteen
papes in size. The old Blade is there
intact, folded inside an eight-page supplement
containing three full-page
colored illustrations, original in design
and of the highest artistic development.
The Saturday Blade is a newspaper,
magazine, and comic illustrated
weekly, all in one.
Each issue of the Chicago Ledger
contains the best stories of adventure,
~ 1 L - 1-3
action, history, Diograpoy, nguseuuu
recipes, and miscellaneous reading
matter that is possible lor time, money,
or experience to get.
Tbe Ledger is profusely illustrated,
some of the illustrations being in
bright color?, tbe like of which has
never been offered to lovers of good
ind interesting reading matter. The
Ledger is a greatest of all weekly
family story papers, containing 24
pages, including the Young Folks' department,
edited in the interests of
the juvenile population. The Chicago
Ledger is safely the lcaaing Family
Story Paper of America.
Boyce's Big Weeklies are for sale by
newsboys and at ne.vs-stands.

Health is generally pretty good, notwithstanding
the grippe has had a hold
on nearly every family in this comrauniU.
There was a little shooting scrape
here on the 18;h infct, which was something
new for this vicinity. Deputy
Beckham went to serve a warrant on a
negro man named Arthnr Mack. On
presentation of the warrnni, the ne^ro
indicated vlolenc?, and said with an
oath that he would die in preference to
being arrested, and began to defend
bims;lfwith a chair, apparently with
some success. Then Beckham fired
two shots; one took (fleet in the face
of the neyro. though not fatal. The
negroes seem to be stirred up. Some
made threats, especially the younger
ones, or in other words those who
don't seem to know of auy law, or if
they d<> want to evade it. Just the
idea of a fugitive not submitting to the
la*/ and attempting violence upon the
person of an officer of the law! In
my opinion he should be brought to
justice. If there is no way to compel
him, others will fo low his example.
We are glad to see the cotton mill so
near completion. Hope ;t will prove
to be a boom for Fairfield County. If
we just had a r..i'road extention from

soon be second to no other county seat.

This company's exhibit at the Atlanta

to actively continue this method
of advertising. The scenic beauties

UPPER LONG TOWN LACONICS.
Our farmers hive commenced tb.eir
work for tLe year with a vim, which
speaks well for them. So much rain
has fallen of late, that the ground is
too wet for ploughing. A few more
dry windy diys, like the past two or
throe, will probably render it dry
enough to commence.
Gaidens haven't b.en planted yet,
owing to th-i unfavorable weather.
There will, in all probability, be a
great many vegetables planted dur.iug
the incoming week.
Farmers are now busily engaged
repairing fences, terraces, ditches,'and
burning brush and log?. Scarcely a
night pa-ses but what the heavens are
lit up by the reflection from the burning
logs anil brush. My wish and

amply repaid for our labors.

Don't Like the Chain Gang.
There is a growing sentiment throughout
the comity against a further mainta^nance
of the chain gang system.
Tu principal complaint is based on
the allegation that the chain gang costs
practically as much as the same number
of free laborers, and in addition
to this, it is claimed thit whatever
benefits there are in the institution, if
indeed there are an v. mnst necessarilv
be distributed with such partiality as
to work great injustice to other portions
of the county. Both of these
reasons seem to have the merit of more
or less force, and the whole matter
should have careful and thorough consideration
at the hands of the county

The i> aders of this paper will be
pleased to learn that there is at least
one drcadrd di-:ca-e that science has
been ab'e to cure in all it? stages, ar.d
that is Catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cnre
is the only positive cure r.ow known
to the medical fraternity. Catarrh
being a constntional disease, requires
constitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is taken internally, acting
directly upon the blood and mncous
surfaces of the system, thereby destroying
the foundation of the disease,
and giving the patient strength by
building np the constitution and assisting
nature iu doing its work. The
proprietors have so much faith in its
curative nowers, that they offer i
