A Horrible Accident.
Monday morning a colored train
hand, Tom Griffin, by name, ascending
the iadder while the freight train
was shifting, lost his foothold and
fell to the ground between the moving
tracks. A car heavily loaded
with lumber pxssed over his body
killing him instantly. Although his
body was terribly mangled, his face
was natural and easily recognized by
those who had known him. Tom is
an old "Winnsboro darkey, and used
to be in the employ of Mr. W. B.
Creight at the freight depot. He was

Tom Griffla baa a record on th? railread

was one of the train hands between

A 830 THANKSGIVING TURKEY. |
We get this interesting- story from
the sheriff of how a thanksgiving
turkey was obtained without price,
and in the end cost those who had
expected to enjoy it about fifty dollars.
"Captain" Hatten, of Poraaria,
Newberry County, and three colored
men, Orlando Williams and Beten

top buggies across the country. They
dined at Hampton Sims, colored, nine
miles from Winnsboro, and Williams,
while the others were at dinner, remained
on :he work bench or oat in
the yard. Afier they had enjoyed
the hospitality of the Sims mansion,
they set cut for Winnsboro, put up
their .horses at Crawford's and took
tbe train for Columbia to spend the
day. In the meantime, Sims' wife had
missed one of her turkeys, aud Sims

[ BATTLE OF MOBLEY'S MEETING
Mr. Editor: Recently in one of the
issues oT your valuable paper, a
subscriber makes inquiry about the
location of Mobley's Meeting House,
where a small but very important battle
was fonght during the Rebellion of
the colonies against the mother country.
There are many descendants of
persons who participated ia this fight
j on both sides living in the county, and
I sincerely hope some of them will
give an account of it, before all data
has been obliterated. It is ?in?u'ar
that even the location of the spot is
in doubt, and goes to show how important
it is that these matters should
be attended to whilst they are ^still

occurred in this county during ihe
Rebellion, and that great advantages to
the cause of the Whigs were the results.

THE FARMERS' CONVENTION
To be Held the First Monday In Decem?TKa
Wan nifi^nRfted bv
Nevr York Papers.
Remember the cotton convention to
be held in Winnsboro on the first Monday
in December for the purpose of
organizing the cotton growers of this
county. This meeting is called in
pursuance to the resolution of the
Cotton Growers Convention held during
Fair week. Mr. J. G. Wolling
was appointed to organize Fairfield
and he hopes to have a large attendance.
The plan is to organize by
fownshins. Mr. Wollinsr was author
?~ ~ - w
ized to appoint citizens in each township,
bat he prefers the convention on
the first Monday in December to do
this work. No one can tell in advance
what plan will be adopted to remedy
the existing conditiofi. The Roddey
scheme, as will be seen by the following
extracts from New Yoik papers,
has created considerable excitement on
the Cotton Exchange in New York.
If the bears are so much excited by
the suggestion of Mr. Roddey, it
seems that the Roddey plan has some
merit in it.
Here is what the New York World
KM?mKoro ftf fllD Pdltrtll Tilvohincp
here and in other cities are somewhat
excited over the proposition to form a
giganti: trust of all the cotton raisers

opposed to the scheme. It each a
trust is formed the brokers gay their

The Mercantile and Financial Times,

"It has long been a notorious fact
that the original producers of cotton
in this country get a far smaller share
than anybody else of the profits which
it yields before it reaches the mill.
Speculators, brokers, spinners and

of cases, but to sell it for whatever
he can get. The cotton Drodncersof

"Mr.. John T. Roddey, a native of
South Carolina, now doing business in
New York as a member of the cotton
brokerage firm of John T. Roddey &
Co.. has suggested a Dian whereby the
cotton growers shall form a gigantic
combination or company."
As may be supposed, ,Mr. Rodney's
suggestion has caused a tremendous
sensation. The speculators in New
York and els here are alarmed beyond
mea?i' ; -^ud the southern planters
are minted. There is no doubt
but the thing can be done if those concerned
will but "put their shoulders
to the wheel."
If fire-ccnt cotton will not stimulate
the planters to make an effort to help
themselves, we do not know what will.
It is quite certain, also, that unless
they do something, and that right
speedily, they will get deeper in the
mud than they are now in the mire.

Mr. James Jones, of the drag firm

speaking of Dr. King's New Discovery,
says that last winter his wife
was attacked with La Grippe, and her !
case grew so serious that physicians at
Cowden and Pana could do nothing ,
