We hear of a caae of smallpox in
Whit? Oak. A uection hand who has
beea ia Georgia is the sufferer. If
this is smallpox it is coming very
near us, ar" should cause those who
are still thinking of being vaccinated
to stop thinking and act.

J. E. McLurkin, a student of the

as he heard that the college had been
quarantined, made up bis mind to
escape to his home near Sheltou, in
this county. He arrived at Sbelton on
Sunday and has been loafing about the
station. This shows how smallpox
may be spread and illustrates the wiidom
of being vaccinated.
?We are requited by the intendant
to impress upon the people of the
town the importance ?f being vaccinated.
The council is keeping the
physicians supplied with fresh points,
and urge the white people to see that
their cooks, nurses an 5 any olheri
employed by them, are vaccinated.
A* this seems to be the only m3ans of
preventing the smallpox from spreading
the necessity of being vaccinated
should be obvious to all.

Leaves an Interesting Scrap of
History Abont the Lyleies.
Your former correspondent, Col.
Wm. Edrington, gave me the following
data, not Jong before his death:
i?r. Ephraim Lvle3, the progenitor
jf the fam;ly in South Carolina, came
from Virginia in 1784?originally
from England. He *Lad five sons,
riz.: Arromanus, James, Ephraim and
William, nick-named "Big Bill."
James. Lyles commanded a regiment
in the Revolutionary war and was
silled at the battle of Hanging Rock.
Bis brother tcrved under him.
Mr. Edward Pearson say* in his
:<History of Fairfield", ^regarding iir.
Ephraim Lyles: "It.i? said that the.
Jatawbas never shed one drop of
white man's blood. True, they were
:rn?ty when the whites made their first
jncroachments upon the Catawba
lands, bnt they w?re soon pacified,
rhe Catawbas were accused of the
murder of Mr. Epbraim Lyles, who
resided upon Beaver Creek, but, it
was ascertained that the murderers
were white men disguised as Indians,
who were sent on from North Carolina
to perpetrate the deed, for the
purpose of settling a laweuit about a
barony of Roanoke lands, in which

has said: "To die is common; passing
through naturo to eternity." Bat it is
no common event when such a mau as
Gen. John Bratton leaves the earth;
for with his departure there goes more
than an ordinary amountot worth and
character, an 1 the cause of virtue suffers
by the loss.
Conspicuous throughout his life was
a whiteness of purpose and purity of
act that made him a conspicuous man.
There was in his form, personality
and manners that which impressed
every one whom he ir.et. In a crowd
he had no fellow, he wa3 unique, full
of presence and power. Eis large
brown eyes aiowiy moving ill IUU1 I
sccket3 aad expanding to receive all
natural light indicated a man of
majesty of soul and clearness of judgment
and kindness of heart rarely
found among men.
Those friends must speak of his life as
a soldier, who stood with him on
the edge of battle "all fringed with '
fire", for the writer would paint but 1
an imperfect picture of him surrounded
by "ihe halo of battle" if he ventured
upon the sketch.
Since the war I have known him
well, and in recent years a more than
usual intimacy has exi?ted between ns,
and it is of this time that 1 would especially
The one characteristic cf his life was
big devotion to principle and bis love
of tru'h, and by these words I meaa .
more than is commonly signified by
them among men. He had the Intel- :
lectaal power to discern the right, and
he scarcely ever failed to detect it3
presence in any question he was considering;
he knew that error was always
weak, and seeking borrowed
clothing from trutb, and ho was fnlly
persuaded that truth was powerful,
was ultimately successful and that i
error was but a temporary success. ,
He was, moreover, a man of broad i
convictions. Manv men bava prejudices
and call them judgments and.;
- j m ? x _ j 1
convictions, but lie investigated, (
thought, pondered a subject, and after
examining both sides he found his
convictions. Kence it was that there ,
was so much of wisdom in thi3 man, (
so mu:h of simplicity of life and con- i
duct. He had reached what he be- <
lieved was trne, and his mind and ;
heart were quet. .
Others must speak of his political
record, but so far as any examination
can be carried, there will be found a
love of his State and institutions of
his country which equalled in intensity
that of Calhoun and Harper. Often
and again have I heard him say that
thejv States had written constitutions
-i.-it. the use of constitutions was
to 11 tect the rights of minorities.
Ag.i , have I beardjjhim say that the
only way this Governmet could be
preserved was by returning to what
was written in the Constitution of the
United States. But in the field of
pontic? I am persuaded that greater 1
honors would have followed him, had
not Gen. Bratton had such a comprehensive
scope and aim, which made his
plans and purposes incomprehensible
to the ordinary man. lie was always
ahead of his age; and as his insight
was clearer than that of most men, he
had already realized the triumph or
defeat of a principle before most men
were able to ascertain whether either
As friend, neighbor and fellow-citizsn
I knew him best and most of us
now living in Fairfield and Winnsboro
knew him in these relations. Where
shall we look for a traer citizen, a
citizen who loved his county and its
people with a love bronght from the
past and transfused through the
present; a citizen who loved ber hiJls,,
her valleys, the very sparkle of the
dew drop's on her meadows aud the
flasb of the sunbeam on her rivers and
' " ' Arm A'/?
brooks; a.citizen woo iuveu um uiu
historic town and who pointed with
pride to old Mt. Zion College as the
light on the bill and as the means of
our social culture and progress?
As a fritnd, who could not rest
upon him both the weak and strong
sides of his nature and character aud
find sapport for the one as well as
companionship with the other?
In his latter days h<3 spent most of
his time in Wionsboro and all of our
citizens shall mi6s his friendly salutation
and bis words of wise counsel. His
death wa3 unexpected, but he met it
as he met all of his foes, front to front,
for as he was going_out of this life the
memory of Seven .Tines, Jt? ore nam- j
son and other memorable battles came
over bis spirit, and be was making a
charge and marshalling his brigade;
then the summons that will call us all
ealled him from the fHd, and assured
n? as Tennyson said of Lord Wellington
a * * * FcroBCsotrue
There must be other nobler work to do
Than when he fought v.t Waterbo."
I am loth to have the memory of a
wi:-e, true aud honorable fri ml, and,
before returning to the busy scenes of
life, I cau but. iu imagina-ion grasp
his hand, as I d (' on the eveuing of
bis death and exclaim: "Thin golden
