a reri.;; 'on I'e subject of the
petrified ma-i exhibited i>i this State a
few years It " ?* claimed by
the owners have bceu fouDd in
this State, aid they have probably
made a fortune out of it, but scientists
in Berlin have since examined it
and have pronounced it a fake. They
say that it it an artificial compound of
lima and clay silicate, No doubt
many in this connty saw the petrified
man whtn it was exhibited in Columbn
and will be surprised to h?ar
:hat it is a fraud.
?Usually, during the firtt part of
January, there is a great deal of m.=v- '
in? about and changing of hou?e? in !
iown, but this year thsre is not as j
much as usual, probably because a
cumber of people changed their resi1on/>o
?n Foil finraa r?f ohftnorpa I
:hat have been m&de are the following:
Mr. Tennani and family have moved
into Mrs. Sarah Robertson's house on
Main street. Mr. and Mrs. Clyburn
md family are occupying a part of
Mr?. Conner's house. Mr aud Mra.
R. Hiawfrird have moved into the I
Baptist parsonage. Mr. Lucas and

Mr. Elisha Berry, of i'Js place, says
:e never had anything do hi.m so much

Receipts of the Postoffice for the Past
Three Years.
The following are the receipts of the
^innsboro post office for the past
bree years, from the sale of stamps
ud stamped envelopes:
For 1896 $2,726 60
For 1897 $2,726 47
For 1898..... ... ,.$2,963 64
It will be seen by a glance at these
igures that the receipts for the past
ear were considerably more than far
wo preceding yeara, and the postmaser
attribu'os this increase to the fac
ory. The addition of about live hunIred
people to the population of the
own would naturally increase the sa!e|
stamps and stamped envelope3, and j
hn clearly shows the benefit the coron
mill has been to the town.

The ne>vs will be a painful surprise
to thofe 0;'Mrs. Robertsou's relatives
and fri vi s' who knew not that she
was m k. s ie had not been well for

Editor: With the beginning of a
new year, we constantly form new
resolutions. Now let's see if some of
us careworn, almost rasted-ont Fair?eidites
can't be "up and doing" and
snetain not only onr reputation as
farmers, but the reputation of the
dear old county as being the fairest
field iu all the State. First, let us
mean just what we say about planting
less cotton at.d *nore grain, at least,
enough for home, consurap'ion. "We
wiii never cease to fee; tbe sting of
poverty whilst we persist in planting
so much Kiu? Cotton. For after we
have sioLfd the heat of summer and
carried a heavy bnMcn (debt) all
year, then V7e do?i't find the "king in
Lis counting house counting out much
mo:iey; neither the queen in her parlor
eating bread and honey." Them,
too, we h-.ve ifee mortification of hearing
tha'. .be poor, honest merchants
haverfi go (ten their pay for the hog
and hominy, and maybe a Jew clothes
to run thac cotton crop on. 7, for one,
am willing to plant no more c. tfonthan
my family can finger pick, thereby
savh.g re expense of ginning. Why
try to keep up with progress unless
we makj a j effort toward progress?
which c&-.'t be accomplished by planting
tour ocrvs cotton.

A Clever Trick.
It certainly looks like if, but there is
realiy no trick about it. Auybody
can try it who has Lame Back and
Weak Kidneys, Malaria or nervous
troubles. We mean he can care himself
right away by taking Electric
Bitters. This medicine tones np the
whole system, acts as a stimulant to
the Liver and Kidneys, is a blood
purifier and nerve tonic. It cures
Constipation, Headache, Fainting
Spells, Sleeplessness and Melancholy.
It is purely vegetaoie, a mild laxative,
and restores thesvstem to its natural
vigor. Try Electric Bitters and be
convinced that they are a miracle
worker. Every botile guaranteed.
