?A report that Dewey bad stmk a

town on Sunday and everybody was
wondering what the result would be.
As toe daily papers coniaine 1 uuinmg |
aooat such an occurrence the report

He has }ast been released from the

scarcely probable that he will escape'
severe punishment for his awful crime
if guilty.
?It ii said by those who have investigated
the matter that the stars
and stripes of the American flag were
adopted from the escutcheon of the
Washington family. The family arms
of the Washington family were stars
and stripes, and it is probable that
when the General was hunting tor a
device for the American flag it ocfn
him nnnri fhp
escutcheon of his family would be a
good one for tht flag of the new

to see that sora^ r.-rogrpss is being

FAIRFIELD CAN GET IT.
At a recent meeting of the executive
commitee'of t^-e State Fair it was decided
to increase the premiums. It
was also decided to sivea prizs for the
best county exhibits, the first prize
being $350, the second ?250, and the
third $100. The first premium ?ould
easily be won by Fairfield County, and
if the farmers would only tike enough
interest and begin early to do all in
their power to get the interest of
all the farmers aroused, the prize
would be carried off by this county
next November. It is the best way to

Uitih.U M1UW1I IUC icouut^co vi IUIS j
county, and even though it will involve
a good deal of (rouble it would
certainly be worth while for the farmers
to unife in working for the first
prize. The other premiums will be
worth trying for, and our farmers
ought to determine at once to carry c-fF
the lion's share of premiums.
TO BE TRIED FOR ElS LIFE.
Mr. Nick Myers, formerly of this
county, but who has for a number of
years been living in Florida, is to be
tried for his life on the 1st of March.
He has been accusad of killing a man
in and is fn hp. friftd for the
crime. Mr. Myers was a gallant Confederate
soldier and served daring the
war in Gen. Bratton's brigade. His
friends in Fairfield are fully convinced
of bis innocence, and after hearing of
the trouble that he 13 in some of his
TVinnsboro friends have contributed
money to help him out of his difficulty.
All of the money that is needed
has not yet been collected, but
after the facts have been brought to
the notice of the people others will
probably come forward with contributions.
It is hoped that Mr. Myers
will ne aDie 10 prove ms innuceuee,
and Ms friends who deeply sympathize
with hiin ill await anxiously the
result of the trial.

HENRY TI3IR0D.
A memorial edition of Henry Timrod's
poems is now out. This volume
contains a complete collection of the
beautiful poems and a portrait of the
author. The Timrod Memorial Association
are working in order to raise j
a monument to the poet, and the proceeds
from the sale of the book will
20 towards the monument. The price
of the book has been fixed at a moderate
sum, ond this book, which should
be in the library of every South Caro- '
iinian, is within the roach of everyone.
The Century Magazine says that
"Timrod wa3 a true American poet
and worthy to stand in the narrow
space that belongs to the best."
For many years it has been almost
impossible to buy a copy of Timrod's
poems, but now that a new edition has
been issued it is to be hoped that the
association will realize from the sale of
the books a large enough sum to enable

condition of all the vital organs. If
the liver be inactive, you have a bilious
look; if your stomach be disordered,
yon have a dyspepiic lo6k; if your
kidneys be affected, von have a pinched
look. Secure good health, and vou
will surely have good looks. "Electric

THE INJURY TO FRUIT TREES, FLOWERS,
ETC.
The following letter by Mr. P. J.
Berckmans which appeared in th?
Columbus (Ga.) Enquirer-Sun will be
of interest to those who are in doubt
& to what tbey should do with their
roses since they have been injured by
tbs eold:
There is r Uurally mnch speculation .
in Columbus as to the exact amount
of injury done to the fruit trees, flowers,
plants and vegetation in general ]
by the recent freeze. 1
In this connection, the -following (
letter, received by a Columbus citizen,
will be read witn mucn interest Dy an
who raise and love flowers. The :
writer of the letter, Mr. P. J. Berck- .
mans, is a famous florist of Augusta, ,
Ga., and his opinion is valuable. The J
letter is as follow:
"Augusta, ?a., Feb. 215 1899. <
? ? : "Replying to your let- i
ter, we find that a large proportion of ,
oar lea and Marechal Neill rosea were
iniared to the snow line?below that,
however, tliey are perfectly sound. 1
The only thing to do is to out back all ]
damaged parts, and no doubt they
will soon recuperate.
"As regards banana ehrubs and tea
olive3, however, that is another ques- !
tion. Our old plant, 15 fe8t high, the I
body of whieh is IS inches in diameter,
we believe to be killed. A few dayi (
longer will settle the .question as to
the extent of damages. We do not '
intend cutting back anything until
sap begins to rise. Your verv truly,

AXOXUK HAS KIND WORDS FOR THE
MAJOR. '
Mr. Editor: it was reireining 10 S6e
something a;?ain over the familiar signature
of T. W. Woodward, for we
have !o:ig missed him from your columns
Ii has been, as tfce Major seems
to intimate, that since the advent of
the present political status Fairfield
stems for ihc time beitie to have forgotten
some of her eld landmarks.
Certainly it is not even doing justice to
Maj. Woodward to say that he is not
only one i-.f the landmarks of our
county, but al30 of our State. Mr.
Editor, believing that "honor should
be rendered to whem honor is due," I
suggest th&t some one of Fairfield's
r.itirpns. whn r?an r><ill minrJ fhp> r>APt
that Msj. Woodward occupies in the
history of our county and State,
should jiive as a sketch through The
Ne.vs and Hekat.p of the part no took
in those days of secession, of war, of
reconstruction and radical iu!e, during
thope daT3 of '76, and when white
supremacy was restored to South Carolina.
Let us remember the noble and
disinterested deeds of some of our
citizens while they are ret with as,

Hoarseness, sore throat and constant

which may develop into pleurisy or

FE AXCIS GERIG
Anotn?r landmark in Winnsboro
passed away when Mr. Francis Gerig
died at his home in Winneboro. on
Saturday morning about C o'clock.
Mr. Gerig bad not been well for
nearly a year, bat possessing & most
remarkable constitution together with
wonderful determination he continued ,
to attend to tha datiea of life, and bit
will power doubtless prevented bis
succumbing to disease sooner. On
Monday, the 20th lost., be was stricken
with paralysis, and no hope was entertained
of his recovery.
Francis Gerig was born February
56th, 1817, at Sondershausen, Germany.
On Julv 4th, 1847, he landed
in New York city, and settled in
Winnsboro July, 1343," entering business
with Mr. Mason Chandler, deceased,
the father of Mr. C. M. Chandler.
On November 9tb, 1848, he was
happily married to Mis3 Mary S.
Btankenstein, of Colombia, to which
marriage were born twelve children
five of whom, Mrs, C. T. Gooding,
of Macon, Ga., Mrs. E. P. Wolfe, of
Puerto Principe, Cuba, Messrs. J. J.
and A. E. Gong, of Ocalo, Fla., and
Miss Laura Gerig, of Winnsboro, together
with his widow, survive him.
A.ItUoagn Dorn in a Toreign coauiry,
and devoted to his native land, Mr.
Gerig, landing in New York on the
1th of July, 1847, became a thorough
American citizen, at much devoted
and loyal to his adopted country as he
lovcS Germany. He was always for
liberty and against oppression and
tyranny, and as true to duty in public
affairs as any native. He baearne a
South Carolinian a3 much so as aiv
man in the State, and when South
Carolina called for volunteers he j
promptly offered his services against
the invading foe. On January 1st,
1862, he entered into the active service
of the Confederacy as a member of
"Lyles Rifles," Jai. H. Rion, captain;
prior to that time Mr. Gerig was engaged
in making accoutrements for
the Government. Mr. Gerig carried
with him into camp the same faithfulness
to duty that marked his life to
the end.
' After the war. be resumed business
as a merchant, and a number of years
ago Mr. J. W. Selgler entered into
business with him under the firm name
of Gerig k Seigler,. which continued'
up to the time of Mr. Gerig's death.
Mr. Gerig was a man of magnificent
personal appearance-& striking resemblance
lo Bismarck's pictures, but
kandsomer. Tall, ereot and distinguished

you would look at: him again. A man
of strong convictions, once ha conceived
his duty nothing could deter

?It has been a long time since
Winnaboro has had any amateur theatricals,
Jbat the probabilities are that
soma tim? soon- aftor Easter the
people of our town will have th3 opportunity
of seeing a play presented
by some of the young people who
have had experience in that line.
Those who have the matter in hmd
have not yet corae to a decision about
what the play will bj but that will be
decided very shortly and then the rehearsals
will probably be commenced
immediately. We bave somj fim
amateur actors and actresses among
the young people who have aireudy

and whose talents arc well
kuown to all, and who will take part
in the new play. The name of the
play will be given liter.

is not a chance remedy. Its good effects
are readily experienced by al! expectant
mothers who use it. Years ago it passed
the experimental stage. While it always
shortens labor and lessens the pains of
delivery, it is also of the greatest benefit
during the earlier months of pregnancy.
Morning sickness and nervousness are
readily overcome, and the liniment relaxes
the strained muscles, permitting them to
expand without causing distress. Mother's
Fnend gives great recuperative power to
the mother, and her recovery is sure and
rapid. Danger from rising and swelled
breasts is done away with completely.
