class this year was very large,
and among the grade ates were several
students from. Fairfield. The following
are the graduates from this county
and the subjects of their essays: Chaa.
P. McLurkiu, "Night BriDgs Out the
Stars"; Garfield B. Pickett, "Good
Reading".
?Should the proposition made by
the citizens of Darlington, to rebuild
Gen. Hampton's house, be seriously
considered by the people of the SUie,
we trust that Fairfield will be among
tha first counties of the State to come
forward with a subscription It would
be a grand opportunity to give to the
aged general substantial proof of th?
devotion of his fellow South Caroli- s
nians who owe so much to this noble
old man.
?The firemen held a meeting on
Thursday night and decided to take
part in the firemen's tournament to be
held in Columbia in June. Our firemen
will enier the reel race, and we
feel confident that they will carry off
the prizes offered for this race. They
will doubtless devote much time between
now and the 21st of June to
practicing for the race, and will be in
condition to compete with any firemen
in the State.
?At the inter couegiate oratories*
contest held a short time ago at Erskine
^College the first prize was won
by W. L. Moise, of Snmter, who represented
Ciemson College, and the
second priz9 by R. F. Watson, of
Ridge Spricg. The prizes were beautiful
gold medals and were presented
by Dr. Grier, of Er3kine, and Secretary
Wilson, who was one of the
judges. After the contest was over
Mr. Wilson delivered a most interesting
address. A very large audience
was present on this occasion.
The ancients believed that rheumatism
was the work of a demon within
a man. Any one wno Has nact an
attask of sciatic or inflammatory rheumatism
will agree that the infliction is
demoniac enongh to warrant the belief.
It has never been claimed that
Chamberlain's Pain Balm would cast
out demons, bat it will cure rheumatism,
aDd hundreds bear testimony to
the truth of this statement. One application
relieves the pain, and this
quick relief which it affords is alone
worth many times its cost. For sale

?The many frierds and admirers
of Gen. Hampton in the whole South
and particularly in his native State
grieve for him in the loss of his house
and the many valuable things that
money could not restore. The fire occurred
on Tuesday ^morning at an
early honr and it was impossible to
save the bailding. The General seems
to have been followed by fire, as
twice recently his house has caught
fire. Losing his house is a severe
blow to Gen. Hampton, but he has
met the calamity with characteristic
fortitude and cheerfulness.

Oeeo operated for several years a9 it
did not prove profitable, and the
ladies of the company have been anxious
fcto dispose of the outfit, which
was very complete. This canning
factory when first opened several
years ago created great interest allover
the State. A very superior grade
of canned goods was put np here and
everything was of the best, but owing
to ths uncertainty of vegetable crops
and great competition it was found
that it could not be a profitable busi?
ness.
?Professor Fooshe has just had a

THE SUNDAY SCHOOL CONVENTION.
8Xfc
The Fairfield Baptist Sunday Schoo
Convention held its 4th annual session
with the Ridgeway Baptist Church on
Friday, the 28th day of April, closing j
Sunday with the 11 o'clock sermou.
The convention was organized by the <
re-election of W. R, Rabb president; 1
: B. J. Yarborough vice-president; "
! W. G. Hicnant secretary, and Rev. :
j TV. R. Briscoe treasurer. Tbis meet- j
! ing was not as largely attended as onr <
(previous sessions, owing, probably, 1
i to the backward spring, which pre- j
vented many farmers from completing ,
their planting and being present with j
U3 as delegates or visitors. 1
The program was practical and in- ^
Btructive, and the discu3sious were J
made interesting by the deep feeling '
manifested by the speakers in the ^
Sunday School interest of our land. <
Seven ministers were present .with us, {
hnf nnne from a distance. This was !
""" " t
the only sbadow of, disappointment ?
that marred ita proceedings. The re- i
porta from Sunday Schools were ]
deeply interesting, and instructive? j
in that they emphasizsd and illustrated ,
the facts that Sunday Schools were an
important factor to the church. \
"Sunday Schools in History," the ^
first topic, (and one not well understood),
was discu93ed by Bro. W. R. a
Briscoe, and wa3 made a most inte- i
resting as well as instructive subject, 5
and the progress made in Snnday ^
[ School interest was gratifying.
Space will not permit me to touch
upon the topics as they came ap and
I were discusscd by the appointed c
speakers. *
Rev. E A. McDowell preached the *
II o'clock sermon (Saturday) in the ^
ahRpnne of R. N. Pratt, the regular aD- r
? - ' 0 r
pointee, and Rev. "W. R. Briscoe n
preached at 8.30 o'clock at night. *
The Sunday morning session and q
Sunday School exercises were very
interesting, and were attended by a
large congregation. Tbe good seed
sowed daring this session became ~Q
manifest by a very liberal contribution ?
of over $20 towards the building of a 5
ohapel at Winnshoro tor tne oenent "
of the factory at that place. ?
At 11 o'clock the new pastor, Rtv. v
J, L. Freeman, of the Winnsboro and
Ridgeway churches, preached his first
sermon before this convention, and ?
the verdict .of all present was, that ?
these cnurches were fortnnate churches, i

A certain Irishman, having been
challenged to fight a duel, accepted the
conditions after much persuasion on
the part of his friends, who felt confi
dent of success. Jtiis antrgomsc, a r
lame man, walked 011 cratches.
When the place for the shooting had
been reached, the lame man's seconds 1
asked that he be allowed to lean
against a milestone which happened to
be there. The privilege was allowed,
and the lame man took his stand.
The Irishman and his seconds drew ,
off to the distance agreed upon?100 ]
feet, Here Pat's courage suddenly t
failed him, and he shouted to the lame
man: ;
"I've a imall faver to ask of ye, t
sor." 7

Pat answered: (
"I told ye thot ye miffht lean agin i
tbe milepost, and now I would like j
the privilege of leaDiDg agin the next

The laughter wich followed spoiled
everybody's desire for a figbt, and the

Women Should Know It. j

and miserv ?> c^use the nature of their
disease is uut correctly understood.
They have been led to believe that
womb trouble or female weakness of
some sort is responsible for the many
ills that beset womankind.
Neuralgia, nervousness, headache,
puffy or dark circles under the eyes,
rheumatism, a dragging pain or dull
ache in the back, weakness or bearingdown
sensation, profuse or scanty
apply of urine witn strong ouor, i
frequent desire to pas3 it with scalding
or burning sensetion, sediment zo it
after standing in bottle or common
glass for twenty-four hoars, are signs
of kidney and bladder trouble. j
The above symptoms are often at- '
tribated by the pa.ient herself or by '
her physician to female weakness or
womb trouble. Hence, so many fail
to obtain relief, because they are treating,
not the disease itself, bat a reflection
of the primary cause, which is
Kidney ironoie.
In fact, women as well as men are
made miserable with kidney and bladder
trouble and both need tfce same
remedy.
Dr. Kiimer's Swamp Root is the
great discovery of the eminent kidney
and bladder specialist, and is easy to
get at any drug store for fifty cenis or
one dollar.
To prove its wonderful merits you
may have a sample bottle and book
telling all about it, both sent absolutely
free by mail. Kindly mention The
