?The question now of absorbing
interest to Columbians is the location
of the union depot. There is great
difference of opinion as to where
would be the best situation for it and
probably when the situation is decided
upon there wiil be many .who will
cemplain and be dissatisfied. For
many years the lack of a real union
depot has been a source of great in
convenience IU people travelling auuui
the State, and the determination of
the railroad company to build a union
station is good news.

Fairfield has some claim distinguished
themselves at the Uolcmbia graded
school and won medals. These young
ladies are Misses Floride Barron and
Mattie Wardlaw. Miss Barron is the
eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. T.
Barron, who are so well known here
and Miss Wardlaw i3 the daughter of
Mr. Louis Wardlaw who at one time
lived in this county. These girls made
a splendid record at their school and
well deserved the honor conferred on
them.

that fionr of the best quality
will be made. As the supply of
wheat from this county will not be

owners will buy wheat in the West
from which thtsy will make flour.
Perhaps after a while when all of the
farmers plant wheat the home supply
will be safflciant to make the buying
)f wheat from the West unnecessary.

many years the Chautauqua at Monteagle
has been the only thing of the

and the one on thel9le of Palms should
prove a great saecess. There are
numerous reasons why the Isle of

?Contrary to the expectations of
every one, the long drought was broken
by a gentle rain instead of a dreadfnl
electric storm. On Sunday afternoon,
at about six o'clock, the rain began
and fell steadily and gently for several
hours, doing far more good than a
heavy, washins rain would have done,
for every drop sank into the parched
earth. After the intense heat of the
past week it was only reasonable to
suppose that when a rain did come
that it would be accompanied by a
heavy storm, and so many severe
storms have occurred recently in North
Carolina and other States. The rain
will do an amount of good, as everything
was sufl'ering from the drought
and the heat and vegetables bad stopped
bearing.

COUNTY SCHOOLS FOK TEACHEKST
The State published on Wednesday
a fall statement of facts regarding the
summer school to bg held at Winthrop
College June loth to July 13th. The
I fflrmlfr nf ihe seliool bas been chosen
and the most prominent professors
and teachers of the Sta(e have been
selected, Prof. R. Means Davis being
one of them. Prof. Davis will teach
political science. The following in
regard to county schools we clip from
Tie state:
After the close of this State school,
schools for teachers will be held in
each county. Fall announcement
concerning these will be made sooa.
These schools will continue in session
for four weeks, and will give instruction
in the subjects that now constitute
the substance of the common
school coarse. English, arithmetic and
geography. In a rapid review, the
students will be taught as they ought
to teach, and while learning intelligently
that before the principles and
ground work of these branches of
study, will incidentally and naturally
learn the best mathod3 of teaching.
But emphasis will be plaeed on matter
rather tban method.
The work done by these county
schools this year will be supplemented
next year, it is hoped, by courses in
' J i JJ I
nistory, pnysioiogy, urawiug auuuiuci
subjects taught in our schools in which
many of oar teachers are deficient.
All teachers who are not prepared to
do college work rapidly and so*ces3fully
are aduised to attend the county
schools rather thad the State school.
Any one interested may procure a
copy of the onnouncement by writing
to the State Superintendent, to President
D. B. Johnson, or to any county
or city superintendent. With the announcements,
blanks were sent to be
filled out and returned to the superintendent
by those wishing to be enrolled
in the school. About a thousand of
these were 6ent out vest?rdav ai;d the
day before. The first one tu fiil out
blank and return ic, and consequentl; j
the first one to be enrolled in the
school, wa3 Mr. J. Frank Foo3be, assistant
principal of Moant Zion Academy,
"Winnsboro, and editor of ths
Carolina Teachers' Journal. The blank
a9 filled out tells that Mr. Fooshe is an
A. B. and an A. M. graduate of Wofford
College, that he has taught s:;ven
years, and that he wishes to take the
courses in "The Constitution," in
"Latin" and in "Angle-Saxon.-v
Robbed the Grave.
A startling incident of which Mr
John Oliver of Philadelphia, was the
subject, is narrated by him a3 follows:
"I was in a most dreadful condition.
My skin wa9 almost yellow, eyes
sunken, tongue coated, pain continually
in back and sides, no appetite?
gradually growing weaker day Dy day.
Three physicians had given me up.
Fortunately, a friend advised trying
'Electric Bitters,' and to my great joy
and surprise, the first bottle made a
decided* improvement. I continued
their use lor three weeks, and am now
a well msn. I know they baved my
life and robbed the grave of another

DEATH OF MRS. DUNBAR.
Mrs. Janie Dunbar, of Chester,
formerly of Woodward, departed this
life on last Wednesday morning and
was interred in Concord ceinetsry on
last Thursday at 11 o'clock a. in.. She
leaves seven children and many relatives
and fr?p?ids to mourn her la
ment?d ?l1j> The funeral service
was conducted by Revs. McLaucbiin
and Kirkpatrick. In her death
Chester has lost a devout, lovely,
Christian character, one who always
loaned a ready and sustaining
hand .wherever duty called. It was
her delight in a Christian way to
i soothe the coach of the sick ana cheer
the drooping spirits of the disconsolate.
She never entered a task without ins
voking God's blessing and help; after
i the task was completed the same rigid
remembrance of Divine power was
, observed. Since she lived such a
s noble life, she died a glorious death.
. The community in which she bad
lived added its tribute to her memory
i and thanked God that "there was so
i much to mitigate the bitterness of I he
sorrows in the hope of reunion in
heaven.",
? When the body was brought here
. fur^bnrial, every place of business in
i town was closed and the whole community
united in paying honor to a
. true foldier of the Cross.

Frank Reynolds, of the Dalton Citizen,
gives the northern critics a sockdolager.
He relates a story to the
effect that Bob Toombs, when on a
' visit to Boston, just after the war, was
I asked by a gentleman of that city if it
I was true that we "plowed negroes in
j the soutb."
Toombs asked bis questioner in retarn
what was the value of a negro.
"One thousand dollars/' replied the
Bostonian.
"How many negroes would it take
to pull a plow
'About toU. "
"Tben,;; exclaimed Mr. Toomb3,
"do you think we are d- n fools enough
to employ $4,000 worth of negroes to
i plow, when a $200 mule would dor"

IN THE FOURTH DISTRICT.
Columbia Record.
"Col. Jos. T. Johnson, of this city,"
remarks the Spartanburg Free Lance,
"says it is his intention to again enter
the race for congress next year and he
is hopefal of success It is understood
that Mr. Stanyarne Wilson willaleo
aspire for a fourth term. Columbia
and Greenville will also have candidates,
while Senator Doaglas, of
Union, is being urged by friends to
antflp thai arena. There i? gome talk
about Hon. J. L. M. Irby, of Laurens,
shying his castor into the ring. You
may look for an interesting campaiga
in this district next year."
That is a very large field, with
Richland County yet to hear from.
There is considerable congressional
timber in this county and the voters
of the district will not always overlook
it. Moreover, the redisricting
bill is not dead?it is only sleeping.
It is too early to discu3s politics,
especially congressional politics. Too
much depends on the actions of the
legislature at its next session for a
clear view '.o Oe taken. But this
mnch cen be said: Stanyarne Wilson
is a very able joung man, who has
not made a bad record in congress.
If the district lines remain as at present,
tbe man who beats him will be
the next congressman of the fourth
uisirxci.
