DEATH OF MRS. BELLE McC. TODD.
A telegram reached Due West Sunday
evening annuncing the death that
morning of Mrs. Belle McC. Todd at
Timber Ridge, Ya., "after a brief ill
ness." No other particulars. This 1
will be sad news to many. Mrs. Todd
spent a considerable portion of her life *
in Due West. She was a useful and
active woman in chnrch work. We 1
well remember the great interest she f
took in her Sabbath school class, of ]
which she was a teacher. Timber J
Ridge will miss Mrs. Todd. For sev- J
er%l years she has spent the winter
months in St. Augustine, Fla., with t

BIT. ZIOJJ SOCIETY.
The regular quarterly meeting of <
Ht. Zion Society was held at 10 ,
o'clock Thursday morning, and it was |
in every respect a mast satisfactory i
one. The attendance was unusually i
large, and the members present dis- j
played a gratifying interest in the ]
proceedings. I
The work done was mainly of a t
routine nature, but some of the mat- j
(ers brought up for discussion are of |
decided interest to the public.
The library committee reported that '
seventy new volumes had been pur- j
chased recently, and that the building j
of additional shelves in the library is {
necessary. Funds were appropriated g
to defray the expense of this work.

Mt. Zion between four and five hun- j
dred volumes, the nucleus of what is t
sure to become in time a large and <
valuable collection of books.

MK. DUNN'S RESIDENCE BURNED.
Mr. G. B. Dunn's residence on lower
Congress street was completely de
itroyed by fire at midday Monday. A1
^2.20 o'clock fire was discovered beween
the roof and ceiling of the
kitchen and the alarm was given imnediately.
The fire had gotten such a
jood start, however, before the firenen
could get in their work that all
sfiorts to save the bnilding proved
utile. The firemen and a great many
>thers who volunteered their services
or the oecreion fought pluckily to save
he property, and when forced to give
ip the fight did so most regretfully.
Nearly all of the furniture and per;onal
effects of the family on the first
loor were saved, but almost everyhing
in the rooms upstairs was deitroyed.
Offing to the dense smoke
n the upper story it was almost an
mpofcsibility from the first to remain
ong enough to do any effective work.

the road has been well worked '

good condition. A few places on *
slopes of bills need some work. The
hill west of Wateree Creek this side J
of Preston Rion's place has been
worked and in dry weather keeps good. 1
It is too steep and needs to have the
sammit knob cut off to a proper grade.
The road through the bottom and ,
across the stream is now in good con- I
dition?a result of the dry weather.
But experience proves that 'the road ,
here is generally very bad. It is our f
judgment that a causeway should be f
laid at the worst places with a ditch }
on both sides and a suitable bridge ;
over the stream. The hill on the east '
side is in bad condition and ought to
be thoroughly worked. The road be- 1
yond through the Rion place, is tolerably
good up the approach to Morrow e
Hill where the road from Poplar ?
Spring to Ridge way runs into the i
Winnsboro and Longtown road. This 1
is almost impassable and is the most .
difficult job by far of the entire twelve
miles. To make this a good road ;
much labor will be required with powder
and pick. The grade ought to be
greatly reduced by cutting down the
summit and building up the lower in- !
cline. At the bottom of this hill a
road to the right leads to Ridgeway. J
Thpnrp nn through the Wvlie Davis
place the roa?f is generally level and ?
good.
Ths \vo> cru branch of Dutchman's
Creek is dry and nt present the road is ,
good, but here is again needed the J
causeway with ditches and at least two
bridges. Beyong this creek the road ,
has 9 few rough places, one of which
is covered with watei'-worn pebbles ;
and small stones, which utilized by the !
chain gang would famish material to
macadam the rjad at little, expense.
Thence through Lloyd Davis' place .
the road is pretty good until it reaches
the much-talked of 10-mile hill. There
some of the committee led their horses
down hill, others kept their seats. This 1
bill, but for neglect, is a small afisir
comparatively. It consist of gravel 1
and is about seventy-five yards long
and can be made a better road than (
Gowley's hill at one-fifth the expense. J
Then we come to east Dutchman's '
Creek. No water that we could see
ruunmj, but a puerile hole in the road,
the water reaching nearly to a borse's
belly. This place need3 a little causewaying
and a little ditching above so
as to cODfJue the waiter to a channel,
and a small bridge. The material of
the icur bridges can be obtainad on
the ground except plank for flnoriug.
About oue mile from the jr?r>ctiov. with
the Durham road there is a goor*.
deal of road covered wi.h pebbles and
water-worn rocks also, from that junction,
which is about one and >; half
miles from the Longtown ;oad, ->ro!> ]
bly half the wav i? covered w;th the '
same kind of rock?. These -cake ]
travel disagreeable but furnish material ?
for making the road free ?'jomu:udin wet
weather.
A ehort distance fi*om Simpson's
store a road bore off to ?he left short- j
ening the distance to Longtown some* i
what. This has been closed but should ;
be opened.
On the whole we conclude that,
With a thorough working by the chain
fang aDd probably with a change of
ocalitie3 at certain points for better
grades and shorter distances, which
ve are informed is easily attainable,
he communication between Longtown
.nd V/iunsboro will be much easier
han that upon some other roads leading
iuto the town. Inasmuch as we
lelieve that the location of the road
an be greatly improved in places, we
tronglv recommend that a competent
>erson be selected to make a survey of
he road between Winosboro and
fimpsoEi's store on tbe Longtown road,
nd ihat thi? meeting raise fifty dollars
o defray the expense of tbe survey.

IS IT BIGET ;
For an Editor to Becommend Patent
^Medicines?
From Sylvan Valley News, Brevard,
N. C.
It may be a qaestion whether the ?
editor of a newspaper has the right to
publicly recommend any of the varioos
proprietary medicines which flood the
market, yet as a preventive of sufferins:
we feel it a duty to say a good
word for unamDerianrs uonc, uooiera ,
and Diarrhoea Eemedy. We have .
kDOwn and ased this medicine ia oar '
family for twenty years and have always
fonnd it reliable. In many cases
a dose of this remedy would save
hours of suffering while a physician is
awaited. We do not believe in depending
implicity on any "medicine for
a cure, but we do believe that if a
bottle of Chamberlain's Diarrhoea
Remedy were kept on uand and administered
at the inception of an attack
much suffering might be avoided
and in very many cases the presence
of a physician would not be required.
Al least this has been our experience
during the past twenty years. For
sale by Mc Master Co.
