t "STEALING A FAIR MARCH."
| Tie following which we take frcm
The State shows that Winnsboro's
reputation for carrying off the palm in
educational matters has spread to
other places: ^
' Winnsboro is always stealing a fair
' march ahead in educational matters.
- In 1879 Capt. Henry Davis gained the
. appointment to West Point. In 1880
p it was won by David Gaillard, who
was made colonel in the Spanish2
American war. This year the three
e vnnncr ladies who have obtained the
Fairfield scholarships for Winthrop
are all Winnsboro girls, Misses Helen
a and Jeanoette S-ewart and Miss Daisy

h IT OUGHT TO BE DONE
Rumors to the efleci that the capacity i
d of Ike -Fairfield Cotton Mill is to be j
ir dotbled are afloat, but they lack as
.. yet positive confirmation. The busiP
ness of the mill is growing daily and
jg the machinery down there is kept
,r hamming night and day to keep up
e with the orders that come in for the
ie goods turned out.
j. j The mill has been running long
enough to convince everybody of the
^! immense value s^ch an institution is
;s to a community. An increase in the
f. capacity of the mill would as a matter
t, of course, be a good thing for the
owners of stock, and it would bring
[y about a very substantial increas9 in
iy the business of the town.
We hope to be able befcre long to
make the positive statement that
Wionsboro's "greater" cotton mill is i
not simply an .idle dream. jn

A JOKE OX THE CASHIEK. a{
W
The Winnsboro Bank received from
Baltimore Wednesday the lollowing r
anonymous communication: t
"Get some one to sign your cashier's a
name to checks, who can write a legi- ?
ble hand. No one can read his scrawl." *
The members of The News and di
Herald staff are, unfortunately, pain- B
fully unfamiliar with the signature ^
that this cashier or any other is in the i
1 -L-'*- r r\ r n i
nauil U1 <.v vuwv?..
fact, our opportunities for making a
specialty of the study of signatures to J
j checks has been so limited that we can- fj
j not be properly classed as experts in ^
that particular kind of chirography. $\
Most of our communications from the u
bank come in the shape of little ^
printed notices- stereotyped forms
filled out with dates and other harrow- <]
iog details?to which the printed s!g- a:
nature of the cashier is attached. In ^
spite of our inability to render expert
- - t
testimony on the subject, nowever, jj
we think the cashier has been grossly v;
slandered. ^
A banker's signature, as everybody
knows, should show individuality and
it should be, above all things, very
hard to copy. Those Baltimore people
are evidently chronic kickers, and the
chances ara that they would raise &
some sort of a howl even if their a
checks came in with the cashier's sig- 3
nature looking like an impression from h
a Spencerian copy plate. C

3/r. Editor: It is a solemn and painduty
to chronicle the death of a
end under any circustances; but in
ase like the one I now write of the
k is doubly painful, from the fact
it the subject of this memoir was
it passing oat of her teens into her
entieth year and blooming oat into
ang womanhood in beauty and atictiveness,
admired by strangers and
red by those who knew her, with
r prospect for a life of usefulness.
Miss Nannie K Watt, daughter of
John J. and Mrs. Minnie (Scruggs)
att, died at the ?Hospital in
ashington, D. C., on the night of
i 18th inat. She had gone there
reral months ago for the purpose of
irning the duties of a traibed nurse,
;miDgiy a specimen of perfect
alth, vigor and beauty. It has been
d that death seeks a shining mark,
d while there is more sentiment than

llii X U ' V/ll U* 1^1 UUVV MW MVV?VM
respecter of persons, age or sex?
t it ia a fact, that ia this case he did
lect a shining mark.
Nannie wa3 from childhood a girl of
ong convictions and independence
cha-irer, and hid she lived to
itare womanhood woald no doubt
ve taken a high 6tandt if not the
ice ot a leader in her chosen occution.
She was the self-constituted,
.thfnl and devoted nurse for several
ars of her aged grandfather, (J. H.
rnggs, now deceased, and stood by
nand administered to hineeds as a
ie angel of mercy. Her devotion to
m seemed to know no bonnds.
It was the privilege of the writer,
one of her friends and admirers, to
md and look npon her lovely face as
e lay ia ibe cold embrace of death,
shrouded with a beautifal burial
be in a casket of as rich finish as my^
J fPU/* Afifiionlfif
es ever ueiieiu. xuc oumv vutuv
as furnished by the authorities of the
stitation where she was employed,
id seemed to be expressive of their
tpreciation of her.
She died from the effects of a severe
>eration, not under the surgeon^
life, but'in a few hours after being
moved from the table. Her last
ords were uttered as she lay in pre- o
iration for the trying ordeal and jast P
;fore it began: jl
Sow I lay me down to sleep, s;
I pray thee, Lord, my soul to keep,
nd if I die before I wake,
I pray thee, Lord, my soul to take."

ith her all is well, and we sorrow f
as others who have no hope. Her n

ry on the 20th inst., and a large
ithering of sympathetic friends at- c
mded the service, which was con- fc

Could Hot express the rapture of
Annie E. Springs, of 1125 Howard St.,
Philadelphia, Pa., when she found that
Dr. KiDg's Xew Discovery tor Consumption
had completely cured her of
1 hacking cough that for many years
bad made life a burden. All other
remedies and doctors could give her
no help, but she says of this Boyal
Cure?"it soon removed the pain in
my chest and I can now sleep soundly,
something I can scarcely remember
loing before. I feci like sounding its
praises throughout the Universe." So

of the fire company have for days
past been working hard and doiDg
their utmost to find out the trouble

)f our town rather an uncomfortable
feeling to know that the steamer
which for year3 past has done such
?p!endid work is not in good woiking

the imporlance of losing no time iu
repairing the engine, and all may rest
assured that as soon eb it is possible
Ibe engine will be in thorough working

hoped that in the meantime we may
not be visited by fire.
a. Mother Tells How She Saved Her Little

with medicines. Last summer
my little daughter had the dysentery
in its worst form. We tbonsht she
wou'd die. I tried everything I could
Ihink of, bat nothing seemed to do her
any good. I saw by an advertisement
in "our paper that Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy was
highly recommended and sent and got
a bottle at once. It proved to be one
of thj. very best medicine ? we ever bad
in the house. It saved mv little daughter's
life. I am anxious for every
mother to know what an excellent
medicine it is. Had I kuown it at first
it would have saved me f greit deal of
anxie-y and my little daughter much
suffering.?Yours truly, Mrs. Geo. F.

the old soldiers still suffer from it.

never found anything that would give
