Abbeville's Encouraging Outlook.
Work on tlio new storehouse of the Messrs.
wtnte Brothers is progressing rapidly. The
walls are going up as fast as it is safe to put
up brick walls, and the whole work will go
forward promptly to completion.
Asa whole, Abbeville has as tine a Public
Square as any to !>c found in the up-country,
and the new storeof theMessrs. White Brothers
will add beauty and symmetry to a square
which already excites the admiration of all
visitors from abroad.
! Mr. T. P. Quarles will buy cotton this season.
He has au unlimited amount of money
at his c'ommand, aud he can pay the highest
prices for the staple.
As soon as cottonseed shall be found to be
of merchantable quality our gingers will a^
once enter the market for cotton seed, and
pay liberal prices for all that may be offeredThe
outlook for business for the ginners
seems flattering. There is a growing disposition
on the part of planters to bring their cot ton
to town to have it einued, where a ready
market for their seed can be had, and where
there is never trouble nor delay in procuring
the necessary bagging and ties.
Another important factor in the business of
the town is the Abbeville Bank, where money
can be had to enable business men and others
to effect their desired euds.

Tickets announcing the marriage of DrHenry
Donald Wilson, ol Abbeville, and Miss

October 1", 18S8. The bride will come to the
home of her husband in Abbeville, where
they will remain for a short while only. In
November the Doctor and his bride will take
their leave of this place to live Ln Bainbridge,

The town, and the church of which he is an
active member, will realize a loss in Dr. Wilson's
removal, He is a good citizen, an excellent
dentist, and an earnest worker in the
church. The entire community will join ub
in regret at losing so popular and so useiul a
citizen as Dr. II. I). Wilson.
The Trade of A1?ltevllle.
Our merchants are getting in immense
\ stocks of goods and arc about ready for the
largest trade that has ever been done in
Abbeville. There has been a general marking
down of prices, which together with attractive
stocks, will have the elTcct of draw,
ing trade from distant parts of the county.
The people as a rule appreciate the advantages
of a Rood market, and this alone assures
a good trade to Abbeville.

I From The News and Courier, September 19,
The price of the Weildy yew* and Courier, us
announced yesterday, has heen reduced to one
dollar a year.
At this price it is by far the cheapest newspaper
in the South. 11 is a newspaper which
meets the requirements ol' tho fanner, the
politician ami the merchant and it is always
a prime favorite with tho home circlc.
Crowded into its twelve pages and seventytwo
columns there is all the news of the State,

itself," together with just such light reading
as will interest the old and young, and atnuso
The Weekly Nvxcs <tnO Courier, while thoroughly
American, is radically a Southern
newspaper, aud devoted to the interests of the
Southern people as a component part of the
people of the United States. It is Democratic
in its policy and principle, but broad and
national in its aims.
Postmasters throughout South Carolina aud
throughout all the States are invited to become
agents of the Weekly Xnvs and Courier.
They will be allowed an ample commission.
They should commence operations at once in
enlarging the field of usefulness of the Weekly
Sews una Courier, as it is not desirable to have
more than one agent ia the same town.
True friends visit us in prosperity
only when invited, but in adversity
they come without invitation.
To aid ever so humbly in the overthrow
of a monstrous evil is glory
enough for a life time.

Jacksonville, September 22.?
Eight long weeks have passed since
the first case of yellow fever, that of
McCormick, was developed at the
Grand Union Hotel. To-night the official
records show a total of 1,745 cases
and 202 deaths. The daily list cases
and deaths during the past ten days
has been fearful in a city of the size of
Jacksonville, with two-thirds of its
To-day the record of new cases was
again broken, footing up the figures
163. Of these 103 were colored people,
who are being freely reported. It is
now almost certain that many hundred
colored people have had the fever and
recovered without treatment or physicians.
The old theory that negroes are
not liable to contract yellow fever has
been exploded. It nas been demonstrated
that they are almost as susceptible
to an attack as the whites, but
that the issue is rarely fatal with
them; probably never unless the fever
is complicated with organic diseases.
An old and eminent local physician
said to-day, "Negroes never die of yellow
fever unless they call in a doctor."
gainesville and mcclenny.
Jacksonville, September 22.?No
new cases or suspects. The sick are
all doing well.
A special from McClenny, reports 5
new cases during the last 24 hours,
and one death. The town is in great
distress ; work of all kinds suspended,
and additional aid will be sent from
this place at once. The supplies here
are short, though large orders are in
transit. Short rations will have to be
issued if the freights are delayed.
a letter from the mayor of jacksonville.
New York, September 22.?The
charity committee of the Produce Exchange
telegraphed to the acting mayor
of Jacksonville to draw on their
bank for $500 for the yellow fever sufferers.
Acting mayor Gerow wrote
the committee to-dav that the residents
of Jacksonville had hoped to
fight the battle alone, but the enemy
proved roo strong, xie says :
"We made known our willingness at
length to be helped by the citizens of
other cities, and contributions have
been pouring in very generously, for
this we are extremely thankful, but
we do not wish it to continue too long.
We have enough on hand to take care
of Jacksonville alone for thirty days.
We expect tbe fever to be quenched before
.December. The laboring class
with us, chiefly negroes, have not the
frugal and thrifty habits of Northern
men in the same social rank. Again
other poiuts in the State need aid, and
will need it. We have sent some of
our supplies aud funds to McClenuy
and shall continue to do so. This
morning the report conies that there
are several cases iu Gainesville. Here
will be another field to which we shall
gladly send assistance such as may be
in our power.
"Krom the above you will see that
while we are not desirous of imposing
on our fellow-creatures, or of making
personal appeals to them for help, yet
any further sums their own generosity
may prompt to give will be thankfully

Camp Perky, Fla., September 22.
?On the occasion of the departure of
Burgeon General Hamilton from this
camp the refugees met and passed resolutions,
heartily thanking nim for his
uniform kindness, courtesy and attention,
endorsing Camp Perry and declaring
it unexcelled by any military
camp iu the country. The resolutions
were presented by the Rev. Dr. Roche,
at the station, where the refugees had
assembled in a body, as the doctor was
about to take the train, and the suigeon
general was visibly moved at
these expressions of appreciation of his
services ami made a brief address in
reply. He said in part:
"lam deeply touched by your sympathy
and kindness. I am all the
more sensible of this, because' of the
unjust criticisms directed against me
in my official capacity and the attacks
upon my private character. These
commenced when I announced the
presence of yellow fever in Florida last
spring. As a matter of fact the presence
of fever in this State was reported
bv me to vour Governor nearly, or
quire two weeks before I made any
public announcement of it. That
statement was true; the fact of the establishment
of this camp and that we
'aru here to-day in this pine wood, tooj
well attests; but that, is all past now
and let it be forgotten and forgiven.
When I came here and hoisted our
dear old ling over this camp, I as a
Government representative felt that I
wanted every man, woman and child
coming here*to know that they were
no longer poor, panic-stricken, feverhaunted
refugees, but welcome guests
of our common country. The warm,
ruddy stripe of the banner which
floats above us are emblematical of our
Christian love for its children, and
each star in that azure field represents
a State, every one of which must be
protected when in distress, and suffered
for if need be. These sentiments,
T know, actuate the officers of the ser-j
vice whom I leave in charge.
"I thank you, ladies and gentlemen, I
for your courtesy, and in saying farewell,
I assure you that you have made
it a difficult word to speak."

Louisville's Latch Striii?H on the Ontside.
Louisville, Ky., Sept. 22?At a
meeting of the physicians and others
called by Mayor Jacobs it was decided
to open the gates of Louisville to j'ellow
fever refugees. A train brought
in 135 from Decatur this morning.
There is no excitement here. At the
meeting of the doctors it was the sentiment
that Louisville was in no dan
ger. When the physicians gave their
views it was almost unanimously to
the effect that the city should not be
quarantined but that it should repeat
its humane act of 1878 in welcoming
refugees with open doors. President
Hewitt called for the report of the
committee which was read as follows:
The experience of years warrant the
physicians of Louisville instating confidently
to her citizens, and those
visiting the city, that on account of
our geographical and climatic conditions
Louisville can In* in no danger
from the spread of yellow fever by
contact with those from the infected
districts of the South who may seek
refuge here. The lateness of the season,
and the measures of safety adopted
by the State board of health, justify
in assuring our citizens thai there
is no danger whatever of the disease
gaining a foothold in the city.''
