The Abbeville Press and Banner
says "the News und Courier will

The opposition to the stock law
was much more violent, and in
numbers much more respectable
than the opposition to the dispen

A mule attached to a wagon ran
away on the streets of Aiken last
Friday, breaking his neck in two
places and smashing the wagon
and contents, 250 dozen eggs. Thia
was certainly a waste of raw ma

The prices of all liquors branded
with X's have been redu ;ed 50
cents agall?n in gallon lots at all
dispensaries, by order of the State

the expense of putting it up.

Stonewall Jackson Penn, colored,
was in town on Tuesday of this
week. He drove a bull hitched to
a one-bull wagon. His ostensible
reason for coming to town was to
have Auditor Halliwanger "6ess
his bull." His mo3t important
object however was to sell a shote
which he had in a box in the
wagon. For the shote he asked
$4.50, not all cash, but was willing
to accept one dollar in cash and
for the balance he would take," he
said, "a second handed mule with a
last year lien on him. So if auy
gentleman wants to make such an
exchange here is the opportunity
of a life time.

I can't cuss Tillman like the 'Squire,
Some how or others I like his ire,
Or, perhaps I need some anti fire
To blow him op to the sky or higher.
So I'll just put on my Tillmon glasses
And call the antis a crowd of asses
And give to them in broken doses
What they've been giving the people
Then if they think this paper's flopped
And wish.to hava their paper stopped
We will drop you off the roll by hollow,
But never give you oack the dollar.

Mr. Arnon McLendon, of the

a visir to Columbia county, Florida,
just before Christmas, has become
so enamoured with the country that
he is on the eve of buying an

Last week we mentioned some
good things a Methodist preacher
in this county had said about the
dispensary law This week we
have to report what a Baptist
preacher said on the same subject.
He was sitting in a store in our
village on a salesday in this year
when looking out upon the crowded
streets he observed that it was re
markable th;\t there were so few
men under the influtiKe of liquor.
He added ''Som*1 people don't see
any good in the dispensary law,
but I do." Not many words, to be
sure, but full of meaning.

straight-forward and correct in

The Worst On Record.
CHICAGO, Feb. 12.-The worst
blizzard which ever struck this
City so far as weather beareau re
cords show for twenty-five years,
is raging here. Streets traffic is
greatly impeded and walking is
accompanied with great danger to
life and limb.
Many persons have already been
injured by being blown to the
ground against walls and posts by
winds. The velocity is sixty miles
au hour, the highest ever recorded
for this city and a blizzard almost
double the velocity of winds is
blowing in the Western States.

The horse business is undoubt
edly more depressed than any other
branch of live stock interests.
The most competent judges find
no better reason for its present
dullness than over-production con
sequent upon more thau thirty
years of continuous prosperity.
It shows that the past developed
an enormous demand for the best
imported and home bred stock, or
the decline would have come long
ago. Improved business prosperity
may brighten the outlook, yet it is
undeniable that we now have too
many high-priced horses, far too
many scrubs,aud enough ordinary
ones to keep prices from advancing
to any great extent.
Southern farmers are in better

Some of our farmers have as

It closed on the 2nd inst. Miss

principal. Her patrons are much
pleased with her, and have engaged
her for another terra this fall. She
has taught here four yeare.
I must tell you of our enter
tainment at the close of school.
It was a charming succesp. The
children did beautifully, and Miss
Abney certainly felt repaid for the
training she had given them. Miss
Aileen Horne, a lovely blonde,
took a prominent, part. She sang
the "Man in 'he Moon" very
sweetly. Miss Emma Horne, her
sister, played the accompaniment
on the violin. Among the others
who took part was little Cloe

Annie Lybrand, cute and sweet,
Maggie Lybrand and Marina Hair
as "three little to'&4 stools." Miss
Nellie Lybrand, Mattie Cullum,
Annie Hair, Emma Lybrand, and

Little Ophie Hair and Sebie Ly

brought down the house. Robbie
Lybrand and Kelly Hair did well.
One gentleman remarked that he
was afraid to bat his eyes for fear
he would miss seeing something.

taste, and the house was crowded
to an overflow. I like such things,
it brings out the childrcn,and I will
vote for one every year.

"Pe floods dey ara a ragin'.
De ark isridin' high,
De beasts am growl in' loud,
De lightnin* 's Hashing' in de sky."
About 1S89 B. R. Tillman, seeing
signs of a coming flood, went to
work to prepare au ark of safety,
wherein he and his family and
various other righteous families,
who had nsver bowed the knee to
the Columbia ring or paid any
obeisance to the educated and re

might take refuge and avoid the

of all the beasts from all quarters
of the State and without discrimi
nation the clean and unclean were
huddled together. They managed
to get on harmoniously because
the storm without warned them
that it would be dangerous to leave
the ark. From the high windows
they could see the bodies of ring
sters, aristocrats or- best men,
Haskellites and all euch floating on
the turbid waters. On account of
fright, caused by such a scene,
they kept quiet and were obedient
to their master. They received
their portion of food and did

the widows and take refuge from

corners, but after awhile they be

There came a day when the
flood became very scarce and the
beasts began to set up a howl be
cause there was not enough to go
round. They began to prepare to
land the ark. Some of them want
ed to anchor in March, while
others thought it would be safe to
wait till July. So it has come to

is not large enough to hold all
who wish to enter and th9 feeding
troughs are not long enough for all

and clawing and scratching con

of the ark have been considering
various plan? for keeping it afloat
and at the same time preserving
harmony within its walls. Tho
indication are that certain unmau
ageble beasts will be thrown over
board and that the ark will keep
floating all right. About the most
interesting spectacle for the next
four months will be the manage

Farewell dear friends-a long
and everlasting farewell. We can
say nothing to assuage the poignant
grief of those you have left be
hind, but to that Power which can
wipe away the widow's tear and
paint a smile upon the orphan's
cheek, may they -kneel and appeal
not in vain for comfort.
Comfort them ?D their sorrow, oh
Thou judge of the widowed and
Thou father of the fatherless.
Their suffering is great.
Within a painfully short time
the hand of God has risen and
father and mother alike have been
beckoned to the unknown realms
of eternity-some there were who
had passed this life's allotment;
while others were in the full vigor
of health and happiness. But
now they lie with folded hands
across their breasts and their white
faces turned heavenward awaiting
tho mystery "when this corrupti
ble shall put on incorruption, and
this mortal shall put on immor
tality." Buiied beneath the cold
sod the autamn breeze now sings
their sad requiem, while on the sa
cred mounds lay garlands of flow
ers placed by tender loving hands.
The survivors of Company "I"
have looked for the last time upon
the faces of two of their noblest
heroes. "Jerry" and "Sam" as
they were endearingly called are
gone from them forever. Rapt
vision contemplates their souls in
heaven, where this day, in sweet
communion they embrace their be
loved captain and comrades, whose
voice in dying moans were last
heard on the blood stained field of
battle as shot and shell shrieked
athwart tho smoke dunned skies,
and battered human flesh to bloody
pulp. There is a silent Reaper
whose scythe is gradually mowing
down these brave old veterans
transferring them to that everlast
ing camp ground beyond the "si
lent river." Wait but a little while
longer and the last hero of this
gallant command will be gone
gone to another field where the
brave old warrior, battle-scarred
and weary-who served and suffer
ed-will find everlasting rest.
Then and not till then let their
grand reunion be held.
And when the bereaved orphans
left behind, shall enter that narrow
valley along which the immortal
souls of their dead fathers and
mothers have passed, and which
leads to the judgment seat'of God,
may they be able to say, through
faith in his Son, our Saviour, and
in the beautiful language of the
hymn of the dying Christian
dying but ever living and tri
"The world recedes, it disappears
Heaven opens on ray eyes! my ears
With sounds seraphic ring;
Lend, lend your wings ! I mount, I fly 1
Oh, Grave ! where is thy victory I
Oh, Death! where is toy sting?"
Adieu 1-a last arid tearful adieu
to you all. Beloved friends, fare
