One of the best laws passed by the
last legislature is that one which pro
hibits school trustees from employing
teachers that are closely related to any
of them. This does away with the job
hunting feature that brings about the
creation of many a new and useless
school district, and does away with a
viciou ? practice in many of the wealth

not be imposed on by the trustee any
longer in order for the trustee to pro

it is one which will bring pleasure of
the right kind in its train, and will
awaken a greater interest in things
literary. The young people of our

An Important Ruling.
At the last term of our court J.
W. DeVore Esq., of our local bar,
raised the poiut in the case of the
State against Whitlock that a
married woman had the legal
right to testify ?D behalf of her
husbaLd io a criminal case. It
has been held by most if not all of
the circuit judges as well as the
bar of the State that a married
woman had no such right in the
courts. Mr. DeVore, however,
maintained his point with so much
legal backing that Judge Aldrich
reversed his own decision in this
same case and bela that married
women can testify in cases where
their husbands ave involved on
the crimnal side of the court. The
marr ied women of Edgefield owe
Mr. DeVore a gold and silver cake
for thus giving them their right*
in the halls of justice.
GOLD MINES OF ABBEVILLE
Old Stori?? Revived by Recent
Troy, April 16.-Special : From
rumors afloat it seems that the gold
interests in this section are to be
developed. Parties haye been
prospecting, and as saysmade range
from $10 to $100. There is no doubt
about the gold being here, and
many people believe there are
fortunes for tho?e who will dig.
An old miner writing in last Sun
day' s Angusta Chronicle sayB :
"The Dorn mme was the richest
vein ever discovered in this coun
try, and the Belknap-Smith mine
is to day one of the best payiDg
in the South, and in my opinion
there is no reason why there should
not be a thousand just as good,"
The Dorn mine is at McCormick,
about five miles from this place.
The firtitvein wasdiscove ed some
where in the 50's, and Mr William
Dorn, the owner, with a few hands
and crude machinery often got out
over $1,000 worth of gold in a day.
In a few years the mine yielded
more than a mill?n dollars. Most
of the gold was taken from pockets,
the last of which was exhausted
soon after the war, Mr Dorn, who
had spent his fortune in
philanthropic ways and in negro
investments, was then forced to
discontinue work, and soon died
in poverty. The mine is now own
ed by Mrs Cyrus McCormick, of
Chicago, Mr L.W.Jordan, of Sen
eca, and ochers, who so far have
taken no steps towards reopen i ug
it. Experienced miners have said
that there is still more gold in the
mine than has ever been taken out,
and after a heavy rain nuggets of
jold are often found in the vicinity.
A man living near McCormick
bas bupported his family for years
by washing surface ore. Traces
of gold have been found from Little
Mountain, six miles south of
rVbbevihe, to the Dorn mine, a
i is tance of twenty miles. Several
.hafts havo been sunk near Troy,
ind last summer a nugget which
sold for $10 was ploughed up on
the outskirts of the town. There
ire several valuable miues on the
Bradley estate near here, wh;ch
will be opened at an early date.
A Pennsylvania company is
now in posession of the mine at
Little Mountain, where they have
placed $20,000 worth of machinery.
The Reynolds mine, three miles
from here, which was discontinued
on accoui.t of sulphurete, will soon
be reopened. This mine has assay
id $100 to the ton.
One of the most valuable veins
?o far discovered i3on the land of
Prof William McCaslau, of Clinton,
The vein is about two mih-s thin
3ide of Little Mountain. The ore
basaBsayed very high, aud nuggets
as large as grains of corn have been
picked up. With a crude rocker
the ore has yielded from $22 to
$17 per day. Prof McCaslan's father
refused $20,000 for the place. Yaars
ago, in an account of his journey
through this section. Prof L&Borde,
of the South Carolina College, fore
told that the mineral springb of
Meriwether County, Georgia; would
?laim the attention they now hold,
ind at the same time he predicted
thai the gold fields of Abbeville
Dounty, South Carolina, would
some day yield immense fortunes.
Experienced miners say that the
?old is here, and all that is needed
s capital to develop it.
Mineral deposits were discovered
m this part of the State by the
Spaniards over three hundred
years ago, In 1540 DeSoto, in his
?earch for eold, reach?d the capital
of the famous territory of
Sofachique where he found a
people wbo made their hatchets
from an alloy of gold and cooper.
The Spanish Governor was treated
with great hospitality by Xualla,
the beautiful Iudian Queen, until
he had desecrated some of her
The Indians refused to tell where
the gold was obtained, the Span
iards turned from the land they
bad so long sought and proceeded
towards the Dahlonega mines of
Georgia. Xualla's capital was
situated at the juncton of the Broad
and Savannah rivers, about fifteen
miles from here.
All of the early historians of
South Carolina emphasize the fact
that there are valuable mineral
resources in this part of the State.
Adair tells of a silver mine which
was operated by a gang of counter
felters. Logan adds that all traces
of this mine, like many others in
the same region, have been lost,
Lawson states that from time
immemorial the Indians were
acquainted with valuable mines of
gold and silver in upper Carolina,
but that they concealed the fact
for fear their lands would be settled
by the whites. Cox tells of a
quicksilver mine used by the
Indians, the site of which cannot
now be found. Mills says that as
late as 1815 the Indians were
working a very rich 3ilver mine,
the location of which they carefully
concealed from the whites. It is
a well known fact that the Indiaus
mined their lead somewhere in
this region, and traces of other
minerals are frequently found.
Logan's History of Upper South
Carolina, written in 1859, tells of
an ancient silver mine, which was
once worked, near the site of old
Rock Church, on Coronaka Creak,
in this county. Traditon says that
it was discovered by a band who
had probably deserted from De
Soto's camp on the SavannahJRiver.
The entire party, except two, were
massacred by the Indians, who
' threw the entire mass of the ac
cursed metal they had raised back
into the mine, and so completely
restored the spot to its primitive
aspect that no vigilance or ekill of
civilized men has since availed to
recover the lost treasure. The
precious secret doubtless passed
away forever with the red men."
In 1761 when au ann under
James Giant. Governor of East
Florida was brought up from Char
leston it encamped for a few days
in this vicinity. The surrounding
settlers learned from some of the
old soldiers that "the Pointing
Bock, which stood close on the side
of the old Keowee trail, had be?n
noted by the escaped Spaniards
as a lanimark by which their
treasure might once more be found,
lt lay just two miles east of that
Logan says that the story of the
lost mine exerted a wonderful in
fluence upon the sons of the old
men of the Coronaka settlement,
who had sei ved in Governor
Grant's army and who can scarcely
be charged with being inordinately
sentimental or romantic.
Early in the present century a
company composed of the some of
thu most practical men in the
neighborhood, most of whom had
been Revolutionary soldiers, was
organized to search for the lost
mine, and since then several other
attempts were made to find it.
LDgan concludes :
"The old Spanish mine is yet
undiscovered. It may be however
that when all is forgotten-when
the tradition itself has faded
from the memory of man and the
last witness of its influence upon
the minds and imaginations of
our grand-fathers is no more
some fortunate farmer, while en
larging with enlightened judg
ment the operations of his agircul
tural improvements deepening his
furrows and lengthening his
ditches, will one day unexpectedly
lay open the lost mine and treasu
res of the Spaniards."
When capital is brought here
to develop the gold mines already
discovered some wonderful re
velations may be made in regard
to the mineral resources of the
Withdrawing: Troops from Cuba.
Spain will soon withdraw 40,000
troops from Cuba, the movement
to begin when the rainy season
sets in. The initial movement will
be thi departure of 10,000 Spanish
troops from Havana for Spain, and
within a short time after that 30,
000 troops. Whether thi3 move
ment is to be construed in favor of
or against the insurgents is not
possible now to say. The Spanish
insist that it means only that
little or nothing remains of the
insurrection, the Cuban con
tingent, on the othej hand, insist
that the Spanish financial
resources are exhausted, and that
the troops are to be withdrawn be
cause of lack of mon^y to keep
them in the service.
Judge William R. Day of Ohio,
whom President McKinley .has
appointed to go to Cuba on a
special mission in connection with
the Ruiz case, will leave Washing

The result of the shower in such
a case is apt to be in ternal conges
tion, which may be disastrous.
It does not follow, however, that a
perspiring person shculd not bathe
until cooled off. As a matter of
fact, if the person is not exhausted
the fact that the pores are open is
rather advantageous than other
wise, as tho reaction is enhanced
and will probably follow more
energei;icaly. A bath ?hould never
be taken within two hours of a
heavy meal. The first effect of
immersion in warm water is to
seriously derange the digestive
process if that is progressing at
the time, and by a physolog
ical effect that naturally follows,
to unbalance or derange the whole
nervous system. Tho result of this
is extremely dangerous to the
bather. There are numerous in
stances of severe ilhtnss and even
death, caused by bathing while

Dallas, Texas, April 25.-A
special to The News from Eufala
Indian Territory, says a series of
cloud bursts and heavy wind and
rain storms occurred in and arouud
that place last night, extending
over about 100 square miles. The
rain was heaviest in 50 years.
Farm houses, fences and crops
were washed away. The North
Canadian railroad bridge is so
badly damaged that trains could
not pass over it. The sou' ti bound
passenger train had scarcely pas
sed it at 9:45, when the south end
gave way. Mauy trains are tied up
at this point, and there are im
passable washouts for 20 miles.
Damage to crops cannot be
estimated. Nearly every acre of
ground for many miles in all
directions will have to be replant
ed. Many farm? are und^r water.
Wagons, small houses, etc., floated
down the South Canadian river
this morning. No loss of life is
yet reported. The cyclone passed
about 5 miles south of Eufala,
destroying houses and killing cat
