State Superintendent ol Educa

wroth- because Governor Ansel,
without consulting bini, appoint
ed Hay ne F. Rice, Esq., of Aiken,
to fill the vacancy on the state
board of. education which Hon.
J. C. Sheppard declined to fill.
The toan of Mr. Martin's letters to
the Governor prove the wisdom of
the latter's course in not consult
ing him as to those appointed.
An official, who is capablo of wri t
in| such^insulting letters to the
state's chief executive is incapa

first, last, and always, for econo

State Prohibition Probable.
It begins to look like the legis
- lature in January will enact a
state-wide prohibition law. The
1 agitation is OD in every part of
the slate, and it ie quite probable
that South Carolina will fall in
line with Georgia and other pro
hibition states. Hon. John G.
Richards, of Kershaw, a v.<ry able
young man and one of the strong
est state dispensary, advocates in
the last legislature, was inter
viewed while in Columbia a few
days ago and expressed himself
in part as follows:
"Yes, in my judgment, the
hand writing on the wall spells
The sentiment for prohibition has
' been steadily growing for the past
several years, not only in this
State but throughout the South
and West. It is my d?lib?r?t?
judgment that the people of this
State desire a prohibitory law,.
?nd that public sentiment is such
that it can and will be enforced
Believing Ibis, and being anxious
to aid in every way that I can to
promote the best interests of our
people, I shall certainly advocate
a prohibition law."
Satisfied With Present Rates.
While there is a disposition to
oppress railroads in other state?
by a considerable reduction of
s and by the enactment of
ingent laws, it is inter
note what Col. B. L.
no general kick, about tho rat??;
Of course there are always a num
ber of individual comulaints bern
and there and some changos may
be needed in the law, but while I
do not wish to be placed in that
position of seeming to dicta!? to
the legislature as to what it 6bail
do, still I do not hesitate to give
it as my individual opinion that
any radical legislation at' this
time would be a very unwise step."
You will not be missing it

An irate fathpr, sixty-five yeare

Seldom does the human eye
witness a more joyous occasion
or a more enchanting scene than
that presented at i.be elegant
cquutry heme of Mr. and Mrs.
Jobn M. Mays on Wednesday
weuing, October the 16th. In
response to invitations issued to
the marriage of their eldest
daughter, upwards of a hundred
relatives aud friends from far Mid
near gathered, to do honor to the
occasion, as well an to participate
in its festivities.
As the hour, eight o'clock sharp,
drew near for the plighting of
troths, the gueits with oue accord
h^baudoued- the long piazzas aud
fathered in the spacious hall and
large front parlor, whose beauty
were brightened by the V3ry taste
ful decorations, in order thaLthey
might hear the momentous little
words tbat sealed the fate of two
young lives. The climax was
reached when the handsome groom

upon large tables were cbkia, cut
glass, silver, cutlery, pictures,
clocks, beautiful table linen, and

great variety and beauty of this
array of handsome presents, those
who viewed them were impressed
with their usefulness. The idea of

the cordial good-feliowsbip that

caused not a few to speak of how
this wedding reBombled those of

And in nothing did the Mays
Kemp uuptials resemble the ante
bellum weddings more than in the
sumptuous Wedding supper. In the
spacious dining room tbe guests
were arranged about the beauti

gance and richness could not be
Rurpassed. Besides the meat and

good cheer that characterized their
