Law About the Jury Commissioners.
There shall be appointed by the
Governor and confirmed by the Senate,
one officer for each County in the State,
to be named and dlesipiated as Jury
Commissioner, who, ith thle County
Auditor and Chairman of the Board of
County Commissioners, or a majority
of the same, shall constitute a Board
of Jury Commissioners for said Coun
ty. The Board of Jury Commissioners
of each county shall, once in every
year, during the inonth of January,
prepare a list of such inhabitants of
their respective counties, not absolute
ly exempt, as they may think well
qualified to serve as jurors, being per
sons of moral character, of sound
judgment, and free from all legal ex
ceptions; which list shall include not
less than one from every twenty vot
ers of their respective Counties.
If any member of the Board of Jury
Commissioners shall be guilty of fraud,
either by practising on the jury box
previously to a draft, or in drawing a
juror, or in returning into the jury box
the name of any juror which had been
lawfully drawn out, and drawing or
substituting another-in his stead, or in
any other way in the drawing of jur
ors, he shall be punished by a fine not
exceeding five hundred dollars, or be
imprisoned not exceeding two years
in the State Penitentiary.
This law shows that the responsi
bility of drawing jurors of the right
kind, is equally distributed amongst
the Jury Commissioner, the Auditor,
and the Chairman of the Board of
County Comm .issioners.

The Irby Trial.
The trial of J. L. X. Irby, charged
with the murder of Kilgore, took place
at Laurens, last week. The trial was
begun on Wednesday morning and
continued until about four o'clock
Saturday afternoon.- The State was
represented by Solicitor Duncan (he
was not assisted by Genl. Garlington,
as many supposea he would be,) the
prisoner by Messrs. Pope and Cald
well of Newberry, Mr. L. F. Yoimans
of Columbia, and Mr. Hugh Farley, of
Spartanburg. It is said that the evi
dence showed that no one of the bul
lets found in Kilgore's body, could
have been fired from Irby's pistol;
and we are told that the speeches
were exceptionally fine. The argu
ment closed about 4, p. m., on Satur
day, and the jury, after remaining out
about fifteen minutes, returned with a
verdict of not guilty. The verdict
gave general satisfaction.
Preparing for a Flood.
The following report reached us from

number of negro families on Mr.

an ark. They tarred and pitched a
double frame building, so as to make
it as much like Noah's ark as possible,
then carried their stock of bacon and
chickens and whatever other eatables
they had into the ark. They put the
children in one room and nailed the
door shut. When everything was
ready, they closed the ark and waited
for results. The results came pretty
soon, but they were not of the kind
looked for. Mr. Whitmire thought
that they might as well play the fool

Twenty-Eight in Fine.
The following extract will be Inter
esting to those who do not know why
February was made so much shorter
than the other-months:
In the distribution of the days
through the several months, Cresar
adopted a simpler and more commod
ious arrangement than that which has
since prevailed. He had ordered that
the first, third, fifth, seventh, ninth,
and eleventh months, that is January,
March, May, July, September, and
November should have each thirty-one
days, and the other months thirty,
excepting February, which in common
years should have only twenty-nine,
but every fourth year thirty days.
This order was interrupted to gratify
the vanity of Augustus, by giving the
month bearing his name as many days
as July, which was named after the
first Cmsar. A (lay was accordingly
taken from February and given to
August, and in order that three months
of thirty-one days mih not come to
gether, September and November were
reduced to thirty days, and tihrty-one
given to October and December. For
so frivolous a reason, was the regula
tion of Caesar abandoned for a capri
cious arrangement which it requires
some attention to remember.
A Negro Lad Lives a Week with An Inch
of Steel in His Brain.
On Monday morning, the 19th, Dr.
Pope was called to see Robert Cannon,
a negro boy aged about fourteen years.
The D)r. treated the patient for inflam
mation of the brain, but to his great
surprise his medicines werewihu
effect ; the case baffled his skill, and
on Thursday morning the patient died.
When the dead body was 'eing pre
pared for burial, a smaln incision
which seemed to have been made with
a knife, was discovered in the left side
of the head. This excited .suspicion,
and the Coroner held an iniqucst on
Friday, to ascertain the cause of the
Drs. Pope and Gilder, who made
the post mortem examination of the
body, testified that Cannon's death
was caused by a wound inflicted in the
left side of the head near the juncture
of the occipital and parietal bones,
with a knife, the blade of which hav
ing penetrated the brain to the depth
of an inch, was broken off, and remain
ed in the wound.
Two colored witnesses testified that
the colored people had a hot supper
at the Hoge school-house on the night
of the 15thi, and that about midnight,
they saw Robt. Cannon and two other
boys fighting Anthony Henly, near
An officer was sent for Henly, a boy
of twelve, who tried to make his escape
by running. At the inquest, however,
he confessed that he inflicted the
wound, but said that he was attacked
by three boys, and struck in self de
fense. He was unembarrassed and
gave his evidence in a plain straight
forward manner. He has been com
mitted to jail to await trial.
Though this wound was inflicted on
the night of the 15th, Cannon did not
suffer from it until the .following Satur
day night, and he never mentioned it
to any one. A small section of the
skull 'with the little blade of an ordi
nary pocket knife still firmly held
in the wound, was exhibited at the
-inquest. This will be kept for the
trial, and then preserved as a curiosi
ty. Dr. Pope thinks that this case is
without a parallel. And nothing but
the astonishin features of the case,
has led us to dscribe the unfortunate
affair so particularly.

couth in the extreme, and it was reserved
for American skill and ingenuity to bring
forth a machine of any practical value.
In order to appreciate the great advance
ment which has taken place it is only ne
cessar.y to compare one of the machines
built during the infancy of the invention
with one of the latest improved "Light
Running New Home."
In the manufacture of this mzchine old
ideas have been discarded, and in accord
ance with the progress;ve movement of the
age new mechanical principles have been
substituted. of such inherent and absolute
value as cannot fail to commend themselves
to the most casual observer.
For all kinds of domestic and manufac
turing work the "New Home" is unequaled.
All the really good points contained
in all other machines have been utilized In
its construction. Many new improvements
and devices have also been added, the re
suit of which Is a machine as nearly perfect
as it is possible to make one.
For simplicity, durability, case of man
agement and capacity for work, the "Light
Running New Home" has no rival, and the
happy possessor of one may rest assured that
he or she has the very best the world affords.
All who send for the Company's new il
lustrated catalogue, and enclose their ad
vertisement (printed on another page,) will

The World's Cyclopedia of Biography.
Cyclopedias of Biography are usually made
up of an alphabetical list, with brief sketches,
principally of the names of whom you have
never heard, and to know whom would add
greatly neither to your pleasure, nor your
mental worth. "The World's Cyclopedia of
Biography," now publishing, Is upon a dif
ferent plan. It contains only the stories of
the lives of the famous men and women who
have made the world's history; who are really
worth knowing, and who are written about
by authors often equally eminent, In the field
of literature, with the subjects whom they
describe. Each volume Is complete In Itself,
so that if you do not want, or cannot af'ord
all, you can take what best pleases, or is of
most worth to you. The five volumes thus
far Issued narrate she achievements of nearly
two hundred of the most famous and worthy
of the world's heroes. Volume IV, recently
published, a very handsome large 12mo., of
about 750 pages, for the price of 70 ets., con
tains a new and excellent "Life of Washing
ton;" a reprint of the standard and thrilling
Weems, ''Life of General Marion1" and a
new "Life of Oliver Cromwell,' by the
brilliant writer, E. Paxton: Hood. To Illus
trate the remarkable economy In cost, com
pared with previous publications: the pre
sent Importing price of the Life of Crom
well Is 83-here, in equally good type, hand
somely printed, with two other important
works thrown in, it costs only 70 cents; even
beyond this, as a means of most widely and
effectually advertising the biographical
series, the publisher will send, postpaid, a
paper-bound edition of the H a "Life of
Cromwell," to any address, on receipt of 15
cents, and then, If the purchaser desires to
secure the bound volume, will credit 15 cents
toward the price of the same. It will be
strange If such books, at such prices, do not
find their way Into almost every home.
"Biography Is the most universally pleasant,
universally profitable of all reading," well
saId Thomas Carlyle. How, Indeed, can the
heroes of "fiction" be compared in interest
with these heroes of all time, Washington
and Cromwell? JOHN B. ALDEN,
