Death on the Saw.
On the 7th instant, a colored man,
named James, met his death at Aull

riding carelesslyon the carriage and as
it reversed its direction, he lost his
balance and fell forward on the saw

We take occasion at this late day to
apologize to our good friend Mr. J. D.
Wedeman in having omitted mention
of-the gift of a sack of suiperfine flour,
ground at the new mill of Wedeman

Sow Oats? Sow Barley ! Sow Turnips!
The corn crop being almost a total
failure, the importance of sowing
abundantly of oats is made the more
patent. Of course this necessity is
known to no one better. than the
farmer, and we feel that urging the
matter may be unnecessary. But
should there be one waiting for advice
or to be urged, let us exhort him to
sow as soon and as often as is practic
able! Sow oats, barley and turnips!!

There is to be a reunion of Company
K. Lamar's old regiment, near Mount

men from Edgefleld and Newberry
and did valiant and noble service in

suspended a wire crate; when ready*
for market the, bales are placed in it
and by means of pullies are carried
over with almost electric speed. Here
tofore the grass had to be hauled a dis

Mollohon, Aug.15,
"I haze to see the darkest side,
I bate to be comnplaiuing,
But hang me it'my temper stands
This raining, raining, raining."
That's Holmes-the autocrat of the
Breakfast Table, and I can't help wish
ing that he had to spend the summer
in this .part of the habitable world, for
he was evidently singing of some other
place and time than this. Hang me if
my temper stanids this scorching,
withering, shining. The sun opens
his great, big eye in the~ early morning
and glares pitilessly down upon us,
without ever so much as blinking, the
live-long (lay. The nights here are
cool, and in the morning theecrops look
refreshed; but at midday the sun silent
ly suggests a "Wilt thou," whereupon
the corn blades become rope-, and the
cotton leaves hang like dogs' ears.
Mollohon is as dr as a powder-horn
and is 'getting drier. Our oldest citi
zens span a considerable stretch of
years in trying to find the equal of this
drouth; they say it is worse than that
of '81 and as disastrous as that of '45.
And yet the few clouds that float lazily
and mockingly past, seem bent on
giving us "niver a drap of wather, at
all, at all." Our farmers here take a
rather gloomy view of the crop pros
pects, though the cotton in this neigh
borhood is said to be the best between
Newberry and Laurens. In places it
is well fruited, but the bolls, which are
beginning to open, are little bigger
than small marbles, and the yield can
not be great. Ini calculating for the
future., little account is taken of up
land corn. There is a great deal of
young bottom corn which will do well, if
the rains comne within a few days. The
prevailing impression here is that the
farmers will have ample time for sow
ing wheat atnd oats next fall-thme cot
ton crop will soon be gathered.
A number of Mollohonites havc
gone to the mountains; partly for rec
reation. partly to see the mountains,
and partly to be awvay from the thirsty
crops while they are waiting for rain.
'One finds little pleasure in seeing his
crops and his hopes withering under
an August sun.
I saw a man yesterday who has no
time to go lishing; he has been too
busy all the sumnier-waiting for rain.
Hang him if his temper stands this
waiting, waiting, waiting !
On Sunday there was a big meceting
at Liberty Hall, big meeting at Dun
can's creek. and. big mieeting at Flint
Hill, colored Baptist church. Strange
to say, three big meetings on one day
did not bring a shower.
Last week the small dwelling house,
just above Liberty Hall, on the old
Young place. in which Mr. Luther Ris
er formerly lived, was destroyed by
fire. All the contents, belonginmgto an
old negress who was absent at the time,
were burned. Cause of fire unknown.
Mrs. Duncan, wife of Mr. Joseph
Duncan, in the lower edge of Laurens

There is no searcity of laborers out
of job, in Mollohon. The hands of
Messrs. Luther Riser and Jno. Scott,
and others, contracted to labor until
the first of August, thinking after that
time they could make money at cotton
picking. They are in wont of work,
and, what is worse, some of them are
out of "rations," and nobody needs
their services. It is likely that they will
set in for the year next January.

see him leave. The shadows of his life
are gradually lengthening, and in his

number some fair minded and peaceful
citizen may be appointed; many of
these conservators of the peace, are too
much the friends of legitation. But
such an one if appointed must be pre

of pay he will get but little except the
satisfaction of honorably filling an
offlee necessary for the public good. Mr.
Packer now has charge of the clerical

A Noble Deed to a Noble Man.
During the recent severe illness of our
esteemed friend, the Rev. Mark Boyd,
we learn through the Monitor of Edge
field, that the Edgefleld friends of this
good father in Israel came over and
worked out his entire crop. How
pleasant it is to hear of kind acts like
this. We are pleased to say that Un
cle Mark is better, and we trust may
be spared many more years to labor
in the Master's Service. Few families
can show the record exhibited by this
family-the three boys living, J. M.
Boyd and Geo. Boyd having been ac
eeptable ministers of the Gospel for
many years, while the third, Pettus
Boyd has but recently been taken into
the ministerial connection by the
Methodist Conference. The father
is greatly blessed in such worthy sons.

the C. & G. Railroads. Early one morning

of an August sun whose fiery heat seems tc
pierce through and through like red ho: ar

d our ears at Graniteville, one of the most
go-ahead little places In the State. The
melodious tones of a breakfast bell broke
upon our ears, and we thought that at least
here was refreshment, If not rest for the
weary. The wicked, however, did not cease
from troubling, for the terrible gamins fou
whIch this place is noted, created a regulai
small sized pandemonium along the streets
It seems tat a base ball match~ was to be
played that day between the Mechanics ol
Columbia and the Graniteville Club, and ol
all things in the world a base ball game is
like heaven to the small boy. It Is like man
a to the hungry soul. The game was one
score standing 2 to 1 in favor of the Mechan
ics of Columbia. The Graniteville fellows who
couldn't "catch on" to the pitcher's twisters,
were ruied out one by one. We understand
that the Mechanics are to play a match
game at Hendersonville next Saturday against
the Union Club, who are considered one of
the crack clubs of the State.
From Graniteville to Leesville we sped like
lightning through undoubtedly one of the
finest farming countries in the South, com
monly called the "Ridge Section." This
ridge extends from Northeast to Southwest
through the entire country striking South
Carolina along the borders of Old Fdgefield.
The crops here are fine, and, indeed, it would
be something wonderful if they were not.
Such a thing as failure is unknown. The
people are happy, pro.perous and refined,
have all comforts and luxuries of life To
them as to the youth in Richlieu there i= no
such word as "fail"; Johnston is the live,
best and largest place on the Ridge, and is
increasing steadily. The County Normal
School general meets here, and the place is
devoted to the cultivation of intellectual,
social and moral happiness. A dance was in
progress, and through the windows of Hardy

the gay mazes of the waltz or promenadinx
in the verandah, the fairest of Edgetield's
daughters and the bravest of Eigefield's sons
than whom Jere are tione fairer or braver.
From LeJe to Columbia we ride through
a veritable dert of sand and pines, with
nothing to relieve the monotony but Gubert's
Hollow, where there Is a splendid saw and
turpentine mill in operation.

knapsack on their backs and set out on foot
for a cheap and extended tour in the moun
tains. The extension is not elastic, and their
pocket-books loot as if they had been
stepped on by an elephant. They find it a
very expensive affair. There is nothing here
to allure or to deter, nothing lifts its head
above the level, but all is one obliterated.
unvaried waste. We feel as if we tread
the streets in loneliness and despair like the
Trojan returned amid the ruins of Ilium. The
politicians have fled to the mountains to
smoke One cigars and talk over the Presi
dential campaign. The courts of law are
deserted. The Judges of the Supreme Court
are taking a much-needed rest and recreation.
The belles and their sweethearts are dancing
beneath the brilliant chandelabra of Ashe
ville to the strains of soul inspiring music,
while darkness settles upon their beautiful
old home and silence reigns supreme.
This gloomy picture, however, will soon be
relieved by the State Normal Institute, which
will be in progress when this letter is pub
lished, and our capital will blossom for the
summer season. The entertainments, dur
ing the progress of the school are very
numerous and pleasant, fresh blood being, as
it were, infused into abe lifeless body.
The University buildings have been won
derfully improved lately. We would venture
to say that an old Alumnus of the institution
would hardly recognize them. They have
been entirely renovated from top to bottom
inside as well as outside. It Is a beautiful
site for a college. The shade invites one to
repose and Oriental meditation, classic as the
spot where McDuffie, Thornwell, Legare,
Preston formed the bright day dreams. wttich
their genius and character in after lite trans
formed into gtowing realities. Beneath the
dark Egyptian portals of the old Library or
around the beautiful Doric columns of the
old Chapel, they no doubt caught glimmer
ings of those noble forensic and senatorial
efforts that have since thrilled their State
and country. It is indeed a beautiful spot
and one well worthy the memory of illustri
ous men and gr2at deds.
The factories are steadily arising, and
there is now some hope that we shall begin
to realize the dreams of the much-abused
and much-praised canal, that eternal bone of
contention to the State. Workmen have

noise and chatter is like that which fills an
African forest with the shrill cries of\ Chim

It was the dryest, hottest ride we had evei

crops have improved since the rain.
