The Hot Supper.
The entertainment Wednesday night
last was perfect in all that goes to
make an agreeable and recherche feast,
The viands prepared by the lady
friends of Excelsior Fire Engine Co.,
were delicious and abundant, and in
profusion of variety; even the tooth.
some and homely "possum and taters"
graced the groaning table, and it was
done up brown. It was indeed a rich
and royal feast. Too much pains can
not be given to the oyster stew, it was
grand, and the oysters were so thick
in the dish, that the delicious broth
could hardly be seen, an unusital
style for public stews. All the sue
cess is due the dear ladies, and we give
them the praise to which they are so
eminently entitled-they never fail in
any good work. The amount realized
footed up $150, a larger sum than
ever before reached on an occasion of
this kind. The vote on the Lantern
question was just right-no better
man than our energetic and versatile
friend, Mr. 1. W. Walter, could have
thus been honored.

People who delight in beautiful and

qualities of printing and- binding are

The list includes the works, complete,
of Dickens, 15 volumes, reduced in
price from $22.50 to $9.00 net; Thack

We clip the following complimentary
notico for the Georgia C'larion. Mr.
Davis wias formerly a residecnt of this
county, and for the~ last four or five
years had been living in Camilla Ga:
We learn that our el9ver young
townsman, Mr. D. D. Davis, has de
cided .to make his native State, South
Carolina, his home for the future, and
has located at Laurens, C. H., where
lie will carry on his business as jeweler.
It was hoped by 'all our best people
that he would return and resume busi
ness here. His removal is a loss to
Camilla. Very few business men have
ever miade a better record than hev.
Beginning under great difficulties he
built up a handsome business in thc
short space of two years, and estab)lish
ed himself in the confidence of the
community by his integrity and indus
try. He understands his business and
sticks to it. And so genial were his
manners and so generous his (disposi
tion, that it was a pleasure to his cus
tomers to deal with him. Such ener
getic, plucky, patient and upright busi
ness men are a great gain to any com

A Good Mechanical Paper.
We are in receipt of the "JIechanical
Ketes" for December 1st, and are
pleased to say that it is one of the best
illustrated papers that comes to our
editorial table. It is a handsome six
teen-page Journal, with fine original
engravings, and well worth the sub
scription price asked for it. On the
first page of the number before us are
several l ife-like p.ict ures, representing
the growing of grapes; and their man
ufacture into wine, as carried. on in
central New York; theee pictures are
only one of a series that have been
given during the past year of the In-.
dustrial Manufacturers of the Country,
and which are to be continued the
coming year. Such enterprise shows
that the publishers of the "News" are
alive to the wants of their readers.
Those of our readers who want a
first-class prcatical mechanical paper,
can hardly do better than subscribe
for the same. Sample copies are fur

C. 1H. Bishop, made a big hit iti
"Strictly Business" at the OperaHouse,
last niight, and gave the audience al
most three hours of as thorough en
joymnent as was ever had for the same

comnplimnent of calling him befort

The play is a comedy with a touch o:
melodrama. Mr. Bishop as P. P.

One of the ways that are dark.
A glib tongued agent from New
York, Charleston, Columbia, or even
from Kamkatska, or Van Dieman's
Land, well dressed, kid gloved, and
with an octavo dictionary of words,
kerosened and wound on an endless
spindle, set in front of the cavern be
tween his jaw and fixed on the per
petual motion principle, visits New
berry. He conies for advertising mat
ter for some business directory, or al
manac, of but little benefit to any one
but himself. He loses no time, and
with an energy peculiar to this kind of
genius, opens his mouth and the ma
chine starts. It works so well that
there is no escape from it, unless the
visitor could liee to the mountains of
Hepsidam, or to the other side of Jor
dan, where the weary can find rest.
He takes them in-the Cards-at from
$2,50 up to $10. .When he has gone
through the pockets of the people, he
draws on his right hand glove, pulls
down hiS vest, and with a self-com
placent chuckle, folds his cloak around
him, and with lighted cigarette, departs
to other fields. He succeeds. This is
picture No. 1.
Picture 2 is a melancholy one, be
cause the seeker of cards is to the man
ner born, is hard-working, homne-stay
ing, and would spend all the money
got here right at home. He has no
gloves, and his clothes are those he
works in, and he can't talk as fast as
the man from foreign parts. What he
is working for too is a legitimate home
venture, that will benme it those who
may patronize him and put a few dol
lars in his pocket; a consummaztion most
devoutly wished. What is the result?
with the exception of one or two, a
deaf ear is turned on him, a few coldly
say call again, we will think of it, and
the majority throw over it a horrible
wet blanket. Poor fellow, he goes to
his hole feeling a great big disgust.
He does not succeed-there is too much
home smell about him. What think
you of the two pictures?
General Beauregard's History of the
Tbe announcement Is made that the His
tory of the War, to the preparation of which
Gen. Beauregard has for some years been
giving his at tention, will be published dur
ing the winter.
Since it was first known that Gen. Beaure
gard had determined upon the publication of
such a work, it has been expected with gen
eral interest by the public, both North and
South. Able and distinguished critics who
have seen the manuscript characterize it as a
fascnating book, and the most interesting
and important contribution yet made by any
Southern writer to the history of the late war,
and say that it throws tottally new light upon
many events hitherto imperfectly understood
or wholly misunderstood. A most capable
and discriminating critic Is the Hon. Charles
A. Dana, the editor of the New York "Sun,"
who says : "It is, in my judgment, a
"very valuable and important work. It sets
"forth facts hitherto unknown or unapprecl
"ated. It sheds new and valuable light on
"controverted questions, and It narrates in a
"simple, unaffected, easy and engaging style
"the story of the most important facts of the
"great struggle. It Is especially worthy of
"commendation for the moderation andI tree
"dom from excitement with which it dist. s
"ses points that have been the subject of
"embittered disputes in the hands of other
"writers. While the view of the writer is
"powerfully maintained and fortified by un
"questionable documents, I have not found
"anywhere an angry word or undignified
The book will unquestionably be an ex
ceedingly valuable and notab!e addition to
the literature of American history. and must
have a very large sale throuahout the coun
try, both on account of the great moment of
the theme and the admirahle style in which
it seems to have been treated. It wIll, of
course, be of peculiar value and interest to
the people of South Carolina, on whose soil
the active operations of the great war were
so dramatically begun by Gen. Beauregard
himself. and with the long, brilliant and suc
cessful defence of which his name and fame
are inseparably ass,ociated.
The History will be published by Harper &
-Brothers, and will be sold exclusively by sub
srlpton, through their general manager,
Mr. T. K. Oglesby, of Atlanta, Ga, who will
have the State canvassed by active and in
telligent agents.-News and Courier.
Applications for agencies for Gen. Beaure
gard's book should be sent to Mr. Oglesby,
at Atlanta, with proper endorsements as to
the character and capacity of those applying.
