Symptoms of tho Disease and a Few State
ments Relative to Its Treatment.
In view of thc fact that there aro a
number of cases of scarlet fever reported
in sonto parts of the county, we publish
bolow rt few facts as to tho symptoms
and treatment of the disease:
Symptoms-Somewhere between tho
second and tenth day after OXpOBUi'U it
begins with languor, pains in the head,
back and limbs, with drowsiness, nausea
and chills; and these are followed tty
boat, thirst, cte. When the redness ap
pears Clio pulse is quick, and the patient
is anxious, restless, and sometimes delir
ious. The eyes arc red, tito face swollen,
tho tongue covered in the middle with
white mucus, and is studded with ele
vated points of extreme redness. The
tonsils are swollen and the throat red.
Tho greatest degree of redness is reached
on the evening of the third or fourth day
from its beginning, when a gentle mois
ture appears, the discaso begins to de
cline, with itching, and tho scarf-skin
falls off in branny scales. As the dis
ease advances the longue often becomes
suddenly clean, and presents a glossy,
fiery-red surface, which is sometimes,
with the whole lining of the mouth, raw
and tender. On pressing down the
tongue, the throat is swollen and of a
dec]), ilorid red; and on thc tonsils may
bo seen white or gray ulcers. This
makes swallowing very dillicult, ami ag
gravates tho sufferings of tho patient,
Tho great amount of mucus in these
parts causes ?Uso a continual rattling in
the throat. The glands under the ear
and jaw inllamu and occasionally break.
A peculiarity of the disease is that the
inflammation of tho throat almost always
runs into ulceration, and abscesses some
times form in tho ear and causo deafness
that may be dillicult or impossible to
cure. Dropsy in some lorin very fre
Treatment-In ordinary cases the
treatment should 1)0 very simple. Tho
apartment should be kept cool and the
lied covering light. The whole body
should bo sponged with cool water as
often as it is hot ami dry, ami the patient
lie permitted to (?ike cooling drinks.
Hesidcs this, in many cases, very little
is needed except to give a few drops of
thc tincture of belladonna night and
morning. When there is high fever give
tincture of veratriim in two to live drop
doses often enough to keep down the
pulse, and in addition to this the feet
and hands should bc soaked two or
three times daily in hot water, willi a
litth; ground mustard or Cayenne popper
stirred in. If the bowels ari' costive,
they should be. kept open by gentle laxa
tives-rhubarb and magnesia or Rochelle
salts, or by injections. The diet should,
as a rule, be liquid, but need mil neces
sarily be low. Milk, milk porridge.
Chicken or mutton broth or beef tea will
lie suitable, am) in many cases tonics, as
quinine In one-fourth to one-half grain
doses, the mineral acids in two to live
drops i n sweet cued water, orien to lif
ted! drops of tho tincture ol' iron every
three or four hours, may be required.
For the throat Double a common and
very useful application externally is fat
salt bacon, and internally nothing is bet
ter than equal parts of muriatic acid
ami honey, applied with a small brush or
swab, or diluted willi water and used as
a gargle. Sulphite of /.inc (fifteen lo
twenty grains to the ounce of waler) is a
good application, as also creosote or
carbolic acid in glycerine (twenty to
thirty grains to the ounce), or weak so
lutions of permanganate ol' potash (live
to fifteen grains to I lie ounce of waler).
Dining convalescence great care must be
used to prevent catching cold; warm
clothing should be worn. Quinine in
two to I bre 1 -grain doses three rimes daily
may be used as a Ionic, and lemonade or
cream of tartar water drank freely lo
excite the free action of the kidneys.

ashamed that thc church should have

Strange as it may seem, there arc even
now some baptists in Sout h Carolina who
aro Opposed to tho orphanage. Hut thank

writer would say no harsh words against
such, but would suggest a lillie work by

THE SOUTH CAROLINA BAPTISTS. i
BOU) Annual Convention at Grconwood -Pro- j
ceodlngs ol tho Body. i
0 icon wood, December 7.-Tho South ?
Carol lim Baptist Stato Couvoutlou con
vened here to-night in Its eightieth au- 1
puai session. It has for years boon the 1
annual custom to have the ministers' ,
conference meet on tho night and morn- ?
mg preceding tho formal opening"of tho i
convention proper. Last night tho largo
church was crowded to witness these
services, which woro conducted hy Kev. i
J. 1). Huggins. Tho exercises bogan
with tho singing of tho hymn, "Wo'ro
Marching to Zion."
Mr. Huggins rend a lesson from tho
Psalms, haning his remarks on tho text,
"Mow amiable aro Thy tabernacles."
Tho election of ofllccrs followed, and
Kev. H. If. Colley, senior Baptist minis
ter of South Carolina, in activo service,
was elected president, with Hov. J. A.
Thc opening prayer wnB mado by Hov.
Dr. W. T. Dorum x, now of Richmond,
who could not resist tho inclination to
meet his brethren nguiu. Kev. II. G.
Scaifo, by request of tho conference,
oft'orod earnest words of prayer for Kov.
George A. Wright, of No wherry, "Thy
servant, called by grace, to tho ministry
of t hat grace."
Tho regular conference programme
was then begun, Revs. W. J. Langston
and .1. 1). Pitts making strong ami im
pressive remarks on tho subject assigned
Ilium: "Tho Devotional Klement in tho
I'KOFKSSIO N A I. K V A N O K ? .ISIS.
This was followed by a scathing ar
raignment of tho "so-called modern pro
fessional evangelist," tho subject being
"The Evangelist as a Factor in Church
Lifo." Kov. J, ll. 1'arrottled in tills dis
cussion, and he thought tho evangelist
was without training, litorary or other
wise, and boasting of his ignorance, unin
formed, rude ami even vulgar in tho pul
pit; stirring hysterical emotionalism
with erratic doctrines, pct theories, pecu
liar and questionable methods. Iiis con
elusion was that, though thoro werosomo
very few exceptions to this rulo, tho
1 rend of "evangelical preaching led away
from the highest and best interests of
Kev. V, C. Hickson followed, and ho
polished off what ho called "tho tempo
rary apostle" with very little reservation.
Hu contrasted tho Scriptural evangelist
with thc In Uer-day product, who, ho
said, "respected tho opinions of noone,
with ut tor disregard of all others but
himself." Ho thought tho time was
soon coming when evangelists would for
sake their prosout advertising methods
and adopt tho circus poster style.
MIN 1ST MUS' CON V K K BN0 K.
At half-past 0 o'clock this morning thc
ministers' conference again convened.
Kev. Messrs. L. M. and M. B, Foreman
opened a discussion on "Forogloams of a
Great KeligiouB Kovival." Thou "Tho
Sway of New Testament Principles over
the Prosont Trend of Religious Thought"
received scholarly attention from Kov.
C. S. Gardtior, 1). 1)., who was followed
by Kev. J. C. Browno and several others.
Kov. Messrs. \V. S. Dorset and J, IO. Mc
Mullaway thou discussed tho next sub
jcel, "Missionary Triumphs." All of
these topics were earnestly considered,
noon "oi.n UNOLK NKI>."
Seated among hundreds of his white
brethren was a white-haired old black
man, tho Kev. Edward Starke. "Old
l ucie Ned" was presented to tho con
ference by Mr. W, li. Durst, and several
ministers tostiflod lo tho strong charac
ter and godly lifo of tho old colored mau,
who is a most remarkable character,
old Unelo Nod is from "Ole Virginity"
and is now in his Hilst year. On motion
be addressed the conference, and seldom
was purer faith evidenced by moro im
pressive speech, His voice was Hrh) and
clear, his words wore well chosen and
natural, even though he "got education,
but can't road do print. Intelligent od ii
cation from God is ile best education any
man can git, and dat what I got. De
wus ting I got to light is ole Undo Ned,
and I always filin' Ililli." Undo Ned's
presence and remarks were very touch
ing and, on motion a collection, amount
ing lit s:;o, was presented to the faithful
old traveller overa long road of many
and strange vicissitudes. His review of
bis life was most pathetic, and his tribute
to bis mother, simple and beautiful,
could not well have been improved upon.
The tirst Baptist Stato Convention of
South Carolina met at, Columbia in 1821,
willi Kev. Pichan! Kerman, D. D., as
president. This couvoiition was com
posed of only three associations-Char
leston, Savannah and Kdgelleld, and very
few members were present. Xow tho
convention is composed of thirty-five
flourishing associations, as is evidenced
by tho fact that there aro, approximately
speaking, now 100,00(1 members of this
''.'nomination in South Carolina. Tho
lest baptist church in the South is thc;
.rsi. Baptist church of Charleston,
which was established in 1<?S?. Tho
('ballest?n Association is tho oldest. Bap
tist district association in tho South,
ami tbis association was originally com
posed of the associations of the First
baptist church, of Charleston, tho Ash
ley K?YO?' (long defunct), and tho strong
old Welsh Neck, (if Darlington county.
ll is also a fact that t be lirst. agit?t ?on
for denominational colleges ami educa
tional institutions among the Baptists
originated in South Carolina in tho year
1820. Throe failures marked these first
attempts, which wore successful in other
states before they were in the State
when* this Importan! movement origi
nated. Tho lirst attempt to establish
such au institution saw its rise and fall
at Kdgcdnld in 182(1. ami this was soon
followed by two failures in tho "High
11 ills of Sanlei!." In m> wiso daunted,
the noble work went on, and now flour
ishing old Kill'mail, with increasing vigor
and honored years, outers her somi-ocn

testimony to this early Inspiration and
hitor years of faithful labors. The lirst.

church workers, was organized at old

L. M. Irby died at bis homo in this city
a few minuten before 8 o'olook till?
morning, after an acute illness of tbroo
wooka (bright's disease). lils friends
being apprehensive from tho first, he
was awaro of his situation, and met
death with groat fortitude.
Senator Irby was tho sou of Jamos II.
Irby, a distinguished lawyer of this
State. Ho was of Whig ancestry, two of
his groat uncles having boon massacred
as youths at Hay's Station by Bill Cun
ningham and a party of Torios during
tho Revolution. His fathor was* Lieu

While never a student Col. Irby was
distinguished for quick noss of apprehen
