During the past week rumors of the
appointment of Jesse Lay, C. I*. Wal
ker. J. H. Mason and C. E. Gaillard
as rural policemen for the county
have boen circulated, and at the same
time Mr. Lay, we understand, has re
reived his commission as Magistrate
for the Tamassee section. Nothing
is settled in the matter, so far as we
are able to learn.
lt has also been reported that J.
B. S. Dendy. Esq.. has been appointed
as Magist rato to succeed A. P. Crisp,
incumbent, at Walhalla; Dr. S. S.
Moroney as Magistrate at Salem, and
Jack Hopkins as Magistrate at Sen

all is uncertain; this may be the

GO TO THE CORN SHOW!
There still remain a few day? dur
ing which visitors will bo able to see
and learn at the National Corn Ex
position. Arrangements have been
made whereby tho exposition will re
main open for a week longer than
was first anticipated-in other
words, the show will be on during the
remainder of this week. Those who
have seen the show are loud in their
praises of lt. Kew from Oconee have
attended, and it ls a pity that it is
so. Tito incentivo to improve and
broaden that would have come from
a generous attendance on tito part of
Oconee farmers would have been
worth much to the county. We print
below a letter from lt. Harris, who is
certainly farmer enough to know a
good thing in the agricultural line
when ho sees it :
"Editor Keowee Courier: I see by
this morning's papers that the great
National Corn Exposition is to be
open for another week. This is done
for the hcnefll of those who have not
yel .-?cn it. Now I want to appeal to
the farmers of this State to avail
themselves of this, the greatest edu
cational show thal has ever been held
in the United States, and probably
?ve will never have another one in the
South certainly not In South Caro
lina. You cannot, afford to miss see
ing it. lt is Impossible for any one
to imagine the greatness of this show
without seeing it and studying it.
Here you can learn by observation
and get. information thal it would
take you a life-time to study out; so,
farmers, come and see it. The edu
cational feature is Invaluable lo von.
With this week will end your op
portunity to attend the exposition. Do
