Fraz..-Mr. John A. Weldon's gin
house and sixteen bales of cotton
were destroyed by fire Wednesday
night.: Mit Weldon had left the gin
house only about one hour previous
to tho'discovery of the fire. He says
he examined it thoroughly, as he
generally does, and found everything
right. In connection with the gin
was a mill, both run by water, and
had been built only a short time.
Mr. Weldon's loss will reach $2,000.
Whether the fire was the work of an
incendiary or was accidental, we are
unable to say.
"Agricultural Chemistry" as a

of chemistry of which the agricul
turist may advantageously avail him.

speak of "Chemical Tannery" or

that Mr. Samuel Murphy, had re

seven negroes who were shot down
in the riot. Mr. Murphy has ad

that he did state that he witnessed a

Williams, of the Winnsborg Npwm,
is following tlhe footsteps of Buchan
an, of the Chester .Reporter, who is
struggling for the laurels won by
rhymes. He had a "rassel" with the
Muses day before yesterday, and the
following inspired lines testify that
he flung her. Enumerating the at
tractions of the Centennial Uity, lie
says she has
"Railroads and busses and backs,
Corn whiskey that don't pay the tax,
And Joseph Caldwell,
Who's a bully young swell,
11 ith a keen eye,you bet, forpinbacka."
When Williams is told. that we
have recently been kicked, and that
we have "jined mit der temperance,"
lie will see how mal apropos it is to
connect our name with "busses" and
'pin backs,' and with corn whiskey.
Such references as these cause us to
recall our happier days and to
realize the more fully our present
miserable condition. Let's talk
about something else.
THE LsoTUn.-Quite a good audi
once assembled at the Thespian Hall
on Thursday night to hear the lee
tare delivered by Major S. P. Ham
ilton, in aid of the Monumental As.
sociation. The speaker commenced
by stating the object of the lecture,
and eulogized the women, and al
luded to the present status of the
enterprise as a pride to the ladies
and a shame to the men. He then
dwelt upon the late war and narrated
soveral anecdotes, amusing and
pathetic- We will not give a further
synopsis of the lecture which was
attentively listened to and frequent
ly applauded. The proceeds of the
lecture were betwveen forty and fifty
dollars. Major Hamilton went to
Ridgeway Friday to deliver his lec
ture before the Rlidgeway Libraiy
Association at their invitation. He
proposes making a tour of the State;
and we bespeak both for himself and
the noble cause he advocates, the
attention of the public.
Major S. P. Hamilton delivered
his lecture in behalf of the Monu
mental Association before the Ridge
wvay Library Association on Friday
night. Although a notice of only a
fewv hors was givefi, our wide
awake sister city collected a good
atdience. The lecturer was intro
duced by Col. H. C. Davis, president
of the association. The lecturer
was frequeiitly applaiidad; and was
also the recipielit of several bou
quets. After thu ldcture wvas con
cluded, Captz W. R. Marshall zhoved
the thanks of the association for the
lecture in a very haindsomo address;
which was eloquently respohded to
by Major Hamilton. About twenty
dollars was realized; but the amoumt
would have been greater had due
notice been extended. Major Ham
ilton was the guest of R. S Des.
portes, Esq. He wvas qiuite pleased
with his visit to Ridgeway. .Ridge'i
way is a push ahead place, full of
vim and pluck.
EcidTIzERN CULTiVATo.-This old
and reliable friend of the farmer
pursues the even tenor of its way,
striving earnestly and honestly to
assist him during these hard and
trying times. It advocates progress
only when it pays. There is noth
ing of the fancy or sensational about
it. Solid, practical, suggestive, it is
just what real working farmers need.
The very large number of inquiries
presented by thein' each month, to
