One. excellent way to make busi
ness i.-; to advertise. It is more neces
sary to advertise now than it was
fifty or a hundred years ago. People
are inoi c busy now than they were
then. They have less time and leisure
to look about for what they waiit.
They xlook to the newspapers to learn
where their wants can be supplied,
and they accept it as a settled rule
that the man who advertises his com
modities which he has to dispose of,
instead of wailing for the people to
find it 6u| themselves, is the best man
to deal with, and most likely to give
satisfaction. To prove toe truth and
force of this, one has only to find the
most prosperous houses in Orangcburg

The serenity of Sunday last was
disturbed about 1 o'clock p. in. by an
alarm of fire. At first it was not known
in what direction that spiteful enemy to

that the residence of Dr. J.T. 13utier

cngnged upon, anil thither they went
in a double-quick. Bui tho Cue had
progressed too far when the Engines
reached there to bo of any material
service. The firemen and citizens of
fered every aid they could under the
circumstances. We learn that the
loss sustained is heavy to Dr. Butler's
family, leaving them for the present
without a home of their own. We
