SAD OASE OF DUO WXIXG?
We were informed on Wednesday
last of the melancholy end an old
colored man came to on the 20th of
last month, in Cooper swamp. It
seems that the old man--whose-name
wc did not learn?had been informed
that he was to be sent to the poor
house, and not having a penchant for
tlial institution, slat ted in the night
away from home, hoping to find a hos
pitable roof somewhere, under which,
he might rest his aged limbs, and
where visions of the poor house and
its public charities would rot stare
him in tho face or disturb his declin
ing years. Being weak, he gave out
in his journey through the cold, biting
waters of Cooper swamp, and sank
down to strangle and to die. While
life, however, was yet in his body, ho
was found*;-placed upon a log, and re
quested to remain there until assis
tance could be procured. Mr. Geo
Smoak, upon being informed of the
old mau's situation, harnessed tip his
buggy and made all possible baste to
the spot where tho sufferer wa3. But
help came too [late. The old man
had fallen into the wator again, and
when picked up was stark and cold
in death. It seems that no inquest
has been held over his body.
The Town Council held their regu
lar nioeting on last Tuesday evening
at which were preseut all of our
venerable Oily Fathers.
Mr. 7,. M. Wolfo-a resignation as
marshal waS read ami accepted.
All 'marshals? now employed were
discharged from duly after the 15th
instant and the Clerk instructed to
receive applications for said officers,
upon which an election for marshals
will bo held.
The Committee on damages to
property by reason of opening Glover
street were requested to meet and
repoi t at next meeting.
An ordinance prohioiting Hucks
ters from cooking in or obstructing
the streets or side walks was adopted
unanimously, and the marshals in

DFSPARATE ATTEMPT AT BURG
Farly on Wednesday night as Mr.
Ben Lee aud Mr. Jimmy Hamilton
were passing the Btore of Mr. D.
Louis, they discovered that theglais
had been cut from the transom over
the back door of said building, and,
suspecting thacall was not right, halt
ed long enough to satisfy themsolvos
that someone wa9 on the inside of the
store. Other parties were at once in
formed of the situatiou, when tho front
door was opened, and a search made
for the burglar. He was found iu the
pea bin, almost covered up with peas.
After being questioned considerably,
be was taken to jail where he remain
ed until Friday afternoon, when ho
was brought beforo the Town Conn
eil for examination. At this examiua
tion ho gave his namens John Wil
Hams, and seemed to be perfectly un
concerned as to his situation. The
following is tho substance of his story,
as told by himself: Was born at
Branchvillc. Is a son of Abo Wi
llama. Used to belong to Barjh. Knows
but one or two persons down there.
Remembers one Loeb. Bought candy
from him when a boy. Boon in
OiWgeburg about eight days. Stayed
with no body. Got into Mr. Louis'
store by 4knocking the glasses out with
his hand. Went iu thcro to get money.
Suppose ho meant to steal it if you call
taking what don't bolon g to you steal
ing. Went into back room of store
first. Found firo in chimney, nnd a
match box on mantle piece. Took
tho match box because he wanted to
strike light to soo by. About this time
heard uoisc and at onto anno to conclu
sion that lie would not be allowed time
to examine the money drawer, and
otherwise inspect Mr. Louis' stock.
Would have escaped but for tho
darkness. Whenever ho would make
for a door, wou'd hit opoti a box or
eomct' ing. While thus perambulating
was, arrested and carried to jail, &ci,
The fellow has a desparnte counter
ancc, and is no doubt one of a gang in
our midst who live hy stealing. We
have a number of policemen, and it is
to be hoped that they will keep a
sharp lookout. The burglar was
committed to jail to await Iiis trial a*,
the Court of Sessions.
??r The citizens of this county arc
hereby notified that Mr. SchifHcy will
keep open bis Photogrph Gallery on
ly until February 12th. This will be
the last opportunity Ihe people of tho
county will have to get good and care
fully finished pictures of themselves
aud families. Conic then and bring
the children along ? Special care
will be taken to please every one. 4
SCARCITY OF MO KEY?
There is no doubt but the present
condition of all kinds of business and
industry is ^fearfully depressed, and
it behooves every family to look care
fully to their expenses. Winter is
coming on when children are liable
to croup, whooping cough, etc. Cough
and colds will prevail everywhere,
and consumption, with other throat
and lung diseases will carry off many.
These diseases should not bo neglect
ed, Doctors bills are expensive, and
we would advise our people to use
Boschce's Gerraa-u Syrup. It never
has failed. One bottle at 75 cents
will keep your whole family well
during the winter. Two doses will
relieve auy case. Sold in all towns in
the United States, and by your Drug
