he will receive on Wednesday next
twenty-one head of fine Horses and

No Court.?As there was some
question as to the legality of the juries
drawn to serve at the January term of
Court, Judge Wallace decided that
there should be no Court held at this
time, but that he would hold an extra
term of Court the latter part of this
.month. Parties interested in this mat
ter had better consult our advertising
columns where they will find a notice
calling the extra court._
An invention is now being perfested
by which reilroad trains can take on
and let off passengers without making
any stop. A passenger wishing to stop
at the next station has only to walk
into the rear car, while passengers wish

into a car before the train arrives,
which car, by an automatic arrange

of the moving train._
Gone to Lake City.?Mr. L. W.
Hydrick, who has been merchandizing
in our town for tne past year, has re

S. C, where he will still continue in the
mercantile business. Mr. Hydrick has
many warm friends here who regretted
to see him leave and we feel that we
cannot wish him too much success in
his new home. He is an accession that
Lake City may be proud of.
House Burned.?Last Thursday
the house of Mrs. Delily Williams, of
Goodland Township, was burned to the
ground, together with all of its con
tents. Mrs. Williams, who is in needy
circumstances, lost everything, not sav

the charity of those who are blessed
with an abundance of this world's
goods. The fire was accidental.
The News and Courier speaking of

Assigned?Mr. C. P. Branson, one
of our most enterprising grocerymeu,
made an assignment last Friday for the
benefit of his creditors. Mr. Branson
?was doing a good business, but he let
the go?dness of his heart get the better
of him, which caused him to credit too
indiscriminately. Ho has the sympathy
of a host of friends in his reverse, who
hope that he may be enabled to reestab
lish himself in business at an early day.
Mr. C. D. Kortjohn is the assignee.
Tue Cold Wave.?The cold wave
struck this locality last Friday and has
been with us ever since. Wo* have in
terviewed several old gentlemen from
different parts of the county and they
all agree that the weather for the past
few days has been the coldest they ever
experienced. For several days the ice
eid not melt on our streets," notwith
standing the sun was clear and bright.
.Those people who have had so much to
say about the mild winter can now

How it Is.?And now is the time
that the commercial fertilizer business
begins. The cotton seed oil mills will
now sell to the farmer a ton of cotton
seed meal for double the price the far
mer received for his cotton seed. The
mill man has already reaped an im
mense profit from the oil extracted
from the seed, and he further wants
double pay for the refuse, which the
farmer in many cases is foolish en
ough to pay. Poverty awaits close by
for such individuals, and is very apt to
catch them before many years pas3.
Important to Taxpayers.?Tax
payers should bear in mind that in the
assessment now being made by the
County Auditor, property of every de
scription, real and personal; will be
assessed. They should make out their
lists of property, with true valuation
attached, before going to the assess
ment. In so doing lands should be
classed as follows: First, arable or
cleared land; second, woodland; third,
unprofitable swamps. The names oi
owners of surrounding contiguous
lands should also be given. As the
assessment will necessarily be more
tedious than ordinarily, so the course
above ihdicated will greatly expedite
t he work of the assessor. Remember that
all males between the ages, of 21 and 60
years are subject to poll tax.

A RAILROAD JUBILEE.'
The Opening; of tho Eutairvillo Road Cel
ebratcd at HoUy Hill.
The News and Courier of last Friday
contained a long account of the cele
bration at Holly Hill in honor of the
completion of the Eutawville Railroad
to that point. The account of the af
fair as we find it in the News and Cou
rier is as follows:
The excursion to Holly Hill from
Charleston which was given yesterday
by Mr. R. C. Barkley, the president of
the Eutawville Railroad, was one of the
most enjoyable affairs that has taken
place this season. The motive of the
excursion was the completion of the
Eutawville Road to Holly Hill, its
present terminus, to which point, the
rails had been laid a day or two ago.
In view of the fact that the people in
the vicinity of Holly Hill and through
out the section along the line of the
new road have exhibited much enthu
siasm over the progress of this pioneer
line, Mr. Barkley had determined to
get up a celebration at Holly Hill which
would be an event in railroad history.
He therefore made all the arrangements
early in the week and issued a number
of invitations to the friends of the
road to meet the people of the Holly
Hill section at that place yesterday
A party of about thirty gentlemen,
among whom were Col. S. B. Bickens,
Mr. EugeDe P. Jervej, Col. J. W. Perry,
Alderman E. H. Gaosden, Mr. Bernard
Boyd and others, left the city in a spe
cial passenger coach attached to the
outgoing Augusta train. At Forty
One, the junction of the South Carolina
and Eutawville Railways; an engine
awaited the coming of the excursion
ists, who were transferred to the latter
road and after a pleasant trip through
a rich and fertile country arrived at
10.30 A. M., at Holly Hill. A com
modious depot has already been erected
at this place and bears evidence of the
advantage which the people of the sur
rounding country are taking of their
railroad facilities. The freight plat
form was covered with cotton bales,
rosin barrels, turpentine casks and oth
er produce awaiting shipment to Char-*
At the time of the arrival of the
special car at the terminus the people
had begun to come into town. The
delegation from Charleston was accord
ed a characteristic welcome by the good
people of Berkeley. Later on in the
day the crowd had increased to a very
large number, which has been estimated
at about one thousand. The ladies
turned out to grace the occasion, and
each one came provided with the "bas
ket" on which so much of the perfect
enjoyment of the occasion depended.
The day was spent afcer the most ap
proved fashion, and at 1 o'clock a sec
ond excursion was gotten up for the
benefit of those of the crowd present
who desired to make a trip over the
road to Forty-One. On the return of
these excursionists to Holly Hill there
was the usual picnic dinner, to which
full justice was done by the mass meet
ing, which it was to all intents and
After dinner the crowd was organ
ized as in committee of the whole, and
Capt. C. 3t. G. Sinkler was called to the
chair. He addressed the meeting at
some length, dwelling with much force
on the advantages that would accrue to
the people of this section of the county
from the completion of the road. He
complimented in eloquent language
the spirit which had prompted the en
terprise, and on behalf of the citizens
of the place and the county, for whom
he felt sure he could speak on so im
portant an occasion, he extended to the
officers of the new road and the visitors
from Charleston a most cordial and
These words of greeting brought out
President Barkley, who acknowledged
the chairman's welcome in appropriate
terms. He could not, he said, but feel
encouraged by so signal a recognition
by the people of the county in general
of their new transportation facilities.
He felt indeed proud that he was in
any degree instrumental In offering to
such a splendid agricultural district
the means of developing their resources
and of bringing them into direct and
easy communication with the best
markets of tho State. Thus far the
prospects of the road were bright, and
there was perhaps nothing that would
more certainly assure its future success
than the kindly manner in which the
enterprise from the very outset had
been endorsed by those who were most
closely connected with the . ad vantages
it would necessarily bring. Ho could
not, he said in conclusion, appropriate
exclusively to himself the compliment
ary language of the chairman, and
thanked him. in the name of all those
connected with the undertaking for his
generous and eloquent reception.
At the close of President Barkley'?
remarks loud calls were made for
Col. S. B. Pickens, who was forced to
take the stand and say something on
"this most auspicious occasion." lie
responded in a short and appropriate
address, which was handsomely re
After the speech of Col. Pickens Mr.
Eugene P. Jervey,' representing the
railroad commission, Yvho'mspeeted the
new road yesterday, was called upon
and delivered an address appropriate
to the occasion. . V :
Col. Jennings W. Perry, the next
speaker, responded to a call and mado a
brief and happy speech. On closing
his remarks he offered a series of reso
lutions ;.n commendation of the energy
and perseverance of Mr. Barkley in
pursuing the enterprise to- so success
ful a degree, and for opening up so rich
and fertile a section of the country.
The resolutions also returned the
thanks of the officers of the new road
to the South Carolina Railway Com
pany for its assistance in the work and
for the courtesies of that company to
the visitors on this occasion.
This speech and the resolutions con
cluded the literary programme of the
day. Tho party left Holly Hill at 4.50
o'clock, reaching Forty-One at 5.20 P.
M. From that place the run was made
to Charleston, a distance of forty-one
miles, in fifty minutes by engine No.

Forty-One to Charleston was Mr. An

On Saturday night last Mr. Greenleaf,
accompanied by his wife, was return
ing from Clayton. It was about nine
o'clock, and, as is the custom they both
walked up one of the hills, while
the mules and wagon ascended, their
little boy being the driver. Suddenly
a rustle was herd in the bushes, and
peering out in the bushes, could be
seen what looked like two balls of fire.
As if by instinct, Greenleaf opened his
knife, and as the beast sprang at him
he made a lunge, only to drive the
knife into his wife's arm, she having
thrown herself upon him at the sight
of danger. He dropped the knife nerve
less, and fell under the. spring of the
panther, the beast being now madden
ed by the smell of blood. Just as the
animal was about to insert its teeth
into Mr. Greenleaf, the wife who had
picked up the knife and, acting under
the inspiration of desperation, took a
clean cut at the beast's throat. The
panther gave one painful cry and rolled
over. The cry alarmed the hunters at
Bleeley's house, near by, and almost in
stantly a number of them were on the
spot, only to find that a woman had
accomplished what they had been six
weeks trying to do. They helped to
lift the dead animal into Greenleafs
wagon, who carried it home, where he
skinned it The hide he intends to
use as a coverlet for his babies, in
order, he says, to impart to them their

United States senatorships in Indiana

A Boy's Timely Bravery.
A desperate attempt to burn down
the town of Tarentum, Pa., was made
on Monday morning. The viUians had
taken every precaution to make the
destruction sure. They had cut the
ropes of the two alarm bells, broken
the principal pumps in the village, and
carried off the fire buckets ar.d tubs.
The cries of fire aroused a lad named
Williern Dibbell, an employee of a
large planing mill, upon which was a
bell, ne ran to the mill, and upon
finding the bell rope cut, climbed to
the roof and sounded the alarm by
striking' the bell with the hammer.
This awakened the entire community,
who turned out en masse and soon ex
tinguished the dames. About two
weeks ago there was an attempt made
to burn the village.
