A Pleasant Time? The members
of the Lexington delegation, after the
adjournment of the railroad meeting,
were dined and otherwise refreshed at
the Orangeburg Hotel by the Orange
burg members, through their com
mittee of arrangements. Much good
cheer prevailed, a number of speeches
were made, and the meeting in the
interest of the new railroad was un
questionably a splended success.
A Good Opening.?The Macon Tele
graph says that when a base ball club
learns that it can't play ball, the next
best thing to do is to hire a farm and

aseballists can run an eight mule
farm and raise one hundred and twenty
bales of cotton. ' There's money in the
suggestion, and it would be well for
the Charleston professionals to think
it over. It is a good opening for them.
Spring and Summer.?Mr. Henry

several others were found in different
parts of the town, and the supposition
is that they were on their way north
and was overtaken by the storm that
passed over our town Tuesday night
and were disabled.

Fire?Col. A. D. Frederick, who re
sides about three miles south of this
town, lost his dwelling, furniture and
much other valuable property by fire
last Thursday. His loss is estimated
?at between $4,000 and $4,500. The
origin of the fire is unknown, and when
?discovered the flames were making
rapid headway in the ceiling of the
second story. The property was insur
ed, through the agency of Mr. Kirk
Robinson, in the Liverpool and London

$2,500, which will only partially cover
the loss. Col. Frederick has a host of
friends, who sympathize with him in

Secret of Large Round Cabbage.
James II. Gregory, the well known
Massachusetts herbsman, lets his pat
rons into the secret of growing good
large, round heads of cabbage even
time. He builds his practice on the
theory that the cabbage absorbs its
nourishment through its stump, hence
the manure should be put, where the
roots and stumps can get at it. Mr.
Gregory put his plants three feet apart
when he wants a good drumhead, culti
vates them three times at least, and
gives plenty of good manure, lie ad
vocate* plowing in a furrow and filling
it up with manure. Plow it well under,
but do not scatter it over the land. Put
it where the roots of the plant arc go
ing in lie. To prevent cabbage heads
from bursting. Mr. Gregory advises go
ing over the ground often "and starting
every-cabbage that appears to be about
to mature, by pushing it over sideways.
Heads thus started, he elaims, will at
tain twice the size they were when
about to burst.
ORANGEBURG'S NEW ROAD.
A Meeting of the Corporators?Pinns to
Kaise the Necessary Money.
An enthusiastic meeting1 of the cor
porators of the Orangeburg and Lewie
dale Railroad was held in the Court
House at this place on hist Tuesday.
Dr. A. S. Hydrick, was elected chair
man and Capt. D. J. Griffith, of Lewie
dale, was elected Secretary.
The estimate of the cost of the road,
based on a preliminary survey made by
Mr. A. de Caradeuc, civil engineer of
the South Carolina Railway, made a
short time ago, was submitted. This
estimate places the cost of building and
equipping the road from Orangeburg
to Lewisdale at 8200,000, the distance
being fifty-one miles. The question of
the best method for raising the neces
sary amount of money to build and
equip the road was discussed at length.
The charter of this road was granted
at the hist session of the Legislature
and does not provide for the township
subscription plan. The charter pro
vides that S25,000 of the capital stock
must be subscribed before a permanent
organization can be effected. On mo
tion, a committee was appointed to pre
pare an amendment to the present char
ter, so as to submit the questien wheth
er or not the necessary money shall be
raised by township subscription to a
vote of the citizens of the townships,
both of this and Lexington counties,
through which the proposed road will
pass?this amendment to be presented
to the next Legislature.
The plan proposed for building the
road, and which unquestionably meeic
with most general favor, is to raise tho
?25,000 necessary to begin operation by
private subscription; then to raise say
8100,000. by township^ubscription, and
when this is done to bond the road for
the amount necessrry to complete it.
The citizens along the proposed route
are said to be anxious, and even enthu
siastic over tbe enterprise, and will
readily vote the necessary subscription
in the various townships. A tax of from
1% to 2 mills on the value of the taxa
ble property of the townshix? interest
ed will be sufficient to create a sinking
fund which will pay the interest and
retire the bonds inside of twenty years.
This seems to be the most plausible
scheme, and tbe one that will fall most
lightly on our citizens.
After reading the act of incorpora
tion xhe names of corporators was call
ed by the Secretary as follows:

Lexington, 8. C, boa3ts of a farmer
who has not yet sold a bale of his last
crop of cotton, and who has also some
of the preceeding year's crop on hand,
and who has never bought provisions
of any kind since he has been farming,
except a little fodder one year. He
buys but small quantities of fertilizers
and feeds high.
The inconsistency of things agricul
turally is illustrated in the fact i 1
by the Memphis Ledger that "v .
middling cotton at 8% cents a pound, a
steamer last week "delivered 10,000
sacks of Missouri corn and 2,900 boxes
3f Chicago meat at Monroe, La., right
in the finest corn growing region on
earth." Do you see the point.
One of our farming friends who
knows, says if you want to raise fine
watermelons plant them and cotton
together. He says the bugs and worms,
Dften destructive to the watermelon
irines, will feed on the cotton instead of
the vines. The cotton may not be so
?ood, but the watermelons will be ail
right. This plan is worth a trial.
Corn planting has been the labor of

HOW PURIM WAS CELEBRATED.
A Fancy Masked Ball?The Merry Mask
ers?A Fairy Spectacle.
Orangebtjrg, March 23.?The annu
al Puriin balls at Orangeburg have
always figured as shining lights in the
social firmament of this attractive lit
tle city, and the fourth annual ball,
which was given by the Hebrew Be
nevolent Society last night, was with
out exception the most brilliant and
successful affair of the kind that has
ever been held here. The weather was
clear and bracing, seeming to be in
perfect harmony with the exuberant
spirits and joyful anticipations of the
masqueraders. The attendance was of
course large and fashionable, being
made up not only of the youth and
beauty of Orangeburg, but also of nu
merous fair representatives from Co
lumbia, Augusta, BlackvUle, Fort
Motte, Camden and St. Matthews's.
The ball was given for the benefit of
the Hebrew Benevolent Society of
Orangeburg, a society which has been
organized only about three months, but
which is already on the high road to
success and prosperity. The result of
the entertainment, both financially and
otherwise, is. highly satisfactory, and
its great success may be attributed
almost entirely to the untiring efforts
of the ladies and gentlemen who are
interested in the society, and especiaUy
the energy displayed by the managing
committees, consisting of Messrs. T.
Kohn, Sol. Link, D. Epstin, M. Rich, H.
Kohn, J. I. Sorenteue, Victor "Wald and
The festivities were held in the hand
some armory of the Edisto Rifles, and
were opened early in the evening by a
grand carnival march, which, together
with the four following dances, were
devoted exclusively to the merry mask
ers. These were out in unusually large
force and in every style and manner of
costume. The hall was fairly thronged
with the large but incongruous assem
blage. Courtiers and goddessess, fairies
and boot-blacks, peasant girls and
jockies, dudes and shepherdesses, all
mingled indiscriminately together and
shared alike the pleasures of the hour.
The hall was brilliantly illuminated
and adorned with flowers. Suspended
over the stage, which was occupied by
the musicians, was an illuminated
transparency bearing the word "Fu
rim" in Hebrew characters. The music
was furnished oy Meitzler's band from
Charleston, and when in response to
the "magic numbers and persuasive
sound" the glazed floor was occupied by
the graceful dancers and swaying
coupies, the scene was one of rare beau
ty and fascination. Shortly after the
unmasking a brief intermission was
announced for supper, which was ele
gantly served on the lower floor of the
armory. This short respite was soon
followed, however, with a renewal of
the dancing, and such-was the enjoy
ment of the pleasures of the "heel and
toe" that the speeding hours were un
heeded in their flight untiU they were
well nigh ready to usher in the dawn
of a new day.

which are of general application, and

We have been at some pains to in
quire into the general duties and pow
ers of a grand jury, and give them here
for the benefit of the general public,
and perhaps in may be for the enlight
enment of the grand jurors themselves.
The powers and duties of a grand
jury arise from the common law, and
are many and varied.
It is the jury of grand inquest into
the affairs of the country, it is their
special duty to inquire into all infrac
tions of the law, and take steps to have
It is the duty of each individual
grand juror to take cognizance of
every violation of law that comes to his
knowledge; and it is equally his duty to
inquire into all such matters that he
may hear ef, and report the same to the
grand jury when it meets. The fore
man calls a meeting of the grand jury
at any time to consider and act upon
matters pertaining to the welfare of the
Any citizen may do this reporting to
the grand jury, but it is the special duty
of the members of the grand jury to do
so, as sworn officers of the law.
The grand jurors, being the grand
inquisitors and conservators of law and
order in the county, it is their sworn
duty to look out for, inquire into and
investigate all violations of law in the
county; and present by indictment, all
offenders, to the Court for trial.
This is their special duty, more than
of any other official of the county.
The grand jury has the power to
compel the attendance of witnesses be
fore them, and having made out aprima
facie case, it can present such offenders
to the Court at once by indictment and
have them arrested forthwith and
brought to trial. The grand jury can
do this independently of the Solicitor
or any other official, and it is their
sworn duty to do so. The grand jury
is a powerful piece of legal machinery,
with a wide scope of duties and powers.
We hope to see the grand jury for 1886
inaugurate a new practice and do
something else besides meeting togeth
er at Court time and making general
presentments and then stop.

At last Spring seems to have opened
upon us, and the weather is delightful.
Corn planting is general, and in this
section the farmers seem to be up with
their preparations. I have not yet
seen the first field of Fall oats that had
more than one-fourth of a stand. Many
of the farmers have planted oats since
the freeze. They did but little till
within the last ten day, but they are
now looking like they might make,
and with a favorable season will where
they have been manured. Notwith
standing the low price of the fleecy
staple, we are going it again for too
much cotton. The farming interest in
this section is in better condition than
it has been for many years.

will be his headquarters for the next

may return "to dwell with us again
