Easter Picnic?The Annual Easter
Picnic at Haydeu's Mill will be held
this year on the 24th instant, and we
hope "our friends who celebrate the
occasion may have a pleasant day and
lots of fun. If nothing happens we
will try and be there.
Thanks.?In mentioning our paper
Bro. Kirkland. editor of the Christian
Advocate, pays it this compliment:
"Bro. Sims has the honor of publishing
? - the only cut and pasted eight-page
. country paper in the State. His paper
not only has size, it also has decided
merit. Orangeburg county deserves a
first-class paper, and it has it."
M. L. Kinard.?In another column
will be found a message from this
Sopular and leading clothing house of
olumbia?M. L. Kinard. No one who
has patronized his house has ever re
gretted it, and they always went back
again when they wanted good cloth
ing at low prices. He is offering bet
ter bargains now than ever before.
Sale of Lots at Elloeee.?As
wiU be seen by the advertisement in
another column, a public sale of lots
will take place at Elloree next Satur
day. As this point is to be the termi
nus of the Eutawville Railroad it bids
fair at no distant day to be a place of
some note, and those who may buy
these lets no doubt will make a good
The Prodigal Son.?The Rev. T.
AL Galphin preached the first of a sen es
of three sermons on the above subject
4ast Sunday evening at the Baptist
Church. The othef two will be preach
ed Sunday night week and the follow
ing Sunday night. These sermons are
Ulustrated, and, as presented by Mr. Gal

Removal.?Mr. P. W. Cantwell has
removed from his old stand to the store
lately occupied by Mr. C. P. Brunson,
where he will be pleased to see his
friends and customers. Mr. Cantwell
h?? met with marked success since he
began business here a few months ago
and in consequence he was compelled
to enlarge his quarters. As Mr..Cant

and uses it, we are not surprised at his
Our Story.?"We print this week
the opening chapters of our new . serial
story, "Slings and Arrows," which will
be found to be very interesting. This
story will run through about six num
bers of the paper, and will be followed
by another of equal merit. We intend
to make this a feauture of TriE Times
and Democrat, and we feel assured
that our patrons will appreciate and
sustain our effort to give them a first
class county paper.
An Old Veteran Gone.?Mr. D. P.
Jamison, an old resident of the Pork,
died last Monday in the 80th year of
his age. He was a straightfoward, up
right man, and died respected by all
who knew him. Mr. Jamison served
as a member of the Irish Volunteers of
Charleston in the Florida war and was
one of the few old veterans of that
gaUant corps living. Ho also served
with gallantry in our late war, and was
in every way a true man and patriot.
Religious Services.?There will be
preaching at the Presbyterian Church
to-night, also on Friday and Saturday
nights. A Sunday School Mass Meet
ing wiU be held Sunday afternoon at
half-past four o'clock to which all the
children of the various white Sunday
Schools in town are expected. Union
services Sunday night. All these ser
vices will be held at the Presbyterian
Church, and the public are cordially
invited to attend. The services at
night will begin at 8 o'clock.
The Difference.?The Barnwell
Sentinel, of last week, says: "Again we
extend our thanks to two" of Barnwell's
most lovely ladies, for brightening the
Sentinel "office with their presence.
There is nothing that rests a weary
typo so much as ? pleasant chat with
the ladies." We do not agree with
Brother Brunson. We always feel
more refreshed when we are called from
our labors to write a receipt for an old
chronic delinquent subscriber than any
thing else we can think of. That is the
difference between us.
Charleston Presbytery met at
the Presbyterian Church last night at
8 o'clock. Rev. Edwin Muller, Modera

pulpits to be filled on Sabbath morning
by them. Rev. Doctors Vedder, Girar

Vardell, Mickle, Dow and several
Elders will attend. The Sabbath ser
vices, morning and night, will be speci
ally interesting. The children will en

Warning to Sportsmen.?Accord
ing to the amendment passed at the
last session of the legislature game
birds may be killed between November
1st and April 1st. So the time is up.
The following is the amendment re
ferred to: "It shall not be lawful for any
persons in this State, between the 1st
day of April and the 1st day of Novem

Work for Your Town.?An ex
change says business that should be
patronized will at times recognize the
fact that a line regard for the interest
of others must be paid to reach success.
Business that is worth anything and
worth patronizing will always be found
a paying one, a liberal one and one cal
culated to be of benefit and pleasure to
the community. The man who sits
back and fears to invest a dollar, en
courges no enterprise, frowns upon all
new and advancing projects and holds
a dollar as if death was the result of
investing it, will never do much. His
life will not be a success; his small
earnings will not be a pleasure to him,
neither will he ever be a pleasure to
any one in the community, for he
always appears verging upon death.

Another Wonder.?The Abbeville
Messenger says: "We have had an op
portunity lately to see an exhibition of
the power possessed by Mrs. G. Henry
Moore, resembling that of Lula Hurst.
Mrs. Moore performs all the tests given
by Lufci Hurst and others that the lat
ter never tried. For instance, by sim
ply laying hands upon the top of a table
she could make it move so that three
strong men could not hold it still, the
table neing brokon in the effort to hold
it. This is only one of the test she
gave. We are well satisfied that it is
not muscular" strength. In the first
place Mrs. Moore has no object in de
ceiving the public, and if she had is too
true a woman to do so. In the second
place we are satisfied from the actual
trial and experience of the force." If
the lady will come to Orangeburg some
of our experts will soon lind out the
cause of her power. Lula Hurst was
here only a short time before they
knew all about her mysterious force,
so they said._

GO UP HEAD !
Some Tall South Carolina Yarns Spun by
the Detroit Free Tress.
"Well, boys," said ? a veteran to a
crowd collected around the stove in a
hotel in Wheeling, W. Va, "you fellows
have been telling some big tales here
to-night, but you just ought to go
down to South Carolina and hear them
spin 'em; why, they take all the breath
from a man. Just after Sherman went
through they used to tell big war tales
about burnings, and skirmishing, and
so on, but they've quit that now, and
all the lies are very' peaceable ones.
When I was down there two years ago,
one night I was at Florence, and the
fellows were all waiting for the Colum
bia express, and the way they did spin
the yarns to kill time was a caution."
"Uncle Bill," said one of the group,
"if you don't mind, tell us one of those
"Well," said the old man, who in
fact loved to draw 'the long bow, "I
don't care if I do. In the first place
you must know that down there the
people ain't particular about the dol
lars as they are up here; a Charleston
man would rather work for fifty cents
a day, and have his joke, than get a
dollar in a dry way. As I was going
on to say, we were at Florence, and
there was one in that crowd that could
outlie all the rest of us put together.
He was telling about Kershaw County
cows; they were so big that one of them
supplied a whole township. They
milked with a steam milker, and ran it
iff a big stone tank, and then every
man in the neighborhood could con
nect his house with it, just like your
house is with the waterworks. Folks
down-there don't drink much whisky?
they drink milk and water more than
one-third of the time. But that story
was nothing to the story of the Sump
ter snakes. Down about Salterstown
they killed one, and he was so big that
the niggers cut him up in rings just
like they would a watermelon, cleaned
out the hide, sat it up on end, built a
roof over it, and they had a house so
close that cold couldn't get in.
"And talking about cold, that re
minds me; they have pretty cold
weather down there sometimes. "About
six years ago a blizzard came along
one night and blew all the fire out of a
farm-house chimney; the old man
waited until the wind went down, and
he built it up again with lightwood
knots. After a while the wind came
roaring along again, and went rushing
down the chimney. The wind went
down and the fire went up, and they
had a tussle; ?and they tusseled and
tussled, when all of a sudden there
came a big lump of fire down on the
hearth, frozen like a rock. The farmer
picked it up, and put it on the shelf,
and thawed it out the next morning
to build another fire with. The fellow
said an Edgefield editor was respon
sible for this lie.
"The cold down there doesn't keep
potatoes from growing.though. They've
a breed of potato in South Carolina
that grows so big that they don't plant
but one sprout; that makes one potato,
which is large enough to last a family
all winter. They never dig 'em; just
scrape the dirt off the top, cut off as
much as they want, and cover it up
again. They never can bring those
sort of potatoes to West Virginia. The
reason is they grow so big and so fast
that they burst" the railroad cars open
and fall out on the track and obstruct
passage for hours'. Mules are worn
out things to lie about, but I don't
care, they have kicking mules down
there, too; and one thing funny about
South Carolina mules is, they never
die; only one was ever known to die in
that whole country, and a butcher at
Camden killed him and sold him for
beef. A Colonel bought a shank, and
made some soup out of it, but the first
mouthful he took?the soup, mind yon,
not the shank?projected him out of a
two-story window, and he did not come
to himself in three clays.
"There is a grocer at Mayesvillc, who
bought a lot of hams?got"'em cheap?
and they were actually so strong that
one night they got up, unbarred the
door, went to the depot,-and captured
the mail train and rode to Tiimnons
ville without paying any fare. Some
folks said they had skippers in 'cm; hut
they didn't, although they did skip
around right lively.
"The trains down there run pretty
fast, too. Just to give you an gexample.
One morning the Atlantic Coast Line
train was crossing the Watcree River
trestle when she struck a broken rail
and jumped the track. It happened
that the telegraph wires were on the
same side to which it jumped, and they
were just about the same gauge as the
track; anyhow the whole train landed
right on 'em, as plumb as a die. The
engineer saw that his only salvation
was to pull wide open, so he pulled,
and away they Hew at the rate of 130
miles an hoar. By the time one tele
graph pole broke they were away
across the next one, so they never did
hit the ground, but kept right on, and
busted in the telegraph office window
at Columbia; the operator said it was
the stunningest dispatch?" but the
voice of the porter interrupted the old
man?"lights out," und the boys crawl
ed off to bed, awed by that frightful
example and inwardly swearing never
to tell another lie.

A Former'? View?.
Editor Tiiws a nil Democrat:
You solicit the fanners in every sec
tion to contribute to your columns,
promising if we will give you facts and
ideas you will see that they will be put
in ship shape. "With this promise on
your part I will attempt to write a few
letters. I am ;it a loss to know what to
write about to please, edify and com
fort the farmers of Orangeburg Coun
ty, for I assue you, they are in a bad
lix, Mr. Editor." I know what I am
talking about," I speak from personal
experience. Critic, several years ago,
predicted that if the farmers continued
to cultivate cotton to the exclusion
of other crops they would make them
selves hewers of wood and drawers of
water. In this predicament what
must we do? Accept the situation.
Put on a "stiff upperlip." Make your
wants few, practice economy. I will
give you an incident which happened
in one of our upper counties: A
wealthy gentleman was divested of his
negroes and horses by Gen. Sherman.
He and his sons hitched up an oxen to
haul some wood, was met by an old
friend, in the act of training his cow
to work. The old gentleman remark
ed, I had no idea that there is so much
fun in being poor. You don't know
how much fun I and the boys have
with this oxen. It is better to take
our troubles light than to grieve over
them. In our depressed condition we
are looking to our law-makers to do
something for us. A good many far
mers are hopeful that Mr. Tillmah will
be the Moses to lead us out of the
wilderness. I am fearful if we follow
his plans he will lead us into greater
troubles. He suggests that we have a
farmers' convention and since there is
a likelihood of one being held, I think
Orangeburg should send delegates to
help check Mr. Tillman in his mad
career. I don't endorse Mr. Tillman,
but there are somethings that he re
commends I heartily agree with. The
heighth of his ambition is to establish
an agricultural college, which I con
sider a useless and expensive luxury
to the State. Other States have tried
this experiment and have signally fail
ed for the want of patronage, and I
think every farmer and Tillman should
see from the very slim attendance at
the agricultural department in odr
State college, an agricultural college
would be a failure. I think we should
correct the abuses of our State college
before we establish any more.

Editor Times and Democrat:
Why is it that the farmers of our
county are so slow to take some action
in regard to the "farmer's movement?"
If there is any good in it, I think we
need it as bad as other counties. There
can certainly be no harm in our send
ing substantial men of good judgement
to meet the convention on April 29th.
A meeting of such men from every
part of the" county, and a discussion of
the situation, can only redound to the
good of the county. All farmers are,
or should be, in sympathy with any
movement that will have a tendency
to revive and encourage our agricul

will be his headquarters for the next <
few months. Mr. Turner, during his
stay in our midst, has demeaned him
self a perfect gentleman, always meet- i
ing his obligations promptly, and re
quiring those in his service to do like
wise on pain of being instantly dis- 1

people of Fayetteville, hoping that he
may return "to dwell with us again
