meeting in town last Sunday, the Rev.
W. D. Kirkland, editor of the Southern
Christian Advocate. The Advocate,
under Mr. Kirkland, has taken rank
.with the best religious papers of the
land.and we predict that under his able

ligious journal in South Carolina.
Easter.?In no county in the State
is Easter so universally observed as in
Orangeburg, and for this reason we
present this week several articles on
thi3 great Christian festival. We have
gone to considerable expence to appro
priately illustrate these articles and

The New Cemetery.?The new
cemetery has been surveyed and divided
into lots by Mr. W. A. Mellichamp, and
a neat picket fence is now being erect
ed around it. The cemetery is admir

All Cash?Mr. S. R. Mellichamp,
our School Commissioner, announces
that the school claims of this county in
future will be paid as soon as due.
This announcement will be welcome
news to our poorly paid public school
teachers who heretofore have had to
dispose of their pay certificates at a
heavy discount or wait until the Fall
before having them paid by the county.
The School Commissioner deserves the
thanks of the public for the admirable

brought about this happy condition of
ANOTnEK Railroad.?The Beau
fort correspondent of the Augusta
Chronicle says: "Beaufort is soon to
have another railroad. One hundred
and fifty hands are now at work grad

surveyors get the road located to
Branchville they will return to Green
Pond and survey and locate the road to
Beaufort. The road will cross from
the main land to the island at Port

think it is news to our Branchville
A Wonderful Paper?Our best ex
change is the Graphic News of Cincin
nati, acknowledged by the press to be
the handsomest paper in the country,
while negotiations with leading au
thors, just concluded, promise to make
it the most attractive in a literary
sense. The latest announcement in
reference to it, and one that presages
much rich readiog-matter for its pat
rons, is to the effect that that drollest
of humorists, Bill Nye and A. C. Wheel
er (Nym Crinkle), one of the most en
tainiqgand pungent writers of thedav,
are to be regular contributors hereafter
to its columns._
Ho! for the Pic Xic?The Edisto
Rifle's Pic Nie comes off on next
Thursday. The committee request
that all who are invited to participate
in the enjoyments of the day will go to
the grounds by railway as there will
be ample room and it will greatly aid
the Committee in meeting their ex
penses. Tickets are only 25 cents for
the round trip. The Company will be
inspected on the same day. Baskets must
be sent to the Armory as early in the
morning as possible on the day of the
picnic, and the Committee will sec that
proper care be taken of them. The
Committee would like to have baskets
and dishes marked as plainly and se
curely as possible.
An Exciting Race.?Last Monday
Chief of Police Perryclear carried Ben
Jones alias Tom Johnson, a colored
chicken thief of considerable celebritv,
before Trial Justice I. W. Bowman, on
the charge of carrying concealed
weapons. While Mr. Bowman was
examining the witnesses, Johnson
went to the door of the office on the
pretence of spitting, when he dashed
o out and ran up the street as fast as he
could go. He was closely pursued by
the Chief and some colored men, who
finally succeeded in runiiinghim down.
On his return the reason he gave for his
attempted escape was that he could
not stand and listen to such lies as the
witnesses were swearing to against
aim. He was committed for trial.

He Cured Them.?A St. Louis
County, Missouri, man gives his ex
perience with the so-called hog cholera,
a? follows: ''My hogs became infected
through a l>oar I borrowed from a
neighbor. He sickened, died and was
buried. Then one after the other of
my sows, shotes and pigs took sick, and
not knowing what to do, I consulted
my old doctor. He advised me to dig
up some may_-apple roots, pokeherry
and mullen roots, clean them, chop
them up put them in a large kettle
with plenty of water, and boil them for
several hours. I gave the hogs noth
ing to eat for half a day, and then gave
them about a pint of the decoction in a
pail of warm slops with a little bran. I
repeated this three times a day for a
week or longer, gradually adding more
bran to slops. All recovered but one
which could not be induced to drink the
slops. My neighbor, of whom I had
borrowed the boar, lost 40 head, and
another who took a shote home from
my farm where it had straggled and
mixed with my hogs, lost over 20 head.
Neither of them tried my remedy. I
have not had a case of cholera on my
place since. This remedy is so simple
and has proved so effective in my case
that I hope you will give it to your
readers, that others may try it, and if
it should prove itself to be a remedy
against that fearful scourge, hog
cholera, it should be made known
through the whole country.
seventh anniversary meeting of. the
Woman's Missionary Society of St.
Paul's Methodist Church was held at
that church last Sunday evening. Des
pite the threatening aspect of thej
weather a good congregation was pre
sent. The reports of the Secretary and
Treasurer, which were read by the Rev.
J. E. Carlisle, showed the Society to be
in a most nourishing condition. After
a recitation by Miss Ilattie Wanna
maker, a member of the Wightman
Palmetto Leaves, a juvenile mission
ary societv connected with the church,
ih'e Rev. *W. D. Kirkland was intiu
duced as the speaker of the evening,
and delivered a most masterly address
on the importance of mission work
generally, and woman's missionary
work particularly. The address was fall
of encouragement to the women of the
church to persevere in the grand work
of sending the Gospel to the benighted
lands of heathenism, and was listened
to with rapt attention by the audience.
Mr. Kirkland is a forcible and eloquent
speaker, and those who heard his
address last Sunday night were vtell
entertained. The exercises were parti
cipated in by the Rev. Edwin Mulbr,
Pastor of the Presbyterian Churjh
who occupied a seat in the pulpit.
The Feast ok the Passover.?The
Jewish feast of the passover, the fist
of the three great annual feasts institu
ted by Moses, commemorates the de
parture of the children of Israel fr?m
the land of Egypt. This feast be$an
last Tuesday. The orthodox Jews tad
ceremonies at their homes on the ev?n
ing of the 19th. At these private cere
monies there was unleavened bread
representing the kind of bread' tto
childred of Israel ate in their haste to
leave Egypt; bitter herbs, representing1
the bitterness of bondage; and a mix
ture representing the mortar used to
build the cities that were built for
Pharoah during the time uf?7Tavery.
There was also a representation of the
Paschal lamb, and red wine represen
ting the Red sea. This "Paschal meal"
is a hallowed family feast. Orthodox
Jews aro very particular about /he
wine used and will take none tha; is

Careless Shooting.?We clip the
following from the Kingstree Star and
Herald, of last week: "A sail story
conies from the vicinity of Suttens, on
the confines of Wiliiamsburg and
Georgetown. Two men, named respec
tively Lambert and Wilson, went out
turkey hunting. On reaching' the
hunting grounds they separated. Some
time afterwards, unknowingly, they
approached each other, and Lanibert,
mistaking Wilson's imitation of the
turkey for the bird's cry itself, and de
ceived by appearances in the dim dawn
light, shot at his companion fora tur
key, the shot taking effect and giving a
mortal wound. Wilson died in a short
while, having commended his family
to Lambert's 2are. The latter is said to
be greatly distressed by the unfortu

frequency of such accidents as the
above should make people more care

The special committee appointed at
the last regular meeting of Council to
confer with the Board of Health in
reference to Mr. Cornelson's obstruc
tion in the old grave yard branch, sub
mitted the following from that Board.
"I consider the pond harmful to the
health of the town, and have formed
my opinion from the following facts:
1st, It is situated on the principal
channel by which the town is drained,
and acts as an impediment to the free
out-How of the filth that takes this
route, allowing a great deal of it to
accumulate on its bottom to decompose
and'pollute the surrounding ground,
water and atmosphere.
2nd, The pond give3 rise to fogs and
dampness, and the latter serves as a
carrier of any decomposing matter
that may be evolved, and adds to the
injurious effects of such matter in the
3rd, The evaporation of the pond and
ground water lowers temperature, pro
duces chills, and increase the sudden
and injurious changes of temperature
by which health is injured.
4th, It causes a persistently high
ground water?in its neighborhood?
and thus favors the decomposition of
organic matter in the soil, and the
evolution of unhealthy effluvia."
But I think It would be very unwise
to run it down at this season of the
year, and expose all of the accumulated
filth to the heat of the comming sum
It would not do to trouble it till next
winter, unless it is filled with clay or
sand alter the water is run-off.

member of the Board and the under
signed members agree in themain with
above. W. C. Wannamaker, M. D.,

After recess the Special Committee
made the following report:
That Mr. Cornelson was willing to

in the matter. That he had no furth

They Have Come and Gone.?We
are called upon this week to chronicle
the departure from our midst, of the
Horse .Shoe Bed Spring Company, who
for the last two months have been sup
plying our County with the famous
House-Shoe Bed-Springs. These gentle
men came to us highly recommended,
both as workmen and business men,
and most creditably have they sustain
ed the recommendation. Their springs
have given entire satisfaction to all.
In fact we venture the assertion that
those who have purchased them would
not be without them for double their
cost. They have by their courtesy and
fair dealing, won the good opinion of
our people and take with them our best
wishes for success. They go to Lex
ington, Va., and we most cordially com
mend them and their excellent springs
I to the people of that section.?Chns
tiansburg, Va., Messenger.
The Horse-Shoe Bed-Springs manu
factured and sold here by Messrs. Tur
ner, Terry & Bros, are giving entire
satisfaction to all who are using them.
Do not fail to buy a set when the
agent calls on you. All are invited to
come and see us and witness the pro
cess of manufacture.
