Sudden Death.?Mr. Calhoun In
abinet, of Caw Caw Township, died
very suddenly last Monday night. He
was busy all day in the field, and eat a
very hearty supper and went to bed.
Sometime during the night he woke
his wife up, telling her he was sick,
but before she could do any thing for
him he died. Mr. Inabinet was about
forty-five years old, and a good citizen.
Flour Corn.?The Xews and Couri
er of the 20th says that Capt, A. T.
Harllee has sent to the agricultural
department some samples of his Hour
corn. Some months ago mention was
made in this correspondence of a sam
ple of flour sent to the bureau by Mr.
Harllee. The corn is described as
being very prolific and having but little
in its composition besides flour. This
flour is remarkably fine and cannot be
distinguished from wheat flour.
Entertainment at St. Matthews.
The ladies of our sister town of St.
Mathews propose giving an entertain
ment on next Thursday evening, May
6th, for the purpose of raising funds to
provide a?public reading room for that
town. Ice cream, cakes and other
danties will be served, and it is hoped
that the ladies will meet with a grand
sncces3, as the object they have in
view is a most worthy one, and de
serves encouragement. So let every
one, who can,?attend.
A Double Headed Snake.?Capt.
W. W. Oliver, of Middle St. Matthews,
sent to town last week a snake killed
on his place by a colored man that was
a curiosity, the snake had two fully
developed heads, one on each'end, and
could travel either way with ease. We
know that snakes are bad things to
construct extraordinary stories on, but
the above is a literal fact, and can be
vouched for by a number of gentlemen
who examined the double-headed rep
tile. We never heard of such a thing
before, and would like to see an expla
nation of it from some of our scientific
A Runaway?Last Saturday after
noon, just about the time the train
from Columbia arrived at the depot, a
-JP*^~ hitched to a buggy became
?"?"?trightened and ran away, smashing up
things generally. This caused the
horses in the omnibus of the Orange
burg Hotel to become frightened and
away they went up Amelia street with
only two little children in the omnibus.
After running from the depot to the
school house of Mr. Mellichamp they
were stopped by Mr. Julius A. Ed
wards, who happened to be on the
street. Nothing was hurt, but the
little fellows inside were overjoyed at
their safe deliverence.
The Fink Tea.?As stated last week
the ladies of the Lutheran Church will
give a pink tea during the early part of
May, for the benefit of their church.
The novelty of the* entertainment will
no doubt attract many visitors, and all
who go, can be assured of having a nice
time. Everything will be of the color
of pink, the ladies will be dressed in
pink, the tables will be covered with
pink, and the dishes will be pink. An
exclusive predominating decided color
will make a picturesque effect, and such
as this has never been seen in Orange
burg. The object for which the enter
tainment is given is a worthy one, and
should have a liberal encouragement.
Southern Statistics.?The Bureau
of Statistics under the Treasury De
partment, has under preparation a re
port of the industrial and commercial
interest of the Southern States, east of
the Mississippi and South of the Poto
mac. Mr. L. A. Ransom, of the Agri
cultural Department of this State, has
been appointed by the Chief of the Bu
reau at Washington, to furnish the
statistics from this State. It is the
first effort of this kind which has been
made, and is necessarily attended with
a good many difficulties. The depart
ment ;isks th9 aid of every one inter
ested in making a good showing to
inform them of the various industries
in the State. Nothing will do more to
improve our country than to l3t other
people know our natural advantages,
and what can be made by a proper de
velopment of our resources.
Easter.?The Easter Day services at
the Church of the Redeemer, Rev. II. J.
Broadwell, M. D., Hector, were un
usally interesting. The beautiful
blending of evergreen, moss and dow
ers showed the most exquisite taste on
the part of the ladies of the parish and
a most cordial interest in rendering
the church attractive. The musical
part of the service was beautifully and
impressively rendered. In the morn
ing the Rector preached from Col., Ill,
4, "Christ who is our life." and celebra
ted the Holy Communion. In the af
ternoon, evening prayer was said and a
Children's Easter serviee was held, in
which the singing of Carols, repeating
of Scripture passages, a short address by
the Rector, and the distribution of
Easter Cards, formed a pleasant ami
interesting service. An unusually
large attendance marked both the
morning and afternoon service.
Ho. FOR Aiken!?The Baptist Sun
day School of our town has made very
favorable arrangements with the South
Carolina Railroad for an excursion to
Aiken, on Tuesday, May 11th. It will
be a basket pic-nic, and the Sunday
schools of all the denominations have
been invited to unite. The Committee
of Arrangements, with a special eye to
the pleasure of the children, has fixed
upon, the following low rates of
passage : "Sunday school children, 25
cents; all other persons, 31.00. Con
sidering the fact that Aiken is a most
popular and attractive resort, and that
Orangeburg has never yet had an
excursion of this kind to that city, we
have no doubt that a great many" will
avail themselves of the opportunity of
so pleasant a trip. The train will leave
Orangeburg at 7 A. M.; arrive at Aiken
at 10 A. M.; leave Aiken at 5 P. M.. and
return to Orangeburg at 8 P. M? thus
giving the excursionists seven hours
in Aiken. Tickets will be placed for
sale, at once, at the stores of Messrs.
Theodore Kohn and Lowman & Dukes.

The Impression M?<le Upon a Stranger by
it Visit to our Tou-i*.
Sometime ago Clerk of Court Willis
of Collt ion County, paid a brief visit
to our town, and this is what he has to
say about us in the Colleton Press:
As vour paner is teeming with politics,
I thought I might please some of your
readers by varying the "bill of fare,"
and give them a short account of my
recent trip to the city of Orangeburg.
I will dispense with all apologies and
preliminaries, and commence by saying
that I spent the night of the 2nd in
stant, with my relatives in the pleasant
little town of Reevesville. I took the
8 o'clock train Saturday morning, and
in one and a half hours I stepped on
the Orangeburg depot. I was met
there and warmly greeted by my old
friend and former neighbor, Capt. H.
G- Sheridan, who conducted me to his
pleasant home situated a short distance
from the depot. Capt. Sheridan, assist
ed by his two sons, are conducting one
among the best classical schools in the
country. He has under his charge
ninety scholars and live counties are
represented in his school. Boys are
prepared here to enter the higher
classes in college or for the active
duties in life. He has several boys,
and at least one young lady, from Colle
ton. We took a walk through the busi
ness portion of the city, and I was as
tonished to see the crowd of people
thronging the sidewalks, crowding the
stores, the street, as well as the large
wagon yard of Mr. Cornelson, were
filled with vehicles of every kind from
the country, and I suppose I saw at
least fifty bales of cotton brought in for
sale. Mr. Cornelson has, I think, the
finest store and largest stock of goods
in the city. Messrs. Kohn. Pike and
Epstin, have also large stores. Dr.
Wannamaker has the finest drus: store
in the city. My young friend from
Colleton Dr. Reeves is doing well in
the drug business also. We visited the
office of The Times and Democrat,
Editor Sims was out, but we were po
litely shown over the office and found
every thing in good style. It is a live
paper, and its gentlemanly editor (to
who 11 I was introduced later in the
day, and roomed with him while in the
city) deserves the success he has achiev
ed. Later in the evening Capt. Sheri
dan took me in his buggy through all
the principal streets of the city and to
every place of note in the suburbs of
the city. Orangeburg is certainly a
beautiful as well as a thriving city, dud
when they build their Lewiedale and
Fork Rail Road the business of the
city will be doubled. I like Orange
burg very much and was very much
pleased with ray short viait.

Brutal Treatment of a Child ?
The correspondent of the News and
Courier, writing from this place, under
date of List Saturday, says: "One of
the most brutal and inhuman acts of
cruelty ever committed in a civilized
country has recently come to light in
this county. It seems that about two
weeks ago a little negro child, about
four years of age, in the upper part of
this county, was by some accident
severely burned. The child did not
live with its parents, but was at the
house of a relative, a colored man. It
had not recovered from Its burns, and
was unable to get up or move from its
bed. On Saturday night last this ne
gro man deliberately left home, with
out providing either food or water for
the helpless sufferer, and did not return
until the following Sunday night or
Monday morning, when the child, had
been left alone, was found dead. An
inquest was held, and the physician
who made the post-mortem examina
tion assures tne the child died from
actual starvation. An examination of
the intestines and stomach showed an
entire absence of food or liquid. Surely
this is a case that merits and should
receive the severest punishment." '
Swindles.?There has been much
said lately about the "Bohemian oat
swindle." But the whole thing is so
barefaced that we do not sympathize
much with the unfortunate suckers.
But what is worse and more insinua
ting is the fruit tree swindle. It takes
longer to learn that you are swindled,
but the damage is almost'irreparable.
There is only one way to be safe in
buying fruit trees, and that is uncer
tain enough; and that is to buy of some
local nursery man that has an estab
lished reputation for fair dealing. Give
the shck-tongned, slick picture-book
tree agent a wide berth, and set the dog
on him if he is too persistent. A safe
rule is to buy nothing of unknown
The Road Law.?Maj. Harry Ham
mond, of Beech Island, condemns the
existing road laws in South Carolina
and suggests that the public highways
be placed under the mangement of a
State board which should employ com
petent surveyors and engineers. The
expense of this board is to be met by a
tax, two thirds of which should be
levied on vehicles, and the remaining
one third on all other property. This
is a subject that should receive the at
tention of the Farmers' Convention.
THE FARMERS MEET.
Full Proceedings of the Convention Held
In pursuance of a call published last
week, a convention of the fanners of
Orangeburg County assembled in the
Court House on Saturday last. On
motion Capt. J. H. Felder was call to
the chair and Mr. A. D. Fair requested
to act as Secretary. Capt. Felder in
announcing the object of the meeting
said that the convention had not met
to talk merely or by any act to antago
nize any class or interest of our citi
zens, but to discuss matters relating to
the farming interest and the welfare
of our county. Many slaps had been
made at this movement of the tanners
from several quarters, but admitting
that Mr. Tillman did deal in extreme
language, he had an extreme case to
call it forth. Other interests had unit
ed and why may-not the farmers unite
without being considered as antagoniz
ing any other interest of our citizens,
for we all claimed this State as our
grand mother and we should speak no
unkind word or perform no unkind act
to another. The object then of the
convention was to elect five delegates
from the county at large to attend the
State Farmer's Convention to assemble
in Columbia on the 29th instant.
Mr. V. V. S. Austin said he was a
farmer and could not say much about
the matter, but he thought this conven
tion ought to send delegates to confer
with the Columbia Convention in order
that we may know the full meaning of
the movement. Each farmer should
understand that every interest must be
considered. We cannot do without the
merchant and are willing to pay him a
small per cent, profit on his goods. The
doctor should not be left out because
he might in some way be identified
with the farming interest. So with the
Mechanic, Clerk of the Court, &c, and
they all could go to Columbia.
Mr. Miles Hughes professed to be a
farmer but was sorry for it sometimes,
and wished his parents had brought
him up in some other occupation. He
knew nothing of the purpose of the call
whether there was more religion or
politics in it; but he thought every
fanner should go to Columbia himself,
then we could see whether there was
politics* in it or not. Nobody could
trust another man with his pocket book
and therefore should go himself.
Every one had a right to express him
self whether educated or not. lie did
not object to a delegation but would
not allow himself to uc tied up.
Mr. J. T. Kennerly thought it was
time to enter upon business and asked
how many delegates were allowed.
Being informed that live was the num
ber, he moved that the convention pro
ceed at once to elect them by ballot.
Mr. Austin in seconding this motion
said that although we were assembled
in a farmers' convention, we were not
selfish and our programme should be
"to live and let live." It was impossi
ble to separate our work from politics
and we were obliged to abide by what
ever the politicians do, for if we sink
it will be through our law-makers.
Five delegates having been already
appointed from the Agricultural Socie
ty, he was willing to send five more
and to abide by their action. lie saw
five gentlemen in the house whom he
could trust for whatever may he done
in Columbia could not be final. If other
gentlemen desired to attend that con
vention he had no objection.
Mr. W. A. Mackey moved to amend
Mr. Kennedy's motion by inserting the
words: And that the live candidates
receiving the highest number of votes
be declared elected and that the nomi
nations be restricted to ten. The mo
tion of Mr. Kennerly as amended was
then read as follows:"
Resolved, That this convention pro
ceed at once to elect by ballot live dele
gates to represent this county in the
fanners convention to assemble in Co
lumbia on the 29 instant, and that the
five receiving the highest number of
votes be declared elected and that the
three next be declared alternates.
Maj. W. A. O'Cain atthispoint raised
the question as to who should be allow
ed to participate in these deliberations;
because gentlemen, members of the
Agricultural Society, were supporting
this measure. He only raised the point
to be informed and asked for the infor
mation. The President ruled that
members of the Agricultural Society
could participate in the discussion but
could not vote.
Mr. W. A. Mackay, excited, said he
was a farmer of Orangeburg County
and, because he happens to be a mem
ber of the Agricultural Society, he is to
be debarred by the President's ruling
of a voice in" this meeting. Such a
thing was an outrage. He had been
instrumental in calling this very
meeting and yet he is to be shut out
and allowed no part or voice in saying
who of his fellow citizens should repre
sent him and his interest. In all his
life he had never heard of such a high
handed measure and it was nothing
more or less than an outrage upon the
farming interest of the county.
Mr. Austin moved that all fanners
be allowed to participate and to vote in
the proceeding of this meeting.
This motion being carried, Mr. Ken
nedy's resolution was adopted and the
convention proceeded to the election,
which resulted as follows:
Delegates, Messrs. .). II. Felder, J.
IT. Dukes, a. D Fair, L. S. Connor and
v. v S. Austin. Alternates, Messrs.
J, T. Kennerly, W. a. Mackay, lt. F. Win
and Dr. lt. W. Bates.

Hkai.thy (i-ii:r?s.-Nothing, says
Dio Lewis, is so terrible as severe
neuralgia; and, beyond a doubt, girls
acquire it often enough by the condi
tions of school life. Headache in a
school girl usually means exhausted
nervo power through over-work, over
excitement, over-anxiety, or bad air.
Rest, a good laugh, a country walk,
will 'usually cure it readily enough to
begin with. Hut to become subject to
"headaches is a very serious matter; and
all such nervous diseases have a nasty
tendency to recur, to become periodic,
to be set up by the same cause, to be
come an organic habit of the body.
For any woman. to become liable to
neuralgia is a most terrible thing. It
means that while it lasts lifeisnot
worth having. It paralyzes the power
to work, it deprives her of the power to
enjoy anything, it tends toward irrita
bility of" temper, it .tempts the use of
narcotics and stimulants. So says Dr.
Nelson, and so say I. A girl who finds
herself subject to neuralgia should at
once change her habits, if but to grow
strong in body. Of what use is educa
tion with ill health ? A happy girl
must be a healthy one. The Greeks
educated their girls physically; we edu
cate ours mentally. The Greek inotb.es
bore the finest children the world ever
produced. The Greek education of
girls developed beautiful women, and
their beauty lasted till old age. The
beautiful Helen was as handsome at
fifty as at "sweet sixteen."
Tins Comet.?A comet is now visible
in the morning skies, and it can be
seen any clear morning with the naked
eye from 2 o'clock until dawn blots it
from view. It is the comet discovered
by Fabry at Paris, France, on Decem
ber 1st last. With a telescope the comet
is a beautiful object, with a tail some
five degrees or six degrees long, very
slender and neatly shaped. A bright
starlike nucleus shines in the head and
is surrounded by a nebulous glow of
light. A group of small stars can be
seen some distance back of the head
shining through the gauzy train with
out any diminution of "their lustre.
The comet is a conspicuous object and
will, after to-day, be visible in the
evening, sitting less than an hour after
the sun, but it will be 5u0 times as
bright as when discovered, which may
somewhat compensate for the disad
vantage of its being seen on a twilight
sky. The comet will then be moving
very rapidly toward the Southwest.

cost. They have by their courtesy and
fair dealing, won the good opinion of
