morning- an old colored man by the
name of Gabriel Thomas fell dead in
Manor. Jackson's meat shop on Market
sreet. The verdict of the Coroner's
jury was that he died from natural
causes, the immediate cause of his
death being apoplexy."

Death of Mrs. Eliza Hoffman.?
A correspondent writing to us jfroin
Jones'Bridge under date of July 2iith,
says: "We have been called upon in
the last few days to pay the last tribute
of respect to Mrs. Eliza Hoffman, for
merly the consort of Mr. Burnett
Livingston, Sr., whose beneficence con
tributed largely to the building of the
Baptist- Church of your city."
The Cadets.?The squad of Citadel
Cadets who visited our town last week
made a fine impression on our people
by their gentlemanly deportment and
urbane manners, and we hope they en
joyed their visit. A ball was given as
a compliment to them at Way's Hall
last Friday night, which was largely
attended by our young folks, and every
thing passed off very pleasantly.

Gone to Best.?Mrs. Eliza A. Can

afternoon, after a long arid painful ill

fortitude and resignation. Mrs. Can

time of her" death,'the greater part of
which was speut in our town, she was
a most excellent lady, and leaves a
large circle of relatives and friends to
mourn her death. She was a consis

Fire?The residence and all the
furniture of Dr. W. F. Harton, near
Bowesville, was totally destroyed by
fire last Monday night. Dr. Barton
and family lost all their wearing ap
parel and barely escaped with their
lives, Mrs Barton being severely burn
ed about the face and hands. ' The first
intimation the family had of the fire
was about two o'clock, when some of
them were awakened by a dog jump
ing up to a window of one of the bed
rooms. The fire was then well under
way and had evidently been burning
some time. The fire "is supposed to
have boon the result of an accident or
defective flue. _ _
Fortunate.?We consider any man
fortunate who takes a good agricul
tural journal. In fact we do do not
believe that a man can farm success
fully without the assistance of an -agri
cultural paper. In speaking about
agriculturals we want to call the at
tention of our farmers to the Cotton
Plant?the only agriculture journal in
our State. It is a beautifully printed
8-Page, 40-Column Journal, teeming
each issue with rich information for
our farmers, and only costs Sixty Cents
a year. We hope all our subscribers
who do not take this paper will send
fcr a sample copy. The July number
is to hand and is brimful of good,
wholesome matter. Each number is
worth ten times a year's subscription.

It is pleasant to stop by the way side

making others happy. If we will but
do this, we secure our own happiness.
These were some of the thoughts which
passed through our mind on our return
from Wesley Grove Church on last
Saturday, where we had attended a
Sunday School celebration and picnic.
This school it under charge of Super
intendent II. O. Smoke, a good man and
true, a faithful christiau gentleman,
and one whose earnestness and zeal in
this department of church work, con
stitutes the secret of his success, for he
has made this school a success, and is
still pressing on to higher attainments.
He is seconded in his elforts by a corps
of teachers equally as earnest as him
self. We may reasonably expect, that
from this "nursery of the church" in
the near future, the church proper, will
gain strengh numerically and what is
infinitely more important, spiritually.
The programme for this occasion was
chaste and appropriate, and very cred
itably carried out, consisting in part of
recitations by the young ladies of the
school. The boys and young men took
no part, except in the singing. This
we thought a little singular. The
singing, led by Mr. C. C. Ellzey, was
inspiring. As far as we could see, and
we took occasion to try to see, every
body, from.the least to the greatest as
sisted in this part of the exercises, and
the volume of harmony rose and filled
the church, and spread out through the
surrounding forests, making the very
words resound and the hearts glad.
We could but draw a comparison here.
Comparatively few in the town
churches take part in this portion of
public worship; and why? It is a poor
excuse to say that they are waiting for
the choir?they are only expected to
lead, not to monopolize, and we are
sure they desire all to join in heartily.
.This in passing. Four or five gentle
men had been invited by the Superin
tendent to deliver addresses to the
school and strange to say, but a single
one put in an appearance, another was
captured on the spot, and upon these
two fell the burden of the speechuiak
ing. The Rev. Baldwin and Benj. P.
Izlar were the scapegoats of tire occa
sion. Each, like the woman in the
Bilde, "did what lie could" and the
prayerful hope is, that some profit may
come from what was said. The Super
intendent closed with an interesting
little speech after which dinner *s
announced. This was another p \
where all with one accord joined hear
tily; but the table was bountifully
spread with the best, and we could not
"clear it up" although every one did
his level best. Commend us to the
Wesley Grove people, Methodist and
Baptist, for knowing how to do the
right thing in the way of a picnic din
ner. May peace and prosperity attend
them. _ B.
Old Time Fanning.
The. veteran (Georgia farmer, Major
John II. Dent, of Floyd county, in a
letter to the Country Gentleman makes
this reference to if much-discussed sub
ject : What has operated much against
the farmers of late days is depending
so largely (or I may say, entirely de
pending) "on expensive bought ferti
lizers, instead of raising cifrps-J.hat
would leave vegetable matteU to turn
under to benefit their lands. Making
lot manures has nearly been abandon
ed, as it was found so convenient to
purchase the commercial fertilizers,
not taking into consideration the ex
pense of such fertilizers, and in some
cases their worthlessness. This un
wise system has ruined many, both in
pecuniary results and in using ferti
lizers that were of no permanent bene
fit to their lands. Humus we need;
without humus, the land wUJ not hold
moisture; hence so much complaint is
made of droughts. To sum it up in a
few words, the best of land, and most
favorable seasons, cannot maintain
any farmer who buys his fertilizers
and all his food supplies. We want
going back to the old-time, common
sense farming?entirely self-sustain
ing and independent. There is too
much gilt-edge about it now?more
fancy than substance?when we should
remind ourselves that "it is not all
gold that glitters."
A Word to Young Men.
A young man who thinks that he
can lead a reckless and profligate life
I until he becomes a middle-aged man,
and then repent and make a good and
steady citizen, is decidely deluded by
the devil. He thinks that people are
fools, destitute of memory. He con
cludes that it he repents everybody
will forget that he was a dissipated
wretch. This is not the case. People
remember your bad deeds and forget
good ones. Besides, it is not easy to
break up middle aged habits that have
been formed in youth. When a horse
contracts the habit of balking he
generally retains it through life. He
will often perform well enough until
the wheels get into the deep rut, and
then he holds back. Just so it is with
boys who contract bad habits. They
will some time leave off their bad
tricks, and do well until they get into
a tight place, and then they return to
the old habit. Of those boys who con
tract the bud habit of drunkenness,
not one in every hundred dies a sober
man. The only way to break up a bad
habit is to never contract it. The only
way tu prevent drunkenness is never

Gentlemen.?AVe the undersigned
property holders and citizens of the
City of Orangeburg residing on Doyle,
Calhoun,, Meeting and Wiles Streets
and vicinity, do hereby call your atten
tion to the property lying on Calhotin,
Meeting and Wiles Streets, known as
Mr. G. H. Cornelson's Factory Quarters,
and present the same to your honora
ble body as a nuisance. First, the con
dition in which the premises are kept,
especially the water-closets, renders
the air so foul that we who reside near
it, are frequently compelled to keep the
fronts of our dwellings closed in order
to shut out the stench and foul air
arising on these premises. Second, the
conduct and behavior of some of the
occupants of these premises are such
that it renders it very unpleasant to us
who reside near this place, and again
the aforementioned condition of these
premises has also reduced the value of
our property, that we do not feel justi
fied in making a full and fair return of
our Heal Estate to your honorable body
Wherefore, under the existing cir
cumstances we feel justified in peti
tioning your honorable body to use all
means in your power to abate this
nuisance compelling its removal.

Dear Sir.?The "Equitable Life As
surance Co." has paid its city license of
810.00, but under protest, because I am
informed that other Life Insurance
Co's., are not taxed. The matter is one
for just complaint. The State requires
a license or the agent soliciting busi
ness is liable to penalty. Your city re
quires a license else a penalty. It is not
for Council to discriminate because of a
'figure head" name, Knights, or Farm
ers or mutual, all have the same object
i. e.to solicit lmsiness.get premiums by
instalments, assessments or all cash.
The end is the same. Now the Equita
ble is "Tontine," that is reimburses in
10, 15 or 20 years, and is mutual. I
hope Council will explain the differ
ence between one company being favor
ed free of tax, and another not. The
money gathered in premiums all goes
out of the State, except the little
Farmers Society. We only desire jus
tice. Respectfully, &c.,
John A. Hamilton.

A DASTARDLY ACT.
A Corpse Horribly Diatitated?Heart Re
moved and Thumb.-, Cut Oft*.
The following particulars of a most
horrible affair we clip from the Aiken
Recorder of this week : Seven months
ago, Tillman B. Williams a young man
of unexceptionally good character and
well related, died at the residence of
his brother, Dr. Simpson F. Williams
near the line of Orangeburg and Aiken
counties, and was decently buried in
the Mt. Hermon Baptist Church ceme
tery. The church is in Aiken county,
very near Hausey's Bridge, Xorth Edis
to River, and the cemetery is on the
opposite side of the river, in Lexing
ton count}-, about 175 yards from the
foot of the bridge. Sometime between
the mornings oi* the 23rd and 25th of
.July, most likely during the night of
the 24th, some party or parties went to
the grave of said deceased, and threw
the earth out of the grave, removed
covering of box, and tore up, wrench
ing in some places, the coffin lid,, and
then its was thought, without molest
ing the remains, replaced lid, and box
covering carefully and about half refill
ed the grave with earth. On Sunday
evening the 25th of July, about 6
o'clock, Mr. Middleton Williams,
brother of deceased, discovered the
grave as left. lie immediately notified
Messrs. Irving Furtick, a brother-in
law of deceased, W. A. Gantt and
others. They re-opened the grave and
partly removed the covering of box anil
coffin and ascertained that the remains
had not been removed, the lateness of
the hour, and the offensiven ess of the
corps, prevented their making a more
thorough search. They replaced the
coverings, refilled the grave, finished
oil' on outside and left. Two or three
days after, the father, Wm. H. Wil
liams, other brothers and relatives met,
consulted, and not being able to ac
count for, or even surmise the motives
that would prompt any one to do such
an act, decided to hold an autopsy on
Friday the 30th of July. Summoning
Ors. I. D. and W. I). Durham and a few
of the citizens they proceeded to re
open the grave and coffin. When Dr.
Durham with disinfectants in hand re
marked, "gentlemen you had better
stand back a few minutes', until the lid
is removed," no one thought what a
horrible spectacle would be presented
to view, a mangled or mutilated corpse.
After a thorough examination in the
presence of all by Drs. Simpson Wil
liams, I. D. and W. D. Durham, Dr. I.
D. Durham thus.summed up there
suit of their examination. "Gentle
men you see the knife has been used,
opening the chest fron: just above the
navle to clavicle or collar bone, cutting
centrally through sternum making an
incision more than twelve inches long,
cutting out and removing the heart,
and cutting off and removing the two
thumbs." It has caused much excite
ment and comment, and the conjec
tures have been many, but so far noth
ing that will give a clue either to the
detection of perpetrator or motive.
That such a thing should happen in a
retired country churchyard of more
than fifty years standing is to be re
gretted, but we forbear to comment.
i.awn Party at Feldervlllc.
Last evening your correspondent had
the pleasure of attending the Lawn
Party at Felderville, given by the
young ladies of that community in aid
of the Antioch Baptist Church. To
say it was a success, would hardly do
the committee justice, as the sum of
money realized was beyond their an
ticipations. Socially, we all had a good
time. The young folks seemed to enjoy
themselves hugely, while those of us
who were older did justice to the ice
cream, cake, and other good things of
which the tables wen- loaded. One
gentleman, whom everybody delights
to call uncle, certainly believes in the
Scripture, "Give and it shall be given,"
judging from the time he remained at
the table. About 8 o'clock Capt. J. II.
Felder, after making one of the best
little speeches of welcome, announced
supper, the make up of which, goes far
to show what good housekeepers the
young ladies of that section will make.
