The Weather and Other Matters.
F7LTo\, S. C., January 25, 1886.
Mr. EDITOR : The terribly cold weather
which we have been enduring lately, and
which the prophets predict will return this
winter, seems to have prolucel the same
effect on news as on business-it has stoir
ped them both. Such weather has never
before been felt in this neighborhood-not
even by that INFALLII (?) character, "the
oldest inhabitant," who heretofore has never
been heard to acknowledge that in his ear.
ly days -which are always beyond the Ken
of anybody else living-he has not seen the
thermometer at least ten degrees lower. It
has entailed very serious losses on many of
those who had'grain in the ground, and on
those who own stock-which at this time of
year are forced to repair for food to the
swamps, where they subsist on the cane
tops found there. The former was all kil
led-and it will necessitate an entire re
planting of the whole grain crop. Numbers
of cattle and hogs were caught unawares in
the swamps, by the unprecedented rapid
rise of the Water, and perished before they
could be rescued. I amt reliably informed
that _1r. Jas. P. Weeks of this vicinity was
so unfortunate as to lose all of his stock-in
cluding 35 or 40 head of cattle, and a large
number of hogs. By another gentleman
whose loss was also very great, was told.
that for several days, the carcasses of large
numbers of hogs and cattle could be seen
floating down the river alongside of ice
bergs half the size of a house.
"But it's an ill-wind that blows nobody
good," and even this unpleasant snap
brought pleasure and enjoymont to some, in
the shape of delightful skating on the ponds
of the neighborhood --all of which were well
frozen over, in many instances, to the depth
of six inches. Ice-skating had never been
seen by niany of the people in this section,
and was apparantly much enjoyed by them
--large numbers congregating every evening
to see it, and to laugh over the ludicrous at
tempts of those novices who could be induc
ed to get on the treacherous steel.
Besides the weather, the only topic of con
versation around Fulton for some time past,
has been the recent amendment to the ien
law. Various opinions in regard to it are
held. but all seem to agree in thinkin:: tha
it is the opening wedge which will eventual
ly split to pieces a law which has been pro
ductive of much irreparable loss to our

throwing a stone lie broke his arm
between the shoulder and elb.:,w. I
knew another man," continued the
seaker," who kicked at a dog and
broke his thigh. Investigation showed
that both these men had been taking
ho-ge quantities of mercur-y, and for
quite a time. If they had been under
the treatment of good physicians to
regulate the dose and quantity, it
would no doubt have been all right,
bt they had been taking nostrumis
containing such poisonous drugs as
merury, potash, etc., and had fatally
impaired their health." These cases are
beyond the reach of S. S.S. or any
other remedy, but they might have
been saved if they had taken the right
medicine. Mr. Thomas H. Morgan,
of Ogiethorpe, Ga., says that he suf
fered many years from mineral pois
oning and had a terrible mercurial
sore on his leg which his doctor
thought would render ampantation
necessary. He objected to the cutting
and took Swift's Specific instead.
The result is that he is entirely well,
has two good legs, and is in better
health than for many y-ears.
