( Frm the Vews and Courier.)
COLUBMA January 27.--It *il be
emembered that the terms upon
brhich the boaid of directors of the
nitentiary, at their meetings held in
e early part of this month, leased
three bIantations for convict res4dence
labor were not made public because
the contract had not been committed
to writing. Much interest has beel
exhibited in the matter, and it seemed
desirable'that the public should be in
formed of the details of the contracts.
Inquiry was made this morning at the
office of the Clerk of Court for this
county, and it was found that the
Seegers and Sims contracts had been
signed and were in the Clerk's hands
The lease of the Seegers plantation
contains the following provisions:
John C. Seegers leases to the board of
directors of the penitentiary for a
term of five years from January 1,
188, his "Big Lake" plantation, locat
ed in Richland county, some miles
below Columbia. He agiees to fur
nish all the farm utensils, implements
and machinery required by the dire
tors, and to furnish also such mules
as may be required by the directors
for farm work and a horse for the use
of the manager of the farm. He furth
er agrees to farnish all the lumber
necessary for the mainteiance and re
pair ofthe convict stockade and such
land as may be required for vegetable
gardens. He agrees to pay each year
during the term of the agreement and
lease one-half of amounts which shall
be required for'the purchase of coin
mercial fertilizers and cotton bagging
The directors agree to occupy and
use the farms solely for the employ
ment of convicts, the convicts to be
managed by eficers and guards of the
penitentiary- They agree to furnih
such X umber of convicts as may be
necessary for the proper cultivation of

Wnit i be Biought by a White Child's Coil
ored Parents Because it was Dismissed
(From the Grbeenrille News.)
An Interesting and reiarkable case,
which may come under the civil rights
laws, has been develoyed in Gnatt,
township, this county. The West
Gnatt High School, a few miles be
low the city, is a flourishing one for
white scholars, taught by T. E. Ewart.
It is suppcrted partly by individual
subscriptions of white citizens and
partly from the public fund, having a
ten nouths' session, and i- patronized
by the best people of that section. In
the neighborhood there is a white
woman married to a well-to-do renter
named Smith; who claims to be a
Spaniard, but is regarded and treated
as a fall blooded negro, having every
appearance of being one. Before her
marriage to Smith, the woman was a
widow and had a number of children
who are pure white. These children,
however, regard Smith as their father
and are called by his name. Last
week one of them, a boy of fourteen,
was sent to Mr. Ewarn's school. lie
promptly objected to the attendance of
the boy, and reported the case to the
trustees, J. J. Mackey, John P. Scruggs
and A. R. Smith. A number of pat
rons of the school gave notice that if
the Smith boy attended it they would
withdraw their children. On FridaN
the trustees met and unanimously de
cided to dismiss the boy. The com
munity -sustains Mr. Ewart and the
trustees; but the Smiths ae indignant
and declare their purpose to prosecute
ihe Ieacher and the trustees in the
United States Court under the civil
rigrts law. But 'is difficult to see
how such a prosecution could be had,
as the boy was not discriminated
against because of his race, color or
previous condition, being a full blood
ed white, and was objected to because
of the social position of his papers.
The case is without precedent so far as
A HAUNTED HOUSE.
Apparitions in a Doorway Create a Sen
sation in an Indiana Town.
About four miles to the southwest of
Wabash, Indiana stands a little cluster
of houses. The inhabitants are intel
lizent farmers who have retired roin
agricultural pursuits, intent on ending
their days in Arcadian simplicity and
quiet. One-half mile south on the
Somerset mail route is a trame cottagze
rapidly falling into decay. The heavy
front door stands ajer on one hinge
suff ently to reveal a cheerless inte
rio.- , i crumbling floor and walls.
The nearest dwelliag is a quarter of a
mile distant. That the building is the
t-cene of spectral gatherings everybody
in the town is convinoed.
About two weeks ago, while Dr.
Watson was driving past at midnight,
his horse suddenly stopped and then
began to back. Giancing toward the
old house the doctor was horrified to
observe the figure of a man in the
doorway dressed in black. His coat
and vest were thrown open revealing a
white shirs. The figure swayed back
ward and forward for several moments.
The doctor sat dazed, and then recov
ering himself applied the whip to his
horse, which sprang forward. The
Jefferson Brown, an old farmer,
while returning home from a neighooi s
lite in the night, saw a woman in the
doorway of the same house and heard
groans. The figure was clad in black
and the oress was partly in frout, ex
posing a white under garment. She
appeared to be suspended in mid-air,
with hands uplifted as though in sup
plication. The figure of a boy was
aso observed on another occasion by
Mr. Brown and two other farmers,
who heard the rattling of the rotten
floor. So frightened were they all that
they fled without investigating the
matter, and there is no disposition
among the villagers to keep vigil. It
is proposed by a party from Wabash to
watch night after inight, and solve the
mystery if possible,
THE MONUMENT TO LEE.
Design for the Proposed Memorial of the
Great Southern General.
A correspondent of the American
Register states that a distinguished
American sculptor, whose name is
withheld, recently shipped from Rome
a model for the proposed equestrian
monument to Gen. Robert E. Lee, to
be erected in Richmond, Va., and for
which several unsatisfactory competi
tions have already taken place. The
model in question is in the form of an
exquisitely designed architectural base,
squars in shape and diversified with
graceful columns in half relief. Rising
from the centre of this is a short fluted
column or altar piece, so to speak,
placed upon a smaller base, and deco
rted with a bevy of beautiful childish
figures supporting circular shields
representing the eleven Southern States
and occupying spaces between them.
The column is surmounted by a colos
sal female figure, typifying the genius
of the South, with one hand resting
upon the plough, while the other is
extended forward as if ready to crown
the warrier whose name she delights
to honor. Projecting from the princi
pal base is an extension of the same
height and style of architecture, bear
ing upon it the equestrian statue of
Lee, which at once arrests the atten
tion of the beholder as a striking and~
original conception. The horse and
rider, though in a manner such as only
a man skilled in horsemanship could
conceive of, seem to divide the honors
with each other in the contrast of
expression created by the sculptor.
Gen. Lee is shown as sitting erect and
looking intently towards a distant
point of interest, but yet calm and
strong and self-poised in his conscious
knowledge of the situation. The horse,
on the contrary, while represented as
obedient to his master's will, and
awaiting his signal for action, is step
ping slowly forward, but reaches his
head aloft and toward1s the point of
danger, indicating by his dilated nos
trils and eagerness of eye that he scents
the battle afar ofl. It is a potrait of an
animal in full sympathy with his
rider, and yet teeming with excitement
and impatience to participate in the
event about to transpire. The con
eption of the whole, it is claimed, is a
superb one, full of the lofty dignity of
character befitting the originali, and
has the high artistic quality af express
in the strong emotion both of the
rier and his steed without resort to
the too frequent necessity of physical
pursuit of Jackson, the fugitive, re
port one of their dlogs missing,. and
that a note was found on a tree, sigued
by Jackson, which said that he had
borrowed the dog to hunt with and
womlit return him in the spring.

It would appear that a fah- propor

the report be true, he was even than

of himself and his prospective heirs.

Pacific trip. The s:atement that lie
had was ti-ed only for a peg to hang a
stock j bbing scheine upon."
TIhe cortrespondenzt, however, does
woe "it'maize the bill" and leaves the
mtblic in the dark as to the details of
he stock-jobbing schieme. The Times
r iresponident fuirther states that bir.

des his family and his doctor, an
ther guest, a man of retiring mannier,
who was never sen with the excur
inlists, but who was, for till that1 in
Mr. Goul's estimation, an important
tnmher of the travelingr party. Thi~s
naun of the retiring manner was a pri
ate deire, a donghty', middle-aged
fellow of experience, who draws a
yearly salary out of Jay Gould's till."
This~ "man of retiring manner" was
not on exhibition in Charleston, at
east when the gireat multi-millionaire
went abroad in the public places,
whihre, uinder ordlinary circumstances,
Mr. Gould tmight be expected to go in
fear and trembling.
The Tu7nes discredits the story of

"As for Mr. Gould's catrrying a private

DEXTER, TEX.tS, March 15, 1SS5
BLOOD BAM Co.: It is a great pleasure
to us to state to you that your B. B. B,
takes the lead of all blood pirifiers in this
ountry, onl account of the cures it has
effected since we iave lianl- it. We hadi
a case of scrofula in our ieiglborhood, of
long standing, who had used all patent
elletlicils whicI were rieomlnemted to
him: besides this, he a!s!) had several doc
tors attending him, but everything failed
to effect any good. lie grew w.-rse every
day, and had not ieft his bed for the l.st
,ix months. We had seen him several
times in our little town, though it has been
more than fifteen monthssince we last saw
hini, and we suppose this was the last time
e was able to tome to town, as lie lives
about eight miles in the country. His
liame is Servenka, and we got a neiahbor
of 'is to persuade him to try B. B. B , and
after using only ONE BOTTLE lie left his
bed for the fir-t time in six months.
To the present time lie has used less
than three bott!cs, and he is walking
around visiting his friends in the neighbor
hood. le has gained strength and flesh
rapidly. All scrofulous sores are healing
finely, and you never saw a happier man
than he is. Nearly everybody for miles
around has heard of this wonderful cure,
and ad who need a blood remedy call for
the B. B. B.
We had a case of nasal catarrh in our
own family (a little girl of four years old),
who has been using B. B. B. for about two
weeks, and already seems to be about well.
We have oniv three bottles left, and
want you to ship us six dozen bottles.
We take pleasure in recommending
B. B. B. as a medicine worthy of the entire
confidence of the public. its action is
more rapid than any blood remedy we ever
handled. LIEDTKE BlROS.
