Wednesday, was not taken out of the

like has ever occurred, and feeling
assured that the efficient tender at

A lady enthusiast of Edgar Allen

A Mo.Nzr IMPRovEMEm.-Mr. W.
Scott Harvin has attached to his; su

is a wonder to look at in its operation
and a marvel in the way of saving la

cotton is driven under the shed and
in a few moments the whole is lifted

belongs. Mr. Harvin is always up to
the latest and best improvements.
Mirr Rx~vIrw.--The cavalry
companies of the county will be re

by Adjutant and Inspector General
Bonham, at the parade ground of the

inspections are always public, and the
companies are anxious that the peo

Especially is it desired that the ladies
assist in making the day enjoyable
with their presence.

News from the City of
FrLToN, S. C., Sept. 6, 1886.
We invested in vermilion paint,
looking forward to the result of the
primary,-and have "painted the town
i red"-at least our end of it. We are
vet "at sea" as to the outcome of the
election, so far as it concerns some
candidates. (as we have not seen a
county paper and the figures we get
from other sources are very contra
dictory) but "Argonaut" feels serene,
being assured that his favorite hee
won the race, hence the cause of en
sanguined painting-and of the exu
berant salutations of "shake, put it
there, &c." Quite a diversity of sen
timent was evidenced at the election
here; nearly every candidate in the
race received some votes-and Fulton
is the home of three candidates.
'Twas conspicuous that the most in
tense feeling was centred in the Sen
atorial contest; the vote here was:
Rhame 23, DesChamps 21.
"Tom," we did no! forget you; yes
you were constantly associated with
our cogitations. Some fellows went
three on you-we hustled around
among "our boys" and saw three, and
went ten better. The subscribers of
the TIaEs assembled en ,nade at the
P. 0. on Friday, anxiously awaiting
the arrival of the mail, in order to get
their favorite journal, but the TDIEs
did not reach us, greatly to the disap
pointment of many who wished au
thentic "primary" news, for despite
"Argonaut's" repeated and emphatic
assurances that his preferred candi
Idate had safely crossed the majority
line, vet there were a good miny
doubting Thomases. Your numerous
colored 0subscribers wanted earth
quake news-in fact they seem to re
gcard the Tnis as the only criterion
worth a cent for any ne vs.
The eventful 31st of August, 1886,

political excitement and suspense, was

yes sir, that earthquake "broke the
folks all up," and many are frighten
ed badly yet. To see the woe-be-gone
expressions depicted on some peo
ple's countenances, you would think
that they had suddenly become "dou
ble orphans," while a good number
are now experiencing the enervatirg
consequences of severe fright-one
full grown L) oy baby 2G years old,
(who hsbeen, ashe says, serving a
dark complexioned gentleman who
resides in a territory contiguous to
where earthquakes are supposed to
originate) screamed out at the height
of his voice, that judgment had come !
"but do Lord spare me this time, and
l'll join the church to-morrow !" To
be serious, we did have quite a shake,
and vibrations of varying intensity
have been felt at different intervals,
up to last night. These long contin
ued sensations have very naturally
somewhat unnerved ladies and chil
dren. Some four or five families have
improvised tents and are camping out
in their yards. This may be a wise
precaution, but as for "Argonaut" and
some others, they prefer to run any
risk fr-om a most disastrous convul
sion of the earth, than to endure the
discomfort of sleeping out these cool
nights, in addition to catering to the
appetite of myriads of hungry mo

scared! As to the colored people, they
all united in prayer, and it was obvi

ive destination of all seemed to be for
the largest crowd. They left their
several abodes, and "did not stand
upon the order of their going" but
"ot" some out of doors, windows,
cimneys, and in short, through every
possible mode of egress, and no par
ticular attention seems to have been
padt full dress costume." It
would appear that the examnple set by
the colored folks has been emulated
extensively by some of the whites.

On last Tuesday night at about
five minutes before 10 o'clock, the
houses, without warning, began to
shake and rattle. Slowly, but with
increasing force, the mane came on,
until the vibrations were too indica
tive of danger for persons longer to
remain in doors. Shouts could be
heard in every direction. Almost ev
erybody wanted to leave home. Sev
eral families got together in different
parts of the neighborhood, and a few
refused to go to bed again, but had a
general sitting up. We don't think
we ever saw so many as badly scared
in all our lives. We felt nine shocks
during the night.
We have heard of no casualities in
this part of the county, except one or

Awful Death. The Terrible
Sufferings of a Victim of
Last week we noted the fact of Ma
jor Levi Lybrand's sickness from an
attack of hydrophobia. He died on
the 25th of August, the day of our
going to press. The following ac
count of his suffering and death is ta
ken from the News and Courier, the
same being furnished them by their
Ridge Spring correspondent:
RiDGE SPnING, August 25.-I tele
graphed you to-day of the violent
death of Major Lybrand from hydro
phobia. The first symptoms of the at
tack were felt on Saturday night last.
He was on the streets of our town on
Saturday afternoon, and talked free
ly upon the subject of the primary
election, soon to take place in our
county. He expressed himself as be
ing confident of his own election to
the oflice of county commissioner, for
which he was a candidate. He was ap
parently in the finest health and spir
its. Upon getting home he exerted
himself gathering in fodder in the
heat. Just at night, after this exer
tion, he felt his sickness. He attrib
uted it to over-exertion and heat. He
grew worse during the night. Dr. J.
B. DuBose was sent for early Sunday1
morning and at once pronounced it a
case of rabies. H-e grew worse con
tinuously, being all the time very rest
less, moving most of the time about
the house and yard. He could not,
eat nor drink, frequently making vain
efforts to swallow. He would ask for
water, and upon seeing it would turn
from it or throw it down. He would
sometimes lie down for a short while.
He was perfectly rational until Tuesday
when they found it necessary to con
fine him, which they did by fastening
him up in a room. After this no one
would approach him until he was ex
hausted by weakness. Soon after his
confinement, and more suddenly than
was expected, he took convulsions,
which followed one after another ev
ery five or ten minutes, which very
soon prostrated him so that he could
do no harm, and aid could be render,
ed him. Nothing could be done to
afford him relief. He struggled
through the night until 6 o'clock next
morning (Wednesday) when he die&,
It is strange to say, that, although
he was himself three days, he never
would admit that he had hydropho
bia, and could not be convinced of it.
He always maintained for the past
five months since he was bitten that
he would never have rabies. He was
a man of very great nerve. It is said
that he never knew fear. He was a
gallant soldier in the late war and
was considered very brave. It was
frequently said by many of him that
his fearlessness and high spirits would
ward of the attack and prevent it.
His was an unmistakable case of hy
drophobia.-Journal and Reciew.
THE SUMTERt PRIARY.

primary election, which was held in
