The Clarendon Agricultural Society will
meet on the first Monday in March.

don circuit ill be held at New Zion church,

Mr. Arthur M. Skipper, of McClellans
vile, Berkeley county, matriculated at the
Manning Academy last week.
A circular has just been issued and sent
to ever] colored ministerin South Carolina,
asking for contributions for the defense of
the colored lynchers in Pickens.
In Anderson county some days ago, a ne
gro while cutting down a large pine discov
ered in the centre a live bat, which, judging
from the rings around the cavity in which it
was found, is supposed to ha' been en
toombed there about seventy years.
Mrs. Mary M. Jayroe, wife of Mr. Peter
W. Jayroe, died at her home near Manning,
last Saturday, aged thirty-seven years. Mrs.
Jayroe was an estimable lady, a member of
the Baptist church of this place. She leaves
a husband and six children, the youngest
being but two years old.
William B. Carpenter, Sr., one of the
oldest citizens of this county, died at his
borne near Manning, last Mednesday, in
the seventy-eighth year of his age. He had
been in feeble health for a long time. and
a recent attack of dysentery so weakened
him that he never rallied. Mr. Carpenter
leaves a rife, and several children, all of
whom are grown, to mourn his death.
Mr. James B. Davis, Clerk of Court, re
quests usto state he has received blank ap
plications for widow's pensions. Also, that
those parties who have already sent pension
applications forward, will have to fix up a
schedule of their property before the ap
plications will be acted on. All persons in
terested in pensions should call and see
, Mr. H. B. Lee informs us that the house
of Lester Singletary, which was burned a
month together with his six children,
was not ocked at the time. He says that
Singletary had just bought alotof groceries,
and thinks they were stolen, the children
killed, and the house then set on fire. Sin
gletary and his wife were at church, about a
quarterof a mile of at the time.
Mrs. Bosina Mackey has entered two suits
iffWashingo against Ex-Judge Thomas
Jefeson ' e, her gay, dehinquent hus
band. In the first she asks for a divorce
on the ground of his desertion of her, and
in the other she seeks to have certain Wash
ingtoa property, .held in her husband's
name, but which was bought with the pro
eseds of her South Carolina property, trans
ferred to her.
We call the attention of those having cap
ital for investment, to the advertisement
of Joseph F. Rhame, Eq., in this issue of
the Tixus. Mr. Rhame informs us that
ao company which he represents owns
lands in, and in the vicinity of, some sixty
towns in the State of Florida, among which
is the city of Palatka, the lre towns of
Guinsville and Ocala, and te town of
Brooksvinle. The lands offered for sale comn
pris-somfe of the finest .orange, cotton,
earn, and sugar..cane lands in the State.
Some persons have reflected on us be
eanse we failed to publish notices of deaths
and marriages in their families. This is
unjust. We always make such notices
when we can get the facts, but when we
fail to hear of a death or marriage, or if we
hear of either and cannot learn names,
dates, &c., we are not censurable if no no
tics be made. It would trouble parties but
little to send such information to this office,
and proper notices would always be made.
Governor Richardson is .preparing to
transform the heretofore unsightly grounds
in front of the Governor's Mansion into a
.retty lawn. Yesterday a mule, plow, and
arey, engaged in reducing this land to a
mellow state, nearly came to grief. In the
day when the mansion was an arsenal a
wel in the yard had been ecvered with thin
boards, which were'in turn covered with
earth, and the location of the well obliterat

but fortunately kept himself from going to

Entertainment at Panola.
A correspondent at Panola writes us:
The citizens of this county will be offered
a rare literary treat at the Panola Academy
on Friday evening March 2nd, by that dis
tiguished lecturer, the Rev. John Ker
shaw, who on that occasion will deliver his
great lecture on "Character and Character

F. P. Herrington, white, aggravated as
sault and battery, $100 fine, or three months
in the county jail.

the criminal court was then adjourned.
GRAND JURYB PEESENTMENT.
The Grand Jury beg to present that we
have acted on all the bills presented by the
Solicitor at this term of the Court.
Two of the Trial Justices presented their
books for examination, viz : John S. Wilson
and J. W. Fleming. These we found cor
rect and neatly kept.
A committee of the grand jury visited and
examined the jail, and find it properly kept;
but would recommend the placing of a sub
stantial door at the head of the staircase. We
would further recommend that a new cook
ing stove be furnished.
A committee also visited the poor farm,
and find thirteen inmates, all white, and we
think deserve the aid of the county, and
they make no complaint against Superin
tendent or Physician in charge. We would
recommend that some clothing be furnished
a few who seemed to be qnite destitute.
We be leave to present the roads in bad
condition, and recommend that the County
Commissioners give the same immediate at
tention, and have them staked off the prop
er width, as complaint has been made to us
that parties in different parts of the county
are planting so much of the public road that
two vehicles meeting cannot pass each oth
We recommend that your honor appoint
H. C. Carrigan, N. B. Barrow, and D. R.

The platform of the Democratic
party in 1884, adopted in Chicago,
and upon which Mr. Cleveland was
elected, declared that "the system of
direct taxation known as the 'intern
al revenue' is a war tax, and so long
as the tax continues, the money de
rived therefrom should be sacredly
devoted to the relief of the people
from the remaining burdens of the
war." Those who know have no
doubt that the meaning was to retain
the tax as long as the war debts and

W E DESIRE ESPECIALLY TO URGE UPON PARENTS AND'
Guardians the great importance of having their children at school
promptly the first day. The student who enters late labors under serious
disadvantages, and seldom takes that stand in his class that otherwise he
would have taken.
The Principal feels much encouraged at the hearty support given the
school heretofore, and promises renewed efforts to make the school what it
should be-FIRST CLASS in every respect.
