We heard of a man, yesterday, who voted

act to say the least of it.

The weather has been rather cool the

last week it bad not rained in ten weeks.

It is painful to chronicle the sudden and
violent accident, at Wilson's, last Thursday
afternoon, resulting in the death of Harry
DuPont, the oldest son of our esteemed fel
low citizens, Capt. Jos. H. DuPont. From
the report current we glean the fact, that he
was engaged in hauling from his father's
farm some forage, but before reaching home
the mule became frightened and ran with
the vehicle. The little fellow, about twelve
years of age, is supposed to have been kick
ed in the breast, from the effects of which
he died very soon. These are the solemn
fatalities of life, one moment in the bloom
of youth, health, and promise of long exis
tence, when in a moment the unseen De
stroyer lays low our hopes.
"Don't tell her she is pretty, that bright,
rosy-faced girl with the pink and white
cheks and the little tempting rosebud
mouth." So says a sermonizer in the Oma

girlish innocence as long as possible. How
many girls of the present day seem to have
lost all girlishness and freshness in their
earliest teens; seem even at that age to have
grown tired of empty complimenfA, and to
look upon the world with a wisdom and in
stinct away out of keeping with their years.
To many a bright, intelligent, but injurdi
ciously petted girl the voice of praise and
iattery is qs common as fully expected, and
almost as necessary to her existience as her
daily meals. She inmaginfes all the yonn-g
men of her acquaintance madly in love
with her; her younglady friends wild with
jealousy, an~d with an ever-present conscious

Thrashing a Sneak Thief.
John Ashby Nelson, a colored boy of this
town, was caught last Thursday afternoon
in the act of raising corn, not however by
the time honored method of hoe and plow,
but through the far more expeditious meth
od, from the cart of Mr. George Ridgill,
who had left it only a moment before, go
ing into the store of Mr. Weinberg. On
returning he found one sack gone, and the
boy preparing to make another haul. When
accosted as to the missing grain-feeling
no doubt that it was an event in his life
needing explanation-he replied that the
corn had been taken by him just to see
what he (Mr. Ridgill) would say about it.
Mr. Ridgill appears not to have appreciat.
ed this practical joking, and with horse
whip he fell aboard the darkey and thrash
ed him soundly, only desisting when the
thief burst like a battering ram through
the fence around the lot and escaped.
One-cat-o'-nine-tails is worth all the Stat
ute Laws in the State to punish and pre
vent such acts.
A Convict Killed.
On last Wednesday, one of the convicts at
work in the lower part of the county, on the
new railroad, made a bold dash for sweet
liberty's sake, and was fired upon by the
guard five times. One shot striking a vital
point resulted in his death the following
It is said the convict alluded to expressed
indifference, as to whether he died from a
gun shot wound or the Santee Swamp fe
vers. He made the fatal choice, and has
gathered in the results.
A Bold and Skillful Rider.
On the Fork Road leading to Manning,
and just across Black River, Mr. Tom Cole,
a son of our County Commissioner, T. J.
Cole, while riding a highstrung young mule,
performed quite a feat in horsemanship,
one day last week.
The mule, as we were told, commenced
running and careering with him, and end

Cole held his seat under these trying cir

The election in this place passed off very
quietly and pleasantly yesterday; in fact,
there has been better feeling and less
mud-slinging this campaign than in any
for several years. One man from the coun
try got a little too much of "the crather" in
hand, or rather in head, and a policeman
was about to take him in tow, when he
made a run for liberty. He got on his
horse, and started, but after running a
short distance, he fell off. He did not let
go his horse, however, and before the po- t
iceman cold overtake him, he was up and t
mounted and made a final and successful

Sad and Sadden Deaths-Justico Courts
Fons-roN, Aug. 13.-Last week brought
much sadness and sorrow t3 our usually
buoyant and bright little town. Death has
been in our midst, and claimed as his vic
tim, first the infant son of our esteemed
townsfolk, Mr. and Mrs. W. T. P. Sprott.
and very soon 'after its decease there cam'
a runner to Capt W. R. Coskrey, who was
at Mr. Sprott's, saying that Harry, son 01
Capt. Dupont, had been killed by a mule.
The two were funeralized at the Methodist
church here on Friday at eleven o'clock,
and buried at our cemetery soon af ter, the
Rev. Mr. Porter officiating.
On the same day (Friday) an infant of
Mr. Dick Hodge died, and on Saturday
morning early our Trial Justice was sum
moned to Mr. Gideon Dennis's to hold an
inquest over the body of Morgan Tucker,
who had fallen dead there, at about eleven
o'clock the night before. An inquest was
accordingly held, and from evidence brought
before the jury, it agreed that his death was
providential, he having been attacked by
paralysis, epilepsy, or heart disease. Our
sympathies are with the bereaved.
In the trial justice court last week the
following cases were disposed of: The State
against Mariah Williams, assault and bat
tery, fined $2.50 or ten days. She paid
the fine. The court will convene again to
day, when this case will be disposed of:
The State against Elsie Lewis, assault.
Miss Florence Oliver has returned from a
visit to Summerton.
Mr. H. B. Drose and Family returned
from Florida on Saturday last.
Mrs. J. C. Davis, of Marion, is on a visit

Mrs. Jones, of Lake City, is visiting at
her daughter's, Mrs. J. J. Bragdon.

Maj. D. R. Duncan, of Spartanburg, who
is a candidate for Congress from the Fourth
District, set an example the other day that
not only shows the true grandeur of the
man's character, but one that is worthy the
emulation of all of our public men. At the
Congressional Convention, which met at
Laurens last week, a motion was made
that the nomination be made by primary
election. This was opposed by the dele
gates from Fairfield county, who wanted
the old convention plan continued, and in
hopes of carrying their point they assured
Maj. Duncan's friends from Spartanburg,
Laurens and Union counties that if they
would vote for the convention plan that
Fairfield's eight votes would be given to
Duncan, thus nominating him by a hand
some majority. Because his county had
instructed its delegates to vote for primary,
however, Maj. Duncan would not consider
the proposition for a moment, saying he
would rather be right than be a Congress
man. We say hurrah for Maj. Duncan.
May his kind increase until there will* be
enough of them to fill every office in the
land.-Orangeburg 7Tmes and Democrat.
