No mishaps of season or vicissitudes

They swing in at the appointed

We desire to call the attention of:
our readers to the fine stock of watch
es, jewelry, and other such goods,
kept by Mr. G. Alexander, in the store I
next to the Tnms office. Mr. Alexan

pert watch repairer, and of selling
goods at low figures. His store is
neatly fitted up.
The Town Council has a force of
hands now employed on the streets,
cutting and carrying away the rank
weeds and tall grass over-runmng
the sidewalks. It would prove a de

good regulations, could some plan be
devised to keep this noxious growth
always under subjection.
Now is the time to have your watch
es, clocks, and jewelry fixed. Carry it
to Gustave Alexander. All work
warranted. In a few days I will re
ceive 100 clocks, which I will offer to
the public at 95 cents a piece. A fine
line of jewelry, watches, clocks, speec
tacles, eyeglasses, silverware, at re
markably low prices. Give me a call.
I have everything in the jewelry line.
The recent rains left behind them a
snap of delightfully cool and bracing

others likewise employed at that1
pace. Iti aid that there were fifty-1

in charge of two of the penitentiary

the precision of drilled soldiers on

The number of mishaps, many of
them resulting in death, is far ahead
of anything of the kind in the peace
annals of this county. It can, how
ever, hardly be attributed to any in
creased carelessness, or reckless dis
regard for life and limb. The quan
tity of machinery applied to the
many enterprises of the day is much
more abundant than ever before
known amongst us; and a large sup
ply of men is necessary to run them.
While the danger never grows less,
those employed around become ae
custumed to the peril in which they
stand, and hence, the very frequent
destruction of life or frightful injur

Berry Taylor, colored, while engaged last
Friday on a bear hunt in Santee Swamp,
was accidentally and fatally shot by Buel
Dukes, another colored man. A party of
!hirteen, three white and ten colored men,
were on this hunt. Taylor had' been sta
tioned at a particular stand with instruc
tions to stay ihere. For some reason, how
ever, he left his stand, and incautiously ap
proached the place where Dukes was, who,
at the time, being on the lookout for a bear,
and hearing the noise and seeing the canes
moving, without waiting for a closer inspec
tion fired at the supposed bear, and with
deadly aim, Taylor receiving the load of
buck shot in his head and shoulders. His
brains were largely shot out, but he lived
for twelve hours, and gave, during the time,
several evidences of consciousness.
Coroner Cochran held an inquest Satur
lay, and the jury returned a verdict in ac
oordanee with the above facts. The body
was then turned over to a delegation of col

to Manning Sunday, and buried it with the
honors of that society.
Tailor lived in and around Manning sev

honest, respectful, and inustrious colored

Sprott Guard Dinner.
Last Thursday the Sprott Guard survivors
.ssembled at their us'nal festive grounds at
runeville, to enjoy a bountiful repast, and
mee again to enact in social converse the

hose sacred fountains of the heart memo

It was good to be there and talk of times
vhen men and women were tried in the ter
ible crucible of those days, when trial and
;uffering, privation and want yielded the
>ure ore of God-like virtues and Spartan

f those, who are resting far away in the
'bivouac of the dead"on lonely battle fields.

riendly intercourse was once so common
unong us, but now almost entirely dead in

To Patrons of the Manning Academy.
The principals of the Manning Academy
will this year adopt several new features in
the Academy. O-e of these will be, except
where special instructions are given to the
contrary, to abolish corporal punishment.
When a student is too refractory to avoid
such punishment, he will be suspended
from school; and when he fails to study
sufficiently to keep up with his class, he
will, after due warning and notice to him
self and parents, be put back into a lower
class. As heretofore every effort will be
made to advance the student, consistent
with thoroughness. No student will be al
lowed to graduate and given a diploma un
til he has satisfactorily completed the course
of study. The Academy is for both sexes.
The Eutawville Railroad Company again
seems to have made an active movement in
pushing the road. It is said they have
now employed over one hundred and
twenty convict hands, and that they are
grading the bed up to or very near the

boom ato the Santee people in the way of
freights, having the choice between river
and rail shipments.
Rilled by a Tree.
On Tuesday last Riley King, a colored
man in the employment of Mr. Howard
Muldrow, while going to his work, on Mr.
Wilson's railroad, lay sleeping, with his
head reclining upon a s9ck of corn. While
lying there a dead tree fell across the car
on which he was riding, and cut the sack
of corn in half. But strange to say he suf
fered no injury. Still it was. to- be a day
of doom for him in this line. He proceed
ed to his place of work, and before the day
was out, while cutting cross ties, a tree or
a limb from a falling tree, struck him and
killed him. These were, indeed, a singular
combination of accidents to befall any one
in so short a time. And it would seem as
though the very narrow escape of the morn
ing, while on the railroad, would have
been sufficient warning to place him on the
lookout for the remainder of the day.

Almost an Accieent.
The trains that pass over the Central Rail
oad1 are unusually free from accidents, but
there came near being a big one two weeks
ago. The north bound morning train was
running in two sections. The south bound
express met and passed at this place the
first section of the north bound train,
which was the excursion train. It then
-went on its yay at its usual speed, about
forty-five miles an hour. The south bound
mail was behind, twenty minutes late, and
thundering on at about a mile a minute.
There is on each side of Wilson's a hill and
beyond each hill a valley, Wilson's also
being in a valley, so we are told. Each
train was mounting the hill, and in a few
minutes would be descending the grade.
Just in the nick of time, a telegram reach
ed Wilson's to stop the trains. - The watch
man barely had time to snatch up his red
fiag, when both trains were in sight. But
the air brakes were applied, levers reversed,
and though running down grade, the trains
were stopped, only a few feet from each
other. It was a close shave. We learn
that the engineer and conductor on the
south bound train were considered in fault,
and removed from their positions.

During the night he attempted some undue
