Last Sabbath evening, while the
different congregations were engaged
in worship, suddenly and not far from
the Court House square there burst
upon the still night air the oft-repeat
ed blasts of some instrument, that
sounded very much like a fox-hunter's
horn calling to dogs; and the dogs
all over town, especially those of thg
hound persuasion, responded in an
swering howls. This wanton disre
gard of the sanctity of the day ar
gues badly for some one. Even
though he may have no religious
scrupleshimseif, he ought to respect
the opinions of others.

There appears to be wide spread
alarm on the part of our farmers, in
consequence of the damage done to
the cotton already opened and to the
partially opened bolls, during the
recent terrific storms of rain that al
most every day for two weeks or
more deluged the whole country. The
open cotton, in many instances, as we
stated last week, presents the unusu
al and almost unheard of spectacle of
the seed sprouting in the lint while
still upon the stalks. In some in
stances these cotton sprouts are two
inches high and contain two leaves.
The outlook is far from being cheer
ful and promising.
Another Road Trouble in Salem.
Last Tuesday, Sep. 11th, the
Board of County Commissioners
held a meeting in Motts Town
ship, in Salem, to take in the
full merits of a new public road,
recently granted by the Board. The
aforesaid road, though only a mile in
length, has been a bone of great con
tention, and threatens to be the fruit
ful source of more to come. The reg
ulai~ petition was duly handed in, and
all the necessary steps taken for open
ing the road, when some of the par
ties lhving near the road came over,
and after inspecting the signatures,
pronouncedI some of thern forgerier.
There being so much feeling in the
matter, and a counter-petition largely
signed, and placed on fle in the Coin
niioners' office, by many whose
names appeared upon the original
paper, it was deemed necessary to
overlook the grounds, and take testi
mony, before any further action was
The two sides for and against the
road, are said to be up to fever heat;
and trouble may rise from it yet.

was heard. The buggy had collided with
a tree, ad at the same time had upset a
bee hive in the yard. The queen and her
subjects flew to arm?s, and resented the in
tusion, by opening a vigorous battle. The
horse kickied and gro'ined, but he was en

spicy News from Greeleyville.
GEImmLE, Sept. 14.-After a
few days' sunshine another heavy rain
to-day from the south. The late
cloudy and rainy weather of two
weeks' duration has seriously injured
cotton and some late provision crops,
while upland rice though well grown
and fully headed out is found almost
entirely without grain, owing it is
supposed to want of sufficient moist
ure at the right time. In other por
tions of the country cyclones and
overfows, and in New England frost,
have been perhaps more destructive.
The primary election of the 8th
inst. resulted in continuing in office
two out of three members of the Leg
islature, and five out of ten county
officers. With us the primary is a
simpler process than with you. The
white voter is not required to have
his name on a club list. If he is
qualified to vote at the general elec
tion, and is a consistent Democrat,
no more is required. Candidates are
assessed for campaign purposes, and
they are notified that the names of
those who.pay will be found on a list
at the voting places. When the votes
are counted and aggregated the can
didate having the greatest number is
dechrcd no:minated. and there's an
end of it
George . Greeley, of Boston, has

He is writing up the geneaiogy of thie
Greeley fatily, and designs adding a
ch'.oter on the to.ns in the United
States having this name. Thus an
other link will be added to Williams
burg's historic chain.
Recently a festival was held in the
new depot here, and a handsome sum
of money realized, which will be ap
plied to improvements on the Mount
Hope Baptist Church. But for the
rain interfering, doubtless much more
would have been realized.

What Does it Mean I
Wnsoss, Sept. 17.-The writer was
met this morning by a young man of
our community who seemed to be
greatly troubled. Upon asking why
he was in this condition he gave us
the following account of his troubles.
Says he, "Our cook's sister's mother's
daughter has eloped with one of the
young men from Mallett's, and I was
waited upon this morning by a young
brother of of the bride-elect, and in
formed that we would have to do the
best we could for breakfast. This, of
course, was an exciting bit of news.
Upon inquiry later we were fortunate
enough to obtain an interview with
the groom, and from him got the fol
lowing history of the affair: "Boss,
youner know how it am wid we. We
not so fortinit as youner. Youner all
haemny fer git marry on, and
yonrgtmarry and have big time.
When we have to git we gal we do
de best we kin do, 'specially when de
al's muddler conjects to de disunion.
oss, dats de way wid we, we -git de
notion in we hed dat we git marry
any how so I take 'him fer ter walk
Sunday ebenin and me and him walks
right up to Mannings and der we get
der~ rebbern ter marry we right dere.
Boss youner ought to hear how him
mudder rare round, she sware she
gine fer kill we both if we come
back 'specially me. But boss we
gine ter go to Georgia wid Capt.
Mellett, den him mudder can't git up
wid him. Now boss der freight train
am comin and I promise him I go up
on de freight and we go right on ter
Georgia." As the train pulled off the
darkey who is known as "Dutch~
stood on the rear of the coach, and
shouted to his friends, "I go up and
git him and we go ter Georgia den
him mudder can do as him please."M
So ended the interview, and your
orrespondent was about to return to
his home, thinking that the intereste
ing topics of the day had been diae
cussed and that there was nothing
more for his ears when he was some

master was selling postal cards at the

Our Bethlehem correspondent,
writes us, under date of Sep. 5th:
I have investigated the reported
hanging by Kl Klux in Salem of one
Ben Brand, alias Ben Evans, recently
reported in the Tams, and find there
is no truth whatever in it. Brand or
rather Evans was publicly whipped
in the day time by a party of unmask
ed citizens, white and colored, and or
dered-to leave the'county for grossly
insulting a married ..hite woman.
He left, and I am reliably informed is

Wash the Dishrag.
We clip the following from Good House
ceeping, and commend it to our readers:
Now that diseases are known to be
caused by germs, one is' dtr the lookout for
death in almost anything. Even a dish
cloth may generate the germs that cause
sickness and death. If it is black and
stif and sour, throw it into the fire. Keep
your dishclothdceau, if you have to eat with
'out a tablecloth, do withoat curtains to your
windows and cake for~ y~difte, and have to.
let your face dry after~waihing it. Let the
weedsgrow in your - afdeni~ let the holes
in the-heels of your- h'sbatd's or -hilreh's
hose go undarned, let the' oes go without
blacking for Sunday, if 'necessary, but do
not ngee to wash the dishcloth.
A tid housekeeper writes: "Ihave smell

she, 'there were about a dozen here this

on the mantle piece. and felt in the cup
