Mr. and Mrs. Sinclair Brunson, of Sum
merton, were in town Friday. Mr. Brun
son reports a part of the cotton so much
damaged in his section as to bring less than

some fields on account of the failure of
farmers to procure hands to gather it.

After it was definitely known last Friday
night that the judicial deadlock would at
the next ballot be broken, the suspense was
very great. The name of H. L. McLauren,
of the Sumter delegation, was the first call
ed. When afterpsome preliminary remarks,
he slowly enunciated John S. Wilson the
enthusism ran high. Hats and coats were
thrown in the air, and order was not thought
of. When the Sumter delegation finished
voting, it is said the chairman, Mortimer]
Ward, of Georgetown, was up with one
hand swinging his hat and hurrahing for
Wilson, while with the other he was en
deavoring to rap the convention to order !
Secretary Bonham, it is said, was so excited
that he forgot to call the other delegates'
names, but jamming the roll into his pock

John A. Burgess died at his residence in
this plcMonday morning, Oct. 15th, af
tera logillness, involving troubles of the
heart. M.Burgess during a large part of
his life was a great sufferer, and his death,
though a sad blow to his devoted family
and many friends, was to him a happy re
lease from his sufierings. He was, and for
many years had been, a member of the
Presbyterian church, and was a gentleman
of high toned principles. Mr. Burgess will
be missed from our midst.
Mr. Burgess was born Feb. 10, 1832.
A Colored John Sullivan.
An unruly negro named Tom Petrell, or
some such name, from Mayesville or Wil
son's mill, created a considerable stir in
town last Monday. He had enough liquor
in him to make him think he owned the
town, and when an attempt was made to ar
rest him he resisted so that four men could
not manage him. He was tied hog fashion,
and carried to the guard house. His cure
ings there were so loud and vile that he
was bucked and gagged. This quieted him,
and he begged good fashion. During his
arresthe attempted to use a pistol, but was
disarmed. He also had an extra supply of
cartridges in his pocket. While being car
ried to the guard house he claimed to be a
Deocrat, and that the other negroes want
ed to kill him for it; and he said he had no
friends in town. A bystander told him,
even if he was a Democrat he could not
raise - in this town. Council gave him
$10 or 7days. He wisely took the 7; and
will then be held for carrying concealed
weapons, for which he will probably spend
six months in the State's Hotel.

You editors judge the bulk of the cotton
crop in our county from the number of
bales on your streets after a week's good
picking weather, or no doubt from the en
couraging statements of your merchants,
gleaned from their customers whose aim
is to support their demands for supplies,
by their encouraging reports of cotton still
in the fields.
We have had experience in harvesting
cotton crops, and tho' not at all interested
in the fleecy staple at this time, are contin
ually riding a large portion of the finest
cotton lands in the N. W. section of the
county, and consider the crops fearfully
short. The fields are fast assuming a dark,
picked-out appearance, and the cotton pick
ing season of 1888 will soon be ended. The
little darkey will then have to fall back on
'simmons, 'possums, and 'tatoes.
