A Problem in Arithmetic.
Here is a problem in arithmetic, which
some of our young friends may try to solve
during the holidays. We shall be pleased
to receive answers to the same:
A and B together buy 100 acres of land,
each paying two hundred and fifty dollars.
A says to B if you give me my choice of
land I will pay 75 cents more per acre.
How much land does each one get and what
do they pay per acre?
Incendiary Fire in Salem.
BEr Dm=, Dec. 9.-On the night of the
8th inst., the dwelling and out houses on
the Samson Parker place in Motts town
ship, now owned by Mr. David Coker, of
Williamsburg county, was burned with their
contents. It was clearly the work of an in
cendiary. A family by the name of Wick
son resided in the dwelling house, but were
absent ,om home at the time. They lost
all their clothin, furniture, and provis
ions, and are really in a destitute condition.
It is to be hoped that this fire fiend may be

Willie, his younger brother, was also con

on suspicion in this place last Wednesday,
but he had none of the money on his per

spring by his father for some of his bad

is only about twenty-one years. old. His.

Attempt to Burglarize the Treasury.
An attempt was made last Sunday night
to rob the county treasurer's safe, but with.

An effort was made to go in by the treasur
er's door. A ey was broken off in an old
oc onthe door, and a hole was cut
truhthe door, but it seemns as if they
gave up this plan and tried the clerk's door.
This door was forced open, and then a hole
Icut through the chimney between the two
offices :nto the treasurer s office. The bur
~glars then crawled through this hole, and
tried to open the safe by the combination.
But they didn't know it, and though the
signs are that the worked at the combina
tion long and laoously, yet they eould
not get the doer open. Finally they gave
up the business as a bad job, and left the
two offices intact, except as to the broken
doors. It is evident that it was a bungling
'job, and by greenhorns at the safe-cracking
businesa. No force was attempted, and the
men trying to open the safe must have
thought they knew the combination of the
Sunday night was just the night for such
work, dark and raining. A row in another
partof the town was calculated, too, to facili
tate the robbery. But the would-be burgiats
had failed to catch the combination, and
conseqently failed to get the ten or fifteen
thousand dollars they coveted.
Such a bungling affair will in all proba
bility come to light, and we expc our

Thieves at Jordan.
- Last Sunday night the store of Mr. H.
T. Avant, at Jordan, was broken into by
Philip Brunson and J;ohn Davis, both col
ored. No one was in the store at the time.
Philip went into the store and left John
outside to watch. While they were robbing
te store Mr. Frank Avant and a friend re
turned about midnight. Mr. Frank Avant
went in at a doer of the store, and Philip
went out a window. Search was instituted
for the thieves, and about daylight Mr.
Avant succeeded, by tracks, in finding
P~hilip in an old house near. Louis John
son's. Philip was asleep, and uIpon .being
arrested confessed his guilt, and also impli
cated John Davis. After he was caught he
was tied, and Mr. Young placed in guard over
him. Watching his chance Philip attempted
to give leg bail,-but after a chase of two hun
dred yards he was caught and then brought
to Manning and placed in jail. Philip has
served a term in the penitentiary, and un
less Jailer Strange is mighty careful our old
rickety jail will not hold him till February.

Ben, a colored dude hailing from the city
of oreston, luts recently been making love
to one of the colored beauties of Panola.
Ben's attentions were viewed with great fa

rather than to have to own a lord and mas

to his Juliet one night last week, and he
and the Juliet's mother insisted on a union
of hands and a blending of hearts at once.
