The Wilson and Sumnierton railroad is
not vet completed, but trains are running
over it three times a week. No regular
schedule has yet been armanged, but Mr.
Wilson expects shortly to put on a regular
train for freight and passengers. He offers
to haul guano over his road, to any point on
it, for just fty cents a ton more than the
freight to Maining would be. This will be
an immense saving to the folks along his
line. A railroad is one of the greatest in
sttiitions we have, and after we have once
enjoyed its advantages, we always wonder
how we could have done without one so
long. We congratulate the people along
the Wilson and Suimerton line.
Arson Near Packsville.
Mr. L. S. Barwick, of Packsville, lost two
small barns Tuesday night, Jan. 15th, by
fire. About thirty bushels corn, four hun.
dred pounds fodder, and a thousand pounds
of hay was the los.. Suspicion rested on
Eliza Colclough. a colored womn:, who was
arrested, and at a preliminary hearing last
Friday before Trial Justice Benbow was
bound over for the court of sessions on a
charge of arson. Eliza is by no means an
extensively modest amazon, and at the pre
liminary when she was told by the trial
justice she could say anything in her be
half, but warned to be careful of what she
said, she smilingly informed the justice
that she had been in trial justice's courts
three times before, and knew all the law on
Court House Notes.

Why Dr. Reynolds Left Home.
Our readers remember a short notice in
the TiEs some weeks ago, where the sud
den and unaccountable disappearance of
Dr. W. H. Reynolds was noted; and a week
or two later another notice that Dr. Rey
nolds had returned. We were unable until
last Saturday to get a correct account of the
affair, and as Dr. Reynolds is widely known
throughout the county, we publish it so
that his friends may have a correct version
of the affair. f
Dr. Reynolds for several weeks had been
drinking very hard, until it finally affected
his brain. On Saturday night, Dec. 15th,
while laboring under this mental aberration,
he left his home, not conscious of what he
was doing. He has no recollection-of when
he left home, or how or when he got to a
railroad station; nor could any of his family
by the most diligent search find out where
he had taken the train. All this is yet
wrapped in mystery. He has no recollec
tion of how much money he had with him,
when he left, but it is thought he had about
seventy-five or a hundred dollars. When
first he came to himself he was in the city
of Nashville, Tenn. From this place he
wrote a letter to his family, which was duly
received. He here became acquainted with
somne gentleman, ini!aential in a lirge North
western railroad syndicate, who kindly pre
seated him a free pass c-:er most of the
Noithwstern railroads. When he left
Nashville he does not reraember, but in
this s"ame staite of mind visited Cincinnati,
St. Paul, St. Louis, and other Western cit
IS1 INJURED IN CIcINNfATI.
At Cincinnati he got a severe fall which
resuted in- concussion 'of the spine, lHe
thinks there was a heavy sleet at the time,
and that in getting off the train he slipped,
and fell on a stone. At St. Louis he was
enabled once again to regain his normal
state of mind, probably owing to the severe
pain he was sutfering; or probably because
nature would no longer submit to such a
terrible ordeal. He bad frequently, in his
wild career, written to his family, the let
ters being duly received and answered, but
the answers never reached him, as he did
not wait for a reply. At St. Louis he met
kind friends among strangers, who took him
in charge, furnished him with money, put
him on a Pullman palace car, and started
him homeward, where he safely arrived
about two weeks ago, having been absent
about three weeks. His famnilyj and friends
were delighted to welcome him again, and
Dr. Revnolds himself was piobably the
most rejoiced of all to be again safely re
stored to his loved ones after so perilous
and remarkable a trip. His suffering is
severe, but it is hoped he will soon be well
again, coming and going among us.
No FA fl-V OR FINANCIaL TROUBLE.
Ater his sudden leaving the 'wildest and
vaguest rumors were repeated for facts, and
it would take the entire six page edition of
the TzDIzs to hold the half of them. Suf
ficeth for it to be said, and on the best of
authority, that excessive drinking was the
sole cause of his going. Any rumors as to
fiancial embarrassment, or as to unpleas
at social and family troubles, are denied
by those who know best. Dr. Reynolds,
his wife, and his eh:2r'.fn, form, we arc re
liably told, a most loving, and affectionate
faiy ihnot the shadow of a skeleton

Do such temporary mental aberrations
occur often? Yes. Whiskey is the greatest
curse on the face of the globe,- and is the
fountan head of' three-fourths,. of all sin,
ruin, misery, da'.ixu.tion. A few months
lated to us his experiec, ich was so
similar to Dr'. Rievnolds, . - ,. they almost
coincide. He had been diinking a long
time, left suddenly, and cante to himself as
'he was crossing the Mississippi river, at St.
Louis. With such cases whiskey generally
has little effect on the muscular or nervous
system, but affects the brain. Such mxen may
be, to use an uncouth expression, fool drunk,
even crazy drunk, and yet walk perfectly
straight, without the slightest swagger. Un
less one is well acquainted with such a per
son, it is didicult to tell when he is drunk.
Dr. Revnolds is thus constituted.

Mr. R. F. 'Weeks Visits Orangeburg.
Pcsvn.x S. C., Jan. 1, 1889 -On
Imy return from a business tour through
the hospitable counties of Orangeburg,
Lexington, Barnwell, Aiken, Colleton and
Hampton, I arrived ot the banks of the
majestic Santee at "Buckingham" about
sunrise Xmas eve morn, with horse and
buggy, and~ note in pocket from Capt. H. S.
Cordes, proprietor of the Santee Steamboat
Line, assuring me that "Eutaw" would pass
there during the day. I v'as anxious to re
turn to Clarendon for Christmas, and up to
Ithis tinie felt hopeful, but never were high
er hopes destined to be brought so low. The
old man in charge of the warehouse, as soon
as acquainte.1 with the situation, says:
"Boss, do boat all de gone down to dc city
for Christmas." I read Capt. Cordes' note
to him, he says: "Yes, boss, him de big
capin: him fur'do the big plannin, but de

day with the hope of hearing a steamer,
but none came. Next morning was Christ
mas. The folks in that section were as kind
and hospitable to ne as heart could wish.
They gave me with free good will plenty to
eat and driaek, but having been for many
years a wor'shiper at the shrine of "Terpsi
chore" I deciaad to go down to "Waco" with
the view of eueting an earlier crossing, as
I was one of the main actors in several
"Hops" to be given in Clarendon during
Xmas. Though only fifteen or twenty miles
from home I was a perfect stranger in that
part of the State. I remembered having
met very slightly Mr. Hazard Bardin near
"Pinckney's." In passing his residence I
reined up'at the gate: "IL loa!" Mrs. B. on
the porch. I made some technical excuse
for stopping as will always come to a
"tramp" when hungry and tired. I no
doubt excited the sympathy of the good
lady, for she without hesitation asked me
to '-cose in." I was soon in the hands of
her handsome brother, that prince of good
fellows, Mr. Culpepper Exum, who soon
ushered me into a Christmas dinner. -Oh,
hour of all hours; the most blest upon earth,
blessed hour of our dinners." I will say
right here that the only 1 rl .mI a Friendly
and hungry traveller may take in dropping
in at Mr. and Mrs. Bardin's is the risk of
eating too much turkey, pig, sweetmeats,
fruit cakes, &c. "Waiile memory holds ,a
seat in this distracted globe" I'll ne'er forget
their kindness. Here I met two young la
dies who kindly asked me to a "little sur
prise party" at Mrs. McK's. It proved in
deed quite a pleasant surprise to me, for
right here I met "my party.'' Here "I re
corded in the book and volume of my brain"
friends that shall ne'er be forgotten. After
a most delightful hop I 2cepte I an invita
tion to spend the night with that hospitable
and kind hearted old hero of many a hard
fought battle, (as a member of the 2nd S.
C. Reg.,) Sergt. Roland Moorer, at his ele
gant mansion home in the beautiful and
growing little "yille" of "Parler's." Mr.
Moorer showed me the roll of his old com
pany, "The Brooks Guard, if my memory
serves me arght. On this roll I saw the
name and record of one of my brothers
who volunteered at seventeen, and was
known as the smallest boy in the 2nd Regi
ment. It was gratifying in the extreme to
note his heritage of boyish gallantry. The
next day I went down to the beautiful little
town of "Vance's" where I wired Capt.
Cordes, and was informed that "Eutaw"
would be at Waco Saturday after. I then
engaged board with a very handsome, kind
hearted youn" widow with two charming
daughters. fhis place compared with the
hard bachelor's life that I had been accus
tomed to proved to me a perfect little para
dise. My advice to all travellers on that
side of the Santee is to try and secure board
with Mrs. Thompson at Vance's. I don't
think in all my ramble through life I ever
struck a more mischievous, Moral, hospita
ble, big-hearted, whole-souled lot of young
men than I did at Vance's. On Thursday
I set out accompanied by my newly made
friend, Mr. Selvin Williams, a prosperous,
handsome young merchant of Vance's, to
attend a missionary entertainment given
under the auspices of Mins Nealie Felder,
at Felderville, aided by the young ladies
and good matrons of that charming com
munity. On my ascension to the "Hall"
the battery of bright eyes, beautiful array
of lovely fowers, artistic needle work fash
ioned and presided over by by fair woman
with her noble smiles would have dazzled
the %sthetic eye of a Wilde, or have charm
ed the poetic imagination of a Byron. Here
I fear I met my evil geni ., for while some of
the young men were off some distance at
target practice, Litile Cupid seems to have
mistaken my old heart for a bulls eye, and
pepperedit all day with unremitting cru
elty. I indulged in every amusement from
an effort to pin the donkey's tail on, to
dancing the german with another fellow's
sweetheart. I enjoyed the calisthenics drill
by the young ladies hugely; all did well,
but I shall never forget the elastic step and
exquisite grace of their charming captain,
Miss S., from your city.
"Grace was in her step, lleaven in her
eyg; in ev'ery gesturo dr.gnity and love."
A~t the close of the dri'll dancing ruled the
Here and there threaded the bewitching
mazes of the waltz. On Friday I attended
aother- entertainment given under the aus
pices of the charming Misses Wells near
Vnce' for the purpose of augmenting the
Corinth Baptist Church missionary fund.
I enjoyed this if any thing, more than that
at Felderville, an d it needs as much or more
praise, but I have exhausted my vocabulary
of praises on the other. it proved indeed
a social and financial success. On Satur
day accompanied by my nowc young friend
from Vance's, we met several young ladies,
chaperones and children who had gone down
to see the railroad bridge, river, &c. Mr.
Pregnal, the brndge construction company's
"Boss,'' very kindly furnished us 'with bat
teaus. The day was all that heart could
wish, and right here Clarendon scored one
victory on Orangeburg. I drifted out in
the stream, my boat freighted with one of
the fairest of the fair maidens for which
your county is peculiarly noted, forced the
passage of the piers underneath the railroad
bridge, and leisurely rowed my boat sever
al miles up the river. One or two other
couples started to follow but failed to enter
the passage of the pier. Our drift back to
the bridge was perfectly delightful, in the
middle of the current, basking in the balmy
sunshine of a lovely winter's day, engaged
in "sobial conver'se sweet." Methinks that
if I could effect an arrangment with some
such charming companion to accompany
me on life's journey, I may glide smoothly
down the stream of life, without the ripple
of a single wave on its silvery tide, and be
happy ydt. On Sunday morning I enjoyed
an elegant breakfast with Capt. Adair and
mate Ferguson on the steamer "Eutaw,"
and landed at Wright's Bluff with heart
brim fail of gratitude to the Orangeburgers
for having given me one of the most enjoy
able Christma's s of my life. R. F. W.
