"funny lawyer." His sallies of wit and

Court House Notes.
The Sheriff and Treasurer and
Auditor and Trial Justices are laying
their plans to swoop down on the
defaulting tax payer, and the fellow
who is laboring under the delusion
that there is no law whereby he can
be made to pay his poll tax may very
shortly find there is. And in case he
does not see fit to pay, or cannot pay,
his poll tax and the accrued costs, he
will be given thirty days to meditate
thereon in the county pigeon house.

him for room to be more than he can

That Corn Prize.
Mr. John Thames, of this place, ex
pects to enter the race for the $1,000
corn prize. Hle has withink the cor
porate limits of the town, some of the
finest corn land in the State. Last
year he made seventy-five bushels corn
to the acre, and the year before eighty
five, and he used no fctilizers at all
He is a young man, hardly grown yet,
but is one of the best corn farmers in
the State. He feels pretty confident
he. can win the prize.
Mr. R. Rt Hudgins, of Foreston, so
we are informed, is making all prepar
'ations to win the prize for Foreston.
He will plant to make more than two
hundred bushels corn to the acre. Mr.
Hudgins is a good farmer, and has
made some fine corn about Foreston.
We suppose others of Clarendon
will also contend for this prize, and
we hope some one of our farmers will
succeed in winning it.

Work, Work, Work with a Will.
Wn.soss, March 4.-As for news we can't
serape up any that would be of interest to
your readers. The weather has been so
very severe the past week that we could not
stir out to get newr., and weguess our neigh
Ibor are about in the same fix, for very few
of them came our way.
We note in a recent issue of the Tas
Da.e -ur.rt,.'e ,-1 n havxe come to the
conclusion that Dave did in that as a good
many other things he says, hit the nail
square on the bead, when he says this is a
great big world of push, and needs lots of
pluck and perseverance to pull out of the
ruts of conceit, laziness, and carelessness,
that a good many of us have fallen into
since the war. The fact is we are about to
be swallowed up in them.
This being ashamed of honest work and
trying to live on our noble ancestry won't
do. Now I am not using Dave's words but
I am striking at his conclusions. But then
we old timers are about buried in the past.
We like to sit and bemoan our lost past
greatness; we live in the past. There is
no bread or butter in that, yet we can't real
ize it: we cling to it as we do to our lives.
Let us get out of the old ruts, and let us
take Dave's advice, my old companions in
laziness. Let us pull -off our coats, roll up
our sleeves, and show our manhood by our
works and not in idle boasting of our past
greatness, we will then be better prepared
to live independently the balance of our few
days on earth, and a brighter hope of a bet
ter world when this short life is over. Our
children will love us more,-but enough.
IT IS A CURIOUS FACT
That the body is now more susceptible to
benefit from medicine than at any other
season. Hence the importance of taking
Hood's Sarsaparilla now, when it will do
you the most good. It is really wonderful
for purifying and enriching the blood, creat

to the whole system. Be sure to get Hood's
Sarsaparilla, which is peculiar to itself.

AN OLD COUNTRY TAVERN.
The Tom Davis Place in Upper Claren
don-How People Used to Drink and
Fight there-The Lonesome Appear
ance of the Old House.
Those who have traveled on the Charles
ton public road, which joins the George=
town road in Privateer Townbtip, will re-.
member a small, solitary and decayed old
plank house. (locally known as the Tom Da
vis place) which stands a short distance
below the Sumter and Clarendon County
line, and on the left side of the road as you
go down into Clarendon. Those wuo have
the curiosity to examine this abandoned
old building, will find that it consists of
what was once two rooms and a loft. It is
sitrated in a quiet, lonesome piece of coun
try and has such a deserted, sad appearance,
that several persons who have passed by it,
have mentally re,.aarked: "What a horribly
lonesone looking old house."
This building is an interesting relic of
the past. in an old work-Robert Mill's
Atlas of South Carolina-we have a large
map of -Sumter District," which comprised
what now constitutes Sumter and Clarendon,
also a part of the new county of Florence.
This map was made from a survey
of 1821, and on it we find "Ben
Evans's Tavern." By inquiry I
learned that the old Davis house was the
Evans tavern. I have talked with several
old people about this house, and from what
I can learn, I suppose that it (or a portion
of it) is eighty or a hundred years old.
Ben Evans was a hatter by trade who lived
here and from him it was called "Evans's
Tavern.' A woman kept the tavern, which
(to use the language ox an old citiven of
Privateer Township) was not a hotel, just "a
groggery." It appears to have been a row
dy place. People would gather here and
engage in the pastime of drinking and light
ing. In the fights, the participants used
nature's weapons-their fists. In those ear
ly times, when there were no railroads,
doubtless numbers of people passed by this
tavern, as they were going to or coming from
Charleston, and probably a good many of
them used to stop here "to get a drink."
After the house ceased to be tavern, a man
named Tom Davis lived -here for a while
and from him it received its pr esent name.
Whiit a change has come over this old
house; when a tavern it seems to have been
a very noisy and lively place, but now it is
a deserted old building, remarkable only
for its aged and lonesomie appearance. The
chimney at one end has disappeared; there
are several windows, but with one excep
tion, the shutters are gone from them and
the house itself is settling on the ground.
This venerable building suggests to us an
interesting fact-the people 01 our .day are
more temperate than they were in those
early times; an old lady talking to the writ
er about this tavern, said: "Whiskey selling
was common then." Mills, in his "Statistics
of South Carolina" (I quote from memory)
says these taverns were common in Sumter
District and were bad places, but in our
times, country taverns in this portion of
South Carolinia and pr'obablf troughout the
entire State, are thii.'gs of the past. Public
sentiment would hardly allow a rowdy road
side tavern, such as the Evans tavern was,
to exist now. McDomnL- F'UnR.'f

West Virginia Has Three Governers.
PrrrsBUBG, Pa., March 4.-A special from
Charleston, W. Va., says that Gen. Gpfi, the
Republican candidate for Governor and
claimant to the office, took the oath in one
of the rooms of the State House set apart
for the use of the Governor.
About the same -time, in another apart
ment, President Carr, of the Senate, also
took upon himself the prescribed oath and
was empowered to transact the business of
the office, while in his private office E. W.
Wilson who had filled the position for the
past four years, continued in form at least
to discharge the duties, while in and about
the State House there was gathered a tre
mendous crowd of people about equally di
vided between the two political parties.
About 12.30 o'clock Gen. Goff and sever

who was also surrounded by a number of
Gen. Goff mounted a chair and addressed
the crowd which had assembled in the room,
He claimed that he had received a clear ma
jority of votes, and charged Speaker Woods,
of ttie Hogse of Delegates, with having
failed in the performance of his constitu
tional duties in not declaring tLe result. He
then demanded the office of Wilson, but was
refused. Carr made a similar demand with
like result, and thus the matter stands.
