A Wonderful Clock.
Mr. G. Alexander is a genius, and
always has some novel and pretty at
traction at his jewelry store. His
last and most wonderful is a clock.
This clock is incased in a most beau
tiful piece of workmanship, represent
ing a Swiss mountain cottage ,of
Dothic architecture. Surrounding
the house is a neat fence inclosing a
Bower garden, and in the garden are
vines and shrubbery against the house.
All is beautifully executed. The
work was done with a small scroll
saw. The material used is mahoga
ny, and is fifteen inches in height,
ten inches wide, and four and a half
inches deep. Mr. Alexander resided
several years in Switzerland, and says
it is an exact imitation of the Swiss
In this case is a small, one-day, le
ver-movement dlock, which not only
strikes the hours of the day, but also
the half hours.
Connected with the works of the
clock is a music box, and every time
the clock strikes (every half hour)
this music box plays one of four pop
ular airs. Mr. Alexander conceived
the idea of connecting this music box
with the running works of the clock,
and originated a very simple connec
tion between them.
The clock is on exhibition at his
store, and Mr. Alexander will take
pleasure in exhibiting.
'The cuckoo clock is also stil en ex
hibition. In this clock a cuckoo ev
ery hour comes out and announces
the hour of the d3ay, and also soun is

CAPTURED BY THE INDIANS.
An Interesting Story of the Life of Mrs.
Brea'Lrt, March 12.-Mrs. Polly
Floyd, of Douglass township, wife of
Mr. Morris H. Floyd, died on vester
day, at an advanced old age. This old
lady bad an eventful history. When
in her teens, she with her parents
moved from this vicinity to the State
of Alabama. At this time she was
engaged to be married to Mr. Floyd,
but it appears her parents objected.
Nevertheless, within a short time after
her arrival at their new home, she se
cretly left her parents, and journeyed
on foot, unaided and alone, back to
South Carolina, occupying more than
a year on the way. A few weeks after
her arrival here she was happily mar
ried to the lover of her choice.
In comi to South Carolina she
was captured by the Cherokee In
dians, then occupying lands in Ala
bama, and lived with them in the fain
ily of the "medicine man" more than
three months, when she was released
by United States soldiers who remov
ed the Indians by force to their res
ervation by virtue of a treaty had
She claimed to have learned their
art of compounding herbs, and prac

was an oracle on dreams, charms, and
witchcraft. She never had any chil

Money scarce and getting scarcer.
We stated last week that Mr. Fur
man Jenkinson, of Panola, had been
attacked about sunset, in the woods
near his home, by a big negro, who
threw him down, with the intent of
robbery or murder, or possibly of
both, and that young Jenkinson had
succeeded in throwing off the negro,
and had cut him on the shoulder with
a razor, upon which the aegro beat a
precipitate retreat. So much of it
was true. But last Tuesday a rumor
reached town that the negro had been
found dead in the woods, the next
morning after the cutting. We
stated the rumor, but at the same
time said we would rot vouch
for its correctness. We have
since been informed that no dead ne
gro has been discovered in that neigh
borhood. It is presumed the cut was
not fatal, and the negro has escaped.
It was a narrow and fortunate escape
for Mr. Jenkinson.

ism in Manning, and we might say in the
county of Clarendon. Although during the
past tifteen years many colored Presbyteri
an churches have been organized and nin
istered to in the neighborimg eounties, yet
there were no churches organized in Clar
endon until a few years ago. Three differ
ent ministers attempted to build in Man
ning, one staying here as long as three
years. Every effort, however, seemed to
prove a failure until the present pastor Rev.
A. E. Torrenee came. He has, since a short
stay here, been instrumental in building a
church valued at about (or will be when
finished) fifteen hundred dollars. The

of the 13st Fairfield Presbytery opened its
session. Rev. M. G. Johnson, of Celumbia.
preached the sermon. The text selected
was "Render unto God the things that belong
to God." The sermon was a good model,
showing from its clear divisions, simple
words, and logical consistency, what a pow-.
er the colored man is for God and the good
of his people when his talents are improved
and used in the right way. Despite the
rain which fell in heavy showers there was
a largo audience each day, and a large
amount of business was dispatched. There
were popular meetings each night: Thurs
day night, woman's work; -Friday night,
missions. Each of these topics were ably
discussed by three speakers each night.
Friday morning's opening session
brought about much anxiety on the part of
many, for it was at this session that one
was to be honored by the Presbytery as a
delegate to the Northern General Assembly,
which meets in New Yor.k city. Although
there were many seeming aspirants our
Manning parson Rev. A. EI. Torrence was
chosen by a large vote. The Presbytery ad
journed to meet at Winnsboro, 13th of Sept.
The Lord's supper was celebrated on Sab
bath. The sermon was preached by Rev.
James Rainey, of R~ock Hill.
A HUNDRED TONS OF MONEY.
It hardly seems possible that the morey
paid in one month for a ten-cent article,
could, if pennies were used in payment,
wihoneh undred tons. Yet one of our
bigh school boys has figured that this is
true of D:amnond Dyes. To judge from the
stocks of our dealers in dye stuffs, Diamond
Dyes own the field of package dyes, and are
a omplete success. Of course they have
imitators. ~"Notaing is a success until im
itated."' But no one wants to risk a coun
terfeit when- th'e genuine can be obtained at!
the same price. Three new colors have
lately been added to the list of Diamond
Dyes: Fast Stocking Black, Turkey Ried!
for Cotton, and Brzown for Cotton. The
manufacturers, Wells, Richardson & Co.,
Burlington, Vt., will send colored samples
of these new dyes, with book of directions,
to any address, free of charge. These ad.
ditions seem to have madec the line so comn
leie that any shade can be matched with
some color ot Diamond Dyes. 'The beauti
ful sample book of shaded colors, lately
sent to all dealersin dyes, will delight the
eye of any La dy. "It's easyv to dye with
Di..mond Dyes." is so absolutely 'rue that
home dyeing is no longer a difficult and

COTTON AND CORN
Better to Plant Corn, but the Farmers
Will Stick to Cot ton.
Witsoxs, Mai ch 18.-I notice in a
recent issue of the Tners your article
giving us farmers some good advice.
I endorse every word in that paper.
You ought to let that matter come out
every week: it is so good and true
that it will bear many repetitions.
But now, Mr. Editor, will we prac
tice it? Won't we jog along in those
same old ruts: all cotton, no corn, no
meat? Oh, but don't we love cotton!
You bet he's king. It would be all
right if we did not require the king
to do so much. He fills his own place
to a T, but the trouble is we not only
require him to clothe us, but we want
hini to feed us. He can't do it; it's
too much of one article. Now the
king will object if we impose on him.
But we should have more considera
tion for him, and help him all we can;
and there are so many ways we can
take this responsibility away from
Well, let us name a few: Plant
corn, work it as well as we do cotton,
don't neglect it, deal fairly with it,
and it will do much for us. Fact is,
if we do right by him, he will give us
meat as well as bread. Let us not
forget the potato crop, the iice, the
pea, and the sugar cane. If we will
give attention to this we will soon
quit eating our cotton up before it's

stomach, creates an appetite, promotes healthy

"I have been troubled with dyspepsia. I had
but little appetite, and what I did eat distressed
me, or did me little good. In an hour after eating
I would experience a faintness or tired, all-gno
feeling, as though I had not eaten atything.
Hood's Sarsaparilla did me an immense amenas
