Dudley Eugene Hodge died at his
residence in the Fork sectiou last
Sunday morning, aged exactly sixty
two years, having been born March
24, 1827. Mr. Hodge was a native of
this county. At the age of eighteen
he married Miss Frances A. Harvin,
who, with five children, all grown,
survive him. His wife was a daugh
ter of the late Samuel Harvin, who
was one of the best citizens of the
Mr. Hodge several years ago bad a
light stroke of paralysis, and more
recently (Nov. 24, 18S8) another se
verer stroke of the same disease. This
together with a complication of other
diseases and a general breaking down
of his system resulted in his death.
Mr. Hodge was a member of the
Baptist church, and his funeral was
preached last Monday morning at the
Dudley Baptist church (which, by the
way was named for himr), by his life
long friend, Rev. Henry W. Mahoney.
Mr. Mahoney and Capt. JamesD. Mc

eighty years old, were the oldest per
sons at the funeral. A very large

Mrs. Lenora Bradham, widow of
Abijah R. Bradham, died at the resi

Stukes, last Saturday, March 23rd, in
the seventy-seventh year of her age,
having been born Oct. 10, 1812. She
had been sick only a few days.
Mrs. Bradham had for many years
been a member of the Baptist church,
having been baptized by Rev. H. W.
Mahoney more than fifty years ago.
She leaves one hundred living child
ren: eight children, fifty-four grand
children, and thirty-eight great grand
children. Mrs. Bradham was a re
markably healthy woman, having
probably never had a physician with
her more than two or three times dur
ing her life, and her death was chiefly
the result of old age.

GREE.ZYVILLE, Mar. 23.-The spring
of the year is upon us, but the spring
ing of vegetation is checked by too
much water and cold air. The warm,
bright rays of the suu yesterday and
to-day give promise of a change of
conditions. Change, motion, progress
forwards or 'backwards, to develop
ment or decay, is the rule; periods of
rest the exception. The present is a
time of change, and nothing escapes
The United States wants to annex
Canada, Canada wants to annex the
New England States, and to cap the
climax somebody wants to build a
Court House at Lake City because the
top of the one at Kingstree has been
destroyed by fire. If this is accom
plished another new county will be
in order. Remoteness of inhabitants
from a court of justice is now being
used as an argument in favor of in
creasing the number of houses in
which to hold them. This will be a
good argument with the people living
between Black River and Santee in
the county of Williamsburg. There
are other arguments which may be
properly used. In advocating the
:: naHke Clarendon county (then
a part of Sumter district) a judicial
district, Mr. F. D. Richardson, a mem
ber of the Legislature from Charles
ton, said, "a court house is a public
educational institution," or words to
that effect. Look around you, Mr.
Editor, and behold the proof of the
truth of the declaration. In address
ing a jury in a court house Mr. Rich
ard Dozier said: "Railroads are sym
bols of civilization." In charging a
jury in a court house Judge Shaw de
livered a full and lucid exposition of
the legal term "felony," closing with
the well remembered words, "you
all kow what stealing is." (He was
addressing colored jurors.) The ter
ritory between Black River and San
tee River, within the county of Wil
liamsburg, does not, probably, con
contain the requisite number of square
miles to form a new county. To make
good the deficiency we must borrow
from our neighbors, who, no doubt,
will generously accommodate us.
Berkeley and Georgetown would read
ily give us their portions of the San
tee River and swamp, and the State
her right to a narrow strip of the At
lantic Ocean. This would add a con
siderable number of square miles of
territory, with an abundance of wood
and water for the use of the inhabit
ants, such as fish, sharks, eels, cooters,
gators, crawfish, coons, and pos
sums; besides largely increasing the
food resources, without the slightest
interference in the matter of suffrage.
If the Santee quota should be in
sn.icie nt to complete the required
area, then it might be supplied by
changing the course of the Clarendon
line at a point between St. Marks
church and Dr. S. P. Oliver's, so as to
make it follow the "nighest, highest,
and driest" road to the Florence coun
ty line somewhere in Salem, thus in
cluding a large number of valuable
citizens, and supplying a handle to the
pan, corresponding to the Santee
sprout. True, these citizens would be
a long distance from the new court
house, but they could probably learn
as much in other court houses nearer
Ito them, and it would be some conso
lation to them to know that they were
living in a county built after the
fashion of some Congressional dis

What is Scrofula
It is that Impurity In the blood, which, accumu
ating in the glands of the neck, produces uin
sightly lumps or swellings; which causes painful
running sores on the arms, legs, or feet; whiCh
developes nlcers In the eyes. ears, or nose, often
causing blindness or deafness; whichis the origin
of pimples, cancerous growths, or many other
manifestations usually ascribed to -humors.''
It is a more formidable enemy than consumption
Ior cancer alone, for scrofula combines the worst
posible features of both. Being themiostancl10nt,
it is the most general of aul diseases or affections,
for very few persons are entirely free from it.
How can It be cured ? By taking Hood's sarsa
parilla, which, by the cures it has accomplished,
often when other medicines have failed, has
proven itself tobe a potent and peculiar medicina
for this disease. For all affctions of the blood
Hood's Sarsapariflals unequalled, and some of the
cures it has effected are really wonderful. If you
suffer from scrofula in any of Its various forms,
be sure to give Hood's Sarsaparilla a trial.
