- Our foreman got into trouble last
week, and got it bad. Last Thursday
afternoon, after quitting work, he
went to his room to "primp up" for a
'set up" to his best girL. He was
briskly sharpeningr his razor, so that
it would cut his incipient mustache,
when a slip, and the end of one of his
fingers was split to the bone. It was
the thumb of his right hand, and in
consequence he had to wait for it to
heal up before he could set any more
type. He took ebjarge of the job
press, but while running it Saturday
morning, his thoughts went cantering
off to the sweet smiles and loving
looks of that "best girl," and hie got
his hand caught in the press, mashing
it and injuring it considerably. For
tunately no bones were broken, and
he will soon be himhelf again; and
fortunately for us, his brother, Prof.
J. M. Knight, who is on a visit to
him, is also an experienced typo, and
throwing off' his coat, Prof. Knight
took his brother's place in "stickin' em

that his immediate departure would

furnishes .an undisturbed homefor the
white man and negro woman, who con
tinue to share their earthly posses

member of the grand jury two years

is said, as, that there are three white
women in the same section who are
moral eyesores to their neighbors. In
fa& there are not a few cases of moral
leprosy in this county. Something
ought to be doune in the matter, but
who will move ? They should be re

the place and all the people greatly,
besides there is no doubt but that

a handsome dividend. Summerton
has done well to organize this cotton

Another Cutting Affray.
A serious cutting affray occurred
near Manning yesterday morning, be-;
tween Pedro Meyers and Bland Hayes,
both colored. As well as we can learn I
the particulars, Pedro and Bland were
riding out into the woods, (they are
working at the mills of Harvin Bros.)
when Pedro charged Bland with des
troying a part of his mule's bridle.
Bland admitted the charge, a few*
words and curses passed between
them, when Bland with the butt end,
oawhip struck Pedro three times, on
his head, neck, and arm, the last time
knocking him off his mule. Pedro says
1he then ran, Bland still following and
Istriking him. One blow partially par
alyzed his left arm, but getting out his
knife, he opened the blade with his
,teeth, and wheeling on Bland, cut him.
One cut is just above the heart and
into the left lung, the gash being about
three inches lo~ng. Another cut was im
the forearm. The wound irito the lung1
is a dangerous one, though he may
survive. If he dies, however, it will be
an exception, for Clarendon people
seldom die from such causes. Pedro

is counsel for Mr. Clark. The chargesI
were read and the names of the wit

lerk, John S. Wilson, Esq., to con
luct the examination of the witnesses.
%r. Wilson stated that he knew noth
ing about the case, nor what the wit
aesses would prove. Mr. Galluchat,
who had preferred the charges, then
sked permission to assist, by ques
ioning the witnesses. The Council
lecided that Mr. Wilson was fully able
to conduct the examination without1

the case. All the witnesses were exam

would have been impossible for them

such be the case we then have done

But then the charges we made were

lude that the Town Council is at

A Big 'Wtera Land Syndicate Have
Bought 20,000 acres of Santee Swamp
Lands-The Timber to be Cut and
Messrs Joseph Rathbone and Fran
cis Beidler, the two Western lumber
men who visited Charleston last week
with a view to investing in timber
lands, have returned to Chicago, car
rying with them,'it is said, the titles
to twenty thousand acres of land on
the Santee River. The land purchased
by these gentlemen embraces several
contiguous tracts, notably the Rich
ardson tract, all lying along the San
tee River, near the confluence of the
Congaree and Wateree rivers. They
are wooded lands and contain some of
the finest cypress timber in the coun
The gentleman who was principally
instrumental in inducing Messrs Rath
bone and Beidler to visit Charleston,
said yesterday that he anticipated big
things from their investment.
"They have a big lumber business
in the West," he said, "and ship annu
ally 20,000 car-loads of lumber out of
Chicago. But the vast forests of the
North and West are fast yielding to
the mill and the axman, and the fact
that they will ultimately soon disap
pear altogether has induced them to
look elsewhere for their supplies.
Their attention was attracted to South
Carolina by a clipping from the News
and Courier, which I sent them, giv
ing some idea of our vast virgin for
ests and splendid resources in timber.
They came to Charleston and as the
result of that visit have bought 20,000
acres of land which they propose to
work as soon as the proper time ar
rives. They may work the timber at
first in connection with their Chicago
business, but I am in hopes that they
will ultimately move their entire plant
to South Carolina.
"It was their original intention to
cut the timber, carry it down the San
tee and ship it North from the mouth
of that river. But, after consultation
with Capt. Abbot, the United States
engineer, they found that the river
was not sufficiently opened up or nav
igable for this purpose and will move
it by rail. They will probably also
build an independent line from theft
lands to connect them with the rail
road and do a great deal of ~pioneer
Speaking of the timber resources
of the State, the gentleman said that
land was remarkably cheap. Large
tracts, with virgin forests on them,
could be bought now for 50 cents an
acre. True, they were far removed
from any of the mills and their own
ers had done nothing but pay taxes
on them. But it would not be so al
ways. The disappearance of the North
ern forests would soon drive other pi
oneers South, and these lands will
then be valuable if only for the timber
that is on them.-News and Courier.

At the Academy men were at work
prepaing the 'hall for the dance.
Desks were moved and seats placed
artistically around the hall and on the

to dance could sit comfortably and
look on. About half-past nine in the
evening the building was filled with
Sumter's and Clarendon's most beau

To Cure the Taste for Liquor. -
Yu publisbed to-day a letter of an anony
mous correspondent asking: "Can any one
give me a cure for drunkenness ? I will in
the same way give your correspondent a
cure, through you, if yotgwill publish it.
Indulgence in spirits after a while
which is longer or shorter according to the
constitution of the person-produces irrita
tion,.inlnammation and fever of the stomach,
hence the craving for drink; and the great
er the fever the greater the craving. As
spirits act also on the nervous system and
on the brain, the nervous system becomes
impaired and the brain weakened. Who
can deny that a person ailing in these sev
eral ways is laboring under a serious dis
ease ? He has then no will power to exer
cise, because the seat of his will is in the
nervous centres, and when these are im
paired or destroyed so is also the will pow
Here is the cure: Let the person have
within his reach a small vial of the best
kind of tincture *of Peruvian bark, and
when the craving for liquor comes on him
let him take a teaspoonful of the tincture
every two hours. In a few days the taste
for liquor is destroyed, and destroyed while
indulging in it, for tincture of Peruvian
bark is spirits into which has been drawn
all the substance of P'eruvian bark. It is
to be found in every drug store, but it
should be of the very best.
Peruvian bark is a tonic. It is also the
best, if not the only, cure known for fever.
It is from Peruvian bark that quinine is ex
traed, and, moreover, it is an anti-period
IC. It is by these three agencies that it
destroys the craving for liquor. Any one
wishing to be cured of that ailment can be
in the way I have described, but there are
few drunkards who wish to be cured.-Xin

Montgomery's First Bait'.
MONTGOMERY, August 2.-The first
bale of new cotton was received this
morning and was sold at auction at 10
cents per pound. It was raised by Pey
ton Hall, who has sent in the first bale
for several years. Last year's date was
July 31._ _ _

Don't Take Her Arm Young .uan.
The question is ott:n put. "Whetter it is
ever permissible to take a young luly's arm
in acting as her escort on a prot-nade after
nightfall?" Unhesitatingly and peremptorily,
no. Not after nightfall, nor by daylight, nor
at any other time. An invalid may lean
upon a young woman's arm; a grandfather,
if he is infirm, may avail himself of a sim
ilar support, and a muscular policeman
seems to have acquired the right to propel
his charges in petticoats across the tLor
oughfares by a grasp upon the arm, but
these are the only iale persons so privileged.
For an acquaintance, or a friend, or one
who aspires to a still nearer place, to take
the arm of a young woman when paking
with her on the public highway is inexcus
able. Von may be sure nothing will so
quickly offend her good taste, although she
may lack the social skill to resent and
avoid it. And the spectacle in itself
is almost unpleasing. To see a young
woman pushed along a little in
front of her escort, by his clutch upon her
arm, is neither suitable nor picturesque. It
reverses all preconceived ideas of gallantry.
The fair should lean upon the brave. Virile
strength ought ever to support feminine
frailness. Offer her your arm, young man,
every time and never under a my circum
stances commit the familiarity and offense
of taking hers.
The Different Stages at Which They En
tered the Game.
The Methodists and Baptists have been
the pioneers for a century and carried their
religion into the wilderness and established
civilization. They drove mules and drove
ox wagons and cieared the land, built log
churches, and when everything was sorter
comfortable the Presbyterians came riding
up in their buggies and rockaways and set
tIed among them, and planted out shade
trees and rose bushes and built a church
with a steeple, and set up the Shorter Cate
chism and predestination, and moved
around as though they were the eject. By
and by, when two or three railroads were
built, and the shade trees had all grown up
and the green grass was growing all around
and the streets were macadamized, and an
opera house built, the Episcopolians came
along in apostolic succession, with stately
steps and prayer books and Lent and Mar
di Gras all mixed up together, and they
bobbed up serenely into a fine church with
stained glass windows and assumed to be
the saints for whom the world was made in
six days, and all very good.-Bill Arp, in At
How to be Happy, Though Married.
American girls would hardly relish the
advice given at the time of marriage to
maidens in some parts of the East. When
an Arab damsel gets married her mother
gives her the following advice for securing
her future happiness: "You are leaving
your nest to live with a man with whose
I ways and h-abits you are unfamiliar. I ad
vise you to be his slave if you wish to be
come the absolutL mistress of your hug band.
Be satisfied with little, endeavor to feed

man cross-grained. Be dumb as to his se
crets, d'o not appear gloomy when he is
merry, nor merr-y when he is sad, and Allah
shall bless you."-. ice.
