The diamond and pearl necklace
worn on State occasions by Mrs. Cor
nelius Vanderbilt has excited the
greatest wonder and admiration.
The striking feature of this necklace
is that the diamonds are pierced
through the center and are strung al
ternatly with the pearls. It is said
that it required many weeks of patient
-labor to pierce each stone.
Itmsa curious and striking coinci-j

Race Trouble in Salem.

Sbetween the whites and negroes oc-.

a fight would occur, in which case it

-It seems that two weeks ago a dog
of Mr. T. J. Gibbons strayed on Har

atHerring shot the dog, killing it.
efollowing Monday night (Dec. 16)
erl of masked men visited Hlar
~dy, and-.gave him a severe whipping.
Herring thereupon swore out a war
hat against JMessrs. Mack Beard, Bil-!
bbnWiley Barrow, and J. W.
'~laging them with the of
fense. The case was to have been
heard last Monday before Trial Jus-,
-tice Fleming, but when the day arriv-,
ed, the negroes had worked themselves
up to a red hot heat, and having made'
numerous threats, the white people
likewise gathered, about a hundred
strong, and both sides armed for a!
fight. Hot blood existed, and very
little would have precipitated the row.
The white men arrested are said to be
the wrong party, and they could have
easily proven their innocence, bat1
owing to the high state of excitement
it was thor'ght best for them to waive
apreliminary examination, and to give
bond for trial at the higher court.
This was unexpected to the negroes,
who regarded the waiving of the pre
liminary and the bond, as tantamount
to an acquittal. This was about 2

for beating one of our race into a!
mummf." This speech was' seconded
by Charles Kennedy and Ransom:
Gamble and a hundred others.
Mr. W. H. H. Hobbs at this junc
ture left for Manning, to get a warrant
of arrest for the ring leaders. A war- :
rant was issued Monday night, and,
placed in the hands of Mr. J. H. Les
esne, who, accompanied by Deputy
Sriff~!.Is.Auld, at once started
for Salem. 'The next morning
(Tuesday) they found Ransom

trouble succeeded in bringing him to
Manning, where he was put in

STRANGE SCENES IN SUMTER
i Little Colored Girl by Some Unexplain.
ed Power Smashes up Crockery, Break,
up Furniture, and does a Number of
Sr:MnTEr, Dec. 19. - Our people are stil
:onsiderabiy puzzled by the strange mani
Eestations of some hidden force which seem:
to follow the little colored girl. Daisy 1Rob
insaf. She is quite an ordinary lookini
girl of about 12 years of age, and has a rath
er subdued or languid look out of her eyes
She seldom smiles and seems to gaze list
Issly around at tie crowd of white and col
ored people of both sexes and all ages wh<
ire continually going to see her, some 0
them two or three times a day. Daisy':
mother is dead and her father resides it
Camden, but she lives with her aunt, wh<
is employed as a servant by Mr. F. A
Treadwell, an excellent gentleman, wh
with his estimable wife have both seen ant
beard things which, bring vouched for b1
them, cannot be disputed.
Your correspondent is quite skeptical it
such matters, having several years since
with'the assistance of a friend, exposed ant
broken up certain pretended spiritual man
ifestations of a very similar nature; so it
company with one or two friends he accept
ed the kind invitation extended and pro
ceeded to investigate and if possible see witl
his own eyes some of the strange sights go
ing on, feeling quite confident of an eas:
solution of the matter. This little part]
were happily more successful than man;
others had been, for only a very small pro
portion of the large number continually
docking to the place have had the good for
tune to see or hear anything unusual. Hai
the unknown power been at all accommo
ating and manifested itself to only one
half the people who have been to Mr. Tread
well's, it would have been a sad affliction t4
Sr-eo eynot only would a'll th
household effects of Daisy and her auntant
several other colored persons who reside or
the premises, have been utterly demolished
aut also all the worldly effects of Mr. ani
Srs. Treadwell. Their houses, fences ant
everything else would have gone in the same
sway. Therefore they are to be be congratu
lated that the strange manifestations occur
is it were, only semi-occasionally.
When the little party referred to above
reached the premises of Mr. Treadwell the
were cordially invited by that gentleman t<
repair at once to the room which Daisy oc
cupies. Everybody was excluded from the
room except Mr. Treadwell, Mr. C. E
Stubbs, Mr. J. F. Pate and a friend of hit
:whose name we did not learn,) Daisy Rob
nson, a colored man, William Tate, whc
held the lantern, and your correspondent
The door of the room was closed and fas.
:ened on the inside to prevent anyone comr
.ng in and disturbing the party, who all
tood in a semi-circle facing Daisy, who was
;itting near the door. In the room was a
bed, a bureau, a cupboard, and a small
.hair. The crockeryware (or rather all that
was left of it, for it had nearly all been
broken up) of Daisy's aunt, who occupied
:he room with her, was packed away in a
bucket under the bed.
For a few minutes the party was silent
awaiting developments,. but gradually a gen.
tral conversation was indulged in upon the
ubject which had brought us to the place,
bach member of the party keeping an eye
mn Daisy all the time. Suddenly a large,
eavy tea cup was thrown upon the floor at
>ur feet. It spun round a few times, struck
dr. Pate on the foot, and rolled into the
ireplace. The cup was not seen until out
attention was attracted by its striking the
loor. Mr. Pate is certain, from the direc.
ion from which it struck his foot, that it
tame from under the bed. All the party
sere positive'that Daisy did not throw it,
is she was not seen to move a muscle, neith.
tr could the- colored man have thrown it
without detection, as he was standing in the
semi-circle with the party. Your corres
ondent to satisfy himself and the rest of
he party took the lantern, and carefully
zearched under the bed to see if anyone was
roncealed there, but no one was there. The
rhole room was afterwards examined, and
ras found to be closely sealed above and all
ound. The 4oor is tight, and a careful ex.
minaton from the outside failed to reveal s
rack that even a ten cent piece could hav
yeen thrown through.

strange things which they have seen and

eious manner, and it seems to have beer
atterly impossible that these things can be
:usett by any human agency without de
ection long before this time.
Yesterday morning Daisy was taken from
Mfr. Treadwell's by her sister and carried tc
er house at Mr. C. E. Stubbs. Since thea
singular and seemingly supermitural oc
urrences have not been manifested at Mr.
lreadwell's, but have been going on at
;reat rate at Mrs. Stubbs's. Lettie Robin
ion, Daisy's sister. says she cannot afford
mch costly entertainments for the public,
md does not know what to do in the matter,
'.s she cannot turn her sister out of doors,

~ating her breakfast, the bedstead in hez

review of the trade of the week says:
Mild weather .causes increasing trouble.
Perhaps the coal trade suffers most. The
dry goods and boot and ';hae trades are
much afiected, especially in articles for win
ter wear, and in some quarters even holiday
trade is restricted by the unseasonable
weather. The bad state of the country
roads cuts off much trading and renders
many retail dealers unable to meet their ob
ligations. and small failures have become
alarmingly frequent. At Philadelphia un
fortunate embarrassments in the clothing
trade are feared, unless winter weather
Another unfavorable feature appears in
some Southern States. Trade is seriously
affected for a time by the operation of the
Farmers' Alliance, which enlist farmers in
co-operative trading and absorbs money
which might otherwise go to settle indebt
edness with merchants. The results in some
localities almost paralyzes trade.
But the general tenor of reports as to the
condition of business, excepting as tempo
rarily affected by the weather, is by no
means unfavorable. The volume of trade
continues larger than a year ago. Clearings,
outside of New York, are still about 10 per
cent. larger than last year, and railroad
earnings show a handsome increase, not
withstanding the inability of many roads
to furnish cars for all the freight ofiered.
SCROFULA FROM CHILDHOOD.
After Beini Treated by Eminent Physi
cians he is Cured by S. S. S.
The following is an extract taken from a
letter received from Mr. T. A. Sizemore, of
Piedmont, S. C., and written under date of
November 6, 1SSS:
"I am now twenty-eight years old and
from the time I was seven years of age un
till 18S5, I suffered with a severe case of
scrofula. During that time I took every
known remedy, but to no purpose. Iy
father took me to North Carolina, where I
was put under the treatment of an eminent
physician. The medicines given me had r
only a temporary effect, for shortly after my
return the scrofula broke out in a more ma- 1
lignant form and I was worse off than ever e
"In 1885 I discontinued taking all other p
medicines and commenced taking Swift's t
Specific (S. S. S.) I took a number of bot
tles and it cured me. I have been free from
scrofula from that time until now."
Attacked by Rheumatism.
I have been selling Swift's Specific (S. S. 1
S.) since 1878, during which time I might
name a great number of very remarkable
cures that it has effected. One in particular,
was a person who was attacked with rheu- 1
matism. The case was so bad that he wis
helpless for a long time. He took hundreds
of dollars worth of other medicines without
receiving any benefit. He was at length 1
happily and permanently cured after using
a few bottles of Swift's Specific (S. S. S.)

Reassessment of Real Estate.

following circular to the County Auditors of n
the State: g
"Coxx'xwIA, Dec. 15, 1889. b
"The year 1890 is the regular time for el
making a reassessment of real estate. In ec
taking returns of personal property County ,
Auditors will also require a new return of b
real property for the fiscal year 1889-'90."'
Makes many lives miserable, and often leads to
self destruction. Distress after eating,sick head- t
ache, heartburn, sour stomach, mental depres
sion, etc., are caused by this very common a-ad V
increasing disease. Hood's Sarsaparillatones the 1
stomach, creates an appetite, promotes healthy o
digestion, relieves sick headache, clears the p
mind, and cures the most obstinate cases of dys- n
pepsia. Eead the fonlowing:
"I haveobeen troubled with dyspepsia. I had .t
but little appetite, and what I did cat distressed o
me,or did me little good. In an hour after eating
I would experience a faintness or tired, all-gone f
feeling, as though I had not eaten anything.
Hood's Sarsaparilla did me an immense amount
of good. It gave me an appetito, and my foo
Irelished and satisfied the craving I had previously
experienced. It relleved me of that faint, tired,
afl-gone feeling. I have felt so much better since
I took Hood's Sarsaparilla, that I am happy to 8:
