An advertisement in this issue of
the Tom~ give notice of a big sale of
town lots at Pinewood and Remini, in
this county. These lots are on the
Manchester railroad, and in one of the
finest sections of the county. It is
the purpose of the owners of these
lands to get up a genuine boom for
these towns, and in consequence the
lots will be sold at comparatively low
figures. It is to the interest of the
railroad and of the owners of the land
to offer special inducements. Let ev
ery one in any way interested give
the matter careful consideration, and
by all means attend the sale.

died suddenly at his home last Mon

death. He had, however, been com
plaining for some time, probably a
year, of heart trouble, and his sudden
death was not altogether unexpected.

miles from town, was burned last
Monday morning. It was a large
building and the first story consisted
of stables. In the fire perished a fine
horse, a mule, a colt, two milch cows
and an ox. The barn contained all of
the corn, pease, fodder, and hay made
on the place during the past year,
also an unginned bale of cotton. The
place is occupied by Mr. J. A. Davis,
who said he thought he heard some
one walking in the yard that morning
about 1 o'clock, and he got up and
went out but could see nothing. He.
returned and had just got asleep,
wxhen he beard a roaring and went
out to find the whole building
enveloped in flames. He tried to cut
the horses out, but it was too hot for
him. The loss is estimated at about
$1,500, on which there was no insur
ance. It is thought to have been un
doubtedly the vork of an incendiary.

Sumter's Strange Electric Girl.
(Sumete m aelawla.]
The strange spiritual manifestations so
mysteriously connected with the little col
red girl Daisy Robinson continue daily
with unabated activity. If there be any
change at all since we last noticed thei, I
these manifestations are more frequent and
pronounced than formerly. Every day,
startling occurrences amuse and mystify the
persons who visit the room where the little
irl stays with her sister. The pictures
hanging on the walls leap from their places.
Cups, saucers, and other frangible articles
about the room commit suicide, the old sew
ing machine standing near the door persists
in toppling over on its side, the organ now
lashed to the wall by strong cords, shows a
restless desire to make its obeisance, and is
only restrained by the strength of the cords
holding it in its place, the chairs dance
hornpipes and karo, the tables waltz around
on first one leg and then another, the mir
ror on the bureau leaves its place and
smashes to smithereens on the floor, brich
bats flung by hands invisible, fall within
the room, the organ stool capers about, and
many ether doings are events of daily occur
rence in the haunted chamber.
The things reported in the Watchman and
Soudlron are beginning to attract attention
at the North, where the papers have copied
our reports of them. Among other letters
received by Daisy we publish two from a
medium or spiritualist in Philadelphia. In
answer to the first letter published below, a
gentleman who has taken great interest in
the strange case sent the desired lock of
hair. After "sitting in diagnosis" on thr
hair the results were communicated in the
second letter. We publish these letters as
written, without changing phraseology, or
thography, or supplying punctuation. We
hope our readers may be able to understand
them. We must confess that we (10 not.

Nothing of the antecedents or any facts
in the past life of Daisy or any member
alive or dead of her family wvas communi
cated to the writer of the foregoing letters.
The parentage of the little girl has been
withheld for obvious reasons, yet in the
second letter the Philadelphia correspond
ent speaks of p~eople who lived and moved
and had their being in this community.
The old .Joe referred to was the maternal
grandfather of Daisy.
Another letter received by the gentleman
referred to above, as having forwarded the
lock of hair, frem an entirely different
source, shows its author to be a man of
culture evidently faumiliar with phenomena
of a similar kind. Thinking that this let

Capt. Rt. W. Andrews the old pedestrian
who walked a few years ago from this point
to Boston was in Sumter on Saturday last
and paid us a visit. He says that he in
tends celebrating his one hundredth birth
day on Fourth of July in Sumter and that
on that day he wants all of his old friends
to assemble on C'ourt House Square where
he will promise themi entertainment. He
epect~s to lire 100 rounds on that day and
shortly after he will undertake another long
journey. He is very erect and would be
taken for a man not more than 70 years.
He ran the first stage route through Sumter
years ago.-&mloer Aldciace.
