A Child Falls Into a Well.
Last Thursdiy afternoon Herion, the
three-year-old son of Mr. Geo. H. Huggins,
fell into Mr. W. Scott Harvin's well, and
was nearly drowned before he was rescued.
Mrs. Huggins was making a social call at
Mrs. Harvin's, and was just leaving when
one of Mrs. Harvin's children ran into the
house with the cry that "Hermon Las fallen
into the well !" Mrs. Huggins was first to
get to the well, and in her fright attempted
herself to go down into the well to save he,:
boy, but was prevented. The little fellow
of course sank when he fell in. and before
his mother's eyes he sank again ! The buek
et pole was at once let down, and the little
fellow managed to sustain himself thereby
for a few minutes, by which time Mr. Patton
McLeod, who was near by, arrived and at
once-rapidly descended to where the little
fellow was, reaching him just as he was
sinking the third time. Others having ar
rived by this time they both were pulled
out by means of the well pole. Hermon was
not hurt. but suggested that it was rather
much water for one time.
There are two remarkable coincidences in
this connection. A few months ago a little
child of Mr. N. M. Johnson fell into Mr. C.
R. Harvin's well, and the same negro girl
was in that yard and near the well, as was
in Mr. W. S. Harvin's yard when Hermon
fell into the well. Mr. J. W. McLeod was
passing Mr. C. R. Harvin's just after young
Johnson fell in, and the child was rescued
by Mr. McLeod. Mr. McLeod's son Patton
rescued young Huggins.
The family feel as if the little boy was
rescued from the grave.

Sum merton News.
SUM.MERToN, Sept. 22.-The weather has
been more favorable for gathering the tleecy
staple, and a great deal has been harvested
the past week.
The lecture delivered by Dr. J. L. Easter
ling last Friday night was quite a treat to
those that were fond of French history.
The subject was Napoleon. The Doctor did
the subject full justice, and .aicquitted him
self to the satisfaction of his audience.
A shooting scrape occurred up on Jacks
Creek last Friday evening between Mr.
Thomas Gardner and two colored boys. It
seems that one of the boys interfered with
Mr. Gardner while he was weighmng cotton
for the other hands. He was ordered to de
sist, but refused to do so. Hot words wvere
passed. In the altercation Mr. Gardner
shot Gabriel McDuffie in the leg and Nelson
Bracey in the lower part of the abdomen.
Both the wounded were getting on very well

News from Silver.
SnavER, Sept. 22.-Another eventful day
in Silver's history marks an epoch of her
rising progress. The morning wa spent
in a trial justice court, in the trial of road
defaulters; the evening was characterized by
the ladies' church festival. There is life in
all pleasure, but to enhance that pleasure
womnan's work is the most laudable. First
at the sepulcher, last at the cross, she finds
a solace for all of man's woes. Were it not
for the disturbing element of some non
professing church members, our commnunity
bids fair to rival others. Dancing seems to
cripple religion. It is an evil our preach
ers fail to handle, and for which they are in
a measure responsible. The moral stand
ard of the rising generation is dangerously
crippled even by those whose lives as chris
- tians should be an example woithy of imi
tation. Even our academy, built by the
- State's money for the moral training of boys
and girls, has been allowved by the trustees
- to be turned into a ball room. Our school
commissioner, if he be a God-fearing man,

For years I was troubled with the
most malignant type of chronic blood
trouble. After trying various other
remedies, without getting any benefit,
I was induced by Joe Schell, a barber,
who has since moved to St. Louis,
and who was cured by Swift's Specific
of a constitutional blood trouble, to
take S. S. S. A few bottles cured ine
permanentiy. I also consider S. S. S.
the best tonic Iever saw. While tak

The new Presbyterian church at this place
has L:een completed and is a handsome
building. It is not a very large structure,
but capable of accommodating the congre
gation at this place.
The heavy and continued rains which have
been falling for the past eight or ten days,
have greatly injured the cotton crop. Great
quantities of open cotton cannot be gather
ed because of its wet condition, besides
much of it is sprouting in the bolls, and in
some places the bolls are rotting. At this
writing the weather is warm, and the indi
cations are that the rain will continue.
The Episcopalians held the first service in
their chapel at this place last Sunday even
ing. Rev. H. H. Phelps officiated and ad
ministered the sacrament. The chapel is
not completed yet, but will be in the near
future. In the original grant of this town
by the lord proprietors, a lot of land was
designated and set apart for the erection of
an Episcopal church, but, singular to say,
this is the first house of worship of that
denomination that has ever been built here.
The congregation is few in number, but by
persistent and steady effort it is at last en
abled to worship under its own vine and fig
tree, with none to iolest or make it afraid.

('olumbia, September 19, 1890.
H~on. J1. P. Richardson, Governor--Sir: In
August last 1 advised you that it was your
duty to appoint commnissioners of election
at least sixty days before the ge'neral elec
tion to be held in November next, and that
sepemiber 5 was the last day on which such
appointments could be legally made.
I find that I was mistaken, and that I
should have advised you that the appoint
ments should be made at least thirty days
before the election.
I am solely responsible for this mistake,
you having referred the wvhole matter to me
and followed the advice given. I regret this
mstake ve ry much and can only account for
lit by having confused the appointment of
commlissionecrs of elect ion with the appoint
ment of comkiniissioner's in certain towns,
among them Siium nerville and Walterboro,
where the appointments are required to be
nmade sixty' davs before the election.
V \ery respectfully, WMr. K. B.orxMAN,
Assistant Attorney General.
