It would be a first class idea if some of1

hope it will not be long before another as

deceased was the son of Mr. John C. Lan

a worthy representative of a brilliant fam
ily from which he des.:ended and a pride to
his loving parents. Wilbur was popular
with his tellow students at Clemson and he
stood well in his studies. The disease
which produced death was appendicitis.
Everything that local physicians, assisted
by Dr. J. A. Mood of Sumter, an uncle, to
gether with the loving ministrations of de
voted parents could do, would not arrest
the affliction. The body was brought
through Manning Friday night and taken
to Summerton, where the funeral took place

Great Loss By Forest Fires.
In our last issue we mentioned something
about the ravages of the forest fires in the
Salem section, but we had no idea that the
damage was so great.
Mr. F. N. Thomas of Seloc was in town
last Saturday and he said it is reported
that Monday of last week some young men
on their way home from Sumter through
what is known as Thoroughfare road, threw
out some fire, and as the wind was high it
soon fanned into flames and spreai itself
through Dial's bay, reaching J. J. Carra
way's. It was with great difficulty that the
sons of Mr. Carraway and a son of Mr.
Thomas, assisted by a colored man, saved
the barn and stables, and at one time the
dwelling *as in imminent danger. Not
withstanding the hard work which saved
this property, Mr. Carraway did not escape
without the loss of his blacksmith shop and
contents, consisting of tools and farming
implements. The widow Wallace lost four
houses and considerable fencing. A house
on the Morris Floyd place was consumed,
so was one on Neal Thompson's place; an
other on the Dorril place, and every house
on the Wright Wilson place was swept away
by the monster. The fiames lashed them
slves into fury and leaped across, Hud
son's mill por.d, ctestroyed a barn with its
contents belonging to Ellison Rush, and!
then went over the county line and burned
the barn of Wheeler Chandler. The dam-!
ge to fencing was great and it will take a
great deal of hard work to replace the prop.
rty destroyed. AcrT
From a gentleman on Santee we are in
ormed that forest fires have done consid
erable damage to the timbered lands of the
southern portion of the county; consuming
in its traek all the straw and litter, which
are so valuable to the farming interest. The
season has been so dry and having .such
igh winds, which carried the fire at such
speed that every human effort failed in
most instances in stopping its passage as
long as it could find material to burn.
There is certainly a great deal of damage
done the farming interest of our county
each year from the above causes, and it is
high time to hunt up these fire-bugs who
every January and February set fire to all
lands adjoining them in the hours of night.,
perhaps, to obtain pasturage for their bob
tail oxen. The laws of our State make it a
misdemeanor and liable to the chaingang,~
and the sooner the magistrates of the county~
run down these fire-bugs the sooner these
forest fires will cease and the farmers there
by save hundreds ot dollars in straw and
On last Wednesday night while the wind
was blowing a gale and a forest fire was
burning near a negro's house on Gen.
Moise's plantation known as Pine Grove,
he negro, whose name is Bill Felder, was
utting down some trecs which had caught
fire and were endangering his home; and
aving his wife and children assisting in
ighting the fire from his place, he cut a
tree down which fell on his little daughter
and instantly killed her. Magistrate A. J.
Lichbourg was summoned to the inquest.
but with the above facts he declined to hold
the inquest, and ordered the child buried.
Nearly every year these fire-bugs not!
only destroy the straw and timber, but!
sometimes the life of some innocent person
is lost by it, and every good citizen should
ase the apprehension of any one who
would set fire and cause such results.

last week he was located in the vicinity of
Syracuse in Darhington county, and a little
later the sheriff of Darlington telegraphed
our sheriff that he had in ecstody a party
giving his name as Troy Christopher. and
described him. The description of the
man was so perfect that Sheriff Bradham

Sour Stomach Cure.
Along time I was a great sufferer from liver
and Stomach troubles. I had a dull nain
n my left side under my heart. At times
my side became swollen an d the pain acute.
y~ sto iach was always sour and I would
vomit every time I eat. My bowels were
very irregular causing me pain and dis
tress. I tried many things without any
benefit. I read ot your medicine and con
cluded to try it, and am glad that:1 did. I
felt better aitter the first dose. I continued
to take Ramon's Liver Pills &~ Tonic Pellets

The Angel of Death Removed One of Our

The sad messenger of death has
visited our town and removed one o1
our most beloved and highly respect
ed citizens. Maj. Jno. M. Richard
His death occured at the family
residence in Daingerfield last Friday
and was not unexpected. He had
been confined to his bed most of the
time for the past twelve months and
his last moments were passed sur
rounded by mourning relatives and
Maj. Richardson has been one of
the foremost men in the South for
the past forty or fifty years. He was
born at Bloom Hill Farm, Sumter
District, South Carolina, March 13th,
1831. He -raduated with honor at
Harvard, cambridge, in July. 1S54,
and adopted school teaching as a
profession, which he followed with
credit the best part of his life. When
the South seceded he espoused her
cause: and when the war broke out
he enlisted in the Confederate army
and served with distinction as major
throughout that memorable struggle
'Twas during this bloody conflict
that he lost a leg, and was a cripple
the balance of his life. He was a
strong believer in the justness of the
Southern cause and defended it w.th
earnestness and vigor throughout
After the war he devoted his time
and energy in the cause of education,
and was considered one of the fore
most educators in the state.
At one time he was a candidate for
the Democratic nomination of State
Superintendent of public instruc
tions. He made a remarkable race
in fact it was so close that the con
vention was locked for some time,
but he was finally defeated by a
He has always been a Jeffersonian
Democrat of the strongest type, and
has written a great deal advocating
its principals and defending it from
the bitter attacks of the Republi
cans. He believed in the free and
unlimited coinage of silver, and that
times would never get better until it
was put on equal terms with gold.
He was a great admirer of Win. J.
Bryan, and looked upon him as the
proper man to lead the silver forces
Much of his life was devoted to lit
erature, both prose and poetry, and
he is the author of several published
works. One of his best literary prod
uctions was a song entitled: "Lee Was
Right, Comrades True," of which he
composed both words and music and
which he dedicated to the survivors
of the Confederacy and their descen
dants. His pen embraced a wide
range-religion, politics, finance,
literature, etc. He contributed many
articles on these subjects to the Hous
ton Post and other Southern papers.
He was one of those characteristic
Southerners so famous since the late
civil war, and of whom there are but
few left-honest; pure, generous, lib
eral to a fault and forgiving; a Chris
tian of the purest character. He
was a man that was truly loved and
respected by all who knew him.
In his death Christianity has lost
one of its brightest examples; educa
tion a leading promoter; literature a
shining light; Democracy one of its
ablest advocates, and society one of
its saftest anchors.
His life has been worithily spent,
and the messenger of death has call

From the Evening Meteor, pub:ished at
Ennis, Tex., the following account is taken
of the marriage of Miss Lillian Burns,
daughter of the late Capt. .. A. Burns of
Privateer in this county, and a sister of
Mrs. W. I. Hudnal:
"Justice Cochran's office was the scene
of quite a romantic marriage yesterday at
11 a. in., in which that urbane and obliging
official was called upon to officiate. The
contracting parties were Mr. Stanant to
Miss Lillian Burns. T'-e marrtage was the
consummation ofit a courtsbio' of a very
short period, the couple having never r7et
until tour weeks ago. The groom is head
uwitager of Yellow Stone Kit's show. and to
a )let.-or reporter this afternoon ine said:
'I have been in the show bnuinjess nineteen
year-: have trave e- all over the United
Stat' and have been looking for a wife
all that tiouo. As soon as I met Miss
Burns I realized that I had met inz fate. A
dei p. burning love for her sprung up in
my heart, and I soon saw that any fond at
fections were reciprocated.
"'To wake a long story short, I proposed
and she accepted. I went at once to Wax
abachie and procured the necessary cre
dentials. and we were happily married.
The bride is 20 years of age, and her
mother consented to the marriage. How
ever, I did not ask the mother's consent
until after I had returned with the license.
I showed her the papers. and after reading
them she took us by the hands and said:
'May Go: bless you. my children.' Our
show will leave here in a fPw days, and my
wife will travel with me. Yes. sir, you can
find anything you want in Texw.'"
