that indicated who the float'ir was, or where
from. A report was circulated at first that
it was tho bo.ly of a inua who, it was
alleged bad been killed near Clark's block
Friday night, but, as previously slated, the
story abaut the killing is a hoax, though
perpetrated, perhaps in good faith, by a
man who is a little off mentally.
It is presumed that, In view of tho
fact that strawberries will be plentiful this
year in spite of all the elements could do,
we nuy ezpoct that quart boxes will hold
over a pint. But the presumption may not
be justified, for it is reported that, because
of an increase in freightH, pints will' bo
made less than usual, to counter balance
the extra freight charges. Well, letterripp.
Blessed is ho who can discover and enjoy
in a philosophical maimer the good in
things evil. If the pints aro reduced in
bulk we will not be confronted with the
perplexing fact that so-called a quart of
berries is not enough for one person rind
too much for two.
Hon. Ooorgo W. Hill, who received
this county's mauiiiious instructions lor tho
Ststo Senate yesterday afternoon, is thereby
assurred of the nomination. There will be
twenty-niuo delegates in tho Senatoripl
Convention. Alexander County will have
7 and J nek son and Uniou each 11. Mr.
Hill has for neveral weeks been engaged in
a fierce contest with Mr. Lemma, tho pres
ent Senator, for the victory in Jackson
County, and at tho primaries held last Sat
urday, he, Mr. Hill, carried fourteen of tho
seventeen precincts and got sixty-six of the
eighty-oight dolegates to the County Con
vention instructed for him. Tho County
Convention in Jackson County meets to
day and will doubtless send a solid Hill
delegation to the Senatorial Convention,
thus giving Mr. Hill eighteen of the twen
ty-nine delegates so far. With eighteen
delegates instructed for him Mr. Hill may
rely confidently upon Union County's dole
gation also, which will cause him to be
nominated by acclamation in the Conven
tion. Mr. Hill is worthy of the flattering
compliments thus paid bim, for he is a gen
tleman of ability and of energy, through
whoso elovatioo to positions of trust and in

Historians of a later date gathered and

mittee to investigate the matter who re
ported that tho convention was held and
the declaration adopted. More recent
InveHtlgatJous to establish Its genuineness
proved unsuccessful, and the question
still remains open to controversy. The
so-called declaration hold that tho rights
of the citizens wore Invaded by Great

country were dissolved. It declared for
freedom and Independence, aud under tho

Senator More an pressed tne urgeut ne
