We regret to chronicle the
departure from our midst of
Mr. and Mrs. John W. LeGrand
They left Monday to go to the
homo of Mrs. LeGrand's parents
at Brightsvillo in Marlboro coun
ty, S. C. They expect to spend
a few weeks with Mrs. Le
Grand's parents after which
they will" remove to Bennetts
ville, where Mr. LeGrand will
engage in the practice of law.
Mr. LeGraud is a native of
this country. He was licensed
to practice law in 1900, and the
past three years has engaged in
the practice here in Rocking
ham. ' During that time lie has
taken a prominent stand at the
bar in the county, and has won
for himself many friends. He
was married last October to
Miss Mary Elizabeth Liles, the
accomplished "daughter of Mr.

Tho S. C. State Fair.
The premium list for the next
State Fair has been issued. It
oilers many attractive and valu
able prizes. Send to A.W. Love
Chester, for a copy. It is not
too early to begin preparations
to send enough exhibits to cap
ture Marlboro's share of prizes
offered this year.
One fact should make many
new exhibitors for the next Fair
-the Society pays the freight
on all exhibits grown or produ
ced in this State, thus enabling
exhibits to be sent to and re
turned from the fair without
cost to the exhibitor.
A certain pupil of the public
schools was recently asked to
write an essay on the human body
and this was the result:
"The human body consists of
thu hoad, thorax, abdomen and
legs. Tho hoad contains the
brains in caso there aro any. Tho
thorax contains tho heart and
lunga, aldo the liver and lights.
Tbs auiibmen contains tho bowels,
of which there aro five-a, e, i, o,
u, and somotimcs w and y. The
legs extend from thc abdomen to
tho floor, and have hinges at the
top and middle to ennble a fellow
to sit when standing or to stand
when sitting."-Albany Journal.
M. J. Finnegan of our city
had a friend by the name of
Frank L. Damm who rosides
near Senator. When Mr. Damm
heard of Mr. Finnegan's mar
riage not long ago he wrote him
a lettsr of congratulation and
added: "Please accept the con
gratulations of the whole Daram
family."-Lacon (111) Home
According to an exchange, the
man who .went out to milk and
sat on a rock in the middle of

closed Friday afternoon amid the
shouts of now-born souls and gene

from the various churches around.
It did seem a pity that the meeting
should close juBt at that time with
the altar crowded vith penitents and
souls being saved every day, but tho
meeting at Boy kin WOB to commence
on Sunday and preacher and people
needed a day's rest. We predict a
great and glorious meeting at Boy
kin thiB week, for Brightsville cir
cuit has a preacher worthy of his
calling, and the people ot the charge
should feel truly grateful to the S.
C. conference for keeping them sup
plied with such preachers as Rove.
Baker and Shuler, for they are wor
thy of as good preachers as the con
ference affords-a generous, kind
hearted people, that believe in reli
gion and a plenty to eat-ever ready
to stand by their pastor through
evil as well as good report, as has
been demonstrated in the past. Rev.

The crops in Brightsville section
are very good, especially corn, and

think there will be an extra good

now on. The farmers seem to be

Tho' South Carolina College in round
off out the flrst century of Its existence
inj will celebrate Ita centennial In Jan
uary, 1905. The College was-chartered
II 1801 and. opened for active work rn
january, 1805. It owes Its existence to
? patriotic purpose, the education of
til thc youth of the State nt a common
-cuter, "in order to promote tho in
struction, thc good order and the har
nouy of the whole community," und it
?voa built from a portion of thc pro
c?da of a reimbursement made.by the
United Stutts to South Om ulina for ex

that have prevailed in South CRrulina

lege Alumni contains the names of men
who have, become noted In ail the pur
suits of life, both in peace and war.
Thc exigencies of the struggle between
tb? States closed t*e college In 180?
and the buildings were used aa hospi
tal* for sick and wounded Confederates.
Out as soon aa peace was restored the
iBstltatlon was reopened by tba "Orr
government" and enjoyed several years
of success unttl lt was overturned dur
ing th? Radical regime. Since 1880, bow
aver, the college hon been continuously
open, and bas educated hundreds of
young men and a number af young
women, who for some years have been
permitted to partake of Ita advantages.
Originally the College was known as
a literary institution, although -from
?arly tunes Its faculty contained scien
tists of great ability, but of late years
Its courses have broadened out so as
to embrace aloo technical aclenUflc inr

and mules, marked improvement
will be seen after the first few
doses. There is no doubt about it.
The Powders, acting directly on the
digestive organs, first thoroughly
cleanses the stomach and bowels,
correcting all disorders, and then
good healthy appetite comes nat
urally and surely. It is the most
powerful tonic and appetizer on
the market to-day, and when once
used horsemen will have no other.
Ashcraft's Powders produce that
silky sheen of coat and hair so
admired by horse fanciers. The
Powders fatten but never bloat.
Always high grade and put up
in doses-never in bulk.
By the use of three or four doses
a week your horse or mule will
not be subject to colic or any dis
ease of the stomach and bowels.
"I had an old horse that was In very had
condition generally. He was thin and had a
blood dlsea?e that was causing the hair to
come off. I gave the horse three doses ot Ash
craft's Condition Powders a day for seven days
and fed him liberally. Thc appetite improved
from thc first few doses and thc animal gained
fifty-two pounds in flesh during the weclc I
gavu it three doses a day. Thc general health
of thc animal was greatly improved hy the usc
of thc powders and he was made almost a new
horse. I most heartily recommend Ashcraft's
Condition Powders, as I know they are a splen
did tonie and appetizer.-C. C. SIRES, Livery
man, Monroe,V. O."
