COMING TO BENNETTSVTLLE.
Mr. John W. LeGrand of Rock

[Aoylo Saxon, Itockiugbani, July 30 j"
We regret to chronicle the
departure from our midst of
Mr. and Mrs. John W. LeGrand
They left Monday to go to the
home of Mrs. LeGrand's parents
at Brigit tsville 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. LeGrand. 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 he 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.
JTR Liles, of Br' Voville. 8. C.

Tlic S. C. State Fair.
The premium list for the next
State Fair has been issued. It
oilers many attractive and valu
able pri/.es. 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
exhibiL to be sent to and re
turned from the fair without
cost to the exhibitor.
A certain pupil of the public
schools was recently aBke'1 to
write an essay on the human uody
and this was the result:
"The human body consists of
thc head, thorax, abdomen and
legs. The hoad contains the
brains in caso there aro any. Tho
thorax contains the heart and
lungs, aldo tho liver apd lights.
.To? abdomen containa tho bowels,
of which there are five-a, e, i, o,
u, and sometimos w and y. The
legs extend from the ubdonien 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 oy the name of
Frank lt. 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 Damm
family."-Lacon (111) Home
Journal.
According to an exchange, the
man who went out to milk and
sat on ? rock in the middle of
the pasture and waited for the
cow to back up, was a brother
to a man, who kept store and
wouldn't advertise because he
reasoned that the purchasing
public would back up to his
place of business when it want
ed something.

What Was Seen and Heard by a
Visitor.
The meeting at Antioch church
closed Friday afternoon amid the
shouts of new-born BOUIB and gene
ral rejoicing of the people of God
from the various churches around.
It did seem a pity that the meeting
should oloso juBt at that time with
the altar crowded v i th penitents and
souls hoing saved every day, but the
meeting at B?ykiu was to commence
on Sunday and preacher and peoplo
needed a day's rest. Wo predict a
great and glorious meeting at Boy
kin this week,' for Brightsville cir
cuit has a preacher worthy of hie
calling, and the people of the charge
should feel truly grateful to the S.
C. conference for keeping them sup
plied with such preachers as Revs.
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.
Shuler was assisted at Antioch by
Revs. Ariail, Parry, Peele and Mc
Farlan.
The crops iu Brightsville section
arc very good, especially corn, and
the cotton, though somewhat late,
will compare favorably with last
year, and with the present rain, I
think there will be an extra good
crop if nothing happens to it from
now on. The farmers seem to be
in fine spirit and everything points
to prosperty.
New buildings are going up in
every direction, and all business
seems to he thriving, and a general
good time seems to be coming to
those who continue to labor and to
wait. Friends, continue to lift up
your eyes and look to the hills from
whence cometh all our help.

Tho'South Carolina College ta round
off out thc flrot century or its existence
ind will relebrutc Its centennial tn Jan
jary, 1005. Tho College was charioted
it 1801 and opened for active work to
January, 1805. It owes Its existence to
. patriotic purpose, the education of
iii thc youth of the H tute at a common
center, "In order to promote the In
?truttlon, ' Rood order and th? har
nony of t. .-hole community," und it
was built . nt a portiun o? thc pro
c?da of a reimbursement made by the
United Stutcs to South Carolina for ex
penses incurred iu thc Revolution, tour
ing the century that is closing the Col
ene has contributed largely to tho
.latcBmanshlp. . the patriotism, tho
earning and the. high moral standards
that nave prevailed in South Carolina
and ber sister States. The roll of Col
lege Alumni contains the names of men
?bo nave, become noted In all the pup
suits of life, both tn peace and war.
The exigencies of tbe struggle botween
tike States closed tate college in 1633,
and tbe buildings were awl as hospi
talu for sick ana wounded Confederates.
Ont as soon as peace was restored tbe
Institution was reopened by tb* "Orr
government" and enjoyed several years
of success until lt was overturned d-ir
ing the Xiadlcal regime. Since 1680, bow
ever, tbe college baa been continuously
open, and bas educated hundreds of
yaun? men and a number af young
women, who for some years have been
parra I tied to partake of its advantages.
Originally the College was known as
a literary institution, although from
.arly times Its faculty contained scien
tists of great ability, but of late years
its courses have broadened out so as
to embrace also technical scientific ln>
sSrueuou, instruction in law and a
course fn practical methods for teach
ers.
President Benjamin Sloan, the head
sf the Department of-Physics and Kn
docer!ag. is a graduate of West Point,
said waa a distinguished ocQoer of or?
nasM? during tbe war between tbs
Statw. tils graduates in euglpserlng
are now occupying moot responsible
pool tiena in diff?rent patts ?ai the United
titates. Professor Joesph Daniel Pope,
des s of tbe LAW Department, bas hied
?Ids esperte ncc In government in the;
.sgtatstive balls of tba State and to tba
Oeesoaion Ctaavantteu, and ts recognized
sa high authority in law and in equity
Jurisprudence. Some of the other mem
bers of the faculty have had dis
tinguished careers in this College, while
others bave brought to lt tbe beet
methods of colleges and universities
elsewhere.
Thc ratost recent and moat important
addition that has been made tb the
usefulness 0r thc College ls the estab
lishment of scholarships to be given to
one man-teacher in each county who
has taught at least one year. This ia
Intended to ofter the advantages of pro
fessional training to one who has aU
ready gathered practical experience in
Jlrcct contact with pupils in the school
room and rculizcu thc difficulties that
munt be surmounted. Professor Wsrd

for Teachers.
Although nearly approaching ttp etrav
tentual anniversary, the South Csrduua
College shows none of thc d?vretforae
of old age, but rattier Increasing siffna
of vigorous life. A new departure of
xreat Importance to thc College and tp
the State has just been inaugurated,
for some years the College has bad a
department of pedagogy, for the trattt
.ng of teachers; but last winter, for Ch?
(list time, the Legislature created a
number of endowed normal scholar
ships, one for each county. It is the
'mention of thc Trustees and Faculty
to sut these scholarships upon a high
plane, and to seek thereby to qualify
superior young men for positions af
leadership and Influence in our public
.leliools. However largely women may.
-e employed as teachers, tbe work of
?uperlntendence, direction and control
'tiuftt continue to be most largely tn the
hands of the meit; and it ls. to supply
ihece teachers of leadership and in
fluence, in the community as woU as in
'.he schools, that the College wu! chiefly
?lin, through these scholarships. Hence,
io young man under nineteen years of
ige will he eligible, and pre/arenee wHf
Sc niven to thone applicants who have
already taught with success for at
!eunt one year. .*?
A special and technical course af
study lian been established, on a bigb
yet practical plane; and lt Is Intended
that thin department shaU be worthily,
entitled to he railed a "College for
Teachers." All the work will be ' dis
tinctively normal, and apart from the
regular College classes. The Trustees
and faculty feel sure that lu preparing
s body of strong and well equipped
men teachers thc College will uid In
-upplylng one of the most important
needs of the State. They hope, also,
that till,", work, In Its suceees and its
results, may meet with such public ap
proval ur. to lend hereafter to its still
further enlargement.
Circulars have been issued giving the
details of regulations and course of
study, fi
The present session, now nearly
ended, ha? been very encouraging. Not
s ripple hus disturbed the Internal
pence of the College. The new Presi
dent has won golden opinions, and has
more than maintained the confidence
and affection gained In his long service
MS professor. The friends of thc Col
lege look hopefully forward lo the con
tinued SUACCSS mid Increased usefulness
of this venerated Institution, which will
soon enter upon its second century of
honorable ll la to ry.

\A/HEN ASHCRAFT'S Condi
tion Powders are fed to horses
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,
i 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 wiii
not be subject to colic or any dis
ease of the stomach and bowels.
"I had an old horse that was In very bad
condition generally. He wfts tnlu aml "a<* a
blood dlHcase that was causing the hair to
come off. 1 gave the horse three doses ol Ash
craft's Condition Powders a day for seven days
and fed him liberally. Thc appetite improved
from the flrst few doses and the animal gained
fifty-two pounds in flesh during the week I
Rave it ihrcc doses a day. The general health
of thc animal was greatly improved by the use
of thc powders and he wns made almost a new
horse. 1 most heartily recommend Ashcraft's
Condition Powders, as I know they arc a splen
did tonic and appetizer.-C. C. BIKES, Livery
man, Monroe,N. C."
