THEn RYANS' ENTERITAINMENT.-:-ThO
exhil?ition of Professor Ryan and his
son Rolla is altogethmer a very credita.
bJo one.. The Professor himelf is fathm
or a failure, his recitations being bare
ly good, anud his lectures not worth
hearing-thme latter being made up of
platitudes and truisms delivered in a
tone and manner whiQll gemy}ci, flce
*decidedly wearIsome. The Professor,
we learn, has talent, and we doubt it
Snot; but it by no mneans lies
in lecturig, and he would do well to
abandon that piart of his performancps,
Rlolla, however, is quite an attist, and
has improved the talents with which he
*is certainly gifted. is persongtiens
of charactor are ve,ally admirable, and
hils recitations very credJitable. Of the
.former, the "'Newsboy," Lhe "Teoyas
Cow Boy," the "Fool" and the irypoi
phondriac" gro al1 excellent ronditio'ns,
.and p,r ypry laughable. is p)arodies
Pu1 iflixcelsior"' and "'The Raven" .are
pxtr.enpg)y laughable, and~ in them he
shows grpafest command of his
facial nerves. Rolla is quite a suOcess
as a facial artigt~ and he would do 'vpg
eV9teo~ all his tnhefnd, attention to
this'branch of his pirofession. kt takes
talent df the highest order, withi long,
I19ng practice to beco5e attractveas a
more recltatioist; and Rolla lacks tile
one and has had. little opportunity for
the other. Taken as a wfiolo the exhi
bitioni is both attI~ract ive am311 creditable,
1111d should always coiinanid a good
ludience'. Rolla is really anit artist,

A HORRIME ACQ14DENT.
A Colored Woman is Caught by a Re
Svolving Shaft and Mangled to Death,
A sickeninig accident occurred on
Monday afternoon at Mr. W. B.
Creight's steamit gin inl Winnsboro, by
which ia Iitman being was dashed into,
eternity without a Anonient's warning.
Among the hands omploye(1 by ir.
Creight was a colore, wolan, * Millie
'Johnsonl, whose business it was to
pas.s Cotton to the ginl. InI Owk room inl
which she worked was a revolviig
shaft, to which the wheels driving the
nacliiery were attached. Cotton
seed was piled oil the floor within two
or three inches of the shaft. Millie
was ill the habit of stepping over this
shaft in going to and fro, Iot-with
stiindiig collstalt warnings froi the
other etployes of the risk she ,is,

strong homespun and cvn the severe
srain did not rend it. Assistance was
imipossible, and nothing could be doue
but to stop, te engine. A physiciai

when he reached the scoic n othilig

to recogni'ze anything hum1an in the
shapeless iass )efore him. On being
