Is IT A Sw.INDE?-Mr. Orner, tli
postmaster at this place, has handc
us the following letter, received a fo'
A prIl 8, 1870.
To the Postmaster, Winneboro, S. C.
DEAn Sia-Would you please mak
inquiries in your town, or' have inser;
ed in one of your papers,.a local itQl
that Patrick Sweeny is needed i
Allentown, Penn., to look after hi
property which Is about to be sold fc
a debt of $180. Tihe cost of the prof:
orty is about $1500 or $2000.
This letter bears the earmarks<
fraud. There is no reason for any oli
to suppose that Patrick Sweony liv<
in Winnsboro any more than at any <
the other towns Iin the United States
A general search would have bee
made by printed circular. On thi
* other hand this lettea is written o
part of alcaf ofletter paper ina "fancy
envelope having the initial "N," th
* address written diagonally, and th
whole thing bearing simplicity ani
innocence on its face. A printed cir
onlar wou'd not be apt to get a bite, a
that dodge lhas played out. The inten
tion of the writer was evidently t<
- 4atch some greenhorn willing to fr'aud
ulontly persornate "Patrick Sweeny,'
who would send the $180, and hear ni
more of it. A similar case occurred.hi
Charleston some time ago, in whici
an old woman in Car ada was dupe(
by the story that'her son had died ami
loft some val.uables in pawn. She son
the money, but the thief was caught
We suspect this to be a similar dodge

SALEM, April 7, 1879.-It is seldon
I bat your correspondent has been abl
to send you a description of two ver;
pleasant occasions at one time. Thi!
he is able to do now.
ThI adies, with com'mendable zeal
had (!eterm>ined to have a festival o
the right of first of April for the bene
fit of the Salem Preibyterian church
at the house of Mr. G. B. Pettigrew
whose genial hospitality always rei
ders his house the objective point fo
buch occasions about Salem. In con
sequence of the inclement weather o
the night appointed, t. > i was only t
small attendance. The old adage runs
"The more the merrier, the fewer th
bettor cheer." We could almost revis
this for this occasion, for three time
the number could have found everl
good thing in abundanc - but we ar
almost sure could n'ot have made th(
few that were there en"joy themselve
any more. A repetition of this festi
val was generally called for, and th
- house of Mr. M. L. Owings, whos
motto, as every one knows, is, ''We]
come the coming and speed the partinl
guest," was selected. Here again wit
spent another exceedingly pileasan
ovenieg. The amusements on bot
occasions consisted of charades, char
I actor-songs and music, all of whic
- were rendered in a manner highly er
tertaining. In short, the festivals ma
3 be classed with the most enjoyable o<
casions of the season, where every
t body seemed pleased with themselve
- and every one else. We undorstan
that about forty dollars was realize
t at both festivals.
