WVILL TIIEV PLANT A BIG CROP!f
There is a great deal of speculation
amongst our people as to whether the
fartmet h of Fairfield County will plant
a larger ^,rop of cotton next year on
accou't of !he advanced price this
year. Th.e general opinion appears to
be tla' they wilt, and some fears ate
entet t.ijied on account of this belief.
One old farmnter arguing o: the subj-et
says, that the lower a ton goe, the
tmore he must plant to raise the amount
neces>ary to tn t demands at higher
pr:c"s. This is a certain kind of argu
mvnt, and if his individual incrcased
quota did not tend to lower prices it
would be a mete potent argument.
We do not ti:ntk any man or commu
nity of men can eette the question,
but if our farmners in Fairfield would
make their own corn and raise their
own meat, or in othee words make the
farm self-u,taining, then coit al would
be an nut side con-iderationl. You can
not l.ur" :t u. n much who has plenty
of c rnt and bacon; and we can have it
if we will. Stick to corn and hogs in
1896 and we predict good time.; in

Epilepsy 20 Years.
Cured by Dr. Miles' Nervine.
A few years ago. Mr. L. W. Gallaher, was
an extensive, successful expert manu-i
facturer of l umber products. Attacked with
epilepsy, he was obliged to give up his busi
ness. The attacks came upon him most In
opportunely. One time falling from a carri
age, at another down stairs, and often in the
Istret. Once he fell down a shaft In the
mill, his Injuries nearly proving fatal. Mr.
Gallaher writes from Milwaukee. Feb. 16.,'95.
"There are none more miserable than epi
leptics. For 20 years I suffered with epilep
tic fits, having as high as five in one night. I
Itried any number of physicians, paying to
one alone, adfee of 8500.00 and have done
little for years but search for something to
Ihelp md, and have taken 'all the leading
Iremedies, but received no benefit. A year ago
my son, Chas. S. Gallaher, druggist at 191
Reed St.. Milwaukee, gave me Dr. Miles'
Restorative Nervine, and I tid it with
gratifying results. Have had but two fits
since I began taking it. I am better now in
every way than I have been in 20 years."

The Winnsbor NEWS .ND hERALD,
having seen the "rock man" in Co
lumbia, says it is a question whether
bodies will petrify in our soil. Our
contemporary may be assured that
petrification will take place in our
soil. During the past spring the City
Council of Rock Hill in order to widen
a street required the sexton to disinte.
about one hundred bodies buried in
the pauper portion of our cemetary
and i einter them elsewhere in the
graveyard. In doing so he took up
two bodies-one that of a woman and
the other that of a child-that were
petrified. Both bodies were as white
as chalk and as hand and as heavy as
stone. The coffin in which the
woman's body had been buried had
decayed and in transferring it to
another an arm was ac,identally broken
and the break had all the appear:.nces
of stone.--Rock Hill hlerald.
It is no use to try to have something
that our enterprising sister town Rock
Hill has not got. We know she has
flawing wells, colleges, factories and
enterprises without limit, and now
she comes to the front with petrified
bodies. The "rock man" found n;ear
Columbia was not "As white as chalk,"
but on the contrary was very, very
darl-. Now tell us, brother Hull, was
it the b.>dy of a white man or negro?

)rAgin of the Name "Fortune's Spring
Dr. Morris Moore, of Spartanburg,
nauy years ago wrote for the Yorkville
gnquirer the following incident of
afaette's visit to Columbia in 1824.
1 guard had been placed before the
loor of Lafayette's quarters with in
truc:ions to let no one enter without
ermisfion. An old African, neatly
ressed, came to the door and started
n, but the sentinals interposed their
tayonets to bar his entrance. The old
nan contemptuously pushed them
.side saying, "Pshaw, see guns 'fore
'ou was born; been where they been
hut by soldiers too," and without
urther opposition g+ined his way.
Ie wvent s;raight to the room where
he distinguished guest was stan:ding
n acrowdl a.d cried out, "I camie to

urned, looked at hiin and r'emnarked,
'An old acq'iointance; don't tAlt me
