-Srmtor Tilhnau has introduced a

a pcni'm of fifty dollars per month.
It was stated a short time ago in a
Chester paper that Mrs. Alston was to

A SERIOUS ACCIDENT.
Clarke McCants, son of Mr. and
Mrs. Jie. G. McCants, met with a
serica:: acci:leumt on Tuesday. He and
several other bnys were firing crackers
near- the A R. P. parsonage, and a
large '-racker exploded in his right
band. The force of the explosion was
so great that the first joint of the little
fellow's min~dle finger was blown off,
-the thumb was knocked ont of joint
and (t~e hand was spIl open. The
index finger- was badly hurt also, but
the doctor- hopes tQ be'able to save it.
'1h echild suffering very much from
the wound and shock was taken to a
drug store and received medical atten
tion very promptly, and at last ac
counts he was doing vet y nmcely.

THE PRESIDENT PASSES THROUGH.
The special train carry ing Prcsident
McKinley aud hii party passed through
town on Monday night at about half
past eleven o'clock. It is unforiunate
that the Presidential train should have
passed through at ' ach an unsenson
able hour a a thus prevent our citi
zens from having even a glimpse of
Mr. McKinley. The people of Colum
bia were more fortunate, and not only
had a sight of the President, but were
honored by a little speech from him.
The south-bound train was delayed on
Monday night by having to wait for
the President's train. We hope that if
the President ever passes this way
again it will not be in the dead of night.
All of us would like to have seen Mr.
McKinley and the other distinguisted
men in the party.
Mrs. Michael Curtain, Plainfield,
[Il., makes the statement, that she
caught cold, . which settled on her
lungs: she was treated for a month by
her family physician, but grew worse.
He told her she was a hopeless victim
of consuration and that no medicine
could cure her. Her druggist sug
gested Dr. King's New Discovery for
Consumption; she bought a bottle and
to her delight found herself benefited
from first dose. She continued its use
and after taking sixbottles, found her
self sound and well; now does her
ewn housework, and is as well as she
ever was. Free trial bottles of this

SONG OF FARMER BLUE.
Mir. Editor: I encl:)e ou the "Sorg

real :i.me because he doesn't think
that, as a literary achiievement, it
could contribute to a fame which he
never had. Iu it he has anathematized
nobod-:, slandered nobody, nor said
aught to wound auii body's fcIIhgs.
Yelu can publish it, if you will; if not,
yon can commit it to the voracious
jaws of the relentless waste basket,
But don't, I beseech you, ptch it in
rudely and unfeelinagly, but fold it
with care, and lay it in gently and
reverently, for you know not what
hopes you may thus entomb to -ise
again. "Quoth the raven, ne'crmorc."

Witout a star to guide them o),
