REV T W MELLICHAMP DEAD
Rev. T. W. Mellichamp died while
on a visit to Rev. E. A. McDowell,
lnear Alston, on Saturday. Mr. Melli
Ichamp was born in Charleston in 1817,
and had been a Baptist minister for
iearly sixty years. His ancestors
were French Huguenots. For a nu
er of years he was pastor of
aptist Church at this place. A g
a;nd pious man, his long life has b
most useful one.
His remains were taken to P'
way on Sunday for burial.
Sunday morning the back door to
the dispensary was found broken, and
the presumption, of course, is that
socie one Saturday night or Sunday
morning broke open the door and
entered. A considerable quantity of
whi'ikey ws.stolen by the case. The
lossi is:estimated at $215. This is the
seedpd robbery that has occurred on
Maia street within a week. Evidently
the :burglar at the dispensary was
familiar with the premises as the hole I
in th'p door was made with splendid
accuracy to enable him to remove the
bar. (Then again from the amount
stolen, it is presumed that quite a
number had a hand in it.

INVESTMENT Vs. EXPENsE.

he success of every such undertaking
epends upon whether people consider
the one or the other. As long as
ey look at it as an expense, it is a
eacd issue; as soon as they consider it
n investment, it takes on life and be

rise is purely and wholly an invest

a town issues $40,000 in bonds for

UPPER LONGTOWN BREVITIES.
The community was greatly sad
dened by the death of Mrs. David
Robertson, which occured at her home
in lower Longtown on Monday. The
deceased had been in declining health
for some time. Death, however, came
almost wholly unexpected. Heart
failure was the immediate cause of her
death. The funeral services were
held at the Ridgeway Baptist Church
of which the deceated was a consis
tent member. The funeral services
were conducted by Rev. J. L. Free
man. The remains were carried to
Columbia for interment. Mrs. Robert
s-n was a most estimable Christian
lady -one who will be greatly missed
by , c friends. The deceased leaves
besiWes her husband a daughter, Mrs.
C. lV. Wray, of Ridgeway, to mourn
her loss. We extend our sympathies
to the bereaved ones, and point them
to our Heavenly Father who doeth all
things well and who is able to wipe
away all tears from our eyes,
We had a splendid rain lasc Satur

so well; haven't had euficient

plenty of turnips, lettuce, radiFhes,
onions, etc., ready for table use.
The fruit crop will be smaller than
we expected. We noticed that most
of it has already fallen off the trees;
especially is this the case with cherries
and plums. We suppose that we will
have to fall back on the old stand-by
the blackberry-this year.
Messrs. J. D. Harrison, Wm. Simp
son, A. F. Peay, R. A. Hudson and
T. C. Raines, of Longtown, attended
the reunion in Charleston. Some of

THOSE TAIPINOS ON THE WALL.
I noticed in your last issue
A dandy little rhyme,
Where Billy and his friend U. X.
Passed through a trying time.
My sympathy arose at once,
1 knew just how they felt,
Ive been that road so many times,
And by the same means dealt.
Well, U. X., you and Billy both
Still must be very young
For this to be your irst call ofi'
While ou' to have some fun.
I do bolieve that I could point
To places in this land,
Where the walls are bruised from side
Like footprints in the sand.
Was very much surprised indeed
That you both took the blaes,
Revealing secrets of that night
By putting it as news.
Like you at first I took it to head ,
And always cleared the hall,
But have long since been accustomed
These tappings on the wall.
I know you thought it was a spook
Just inside of the hall;
No danger of your getting hurt
By tappings on the wall.
You've heard them once, will hear
Not everywhere you call.
Take my advIce and bid adieu
By tappings on the wall.
Boys, if those girls you love that
Just make another call,
Then if you leave in time you'll find
No tippings on the wall.
No Biaht to Ugliness.
The woman who is lovely in face,
form and temper will always have
friends, but one who would be attrac

weak, sickly and all run down, she
will be nervous and irr itable. If she
had constipation or kidney trouble,
her impure blood will cause pimples,
blotches, skin eruptions and a wretch

best medicine in the world to regulate
stomach, liver and kidneys and to
purify the blood. It gives strong
nerves, bright eyes, smooth, velvety
skin, rich complexion. It will make a
