'The young ladies of the lion-Ton
Club wore inspired with the happy
idea of uniting pleasure with patriotism
on Thursday evening. An entertain
ment was given by them at the home of
M iss Mary Gavrott in honor of Wash
ington and the OCCason was made as
novel as it was enjoyable by t he quaint
costumes and powdered hair of a cen
tury back. If any of those present
were sceptical as to how good looks
were possible for our ancestors in their
fearful and wonderfully contrived
habiliments their doubts were dis
pelled on Thursday ovonlllg. However,
it should be added that it was sug
gested that the usual order was re
vorscd and that tho Laurens young
people were equal to tho occasion and
became the costumes.
A Virginia Keel was appropriately
chosen as the oponing feature of tin
entertainment and then the germau
bogan, to continue, witli an intermis
sion for refreshments and a game of
cards for those who cared to play,
until an early hour when "Home, Sweet

Presentment of Iii? Grand
Tho Grand Jury submit tho following
report. We respectfully Htute that wo
have endeavored to faithfully discharge
tho duties devolving upon us, without
partiality or favor, as Grand Jurors:
1st. Wo have visited tho Poor House
by committee. Wo lind that there aro
thirteen inmates in tho same?sovon
whites and six colored, all well eared
for by our worthy Steward. Wo find
that there arc some slight repairs need
ed on tho promises, which we recom
mend as early as possible.
2d. We next visited the Jail which
WC lind neatly and well kept. Tho
same needs repairs, the roof being un
sound. Wo recommend that another
story be added, with cells fitted up in
same, in order that prisoners may not
communicate with each other. Wo
find in the debtors room that the over
head coiling is unsafe, a portion of
which is gone. We recommend it bo
attended to immediately. We further
recommend that the ventilation in dun
geon be enlarged for the health of tho
prisoners conn nod therein. Wo also
Und some slight repairs needed on out
buildings. We have been informed by
tho Sheriff that the buildings are not
insured. Wo urge the nocossltyof the
same at once. Wo recommend all pris
oners confined in the county jail to be
brought to speedy trial in cases where
the evidence is InsulHolont to sustain
tho charge, the prisoner bo role;; ed on
his own recognizance and not conti nod
In jail at the expense of the County.
Wo make special mention of Wade
Robortson who has been confined in
jail for nearly one year, embracing
three terms of court, and lias been re
turned to jail to await July term of
court, thereby Incurring a further ex
pense to the County.
:>d. We have inspected the various
county offices and find them in good
condition, except those of I'rebate
Judge and Clerk of Caurt. Wo llnd the
papers are being destroyed by rats, and
therefore recommend the purchase of
three hundred tin boxes for the protec
tion of tho same.
1. The attention of our County Com
missioners was called to tho Drainage
Act in reference to the entire County.
Cane Creek was especially mentioned
as being in a very bad condition there
by rendering tho lands along tho same
untenable, besides making it unhealthy
to residents along its course. Our com
missioners issued orders for the ob
structions to be removed from said
slroum. Except in a fow Instancos
their order has been ignored. We
urge that they take legal steps at once
to have the obstructions removed from
said stream and all Other streams in
our County. Our County Commission
ers "have been remiss in their duty in
certain portions of our County, vi/.:
Dial, Sullivan. Cross Hill. Waterloo
and Laurons Townships. Complaint
having been made to US from the above
mentioned Townships, that the public
highways In places are in bad condl
l ion also small bridges on the same are
mere traps, wo recommend that thoy
use terracotta Instead of small wooden
bridges In such place's. Wo arc pained
to stale that there is a portion of the
road live miles from this place, leading
to Cross Hill, impassable: the traveling
public being forced to trospass upon
the private property of individual., in
order to get to the County seat. The
attention of which lias boon called to
one of our present board of commis
sioners more than once. We ask that
the same be put In good condition at
once or show cause why the same
should not be done.
W e would ask for an export to ex
amine the books of tho various olHcoS
of the COUbty with us in order that the
same may be done IntolligontHy, of
which we will i*$norl at tho July term.
[n conclusion tho Grand Jury would
ox to nd to your Honor tho highest ap
preciation of tho klndnoss shown them,
all Of which is respect fully submitted.

To FOOT STOCKINGS.
Here is a good way in foot stockings.
Taking tho worn-out sock, fold it on the

way between the two edgos, out oil' the
under part, then cut open tin- heel
seam, ami spreading nut the part cut
away from the stocking, make a paper
pattern from which to cut out a new
bottom of cloth. Fold this together
in the middle and stitch together tho
rounded edgOS for a new heel, then,
unfolding, stitch tho new bottom into
the stocking, holding the former to
ward you, as on account of the room for
seam and shrinkugo, which of course,
was allowed in cutting the pattern, it
will be larger than the stocking.
Woolen or cotton stockings past wear
ing should not be thrown a v. ay. as
often one pair is useful in mending all
care of Curtains and Portiere?.
When any cleaning or sweeping is in
progross the hoavy curtains and por
tloros should be removed, and after
being thoroughly brushed and shaken
should be be allowed to hang in the
air until the rooms art'ready for their
return, write- ,lames Thomson in a
very practical article . "Artistic Door
ways and Windows." in the March La
die.' I Ionic Journal. Heavy hangings
will absorb the odor from cigar smoke
or from any food which may be cook
ing, and the groatcst care should
therefore bo taken thai they be kept
well aired. The doorway curtains may
be so easily removed and placed in po
sition again that there should be no
oxeuso for any unpleasant odor being
attached to them.

found his gun unloaded, though being

to be a very small dog that had gained
entrance and was helping himself to
whatever suited his taste best. And
while Joe proceeded to dispell the un
welcome visitor he positively refused
to go, and showed a disposition to de
fend himself. Joe not caring to engage
in a personal encounter, and realizing
his position, started around the table,
