We regret to learn of a painful acci
dent met with by Mr. A. W. Toague,
tho son of Mr. A. Wash ToagU0,a promi
nent citizen of this county. On Friday
afternoon tho young man with other
Eurman students was returning to
Contral, where they were to take the
train, from a game of ball played at
Clemson. The wagon broke .down and
they were obliged to walk the remain
der of tho way. Young Toague,
slightly in advance of his companions,
fell In tho darkness into a railroad cut,
striking his head on a ei'OSStto, and was
picked up senseless. He was carried
in an unconscious state to Greenville
and tho last Intelligence was that he
hac! not been restored to consciousness.
Since the above went into type wo
have favorable news of Mr. Toague.
We call to the attention of tho voters
in the county the fact that, the new
system of "County Government" goes
into operation January 1st, 1805. It
abolishes the Hoard of County Com
missioners and substitutes a "County
Supervise." t herefor. The. Supervisor
is to be elected at the general election
in November. The Supervisor for
Luurona gots n salary of six hundred
dollars, and gives a bond of live thous
and conditioned for the faithful dis
charge of his duties. He with a board
of township commissioners consisting
of three from a township and appointed
by the Governor have control of
roads, bt'idgos and ferries and all li
nanoial affairs of tho county. The Act
provides for letting out the working
and repairing of roads and bridges by
contract and anyone liable to duty can
compound by paying two dollars, and
reduces the number of days for work
to six. These are p -eminent provisions
of the Act and we only rogl'Ot that we
have not space to givo the Act In full,
ft is a most important change in county
government and revolutionizes our
whole system. Wo call attention to it
now that our voters may cast about
them for an ofllclont person to exercise
the Important ofllce In tho discharge
of which till fool a deep interest.

How to catch a Fowl.?Few per
sons know how to secure a fowl to ad
vantage Never seize a fowl by the
tail, if a line bird, nor touch the back,
but grasp both legs at once with a firm,
tight, quick hold, and then raise free
from the ground or porch and'hang the
body down clear of any obstacle. This
method does not rullle the plumage or
turn a feather, which in a line bird
must bo avoided. When tho web of
the feathers is once; broken It can
never be united again, and where
much handled this often occurs, giving
to the bird a ragged appearance. It is
the source of much annoyance to a
nice idean, smooth bird to have the
plumage milled. Their bodily cover
ing is regarded with the utmost care,
und tho luster and beauty of it indicate
the health and strength of the fowl.?

The Rothschild Influence.
The accession of Lord Rosobory to
the premiership of the British empire
increases the prestige of tho famous
banking house of Rothschild. Lord
Rosebery has been identified with the
latter ever since, his marriage with
Miss Hannah Bothsohild. Sho be
queathed to him her vast fortune when
she died, but it remains in the hands
of tho Rothschild linn. Not a dinner
party does he give but that one of tho
Rothschilds is present, and Iiis politi
cal power and social prestige are in
creased a hundredfold by the knowl
edge that he bus at his back tho inex
haustible resources of the Rothschilds,
who control the finances of nearly
every continental country. At Paris
they have one of their coreligionists
und adherents, M. Raynal, who is min
ister of tho interior and possessed of
the most extensive executive power in
Prance. In Italy It is one of their race
again, Signer Sonnino, who is minister
of the treasury. At Vienna and at
Pesth their word is law at the ministry
of finance. At Brussels King Leopold
does nothing without consulting M.
