richest eitles in tho Union and no

I There is much that is interesting in
(tho history of our colonial and munici

If probable that most of the intcrost
jontros in the personality of the people
themselves. How they lived ; how
thoy enjoyed themselves at their so

their dead, and in what manner they
mourned them. All this bus a living
Interest for us, whoso ancestors thoso
old Charlestonlans were. Their quaint
old tombstones are enough to sot us
wondering] as we stroll through tho
?graveyards of St. Phillip's and the Cir

stately marblo virtuos may bo in sharp
I contrast to thoir pitiful human foot
ings, wo will bo contented to lot tho
ovll be interred with thoir bones, and
-p.-ah of only what Is good and ploas
In the first place be it understood
this papor does not tell of Anto-Hovo
lutlouary Charlostou. Tho customs of
which I write are those of tho 20's and
30's?in faot thoy are written down
just as thoy were told tho writer by a
lady who is, herself, a most lovoly
and obarmlng bit of old Charleston
and a truo type of hor kind. She has
"llvetl moro than hor throe-scoro and
ton years, and yot prosorves hor
brightness, hor elegance and charm of
mannop, and tolls of tho departed days
dfch^f youth with an animation and In
?^wrest that makes it a pleasure and a
privilege to llston to her.
To begin with, tho Charlestonian of
that day was, upon ontorlngjtho world,
received with rojoicing, and all.visitors
woro offered cako and wine whon they
called at thehouso\jUiieh-4JioJilny new
comer had condaiicondod to honof-wlth
its preaonepr xnon, while yet n tender1
made its triumphant entroo
?^Tnto society at its christening, which
was a very imposing and elaborate
coromony. On that grand day all
friends of tho parents woro bidden to
tho uhureh, where tho precious mite
was tho oynosuro of all eyes, and tho
baptismal coromony was gono through
with. Upon returning homo cako and
wine woro again offered to tho invitod
guests who had assembled, or, in somo
oases, a diunor party was givou in
honor of tho infant, especially if it
were a son. Or, if neither of thoso
were done, cuko was sent to friends
and relatives, much us wedding cuko
. Is now.
The toilet of tho infant upon the
baptismal day was very ologant?a
-*~Tong robe, usually of Imported, hnnd
ombroidorcd French muslin, with
dainty shouldor knots of colored rib
bon and confined at tho waist by a
baud of ombroldory, under which
showed ribbon of tho samo color as tho
Shoulder knots. Upon its head was a
tiny cap oloso fitting, (tho closer tho
- '?hotter,) und having around the faco a
full ruohlng of ronl thread laco.
Probably tho most imposing feature
of tho occasion was tho " maumer, "
(tho "dah" was of later origin) in
whose arms tho hero or horoino of tho
occasion was borne. This individual
needs especial mention. Her frock
was, of courso, immaculately neat, and
she woro a great chocked gingham
apron. She would have scorned to ap
pear without a largo and very white
handkorchiof tucked In hor bolt. But
her head-dress ! In thoso days sugar
oamo always In largo loaves, over
which was fitted u pastobonrd cover
ing, very high and round, for tho bet
ter protection of tho sugar. Thoso
coverings woro eagerly seized upon by
tho old maumas (over whose heads
they, exactly fitted) and woro used as
foundations for their head drosses,
which woro bandanna baud kerchiefs
o7 tho most gorgeous colors obtainable,
w- It was often tho case that tho muu
V ma into whoso earo tho little ono was
I given had nursed its fathor or mother
" boforo it?maybe boon maid for ono of
? \its grandmother?, whon both were
tgirls. And novor were children moro
lovingly cared for, moro willingly
Waited upon, than by tho black hands
oi* thoso samo maumas.
And now, supposing the Charleston -
lan iof that day to have to have boon a
gir),\/hon she reached tho proper ago
sho w as sent to an aristocratic school
for young ladies. There woro two of
these, and botwocn them existed a
groat rivalry. Ono was Madumo Tal
vnndo'8, and wus situated at the cor
ner of Tradd and Legare streets in tho
house, which is now tho homo of Judge
si ii.on to ii. Tho other was Miss Dat
ty's, and was kept at one time in Le
garo streot, in tho house, now occupied
by Major Augustino Smythe, and at
another in tho house in Globo street
next but ono to the corner of Wont
worth. Whilo at the latter placo it
was a boarding school, and ono morn
ing thoro was consternation among
toaohors and pupils aliko for whon thoy
arose thoy found that somo miscreant
had during tho night fastcnod ovor the
fate a.sign, upon which was painted
n largo and conspicuous lotters, "Tho
Nunnory of St. Datty."
To this school came girls from all
tho Southern States and ovon from Cu
ba. Ono pupil, a lovoly Cuban, was
stricken with typhoid fovor and died
in a short time. Miss Datty was so
affected by hor sad death that she
gave up her school and joinod tho Sis
ters of Mercy. Whilo cholera was
raging In Charleston sho wo? taken
with the disoaso and died whilo min
istering to the sick and distressed.
Tho marriago customs of thoso days
woro vory much llko our own, oxcopt
that ohurch woddings woro unknown,
. . the marriago taking place at homo,
amidst general rojoleings and festivi
ties. Tho bride's costumo was not of
white silk, as In our time, but moro
frequently of white ombroidorod mus
lin, worn ovor an underslip of whlto
satin. Nor' was tho voll a long ono of
white tulle, but instead scarcely moro
than a yard and a half in length, and
made of thread lace of the very host
quality, and the prlco of tho voll was
enough to tnako us of those degenerate
days gasp broath, slnco a huudrod dol
lars would scarce s nil ice. to purohaso ono
of even,tho most ordinary quality. Up
on her first appournnco at a ball the
bride woro hor wedding dress, and, if it
woro but woro few days aftor tho coro
mony, hor veil also. Tho bridos of
thoso days woro younger thnn now?in

For tho young pooplo thero were
balls and dancos then as now, hut all
tho year evorybody looked forward to
race week. This oamo during tho last
of February, and was tho climax of
festivities boforo tho solemn Lonton

everybody made morry, ovorybody

member of the club who onterod his
horse (tea Tory creme do la orcme of
equine aristocracy, one uud all), had
I <> cites upon its bridle of bio own es- '
peotal color, and the costume of tho
jockey was of tho same color.
The father of Gen. Wade Hampton
always dramed In coats and caps of
elegant mazarluo biuo volvot, while
anotbor gentleman, equally aristocrat
ic but less liberal, dressed his in red
Banncl. Amid the wildest enthusiasm
tho races were lost and woa. Society
during race week was vory gay, often
sovorul balls at private houses taking
place in a single evening, But Tues
day, Wednesday and Friday nights
wore set aside as uloodv engaged. On
Tuesday evening the St. Cecilia ball
took place. Wednesday night was
deloated to the annual suppor of tho
Race Club. At this function the pres
ident of the club was. whether ho
could or not, compelled to sing a song,
,4The nigh Mettle Racer," for tho
benefit of tho assembled company.
Aud on Friday night cumo the race
ball, the crowning event of tho uoason.
Each matron and maid bad a now
gown for the occasion, and tho presi
dent of tho olub too* tho newest bride
into supper. The floor was marked off
Into circles, largo onough to admit of
dancing a cotillion, and In thoso wero
drawn pictures of the favorite racers,
with the winner at tho head. All
those and all the other grand balls and
banquets were held at St. Androw's
Hall, in Broad street. This building
was burned long years ago. It stood
on the lot now owned by Cant. F. W.

And now that wo have heard of the
joys of thoso ancestors of ours, what of
their sorrows ? Alas, tholr funerals
aud their mournings seem quaint to
us, but woro as sadly real to them as
ours uro now.
Immediately upon tho death of a
motubor of the family formal Invita
tions woro sout out to frionds. A
great number of thoso woro invltod
specially as mourners, and for these
groat hoods of black silk, covering
head and shoulders, woro provldod.
Tho Invltod guests, lucluding tho
mourners, (the chiof only of whom
wore admlttod Into tho room with tho
family), raugod themselves around the
rooms In silence, and at last a maid
servant entered bearing a si Ivor tray
piled with sprigs of rusoraury. Thoso
she passed around to tho inournors,
each of whom took a sprig. Tho pall
bearers wero all furnished with sllkon
scarfs?whlto for young persons, black

these woro worn passed ovor one

Thore wero no carriages hired, tho
friends of tho bereaved family always
offering the uso of their vehiclos for
the occasion. In tho funeral proces

of crupo Btroaming from their huts,
tho women with great bead dresses of

There woro no funerals at home, tho

And now wo of tho end of tho cen
tury bavo followed tho Charlostonian
of tho beginning of tho century from
tho cradlo to tho grave, taking a peep
at ull tho Important events of life.
How far off and quaint thoso times
seems ! And yot thuo docs not staud

wo will bo tho grandmothers and great*

"When T was commanding a cavalry

Barleycorn. Did they smile'. It was
tho nearest approach to a laugh that
had boon hoard in that section of the
country for many a day.
" Upon dismounting, all gathered
around my tont. I ontored, grabbed
a tin cup, smiled and turned tho
spigot. But not a drop ran out. I

Tho disappointment was groater than

"Suddenly I turned, saw a soldier
happy in his steadiness, in front of u

that outpost tho only whiskey soon in
two weeks was that which I had re

thoso men had learned of my having

made a conduit fifty feot in longth by

and run the whiskey into thoir own

REPORT ON ANTITOXIN 10.
An Interesting Statement ol'ItH Mnim
f'acturo and Experiments With It,
Frank Mason, United Stato Consul
at Frankfort, has submitted to tho de
partment of States almost interesting
report on antltoxino, tho new curative
for *?r.d ? preventive of diphthoria. Ho
explained that he Is inipnltod to do
this becauso tho subject is about to en
gage the attention of Congress, becauso
of tho largo numbor of Inquiries for
detailed Information concorning anti
toxlne, and because at Frankfort is tho
only establishment where it has been
produced commercially in quantities
adequate, to moot the rapid increasing
demand. He suggests tho early pub
lication of tho roport.
Mr. Mason gives a clear and detailed
description of ovory step in tho process
of production of tho now remedy,
reached by an accurate historical
sketch of its discovery and develop
ment. Tho factory at Frankfort to
which ho rotors is that at tho "Far*
broork at Hecbst-on the-Main." Shoep
and goats, which at first woro ouayloy
ed to produce tho serum, woro discard
ed becauso their tissues woro affected
by tho various foods thoy consumed,
and recourse was had to horses. Tho
establishment now utilizes the blood of
soventy-six horses and has a trained
corps of more than fifty men employed
at this ono work, pro lacing ut present
about 2000 doses per day, and by tho
ond of this month it will supply tho
demand. It is absolutely requislto
that tho horses bo young, vigorous and
physically porfeet, and no racing stud
was over hotter housed, exercised, fed
and (tared. Tho antl-toxino Improves
with age, at least during tho first two
months, und tho German physicians no
longer use it fresh, whon it is apt to
cause skin eruption. Early application,
howovor, is of tho utmost importance.
In soventy-two cases of childron, treat
ed within two days of tho first appear
ance of diphthoria, but two casos wero
fatal, and tho death rato in suoh cases
Is placed at four per cent. In Germany,
where tho fatal cases used to average
sixty por cent and not loss than fifty
thousand llvos woro annually sacrificed
to tho diphthoria scourgo, the mortali
ty has been rcducod to less than ono
fourth, and it will bo still further ro
ducod when tho country physicians
u90 it freoly. A serious opidomio of
diphtheria at Trieste has boon prac
tically mastorcd by untl-toxino.
?A farmor by tbo namo of Brannon,
about eight miles from Spartanhurg,
mado up his mind at tho beginning of
1804 that ho would dovoto ovory Satur
day to markoting eggs and butter. He
started in with forty-oight hous and
two milch cows. Sometimes ho gave
only half a Saturday to selling these

his own table with thcao articlos and
sold what the family did not uso. He
was a one-horse farmor and mado six
bales of cotton, whioh brought him in
about $lf>0. If he had owned ono more
milch cow his butter and eggs would
have made as much as his cot'on crop.

It has been known for some tim?
that Treasurer Taylor was hard
fu'essed. Ho was caught In the Chem
oal National Dank failure at Chicago
for a large amount and he lost $20,000
In tho bank at Mllbank, and $10,000 in
that at Geldsberg, which failed during
the panic. Altogether ho lost $100,000.
Tho first National Dank at Hedfield,
Taylor's bank, closed its doors yester
day. Tho bank is in good condition,
and it is thought will pay all its debts.
The banks atPiorre will not lose any
thing. If the defalcation Is as largo as
the bondsmen bellevo, it will plaee the I
State in a very ombarrassing poBitiou.
No warrants or bonds oan bo sold, and
there is a considerable deficiency in
the revenue. Without this it would
havo been a difficult problem to make
both onds meet; now It is impossible.
Taylor has always hud a roputatlon
as a financier and a man of Integrity.
The school fund may loso $50,000.
Pierre, S. D., Jan. 10.?Later de
velopments show that the defalcation
of Treasurer Tuylor has not been over
estimated. There should havo been
$370.000 In tho treasury. All tho funds
in -sight consist of about $15,000 In tho
December 31, a draft of $35,000 was
gent to Taylor at Now York. Efforts
havo been mado to stop this draft, but
It is thought to be too luto. Tho
Chase National Bank of New York,
whioh holds tho warrants, telegraph
ed yostorday thoy had not boon paid
and that Tayior had not boon seen
tnero for sovorul days.
Advices from Aberdeen uro to tho
offeet that Taylor took a littlo money
with him, but lost It all through his
friends whom ho helped during the fi
nancial panic. When ho wanted tho
monoy returned his friends woro not
able to accomodato him. Amoug tho
persons to whom lie loaned money are
said to bo several Stato officials, and If
criminal prosecutions uro instituted
there will bo some sensational develop
ments boforo the case Is ondod.
Some time ago Taylor wout to Now
York for the purpose of raising funds
to closo his accounts with the State,
but recent advices aro to tho effect
that he was unablo to negotiate a loan
and bo announced his intention of
never returning to Dakoto. His
friend he bitterly approached for not
coming to his aid wncn in need. His
present whereabouts are unknown, but
it is thought ho bos gono to a foreign
country. His bond of $325,000 is said
to bo good, but it will not begin to
covor the amount of shortage as it ap
pears at present. Tho auditor lias
called upon tho county treasurers for
any funds that may bo in their posses
sion, and tho Attorney General has
commenced making preparations for
realizing upon Taylor s bond.
In his mcssago read on Tuesday,
Governor Sheldon eomplimonted the
Treasurer for tho ability and zeal
which ho had shown in tho manage
ment of ills otlicc, but iu a special mes
sage to b3th houses yesterday ho re
quested that thin bo eliminated whon

Tho bank at Kodliold has rocoived
a iottor from Taylor stating that he
loft its matters iu good shape ; that lie
had boon trying to straighten out bis
shortage to tho State, but had failed,
and no ono at Red field or Pierre would
ever sco him again.
Pierre, S. D., Jan. 11.?The Taylor
defalcation still absorbs all tho inter
est at tho capital. Every ono has been
awaiting tho arrival of Ex-Governor
Mellett, who camo in on last evening's
train. Ho is ono of Taylor's bonus*
men. Ho wired from Lafayette, Ind.,
that ho would bo hero last night and
not to begin suit on the bonds, as bo
would'turn over ovoything to tho Stato.
As Lafayotto is the homo of Taylor's
father it is supposed that Mellett
would havo a proposition from tho
bondsmon for some sort of a settlement.
This is not true. Ho comes simply as
an individual and is unable to throw
any direct light on tho situation. Ho
givos somo information, however,
which has changed tho theory on
which tho pooplo here havo been pro
ceeding, namely, that Taylor has boon

CONSTITUTION Ali CONVENTION.
Timely Suggest tons of Hon J. A. ?ligli
in tho Interest of Unity.
Voieo of the People.
I notice that Editor Williams, of tho
Greenville News, proposes a plan by
which tho Reformers and Conserva
tives may bo represented in tho con
stitutional convention according to tho
respeetivo strength of the two factious.
Tho plan looks to tho calling of a mass
meeting In euch county to be composod
of such Reformers und Conservatives
who favor a non-partisan convention.
It is suggested that tho basis of repre
sentation bo mado upon tho compara
tive vote Tillraan and Sheppard re
ceived in 1802, and that tho Reformers
in said . mass meeting nominate, llvo
times tho number of candidates to
which thol?* strength outitles thorn,
and that the Conservatives do likewise,
and that tho Conservatives soloct from
tho nuinbor of Reforraors so nominat
ed tho delegates to which tho Reform
ers arc entitled, and that tho Reform
ers go through tho same process with
the Conservative nominees, and that
tho men so selected bo the candidates
bofore tho August primary. The plan
is very vague us to tho representation
to be given to fractional parts of tho
vote of 185)2.
This plan hns somo things about it
to commend it to every honest man,
but in somo fow particulars it is very
After thinking over tho matter care
fully and desiring to see fair play
among both factions of the Democratic
party aud the convention composed of |
tho best, truest and most patriotic
men in tho State, 1 beg to submit tho
following suggestions for tho consider
ation of tiie pooplo of Nowborry Coun
ty, as li plan for the county :
1st. Lot a mass meeting, such as is
contemplated by the Greovillo News,
be ealloil to meet in February or March
next. To put a head to such a moot
ing and to give order and systom
to it, it might be well to ask tho Coun
ty Democratic Executlvo Committee
to make the call and to allow from
each Domocratlc olub double tho re
presentation it had in tho last county
convention. This would mako quite a
representative body, and in muny re
spects would bo moro just than a more
mass meeting of olths >ns picked up
hero and everywhere.
2d. Lot the mass meeting or conven
tion when assembled agreo to propor
tion out the delegates to bo olectcd to
tho convention according to tho voto
given by each faction to Tillman and
Sheppard in 18i>2.
3d. Let tho Reform dologates pres
ent nominate live times the nuinbor of
men to which they uro entitled in tho
convention and tho Conservatives do
the same, and then let these same Re
form delegates solect by a majority
ballot from among tho wholo number
of candidates so nominated their pro
rata share of tho dologates, and the
Conservatives to do likewise.
As Now berry Count y will havo four
delegates in tho constitutional conven
tion, and as tho Reformers are justly
entitled to two of tho four, according
to tho basis proposed, und tho Conserva
tives to ono, lot tho faction having a
majority of tho factional voto bo allow
ed tho fourth delegate. Thus in this
voto of 1802, upon which wo propose
to base tho representation. Tillman
received out of 2,022 votes 1,190, and
Sheppard 832. Tho 2,022 votes cast
give one dolegato to every 505 votes.
The two Reform delegates absorb'1,010

The only hope that those people hav
of succeeding in this, is a division

I hope that thero is uo Reformer In
Nowherry County who is unwilling f
