We are again called on to record an
other sad death. On Saturday a week
ago the fourteen year old son of Mr. t
Miles Hawkins, near St. Luke's, while
cutting stove wood, accidentally struck
his foot a heavy blow with an axe, which
severed the great toe and part of the
foot, with the exception of a small part
of the skin at the bottom of the foot.
Mr. Hawkins placed the severed part
back and bound the foot as best he
could, and summoned a physician. The
judgment of the physician was, that
amputation of the foot was necessary, t
but at the earnest solicitations of the
family the physician desisted and sewed
the parts together. The boy apparently
was doing well for nine days, even on
Sunday last was in a playful mood, not t
complaining of any pain at all. On
Monday, however, symptoms of titanus
were visible, and yesterday evening
(Tuesday) he died in great agony. The
family have our deep sympathies in this
Mr. J. S. Wheeler's picnic on last
Friday, was really an enjoyable affair.
The students all acquitted themselves
with credit, both to themselves and
their instructor. A dinner contisting of
the good things which you always find
in that section, and for which it is es
pecially proverbial, was set ved to every
body present, and was enjoyed to a de
gree approaching perfection. In fact,
the local of the Press and Reporter wvould
tell you that the eating was perfect.
Addresses were made by Rev. John D.
Bowles and C. F. Boyd. Dr. C. T.
Wyche wvas called upon to address the
audience ; lie took the stand, but as he
was introducing his subject, with a quo
tation from Gray's E leg:., unfortunately,
(or fortunately, we don't know which)
for the Dr., a young lady in thme audi
ence fainted, and he was called on to
treat her professionally. This broke up
the Dr's. speech business. He soon1
found that there 'Evas more money in
treating a sick lady than there was in
speech-making. Do not underst and us
to say that the young lady fainted from
the effects of the Dr's. speech-it was
from being densely packed in a close
school room. .Exeunt.
We are pained to chronicle the death
of Mr. Luther Harmon, which occurred
last week in the upper part of Lexington
County, under very sad circumstances.
Mr. Harmon had been for a long time
digging, or rather blasting a well,
having struck a hard rock about two
feet from the surface, and thence
he had to use powder and dynamite
freely. He had reached a depth of
abotitf5 feet, and we suppose that from
descending and ascending so very fre
quently he had become callous to
the attending dlangers, using neither
bucket or tub in being let down or
drawn up, simply placing his foot in a
loop of the rope. In this wvay lhe was
being drawnt up on last Tuesday, when
in a few feet of the top, his foot either
slipped from the loop or lie was taken
with a fainting spell with w~hich lie was~j
sometimes affected, and precipitated to
the bottom of the wvell. His body doubt
less struck the rough and jagged rocks
in its descent until it finally struck thme
rocky bottom with a dull, heavy thud at
the feet of his companion and all was
over. Mr. Harmon wvas about 40 years
old. He leaves a wife (the third one)
and six children to mourn his unexpect
ed and tragic death. Mr. Harmon will
be greatly missed by all who knew him.
IHe possessed in a remarkable degree the
virtue of doing good to others, and
seemed never so well satisfied as when
doing a kindness to others and in sup
plying the wants of the needy. Peace
to his ashes. M1. L4. W.

lecorated with cedar and cvergreens, r
vhich from a distance put forth a b au f

ront of this platform for the accommo

clock a. m. the exercises were opened
vith prayer by the Rev. J. D. Bowles,
vhich was followed with interesting v
peeches and dialogues by the scholars.

in that Indian mound, and, as I said be
fore, your naturalist and the rest cf us
had discussed the thing together and lie
had given full directions how the thing
should be done scientifically and not
make anybotch job of it; so his faithful
lieutenants marshaled their hosts on
last Saturday and commenced the siege.
Smith was first on the ground, but was
soon joined by his faithful seconds, Hol
loway and Reid, and then operations
commenced; and as they progressed the
yeomanryand the beauty, as well as the
matrons around, camne on the.scene with
fishing tackle and well filled baskets
and the little fellows- of the neighbor
hood, they were there, and how they d.d
enjoy it. They fished, they played on
the beautiful meadow near at hand
(known as the "Simkins n:eadows''),
and all listened and lived, as it wvere, in
a state of anxiety, expecting every muo
ment to hear Capt. S. or some of his
lieutenants shout that they had found,
they knew not what, but somiething
a dead Indian's bones, bows, arrows,.
spear heads, pots of rare gems, or some
thing, they couldn't conjecture what.
At last they heard the cry, and every
thing went in a regular 01(1 "rebel run"
right on to the fort. One of the young
idies outstripp)ed all the rest anid se
cured the relic-the top part or rim of
an old earthen vessel like a pot. This
made all expect more; but tinme rolled
on ond the n ork progressed, but alas!
no more relics.
Dinner was rprecad and sonic of the
young gents from Chappells amppeared
on the ground, and things got lively for
awhile; all enjoyed dinner, and none, I
reckon, moure so than those fellows who
had been digging in that mound-but
that dinner treshened them up and they~
got at it again with more hope and great
expectations, but as they found no more
relics the relic hunters began to dis
perse and all went home, fully satistied
that there was nothing in that Indian
mound; except Capt. S., and he will
have to again confer with your city's
natur:alist, and then lhe will determine
whether he will again tackle it.

One of our young merchants has'given
he following testimony:
"One of my customers, at the age of
ifteen, had a severe attack of rheuma
.i=n. His father had to lift him about.
Ie was i bed for six weeks. I sold him A
dozen bottles S. S. S., which entirely
uretd him. I regard S. S. S., as very
)otent in rheumatism."

THE DARKEST HOUR.
For a period of four years I've been a
-ictim of a very severe and agonizing
ase of Salt Rheume, which affected my
rands to such an extent that they al
aost'became a burden.
My hand became raw and horrifying,
ompelliiig me to keep it coveied all the
I've spent hundreds of dollars for va
ions preparations, but itstead of bene
itting my condition, they all seemed to
timulate and encourage the progress of
he miserable disease, until I had about
;iven up all hope.
But thank heaven, "the darkest hour Of
just before day," and I am rejoiced to
:now that a positive cure has been found.
vhich is known as B. B. B.-Botanic
My family all rejoice at its magical
urative powers in giving me relief. My
tand has been cured and resembles a
urnt surface after being healed over,
aore than anything else. It has also G
ured my two children of a loathesome
orm of Itch which had resisted all pre
ions treatment. I refer to any business L
ouse in Moody and to Thomas Payne,
)ruggist, of whom I purchased the
oods. Signed. W. A. BRYANT.

FLESH SLOUGHING OFF IN PIECES.
For two years I have been confined to
ed with a loathsome form of Blood
'oison, which had about eaten me up,
nd I and others had no hope of a re

ralk, sit down, nor lie down, only in
isery as my flesh seemed to be falling G
ft my bones in pieces as big as a hen
gg. My appetite was lost, my bones R
ched and*pained me, and friends even 4
hunned me. I used various blood pu- o
ifiers without benefir, and several pihy
icians treated me until large sums of
noney had been expended, but not one
>article of good did any one give me.
