A cycloue struck tie place of J. P.
Mahou, one uile and a half north of
Newberry, between 11 and 12 o'clock
on Wednesday, the 3d. His baru and
stables were demolished and the wreck
strewn to the winds. The roof of his
residence was blown off and the chini
neys twisted off'-one of them crushed
through to the sitting room on the first
floor. The house is otherwise badly
Mrs. Mahon and the children had
come to town an hour or two before
the storm, driving the horse and buggy
which had stood in the stable that the
cyclone destroyed. Mr. Mahon was
not at home.
Section Master IWatts was working
with a force of hands on the C., N. &
L. Road near Pool's brickyard when
the cyclone came along. He took
refuge under the brick sheds. He and
others who saw the cyclone describe it
as the familiar funnel-shaped cloud,
denseley black with a fiery tinge, and
with a whirling motion and a terrible
roaring sound, making destructive work
of everything in its path.
Just across the road from Mr. Ma
hon's, the cyclone struck the place of
Mr. W. B. Aull, its course being be
tween his d welling and the steam mill.
Mrs. Aull was in the dining room
when she heard the roar of the cyclone.
She started in the house to close the
front door. She was blowu down agaust
the railing of the back porch and had
to be extricated. She was severely
bruised above the eye and her arm was
slightly injured. -
The tin roof of the mill was rolled oft
like a scroll, and a portion of the wall
twisted out of the engine room. The
gin room was also damaged and the
The cyclone is next heard of five
miles in an easterly direction, where it
struck the place of Asa Oxner. The
second story of his residence was blown
off and six outbuildings completely
Mrs. Oxner and the children were in
the house when the cyclone struck it.
Her daughter Maggie, about fourteen
years old, ran out of the house and was
slightly injured by the fallng timbers.
It was a miracle that she escaped alive.
The stove room was blown down while
dinner was being prepared. The cook,
a negro woman, got out of the wreck
Four colored persons on Mr. Oxner's
place were injured-one quite seriously,
but none fatally.
Mr. Caleb Buzhardt came to town
just as soon as the cyclone had passed
and wired a message about the cyclone
to Mr. Asa Oxner, who is a fireman on
the R. & D. passenger. He got home
the same night to see his place in ruins.
One tenant house on the place had
four rooms. Its destruction was com
plete, not one tim.ber being left. The
occupants had all their furniture,
clothing and provisions blown away.
Trees were twisted off just above the
ground and all the feathers were
blown off the chickens.
The path of the cyclone was about
100 yards wide.
No other damage has been reported
except on the place of Col. J. C. S.
Brown, where the cyclone damaged
his carriage house and blew down

A cyclone struck the St. Philips sec
tion on Wednesday, the 3d instant.
It seems that no one suffered from the
effects except Mr. Bob Sligh and one
of his tenants. It blew down the
house of Judge Cooper, colored, and
carried him a distance of seventy-five
or a hundred yards. The negro says
he was almost blind for a short while,
but received no serious injury. The
principal part of Mr. Sligh's out build
ings was blown down. [But a large
part of old Cannon's Creek Alliance
members met at once and showed that
never-failing kind spirit to Mr. Sligh
that they always show to a brother in
need. They replaced his building
except the negro house-and made
him up some money besides.] The
wind came down at or near this point
and evidently went up again. So we
have heard of no further damage.
Mr. Editor, please give us a copy of
the Constitution of the Democratic
party of South Carolina. This will tell
who are true Democrats and who are
not. It seems that you missed the
point I was driving at. I did not
mean to put in any defense for Messrs.
Latimer, Strait and McLaurin, for
they are fully able to defend them
selves. The Bible says, first cast the
mote out of thine own eye, before thou
canist see clearly to plu-k the~ beam out
of thy brother's eye. If those who
were at the head of blkbklisting Lati
mer, Strait and McLaurin did not vote
for H.askell, were the not in sympathy
with the movement just the same?
Then why should they criticise a set
men's ,gemocracy when they- are
equally as guilty. Mr. Editor, I am
willing- to take you up now at your
own offer. Let's talk about farming,
and other things of interest, at least
awhile, and let old Polly take care of

ne;day's cyclone. The dark and angry
cloud in the Southwest swept over us
with a roaring soun, but was fortun
ately too high to do much injury. The
foice of the ur-der current toppled a
chimney or two in Mr.Wm. Pitts- yard
(left Atanding from a fire), also the
-tove-roon chimney. It then swept
away the chimney of Mrs. Halfacre's
cook-room, crushed her front fence and
the front fence of Mr. J. C. Perry, and
uprooted an oak tree in his back yard.
The tree fell in 'front of the kitchen,
barely 'grazing the roof. A colored
woman had but jast stepped into the
door when the tree fell behind her. A
narrow escape. Mr. T. M. Roebuck's
fence was also shattered and Mr.W.W.
Fulmer lost fruit trees. These places
were in a group, covering a space of 80
yards. Fortunately the course of the
storm was to the north of Mr. Perry's
place and through unobstructed fields.
We have great cause for thankfulness
that our section has suffered compara
tively so little from these dreadful visi
tants. Our heartfelt sympathies go out
to the sufferers elsewhere.
We were much interested in the
newspaper accounts of the " John
Bull" train-tb.e quaint little engine
that ran early in the thirties-with its
stage-coach-like cars, and its crew of
veteran railroaders, on the way to
Chicago; also of the magnificent naval
pageant in Hampton Roads, where be
tween 20 and 30 of the massive and
majestic men-of-war'of the leading na
tions had come into our peaceful wa
ters to join our own formidable navy
in a display the like of which had not
been seen on so grand a scale; of the
thundering salutes fr6m the cannon of
these armour-plated vessels as admirals
naval etiquettr -would visit each-other
in their gigs and launches; the dining
of 700 foreign officers in our sumptuous
ships-said. officers richly attired in
uniforms ablaze with 'gold-lace, gilt
buttons, ensignia and side -arms; the
brilliant settings of the tables, the dain
ty meats, fragrant wines, etc.; the fiash
ing search-light on the water at eve
ning, its effulgent flood illuminating
everything like day; the "criss-cross
ing" of the signal lights; the parade
and gorgeous display of bunting, as the
flags of all nations fluttered from yard
arm, mast head and halliards; and the
passage of the President, aboard the
Dolphin, through the double line -of
ships which saluted him with deafen
ing guns in quick succession. The
whole forming a succession of scenes
of unparalleled splendor.
We were talking with a bright little
girl the other day about the many.
interesting happenings in our country
in -the opening of Columbian year.
She listened with apparent pleasure
and then made reply. ''Is it possible'
