The State Hospital for the Insane is
already overcrowded, and only the
worst patients are at present being re
ceived. It seems that at the next ses
sion of the General Assembly an appro
priation for the purpose of providing
additional quarters will be necessary in
order to provide for many. who are now
seeking admission. Properly to care
for its helpless citizens is one of the
highest duties of a State, and one which
South Carolina has ever recognized.

Rev. J. J. Long preached at Colony
last Sunday. We are proud to know
that Rev. Long has accepted a call and
will in a short while become our pastor.
We are thankful to say that we have
always been successful in getting good
preachers. We believe that Rev. Long
will not only make us a good preacher,
but also a good pastor.
Everything possesses a certain
amount of knowledge, and dogs are no
exception. And it is not everything
that wears the biggest head that has
the most sense. You all know that pug
,iogs have very short heads. One of
them manifested his knowledge by
showing a dislike for country life. Last
week one was brought from town to the
country, a distance of nine miles, to a
neighbor boy, who had been wanting a
pug dog for some time. After the little
dog was put down in the yard, it went
into the house, looked around for about
an hour, and then freed itself from
country life, by taking leg bail. Eddie,
you can find your pug at its old home in
town with Mr. Jones.
We. are informed that Rev. Prof. W.
K. Sligh will preach at Mr. Mid Griffin's

We learn that we were mistaken in
saying that Mrs. Francis Wise, de
ceased, was a member of Bachman
Chapel church. She was a member of
We attended the burial and funeral
services of Mrs. Polly Epting which
took place at St. Paul's, as was men
tioned in my last letter. The large con
gregation present showed the high es
teem in which the deceased was held.
Her age was 48 years, 4 months and 29
days. She was the mother of seven
children of which two have preceded
her to the spirit land, one a grown- son
who died while in service in the Spanish
war. Rev. J. A. Sligh, her pastor,
made a very touching and sympathetic
talk, after which Rev. Lutz, of Pros
perity, preached an appropriate sermon.
The whole service was a message of
consolation and comfort. The deceased
was a woman who possessed some very
noble traits in.life. She was a business
woman, always faithful, not only to her
domestic duties, but was also active in
any other business matters pertaining
to the church, or public good of her
county. ~While we weep with the
broken-hearted family, and know that
she will be greatly missed, yet we are
proud to be able to speak of her as we
do. Dear sisters of the living, now is
the time to let your light shine, that
when you die the same may be said of
It almost looks like threshing old
straw to have anything further to say
about the primar y. But we are going
to be brief by saying that we are proud
the storm is over, and the minds of the
people are cooling down, and-so far as
Newberry County is concerned, she has
made a good selection, and the offices
of the county will be well cared for in
the hands of our newly elected officers.
After all the scuffling around there have
only been a few changes made. As to
the members of the general assembly,
they have only swapped Mr. Dominick
for Mr. Aull. Mr. Dominick made us a
good officer, but we feel sure that Mr.
Aull will do the same. We can say the
same of Messrs. Hodges and Wilson.
They are both good men and fully com
petent. This was about all the swap
ping that was done. But here comes
old Sam Moore and beats the whole
shooting match. He takes Mr. Floyd's
place, but Mr. Floyd wasn't running
fr that office, so you can't call that a
swap. So we all have a right to feel
proud of our officers. They are all good
men, and as I said, will take good care
of our public interests.
Mr. Perry Halfacre ginned 24 bales
of cotton on one gin last Monday. Who
can beat this? This great big rush at
Perry's gin don't mean a big crop, or
anything of the kind, it only means the
right kind of a man with a first-class
gin. It would be a great blessing if we
had a county full of men like Perry
