The interest of \Y. A. Edwards in

Stiles R. Mellichnmp, who hus now
become sole proprietor. Mr. Ed
wards contiutics as publisher and ad
vertising contractor and will in n<>
way abate his zeal for the continued
prosperity of the paper.
For the general accommodation of
onr subscribers we have determined
to change the day of publication of |
the Times from Fritlay to Thursday
hereafter. I oder mir present mail
arrangements the paper gets to some
of our subscribers when it is several
days old. This is especially the
case with persons living on either
aide of the Iiarnwell and Aiken lines,
whose mail reaches them from points
on the Augusta brauch <>f the S. O.
R. R. By the change all will get the
paper fresh and newsy, aud we hope
to see many additions to our sub
Glorious sunshine again.

The Grand Jury Report, besides
what we have already mentioned else
where, contains complaints as to the
condition of the Poor House. The
inmates arc represented as needing
more clothing, and the cook has liren
recommended for discharge for ap
propriating the provisions for private
use. It is also recommended losel]
the Poor House farm. All the differ
ent public offices were visited and re

ceptiou of better furniture being
needed for sonic of them.
We had the pleasure on Christmas
Eve of attending a most interesting
Christnvis tree celebration at Jami
son's under the Hiispiees of the ex
cellent Sunday School of which Mr.
K. II. Kiley is Superintendent. After
speaking by the Superintendent and
a visitor, the glittering Christmas
gifts on the tree were distributed to
Lhn expectant assembly, both little
and big. Nor in the general distri
tuition, was it forgotten to make the
editor's heart happy too by a very
acceptable present. This Sunday
School is well conducted and in fine
? onditiou. Long may it prosper.
A species of bitterness and factious
opposition is exhibited iu some parts
of our County by the colored people
which I he sooner they give up the bet '
tor it will be for them. In some places
it is reported li- :' .hey .are keep
ing their children from the schools
provided for them by the Democratic
administration from political stuborn
ik-hs. We would only say to the col
j ored people that the waters of educa
tion arc freely offered to whites and
blacks alike, and he who refuses to j
drink will have none but himself to
blame. The Democratic parly will
do its duty fully ami fairly to all.
We are glad to welcome our young
friend, Mr. Stielten Bull, back to bis
obi home after several years in Ala !
baina, where he had gone in pursuit I
of business. He is now ogagod
with tho prosperous house of d. (.'.
Pike, Esq., iu our town. It J
pleases us to see that Mr. Bull litis
established the reputation abroad
that In- has always enjoyed at home:
for thrill and integrity, as the fol
lowing extract from a no: ice of him I
in the ??Herald and Times" of Union
Springs. Ala., shows:
"Mr. Hull has made a great many
fricuds and acquired an excellent
reputation ::' a business man. The
wishes of his friends go with him fori
iiis happiness ami prosperity in his
new Held of labor."
Our eitizenn have been shocked by
the sudden death on Monday night
of M r. .lohn Addon from paralysis of I
the heart. Mr. Addcu was on old and !
highly respected merchant and un
asumiug of manner and ?t man of the
strictest business integrity. In his
dealings with men he impressed upon j
all a senst* of the honesty of his heart ?
and the kindness of bis disposition.
He was sin active jpcinber of the Luth
eran ( lunch. 11) his death, the com
muuitv has lost a useful oitiy.cn, the
church t; devoted member, and his
family a loving father and husband.
His funeral services were performed
at the Lutheran Church on Wednes
day morning by Ucv. J. F. Kiser a
large number of citizens attending to
pay the last tribute of respect to his
memory. Our heart felt sympathies
are extended to the bereaved family.
We have been furiiishedby Secreta
ry Kirk Uobinson with an account ol
the proceedings of the Patrons and
Farmers -Mutual Aid Association at
their anurital meeting last Saturday,
dun. Is'.. President W. F. Bar
ton made his annual report able re
counting t he t rausact ions of i be year.
He gives the encouraging information
that ?'there has been a steady increase
in membership." He says "we now
number lU2,au increase of 214 during
the. year, giving a mortuary premium
of $11U(>." lie recommends that ef
forts bo made to increase the mein
bcrship, until the mortuary premium
reaches$1000. The Association has
been called on for two mortuary as
sessments during the year. The one
on Mrs* Lou Fehler has been prompt
ly met, and the other on Mr. I). W.
Sncll, although so recent, is being
promptly paid in. The advantage of
the mutual insurance plan over the
stock plan is shown by ih<> President
in the recital of the failures of slock
companies, the most recent and prom
inent of which is the Piedmont, and
Arliugtou Company,while no failures
have occurcd in mutual companies.
He also sets forth that itis the cheap
est us well :ts the safest mode. Treas
urer YY. Sj. Marlon's report of the fi
nance* shored the Association to be
in sound condition. President
Barton declined n: election and Mr.
II. L. Rickcnhackcr was unanimously
elected in his place. The remaining
olllcers were re-elected.
The Court of Geueral Sessions whs
convened here on Monday by his
honor.Judge T. J. Muckay. It was
generally expected that (Jeorge Boli
ver, the former clerk, would appear
and contest, the ollice before Judge
Mackcy. He however did not present
his ease, either in person or by attor
uey,aud Mr. RohinsoU, the Democrat
ic Clerk, proceeded with his business
undisturbed. Uit Tuesday the Grand
Jury presented Mr. Boliverfor indict
ment for failing to turn over the
books papers A'C, pertaining to the
Clerks ollice to his successor Mr
Kohin.-oii. I;poll this presentment
a lu nch warrant was issued, and Mr.
Boliver was brought, into Court to
show, caiise for his conduct, and to
answer the indictment, which accord
ing to the statutes of I.805. renders
him liable to a line of If 1000 and one
year imprisonment. Bail was there
fore fixed at $1000, and Mr. Boliver
upon notification, deposited $1000
cash sis security for appearance when
the case is tried, which was set for
Boliver claims that he was ousted
from the ollice by force, and that he '
did not turn over because he was elec
ted his ow n successor. Outside of
this political matter, there was noth
ing of importance before Court,
dames S ist iu nk and A roil Clover col

cotton from Mr. Oliver Faruum,
