THURSDAY, AUGUST 18,1881.
A rumor prevailed while the Presi

intended to attack the prison and
lynch Guittcau. Precaution was im
mediately taken to strengthen the
guard, but bo far no attempt has been
Ou Tuesday morning the news
spread that the President was dying,
and ever since the dispatches from
the White House have been watched
with anxiety. The condition is in
deed fearful, and it would not sur
prise us to hear the worst at auy
moment. His stomach has become
so delicate and nauseated that it re
fuses to hold nourishment. He ia
extremely weak, restless and suffering
from irritation nud bed-sores. The
physicians arc reticent, and nppar
ently trying to conceal the true state
of the case from the public; We can
see no wisdom in this course. It does
good neither to the physicians, the
path lit, nor the prblie. Wc enter

If there is anything that impresses

and resources of the Democratic
party. Let os be careful not to take

let us not eudaugcr the life of the par

Agricultural Society meeting.
On last Saturday morning, the Agri
cultural Society met at the Fair
Building according to previous j.p
pointment. The President beting
absent, Vice President John C. Hoi
man called the meeting to order and
presided. Mr. W. T. M?ller was*ap
pointed on the Immigration Commit
tee in place of Hon. Samuel Dibble
resigned. The exciting question of
the "Pence Law" was thou taken up.
Several speeches were made, which,
not being present, we arc unable to
report. The spirit of the meeting
was altogether in favor of the "stock
law," as is shown by the following
resolution offered by Mr. Jude
Robinsou, which was passed without
"As it is the unanimous sentiment
of this Society, to do away with the
present old fencing system, and have
no fence, except for fencing iu stock;
Resolved, That our mem hers of
the Legislature be requested to use
all the means in their power to have
the ' iN'o Fence" law passed as a
State measure; aud, if this fail, to
uae their efforts to have it passed for
the benefit of Orangeburg County."
The 'Lien Law" was next discuss
ed, and the unanimous opiniou was
that it should he repealed. Dr. O.
N. Bowman offered the following
resolution, which was carried, with
out a dissenting voice:
Resolved. That it is the. sentiment
of the Agricultural Society of Orange
burg that the "Lien Law" should he
repeal?d by the Legislature at ita
After the discussion aud pe'.tlo
ment of these questions, the members
of the Society, as usual, repaired to
the upper room of the building, where
a fine dinner awaited them, nnd was
highly enjoyed. Thus passed a
pleasant flay of t-ocial enjoyment
among our farmers. Wc feel satisfied
that these meetings are profitable to
our people socially and agricultur
ally, nnd we arc surprised t hat every
farmer in the County does not attach
himself to the Society.
Having been misrepresented by a
certain traveling Agent to the people
of our County, in my insurance husi
it ess, 1 beg leave to slate that my
rales for farm policies on dwellings
and outhouses on the same premises
are prrcisv/y the same as those offered
by said traveling Agent.
I would also remind the people that
hi case of a fire, the loss can be ad
justed with less expenpe by the resi
dent Agent than bv nnv one eine.
Kcv. W. B. Parier.
The sad intelligence comes to us of
the death of the Rev. W. R. Parier,
at his homo near Orangeburg, on Sat
urday morning, after a short illueas
from typhoid fever. The funeral ser
vices took place on Sunday evening,
Rev. T. M. Galphin of our town ofiici
atiug, after which the bedy of the de
ceased was interred in the grave yard
at Pour Holes church, a large proces
sion of friends and relatives following
the remains to the grave.
Mr. Pnrkr was the eldest son of
Mr. James Parlor, a successful plan
ter, aud a most intlueutial and estima
ble citizen of Orangeburg County,
who died a few years after the war.
Mr. W. R. Parier, the deceased, re
ceived from his father, who was pos
sessed of means, a ,'iberal education
at. Fur in an University, and, early cx- j
hibitiug a pious teudeney, he fiuish
cd his course at the Theological Semi
nary at Greenville in preparation for
the Baptist miuistry. After his grad
nation he served with success in sev
eral pastorates, and, at the time of
his death, was the minister in charge
of the Four Holes Church. A new
church had just been completed at
this post greatly throughhis exertions
and it is a melancholy coincident
that the first service held in it was
that over his body on last Sunday.
Mr. Parier was possessed of many
sterling trait* of character. He was
always devoted to the cause of hia
Master whom he has now gone to
meet. Although he is taken away
from us,, like all good men, he still
lives in his deeds and his lite the mem
ory of which is left with us.
He married a daughter of the late
Samuel E. Rickeubaker, who is left
behind in early life to mourn the loas
of a devotee! husband. The vend
caused by the hand of death is always
sad to contemplate, but the mourning
ones to day we point to the consola
tion which always springs from the
death of the righteous.

As the Municipal election i? near

mark. A screw needs to be turned
in favor of light taxes. Hard times
are coming und the tax-pay era who

Without cabling reflections upon any

who own property and arc personally
interested in the welfare of the town.
