NcW gentlemen after hearing the
report it is for you to say what shall
Be done and how it shall be done,
Wc have bad 4 successful exhibitions
which fjhould be an honor to the
County. The last one was the fifth)
and under the trying crlrcumstances
the Board feel that as the expenses
were met that they did well. There
is no use for me to repeat our obsta
cles since 1878, but will simply re
mind tho stockholders that their duty
towards the Association has been care
lens and discouraging) and would in
voke you to unite your wisdom and I
influence towards its interests in fu
ture* and whoever is elected directors
will have encouragement to work for
the interest bf the Association, and
the county. We believe and feel
that the planting interests of our
county demand it, and this society
will ssek it, and wo farther believe
that without some such attractions,
or some such interest in home pro
ductions and improvements that so
cial industrial improvements will
retrograde; therefore gentlemen, it
is for you to say to-day what shall be
dolic?nnd bow it shall he done, and
if you elect directors to run the Fairs
to Interest) you must do it with a will
to encourage both by your means and
influence;
The report of. Committee on the
Clement Attachment was read and
received n8 information, and the
committee discharged: Tho views of
individual members on tho future
policy of the Association were called
for by President J, L. Moorer. Capt.
Samuel Dibble thought the trUe poli
cy to bo pursued was for tho Associa
tion to follow the even ten tue of its
way* The condition of the Associa
tion was as encouraging as could
be expected, and the debt resting
upon it had been consolidated at ?
per cent. He advised no new enter
prise save to bold a Floral Fair in the
Spring in addition to the Annual
Fair in the Fall. If the property ad
joining the Fair grounds could be
sold at a fair valuation let it bo done,
but not to sell it at a sacrifice. The
property was not rusting and would
increase in value as tbe town built up.
He advised that the premium list be
confined to articles on exhibition and
not include crop's raised here and
there. He saw no reason for dis
couragement, and thought that the
shares not paid for should be sold.
Mr. Dibble moved that the same
President and Board of Directors be
clectedk The motion being put was
carried unanimously, and the chair
man announced that the same Presi
dent and Board were elected to serve
the ensuing year.
""?'Miv.T. H. Zimmerman thought
Fairs, did not pay expenses and fa
vored a sale of the propertyv
Dr. W. F. Barton did not concur
but thought Fairs would pay hand
somely if each stockholder would take
an interest in them. The four Fairs
preceding the last, each paid from
8200 to $300 apiece. Orangeburg
was a successful agricultural county-?
full of energy and enterprise and if
each man would get bis neighbor to
attend and thus infuse an interest in
the members of every community, in
a short time the Association would
be clear of debt.
Mr. L. R. Beckwith said that the
success of previous Fairs came from
outsiders. Most of the stockholders
neither exhibited or patronized tbe
Fair. Last year was not a fair crite
rion by which to judge tho success of
any enterprise. Let every man do
his duty and success was sure.
Dr. J. C. Holman voted against the
Directors because he was one and
wanted to get out.
- Mr. Harpin Rlggs did not wish to
serve, because a few did all the work
and he thought the Fair an up-hill
business. If every member would do
his duty it would not be so.
Dr. Barton objected to Mr. Riggs
declinig to serve and hoped for the
good of the Association he would not
decline.
An effort was made to reconsider
the vote by which tho President and
Board of Directors were elected but
failed.
There being no further business
the meeting adjourned.
A Mysterious Hand.
A curiosity which puzzles scientists
in now on exhibition in Gould's cabi
net at Mill City, Nov. It is a per
fectly formed hand, which apparent
ly belonged to a boy about fourteen
years of age. Tho hand is open, the
fingers being slightly bent towaid tho
palm, on which tho thumb rests.
Tho back of the hand seems to havo
been crushed or decomposed before
petrified 5 tho palm, thumb and fin
gers are perfect. It was found at the
sulphur beds near Rabbit Hole, by
one of the men employed in shoveling
crude sulphur into the refining retort,
and is supposed to havo been cm
bedded in the sulphur bank for ages.
The fingers are comparatively short,
a fact which indicates that it did not
belong to an Indian, as tho rcdir.an's
fingers aro generally longer than
those of tho whites 5 but tho thumb is
rather longer than the average* To
what race tho owner of tho hand bo
longed, and how and when it was em
bedded in tho sulphur, will probably
ever remain unknown.
A PRINCE'S MARRIAGE IN OREGON.
?o?
THE FORTUNES OF A LEADER IN THE
AUSTRIAN REVOLUTION OF 1818i
A few days ago tho Oregonian
contained a list of marriages during
the year, and among them appeared
tho following notice I "December 13,
Prince C. J. Nada&ky and Marie
Von Reiche." Tho oddity of a titled
Wedding in Oregon led our reporter
to investigate, and here follows the
true story t Prince Carl Johann Na
dasky, sole heir of a wealthy aud
influential Austrian family and a long
line of illustrious ancestors* was dur
ing the revolutionary war of 1848, a
young officer in the Imperial Aus
trian Guard. When sentence of
death was passed on Robert Blum,
the famous revolutionary leader and
a favorite of the German people, the
young officer was detailed to com
mand the detachment of soldiers
whose bullets were to terminate the
life of the noblest and bravest man
of his age. The fortitude Blum dis
played at the execution and his part
ing words so impressed tho young
soldier that a few months' study of
the liberal publications of those days
sufficed to lead him into the revolu
tionary party. But the feudal gov
ernment triumphed) and Prince Na
dasky, together with many other
prominent leaders; was taken prison
ers and condemned to death* But
through the influence of his relatives
I his sentence was commuted to im
prisonment for life, and he was sent
to the dark toils of an Austrian fort
ress.
Eight long years tho Prince lived
the life of a convict, until at the birth
of the Crown Prince of Austria he
was liberated, but banished from his
country for life. He came to San
Francisco and devoted himself, under
the assumed name of II. Meier, to the
business of flower gardner, earning a
livlihood and accumulating a small
fortune. About five years ago he
waain^arrjed to a (Sertnan lady of no
ble birth, who was impressed with
the cultured and gentlemanly de
meanor of the gardner. Not moro
than a year past ho removed to this
State, and lived at Salem, where
he bought a small property for his
business. But the happy pair had
been blessed with a lovely boy, and
the father found no rest in the sdd
thought that his dear ones were des
tined to lead an obscure life, away
from the luxury and honors due
them, and took passage for Europe.
He went to Vienna, and in an audi
ence with Emperor Francis Joseph,
succeeded la obtuining bis pardon
and being reinstated into his ances
tral inheritance. Post haste he eped
back to his family, and under bis ieal
name he was again married in this
city to his faithful wife. The steam
er Idaho* which left here December
20, took the happy couple and their
young son back to the castles of the
Prince in tho beautiful mountain re
gions of Austin.?Oregon Zietting.
Queer Name tor a Newspaper.
Considerable curiosity having been
manifested by our friends in regard
to the significance of the name of this
paper, we will inform them that
Dona Ana County having heretofore
been Republican by majorities rang
ing from three to five hundred, and
the Democratic party having in tho
recent election carried it by a majori
ty of thirty-four, a revolution which
one of the editors of this paper con
tributed towards b inging about, it
was considered appropriate to adopt
that majority for a name. Heralds,
Democrats, Republicans. Suns, Stars,
Gazettes, &c., these arc without
number, and not one of them posses
ses such an individuality as to bo in
telligibly referred to by its simpie
name without mentioning its locality.
There ts but ono Thirty-Four* and
whenever it shall bo mentioned there
will bo no doubt as to what particu
lar journal is alluded to. Tho name
is brief and unique, has a local and
historical significance and is just odd
enough to attract attention. These

ten ignored in a profession which
lives by advertising other people's
business but neglects to advertise its
own.?New Mexico Thirty Four.

A five dollar note would be an ex

j Nicholas, the Emperor of Russia,
won his bride in a singular way ; yet
it had'a spice of gallantry in it. Du
ring a visit to the King of Prussia,
one day, while at dinner, tho Empe
ror rolled up a ring in a piece of
bread, and handing it to the Princess
Royal, said to her in a subdued voice,
"If you will accept my hand, put this
ring on your finger." This is the im
perial way of 'popping the question.'
She took no time to deliberate, but
suffered her heart to speak, the truth
at once; and their happy nuptials
were soon consummated. The royal
way is illustratatcd by the instance of
Queen Victoria's proposal to the man
of her choice?and a right worthy
one it was?Prince Albert. The
prince had been out hunting early
with his brother that day, but return
ed at twelve, and half au hour after
ward he obeyed the Queen's summons
to her room, where he found her
alone. After a fow minutes conver
sation on other subjects, the Queen
told him why she had squt for him (
and we can well understand any little
hesitation and delicacy she may have
felt in doing so, for the Queeu's posi
tion, making it imperative that any
proposal of marriage came first from
her, must necessarily appear a pain
ful one to those who, deriving the
ideas on this subject from the prac
tice of private life, aro wont to look
upon it as tho privilege aqd happiness
of a woman to have her .hand sought
in marriage, instead of haying to offer
it herself.

HORRIBLE TRAGEDY.
?o?
ONE MAN SHOOTS ANOTHER DOWN IN
bOIi ? BLOOD IN ATLANTA.
The Constitution of a recent date,
gives the sad and sickening detail?
of a cold-blooded murder, with the
causes which prompted the commis
sion of the terrible deed. Mr. Sara
Hill and Mr. John K. Simmons met
in the bar-room of the National Hotel,
and almost immediately after the
meeting, Mr. Hill shot Mr. Simmons,
inflicting a fatal wound in the head.
General rumor stated that Mr. Hill's
wife was cUmlectcd with tho affair,
and that some wrong to her was the
cause of his action in the premises.
Mr. Hill gave himself up to a police
man, was taken to the station house,
where be made a statement to a re
porter, corroborating the rumor.
Said be: "I have been wronged,
wronged deeper than I can tell you.
I have been off and on in Atlanta sev
eral years. I have few friends here
and many people are down on me. I
have been wronged. I married a girl
here?a noble woman. Everybody
who saw. her loved her. I know that
she loved me devotedly. Last fall
while I was away, I was wronged?
wronged deeper than if a man had
shot me, und left me to linger out my
life in pain. Men who have not
wives cannot tell how I was wronged,
but a man with a mother and a sister
ought to be able to appreciate it.
While I was gone a man went to my
wife and got into her confidence by
representing himself as my dear
friend. I came back to Atlanta and
sold pools on the city election. One
night just after this election I was up
town, when a friend came to me and
told me I had better go out home, us
some one had gone there and told my
wife that I was coming home to kill
her. I hastened out to my home at
260 cast Hunter street, and found on
the door a i.ote saying: 'My dear
husband, good-bye. I call yoa by
that name for the last time. I. am
gone./
it was signed by my- wife, and 1
believe that a man came in a carriage
and took her away.?'
The prisoner, was then asked if the
man he had shot was ? life man who
had wronged him, to which he re
plied :
"I never saw him before in my life,
but from the description I have heard,
I think it was the same man."
Mr. Simmons' friends give a ver*
sion of the ailair very materially dif
ferent. They say that after Simmons
was shot, and was lying on the floor
when he could hardly speak for blood
in his mou h, his brother, Mr. Mote
Simmons, of the firm of Simmons ?Sc
Hunt, came to him, the wounded man
said in gasps, "He shot me for noth
ing." It is also denied that Mr.
Simmons ever had anything to do
with the wife of Mr. Hill. Says tho
Constitution:
"The case is one of the most un
fortunate wo have ever chronicled.
Mr. Simmons is a young man who
has many warm friends here. He is
about twenty-two years old, and is a
member of the Atlanta Cadets. He
is the proprietor of a drug store on
Marietta street, neur the cotton fac
tory."

His Fraudulenoy.
The Springfirdd Republican rises
in the majesty of New England virtue
to retnaik that it is full time for the
bogus President to retire J. Madison
Wells into tho obscurity which he
merits; This, from a paper Which
j has been set down ?s friendly to Mr.
Hayes and his fraudulent admii.ds
11 ration, is most Unkind. The Repub
lican can certainly not be ignorant of
the fact that Wells is one of ltlhe
gang;" that Mr. Hayes can ho more
go back on him thun he can claim to
be an honest man after having pur
loined (as he has up to date) $95,826
of President Tilden. Wells was one
of the thieves who stole the Presi
dency, and like all the other thieves*
has been rewarded by the man v. ho
received, and is iib'w' enjoying, tho
stolen goods. Unless a Democratic
Congress concludes to relieve the
country of the disgrace by legislating
these scoundrels out of office or Im
peaching them, they will remain se
cure in their places until the close of
the fraudulent Presidential term.
Hayes would not for a moment dare to
dismiss any them. The honor said to
exist am?ng thieves must iu this in
stance be scrupulously observed.
Suggestions such as the Republican's
only tonds to embarrass Mr. Hayes*
an affiiction which, from one of his
reputed personal organs, he may rea
sonably claim to be exempt.? Wash

Decay.
Turn withersoever we will on the
proud face of creation, and we find
the landmarks of decay. A continu
ed autumn brings down the weak and
aged to death.
The strong oak that lifts its haughty
head on . yonder hill, defying the
hurricane, may have a tiny worm
gnawing at Its heart that will sooner
or later send its lifeless trunk to the
earth, a broken, mass of decaying
wood.
' The huge mountain, around*whose
lofty turrets the lightnings of a thou
sand agencies have played and flash
ed, and whose devoted sides have
breasted the storms of . snow aud
rain, alike impervious to each other,
may contain within its bosom a vol
cano that will, ono. day, rend it in
fragments, and level it . with the
plain. .
The haughty eagle that mounts the.
sky, aud dries his plumage in the
sunshine far ubve the clouds, has his
allotted 100 years to live?
Everywhere wo find indelibly static
ped the word "decay." The Butt, moon
and stars-?the earth) with the ashes
of her myriad dead?must one day
be rolled up as a scroll. The tooth
of time is contibally gnawing the
bones of departed millions. The si
lence of tho tomb gives back but a
single echo and that?decay.
