We call the attention of little boys
and foolish men who arc in the habit
of using sling-shots in the street to
the evils of so dangerous' a pas

We learn that the dwelling of Mr.

this country. Mr. Holloway's ability
as a teacher is well known and needs
no comment. Send your children, it
is the best legacy you can leave them.
Our readers who indulge in the
luxury of a fine cigar aro directed to
the drug store of Mr. S. A. Becvos,
who has just received a lot of tho
best we have ever tested. '1 hose cigars
though fine, are cheap and sold by
Dr. Beeves at $1.25 a box. The
flavor is equal to that of cigars usual
ly sold for five cents a piece. He has

ever tticd is kept hero and cheap.

We uro glad to note ,tkat a very
successful protracted meeting Las
just ended at Hebron Methodist
Church, near Boiling Springs Camp
ground. Eight accessions to tho

the results of this meeting through

The worthy and efficient agent of
the South Carolina Railroad at this
place, Mr. T. O. Dawaon, deserves
ihc thanks of the excursionists on
Wednesday lor his unremitting efforts
in behalf of their comfort whilst in
wailing for Ihc train. This is espe
cially just when it is considered what
an amount of labor is involved in

Mb. B. M. Bulsifier, of the Boston
Herald quotes the statement that the

000,000 a year for spirituous and fer
mented liquors and only 895,500,000
for education, and $48,000,000 for

such a thirsty people," he says ; "but
I have heard a good deal of viiluous

properly is exempted from taxation,
and some of the States have come
very near ruining themselves with

Tub revival which has been in pro
gress at the Methodist Church in this
place was brought to a close on last
Wcdndesday night amid the most
solemn sccno it has ever been our for
tune to witness. So deeply was the
people impressed with the sermon on
"Bo ye also rcatjy," preached by the
Rev. Manning Brown, that when the
call was made for penitents, very
nearly half of the congregation went
up for prayer and one joined the
Church. Wo regret tho necessity
which closes a meeting so full ol
promise for future good, but wc trust
the work begun may continue until
every one is brought within tho pale
of the Church.
Said a young lady to Ihe editor a |
few evenings since, "My sweetheart
is a farmer and has great, large corns
in the palms of both bauds. But
though his hands arc hard, rough and
tanned, he has a kind and noble
heart." Wo asked if the young swain
had one hundred acres and a mule of
his own. Tho reply was that he had
two hundred acres and two mules.
Wc pronounced him a bonanza king,
and told our fair friend to catch him
if she could. We advise all our lady
readers to be on the lookout for all
such chances. Theso hardy plough
men arc the independent sovereigns
of tho land, and the salt of the earth.
Would there were more of them.
How to Keep Uil a Town.?Soil

nate a building lol for some large
business enterprise, and thoroby en

induce business men to locale iu your

speak well to strangers of your town

About twenty.fiyo of our citizens,
ladies and gcntloiucn, joined tho ex
cursion for the up-country and moun
tains on Wednesday last. Wo saw)
among them the venerable Dr. Elliott, j
and trust that the strengthening at

of the mountains will improve his
physical condition and cnablo him to

We learn that Maj. J. J. Sallcy
visited the counties of Lexington,
Edgefield and Laurcns last week and
brings back flattering and cheering
reports of matters and things general
ly. Both cotton and corn are small
but the former has time enough to
make a satisfactory yield. Maj. Sal.ey
reports the farmers of the up-country
as being highly pleased with the "No
Fence Law." The people make more
milk and butter than they ever did
before. One of the blessings of the
law, not a mean one either, is that
one knows exactly where to find his
cows without losing ever so much
time hunting them. One man will
make two bags of cotton ori his old

me was admirably conceived;
didly executed by every one to whom
a part was assigned. The appear
ance of the room carried one back in
the past more than one hundred years
and called vividly to mind tho man
ners, customs and habit of a people
and an uge we have learned to veaer-j
ate becauso of the simplicity that
characterized them, and of a history
which is the foundation stone of our
present civilization and material
progress. To ucc and live even a
few hours amid such surroundings
was worth the fee charged for admit
tance, and so every one who witness
ed the concert considered it. We
have heard no other opinion express
ed but that it was "a grand afi'air,"
"brilliant success," "happily con
ceived," and "did credit to tho noble
actors who took part in tho affair and
sustained those parts so creditably
throughout tho evening. Of course
the community is indebted to Mr.
Obidiah Primrose, whose musical
genius could bo seen in every one of,
them second only to their ancient
"Songe Teacher." Tho community,
however, will pardon us for our mak
ing special mention of Mrs. J. A. H.
and Miss B., whoso voices wore plain
tively sweet pud wonderfully full yet
musical throughout their pieces. Wo
don't know that we have ever heard
better singing and so general through
out tho company. Tho little boys
and girls deserve special mention for
the excellent manner in which they
performed their part which was no in
considerable item in tho programmo
and afforded Obidiah Primroso a
splendid opportunity to display his
wonderful talent. Orungeburg is pe
culiarly blessed with musical talent
and why may wo not have frequently
i such occasions of amusomcnt here as
elsewhere. Wc can and the public
will appreciate it.
