The season for hauling cotton to

Ex-J?doe W. W. Legaro, Ialo of
Clarksvillo University, now Profes
sor of Natural Science at Adger Col
lege, Walhalla, S. C, visited Orango
burg on Wednesday last. He looks
well, and it was a matter of real
pleasure to him and a host of friends
that he stopped here on his way
home. Fe"' of Carolina's sons have
made .a belter impression for social
worth and classical attainment than
Prof. Lcgare, combining as he emi

the literary and scientific world will

The citizens about Center Hill arc
making very earnest efforts to build
a fine academy with a view of estab
lishing a high school for the educa
tion of their children. We admire
and commend this spirit of enterprise
to our citizens of other sections, with
the hope they may take like steps in
this direction. To establish first
class schools lo be supported both by
private and the public funds is the
only way to educate our children.
Such schools liiaj' be permanent and
and run the year round, while public
school cannot run more than six
months at best..
The sad event in the death of Miss
Marie Whaley, elder daughter of Maj.
T. 15. Whaley, will ho learned with
great regret. Frequent monitions of
declining hcnlth compelled a resort
to Aikcn, where she departed life on
the 27th. The funeral services were
held at 4 o'clock Thursday, the 28th,
at the Episcopal Church, Rev, Mr.
Gucrty olliciating. Even while the
insidious disease was working its
stealthy and certain work, Miss
Whaley preserved that fine appear
ance of health which was retained to
within a short lime of her death. She
was taken in the early morning of
life ; in full view of all that heightens
the hopes of youth. Jjust as the hori
zon dawned with gilded promises the
pall lowered ami death demanded its
prey. The cause of Miss Wlinley's
death was consumption;
Ox last Friday quite a novel suit
was entered by the Stale against
Messrs. W. B. Way, E. M. Parier,
J. D. Shuler, Thomas Felder, Brooks
Parier and Calvin Shuler for viola
lion of the "act for the protection and
preservation of useful animals"?fa
miliarly known as the game law. Mr.
|S. B, Fox worth was the informant
and made oflidavit that the above
parties "did hunt and kill" a deer be
fore the 1st of August. Three color
ed witnesses, apparently reliable men,
were examined and each asserted
upon oath that he knew nothing
about the metier and of course Gen.
J. F. Izlar, defendant's attorney, de
manded a verdict of "not guilty"
winch was rendered. We understand
other suits are lo follow, instituted by
Ihc defendants, which will cost a
great deal of money, if nothing more.
This admonishes those who are dis
posed to inform agi'inst others to at
least 6cc to it that their affidavits
will be corroborated by good witness
