Dime Reading.?The dime reading
announced by the Young Men's Chris

to be quite an interesting occasion.
Capt. John A. Hamilton rend a most
iutereoling paper entitled ?'Reminis
cences of a Trip Across the Allan
tic," which was not only enjoyable,
but instructive to every one who
heard it. Tin: style was faultless and
the reading excellent. Quite an in
teresting feature of the entertainment
was the performance of Prof. Van
Orsdell upon the zitier, nn instrument
which gives forth the sweetest melo
dies under a master's hand, and the
Professor's music charmed the audi
ence. It is a source of regret that so
few of our citizens attend these rend-J

entire get up of which was complete
and afforded pleasure for the most re

Death ok Mrs. HuiutEi.l,?With
the deepest pain we announce the
death of Mrs. Mary Hubbell, which
occurred at the residence of busband,
Mr. T. C. Hubbell, on Monday even
ing last at 9 o'clock, and was buried
in the Presbyterian grounds on Wed
nesday morning. Her funeral ser
vices were largely attended by our
citizens, both male and female, at
testing the high appreciation in which
the deceased was held by the entire
community. Mrs. Hubbell was about
sixty years of age and had spent the
greater part of that time in labors of
love, going in and out among her
neighbors, exhibiting all the while a
blameless Chrislinn life and stamping
indelibly upon those with whom she
came in contact the stern worth ol
her cwu virtues. Gentle of disposi
tion, aireclionale in her attachments
and true to every relaliou and duly
of lifo, she 'eaves behind her a devo
ted husband and loving children to
mourn their loss and a host of friends
to hold her life as an example in pre
fix us memory.
Boi.ivkr Making Speeches.?Last
Monday Mr. George Boliver gathered
around him in the Independent En
gine Hall thirty-Gvc or forty colored
people many of whom were women
and delivered himself of a speech emi
nently characteristic of the man and
the occasion. He protested that he
was a friend of the colored people
and was the only while Republican
who had stood by them in their great
est danger and trials. The speaker
called on his corporal's guard of hear
ers to witness how true he hail been
to the party's principles and the col
ored man's interest. Here our re
porter left the scene to obtain pencil
and paper to make a true report of
the speech and when he returned said,
"the best of the gravy had been spilt."
This is sufficient, however, to show
that the irrepressible Boliver is again
upon the trail und is not likely to
leave it, so long as there is the faint
est glimmering of a fat office in the
distance. Our colored citizens know
this and aro therefore content to
drink free lager and listen to bun
combe speeches. Boliver, as a Radi
cal politician, is dead, and his influ
ence cannot command a corporal's
guard of colored votes.

The Glohious Foukth.?^Sunday,
the Fourth of July, was appropriately
celebrated by the Edisto llifles oy at
tending the Methodist Church in a
body. At half past JO o'clock the
company uude.r tlie command of
Lieutenants, G. W. Branson, F. S.
Dibble and P. G. Cannon, entered
the church and filed down the uisles
in single ranks to the reserved seats,
their beautiful uniforms presenting a
strange but pleasing contrast with the
solemn surrroundings. The pastor,
Rev. O. A. Darby, preached a most
excellent sermon from II Timothy,
11 chapter, and 3d verse, iu which he
portrayed the Christian duty of our
citizen soldiery with marked effect
upon his congregation. Monday af
ternoon business was generally sus
pended by the merchants closing the'r
stores and everybody felt free to en
joy the afternoon in the most jolly
way possible. The Fdistos were out on
dress parade which would have beeu
ten fold more enjoyable had the band
accompanied the movements with
maltial music. After marching and
counter-marching the command was
mu-ehed up before the office of their
old veteran Capttin, now Gen. Jas.
F. Izlar, and, after giving three cheers
and n call for the General, wee in
vited by bin? to Eros' Ice Cream Sa
loon to cool off. Here Gen. Izlar ad
dressed the corps in one of his finest
efforts, and, fallowing the inspiration
of the previous day. nicely blended
the moral with the military as regards
young men in discharging their duty
to the country. Those who heard it
will long entertain a pleasant recol
lection of the speaker and speech.
The colored citizens gave them
seves up to frolic and fun, and, until
a late hour, the merry sound of 1? ugb
ter and the dance were heard at the
Independent Engine flail. With no
politics to disturb or a pirants after
office to direct them, tho day was one
of unusual hilaiity excited by social
pleasure, picnic and th^e dance.
Fatal Accident.?On last Friday
morning a young man calling himself
Edgar Flash informed Sheriff Livings
ton that his paituer on a tramp to
Columbia, Walter Flood, bail been
killed about one o'clock Thursday
night about six miles above here by
the down freight train on the South
Caro'ina Railroad. Deputy Coroner
Aiken was immediately notified, and j
by ten o'clock was at the scene of the I
accident with a jury of inquest. The j
evidence before the jury gives us the
following history of the accident:
Edgar Flash wifs engaged as a driver
in the service of a Mr. Lee, living
ten miles above Charleston, and in'
that capacity went to Charleston on j
the Wednesday preceding the acci
dent for a load of groceries. While
in the city he met the young man,
Flood, whom he had known for a
number of years and with whom he
ha<l always sustained intimate and
friendly relations. Flood proposed
to Flash to undertake a tramp to Co
lumbia iu order to accomplish an en
terprise they had set on foot. Flash
agreed to go with him, and Flood re
turned on the wagon with Flash to
Ten Mile Ilili on Wednesday night.
That night they boarded the train
and rode as far as Georges' Station
before they were found out and put
off. They walked to Branchville, wait
ed for the next train, and, getting on
the sleeping coach, rode to Rowes
ville, when they were ^.gain put olf.
From Rowesvillc they walked to Or
rungeburg and remained in the town
during tho day. That night they
boarded the ten o'clock train and rode
about two miles when they were put
off for the third time. It was then
agreed that they should wulk to Jam
ison and try to "beat" a ride on the
next train. They walked about two
miles, when they sat down to rest.
Flood placed a bundle of shirts on the
rail and laid down. Flash put his
cout under bis head and also laid
down, neither intending to go to sleep,
but after talking for some time,
and being tired and 6ufferiug fiom
loss of sleep fiom the previous night,
they were soon in a deep sleep, from
wh eh Flash was awaked by the ap
proaching train whon within thirty
feet of him. Bewiidored with fear
and the sudden waking he sprang
from the track, and endoavortd to
scramble up the steep embankment
of the cut. In a minute the train
thundered by, and its fatal work had
j been done. Flash returned and laid
j down for a few minutes before he was
conscious of tho hi tu at ion. Ho then
called hie .partner., and getting no an
swer put his >hand on him to shake
him. As he did so he Xejt the warm
blood gushing .from Ids wounds.
Stricken with torror -at his ghostly
surroundings, Flush., gathei ing up his
coat, ran down the road until he
came to the house of Mr. Richards.
Here he called out Mr. Richards' sons
and neyutvnted thorn with the horri
ble details of the accident. They re
turned with him .:.ind found the body
of Flood lifeless. An examination of
tho body by the surgeon revealed a
fracture of the lower jaw and exten
sive fractures of the ?kull on the
right side of the head. It is proba
ble that the unfortunate young man
never awoke from his slumbers to
realize his danger, and as death wus,
from the nuluro of his wounds, in
stantaneous, the horrors of such a
death are somewhat mitigated. The
verdict of tho jury was in accordance
with the above fuels.

friends by selling them good* fur below
the wholesale market of New York.
It was the credit system lh.it paralyzed
our industries in the pact and canned so
many Interests to droop und w ilher wluk
every article needed for family consump
tion doubled in value. Thus while lubor

and consequently goods fall to bottom

J it its therefore quite easy for us to sell
