A. Paper lor- the People,
ORAKQEDURQ, S. C, JjJLY 30. 1S80.
Hop.?There was quite a pleasant
hop at tho residence of Mr. Meyer
last Wednesday evening. Quite a
number of young folks attended, and
enjoyed the mazy dance until the wco
Picnic.?Quite a credi'.ablo Sun
day School picnic was held at llcthlo
hem Church in the Fork some two
weeks ago; aud the children are dis
appointed that no account of the mat
ter appeared in the Democrat. Our
friends are to blame for .this. Wo
know nothing of it until too late to
make a note.
Serious Accident.?A colored girl,
about fourteen years of ngo, while
sitting between the ends of the cross
,ties on tho Railroad was knocked off
by the out-going train on Monday
morning lost und had her arm badly
crushed. Tho bands on the Engine
did not discover the girl until it was
too late to slop the train. The girl
was an idiot.
What Is it??Mr. G. II. Cornelson
is hauling a large Steam Engine from
the depot to bis now brick building
which will soon bo put in position to
drive something, but nobody, except
himself, knows exactly what. With
his energy and enterprise, it will not
surprise us if the hum of the spindle
be heard in Orangeburg in less than
a month. Success to the enterprise.
Improving.?We learn from a!
friend, that Mr. J. W. Moseley, our
worthy Mayor, js now at Glenn
Springs Hand well pleased with the
place. Ho feels belter and stronger
that for months beforo, and will re
main there to give tho water a fair
test. Wo do hope Mr. Moseley will
realize his most sanguine expectation
and be able to return to bis family
completely restored to health.
Off kok Hkndeusonyii.le.?We
learn that a shooting team, consisting
of Dr. M. Cr. Salley, Messrs. J. A. &
?D. J. Salley, 1\ G. Cannon, and Mr.
N. II. Hull have gone to Henderson
?vi lie to shoot for the championship of
the South. We expect to hear an ex
cellent repot** from these gentlemen
;and would not be surpri cd if they
make tho highest >eore. Messrs.
. Dan K. Suioakand T. M. Raysor tie-j
Ma or. met owx Match.?Every
body is familiar with the nitre ofj
Swift & Courtney, in connection with
matches. Mr. Courtney's d uightor,
Laura, seems to have inherited her
father's tendency to make those at tic
Jes, but wlllj hardly And hers so pro
fitable. She recently ran away from
her homo in Wilmington, Delaware,
with a hired roan. Her father has
offered a reward of $2,500 for infor
mation regarding her.
Don't Forget It.??Somc time ngo
we remarked that a bridge would be
put up a cross the Railroad opposite
the Five Notch road by Section
Master J. G. McKewn for the con
yenenee of our citizen in the Eastern
portion of the town. The work is
not yet done, hut we presume will be,
just as soon a3 Mr, McKewn can give
his attention to the matter, lie is
pot a man to fail or disappoint in an
improvement of this kind.
Jks So.?The decline and fall of
the shirt collar i3 the leading event of
these days. In the morning the col
lar may be as spotless as the record of
eaoh raau's favorite candidate, as
shapely as a civil service plank in a
platform and as tall as a campaign
lie, but before night it is sure to be ns
dirty ns anything but the town streets
as shapeless as any of the late lamen
ted booms, and as depressed us the
hopes of Republicans who have been
searching for mud to throw at Han
Welcome.?We were glad to sec
Mr. E. L. Salley, a son of our esteem
ed friend Dr. A. S. Salley, in town on
Sunday last. Mr. Salley some years
ago moved to Texas and found for
tune 8tniiing so propitiously that he
determined to make that Siale his
adopted home, After a short and
pleasant visit to his relations and
friends at Orangeburg he will return
not, however, without many delight
ful reccollcciions of tltc scenes of his
early childhood in our midst. In
Mr* Salley Texas secures a most,
worthy citizen while wc of Orange
burg part with an esteemed friend.
ESCAPED.?On Wednesday morning
a prisoner, Peter Williams, escaped
from jail while engaged in taking the
slop from the rooms to the yard. Mr.
l'celc, the jailer, fired at him tu ice
with a shotgun but too far to damage
tho fellow much. Williams was
awaiting trial on an indictment lot
cow stealing. This is the second
time prisoners have escaped under
similar circumstances. Could not
some arrangement bo made whcie-by
tho jailor, who has no one to help
him, might have this work done with
out allowing so much freedom to the
prisoners cngagtd in it!
