are glad Orangeburg is free from any
muddle of this kind.

?'True Heroism, or Moral Grandeur."
Admission, ten cents.
Haie Storm.?A severe rain and
hail storm, accompanied by consider
able wiud, fell about six miles from
to^vn on the Five Notch Road. Con
siderable damage was done to the
crop of Mr. Henry Stroman and oth
ers in Iiis immediate neighborhood.
The yard and cotton rows were com
pletely covered with the hail stones.
How beautiful is night! How si
lently she tiptoes across the meadows
of yonder peaceful vale. I hear, in
fancy, the soft rustic of her shadowy
garments as they tra 1 above the?

sentiment without something start

Worthy Example.?The Radical
traders of Middle St. Matthews have
.icen no little thwarted in their move
ment in consequence of a few minis
ters of the African Methodist Church
refusing to allow political meetings
to be held in their houses of worship.
This indicates an advancement in
morale realjy commendable, and we
hope other churches will follow an
example so worthy of imitation.

be called the beginning of the cotton -
picking season for the present year,
