Fine Syrup.?We acknowledge the

made by Mr. T. L. Dantzler, of Van
cos Ferry from the early amber cane.
This syrup was made in three months
from the time the seed was planted
and yielded thirty four gallons from
three-sixteenths of an acre. The taste
and flavor are excellent.

days of happiness liefere her. She
leaves a husband und two little chil

A delegate to the Republican Con
vention from Darlington County was
arrested at Florence on his way to
tho Convention for obtaining goods
under false pretence, and is now in
jail.; If starting to a Radical Con
vention had such a bad effect upon n
delegate we shudder to think of the
consequences had he taken part in its
deliberations. That fellow was des
tined to be the companion of thieves
any how, so his being jailed needn't
worry him much.
A Fueak ok Nature.?We Baw at
Branchville on- Wednesday last at the
drug store of Dr. O. H. Ott, a corn
stock which terminated at the top in a
bunch ot oats with blades and grain
-well defined, and at the base of the
oats were several small ears of corn
growing around the stock. This is
certainly a strange freak of nature as
there is no .similarity in the two
grains, both entirely different as to
nature of growth and development.
The stock grew on the farm of Mr.

A Radical Honored.?The Abbe
ville Medium says ft is staled that tbe
Trustees of tbe South Carolina Uni
versity have offered a professorship in
Claflfty University to ex-Associate
Justice Wright. It will bo remem
bered that Wright was charged with
drunkenness before tho Legislature of
1877 and steps were taken to impeach
him when he resigned. Now he is to
be elevated to a very responsible posi
tion by the Democrats. The colored
youth of the State arc to be put under)
his care and guidance and will look up
to him as a standard for their morals
? and principles. Will they bo elevated
and enlightened by his instructions?
It strikes us that the Legislature of
1877 did Wright a great injustice or
the Trustees have made u serious mis
take. What have they to say for
themselves "why sentence should not
be passed upon him?"
Good Crops.?We accompanied
the Washington Grange committee a
few weeks ago on their round of visi
ting a few of the crops in the Middle
St. Matthews section, and were as
tonished to And what progress in
farming had been made in a few years.
Science and practical sense have com
bined in making this one of the most
advanced sections of our country.
Tho crops were tho best we had seen
this season and sufficiently advanced
to be beyond tho reuch of ordinary
casualties. Home made manures and
commercial fertizers judiciously com
posted have made a bale of cotton to
the acre, and twenty bushels of corn
per acre quite a common yield. On
a crop of one hundred acres of cotton
planted by Mr. D. II. Rush, the ma
jority of the Committee gave him an
estimate of ninety five bales ; On Ofty
seven acres of cotton planted by Dr.
J. W. Summers, 1,070 pounds per
acre or Ofty bales, and on forty three
acres of corn, one thousand bushels ;
aud on a crop of some sixtj- acres
planted by M r. Geo. D. Rast 1,040
pounds per acre and 23 bushels corn!
per acre. This is certainly a most
gratifying showing for our farme-s"
and county ami we think compares
favorably with any other. Oue of the
most pleasant features of these visits
is n suberb dinner furnished in the
main of things raised on the farm.
Laying a Corner Stone.?Accor
ding to previous announcement quite
a crowd of citizen from the village aud
surrounding country'of Rranchville
met on Wednesday last to witness the
ceremony of laying the corner stone
of the new Methodist Church. Not
withstanding the unfavorable weather
buggies and wagons began to come in
at an early hour and by eleven o'clock,
the time for meeting, a large number
had gathered and were waiting the
ringing of the town boll. Rev. j.
Berry opened the exercises by reading
the biblo and prayer, after which
Rev. T. Raysor read a history of the
town from its first settlement to the
present time. This was a most amus
ing as well as entertaining paper,
showing from what a small and insig
nificant beginning our little thriving
sister town could boast. Rev. Dove
Tiller and Capt. Hugo G.Sheridan
made speeches on the occasion. The
first reviewed the history of the Chris
tian church and in a graffie manner
pictured the different crises through
which it passed before it reached its
present position of influence in the
world. Tho second speaker had
scarcely enteied upon his subject be
fore the threatening clouds began to
rain and force the audience to bcek
shelter as beat they could. It was
soon evident that the speaking could
not be resumed and Dr. Raysor, the
pastor, proceedod with the ceremony
of laying the corner stone. The fol
lowing articles were as carefully de
posited as possible under the unfavor
able circumstances: Copies of the
Bib'c, Methodist Hymn Book and
Disciplane, Southern Christinn Ad
vocate, Christian Neighbor, church
literature, Charleston News & Cour

though the rain was pouring down,
