Fine Syrup.?We acknowledge the
receipt of a fine specimen of syrup
made by Mr. T. L. Dantzler, of Van
cos Forry from the early amber cane.
This syrup was mado iu 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.
Cotton Picking.?Cotton picking is
progressing rapidly and our farmers
will soon be over the worst of the
season. The September gales are yet
to come and scientist say that the
present month will be particularly
threatening and destructive, because
of certain unusual atmospherical phe
momena that are to happen as tho

no passing of trains until Monday

i;mfe of. Mr. F.' D.' Edwards of Branch
t yiile, which occurred "?n Tuesday
evening last; from a severe: attack ol
Billlcus Fever. ' Mrs. Edwards was
just in the prime of life with many
days of happiness before her. She
leaves a husband and two little chil
dren to suffer their lost of so dear a
companion and mother.
A delegate to the Republican Con
vention from Darlington County wus
arrested at Florence on his way to
the 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 a
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 ueedn't
worry him much,
A Freak ov Nature.?We saw at
Branchvillc on Wednesday last at the
drug store of Dr. O. H. Ott, a corn
stock which terminated at the top in a
bunch ct oats with blades and grain
v/ell defined, and at the base of the
oats were several small ears of corn
growing around the stock. This is
certainly a strunge freak of nature as
there is no similarity in the two
grains, both entirely different as to
nature of growlii and development.
The stock grew on the farm of Mr.

A Radical Honored.?Tbc Abbe
ville Medium says it is stated that the
Trustees oi the South Carolina Uni
versity have offered a professorship in
Clafiln University to cx-Aasociate
Justice Wright. It will bo remem
bered that Wright was charged with
drunkenness before the 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 Domocrnts. The colored
youth of the State are to bn. put under j
his care and guidance and will look up
to him as a standard for tbeir morals
? and principles. Will they bo elevated
and enlightened by his instructions?
It strikes us that tho Legislature of
1877 did Wright a great injustice or
the Trustees have made a serioos mis
take. What have they to say for
themselves "why sentence should not
be pussed upon him?"
Good Crops.?Wo accompanied
the Washington Grango 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 iu
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.
The crops were tho best we had seen
this season and sufficiently advanced
to be beyond tho reach of ordinary
casualties. Home made manures and
commercial fcrtizcrs 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. H. Rush, the ma
jority of tho Committee gave him an
estimate of ninety five bales ; On fifty
seveu acres of cotton planted by Dr.
J. W. Summers, 1,070 pounds per
acre or fifty bales, and on forty three
acres of corn, one thousand bushels ;
aud on a crop of some sixty 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 showiug for our farine-s"
and county and we think compares
favorably with any other. One of the
most pleasant features of these visits
is a 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 Branchville
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 lime for meeting, a large number
had gathered and were waiting the
ringing of the towu 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 gr utile manner
pictured the different crises througli
which it passed before it reached its
present position of influence iu the
world. The second speaker had
scarcely enteied upon his subject be
fore the threatening clouds began to
rain and force the audience to seek
shelter as beet they could. It was
soon evident thnt the speaking could
not be resumed and Dr. Raysor, the
I pastor, proceeded 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
Bih'c, Methodist Hymn Book and
Disciplane, Southern Christian Ad
vocate, Christian Neighbor, church
literature, Charleston News & Cour
ier With Mr. Hay aul's Columbia
Speech, Ouangeuurg Democrat, and
Orangeburg Times; Roll of Officers
and members of the Branchville Bap
tist Sunday School, also of tho Hu
mility and Sardis, both Methodist,
Sunday Schools; postal caid and
envelope of Mr. J. D. Rnond, Dry
Goods Dealer ; Several pieces of coin,
History of the Berry family that came
from Ireland in 1757; A piece of

old ; a roll of Confederate money
Likenesses of the contractor, E. T. R.
Smoak and of Mr. James Burton
Berry, tho farther of the Church, with
a Enlogy of the latter written by a
lady of Branchville. . This being
over, dinner was announced and al
though the rain was pouring down,
very nearly every body romained and
paid his quarter Cor one of the best
meals ever enjoyed on such occasions.
It is said that forty, dollars were rea
lized by the table committee. Tho
evening entertainment by tho ladies
was in full blast at the town hall when
the writer of theso notes got aboard
the New York Express, for winch his
thanks are due Mr. Ligon, the courte

Something tu at Evekyonk Should
Know.?T?o undersigned Urm 1ms
purchased a largo aud convenient lot
adjointng their atoro lot, which they
havo opened into one largo yard and
built thereon an elegant stable, 25 by

house, comfortably arranged, to meet
the wants of those who arc compelled
to camp in town over night. Wheth
er they arc customers or not, all are
welcomo to come and apeud the night
here, free of charge, as these con
veniences have been built for all who
may need them. They have also
completed a splendid cotton platform,
20 by 80 feet, and are now prepared
to buy all cotton offered them, for
which they will pay the highest mar
ket price. Cash always in hand to
pay for it. They use Fairbank's im
proved Southern cotton beam for
weighing and guarantee weights and
prices. This firm has also fitted up
the entire upper story of their store
for clothing, hats, &c, of which they
have a large stock, carefully selected
und bought at lowest cash figures,
which enables them to sell far below
most houses, and when quality is
taken into consideration their prices
will eclipse those of any house in Or
angeburg. They inteud giving up
tho whiskey business on January 1,
(which they sell now only by the
quart and gallon,) and have a stock
of 85,000 on hand, consisting of the
various articles in the whiskey line,
which they ure now offering at prices
that can't bo beut in'small quanties
in any house in the United States.
This is a broad assertion, but it .is
nevertheless true, as a trial will fully
prove. D. E. Smoak & Co , of whom
we speak, are always up to the times,
