Wk learn that Mr. J. C. Pike has
purchased the Pitthan lot next to Mr. j
Reeves' drug store, and proposes at I
some future day to place valuable

We regret to hear of the death of
Mrs. Adam Felder which occurred on
Monday evening last of Congestive
chills. Mrs. Felder was a most ex

world a Christian character that

conduct before the public eye. She

ones to mourn this the saddest afllic

The season for putting in tho oat
crop is close at hand and the live far

suitable lands and the best seed.
There is poor success in farming j
without a heavy oat crop, enough to

the year. This will require good lands
and the rust-proof variety and early
planting. Our best farmers any
October or early in November is the
time for sowing.
The Rev. C. C. Fishburne, of the
Walterboro Circuit, preached a most
excellent sermon in the Methodist

glad to announce that his appeal to
the Orangeburg public was not in

The colored people of Collleton
County are becoming as enthusiastic
in tho cause of Democracy as their

and has taken the stump for the
Democratic nominees. He brings a
large following of his race with him.
It is through the efforts of such honest
colored men that the Democratic par
