Remember, Democrats, inertness
aud ovor-coufidencc may be the cause
of your awaking on the 3d of Novem
ber to tho realization of a lost State
and County. The Radical thieves are
making eyery effort to bring back the
days of Moses and Scott.
It is said that every Radical has a
Democrat assigned him, over whom
he must keep a sharp watch to keep
him from repeating or voting more
than ono ballot. This is Boliver's
idea of carrying the election. Every
Democrat is to be shadowed.
A Helping Hand.?Drugs of al_
kinds taken internally shock the ays
tern and by reaction produce bad re
sults. Dr. Fiagg's Improved Liver
and Stomach Pad aids nature iu na
ture's own way, and perfect health
never fails to follow its use.
All old sailors believe in the tale
of the mythical ship, called the "Fly
ing Dutchman," which allures other
ships to destruction. Bolivcr is the
"Flying Dutchman" of the Radical
party and in attempting to follow him
they will be lead to destruction next
The Twelfth Annual Fair of the
State Agricultural and Mechanical
Society will be opened on the ninth

road will charge the same rates as in

give promise of complete success.
Jt is a debatable question whether
Boliver's hasty retreoifrom Glcaton's
was caused by fright or an inate de
sire to appropriate to his owe use
Livingston's roast goose and other
edibles he found in the buggy. His
appellation of "Flying Dutchman"
serves him well here, as he wishes to

The St. Stephens colored camp

When Bolivcr made his terrible ti
rado, against the whites some time
ago, in which he advised the negroes
to carry this election if they had to
fight, we told the colored people that
on the first appearance of danger that
Bolivcr would be found wanting. As
to the truth of our assertion wc refer
tticm to the little personal difficulty
at Gleaton's last week when this val
iant champion of the colored people's
rights ran l\ke a frightened hare. Is
this tue man to lead you?
Tho colored people of Lower St.
Matthews held a meeting at Mr. J. F.
Way's store on Wednesday night
last and, ignoring their old leaders,
iuvited only Democratic speakers to
address them. This is certainly one
or the most, gratifying signs of the
campaign wc have Been, am! indicates
a dermination on the part of our col
ored citizens to obtain information
from the only true sou reo and not to
bp led as dumb cattle by any dishon
est office seeker who m,a,y choose to
call Luhiuclf n Republican.
The colored man who was wounded
in the disturbance at Glealon on
Thursday of last week, was taken
care of by Democrats on the ground I
and has been attended by a Demo
cratic physician eycr since. We are
reliably informed that the condition
of tl>o unfortunate inno. is growing
better every day and hopes are enter
tained of his cei tain and epcedy rc
coyory. He does not blame the
whito people in a s nglc particular,
but rather himself for being where he
had no business. We hope soon to
hear that he is up and well.
On last Wednesday about twelve
0,'clock tho stables on the premises of
Judge T. W. Glover was found to be
burning and the alarm of lire was im
mediately given. The fire depart
ment responded, promptly, but for
the want of water, only the Hook and
Ladder Company could do effective
service. The ' building Was at once
leveled with the ground which effec
tually stopped the further progress of
the lire. Uncle Joe was on hand but
did nothing but exhaust the steam
he had generated. The lire is said to
have been caused by burning some
brush in an adjoining lot.

COURTHOUSE DEMOCRATIC ClUB.?
The strains of Uie Edisto Band pro
ceeding from the Young America En
gine Hall reminded every Democrat
in Orangeburg that a meeting ol his
club was called and that fidelity to
his parly and duty to his country
alike demanded his presence on the
occasion. Scarcely had the last note
died away before the hall was filled
to its utmost capacity with enthusiastic
voters of every age and occupation,
all anxious to enter upon the work of
perpetuating the redemption of his
county so nobly achieved in 1878.
At the appointed hour Iba President,
Dr. A. S. Hydiick, cailed the Club to
order, and the Secretary, L. II. Wan
namaker, Esq., read the minutes of
the last meeting in so eloquent a man
ner as to call forth the applause of the
audience. After the necessary busi-.
ness of the meeting was disposed of,
the following gentlemen were called
on to address the club: Mr. H. G.
Sheridan, Col. M. I. Browning, Mr.
B. P. Izlar, Mr. W. L. Glnzc, Mr. J.
II. Fowlcs, Mr. S. R. Mollichamp,
Mr. Fred. A. Sehlllley and Mr. W. J.
DeTreville, Jr. The applause with
which each of these gentlemen was
greeted on taking Hie floor and
throughout tho addresses, bears wit
ness to the activity and life of the
party in our midst, and the laudable
enthusiasm which actuates the breast
of every Democrat in the Club. By
half-past ten o'clock music and elo
quence had so thoroughly aroused the
enthusiasm of the Club that on mo
tion jt was unanimously agreed' to
have a torchlight procession on this
evening, and a committee was ap
pointed to make the "necessary ar
rangement for carrying out the
wishes of the club; It is confidently
expected that the aflair will be a
grand success as speeches and music
will be provided and many Demo
crats faom the country will partici
pate in the enthusiasm ol the occa
sion. After resolutions of thanks to
tho members of the baud for their
handsome contribution lo the enjoy
