Orakqedurg, s. C, Dice.isso.
Quite an excitement was raised in
the Eastern portion of the town at the
appearance of a mad dog on Wcndcs j
day last. Rumor has it that a eat,
two dogs and a colored girl were bit

Mu. Amos Balr, a quiet and high
ly esteemed citizen ol* Middle Town
ship, died last Friday night and was
burricd on Saturday. Mr. Bair was
about seventy eight years of age and

A hunting party, composed ofi
Messrs. W.-W. Culler, C. W. Culler,
T. C. ?lbergotti, L. S. Connor and
others will leave in a week or ten
doys for the hunting grounds on the
lower Santce. We wish them good
luck and a safe return with 'venison
enough for Christmas.
Ma;T. S. McG'rcw, ol Middle St.
Matthews, died of heart dcser.se on
Sunday last. His life was a checker
ed one but no incident iu it excited
his neighbors with a deeper smypa-l
thy than the cruel treatment be re
ceived at the hands of the United!
States Marshal on the day of election.!

Olk young friend, Mr. Frank Rish
er, after a short leave of absence, re-!
turned last week bringing with him
one of Barn well's fairest daughters as
his bride. We wish for the young
souplc along life of happiness and!
prosperity, tempered only by such1
changes as will make their relation
dearer as Ihcy prow older.
It is rumored that George Bolivcr
will not give up the Clerk's ollice when
Mr. Robinson is ready to qualify, but
means to hold it untii the last dollor
is pocketed and will then wait to be
kicked out. On the other hand wet
learn Mr. J. II. Livingston is not only !
ready but anxious to surrender the'
?Shejill'a ollice as soon as Mr. Salley
is ready to receive the keys.
We hear complaints (rom every
quarter of tbo wretched condition of
the roads. The long spell of wet
weather, at the hauling season has
made the roads well nigh impassable
to every kind of vehicle. We never
6aw the streets of the town in such a
condition before?the sternest busi
ness necessity only forces one to at
tempt a crossing.
Tim speech of the evening at the
anniversary meeting of the Elliott
Hook and Ladder Company was made
by Captain John A. Hamilton, who
handled the tender subject committed
to his care in such a chaste and elo
quent manner as to impress every
one present ffith the sacredneas of!
his theme, "Woman,*' whoso virtues!
and beauties certainly found a true;
defendeut in Captan Hamilton. j
We arc informed that Mr. J. II.
Livingston has at lust made a settle- j
ment with the Stale and comes out
with tho State in debt to him. This'
is unusual ami seems to indicate re- i
missness of duty on the part of some-;
body. Why should the stale allow it I
itself to get in the debt of any of its 1
ollleialsor why any official should re
main, for years without a settlement |
when he knew the state owed him? is
a question that gives rise to thought.
In many sections of the county the
cotton lields are yet white with the
fleecy staple, much of which will be
lost on account of the unfavorable
weather for picking. Wo hear of oue
large planter near Fort Motte, who
has two hundred acres from which
not a boll has as yet been gathered.
11c is culling the slocks down and
hauling them homo for the purpose
of gathering it In-doors. This plan
might be adopted with advantage by
others who have more cotton in the
field than they are able to gathering.
Negroes, tit this season ol tho year are
not disposed to work at. any price and
farmers will find it diflleult to hire
