We refer our readers to the adver

Great fun and profit is promised for

We stated in our laBt issue that
Mr. T. S. McGrew, of Middle St.
Matthews, died of hesrt disease. This
sve learn is an error aud wc gladly
jaake the correction. Mr. McGrow
.died of Phneumonia contracted from
exposure while under arrest on elec
tion day. The arrest was made by
Sam Lewis and other negroes, and
for the exposure which resulted in tire
death of this old gentleman Uiey are
directly ..responsible, and should he
punished for it.
Wk had the pleasure or> Wednes
day of meeting Mr. W. L. Gary, the
polite and enterprising business man
ager of Mr. Cornclson's mercantile
establishment. Mr. Gary is a native
of Newberry County and has been
doing business in Columbia ever since
the war with unparalleled success as a
?alesuian. His extensive experience
in this position and unusual business
tact make him quite an accccsion to
Mr. Oornelson's establishment, and
we predict for him a future- career in
Orangeburg as popular and successful
es his past has been.

Insurance is a safeguard against the

Outi citizens nrc enjoying the rare
treat of a week's amusement in tho
sun-light pictures being exhibited by
Mr. G. R. Tremaino. These pictures
arc \ the \ representations of scenes
and places visited by the exhibitor
during months of travel in Europe
and the Holy Land, and as a work ol
art cannot be surpassed in execution
and close resemblance to nature.
The representations include the
grandest natural scenery of the world,
the most magn ficcnt buildings ol
Europe, tbc best examples of ancient
and modern Slutuary the finest part
ing of the masters nnd the leading
citios of tho old world. As a
school this course of entertainments
furnishes as accurate information in
history and literature as is possible
i in so short a time and as a source ol

I elevating and enjoyable. On to

these of Iho main course wc advise

We had a pleasant call from Mr.
J. II. Goodwin, General Traveling
' Agent of Foutz's Medicines, one day
last week. He is a clever gentleman
and wc commend him to the brethren
of the press.
A visit to Kortjohu's Cheap Cash
Store at this time is realty instruo"
live and remunerative. One has no
idea how many bargains arc to bo
had until they go and see for them
selves. One pleasing feature in this
establishment is that they arc not
puffed up by their success, but every
one is willing and anxious to show
you around and sell you low down for
cash?for you must remember that
the secret of Kortjohn's success has
been the cash trade. He makes no
exceptions. Keeps no slate. No
memorandums in cash drawer, but
gives sledgo hammer bargains in ex
change for the American dollar. With
alert, experienced buycis of rare
jndgmeut, pluck, audacity and abili
ty, having unlimited command of
that one thing that will buy the
world, they are able to watch and
take advantage of these splendid
chances and offer to their customers
who are not afraid of the insane cry
of auction goods, jobs, leaders and
specialties well calculated to unsettle
the brain of the buyer on time at fifty
per cent, on goods interest added.
It injures no fabric to drive it through
the giant engine of U. S. Marshal and
assignee, the Sheriff nnd the auction
mart of the city. It only changes
the price from a very high to a very
low figure. The slock of this store
has been largely replenished during
the week and they are now prepared
to meet the demands of their many
frieuds. In nddition to the heavy
stock they aic now opening the fol

would do well to notice : Silver plat

Between 11 and 12 o'clock on
Monday night last, the alarm of Are
was)given and our firemen and citizen
gathered rapidly at the residence of
Mrs. John Glover on Jail Street,
where the kitchen was already envel
oped in flames. The Hook and Lad
der Company soon pulled the building
down and allayed all fears of the
flames spreading though tbewind was
blowing briskly from the North
West. Uucle Joe had nothing to do
but extinguish the fallen and burning
walls and lo prove by his excellent
performance that the mishap of a
tumble from the side-walk into the
mud had not impaired his effective
ness. Tho cause of the lire is not
known but thought to be accidental.
The loss will not exceed three hun
dred dollars. No insurance;
Skyeuai. young negroes were be
fore tho Mayor this week for profani
ty. They were spoken to by a gen
tleman at the depot, but this only
made tho mailer worse. They seem
ed to think that the most indeccnl
language before ladies was a special
right. The Chief of Polieo, on com
plaint, Iheu took charge of them, and
the Mayor gave them a warning. The
streets and public places are offensive
on account of the young blackguards
idling around, nnd every citizen is
bound to report what is a disgrace to
a well ordered community.
