THE SECOND DISPENSARY.
County Board of Control Orders It Es?
tablished.
At the meeting of the county board
of control held Friday it was decided to
establish another dispensary in this

September 1st to select the dispenser.
In the mantime if those .who have op?
posed the establishment of a second
dispensary wish to continue the fight
and prevent the establishment of the
dispensary they will have to secure a
petition against the dispensary signed
by a majority of the voters of the
township. If a petition properly sign?
ed is presented to the county board of
control, the board will be forced by
the law to rescind its action and the j
second dispensary cannot be establish- ;
ed.
THE SECOND DISPENSARY.
What the Chairman of the. State Board
Has to Say on the Subject.
Hon. A. B. Stuckev, Mayor, Sumter,
S. C.
Dear Sir : We have recieved and con?
sidered the several petitions signed
by your citizens against the establish?
ment of dispensary No. 2, in Sumter,
as well as the petition of the County
Board in favor of the same. In view
of the long contention as to the advis?
ability of authorizing the County
Board to open up another dispensary
under the provision of section 563 of
the dispenasry law, so that your own
people will be put in a position to
settle the matter for themselves, that
is to say that if a majority of the
citizens of the township in which
Sumter is located are against the es?
tablishment of this dispensary they
can petition the <3ounty Board of
Control not to do sc?, and in this way
end "the matter. I enclose you copy
of a letter that I have written Chair?
man Sanders of your County Board'
pf Control for your information.
Yours truly,
L. J. Williams,
Chairman.
Mr. W. M. Sanders, Chairman Coun?
ty Board of Control, Catchall, S, C.
Dear Sir: The State Board of
Directors have carefully considered
the petition of your Board for the es?
tablishment of a second dispensary in
the town of Sumter and ?also that of
the petitioners against same, and since
the State Board is in doubt as to what
the people of Sumter really want in
the premises, we have determined to
i give our consent that you establish a
second dispensary so that the citizens
of the town themselves will be put in
! a position under the- provisions of sec?
tion 563 of the dispensary law to deter?
mine for themselves what they want.
Hence you will understand that you
are to advertise your intention of es?
tablishing another dispensary and re
I ceive applications from parties desir?
ing to become dispenser so that the
; opposition will be put in a position to
i petition against the opening of another
i dispensary, and should the opposition
be able to present a petition against it
! signed by a majority of the citizens of
? the township in which Sumter is
j situated, you will of course understand
that you are to abandon the project of
opening up dispensary number 2.
There has been a contention for sev?
eral years pro and con in reference to
this matter and we have determined
to allow your own people to settle it
for themselves.
I am sending a copy of this letter to
Mayor Stuckey and enclose herewith a
copy of the letter I have written him.
Yours truly,
L. J. Williams.
Chairman.
BARN BURNED AT REMBERTS.
Mr. E. E. Remberts Suffers Heavy Loss
A large barn on Mr. E. E. Rembert's
plantation at Remberts was bumed
about 3 o'clock last Thursday morning.
The fire started in the loft and burned
downward, and when it was discovered
was too far advanced for anything to
be done to save the building. The
mules which were stabled in the barn
were saved with great difficulty, but
eerything else in the building was a
total loss. Besides a lot of forage there
were about 2,000 bushels of oats in the
barn. There was no insurance on
building or contents. The origin of
the fire is unknown.
It is said that the wind blew at a 40
mile rate for awhile Friday night. No
damage was done so far as is known.
The Palmetto Hose wagon team of
Columbia had a walk over in the An?
derson tournament and did not eqcal
the record of Sumter teams.
Several companies of militia passed
through the city Saturday afternoon
en route home from the encampment
in Anderson, Some of them spent a
couple of hours in town between
trains.
The contract for the new graded
school building is still hanging fire.
Perhaps work will be started sometime
this fall if there is no further hitch
after a contract shall have finally been
made, sealed signed and delivered.
Mr. J. L. Ludlow who made
the plans for the sewerage sys?
tem stated that the system, without
the disposal tanks, will cost approxi?
mately $50,000, or with the disposal
tanks about $65,000. Why then is it
necessary to vote to issue $75,000 sewer?

MAGNOLIA NEWS NOTES.
Matters of Local Interest-Personal
Mention.
Magnolia, Aug. 10.-If the cotton
in this immediate section retains
three-fourths of the fruit it now has on
it the yield will exceed the expecta?
tions of the most sanguine. The
corn crop is about safe. Saturday,
Sunday and Monday are numbered
among the hottest days of this summer.
There is very little sickness in this
community at this writing, and no
serious cases. Our doctors don't look
so cheerful as they did several days
ago. Well, I guess they'll brighten
up later on. Chill and fever season is
approaching.
Old Mr. J. Frank McIntosh, trying
to be one of the boys again, mounted
a young mule this morning, which
took fright at a setter dog, and after
leaping around like a scared goat,
came near lodging the old gentleman
on a clothes wire, which he avoided
by dismounting in such a manner as
was calculated to mako less impres?
sion on the ground He claims that
he alighted in a style best suited to
his taste. Well, it's a funny taste.
Mrs. M: Luther McIntosh, after
two weeks absence, visiting relatives
in Sumter and Eastover, has returned
and old man Luther is wearing a con?
tinuous smile, all over his face.
Miss Mattie Tarrant, sister to our
most popular Dr. Tarrant, is visiting
in this place.
Mr. B. F. Jones, of Georgetown, is
in town today.
Miss Mag Jones is visiting her
friend, Miss Martha Lizzie McIntosh.
Messrs. Griffin and Rhame's wide?
awake salesman, Mr. Jno. F. Mc?
Intosh, may engage in business in
Georgetown in the near future.
Mr. Tommie McIntosh, under the
skillful attention of Dr. E. F. Darby,
is improving fast and is complaining
of short rations.
Mr. W. T. McLeod is complaining,
but|his locks won't justify sympathy,
so "Bill Tom" will have to reduce his
rations both in quality and quantity
before we can express any sorrow.
Occasional. .
Ditched on Public Road.
Goodwill, S. C., Aug. 10.-The
country seems to be going wild on the
subject of goods roads, while our roads
are daily gettting in worse shape than
ever before.
'I visited your city on Saturday last,
and left after the rain ceased. On my
homeward journey, it was very per?
ceptible that the rain was much heavi?
er a few miles east of town, than at
that place.
On reaching the Shaw place, we
found ourself in a sea of water. Roads,
fields and gullies were overflowing.
Just before reaching Chandler's X
Roads, we next found our horse down
in a ditch and after three efforts, she
succeeded in regaining her feet, then
down went buggy and driver, into the
open ditch, which semed very much
deeper and wider than it really is, on
account of the sudden jar that follow?
ed.
.On getting out of this trouble and
on examination .we found the bridge
had been washed away, all perhaps
save the stringers, and the bottom of
the ditch was the next landing place
for travelers, at which place doubtless
many landed, as it was Saturday
evening, and we saw a good many in
town.. I found it was about all that
my horse could do ie get up and out
of the ditch with a light buggy and a
lightweight man in it. But when
along came the lien horses with heavy
loads and vehicles, they must have
fared much worse than we did. Our
damage as far as has been ascertained,
consits in sprung axle, and we feel pro?
foundly grateful thac it was not a
broken neck or limbs.
The point that we wish to call at?
tention of our county officials to, is
the miserably .careless manner in
which these small bridges are con?
structed. The coverings should be
nailed down if there are only two
plank ito the bridge, and not be simp?
ly laid down without nailing, as is the
present custom. These small, shallow
ditches that cross our public roads are
much more liable to overflow, than
are the larger ones across the bigger
streams, from the fact that the latter
are most generally built above high
watermark, while the formerare built
with no view to high tide. Good roads,
mean safe roads, and a few nails
driven into these small bridges will
add very materially to . the safety of
the traveling public, and prove very
much less expensive than damages to
stock and vehicles. In fact, all
bridges, should be nailed down. One
scarcely ever crosses a bridge that
spans a stream where fishing is done,
but he finds the coverings of them
drawn an end to make a seat for the
fisherman, and left in this condition
for their next use and convenience.
We are not censuring our Supervisor
or any one for our mishap, for the
amount of rain that fell at the points
named, was what might be termed a
cloud burst, (or a bad leak) and we
don't know - when, or where these will
occur, but must insist from now on,
in having these bridges nailed down
This is a very reasonable demand,
and we feel satisfied friend Bill Seale
will see the logic in it.
S. W. Barfield.
The Sumter Lumber Co.- has changed
hands. It is now being run by Wither?
spoon Bros.
Julius Wright, colored, a brick ma?
son and plasterer who was pretty well
known around town, died on Sunday
night, of paralysis. He was a son of
old Uncle Isaac Wright.
The Standard Oil crowd are said to
have obtained control of the Vir?
ginia-Carolina Chemical Co., and will
now be able to dictate prices on fer?
tilizers as absolutely as they now do
on kerosene oil and other petroleum
products.
The two stores being erected on
Main street by Mrs. Ella Tuomey are
nearing completion and it can now be
seen that the building will be one of
the handsomest and most artistic busi?
ness houses in tbe city. It will be an
ornament to Main street.
The second dispensary issue seems
to have narrowed down to a contest
between the dispensaryites and the
anti-dispensaryites among the busi?
ness men of North Main street.
Other people have their convictions on
the question, but uuless a petition is
carried to them by interested persons,
they will take no active part in the
matter.
Wedgefield News Notes.
Wedgefield, Aug. 12.-The seasons on
growing crops for the past few weeks
have been all we conld wish for and
the outlook is much better" now.
Mr A. E. Aycock is spending the
week in New York buying the fall stock
of goods for Messrs. J. H. Aycock &

The health of onr commnnity with
the exception of a little malarial fever
is very good.
Deliberately Wrecked.
Charlotte, N. C., Aug. 10.-Engi?
neer Black, Fireman Earle and Mail
Clerks Burchfield and Sharpe, injured
in the wreck of the fast mail train at
Gastonia last night, were removed to
their homes today and it is said that
all wiil recover. Railroad men claim
that there is indisputable evidence
that the wreck was deliberately plan?
ned. It has been discovered that the
switch lock was broken with a rock
and the signal light extinguished.
Persons who visited the scene shortly
after the accident confirm this.
The track was cleared about 7
o'clock this morning.
Remembered Five Wars.
Harriett Cato, an aged negro wo?
man died yesterday at her son's home
in Back Swamp. She was 104 years
old. Her "Ole Missus," Miss Lizzie
Cannon, well remembered in this sec?
tion by the older generation of people,
fixed her age some years ago and it
is reliably established. She was living
with her son, Cato Brockington on
the Edwards place. She remembered
five wars, the war of 1812, theSeminoel
and Mexican wars, the War-of Seces?
sion and the Spanish ' war.
This aged woman had been in re?
markably good health and worked on
the farm up to last year. She picked
555 pounds of cotton last year. She
could thread her own needle up to
the time of her death. Her son at
whose house she died is her baby
boy, he is 57 years cid.-Florence
Times.
The total collections from street taxes
now amount to more than $1,500.
The county beard of control held a
meeting Friday.
The macadam now being? put down
on Liberty street will cost, it is es?
timated, about $3,000.
The railroads are arranging to carry
a big crowd cn the annual excursion
to the mountains.
The crops in this county are said
to be improving steadily and the farm?
ers are more hopeful than they were a
few weeks ago.
Some of the members of the Sumter
Light Infantry have not entirely re?
covered from the hardships and plea?
sures of camp life at the Isle of Palms.
Mr. John F. Beard was thrown
from his buggy Friday afternoon
and painfully, but not seriously, in?
jured. His horse bolted and the seat
of the buggy slipped and threw him
out.
The City Board of Education held a
meeting Monday afternoon. The
school contract was discussed, but the
proceedings were not made public.
It is understood that the school build?
ing contract is "in statu quo."
Arthur had a good big ram, but the
wind blew down the fence and he got
away. If any one finds Arthur's sheep
roaming around in the cold world alone,
any attention relief, succor on him
bestowed, or information will be grate?
fully rewarded by the owner of said
sheep, to wit: Arthur Wilder, at J.
Ryttenberg & Sons.
The trial of Mary Jenkins for shop
lifting, which was held in Magistrate
Nettles' court at Privateer Wednesday,
resulted in the conviction of the ac?
cused, who was sentenced to pay a fine
of $20 or serve 40 days in jail. There
are several other cases against this wo?
man and she will be brought to trial
under every charge. Her Attorney H.
DeL. Moise, Jr., gave notice of ap?
peal from the verdict.
Thomas Boykin, a young white man
about 22 years old, was put in jail last
Wednesday for safe keeping un?
til he could be sent to the Hospital for
the insane in Columbia. He became
violently insane some days before,and it
was necessary to incarcerate him to
prevent injury to himself or others.
He went crazy on the subject of religion,
but the cause of his mental break
down is ascribed to cigarettes, as he
was an incessant smoker.
Late as the cotton crop is, there is a
good deal already open in the fields,
and it is probable that the first bale
will be on the market within the pre?
sent week. Mr. W. A. Bowman, who
sold the'first bale last year on August
2nd, has a good deal of open cotton on
his Knox place and with good weather
will be able to pick out a bale before
the end of the week. There are others
who have considerable open cotton
and several have already commenced
picking.
There is a great deal of complaint
because the Atlantic Coast Line does
not furnish proper and adequate ac?
commodations on the passenger train
between this city and Columbia. It
has been the rule of late that the cars
have been so overcrowded with passen- j
gers that many were forced to stanu i
in the aisles/ In more than one in- I
stance a good many white passengers
have been crowded into the negro car,
but even there all were not provided
with seats. m
A repr?sentative of a Chicago firm
of contractors spent Wednesday in the
city looking at the plans for the sew?
erage system and to make an inspec?
tion of the city so as to obtain a per?
sonal knowledge of the character of
work to be done. His firm expects to
bid for the contract when the work is
let.
Insanity is increasing at a startling
rate in Great Britain. From a report
of the Lunacy Commissioners we see
it stated that one out of every 293 per?
sons in that country is classed as men?
tally unbalanced.
Another woman in breeches! All
grading work for a railroad was stop?
ped by Mrs. Mary McKenna, at
Marinette, Wis., a few days ago. She
says that the railroad company has not
paid her enough for her property. She
dressed 'berself in man's attire, pull?
ed a slouch hat over eyes and, with a
stick in one hand and revolver in the
other, drove a crew of one hundred
Italians off her property. The Italians
fled like scared sheep and Mrs. Mc?
Kenna is still in control of the situa?
tion. A woman like that is calculated
to move things.
Sore-Head From Over Stimulation.
Editor Southern Cultivator: Some
weeks ago 1 wrote to you about my
chickens having sore-head. You kind?
ly answered my inquiry by letter, for
which I thank you, but you were mis?
taken in saying sore head comes from
lice or mites. I have handled every
.grown fowl in the yard and nearly
everyone of the chicks and can posi?
tively say they have neither mites or
any other kind of vermin on them. I
have lost quite a number of chicks,
but only a few grown ones with it. I
have tried various remedies, sulphur
and vaseline, sulphur and lard, kero?
sene and vaseline mixed, washed their
heads in copperas water, 10 grains to
the ounce, then greased them with the
sulphur and lard. I think this gave
better results than anything else. But
it has no t cured them all, and the dis?
ease is spreading with the chicks
though they have been kept in separate
coop and yard, and have been kept in
covered coops under a shed at night,
but allowed to run out during the day.
Now what I want to know is the
cause of the disease and the most
effective way to stamp it out.
I fed Pratt's poultry food from one
to three times a week to the chickens,
all winter giving them the dough of
corn meal with the food, mixed with
hot water. I have had an abundance
of eggs all winter, and the chickens
are fat, are still laying and have good
appetites. They have a large range
with plenty of green food and fresh
water, and have goo louse to roost
in. They are nearly all white, but a
few dark feathered ones among them
have sore heads as badly as the white
ones. Probably some of your readers
have had a like trouble and can give [
me a remedy, and the cause of the !
trouble. I am very anxious to know
what to do. Respectfully,
Mrs. C. P. W.

Bigger Asylum Wanted.
During the session of the last gen?
eral assembly the committee of the
state hospital for insane and the
board of regents of that institution
agreed that until further accommoda?
tions were provided the hospital should
not receive more than 1,150 patients.
At that time the population of the hos?
pital was 1,133. The two additional
stories of what is known as "the an?
nex," where white women are kept
has provided room for more than thir?
ty more of this class. The Taylor
building will give room for about 125
more white men. The demands for
admission of patients for July were
unusually large ; the daily census has
risen to 1,169 patients, which is the
largest nmber ever in the hospital at
one time. The present indications are
that before the end of the year the
asylum will have to provide for over
1,200 patients. This is practically
twice as many patients as the institu?
tion contained twelve years ago, when
Dr. J. W. Babcock became superin?
tendent. The question of the increase
of insanity is always an interesting
one to the public but an adequate
explanation of this rapid increase
is not forthcoming. It may be some?
what satisfactory to know that an even
greater increase is going on in Great
Britain and more particularly in Ire?
land. The same urgent proposition is
forcing itself upon the legislature in
all of the states of the Union. Of
course, the increase on the general
population throws some light upon the
incraese of insanity, but other ele?
ments are covered by such terms as
stress, struggle for existence, poverty
-in a word, insanity is largely a pro?
duct of modern civilization. In all
countries many patients are sent to
modern psychopathic hospitals who,
in former times, would not have been
sent to asylums or mad houses. One
of the saddest commentaries upon
civilization of today is the tendency
throughout the world to place upon the
state the burden of supporting old peo?
ple. In France this tendency became so
marked that some time ago it became
necessary for the chamber of deputies
to forbid the admission of the "dot?
ards' ' to insane asylums. In South
Carolina the population of insane
Negroes has increased so rapidly that
while in 1865 there were only five
Negroes in the asylum, last year there
were more Negroes than white patients.
The increase in the population of the
insane in this state is a burden on the
authorities of the state hospital, who
have been allowed only a limited ap
popriation by the legislature. The
board of regents are doing all iu
their power to provide for these un?
fortunate people.-News and Courier.
Small Katherine, who had been
forbidden to touch the ink bottle, had ,
accidentally spilled its contents not
only all over her mother's desk, but
on the rug, several chairs and her
own apron. Her mother, on discover?
ing the state of affairs, had expressed
more surprise than pleasure. When
the father of the f amii ly returned at
night his little daughter met him at
the door and asked :
"Papa, how much does a bottle of
ink cost"
1 ' Oli, about 5 cents. ' '
"Five cents!" exclaimed the ag?
grieved youngster in a tone of deep
disgust. "And to think that mama
would make all that fuss about one
little bottle of ink !"-Lippincotts.
