PUBLISHED SEMI-WEEKLY. WINNSBORO, S. C., FRIDAY, JANUARY 4 1904 . AT JENKINSVILLE, An Interesting Letter from Our Je nkins vile Correspondent "Gift bearing, heart-touching, joy bringing Christmas. Day of grand memories, king of the year. For weeks the air has been breath ug of Christmas, for its coming al ways cats long shadows before. There ha; been much baking, stewing, boiling and the preparing of gcod things otherwise. A magic tool of her needle, "a one-eyed slave of steel" that never yet refused to do her bidding has many a fair one made in the prep aration of gifts for loved ones. Gifts and good~wisnes have filled the air like enowfiakes, and it is indeed a beautiful 4wcustom for which we have a heavenly example. Some one in writing of the philos ophy of Christmas, says, that to fully enjoy it one must be young-very yourig,-that when we grow too old to peep up the chimney ter old "Saint Nick,' Christmab loses half of its fasci nation. That may be so, but children of larger growth manage to extract a deal of enjoyment from the occasion even without the aid of egg-nog. Our little village was tnronged for many days with happy-heartedpeople, making their purchases for the coming holidays, and the merchants have no cause to complain of a lack of trade. Mrs. Agnes Walker, Mrs. Mary chambers and Miss Bessie Boekman, all of Columbia, are being entertained during the holidays by Mrs. T. P. outginer. Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Chappell, of Littleton, are spending Christmas at Mr. Joseph McMeekin's. Miss Lula McMeekin, who has been employed: in a store in Newberry, l1 at Mr. Mc~Jeekin's enjoying the good cheer of hoga. Mr. Olin Bell, now of Columbia, is visitibg relatives in this vicinity. Misses Madie Chappell and Vivian Glenn, who have schools in Kershaw county, have a week's sojourn at home. v Miss Lois Chappell, who has charge a school near Littleton, is spending Xmas wiih her home people. Misses Stella and Emily Ruff, Miss Eloise McMeekin and Mrs. Stafford Curry are the guests of Mrs. Henry Parr, of Newberry county. Mr. Thomas Flonk of North Caro Jtna,, is again here in search of students orbi busipess 'ollege. Ho was en at the home of M. J. -. . Mr. L. A. Bye, -Davis Quarry, has work in the n they'a now his familv with We heartily wel livirg at Long Run e in our midst, come them to a h e from life in avid hope that the ch they came, Pbiladelphia from when to life in a southern co un hood may not prove so t a one as to cause home-sickness nd a longing for return. There was a small social gathering at the h& ..~ndrew Wallace on We4eF ay evening last. Some of our young people were in vited p a reception tendered Mr. J. C. Swyoert, Jr.. and his bride at Peaks, S. (f., on Thursday evening. Gifts were dispensed from a Christ -mas tree at Monticello on Tuesday night. I hear that there have been many merry-makings in that vicinity. kA new year and a new century will soon dawn upon us. So few of the many generations have seen one cen tury turn into another, that we should appreciate living at such a time. Along with the privilege comes the responsi bility, which so few of us realize. T. Jenkinsville, Dec. 28, 1900. th Ih8KIRd YOU hu81! IW3 t Signature of HOME AGAIN The Young People of Aiblon Eeturn Home to Spend Their Xmas Holidays The seribe of this section of out county has to report a very quiel Christmas. GOr holidays have beer spent for the most part in the quiet en joymnent of the home fireside and ii reunited families. Perhaps this is noi the worst kind of Xm~as after all, fot while we have have had few Christ mas gambols to record, we are fortu nate inu having no Xmas accidents 01 criwes to report. The appropriatE sentiment of "Peace on earth and rood will toward men" seems to havE beeni abroad in our community. The seca.en has been signalized for tbi lit'Ae folks, by twa school Christmna trees. Miss Mamie Weir's school hat a tree Monday afternoon and Misi Eunice Rtosboroulgh's Tuesday night. The little folks seemed to have enjoye4 ihemselves greatly and all went homw happy with armfuls of gifts. The oc casion was also taken advantage of b: some of our grown up boys and girl for the exchange of gifts that wer perhaps sent as shafts from cupid bow. Several of .our wanderers retnrne< to spend their Christmas holiday under the p~renital roor. I~ev. J WV. Douglass is down tror his field of lator in Baltimnore, spent ius& a couple of n eeks with his parenti M%-. and1( Nirs. Jiio. S. Donglass. Mr. .Ju.

Th friends of Mr. Walter Bi1< were glad to shako his hand aga-. After spending a few days at home he returned to his place of business, Shelby, N. C. Miss Bessie Simonton, teacher of music in All Healing, spent the Xmas b holidays at home. A Miss Marie Simonton, who is teach- v ing in the county, enjoyed Christmas by the home fireside. . The social life of Now Hope has re- n ceived a very serious blow in the de- a: parture of Misses Ludie and Emmie 3 Simonton for college. Miss Ludie goes to the Dae West Female College and Miss Emmie to All Heaing, N. 0. Some of our young men are very much b down in mouth over it. e We regret very much to report that Mr. and Mrs. Jno. S. Douglass and lamily contemplate moving soon to v Columbia to make that city their future a home. Our community regrets very , much to lose them but hopes that their old home may have safcient attrac- , tions to draw them back again ere 1 long. The young people had a watch b party Monday night to watch the old 1 century out and the new one in. What a tremendous century It has been com- j pared with the preceeding I But the tj general opinion seems to be that its A glory cannot be compared to the glory b that shall be revealed in the new.

Like all very oli persons, he lives almost entirely in tbn past, and his memors is stored wit many amusing reminiscenses.

He belonged to the, well known Fairfield family .of that came, being a son of Rev. G. W. Boggs. ils mother was an aunt of Sheriff . E. Ellison. He was born in Winns boro about 58 years ago, and joined the Fairfield Fencibles on the break ing out of the war, and became a member of the famous 6th BReitunt. AF Seven Pines he was desperately wounded. He engaged in planting on James Island for awhile and sibse quently went into tho insurance .bnsi nese. He moved to North Carolina a naiber of years age, land engaged in the nursery business. He was a good business man, and it is said that his business was a success. His remains were interred in the cemetery of the Presbyterian Church Saturday morning at eleven o'clock. The pall bearers were Messrs. W..B. Gilbert, W. W. Ketchin, D. H. Robert son, Jas. A.

AISASUINa ? negro came r on dty bringing thoenews that Mr. Star P Martin bad been shot, but beyond tis mere fact he could give nothing. Subsequently another negro came to town for some drugs, and he condfiraed the report and gave a more intelligent account of it. Mr. Gayden arrived bout 6 o'clock and brought the news f Mr. Mardui's de'ath. It appears that: Mr. Martin owned a very intelligent: ittle dog, and being himself very deaf1 he depended frequently upon this little *imal to warn him when some one ianted to get in the store. About even o'clock Monday night the littlei og began to bark and indicated that1 oe one was without. Mr. Martin pent to the door, and upon opening it, sceived a gunshot wound in the itomach. The assassin was apparently uly about Eve feet from him. Mr. Martin then got his pistol and firedi hveral times to attract the attention of1 the negroes on the place. Some of his laborers came to him and the neigh hors were summoned. Medical assist-. nce was procured, but his wound was iserious that no hope was entertained or his n$povery, and he died about i o'clock o&4nesday. He was conscious practically tI~the end, and told how it happened, but he could not identify his cowardly assassin. No arrests bave een made. but the Mitford communit y swill do its best to ferret out the mur erer. It is hoped that some c'ue ~leading to the murderer will be found. . Mr. Martiu was about .56 years of age, and leaves a wife and thbree chil ren. The funeral services were head jat Bethesda Church on Wednesday. H lugh Mc. Gaither and Harry Net ies, two negroes, suspected of hiving ad something to do with the murder of Mr. Stark P. Martin, were arrested and brought to town on Thursday night and were lodged in jail. It is lown that these negrees bore ill feel ng against Mr. Martin, one of the men having been indicted by Mr. Martin for s*.ealing cotton from him. Teir behavior aroused the suspicion Jof people in the neighborhood and they were at once arrested. One of tese negroes was in Winnsboro on the morning after Mr. Martin was affai aid that be knew nothing what ever about it, although he stated that he had left there the night before. If it is proved that these negroes ate guilty they will probably receive the pannihbment that they deserve for committing such a dastardly deed. No Bight to Ugunes.
