PUBLISHED SEMI-WEEKLY, -BY WINNSBORO PUBLISHING CO. J. FRANK FOOSHE, . - - EDITOR. TERMS, TN ADVANCE: One Year,............................$t50 Six Months........................ .. .75 WINNSBORO, S. C. Tuesday, January 8 -- 1901 THE General Assembly meets to-day. How would you vote if the proposition to issue bonds for the bnilding of the Winnsboro aud Camden Railroad were submitted to you? Have you considered which way your vote would best serve your interest and that of your community at present and in the future? SUPERITENDENT McMOAN in his report especially urges upon the legislature three measures the appropriation of $200,000 to the general school fund, better - supervision of the schools through expert supervisors elected by 6the than a political system, and the eniployment of an assistant superintendent. We are heartily in favor of all three. Tmis is an excellent time for teachers to -interest their pupils in the legislative department of our government. How our legis lators are elected and how our laws are passed are of as much importance as any questions that can be presented to our future citizenship, and they are ques tions that should by all means find a place in the school-room.

RELATV SINSOUTH CAROLINA A sheep killing dog up in Maine has eaten up his master's farm ana died. The dog killed a neighbor's sheep and the neighb ar proposed to settle the matter if the dog was killed. The owner of the dog would not have his dog killed and a law suit followed. The owner of the dog had to mortgage his farm to pay costs and damages and the next thing was the surrender of the farm to pay the mortgage. The dog's master is homeless and the dog is dead.-Cbeter Lantern. This same Maine farmer who loRt all to save his dog has relatives. in South Carolina who are willing to let their neighbors lose their all to save their own dogs. As an instance, the Messrs. Kinard, of Kinety Six, who are among the largest sheep raisers, recently lost over a hundred dollars worth of sheep by worthless curs. But stili Tbe legislature will pass no aws gainst the keeping of these d)gs. Judged by their actions we would onclude that some of our legislators are close kin to the inan in Maine.

The money prizes had been ispensed with at a previons meeting, and nothing changed hands but the medals. The only thing tbat marred our meet ing was the thoughts that one of our most active members was not there, and never would be again. Yea, he is gone. God, in his divine providence, has called him where he will toil no more with this world' tr-uhles. Though he had inen confine.1 to toe house tbs vdr, his name will appear first among the prize winners: T. W. Rawls, cotton prize3 No. 1, 646 pound. lint.

A young lady had tried hard to ge t a young gentleman to take the temper ance pledge, tried in vain, and he of fered her his arm, but she replied that &be would never put her arm through another jug handle.
