Four Appointments Covered
This Week.
The candidates for county and
legislative offices are winding up
the first week of the campaign
at Ridgeway today, when they
will take a rest until next Tues
day. The four appointments
l'?easterville, Monticello, Green
Irier and Ridgeway, have been
'well attended and the speakers
were given courteous attentioni.
Tlie candidates are conducting
th4ecampaign on a high plane
and the best of feeling prevails
am'ng and with all of them. Mr.
R. A.Meares, a candidate for
the Legislature has not been
with the party on account of his
attendance as a delegate to
Washington to see what could
be done to secure legislation
looking to the relief of the cot
ton crop. Mr. R. T. Gladden, a
candidate for county Con1mis
sioner, has also been absent.
With these two exceptions all of
the other candidates have been
I'present and appeared before the
people setting forth their respec
tive claimns for the suffrage
of the people of the county.
The weather and Ithe hash has
been fine--the latter such as can
only be fou in Fairfield County.

.War News Meager.
War news from Europe if
strictly censored by English
authorities and The Associated
Press has suggested the desira-a
bility of this fact being placed
before the readers of the papers
which are members of theb
association. The reports are
meager and unsatisfactory in
every sense.
New York, Aug. 12.--Thea
restriction of its cable service o
since the out break of the
European war was described in C
detail tonight by the Western C
Union Telegraph Company. All d
telegraph connections with Ger

are broken and cables leading to
other countries are subject tot

Germans and All
to Clash Soon
is Reported
That a great battle is impend
ing between the Germans and
the British, French and Belgian
allies, is the news that comes
out of London. For days thesE
opposing nations have been
bringing up their forces, which
now stretch in two long lines in
northern Belgium and along thE
French frontier.
That the advance guards arE
in contact is evidenced by theire
ports of serious engagements ai
various points, perhaps the most
important at Haelen.
The first dispatch direct from
Berlin uncensored by authoritis
of the nations at war with Ger
many was received by the Asso
ciated Press through the medium
of the Goldschmidt Wireless com
pany's station at Tuckerton, N.
J. The message contained th(
important information that dur
ing the fighting at Muelhauser
considerably over 1,000 French
officers and soldiers were taker
by the Germans, who also cap
tured four cannon, while ir
another fight with the French or
the border of Lorraine, further
to the north, the Germans alsc
took 1,000 prisoners. The dis
patch adds that German soil has
been cleared of French troops.
Developments in the war zone
which appears chiefly confined tc
Belgian territory, are madE
vague owing to the strict
censorship over news relating tc
Positions occupied by the main
French, Belgian and British
forces are not permitted to bE
disclosed, even approximately,
so that their plan of campaign
can not be assumed.
As to the German forces, in
dications from various sources
point to the concentration of the
main body with its'right wing in
Belgium and its left winz in the
duchy of Luxemburg. The Ger
man staff is said to have gather
ed 26 army corps along the east
ern frontier facing Belgium and
rance. Many of these troops
robably are stationed in the
'reat fortresses in Alsace-Lor
'ne and along the Rhine. One
atch asserts the defense of
any's Russian frontier has
left to armies made up of
rves. Although all of these
trained soldiers it would

The' dispcsitions and strength
of the French invaders in Alsace,
where they are said to hold a
long line within the German
border, are being kept rigidly
On the sea, the reported safe
arrival in the Dardanelles of the
German cruisers Goeben and
Breslau has led to rumors of
their probable dismantling until
the end of the war.
In the north Atlantic, although
Rear-Admiral Cradock has de
clared it "clear of German
cusras far south as Trini
dad,''the French liner Rocham
beau, which was to leave yester
day with French reservists,
was held in New York by orders
from France.
In the North sea, which the
British government says may be
stewn with mines, the squadrons
of British battleships are still
cruising, but their position is not
publicly known. Neither is the
location of thie Main German
Reports from Dover at the
eastern entrance to the English
channel say heavy cannonading,
lasting an hour, was heard this
morning coming from the direc
tion of the North sea.
"The Austro-Hungarian fleet,
owing to the declaration of war
by Great Britain, together with
that of Germany, is said to be in
the Adriatic, where it was
recently occupied in hlockading
the Montenegrin coast.
The British squadron in the
Mediterranean is strong and has
the support there of almost the
entire French fleet.

strong force of German cavalry,
supported by infantry and artil

I don't think widowers like 1
yself should be too harshly
-iticised for wanting to marry
rain. It just shows apreciation
womankind. I explained this
our preacher. He was very
uch touched over my sad count
iance under the weeping willow
ee on the day of my wife's fun
al and occompanied me to home
ie next day and sought to com
iserate me in the following
Lanner: He said, he did: "My
rother, I know that this is a
reat grief that has overtaken
)u, and though you are com-!
elled to mourn the loss of the
ae who has been your compan
in and partner in life, I would
)nsole you with the assuranceI
.at there is another who sym
athizes with you and seeks to
rnbrace you in the arms of un
ailing love." To which I ex
[aimed gazing with hope into
is face, "Parson tell me the
ame quick." To my utter dis
.pointment, he said it was God,
vhen I was. hoping it was the
oung widow of Crooked Creek.
Pursuant to an invitation I ap
eared before a mass meeting of
e citizens of Winnsboro to dis-,
uss the subject of sanitation
nd how best to rid the town of
ialaria by the extermation of
he mosquito. They asked me if
could make the extermation
nd I told them that I could, but
hat I would have to know just
ow many there were. Mr.
done said that he had made tnis
.n item of study on the waterI
vorks question and by actual
Qunt had found the number
0 be exactly fifty trillion (50
00,000,000,000). This was dis
uted both by Mr. Henry Catch
ngs an'd Mr. Henry Phips. Mr.
'hips said he had counted all
hose and more too, Mr. Catch
ngs shook his finger menacingly
Lt Mr. Lone and asked if he had
ounted all those lying around
Lnd hatching in tin cans. Mr.
)hips wanted to know if any
ody like himself had counted
he eggs in old water melon rines
>n Sunday. Mr. Lone admitted
hat he had not, but maybe the
nedical students from Charles
;on could throw some light on
;he question. About this time
dl&. Dutch McMaster knocked a
nan down. He was a great big
fnan too. Some say his name
was Ed Dun, and there was
nuch confusion until Mr. J. 0.
3oag restored order by knocking
lown a half dozen people, more
>r less. The discussion was re
uiued and a committee was ap
iointed consisting of Mr. Jolly
lay as Chairman to make the
Axact computation. Young Gay
a portes, young Brave Walker,1
r. Mackmakehim, Mr. Catch
ks and Wild Woolly Diekerson
b~ipointid to make the
klulation. After sending out
for all the arithmetics in town
utd- using up all the supply of
ead pencils in the County, the
liairman reported that they
dild not agree tha,t everybody
;alked at the same time and no
>ne of the committee would lis
:en to the other. This brought
mn more talk. One man talked
;o 'iolently that.his false teeth
ell our close to Mr. W. W. Ket
:hin, who stomped them angrily,
aying: "Shut up you Chatter
~og" and there was quiet for a
ewrmoments in heaven.
My plan was this: Along the
