?The last syllable of the word

?It is said that cotton seed are selling
in town for forty cents per bushel,

low rales: From Columbia $3.90 and
j/; from Winnsboro $4.95. - Who will
take advantage of the cheap rates for a
trip to the City by the'Sea?
Patriotism.?There are probably as
many as thirty gentlemen in town who
would be willing to sacrifice themselves
for the good of their country and
accept the Russiau mission which Gen.
Lawton has seen fit to decline. The
idea that patriotism is on the decline
has received some stunning blows since
the accession of the Democratic party
to power.
The Treasurer's Settlement.?We
ciip the following from the Inezes and
Courier of Wednesday:
James Q. Davis, treasurer of Fairfield
county, made his annual settlement
in the comptroller-general's office
to-day. The settlement was remarkably
good.
It is a matter of congratulation that
we have such an efficient officer to
look alter the nnances ot our county.
Ovkktakek.?Jno. Miles, a youngnegro
fellow, apparently about twentyone
years of age, was arrested by
the police here on Tuesday morning.
A dispatch asking that he be detained
had been received from Ward's Sta-.
tion, a small place on Charlotte, Columbia
& Augusta Railroad. He is
charged with larceny, but of course
has no recollection of ever having committed
such an offence. He says that
he was formerly a partner of Dr.
Salvo, aud was through here with that
gentleman six or eight months ago.
But One Redress.?Two of the
"follows" were tried last week for
wife-beating, another awaits trial and
another still complains that the tables
have been turned and wants to know
! what a gentleman is to do when his
wife subjects him to the indignity of
the cowhide in the presence of company.
It was admitted by counsel
that the case was a hard one, and the
unfortunate gentleman was advised
that his redress lay in the direction of
the West, which is still au asylum for
criminals and outraged husbands.
Misdescription*.?We were inform
eu vy a cuuuueruitu evuugeu&L a, iuw
days since that the fraternity look
upoii our quiet little town as being peculiarly
the home of impudence. "It
is impossible" he said "for an innocent
drummer to show himself on the
street without being subjected to the
indignity of some aggravating sell."
We can't deny the fact that tbe boys
are a little mischievous sometimes, but
it is quite certain that there has never
been any such drummer here as he
describes.
_ i ..
We Can't^ake Much More of It
?An exceedinghsfine looking fellow
stepped into this (lays
since and discoursed for an hour and a
half on the rascality of the times. We
listened to him very patiently in hopes
that he would in conclusion pay up
what he owes the paper. But having
finished, he stalked out with a turkey
goDUier strut wnnout so mucnias suggesting
that we could take part of it
out in turnip greens. "We don't want
to hear any more of his rant again
soon.
TheJFTop.?There was a very pleasant
hop at the Winnsboro Hotel on
Thursday night. The ceremonies were
opened at about nine o'clock with a
grand march and. continued until two
a. m., in constant alternation between
germans, polkas, lancers, and occa|
sionally the quadrille, to give the old
folks and church members a chance. I
The girls wore their brightest costumes
and sweetest smiles, and some of them
are said to hare made con quests of
more importance to a small portion of
the English-speaking world than the
victory of Komaroff at Penjdeh.
The Sling-Shot Peoblem.?We call
attention to the fact that something

the sling-shot. They are a dangerous
and warlike combination, and there
are several brigades of them in town
|
^just now. Besides the depredations
in their immediate line, which are
charged against them, it is said that
they make it a rule to follow the Gordons
to the green on drill evenings
and [keep up such a pow-wow as to
drown the commands of the officers.
The problem is offered to the Town
j Council for solution.
Stealing his own Cotton.?We clip
the following from the Greenville
News:
The Union lawyers are puzzled over
the case of a ne?jo farmer who left
cotton at a gin, taking a receipt for it.
During the night he stole his own cotton
from the gin yard and hid it. He
then demanded pay from the owner of
the gin for the lost cotton. The question
now is, what kind of criminal
prosecutiou will lie.
HPVio friol r?-f* i r-fiol/I
j not hesitate with this fellows case.
They would very properly convict him
of larceny if the case came within their
jurisdiction; if not they would promptly
bind him over to the Conrt of Sessions
for trial.
m
The Memorial Association.?"We
are requested to announce that there
will be a meeting of the Memorial As;
sociation at the Thespian Hall on Fri
! day morning, at ten o'clock. It is
hoped that all the members will be
! present. It is also desired that the
ladies of the county?in the country as
well as in town?will become members
of the Association and lend their assistance
in promoting the aims of the
ui^oui/^Ltiuu. iui: uujttuis wmuu 11 i>
designed to accomplish arc dear to the
hearts of the good people?men and
women alike?of Fairfield, and we
trust there may be such a union of
efforts as to accomplish all that is desired
Let the ladies all come to the meeting
on Friday.
The Antithesis of tee Great Eastern.?A
small "menagerie" drove
into town on Friday. It consists of a
Turk and bis family, a bear and a
monkey, ?. ftog and too roosters, mak
ing in all a very interesting company.
The office of bear is to dance with the
Turk while the monkey makes a very
lively vis-a-vis at the other end of the
show with old lady. The dog growls,
the roosters crow and the children
1 look on. All have something to do,
1 and each seems to appreciate the im
portance of bis part very fully, f hey
say they have been bat a short time
in this country. The head of the
family claims to have served six years
in the Turkish army, but says that he
has no peculiar fondness for fighting.
\JKAJX3IATICAL i'ROPRIETl .?IS It C01- !
rect to say seveii and five is eleven, or
seven and five are eleven? The question
was submitted by a thirsty looking
fellow t-.> a wide-awake crowd in
front of the court-house 011 Friday.
One of them, an elderly gentleman,
who has revised two or three grammars
in his life, replied very promptly
that a singular verb should be used,
and explained that the full reading
would be, "the sum of seven and five
is eleven," and this he said was entirely
correct. The thirsty man wanted
to bet the old grammarian couldn't
go back on his judgment, and as we
left he was writing off for ice cold
lemonade, the balance of the crowd
smiling at the delightful prospcet.

man that he is a fool for he won't believe
you, and besides in some cases
the information will lead to a fight.
Never tell one either that your ancestors
were superior to his, this is also
regarded by many as a casus belli.
You mav tell a young lady that she is
a flirt and she will smile at the soft
impeachment; but if you tell her that
she has store teeth, a pug nose, or big
feet, or that she is anxions to get married,
she will never abide you the
longest day she lives. Never tell the
faculty of a col lege that you have been
on a "rampage"; this is one case
where honesty is not the best policy.
Above all things never call a man a
liar with a dash before the substantive.
The lie with a dash before it means a
fight the world over.
A Novel Case.?On Wednesday the
ease of tbe Stale vs. Henry Warren,
(white), charged with an assault and
battery on the person of his wife,
Patsev Warren (colored), was heard.
It seems that the defendant and the
prosecuting witness were duly married
twenty years ago, prior to the Acts of
flm T oiricld^ni-o nifthihifiiior infnr.
marriage of the races, and while it
might be supposed that the romantic
love which induced the defendant to
ignore the barriers?at least of race
prejudice in this case?and take this
woman for his lawfully wedded wife
would be a practical insurance against
even the suspicion of violence it turns
jut otherwise. At all events the defendant
was found guilty, and senw&SStJprwvijay
a fine of twenty dollars
and the costs or. ?[o to jail for thirty
days. The testimoniT"T$i?<iiosed some
amusing, though not altogether decent
incidents. The accused bore himself
through the trial as though he was
conscious of the fact of his heroic position
ivr>ninner nil thp whilpi ft. sicklv

that seemed to frown in lofty superiority
on the dusty flap -of his shoes below.
:
Was the Conclusion Erroneous,?
A very excited discussion arose in the
rear of the Court-house on Wednesday
morning. A number of lawyers
and merchants, a couDle of farmers.
the Intendant of the town and the
Sheriff of the connty had met there accidentally
and were exchanging the
congratulations of the season. Commonolace
topics having been about exhausted,
the crowd would perhaps
have dispersed the next moment, but
one of the number about this time discovered
sitting on a stump near by an
object which bore unmistakably marks
of design. Iso one present had any
recollection of ever seeing anything
like it before and it was of course approached
with becoming caation. Indeed
it was with obvious hesitation
that an attorney who is noted for his
recklessness would consent to lay his
hands on it at all. But he at length
did so, bepeving no doubt that it was
at the risk of his life. Seeing that no
harm resulted, it was then freely
handled by Jail, and speculations as to
its origin, and the purposes it were
were ijlueiiueu lu &ciyc iauyv ocl jlii. a
number of hypothesis were advanced,
some of them hotly discussed aud all of
them ultimately pronounced unsatisfactory.
It was finally suggested by
the Inteudant that it must be a dynamite
cartridge and the entire crowd
was disposed to agree with him. To
test this conclusion however the object
was again placed on the stump and all
retired to a safe distance to smash it
with a rock, and after three quarters of
an hour of very close throwing, the
r>nf o -firm nnirnrl An if

That was the end of it, it was broken
all to pieces, but there was no explosion.
The crowd was disappointed
but still think it was a dynamite cartridge
which had lost its explosive properties.
We were not fortunate enough
to see it before it was broken, but we
have a few of the pieccs from which
we find that it was labelled, the word
"Export" appearing when two of the
fragment are joined togetner.
In the Trial Justice Court.?On
Monday the case of the State vs. Millie
Anderson and Charley Rinkum, charged
with enticing away a laborer under
contract was heard. It seems that a
daughter of the defendant, Millie An
derson, under twenty-one years of age
bad hired herself to the prosecuting
witness, but the moiber T>jt being- altogether
satisfied with the arrangement
hitched up her cart and accompanied
by Kinknm, drove over to the prosecutors
and moved the girl back. The
defendants were convicted and appealed.
On Tuesday the case of the State vs.
W. D. Park, charged "negligently al
lowing his stock to run at large," was
heard. It was found that the defendant
had not been "negligent" and he
was acccordingly acquitted.
The State vs. Dennis Gibson was
heard on Tuesday. He was charged
with assault and battery, his wife
oemg tne complainant. It appeared
from the evidence that he had given
her a frailing of unusual severity and
the court desiring to impress upon him
if possible, the fact that such behavior
; *!'

is contrary to the spirit as well as to
letter of the law went as far as a proper
resrard for jurisdiction would allow,
and gave him one hundred dollars or
thirty days. There are not a few in
tiiese parts who think the whippingpost
the only proper remedy for snch
cases as this.
The State rs. Anderson Bates, charged
with wife-beating, was heard on Thursday.
The wife's father appeared as
prosecuting witness and testified that
she had been to the best of his knowl? i
edge, information and belief, the recipient
of a most outrageous flogging.
Bat when she was put up to testify all
of her old love for the defendant
seemed io reassert itself, and she swore J
point blank that she had the most
affectionate husband in the world, that
lie had never struck her a blow in bis
life, and she couldn't imagine what
her esteemed parent was driving at;
whereupon the Court very summarily
dismissed the case.
On Saturday the State vs. Sam Bailv,
charged with carrying a concealed
oeadly weapon, was sent up to the
Court of General Sessions for trial.
The State vs. David Snber, charged
with breach of contract, was tried and
he was found not gniltv.
The State vs. J. C. Stewart, charged
with assault and battery, was also
tried. This case was submitted to a
jury, and a verdict of not guilty was
returned.
luJEMOBIJL DAY.
Messrs. Editors: We are reminded,
by the soft beauties of the opening
spring, of the near approach of that
day when, throughout our Southern
land, the hearts of our own people
turn loyally and lovingly to memories
of the now far past, and, forgetting for
awhile the strife and dust of the battle
of life, pause to place fresh garlands
upon the graves of our Confederate
dead and fondly remember their devotion
to duty, which they sealed with
their lives. "
Last year Memorial Day was celebrated
here for the first time since the
war; bat the spontaneous tribute of
our people to the occasion showed
how tender a chord had been touched,
and that it only needed the suggestion
to bring out the warmth and tenderness
of their feelings for the past.
A Memorial Association was organized
bv the ladies. I am fflad to learn
that the ladies of the Association are
making an early beginning, so as to
ensure ?. successful celebration and on
a larger scale than the one so auspiciously
inaugurated. Much credit is
due to the ladies for the success of last
year, with such a short time in which
to work. But the celebratiou should
embrace the whole county, and our
friends from the country should have
ample notice of the time and of the
programme to be observed. The
cheerful aid of the gentlemeD of the

The wooden shaft used last year
stands as a reminder of our duty to
our dead, and as a silent promise of
the fruition of the hope that lingers in
every heart?that one day we shall see
its place taken by a shaft of enduring
granite. '. >
Is it too much to express the hope
that on this Memorial Day, without
neglecting our daty to the living, a
beginning, however small, may be
made of such a tribute to the Confed
erate dead of Fairfield comity?

I am now ready to supply the demands
of men, youths and boys in Spring Suits,
My stock is large and the assortment beautiful
as well as the changes in styles. The
Cutaways, cut in whipcord, worsteds and
plaids, are very neat and well made, with
suitable linings to match the goods. The
sacks are ci the same material, and are
made in all the leading styles. Just here
one particular style needs mentioning?the
Norfolk suit wtacn lias Decome very popular
for the past season, and one of the
most comfortable suits ever worn. Clothing
is cheaper now than it has ever been
before, and a thorough knowledge of the
market has enabled me to buy this stock at
the lowest market value.
My stock of Cents' Furnishing Goods is
now complete, with an assortment of un-'-j
derwear in all sizes in gauze Lisle Thread
and Balbriggan. Fancy and Plain Half
Hose in great varieties. Knowing that in
buying Neckwear all persons arc particular,
I have endeavored to select every
desirable new style of Flat Scarfs, Puffs
and String Ties. These goods are made
from the best silk material, and are sold at
a price for inferior grades.
A word with you in regard to Hats. The
trade in this line is increasing so fast that
it has become a leading specialty and has a
department by itself. I always endeavor
to iceep the latest styles, made of the best
material that will stand the wear. My
spring styles of Stiff Hats are made with a
view of being comfortable to the wearer.
They will shape to any head and are made
very light in weight "and well ventilated.
The soft goods are also complete in tbeir
occArtmont T hnvA thft lftrTftst stoo.k nf
Straw Hats that I have ever had, in view
of the fact that the demand for these goods
increases ever}' season, and I am prepared
to wholesale as well as retail in the Hat
Department as well as the Clothing Department.
Do not forget the line of handsome
Shoes, in gaiters and low-quarters, that I
have In stock. The styles of shoes do not
change so readily as hats and clothing.
The principal object being to make them
as comfortable as possible.
I would like to have you call and examine
the stock. It will be a pleasure to
show you the goods whether you purchase
or not. Respectfully,
M. L. KrVARD.
