A Relic of the AVar.?Out near 11
locky Mount, there was found last *
pring, a unique little relic of the late '
rar in the shape of a sutler's check,
irhich was shown us as a curiosity a ]
2w days ago. It was somewhat de- ;
aced, but bv a careful scrutiny the 1
ollowing inscription could be made (
>ut: "P. Sbamon, Sutler, Soth Ilegi- c
lent, Indiana Volunteer?, ten cents in i
oods."' They were used in place of
Qoney by the army, and entitled the ^
[Older to as much goods as his check ]
ailed for upon its face. The one '<
Dund we suppose was lost by a mem- (
ier of the Soth Indiana Regiment dur- j
.lg.Sherman's marchfrom the sea, and
cry likely he was compelled to do 1
rithont his tobacco for several days on
cconnt of his loss. (

Work for Judge and Jury.?The :
ounty jail is rapidly filling up. Two | i
tew boarders were received cn Tues- ;
lay. One for stealing cotton and *
rain from the field, the other for car- J
yinga concealed deadly weapon and ,
ssauit with intent to kili. There is a
;oodiy increase of civil business on 1
he docket also. With the civil and I .
riminal business on hand the lawyers j
re all busy. It is gratifying to know j
hat though there are a number of i
riminal cases on hand they are for :
omparatively small crimes. The citi- ;
ens of Fairfield should feel proud
bat the pages of her history arc not
lackened by those hideous crimes
fhich so often unfortunately disgrace ;
he annals of her sister counties. Howver
poor her soil may be, that county
hose inhabitants hold th2 law in
weetest reverence must win the re-j
noo.f- nnrl admiration of the world. !

Important to Road Overseer?.? 1
There seems to be some doubt as to : i
the authority of overseers of roads to ;
order the laborers liable to road duty , ]
to furnish their own tools and im-;
[ilements with which to work public i
roads. The Legislature has prescribed
statutory regulations which arc clear ] i
find explicit on this subject. Section ' i
108-i of the (General Statutes piovidcs: :
The Superintendent of Highway h
Districts shall divide the highways of j,
[lis district into suitable sections ofi
not less than two miles nor more than |
due miles each, and shall appoint an I <
overseer for each section. He shall j
require the overseer in his highway
district to call out the hands assigned |'
to the respective districts, to work the j1
roads, whenever he deems it necessary, '1
ifter twelve hours notice, and shall i
require every hand to bring with him !:
for use a hoc, axe, mattock, spade, or j j
other tool for work on roads or;'

The committee appointed to act in ! !
conjunction with the building commit- ; 1
cc of the Mount Zion Society, in J
naking an inspection of the present
school buildings, and report their con-1 (
elusions and suggestions to this meet?g,
submitted the following report, ,
ivkicb, on motion, was received as
information: ,
We respectfully report that your 11
committee, in conjunction with two j;
nembers of the Mount Zion Building <
Jommittee, have met ana examined i <
;he school buildings of the Mount Zion ! ]
Society. We found the out school-; 1
ooms in bad condition?worse than j i
fome of us anticipated. We do not i i
,hink in their present condition they j
ire likely to aid the school to prosper, i
uid they may be detrimental to the
wealth of .some of our youth during'
he cold winds of winter. . We found
.he roof of main building in a leaking
;ondition. It is our opinion that the ;
nitbuildings are in such dilapidated i!
rondition as to warrant only the most I!
lecessary repairs to make them tenable '
luring the coming winter. We call !
he attention of the Building Commit- ;
;ce of Mount Zion Society to the re- J
pairs necessary to the outbuildings, j
Uso to the temporary repairs needed
)n the roof of main building, under- ,
:to?ir7ino- flint there are sufficient funds .
n their treasury for said purpose.
We believe "that additions can be
nade to the main building iu such a ]
svav as to utilize the material and ?
. corns now contained in it, without i
demolishing {he structure.
We recommend to this meeting that
steps be taken at once to devise ways !
ind means to build in the near future <
i college on Mount Zion?s hill that will
be iu keeping with Mouut Zion's past
iiistory; that will be comfortable to 1
Diir youth during their hours of mental i
jxercise, and that will bring back to
Mount Zion her former prospertv.
Mr. Reynolds submitted the following
report, which, on motion, wns
likewise received as information:
The undersigned committee, appointed
at the meeting of citizens held on
;he 20th inst., to confer with the Town 1
Council of "Winnsboro, and invite their
jo-operation in the proposed improvement
of the buildings of the Mount ,
Zion Institute, resnecfully report:
That the committee have bad & con- :
fercncc with the Council, and obtained '<
from that body certain information :
touching the resources and liabilities
:>f the town, which is herewith submitted
as a part of this report.
In the absence of an accurate estimate
of the amount expected or desired
Df the Council, and in view of the
impossibility of estimating the probable
income of the town, from and >
alter the expiration 01 me nscai year, i
the Council are unable to Bay to what I
extent, if any, the town shall hereafter
be in condition to aid the citizens in
the object sought to be accomplished.
The following is the 'statement of
the town's resources and liabilities, for
the fiscal year commencing May 1,
1885:

The only outstanding debt against
the town other than the above is
the last engine note which matures
March 10, 1S87, and which will amount
at maturity to $St>0(It
will be noticed that the estimated
liabilities include the debt lor street i
improvement, and one engine note, j
The former will of course be extin- j
(rmslmrl hffhrr> fhr> rommonnfiinpnt ofi
the next fiscal year?leaving, as the
only debt of the town, the engine note
maturing in 1S87.)
In reply to an inquiry from Mr.
G. H. McMaster, Intendant Elliott
stated that it was the purpose of Council
to keep the expenditures closely
within the estimates. The .streets J'
must be kept up, and the cisterns will i
need repair in order fo make them J1
liold water to their full capacity. Al-; i
together, he thought the estimates!
w 7 w
moderate.
Mr. Beaty called attention to certain
sxtraordiuary expenses in the past?
the purchase of Barber's Hall lor ;
5'1,000, the steamer for about $4,000,
liul the street improvement at a cost of >
*1,000?and that the town ought to be
in easier condition during the next six (
L>r eight years.
Mr. Xeil inquired if there were notI 1
*ome legal difficulties in the way of |
the municipal aid desired, and asked j
L'ol. Icion to give his opinion.
Col. Kion said that the charter lim- j i
itecl the bonded debt o! tne town 10 j
$3,000, and no such debt could be
incurred except through the action of '
:i meeting of citizens.
Mr. McMastef inquired whether the '
Legislature could not empower I lie
Council to issue bonds. Col. Eion
replied affirmatively, but tltou<rht the
Legislature would be governed by the !
will of the taxpayers. '
Mr. Elliott supplemented the report '
jf the examining committee with a \
letailed statement of the condition of j'
t.lie buildings, and emphasized the need : {
>f immediate repairs. lie thought the |
most-equitable plan to raise fundjwould
be to issue bonds of the town.
Mr. J. C. Caldwell concurred in Mr.
!/! 1! + r\ P nn/*Ovd t \r aF i
l-lllULl/> V \jt iliv w?. . ,
repairs, and stated that there are funds i 1
now on*hand sufficient to make them. J
Col. TCion, after an allusion to the
circumstances attending the erection of
the brick building now used, suggested
ihat 110 time be lost in putting the
present school-rooms in safe and |
licalthy condition. After that, he j
thought that separate school, buildings,!
three in number, and of wood, should j?
jc erected to the north of the present j ^
main building. Afterwards the main | ,
juilding should be enlarged, and a ;
>tory added for the teacher's residence. : :
Capt. I. X. Withers offered the fol- !
towing:
Resolved, That the Town Council of <
Winnsboro be requested to order an ]
election, at an earJv day, to ascertain i
:he sense of the citizens of (he town
:>n the question of voting six thousand ]
lollars, to be appropriated to the re- ]
building of Mount Zion College; the ]
money so appropriated to be raised by <
lhe issue of twenty-year six-per-cent.

This resolution evoked much discus- i
>ion, and several amendments were
proposed. The following substitute !

Resolvedj That a petition be at once 1
:irculated among the citizens of the
town, for their signature, praying the
Legislature to authorize the Town

per cent., payable annually; one-fiftccnth
of the principal of said bonds j
lobe retired each jear; and the proceeds
of said bonds* to be used for the
improvement of the school property of :
the Mount Zion Society.
Mr. Reynolds offered tn*. fallowing, :
which wa&adopted:
Resolved, That the Mount Zion
Society be requested to appoint a committee
of three, to co-operate with t
similar committee to be appointed bythe
Town Council, in preparing plans 1
xud specifications for a school building, .
Ihe cost no* to excccd $G,000?suchjoint

Rion. G. PI. McMastcr and J. E..McDonald,
be appointed to take the
necessary stepS" for the is?Tfance and
sale of the bonds proposed to be issued.

weeks with friends and relatives in
the northern portion of Chester county.
Cotton and corn are both good there,
especially the latter, in a section of the
county called the "Black Jacks". The
people are lively and jovial, anticipating
a better crop this fall than usual.
Picnics were numerous, and notwithstanding
the high temperature of the
atmosphere, they would engage in the
amusement some call "tripping the
fantastic toe".
Crops in this portion of Fairfield'
have suifered very much from the
drouth that has prevailed for several
weeks. Some say that cotton is damaged
so much that the yield will not be
more than two-thirds of a crop. It
' - .la.

can soon cease grumbling about dry
weather and hard ground and begin
preparing the soil for small grain. The
time for saving fodder has passed and
the farmers generally are very busily
engaged picking cotton.
The third quarterly conference for
Fairfield circuit was held last Saturday
and Sunday at Pine Grove. The Rev.
A. Coke Smith, Presiding Elder,
preached on both days. The official
members were nearly all present. The
congregation on Sunday was large,
as spacious as the church is. The
people could not be seated. During
the conference a subscription was taken
i_ i?;u ?
to raise monuy lu uimu u> nuw ^nu&^ii
at Pine Grove. All subscribed very
liberally?besides the lumber and shingles
over three hundred dollars being
subscribed. A building committee
was appointed, who held their first
meeting last "Wednesday evening and
elected J. Allen Turkctt chairman and
Thomas C. Leilncr secretary and trcas* Ej
urer. Tlicy are fixing to go to work
on the chnrch soon, and we hope the
time is not far distant when the people
around Pine Grove will have as jj,
fine a chnrch as any in the neighbor- ar
liood. Why should they not? for thev sj
are a liberal, church-loving, church- cc
L'oing people.

The Singing-School at Salem.
Mcssi's. Editors: On the loth August
the siuging-school at Salem
Church ctime to its close. It was orw
janized on July 10 as follows: p
Teacher?Miss Mattie C. Boyd. m
Assistant?Miss Mannic Boyd. Si
Secretarv and Treasurer?Mr. C. A. m
Broom.
Chaplain?Mr. T. P. Burgess.
Sexton?Mr. Deckie Broom.

Our school was a success from the er
beginning. We met two days every ^
week?a day being counted a lesson. j,j
We kept this up for twelve days?or th
six weeks. The school at Monticello in
ivas carried on during our rest days, pi
But as each class had the privilege of co
ittcnding the exercises of the other, ca
several ava'led themselves of this op- gj
portunity to learn from so excellent a r
tcacher as Miss Boyd. of
JNliss Boyd is in many respects a
remarkable woman. For years she
? - - ? t-i- 11. A
iias ucciz uuauie wum, uuu
lier lime 311 her "invalid chair', as Pj
some might call it. But she suffers no
pain; is a well developed "woman, and
can endure teaching her schools and C
singing with them, all day long, for
four days in every week. She is a &
sister of the Mrs." Morgan, of Edge- ?
field, about whom there has recently ^
been so much excitement as an instance w
of faith-cure. The friends of Miss b<
Boyd trust that the kind Providence p<
which has restored her sister, may ot
also confer upon her so great a blessing. H
She bears with asublime patience her a]
afliiction and says that she feels so cj
happy and contented and God has _
ffiven her so many friends that she q
really does not know but that she
would rather continue as she is. It is
impossible to be in the presence of n
such a true Christian without being J
impressed with the goodness of God. el
He has indeed deprived "her of the use n'
of her limbs, but He has given her SJ
health, and He has given her vocal y
powers of a high order, so that she is jj
able to earn an independenc living. _
With such a teacher there is no such a
thing as failure, and the largo audience
which attended our closing exercises J
can testify that the singing was accu- c
rate as to time and grand in melody. o
Your correspondent also attended C
the closing exercises of the Monticello ft
school. The attendance was large and A
the singing fine.
Just before the school closed at
Salem a letter was read to the class
from Miss Boyd, expressing her gratification
at the 'welcome she had received
here, and bidding us all farewell.
In a few remarks Mr. Burgess
returned, the tnanKs 01 me scnooi, ana
then we dispersed to our various homes
to think of the many pleasant hours we
had spent together. At Monticello
similar valedictory exercises took place.
Miss Boyd is now teaching in New- r
berry. She will return to Fairfield ^
before long, and will teach classes at
Lebanon, White Oak and Union.
Salem Church has recently been blessed ^
with a gracious outpouring of God's ^
Holy Spirit. May it not be that the ?
influence of this Christian woman, in ^
the songs selected, was the instrument
used to prepare sinful hearts for the ni
earnest preaching of the Ilev. H. B. a:
Garriss? No less than forty-one persons
have been received into the full y
communion of our church, and to no ^
less than twenty-one of these the e<
sacrament of baptism had to be admin- aj
istered.
A music teacher once informed your c<
correspondent that he had observed
that if a man had malice in his heart ,
he couldn't sing, and that on the other 5.
hand singing was the antidote for
milioo ATz-wnr \Incero TMltrtrs. fill ftf pi
us canuot sing, but we can at least
make a joyful noise. Let us do what C]
we can, therefore, to make this world
brighter and happier. ^
"The man that hath no music in himself,
Nor is not moved with concord of sweet
sounds,
Is fit for treasons, stratagems and spoils;
The motions r.f iiis spirit are dull as night,
And his affections dark as Erebus;
Let no such man be trusted."

Loxc-toavx, August 29.-While perusg
your interesting1 paper a few days
iro I happened to notice a brief allu011
to the "sanguine individuals who
>unt their chickens before they are
itched". There is plenty of truth in
, as well as disappointment, as it is
)t best to count be ,10 hand, but be
mtented with the number, more or
ss. I think some of our iarniers
.lilt lofty castles, to see-them scattered
/ the drouth, which has been particurly
severe in this vicinity, excepting
scope of country down towards the

otton picking has fairly begun, and

laces a lively time is expected this
