Scarcity of Labor.?We learned
from a gentleman on Saturday who
had recently taken a trip to the'
northwestern section of the county,!
that laborers were scarcer in that section
than thev have been for a number j
I of years. It seems to be due to the ;
! fact that agents from the Western 1
States have beer, recently stirring np
I the negroes, and pursnading them to;
try their fortunes in the West. It is i
said to be almost impossible to get any j
laborers for wages. We hear that '
they are scarce in other sections of the
Enjoyable Pounding.?On Thursday
23rd iust., the Rev. J. Howard j
f'amAiitor moved into the new par- i
soiiage of the Baptist Church. At 4
o'clock p. m. the ladies of the church :
invaded the house and "pounded" the
occupants?mercifully. Everything j
templing to the Christmas epicure, j
(from a bacon ham to a juicy turkey, i
with the most delicate sweet meats of j
the season) was to be found "dead" i
on the field of honor after the fray, i
Mr. Carpenter is spending more time !
at home than u-ual, and it is thought
he is personally supervising the interment
of the ''honored dead."
The Christmas Trees.?The Mount
Zioa Christmas true tof-.k place according
to appointment. Three hundred
and ten tickets were sold and as many
presents were delivered. Aitnougn j
the arrangements were hurriedly made,
everything passed off very pleasantly.
Mr. \V. 8. Sloan, of Columbia, kindly
acted the part of Santa Claus in the
absence of the regularly appointed
gentleman, who could not be present.
The Presbyterian Sunday-school
Christmas tree was held on Tuesday
night. The tree was a large holly and
was beautifully decorated. All the
children of ihe Sunday-school received
a present. The children all enjoyed
the entertainment hugely. It >vas a
grand success in every way. Mr.
R. M. Huey personated Santa Claus in
an excellent manner.
Personal.?Dr. \V. E. Aiken returned
on Friday from a visit to his
brother, the Hon. D. VVyatt Aiken,
who has been in failing health for a
year or more. He has many friends
here who will be sorry to learn of his
continued ill health.
Miss Wreuie Heath, of Richbnrg.
has been spending some time with
Miss Sallie Crawiord in town. She,
in company with Miss Crawford, left
on Friday for Richburg.
Capt. H. A. Gaillard, Clerk of the
State Senate, .returned home on last j
Weduesdav in fine health and jrood j
spirits. He informs as that he was |
worked pretty hard, but didn't mind it i
mncb. His friends are <rlad to see
him looking so well after a month's
"Wanted a Higher Word."?Tbere
is something indescribably humorous
in the manner of cerain people's use of
the Queen's English. For example, a
recent colored convert to Democracy
in tne Historic uays 01 <o wuu ?i?
"exhorter" at ;hat time, arose to address
the club (colord) with "Mr.
President and Gentlemen ot this "Acclesiastial"
body." The speaker increased
the tension of matters, when
on being interrupted by the chair and
informed that the meeting was not
acclesiastical but political, by replying
with perfect u nconscious humor, "Oh
I knowed that word but I didn't want
it. I wanted a higher word." As
misrht be especled this gentleman has
been heard from again. lie is now a
full-fledged preacher, and at a recent
marriage ceremony between two of his
flock officiated with his usual eloquence.
At the close of the ceremony he was
the first to walk up to the groom and
shake his hand heartily, exclaiming,
"My son I "graduate" vou.,;
To the Merchants.?We offer with
this issue of the paper superior facilities
to advertisers. "VVe are determined
to extend the circulation of the
paper, and we have indicated in this
column to-day the method which we
intend to pursue. We will commence
at once to send the paper to five hundred
people in the county, who have
heretofore not read it. When these
all subscribe or refuse to subscribe
we will try others. Iu this way we
intend that the News and Heraij>
shall be read this year in every reading
laniily in the county. In building
np and strengthening the paper, we
are anxitis to bnild up and extend the
trade of the town, and to this we ask
the co-operation of the merchants.
Pat your prices down to the level of
consistency with the stringency of the
i times, and let the people know what
you arc doing'. Not only the town
but the whole county is intere:>ted in
the prosperity of the countv-seat. The
times are hard but there is no cause
far despair. Let us make a long pull,
a short pull and pull altogether.
Read This.?Iii view of the hard
times we reduce the subscription of the
weekly News and Hkkald frum $2.00
to $1.50 per amain?. And we send
this i?sue to many persons in the
county who have not heretofore been
subscriber. We will continue to send
the paper for a. considerable length of
time in the hope that yon one and all
will subscribe. A county paper is a
I sort of necessary institution, and ought
to be read in every family in the
count}*. All persons ought to know
what is going on at home, and there
are many important matters which
can only be learned in the columns of
tne county : apcr, however inefficient
it may otherwise be as a distributor of
public intelligence. We do not claim
to compete with the metropolitan
weeklies, but we do claim that we
sometimes, and very frequently, publish
matters of more importance to our
readers tbgn anything to be found in
such papers. Subscribe now and we
will endeavor to'give you the value of
yonr money. Those who have already
subscribers for this year will get the
advantage of this reduction in rates.
Death of CoLS. H. Owens
With much regret we chronicle the
death of Col. S. II. Owens, a former
citizen of Fairfield county, who died
on the 13th December, in the seventyfourth
year of his age. De moved
from this eountv abont thirtv-five vears
ago, and was a prominent citizen of
F.orida, his adopted State.
lie served in our State Legislature
from 1S4G to 1848 in company with
E. G. Palmer, J. R. Aiken and \V. W.
Boyce, being at the head of the ticket
in thu election. Since his removal to
Florida he has been a member of the
Senate from that State, and of several
Conventions. Col. Owens was twice
married, first to Miss Alice Heath, ot
Richland, and in 1847 to Miss Mary A.
Dantzler, a full sister of the lamented
Col. Olin M. Dantzler, of Orangeburg.
We clip the following from the Jack
son vi lie Times-Union:
A. dispatch was received in the city
announcing the death of Col. S. H.
Owens, of Alildwood, Marion count}',
Florida, father of State-Attorney Albert.
"VV. Owens, of this city. Col.
Owens was an old and honored citizen
of Marion county, where he h;>d spent
a great part of his life, and died commanding
the respect and confidence of
his large circle of friends and acquaintances.
District Attorney Owens,
and in fact the entire family .of the
deceased, have the svmpathy of the
community in their sad bereavement.
Two Ancient Receipts.
Messrs. Editors: Frequent contrasts
are made in the newspapers between
the enjoyments of the people in 1886
and those of our ancestors of a century
ago, to the disparagement of the lathnr
thft followinc"- conv of a receipt i
which I now hold in my hand will j
show that there were times at which
our ancestors enjoyed a reasonable
amount what some people class among
the good things of life:
' Rec'd of David Millen. one hundred
and twenty-seven pounds, five
shillings for sundry liquors expended
at the funeral of Hugh Logan, deceased.
"Dec. 31st, 1777."
The following shows what was paid
for an article simply of necessity:
' Rec'd January 2nd, 1778, of Mr.
David Milling the sum of fifty pounds
in lull for a coffin for Mr. Hugh Logan.
"?50. Mungo Fixlaysox."
The idea suggests itself that Mr.
Logan mav have been a kinsman of
the late Gen. John A. Logan's father,
as they were both North of Ireland
men. g. ii. m.

Messrs. Editors: An entertainment
was given by the "Longtown Dramatic
Club" at Mr. Cohen's store last Thursday
evening, 23rd inst. A large au-1
dience witnessed the performance.
Music from Piano?"Military Gallop"
?bv Mrs. McCormick and Miss Prov

Wiles, Jones and Messrs, Jones.
"German Waltz" by Mrs. Wiles.
The curtain went up and opened to
the audience an act entitled "Hayden."
The naughty girls soliloquy, her exacting
guardian, her romantic George,
whom she was forbidden to see,
climbing up through windows to evade
the vigilant eyes of the "Snap Dragon,"
elicited loud applause.
Song, "Rain Drops," was charmingly
rendered by Miss Leon a Blake,
and "Gu<;ss Who!" by Miss IvaProvence.
Tne roir.ance of the words,-the
variation of the Music, and the beauty
of the singer made "Guess Who!"

Songs and music from piano by Mrs.

"Parting Whispers" is a
sad, sweety song and could not fail to

LETTER FROM BUCKHEAD.
Messrs. Editors: Our Legislature
I has been some time in session and
; striking at many things, and yet by
, many as well as by myself not at the
! most important issue that should be at
stake, i. e., providing for the condition
of the agricultural class of the
people. It is looking at what shall be
the taxation of the people, the appropriation
of said taxes, schools and
their support, but not a word about a
plan to aid the totally destitute who
oi-o tr\ i*5)icp anH nav those taxes.
From my own knowledge, and from
the statements of far more experienced
planters in this region of the best circumstances,
the prospects of the farmers
are truly appalling. I do not
mean simply the colored laborerswhite
as well as colored. Or is this
the only destitute region making it
with small consequence to our Legislature?
If not, snrely our Legislature
forgot their constituents' welfare.
What do we want with schools, canals,
Legislatures or anything el&e when
the people are starving, dying and
dead. I saw the year of '45 and the
condition of '46, and whereas I have
not seen '87 yet, still I have seen '86 and
the prospects of '87, for the field
| laborers about here are far worse than
they were in '46. Small grain crops
were pretty good in '45 and very good
in '46. y
The fault of destitution' here is not
ascribable to laborers more than the
earthquake catastrophe in Charleston
was to its citizens. The unusual
severe winter destroyed the small crop
of this year. The ex'raordiuary
freshets destroyed the corn crops nearly
entirely through all this region, and
what little late corn there was was
annihilated by dronght. The almost
incessant rain?, night and day, so retarded
the cotton work as to allow
time for only a very short crop. Many
liens are not paid, so of rents, and 110
grain in the country, and no money to
buy if it were.
Will our Legislature disregard this
condition of our people? Say not to
issue money is unconstitutional. The
patriots of '76 issued money; it it did
not prove good it answered" their pur
pose. The Confederates did tiie same.
The people will take the money. It
will be relief. It will save emigration
and starvation. What do the people
care for tbe Constitution when dead?
Relief from suffering is what is concerning
them now, and will for an
other year, with all the assistance tney i
can get. Consecutive hard years have
almost crushed out our best laborers?
the negroes. When these people have
left us our lauds will lie uncultivated.
I am now nearly seventy, and I have
seen the rage for white foreign labor
and its results. It will be mach
cheaper for South Carolina to retain
her colered population. They look
haggard row. They arc not only
ragged (many wretchedly so), but
starvation is staring them aud their
little ones in the face. They worked
well this year?nev.r better under the*
most discouraging circumstances. 1
do not mean to exclude our white
laborers, who are, too, iu the same
It is Christmas! Not a gun is fired,
not a cracker heard! All is gloom.
My friend Capt. T. D. Feaster tells me
he never saw such a Christmas. It
seems a solemn gloom. But for < apt.
Eeaster it does seem consternatiou

active exertions the country is fed.
He is au uncommonly useful man, and
were he lost to this community by
death or otherwise it would be fatal to
its interests. S. M. Simons.
Buckhead, S. C., December 24.
Died in this county on November 2nd,
1886, the Rev. Harrison Liston, colored,
in the one hundred and sixth year of his
age. He was a member of the Baptist
Church for seventy five years, and a minister
of the gospel sixty-five. His life was
an example to others for uprightness, and
he died in the faith. D. Golden.

"Death hath made no breach
In love and sympathy, hope and trust;
No outward sound our ears can reach,
But there's an inward, spiritual speech,
That greets us still, tho' mortal tonsmes
bids us do the work they laid down.
Take up the song where they broke off the
strain; . ?
So jonrneying till we reach the heavenly
Where are laid up our treasures and
And our last loved ones will be found

tribute of respect.
Whereas, the Supreme Architect of the
Universe has called from time to eternity
our brother Past Master James H. Rion,
and by the suddenness of the summons
and the usefulness of the life so calmly
closed, has reminded us that while it is
called to day we must Work, and that when
our hands shall find nothing to do we may
seek for Refreshment; therefore, he it
Eesolved, That in the death of our brother
Past Master James K. Rion, Winnsboro
Lodge, No. 11, A. F. M, has lost a woithy
and zealous member, who adorned the
principles of Masonry Jby the practice
thereof, who, as a citizen, was a "common
good," and while deserving all, and winning
many civic honors, never sought the
emoluments of office; who. as a soldier,
drew his sword when Duty called, and
sheathed it when Peace bade him win her
victories; and who, as amsn and a Mason,
"caused the widow's heart to sing for joy,
delivered the poor that cried, and the
fatherless, and him that had none to help !
Be it further resolved, That in all the
walks ot life he walked worthy of his high
Masonic calling, and that in the profession
of the law to which he devoted 1 is time a id
talents he reached that summit of excellence
and knowledge whence he saw and
fully realized that the seat of Law is the
bosom of God and her voice the harmony
of the Universe.
Be it further resolved, That we tender to
the family of our deceased brother our deep
sympathy in their sad bereavement and
commend them to His care, whose tender
mercies are over ali His works.
Be it further resolved, That this Lodge
be draped in mourning for thirty days and
a page in our minute book be inscribed to

oe published in the Fairfield News
