coudacted impressively by ihe Rev.
James Moffatt, of Chester. Only the
immediate friends of the contracting
parties were present. The happy pair
boarded the south-bound evening tr ail
on the day of the marriage at Chester
and came to Winnsboro and spent a
few days wilh the groom's parents.
On Wednesday night the residence
of Mr. Jas. A. Brice witnessed one of
the most pleasant receptions given
within our memory. About 8 o'clock
the guests began to assemble, and ti e
handsome rooms were filled with the
laughter and the gayety of the beauty
and the chivalry of our town. The
young groom andliis fair and younger
bride were occupied a greater portion of
the evening in receiving the unfeigned
congratulations of their many friends.
The parlor and dining room were
artistically and tastefully decorated
with flowers, everything even the
phenomenally beautiful weather
seemed to accord with the happy emotions
inspired by such au occasion.
The clinu.x of mirth and jollity was
reached when, in pairs, following the
two loving "hearts that beat as one,"
the guests made entry into the dining
[ room, where lay spread a table
ttiat would have pleased the exacting
palate of aneastern monarch, and that
was certainly appreciated by the guests
assembled, who did full justice to the
feast prepared. One could not but
tliink of comparing the hostess, to
whom, iu greatest measure, is due the
success of the reception, to Milton's
Eve on the visit of the Angel, "on
hospitable thoughts intent" to please
I1C1 Y1311V1J.
Music succeeded the feast and as
the guest departed, there was 110 one
in whose heart was ;not uppermost a sincere
wish for the continued future happij
ness of this newly wedded young pair.
Some time since Tun News and
Herald chronicled the arrival of two
mysterious looking strangers in the j
Blackstock neighborhood who tramped i
about through the woods and fields
digging little holes in the ground here
and there for a day or too, and who
departed as suddenly as they had
arrived. The cariosity of the neighbors
was busy for some time after
guessing ihe purpose of the silent men j
but no clue could be give^i which was j
satisfactory, and the sensation had !
died out until when, as unexpectedly
as before, the same trio appeared agaiu
in the Yonguesville neighborhood a
day or two since. They inquired the
whereabouts of a certain negro grave
yard describing the locality and laud j
marks so minutely that if. was easily j
pointed out to them. In the same |
mysterious way as cu their first visit j
they provided themselves with digging j
tools and with no,on^..Tj.1
themselves; lwo boles in the
grave yard about the size of an ordi-!
nary grave. In the bottom of each j

the size of a water bucket -which have
the appearance cf having lud some
pactage removed. The strangers
were very importunate, before the
excavations were made, as to what bad
transpired in the viciuity during the
visit of Sherman's bummers and were
truthfully informed that nothing had
been left by them, not even an. old
frizzle rooster. Before the holes wera
discovered by the good people of
Yonguesville, the party had as quietly
aud silently disappeared as they bad
come, and whether there were hidden
treasures exhained will probably for
ever remain a question of speculation |
with the curious.

powers of a Cupid or some other

Its Second Annual Awarding of Prizes?
A Most Pleasant Day?A Magnificent
Last Friday the residence of Mr. J.
M. Smith, in the East Waterce scctien
of the county, was the scene of a most
interesting and. instructive meeting.
The day was the one set apart for
holding the sccond annual meeting ot
the Wateree Prize Club. This
Club, though organized only two years
ago and with a limited number of
members, is rapidly brooming one of
the active powers in the county for
revolutionizing the methods of farming
and for elevating the social side of
our people. The practical results
reached by its members in their ex
periments, their earnest efforts to
make it a pleasure to be "within the
fold," the unselfishness shown in their
strenuous efforts to induce other sections
of the county to organize such'1"
clubs, are characteristics that entitle 'it
to the commendation and encouragement
of al! broad-minded n^ople. It
was'our pleasure to have beeiKhonored
with an invitation to attend their*
meeting last Friday, and we make no
formal statement when we say it was
one of the most pleasant, days within
our memory.
The Club was called to order at 12
o'clock m. by the President, Mr.
A. Neil. Mr. Hugh Wylic, the Secretary,
then read the reports of each
member. These reports showed an
accurate account of the manner of
working, the expenses and the profits;
and from the reports the stereotyped
statement "that farming won't pay"
was most successfully contradicted.
C'apt. I. N. Withers made an eloquent
speech in deliveiing the prizes,
pathetic at times with an easy slide
into witticism as everybody knows the
Contain fan flo Rf? well.
The prize offered for the largest
y??Jd of cotton on one acre was won
by F. A. Neil. His mode of preparing,
fertilizing and cultivating was as

1077 pounds of lint; sold for $105.07.
The amount of seed from this acre
was 60 bushels worth S12 this added

The most successful contestant for the
three acre prize was T. W. Itawls.

first of March, laid off rows from 3? to
4 feet wide, used compost, made of
stable manure, cotton seed and acid;

and laid by on the 17th with one farrow.
The cost of fertilizing, cultivating
and picking was $125.90, sale

cost deducted leaves a profit of$180.01
on five acres.
Largest yield of corn on two acres

The most sweet potatoes grown on
one-half an acre, was raised by T. "W.
Rawls. The amount of manure used,
was 40 bushels of cotton seed, iuu
ppunds of acid and two bushels of
aches, the cost was $7.50 vjeld 84
The yield on the 38 acres that was
reported was 47? bales. The best ten
acres made a little over 18 bales.
After the Captain had congratulated
the winners and had feelingly said to
one of the old bachelors who won
most of the prizes, "yet one thing thou
lackest," etc., Mr J. G. McCants was
called on and made a short, but captativing
address, happily interspersed
with jokes and beautiful sentiments.
Mr. G. H. McMaster made a lew
pointed remarks on farming, and was
listened to with interest.
Mr. J. M. Stewart suggested these
1. To test the profitable limit of
manure to apply to ordinary land.
2. To decide the" question, does it
pay to plant corn? ?
3. To decide the best method of pre- j
serving hill sides.
Mr. W. D. Douglass,- after a few
prefactory remarks, announced that
The News and Hekald would give a
perpetual mc-dal to be awarded as the
Club thought proper.
About this time the simple announcement
of dinner met ;?ith a most willing
response in the hearts of all, and
when all had entered the dining room
the magnificent spread,' whicti lay before
them, provoked a play of most
pleasant expressions on their countenances.
It is not worth while to
dwell at length on this feature of the
day. Tt is sufficient to say that the
dinner vis a most excellent one, snd
if thut a*c.r<er is any index of the prosperity
of that -immunity, we would
sav it is indeed prosperous.
^ "We would do a great injustice to the
occasion, were we to fail to mention
the fact that the ladies were thore.
Yes, they were there, and added, as
they always do, no little enjoyment to
the day; in truth the meeiing wonld
have fallen far short of success, had
they been absent.

Columbia, S. C., Dec. 1G.?A most
notable debate occurred in the Douse
to-day. Mr. Ilaskell, it must be remembered,
was absent in New Orloaus
while the discussion appertaining to
the Clemson College, appropiiation
was going on. Upon his return it is
supposed he was informed of the
second reading of the bill. To-day,
upon its being called up for its final
disposition, he arose and stated, apparently
quite heatedly, his objections to
the measure, and amongst other things
claimed that the manager of the bill i
in the House had violated the courtesy i
and propriety in bringing up the bill
in the absence of the committee. In
his argument reference was made to
Mr. Benet not beinsr native born, that i
he (Mr. Belief) was not here during
the war nor in that struggle, and comments
of the like kind delivered in his
usual' forcible style and aggressive
Mr. Benet, in his reply, hurled such
an avalanche of eloquence and sarcasm
in refutation of this attack as il has
fcUIUULll UUU1I JIJV IV iiCctl lli
any assembly. In haughty yet courteous-terms
he replied to what he called
the unfair, discourteous and unkind
fling at the accident of his birth: True
he was born in Scotland, but he had
lived in Abbeville County and been
honored by it for over twenty-one
years, so that had lie been born anew
he would now have been able to vote.
He accepted the name of Moses given
him by the gentleman fjom Richland.
It should be remembered, however,
thnt while Moses was slow of speech
Aaron was ever ready with nimble
tongue; he, therefore, designated the
gentleman as Aaron. All that he held
dear lived in the County of Abbeville,
and had he been here at the time
another spldier would have been added
to the Confederate cause.
His words were well chosen, sharply
accented and clean cut. Altogether
such an eloquent, robust, energetic yet
concise epcech, so well delivered, is
seldom heard. The pathos was deep
and feeling, and he was listened to ,
with wrapt attention. It was the
ablest effort of his life. The opinion
is freely expressed that for once Mr.
Haskell had been orercome 011 his own
field with his own weapons, and in a
manner highly courteous yet deeply
impressive to the gentleman from
Richland. occasional.
Columbia, Dec. 19.?The House has
been taken up for two days iu consid- j
ering the appropriation for the Clem- ]
son College. Amendment after amend- '
ment has been argued and debated, but
at la$t it vvas passed with some <
?^bojno-in substance tile '
same as proposed. Over n. Senf^^
chamber a most excited and spirited p
debate is going on. 'The Charleston
delegation there is divided; one
speaks on one 9ide, the other upon the
other side. Senator Pope has just
taken his seat after making a first-rate
argument from his standpoint, but
Senator Kennedy is answering him in
a slow, sledg-hammer style. It is be

The Senate has just signified its
antagonism to the seed cotton Act in
which the County of Fairfield was put
by amendment, and asks for a conference.
A motion is made in the House
to insist upon the passage of the Act,
and a committee of Messrs. Buchanan,

the report and the bill was placed upon

The debate upon the bill providing
for separate coaches for white and
black was sharp and lively. Messrs.

it, while Messrs. Mower, Jno.

the action of the majority in this instance
will not be considered as representing
the white people of the Slate.

at present are "many, but I still try to
make childhood and girlhood life

once a child.
Crops are short, in some places very
