On Tuesday night between eleven
ud twelve o'clock, the gin-hoase of
Mr. Amos E. Davit, of Monticello,
was destroyed by fire. At dark on
Tuesday afternoon Mr. Davis went to
the gin-honse and looked around to
see if everything was as it should be,
and went away satisfied th&t things
were all right, and at ten that night
Mr. Davis' sons passed the gin-house,
as they were returning from a bunt,
and saw nothing wrong. In the gin*
! hoase were six bales of seed cotton belonging
to Mr. Davis and one bale be*
longing to a" negro, all of which were
lost. Mr. Davis also lost bis gin,
press and saw mill.
Mr. Davis believes that the fire was
the work of an incendiary, from the
nour at wmcn u uccarreu, *uu ua mere

about $2,000. This is a veiy heavy

Mr. Jededlah Bobbins' Singin' Sknle
is coming and will hare their speeches
and singing in the Thespian Hall on
the night of Friday the 19th inst. In
every place that the Singin' Sknle has
been given it has drawn large crowds
who were amneed and delighted.
Meiers. Bertram and Willard with the
assistance of local talent will give the
Singin' Sknle, and Miss Charlotte
Allston is now bu3j getting the required
number of singers to t&ke part.
The entertainment is very fucny and
is sure to prove a great success here.
The following taken from the Columbia
Regi?ter of July SOth will show
what a success it was in Columbia:
The "congregation" which attended
Hyatt's Park last night witnessed a
very clever, clean and laughable entertainment
in Jedediab Bobbins' Singin'
Skule?ye congregation numbered a
great many hundred people; so many
in fact that the trolley cars "were tested
to their utmost capacity and then
failed to accommodate .all who desired
to witness it. The entertainment
which was given for the benefit of
Camp Hampton, C.V., was a complete
success in every way. The antics of
the "skollers" kept the audience in
roars of laughter, while the mtuic was
especially good. A return date has
been a. ranged with Messrs. Bertram
and Willard in September, which is
the first open date they have.

A Convict Is Cruelly Flogged.
, Oo Wednesday, a reporter for The
Ne?vs and Herald waa requested to
go to tbe jaiJ, and see Carter, the tramp,
who was put on the chain gang a few
weeks ago. Carter was found lying
on a pallet, and a more pitiable eight
the reporter had -*ot seen in a long
time. Upon an examination, this poor
unfortunate was found to have been
the victim of brutal and barbarous
treatment, and that too in a civilized
country, in the very custody of the officers
of the law. Oaly bis right side
was seen, and it was thick with large,
ugly sores. The reporter was told that
hie Ipf^ oir?p wnB pvati wnrRfl. Onr in
formation is that Carter was pat on the
chain gang for some pett> offense, and
that he had fever at the time. lie refused
to work, and the wounds on him
are the result of the whippings he got.
Whatever may be said of the necessity
of controlling prisoners and rendering
them obedient to their custodians,
there can be found no excuse for the
condition of this miserable creature.
He is now a very sick man. It is with
reluctance that we ever criticise the
officers of Fairfield County, who are
always efficient, but in this instance
the press cannot be silent. A convict
is a human being, and such inhuman
torture a3 was administered to Carter
ought not to be allowed to pass without
placing the responsibility, and some
one should answer for tbo conse
quences. Carter is now at the jail, and
the grand jury can examine him. for
Chief of Police Gilbert has received
a letter Irom Mrs. Carter, of Richmond,
Va., the mother of the unfortunate
youth now lying in such a pitiable
condition in the jail. Mrs. Carter
heard of the arrest of her son and
wrote to Chief Gilbert begging him to
be as lenient as Dossible to her wav
ward son, but she of coarse has no
idea of his real condition. Mr. Gilbert
answered her letter, and told her that
her son is here sick in jail, but told
her that the best of care is being taken
of him, and that he is receiving medical
attention and a nurse has been
provided him. The poor mother
seems almost heart-brokeu over her
son's disgrace.
ladies of the Presbyterian
Church served cake and lemonade at
the upper Longtown school hoose last
night. They realized $10.50, which
will go to help defray the expenses of
reDiiintinsr the church. We can't say
that none of the old bachelors have a
meal ahead, for one of them took advantage
of this golden opportunity
and purchased a whole cake. He
dida't care to specify with any one
afterwards, cut left immediately. He
took the blackjack road.
While some are complaining of the
light crops others are blessed with
good ODes. Mr. W. D. Harrison, lrom
the Waterce, cay? he made 500 bushels
of corn to two plows and cotton and
other crop9 in proportion.

The cotton picking 8?a3on is aboat
orer in this section. The crop is very
short and the price is so cheap that it
would seem to give most every farmer
occasion to complain; but the farmers
are taking it easy, staying at home and
attending to their business.
A few of our farmers have begun to
sow their small grain. From the present
outlook there will be more sown
this year than has been in a number

The Road Law as Bad as it la Could be
Made More Effective?The Dispensary
Assailed and High License
Mr. Editor'. I notice that ia our
county there are being organized what
are termed road vigilant committees,
or something of the kind. Let me
suggest that their first doty is to call
on onr conntv snDervisor and see if he
has received the commutation lax, or
the road duty doe the county. If not,
find out the reason. In every section
where the road law has been complied
with, by patting in the fall four days'
work, the roads ar? splendid. Some
few overseers deserve s great deal of
credit for the skill and push exhibited
by their sections of the roads; but in
uiauy places, iiic luaus aiv; aiuivot ^uipassable.
Not a day, no, not an hoar
of road duty has been pnt on these
roads, and in a few places thi3 was the
case last year. I Know that we have
substituted a very poor road law for a
most excellent one, yet this povr law,
the food of politician?, has not been
half enforced. The people are certainly
not responsible for the neglect
of our couuty supervisor; and his
right and left hand bowers are each
paid, and under contract with Fairfield
County to have the road law properly
enforced. The Ja-t Legislature took
away the little pay allowed to overseers,
and why should they not also
have taken away pay from all, and
treated them like the negro preacher
was treated. When the preacher was
asked how much his congregation paid
him, he said sometimes two dollar?
and sometimes not so innch. His
questioner answered: "That is d?11
poor pay." To which the preacner
replied: "Yes, bos?, it is d?n poor
Another thing. It looks like the
floodgates of hell are open, and cur !
county is going io be delnged in whiskey?as
the result of that miserable
dispensary law. the snbstilute for a
good, old time whiskey law. When
you find that you are off the track,
you h ui better go back. There is no
use of trying to enforce a law repugnant
to the Constitution ot the United
States. You might as well abandon
the idea at once. The better plan
would be to grant high licenses to
bonded sellers, half the revenue to go
to the public roads. Care must be
taken that the bonds are bona fide,
bomb-proof, and then yoar boys will
6top buying from negroes at the woedpile
at" night and on Sundays. The
dispensary law, as it is enforced, is
educating tha boys to drink, inducing
tbe father when he wants a drink to

poverishing the poor negroes, bringing
to their doors crime, rain and want.
We know that a negro wonld rob a
setting hen to get a drink, and commit
the blackest crimes while under
ihe influence of whi6key. Our officers
seem to like the dispensary tine. Some
of them see whiskey sold and know
that it is sold in various places, Sunday
not excepted.
