p- ' know thai the first college Y. M. C. A.
ever organized was at the university
tof Virg uia in 1858 or 1859, and Rev.
John Johnson, D'. D., who was at that
time a student at the university, was
the ?; < ? president Dr. Johnson is
now rector of St. Philips church in
Charleston. This ^information about
the Y. Vt. C. A. was given by Rev.
Mr.' Kershaw at a recent Y. M. C. A.
State convention at Spartanbarg.
?Thi members of the Winnsboro.
and Rid^eway Baptist ?'barches were
so mach pleased with Rev. Mr. Freeman,
01 Lowrysville, who preached
^ both here an^i in Ridgewav on las
Sunday, .'hat ihey have caiieU him to

not known yet whether Mr. Freeman

-^The effect of the recent severe
cold cau be seen . upon some of the
live oak trees growing abou' town,
y The .leaves have turned yellow ^nd
show plainly that they have been hurt
by the cold. There are not many of
these tries here bat those that are here
have never before been injured by the
cold. Tne fact that these large trees
fc- have beea injured is a proof that never
before fcuve we had such cold weather.

S" will be lent to the veterans by the
Secretary of War: 10,000 cots, 10,000

way and the house fell. No one was j
hurt. The wonder is tbat this thing |
does not happen oftener. Tbe foundation
of so many small houses about i
here are apparently so flimsy ihat it!
seems strange that they ali do not!
meet the same fate as the one men-!
tioned above.
?In acknowledging the money collected
in Winnsboro for the Bine
medal Mrs. Serevin says tbat Winnsboro
is one of the first towns that has
responded to the call for money for
this medal. A very nice little sum
was collected here and it win always j
be a source of gratification to those *
who contributed to the fund that they <
have helped to reward one of the
heroes of the State. Editor Gonzp.ies j
now suggests that the Patriotic As- j
socialion shall honor Major Jenkins as j
well as Lieut. Blue. The ladies wili j
no doubt act upon this suggestion.
?The illness of Rudyard Kipling, j
th3 celebrated English author and
poet, has caused deep anxiety aud
sorrow all over the world almost.
Thia oriffpfl ma-, has made a ffreat
name for himself and has won the j
love and admiration of people wher-1
ever his writings have reached- The j
bulletins from his physicians are read j
with the keenest interest, and in many j
churches prayers have been offered'
for his recovery. It is to bs hoped j
that such a man as this, for whom |
there seezos to be such a brilliarnt i
future, will be spared. Kipling's j
death would cause unusual grief.
?Th? bicycle riders are hoping that j
whi:e the work of improving the :
streets is going onilnt they will not:
be forgotten ana !hat tne authorities i
3 I
wi!i have a bicycle path made through i
jrtam street, lqis is su-ueunui; mn
tue owut-rs of wheels have long felt
the nead of and taev hope that if j
possible they will have a bicycle path, j
Toe prospect of having the Main ;
Street pat in good coadition is a most
delightful one and if the town council
succeeds in carrying out their plans
they will have the gratitude of every j
one. We ho^e that they will take the i
bicyclists into consideratiea and will
discuss the matter of a path through
Main Street.
?We think that it will be a good j
plan for Winnsboro to follow ths example
of several towns in the State
and chaDge tbe date of Memorial Day.
The 10th of^May is the day set apart
for Memorial Day, but this* year it
will coaae just when the Confederate
rpnnirm ia nf ifc hMtrhfc ?r?;l most of
the veterans and probably a great i
many who are not veterans will be in .
Charleston at that time- It seems; j
therefore, that the only thing to do j
wiil be to select a day either before or !
after the reunion for the memorial i
exercises. It wQuld' seem a pity to;
have the exercisee at a time when so
many are absent. This is a matter fcr
tbe Ladies Memorial Association to
attend to, and they, will no donbt arrange
things so that tbe two celebrations
will not clash. ?
?The wa-m weather of last week j
was brought -to a close by a severe j
storm on Saturday night. For several !
days during the past week the weather I
was very warm- and on Saturday the j
mercury was up io the eighties cau*- j
ing winter clothes to be discarded and j
summer clothes, to b2 brought oat. j
The storm on Sitardav nigh', how- I
ever, cansed a great fall in the tempe- j
ratare. This Lstorm was unusuaUy
severe. The rain fell in torrents and
was accompanied by high wind and
hail and very severe thunder and j
lightning. Although the storm was ;
such a severe one no damagr was done i
in town excepting to the telephones, ;
and nearly every phone in town was:
ournt oat. .A heavy fro3t whitened j
the ground on M?aday raorniDg, bat j
nothing was injured.
?President Woodward, of the South !
Crrolina College, has recently d?!iv-j
ered a lecture cn Timrod in several |
different towus in the State. This lec- i
ture is said io t>e thoroughly interest-1
ing and instinctive, and just uow whe.j |
the people of the wboie State are feel-.
ir-g a deeper interest in all that con- j
cerns tue life of the poet this lecture !
wnnlrl hn delightful. t'onld noi: those :
creotlemeu who were instrumental in I
geitiDg President "Woodward to de-;
liver one of his lectures here same time !
ago imke an effort to have him deliverj
his lectnre on Timrod in Winnsboro?!
We feel snre that every one who has j
once heard President Woodward I
would be very gla^ of an opportunity i
to hear him again, and we hope that j
that opportunity will soon be given us. I
It is very bard to stand idly by and 1
see onr dear ones suffer while aw aiting i
the arrival ot the doctor. An Albany j
(N. Y.) dairyman called at u drug |
store (here for a doctor to cocie and j
see hi3 child. then very sick tvitn
croap. Nat finding the doctor in, be
left word for him. to come at once on ?
his return. Ue also bought a bottle of;
t himberlain's Cough Remedy, which;
he hoped would give some reiiet until |
the doctor should arrive. la a few |
hours he returned, saying the doctor
need not come, as the ehild was much J
better. The druggist, Mr. Ofto Sbolz, I
says the tamily has since recommended j
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy to their;
neighbors and friends until he has a j
constant demand for it from ihaf part j
of the country. For sale by McMas-j

How to Know Our Wild Flowers
Beginning with the March number
the Ladies' Home Journal will publish
serially during the spring and summer
the month's pogeant of wild
flowers. In each month's issue will
be pictured, classified and described
the wild flowers then in blooom. The
ucv.riptions, with the aid of photographs,
will give every one an intimue
acquaintanceship with tge sum.
iner waifs of "wood and field, and a
pleasant, useful knowledge that >vi'l
make their identification very eay
whenever met with. The series will
bring to all a keener appreciation of
the beantiful flowers that grow and
blossom in Nature's garden.
The town council is doing splendid
on the streets. For several
days a force of hands has been
nf. E7>rk tinon Main street, and tbe 1
w-u k is being doue thoroughly. The ]
heavy and freqaeat raios of the winter '
almost ruined the strests, and where J
were once hard smooth roads are dow j
a ^accession of deep hole?. The town ,
authorities are doing their utmost to i
epalr :ne streets and to fix (hem so (
thaMhcy will remain in fine condition. J
Tf iliw <nnnpv is fnrfhr.nmincr fhft conn- <
cil intends fixing up all the principal
streets in town. By so doing they
will have the gratitude or the community.
A quantity of granite is being
used in filling up the streets.
While out driving with several (
friends on Monday, Mi>s Gussie Des- *
Fortes was shot vvith an air gun. As v
ihe was driving p^st a group of small ^
boys one of thein, evidently not realizing
what a dangerous thing he was 1
doing, aimed his air guu at the young
lady nnd *fbe ball struck her in the
e\e. Fortunately- the ball did not
strike the eyebail, .but. buried itself in 1
the eyelid. She was taken to Dr.
Buchanan who [removed the ball from
the eyelid. It is almost meracnlous
that the shot did not enter the eye and
the yonng lady very narrowly es- *
cr.pod losing the sight of one eye. 1

hare just experienced?a winter which
? was perhaps the coldest ever known in
, South Carolina. How all nature seems
* to rejoice over the coming of-spring
* when everything seems to spring forth
to a newness of life. The birds vie
with each other in their songs, which'
seem to be sweeter than ever before.
s I can hear a mocking bird singing now
oat in the flower garden. How sweet
. this bird of the Southland can sing;
1 how perfectly it can imitate the notes
' of all other birds. Down on thea
branch can be heard the son? of the
- red bird and others of the feuth.-red
7 tribe. I fancy they are r'eiuniiog

i The recent cold weather certainly
> proved fatal to a great many birds
perhaps hundreds of them froze tu j
J dea h and others died from hnnge'i. In
" walkiug over the fields during and 1
* after the recent snow we noticed a
' great m&nv birds that had been frozen, j
mostly sparrows, though there were a I
7 great many, others, notably doves, red I
* birds and mocking birds. We haven't
7 seen many blue birds since the cold
e winter of several years ago; they have
' almost become extinct. It is certainly
a pity too. Birds are great insect de*
strovers and thereby render the farraf
ers valuable aid, which they slionld

t The weather has been very unfavorr
able for farm work this year. No
i ploughing bas been done yet. It will
e soon be time to plant March corn,
r This is the third of March and not a
" furrow has been ran. The ground is
entirely too wet to plough now, and
all indications point to another rain.
Nevertheless we won't despair, bat
hope tor the best.
h Nothing has 1 re i done towards gardening
Q We tbink the fruit crop has
o been injured my by the recent cala,
e as none of the trees had put out. We
3 noticed that some of the plow trees
were in full bloom to-day. In the
e flower garden the jonquils, hvacintbs,
bridal wreath and golden rod are in
s bloom.
We certainly enjoyed reading the
oeaumui piece ui pueuy whi-lch uj
' Professor Durham to Maj. Woodward.
!* The sentiments therein expressed were
. well worthy of the one from whom
e they emanated, and were certainly
a well deserved by the one to whom the"?
were written. If there ever was a
man who was loyal lo his country ar.d
e fellow man that man is T. W. Woodward.
Fairfield certaiuly owes him a
lasting debt of gratitude for the active
part he bore in the redemption of the
8 county and Stale from Radical rule.
We with many others admire him, and
as our coantv hasn't had a Governor
for years would suggest that we run
him for that office in 1900.

he was made major because of the
gallantry and efficiency he ihere displayed.
I have also recommended
him for a brevet because of his gallantry.
He was beside me when we
charged from Kettle hill to the second
line of entrenchments and he afterwards
went on practically by himself
until he ran into the Spanish lines and <
had to be recalled. His hat was ehot

Iaformatlen and Advice.
Mr.. Editor: Feeling that the indij:rimiaate
killing of birds 80 freely in- 1
in)ged in through this section of the '
jountry is dne either to thoughtless
aess or ignorance, the following is
respectfully submitted. Yon can use j
part, or all, or none, as yon decide ]
jest. ' i
In Pennsylvania a few years ago the !
Legislature placed a bounty on the i
beads of owls and hawks. These ]
popularly are. recognized as our enemies.
More than $50,000 was paid .
out in these bounties. The next year 1
the-crops of grain were almost com* "
pletely destroyed by field mice and (
5th?r rodents and the loss to the farm- ^
srs amounting io about $4,500,000, <
showed conclusively that owls-and*
aawks were friends, not enemies. '
