The afternoon session of the board
,Ta? quite interesting. After passing
erbally on the requests for the return
f small seizures of liquor from
:harleston, and ordering tbat they be
eturned or the price paid for them,
nd requesting tbe Governor to call to
tie attention of Chief W. W. Sellers
.lathe was not doing liis duty in not
eeping a proper account of tbe seiz*
res in his jurisdiction, the board took
p the consideration of some shortages
barged against Dispeuser Stevenson,
t VVionsbero, and went into the inestigation
of a robbery committed in
ha dispensary, and some charges made
gainst the dispenser. When he was
hecked up recently there was a sbortge
in his accounts found amounting
) S3S0.45. Mr. Stevenson said that
lie shortage had developed while he
?as sick, be having been in bed and
ift the dispensary in the charge of his
lerk. WLen the shortage was found

: seems afterwards that it was discovred
that $100.45 was due the county
3d town. The dispenser did not deny
.l:3 shortage, but he made the point
bat the shortage might have been
lused by the disappearance of stock
ud that "he did not think that be should
e charged up more than the profit
;ou!d have been on liiat amount 01
quor. Mr. Williams contended, howver,
that the amount was actually the
rofit due the county, and that it did
ot represent stock. The dispenser
eclined to make any chargss against
nybody in connection with this shortge,
but assumed the responsibility,
nd when the board decided lie must
iay it he deposited a check for the
mount. But the dispenser had more
rouble in the shape of a robbery
ommiited about two week3 8go, and
at of which some very serious
barges were made against him. Contable
Holloway, of Columbia, at tbe
equest of Mr. Stevenson, was sent to
Vinnsboro to investigate the matter,
ud when he came back be made the
lost damaging report against Stevenan.
He expressed grave doubts as lo
rhetber a robbery had been comurit;d,
and said all the hne and cry of one
ras made to hide a possible shortage,
le further charged that the dispenser
penly violated tbe law and that anyody
could get liquor after hours by
aying five cents bonus for tin stuff,
fc was also asserted that the dispenser
peitty?MkMmiOl lUC uuu-rva ~

rher in tbe State. This 'vas so serioas
iat the detective was again sent to
finnsboro, and this time he reported
lat while everybody told him these
lings nobody bat two negroes would
lake an affidavit to sustain the charges,
ecause they were afraid of Steven>n,

these things, said at first that he
new nothing about the robbery ex2pt
that his back door had been
rokeu into one Saturdav night and
iat S19S.98 worth of stuff had disapeared.

legally. This was signed also

pposite effect. Stevenson went oa to

ling. Th -y asserted that they never :
new him to violate the law. A letter

Mr. John S. Reynold', who accompanied
the sheriff as a friend and attorney,
said that was eminently proper
and proceeded to ask some question?
within the limits laid out by the chairman.
In reply to a question the sheriff declared
it "absolutely false that he had

upon whether any robbery had been

he was, and said be had never seen the

affidavit they ever made.
He charged before the board that
Stevenson had been short in his accounts
several times and had come to
him to borrow money to make the
amount good. He declared that he
and Stevenson bad been &ood friends
and their families had associated with

ween Stevenson was $300 short in his

positive and emphatic terms that be

Mr. Editor: I thought it would be
interesting to my up country farmer
fiiend-t to kuow how their Barnwell
and Bamberg Countys' brotber-larmers
are progressing with their work.
There have been recently two very
remarkable hail storms in this section.
Toe first o;:e struck the country rstind
about Klko and Williston where it devastated
who!c fields in some places.
The hail is reported to have been the
size of fowl e^gc, and to have staid on
11 ...1 ?maha fViOM n rJo r TliA
UK' ?IU11IIU 1U1 LLi'w/lU Lliau a. v*a.j . hjv
peopls have bad to plow np and plant
over, even though it was so late in
the pea-on. In some places where it
was hcavi' r nothing was left standiog
io ihi fields when the storm was over.
A ore Mi' dp.al of rla,na<?e was done bv it
in various other ways than to Nthe
farms. Since then another storm of
less severity .struck the country about
Monie and Whaley and did much
damage to ihe crops. The writer witnessed
this one, and it was a sight to
behold, ft poured down in a blinding
sheet of hail the size of partridge eggs,
tome of it even larger, for at least
twenty minutes, and lay on the ground
half an hour where the water did not
flow over it. It was accompanied by
a heavy rain, thunder and wind. The
bail stones were quil(i ZS romitt sib
marbles and would rattle on the house
tops like a shower of marbles. The
air was filled with leaves a9 the hail
stone-* beat them olFthe trees. The
cotton and water-mellons were badly
beaten n.? m-5! the blades otihecorn
were shretiwcU. u'nere these storms
did not strike, the crops are remarkably
fine. Around Denmark the hail missed
and the crops area thing of beauty.
The nnoer county farmers would
think they had no crop if they were
to se?. these iu the lower counties.
The corn will average all over this
country, even where the last hail
storm visited, six feet high. In some
fields it is ta^seling, and in others if I
were to attempt to describe how fine
it i.3 you would all think that 1 was
drawing on my imagination. Rut I
saw a field of corn a few day* ago

tall man could not touch the top of it
on his tip-t >es, aud that com was not
ta^seling \et either. If it keeps on
it wiil equal "Jack'd beau pole."
There is les? cotton planted here
than ever before. It is looking fresh
and green and is knee high 011 an
average, full of liuibs and forms. The
farmers here have planted a quantity
of email grain and corn, sugar cane
and m?llous and rice. Tney are fixing
to live next \car. Th*ir pastures are
fall o4'cattle, sheep and pigs.
Ail additional number of threshing
machines were needed this seas >n and
several flour mills and rice cle?ners
are making preparations for the crop
of wheat that is on hind and the rice
which bids fair to a hetvy > ield 1 iter

X B.TT- ke iast night wit*i severe p?uns

could hardly work. I went to Miller

worked like magic and oue dose fixed
me all right. It certainly is the finest
thing I ever used for stomach trouble.

Judge Tarbell tell the folio wing joke
on himself: A short time after bis
retirement from the beDch he happened
to meet an old friend whom he
had not seen for some time. The
judge, dU smiles and neatiness, effervesced
over his friend in such a way
as to provoke the inquiry:
l'Whet office are you a candidate for
now, judge?"
The judge made a deprecatory movement
with an ontward turned palm
and said:
"For none at all. my dear brother;
I'm simply a candidate for heaven."
His friend regarded bim sorrowfallv
lor an instam, and ihen, with more
wit than politeness, and with more
profanity than either, exclaimed:
