John, D. 11. and Christopher Winter
founded the town of Winterville in 1866.
and from this family the place took its
name. John Winter was the most thriftv
and most remarkable man who has left
his impress on the town. He was a sailor
and wanderer for many years of bis life,
and participated in the Crimean war. Ho
died one year ago, and the readers of tho
town paper are familiar with the facts of
his lile. He built up a thriving business
and left good property in Winterville.
His estate was valued at $70,000 w hen ho
Winterville has 500 people, six stores,
three shops, two boarding houses, two
saw mills one grist mill and two cot on
gins. There were ginned last year 2,300 !
bales ol cotton; 3,000 bales were bought
in the town; 1,100 tons of guano were
sub! there last year 10r 5.33,000. Tne value i
of business outside of this is $140,000.
I here were 4,000 bales of cotton shipped
last year. There are two white and two
colored churches and four guano houses.
Winterville is 72 feet higher than Athens
and is a line health resort as well as bus!- i

street, where lie remained, it is supposed,
until early the next morning. Since that,
time n dbing has been seen of him, and
all efforts to obtain a trace aa to his

Mr. Bonannan was short In bis accounts
with the Singer company, and that he
was otherwise financially embarrassed,
though to what extent is not known.
Winterville is stud to be the best bal

Inroads of Moths anil the Wear and
Tear of Sweeping Aid eg in Working
ttie Change—Home i’oiutor* About tho
Use ot the itrootn.
Neiv York, Feb.s. To begin at tlie be
ginning, it should always be remembered
in furnishing a room tuat sweeping will
be a Irequent, if not a daily, necessity.
This necessity, together with the inva
sion ol the buffalo moth, is gradually
bringing in the lashion of thick rugs or
caipets, covering only the oentres of
polished floors. There are many reasons
why this style of floor covering should be
adopted, but we are at present concerned
only with the most obvious one. There is
no more prolifio source of dirt, no more
unwholesome, uncleanable article In the
whole house than a thick carpet tightly
nailed to the floor and reaching to the
very mopboard. l.i most families a carpet
does duty just as long as it can be made
decent by carelul darning and turning
about. It is probably sate to say that the
average life ofa carpet is six years, while
many of them do good service for twice
'hat length of time What an accumu
lation of filth; wnat a retmsitory of vile
“dors; what a breeder ot disease must it
become with any but the very best of
care! it this were the only reason why
it should be discarded, one would think it
must quickly go. But conservatism is as
strong in house furnishing as in politics
or religion, and the carpet is destined to
hold sway for a long time to come. If we
must have carpets, then, let us choose
them wisely and care tor them intelli
gently. •
I’fie advice so oflpn given to huv only
the best tilings because they are cheapest
in the end is ap' to bo ve: v poor advice in
regard to carpets. By all means fuiv the
beat and handsomest if you can afford to
replace them often enough so that you
may always have a comparatively clean
carpet. II expense is a verv important
consideration.choose a rood, firm ingrain
or other serviceable carpet ot moderate
cost. It will wear as long as it ought to
be used, and then it can be replaced by a
clean one.
Sweeping is a very laborious task, and
when properly performed should not need
to be repeated until some days have
elapsed. Hence it is important to choose
a carpet which will not show every shred
or bit of dust. Avoid dark colors and
plain blocks or spaces of any one color.
Boft, subdued tints and mix-'d patterns
give most satisfaction. John Burroughs,
speaking ot toe [line forest, says: “Let
the designers come here and get the true
pattern for a carpet—a soft, yellowish
brown, with only a red leaf or a hit of
gray moss or a dusky lichen scattered
here and there—a background mat does
not weary or bewilder the eye or insult
the grout d-loving foot.” -lust such a
carpet as that would delight the heart
of the housewife, it, in the endless round
of household duties, sweeping dav must
he postponed, sucu a carpet would tell no
As in a great many other tasks, the
getting ready is the worst part of sweep
ing. The swe-per should incase herseit
from head to foot in calico, which is none
ibe Worse for a good dusting,since a vigor
ous shake will remove a I traces of it.
Tne first thing to do is to take all orna
ments and articles of bric-a-lirae out of
the room after eafeltiliy dusting them
with a soft cloth.then brush and fold every
table spread, mantel scarf and removable
it of drapery which the room contains,
shake the curtains and protect them as
best you may from the dust. Dust and
remove such articles of furniture as are
not too heavv, so that you may have a
Clearfield. Cover all remaining articles
with cloths and then you are ready to
begin. It is safe to call in Bridget at this
stag" of affairs if you choose, but do not
leave her to herown devices,™- your care
ful preparations will be followed up bv
only inditf-rem sweeping. Provided with
a good flexible broom, she sh ut and h-gin at
the voiy edge of the room-, go caremlly all
around it. moving the broom with vigor
ous sweeps parallel with the walls and
close to thorn. This will and slodge the
dust that lias settled between the carpet
and mopboard, and prove something of a
discouragement to • the carp* t mmh as
well; though we cannot hope to evict
him, when once comfortably settled, by
any such gentle means; a brush, broom
or wing may be needed to supplement the
broom in the corners. When the sweeper
has thus made the circuit ot the room,
she may go ail around it again, this time
sweeping toward the centre, and so she
nmv proced, in ever lessening circ'es,
untd the dust and dirt are gathered m a
heap in the middleof the floor. Atierihe
pile is carefully removed and the place
which it occupied brushed until it looks
as fresh as ihe rest of the carpet, the
windows mav be opened and the operator
sii down to rest.
This, in some houses, would be consid
ered a carefully swept floor, but th- nus
iress who has taken the pains lo get her
room ready as it should be got ready
hesitates to return the furniture until tee
dust Is removed from ihe carpet.
Weil she knows that in that ease she may
put her sweeping days twice or three
times as far apart as if the work were
carelessly done. Then, when the dust is

DAWSON, GA., DKC. 7. 1886.
For fully nine years 1 had catarrh. For five years I had it in the very worst form, how
obnoxious that is I noej not recount. I \va* under treatment of one of the most celebrated
Fyc, Ear and Tnroat J*hy nans in the United States, but he was unable to do me any goo*!.
In despair I resorted to numerous patent medicines that I saw advertised, but with no avail.
Finally, about-t \ mouths aeo, I began to take S* S. in sheer desperation, hut with little
hope and no faith In it. But to-day I am comparatively well; indeed, I have been so bene
tiled by the S. 8. S. that, although Skeptical of its merits, I am compelled bv the benefit 1 hav*
derived from it, to testify to Us unquestioned curative powers in r.atvrh cases. The best
compliment I can pay it l that I have recently recommended it to a number of mv warmed
personal friends. , MltS. E. C. KENDRIC K.
