THE STATE FAIR.
Last week we had the pleasure
of nttending the State Fair in Columbia,
and then we were so full of
it, that had we attempted n description,
wc should have written
voluminously, if not interestingly.
But now looking at it through the*

it has lost eometliiug of its huge
proportions, ar.d present interest,
and hence we shall spare our renders
the infliction of a long essa}*,
descriptive and reflective.
As was said of the Abbeville
Fair, so every body says of the Columbia
Fair, "it was a great success"?not
equaling the ante.-hrUunr
demonstrations in this way, hut far
exceeding public expectation in
the variety and brilliancy of the
exkibitiou, and the large attendance
of spectators. Tfro city was fiilled
to overflowing, the hotels and private
houses crowded to their utmost
capacity, and thousands met togeth
cr daily at the Fair Grounds.
The Fair was licld at the old location
in the outskirts of the city.
Of the old buildings, only ihe Secretary's
officeremains--the rest have
fallen a prey to Sherman's incendiaries.
Instead of them, the cit}' of;
Columbia, ha^ erected a very commodious
building and made a donation
of building and grounds te
the Society." Entering the gate,
we first encounter the ampin-theatre
for the exhibition of stock, dis

as yet is only partially j^o.vidcd
with scats. Beyond is the Fair
Building, a ppacious two-story
wooden structure with commodious
wings.
Entering tho right hand door,)
we are launched at once into the,
Agricultural Department?mam- j

kius, the best of grain and the fin
est vegetables. Ilere Abbevillo is!
well represented, and Col. D. W.1
Aiken bears oft' the premium for:

ehango which has come over tho social
condition of tho South as a consequence
of tho war .of sccc&fiion, is
in nothing ' more plainly -manifested j
than in the greater attention now

are always ft great sourco of wealth '
to nations when assiduously followed,
and hhve boen one of the great eauscs
o? the matfcriAl success Of the Xorthcvn

lion, we would call attention to the 1
advertisement of Mr. T. McCrady, of
Charleston, S. G\, who has chargo of
extcDsivo oyster beds planted and
owned exclusively by capitalists of :
that city. Every such enterprise dc- i
sorves the support of the Southern

plongh it down well, if it stands thick I
and high, each morning a roller should 1

ploughed in a day, and weight should <
be fastened to tho point of tho plough

"COMETH UP AS A FLOWER."
The angels have another sister in\
Lhcir midst; SALLIE MA KG A RET J P
*11
youngest daughter of Dr. W. C. Nor-1 .
wood, of Cokesbury, S. C., died October
20, 18G9. u
During her severe illness she exhibited
many lovely trails of character,
together with tho more spiritual ~
graces of the childlike Christian'. fi
Her protracted sufferings extorted I
moans, but no murmur. Xo .word escaped
her lips expressing distrust of'l
(iod, or opposition to His will. Sliej
suffered meekly, believing that the I J
Divine Father is ' too wise to err, loo
good to be unkind " " Pray," she
said repeatedly to her bister, "pray to ~\
Uod to let mo life Cor thoso 1 love,
r
and to. glorify him by a Christian life, ^
if it in Ms ic\lt; if not, to make uic re- ^
signed and happy in Ilis love." I
Thero was much - around her to
make life hero very sweet. Having
completed her education in 1'alliniorc, v
she hurried home last June to bo pros-,
ent at the death bed of her father.
That father lives, and on the day of
hor burial, kissed her cold brow, bidding
adieu to his darling, child with
the words : " dutiful and beloved
daughter.'' An elder .sister was to her
both mother and sister. Oh how constantly,
teuderlv, ?ho nursed Ihc suffering
one. And thero was one who 3
loved her with all the strength of a u
true manly heart, and who had won
her love. After a loneencasement of
more than a year, they felt that their
nuptials would unite "two souls withont
a single thought two hearts that
beat as one." The 13th of October,
was the day appointed for the mar- -
riage of AIis:s Norwood to f)r. James J
Fuming. That day found her extremely
ill of typhoid fever. (
Death, the messenger of our Lord, (
touched the frail human flower, bo
loving and beloved, and she ceased to
suffer and began to live. "When d3'ing
she strove to comfort her father, saying
how much hotter it was to have
children with the angels in Heaven,;!
than dwelling on earth.
Trusting in Je?us she was willing to ;
die. " -Made pcrfeet through suffer- i#|
ing," she is as she believes she would (j
bo, "with tho angelB now "?no shad- it
ow dusks the radionee of that brow, a
which, having passed tho pearly gates,
is with tho angels now. Her form ?
glows 'ncath the jasper light, and soft $
her seraph feet arc 1 reading, with ec- y
static bliss, the gleaming golden I!j
street?with the angels now.
Her " moi lal partas a briile, sleeps ui
with the orange blossoms in her hair; Is
her bridal roses; the garlands which
afiection twined lbr the grave. At
that grave, lovo weeps, and hope
pointing to Heaven, waits for " the
voice of the arch-angel and the trump
of God." "In tho midst of life we
are in death," and ?/> the mid.it r>f death, I
we ure in death. May God pity the
strickens ones and prepare them for a
re-union in the world whr-vc all is
light. W. T. C.
