SaNtuml of our villag'', ?U<'il yesterday in <' ?-! lumbla. Her remains will arrive on tli.j even- j ing train to-day, and she will I>o Imriod so<>ni afterwards in the Episcopal cemetery. In t t-o I absence of the Keel or of Trinity church. Mi . Jackson will reait at me grave i tie nunai vice of the .Methodist clnnvh. The friends | of the deceased arc invited. In the death of Mrs. Stii;?1! we are furnish-1 ed with a reminder of the tiiuvrtamly <>i life, and the certainty of death After the wai she and her beloved husband. Msijor Andrew Small, were at the head of an Interesting family, all of whom seemed blessed with good health, and bright hopes for the future. I Jut death soon began to claim one atter another, until Ihe family is now so much reduced that only Mrs. Sassard of Abbeville and Mrs. 1>. A. Smith of Walhalla, survive the. death of their mother. Their plot in the ohnrcli-yard is nearly full. Mrs. Small was a remarkable woman ir. many respects. Among other good qualities she possessed great energy and business tact. During the war, while her husband and her son were away fighting the battles of their recently adopted country, she and her children, by the uso of the needle, made sufficient money to pay for the homestead which they theu occupied, and which is now owned by Mr. Julius II. Dul're. Mrs. Small was truly a good woman, - Tlie IlninN. The rains set in' last Wednesday morning and since then much ruin has falleu. In some Instances the streams have been high. The hardest rain fell some four or live miles North from Abbeville, doing some damage to the lands, and making two considerable washouts on the railroad between Abbeville and Hodges. The rain seems to have been hardest from Mr. E. Westlield's farm to Mr. Warren W. Keller's farm, near to where the railroad sustained injury. The crops on the low lands have generally honn nvortlowpih hut we are inclined to think that the farmers do not believe they have been seriously injured. The earth was being parched up to the time of the rain which came in Rood time. Cotton and other crops were being ruined by the drouth, but the earth is perfectly wet, rain having fallen during every day or night for a week. We need sunshine now Mr. Cannon's Store. We ask attention to the fact that Mr. II. W. Cannon has a new advertisement in this issue of our paper, In which he announces the removal of his|buslness to the store room belonging to Mrs. Robinson. It is a commodious place of business which has been recently putin nice condition. Mr. Cannon is one of the thrifty and careful merchants of Abbeville, whose business is steadily extending, and whose prosperity is assured. He Is thoroughly practical, and looks after every detail of his business. Customers will find him liberal and accommodating. Will See Hiiu Blessed. J. H.McDUl, Richard Hill, Dr.!S. G. Thomson, McD. Cater, Frank 15. Gary, J. C. Klugh, Dr. M. F. Game, P. B. Speed, Dr. G. A. Ndiffer, Dr. H. D. Wilson, will accompany Mr. Bell to Due West this morning to witness his marriage to the beautiful Miss Ciaudie Ellis The newly married people will take the evening train for New York, leaving hachclor friends to take care of themselves as best they may. Duking the counting of the votes on last Saturday nnd when the committee had nothing before it Capt. W. C. McGowan rose and said he wished to thank the people of Abbeville for the splendid vote which they had given hlin. We said the result ol the election was then uncertain, but whatever the result, that he would hold his head as high as the highest. That he had been fcorn and bred in Abbeville, expected to i!ve and die in Abbeville, and I hat he valued the splendid, endorsement of his neighbors even more than the office itself, should he be lucky enough to get it. He said that he had made the best run that he could, that being young and perfectly unknown in the upper eaunties, und being from Abbeville, that he had weight to carry from the very ,jump, but that he had the grateful and gratifying self-consciousness of having done nothing in tho canvass with which to reproach himself. That he had made a fair and honorable fight from iirst to last, and be the result what it may that he would always be proud of the wonderful vole that old Abbeville had given liiiu. We have quite a number of marriageable young people in town. Let them agree and hegiu life anew. A good man need not defer liis marriage because of his limited money. It would alTord a good woman the greatest pleasure to help him make a fortune. He that waits to be rich before ho marriages deprives a woman of her greatest pleasure?that of helping her husband to get rich, and he that waits too long is discounted ten time: as mucii as uiij muu iiiuiil.) ue juay uci umulnte would be worth. Mr. Richard Hoikjes, a planter residing near Hodges Depot, died on the 20th o!' August after several months of sutfering. He was 85 years old and leaves a wife auu live children. Mr. Hodges possessed those qualities whose brilliancy attracts and wins friends spontaneously. His neighbors loved him, and their anxiety wns shown by their daily visits to his bedside, lie was honest, faithful and true. Wsr. IS. Bell will leave to-day for Baltimore and New York to assist Miss Hood in buying bis fall and winterstock. He will buy the largest stock of goods this season that he has ever handled, and the ladles can expect everything new and novel in ladies' goods. Miss Hood has a wide reputation for taste and style, and understands the wants of the ladles. A difficulty occurred last Monday near Duo West between two colored men. Johu Stevens struck Jerry Turner with an axe. knocking him down. Turner rose to his feet and Immediately pave .Stevens a seveiecut with a knife. We are not informed as to the extent of the Injuries.

A protracted meeting is in progress in the Associate Reformed church here. Wo have some times wondered why our friends "H. C. D." did not occasionally givo us a glimpse of Washington life, In the 1'renx and J tanner. It would be interesting. The friends of Mrs. Jane Speer, of Atlanta, will be puined to hear of her recent death of heart disease at Tate Springs, Tenn. She was sick about two weeks and died surrounded by her sons and daughters. The Atlanta Constitution lias a full notice of her death. She was a sister of I>r. Norwood of this county. Her last words in reply to a question were: "1 am only viewing the Promised Land." A good womau is goue, and "the mourners go about the streets." Mr. W. L. Miller takes his defeat for the House most gracefully and In good humor. He made a gallant run for so young a man and has no cause to lament the race lie made. Mr. Calhoun, of (Jreeuwood, who bores our Tena t.'otta wells came near loosing a valuable mule in the creek this side of >ir. Robert HaUiJoil's. The water was "swimming high" and Mr. Calhoun only saved his minimal by plunging in and cutting him out. A little negro boy who told him he could cross "Just to see the fun," enjoyed it immensely, but was not to be seen after the fun ended. Mr. Sibley, of Augusta, Oa., is paying Due West a visit. It is strange how the young men love to visit L>uc West "just to see the town." . .. . The election is drawing to a ciose. Aot tlie least liard feeling has arisen iu Due West, over it. i Rev. N. E.

The mountain Counties too had a lavorite, uud they heat us. While v/care not satisfied with the result, yet we believe Mr. Ansel will make a flood Solicitor. Mr. Thomas S. Wake Jr., left on yesterday | morning for J'oughlteepsic, New York, where lie will spend a few months at lOastman'B Business College. Thomas is a Kood and competent young man, and we trust he will come hack 10 his lather's house much Improved and benefitted. The farmers arc grumbling about so much *.*!.% oixl if hncnlrwwlv 1 n intvtl thp rntinn crop to a considerable extent. The Uev. E. P. Davis and family of Winston, N.

Neville at Blackstocks on last Tuesday. They were given a hearty reception by their numerous friends on their return to Ninety-Six last Friday. They will board for the present with Mr. and Mrs. Geo. C. Probst. Col. Phillips and Capt. Lipscomb left yesterday morning for New/York. Mr. Miller of Miller & McCaslan let last Friday for the same place. It is rumored that a prominent widower of our community is soon to take unto himself a wife. Prof. Cork commenced his school on yesterday morning. Hy the way the school trustees have contracted for a S2.000 school building to be built at once. Miss Carrie Turner of Greenwood, and Mrs. Adams of Clinton are visiting friends here. Capt. Hale is still at Abbeville, and we are glad to hear that his health is very much improved. Mr. Joe Cartledge of the city of Greenwood was in town yesterday morning on business. The. Revs. Meadors and Craig and their families who have been spending somo time in the mountains have returned. The Rev. \V. H. Lanton, lather of Mrs. J. H. Rice and Mrs. J. P.

The County Commissioners should now make an appropriation to fix up the roads and bridges, the candidates have about worn them out. The rains of last Sunday did considerable damage to bottom corn in the vicinity of .Ninety-Six. Mr. Robt. C. Calhoun lost an infant child on last Thursday night. He and wife have tlio sympathy of the whole community. Tho many friends of Mr. F. P. McGowan of Laurens County, regret to hear of his defeat in the recent primary election in that County. The only objection they could urge against- Mr. McGowan was that he was a lawyer. We think the farmers' movement should collapse now as soon as posslb'e, especially so if men of brains and character shall go to the rear just because they are lawyers. Shame. Politics and religion go hand in hand in old Abbeville. If those negroes who voted the democratic ticket at the recent primary election voted the demociatlc ticket in Ninety-Six, and have voted the ticket at every election since, tion, but if they are new converts to democratic faith, and the managers allowed them to vote, the boxes at which they voted should be thrown out. It does not matter who it hurts, they ought not to bo counted. Many thanks to Greenwood for their support of Ninety-Six candidates at the recent primary election. This is just as it should be, wo are neighbors and should work to each others interest. The many friends of Mr. R. M. White regretted to hear of his dctth. Mr. White lived in this community for a long time, and his friends arouud Ninety-Six are legion. EAST END. Life Painting nt Mount Cnrmci. Mt. CakmeL, S. C., Sept. 3rd, 1888.

Election day passed off quietly until the dewy eve, when some of the boys were a little lively. Some of our candidates had working friends at this place. There never was a better class of candidates in the field, and we wish they all could have been elected to office. But such is life?somo must bo set down, and others placed in high positions. Mr. Jas. L. Lesley has been elected as principal of the Mt. Carmel High school, and Miss Nellie l'rcssley as assistant. This is a fine opening to build up a first class High .School. We have the material if the teachers will act well their part. Miss Bessie McDonald has the finest and most beautiful collection of geraniums in Mt Carmel. Hurry up your cotton and pay the merchants who have helped you through the long summer. They need the money and want to sell vnu nctiin. Our merchants are bringing in large and well assorted stocks, which they will sell for cash as cheap as auy market, and will always pay the highest price for cotton. W. It. Powel 1 is prepared to buy your cotton. bring it to him. We hear our efficient Dopot Agent and esteemed citizen, Mr. A. M. Moscley is about to leave Mt. Carmel for a better situation.

Parker one of our fairest and most useful young ladies, has left for the seven hilled city, where she will engage in business with one of the best llrms of that city. Our loss is Lowndesvllle's gain, and the writer wishes her abundant success in her new home. M. An Enquirer. I write in inquiry to ascertain facts. Did any of the managers of one or more voting precincts on yesterday In Abbeville County, suffer votes to be cast and deposited in the boxes, knowing the person or persons ofterlng to ballot, had never In tho past come forward and identified themselves in any way with the Democratic party, or may in years past, say in the campaign of '76, donned the red shirt, and was enrolled then as members?but hos not attended our local club meetings during this year, or likely not attended our meetings in say 8,10, or 12 years past, withheld themselves aloof, it is patient to all of us that they tiro not for us. The result of yesterday's election will he read before this will be published, and there is a goodly number of us who feel some Interest, and ask for facts pure and simple. We are rather of the opinion that some of our fellow citizens were over zealous for their man, and stepping outside of the Democratic ranks to secure the prize, or even looking up those old records 70,78,80, or any other period when it is known that tho negroes are not In sympathy with us, nor voting with us for reasons not known to this scribe.

Address John Alexander, CojfGAKEE Iron Works, Columbia, S. C. Extracts from Lowndesille Advertiser Abbeville County is one of the headquarters of Ben * Tillmanisni. The county convention elected an out-and< ut anti-Richardson delegation to the State Convention, but the primary elections nominated two first-class lawyers for seats in the next House of Representatives. The question thus arises, which is more truly the vox populi, the convention system or the primary plan? Abbeville is all right anyhow. She lias credit for earnest reformatory Zealand will have, in the next House, the ablest delegation she has sent to Columbia since 187fi.? Barnwell People. We would be glad to 'know of the People from what source it derives its information. We hope that lien Tillman can command a better following from his other headquarters tluiu from Abbeville, if not, he is badly left. The delegates to the coining State Convention are not an "out-andout anti-Richardson delegation," The delegates go uninstructed, and several are pronounced Richardson men. The rcoplc is correct in saying that we will have in the next House the ablest delegation we have had in Columbia since 1S7U. Arrival* at llio Moni'Icj' Hotel. J. T. llacket, Atlanta, (Ja.; W. I,.

Bleckley Co. for 15 cents. The cotton was classed strict middling, and the bale weighed 782 pounds. Capt. Allen sold the first bale last year. The bale this year was ginned on the same day of the month as the bale of last year was, but it was one day later in getting to market. This looks as if the crop is as early as last year. Capt. Allen is one of Anderson county's most progressive young farmers, and he expects to harvest about 150 bales of cotton this year.?Anderson Intelligencer. *<4^* The Congressional Convention of the Second District met last week and had a deadlock.

Extracts from Christian Neighbor ' Ouc of Paul's Exhortations. Rejoice evermore! Paul does not say, rejoice when the sun shines, rejoice when there is a good harvest, rejoice when money comes in fast;? neither does he say rejoice when you are ." j strong in body, nor rejoice when friends smile and visit you. The exhortation is, rejoice evermore. Paul knew whereof he wrote. He and Silas had rejoiced in the gaol when beat eu and put in the stocks. Paul rejoiced that he was worthy to suffer these things, he gloried that he suffered for Christ's sake. In his memorable address before King Aggrippa, that address which has thrilled the world " with its simplicity and pathos, what does he say in conclusion? The King, bis judge, had listened with a trembling heart to the words of the faithful preacher, and was dismissing the prisoner, "Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian." Paul responds, "I would to God that not only thou, but" also all that hear me this day, were both almost, and altoger such as I am, except these bonds." Such courage, such cheerfulness under trial and persecution ! Surely Paul's words are not meaningless. He knew perplexity, danger, pain, persecution, yet he says, rejoice evermore. Then he did not thus exhort because of ignorance of ? - f . v.. ji,i '51 tlie clarKer experiences 01 me; u? um not say, rejoice evermore, because his path in life was an easy one, because he had never known hunger, or thirst, or sickness, or loss or perils. Listen to his own concise recital of some of his experiences : "Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one. Twice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep; In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren; In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness." He had, of a surety, a kuowledge of some of the '.'troubles of life." But, brave and courageous through all. he says, rqjoice evermore. But some of our later day Christians ask skeptically, What! rejoice that you are sick? rejoice that you lose your property? rejoice that friends forsake you? Never I No, unbeliever, rejoice not that these things are true, rejoice not that they come into your life, but; rejoice despite these afflictions, in the midst of them, while suffering under them rejoice. Paul knew something of the power of the gospel over men's hearts, he knew somewhat of its sustaining power which enabled men to rejoice evermore. His exhortation meant either something or nothing. Coukl it mean nothing? If so, what is the value of his other writlugs ? If, however, "he meant what he said," could he mean less than he said ? And that was, rejoice evermore. A water spout swept through Hot Springs, Arkansas, oil the night of August 30, wrecking many buildings and drowning five persons. The main thoroughfare, Central Avenue, was an angry river, whose rushing tide swept everything movable on its bosom. Estimated dama&re is S100.000. Later, Sept. 1. Two visitors at Hot Springs have reached Little Rock. They report thirteen persons drowned, and that the desolation is beyond description. Houses along Central Aveuue are badly undermined. A letter to the Wcsleyan Christian Acloocate from Dr. Y. J. Allen, and dated San Francisco, August 11, says he is on the eve of sailing for China. He says : "This being the favorite missionary steamer, I had expected to meet 011 board with a number of recruits for the missions in China. Among the passengers are one or two new missionaries, but no old ones returning. We shall go the northern route, 4S degrees north, so expect a pleasant and quick voyage.
