The Board of County Commissioners had considerable business of importance under consideration at their monthly meeting on Tuesday last. Changes in the roads from Seneca to nigh Falls and from Westminster to Fort Madison were decided upon. The surveys of these routes have been made by Mr. John-V.

The bridge across Chauga will be about one-half mile i.bove the present site. The contract was let to Mr. Warren T. Davis for 859. A survey and profile of the new route over the Stumphouse Mountain will be made by Mr. J. V. Stribling at an early day.

DEAR COURIER: On the night of the 27th instant the store of J. H. Sullivan & Son, of Fort Madison, was entered by a burglar and twenty-five or thirty dollars' worth of goods stolen. Suspicion pointed to a young white man who was loafing about the place the evening before. Several persons were soon on the track of him and he was captured eight miles North of Mount Airy Friday night by Mr. Jim Jones, of Fort Madison, assisted by two officers of Mount Airy. None of the goods were recovered except a pair of shoes he had on. The thief proved to be one Will Jones, an escaped convict from the Georgia chain gang.

C., April 29, 1S93. DEAK COURIER: AS it has been some time since I wrote to your valuable paper I will try to give you the news of this community. The forest putting on its livery of green aud the birds singing in the early morning make one exclaim, "Oh ! how beautiful is the spring time." The farmers are getting along very well with their crops. Most of then: are done planting and some have worked over upland corn. Cotton is not up to a good stand yet. The small grain is look ing well, especially wheat, and, if no thing happens the general opinion is that there will be 2 good crop made this year. The fruit lias not been injured by the cold weather and-we guess there will be a good crop. There was a party of young folks from this community who went to Kort Hill Saturday on a pleasure trip. Miss Savannah Sullivan, of Anderson, visited her sister, Mrs. Able.', and the photographer at this place to-Jay (Satur day). Mr. Furman McLeskey is still improv ing.

Welch w as beloved "hy all who knew her. and there was great sorrow in our community when it was known that she was no more. She had been a great sufferer at times for several months and death must have been, to her. a happy release. She was a conse crated, self-denying Christian woman. She was buried in Oak Hill Cemetery on Sunday at 12 o'clock, after appropriate funeral services, conducted by her pas tor. Kev. E. P. Hutson. The floral con tributions were abundant and beautiful. Mr. F. M. Cary has taken charge of the Keowee Hotel and will give it his per sonal attention. The old patrons of this hotel have" pleasant recollections of Frank as a hotel manager. The excursion to Atlanta to-day was well patronized. There were about 400 passengers. Kev. .J. A. Wilson has had a flattering call to a charge in North Carolina, but his many friends will be pleased to hear that he has. declined and decided to remain here. The meeting is still in progress at the Methodist church. Mr. Hutson was dis appointed in getting Dr. Smith to help him and at present has no help, but is still in hopes of getting som'' one to assist him. T. Interesting Meeting, a Generous Com mui-iiy. Large Congregations and Fine Speaking. [For the Keowee Courier.] The union meeting was held with the Poplar Springs Baptist church, live miles below Walhalla, on last Saturday and Sunday. Thc meeting was organized by re-electing the former officers. The churches sent up a good delegation, and the brethren came.up determined to make the meeting a success. The introductory seimon was preached on Saturday hythe Rev. I). B. Wait It was a fine discourse, and during its deliv ery all present saw that the preacher had studied well his sermon. Thc text used was Paul's inquiry, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? After the introduction the speaker discoursed on three main points, drawn from the text: these were submission, faith and work. These points were earnestly and simply presented. After the sermon twenty-five minutes remained before intermission. Your scribe was asked to occupy this time, which he did, using the same text and dwelling upoa the importance and neces sity of faith. An intermission followed for refresh ments. Trunks and baskets and boxes were then opened and their contents spread out under the shade of the trees and the large congregation did full jus tice to that wi-.ch was spread before them. After the intermission the congrega tion reassembled in the house to hear the interesting questions on the programme discussed. Each question was read out by the moderator and discussed by the brethren. The speeches were good, and by the earnestness manifested all present saw that the questions were of vital importance to the welfare of the church. At night at 8 P. M. your scribe preached to a crowded house. Thus ended a very pleasant and. we hope, a very profitable day for Poplar. Sunday was the great day of the feast. At half-past 9 in the morning the Sunday school assembled. The speakers ap pointed to address the school were all absent. Your scribe was requested to discharge this duty, which he did, basing his remarks on Bible study. The time had now arrived for the charity sermon, which was preached by this writer. The house was too small for the crowd; many outsiders were unable to get inside. After the sermon there was a recess for dinner. After dinner we went back into the house, and a - -t of the after noon was devoted to the centennial. There was but one speaker, and that was your writer. The good people of Poplar know how to work a minister, if we are to judge from the way in which they worked this writer. This was my first visit to Poplar Spring-?. and in the near future, Providence per mitting, I shall renew my visit. The health of the community is good, as I heard of no sickness. The grain crop in that section is looking well. The people are generous in their hospitality. They know how to make a poor fellow feel at home. My stay during the meet ing was with Bro. Robinson and wife. Bro. R. is 76 years old, and his dear wife is much younger. They are full of life, activity and devotion. They are growing old beautifully and gracefully. This account of our meeting would be incomplete if I did not mention the sweet music dispensed by Sister Morton and choir, assisted bx Prof. John ' Reid.? It was ve:.-y appropriate and soul-inspiring. Our meeting was a success. Th?? Poplar Springs church and community will not soon forget the meeting. The delegates returned to their homes, undoubtedly feeling that it was good to be there. R. W. SrrMOCR. Westminster Dots WESTMINSTER. S. C., May 2,1S93. DEAR COURIER: A fine rain fell on Monday night which was badly needed and will bring up the cotton and the grass too. On last Thursday the following young gentlemen and ladies made a trip to Fort Hill by private conveyance and report a most pleasant visit: Dr. W. A. Sheldon, Messrs. W. P. Dickson, C. E. Mason, Claude Little, L S. Pitts, J. A. Terrell, B. M. England and H. J. Cox, of Toccoa, Ga., Misses Pauline Mason, Sue King, Sadie Quillian, Daisy Justus, Bessie Nor ris, Effie Dickson and Mrs. C. E. Gray. The storehouse of Messrs. J. H. Sulli van <& Son, of Fort Madison, was entered by burglars one night last week. They gained admittance by going to Mr. Sulli van's wood pile and getting his axe and crushing out the glass just above the door. Two suits of clothing, several pairs of shoes and a quantity of canned goods were stolen. They pulled off their old shoes and left them at the door steps. They also ate several boxes of sardines before leaving. Three strange looking loungers were seen in the town the day previous, and it is supposed that all of them were connected with the robbery. An escaped convict of ' the Georgia peni tentiary was captured near Mount Airy, Ga., the latter part of the week who was connected with the robbery. His name is Will Jones. He was not brought over, as he has five more months to serve in the penitentiary of that State. He had concealed all the stolen property and refused to tell where he put it. There was a small reward for his arrest Last Wednesday afternoon Mr. C. E. Simpson and wife, who reside in this place, came near meeting with a serious accident. They were returning from the held riding in a road cart pulled by a wild mule. When near the residence of Mr. Newell, two miles above town, they were run into by a crowd of drunken men who live in thi? place, and were riding in a livery stable outfit, driven by a colored driver. One of the drunk men was driving at the time of the accident. Mr. Simpson was riding near the edge of the road and the horse that was driven by the drunken men struck Mr. Simpson's cart wheel and smashed it to the ground, breaking the wheel to pieces and throw ing Mr. Simpson and the horse to thc ground together at the same time. The horse sustained severe injuries and Mr. Simpson and wife escaped unhurt, but badly frightened. Had he not had good hold of the lines his mule would have run away and both occupants might have been killed. Mr. Simpson says the road is eighteen feet wide where they struck him and he had driven to one side to give room for them to pass. Children's Day will be observed at the Presbyterian church on the next fourth Sunday at 0.4? A. M. Messrs. W. P. An derson, of this place, and J. W. Todd, of Seneca, have been elected to make ad dresses. Mr. T. N. Carter has recently had his commodious dwelling plastered and has had a nice yard fence built, which adds greatly to the appearance of his premises. Mr. Carter now claims to have the pret tiest and best residence in town. Capt. J. A. Ballenger, who resides a few miles below here, was taken seriously ill one day last week. : He is still very low, but thought to be some better this week. Mr. (I. Blackwell, a blacksmith of this place, has opened up a photograph gal lery in connection with his other work. Fie is now prepared to do work for those desiring anything in that line. Mr. P. S. White, of Atlanta, Ga., visited his father. Mr. R. F. White, this week. Prue was as jovial as ever and looked as if Atlanta agrees with him. J. R. Gossett, Esq., editor of theEasley Democrat, and Mr T. F. Gossett and wife, of Bickens county, visited relatives in and near Westminster this week. Mrs. S. T. Marett is visiting her sister, Mrs. Terrell, at Seewana, Ga. We unintentionally made an error in a paragraph bust week. Where we said Rev. McBryde would preach at Return we should have said Retreat. !.. A Delegate. [Frankfort . Ky.- Daily Call, April 29.] Rex-. W. G. Neville, who has been at tending the Presbytery of his church at McIIenry. in'Ohio county, returned home yesterday afternoon. He was made the delegate from his Presbytery to thc Gene ral Assembly of the Southern Presbyte rian churches, which meets in Macon, Georgia. The honor was worthily be stowed, for we know of no divine in the State who could lill the exalted position wi'h more Christian grace than Rev. Neville, of the Southern Presbyterian church, of Frankfort. The Death of a Man of God. [Anderson Intelligencer, May 3.] Rev. W. F. Pearson died at his home in Due West last Monday afternoon. On Thursday morning of the week before he had an attack of apoplexy. He became unconscious and remained so until his death. Mr. Pearson was born in Spartanburg county about 5$ or 60 years ago. He studied theology, became a Presbyterian minister, and spent his life in preaching the gospel-doing good and teaching^nen the way of life. When a young man he lived in this city and county for a time. While here he married the daughter of the late Maj. James Thompson. Mrs. Pearson and three sons and one daughter survive him. For many years Mr. Pearson was a citi zen of Due West, and he had tae entire confidence and esteem of the people of that town. He was pastor of the Long C ane and Greenville churches, and was loved by the members of his pastorates. He was buried at-Yarennes on Tuesday evening, Dr. Frierson. of this city, con ducting the funeral c jmonies. Mr. Pearson was ?widely known, and was Grand Chaplain of fhe Knights of Honor at the time of his death. The ('burch and Sta_e has lost a godly man and a valuable citizen, who has en tered into the reward prepared io? the righteous. GOT. Northen on Lynching. [Atlanta Constitution.] ATLANTA, GA., April 27.-I s?.3k an early opportunity to thank you most heartily for the editorial in this day's issue of the Constitution, "A Mistaken View," No citizen of this State can ever know what it costs, in nerve power, to stand in front of the determined purpose of the people to take the law into their own hands in certaiu cases of outrace and violence. Before I came into office I determined upon the policy I have followed as to lynching and while I have been fixed in my purpose I fully understand the great odds against me. Our civilisation cannot stand these shocks by lawless violence. Until we guarantee security to all classes and con ditions of people we cannot hope for de velopment through the investment of capital or the progress of our own people. It is my determined purpose, therefore, to pursue my 'policy as to lynching in every case that comes to my notice. I shall offer a reward for the mob, regard leas of their character and position be fore the people, making no distinction as to the crime they seek to pusish or the criminal they unlawfully abuse. I im truly, ?tc., W. J.' NOBTHSX, Governor. All Paid Bat Nance's. ? [The News and Courier.] The case of the County Sheriffs, who were led into disobeying the orders of the United States Court, has been settled at last. Yesterday morning Attorney J. E. Burke walked into the Clerk's office and handed him a check which read as follows: "CHARLESTON, S. C., April 29, 1893. No. 237. Bank of Charleston, X. B. A., pay to the order of Sol. J. E. Hagood, Clerk of the United States Circuit Cou.?, eighteen hundred and ninety-one dollars 97-000. (Signed) "LOKD ? BURKE."

Chamber lain as Receiver, Petitioner, vs. M. V. Tyler. Sheriff of Aiken county, Mc Mitchell, Treasurer of Aiken county, in re Frederick W. Bound vs. the South Carolina Railway company and others. "It having been brought to the atten tion of the court that the defendant in this case has paid the fine imposed on him with costs: It is ordered that he be discharged from the custody of the Marshal and that he go hence without day. So much of the order as directs the entry of judgment for said fine and costs is recinded. "CHARLES H. SLMON'TON, "United States Judge." April 29, 1893.: Similar orders were issued in the cases of Sheriff Gaines, of Anderson, and She riff Riser, of Newberry, but poor Fred. Nance, of Abbeville, was left out in the cold. Gov. Tillman had made no pro vision for him, and now he will have to put up his 8500 or an execution will be issued against him and his property will be seized. The fine of each of the She riffs was ?'500 and the additional &?91 97-100 is for costs to the court. AT FORT HILL. [People's Advocate.] A trip to Fort Hill, a few days ago, showed than an immense amount of sub stantial work has been done in the last few months. The finishing touches are being given the college building, and it is said to be the finest college building in the South. The inside is finished in pine and oiled, and all the rooms are well ventilated, have high ceilings and plenty of trght The dormitory is completed and ready to be furnished. This is an immense building heated by steam and lighted by electricity, and can accommodate 000 to $00 boys. All of thc work is being pushed for ! ward, and, by the time the college opens, everything necessary will bc in readiness. The farm look;: just like a well-regu lated farm should look; and if thc farm I ers who receive the bulletins of the ex j p?riment station, giving the results of I the different experiments with farm pro i ducts, will carefully study them they will i gain much practical and profitable infor mation. Gol. Newman, who is in charge j of the experiment station, also professor of agriculture, is very practical and com bines scientific knowledge with common sense. All the best cultivated land will not "be on the road," as is usually the i case, but ail of it will be on the road, as numerous drives are being ?pened up so thar, any one may drive all over the place. ' South Carolina will soon have a first class agricultural college in operation and if the farmers do not profit by it they j will have no one to blame.

Probably the largest tombstone in the world is that of the late Henry Scarlett, of Upson county, Georgia. Several years before Mr. Scarlett's death he selected a monster boulder-a miniature mountain of granite, 100 feet by 250 in dimensions -and when he died this huge tombstone was placed over his grave.

C., May 2.-Dr. Sampson Pope, of Newberry, who is a candidate for the position of United States Marshal, is on his high horse about the decision of the United States Supreme Court in the famous railroad case, which was adverse to the position taken by the State of South Carolina. He stated to-day that he had written President Cleveland a letter informing him that if he were appointed marshal he would not serve under a court holding such views as are expressed in the railroad decision. In the letter he stated that he had no sym pathy for a court that favored "rotten corporations." The man who called sarsaparilla a fraud, had good reason; for he got hold of a worthless mixture at "reduced rates." Tie changed his opinion, how ever, when he began to take Ayer's Sar saparilla.

C., May 2.-There seems now to be no reason for doubt of the guilt of Wade Haines, the young negro convicted of murdering Miss Florence Hornsby, of this county, and who has several times been respited by Gov. Till man in the belief that he was innocent. The Governor to-day announced that he would no longer delay the execution, which will take place here next Friday. This case has excited the most wide spread interest and there is hardly a man in Columbia who has been of opinion that the boy was guilty. For several months Detective McMannus, of Charles ton, has been working on the case, and his reports submitted to the Governor state that there is no truth in the state ment of one Lazarus Field, who made affidavit that an old negro on his death bed told him that he had found the bloody clothes of a white man who had committed the crime with which Haines was charged : and that all his investiga tions tended to disprove every point made to establish Haines' innocence. In announcing his decision to-day Gov. Till man stated that he had given the case more patient investigation and careful thought than any he had had before him. "If he is innocent, as many believe he is," th< Governor said, "he is the victim of the strongest circumstantial evidence that has ever b*en brought to my atten tion." To Preserve The richness, color, and beauty of the hair, the greatest care is necessary, much harm being done by the use of worthless dressings. To be sure of hav ing a first-class article, ask your drug gist or perfumer for Ayer's Hair Vigor. It is absolutely superior to any other preparation o? the kind. It restores the original color and fullness to hair which has become thin, faded, or gray. It keeps the scalp cool, moist, and free from dandruff. It heals itching humors, prevents baldness, and imparts to THE HAIR a silken texture and lasting fragrance. N*o toilet can be considered complete without this most popular and elegant of all hair-dressings. "My hair began turning gray and fall ing out wheu I was about 25 years of age. I have lately been using Ayer's Hair Vigor, and it is causing a new growth of hair of the natural color." B. J. Lowry, Jones Prairie, Texas. "Over a year ago I had a severe fever, and when I recovered, my hair began to fall out, and what little remained turned gray. I- tried various remedies, but without success, till at last I began to USE Ayer's Hair Vigor, and now my hair is growing rapidly and is restored to its original color." -Mrs. Annie Collins, Dighton, Mass. "I have used Ayer's Hair Vigor for nearly five years, and my hair ia moist, glossy, and in an excellent state of pres ervation.
