LETTER FROM CHESTER. Chester, March 26.?The amount of business done in Court last week after my letter of the 19th had been forwarded, was of little importance. One more Ethiopian was tried late Tuesday afternoon, Kdward Beckham by name, the charge against him being that of house breaking. Tnejury rendered a verdict of not guilty. Only one case up for trial on Wednesday, that against Dr. C. L. Clawson for selling whisky without a license or prescription. The jury failed to agree in this case and a new trial was ordered. During the day Judge Fraser .passed sentences on those convicted prisoners who had not been sentenced before. Issabud Lumpkin was sent to the penitentiary for one year. Fred. Washington was given two years, and John Nelson five years at same institution ; Vic. Hardin was sent to the county jail for two months. The grand jury made a short report in the latter part of which they expressed themselves as being wen pieasea to see that the bar-keepers had taken down their screens. The attention of the Court was called to this matter by a committee from the Chester Lodge of Good Templars, which had been appointed for that purpose. The law was plain on the subject and the presence of a screen in a bar-room, although a common piece of bar-room furniture, is nevertheless a plain and unmistakable violation of the general liquor law. Furthermore, the special license act, which has proven such a gold mipe to Chester, imposes heavy penalties on the violation "in any respect" of the liquor law, one of the penalties being that any person convicted in the county court of such a violation shall be forever and eternally debarred from holding a license in Chester again. The grand jury probably realized that it was easier for a camel to pass to the top of a greasy pole than for a Chester jury to say guilty in a whisky case, so they did not make a presentment, but simply told the bar-keepers they had better take down their screens before somebody got hurt. This was done promptly, and now the unobstructed light shines in and the breezes blow through unhindered. The Chester Manufacturing Company have begun work on the houses for their hands. Ten frame buildings will be erected, and it is said that the factory hands at Chester will be better supplied in this respect than those of any other factory in this part of the State. Six of these houses will contain eight rooms each, and are to be two stories in height. Four one story cottages will be erected also, each containing four rooms. The annual meeting of the stockholders of the Chester and Camden Kailroad was held here last Thursday. The meeting resulted in the formation of the Camden, Chester and Gaffney City Kailroad Company, which is a revised, enlarged and improved edition of the former corporation. An election of officers was held for the ensuing year. The election resulted in the choice of J. V. Sarratt as president. The following board of directors was also chosen: J. K. Henry, J. W. Wilks, J. It. Culp, l)r. S. M. Wylie, R. C. Thompson, J. A. Carroll, T). A. Thomas and J. A. Wood. S. B. Lathan was elected secretary and treasurer. Five or six additional subscriptions to the stock of the company were taken at the meeting. The board was authorized to elect a financial agent whose especial duty will be the management of the finances of the company to be expended in the construction of that part of the road lying between the town of Gaflfney and the North Carolina line. The board will also fix the amount of the bond to be given by the financial agent. The directors were further authorized to mortgage the road at a rate not to exceed $20,000 a mile. The next annual meeting of the stockholders will be held at Gaffney on the third Thursday in March, 1890. Mr. William Reynolds delivered an interesting and earnest Sunday-school address at the Presbyterian church Sunday afternoon. Mr. Reynolds is the president of the International Sunday-school Convention, and is a widely known Sundayschooi worker. His home is in Illinois. Mr. Reynolds stopped in Chester while on his way to attend the session of the State Sunday-school Convention which convenes in Charleston to-day. The Lee Light Infantry has been agitating the question of going to New York in April. This warlike troop has been rather quiet of late. In fact they always Rtanai do -keep quiet until an inspection, or a very big and very cheap excursion comes along, when the Lees usually come out from their ambush and make a successful raid. Six new members were added to the company last week. They have not fully decided about the centennial trip yet, but a conclusion will probably be reached this week. Mr. Jerry. T. Walker, a former citizen of this county, died recently in Marion county, Florida. He had been a resident of that State for about three years. Mr. W. O. Guy, of Lowrysville, proposes to try for the $1,000 corn prize offered by the American Agriculturist. Mr. William It. Kitchens and Miss Ida Jackson were married on the 10th inst., at the residence of the bride's father. Rev. R. W. Sanders performed the ceremony. A new street is to be opened from the factory to Depot street, coming out where Peter Agurs lives. Correspondence of the Yorkville Enquirer. NOTES FROM BLACKSTUCK. Blackstock, March 25.?The weather of the past week has been very favorable for farming operations in our community and all seemed to be taking advantage of their opportunities. Several persons are through with their corn planting, but the great majority seem to think their best plan would be to put off planting a week or two longer. There is a great scarcity of seed coru in these parts, and it has been impossible, thus far, for some to obtain it from sources which never failed them before. Large quantities of commercial fertilizers are being hauled from our town daily. Indeed, so great seems to be the demand, that our merchants find some difficulty in supplying it fast enough. We notice, also, that large consignments of hay are being received here, which we take as auything else than an indication of the prosperous condition of our farming classes. There was a marriage in town last Thursday, and though the contracting parties came from some distance in the county to have the nuptial knot tied, it was not a "runaway match." The groom, Mr. Ed. McWatters, had dispatched one of his lriends to town the day before to arrange preliminaries for that afternoon, but, somehow or other, no one was found to perform the ceremony ; so the event had to be postponed. On Thursday, however, the services of Rev. W. G. Neville were secured, and by him the mystic words were spoken that bound into one the hith erto separate lives of Mr. McYVatters and Miss Mattie Perry. The ceremony took place about fi ve o'clock in tho afternoon, at the residence of Mrs. Susan McKuskey, and was witnessed by a few friends. The sad news of the death of Mr. Rob. Brice, whose illness at Due West was noticed in your last issue, reached Blackstock last Friday morning. He had been among us so recently in all the beauty and strength of vigorous young manhood, that it was hard to realize that he had passed from earth forever. Many of his youthful years had been spent in the community, and many were the friends and admirers of his, who looked forward with bright anticipations to the life of usefulness for which his talent seemed to have fitted him. In the graveyard of Hopewell church, of which his father had for many years been pastor, and where his remains lie buried, the mourning relatives wished their loved one to rest; accordingly the body was brought to Blackstock Friday night and was taken hence to Hopewell next morning, where the funeral services were conducted by the pastor, Rev. John A. White. Correspondence of tbe Yorkvllle Enquirer. . LETTER FROM LANCASTER. Lancaster, March 2o.?The town of Lancaster put on some gaiety last week, but the same was regulated with becoming propriety and moderation. Miss Nannie Hudson, of this place, was, on the evening of the 20th instant, united in wedlock to Mr. W. B. Alexander, of Birmingham, Alabama. It is said to have been a brilliant wedding. The marriage ceremony was celebrated at the house of Mr. J. C. Payseur, the brother-in-law of the bride, by the Rev. A. L. Stowe, of the Baptist church, in the presence of quite a number of invited guests from Birmingham, Atlanta, York, Chester and this town and county. The whole party was a select one; and the social feature of the affair is highly commended. The wedding supper spread for the invited guests is said to have been most abundant and choice in style and matter. The ladies were exquisitely dressed, and the gentlemen were all in good style, the silk beaver hat and the spike tail coat being freely in use. The bride received some'haudsome presents, each one of the guests contributing a present of some sort. The bride and groom and visiting guests all left the next morning on the 9 o'clock train of the Three C's road, accompanied, as far as Yorkville, by a party from Lancaster, who returned on the evening train. The uewly married couple, before going to Birmingham, contemplate quite an extensive tour through the Northern States, upon which they have already set out. Miss Nannie was deservedly held in high repute here, on account of her sweet disposition, elegant manners and beautiful person. We all wish her a prosperous voyage through life, and a blissful future beyond the yale. On last Friday night, just before the Blacksburg train approached Catawba Junction, a cross-tie was discovered lying right across the track. Some kind individual discovered it before the train reached the spot, and waived the train down with a light, just in time to prevent a catastrophe. There seems to be some fatality about Catawba Junction; for here the young lady was insulted; Mr. Abernathy was killed, and a trian ran off the track near there some lime ago. A wicked purpose, by this last act, was certainly manifested, and there is some bad person or persons behind it. The continuous rains here keep the farmers in a backward state. It look^ now as if we were going tp have another wet spell. The peach trees are now in bloom, and if we ao not have considerable^ frost hereafter, we will have fruit-fnis year. We have had no fruit here of any consequence for two or three years. Some il. 1 1 T.:H ui uie lucui prupueio any mat una win uo a good fruit year as well as a good crop year. Nosilla.

My little boy broke out with ulcers and sores, the result of the saliva from a call's mouth coming in contact with a cut finger. The ulcers were deep and very painful, and showed no inclination to heal. I used quite a number of remodies, with no benefit, but got Swift's Specific, and he improved with the first fewdoses and in a short time was sound and well of the poison, and his personal health much improved. John T. Heard. Auburn, Ala., Feb. 25,1889. In 1883 I contracted Blood Poison of a bad type, and was treated with mercury, potash and sarsaparilla mixtures, growing worse all the time. I took seven small bottles of S. S. S., which cured me entirely, and no sign of the dreadful disease has returned. J. C. Nance. Hobby ville, Ind., Jan. 10, 1889. Swift's Specific is entirely vegetable, and cures Blood Poison by forcing the taint out through the pores of the skin. Send for treatise on Blood and Skin Diseases, mailed free.

C.: Dear Sir .-?In my occupation as a house painter, I have used in the past'10 years many brands of Paint, but none have given such satisfaction to my employers and myself as the Longman <k Martinez Pure Prepared Paint.

It is the purest and best prepared paint on the market. Yours truly, Wm. T. Hill, Pradical Painter and Grainer.

"Another wonderful discovery has been made and that, too, by a lady in this county. Disease fastened its clutches upon her and for seven years she withstood its severest tests, but her vital organs were undermined and death seemed imminent. For three mouths she coughed incessantly and could not sleep. She bought of us a bottle of Dr. King's New Medical Discovery for Consumption, and was so much relieved on taking the first dose that she slept all night, and with one bottle has been miraculously cured.

Abraham Hare, Druggist, Bollville, Ohio, aflirms: "The best selling medicine I have over handled in niv twenty years' experience, is Electric Bitters."

We have had the manhood and courage to map out our plans of action and publish them to the world; and what is more, we have had the grit to stick to these plans and put them into execution. The Yorkville Racket has been in operation nearly a year, and what it has accomplished can be testified to by thousands of people in this section of the State, and its merits in the future shall only bo measured by its supernatural success in the past.

CARTWRIGHT <fc CO., Proprietors. Nkw York Offick, 466 Broadway. I - W. . LATIMER. AT HOME AGAIN. MISS SHIRES, MISS ANTHONY and MYSELF have* returned from NEW YORK where we have been for the past two weeks, buying our stoek of Spring and Summer goods, which I think, were bought under the most favorable circumstances at the lowest possible prices. The Dressfioods were bought under tho supervision of Miss Shires, and the Millinery by Miss Anthony, which I think is sufficient guarantee as to quality and beauty and as to prices they will be right. I am too busy to givo a detailed idea of my stock this week, but look out next. OUR CARRIAGE. Remember that my Carriage-will convey customers to and from tho Three C's depot, when nreviouslv notified. FREE OF CII AR< 110. Latimer's Fashion Bazaar. ? During the coming season, which will open in about two weeks, I propose to spare no oUbrts in makinginy establishment the BAZAAR OF FASHION for the upper partof tho State, rt lias for years enjoyed thiAnrivaled reputation of being "second to nofpch establishment in the Carolinas," and with the experience I have already had, together with hard work, untiring energy, close attention to tho wants and demands of my customers and business, I will bo able to give tho people of this section nn establishment that will bo a credit to them and myself alike. With tho very best and finest goods in stock at the most reasonable prices, I will be prepared to accommodato tho most fastidious with all tho Novelties of tho day! Prompt Payment Is Essential To a good credit, which by tho way is a very good thing to remember, as I am one of the very few in tho Dry Goods business who extend credit accommodations to patrons. EIDERDOWN IN COLORS. I have several pieces of Eiderdown left which I will close out at a bargain. Call and see it. I offer inducements for cash and you will do well to call and see mo when you want anything in my line. Baying on Credit With Money in Your Pocket Is a practico which a large number of people engage in and which works nothing but embarrassment and extravagance to parties who indulgo in it. You need credit when you have ?a ?nnnnv arwl vnnr tn'Oilit iu mnnmirml hv your disposition and ability to pay. Of course if you buy necessary goods on credit and pay cash for luxuries, you are more than apt to jeopardize your credit and probably work hardships which may require a life iimo to overcome. UNDERWEAR FOR LADIES. I have a large stock of Underwear for Ladies and Children which I am closing out at greatly reduced prices. Call and examine this stock of goods. Also Children's Underwear. A Job Lot of Hair Brushes and Combs. I have just received a job lot of Hair Brushes and Combs which I am able to sell at very close figures. Call and got one while you have the opportunity. 500 YARDS OF JEANS. I have on hands i>00 yards of tho very best quality of Jeans which must and will be sold. The price at which I am offering it is very low; in fact it is cheaperthan I can replace the goods, but I must have cash at the price invariably. Another Lot of Fine Dress Goods. Of all the nice Dress (foods that I have ever handled, my stock of German-faced Henrietta Finished Dress Goods beats them all. They are 3(> inches wide, and twenty-five cents per yard is tho price that I am selling them, and they are certainly the cheapest and best goods 1 ever handled. My Laces and Embroideries range from 2 cents per yard up and they must go. MISCELLANEOUS BARGAINS. I have just received a large lot of the celebrated NEW HOME SEWING MACHINES which are undoubtedly the best machines on tho market. A first-class Traveling Dag can be obtained from me at a bargain. In fact I handle everything, and you can get anything you want from a toilet pin to the finest silk* dress under ono and tho same roof. W. C. LATIMER, Proprietor of Fashion Bazaar of Yorkville. mTmTTnnn a T\TAT7Tnn WITJIJUiiO THE OLD WAY OF TRADE WAGS on at tlie Adickes' Building. Fresh and seasonable merchandise of all sorts, save liquors and pills, and ahvays at lowost market prices. We make a big boast when we claim to nrotect our patrons in prices, and even often to save them monoy. We believe in the best goods, and while public clamor often demands inferior goods, we always sell them with your eyes opened by our protest to this effect. As to prices, wo think we buy our goods low, and try to sell them accordingly, though we are not of that class who sell at cost, for we can't make a living that way. Cost is quite a comparative word, and sometimes it means very costly. We don't believe in selling one thing at cost in order to sell something else costlier. Our prices are open to the world. No confidential prices, though they differ as to qualtities. We ask your special attention to our prices and think' they will stand the light of any legitimate business. SEASONABLE.
