Correspondence of the Yorkville Enquirer.
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.
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.
Correspondence of tbe Yorkvllle Enquirer.
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
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

Poisoned by a Calf.
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.

cures Blood Poison by forcing the taint out
through the pores of the skin. Send for treatise

John C. Kuykendai., Yorkville, S. 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

can recommend it for its great covering properties,
two coats being equal to three of any
other paint that I have used, its consequent
economy to the consumer, its ease of handling
and application and its durability. It is the
purest and best prepared paint on the market.
Yours truly, Wm. T. Hill,

A Womuii'M Discovery.
"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. Her name is Mrs. Luther
Lutz." Thus write W. C. Hamrick A Co., of

St a Hit's Drug Store.
The Verdict Unanimous.

"I can recommend Electric Bitters as the very
best remedy. Every bottle sold has given relief
in every instance. One man took six bottles,
and was cured of Rheumatism of 10 years'
standing." Abraham Hare, Druggist, Bollville,
Ohio, aflirms: "The best selling medicine
I have over handled in niv twenty years' experience,
is Electric Bitters." Thousands of others

enormous stock of Spring and Summer goods
have arrived and our shelves are groaning under
the pressure, and it will give us unbounded
pleasure to carry you through our stock and
quote the prices of the wonderful bargains wo

Our stock comprises everything usually kept
in a well selected stock of Dry Goods, Clothing,
Boots, Shoes, Hats, Notions, Ac., and it is our
determination in the future to lead in these
lines as well as in all others kept by us. 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. With this assurance,
we ask our friends to continue their patronage
with us, and we will guarantee to supply
them with reliable goods at the most reasonable
prices possible.
In our stock of Dry Goods we have everything
to make the department full and complete.
In Dress Goods we have some very handsome

Worsted Cashmere, both black and colored.

We also have Cashmeres and Henriettas at

I -
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.

of being "second to nofpch establishment in

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.
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

Baying on Credit With Money in Your

engage in and which works nothing but embarrassment
and extravagance to parties who
indulgo in it. You need credit when you have

if you buy necessary goods on credit and pay
cash for luxuries, you are more than apt to
jeopardize your credit and probably work

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

they are certainly the cheapest and best goods

My Laces and Embroideries range from
2 cents per yard up and they must go.
I have just received a large lot of the celebrated
which are undoubtedly the best machines on
tho market.
A first-class Traveling Dag can be obtained

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.

Our stock is full up. Our new Plaster for
Pains in the side or back beats anything going;
it can't be equaled. Try it.
You have often made the remark if I could
only get a good knife I would buy! Now you
have a chance, for I have picked out 40 of them :
every one warranted to be the finest made, and
they are beautiful. Come and see them and if I
can't please you, I would like to know your
reason so that I may get what you want when I
go again. I haye sold some already to gentlemen
who had been waiting a long time for a
good Knife, and as soon as they saw these they
remarked, "Here at last."
Now you have talked about your Razors. I
have them?the finest I could get. We have a
two bladed Razor for $3.50?imported?that is
hard to beat. Our imported $1.50 and $2,50 get
there all the same. Now these are the best
that could be had, for I told them we wanted
only the finest, for gentlomen wanted to shave
when they started and not haye to stop and
sharpen everytime. They gave them to us.
We have them and will sell them to you?just
adding a little expenses. Try them.
Yes, I should think so. We have the finest
we could get and they are beautiful; and one
cake of our fine YORK'S FAVORITE, which
will cost you 25 cents?guaranteed to last longer
than fi ve ten cents cakes, and perfumed with
the finest odors: Heliotrope, White Violet,
Jockey Club, White Rose.
Glance at that FINE GLOSS on Mr. Happerfield's
residence and see what pure goods will
do. If you want to paint, it won't cost you a
cent to cotne and see us and get prices and
know the quality of our goods. If they don't
prove square we will paint over with anybody's
paint you may choose, or refund the money.
We guarantee the paints if you get the best.
We will give yon writing to that effect. You
can ask those who have tried good goods, or
walk down to the Methodist Parsonage?painted
3 years ago. Two coats were applied
(which painters can tell you) with some now
parts, and you will see no scaling off. Just as*
good as the day it was put on and only TWO
COATS. Is that proof? No shade trees to
protect the paint from the burning sun. The
goods tell the tale. Once paintea, needs no
more?only touching up. The green paint on
the windows, however, was not furnished by
us, but supplied by another dealer here; and
