Blacksbubg, November 4.?The delay in the train of the Three C's railroad on Saturday last, was caused by the following; train of incidents: D. R. Bird, a merchant atGrover, N. C., having some acconnts against certain employees of the Three C's road, had them reduced to judgments, and R. J. Balfour, a magistrate at Grover, issued executions against the defendants. Attachments were issued, and the railroad agent at Earle'S was garnisheed. Superintendent Jno. F. Jones, in his return to the process, admitted that the company owed the defendants, and thatas soon as they were paid off he would turn over the money due said defendants to the magistrate. The magistrate became impatient of the law's delay and went to Earle's station on Thursday, and attempted to levy on the passenger train, worth over $40,000, to satisfy judgments aggregating not over $35. He showed his executions to Engineer Hammersly, who told Balfour that be would have to go on with his train to make connection at Blacksburg, with other trains, as he had on board passengers and the U. S. mail, and that if he was obliged to levv on anything, to levy on the company's several cars of steel rails that were then standing at Earl's, on the side track. Balfour allowed the train to proceed that day, but bad warrants issued for the arrest of Hammersly and Ramseur, the engineer and con ? ? TT * J ductor ortbe trajn, ana ueorge aunt huu ?j uuu Hambright were deputized to serve the warrants. On the arrival of the train at Earle's on Saturday, the 1st instant, they were there with a posse of eight or ten men, with shotguns and pistols, and all apparently under the influence of liquor. They dragged the fireman out of tbe engine in a violent manner, tearing bis clothing, and seized Conductor Ramseur in the collar, and jerked him around roughly, treating him very ungentlemanly. The deputies "also pointed their cocked pistols at the brakemen, who were on top of tbe cars, and threatened to shoot them off, if they moved. After a delay of an hour and fifteen minutes, tbe conductor and engineer were permitted to give bond for their appearance before the magistrate, R. J. Balfour, at Grover, on the 5th instant Hambright, one of the deputies, took the train he had been instrumental in detaining, left the State, and came to Blacksburg. A warrant was issued for his arrest charging him with assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature, for false arrests and delaying the U. S. mail for an hour and fifteen minutes. He gave bond for his appearance at the next term of the superior court to beheld at Shelby, North Carolina. A warrant, containing similar charges, has also been issued for the arrest of George Hunt, the other deputy, engaged in this unfortunate and outrageous affair. Col. R. A. Johnson, with his party, arrived here yesterday, from their trip over the line of the Three C's road, into Virginia, Tennessee and North Carolina. He was accompanied by I)r. J. G. Black. Mr. A. Urquhartand George Frick. Tbey report excellent progress all along the line of the road, and there is no doubt that the financial standing of the company is better now than it ever has been. Mr. Noah Hardin, a prominent and respected citizen, and brother of our townsman, Mr. Ira Hardin, died suddenly last night, at his home, near this place, aged about 70 years. He was an honest, upright man, a kind and obliging neighbor, noted for his ever ready and skillful ministrations to the sick, an affectionate and exemplary husband and father, and indeed, in all relations of life, his one aim seemed to be to do his duty faithfully and well. He will be sadly missed in his immediate neighborhood. Mrs. W. A. Jackins arrived home on Saturday, from Lawrenceville, Ga. Mrs. M. E. Deal is visiting her sister, Mrs. Kussell, at Sharon. The election is progressing very quietly, and there seems to be a pretty good turn out. , w. A. LETTER FROM CLOVER. Correspondence of The Yorkville Enquirer. Cloves, November 4.?I learn from a private lotter that Mr. R. A. Matthews, who was raised noor imrfl and who was in business at this place for several years, has located at Hartsville, S. C., and will make that his future home. Dick is a good citizen and we regret to lose him. W. P. Smith and J. B. Ford, students of the Gaffney City school, and H. L. Wright, of the Rock Hill school, were at home a few days last week on a visit, returning to their respective schools on yesterday. There is some sickness in and around Clover now. Several cases of some kind of slow fever. Mr. W. M. Matthews, his wife and one child, are all confined to their beds with it, and haye been for about three weeks. Our school is still in a flourishing condition, and as an evidence of the faithfulness of the teacher and the progress of the children, one little boy,'about ten years old, last week, on a review of geography, went all around the world, telling of all the oceans, seas, bays, gulfs, sounds, straits, channels, continents, divisions and all, and never made a single mistake. The little fellow seemed to be proud of bis success and told his parents be thought he ought to have a nickle. He got it. Some days ago a gentleman rode into Clover, driving a nice horse, a new buggy and harness, and tied his horse to a post in front of Barron tfc Wright's store, without unhitching from the buggy. Shortly a freight train came rolling in. The horse showed very little uneasiness as long as he could see it, but he had on a blind bridle, and when the train got behind him where he could not see it, he began to jump and pitch and charge around at a fearful rate. . We expected to see the whole thing torn to pieces and the horse frightened away, but as soon as be got turned around far enough to see what was going on, he became perfectly quiet. This is a case to the point. We have been contending for a long time that there should be no such thing as a blind bridle. That means a bridle with great ilaps of leather fastened about the horse's eyes to keep him from seeing what is going on around him. If the horse above referred to had not had that blind on his bridle, I don't believe he would have moved out of his tracks. I felt like walking right up to him and cutting those blinds off without permission. The idea! I guess horse nature is about the same as man nature; and I know when I hear any unusual sound that is in-theleastalarming, my 'irat impulse is to see what it is. I think that is just exactly the case with every one. And 1! think it is just exactly the same with thehorse. Then, I would'say* cut off all those hateful blinds, but go slow about it, for it is said "you can't learn old horses (or something else) new tricks," as some have been broken in that way that mtght not like the other so well. Perhaps it would do to cut off one side at a time ana risk one eye on it. Cut off those blinds! j. d. o. LETTER FROM CHESTER. Correspondence of The YorkviUe Enquirer.

For The Yorkville Enquirer. Editor of The Enquirer: Please publish the following statement: My vote on the complaint against Charleston presbytery, and those of many other members of Synoa, were not intended (o endorse or apDrove the reasons given for rejecting Dr. Woodrow as a regular member, but simply to express tho conviction that the application should not be forced upon that body under the circumstances. He is a minister in good standing as to character, piety and zeal for the cause of Christ, and would no doubt be gladly received into any other presbytery of our church. Rock Hill, November 8. J. S.

Below will be found the opinio n of Mr. Felix H. Dover in regard to the Corbin Harrow. Mr. Dover IS one 01 tnemosisuccesaiuiiaruierB of bis section, and has perhaps put the Corbin Harrow to more tests than any other farmer in York county. Read what he says about it: Grover, n. C., July 10, 1889. I have owned a 16-inch 12 disk Corbin Harrow for the past four years and have put it to every possible test ana it has given entire satisfation. I had long felt the need of a harrow that would pulverize the soil thoroughly from four to six inches deep, and realized that this could not be done by any drag or tooth harrow, for they only pulverize the surface, leaving many clods or lumps untouched, and these clods would be worked to the surface in cultivating the crop; and all intelligent farmers know that cloady land does not give the best results. Hence the great importance of a harrow that will pulverize the soil as deep as the plow goes. My harrow will thoroughly pulverize to a depth of seven inches. I want nothing better in stalk land in putting in wheat or oats than the Corbin Harrow, for it not only does better work than a plow, but is so much faster, cutting six feet at a time, and all farmers know the importance of saving time at the season when these crops are usually sown. I venture the assertion that no farmer who owns a Corbin Harrow would be without it for twice its cost. Two great advantages the harrow possesses over most improved farming implements is its simplicity and durability. Any sleepy headed free negro can operate it if he has sense enough to arive a wagon. I have prepared stubble land for planting, where there were no rocks or stumps, with my harrow, by harrowing it twico, crossing the first work with the last, as well or better than I have ever done with a plow. Much more might be said about the Corbiu Harrow but I think I have said enough to induce farmers to inquire into its merits. All who investigate will be converted. Very Respectfully, Felix H. Dover. November 5 45 tf Certificate or Warranty of the Chicago Singer Sewing Machine. We hereby warrant the ordinary wear and tear of the Chicago Singer Sewing Machine No. Go,712 for the term of five j from the date of the sale thereof, and if any ?><t of said machine gives out by reason of any C^^ect therein, we agree to replace the same free of charge. This warranty does not coyer accidental breakage, nor the wear of Shuttles. Bobbins and Needles. Chicago Sewing Machine Co. Chicago, 111., September 27,1890. The above is a correct copy of the registered warranty sent by the manufacturers of the Chicago Singer Sewing Machine to the purchaser of Machine No. 65,712, which was recently ordered by us to be se.it to one of our subscribers, and a similar warranty accompanies every machine sent out. The Corbin Marrow as iieen Through Mr. B. E. Guthrie's Spectacles. Mr. Robert E. Guthrie, of Guthriesville, is one of York county's most enterprising and successful fanners. He is thoroughly practical, and it does not take him long to see the business side of a question, and for this reason the following testimonial from him in regard to the value of the Corbin Disk Harrow is pos sessed of peculiar value: Uuthriesviule, S, C., July 5, 1889. I have a Corbin Disk Harrow which I have been using for several years, and consider it the most valuable farming implementof which 1 have any knowledge. I uue my Disk Harrow in sowing all of my small grain, and it does the work better than any implement I have ever used. Land that has been cultivated in cotton or corn, may be sown without any preparation whatever, and an ordinary hana, with two mules, can sow and cover six to eight acres in a dav. All that is uocessary is to sow the seed on the ground, and .ben run the Harrow over it one time; but better results will be obtained if the Harrow is run over the ground two or three times. As a time and money saver, aside from the superior quality of work it does, its value can hardly be estimated at the seasons at which the small grain is sown. The Harrow is very useful in pulverizing rough plowed land of any kind, especially bottoms, and it will pay any farmer to use one. Unlike the ordinary tooth or Acme harrow, it not only pulverizes the surface, but will pulverize to the depth to which the plow has gone and often deeper. It can be used to advantage on land that is too wet to plow, without injury to the land. There should, in my opinion, be a Di6k Harrow on every well regulated farm, and in my opinion no harrow yet introduced is equal to the Corbin in simplicity, durability and thoroughness of work. Respectfully, R. E. Guthrie. October 8 41 tf 945.00 Tor 9116.00. We now have on exhibition at The Enquirer office a Chicago Singer Sewing Machine, ; and will be pleased to have persons who are i thinking of buying a sewing machine to call and examine it. Remember that for $1?J we will have one of those machines delivered on board the cars in Chicago and send you The Enquirer for one year wit! out further charge, except the freight on the machine, which is about 81.50.

It has been our pleasure and privilege for the past two years to practically control the DRUG BUSINESS TRIBUTARY TO THIS MARKET, and as the busy season approaches, and with our increased facilities for handling the lion's share of the drug business, we cordially invite our friends to call on us when they are in the city, and make themselves at home. We have recently added to our store fixtures the most beautiful and most convenient Prescription Counter Ever brought into the State, and it certainly is the most beautiful piece of store furniture ever brought to this section. We did not buy it because it was stylish, but we bought it in order that we might be better prepared to wait on our daily growing business, which is being drawu from the very best people in tbe Piedmont section. Through the mails and by express we do business, and with all classes and conditions of mankind, and the reputation and reliability of our house for ACCURACY IN FILLING PRESCRIPTIONS IS GROWING EVERY HOUR! No establishment in York county, no matter in what business it is engaged, strives harder TO GAIN PUBLIC FAVOR Than we; and while the road to success, in any business, is rough and crooked and hard to travel, we have accomplished much and we are determined to accomplish much more. Consider the disadvantage under which we arose and the high and exalted position we now hold, against old established businesses with creditand cash to back them; with prestige, and influential friends to give them strength and vigor, and it will not require a Solomon to point out the hundreds of crushed obstacles which laid in our path. But we are not now working in the past. It is the present ||d for the future. It is' our friends to whoriPtore look for patronage, and it is from them that we get it. We liaye enmity at no man, and we expect to continue our hnniriAfla r?n thn Merit and the Reputation Won by care, judgment and experience. Our Tinctures ana Drugs ere always pure, and we compound prescriptions as cheaply as the ingredients will admit of. During the past year, aside from Faints and Oils, our Drug business has grown wonderfully. We are selling goods to customers who did not deign to darken our doors ; bat they have by experience learned where to buy their medicines, and they now declare that they are with us, henceforth and forevermore, simply because they like our fair, square and consistent treatment of all men. PATENT MEDICINES. Talk about Patent Medicines and we are with von. We keeD them. We sell them. We car ry everything of any note from Winslow'a Soothing Syrup up to Fellow's Hypophosphite. In fact, we keep everv Patent Medicine, Pill and Compound manufactured in this country, provided it has enough merit to make a demand. We have the Black Compound Cathartic Pills, which is the oury reliable black pill manufactured in the United States. We have Radwav's Pills, and Cook's, and Tutt's, and more tbanone thousand other kinds. This Can't be Painted Out! Only a short while ago we accepted the agency for the ECKSTINE WHITE LEAD, and we commenced calling the attention of the public to that meritorious article through thiB paper, and it has about supplanted all other grades and qualities of Leads and Paints, and its durability is a positive assurance. Look at the priming of L. Geo. Grist's residence?just one coat remember?and put there a year ago, and ask him what he thinks about it. It is cheaper, better, more durable than any paint ever brought to this market?a fact that other paints can't cover up ; ana me cuiup?uty wutivi?ue this brand or paint is iust as good for their obligations as the Bank of England is for a ginger snap, and they otfer an ounce of gold for every ounce of adulteration therein con, tained.

You had better sow a big wheat crop, for you will need it next year, or the prophets have become mixed. J. H RIDDLE. SOLID FACTS. IT makes no difference to the purchaser of a Piano or Organ, bow the dealer buys his instruments, just so he sells them right. I get my instruments both f FOR CASH AND ON CONSIGNMENT. I also get as good discounts as large dealers, and I give the purchaser the benefit of them. My profits are not from 830.00 to 850.00 ou an Organ, and 875.00 to $150.00 on a Piano, as nearly all other agents make. The buyer of a PIANO OR ORGAN Has all the expenses of a dealer to pay, such as traveling expenses, fancy clerks, professors, Ac. I don't have that to charge upon my instruments. IF YOU WANT TO SAVE MONEY, A nd get a guaranteed instrument, come and see nioand the Opera Piano, the Lester Piano, and the Wilcox A White Organ, before you buy. I Will Not Be Undersold. GEORGE T.
