Disease Among the Cattle.
Greenville News: A mysterious disease

Rock Hill and Old Point. Prof. Wyman,

A Handsome Store Building.
The Ganson Dry Goods company is now
moving into its handsome new storeroom,
on the corner of Congrecsand Liberty
streets. The room is one of the
largest and best arranged in the upper
part of the state, and it is being filled
with goods from top to bottom and from
end to end. Mr. M. F. Jones, secretary
of the company and manager of the Yorkville
branch, will occupy rooms above
the store with his family.

More Sensible. S
The bad precedent recently established d
by a majority of the town council in giv- c
ing up a public sidewalk for private con- i
venience, has been rectified by a little c
common sense. Upon suggestion of War I
den Parish, the steps up the side of the 1
Nichols building have been torn away t
and, instead, a portico has been built from a
the second floor so as to extend over the p
sidewalk, and this is reached by steps s
running up from the gutter on either side.
By this arrangement, the sidewalk is left
free and the entrance to the upper floor is
safer and more convenient. The only
space consumed is that over the gutter. 1

The present town council says it will
not levy more than 20 cents on the 3100. <
Yes; that is right, for that is the extreme
limit allowed by the charter under which t
it is operating. But when the present L

Honest, Anyway.
The reason given by Warden Parish
for wanting a new charter, is the only ?
tenable yet advanced. It is straightforward
and honest. He wants ?2,000 with "
? which to work ou the streets, and purpo- A
ses to raise it by increasing the tax levy. 8
But then, unfortunately for the position ^
of Warden Parish, he is entirely alone. ?
Though the method he proposes is the 11
only way by which the money can be *
raised, Inteudaut Lowry, and Wardens
Moore and McElwee have said that they ;
will not agree to any more than the pres- *
ent levy of two mills, and so Mr. Parish's
scheme won't go. 1
Who Mh(I? the Debt ? [
Inteudant Lowry gives as a reason for f
the present financial strait of the town, a
the fact that, when the present council t
.came into office, it inherited a debt of t
$1,4S0. Maybe so; but who made that v
debt ? The administration of Intendant c
O'Leary, a few years ago, was devoted t
principally to the paymeut of the debts of c
the former administrations, and when it v
went out of office it lelt due not exceed- e
ing ?400. This was the 29th of March, u
10s*n oiiivJW umi ume, WUU IUC cAtcpuuu j
of Mr. Moore, who was off last year, j
Messrs. Lowry, McElwee aud Moore j
have continuously been members of the t
town council. This is the second term c
for Mr. Parish. So if a debt has been in- ^
herited, at least $1,080 of it was inherited t
from a majority of the present council. r
The Broken WuKlipot .Monument.
The broken washpot monument refer- I
red to by Mr. O'Leary in the town meet- 1
* ing the other night, is located at the cor- 1
? ner ot Congress and Madison street; but e
it is not doing business now. The water >
has beeu cut off for some two months or 1
more. Just why nobody seems to know. I
There is a livery stable near by and also f
several private families who have cows *
and horses. These used to get water free, c
The fee of the town for watering cows 1
and horses on the premises of their own- 1
ers is 25 cents a head per quarter, and i
the washpot monument, therefore, was of l
great convenience to those who were in t
reach of it. An effort was made to get the t
livery stable man to take water on his
premises for the use of his stock; but a
with the monument so close, he did not a
see tit to incur the expense. All at once i
;he free flow at the fountain was stopped,
uid some of those who were inconvenienced,
thought it was a bint that they
jhould get their supplies from the town
ind pay for the same. But this theory
ivould not do, for free water is still being
furnished elsewhere. The only reason
fiven for stopping the flow of water at
he broken washpot monument, was a
ear that the constant dripping of the
>vaste water might kill a shade tree?a

A case of highway robbery is reported
:o have occurred on the streets of Yorkrille
last Wednesda> night. The victim
ivas Mr. D. A. Wiiittaker an aged white
nan. While walking along Madison
itreet near its intersection with congress
street, shortly after dark, he was sudienly
attacked by two Negro women.
Dneof them seized his arms and held him
ast, while the other went through his
pockets, and took therefrom what money
le had?91.75. As soon as they got the
noney the women released their victim
ind ran away. Mr. Whittakeratonce rejorted
the matter to Polieceman Rose and
that official hastened to make all possible
nvestigation without result. Mr. Whitaker
is a drinking man ; but on this occasion
was not under the influence of
Divided Into Wards.
According to Major Hart, the most deiirable
feature of the general incorporaion
act is that which provides for the
livision of the town into wards. That
>eing the case, the major has no immeliate
occasion for further worry. The
own is now divided into wards for the
nirposes of the board of health, and albough
four members of the board of
lealtb?Dr. W. G. White and Messrs.
Tohn M. Hope, T. W. Clawson and R. B.
LiOwry?are living in two wards, the disribution
of the councilmen is rather beter.
For instance, that portion of town
ibove the intersection of King's Mounain
and Charlotte streets is Ward 1, and in
t resides Warden McElwee. The section
roin there down, to Madison street, contitutes
Ward 2, and in it resides Warden
doore. The next section, down to Liberty
street, constitutes Ward 3, and in it
esides Warden Parish. The next secion,
down to Jefferson street, constitutes
Ward 4, and in it resides Intendant Low y
; and the next section, from Jefferson
treet south, in which resides Warden
5ropst, constitutes Ward 5. It just hap)ened
that way, of course; but since it so
tands, where is the need for any immeliate
change ? In the case of the board
if health, the law requires one member
n each ward ; but in the case of the town
ouncil there is no such requirement.
!t seems therefore that where there is a
aw to govern, it is not followed, while
be people are already doing of their own
ccord that which the major would com?el
them to do by law. Good lawyers
ometimes talk funny, don't they ?

Blacksburo, September 10.?The first ]
>ale of cotton sold in this market was i
irought in by Mr. Clayton Byars, on I
Tuesday, the 7th instant. It was bought [
iy Mr. J. W. Duff at 8 cents a pound, i
iinee then quite a quantity has been
irought in, and the staple is opening very
ust; but the promise of a large crop has
icen dissipated by the cool, dry weath- '
r which suddenly came on us about ten
lays ago.
On Friday last, a called meeting of the
lirectors of the Blacksburg Land and
mprovemeut company was held at i
Cherokee Inn. There were present, Presient

Wednesday morning, Flagman T. J.
Jaber, of freight train No. 34, of the O.

lis usual "run" to Camden. In about
wo hours his mangled corpse was
irought back on a special car sent by Sulerintendent
Tripp to the place of the
lilling, near Hopewell church, about four
niles from Blacksburg. Magistrate A.
>1. Bridges, acting as coroner, immeditely
summoned a jury and held an in[uest
over the body. The only witnesses
fere three Negroes; two, who werestandng

man falling between the catoose
and a ilat car just in front, and

and when Conductor H. S. McLure

uarriage of Miss Lillian Alexander, of
Shelby, to Mr. Edward F. Dougherty, of t

Everything but Demand For Gondii, Points
to a Rise. 1
The Atlanta Constitution. *
According to tbe views of men
whose experience entitles them to be
called experts, the statistical position t
of cotton is stronger today than it has I
been for many years. In fact, there
seems to be no conceivable reason
why there should not be a marked ad- {
vance in tbe price. d
In the first week of the present cotton
year the visible supply decreased,
an event that is without parallel. The _
surplus has been almost entirely consumed.
At the same period in 1895
the visible supply of American cotton y
was more than 2,000,000 bales. At c
present the supply in sight falls short r
of a million bales. r
The stock held in Europe must be
comparatively small, for all of the new
cotton in sight and some of the old
surplus was absorbed last week. The
American cotton mills are buying from 0
hand to mouth, as the saying is, in t
their efforts to raise prices; but it s
seems to us, in the very nature of *
things, that such eflorts must prove c
* ? 151 1 ? 4.1
truitless it, as now seems liaeiy, uuere r
is an enhanced demand for cotton h
goods. J
Moreover, the free movement of the n
crop from Texas, Louisiana and a part 1
of Mississippi is bound to ^ material- c
ly interferred with by the yellow fever ?
quarantine regulations, which will be a
kept up until cold weather. 1
There is, therefore, no reason why ?
the price of cotton should not show an
early and a very material advance.
The only thing that will prevent will
be the lack of an increased demand
for cotton goods. Many of the eastern
mills still have large stocks of unsold
goods on hand, and some of these have
been added to by the anticipa- ^
tion of higher prices caused by the ^
tariff. Thus far, cotton goods have y
made no material response to tariff ~
legislation nor to the increased and
increasing symptoms of prosperity. "I
When the respouse does come, The J
Constitution hopes and believes that
the price of the southern staple will a
rise. ?
All the conditions, except the demand
for cotton goods, justify the rise, C)
aud if the symptoms of prosperity are ?
as substantial as they now seem to be, tl
this demand is sure to come and that ^
within a very short time. The pros- c
perity of the south depends in a great
measure on the cotton crop, and we
believe that a due share of the im- provement
visible in other lines will
make itself felt in the cotton market. J
Charleston Klondike .
Columbia Register: A. S. Emerson e]
has just returned from the north
where he went to make arrangements P
to purchase a steamer to carry his ^
expedition to the Klondike gold coun- a]
try. Mr. Emerson expects to carry a pi
party of 300 to Alaska. The trip will ir
be made in the early part of next ^
spring, the vessel leaving here about k
the middle of February. It will take 01
about 60 days to make the trip ant! ^
the party will arrive at Dawson City C(
just at the right time. While north j
Mr. Emerson inspected several vessels n
and made an offer on one which he ei
thought was best suited. The steamship
which Mr. Emerson picked out is owned
by a company, the directors of f|
which have not yet decided whether
they will accept the offer or not.
Should the offer be accepted Mr. Em- {
erson will go north again and clinch p
the bargain. I
Enjoined the Preacher. ?
Union correspondence of the Colum- t
bia State : There was rather a novel
proceeding had before Judge D. A.
Townsend here last Tuesday to make I!
perpetual a temporary injunction, ti
which enjoined one Choice H. Lee
from any longer filling the position of
pastor of Wyatt'9 chapel or any other
church. It seems that sometime ugo
a possible majority of the members of
Wyatt's chapel resolved themselves
into a court, tried Choice H. Lee, and
expelled him. As usual, he had a O
following, while he was not the choice
of many. He aud his followers established
another church, erected a
church edifice, and he became their pastor
and continued to preach. All
of this seems to be regarded by the Wyatt
chapel congregation as illegal. ?
He having been expelled, is not regarded
a member of the church ; there- 1
fore, has no right to preach the gospel, ^
Therefore the injunction. At the 25
heariug before Judge Townsend on ~
Tuesday, the plaintiff complainants
were represented by Attorneys B. I.

The complaint was quite voluminous, th
The substance of the allegations was
lhat Choice H. Lee had, by his unbe- \
coming conduct, become a thorn in Hi
the side of the body politic, a source
of tumult and cause of strife; that ?
doubtless if he were allowed to con- '
tiuue in the work he would cause J
bloodshed. J. A. Sawyer, Esq., of the hi
law firm of Hydrick & Sawyer, repre- a
seated the defendant, respondent. His ;[j
return to the rule seemed complete. ^
He set out the fact that every Baptist a
church was separate, distinct and independent,
not subject to any other _
church. Every church controlled its
own affairs. That a person could be H
called as pastor and preach whether a tj
member of the church or not. That ?
therefore this action by the Wyatt V
chapel congregation was null and P;
void. That this court has no jurisdiction.

icular case seeras to have no preceleut,

lUthoriiies were quoted. Decisions

THERE is little doubt but that the day
is uot far distant, when the superiority
of the BABCOCK and SAYER &
SCOVILL BUGGIES will be thoroughly
appreciated by the intelligent buyers of
this section. The Babcock is a different
style buggy than our people have been
accustomed to, hence the sales here have
not yet been so numerous as the merits of
the buggy entitle it and which are made
in sections where it is known better.
Doctors and Liverymen, as a rule, buy
the best buggy on the market. The latter
class usually buy one buggy to start
with, and if it proves satisfactory, buy
more. That's the way they did at Gasd.vaL
