bles from Liverpool and good news
from southern spot markets. A large number of foreigu buyiug orders seut local shorts under cover with a rush and induced the more courageous bulls to aggressively follow up the advantage afforded by the cables. The bulk of the business was done for English l account represented undoing of stradk dies. Private advices stated that prospect of British successes in South Africa and the absolute indifference of southern holders to overtures for concessions from exporters, had stirred up . European shorts and spinners who for W sometime past have been regarding "* the statistical situation with increasing apprehension. Liverpool derived most of its strength from buying orders from that quarter. The outside publio was not a buyer of consequence in the local market; in fact, a considerable portion of cotton furnished to shorts and Europe came from investors. Receipts were light with every promise pointing to no change in this ' respect for some time to come. LOCAL LACONICS. ^ Postmaster at Rock Hill. The president has appointed Mr. A. J.

' The county commissioners were in session during Tuesday aud up to a late hour Tuesday nigbt, selecting names for the jury boxes to be used during the present year. They put in a good portion of Wednesday auditing accounts, and during the day disposed of everything under consideration. ( On Thursday they were entertained at dinner by Superintendent Gauldin, of the County Home. - / Mining; Operations. A company of northerners have resumed work on the Magnolia mine, in Broad River township. They have an option for the purchase of the proper> ty for $15,000, and it is understood that this option expires in May. Mr. Fred Frank is very well pleased with bis developments in Broad River town ship, and in addition to his work there, has undertaken to exploit the old Ferguson mine, near King's Mountain Battle ground. % The ChalugaDg. The chaingang is still located in Broad River township, and will be there for about two months' yet. The operations are confined principally to drainage, the throwing up of roadbeds, and the improvement of rough hills. After leaving Broad River township, the understanding is that the gang will go to King's Mountain township, next to Fort Mill, and then again to Catawba. Some good macadam work was done in Bullock's Creek township; but owing to the failure of the people to haul enough rock, there are about ^ 200 yards of naked mud between two long stretches of macadam. When a heavily ioadea wagon strides this in bad weather, it is like coming to a river across which there is no bridge. Baby Id a Well. Rock Hill correspondence Columhia State: At about noon Thursday, a * colored girl, drawing water from a well in a vacant lot in the rear of the Presbyterian church, found a bag caught on the bucket when it was drawn up. She called a passerby, and upon examination found the contents of the bag to be a bright mulatto child. A coroner's jury took evidence at the inquest, but adjourned without a verdict until next Monday, to allow investigation. The police are at work and have already found a clue, which they will pursue. There is considerable talk of the affair, the most serious aspect of which, in the opinion of the public, is the contamination of the water of a public drinking place. Caught In the Fly Wheel. Just as the big engine out at the York Cotton mills was being started last Monday morning, one of the cats which has been looking after the mice in the establishment tried to iiimn between the spokes, from one side of the wheel to the other. The cat missed her calculations, however, and alighted on one of the spokes. Hesitating about getting off the spoke instantly, she was carried around with the wheel, and by the time the revolution was completed, she had lost her opportunity. The centrifugal force threw her against the rim of the wheel and her fate was settled. Of course the mill, having started, was not to he stopped on account of a cat, and it was not till noon that puss was rescued. Report has it there was not a whole bone in her body and that she was as flat as a door mat. Goue Into Bankruptcy. Mr. J. J. Hunter, one of Yorkville's best known dry goods merchants, filed a petition in bankruptcy last Wednes| day night, and since then his business has been closed. Mr. Hunter has been pursuing a cash system entirely, not having sufficient capital with which to do a credit business, aud the bankruptcy proceedings are the result, purely and simply, of the business stagnation ^ in his line caused by the short crops. At the time he finally decided to file the bankruptcy petitiou, he had new goods on the road, previously ordered, but uot paid for. These be took steps to have returned to the consignors, to whom, under the circumstances, they, of course, rightly belong. There be ing do important accounts outstand ing, Mr. Hunter's assets consist prin cipally of the stock of goods on hand His liabilities are principally account: north, and although it cannot now b< definitely sated, it is quite likely thai the creditors will get something Iik< 75 cents on the dollar. Mr. Hunter': failure was the occasion of surpris: and regret to his numerous friends and the news will no doubt be receivec with surprise and regret by the gener al public. Mr. Hunter is, of course entirely at sea as to future plans. SOUTH CAROLINA NEWS. Dr. Carlisle Will Resign. Dr. James H.

High Manuring Experiment. News and Courier: Mr. C. L. Burnett, of tbe historic Cowpen's district, our Spantanburg correspondent reports, made a very interesting experiment in intensive farming, or "high manuring" last year, with instructive results. He put a little more than eight sacks of "tbe guano," costing altogether, $17, broadcast on one and one-eighth acres, which had been sub-soiled, and obtained from tbe tract cotton and seed worth $59.69. Deducting expenses the "net result" wat $30.19. On a two-acre lot he spread 13 sacks "of guano," costing $24.70. Tbe cotton and seed brought $100; - - ? KA . me toiai expense was fuu.uu , luu u?i profit was $49.50. Dismissed In Disgrace. Washington correspondence of The News and Courier : It was announced at the navy department Wednesday, that Cadet J. F. Maxwell, ol South Caroliaa, has been dishonorably dismissed from the naval academy at Annapolis. This is the result of the inquiry into the Christmas trouble at Annapolis, in which young Maxwell figured. At first the cadet claimed that he was not an active participant in the episode which led to bis investigation, and it was his effort to get at the botton of the trouble tbat led to the controversy which Congressman Latimer bad with Admiral McNair, the commandant of the academy. Later, however, Maxwell acknowledged fuller complicity in the affair than he did at first and the result is his dismissal. Mormons at Due West. Associate Reformed Presbyterian: Our community was favored a few days ago with a visit from two Mormon missionaries who were anxious to convert us from the errors of our ways into the true faith. They did not stay long. Perhaps this does not seem a very promising field to cultivate. They could get no place in which tc rtroank hut diotrihutoH cnmp r?f thpir literature. Their confession of faith is very much after the order of a baited fish hook. There is notbiDg immoral iu it. A good deal of it is Scripture, There is not the remotest reference tc polygamy. They believe in virtue aud purity and everything of thai kind. But the fish line is there, They believe the Book of Mormon tc be the Word of God equally with the Bible, and also believe in revelations yet to be made. What those revelations will be we may judge from those that have been made to Joseph Smith, Brigbam Young, and others. When one swallows that article of their creed, he is like a fish that has swallowed a book. He can be drawn anywhere. Mormonism is Mormonism just as really when it is coated over with Scrip ture as when it is seen in all its nakedness. Europeans Helping the Boers.? So many French officers have resigned their commissions to go to the aid oi the Boers, says a Paris dispatch, that the government is considering means of putting a stop to this sentiment for war that has developed rapidly. So far 211 men have given up places in the French service aud taken service with the Boers. To Colonel De Villebois-Mareull, chief of staff to General Joubert, has been credited all along the victory of Colenso, and now it is practically certain that General Drailmont, one of the cleverest of the Belgian engineers, laid out before the war started several campaigns that could be adapted to suit the exigences of the situation. There is also good basis for saying that the Boers have plenty of ammunition, having had 100,000,000 rounds when war was declared. Of the supply not more than 30,000,000 rouuds have been used. The Attack on Ladysmith.?A London dispatch of January 8, says that mail advices have been received of the Boer attack on Ladysmith on January 6. The attack seems to have been made on two widely separated points at the same time, and to a large extent was a successful surprise. The British outposts were driven back ; but just about that time the artillery began to get in it its work and the Boers were unable to briug up their reserves on account o! the fierce storm of shrapnel that was hurled against them. Two compauies of Gordon Highlanders were captured by the Boers. The fighting of the Boers is described as heroic. Tht losses were quite heavy on both sides: but no figures were given. Should Be More Specific.?A bill has beeu introduced into both branch es of the general assembly which declares "that from and after the lsl day of May, 1900, no child uuder tin age of 12 years, shall be employed ir any factory, mine or other manufacturing establishment in this state." Il would be well to more cleijrly define "manufacturing establishment" before this becomes a Jaw, unless it is intend . ed to keep children under 12 years of I . age from doing almost any sort of I work.

ON January 1, 1900, the Mutual Benefit Life Insurance was 55 years old, and it set up a milestone at this point on its long and honorable career that is calculated to impress the American people with the fact that it has attained a position in the science of Life Insurance that no competition will attempt to dispute. We refer to the new policies that the company authorized its agents to offer on and after January 1. Tbey are, without exception, the fairest, most equitable contracts ever yet offered those who desire to protect their wives, children or estates, or to lay by a competency for old age. The Record of the Company For the past 55 year, together with the unequalled liberality of its Policy con tracts and its unsurpassed and unsurpassable reputation for fair and honorable dealings with its members, proves that the Mutual Benefit furnishes the best Lite Insurance at the lowest cost price. I will be pleased to furnish any desired information about the company, its contracts or rates. SAM M. GRIST, Agent, Yorkville, S. C. A. Y. CARTWRIGHT, Surgeon Dentist. YORKVILLE, S. C.
