would not part with health for money,
but that the richest would glfldly part

anxious to get a look at him and hear

ined him to be. He has an open, frank,
yet decisive, countenance, and is alto?
gether a good-looking man. He is slowly
recuperating his health, though he still
uses one crutch, which is occasioned by a
wound in the leg. His voice is weak, and

At the picnic at Neal's Creek Church
last Tuesday Mr. W. P. Holland met
with a most painful accident. In the

was one cpfcfie players, and in running
from one^base to another be came in con

Several burglaries have been committed
recently in Hopewell townships. On
Wednesday, the 6th inst. Mr. Baylis
Smith's residence was entered. His bu?
reau was broken open and some clothing
and a small tin box stolen. On the night
of that day some one entered Mr. John
Harper's residence. The thief struck a
match, which aroused some of the occu?
pants, who frightened him off before he
could secure anything. On Thursday,
7th inst, Mr. John/Hopkins' residence,
in the same neighborhood, was entered
and six dollars stolen. It is evident that
all three of these burglaries were com?
mitted by the same person or persons.
The people in that section should be on
the lookout, and give the thief or thieves
a shot-gun reception.
We are pained to record the death of
I Miss Mattie J. McGoe, which occurred at
the residence of her father, Col. Jesse P.
McGee, in Hall township, on Friday, 8th
inst., after a protracted illness from con?
sumption, from which she was confined to
j her room for the past "utr or five months.
She was a most estimable young lady,
I and was greatly admired and beloved by
all who knew her. As a member of the
First Creek Baptist Church she was a de
I voted and pious Christian. During her
'lingering illness she was patient and
I cheerful, evtacing a perfect resignation to
the decree of Heaven. Her remains
were interred in the cemetery adjoining
the Church of which she was a member
on last Saturday, after appropriate servi?
ces conducted by Rev. J. S. Murray. A
large number of the relatives and friends
of the deceased were present to pay the
last of earth's tribute to the departed one.
Little Tommy was entertaining one of
his sister's admirers in the parlor, the
other evening, until she appeared. "Don't
you come to see my sister ?" he inquired.
"Yes, Tommy, that's what I come for."
"You like her immensely, don't you?"
"Of course, I admire her very much.
Don't you think she is very nice?"
"Well, I have to, 'cause she's my sister;
but she thumps me pretty hard some?
times. But let's see you open your
mouth once. Now shut it tight till I
count ten. There?I knowed you could
do it." "Why, Tommy, who said I
couldn't?" "Oh, nobody but sister."
"Whatdid she say?" "Well, she said
you hadn't sense enough to keep your
mouth shut, and I bet two big apples you
had; and you have, haven't you? And
you'll make her stump up the apples,
won't you?*' The young man did not
wait to see whether she would "stump
up" or not.
The Municipal Election.
Very little interest was manifested in
the Municipal election last Monday. This
can be easily accounted for from the fact
that the primary election had sottled the
result of the election in advance. Out of
nearly 500 voters, only 289 registered for
this election?201 whites and 88 colored.
Of the number registered, only 178 per?
sons voted, 40 of them being colored.
The regular Democratic ticket was almost
unanimously elected, there being but
eighteen scattering ballots. The follow?

Dinner was announced after adjourn?

to partake of the bountiful fare. The
"boys" knew what to do with it, though
it was not like the camp fare they were
accustomed to twenty years ago.
A most pleasant day was spent in talk?
ing over incidents of camp life long for?
gotten. But everything comes to an end,
so it was with the veterans; the declining
sun warned them it was time to break up,

To the Voters of Anderson County.
For reasons not fully existing when I
accepted the nomination, I feel it my duty
to withdraw from the canvass for a seat
in the House of Representatives. To my
many friends I regret to make this an?
nouncement, and hope at some future time
to serve them, should a majority of my
fellow-citizens desire it. In accepting the
nomination I desired only to represent
such interests as I had in common with
my countrymen. These interests em?
brace the taxation of properfv and the
education of our children. It takes more
than half our State taxes to pay the in?
terest on our public debt. To reduce this
interest is of paramount importance in
order to reduce taxes. To this end it
will require wholesome legislation in the
administration of the government. This
would give confidence to capitalists, and
enable us to reduce the interest on the
debt from six lo, perhaps, four per cent,
a saving of one-third of the taxes for this
object. A large portion of this debt ma
tines in 1888, and the remainder in 1893,
and to replace this debt at a low rate of
interest should engage our Legislature in
Any increase of the public debt, or
weakening the resources of the State,
would defeat, in a measure, the desired
object. This will have to be met at the
next session of the General Assembly.
Spartanburg, and seven other Counties,
have involved themselves largely in
bonded debts to build railroads, and now
desire the State to come to their aid to
relieve them from their embarrassments.
The movement is being led in Spartan?
burg, and whon once begun will be taken
up by all.
Once establish the precedent of the
State assuming, either directly or indi?
rectly, the burden of these debts, impos?
ed as they are by the reckless voting of
taxes for railroad purposes, we may
never hope to reduce the present rate of !
interest; and the present rate of taxation.
A Constitutional Amendment is now on
the way to prevent the Counties from
creating any debt exceeding eight per
cent of its taxable property. If it is
wrong to exceed eight per cent, it is
wrong to exceed five. This proposition
for the State to assume the County debts,
and all kindred measures, should be met
by the Legislature with firmness, so as
to plant the credit of the State on a foot?
ing with that of our sister State of Geor?
gia, and place our debt at four percent,
as Georgia has. Then, and not before,
may we begin to look for relief from high
taxes, wftich is demanded from all quar?
ters of the State.
The State having already taken its
stand on education, she will not likely
take any step backward. I thought that
we might well have dispensed with the
Citadel Academy, leaving those who
were not satisfied with higher education
at tho University to pay t*"nr own tuition
at King's Mountain Military, or such
other like schools as they desired. The
stability of our government, the preser?
vation of our institutions, and the hap?
piness of our people depending upon the
intelligence of its citizens, it seems to me
but right that those of its citizens who
are rich in this world's goods, should
contribute of their means to educate the
children of the State, as a small return
for the rights of personal security, perso?
nal liberty, and private property guaran?
teed to them by the laws. My views on
this subject having been expressed in
private, I am requested to furnish them
for publication, which I do with diffi?
dence, as I seldom impose my views on
I the public by expressing them in print.
They are submitted now only becauso of
my withdrawal from the canvass, and the
request of those who have the right to
ask it. "With this apology Isubmit them.

To the Citizens of Anderson County: It has
been reported by some malicious person
that my administration of the County Jail
has not been correct, in that prisoners have
not been properly fed, and that prisoners
have been hired to the city council of An?
derson and thus double fees collected. Both
of these statements are entirely without a
shadow of truth to sustain them, and I am
confident that the people of Anderson
County know them to be maliciously false.
If any proof of this is needed, I think the
following affidavit of Mrs. Margaret R.
Harris, a respectable white lady, effectually
disposes of the first falsehood :
State op South Cabolika, 1
County of Anderson, j
Personally appeared before me J. E.
Breazeale, a Trial Justice in and for the
County and State aforesaid, Margaret R.
Harris, who being duly sworn, deposes and
says that she was the cook at the County
Jail during the year 1882, except the
month of August when she was absent,
and that it was during said time while she
was cooking that one James Patterson was
a prisoner, and he with all the other pris?
oners received the same kind of breads and
meats used by Sheriff McConnell and his
family, and to her own knowledge the pris?
oners were well fed and cared for.

And the following statement of the
Mayor and Chairman of the Street Com?
mittee of the City of Anderson likewise
shows the second charge to be utterly false:
Anderson, S. C, Aug. 13,1884.
J. 77. McCohncll, Sheriff Anderson County,
S. C.?-Deab Sin: In reply to your enquiry
I would say thai I have no knowledge of
yonr hiring the City Council any prisoners,
or any other hands, to work on the streets,
or for any other purpose, during my ad?
ministration as Mayor, which has been for
the past two years; and if it had have been
done I certainly would have known it, as
I approved the pay-rolls and countersigned
all checks drawn on City funds.

Another Rescue from Death.?In 1881
while sewing on a machine, my wife was
taken with a severe pain in her side, which
was soon followed by hemorrhages from
her lungs, severe cough, fever, and she
could neither eat or sleep, and in a few
weeks she was reduced to a living skeleton.
Her stomach refused to retain any food, and
the physician thought one of her lungs was
entirely gone. At a final consultation of
two physicians her case was pronounced
hopeless. I tried Brewer's Lung Restorer
by advice of one of the physicians, and she
began to improve after the third dose. She
continued the medicine, and is now in ex?
cellent health, and is better than she has
been in several years. I believe Brewer's
Lung Restorer saved her lifo.

fifty sold by us in the last ten years, and they take the day wherever introduced.

which time over 25,000 Gins have been turned out, and are in use in every Cot?
ton growing State of the Union, Mexico, South America and the British East Indies.
The Gins are more simple, less complicated and less liable to get out of order, strong?
er and more substantial than any Gin now offered; and being so well known to the
Farmer and Public Ginner in this and the surrounding Counties, that we feel it unneces?
sary to give lengthy testimonials and references.
We are prepared to fill all orders promptly, and as there is always a rush in the lat?
ter part of the season, we would suggest that you give us your order at once, to insure
prompt delivery. Our prices are as low as a first-class Gin can be sold, and our terms
are as favorable as auy purchaser could desire. Every Giu, Feeder and Condenser is
guaranteed to give full satisfaction before payment for same is required.

will take great pleasure in giving all necessary information and references to parties who
