"Mrs. Lucinda Watkihs, the beloved
wife of Mr. W. C. -Watkins, died at her
home in Garvin Township, on Tuesday,
2nd inst., after a painful illness of several
weeks, aged" about 55 years. Mrs. Wat

Our Holland's Store correspondent an?
nounces the death of Mrs. W. A. Holland,
which occurred last Saturday night, after
a long and painful illness. Her remains
were carried to Seneca on Monday for in?

daughter of the late Mr. W.L. Broyles,
of Fork Township; and was a most excel?
lent young woman. Her death is deeply
regretted-by a host of friends, who sym?
pathize with the bereaved husband and the
little ones who are left to mourn her
Our clever old friend, Col. W. S. Pick
ens, of Brushy Creek, gave us a pleasant
call Monday. The Colonel has been a
subscriber to the Intelligencer ever
since its existence, and never fails to
make the heart of the printer glad once a
year. Anderson County has no better cit?
izen or farmer than he. For forty-three
years he has been a tiller of the soil, and
during that time ho has produced only
thirteen bales of cotton. He plants and
raises everything else that his land will
produce, and has prospered by it.
Mr. Joe. Ferguson, of Savannah Town?
ship, while on his way to the city last
Saturday came near losing four bales of
cotton. The cotton was piled upon a two
horse wagon, and Mr. Ferguson con?
cluded while driving along he would
i.njoy a smoke. He took his pipe, filled it
with tobacco and lighted it by striking a
match on a cotton tie. He began smok?
ing, and in a few seconds be was almost
enveloped in a flame. As soon as possi?
ble he threw the cotton off the wagon and j
soon succeeded in extinguishing the fire, )
but not before his cotton was badly dam?
Mr. John T. Martin, of Martin Town?
ship, came near losing a team of fine
mules one night last week at Carpenter &
Geer'silill. The team was in charge of
two young boys, and in crossing the
bridge over the mill-pond, the mules
became frightened and backed the wagon
off of the bridge into the pond. In the
wagon was a lot of provisions, consisting
of a barrel of floor, bacon, sugar, rice, etc.,
and some clothing, all of which was lost
or damaged. The wagon was badly dam?
aged. By lotting off the'pond the mules
were saved. The young men got a good
wetting, bnt none were hurt.
Married, at the residence of the bride's
father, Mr. Jas. M. Lattimer, at Lowndes
ville, S. C, on Tuesday morning, October
l?th, 1888, at 10 o'clock, by Rev. W.
Smith Martin, Capt.-Tb.os. F. Hill, of this
city, and Mrs. Ottie L. Sadler, of
Lowndesville, The marriage ceremony
was a yery quiet affair, and was witnessed
only by a few of the relatives of the con?
tracting parties. Immediately after the
ceremony the happy couple came to this
city. The Intelligence extends its
best wishes to Capt. Hill and his charm?
ing bride, and joins their many friends in
wishing them a happy and prosperous
voyage through life.
Mrs. Fannie Garrison, wife of Mr. Hen?
ry Garrison, died very suddenly in this
city last Friday afternoon, about 5 o'clock.
She was in her usual health Friday morn?
ing and attended to her household duties,
but later on she complained of not feeling
well, and in the afternoon Mr. Garrison in?
sisted that he should call a physician. She
finally consented, and while he was gone
for the physician she grew worse and in a
short time expired. Mrs. Garrison was a
daughter of the late Rev. Jeremiah Win?
ter, and was born in London, England, in
1811, When about six years of age her
parents came to America, and settled at
Pendleton, where she resided until 1853,
when she moved to Anderson, and has re?
sided here ever since. She was married
to Mr. Henry Garrison in 1843, and this
union was blessed with six children, all of
whom preceded their mother to the grave.
Mrs. Garrison, when about 12 years of
&ge, joined the Methodist Church, and has
ever been a faithful and exemplary mem?
ber. She was a very industrious and en?
ergetic lady,, and possessed many noble
virtues. She was a lady of very strong
and fixed principles, and was ever ready
to do anything that would further the
cause of Christ. Her devoted husband
has many sympathizers in his sore be?
reavement. On Sunday afternoon her
funeral services were conducted in the
Methodist Church by Rev. W. A. Hodges,
after which her remains were interred in
the Presbyterian cemetery.

On last Thursday night the Building
Committee of the Anderson Hotel Com?
pany met and opened the bids for the
Building of the new hotel. The contract
was awarded to Mr. E. D. Sharkey, of
Union, who takes tne contract for the
erection of the entire building, which
will cost $50,000. In order to complete the
building in accordance with the plan
adopted, the Committee determined to in?
crease the capital stock of the Company,
and this was done next day withont the
least trouble. Mr. Sharkey will begin
work immediately, and he thinks he can
complete the building by the 1st of next
May. The building' wi? have a granite
foundation and finished in accordance with
the plan submitted by the architect, Mr.
Bruce. When finished Anderson will
have one of the best equipped, most mod?
ern and most imposing hotel building to
be found in South Carolina, Hurrah for
Anderson! The dream of years is at last
' to tfe realized. This enterprise has been
accomplished by a little effort and energy,
and only shows what may be bone by
unity of action.
On Wednesday of last week informa?
tion reached the city that Mr. O. B. Van
Wyck, formerly of this city, but now a
resident t * Salisbury, N. C, had, on the
night previous, shot and seriously wound?
ed his brother-indaw, Mr. W. H. Over?
man, on the streets of Salisbury. Vari?
ous rumors in reference to the affray have
been current in the city, but it turns out
that none of them were true, and that the
Bhooting was accidental. The .Salisbury
Watchman has ibis to say about it:
"What might have resulted in a very se?
rious accident happened last Tuesday
night on the corner of Mam and Fisher
streets. Mr. 0. B. VanWyok and Mr. W.
H. Overman. Jr., were standing on the
corner and Mr. Overman asked Mr. Van?
Wyck for his pistol. Mr. VanWyck took
it out of his pocket and in some way it
was discharged. Mr. Overman fell to the
ground, and as soon as assistance arrived
e was carried to the Boyden House,
wheie the doctors (Messrs. Whitehead,
Summereil and Campbell) found that the
bullet' had struck Mr. Overman on the
left side of the head, glancing off and in?
flicting a painful wound, but not a dan?
gerous one. Mr. VanWyck surrendered
himself to a magistrate, who released him
on his recognizance until morning, when,
as a matter of form, he gave bond for his
appearance at the next court. Mr. Van?
Wyck and Mr. Overman were, and
always have been, the best of friends.

A ripple of curiosity was noticeable last
Saturday morning as an elderly female,
attired in a dress of sombre hue, stepped
from the train, and after some talk, an?
nounced herself as Doctor Halpin?Dr.
Narcissa Halpin, of Westminster, S. C.
A few enquiries elicited the information
that the Doctor was a "charm" Doctor,
and only took such cases as physicians
were unable to cure, such as cancers,
wens, etc. She also said.she came to this
settlement upon the recommendation of |
one of Anderson's most noted physicians,
to attend a case that bad baffled his skill.
We await results.
We had the pleasure of attending a big

This community was made sad on last
Sunday morning at the announcement of j
the death of Mrs. W. A. Holland, which
occurred the night previous, after a lin?
gering illness of six long months. Death
is sad .under all circumstances, but it
comes with double force when it lays its
cold embrace upon the wife and the
mother. She leaves a kind and sorrow?
ing husband and four little children, who
have the heartfelt sympathy of all of our
people in this, their sad affliction. Mrs.
Holland was a member of the Methodist
Church, and was a kind-hearted, unas?
suming, Christian lady. $he has been
called from her sphere of duty here, to
the spirit land above,- almost before she
reached the prime of life. The sorrowing
husband should try to realize that our
Father's ways are not our ways, and that
He docth all things well.
J Cotton is being rapidly gathered. We
think the light frost some weeks ago was
a decided benefit to it. The pea crop is
almost a total failure. Corn is more or

as they can manage.

Our reply to the false statement that
appeared in Denver items a few weeks
ago about one man pulling fodder on
''shares," and after taking up a half day's
Eulling found that he bad only twelve
undies to his part, was not to hurt any
one's feelings j but we wrote it because we
thought it would be a correct advertise?
ment for the beagle bound. Remember,
"Jay," and old saying is, that it is the hit
dog that hollers, I will add that if you
motion at some dogs they will boller, so I
don't know whether I was one of the dogs
you hit or one you motioned at. 1 was
one of the six that pulled fodder on the
shares for Mr. ly. K. Cooper, and I was
one of the ones that hollered. You know
the beaglo hound well enough to know
that I didn't holler like one of them.
Yes, Jay, we will admit that some of the
boys went possum hunting last year and
carried a bugle with them; if you have
not forgotten it, you can testify that those
bugle boys met with you in the woods
one night, and you had some of the bea?
gles with you, but no possums. We didn't
lay the bugle on a log that night, for if wo
had we would have caught it full of boa
gles eoing after that mellow persimmon.
Aytcb, the friend who gave you the plan
of hunting 'possums with a bugle, has
two of the beagles which he has trained
well to sit one on one side, and one on the
other of him while he is eating. Submitting
the whole matter to Messrs. Jay anu
Aytch and their beagles, I now declare
myself to desist, as there have been time
and money enough lost on beagles.
As the turnip crop is so near a com?
plete failure, we will have to accompani?

The public ginnors of this community

good turnout; we have not beard of any
that was displeased with either sample or
turnout. And the cotton crop in some
sections is better than it has been for
years, when at one time fear was enter?
tained that cotton would be like the wheat
crop, but it has worked out different, and
as Arp says, all is calm and sereno. M.

Worth Knowing.
j Mr. W. H. Morgan, merchant, Lake
City, Fla., was taken with a severe Cold,
attended with a distressing Cough and run?
ning into Consumption in its first stages.
He tried many so-called popular cough
remedies and steadily grew worse. Was
reduced iu flesh, had difficulty in breath?
ing, and was unable to sleep. Finally
tried Dr. King's New Discovery for Con?
sumption and found immediate relief, and
after using about a half dozen bottles
found himself well and has had no return
of the disease. No other remedy can show
so graud a record of cures, as Dr. King's
New Discovery for Consumption guaran?
teed to do just what is claimed for it.?

? Probably the first prohibition peti?
tion issued in this country has been
discovered iu the State archives of North
Carolina. On May 26, 1756, King Hag
ler of the Catawbaa thus petitioned Cb,ief
Justice Henley: "I desire a stop may
be put to the selling of strong liquors
by the white people to my people, espe?
cially near the Indians. If the white
people make strong drink let them sell it
to one another or drink it in tLeir own
families. This will avoid a great deal of
mischief which otherwise will happen
from my people getting drunk and
quarreling with the white people." The
Chief Justice, as appears from an en?
dorsement, promised to bring the matter
to the Governor's notice.
