Mr. J. E. Zachary and wife, of
Adairsville, Ga., are visiting relatives
. and friends in this country at this time.
Jim, as we always called him, used to
live in this country, and we have gone
"to parties with him, we have been in
debating-societies with him and went
to shows with him, and he was a jolly,
good fellow, and we were real glad to
meet np with him again. To meet with
old friends like that brings up old
memories, and carries one back to
the time when the world looked bright
and one was free from care and
' thought./ It would not be ten years
before we would be rich as Jews. But
old Father Time is a great leveler of
all things. So it has leveled down our
fortune so thai; if we make a living we
think we do we. I. Mr. Zachary if ; in

Miss Harriett League, of near this
place, fell off a wagon the other day
and was knocked senseless for a time,
and was thought to be dead, but she
rallied after she was worked with a
while, and she is thought to be out of
Rev. Dr. Matthews is protracting a
meeting at this place at the present
writing. Dr. Matthews is a forceful
and logical speaker, and eames con
viction to his hearers.
Mr. John Richey, of near Fair Play,
was shot and killed by Bill Powers on
the evening of the 18th inst, lt was a
daring and atrocious deed. ' It appears
that Powers had went to Mr. Richey's
house pretending to want to swap hor
ses with him, and had eaten supper
with him and fed his horse. After sup
per he caught out his horse to go home,
and Richey was standing by the horse
with his hand on its neck, when some
one passing on the road attracted Rich
ey's attention. Powers said, "Look
here, Richey!" and as he turned his head
to him he put the pistol in his face and
blew out his grains. Powers then put
spurs to his horse and made his escape.
' Powers was captured later and is now
in the Oconee jail. He says he don't
.care what $hey do with him so they
don't break his neck.
Our country is getting pretty dry at

and fodder. Why don't all oar farm

. What dc you think, Mr. Editor, of
i <of human nature anyhow? We noticed
.a writer not long ago condemning an
other writer for using personal flings,
and before he got through he had a
string of personal flings in the shape of
"l's" and "Judges" as long as our fin
.ger. Now, what do you think ofhu
.man nature? It depends, we suppose,
altogether on whose bull is gored.
Rev. W. C. Barton, of Fair Play, S.
; C., is teaching a sommer school at Pine
Grove, just over in Oconee.
We made one of a party to visit
Clemson College on the 9th inst. We
?drove to the park and ate dinner under
the .spreading oaks, then drove around
the park and viewed the broad acres of
Sue bottom corn, which did us a great
deal of good. Then we went to thc
Calhoun residente and inspected his
.heirlooms, among which was a ci ia ir
; that belonged to George Washington.
It was an old-time armchair, without
nockere, and we took a seat in it and
thought perhaps we would receive some
.of the virtue of that great and good
enan, and maybe someday we could cut
some man's cherry tree, if we never get
to be president. We looked at a cloak
made of beaver ekin, which was ?re
sented to Mr. Calhoun by an Indian
chief, and it was very thick and soft,
but the moths are eating the lining
away from the skin. We think the
trustees ought to take sonic steps to
?ireserve it. We also saw Mr. Cal
loun's piano, which is a short, low, flat
instrument, and ina good state of pres
ervation. There is also a large, dan
gerous-looking sawfish bone w-hich wc
never took much stock in. We went
from there to thc college building, and
there Mrs. "Old Kosin de Bow" thrust
the baby into our arms aud skipped
with the youug folks to go through the
building. Well, we dropped into a
.chair and coddled the baby awhile, and
then, with a determination that is boru
of despair, we shouldered the baby and
began ascending flight after flight of
stairs until we made six aud arrived at
the clock tower, where we found some
workmen putting hands on a clock face
as a substitute for a real clock. Then
we went to the chapel, which was
beautifully decorated, which we sup
posed was done for commencement.
Then we went to the Calhoun Literary
Society room, which is furnished beau
tifully with fine carpets and opera
chairs and with a nice Rtand for the
speaker,*and a nice table with an al
bum on it, with the pictures of the
great Literatures of the day. There a
good lady, Mrs. J. J. Haley, (bless her)
proposed to carry the young "Kosin de
Bow" awhile. We then went to the li
brary and there we saw what wc
thought was a vast sight of books, but
those college folks don't think they
have got many, because there arc two
Tooms in the library that they have not
commenced putting books in yet. Why
can't some millionaire present to our
college a fine library, so that our boys
can have the best advantage possible
to get a good education? We then
paid our respects to Dr. P. il. E. Sloan,
the secretary, whom we found to be
very pleasant courteous and obliging.
From there we went to thc machine
shops, and found that building well
equipped with machinery to teach the
boys to be master mechanics, which,
we think, is avery important branch of
their study. By this time Mrs. Haley
had surrendered the baby to us, and a
big fat man that could not walk for the
oppressive heat, came along in a bug
gy and we persuaded him to take the
baby, and while we were in the ma
chine shops he drove oft* with it, and
oh! such a time as we had with Mrs.
"Old Rosin de Bow" when she found
out it was gone. Mr. Editor, were you
ever kicked by a mule or struck by,
lightning? But never mind, we got
over it af ter so long a time, and that
was when the fat man came back with
the baby, and then we started to the
conservatory. Before we got there we
missed our fine bird dog and so we
landed the ladies at the flower house
and went back to the college to hunt
him up. We went to Dr. Sloan and he
said wc had better watch his clerks or
thev would hook him, and sure enough
we went in the hall and whistled, and
.we heard the dog bark somewhere up
stairs. Dr. Sloan came out and said he
heard the dog bark, and'we sent a man
up to the library and xuilockcd thc door
and the dog bounded out, and Dr.
Sloan guyed the clerk and went away
as happy as could be. We never went
througn the cheese factory and the
creamery and the steam laundry and
and the chemistry building, so we will
have to go back and take them in. and
also the textile building and thc U. S.
experiment station. We saw Calhoun's
statue and Clemson's portrait, but we
never saw Tillman's portrait in all our
rounds, and he has done so much for
the college, too. We got home and the
baby cried a good deal through the
night, and Mrs.. "Old Rosin de Bow''
knowed that thc big fat man had hurt
the baby, but wc argued to her that fat
people were always good and kind to
children, but wc would like for you to
convince a woman against her will, for
she would be of the same opinion still.
OLD ROSIN DE BOW.
Your correspondent has just been
talking with some of the best and most
conservative farmers of the neighbor
hood, J. T. Green, J. G. Harris, E. B.
Rice, Sr., and others in regard to the
crop prospects around this plao, and
they all estimate that there will not be
more than 40 or 50 per cent of a full
crop made. There nad been several
good showers, and crop prospects were
fairly good here until two weeks ago,
but they are failing very rapidly now.
JBut notwithstanding the gloomy out
look the new enterprises going up here
make our people lively and cheerful.
A new firm, to be known as the "Cox
Drug Co.," with Dis. J. M. Holcombe,
W. R. Haynie, and Mr. J. S. Cox, co
partners, has been formed, for the pur
pose of operating an up-to-date drug
store in the room now used by Mr. J.
T. Cox for drugs. They have employ
ed Dr. B. A. Graman, of Charleston, S.
C., as pharmacist. Dr. Graman is a
licensed pharmacist, graduating in 1891,
and for several years past has been the
pharmacist for the City Hospital of
Charleston. He comes highly recom
mended not only as a competent drug
man butas a perfect gentleman as well.
This firm will begin to do business
Dr. Stokes is keeping pace with the
progress and spirit of the place, too.
He has employed Mr. Walter S. Rich
ardson, lately connected with Dr.
Dendy in the drug business at Pelzer,
and a thorough competent druggist, to
assist him in the conduct of his active
and increasing business.
Mr. W. K. Stringer has employed
Mr. John McCuen, of Princeton, Lau

McCuen will commence work ne t
The Woman's Missionary Society of
Baptist Church will serve refreshments
at the tennis grounds next Friday
afternoon sifter five o'clock. These
little social gatherings are invariably
very pleasant, indeed, and it is hoped
a liberal patronage will be given the
ladies Friday afternoon.
A series of meetings will begin at
the ^Methodist Church Wednesday
Messrs! C. W. Rice and W. B. West
spent a day and night at Cedar Falls
and Fork Shoals, Greenville County,
the past week.
Mr. W. K. Stringer and sister have

Miss Lois Henderson, of Greenville,
lias been employed to teach thc pri
mary department and music of thc
High School next session. Miss Hen
derson is a graduate of Chicora College,
of Greenville, and is a young woman
of rare teaching ability.* All arrange
ments for the opening of school have
now been made, and it is hoped that
those who are interested about sending
their children will see to it that they
are present on the opening day. A

Last Saturday evening a cloud was
seen to rise in thc North, and within a
short time there came a mighty wind,
which caused trees and a few shelters
and outbuildings to fall before it. Then
the raiu began to pour, and for a few
minutes it seemed that everything was
going, but then it ceased and a hail
followed. Much damage was done to
cotton and corn, but we have heard of
Agaiuthc death angel has visited our
community carrying with him a be
loved mother, luis. Margaret McDan

Daniel, who precoded her to the grave
some twenty-seven years ago. Mis.
McDaniel was in her seventieth year.
She has not been able to get out of her
house in thirteen years, having been a
cripple, but her death was brought on
by paralysis. She died last Sunday
and was buried on the following Mon
day at Hopewell. She leaves eight
children and a host of friends to mourn
her death, lt seems sad to give up a
mother, the best friend on earth, but
tho Holy One knows best, and we
should submit to His will.
Some few months ago the cruel hand
of death carried oft'a sweet little girl of
two summers. Rubie Williams. Then
going away he stayed only a short time
to return and carry away a noble young

and now he takes ah aged lady. True
are the words, "The old must die and
the young may die." So let tho people
take warning and prepare Tor death,
