hope it will nj\v inform them where
they can find a profitable market for it.

Si'orpED.?Thu cotton seed traffic is a
thing ol the past in the St. Matthews
section of our county. This happy
state of affairs was brought about by
the energetic a.vtion of the anti-cotton
seed trallic association organized in that
section some time ago. Capt. V. M.
Waiinamaker. who was one of the origi
nators of the association,estimates tiiat
the saving to the fanners in that sec
tion through the influence of this or
ganization is not less tiian ten thous
and dollars. This is a splendid .show
ing, and should induce other sections of
the county to take hold of the matter
in the same way if the Legislature fails
to give the desired relief.
Death ok a Good Max.?Our com
munity was pained Monday morning
to hear of the extreme illness of Mr. T.
W. Albergotti, the well-known baker
of our town. He attended the Metho
dist church as usual on Sunday morn
ing and seemed to be in his usual
health, but was suddenly taken down
with paralysis about seven o'clock the
same evening, and died on. Monday
morning about ten o'clock. Mr. Alber
gotti was a good man in the fullest
sense of the word, and exemplified in
his correct walk and conversation the
religion he professed. At the time of
his death he was in the sixty-third year
of his age. To his stricken' family" we
tender our sympathies.
Our Stories.?We have received
several enquiries as to whet her the pub
lication of Dr. Tal mage's sermons
would cause us to discontinue the pub
lication of our serial stories. In an
swer to these enquiries we would say
no. The story feature of our paper
will be kepi up. It has taken splendid
ly with our readers, and we are deter
mined to do everything that our means
will allow to make Tin: Time* and
Democrat a popular and entertaining
visitor to the homes of our patrons.
In tbi.-- connection we would state that

Dr. Talmasre's sermons. We will in
future publish them weekly. Thcscr-I

livered by ilm distinguished preacher
last Sunday in his church at Brook
lyn. At great expense we have se
cured the -exclusive right from the
American Press Association to publish
these sermons in Orangcburg County
immediately after their delivery, but
we tire satisfied that our efforts to keep
The Times and Democrat abreast of
the times will be appreciat-H.1 by our
numerous subscribers. It would not
be u bad idea for the lather or mother
of the family to read these sermons
every week to the children. They will
be profited by it.

they can to assist in so worthy and
necessary an object. It is a common

a Country Wedding,
kockey swamp, Noy. 20,1886.
Editor Times and Democrat:
On Wednesday, November 21th nit.,
our usually quiet community was some
what relieved of the accustomed mo
notony, by the circulation of wedding
cards "from house to house. As per in
vitation, at'.) o'clock P. M., a large and
merry crowd, with happy, smiling
faces", assembled at Hockey Swamp,
(M. E. Church, South.) which was taste
fully decorated with arches of ever
green and vases lilled with sweet-scent
ed llowers from the hot-houses of the
fair daughters of the neighborhood; a
happy scene for mid-winter. Soon the
bridal party drove up, consisting of the
bride and groom, Miss Mattie Gleaton,
daughter of Mr. T. J). Gleaton. and Mr.
Evans Fullmer, attended by Messrs. J.
B. Fullmer, S. T. Fullmer, Marion
Ehney, Erwin Phillips, George Wil
liamson, and Misses Vernelia Gleaton.
Alice Gleaton, Ida Corbett, Mary Phil
lips, Emma Argoe. The ceremony was
performed by Rev. Ii. B.?Tarrant, at
the conclusion of which the minister
presented, with appropriate remarks, a
handsome Bible, a present from the
father of the groom. After congratu
lations a chosen few .assembled at Mr.
T. I). Gleaton's, where we engaged in
the more substantial part of the cere
mony, viz: the bridal feast; and it was
a feast indeed! Everything that could,
tempt the appetite was spread before
the delighted guests, and all enjoyed
happily the bountiful repast. Although
the night was dark and dreary, yet all
seemed to be bright and happy. We
left the merry makers early, but hope
all things passed olT pleasantly to the
end. An Eye WITNESS.
Our Firemen.?The sixteenth anni
versary of the Elliott Hook and Ladder
Company was celebrated last Tuesday.
In the afternoon the company, escorted
by the Young America Steam Fire
Engine Company, paraded our streets,
and presented a most handsome appear
ance. After the parade the following
Officers were elected: R. F. Bryant,
Foreman; S. A. Dukes, Assistant Fore
man; X. II. Bull, First Director; W. L.
Izlar, Second Director; 0.1?. Lowman.
Secretary; J. E. Glover, Treasurer; Rev.
J. Q. Wertz, Chaplain; Dr. A. S. Ily
drick, Surgeon: T. M. Kaysor, Solicitor.
After the" routine business had been
disposed of the company proceeded in a
body to Way's Hall, where a most ex
cellent collation was served by Mine
Host Fairey, of the Orangeburg Hotel,
to which ample justice \v:is done by
the gallant Elliotts and their guests.
After supper speaking was indulged in
for a few hours, the following gentle
men responding to appropriate toasts:
('apt. Jno. A. Hamilton. Mr. Henry
Kohn, Mr. S. It. Mellichamp, Mr. F. A.

it tight enough to break the cold winds.
And by doing this and keeping the

with pine straw and leaves, you can

Peterson's Magazine for Decem
ber, that old favorite, is before us, ahead
of all others. It may be called a "prize
number." It has two splendid steel
engravings; one, "Meadow-Sweet," as
lovely as we ever saw, and a title-page,
with a beautiful girl's face, also unri
valed; in fact, "Peterson" is now the
only magazine that goes to the expense,
;dl the year through,of these costly ami
elegant original steel-engravings. Then.'
is also a mammoth colored fashion
plate, likewise engraved on steel, and
colored by hand -a "perfect love of a
thing." as the ladies would say. Still
more, there is a colored pattern" in Ber
lin-work, such as would sell for fifty
cents, but which is given, gratis, to
.subscribers, for a Christmas-gift. Be
side these, there are some liftv wood
cuts of fashion, embroidery anil crochet
patterns, etc. The literary contents
more than maintain the long-establish
ed reputation of "Peterson" as giving
the best original stories. We do not
see how any lady or any family can be
without this magazine; its time is al
ways high and pure, so it is just the one
for the home-circle. The price is but
two dollars a year. To clubs, it is
cheaper yet; four copies for six dollars
and forty cents, with tin extra copy to
the person getting up the club, costly
premiums are given in addition. Speci
mens sent, gratis, if written for, so that
there may be no deception. Now'is the
