The people of Winnsboro, who had a carnival last week, are very sore over the matter. They say they've had their share; that one's enough.

Rice, colored, of Union county, was ad vertised for sale on salesday under a judgment obtained at the last tern of court by a negro woman who sued Rice for a breach of the pro. mise of marriage and got a verdict for $2,500.

The Columbia hospital and St. Peter's church each receive $5,000. The legacy to the city schools includes four acres of the race track at the fair grounds and $40,ooo in money. There is an other bequest of $9,000 to be used by the city for the p)revention of cruelty to animals. By a strange coincidence Mr. Charles Muller, an aged Confedi erate veteran wvho died at WVinns boro last week from injuries re ceived from burnring, was buried in the same grave with a man who in the great conflict wore the blue. The lot selected for his interment was overrun with vines and1( the persons to whom was entrusted the dligging of the grave dug into the grave of a Vankee soldier who died at Winnsb)oro whliile therec with an encamplment mn 1865.
