We are informed that the roads in
some parts of the county are in a ter
rible condition. In some places
where a road passes through a field,

it is then impossible to drive without
running over the beds. This is a di

Mr. A. Plumer Burgess is now can

for all the States in the Union," by
Theophilus Parsons, LL. D. The
necessity for such a work as this has
long been felt by farmers, me

iness men. The book is thorough
and complete, leaving nothing to be
desired. It gives in the simplest
form and clearest possible manner all
the facts and forms necessary to en
able every person to understand the
laws of business. Altogether it is a
valuable book of reference.

On last Wednesday night amidst rela

Minnie, a charming daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Julius Brown, was united in holy
wedlock to Mr. Gustave Alexander, of Man

Rev. Levy in the impressive and imposing
ceremony customary among the Jews.
The bride appeared on the arm of the
groom elegantly dressed in white satin en
train and diamonds, and never was bride
more fair or groom more hAndsome. After
the ceremony one of the most elegant sup

mirth and happiress reigned supreme un

Sumomeor, July 3.-The new Summer
ton Baptist church was dedicated last Sun
day. Rev. Dr. T. M. Bailey preached the
dedicatory sermon. His text was "Christ
and Him crucified," and the sermon was a
strong, forcible, able one, well delivered.
At the close of the sermon, Rev. C. C.
Brown, of Sumter, made some pertinent
remarks, after which the building was dedi
cated to the service of God.
In the afternoon, at the Sunday-school
mass meeting, Dr. Bailey made one of the
best Sunday-school speeches I ever listened
to. Rev. Brown preached a sermon at
night, after which the ordinance of baptism
was administered. Dr. Bailey also preach
ed Saturday morning, and R1ev. Brown Sat

all these services. C.

Jonas, June 27.-Upon returning home
after the close of school, I found all of the

The club met at the usual hour on the 30th,

able interest was manifested, and two tick
ets for delegates were in nomination. This
club has always been pretty much divided
in politics. It was clearly apparent that
the friends are at work for their choice in
candidates. It was never so developed that
voters are at sea, for their minds are not
settled: they are drifting about trying to
fix their choice in~ this canvass. I find it
to be too early yet to form any just conclu
sion as to who may be the choice of the peo
ple. Coming issues are to be met. Some
of them when discussed may lead to divis
ion, unsettle the mind, and cpen wide
breaches that may lead to party lines. This
is more or less the' case. It will be so as
long as men want office. The following
delegates were chosen to seats ir. the -con

T. Coallette, L. N. Richbourg. TOM.
Too Much General and Colonel.
Now is the time for tlie taxpayers to come
forward in their might and cast about for
good men to send as delegates to, the con
vention. Send ruen who have practiced
already the reform that we need. Tihe men
vho have permitted a foolish sentiment to
guide them up to this time are not the ones
to risk now. Our people are poor indeed,
and those men who caa support no one for
office but the Generals and Colonels, etc.,
should be left at home. There never was a
state more overridden by sentiment and
nonsense than South Carolina has been,
and not until we get a real live, successful
business man at the helm will we be able
to rise. The great trouble has been too
much General and too m uich Colonel. Put
these men on a level with the others, and
don't permit that empty title to outweigh
merit and ability in otheia.-Camden Jour

There is an uprising all over the State

To do this they will have to bring suits

Gov. tichardson's Idea.
The address of Governor.Richardson be
for. the Greenwo.od Male High School last
Friday, was worthy of the occasion and the
man. He said he had not come for the pur
pose of making an annual oration as was
stated of him in his introduction ;o the au
dience, but he desired to urge the claims of
education upon the people through the
channel of the common school system to
which the State was committed. He inci
dentally repelled the charge that we were a
tax-ridden people, and showed by a com
parison with other States that we paid a less
State tax than any other people. He said
that the State had nothing to do with the
county taxes, and if that was heavy it was
the fault of the county which imposed it,
and the State was not chargeable with it.
Gov. Richardson spoke without notes and
held the rapt attention of the large audience
for an hour. He was frequently applauded.
A Cruel Corner in Coffee.
NEw Yonk, June 29.-A corner in June
coffee was sprung upon the speculative
market this morning. When operators
having June Coffee to deliver attempted to
buy it they found it was all held by S. Gru
ner & Co. and Crossman Brothers, who rep
resent the bull clique. In the first hour of
business the price advanced 5j cents a
pound, opening with a sale at 12t cents and
advanced to 13 cents on the first call on
sales of 1,250 tags. After the call it rose
one cent at a time until noon, when 18
cents was bid and no coffee found for sale.
In the afternoon a selling price was fixed
on by brokers for the bull houses, making
transactions at 21 and 21.05 cents per pound,
an advance of 805 points since the opening.
The brokers claim that the short interest is

How a Carolina Negro made a President.
In January last, there died in the historic
city of Columbia, South Carolina, an aged
negro named William Beverly Nash; his
residence was situated on Taylor's Hill,
which is one of the most picturesque por
tions of Carolina's beautiful capital city.
This man was a full-blooded negro, and
had been a slave in Columbia; at one time
he was a boot-black, but destiny had greater
things in store for this descendant of the
swarthy Ethiopian. than the menial occupa
tion of blacking boots. He became a prom
inent actor in the political world, during
the stirring days of "radical misrule" in the
Palmetto State, and is said to have been the
man who caused Rutherford B. Hayes, in
stead of Samuel J. Tilden, to be seated as
President of the United States. Colonel A.
K. McClure told us, several years ago, how
this happened. Writing to the Philadel
phia Times, from Columbia, about promi
nent negro leaders, he thus told the story of
Beverly Nash, the Negro Warwick, who, he
says, '-was an omnipotent local leader for a
time, making himself Senator and Presi
dential Elector in 1876. He held the fate
of Hayes in his hands when the result in
the State was questioned, and he made the
most of it. He publicly professed to have
received a large offer from the Democrats to
vote for Tilden, but whites and blacks un
derstood that it was simiply notice .that the
Republicans must pay his price, and it had
to be done."
Doubtless Nash did receive offers of
bribes to cast his Eiectoral vote for Tilden;
if he had done so, how different the history
ofg our country would have been ! How
strange does it seem that fate should place
in the grasp of a black Carolina negro, the
power of making a certain man President
of the American Ujnion !

Written by the President In air Album.
[Iom the Pittsburgh Press
A lady went to the White House recently
to obtain the President's autograph. Hand
ing Mr. Pruden, the Executive clerk, a
bright, clean sheet of tinted note paper with
her monogram upon it, she requested that
gentleman to ask Mr. Cleveland to inscribe
his name thereon. Mr. Pruden,. always
obliging, went to the President's private
o~e to secure the favor for the lady. Re
turning in a few moments be said : "The
President sends his compliments, and says
that if you will bring your autograph al
bum he will be glad to write his name in it,
but he never puts his signature on a blank
piece of paper."
The lady was rather taken aback, but,
thanking Mr. Pruden for his kindness, re
tm-ned home to bring her album. The
book being a trifle dingy in appearance,
and also quite fall of autographs. she de
termined to purchase a new one, and have
the President's signature to "start it." Pro
ceeding to Ballantyne's book store on the
avenue, she bought a new and handsome
album, and repaired to the White House,
arriving there within twenty minutes from
the time she had left. Mr. Pruden smiling,
took the book and repaired to the President
to obtain his autograph for the persevering
lady. Returning, he gave the book to the
lady, who, thanking him, left for her home.
Upon arriving there she opened the album
to gaze on the valued inscription, and
found the following :
