suffering from a heart affection. He
was more than seventy years old, be

Mr. H. D. Plowden is ahead in this
county on the corn question. He
brought dts last week some very large
ears of corn of a crop he planted the
6th of last June, after he had gather
ed a crop of oats from the same piece
of land. There were 2 3-4 acres, from
which he gathered 85 bushels, and
from one of these acres he gathered
40 bushels. The, corn was fertilized
with 65 pounds guano and three
loads rough manure to the acre, and
was planted in rows 5 feet apart, 18
inches on the bed. 130 ears of the
corn when shelled weighed 64 1-2
pounds, and measured 1 bushel 3 1-2
quarts. The corn was not replanted,
and no pease or anything else was
planted on the land. It was not
planted for a prize, but we think it
would be an excellent idea for Mr.
Plowden to send some of this corn to
the State Fair. It would very proba
bly take a prize.

by . J. Aycock for larceny. The
charge was that last Saturday Mr.
Aycock gave to his son, C. B. Aycock,
a new ten dollar bill to buy beef with.
C. B. Aycock, without examining the
bill or knowing how much it was,
took it to Nelson, who gave him

Silver's Successful Start.
Sava, Nov. 5, 1889.-Your newsy
columns have been so well filled with
good reading matter for several weeks,
that your correspondent has not been
missed. I like the maximum of the
various reports of every section so
well, that I am always more inclined
to want to read others than for them
to read me. You know how hard it
is to get news in the county. We live
so remote from railroad facilities, away
from the rumbling bustle of city life.
We will, however, soon vie with Man
ning and Summerton. They must
acknowledge ere Christmas comes that
Silver is their equal. The Eutawville
Railroad is ready for the iron. The
trestle across Sammy Swamp is al
most completed; then nothing remains
but the track laying. This is being
pushed as rapidly as possible. In two
weeks the material train will reach the
town of Silver.
Silver station is named in honor of
the President of the road. It is lo

It really seems like this is to be
one of the best and prettiest little
towns in the general make up of Clar
endon. Then there will be other en
terprises, now in contemplation, which
will give life to the place.
There is to be a large saw mill,
a soap factory, and a glass fac

better suited to hold its own than
this-a magnificent scope of country,
healthy as the mountains. It opens

A large union academy will be built

office here, and we shall certainly ex

Silver proposes to be a dry town.
In the selection for mayor and alder
men prohibition will be her moral
standard. It has been said to judge
the piety of certain individuals you
must count their jugs and demijohns.
Silver discards this view of her citi
zens. This argument may do for riv
er navigation, but in this moral at
mosphere where the best and purest
morals of our young men stand the
highest, and where christian virtue
has been elevated beyond the jug and
the- card table, I think I speak the
truth when I say our young men are
better raised than to be guilty of such
things. Wherever young men are
led astray it is invariably done by
some older head. Now this is a hard
saying, nevertheless it is true, unfor
tunately. Standing where a steamer
was once unloading her cargo, on see
ing a jug labeled to one whom I knew~
to be a church official, the question
was asked, Does he drink ? The agent
replied: He gets them mighity often,
and its the only way I can judge who
are members of the church.

most perfunctory character-the in

efforts would prove unavailing.
In most cases for a man to declin

banishment from the esteem and as

which few men had the force of char

on duelling in a very different light

holding officers who were conveni
