Colombia State Remini, March 18.?At the home of Paul Williams, a negro, much excitement is being created by an unknown cause. On the evening of February 28 about 9 o'clock Williams became alarm ed by the continual falling of clay and sticks into his house. At first he thought that some of his neighbors were .merely teasing him and concluded that they would soon 1 ? nnrtnn hnt Vl i O TXT Q Q 1 oecuuie weui/ auu \-caoc, uui. vuia not true. The clay and sticks continued to come into the house through the ehimney and from every imaginable direction. Williams made a close search, but tie could not find the thrower. He became intensely frightened and summoned a few of his nearest neighbors, wht assisted him in making a closer search, but nothing could be seen. They tried firing guns but the more rapid the guns were fired the more rapid came the clay and sticks. The more intelligent class of people, both white and colored, who do not believe ia haunts, have been going to this place witnessing the disturbance and coming away agreeing with the superstitious that the house is being visited by haunts. This has been going on every night since the above date. It begins at dusk and lasts until dawn. Williams father died about four1 months ago at the age of 105 and the; suspicion is that he is the thrower of the sticks andriumps of clay, who pays j his night visus, giving spectators an ! exciting entertainment.

Darlington, March 22.?The first train to pass over the new road built by the Seaboard Air Line from McBee, a small town in the southwestern portion t of Chesterfield county, through DarHngton to Florence, arrived here yesterday afternoon at five minutes to 4 o'clock. The blowing of the whistle and ringing of the bell attracted the larger part of the business community to the scene. The train that came in this afternoon was made up of only four or five freight cars laden with .serial for the building of the track, but it is stated that within a very few days freight trains will be operated and in about two weeks a regular passenger service will be put on. The work is progressing very rapidly on all linos. The track is about completed to the centre of town and foundations and frame work for both depots have been well advanced. The coming; of the Seaboard means a new era for Darlington and fcr a arge part cf this county and the adjoining county of Chesterfield. Territory that is opened by this new road is long been suffering for want of the proper railrcal facilities. Besides the town of Darlington has felt the need for some time of further rai'road advantages. The shipping to and from this point has increased during the past 12 months from .13 to 50 per cent., estimated conserva uYt'i>, auu uiuiigu tMiKiiii's t are operated day and night and have j been for several Sundays, the work ^s too heavy to receive proper attention at the hands of the Atlantic Coast Line with its present facilities. "Beware of the demagogue," said Teddy Roosevelt in his Atlanta speech on Thursday. Very good advice; the trouble, though, is somtimes to dis-. tinguish the real article. A small boy: at school, being asked what a demagogue is, replied that it in "some-1 thing to hold liquor." | I You can get The Chronicle for $1 a year. Send it to a friend. APPOINTEES ARE ENJOINED Governor Bound by Recommendation of County Legislative Delegation. Where the law says appointments shall be made upon the recommendation of the county legislative delegation, the governor is powerless to do otherwise; he is bound to absolutely follow such recommendations. This in substance was the decision reached by Judge Ernest Gary upon the Beaufo-t township commissioners case. Judge Gary permanently enjoyned the Blease appointees from taking office as commissioners for St. Helena township. Whether the governor will now commission, without further ado, the men recommended by the delegation, Messrs. T. R. Kittles, J. E. Mason, and William Keyserling, remains to be seen. It is presumed that if he declines to do so, the courts will be asked to mandamus him to issue the commissions. The petitioners for the injunction were the present commissioners, Messrs. G. W. Wilkins, Edgar Fripp and William JCeyserling. Arguments were heard before Judge Gary here Saturday afternoon, but he declined to make known at that time his decision in the matter. His decree was Issued Saturday nght. Young Federal Prlsloner.
