Two large buildings, a stable and a

spite of hard work on the part of
oth fire companies, it was impossible
o save the buildings. The large store
elonging to the same firm was in
reat daitger of being barned, as it
as almost surrounded by fire, one of
he burning~ bni!dings being on the

acceeded in saving it. The buildings

THE SOUTH CAROLINA INTER-STATE
AND WEST INDIAN EXPOSITION.
When the project was first agitated
in January, very few people thoughl
it would ever materialize; that am
exposition on a large scale was toc
big a job for the staid old city o0
Charleston to undertake, and it will
be remembered that when the project
received the endorsement of the Gover
nor and .legislature and was then pre
sented to the people through the
medium of th* press, the universal
opinion was, that it would be a good
thing for the State, and for Charles
ton, if the money could be raised, but,
that the Charleston people would nol
go down in their pockets and put up
the necessary amount.
These who held that view have
been mistaken; Charleston has shown
its hand and the subscription now ex
ceeds $110,000 and is daily being
The exposition is projected for the
benefit of the people of the entire
Stat. , and the projectors have decided
that wherever the people wish to join
with i bem and subscribe to the capital
stock, they should have the oppor
tunity to do so. To this end the
executive committee have appointed
citizens of each county on the com
mittee land have sent them bocks of
subscription to be opened at conven
ient places within the county, where
those desiring to subscribe for one or
more shares of the stock, can do so.
Subscription books .have been sent

mittee for this county, who will take
