Editor Orangthnry Timm: The pic-nic on **Ascension Day/1 the 20th ult., nt Pinekney's Lauding, under the auspices of the Santce Base Ball Club, to which you wore in vited and did uot conic, was a suc cess. Your fricudo would, certainly, have enjoyed your presence, indeed your name had actually been "put in the pot" (if you will allow a kitchen phrase.) and you have no idea the good things you missed by not being prescht. If the remaining portion left after the immense crowd had beeen fed ami feast*, d, was intended as your share, o> be ran*umrd at the i'ftVe, the Santo? folks have surely misjudged your c?/?rc/Vj. To describe the pic-nie grounds and their surroundings, requires the pen of an artist; ami such I claim not to wield. To appreciate the hills and valleys, the grand old live-oak trees with their low-hanging, moss covered houghs, and other natural scenery iu endless variety, one must oo there and see, to be thoroughly convinced of their beauty. '1 he forenoon wus occupied by the young ladies and gen'.lcmcn in pro menading, bout-riding and perhtpt courting. Your correspondent saw canoes drifting down the river,- each boat containing two occupants. They didn't seem to he alarmed, or anxious to land?and-hui-the future will tell. The married gentlemen discussed the fence law anil crop.v, and the elderly married ladies, always in dispcnsible at such plai cs, prepared for?tinnier. Before it was announced however, and while the crowd wnsap patently at rest, a few gentlemen made a happy hit by inviting to speak aad introducing to the audi ence Maj.T. B. Whiilcy who spoke as only the Majorenn upon such oc casions. He alluded very beauti fully to the day we were celebrating, reviewed in his eloquent style the political situation County, Stale and National, and closed with a most ap propriate and complimentary tribute to the fair ladies. To an appreciative mind his speech upon the wdiole was a rare treat. Next in order ean'i di niter, f? mmom/, the event of the day. I will lit say that the tal e 4 roan ad under its weight of good things, but the variety ai d quality of the viands prepared by those Santee and Provi dence ladies would unquestionably make a man groun if he lingered too long, "rmiid the festive hoard." At Ik o'clock P. M.. the "Sun toe" ami "Kilthw" Hase Ball Clubs were railed out by their captains, and after the usual preliminaries the two "Nines" entered the held to contest for the championship. Mr. W. L. DeHay was chosen Umpire, and at the eio.se of four innings the score stood: Santee, 20 runs: Kutaw 20 runs. Mr. A. B. Parier o." the Sun tec, and M s .rs. S. C. Moorcr, L. Carson of the Kutaw made each a clean score of four runs. The announcement of the core was followed by the hurrahs; mil then drinks?of lemonade, Mr. Editor, which could not be surpass cd, were freely discussed. This lemonade feature of the pic nic was indeed very enjoyable, and theyoung gentlemen who originated the idea in I so successfully carried it out de serve special praise. Fortunately this ice-cold beverage was dispensed by married ladies, else the rustic counter of the bar would have been ill all probability a little crowded. Five o'clock, and we saw the last boat full of excursionists land, the ladies on board cheering the gallant oarsmen with the song, "Pull for the Shore." To sum up, Mr. Editor, (lost 1 consume, too much of your valuable space) the atlVir, all in all, was a good success, the make tip ami management reflecting much credit upon this thriving neighborhood, and will long be remembered by many who were present as a bright page in memory's hook. Occasional. A physician was walking along a road in the country one day. He met an old man wb? had a hot lie of whiskey sticking out of his coat pocket. "Is this the way to the poor house, sir?" asked the old man, pointing in the direction in which he was walk ing. "No, sirT" answered the physician; "But this is." laying bis band on the bottle of whiskey. That doctor was both witty and wise. - ?I ?? O Boarding bou c brilliancy; 'Sweets to the sweet," said the funny, young man, as he handed the waiter girl a faded bouquet. "Becta to the bent," returned the girl, as she push eel him a plate of the vegetables. Cotton iu Sumtor county, Ga., is half a leg high, and has well formed squares. Jamison, S. C, May 24, 1881. Mr. Editor,: Jamison, while not known as n place of much importance in a com mercial point of. view, has ncverthe le s, pome energetic spirit*, who con tribute much to agriculture, ami the success of her more prosper ions rivals. The crops in this section arc, say, corn promising; cotton where it was plante! early is as good as last year. While there are a few who can boast as yet of a good stand over their general crop, there arc many fanners who have at number of acres hot up. As a general thing cotton is about two weeks later than the crop of last year. Some of our early plan ters will not get entirely through planting until in June The oat crop, while in tome places almost a failure, in others about a half crop may be depended upon. A debating Society has been in progress here for some time, and every ihn g nable subject is compounded by the. old as well as the young seekers of knowledge. The victories I under stand, are pretty well balanced, while the older minds on some sub jeets bear aloft the bloodless banner inscribed upon its folds, ''victory"? them again the young sodier of the literary Cause, recapture the tort, thus it <:o -s, first one, then the other wearing the victorious plumage. Mr. J.S. Crosby, a photographer of merit has been delighting the old as well as the young, the pale faces as-well as those of luhtr, the good looking, the passable and tho?never mind, the bright and the illiterate have all had the same courage to bear the gaze of the man of nature and the thing of art, and Mr. Crosby with his machine has given general satisfaction. I judge he has been conducting a good business, has tnk- 1 en about 170 pictures. He leaves for Ft. Motto next week, and I would suggest to the Citizen? of that place and the surrounding country to give 1 him a trial nnd I doobt not he will accord justice where justice is due. Geddinus. too mas y" la Wye rs and too many fees. Tho rock that the legal profession are in most danger of coming lo" wreck on is that of excessive charges. There is u continual low growling iu the community on this subject. It is notorious that the charges are altogether out of proportion to the time given, the work given or the consideration neeived, and all kinds of vexatious obstacles are thrown in the way of any who seek to efl'ect a reform in this respect. The fact is, fiat the ranks of the legal professin? arc ovcrc.owded and arc being added to year by year to an extent which the public, interests by no means re quii'e. Yet the exclusivencss that obtains with regards to methods of procedure, and the striugent rules imposed upon all the members of the croft, prevent that wholesome ' com petition which exists in all other trades. The consequence is that the. public arc robbed, and that a com paratively few of t he members of the legal profession obtain for themselves the chief portion of the spoil, while the great bulk of them struggle on as best they can. Our legal exchanges are filled with discussions on law yers' costs. The community are bound to have cheeper justice, if they can.?Albany Times. josh billings' "trump cards."

"It is true," replied the Methodist, "we have more machinery than you; but then yon see, it don't take near so much water to run it." Jamison, S. C, 20, 1881. Jdlilor Oranyeburg Hint*: On a quiet and secluded spot in this County, nnd on the dawning of the beautiful. Sabbath morning of the 22nd hint., peacefully paused away that noblo husband, the kind und afieetionute father, nnd the brave and worthy citizen, Mr. Robert Richards', formerly of Charleston. Many' here with sad hearts fol lowed his remains to their last rest ing place nnd beheld him consigned to the quiet grave in Oraugcburg Village. No doubt too, those citi zens of Charleston who knew him in hisypung manhood and pride, will likewise heave a sigh and deeply mourn tho death of this gentleman, expressly thohc of the iEta Fire Company who can remember him while un.olllcer of that Company, and who by devotion to duty while in the Fire Department com para tivly wrecked his health. While Mr. Richards loved his old home in the "City by the .Sea," unhappy calami ties preventing him itt'ttning after i he war, siuce then he has been re siding in Orangeburg County, where he leaves a family, many relatives and a large concourse of friends, who, while they are sad at Iiis removal from among them, love nnd revereuce his memory. K. G. B. REVERIE OF THeVeMAL EDITOR. Miss Eva C. Ivinney, on taking the editorial chair of the Ellis, Kansas, Heniitif/ht, writes in the following light headed way: "How glad we are we've got to he ah editor at lust. We always thought we knew just how to run a paper, and now we've got such a splendid chance. "We'll show those stupid men ex actly how it ottglit to be done. You won'tcatc' u Letting'intoanyfu-ss, or rows or any thing. No, indeed, we'll use tact, and tact, yoii know, is the pricipal thing in running a paper. "We won't meddle iu politics, and thut'will save the trouble with politi eians,, nnd we'll never swear?no, never.A For the life of ua we can't see t bo nse of swearing in a printing .f'titff^ it dou't?makc typc set- itself tip; it don't create items?unless you happen to hit somebody with a club and have to pay the costs?and it don't pick up pie half mi quick as lingers do. Yet the editors all think they can't run a paper without it; but we'll show 'em. "We're soglad we're an editor, and we're going to make such lots of money; we won't spend it all for beer and cigars either. No. indeed; we'll be benevolent and do good with it. We'll give lots to the missionary society?make presents to all our friends?buy books and flowers ifor the poor, and ?oh yes! maybe we'll build a church and endow a collage, and have our name painted on one of the windows, with a design. Yes, of course we must have a design on the window. Let's sec, a pair of scissors and a paste-pot would be nppropritc, would it not? Or a hoy, a roller?but then roller boys always have dirty faces, ami the artist wouldn't want to paint dirt, would he? '?It's such fun to be an editor! Think of the sweet revenge we'll take when we stuff the products of some a-piring genius into the waste I nsk et. And then with what an exquisite thrill of pleasure we'll take our pen and write the author a polite note, tolling him we would have been de lighted to publish his excellent arti cle if we only had room, and wouldn't he like to subscribe for our paper, or get ti;i up a club? Ah, we've bad ex perience. That's the way the men editors used to do by us when we were "only a writer.' And sweeter still will be our revenge on those editors t hemselves, who used to crush our budding genius with their cruel ly polite sure isms. There's that horrid old 1 ear of the Hay City 6V/?/?'/ir/, when lie published lou r sweet little poem about "Birdie," instead of remarking on the smoothness of the measure, or pathos of its senti ment, he intimated that we'd been sighing for a lover. It wasn't true a hit; but ah! little did that rash m m think we were one tiny to be his?peer. "Oh, dear! it's getting late, and another column of type to go up, on copy ready, and till these advertise nichts behind time?but it's lots of fun to beuneditor." An old woman weighing about three hundred pounds, fell in cross ing the otreet car track, nnd landed in the mud and water. It sounded liko dropping a custard from a third storjr window.

I believe there in more popper, more potash, more snltpcter, more tar,! moro aquafortis and more pinch in woman's nature than iu any other na ture extant. All these, however, lie dormant in a tbin sack, woven of modesty, timidity, coyness and gentleness. Once shake them up and you may look out for a blaze, ac companied by a pcculiur kind of thunder. Women's flesh is thought by some to he a confection, a composition of sugar ami molasses, or tome other saccharine matter. Grant that it bo all sweetness ; yet I would have you know that when the acid of anger, in sult or ill-nature comes in contact with it, such an eft'orveseence occurs as one never saw exemplified in ginger-pop, sod lit z or go la water. Women, when put out of tune, are like summer storms. At first they are cloudy?make no noise, but their thinking machines are busy in mo tion. Then comes the thunder?rip ping and tearing thunder! and the lightning that flashes from their eyes is enough to appall the stoutest of hearts. You tall back in wonder ment, if not perfectly amazed. Un willing to retreat further, and not having a chance or the courage to slip in a pitiful "boo!" you staud uud lake it like a hitched horse in a hail storm. When the wrath of the feminine i+ nearly expended, you pluck up cour age and are down on her with argu ment, reasoning and reprimand; but is ull this going to make her turn tail? not a bit of it. Having wasted her thunder ami lightning, she be gins torain; she knows what effect that will have. With impetuous showers she drenches the furious (ire that burns in your bosom, aud a freshness to every bud and blossom of feeling. Then you begin to give iu?she begins to clear off?her sky grows brighter, she goes to the ex pense of a smile, her whole horizon, landscape and la \\ scape, look charm ing, gay aud serene, and you-can't help giving her a kiss, and acknow ledging beat. So you see, my friends, that "the w omen are I ound to get the better of us. In them you behold the wild cat, lau b and dove. If they can ac complish nothing by letting loose their nutainc feline propensities, they give the. juvenile sheep a trial\and if that fails they rely upon the loving dove. With one of the three, they seldom or never fail to effect their purpose. They are called the weaker sex; but with what propriety it is hard for me to imagine, for I know that man}' of them are strong enough to lift a barrel of beer and drink out of the tap. They can draw like hor ses. They draw us to church?draw us to the theatre?draw us lrom our business?draw us into trouble?and draw us to?well, anywhere.?Ex. Tit AST I. ANTINO IN THE NlOITtT,-A gentleman anxious to ascertain the effects of transplanting by night, in stead of by day, made an experi ment, with the following results; He transplanted ten cherry trees while in bloom, commencing nt four o'clock iu the afternoon. Those transplanted during the daylight .-bed their blossoms, producing little or no fruit, while those transplanted iu the dark maintained their condi tion fully. He did the same with ten dwarf trees after the fruit was one-third grown. Those transplanted in the dny shed their fruit;those transplanted during the night per fected the crop ami showed no in jury from having been removed. With each of these trees he removed some earth with the roots. The in cident, if fully vouched for, and if a few similar experiments produce like result, will be a strong argu ment to horticulturists to do such work at night.? Fhtnil Cabinet.
