We would call the attention of our

Ofii medical friends of the county

abundant success.
We direct the attention of our
readers to the advertisement of Mr.

Watches and clocks are also neatly
repaired by him at reasonable rates.

near Jamison's Turnout, hursted on
Saturday evening last, blew out the
furnace, passed through the side of

For Mayor.
Editor Orangcburg Democrat;
As tbo tituo for our town election
is near, I deem it not improper to
write you a short communication in
regard to the candidate of the peoplo
for Mayor. All will readily admit
that the chief executive officer of our
town should he a man respected by
both races of our citizens; one. to
whom all may look for exact justice
in the administration of public af
' He should be a nuan of nerve and
decision, not fearing to net when the
public good demands action, and car
ing nothing for ephemeral public
opinion, when,adverse to him, so long
as he TlHoius that ho is right. Every
community has not such a munasj
Orangeburg is moro fortunate than
mauy others are, she has a raau who
possesses every qualification for mak
ing an eflloient, acceptable and up
right Mayor. Messrs. Editors, we
have reference to the present incum
bent, Hon. J. W. Mose ley. We write
this without having ever spoken to
Mr. Moscley in regard to the Mayor
alty of our town.
Wo know that it is not in unison
with his feelings to be the incumbent
of any public office, but we hope that
he will again do, us he often did in
the past, sacrifice personal interest**
and pleasures for liio public good,
and serve us for at least another
term in the capacity of Mayor. W.
Wants to be a Martyr.
Editor Orangeburg Democrat:
It is not surprising that the indig
nation of the people was so generally
aroused by the recent letter from Or
angcburg to the Tribune ; but some
think it would have been better to
pass it without notice. TJicrc arc
men who come here with the determi
nation to be made martyrs of in some
way. There are so many such at
home, men of small calibre, that the
chances of being made notorious arc
few and far between. But this is a
fruitful field. A page or two of mis
representation is gobbled up by the
many enthusiasts there, and the quite I
ordinary man becomes the Lilliputian
giant at once.
The citizens of Orangcburg cannot I
do'the author of that letter n greater
favor, or please him better than to
keep such matters before the public.
If Grant or some other Republican
should be elected President, there is
no doubt this man would fill some fat
office. The poor ni?rtyr of Orange
His evidently chosen position here
uow, puts one in mind of the old lady
with life preserver on hoard the
steamer during a gale, "Do some one
blow me up ! prav blow mc up." B.
As we predicted in our last issue,
it has been a busy lime with Mr.
Korljohn. Having received a large
consignment of Notions, Dry Goods,
Bools, Shoes, Hats, tfce., he threw
them on the market at unpreccdent
, ed prices, consequently large crowds
were in attendance, and largo sums
of money changed hands as the bet
ting men sny, but this is no game of j
chance It is true this store receives
most of the cash money spent in the
town, but buyers receive the value
therefrom two-fold. Strange must be
the piece of humanity who visits this
busy mart and goes away dissatisfied
with goods, prices, proprietors or as
sistants. Mr. K. has a full stock and
receives daily new additions. It
would bo impossible for us to predict
what next will be ode red at this
place, when huge family bibles as
sold by traveling agents for twelve
