As an evidence that the drought is
ended we will state that the branches
and creeks are once more filling up
opd running, that the river is rising
and that the fishermen of Orange
burg are again happy.
The fino residence on New Street,
belonging to Mr. J. W. Patrick, has

Mr. A. F. II. Dukes, of Branch
ville, is preparing .to enlarge hi? store
and otherwise arrange for a largo
stock of fall and winter goods. Mr.
Pukes is evidently one of the most
enterprising merchants of our sister
town and is determined^ to keep
abreast with the times.
"Uno" writing from St. Matthews,
under date July 30, says : "Mr. Win.
Shumakcr, who has been clerking for
Mr. J. W. Buycke, of our town, died
of typhoid fever at his father's resi
dence, about thiitecn miles from tho
village. He was a member of the
Lewisvillo Baptist Church."
We are informed by Mr. Webb
Bull, agent for Mr. Hess Andrews,
that he has sold from the fourth of
July to this date about 2,817 water
melons at an average price of tCjii
cents per melon. Two hundred and
eighty dollars is no mean sum to be
realized by one wan from the sale of
such a crop,
Our enterprising young merchant,
Mr. A. B, Walker, invites the.citi/.cns

A Memphis paper announces the
fact that a beautiful young lady, the
only daughter of wealthy parents, bad
eloped with tho editor of a country
newspaper. We feel better since read
ing the above, as it indicates that the
young ladies have at last recovered
from the coachman mania and aspires
to the nobility again,
Ojjr friend Theodore Kohn's Dry
Goods' Emporium has become so
well known and popular that even
the beasts of the field know of its ex
istence, as was attested on Wednes
day morning last by a visit of a calf
to bis store, whether in search of a
companion or dry-goods tho Demo
crat is unable to say.
The Hampton and Junior Base Ball
Clubs hnd another fciendiv tilt on
Thursday, tho 25th ult., in which the
Juniors were beat by a score of 20 or
18 in favor of tho Hamptons. The
game was hotly contested all the way
through, but the fates seemed to be
against the Juniors and the Hamp
tons came off victors as above stated.
At the last meeting of tho St.
Paul's Sunday School Missionary So
ciety, Messrs. Willie Stokes, of Ten
nessee, and Fred Dibble, of our town,
delivered effective addresses before
the children. Mr. Stokes has since
left for his homo in Tennessee, where
he will enter upon his duties as teach
er of the youth of bis adopted State.
The Rev. Wm. Chaplin after ser
vices at Ebenezer Church recently
drove to his destination and left bis
buggy under a tree. During dinner
a streak of lightning went for tho
buggy, and after making kindling
wood of one shaft went into the
ground. How would the Reverend
gentleman have fared if ho had not
Oya thanks aro due Mr. A. Jour
oaln for a fine sample of his varioties
of grapes, including the Concord,
Hartford Prolific, Isabella, Delaware
and tho Perkins. We pronounce the
latter the best table grape, thin skin,
tender and delicate flavor. Mr. Jour
dain, wo learn, has quite a collection
of grapes, fruit trees and flowers of
tke most improved varieties.
We deeply regret to announce the
death of Mrs. C. C, Wightman, which
occurred on last Thursday night at
tho house of her relative, Mr. S. R.
Mcllicuamp. We learn that Mrs.
Wightman was an invalid for some
time and was on a visit to our town
with the hope of restoring in somo
measure her health. Her remains

A match game of base b#ir,ff.as

Tho Athletics gained an.easy victory,
as our boys wcro.uppracticed, and be
sides, several of ;tbe .best ,mon on
their nine were ftbjjcnt. [Under the
circumstances wo think they did very
well. The score stood 34 to 20 in
favor of tho Athletics.
Photographs.?Mr. F. A. Schif
fley will again open his photographic
,t.ent in our town in about oue week
or ten days. He has made a tour
through the Santec section and from
thenco to Georges' Station in Collo
ton. Our pcoplo will take due no
tice of bis return in our midst, and
those wishing good photographs or
ferrotypes had bolter avail them
selves of the opportunity.
yfji nto glad to ,bo able to inform
our farmers that the sugar refinery of
Mr. Geo. II. Cornelson is well on its
way to completion. A part .of the1
machinery is already on the ground,
and the balance will arrive next
week. Mr. Cornelson assures us
that he will be ready in full time for
the maturing crop. Wo hope this en
terprise will receive the patronage it
deserves. Thorn arc un.told benefits
in it for the farmer.
The following gentlemen constitute
the Board of Health : Dr. A. S. Hy
drick, Chairman, Messrs. Jqjin Lucas.,
John A. Zoigler, F. B. Livingston,
W. II. Perryclear, J. J. Str.eot, J. M.
Brunson, T. C. I;Iubbell, and Dr. T.
R. Malonc, Clerk. An immediate,
thorough, searching and rigid inspec
tion will be had at once and it be
comes the duty of the citizens to
.clean up, and bo prepared for a favor
able report from the Board.
The "young folks'' of the town had
a "sociable" the other evening at the
residence of Captain Jeffords, and we
understand they had a delightful
time. A representative of the Demo
ckat tried to get bis name on the list
but was promptly ruled out by the
managers of the affair as being too
"old," and lie retired consoling him
self with the fact that "Ye Okie
Folkcs" would have a concert soon,
at which ho would be entitled to a
full hand.
We copy the following paragraph
from the Greenville News; "Wo un
derstand that Messrs. llowell &
Wicnges, of, Fort Motte, S. C, have
patented a combination or detacha
ble hoc, rake, &c, which is said to
bo very unique and tasty in design,
surpassing anything of the kind ever
brought out. They are arranging for
their manufacture, and expect to have
them on the market soon. They have
styled their invention tho "Dixie," a
name wo love. We wish them suc
cess in their enterprise,"
Another large consignment of
goods received at Kortjohn's Bed
Hive Store on Thursday, and as usu
al a genuine rush took place, every
one being anxious to got the first
chance at the bargains offered. We
were amused at tho general confusion
and mixture of these consignments,
and wonder how and where Mr.
Kortjohn's agents pick up the novel
tics shipped, and the difference in
the style and oharncter of the goods.
For instance, bibles and novels come
in one package, cashmere and jeans,
tinware and dress goods, crockery
and ribbons, glassware and clothiug,
ladies' fans and ink, pistols and
hymn books, but by the master hand
of Mr. Kortjohn and bis assistants
they arc 60on arranged in their differ
ent department, and out of appalling
disorder come many things of beauty
and great bargains,
One of the most melancholy deaths
it has been our painful duty to re
cord was that of Mr. Irvin A. Till,
which occurred at his home in Or
ange Township on last Saturday.
While roaching a mule a few days
previous ho took a chew of tobao2o,
and immediately after be felt a prick
ing sensation in the throat. Soon
the glands of the neck began to en
large, and a low form of inflamma
tion insucd, followed by Septicaemia
and death was tho final result. Mr.
Till was about forty years of age and
up to the circumstances mentioned
was a strong, healthy man, The fun
eral services wore performed by Rev.
S. T. Mailman, who preached a sin
gularly appropriate sermon on the
occasion, He was buried in tho fam
ily grave yard with Mnsonio honors
in the prosence of an unusually large
concourse of bis friends and neigh
bors. Mr. Till leaves, a wife and
several small children to mourn their
loss, but, being at his death a mem
ber of the Knights of Honor, with
tbo certainty of a competency suffi
cient to keep them from want.

tEdftor. Qrangf!ibiir? J?emQcrat :
Having Been in the .Orange:burg
JTimes last week a communication
proposing the re-election of the pre
sent isc^ni?siitfi of the offices cf 2>?a**
or and Aldermen, aud being one who
opposes tbeir re-election as a whole,
with your permission will give a rea
! son for objecting. Of course what I"
say I do not ,ii}te,?cl as personal, but
to refer to tfiem ps public servants,
whose actiob? I feel at liberty to.crit
icise. By law we aro entitled to one
Mayor and four Aldermen, but it has
been the practice with the good peo
ple of Orangeburg for the last six
years to content themselves (for
what reason this Deponent ,sayoth
not) with, one Mayor, three Aldermen
and one ?gurc-head. It's true these'
figure-heads have been respectively
an Abraham, a Washington, and a
Charles I; but they have retrograded
in intellect and aro not what their
nnulcs years ago would have signified.
This is my first and greatest objec
tion to the re-election of tho present
Council. I am fully persuaded that
it will lake five good heads &o run
this government of ours, and the;
lack of one for the last six years may
account for the complaints against
Council. We, therefore, suggest that
we have no moro Jigure-heads on the
Board of Aldermen for policy sake,
but that we be prompted by principle
and place men in nomination with
bxajrm ajud experience capable of dis
charging the duties of the cilices.
Let us run straight in by running
"straighout-out," which is the "re
deeming Southern policy."
We want a Council more in prncti
eal sympathy with the Fire Depart
ment than any we b^rc bad for years,
and one that will radically change
the present police system .which we
view as a practical failure. Strang
gers characterize the town as the
"noisest they ever visited." Where
the fault lies exactly we do not know ;
it must, however, bo with the Council
aud policemen.
We want an Alderman for the mid
dle portion of the town, which is not
represented, aud has no one whose
duty it is to have the laws executed,
there being at present tbreo al the
railroad end and two at the Brough
ton-street end of town.
Jn short, wo want a public-spirited
Council, one that will perfect and
keep in order pld and good enter
prises before undertaking now ones ;
sec that the Fire Department pros
pers, and give us a police system
that will insure to decent people the
use of their piazzas at night. We had
hoped that the truthful wail of "Sam
Sloppy" would bring about a reform ;
but alas 1 poor Orangeburg, always
"behind time."
We agree with the correspondent
that the nominations should be made
by the Democratic Club, out he
waives party principles when
he proposes that the Democratic
Club nominate the "present incum
bents." Joe.

Editor Orangeburg Democrat:
It is high time for our farmers to
prepare for our next Annual County
Fair, to be held in Orangeburg on
j the 20th, 80th and 31st days of Octo
ber next.
With tho farmers and stockholders
of the Agricultural Association rests
the suocesB or failure of the exhibi
tion, and it may be added, the chief
I benefits of the highest success accrues
I to them. Thoso who have sufficient
interest should hasten to order prem
ium list and regulations by which
they may bo greatly aided in their
endeavors to promote tho uscfullncsa
of the Fair. With suitable effort the
exhibition of 1879 may be made Ibe
grandest and most profitable in re
sults of any previously held in the
county. The Directors of the Assc
elation are exerting themselves to
make the coming Fair an honor and
p-' lo to our county. Let us hope
then that tho farmers and citizens of
our grand old county will second the
efforts of the managors of our Fair
Association by preparing for exhibi
tion the products of the farm, garden
and orchard, to attend themselves
and to urge their neighbors ?o attend ;
also to bring their wives and chil
dren. Let us have a grand gathering
from every corner of our county;
and at tho same time we want our
iriends of our neighboring counties
to come and see what we arc doing
in Orangeburg in advancing the ag
ricultural and material interest of
our county. Premium list can be ob
tained by applying to John L. I leid t
man, Orangeburg, S. C.
W. F. B^kton.
At a mooting of tue City Council,
held on tho 30th ult., tho Board of
Health was requested to thoroughly
re-inspect the yards and promises of
the town and report to the Mayor on
'next Monday. The .petition for a
Marketwas referred to Messrs. Albert
gottj, Sain and Izlar to ascertain the
(;prpbable .cost.of erecting a suitable
structure and the. purchasing of a lot
for said purpose and to ascertain
whether the ta-x-na??r? .of .tho town
would recommend the additional .tax
for that purpose. The trees in the
middle of Railroad Avenue between)
Russell Street and the depot were or-'
dcred removed. Managers of eiec-j
tion were appointed,, due notice of
which >\ill he given at the proper
time. {The town pump tjvas ordered
to be repaired or a new pump obtain
ed. The County Commissioners it
was thought should have an elevator,
or pump in tho weil/Qn the.Court
House Square.
Wii: think the management of the I
South Carolina Railroad by Receiver f
Fisher is most excellent, and if those'
most interested would keep him at its
head after it passes out of his hands
as Receiver, wc think the road would
soon become valuable property in"
stead of dead capital as it now is.
Mr. Fisher is a ?rst-c-l&as business
man, and understands ,the manage
ment of railroads thoroughly.
