A water famine is bei.ug pretty
generally discussed throughout the

find it extremely difficult to get water

quite an encouraging repoit of the
rapid progress our little sister town
is making in improvements and busi

We had hoped that the mad dog
plague, was ended, but it seems that
the number of these animals is fear
fully on the increase in many sections
of the county. Better kill every dog

Prof. Henry Morley, in his recent
lecture on "newspapers" said that the
newspaper was the mirror of Society,
and that it was of no use for people
to break the mirror because they did
not like the look of their nose ; but he
trusted that none of his hearers de
sked to be the editor of a journal that
gave .publicity to the moan concep
tions .concernjng life, or was a mere
medium for small talk.

Years ago when the middle-aged
men of to day were boys, Horace
Greeley wrote: "It is a great sou reo
of consolation to us, that when the
public shall be tired of us as an edit
or, we can make a salisfrctory liveli
hood at setting type or farming; so
that, while our strength lasts, ten
thousand blockheads, taking offense
at some article they Jo not under
stand, could not drive us into the
poor bouse.*'
Dr. Dubois, from the north has
moved into his new and handsome res
idence next door to Hon. C. B. Glov
er's on Russell St. Dr. Dubois is
quite an accession to our community,
and we wish him all the happiness of
a Southern home and all the benefits
of our delightful climate. Orange
burg delights to greet and wel
come every northern gentlemeu of
this type and we wish a thousand more
would come.
Regulations have been issued from
the Postoflice Department, by which
gold and silver coin may be sent
through the mails as fourth class mat
ter, at one cent per ounce. To secure
greater certainty of delivery the same
may be registered for an additional
fee of ten cents for each package.
This system will bo a great accom
modation to the public, especially in
shipping to points where there are no
money order offices.
Our citizens throughout the coun
ty have taken advantage of the pre
sent cold snap to butcher their hogs
which remained on hand. In consid
eration of the large number of hogs
slaughtered, we hope the season will
continue long enough to convert eve
ry pound of meat into sweet bacon.
Those who were unfortunate enough
to kill before Christmas have lost a
large portion of the meat intended
for the year's consumption.
Our citizens have enjoyed quit can
exciting season of amusements and
business pleasantly blended. Tbc
agents of Dr. Flagg's Liver and
Stomach Fads huvo furnished their
full quota of fun in comic songs and
street lectures ; Prof. Stookey in rope
walking and fancy antics ; while the
dignity of the Court has not, in the
slightest, been disturbed or its atten
tion diverted from the business of the j
terra.
The high prices, at which cotton
has been sold duriug the present sea
son, will, wo fear, induce many far
mers to increase their acreage and
purchase of fetilizers at credit prices.
It is almost a certainly that cotton
cnunot sell at the present prices next
fall, and if low prices prevail the
same cry of hand times will be ex
perienced then as heretofore. More
caution in planting and less wild
speculation in fetilizers is the better
policy.
Foil the Teeth.?Many of the
powders and pastes now in the mar
ket contain ingredients like pumice
stone, charcoal, &c, which ought
never to bo used for the purpose.
The Saponaceous Tooth Powder is
warranted to contain nothing in the
least injurious, and has no equal for
Its purpose, as its llavor is pleasant,
is perfectly soluble in the mouth, and
contains nothing gritty or rough for
the teeth. For sale by Dr. J. G.

A Whale.?A few days ago one of
these monsters of the deep was dis
covered within the bur of Charleston
harbor. Steps were immediately taken
to capture the Arctic stranger, and
were executed to the complete satis
faction of all concerned. The animal
is about half grown and measures
forty feet and four inches in length
and ten feet, two inches through the
body, and if properly managed ought
to make about seventy barrels of oil
and eight hundred pounds of bone.
Vick's Floral Guide.?This work
is before us, and those who send live
cents to James Vick, Rochester, N.
Y., for it will be disappointed. In
stead of getting a cheap thing, as the
price would seem to indicate, they
will receive a very handsome work of
100 pages, and perhaps .000 illustra
tions?uot cheap., but elegant illustra
tions, on the very best of ealandered
paper, and as a set off to the. whole.,
an elegant Colored Plate that we
would judge cost twice the pi ice of
the book.
Hill's Hepatic Panacea. ?The Liv

whole human system, as it controls
the life, health and happiness of man.
When it is disturbed in its proper
action all kinds of ailments are the
natural results. The digestion of
the food, the movements of the heart
and blood, the action of the braiu and
nervous system, are all immediately
connected with the workings of the
liver. To keep the liver in a healthy
condition take Hill's Hapalic Pan

"In Maiden Meditation, Fancy
Free."?We learn that two young
ladies who, to while away the time,
amused themselves the other day by
coming down to figures to see what
their chances were of catching a hus-j
baud in Camdcn. First of .all they
didn't think any of the fellows around'
here were wo: th catching. However,
they were enumerated?both sides,
ladies and gentlemen?and they stood
as follows: Young men, 26; old
baclielors, 17; widowers 10?total
53, Young ladies, 48; old maids,
53; widows, 13?total, 114. Thus
it will be seen that they more than
double the number of meu. These
figures disgusted them, and they are
now thinking seriously of taking ad
vantage of leap year. The above,
which we clip from the Ctmden Jour
nal, certainly indicates a bad state of
affairs in our sister town, and the
only remedy we can sec is in immi
gration?to Orangeburg for instance,
where the men outnumber the ladies
three to one.
Blaine may have fits in the Pine
Tree State because his party was
thwarted ; ho may rave and foam at the
mculh ; he may swear himself hoarse ;
but the fact still lcmains that C. D.
Korijohn keeps on in the even tenor
of his way. Undauuted by the pres
sure of hard times ; undismayed by
the predictions of the chronic grum
blers that surround us, he continues
to order goods and sell them at half
their value. Others may wear long
faces, but C. D, Jforljohn and his
right bower, Mr. .J S. Albcrgotti. the
courteous and polite gentleman, have
ever a smile for all they^feeet. Why?
Because at C. D. Korljohn's store
the}' know that mnuy hearts are daily
made to rejoice with exceeding joy.
They arc conscious of the fact that
no one, no not one, has, or ever can,
undersell them'. What would Orange
burg be without Kortjoha's auctions?
And what would the people do with
out Ins magnificent store? Shake
hands with Mr. K. befoie you leave
town.
Prof. Frank Stookey, of the tight
rope and fancy antic persuasion, vis
ited our town on Monday and Tues
day, and exhibited hisskill as a rope
walker in the costume of a woman,
u in?u, and with his feet incased in a
cheese box. Quite a crowd of curi
ous people of all colors and sexes as
sembled on on the ground, where an
inch and a half rope had been stretch
ed from the top of the Courthouse to
the top of Mr. D. Louis' store. The
distance was about fifty yards and
the height about forty feet. The
performer appeared on the top of Mr.
Louis* store at four o'clock Monday
afternoon and with nothing hut a bal
ance pole in his hands walked the en
tiro length of the rope. On Tuesday
evening the same feat was performed
in a woman's costume while the wind
was blowing briskly. The crowd was
also treated with various somersaults
and hanging by the neck and other
tancy antics in mid air, artistically
performed we suppose, but certainly
an outrageous trilling with life and
the Providence of (Jed. Our bet
ter feelings deplore a state of society
that can unblushing tolerated, much
less enjoy, such an exhibition of fool
bardiness and applaud it.
The Presbyterian congregation held
a special service for their Sunday
School children on last Sunday after
noon at half-past three o'clock, to
which all the schools of the town were
invited to attend. Alter prayer by
Rev. Dr. E. Cooke, of the Methodist
Episcopal Church, and a beautiful
song appropriate to the occasion, the
Superintendent, Capt. John A. Ham
ilton, caused the bible class to recite
the creed, and another of little, boys
and girls to undergo a most searching
examination in the catechism. Anoth
er song introduced a class of live
girls, of about twelve or fourteen
years of age, who recited t}iirty-one
pages of printed matter, the whole of
the Westminster Shorter Catechism,
without more than hesitating for an
answer. Some Christian gentleman
at the North, feeling the importance
of this series of qnestions arid an
swers to the j'oung, promised to pre
sent any child, who might master it,
with a beautiful copy of the Bible.
Superintendent Hamilton will report
the dames of these fire little girls as
having performed the task. The en
tire recitations by the children were
most creditable ami reflected becom
ing praise upon their affectionate and
worthy Superintendent. Rev. O. A.
Darby closed the exercises by an in
structive talk to the schools upon the
great Importance of little things.
Our Presbyterian friends have a fine
Sunday School and are evidently
molding characters that will wield a
powerful influence upon the church in
the future.
