A ride through a portion of Concord Town
ship last week gave us a glimpse of a varied
assortment of grass, and some very fi ne crops.
The corn was down on the swamp and out of j
sight but was said tobe good. Most of the
cotton on the road was' well worked and
looked well. The Messrs. Jones bare fine cot
ton. Mr. J. I. Brogdon could brag over his
crop if be were not so modest. Mr. J. G.
White has bis crop in fine order, as he always
has; Mr. Wilder's also Jook.-^ well. The
farmers are complaining of too much rain,
and are sighing for dry weather.
Oar friends dcwn that way all seem to be-v
lieve in the utility of geese in working cotton
?almost every Seid having a large bunch.
One gentleman, however, said that since tbe
rains had given the grass such a start his
geese had become thoroughly demoralized,
and had stopped work, evidently believing it
a waste of time.
A colored infant child in Concord Town
ship was found dead in bed, Monday morn
ing, 8th instaut. Its death was supposed to
fcave been caused by being overlaid by its
mother, and it was buried near by. Friday
afternoon the Coroner was informed of the
occurence and be visited the neighborhood to
ascertain the facts, and from the neighborhood
talk, it was evident that some foul play was
suspected. He therefore held an inquest Sat
urday which resulted in the verdict of acci
dental death.
We will say jor,t bere that the burial of a
body, where death has occurred from other
than natural causes, is a violation of law,
arrd subjects all engaged in this violation :o
indictment, aad there has been so much indif
ference to the law in thi3 particular that we
think the Coroner will be compelled to bring
such violators of law to punishment.
Those who know better ought to inform
their more ignorant neighbors in this matter,
and thus save a heavy expense to the County.

One of Our Needs.
The Court ITouse Square needs work, and
we think it ought to have it. Standing in
the Post Office last Wednesday morning while
the heavy rain storm was falling, every path
leading out to Main Street was flooded. There
was no possible chance of getting to the street
dry shod, and it occurred to us then that
some improvements might be made by the
County Commissioners which would add to
the appearance and convenience of that
A friend standing by suggested that a raised
side walk commencing at the Bank should
rundown the South side of the square, an
other should pass in front of the Post Office,
while the necessary one should lead directly
out to the street.
We will make no suggstions how it shall
be done, as we are perfectly willing to leave
that to the Commissioners. It is very evident
that raised walks leading from the street to
the various offices in the square are badly
While talking about the square we will
again refer to the great need of a well in the
rear of the Court House. It is needed as a
fire well, and also as a supply for drinking

missioners would have nothing more to do
with it than giving their consent.

The Local Paper.
The following from the Keowee Covrier is
good reading :
"You may be able to get a large city week
ly, filled with murders, scandal cases, cock
fights, etc., for the same money that you pay
for your local paper, or less, bat these city
weeklies never advertize your county and
make your property valuable. They do not
help along your schools and churches ; they
say nothing of you and have, no interest in
yon. A local paper is a great advantage to
any town or community. Stand by your
home paper, for it is ever on the lookout for
your interest."

Dunlap's "Champion" Stylographic
A person who has never used a Stylo
graphic Pen, cannot possibly know its value
or convenience, or he would certainly pro
cure one at any price. We have used a Pen,
presented to us by Mr. L. E. Dunlap, of Bos
ton, Mass., for over two years, and we now
intend to send for one of the/ new "Cham
pion" Pens recently patented by Mr. Dunlap,
as we are advised that it contains valuable
improvements; one of the improvements
being a compound spiral spring formed from
a tube of hard rubber, while other Stylo
graphic Pens have fine gold wire or metalic
springs, which soon rot and corrode.
This newly invented Pen is unanimously
endorsed by the trade as giving perfect satis
faction to their customers, and maay say, it
is the only Strlographic Pen worth having at
any price. *
In order to snccessfully introduce to the
public this new and valuable Pen, the manu
fatta rers, Dunlap Stylograph Co., 296 Wash
ington Street, Boston, Mass., offer (for a
short time only) to send by return mail, to
any address in the U. S., a Champion Pen, 6
months supply of ink, and a beautiful gold
mounted pencil, on receipt of tbe price of the
Pen, which is $2.00 each for plain, and $2.50
each for gold mounted.
The Champion Pen is the same io style and
finish as' Pens sold everywhere at $3.50 and

"Haveyou any malaria here?" asked a
lady who was looking at a rural boarding
place for her family. "We1!," said the land
lady, "we hain't got none jist now; folks
haven't asked for it; but we'll get it for your
family if you want it." Most folks get mala
ria without wanting it. To get rid of its nox
ious effects, use Brown's Iron Bitters. Mrs.
S- R. MacDonald, New Haven, Conn.', says,
"I suffered from malaria for nearly six year3.
Brown's Iron Bitters cured me completely."

There is one coon and two tigers in den nnm
ber three, and they are of the mixed breed.
Some persons have become jffended at tbe
expression "mixed breed," so will explain.
Mixed breed consists of whiskey, turpentine,
tobacco juice and some other ingredients.
One party got angry because he thinks I said
one of the mixed breed fell out of thechimney.
I don't think it reads that way ; but even if
I had said so, it would have been true for it

had not advertised himself no one would have

The Greenville ?cics, we think, ad

man Dibble for the unbecoming man oer in
which he recently treated Mayor Courte

Dot sound to us like the manners of a
dignified and honored Congressman.
We leave it for others to say if it does
not sound more like the manners of a
certain class of newspaper scribblers
who, in the absence of the necessary
ability to meet an adversary in a manly
and honorable discussion, may be com
pelled to resort to cowardly insinuations
or to the utterance of baseless assertions
in a shameless attempt to substitute
braggadocia for argument, and who may
perforce act naturally the role of the
bully, rather than to make the effort to
assume the character and manners of
the dignified and courteous gentleman.
Cure for Piles.
Piles are frequently preceded by a sense of
weight in the back, loins and lower part of
the abdomen, causing the patient to suppose
he has some affection of the. kidneye or neigh
boring organs. At times, symptoms of indi
gestion are present, flatulency, uneasiness of
the stomach, etc. A moisture, like perspira
tion, producing a very disagreeable itching,
after getting warm, is a common attendant.
Blind, Bleeding and Itching Piles yield at
once to tbe application of Dr. Bosanko's Pile
Remedy, which acts directly upon the parts
affected, absorbing the Tumors, allaying the
intense itching, and effecting a permanent cure.

There is perhaps no disease so prevalent as

loss of flesh, a feeling of fullness or weight in
the stomach, occasionally nausea and vomit

with a sensation of heaviness or giddiness,
irregularity of bowels, low spirits, sleepless
