Sud drunkenness and rowdyism.
Three-fourths of the men carry guns
to those places. This correspondent
,was informed that at a negro frolic
??eKr this place recently, there were
not less than 30 guns leaning against
the inside wall of the house. At the
frolic on the night of the 27th inst.,
where and when Cupid Lowry shot
Sam Taylor to death, there was a
large number of shotguns. The three
Xiowry brothers ail had shot guns, and
some accusation made .against one of
this Lowry family brought about the
death.
Cupid Lowry is still a fugitive from
Justice, but may yet be apprehended.
There are within eight miles of this
place 40 or 50 families of Lowry ne?
groes. There are around this place
five Robert Lowrys and fo?r Sam

DARK CORNER.
Dark Corner, January 6.-I hope
yon and readers have enjoyed a mer?
ry Christmas, and are now enjoying
the blessing of the New Year. So now
Jet us resolve to do our whole duty
"for 1906 to all men, ourselves, our
God and our country, so that we can
look back^ when it is passed with no
regrets for time misspent.
There is but little news to relate.
Some farmers have commenced to
clear off ditch banks, etc., and are
speaking of starting their plows Soon.
So I expect it will not be long before
gee-haw will be heard on all sides.
Those drowned negroes I mentioned
in my last were named Moses, Reese
and Dubose. There were three of
them in a boat, were lost on the wa?
ter and were drinking. It is supposed
that Dubose? was drunk and was lying
down and Reese lay down, then made
a Quick turn over, which turned the
boat over throwing all into the water.
The third one was a small boy, who
managed to get on a log, where he
stayed until rescued. I understand
that Dr. P. M. Sally says that the
boy will go crazy from fright and hav?
ing to stay there on that log so long
in the night exposed to the rain an J
cold. They were drowned not far
from Milford (the old Manning man?
sion).

father's, J. B. McIntosh, Sr.
I took a trip last Thursday to South?
west Manchester to see my old friend,
Mr. R. S. Bartlette. Dick is getting
-
old, but he and his son Robert are
libing at home and boarding at the
same place. They had six fine porkers
hanging on a pole and have more to
follow. They make their own corn
and raise plenty of hogs to keep and
to sell, which is pretty good for an old
Reb. But I did 'not see any Mrs. B
there. The old man can be excused,
but Boss ought to get him a wife.
Everything .here is calm and serene
this morning.
