Conni KU rounds up a full half century of its existence, lt has long since passed beyond the experimental stage and demonstrated ils inherent strength as "tho survival of tile littost." Tho record made by Tin: Coi lill: li in tho past bas been one of great honor and usefulness. Wo feel justly proud of it, and inspired by a recollection of Hu past, we press forward to malu- the last year of tho century in which the paper saw its birth the very best in ils history thus far. Wo feel no hesitation in saying thal TllK COUKIKU never was better equipped in every respect for the publication of a lirst-elass weekly newspaper than at present. io expense or pains are spared in gathorii.g and giving our readers the nows, and all the news. Wo desire to thank a generous publie for liberal patronage in the past, and to solioit a continuance of it for thc future.

Last year's tax levy for Oconcc county was,") mills, as authorized by thc (louerai Assembly, bu, the County Cominiss i ou ors raised tho levy to mills. We think tho action of the County Commissioners illegal, and the small taxpayers were put at a disadvantage for the reason that they could not litigate thc extra tax without far more expense I han it would take to pay tho tax. Last year the Legislature authorized a lovy for ordinary county pm poses ol' L'l mills, court expenses t mill, roads I mill. p.iBt indebtedness ti mill-a total of :, mi UH. Hut the County Commissioners raised the road levy ' mill, making the total 54 mills. Tho Legislature last year changed I Inlaw which permit led the levy for road purposes, so that this year every person liable to road duty must work instead of pay tax. Still the County Commissioners ask for thc same tax this year as was i loviod last year. Wo do not think the request should be granted. They should not be allowed to abolish the special lax for jurors and witnesses. When persons arc forced, ?il considerable expenso, to attend court,' there should bo no doubt about then small fees being ?.aid promptly. Why do the commissioners wish to abolish this special tax-.' The only rea- ', son that can bo given is toallow them the direction of this fund as they may ? desire, without any statutory restraint. They evidently wish to hold it for the payment of jurors and witnesses or spend it otherwise, as they may sec li:. We do not think this discretion should be lodged j in thc board. The custom of holding i funds separately has worked so well and equitably that it should bc continued. Again, during the liscal year 1M>S we : had a levy of only h mills for ordinary county purposes, and it lacked only some five or six hundred dollars of paying' all ? expenses, while during t he year I SW a levy 1 of '^5 ailis was made for ordinary county purposes, and slill wc arc asked fora half mill for past indebtedness. Wh\-.' li might bo said it. was for indebtedness ol prior years. This is not the ease. Tho 1J mills levied t his yeal foi past indeiil ed ness more than pays all thal was behind when Hie present administration look eli a ige. And why should il lake .". I mills this j year'.' lt. took thal amount bist seat. 1 when theie was one mill for roads, which we do not have this year. The lax lev) should decrease as the assessment in creases; but this is not I he ease, foi both aro constantly on the int reuse. Kor years and years the levy for ord i nary county purposes has not bren i.? than:.} mills, and seldom that much. We would ask why ? mills this year for mill nary county purposes'.' Ki ve mills is entirely too much, and Hie people should demand that it. bc reduced. The lev) should .'dsn he divided as heretofore, and the hoard required lo hold the funds separately for di lloren! speedie purp >ses.

Mr. Allaway Died a Raving ManiacThirsty For Blood. Tho ('loenville Nows of January 7 say?: Coroner Jones, of Pickons county, who WAJ h?rC y os io rd ny, ?.wo an account of tho sad and tragic doath of tho Kov. A McSwain Attaway, a prominent young Methodist minister, who is a brother to tho Hov. Mr. Attaway, of Traveler's l'est, and son of tho Kev. John Attaway, of Williatnston. His doath occurred at his homo, six miles west of Dickens, on Thursday, and was caused by heart failure superinduced by a violent attack of insanity. It is thought that ho lost his mind by reason of the death about ton days ago of a son. Mrs. Attaway is now also insano and is being guarded. Both havo hoon treated in thu Stale hospital for the insane. Mr. Attaway's death was attended by harrowing circumstances. First ho went into tho yard anil killed his favorite dog by cutting its head olT with an axe. Next ho killed a hog in tho sanie way. Then he went into tho house and lay down. Suddenly ho was seized with a spasm and jumped out of lied and began lo destroy the furniture. Then ho sei/.ed his wife's clothing near her neck between his teeth. In her terror sho told her daughter to kill him. The da:.fitter had a carving knife in hand. "(lol him oil !" tho mother screamed lo thc chihl, frantic will: fright. "Cut bis throat willi tho knife: il is necessary if you don't lie will kill mo and all of you." "Oh no, munmin," replied the daughter, exhibiting remarkable courage and presence ol' mind: "thal needn't lie done. I'll just cut Ibo piece of dress loose he has in his mouth." This was done and immediately the Minoring niau fell and died. Mrs. Attaway became violently insane in a short lime. The coroner thought best, in the circumstances, to hohl an impicst. A verdict of death from natural cause was rendered.. Said She Clicked Him to Death. The Anderson Daily Mail of January 7 says: There seems to bc sad circumstances thal cluster around tho recent sudden deal li of Hov. McSwain Attaway in l'ickcns on the sib instant. Ile died at o'chuk in the morning and it is said that no one except his wife was in (he room al the tillie. Il is known thal Mr. Allaway and his wife were inmates of (he asylum several years tigo, bul they did not remain long and it was thought that a permanent cure had loen affected. Mrs. Allaway now makes thc statement, so il is said, that she choked her husbnml lo death, l'licnds think she is unbalanced mentally. A coroner's inquest was held over the body of Mr. Attaway on account of th" self-accusal ion of his wife. The veidicl was that "McSwain Attaway came t<> his death from heart failure, caused l r.un a lit." Mr. Allaway was .subject to lits and on the night of his death il is said a bitter (?nariel took place bet ween Hie minister and his wife. At thc coroner's inquest no evidence was brought out to show that any violence had been used. Mr. Allaway was a member of Hie Methodist conference and is connected with one ol' the bes! families in the county. lt has been demonstrated repeatedly in every State in the I nion and in many foreign countries thal Chamberlain's Cough ({citiedy isa certain preventive and cure tor croup, lt has become the universal remedy for thal disease.

Kibler, a prosperous wholesalo morchant of Newberry. Tho wedding took placo at tho homo of the bride's father, Mr. William II. Sheldon, tho senior elder of tho Kotroat church, who resides noar Tugaloo post oflico, twelve milos bolow Westminster. To tho swoot strains of Mondolsshon's wedding march, rondorod on tho piano hy Mrs. Cl undo Little, of Westminster, tho bridal party ontorod tho parlor, by couples, in tho following manaor: First oamo Miss Messie (ilonu, a uwoot and lovoly blonde of Anderson, with Mr. J.

Hull, of Fort Madison; then carno tho graceful form of Miss Flora Simpson, of Greenville, with Mr. Jay .Smith, of Anderson; next came Miss Fanuio Maxwoll, a beautiful and charming young lady of Walhalla, with Mr. A. H. Dorroh, of Greenville. That queenly young lady, Miss Veda Sheldon, who was tho maid of honor, preceded the bride and groom with Mr. lt. 1$. McCarty, of Newberry, who was ibo best man. Tho bridesmaids and groomsmen separated in tho parlor and took positions facing each other. Tho contracting parties stood noar tho entrance into too parlor and faced Kev. S. !.. Wilson, of Westminster, who, in oloquont and improBsivo language, united thom in the holy bonds of matrimony with the solemn service of the Presbyterian church. A hugo twig of nativo mistletoe was fastened to tho ceiling and suspended in the center of tho bridal party. Thc bride and bridesmaids were becomingly attired in colors appropriate to tho occasion and season. The groom and tlu> gentlemen attendants wore tho customary black suits. Congratulations were heartily bestowed upon the happy couple. F.xquisito tasto had boen displayed in preparing the wedding dinner, and a magnificent repast was enjoyed by all. Soldoni are guests at a wedding permit ted to partake of such an elaborate moni as was spread before the guests on this occasion. The (ablcs were arranged to accommodate forty at a time. The wedding presents, which provod tho affection and esteem held by tho friends of Mr. and Mrs. Kibler, attracted the attention of allon account of their beauty and usefulness. They were numerous, too-quite too Humorous to mention. Mrs. Kibler is one of Oconoo's highly cultured and accomplished young ladies, and will bo quite an acquisition to Newberry. Slio has taught school in this county tlie past eight or ten years, and her work as a preceptor bas always been of thc highest order. Mr. Kibler made a happy choice in selecting her as his w i fe. At about 5 o'clock on tho nf tor noon of the marriage tho happy couple went to Seneca, where they spent the night and boarded the Hine Kidge train on Wednesday morning for their future homo at Newberry.

Valuable Facts and Figures-South Carolina's I Part In tho War Botwoon ino Statos. Tho annual report of tho State historian, Col John P. Thomas, has hoon completed and placed in um hands Ol' (Governor McSweonoy for transmission to tho 1 I,og isla turo. It is a valuable historical document, full of information collected during tho years that have Intervened since the surrender at Appomattox, ami which is now accessible in condensed form for tho first timo. Col. Thomas has labored faithfully during the past yoar without compensai ion to comploto tho records and put them into shape, so that tho futuro historians will have facts and figures furnished hy tho survivors themselves for their guidance and instruction. Ho has prosecuted this work on lila own responsibility "as a voluntary contribution to the Confederate history of tho Stato, and especially to the causo of tho rank and filo of a noblo soldiery." The result of his year's labors will appear in tho annual report, and we givo herewith tho concluding statements, which aro replete with i. 'orest: Tho otllcial records in inc ollico of tho Stato Historian of Confedorato Records show that South Carolina put in tho armies of tho Confedorato Statos .'l l regimonta and foin battalions of infantrymi companios, seven regiments, one squadron and ono company ol ealvaryT.\ companies; and three regiments, two battalions and ID unattached batteries of artillory-55 companys--tho tabulation of tho rolls, including the field and stall", regimental and battallion, giving tho following result: Enrolled. Effective Infantry...,.44,328 518,311 Cavalry . !),0<i7 8,014 Artillery. 8,21!! 7,031 Total.01,008 f>3,00;? In addition, tho oflicial records show HO companies of .Stato troops or reserves, with an enrollment, including field and staff, of -f,011 enrolled, or 4,041 total effective-which is known to tie far below tho actual ligures, since t?tere were organized at least 12 regiments of reserves in addition to other State troops, It thus appears, from the figures of the rolls in tho Stato Historian's custody and duly filed, that South ('andina furnished for Confederate service 01,008 ofllcort* and men total enrolled, or *>:'.,00? total effective, and for State service 4,014 oillccrs and mon total enrolled, or 4,041 total off cot? ve. Making now tho moderate estimate, and tho estimate that thc truth of history warrants, that "> per cent, of Confederate and ii") per cent, of Stato troops aro not carried on the rolls, it further appears that South Carolina gave to the Southern Confederacy a total of 71,08.5 olliccrs and men enrolled, or 02,8.18 effective, as follows: Enrolled. Effective. Infantry. 40,.*>44 40,2211 Cavalry.?,?2(1 8,414 Artillery.8,830 8.018 Total.04,003 00,001 State troops enrolled I?, ISO, or effective 0,177 aggregating, tis above stated, 71,os:! officers and men on rolled, or 02,838 effective. The magnificent way and the rare unanimity with which South Carolina stood by ber colors and redeemed the plodgo of 1 silo of life ami honor is bes! illustrated by tho simple fact that tho voting population of the Slate was but 00,000 in 1800. Hut this does not limit the contribution of tho State. Entitled to equal honor with tho officers and men of the lino are those self-sacrificing and skillful mon who composed the engineer corps, the medical stall and the band of chap laius, as well as the quartermaster and commissary departments. Nor should we overlook the services of the signal corps; tho "Captains Courageous" of the blockade runners, and the Olliccrs and men that South Carolina gave to tho iron-cladsin thc harbor of Charleston and to Confederate States Navy, tho heroism of which is a mat 1er of history. In reviewing further tho contribution of this State tho cause of secession and State rights, must he taken in account the military skill of the general ofilcors from South Carolina in the Confederate armies, of whom appointed from South Carolina or from other Sta'.es, tho records show live lieutenant generals, six major generals, besides a long array of brigadier generala, colonels and majors. Of other commissioned, non-com m issi oneil ollicers and privates (anning under this head there is no record.

Carolina's contribution to tho cnuso to which BIIO waa plodded by tho ordinance of secession, passod Docombor 20, 1S00. 'ibero ia presenten next tito coatiy aacriiico laid upon tho altar of country by South Carolina in tho war ahoprocipi-1 tated and thon grandly breasted, receiving her full share of tho bery bolts 01 battle from ism to the ona. Tho report of tho State Historian, laid before tho General Aasoinbly, shows the j deaths in battle or from wounds, the j deaths from disease and in prison, and tho wounded to bo as follows: Infantry .17,018 Cavalry. 1,1(17 Artillery. . 710 making a total of auch casualties to bo 20,101. But this, owing to tho imperfection of somo of the rolls reported, does not give tho full showing. As to tho 371 infantry company rolls, 20 contain no report of I "died in battle or from wounds''; 13 no report of "died from disease"; 107 no roport of "died in prison", and 15 no report of "wounded". As to tho 50 artillery company rolls, 22 contain no roport of "died in battle or from wounds" ; 25 no report of "died from diseaso"; 40 "no roport of died in prison", and 27 no roport of "wounded". Applying now tho rules of averages to these Incomplete rolls, it appears that tho infantry casualties may fairly bo put at 21,140; the cavalry at 1,7:10, and the artillery at 1,3011, making a total of 21,215, classified as follows: IMA NTH v.

Making the "total effective" in each arm of the service the basis of said percentage, tho result would be: Infantry, ? >'2 7-10 per cont ; cavalry 20 7-10 per cent : artillery, 17 per cent. That is, the casualties of the infantry in war were more than one-half of the total olTcclive: of tho cavalry moro than one-fifth, and of the artillery more than one-sixth. Truly a costly sacrillcc, and one freely made, of the best blood of the commonwealth ! So much, concisely presented, for the personal sacrifico of South Carolina in tho Held of arms in 1801-05. Moro eloquent than words aro the ligures herc given - ligures based upon records and the logical inferences deducible therefrom. The patriotism of the contribution and the pathos of the self-sacrifice make up the story of tho fame of this commonwealth. And when, further, there aro added to this military heritage South Carolina's contribution of statesmanship and the Oddity of her noble womanhood in tho years of tho war, there is exhibited a demonstration <>f devotion to principle in scorn of cons?quence, and in obedience to duty, that challenges the world's admiration. The part enacted by Soutli Carolina in the war between the. States is her glory and her complete vindication. Having a Groat Kim on Chamberlain's Cough lteniedy.
