IurL,n;ATE MONEY ORDERS.
None Will be Issued In Future Until
the Expiration of 60 Days
The rost-Offlco Department has been put
to considerablo trouble lately by the issu
ance of duplicate-money-orders, for those
alleged to have been lost," misfiirected, or
possibly stolen by dishonest clerks. All du
plicates hare to be issued by the department
here, and last year appiloation was made for
the issuance of 30,00 Buoh ofders. The De
partment finds that in many cases both the
original and the duplicate have been paid,
and in ecme cases suit has had'to be brought
to recover the money. In order to obviate
puch entanglements if tfce future, First As
sistant rostmaster-Ofljteral Joneg, at the
solicitation of the AutUtor, has decided not
to issue duplicates in tkeutu're, until after
the expiration of sixty days from tho date of
the original money-order, thereby affording
time for the receipt at the Auditor's office of
tho money-order statements of paying post
masters, and an opportunity to examine such
statements to ascertain whether the original
orders have been paid.
This may work a hardship in some cases,
among those who can ill-afford to wait ths
period of sixty days, on account of the mis
takes of their correspondents, but it is held
at the Fost-Offlee Department that the gen
oral good of the whole serrice demands the
enforcement of the new regulations.

floo'l Times at Anderson.
The lmsiue8 prospect for the county
and citv of Anderson is decidedly bet
ter than it has heretofore been at any
time in two or three years. The far
mers have fine crops of corn, cotton,
pens, cane, hay, and, in addition,
many hogs have been raised. Much
fruit has been canned. The merchants
could not supply tbe demand for cans
and fruit jars. The merchants are
cheerful, and have bought large 6tocks
of goods to meet tho trade which they
confidently anticipate. The cotton re
ceipts at Anderson for the year ending
August 31 were 31,548.
The Farmers' lteview says: Reports iroin
Illinois, Indiana, OIm, Michigan, Kiii ti'kr,
Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Wiscon

the spring wht crop is in stack and a part

were generally good and an immense crop

heavy crop iu spite of the fjet that consider
able injury has been sustained from drought
and chinch bugs. In all of the other States
the crop promises an uuusually large yield.
The potato crop is very uneven.

Progress of the South.
Among the good things that come
along with commendable regularity at
the time of the harvest moon are
tho annual trade reviews in various
Enterprising Southern newspapers. One
01 the most accurate ami comprehensive oi
these reviews is that of the New Orleans
Times-Democrat, which includes returns
from that city and Lousiana.andtno thirteen
Southern States. Delaware, Maryland, and
Missouri, are not included, they bejng re
garded as more Northern than Southern,
when an arbitrary distinction must be urawn.
The development of manufacturers is, of
course the topic of leading intere-d in a bus
iness view of the South. Exact llgan s can-
lot be given, but the estimates of the Times
Pemocrat are as nearly accurate as im-

rhakea is between 1880 and 18'J5, a period
Bf fifteen years. In that time the number
of manufacturing establishments in the S. m; h

is the comparison of the number d farms in

rushed at Cowles with such weajions as
lay at hand, and Cowlen ran in the

went to work to disarm the man at
once; but he stood just inside the door
and threaUned to use th-hatchet on
tbe first mn that came in r.-ach.

of the man. the hatch' t was las-soed
and jerked froiu his hand. He was
seized and tak u t j the stttion h-jne
