A Word to the Alliance.
We hear reports to the efl'eet that three
hundred tons of oil meal have been shipped
from the Abbeville Oil Mill to the great west,
where it is to be used as food in fattening
By reference to a notice elsewhere it will be
seen that the Abbeville Sub-Alliance is called
to meet on Saturday, the 19th, to elect delegates
to the County Alliance.
This fact and the reports above referred to
mane me uiulis ui uim ui uuc.
ab the Alllauce at present has no political
pet with whose official prospects It need to
intermeddle, we suggest a few practical
points Into which they might enquire.
It is generally conceded that we must use a
large amount of Western corn In wintering
our animals and in nourishing them during
the work season ol the Spring and Summer.
The question now is, if Missourlans, the
home of cheap corn, and if Tennesseeans, In
the great grain fields of the South, can afford
to pay twice as much for our cotton seed
meal, pound for pound, as they can get for
their corn, are we not natural born fools to
stand like simpletons and see the last pound
of this oil meal shipped from our very doors ?
Of course we do not expect the blind prejudice
or the the stupid Ignorance of the great
mass of our people to acknowledge the true
value of their own product, but in the Alliance.
we take it for granted there are at least
some progressive and public spirited citizens
who might very woll afford to investigate
r. the facts as to the real value of cotton seed
meal aDd hulls.
We are soon to enter upon a year of unprecedented
hardships, and if or.r cotton seed
halls and our cotton meal will answer the
place of Western corn and Iron-bound liny, it
Is the duty of somebody to make known the
fact, so that even the veriest fool may reap
the advantage of using our own product.
If a mule may be kept fat on cotton seed
meal and hulls, Is there any sense or wisdom
In buying the more expensive food ?
The Press and Banner has no personal experience
in feeding cotton seed meal or hulls,
bat, from statements which we see In the
newspapers, we are convinced that they are
not only Ihe cheapest food, but the very best
known to me woria.
Last year the sob-Alliances gave joint notes
at the banks for money. As practical, reason,
able men, le there, any reason why they
should not discuss the food supply question
and test the value of the hulls and cotton
Tbe Governor Couldn't Save Him.
Dick Lunday, of Edgefield, an ex-convlct
who had served a number of years In tbe
penitentiary under sentence for manslaughter,
killed James Outz, son of SberltT Outz,
last Sale Day. He was put in Jail and a body
of men entered, shooting Lunday to death.
The Governor had ordered the Edgefield
Rifles to be put at Sheriff Outz's disposal, and
they were to take charge of the Jail at six
o'clock. At half-past four o'clock tbe act of
the mob made this action unnecessary.
Make tbe Reapportionment.
The News and Courier thinks Porter's census
Is too defective for use In tbe new apportionment
of representatives in the General
Assembly. No defect in tbe census could be
so palpably unjust as the present apportionment,
whereby Charleston gets about half
uozeu Hlira uioujucia iu 1.11 v
Defective or not, let tbe Legislature make
the new apportionment. Charleston has alI
ready held those extra seats too long.
Editor Harmon of the McCormlck News
was In town last Monday, and did us the
honor to call. He Is so good a man. and always
bo cordial In his greeting that we are always
glad to Bee him. Editor Harmon Is certainly
one of the best men In the profession
of Journalism. May be live long and prosper.
The editor has been able to be up part of
each day since last Saturday, but he does not
feel able to work, and has no Inclination to do
anything. The grip seems to have "broke
The Child's Prohibition Bill meets with the
hearty disapproval of the opponents of prohibition,
though it bids fair to pass both
branches of the General Assembly. The
chief objection seems to be, that it might pro- I
hiblt. It interferes too much with one's per- :
i, sonal rights to make money and drunkards,
too, in dealing with the fluid. It deprives the
towns of special advantages in opening saloons.
What does a town want with a bar
room, If it doesn't pay a large revenue in
money to the treasury, to make good any little
barm that may come from opening a
place of temptation to the young.
A telegram, received last night, is as follows:
The Child's Prohibition Bill passes Its third
reading in the House to-day by a vote of 53 to
37 and was ordered to be sent to the Senate.

Thanksgiving day was gloomy and cheerless,
and not a ray of sunshine or brightness
all day. As a usual thing it Is bright and
beautiful. The gloomy weather kept many
at home that would have visited Irlends elsewhere,
and gave to the town a look of quietness
that reminded one of a rainy Sunday.
The King's Daughters were busy Thursday
afternoon, and no doubt made more than one
household happy, and cheered some poor soul
with the thought that on that day it was not!

CARD OF THANKS.
Mr. It. A. Griflin Returns thanks to
Ills Neighbors Tor their Sympathy
At four o'clock on Sabbath morning the
loth Inst., a double house standing about
sixty feet Irom my dwelling, (one of which
contained almost my entire corn crop), was
discovered to be on fire. The family seeing
the ntter futility of attempting to extinguish
the burning building, all efforts were directed
towards saving- the dwelling. For thirty
minutes we had no help outside the family
except a colored man and his wife. At this
hour Pickens Thompson, Harris Sanders, Anthony
Caldwell, Moses Thatcher, Samuel
Kinard, Lindsay Griffin, Lucius McDanlel,
Summer Thompson, Lank Sanders, and John
Hunter, appeared upon the scene and with
the system or trained fireman kept three exposed
buildings saturated with water until
all danger had passed, and to these faithful
colored friends, I would return our heartfelt
The following Monday morning at ten
o'clock, as I sat In my sick room which I liad
not been able to leave for near!y two months,
despondent Hnd gloomy as to the future, two
friends drove into my lot, and coining Immediately
to my room informed me that they
had a load of corn and flour and desired that
some one should receive it. So sudden and so
unexpected was this announcement, I could
not compose myself sufficiently to reply.
They went on to state that my friends had determined
to cover ray'losses and that already
a large amount which would be hauled in
from time to time, had been contributed.
During the week as I lay on my sick couch
my eyes have been often melted to tears npon
the arrival of friends bearing tokens of their
sympathy. My heart is overwhelmed at this
spontaneous outpour of generous sympathy
on the part of my friends. Modesty forbids
the mention of names where all have been
so kind. In behalf of this household I would
ask to extend our heartfelt thanks for this
manifestation of kind liberality. With the
prayer that each one may be blessed in bis
basket and store and that none may be subjected
to the fiery ordeal through which we
passed on that memorable Sabbath morning.

meal as a food for hogs. Mr. T. H. Klugh
tried it with a complete failure. With about

the meal mixed with hulls as a

Dr. P. B. Oarwlle and the editor of the Press

This all sounds very well, but we doD't

and let the responsibility for the sale
of whiskey remain where It Is. We don't
want to bear any of It.
