Comments on the Confederate Re-union al
Louisville, Ky.. are nearly all in. As a rule
the reports are of the rnout pleasant, thougb
tbere may be a very small discordant not*
now and then.
Hon. W. H. Parker, a veteran of the West
era Army, seems to be tbe most delighted
. delegate with whom we have talked. From
start to finish everything went well with him
? Mr. Parker was not only one of the best offl
^ cere in tbe 19tb S. C., Keg't., but he was one o

In Keatucky, Mr. Parker gave his hors<
to the sick and exhausted soldier, anc
that old soldipr holds blm In grateful remem
brance to this day, believing that-Mr. Parkei
saved his life.
Miss Lucia Parker, his daughter, went t<
Louisville with him. She went as Sponsoi
for the South Carolina division, and nobodj
wbb received with greater consideration that
Miss Parker. On Saturday night of the Re
union a large party was given especially li
her honor. The Courier-Journal made specla
mention of her presence in tbe city and pub
llshed a handsome ploture of her. Socially
she was queen of the occasion, reflectinj
honor on the state which she represented.
Mr. \V. AV Templeton was, pehaps, tb<
youngest soldier who served In the army a
long as he did. Official mention was iwlc
made in tbe field reports from the army ti
Richmond as to his gallantry. In one of th
battles he was wounded.. His commani
reached Cblckamauga to lake part In the bat

fidelity to the cause of our Saviour. Whei
the war broke out he was not only a soldier c
the Cross, but he became a soldier of hii
couiitry, and undertook cheerfully all tb
perils of the camp and all the dangers of tb
field. In that struggle he lost a foot, but in al
the succeeding years his valor is unconquer
able. While the best of bis services and tb
most zealous of bis devotions is given at th<
Throne of Grace, he adorns the life of a Chrii
tian soldier and a Christian gentleman. N
man at Louisville had a better time.
Gen. R. R. Hemphill was among the distln
gulshtid guests at Louisville. In the war h
Berved In the 7tb S. C. V., and in Orr's RltiTes
He was orderly for Gen. M. L. Bonham at th
battle of First Manassas. He was afterward
sergeant major of Orr's Rifles. He, like Mi
Templeion, was one of the youngest men li
the army, and although his official duties re
quired his presence in the most dangerou
places during the many battles In which hi
took part, Providence seemed to protect hln
from " the arrow that flyeth by day,andshlel<
him from the pestilence that walketh in dark
Detis." He weighed only 02 lbs., while in th
military service, but he did tbe duty ofth
largest man In the army. The General is i
fine writer, and knows more of the history o
tbe war than any man living. His retentlv
memory enables him to fix dates, places an<

was distinguished for courage and fidelity t

Dr. O. P. Hawthorn, of Due West, was on
of the patriots who, In his yonng manhooc
left his oomfortable home at the outbreak o
the war and went to Virginia to Rhnr? t.h
dangers and hardships of the strife. He wa
an honored graduate of Erskine and is one o

The following is an extract from the Charleston
Fkiend ok Exposition. ? Mr. Frank B.,
. Gary, who is one of the candidates for the
gubernatorial chair, said this morning that
tie considered his chances for election good.
From information he had received from va
rious sections of the State lie was gaining
gronud every day.
i Mr. Gary said lie was a strong friend of the
South Carolina Interstate and West Indian
Kxposition. The people of his county, Abbe>
ville, favored the exposition. He declared
that the light belun made by Editor Wilson of
the Press aud Manner against the project did
not amount to a hill of beans In Abbeville
county, and the more he fought the exposl
Hnn tho mom cood it would do the cause.
Mr. Gary said be expected to get a handsome
vote in Charleston.
We stated distinctly some two weeks ago
that we objected to the methods which had
been adopted by the daily newspapers to
squelch the Bamberg Herald In its opposition
to a State appropriation for the proposed
Charleston Exposition, but said nothing as to
our own opinion of the propriety of making
At that time we bad not formed an opinion .
as to whether or not It was the duty of the
State to contribute .money from the public
treasury for the benefit of Charleston.
Notwithstanding the fact, which was distinctly
stated, that we objected to the methods
which had been practiced on the Bamberg
Herald, we have been placed in the column
as being In direct opposition to the appropriation
for the Charleston Exposition.
This newspaper shall not beg to be allowed
to remain on neutral grounds, but
shall hereafter stand squarely against the
misappropriation of the people's money for
an object whose promoters are so sensitive
that they can stand neither discussion nor
We are sorry that we should ,'ave been
placed Id a position which we did not assume.
We are sorry that division should occur
at a time when good feeling should prevail.
But having been placed in a position from
whence it may have been thought we would
retreat or go on the defensive, we shall stand
g our ground and make an aggressive fight
3 against any misappropriation of the people's
money for the use of Charleston.
j The ill-humor and Intolerance that has
been exhibited convinces us that the advo
r cates of the appropriation of public funds for
g private use are doubtful of the Justice of their

If Mr.'Gary can advance h!s cause In Chart

Foolish to Answer Advertising Agent*.
,f "PkacticaIj Advertising,"?a valuable
, publication coming from Atlanta, says a
e prominent agency of that city sent to 150 coune
ty newspapers for their advertising rates.
I After two weeks 21 answered, one cf whom
quoted space at SI an Inch, and then "Practle
cal Advertising" proceeds to belittle the man
e who was a "business man."
Now, there are two sides to this advertising
0 agency business, and we venture to suggest
that the 129 who did not answer were wiser
than the 21 who did answer. Those who did
e answer are posBibly out their stationery and
1 postage, while the 129 lost nothing.
e* This office would not consider for a second
s the answering of an advertising agent's letter
if the postage was omitted. When the post3
age is sent It Is possible that we might answer'
K Unless a county newspaper proposes to work
8 for little or nothing he need not fool away his
0 time with advertising agents. We venture to
3 suggest that there is not a country newspaper
j in this state which charges for patent medicine
ads anything like the price he would
: ask home advertisers for the same space. Fat
g ent medicine ads, as a rale, get preferred space,
B or among reading matter.
i} But, as a matter of fact, it seems thata great
e number of newspapers "dote" on medical adB.

Hon to plaee-notices In a number of papers at

not a man has accepted our offer.
Abbeville Man to the Front.
1 Dr. S. A. Vlsanska, formerly ol this city,
1 but nov 0/ Atlanta, has been Instrumental In
r opening a free clinlo for the poor children of
Atlanta. Be has made arrangements with
1 the druggists for filling such prescriptions at
1 greatly reduced prices. Id helping the poor
;; of his city Dr. Vlsanska is a public benefactor.
He gives six hours a week?two hourB
* three days?to the examination of such poor
' children as may be ?rought to him at the
Woman's Co-operative Home. This splendid

medical attention. Free medical attention,
* and cheap prescriptions at the drug stores is
something of 'which any people might be
0 proud. 1.
f' We congratulate Dr. VlBanska not only on
e his medical skill, but on his good heart which
B prompts him to undertake so great a labor
without hope of fee or reward.

0 We have no Idea that the Oconee News
1 would knowingly do Governor McSweeney
t an Injustice, or circulate a report against
him, unless he thought It was true. But

made by that paper are falling flat, and that

Let no man mix up the Abbeville Carnival
j with the Great Inter-State,Philippine Islands
g and South American Exposition. The Exposltlon
will not take place before next Sum3
mer, while the Carnival takes place July 17,
18, and 19 of this year.

caslon, and many people are expected to be
with us then. '
1 The Charleston Exposition.
Let no man misunderstand this newspaper*
We are not opposed to the Exposition. But
we are dead against the bulldozing methodi
to which Its friends have reported In them
treatment of the Bamberg Herald, and wti
o think Charleston should not ask the people
I. to pay the expense of her show.

Sentiment Favorable to Coalition of
Two Church Bodien.
Washington Evening Star.
The Associate Reformed Presbyteriansorthe
South and the United Presbyterians of the
North and West have been cultivating fraternal
relations for several years with a view to
the coalition ot their church bodies. Of the
fraternal delegate and his mission to the general
assembly of the United Presbyterians
Church, wnlch met recently In Chicago, The
United Presbyterian, Pittsburg, Pa., says:
I " Rev. Oliver Johnson, of the Associate Reformed
Presbyterian Church, In a fitting
speech conveyed the fraternal greeting of bis
denomination and made a happy Impression
' M>oouoflrwKlw M?? TAhnuAn Id ? foppihlP
speaker, and, like all who have come to us Id
recent years, he showed his sympathy for the
movement for organic union of these Psalmsinging
churches. Personally be was ready
for the union, but some could not yet see
their way clear. A majority of the Southern
church was lrv favor of It, but they wished
time that all might beof one mind. Some of
their people had formed the acquaintance of
men from the north under lees favorable circumstances
many yeas ago, and have not forgotten
their experiences of that day. He felt
that our churches are one. He referred to the
oneness tn principle and practice of the two
bodies. There is a current of love in our hearts
although thore might be a different rippling
on the surface. We enjoyed the rlppllngs he
gave us. His words will not convey a lull
idea of his address, for the voice must be
beard in order to determine the delicacy of
the spirit. The inspiring hopeful words with
which he closed his address thrilled the entire
Assembly. At no time did Moderator
Sankey appear to a better advantage than
when he responded to Mr. Johnson."

roads of the county are In good condition.
To this, however, there la one exception.
That portion of the road from Uonea Path to
the line of Greenwood county has been represented
as being In bad condition. The mttt
ter wns referred to the Supervisor, who has
given assurance that this particular road
shall have bis prompt attention.
William Nance, a colored man, who had
been on the county chain gang for one month
came before our body and exhibited certain
marks and sores upon bis legs, which be
claimed resulted from the shackles being too
tight. After Investigation, we are convinced
no cruelty was intended, bat as a matter of
precaution, we suggest that in future care be
taken on the partfof the overseers in charge,
to see that the wearing of shackles by convicts
be attended with as little pain as poealbie.
An application was made to us to lease tbe
Court room, to be used for theatrical performances;
but alter due consideration, it was
f hnntrhf. to be unwise to change the action Of
tbe Grand Jnry of 1899 with reference to tfcjf
matter, and we, therefore, recommend that
the keeping of the Coart room and furnltarf, '
be left in tbe hands of tbe Supervisor an?:'^-~f? t
Clerk, where tbe law has plaoed tbem.
In view of tbe fiact that tbe annual
ments of the County officers have not yej$&. . f
been made, tbe Grand Jury have made no ex?-' amloatlons
of said offices at this term, defeat
ring said examination till tbe October term.'
Expressing our thanks to bis Honor and
the Solicitor for courtesies, etc.
