Cat Off in the Budding of Youth.
A deep and. bitter affliction has visited
the hearts and home ; of. those much-be
loved, members of our community, Mr.
and Mrs. LEWIS JOKES. Their young
estchild, a lovely girl of sixteen sum
mers, ".departed this life, at Spartan
burg-while there at school-on' Tuesday,
the 16th inst The lamented MAST ELIZA
JOKES waa beautiful and graceful in per
son, gifted in intellect, pious and gentle
in disposition. Her death bed waa a
. scene of triomphant faith, holy hope,
sublime resignation. And thus one more
of the loved ones of earth is. gathered to
the glory of the Only Begotten whose
abode is in tho bosom of the Father. We
know full well that all Edgefield joins
ns in deepest sympathy for this bereaved
and weeping family.
At about sundown on Wednesday of
last week,, our town was startled by an
alarm of. fire, and it was soon discovered
that the stable and barn of lira. Mary
Tillman was being consumed. The build
ing could not be saved, but fortunately
the flames did not reach the dwelling
house. Mrs. Tillman's loss is about $300.
She desires us to return hoi kindest
thanks to the many friends, while and
black, who hurried to her assistance on
this unfortunate occasion. There is but
little doubt that the fire proceeded from
tho torch of the incendiary.

The Sibleys and Their Fertilizers.
This week J. Sibley & Sons send us a
list of the Fertilizers sold by them. The
planting community will do well to pay
particular attention to this dist. It is for
tunate that planters and farmers can now
select such Corn and Cotton Stimulants
for their fields as the experience of years
has demonstrated to be genuine and
worthy of confidence. Prominent among
such are the Fertilizers sold by the Sib
- leys, of Augusta.
Of Sweeping Popularity.
Of sweeping popularity is the new
American Sewing Machine. We speak
of it as new, because it is new in these
parts. Mr. Oscar Cheatham is the Agent
hereabouts. Read his card in another
column. He invites all the ladies to call
at his Store and inspect the American.
It performs great wonders, and is the
theme of universal admiration.
Let Vs Uphold Our Own.
We would speak a word in behalt of
the admirable agricultural journal which
does so much honor to our State. We
mean the Rural Carolinian, published
monthly in Charleston. The Rural Car
olinian is, in all respects, equal to any
agricultural journal published in this
country, with the further claim u]K>n us
that it belongs to South Carolina, is con
ducted by South Carolinians, and aim's
particularly to improve and develop the
agriculture of South Carolina. The Ru
ral Carolinian begins the new year
splendidly. Tho January number, ly
ing before us, is in itself a noble hand

art. Let us then uphold the Bural Caro
linian bravely. Two Dollars a year, in ad
vance. Address Walker, Evans ? Cogs
This old and well tried fertilizer, is
still in the market, at a reasonable price.
Having been constantly used in all parts
of the country since 1852, when it was
first introduced, this is the twentieth
year of its most successful career ; and
notwithstanding the many competing
fertilizers that have since been brought
into use, Mapes' still maintains its popu
larity, and is the favorite of many of our
best planters. Its great recommenda
tions are that no adulterating mr.:< rial is
used in ifc? manufacture, and its constitu
ents are such as to produce quick action
and permanent improvement to the soil.
The Agents for this State are Messrs.
Kinsman ?fc Howell, of Charleston, gen

munity, for their energy, promptness
and strict i ntegrity in all business mat

What a Railroad Does for an Inland
The Abbeville Medium, of the 17thsays:
Our cotton trade for the last week has
boen very brisk-buying and selling are
constantly going cn. The number of
bales of cotton shipped by the 6. & C.
Railroad from the 8th to the 15th inst.,
inclusive, were four hundred and forty
-an average of more than seventy-three
bales per dw. The staple is selling at a
good price,*and the faces of our farmers
are made brighter by it.
?S" We learn from the Abbeville (S.
C.) Medium- that that town was visited on
the 12th inst., by Mr. Wallace, Internal
Revenue officer, and a large lot of tobac- j
co taken from the merchants of the place.
The tobacco was improperly stamped,
and was taken on that account The j
amount "lifted" by Mr. Wallace is esti- J
mated as being from three to four hun- j
dred dollars worth. j
Mr. James Gordon Bennett, Jr. J
ft the New York Horald, is mentioned j
as the successor of Jas. Fisk, Jr., as col- j
" onel of the 9th regiment.

A STABIL INSTITUTION.-Just at the
period when all stable-men were com
plaining that the horse-ointments of thc
day were unstable remedies, the Mrs
TANu LINIMENT made its entree in Mis
souri, without any nourish of trumpets,
and within one year, became the favorite
embrocation for the external distempers
and injuries of horses and cattie in all
the Western and Southern States. From
that time to this, it has never had a rival
in the estimation of accomplished horse
men ; nor is its household reputation as
acure for rheumatism, neuralgia, sore
nipples and caked breasts, tumors, sore
throat, mumps, ear-ache, tooth ache,
bruises, burns, wounds and sprains, a
whit behind its celebrity as a hoi-se Lini
ment The Mothers of America know
its value, and apply it promptly to the
external injuries ot the " rising genera

township in tho United States where the
MUSTANG LINIMENT is not regarded by
both sexes and every class, as a blessing
o the community. -
FROM DAK TO BEERSHEBA.-From
Charleston to Dahlonega, from the sea

marked improvement in the style of

EDGEF?ELD, Dec. 30th, 1871.
I have used commercial fertilizers for
several years, and this vcar, with other
kinds, used the Wando, giving it, Ithink
a lair trial. In my opinion, the Wando
gave more remunerative results than uny
other kind used by me.
EDGEF?ELD, C. H., S,.C., Jam. 1,1872.
This is to certify that ! have used thc
Wando Guano for two years with the
happiest result-quantity applied 2001bs.,
with 15 Bushels Cotton. Seed per acre
with this manuring I increased the yield
of heed Cotton per acre about six hun
dred pounds or more. I may add that I
made a bale per acre on twenty acres
with above manuring.
W. A. SANDERS.
EDGEF?ELD, S. C., Dec. 30th, 1871.
This year I planted eighty-five acres
in Cotton j poor land, and used three tons
of thc W ando Guano. I made, packed
and sold forty-eight bales, weighing 4U0
pounds. Thc three tons wore applied to
45 acres, which produced 31 bales For
ty acres, better land, was unmanurcd,
and the result was oniy 17 bales. The
cheapness, and the intrinsic worth of the
Wando, places it upon a monicd valua
tion. E. ll. YOUNGBLOOD.
EDGEF?ELD, S. C., Jan. 10th, 1372.
I have usod the Wando Fertilizer for
two years, and willingly testify as to its
merits. Taking into consideration its
cost, it paid me better, as an investment,
than Peruvian Guano, and is equal, if not
superior, to any fertilizer in tho market,
of which I have any practical knowledge.
