Sale-Day Jottings--And Other Sorts.
Sale-day was like a light and airy
bridge spanning a fearful abyss. We
mean as regards the weather. It was as
bright, balmyband sunshiny a day as one
could well wish to see. While the Sun
day before it-in fact the whole month
was implacably fierce, cold and leaden.
And, to the utter surprise and horror,of
everybody, to-day (Tuesday) is again ab
solutely fearful-cold, dark, and the rain
pouring down in such torrents as we
have seldom beheld-with thunder and
lightning that would befit August What
is to become of us ? Some of us were
going to hie away to the happy land of |
Augusta this afternoon, to attend the
grand masquerade ball and the splendid
Theodore Thomas concert, but as matters
now stand it would be worth one's life to
attempt to get three miles from town
either by land or by water. We are in a
peck of trouble in cons?quence, for we
have been panting for this Concert "as
the hart for the water-brooks."
But back to sale-day! The warm sun
and blue sky brought out a large crowd
of our fellow-citizens from the country.
Everybody Telt thawed, friendly and ge
nial. Itwasa lively day. The sunshine set
people ter chatting about planting-about
cotton, corn, guano, and all that. Evi
dently the design on all sides is to plant
very largely of cotton. Look sharp,
friends, or the present price of the staple
will delude you into folly.
Tho Sheriff sold some well-timbered
land in the neighborhood of G rani te ville
for a mero song. For instance, a tr?fet of j
205 acres, for $465 ; another of 104 acres,
for $65; and still another at even lower
figures: And then* Capt. B. M. Talbert
sold notes belonging to some estate, toe
purchasers buying fortunes for only a
few cents. But this was not tho only
speculation of the day. There was the
IMPARTIAL INDICATOR OR WHIRLIGIG
His name is Dr. Powell, one of the origi
nal jjpS F. follows, and he is a right
pleasant Bohemian-one who pays his
printing bills, and puts his modus oper
andi fairly and squarely before tho eyes
of the public. His speciality is Soap.'
In the centre of a circular table is fixed
a steel "Indicator" turning upon a pivot.
A round the margin of the table, thick and
carefully numbered, lie the prizes. They
range from a half dime, through rings,
and spoons and knives, and trinkets and
silver cups, up to gold watches. The
Soap lies in neat cakes here, there, and
all around. The Soap works stupendous
miracles both upon the outer and inner
man. Ton buy a cake of Soap, for which
you "nay always fl, and this entitles yon
to- a cum of the " Indicator," and the
possession of the prize to which it points
when it ceases to turn. You must ran
something. Sometimes you win a gold
watch, but oftener you get back only 10
or 25 ct*, upon your dollar. Neverthe
less, your chance is as fair as any man's.
" You pays your money and you takes
your choice." And then the Doctor is
witty and sonorous His tongue wags
tumultuously all the time, and screams
of laughter reward his sallies. On Mon
day last he did a good business in Edge
field. Our colored friends venerate him.
They follow him fanatically, and their
eyes pop out of their heads by dozens
when the "Indicator" stops at an impor
tant prize. And after dinner, when gen
ero os wine had made many of us feel
loose and fellowish, we white people also
took to following after Soap. Wno shall
ever forget the deafening shrieks when
our friend, Jerry Gardner, won the gold
watch ? We will not say that Dr. Pow
ell is a just mart made perfect,-although
we take him to be a clever gentleman
but if people "will be improvident with
their money it is certainly not his look
out V?vela bagatelle/
And more exhilarating even (to us)
than Dr, Powell's lottery scheme, was
the honor done on this day to the Adver
tiser. Just imagine our getting, besides
a number of individual subscriptions,
two clubs of subscribers, each number
ing twenty members ! We have every
right t?'?eel proud-and to be a little
talky. And apropos of this club plan,
it is an admirable one-lucrative to us,
and cheaper for&ubecribers.
