The people of the Mountain Creek neigh

interest in so all-important a matter.
"Hurrah for Hampton !" Old Edge

article contributed to the Advertiser this

merit is great, and its tone is superb. We
are proud of our old school friend fer such
high, patriotic acd generous sentiments

to each one of our 32 clubs : Send your

"The liberal heart deviseth liberal

ful kindness of Mr and Mrs. Ben Hatch
er, of Trenton. Living in peace and
plenty themselves-with farm, and dairy,
and fruits, and melons, and flowers-they
seem over anxious to share ?heir bless
ings with their friends. And among
these friends, the Advertiser is proud to
stand high. Aud since they have adopt
ed a bright-eyed and kind-hearted little
gir. for their daughter, the Advertiser
has gained another and a very strong
ally. So much so that whenever wo see
Miss Lizzie Seas? driving through our
streets, or anywhere in our vicinity,
we are sure of lovely flowers, or luscious
fruits, or the freshet o? butter and honey
-with kindest smiles and pleasantest
words. And as for tho six huge melons
sent us two days back by our old friends,
we have simply to say they were the first

to vote in a body for Mr. Tillman.
A man of beautiful and aesthetic tastes
is our friend, Capt. M. A. Matkert. His
collection of green-house plints is the
largest and most varied in (fax County i
and bis taste in arranging a bouqu't

little lady. We have seen some speci

bouquet-making-and of his Paradise
figs-that actually set us beside ourselves
with joy and admiration.
Wo are to have no hanging on Friday
next. The negro, Joe Stevens, who was
convicted of murder at our Juno Court,
and sentenced by Judge Aldrich to be
hanged on the last Friday in this month,
has received from tho Governor a stay ol'

grant or refuse an application for new

the convicted man's attorney. The Su"

The Fi ist Dime Reading lu Edgefield
Of course our citizens are aware of how
fashionable and how useful, for some years
past, have been the so-called Dime Read
ings in all the towns and villages of the
land-for charitable and church purposes.
An evening once a week, at some private
house, where a regular programme of read
ing, recitation, singing, music, &c, is per
formed. All rho attend, including the
performers themselves, pay a dime at the
door ; and at the end of a season, a very
considerably syp yijl baye been amassed.
The first entertainment of thia sort in
Edgefield will be given on Friday evening
of this week, at Ihe residence of Mrs.
Wigfall, at Si o'clock-for the benefit of
Trimly Church. It will be under the
management of Dr. B. Ham met Teague,
of Aiken, who has come, with his family,
to spend a fortnight with Dr. II Parker.
