And with this conviction strong

to do anything and everything in

It comes from our Board of Trustees,

who is willing to spend and be spent
in the effort to secure for the chil

more permanent educational advan

a large and permanent graded school,
au infinite blessing to each place,
and an infinite honor to the men who
inaugurated and sustain them. And

The establishment of high schools
is the paramount duty of our people

The Congressional Nominating
Convention of the Second District

that not one of Edgefield's twelve
delegates will be missing.
Edgefield Salutes Colonel Joseph
Uayneswortb Earle of Sumter.
The Sumter Watchman says :
Sumter County was honored last
week at the State Convention by hav
ing one of her sons so highly thought
of by the leading men of the State as
to urge his consent to allow them to
place his name before the Conven
tion as a candidate for the position ol
Attorney-General, but Col. Earle em
phatically refused to consent to any
such proposition as he himself es
poueed the claims of another for the
position, whose nomination he second
ed in a most forcible and eloquent
The gentleman whose claims Col.
Earle so eloquently and stead
fastly espoused, was our beloved com
patriot, Col. John R. Abney. And
for this act of appreciative and knight
ly generosity-no less than for a gen
eral career of high honor and bril
liant promise-Edgefield salutes the
coming man of the Game Cock County.

A Strong Plea for Working the
rubik Roads by Contract.
Messrs. Editors: I wi.ih to write
you something about roads. Every
body complains, and especially the
men who are running for County
Commissioner. The farmer, when
going to market with oats and cotton,
complains; and again wheu hauling
guano and white bacon in the spring,
that he has bought on credit, at a
ruinous interest-he does more than
complain. He actually curses. First
the roads, then himself and every
body in creation. And I guess even
you, with your (esthetic nature, curse
these "horrid" mud holes and rocky
hillsides a hundred times before you
come to them, and the picnic or cue
you are attending loses half its at
tractions in anticipation of the ride
home. I think the proper plan is to
work the roads by contract. I have
t dked to a large number of citizens
and every man is in favor of the
contract system. And the negroes
are entirely willing to pay their por
tion of the tax. I think it would be
well for some of our members elect
to the Legislature to make this new
departure, i. e., working roads by
' contract, an object of special legisla
tion. It would certainly be a most
useful and popular law. In our sis
ter State of Georgia, in Richmond
County, the public roads are worked
by contract, and consequently it is a
pleasure to drive over the smooth,
hard roads, kept from one year's end
to another in a perfect condition.
And to say. nothing of the com
fort and convenience of having a
good road, the system is a cheap one;
and when you take into consideration
the wear and tear on buggies and
wagons, the impossibility of putting
a full load on a wagon, the length ol
time consumed in goiug to and from
market-over these execrable toads,
the injury done a man's temper and
soul, it surely behooves us to look
around for a remedy. Very few men
are ever ready to pay tolls or work
the roads. It is always at an incon
venient or busy time tor them ; they
: will not do any more than they can
help when they are called out; they
. say they will "patch" the worst
places now, and work it good at some
, more convenient time. And that
: convenient time is always coming.
? Under the present law and system,
. no County Commissioner can have
; the roads properly worked, no mat
ter how many assertions he may
t make to the contrary during the
, canvass. And though his friends
r and constituents may hope for better
things under a new ruler, it will be
; as it has always been heretofore.
. Our great expectations will surely
i end in disappointment. If good
s roads be a sign of progress, of en
! lightened civilization, we are assur
i edly in the dark ages. I give you
only a few crude thoughts, hoping
you and other able men will .agitate
L tho jabj??t, frrWuciag^ncTr id^fcand
plans. Xf any good can be nocom
plished, he will certainly be a public
benefactor who brings it about.

A Blue Striped View of the 8??
MESSRS EDITOBS : The fiue?t oat
crop eiuce I was a little girl ! And
alas ! that has been sixty odd years_
Fruit in abundance-let na give
thanks to a merciful God !-and now
the finest prospect for corn and cot
ton since Columbus tailed over the
ocean blue in 140_ ! And the most
luxuriant crop of candidates-shall
we thank God or not?-ever known
in any nation ! And speaking of the
candidates, there is the greatest stir
among them (hat I have ever seen
in my sixty-five years. You actually
can't go to mill without eeeir-g some
of theta striking into by-paths and
devious ways. I nm sure I have
ee^n a thousand dill':rent ones, though
my "old mun" pays it's only the sime
ones pull, d down or puffed up by
circumstances, as the case may be.
Well, the gathering time is ne;u\ and
I am fearful, as the nights are so
cool, thivt but few of them will have
time to mature by the last day of Au
gust. But there is comfort for those
who do not ripen: they will be in the
majority; and that is Democratic.
Your meandering man of the old
ADVERTISER ha* made a slight, mis
take about the location nf Richland
Spring, but as he had lent, out his
Built sud was cold, it will be over
looked. It is a mighty hard matter
for a man to stick strictly to facts
with his shirt on; but with one's shirt
off-oh Lord ! I daresn't contemplate
the situation. A(t(-r all, men is no
bler than women, for we never lends
away our shirt off of our backs. And
as for the young man that had on
the editor's shirt, w.i thought he look
ed the coldest of the two. But they
say he is a ripening fast.
Well, I waa invited to the united
barbecue down af Ward's pond not
long ago; and such a time I never
saw ! Five thousand people, and oT
dead sheep, and 9 large dead beeves,
and all the Irish potatoes and on'ons
and tomatoes within ten miles around,
and .SO thousand of the finest kind
of pies and sweet cakes that was ever
made by womanly skill I And still
none people could not wait till the
dinner waa ready. And consequent
ly many genteel people that, would
not scramble, got nolhitg. But 1
was not like my good friend down at
old Untie Bud's; I had my shirt on
-though among ourselves we don't
call it "fchirt"-and I felt game. At
Warda pond the difficulty was not a
scarcity of provieiona, but a want of
what we Democrats call "organiza
troD." An awful fact, though, ist
some mighty hungry man-Ik no
was a man-eat up tny buggy
brella and swallowed the staff. f\
the consequence is that, since t
time, I have got very wet, and ne
ed the services of a man that is w
ing to lend his shirt.
Well, my old man and my
boys discusses nightly which can
dates is a ripening the fastest. A]
strange to say, they seem to be ;i
ious to vote for those whom t
consider quite mellow. But I, be
a woman, ai nt of that stripe. I
lieve in sticking to one's friend
matter if he is a grass green c.
blin. I find that men is prone to ijun
after ripe things.
I hope your editor will come I to
Richland Spring very soon ffg?in.
With or without a shirt we are ?al
ways glad to see him.

see that they recognize the necessity
of a united party, and realize the

from the lack of a knowledge of the

not flatter ourselves thatthereis noth

then runoff, or deny that they ever
entertained a thought of turning
