Charming Pee Dee Ladies in Edgefield
For a fortnight past, Edgefield has re
joiced in the presence of two very charm
ing Pee Dee ladies-mother and daughter
-Mrs. W. J. McKerall and Mis? Kate
McKerall, of Marion. And while Edger
field has rejoiced, no sun has shone in the
generally blithesome hr me of our hon
ored friend and brother, Major W, J.
McKerall, of the old Marion Star. But
that gentleman is not altogether selfish,
and yields up his Bun and morning star to
beam for a while in the home of an old
friend-Mrs. S. S. Tompkins, of our vil
lage. But when we tell him that Majcr
S.. S" like everybody else, is deeply and
hopelessly i-i love with his morning star,
then whc.^ will he think? Yes, the old
Ms?or, under the Pee Dee affhtus, has
gone back thirty-five years!
A Splendid Move.
Coi. A. P. Butler, State Commissioner
of agriculture, will shortly organize three
or four Agricultural clubs in Edgefield
County. He proposes to arganize cluba
among the farmers throughout the State
for the discussion of live agricultural
questions and the improvement of the
fermera. A genuine [revival in agricul
ture has struck this State, and the most
encouraging results are expected.
A Free and First Class Institution.
You can now send. your sons to the
South Carolina College for from $125 to
$175 per session of nine months. See
the card in another column. And your
son can now go to this first-class inatitu.
tion and live like a gentleman for $300
the n.ne months. And in this $300 we
include board, fuel, washing, lights,
clothing, traveling exoenses, theatres,
balls, and social, amusements generally.
For liquor and tobacco we make no allow
ance, inasmuch as we consider the one the
deepest disgrace to the human race, and
the other the dirtiest, most selfish and
moBt unpardonable extravagance, Tui
tion is absolutely free. And contemplate
the contrast. In our day the actual col
lege expenses were almost $500; and if
you lived liked a gentleman, as all South
Carolina boys in those days did, your ex
penses were from $1,000 to $1.500. But
now you can go to one of the best col
leges in the 1'nion, and right at your own
do;r, for from $150 to $300 a year, just
as you choose to make it. And why the
e.tizens of Edgefield do not send their
sous, is a y^ery great mystery to us. The

Louisville a Fortunate City.
This city baa been singularly fortunate,
s.3 several citizens have of late gotten
??mall fortunes in drawing prizes in the
lottery. The last fortunate one is Mr.
Wm. W. Irwin, a Clerk in the Auditor's
Office of the L. & N. R. R., 2d and Main
st3. Mr. Irwin yesterday, while working
in the office, received an offic'al looking
document bearing the N. 0. post-mark,
and discovered, to his great joy, official
notification that he bad drawn one-filth of
$75,000 m the Louisiana State Lottery,
amounting to $15,000. The ' acky ticket
was No. 85,003. Some time ago Mr. Ir
win purchased his first lottery ticket,
v*ry nearly the number which then drew
the capital prize. He then thought he
would try again, and this time produced
such golden results. Mr. Irwin is a mid
dle-aged man, married, and has a small
family. He has been connected with the
L ? N. for several years, and has been a
frith lui worker, and many friends are pro
fuse in their congratulations.-Louisville

MESSRS EDITORS: A rapid dri

The quantity of fried chicken ri

Notwithstanding the many lunch*
we had, aome of the fried chicken wf

exist. My young friend hated vet
much to leave Edgefield. And it i

lived in Edgefield, to leave it for a ev

there ia no fried chicken ! I ate break
fast in EJgefisld and took dinner i:
New York the next day, which ia raak
ing very good time. The day after I ar
rived, the first thing to be done wa
to attend to all special orders. Anc

I could not help but notice the
large travel on the Elevated Rail
Road thia afternoon. Trains every
5 minut?e, and four long coaches to
each train-crowded all the time.
Only charge L?C. for certain hours in
the mornings and afternoons, to ben

their buaineas easily ana cheap, even
if they live aeveral miles away. It
is strange that New York did not
have an Elevated Railroad many
years before she did.
Yesterday afternoon found me up
town with nothing special to do, and
in the vicinity of 20Tb~8t., ah?fuue,

$75,000 in the Louisiana Siate Lot

to New Orleans, by theSouthern Es

in cash, by the Lottery Company,
without scaling or any deducti n.
Mr. Burks eeemed delighted with hi?

Mr. Burke ia rather below the me
