New Cloud's Creek Church.
On Ta??day last, we had a very pleas
ant visit from our honored friend, the
Itev. Mahlon D. Padgett, who, in these
days, very seldom comes to our town.
Mr. Padgett informs ua- and we regard
the fact as an extremely happy one-that
the Cloud's Creek church organization
known in old time? as Weat Creek-have
erected a new building to the worship of
Almighty God. This new building-large
and coramodioua-is to be dedicated on
the 4th Sunday in the present month;
and the Rev G. F. Williams, of Ridge
Spring, will preach the dedication sermon.
Other clergymen, incfuding Mr. Padget^
who is pastor of the cnurcb^Airrrrtepre3
ent. Besides the dedication ceremonies
and sermon of the forenoon, there will
also be services in the afternoon, lt is a
matter of great and high rejoicing to see
new and worthier templer lo tho Living
God thus rising here and there in our
Batesbnrg's New Preacher.
Kev. J. K. Pace, lately of Mayesville,
Ky., has accepted the invitation of the
Batesburg Baptist Church to become its
pastor, and will shortly return to South
Carolina, where he has so many friends.
Mr. Pace will devote one week in each
month to missionary work in Lexiugton
County, m the employment of the State
Board. We are rejoiced that Batesburg
has secured so valuable a man, who will
be cordially welcomed to his new home.
A New Presbyterian Church.
It gives us the profoundest pleasure to
chronicle the fact that a new Presbyterian
church will, in all probability, spring up
in our Southern borders very soon. The
leadera in this good move are Mrs. Simp
son and Mrs. B. R. Tillman. Mrs. Simp
son is a widowed sister of the Hon. G. D.
Tillman, and lives at the old Tillman
homestead on Fox's Hill^ And very near
this old homestead the new church will
be located. We understand t?at Capt.
Ben Tillman, Capt. John C. SweareDgin,
John A. Wise, Esq., and the Hon. G. D
Tillman have already subscribed liberally
to this most praiseworthy undertaking.
For eight or ten months past, the Kev. ?
L. Morris, of Trenton, has been preach
ing one Sunday afternoon in each month
in the old Tillman-homestead locality
sometimes in the Hussar Pavilion. And
to his zeal, ably seconded by Mrs. Simp
son and Mrs. Tillman, is 'lae the promis
ing effort now being made.
Looking After Ills Fences.
Senator M. C. Butler, after illustrating
South Carolina right nobly at Washing
ton, has returned to Edgefield for a few
weeks to look after his fences-not politi
cal, but agricultural ones. The sight of
his old Edgefield home and neighbors has
a tonic effect upon him. The grandeur of
the Federal Capital is not to be compared
in his mind with the pjainest prospect in
South Carolina.-Augusta ''nronime.
The carp fever has reached the Mine
Creek section, Mr. Thomas Whittle being
the pioneer. He already has his pond
stocked with two-pounders from Capt.
.Kates' pond, at Batesburg. Olherd are
literally "moving the mud" in the fish
pond matter, and ere long the man who
cannot boast of his carp pond will be the
man who has no mud hole lo scoop out.
And we say, go on with your fisherier,
and lot this be the motto of every farmer
m South Carolina: More com and less
colton; more carp and less carping.-Mon

DELIVERED AT PURCHASER'S DEPOT
Practical fanners have observed that ?ill the ammonia they need is to start th?

Fertilizer is formulated with reference to this need-the ammonia being lessened,
and phosphate and potash, boll producers, being increased.
The large per cont, of Potash and Phosphate has a tendency to prevent runt-*
