more corn will be planted here, ^

Gov. Sheppard Replies. | j
EDITOR ADVERTISER : In the is- f
sue of your paper of this date, ap- >
pears a"very temperate and respect
ful editorial entitled "Advice to t
Gov. Sheppard." r 1
You-thereby, in^jthe presence of
the people of Edgefield county, j
advise me to "withdraw.from the 1
pace" for Governor'of* South Caro
Permit me to say, in the pres
ance of the same'audience, that I
[lid not enter the - race for Gov
srnor of my own accord; but was
?alled upon .'by a large body of
a majority of whom were farmers,
to go before the people as a candi- \
iate for Governor, upon a plat- li
form of peace and unity in the
Democratic party, which is essen- F
bial to the maintenance of white 0
supremacy, which is essential to lf
Ehe maintenance of good govern- y
ment in our State. o
I accepted the commission thus &
imposed upon me as a high, and a g
holy trust ; and shall hold it sacred 11
to my heart, without the slightest c
regard to the consequences that ?
may fall upon me.
'?Hin bearing this message of peace \
?o our-people, I shall not inflict r
upon them a "useless, senseless, f
and bitter conflict,".but will so J
conduct myself, and the campaign, jj
that yr???n the result is known, it t
will be a m at ter.of patriotic pleas
ure to every Demoorat in the State ?j
to "close up" and march shoulder 8
to shoulder to certain victory for I
the nominees of the party* c
You may rely upon ifc Mr. Edi- 1
tor, that if our people shall "be t
torn into 'factions, harassed and s
distracted by the bitterness of the
canvass, and convulsed, perhaps, 1
by internecine strife, brother 0
against brother, son against
father," the fault will not be mine, a
God knows that there was "bit- g
terness" enough in 1890, was I re- ^
sponsible for that? My desire and t
mission now is to beal the wounds *
then inflicted, to close the breach ?
then created, to the end that here
after, as well as heretofore, the
Democracy of South Carolina may
be invincible at home, and re
I acknowledge gratefully my]]
indebtedness to the people of
Edgefield county for the support
they have given me, and for the
honors they have conferred upon
me; in their presence I declare
that I have never been forgetful of
their interest, nor unfaithful to
any trust they confided to me ; and
I obligate myself, by every con
sideration that is binding upon
my conscience, so to conduct my
self as to justify their confidence
in me. /
Thanking you for your sugges
tion '.'in the interest of peace and
harmony," will you permit me to
ask, if you sincerely believe that
you are contributing to "peace
and harmony," when you refer to
some of our people as "Goat Dem
ocrats," and others as "Sheep
Democrats?" Are we not all Demo
crats alike? Have you and I not
stood shoulder to shoulder, hand
in hand, in the past, in all that
pertains to the honor of our State
and the welfare of our people? So
hereafter let us stand, for the honor
of the State we love, and for the
welfare of the people whose destiny
is our destiny.
J. C. SHEPPARD.
Haskellites on the "Sheep"
Ticket and Committee!
It'is abad thing for a candidate
;o have a rotten record ; it will al
lays be coming up and bothering
lim. It is a Banquo that will
lot down and cannot be downed.
?VouM not some of the candidates
m the Sheep Democratic ticket
'eel a little easier in conscience
lad they not voted the Haskell
;icket? At any rate had they
lot voted that ticket they would
stand a some what better chance
>f polling ballots. As it is they
sannot hope to poll any but the
?askellite votes of two years ago,
md not all of them.
A Democrat said yesterday to a
Register reporter : I do not know
low many of the Sheep candidates
roted the Haskellite ticket, but
.' know that one at least did e,o
md there may have been others.
The people of the State would
ike to hear from them on this
lubject. Democrats only, need
ipply to the Democratic party for
.Sices. One of the nominees of
he Sheep faction said he would
ather vote for the blackest
iadical that ever disgraced the
state before he would cast his
>allot for the Democratic nominee
br Congress in his district, just
>ecause the nominee of the
Democracy of that district was a
nember of the Farmers' Move
nent. Can this man expect "Dem
ocratic suffrages? It might also
>e gently enquired how many
nembers of the Sheep Executive
?ommittee bolted the regular
Democratic nominations in 1890
md voted for the Independent
la?didates. Some of them will
loubtless dislike to answer this
[uestion, but the people .will
lemand an answer and will receive
t. Several Haskellites are on the
Jheep committees and they
?rill be a heavy incubus for the
Sheppard to carry."-Columbia
The statements is made that
5ecretary Blaine intends resigning
rom the Cabinet and residing in
he South, probably Mississippi
tr Louisiana. This of course,
nean8 permanent retirement
rom politics. But the state
nent requires confirmation, and
i> great deal of it.
True Love. .
A young man at the risk of his life
laved a beautiful girl from drowning.
1er grateful father seized the rescuer of
lis daughter by the hand, and in a voice
rambling with emotion said:
"Noble youth, to yon I am indebted
or everything that makes life dear to
oe. Which reward will you take
200,000 or the hand of my daughter?"
"I'll take the daughter," replied the
leroic rescuer, thinking thereby to get
.otb the girl and the money.
"You have well chosen," replied the
grateful father, "I could not have given
?ou the $200,000 just yet, anyhow, as I
lave not 1 aid np that amount, being only
.n editor, but my daughter is yours for
if e. Take her and bo happy. God bless

GEN. GRANTS MEMOIRS
ORIGINAL $7.00 EDITION,
No book has ever had such a sale in the United States as General
Grant's Memoirs. Over 650,000 copies have already gone into the
homes of the rich, but the subscription price of $7.00 has placed it
beyond the reach of people in moderate circumstances. If 650,000
people have been willing to pay $7.00 for Grant's Memoirs, there must
be a couple of million people in the United States who want Jthem,
and will jump at the opportunity to buy at the low figure here offered.
1 We will send you General Grant's Memoirs, publishers' original
edition, best paper, cloth, green and gold binding, hitherto sold by
subscription at $7.00.
For 50 cents and absolutely a proposition such as has never been
mode in the history of book publishing. The two splendid volumes
of Grant's Memoirs, of which 650,000 copies have already been sold
not a cheap edition, but the best-for 50 cents ; provided you send
your subscription to the ADVERTISER for one year, and also a subscrip
tion of $3.00 for the Cosmopolitan Magazine, the brightest and cheap
est of the great illustrated monthlies, itself equal to the best $4.00
If, however, you have Gront's books, the Cosmopolitan's offer
will permit you to take instead,
Gen. Sherman's Memoire, two volumes, sold by subscription for
Gen. Sheriden's Memoirs, two volumes sold by subscription for
Gen. McClellan's Memoirs, sold by subscription for $3.75.
Gen. R. E. Lee's Memoirs, sold by subscription for $3.75.
All of these are bound in cloth, green and gold, in uniform style
with Grant's Memoirs.
The Cosmopolitan and Edgefield ADVERTISER are sent postage pre
paid, but the postage on the books at the rate of half .cent per ounce,
must be remitted with the of der : Gen. Grant's Memoirs, 96 ounces,
48 cents ; Cen. Sheriden's Memoirs, 92 ounces, 46 cents ; Gen. Sher
man's Memoirs, 84 ounces, 42 cents: Gen. McClellan's Memoirs, 52
ounces, 26 cents; Gen. Robt. E. Lee's I >oirs, 56 ounces, 28 cents, or
books can be sent by express at the expense of the subscriber.
Send at once $3.00 for year's subscription to the Cosmopolitan,
$1.50 for year's subscription to the ADVERTISER and 50 cents for a set
of memoirs-$5.00 in all- to v hich add postage on the particular set
of Memoirs selected.
Cheap Editions and reprints have been frequently offered by
periodicals as premiums to subscribers, but never before has an origi
nal subscription edition on best paper, and in cloth binding (sold at
retail at $7.00), been reduced to fifty cents-probably less tuan the
cost of the binding alone-and presented to the readers of a magazine
upon receipt of fifty cents.
Such an offer will never be made again. No publisher could af
ford to make it unless he wished to present a magazine which he felt
sure had only to be introduced to retain its permanent place on the
family book table-a magazine just as interesting to the young boy or
girl as to the oldest grey head.
THE COSMOPOLITAN gives in a year, 1586 pages of reading by
the ablest authors in the world, with over 1300 illustrations by clever
artists, a magazine whose field is the world, and as the best test of
merit is suocess, its growth from 16,000 to 100,000, copies within the
past three years, best attests its worth.
If you are not acquainted with the magazine, send a postal card
to the Cosmopolitan, Madison Square, New York City, for free sample
