Ever since Tillman spoke at Edge
field on the 23rd of April our preachers
have been "on a tare." We'mean to
' say that these reverend, gentlemen
have not only been stirred up them
selves,but have beens tirring upo thers
with sharp sticks. So it is that all
genuine reforms, whether in the
moral, political, or social world, act
interact, and reach upon each other
until they become homogeneous and
mix and mingle into one; and like the
circles formed by throwing a pelble
in the water they go on widening un
til all evils in sight are reached.
An Unanswerable Question.
It comes to us that the antis in this
county have abandoned all hope of de
feating Tillmap, and the only thing
they will strive for now is to defeat Dr.
Timmerman for the State Senate.
Some time ago the editor of the AD
VKUTISKK was approached on this same
subject by an anti and asked to name
a man who could defeat Senator Tin
merman in Edgefield county. We told
bim that Julius Caesar was the only
man we knew of who could do that job
and he was dead, but that if he would
go off and come back about the year
1940 we might be able to do something
for him. He said he couldn't wait and
Our Opera House services closed on
Sunday night. These services were
well attended, and productive of much
good in our community. While there
was no copious outpouring of the
spirit still there was a general shaking
np of the dry bones. There was no
sermon on the last night, but instead
a testimony meeting, at which Capt.
Jas. Dorn, Mr. J. H. Cantelou, Mr. E. J.
Mims, Dr. Frank Ti in m ons, Prof. J. T.
Parks, Mr. W. H. Turner, Mr. J. P.
Ouzts, Mr. John Ware, Mri John Hill,
Mr. Jas. Hart, Mr. John Lake, Mr.
Marshall, and thc 'ministers present
festifled to their faith in Christ, their
desire to work for Him, and the benefit
derived from the meeting.
Put "Pisen" on Him.
Apropos of the effort being made by
the antis to defeat Dr. Timmerman
for the State Senate, an old farmer
came i ito our office the other day and
said: "We're gwme to clean up Dr.
Timmerman for the Senate this time.
All we farmers are against him be
canse he's run fodder up so high."
Bight here he fell down on the floor in
a conniption fit and laughed and
laughed till we thought he'd "bust,"
and then he fainted, and then, to keep
the flies off him, we covered him up
with a copy of the Columbia State.
This brought him to. He jumped up
and run down the street hollering,
"Pisen! Pisen I Don't put pisen on
me." We havn't seen him since.
Out in tlie Cold.
The Columbia Register says that it
has been mutually agreed by Gov.
Tillman and Candidate Sheppard that
no campaign meeting will be held at
Edgefield. This will be a great dis
appointment to many in Edgefield
Persons wanting boarders for the
summer months can leave their names
and rates per month with Mr. W. H.
Turner. Reduced rates over the rail
roads have been granted to persons
living in Augusta who may desire to
summer in Edgefield. Next week we
shall give the exact Agares if nosslble.
Our 1 O'clock Train.
We hear that our 1 o'clock train on
the Cumberland Gap road is to be
taken olf, and that Capt. Greneker and
Engieener Whaley are to be transferred
to the main line. This puts Edgefield
in the soup again, temporarily, at least.
The fall trade, however, will make nec
essary another train to carry off ard
to bring up freight.
It is alleged that there is an indis
position on the part of some candidates
in this county to indicate whether
they are in favor of the progressive
and reform element of the Democracy
in this State or the "get back" crowd.
Now, there cannot be a particle of ex
cuse for this. If one-half the bad
things said about Tillman are true
you can surely make up your mind to
go against bim, and if one-half the
good things attributed to him are true
you can make up your mind to go
for him. In either event, there is no
excuse for vacillation or hesitation. .

A June Snow.
ST. PAUL, Minn., June 6.
Dispatches received to-day say
that a great snow storm is raging
west of the Missouri river In
South Dakots, at Deadwood, the
snow has been falling fiercely for
ten hours, and lies on the ground
to'tlva depth of ten inches. Traffic
is almost suspended, and the
temperature has fallen below the
friezing point. Nothing of the
sort has ever before occurred in
June in the Northwest in this
territory of the signal service.

There are heathen parents who

so delicate that when in a wild
state it can scent an enemy at a
distance of 1,000 yards and the

by its tiny proboscis.

The Destruction of Several
Towns In Pennsylvaiea
. PITTSBURG, PA. June 5.-The
oil region was visited by an awful
' disaster of flood and fire this
; morning early. There was one
? cloud burst at Titus ville and
i another at Oil City. Both cities
are inundated and the people
have fled to the hills; men,
1 women and children are on the
house cops praying to be rescued.
To add to the horror several
refineries were struck by lightning,
and the property not destroyed by
water is being consunnd'by fire.
At 3 o'clock this afternon half
of Titusville is reported in flames,
and at Oil City it i? feared the
entire town is doomed to
destruction. The loss of life is
large, but reports are conflicting.
One dispatch says fifty persons
w?re drowned at Titusville and a
large number burned to death. At
Oil City eleven persons are
reported burned and a district
two blocks wide is now burning.
Telegraphic communication is
badly interrupted. The Western
Union wires are down and for a
time Oil City was completely cut
At Titusville four of the largest
refineries are on fire and a stretch
of builings of at least one-half
mile in length.
The flood appears to have been
general throughout Nothern
Pennsylvania. A telegram from
Meadville says that the damage
there cannot be now estimated.
A gorge which formed in a deep
ravine north of the town forming
a lake of three acres, twenty feet
deep, broke and swept half the city.
The New York, Pennsylvania and
Ohio Railroad gast of Meadville
was damaged beyond estimate. No
deaths are reported, but in loss of
property the result is frightful.
- At 4:30 o'clock this afternoon a
telegram was received from
Tituville placing the loss of life at
one hundred and fifty in that
town. The water came up suddenly
from Oil Creek and flooded the
whole flat as far as Spring street,
forming a lake nearly half a mile,
in width and about two-thirds
of a^mile in length. A short time
later the Acme Oil Refinery was
struck by lightning and fire added
terror to the scene* The flames
spread rapidly and soon five
blocks, from Perry to Drake streets,
including Washington, Franklin
and Mate streets, and from the
Western New York and Pennsyl
vania Rarilroad to Spring street,
were laid waste. Half a dozen of
the largest oil refineries, among
them Rice & Robinson's,
Scawartz's and the Acme, were
burned. The only buildings said
to be now standing in the district
mentioned are the Titusville Iron
Works and the depot of the
Western New York and Pennsy
vania Raiload. The water began
to recede about noon and is now
going down rapidly. A large num
bor of bodies have been recovered
and, the work is still going on.
The latest from Oil City is to
the effect that the entire 3d ward
of the city is in ashes and that
the flames are still spreading. A
: large part of the town is still un
der water. Eleven persons are
reported burned to death and
several drowned. Great damage
is also reported at Corry, Pa, and
other towns in that region.
A special train with the
i representatives of the Associated
. Press on board left Pittsburg for
the scene of disaster at 3. 30 o'
clock this afternoon. It should
reach Oil City about 8 o'clock to
. night, but great difficulties may
. be encountered in getting through,
' as the tracks are reported to have
' been burned for miles. A full
report, however, will be sent at an
early hour to-night.
f A PITTSBURG ESTIMATE OF THE DIS
Pittsburg. June ?.-^-The oil
, regions of Pennsylvania were visi
ted to-day by a disaster of fire and
water that is only eclipsed in the
history of this country by the
. remorable flood at Johnstown just
, three years ago. It is imposseble
. at this hour (midnight) to give
( anything like a correct idea of the
loss of the life and property, as
chaos reigns throughout the de
. vastated region and the terrible
i conflagration still rages in Oil
It is safe to say that not less
than one hundred and fifty lives
have been lost. Nearly one hund
> derd bodies have already been
: recovered and many people are
. missing. The number may far
j exceed one hunderd and fifty, but
this isrfegafded as a conservative
fc estimate. The property loss will
i reach far into the millions. At
Titusville the loss is estimate at
, $1, 500,000, Oil City $1,500,000,
Corry $600,000 Meadville $150,
000, and the surrounding country
3 probably a million more.
