We have frequently been asked
what had become of Potts and that
portion of the Cumberland Gap
- Railroad above Edgefieid. To get
the truth, about the matter we have
interviewed Dr. Bob Mayson, who
lives near the line of the projected
" route. Dr. Bob says that the last
tim?:he saw the railroad Dr. Josh
' - Bell had it on .his back and was
trying to cross Mountain Creek,,
but that right at the ford he
stumped his toe and fell down and
lost it. .
A Smash-Up. .
It is generally known that up to
this time there has been a strong
combination as to the price of all j
. first-class eooking stoves, that this
combination has certain agents in
every State and section, that these
agents are proteoted by iron-clad
agreements from-the factories, and
nioner has -been -allowed to en
croach on their -territory. ^But,
. happily for the people; with the
. election of Cleveland to the Presi
dential chair comes also a smash
up* of this great stove combine. |
We have just been informed
r Mr. L". F. Padgett, 805 Broad S t.,
Augusta, Ga., that he will sellai
No. 1006 "Charter Oak" stove ^ith
20 pieces cf ware for $16, a Nb.
2007, with same quantity of ware \
for $17.50. This stove has been
retailed for $25, and we have no
doubt that the dealers, who have
not been posted on this are yet
asking $25 for it. We only men
tion these two sizes because the I
people are acquainted with them
and. will see at a glance how great j
a" reduction has taken place in
stoves. If any of our readers are|
in need'of a cooking-stove, it will
be well for them to write this firm

largely in all kinds of house-fur
nishing goods, including furniture,
carpets, oil-cloths, .rugs, shades,
baby carriages, in fact,everything!

Mrs. Lucy J. Bates.
Mrs. Lucy J. Bates, relict of the
late Gen. John Bates, died quite
. suddenly at her residence in our
village about ll o'clock on Monday
last, Dec. 5th. Her remains were
laid to rest in our village cemetery
on .the following daj, the Rev. J.
Booth of the Baptist church)
officiating at the obsequies. Well
known and well beloved through
-. out Edgefield county was this dear |
lady, for her whole life has been
passed within its birders, and the
graces and. virtues of ^a noble an
cestry were lier's by inheritance.
For several years past her health
had been failing, and loving ones
were grieved to witness the gradual
diminution of streugth, the daily
decline of the patient invalid. At |
last, the angel messenger came un -
awares and bore her gentle spirit,
-to its home in biiss. -Rare indeed
, Were the qualities of the deceased.
Exemplary in.every relation of|
life, her-devotion to her children
was something remarkable,, the
gentle modesty of her disposition
leading, her to prefer tosshine in
*tho home circle* rather than seek
Tder. fields of usefulness. She
. leaves two daughters, $Irs. Mary
bartley and Miss Ella Bates, and
' two sons, Mr. John Bates, and Mr.
v. Eugene Bates, of Greenville, and
.hosts of other relatives and friends
.. to mourn their' irreparable loss.
Her children were* with her in her
last moments, except one who had
- preceded her to the better land. I
. To- these bereft ones, especially
those nearest and dearest to her,
^ we would extend our tender sym
pathy. " The blow is crushing, the
: agony of grief is well nigh insup
portable, the devoted mother will
be'missed more and more as the
"years roll by and life's trials and
disappointments press heavier
upon :the weary hearts. May the
afflicted oneB find consolation in
Christ, and the faith that "

Don't Be Bulish.
It will be well for those who a?
inclined to be bullish on cottor
futures to remember that the visi
ble supply of cotton at this date
is only one hundred thousand balef
lesss than last year at this time,
and*that last year at this time cot
ton was selling at six and sever
cents. The cotton yield for thit
year is, it is true, more than a mil
lion bales short, up to date, but thc
-visible supply is the safei point ol
.view and coign of vantage from
which to look at future cotton
This year's cotton crop is a small
one. Now if last year and ' yeai
before last crops had alio beer
small you might safely predict thal
cotton would yet gc higher anc1

Tis. j.-t va House every day at
iV0:3G.-i*ad every evening at 7
Relock witnesses the assembling
??' ft -jrge and- appreciative con
gregation1. "Mr. W. P. Fife, the
weil known evangelist from North
Carolina, is conducting a revival
meeting in that building.
Although Mr.. Fife., has been in
Edgefield only since Sunday, his
warm and genial disposition has
won the hearts and confidence of
the people of our town. His mag
netism is wonderful, and he can
make us cry or laugh as he desires.
Every one has an urgent invita
tion to come and come promptly,
and the people of the country are
invited to attend and participate
in the religious services.
In thelast.town Mr. Fife visited
he was -asked, in what place he
would conduct his next meetings,
he replied, "In Edgefiold," where
upon he was told that he would
"strike a snag there." Mr. Fife,
not gaunted, said he blessed God
for the hard cases for they were,
the ones he desired through God's
help to reach. Mr. Fife' has won
derful faith, and we know that he
will, through God's help and the
prayers of the Christian people of
Edgefield, reach the hard cases.
Mr. Fife says that his heart is
much bigger than his body, that
He is a big-hearted fellow and that
th? beys will like him when they
know him better.
We heard one young man, that
had been 0 given a hearty hand
shake, say, not that he liked Mr.
Fife; but that he "knew Mr. Fife
liked him." which we believe
means about the same in the end.
This shows, too, what a genial,
kind manner the evangelist dis
plays. Here is another illustration
of his generous nature, which he
says was misdirected generosity:
He said that as late as 1884,, at the
time of the election of Cleveland
and Hendricks, he was keeling a
grocery with a bar attached, and on
the night of the election had made
a little speech to 1200 men ; after
this speech he invited them all to
come in and he would knock the
head out of a ba.rrel of whiskey for
their especial benefit.. This invi
tation they accepted, and Mr. Fife
does not boast of, but deplores the
fact thal he was the cause of the
drunkenness of many citizens that
night He further said thoy
thought him a fine fellow then, but
that when he left that place and
after some time returned' to it a
Christian, these same men said
they had no confidence in Fife's
religion, and declared they
wouldn't hear him preach, however
he said that before his meetings
there were concluded many of those
same men had been brought to a
knowledge of the truth as it is in
Mr. Fife says he had been ac
cused of preaching for money, but
that although he believed he got
more money for preaching than
any man in the United States
except Sam Jones that now he
could not draw a check for a hun
dred dollars. He says that some peo
ple think evangelists live on souls
anyway, but he thinks it would
take a hundred such stingy narrow
ones as that of the man who think
that way to make a bait. Mr. Fife
says he hasn't a stingy bone in him
and that if he thougat he had and
knew where it was, he'd cut it out.
He has been called a fool, a
fanatic, and crazy, but he says if
he is crazy he knows his asylum is
up in heaven and that the Lord
Jesus is his keeper and that if he
is a fool he is the happiest fool on
He desires unity in the churches,
and tells how that the last prayer
Christ had made was that the
disciples Bhould be one even as
Christ was one with God, and that
tho stones of prc j ud ice, eec tari an i em
and unbelief would have to be
removed before rich blessings
could come to the hearts that
fostered these stones. He deplored
the fact that many people made
mighty fine Presbyterians, Bap
tists, Methodists, etc, but were very
That some ? of the Presby
terians preached perseverance of
the saints to the exclusion of
Christ until they would persevere
into hell, .that the Methodists
would preach infant baptism while
the poor little infants were at home
sleeping/down to hell, the Baptists
would cry water, water, and all the
time they were going to a place
where they'd never get a drop,
the Episcopalians at the same
time crying apostolic succession,
they, can very quickly tell you
where you came from, but they
never teil you where you're going.
Mr. Fife related his experience
a short time after his conversion.
HG said that he rented a store
hrnise m the town in which he
lived, and there invited the poor
People to oome and hear about
Jesus. At first five Or six came,
and gradually the crowd became
larger and larger, so ,that the house
was not large enough to hold the
people, many souls were brought
to -Christ, and Mr. Fife carried the
names of the converts to the pas
tors of the different churches, and
most of them were gladly accepted
and h* was greatly encouraged, but
the young Presbyterian minister re
fused'to take them into the church
because he said that they had benn
subjected to undue excitement, and
that he had not been liceused, etc
Mr. Fife then told him that he had
only obeyed what was laid down'in
God's word and that he would be
willing to get up to his neck in mud,
if necessary to save a dying , soul,
and that if he called that excite
ment, he prayed that God would
give him more of it.

It is proposed to organize a Con

Edgefield county. To this end all
the old soldiers are requested to
meet at the court-house on sales
day in January, 1893. Nearly
every county in South Carolina
bas such an organization, why not

once more and fight our battles
over again in memory. Many of
our comrades have gone hence, and

What the Legislature is Doing.
From a Looker-On.
MR. EDITOR: Tho Senate being
up with its business, took a recess
from Friday afternoon till Tuesday
3 p. m., and so many of the senators
went home. Among those, who are
here are McGill, Redfern, Des
Champs, and Timmerman. Edge
field's representatives are. all at
their ..posts, except Hon. W. R.
Parks who will return to-night.
Legislation is progressing fairly
well. Theressa flood of bilis in
troduced as usual which never get
upon the calendar. Among the
important measures which will
come up for consideration are the
Salary Reduction, Railroad,
County Government, Prohibition,
Insurance, Factory Labor, Consti
tutional Convention, Congressional
Redistricting, and State Funding
Bill. One and all of these will
provoke considerable discussion
and, with modifications, will in all
probability, be enaoted into law,
judging from expressions of opin
ion among legislators so far as-we
have been able to obtain them.
Hon. W. H. Yeldell is a promi
nent candidate for Railroad Com
sioner with flattering prospects of
success. This worthy son of Edge
field is both competent and deserv
ing and would doubtless fill the
position with eminent satisfaction
to all concerned.

Short Cotton Crop.
There is no longer any doubt
about the .cotton crop beingj very
short as compared with last year
and the year previous. The move
ment of cotton to date is 1.332,000
bales less than last year, and 834,
164 short of the year before last,
The total amount marketed from
September 1 to December 1
inclusive is 3.572,000 against
4,940,000 and 4,210,000 for last
year and the year befoie. Probably
sixty per cent, of the crop has
already been marketed.. While at
this time last year 55 per cent has
beenjmarketed at very low prices,
is it not reasonable to presume
that the prevailing high prices as
compared with those obtained last
year have served to rush cotton to
the ports, and that, in proportion
to yield, a greater amount of cotton
has already been marketed this
year than last? In the one year.
starvation prices prevailed, and in
the other, living prices.
The crop is short in all sections.
In Texas as well as other states
there has been a curtailment of
acreage, and if it be true that three
fourths of the crop has been
marketed is northern Texas,one can
readily believe that the South has
not produced this year over 6,510,
000 billes. Those who are looking
for cheap cotton will have to wait
for another year. The conditions
are favarble for a firm market.
Present or even betterprices may be
CURIOSITIES EST THE MAIL
Some Bare* hpecimens of Gov
ernor Tillman's Corres,
Governor Tillman frequently
receives some rare curiosities in
the way of correspondence, In
many of tho letters the trifling
rules of spelling, punctuation and
composition are not allowed to
destroy the force of the writer's
sledge-hammer expressions of
their convictions and opinions.
Yesterday the Governor received
two gems, both sparkling with
novel narratives of experience, and
scintillating with suggestions.
The names of the writers are,
for obvious reasons, withheld, but
this detracts nothing from the in
terest of the letters. ' The first
runs es follows :

Chief Executive of S. C., .
Dear Sir : I wrote Your Excell

how the poor, honest people of our
State are being^imposed on by the
cursed lien law. Being myself
experienced in the-^business for ten
years, I don't think anyone is bet

am. My collections has been all

the dollar let out, and in the year
I was obliged to sell at a very lar
ge margin to even hold my own
and I find by the ten years' busi
ness I am about to-end up. that
good, honest, poor people have
been keeping up the lazy negro
and the white raskels. Now the*e
people are ignorant starving them
selves and their families, to pay
their debts wh?r?lthere hat been a
large per cent put on them to make
up for losses on dishonest, lazy
people They are ignorant and need

A Meeting of the Exchange
was held at noon to-day, and the
Mr W. J. Cranston, endorsing
Gov. Tillman in his efforts to
prevent the bottling np of Port
Royal, were adopted.
"Whereas, the attention of the
Augusta Exchange has been called

EXAS TAKES A TURN.
A Ifony, Two Negroes and a Bale
Cotton Clear the Asph?lt.
t a little past 1 o'clock this af
ternoon a one horse wagon, drawn
by ft roan colored Texas pony, with
two Edgeflel darkie s and one bale
of cotton, struck Broad street from
the pony was thorough-bred,
the cotton was dog tail, the wagon
froip. Coskery *& Davison, while
thejtwo negroes were of the gen
uine Edgefield variety-black,
tough and true grit. As the pony
firit stepped upon the asphalt
payement on lower Broad a queer
kind of feeling came over him.
Thxrheavy load he had been pull
ing all day seemed to have parted
company with him and he felt
glad.: When he met the first
electric car, he gave unmistakable
signs of uneasiness. He was
pacified by the driver, who sat
on top of the bale,, and by wordi of
encouragement from the assistant
darkey who occupied the half way
station on the cort?n. Th? roan
however, was not fully satisfied
with the explanations, and when
th? next car came down and met
him at the Confederate monu
ment that pony felt sure that h-1
had broke losse in Georgia.
Acting upon the impulse, he
lost no time in shaking the
asphalt dust from his Texas hoofs
and mode a dat up Broad street
which was simply marvel lous for
its suddeness and business like
movement. As he passed Schnei
derte corner the pedestrians, vehi
cljej^ffbVLeverything else, gave the
little pony and his load a clear
?acki The further up the street
he got the faster he flew. Every
body and every vehicle gave him
ijjie right of way. The driver had
nb purchase or foothold, cons
cpiently could not stop or impede
his gait- by the bit. The little
wagon swayed from side to side
jike a youug pine in a wind storm.
The other negro laid down -across
the bale and swayed with the
wagon, while the driver swore and
prayed alternately. , It was a race
for life and death. As the
ieam passed Coskery & Davison's
store it nacl the appearance of a
shot out of a shovel, and many
thought it was Biela's comet. But
the Texas pony was getting in his
work in true Western style, regard
less of results.
At the juncture of Campb3ll and
Bro?d ho met another car from
furpin Hill. At its appearance
he took out Cambell street towards
the river, where he struck the
plain earth and rough places.
Here a thought came over him
that he was making an exhibition
of himself, and he very quietly
stopped and looked around to see
where he was at.
Fortunately no damage was
done, the wagon was sound, and
the two negroes haw-hawed at the
free show given up Broad.
That pony will never again Bet
foot on Augusta asphalt without
serious protest, and as for electric
cars he will ever entertain a con
tempt.-Augusta Evening News.
