Tobacco Culture. | v
. As a number of our readers pro
pose to go into tobacco culture *j
next year there is one rule should
be borne in mind, that the tobacco
weed partakeb in color and texture
of the soil upon which it is grown,
for instance : a bright gray top soil T
with a yellowish subsoil will pro- i
duce tobacco of high ' color and
grain, in fact this kind of soil '
makes the best and highest priced 1
tobacco, what is called by the trade, t
"wrappers." The filling grades do
best on a gravelly, or sandy soil,
where the subsoil is of a brownish
character. Dark heavy plug to
bacco is grown on deep rich land
with a reddish subsoil.
Hymen at the Altar.
Wednesday morning last, Dec. i
7th, Mr. John K. Wannamaker, of \
Orangeburg, and Miss Chloe Wat
son, of Edgefield, were united in
the holy bonds of matrimony. The
groom is the youngest son of the 11
late Dr. Wannamaker, of Orange

daughter of Mr. John C. Watson,
near Ridge Spring. The ceremony
wa? performed at "Clouds Creek,"
the beautiful country home of the j 1
bride's father, by the Rev. A. B.
Watson, brother-in-law and uncle
of the contracting parties. The,
bride wore a lovely blue serge,
trimmed with feathers and smoke
colored buttons, a traveling dress,
as she was to take the train imme
diately after the ceremony. The
occasion was indeed beautiful and
impressive in its simplicity. After
the solemn exercises a sumptnous
repast was enjoyed. At 2 p. m. the
bride and groom took leave for
their future home in Orangeburg,
where they begin life anew, happy
as the days are long.

Mr. Fife Concludes His M' etings
Mr. Fife was m Edgefield ter
days, and he said Sunday evening
that several persons had told him
that he ought to remain two oi
three weeks longer, but that he
considered it an insult to God tc
think that he would have to staj
in town solong, when the people ol
Edgefield could be wonderfully
blessed in one night if they had
sufficient faith. Tho meetings
closed Tuesday evening.
A wonderful work has been done
in our midst, and we hope that the
good seed sown may bring forth
an abundant harvest. We believe
tfie chief reasons for Mr. Fife's
success in the work is his utter
dependence on his Master, his
faith, and nia reliance on the
promises of God. He holds to the
book of God's word and makes
continual references to it, and we
know that there is more true power
in that than in pages of man's
On Monday morning Mr. Fife
preached on Forgiveness. He Baid
bhat the people in Edgefield doubt
less thought they were having a
grand meeting, but that he wasn't
satisfied, and that something must
je wrong. He believed that there
ar ere numbers of people in Edge
ield at enmity with each other,
ind he desired that they would be
-econciled. During a song, num
bers of people become reconciled
ind there wore many hearty hand
ibakes. Mr. Fife said that God
vouldn't listen to the prayers of a
nan who had malice in his heart,
since that meeting still greater
;ood has been accomplished in our
own. Sunday afternoon Mr. Fife
?reached a sermon to the colored
>eople. The Opera House was
xowded, and the gallery was filled.
Places were reserved for the
rhite people who desired to go,
.nd quite a number were present:
ir. Fife said that you could judge
he spiritual ii of a place by the
.mount of it th&t the colored peo
ile displayed, and that the colored
eople in Edgefield were but a bit
aore enthusiastic on the subject
f religion than the whites and
hat they, the whites, were frozen
3 death. They sang their familiar
ymns, and also the "Old Time
Religion" and "I'll be There When
he General Roll is Called."
Every one is delighted with Mr.
'ife, and we hope that it may fall
o our lot to have him in our town
gain ere long.

A Bright Letter from a Bright
Edgefield Boy at Wofford.
DEAR ADVERTISER : Super-abund
ance of work and scarcity of local
items together, have kept us silent
quite a while. Another thing, the
sweeping Democratic successes hav
ing borne us bodily into the ethe
real regions where we did nothing
but sing the praises of Democratic
triumph, and holler for Cleveland,
and from which regions we had
hardly come before it was an
nounced that Ernest Gary (hurrah
for Edgefield I ) had been elected
Judge, (hurrah for Gary 1) With
all this we, could not write foi "ex
uberating" even if we had had
locals pouring in on us faster than
the fall of autumnal leaves.
What is it that Edgefield wautB
that she doesn't get?
We notice with pride that Edge
field's delegation is making itself
felt in Columbia. Every one we

With a Constitutional conven*
tion and a change in the area of
counties, why can't Edgefield be
divided and the Saluda section
be given a court house?
Let some young man, with the

prosperity and the advancement of
the Saluda section at heart, be
ready two years hence to advocate
a division of the county and win
forever the love and gratitude of
that noble people.
"Uncle" George Tillman is right
when he says the day is not fai
distant when we must and will
have smaller counties, and a nat
ural sequence of that will be more
towns, more railroads, more and
far better schools-a greater diffu
sion of knowledge-more energy
more intellect, and a prosperity
unprecedented. Let us cut up th*
big counties, draw the people neaiei
together in the isolated district?

One Man Killed And Two Mor
AIKEN, S. C., Dec. 12.-Oneo:
the saddest tragedies that has eve]
occurred in the annals of our cit)
took place here this evening at ri
o'clock, in which Mayor Chafes an<3
Chief of Police Gaston were proba
bly mortally wounded and Capt,
T. G. Lamar killed. This afternoon
Mayor R. A. Chafee received a tele
gram from Mr. Lamar's brother
stating that he (Lamar) had left
their mines under the influence of
whiskey with a pistol and the
avowed intention of killing him.
The Mayor notified Chief of Police
Gaston of the telgram so that he
would not be taken unaware. Lamar
reached the city about 6 o'clock
and went immediately to Blaylock
& Co.'s saloon and began to- drink.
Upon being approached by Mayor
and Chief Gaston,Lamar said that
he would willingly submit to arrest
and started out of the bar with
them. When they reach8dihe>door
he drew his pistol andy shot Mayor
Chafee, and then turned to shoot
Chief Gaston, who struck him with
his club. Lamar then staggered
and shot him, and turned to Chafee.
again but Chief Gaston had by this
time drawn his pistol and. shot
Lamar through the heart. Chafee
and Gaston were - immediately
taken to their homes in carriages
and Lamar to the Knights of
Pythias Hall, where he will remain
under the vigil of members of the
order until the coroner arrives in
The trouble grew out of the
arrest and incarceration of Lamar
some weeks ago by Chief Gastm
and Mayor Chafee. Lamar at that
time was ill-treateng his family
and at their instigation was ar
rested and lodged in jail. It will be
remembered that be,while drinking
had a shooting affray with Mr. H.
H Jordan on the streets a few
months ago, and since that time
has at intervals been drinking
heavily. He was, when sober, a
most amiable husband and father
and splendid financier. But, like
most men, drink completely
dethroned his reason.
Mayor Chafee is shot through
the stomach and Gaston through
the left lung.
Lamar was senior member of the
big kaolin firm of Lamar Bros.,
and was loved and respected by all
who knew him. He leaves a wife
and three childran. Mayor Chafee
is one of the most prominent gen
tlemen in the city and county.
Chief Gaston is a gentlemen es
teemed by every one and a fine
Those nearest to them hope for
the best, but grave doubts of
their recovery are entertained.
ANOTHER ACOOUNT OF THE AFFAIR.
AIKEN, S. C., Dec. 12.-Aiken
had a big sensation which will
not soon be forgotten, This after
noon Mayor R. A. Chafee received
a telegram from Mr. Cal. Lamar
brother of Thomas G. Lamar, the
kaolin king, that T. G. Larmar
was coming to Aiken from Lang
ley and swore vengeance against
T. G. Lamar has been on a num
ber of periodical drunks, and
Chafee fined him once or twice.
This evening at 6:45, Lamar drove
up in the city andwenttoBlalocks
& Co.'s to get a drink. While
drinking, Mayor R. A. Chafee and
Chief of Police Robert Gaston
walked up oh either side of him
and arrested him. He told them
to wait till he was through drink
ing and he would go with them.
When they got to the door Lamar
had his hands in his overcoat
pocket, and shot Mayor Chafee
through the same in the abdomen.
Pulling his pistol instantly, he shot
at Chief Gaston, but missed him.
Chief Gaston clubbed him to his
knees. Lamar fired and shot Gas
ton through the left lung just be
low the heart, then Chafee fired
and shot Lamar through the heart.
Lamar fell down on the sidewalk
and was a dead man. The body
was moved across the street to the
Knights of Pythias Hall, of whicn
he was a member, and his wife and
children notified. While the best
is hoped for, Messrs. Chaffee and
Gaston are dangerously wounded.
Thos. G. Lamar, the dead man, was
a power in the kaolin business and
a thorough business man.
Messrs. Chafee and Gaston did
nothing but their duty, and the
city is sad tonight on account of
the sad occurrence.

And a good lamp
must be simple; when it is not simple it is
i not good. Simple, Beautiful, Good-these1
(words mean much, but to see The Rochester"
will impress the truth more forcibly. All metal,
tough and seamless, and made in three pieces only,<
it is absolutely safe and unbreakable. Like Aladdin's
of old, it is indeed a "wonderful lamp," for its mar

softer than electric light and more cheerful than either.
Look for Uils stamp-THB ROCHESTER. If the lamp dealer has n't the genuine
Rochester, and the style you want, send to us for our new illustrated catalogue,
