Well, Mr. Editor, have all the
people up your way sold off their
cotton seed? They seem to be go
ing wild about it here', ?nd are

hood. If they don't make a break
soon, they will not have enough
left to plant. Probably they think
they are making money, but the
fertilizing companies will sell the
meal back to them for moro than
they sold the seed. Then having
made the oil clear, they will sell it
also to them for fifteen cents a
pound. Where then is the poor
t?lan's money? In the big man'fl
pocket, where it will remain as
long as the sun shiues and the
earth turns on its axis.

Our Newberry College Letter.
MR. EDITOR : Since I wrote last,
I have been on a visit to the well
known Little Mountain in Lexing
ton county, South Carolina. The
joint conference was in session
there and, of course, I had a plea
sant time. Owing to the.inclement
weather not many of the ministers
and delegates were present.
The young ladies of that section
were out in their best style, for
they are stylish and some of them
looked just fine. From the way
the young men seem .to appreciate
their company, they must be, to
use an old expression," worth their
weight in gold."
The boys of the college and girls
of the town of Newberry have cer
tainly headed off the whole Col
umbian Exposition. Last Friday
night they gave a very unique little
exposition. They have.the picture
of the affair, so I am told. I guess
they anticipate selling them to
those who may aim to visit the
great World's Exposition, so they
will know what to expect when
they get there. To use the expres
sion-of one of the boys, the pleas
ure enjoyed by those who had the
privilege of seeing this exposition,
This evening we had a very live
ly discussion, in tho Excelsior So
ciety, over the question, "w ?uld it
be expedient for South Carolina
to abolish the lien law?"* One of
the senior's represented the State
PS a great factory/ run by provis
ions as. an engine, the farmers as
the big wheel, the business world
law as a band that connects them
together and:keeps them running.
Since the connecting link., the lien
law, ii imperfect,^he argues that
we ought to abolish it and connect
them by a "cash basis." We. the
farmers of Edgefield, have been
arguing for a long time that the
farmers constitute the "big wheel,"
but the rest of the world can't see
it that way.
I? Three cheers for the "dispensary
.bill." .. Although I voted for strict
prohibition, yet I am pleased to
get th it much. It is certainly a
step in the right direction, it will
place liquor out of sight, if not en
tirely out of reach, of our boys and
that.in itself is enough to recom
mend it toan unbiased mind. If
we can only keep the boys sober,
drunkenness in the near future,
WWI become a crime,
. -The most notorious of the time."
When this comes, and the drift
of opinion turns against the liquor
trafile, then we can rise and unite in.
one fell.stroke, obliterate the curse,,
drunkenness, from the old Pal
metto 8tate. .
It took the children of Israel
forty years to get into the Promised
Land, four thousand years to pre
pare them for the coming Messiah,
and the great church reformation
of the sixteenth century was in
course of preparation, for hundreds
of years before the time of Luther
and his colleagues : so prohibition
will have to be brought about by
a Blow process. "The world was
not made in a day," is as true to
day as it was when uttered. "The
highest piety," says Dr. Hickock,
"is the end of all moral govern
ment," but we all know'that moral
advahcement'is very slow. So we
ought to bo patient until these
great evils can be rightly corrected
and not rush headlong into them
without consideration or prepara
tion, ; .
College work is still progressing
in the usual way. The health of
the boys is very good. To-day we
had quite a pleasant time .planting
trees on the campus. Dr. Holland
had some trees brought in this
morning and we planted them and
named them after, our best girls.
Do you suppose they will grow ?

News of the victory was rec?ived
in Columbia very quickly after it
became known in Charleston, and
very naturally Governor Tillman
and the other members of the ad

for victory and therefore was not
surprised at the result. He added
that instructions had already been
given for other Sheriffs through
out the State to, proceed as did
Sheriff Nance wherever necessity
f or .such action exists.
The effect of this back-down on
the part of the. railroad company
will be that the railroads in South

One among the first tirings to be

outrageous law which subjects,

. The highest medical authorities
in the land say emphatically that
the. vegetable products known as

are inferrior to animal fat in no

sensible men found to- base such
action upon, yet so . poweful were
the" hog intesests, backed by the
dairy men and others interested
that the oleomargarine bill passed.
St) rigid, exacliag and arbitrary
is this lrw, that few pealers are
willing to risk the penalties, and
owing to the heavy tax; those who
take out license are forced to
chnrge such prices as distroy the
natural and legitimrte competition.
, There ought to be such pressure
brought to bear upon the present
c?dgress from every man who
grows cotton seed, every man who
is a consumer of sard or butter,

Ex-President Hayes did not'
carry a watch, the reason for
which peculiarity illustrates one
of the traits of his character.' It
appears that in his younger'days
the watch- he then carried was
the cause of sending two men to
the penitentiary. It was stolen
from his pocket} the thief was
captured, trid, convicted and sent
to the penitentiary for. a term of
years. Mr. Hayes recovered his
watch, and a second time it was
stolen. The thief turned^ out t? be
a poor man with a large family,
and after he was sent to the
penitentiary ;Mr. Hayes came to
the conclusion that he would get
rid of the cause of as much trouble
to his fellow men. Since then he
never owned a watch.

"Seeing is Believing."
And% a good lamp
must be simple; when it is not simple it is
I not good. Simple, Beautiful, Good-these1
|words"rmean 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
velous light is purer and brighter than gas light,
softer than electric light and more cheerful than either.
Look for tilla stamp-THU ROCHESTER. If the lamp dealer bas n't the genuine
Rochester, and the style you want, send to us for our new illustrated catalogue,
iand we will send you a lamp safely by express-your choice of over 3,000
,1 varieties from the Largest Lamp Store in the world.
