by Jones a few years ago. The

on a bed 8 feet x 6 feet and five
six inches apart. On this bed
he scattered three or four bushels
of cotton seed, and over the cotton
?seed he spread pine stiaw, and
turnad 'em loose, not working
them at all. The result of this
mode of planting without culture
was the big onion above mentioned.

Satan Worked in 'Em.
During the late revival services
in our Methodist church, Mr.
Smith, after one of his sermons,
went down into the congregation
to talk, as was his custom, to the
people concerning their souls' wel
fare. He approached a pew in
which there were three young men,
supposed to be journeying on the
broad road that leads to destruc
tion. Upon being abjured to turn
from their sinful ways, however,
one of them remarked that he was
already a member of the Baptist
church and had a lively hope of
walking the golden streets. Tho
second one said he was a deacon
in the Baptist church, and the
third asserted that he was study
ing for the Baptist ministry. Mr.
Smich finding himself on a cold
trail moved on, but found out af
terwards that there was not a word
of truth in all the young men had
said, and in a subsequent sermon
gave them away, declaring that
"they knew they were lying and
he knew they were lying at the
time." Now, who were thtse three
young men? The ADVERTISER is
authorized to offer a suitable re
ward for their names with proof
to convict, said names to be black
listed and sent on to President
Cleveland so that they may never
hold office, not even a fourth class

This Christian gentlewoman,
well known in Edgefield and a
member of the Edgefield Baptist
church, died on the 13tti of May
inst., at the home of her youngest
daughter in Brooks County Geor
gia, aged eighty-two years. Mrs.
Miller was a native of Sumter
County and was born near the
High Hills of Santee. Her father
was Dr. James Haynsworth of that
county and her husband the late
Col. C. W. Miller. Bom to af
fluence and reared in luxury, with
all her associates and environ
ments of the society world, 6he
at an early age cast in hr>r lot with
the people of God and, leaving the
church of her parents because
she believed it right to do so,

in those days was like a light set

gave abundant evidence that the
faith she had lived by was the
faith to die by. Her last words
were, "I am not afraid, the Sa

hope! A joyous transition! A
resurrected saint !
Uncle Bennett's Way.
Seeing in the ADVERTISER two
weeks ago how Clemson College
made a second crop of Irish pota
toes Uncle, Bennett Holland
brought us in a basket of this
year's crop of his own raising, and
told us how he made two crops of
Irish potatoes every year. "Seven
teen years ago, this spring," said
he, "I planted a crop of Irish po
tatoes in the utual way. I covered
them deep with pine straw. When
grabbling time came, I grabbled
uever dug, but always grabbled
when I wanted potatoes, and never
taking all from a hill. Late in the
summer I put more pine straw on
them and in this way secured a tall
crop. Again in spring I put on
more pine straw. This mode I've
been repeating for seventeen years
and have never planted a potato
since the first year. I always have
an abundance of good sized pota
toes in the spring and fall. Of
course the potatoes come up much
thicker now than they did at the
first planting, they are scattered
all over the bed, in fact, but as
they are never worked this does'ut
make any difference. It is really
an advantage as you get more po
tatoes. By this method you can
hardly have them too thick.
There are three things to remem
ber in this way of raising potatoes ;
alway s grabble, never dig; always,
leave some in the hill ; keep them
covered with pine straw."
Elmwood Items-"Work While
It is Yet Day," a Good Motto.
MR. EDITOR: The weather has
been entirely too cool for cotton
and corn to do well for the past
two weeks, stands are generally
good, but cotton looks very bad
and is not doing much. The cut
worm has seriously injured tho
stand of corn and done muoh
damage. The oat and wheat crop
is g?nerally sorry on account of
cold weather and drought; about
one half crop upon an average
will be made.
Farmers are generally hard up
on account of raising too much
cotton and failing to make plenty
of corn and meat, and it would be
true, too, to say they don't work
enough. They do not stick close
enough to business, and lose en
tirely too much time. If they
worked as hard and stuck to busi
ness like merchants aod town peo
ple generally do they would be far
more successful, prosperous, and
independent. Some men complain
and say they have no luck. I ara
not surprised at all that they don't
have any luck because they don't
work and manage as they should.
The best way I always found to
get anything was to work for it,
and work, and keep working on,
and not be afraid of work. A man
in a great measure makes his own
luck by his good work and close
attention to business. If I could
instill into our people the great
importance of sticking to work,
and close attention to business, I
would then look for more prosper
ous times, and a better living for
the people. What is more the
matter than anything else, the
farmers don't work enough. How
the. people do love to go about to
public places, such as picnics,
barbecues, and political meetings
to hear the speeches, and to Edge
field C. H. on salesdays to hear the
news generally, but I tell you that
won't make corn and cotton grow,
and put bacon in the smoke bouse,
you better believe it won't, but
plenty of work in the right way
will, just assure aBgunis iron.
If you don't believe it, try it and
see, it will do you good.

Edgefield for Texas in December,
1865, and last winter-an interval
of twenty-seven years-was my
first trip back there,' and I must
admit that there had been greater
changes than I was prepared to see.
I have often travelled the Edge
field roads in my imagination just
as they were when I left, but when
I crossed the Savannah river I
could see the difference; the
whole face of the country had
changed ; lands that had natural
forest on it when I left has been
cleared up, worn out and has
grown up in pine-thickets ; I recog
nized all the houses, but in travell
ing along the road the only way I
could locate myself was by
rocks. I could not see that ?

A Visit to thc Coosaw Phosphate
MR.-EDITOR: I thought a line
or two from this place might be of
passing interest to some of your
readers. Leavius home on the
15th inst., I reached Beaufort on
the following evening, where I
spent the night, and the following
day in visiting some of the phos
phate works near there. We came
to this place yesterday morning
and began the "moisture test" at
Coosaw phosphate works with Gen.
Wm. Stokes, of Early Branch, and
Mr. Comvoysiers, cf Port Royal,
who are acting with me. This
moisture test is instituted for the
purpose of ascertaining the per
centage of loss between the crude
and dried rock, and to establish
uniformity in that among the
different phosphate companies
mining in Coosaw river and other
At present there is no uniform
rate in that respect among them.
Coosaw employs variously from
two hundred to five hundred hands
in all departments of their work.
The company complains of not
making money nevertheless. Yet
the time once was when their
dividends were enormous, com
pared to incomes from other lines
We met here our genial friend
Dr. Hutson, who formerly lived at
Edgefield. He is the popular
physician of this village. He
made inquiry of many Edgefield
folks and particularly of his
special friend Mr. James M. Cobb,
and complained that he had never
honored him with a visit.
It is quite in contrast with our
loose Way of farm-business to wit
ness the system of conducting the
labor of one of these large phos
phate works. Everything moves
with clock-like regularity. There
are no evidences of any farm work
carried on on this island so far as
we have observed. It seems to be
used for pasturage for goats and
cattle. The largest flock of goats

Cleveland and Crisp.
There was a a good deal of talk
soon after Cleveland's election of
his opposition io Speaker Crisp,
and that he was throwing his
influence to defeat him for speaker
of the new house. There was
nothing more than conjecture in
this sensation,' at the time, and
there seems to be nothing at all to
support it now, President Cleve
land and Speaker Crisp have had
several interviews, and both seem
to think more highly of each other
after each meeting. Their last
conference is described in an
interview with Speaker Crisp in
which he is quoted as follows in
?he Galveson News' corres
Mr. Crisp said, in regard to the
congiess, that if it would repeal
the federal election laws ; repeal
the 10 per ceut, tax on the state
banks; reform and lower the tariff
and pass an income lax law, the
democratic party would be ' good
for twenty-five years control of the
country. He said that tb'e&e acts
would satisfy the country and
allay the friction in the west and
"What does the President think
of the proposition?" the correspon
dent asked, and he replied :
"I do not know how he stands
on all of them, but he certainly is
in favor of a reduction of the
tariff and the repeal of the 10 per
cent, state bank tax."
"Do you think he favors an
. "That is a subject he is giving
most serious thought. I cannot
state how he stands on it but a
few days ago a congressman who
is a strong believer in it and who
was a farmers candidate besides
being a democrat, called on him
and had a long talk with him on
the income tax. This congressman
carried with him a speech on the
income- tax delivered by Robert
Reed, from which he quoted. Mr.
Cleveland was much interested
and stated that as the book con
taining the speech was not in the
white house library ho would like
for the congressman to leave him
his copy for his inspection, which
"I think," continued the speaker
"that Mr. Cleveland is in thorough
accord with the trend of the
democratic party and I know that
ne appreciates to the highest ex
tent the present conditions of the
Mr. Crisp seemed highly pleased
with the president and expressed
himself as being half-way as
tonished every time he met him
at his wonderful grasp of public
There is nothing in this which
indicates any unfriendliness be
tween the President and the
speaker. They seem to understand
each other very well and President
Cleveland has had several confer
ences with Crisp c!.?arly im
plying that he is getting things
thoroughly understood between
the executive and the director of
the legislative branch of the gov
ernment. There is nothing sur
prising in the fact that Mr.
Clevela nd is reported by Mr. Crisp
as favoring the repeal of the ten
per cent tax on state bank issues,
the reform of the tariff, etc. There
is no other position he could
occupy. The democratic party
outlined very fully the policy for
its adminstration in the event of
the election by the people, and it
is to be supposed that Mr. Cleve
land will carry out that policy.
The salient points in the party
platform aro :
I. "We pledge the democratic
party, if it be intrusted with
power" "to the defeat of the Force
bill ; no negro domination.
II. "We declare it to be a
fundamental principle of thedemo
cratic party that the Federal
Government has no constitutional
power to impose or collect tariff
duties, except for the purpose of
revenue only." We denounce the
McKinley Tariff law." and we
promise its repeal." No Mclvinley
bill ; no Protection.
III. "We denounce the sham
reciprocity" of the republican
party. No false trade interchange ;
no barrier of prohibitive tariff
IV. "We demand the rigid
enforcement of the laws made to
prevent and control" the trusts
and combinations which are
designed to enable capital to
secure more than, its just share of
the joint product of capital and
labor, a natural consequence of
the prohibitive taxes which pre
vent the free competition which
is the life of honest trade." No
trusts; no prohibitive taxes for
V. "We hold to the use of both
gold and silver the etandard money
of the country, and silver, without
discriminating against either
metal or charge for mintage," but
"the maintenance of thc parity
of the two metals and the equal
power of every dollar at all times
in the markets and in payments
of debt" shall be insured. No
monoinetalism ; every dollar of
equal intrinsic value with every
