The Best Ever Heard.
Gov." Shep-pard says that the ser

-'Kilgo in the Methodist Church on
last Sunday "was the best he ever
heard." The Governor has heard
the best preachers in the land, and'
wfien he characterizes this effort
as "the best," it means much.
The controversy in our town just
now, and as yet it still rages, is
who preached the best sermon on
last Sundaj Mr. Kilgo in the
Methodist, or Mr. Rice in the
Presbyterian Church. These were
both admirable sermons, and the

We must not go on without saying
a word for Edgefield, and thal
*w?rd is, that congregations in the

are trying to do-display his OWE
merits-but continually pointed
out Christ and the way of salva
tion. It inspired awe and wondei
as we listened to the floods of elo
quence which came from his lips.
When a man forgets himself and
preaches only Christ and Him
crucified, wi rh inspiration and aid
from the infinite God, it is then
that the divinity in man is dis
played. We forgot the ?peaker in

and forcible in thought, eaBy and

The ideas expressed in this dis
course reminded us of Emerson
who is said to have had such an
exalted opinion of human kind as
pto have remarked.to a friend : -If
yojgf knew hp1?mu^??.?i.? ?i vj ne
there is in every human being, you
would fall down on your knees be
fore the humblest beggar- in the
street." On one occasion there was
to be a lecture delivered by Mr.
Emerson and an Irish servant
woman was engaged in the hotel in
the place. It was noticed by the
inmates of the hotel that towards
nightfall she seemed .very much
hurried to finish her work. Some
one said to her, "Why this hurry,
Bridget?" "Oh, Tin going out to
hear Mr. Emerson," she said, "I
always go to hear him lectnre, be
cause ho makes me feel as if I'm
as good as anybody, and I love to
feel that way."
Mr. Rice has a like regard for
humanity, ?nd said he "loved to
think that the sun, the moon, the
stars, the universe, waited upon
him. Electricity in the flashing
lightning has had the same power
since the ages begun, but it re
mained for Mr. Edison to dis
cover its use and bring it under
the control of man." Solomon said
that there was nothing new under
the sun, and iu listening to sermons
we consider them simply remind
ers, for the same ideas have been
expressed on numberless occasions.
This ia-an evidence of the charm
and attractiveness of the gospel,
that the "old, old story" is as pre
cious to-day as it was in the. ages
gone by. One beautiful thought
of the speaker and a suggestive
one was this, that "the manifes
tations of revealed love cannot be
resisted. A hound would at kind
ness die watching over the dead
body of his master; a bird caress
ed will return to the shoulder of;

so much grass. I thought the crops
were pretty clean by the way the

MR. EDITOR: Tuesday, July 4,
found some four hundred people
at Butler's to give audience to the
Alliance revivalists. The day was
calm clear and warm, but the mag
nificent shade under which the
stand was erected and the table
spread, together with the ten
thousand pitchers of lemonade and
innumerable waiters of ice cream
that, beset one on every hand oper
ated ia- tempering to a great degree
the mercili.'ss rays of a July sun.
The exercises were opened with
prayer by Rev. F. St. Clair, after
which he introduced as the first
speaker, Mr. Parks of the Farmer.
He began by saying that he made
no pretensions to being a speaker ;
was not accustomed to public
speaking. All he expected and all
he wanted to do was to talk in a
plain intelligible manner upon one
or more of the great issues of the
day. His topic was the tariff,
which question he said he had
given special study. He dwelt at
some length upon its iniquity, pro
duced statistics showing how under
ther present tariff laws the con?
sumers were being robbed^ and il
lustrated how the Alliance would
soon revolutionize the present state
of affairs, by using , one of the
famous Col. Ham's best and richest
anecdotes, "The'Georgia Crackers
novel method of treating his sick
mule." He said the monopolists
and gold-bugs had long since in
serted tho cane in the mouth of
the masses, but that the latter like
the mule were going to do the
blowing and when the salt and
cayenne pepper reached its des
tination, like the "Georgia
Cracker" "they'd swar they'd
swallowed a bee-gum and a piney
woods saw-mill." In concluding
he urged upon the farmers the
necessity and importance of their
loyal support of the Edgefield
The Rev. J. A. Carson was then
introduced but after a few remarks
generously gave up his time to
Col. Duncan, of the State Ex
change. This was the. Colonel's
first appearance in Edgefield and
the attention which his masterly
speech received warranted him the .
assurance that it was duly appre
ciated. He began by reverting to
the 4th of July, 1776, when the
fishers of our Republic were de
liberating as to the expediency of
disclaiming their allegiance to
Great Britain and relying upon
the justice of their demands
pledged their lives, fortunes, and
sacred honor for their maintenance.
And" to-day said he after 117 years
we see the masses of the United
States in open rebellion not against
a foreign power, but against, a do
mestic enemy in the form of
Iniquitous legislation, which u
less soon repulsed will not on
destroy our liberty but bring ru
to our country and-starvatior
our homes. When the speaker h;
forcibly impressed upon his he?
eis the justice of their deman
and ?arnestly urged them to pre
forward in the fight until victo
and equality before the law w
achieved, he branched off on tl
workings of the exchange and ve
satisfactorily explained what i
important factor it had been

as a source of information and ;
a means of saving them mone
He did not pretend to say that tl

that can be had of the local me

have hisentire stock to select froi
and it is not only more *satisfa<
tory but more convenient to gi
them at home. The speaker ii
sisted, however, that the guan
trade ought to be conducte
through the Exchange. He wf
Bur? that he could save them mone
on their^fertilizers. Their baggin

the Exchange would cost them lesi
explained the cause of lac

POMERY, Iowa, July 7.-Fifty
three dead, seventy-five fatally
injured and 150 with broken
limbs, cuts and bruises more or
less severe. This is what the
tornado of last night accomplished
in the . matter of casualty. The
town o? Pomeroy is one complete
wreck. [There is'scarcely a house
left standing. About fifteen acres
of debris constitute now what was
yesterday a thriving village.
Splinters are all that remain.
Scarcely a tree remains. Piles -of
broken timbers- and occasional
pirces of furniture are all that can
be found of what was once the
largest building in the place.
Two b. -^ed and fifty honses "were
in all destroyed and the money
loss on these and their contents is
placed at $200,000.
The tornado, for such it was,
came'from the northwest. All who
saw it agree that it was not of
the funnel shape species but came
bounding along the prairie like a
huge ball. It was of a dark green
color and was accompanied by a
terrific noise. Many saw it when
it waa. far out of town, Those
gave 'the- alarn nd some were
prepared for the monster when it
reached the village. Most of the
people, however, became panie,
stricken. They ran out of their
houses and fled up the streets
crying and shrieking till struck
by flying timbers or whirling
trees. The cooler ones, howevor,

them,made for two caves in the
southwest part of the town, built
especially for just such occasions
as this. Into one of these '"wes

one fifth. All escaped without a
scratch. It is pretty well agreed
Chat the tornado struck the town
about 6 ;50 o'clock. Half an. hour
before this it was exceedingly hot
and sultry [and eave for a few
small clouds there was no evidence
of the approaching whirlwind. The
clyclone was but of a few minutes
duration and was followed by a
terrific rainstorm which continu
ed at intervals moro or less
throughout the night. The patn of

The death list out in the country
is heavy and many of the neigh
boring towns report many
casualties. In Fairfield, in the
county, the number of dead is
fifteen. Eight more are reported
killed at Storm Lake and many
other places give notice of one or
two deaths. It was not until noon
to-day that the work of rescue
began. By that time there was a
good supply of doctors, not large
enough, however, to care for the
wounded. The ladies of Fort
Dodge went as nurses and there
was a plentiful supply of bedding
and food. As rapidly as possible
the injured were taken to the im
provised hospitals and given
medical attenton. The buildings
were inadequate to the needs of
the injured. A company pf
militia from Fort. Dodge brought
their tents and these were used
for hospital purposes. The Heat
of the sun was very great, the
thermometer rising among the
nineties. The tents were very
hot and deaths among the injured
were very frequent. The intense
heat made it impossible to keep
the bodies of the dead and those
that were not claimed by relatives
or friends and by them buried or
taken away by noon were placed
in the graveyard by the officials.
Forty graves were dug and filled
with the dead up to 9 o'clock this
evening, and at that hour the
Utting lanterns in the cemetery
showed plainly that the work of
burial was going on still.

ile die o? G-old,
Acceding to the wishes of many
physicians and others, Dr. L. E.
Keeley has placed the Double
Chloride of Gold in the form of a
Home Treatment for the benefit of
those who, for any reason, cannot
avail themselves of the Sanitarium
Treatment. Its merits have been
fully tested for more than twelve
years, and we have no hesitation
in pronouncing it to be what the
press has already named
"AN INFALLIBLE CUBE FORDROMNESS."
We are prepared to give all cases
special advice and attention by
correspondence throughout the
treatment and to look closely after
each case from beginning to finish ;
the object being to save the victim
from the Liquor Habit wherever
found, and to certainly make a
Cure in every Case to which the
Remedy is sent. No additional
charge is made for such services.
Report blanks are sent with the
Remedy for Home Treatment, one
of which the patient is requested
to fill out every three days and re
turn to us, which is answered by a
personal letter of advice and in
structions. By this system of Re
port blanks we keep a close watch
over the treatment, taking charge
of it from beginning to finish, and
thus facilitat9 the cure.
The price of the Remedy is $9.00
per pair, and, being a liquid, must
be shipped by express.

PRIZES ON PATENTS.
How to Get 2,500 Dollars
The Winner Has a Clear Gift of
a Small Fortune, and the Losers
Have Patents that may Bring
Them In Still more.
"Would you like to make twenty-five
hundred dollars? If you would, read
carefully what follows and you may
see a way to do it.
The Press Clams Company devotes
much attention to patents. It has
handled thousands of applications for
inventions, bnt it would like to handle
thousands more. There is plenty of
inventive talent at large in this coun
try, needing nothing but encourage
ment to produce pratical results. That
encourgement the Press Claims
Company proposes to give.
NOT 80 HARU AS IT SEEMS.
A patent strikes most people as an
appallingly formidable thing. The idea
is that an inventor must be a natural,
genius, like Edison or Bell; that he
must devote years to delving in
complicated mechancial problems and
that be must spend a fortune on
delicate experiments before he can.
get a new device to a patentable de
gree of perfection. This delusion the
company desires to dispel. It desires to
get into the head, of the public a clear
comprehension of the fact that it is
not the great, complex, and expensive
inventions that bring the best returns
to their authors, but the little, simple,
and cheap ones-the tbings^that seem
so absurdly trivial that the average
citizen would feel somewhat ashamed
of bringing them to the attention of
the Paten ^Office.
Edison says that the profits he has
received from the patents on all his
marvelous inventions have not been
sufficient to pay the cost of his ex
periments. But the man who conceived
the idea of fastening a bit of rubber
cord to a childes ball, so that it would
come back to the hand when thrown
made a fortune out cf his scheme. The
modern sewing machine is a miracle
of ingenuity-the product of the toil
of hundreds of busy brains through a
hundred and fifty years, but the whole
brilliant result rests upon the simple
device of putting the eye of the needle
at the point instead of at the other end.
THE LITTLE THINGS THE MOST VALU
Comparatively rew peopla ] regard
themselves as inventors, but ?almost
everybody has been struck, at one
time or another, with ideas that seemed
calculated to reduce sor? of the little
frictions of life. Usually ajch are ideas
dismissed without further thought.
"Wby" don't the railroad company
make its car windows so that they can
be slid up and down without breaking
the passengers' backs?" exclaims the
traveler. "If I were running the road
I would make them in such a way."
/What was the man that made this
saucepan thinking of?" grumbles the
cook. .'He never had to work over a
stove, or he would have known how it
ought to have been fixed."
"Hang: such a collar button !" growls
the man who is late for breakfast "If I
were in the business I'd make buttons
that wouldn't slip out, or bqpak off, or
gouge out the back-of my neck."
And then the various sufferers for
get about their grievancet and begin
to think of something else. If they
would sit down at the next convenient
opportuni.y, put their id*?as about car
windows, saucepans,and collar but tom,
into practical shape, and then apply
for- patents, they might find themselves
as independently wealthy as the man,
who invented the iron umbrella ring
or the one who patented^the.flfleen
A TEMPTING OFFER."
To induce people to keep track of
their bright ideas and see what there
is in them, the Press. Claims Company
has resolved to offer a prize.
To the person whs submits to it the
simplest and most promising inven
tion, from a commercial point of view,
the company will give twenty-five
hundred dollars in cash, addition to
refunding the fees for securing the
It will also 'advertise the invention
free of charge.
This offer is subject to the following
Every competitor must obtain a
patent for his invention through the
company. He must first apply for a
preliminary search, the cost of which
will be five dollars. Should this search
show his invention to be unpatentable
he can withdraw without further ex
pense. Otherwise he will be expected
to complete his application and take
out a patent in the regular way. The
total expense, including Government
and Bureau fees.will be seventy dollars.
For this, whether he secures the prize
or not, the inventor will have a patent
that ought to be a valuable property
to him. The prize will be awarded by
a jury consisting of three reputable
patent attorneys of "Washington. In
tending competitors should'fill out the

their application :

This is a competition of rather an
unusual nature. It is common to offer
prizes for the best story, or picture, or
architectural plan, all the competitors
risking the loss of their labor and the
successful one merely [selling his for
the amount of the prize. But the Press
Claims Company's offer is something
entirely different. Eaoh person is
asked merely to help himself, and the
one who helps himself to the best ad
vantage is to be rewarded for doing it.
The prize is only a stimulus to do
something that would be well worth
doing without it. The architect whose
competitive plan fora club house

spent his labor on something of very
little use to him. But the person who
