It seems that every railroad in
the State is going into the hands
of a receiver now.
All lue dispensaries in the

Amidi6t his multiplicity of
dutis Gov. Tillmen even found
time to write an article for the
Southern Cultivator for December,
.entitled "Element of Intensive
Farming." It is short but one of the
ablest papers he ever wrote.
A rather curious coincidence oc
curred in the United States Court I
in Columbia last week. The name
of Bon Tillman was called, when a
coal black negro stepped lip. He
was taken before the grand jury
when it was found out that he was
from Edgefield, and around hume
he bore the name of "Governor."
The charge against bim was dis
.missed by tho grand jury and Ben
vent his way rejoicing.
Mr. 0. W. Buchanan, recently
fleeted attorney-general, is a son
in-law of Hon Gov G. Tillman.
The Columbia Register says: "He
is a bri11 ian t lawyer and is
thoroughly grounded in the prin
ciples of his profession ; s Assis

golden oppions at the hands of

to Rev. A. B. Watson in the pulpit
last Sunday morning. His text
was suggested by Mr. Watson's
departure, "a good miine is rather
to be chosen than great riches ; and
loving favor rather than silver and
gold.71 Mr. Watson had chosen this
good name, not selfishly but
founded on that greater requisite,
a blameless conscience. We voice
the sentiment not of Dr. Gwaltney
alone, but of the whole town in
saying that Mr. Watson's life has
been and is a benediction to his
The Rev. W. G. Rollins, from
the eastern part of the State, is
canvassing Edgefield county for
the sale of a remarkable book, en
titled "Character Sketches." The
author is a Baptist minister, but
the introductory chapter was writ
leu hy Bishop 0. P. Fitzgerald of
the Methodist Church. In this
chapter tho good Bishop, after
speaking in highest terms of the
author's Christian character, goes
on to say; "I cordially commend
this product of his genius. The
genius of caricature is inborn
and ineradicable. It is God given,
and like every other natural endow

pose. It is a good th jug to wrest

of the enemy and wield it for truth
and righteousness. The funny
pictures no more bolong tn Satan
than the good tunes. Tee hook is
not sectarian partisan, or personal.

Opera House Entertainment.
There will be a delightful enter

the night of the 22nd of December
under the auspices of Mr. Weaver,
a most laughable comedy.

Gov. Tillman has given to Mrs
Annie H olson, of our town, a
Christmas present in the shape of
a pardon for her son Haile, who
had been sentenced to twelve
months in the Barnwell jail. Haile
was a very youthful offender, and
we have no doubt the pardou will
make a better man of him than if
he had served a full twelve months
We Stand Corrected.
In our last issue we stated that
Hon W. R. Parks had voted for the
salary reduction bill and our other
Edgefield members of the Legisla
ture had voted against it. We got
our information from the News
and Courier, but we are rejoiced
to know that oil the delegation are
in favor of a salary reduction bill
and have so veted. We take ofi'
our hats to the Edgefield delega
tion and sa}': Give 'em fits, knock
'em high !
The New Appointments.
The Methodist State Conference
held in Sumter last week has ad
journed. The appointments were
read out last Sunday, and the fol
lowing will be of interest to Edge
field county people: Rev. A. B.
Watson, who has preached at Edge
field so acceptably for the past four
years, goes to Greenwood. M. N.
Brabham comes to Edgefield. Mr.
Herbert remains at Johnston. Mr.
Travwick remains at Batesburg.
T. ?. Ligon at Leesville. E. G.
Brice goes to McCormick, in place
of J. M. Steadman, who goes to
Lancaster. E. A. Wilkes goes'to
Parksville, in place of B. O. Berry,
who has a charge in Chester county.
W. W. Jones will preach at N.,rth
Edgefield. O. N. Rountree at But
ler. J. E. Beard goes to Granite
ville, and C. W. Creighton has
charge of the Santee Circuit in
Thc Edgefield Farmer.
This paper has ceasi d to make
ils weekly and welcome visits ti
its patrons. Whether this will be
permanent or enly temporary, we
are not advised. The Farmer sus
pended, not tor want of apprecia
tion or ou account of editorial
short-comings. Editor James T.
Parks wielded a trenchant pen,
n.nd his editorial deliverances were
widely copied. But friends, coun
trymen, and lovers, The Farmer
went down because "we are too
thicK to thrive." Thr>' is the long
and short of it. We are all hard
up-Jim Bacon, Jim Parks, and
Tom Adams-we all sing the same
song, and if neither one of the
Jims will sing it for you, come
around to the ADVERTISER office
you can hear it there any time of
day. Here it is:
Hard up, oh hard up.
Vor W?*nt of food and fire,
And we have to tie our shoes up
With little bits of wire:
Our friends and relations
They all turn up their nose
Arid rate us as vagabonds
For the want of better clothes.
Hard up, oh hard up,
We never can forget
The days when we were hard up,
Though we MAY UK well off yet.
Card froin Hon. W. R., Parks.
EDITOR ADVERTISER: In your
last issue, Dec. 7th, I noticed that
you give me credit for being the
or.iy one of the Edgefield Repre
sentatives that favored or voted
for the salary reducion bill-a
measure upon which, and in favor
of which, we were all supposed to
be pledged. Not wishing to enjoy,
alone, th* credit which belongs,
alike, to my colleagues, justice to
them compels me to state that each
and every one of them voted for
some, if not all, of the proposed
amendments to said bill. Indeed,
some of our delegation offered
amendments vA)\oh were carried.
Knowing that my col leagues are
entitled to the same credit aB my
self and believing that it was un
intentional, on your part, to put
them in the poeifionpf having re
pudiated their pledges to oeonomy,
I write this that they may appear
aright before their constituents.

MR. EDITOR: Quiten party left
Edgefield on Tuesday morning
last to attend the Augusta Exposi
tion. We arose while the stars
were yet shining, and reached the
depot on that chill winter morn
ing, but we were soon comfortably
resting in the warm and cozy car|
which was just full enough to
make it pleasant, so we leaned
back on our crimson plush seale
and watched the animated faces
Capt. Greneker is the most per
fect railroad conductor in the!
world. We passed the towns of J
Trenton, Aiken, and Graniteville,
and at quite an early hour rolled
into the gay and progressive city
We left the cars at Broad street,
which displays large and handsome
stores and passed inviting win
dows full of pictuies, dry goods,
and fruits from every clime.
Oranges, bananas, cocoanuts, lem
ons, Malaga grapes, and California
pears all breathing of blue sky
and balmy air, contrasted.with the
chill winter morning and the frosty
We took in the Arlington Hotel,
the bell-tower, picturesque St.
Paul's, and Dr. Burrow's church,
where the Baptist Congress was
hpld. The streets were thronged
with people. The Congress and the
Exposition combined, accounted
for this dense mass. Turning into
Tallifiero street, and passing under j
the shade of lovely oaks and elms,
and admiring many and beautiful
residences, we stopped an hour
with a friend, who has a charming
home, and who is also a delightful
The stay there, however, had to
be brief, and gaining thc street
once more we reached the electric
car. which seemed not to have a
seat for a single one more. The
conductor, nevertheless, declared
that theri was plenty of room, so
we packed in like sardines, and
rolled out to the fuir grounds,
catching on the way a view i.i the
dim distance of the stately orphan
asylum, Bon Air Hotel, and then
the Exposition building loomed up
Falling off the car haphazzard,
we pushed along to the entrances, |1
presented our tickets and passed
through. What a scene of en
chantment presented itself! An
immense structure and long halls
filled on each and ever "de, artis
tically constructed log cabins,
wheat, corn, cotton, and piles of |
mammoth pumpkins which would
have served Cinderilla for her|
Our eyes fairly ached as we bent
overlarge glass cases, containing
diamonds, rubies, emeralds, and
the largest topaz in the world, so
they told us. Thomas ? Barton
seem to have taken precedence in
matters musical, from tho number
of blue ribbons on the pianos and
the clashing music they ring out.
"Waltz on forever" floated after us
os we passed down the vista, and
ascended the second story on foot,
not risking our unworthy necks in
The ait department pleased us.
On a good mauy pictures, tapes
tries, and dainty fancy work, we
saw appended the coveted blue
ribbon. One piece of tapestry
touched us. It was sad and lovely,
the beautiful and ill-fated Mary
Stuart resigning her crown to the
infant Charles I. The beautiful
woman, the glittering crown, the
weeping attendants, the group of |
haughty statesmen and warriors
were all portrayed. One beautiful
picture in a niobe was a large one
of Venus, rosy, blushing, lovely,
standing in ashall just risen from
the sea with Cupid crouched near
her. All the time far-famed Bear
den's band chimed out beautiful
music, just beneath us.
Descending to the lower story
once more, we paused in front jf a
group, before a sewing machine,
tand tried in vain to procure one of ?
those gay paper fans, decorated
with plaitings of bright machine
stiched ribbons, but lu vain, and
we contented ourselves with
snatching bright advertisements.
One thing we thought weirdly
beautiful were the caskets, pale
lilac and white velvet, lined with
satin and costly lace, beautiful
and phantom like, with gold
To the real again 1 Jjiinch hour
approaches ? See pretty waitresses |
flitting about the dainty cafes!
Beautiful dark eyed girls and
golden haired maidens, in white
caps and lape trimmed aprons,
piquant and Frenchy, ready tq
serve chocolate, dainty cakes,
coffee, tea, and steaming oyster
stews at your gracious will, and
having partaken, ?pfreehed, but
with lightened purses, we press on.
The Bohemian glass display was
a lovely oi.e. We had a glimpse
also ol' the Cori ia? Engine, ip Pay
& fannahill's exhibit.
Leaving the building in the rear
where there was warmth and beauty
we walked out into the frosty air
of the grounds, and there witness
ed the bicycle races, and looked
at the once wonderful Ferris
wheel. We did not enter the circus
where at the entrance stood the
beautiful ballet dancers, but passed
on near venders of hot waffles,
onions, and garlic not heeding
their urgent importunities to par
take. Afternoon brought us again
into the cbarmedi Exposition
building with its altar of rose
scented atmosphere, its warmth,
beauty, and light.
Passing down ihe Midway Plais
ance we viewed a bewildering
pageant: Japanese, Chinese, Rus
sians, Poles, Irish, French, Ameri
can-Indiau8, all in a glittering
train as they glide by.
The afternoon, however, must
be spent in heari?g a musicale and
Bearden's band agai? sounds forth
in heavenly strains. The director
marks perfect timo with his baton.
Beautiful and gifted Alice Ray
mond came forward, fresh and
beaming, drawing from her cornet
silvery peals entrancing the lis-1
teners. She skimmed off the stage,
is encored, and returned looking
like a dewy rose.
The R?chet brothers also charm
ed us in their flying trapeze per
formance. Two slender, handsome,
dark-eyed youths, graceful in the
dance, but our eyes fain would we
have covered, lest we should see
them dashed to pieces. Then
coming on in tights with powdered
hair and facRS, living Greek stat
uary, they were the perfection of
art. They were especially a fine
impersonation of tho "Wrestlers."
Well, night came on apace, and
we had to tear ourselves away
from fairy laud, dart out, throw
ourselves pellraell into the elec
tric car, and fly towards Augusta.
The day was closing and our time
was up. Goo?!by la belle Augusta.
On entering the train we again
-saw our prince of railroad officials,
Captain Greneker and genial
Frank Tompkins. Our old bones
were chilled and tired out. As wo
leaned back and closed our eyes,
we were lulled to sleep by an
impromptu concert. Our doziug
?enses took in the musicale and
iilso a flirtation in front of us
carried on by a very pretty girl
md three young men.
The train stopped with a jerk!
midnight, and historic Edgetield!
All honor to the enterprise,
progress and vim of Augusta.

nounced to-day at 12:30 o'clock.
While not altogether uuoxpected,
yet it is doubly sad, when we real
ize that all have lost a friend, a
physician, and a neighbor. Dr.
Burkhalter's Christian fortitudo
was full) exemplified during his
professional career, and was made
still more beautiful as his life
slowly ebbed awSy upon his bed of
iong affliction. His kind and gen

pressed upon all.
