We wish to all our readers a merry
Christmas, and an abundance of
turkey and trimmings. We hear
that oM Santa Claus has gone off
and got married, and to a widow
at that, and they do say that Mrs.
Santa Claus has taken all hie toys
and things for her first husband's
children. We don't know how
much truth there is ID this report,
but it will be well for parents gen
erally to tell the children about it
so they will not be disappointed if
old Santa should come with alight
pack or fail entirely.

On Monday morning last Mrs.
Lizzie G. Wells, the beloved wife
of Mr. Jas. P. Wells, of Horns
Creek-a lovable womal., and a
true Christian, departed this life,
leaving a broken-hearted husband,
five children, and friends without
number, to mouro her seemingly
untimely demise. But we have
every assurance to know and be
lieve that her immortal soul is
"now resting, sweetly resting," iu
that other and that better land
enjoying eternal bliss beyond the
realms of time. Mrs. Wells was
noted throughout her section for
her open candor, kind charitable
disposition, and her honest love
for every one. And in her home
circle-by her wifely devotion aud
motherly care for her loved ones
there was joyous sunshine and
happiness always. Now sorrow
reigueth in that household. And
with the bereaved ones we beg to
mingle our sorrow and extend to
them our warmest sympathies
for truly a noble womau-a"mother
in Israel" has fallen.

DEAR EDITOR: In a recent issue
of your paper there appeared an
article, "A Supposed Suicide," to
which I call your attention. It is
true that Joel Etheredge was found
dead iu his field, but there is no
evidence whatever "that he placed
loaded shells iu a stump ano theu
held his head over it." Nor do I
know from what source you re
ceived the information "that his
daughter married against his
This is utterl}' false, because he
readily consented to the marriage.
He was unwell for several months
prior to his death, complaining
with his head, and, at time?, suf
fering much from palpitation of
the heart. It will never be known
whether the act was suicidal or
accidental. A more innocent mau
I never knew. He was held in the
highest esteem by all who knew
him. A devoted and affectionate
husband ; a Christian, true and
faithful; a friend in its fullest
meaning, whose friendship was
ever ready to meet the require
ments of a friend. Thus has pass
ed away, under the saddest cir
cumstances, one of our beet and
most useful citizens.

something new every day, an
what he observes has a tendenc
to make him broad and liberal i
his views and sympathetic in hi
nature. Lee Lampkin tells tl
following, which will illustrai
the doctrine the Evening News :
endeavoring to advance-the bij
hearted, real charity of the averaj
drummer, better than all the fir
spun theories we could write abor
them in a month : "On one of m
trips," says Mr. Lampkin, "I wa
down on the -Central of Georgia
and a little incident came unde
my observation that deeply irr
pressed all who saw it. Amonj
the passengers in our coach wer
another drummer a plainly dresse?
feeble old lady and several emi
grants. My brother drummer wa
quite dudish in appearance an
was cracking his jokes and haviu
a jolly .good time, seemingly no
thinking or caring for any one bu
himself. After we had changed car
at Milleu and the conductor corni
to collect the tickets, the old lad;
found that she had lost both he
purse and her ticket. The stern vis
aged conductor requested money o
ticket and told her she would havi
to get off at the next station. Shi
broke into tears and told the cou
ductor that she was on her way t(
the bedside of her son, who wai
sick and perhaps dying, and she
begged him not to put her off.
The only reply she. received was
that "his duty to the companj
compelled him to do many un
pleasant things, but that she would
be compelled to get off." With
that he gave the signal for th?
train to stop.
The poor woman cried out in
her agony, "My boy will be dead
before I see him 1" But before the
train came to a standstill, the
dudish young drummer came for
ward and asked the cause of her
distress, and when she related her
troubles to him he promptly
handed the conductor a bank note,
and tears filled hie eyes as he said
"You shall not leave this train
while I have a dollar. I have an
old mother who prays for me every
night, and if I should fall sick, as
your son has, she would come to
me but she like you, might happen
to the misfortune of losing her
purne, and I know what her dis
tress would be," and the careless
young fellow sat down by the old
lady and beguiled her into smil
ing and looking on the bright
side of things, and at the-next
telegraph station the passengers
saw bim slip a yellow paper into
the hands of the operator, and
when the next station was reached
a messenger boy came on the train
and handed him a telegram, which
read "All danger is past, your son
will live." He gave it to the old
lady. She read it over and over
and then wept for joy. "May God
bless your mother," said she, "and
reward you for the noble kindness
you have done me. I am a poor
woman and can not repay you
even the money you have paid out
for my fare, but I will never for
get you when I pray, and God will
reward you. I shall never cease to
By this time the conductor, who
was so stern and relentless
silently wiped a tear from the
corner of his eye and said :
"Gentlemen, it was my duty to
my employers to collect thiB lady's
fare. Now, here is a $10 bill of
my own money for her," and so
saying he threw it in his cap and
passed it arohnd. When it reached
the old lady the cap was well
nigh full of bills, and when she
disembarked, a good deal richer
than wbftn she left home, it was
the happiest lot of passengers in
that car I ever saw.

! GEEENWOOD COUNTY.
Governor Tillman Interviewed
on The subject Last night.
Columbia Register Dec 15th 1S93.
The friends and advocates of the
new county which it is proposed
to make out of parts of Edgefield
and Abbeville having scored
decided victory in the House are
pressing with all their might to
carry the measure through the
Senate, and the opponents of the
county are working with might
and main to keep that body from
passing the bill.
It is the liveliest fight of the
session and both sides are alert
and aggressive. A phaee of the
"contest which has exci'ed interest
and comment is the attitude of
Governor Tillman whose name
appears on the petition for the
new county and whose signature
thereto was the subject of a spicy
debate between Messrs. Yeldell
and Gary. It is claimed by the
Greenwood people that the Gov
ernor is very anxious for the new
county to be formed, and a re
presentative of The Register,
thinking to learn if this be true,
asked him yesterday what were
his reasons for urging the measure
when so many of his friends were
opposed to it.
He said: "I am not urging it at
all. I signed the petition as a tax
payer and citizen because I own
property near Ninety-Six and ara
in favor of small comities generally
I would be glad to see twenty-five
new counties in South Carolina, as
I know of nothing which would
more rapidly advance us in na
turnal wealth and progress, but I
have taken no other part in the
fight and have never opened my
mouth to a single Senator or mem
ber of the House to get a voU

ernor, "but they do me an injustice.
Tompkins, my private secretary,
working might and main for it
because his house is only nine
miles from Greenwood, while
Edgefield C H. if twenty-five miles
off, and I suppose his activity is
attributed to my wishing the
movement success. The fact is I
care nothing much about it one
way or another. I am in favor of
small counties and more of them,
but I have no special interest in
this new county, except that if it
is established I hope it will be
called 'Gary,' instead of Green
wood., 'Old Mart' was born with
in its borders and all that is
mortal of him now rests there. It
is as little as the State can do to
name a county for him, for we can
never repay the debt we owe him
for his services in 1876."

NOTICE TO INVENTORS.
There was neyer a time in the his

or inventions and improvements in

lankind in the factory and work
hop, the household, on the farm, and
n official life, require continual ac
essions to the appurtenances and
mplements of each in order to save
abor, time, and expense. The political
hange in the administration of the
overnment does not affect the progress
f the American inventor, wt o being

he affairs of government to deter him

SINCE the passage and enforcement
of the Dispensary law in this State
many of our "best citizens" have suf
fered for want of good pure liquor,
which they have been unable to get
even at enormous prices. This long

Rye" a pure double copper distilled 6
year old Rye "Whiskey, at the extremely
low price of $3.00 per gallon, all ex
press charges pre-paid. It is put up in
a box wired and sealed with no marks
or brands so no one can know what the
box contains. In no case do we ship
less than two gallons, but you can
divide the order in two one gallon
packages if desired, which allows you
