Cotton is still very low. Con

the price of cotton to 10 cents per j
pound, as many predicted.

solved the problem, and poured

Ordination of John Lake.
Last Sunday morning a most
solemn and impressive service was
held in our village Baptist Church.
This was the ordination of John
Lake to the ministry. So well
known and beloved by all classes
of our citizens is this youug dis
ciple that a large congregation was
in attendance and with sympa
thetic hearts gave wrapt attentiou
to the interesting services.
The sermon on the occasion was
preached by Rev. J. H. Boldridge,
of Batesburg, from Luke 17tb
chapter, 20th and 21st verses :
"And when he was demanded of
the Pharisees, when the kingdom
of God should come, he answered
them and said, The kingdom of
God cometh not with observation :
Neither, shall they say, Lo here !
orlo there! for behold, the king
dom of God is within you."
Mr. Boldridge's effort was a mas
terful one in which he expounded
the differences between the king
dom of Christ, established within
the hearts and souls of men, and
the mere human organization of
the church with its varied denomi
nations and its frequent failures
and mistakes. In clear and forci
ble language the speaker portrayed
the beauties of this spiritual king
dom to which all who love Christ
belong, and th-i obligation resting
upon all to labor and pray for its
extension until the glorious day
when the saved ot all the ages
Jesv and Gentile, Scythian, Greek,
bond and free-shall crown Jesus
Lord of all.
Mr. Mealing made a beautiful
prayer, during which the hands of
the'three ministers were laid upon
the candidate and John Lake or
dained to preach the gospel.
Dr. Gwaltuey, the beloved pastor,
then delivered the charge. In
toucning words ho referred to the
consecration of the young minister
asa sequence of the piety of father,
and grandfather, and other kins
men for many g?n?ration? baca;
he gently and affectionately ad
monished him to hold fast to the
strong words of Holy Writ and to
purity of life and faith, and wel
comed him to the great brotber
h )od of ministers who preach
Christ and Him crucified to dying
With a vcice which trembled
with deep emotion the newly or
dained minister pronounced the
benediction, and the solemn ser
vice came to a close.
Col. Sam Strom was in town on
Tuesday. In a little talk with UK
he said that during a life of eighty
odd years he had never become so
well acquainted with old man
"Hard Times" as during the year
1S93. He went on to say : "I don't
owe a dollar in the world that I
know of, and I haven't got the dol
lar to pay it if I did, but I am per
fectly satisfied, nevertheless-just
as well this way as any other." A
philosophical way to view things,
and one that we commend to our
Mr. Mealing's Sermon.
Edgefield ie alwa\ s delighted to
hear the Rev. John P. Mealing.
This pleasure was afforded us on
Sunday evening last in the Baptist
Church. The theme selected was
drawn from the epistle of James
4:7 and 10:
"Submit yourselves therefore
unto God. Resist the devil and he
will flee from you."
"Humble yourselves in the sight
of the Lord, and he will lift you
This discourse was eminently
practical, especially in the allu
dions and application to the strin
gency of the times, showing that
all extremes in life are times of
great temptation as well as of
grand opportunities. Either the
condition of much prosperity or
tho exigencies of poverty are crises
of danger as well as of possible
blessings. Agur wisely said : "Give
me neither poverty nor riches ; *
* * Lest I be full and deny Thee,
and say, Who is the Lord? or lest
I be poor and steal." Let the
emergencies with which the om
ing ye.ir will be fraught, give us
opportunities to glorify God, in
submitting to His providences.
Mr. Mealing said that he did not
hear much in these times of the
providence of God, that people
seemed to think that God had
created tho world and then left it
alone. Not so, God's hand is in
everything, the "same yesterday,
to-day, and forever." "My brethren
count it all joy when ye fall into
divers temptations." Knowing that
the trying of your faith worketh

Old Counties vs. New.
The following is an extract from
the speech of Hon. W. H. Yeldell
in the House of Representatives
on the bill to establish Greenwood
county. It shows that although
an advocate of the bill, he yet had
a fond recollection of old Edge
field and has not forgotten past
favors and honors ;
"It is perfectly natural for the
old counties to regret our separa

Speaker, there are times when w

Judges to replace some of the ole
officials with new men. That the
old Judges were conscientioui
men learned in the law goes with
out saying, and in their retiremenl
from public office they take with
them the respect of the people
They have served their time,
faithfully and as the light
appeared to them. They have nol
been removed to make place foi
other men, but they have not been
re-elected-that is all, and it is
uo discredit to them. They were
not at first elected for life, but for
a term, and this alone should
show that the sovereign people,
through their representatives in
the Legislature, retained the
power and privilege to either
re-elect them or supply the places
held by them with others. We
take no stock in the wholesale
denunciation of such action on
the part of the Legislature that is
boing indulged in by some of the
newspapers, neither do we take
part in ihe attempt to belittle the

Their very elevation is sufficient
to prove that the people, the best
judges, are satisfied that they will
wear the ermine with dignity and
credit. That spirit which en
deavors to inculcate the idea that
because a mantnever was a judge
he should never be a judge is old
and effete, and smacks too much
of royal oligarchy to influence the
action of the free-born men of
Carolina, and should not be con

??Until Hell Freezes Over"
DENVER. Dec. 21.-A meeting
of business men of t^e State to
day adopted a resolution disap
proving Gov. Waite's proposition
to call an extra session of the
Legislature. The Governor was
invited to address the meeting. He
said much could be done to relieve
the laboring men, and he further
thought it was high time that the
people of the Sta'e showed the
East that the silver issue is not
dead. Said he :
.'The people should not look
tamely upon the insults from the
present Administration, the gold
bugs and the old parties. I am in
favor of fighting for free coinage at
16 to 1 not only all summer but
until hell freezes over."
The Governor shouted this ex
pression at the top of his voice
and then left the hall. Some of the
business men laughed and some

an invention that will warn people

BL?jDON KILLS A NEGRO.
And is Himself Shot, it is sup
posed?Fatally,in the Melee.
The following account ot the
killing of a negro by Jack Bladon,
formerly of Edgefield, is taken
from one of the Spartanburg
papers of Saturday last.
"At eight o'clock last night the
first blood was drawn and as a
result, Henry Palmer lies stiff in
death and Constable John Bladon
languishes with a mortal wound.
Henry Palmer ?B a tall mulatto
negro who formerly drove the
wagon for the Piedmont Steam
Yesterday afternoon the con
stabulary went before Justice
Gentry and procured warrants for
his arrest and also search warrants.
The men went to Palmer's house
in Hamburg and attempted to
arrest the negro when the fight
WHAT JACKSON SAYS :
Constable Jackson says that he,
Bladon and Pearson went over to
serve the warrants- They knocked
at the door and told them to open.
Palmer came to the door
and Bladon told him to consider
himself under arrest.
Henry Palmer jerked back and
seemed to be tryiug to pull a pis
tol. Just then the woman came
with a gun and Henry told her to
shoot. She cocked both barrels
and drew down on me when I
grabbed the gun. Bladon and the
negro were scuffling near the door
when a shot was fired. It was just
outside the door and Bladon was
shot. Henrv Palmer shot him. I
don't know what it was he shot
him with. Did not see but the
one shot gun there, that was the
one I took from the woman. That
gun is still loaded and was not
fired. I think if Bladon is shot
with |6hot, it must have been a
pistol loaded with shot. He did
not have a gun. I did not examine
toseeifthe negro had a pistol.
Bladon was shot and I carried him
to town to see a doctor.
CARRIE PALMER'S TALE :
Carrie Palmer is an intelligent
looking mulatto woman, the wife
of the dead man. She told the
story of the killing as follows:
The three men, Bladon, Jackson
and Pearson, came to the door and
my little brother opened it. Thc
men came in and two of thom
grabbed Henry and told him to
consider himself under arrest" The
father man grabbed tho gun lying
on the bed.
Themen got to scuffling and
just after they goL out of the door
a shot was fired. This is the shot
that struck Bladon. Bladon fired
then and Henry was trying to get
away from him. The two men had
hold of him and when they got
outside the yard Henry was about
to twist himself away when Bladon
fired again and killed Henry
She said that her husband had
no weapon of any kind on the
place except the shot gun, that
he never had a pistol there in two
She says that there were two
men besides the constables stand
ing outside the door, and one of
them had a shot gun.
In this she is corroborated by
Mary Hail, her mother, who says
she saw a man outside the door
with a gun just about the time
Bladon was shot; that the man
had the gun up in front of him
when she saw him
Jackson says there were men
outside the house, but he did not
know them. Did not see any gun
except the one he brought away.
Bladon was not in a condition
to talk, but says the negro shot
His wounds were attended to by
Dr. L. J. Blake, who says that it
is load of small shot, which en
tered slightly from the rear, in the
soft part of the small of the back.
Several of the shots lodged in the
muscles, and some entered the
stomach. It is impossible to tell
the extent of the wound, but he
considers it dangerous,
. SOME THEORIES.
It is evident that Bladon was
shot just outside the door. While
Jackson says Palmer was trying
to draw a pistol he did not see a
pistol on his pei son or in his
hands. He did not have a gun and
no pistol was seen about him by
anybody. Bladon was shot in the
rear with a shot gun.
These facts seem to give
strength to the woman's statement
about the two men standing out
side while the raiding party went
in and it is the belief of many
who heard the story, that an out
sider, who has not yet .figured
fired the shot that hit Bladon.
Others think that the negro
fired the load of shot fj?om a pistol.

NOTICE TO INVENTORS.
There was neyer a time in the his
tory of our country when the demand
for inventions and improvements in
the arts and sciences generally was so
great as now. The conveniences of
mahkind in the factory and work
shop, the household, on the farm, and
in officiai life, require continual ac
cessions to the appurtenances and
implements of each in order to save
labor, time, and expense. The political
change in the administration of the
government does not affect the progress
of the American inventor, wt o being
on the alert* and ready to perceive the
existing deficiencies, does not permit
the affairs of government to deter him
from quickly conceiving the remedy to
overcome existing discrepencies. Too
great care cannot be exercised in choos
nga competent and skillfully attor
ney to prepare and prosecute an ap-j
plication for patent. Valuable intersts
have been lost and destroyed in in
numerable instances by the employ
ment of incompetent counsel, and
especially is this advice applicable to
those who adopt the "No patent, no
pay" system. Inventors who entrust
their business to this class of attorneys
do so at imminent risk, as the breadth
and strength of the patent is never J
considered in view of a quick endeavor
to g.^t an allowance and obtain thf
fee then due. THE PRKSS CLAIMS

women and for young folks, interested

sports, in society, and in all the lighter

the day. It is a full, clean, and com
plete newspaper, conducted with in-J
telligence for intelligent people.

trade and the benefit Of the few; an
honest dollar that the band of toil
may receive without loss and pay over
without shame; a liberal expenditure
for pensions to veterans who need and
deserve them, and to no others; the
Democratic party is a better instru
mentality of popular government than
the Republican; and in keeping that!

corps of distinguished cor-tributors,"

special lines, it draws on the highest
order of talent, the men best titted by
position and trainingto treat the lead
ing topics of the day. In fiction, the
most popular story-writers contribute
to its columns. Superb drawings by
the foremast artists illustrate its spe

table event of public interest : it con
tains portraits of the distinguished
men and women who are making the
History of the time, while special at
tention is given to the Army and Navy,
Amateur Sport, and Music and the
Drama, by distinguished experts. In
a word, HARPER'S WEEKLY combines
the- news features of the daily paper
and the artistic and literary qualities

character of the review.
