The grip may be said to be
?pid?mie in Edgefield county. It
has invaded a great many homes
already and few familes will
escape the disease. Those who
hnve not had it mav as well ex

preparation necessary is simply to
keep the system in good condition
avoid draughts and exposure and
when attacked stay in doors for at
least a week. The special danger
is of relapse, after you think your

pneumonia supervenes. More
rarely a hacking cough comes on

so many deaths within two weeks.
First Mr. S. C. Cartledge died after

who had visited his dying brother,
died very suddenly. The death of
the third brother, Mr. James Cart

came the demise of Mrs. Jerry
Cartledge. Now the news comes
of the death of Mrs. S. C. Cart

of the seven orphans she leaves.

still survive have the sympathy of

That Blessed Box.
Some time before Christmas the
good people of Edgefield contrib
uted a box of clothiug, blankets,
etc., for the sufferers from the
cyclone in Beaufort county. The
railroads kindly forwarded the box
free of freight charges, and it
reached its destination on the 28th
of December. The gentleman who
distributed the articles to the needy
onesjwrites as follows : "Everything
in the box was highly appreciated
and distributed to those most in
need. Some of the things were
given to a young white man.
Charles Clement, who with wife
and babe had to leave their house
in the raging storm and walk half
a mile to seek shelter at Bolan Hall.
Their home was totally destroyed
and the few things they found scat
tered about the morning after the
storm have since been burned.
Their little baby died from the ter
rible exposure. We gave garments
to another white family of nine,
who had lost their crop and were
very destitute. We found the
children barefooted and scantily
clad. They were very grateful and
glad to get anything. One negro
woman laughed at a great rate, ghe
was so delighted at her share of the
contents of the box. We gave a
shirt and pair of pants to a colored
man who said: "I'se mighty glad
tor dese, fer I dess wear my trunk
right now." All to whom the things
were given expressed their fervent
gratitude to the kind donors."

Good Letter From Upper Clioty
MR EOITOR: The year 1893 bal
gone, and '94 has brought man}
changes in this section.
Having lived here" twenty-five
years, we have never seen so muct
moving, and neaily every fannel
is trying to better bis condition
All are settling down to business
airain, in spite of hard times. We
hardly know how to begin but all
have the same determination ir
them, and as they reflect upon the
past,will try to improve in future
Why can't the farmers be
prevailed upon this year to raise
sufficient at home to live on and
kt cotton alone. 1S93 was the
hardest year the farmers have evei
experienced but the most of them
have more to begin on this year
than they had last year. 1894 will
be a hard pull for us.
Mr. Editor, as an educator of
the people put your shoulder to
the wheel and make a long pull
and a strojg pull to make the
people understand that they oau't
eat cotton. When the farmer
6uffer8,editors, merchants, and all
suffer. But as I write, echo seems
to answer "no cotton." Cotton is
our ruin ; however cotton and poli
ties seem to be the go.
Speaking of politics there would
be less talk if some of the little
anti papers would stop their howl
ing. They aro only strengthening
Tillman with the peopb. If they
would stop villifying Tillman and
his party, the people would soon
get together again, aud be one
party, The articles of your next
door neighbor writing about the
June Bug legislature, only hurtp
himself. If the "Big Paper" were
to tie a string around the logs of
Parks and Yeldell they would fly
away with string "Big Paper and
all and not break their legs either,
but wa are for Tillman first last
and all the time, and look foi ward
to the time when his voice will
ring ip the United States Senate
and John Gary Evans or Unole
Hodge be Governor,
.The grip is pretty general in
this section. Nearly every family
haa a case of it. It was a grief
to us to hear of the death of Sam,
Jerry, and Dr. Cartledge. They
are almost like home folks with us.
We hope the gnp will soon be no
more, and the two parties will get

Christmas at Red Hill.
MR. EDITOR ; Christmas of 1893
has passed away, but carries with
it into the clark shadows of obliv

LAURENS, January 5.-The Coun
ty Alliance met to-day. About
forty delegates were present.
Speeches were made by Dr. Samp
son Pope and Senator Irby. Non
members of the Alliance, but in
sympathy with it, were admitted
to the speaking,. The following
resolution^ offered by J. -Andy
Jones werepassed unaimously by
"Be it resolved by the county
Alliance now assembled.
First. That the Alliancemen of
Laurens county reasert their
allagience to the 'principles of the
nation al and State Alliance and
all the planks of the Ocala plat
form ; and that a candidate whose
stomach is too weak to swallow it
need not expect our support.
Second. That in State politics,
as members of the Democratic
party, and as believers in and as
members of the reform movement
of that party, we approve of the
calling of a convention to name
candidates who are in accord with
it to be voted for in the general
primary election ; but we insistas a
matter of righf. that the convention
shall not be held sooner than the
first of July of this year, for the
reason that we want to, see and
hear the sentiments of the candi
dates among the Reformers. To
do otherwise is f orestalling
the people and re-enacting tae
tricks of the ring that controlled
this State, so long-to wit: the
naming of candidates who are tin
known to the masseB of this State
and in whose candidacy they have
"Third. We hold ourselves
bound to support tho nominees of
the July convention in the pri
mary election io September but
demand that simon pure Re
formers be named, men against
whom naught can be said as to
their loyalty to truth, to the Al
liance and to the Reform move
Fourth. That great care must
be used, both in calling and hold
the the township and county
primary conventions, to send dele
gates to said State July conven
tion, and we recommend that
Governor Tillman select three
Reformers who will act with him
and draft rules for the calling
and holding of said township and
count}7 primary conventions, so
that none but Reformers will
participate in the election of
flakgfttefl to thc July State conven
tion, and that the four gentlemen
referred to above, call the said
July convention, if such be thc
sentiment of the Reform move
"Fifth. That we further suggest
that in the naming of candidates
from United States Senator to
Adjutant and Inspector General,
the convention Bhall not ignore
that element in the Reform faction
who are non-Alliancemen and
ineligible to membership in the
Alliance, but who are true to the
principles of the Alliaace and the
"Sixth. That the Laurensville
Herald, the Columbia Daily Reg
ister, the Cotton Plant, Piedmont
Headlight and other Reform
papers in the State, are requested
to publish these resolutions."
Resolutions were offered by
County Auditor 0. G. Thompson,
and adopted, condemning the
"factious aud criminal opposition
of anti-reform leaders and news
papers to the dispensary lasv,"
holding them responsible for the
troubles in enforoing it and parti
oulatly the recent bloodshed and
whipping in Spartanburg, and
pledging the Alliance to uphold
Governor Tillman in his efforts to
make the law effectual.
