Never Missed a Vote.

Inspector of Dispensaries.
Hon. W. H. Yeldell has been
appointed inspector of dispensaries
for the State. His duties are to
visit all the dispensaries and ex
amino (he books to see that they
are properly and methodically
kept. It is not a part of his du
ties to taste the liquors. If it was
he would fail to perform it, for
oven from his grei?n and salad days
he has touched not, tasted not,
handled not the unclean thing. In
this respect Pony's soul is as
white as a rain-washed bone.
Noblest Roman of Them All.
The friends of Hon. W. H. Tim
merman are beseeching him to
stand for Congress from this dis
trict. This gentleman advises us,
however, that he has not the re
motest idea of so doing. Dr. Tim
merman would make an excellent
member, and if Edgefield has a
man within her borders more to be
trusted-a democratic war-horse
more ready for the fray than he
we are not advised of the fact.
But he will not oppose Col. Tal
bert, the incumbent, who has had
a hard s'.ruggle of it to attain his
preseut position, and who should
hold it at least for two terms, and
as long as he worthily discharges
the duties ot his high position.
Evans & Evans.
This is the tittle of anew Edge
field law firm, and consists of N.
G. Evans, of our local bar, and
John Gary Evans, of Aiken. N. G.
Evans has for the past eight or ten
years been practicing as the junior
member of Gary & Evans, from
which firm Judge Ernest Gary has
retired by reason of bis elevation
to the bench. Gentleman George
has already won his spurs as a
lawyer and counsellor, and needs
nb introduction to Edgefield peo
ple. Of John Gary Evans it will
be only necessary to stale that he
is ono of the many brainy and
brilliant chips from the old block,
and that he was the very Ajax of
debate in the South Carolinu State
Senate, and gives a promise and
has the potency for still higher
achievements in the future.
Croft & Tillman.
We call the attention of our
readers to the taw card of Messrs.
Croft & Tillman in this issue of
the ADVERTISER. This is certainly
a strong legal team, and will win
cases and fame in any tribunal
vhere justice sits. Of Capt. Till
man we have had occasion to
.speak before, and of Col. Croft it
is scarcely necessary to speak for
Edgefieldpeople already know that
nis k-gal acumen and attainments
ire of the highest order. Of his
integrity as a lawyer, which should

we have only to say that, had
Diogoues lived iu these days and
.jone about with a lighted lamp in
he day time looking for an honest
man, he would have stoppnd when
he met with Col. Geo. W. Croft
and, being of few words, simply re?
marked, blow out the light.
A Potentiality of Devilment.
Should Uncle George Tillman
move to Edgefield and occupy the
Griffin house on the hill, as is now
the rumor, there would be living
within a turkey-yelp of each other
the Nestor of the Edgefield bar,
the hero of Brandy Station, and
the sage of Clarks Hill. What a
power of political devilment these
three could kick up in Edgefield
county in 1894, if so minded.
Had Him Down Wrong:.
It has been currently reported in
certain sections of the county that
Representative J. H. Edwards
voted during the last session of the
Legislature for the establishment
of Greenwood county. There isn't
a word of truth in the rumor. He
voted tho other way eyery time,
although be had a big majority
against him in the House. Mr.
Edwards doesn't object to smaller
counties, but he thinks that in
their establishment some reference
should be had to the shape in
which the old oneB are to be left.
A Week of Prayer.
MR. EDITOR: Our beautiful new
church was the scene throughout
the past week of au unusually in
teresting meeting, held by the Bap
tist Woman's Mission Society.
Thes3 societies are existent in
nearly all Baptist communities as
auxiliary to the Southern Baptist
Convention. The one in question
was organized a little over two
years ago, and the week of prayer
which ended on Saturday last was
appointed fay the Woman's Mis
sionary Union and was one of a
world's united effort to hold prayer
meetings, not only for our own
weakness and shortcomings, but
that we might also be humble in
struments in H?B hands to pave
the way for the saving of souls iu
heathen lands, Africa, Chiua,
Japan, etc, Praise was also offered
up for what had already been ac
The first afteruoon, Jan. 7th, the
meeting was conducted by the
president, Miss Florence Adams.
There was a good attendance, and
earnest prayer went up for the
speedy conversi?n of the world.
An appropriate article was read
from Pierson's soul-stirring book
the "Crisi? of Missions."
On Monday, Miss Sallie Carwile
presided. Miss Lou Gary, presi
dent of the Woman's Mission So
ciety of the M. E. Church, lead in
prayer to God to help in this great
work of sending help to these
white fields that are ready for the
harvest. Articles were read on
foreign missions by Mrs. Ida Shep
pard and Miss Mamie Lake.
Miss Lou Gary, also read a
very humorous selection, a sugges
tion of the fact that there are wo
men who do not believe in foreign
missions. "Don't let the women
have anything to do with saving
their poor heathen sisters from
eternal death, let the men go.
Charity begins at home, and as
a proof this she had just had a
beautiful new dress made a la
mode and by a woman, too." There
was no meeting on Tuesday after
noon on account of the inclem
ency of the wea: Lt r.
Wednesday afternoon, Miss Belle
Mima presiding, the meeting had a
special interest. The Christmas
offering was gathered in. Suita
ble hymns were sung, and a short
and pathetic story read entitled
"Little Blossom, the Japanese
Girl." Prayer was offered up by
Dr. Gwaltuey. The offering
amounted to $17.27.
Thursday Miss Mamie Addison
conducted the meeting. The open
ing exercises consisted of the read
ing of the scriptural lesson, taken
from 2 Cor. 8:1-12, prayer, and
song. Christian liberality was the
subject. A well read article from
Miss Jell Richards enhanced the
interest of the meeting.
Miss Hettie Sheppard presided
in the Friday afternoon meeting,
the subject being "Papal Countries,
More Missionaries." Miss Mamie
Lake's reading on Brazil was found
very instructive and interesting.
Saturday afternoon's meeting
ended the series, and was presided
over by Miss Mary Lou Lanham.
Miss Lou Gary gave a beautiful
illustration, which we shall at
tempt to repeat:
'.Two gentlemen were standing
in an art gallery, where many noted
beautiful paintings were placed.
Each searched for the picture that
seemed to him the most noble.
After a brief separation they met
again, to tell the result of their
quest. They stood before a large
grand looking paintiug, ?epresent
iug a wild stretch of ocean and
amidst the beating waves a cross ;
a woman clung with both arms lo
this her only refuge, the symbol of
Christ and the despairing immor
"No, there is selfishness in that,
said one, look on this painting.
Another stretch of mad waves.
The helpless womau clinging with
one hand to the cross, and tho
other hand uplifting a drowning
foim." This might illustrate the
unselfish work of missions.
The mission society is becoming
very interesting. Some consecrated
women and young girls belong to
this noble band. Perhaps oneamong
them may be like Miss Lottie Moon,
and many others, and sail across
the Sffis to Japan, China, Africa,
or Thibi-t in this great cause.
M. E. LAKE,
THE NEW JUEY LAW
It Was Approved December 18,
1893, and Is Now the Law.
The law is entitled "An act to
amend Chapter LXXXVII of the
General Statutes relating to juries
and entitled ''Of Juries."
It reads as follows :
Section 1. That chapter eighty
seven, section 2234, of the General
Statutes be amended by striking
out said section 2234 and inserting
instead thereof the following:
Section 2234. The county auditor,
the county treasurer, and the
clerk of the court of common pleas
and general sessions of each
county, shalt constitute the board
of jury commissioners for their
Section 2. That section 2235 of
the said chapter be repealed and
the following ioserted thereof:
Section 2235. That the said county
auditor, couLty treasurer, and
clerk of the court of common
pleas and general sessions, shall
perform the duties required of
them as jury commoissioners
Section 3. That section 2255 of
the said chapter be repealed and
the following be inserted thereof:
Section 2255. Whenever it shall
be necessary to supply any de
ficiency in the number of graudor
petrit jurors duly drawn, whether
cauB?d by challenges or otherwise,
it shall be the duty of the jury
commissioners under the directions
of the court to draw from the
special apartment in the jury box
known as the tales box, such
number of fit and compenteut
persons to serve as jurors as ibu
court shall deem necessary to fill
6uch deficiency. That it shall be
the duty of the clerk of court to
keep such jury box in his custody.
Section 4. The jury box shall
be provided with three locks, each
different. The key to one shall
be kept by the clerk of court, one
by the auditor and one by the
treasurer, so that no two of said
commissioners shall hold keys to
the same lock.
Sectiou 5. This act shall go
into effect immediately upon its
approval by the Governor.
An Appeal to Our Town Couucil.
MR. EDITOR: AS you doubtless
have noticed, our "City Fathers"
have been doing some spleudid
work on our streets and sidewalks
by way of grading the streets and
levelling up and sanding the side
walks, and otherwise improving
our highways-and they are enti
tled to due credit therefor. And
while, Mr. Editor, I disclaim be
ing a fault-finder or constitutional
growler, yet I do think our town
authorities should take some steps
towards beautifying the town, and
I know of no better way for them
to do so than by planting out shade
trees. Many of our sidewalks
would be greatly adorned and made
more beautiful by a regular or
continuous line of shade trees.
And now is a good time-perhaps
the proper time-to put them out.
Do, Mr. Editer, prevail upon Capt.
Adams, our worthy Mayor, and
upon th? other members of coun
cil, to take action in this matter at
"Set out trees along the highway,
Place them thick on either side."
For soon it will be too late for
them to do so during their present
term of office. Yes, beg, implore
"Set out ti ees! upon the common,
Ashes, lindens, poplars, birch;
Set them out around the school house,
Place them thick about the church,
Have the children's playground shaded
And the public walks as well,
And the joys from these arising
Coming ages glad will tall.
These shall live and grow and gladden
While we molder 'neath their leaves.
Let us then improve the present
Leave behind us priceless trees."
THE SITUATION CRITICAL.
Secretary of the Treasury Car
lisle has made a supplement?! re
port to Congress, now in session,
in which he urges that body to do
something, and do it quickly, to re
lieve the treasury. He says:
"On account of this critical con
dition of the Treasury, I have con
sidered it my duty in addition to
the earnest recommendations con
tained in ray annual report, to ap
pear twice before your committee,
and after full explanations of the
situation urge prompt 1< gislative
action on this subject. With the
permission of the committee I have
prepared and presented for its
consideration a bill which if
promptly parsed, would, in my
opinion, meet all the requirements
of the situation, by providing the
uecessary means for decaying the
public expenses, and replenish the
coin reserve to such an extent as
to assure the maintenance of the
parity of all forms of United
"While this proposed measure of
rulief has not yet been disposed of
or considered by the Committee,
the great diff?rences of opinion
which are known to exist in both
branches of Congress, regarding
the propriety of additional or
amended authority to issue bonds
in any form or for au> purpose,
render it doubtful whether new
legislation upon the subject can
be secured in time to provide the
nieauB wbice are imperatively de
manded in order to preserve the
credit and honor of the Govern
ment. Authority to issue and sell
bonds for the purpose of main
taining specie payments was ex
pressly conferred upon the
Secretary of the Treasury by the
act of Jannry 14th, 1875, but it
has not been exercised since 1879,
and cn account of the high rate of
interest provided for, and the
length of time bonds would have
to run, I have not been satisfied
that such an emergency has here
tofore existed as would clearly
justify their issuance. But
necessity for relief at this time is
urgent, and the prospect of mat
erial improvement in the financial
condition of the Government is so
problematical that unless authority
to issue and sell shorter bonds or
other obligations, bearing a lower
rate of interest than that specified
in the existing law, is granted by
Congress at a very early day, I
shall feel constrained by a 6ense of
public duty to exericise the power
already conferred to the extent, at
least of providing an adequate coin

W. Ii. DOUGLAS Shoes are stylish, easy fit
Xing, and give better satisfaction at thc prices ad.
vcrtiscd than any other make. Try one nair and
bc convinced. The slumping of \v. L. Douglas*
name and price on the bottom, which guarantees
their value, saves thousands of dollars annually
to those who wear them. Dealers who push thc
sale of W. L. Douglas Shoes gain customers,
which helps to increase the sales on their full line
of goods. They can afford to sell at a less profit,
and we believe you can save money by buying ali
your footwear of the dealer advertised below.
