Hard times parti' s are all the

are festooned with strings of red
pepper aud pine tops. The refresh

sweet milk served in wooden plat

occasionally in Georgia, but on

seven days in the week, but we
don't call 'em parties.

all acceptation, that if there were
no women in th? land, there would
be no churches. At the Trinity
Church entertainment, 100. front

where the Rabbi professed to have
a church does the showing up:
TREVANDRUM, Oct. 7,1893.
DEAR DR. VASS :
Your letter ccmes to me, as Mr.
Masteer is in England. Never hav
ing heard of any Christian Jews
to the L. M. S., or southern part of
Travancore, I sent it to Dr. Hodges,
C. M. S. (Church Missionary So
ciety ) Bishop of Travancore. His
secretary writes me for him : "Ser
gius is a gross impostor, for there
are no Christian Jews in Travan
core." That venerable Archdeacon
Koshi, D.D., a native gentleman
of long experience of this land,
says : 11 have never heard of such
a person as Sergius, or of a Jewish
Christian congregation in Travan
core. The whole story appears to
be a black species of imposture."
This is to my mind couclusive,
that is if his reference to Travan
core is correct. This, of course, ie
but avery small part of India, and
?ve should know the nanje of the
place where his schools are, to be
quite sure, * * * * I am sorry 1
cannot send you better news. * * *
Yours most sincerely,

Letter from Elmwood.
MR. EDITOR: The oat crop ie
looking remarkably well, more so
than for several years past. If the
season continui s favorable a large
crop will be harvested, as a large
area of land has been planted in
oats. Wheat is also looking well,
but there is not so much planted
as ought to have been ; one great
reason why more was not planted
is there is not a first-class flouring
mu? in the county. Wheat comes
in whpn money is very scarce and
is a great help to the farmers who
have it. It is very common to hear
(..eople say its cheaper to buy than
make flour, etc., but the question
is what are they going to pay with?
If we depend altogether on making
cotton to pay for everything we
will be left out of sight, and never
will catch up.
Farmers complain a great deal
about hard times. Well, I ex
pect times are hard with a great
many people, but most of them
make the times so. It takes six
days' work in every week of the
year to make a good, honest living
and what sort of a living do you
think men make who work three
days in a week, and some times
not so many and then cry out
"hard times 1"
At 10 A. M. to-day Mrs. Permelia
Ouzts died, aged about seventy
eight. For many years she was a
member of the Methodist Church
at McKendree. She was a kind
hearted Christian woman, and in
her death the poor have lost a
friend. She never turned a deaf
ear to those who came to her for
help. Only one week ago to-day
her huebaud, Benjamin Ouzts, was
buried, and on the second of this
month her daughter, Mrs. Jennie
Cartledge, died, and her son-in-law,
Mr. Jerry S. Cartledge, died on
Dec. 28th, 1893. In four weeks
these four persons have diedjeav
ingonly one member of the family,
Mr. Cartledge's little four-year-old
daughter. May the God of the
orphan Bhield and protect her.

A Farmer Speaks On t tor Ell erbe.
MR. EDITOR: There is being
much talk in the county in regard
to who will be Gov. Tillman's suc
cessor in office, and some people
have expressed themselves and
said thal they did not know how
we could dispense with Gov. Till
man as Governor of the State, that
it would be hard to find a man who
would enforce the laws of the
State as he has, having so much
opposition as he ha6 had, and in
the face of so many false misrep
resentations by the antis who as a
general thing never give him any
credit for the many good things he
has done, and blame him for every
thing that happens in the State
whether or not he had anything to
do with it at all. A worthy suc
cessor to Gov. Tillman would be
Hon. W. LT. Ellerbe, the present
Comptroller General, for Governor.
He is a successful farmer, and has
made one of the best Comptroller
Generals we have had since the
war. He has of course all the cor
porations down on him because he
has raised their taxes on a par
with that of the farmers.
He is a young man full of vim,
backbone, force of character, and
determination, and I have no
doubt but that he would execute
the laws of the State with great
firmness and stability of purposa.
Moreover he will stand up to the
farmers, and he tries to make
banks and railroads pay taxes on
their property as they are assessed,
which is right. They have as much
right to pay on the assessed value
of their property as the poor
farmer who is the foundation of
the world, as hie products that he
grows feed the world, yet the farmer
is rather looked upon contemptu
ously by men of other professions
and by the antis as men of no in
telligence, not knowing anything
as to how the State government
ought to he run. Of course the
farmers do not claim to know it all,
but there are some of them who
are about as intelligent as the
averago man of other professions.
Brother farmers you have a right
to be heard, assert your rights,
stand firmly united, and all pull
together, and hold on firm to the
farmers' movement, and do not let
little things divido you because
they were not done just as you
thought they ought to have been;
remember, united we 6tand, divid
ed we fall, and division in the re
form party ranks is just what the
anti croakers want. But I read
and think for myself and cannot
be carried away by every little
breeze that comes along, and es
pecially not by those little June

News and Courier.
WOBURN, Mass., Jan. 26.-Benja
min F. Whittemore, a prominent
citizen, president of the local Cali
fornia Forty-miners' Association
and ex-memb:r of Congress from
South Carolina, died here last
evening, aged 70 years.
Whittemore was born at Maiden,
Mass., on May 18, 1824. He re
ceived au academic education and
engaged in mercantile pursuits un
til 1859, when he entered upon the
ministry in the Methodist Episco
pal Church. He entered the army
during the war as chaplain of the
53d Massachusetts Volunteers ;
served with regiment its entire
term, and then was commissioned
as chaplain of the 30th Massa
chusetts Veteran Volunteers, with
which regiment he remained until
they were mustered out, serving in
the army four years.
After the close of the war he
settled in South Carolina, where he
established a "reconstruction" or
gan called the New Era. He took
a prominent part in organizing the
Republican party in the State, and
acted as chairman of its executive
committee during the reconstruc
tion period. He served as a mern?
ber of the State Constitutional
Conyention, and was elected to the
Stat? Senate. This position he
soon resigned to take a seat in
Congress, to which he was elected
in 1866 and again in 1868.
lu February, 1870, a resolution
was reported to the House for his
expulsion on the charge of selling
cadetships to the naval and mili
tary academies and he promptly
resigned to prevent any action, be
iLg succeeded hy Joseph H. Rainey,
tho first colored mau to be admit
ted to Congress. Whittemore was
subsequently elected to the South
Carolina Senate, but resigned from
that body in May, 1877, and finally
removed to his native State. He
was one of the greatest rascals
sent to South Carolina from the
North and resembled in many of
his characteristics the "missionary
children" who have stolen the
kingdom of Hawaii.
The State of Georgia Wins.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 29.-The Su
preme Court of the United States
affirmed the validity and constitu
tionality of the law passed by the
Georgia Legislature October 16,
1889, providing for the taxation of
the unlocated, transitory property
of the railroads of that State. By
the terms of this law, the prop
erty of a railroad was to be divided
for taxation among the counties
through which it runs, in the pro
position that the number of miles
in each county bore to the full
mileage of the road in the State.
The Columbus Southern Railroad
Company sued for an injunction
to restrain the collection of taxes
assessed under this law, upon the
ground that it waa repugnant to
the provisions of the fourteenth
amendment to the Constitution,
which guarantees the equal pro
tection of the laws of every State
to the inhabitants of that State.

A high-class newspaper for Jie city
reader and for the country home; for
the merchant, the professional man,
the financier, the politician, the teach

honest dollar that the hand 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
party true its alms under sound leader
