There is a farmer doctor living

down every item of expensp, After
the harvests were over and the
crops nil gathered and hcused he
called in a young gentleman of thu
neighborhood who was something
of an accountant, to figure np the
profits. The result was, after a
couple of hours' figuring, that tho
young farmer doctor had made a
net profit of one one-horse load of
pea vines and lo cents in cash.

A Terrible Accident.

(nee Eubanks), was burned to
death while burning to a pile of

late to save her life. She lingered
a few hours in agony, dying that

severely burned in his efforts to
save his wife, and his hands are m
such a mutilated condition that he
has to be fed, and cannot even
takeoff his hat from his head.
Blind Tigers in Edgefield.
The show folks who were here
last week posting bills asked Dis

some of their bills on the dispen

enormous tiger. The next morn

the dispensary lo and behold a
crowd of antis and conservatives
stood nt the door knocking and
waiting. And he said unto them:
"What do .ye here? Are ye not of
those that drink not from dispen
saries, but prefer blind tigers?"
And they answered and said unto
him : "Yea. But is this not a
blind tiger?" Whereat Dispenser
Davis marvelled much. And they
took Dispensers Davis and Kearsey
out and showed them the pictures
ot the tigers in proof of their say
ing, whereupon they all fell down
prone upon the earth and wept for

joy because they had fooled the

Plow On, Hoe On, Work On, and
You'll Get There By and By.
EDITOR ADVERTISER: The small
grain crop in this commuuity is
looking remarkably well, better
than it has for several years, and
if seasons continue on, there will
be a large crop made, which will
be the salvatiou of many poor
farmers, most of them being in
needy circumstances and always
will be unless they change their
mode of farming, by working more
and doing better work, and then
make their supplies at home. No
mau can prosper and do well rest
ing on his oars all the time and
depending on something to turn
up and get him out of the mire.
The right way to do is to go to
work and turn up something. Some
men it seems are expecting the
State and national government to
pass some law that will make
money rattle into their pockets
like pouring peas down on a raw
hide. No that won't do, things
don't work that way. The people
have to support the govern
ment, not the government the peo
ple. Some men are always rpady
to blame the merchant, the banker,
the lawyer, the doctor, or somebody
bocauee they don't get on well and
make a good living, when really
there is nobody to blame but them
selves. I have heard men say they
might as well take their musket
on their shoulder and fight the war
over again the way things were,
that things were so arranged that
the farmer could not get a fair and
remunerative price for what he
made. But where is the enemy
entrenched and who are they going
to fight? The best implement to
fight with now is the plow and the
hoe, the reaper and the mower, and
from early morn uti til dewy eve. .
Elbert Padgett, colored, mail
carrier from Elmwood to Johnston,
accidently shot himself in the leg
with a pistol. As luck would have
it for him, the wound is slight and
not dangerous. I would advise all
boys not to have anything to do
with pistols as they are dangerous
things to fool with.

Items from Zo fir School.
MR. EDITOR: If you will allow
us a little space we will give you
a few items from our school. Our
teacher is Miss Mamie Bouknight
from Newberry. She is an excellent
teacher. I think we have the right
lady in, the right place. We have
become so very much interested,
we feel like others are too. We all
like Very much to go to school.
We have had fifty-three scholars,
but some of the boys, we are sorry
to say, will soon have to stop to

it will do them good to see a piece
from their old school.

NOTICE TO INVENTORS.
There was never 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
mankind in the factory and work
shop, the household, on the farm, and
in ollicial 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 aiFect the progress
of the American inventor, wi 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 existingdiscrcpencies. Too
jreat care cannot be exercised in choos
uga competent and skillfully attor
ney to prepare ami prosecute an ap
plication for patent. Valuable intersts
have been lost and destroyed in in
numerable instances by the employ
ment of incompetent counsel, and
.specially is this advice applicable to
those who adopt the "No patent, no
pay" system. Inventors wno entrust
Lheir business to this class ol'attorneys
